    I regret to have downloaded the new version of evernote, as now my notebooks are all organized in a list. This does not give a good overview - one has to scroll down + it is an extremely boring layout. The old book form (the little squares) where better in both aspects (going from left to right, it was possible to see many more notebooks on the screen.) My request is to allow users to choose for themselves if they want list or books (just add an icon next to "your list" => sort by => books (instead of only number of notes, etc., names etc.) , and why in addition (later, after this has been solved) do not also work on a version that allow users to add other distinguishing features, depending on their own preferences (shapes, colors,)

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

    Just adding my $.02 that this is a horrible change to the interface to make poor accommodation for a single feature.

    This lack of grid view has completely thrown off the way I interact with Evernote. Please bring back, I am a paid user, and I make no threats of leaving as Evernote is my life, I am trying to just appeal to your desire to provide the product your customers need. Thanks.

    Sorry to be harsh but Evernote Jesus Christ can you please fix copy-paste once and for all? It's incredibly buggy and inconsistent. Simple: Paste (control-V) should paste the formatted content of the clipboard, including font type, size, color, attributes (underline/bold/italics) and links; Paste-text-only (control-shift-V) should paste text only and adopt the "local" formatting at the point of paste (including font type, size, color etc.). Really, not complicated. It's ridiculous that you can't get that right. Every single user of Evernote I speak with agrees. It it weren't so frustrating it'd be funny. Version 6.7 actually made it WORSE. Can this be finally fixed in 6.8? PLEASE? Can't be that hard. Really.

    The Web Client was last updated more than a year ago. There were rumors that Evernote is working on a new client but it seems to me, nobody cares any more. I am still using it on a daily basis under Linux and I am still hating the work I need at home on my Mac to cope with the shortcomings of the interface and to turn my note into useable ones. Evernote please at least let us know whether there will be a new client for the Web which is more useful. While the number of my notes grows the risk of the need to switch to a different system is getting higher every day.

    After upgrading from 6.4 to 6.6, all my notes now have wide margins on both sides. I cannot find any setting to adjust this. Top and bottom margins are ok. This issue is related to viewing notes..NOT printing.

    This is not "feature creep", a fun term to toss around, but not all that meaningful (much like the overused "feature bloat"). This is not Unix-based "tie a bunch of separate command-line tools together to build synergy" development. It's development of a general purpose integrated, distributed note keeping application. Table support was extremely rudimentary at the start, and Evernote users have been asking for improved table support for a long time; there's obvious demand for that. Some people use tables a lot, and they're useful in note templates; I use them daily in my Evernote workflow for work, less so for my personal workflow. Your mileage obviously varies. And that's the problem / blessing with general purpose applications (think MS Word, for example): everyone uses the core 10-30%, but out beyond that, different people use different parts of the program a lot, and others, very little. If you don't add or improve some features, then you don't attract new users, because you don't solve their problems. But they haven't overdone it either (though there have been some missteps, e.g. WorkChat). In my view, Evernote has actually tended to maintain a pretty good focus on keeping actual extraneous features out of their application (I think that their strategy is generally to promote integration into other, more specialized, applications via their API; I can't speak to how well that's worked out. Aside from a brief flirtation with IFTTT and Zapier, I just use Evernote straight up). They haven't tried to become a serious todo list application, calendaring program, mind-mapper, Slack competitor, etc. etc.. It's still pretty minimal overall, a good general purpose note keeping program, and one that I use daily at work and at home, and has been for over 8 years in my case. Note that I am not suggesting that they ignore this, by the way. There's obviously a fair amount of dissatisfaction with the situation. But calling useful, user-requested improvements to Evernote "feature creep" is misunderstanding the term, and how software is reasonably developed. It's not all about you, or about me, for that matter. The core features remain; reasonable improvements in usability and functionality over time are expected.

    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

    I find it unacceptable and disappointing as well, but not surprising. Payed user for years, BTW. Evernote development and management team persists its their inexplicable decisions. I'm still using v6.5.4 version since it works. It has few bugs, not nothing that would prevent me from working. After I tried the new releases, it reformatted my notes and was just too dangerous to use. Too many bugs. Things that used to work, don't anymore and things that should work, act buggy and feel unpolished. Typical evernote. So I'm reading posts such as yours and I really can't believe that people after so many releases and beta updates and bug reports still report the same things since v6.6. Jeez. Wake up Evernote team or hire someone new to fix this. Please.

    Not at all a dumb comment, but honestly I have no clue what simplify formatting does. 9/10 times when I use it, it doesn't simplify enough, so I cut the text to the clipboard and roundtrip it through Notepad. I rarely use Remove Formatting because that converts the entire note, not just your selection, to plain text. Great for a new clipping, but not much else.

