    I regret to have downloaded the new version of evernote, as now my notebooks are all organized in a list. This does not give a good overview - one has to scroll down + it is an extremely boring layout. The old book form (the little squares) where better in both aspects (going from left to right, it was possible to see many more notebooks on the screen.) My request is to allow users to choose for themselves if they want list or books (just add an icon next to "your list" => sort by => books (instead of only number of notes, etc., names etc.) , and why in addition (later, after this has been solved) do not also work on a version that allow users to add other distinguishing features, depending on their own preferences (shapes, colors,)

    CMD-A the text of the note you want to edit. Right Click inside the note then Services ▹ New TextEdit Window Containing Selection". Then in TextEdit "Edit ▹ Find ▹ Find & Replace". Then copy all and paste back over selection in Evernote.

    Right now it's a multistep-process to manually link two notes with each other. Coping the note link, inserting it in the other on and if necessary copy the link of the other note to link back at the initial note. With nearly 5,000 notes in Evernote it get's more and more important to build networks, otherwise a huge amount of notes never gets looked at. Maybe at the bottom of each note (where the 'context' section is) you could place a little search bar to enter other note (titles) to connect them with each other. This way it would be more easier to jump between related notes and manually add such connections instead of relying on the 'context' feature.
  4. 1 pointというバージョンから、ノートの左に半角スペース4文字分程度の余白が常に入っているようですが これを無くす(以前のバージョンの仕様に戻す)か、表示する/しないが選択できるようにしてほしいです。 狭い解像度の環境で、本来の目的であるテキストの編集作業に充てられる範囲が狭くなり使いにくいです。

    Hi Folks - We're releasing another dot release with a fix to help ease some issues users are encountering around copy/pasting content from Evernote into some other apps. You can download it here. Please help us validate and hopefully it'll provide some respite to those encountering the issue while we prep to push this out broadly in a few days Thanks, Chantal and the rest of the Mac Team Version 6.12.2 Beta 1 Fixed: A fix where text when copied from Evernote and pasted into another app sometimes has additional punctuation and other characters added to it. Version 6.12.1 Fixed: A fix for a crash some users are encountering on quitting the app. Version 6.12 Major improvements to tables! Some highlights of what you can do with tables now: Add more rows and columns with a single click: Point to where you want a new column and click the plus button that appears. Select the contents of a cell by clicking and dragging. Choose the entire column or row just by clicking the header. Drag and drop entire rows & columns. Copy and paste multiple cells: Select the cells you want to move, copy them, move cursor to a new spot and paste all the cells with one click. Adjust the width of one column without affecting the width of the column next to it. Scroll horizontally to view a table with many columns without expanding your window. Hover within a cell to activate advanced table options. You can distribute columns evenly Match the table width to the width of your window Change the alignment of items within cells Add and change background colors Multi-tasking improvements Keep your Evernote content organized using tabs. Create a new tab by selecting the 'New Tab' option under the File menu. Pick up from where you left off - if you exit the app and re-open it, you'll return to your previously opened windows / state. Separation of Business and Personal No longer intermingle your business and personal content in your Evernote experience but still multi-task when you need to. Improving on 6.11 Beta 1 & 2, we've added support for having business and personal notes open side-by-side. Bug fixes We’ve fixed several bugs that users reported including: Evernote does not update business tags list after the sync Pasting a large amount of text into a note fails with no error message An intermittent crash on account switching

    Hi all. I've been getting this problem since I upgraded to Evernote Version 6.12.1 (455453 Direct) last week. The problem is persistent. I'm a premium user. While I'm writing a note in a notebook, there is a sync conflict issue. It keeps creating new notebooks with names like "conflict..." something. I've disabled sync by changing the setting to "manual", but the problem keeps recurring. Its very annoying and making the software unusable. What do I do?

    I can report that the YouTube clipper/feature in EN when using Chrome Browser (latest version) on PC/Laptop Win10 is now working again for me :-)...just noticed it. @BarthSiemens @gazumped

    Unfortunately, I didn't catch any of your response. Since currently there are so many issues being reported and fixed, maybe you should consider opening an issue tracking system as suggested in another topic here. It would save a lot of time for both Evernote employees and users who would like to follow issues.

    Evernote always does stuff like this. They think if they like it, it works for everybody. I love Evernote, but I hate when it goes to their head.

