  1. I don't see why people would complain about not seeing a desktop shortcut after updates. If it was there already, it will stay there, if it wasn't there, it won't be even after. A desktop shortcut should only be added on first install. What i really dislike is maintenance. Evernote is the only program in my PC that does this, why don't the others do it? It is the only program that after an update requires me additional maintenance to keep my PC tidy. Yes i would agree to a vote.

  2. When using the Evernote integrated camera scanner, it saves the document as a PNG file. I would like to have the option of saving it as a PDF file. I'm using android and downloading scannable from the play doesn't seem to be an option for me. If you take/scan photos and save them in image format (PNG), you can access your Evernote account in a Desktop and right click on any image and select "Convert Note into PDF". After doing this, you will create a new note with all the content in a single PDF file. But, it would be much better if the option was available via my mobile device. It would be a much better option if Evernote could have this function itself as opposed to an external app. Is there any sign to develop this feature in future?

  3. It would be very useful when using the biz card function in IOS that the phone number entered automatically would be listed with +country code first. Should be a no brainer with cities etal listed as address, therefore making +country code very simple. Note, many of us work international and it would be very helpful, avoiding having to re-enter phone info. *as a side note, the biz card function can use lots of improvement................ lots..........

  4. Hi Folks - We’re making our new Evernote Web experience available for users to try today. What makes it so shiny and new you ask? We’ve spiffed things up to create more consistent design and interactions across web and other platforms. With the ‘Shared with me’ view, you can now easily see all of the notes and notebooks that have, well, been shared with you. We’ve done some work under the hood to improve search results, so things will now be ordered by relevance instead of date updated. Coming soon to a web experience near you: You may be missing reminders and a tags view, but don’t worry; we’re adding functionality to this new world as we go, so some of your favorite features are still to come. Want in? All you have to do is go to ‘Settings’ and click the ‘Use the new web beta’ link. Give it a spin and then send us any feedback you have by using with ‘Feedback’ button. If the changes aren’t your cup of tea, no worries. You can turn back the clock by navigating to ‘Account’ and clicking on ‘Switch to previous version of Evernote’. New Web Experience

  5. This is a nice feature that I noticed got recently implemented. For some notes, I like to put the timestamp (or at least the date) in the note title. Until now, you could not do the CTL-SEMICOLON key combo while in the note title. Now you can. Love it. Thanks Evernote.

  6. http://www.harmonenterprises.com/blog/organize-evernote-notebooks Thought I'd throw some chum in the water for the relentless notebook sharks. I'm one of those taggers who uses very few notebooks, based on access (local, synchronized, shared, offline), not content, but I have to admit that Harmon makes a compelling argument, especially since tag organization cannot currently be viewed on all platforms.

  7. It would be nice to scan documents, etc. directly into Evernote from my own personal scanner. I use Evernote on my personal Android phone, my work iPhone, and my Windows laptop and desktop. Using my phone to take a picture of the document is fine, but it's never as good quality as a scanned document. I looked around a little bit, and there does seem to be a special scanner and scanner app, but I don't think there is anything that lets me use my own scanner. I know I can scan to a pdf document and just load that into Evernote, but I thought something direct would be a natural for a notes application.

  9. I have been skipping releases until today because of this loss of functionality, but today I was weak and accepted an update to 6.14.5.something. When I noticed this was gone, I went back through all previous versions I could find on FileHippo until I got to the newest version where it works, which was 6.10.3.6921.

  10. You know, I think I'll create an 'improvement' bug - we should have something into the text in the import folder dialog that calls this out...

  11. When using import folders, it is best to scan to a separate folder and then move the files in (as gazumped is). Evernote grabs files as soon as Windows tells it a file has been created. Which means we may try importing it before the scanner is done writing it.

  13. I see additional benefits with this process multiple reminders per note not being locked into Evernote; the reminders are available wherever they're stored Currently my task search includes reminderTime:..... -reminderDoneTime:* This could be a text search instead

  14. I'd like to be able to set a reminder for a task without having to create a note for it. I often just want to get a notification for a quick one-off task that I don't need to refer to later. I end up having to create a blank note with the title of the reminder, then find and delete it later. I use a few different apps for task reminders, but it would be good if I could keep everything in Evernote.

