    Hi All, Today we’re following up Ian’s latest blog post with an update to our Behind the Scenes series where we go into greater detail about the work being done to move our rebuilt apps from Preview status to Beta release. We knew this video would be different—for one thing, we had to shoot and edit it from our homes as we continue to deal with COVID-19 pandemic. What we could not know was that in the days leading up to recording, long-simmering issues of systemic racism would come to the forefront of our social conscious, eclipsing even COVID-19 as matters of urgency and action. We chose to hold on to this video until we could publicly acknowledge the realities of the world around us. We're pleased to be able to share it with you now—it’s a valuable conversation if you want to know how we’re progressing with the new clients. And finally, one tidbit of good news: in the days since we recorded the video, our new iOS app has moved out of Preview and into Beta release. Enjoy! If you have any questions/feedback, please feel free to start a thread or reach out to me directly!

    You probably already know this, but while fonts can't be adjust yet in the Android app, it is possible to set the zoom (scale). It's in the Notes section of the Settings, and will apply to every note.

    @eric_treelight @annies If you go to access history (Evernote Web), you’ll probably see devices and IP address from a country different than you. These are hackers accessing your account. Once I changed my password to a strong, unique one and revoked access to ALL DEVICES simultaneously, I haven’t had weird devices locking me out. I know you’re extremely frustrated — I was — this should resolve the issue.

    Hi All, In the new Evernote Web, you can now use filters to help you find what you need faster. You can apply one or more filters by clicking the filters button at the top right of your “All Notes” list, in individual notebooks, and in search results (after executing a search). The following filters are available: Tags - Select from a list of tags in your account Contains - Select from a list of specific content types, such as images or PDFs Created - Select a specific date or date range when the note was created Updated - Select a specific date or date range when the note was most recently updated To remove filters from your note list, click Clear All in the upper right corner of the "Add Filters" box.

    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.

    I created a recipe template for my wife. Three things from that which I think are applicable to other use cases: The vertical wasted space of an ingredient per cell can be a PITA. With many ingredients sometimes two columns make sense and they may not have the same number of items/lines per column. You do lose horizontal space Then again a matter of taste, horses for courses.

    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.

    You can „print“ the pdf into a new pdf, selecting the pages you want, and put this pdf into a new or the original note. However you will sometimes loose some features of the original pdf by this, like OCR data.

    Hi, the reported error can be reproced with the following procedure: Create a new notebook called test. Wthin the notebook test, create two notes: note1 and afterwards note2. Order the notes by most recent, so note2 would stay on top. Make an internal link to note1. Create a new note in another folder, maybe called Evernote. Click on the link to note1. You will be redirected to note2 and NOT to note1. I contacted Evernote support and was told that this bug will be fixed in one of the upcoming web client updates

    My personal machine had a similar problem on installing the client but it did not have any issues running it once installed. It's just an installer problem. I'll look into it further. We did make some upgrades to the build servers so that's most likely what caused it. You are correct about the Note History issues. A server upgrade caused the HTTP Status text for 200, which is the "OK" staus, to stop returning the status text of "OK" like expected. This was causing a false positive error and was treating the 200 as a failure. Note History was the most obvious place this was seen but other internal HTTP calls were failing as well.

    Hi All, Thank you for reaching out! We have confirmed the issue you have described, and are working to get it fixed as soon as we are able. In the meantime, you can export the previous version from Evernote Web and then use the desktop app to import it. I hope this helps, and let me know if you have any questions!

    Evernote search is powerful. A common Search Operator is intitle: intitle:coffee searches for notes whose title contains "coffee". If you use Titles in a consistent meaningful way to easily categorize the entire Note, read on. For the over 5000 notes I have, I cannot search by (easily) by tag, though I use those heavily, as well as I can with intitle: Try it! If you believe it is valuable, then comment on my request if you have the time or interest.

    Has this been implemented yet and I just can't figure it out? Is it a feature in the premium version? It's so annoying that I can't choose the thumbnail for a particular note!

    With apologies to Evernote, I'd probably say 'Google Docs' off the bat. Sharing there is pretty transparent and updates are saved back to the server immediately. With Evernote you have the complication that if you edit a note, your changes will sync back to the server over the next several minutes (depending on how your account is set up) and if someone else changes that note in the meantime you could wind up with one set of changes being overwritten or both sets being saved as 'conflicting changes'. It's not usually much of a problem, but if you're dealing with others, it helps not to create any potential traps to fall into. Evernote has a connection with Google - How to attach Google Drive files to notes - so it should be fairly easy to create a note listing all the files for a project. If you copy the public share link for that page and send it to your contacts, they'll always have the most up to date list of files available to them. There's a slight security hole there - anyone with that URL can see the page. You may want to password-protect your files individually to avoid mischief. Evernote notes are not searchable by public search engines unless you actively promote them as such, so the note won't be found by casual searching, but the access is there for anyone with the URL. Hope that helps...

