  1. Do you have a passcode configured for evernote? I remember that the Android app uses the safety feature of android that allows an app to prohibit screenshots (used by banking apps for example), but I've forgotten what criteria have to be fulfilled. I can take a screenshot in Evernote on my phone and I don't have a passcode configured.

  2. See note below before doing this I created a Template that Looks Like This : Do Not Press ENTER Instead Use COPY and PASTE to Add More Boxes [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] Notes: [ ] On Desktop Use Ctrl+Shift+C On Android Plus Sign in Blue Circle on Upper Left Select Checkbox Copy = Ctrl+C Paste = Ctrl+V Important not to use ENTER

  3. But it is not a new feature, this is a severe regression bug. It was working fine, and after the upgrade, it was no longer working at all. So this should be a regression bug that requires fixing. The workarounds suggested simply makes life so much more difficult. what used to be a 1 action (ctrl-c, ctrl-v) that worked on any other platform (ppt, word, web, email) now requires 5 actions: click on save as name the image uniquely on other apps, click upload button scroll or search for the image name click OK Does anyone know if OneNote has

  4. This has not worked properly since the release of Evernote 10. Fixing the most basic stuff that used to be functional and isn't anymore with v10 is apparently considered a feature by EN support. Better yet, try to use the Webclipper to clip a screenshot. Not only you cannot copy / paste outside of Evernote but you cannot open the image in an external editor and when you try to "Save as" you are supposed to manually add a file extension (guesswork here). Compare this with Evernote Legacy where the image was given a name and extension as expected. Please let us copy / paste image

  6. -1 .... just want to add my voice that I really hope that Evernote doesn't change this. I really like the strikethrough when completing check list items and the ability to add a check box in-line separate from a checklist item that impacts the entire line.

  7. Big shrug coming for you here, @Aaron7718: it never stopped working for me. But clearly that's not the case for others. I've read some discussion that suggests that it's the version from the App Store that has this issue and, if you download directly from Evernote, it may work; I have always installed Evernote from direct download. In any case, there's a thread on which someone has used a utility called SwiftDefaultApps to resolve this issue. It seems to be a solid workaround until Evernote resolves the primary problem. Here's the aforementioned thread:

  8. I have lots of lists using the old checkbox feature and I especially like that the text does not change to strike-through after checking the checkbox. After upgrading to v10.4.4, Evernote for Windows keeps automatically switching my check box lists to checklists and changes all text to strike-through for checked items. This happens anytime I press enter anywhere in any of the items on any line. It is impossible to add a new line anywhere - in the middle, at the end, ANYWHERE, without the list getting switched to a checklist. PLEASE allow us to disable this new "feature". I can understand

  9. So.Damn.Slow. They've just killed Evernote for me. I've been a paying subscriber for years & I am ready to call it quits. I used to tell everyone I knew how much I loved and recommend Evernote. Not any more. The Product and Dev folks must not use Evernote. So much for the 100-year company...

  10. Usually I keep the both tools apart. As long as I am taking notes on an issue, they stay in GoodNotes. Search there is pretty good, I can make edits, I have presentation mode. Presentation mode is pretty useful as a virtual replacement for a conventional flip chart in these times. Once a project is done, or on regular notes from time to time, I close the GN notebook and export as pdf to EN. I include the search index GN has build because I think on handwriting it is better than the server based OCR of EN. In EN it is filed together with other documents on the same project or work area.

  12. This is what I find so interesting as well ! Ok sure, I assume the idiot managers likely don't use Evernote much but surely someone in the company must!?! If they did though I just don't see how on earth they would have released it. Baffling to me.

  13. The two workarounds that have been documented in this forum no longer seem to reliably work. ie put a space before the checkbox put the checkbox in a bulleted list You think it is working and then when you come back to it has either converted to a checklist or when you then do something like hit return it converts Another two options are: Put a different character (eg a period) before the checkbox. In light mode you can't make the leading character white (it reverts to black when you leave and come back to the note) but you can make it a faint grey if you want to.

  14. Don't know if we suggested it at some point in this narrative, but has anyone thought of using an external RTL editor and saving the source file in an Evernote note? If the editor outputs to searchable PDF files, the documents would even be searchable - definitely for subscribers, maybe for free users...

  15. PLEASE bring back custom fonts!! This was one of the many reasons why I love EVERNOTE . I LOVE Evernote but the lack of being able to choose a custom font on the new 10.0 Mac Desktop App is highly disappointing and frustrating!! Only having 6 fonts to choose from is SO archaic!! I can understand this update on the WEB version and even on the IOS versions but NOT on the desktop version!! I am a graphic designer and this is CRITICAL to my business!! One of the reasons I chose Evernote is because I had the freedom to choose my own fonts, colors, styles, formatting, etc. and I was able to import

  16. I honestly thought that making a checkbox list from the dropdown menu also meant it would stay a checkbox list. But when I press enter to add a new row, it ***CONVERTS THE WHOLE LIST*** to a checklist.... WHAT?

  17. The typing slowness is absolutely untenable. After 10+ years of using this product, it might be time to find something else. There's no point if it can't keep up with my typing. If I'm on a video call? Forget it, I had to pop open text edit and put all my notes there because Evernote could hardly respond at all. Interested to hear if your support ticket gets us anywhere. For now, I'm researching new products :(.

