    I notice that the beta web client changed from 6.6 to 6.7 on Chrome. But unlike most betas I have used over the years, there is no announcement, no list of changes.. It seems like the web beta isn't really being treated like a real beta release. Users seem to have little insight into how things are going with the "new" Evernote, what features are there and what aren't.

    I've only played with it a short time, but using the web beta on my iPad - including a mouse! - works pretty well. The mouse (it works with a trackpad too) makes a big difference in editing text. Things like selecting text are much easier than using your fingers. I'm sure there will be gotchas, but at first glance it is pretty good.

    Yep, it's crucial to know what's new and therefore what should be (re)tested by beta users.

    Feature Request: Add Outlining Capabilities to Evernote Evernote is great, but it's dying for the ability to create Notes that contain Outlines which are easily collapsed and expanded during creation and in use. One way to implement it would be a switchable editing mode, between standard formatting or outline mode. In outline mode, pressing the Enter key creates a new outline item, and pressing the Tab key changes the current item into a sub-item. Clicking on an item's action icon causes its sub-items to collapse out of, or expand into view. That's the way the Ecco Pro PIM did it, and something simple like that would be a good start for Evernote. The name Evernote implies a product that takes notes -and collapsible/expandable outlines are a huge part of note taking.

    As long as Windows is the mess of an OS it ever was, and EN is still a 32bit-App, saying it would be easy to do is as popular as it is wrong.

    Fingers crossed for some behind the scenes updates about what this "maintenance" will allow Evernote to do. While waiting for web access to be restored, really hoping for: access to Reminders on the web interface easier selection of notebooks when moving a note on the web interface roll out of the new web editor to iOS and Mac! Keep up the great work Evernote... can't wait to have the same experience with the new common editor across apps.

    The current online version is the blueprint and testing ground for what the clients will look like. So this is exactly the Plan.

    It used to be very simple to drop-down the containing notebook and edit which notebook the note lives in. Now, the function has completed changed - it launches a search for all notes in that notebook. Why have this duplicity, when you can just access the notebook separately? It was more useful for me to be able to easily edit where a note "lives." Also, I notice that you've moved the note information (i) to a more obscure location. For a clipping tool, the source is relatively important, and shouldn't be demoted. There's not need to hide behind the three dots.

    A quick web search for tool to advise when a web page changes returns this 14 BEST tools for Website Change Detection & Monitoring (2020) and 5 Best Free Tools to Monitor Website Changes (2019). I did not dive any deeper. Maybe you could roll your own for this feature. Not to be a wet blanket, but doubtful this is going to find it onto EN's priority list. FWIW.

    It is the quickest way to create a note with URL meta info and note title automatically filled by EN + have the website link placed as note content, if you don't want to use an external extension like Evernote Web Clipper. Depending on, where you drop it, the linked website note also gets tags assigned automatically. E.g. you could have tag "todo" pre-selected in EN and drop a link right into this note list, which appends "todo" as a tag.

    Hi... Tried EN many moons ago, then went with OneNote but EN's cloud and accessible anywhere features are bringing me back...Enough kudos... Is there a way to mark a note as "read-only" so I cannot accidentally erase or modify it? Thanks. Alex

