    Ahem. Re-reading this, I realize that the last clause should have been less, um, global: "they don't actually know anything about whether Evernote is at any kind of risk." They know all kinds of stuff that, you know, actually exists.

    The initial post is IMHO just BS ... Currently companies that offer solutions for digital remote work (like EN) are thriving, not suffering. Everybody who can work from there is at home, everybody working from home needs access to documents and workflows, and server / cloud based solutions like EN Business are made for remote digital group work. If EN would not be privately help, it would be one of the winners at the exchange.

    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.

    All good, Jeff. Something like what you describe would be really good, and I think it's what these threads are requesting. And as someone said in a humor group, "When we make typos, the errorists win."

    @gazumped, @Dave-in-Decatur thanks a lot for the feedback -- I've been trying to move from Windows to Linux for a while and the lack of an Evernote native app has been one of my major stumbling blocks, but I have to say I've been positively surprised by Evernote Web. Looking forward to the native app that Small promised some time ago!

    AppCleaner is an app, made to clean other apps from a Mac. It is free, and gives you more control over what to erase and what to keep. In some cases you want to keep something, for example settings to make a reinstall easier. In the case of EN, it is important to really clean every piece of software from the Mac, because this is often the cause for continued crashes. The standard trash bin procedure will sometimes not remove this residue, which leads to more crashes even after an uninstall. Checking all positions in AppCleaner will as well remove the data base, so if it has developed problems, they will be removed as well. You can download it for free, for example here: https://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/ The last weird bit that maybe got stuck somewhere is cleaned out by restarting the Mac after the cleaning.

    Agreed. I did that with Evernote five years ago and loved it ever since. I've tested out OneNote, and Notion, but find that Evernote is the one that fits me the best.

    I really love the new web beta editor, and really look forward to these features (and uniformity) rolls out the Mac and iOS apps. As much as I like using the Web client now, the difficulty moving notes into notebooks makes it nearly impossible to avoid going to the other apps. Can we get a quick search or filter box on the "Move To" that allows you to find notebooks... or at least show the notebooks in their stacks, rather than a long alphabetical list of all notebooks... P.S. - Also really need ability to edit reminder dates.

    PinkElephant, yeah, you are right. You *have* to sync after posting each image just in case. Images don't disappear all the time, but if you can't trust it, well you basically have to sync every single time. It's a fairly important bug if you ask me, especially if you come back later to discover your work is gone! (I use Evernote for bug testing at work, and my notes are filled with pictures - dialog boxes I saw, etc) and oftentimes I can't get them back without reproducing all the how-to steps I was documenting, especially errors and bugs!

    In addition to what @gazumped and @dconnet said, a little different take is that "All Notes" is always available in the left panel, even if the left panel is minimized. And the keyboard shortcut Shift+F6 always works as well.

    ...what @PinkElephant said; plus - worst case, try exporting half your notes. If that works, do half the rest - repeat as necessary. Whichever export fails contains your note error(s)... Try more halves (if necessary) to narrow that down.

    I notice that the beta web client changed from 6.6 to 6.7 on Chrome. But unlike most betas I have used over the years, there is no announcement, no list of changes.. It seems like the web beta isn't really being treated like a real beta release. Users seem to have little insight into how things are going with the "new" Evernote, what features are there and what aren't.

    Hi All, Since Evernote’s earliest days, the five clients (Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, and Web) have been evolving separately, tackling the challenges of software development in subtly different ways.In this installment of Evernote Behind the Scenes, CEO Ian Small talks to Mike, a senior member of the engineering team, about the work they’re doing to reunite the Evernote family. Ian and Mike discuss the fundamental changes they’re making to how Evernote communicates between client and cloud, and how they’re tackling the difficult task of making a single shared code library work across the five different apps.

    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?!

    There is a setting in the installed desktop versions, but nothing in the web (yet). Previous versions of the web client defaulted to attachments rather than having an inline viewer, so maybe stepping back to one of those (in settings) would help?

