    No, no socks. But I did get some at my new company - they were part of the holiday gift bag!

    I love Evernote, but it's preventing me from putting in sensitive content. For example, I can't keep a personal journal notebook, because other people (i.e. girlfriend, family members, etc.) could one day be looking at those notes, especially since they know that I use Evernote often for many purposes. Evernote already has the ability to encrypt single notes. This is useful for things like storing passwords or other temporary sensitive content. But it's not practical to encrypt many notes one by one. I wish I could password-protect a whole notebook. This way, I can do a lot more with Evernote. If I can encrypt single notes, then why can't Evernote just allow me to encrypt entire notebooks? If reason behind this is because Evernote thinks one could lose a lot of data if a notebook password is forgotten, then perhaps Evernote can help recover the passwords through email. In the meantime, I'm stuck with using other apps (i.e. Pages, Day One, etc) to password-protect my content. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I just tested this, and I got the same result. The one exception is that in the Beta version of the Evernote Web editor (not the Classic version), the table does not disappear: the material in the table is centered, but the table as a whole remains on the left. The same thing happens with making the text flush to the right margin, or justifying it (in the Windows program). So it does appear to be a bug. May I ask why you want to do this? Generally speaking, although the editor functions of Evernote are improving in the Web version, I doubt that it will ever be a truly sophisticated text formatting tool. It is meant for taking notes (and for storing materials online), but not for well-developed writing projects, which require a real word processor. In my opinion, at any rate.

    Yea this whole evernote "glitch" is terrible. I can't believe they haven't created a fix for this My usage of Evernote has decreased steadily over time and I think I will be leaving the platform altogether. I can't easily see my own notes because it's flooded with things other people have shared with me that I can't delete. You know how bad of a solution it is to make it my responsibility to track down everyone who has shared stuff with me and ask them to unshare/revoke privileges?

    I did restart and the issue was not present on a staff computer using W10. After I posted here I noticed that another unrelated app was throwing up errors in a similar fashion complaining about signing in, I figured it must be a chrome issue. I powerwashed the chromebox and switched to the stable channel, I was using beta, this fixed the issue on both apps. Chrome devs must be trying something different regarding signing into apps that that is causing havoc.

    For some reason that doesn't work on my computer (Windows 10), but I can temporarily enlarge or reduce the font size of any note by using control-plus or control-minus.

    I too have problems with this but I found that the Ctrl-Scroll wheel with the mouse allows me to adjust the display zoom in Evernote (or a browser) so it is easier to read.

    @eric_treelight Thanks for the info. I took a look at your account and the last time an iPhone device was connected to it (Nov 07, 2019). Unfortunately, I'm able to confirm that the access was part of the security incident we've mentioned before where hackers are using passwords from other site compromises to log into accounts and search them for important data like Bitcoin wallets. If you haven't recently, I suggest you change your password to something unique to your Evernote account and enable two-factor authentication. This is the best way a user can secure their account.

    Use the same share dialogue, choose „Print“. When the preview opens, use 2 fingers close together, and „pitch outward“ (as if you want to enlarge the preview). The preview will open, and the full screen is a pdf document, with the pages showing as thumbnails at the side. Use it as you wish through the share button. This is standard in iOS and works in other apps as well - always hidden behind the „Print“ option. Beside this I have installed PDF Creator, an app from readdle. This allows as well to create pdf documents, and shows in the share dialogue.

    I do like the new layout with larger thumbnails, except for one thing: Evernote seems to choose as thumbnail the largest image within a note. But it is rather annoying, for it seldom coincides with the image which would enable me to recognize a note at once. Can I somehow force Evernote to use a specific image as thumbail? Marcelo

    I'm in a totally different browser and OS situation, so I don't know that my experience will be relevant. I just tried using the Web clipper to take a screenshot (I don't usually do so), and it put up a set of cross-hairs to let me select the area to clip, and then even popped up an editing/annotating window to process the clip. So it may be a Chrome or Mac issue. FYI, Web clipper will always create a new note--that's its purpose.

    Or Opera, which is not well known in the U.S. but I think used fairly widely in Europe. Clipping PDFs in Evernote does work there.

    I agree, as I’m getting frustrated with evernote each time I am taking notes and then the screen goes to sleep for whatever reason, I have to go back to the note I was writing in, scroll down to where I was. I feel this is wasting time. I’m using evernote as my main note-taking area and I think that it shouldn’t be doing this. Please fix this issue.

