  1. (This post has been edited to clear up some confusion). I would like to suggest that Evernote implement a basic rich text option for copying of its note tables for use in Excel or Word that includes the note body text. [edit] Right now, if I select some notes in the table view and copy (CTRL C), I can get a very usable table for Excel or Word, like the table attached (see below). It has everything (tags, title, dates...) but not the note body text. [edit] This table is quite useful, but it would be awesome if it could also included a rich text version of the body of the note [edit]. I know Evernote can do this because rich text is basically what you get with the HTML export. But the HTML export is a mess for Excel. All that Evernote needs is to enable rich text for this table list copy. Something like that would be EXTREMELY useful for utilizing Evernote with Excel. (The rest of this post is my particular situation, which may be of interest, but is not necessary reading for my suggestion). REVIEW PROJECT FROM HELL: My situation is that I'm an attorney that has been asked to review 1.8 TB (yes, TERAbytes) of video, audio, documents, and other files. No one knew how it could be done. Even legal document software suites balked at the size and presented very difficult (and expensive) problems if used. EVERNOTE BUSINESS TO ALLOW MULTIPLE ATTORNEY REVIEW: My solution was Evernote Business. I signed up about 8 attorneys in our firm to Evernote Business (which we hadn't been using previously). HOW TO REVIEW 1.8 TB OF DATA ON EB: The real problem was how to get Evernote set up to review all that data. Importing wasn't an option. I wasn't about to bomb Evernote with 1.8 TB of data! What I came up with was importing file shortcuts from a network drive into Evernote Business. So all the EB notes have file shortcuts to our network drive, which work flawlessly while EB is used in-house. It doesn't work remotely, but I never expected (or wanted) it to. NOT A PAINLESS PROCESS, BUT IT WORKED! Creating thousands of notes from shortcut files was a bit laborious. At first blush, it's a simple process: select a bunch of file shortcuts and "Send to" Evernote. Great... but it turns out that EB starts having problems when too many files are imported this way (and we are just talking shortcuts, mostly). I knew I was totally pushing EB to it's "I really don't think it's designed for this" limits. But I managed it by breaking up the import into parts (usually 300 files at a time or so). It has it's glitches and was a bit of a pain. I learned to pray to just about every imaginable deity when I pressed the SYNC button. But overall, it worked, and I got my firm up and running on this huge review. PRODUCT TO CLIENT: Here's the rub. EB is great for in-house, but we need to provide the client with some kind of work product. Excel was the obvious choice (everyone has it and knows or can figure out how to use it). The client didn't need the actual data (who the hell DOES need 1.8 TB of data?). The client just needed our notes/tag for review of the data. Moreover, the client did not use (nor want) to utilize EB for a laundry list of reasons. The question is HOW to get a good Excel table out of Evernote? I researched high and low but never found an EB option for simple and useable export notes to Excel. I've rigged a Word macro to help me clean up HTML exports (which I then copy to Excel), but that is a headache and incredibly time consuming with the large number of notes I have to deal with. And the simple CTRL C is SO SO close to EXACTLY what I need. It kills me that EB doesn't have this.

  2. Yes, did both a restart and reinstalled Evernote. The problem persists. Have contacted the support just a few minutes ago using your link. Thank you for your help! Axel

  3. Peeking behind the curtain at what goes on inside Evernote makes me suspect the long-languishing iOS product is not going to be improved any time soon... http://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/Employee-Review-Evernote-RVW7866361.htm

  5. I second the request for this feature. I use it all the time on the Mac app and it would be invaluable on iOS.

  6. Thanks for your feedback folks. We've added saved searches if you have them to the list of options for the 4x2 widget. Stay tuned for the next release coming soon. We have started to look at adding dark theme options in the customization screens and have added quick camera to our backlog to investigate next. Glad folks like the simple note functionality. Do let us know if you run into any more issues. Thanks for all the feedback.
