    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!

    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.

    Fixed it. Something was off with the quoted text. Collapsing the quote allowed me to select the edit option. Thanks again @jefito @Dave-in-Decatur.

    Hi all, I’m excited to announce the launch of our new, free, Evernote for Gmail add-on! Many of us find ourselves buried under inbox overload—that frustrating situation where emails pile up faster than we can read them. With our this new integration, you can take the important emails out of your inbox and into Evernote, where you can get organized, make a plan, and take the next step. You can also insert the notes you create into your email as a public link anyone can view to keep everyone on the same page. With the Evernote for Gmail add-on, you can bring the best out of your inbox. Please click here to learn more. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

    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.

    @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.

    For editing, the Evernote editor/format is adequate for basic notes I use dedicated editors for serious work; Word/Pages for word processing, Excel/Numbers for spreadsheets, Notability for note-taking on my iPad, ... I am aware of Notion; lots of good editor stuff but imho it does not do a better job at document storage/retrieval >>As a senior poster in the forum, you need to reply based on how the 'average evernote user would use the tool'. No, I don't "need to" do any such thing. I am an experienced Evernote user, and I post my ideas of how to best use the product/service.

    Hi All, With the closure of Google +, we've launched this new section within the discussion forums to act as a centralized location where we will announce new beta releases for Evernote for Android, and where users can share their questions, thoughts, and feedback regarding those betas! If you're wondering how to enroll in the Android Beta for Evernote, please see this. Feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any other questions!

    Well, all I can say is these forums are littered with posts of accidental secondary accounts causing notes to "disappear". It is the de facto way to start the debug.

    It definitely wasn't that we weren't allowed to. I think it was a combination of things. People were too busy on other projects or it wasn't really prioritized. I also think most employees didn't take the time, as there wasn't really a "culture" of engaging our customers, as you put it. I can't really say for sure. What I can say now is that the CEO is trying to change that. We've got a senior leader whose title is basically "Voice of the Customer." The CEO is also pushing everybody to think about the customer as we work on initiatives. I think it will take time to get people more engaged, but I'm seeing it a little more already.

    @MatS14, since, as your OP now shows, the same phenomenon is happening in this forum and in the Evernote Web interface, I'd bet the farm (if I still had a farm) that it's something to do with your browser, not with these two (AFAIK) unrelated Websites.

    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!

    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.

    Curious. This works for me in the latest beta ( (308380) Prerelease (CE Build ce-62.3.7750)). I tried this with my own sppace-containing tag, plus your -tag:"department meeting" tag. You're not using curved quotation marks (“…”), are you? That shows the same behavior you're seeing. I use: "

    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.

    I submitted a bug report for this a few days ago. I'm frankly shocked that there has not been any official Evernote response here. This lack of transparency and communication is really inexcusable. It shows a profound lack of interest in customers.

    Perhaps I am being too philosophical about this, but I don't see how anyone can post realistically based on any experience but their own. What is this "average Evernote user"? For myself, I try to perceive the level of understanding of a question being asked, and reply in a way that will help a user on that level (if they're asking for help, which the OP here was not). But I do so based on my own level of experience, which may be more or less than the poster's. And I tend to post based on my own needs for using Evernote, which also may or may not be the same as others'. This thread started out because someone posted that the Evernote Web version was unusably slow on their new Chromebook, so that they need to look for something else. I sort of understand the desire to tell Evernote what they're doing wrong for you, a Basic user who has not paid them a penny to do anything for you, right or wrong. But Evernote is not your girlfriend. You do not need to tell Evernote that you are breaking up with it, and suggest that it could stand to lose a little weight and maybe get a personality transplant. And to suggest (as the OP did) that it is Evernote's job to make it easier for you to do so, for free of course, seems a little ridiculous to me. Summary: it doesn't take a fan-boy to think that some of the complaints here step over the line into the whine-zone; and no one can post based on guessing at an experience other than their own. In my opinion, of course.

    @DTLow With full regards to you being a senior poster here, how long are we going to continue this fan-boy games? How long are we going to live in denial? When someone posts a problem, why do we have to go with 'It works fine with me.', doesn't matter. maybe, it works for you, but in general what is the software experience of Evernote for most users? Are you still living in denial that new tools like Notion have come up, and do a much much better job than Evernote in almost all ways? Do we continue to live in denial that hardly any mentionable 'meaningful features' have come up in Evernote or for that matter, even if EN continues to be focussing on ironing out existing issues ( This has been said from the era of Phil Libin, then O Neill and now Ian small as well), why does it take so long to fire up the app, or to create a note? How much long are we going to live in denial mode?

    I hope that we'll get nice version-specific notes for the beta releases, as we do for the Windows betas. Also -- OT, but... -- is it time for a web client beta forum?