    We have seen politicians in the U.S. do this very well, at the level of states (most states) and cities. My children live in California and New Mexico, where the political leaders have done well, although of course there is still a great deal of suffering and difficulty. At the federal level, on the other hand, the very highest level of "leadership" has been pretty much exactly the opposite of what you say. This is indeed the worst type of circumstance. In the U.S., the very first major outbreak was in such a home, in the Western state of Washington, where travel to and from China is common. It gave all of us a stark view of what could happen. The most tragic thing, I think, is that people who die in senior care homes and in hospitals are isolated from their families, who of course are not allowed to see them. It is dreadful for all concerned. Well, the steady march away from the topic continues! If anyone else does actually experience this, please do post here!

    Typically this results from searching in a notebook/stack context that doesn't contain all matches for your search. It's showing you notes from that context, which is nice if you specifically want to search that context. The fact that it offers up suggestions as to other places to find matches is nice as well. If you want to start with All Notes, you have to select it first, or start your search using the F6 shortcut, which selects All Notes, then puts the cursor in the search box. Means exactly what it says: it's matching words starting with "dogs", so "dogs" would matchm, as well as "dogsled", but not "doge". Two references: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313828-How-to-use-Evernote-s-advanced-search-syntax and https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php

    I finally decided to wipe out Evernote from my Mac, multiple times if necessary, and before entering into this PITA process, I followed your suggestion to try out the options available from within Evernote by alt-clicking on Help menu. I tried all these options, in this order: recreate text search index, recreate Spotlight index, repare notes list. I think I already tried these options about 6 months ago, and it did not solve the issue. This time, however, it seems it did. At least, I can tell I haven't encountered the crash since yesterday. Maybe the development team made some changes to these hidden debug options since then... Fingers crossed...

    When I'm researching something, I either clip to Evernote, or I keep a note open and then I just Alt-C to capture any image/clip. Alt-c is just a shortcut to Faststone that saves to disc and to clipboard. I then past the clipboard immediately into Evernote. It's rote. I do it a gazillion times/day. Then I notice that the image size is like 2MB - I don't need it that big. If I notice in time, then I go back to the webpage or whatever source I'm working with and to Ctr Alt C, which is snag-it, which also saves to clipboard but 60% reduced. So I take the shot again, put it in Evernote, remembering to paste it *after* the existing image before deleting the previous image (if I forget, and I delete the original image first, Evernote hangs for about 30 sec - an old bug that was never fixed). If I notice too late, like the next day, well, then it's right-click, open in a program, reduce, save. All I'm saying, really, is that it would be nice to just right-click on the image and have an option that says: reduce by... and have options, like 75%, 50%, whatever. Not the end of the world to do it the way I do, but for quick research and note taking it's just a few steps extra that I wish we didn't have to take.

    None of this helps @lisec, who already knows an external editor can be used (e.g. MS Paint, Batteries IncludedTM), and wants a simple control in Evernote, or at least one added to the included Evernote image annotater. Obviously, there's no way to do batch processing in this use case (i.e., using the Windows client), so not sure why that's relevant here.

