    I feel on the biggest missing features is native support for Markdown. Please add native Markdown to Evernote.

    Hi All, We’re very excited to share the first installment of our new behind the scenes video series, lead by our CEO Ian Small. We hope to give you insight on the work we’ve been doing, and a peek at what’s to come. We’ll share more next week! Stay tuned.

    Hi all, Evernote is brilliant - could not navigate life without it!! A feature that I feel is dearly needed and would be tremendous to have is the ability to create an anchor point in notes. eg if I am working on a lengthy note and constantly referring to other notes at the same time I want the ability to specify a point where I am working in that note so I can go straight back to it. Also, when you open a note it goes straight to the start of the note. You always have to scroll down to the bottom of the note to add to it. Many thanks for any comments.

    Hey gang - There is some useful feedback in this thread which I have read with interest. Thank you! There are also a lot of concerns raised, whether it be feedback to the specific content we showed, or all sorts of interpolations and extrapolations built off what we showed (and in some cases, what we didn't). I don't have time to respond to every possible angle raised in this thread, but here are a few quick responses: 1. Roughly 12% of Evernote usage is on web sessions. 2. No one ever said anything about making Evernote a web-only experience. Just because we demo a set of improvements to search on web (which is the least adequate search experience, btw) doesn't mean this is the only thing we are working on. In a series of videos that may well have a lot of episodes by the time we're done (depending on the response we get, I guess), we judged it to be a reasonably approachable initial subject for a first video. Why? It's relatively easy to understand. It's visual. 3. Following up on #2 above, we are NOT planning on eliminating Windows and Mac versions of Evernote with local stores, nor Android and iOS versions with local stores, etc. Being able to use Evernote whether online or offline is a major feature/benefit and in a million years that's not going away. Of course, having a local store would be even better if sync was fully robust. Working on that. 4. Having the kind of interactive search capability we outline here doesn't mean we're taking away your power search capabilities. It means we're trying to find ways to (a) more quickly get to the content you're looking for *without* needing to know quite as much of the search instruction arcana (b) give more people more powerful search tools (c) get there in fewer keystrokes. I'm sure we'll get some things wrong along the way, but we're trying to have our cake (improved UX, improved relevancy, more interactive search tools) and eat it too (powerful command line syntax) on this front. 5. As I said in the first video in this series, some of what we choose to show in this series won't relate to a problem you in particular are facing. Hopefully some of it will. I recognize it's frustrating if the first video we drop doesn't relate to your top pain point, but you can rest assured that there are others amongst our millions of users who do. Otherwise we wouldn't be working on it. We can only do one topic at a time. 6. One of the reasons we prototype a lot of new stuff on the web first is because it's absolutely the fastest way for us to design/test/validate/deploy something new to a limited set of customers in order to get a feedback loop going about a particular design direction. As I said in the very first video, we are trying to test - with users, live in the wild - as much of what we are working on as we can prior to release. If seeing what we're working on in a web setting disturbs you simply because we are showing a concept in a web build, I'm guessing that for your own peace of mind, you should probably stop watching much of the Behind the Scenes series of videos. 7. If you *do* get invited to participate in a Preview release of some kind, as part of that we will point out to you that Preview is definitionally pre-Alpha. Which means more than "it's buggy". It means it's not even close to feature complete. It's not performant. It's so early there isn't a proper name for it. But if there's enough in there for us to get directional feedback early in the process, we will do our best to put it in front of some users, live and in the wild. Because the earlier we get feedback, the better chance we have of being ultimately on target. All we will ask of you is not to pre-judge the eventual release of something by its Preview release, a release that may come months before we lock down direction, functionality or performance. Previews usually come along with non-disclosure requests, too, because they're so early. Which is one reason you (appropriately) don't hear a lot about them. I'll return to lurking now (and get back to my day job, which ultimately is where I have the best chance of generating value for you all). Thanks for watching, and for caring. I recognize that the last part - that you care - comes through in every comment. ian

    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.

    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!

