    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.

    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

    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!

    Shift+Click on the notebook name in the note editor sets the current note filter to notes in that notebook (and highlights it in the left panel as well).

    Are you by any chance using a beta version of Evernote? I can confirm this feature is missing in the latest beta release on iOS.

    Just want to reiterate the point that building the new editor on WebKit-exclusive functionality is a VERY BAD IDEA. Mozilla is pretty much the last bastion against Google's complete dominance of the browser market. You are actively hurting the concept of an open internet by choosing not to adhere to web standards when building you product.

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

    Right-click on a notebook in the left panel (note: doesn't work for stacks), and select "Style...". It is present in (308555) Public (CE Build ce-62.3.7750), which I am also using.

    No, they're not giving a timeline. I think once they've stabilized the features in the Note Editor inside Evernote Web, they'll have a better idea about timelines for pushing this to the desktop and mobile software. 🙏🏼

    Good catch, we should have said "Undo" instead of command Z. So it is the Undo equivalent. Sorry for the confusion.

    Thank you for your suggestion. Eventually I tried uninstalling the App, it worked again, I can sign in again. Evernote support staff eagerly help me to find the way to get it fixed, but uninstalling the App seemed to be the best way for me, even I had to accept some notes which was not synced up yet lost.

    Hmm, not sure about number of words, but I notice little to no slowdown in notes from 3 to 28 megabytes, with graphics &, tables, even PDF notes get only somewhat slower. But I have a number of notes copied from the internet, 1 megabyte or less in size, but they are copies of heavily formatted pages, one of them is from a Facebook page. Those notes are very slow to display. In general, I find information I copy from the web with formatting preserved, may go from slightly slower to very slow, so I usually strip things up when I can, unless the formatting is important. It may also happen if the note has errors, in such cases I rebuild the note, just in case.

    I think I've "solved" it. I had changed my long date format (System Preferences->Languages & Region) to be YYYYMMDD. When I look at my Note Details it shows in that format - eg "20190718 at 14:00", but it seems to be unable to parse any changes to the date in that format (hence the beep and reverting to the original time/date). I changed back to the system default format so Evernote now shows the dates in the format "18 July 2019 at 14:00" and I can change them! So not ideal (and really a bug) but at least I can change them now. Now I need to find another way to get Cmd-Shift-D to insert a usable (and sortable) date format! Thanks for the pointers.

    Oh what the hey... After a long and intensive analysis of the available products on the market (a hard job, but someone had to do it) I eventually found the one clear winner for my specific circumstances. That was (and continues to be, until I find something better) Wychwood King Goblin er, Evernote. Honeshtly ossifer.

    Hi, can someone help me. I was registered on evernote@evernote.com email (wrong one), but my correct email actually is evernote@evernote.io Now I have to resert my pasword, they send me email to evernote@evernote.com but I do not have such an email, I do not have access. I know my passwords and etc I just do not have access to evernote@evernote.com How I can reset it, how I can get back my notes? Maybe somehow I can still connect with old password and change email?

    Hi. Not my first rodeo - try the 'as a guest' option on the Support page, or Twitter. If you can get to a ticket number, we can flag up your query for a member of staff to look at. Whilst we other users can offer suggestions for the best course of action, we just don't have the access to help directly in this case. ...and @PinkElephant was probably referring to this sort of thing- https://discussion.evernote.com/announcement/66-access-issues-unable-to-login-to-your-evernote-account/ https://discussion.evernote.com/announcement/67-billingpaymentsubscriptionadministrative-issues/

    Then this is clearly a bug in v. 6.19. @dmitry_bond, since you discovered the problem and have a Premium account, perhaps you should open a support ticket and report this issue. Or report it on the thread for v. 6.19.

    There is only one side that will not allow you to board an Intercity train, reject your university application or send you to a Labour camp - all of this due to a lack of political correctness and deviation from the true doctrine. The social point system is Orwell reloaded. I prefer to get some good ads when I don’t expect them, and have my backups done by the guys up in Utah 😇

    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.

    Thanks cal and PinkElephant That helped. Avoiding formatting is fine and removing was vexing me. Sorry to vent frustration , but I had gone down too many rabbit holes trying to find that fix. I am happy with simpler , so many programs are getting feature creep that begin to eclipse the need for robust functionality mostly with features that few need. I wish EN had a Less expensive buy in/upgrade, like the discontinued ENPlus

    Right, it wasn't the a great example for organization structure I would put HK Restaurant as a sub tag of Hong Kong (I like prefixed tagnames) Unless they are planning a redesign on tag hierarchy >>alleviate the endless folders vs tags discussions... Only if they rename Tags to .... Folders 😋

    I have the free version of EverNote. I will upgrade to premium when I have the ability to encrypt my data at rest on the EverNote cloud servers. I've looked for hours and can't find any way to encrypt a notebook within EverNote. Therefore, I can't use this product and expose my information while it's at rest on the EverNote servers. (I will use several devices to access EverNote so I don't want to use local notebooks which are difficult to share between devices.) In any case, how is it possible that a mature product like EverNote doesn't have the ability to encrypt whole notebooks? Why don't they add this feature and double their revenue with new subscriptions?