You'll need to press the Enter key to initiate a saerch, but it might take some lag out of the process. Do not use "EN" as a note-taking program. Type text into a word processor and, if you want copies in Evernote, copy/paste the notes from the word processor into Evernote. Use the web version for everything. The web version uses entirely different software and has none of the hangups. The downside of doing this is that you lose the additional functionality of the desktop version, including the ability to use the desktop version when you have no internet connection (you will need to use workarounds 1 and 2 when using the desktop program offline - the hangups are caused by continuous database computations in the Evernote database on your PC, which starts whenever you type in text or do a search.) Evernote is functional as a repository, not as a data entry program and not at all as a word processor. I don't know if the Apple version is as plagued with these programs as the Windows version. Evernote was originally an Apple-only program. It's hard to believe it could have taken off if it also had the hangup problems. Logged into Windows from a Test account instead of my main account - this fixed it, proving that the issue must be a program or background process that's only running in the main account Back in the main account, disabled everything in Task manager's Start-up tab - this fixed it, so then a process of elimination was required to isolate the program causing it (Sticky Password) Concerning the fonts: You can choose which fonts are in use on your PC, and uninstall all the others. If you want to keep them "just in case" you can save the files containing the font information in another folder. Those in use will be found in all applications that allow for it. There is an attachments folder. Other users solved their issue by deleting the content: C:\Users\{username}\Evernote\Databases\Attachments , or wherever you have your EN installed. Try removing the complete installation with Revo Uninstaller (it reaches the files other uninstallers don't usually touch). Then download and re-install the app from Evernote.com and log in with your normal user details so that the database and search indexes can be rebuilt from the server. If Evernote has just updated to a newer version, and your are launching it form a pinned icon on the Window 7/10 taskbar, try un-pinning the icon, and launching Evernote from the Start menu. I have seen cases where Evernote would try to launch a defunct old version after an upgrade if an old taskbar shortcut is clicked. Turn off any less used Windows or other processes. My personal view is that things like the Windows index feature don't do much other than consume resources. An SSD is a hardware solution to the problem, but it does work well in my experience (45 k notes, 22.5 GB data base and no response issues). Simply press the Windows key + R keyboard shortcut to open the Run box, type dfrgui and press Enter. When the Disk Defragmenter window is shown, look for the Media type column and you can find out which drive is solid state drive (SSD), and which one is hard disk drive (HDD).

I haven't tested it, but will soon. My official recommendation is to bring your old laptop to a trusted computer shop (google review on shop reputation) to pay them a small fee to do it for you. If you can't afford an SSD Hard drive just go buy one of the SanDisk Micro Flash Memory Card (see link below) or something similar to this. On most laptop you can use these Memory stick card and if you have a desktop you can find cheap adapter that can fit on your desktop PC. The Memory size of these card go from 16Gb to 64Gb and you can find some at 128Gb (Depending on the size of you .exb file). The important point here is to select one that speed up at least 45MB/s read/write or more with no Frustration. Then follow the same process I mentioned on my previous post by moving your .exb on the Memory Flash Card. I have tested it on my 2 laptops and Evernote works like a charm 🙂 SanDisk Link: http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Extreme-Frustration-Free-Packaging--SDSDX-032G-AFFP/dp/B007M54E1M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1401912037&sr=8-1&keywords=sandisk http://www.amazon.com/Sandisk-MicroMate-Memory-Reader-SDDR-113/dp/B000YBH4YU/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1401916980&sr=1-1&keywords=sandisk+adapter+usb Get CCleaner from Piriform, it's a FREE registry, check \ fix. You can use any registry program you want provided it can fix the problems it finds. I have seen cases where the following can affect the software behavior: Large and/or corrupt attachments Large (>10K words) Notes Large account sizes (> 30K Notes) Special/unusually characters in the Note *to run Evernote in debug mode, type: evernote.exe/debugmenu in the Run Dialog in Windows --------- The process to fix the freezing can be summarized as follows: Use windows firewall to block evernote.exe whenever you're interacting with the evernote windows client Disable the