    I found this thread as I was trying to solve the same problem. I too have concluded that there is no complete solution but I would offer the following suggestions which helped me. The main feature that a bookmark has that an article etc may not have is the URL in the text of the note. A clipped article will only have a URL in the body of the note if there was one there in the original website text. Secondly bookmarks are small. While i cannot find a way of searching by size you can sort in order of size and save this view for the saved search (on Windows anyway). In addition a bookmark will not contain a pdf or a jpeg image (if an image is included it is in png format). So: source:web.clip* -resource:image/jpeg -resource:application/pdf http and then sorting by size will at least help. For me it went from 1094 notes just searching on source:web.clip to 234 of which about 90% were genuine bookmark notes; at the top of the list they all were. Once you've used the saved search you can then add additional search criteria (e.g. tags, text etc) in the search box to find what it is that you are looking for. The best solution is probably to remember to add a tag (e.g "bookmark") when you clip, but for going back over existing notes or as a check that you've remembered to tag, this search might be useful. Edit: My more recent notes seem to have the source web.clip7 instead of web.clip. I have therefore amended the search to include source:web.clip*

    LOL 🙂 this is not a feature request, this is a bug that’s been around for years, it’s not a feature request, is not about priority it’s about a known problem that needs to be fixed I assume you know the difference between a feature in a virus or a bug 🙂 you are not providing any solution so please assist in answering my comments thank you , so someone who might know how to fix this can answer or perhaps Evernote Upload sells been decide to answer Part of the The purpose of the forums is to get answers to known problems, you’re not providing an answer sonif could please make room for someone else to make an answer thank you

    Yes that suits your particular use of Evernote. That’s not my use of Evernote. Not everyone has this implementation of Evernote, my implementation is that I make a lot of long notes on a variety of subjects and have to switch between them. Obviously the issue that I described has no impact on you because that’s not your iteration of how you use the application . However no one should assume that anyone else’s use of the application is similar to theirs, and therefore some of it does not bother you, obviously can bother someone else. I appreciate your response but it’s not a solution to a problem, it’s within the application, if there’s a problem within the application in this highly competitive market then Evernote should by now have fix this problem so that they can address the concerns of all of its people, this is a serious problem that needs to be fixed. The note market has become extremely fierce and many great offerings, why would Evernote not choose to live by the highest possible standard, and be competing for the top and best quality in both existing product as well as product roadmap as well as innovation ? The challenge here is there is a problem when you switch between applications in Evernote that causes a certain range of customers to have a serious problem , that has caused a number of us to reconsider options as it does not help us, it is a constant point of aggravation. It’s like saying my front door is broken, but I don’t go out the front door, go out the back door, so I’m gonna leave the front door broken.

    EN acknowledged that the article might be a little misleading and so will look at revising it. They re-iterated that the person who shared it is the only one who can revoke access and thereby remove a shared note from the shared with me section. I think it would be nice if we the recipients had the ability to delete these notes the same way "WhatsApp" (messaging app) allows me to 'delete for me' messages received from others. Copy of EN reply attached below...

    When annotating a PDF that is embedded in a note, the highlight option only provides access to free-hand highlighting. This results in messy highlights and doesn't really fulfill the needs of the tool. Is there any way to simply highlight text that has been selected?

    Dear all, I plan to migrate from OneNote to EN for my daily planning and for my private content and notes, I have upgraded to Premium.... but Password lack is a show stopper for me ! I do not need encryption, I'm not trying to protect from Hackers or terrible cyber criminals !!!! I just want to avoid that my private thoughts and ideas pops up on my desktop or mobile while I am browsing my daily planning. Same I do not want that my kids or other eyes gets access on my private things when they browse on my pc or mobile! So a password protection (not encryption, encryption is not needed, just simple password!!!!) for notebook or sections or notes is what I am asking for. I know I will limit search function, I know I will probably limit integration from other sources (like sending from Outlook to a password protected area), probably also more nice function will be restricted ...... but please, add the function !!! I will decide whether to use it or not, why you decide for me? You are such great developers, why are you so reluctant to include this function... if someone does not want the password, he just have to avoid to use it, isnt' that easy? Hope you will change your mind soon Cheers Richard

