    I like the idea of Evernote Market but am not happy that it is at the top of the menu in Android, above Notes and Notebooks. Actually that is an understatement, it really pisses me off. I would like to see it moved down to the bottom, just above Explore Evernote.

    One major annoyance with the UI downgrade in v5 is that as you scroll down in a note, the Note Title scrolls away and becomes hidden. Sometimes I need to refer to or edit the title and now it forces me to lose my place in the note to scroll back to the top - please revert this senseless behavior! Thank you

    This "recommended note title" option in Evernote's settings has never given me a useful result, and "Untitled Note" isn't very helpful either. So wouldn't it be a good idea to have a settings option which automatically turns the first line of my note text input into the note's title? (See attached foto-montage.)

    Simply put I am now unable to use Evernote on my iPhone5 after upgrading to the new version of Evernote. The older version worked fine with iOS7, however the new version -- even the update today (Sep 27) didn't fix it. Here's what happens. If I click the icon on my iPad (mini) running the new iOS7, Evernote opens and runs properly. Trying the same thing on my iPhone 5 and Evernote loads then it "crashes?" and drops into the background. I can double-click to see background apps and it's there but when I try and bring it to the foreground it flashes onto the screen and then crashes again. I've tried shutting off and restarting my phone. It's annoying because I preferred using Evernote Premium on my iPhone over my iPad. Any assistance on resolving this would be appreciated. I just paid to renew my pro service for another year and I'm wondering if that was a smart move???

    Sure. It depends on what you mean by "comparable," though. In my experience, there are very few applications available that are regularly updated, easy to use, rich in features, available on every platform, etc. Evernote has done a great job of mastering its market niche. However, for some targeted use cases, other note-taking applications can be used in conjunction with Evernote or as alternatives. It depends on what you want, what you are willing to give up, etc.

    This was one of the options which makes Evernote so useful - please bring back the option to insert links. I will have to start now using again my netbook.... A little bit of topic but at the end related to this topic - with every new version of the Windows, Android, iOS or web version the capabilities and user interfaces become more and more different - I work currently with all 4 versions (Windows = Home PC / Web = Work PC / iOS = iPad for travelling and for meetings / Android = cell phone) and handling their different user interfaces is becoming more and more a nightmare if now in addition important features are streamlined this is neither acceptable nor understandable for me as a premium user...

    GM, thanks again. I'll just take this as a sign to NOT update to the beta, which I was going to do ONLY on my test Mac. I'll just keep to my standard policy of NOT updating until at least 2 weeks AFTER the PRODUCTION version is released.

    Oh thanks for that information. I was just thinking it was something I was doing, or more likely not doing.

    I think he may be referring to Evernote Business updates, some of which is described in the latest release notes for the v5 beta: EDIT: http://blog.evernote.com/blog/2013/09/27/introducing-evernote-business-2-0/

    Thanks for the suggestions Chris. Deleted 2 new notebooks recently created on the Windows app and deleted the trash on the web. This then solved the sync issue. Will create new notebooks via the web in future. All the best.

    That's the reason for the quote marks – it's a work-around, not a real way of sorting.

    Agreed. As a premium user I have no desire to see a market tab or announcements (desktop, web, or mobile/android. btw, I am one of those who did turn off the ads). It very well might be nice things and higher end prices, but the products seem hit or miss. While there might be some things with the organizational theme, I don't get a lot of what is in there in general. A quick browse of the marketplace turns up socks that cost as much as two years worth of a premium subscription (5 pairs). https://www.evernote.com/market/feature/socks?sku=SOCK00106 Actually, the marketplace makes me wonder if they are having revenue issues. (right or wrong, that is the impression. No offense intended). I have a lot of notes and would prefer a stable company and this seems like a weird grab at revenue. Many of us use EN like a utility in a lot of ways and expect it to always be available like house electric.

    Chris, Yeah, been there. It took me until a couple of years ago to let go. Just so you know, I have survived letting go of those files. Your reload issue is what pushed me over the edge. Cal

    Thank for the help, Chris. I appreciate the value you add to these forums. I fixed the problem by deleting the database from the folder you mentioned and re-downloading all of the content. Must mean the problem is client side and not server side. Very strange. I wish I knew a way to keep it from happening. Very annoying to get a message saying, essentially, "can't sync." Not very useful. Again, thanks for contributing. Kenny

    There's no way that I know of short of creating a new note and remembering to merge the two later, or using the same title and relying on the creation date, or using a date title "yyyymmdd - " to force a listing in order. What you're looking for is 'pre-pend' not append, and Evernote AFAIK don't do that...

