    Maybe still figuring out my strategy? ... Just because it's simple doesn't mean it was easy... It's also an acronym. 😏

    Aahhh, thanks so much for posting this. I spent way too much time this afternoon trying to figure out where my missing left panel went. I hate the collapsed view because I switch between notebooks often and I'd rather click once than twice. Anyway, I have multiple mis-matched monitors. I have a 4k monitor scaled up to 200% so I can see text. I regularly switch the 4k down to 1920x1080 to see older applications that won't scale, but look better on a wide screen. My 2nd monitor tops out at 1280x1024. This morning, I had the 4k down to 1920x1080 and had to switch it back up to 3840x2160 (because of a web conference sharing bug, but that's another story). I had EN open at the time (on the small 2nd monitor) and noticed a little later that my left panel was minimized and I could not get it to expand. It was minimized on both monitors. Hours of searching and frustration. Then I ran across this thread and tried switching my resolution back to 1920x1080 (where it was this morning). My EN left panel reappeared! F10 worked again! Then out of curiosity, I switched back up to 3480x2160 and the left panel stayed put. Soooo, it does appear to be linked to display resolution somehow.

    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.

    When I started with computers, all we had was dark mode: First came green on black, then (a revolution, one needed a special permit to get one of these) amber on black. The first screen with nice black on white was my first Macintosh SE, back then. But whoever wants dark mode - maybe some of the old CRTs are still selling on Ebay ... you just need to find a converter for the monitors plug. HDMI or DisplayPort will not do !

    Paul, I checked out your blog posts. From what I can see there, dark mode is the primary, almost the only factor in your decision, along with the evaluation that ON is about at parity with EN (which I assume is correct) and that EN is in serious trouble and is abandoning EN for Windows (which is rank speculation, verging on FUD). I also note that, in exploring OneNote's forums for issues around initial import and organization, you learned that "Apparently, people just deal with this nonsense. It seems crazy to me."--pretty much exactly what some folks (not you) say here about EN and its users. So, I hope it goes well for you, and best wishes for, um, pretty much exactly what you already had, but with dark mode.

    Yeah, second this request to at-least have a default font set option in prefs for setting the presentation mode fonts. As an addition to this formatting or lack there of. My presentation randomly started using GOTHAM font instead of the old legible one. Now Presentation mode is completely unusable, if not embarrassing. This was the only feature with web-clipper that I use en for! ~So gutted.

    thanks pink elephant. SO, I will try to rebuild the index with the troubleshooting first option. I haven't made first because The item didn't appear but now I know how to do thanks to the member DTLow. I inform you of the result.

    For the TLDR crowd, translation: "I really really think dark mode is what makes a piece of software great, so I guess I'll just jump into the first dark mode life raft I can find and it will be groovy note takin' and note makin' times forever! And the winner is... OneNote!!! (voice of Flounder from Animal House, "This is gonna be great!") So even though I don't really understand OneNote all that well -- or Evernote -- I'm just going to jump in feet first, 'cuz I have a master plan!!.An-n-n-n-n-d ***Kersplash!!!*** OK, that happened. So OneNote's importer is *still* pretty much borked, and screwed up my big plan. And my organization. And other stuff, that took a long time to fix up by hand. Because Microsoft, with all its myriad resources, doesn't match up all that well to Evernote's architecture, and didn't even fix their broken importer after 2 years cause the don't care or don't get it. But yeah, man, *whistle whistle* 'Jus' castin' off those old Evernote chains, shoo-doo-be-doop! Hey OneNote's got a beautiful dark mode and it's free, free, free!! Oh well, my time isn't free, and by the way, its search sucks, and it's tedious to work with and its forums are filled with lackluster no-hopers who just put up with OneNote's nonsense (at least you can get some good info out of those boners in the Evernote forums once in awhile, if you can ever get them to be serious for even three seconds). But anyways, did I mention it has dark mode? Big beautiful dark mode? Maybe the best dark mode!! I really like OneNote a lot!! ❤❤🐶🐶🌷🌸🌹🌺🌼!!! Yay OneNote!!!" Vaya con whateva...

