    This can absolutely be done already. There is a bit of setup but it is worth it if the link will be used repeatedly. Step 1: make a shortcut in Windows to the desired search using ENscript. For example, to search for notes tagged as "bookmark" make a windows shortcut with the target "C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\ENScript.exe" showNotes /q tag:bookmarks whenever you run this shortcut, evernote will display just the notes that match the search. (You probably want to make sure in your EN options that "Open note links from other applications in a new window" is unchecked Step 2: Get the full windows path that points to the shortcut. Go to it in file explorer, then Ctrl-Shift-RightClick and "copy as path" Step 3: Use the path obtained in step 2 to create an Evernote link out to the file system the syntax is "file:///pathFromStep2" highlight whatever you want to be the link in your EN Note. use Ctrl-K to insert link notice that you have to take out the quotation marks that windows puts in That does it! Not that bad and it will really allow you to organize!

    I'm not looking for 3rd-party solutions to 'read-only' status. This should be a basic property of ANY Evernote doc. Think about the plethora of legal documentation, etc. that users import into their EverNote apps. Most of these notes are to used as reference, without desire to accidentally alter or remove them. Having to rely of restoration and/or 3rd-party means is an unnecessary hassle. All that is needed is a write on/off (default) toggle somewhere in the menubar.

    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.

    I appreciate your explanation and optimism, but it still won't fix the problem. I'm probably funneling my other complaints about where Evernote has been headed into this one issue.

    Before "shaping the future", how about addressing issues that Evernote paid clients already have, like the Web Clip in Safari. If you pay for a service not provided, are we going to be reimbursed? There were no alerts from Evernote Mac users about this coming. We were taken by surprise but I doubt Apple took you guys by surprise, if so you really have a bad relation or "incompetence" may be the subject. Sorry to share this Web Clip comment for Mac Safari to land here but ShaneD left no room for comments or shares in an absolutist way of communication. Thank you for your time.

    I've got both a Plus and a Premium account and the "Plus" is NOT eligible (that's what it says when I try) for this upgrade discount. I had considered it but if I can't do it I really don't care. The "Plus" is just for testing stuff anyway.

    Yeah, I can't check the code to verify that anymore, but I do remember a fixed list existing... (a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far away, I was doing something in that code...)

    In general, I agree, but I am fighting this right now. I have a set of notes that are sorted by created date, going back many years. Today I edited an entry from yesterday by adding an attachment that made the note too big. I immediately removed the attachment so that the note size is currently maybe 7 MB (containing five paragraphs of text and two photos), but the information says the note size is 406.3 MB and it refuses to sync. I tried duplicating the note, hoping the duplicate would be the correct size, but it also claims to be 406.3 MB and refuses to sync. I copied the contents to a new note and intended to change the create date of the new note to the old note’s creation date (yesterday), only to learn that I cannot change the new note’s creation date to yesterday when using the iPad. Now I am stuck waiting until I am back in the office on Monday so that I can edit the creation date with the MacBook. Right now this seems like a silly restriction.

    I haven't found a satisfactory solution for dynamic ToC notes, so for now I am adding saved searches as note links inside ToC notes (per the recent discussion on that topic).

    I'm working on a MaxQDA file (attached in a note) that is being changed constantly and I get this "attachment updated" notification every other second. A bit annoying. Wonder if I could opt out this for a particular file or in general. Could not find a quick answer via Google. Many thanks.

    Wow. How kewl it would be to be able to use the Shortcut Bar for more than just a few Shortcuts Something like a drop down menu, (like browser bookmark bars), with ability to nest shortcuts, sub menus.

    You can also do this. Pull a Set of Stacked Notebooks onto the ShortCut Bar or Pane Not individual Notes on Shortcuts, but quick organization of a sub-set of Notes

