  1. I am continually disappointed when writing a note on IOS and switching to a different application to cross reference something and when i switch back to Evernote the app is not on the note I was working on. Can something be done to stop the app resetting and going back to the search screen every time?

  2. 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

  3. Sublime is a plain text editor. Google Docs pasted exactly as EN did. Your 2nd paste was paste-as-plain-text - that's different. What's missing in EN is Google's paste-as-plain-text. (I'm never sure what paste-and-match-style does - I don't use it) What I do for things like that is paste into a plain editor (notepad, sublime, vim, etc), then select the text there and copy it. That puts plain text on the clipboard and removes any other format that EN may attempt first. (EN will always use html before plain text if it is available)

  4. Is this Windows? Mac? Web? I see that the Android app has them, though they only appear when they apply. To tell the truth, I always use Ctrl+Z and Ctrl+Y; these are about as common in all Windows editing programs as they get, even in web-based applications. They're pretty hard-wired into my fingers at this point...

  5. I agree with @PinkElephant, just start using CTRL-SHIFT-V (Windows) or CMD-SHIFT-V (Mac), and I think before long it will become muscle memory. It has for me, and I don't even have to really "think" about it when I want to paste and match style. BTW, on the Mac, CMD-SHIFT-V is used by most Mac apps to paste and match style. I have created my own shortcut key to match for the very few that are not, so no matter which Mac app I'm in the shortcut is the same.

  6. I solved the problem by using a URL shortener (tinyurl.com) with Chrome. Shortened url's work fine within Evernote and the created PDF. Even though this worked, I would like to know if there is a better solution that does not require a url shortener.

  7. The way the free personal premium accounts are managed changed a little bit ago. From your business account, go into the Admin Console and then Manage Users. You will see all the business users there and there will be a message saying something along the lines of "gift code". Follow the instructions there and it will email the code to that particular user. After they receive the email they will be able to set up their premium account. The code email should have instructions on how to claim it.

  9. Okay, so perhaps the same thing happened to me. After great frustration, updating the app, and uninstalling/reinstalling, in tapping around all of the various options in the Android app, I tapped on the a icon at the top of the page (between the redo icon in the attachments icon). Lo and behold, the formatting toolbar is back! A bit embarrassing, but I thought I'd share it in case this is the issue you're facing too. 🙄

  10. Thanks for all the thoughtful helps & suggestions here, y'all! Love that Evernote has such a supportive community. ps - I've been lurking around Evernote for years & just recently decided to try to make it part of my workflow.

  11. Evernote uses notebooks to identify notes as - sync'd/local - private/shared - offline - default notebook I basically use two notebooks; @Inbox and FilingCabinet >>notebooks look like a one-tier folder system to me, and a folder system should be unnecessary with tags. Two tiers; stacks/notebooks No support for folders, but they can be emulated using the notebook/tag trees in the sidebar

  12. Hi, If you go to Notebook view on the new web client and select the three dots there is an add to stack option including the option to create a new one.

  13. Yes, this is a real problem. For me, specifically: I use Evernote primarily to take notes on books I'm reading. Normally, I start each note with the page number followed by a period. On MacOS, this works fine. But on Android it starts a formatted list, which I do not want. Please, please make it possible to disable automatic numbering!

  14. It's uncomfortable to look at the bottom of your screen when typing so I often have to type many returns so that my text appears in the top half of my screen. An example of this is really well done by VS Code where you can scroll past your notes and it gets caught (kind of like an anchor) by the last text that was written.

  15. Update: Following up to this - from a practical perspective with a collection of over 75K plus notes in catalogue - please consider that this does not really work using a manual approach... ... Unless of course I do nothing but Evernote dedupe for this next 2000 hours... Cheers! Still not satisfied, David

  16. I appreciate your reply! And I thought of what you said here just after I posted my comment. That being said, I did find elsewhere in the Forums a link to 7.2.3 which that user (I believe an employee) said worked with El Cap. I downloaded it, and I concur: 7.2.3 has been working for me (for a day anyway!) with no problems on this installation of El Capitan. Still, while I understand what you're saying about there being ways to find it, and the possible "liability" perhaps that might be implied, I can tell you that other software vendors, like Intuit, make available earlier versions of QuickBoo

  17. @k9gardner - I'm not a MacOS user, so can't comment on the 'best' version to try, but if 7.2.1 is working for you and someone higher up this thread was suggesting 6.13.3, it looks like you are ahead of the curve anyway. Evernote have already stated they're not supporting older MacOS builds before 10.12, so I don't think they're in a position to say 'this works for such and such version" because that statement in itself lays them open to complaints of "I'm having issues with your suggested version, how do I fix them" and puts them straight back into supporting older OS's.

  18. Hi. Duplicate note searches have been requested, but I don't see the point. If and when I see a duplication from an active search, I'll delete the duplicate. It does me no active good to do so, other than to thin down my 'found' list and the overall database size (very slightly). Why bother to do a specific search? It will take time to find and verify any duplications - which may then prevent my needing to delete some duplications in future. And duplications may be difficult to verify sometimes if the same page has been copied at different times. There is already a method for fin

  19. . My two cents on this thread... Again. I'm using Evernote and Onenote on both my Surface and my Galaxy Note. What I can say about both is that Onenote is wonderful when it comes to annotating any kind of document, while it literally sucks at anything else and especially at syncing to/from the cloud, since it does it through Onedrive which is an incredible bottleneck. Evernote on the contrary is light-years away with its smooth and blazing fast sync mode and its overall much more solid storage, search and retrieval routines. In my humble opinion EN should really do all that it can to get

  20. Please take pdf expert as template. Pdf Annotation is sensational. I regularly use it for board sessions etc. Minimum is: - highliting text, strike out, color marker - handwritten annotation - insert pages in pdf (for extended notes) Also for notetaking miltiple pages woild be helpful.

  21. I agree completely with these post. I'd love to see the PDF annotation capabilities enhanced to allow written annotations similar to Notability and other apps. I annotate PDFs frequently, and I'm currently searching for a solution in the absence of support from Evernote. I'm reluctant to move to another app as it means I'd probably be storing data in two different forms and systems. I like to have all my notes together, so I'm debating a complete move to another platform with disappointment I may have to use Evernote to access legacy work. Any recommendations from others struggling

  22. I agree. Now, when I want to markup PDFs, I open them in Notability, work on them, then share them back to Evernote. Notability handles PDF markup really rely well.

  23. Not true that you cannot save Adobe reader files into Evernote, it just takes a bit of set-up. Here is at least one way to do it, there may be others. Essentially Adobe Reader opens a read-only copy of the pdf file, but you can make changes to it and save those changes. The key to making this work is to simply replace your original pdf with the one that is edited in Adobe, each time you open, edit an save it. This works for EN desktop, not sure if it would work if you only use online edition. 1 - Save pdf to Evernote 2 - Make sure adobe reader is set to be the default pdf
