    Hey @logandb ... I just reconnected to my multi-monitor setup, then via Win10 settings, configured my high-res laptop as the primary main screen. Next I opened EN and made sure the EN app-interface was moved to the laptop display, as I normally have EN set to open on monitor/screen #3 (my laptop is screen #1), and like you as i dragged it across it was blown out displaying huge across all screens, so had to simply maximise the window on the laptop. And then just shut down the laptop. I then logged back on to my PC, opened EN, but it was still unresponsive... so I completely signed out all users, and signed back in, then wolla. I am now able to View Left Panel via F10 shortcut key or via App-Menu options....and I kept toggling F10 many many times and no issue. The only out-of-the-ordinary observation, is that this time round, I was also able to resize the left panel and the centre-panel-note list ( I use side-view)... to any column-widths I liked, well nearly any! The editor window just continually resized to fit, exhibiting behaviour like any responsive website does when you resize a browser window...not sure if that's normal but at least I can view left panel. Plus when I do toggle 'View Left Panel' via F10 or View>Menu...it maintains the last ridiculous column width I set. So now I am able to resize the left panel 80-85% of the screen with the centre note list like 15%, and have the editor window not even display! Weird and strange. But a win because at least now I have more display-flexibility than before...lol. Hope this info may help.

    I use Evernote extensively on my Mac, iPad Pro, and iPhone. We use shared notebooks in my office and I have a ScanSnap Evernote Edition sitting on my desk. (I even have Evernote desk accessories sitting next to the scanner.) I'm pretty well immersed in the world of Evernote. However, I've found myself turning to other tools, most recently OneNote, with greater frequency. The main issue, and it is a big one for me, is the fragmented and inferior support for note taking and PDF editing in Evernote. I use my iPad Pro with Apple Pencil extensively. There are some great Pencil-compatible apps for iOS, including Notability, PDF Expert, and OneNote. Evernote, on the other hand, is stuck with a strange and fragmented approach: PDFs can by opened using the "Annotate" tool in Evernote, which I think is built around the remnants of Skitch. It's fine for adding arrows and icons, but terrible (unusable) for handwritten notes on PDFs. It really can't be used for anything more than simple highlighting -- certainly not detailed annotation or note taking. Drawings and notes can be added to an Evernote Note directly through the handwriting tool, but this simply inserts an image into the note. There's no way to use this tool to take notes over multiple pages, or to use it for annotation as far as I can tell. I've also found it to the buggy, with full pages of notes lost if you switch away from Evernote to another app before saving the image and returning to the normal notes view. I will say that that, though the tool is very limited, with very few options, the Pencil support works well and writing is fluid. This tool seems to have the most potential for future development. Finally, there is Penultimate -- a separate app I want to love but is just too buggy, too limited, and too walled off from the rest of Evernote to be truly useful. Again, no support for importing PDFs/annotation, yet another approach to handwriting, and, though the Penultimate notes live in Evernote, nothing can be done with them in the main app. Why, at this stage, would Evernote have three separate, incompatible and incongruous approaches to annotation/note taking, none of which begin to match the functionality of some of the other apps named? Attached PDFs can certainly be opened in other apps, such as PDF Expert, but there is no way to get the annotated PDFs back into an Evernote note without deleting the original attachment and reattaching the PDF. That's cumbersome, and annotation seems like pretty basic functionality that Evernote should offer. Evernote certainly has some broader advantages over OneNote, but really needs to explore something like the "canvas" style approach used by OneNote. The ability to "print" PDFs to a OneNote page and then markup the document itself and take notes/add text/etc. all on one page is invaluable. I've pretty much switched all note taking/PDF annotation to OneNote, with Evernote still used for project management and other organizational needs, which leaves me with my own fragmentation. Maybe I'm missing something in Evernote's approach, but I'm a longtime user that's completely frustrated with Evernote's inferior support for annotation and handwritten notes.

    Hi, I would like to request an option to disable automatic emojis in the Windows desktop version. Thank you.

    Evernote 6.13.14 for Windows I was just updating some tech notes, and went to make a note about a drive letter and the EN editor replaced my "D:" with a small black rectangle. I presume this was supposed to be an automatic text formatting element, and I can't think of anything else this might be except for a frowny emoji? I've tried searching the forums and can't find much on this, except for people asking for emoji support. I've also tried disabling the Automatically format text elements option, but that didn't help with this. Is there a way to turn this off that I'm missing?

