    Practically yes. You switch the Scanner on, and it connects automatically (when set up correctly) with the WiFi. Now it is available for all connected Computers, and other devices like smart phones as well.To set up the WiFi, you have to connect the scanner with a computer by USB-cable. The scanning connection is activated from the computer, where a piece of Scanner-SW is running. There you choose the profile (preinstalled, or you can set up several own profiles), which includes Simplex/Duplex, the scanning target (folder, Evernote etc.), the quality and if the OCR should be done locally. Then you hit the blue button at the scanner, and it will scan what is in the in tray, sending it to from where the last connection came. You can initiate the scan from the computer as well. The Windows and the Mac software is different, in general the Windows SW offers more options. There is another way, via an app installed on a smartphone. And the Scanner can scan as well through a cloud service offered by Fujitsu. This runs via a smart device as well, by again another app. For me, the direct scan into one of my computers and there into a new EN note is what I use the most. For scanning via my iPhone, I use the internal camera and ScannerPro as app.

    For anyone who is using Evernote on Mac and worried about the storage it takes up (mine used to be 50 gb or more) it looks like the way the hard drives are handled in the upcoming macOS Catalina helps with it. My application data now shows less than 200mb and all my notes are there and I've added quite a few more than I had when the size was bigger.

    Sorry for the topic drift; it happens sometimes. We are all volunteers, not Evernote employees, and we can't fix Evernote. We often are able to help other folks to use Evernote better; If you want better forum help, then feel free to pitch in.

    No; the Evernote template feature does not preserve tags, tittle, .... Personally, I use template notes and the duplicate note feature. Tags are preserved

    So it happened again. This time the email message only has one PPTX. After researching it, I think this (attachment coming in as a PNG image) when the email message is in RTF format. In this case, when I edited the message in Outlook and converted it to HTML, it clipped into Evernote with the attachment intact

    Long story short I'm having a bit of a clear-out in my rather full database (47k notes) and moving away from having most of my note-eggs in one basket. I've done several searches to bulk-move notes into new locations, and it's just occurred to me that I have some notes in local notebooks - around 500 or so - that if I'm not very careful, might get moved along with the rest. They would go from an offline, this-device-only notebook to a fully synced, available to me from anywhere notebook - and that being in the Cloud, it's a little bit more likely to be leaked. Now my World Domination plans are still strictly on paper (and in crayon) so there's limited risk, but I thought I'd try moving a note that I have selected from a local notebook into a synced notebook to check what alerts come up. And the answer is - none. So my proposal here is that notes saved in Local Notebooks need an additional "Are you sure?" alert before being moved out. Users do put notes in local notebooks temporarily when they run out of upload allowance, and then move to synced notebooks when the allowance reboots. In those circumstances the nanny notice would seriously annoy me when moving in bulk, so we also need the 'don't show this notice again' tickbox, and an entry in Options/ Preferences to allow that to be toggled back as necessary. I think this is a pretty important issue since my notes were offline for a specific reason and I do not want them in the cloud showing account numbers and sort codes. I'll raise it with Evernote and post my ticket number here, but meantime please be aware that notes in Local Notebooks look just like any other note - there's no highlight, no alert or any other sign they're unusual. If you have local notes - take care they stay that way. And please vote this issue - top left of the page! Ticket #2893633

    It's really great to see that consistency of user experience has become a focus of Evernote. Well done with the new tagging system. I wonder why you would need a way for creating a new tag when you can create one after an unsuccessful search, anyway. The first option is obsolete, imho. Just start typing and the tag will be found or created.

    Well, stacks too, even if their implementation is a little evanescent... Main feature request for an Evernote archive facility is here:

    What you describe sounds like the software equivalent of what we do by moving the cable, so that should work. We rarely need to scan at the same time so we can coordinate who runs the software. At least we will both be able to scan when we need to. Thanks!

