  1. The ctrl-a shortcut for the OS X app is wrong. It should move to the beginning of the line, not select all. CMD-a should select all. Is there a way to fix this? It's not even listed in the shortcuts menu.

  2. It took just about a year. I was pretty surprised at how bare-bones the new Evernote was when it premiered around this time in 2020. I barely used it for the first half year or so, but I slowly starting managing and viewing notes on the more attractive platform. I still needed Legacy to print things out as PDFs to share with non-Evernote users, but the recently fixed export-as-PDF functionality has taken care of that. (Although: I wish they would give us the option of not exporting the title and URL of clipped notes to the PDF.) And so, this morning, after over 10 years as an Evernote user (my account says I have been a member since 5 September 2011 ... but I have some notes from June of that year, so perhaps 5 September 2011 is my first paid membership date), I deleted Evernote Legacy from Windows 10. I tucked the local database and other files into Dropbox, just in case; but I don't expect ever to have to use them. Not sure why I'm sharing this info. (I can't imagine anyone cares.) But Evernote has been an almost daily part of my life since 2011, and — despite trying several other platforms when Evernote 10 appeared and initially disappointed — I cannot imagine using anything else. I hope everyone else's experience is as satisfactory as is mine, or that it gets there for you shortly.

  3. I've been with Evernote ever since it used a calculator roll display, so likewise long-term and sticking with Legacy unless and until the wrinkles get ironed out of the new version. The problem with Evernote, I think, was that they decided to listen to users - who wanted (amongst many other things) the same experience on all devices in all operating systems including the web; and a standard layout no matter what size display. Sadly that didn't allow for the fact that the UI had to be dumbed down so the worst-featured device could operate as smoothly as all the others - and the fonts available had to be restricted to ones that were available to all displays and all systems. Evernote tried to fit in with that by using a 'wrapper' app that allows it to function on most devices - but no-one in house had any great experience with coding for that type of software. So I'd guess they brought in new hires and temporary staff and tried to reinvent the app from the ground up. Pretty much everything else - slowness, glitches and missing features - flows from that. It'll clear up or it won't. The company is on iteration 22 or so of the version, so they're clearly working very hard to get things up to speed, and have been pretty successful in some areas... Evernote wouldn't be the first of my favourite apps to bring in new services that fundamentally changed the way I use it. I bet it won't be the last.

  4. I have been a premium user for 11 years now. I struggle with every aspect of Evernote now, where as for about the first 9 of these 11 years I was using Evernote multiple times a day and a strong advocate. What has happened? It feels to me like they are not doing focus groups with users to make sure that new features are a)needed b) implemented well and further to that - things that need improving have not changed at all since day 1 (like the basic ability to support varying thumbnail sizes or improving support for stylus (S pen / Apple Pencil) input. I am so disillusioned that after 11 years I want out.

  5. 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.

  6. Excel has more than 400 functions. Can you please post a copy of your answer to Microsoft, listing all Excel functions that were coded into Excel without your consent and desire to use them ? I am sure you get a new Excel, stripped down to the 17 functions that got a thumbs up from you … EN is a package - other users are happy to get additional options without additional cost. If you don’t like the tasks feature, nobody forces you to use it.

  7. I often store screenshots in Evernote. And, I hate how v10 forces me to work with those images if I want to use them in other places (I have to download it then upload it to the other app). I want the ability to copy an image to the clipboard so I can paste it in other apps (it works in Legacy!). I definitely want to be able to paste images in my email client, but ideally, I want to be able to paste them in any app. The current need to download/save the image to my computer then upload it to the app is VERY cumbersome. And, it doesn't honor the OS system preferences I have set up in my Mac (I have all items save to my Downloads folder...but the download of the image from Evernote doesn't honor that...it defaults to on my desktop and I forget to change it before hitting save – annoying!). This would be a huge workflow improvement to v10. Hope to see it soon.

