Editor - Top 4 Wishlist for improvements

Recommended Posts

I love Evernote and pay for premium, but the buggy and outdated editor is a daily annoyance. Instead of adding new features, As a note taking tool, Evernote should focus on getting the editor right before anything else.


Top 4 Wishes for Evernote editor improvements

  1. A decent and error free editor. A fair benchmark could be the MS Outlook 2010 e-mail editor (windows).
    1. Lists - Better management of numbers, bullets, indents. The list feature should be much improved.
    2. Tables - Decent table formatting (color and borders)
  2. Text Styles
  3. Template feature
  4. Above features also on mobile devices (especially iPad) + insert rule

I agree with your 4 requests.  I personally would put them in this order:


1. Improve table creation and edits - possibly through a separate table editor dialog that allows enhanced control over look and feel of table

2. Improve template integration.  You can fake it today, but its a hassle. 

3. Defined text styles would be nice for assigning header levels and color schemes

4. Work seamlessly across all platforms, including the syncing of named styles and templates

1) Give an option to make bulleted lists collapsible: I mainly use Evernote to organize huge amounts of facts in bulleted lists that have several levels of bulleting, and this would allow me to navigate & edit them much more quickly.

2) Allow embeddable hyperlinks to *specific locations* in another note. Some of my large notes are starting to contain cross-reference to specific other sections of other notes. Embedding just a link to the entire huge note means I then have to navigate within the note to find just that one needle-in-a-haystack fact.

3) Better scrolling left-right when editing bulleted lists? When editing bulleted lists with several levels on smaller screens, items that are more than 2-3 levels deep seem to just render off the right side of the screen entirely, making it hard to search & edit. At the same time, editing these types of lists on large screens, the higher-up bullets (1st/ 2nd level, etc.) often render off and to the left, ie if you jump to a 4th level bullet and start editing, the screen renders with the bullet fully to the left, but if you then jump to a 1st/ 2nd level bulleted item, that 1st/2nd bullet remains off the screen to the left, so you can't read the beginning. Can this be changed / fixed/ user-customized? I understand I may be asking for a pony here.

4) This is a real nitpick, but the find / replace window that pops up at the bottom of the screen will often obscure the text I'm writing/ editing at the time.

Otherwise, Good God do I love your product!
