    Shortest response to all speculation above: we have been investing for the last several months in replacing the plumbing in client apps, including in the modern web experience. When we are done (we aren't, yet) this will mean a common codebase shared across all the clients for cloud-client functionality such as sync, which should help us both isolate and stamp out bugs as well as driving more consistent behaviour across any user's Evernote experience that spans multiple devices. None of the previews put out to date incorporate any of this work, which is foundational to implementing the local data store for desktop and mobile clients that we all know and love. We plan to shoot a Behind the Scenes video that talks about the new plumbing, but the architect we need for that is ... ahem ... busy right now, or else you would have seen it before this one! Side by side installations on desktop machines of the beta and of a current production release will have distinct local data stores; you will be able to use both at the same time (I do that, right now).

    Thx @gazumped - tried those as well. The saved search nor the tagging didn't work quite for me. However, I actually figured following solution for me: Created "Current Items" notebook In there created separate notes eg. "Working items", "Hobby items" etc. Each note (= category) then consists of titles which are actually Evernote internal links. Ta-daa! I can even then have separate titles for those (compared to as the saved note-title in Evernote). Suits perfect for now!

    Hi Evernote, Please fix the formatting on the bullet points. They've been broken since I started using Evernote and it is the single most significant reason I don't use Evernote more often. I actually would stop using it, but I need something with the searchability and offline mode for my comprehensive exams. My most recent problem: - I was trying the new editor and changed the font of one of my notes. - A new line was added in between every single one of my bullet points that I then had to delete manually - I then decided I didn't like the new editor because support for combining Unicode characters I need was limited and the UI was not easy to transition to immediately. - I went back to the old editor and found my note using a font I didn't like and that looks nothing like the font I chose in the new editor. I selected all and switched to a different font. - Every. Single. Bullet. Indentation. Disappeared. I just lost about an hour's worth of work just to reformat a note that I shouldn't need to revisit when I don't have the time to be dealing with this nonsense. This is not acceptable. Other problems I've had: - Bullet points are constantly disappearing when I try to reformat the indentation in the middle of what has previously been written. - Copy-pasting to other platforms isn't reliable because Evernote's formatting code is so unreliable that the other platforms produce complete nonsense with respect to the indentation. Unrelated problems I've had: - Why do I have to submit a bug report on a forum that is—I don't care what is "officially" promised—only moderately monitored at best? It's completely inconsiderate of the user base you have that you can only directly email support if you're paying for the site. I want to like Evernote, I really do, but I'm starting to have the same problem with it that I had with Memrise: it looks shiny and should be really great, but the programmers are more interested in building new shiny things they like than in creating a reliable product that meets the needs of the users. I'll probably stop using Evernote soon, unless I see any indication that it becomes an even remotely functional word processor. There are too many other platforms that do what I need from Evernote.

    Capture from PhraseExpress below. Since the search strings are in a table a triple click highlights the cell. Pretty straightforward, Triple click - Ctrl+C - F6 - Ctrl+V - Enter. So hover over the search term in the table, hold Alt and press the right mouse button and the phrase activates.

    Evernote web changed for me too. (firefox) But i reallllllyyy like it. Killer future for me: (i have been waiting for this so long) I can now add an attachment to a place in the note where my cursor is. Before all attachments were added on the end of the note. I do not use tags or bullet lists, so no problem for me => For some people there will be regressions (changes). But for me this time a big thumbs up.

    If you OCR your PDFs yourself they will be searchable in EN independent of subscription level. Office documents for sure and I think images require a Premium subscription.

    Hi @achaigne. We store history for all users, so if you upgrade, the history of an existing note will become available to you. You would need to upgrade to a Premium plan, though, and not Evernote Business. Evernote Business is a separate product with a distinctly "business-only" user. Upgrading to the Evernote Business would result in the creation of a new user that is separate from your current personal user.

    👍 Hence my offering of an option. EDIT: Re this option: 16 shortcuts are visible in my shortcut bar, 5 in overflow. The shortcuts appear in the same order on my iPhone.

    Funny that. At a previous job, I had been there a couple of years, and was reading the comments on someone else's checkin, and they noted it was their birthday, which was the same as mine! Turned out it was also the same year as well, though we never figured out who was actually older. I know that the probability of two people in a room of 25 or so is about 50% (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birthday_problem), but with the same birth year as well, in a company of ~200? Seems like that's a lot less probably. We also had a colleague with a Feb 29th birthday. too.

