  1. I am a victim of this too. The latest update did this. Please fix ASAP. It's making evernote almost un-usable. Like someone else asked, is there a way to revert back to an older version?

  2. I love Evernote, but it's preventing me from putting in sensitive content. For example, I can't keep a personal journal notebook, because other people (i.e. girlfriend, family members, etc.) could one day be looking at those notes, especially since they know that I use Evernote often for many purposes. Evernote already has the ability to encrypt single notes. This is useful for things like storing passwords or other temporary sensitive content. But it's not practical to encrypt many notes one by one. I wish I could password-protect a whole notebook. This way, I can do a

  3. Evernote doesn't support sorting of the text within a note (alphabetically) and I think this would be a great feature to have. I have several lists of this and that, and after a while it becomes hard for me to find what I want. I prefer my lists to be alphabetically ordered. I have seen several requests for this feature, but invariably this feature is misunderstood with the sorting of notebooks or notes. It is neither of these things; these features are already present in Evernote. I did raise this with Evernote Support, but they just acknowledged my request and then closed the ticket couple o

  4. Since I installed the Evernote Windows client 6.4 on my Windows 7 desktop PC, the note editor doesn't scroll properly when the note extends below the bottom of the screen. This is very annoying, as I frequently have multi-screen notes for my work. 1) End of page when page overflows screen, insert some blank lines by hitting 'return' key a few times, the new lines aren't visible (they're below the bottom of the screen); you have to manually scroll or use ctrl+end to get to the new insert point. This is totally unlike any text editor I've ever used, and not the usual paradigm. 2)

  5. I got myself a Neo Smartpen N2 (http://www.neosmartpen.com/en) this week, and I love it. Basically, It's a pen with a small camera in the tip - you write on their special paper, it transmits your strokes via Bluetooth to your phone or tablet, and their app (Android or iOS) records them into an image. The upshot is that you can take notes with pen and paper, and they end up in your device. Very cool, and very useful. Even better, it has the option to sync to Evernote. The sync is pretty basic - each NeoNote notebook becomes a notebook under a specifically named stack in EN, and each page

  6. I also miss Editing in Place I suspect this is may be an IOS issue, and it's not restricted to PDFs I have a budget spreadsheet I want to store as an Evernote attachment. I have no reason to store it externally, and storing in Evernote means it's searchable. Because of the IOS restriction, I have to store the spreadsheet on a cloud drive, and only use a link in Evernote.

  7. No prob! To be honest, this is something I miss from Evernote on the Mac. Editing a note's PDF in place with Preview or similar was a joy to use. Really made Evernote feel like a virtual filing system. Pity not easily achievable with iOS.

  9. You have to tell us how to roll this failed update back! Like others I regret I acted so hastily. I create many notes all day long and this is a huge failure.

  12. It's just a folder set up so any contents are automatically imported into Evernote. On Windows, it's actually an Evernote feature. - You identify folders and Evernote watches for files added to the folder. On Macs, the process is driven by the OS, but we have to do some extra work. - The OS has a folder-actions feature that trigger when files are added to the folder. The folder-actions can trigger execution of Applescript or Automator workflows - At it's basic, a note is created in Evernote with the file as an attachment - This can be customized for Title, Notebook,

  13. Since EN doesn't typically reinvent the wheel for technologies that already exist, I might suggest looking into a stand alone PDF tool. Lots of free and modestly prices ones out there.

  14. Hi @macuser2, here's the link to my post from earlier in this thread: Our developers are still investigating the fix for this. Although I still don't have an ETA on when that will be ready for release, I can assure you it's being worked on.

  15. Thanks - I've reverted back to the old gui and this now works. Seems odd that it doesn't in the new gui.

  16. One note: at some point this year Evernote Android began using a new, Chrome-based editor. I believe this is intended to be a step toward an overall improved editor. But currently it has a number of shortcomings; I wonder if this is another of them.

  17. Just go to your settings and delete it yourself. Please be sure to delete all accounts and stop buying all products that also use Google's Cloud Services as well. There is a list here, and it is hundreds and hundreds of companies. Best of luck to you!

  18. Hi. Planning your tasks, or searching for the best way to manage them, can all too easily become a time-sink that majorly gets in the way of actually working on those tasks. I've been there, got that t-shirt in several sizes. GTD principles say that writing a task down means it won't be buzzing around in your head as a distraction, and it can't be forgotten; I totally agree with that. GTD goes on to lay out a whole other framework of task management which you can observe if you wish. I don't. (Actually David Allen says you need to take from GTD principles exactly as much a

  19. I've noticed this but thought it was to do with having the status bar on - the last line of my notes is often beneath the status bar and I have to toggle it off or add some pointless blank lines to the end. The way you've described it I can reproduce this every time.