  15. i have tenfold friends whom use Evernote and also reminders, none rarely re schedule to an hour, next day or next week. And if that was the case, it's still quicker to use the scroll wheel for that than the delay it causes if it's not supposed to be rescheduled to in an hour, next day or next week. Thanks for letting me know it's not only me thinking its not great.

  16. It depends on what you want to export to I guess. I think at least for Mac there’s a few options / work arounds. It’s sad but I can understand the frustrations. I’m too invested and dependent on Evernote.

  17. PLEASE make "Show Less" on the widget show ONLY the buttons, not the most recent preview. This is ESPECIALLY important if "Show Notes in Widget" is turned off: currently tapping "Show Less" takes away the buttons [actually useful], leaving ONLY the message "Recently viewed notes will appear here"--which is INCORRECT because notes will NOT appear since" Show Notes in Widget" is turned off! (So in fact, it should NOT say "Recently viewed notes will appear here" if "Show Notes in Widget" is turned off!)

  18. To amplify on what @tkraikit said, and to your comment on tags, in general, tags are the easiest way in Evernote to categorize notes that belong to different notebooks. Yes, you can do the stack thing, stacks are clumsy, and they don't scale very well. Tags are easy; and they cut across notebook boundaries, and they're much more flexible with respect to search: you can combine them in the search language (you can do AND searches with tags, or OR searches, though unfortunately not both in the same search), and you can also use wildcards with tags searches. (e.g. tag:abc*). Tags are usually my first stop for solving this sort of problem. I do understand the desire to keep your tag set to a minimum, but sometimes needs must. OK, so there's a third way, which is to use note links to tie the notes together. You could have another note that has a note link to each of the notes you want to associate, or have each of them contain a note link to the other, so that if you find one, you can find the other.

  19. The feature that I miss most in Evernote is presentation mode on the web client. That would enable me to present my ideas to anyone on any device they might have without having to bring or connect my own. Would make me a lot more flexible.

  20. Hi. My status bar display is permanent (unless I switch it off) - have you tried (in increasing order of hassle): toggling it on and off from the View menu / signing out of Evernote and back in / restarting your device / uninstalling and reinstalling Evernote?

  22. For other search terms you could use "any:" to get an OR of two search criteria, but unfortunately, per the search grammar (https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php), you cannot use that for notebooks: This may not fit in with your current organizational scheme, but if you can put the two notebooks into one stack you can then search all notebooks in the stack with "stack:name-of-stack" which would do what you're looking for. Hope this helps! -- Tom

  24. No argument; Syncing involves metadata and potentially note content. The initial offline download also involves metadata and potentially note content. Still, Syncing tends to be low volume, only notes changed now and then. The initial offline download is high volume, our entire note set.

  27. Thanks so much for reaching out to me. I appreciate it. For anyone interested in this issue, I've found the beta doesn't delete blank lines right in front of my eyes anymore, so that's a huge improvement, but I think the notes are still rendering a little differently. At any rate, it solved (more or less) that problem.

  28. Horses for courses with this stuff. For me I'll create the note, with the text in the body of the note with a checkbox, and a reminder date. I have a set of reminder searches for action time. Sometimes even my simplest to-do's don't have the courtesy to get done on time. If needed, not always, I can put any notes re the to do in the body of the note. I also have a hot key that puts _Completed date and time in the body when needed. Some of this is overkill for some to do's but works nicely for others. So kind of same process for simpler to-dos but with different toppings available. In your example, call someone back, the note is a logical place to make a record of the call if need be. FWIW.

  32. Thanks for all the help, I've also discovered that I can 'drag' the pdf 'attached' to the EN note to the 'Papers' app in the dock, which then imports it. This means I can search and store in EN, and read and cite in Papers. Thanks superguru - I meant 'sharing' with other apps, not other users, but I will also think about how to use the sharing function too.

  33. While I get the frustration that this feature hasn't been built yet, we now have an Evernote employee actively engaged on this topic. Let's take advantage of that vs. venting frustration. Rebranding by the way involves a totally different team than the product/engineering teams, plus keep in mind there are likely hundreds of threads just like this one with people passionately making the case for their particular feature. So again - I understand your frustration, but let's instead overwhelm the Evernote team with evidence on why this feature should be a priority.