    It felt very uncharacteristic of Evernote to make such a massive and sudden change to their product. I loved the visual notebook layout which displayed information in way that felt very clear to me. I deeply dislike the new notebook view, which feels no better than Google Drive. I am disappointed both in the decision to make such a change and lose such an iconic element of Evernote as well as in the method of rollout. Like many customers, it took me awhile to realize that this was a formal change from Evernote and that I had not inadvertently made a mistake myself. Please bring back the former view.

    6.7 GA still has the major PITA bug where the text is missing spaces, even though the spaces are there in the title and on every other device (android, iOS, web). I permanently corrupt every note I edit on v.6.6-v.6.7 that has this problem.. @Chantal Leonard I think it's unacceptable that this type of bug that ruins note content is allowed in not one, but two GA releases.. Compare the auto-populated text in the title to the text in the note attached. It should not be "uppdragatt" (uppdrag att) and "varpraxis" (var praxis) and so on throughout the text... example.enex

    As someone suggested, there is an option to go back to the previous version but I am afraid to do so. Has anyone successfully done this? Maybe a better option is to switch to another product. Can anyone here evaluated an equivalent product? I know it is a pain to switch App after using it for a while (particularly with multiple notebooks), but it is inconsiderate of Evernote to simply remove a feature.

    This upgrade clearly has to be an oversight. No one is silly enough to enrage loyal users by removing the main "home" metaphor and not even make it an option. Especially when that metaphor is an option in other areas (e.g., when viewing cards - View>Cardview). Please tell us that this is just a silly mistake. Please?! PLEASE!!!

    I love the concept of Evernote but hate this change so much that it will probably lose my custom. I subscribe in the hope of improvements - not downgrades. It's high time the notebooks were customisable but having the basic notebook replaced with a clunky list is inexcusable. A very poor show.

    In your opinion. But then again, you don't want this feature, so... Again. Your opinion. If you have some empirical data to support your hypothesis, I would love to see it. LOL!!! They feel that their system is better for their customers--they just can't seem to convince their customers of this, based upon the fact they have a steady stream of customers who look at the workarounds and tell them, "Nope, won't work." And, yes, it is their design choice. Just as it is my choice to re-inform them of the fact their non-interest in adding such is creating non-interest on the part of their customers to purchase the product. I'll give 'em credit -- Evernote is really great for storing the size of lightbulbs I need for the kitchen, or the address of Aunt Millie's favorite restaurant. Wonderful for that. I enter a note, throw it into a personal archive, and then search for the string I want, like "aunt millie restaurant". It rocks for that. But serious academic research? No. It does not permit me to structure my information in logical hierarchies, archive them, and then retrieve them. Person I was responding to said that "We don't need another discussion thread on this". In short, he was informing me that I was wrong for posting my opinions because his were better. That is why I correctly got snarky with him. In fairness, I think I was overly kind. I learned it about 18 months ago right after I first paid for Evernote and then dropped it. Actually, I knew the concept a few decades ago when I first started using AskSam--just never encountered a database system before Evernote that limited the depth of nesting to 1. Sort of like finding someone selling a car that only goes sideways, and a straight line at that. You have a silverware drawer? I do. That is a container. Inside the drawer is a silverware tray. Nice little slots for spoons (tea and table) forks, and butter knives. If you are counting, that very simple arrangement is already more complex than Evernote can handle, because there is a secondary container (slotted tray) within the primary container (drawer). And here is where the problem with that lays: My research is composed primarily of skimming data sources and pulling everything that might be relevant for a project I am/will be working on. I store it. True, I can tag it as a whole slew of things. But it is simply, at this point, "Project A". So I save it under that tag, and in the folder of the same name. So far so good. But, now I am fine-tuning my research into finer and finer sub-categories. Using a normal system, I would simply create a sub-folder and move it there. Using Evernote, I face a dilemma -- do I simply add another tag, or do I first remove the old tag, and then add the newer sub-section tag? That question might seem irrelevant, but we are talking about... 100 records that will need new tags... out of .. 500. Tagging them is easy--create a nested tag and (visually at least) drag them into the new sub-tag. At this point my records now have 2 tags. Not a big deal. But now I need to take them further down the hierarchy. And further, and further. Eventually, out of 200 original records I may have them nested 4-5 deep. So far, this is not a problem. Tags will do this. But what happens when that research is over, and I really, really want to archive the project, but keep everything in the same hierarchy it is in so I can go back to it quickly in the future. Will Evernote permit me to do this? No. It is true I can add an archive tag, but the original tags are still there cluttering up my working area. If I create an archive tag, and "drag" to it, the original notes are still sitting there in their original categories, with an extra tag. My problem was I wanted to move them to an archive, not add an extra box labelled archive for me to trip over while working, while leaving the original boxes out laying around. So, perhaps I am being dense. If so, please, tell me how to archive research I have done using Evernote so that: 1. It is moved out of the working area so, at least I do not see it unless I go looking for it somehow. 2. Maintains the original hierarchy it had at the moment I decided to archive it. 3. Without me manually going in and re-editing every record. That is what nested folders permit you to do -- take projects and store them in situ at another location. That is the same way projects are stored in the real world, and every other record-keeping software out there-- you simply archive it. Evernote is GREAT for working on a project. It is super easy to accumulate the records and cross-hyper-tag-flag them wonderfully. But when a project is over, that original tag hierarchy is in a place where I am working on my next projects and there is nothing I can do to move out out of my work area--leaving it uncluttered--without messing it up. And therein lies the problem--I cannot, if I use Evernote, take my research and store it out of the way and then come back to it later on. I can create a tag named "Project1" and create all the sub-tags I need. But when I am done working on "Project1" I cannot take it and tell Evernote to archive "Project1" somewhere else--like now make it a sub-tag of "Archive". That might not sound like a problem, but it is because Evernote's lack of nesting folders means that you cannot keep your "working area" tidy. The more projects I work on, the longer my list of projects on my screen grows, and I cannot ever trim it down without simply deleting the hierarchy I worked so hard to create and store for future reference. I mean, I'll give up on nested folders if you can tell me a way to move tags and sub-tags around so inactive tags can effectively be archived. Otherwise, I accumulate way too much structured data for Evernote to effectively deal with.

