    Howdy, CalS: This is the 1st time I am utilizing this table function. Worked out-the-gate! This makes you the GENIUS of the day! Thank you much! ~ Alan ISSUE RESOLVED.

    There is an option to match the note width. The text should wrap after that. Otherwise the user can control the column width and display. Adjust the width and the text will wrap. If you like the set up you have in your screen shot then adjust the columns of the table therein. If you want more width in the table columns then you might close the left panel (F10 toggles it), shrink the width of the note list and then adjust the columns in the table.

    Just as a random contribution - I'm currently allowing Filterize to tag and sort my notes into the appropriate notebook based on keywords or titles. I just clip, drop or scan a new note and let the software sort it out. There's (obviously) a learning period where you need to check each day's new notes to see if they've all been assigned, and are set up correctly, but it seems to be working pretty well for me now. The trick is to set up a "Parameterisation" control note containing a table with Content (or Title), Tag and Notebook columns. When filterize 'sees' the content/ title keywords it will apply the tag(s) in that relative column and move the note to the specified notebook. Bit of a pig to get that working right the first time, but when it is, all you need to do is add another line to the table to handle new requirements.

    Also it looks as though when you set a sort order for notes and close the web interface and reopen it, the sort order is remembered from the last setting used , before this release it always defaulted to sorting by recently updated.

    There is a new option to move a note by selecting an icon next to the notebook name at the top of a note, that's useful!

    The places and devices are not relevant, it is easy to use servers in these places as in-betweens. Probably you use the same login data for EN as for other accounts. If this was stolen in a security breach (not at EN, there is no reported breach) and you have reused your login data, they can access any service you are using. Go to the web client - via browser - and immediately change your password. Use a strong, unique one, not used for any other service. Then check the clients. Revoke access for any client that is not your own. As a third measure I would activate 2-FA. Finally I would get a password manager, that creates good passwords and helps to keep track of them. Then go to every account you have, and make them secure by changing the login. Start with your E-Mail accounts, then everything related to money (bank accounts, paypal, amazon, eBay etc.), then the others.