  8. Windows Store can not do external edits because of virtual pathing (it's a Windows security thing). You need to install the direct download version. We are aware of this issue and looking into fixing several bugs related to external editing. Windows Store uses the path C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Packages\Evernote.Evernote_q4d96b2w5wcc2\LocalCache\Roaming\Evernote instead of the regular path at C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Evernote. Always remember to save and exit from the external editor before switching back to Evernote. Try not to continue editing if Evernote is not running. Also don't try to open a recent file from the File menu in your editor (even if Evernote is running). We are looking into protecting from these use cases from any data loss.

  10. Hi, I just went through support (ticket# 3383733) to be confirmed, that Evernote 10 for Android has NO background sync capabilities. Back in the days EN 8.13.3 could be set to a specific sync interval for background syncing so that when you start the app you are good to go with the remote changes already being on your device. In 2021 we have push syncing cloud services. OneNote and Google Keep do real time syncing without even having to start the app. Let's look what missing background syncing means at the moment: - no remote changes on scratchpads are on your mobile when you fire up EN10 on the go (having to wait 20-60 seconds to load then) - no remote set or changed reminders are on your mobile so you are likely to miss your reminders (this happens to me regularly) - no remote changes in your notes contained in offline notebooks are downloaded to your device so you cannot rely on having the latest stuff on the device when being offline later. - when firing up EN for Android I have to wait around 20-60 seconds to have "home"-screen updated completely if EN did not run for some hours on mobile. Support seriously told me, to be sure to have these standards features you have to open the mobile app after every time you did a change on web or desktop. If you collaborate with others you don't know about the changes and are out of luck. I suggest re-adding a background or push sync Android service to EN10 that could ensure this basic syncing stuff by updating the database in the background (as back in EN8.13.3).

  13. Hello! Today we released Evernote for Mac 10.22.3. This release is primarily a bugfix release. It is available now via the Mac App Store and as a direct download version from our website. If you are already running one of these versions, we are progressively rolling out to compatible devices and the new version will be available on all supported operating systems within 7 days. To learn how Evernote delivers app updates, when you’re eligible for an update, and how to update your Evernote app, visit How Evernote delivers app updates to our customers. New to Mac 10.22 The app has improved link recognition in your notes. Now it'll automatically convert web URLs, phone numbers, and email addresses to clickable links; and links can also open local files and default apps like Zoom. Fixed highlights: We fixed a bug where the tasks view wouldn’t load if you’d been assigned a task and then you subsequently lost access to the task’s parent note or notebook. Previously, you couldn't select the first task in your list if it was at the top of a note. But it should be smooth sailing now. We've made some improvements to the keyboard shortcuts menu keyboard navigation. Let us know what you think and we appreciate the continued feedback. We will keep hard at work! Thank you!

  14. Our problem with our beloved German language is that it combines words to a long one, compressing all of the meaning of half of a sentence into a word. "DonauDampfSchiffahrtsDampferKapitänsMützenEmblem" (it would be written with only 1 capital letter, at the beginning, I capitalized all new words contained) means "the badge on the cap of the captain of a ship of the steam boat service on the danube river". EN will only find "Dona.....", none of the other key words.

  16. I can confirm this issue using the following version of Evernote on Mac: 10.21.5-mac-mas-public (458776) Editor: v131.1.16771 Service: v1.39.1 Described in my tweet thread here: https://twitter.com/trutane/status/1438939306639327232 This issue occurs in the main body of a text note, but interestingly, it does not happen in the note's title where ctrl-A works as expected. I've submitted a support ticket for this (#3384041). Hope it is resolved soon!

  17. 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?!

  20. I wanted to ask, if it is possible to STOP closing a note by horizontal swipe, because you CANNOT work with tables inside a note or just scroll down normally, because the horizontal swipe is very sensitive and every time you swipe horizontally inside the note, table, etc. or scrolling down, the note gets closed by this horizontal swipe and it is really annoying when the note is closed every time, but you don't want it... So, I hope you can turn this horizontal swipe feature on and off, so that you can only exit the note by clicking on the back icon in the top left corner (for users who want it turned off like me). Thanks 😊 (A support ticket I submitted recently, I hope more people will take notice of this annoying "problem".... (I already found a few people who find it annoying too). It would actually be fixed quickly by a few lines of code...)

