    Shortest response to all speculation above: we have been investing for the last several months in replacing the plumbing in client apps, including in the modern web experience. When we are done (we aren't, yet) this will mean a common codebase shared across all the clients for cloud-client functionality such as sync, which should help us both isolate and stamp out bugs as well as driving more consistent behaviour across any user's Evernote experience that spans multiple devices. None of the previews put out to date incorporate any of this work, which is foundational to implementing the local data store for desktop and mobile clients that we all know and love. We plan to shoot a Behind the Scenes video that talks about the new plumbing, but the architect we need for that is ... ahem ... busy right now, or else you would have seen it before this one! Side by side installations on desktop machines of the beta and of a current production release will have distinct local data stores; you will be able to use both at the same time (I do that, right now).

    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.

    Would it be possible to make changes to the table format that would allow adjusting the row height? At present, table column width can be altered. The row height seems to locked and is much bigger than in the past. We have a form that was designed a couple years ago using tables. Unfortunately, some of those tables are no longer compatible with the upgrades that have transpired. The current row height takes up twice as much space as the old format and thus would make our forms very large and more difficult to use. Thank you for your support

    Thanks gazumped. This seems like an excellent idea. I have not considered Bitwarden. Their Web Vault with a long admin password that is easily remembered can be a one-point of contact solution for a worst-case scenario. Even their web copy points at this: "Stuck without any of your devices? Using a friend's computer? You can access your Bitwarden vault from any web enabled device by using our web vault." It seems like it makes sense to transfer all of my passwords from KeePass to Bitwarden. Thanks again.

    Luckily everything survived - it was a notebook with a few notes I was relocating elsewhere. Seems to me Evernote came back with that expression that cats use a lot - "I meant to do that..."

    I do this forum on Windows, and there I type @ followed by the first letters of the name. A list of possible names pops up, and I keep typing till I get the one I want, or at least till it is close enough to select. I don't know if it can be done on Android.

    We users don't have a lot of insight into Evernote's issue list and their prioritization, but there's lots and lots of feature requests in this subforum (specific to Windows) and the general feature request subforum (which often apply to Evernote), We do know, or can infer, from the CEO's comments elsewhere that the Windows platform is roughly 12% of their user base, so that's a factor as well. Combined with that, they'currently engaged in large re-engineering effort across all of their clients; see the Behind the Scenes videos (https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/306-behind-the-scenes-series/) and any forum postings by the CEO @Ian Small. All of which impinge on development resources. It's not solely a matter of priority, it's always a matter of priority vs. cost. Sure there's technical debt associated with re-engineering classic Win32 API based UI for dark mode. Because it's not supported by the Microsoft APIs. See, e.g. https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/e36eb4c0-4370-4933-943d-b6fe22677e6c/dark-mode-apis?forum=windowssdk. There's no magic "Expecto Darkonus" spell, sad to say. The 6 month estimate comes from @dconnet in this very thread. Notice their user badge. I'll leave it to you to discuss with someone who's actually seen the code. For what it's worth, I value functionality, reliability and usability over dark mode, by a wide margin. Eyestrain isn't a problem for everyone (or me fortunately). But all use cases are different, and your mileage may vary. Other platforms evidently get dark mode support "for free", so that's been added as feasible. For the Windows client, a different story. I think that if it were easy, they'd have already done it.

    Glad that someone got what I was trying to explain, at last! So looks like it's not a specific Youtube problem, but an all-round link conversion issue. I hope this will be fixed soon. Thanks!

    hi, this was not the issue. support suggested that i drop out from the beta version member and try using again the regular version from the Play store. once i did everything works just as expected. so it must have been an issue with the beta version of Evernote, and dev team should be familiarized with it.

    That's my understanding (Evernote/Web) There's also Android possibility https://blog.google/products/chromebooks/the-google-play-store-coming-to/

