    The new beta feature of a note-as-shortcut opening in a new window -- instead of populating the open tab -- can we disable that? It's absolutely not a workflow that works for me. I didn't see a preference for it though. If there is one, please let me know. Thank you!

    A hint. Stop creating something new every time and try to create stable versions. I write about Evernote here in Brazil and my readers complain about customer instability at all times. I may be wrong or right. But I still hope to see a stable customer. Let us turn our eyes to what is already good and work to resolve the errors before climbing a step. I do not speak with anger, I speak with heart. <3 Evernote.

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

    I don't like the shortcut/recent notes opening in a new window. I'd rather just edit them in the main window, as before.

    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

    Hi Karenjs, Thanks for the feedback and the broader community input. We are rolling back to the prior interaction, to be released at the end of next week, and are reevaluating how we can make the note interaction better for the future. -Jason

    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

    Hi, Agree. This does not work at all and you will get a lot of noise. Before the shortcut meny worked like convenient "bookmarks" in my large notebooks, where I could then navigate to neighbour notes, but suddenly I have to scroll though hundreds of notes manually. This is a mistake. Please revert to previous way. Sorry. You allready use double-click for opening notes in a separate window. You could use that instead. But single click should work like before.

    I love Evernote, but it's preventing me from putting in sensitive content. For example, I can't keep a personal journal notebook, because other people (i.e. girlfriend, family members, etc.) could one day be looking at those notes, especially since they know that I use Evernote often for many purposes. Evernote already has the ability to encrypt single notes. This is useful for things like storing passwords or other temporary sensitive content. But it's not practical to encrypt many notes one by one. I wish I could password-protect a whole notebook. This way, I can do a lot more with Evernote. If I can encrypt single notes, then why can't Evernote just allow me to encrypt entire notebooks? If reason behind this is because Evernote thinks one could lose a lot of data if a notebook password is forgotten, then perhaps Evernote can help recover the passwords through email. In the meantime, I'm stuck with using other apps (i.e. Pages, Day One, etc) to password-protect my content. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Quentier is a cross-platform (Linux/Windows/Mac) note taking app capable of working as Evernote client. It can also be used for local note taking, without the necessity to even have the Evernote account. Quentier supports such features as: Synchronization of user data (notebooks, notes, tags, saved searches) with Evernote Evernote search syntax can be used for data searching within the local storage Printing of notes and converting them to pdf files Ability to open several notes simultaneously in either tabbed or windowed interface Ability to switch between accounts - both local and Evernote ones Quentier is free software distributed under the terms of GNU GPLv3. A large part of core functionality was delegated to a separate library which is distributed under the terms of GNU LGPLv3. Note that the project is currently in public alpha state and is not yet intended for production usage! Some things might be unpolished while some other things might just randomly break due to some unforeseen circumstances. In order to make the app ready to fulfill the needs of casual users in near future the help of brave people prepared to meet and report bugs and inconveniences is required. So I'm seeking for volunteers willing to take part in testing, bug reporting, developing and co-maintaining this app (as well as its core library). The project has downloads with binaries for all supported platforms (AppImage for Linux) so you can take the binary and tinker with it for a bit. The user documentation is pretty much nonexistent at the moment but there's a brief overview of the app's features which should get you started. Quentier is written in C++/Qt, uses CMake build system, also uses some bits of SQLite, JavaScript and CSS. If you have development skills in these technologies and would like to dive into the project, there's an overview of the app's internals + the detailed guide to building and installing the app's dependencies as well as the guide on building the app's core library and the app itself. There are also some pre-filled issues (ditto for the core library) some of which are marked with "help wanted" and "good first issue" tags - these are intended for new developers coming to the project. In addition to help with testing and development I'd gladly accept and appreciate assistance from someone with good design skills: for one thing, better application icons are needed than what I was able to produce myself. For other things, the overall GUI appearance might need some improvements or their ideas at least. The project has a blog in which I write about various technical and non-technical stuff related to the project in one way or another.

    Out of the gate, the font of the Left Panel is too small. Yes, I can see more of it, but not at the expense of my eyes. If you are going to compress Left Panel at least give us the ability to select the font/size of the panel. Just my two cents.

    Hi @MarcusC, welcome to the Forums! You should be able to enable the Code Block feature in the application's Preferences: Open Evernote for Mac From the menu bar, select Evernote > Preferences > Software Update Check the "Enable Code Block" box EDIT: If you are using the version of Evernote downloaded from the Mac App Store, you will need to reinstall to the version of the application downloaded from our website to access the Software Update tab. I hope that helps!

    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?