    I have been looking at Nimbus for a few months as either a backup to, or a replacement of, EN. I still haven't made the jump, but every time I read about the great new features of Evernote for Business, get a pop-up on the Web app about an EN for Biz feature, or have to remember how to share a note in Android via Email rather than work chat , I get a little closer. To clarify and add to some of gesshoom's post. You can import EN Enex file, but it does a much better job importing the native EXB file. Attachments, tags, etc. all work perfectly. Of course, if you use nested folders, you will have to renest those as EN folders aren't physically connected. As he said, syncing is virtually instant. The Android Widget is much more robust There are offline folders on Android. The default is to download headers and grab Notes as needed, but you can sync everything local and have it all offline if you want. Unlike EN, the app doesn't have the ability to move to External Storage I think the web clipper is as good or better than EN, and the company also has a separate Windows clipper that works very well when outside the browser. The main feature it is lacking that I use frequently is a default import folder, but depending on what I am doing, there are easy workarounds. The tags vs folders argument becomes moot as Nimbus supports both equally well. In response to the "mostly unresponsive support team," I just sent them a feature request. The reply came back within 2 minutes. This is not unusual per my experience. Of the dozen or so emails I have sent them, half came back within minutes, and all but one of the rest were within an hour. The outlier took 6 hours. As far a the pricing is concerned, I have been Premium at EN for years and never touch more than a fraction of the data usage. So, I bought a $5 on month plan at NN to handle the initial import, then I will likely go to the free plan. At this point, the data import per month is the only significant restriction on the free plan. From what I can determine, Nimbus Notes was launched in 2014, but the parent company, Everhelper began about a year before Evernote. EN is still my primary, go-to database, but when my sub comes up in May, I will almost certainly downgrade to Plus if not Free. In the months of testing, NN hasn't been non-responsive at any time, and I find myself going there more and more when I'm waiting for the Not Responding to go away on EN.

    Okay, although I was trying to not sound too spammy by letting people go check it out on their own.... here are my observations: The products are very similar. I would say that Nimbus Note is an OpenSource clone of EV Features specific to NImbus Ability to color notes Ability to encrypt entire notes with different passwords for each note (if you wish) Free account is 100MB with no OCR in attached docs (pdf, xls, word) you can edit clips with the Nimbus clip editor before saving them to nimbus you can import evernote notes via ENEX format table support seems more robust - no cell coloring tho better implementation of to-do's Android: Very clean interface Night/day mode Web clipper and Nimbus Capture are far superior than Android EV. IF I was to rate EV clipping at 75%, then Nimbus is at 95% (regardless of the recent failures to clip anything with Android EV) Syncing seems to be near instantaneous There doesn't seem to be any 'offline' folders on mobile (still testing) Easy to generate an external link for sharing Web Very nice and easy to use web clipper' - see attached image I prefer their note editor to EVs excellent clipper PC - Win10 Nice clean interface supports local database Privacy policy - Not sure I like all aspects - but not too much of a concern if you keep it for research and not too sensitive stuff....BUt you need to determine if this is ok for your use So, this is my eval after 3-4 hours of playing with the 3 versions. Do what you want with this info. I hope I don't sound too spammy !

    Hi all, I'd love something like this also - and I'd like it to work the way carleecomm has described. There could perhaps be some options for how it works, to be slected at the time of clipping - ie whether it 'chunks' several links into a single note the way carleecomm has requested, or whether it simply clips all the pages open in tabs (within a single window) as separate notes. I would certainly find both of these options very useful at different times. Looks like you are beginning to stand in a small crowd, istandalone !!

    I'd like to add a vote for this too! I've been dreaming about how good it would be for ages. Cos it's not just about saving a bunch of web page URLs for later reference. For me, it's wanting to 'chunk' a heap (5-12) of links together that are about the same topic, and I want to bundle them all nicely together with a new note Title and description and tags so I can find it later - AND remember why I wanted to find it later! I've mentioned this to a few people who just don't understand. They tell me to "copy and paste them into a note" as Parisie says above. But creating a new note, then copying and pasting 12 times over takes time. I also don't like cluttering up my browser bookmark folders with the types of URL collections I'm talking about. I've tried it in the past with a folder I called "Temporary" but it just turned into link chaos. So I'm with you, Istandalone. You don't stand alone on this topic!

    For my use, I don't want to bother with any structure for storing my notes; simply add the note to the database, no folder/subfolder/subfoler/subfoder >>but for me, hierarchy is a more logical way to structure content in most cases ... Evernote has realized a minimal hierarchy by introducing stacks, but since these cannot be nested, they represent only one further structural level. Evernote implemented two fields to the note metadata: Notebook and Tags Notebooks are implemented with no hierarchy potential. Tags are implemented with unlimited hierarchy potential I like the hierarchy for organizing tags, but it can only be accessed on selected platforms like Mac and Windows Relational (multiple parents) is even more useful.