    Some people keep their shortcuts in the left panel rather than the toolbar, and you can keep the shortcuts item closed in the left panel..It's nice to have options.

    While it's a play on my real name, I picked it very much because of that. I'm a programmer - I kill bugs dead! That he was! Great guy too... (and we actually have the same birthday! We had to do some serious time-zone math to figure out who was actually older - me by a couple hours)

    That was the previous store version. When I first joined (2013), there was a single contractor who worked on that. I think he was there about a year (fuzzy memory), then that version went into a holding pattern until the Win32 version was packaged for the store. > Tell me that the old timeline view (from ca. 2008 and before) is still in there!! Sorry, no (at least I don't think so - pretty sure it was out of the code before I began). Usually when a major feature is removed, it's really removed.

    One option is to use dashboard notes tagged with the same tags as all the linked ToC notes, that way one can display all the related notes from the right side of the tag in the note, without having to access the left panel. Is what I do at least, I don't always feel the need for ToC notes when using dashboard notes this way.

    Hmmn. My saga continues... Not something which started with this version, but as an ongoing issue, the Left panel is very sensitive to the screen position of the cursor. So much so that being just past the boundary of the scroll bar still selects the item which is at that level. I went to scroll a window today, but wound up playing 'hunt the notebook' because I accidentally caught the left panel and not the scroll, and swiped the notebook up a couple of levels and into another notebook, where they made a new stack. There was no "are you sure to move this notebook?", just swish and it was gone. Easily fixed (but annoying) if you notice, but bad juju if you don't. Or swipe into a local / non-local stack.

    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.

    Append to note This is by far the biggest issue I have using Evernote. Don’t get me wrong, links is a great way to create a table of notes but not for every type of content you might want to add to a note.

    In an update last year, I lost about 1" of screen space (top list view) to the giant font headline advertising the notebook title and note count (+ a ton of empty space) I'm in. Super annoying. Then today, without having run an update in three weeks, all of a sudden I lost another 1/2" of space to - again, giant font (I'm not blind...) - "tabs" to toggle between NOTES and REMINDERS below the previous waste of header space. I want to remove or at least adjust down the loss of screen space these two headers take up so I can see more of the note I'm working in or more of the list of notes I'm using. Help? (Sidebar: I don't even use reminders, so losing yet more real estate to the "opportunity" to tab to a feature I never use + not giving me the option to edit that now-1.5" header is absurd.)

    Thank you both...sorry i've been having some health issues and couldn't get back to this until now. Yes, Gazumped, i am familiar with crashes--more than i care to think about. That's why i've got all my created files on the external drive, and also back those up to CD....i hope to get a second external drive too... the only cloud service i use really is LiveDrive, but only because there's so much on it, i don't have time to go through and make sure nothing will be lost if i cancel it. (Yes, i really do have a problem with the cloud. it makes me nervous.) So...to avoid any glitches with external drives, what if i used only the local storage features, and backed files up to my C drive, and then had a second backup on my external drive, and livedrive? And if i did it that way, is there some automated way I can do these backups to ensure i won't forget something or lose something? Is that the scheduled incremental backups export feature you suggest, DTLow? I guess i will go ahead and try to set up the livedrive sync to the evernote folder. Maybe that's all i need as automated backup, after all is said and done. (?) Thoughts? ADDENDUM: by the way, are those evernote file formats something i will always be able to access easily? (Unlike the proprietary onenote files, which is one reason i need to divorce onenote. I want to be able to control my own data no matter what a company decides to do).

    Thanks gazumped. This seems like an excellent idea. I have not considered Bitwarden. Their Web Vault with a long admin password that is easily remembered can be a one-point of contact solution for a worst-case scenario. Even their web copy points at this: "Stuck without any of your devices? Using a friend's computer? You can access your Bitwarden vault from any web enabled device by using our web vault." It seems like it makes sense to transfer all of my passwords from KeePass to Bitwarden. Thanks again.

