    Evernote Wizards. Please, give us a dark theme. My eyes are bleeding with how bright your default theme is. (both web & desktop) No suprise, it is mostly white. A great choice for clean design, but ultimately a fail for intensive use. Please, give us a dark theme. Best Regards, Your Paying Customer

    Share appears to have replaced reminders so I now have to dig to create reminders. I've created hundreds of reminders over the years ... I've shared two notes, so easier to find the actions you most use? ... not for me. FWIW.

    I cannot believe that something as basic as the info button got moved to a bloody submenu entry (along with like four or five other button actions). How on earth could anyone ever think that the way to make it "easier to find the actions you use most" involves REMOVING a half-dozen or so super convenient miniature shortcut buttons and moving their actions into entries under an incredibly awkward and inconvenient to use submenu? And why is the share button now an utterly obnoxious color that doesn't even begin to fit in with the rest of the color theme? Please at least give us an option to hide that share button if nothing else, it's extremely distracting, especially now that it's the only remaining actual button in that area...

    Dear Evernote : I'm not going anywhere. I just ask that Spaces and password protection be made available to ALL premium users. Fast track feature development for ALL users, not just teams. Get creative. Surprise us. You've been a success tool for me since 2004. Let's take EN to the next level. I'll wait. 🙂

    Yeah, it is. Burying features to add more clicks to the workflow is a big deal.

    I feel on the biggest missing features is native support for Markdown. Please add native Markdown to Evernote.

    This is a definition of 'easier' that I am unfamiliar with.

    This new unmovable, unchangeable, "SHARE" button in the top right is just not right, to say lightly

    Hi All, Many of you have asked for templates and we’re thrilled to announce that they’re here! In the past, we’ve offered templates in the form of sample notes that you can copy to a notebook, then duplicate to reuse. While this has been a popular workaround for a long time, we feel templates deserve an easier solution and better home in our product. Now we offer a way to quickly find and apply a template when you create a new note. You can pull from our gallery of 30+ pre-designed templates and save them to your account. In addition, if you subscribe to Plus, Premium, or Business, you can turn any of your existing notes into templates. Your personal template gallery can be accessed from any new note by clicking the Templates button. From there you can find templates on our website, search your saved templates, edit template names, delete templates from your account, and apply templates to a note. You can find more information here: Blog post How-to Videos There’s more to come for templates, so stay tuned. As always, please feel free to start a separate discussion for feedback/suggestions, or feel free to reach out to me directly!

    I agree. @Evernote: May I suggest that you thoroughly test and get user feedback on changes to long-established UI BEFORE you publish a GA release? Just because some new kid on the Dev Team thinks it is a good idea because it follows some esoteric UI guidelines, does NOT make it so. IMO, you should NEVER change well-established UI without very good cause to do so, and without thorough end-user testing. SW development 101.

    You made simply deleting a note a two action process by hiding it under the (“…”)!! This is the worst idea ever... I obviously am deleting notes all the time to clean up... and now you are doubling my time for this most basic function??? I am soo annoyed right now.. and i've been a paid user for almost 10 years... seriously put the delete note icon back on the note! This is an unacceptable change!

    REQUEST – It would be amazing to have a feature where an image can be selected, and when you right-click (ie, the same way you rotate it, etc.) there could also be an option to override the "largest smallest-dimension" algorithm and set that image as the note's thumbnail. A little background –– One thing I use EN for very heavily is as an artist database for my job. I really like having both a photo of the artist and an example of their artwork at the top of their card. However, when I'm scrolling through snippet or card view, it would be really helpful to have the image of their artwork always be the one to show up. This usually happens but there are a few times where the photo of the artist is used instead. I've read up on the algorithm that chooses the image with the "largest smallest-dimension" (PS, see what I did there with the hyphen? Way clearer that way.) and I am actually OCD enough to try to amend the file sizes to have the algorithm pick the right one. However, even this doesn't seem to work – it's probably me because I guess an algorithm can't lie, but even when I resize the images, it's still not choosing the right one. So my question is – why would that be happening? Could it be that once EN's algorithm chooses an image, it always chooses that filename even when the size changes? But what would be SO MUCH EASIER is my *request* – could there be an override option to the largest smallest-dimension algorithm (which I agree does work at least half of the time for me) to choose a thumbnail? I'm not talking some fancy thing in the settings where you tell EN how to pick your thumbnails – that sounds like way more work than it's worth. I just imagine, like I've said above, having the image you want to be the thumbnail highlighted/selected, then right click (in the same way that you can rotate an image, etc.) and have something like "set as note thumbnail." Please?? Thank you!

    I use the top right-hand corner a lot to annotate various files... now it is a two-step process and the share button is huge. This is just making the workflow worse and I absolutely do not like this. I also don't understand the logic behind this. On the other hand, there should be a button that allows to share the note via email... right now, it is hidden and is a two step process...

    Thanks for the callout posting your script! I need to give it a try! In addition to the script, you can export the notebooks using these steps: Sign out: ( File > Sign out) Press the Ctrl+Shift+E keys while viewing the login screen Select the account username This will create a new folder on your Desktop that contains a separate .enex file for each notebook. When you need to import an .enex, select File > Import > Evernote Export Files. Each .enex will import as a separate notebook

    I loved Evernote back in the day, but the last couple years there were so many critical bugs in the Windows App version that it was almost unusable (really silly and fixable stuff like disappearing mouse cursors). It got so bad that I stopped my subscription. The recent updates have fixed almost all of the problems. THANK YOU. I re-started my subscription the moment I saw the problems were fixed. Thanks for keeping the Windows version up to date. This is such a power platform, and I'm very grateful that you're continuing to make it better. Thanks

    I think Evernote is a fantastic product, especially with the iPhone integration. I currently use a program called UltraRecall because of it's heavy use of subfolders. This makes organizing my data very logical. I was wondering if Evernotes has a way to create subnotebooks under existing notebooks to help group numerious notebooks together?

