    Not sure what this means. The Evernote for Windows screen clipper can be configured to use a different format by editing the string value "ScreenClipperFileName" string value in the registry at Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Evernote\Evernote\TrayApplet. Default is "ScreenClip.png", but you can change it to "ScreenClip.jpg" to save in JPG, and other formats may be possible: ".tif" and ".bmp" also appear to work. The keyboard shortcut used to invoke the screen clipper can be configured off the Evernote taskbar notification icon's right-click menu using Options / Configure SHortcut Keys... or from the main Evernote application: Tools / Options / Clipping. Beyond that, this doesn't solve the OP's request. Obviously, Evernote for Windows has the ability to create images in various formats, and given that they can obviously read and display other formats (and having implemented similar functionality myself), it probably wouldn't be a stretch for them, technically speaking, to provide a Save As for various formats (it really seems that this would be a "Convert To..." operation, to convert a note image in place, rather than saving it to disk, but whatever). So it all then comes down to a prioritization issue, per usual. Evernote is not an image editor, and relies on external applications to do that, which is an entirely valid approach. Having never seen a request like this before and given, I'd guess that this wouldn't be terribly important for most users, and therefore a nice-to-have, lower priority item, but that's purely a guess on my part.

    The previous doesn't seem to be any way justified -- or even connected to -- by the statement that followed it: I'll grant that an an inducement to get an understanding of how to use Evernote and then to pay them, Evernote does get value in terms of future revenues. But that's about it. So how, exactly what value does Evernote get from long-term free users? Servers and companies don't run on fairy dust; it costs money, which free users don't provide. You get them to stop asking you to pay by, um, paying. Duh. And calling them naughty names drops you way down in the credibility column. Be serious: you were in no way going to start paying for the service.. Just to be clear -- I have a second free account to go along with my premium account, and their attempts to get me to upgrade are not any bit irritating at all. Maybe I understand that businesses that don't make money don't survive? The price you pay for not paying is the occasional request that you upgrade. Otherwise, Evernote Basic is free (as in free beer) to use. Use it, or do not. Just don't whine about it.

    Also did you try simplify formatting before you tried removing formatting? Capturing a web page via the browser extension (Web Clipper) lets you experiment with the options for Article, Simplified Article, or Full Page. The clipper works great in 90% of cases. In the worst case, I have to do a Full Page clip. The result looks good on the Win client but can sometimes be hard to read on the Evernote phone app (probably because Full Page captures formatting that isn't meant for phones or small tablets. But, that problem is rare. I never have to remove white-space after using EN's Web Clipper browser extension. The clipper even lets you clip just the selected part of a Web page, although I haven't used that much. Maybe this is what you want, instead of using the browser's select -> copy -> paste in to EN? When I say works great, bear in mind that I don't think I've ever tried printing the EN note that I clipped. But it should work. Worse case, EN saves a link to the original page so you can go back there and see if there's a print-friendly version of the page. Then print that, or, capture that and print later. There's no perfect solution because Web pages vary so much in how they're formatted. In spite of that, the Web Clipper is one of the things EN does REALLY well so get to know it if you haven't already. Hope this helps.

    @Happy Chap @DTLow @s2sailor @jefito @nigebj Thanks for the discussion re. negative syntax logic. Im happy to share that we just completed an update and the new search now accommodates a range of negative syntax including notebooks, tags, and words. Just place the negative in front of the term like so "-notebook:pet" and of course if you want to combine syntax that would work as well. For example, "tag:pet -notebook:dog -gray" will find all notes with the tag "pets" except in the notebook "dog" and except with the word "gray". Please let me know how this works out for you guys.

    Hmmn. Looked at a couple of options, but there doesn't seem to be a way to actually delete notebooks in bulk. Might be a good reason for this in terms of data protection - it might be possible to delete your whole account in one accidental swoop otherwise... or it might be a question of resources; deleting multiple notebooks would mean at least checking for any linked assets and moving those to safety. Anyhoo - best suggestion so's not to be annoyed by the extra entries - add your notebooks to a 'trash' Stack and ignore them.

    Good to clear this up, thanks for that. Though the above would have been helpful back in, what was it, 2016 when the restriction was added. Advice was dispensed in the forums back then re just sign off and on to whatever devices were used by a basic account. It was not clear then that the intent was two quasi specific devices. No horse in the race as a premium subscriber since forever plus this change makes all the sense in the world to me, just seems a bit disingenuous from a communications basis. Not you @Shane D., EN.