  18. I was contacted by email by Evernote Support (within 1 day) and they asked me to do a QuickTime video of my screen as I experienced the typing slowness in a large text file. The large text file edited just fine in Evernote Legacy, allowing me to add lines at the end with no typing slowness. I closed Evernote Legacy and opened Evernote Mac v10.6.9. I opened the same note. I started the QuickTime screen capture video. I started typing 4 lines. After 3 characters appeared on the screen, none of my additional typing appeared. Then after about 5 minutes (yes...5 MINUTES) the text that I had typed a

  20. Totally agree. It's frustrating not only because when we press enter for a new line it transforms into a checklist, but also because it's indented. I manage checklist/boxes within tables and this messes up with the whole design and width of columns. Typing a space before the box it's a workaround but it'd be nice that they fix this so it doesn't switch automatically.

  21. On a Mac AFAIK there are 2 options that meet your search conditions: DEVONthink, which is mainly a local installation, with an optional cloud sync. For teams they have a Server install as well. Apple Notes, that is mainly iCloud based, but offers a local „on device“ (= 1 device, no sync) option Both have their own features, IMHO DEVONthink is what gets closest to EN, including tags, clipper, AI-based search etc. And they are around long enough to offer a stable environment. On the other hand, it is more „nerdy“ than EN. One should make a long, deep test run before moving. O

  22. Question 2: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/360056549574 Use the app AppCleaner to remove any app without traces from a Mac. Make sure to tick all options in the selection window. Question 1: Do a search here, or better read a little before you move: https://discourse.devontechnologies.com Personally I have done my research, decided to run legacy for a while and see how v10 evolves.

  23. The comment of the CEO about few users using tags is what concerned me the most, to be honest. Tags are a VERY big part of my workflow, and the main reason I chose Evernote in the beginning. Maybe others don't use them, but my job requires storing of information that needs to be categorized by several different criteria, and tags are very useful for this. The way I see it, there are some huge warning signs here: - EN seems to be saying that power users are not that big of a concern to them, and I am a power user (to an extent) - They seem to be saying that key features I use are

  25. Modern software development: forego testers, forego releases, just hire web developers to write agile constantly-updated pages, even for desktop apps. Put everything on a subscription plan, don't let people buy perpetual licenses. Everything is slower, everything is always in flux, all clients are on the latest version the web developer just pushed. It's not just Evernote, all nu-programmers are like this. Anytime you run a newly-updated app and it became much slower and less native-looking, this is what happened. The main appeal of Evernote to me was the great desktop app. Now it's anoth

  26. Completely agree. I like the new checklists (mainly because of the ease of reordering by drag and drop) but if I want a check box at the beginning of a line I should be allowed to have one! It would also be nice to choose whether to strikeout the text. If you are not aware from other posts the workaround is to put a space before the checkbox. So <space>[] inserts a checkbox at the beginning of a line, that doesn't change to a checklist when you hit enter. You will need to add it at the beginning of every line though.

  27. Congratulations Evernote, you are ground breaking, the very first in software history to pass off a sub beta as the finished article (after extensive beta testing, Ha ha ha) to millions of users and then stick with it as if nothing just happened, blaming the “power users” for messing it up for you by recognising the stroke you just pulled. Those horrible 2%er power users. When I say power users what I really mean is people that actually care about the software and know how to use it properly.

  30. Sad story, should be posted at the black board at EN HQ, titled „Think before release“. For anybody who wants to avoid a similar experience: 1) Install legacy (Mac/PC), includes local notebooks https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/360052560314-Install-an-older-version-of-Evernote 2) If thinking about switching: Research before moving ! There are enough apps to choose, and many offer an automatic transfer of your notes. The devil lives in the details: If your target app does not support tags, it can’t import them, etc. So when decided, use a small sample to test

  31. I am glad you have not noticed much difference which is why it may not seem as important to you personally, but it looks like you are an Apple user from your device list and the previous version was different to the windows version in many ways. I am primarily a windows user (I also have a Mac for development purposes so did have the previous EN on that too) and the differences in design and waste of space are huge, as an example the note list in Snippet view on the legacy version shows 11 notes on my screen, v10 in default view only fits 6 on screen! Responsive design does not account for lar

  32. I have ben banging this drum since the preview version took part in, the entire UI is shockingly oversized and there is lots of wasted space and padding added to everything, on top of the ridiculous default 16 font size. There has been no feedback from staff on this whenever raised before. Even the top of the app: Granted some notebook names could be a bit longer but still! I personally use the interface zoomed out two places just to account for the oversized text everywhere.

  33. I agree with you, I was thinking the same. I prefer to have more space for favorits, ... I cannot understand why the EN Team were wasting so much space there.

  34. Is it possible to configure Evernote (ver. 10 above) to start as the System Tray icon only and not open the main window. In earlier versions, it was possible to configure a preference to start Evernote with Windows startup. I could not find this option in the new version. I have created an Evernote shortcut in the Windows 10 Startup folder and can get the program to start with the main window and the System Tray icon, but would like to know if there is any command line parameter to just start the System Tray Icon.

  35. Checking an item in a checklist now changes the font to gray and adds strikethrough formatting to the checklist item. Previously, the formatting did not change. That was my preference. The new behavior makes the checklist feature unusable for my purposes. Would appreciate an option to be able to check an item and have the only visible change be the addition of a checkmark.

  36. The problem is that if you put a checkbox at the beginning of a line and then press enter at the end of the line EN will assume you want a checklist and will convert it! It's not that checkboxes sometimes get a strike through it's that EN thinks that a line which starts with a checkbox should be a checklist. In your "checkboxes" in the screen shot they are a checklist because they have a tick not a cross and I can see the drag handle for the middle checklist box. You can either put a space before the checkbox or press delete to reject the change and then enter again. Either way you won't
