    Anyone have tips on how to get out of Evernote. I've absolutely hit the wall of tolerance for the tool. The interface gets worse with every update, and my team is about to explode with frustration. Any thoughts on how to get out? I'd like to be able to export into something useful, but the XML and HTML export options aren't exactly easy to work with or useful. (Thanks Evernote - one more reminder that it's time to get out.) I might move to Google Drive, or just Dropbox for now, but I want the notebooks in something more useful. Anyone found an easy path?

    Hi - I'm in the process of switching TO EverNote from Microsoft Office 365's OneNote. I use it on a MAC so there isn't an "export" function, but I can access the cloud drive with the onenote files on it. How can I pull the two notebooks I have over there to migrate them into EverNote? Thanks in advance for any specific assistance. William Avon

    Just make a note with the information that you would want to collect. Maybe make it a two-column table. Now you have a template for a call note. Add tags to represent topics. Generating an Excel sheet? Well, you can export, on a note-by-note basis, to HTML, which Excel can read. That may not be convenient, though. I suppose you could make a note with a table that has rows for individual calls, and columns for each bit of information that you want to capture. You can't sort that in Evernote, but you can export the whole thing to Excel. You may need to use a dedicated call-logging app; it just might be easier all around...

    Just updated today to make sure this wasn't already corrected. Currently on During my previous update on 5/14 since that's the new date of every one of my notes (I haven't had time to follow up or look into this until today) the formatting of my notes disappeared and all my titles were converted to "EN##.txt" - ## is what I believe is the entry number - for example EN98.txt. I've added notes since this happened and the titles are fine. Also, this looks like it's confined to only one notebook - of course, it's the one with the most notes and the one I use most often so just fixing it manually isn't an option. This is on a Windows 10 Pro PC, and when syncing with my Android phone I'm now seeing the same thing there as well. Any thoughts?

    I just tested on a pretty long note, and indeed it did take two or more swipes to get from beginning to end or vice versa. @cistus01, this is a pretty good idea. I would recommend going to the Android Product Feedback forum and posting the suggestion there, where other users can vote in favor of it. EDIT: Forgive me for not noticing that it was already in the right forum (or had been moved here when I wasn't paying attention, which seems to happen a lot!).

    Hi. Skitch is part of Evernote and both are available (at a basic level) for free, so I'm not quite sure what you purchased. When you say the annotations don't save, where are you viewing the PDFs? In Evernote / Skitch or in Adobe reader via Google Drive? What device are you using?

    Thanks for taking the time, friend! But do you think you ought to let the world know you're at the ATM? (U.S. English for "cash point," you know.)

    I don't think anyone has posted anything like that. Some people seem wedded to hierarchical filing, others are willing to adapt to tags. Evernote -by their own choice so far- only does tags. (Except - look at what 'Spaces' can do - that might be more your speed.) If tags don't work for you, it's possible you're using the wrong application. If anything the main argument here is like saying you love Pizza, but you just wish they'd stop putting cheese and tomato on it because you hate the taste. Best suggestion might be - stop buying pizza...

    I agree. Moving the share extension under shareable link was a bad decision.
  11. 1 point
    I have an app extension I use that relies on private link to open in that app. So the copy link is useless, without the ability to open in the app extension. Right now the only way I can find to get the app extensions window is using the public link. Even printing a note forces me to publicly share my note!? Makes no sense.

    It's not just on Win 10. A number of Win 7 users have been experiencing the disappearing and reappearing horizontal rules. I tried disabling display scaling on high DPI settings, but the bugs remain, including the horizontal rule disappearing when you insert a bullet point about the horizontal rule. And you are correct, this issue has been around for several GA releases now. Which tells me either this is a particularly difficult to squash bug or the hundreds of EN employees don't actually use EN extensively or they don't use horizontal rule. Most likely they are mostly Mac users and this isn't an issue on Mac EN.

    No touchpad on my desktop computer, as I said, what I notice different about the jumping from recent betas is that it seems consistent as to where it ends up. No other program does this as far as I know. I could tolerate that annoyance if they fix the sync problem, a serious issue. I believe the real difference between those who see these problems and those who don't, is the version under which a given note was created. I am as likely to edit old notes as to create new ones, plus I tend to avoid creating tables on any version after 6.5, maybe new notes are less likely to show these problems, though I have not tested this. Maybe a full backup and restore might do something, may try it if enough people indicate they are not seeing these issues, though the backup might retain the problems.