    Just my opinion, but an export to anything other than ENEX (which is already baked into Evernote) is hardly a 'backup' since it can't be imported back to replace the original note. It's just another copy of the database in another format. Your choice, but if the Apocalypse ever happens I'd bet there will be multiple options to export your database / import to another app at the time...

    Whatever you guys are doing to allow Grammarly to work in your product, please don't change it ever for any reason. It irritates me to no end that I can't use it in Google Docs and other things I like, and that's mainly why I'm here.

    I acknowledge that Evernote's user forum isn't designed to house discussions on racism and privilege, but I also can't be silent about something as important as this. In my opinion, it's lunacy in this day and age that every single company and person hasn't taken a stance against racism and white supremacy. What Ian did in this video is the bare minimum that anybody with a voice should be doing right now. Additionally, I am assuming that your intention behind "couldn't care less what colour or creed someone is" was well-meaning and designed to communicate that someone's race/ethnicity doesn't bother you. However, I want to share that these sentiments often contribute towards systemic racism or—in the very least—the privilege some groups have over others (even though that wasn't your intention, I assume). Not caring (or "not seeing") race/ethnicity is a way of dismissing part of someone's identity, suggesting their experiences aren't valued, refusing to acknowledge your own privilege, and often shutting down further conversations about racial injustice. In most parts of the world—and definitely in the United States, where Evernote is based—systematic racism is rampant; as a result, we must care if we want to move towards a more just and equitable society.

    Hi. Zero experience with Evernote Business here (he said happily) though I played with it for about a day before deciding that standard Premium did fine for me... but the Web Clipper isn't 'part' of Business, it's a stand-alone add-in to the browser that I have occasionally had to log out of and then back in again to get my clips going to the right account (I have a couple). Clipping an item shouldn't then mean that you'll open the app at that exact point - it just means the content has been saved to a designated notebook in a particular account. You have to navigate there independently to actually see the note. (Although there is a 'view note in Evernote' button when Clipper finished the clip, which usually opens the web version of the note, not the desktop application.) Additionally in Clipper Options, there's a choice to have the clipped note open automatically once the clip is complete. There's a lot to deal with if you're not familiar with the process - you might want to reach out to Evernote Support and share your issues with them... There is some help online too - Evernote Business Quick Start Guide / How to work with separate personal and business views

    Really good catch!!! Yeah, sounds like a bug to me as well. My expectation would be that when I click on a note link that context changes. I don't remember this behavior in the past, but who knows. IAC, workaround for me is to open the link in its own window if the base note is in a search result (Shift+LeftMouse). Or click on all notes and then the link.

    Hi, Yesterday late I received an email to inform me about a potential suspicious connection to my account. This morning I accessrd to my account, change my password, and had a look to the available connection history. And there I see an incredible number of connection from everywhere on earth to my account, and I have never been informed of any of them! Why didn't I received any information about that? How is it possible that there is no security surveillance at Evernote able to find out there is a security breach on an account when, and particularly these days, there are connections in the last 30 days to an account from France, ok, but also Korea, United States, Ireland, Russia, Tanzania and Iran! So I strongly suggest to set-up an access history consistency security check, should be not too complex to identify at least the big security issues like this one and act to secure back the account. Thanks

    It takes too many clicks to search a specific note: Search for the note of interest Double click the note to open it Edit Find Find within note (this finally displays the search input field) Type the word you are searching for Instead, could you make the search input field visible by default whenever a note is open? (alternatively, allow users to configure a preference to have the search input field visible by default). This would save many clicks for a function that is used quite often. Many notes are long and without search it's very difficult to find what we need. Thank you.

    Hi. You could make up your own format if you wish - Open Evernote on a desktop create your 'ideal' layout and save/ sync as a note. Export your note to ENEX and save it to your desktop Double-click the ENEX file Check the Evernote app for a new note with your saved format. Obviously not helpful for mobiles, but you can create a few spares on a desktop and keep them in a Templates notebook...