  34. I haven't posted on the forums before, so maybe I put this in the wrong place, or I'm not explaining it well enough. This was just a feature request, something I'd like to see in Evernote. I'm talking about having a simple task list feature built in to Evernote. I understand that a note has to be created to set a reminder, that's what I do now. I would like it if there was a way to set reminders in Evernote without creating a full note, just a reminder for a task. I'll be working in Evernote and set a reminder for myself with a note that has a title, but no content. I just need the notification/reminder email. I then have to go back and delete the note later to avoid having my default notebook filled with blank notes for old reminders. I have a notebook for every client, and one note for each project in that notebook that I use as a development log. Each day in the log will have it's own checkbox task list for that day. Emails are also forwarded to notebooks to turn into separate client notes and short task lists, and it's a lot to manage. Having one note for each task wouldn't work for me, I merge emails into one note as they come in. My idea is just to break out task lists into an optional feature separate from notes. The feature I'm interested in would be similar to the Reminders app on the iPhone or Google Tasks, you just enter the title of the reminder in a task list and set the date and time. I use a lot of different apps for task reminders, and I'd like to be able to do everything in Evernote. It could just be a sidebar in the desktop app for task lists with reminders that can be closed if you don't need it. If there's another place to send in feature requests, let me know. The Help page sent me here.

  35. You see, everyone's tastes are different I think that for storing documents (attachments), Onenote is actually better than most other similar apps. They can be placed anywhere, accompanied with notes, etc. You're not being forced into a particular layout. And I use plaintext in-line tags, so finding them works the same in any system (I generally dislike having to assign pre-canned tags from a menu). What irritates me about Onenote are other things, slow sync (although it's been improving lately), no built-in alerts (I am not going to create an Outlook tasks for every reminder, besides I can't do it on iOS anyway), the whole concept of "Printouts", the fact that if I annotate a screenshot or a PDF printout inside Onenote the ink isn't grouped with underlying image so I better not move it accidentally, and many other small annoyances. But as I said.. I am no longer looking at it as the ultimate single tool, but something that supports my overall workflow. If I was using Google ecosystem on a daily basis at work, I'd use it for personal stuff as well and make it work. Makes things significantly easier.

  37. Is it just me, or is this finally fixed?!?! I've got v8.3 and I can copy and paste text, with formatting, and it doesn't turn into a garbled mess! Amazing! Finally! Welcome to the future! Unfortunately it also automatically creates bullet points, which I hate, and I can't find a way to turn it off!

  38. Totally agree. When I contemplate moving from Evernote (it has happened...) I factor in how much time the latest irritation-of-the-moment is adding to my day, and compare that to the hassle of installing new software, learning how to use it effectively, converting my existing notes into a new format (or running two databases side by side) and settling back into an effective routine - at about which time Evernote will have usually fixed the bug anyway and I could have stayed where I was. I'm already committed to this application - unless there's a major security issue, a massive bug, or they go out of business (none of which seem likely), it's a waste of time to consider it.

  39. Yeah it's just a feature request. I have a lot of simple To Do lists in different apps, but I'd like to keep everything all in one place, and associated with notebooks and tags that I'm using if I need to. I'd like to see Microsoft To Do or Google Tasks functionality somehow built into Evernote as an option. It could be a separate app that syncs with Evernote to avoid overloading the main program. Anyone that doesn't want or need that feature wouldn't be affected.

  42. Hi guys, great web interface update! however when moving notes there's suddenly no way of searching for notebooks, but instead i have to scroll through hundreds of notebooks to find the right one for ever note. (if im not missing something obvious) Please add the search box back in, in the move dialogue. Also if there is a way to be able to select and move multiple notes in one go that would be something long awaited. i was hoping that would be implemented by now but it doesn't seem to be. thanks David

  43. Onenote is a great tool in it's own way. Just like Evernote, it has it's drawbacks. Advantages: - Free, up to the limits of Onedrive free storage. Not sure what it's stands at now, I think 5 GB ? - Excellent attachment handling. You pretty much can position any attachment anywhere, which makes it great for keeping project notes. - Excellent table function - Full section encryption. - Fantastic editor. Disadvantages: - Once you run out of 5GB free space in your Onedrive, you can't upload any more notes unless you buy more space. For the record, all of my notes collected over many years were at about 4 GB (I had 30 GB Onedrive space total, due to several "free space' deals). So for many users, this is going to suffice for a while - It's sync engine is slooow and clunky. While I never lost any data, I periodically ran into sync conflicts. MS way to make sure no data is lost during sync conflicts is to keep a copy of both versions. It's probably a good approach, but does require a bit of extra maintenance. - MS is doing away with Desktop version, and concentrating on Metro app version of Onenote. This means, no more ability to store your database locally, you're being forced to keep it in Onedrive. AFAIK no way to backup Onenote data locally either, you have to back it up from Onedrive. In the end, I stopped using Onenote, and only use Evernote for my wife's recipies (she doesn't want to learn any new apps).