    I am wondering if you can consider opening an issues tracker system? On the forum it's quite impossible to easily follow the bugs (even with the activity feed). Almost every posts are polluted by useless information and there are also a lot of duplicate issues that make the follow-up harder. If not possible could you explain why not, please?

    If you're referring to the Snippet View in the Windows client, the easy thing to do to pin a note to the top of the list is to add a reminder to it, either dated or undated. In Snippet view, notes with reminders are also maintained in a separate collapsible list at the top of the standard note list. The reminder list is also separately sortable, either by updated date or arbitrarily (my dragging notes up or down the list). This is my default configuration.

    I want confidence in my data integrity. I want confidence in my syncing. I want confidence in my offline access. I love Evernote. I am a premium user and I have been for years. I used to recommend (almost evangelise) Evernote regularly, however I stopped that because I have lost confidence in the product. It is the feature I want back more than anything else. I don't want workarounds or "real soon now". I don't want "simply delete and reinstall" ... again. I don't want to think about alternatives to the product I love. The announcement I most want to hear from Evernote is that you are concentrating on making the product robustly unbreakable. I don't care if everything looks the same for the next eighteen months. I don't care if there are no more features added. What I care about more than anything else is picking up my phone and quickly jotting down an important note with no concern about its integrity. Give me that confidence and I'll give you back my loyalty.

    To much manual labor and notes get separated and as you grow sections you'll need to go back and add the new links to all notes in that bunch.

    Every time I use Evernote and every time EN announces some whizbang feature I am annoyed at this omission. I have a lot of programming snippets that require fixed font styling. Predefined styles are natural for this. This can't be difficult to implement.

    Dear Evernote Team, The feature I most often use is taking photos of documents and saving them as JPG. Sometimes finding dark colored background to contrast a paper document is impossible, and the Automatic Mode (which autofocuses and crops out the background except for the document) won't function properly without contrasting surroundings. When I switch to Manual Mode, surrounding unwanted objects/background is included and cropping is unavailable in this mode. If manual cropping and auto-straightening functions are available, that would solve the problem in Manual Mode. It would be useful too in Automatic Mode as sometimes auto-cropping isn't perfect. So far I've been using CamScanner to take pictures of the documents that Evernote failed to autofocus and crop properly, manually crop out the background (CamScanner automatically straightens images with irregularly cropped edges), then share to Evernote. Hope to see similar function incorporated into Evernote in the near future. Keep up the good work! EYH

