    Hey gang - There is some useful feedback in this thread which I have read with interest. Thank you! There are also a lot of concerns raised, whether it be feedback to the specific content we showed, or all sorts of interpolations and extrapolations built off what we showed (and in some cases, what we didn't). I don't have time to respond to every possible angle raised in this thread, but here are a few quick responses: 1. Roughly 12% of Evernote usage is on web sessions. 2. No one ever said anything about making Evernote a web-only experience. Just because we demo a set of improvements to search on web (which is the least adequate search experience, btw) doesn't mean this is the only thing we are working on. In a series of videos that may well have a lot of episodes by the time we're done (depending on the response we get, I guess), we judged it to be a reasonably approachable initial subject for a first video. Why? It's relatively easy to understand. It's visual. 3. Following up on #2 above, we are NOT planning on eliminating Windows and Mac versions of Evernote with local stores, nor Android and iOS versions with local stores, etc. Being able to use Evernote whether online or offline is a major feature/benefit and in a million years that's not going away. Of course, having a local store would be even better if sync was fully robust. Working on that. 4. Having the kind of interactive search capability we outline here doesn't mean we're taking away your power search capabilities. It means we're trying to find ways to (a) more quickly get to the content you're looking for *without* needing to know quite as much of the search instruction arcana (b) give more people more powerful search tools (c) get there in fewer keystrokes. I'm sure we'll get some things wrong along the way, but we're trying to have our cake (improved UX, improved relevancy, more interactive search tools) and eat it too (powerful command line syntax) on this front. 5. As I said in the first video in this series, some of what we choose to show in this series won't relate to a problem you in particular are facing. Hopefully some of it will. I recognize it's frustrating if the first video we drop doesn't relate to your top pain point, but you can rest assured that there are others amongst our millions of users who do. Otherwise we wouldn't be working on it. We can only do one topic at a time. 6. One of the reasons we prototype a lot of new stuff on the web first is because it's absolutely the fastest way for us to design/test/validate/deploy something new to a limited set of customers in order to get a feedback loop going about a particular design direction. As I said in the very first video, we are trying to test - with users, live in the wild - as much of what we are working on as we can prior to release. If seeing what we're working on in a web setting disturbs you simply because we are showing a concept in a web build, I'm guessing that for your own peace of mind, you should probably stop watching much of the Behind the Scenes series of videos. 7. If you *do* get invited to participate in a Preview release of some kind, as part of that we will point out to you that Preview is definitionally pre-Alpha. Which means more than "it's buggy". It means it's not even close to feature complete. It's not performant. It's so early there isn't a proper name for it. But if there's enough in there for us to get directional feedback early in the process, we will do our best to put it in front of some users, live and in the wild. Because the earlier we get feedback, the better chance we have of being ultimately on target. All we will ask of you is not to pre-judge the eventual release of something by its Preview release, a release that may come months before we lock down direction, functionality or performance. Previews usually come along with non-disclosure requests, too, because they're so early. Which is one reason you (appropriately) don't hear a lot about them. I'll return to lurking now (and get back to my day job, which ultimately is where I have the best chance of generating value for you all). Thanks for watching, and for caring. I recognize that the last part - that you care - comes through in every comment. ian