    I am not here to discuss why or why not one should move from Evernote to another application or service. That is such a personal decision, and I am sure everyone has personally valid motives. Myself, after careful consideration, I decided to move to OneNote. And moving from Evernote to OneNote should be straightforward enough - after all, Microsoft offers a tool (OneNote Importer) just for this purpose. On the other hand, many users (including yours truly) have encountered a number of problems: notes without a title or (oh the horror) notes without actual body. Oh, and keep in mind that I am not overly concerned with a bit of formatting issues. In any case, a glitch here and there is probably to be expected. If you have a relatively small number of notebooks and notes it is not particularly onerous to manually adjust (copy & paste) even a couple of dozen notes. But if you happen to have an Evernote database with several thousand notes… or few tens of thousand notes… the percentage of import errors increases exponentially. To the point where you may be tempted to give up, or where manual intervention is simply unfeasible. I know I was in that situation. Then, because I am a (rather aging ) software developer by trade, I figured I should try and understand the problem (or problems). It turns out I was too fast in blaming the Microsoft product for the poor import. So here is a simple recipe to insure that conversion problems are kept at the very minimum. I just finished porting over 31,000 notes and, at my last count, I have 41 notes that I have to manually fix. And I can live with that. Preparation Before you install and run the OneNote importer, export your Evernote database to ENEX files. Do NOT export the entire database in one pass. Export each and every single notebook. This may be a pain - especially if you have a large number of notebooks. Still. If you do not have a good text editor capable of handling large files (I assume some of your notebooks may produce large export files) get one and install it - there are several excellent freeware and/or opensource offerings (I happened to have become accustomed to Visual Studio Code) If you do not have a super-simple XML editor, get one and install it. Believe it not, my tool of choice is the ancient workhorse Microsoft XML Notepad (1998 - yes 1998). I am not sure you'll be able to find it for download… but you will definitely find XML Notepad 2007 (still available on Microsoft site) . Editing Session Using XML Notepad, open (or attempt to open) the ENEX file(s) you created when exporting your notebook(s) Many files will open without problem. But that does not necessarily mean that they will import without problems. Some files will report errors and you will not be able to open them. See Figure 1. In this particular case, the XML generated by Evernote breaks the entire file because of a non-breaking space in the title of the note. Who knows, I may have copied that title from a web page or from an email signature. Interestingly enough, the OneNote importer is often able to CORRECT the error and import the note correctly. In few cases, for rather mysterious reasons, the note will not import at all. Or it will import without a title. I could not detect a pattern. I will spare you the gruesome details of the investigation, and come to the important point: it turns out that the structure of the XML data in the ENEX files does not always and/or necessarily abide to the "declarations" found in the "document type definition" specified in the file's header. If you have no idea of what I am talking about, it does not matter. Just use the following nuclear option: The solution is surprisingly simple: open the ENEX file in your text editor Look at the second line - you should see the following: <!DOCTYPE en-export SYSTEM "http://xml.evernote.com/pub/evernote-export2.dtd"> See Figure 2. DELETE this line. Don't even ask. Save the file Importing Fire up OneNote Importer When you get to the page "Select Evernote Content", click on the link "Import a file instead" - See Figure 3 Select one of your datafiles, click Next and let the OneNote Importer do its job. No, it is NOT a fast import operation. In closing: if you are moving to OneNote, for any reason, experiment with one notebook - before embarking in the full conversion. See the difference between a straightforward import with OneNote importer and one done after the editing I attempted to describe. I hope this helps a bit... Figure 1 Figure 2 Figure 3

    Problem solved, I had a lot of duplicated notes in my trash. That was the reason that my limit was my limit was immediatley used up at the start of the next month period. I now emptied the trash and all new notes were synchronized then.

    So it seems it may be a Firefox deal. My understanding is that FF has gotten really tight about security lately. How to see how this could be a security problem, but they may see security issues where no one else does.

    As far as I know, 5.29.0 is the "broadly available" web beta version. The 6.x versions are (currently) more limited tests. Apparently, you've been quietly placed in a v6.6 test, but only for Chrome, not for Firefox. At some point 6.x will become the "broadly available" version. Hopefully soon, because I'm still on 5.29 myself and would like to see some new features.

    The first one you may have previously said GOAWAY! ("Don't show again") I know the first time I install on a new machine and exit, I always click that! I think the 2nd only comes up sometimes (I don't remember the conditions). But you do need to have sync-changes-on-exit enabled (in options).

    The "Insert Line" bug has been fixed. Yay!!! Still having issues with the "Note Upload Failed" bug. I've created a new note (on my Windows desktop) with copy & paste (not the Duplicate Note option) and then tried deleting the note off my phone, multiple syncs on all my systems using Evernote. Still there. Will have to go back and review the suggested procedure which involves deleting cache, uninstalling Evernote, and then re-installing. Took 2 days to restore all my offline notes the last time I did this, but hey! looks like I'm not going anywhere for at least 2 weeks. Stay safe! Isolate, and stop hoarding the toilet paper! .

