    I've only played with it a short time, but using the web beta on my iPad - including a mouse! - works pretty well. The mouse (it works with a trackpad too) makes a big difference in editing text. Things like selecting text are much easier than using your fingers. I'm sure there will be gotchas, but at first glance it is pretty good.

    Sir, You are a GENIUS! Solution: Scanner still has my.personal.scanner@gmail.com account. Scanner sends email to my.personal.scanner2@gmail.com email that I just created. my.personal.scanner2@gmail.com automatically forwards that email to username.xxx@m.evernote.com address. 💪 Previous: Scanner has my.personal.scanner@gmail.com account. Scanner sends email to username.xxx@m.evernote.com address. 🤬

    Finally figured this one out. In a PDF within a note, click on the header bar (the gray stripe at the top), then on the 3 dots, to get a choice of Download, View as Attachment, and Page-through Preview or Full Preview. For me, View as Attachment is especially welcome. Thanks again for noticing this.

    A quick web search for tool to advise when a web page changes returns this 14 BEST tools for Website Change Detection & Monitoring (2020) and 5 Best Free Tools to Monitor Website Changes (2019). I did not dive any deeper. Maybe you could roll your own for this feature. Not to be a wet blanket, but doubtful this is going to find it onto EN's priority list. FWIW.

    It is the quickest way to create a note with URL meta info and note title automatically filled by EN + have the website link placed as note content, if you don't want to use an external extension like Evernote Web Clipper. Depending on, where you drop it, the linked website note also gets tags assigned automatically. E.g. you could have tag "todo" pre-selected in EN and drop a link right into this note list, which appends "todo" as a tag.

    As a student of Business Economics, it is necessary many times to write on my notes mathematical symbols and equations; it is not available now, however, wouldn't it be a great feature?

    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 all, as promised, I'll share the result of my request (I asked support, they were ok with me quoting them - I shorted it a bit) " Thank you for sending [a video of the problem], it worked and I was able to identify the widget you were mentioning. I consulted my Android development team about this issue and it seems that we are aware and investigating. For the sake of all transparency, it could take some time before we get to fix this issue. To elaborate, since last year, we've been busy working on revamping major components of the app, including the syncing mechanism, our backend infrastructure, our note editor to only name a few - both on desktop and mobile devices. This work has been the highest priority company-wide and has been affecting the priority of other issues. I know it's been a long time since we haven't came out with new functionalities, and I want to thank you for your support, and sticking with Evernote. We are very excited to share very soon what we've been dedicating our efforts to for the last year. If you'd like to know more about what we're up to, I invite you to read the latest blog post of our CEO Ian Small — 2020 Update: Our Progress and the Road Ahead. We also published Behind The Scenes videos to show you what in more details some of our work in-house — I recommend watching the video about our work on the redesign of the mobile app. This will also apply to the note editor in Evernote for iPhone and Android. [...] I made sure to forward all the helpful information you've included in this ticket to the engineering team. [...] Looks like we'll just have to wait. Cheers Alex P.S: Saved searches etc. as a link on the homescreen were provided as a workaround.

    Sorry, you are in for a surprise. Some things work nicely on the iPad, but others don’t. Among those that don’t: - no tag hierarchy - no chance to work on several notes at once (joining, tagging or moving a group of notes in one go, no table of content) - the web clipping function is pretty basic - the pencil support is less advanced than expected Because of the last issue I take handwritten notes with GoodNotes 5, and export them into EN when they can be archived. For heavy lifting (organizing notes etc.) I use my MacBook Pro. This is my experience, based on my workflow. I would appreciate if you share your experience with your new setup.

    Agreed, jump anchors are a quite useful feature; I use them in many of my documents >>Dude, stop making excuses <whine> <whine> No excuses; just solutions There's a feature request posted at the top of the discussion. You're welcome to indicate your support using the vote button at the top left corner of the discussion >>Evernote is a document tool. Evernote is a storage and organization tool for Notes/documents The included note editor is adequate for basic notes There's note links, but no internal jump anchors >>So I move the note to docs and voila. I use Apple Pages. Microsoft Word is also a good solution The document is stored as a note attachment

    I sometimes paste code into a note, but it's not a heavy duty use case for me. It's more often debug dumps, variable/object dumps, stack traces, etc., that sort of thing. Occasionally I'll save code snippets of algorithms. But if I want to work with code, I generally do it in a code editor.

