    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.

    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.

    Same here. Before I started with Evernote, I made sure it was easy to exit with my data intact. All that's required is a 30 minute export; I run this weekly in my data backups. As to what defines the "crunch", that's suggestive. Some users post it's the editor features; I focus more on the filing features.

    I think exactly the same thing about todays AI approaches. Nevertheless, we also introduced an AI component in Filterize to automate your Evernote. But It's not that black box type of AI. We use frequent pattern mining to find plausible rules, which could be applied to your database and while you are working in Evernote Filterize checks if one of the potential rules could explain your work. If so, EvA (our name for the AI) will suggest a set of rules. You can decide which rules should become active and you are free to change them later. You can read more about the process itself in our blog.

    I installed the latest update on January 3, and this issue was still not resolved. This is terrible.

    Like I said - the expressed intent is - Seems fairly pointless worrying about where this 'might' take Evernote, or using, or not using, the app because of what it might become. I'm still firmly using it because it works for me. If something better comes along I'll still hesitate, because learning how to use a 'better' system might still take up more work than sticking with Evernote. But if ever the crunch comes, I'm gone. No-one to whom I'm responsible is going to accept the excuse that my work is late because the software doesn't do what I need it to. It will be interesting to see what progress is made in the next 6 months... I hope they do well - I don't want to have to break in a whole new forum... 🤭

    I constantly battle this problem. I think it’s more to do with how hitting return is rendered as a new paragraph straight away, instead of just a new line. (Like in this text window.) I appreciate this might not be a big concern for maybe over half of the user base. However, drafting texts and papers and trying to copy them into word/pages is a nightmare, and many people have to resort to drafting outside their EN work setup. (I use Notes and OneNote). A simple solution would be to make these two rendering options selectable within preferences. (Plain text vs html formatting). I hope after so many years, the community can get a response from EN and help. We stick around for a reason, we love the product. But if the friction of using it continues to increase, other options become more palatable.

    Sorry it took me so long. We've been busy at work and here's a quick summary of what constitutes a rule. https://autocron.co/h/2019/01/09/the-anatomy-of-a-rule/ Let me know if there are any questions!

    Thanks for your reply. However, I can't get this 2-column table idea to work. The whole table shows up in the thumbnail view and not just the graphic.

    I use Ctrl+Q instead of Alt+F2. That works in single window note view as well

    People just want the features Evernote’s editor has to work properly. Nothing more. Tables. Copy and paste. Basic stuff. @jefito

    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.

    I'm so glad to see that the focus will finally be on fixing the app instead of mindlessly adding features nobody asked for. It's about freakin' time. As a long-time paying customer, I have been waiting for this day for years.

    Hi, I have a note with encrypted content. With the new version of the web client, I couldn't open the encrypted note. When I clicked the "lock" icon as the attachment below, it didn't do anything. This does not happen on the old version of the web client Thanks Narendra

    Got to settings - advanced editing to enable table creation. Still can't add rows/columns to existing tables as best I know. Organized people might check settings from time to time. ?

    Pleased to see that you're not an AI yourself anyway! We're (mainly) all Evernote users with various day jobs so I'm not sure this audience qualifies as experts - other than the personal research put in toward finding our own productivity solutions. IMHO most apps claiming "AI" involvement are just using advanced marketing speak (also known as 'handwavium') for what amounts to a new paint job. In any event I'd be highly suspicious of any app that genuinely used AI to make decisions for me - as would many others, judging by the generally bad reaction to Evernote suggesting that they were about to "help" users by analysing our databases. I have a deep aversion to any black box operation that processes by rules I don't totally understand and control. The apps I have tried that claim to learn my preferences usually wind up beaten (literally) into submission when they make continually bad choices. While there are thousands of productivity apps out there, I still haven't found one that can handle everything I need, AI or no. I'm currently back at three or four complementary standard apps for the whole process - including Evernote, Ticktick, Zapier and Airtable. Plus other apps like Freeplane (mind mapping) for planning and discussions. If anyone has any AI related suggestions, I'd be interested...

    An obvious workaround is to edit your tables in one of the desktop Evernote clients (Windows or Mac); that will sync to your Android device. If it's critical for you to be able to do this on Android, well, it's not supported yet. Since Evernote typically doesn't give out release dates for upcoming features, nor indeed, which features are actually planned for implementation, it's up to you to determine how critical that feature really is for you vs. what features Evernote has that are useful to you.

    Agree! A feature request for 3 years !? It is ridiculous!

    I only use the android app, this month I was testing the evernote to indicate to all associated developers. However unless there is a fix for the evernote table resource I will not be able to indicate Evernote, since it is essential. there is some possibility of this implementation?, otherwise we will have to look for another company. From what I have seen is something recurring, and neglect of needs is an important point to be evaluated.

    100% agree with @Johnson Roberts. If I need to use Word for basic note taking I will save it in G.Drive or Dropbox because it works better for this. I also agree that Dropbox should clarify its plans so we can take good decission and not feel like waiting forever for basic features

    Yes, many different features including I understand it Evernote's working towards a common editor, but there will always be device/platdorm limitations

    Really, I don’t understand what is Evernote doing. Doesn’t matter how much I effort using Evernote, I always finish frustrated with stupid thinks like this. Almost the same iOS editor in almost 10 years. Can anybody at Evernote please give me a clue about what are you doing in a normal workday? I think I’m done with Evernote. I will modify my workflow and I will start using other tools. And yes, this is just a message from a frustrated user that after 10 minutes trying to figure out how to inser a table in a note discovers it is not possible. A note taking app that not allows insert tables... I imagine taking notes is not the core business of Evernote...

    In same boat. Love Evernote, been using it since it's early days when I was a college student, now using it in the context of both home and work. It used to be I used Evernote primarily on desktop, but I'm using it more and more on my phone. I'd expect the software to be able to keep up with the way users interact with tech. Tables are a huge help for organizing information, and I'm finding myself having to open Google Sheets more and more to "take the notes" I want to take. It's a silly little thing, but for the amount of info we have to organize today, being able to make a simple table in my note app is an expectation. It's just a barrier to getting ideas down quickly and in one place... which is what I really love about Evernote. I've been working around this one simple workflow for months, and it's getting to the point where I'm not sure if the info is in Evernote or someplace else. If it doesn't get fixed soon I might just move everything over to Google Docs so at least everything will be in one place again. I really love Evernote though so hoping this simple request gets fixed. 1. Please add tables to mobile. 2. Make editing them more intuitive on desktop (Dropbox Paper does this wonderfully!)

    I agree the Auto Title Note Location Feature was a boon Not having that feature with the recent 'upgrade' means EN is not as useful to me and the manual titling is a drag on using EN This IMO was a bad move EN please think again and return that feature. I am not using EN as much it is not a useful on the fly anymore.

    There is a workaround. Create a template note with the different tables on a desktop. Leave a space in each column so you can select them. Then copy paste the table you need whenever you only have an android device on you. Make sure also to copy the space above and below the table you want to use. Here's a template example you can use: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s239/sh/7bb4945c-34dd-492d-a7b8-2ee4deed8314/90ddec1421a0abe01429dbcb4db78fc5 This workaround works for now, but obviously you shouldn't need one. Evernote, please fix this