windows firewall rule when your done interacting so the client can sync. The details on the process: First create a windows firewall rule Create a windows firewall rule: Windows Firewall/Advanced Settings/Outbound Rules/New Rule. Type of rule = Program Program path = the path to your evernote.exe file (such as C:\Users\User1\AppData\Local\Apps\Evernote\Evernote\Evernote.exe) Then choose "Block the connection." When does this rule apply? Check all three options. Then for the name, make sure to name it "Block Evernote." This gives you a firewall rule which can be turned on and off by batch files Next create a file named "Block Evernote.bat" which looks like this: netsh advfirewall firewall set rule name="Block Evernote" new enable=yes timeout 7200 netsh advfirewall firewall set rule name="Block Evernote" new enable=no This batch file will enable the blocking, then wait for 2 hrs (7200 seconds), then disable the blocking. It will leave a command window open during the countdown, which will remind you that the blocking is enabled, and allow you to press any key while in that window to skip the countdown and disable the blocking (such as when you're done working in the client) When running the batch file, you don't want to click itself, but rather you want to create a shortcut which runs with administrative privileges, and use that to activate the batch file. Thus next you create a shortcut to this batch file (in order to provide administrator privileges). Once the shortcut is created, you need to right-click the shortcut, go to Properties, click Advanced, and Run as Administrator checkbox (if you skip this step it won't work, because netsh needs admin privileges). Now double-click this shortcut to stop the window's client from talking to the servers, and it will magically make the windows client usable again (at least it did for me). Pressing any key inside the command window which opens will again allow the client to connect to the servers and synchronize If you forget to press a key, the command window will count down and re-enable the client's communication after the 7200 seconds (or whatever number you choose for that value). One final optional step I used to make activating blocking a little more convenient was to pin the shortcut to the taskbar. This can be done as follows: Navigate to your shortcut you created, hold the shift key on your keyboard while right-clicking the shortcut, and select "Copy as Path". (This option will only show up while shift-right-clicking.) This copies the path of the shortcut to the clipboard. Go to the start menu, start typing "cmd" and when "Command Prompt" comes up, click it to open a command prompt window. That command prompt window should show up on you screen, with an icon on your task bar While the command window is still open, right-click the command prompt icon on the taskbar and select "Pin to Taskbar." Close the command prompt When the command prompt is closed, shift-right-click the command prompt icon on the taskbar and select "Properties" In the properties dialog box, on the "Shortcut" tab, in the "Target" field, type "explorer.exe" and then paste the contents of the clipboard Thus the target box should look something like: explorer.exe "C:\Users\User1\Desktop\Block Evernote.bat - Shortcut.lnk" Hit "OK" to close the dialog box Now every time you want to activate the blocking so you can use the windows client, you need only click that command window icon on the taskbar, and then the "Yes" button which pops up when windows asks you if this program can make changes to your computer. (Note: This process is a little annoying because each time you click the shortcut on the taskbar you need to still click the "Yes" button on the UAC prompt which comes up next. For more tech savy users, you could eliminate this step by creating a task in task scheduler which runs with highest privileges and runs your batch file (but has no trigger). Then in the "Target" field in your taskbar shortcut you put something like C:\Windows\System32\schtasks.exe /run /tn "Block Evernote" where "Block Evernote" is the name of the task scheduler task which runs the batch file. This eliminates the UAC prompt and starts the blocking as soon as you click the shortcut on the taskbar. This also eliminates the need for the shortcut to the batch file with admin privileges; you only need the original batch file.) This is a lot of messing around, but totally worth it to me to be able to use the client again. Hope this is useful for someone else. Cheers. --------- Sign all the way out of EN, File - Sign out yourusername. Then start EN and select Evernote - Options in the upper left corner. Change the data base location to what you want there. Once signed in EN will build the data base at that location from the server, so give it time depending upon how many notes you have. Again, if you have any local notebooks, export them so they can be imported after the download is complete. -------- run a chkdsk /f on your PC. It will take time, but will ensure that the issue isn't hardware.