    As Jeff states, you will end up with a conflict. As Jeff also states, collaborative working is not the way Evernote was set up. An example of one of the ways I use Evernote and how I get over the possibility of conflict with another user: When on holiday, I have someone who creates a new Note in a specific Notebook every time they receive a business enquiry for me. They are on a 'free' account so I set up a 'shared' Notebook with them before leaving. Once the Note is created by them, they don't work on it again. I am the only one who can write anything in the Note based on what I have done for the customer. As a matter of interest, when I come back from holiday, all the Notes will be moved into my normal 'Diary' Notebook. Working this way stops any possibility of conflict. Best regards Chris

    Hello- Long time EN user here. It's time for EN to step up and provide some actual functionality for the Nested Tags. As we know, today it is just a visual hierarchy with no underlying semantic relationships of the items in the "tree". I definitely see a need for both bconrey's and gustavigi's approaches. I have one modification to add. The ability to select how many levels 'up' or 'down' the tree you want to add to the new note. This would simultaneously address both requirements. I am not a big fan of jefito's approach for several reasons: a primary objective of both bconrey's and gustavigi's proposals (and mines) is to actually add the tags that you want to a note. Jefito's approach would not add the tags. the approach would return all notes that had the 'subtags' in the tree in question whereas I may only want portions of the tree (this is very similar to the concern that gustavigi expressed) I'm neither unrealistic or greedy and would be very happy with a phased approach from EN. Maybe start with gustatvigi's suggestion of adding bconrey's suggested functionality but also keep the current functionality. Then in a subsequent version add the feature I am proposing of being able to specify how many levels 'up' or 'down' you want to include. Either way- its time for EN step up it's game regarding nested tags. Thousands of us need greater functionality from tags. The Taggify solution for Mac is a great proof point for this. Here's the real deal for EN (or value proposition if you want to keep if more formal) Those of us that are advanced users of EN know that the next big thing about to explode on the scene are "one-stop" solutions for content management and task management (email, social (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) , blogs, rss, etc. Contenders like IQTELL, and Unified Inbox are coming on fast. EN is still the overall best 'one-stop' but must continue to innovate to stay ahead. It is my opinion that adding more functionality for tags would be one of those "Kano" 'nice-to-have' features that would put EN solidly in the lead for a long time to come. As we all know 'nice-to-have' features eventually become 'must-haves' so EN could really solidify its lead by being first out of the gate with advanced Tagging. Eventually one of the "one-stop" contenders will search deeply for EN weaknesses and discover this one about its mediocre tagging solution and exploit that weakness to gain market share (that's the way market disruptions work folks). So IMO, beefing up Tagging is a solid, no-brainer, win-win proposition for EN.

    The manual sort feature gets suggested occasionally, and there is existing discussion in the forums. Not much input from Evernote on the topic if I recall. I can see its usefulness for some scenarios, not sure that I miss it myself. I can see some potential messiness with specified sort order across multiple notebooks (basically you'd need to pitch it, I think), but none of that is up to me. @Factman: there's no sorting in a shortcut as far as I know, just filtering. You need to set sorting yourself.

    1) You are likely to get a Note Conflict. 2) You are likely to get a Note Conflict. The point is is that it's not a good idea to edit the same content simultaneously in Evernote. They're not really set up for that. They'll usually detect conflicts, but they don't prevent them, and they don't provide any tools to reconcile conflicted notes.

    Thank you, will wait for the ticket, but a solution could be let us export the note to iTune in future updates or let us copy and paste audio notes between notes.

    I agree that syncing and reviewing of previous notes was something I rarely ever did on my iOS devices, and only occasionally did on my Macs. The decluttering of skitch so that I don't have to deal with it syncing every time I load it is huge. And on the rare occasion that I do need to go back and edit an annotation, I'm fine doing it inside of Evernote anyway. It almost makes it easier to find because I can organize the note in Evernote, whereas with skitch 2.x, it only showed by date created. I would appreciate the ability to control where in Evernote skitch saves to though. Maybe a quick drop down menu that allows me to select a notebook and add tags before I save it to Evernote. That seems like a great compromise for the people complaining about the lack of syncing and those of us who love it. So to sum up all of my comments, my ideal skitch would include PDF markup, but not worry about syncing and editing previously made annotations. The auto save feature sounds like a good idea for people who miss syncing though I would not use it. I would prefer to be able to control where individual skitch documents go instead of Evernote though instead of my default notebook, and be able to tag notes if I need to. However, I do not use skitch with such volume that if I have to manually move notes from my default notebook, it's a problem. I would also prefer selecting what notebook each skitch document goes to instead of having a default skitch notebook like in 2.x. I use skitch for lots of different things. From annotating receipts to marking up a website so my mom can figure out what on the amazon page I actually want for Christmas. I would file these things separately in Evernote, so having the ability to select where they go straight from skitch would be nice. Again, this is my ideal skitch. 3.x has already gotten us a lot closer to this, and I'm super thankful for all of the work that has gone into making this (free!) app fantastic. Thanks for working hard on this, and being open to listen to user feedback.