    Evernote web changed for me too. (firefox) But i reallllllyyy like it. Killer future for me: (i have been waiting for this so long) I can now add an attachment to a place in the note where my cursor is. Before all attachments were added on the end of the note. I do not use tags or bullet lists, so no problem for me => For some people there will be regressions (changes). But for me this time a big thumbs up.

    Yep, that's what happened I guess. No clue how I ended up with the Windows Store version but on the other hand I would expect the versions to be the same. Seems to be not the case Thanks again guys!

    If you OCR your PDFs yourself they will be searchable in EN independent of subscription level. Office documents for sure and I think images require a Premium subscription.

    Hi @achaigne. We store history for all users, so if you upgrade, the history of an existing note will become available to you. You would need to upgrade to a Premium plan, though, and not Evernote Business. Evernote Business is a separate product with a distinctly "business-only" user. Upgrading to the Evernote Business would result in the creation of a new user that is separate from your current personal user.

    @KelliJaeBaeli, I'd like to suggest that before you get too deeply invested in Evernote you consider some other options. Evernote is designed to be a service that allows you to take and organize notes on multiple devices (computer, phone, tablet) using multiple operating systems (Windows, Android iOS, a Web interface, etc.) and keep them updated on each device by syncing them through Evernote's servers (i.e., "the cloud"). Local, non-synced notebooks are kind of a secondary feature in the Evernote world. Since Evernote's notes are stored locally in a proprietary version of HTML, there is some issue about being able to access them outside of Evernote--you have to go through an export process. I have no experience with OneNote, so I don't know what its advantages and disadvantages are. But I wonder whether you've looked into Scrivener, which is designed for writers as a tool for gathering and organizing notes and other materials, and creating drafts which can then be exported to a word processor for final formatting, or published in various ePub formats. In Scrivener, the primary organization and storage is local, and cloud backup and sync to other devices is secondary and optional. Scrivener creates and stores its documents in .RTF format, so they are easily exportable and accessible (although Scrivener names the notes in its own system and organizes them using a kind of master XML index). Other formats, such as images, PDFs, and HTML, can be imported into Scrivener projects. The current version of Scrivener for Windows is not great at handling HTML, frankly; but a vastly improved and updated version is in advanced beta and due out within the next month or so. Apologies if you've already checked out Scrivener; but even so the information may be useful for others. (I may also cite it if I am ever put on trial for being an Evernote fanboy who won't admit to any shortcomings in the product. )

    👍 Hence my offering of an option. EDIT: Re this option: 16 shortcuts are visible in my shortcut bar, 5 in overflow. The shortcuts appear in the same order on my iPhone.

    Some people keep their shortcuts in the left panel rather than the toolbar, and you can keep the shortcuts item closed in the left panel..It's nice to have options.

    While it's a play on my real name, I picked it very much because of that. I'm a programmer - I kill bugs dead! That he was! Great guy too... (and we actually have the same birthday! We had to do some serious time-zone math to figure out who was actually older - me by a couple hours)

    As posted above this is most likely related to the monitor config and the graphics card built into the device. Most business notebooks run only an integrated graphics solution on the CPU which will emulate a multi-monitor setup, because it does not have the horsepower to provide high resolution with high speed to all monitors at the same time. Because this depends on the hardware, the monitor setup and the drivers, you will have to test it out.

    I also multi-monitor, and notice weird behaviour if the laptop is disconnected from the other two screens. No 4K involved here. No clue as to fixes though, sorry... 😕

    Thx @gazumped - tried those as well. The saved search nor the tagging didn't work quite for me. However, I actually figured following solution for me: Created "Current Items" notebook In there created separate notes eg. "Working items", "Hobby items" etc. Each note (= category) then consists of titles which are actually Evernote internal links. Ta-daa! I can even then have separate titles for those (compared to as the saved note-title in Evernote). Suits perfect for now!

    Capture from PhraseExpress below. Since the search strings are in a table a triple click highlights the cell. Pretty straightforward, Triple click - Ctrl+C - F6 - Ctrl+V - Enter. So hover over the search term in the table, hold Alt and press the right mouse button and the phrase activates.

