    Just want to reiterate the point that building the new editor on WebKit-exclusive functionality is a VERY BAD IDEA. Mozilla is pretty much the last bastion against Google's complete dominance of the browser market. You are actively hurting the concept of an open internet by choosing not to adhere to web standards when building you product.

    Thanks @PinkElephant and hi @Farne, yes the fix is very easy. There is a tweak in SP settings that allows for the exclusion of any executables you want, so I excluded all of the .exe files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote With Sticky Password unlocked, right-click the tray icon and click Open Sticky Password. From the drop-down menu in the top right corner, click Settings. On the left hand side, click Ignored Apps. Click "+ Add" and browse to your Sticky Password folder, which is probably C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote There you will be able to select the eight executable files, but you need to do one at a time as it won't let you select multiple files at once. Click Save, and you're done! Finally, kindly report back here to confirm that this worked for you?

    You should bear in mind that people like @PinkElephant, @DTLow, and myself are not Evernote employees, nor are we compensated for being present in the forums. We're just Evernote users with opinions, like everyone else. Evernote employees are clearly marked as such, and do not lecture their users. They may in fact, sympathize with their users on many issues, but large architectural changes are not taken lightly, and Evernote has not chosen to take this particular direction. Despite that, Evernote is, by a number of measures, "doing well", no matter how unlikely that may seem. That being said, there are any number of competing products out there that may suit your needs better. If Nimbus Note, Notion, Bear, etc. turns out to be the one for you, nobody here would feel bad about it. We all deserve tools that work well for what we need; Evernote fills that bill for a lot of people, but it's not the only tool in the world.

    I think that that's a Windows setting, and Evernote just uses it. Try going to Settings / Apps / Default Apps : Web Browser, and set it to Google Chrome.

    Denis from Backupery is here just to confirm that the latest changes in Evernote doesn't affect current workflow of the Backupery app. As already mentioned by Jefito and other members it seems the enex splitting option doesn't affect ENScript export now (Backupery for Evernote uses ENScript internally to make backups).

    Sorry to hear that you are having trouble. I'm running the same version on a far less beefy PC and it has been running fine so the problem doesn't seem universal. Have you tried changing some of the sync settings in Options to see if it affects the behavior at all? If you can't sort it out, it might be good to open a problem ticket and maybe support can figure it out from your log file.

    You're very welcome @Farne! @PinkElephant, for the record, here is the list of all the things I tried that didn't work for me, although some of these have worked for others in other threads who have had similar issues: Turned off automatic Sync Set Automatically save edited note to 300 seconds, no Context Tried using EN offline Downgraded PC's BIOS (as I had upgraded it about the time this started happening) Upgraded EN to latest version Upgraded Win 10 from Home to Pro Optimized Database under the Help menu (press Help while holding the Ctrl-key) - if anything, this made it worse! Removed the EN Web Clipper extension from Chrome Deleted the shortcut to Evernote Clipper from C:\Users\Ralph\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup Tried deleting C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\EvernoteClipper.exe but it was re-created next time EN started up Disabled "Show Clipping Notifications" Disabled Hardware Acceleration Disabled Windows Defender 'Control Flow Guard' (CFG) per advice in https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/110116-en-extremely-slow-after-win-10-fall-creators-update-solved/ And finally... Logged in to 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)

    If you read through the thread, you will find that shutting off some sticky processes through its settings while keeping it running did the job. Since I am not running this SW, I can’t replicate. And it seems this was not the only issue, because others here report they were not running SP at all and still had some freezing. Seems I somehow avoided all that stuff, because my EN is running just fine on Windows (plus Mac + iOS)

    Hi. Send a copy of the email to another address to which you have access. If you have two email addresses, set up a 'rule' on the receiving address to automatically forward your email to Evernote. Forwarded emails (as opposed to CC or BCC copies) do show more information

    Then this is clearly a bug in v. 6.19. @dmitry_bond, since you discovered the problem and have a Premium account, perhaps you should open a support ticket and report this issue. Or report it on the thread for v. 6.19.

    There is only one side that will not allow you to board an Intercity train, reject your university application or send you to a Labour camp - all of this due to a lack of political correctness and deviation from the true doctrine. The social point system is Orwell reloaded. I prefer to get some good ads when I don’t expect them, and have my backups done by the guys up in Utah 😇

    @dmitry_bond, I can confirm the problem. I copied your link into a test note in my Windows Evernote program. In the Web version of Evernote, when that test note synced, although it displayed the correct link, the underlying URL had the ASCII codes %3F for ? and %3D for =. Clicking the link resulted in a 404 error. It did the same thing when I created a dummy link https://www.fooply.net/htm?query=equal: it produced https://www.fooply.net/htm%3Fquery%3Dequal in the Web version. I'm not 100% sure that Evernote is doing this rather than Windows or the browser. But obviously it is a problem.