    Sync is always on with WiFi. Go to settings and un-check Synchronize on WiFi only to enable sync on cellular.. You can drag down on the note list or go to Setting on the iPhone to force a sync.

    If you just need the brute information only, you can also clip as a pdf. Preferably from the reader mode of the page, this creates a very lean and clean copy of the content. EN will OCR it for you, so you can search full text in it. But links will not work, as well active content will be turned to static display. Slide shows will not display, or will only show the first picture. If you clip using full web clipper, see the answer from DTLow. If the page disappears, you have your copy of it in EN. But because often other content will disappear as well, links will maybe stop to work. Their content is not copied. So think what you will really need, and make sure you get what you need. Maybe this means to copy more than one page by following links to other pages, and clip them too. If you need to grab a whole website with all stuff, there are other tools available that can do this for you in an automatic manner. Just remember that this may be a copyright infringement before you hit the button.

    Bonjour, et bienvenue sur les forums. Hélas, quel problème! But if I want to say anything useful I must do it in English. And honestly, I'm not sure what that might be. At some point you have to be able to log in to Evernote. The support at https://help.evernote.com/hc/requests/new is mainly for Premium subscribers, but for such a drastic situation as this, there may be options for Basic subscribers as well. You can also contact Evernote support on Twitter: https://twitter.com/evernotehelps. Let me tap Evernote employees @Shane D. and @May L on the shoulder to see whether one of them might be able to come to your rescue.

    Hi, and welcome to the forums. I can't actually speak from experience, since I've only used Windows and Android versions of Evernote (and the Web client). But if you're working fine in both Android and Windows, you shouldn't have any difficulties using iOS as well, beyond the likelihood that the interface and editor will function a bit differently. I'm sure others here can tell you from experience that it works. Basically, the devices don't have to "get along" with each other at all. Each of them independently syncs your notes to the Evernote servers, where the master copies exist. The app on each device knows how to do that sync and interpret and display the data within its own operating environment. You can do some formatting on some devices that you can't do on others; but in my experience, the formatting displays more or less correctly even on devices where it can't be created. E.g., in the Windows program, as you know, you can change the typeface, size, and color of text, and these show up on Android, even though you can't make those changes there. I'd expect similar phenomena adding an iPad to the mix.

    Hi, and welcome to the forums. No, as long as you have synced your notes you will not lose them. Basic vs. Premium is not an issue in this regard. Evernote regularly syncs your notes to its servers, so you can, if you ever need to, access them on another device, and have them safely backed up there. Before formatting the PC, first make sure that if you have any "Local Notebooks" (which exist only on your laptop, not on Evernote's servers), you temporarily copy their content into regular, synced notebooks. Then do a manual sync (F9, click the sync button, or Tools > Sync). Personally, I'd do 2 or 3 just to be sure I did 1. This will synchronize your notes to Evernote's servers, and after the reformat when you reinstall Evernote and log in (be sure you know your username and password before the reformat!), it will download all your notes. If you want to be sure everything's OK before you reformat, after you have done the sync go to https://www.evernote.com/client/web and log in. That will take you to the Evernote Web client, where you should see all your notebooks and notes in place.

    Hi. AFAIK the only way to make those stamps appear smaller would be to increase the size of the original image, so the stamps are smaller in proportion. There's no way to zoom the icon up or down - it seems to be a fixed size. It should be possible to edit a picture in an external app if you know of one which gives more flexibility on icon sizes, but I'm it looks like this is as detailed as Evernote gets.

    +1 Just moved from Chrome to Firefox and found this problem, which has been around for more than a YEAR! Totally agree that the company has lost its energy in bringing out meaningful updates, while competitors like Notion are showing vibrant improvements. I keep Evernote only has my archive/library now, but it stills manages to fail at clipping PDF files...

    You can also just save the search, then right-click on it and select "Remember View Settings". You can then make it into a shortcut (or not), and the sort order will be preserved.

    Or very simple: As long as you are on a free ride, there is no way to avoid that the billboards along the road just jump into your face. Because it is not EVERNOTE that is pursuing you, it is not the paying users that pay your bill along with their own, it is just you yourself who decides to take a free ride. I do not blame you, I do not blame EN (maybe for a little too forceful marketing, but just maybe), but I think you should abstain from complaining as long as you pay ZERO - everybody who is on ZERO in today’s web pay with their attention or their data (which EN does not do).