    Just a little reminder, Evernote is now working on a unified editor across all 5 platforms, instead of maintaining them separately, meaning that if other platforms have dark mode, Windows will have it too (very likely). I totally understand the frustration and disappointment of Evernote not being improved much over the past few years. I did move away to competitor product, until I see Evernote releasing the Behind The Scene videos. The intention of these videos is clear, Evernote is trying to improve the product, but it takes time, and during this period, old versions will have the least improvement. Evernote is asking us to give them time. So far from the Behind The Scene videos, the future of Evernote seems pretty promising. I am convinced, so I came back. Maybe wait for a few months to see how it goes. But that doesn't mean it is for everyone. I am not here to convince people to stay, just to let people know this information. Making a switch and having to setup all the workflow from the ground up is always painful and expensive. So providing this little piece of information might help people when they have to make a decision. Hope this helps.

    Notes are synced when marked as „new“ or „changed“ in the background. From your description this may not have happened sometime in the past. Which computer or which EN installation was created first ? When you follow DTLow‘s advice, the sync will be forced. When this has worked, it is o.k., no further actions needed. If problems do not go away, the next step would be a complete uninstall from the MacBook, using an app like AppCleaner. Be sure all data is synced to the server, all local notebooks exported. It is important to click on all options to remove really all data snippets from the Mac. After this, all icons should be gone. Then a reinstall, using the version from the EN website, not from the AppStore. The new app will import all notes from the EN server via sync, local notebooks can be reimported.

    Evernote sync process is Device <> Server <> Device Check the server data using Evernote web at www.evernote.com To trigger a full sync on your device; Hold the Shift and Option keys on your keyboard and click the sync wheel

    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.

    The automatic conversion of ":)" to and other text-into-emojis is annoying, but that you CANNOT TURN IT OFF is INEXPLICABLE. I do a lot of writing in Evernote and then pasting to another medium, and 99% of the time EverNote's emojis aren't supported by the other medium, to add insult to the injury that I didn't want an emoji in the first place. Ctrl-Z "undoes" the conversion to emoji, but as soon as you type anything else it just converts right back, so you have to jump through ridiculous hoops just to get EverNote to SHOW THE THING YOU TYPED. I shouldn't have to write my sentence, go back to where I wanted ":)" and then cut-and-paste it in from Notepad, or put a space in the middle and then delete the space and oh heaven forbid you realize you want to put a space after it because BAM IT'S AN EMOJI AGAIN. In conclusion: please either add an option to let the user disable the emojis or just turn it off entirely.

    It is now halfway through 2018 and this issue STILL hasn't been addressed? How many years/versions will it take before this infuriating behavior is changed? I am an adult, not a teeny bopper or "millennial," and I don't want to have play four-finger calisthenics to type a character sequence like "8)". This behavior is stupid, puerile, and unnecessary, and there should be a simple checkbox in "Options|Note|Note editing options" to turn it off. Are there currently any plans to make this simple change in a future version? As a Microsoft Certified Professional developer myself, I know that it is the most trivial type of change—a simple bit field that sets or clears a flag to modify editor behavior, exactly like the other options in that "Note editing options" section. So, when, please? Oh, it occurs to me that, like many of the applications on which I have worked, there may be a bug reporting mechanism for Evernote where this request might receive a prompter response. Is there? If so, where? Thank you.

    Nope, it's still current and still pathetic. I have lost confidence that Evernote intends to fix it.

    Not being able to save back to Evernote deleted or rotated pages in Preview. It's the main point raised in this thread.

    There are work-arounds, for example, you can first hit space or enter, and then go back using the arrow keys to type the emoticon, and then go back forth with the arrow keys to continue typing. It's a pain, however. This is a relatively new function, and it's one I can't imagine most people would appreciate, so I am of the opinion that there needs to be a way to turn it off.

    I normally have a multi-monitor display setup, where my 4K Win10 laptop, projects to an additional 2 other 1920 x 1080 screens. But right now I'm using the laptop just on its own, whilst working from my lounge. However I've noticed, that the 'View Left Panel' options, normally toggled on/off via pressing F10 shortcut key (fn+F10 keys on my laptop), or navigating to Menu>View> and clicking 'Left Panel' works fine in the beginning of each session, but then after some time becomes unresponsive and just stops working!? It happened both yesterday and today, with the only fix that appears to restore it, is to connect my laptop back up to my normal multi-monitor setup. Strangely, all other keyboard shortcuts, like F9 to Sync, or F11 to View Notes List, or using the mouse to select these via the app menu works fine... it's just F10 View Left Panel that stops working! Maybe this is a buggy Windows 10 thing. I have no idea what is happening, anyone else experience this or know how to fix? cheers I'm using EN-for-Windows (308489) Public (CE Build ce-62.3.7750)

    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!