    We users don't have a lot of insight into Evernote's issue list and their prioritization, but there's lots and lots of feature requests in this subforum (specific to Windows) and the general feature request subforum (which often apply to Evernote), We do know, or can infer, from the CEO's comments elsewhere that the Windows platform is roughly 12% of their user base, so that's a factor as well. Combined with that, they'currently engaged in large re-engineering effort across all of their clients; see the Behind the Scenes videos (https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/306-behind-the-scenes-series/) and any forum postings by the CEO @Ian Small. All of which impinge on development resources. It's not solely a matter of priority, it's always a matter of priority vs. cost. Sure there's technical debt associated with re-engineering classic Win32 API based UI for dark mode. Because it's not supported by the Microsoft APIs. See, e.g. https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/e36eb4c0-4370-4933-943d-b6fe22677e6c/dark-mode-apis?forum=windowssdk. There's no magic "Expecto Darkonus" spell, sad to say. The 6 month estimate comes from @dconnet in this very thread. Notice their user badge. I'll leave it to you to discuss with someone who's actually seen the code. For what it's worth, I value functionality, reliability and usability over dark mode, by a wide margin. Eyestrain isn't a problem for everyone (or me fortunately). But all use cases are different, and your mileage may vary. Other platforms evidently get dark mode support "for free", so that's been added as feasible. For the Windows client, a different story. I think that if it were easy, they'd have already done it.

    And sometimes the exact size isn't, that is rounding occurs. I notice this with trouble tickets. I leave the title Ticket # 999999 descriptionofproblem for emails I forward to EN. If enough bytes don't get added between emails they are theoretically duplicates in the title size match. And I'm with you, the juice is definitely not worth the squeeze.

    If you mean the automatic localization, this can be toggled on and off in the settings: Account (little man in the left column) - Settings - Notes - then it is the second toggle from the bottom that controls this feature.

    Hi. Much kudos for the detailed explanation. I have a similar application with far fewer choices. I also use an app which may be useful to you - Filterize - which will automatically populate 'dashboards' (essentially Tables of Content lists) so that all my notes with a specific tag, or title, or in certain notebooks will be added to my current list for that category. Forinstance every note I create with a 'priority 1' tag will wind up on my current to-do list.

    Hi. No great help in solving the specific issue I know, but I would use my mobile to record an audio note, leaving the PC free for additional options - search, adding text notes etc. (Actually I'd probably have a script or supporting notes on view to help me talk coherently...) Several reasons, not least that I can wander around carrying the phone - which has a better close-up mic than my laptops. The phone file - which might be an Evernote note, or one of the several other audio apps that have better pause and admin options - can be merged with or attached to another main note as necessary. In this case I'd think it's likely that dear old Windows has hijacked the microphone on your device for verbal commands and kicked Evernote out of the picture. As ever with Windows, an uninstall / reinstall might fix it. - Having said which I'm using Evernote v6.20 public and I just got an audio note without any problem. If you're just exploring, I'd say its not worth the effort to try and fix this - if you do want to record anything I'd recommend the smartphone anyway. If it's important to you, an update to 6.20 might help, otherwise I'd try a complete Revo uninstall (don't forget to sync and backup first!) and reinstall from Evernote.com. Worth raising this with Support if none of that works... Let is know how you get on!

    @Ian Small, thank's for another great video. In general, I love the direction you are headed in with respect to tags. However, I do have one UI request: Please don't waste so much vertical space on the listing of tags. This would apply to all devices, but especially to mobile devices. It is far, far more important to those of us who have lots of tags (> 1,000) to see as many tags on the screen at one time as possible, and still be readable and touchable. Also, please greatly improve the contrast of the text. The light shade of grey used for the Tag Names make it very hard to read.

    A big thanks to all of you who watched this video and have taken the time to give us your feedback – I've personally read every comment (and so has Ian). One big improvement we've made since the video, is deciding to actually show tags on the top of the note itself. We plan to show 1-2 tags to the right of the breadcrumb, so you don't have to tap on the tag icon to see them. If you don't have any tags on the note, it shouldn't take up any extra space. Hi @jefito I should clarify about nested tags on Android – currently Personal accounts can view nested tags, but Business users cannot, explaining why users are reporting different experiences. For Personal account users who have nested tags today, we hope seeing the nested tree structure you have on desktop will give you better context when viewing/managing your tags. Good news @lisec! We plan to allow filtering by tags (and notebooks) in our mobile search! In fact, when you select a tag and view a notelist associated with that tag, you can search within that list or apply more filters. @Kruger2147 You'll also be able apply multiple tags – simply start typing a tag and in the search field and we'll auto-suggest tags for you to add as filters. Don't worry, @gustavgi the "Unassign tags from all notes" feature will definitely have a confirmation dialog! This is actually a desktop feature we're bringing to mobile. Your question about tags with long names that are many levels deep is a good one. At some point, if you are 5 levels deep and have a long tag name, it will be cut off with an ellipses. That said, the designs do work well to accommodate any nested tags which are 3-5 levels deep, which is to our knowledge the majority of our use cases. So we can be better informed – I'd like to ask people on average how many levels of nested tags do you have? And how long are the titles? 💚Thanks again for being such loyal and active Evernote users. p.s. @gazumped Ian still owes me that drink...