    This is a large reason why I avoid using the web client. My structure and daily workflow revolves around my tag hierarchy. Bringing the tag hierarchy into the new web client would be where I would cast my vote for priorities if anyone at Evernote is reading this.

    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 experience the same issue as the OP on an iPhone. It is also a deal breaker for me and might result in my ditching Evernote. With Evernote open and looking at a note, if I switch to a different application then come back to Evernote, Evernote freezes in the note I was reading and reloads the note, reloading the note at the top of the note. This happens regardless of settings and syncing of notes and regardless of whether or not the notes are downloaded onto the iPhone. If I don't find a solution to the issue, I'll discontinue my subscription fees and discontinue using Evernote.

    ... yourself a favor: Get the right glasses ! Let me tell you my story: With age the eye will adapt less to watching things in different distances. So I have gotten myself variofocal glasses. And a stiff neck and strong headache, when working a lot in front of a screen. Why ? Because the area needed for the screen distance is placed low on the glass. To see a sharp image I had to raise my head, which created stress to the neck. Whenever I worked long hours like that, everything stiffend up and gave me all sort of trouble. Little exercises to loosen things up helped, but not for long. Then I got myself new variofocal glasses, just for the screen work. They are not set to „infinite“ on the far end, but to about 3-4 m, and the low end is document viewing distance. When I look at the screen, the head has a natural angle now, and the stiffness and sore is gone. They make good reading glasses, too.

    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!

    Seriously, why doesn't this exist in the Evernote Mac client or the Evernote iOS apps? It's obviously not impossible or undesired by users. Just look at how text styling is implemented in Apple's Notes application for Mac and iOS, for example. The Evernote development efforts seem to be focused on edge use cases while ignoring simple, obvious features that a large number of users have been requesting for years. I really am curious why this doesn't exist for Mac and iOS users.

    Hi is there a way to merge notes without having gigantic headers between each note? I like to save pieces of information while studying into evernote so I can merge them later for review... but when I merge them... it's kind of ridiculous with these gigantic headers taking up most of the space of the new merged note. Please help.

    Well, it's interesting to see how some people are strongly rejecting certain ideas, and defending them/justifying lack of any action by EN as if this will have a negative effect on them personally. Really strange. To support this request I have a simple explanation and if anyone (be it "guru" or just "member") can provide an explanation why this is not reasonable I am really looking forward to response: I want to lock/encrypt/password protect a table and image inserted in a note. I'm listening. Current text encryption can be used for things you use rarely. I mean, decrypting it, adding some text and then again SELECT ALL->encrypt->password.... this is almost "last resort" option. Again, I am not a person that keeps "life-altering" things in EN but sure would like to prevent anyone seeing a list of some table data, or my login passwords to random sites, loan management tracking etc. I mean, notebook or note lock will do the job and it's kinda surprising to see that this topic is open for almost 5 years now and I haven't seen any NO, NOT NOW or MAYBE's from EN officials. Maybe there is but I missed it though....

    Pdfs in Evernote (on Mac and iOS) are pain in the … . I heaviliy wish that it gets improved. „Skitch-Engine“ is outdated. I currently use PDF Expert for annotations. But the drawback is, that I have to send my files back to Evernote – which is also quite time consuming/annoying as there‘s no way to send it back to the same (originating) note. The pencil is a great tool/device for annotaions. Hopefully Evernote will get it done in the very near future.

    I think it's obvious, at this point, that Evernote users want the ability to select the default thumbnail for notes. I agree that it seems ridiculous that this conversation started in 2013 and 4 years later this hasn't been added to the application. As a visual person, the thumbnail helps me quickly find what I'm looking for. For example, when I'm looking for a recipe for pancakes, an image of the video (pertaining to the recipe) of two cooks doesn't help me find what I'm looking for. I need to be able to select the pic of the stack of pancakes. The whole purpose for using Evernote is to be able to organize things so that they are easily found/accessed. I'm confused why this isn't already an option. This seems so simple to implement. Can we get some love on this issue?!

    This is one of my top requests. I think you can determine which image is shown according to the vertical size of the image (& maybe the horizontal size plays in too but the vertical size seems most important). But I hate attaching a huge vertical image just to keep my cover image as the one I want. I wish I could simply designate the image I want used for the cover image. That would be really great. Thanks, Evernote. You're awesome.

