    @Ralph77 I'm not certain it would help. You can somewhat disregard that message. About 2 weeks ago, I accidentally upgraded myself to 8.12.2. I haven't seen the issue described here, so perhaps whatever is triggering the problem isn't applying to me. Nonetheless, my circumstances don't present any strong evidence that 8.9.1 avoids the problem. Perhaps it does, but perhaps something else is at fault. It could also be a server-side issue that applies to certain people. I hate this circus. I miss the days when I could upgrade Evernote without fear that the upgrade would include debilitating bugs. There have been too many lately. I really hope Evernote identifies the root cause and fixes it before I run into it, as downgrading, adjusting settings, and re-syncing offline notebooks is not how I want to be spending my time.

    Hello, I love the code block feature that was added. However, I think it has some down falls. Mostly, I think it is lacking in text formatting. An amazing feature would be for Evernote to recognize some popular coding languages and be able to color code variables and other identifiers. At the very least, I wish the code block kept my formatting when I copied and paste from a text editor. I often copy and paste code from SQL management Studio hoping for the color coding to stay, which it does not. If I copy into a normal section, it is fine but, the code block removes the color formatting. (I have tried pasting with match style, does not work). I think this would make Evernote more robust and be able to reach a larger audience. Mainly, extend reach to developers who would like a place to effectively store their code for reuse. Thank you for taking the time to consider this idea!

    Are there any plans to add inline code block (like Markdown's `inline code block`)?

    Hey Gaz, new business card for you.

    I'm referring specifically to the type of hyperlinks like this. To rephrase my question, why doesn't the web app follow the convention from the desktop app? The shortcut documentation does say ctrl + K adds hyperlinks--and every other note taking app uses the same shortcut key, so the habit of using it is ingrained for me. I guess I was just wondering if it was a bug or a feature that never got implemented. Thanks for your responses!

    Just clear cache and storage, then open the app as normal. Unless anyone knows better, I think this is the best way to do a 'zero-day' reinstallation of the same version. You'll need to sign in again and adjust your EN settings to suit your own preferences again. While this doesn't apply specifically to EN, several times when I've cleared/uninstalled then reinstalled apps from Play Store, Google has re-imported all my settings (even log files) for the app. This is by design - it's what happens when you initially setup a new phone so that you can be up and ready in minutes without having to setup the app from scratch. Clearing storage and then just restarting the app (without reinstalling) circumvents this so you'll have a clean installation - which, if you're reinstalling because the app has some kind of issue, is the best course of action.

    My wife and I have a meme for that; goes something like this: "Two great minds with but a single thought. Honey, can I borrow the thought for a little bit now?" Yes, we're easily amused...

    @jefito, looks like we hit on the same point at the same moment. Great minds and all that....

    I'm not sure why they'd do that, and indeed, they relatively recently -- as far as I can tell -- added some new commands to ENScript. Nothing earthshaking, at least for my usage, but still. The new commands: version - display version information listDatabases - lists all local databases to standard output exportDatabase - exports all notebooks into a folder deleteDatabases - deletes the data directory Let's be careful and make sure we're not conflating the common editor with a common UI. The various existing device dependent Evernote UIs encompass more than just the note editing piece of things, which is what the common editor thrust seems to be. Aside from that, sure, there's impetus to provide common functionality across all Evernote platforms (e.g. nested tag hierarchy, which is a part of the recent CEO videos), and that's laudable, but taking away things that work fine on particular platforms (e.g. desktop) just because they don't work on others would be pretty short-sighted, and I'm doubting that that's going to happen any time soon.

    Thank you, @Ralph77 and @mz123. FWIW, I'm pretty confident that the problem was introduced in v. 8.10; at any rate, it only start happening to me shortly after I updated to that version. I will try clearing cache and storage and then uninstalling and reinstalling--not till next week, though, when I have more time.

