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

    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

    Would love to be able to have a hyperlink to tags that are in my notes. So that way, I could have a Table of Content Notes that linked to my favorite tags or saved searches. I think this idea has been mentioned in other threads for many years.

    I transcribe my Evernote audio notes once a week from within Evernote, pressing play on the audio note and then transcribing right below. However, sometimes I need to pause the audio to catch up. Taking my hands off the keyboard to press 'Pause' with the mouse is extremely inconvenient and I cannot seem to find a keyboard shortcut to pause the audio. Is there a keyboard shortcut to pause Evernote Audio Notes on the Mac Evernote client?

    I really enjoy Evernote and it is my note/thinking tool of choice. However, I regularly take audio note recordings at meetings to complement my typed/written notes. Audio notes help ensure overall note accuracy and can help validate questions or concerns when others question what was said in any given meeting. I would absolutely love to see options for controlling the speed of playback on audio notes. This would allow users to gain back many minutes when relying on audio notes for transcribing. Nothing crazy, either a global setting in Evernote to select a preferred playback speed or, even better, a control in the playback UI to allow selection on individual notes (since cross talk and background noise can be problematic at times - playback speed on a note by note basis would be better).

    Dear Evernote team, I would like to submit a feature request. Could you please add a fullscreen display of notes in iOS (without the top bar and the bottom bar)? We loose so much space with those bars, if we could for instance double-tap to go fullscreen, then double-tap again to display the top and bottom bar, that would be great. That is especially important in portrait mode because we don't see much of the note because of the bars. Could you please forward my request to your marketing/development team? Regards Yoan

    @Scott T., thank you very much for your reply. I've read Ian's post, I totally agree with the priorities. It's great to know there's hope for Linux and that it is a concern that'll be addressed soon. Let's move on, and long live EN!

    Hello fellow Evernote users! So good to see some old names here! Pleople keep contacting me personally when looking for those Evernote for Windows related tools that are not supported by Evernote officially. Here's the new location for those tools which does not depend on any 3rd party cloud strorage: http://www.kvitek.com/en/ Best, Peter Kvitek exEvernote.

    It occurred to me a couple of weeks ago, that Evernote companion app Filterize nicely fills this gap in Evernote's architecture - it's possible to create multiple self-updating Tables of Contents for a client, a customer, a product or any general class of note that you may have. Put general notes in one notebook, and a set of ToC notes in another, and you can browse through your ToC "drawer" to find all your current clients listed in one note - even if you added one 5 minutes ago. Click on that client's link in the ToC to see a note listing your entire contact history and all the current projects you have in hand and quoted for. It's a set of virtual folders as individual ToC notes. Filterize also answers any problems with saved searches and favorites - your ToC notes are searches that are running constantly; so 'next tasks' and open to-do items are also ToC notes. Still getting around to setting this up for myself, but it should work...

    You could try the Brave browser, look and feel of Chrome but it is faster with some nice ad blocking built in, and reportedly better privacy. I've been using Brave for some months now without issue. YMMV.

    I am quite chocked by the tone in @DTLow's replies; moreover when his profile claims "Super guru". I am totally with @Hallpower on the fact that Evernote has co-responsability when branding and selling a product such as the Fuji ScanSnap Evernote Edition.

    Hi @ever_coffee I just checked out in Elementary... If you like the new web version of Evernote, and do not like chrome or prefer something open source you can use the Chromium browser or for that matter any browser built on chromium ... Vivaldi and others. Just checked it's working. The New version of evernote is not working for Firefox Quantum..sadly.

    Thanks for your input, I contacted Fujitsu just after I first posted my issue in the forum, and well as of for now my only option is to use the USB cable and wait for the update, which hopefully will be available before there is a new Mac OS update 🤣. It Is just a bit frustrating that an update is available for the other scanners in their lineup, and not for the Evernote Edition.

    Yes it does. Thanks. Wasn't aware of that. As someone who grew up with DarkMode, I've yet to find a reason to jump onto this recent fad.

    Yeah, I've dropped back to a basic user as well, after being a paid EN user since release. I'm tired of updates that make things worse, and the utter lack of improvement in core functionality (e.g. the actual note editor, which still struggles to consistently format text). Maybe they'll find their footing again before I've migrated everything out, but I'm not hopeful. The entire team seems to have lost the plot.

    I love Evernote and struggle to imagine note taking without it. After a year of Premium I've gone back to Basic due to disappointing support, however. While front line are helpful, all they are allowed to come back with is 'engineering know about this and may or might fix it at some point in the future'. Spotlight indexing is one of the most important features of whole entire thing. You really really don't need to advertise dark mode. If I can't search my one thousand notes, it doesn't matter whether it's in dark or not. This is a big deal, Evernote is suddenly half as productive tool for me. I might as well go to text files, that will be Spotlight indexed. I understand executives need upward pointing hockey stick graphs, and those don't come out of 'maintenance and bug fixing' but out of new shiny features. However if Spotlight breaks, Evernote on Mac is ruined, and executives should be all over that. If Premium tickets only get you a vague confirmation without timescales, tell people some other way what is going on. Use the forums (I'm sorry if I'm missing a thread, I didn't search very extensively). I can understand if Apple are messing things up for you guys, and would so much rather be told than left largely without information.