    There was no beta for v7.0 but its a good idea to consider any .0 release as a beta. Issues don't usually get fixed until the later .n releases As to bugs fixed in v7.0; the release notes stated Improved & Fixed: • Fixed a syncing issue when renaming a notebook from the space view • Fixed a sync issue when editing a space • Made share status more accurate

    1000% This. Who in their right mind thought "Geez, you know what people in 2018 love, pop ups! If only we could add more annoyances to Evernote!" Seriously, how out of touch can a development team get? Worst of all, this was listed as a feature. Seriously... popups are a "feature"... that's just beyond the pale. You need to give us a way to disable this "feature" because now my favorites menu is literally useless, unless of course I want Evernote to eat up my entire desktop. Generally, anything that takes focus away from the window the user has clicked on is frustrating and poor design, but forcing new windows is amazingly, almost impressively, dumb. --- Edit: Apologies for the tone but this is beyond frustrating...

    After working with this version for a few days, I'm going to have to say it again - opening shortcuts or recent notes in a new window is a horrible change. I've never opened notes like this before, so why am I being forced to do it now? Please change this back to how it was before...as fast as possible.

    If I insert checkbox on Android, checkbox and one space is inserted. If I insert checkbox on Windows, checkbox and no spaces are inserted. This difference makes hard to edit one list on multiple devices. I suggest to: - don't insert space after checkbox on Android to match Windows style, - increase distance between checkbox and text (margin) on Android and on the Web to match Windows distance.

    I use Evernote extensively on my Mac, iPad Pro, and iPhone. We use shared notebooks in my office and I have a ScanSnap Evernote Edition sitting on my desk. (I even have Evernote desk accessories sitting next to the scanner.) I'm pretty well immersed in the world of Evernote. However, I've found myself turning to other tools, most recently OneNote, with greater frequency. The main issue, and it is a big one for me, is the fragmented and inferior support for note taking and PDF editing in Evernote. I use my iPad Pro with Apple Pencil extensively. There are some great Pencil-compatible apps for iOS, including Notability, PDF Expert, and OneNote. Evernote, on the other hand, is stuck with a strange and fragmented approach: PDFs can by opened using the "Annotate" tool in Evernote, which I think is built around the remnants of Skitch. It's fine for adding arrows and icons, but terrible (unusable) for handwritten notes on PDFs. It really can't be used for anything more than simple highlighting -- certainly not detailed annotation or note taking. Drawings and notes can be added to an Evernote Note directly through the handwriting tool, but this simply inserts an image into the note. There's no way to use this tool to take notes over multiple pages, or to use it for annotation as far as I can tell. I've also found it to the buggy, with full pages of notes lost if you switch away from Evernote to another app before saving the image and returning to the normal notes view. I will say that that, though the tool is very limited, with very few options, the Pencil support works well and writing is fluid. This tool seems to have the most potential for future development. Finally, there is Penultimate -- a separate app I want to love but is just too buggy, too limited, and too walled off from the rest of Evernote to be truly useful. Again, no support for importing PDFs/annotation, yet another approach to handwriting, and, though the Penultimate notes live in Evernote, nothing can be done with them in the main app. Why, at this stage, would Evernote have three separate, incompatible and incongruous approaches to annotation/note taking, none of which begin to match the functionality of some of the other apps named? Attached PDFs can certainly be opened in other apps, such as PDF Expert, but there is no way to get the annotated PDFs back into an Evernote note without deleting the original attachment and reattaching the PDF. That's cumbersome, and annotation seems like pretty basic functionality that Evernote should offer. Evernote certainly has some broader advantages over OneNote, but really needs to explore something like the "canvas" style approach used by OneNote. The ability to "print" PDFs to a OneNote page and then markup the document itself and take notes/add text/etc. all on one page is invaluable. I've pretty much switched all note taking/PDF annotation to OneNote, with Evernote still used for project management and other organizational needs, which leaves me with my own fragmentation. Maybe I'm missing something in Evernote's approach, but I'm a longtime user that's completely frustrated with Evernote's inferior support for annotation and handwritten notes.

    It's not you, they are different. Also, why am I unable to REMOVE/HIDE/MOVE the Recent Notes section? I never use it & it's kind of in the way where it's located now... Also, when you click on a recent Note it opens it in another window vs the reading pane. Totally inconsistent from the way every other note is viewed..,

    +1 To take a recent example, when a new general release broke Paste and Match Style, it was very annoying to see subsequent betas and general releases roll out new features (some of which were cosmetic and/or fringe) while the more core Paste and Match Style remained broken. I get that improved functionality and cosmetics are important, but the existing user base relies on the existing feature set, so when those things break, that should be a priority. It's a bit like Excel releasing a new version that contains calculation errors. And in the subsequent version, the calc error remains, but nevermind that, check out all these new fonts!

    Yeah, get how the development process works. Heck, I hardly ever have the left panel open, so not impactful to my use case. I guess It's about the optics for me. With some of the issues that have arrived with this beta stream it is surprising that this change gets second bullet in the list. No matter the effort required to make the change just seems to me a company would want to emphasize issue resolution as opposed to pretty. Optics.

