    Not sure what this means. The Evernote for Windows screen clipper can be configured to use a different format by editing the string value "ScreenClipperFileName" string value in the registry at Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Evernote\Evernote\TrayApplet. Default is "ScreenClip.png", but you can change it to "ScreenClip.jpg" to save in JPG, and other formats may be possible: ".tif" and ".bmp" also appear to work. The keyboard shortcut used to invoke the screen clipper can be configured off the Evernote taskbar notification icon's right-click menu using Options / Configure SHortcut Keys... or from the main Evernote application: Tools / Options / Clipping. Beyond that, this doesn't solve the OP's request. Obviously, Evernote for Windows has the ability to create images in various formats, and given that they can obviously read and display other formats (and having implemented similar functionality myself), it probably wouldn't be a stretch for them, technically speaking, to provide a Save As for various formats (it really seems that this would be a "Convert To..." operation, to convert a note image in place, rather than saving it to disk, but whatever). So it all then comes down to a prioritization issue, per usual. Evernote is not an image editor, and relies on external applications to do that, which is an entirely valid approach. Having never seen a request like this before and given, I'd guess that this wouldn't be terribly important for most users, and therefore a nice-to-have, lower priority item, but that's purely a guess on my part.

    Thank you, I wish I could launch templates from my home screen.

    Hi. Have you seen that anywhere other than in these Forums? Because even our Admin doesn't seem to know whether it's policy or not. As to the general question, I'm not aware of any way to show Evernote that these are the same device. If you do get locked out while only using two devices we can escalate a support request here for you, but my advice at present would be to disconnect that device and see what happens...

    There is an alternative to the official templates: Create a note and put everything in there you want for the template. Then define this note as a favorite. By this it will stay on top of your notes. When you want to create a new note with this template content, open it and create a duplicate note from it.

    @May L, yes, this is with the web client only and I'm using the beta editor. Correct, this issue is happening on view. No search was involved.

    Thanks for the response. We generally try to go through official bug channels but I'm not sure what that channel is here. The issue for Colaboratory is that just having the Evernote Web Clipper browser extension installed breaks the website. Users are uninstalling the extension when they find the issue but Evernote should not be breaking other websites.

    Relative to search, if you haven't already, go to Tools - Options - Search and set Search as you type delay to something like 50. This will delay EN starting the search until there is a 50 millisecond delay in typing. Avoids intermediate search actions. Do you have On Demand Sync turned on? Find it at Tools - Option - Synchronization. This will slow down searches as the majority of the work happens at the servers. For me the one way to slow down EN is to back space in the search box. Don't know why but that is the one way to get EN to pause for me. Other than that, I pretty much have instantaneous response time all the time. If I mass edit tags I don't see a slow down in response time. It takes longer than it used to for the changes to sync, but I don't notice anything operationally as the sync occurs. Just FYI, I am probably over zealous in turning off all the Windows plumbing stuff that just eats up cycles, things like file indexing and any of the phone home monitoring stuff. That and most things other apps want to have running in the background. The fewer extraneous things running the better in my view.

    No issues that I have seen, performance per normal for me. Not optimal, but one of the things that seems to help with EN responsiveness is an SSD drive. Could be a hardware solution to a software problem but it has worked very well for me.

    Hey everyone, issue resolved. I was actually able to find a ticket submission option through the Evernote website; I think my browser just failed to load this option the first time. I apologize for my arrogance - Evernote was actually quite available for me and helped out. As for the strange tech issue: It wasn’t a bug at all - my account was compromised by a third party apparently, so what I needed to do was reset my password.

    Thanks for your feedback! Evernote has the searchability, which we need, and some organizational/layout things that make it very appealing for recipe collecting and sharing. Thanks this is very helpful! I have a question though - from what I can tell, you can't create Notebooks within Notebooks. Is this correct? It seems like a very useful function. We need to create a way to separate our groups of note recipes (soups, beef, breads, etc) and I don't want to have to go through the sharing Notebook process with my partner every time I create a new Notebook (unless I have to). We will have up to 20 shared notebooks eventually - is this even possible? THANK YOU!

    Just a note to say I love the new search. I guess I'm in that Pareto band of users who can't be bothered with Boolean etc if the "standard" search experience gets me close enough, quick enough – which from a quick play around this certainly does!

    Hi All, In one of the first episodes of Evernote Behind the Scenes, CEO Ian Small and senior designer Mariano discussed our plan to improve search in Evernote Web. At the time, it was just that: a plan. Now Ian checks in with May, a senior product manager at Evernote, to see how that plan has become a reality. They put a working version of Evernote’s improved, soon-to-be-released search through its paces, showing how it really is “more interactive, more meaningful, and ever more useful."

    O.K. Seems EN release management is a bit off the road at the moment. Since running into problems with the sandboxed execution when installing from the AppStore, I always take the direct install instead of the AppStore. @Shane D. Hello Shane, could you look into this matter. I would expect the EN website and the AppStore to be loaded simultaneously with the most recent release.

