    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!

    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.

    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!

    Hey everyone, I just wanted to chime in. Thanks @Dave-in-Decatur for the ping. The older version of Evernote Web (white and green UI) did have a safety mechanism that would duplicate your notes with the additional content typed if it detected poor internet connection or interruption in service. This isn't an ideal solution, but we had to make a decision on implementing this over letting users lose their data. So although an unorthodox behavior, it did prevent users from losing their data in case their connection went south. The new version of Evernote Web doesn't do this because it has a momentarily ability to survive offline for some time, but it has a bug with duplicating notes that we're fixing right now. This is about 90% fixed at this time and mostly manifested itself in version 6.11. We still expect to see some reports of this issue on versions 6.12 and 6.13, but not as frequent. If you have a reproducible case in versions 6.12 or 6.13, please let me know. Sorry for the inconvenience here folks. Just wanted to let you know that we're doing progress in getting this fixed as soon as possible.

    Hi All, You may have noticed that all threads requesting an Evernote integration with Grammarly have been merged into this thread, regardless of platform specificity. This was done in order to better enable us to quantify and qualify user requests, and amplify their voice. While this does not mean this is a feature that will be coming, we certainly want to relay user feedback/sentiment to our various teams. Moving forward, please put all commentary and votes for an Evernote/Grammarly integration here!

    My understanding of the Zettelkasten methodology is Individual Notes each having a unique note-id identify note source identify note hierarchy; optional for note sets Tags to identify the note topic(s) Links between notes Tag Index to find notes related to a topic Notes are the basic element of Evernote I'm easy on the note content, however true Zettelkasten restricts the note to a single thought A template can be used I use the generated Evernote note-id; (it's integral to the note link feature) It's hidden metadata, but I append a copy to the note contents example: 70b889b9-63fc-479f-ab98-5dd75e6bc2ed There is a metadata field to identify the note source For note hierarchy, I include a table-of-contents section in the note I use the Evernote tag feature True Zettelkasten is restrictive on tags as described here (I still don't understand good/bad tags) I avoid "orphan tags"; my tag-naming reflects tag hierarchy example: Budget, Budget-Food, Budget-Housing, ... I use the Evernote note link feature It's actually a url like evernote:///view/1156250/s10/70b889b9-63fc-479f-ab98-5dd7... To find Notes, Evernote has an extensive search feature In addition to the tags assigned to the note we can also use text search, dates, ....

    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.

    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, 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

    Hi... Tried EN many moons ago, then went with OneNote but EN's cloud and accessible anywhere features are bringing me back...Enough kudos... Is there a way to mark a note as "read-only" so I cannot accidentally erase or modify it? Thanks. Alex

    I will agree to disagree. To me Evernote is not a task/note app, its a framework. A framework you build your style into for your own purpose. I use it for information storage and retrieval mostly, but very little workflow, except for some projects for myself. Task management is better managed in my Microsoft Todo app. Your argument can be applied to any of the product companies out there competing against Evernote. Each is adding functions and features, risking to be what I call the kitchen sink. Trying to be all things to all people at once because a few people shouted louder than the others. But you must do what is best for you. Find the app that fits your needs, and style. You don't sound like anything is holding you on with Evernote. So why argue to those who have found Evernote fits them? "The needs of the many, out way the needs of the few, or the one." - Spock

    Hi there everyone, thanks for mentioning this. Here are the details about the updates containing the fix for YouTube pages not loading Clipper depending on your browser of choice: If you prefer Chrome or Edge, the updated version containing the fix is If you prefer Safari, the updated version containing the fix is The version number is different from Chrome and Edge, but functionally the same release. If you prefer Firefox, this is currently still on and does not contain the fix yet. Additional unrelated changes are necessary for Firefox and we're working on getting this updated and released as soon as possible, but no estimate at this time. If you use Firefox and need to clip a YouTube page, while not ideal, please use another browser in the meantime to work around the issue. Thank you!

    A contrarian view. I don't think EN is the place for things like grocery lists, particularly if you share the list with someone. Just not as easy as a standalone app. Our household started with Wunderlist and morphed to Microsoft To Do. One shared list, maintainable from about any platform, press the square box and the item drops off the list. EN works fine for single item purchase stuff. And I do use EN for all my to do items using the reminder functionality. Over 2,000 notes have had or currently have a reminder at this point. That bit works well for my use case, but not grocery lists.

    This merging feature really needs to be implemented on iOS it is fundamental. I have been a dedicated Evernote paid user Since 2010, I have wanted this feature since I started. At first I thought I was just missing how to do it on iOS, I could not believe it was not possible. So I have been living with the situation. This is the first time I have been on this forum in a long time and I scanned this thread and just shaking my head. Please get this done, it’s clearly needed. Thanks, Dave

    @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.

    It does seem like this ought to exist, maybe as a pinned note in this forum. Although the release notes on the Android app are so pathetic they might was well not exist, so I wouldn't be too hopeful of something useful. They seem to be putting out minor updates pretty frequently these days (it's up to 6.14 in Opera for me), always without notification, here or elsewhere.

    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.