    Evernote is currently under stiff competition and lots of pressure from users to keep updating and improving UI, features etc. I wanted to write a little bit about why I love Evernote as someone who has used it for five years and has stuck with it even though I tried out competitors. I really think this stuff will be broadly applicable, even if some of it might sound particular to how I use Evernote. I hope that Evernote will be able to overcome the competition, keep adding amazing features, but keep what makes it special. Evernote is the Secret Weapon I knew I was hooked on Evernote when I first watched The Secret Weapon. If you aren't familiar with it, TSW was a video guide made quite a few years back which gave a step by step approach on how to implement David Allen's famous "Getting Things Done" approach with Evernote. The videos still use the old version of Evernote, which is nice to see. It would be years until I read GTD, but the secret weapon captured a few of its ideas really well. But more importantly, it helped me understand how to use Evernote: use it for everything. Evernote gets better the more stuff you put in it. Evernote is inherently an everything bucket. The old company tagline was "Remember everything" and that was exactly right. In GTD David Allen speaks about the importance of capturing everything and why you should try to do that: A software which comes along promising that you will be able to do that is a software which can help you radically change your approach to productivity. Allen includes lots of promises as to what happens when you become properly organized (starting by capturing everything): Productivity becomes stress free Your relationships improve because you become good at keeping commitments You achieve your goals - starting with small ones which emboldens you to achieve bigger ones You become more creative because you have space in your head to think, and a desire to note it all down For me this is what Evernote is about as a productivity tool. It's the only note taking tool which takes this idea seriously, whether or not it was built for GTD. The underlying principle is self-evident once you get it - only by really noting everything down in a system you can trust, can you have any hope of properly dealing with everything you have to. And Evernote is that system. Tags and Notebooks Make Deep Organization Possible Evernote has this dual structure system: tags and notebooks. Like everything on the internet there is debate about how these should work. But what I value about Evernote is the fact that it has two systems for organizing which can be almost completely independent of each other. Mathematically, it means you can search for things in two dimensions. Whichever you prefer (notebooks or tags), the fact that you have both makes it super easy to locate and organize things. But I want to make the case for the form of using Evernote which I think is most effective. Tags are for subjects, projects, tasks and topics... There isn't any limit on how many tags you can have. You can nest them together and give them interesting names. Notebooks are for workflows. Look across all your tasks and you will see that there are common elements any project: brainstorming, planning, to-do lists, deferred, extra resources... These things are agnostic to the specific topic. If you are a novelist, every book and every chapter has character development, setting, plot elements and styling to it. If you're a scientist, the scientific method asks you to develop an aim, a hypothesis, literature review, a method, collect results and discuss... for whatever specific project. These 'workflows' are finite, fixed steps which help you get through a project. If you use Evernote just for school, then you probably have a few workflows: one for essays, one for practicals, one for exam prep... these would be stacks and in each stack you'd have notebooks. For 'essays' you would have notebooks like 'Research and Referencing', 'Outlining and Arguments', 'Main Draft'... That would cut across all your subjects (tags are history, English, sociology...) Of course, if you use Evernote for multiple roles like I do, then I just have a generic project management workflow as my notebooks (see image above). I have one or two other workflows that are particularly important to me (Studying and Journalling) so I separate it out from the generic project management stuff. The secret to really narrowing down the role of your notebooks is that absolutely everything else goes in tags.You can have hundreds of tags and with very little work nest them neatly together, showing how all your projects and tasks relate to each other. Tags are much simpler than notebooks, but they are the heart of what allows you to 'capture everything'. What really matters is that notebooks and tags are perpendicular. You can use one, or the other, or both... But they don't overlap. The key idea is to have two dimensional search. Even with 1000s of notes, if your notebooks and tags are well defined, you can usually narrow it down by just choosing a tag (or sub-tag) and then selecting the specific notebook. It's actually such a simple idea - tags are for topics, notebooks are for workflows - but none of Evernote's competitor's implement a similar system convincingly. Everything is, in one way or another, just notebooks. The final secret is Evernote's 'list' view. It gives you a flat list and shows your notes, their notebooks and tags which you can sort and filter rapidly. If you give descriptive titles, you can narrow down an enormous number of notes by selecting a notebook and a tag (or tags) as appropriate, and then just eyeball it to see which note you're interested in. I usually open the specific note in its own window - this lets me keep Evernote in the list view, minimize the editor to get speed, and focus on one single note when I'm busy with it. Search - Evernote's Power Tool Evernote's most unique feature, at first, was Saved Search. Tags and Notebooks allow you to store 1000s of notes in a neat and organized way. Saved Search brings that organization to life. You can filter on tags and notebooks to define a specific kind of 'thing' you're looking for - maybe all your brainstorming relating to a geography project you have - and then save it. That's not really that amazing - you could just do the search manually (as long as you didn't tag a note with like 15 tags). But the power of saved search is that it enables Evernote's search grammar. Search is Evernote's power tool. The search grammar is the drill bit itself and saved search is like electric wiring that brings it to life. The search grammar allows you to slice and dice your notes based on metadata besides just notebooks and tags. You can define dates and the type of content (e.g. checkboxes, reminders) that your notes should have. Of course, you can also search for keywords in the note body. Search does to notebooks and tags what notebooks and tags do to notes. Tags (with notebooks) let you turn 100 notes into a 1000. Saved search lets you turn 100 tags into 1000 if you really want. Saved search works very well together with normal search: you can save a search template and then add to it incrementally in the search bar. The Everything Box Evernote is a box. You're supposed to put things in it. Evernote has been consistently leading when it comes to that. The Web Clipper was a beautiful idea which turned the internet