    Hmmn. Looked at a couple of options, but there doesn't seem to be a way to actually delete notebooks in bulk. Might be a good reason for this in terms of data protection - it might be possible to delete your whole account in one accidental swoop otherwise... or it might be a question of resources; deleting multiple notebooks would mean at least checking for any linked assets and moving those to safety. Anyhoo - best suggestion so's not to be annoyed by the extra entries - add your notebooks to a 'trash' Stack and ignore them.

    Good to clear this up, thanks for that. Though the above would have been helpful back in, what was it, 2016 when the restriction was added. Advice was dispensed in the forums back then re just sign off and on to whatever devices were used by a basic account. It was not clear then that the intent was two quasi specific devices. No horse in the race as a premium subscriber since forever plus this change makes all the sense in the world to me, just seems a bit disingenuous from a communications basis. Not you @Shane D., EN.

    Please help me out on this! Evernote has been counting my single iPhone as if it were two different devices for a while now, as shown on the attached picture. Both “iPhone” and “(name)’s iPhone” are the exact same phone-they have the same log-in times, not to mention that I only have one iPhone and nobody else has access to my account. Up until recently, the unsync devices pop-up would come up, I’d de-select the “second” iPhone, and everything would work fine. However, with Evernote now limiting de-syncs, I’m afraid I’ll get locked out of my account if I don’t get this fixed urgently. Any advice? Anyone else had this bug?

    Apropos the fact that nothing really helpful comes to mind: Well, if that's not a metaphor for Google as a whole, I don't know what is... OK, maybe it's some kind of network connectivity thingie; can you see https://evernote.com/ ?

    Just tested it. This is no function of EN, it is a Windows issue. When I choose "send to ..." and then Evernote, it takes the picture as it is, format, size and all. EN just creates the note as an envelope for the new content. There seems to be no direct way to influence the picture while it is send. Personally I use the little free App Irfan View to convert, rename and a bunch of other actions on picture files. It can do it in a batch mode, so you can convert a number of files in one go using the same settings. It installs on the computer and can be opened through the "Open with ..." option in the right click menu.

    Hi, thanks for getting back to me! When I desynced the “second” iPhone, it warned me that I only have two of these “de-syncs” of these extra devices (devices over my two device limit) per month and that if I used them both, I’d be unable to log back into my account. I didn’t get a screenshot of it, but if it happens again, I’ll be sure to grab screenshots.

    Sync is always on with WiFi. Go to settings and un-check Synchronize on WiFi only to enable sync on cellular.. You can drag down on the note list or go to Setting on the iPhone to force a sync.

    Though you can't change it in Windows Settings to match an arbitrary format, such as what @Don Dz uses, at least as far as I can tell.

    I only have a laptop and a phone using Evernote, there is no third device on my account but Evernote randomly duplicates my phone sometimes so it shows up as two different devices. It happens repeatedly every few days after I unsync the duplicate. i don’t see any way to contact support without a premium membership (which also leads me closer to leaving Evernote at this point, that’s a terrible business practice...) so please let me know if this is the right place to post bugs or if this is a better point of contact.

    Just tried the clicking on links. Seems to work as expected with a text search, does not work following a reminder or tag search. In some instances it keeps the current note set and goes to another note in the list. In some instances it shows no results. IAC, shift clicking on the link opens the right note in its own window. So, still not working as before best I can tell. Need more info let me know.

    I don't think we can expect the users to understand the technical constraints of implementing dark mode. Plus the claim that it's almost impossible is not obvious as many other MS apps have the feature; Adobe, OneNote, Keep, etc. The fact is that this company has had 7 years to implement this most requested feature and they have chosen not to - which is a shame. But I think this forum is a fine place for feedback from users, no matter how ignorant we are and how "impossible" the features we request.

    Hello Everyone, Web pages can be complex, and pasting or clipping their contents into notes can have unexpected results. In this installment of Behind the Scenes, CEO Ian Small chats with Chris, an engineer at Evernote, about the work he and his team are doing to improve the way content is copied from the web into Evernote. Customers will soon have more control over how information is presented, giving them the flexibility to edit or preserve it as needed. Subscribe to our channel to follow the journey, and join the conversation on the Evernote Forum.

    Hi All, You may have noticed that all threads requesting Markdown support have been merged into this thread, regardless of platform specificity. This was done in order to better enable us to quantify and qualify user requests, and amplify their voice. While this does not mean this is a feature that will be coming, we certainly want to relay user feedback/sentiment to our various teams. Moving forward, please put all commentary and votes for Markdown support here!

    Sure slippery slope. But I want to use Evernote as a scratch pad to refer back to things and use as I speaking to clients. I need to SUM quickly and refer back to without creating a spreadsheet just for a quick calculation.