    I love Evernote, but it's preventing me from putting in sensitive content. For example, I can't keep a personal journal notebook, because other people (i.e. girlfriend, family members, etc.) could one day be looking at those notes, especially since they know that I use Evernote often for many purposes. Evernote already has the ability to encrypt single notes. This is useful for things like storing passwords or other temporary sensitive content. But it's not practical to encrypt many notes one by one. I wish I could password-protect a whole notebook. This way, I can do a lot more with Evernote. If I can encrypt single notes, then why can't Evernote just allow me to encrypt entire notebooks? If reason behind this is because Evernote thinks one could lose a lot of data if a notebook password is forgotten, then perhaps Evernote can help recover the passwords through email. In the meantime, I'm stuck with using other apps (i.e. Pages, Day One, etc) to password-protect my content. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks for this report. Please try these steps to fix this issue: Select File > Exit to close Evernote Open the task manager to confirm Evernote is not running as a background process (select "Evernote and End task") Open 'regedit' (Windows key + R, then type regedit) Expand the HKEY_CURRENT_USER folder Expand the "Software" folder Expand the Evernote Folder Click on the second "Evernote folder" so that a list of Values displays on the right Right-Click "EnableHardwareAcceleration" Select "Modify" Set Hexidecimal Value to "0" Select File>Exit to exit the Registry Editor Reopen Evernote Please let me know if the issue continues after completing the steps above. Thanks!

    Hi All, I wanted to take some time to announce some changes you’ll be seeing in the discussion forums that we hope will help to improve your experience! First, we will be enabling a feature called Best Answer that will enable the person that starts a thread to mark a specific reply/comment as the ‘Best Answer’. This will then mark the thread as ‘answered’, and enable other users to quickly see that the question has been answered. To mark a reply as a Best Answer simply click on the 'check mark' icon in upper left hand corner of the post you're marking: When marked with a Best Answer, the thread will look like this: Then, you can see the 'Best Answer' clearly marked in list of forum posts: Our hope is that the Best Answer feature will better enable users who are asking questions to get the information they’re looking for, while also enabling users that have similar questions to find that same information more easily. Secondly, we’ve received a lot of feedback on the similarities between the FAQ’s and Best Practices sections. As there is a lot of overlap between the two, we’ll be merging the FAQ’s and Best Practices into a single forum under the banner FAQ's: Best Answers Moving forward, the FAQ's: Best Answers section of the forums will become a repository for the Best Answers we see in the other parts of the forums. Essentially, think of the FAQ's: Best Answers sections as a sort of best answers hall of fame.

    Hi folks, I lead the security team at Evernote. If you, or the people in your network receive an email from Evernote mentioning that we’ve detected suspicious activity, please know that this is not a hoax or spam message; it’s from us. The Evernote service and our apps are still secure; however, we discovered an unauthorized person testing a list of usernames and passwords that they stole from a site not associated with Evernote. If this person had the correct password for your account, they connected an iPhone app to it; and then used that app to search for cryptocurrency credentials. You need to take some actions to protect access to your account. Change your password to a unique one. Make it one that isn’t easy to guess. Make it one that you don’t use on another web site. Consider using a password manager to keep track of your passwords. Revoke any Authorized Applications that you are suspicious about or that accessed your account from an IP address you don’t know Install an anti-malware application on your computer and run it periodically to clean up any known malware. Setup two-factor authentication on your account, especially if you don’t want to use a unique password on your Evernote account. Then, even if someone learns your password, they won’t be able to access your account without also stealing your phone.

    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 where this is valid, some of them here: You finished a graduation course full of notes and you want these notes in a place that you may need but normally it will not be part of your search or have a distract visual in All Notes ViewYou closed a company and want all the notes in a special placeYou may not want to have this Archive notes in your local hard disk, unless you click "Download"You prepare for a vacation and suddenly canceled. You want to have this hide in some place but not displaying all the time. I think it would be a great feature. Thank you, Patrick Santana