    .. here are my thoughts/experiences. My first note was made 10 years ago June 2009. I've used it entirely for all my personal stuff - travel, finances, kids report cards, music, web clips and on and off I've used it for work stuff - reference materials, meeting notes and even GTD. However, with all the talk and rumors about EN sustainability, I decided to try out alternatives. Here's what I found. 1. Bear. I am an amateur musician (not a very good one). In music a common notation for a sharp is a #. Bear treats this as a tag. So storing your music in bear is a non-starter. You could use other symbols, but why? Also Bear is another company, with a subscription plan that's just younger than EN. Why should Bear last any more than EN? 2. Apple Notes. Pretty good and free. But web clipping is non existent. Scanning is hard. Sync can be slow over icloud. You can't tag easily. Search is limited. 3. Notebooks.app. I really thought this one might be good. Idea is you store your notes in dropbox and then Notebooks creates a little file with meta data (tag, due date etc) for the note. Your notes are in a native format - rtf , pdf, html etc so no proprietary system. People seem to rave about it and it has nice IOS apps. But - no web clipper. There's a script you can use, but it's not great. And the big issue - I imported 1000 notes from EN and while it worked OK ish on the mac, my ipad froze. Suggestion from the developer was - don't put all your notes in one folder. Not helpful. Oh and sync is very very slow because you're layering the app's work on top of dropbox's sync. 4. Devonthink. DT is great if you are writing your manifesto/dissertation/research project and you've got 100s of reference docs (pdfs, clips, notes). DT has OCR and advanced AI to search and find links in all these files. But if you just want to organize some travel details, it is complete overkill. Plus, it's clunky and the learning curve is awful. It's expensive, but there are no ongoing fees. DT is a research grade program. 5. Google Keep. Is a bit of a joke really. 6. Notion. If you like spending a lot of time arranging things on a desktop then it's great. But it's still a proprietary system (unlike notebooks and devonthink where your content is stored in open files). And again - how do you know Notion will be around tomorrow. 7. OneNote. On the Mac it is pretty bad. They finally added search for to-dos, but you can't really create tags. On windows it's pretty good. Exporting from Onenote is not good. For example pdfs get exported as multi page image files. So I am 100% back to evernote. It has issues, sure, it's not perfect, but it's a lot better (at least for me) than the alternatives. Here are a few of my most fave things about Evernote. 1. Drag a note onto another note to create an instant link in that note. This is so awesome - I create master reference notes super easily. 2. You can search for unchecked to-dos. 3. You can save searches. 4. It is fast. 5. Even though your data is in evernote format, my experience has been that if you want to extract it to other programs, you always can. You have an exit strategy. Sure it costs. But I pay for Dropbox, I pay for Lightroom, I don't mind paying for Evernote. If you think you can get a good robust app for no-money then you are kidding yourself. Anyhow, just my 2 cents.

    Hi everyone - Dropping back out of lurking mode to provide some additional insight and to reflect on some of the threads above…. There is lots of valuable feedback in this discussion - thank you! I’m sorry if we have disappointed some of you with a perceived lack of responsiveness in the comment threads on these videos. As you would probably expect, our top priority is listening for input and watching for new insights that emerge from these forums and also from all the other community and social mechanisms through which these videos are distributed. During initial design, we focus on talking to and learning from individual users. When we move into preview releases, we engage one-on-one with tens and hundreds of users. As we ramp tests to thousands, tens of thousands and ultimately into millions of users, we start looking increasingly to quantitative data to inform how successful we are being because the conversation doesn't scale otherwise. That’s just the simple mechanics of how things need to work at the scale of Evernote. Concretely, the new note editor has been out in preview release with select Evernote web users for the last 75 days, ramping from a few hundred users trialing very early builds to now thousands of users kicking the tires in a larger-scale (but still early) beta. In the private discussion attached to that original preview program, the conversation around some of the same topics raised here has been intense, resulting not just in bug fixes but also in changes in design and implementation that we are still continuing to work on as I type this. Understandably, we have focussed our energy on going back and forth with and supporting users who are evaluating this build for us in the wild. (Some of you on this discussion are also involved in the private preview program discussion; thank you for your feedback and contributions there!) This is not to say that we don’t value your responses to these videos. As I said above, we read every one to look for new insights and observations. In general, I think that the early response to the first few Behind the Scenes videos has proven that our decision to start communicating with the community through this video mechanism has been a good one. However, I recognize that as we increase this style of communication out to you, it naturally bumps up your expectation of our ability to be able to engage both interactively and on a lot of fronts at the same time. We’ll do our best to engage as we are able, but our priorities internally are clear: First and foremost, we need to focus on shipping quality software that delivers the more coherent and consistent Evernote experience that I blogged about earlier this year. We are still relatively early in that process; we have a long way to go. When we are able to engage, we try to prioritize interactions that inform us of how to refine the software in flight, or to identify and eliminate bugs. That means we won’t necessarily be able to circle around to catch everyone up across all the different communication channels and all the threads. Apologies. And finally, I want to get us out of the habit of making promises we don’t meet. I am not a fan of making commitments we're not 100% sure we can deliver on. So unfortunately that means most of your questions about additional feature X, anticipated delivery date Y, and what about Z - no matter how reasonable! - are likely going to go unanswered until we can back up an answer with facts, or better yet, software. I truly appreciate your ongoing patience with us while we focus as much energy as we are able to muster on building a better Evernote for you. We are trying to test everything we are doing early and often. And we continue to listen to the feedback from those tests and to evolve in response to that feedback. Finally, for those of you who have stuck with this post this far… we know tags are super important to a significant percentage of our user base. (As an aside, we’re trying to improve support for them on Evernote implementations where tags are currently and inexplicably somewhat second-class citizens.). Tags in the modern Evernote web environment aren’t hidden behind a click. They have always been shown at the bottom of the note editor screen (a particularly observant s2sailor noticed this in the video - full points!), which is different than where they are on the Windows build or on the Mac build. There are advantages to this, and as has been observed in this thread, there are also clearly some disadvantages as well. This continues to be a source of ongoing discussion internally. Going back to lurking now. And probably shooting another video in my copious spare time... ian