    I have been an EN user since Beta, and became a Premium user as soon as it was offered. I do not understand why EN is lagging with simple security options, such as easy encryption of notes and notebooks. This really should be as easy as a Right-Click or selection in properties for a Note or Notebook. The existing method of selecting text in a note and then using a Right-Click option to encrypt it is cumbersome at best. Yes, it is a nice feature if one wants to encrypt only a portion of a note. That's fine. But there should be an easy way to (1) encrypt an entire note without selecting text and (2) encrypt an entire notebook. I would be willing to pay a few bucks extra a year for this additional encryption ability. Seems this should be a no-brainier for EN, both as a tech matter and as a business/profit matter.

    I have the problem that the web clipper is removing indentation from code blocks, making the code unreadable. I have seen this on multiple websites, regardless of whether "full page" or "article" or "selection" is being clipped. For example, try this website: https://objectcomputing.com/resources/publications/sett/july-2019-web-dev-simplified-with-svelte It should look like this: But in Evernote, it ends up like this: I'm using Chrome and the Windows client.

    Hi Had the issue where the migration from Evernote to OneNote using the OneNote Importer lost some titles, seeming random. I looked at the XML in a text editor, and noticed that some XML tags on those with no title was different (missing some XML, which set the encoding, which I think is the issue). So, I did the following: 1) export from Evernote the notes you want to migrate (manually). 2) open the resulting .enex file in textedit 3) do a manual find/replace in textedit, replacing the seemingly "faulty" tag <![CDATA[<!DOCTYPE en-note SYSTEM "http://xml.evernote.com/pub/enml2.dtd"> with <![CDATA[<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?><!DOCTYPE en-note SYSTEM "http://xml.evernote.com/pub/enml2.dtd"><en-note>. 4) Save the file in textedit 4) Open the OneNote import tool. 5) Re-run the import with the OneNote import tool, selecting the newly saved file (with the find/replace carried out). Evernote team, this appears to be your (export) issue, not Microsoft's import issue.

    I would love (again) to be able to create a mindmap with my evernotes. This was possible before with moh.io, which is now dead. Thanks

    Dear responsible and fellows of the evernote community The only thing i miss in my daily routine - considering i use Evernote for literally my whole life -, is a mindmap creator resource. Beside the obvious missfortune of having to pay another tool just for making a few mindmaps, the real problem is that i can't change that mindmap once i've converted it into a PDF form0(in order to clip onto Evernote). So, i think it would be a huge improvement to Evernote to provide us a mindmap tool integrated with the regular notes, similar to the "tables" (or charts?) tool we have. If you guys agree please foment this thread! Thanks for your attention and my apologies for any language mistakes. With my best regards, Lucas Mello

    I would also just like to add here that a functionality similar to that of Google Docs would be great (see attached image). In that case, if you add a link (ctrl-k) you can just start typing and it searches other google drive documents as well as the web. This would be great for Evernote: search existing notes (based on titles and tags?) and the web. Of course, different users have different needs, but I think that the reactions here show that an improved implementation of linking notes in Evernote would be very welcome. The current method sooms to be too cumbersome for most users, and for me it distracts from my actual work while taking notes.

    Dear Devs in Evernote. Evernote is the best note taking app out there hands down. But for anybody working in development one big issue is missing markdown support. Nowadays Markdown is: a standard, a convenient, fast and reliable method to write tech docs That's why any developer I know, including myself, is using some additional Markdown editor trying desperately to fit it somehow into Evernote workflow. There is plethora of such tools: Atom iA Writer Bear Writer Byword Day One Markdown Pro Marxico Quiver Ulysses etc. Which means that there are libraries if not the whole ready to plug-in text editors supporting markdown. All the above applications are great for note taking in markdown, writing tech documents, essays or even books. However they don't integrate with Evernote at all (with exception of Atom and Marxico) and they all lack (to a different degree): powerful image support not to mention stellar Evernote OCR advanced Evernote search easiness of sharing notes in Evernote Evernote notebook feature Please put some pressure on the product managers to prioritize this feature. Integrate Markdown editor into Evernote to make great product even better.

    Hi. And congratulations - you made it past the Mod. As to the issue - Evernote has very.. basic.. table properties. (I believe the technical term -in the UK at least- is 'pants'.) It's easy though to copy and paste tables to and from software that does much better, like Word or Excel. Set your table properties, row heights and colours in another app, and copy the result back to Evernote. You can even attach the file you copied from into the note so editing and sorting in future is easy wherever you access the note.