    Please introduce different colors highlight! In previous versions of the software - before the highlight button was inserted - I was able to highlight in different colors by using Mac's text contextual menu. Now it's impossible... Please introduce this option, its helpfulness is crucial! Thanks, dario

    Hello Everyone, There's been several reports coming in today about not being able to sign in to the Evernote Web Clipper (primarily on Safari). I'm going to merge/link the threads I find into this one so everyone can keep updated. At this point in time, our development team is aware of this issue, and investigating a fix. We believe this occurred after our web release yesterday evening. As a workaround while we work to correct this issue: For Safari: Log in to the Web Clipper by signing into Evernote Web at https://www.evernote.com/Login.action and check ‘Remember me for 30 days’ when logging on. For all other browsers: Log in to the Clipper normally, but select the ‘Remember me for 30 days’ option when signing in. There is not a need to open a new chat or support ticket unless the above workaround does not work for you. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we work through this on the backend. EDIT: Please see update below!

    I really can't understand why they have made that unnecessary margin over there. There was no margin, I remember, but now it occupies the place too much! Unless there is a margin, I could see and read a few more words! On PC, the users who have to deal with a small monitor feel really inconvenient. Is there any way to go back to the past for it?

    Hi. The bad news is that this is a default chosen by Evernote - double-click opens a slideshow mode so you can scroll through all the pictures in your note. There isn't a user-definable option. The good news is that if you right-click the image and choose 'Open', it will open in the default app set for that file type. You (should) get a Windows pop-up with a list of installed apps, the normal app choice highlighted, and an option to set another app as the default if you wish. A keypress opens the application and the image. If you're doing a lot of processing, a text expander like Phrase Express would allow you to assign a keyboard shortcut to do the same thing. http://www.phraseexpress.com/

    Buddha says "Meditate first, then post." Really. I'm seeing this working, in simple cases at least. There may be edge cases where it fails. That's where we can help them pin things down, by specifying scenarios where it fails. I'm testing in the 6.8.1 beta, btw. Ditto for this, except that links are maintained. Remember, they don't call it Paste-text-only; they call it "Paste and Match Style". Both have their uses, in my world, and having ways to do both would be nice. I think there's also a use case for Paste-in-Default-Format. I'd use it, anyways. This is probably related to the Clear Formatting operation (which maintains links currently), and Remove Formatting (which seems to not be working at all, so maybe a regression there; I'll need to pull this out and report it separately), but should probably remove links as well. I would use both of these operations. Except that HTML formatting is complicated. I'm guessing that that's one of the major difficulties.. I'm also wondering about the keep/remove link issue. Also I'd say that there might be some disagreement as to what the fundamental operations should do. Anyways, to summarize the set of operations that I'd like to see: Possible paste operations: Simple: paste and retain any current formatting of the pasted text. Keep links as links. Paste-and-Match-Style: pasted text takes on the formatting that's active at the point of insertion. Keep links as links. Paste-and-Match-Style-No-Links (I'd guess that this is equivalent to what people call Paste-Text-Only): pasted text takes on the formatting that's active at the point of insertion. Remove links. Paste-In-Default-Style: pasted text takes on the current default style as defined in Tools / Options / Note / Note font and size. Keep links. Possible formatting operations: These operate on selected text in a note, or the whole note if there's no selection: Clear-formatting : convert formatting to default style, but maintain links as links Remove-Formatting : clear formatting to default style, but remove links Remove-Links : maintain current formatting, but remove links I haven't gotten into the shortcut key issue (without using Alt-, and think that they avoid that, you'd need more than Ctrl+V and Ctrl+Shift+V), but all of these options ought to be at least available on the right-click context menu.

    This change really sucks for visual thinkers who see things in 2 or 3 dimensions! The old Notebook icon layout allowed me to find things by their location and not necessarily by the title. It gave me a quick visual overview of all my notebooks in just a few scrolls. Now, I am forced to think of the title first in order to find it. I then have to scroll endlessly (which is terribly distracting when you have something on your mind that you want to get down). Most times I have to scroll back up since I missed what I was looking for. The old Notebook icon was more efficient since it's layout was not only up and down but also left to right. This shortens considerably the time it takes to find a Notebook. Now I have to rethink the titles of some notebooks in order to better organize some frequently used Notebooks to the TOP (the TOP now being significantly less!). I had to get use to this change on the iPad (which I hated and still do) but my use of the iPad is different since I use it to find notes more than compose notes, therefore, the distraction of endless scrolling was less of an issue. I use Evernote on my Mac to compose notes where I am thinking, researching and problem solving. The scrolling on the Mac version becomes a detriment to fluid thinking. This change has really affected how I "see" my Notebooks and most likely it will affect my productivity immensely. Like White said above, let your users choose!!!

    [Cross posted from Help Forum] I want to echo the sentiment in this post. I initially thought this was a new "default" setting not a removal of a feature. This is a very poor user experience move. Had you warned me that you would be removing what was a key branding element of this product, I would not have upgraded. As it stands, I will reconsider other options for me and my team. May I recommend that in the future, you perform beta testing / customer validation of such a major change before you launch.

    When I joined Evernote customer club many years ago, it was unique and innovative. And during these years you managed to maintain highest level of user satisfaction. So what's wrong now? Why to remove the tool, actively used by many - smart and rational? Obviously, keeping Atlas doesn't involve too additional level of effort. Fellow Evernote users, I urge you to support this actively, as Evernote got big enough to listen to few users opinion.

