  1. Add optional color-coding for tags in Evernote for Mac, so that a note with the tag "Needs work" could appear highlighted in red in my notebook, while a note with the tag "Done" could appear highlighted in green, for example. This functionality already exists, as I understand it, for Windows, but it has yet to be added to the Mac side.

  2. I understand that Linux is a small platform with not that many people using it, but consider this: most Linux users are professionals, programmers, system administators, students, a group of people that NEED a good note taking platform. If the Evernote devs don't have time for a native version, at least figure out how to make it work with wine and publish a tutorial, I'm sure that the Linux users will be able to configure wine. I know, there's the web app, if it was like the real thing I wouldn't mind, but it's not... Any other Linux users here that would love a native version?

  3. Ive updated a couple of days ago to Version 6.11 (454874 Direct). Ever since, none of the evernote GUI icons are parsing properly. Ive restarted twice. No joy. Is anyone esle getting this? See screenshot.

  4. I have my Evernote set to create a new note in a new window and to set the new note focus to title. This works fine when I start a new note, I can quickly type my title and then move to the body of the note. However, I use Evernote to do a lot of initial drafting so I frequently stop and think about what I'm writing rather than doing a quick brain dump. What I have found is that when I pause the focus moves from the body of the note back to the title box and as I restart typing it appears at the front of the title. As far as I can tell this only happens when I am typing in a note in

  7. Don't worry. Development on my app is continuing but I needed to pause it last year on personal reasons. I use my development build personally on a daily base and I'm very satisfied with it now. I hope to release a test version in June 2017 and I will post it here for participating. Thank you,Andre.

  10. I often use Evernote and the camera on my iPhone to scan images and documents, and then in Evernote on my iMac I'll crop the document so I see just what I want. But when I do that the attachment seems to roughly double in size. So ... a smaller image, and a bigger file size. Why? And can I avoid that? It's not a huge problem, but a lot of my notes wind up taking double the memory they otherwise would, which surely doesn't help performance.

  12. In the meantime turn off Set new note focus to title in Tools - Options - Note. I think that is a workaround at the moment.

  15. Hi @ibrown, thanks for reporting this. This is a known issue to our development team. There isn't a specific timeframe for when this will be resolved, however I can assure we're working on it. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or if I can be of any further assistance.

  16. Hey all, thank you for the hard work you do that has made Evernote such a great product. I've loved it so much that I became a premium member and even an evangelist when the opportunity arises. As shared throughout this forum already, I was very disappointed to learn that presentation mode was removed in the latest iOS version (version 8, I believe). I'd like to request however that this be added back. From a developer standpoint, I can certainly appreciate focusing on features of priority to the end user experience. While I don't know the cost-benefit to maintain this feature, I do

  17. 2017 and I think that this thread still receives comments is pretty telling. Being able to add a custom color to notebooks and notebooks stacks is something that would make the Notebook View less dreary.

  20. So when I hit Alt-P I can click and drag the area that I want, let go and have the clip in a new note. Or hold Ctrl when I let go and have the clip on the clipboard. If I hit Alt-P and then click I get a clip of the window in which I clicked in a note, hold Ctrl and click and the clip of the window is on the clipboard. (I edited my previous post wherein I stated Alt-P and click captured the screen, it just captures the window clicked in, oops) Your EN doesn't work this way? And sidebar, Windows Prtscrn gives me a clip of both monitors on the clipboard which I can paste into

  22. Actually @Flier said: Operative word being "maybe". In the history of personal computers, directories and sub-directories were there virtually from the beginning, or at least as I best remember going back to the early 1980s. I'm pretty sure the MS-DOS delivered by Microsoft to IBM included them. IAC, I don't know of any computers in modern history that does not support them. A mystery we may never solve is why Evernote chose not to support nested Notebooks, which are functionally much like folders/directories on computers. Maybe when Evernote co-founder and former CEO Phi

  23. I check back maybe every year of so to see if EN is headed toward nested folders, which is maybe the most ubiquitous idea in computing. Sorry to say that I see here yet another thread where someone asks about this simple feature and gets pounded into the ground by EN zealots who believe that workaround=solution. See you guys in another year or so.

