    Hello Everyone, Web pages can be complex, and pasting or clipping their contents into notes can have unexpected results. In this installment of Behind the Scenes, CEO Ian Small chats with Chris, an engineer at Evernote, about the work he and his team are doing to improve the way content is copied from the web into Evernote. Customers will soon have more control over how information is presented, giving them the flexibility to edit or preserve it as needed. Subscribe to our channel to follow the journey, and join the conversation on the Evernote Forum.

    It's hard to put into words so I've attached two screenshots with how a given clipped article would appear in full screen in both Evernote and Pocket for example. For me personally the second environment is much more distraction free and focused for both reading and editing. It's the small details like these that could improve the Evernote writing/editing experience for me. If you need further clarification, I would be happy to help.

    Being able to manipulate the content from the web clipper in different ways sounds interesting... One thing I would like to see is improvements in the formatting for the Simplified article option on the web clipper. Right now I don't think the experience is optimal. I think you can improve the formatting – read-later apps like Pocket do beautiful and simple formatting for clipped articles. I'd absolutely love it if we had the option to present clipped content in a beautiful, distraction free way like a read-later app (but still be able to edit it). I like to have consistency in the formatting of my clipped notes (rather than using the formatting from the original source). Of course I understand this is only my own preference and it would not be valid for the whole user base. But I think I speak for a lot of other users too who prefer a more simple formatting for all notes and focus on the content itself.

    Hi. Send a copy of the email to another address to which you have access. If you have two email addresses, set up a 'rule' on the receiving address to automatically forward your email to Evernote. Forwarded emails (as opposed to CC or BCC copies) do show more information

    I'm sure Evernote management are not happy their name is associated with offensive/pornographic material, but I'm not sure it's Evernote's business to monitor or censor content stored in our personal data. I flagged your post for the administrators to review. There may be a violation of the ToS or User Guidelines they can follow up on

    There is no secret shortcut to do this. It's an operation that makes no sense, UI-wise: break a line and put the text following the cursor above the preceding text? Nope. Instead, it sounds like a bug to me. Moreover, it doesn't seem to be what you're wishing for anyways: You can do this with lines in a bulleted or numbered list, in the current Windows client (which you're using). Hover over the bullet or number at the left, and you'll see the cursor turn into a hand. That means that you can drag it up and down the list, or into another list. Appears to only work with individual list items, but I haven't used this much, so there may be ways to make it work with multiple list items that I'm not aware of.

    @Kruger2147 Thanks for reaching out! Currently, we’re running some experiments via a preview program for Evernote Web, and enrollment in that preview program is now closed. Once we have completed those experiments and launch a public beta of Evernote Web, we will add Evernote Web to the Evernote Beta forum sections. In the meantime, please go here to enroll in our Evernote Beta Program if you're interested in trying out future betas. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Time for me to start a new "There are too many highlighter color choices, and it is confusing. Please limit highlighter colors to just yellow or I will abandon Evernote." thread!

    Thanks for reporting this! I was able to reproduce it and filed a ticket with engineering for a fix. To get around it for now, I would recommend to hightlight the text, right click on it (or ⌘K) and select Link > Add and paste the URL again. Thanks for reporting!

    I am having the same issue, the IdeaPlaces reply above does not seem to answer the question for me. I use notes to keep track of places to go like restaurants and hiking trails and desire to tap the address and send this to Apple Maps on phone to act as GPS to direct me there.

    I would like to be able to confirm the creation of a new tag from just typing into the tags area in a note (similar dialog to the confirmation for tag deletion). I am frequently having to go and delete a newly created tag where I've just typo'd an existing tag and hit enter as I add multiple tags to a note at speed. I have a fairly structured tagging system so adding new tags is a very infrequent occurrence compared to using them. I appreciate this may not be for everyone, so a setting to enable/disable the confirmation would be ideal.