    I have attempted to find a solution to this (see title) for sometime. I would generate links, Web-Links (CTRL+/ -or- 'Copy Share URL) from EN-for-Windows desktop app, paste these to other Online websites e.g. Asana.com But when clicked, these links, would take me to EN-WEB ...with the next issue being EN-WEB then instructed me to 'Save Copy to Evernote'...arrghh Creating 'Classic In-App Links' (CTRL+ALT+L) from EN-for-Windows e.g evernote:///view/ ...could also be pasted in to online websites, if pasted as plain text, but then these links aren't recognised by online websites such as Asana.com. However these 'Classic Links' work perfect if pasting in to other Apps installed on your PC, such as MS Word/Outlook/Excel ...no problem at all and work fine. But again my issue was wanting links I pasted to online websites, to open in EN-Desktop, not EN Web... and definitely not resulting in saving a copy of the note Whilst not perfect - I finally found how to make this work... and the trick is to generate the link off the Web, for the Web, or in other words I need to go to EN-Web to generate the Note-link, not EN-Desktop. I have copy-pasted my own use-notes below. And for fun copied all the notes I have clipped since trying to figure this out. USE NOTES: LINK TO EN-for-WINDOWS DESKTOP NOTES - FROM: >>1 OTHER PC DESKTOP APP Generate a CLASSIC IN-APP LINK, looks like evernote:///view, (CTRL+ALT+L - or go Menu>Note>'Copy Internal Link') from EN-DESKTOP APP > Paste Resulting Link to Other Local PC App e.g MS Word - works great. >>2 ANY ONLINE WEBSITE Must Generate a NOTE-LINK from EN-WEB (Click ellipses top left of screen) > Must Be Using OLD Version of EN-WEB (not Beta version) and EN-Desktop must be opened on PC. NOTE- The Desktop Note will open as a Separate Window PLUS your Browser will show the same note in a separate Browser Tab. There is no way to disable this, as this is due to the need of the server to read the link first from the server, and call out the note in the app. Finally, if you ever delete your EN cookies from your browser, you will once again be prompted and need to choose where to open the links - see image below RELATED FORUM THREADS I READ TO ARRIVE AT THE ABOVE How to make Chrome open Evernote links in desktop app | 2015 How can i create an evernote link in desktop version to open the desktop version when pasted into a web link | 2019 Make links to notes to open with desktop app | 2019 OPTION To Open EN Notes Linked to from Other Website in EN-Web -or- EN-Desktop | 2018 | My Thread Open Link with Desktop not with Browser | 2017 Workaround: How to Use Internal Links | 2019 Clicking web link to note goes to web Evernote, not locally installed app | 2016 - 2018 | My Comments

    What platform are you talking about ? Windows ? Mac ? The ScanSnap clients are differing by platform, but both offer OCR, for example.

    I think that it would be better that when you want to use the highlighter it would keep selected until you quit. A way in which I use evernote is to collect articles from the web to read them later. But when I want to read and highlight the process is select a piece of text and then pulse on the highlight button, and then again and again with every piece of text. Wouldn't it be better to push the highlight button at the beginning, so when you select every piece of text it comes highlighted without the need to push the button each time; and when you finish or need another tool you simply deactivated it. And if when you select a piece of text it comes highlighted but at the same time it pops up a little box of highlight colours so you may want to change the last one you had used it would be the best tool.

    One quick solution is to look in a folder called Purgatory (really) Deleted notes go there before they're truly gone This is raw note data; no metadata, only note content Purgatory is in your database folder To locate the database folder On My Mac, I click on About Evernote, and press the option key A link to the database folder appears This also tells you the folder to restore from TM Make sure you disable syncing so you don't trigger a mass sync To recover your note, Turn off syncing Close Evernote Save the current database folder Restore the old database folder from TM Start Evernote Find the note and export it to an .enex file Close Evernote Restore the database folder to the saved current version Start evernote Import the enex file This is not a procedure I use. I have a backup process running on my Mac (documented here) that allows me to easily recover lost data

    Hi all, We were recently advised by LinkedIn that they are making changes to their infrastructure. Unfortunately, this means that after mid-July, third-party apps like Evernote and Scannable will no longer have any access to LinkedIn data. What does this mean? Any LinkedIn profile information you’ve already added to a note will remain. But you won’t be able to see a LinkedIn user’s details, or connect with them, when you scan a new business card in Evernote. You’ll also lose the ability to add content from your own LinkedIn profile to your Evernote account, or see LinkedIn information using our Context feature. What will happen? Within the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out updates for iOS and Android that will remove the LinkedIn connection. You don’t need to take any specific action other than keeping your app up to date. Mac and Windows updates are currently available. If you haven’t updated your mobile app by mid-July (or if you’re using a desktop app) you’ll still see the option to connect to LinkedIn when you scan a business card, but nothing will happen. Despite these changes, we want to be clear about one thing: business card scanning is not going away. You’ll still be able to: Take a picture of a business card and save it in Evernote Add the person to contacts on your mobile device Email your own info to the person Find the business card later using Evernote’s text recognition feature The LinkedIn integration was an awesome feature and we’re sorry to see it go. But we’re still committed to helping you work smarter and keep your life organized. If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to me directly!