    Use the Today note as a permanent note. The link never changes. Each morning, backup (duplicate) the Today note to a date labeled note, then refresh for a new day. Also make it a shortcut - accessed by Ctrl+1-9

    Spotlight is a Mac search, works for the whole system and has nothing to do with EN itself. You get it through the search field in the topmost menu/gadget-bar of your Mac, mostly to the right of your screen. This search is used as well by little helper apps like Alfred. With Mojave, it is a known issue that the Mac-side search will only find word in the TITLES of EN notes; not in the note text, not in the attachments and no tags. Even if you rebuild the spotlight search index, this will not improve. The internal search field of EN is available when the Program is open. It is top right inside of the program window. There you search using the internal search index of the EN app itself. This index you can rebuild by holding option, opening Help and pick the first of the additional options. Search can be a little bit off, when it depends on OCR. This is inside of pdf-documents, the yellow markers. Sometimes the OCR will think it identified a word, that in fact is something else. Can happen, especially when the font is weird, print is small or bad quality, or the scan is low resolution. This cuts both ways, it may find words that are not there, and it may not find words that are there. With good scans in typical font sizes, the OCR is reliable.

    That's very normal for Evernote. I waited for the same time when I started to use the enumeration format in EN and noticed that there were tons of bugs. But then... - after a long while - they corrected it. But ok, I cannot demand anything because I don't pay anything. I only pay for products which are nearly bugfree, provide a certain amount of features and react to customers. (Hard to find, I have to admit.) I hope that EN will change in regard to those three aspects.

    To be sure: Which search function do you mean ? The internal search of EN should work fine. If not, see the post above. For me, just reindexing worked fine, without all the other thing needed for an extended repair. Spotlight search of the Mac is not working well on EN notes under Mojave. It will only find text in the header of the notes. Not in the body, not in tags, not in attachments, even when OCRed. For this there is no solution, as far as I know.

    I had a very similar issue after upgrading to Mojave and EN Mac 7.10. After trying a number of things I had to do this: Remove EN Mac 7.11 and ALL supporting files using AppDelete NOTE: If you have any Local Notebooks you want to keep, you MUST first export all of them to ENEX files. Download latest version from Evernote.com, and install After about 4 hours, I had to goto menu Help, holding down OPTION key, and then to Troubleshooting > Recreate Spotlight Search Index . Wait a day or two, and then everything was working fine. If you prefer, you can first try just recreating both Search Indexes shown above. I tried that, seemed to work at first, but then I was still missing some Notes. All of your notes are most likely still there (in the EN Cloud), and maybe even on your Mac, but the faulty index is preventing the EN Mac app from showing them. If you have a Premium account, I highly recommend that you file a support case (see link in my signature below).

    Evernote as a Progressive Web App would make for a fantastic, fluid experience. As far as I can tell the new Web Beta is an attempt to bring desktop features to the web client, a PWA would help build that UX for users. https://developers.google.com/web/progressive-web-apps/

    My philosophy is pretty simple: get Evernote back on the path of developing and shipping quality software, use that as a foundation for accelerating customer-focussed innovation, and thereby put the company onto a sustainable growth trajectory - a trifecta that is ultimately the best combination of things that we can do for our users. All of our community knows that each of those is an undertaking - which makes it easy for me to be transparent with you all about the effort involved, and to involve you all in the process we're going through this year via the Behind the Scenes videos. As I said in January's blog post, we're going to make the product we all know and depend on more worthy of our ongoing affection, although I recognize that in navigating this process we're almost unavoidably going to disappoint some folks based on the places we focus and the choices we make. Our commitment to early beta testing, along with early disclosure of our direction through the videos, is helping us course correct and identify unanticipated challenges as early as possible in the process. Finally, the company continues to be on sound financial footing, getting even sounder this year. We're a private company, so it's relatively easy to throw a bunch of fud around concerning our financials, but two key facts speak for themselves: First, since the statement quoted above that Chris made in 2016, we haven't raised any venture funding. And second, we're still here. A rational interpretation of those easily confirmable facts, coupled with the observation in the New York Times article that I expect us to be profitable on an annual basis for the first time this year, would be that over that time we've been successful in managing our burn rate against cash reserves, and that we're now growing up into profitability. While I know that it's sometimes more entertaining to spin more elaborate theories, it really doesn't need to be - and more importantly, it isn't - any more complicated than that. I continue to appreciate the patience of every one of our users while we work to create a better Evernote, the Evernote that they deserve in return for their commitment. Back to lurking now.

    Dear Evernote, Why are your release notes always written on bring-your-child-to-work-day? Well, I hope they are! Or maybe you're running an apprenticeship and starting them early. Either way, is there any chance that somebody over the age of 12 could be given the job of writing the release notes? Because 'Take that, "Big Paper”!', and ' Yay, buzzwords!', and ' Seems obvious, right? We thought so too.', to me, albeit over the pond (cultural differences?), makes you seem like a bunch of unprofessional clowns.

    Sorry, that was pretty snarky. I do recognize that dark mode is in fact a deal-breaker, essentially a health-and-well-being issue for some people.