    Me too. It seems to be some sort of "auto-refresh" thing going on and at that point the recently added metadata is lost.

    The insert rule line (Ctrl+Shift+-) is behaving in unpredictable ways, sometimes requiring more than one application to do anything, and in some instances pre-existing rule lines just show as a blank line, and sometimes adding one once just adds a blank line, the visible line appears after doing it again. I perceive it may have something to do with attempting to remove the extra space between the line and the text, which was never a problem in the past, but it makes the line invisible in this beta. Also, making the previous line a bullet list can make the rule line invisible. The cursor is sometimes jumping from the middle of the body during editing to the very beginning of the note. The only improvement I can detect with the cursor is that now I know where the cursor went, whereas before I had no idea, whatever I was editing or adding now appears at the beginning of the note. Sometimes there also a strange flicker on the screen while editing, not previously noticed.

    Hierarchy of notebooks/stacks should be a given. Currently the only thing keeping from using Evernote over OneNote is the lack of hierarchy. I really, really would prefer to use Evernote, but no matter what I try (hours and hours of experimenting) nothing is right for me. Yes, I have tried tag hierarchy. I like my notes to be in one place, one notebook, and for tags to be something additional. That is how my brain works and is the genius behind applications like Workflowy and Todoist. If hierarchical tags are enough for you, good for you, but everyone doesn't need to be just like you. There is no universal "right" way to take notes, what is right is what is right for you. A good app offers a variety of options to many different people who think in many different ways. I happen to be non-neurotypical and frankly the posts that are like "I can't see why you could possibly need this" frustrate me. Of course you can't, because it isn't how you think, but can you recognize and accept the fact that some people do think that way even though it isn't how you do? And yes, I have found another app to use. OneNote. It isn't perfect but I have weighed the pros and cons of each application over a few years, and have in general experimented with many note-taking platforms (I genuinely enjoy doing so.) I have found OneNote to be the better choice when I weigh the pros and cons, but that all would change if Evernote had notebook hierarchy. So yeah that's the reason I have come on here to comment, because I really do want things to improve with Evernote. Also I want to add notebooks don't necessarily have to be under notebooks in a hierarchy, it could actually just be stacks under stacks, with no sub-notebooks and only sub-stacks. Honestly either way would be nice if there were just true hierarchy. Also something that makes a huge difference when it comes to notebook hierarchy vs. tag hierarchy is that with tag hierarchy you lose the ability to share things as one notebook. Since Evernote prioritizes collaboration a lot you would think this would be important to them.

    I would like the ability to select a notebook by typing the first few letters. This was very helpful in previous versions of the webclipper. I'm getting really tired of Evernote taking away functionality. I get that they want to do fun new things like group collaboration, but stop busting the basic functionality we've come to rely on and pay for!

    I've been having the same issues for weeks. I use the Evernote desktop app on my home computer (Windows machine) and the iOS app on my iPhone, but do not want to pay to have a third app on my work computer, so use the web version (Chrome) at work. Now, almost daily, I have to reformat every list I touch during the day when I get home that night. It's terribly frustrating. Why can't we get a fix for it? I almost stopped using Evernote when they started limiting the number of devices, and now this issue may force me to do just that.

    Can confirm this mirrors my experience. And unfortunately, I can't just fall back on desktop client because I'm primarily a Linux user and Evernote has no native Linux client...all the available apps are wrappers around the web client and all using Chromium as the backend So, yeah, my interface with Evernote is fully borked until they fix this. This might finally get me to switch off using EN.

