    Welcome to "Whose Evernote Is It", where the marginally-useful features are made up on the spot and the votes for the relevant ones don't matter!

    Instead of a complete uninstall and reinstall I tried a repair on Foxit Phantom PDF and, lo and behold, the 'Print to Evernote' icon has reappeared. Thanks everybody for your contributions.

    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!

    I use Evernote extensively on my Mac, iPad Pro, and iPhone. We use shared notebooks in my office and I have a ScanSnap Evernote Edition sitting on my desk. (I even have Evernote desk accessories sitting next to the scanner.) I'm pretty well immersed in the world of Evernote. However, I've found myself turning to other tools, most recently OneNote, with greater frequency. The main issue, and it is a big one for me, is the fragmented and inferior support for note taking and PDF editing in Evernote. I use my iPad Pro with Apple Pencil extensively. There are some great Pencil-compatible apps for iOS, including Notability, PDF Expert, and OneNote. Evernote, on the other hand, is stuck with a strange and fragmented approach: PDFs can by opened using the "Annotate" tool in Evernote, which I think is built around the remnants of Skitch. It's fine for adding arrows and icons, but terrible (unusable) for handwritten notes on PDFs. It really can't be used for anything more than simple highlighting -- certainly not detailed annotation or note taking. Drawings and notes can be added to an Evernote Note directly through the handwriting tool, but this simply inserts an image into the note. There's no way to use this tool to take notes over multiple pages, or to use it for annotation as far as I can tell. I've also found it to the buggy, with full pages of notes lost if you switch away from Evernote to another app before saving the image and returning to the normal notes view. I will say that that, though the tool is very limited, with very few options, the Pencil support works well and writing is fluid. This tool seems to have the most potential for future development. Finally, there is Penultimate -- a separate app I want to love but is just too buggy, too limited, and too walled off from the rest of Evernote to be truly useful. Again, no support for importing PDFs/annotation, yet another approach to handwriting, and, though the Penultimate notes live in Evernote, nothing can be done with them in the main app. Why, at this stage, would Evernote have three separate, incompatible and incongruous approaches to annotation/note taking, none of which begin to match the functionality of some of the other apps named? Attached PDFs can certainly be opened in other apps, such as PDF Expert, but there is no way to get the annotated PDFs back into an Evernote note without deleting the original attachment and reattaching the PDF. That's cumbersome, and annotation seems like pretty basic functionality that Evernote should offer. Evernote certainly has some broader advantages over OneNote, but really needs to explore something like the "canvas" style approach used by OneNote. The ability to "print" PDFs to a OneNote page and then markup the document itself and take notes/add text/etc. all on one page is invaluable. I've pretty much switched all note taking/PDF annotation to OneNote, with Evernote still used for project management and other organizational needs, which leaves me with my own fragmentation. Maybe I'm missing something in Evernote's approach, but I'm a longtime user that's completely frustrated with Evernote's inferior support for annotation and handwritten notes.

    Evernote Wizards. Please, give us a dark theme. My eyes are bleeding with how bright your default theme is. (both web & desktop) No suprise, it is mostly white. A great choice for clean design, but ultimately a fail for intensive use. Please, give us a dark theme. Best Regards, Your Paying Customer

    I love the new code block feature, however spell check automatically changes a lot of my code when typing. I don't mind all of the red underlining but's hard to tell if code has been automatically changed on my mac. If there was an option to disable spell check inside of code blocks it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Nick

    Hey folks of Evernote, I just switched to Evernote this week. Used and tried it several times but so far I focused on Google's Keep. Now I noticed the new layout and I must say you really took 10 steps backwards in terms of user experience. With Evernote you can handle hundreds of notes easily (at least you could). But with the new layout you can just see like 8 notes in the general notes view. Even for viewing my notebooks I have to scroll pages without any orientation. How can you seriously introduce something so confusing when you aim at increasing productivity? I would guess that some folks like it. However I would also bet that many/ most don't approve with the change. It is nothing against the layout itself, but rather about the customization you offer. And that customazition equals ZERO. Why don't you offer different layouts (like Google Mail) where the user can choose from or even customize his/ her own? I cant even create a table with more than 6 columns (like for weekdays) anymore. That feels like a really bad joke! The old layout looks out dated, but at least it is functional. Hopefully you consider this. If the new version replaces the old one I will jump ship! cheers -Manuel