    I hope the tag restructuring that Ian was talking about (there was a phrase to that effect anyway) is limited to ensuring that tags are available in the same way across all clients, and not to some "improvements" in the theory and application of tags. In Windows Desktop I have cycled through various systems over several years until I now have a combination of notebooks, tags and note titles that define my library of information quite nicely for me. I'd be... unhappy.. if the nature of any of any of those items changed. (Having said which, it's high time tagging in Android was as simple and effective as tagging in Windows.) And hey - while you're into tagging, how about improving Note Linking so we can jump from note to note (and maybe from heading to heading) when browsing our data? But I'm with @PinkElephant. Please spend your cash on engineers, not marketers; and take the time you need to make sure the next iteration of the product is (reasonably) bullet-proof and fit for purpose!

    Win32 refers to both 32bit and 64bit apps. It is the API interface, not the bittedness. The underlying platform of macOS does have its roots in the 70's, but the user interface was developed fresh when they started over with OS X and was designed to handle multiple DPI monitors of high and low res (which Windows still cannot handle without the DPI percentage adjustment hack) and their UI was designed to have better control so the OS could adjust apps colors right from the start. Hence system wide dark mode without apps having to be rewritten. Windows has done the same rewrite by the way, but only for UWP/PWA style apps. Which no one is using. My understanding it is a virtual impossibility to do it for Win32. It would be as much work for developers to rewrite to support as it would to just redo their apps. Which will be never. We'll be dealing with Win32 APIs until well past 2050. IT departments will not rewrite apps to support dark mode. If you want dark mode, they will let you use the AS/400.

    When cooking I would rather not have to play around with search or something. All in one note - I am sharing this notebook with my wife. And I MUST not create a mess in there 😱🤣 Maybe you could insert a table into the note, and place the pics in the table cells. Have not tried it, but it should keep things at its place. And it gives some control over layout, plus you can add the text to the foto, keeping it together.

    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

    Dear Ian, dear team, first, the new openness and integration of users is very positive. No company can tell everything, but involving users to get feedback - like in this thread - is always leading to a better product. Second, I like the incremental approach. Much better to improve things in steps, we all can feel, try and comment on, than being promised a big leap whenever (and often never). Third, any focus on the engine that drives EN is very valuable. For me what counts is the reliable, performant structure deep inside, not wet, shiny paint on the surface. Keep up the focus, keep up the drive !

    Hi, I am a user of Evernote Premium and I love the core Evernote ideology of having the best search around. However, I am very interested in using evernote for digital note taking via handwriting on a Samsung tablet with s-pen. The following are a few features that would make this functionality much more useful to me: 1. More stroke width options - The smallest stroke width is still way too big for me. I want to be able to write small. 2. Ability to set background to lined paper 3. Support for pressure sensitive input from s-pen, asus pen, etc. 4. Ability to zoom in/out and pan - Currently it just lets me add pages. I do not like writing close to the edges of the tablet because it is not comfortable when I am writing on the couch. 5. More pen colors and highlighting. Upvote if you also want one or more of these features. Thank you for making my experience the best it can be. Please let me know if any of this functionality is in the works or when I could expect to see these.

    Yes, me too. Well I already a premium user (with my working account) and the only reason I use 2 account is I don't want other to see my secure note accidentally when I presenting them with my other notes. It's even ok if it's not encrypted at all, but just need a passcode to open the notebook.

    At present in the Android app, notebooks can be downloaded for offline use, but they can only be saved in internal storage. Allowing the offline notebooks to be moved to an SD card would make this feature much more relevant/useful.

    Currently, folder sort view is managed by a global setting that affects all notebooks. So if you sort one notebook by alpha, then all notebooks are sorted by alpha. I propose making this global setting a checkbox in preferences. The default is this setting is "checked," meaning one global rule for sorting all notebooks (the way things are now). But if you "uncheck" the box, then each folder could have its own sorting parameter. For example, you might sort an inbox folder by date, but you'd sort a folder of favorite recipes by alpha. What happens when you uncheck the box in preferences? All folders would have a default initial sort parameter equal to the one that existed immediately before the unchecking of the box. That is, if you're on the global setting and sorting by alpha, then if you uncheck the box, all folders would have an initial parameter of alpha sort. But then you could subsequently change this in each folder by choosing a new sort parameter (which would then obviously be remembered on a folder specific basis).

    This is a very, very, long-standing HTML feature, and oh so very useful for long notes. Two features I see essential for long (more than one page/screen) notes: Anchors/bookmarks Collapsible sections Both have been available in web pages since the early days of the web (late 1990's). ATTN: Evernote/ @Jackolicious, @SoftwareMarcus, @Justin Street: Come on, this is the very definition of productivity!