    Fully agree that putting the market button on top is a bit too much, especially that, as a user outside of US, I got a message that it is unavailable in my country.
  24. 1 point
    Yeah, I noticed this after the update. Thought that putting it at the top without being able to remove it (even premium users) was a little much. Particularly on a space-limited smartphone. I can remove it on Windows, though, curiously.

    . I can't even start to imagine why this essential (basic and simple) feature isn't there anymore! In fact, I can't even think about someone thinking about it, it doesn't make any sense from any point of view.

    This is something I don't understand - other note taking apps, like Simplenote or Keep use the first line of a note as the title if none is entered. But Evernote, on both my Android phone and my iPad, doesn't. Is this a deliberate decision? If so, I'd be curious to know why.

    This is one of the features that has been 'streamlined' away from the iOS version ;-) Let's hope it will come back one day.

    The new version is horrible! I use skitch every day to mark thinks at iOS screenshots and archive them to evernote. Now the workflow for this is horrible and I can not access the screenshots from my camera roll (only some photos are shown without any organisation)! Pauli

    Hi, I just switched from using EN on windows to EN 5.2.1 on a mac. Everything is a complete mess in the sidebar, I can't believe it's so much more difficult to use EN on a mac. I realize this thread is old, but I can't seem to be able to nest tags in the sidebar like I'm used to doing on the win version. My whole evernote-system is wrecked, is there still no fix for this issue? I used to do everything from the sidebar, organizing notes as well as filtering by notebook and tag(s) to find the notes I wanted, but the sidebar is now pretty much useless. I finally found the way to filter by selecting notes and tags using the cmd button, but there is no indication to show which notebooks and tags have been selected. This combined with the inability to nest tags makes it very hard for me to work in Evernote for mac What is the point of a sidebar that is "view-only"?

    Notebooks are not, and should not be 'tags'. That just confuses the differences between their individual concepts: * Notebooks are used to partition your notes into separate sets of notes; tags do no such partitioning: a note belongs to a single notebook, but can have multiple tags. * Notebooks are the basis for sharing of groups of notes, offline note storage on mobile devices, and local note storage on desktop clients. You cannot perform these useful functions with tags at this point. * Because you can apply multiple tags to a note, you can do cross-categorization that is just not possible with notebooks. * Notebooks contain; tags describe. Tags are not conceptually that difficult to understand, given good description and ties to, yes, 'physical reality'. In the realm of physical reality, we have and use tag-like concept all the times. Do your physical notebooks have labels? Those are tags. Do your users use adjectives? Those are tags. Tags are tags. Notebooks are notebooks. They do different things. Let's not conflate them into some confusing blob concept/facility (that really isn't because they are, in this proposal, secretly and magically, convertible back and forth).

    I'd also like to see this ability, but if you use the top or side list view, you can change the sort with one click. If the list views will work for you, then I recommend giving them a try, because they solve a lot of the problems. http://www.christopher-mayo.com/?p=106 On Windows, the command for getting the side list view is hidden. Try Ctrl+Shift+F5.

    Evernote...what have you done!? I was drawn to Evernote via the "The Secret Weapon" manifesto and fell in love with the tagging and notebook functionalities. Every note taking application allows you to store information but if I can't retrieve it quickly then its back to the old Filofax. One designation (tag, notebook, date, place) is not enough. You MUST be able to use a combination of either. Evernote did this really well! Example: I want all the items tagged "Now" AND "Home" and "Me" in my main "Cabinet" notebook. I don't want items in the "For Reference" or "Complete" notebooks. Now I have an EVERNOTE SHOEBOX. Evernote was designed to store EVERY note forEVER but how am I supposed to find the CURRENT notes if my view is cluttered by EVERY note. The Evernote 5 upgrade was a big improvement in layout but please add this feature back in on the iPad and iPhone before the noise of elephants stampeding becomes deafening. Cheers!