    In order to use Evernote for eg. "bill archive purposes" it would be nice to have a sequentiell note numbering field in the "info section" of the singel note - Also a sort criteria for Numbering in note overview. automatics every time a new note is added to a notebooka sequentiell number is added to the note header(probobly in a range start to spacify for each indivisual notebook)where can the numbering be seen within the header info (mit editable)in front of each note (in overview / mit editable)edit-ability at a later time the number can be post-editedhow?go to "notes overview"go to "edit (new) sort by number" functionnotes can be dragged (up, down)by drag, drop handels when leaving "edit (new) sort by number"the numbers are changed within notes. This funktion easens the sequentiell numbering of notes and adds another sort criteria that can be changed manually on request (later)

    Hello, The Evernote User Experience Research team would like your input! Would you take this short survey to tell us how you use bullet lists, numbered lists, and checklists in Evernote or other text editors / word processing apps? https://goo.gl/forms/lBMX4odCkv0fvRNh1 Many thanks! Approx. time to complete = 3 minutes

    You'd really hope that this would be important to them. I've removed my payment information and won't renew with them for this very reason. It's ridiculous to have the forum and have Evernote not acknowledge their user base at all in this regard. I can only surmise that other threads get about the same amount of attention. It gives the impression that they really do not care ... and, in an ongoing, prolonged type of indifference to these requests. It may be that Evernote does not want as clients, anyone who wants any difference in features or expanded flexibility beyond what they have made available. If this is the case, maybe they ought to just tell us that they don't want our business if we don't want exactly what they're pumping out. *shrug .. maybe their silence is saying just that. To quote The Clash (and recent media adverts).. "..Should I stay or should I Go.." I think I'll go. (but, will check back here anyway). My best to all of you in the same boat. Maybe, one day .. if they notice it affecting their bank accounts they'll pay better attention to their customers. ...bye.

    @GARY3733, welcome to the Forums! Passcode lock in Evernote is only available for mobile devices. A best practice would be to sign out of the Evernote application when you are finished using it as @DTLow already pointed out. You can direct this to the following threads as a feature request: I hope that helps!

    I already have cloud-calendar overload. My law-firm calendar syncs to Outlook, which syncs to Google, which syncs with my wife's Google calendar. If I want to see what I have to do today -- just me, not my associates, not my family, just whether I have a court appearance or a filing deadline that could get me sanctioned if I miss -- I have to wade through sometimes dozens of other events. Including three duplicate reminders for every holiday. So no, I don't want another cloud calendar. I want a calendar that's just for me. And I like having that calendar in Evernote because I can link to my notes -- e.g., if I have a filing deadline, I can link to the document I have to file, or to the court order that set the deadline.

    I think in Windows, Ctrl+click to select one-by-one is the standard. Rogue applications may also support Alt+Click, File Explorer sure doesn't...

    This has been the issue from the start. Forum posts from EN employees have consistently referenced the policy as two concurrent devices, log out of one to activate another. The marketing on the other hand has made it seem like two devices period. Poor communications on a good day, questionable and manipulative marketing on a bad day, IMO.

    That's a beta build issue as far as I know. I was running the same build and got that exact message on four different applications. Make sure you're updated on the latest build as one came out this week and it should go away. At least it did for me. Now the beta just drops my wifi lol.

    Hehehe! The 'manufacturer' is Foxit Software Inc. I have Foxit Phantom PDF installed on each device. I have sent in a support ticket to Foxit asking for confirmation that it is their driver and how I can retrieve it for my laptop. Nothing comes up on their website or forum. I'll report back when I receive a reply.

    @BSR, I followed all the steps listed including permanent deletion of referenced note from trash. I attached the PDF file in a new note and let the Evernote sync the file before annotating. I then clicked on Annotate (which opened the file in a separate window as it usually does) and Evernote crashed again on deleting the third page. Evernote crashes only on deleting 3 pages. @gazumped, you're right, it did not occur to me that the file would be uploaded again and again after each edit. I will make use of the Drive integration. Thank you for taking the time to point this out!

    In Windows, when I let EN OCR a document and then I search for a string of words in that document, I find that the words are not highlighted in the pdf view. If I let ScanSnap do the OCR, a search for that same string of words will show as highlighted in the pdf view. I can quickly use the arrows to page through the document to see what I need without having to double click to load Acrobat and then do a ctrl-f there to find what I'm searching for.

    Hi. You should be able to change the text color if you wish see the a on the note edit bar. The numbers stay black though... Edit: (afterthought) - You could add a table cell to contain the list. Create that in a word processor and copy/ paste across, then you can uuse whatever color options the word-processor supports.

