    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.

    I prefer to spend time organizing my notes, not my tags. My tag vocabulary is pretty stable by now anyways, but I do still add new tags on occasion. Even so, some of my tags resist a pure hierarchy anyways, because they can be used in different contexts: there's no single place to put them. In practice, I keep my Windows left panel tag tree closed almost all the time; I just plain don't use them for note navigation. BTW, this also has the benefit of making he lack of tag hierarchy on other platforms irrelevant to me. All the above being said, consistency in presentation would be a good thing for folks who do use them for navigation. Guess we know who the coffee hound is around here...

    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...

    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.

    Thx @gazumped - tried those as well. The saved search nor the tagging didn't work quite for me. However, I actually figured following solution for me: Created "Current Items" notebook In there created separate notes eg. "Working items", "Hobby items" etc. Each note (= category) then consists of titles which are actually Evernote internal links. Ta-daa! I can even then have separate titles for those (compared to as the saved note-title in Evernote). Suits perfect for now!

    Hi Evernote, Please fix the formatting on the bullet points. They've been broken since I started using Evernote and it is the single most significant reason I don't use Evernote more often. I actually would stop using it, but I need something with the searchability and offline mode for my comprehensive exams. My most recent problem: - I was trying the new editor and changed the font of one of my notes. - A new line was added in between every single one of my bullet points that I then had to delete manually - I then decided I didn't like the new editor because support for combining Unicode characters I need was limited and the UI was not easy to transition to immediately. - I went back to the old editor and found my note using a font I didn't like and that looks nothing like the font I chose in the new editor. I selected all and switched to a different font. - Every. Single. Bullet. Indentation. Disappeared. I just lost about an hour's worth of work just to reformat a note that I shouldn't need to revisit when I don't have the time to be dealing with this nonsense. This is not acceptable. Other problems I've had: - Bullet points are constantly disappearing when I try to reformat the indentation in the middle of what has previously been written. - Copy-pasting to other platforms isn't reliable because Evernote's formatting code is so unreliable that the other platforms produce complete nonsense with respect to the indentation. Unrelated problems I've had: - Why do I have to submit a bug report on a forum that is—I don't care what is "officially" promised—only moderately monitored at best? It's completely inconsiderate of the user base you have that you can only directly email support if you're paying for the site. I want to like Evernote, I really do, but I'm starting to have the same problem with it that I had with Memrise: it looks shiny and should be really great, but the programmers are more interested in building new shiny things they like than in creating a reliable product that meets the needs of the users. I'll probably stop using Evernote soon, unless I see any indication that it becomes an even remotely functional word processor. There are too many other platforms that do what I need from Evernote.

    Shortest response to all speculation above: we have been investing for the last several months in replacing the plumbing in client apps, including in the modern web experience. When we are done (we aren't, yet) this will mean a common codebase shared across all the clients for cloud-client functionality such as sync, which should help us both isolate and stamp out bugs as well as driving more consistent behaviour across any user's Evernote experience that spans multiple devices. None of the previews put out to date incorporate any of this work, which is foundational to implementing the local data store for desktop and mobile clients that we all know and love. We plan to shoot a Behind the Scenes video that talks about the new plumbing, but the architect we need for that is ... ahem ... busy right now, or else you would have seen it before this one! Side by side installations on desktop machines of the beta and of a current production release will have distinct local data stores; you will be able to use both at the same time (I do that, right now).

    There's already been feedback about separating a note's tags from its notebook. Just seems as though your main organizing concepts ought to be located near each other.

    I use saved searches. My current task list is generated by reminderOrder:* -reminderTime:day+1 -reminderDoneTime:* (All reminders, Exclude future dates, Exclude completed) >>Currently when a note as a reminder is shows at the top of the client...and the reminder pins it to the top of my notes list That's a Windows thing; a reminder section at the top of the note list

    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

    For me, "basic notes" is note-taking; anything more elaborate than "basic" is no longer a note but a document (given that "basic" can include bold/italics/underline, highlighting, lists, and more).

    I'm curious it is possible to instead of taking photos/scans, but leverage an existing photo in the camera roll as an input to Scannable to leverage it's scale/reshape tools. The application: I attend trade shows and find the presented powerpoints useful. The actual presentation materials are not physically shared with the audience, just projected. Sitting in the audience I take the photo and have a number of slides in my camera roll. The majority of these are trapezodial and would love to leverage scannable to reform the image like it would normally. Then take several of these images to produce an output PDF. Please let me know if this is possible. (or if anyone knows of a good app to take a set of photos of presented slides to reform and make a PDF.) Then I would love to save the OCR'd PDF to Evernote. Thanks, Daren

    @Z.Rot - with an Android app you can do whatever you would like to do with links... except add them to a word or a sentence as a hidden link. Just a missing function - for the moment - of the Android editor.

    Not sure anyone is asking as much for N:N on notes and notebooks. That request appears some in the forums but is a different topic, my view anyway. This is more about a File Explorer notebook structure. Mox nix to me but I would be happy for others if this mod was deployed. Very early on in my 10 years with EN I became quite comfortable with tags, lucky me I suppose.

    We were (pretty sure I'm allowed to say this...) actually looking to consolidate that in a common C++ core library. That work was put on permanent hold (at least it was when I left) in favor of the new version the CEO has been referring to.