  25. Evernote works in Linux via Wine! Finally, again! Evernote did work a while ago (with version 5.6.4.4632) and then for some reason the company blocked downloading linux from the web, then they blocked it in the install file, then it would install but not sort notes into notebooks (so I've been using 5.6 for a while) but they are finally 'back in the light' so to speak. Version 6.4.2.3788 just installed via wine with no problems and it looks better than ever. running: Ubuntu Mate 16.04 / Wine 1.6.2

  26. Hi All, I too am very frustrated with this new *feature* and decided to find a work around until Evernote give us the option to disable this feature (although I suspect that they have introduced it to gather statistics so may never will). However, if like me you use Google Chrome this works quite well: Install a Google Chrome extension called TamperMonkey (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tampermonkey/dhdgffkkebhmkfjojejmpbldmpobfkfo/related) Open up the TamperMonkey settings (Left click on the new icon shown top right in chrome) Create a new script and pas

  27. I thought since you claim to be a software developer, you would understand that all software uses logic to emulate real world objects. How the data is actually stored internally is an implementation detail. The notion of a "container" comes from how the information is presented to the user in the UI. The Evernote Notebook meets the usual definition of a software "container" because each Note belongs to, or is contained by, one and only one Notebook. IAC, you are, again, incorrect, at least for Evernote Mac. The note data is NOT stored/contained in a database. It is stored in macOS f

  28. I'm not sure why you continue to repeat something that is incorrect. In the digital world of Evernote (and some other apps), "Notebooks" are real. They are not labels, they are containers which contain zero or more Notes. If there is anything that is not real in the Evernote digital world, it would be "labels". Evernote does NOT any entity or property called "label". So if you are trying to state the "truth", then you are far from it. I have no idea what your point is, or why you keep slamming users who would like to have a more capable Notebook feature in Evernote, th

  29. This should have been a feature since day 1. After I made my ~8th notebook, it got very very difficult to easily locate the notebook that I was looking for. Being able to change the colour/pattern of a notebook would be great, but being able to add a "front cover" (a photograph) would be even better.

  30. I can understand how single users might not find this feature useful, but for our little graphic design outfit with a business account and multiple users, it would be quite welcome. I really expected the option to be there when I began searching, and am rather surprised something so obvious hasn't been included by now.

  31. +1 Every time I see the plain brown covers of the notebooks I wish this feature was included. I don't need to be able to use my own graphic (tho that would be cool), colors would be okay.

  32. What you guys say here is a bit like Apple saying, no, you cannot have music album covers - there is no need for it, you can search for your music just by typing in the search field. ?!??!! People here seem not understanding that there ARE people who have DIFFERENT way of working, and they do need to have an overview of notebooks. What is wrong with that?! What is wrong with at least giving it as an option, and if you don't want it, you stick to your brown square, that's fine, too. ----------- Someone says "cannot think" of any use where you need a reason for notebook covers. Well. Here i

  33. No worries, I understand I did it as I LOVED Evernote, and I actually want it back into my workflow and I don't want to use something else, but slowly I am drifting away. So I hoped that it WILL be noticed if it is actually a standalone thread. Please, if you do agree with this idea "music cover = notebook cover = desktop icons = functionality" than forward to management the thoughts so it is noticed. Just let them know how they would feel about a music player which has identical album covers. Thanks!

  34. Developers! Imagine your computer's desktop for a second. Imagine that ALL 30-40 icons on your desktop are the same, let's say a 40 brown squares. Hmm.. This is exactly how users perceive the notebook's view now. Impossible to find anything without going through them one-by-one, you just see 40 identical "brown" squares. Human mind recognises shapes / colours min. 100 times faster than written words. You look at 40 shapes and you instantly know that the one with a "house" is the "house" folder. However, reading through the 40 grey icons is insane. Icons have been implemented 20 years a

  35. +1 I attempt to do this every so often, forgetting that you can't do it (it feels very natural to be able to customize the cover) ... for me, it doesn't have to be something too sophisticated, basic color/patterns to select from would work. p.s. Have you used the fiftythree's Paper app for iPad? Granted, it's very different app, but they use the notebook metaphor and allow you to customize the notebook covers without any fuss.

  36. I agree - this would be extremely valuable, especially on iPad where fewer notebook are visible at once on the screen. Since we can't control sort order, it actually takes quite a while to find a particular notebook when they all look exactly the same. Evernote could offer an initial set of well-designed notebook covers, and I'm sure the community would rapidly supply many many more.

  37. I've just started to play around with Evernote and the ability to customize notebook covers is definitely a feature I was looking for - I actually expected it - and had to google it taking me here. The people behind Paper seem to pride themselves in re-creating the physical notebook experience of decorating the cover common to students, artists, designers, scrapbookers, adventurers... just do an image search on "notebook covers" to see the vast variety - imagine if it returned a list of all brown covers?! In my search, it was interesting to read about some of the user hacks to set a u