    Hi All, We are making some changes to the member-leveling system in the discussion forums. Moving forward, we will no longer use the speciality naming conventions, and have moved to a numerical level system. You can find a comparison of the naming changes below. Nomenclature Chart: Old Name: New Name: Guest Guest Member Level 1 Member + Level 2 Noteworthy Level 3 Guru Level 4 Super Guru Level 5 Why are we making these changes? Simplifying the nomenclature to a numerical system will make a user’s contribution more easy to recognize Specialized group names can cause confusion, and often become stale or outdated over time Internally, simplifying the level system makes it easier to manage/update community assets like member-level names, badge updates, etc when newer changes/updates are necessary Member-Level Badge Changes: Along with changes to the naming conventions, you will also see a change to the user badges. You can see the new badges in the table below. Please note, ONLY paid Evernote employees/staff members will have the Evernote Staff badge. Additionally, all former employees will have the Evernote Alumni badge to signify that they were previously employed with Evernote. Guests do not have a badge.

    I think it's obvious, at this point, that Evernote users want the ability to select the default thumbnail for notes. I agree that it seems ridiculous that this conversation started in 2013 and 4 years later this hasn't been added to the application. As a visual person, the thumbnail helps me quickly find what I'm looking for. For example, when I'm looking for a recipe for pancakes, an image of the video (pertaining to the recipe) of two cooks doesn't help me find what I'm looking for. I need to be able to select the pic of the stack of pancakes. The whole purpose for using Evernote is to be able to organize things so that they are easily found/accessed. I'm confused why this isn't already an option. This seems so simple to implement. Can we get some love on this issue?!

    Two features to greatly improve the note writing and organization experience: Header Styles – Standard header styles, such as Title, Sub-title, Header 1, etc. Medium, Google Docs, and Slack Posts all are great examples of this. You should be able to select these header styles using a click of a button. The current workaround is painful: change font size for the header line, then change font size again to start writing in the smaller font. Note Outline – Once you create headers, these headers can then become a note outline that can easily be navigated. Look to Google Docs for a great example of this. This would greatly help my ability to navigate my more lengthy notes. Please see screenshots below. Hope you consider this! It would be awesome!

    Fujitsu, the manufacturer of the ScanSnap Evernote Edition Scanner is working on making the scanner's software and hardware drivers fully compatible and 64 bit. More information about 64-bit updates from Fujitsu can be found here: http://www.fujitsu.com/global/support/products/computing/peripheral/scanners/scansnap/faq/macos10134.html For this scanner's general compatibility and wi-fi compatibility with macOS 10.14 Mojave, please see the article on Fujitsu's website here: http://www.fujitsu.com/global/support/products/computing/peripheral/scanners/scansnap/faq/ssee-mojave.html Peripheral updates to any hardware device from 3rd parties like Fujitsu after Apple updates their operating system can take some time past the initial OS release. This is outside of Evernote's control as the drivers are developed by Fujitsu. It is recommended to keep an eye on the device manufacturer's compatibility page to wait until they confirm full compatibility with that OS before updating, to hopefully not encounter an OS update causing issues with your hardware in the future. For the installation issues it sounds like you're encountering, please first check your Applications folder on your Mac to ensure the ScanSnap Manager Evernote Edition software is not already installed. We've heard some similar reports of this. Past this, please ensure Evernote is also installed first before installing the ScanSnap Manager Evernote Edition software. I've followed up in your support ticket to further troubleshoot.

    This is a very, very, long-standing HTML feature, and oh so very useful for long notes. Two features I see essential for long (more than one page/screen) notes: Anchors/bookmarks Collapsible sections Both have been available in web pages since the early days of the web (late 1990's).

    This is exactly why companies hate sharing information. They put together a nice short video about how they are building a new feature. Somehow that then develops into Group Fear that something awful is going to happen. Before you know it, The Verge will have 500 words and a clickbait headline about it.

    I am not a huge fan of the great amount of light grey text. It is hard to read for people who are not 20-year-old programmers using a huge screen. I get that it is useful for unavailable menu items, but text should be black for available menu items which is not the case for e.g. the Insert drop down menu. Also, notes snippet would be better readable with darker text with not only the heading in black.