    Dear Devs in Evernote. Evernote is the best note taking app out there hands down. But for anybody working in development one big issue is missing markdown support. Nowadays Markdown is: a standard, a convenient, fast and reliable method to write tech docs That's why any developer I know, including myself, is using some additional Markdown editor trying desperately to fit it somehow into Evernote workflow. There is plethora of such tools: Atom iA Writer Bear Writer Byword Day One Markdown Pro Marxico Quiver Ulysses etc. Which means that there are libraries if not the whole ready to plug-in text editors supporting markdown. All the above applications are great for note taking in markdown, writing tech documents, essays or even books. However they don't integrate with Evernote at all (with exception of Atom and Marxico) and they all lack (to a different degree): powerful image support not to mention stellar Evernote OCR advanced Evernote search easiness of sharing notes in Evernote Evernote notebook feature Please put some pressure on the product managers to prioritize this feature. Integrate Markdown editor into Evernote to make great product even better.

    Evernote does have Notebooks; a collection of notes >>Notebooks can have sections and then the sub category under sections is pages Currently, the structure in Evernote is Stacks > Notebooks > Notes also viewed as Tags > Notes with an unlimed hierarchy for tags Personally I like the minimal structure - I use tags, and only a few notebooks Perhaps sectioning would be useful within a note >>I would also like to see different tips (pen, pencil, marker, highlighter, fountain pen), The Evernote editor has a basic feature set. I switch to dedicated apps when I need extended features. My favourite is Notability on my iPad

    A couple of the threads I have been following have recently talked about past/recent changes/releases/upgrades to Evernote. It struck me that it may help the discussion if we had a list of all such changes to refer to. So, I created a prototype of such a list with Google Ddrive. - - - Note. I only added about 20 line items so that one and all can see what I am talking about. I obtained the information from official release notes that I received from Evernote. You can see the list at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1kmo6eXR6NQ5SxEqnYQxr8e72tJz6NUKDDYc_SPMhJF4/edit?usp=sharing. It is a Google "Sheets" document. It works much like Excel. Anyone who can see it can also edit it. So, if you think it is worthy of your time and effort, you are welcome to add more lines.

    I love the "create table of contents note" option - I think it is the best way to understand the content of a notebook and navigate that notebook efficiently. I would like to be able to pin a note to the top of the notebook, no matter how the notebook is organized. I would mostly use this to pin "table of contents" notes, but I would use it on other occasions as well. And yes, reminders would technically do it but I think that is a little ugly. For me, that would mean having 36 perpetual reminders, one for each notebook. Way too much clutter for me. I think the "shortcuts" feature could address this as well, but again, there would be 36 shortcuts that I would have to visually sort through. It would be much easier to see just the note I want as I navigate to the appropriate notebook. This seems to be a hot topic, here are other posts requesting this feature, starting with this post: http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/50972-feature-request-pin-notes-to-the-top-of-the-notebook-browser/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/41293-feature-request-pin-notes/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/49215-feature-request-pin-note-to-top/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/34064-request-pin-notes-and-notebooks-to-start/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/23092-request-pin-one-note-on-the-top-always/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/42968-pin-note-to-top/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/33642-sticky-notes-the-ability-to-pin-notes-to-the-top-of-a-list/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/40833-is-it-possible-to-pin-a-note-to-the-top/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/18324-feature-request-pin-notes-favorites/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/30585-feature-request-for-android-client-pin-note-to-notification-bar/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/24278-feature-request-pinned-notes/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/24796-map-view-of-notes/

    Hi All, I wanted to provide an update regarding some changes being made to Evernote's subscription plans. Beginning in early April 2018, we will remove the option to purchase new Plus subscriptions. For current Plus subscribers, nothing will change. Your subscription will continue to renew and you can still expect to see all of the ongoing improvements to Evernote, including note editing and formatting, search, organization, and more. So, why the change? In the three years since it was introduced, Plus has proven to be less popular than we thought it would be. This tells us that we need to find a better solution to meet your needs. We believe gathering customer feedback will help determine what those needs are. In the meantime, we will hold off on selling new Plus subscriptions.

    Well said MomoG, but I fear we're all talking to the wall, Evernote seem particularly unresponsive to customer feedback and have already said it's not a priority. In fact they seem very slow at fixing the bugs never mind introducing new features. For a product supposed to be convenient and let you work the way you want to, it seems to have a lot of inconvenient "like it or lump it" features.