into something you could simply save into Evernote. Web pages are the source of so much of our information today - any note taking app has to have some kind of interface to get things from the web. And Evernote built the best one first. Some people talk about Evernote's development as if it lacks features. But there are some really powerful features that a lot of people are probably not using: You can email things right into Evernote. Not only does Evernote have an email address for your account, it can tag and send emails straight to a notebook, and each note created by email has a searchable attribute for source:email. A lot of our daily tasks appear in the form of email - Evernote's got you covered. You can create a folder on your computer and set it up so that when you drop something in it, that file is attached to a new note in Evernote. Many people are unaware of this feature, but it's a hidden gem. Evernote's image recognition is to mobile what the web clipper was to web: mobile is the new platform we are all on, and when you save images from your smartphone camera to Evernote, you can search for text within those images directly. If you take a picture of an informative poster, or screenshot something cool you see on your phone, you can easily send it to Evernote and search it later. On mobile, you can save voice notes into Evernote and use a stylus to draw with ink right inside normal notes. But the grand daddy of all minor features: CTRL+SHIFT+V. Paste directly into Evernote. You can copy any image or text anywhere and paste it straight into evernote. I take so many screenshots on my computer or come across so many passages which I will send straight to Evernote to rediscover later. Images are searchable so I could screenshot a Tweet and send it to Evernote in less than three seconds... this is my favourite feature... The value of these tools goes back to the original point. Evernote lets you capture everything - images, audio, ink, text, email... And capturing everything is that start of clearing your mind, seeing what you have to do, and getting organized. And everything is synced across all its devices. What About OneNote and Notion? OneNote has the most beautiful experience using ink. Evernote's doesn't compare - on the Windows desktop app, we don't even have inline ink. Notion has the most beautiful and powerful editor in the game. Evernote recently added more attractive tables - Notion allows you to basically create a database inside of it. But if you go back and look at everything I wrote, you'll understand something. Evernote's strength is not as an editor - whether of ink, or tables or whatever. Its UI is not that attractive either and it doesn't have to be. I'd happily take the UI from the TSW video so long as that program could really help me really organize my life and never forget anything. What Evernote does uniquely is it helps you organize everything. For five years I've searched for a competitor on this and I haven't found one. Because everyone is missing the key idea here: creating and organizing are two very distinct functionalities that all note-taking apps have to have, and organizing is more important. OneNote and Notion beat Evernote in terms of note creation and editing. But Evernote is not primarily a tool for editing and formatting notes. It's not even really a to-do list app. It's a tool for creating your own, personalized system for being organized, from scratch. Evernote's killer feature is that it lets you get organized and stay organized. Nothing else comes close on that front for me. Evernote Moving Forward I'm sticking with Evernote. Evernote does need to improve, like any other software or business. And I do think there are some basic features that, in the short term, would help it at least cover the same ground as OneNote and Notion. We do need inline ink, at long last - visual thinking by drawing is different to writing things out, and it's something you can't do without once you get into it We could do with more colours and easier formatting options The UI could be a little bit more slick... Better image insertion to make Evernote more visual - header images for notes, choosing the image to preview in snippet views or card views Some of the most recent improvements in Evernote have been in this vein - like Present and Templates. But long term, I think Evernote can continue to fend off competitors not by trying to compete with them on UI or editing features or whatever, but by continuing to outcompete them in creating a tool which can help you get organized flexibly. And the features we need should lean heavily on the organization aspect: If we get inline ink, then we should make ink handwriting searchable With AI developing as it is, voice notes should be directly searchable, with speech-to-text auto-generated and available in every voice note. Either searchable using text-speech matching, or you should be able to speak into the search bar. There should be parity between speech and text for recording notes and searching them. Better faster linking between notes, with an improved and smarter 'Context' recommender Image recognition and searching should be even smarter. I should be able to for image_of:building and get pictures of buildings, and then filter it by location or date as per normal search. A dedicated 'Search in Evernote' tool outside of the app's search bar. So if I'm looking at a document or web-page, I should be able to click something that says 'Find Related Notes in Evernote'... I used to use a tool called Word Web which let you highlight a word and click a keyboard shortcut to open a dictionary defining that word. Evernote could make a tool that lets you highlight a paragraph or click on an image and then hit a shortcut to search for notes related to that. This might sound like a lot but we already have something very close to this! The web clipper will recommend related notes to you as soon as you clip a web page. If you allow it, it will also recommend related notes when you do a Google Search which is really cool. Full-Text Search with full Boolean options - remember, this is Evernote's power tool. Smart import folders. This is a hidden gem feature in Evernote which can be built up. Lots of people use Evernote as a filing cabinet, and that's perfect. More powerful reminders - recurring reminders, location-based reminders like in Google Keep, better syncing with calendar apps and tools Smarter template notes - auto templating options for chosen notebooks and tags (if I create a new note in tag A/notebook B, it should create it with that template and have a non-intrusive "revert to blank note / choose different template" dialog box on the side This is a wishlist of some out there ideas. But the point for me is just to say that these kind of features - organization enhancers - should be the bulk of Evernote's concentration. Not editing (although it is important to have solid competencies there too). Conclusion I love Evernote. It's been my secret weapon for 5 years now. What I've found is that you can go off and try other note taking tools with nicer editing features and UI, but Evernote is incomparable in helping you get organized. It gets better the more you use it - 1000 notes is better than 100 notes. And so I wrote this piece just to share my favourite features, how I think about and use Evernote, and what I hope to see going forward. I hope it was useful to someone.