    This is exactly why companies hate sharing information. They put together a nice short video about how they are building a new feature. Somehow that then develops into Group Fear that something awful is going to happen. Before you know it, The Verge will have 500 words and a clickbait headline about it.

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

    I really will go back to lurking soon, but while we're at it... To your (1), I will observe that one of the things we showed in the video was the ability for to type the first few letters of a tag or a notebook, have that tag or notebook be automatically suggested, and add it as a filter (eg. "Mexico" was a tag). I understand that incremental search may not be up your alley, but I suspect that for most users, auto-matching what you are typing to possible tag names, notebook names, space names, recent searches, etc. is faster, more interactive, and likely more effective than needing to type or pick "tag:" or "notebook:" first, followed by auto-matching and picking. Our goal is to design for the breadth of the constituency (both paying and non-paying, although we pay the most attention to paying users and those who are likely to become paying users). I completely understand your mileage on a given design approach may vary. To your (2), obviously this is a super power user capability. We have been looking at various options around what the default search logic is, and we have contemplated what full boolean logic would take. One of the things you'll find about me is that I don't make promises that I don't know that I'm going to deliver on. In this area, while we have been and are looking at it, no promises at this point. Thanks for investing the time to respond. -- ian

    Hi All, An app is only as good as the infrastructure it’s built upon. And we’re doing our best to make sure Evernote’s foundation remains solid. In this installment of Evernote Behind the Scenes, CEO Ian Small chats with Ankur, a senior engineer at Evernote, about the work he and his team are doing to manage the vast network of servers underpinning Evernote. By improving how data is stored and retrieved, they’re ensuring a more stable and reliable service for everyone!

    I think Ian's trying to strike a balance between providing details of our work and not going above the heads of our non-technical users. I was personally impressed with their ability in this specific video to explain in layman's terms the issues we're trying to address. Overall, we're taking a system that has scaling issues and making it more robust. We're moving from a monolithic/sharded architecture to a microservice design to allow for scaling individual pieces of the system and getting rid of all single points of failure. For syncing, there's definitely work being done there to make it much more reliable and real-time.

    @JMichaelTX As of this moment, Evernote has its fair share of experienced engineers along with more junior engineers. For the multiple re-architecture initiatives that are currently in process, we have experienced engineers actively leading and contributing to these projects. We also have a team of the more senior/experienced engineers in the company that meet to review and discuss any new architecture projects. This has really helped to work through potential problems with designs or technologies earlier in the process.

