  1. I also agree with the previous comments. One of the reasons I liked Evernote was it's ability to make reviewing pdfs relatively painless. I did have a brief exploration of OneNote recently, but that is disastrous for handling pdfs. You can add the file, and/or 'print' the file as a png - no ability to scroll through the pages easily. Yes, I have pdf solutions on my desktop that allow me to do everything I need, but the pdf viewer in the Windows version sucks now - but not enough to drive me to trying another note-keeping program (yet!).

  2. Second the comments above. They have taken one of the best features of evernote and made it into a very negative user experience. i use evernote to collect multiple documents and organize them in a specific way with context in between. I have a half dozen ways to 'view' a .pdf via other programs on my computer. I don't need evernote to do this...totally wrecked functionality. This needs to be rolled back asap.

  3. I think Evernote is a fantastic product, especially with the iPhone integration. I currently use a program called UltraRecall because of it's heavy use of subfolders. This makes organizing my data very logical. I was wondering if Evernotes has a way to create subnotebooks under existing notebooks to help group numerious notebooks together?

  5. Hi, Is there a way to quickly copy format (font in particular) in Evernote 4.x? If not, is this going to be added in the near future? I'd consider this basic functionality. Regards, Nefi M.

  6. Dear All, I really would love to see a solution for archiving notes. I've been using for 4 years and now I have some notes that I want to keep in the system, but want to remove from my search. As time goes, my search are getting more difficult to separate valid information and archived information. Like we have Notes, Notebook, Tags, Atlas, Market and Premium button on the Mac version, I dream with an Archive button. Every note I move to this icon will make it not searchable, unless I'm searching inside the Archive View. You could even move a completely Notebook. I have many scenarios

  7. I LOVE evernote... can't live without it... but as I start to use it for more than just scans and clippings.... I have the WORST time with formatting in Evernote... it's absurd... it's the type of stuff I expect in cheapo, immature app... but evernote in pretty much all other ways seems extremely mature... so I don't understand why such simple things dont work well... Example Right now I am making a checklist note... (It's a labor hospital bag checklist)... been working on it for a few months... adding things as we think of it... I have a couple sections... each with a new list of ch

  8. How can I disable this systematic warning ? "Change access. You are moving a note into "[NotebookName]". People this notebook is shared with will gain access to the note." Since the last version, every time I move a note to a shared notebook, I get this message. Only way to dismiss it is to click on "Move". Since I clip my notes first in my inbox, and then move them to whichever notebook is relevant - and all of my notebooks are shared, I get this warning literally all the time. This is both useless and annoying. It should have been pretty simple and pretty obvi

  9. It seems that every time I update to the newest versions of Windows, thinks keep getting worse. I am running this version - 6.9.7.6770 (306770) Public (CE Build ce-1.39.4387) Every time I start up windows, I keep getting the "lets get started" display. I click off of it, but it comes back. Also, used to be able to double-click an expanded PDF to open it, but now I have to right-click and select open. Finally, the last release completely compressed my listing of notebooks and tags on the left with a smaller font (see attached). There is no option to put it back to a more reaso

  10. Hi, While Evernote is great and I can't live without it, I find that missing these two features negatively impacts my Evernote experience: 1) Ability to multi-select non-consecutive note content by hitting ctrl+select, etc..., as one can do in Word and most other windows apps 2) Some form of format copy, or format painter. Without this, it is painstakingly hard to format notes after a class for better organization. I have gotten over this shortcoming by pasting into word, reformatting there, and pasting back into Evernote, but one should not have to do this.

New computer, Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.16299 Build 16299 EN Version 6.9.7.6770 (306770) Public (CE Build ce-1.39.4387) Synopsis: The cursor will be present in the Note, and then vanishes when you start typing. If you use up/down arrow keys to move the cursor, the whole note scrolls up/down.

  12. See screencast http://recordit.co/irjaescyyN Last update made things even worse, now it takes couple of seconds to display note content (starts that evernotesubprocess.exe) on changing notes in main window, making it completely annoying and unuseful. Looks like ugly workaround for hiding memory leaks... At least in few previous updates those delays were on opening note in a new window only. Missing those times when there were no delays at all anywhere...

  16. Me either. Just saying an app which intends to provide productivity should do it in all aspects of usage. Things that slow the experience down should be closely monitored. Sometimes that means custom is needed over off-the-shelf, with the attendant issues that multi platform will most likely bring. One should err to developer impact not user impact, IMO. If it becomes untenable to maintain, I get it, but that should be a tall hurdle and the baseline for the change should be no worse than the previous version. The reason I bring it up is because productivity in physical usage of EN ha

  17. Thanks for the report. We're aware and working on a fix for this. Until this issue is solved, please use Evernote Web: https://www.evernote.com/Home.action to access your notes. Additionally you can also reinstall version 6.7.5. This issue should not occur on version 6.7.5 of Evernote for Windows Desktop Web. I will post an update here once this issue is fixed in the GA (currently scheduled to be fixed in 6.11). Thanks,