    Two features to greatly improve the note writing and organization experience: Header Styles – Standard header styles, such as Title, Sub-title, Header 1, etc. Medium, Google Docs, and Slack Posts all are great examples of this. You should be able to select these header styles using a click of a button. The current workaround is painful: change font size for the header line, then change font size again to start writing in the smaller font. Note Outline – Once you create headers, these headers can then become a note outline that can easily be navigated. Look to Google Docs for a great example of this. This would greatly help my ability to navigate my more lengthy notes. Please see screenshots below. Hope you consider this! It would be awesome!

    My re-workflow is like this: Scan as pdf, save to EN directly (AFAIK no choice of notebook in ScanSnap Home) Open the note, right click on the pdf header, open with - I use PDF Expert to edit pdfs, but Preview should do as well Do the editing (deleting empty pages, or rotate are common jobs for me as well) Close the pdf window (no need to save) - this will (usually) save the changes back to the pdf inside of the note Closing the note will save the changes in EN, and sync to the server Assign tags to the note, move to the right notebook Some pdfs will not allow for editing, here a copy will be created, that must be saved. The fastest way is to save to desktop, and then drag the file into the note in EN. But normally it works by just closing the window, not going through a save-process. On my iPhone I use ScannerPro. It has workflows that do automatic tagging and notebook-assignment with one click. The workflows need to be created first, but this is a one-timer. ScannerPro allows to edit the pdf directly on the phone (which is o.k. for deleting or rotating pages, less for real edits), and does its own OCR. For up to 10 pages it is a good alternative for the ix500.

    The JPEG format is a photo format, and does not support multiple pages. In general it is a bad choice to scan documents (=text), because the compression algorithm of JPEG creates blurry edges around the letters. This is not good for OCR. With JPEG ScanSnap Home will create a new note per page. With pdf there is the option to create a single, multipage document from all pages scanned together. Frankly I do not understand your problem. My ix500 feeds the pages right through, straightens them if they are a bit off and creates very good, already OCRed pdf documents. Unless I scan a photo, I would never bother with JPEGs. Fujitsu released a first 64bit-version of the ScanSnap Manger a short time ago. This does run under Catalina, offering additional options compared to ScanSnap Home. However I would not install it yet, because this first release can't address cloud services like EN. A future release will cover this, and I decided to wait until then.

    I'm sure some minor stuff won't make it for launch (and possibly not ever), but they seem to be working hard to get all the core functionality in. Biggest remaining missing items that I've noticed are presentation mode, the ability to control what notes and notebooks get synced locally, work chat, and some usability issues with tags.

    Take a look at the Evernote subreddit on Reddit for more discussion. They are considered "pre-Betas." Presumably Evernote is eventually going to open them up to everyone as a Beta at some point. It's taking them much longer than expected but they seem to be making steady progress, so soon, maybe? 🤷‍♂️ As for note merge, they JUST added it. Only tested it once and worked fine. It actually includes an optional feature of keeping a copy of the original notes. Haven't tested that, but could be useful when you're merging multiple notes and not sure if the format is going to get messed up. (Right now I might duplicate a note first and then test the merge, this option would remove the need to do that.)

    I finally caught up to this video and looking forward to the next. What struck me about this video is, as a Software Developer myself, that I saw all of the right constructs being put in place to support the evolution of Evernote towards the features I've been missing. My subscription is about to expire and before I knew this work was being done I was looking elsewhere for my needs. One thing made me pause before pulling the trigger on joining another system: Evernote has been around what seems like forever and has a huge backing of users. From what I've seen through the videos I'm very impressed with the team. But I want to focus on Ian as well. The person at the top of any given company helps determine the cadence and personality of the company. Ian strikes me as a servant leader, which is how I prefer to lead as well. He strikes me as the CEO that asks his team "What can I do to help you?" But more importantly, Ian is a person who cares about society and humans. I can tell based on the last few minutes of this video but also all throughout the other videos, in how he was with all of his team. Ian, thank you for standing up for what is right in this world! I'm so happy to see so many in the tech industry take a stand against racism. Like you, I have no idea what it must be like to be black or brown in this country, and like you I want to do something about it. In my case, I will call out racism whenever I see it and I have two children that will do the same! One more thing, and I've written this elsewhere, but hopefully it'll get noticed here: Being a Software Developer by trade (iOS, macOS, NeXT, WebObjects (if you remember that! :)), I'm willing to dig a big deeper in logs, use utilities, open up iTerm, etc. as a beta tester (and yes I signed up).