    I'd have to look into how we set up sqlite options. And frankly, that's not something I want to disclose... because if it changes, someone will say "but you said!" Let's just say I'm fairly sure that it will write as needed (caching) - but syncing requires it to write so that's when the failure occurs.

    like to be able to have TABs in a single note when i create a note i have a single screen to enter data. lets say i am doing research for a new router. so i want to save the URL, some picture, some notes, some text from the web site, some contact data. what i would like is create the note change the default first tab to general info create a 2nd tab called ...screen shots create a 3rd tab called ....tech requirements etc. this way i can organize the content of the note and not just have all the data pasted into one box with no organization thanks

    Evernote you cannot be serious about this. This is now one and half months since this issue has been complained about here and in submitted tickets. The post above is your only remedy. Below is a fragment of a clipping from Android. You are not a serious company. It shows you have no control over what is going on with your code, programmers and team. The clipping has worked before, and you are not able to restore this functionality!!!!!!! You used to publish useless new versions or betas every week, and now you are not able to fix the clipping. If, like myself somebody submits a trouble tickets you are asking for data log files or screenshots to better understand the problems!!!! This is ridiculous, just take any android device and clip and all needed info will be there. Moreover, when I complained about your lack of actions and wrote how it really is in one of my previous post, you are threatening to ban me from the forum, only because I said about your company, what I and probably a lot of users think. I don't let you intimidate me, go ahead and ban me from the forum. It is fine. I'm sure this forum and you as a company will not be around much longer. One of the big ones was that Gmail itself would be adopting the Snooze feature made popular by the Inbox app. I stumbled onto a few strings related to snoozing in the last gmail update, but it wasn't enough to assume anything big was about to happen. But with the v8.1.28 update, there's a boatload of new text.

    The issue is that older version of Evernote worked perfectly fine until the update basically killed the clipping functionality. This should be a basic function. Not something Evernote looks to improve on. I wish I could be less harsh but you have got to listen to your customers.

    You can try right clicking on the note in the list and then click on Save Attachments. Sometimes the missing attachment will be saved and you can paste back into the note. I've done this with gone missing PDFs in the past...

    Actually, I was able to find a way to inject the favicon into the html and "trick" my browser into caching the favicon. <link rel="icon" href="https://www.evernote.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" /> This updated the forum home page (https://discussion.evernote.com) favicon. It did not update any other sub-pages without performing the manual injection on those specific pages. That, however, is of minimal concern because now my bookmark is showing the Evernote icon! Yay!

    Yeah, I'm aware of that. But the big green button takes up screen space and is I believe in the wrong place. It's also the brightest UI element in the whole app, it's completely out of place. I'm yet to see a reasonable justification for it being there - if the best answer is that it's there on other platforms...well that's more than a little pathetic.

    A few problems with this beta. I'm also seeing visual corruption in the Note List when entering Mission Control, when Evernote's window doesn't have focus. Now that both my account and a New Note button have to appear in the sidebar, I have to scroll to see the rest of my stuff. It'd be good to have the option to disable those, especially since I only have one account, and would rather keep the New Note button in the window's title bar. (It'd also be nice and consistent with the way you can show and hide other items from the sidebar.) This is a bit esoteric, but bear with me: For a long time, I've had a workflow where I'll open a bunch of notes in various windows and then use the "Merge All Windows" command from the Window menu to form a tabbed window of notes. However, as of this beta, notes which are opened in a new window by double-clicking the Note List, and notes which are opened by command-clicking a note link can't exist in the same window. I'm uploading a YouTube video to demonstrate what I mean. Also, some other problems that relate more to how note content is viewed on iOS. I have my default note font set to something other than the default on macOS, but iOS doesn't respect this setting. However, in bulleted lists that I've typed on the Mac, sometimes that font will appear on iOS — but inconsistently. I'd much rather iOS just respect the default that I set on the Mac.

    Hey All, We believe we've identified the cause of the 'Clip Failed' issue. We've submitted a hotfix, Version 7.16.1, to the Google Play Store and you should begin to see it available this week. Google does not make these updates immediately available to a 100% percent of users all at one time. Meaning, if you don't see it yet, you should see it available within the next few days. (I'd imagine that it should be available to 100% of users by no later than next week) Let me know if you have any other questions, or if you don't see it available by that time. Thanks!

    I have a few dozen Notebooks, each with a dozen or more notes. That results in a few hundred notes. Scrolling through these notes to find the one I want is slow and a waste of time and energy. Opening to the Notebook view would be much faster, and a more appropriate interface in my opinion. I already have a home screen folder with shortcuts to specific Notes, which is a huge timesaver. I'm not going to beat my head against the wall about this, but having the option to view Notebooks as the primary screen just seems like common sense. I guess that's why it's not an option.

    I'm so frustrated. These betas are a slap in the face to power users. I don't care, at all, about subtle fixes to a button. But I do care about drag-dropping PDFs and images, and I do care about a stable product. Please, you guys. I've been beta testing for years and years, and never have I been so frustrated. You are ruining this product with your misdirected focus. Fix. The. PDFs. And. Bugs.

    I would very much appreciate a word count when using Evernote on my iOS devices, please. Really, I would like that. Makes it quite difficult if you're writing for a purpose to not have a word count on the iOS versions. Is this being considered? If not why not?
