    Hi Folks - We've made our second beta of version 7.3 available. Please download it here, or check for updates. This beta continues our focus on quality - we've called out notable bug fixes in the release notes below. We've also addressed the Beta 1 issue where note list columns was not saving its width adjustment after the app is restarted or the Evernote account is changed. Thanks, Chantal and the rest of the Mac Team ----------------------- Version 7.3 Beta 2 Fixed: All Notes is highlighted until a notebook is selected from the sidebar Spotlight Search not Working Searching stop words returns results for notes with attachments Annotating PDFs: PDF indexing failed error Clicking the arrow in breadcrumbs for a space takes you to the backing notebook Certain cases where items in sidebar were unable to expand/collapse due to an exception A crash when interacting with the Formatting preferences pane and the Font selection panel Preferences: Incorrect web link opens after clinking on "Go To Mac Forum…" in Software Update pane Client becomes unresponsive if searching for a term with no results while an image is viewed in full screen Fix crash with saved search macOS 10.14 Mojave: Fix crash with image scaling Dragging image to desktop creates Text Clipping file Dragging and dropping a notebook sometimes leads a crash Tags not displaying in side list View Can't create lowercase tag from note screen if similar uppercase tag already exists Annotating image will scale it back to original size Highlight: editor search highlight is misplaced when searching in zoom-scaled note Annotation window inner shadow misplaced when switched to full screen Can't use forward slash key when renaming attachment Note title and note body are out of alignment Sidebar: Can't collapse / open stacks in the popover (mini sidebar) Notes and notebooks cannot be dragged to the bottom of shortcuts list Improved: New sidebar highlighting behavior when opening a notebook from the notebook kingdom Search results by relevance have been improved - please let us know what you think.

    So exact phrase searches do work in general (this is part of our integration test suite; but if you do find a case not covered by the explanation below, definitely let me know). However, the case described in the original post has a bit of a wrinkle to it: "stop words". TL;DR: common words don't get indexed, so you can't search for them Long explanation: The way searching works is that when a document is created or updated, it's added to several "inverted indices". Each index maps terms to documents and their position within the document. So there will be an inverted index for "object" and one for "oriented", and a search for "object oriented" will first check these indices, and then remove any documents where "object" and "oriented" aren't in adjacent positions in that order. However, some terms are really really common, like "the" and "in". If you were to make an inverted index for them, it would contain basically every document-- with 200 million users with lots of notes each, that's a LOT of documents. The standard approach to handling this is to just not index these terms; this is called "stop word filtering". This means that these terms can't be found by the search, even in an exact phrase match; it can't do the first step of finding the documents that contain the stop word. It can, however, do mostly-exact matching on phrases with stop words in the middle, like "money in the bank"; in this case it will still ignore "in the", but it knows that it's looking for an offset of 3 rather than 1 or 2 between "money" and "bank". So it would match "money in the bank" and "money hello world bank", etc. It would be possible to filter the list of results after they have been returned, in the client, because they actually have access to the note content. So if you want this feature (I can definitely see the use of it), make a feature request for "Filter search results by exact phrase matches in the text, including stop words". Edit: Ah, meant to include our current stop word list: "a", "an", "and", "are", "as", "at", "be", "but", "by", "for", "if", "in", "into", "is", "it", "no", "not", "of", "on", "or", "such", "that", "the", "their", "then", "there", "these", "they", "this", "to", "was", "will", "with"

    Well not happy about it, but... beginning a new contract with new people, tough contract I won't take my notes with Evernote on this one. Not for now anyway. Because I cannot look at my screen for a full 10 seconds every time I want to create a new note or change one. It just does not work in the working environment. Testing OneNote right now. Seems pretty quick. I'll be back... when Evernote is ready to help me.

    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?

    Feature Request: Add Outlining Capabilities to Evernote Evernote is great, but it's dying for the ability to create Notes that contain Outlines which are easily collapsed and expanded during creation and in use. One way to implement it would be a switchable editing mode, between standard formatting or outline mode. In outline mode, pressing the Enter key creates a new outline item, and pressing the Tab key changes the current item into a sub-item. Clicking on an item's action icon causes its sub-items to collapse out of, or expand into view. That's the way the Ecco Pro PIM did it, and something simple like that would be a good start for Evernote. The name Evernote implies a product that takes notes -and collapsible/expandable outlines are a huge part of note taking.

