  1. I realize BSR is an Evernote employee and has insights into the program we do not have. As mentioned already, and confirmed by BSR, there is a lot of confusion confirming whether Evernote has done the OCR. In several other forum posts, the suggestion for non-Premium users was to wait a few hours or days and then manually check using the search feature. With a Scanner doing the OCR, it takes a few extra seconds, but at least I am sure it is done almost instantly. Frankly, I take exactly the opposite position due to several reasons. I have 8,050 PDF notes in Evernote. It takes a bit lon

  2. This is specific to the Windows app, but most of these apply to other OS versions of Evernote as well: Allow in-line title editing in notes list view - After using evernote daily for a year, I still constantly try to change titles by clicking on them in the list view. This is much more intuitive than modifying them only in note view. auto-resize PDFs/jpgs to fit whole image to window - In the current implementation, you have to do a lot of scrolling to see what a large image or PDF is all about. Although they are scaled within the window horizontally, they are not vertically. Result? I only

  3. Hi @Tim Kowal, We released the 2016 Calendar templates in December of last year, but are working to release the 2017 templates a bit earlier this year. I do not have a specific timeframe I am able to provide, unfortunately. I hope that helps!

  4. The new ones. It's funny how many people up in arms about our recent change in price assumed that we don't have new things in the pipeline. Boy are they wrong.

  5. Search text will also be highlighted in PDFs OCRd by ScanSnap or downloaded from a provider site, assuming works is words in the above. I'm with @jbenson2 on this one, my method as well is to let ScanSnap do the scanning OCRing. For all the reasons he gives. In my mission to become paperless I have accumulated 16k PDFs in EN. Thus far I have always been able to search and find what I need. One thing to watch out for are any downloaded PDFs that contain rendered text. I have found for those to be searchable in their entirety you first have to print to PDF, OCR, and replace th

  7. If Evernote has a halfway decent management information set-up they will already have looked at the number of conversions to paid from free for 1,2,3,4,5-year free users and based their strategies on that. Off the top of my head (ie I have no information at all on which to base this opinion, just my mature technical judgement - ) I'd guess that 1 & 2-year users top the polls on the basis that Evernote either clicks with you immediately and you want to get the added benefit of a paid subscription or you consider it worthwhile paying to support more development and continued existence, or

  8. Every few days somebody requests some new feature . And I think it is still the case that most people coming to this page don't really know how this works. I have been a member since October 2014. I remember how I began sending in information about problems with the old web version. They were received with a great deal of interest, it seemed. But curiously, none of those problems were ever fixed. One that I remember very well, and I think has still not been fixed is that if you have a long note, scroll down to a certain point and then leave the text there for a while without doing an

  9. I've been trying out Evernote and Onenote. One feature I like in Onenote is that it sets a printdriver which allows me to print a document directly into Onenote. Does Evernote have such a driver available? Right now I'm printing to PDF, then copying it into an appropriate Evernote file... it works, but eliminating a step would work even better. My workflow with Onenote is to print the document to a physical printer for distribution, then, by just changing the 'printer' I can print directly into an Onenote appropriate folder. Allen

  10. Evernote on iOS desperately needs the option of adjusting the default font size. While the web and desktop versions are great, I use Evernote on an iPad Mini as my mobile device and the default font there is ludicrously small - to the point of making the app unusable. I know this has been an ongoing request from the user community for years and I'm somewhat baffled that such a fundamental usability issue hasn't been addressed already. I love Evernote as a service and am a paid subscriber, but this single issue would be enough for me to seriously consider not renewing. My hope is that default f

  12. Hi, When I open webclipper the webclipper opens fine like normal, but my cursor had changed to the 'select text icon' that looks a but like a capital I, but with a yellow box next to it. And it won't let me click on anything. Tried reinstalling, got latest version. Tried taking a screenshot, but it is not appearing on the screenshot. Any help appreciated as this is very frustrating.

  13. Fair enough! I went ahead and moved this to the Product Feedback thread as a feature request. We'll treat this as the primary thread for this topic from here on out.

  17. This is exactly what i have been trying to get at. To resolve this, i scanned several documents into Evernote twice. Once with and once without the scanner software doing OCR. My scanner is an older Canon P-150 (Scantini). I then put them all in the same notebook, waited overnight to make sure Evernote had time to index (i am a premium user) and then did some searches for words i knew were in those documents. I found that: 1) Evernote was able to search and find words in pdf's that the scanner had OCR'd and also those which Evernote had indexed. 2) The documents which my scanner

  19. +1 from me (Oh, wait..) - I was trying to keep track of the voting threads and move relevant posts around, but there's just too much traffic and often a distinct lack of specificity (my word for the day). Being a Windows user I've moved a few requests into the Windows Feedback area - although the posters didn't actually give an OS - on the basis that any suggested improvement will get mirrored across the clients as far as it can be. It really would be better to have one feedback thread and concentrate on splitting that into areas like Editor / Tags / Searching... Maybe @gbarry

  20. True for products with trial periods. Per @jbenson2 above, an infinite trial period was not working quite as well. But even within that, anyone can still have all the benefits of Basic EN forever, just with the two concurrent device limitation. Time will tell if this limitation increases the conversion rate.