    I use Penultimate on the iPad with the Apple Pencil. It syncs with the Evernote service and the iOS app just fine, but of course in the main Evernote app, the notes are read-only. That's OK, but why on earth can't that 'read only' message include a link using a standard URL scheme that takes me back to that particular note in Penultimate? "Click here to edit this note in Penultimate." Seems like only a few hours of coding to me, unless I'm missing something.

    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?!

    This is one of my top requests. I think you can determine which image is shown according to the vertical size of the image (& maybe the horizontal size plays in too but the vertical size seems most important). But I hate attaching a huge vertical image just to keep my cover image as the one I want. I wish I could simply designate the image I want used for the cover image. That would be really great. Thanks, Evernote. You're awesome.

    Dear Devs in Evernote. Evernote is the best note taking app out there hands down. But for anybody working in development one big issue is missing markdown support. Nowadays Markdown is: a standard, a convenient, fast and reliable method to write tech docs That's why any developer I know, including myself, is using some additional Markdown editor trying desperately to fit it somehow into Evernote workflow. There is plethora of such tools: Atom iA Writer Bear Writer Byword Day One Markdown Pro Marxico Quiver Ulysses etc. Which means that there are libraries if not the whole ready to plug-in text editors supporting markdown. All the above applications are great for note taking in markdown, writing tech documents, essays or even books. However they don't integrate with Evernote at all (with exception of Atom and Marxico) and they all lack (to a different degree): powerful image support not to mention stellar Evernote OCR advanced Evernote search easiness of sharing notes in Evernote Evernote notebook feature Please put some pressure on the product managers to prioritize this feature. Integrate Markdown editor into Evernote to make great product even better.

    A couple of the threads I have been following have recently talked about past/recent changes/releases/upgrades to Evernote. It struck me that it may help the discussion if we had a list of all such changes to refer to. So, I created a prototype of such a list with Google Ddrive. - - - Note. I only added about 20 line items so that one and all can see what I am talking about. I obtained the information from official release notes that I received from Evernote. You can see the list at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1kmo6eXR6NQ5SxEqnYQxr8e72tJz6NUKDDYc_SPMhJF4/edit?usp=sharing. It is a Google "Sheets" document. It works much like Excel. Anyone who can see it can also edit it. So, if you think it is worthy of your time and effort, you are welcome to add more lines.

    I also wish to have the option to have my opening screen display the notebooks list. I have hundreds of notes, organized into about a dozen notebooks. And yet when I open Evernote, it's like a disorganized file cabinet with papers strewn everywhere rather than sorted in my carefully made, tidy folders. I was astonished to see that someone wrote that 'the notebook list is a click away.' A basic tenet of usability is 'don't make me think' and its parallel is "don't make me click.' Besides opening to a mess rather than order, there's a privacy issue, mentioned in a previous post. I may have sensitive information in a recent note that I don't want someone to see when I open the app. Please allow users to customize this! A related matter... once I get the notebook list, I prefer not to see a set of recently used notebooks at the top of the list. This all too often requires more scrolling to get to the notebook I truly want at that moment. I would like to have the option to turn that feature off for a smoother user experience.

    setting a default notebook to open to would be useful I think. Yes, it is simple to get to your chosen notebook, why you could say that about any irritating feature. Turn the argument around - if it opened to a deafult book, its only two actions to get back to the list of notes! If the list of notes was intended to be used so much, or be the default, why have folders, AKA notebooks? Why not just put everything into one place? If a user doesn't use tags or notebooks, opening to the note list makes sense - it matches the way the user works. But I'll wager that most users use either tags/notebooks or use both, which implies that they want to view their work in that way, with notes being differentiated/separated from each other according to some criteria. Sticking them all altogther doesn't match the way they work, and contradicts the tag/notebook design rationale. There is also the privacy issue, when EN opens, the screen is filled with your notes, maybe you wouldn't want someone looking over your shoulder to see some/any of them? Even opening to the list of notebooks would be better than a list of notes jumbled together regardless of tags of folders. A product like EN is about convenience and productivity, using UI taps just to get to see your work is neither convenient or aid productivity, quite the opposite. It's interesting that EN for Windows opens at the last viewed notebook, whilst the Web beta and Android versions open to the notes list.

    Hi All, I wanted to provide an update regarding some changes being made to Evernote's subscription plans. Beginning in early April 2018, we will remove the option to purchase new Plus subscriptions. For current Plus subscribers, nothing will change. Your subscription will continue to renew and you can still expect to see all of the ongoing improvements to Evernote, including note editing and formatting, search, organization, and more. So, why the change? In the three years since it was introduced, Plus has proven to be less popular than we thought it would be. This tells us that we need to find a better solution to meet your needs. We believe gathering customer feedback will help determine what those needs are. In the meantime, we will hold off on selling new Plus subscriptions.

    Well said MomoG, but I fear we're all talking to the wall, Evernote seem particularly unresponsive to customer feedback and have already said it's not a priority. In fact they seem very slow at fixing the bugs never mind introducing new features. For a product supposed to be convenient and let you work the way you want to, it seems to have a lot of inconvenient "like it or lump it" features.