    Hi All, We've just updated the discussion forums with a section dedicated to Evernote Betas! This was done to help us centralize Evernote Beta announcements, as well as the feedback, thoughts, and questions from users specifically regarding Evernote Beta versions, into one location. Also, for those of you who have tested the Evernote Beta for Android in the past, we've moved that Google + community here as Google will no longer be supporting the Google + communities in the future. Please note that these structural changes only affect Evernote Beta announcements, and any announcements regarding GA releases for the Evernote Clients will continue to appear in their regular locations. Let @Shane D. know if you have any questions!

    I'm trying my best to be honest and give what information I can. I'm not an official spokesperson in any way. Just an employee who genuinely cares about our customers wants and needs. I try my best to vocalize concerns raised in the forums and bubble up issues to people when necessary. However, I always need to make sure I'm not "revealing our hand" in such a way that a competitor might be tipped off to our future plans. Or in any way to jeopardize my job. 🙂 But I can assure you I'm actively pushing for more people to get involved in the conversation with our customers. This forum has gone way too long with virtually no participation from Evernote employees.

    Please increase tags functionality for iOS devices: 1) We need *simple* multi-tag search. 2) We need auto-populate of tag names. 3) We need the tag library to reflect our desktop organization (e.g. order, nesting, etc), just as with Notebooks. The iOS apps are horridly crippled without these functions in place. Without them, you have only a few options: 1) Do without multi-tag filtering... Do you have something tagged for a person AND as an agenda item (something to talk about next time you see that person)? Too bad, you can only pull up EVERYTHING for that person, which may include years of emails, mtg notes, etc. OR you can pull up EVERYTHING tagged as "agenda", thus including large numbers of items irrelevant to who you are actually standing with. Insert your own example of useful multi-characteristic filtering, then accept that you can't accomplish them. 2) Utilize saved searches... This works perfectly, but causes, as it has caused with my Evernote, your Shortcut list to become monstrously long defeating to some degree the idea of a "shortcut list". In the end, you choose a few definitely needed multi-tag searches and resign yourself to option #1 above for most things. 3) Attempt to use complicated boolean search strings... This works in a highly non-intuitive way AND requires you to remember the exact wording of your desired tags, often difficult in situations where you are looking for a person for instance and don't remember if you listed them as Dan or Daniel. If you utilize an extensive tag list (a strength of the desktop Evernote applications) this works almost never, thus you resort to a few items under option #2, and mostly surrender to option #1. It seems quite strange that this is an unavailable functionality, especially because of how many people tell me it WAS available prior to 2011/2012. It's a very frustrating situation which is crippling the usability of the iOS apps for easy daily use. Please fix, or at least give us some idea of why this oft asked for functionality is still unavailable. Thank you!

    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?

    Having done all things IT for many years, it is disheartening not only that this is going on for so long (and making mobile access unusable), but that the official answer is "install this app from a rando third party site / AWS Dropbox, then enter the password that rules your life". Is it legitimate? Most likely. Is it sketchy when messing with your most critical data? Yep. Did someone figure out how we will be notified when we can reinstall from the Play store?

    It may be that some folks are looking so desperately for an Evernote replacement that they're rushing to judgement on something which looks shiny and new. The most important thing (IM - not exactly - HO) is that whatever solution you choose, whether it's Keep or Notion or Bear or Evernote, it has to work for you. That's the only test. If you're happy with a method of working, it's not my place to tell you that you could, or should, change it. I keep on getting asked questions elsewhere about "what's the best...way / app / method / etc" and my stock answer is: I don't know. I know what works for me - Evernote in my specific case, (plus - in no specific order - Airtable, Filterize, Freeplane, MSOffice, RightNote and Google). But for everyone else - why don't you try what's available and see which you get on with best? In my experience of changing between to-do apps on a regular basis, I can more or less guarantee that all the players in the 'note taking' field (that is such a limited description!) will be catching up with each other in various ways - feature A will shine at one app, and then the others will catch up and one of the competition will now have feature B! Evernote's competition do have an unfair advantage - they're able to poach the development that Evernote pioneered and jump in with an almost perfect first product; and they can develop from there. Evernote has 250M(??) users and a heck of a bandwidth issue as all their connected devices check back with Home Base on a regular basis. They have a huge operation that runs - relatively - smoothly. Changes (as windows Desktop users found out recently) can cause disruption. And Evernote users (you may have noticed) are not shy of sharing their opinions and derision when things go wrong. Evernote is rightfully cautious of upsetting any apple carts in their development work - and they're normally fairly good at succeeding. So. I'm staying in touch with developments - I subscribed to both Filterize and Rightnote this year thanks to the Forums - I watch the webinars on Notion and other solutions, and fantasise about the interactive database / spreadsheet / calendar / personal assistant that I could probably build... if I spent some time getting thoroughly familiar with the environment, and then converted 45K notes... or I could just get on with my work. My view thus far - if it works, really - don't fix it!

