  1. Excel has more than 400 functions. Can you please post a copy of your answer to Microsoft, listing all Excel functions that were coded into Excel without your consent and desire to use them ? I am sure you get a new Excel, stripped down to the 17 functions that got a thumbs up from you … EN is a package - other users are happy to get additional options without additional cost. If you don’t like the tasks feature, nobody forces you to use it.

  2. I'll wager that once you try using tasks, you'll appreciate the function. It adds greatly to the concept of taking notes and getting things done.

  3. Why oh why did you submit this post. Never wanted it Personally, I use Evernote as my task management tool The task feature is a work-in-progress I'm still using individual task notes, with due date stored in the reminder feature The v10 addition of due date has long been wanted As per @PinkElephant Don't get your panties in a knot about features you don't need; just don't use them

  4. Our problem with our beloved German language is that it combines words to a long one, compressing all of the meaning of half of a sentence into a word. "DonauDampfSchiffahrtsDampferKapitänsMützenEmblem" (it would be written with only 1 capital letter, at the beginning, I capitalized all new words contained) means "the badge on the cap of the captain of a ship of the steam boat service on the danube river". EN will only find "Dona.....", none of the other key words.

  6. A Free user practically lives of the marketing budget. And who pays writes the rules … Ridiculous is to believe a commercial enterprise would be a charity, and to expect a free lunch - every day, for life. It was called communism, and in case nobody told you: They tried, it did not work. As I see it you have 3 simple options, and is is your decision, not ENs which you choose: Stay on Free, accept some nagging as part of the deal Subscripe Leave

  7. Hello! Today we released Evernote for Mac 10.22.3. This release is primarily a bugfix release. It is available now via the Mac App Store and as a direct download version from our website. If you are already running one of these versions, we are progressively rolling out to compatible devices and the new version will be available on all supported operating systems within 7 days. To learn how Evernote delivers app updates, when you’re eligible for an update, and how to update your Evernote app, visit How Evernote delivers app updates to our customers. New to Mac 10.22 The app has improved link recognition in your notes. Now it'll automatically convert web URLs, phone numbers, and email addresses to clickable links; and links can also open local files and default apps like Zoom. Fixed highlights: We fixed a bug where the tasks view wouldn’t load if you’d been assigned a task and then you subsequently lost access to the task’s parent note or notebook. Previously, you couldn't select the first task in your list if it was at the top of a note. But it should be smooth sailing now. We've made some improvements to the keyboard shortcuts menu keyboard navigation. Let us know what you think and we appreciate the continued feedback. We will keep hard at work! Thank you!

  8. So, I finally took the time. I used BC Uninstaller to uninstall Evernote and deleted all the registry entries left behind. It works now.

  9. The ctrl-a shortcut for the OS X app is wrong. It should move to the beginning of the line, not select all. CMD-a should select all. Is there a way to fix this? It's not even listed in the shortcuts menu.

  10. Just solved the issue. The problem was that evernote trying to find webpage link inside the <head> while Amazon moved it into the <body> element. so to add it back to the head, just paste the following in the console document.head.appendChild($("link[rel='canonical']")); Clip the page and everything will work correctly. I suggest to use Tampermonkey to auto run the script.

  11. That's strange. I don't really use the web (online) version, but I just went into it, and there's no option for exporting to PDF from there. The help screens only mention exporting to PDF from Windows or Mac. I've tried a few more notes, but so far everything is okay. If I do come across it, I'll be sure to raise a ticket as well, so they have it from more than one person. (Might get it moved up the backlog faster that way.)

  12. thank you for the suggestion. I have more than a decade of lovingly tagged notes that I might want to read some time. searching by tags is such elemental, basic, key functionality of evernote that it should never ever not work. sadly the "ever not" approach is what evenote now stands for

  13. By scrapping an old, overly complex and not maintainable software and start with an empty sheet. This is how the new clients were born. My personal use is shifting more and more over to v10, as with new releases new and old features are rolled out, adding to the toolbox. In some aspects v10 is already the better product, in many it may be different, but on par, and some are still not working as I would expect them to do. Your experience may be different, as we are 2 different users. If what you get does not spark joy for you when using it, make a cut and move on. Looking back in a nostalgic mood does not do any good for you.