  20. I logged into to the foruns imediatly after update just to complain about this. This needs fixing ASAP, its pissing me off to an extent i can't convey. Btw someone please, how can i roll back an update? Ive been holding back updating since i saw so few changes, and now i profoundly regret it. I do huge texts on Evernote- its one of the things that sets it appart from other choices. This lack of attention for something so basic in a stable release (im not on beta) left me worried.

  21. Love the new tab support in MacOS Sierra. Still, I wish I could default that a new note will open in a new tab, rather than in a separate window.

  22. Sorted lists in Evernote would be extremely useful. I often need to create a list of items and it would make it much easier to see if something is missing if it were sorted.

  23. They (Evernote) are in business, correct? Customers do matter, I hope. In the traditional American business model, the company providing the best product, service, etc. prevails over time. The trail is littered with the carcasses of dead corporations. A quick Google survey reveals the level of discontent with Evernote unresponsiveness to customer needs. Yes, many customers still sing the the Evernote paean, but often with an "if only Evernote would listen and provide us with sorting." after their praise.

  24. I don't understand why some people (who are not Evernote employees) feel compelled to continually put up a defense for Evernote for not doing things. I see nothing wrong with users who have a strong need for a feature to continue to push for it. I don't know how it is in the rest of the world, but here in the US we don't give up easily. When people feel passionate about making changes, they will continue to advocate for it. An old adage rings true: "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."

  25. I think the rationale behind Evernote is to provide a very good general tool that can be applied across multiple use cases. With a little imagination you can nearly always create a workaround. In this case, you could use a nonsense text string as the anchor and then search the note.

  26. On Windows 8 the shortcut is placed in Public desktop. Go to C:\Users\Public\Desktop and delete it there and it will be removed from your user desktop as well. Desktop folder in Public may be hidden depending on your settings, if so go to C:\Users\Public and write \Desktop after Public.

  27. The problem with that, Metrodon, is that it is only your opinion. I'd suggest that there are actually quite lot of people who would find intra-note sorting VERY useful, including all those GTD types (which I'm not), and all those who use EN to store various lists (which I do) from shopping lists to lists of owned DVDs etc. Heck, Evernote is a free-form database, so a list is just one type of note content. And sorting those lists would be a fairly basic need, I'd think. But, that is only my opinion, just as yours is only yours. I have to agree though that it IS odd that we can sort notes an

  28. Hi, Just wanted to add and mine point to the obvious benefits of basic sorting for many users if they use lists of any kind in an EN's note. I created GTD, or todo list for today, a week, a month etc. Then, with time some priorities would change. That's life, obvious, we need to adapt to progress (regress ). Plans never go as we usually hope. No perfection exists in this world. OK. I go to my list of whatever I created, highlight a line or position of the interest and just move it up or down the list. New list is created in the split of the second. Perfect! Done... But not with Ever

  29. I agree, sorting is needed at the content level. Three different lists as well as tables are supported, but basic products often omit sorting, to me an obvious need. Note and notebook sorting is supported, so sort algorithms exist in the product. It doesn't seem too big a jump to apply them to content. It's easier for me to stick with a product that sorts and manually solve the "notebook" problem with the file system, than to jump to Evernote and manually solve the sequence problem. BTW, there is no export to excel or other application; the best you can do is copy/paste. None of the other s

  30. Does anyone know if this has been addressed since February 2012? I recently ran into the same issue when switching from Color Note for Android to Ever Note (Android and Windows) I too have several notes imported from Color Note that I was able to sort text within the list A-Z, Z-A, numerically, or sort by status, remove completed, ect I would hate to think with a software as impressive as Ever Note that I would need to make a list in a competitive software and then export it to Ever Note just to sort the data...

  31. I would find sorting of text useful. Sorting is not particularly a "word processing" function. In fact, in the early days of WP, there was no sort feature. It is more of a text or list function. Evernote does provide for list support. I submit it is a fairly common need to sort a list after having spent some time writing/development. Sorting text is a well known (ancient) technology, and I can't image that it would be a big burden on development. IAC, nobody asked for a full-blown word processor.

  32. Shrug? Evernote can sort notebooks. Evernote can sort notes. Why not sort the contents of notes? Just a hierarchy. Purposes are identical - to find stuff by looking.

  33. PS Just thought (ouch) that sorting lines of text satisfies the same need that is met when sorting a list of notebooks or a list of notes. It simply helps one to find stuff more easily than if it is presented in a random list. I guess it depends really on whether having that type of information is a fairly common use for Evernote. It is for me )

  34. Thanks for the replies. I didn't appreciate that the presentation of a list in alphabetical order would be considered an unusual feature (list management?). I think of it as a fairly basic way to make single lines of text easy to read. Anyway, thanks for all the replies and helpful ideas; I shall take your advice and wait and see. Howard