    Add me to the growing chorus. Using 8.12.2, same symptoms as described by @Ricardo above. I was going to try downgrading the 8.9.1 as @mz123 had said above that the issue wasn't present in that version. Before I try this though, I've cleared cache and storage for 8.12.2 and set it up again (similar to uninstalling/reinstalling, however I think clearing storage is more thorough, since a traditional uninstall/reinstall often retains previous settings as backed up by Google, and who knows, settings may be part of the issue). So far so good - the previously affected note was unaffected after the 'reinstall' and the 'conflicted' version had disappeared. In case it's pertinent, I'm using a Motorola moto G6 running Android 9.

    OneNote can't hold a candle to Evernote, BUT, that being said, I'm very disappointed this IMPORTANT feature seems to be getting NO ATTENTION from the development team. PLEASE IMPLEMENT THIS... OK, I'LL SAY IT AGAIN.... PLEASE!!!

    On a phone press on the three dots and press Open In. Then select Evernote. If Evernote isn't visible add it using the more option. This will add the photo, or any file for that matter, as a note.

    A little late, yes. 😁 The F7 spell checker was killed in v. 6.8, almost two years ago. A full and fully outraged discussion here: There may be others as well. This was part of the Chromium "update"=downgrade fiasco that the Evernote Windows editor is still recovering from. In that thread, a couple of then-current EN employees did chime in. From @Austin G, in this post: And from @dconnet/@dcon, in this post: But as we know, there has been no visible progress, and no updated information, about this worse-than-regrettable situation. As I understand it, this was a programming environment change that the Evernote developers simply had to adapt to, so not their initiative, although not handled or communicated particularly well by them. Now that they are working on a common editor for all platforms, perhaps they will be able to avoid some of the pulling-out-the-rug messes that each individual platform's developers inflict on the rest of the world.

    Just chiming in again to reiterate that I still regard this feature as a must-have. Accidental keystrokes while referring to old notes are a major concern for me. Evernote's familiarity, helpful support team, and convenient image editing features have been a barrier to switching, but OneNote is looking more tempting every day that I can't protect my notes by making them read-only.

    Sorry, but here in the forums you will see people that love notebooks and others that love tags, so that discussion is not something to enter. The main problem is there must be a system, if you allow me to stack, then show me stacks. If you allow multi-levels in tags, then you must show multi-level in tags.

    Yeah, I had the same experience looking for the Attachment button. As with so much, once you know, you know.

    I agree to your evaluation that this is probably not the top priority. Regarding support: I think there is a field of customer requests that can be viewed as a bug complaint, or as a feature request. Way back in my career I hat the opportunity to run a customer service, not in IT but in some smokestack industry. But the issues were not that different, if you put the technical issues aside. My goal as the manager of this entity was always to get input from the customers not only about what is working / or not, but as well about what could / should be improved. So why not make a little virtual flash mob, and get something to the attention of the Helpdesk guys ?

    Hi. Once you have uploaded notes to Evernote, there's no great advantage in deleting duplicates. It takes some effort to find them, and all you gain is some slight efficiency in searches, and -if you use a desktop device- a slightly smaller database file. I prefer to weed out duplicates when I find them as part of a routine search. It helps to tidy up the search results. Hyperlinks in the note body can be removed one note at a time, but not in bulk. Likewise links in the note title - like the source of a clip - can be removed separately. There's no easy way to do either of those things in bulk.

    Hi All, You may have noticed that all threads requesting the ability to lock notes and make them read only have been merged into this thread, regardless of platform specificity. This was done in order to better enable us to quantify and qualify user requests, and amplify their voice. While this does not mean this is a feature that will be coming, we certainly want to relay user feedback/sentiment to our various teams. Moving forward, please put all commentary and votes for the ability to lock notes and make them read only support here!

    I am fully agree. Evernote should: 1) well communicate this change 2) well test all released packages. Currently it looks like mid-school programmer application. But this is not funny for us - users. Last version is far better like month ago, but still have a lot of bugs.

    Yes. We upgraded from CEFv1 to CEFv3. It was painful - the programming model is completely different. (it's also why you see more Evernote processes in task manager)

    @gazumped The inline code block is for example used if you just want to point out a command example. If you, like me, write a lot of tech stuff that feature would be really helpful. Inline example: To show all files in a directory, one would type ls -la and so on Code block example To show all files in a directory, one would type ls -la and so on You see that a code block for short examples breaks the readability?