    @mdezrin Though I'm not actually in customer support, I believe the discussion forums are currently intended to be the way in which free users can seek help for issues they are having, or to provide feedback to the Evernote team. I personally wish there were better ways, but I think it comes down to costs. Providing personalized customer support is expensive and due to the sheer size of our free user base, I believe it is cost-prohibitive at this moment. This approach is pretty standard across a lot of internet companies with very large, free customer bases. I've been doing my best to try to get other employees engaged in the discussion boards. Several of our customer support members monitor the boards and respond or triage issues as necessary. But, I think it's invaluable for our non-customer support members to be engaged as well. The posts on here are a great insight into the issues and frustrations that our customers have. I've been able to quickly help address several issues people have run into that would have otherwise been overlooked. I hope this information is helpful. Please continue to provide feedback and I'll do my best to help surface this information to our development teams, specifically the Android team for any beta issues you encounter.

    I am definitely in the "lots of PDFs but they're relatively small" camp, and use tags and searching without much issue. However, I definitely have a lot of manuals, genealogy information, etc. in my database that can be scores of pages inside one PDF. When possible, I actually try to break those out into separate PDFs and separate notes to help chunk it out into better lumps for organizing. I also rely pretty heavily on the annotation summary you can enable when annotating a PDF. It adds little snippets at the top of the PDF showing the edits and annotations you've made and what page they're on. So, when I add PDFs that are huge (like the one below), I make sure to edit and annotate it to show the bits that are important in the PDF at the top as a point of reference. Example:

    Hey All, Thank you for reaching out! I wanted to let you know that we are currently in the process of determining how we will be migrating the Android beta community to a new location with the closure of Google +. That being said, I'll follow-up here as soon as I have more information, but let me know if you have any questions in the meantime.

    Well, according to the new boss, fixes over features is the focus for 2019 (https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/118322-evernote-blog-looking-ahead-evernote’s-priorities-for-2019/); I can't say that that's a bad thing. You may have to wait for the shiny...

    Sorry, @Nick L., I don't get why you would bother with even a Beta release that doesn't do much, and no details of the changes are provided. How can anyone test without knowing the changes??? And why would they bother, given all the issues that remain? Surely it cost time and effort to put out every release. Is this really a good use of Evernote resources?

    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.

    Evernote 6.13.14 for Windows I was just updating some tech notes, and went to make a note about a drive letter and the EN editor replaced my "D:" with a small black rectangle. I presume this was supposed to be an automatic text formatting element, and I can't think of anything else this might be except for a frowny emoji? I've tried searching the forums and can't find much on this, except for people asking for emoji support. I've also tried disabling the Automatically format text elements option, but that didn't help with this. Is there a way to turn this off that I'm missing?

    Hi , I think it is would be cool and useful if the Table in evernote could do some basic Calculation like excel , no need so complex like what excel do , but some calculation between cell. This can Help a lot when someone want to sum the value of ingredient for example or many things that need some basic calculation . Well , that is what tables usually used for , isn't it . It would be much help rather than manually calculate the value one by one in the table . Hope you would reconsider this Idea , Thank you .