    After upgrading from 6.4 to 6.6, all my notes now have wide margins on both sides. I cannot find any setting to adjust this. Top and bottom margins are ok. This issue is related to viewing notes..NOT printing.

    Hi, Power user of Evernote since 2012, this serie is the best news in the company since this time. Please carry on, I am not a fan of forums but I decided to join this one after all that time Using Evernote hourly on Ubuntu (web and Tusk app) as well as Android and at work on Chrome (Windows version...).

    I am in a very similar environment, so I encounter the same need. I suppose that "clean and tidy" is in the eye of the beholder. When I look at your example, which you call "very messy", I do not see why you consider it messy. It seems well organized to me The questions are clearly marked, without adding any real clutter The only thing I can think of that might help would require a feature not in Evernote: Collapsible/Folding text sections. Can you please show us an illustration, using any tool, of what you would consider "clean and tidy"? I have been using a very similar layout to capture Q&A within my Notes. The only thing that I do that is somewhat different is that if the question requires an extensive answer, then I generally put both the Q&A in a separate Note, and just include the Note Link in my main set of notes.

    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.

    Yes, @PinkElephant is correct - it's no longer relevant to me (the OP on this thread). I embedded it in a number of ways - none of which ever pleased me. I did this up until our school adopted a new LMS which made it all easier. Thus, I no longer have to maintain a website for student materials. Even the remnants of that original site are long gone. I'm not even a classroom teacher anymore. So, yes, much moves from 2013 to 2019. It is fun to see that the link to the note still works. It's buried deep into some archive somewhere at this point. Not to mention, I'm considering leaving Evernote all together. If I had to do this again, I would probably use a Google Doc that I can publish to the web. Or use the direct link and let Evernote do the hosting. Or use a try to rig together my own Iframe solution to frame up that link - but I rarely have to do that with content anymore. Who knows. Thanks for the blast from the past, new posters.

    I have had the same issue several times now, and each time this fixed it: OPTION-HELP > Troubleshooting > Recreate Full Text Search Index. You would not think ALL notes would require such an index, but evidently it does. It made take several hours to rebuild your index.

    I think that it would be better that when you want to use the highlighter it would keep selected until you quit. A way in which I use evernote is to collect articles from the web to read them later. But when I want to read and highlight the process is select a piece of text and then pulse on the highlight button, and then again and again with every piece of text. Wouldn't it be better to push the highlight button at the beginning, so when you select every piece of text it comes highlighted without the need to push the button each time; and when you finish or need another tool you simply deactivated it. And if when you select a piece of text it comes highlighted but at the same time it pops up a little box of highlight colours so you may want to change the last one you had used it would be the best tool.

    Just Upgraded to IOS Public beta-2. Eve note seems to be more stable on this version. Previously it would crash any time I would open up a note or try to create a new note, now it does not crash as often.

    I have found that while waiting for the fix to these crashes to be available the WEB version of Evernote using Safari on iOS 13 is working just fine. So, I'm still able to update and create new notes use the web browser.