    IMsHO (only semi-humble), if a missing icon is the reason you quit using Evernote, you made the right decision, since you must not have been getting much value from it (even for free) if that was the tipping point. Semi-seriously musing: What is this mysterious hold that Evernote has over people, that they abandon it, find something else that works much better, and still come in here a year later to b, um, to p, um to complain about it? I am actually curious about what drew you back, and sorry for any evident snark.

    Yesterday, I was going to update Evernote to the latest revision but it complained that it was unable to load the database. I logged out, renamed the database directory, upgraded and after logging back in, a new database was created, synced and all notes were visible again. So it appears like my database was corrupted and that caused the bugs I originally reported.

    Yeah this might be the final straw with me for Evernote. I like a lot of thing and have tried so hard to stick with it so I can keep existing sorting , but this is driving me nuts. I want to be able to continue reading something where I left off. That’s not a huge request 😕

    If you right click on one of the icons in the tool bar you get a context menu and you can check/uncheck Show labels which should do the trick.

    Following up on this, I did send another email to support, replying to my existing ticket from last summer. This is their reply, which seems reasonable to me (given the exasperating randomness of the problem), although it doesn't offer any immediate solution: "Soon" is a subjective term, but from what I've seen of the "Behind the scenes" videos and the Web beta, there are some great changes coming up, and it could well be that this "incomprehensible" issue (incomprehensible to all concerned, apparently) will simply get resolved in the general code revision.

    If this is for your business, then IMO you would be better off using a CRM system (app or web) than with Evernote. A decent (and inexpensive) CRM system will make it easy and effective for you to track and develop leads and customers. You will quickly find Evernote to be a PITA for this use case, and this comes from a big-time fan/user of Evernote. It's all about picking the best tool for the job. One lead developed, or not lost, will quickly pay for a good CRM system.

    I own a marketing and branding firm that also operates a well-known blog for marketing students and business owners. The tools I use include a Lenovo ThinkPad, an iMac, an HTC EVO 3D, and an iPad. Our blogging software is all in the cloud. But on weekends, I travel to a city without any Internet access. I just wanted to say how important Evernote is to our blogging operation. I use the offline features of Evernote, thankfully available on all of my devices, to type up blog posts. Once I get back to a data connection, I sync all the posts and paste them into our blogging interface. The Notes feature on the iPad pales in comparison and I would be wasting all my time copying and pasting from that if it wasn't for Evernote.

    Problem solved. There was a conflict with the AMD Radeon video driver software that comes per-installed with the video driver. After reassigning the couple of keys in the software, I also discovered the conflict with the key that control code block, everything is back to normal as far as Evernote is concerned. I might discover that I created the conflict somewhere else. Oh, well.

    It's not actually a flower, although it's certainly not a cleanly designed icon. It's a picture of a desktop in-box (complete with the finger notch used to dig out papers when the in-box is full to the brim), and an arrow pointing down into it, confusingly and pointlessly surrounded by a rectangle with three rounded corners and one non-rounded one. But what it's trying to convey is: "In the absence of any other instruction from you, this notebook is where I'm putting stuff." So, yes, it's the marker of the default notebook.

    You have the note guid - 7B44ADE5-65F7-4148-9E74-2D261CBF8F7B and can convert this to an in-app note link The format for an in-app note link, is evernote:///view/nnnnnnn/snn/guid/guid/ Just copy the nnnnnn snn from an existing note link; it's unique for each user

    This sounds like the issue in which wrongdoers have stolen passwords from other sites (not Evernote), and then applied them to Evernote until they find ones that work, so that you have an unknown device logged in to your account. Best practice, I believe, is to immediately change your Evernote password to something unique and strong (https://www.evernote.com/secure/SecuritySettings.action), and then go to your account page and delete the intruding device.

    A thing that's been bothering me in this great service ever since I started using it 2 years ago, is that it is not possible to set a sorting order for a specific notebook. To me this seems very basic, so I was very disappointed that it's still not available in the new beta. I mean, am I the only one who wants my receipts ordered by date and my recipes ordered by title? My family photos ordered by date and my art photos ordered by title? I do sincerely hope this can be implemented!! Once again, thanks for the great software.