    Hey, I would like to make a feature request for evernote to implement a text collapse, as seen in coding software such as Dreamweaver. The idea is to make it a little bit easier to organise long lists. Simply mark the desired text, collapse it and then you're able to toggle on and off and eventually remove the collapse when you don't need it anymore. Here's a picture I found: http://www.creativepro.com/files/story_images/20050926_expand.jpg It's a really simple feature, but it would make my Evernote life easier! Philip A

    One thing missing from the IOS version is sorting by the reminder time with saved searches. Other than that, saved searches work well. Also, if your primary saved searches are reminder based, putting a prefix on them, exclamation point for example, keeps them at the top of the list. FWIW. EDIT: added phrase for clarity.

    Before I install a new Version of EN I check this forum. For the last months I have read the postings with growing bewilderment, and decided to stay at 6.7 (I think this is the last version before the ugly New Note button). Now I have a new notebook – and since the feedback to 6.13 for the first time in months doesn’t seem horrible, I think I will give it a try. Thanks to all here who are more brave then me.

    Using Evernote less and less. More of an archival solution right now. Fantastic features, way too slow.

    thanks for the info and you are correct, must clear the search bar first.

    Re "neutral bug report" (first I thought you refer to my passive-aggressive and occasionally sarkastic way of posting here LOL): It seems to have become common practice to re-post the "ongoing" bugs in every new release thread here in order to "refresh attention at EN's side" as it is "commonly believed" that EN does not track bugs (efficiently or effectively). I guess it would be helpful if somebody here starts to make and maintain a bug list so people do not have to re-report. But that poor soul would have to spent a fortune on sedatives and coffee at the same time to keep that list up-to-date. Maybe that's why nobody wants to do it on EN side neither...? ?

    I think it is a great idea, this is something really needful and missing in Evernote, that could make the difference among other softwares... Let me do what I can do and I follow you in any initiative...

    This is a known bug. It occurs whenever there is something in the search bar and you try to click in a note. Some folks hit F6 to clear the search bar prior to trying to edit the note. PITA, with no target date for a fix published.

    Over past 24-48 hours the icon to print Evernote notes disappeared from the page (running latest version 8.12.xxx). Thoughts from the community? Thanks,

    This bug is still an issue and is quite problematic. I am also using (307027) Public (CE Build ce-43.0.4829). I work in Evernote about 6 hours a day twice a week (minimum) on calls where I copy and paste continually for screen shots between notes as presenters are going through materials. The two click to ensure proper focus is killing me. I am considering dropping my business subscription as I am losing content I am trying to capture because I have to ensure that I click twice when switching applications. I might as well just use Word or OneNote and forego some of the other features because getting the content in is more important. Evernote Guys you have to resolve this. It is more than a mere inconvenience.

    Why is there always one dude in forums like this that's constantly trying to convince everyone else that the software is perfect, the problems you're experiencing aren't real, and if they are real they're your own fault? Anyway, I can confirm that on Windows (307027) Public (CE Build ce-43.0.4829) I am experiencing an obvious bug whereby clicking once within the text field of a note does not successfully place the cursor in the indicated position in order to start typing (or to paste text from the clipboard, as the case may be). A second click is required to get the cursor correctly placed and activated. This can't possibly be the desired behavior, and it wasn't the behavior observed in previous versions. It's a bug.

    I know this is an old topic but it's the first search result when I was looking for a solution. Accidentally found a way to do this on my own. Go into the notebook you want the special sort order. Click "Always use for Notebook "x" and then change the sort order to anything you want. It will only change it for that notebook. You can do this in multiple different notebooks.

    I've stopped installing and using the win desktop client entirely until I don't see people complaining about it anymore. I'm tired of spending my time wondering what the issue is. I work with software every day. The evernote app is one of the worst pieces of software created for its purpose since a few decades. On another note the web app now seems to have stopped creating dupe notes. (Hurray!) So I only use that. It's nicely designed and works great even in slow countryside (Asia) mobile connections. How did note taking get so difficult??

    I don't understand why after almost 10 years this has not been implemented yet. Also, I don't understand why workarounds such as tags are considered a good solution. Is it that complicated to add more hierarchy levels to the structure?

    I've made a small change to my workaround instructions which explains how to put an icon on the taskbar to easily activate blocking when needed. Here's the link again: http://www.evernote.com/l/ALrsBe2IrjdFfbGIOZYVpxRJAOUnjFZD2f4/ Cheers.