    As per @jefito, this is more in the form of auto-formatting. Also note, this is entry only; the code is converted and stored as enml/html For true markdown, I use an external editor and store the .md file as a note attachment

    You'll have to be more specific about what you mean by "I cant get my tags working." For example, are you adding, removing tags? Trying to filter using tags? Browsing the tag list in the left panel? Browsing the tag panel? Don't make people trying to help you guess... I see this working in the Windows application Make sure you don't mean the web version that runs in your web browser -- you cannot export notes or notebooks from the web browser. You can try getting official Evernote help via https://twitter.com/evernotehelps

    Hi. Sorry but we're mainly users here - plus a few independent but mostly zero Evernote developers. I doubt we can help with anything other than guesses. Try https://dev.evernote.com/ if you haven't already... Evernote uses StackOverflow for developer support now; post developer questions there and tag them with "Evernote". http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/evernote

    For those who have suffered with Evernote reloading the note and/or losing focus on the note when app switching on an iPad or lag when typing in a note… I have an iPad Pro 9.7". After the upgrade to iPadOS 13.4 yesterday, Evernote seems to be working much better with the new OS update. Fingers crossed!

    ...What they said. And we've had the discussion before about what will happen if Evernote just... stops... Well - everyone with a desktop app has a complete local copy of their database, and can (probably) use the file as an import source for other apps; speaking of which Evernote's small-nation size customer base will be a prime target for every surviving competitor out there (like it is now!). If there's a way to populate a new app with Evernote data, they'll offer it. our experience with software company crashes has been (thankfully) minimal, but there are usually sunsetting arrangements with a favoured beneficiary to hand user data on if the users wish and permit it. And for the reasons mentioned above I'd imagine Evernote could operate pretty handily on a wfh basis - that won't be an issue. NEO Asteroids now, that could be a problem...

    Android 7.1.1 Evernote v 8.1.0 re: insert horizontal line function Along with the issue of taking a minute or more for notes to display for viewing or editing, I have now discovered that this editing function in the Android app no longer works as it once did. It used to always insert the horizontal line at the blinking cursor. Now is always places it at the bottom of the note. Works fine in the desktop Windows app. Another negative for EN ver 8.1.0 This is a key editing function for me as I use the horizontal line extensively to break up a note into smaller sub-sections, usually with a date stamp in them. When I'm researching an issue and adding updates as I resolve the problem or a product progresses from beta mode to final form I keep all the updates in one note on the issue/product. Ditto when using EN for client management and keeping track of interactions. BTW... that is another function Evernote should have on that menu bar - a date insertion tool preferably in the form factor of yyyy-mm-dd-hhmmss. I currently use a work around app but it is clumsy. Makes it easy to search for all notes or note updates from a specific day or month where you have time stamped your note. .

    I now have mojave on my macbook. Command - shift - 5 is one of their shortcut for their new screenshot feature. I would like to replace my current shortcut for skitch snapshot. I know this is do-able by applying application shortcuts, but it would be nice if it was easier to change. Thank you, Yan

    Keyboard shortcut conflicts with macOS's screenshot. And I can not override it with macOS's app shortcuts . Please add an option to disable skitch's shortcuts or Deploy shortcuts with macOS's menu bar feature.

    Servers are hosted by Google ... And probably employees (especially those who have to focus on their work, like coders) work better at home than in an office cubicle (see „Dilbert“). The WebClipper problem is rooted in the need to support several browsers on several OS-platforms. As browsers evolve, the WebClipper dev has to keep up permanently. This will be an ongoing challenge. Summary: The question posted is among the least worries these days. Stay healthy ! Stay productive ! Care for others !

    Is it a bug that the default font size is now 16 point instead of 10 point, for both new and existing notes? And, if I reduce the font size to 10 points, the line spacing increases so that vertically it saves no space!

    Got a response from EN support. I am able to reproduce this exactly as you've described it. I've gathered all of the very helpful information you provided and passed along to the development team for further review. They'll prioritize and investigate the root cause to determine the best way to correct this issue. While I don't have a time or date on when this would be resolved, do know they are working diligently on a resolution. At this time, I'm marking this ticket as answered while the development team investigates the issue. So time will tell.

    Hi, and welcome to the forums. This is a recurring problem for some users, caused by bad actors stealing your password from a non-Evernote site. See this post in another forum for good advice:

    For example if I want move up a note towards the top of the notebook stack manually. Is this possible?
  33. 1 point
    This sounds like the issue in which wrongdoers have stolen passwords from other sites (not Evernote), and then applied them to Evernote until they find ones that work, so that you have an unknown device logged in to your account. Best practice, I believe, is to immediately change your Evernote password to something unique and strong (https://www.evernote.com/secure/SecuritySettings.action), and then go to your account page and delete the intruding device.