    Hi All, This is one of our most frequently asked questions and previous posts contained a lot of outdated information so I wanted to provide a refreshed answer. If you're trying to undo an action/typo you can 'undo' by doing the following: EN-Windows: Ctrl + Z EN-Mac: Command + Z EN- iOS: Shake device to receive 'Undo' prompt EN-Android: Tap 'Back' (curved arrow) button from the menu bar above the note EN-Web Client: Ctrl+Z if using Windows, Command+Z if using Mac If you're trying to recover a deleted note, check the Evernote Trash and restore it. If you're trying to recover a previous version of a note, check the 'Note History'

    What Ezio.arsh reports is the problem under discussion in this thread (into which someone merged his report in a separate thread, and my reply to him--this post, which I'm editing for its new context). The notes are absolutely Evernote notes, not from another app. There is something screwy in the Android Evernote app which they've been looking into since last summer. The solution that @Ralph77 suggested above worked for me: clearing both cache and data for the app. This does require a complete new download of note data, and recreating the settings. But it gets rid of the locking of notes.

    Hello. I'm a premium Evernote user. One of my main uses of Evernote is to make lists of websites or articles I find useful in a single note as multi level bulleted lists and linking them to their URL so it's easily clickable. This is very easy to do in the Desktop and Web app using the Ctrl+K shortcut or the Add Link button. But the Android app doesn't have an option to add hyperlink to a word or a sentence. This is a very basic function and should have been easy to implement even on Android. I'm posting this forum post from my phone and even this text box has a link option but the Evernote app doesn't! I would request the Android developer team to consider it. A simple button beside the Bold, Italic buttons at the bottom to add a hyperlink would be very useful. Thanks.

    I have also found this a problem (and have reported it via the web editor feedback button). Here is my experience: It happens when I use the web client. (I've not experienced it on the Windows client.) It happens in Firefox and Chrome, both on Windows 10. It happens on different Windows 10 machines. I have only noticed it since the Beta Editor was introduced. But... It happens on both the Beta Editor and the Classic Editor. Here is what happens: I am typing in the middle of a text note (in Beta or Classic editor of the web client). At some random point the following things happen in quick succession: The last few keystrokes are suddenly undone. If I was typing this means the last few characters disappear from the note. If I just pasted a bit of text that might disappear. The cursor jumps to the start of the note. The screen does not move to the top of the note until I type the next characters. Note that those things happen in quick succession. So - if I am typing without pausing - it looks like the cursor has just jumped to the top of the screen in the middle of typing. But on closer inspection - when I scroll back down to where I was typing originally - I also find the few characters before what's at the top of the screen have disappeared. For example, if I type "Once upon a time" at the bottom of the document and 1, 2, and 3 happen just after I type "upon a" then I will see " time" at the top of the screen, scroll back to the bottom, and see just "Once up". A slightly different effect happens if I am typing and the bug occurs a moment after I pause to think. In this case, steps 1 and 2 have happened, but 3 has not yet happened because I've not typed anything more. In this case the effect is that I will see my typed text, I will see the last few keystrokes mysteriously undone before my eyes(!), and the blinking cursor after that text will have disappeared. Scrolling to the top of the note I will see the cursor blinking away there. Yes, this is very annoying, and yes, it does make it near-impossible to work in the web editor.

    Happy to see another video released and happy to see real functionality demonstrated. The Evernote team had seemed to go "dark" for a couple of months since the last video, and I was starting to get a little concerned that perhaps they had hit some major snags (or worse). The last time EN went dark for a few months there was a management and strategic shake-up... Could we get an update on the beta program(s)? Many users on these forums and on Reddit indicate they have signed up for the Beta for multiple platforms and not heard anything from EN. I count myself among that population. May indicated that these changes will be rolled out soon to a small population who are testing the new web experience and that the apps would get it "in time." That's all fine and good, but can we get an update on the beta testing for the apps? Are any of those in preview mode yet, and if not yet, could we get an indication of when? Are we talking most likely not until 2020? Thanks and keep up the good work.

    I am a paid user and have many Notebooks. I have notebooks that relate to my hobbies as well as my career. On laptops that I bring to work, I only want my business-related notebooks to replicate. After installing Evernote on a new computer, is there a way to tell it what notebooks I would want on that computer? Thanks!