    Anyone have tips on how to get out of Evernote. I've absolutely hit the wall of tolerance for the tool. The interface gets worse with every update, and my team is about to explode with frustration. Any thoughts on how to get out? I'd like to be able to export into something useful, but the XML and HTML export options aren't exactly easy to work with or useful. (Thanks Evernote - one more reminder that it's time to get out.) I might move to Google Drive, or just Dropbox for now, but I want the notebooks in something more useful. Anyone found an easy path?

    I want to thank JohanDahlberg for starting this topic. I've been an Evernote user for so long that I've gotten stale and repetitive in my usage of it. I use The Brain a lot more now than I use Evernote but reading through these ideas is making me realize how powerful and useful Evernote is. I am 4 notes short of 20,000 and I'm sure I'll get there just by clipping four of the above ideas. I wish we had more topics like this as opposed to the "Why I'm leaving Evernote", etc. Whenever I start using new software (Notion, The Brain, task managers), I often try to figure out ways to get some of my Evernote data into those programs. It's just easier to keep it in Evernote and expand my use of it. I had forgotten about IdeaPlaces, for example - a great tool. Thanks for the kick in the butt, Johan, and all of the above contributors.

    Hi, In first I want congratulate the Evernote staff for the idea and bring the web application more close to the desktop version. Back to topic , the organization on side bar under notebooks in alphabetical order is not comfortable, specially when using on the desktop version notebooks organized under stack. It takes time to find the right notebook and also with tens of notebooks some names are similar but belong to different topic. Will glad to see improve on that.

    I’ve invested heavily into Evernote and Penultimate. And I’m about ready to move it all off to something else, because of the lack of updating Penultimate and the non-communication of what the roadmap is for it and Evernote. We received an announcement awhile back about a new logo and a “Renewed sense of purpose”. Evernote folks, if you are listening, it’s time to act with more than a new logo and a promise. Penultimate is now acting up with latest iOS update and is virtually unusable to me. Are you going to update it? Are you going to add pencil support to Evernote? What is the plan? Regards, Dan T.

    I can understand why Evernote split the Notes and Reminder views into two tabs. However I have a ToDo notebook that consists of 100% reminders. The Reminders view is always what I select in that notebook without exception. I also have a few tags that are always reminders without exception. Can you add an option to default it to Reminders tab? Even if it's a hidden view preference or option so it doesn't bother other users.

    I can't comment on the sluggishness of Evernote Web on a Chromebook, since I have no experience with that. But I do just wonder what level of support you offer the non-paying users of your business services. Frankly, I think that if Evernote had had this "foresight," a lot of people would be here complaining about their poor planning and predicting they'd soon be out of business.

    Evernote provides these forums for users to post "technical reports/complaints" and ask questions Non-paying users are welcome. >>Now actively looking for alternatives to Evernote and for ways to migrate all 14k+ notes out. I'm not aware of a better service for storing my documents. There's a good selection of editors. As to "migrating out"; It's always been easy to export our data out of Evernote on the Mac/Window platforms - simply select the notes and use the export feature; I run a weekly full export in html format, a 30 minute process

    Spoke with the Security team. Since our whole technology stack is built on top of the Google Cloud Platform (and stored there), we automatically get encryption at rest by default. You can read more about it on the GCP site.

    @EdH (and others on the thread): I looked into this and it turns out to be a small error on our side for the 2FA logic that was introduced while fixing other issues. Simply, we were evaluating a statement incorrectly that determines whether we send the code to the phone if authenticator is enabled. The logic was flipped, so it would always send the code in the case where a user has an auth app setup. We've got a fix already. It should hopefully go out in the next day or so, when we do our weekly scheduled maintenance.

    Thanks for the responses, and for the link @Dave-in-Decatur. I'll check it out when I get some time. @gazumped, you're right that there isn't a direct print feature in most Android apps. I suppose what I was hoping for is the standard share feature found in most other apps, where you can then share content from the one app to a selection of other installed apps (including email, SMS, several social media platforms, etc.). In my particular case, because on of my installed apps is the print app from my printer's manufacturer, this share feature allows me to select the print app and use it to print remotely from my phone. In truth, I was surprised (and slightly annoyed/frustrated) that the share button in Evernote has the same design as the share button in other apps but works to only share via Evernote's sharing system. However, I like your suggestion about using Evernote Web and then my browser's share button.

    I'd have to go back a dozen versions because it has just gotten worse with every release. Your interface/UI team should be fired and replaced. Do some user testing, or something. It's horrible. We're all on Macs and increasingly everyone we work with is complaining about it. You guys should figure it out before it's too late. Your software has gone from a business essential to absolute garbage on all platforms. The mobile apps should be dragged out and shot too. Sorry, to be harsh, but it's reality. I have hundreds of notes, and dumping to html isn't exactly easy to manage and import into another system.

    I absolutely agree with this post. Having both the header styles and the outline bar on the left is one of the best setup for note taking. I hope Evernote will make it one day.