    Just to cycle back -- I've been quite busy at my work -- I'll give you props for this being more than I intuited. I've been through the layoff/spiral thing before, once where it wasn't fatal, the other where it eventually was. So hard to tell, really. It's be a shame if Evernote went under; despite all the glitches etc. (I've seen a lot of them, I'm a 10 year user) I've never seen another piece of software that matches my workflow -- such as it is -- as well, at least for what it does for me.

    Thanks for the reports. We have this issue documented; we're working on prioritizing the fix.

    Interesting thread. The last time I seriously considered jumping ship, maybe a year ago, I evaluated about 30 apps. At that time, the main problem, as it still is, was the lagging issue. Evernote can sit there in the background all day and do nothing, yet as soon as I click on it to search for or create a note, it says, "Hey, I need to do a bunch of stuff, right now. And this would also be the perfect time to sync, rather than when I was idle." The only serious contenders for me were Google Drive, OneNote and Nimbus. Nimbus had the most potential, but as some have said, it's a bit buggy too and moving from one buggy app to another doesn't look like a solution. I will keep an eye on it long term, however. As far as porting to something else, there are the importing tools of Nimbus and OneNote, and as DTLow said, export everything to HTML and go from there is a great solution. All of the import tools, are of the square peg in a round hole variety, so, while they are quick and easy, the results aren't desirable. Having said all that, I have been ready, willing and able to jump ship for a while. To that end, I keep current backups and am slowly creating parallel systems. One thing that has made that easier is getting away from the Everything in Evernote mentality. For years, all important emails have been forwarded to Evernote. Why? My email system is just as capable of organization, searching and cross-platform ability. So, I have been creating rules and filters in Gmail and stopped sending everything to Evernote. Note taking is still done in Evernote, but moving that to any other platform would be quick and easy. This leaves document storage. As much as I hate it, the best solution for me is OneDrive. For several reasons, I have an Office365 sub, which gives me a 1TB storage limit. My current storage after 10 years in Evernote is 5Gb. So I am slowly copying PDFs, etc. to OneDrive and creating systems in IFTTT to duplicate things going forward. I don't need OneNote to access any of these files, but if, at some point, I drop Evernote, I could pick up OneNote without a problem. It has some nice features once you learn the way it syncs, etc. And porting things slowly and methodically instead of some radical, I have to leave right now mentality, allows me to rethink and restructure the whole mess. With OneDrive, I can create the hierarchy that makes sense to me today, and if I go to OneNote, I can rebuild my tag structure rather than just porting everything over. As others have said, if Evernote shut down tomorrow, which most of us don't believe will happen, I have the desktop app and all my data, so I can take as much time as I want porting to another system. Which leaves me with the only problem I see with OneDrive, but one which has an easy solution. It's all in the cloud. I will have to create some system to replicate it locally, along with my external hard-drive and cloud backup systems. And when I say drop Evernote, I mean stop paying for it. Unless they go out of business or have a security problem, there would be no reason not to maintain the free version as a backup. I don't plan on ever moving everything in Evernote to another system, so having things where I can always find them makes it a no-brainer. Evernote works for me. I like it. I don't want to leave it and don't have to right now. But the management and direction of the company has been flaky for a long time now. I don't know if they can, or even want, to turn things around. But right now, I have until April to decide whether to pony up another fee.

    Hi, I'm usually very accepting of when applications update UI / UX. Things change and I get that not everyone will like it, however I'm hoping compromises and options can be made. I personally have issue with the redesigned tray icon. IMO, it's no longer easily identifiable given that most of the Windows native icons in the task bar are monochromatic as well. I'm constantly clicking on the icon throughout the day and now it just blends in with everything else making it much more difficult (for me anyway) to use. May we have different options for this icon? A green variant again? Maybe one with a green outline? Just something to provide additional options with more contrast that better stand out. Regards -

    Here's my daily journal template Template-Journal.enex The journal note is generated each morning via a script running on my Mac The script sets the title to the current date, creates a link in my calendar, ... An ifttt script sends me a weather report; I copy details into the journal note The date section is supposed to be a reference for alternate year systems, for example Chinese year of the dog. I substituted with year of me. A search generates my Current Task and Project lists I copy the links into the journal note The Activities section is a log of planned and actual I copy hard date entries from the calendar into this section I move hard date entries from the current task list into this section I add entries throughout the day. One or two lines, or a link to a separate note I append quick one-of pictures, but usually these will be in a separate note with a link in the Activities section

    Count me as someone who wants scheduled (vs automatic) syncing back. Sitting here trying to make bulk changes and I can't add tags to notes because it's taking forever to sync after I add each tag... so frustrating. evernote tag sync issue.mov

    Yes, but if creating a new reminder you have to go into the menu. One extra click so no big deal but I found it curious that the share feature was promoted. They did not do this in the latest Windows update. I'm hoping it will remain unchanged for the Windows client.

    I never understood the "war" between notebooks and tags. There are many different ways to use both of them, and every way that works for you is a good way. There is no "right" or "wrong" way, if someone tells you otherwise, they're just taking themselves way too seriously. 😜