  18. EN is practically a browser extension (a large one) running inside of a framework - which itself is a browser based on Chrome(ium), not showing itself behind the app. So you have a Chrome browser open (infamous for the use of resources) running the EN app with several in-browser processes. No surprise there is a lot going on even when it seems idling along. Methods to tame it a bit: Use small(er) notes, avoid a lot of text in a single note Turn off the spell checker when you don’t need it If it seems stuck at a high CPU load, quit the app (not only hit the X, really use the menu) and restart it.

  20. I wonder if you have something odd inside your Windows preferences. Because I get exactly what I infer you require. I double click, or choose right-click Open, and Acrobat opens containing the PDF. For me, Save As is a separate menu itme on right-click. You could do the standard Quit and reboot the PC or, more likely, completely uninstall Evernote 10, ensure that the data and program directories are deleted then reinstall and let Evernote rebuild itself.

  21. I have been having the exact same problem with Evernote web clipper version 7.14.0.197-9b195f3 and gmail using chrome Version 93.0.4577.82. I have a business account and every employee account is experiencing the same issue. In addition to the gmail recognition issue, all my employees have been complaining that the clipper crashing. I have experienced the clipper crashing recently from time to time as well , I logged out and back in and cleared the chrome cache and it works but the clipper is still temperamental. This is happening on computers using windows 10 and chrome os. JayBob this does not give me a warm fuzzy feeling. The clipper has been a rock solid Evernote service for years. The ability to easily get emails into Evernote has been kept me loyal since 2012 . I hope it doesn't change.

  22. You could try to use the HTML export where the attachements are saved in seperate folders per note. This prevents name clashing in case of duplicate attachment names in different notes

  23. After some kind of search, I often (but not consistently) get some version of "Note can't be displayed", usually an icon but sometimes an icon with text saying the document might have moved. This would appear to leave me at a dead end. But I found that the note can be displayed by simply changing the editor using the lower right hand corner button. Evernote warns about falling back to the old editor, but doing so actually displays the note. Oddly, if a note can't be displayed while the old editor is active, switching to the new editor displays the note. I deduce that this doesn't have anything to do with the choice of editor, but that the act of changing editors kicks something loose in Evernote. This has been a lifesaver for me and hope it helps someone else.

  24. I agree workaround is not clean. It has been ~3 months since issue was reported, so I just wanted to post the solution for the dev team that its just 1 word fix not a complete rewrite of the code. Hope they pick it.

  25. @WeCanLearnAnything It’s a use case thing in some respects. For me V10 is simply too slow performance wise and is click heavy on top of that. While missing features. In my use case everything just takes longer, much longer. With EN being a hub for me that is untenable I have dipped my toe in the Windows V10 pool every couple of months and have seen minor at best improvements. But still painfully slow each time, again for my use case. Throw your mouse at the wall slow. IOS has made noticeable progress other than the “has my stuff synced yet?” issue. I continue to use 6.25.1. At this point I will use it until it sunsets. Works like a charm. But I have begun to build a parallel data base of all the PDFs of the paperless bit of my use case. I would not want to do that export with V10, it might take forever So safety warrants I do it now. Net of it all you can fire it up and see how it works for you.

  26. Same issue here. I tried several remedies such as disconnecting calendar service, rebooting computer, reconnecting, etc. Finally stumbled on to unchecking calendar in the widget menu then rechecking the calendar. That worked for me and I will use as a workaround until the bug is fixed.

  27. The EN iOS releases are available early, sometimes even before they are announced in the forum by EN staff. To me it does not look like they roll it out staged. Maybe the reason is that the iOS app is not creating a lot of trouble. It is stable, few bugs, so no big deal for support. By staging the Android releases EN might try to balance the support workload, and be able to detect issues early and prepare a standard reaction for support. Just my 5 ct …

  28. Although this is all true, it's good software development practice to do staged rollouts. These are supported on the iOS app store as well (I believe they call them phased rollouts), although I don't currently use Evernote on iOS so I don't know whether Evernote are utilizing them. What IS different on the Google Play store (and something that I wish they would copy from the iOS App store) is that users who have not been selected to be in the current stage can not force an update to the latest version without resorting to side loading. In contrast, my understanding is that if someone hears about an app update on iOS, even if the staged rollout has not reached them yet, they can launch the app store and choose to manually update the app right away.