    Hmmn. This conversation is a lot like the usual exchanges on word processing, mind maps and spreadsheets - Evernote is fine for very basic use in various areas, but adding menu options for the features of even one of those specialised applications would pretty much double Evernote's complexity, and make the learning curve even steeper. It is possible to set up a table in Evernote and do some very basic layout, but if I want to do even semi-serious spreadsheeting, I use Excel (and usually store the XLSX file in Evernote). Same for Word & DOCX, Freeplane & MM, Lightroom & NEF etc etc. Like @PinkElephant I would not use Evernote to catalogue pictures - Lightroom does.. everything.. you need and I already use it. (And it has an even steeper learning curve than Evernote!) But since I fell out with Microsoft* I've been trialling Linux, and Lightroom doesn't 'do' Linux. Which made me aware of a parallel world where clone-ish products are available for Windows and Linux at much less cost than Lightroom (which is rumoured to be going up this year). Various apps like Lightzone, Darktable, and Rawtherapee exist and I can convert to using some of those in both Windows (while I still have a device or two running that OS) and Linux (which I'm still cautiously feeling out). TL:DR - If you need a job doing, don't just reach for your favourite tool and try to find a way to use, or bend it if necessary, for that purpose. Do some due diligence and find out what software exists out there to deal with your needs. If the reviews mention your favourite tool, then fine: it's in contention. But if something else out there will do a better job, then the choice should be clear. *Long story - updates / security / cost / blue screens... <sigh>

    Evernote is great at many things, but it is a terrible solution for photo backups. This is not what this software was created for, and it will fight you tooth-and-nail the entire way. You won't be able to batch-edit photos, the 200MB note limit will cripple you, and quickly browsing through your photos will be agony. I'm pretty sure there's an old thread on here somewhere where EN staff outright discourage this practice, but I can't find it for the life of me. Use a tool that's meant for this type of backup. Google Photos, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox, etc. all support automatic photo backup services.

    From the outset, this series has been all about things they're grappling with, possible approaches to customer pain points, eliciting early feedback to possible solutions, and how they're thinking about solving them. They've never said that the stuff they're showing is generally available. No promises except that they're listening, and any changes will go through beta cycles before they deliver them. I've found some episodes of the series more interesting than others, but all well worth watching.

    I am experiencing the same kind of issues with links to gdrive files. When I create a link using the button to attach from Google Drive, it creates the link in nice little box showing the file name. Immediately, I click the new link to ensure it is working, and it does. But, when I switch away and come back, the link no longer works. I get a message "Sorry, unable to open the file at this time." (using Chrome browser) I have been conversing with Evernote support team for 8 days now, no solution yet. Work around is to get shareable link from gdrive, and paste it into note. You don't get the box, but the link does work. This does not fix older links made using the button to attach from Google Drive. Note that these issues are occurring on the Windows Evernote app. The links all work from my android devices.

    Can you unpack your suggestion here a bit more? This sounds like a feature request (see instructions below in my signature). But, I'd like to hear more about what exactly it is that Pocket/Instapaper or similar read-later apps are doing that "Simplified article" clipping format isn't doing for you? In the video, it looks as though the containerized Web clip can be morphed into simplified formatting that can be edited. Once edited, I think it would be difficult to revert that back to the original content without saving duplicate amounts of data (out of sight) within the note. Thanks; I'm curious about this as well as the note editor gets overhauled.

    I think the point is to edit the template in place as opposed to copy, edit, add, delete the old one.

    Please make sure to send feedback in the beta feedback app. This way Evernote knows about it and Apple makes it a priority to fix it, if it’s on their end.

    Hi, thanks for your reply. It was not a limit or syncing issue. I identified that it was the beta version which caused the issue. An update must have been made during the day somehow leading to lost data and other bugs after that time. I did not opt-in to use the beta version. Users should be notified through clear and formalised opt-in process if they wish to opt-in to testing, in particular obvious early stage beta, where bugs would lead to hours of lost work.

    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 forward a copy to EN of the sent mail. A bit of a pain but keeps the header information. I have a couple PhraseExpress hotkeys to clean up the forwarded email and in some cases add notebook and tags. FWIW.

