    It's that time of year where my subscription is close to expiring, and as useful as the app is -- the $90 CAD price tag is a little hard to swallow. I know, $90 to store all your useful data and keep you on track is not a huge burden, but when compared to MS Office that I just spent $80 on with multiple services, it seems a tad high. I have to admit, I've been an EN user for years, but I typically start a new account with one of their "new account" promo codes to avoid paying full price, so that's why it looks like I'm a newb....but I digress. As I looked at alternatives this morning I came across a note in Evernote that I created the last time I was eyeing alternatives. This one specifically was regarding OneNote and it's limitations as I saw them; No single sync button for all notes, annotations that aren't attached to the documents they markup, no great tags, less local storage on iPhone etc. I then considered Bear (which is pretty good), and Apple's own Notes app since I'm paying for iCloud storage anyway. The trouble with both of these is, my work computer is a PC so web clipping is out from that device, and easily getting stuff into either from my Windows computer is a pain. Evernote has clients for all my devices, great tagging, a great web clipper, the best annotation functions, and an easy way to get notes in and out - I'm not locked into it like I would be with Apple's Notes app. So I guess I just came here to say that I think EN is still the best, most functional notes app - at least for my use case. With the changes on the horizon to the editor and to make feature parity more a priority across environments I actually shelled out the full pop for my subscription. Happy Evernoting.

    I feel on the biggest missing features is native support for Markdown. Please add native Markdown to Evernote.

    The video seems to be more about him realising that his rush to judgement is often misjudged than Evernote itself. Rather self indulgent. Also, the backing track made me want to find him and do some damage,

    Dunno, gaz, but hey, Evernote has 200 million accounts and all of a sudden they're ready to R.I.P.? I think if bloggers can help to explain how to use Evernote or whatever better, and how they may differ from other applications, then that's all great. But as prognosticators of tech trends? That's an entirely different skill set. Help me get a toehold on Notion, and that's probably worth my time & attention. Try to predict whether Notion or Evernote will dominate over time? My guess is probably as good as anyone else's, and when people make predictions, that's when I reach for my jar of sea salt and start hunting for the largest grains.The problem with making your living bloggering is that you need to generate constant content, even when there's not much there there...

    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!

    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.

    Exactly. It's the one app where it can do everything I need...and more. When I try the others they have some cool features and do some things maybe even a little better, but there always comes a point where I hit a road block and say "ugh, Evernote does this, I need to go back".

    Hi all, TL;DR - I'm new to the forum, an Enterprise technical support engineer (this means I'm not a noob noob) using Evernote Premium daily for work without issue. That is until I updated yesterday to v7.12 for macOS. Now scrolling through a note fullscreen or windowed mode causes Evernote to spike it's CPU usage to 90-100%. This is making Evernote unusable and I'm trying to study for an AWS certification exam...please help! I'm new to the forum as I've never had a need to post here. However, I'm having an issue today that I didn't have yesterday and the only difference is the Evernote update 7.12. Before I go into the issue further, I'd like to mention a couple things in the hopes I won't get replies with comments like "have you tried rebooting?" or some variation of that. So.. I am an IT professional working for an Enterprise storage company as a technical support engineer. Essentially, I'm not a noob noob and before ever posting to a forum or calling a support line I troubleshoot the issue as far as I can, then I google every possible work combination to find someone with similar issues. However, I've not found one post about v7.12 for macOS with similar behaviour. A few things noteworthy... 1. The particular note I'm using was being used yesterday without issue, only now after the update is it showing this faulty behaviour. (Yes I've rebooted, at which point OSX installed is own update but this didn't fix anything nor did I expect it to). 2. Yes I've tried both full screen and windowed mode, behaviour is the same. 3. No I have not tried to roll back to the previous version yet. Before doing this, I wanted to confirm if others have experienced this issue or not. 4. The particular note I am scrolling through does have screenshots but they are not even close to being large enough to require 98% CPU. I don't think for a second the screenshots are to blame, but admit it's definitely a possibility. In fact after writing the above paragraph I've tested it with a large text only note and I managed to hit 100.7% CPU usage by scrolling up and down quickly. I've never had issues like this with Evernote. 5. Lastly, I use Evernote premium everyday of my life at work to document my investigations. With 4 screens (1x 4k, 2x 1080p, and laptop display) plus 5-6 or more applications open at all times, I've never seen my laptop lagging the way Evernote is when trying to scroll right now. Image 1 - MBP specs and macOS version confirmation (Just to clarify I have enough computing power to scroll through a single note with a few screenshots embedded in it) Image 2 - Screenshot of Activity Monitor and realtime matching CPU usage per core (in a simplified view - gee thanks Apple) Ok so after all that, my simple questions are... 1. Is this a known issue? (can't find any reference to this type of issue for v7.12) 2. Have others experienced or are others experiencing this? 3. If so, have you tried to fix it and if you have, did you have to roll back version? 4. Has anyone tried using 'nice/renice' to lower the priority of Evernote? If so, does it work or just make Evernote less usable? I'm currently trying to study for an AWS certification and this issue is making my core note taking app unusable. I've just wasted an hour or more trying to troubleshoot this issue and I could really use some help please. If rolling back is the answer, I'll do that but don't want to unless it's necessary.