    Well, sometimes clipper doesn't grab what I want or grabs too much so I Ctrl-A/Ctrl-C or drag/copy. Then I may want to paste it all or just the text with the links for future reference or just the text. And I'd just as soon do the copy and a single paste action. My use case anyway. Simplified article is in the neighborhood for text with links, except you always get the "whole" article, some of the images, and some of the formatting. So more editing than I care to do. Can work with 2 out of 3, but all three would be special.

    For EN Win v6.8, we will be reverting Ctrl-Shift-V (Paste & Match Style) to the way it was in prior to the EN Win v6.6 release. I.e., only the text will be pasted in - links, images, attachments, etc., will be stripped out. That is the behavior that users have come to expect, based on their experience with Evernote over the years, as well as with many other apps and web browsers. Based on user feedback, we will consider other improvements to paste in future releases.

    No one is suggesting you fix 100% of the bugs, that isn't possible. Neither is anyone suggesting you cease new development. Evernote though seems to be on the opposite extreme of that - headlong into new features at high speed that are buggy, and at best not well implemented, and at worst not well though out as far as what the repercussions are. Paste Matching Style is a train wreck and no one likes it, the new tables look good, but introduce unbearably fat margins, aren't reliable in how they work and are inconsistent. The spell checking of contractions hasn't worked in 2 years. And those are just my short list. What I said was 90 days. 90 days. Ninety. Days. Just fix bugs. Quit working on new stuff and tighten up what you have.

    And the font resize issue is still there on 6.7.5. I can not, for the life of me, understand that a product whose whole functionality revolves around text, has a bug like this that persists through multiple releases. Imagine if Microsoft Word started automatically changing font size as you type. The "it works on my machine" excuse will only work for a short while, and it's starting to get frustrating.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmC3keR5wok

    Goodness gracious me. Thank-you everyone for all your comments and updates; particularly @Dave-in-Decatur for your welcome and helping explain the issue in far better terms than I could have done. I'm slightly embarrassed but very glad to say that I've updated my version of Evernote to 6.7.5 and, as has been mentioned, the problem has been resolved. That's extremely helpful - again, thank-you all very much.

    @DTLow, I don't know if you intend to be this way, but you continually come across as excusing and apologizing for the very poor testing and QA by Evernote. Why don't you give it a rest, and let Evernote defend their own software, their own decisions to release. It is NOT our job to risk our critical daily workflows by testing beta software. I think it is a fair expectation of Evernote for their entire team to produce software that is reasonably free of material bugs. I'm not asking for "bug-free" software -- we all know that is near impossible. But it is also clear that Evernote could and should produce software that has many less bugs than they do. They should especially fix all of the obvious bugs that most of us see as soon as we run the app. ATTN: @Evernote ( @Chantal Leonard, @Johnathan Hebert, @Jason Miller ) Why this continual rush-to-release, especially when you know there are serious bugs in the release??? EN Mac 6.11.1 seems reasonably stable, with very few, if any, material bugs. Why don't you guys just stick with that version until you can properly design and test the next version? As far as I'm concerned, every 6.12 version has been way premature, still in early beta condition, that no one should risk their critical workflows with. If you guys would figure out a way for us end-users to install a Beta version while keeping and not impacting our current production version, I would be glad to test it. Or, if you want to pay us for beta testing, I would install a virtual machine to test the Betas. But I also expect you to do you part first.

    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.

    I’ve been out off Windows for a long time but there used to be a concept of a batch file. You use notepad to create the file; 200 enscript lines if you like I found this reference that’s more step by step https://fossbytes.com/what-is-a-batch-file-in-windows-how-to-create-a-batch-file/

    Please please please return to the stack view for Notebooks. I VERY much dislike the current list view. Why not offer a choice? I'm really concerned about the developer sensibility - this feels / seems like we're chumps who simply must take whatever we're given rather than have users' wishes taken into consideration. Sigh.

    I agree with some previous posters -- Bring back the Notebook grid view! Part of the beauty and usefulness is to see all my notebooks at once. Sure, there's a keyboard shortcut to go directly to a notebook if I remember that it exists, and what the name is. Seeing them all at once means I don't have to trust my memory for that. That's why I use Evernote in the first place! Meanwhile, I'll follow the instructions to downgrade. Thanks for making them available.

    Is it just me, or did the margins in the notes increase in 6.6? Seems like a lot of wasted space in the left edge of the notes field, which means I can see less of a note's content at a glance without opening up the note into its own window.

    Why not using Evernote's "saved searches"-rules instead of "auto tagging"-rules ? IMHO the only difference is that the "saved searches" are JIT-rules, applied Just-In-Time when you need it, not when you store it. Additionally, saved searches are much more flexible: you can easily change/extend the rule without the need to correct it in all your erroneously tagged notes by the Auto-tagging.

    Open one of the new notes, size it like you want it to be. Then File - Exit out of EN, this should remember the setting. Start EN and see if it worked. If you don't want to open the note in a new window, go to Tools - Options - Note and uncheck Create new note in a new window.