  21. I hope the import option will also allow to keep after import. Almost every note I have comes thru an import folder from Dropbox. I never delete any of them. It is a pretty good pre-backup.

  22. Oooops ! Probably somehow (don’t ask me how) EN was set as new standard app for all of these file types. You can reassign another standard app (like Adobe Acrobat to pdf or Word to doc) to one of the extensions, and see if it returns to its normal look. If it works for one, you can do the same for the others.

  23. Update: We previously indicated that Evernote for Mac was now available as an extension via the right-click / Share menu. This was sent in error. It will appear in a forthcoming build. --------- Hello! Today we released Evernote for Mac 10.23.7. It is available now via the Mac App Store and as a direct download version from our website. If you are already running one of these versions, we are progressively rolling out to compatible devices and the new version will be available on all supported operating systems within 7 days. To learn how Evernote delivers app updates, when you’re eligible for an update, and how to update your Evernote app, visit How Evernote delivers app updates to our customers. New to Mac 10.23 To help you find what you're looking for even quicker, you'll now see a list of suggested filters at the top of the note list after you perform a search or add a filter. We've improved how the app handles hyperlinks in tasks, so you can tap on more links in more places, and do more with them. For example: URLs in task titles, and links in tasks within a note. If you're in the Tasks view, you can now sort your tasks by their due date, so it's easier to see what you need to work on first. We made some improvements to the way the app handles dragging-and-dropping and copying-and-pasting files between apps. Fixed highlights: Open note windows may not have been retained at restart. They should now reappear where you left them after restarting. We made some adjustments to improve note typing performance for some sporadic typing lag reports. On Mac, the 'Learn Spelling' option wouldn't show up if the app couldn't also find an alternate spelling to suggest. This should now be resolved. Occasionally, Chinese or Japanese words would disappear from a note. This now resolved. Miscellaneous editor and calendar bug fixes. Let us know what you think and we appreciate the continued feedback. We will keep hard at work! Thank you!

  25. I can understand and sympathise with that - but having been around for a while, this is far from the first product I've used which has, for a time, seemed essential - but then got overtaken by the market, or by a buy(or sell)-out, and quietly passed away. And there's always been a replacement out there somewhere. Whilst I'd love the universe to run to my convenience and for Evernote to get back to full usability, I apply the Rasczak principle: "I'll use this app until I find something better". It's a fact of life that Evernote primarily has to please its investors, and will do whatever it takes to generate the incomes they expect. If that also pleases the 'old guard' of users, it's a happy accident - but not essential. Evernote has a long experience of big changes causing a furore amongst existing users (we all hate any change to the status quo) and causing some churn. They'll probably wait out the current period of rapid updates and hope that the volume of new users will equal or exceed the value of lost custom. If that proves ineffective, they'll try more new directions. I'm sticking with the pre-Legacy Windows and Android apps for as long as possible, and I'll give them as much time as I can to get v10 up to my standards. As it currently stands, the only major obstacles are: no easy ability to take local backups of the database, and it's too S-L-O-W For everything else there's just work-arounds. Others have different needs and everyone has the same decision to make: can you manage with what's available in Legacy and/ or v10 in the short term? If the answer is 'no', then logically you have to move elsewhere. Supporting Evernote should not be your priority: completing your daily tasks is. If, like me, you can manage with compromises in the short term, then buckle up: Evernote is going to keep on developing, driven by its statistics and income - not by impassioned pleas for text outlining or image editing.