    Right on the money. You have the ability to de-crypt encrypted content on the Web version, however, to encrypt the content, you will need to use the desktop application for either a Mac or Windows computer.

    This is a good point, the ScanSnap scanner is designed and optimized to easily integrate with Evernote and in that case the recommendation to turn off the character recognition on the scanner side would not be as applicable. Everyone has their own workflow and can scan and add their PDFs to Evernote in the manner that works best for them, this goes without saying. If you are scanning PDFs using a non ScanSnap third party scanner and want individual search terms highlighted in the search results, my recommendation would still be to let Evernote perform the character recognition. Thanks for bringing this up!

    Also a feature request too, if possible. can it be made so the folding of the Reminders can be turned off? I use a hotkey and ENSCRIPT to view my agenda (reminders) and it's annoying that they are folded down all the time when i want to see them

    PDF's can be tricky. One quick note - if you look at a note property and see that it has not been indexed, that can be a bit misleading. Images are indexed; PDF's go through a separate process. They will not always show as indexed in the properties. Only images are indexed. With PDFs, There are two types; some PDF's are OCR'ed when created (this is often the case with PDF's that are scanned in via a scanner. The settings can either do a normal PDF or a PDF where the text has been OCR'ed. If Evernote receives a note with a PDF that has been OCR'd already, then we will merely add the PDF and use the OCR data for indexing. If a PDF comes in without that OCR data, Evernote will run it through a process that does index it and pick out keywords. When Evernote processes the notes in this fashion, it will also highlight individual works in the When you search in the PDF. All of this can create confusion when accessing, searching contents of PDF's. If your process creates a lot of scanned PDFs, I would set up the scanner to not OCR while scanning. Then Evernote will do the scanning when the note is created.

    Hi there @fortes.ufrrj@gmail.com, welcome to the Forums! Would you please log into your account from a desktop or laptop computer's web browser at evernote.com? Do all of your notes appear properly on the web? If so, I would like to try the following process to force the Mac application to pull all of your notes from the servers. Open Evernote for Mac Hold Option+Shift on your keyboard Click the sync wheel Please note that this process may take longer than a normal sync Let me know how this works out for you!

    Hi @ChiragC, welcome to the Forums! There is not a way to delete multiple pages in a PDF in annotation mode. I would submit this as a feature request in our Product Feedback forum here: Mac Product Feedback Regarding the application crashing while you are deleting pages in Annotation Mode, I would like to have you try recreating the note. Sometimes there may be an underlying code error in a particular note which can cause issues. First, make sure the PDF is saved to your desktop, then follow these steps: 1. Copy and paste any text or other content out of the referenced note into a new note 2. Delete the referenced note 3. Go to your 'Trash' notebook at the bottom of your notebooks list and delete the note from there so it's entirely removed from your account 4. Sync Evernote Now re-attach the PDF to the newly created note. Does the issue persist after doing so? Let me know how this goes, if the issue persists I will send additional steps for troubleshooting this. I look forward to your response!

    Hi @Isadore Braun, I have followed up with our development team on this and this is actually by design. The expected behavior is that the Quick Note saved with the Evernote Helper will retain the first line as a title so you don't have to go back in, find the note, and retitle it. I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any additional questions!

    Hi Mark, I have gotten confirmation from our development team that this is indeed by design. Wish I had some better news to give you. However, I recommend for anyone else who would like to see this implemented to up-vote this idea using the 'up arrow at the top of the post so our devs know how many of our users want this feature in the Mac version of Evernote. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

    You guys made the decision to move to Chrome for your new editor, not Google or Samsung. Crippling a major workflow for users in this fashion and telling people it's up to Google to support it is meh. Google didn't break it, it was your choice. Between this, the new device limits and other annoying issues, it looks like it's time to just move over to OneNote finally. Sigh.

    You might get a better response in an IOS forum, instead of the Mac forum. afaik There are no table features in the IOS platform. We can use tables if they're already in a note. I keep a set of templates to add tables on my iPad I am able to use the web version on my iPad. When you get that not-available prompt on the mobile web site, hold down the refresh button (circle arrow at the end of the address) and switch to the desktop site

    For me, you guys were doing it right with the first version where you had the same set up view as you did on the desktop. Perhaps add the F10 and F11 (in Windows) to the web version so if we wanted to hide the left and note panels, we could. I believe that the web version needs to be comparable to the desktop, if possible. The fact that I can't filter through my tags and 'drill down' through them like I can on the desktop makes using the web version pointless for me. My brother who just recently started using Evernote started off with the web version and that's all he knew until I showed him what the desktop version could do and he was wondering why he was still using the web version. I actually wouldn't mind using the web version alone but it's just not comparable to the desktop. When the second version came out of beta a year or two ago, I felt like it came out of beta unfinished and still feels that way.