    If they will let you have some access/control of the local disk on the Dell you should be able to install EN and its data base there and have access whether attached to the remote server or not. Same caveats as the last job relative to keeping your own data secure and removing it should you leave the company. If you are really concerned about security and they will let you, you could use something like VeraCrypt to create an encrypted container (their parlance for drive) on the computer. Simply put it creates a virtual drive which is encrypted, call it N: for example, on the disk which requires a password to open. You put the EN data base in there. You have to log in to the drive via VeraCrypt and then start EN. When you log out of VeraCrypt the data can't be accessed without the password. Sounds harder than it is.

    @JDish - I'm sorry to read about your current health conditions. In my years as an Evernote user, I've never seen the product "hijack" my browser to show me a video. I can't imagine how or why Evernote would do this, especially since it sounds like a help video and not a marketing video. It doesn't seem like there's any real motivation to showing a help/support video unprompted. However, I can imagine how it would be easily to accidentally stumble upon a support video for the web clipper. For example, if you were using Evernote and clicked on the option for help/learning, it would have taken you into Evernote's web-based help center (in a new tab in your browser). There is an article on the web clipper specifically, which includes a video at the top. Based on your messages, I'm betting that you accidentally stumbled upon the help center and found your way to something that included a video on how to use the web clipper.

    Pink elephant. There is nothing wierd with the content of my post. It is true that my spelling is a bit erratic, that's because I just had my latest round of chemotherapy and I'm still a bit unable to concentrate or focus my eyes properly, and the dizziness is a bit problematic as well. Meanwhile my fine motor skills have been shot to pieces. What this means in case you can't work it out for yourself is that I can't coordinate my hand movements properly, so I hit the wrong keys, and when I try to check it, I have difficulty focusing on the screen, my brain wanders and I either forget where I was up to, or I simply can't find my place on the screen again. There's always the possibility of introducing new mistakes when I try to make corrections, which, because of the problems I just mentioned (did you get them first time, or should I explain them to you again?) don't always get noticed or corrected. It was nice of you however to point the typos out. I must remember to take more care because, well some people are not very understanding. I was trying to hurry though because I needed to eat, and if I don't eat something every couple of hours... well, feeling nauseous is one thing but the actual vomiting and the risk of ulcers is worse. Mind you, I've got 30% chance of lasting 6 months so in all liklihood, long term, ulcerative degeneration of my mouth, stomach and GI tract isn't going to be much of a problem. Although, as I said it was nice of you to point out my bad typo ridden post, did you have to be so totally judgemental and critical, not to mention rude and insulting as you did it? . I imagine you're always so quick to jump on such things without knowing any background. Nonetheless, thank you for reminding me how kind and special the vast majority of people I come across on a daily basis actually are. Now, as for the rest of your especially eloquent and well considered post. I can't fault the logic or accuracy when you say: "If you opened a video in your browser, you probably did it yourself." In fact, I think we could be more certain because if _I_ did open a video... then I most certainly _did_ do it myself. Not "probably" as you say, but definitely, with 100% certainty. So, I've got cancer and I'm under the influence of some high end, heavy hitting drugs and I make (quite) a few typos.. what's your excuse for making that particularly asinine comment, failing to understand a logical construction, or of failing to proof read what you wrote? Hey, no worries, you don't have to answer, no one's perfect. I am afraid I have to disabuse you though, of the notion that I am such a moron that I can open my browser, navigate to a website and load a video aimed at children and not remember it. How I'm supposed to do that when my typing is so bad is difficult to work out. Maybe there are people who are so stupid that they might do that, but I'm not one of them. Now, as you obviously haven't come across the phenomenon I described, or don't understand it, why don't you move out of the way so you don't get in the way of anyone else who might understand? As for your suggestion that I "move on" there is a very good chance that I will indeed be doing that. Hopefully, I might see Christmas before I do, or should I say I might still be here, how much of Christmas I'll actually see, be able to focus on, and actually experience is a different matter. Thank you for your other excellent suggestion of uninstalling the software. I had forgotten what a hotbed of excellent advice this forum is. Fortunately, I haven't forgotten that I still have that option, and when the time comes I shall, if I'm able to, do precisely that. For the time being though, it still has some use because most of the time I'm unable to write things down or take notes, and if I did actually manage to do so, I probably wouldn't be able to understand them. More importantly perhaps, other people such as the funeral directors might not either. Now, if you're wondering why this post has so few mistakes (any?) compared to the previous, I have to thank Anja, the 12 years old daughter of my neighbour who typed a lot of this post for me earlier. She volunteered so she could practice her English, although her English skills are quite perfect. Thanks are also due to Florence, my carer, who finished the typing in between all the other things she had to do tonight. I don't know what I'd do without them, but I guess it would be pretty unintelligible.

