    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, ....

    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

    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.

    When I drag bigger files (e.g. videos) from one File Explorer Windows to another and there is an Evernote window in the background or in between, an Evernote popup window appears that I'm not allowed to add such big attachments to a note. Note: I do NOT want to add these files to the note. I just want to drag them somewhere else but it happened that I moved over the Evernote window with a visible note in the background. I'm on a basic account* so it says the limit is 25 MB for attachments. It says I should upgrade to a plan with 200 MB attachmets for notes. I don't know if something similar happens with paid accounts. But bigger files can easily exceed also 200 MB. *) I would consider a payed plan to use it on more devices. But I still miss some features like shortcut customization (don't need the global ones); editor became better over time, but still some struggles; easy way to select notebook of current note to add new note there.

    Anything is doable I suppose, some random generator to pick a note and then hope it is one that you care about? IAC, I use an alternate method of sorts, not as generic as what you propose. I use three tags - !!Weekly, !!Monthly, and !!Quarterly. I add the tags to notes I want to review at the period defined. Sometimes I'm happy to see the note again, sometimes it is a bust and I remove the tag. It's kind of a reload a concept process for me. I have a note for each tag with a reminder which I reset after the periodic review. I do have to have some forethought to add the tag to a note. Does not help if I just want to pull something out of the pile though. 🤷‍♂️

    Hi. It's not an Evernote process, but you can check Firefox help to export your bookmarks to an HTML file, then open that file in Evernote and use Clipper normally to clip the page. All your bookmarks in one searchable note.

    Hi all, I've updated FF to 78.0.2 but I continue to have the issue so I did some additional investigations The problem seems related to the cache, with the firefox developer toolbar enable it worked because it had set the 'disable cache' option, if I turn off that settings it doesn't work, with a fast check of the http requests the problem seems related to an ajax POST to https://www.evernote.com/Login.action, with the cache disabled the request has the headers { "name": "Pragma", "value": "no-cache" }, { "name": "Cache-Control", "value": "no-cache" } and all works smoothly (response 200 OK), without those headers the response it's the error 418 (I don't ever know it exists ) so it seems a race condition that generates a bug on the evernote server

    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!

    If you need to get rid of some space used by EN, here some tips: Empty the trash. It is not counted in most counts, but is still taking up space in the data base. Hint: When you empty the trash, all content will be permanently deleted. Don't use EN to organize stuff that is better organized by other apps. Examples are media files of all types: Pictures, video, music. Reflect on whether you really need all stuff like pdfs in full resolution. Most is completely readable with medium res as well. If you need to set up sort of an archive, open a second EN user. Put it to Premium for a short time, move everything you want to archive to this user (10GB allowance per month), then fall back to Basic with this user. Only use the web client to access these notes in the future, or share them selectively to the Premium account when needing them.

    I've said this before. In the times when every cloud provider has indexed search and image OCR, and there's plenty of standalone apps like DocFetcher for those concerned with privacy, using a dedicated, proprietary wrapper for your data (be it Evernote, Onenote, Joplin etc.) does not make sense… at least to me. 90% of my data is in file folders on Onedrive (only using it because I am paying for Office365). 5% of the data I consider sensitive is in an encrypted volume with its own encrypted search index. The remaining 5% are short-term notes - and here's where programs like Evernote or Onenote come in handy. With generous use of plaintext tags, and common file formats (docx, xlsx, pdf) I can get most of functionality of Evernote (some is missing, some is gained) without ever having to worry about losing access, losing service, moving to another service, backups, sharing with others, encryption, compatibility, etc. Evernote / Onenote / whatever are great for capturing data and maintaining "live" notes, but for long term storage, it is exported into an indexed online folder as a common file type.

    Hi. The installed app is not connected to Scannable - better to reinstall the Scannable app. Don't know whether that would work. If not, and you don't have any history stored in the app, you could also try creating a new Scannable account...if that's possible: I'm not an iPhone or a Scannable user!

    Seems like sometimes waiting does pay off. Thank you for allowing me to save directly to the camera roll again in Scannable. 😃 I love the app but never understood why you forced me to save to Evernote first, then allow saving to camera roll - sometimes I just wanted to save and email and not have it in Evernote. Thanks for restoring the original functionality - much appreciated!

    That's a known problem with note links As you discovered, the links are coded with the note-id of the original note evernote:///view/1156250/s10/ee54e6a3-dd90-4b0f-8196-72b0b6868776/ee54e6a3-dd90-4b0f-8196-72b0b6868776/ but the note-id gets lost when copying/merging/importing I make a practice of appendIng the note-id to note contents. Id: [ee54e6a3-dd90-4b0f-8196-72b0b6868776] This allows me to use text search to resolve broken links

    Consider this; don't use a single list. I keep a notebook call purchases. In it is a note for each item I am considering purchasing. I will compare websites for an item and where I could get the best deal. I'll put links to the item in the note. I also use the tags to tag the store where I would purchase them. Or I may just clip the page and put it in that note so I know the store sku number and maybe the aisle its in. If I am in the area of a store, I search for that tag to see if there was something I wanted to purchase there. Consequently, I also have a shortcut on my phone that allows me to quickly add an item to that notebook of something that I need to purchase later or research for purchase. (Really useful since I have a child headed to college) Otherwise, you could look at any EN or non-EN shopping list and replicate it in EN easily.