    Hi All, I do my best to limit any censoring of content, but unfortunately, this thread seems to have run off the rails from it's original topic quite a bit. In this case, I'm going to lock the thread. I'll leave it open to still be viewed as I am sure there is some good, relevant information here. I'm not going to point any fingers, but please refrain from taking a thread off-topic, and keep any personal discussions in the direct messages. I'd prefer to not have to take any restrictive actions. Feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any other questions!

    Hi all, We were recently advised by LinkedIn that they are making changes to their infrastructure. Unfortunately, this means that after June 30, 2019, third-party apps like Evernote and Scannable will no longer have any access to LinkedIn data. What does this mean? Any LinkedIn profile information you’ve already added to a note will remain. But you won’t be able to see a LinkedIn user’s details, or connect with them, when you scan a new business card in Evernote. You’ll also lose the ability to add content from your own LinkedIn profile to your Evernote account, or see LinkedIn information using our Context feature. What will happen? Within the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out updates for iOS and Android that will remove the LinkedIn connection. You don’t need to take any specific action other than keeping your app up to date. Mac and Windows updates should be available by mid-July. If you haven’t updated your mobile app by June 30 (or if you’re using a desktop app) you’ll still see the option to connect to LinkedIn when you scan a business card, but nothing will happen. Despite these changes, we want to be clear about one thing: business card scanning is not going away. You’ll still be able to: Take a picture of a business card and save it in Evernote Add the person to contacts on your mobile device Email your own info to the person Find the business card later using Evernote’s text recognition feature The LinkedIn integration was an awesome feature and we’re sorry to see it go. But we’re still committed to helping you work smarter and keep your life organized. If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to me directly!

    @Ian Small, I completely agree with the comment about Tags. I need for the Tags of the Note being edited to always show as part of the header being displayed for the Note. I, and many others I think, are very tag-centric, and it would be a real PITA if I had to click on something else just to view the tags for the Note. Thanks again.

    Exaggeration, obviously. And yet you still don't get it. Well, carry on, O Crusader for Truth, Justice, and Windmill-tilting. Just trying to guide you into more fruitful endeavors (you'll note that I haven't taken any positions here on the tags/folders "debate"). But no... Anyhow, obligatory (some more irony food for you): Adios!

    Hey Folks, I am Jesse Lesperance and am the Head of Security at Evernote. Jumping in with a couple of observations: Here’s another piece of coverage [https://www.cyberscoop.com/evernote-patches-flaw-google-chrome-extension/] with more accurate and specific information. The original Guardio press release is here:https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/guardio-discovers-major-vulnerability-in-evernotes-chrome- extension-300866322.html As mentioned in the CyberScoop coverage above, Guardio does not believe that anyone took advantage of the bug. At Evernote, we have not found any evidence that the vulnerability reported by Guardio has been exploited.. We have a robust security program which includes working with many external security researchers; when we or a third-party discover vulnerabilities, we have a formal triage process that ensures that we appropriately prioritize and resolve/mitigate the vulnerability. In this case, due to the potential impact, we had patched the vulnerability and distributed a new release within 3 days of Guardio’s contacting us. Chrome Extensions are by default set to auto-upgrade precisely for these sorts of situations; consequently our patch was automatically applied to the vast majority of installed Chrome WebClippers. If you are a user of the WebClipper Extension for Google Chrome, and you have changed the defaults on how your Chrome Extensions upgrade, you should ensure that you have v7.11.1 (or better) of the Chrome WebClipper Extension installed.

    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 hate this burger, I really hate it, but I quite like the sauce that comes with it. Some other people like the burger and sauce so they keep ordering it. Some other people don't like the burger and/or the sauce so they stop ordering it. I'm going to keep torturing myself by ordering something I hate and then complain about it. Maybe I should just find a burger and sauce that I do like and that will make me happy?