    Cross-posting violates forum rules. I merged your posts and moved the discussion to the general forum Evernote has no specific archiving feature beyond the general filing features I use tag:archive to identify the notes, and exclude archived notes in searches with -tag:archive >>I mean storing notes you have done in an archive folder Evernote has no support for folders; just two organization fields, notebooks and tags

    Flip side of this is that moving a note *to* a local notebook from a synced notebook also doesn't get a notification, and that's inherently dangerous because now that note will not be synced to the Evernote servers.

    If you need your device for anything serious, do not use a beta. I am not sure how things will behave when stepping back to a normal release, so there is some risk in this. But if the app is unusable on beta, the only alternative would be to sit it out and wait whether future betas will solve the issue. From my observation, penultimate is not in the focus of development at EN. Personally I use GoodNotes 5 for any handwritten note taking. Once done, I can export it as a pdf (including the search of the handwritten pages) and store it in EN.

    I’m not following your logic. History has always been a premium feature. Whether Plus exists or not does not change that. You can purchase Premium for just a month to access history if you want.

    Wondering if Evernote ever actually implements any user general feature requests? Looking at the list, it looks like one of the most popular feature requests has been there for over 11 years!!! The top 5 look like they have been requested almost weekly for the last 7 years!!! That's pretty mind-blowing and depressing to see them ignore items requested over and over again for over a decade. Why even ask? Seems one of the best ways to improve your product in the markeplace is to implement features the users are requesting, especially for 11 years. What type of message does the company send to it's users by asking for improvements and then ignoring them, seems almost diabolical. Seems it would only be logical and a no-brainer for them to be working on the top 5 every year.

    A big thanks to all of you who watched this video and have taken the time to give us your feedback – I've personally read every comment (and so has Ian). One big improvement we've made since the video, is deciding to actually show tags on the top of the note itself. We plan to show 1-2 tags to the right of the breadcrumb, so you don't have to tap on the tag icon to see them. If you don't have any tags on the note, it shouldn't take up any extra space. Hi @jefito I should clarify about nested tags on Android – currently Personal accounts can view nested tags, but Business users cannot, explaining why users are reporting different experiences. For Personal account users who have nested tags today, we hope seeing the nested tree structure you have on desktop will give you better context when viewing/managing your tags. Good news @lisec! We plan to allow filtering by tags (and notebooks) in our mobile search! In fact, when you select a tag and view a notelist associated with that tag, you can search within that list or apply more filters. @Kruger2147 You'll also be able apply multiple tags – simply start typing a tag and in the search field and we'll auto-suggest tags for you to add as filters. Don't worry, @gustavgi the "Unassign tags from all notes" feature will definitely have a confirmation dialog! This is actually a desktop feature we're bringing to mobile. Your question about tags with long names that are many levels deep is a good one. At some point, if you are 5 levels deep and have a long tag name, it will be cut off with an ellipses. That said, the designs do work well to accommodate any nested tags which are 3-5 levels deep, which is to our knowledge the majority of our use cases. So we can be better informed – I'd like to ask people on average how many levels of nested tags do you have? And how long are the titles? 💚Thanks again for being such loyal and active Evernote users. p.s. @gazumped Ian still owes me that drink...

    Warning duly noted, but since this is for a vacation and not work, will likely be ignored 🙂

    It is freely available, but do be warned that one (500ml) bottle is never enough, and two go down very smoothly... but unless you have a outstandingly quiet day planned afterwards, stop at two. The after-effects seem to be on a logarithmic scale...

    Please allow notes to be manually ordered rather than by creation date, name, etc. I want to be able to place my notes and notebooks wherever I want in whatever order I want; an order that makes the most sense for me.