    I had been planning to write an "open letter" to Ian Small in the forum thread about him, but I think this blog post renders anything I'd say redundant. Small is acknowledging everything that's been bothering me about Evernote. I've increasingly betrayed my frustration with Evernote in these forums over the past year, but I used to evangelize Evernote to anyone who would listen, and repeatedly defended the company in these forums during the backlash over the price increase and changes to subscription tiers. That's because I believed (and still believe) in the idea of a service that doesn't mine my data for sale to others, that treats me and not advertisers as the customer, and that has the feature sets that Evernote offers (or at least tries to). I've talked about giving up on Evernote and leaving for another solution. I've said the main reason I don't is that it would be a huge PITA to migrate away. That's partly true. But the more important reason is that I keep hoping Evernote will finally fulfill the promise that made me embrace the service years ago. When Evernote's features work, I find the user experience to be superior to that of other solutions I've tried such as OneNote. I like Evernote's organization better. I like the UI better. The web clipper -- even as bug-ridden as it usually is these days -- is superior to anything I've seen anyone else offer. I can organize, search for and sort my notes in Evernote in ways that I really like. If any Evernote employees are reading this, please tell Mr. Small that I want to love Evernote again. And he's saying all the right things to give me hope. But we've heard this stuff before. Phili Libin put on a hair shirt years ago but nothing changed. Actually, in some ways things got worse in my view. But if Evernote can begin at least making some appreciable progress towards better quality, feature parity between platforms, and all that other good stuff I promise to stick around and try to be positive about the solution again. The company doesn't need to be perfect. It doesn't need to meet every one of my personal preferences. It just needs to start doing showing some tangible improvement. That's all I ask. If it does, I'd be happy to fully embrace the solution once again -- and tell others about why I like it so much.

    It looks like there are a lot of discussions that go on about the utility of using tags versus notebooks, and how some people prefer to organize using one or the other. While people seem to get into the weeds about why tags or notebooks are better, I haven't seen a good summary of how Evernote handles these, so I'm providing one below and which, I hope, will give people a better basis to decide on which form of (or combination of) organizational tools to use. Without further ado, here is the summary of differences of how Evernote handles tags and notebooks (each type referred to as an "attribute" below): Tags Notebooks Maximum Number of attributes for an item Unlimited 1 Minimum number of attributes for an item None 1 Adding an attribute Add a new tag Remove current notebook designation and assign a new notebook designation - in one step Removing an attribute Remove current tag Remove current notebook designation and assign a new notebook designation - in one step Impact of adding/removing an attribute on other tags None None Impact of adding/removing an attribute on other notebooks None Removes from current notebook and adds to the new notebook Hierarchy Unlimited Can be grouped at one level using stacks Sharing / Sync N/A Can share notebooks with others, or sync them for offline use To summarize the above, the main differences are as follows: An item does not need to have a tag, but it must have a notebook An item can have unlimited number of tags, but it can be in only one notebook When adding OR removing notebooks: two things happen in one single step: Removing current attribute Adding new attribute When removing tags: only one thing happens Removing one of the current attributes When adding tags: only one thing happens Adding a new attribute Tags can have unlimited levels of hierarchy, where notebooks can only be grouped in 1 level Also, don't forget about the special notebook called "Trash": Keeps all existing attributes (including the notebook where the item was prior to being deleted) Removes the item from regular interface (search, tag, notebook) Note that within "Trash" one can search for other notebooks, to which a deleted item belonged prior to being deleted! Based on the above, my own conclusion as to how to use tags vs. notebooks is as follows: Notebooks, including the trash notebook, describe a dynamic attribute or a state of an item or some quality that would be exclusive of other qualities and/or that you would expect to change over time and be replaced with others, or that are exclusive of other qualities by definition, for example: Short-term reference vs Long-term reference Incomplete task vs a complete task Task for today vs task for tomorrow A note that is useful for later reference vs a note that is not expected to be needed Lists of notes with some common theme Tags can be used to describe static attributes that you do not expect to change and be replaced with a different attribute PS: where I say "unlimited" above, it means the limits are very high, especially for paid users to the point of not being relevant, in my view.

    Evernote Wizards. Please, give us a dark theme. My eyes are bleeding with how bright your default theme is. (both web & desktop) No suprise, it is mostly white. A great choice for clean design, but ultimately a fail for intensive use. Please, give us a dark theme. Best Regards, Your Paying Customer