    The big thing for me is the ability to search and filter by multiple tags at once. For example search for: New York #Policy #Tax #Employment. Being able to start typing a tag, and have autofill suggest tags as I type, tap on a tag to select and type the next tag. It would make it super fast and easy to quickly type and select multiple tags.

    The automatic conversion of ":)" to and other text-into-emojis is annoying, but that you CANNOT TURN IT OFF is INEXPLICABLE. I do a lot of writing in Evernote and then pasting to another medium, and 99% of the time EverNote's emojis aren't supported by the other medium, to add insult to the injury that I didn't want an emoji in the first place. Ctrl-Z "undoes" the conversion to emoji, but as soon as you type anything else it just converts right back, so you have to jump through ridiculous hoops just to get EverNote to SHOW THE THING YOU TYPED. I shouldn't have to write my sentence, go back to where I wanted ":)" and then cut-and-paste it in from Notepad, or put a space in the middle and then delete the space and oh heaven forbid you realize you want to put a space after it because BAM IT'S AN EMOJI AGAIN. In conclusion: please either add an option to let the user disable the emojis or just turn it off entirely.

    Dear Evernote, what's the matter? Are you sad? We know it's been hard for you.. but you hired a new CEO, you set a new vision, you raised prices, and we're still (mostly) all here. Your loyal supporters. We don't ask much, but a simple dark mode is something one or two people may have mentioned over the many years past. We know – you were busy with Evernote Food. Thank you. Then you changed the look of notebooks, made them more realistic looking. Then you changed them back again. Then you changed them to grey. Thank you for that. Then you just got rid of those pesky notebook icons. Then you did some other stuff I can't even remember, but I'm sure it was lots of work. Then you brought out a big update which allowed as to change the side bar to a dark color - YES! This was very close Evernote! Us, the people, asked for dark, and you listened. Thank you! Now we humbly come to you again and ask that perhaps you could take it just one step further... It's now the year of our lord 2018 and we were just wondering if perhaps someone who works at the Evernote headquarters could put in an extra hour or two this week and change those pale areas to glorious dark shades of black and grey. Please make this kind soul employee of the month. Thank you.

    I totally agree with the request. I work as an electrical engineer and I use OneNote so far which has formula editor integrated. Having discovered many nice features of Evernote, the lack of this feature is actually the only reason why I haven't already switched to Evernote. I definitely need this for my daily work. My preferred solution would be to enter formulas with a latex syntax. All workarounds with entering the formula somewhere else and posting an image in Evernote or handwriting the formula are really too cumbersome and cannot convince me to finally switch to Evernote.

    There are work-arounds, for example, you can first hit space or enter, and then go back using the arrow keys to type the emoticon, and then go back forth with the arrow keys to continue typing. It's a pain, however. This is a relatively new function, and it's one I can't imagine most people would appreciate, so I am of the opinion that there needs to be a way to turn it off.

    I normally have a multi-monitor display setup, where my 4K Win10 laptop, projects to an additional 2 other 1920 x 1080 screens. But right now I'm using the laptop just on its own, whilst working from my lounge. However I've noticed, that the 'View Left Panel' options, normally toggled on/off via pressing F10 shortcut key (fn+F10 keys on my laptop), or navigating to Menu>View> and clicking 'Left Panel' works fine in the beginning of each session, but then after some time becomes unresponsive and just stops working!? It happened both yesterday and today, with the only fix that appears to restore it, is to connect my laptop back up to my normal multi-monitor setup. Strangely, all other keyboard shortcuts, like F9 to Sync, or F11 to View Notes List, or using the mouse to select these via the app menu works fine... it's just F10 View Left Panel that stops working! Maybe this is a buggy Windows 10 thing. I have no idea what is happening, anyone else experience this or know how to fix? cheers I'm using EN-for-Windows (308489) Public (CE Build ce-62.3.7750)

    Hi all, We were recently advised by LinkedIn that they are making changes to their infrastructure. Unfortunately, this means that after mid-July, 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 are currently available. If you haven’t updated your mobile app by mid-July (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!