    Thanks guys, I made it. Turns out I was being dumb: I had relocated the local files, including the database, to a secondary partition, which is mounted on a HDD. My OS runs inside a SSD, but because of short storage, I moved the Evernote DB to the HDD. Stupid move, given that the DB is still small compared to the free space. :)

    The paid service you are using has a specific limit on note size. Perhaps picking a paid service that satisfies your needs would be appropriate. Or add your vote to the 22 above and compromise in the meantime and build your own solution.

    If you OCR your PDFs yourself they will be searchable in EN independent of subscription level. Office documents for sure and I think images require a Premium subscription.

    Funny that. At a previous job, I had been there a couple of years, and was reading the comments on someone else's checkin, and they noted it was their birthday, which was the same as mine! Turned out it was also the same year as well, though we never figured out who was actually older. I know that the probability of two people in a room of 25 or so is about 50% (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birthday_problem), but with the same birth year as well, in a company of ~200? Seems like that's a lot less probably. We also had a colleague with a Feb 29th birthday. too.

    While it's a play on my real name, I picked it very much because of that. I'm a programmer - I kill bugs dead! That he was! Great guy too... (and we actually have the same birthday! We had to do some serious time-zone math to figure out who was actually older - me by a couple hours)

    A big thanks to all of you who watched this video and have taken the time to give us your feedback – I've personally read every comment (and so has Ian). One big improvement we've made since the video, is deciding to actually show tags on the top of the note itself. We plan to show 1-2 tags to the right of the breadcrumb, so you don't have to tap on the tag icon to see them. If you don't have any tags on the note, it shouldn't take up any extra space. Hi @jefito I should clarify about nested tags on Android – currently Personal accounts can view nested tags, but Business users cannot, explaining why users are reporting different experiences. For Personal account users who have nested tags today, we hope seeing the nested tree structure you have on desktop will give you better context when viewing/managing your tags. Good news @lisec! We plan to allow filtering by tags (and notebooks) in our mobile search! In fact, when you select a tag and view a notelist associated with that tag, you can search within that list or apply more filters. @Kruger2147 You'll also be able apply multiple tags – simply start typing a tag and in the search field and we'll auto-suggest tags for you to add as filters. Don't worry, @gustavgi the "Unassign tags from all notes" feature will definitely have a confirmation dialog! This is actually a desktop feature we're bringing to mobile. Your question about tags with long names that are many levels deep is a good one. At some point, if you are 5 levels deep and have a long tag name, it will be cut off with an ellipses. That said, the designs do work well to accommodate any nested tags which are 3-5 levels deep, which is to our knowledge the majority of our use cases. So we can be better informed – I'd like to ask people on average how many levels of nested tags do you have? And how long are the titles? 💚Thanks again for being such loyal and active Evernote users. p.s. @gazumped Ian still owes me that drink...

    Interesting to see styles mentioned, and the auto-outline potential Also improved list editing like drag and drop. It's not a hot item for me but I know this has been an outstanding user request. Currently my notes are short and concise, with word processing file attachments. With enhansed editing I see the potential for moving content into note format. Thanks Ian and Sasha. I'm enjoying the videos.

    Hi! It`s not so critical in cases of making misprints in languages and we make them everywhere. Evernote service is not the exception. I truly strive to help you guys to provide the leading products of today. Here`s a little notice. Attached you will find a picture with a misprint in Russian, where the letter "м" should be "т" ("будет"). As a corrector in languages and a trainer, I must say that you need to change some Russian texts in parts because it looks lapidary, clumsy or even without translation.

    @ballard there were a couple issues going on. The first is that Geeknote doesn't comply with our API license, which requires the developer to protect their consumer secrets. Geeknote is a standalone app, so the secret is in the source code (config.py). To properly protect it, the developer needs to remove it from the source code and set up a web service to authenticate users. In situations where someone is using an app to abuse our service, we work with the developer to stop new logins on their infrastructure. With Geeknote, we can't do that because there is no infrastructure. We also couldn't reach the original developer that registered the API key. There is a path forward. For standalone apps like Geeknote, we support a downloadable personal authentication token called a developer token (http://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/dev_tokens.php). With some app modifications, you can use this personal developer token to authenticate Geeknote to your account. We've had abuse issues with dev tokens in the past, so we whitelist who can use them. Before we revoked Geeknote from our service, we enabled dev token downloads for everyone that had been using Geeknote. Jeff Kowalski, the maintainer of the forked version, has reached out to us and we are working with him on a path forward to get Geeknote working again.

    Hi, I'm wondering why Evernote doesn't have native support for flowcharts (like Lucidchart, MindNode, Visio, etc). I often find myself wanting to make some sort of diagram with blocks, arrows, lines, etc but I can't do it in Evernote without using a different service. Does anyone know if something like this is coming? As a paid customer and avid user of Evernote, it seems like the feature list for Evernote hasn't moved beyond basic notes, lists, and tables (without a full implementation to include iOS). I would love to have other note types beyond simple text, lists, and tables. Thanks!

    Ok let me refrase that. i would like to be able to append to a note on iOS through the share sheet (pages, links, photos, anything that can be shared).

    There are work-arounds, for example, you can first hit space or enter, and then go back using the arrow keys to type the emoticon, and then go back forth with the arrow keys to continue typing. It's a pain, however. This is a relatively new function, and it's one I can't imagine most people would appreciate, so I am of the opinion that there needs to be a way to turn it off.

    I can fix mine by pinning to task bar when Evernote is actually running. Pin the active icon (with the blue bar on the left) and remove the inactive one. Next time you open Evernote, it'll be just one icon on the task bar

    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/