    Hi all - First, Shane's question relates to the new "checklist" feature which was demonstrated in the second Behind the Scenes video on the new note editor. (Hint: if you haven't seen that video, go watch it now, none of this thread will make sense otherwise! I'll wait until you're done.) Internally, everyone at Evernote can participate in testing by "dogfooding" new builds, so we've all had access to the checklist feature for a while now as our development and design teams work out the kinks in that and other parts of the new Note Editor. So for Shane, it was a reasonable followup question to ask me about one of the features we demonstrated in an earlier BTS video - a feature which created a lot of response from the community. Second, to try to help sort out the apparent confusion around "betas": The Evernote web beta - what I tend to refer to in the videos as the "modern web experience" - is broadly available to any Evernote user and has been in place for about a year now. We still label this build beta because we do not view it yet as feature complete - there are a few key features missing before we would consider it our GA web experience. Nonetheless, as you've seen in a number of the videos, the Evernote web beta is what we are using as the basis for our forward-looking web work. A preview release of the new note editor has been available by invitation only (and under NDA, which is why you haven't heard about it broadly outside of the relevant Behind the Scenes video) to a relatively small audience for the last several months. Over that period, we've been collecting feedback and modifying our implementation in response to that feedback, working on bugs, and converging on performance levels that we are happy with, all while continuing to work through the feature punch list which we believe (based on the feedback we have received to date) will constitute a complete version. At this point, the new note editor has been released as an optional beta to a small % of users who are using our modern web experience (the Evernote web beta). So, as some posts have commented above (and shown screenshots), if you are using the Evernote web beta, you may have access to the note editor beta in the bottom right corner of the window. Early versions of the new note editor have also been bundled into preview releases of an early Windows client, released to a very small number of users by invitation only (and also under NDA). At this point, there is no other way to get access to the new note editor. We are not looking for individuals to sign up to the note editor beta at this point. We have transitioned from small numbers of individual users invited one-by-one to the preview into small percentages of the entire Evernote web user population being given access to the beta. We still have a lot of work to go for the new note editor to be ready for broad release; we appreciate your patience while we continue to work on bugs, performance, and remaining functionality. Third, you can expect *more* betas, not less. One of the things I've been pretty consistent about in our communications is that we're adopting a posture of testing everything we're working on - from very early stages where we test design mockups with individual users, through to very early prototype builds that we test under NDA on an invitation-only basis (thanks to all of you who have been participating and helping in one or more of those), through to phased beta rollouts to larger segments of our audience - all of which happens before we go GA on a particular component. We have restructured the way in which we do development at Evernote so that multiple subsections within the product can be driven independently, which in turn means that we can beta different "parts" of the product independently. Our ability to beta subsections of any build independently of the rest is something that you will see more of in the future. It's part of what we need to be able to do in order for Evernote to return to innovation at speed. Fourth, with respect to tags, my Spidey-sense detects the beginning of a small-scale twister as members of the community, with the best of intentions, take two sentences I said in a video and start to extrapolate what they could possibly mean. If there is an actual twister, it's always wise to take cover. But at the same time, we should probably try to avoid creating man-made twisters when it's not really necessary. In order to attempt to defuse this twister mid-formation, let me re-emphasize what I said on the video: (1) tagging is super important to a big chunk of our users (2) tagging is supported in wildly varying ways across different devices (just try Android vs. iOS, if you don't believe me) and (3) we'd like to take the best of tagging from across various devices and make a more consistent, coherent tagging interface across all devices in the Evernote family. What I specifically didn't say: that we were somehow going to rework the theory of tags. No. Not happening. Fifth, one more observation that I suspect is generally applicable beyond this particular thread: if I say that one of the things we're going to focus on in an *upcoming* episode of Behind the Scenes is topic X, and that episode hasn't aired yet, it's probably a safe bet that whatever you can see in a production version of Evernote you have downloaded today regarding topic X is probably *not* representative of what we're going to talk about. After all, we wouldn't need a Behind the Scenes video series for that... we'd just point you at the software. Hope all that is helpful. I'm going to go back to lurking now, and to lighting off fireworks. To those of you reading this from the US, happy holidays! ian

    Ian Small seems to be very genuine and transparent. It feels like he is not trying to act like he has all the answers or everything it great, he is really lowering his defenses and coming out as vulnerable as can be for a CEO which is such a rare characteristic lately. Great job with these videos, it is really creating a synergy among the community and the developers in my opinion. Thank you!

    „Thanks“ - maybe you join me on a train ride from my home town to Hamburg. On the 1hr ride, be assured we will loose internet connection at least 3 times, with gaps extending to more than 5 minutes . This means ANY internet connection, which includes the one of the train itself, that uses all 3 public networks available to make connection and share them via WiFi between the 3-400 active devices on the train, and all mobiles from LTE down to „Edge“. For the bigger part of the trip there will only be Edge, close to unusable for any sort of work and sync. Thus I have my stuff offline on my iPad Pro 10.5, which fits snuggishly on the little table mounted to the seat in front of me, with keyboard attached. EN is one of the iOS apps with a solid offline option, and it will sync all of my work when we reach the station, where good open WiFi is waiting for the login. Happy editing on the web browser ...