    Hi Folks - We’re making our new Evernote Web experience available for users to try today. What makes it so shiny and new you ask? We’ve spiffed things up to create more consistent design and interactions across web and other platforms. With the ‘Shared with me’ view, you can now easily see all of the notes and notebooks that have, well, been shared with you. We’ve done some work under the hood to improve search results, so things will now be ordered by relevance instead of date updated. Coming soon to a web experience near you: You may be missing reminders and a tags view, but don’t worry; we’re adding functionality to this new world as we go, so some of your favorite features are still to come. Want in? All you have to do is go to ‘Settings’ and click the ‘Use the new web beta’ link. Give it a spin and then send us any feedback you have by using with ‘Feedback’ button. If the changes aren’t your cup of tea, no worries. You can turn back the clock by navigating to ‘Account’ and clicking on ‘Switch to previous version of Evernote’. New Web Experience

    Also found no results for aslia after clipping that page to Evernote, both article and full page. I have run into a similar issue where web copied data contains hidden html text, sometimes I use an html editor to find the match. In a couple of instances the issue was important enough that I deleted all hidden matches. Now I generally paste as plain text whenever possible, to avoid this issue. I suppose it is better to find hidden content, than failing to find content I know is there, though I learned to get around that issue as well.

    A big problem here is that Evernote's note content (ENML) isn't a full equivalent to HTML (https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/enml.php), and its editing capabilities are tailored towards editing only ENML content, and not full HTML. Moreover, in the web clipping process, HTML must be translated to more-or-less equivalent ENML, so it's not going to be an exact replica of the original web page. Anyways, the ability to remove the tables while retaining the cell content is a fair request, and actually something I'd find useful. Upvoted.

    This is the way it has always been. The only app I know of the encrypts the data stored on your Mac is 1Password. The key to Mac security is NOT sharing your Mac login credentials with anyone. Period. In addition, you can have the macOS encrypt everything, so that it is not readable unless you are logged in.

    No easy way to add the same text to a bunch of notes at the same time as best i know. IAC I would recommend using the underscore as opposed to the hash tag since the underscore is searchable the hashtag is not. Out of interest, why is searching for #receipt better than searching for tag:receipt for you or is it more adding the tags on an IOS device? Just wondering.

    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. A new web beta was recently introduced. If you can find the Settings page for your current version (check under your user name, top left), try going back to a previous release.

    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.

    Exactly the same issue with me. Evernote version 8.23 on IOS 12.4. If I use the built-in take photo function to upload something, it fails to actually upload anywhere. It shows it's uploaded in the IOS app temporarily, and shows the thumbnail, but opening it again fails to load the image. I've checked for the image on 2 different installs local installs on windows devices, and the browser. Taking the image and uploaded the photo manually seems to work as a workaround

    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.

    Another +1 from my side. I am an Evernote premium user for many years (it is literally my extended brain, I place there all my notes, daily planing, and anything I want to note down.... I love it). Recently I got a Samsung galaxy tab s3 with s-pen (Android), to further improve my note taking flow and especially to be able to also add handwritten notes directly on my notes. I think more and more people will do this. In my case I want to stop taking notes on paper then take photos and copy them there, etc (go paperless) and get all my notes where they should be - Evernote for me. I am really underwhelmed by the basic handwritten support of evernote... I actually like the simplistic interface. However, it is so basic and writing is not even very responsive for me, which makes the experience of taking notes directly on evernote practically impossible (for me). This really means not being able to use it properly, especially after trying Samsung notes or any other reasonwble note-taking app... So my current workflow is rather fragmented and error-prone: take my handwritten notes on samsung notes, export them as image to a special notebook on evernote (manually) then (when I remember) copy the image to a note where I have some pre-meeting/event notes and points of discussion already.... I tend to forget some of these steps, and even worse, sometimes I revisit handwriten notes and make changes (recapping things, etc) and then need to again go throw all the steps and replace the image... It is not nice... but I really tried to use evernote handwritten notes but they are just too far from the others that I have to go through this painful set of steps... I know there is Penultimate for ios (which is also a product by evernote), but I think the idea of having this feature within the product will make many people happier (instead of using another app, sync the note to evernote as an image...). I think the original message pretty much covers my request for features extensions, I leave bellow some extra remarks (some redundant, sorry): Improve responsiveness (maybe it is just me and one can get use to it, but there is a real delay, which makes it difficult to write...) Pressure sensitive Thin pen, it is really think now (even the thinnest one...) Maybe multiple pen types (I don't care so much, but it is nice to have two or three types) If I can give any other feedback please let me know... As mentioned above, this is becoming a rather popular way of taking notes and it is really a pitty to have these limitations (basic support) on our beloved Evernote. Cheers.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    For anyone who is using Evernote on Mac and worried about the storage it takes up (mine used to be 50 gb or more) it looks like the way the hard drives are handled in the upcoming macOS Catalina helps with it. My application data now shows less than 200mb and all my notes are there and I've added quite a few more than I had when the size was bigger.

    Hi all, We were recently advised by LinkedIn that they are making changes to their infrastructure. Unfortunately, this means that after mid-July, third-party apps like Evernote and Scannable will no longer have any access to LinkedIn data. What does this mean? Any LinkedIn profile information you’ve already added to a note will remain. But you won’t be able to see a LinkedIn user’s details, or connect with them, when you scan a new business card in Evernote. You’ll also lose the ability to add content from your own LinkedIn profile to your Evernote account, or see LinkedIn information using our Context feature. What will happen? Within the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out updates for iOS and Android that will remove the LinkedIn connection. You don’t need to take any specific action other than keeping your app up to date. Mac and Windows updates are currently available. If you haven’t updated your mobile app by mid-July (or if you’re using a desktop app) you’ll still see the option to connect to LinkedIn when you scan a business card, but nothing will happen. Despite these changes, we want to be clear about one thing: business card scanning is not going away. You’ll still be able to: Take a picture of a business card and save it in Evernote Add the person to contacts on your mobile device Email your own info to the person Find the business card later using Evernote’s text recognition feature The LinkedIn integration was an awesome feature and we’re sorry to see it go. But we’re still committed to helping you work smarter and keep your life organized. If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to me directly!