    Hi, I'm new on this forum (and not a native English speaker). After blogging 10 years on Wordpress (a blog with 1000 posts, 5000 comments) , I decide to launch a new blog on postach.io. Here are the reasons why I chosed Postach.io instead of WP (it's in French). I just wanted to say THANK YOU to POSTACHIO Team ! I save so much time by blogging on this platform. Is there a part of this forum dedicated to Postach.io? Best regards. Aurore (start using Evernote in 2014, postachio in Dec 2019)

    2020... and still no hand-writing integration in Evernote... I fear that means that Evernote is struggling to stay afloat and no longer investing in the product. Anyone else feeling that way? (Evernote Premium user Fromm the early years of the platform. Penultimate purchaser before it even got acquired. Apple iPad + Apple Pen happy user for sketching etc. OneNote provided by work and despite the fact I do not love it the way I loved Evernote, at least hand-writing is built-in... I need hand-writing support in Evernote to keep justifying myself the Premium annual fee...) Come on Evernote! You're making it really hard for your hard-core fans to stick around... deliver on the Penultimate promises and give us *real* *integrated* hand-writing support!

    Hi , I think it is would be cool and useful if the Table in evernote could do some basic Calculation like excel , no need so complex like what excel do , but some calculation between cell. This can Help a lot when someone want to sum the value of ingredient for example or many things that need some basic calculation . Well , that is what tables usually used for , isn't it . It would be much help rather than manually calculate the value one by one in the table . Hope you would reconsider this Idea , Thank you .

    +1 from Premium user here too. Agree with most of the above. The two reasons I find it unusable are: 1. Lag / fidelity is horrible. Just use the built-in Samsung Notes to see the difference. 2. Erasing is difficult. There's a button on the stylus that is used by the built-in app. Personally, I'd be fine with using a separate app IFF it integrates directly with Evernote. This means that if I click on the page in evernote it should launch the app to continue editing.

    I'm a heavy user of hyphenated tags. For example, if I were traveling to Portland, I would tag notes using the following tags: portland-food, portland-accommodation, portland-tourism, portland-history, and portland-transportation. It would be convenient (and logical) if hyphens were unnecessary. Instead, I would use five non-hyphenated tags: portland, food, accommodation, tourism, and transportation. In this scenario, if "portland" is entered as a search term and the user clicks on this tag, then other tags that exist in notes with "portland" tags are offered as suggestions: food, accommodation, tourism, history, and transportation. This would be a better way to search than tag:portland tag:food as is the current method. Maybe this is how the new search is designed and I missed it.

    FWIW - 'foo' (or any text) + the line works in Windows desktop too, while just selecting the line and trying anything other than delete does not. Nice.

    I have been an EN user since Beta, and became a Premium user as soon as it was offered. I do not understand why EN is lagging with simple security options, such as easy encryption of notes and notebooks. This really should be as easy as a Right-Click or selection in properties for a Note or Notebook. The existing method of selecting text in a note and then using a Right-Click option to encrypt it is cumbersome at best. Yes, it is a nice feature if one wants to encrypt only a portion of a note. That's fine. But there should be an easy way to (1) encrypt an entire note without selecting text and (2) encrypt an entire notebook. I would be willing to pay a few bucks extra a year for this additional encryption ability. Seems this should be a no-brainier for EN, both as a tech matter and as a business/profit matter.

    In Microsoft Word or any other word processing application it is possible to wrap text around pictures to create a magazine type format in which the picture “flows” seamlessly with the content of the document. Is this being considered for a future version of Evernote? I think it could be one of the biggest UI enhancements to make the application a more personal tool for end users like myself

    Here is hoping the Phil and the Evernote team realize the opportunity to continue to work with schools at a discounted rate. We use it with teachers, students and promoted it to parents. It will be a shame if we have to stop as even though we pay about $1,000.00 a month for just under 500 users, from what I can tell going to Evernote Business will double that making it out of reach as while important to us, it may not be mission critical as we are a Google Apps school as well. Getting users using your services when young has been proven to be a method for building brand loyalty so please do not overlook the opportunity. Carefully consider the long 100 year company plan before eliminating the education discount forever.