  29. Hi, I just went through support (ticket# 3383733) to be confirmed, that Evernote 10 for Android has NO background sync capabilities. Back in the days EN 8.13.3 could be set to a specific sync interval for background syncing so that when you start the app you are good to go with the remote changes already being on your device. In 2021 we have push syncing cloud services. OneNote and Google Keep do real time syncing without even having to start the app. Let's look what missing background syncing means at the moment: - no remote changes on scratchpads are on your mobile when you fire up EN10 on the go (having to wait 20-60 seconds to load then) - no remote set or changed reminders are on your mobile so you are likely to miss your reminders (this happens to me regularly) - no remote changes in your notes contained in offline notebooks are downloaded to your device so you cannot rely on having the latest stuff on the device when being offline later. - when firing up EN for Android I have to wait around 20-60 seconds to have "home"-screen updated completely if EN did not run for some hours on mobile. Support seriously told me, to be sure to have these standards features you have to open the mobile app after every time you did a change on web or desktop. If you collaborate with others you don't know about the changes and are out of luck. I suggest re-adding a background or push sync Android service to EN10 that could ensure this basic syncing stuff by updating the database in the background (as back in EN8.13.3).

  30. I completely agree. The current behavior could be improved. My expectation is what I enter a new task (when I hit the plus button on the side bar), I would like the task to be in the default task note, not the note that happens to be displayed. (If I was interested in entering a task within the note, I would use the plus button that's within the note menu bar.)

  31. I can confirm this issue using the following version of Evernote on Mac: 10.21.5-mac-mas-public (458776) Editor: v131.1.16771 Service: v1.39.1 Described in my tweet thread here: https://twitter.com/trutane/status/1438939306639327232 This issue occurs in the main body of a text note, but interestingly, it does not happen in the note's title where ctrl-A works as expected. I've submitted a support ticket for this (#3384041). Hope it is resolved soon!

  32. Oh Jeeeez... Had files sent to my Evernote Inbox. Once upon a time, I clicked "Sync" and they were there. Every time. This time my files did not show up. Remember - I wanted to sort them in Evernote right after sending them, but I could not, because they were not there. I could also not sync, because as I found shortly after getting angry and googling it, some genius removed the sync button. I tried another day (we all got time, right?) and there they are. Just did another test and send a file to my inbox two times in a row five mins in - nothing synced. I shared to my mac´s desktop and copied into Evernote by hand. Thank you very much for the new hassle.

  33. The file associations are correct and my PDF reader always launches when clicking the relevant icon. Up until the last update it was working fine in Evernote too. I might try reinstalling it.

  34. Yes, but it won't affect access to the shared notebook. See @PinkElephant's comment above. The free account can't create 25MB+ notes, but it can access a 1MB note if that note was created elsewhere. The free account wouldn't be able to edit the large note though, just view it. Or you could both have a paid account....

  37. In all cases, when I go to the search field (global keys Cmd + control + E), I need to make a new search. But when you go to the search field, this field may contain the text of the previous query, the cursor rises to the beginning or end of the already existing text in this field. You have to delete the text first, and then enter new text for the search. This is unnecessary keystrokes and a waste of precious time. If the existing text was completely selected, it would be possible to immediately enter new text that would replace the old one. Offer: When you go to the search field using the global keys, select the entire available text.

  38. You are likely exceeding your devices limit. Allowed are 2 synced devices, or just 1 if you want to add another. If above, this loading screen will show. Go to your account settings and select the "devices" tab. You can unsync devices there. There is a limit on the number of unsyncs as well. https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/218558068-Understanding-the-device-limit

  39. I think it would be great if we could color-code the task bullet points, as well as the actual text in each task! Right now, I am trying to keep track of my to-dos in a Note so that I can see all the subjects color-coded, all in one place (Today). My gripe is that there is no way to select multiple checklist items (by dragging the bar next to it) to move them all at once, unless you copy and paste. It's tedious to move each one individually so I wish this was all just in the regular Tasks feature.