  21. Wow, are you off base! For 8 very long years, Evernote has patiently supported and encouraged free-users. The company hoped the "starting-pointers" would eventually pay for the service. Evernote realized their former CEO's assumption was wrong. The new CEO is working to correct the mistake. Based on the gnashing of teeth by a few of these vocal long-term free-users, the new plan is having the intended effect.

  22. I have a ScanSnap and when I have a ton of stuff built up I use the Scan as Note feature which puts each page in it's own note. Now I do multiple page documents after all my single documents so I can just scan those in as a PDF.

  23. I see Evernote templates here but no 2017 calendars I'm curious about your use for this. I'd think any of the cloud calendars would be a better solution. I use Apple Calendar, and I know Google Calendar is popular. I also use Cronofy Calendar Connector, so my notes with a reminder date appear in the calendar. This allows me to create a note for appointments etc

  24. OK - here's the obligatory totally-unwanted work-around suggestion: ScanSnap (and I assume other scanners) offers the option of scanning multiple pages either to one PDF, or to one PDF per page. Use a desktop scanner and you shouldn't have a problem. The issue with mobile scanners may be that processing power / storage space may be insufficient to deal with the extra over head of multiple PDFs per scan. It's a valid suggestion though - lets see how many clicks you get on the top left counter...

  25. Just my 2¢ here - don't do this for upgrades, just new installs. I think it is a good idea overall, but I personally prefer my machine to boot as soon as possible and EN launches so fast when i get around to it, I don't need it running at boot/login.

  26. Hello @wbutchart, Thank you for posting. The Evernote application on Android offers the camera option, which houses the document scanner, business card scanner, Post-It scanner and standard image capture. You are able to toggle the mode of the capture or have it auto-capture. When you are in the note, it will have the paperclip icon up at the top of the note where the camera option is present to "Take a photo".

  28. Hola, @ArmyMan, Thanks for your feedback, Desktop app is becoming a burning question. When we were building Desktop app, we decided to use the following guidelines: It should work offline it should work without asking Evernote account it should be simple. it should not connect to any servers at all The most important criteria was simplicity. At that time the design was a good match - when you need to encrypt 2-3% of your notes, using notebooks like a inbox/outbox is a good choice with above conditions (Saferoom macOS works in sealed sandbox with access t

  29. Thanks for the message Scruggles. For me, this is the most important thing that you say: "However, we should be telling you where things land. I can make a commitment to be a presence on the forums going forward and will respond to requests as they come up." The silence from Evernote on what is in the pipeline and what isn't in the pipeline (and maybe why not) is what creates a feeling of frustration and futility for me. If that silence is really about to come to an end, for me that is a very big step forward.

  30. I have updated the script to Ver 1.0.1 to remove the unneeded date variable (left over from another script). It has been updated on the MacScripter.net site, and is also attached here as a zip file. This script is designed to work just like the Evernote "Add link" feature: Copy the actual URL to the clipboard Enter text in a EN Note (could be the URL) and select the that text Run the script -- it will prompt you for the URL, which you can paste from the clipboard. Script will create HTML hyperlink and replace the selected text in the EN Note.The script assumes you have selected the text to u

  32. And here's another vote. I just discovered this feature is gone, as I just finally upgraded to ios7. I'm almost wishing I hadn't, as I used this feature all the time. I just cannot imagine what could have been the reasoning behind completely removing this functionality, with no explanation. It's infuriating.

  33. Is there any chance of this feature being added back? I really miss it on iOS, and it's a shame that such a basic feature has gone missing. In my opinion the iOS 7 version of the app has gotten really good -- and I was a vocal critic of previous versions -- but this feature omission is puzzling. Every time I forget that this feature is gone and go to add a link, I end up scratching my head, puzzled as to why it's missing. Surely no one at Evernote thinks it's a *bad* or useless feature, right? It just got deprioritized or something. Add one more vote for bringing it back.

  34. The more I read in the discussion area, the often I find comments where people missing features which have been removed. The Evernote team must have motives to do this, but in my opinion it's not the work of professionals... In earlier days YOU must have found these features are good for us, the user. And I don't think there are users who said 'away with this'. Many people have decided to use Evernote exactly for the features Evernote offers. No one will use all features included but many will use a part of it, everyone for his own purpose. Therefore I think bring new features but keep the fam

  35. Maybe an oversight. Maybe a feature that has been removed. Maybe a feature that will be added later. I am afraid Evernote doesn't usually share their roadmap (the developers will occasionally hint or commit to some things, but it is uncommon), so we cannot know as users. This is a simple and basic feature and I do not understand why they would remove this. Bring it back please! I don't know how simple or basic it is, but I can say (as I always do with updates that remove features) that I recommend Evernote doesn't remove features arbitrarily like this, because it undermines confidence in the a

  36. 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