  26. As noted above.... Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.... I have a friend with the ugliest car in the world and he loves it. No one can make everyone happy which is why there are alternatives. As for tags, it's taken me a long while to get used to using them instead of folders and I've been doing both photography and IT work for 30 years....yes, back before there was an internet! I had decades of habits forced on me that I had to break when the digital revolution came to photography and to note-taking. With my IT background I knew intuitively that tags were superior because folders themselves are nothing more than tags on the storage drive. The difference is that with folders, you only get one tag for all the information. Windows and other GUIs simply made those tags appear as folders and showed what they were related to which made sense when you had a one-to-one relationship. The problem is that you end up having to either remember precisely which folder something is "in" or save the same file in multiple places which is a very inefficient way of doing things. Tags lets you get around this. You can tag a single file or in this case "note" with multiple tags. So for instance, suppose you have a lovely picture of your child, her best friend, grandma, a UFO in the background, and you used a fancy new lens to take it. Which folder does that go into? Your storage by date? So if you used a date structure to your folders, you would need to remember the approximate date to get that pic of grandma if she passed away. And you would need to sift through countless photos to find the few pics of her that you have. If you stored it in a folder called Grandma, then you'll have to go through all those folders to find the good pic of your daughter for her wedding reception. Or if she wanted some good pics of her best friend, or even if you wanted to pull together the UFO pics you've taken...In each case you would want to work with them as a group. But how if they're strung out in different folders? Make copies and drop them into yet another folder? So now you have pics by dates, copies of the same pics in a grandma folder, another folder for your daughter with a copy, a UFO folder, and so on? How many copies will you have? How many ways can you break a picture down? Tags solves this. You can tag an individual photo with as many tags as you want. Later if you find yet another reason to tag it, you just add the tag. You want to group all pics of grandma? Just choose the grandma tag and now you have everything with grandma in it. On the drive, it's not any different than the folder structure you're used to but you can have multiple associations instead of just one. Notes have a lot in common with images. They can be anything....including photos. They can represent time, dates, events, recipes, notes, memories, shopping lists, music, literally any and everything. Choosing one specific folder can be extremely difficult and the number of folders could be enormous depending on how detailed you want to get. Or it could be simple. But if simple, tags works for that too. Just re-use the same few tags as you would re-use the same few folders. I really hope this helps. It does take some adjustment....and I'm still not fully adjusted despite knowing darned well that it's a superior method and not any different at the disc level. I think that if they were simply called "multi-folders" from the beginning with folder shapes instead of just being words, I would have transitioned much more easily. One recent development that is quite incredible is a Windows Store app called "Tag Explorer" which takes the Windows "File Explorer" to a whole new level blending the terms and graphical method of representing the data as we have grown used to, but employing tags in the structure instead of traditional 1:1 folder naming. Now if only there was a way to blend that into Evernote!

  28. Google, Part 1: EN is AFAIK since a long time running on servers rented from Google. Not inside of Google, they are separate, but hosted and operated in Google data centers. Maybe this is a reason to prefer Google services when setting up integrations with other clouds - the cord is pretty short to link them up. It is a reason as well for a rock solid, nearly perfect availability of EN servers. Android app: I am not using Android, so only one comment. If you use any Android device, you don’t have to bother about EN privacy. It is practically impossible to un-Google any Android client. It will talk to Google, like it or not. If you now still want to continue running that privacy leaking operating system, here is a link to an Android legacy version: http://evernote.s3.amazonaws.com/android/google-play/com.evernote.google-play.8.13.3.1083330.allArch.6087.apk Clipping: You can get rid of having stuff added to clips by switching off the autofiling feature. It tries to guess what you would do, and does it for you. If you have pretty repetitive clipping tasks, it may work. It didn’t work for me, so I switched it off. Boolean search: What do you want to search ? Use the standard search field plus the filter options, and I don’t know if you really need „Boolean“ any more. Caution: „Need“ is not the same as „Want to have“. Maybe you can post an example for a search here. We then make the „Must have“-check.

  29. I find the OS 'undo' and Note History functions, plus my own local backups more than enough anyway, but if there's no other option, you could always open another notebook and share the 'protected' notes from one to the other as read only.

  30. There's a lot of automation stuff around - see my list earlier. I haven't had chance to start to look at individual apps yet, but if anyone has some suggestions or can rule anything out, I'm definitely in the market too. I have a lot emails going direct to my account, plus random clips and an ongoing tidy-up that kind've rely on notes being tagged, retitled and redirected to the correct notebook as necessary. Filterize is a fundamental part of my workflow! As Filterize are shutting down, maybe we could persuade Evernote that it's a useful service to buy into...