    Just a heads up (and I think I read a response to this somewhere already but didn't see it in this thread) that the team is aware of this and they are working on the issues that come with iOS 13. However, because it's a beta it's run at your own risk. Evernote has limited support (very limited) for their own betas so an iOS beta is not going to be something support can help with. I highly recommend signing up for the Evernote beta program for whatever device that you have. I've been a tester for years and the team is very responsive. That would give you an alternative option when running into these problems, although it's not a for sure fix for crashes especially running a beta on a beta

    Thanks for sharing ! Some issues: - Do not start to spend money on a PR agency. Just continue, and spend the money saved on engineers or support staff. - Firefox is the last really alternative browser. They do a good job, you do a good job, and I hope the two of you will be usable together soon. Webclipper is working fine on my Firefox, so I hope the webclient will do as well. - Tag organisation, or organisation in general: There used to be visual tools like Mohio map or Bubble Browser that helped by visualizing the content and structure of an EN database. Both are gone, or seem to be gone (BB is still on the Mac App Store, but it bombs when used. Support mails are not answered). An official tool like this from EN to make the database visual would be great ! Ah and yes: There is a sort of app store (more a Website with links to app providers pages) for apps connected to Evernote. It could need an overhaul, seems to be a little neglected ( https://appcenter.evernote.com/de/ ). - We all (iOS users) hope that there will be a new client to make use of the power of iPadOS when released. More and more people are going iPad only, the pro-series is a very productive tool with tremendous horse power under the hood, but massively underused by apps like EN. I have all of my notes in offline notebooks on my Pro, but I can not even drag & drop content from one note to another. For a start, it would help to be able to open 2 EN sessions in split view, allowing inter-note operations between the 2 Windows. If this helps, make offline notebooks obligatory for this sort of use. - Please Continue to ship when ready. A unfinished new product is of no help to anybody, it is worse than living with the existing one a little longer. And if you want to use up these EN socks I have learned about in the article in the NYT, you could use them when going on camera 🧦 Best regards to you and the team !

    Hi all, We were recently advised by LinkedIn that they are making changes to their infrastructure. Unfortunately, this means that after June 30, 2019, third-party apps like Evernote and Scannable will no longer have any access to LinkedIn data. What does this mean? Any LinkedIn profile information you’ve already added to a note will remain. But you won’t be able to see a LinkedIn user’s details, or connect with them, when you scan a new business card in Evernote. You’ll also lose the ability to add content from your own LinkedIn profile to your Evernote account, or see LinkedIn information using our Context feature. What will happen? Within the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out updates for iOS and Android that will remove the LinkedIn connection. You don’t need to take any specific action other than keeping your app up to date. Mac and Windows updates are currently available. If you haven’t updated your mobile app by June 30 (or if you’re using a desktop app) you’ll still see the option to connect to LinkedIn when you scan a business card, but nothing will happen. Despite these changes, we want to be clear about one thing: business card scanning is not going away. You’ll still be able to: Take a picture of a business card and save it in Evernote Add the person to contacts on your mobile device Email your own info to the person Find the business card later using Evernote’s text recognition feature The LinkedIn integration was an awesome feature and we’re sorry to see it go. But we’re still committed to helping you work smarter and keep your life organized. If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to me directly!

    Hello there, Sometimes, I have to send material to my Evernote account via email. If I don't write @ notebook in the subject line of my email, a note is created in Evernote in any notebook, apparently chosen randomly.... There is worse : apparently, Evernote choses arbitrarily a set of tags that it adds to the newly created note, without ever prompting me. Is there a specific algorith Evernote is using to assign such or such notebook or tags to any incoming mail based material ? Thanks in advance for your kind support, BTW, it has been impossible to log in to the Evernote website in order to send this request directly to the support team, as it keeps looping back to a suposedly log out page...

    Dear Ian, dear team, first, the new openness and integration of users is very positive. No company can tell everything, but involving users to get feedback - like in this thread - is always leading to a better product. Second, I like the incremental approach. Much better to improve things in steps, we all can feel, try and comment on, than being promised a big leap whenever (and often never). Third, any focus on the engine that drives EN is very valuable. For me what counts is the reliable, performant structure deep inside, not wet, shiny paint on the surface. Keep up the focus, keep up the drive !

    Thank you. I obviously not a native speaker. I was a fan from DayOne a long time ago. But it bugged me, that my Diary was in proprietary format and I wasn't able to keep my journal on the different platforms I use. Evernote allowed me to keep and enhance my journal on Windows, on my phone (at that time it was a BB10 phone) and on my Mac. In the meantime, DayOne has been transformed to a cloud service and most of my old gripes are gone. But for those (few) people, who do there main business in Evernote, the YourDay App is a valid and good choice.

    I don't believe there is a setting for word wrap. sometimes it appears to get turned off when you copy or clip from a web page. You can try Format > Simplify Formatting. This often fixed issues like this.