    Add my voice to those who would really the option of being able to sort notes and stacks manually. It's a feature that has been missing for years, and I say this as an Evernote Premium users of many years with 10,021 notes and counting. Yes, I know about the various workarounds using reminders, title names, tags, one-note-as-TOC, etc. I periodically come to the forums to learn about new things in Evernote and people's clever ways of using it, and I also often search for how to do manual sorting. There are plenty of postings where people discuss one technique or another, but none are the same thing as being able to order one's notes and notebooks directly by putting them into the desired order in the note views and notebook views. The fact that people have to resort to various hacks should be enough to indicate that manual sorting is a desirable but missing feature. Judging from some past forum discussions about this topic, some people will feel compelled to reply asking me why I want this feature, or lecture me that it's unnecessary, or helpfully point out one hack or another to achieve it. That won't be necessary. I would like this feature in Evernote because I believe it would make it easier and more intuitive for me to organize my notes, based on my experiences. I know workarounds exist but I find them unsuitable. If they work for you, great! But they don't for me. There does not seem to be a way to request features from Evernote directly anymore, and based on what I've read in the forums, it seems like posting to the forums is the way to make our requests heard. That is my only purpose here. I know the company that makes Evernote is not obligated to implement every snowflake feature that people request. I'm not complaining that the situation is a deal-breaker for me. I'm only trying to say "I'm another long-time user who would like this feature because it would address a long-standing problem for me".

    I really hate it when startups appear to have absolutely no HCI experts. Most of Evernote is pretty smooth and intuitive but this feature shows a severe lack of insight. Why do you think people even use your app? Without an electronic note taking system students need to organize bulks of printed class notes and jot down critical information into a notebook. The problem with this is you can't really copy and paste a screenshot into your notebook. Nor can you arrange those screenshots and notes into a system that follows your personal thinking process. For example, I'm studying and I keep coming across the same thing that was critical in Lecture 1. I want to take a screenshot and sort it into that information. How can I do that in Evernote? I can't! You've recreated the same problem that exists with paper notebooks but put it in an electronic medium. You've created a static organizational system where it doesn't even have to exist. Please fix this. Also, your Evernote peek App looks interesting but I have no idea how it relates to your main App. Do I have to create a separate notebook just for Flash cards? How would I be able to organize those flash cards when I have 100+ if I want to review only a subset that relate to a specific topic? You have the largest range of features but you don't know how to organize it properly so that it's user-friendly. Please get on top of this unless you want a competitor to bridge that gap.

    I love the "create table of contents note" option - I think it is the best way to understand the content of a notebook and navigate that notebook efficiently. I would like to be able to pin a note to the top of the notebook, no matter how the notebook is organized. I would mostly use this to pin "table of contents" notes, but I would use it on other occasions as well. And yes, reminders would technically do it but I think that is a little ugly. For me, that would mean having 36 perpetual reminders, one for each notebook. Way too much clutter for me. I think the "shortcuts" feature could address this as well, but again, there would be 36 shortcuts that I would have to visually sort through. It would be much easier to see just the note I want as I navigate to the appropriate notebook. This seems to be a hot topic, here are other posts requesting this feature, starting with this post: http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/50972-feature-request-pin-notes-to-the-top-of-the-notebook-browser/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/41293-feature-request-pin-notes/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/49215-feature-request-pin-note-to-top/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/34064-request-pin-notes-and-notebooks-to-start/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/23092-request-pin-one-note-on-the-top-always/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/42968-pin-note-to-top/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/33642-sticky-notes-the-ability-to-pin-notes-to-the-top-of-a-list/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/40833-is-it-possible-to-pin-a-note-to-the-top/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/18324-feature-request-pin-notes-favorites/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/30585-feature-request-for-android-client-pin-note-to-notification-bar/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/24278-feature-request-pinned-notes/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/24796-map-view-of-notes/

    No wonder the formatting issue is so bad and Evernote. You guys are all sloshed and drifting. Makes forum help yet another dysutility. For personal use 30 bucks a year would be fair, 20 bucks would be done it in a heartbeat. I would be happy to upgrade for real utility/less frustration What is fair for a multiuser business program is irrelevant to me. Actually tells me to go away, look elsewhere. Evernote has utility but it needs to have proportion costs how much you spend a year on bicycle chains, beer and coffee is irrelevant

    Hi. I've not used the wireless connection so can't really comment on the access, but will the scanner be saving to Evernote directly or to a folder on the respective hard drives? If to Evernote, then a login will be required... Maybe another user can comment more helpfully.

    I’m having the exact same issue. The pages now scroll with just one finger instead of two, and so I’m unable to write and edit everything. I need to take several exams and I have all of my notes in Penultimate, so it’s a HUGE issue for me.