    The database is not affected by the enex splitting so Acronis will work fine. Enex files are now split when exporting when they reach a certain size. This is to help with export files being so large that they can not be properly imported due to memory restrictions. By default the enex files are split around 2 GB. When the export dialog pops up, it will give an estimated size of the exported data in the title bar. The estimate is for the raw data size and the final size will be slightly larger due to the enex file format.

    Unfortunately, based on our current architecture and database design, it's NOT an easy change. It comes down to entity relationships (parent-child). Adding multiple levels of notebook nesting in the current architecture is just not doable. We've made certain consolations like Stacks or Spaces (for business customers), but these are basically giving you one additional level via a new entity type (vs. entities being able to relate to entities of the same type). We're currently actively rearchitecting a lot of the system. Changes in the system should allow for more flexibility in the future around entity relationships. I can't speak to any specific initiatives to allow for multiple levels of notebooks, but it should theoretically become easier in the future once we've completed our current work.

    Why are there always a few people who feel compelled to tell us what to do? No one here is driving off a cliff, but some of us do have some valid concerns we want to express. If Evernote did not want feedback, then they would not have posted the video in this forum.

    Speaking as a part-time Linux user, I'm very happy that Evernote are looking at improvements to the web client. Until there's a native Linux alternative, that's the only way I get access to my account on one laptop. And the Forum is full of complaints about the web client missing desktop features, so I can see where the Herd is going with this. In other news Evernote have managed, alongside this web project, to bring out new Windows, Mac, Android and iOS updates. I don't think they're concentrating exclusively on the web. Relax people - lets just see where Evernote goes next!

    I too find the focus on the web version scary. Right now what I find most useful in Evernote compared to other notes offering is : extremely fast -- I can scroll through *all my notes* with virtually no lag on my mac, there are > 2500 notes. an informative overview layout -- in the Expanded Card View all my notes appear as thumbnails of what's inside, including images/PDFs and file icons for all the rest. In fullscreen I can show a 11 x 6 grid of notes = 66 notes. This is very helpful when trying to understand what is where. The current evernote web shows ~11 notes at a time, with no thumbnail. I can put any kind of file in an evernote note, even when evernote does not understand the file format (e.g. netCDF files). Evernote will not complain I can open several notes at the same time in their own window from the main evernote window, for instance to access multiple reference notes at the same time. This is hard to do from web-based solutions like Notion or the evernote web version Anything that quicklook understands is previewed in an evernote note, including powerpoints, keynotes, excel files. Unless I'm mistaken, all of these advantages are lost when switching to the current web-based solution.

    Hey folks, We've received some reports of users logging into the new Evernote Web and noticing their accounts are not displaying some notes and notebooks, even though these notes exist in their accounts and display in other devices. This is a known problem that we're addressing. If you run into this there are two solutions to resolve it: The simple solution is to log out of Evernote and log back in using a supported browser such as Google Chrome, Opera or Safari if you're on a Mac. If this doesn't resolve the problem for you, open the JavaScript console in your browser, type Cupboard.clear() and press Enter. After this refresh the browser page. We apologize for the inconvenience, but know that we're aware of it and working on a few things that will ultimately address this. Thanks,

    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.

    Well, for the last 5 days I'm testing the process to import the Evernote notes into Microsoft OneNote. For those that are interested in discover the process, I will list the positive and negative points, that I discovered among this time: Pros: The OneNote importer works only with the Evernote Win32 version: the Metro version is not supported. In case of Metro Version is not available you can export the notes and import them, as the same Way. Notes format are almost the same as Evernote Original Cons: OneNote Sync Mechanism are VERY slow compared to Evernote: even with an fast and reliable internet connection the sync process to just one Notebook could take a lot of time to sync to the device. Sometimes OneNote just stop to try sync the note and you'll need to start over again, sometimes 2, 3 times depending on the Notebook size There is no oficial tool that allow you to export notes from OneNote There is no tag system like Evernote: Tags are on very preliminar version You can't sort notes inside the notebook like you do in Evernote: you can just drag them to the position that you want to. If you use an outdated OneNote version, you can install a third-party tool that make this, but these outdated versions will not receive any improvement from Microsoft since they are treated as "depreciated" products. Mobile OneNote version has the same poor sync speed. So, I'm keeping the Evernote and not shifting anymore to OneNote, so, my hope is in Evernote 7.0 version