  18. I'm not saying whether any lag is due to the CEF subprocesses, because I don't know that for a fact. The stated reason they've moved to the CEF -- and it makes a certain amount of sense -- is because it's (theoretically) a common solution to rendering and editing notes across multiple OS platforms, replacing the old way, which had separate (and home-grown, I think) edit/display engines for each of the separate OS's, and which lead to a different class problems. It would be interesting to know whether this same lag occurs on the other OS's, or if this is a Windows-only phenomenon. If so, it may

For my sensitive data, I use the native encryption of attachments; PDFs and office/iwork documents can be encrypted by their apps. >>full disk encryption is your best defense against data breaches I use FileVault on my Mac. However Evernote is a cloud service; my data is also uploaded and stored on the servers.

The first official response from a support guy identified as Anderson A. was an exercise in dodging the issue and refusing to provide direct answers. I refused to accept that and demanded an answer to my questions. Jason C., Technical Support Manager replied with a direct answer, albeit an unsatisfactory one. Pasted below are excerpts from that email: A formal GDPR compliance explanation is being worked on and will be available between now and May 25. I don't have a more specific date I can give you the

  29. Evernote is not, nor does it claim to be, a security app. They take great pains to secure your data on their servers, but securing your machine is your responsibility. Your hard drive should be encrypted and your user profile should be behind a secure login. Most of Evernote's content is in pretty much plain text on your computer's hard drive, so even if you log off of Evernote and uninstall it, someone could still read much of your content by looking at the database files. You should be using a product like LastPass for passwords.

  30. I still have problems with "simplify formatting" and "remove formatting" not working, ie, not working as intended or as on other platforms. (I'm commenting on this problem since 6.6GA, that was August 2017... time really flies.) Maybe they are associated with the changes towards a "new editor", which was started some versions ago. Is there some kind of ETA for when Evernote will have a reasonably stable version with a reasonably working editor again? Is there a recommended ancient version that was reasonably stable and to which I can revert without having to download the entire data

  31. I rolled back to 6.5.4.4720. Normal PDF viewer. Reasonable editor, especially compared to the forgetful focus issue. Besides the introduction of issues, for me, like forgetful focus in notes, now forgetful focus in repeated searches, the lesser quality PDF viewer, lag when switching between notes, and the addition of a New Note button I never ever have felt a need for, I don't really see what the new releases are doing. There is no roadmap to compare to either so God knows what the intended direction of these releases is.

  35. It is really annoying! Pasting in text from browsers is probably the most common note taking method. It naturally involves Alt+tabbing between windows. How can the cursor "disappear" when I Alt+tab back to EN?!!! It gets even more annoying when I am pasting in places other than the end of the note! I keep pasting in and nothing gets pasted. I keep having to relocate my cursor click and paste!

  36. Hi. Evernote's server-side backup of all notes in your account is active for all accounts from the day they're set up. If you upgrade to premium - even if only for one month - you would find the history of that note and be able to step back to a previous version. Not saying that this will be a full copy since you may have lost some of the most recent edits; but you should get everything that was synced for several hours prior to this loss. If you do lose data in this way, simply replacing the current database with a copy of a past version won't help. The date stamps on the backup no

  37. Nearly full agree. EN is my favourite workflow tool and managing simple text notes is the base of all. But the text editor is getting worse with every new version: Ctrl-Shift-V (paste plane text) stopped retaining URLs In former versions it was a pretty fine feature to retain URLs during paste of texts from browsers or Outlook whereas other formatting was removed. Now Ctrl-Shift-V pastes unformatted text (good) but removes URLs (very bad) Why not offering a setting to control strict vs. smart "Paste Plane Text"? Display embedded PDFs was

  38. It seems to me that most of the people who have responded to this lenghty thread proposing workarounds do not understand the use case. The issue is not about searching through a large number of notes. It is about being able to ARCHIVE old information. Several people, including patricksan, understand the issue. We have clients, we take courses in universities, we work on projects--and when they're over, we don't need to see the information again except in rare circumstances. And if one is a consultant or does project work, chances are high that you have notes that are very similar, but which ar

The new Evernote installation as connected and signed into my account, my account had hundreds of documents, and those were visible and sync-able between my iPhone and iPad - but not my MacBook pro.

When there is a long text next to a checkbox the wrapping text should start where the previous line above starts... instead if starts where the checkbox starts... this looks ugly.

  50. I'm using the notebooks the same way I used many categories in EN2.2, as "holders", as opposed to tags/attributes. For instance, I dump recipes into the Recipes notebook, Tips into the Tips notebook, etc. etc. What I'd like to be able to do is have subnotebooks so that I can have say Tips:Latex, Tips:Linux, Tips:Windows as subnotebooks on Tips. Yes, I can painfully accomplish the same thing with tags, but it's clunky for a couple of reasons: 1. When I want to mark a note as a Tips/Linux note, I have to: (a) move it to the Tips notebook and then ( tag it with Linux to distinguish it from