    I ALWAYS sort from "A to Z" (much faster to find things re: muscle memory.) Evernote (web) does NOT allow me to set this and forget it. Instead it forces me to manually reset sorting to "A-Z" every time I log in. Every. Single. Time. Please fix this time waster so I have the option to make this my default. Please.

    I acknowledge that Evernote's user forum isn't designed to house discussions on racism and privilege, but I also can't be silent about something as important as this. In my opinion, it's lunacy in this day and age that every single company and person hasn't taken a stance against racism and white supremacy. What Ian did in this video is the bare minimum that anybody with a voice should be doing right now. Additionally, I am assuming that your intention behind "couldn't care less what colour or creed someone is" was well-meaning and designed to communicate that someone's race/ethnicity doesn't bother you. However, I want to share that these sentiments often contribute towards systemic racism or—in the very least—the privilege some groups have over others (even though that wasn't your intention, I assume). Not caring (or "not seeing") race/ethnicity is a way of dismissing part of someone's identity, suggesting their experiences aren't valued, refusing to acknowledge your own privilege, and often shutting down further conversations about racial injustice. In most parts of the world—and definitely in the United States, where Evernote is based—systematic racism is rampant; as a result, we must care if we want to move towards a more just and equitable society.

    The zoom feature in Evernote is awesome! However, I find I'm constantly zooming. Would love to have a default zoom, or some way to make the font size consistent. One idea is to let the user decide how large they want the font to appear on their particular device. Then evernote measures a character or word in the note and zooms in to match the user preference. Or even just set a default zoom so that all notes are automatically zoomed in x2 or whatever the user has set.

    I wanted to switch to using rerkable (https://remarkable.com/store/remarkable). Is it supported by evernote? Will my notes be uploaded to evernote?

    I use Evernote for archiving my ideas and running a minimal to do list. I often use the checklist feature in various notes across various projects. One thing that would improve the usefulness of these checklists is the ability to automatically sort notes when a task is completed. For example, checking a box next to a task would push the task below other unfinished items in the checklist. Some additional scenarios: Some folks might just say, "Well, why don't you just delete completed tasks?". The reason is because I like to keep a record of all tasks, whether they have been completed or not. A poor man's solution to this problem is manual task/item sorting. I've seen that mentioned in other threads here. I don't love the idea of having to manually sort tasks in my checklist, but I would take that over not being able to sort at all. Lastly, a more complex, but potentially more polished system would be an archival function. So instead of just moving tasks to the bottom of the checklist when they are checked off, they would be hidden at the bottom of the checklist. Ideally, you would have some sort of button or link that would allow you expand the checklist and see tasks that were previously completed (archived in this scenario). Right now, checklists is the only feature set that feels lacking to me. I really love being able to integrate all of my data and tasks into the same tool. I've tried breaking out my to do list into a separate app like ToDoist or Google Keep, but I always keep coming back to Evernote because I love using one tool versus switching back and forth between a chrome tab and Evernote. I will continue to use and support your product because I feel like there is nothing that comes close in terms of a full all-in-one solution for data and task lists. However, please consider beefing up the checklist functionality as it would greatly improve the ability for users like me to go "all in" with Evernote. Thanks for your time.

    In addition, there is another possibility in iOS: When you are on the content you want to save, click on share (square with arrow) Pick the „print“ option On the now open print dialogue, select the number of pages you want to print Then pinch outwards with 2 fingers, like „opening“ the preview of the document This will convert the printout into a pdf document. This is open now. Now click again on „share“, select Evernote. The pdf will be saved as a new note into Evernote. The advantage is you get a clean pdf by this. If the website allows for it, choose the „reader“ view before clicking „share“ the first time. This will eliminate nearly all ads and other disturbing stuff from the page.