  44. OneNote is better at editing (proprietary format). Evernote is better at filing documents/files. I don't need a new editor; I have access to various editors that get the job done. I need a tool to store my +10,000 documents and make it easy to access data as required. The Evernote note can contain files of any format. I use the Evernote editor for basic notes. I use MS-Word/Apple-Pages for word processing, MS-Excel/Apple-Numbers for spreadsheets, PDFs, Images, ... >>I'm not saying to make it free because its an awesome handy app but saying that on the free version they should increase from 60 mb only to something a bit bigger than that. Paying customers are needed to pay the bills for the service and fund ongoing development.There has to be limits on the free account otherwise few users would upgrade to the paid version. I view the free account as an introduction to the service. If you find this a useful product, subscribe and get access to the full featureset. >>compared to OneNote which is TOTALLY FREE tanstaafl - there ain't no such thing as a free lunch; and I'm not signing my soul to the devil Get thee behind me Satan

  45. Upgrade on Windows is optional also. But if you wait for a bugfix, see the bugfix in release notes, install the new version and then recognize some other ugly things, it's disappointing (even or especially to an over-all exited user ;-). You may participate in beta programs (as I've done so in in the past for some times). But this is time consuming and not really helpfull because they've released some already mentioned bugs and|or dirty features later. I.e. new table features have been criticised but are not well implemented up to now. There are many users paying for one or more Premium accounts (for myself add Business also). It's enough to rely on getting stable software with some already tested new features.

  46. I'm still on v. 6.5, for the very reasons presented here (and others). Every update breaks something that worked just fine, and improvements (if any) seem to be minimal. The most recent I heard was that the user spelling dictionary was removed!! Accidental? Deliberate? Sociopathic? Who knows; but I ain't updating till something actually improves. It's happening on the Android app too--they broke a reasonably well-functioning clip/share function, then restored some minimal functionality, but it's still largely broken (I almost typed borken--that should be a word).

  47. Workaround, there is a utility called SysExporter by Nirsoft that can help get the list. SysExporter lets you grab data from a standard Windows list. So if you have the Assign Tags dialog open you can grab that data and drop it into Excel. You Ctrl-A the list and use the File menu to export the list. A little bit of cleanup using sort and the Trim function and you have a list of tags.

  48. Hi. There's a not specially difficult workaround - Go to All Notes, List View Ctrl-A to select all lines Ctrl-V to copy Paste to Excel (or other spreadsheet) Delete columns not required Sort remaining, following procedure to eliminate duplicates e.g. Remove duplicate values - Select the range of cells, or make sure that the active cell is in a table. On the Data tab, in the Data Tools group, click Remove Duplicates. Do one or more of the following: Under Columns, select one or more columns. ... Click OK. ... Click OK. - If you use multiple tags you may have to further process the remaining list to give you one complete list, and this doesn't handle a child tag structure at all: but it does give you the complete set, which could be stored in a note and kept up to date alongside the in-app tag structure. On the other hand, given the ability to 'stack' tags into a hierarchy, it may be easier to manage the list within Evernote. I do agree with you that it would be very useful to have a more complete tag management process, including the ability to export/ print. There is a third party option - I've posted before about Evernote Batch - https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/97218-consolidating-multiple-accounts/?do=findComment&comment=412594 - it's a paid-for add-in which adds some useful features to note layout as well as some utilities like exporting and importing tag lists and Outlook notes. Written by someone who seems to be a OneNote app designer... http://www.onenotegem.com/evernote-batch.html http://evernote.onenotegem.com/document Beware that last I looked this add-in requires you to downdate Evernote to a previous version to install, then re-update to the present. Don't know why, but it requires extra work to install...