    Well, there seem to be several different feature requests here. There are various comments regarding security of our overall data and encryption, and cloud security, etc. I'm comfortable with the overall security of my Evernote data, even if that is a bit of ignorant bliss. I am "desperate" for something far more basic, something that seems to have appealed to many, many users over the many years I've been a Premium EN user: An ability to password protect a notebook consisting of all the notes I don't want anyone to read or see and don't want to pop up in EN searches. This isn't because I want to keep passwords safe (though that is as good a reason as any), since I use 1Password. I just want a simple ability to keep personal journal entries, certain web clippings, photos and the like, separate and secure with an additional layer of password protection. I'll give you a couple of case scenarios: I am a college professor. Students often literally read over my shoulder while I show them documents or web pages on my screen. I would like to easily switch to Evernote to show them saved files of examples or articles. However, I don't want journal snippets -- or web clippings of gifts I'm eyeing for my family, or recipes I've saved, or photos of my children's artwork or my brother's prized classic car -- showing up in that search. I've had the same usage concern with consulting clients, because I use EN to organize those materials, as well. Another case: Although I use a privacy screen on my devices, none is 100%. I do not want to have to worry about prying eyes next to me or behind me every time I perform a search on my Evernote in a public place. The note encryption is not sufficient, since it balks at my web clips and doesn't tolerate formatting or longer lengths. Last example: The potentially horrifying default logon view. The contents of Evernote's encrypted notes are excluded from search and have a box in place of the contents, which keep them out of snippet view. With an encrypted and password-protected notebook, I'd hope the titles, also, would be omitted from snippets and search. As it is, if I'm at work and decide to show someone an Evernote file, when I open EN, the left pane displays notes with such professional and non-confidential titles as, "Really Dirty Jokes to Tell Brother," "Easy Ways To Fire 50% of Staff THIS WEEK," "Quit To Become a Pro Butter Churner? Pros & Cons," and "June 18, Reflections: Today I realized WHY I hate this job. It's because of my useless coworkers, loathsome boss, petulant clients ..." (ADDED after original post. Thanks @Jay Starkey for the reminder of this predicament.) Of course, there are workarounds, most obviously, not having someone read over my shoulder. I can also try to pull things ahead of time, find other ways of working around nosey neighbors, etc. But I am an Evernote devotee. I use it for everything and I love its search functions and the ability to trip across related saved documents by searching a word or tag. There are times I like sharing my EN screen with individual students, clients or even a lecture hall. Other users share their EN with assistants or family and because of a need to share many things across many notebooks, find it impractical to give others only specific notebook access. Seems pretty easy to understand why they, too, would find it much easier to make one or more notebooks completely private only to them. I understand the notion of using different apps and software for different things. But what made Evernote my Holy Grail of information control was following advice I read years ago: Put EVERYTHING in it, so you have one place to look. I have plenty of exceptions, such as not using it for passwords. But it works best for me if I use it for almost all notes and document storage, personally generated and web saved. Therefore, I don't really want another system for my journal, random web clips, and pictures I've taken of my children's artwork -- even though I don't want any of those things popping up in a search or along my sidebar. Having a private notebook, or several private notebooks, would solve my concerns as well as those of countless other paying EN customers.

    I have specifically logged in to this form as a first time poster just to respond to this. HTML 1.0, released in 1993 had 42 TOTAL tags supported in the language. PRE was one of those. How the heck hard can it be to create a button to create a code snippit section in Evernote that does not: * Spell Correct * Replace Quotes with stupid MS Word Style Quotes * Replace Double Dashes with Em Dashes * Etc. This is a CODE BLOCK for Christ's sake. This isn't about syntax highlighting, or turning Evernote into an IDE. It's about simply storing what I want it to store in the format I asked it to store it in. If I put the word "ansible" into Evernote it should not AUTOMATICALLY change it to "sensible" for me, it should NOT do it AGAIN after I CORRECT it, and it should not take me adding the word to the bloody dictionary before it will finally stop trying to auto-correct it in EVERY LINE. I'm not sure who you think your audience is? Almost every white collar job these days has it's hand in Big Data, Cloud or Web in some way, meaning the VAST MAJORITY of your customer base has SOME NEED to store SOMETHING that looks like an unformatted text string, likely containing words, phrases or symbols that do not translate into a dictionary word. Again the VAST MAJORITY of these text strings have an importance to be stored AS IS, as copied into the program without ANY modification AT ALL. 1993 we had that capability on web pages. Every WIKI, IDE, Forums Software and Text Editor in existence has AT MINIMUM this feature functionality. I notice the box I am CURRENTLY TYING IN did not auto-correct any of the words i've put in, making EVEN IT be SIGNIFICANTLY more useful to the standard/average user of your software THAN YOUR ACTUAL SOFTWARE IS. I am now ACTIVELY looking to get off your platform. There are posts i've run across in the last 3 top hits on google dating back to 2016, I don't know how it's even possible after 4 years of customers complaining and in 2020 to have a text editor without basic functionality like "in this block of text, please don't change what I type" let alone "please recognize this block of text for what it is and highlight it appropriately". Why do I get the feeling Evernote is a company of two people in a house somewhere who spend all day checking their monthly income statements.

    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

You guys have done a wonderful job with this product and my hat goes off to you... However, this feature would be HUGE to me, and apparently many others. PLEASE consider adding this feature sooner than later. As mentioned, I am loyal but I have begun to research alternatives that would offer this feature. I really don't want to switch though. just being honest You guys rock!!! Best Regards, Craig