  31. I agree that this feature would be extremely welcome to put it mildly. I just wanted to point out that you can take advantage of the image getting "stuck" to the note even if removed. When I get a note that doesn't use my preferred image (usually because I added it later), I use the following steps to "fix" it. Create a new note. Copy and paste the image that I want for the snippet into the new note. After a few moments, the snippet image loads. Then I just copy the rest of the original note and delete the old one. Sure, it's more work than simply clicking an image and selecting it but I found found it to be worth the effort to get the snippet image that I want.

  32. Updated to the latest version (android, mobile) to quit getting the notification but wish I hadn't. Not only is it buggy when I try to edit (freaks out and starts rapidly scrolling up and down, frequently won't allow me to select text, etc) but a new 'swipe to close' feature has made even trying to just read notes a challenge. I'll be reading a note and accidentally scroll the wrong way and the note will close, forcing me to reopen and scroll back through long documents only to accidentally close it again moments later. What's more is that this function is incompatible with template tables, rendering them unusable. Is there a way I can disable this feature?

  34. I've seen a similar request in the IOS section, not sure if it's the same issue, but it seems like it: Ever since the update I constantly keep on accidently closing the notes that I just want to scroll down on. It's way too sensitive and I'd rather use the back button or have the swipe sensitivity at least on the very left side of the screen than on the whole screen.

  36. It is a bit hidden, but it is there: Hold down the opt key (Mac client), then click on the help menu. Choose Troubleshooting / Problem solving / whatever it is called in English. Choose Reload, or even Force Reload from the submenu You will see the page refreshing, and a circle briefly showing, the sign of syncing traffic If you have problems with crashes, it often is caused by corrupted local data. You can try this (Mac again): Go to the Evernote menu, Preferences, and uncheck „Keep data when leaving“ Lag out of EN (File menu), quit EN (cmd-q) If you want to be very sure, restart the Mac Open EN, log back in, wait for it to run an initial sync.

  37. thank you for the suggestion. I have more than a decade of lovingly tagged notes that I might want to read some time. searching by tags is such elemental, basic, key functionality of evernote that it should never ever not work. sadly the "ever not" approach is what evenote now stands for

  38. By scrapping an old, overly complex and not maintainable software and start with an empty sheet. This is how the new clients were born. My personal use is shifting more and more over to v10, as with new releases new and old features are rolled out, adding to the toolbox. In some aspects v10 is already the better product, in many it may be different, but on par, and some are still not working as I would expect them to do. Your experience may be different, as we are 2 different users. If what you get does not spark joy for you when using it, make a cut and move on. Looking back in a nostalgic mood does not do any good for you.

  45. Just solved the issue. The problem was that evernote trying to find webpage link inside the <head> while Amazon moved it into the <body> element. so to add it back to the head, just paste the following in the console document.head.appendChild($("link[rel='canonical']")); Clip the page and everything will work correctly. I suggest to use Tampermonkey to auto run the script.

  46. That's strange. I don't really use the web (online) version, but I just went into it, and there's no option for exporting to PDF from there. The help screens only mention exporting to PDF from Windows or Mac. I've tried a few more notes, but so far everything is okay. If I do come across it, I'll be sure to raise a ticket as well, so they have it from more than one person. (Might get it moved up the backlog faster that way.)

  47. Which other vendors, exactly? None of the 'big' software companies (Amazon, IBM, Microsoft...) publish anything in detail. (And Evernote are developers, not vendors.) Plus for 6 of those 7 years it wasn't feasible for the app to provide features that would work reliably in several different operating systems on nearly all devices. Now the app is more independent of the device OS, lots more is possible - but there are still lots of development issues to resolve first.

  48. I posted this on the possible bugs forum, but if it's not a bug, then I request a new feature where I can set a preference. While using the Mac app (not the web app), when I drag a note into another note to create a link, which is something I do a LOT, the link created is a web link instead of an app link. If this is a bug, I'm notifying you to add to your list of things to fix. If this is intended behavior, then I make the feature request to give me an option I can set somewhere so that all links to notes that I copy and paste are app links instead of web links. I use the APP links everywhere -- inside the app and when pasting into other programs like my task manager. By the way, I know how to use the copy internal link option to copy an app link as a workaround. Thanks and keep up the good work.
