Left Panel Default State

Recommended Posts

When I open Evernote in Windows, the tags list in the left panel opens with certain nested tags expanded and certain nested tags collapsed. It's as if there was a point in the past that I had the nested tags list in that state and then it was saved as the default state. Now when I change the state of nested tags and close Evernote it will not reopen in the same state, it always defaults to the older state. Is there a way to have Evernote open with the nested tags in the same state as when I closed Evernote? I've tried closing Evernote with File->Exit and with the Windows 'X', but no luck with it remembering the previous state.

Thank you for any help you can offer.

Hi.  Evernote remembers some settings if you File > Exit and then restart,  but those settings become the new default until the next time you File > Exit the app.  If that's not working for you I don't have any alternatives - sorry.  :mellow:

I had the same problem but have figured out a workaround.  Thought I'd share it with the world:

To control the default state of the nested tags on the left panel:

  • Navigate to View > Left Panel > Show Tags and make sure that it unticked (so the tags disappear from the left panel)
  • Navigate to View > Tags to look at the tags in the main window
  • Expand or collapse the nested tags to the default you want
  • File > Exit (note, must be this - not clicking the X in the top right of the window
  • Reopen Evernote
  • Navigate to View > Left Panel > Show Tags and set it to be ticked
  • Tags should appear in the left panel in the default state you want

Hope that works for you!