    Hi, I'm having the exactly same problem, it's not a connection issue, it's a browser issue. That happens in Google Chrome and for what I look around seems that Google update Chrome and broke some parts of the Web Client, then Evernote team go back in time and revert the Web Client to an old version, because those bugs were already been solved in the past. I'm not from Evernote team and I deduced that for what I read. It's been a week this is happening. I tried in Firefox and that happens too, the only Web Client that I found that still works fine is Safari. An alternative is use the desktop client and apps, but if you change something in the note from the Web Client and save, the note will be broken again. It would be interesting if the Evernote team could confirm or not what I said and give us a deadline for the fix, because this problem really leaves the product totally broken. Long time user

    One nice feature of shared notebooks is uploads are charged to the allowance of the notebook owner (your premium account); you're sharing your upload limit with the family

    I just use Mindnode to make my mindmaps, then export it as an image or PDF and attach it to a note. Lucidchart is also great if you are looking for a free web tool

    Either use the first image or give the user the opportunity to choose the thumbnail. This is very essential to me and many others. Thanks!

    I completely agree. With almost everything I use Evernote for, this is a huge problem. With recipes for example, I want a photo of the food rather than the scanned document (old recipe card). A thumbnail of the card tells me nothing. Same with lecture notes. A thumbnail of my scanned notes tells me nothing when I'm quickly scanning through for something. I want the diagram of the laser system or the image of the protein structure. I'm sorry, but I'm a visual person. I often spend more time trying to manipulate the algorithm than I did creating the content, which is very frustrating. Would this really be so hard to adjust so it's a little more user friendly? Is this a change that is coming, or should I be looking at other options?

    Adding my voice to the chorus requesting user chosen thumbnail selection across all devices. With the new plan changes (limiting my free account to 2 devices when I regularly use 3 but will get by with browser access on one of them) I am so, so very close to upgrading to Plus but I just can't justify the cost based on the way I use Evernote. The powerful text searching is great but I search visually as well. I have sewing patterns that display the envelope back rather than the front and recipes that show thumbnails of the clipped instructions rather than the money shot.

    I wanted to mention that Evernote selected an speaker icon for a thumbnail. There is audio in there but an icon for a representation of a note?I'm a little disappointed about this especially after spending $25 for this oversight. I wonder why the push back for user selected thumbnails? I'm glad I'm not totally invested in these notes because I'm going to cancel the account if there is no plan to change this.

    Hi, New Evernote user this year. I agree, I want to be able to choose and edit thumbnail. JMichaelTX is right though - follow the link to upvote the request. I am only person number 8 to upvote, but it seems heaps of people want this?
  35. 1 point
    Yes, +1 to this request, it's rather frustrating as a premium user not to be able to select which image in the note becomes the thumbnail. I note that the previous thread/suggestion discussing this feature is now closed, after 300+ comments, so no way to add my vote there. Evernote - is this on the feature list? Thanks.
  36. 1 point
    This is by no means ideal but I've found if you don't need the image shown at all, then delete this image from your note then Evernote may choose the image you want as a thumbnail. Like so many others I'd would also like to add my vote to this request - let us choose our thumbnail image.
  37. 1 point
    I'd like to add my vote to this (old) request. Please, add a "Set image as Thumbnail" feature to the client. I can state my reasons, but I believe everything has already been said in this (and other similar) posts. It's basically a big convenience factor for people who use multiple images in the same post. Cheers.

    Evernote! Is anybody listening?? This is the number one issue for me (has been since the card view was introduced). I've started using ember for mac for this one reason alone but maintaining both services is a pain. I'd love to just be able to use evernote. For those of us who use evernote for primarily for images and screenshots, having half of the card covered with a title and text severely limits the user experience and effectiveness of the app.

    Has anyone actually ever seen a response from Evernote regarding this?? Seems a little disrespectful of a company who's paying customers repeatedly ask for a feature - and for years, to be completely ignored. If there's a reason why they can't do it or if they do plan to do it in some sort of near future, why can't they at least respond?

    Yeah, the danger I see with this already is that while the desktops of several computers I use shall be clean, and my google drive less messy -- I'll end up with a digital closet that looks like an episode of "Hoaders" with this. I ran into one glitch with copy / pasting some notes from a plain text file into an ever-note already but then on the plus side, I can already think of one scenario that would have been useful to me recently in regards to having quick access to some PDF files I typically need to find on their source web site(s) whenever I need to reference them, so I can see this being useful. I already keep most of my "notes" for things in a google drive, but this seems to be a step up from that. I read a couple of lifehacker articles about things people are doing with EN that were a little bit outside of the box and it inspired me to give it another shot. I tried it a few years back and just couldn't get into it.