    Now I am afraid, some may not like my upcoming opinions 😟 First, just for reference... my test result notes are text only and maybe 2-3 pages printed in length. Also, I upgraded to Premium the 12th but am rethinking my decision based on my experience so far. Second, please forgive me for my mini-rant coming up because I'm likely to come across as a bigger witch than I really am 😂 Yesterday I contacted chat for help with this issue since I did pay for actual support. Admittedly, I've dealt with many "support" lately and they tap dance all over my last nerve. They make me feel like they don't pay attention and use the same flip-book of all-purpose responses. Unfortunately, EN chat was no better and a complete waste of time 😒 First thing I said was I need help encrypting text notes, but since I copy & pasted the info a table was automatically inserted, and I sent screenshots to help explain the issue. Like an idiot, I assumed a table not being text it went without my having to say it couldn't be encrypted. Then the woman I spoke with said the issue may be due to the "chart" and she needs to "discuss it with her advisor". Immediately Bill Engvall popped in my head saying, "here's your sign" 🙄 During the 7-minutes it took her to get with an advisor to figure out what I thought was obvious, I'd removed the table and typed in the info but it didn't resolve the issue. Confirming for me the issue is related to something in the text formatting but not what specifically. Then I asked if there's a page explaining what text formats can or cannot be encrypted, and was told there's only one help article on the topic. If it wasn't for being support I was chatting with I would've thought she was joking. IMHO, the "how-to" is vague and providing no additional details just naive. Not everyone is going to know some text can't be encrypted, such as bulleted lists, tables etc. When on chat I pointed out my only option is to play around with it until I figure it out myself, and there needs to be further information on this so members don't have to do that. To which I got the typical flip-book response, "I understand and will be sure to pass along that feedback. I agree, there needs to be some additional details.". Sure, you just do that because I'm sure, in all the years this feature has been available, I'm the first to suggest that more than a "how-to" be provided. In a nutshell, it was a waste of 54-minutes since she was more clueless than I was, and this is considered a "Premium" feature 😖 In the end I don't know what in the text formatting caused this issue. On the plus side, I figured out a workaround that's a bit more work now but a lot less headache than having to encrypt and decrypt a section at a time. I decided to see what happened when the information was pasted into a note a section at a time and that did the trick, I was able to encrypt the entire note at once! 🥳I love when technology cooperates for once, and I feel a booty dance coming on...

    I think that may be why you didn't see it. It appears to work properly if you type the full tag name, it just doesn't like the partial. Thank you for helping look in to this though!

    The problem seems to occur on sites that lazy load images. A solution that seems to work reliably in Chrome (I haven't tested other browsers) is to first manually scroll through the entire page and then clip the page into Evernote. This will force the code on the page to load the images, which will be clipped correctly.

    I would love to see an integration or the possibility of Myscript Nebo in Evernote. I think Evernote is a note taking tool. I love to write with apple pencil. I dont want to use other Apps like penultimat. I wish i could open Evernote start a new note and write with pencil as good as myscript nebo it offers.

    I think that it would be better that when you want to use the highlighter it would keep selected until you quit. A way in which I use evernote is to collect articles from the web to read them later. But when I want to read and highlight the process is select a piece of text and then pulse on the highlight button, and then again and again with every piece of text. Wouldn't it be better to push the highlight button at the beginning, so when you select every piece of text it comes highlighted without the need to push the button each time; and when you finish or need another tool you simply deactivated it. And if when you select a piece of text it comes highlighted but at the same time it pops up a little box of highlight colours so you may want to change the last one you had used it would be the best tool.

    True, but it's sort of a different issue from the one in that thread. The "wants to use your confidential information" problem has apparently been fixed with 7.1.1 (or at least it hasn't come back for me). The "EvernoteSpotlight quit unexpectedly" problem has definitely not been fixed.

    So 5 years on since the introduction of the new interface and this is still not fixed!!!!!!!!! Come on evernote team, you have to be kidding me. This is a really important feature that you have taken away. Please put it back.

    Clipping web pages is a great feature, but it's now quite tedious to get back to the original page from within the note. The old interface provided a link to the page at the top of the note (which opened in a new tab), but now it's hidden in the note info. That wouldn't be too bad, but the URL is in a text box, meaning we can't click it to go to the page - it has to be manually copied and pasted into a new tab. Please add a faster way to get from a note to the original page! Steve.

    I used to be able to use the web clipper extension within the mobile chrome browser on my iPad to save PDF documents to my Evernote notebook. It starts to work but it never finishes saving, even after 10 minutes. I’m not a total idiot, so I checked my bandwidth and the speed test shows over 200 Mbps. What else can I try other than using a different browser? I have been having this issue with all PDFs for over two months.

    The font size for all the notebooks and notes in the left panel are too small to comfortably see. The same is the case for items in the note list. I know how to change the font for the content in each individual note but can't figure out how to do it in these other instances. I am running on a HP Windows 10 and have the Evernote Plus subscription. Does anyone have any thoughts? Thank you.

    As far as I know, Google Authenticator is just a normal TOTP generator. So if you select "Google Authentnicator" in evernote, you should be able to scan the QR code with any TOTP app or manually copy the Authenticator Key (string). I myself am using a password manager with 2FA (Bitwarden) and was able to set it up using the option "Google Authenticator" in evernote setup.