    Let not concerns put a shadow on our mood. EN posted a new video today, which shows some stuff they are working on to improve the web client. It does not look as cutting back on features, all the opposite. For me it looks as if they really want to create a unified AND improved user experience. They showed features like nesting tags that are currently missing on the web client, and want to add these - not take them away from other clients. So do as Asterix the Gaul does: The only thing to fear is that the sky will fall on our heads. Don’t worry, be happy !

    At this writing, June 2019, this is possible with TaskClone and Zapier together. Soon, you'll be able to do this with TaskClone alone. Today, TaskClone converts your Evernote todos into email. Zapier can parse incoming email and create tasks in 000s of apps including Todo. TaskClone will be adding an API connection to all Microsoft apps (Todo, Planner, Outlook) in the near future.

    Hi, I would like to make a feature request. The default behavior of the web clipper is to create a new note with the selected content in a given notebook. A separate note for every little clip is not always necessary. So, why not include an option to append the clipped content to an existing note. It would be somewhat similar to merging 2 notes, only difference being, the process is now automatic and on-the-fly, instead of being manual. PS: Sorry for the poor English. Thanks, The-Droidster

    Hi guys, This is the developer of EverTool, an Evernote editor helper. In this post, I would demonstrate why I create this tool, how this tool can help you enhance the productivity, and present all the features you can use in this tool. Thanks for gazumped suggested to post it on this forum. As one of the Evernote user, I love Evernote and I think it is still the best note-taking tool. However, there are some features requested by lots of users, like Markdown, text style management, templates, etc.. As an engineer, I agree that the Evernote team has their roadmap to build and enhance this product. I think to build a successful product needs time and a thoughtful plan to make sure the new features fit most of the users. But like other users, I still hope I can use Markdown, code highlight, and other features to enhance my Evernote productivity. Therefore, I build EverTool, an Evernote editor helper. What is EverTool? EverTool is a kind of third-party app for Evernote. But it's not like other third-party apps. EverTool works independently from Evernote. Working independently means two things: EverTool will NEVER request the authorization from Evernote Keep the original usage behavior of Evernote Why do I think these two points are important? Many users use Evernote to manage their data. Especially for business users, they use Evernote to save secret data and communicate with team members. When we use Evernote, we trust Evernote, but do you trust other third party integration apps they can fully access your data? Another point is keeping original usage behavior. Evernote is an excellent tool. It already provides tons of useful features. Thus, when using EverTool, you don't need to change any usage of Evernote. EverTool is just a helper. You only use it when you need it. How EverTool works? It's super easy to use. Three steps make your note better: Cut the text → Click one of the actions in EverTool → Paste to Evernote Useful features In this section, I will introduce all the features of EverTool in version 0.3.0. Before we started, just keep in mind, the usage is the same: cut and paste. Text style management When creating a note, we usually use the same font style to present the same level. This feature will be handy when you want to reuse the text style. (It's similar to the styles pan of Microsoft Word). Demo: Transform Markdown This thread has great discussion about integrating Markdown in Evernote. Here I provide the EverTool solution. Demo: Resize images to the same width When we import lots of images to Evernote, Evernote will use the original image width to present on the note. If the image is too big, it will be full width. Think about if your note has many images and all of them present full width, your note will be very long and filled with images. This action can help you resize all images to the same width in one click. Demo: Highlight text We know Evernote only provide one highlight color. This action can let users define any highlight color. Tutorial: https://evertool.app/how-to-use/customized-highlight-color Transform Excel spreadsheets to Evernote native table Some users hope Evernote can provide the more powerful table, like primary math function. But in my opinion, Excel or Google spreadsheet already do a really good job. We can keep Evernote as a presentation place and do the complicated calculation on Excel. Therefore, what we need is transform the spreadsheets to Evernote table seamless. Demo: This action support Excel, Google spreadsheet, Mac Numbers and Evernote table. Therefore, you can also use it to beautify your Evernote table! The table style is also customizable. Url → Url + Title This feature is based on my personal usage scenario. I usually paste links in my note, but it is just url not the title. Of course, I can copy the title of the web page and alter the url name in the note, but it's too slow. Thus, this action makes you select all urls and transform them to urls with the title. Demo: Highlight code Dear engineers, it's time to write your technical notes on Evernote! EverTool supports 74 different highlight code themes. Engineers can write beautiful technical notes on Evernote. Demo: In short, EverTool is an independent tool provided several useful features. It's just a helper but it's powerful. All the features mentioned above are all customizable. You can define the font style, table style, highlight code as you want. Besides, it supports on both Mac and Windows platform. If you like this app, you can buy this app on Mac and Windows store to support me develop more useful features in the future. It's a one-time payment and you can enjoy all the follow-up update. Download link: Mac Store: https://lihi.cc/l9Twv Windows Store: https://lihi.cc/c1EEv EverTool is well documented. Know more on the homepage ?https://evertool.app/ Thanks for the reading. Should you have any suggestion, please don't hesitate to leave the comment. Hope EverTool becomes the wings of Evernote. Make Evernote fly farther and higher. Cheers!