    Hmmn. Guess I got used to the way I do things - I tend to use XnView to resize pictures; My system default is to open JPG and PNG files in that app, and three key combinations will crop (if necessary) to a selected size set light levels automatically resize to 1080 / 680 / 340 wide and 96ppi (options are set for particular uses of mine) Saving the processed file puts the edited image back in the note. - I do that with most images I post from my phone, though it is possible to crop images there too. My desktop screen is just bigger and keyboard-convenient. Having said which - I guess if there were an Evernote option to save pics as Original or Optimised plus a crop tool, I'd use it...

    I wish they could share more about this. EN is getting harder and harder to use now with the awful tagging management in iOS, lack of ability to merge notes, etc. It’s pretty miserable. I wish I could find a viable alternative. I know that’s probably sacrilegious to say here, but it’s true.

    Currently, all emails I send to my Evernote "Email Notes to" address land in the "Inbox" notebook. I am suggesting to have a separate email address for each notebook, just like Todoist has a separate email for each project. I know, it is possible to route an email into a specific notebook by adding "@notebook_name" to the email subject but in practice, this is inconvenient, time consuming, and error prone. you have to remember to use "@" (instead of "#" as it is in other applications). You have to type the notebook name correctly. You have to click edit subject + navigate to the end of it + type out the notebook name manually ... For the Todoist projects to which I often email todos, I saved the corresponding email addresses into my address book, all prefixed with "Todoist - " - thus, when I start typing "Todo" in the recipient field, all of my email clients are giving me auto-complete suggestions for all Todoist project email addresses I saved. Very convenient, very fast to use, no danger of mistyping. I'd love to do the same with Evernote notebooks. A nice side effect of not modifying the email subject: all common email clients are automatically grouping emails with the same subject into a thread (even if prefixes like "FWD:" are added). Thus, leaving the subject as is when forwarding to Evernote will attach this forwared email to the same thread as the original one, making it easy and convenient to check which ones you saved to Evernote already. This feature request also reflects the desires of dozens of commenters on the following two feature requests. Yet, I decided to create a separate thread here because the other two are only mentioning this feature among others: Feature Request: Link multiple email addresses to Evernote account Multiple Email Adresses

    It's worth pointing out that another use case for this feature is sharing. If my wife and I are collaborating on a project, I'd like to be able to give her (or my mom or sister, none of which are normal EN users) an email address which she can use to contribute notes to our shared notebook. When I'm asking others to help me collect information for a project—whether it's taxes, recipes, or family documents—asking them to add a specific token to a subject line is one more point of complexity to include in the request.

    Even something simple like consistently displaying the first image in the note would work MILES better than the current system. It's one of my most-hated features of Evernote, the seemingly random thumbnail selection. It's like the developers took time in considering the question "How can we best frustrate our userbase?"

    I just fired up Evernote after almost 2 years of inactivity. I just got a Samsung Tablet S3 and I love the pen. I would consider upgrading to Premium if Evernote supported the s-pen using the Samsung Android SDK. This would reduce the lag greatly and probably offer more features. http://developer.samsung.com/galaxy/pen

    An awesome feature for me would be the ability to create clickable links (sort of like HTML anchors) that take you to a specific place in a note. They could point to someplace within the current note, or to a place in a different note. They should probably be indicated by a little icon to show their presence, and to allow deleting them, or maybe even dragging them to a different place. It would be great to be able to copy the link, and paste it into one or more places in your notes.

    Hey folks of Evernote, I just switched to Evernote this week. Used and tried it several times but so far I focused on Google's Keep. Now I noticed the new layout and I must say you really took 10 steps backwards in terms of user experience. With Evernote you can handle hundreds of notes easily (at least you could). But with the new layout you can just see like 8 notes in the general notes view. Even for viewing my notebooks I have to scroll pages without any orientation. How can you seriously introduce something so confusing when you aim at increasing productivity? I would guess that some folks like it. However I would also bet that many/ most don't approve with the change. It is nothing against the layout itself, but rather about the customization you offer. And that customazition equals ZERO. Why don't you offer different layouts (like Google Mail) where the user can choose from or even customize his/ her own? I cant even create a table with more than 6 columns (like for weekdays) anymore. That feels like a really bad joke! The old layout looks out dated, but at least it is functional. Hopefully you consider this. If the new version replaces the old one I will jump ship! cheers -Manuel

    After reading this, I understand that this is a deliberate choice by your product team. That being said, I would really love this to be a complete recap. The summary as it is isn't really useful for me. A complete recap would. Here's what my typical workflow/use case is: I read a long PDF (>50 pages, oftentimes in the 200 page rank). I make a lot of annotations in there. Afterwards, I go through all my annotations again for a more in-depth reading. Why this would make the experience of using evernote annotations for me a lot better: I realize I could just scroll through the entire book and look for annotations, but having a complete recap in the same format as the truncated summary would be a significant time-saver and a much better experience. It's mentally taxing to scroll through so much content having to look for annotations, and then when coming across an annotation to "switch" into read-this-in-depth mode. Oftentimes these annotations require me to initiate a separate action: research, executing a series of tasks outlined in the PDF, taking notes in separate documents, etc. On a related note, being able to add bookmarks to the PDF would be great (as would opening annotated PDFs at the place where they were left open, so it saves me the scrolling around to find the place where to continue). Thanks for considering these suggestions!