    The folder move is being done because the old location contravenes Microsoft's guidelines for its use. See https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/app-settings/store-and-retrieve-app-data. Telling quote: App data is mutable data that is specific to a particular app. It includes runtime state, user preferences, and other settings. App data is different from user data, data that the user creates and manages when using an app. User data includes document or media files, email or communication transcripts, or database records holding content created by the user. User data may be useful or meaningful to more than one app. Often, this is data that the user wants to manipulate or transmit as an entity independent of the app itself, such as a document. *Important note about app data: *The lifetime of the app data is tied to the lifetime of the app. If the app is removed, all of the app data will be lost as a consequence. Don't use app data to store user data or anything that users might perceive as valuable and irreplaceable. We recommend that the user's libraries and Microsoft OneDrive be used to store this sort of information. App data is ideal for storing app-specific user preferences, settings, and favorites.

    BSR - The voting procedure you outlined is fine. --- Is there some way to prevent a person from voting for the same item many many times? In addition, please publish all outstanding feature requests and vote counts, say once a month. That would be even more value to the Evernote user community, but, I recognize, scary to Evernote leadership. Maybe what would would be more palatable to Evernote leadership would be a procedure that allowed a person to vote for and prioritize his/her top 3 enhancements. (I suspect there already are web sites that can do this.) Seeing such a list would probably show how split the Evernote user community is on what is important to them.

    I've been an EN member since 2010, and a premium subscriber for at least 90% of that time. I recently imported everything into OneNote as I've used both OneNote and EN for quite some time, and I can't justify the $89 CAD for the premium subscription. Sorry, but PDF annotation isn't worth quite that much to me. Anyway... One thing I find funny - and I'm guilty of it too at times - is how we let our biases play into things. For example, the stories above about how EN is worth it because it held receipts and let you look up old purchases. You can do that in OneNote just as easily, and OneNote is free. You could also save the receipt on Dropbox or Google Drive, or even file it in a folder in your desk. It's not like EN is the only way to do this. I've also seen a lot of comments bashing OneNote where I just think to myself "actually yes it CAN do that", "actually that's not true" and "well, you can, just differently". It works both ways though too, to be fair - there are lots of comments on here in favor of OneNote that don't take all the EN features into account. I know it's impossible to remove biases but if we could pair it down a bit on both sides the discussion would be far more fruitful and factual.

    Hi there @meg.w.byers, welcome to the Forums! Here is a (not so brief ) explanation of why this occurs and how to resolve it. Occasionally, two copies of the same note will be found to be in conflict. This could arise when a given note is edited in two different locations before a sync has taken place. In this instance, the note will be placed into a temporary "Conflicting changes" notebook or the note will be copied within itself with the conflicting modification listed below the original note. You can then view both the local version of the note and the conflicting version from the server and manually apply any changes that couldn't be merged automatically. Once you're satisfied that original version has all of the changes, delete the version in the "Conflicting changes" notebook (as well as the notebook itself, if it's empty) or the conflicting change version shown inside the original note. To reduce the conflicting changes issue on your devices, manually sync before you start working on a note and sync again when you finish. Do this whenever you change devices to keep the notes updated on our servers and ready to be synced to the other device. I think users adopt several different ways to resolve conflicting changes, but personally, what I do is open the conflicting note and the original note each in their own window. I align the two windows side-by-side with approximately the same width so that I can visually identify if anything is missing, line by line. Usually, I will just be able to delete one of the notes without making any changes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for joining the community!

    This is definitely a let down for me. I do a lot of sketching of designs and math notes through Notability. Its writing interface is the best I have found. Since the recent updates I have found the writing function of Evernote to be better but most of my notes/design take up multiple pages, which evernote doesn't allow you to do. Yes you can insert multiple writing pictures but it would be great to have one seamless note pad for my notes. Also being able to change my paper background. Basically I would like Evernote to grab Notability and insert it into Evernote. I know I may be asking a bit much but I figure if I aim high, maybe the compromise will be good enough :-)