    I totally agree with this topic. I just bought a Samsung S3 Tablet. I tried OneNote and Samsung Notes. Evernote product is much better in many aspects, but the handwriting support of evernote is really worse. The lack of support for pressure sensitive input from s-pen is disturbing. And the pen could have more lower thickness. I almost migrate to OneNote this year. Please improve handwriting support.

    I think it's obvious, at this point, that Evernote users want the ability to select the default thumbnail for notes. I agree that it seems ridiculous that this conversation started in 2013 and 4 years later this hasn't been added to the application. As a visual person, the thumbnail helps me quickly find what I'm looking for. For example, when I'm looking for a recipe for pancakes, an image of the video (pertaining to the recipe) of two cooks doesn't help me find what I'm looking for. I need to be able to select the pic of the stack of pancakes. The whole purpose for using Evernote is to be able to organize things so that they are easily found/accessed. I'm confused why this isn't already an option. This seems so simple to implement. Can we get some love on this issue?!

    I am pretty sure I brought this up in 2014, 2015, 2016, and here it is again. It's one of the main reasons I am constantly on the lookout for the 'better solution' of which there is none. I have tried DevonThink, Nimbus Note, OneNote, etc. They are each good at a couple of things but not as feature packed, or as 'clean' as Evernote. But if Nimbus can create repeat reminders, why can't Evernote? People have been clamoring for this feature for years. It's just the votes have been reset. The best workaround currently is using the Swipes service. It's free to use. It's available on the web, iOS, Mac, and Android. I am not sure if there is a Windows app. But essentially you tag a note "swipes" in Evernote, and Swipes will pick it up in their app as a task. You can then schedule the note with repeat functionality. Each "checkbox" in the Evernote becomes a subtask to the title of the note in Swipes. It works pretty well, and who knows, it may work better than Evernote's eventual solution.

    This is one of my top requests. I think you can determine which image is shown according to the vertical size of the image (& maybe the horizontal size plays in too but the vertical size seems most important). But I hate attaching a huge vertical image just to keep my cover image as the one I want. I wish I could simply designate the image I want used for the cover image. That would be really great. Thanks, Evernote. You're awesome.

    Hi All, I was going to open a feature request for this exact feature. I've been wanting this for a while and this feature will make my workflow so much smoother. No more scrolling up and down. When I start a new customer project, I create a note for it. Then I start adding sections to that one note separated by a horizontal bar and a title. A note can become pretty huge. It would be awesome if I can mark the title as a header and then at the top of the note automatically create a table of contents of that note. Just like in Word or Google Docs. Please add this feature. I've been paying for Evernote for years now and am a huge advocate at my work. Please listen to your customers. - Bobby

    Just a quick, small feature request. I'd like to have the ability to set up recurring reminders. I use Google Calendar for actual appointments, but I'd like to be reminded to read specific Evernote notes on a daily basis. I've got them listed in my shortcuts area, but there are other items there too, which complicate the daily review thing a bit. Dave