    Well, after looking at explanation of how the "largest smallest" dimensions determine which image becomes the thumbnail, it makes more sense from a development standpoint as that is a simpler approach than letting the user choose their image -- but from a usability standpoint -- who really wants to see a bunch of banner ads attached to their notes in the list views -- images that have nothing to do whatsoever with the content of the note? I am still shocked that nobody has addressed this with users for the last 3 years people seem to have been asking for it.

    I'm a Mac user as well. I've tried too, doesn't seem to work for me either. Any word from Evernote on whether they are working on this? I'm debating finding another program to use as this is becoming too frustrating to deal with.

    It's getting increasingly frustrating that this is not an option. I use images extensively for art projects and the thumbnails are the quickest way to visually identify notes - however, as reference photos are added the thumbnail changes and identification becomes confusing. Definitely a +1 from me!

    I've read some earlier posts about this problem, but I want to bring it up again and also offer another suggestion for a solution. I want to reiterate that it's really frustrating to not be able to choose a thumbnail photo. One of the things I use EN very heavily for is as a database of artists for my job. Each artist has a card and I like to have a photo of them and an example of their artwork. Both images are important to me and to the database's function, but it would be hugely helpful if the thumbnail for each card in snippet view was the artist's artwork, not their photo – since when I'm scrolling in that view it's the style of artwork I'm scanning for. I agree with the developers that the "largest smallest-dimension" algorithm does work a lot of the time, but it doesn't always, and it's a huge pain to try to resize images to get them in the correct ratio. I am super OCD about things like that and I've tried but actually have given up. I'm not suggesting a fancy option in the settings that creates a rule for how EN chooses the thumbnail – that sounds like way too much development work and I totally appreciate that (1) the thumbnail doesn't matter that much in a lot of cases and (2) it would cause a lot of issues with webpage banners, etc. My request is to create an option when the image is selected and right-clicked in desktop version (i.e. like how you rotate the image) that is something like "set image as thumbnail." I hope that this could be a good compromise solution to this issue that wouldn't pose the same difficulties as creating a series of complicated rules in settings, but would still allow users flexibility and control in selecting a thumbnail when it does actually matter a lot. Thank you!

    REQUEST – It would be amazing to have a feature where an image can be selected, and when you right-click (ie, the same way you rotate it, etc.) there could also be an option to override the "largest smallest-dimension" algorithm and set that image as the note's thumbnail. A little background –– One thing I use EN for very heavily is as an artist database for my job. I really like having both a photo of the artist and an example of their artwork at the top of their card. However, when I'm scrolling through snippet or card view, it would be really helpful to have the image of their artwork always be the one to show up. This usually happens but there are a few times where the photo of the artist is used instead. I've read up on the algorithm that chooses the image with the "largest smallest-dimension" (PS, see what I did there with the hyphen? Way clearer that way.) and I am actually OCD enough to try to amend the file sizes to have the algorithm pick the right one. However, even this doesn't seem to work – it's probably me because I guess an algorithm can't lie, but even when I resize the images, it's still not choosing the right one. So my question is – why would that be happening? Could it be that once EN's algorithm chooses an image, it always chooses that filename even when the size changes? But what would be SO MUCH EASIER is my *request* – could there be an override option to the largest smallest-dimension algorithm (which I agree does work at least half of the time for me) to choose a thumbnail? I'm not talking some fancy thing in the settings where you tell EN how to pick your thumbnails – that sounds like way more work than it's worth. I just imagine, like I've said above, having the image you want to be the thumbnail highlighted/selected, then right click (in the same way that you can rotate an image, etc.) and have something like "set as note thumbnail." Please?? Thank you!

    Hi Guru TK0047... that would have been awesome! Got excited for a minute. Unfortunately, the MAC version of EverNote doesn't have Import Microsoft OneNote option and MAC OneNote doesn't have an export option. UGH! Any other ideas? Thanks in advance. William Avon

    Possibly because only 13 users (currently) out of 200M or so seem to find it an issue. We can request a feature, but Evernote are not obliged to deliver...