  40. This is the issue i was having too, the app is now opening but tasks still does as you describe. In the end I decided enough was enough, I don't need an service in which who knows which parts will work on any given day. I have backed EN10 and still think its the right call but the glitches on top of stripping it back when I feared my account was breached have taken me to the point that I just don't have a use for the app now. Today I cancelled my subscription.

  41. I am currently on version 10.12.6 of Evernote for Mac and the ability to create a link in a note that opens a local file or folder has not been reinstated. Will this functionality be reinstated in Version 10 of Evernote? This worked in prior versions by creating a link that has the file:// prefix.

  43. Hey Evernote, I really would like a collapsible toggle list (like a toggle list in Notion). That would give a lot more structure in making notes! Is there something like this coming up in future versions?

  44. For me this is annoying as hell. Evernote is really going down with their policies. They are forcing users to use what the developers like and not the users. How can you you redesign the way people access their notes and not only force it without opting out, but also make the changes only for premium. I’m not a free user, I’m a plus user so I also pay for this. Terrible idea. I’ve been fighting for the past two or three upgrades because I’m also being forced to use auto format. Auto format off used to be an option and not anymore. I can’t understand why Evernote does not want to even have a setting for on-off. I’m using a Legacy version just because of this. And now with the new ridiculous dashboard. The worst feeling is that you are stuck, because you can’t just stop using an app you used for 10 years and have thousands of documents. Evernote employees used to hang out in the forum and reply in a few hours, look for solutions. Not anymore. The new direction of the company is very disappointing.

  45. I'm a happy Evernote user, but I miss a feature many people have asked for and will greatly appreciate - support for LaTeX formulas. If may sound complicated, but integration should be actually extremely simple. Here's how it could work: 1) Similarly to URL-to-hyperlink conversion, a LaTeX formula could be automatically generated by converting text surrounded by specific characters ($ in LaTeX). For example, I can type "Today we will discuss how equations of the form $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$ can be solved" 2) Finally, the formula text can be converted to an image. Luckily, there are many online services that given the LaTeX source produce a PNG image (even with transparency and custom color by some services). So the only thing the Evernote team needs to implement is to provide the option to automatically and manyally convert a piece of text to an image by querying some well-established online service. So adding LaTeX math support boild down to implementing a simple UI feature! Now it sounds simple, but this could be a selling point to a huge amount of people (especially in academia). I'm not aware of any good note taking tool that has seamless formula integration and synchronization. Even in the current Evernote state the functionality can be emulated by dragging LaTeX formula images to Evernote. However, this is tedious and does not facilitate modifications. Therefore, it would be good after the image has been acquired, the source text to be saved along for future modifications. What do you think, Evernote staff? P.S. I just saw on your blog that you're supporting the use of Evernote in schools, etc. This makes the suggested feature even more prominent.

  46. As per the title - I used to be able to align images in the previous version of Evernote...WHY would they remove this? Bloody Microsoft Word 95 had the ability to align images. I've attached the alignment button - it is now greyed out when an image is clicked. Such a basic feature - don't run before you can barely crawl.

  47. How can one go back to the previous version of Evernote? The current one is unusable. The latest version of Evernote takes five seconds to open on a phone with Snapdragon 855. Hyperlinks in notes don't open any longer. Search is slow. I'm not sure why the decision was made to release this Evernote version without proper testing but at least provide a way to go back to the previous version. Thank you. 😊

  48. All of my notes in Arabic are ruined. I have used Evernote for years and now this update which ruined the limited RTL support my iOS version of the app had has made Evernote useless to me and jumbled years of my work. I could not be more disappointed in this program and now I have to figure out how to migrate all my material to an app that actually cares about non-Western languages.

  49. Please, please restore the manual sync button. I have had enough sad experiences of changes not syncing properly across my laptop, desktop and mobile phone. Like many users, I switch between devices frequently. Having a sync button that gives users confidence that everything is synced upon starting up or closing down an instance of Evernote is a no-brainer. I'm sure your rationale for removing the button is "our new version is so stable and smart now, we don't need it, just trust us, it'll always work." If so, there's no cost to showing users a *confirmation* that it has worked. Please.