    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

    I love the 'Save as Template' option for notes that I have to repeatedly create. While I've found it to be a bit frustrating that you cannot edit a template once it's created, I've recently discovered another issue. Apparently there is a limit of 20 templates that we can create? What is the reason for the limit here? I'm sure there are others who regularly use more than 20 templates. I understand that I can have an entire notebook for templates (I already have that for ones that I don't use on a weekly basis). Thanks!

    Well not much point sorting out the underlying infrastructure if there are no customers left. The iOS app is just not fit for purpose in respect of note taking so my guess is that the majority of people use the iOS app to just retrieve notes. Otherwise their iOS customers would have left a long time ago.

    Dear Evernote team, I would like to submit a feature request. Could you please add a fullscreen display of notes in iOS (without the top bar and the bottom bar)? We loose so much space with those bars, if we could for instance double-tap to go fullscreen, then double-tap again to display the top and bottom bar, that would be great. That is especially important in portrait mode because we don't see much of the note because of the bars. Could you please forward my request to your marketing/development team? Regards Yoan

    I don't think Evernote has any interest in our comments on the beta. Unless I've missed something, they haven't even provided a real forum to collect beta user's input. I've uninstalled it for now since in the current format it's really a step backward.

    On the Mac App, the Font Size 16 is not available. I can only choose 14 or 18, but not 16 as I can in the Webapp. This causes issues when displaying Text in the Mac App that was created with the Webapp. Text with Font Size 16 is then displayed as Size 14. Anyone else have this problem? Is there a Fix?

    Just got Evernote, running on iOS 12 on a 2018 iPad (9.7"). Is there a way to make notes actually full screen? Is there some use of the blank space I highlighted in yellow that I can't figure out? It's annoying to have to slightly scroll horizontally when there's seemingly unused space. EDIT so pinch to zoom works but is there any way to make the note fit the window?

    I was just going to chime in to stress the importance of this feature - especially with the upcoming features on iOS 13/iPadOS - so eloquently discussed in the quote above. The iPad is now (in beta - will be officially in September with the final release to the public) a desktop class piece of tech. And it desperately needs some of the desktop features over on iOS. I’m about to face a difficult decision. See, I’ve been using the iPad Pro as my only device now for 6 months. And, simultaneously, I’m trying to go “all in” with Evernote as my everything “online vault” for going completely paperless - including all my important scanned documents. But, without a few key features like merging notes, moving attachments from one note to another, etc, Evernote just isn’t usable on iOS as a primary note app/vault. This is a critical feature. Case in point, I use a Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 to scan directly to Evernote. I use their cloud scan feature so that I don’t have to use a desktop computer at all. The setup does a great job of scanning and applying OCR to the files then sending them to EN. However, they do 1 receipt/note or 1 doc/note. Sometimes, one needs to merge all of those receipts into a single note for simplicity and organization. But this isn’t currently possible on iOS. So, unless Evernote rectifies this, I find myself with a difficult decision: Do I keep a laptop around that I’m otherwise not using at all, simply to be able to organize Evernote notes for features that are missing in iOS, or do I look elsewhere for an online vault that will actually have feature parity between the versions? I’m about to put in a massive amount of work scanning in years and years of paper documents into Evernote but it makes it a much less enticing project with major features like this missing. And, it’s been requested since 2011 - for EIGHT YEARS! With all the growth that EN has experienced and with iPad/iPhone adoption skyrocketing over that time, this vital feature has not been added in all that time. Is this something that will, perhaps, be available with the advent of two instances of the same app open side by side on the iPad? Maybe drag and drop onto a note to merge? Without EN having to actually implement the feature? Surely, the Evernote team sees the frustration of not having almost any real features added in the last several years. I know you’re working on the stability of the product now, and I’ve watched the videos on that. It’s vital to do that. But, to be honest, that should have been in place the last few years. I know the team knows that and they’re trying to rectify that. But after innovating so much initially, there has been almost complete stagnation for new features (or existing features from desktop apps included in iOS/iPadOS) - save for a much hyped new logo that was apparently agonized over by those in the company. I’m honestly not trying to be a jerk saying these things. But as Premium/Pro paying customers, we’re just desperate to have everything work as it should. We shouldn’t have a lesser experience on Evernote because we choose to use an iPad. In fact, part of why I switched over to iPhone/iPad was because Evernote was so darn slow at adding features to their Android apps vs the EN apps on Apple products. And now, that’s not continued. Please, bring this feature (and moving attachments to another note) to iOS/iPadOS. Please! And some of the doc preview/PDF preview that is available in the desktop software. Basically, we desperately need more feature parity between iOS/iPadOS and the desktop products.

    I agree... I know there are some software message boards that will not allow posters to mention the name of competitive products & will edit your post, if you do. (Coffeecup software is one.) Evernote has never done this - they have always allowed other products to be mentioned. However, discussing the finer points of migrating away from the service is quite different from simply mentioning other products or discussing the reasons one is leaving Evernote.