    I use EN for different things, such as notes for recording sessions and tracking bugs and features in my software job. I find that I almost always apply the same tag to a note when it is first entered, depending on which notebook it's in (a software project, a recording project, home maintenance, etc.). For example, a note about a software feature request is typically "Requested", while a bug report is "Submitted". (Recording session notes don't usually have tags). It would be useful if a Notebook could be set up to apply a specific tag to a new note based on the notebook. It could also be useful if tags were organized by notebook as well, rather than being global. Then when changing a tag, only tags that are relevant to that notebook are presented. Of course this is most useful for those who have a lot of tags. Thanks!

    Hi there, I'm finding it very time consuming, when creating notes, to format everything properly. I created a page to copy formats from for this: Section Header Sub Header Mini Header Regular Text Definition, name of something, foreign word or meaning, quotes Edits or removed text Side Notes Strong, emphasis Warning Text External Link $ Code Block Unordered List Ordered List Todo The thing though, is it's still a lot of work to format notes as I go even though I have this note ready to copy stuff. It would be nice to be able to set predefined styles such as a section header, so I can just highlight text, go up to the toolbar and click 'Styles', and then in the dropdown select 'h1', where h1 is the name of the style I created. Thanks! Brett

    Hello, For quite a while now I've wanted to have lined paper (preferably ruled and indented) as my Evernote note background, mainly because staring at large white spaces on the screen when typing begins to hurt my eyes after a while - plus the lines make everything look that bit neater (in my opinion). It's proved quite tricky and took a bit of repeated testing editing an image to get the spacing right. I've seen the request made for lined backgrounds a few times on here, and after achieving this following two days of playing about, I'd like to share how I did it for anybody who wants it. Just a note that I use Evernote 3.2 on Mac (personal preference), but the following method works on the latest version too (you'll have to use the latest version to get the indent whichever version you use). You'll need to upload the image to your own or somebody else's server . 1) Download the following image 2) Copy the note link that you want lined paper on (right click > copy note link) 3) Connect your account to ENML http://enml-editor.ping13.net/ and paste in the link then hit 'edit' 4) On line 3, which should start with <en note .... etc> , replace that line with the following line: <en-note style="word-wrap: break-word; -webkit-nbsp-mode: space; -webkit-line-break: after-white-space; background-image: url(**insert image URL here**);"> 5) Save the note, go back to your note in Evernote This should make the lines appear. Note that I use Arial 12pt, which allows for the correct spacing between the lines, though you may also get away with Arial 13 (though I haven't tested this). I've tested with Arial 12 to a depth of around 14,000 words, and it retains the spacing perfectly - it's potentially infinitie but I have no need to go beyond that word length. 7) If you indent your writing (Format menu > text) it should go beyond the red vertical rule. This gives me this: Of course, stuff like inserting images throws a spacing spanner in the works and is something I've yet to combat. I assume keeping images a certain height will keep everything nicely spaced.

    When my notes get too long I split them up into several notes. Then I create a special note with links to all of these notes in a table of content. This can be done in an easy way by selecting the notes for the TOC. Each note gets a link back to the table of content at the top. In this way I can easily maneuver through these notes all belonging to a single topic. Sometimes I even use this in a more complex, nested way. The top TOC note links to Sub-TOC notes etc.

    Hello all One of the most powerful details with Evernote for me is the fact that I can add the todo tasks inside the notes I take. This turns out to be so helpful later as I can just run a "todo:false" search across all my notes and get a nice list of things I need to follow up on. Now, to take this one step further, it would be nice to be able to add simple priorities to each tasks so that I could run a query on Prio 1 tasks. A simple categorization of Prio 1, Prio 2, Prio 3 would already do it for me. No need to make it too complicated. Let me know what you guys think about that. Thanks, Markus

    I am an Evernote International Premium user living in China. It has become practically impossible to get to sync my account. The few times it did sync I was using a VPN, but presently, it won't sync even with the VPN on. I have uninstalled/reinstalled the program many times now. I post this message here as the customer service in China is directed to the app Yinxiangbiji, it is all in Chinese, and they have no suggestions other than "use a VPN". Has anyone suffered the same frustrations here, how did you solve it?