    It seems to me that most of the people who have responded to this lenghty thread proposing workarounds do not understand the use case. The issue is not about searching through a large number of notes. It is about being able to ARCHIVE old information. Several people, including patricksan, understand the issue. We have clients, we take courses in universities, we work on projects--and when they're over, we don't need to see the information again except in rare circumstances. And if one is a consultant or does project work, chances are high that you have notes that are very similar, but which are unique to specific clients. An archive tag will not work (effectively) in those situations. I dont know the decision matrix that the Evernote people use to decide what features to build, but this thread has been going on for a year or two, and never once has anyone from the company interjected. Nor did the company respond to my emails.

    +1 It's just too easy to lose data to accidental edits. Even if I spot it, its hard to undo on iOS, but often I don't until too late. Here's what I would like, in descending order of importance: 1) Specify that all notes are read only until edit mode is specifically enabled on each note - eg by button or menu. Ideally a user setting per platform, so that people could better protect their iPad, which is often left around, without restricting their PC. Read only notes would still allow non-destructive operations such as searching, selecting, copying, printing, etc. Ideally, the first time the editor detects a change on a read-only note, it would prompt to ask whether to enable edit mode. 2) If that is too hard, then show a highly visible 'change marker' whenever an edit is detected, so I can undo it if was accidental. Ideally, a brightly coloured button in the note title, which would be cleared automatically when I closed the note window, or when I clicked it to acknowledge the change, and showing the time it was last edited (to distinguish previous deliberate edits in the same session). Ideally the button would include an 'undo' option, especially for iOS if you have disabled the 'shake to undo' function. 3) Less important, but very useful (to me anyway). Specify that individual notes or notebooks are read only. Perhaps by a special tag of 'ReadOnly'? Perhaps require elevated authorisation to enable edits - perhaps by Evernote password.

    Hello! I recently create a video about how to create a Personal Kanban Board using Evernote to manage all my projects. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGfJX2oelnw I was tempted to use Trello, but all my information is stored in Evernote and I wanted to avoid checking too much apps or tools when I’m working. The key is to use the note links and create the columns. The video is in spanish because I’m from Costa Rica, but I believe is pretty clear how to implement the Kanban Board just by watching the video. Hope you find this video helpful.

    Hi, I think the title is clear enough. It would be very helpful to pause the "brainstorming" to get better thougts and than resume the recording. thx

    I agree. I think Markdown support would be useful. It should also be possible to export these notes as .md files so that they can be used in other use cases like pushing a repository to Github. It would be also be great to automatically update the UI when typing a "- " with a bullet. This happens in other applications like Dropbox Paper where you can automatically get bullets added by typing. Instead of selecting the bullet option in the toolbar.

    Hello everyone. It's been some tıme I had my eye on this feature. Today I reserved some time into doing this and created a simple web app. It works like this: you tag your notes with a tag called 'readonly' and every five minutes, the system checks your notes and makes tagged ones read-only. You can subscribe to the service via : http://onat.me/readonlymaker Plese note that this is a 2-3 hour work and I will not maintain it in terms of look etc. It simply does what it promises to do. If there's a huge interest in the project I might allocate some more time into it, though. Cheers, Onat EDIT after two years: Hello everyone. It's been 2 years since I launched this small project. I didn't think it would get that much of an attention. But I guess people indeed needed it. So, I just wanted to say that the project is still active. I updated the link above to the recent page. Happy locking!. ---- Please checkout this comment for further details:

    There’s so much to appreciate about Evernote, and the Web Clipper is a great companion to it. Oh but the inability to mark notes as read only is huge negative for me. It’s even more disappointing that a fairly simple addition to the UX (which is available to third-party developers or enterprising hackers) has been known about but put off for over five years. That’s a lifetime! I would have considered a paid account at some point too. I would contact Evernote directly, but I wouldn’t expect anything other than a non-comital brush off.

    Patrick, I agree that having some type of system level "archive" flag/field would be really great. Clearly, IF Evernote is actually thinking long-term about being the "100-year" company they claim they want to be, there are a number of issues they need to deal with. Scope is one of them. Scope is a term that has been used for a long time, and it simply means defining the scope, or range of activity you currently want to deal with. There are lots of ways of implementing this, but for the here and now, we need to devise an approach that will work NOW. I have thought of two approaches. There may be more, but here they are: Assign a Tag of "Archive" to ALL notes you don't want to include in Searches. Move ALL Notes to a Notebook, or Stack, named "Archive" (for example) that you don't want to include in Searches.I think the Tag approach (#1) has the most flexibility and ease of use. You can ADD a Search term of "-tag:Archive" to any search you want to EXCLUDE those OLD Notes. Unfortunately, this makes use of the Tag filer not very useful, because you can ONLY select one Tag to be filtered, AND you cannot exclude Tags. So you have to use the general Search box for everything, and include the "-tag:archive". Unfortunately, you cannot EXCLUDE a NB from the search. But you can exclude Tags. So, it's not perfect, but it's the best you can do for now. I'd suggest that you and others so interested continue to request that Evernote provide a "Scope" filter that applies in addition to any other Search/filter that you might use. Possible Future Enhancements Instead of having a simple "Archive" flag, if we had a Scope filter, it would be much more powerful and flexible. For example, you could dynamically set it to a date range, like "NOT (01/01/2007-12/31/2008)", and this would EXCLUDE all Notes in the years 2007-2008. Another example is ">=01/01/2009" which would limit the scope to Notes created on Jan 1, 2009 or later. IAC I hope I've given you some ideas about how you might make things work for you now.

    Something I think would be cool is to have notes auto locked if they haven't been modified in X number of days. Maybe even done on the server side rather than client side so as to not affect upload usage.

    Actually, as of January, we added the ability on the back-end to make specific notes Read-only in the clients. It's currently only available via API. This is an interesting idea, to allow users to turn on that switch.