    One other thing: I love the fact that the old checkbox feature will be left intact for those of us who are used to it. I like the idea of checklists -- and I may use them -- but I also like Evernote's commitment to adding options rather than subtracting them. 😊

    Love the video series and I'm getting increasingly hopeful that Evernote is heading in the right direction. I do want to add a +1 to showing tags by default somewhere in the vicinity of the notebook. It will be a big loss if they are not visible by default.

    Wow! This is terrific! You guys are doing a great job. 👍 And Sasha did a great job of presenting and explaining the new editor. I really like everything you are doing to the new editor. This time, I do NOT have any complaints/issues. 😉 Thanks again for sharing as you develop.

    I have stopped submitting support requests. I get the equivalent of "is your PC plugged in" canned responses that clearly indicate one of a few things: AI is answering it based on keywords in my request Someone is scanning it quickly for keywords and pasting a canned reply. They have zero actual knowledge of Evernote and their reply makes absolutely no sense in the context of the support request. That is a true shame for a paid customer too.

    These are the hated bugs - random. Very hard to repro and fix. Sigh. An alternate to rebooting: Open Task Manager and kill the running Evernote processes. You can leave EvernoteClipper.exe - that's not what prevents EN from starting again. It's the Evernote.exe, EvernoteSubprocess.exe, and EvernoteTray.exe processes. When the main Evernote.exe crashed, it died in such a way that the other processes didn't catch that and proceed to act very badly.

    That's exactly what I don't understand. If an app does not do what I need it to do, and developers have made it clear that this will not change in the future, I'll go and use a different app. Not complain about it for a decade. It's not like there are no apps out there that do it exactly the way you want. Repeating the same thing over and over again won't get you anywhere - EN is not a democracy, it's a privately owned company, and that means the software will be developed as the owners decide.

    Ian, thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. This was very helpful. Thanks for stating this so clearly. I think it will alleviate a lot of our concerns. I am definitely all for that, as long as the incremental search can be turned off in Evernote Preferences. Since you are highlighting Search here, let me make two suggestions: Auto-Complete Search Qualifiers and Corresponding Data I think this directly speaks to your goal stated in (a) While I'm not a fan of incremental search, I am a huge fan of auto-complete, if done well As I type, perhaps there can be a keystroke (like TAB or SHIFT-SPACE) that would give us a drop-down list of Search qualifiers, like "tag:, notebook, title, date, etc) Then if the user chooses one of these, like "tag", you would shown a dropdown list of Tags like you do in the Tag Filter. As I type, it filters/selects from the Tag list Same for "notebook" and "date" Full Boolean Search We have been asking for this for many years. Since the underlying database is a SQLite database, I would hope this would be a relatively minor task to implement IAC, this would be huge! It would allow us to greatly and easily narrow down the result list of Notes. With a smart auto-complete, almost any user could easily use this. Thanks again for all that you have shared, and plan to share, and thanks for considering my request.

    Wow! FIrst the video series and now a thoughtful response on this forum. After a rock-bottom low last year, my faith and confidence in Evernote is now at an all-time high. Ian-- so far, you are truly doing a great job as the leader of this company. Thank you.

    I did a quick test and when I changed the created date on a duplicated note it did move in the sort sequence. Check Tools - Options - Search and see if Search when note is updated is unchecked. Check the box if you want to update the view without a sync.