    +1 and take (more of) my money! I'm using Evernote for about anything written or conceptual and I rely on it for both work, freelance, blogging and private projects. I'm also using Grammarly for nearly anything that goes public. As I'm currently trying to limit my usage of Google Chrome for various reasons, my current workflow is as follows: sketch notes in Evernote research and update notes in Evernote (Copy&Paste) move to Grammarly for checks and refinement (Copy&Paste) return to Evernote for peer review final adjustments (Copy&Paste) final Check in Grammarly publish Cooperation of Grammarly and Evernote in one Interface would be so much better.

    I am with you buddy, start migrating from evernote to onenote too ! 😎 We have requested dark mode for windows since 7 years ago and look they just dont care about our feedback. now microsoft launched DARK MODE on ONENOTE ! microsoft knows that dark mode is really important for us and most likely will beat EVERNOTE because for feature they underestimated or ignored (7 years and still counting proves obviously evernote team think dark mode is just not important) Let's see how much user will started leaving like us and move to onenote just because of dark mode. When total users keep declining, then evernote will regret their decision.

    It would be great to see grammarly plug-in integration or allow grammarly to work in web version. Alas! Evernote uses iframe which stops grammarly from working.

    So, I just played around with changing some of my delimited tags into non-delimited, and learned that the tag hierarchy isn't a true hierarchy in a couple of other ways. Suppose I've got a hierarchy like this: foo foo.bar foo.bar.baz test test.something test.something.baz If I search for tag:foo*, I find all notes tagged with foo, foo.bar, and foo.bar.baz. That's really nice, and it's akin to searching a file system for all files in directory foo (including subdirectories). I decided to simplify my naming scheme to see how it would work without the dots, since they aren't required by EN, and immediately realized a limitation. It wouldn't let me do this: foo bar baz test something baz The problem is that there can't be two tags named baz, even though, hierarchically, they are different. In a true hierarchy, like a file system, this would be just fine. I can certainly have README.txt in two different directories - the unique identifier for a file is its full path, not its filename. So I worked around it and did this: foo bar baz test something baz2 But then when I tried to search for tag:foo*, only notes tagged with foo were found; notes tagged with bar and baz were not. It was akin to doing a directory listing of only directory foo (which I would have expected to be a search for tag:foo), not the full search of directory foo and its subdirectories. If my proposal is implemented, this is all solved: A tag can be uniquely identified by its fully delimited path, allowing multiple tags with the same atomic name A search syntax can be added to differentiate between "search for notes only with this tag and tags like it" (i.e. "directory listing of directories whose names match foo*") and "search for notes whose fully delimited paths match this sequence (i.e "find files in directories whose names match foo* and their subdirectories"). I'd suggest tag:foo* for the first and tag:foo*.* (or whatever the user's delimiter is), or maybe tag:foo** for the second one.

    Hi All, You may have noticed that all threads requesting the ability to manually set a note's thumbnail/snippet 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 the ability to manually set a note's thumbnail/snippet here!

    Hi, I have a same matter as yours. I used web clip and Mac client with Evernote. I am able to use "added remark" on web clip. But, I can't find out the added remark on my client site. I also wish there is a added remark showing on here. (Attached picture)

    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.

    Hi All, I was going to open a feature request for this exact feature. I've been wanting this for a while and this feature will make my workflow so much smoother. No more scrolling up and down. When I start a new customer project, I create a note for it. Then I start adding sections to that one note separated by a horizontal bar and a title. A note can become pretty huge. It would be awesome if I can mark the title as a header and then at the top of the note automatically create a table of contents of that note. Just like in Word or Google Docs. Please add this feature. I've been paying for Evernote for years now and am a huge advocate at my work. Please listen to your customers. - Bobby

    This is a very, very, long-standing HTML feature, and oh so very useful for long notes. Two features I see essential for long (more than one page/screen) notes: Anchors/bookmarks Collapsible sections Both have been available in web pages since the early days of the web (late 1990's). ATTN: Evernote/ @Jackolicious, @SoftwareMarcus, @Justin Street: Come on, this is the very definition of productivity!

    This was bothering me too! But, good news: If you right-click anywhere in a note and mouse over 'Spelling and Grammar,' there should be an option titled 'Correct Spelling Automatically.' If you uncheck that, it should stop autocorrecting. Happy typing! PS - I've only done this on a Mac, so no word on whether it would work the same on a PC. If anyone could confirm, that would be great!