    No, it has never been fixed ... Indeed, I'm afraid it is time to leave and look for an alternative. I give them just one more upgrade to fix the issue, if not fixed ...

    Hi All, We are making some changes to the member-leveling system in the discussion forums. Moving forward, we will no longer use the speciality naming conventions, and have moved to a numerical level system. You can find a comparison of the naming changes below. Nomenclature Chart: Old Name: New Name: Guest Guest Member Level 1 Member + Level 2 Noteworthy Level 3 Guru Level 4 Super Guru Level 5 Why are we making these changes? Simplifying the nomenclature to a numerical system will make a user’s contribution more easy to recognize Specialized group names can cause confusion, and often become stale or outdated over time Internally, simplifying the level system makes it easier to manage/update community assets like member-level names, badge updates, etc when newer changes/updates are necessary Member-Level Badge Changes: Along with changes to the naming conventions, you will also see a change to the user badges. You can see the new badges in the table below. Please note, ONLY paid Evernote employees/staff members will have the Evernote Staff badge. Additionally, all former employees will have the Evernote Alumni badge to signify that they were previously employed with Evernote. Guests do not have a badge.

    Found a fix, my problem was as per Dconnect suggested. I recently updated my graphics drivers and followed tips from gaming forums to improve performance etc, I believe I have inadvertently changed DPI settings somewhere, but for the life of me I can't find where. I have a lot of additional font types installed and I run 4 monitors from 1080p to 4k, so scalings can issue for me. How ever all is not lost, I have found how to correct DPI issues that I created in Evernote in Windows 10 with Multi Monitors (Windows 10 version 1809). 1. Locate Evernote's installation directory, mine was in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\" 2. Locate & right click on evernote.exe, select the 'Compatibility' and press 'Change high DPI settings' - see attached picture 3. Under 'Program DPI' tick the check box 'Use this setting to fix scaling problems for this program instead of one in settings' - see attached picture (*Note I haven't played with advance scaling settings yet so there may be a better way) 4. Under 'Use DPI that's set for my main display when', select 'I open this program' in the drop down list. - see attached picture 5. Restart Evernote - (*Note ensure Evernote is not running in the SystemTray) This corrected the issue for me, it may not work for everyone but I hope it points people in the right direction so you can tweak it for your setup. Regards Anthony.

    I have been a Premium user for over 6 years (or maybe 7) , I feel MarkDwon support is the most important feature to support in the future. The Chinese version Evernote is already support MarkDwon, I don't understand why the progress of International Evernote is so slow?

    To have the ability to freeze the table headers - rows (along top) and column (along left margin) like you can in Excel. This would allow to scroll up/down or left or right while still having visibility of the table headers.

    Would be great to be able to adjust the Evernote application font size. That is, the font(s) that are used in the side panels, the list of notes, note cards, snippets, etc. I can make the text I type into notes as big as needed, but I still have to squint at the list view (especially with high-res displays). A global setting in the Preferences / Options would be sufficient, but even better would be some keyboard shortcuts to zoom in or out I'm a Mac user, but I believe this is a missing feature on Windows as well.

    I know this is an old topic but it's the first search result when I was looking for a solution. Accidentally found a way to do this on my own. Go into the notebook you want the special sort order. Click "Always use for Notebook "x" and then change the sort order to anything you want. It will only change it for that notebook. You can do this in multiple different notebooks.

    Have you tried the app with new iPad and Pencil. Writing in these app is very natural without any lags like in notability, noteshelf, ... On the other side the instant transformation of handwriting is incredible. I want to use as few apps as possible. Integrate this well working process of natural writing and transformation direct in Evernote would be a great step forward: Example: Open a new note in meetings, handwriting and after meeting transform this to typed text instant - without using a third party app without syncing or export as pdf.

    It's 2016… I don't think we really need to hear from apologists on this issue. Google Docs is able to implement Indents/Tab just fine. Evernote SHOULD support indent/tabs in the manner of traditional text/word processing. I don't believe this is beyond the means of human ability.

    Yes - please, add sub-folders / categories / etc. I am getting the feeling from reading these threads that the EN people are 'refusing' to add this? Is that really true? Why would a company alienate it's user base by refusing to add a feature that so many have requested? Well, my position is simple, if I find the program a burden to use, and I will if I cannot find a way to organize things the way I am USED to organizing them, then I will simply stop using it - it wont happen right away, however small frustrations will build up over time, and inertia will take its toll. Probably will happen in about - 2 or 3 weeks I imagine. Meanwhile I am looking for a different service - or unless I can get a different feeling from the EN development team. Also - I can add this feature if they dont want to - just give me teh codez.
