    If you could add this feature, it would make my life complete!!!! So it would be a reminder/alarm at a regular period ie. every Monday at 10am, the last day of each month, every day at midday etc. etc.

    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

    Hmm I counter this problem for a while. It seems to me that I can only change the color of the font rather than the highlight when I call out the "show colors" option under format. Does it mean there is only one color available for highlight at the moment?

    There are several potential culprits around the globe: One is the lousy regime in North Korea. They do not give their own people any access to information, but seem to employ an army of up to 3.000 hackers. These guys work to fill the accounts of Mr.Mighty-Kim by Internet fraud. It is believed they are behind some of the newer threats in the field, like cryptominig Trojans and maybe even some ransomware. The other empire of evil is Russia. Russian hackers will not be prosecuted as long as they „work“ outside of Russia. It is known from some Trojan software that it searches the IP of the computer where it „works“. If the IP is Russian, it deactivates himself. If not, it may roam freely, because the hackers are protected by authorities then. Probably they share a part of their „income“ like other law-biding citizens do. Just two examples for what is happening in this shadowy world. Sorry Dave, these Cyber-Orks will not go out of business any time soon.

    Thanks, @gazumped. I just got one of those today, with the special feature of having all the text run together with meaningless letters between words, apparently trying to defeat a junk filter, which it did not. But my wife saw it and alerted me. It asked for a type of cash card rather than bitcoin. No Webcam on my old monitor, so no threat. But your warning did let me get oriented to what was going on very quickly. However, it used my last name, which is part of the email address, and another very specific word that is part of the email password. That was alarming, and I changed the password right away. Ecch. My prayer for these folks is always that they will be so stunningly unsuccessful at crime that they will have to turn to honest work to support themselves.

    I merged your post with an ongoing discussion If you find a product that works better for you, you should switch For myself, Evernote continues to be the best solution to my requirements >>LOL. Merged with a post that was created 6 years ago. I am not surprised. This further proves my point. Not clear what point Users have been complaining about Evernote features from the beginning, and predicting Evernote's failure (LOL) I repeat my point; if Evernote isn't working for us, don't use it

    Hi, scannable is amazing, I am using scannable software in İpad, but at the same time I have android devices, what about android? Do you release scannable for android version. Thanks for everything

    I don't believe this is meant to include 10 separate users. If you did share an account as you describe, everyone would have access to everyone else's notes, and there would be frequent errors as more than one device tried to access the same account at the same time. Separate basic accounts is a far better way to go. If any single user starts to find the restrictions of the basic account too limiting, then one more more of them could upgrade.

    That’s OK for me ... I get it. First, I am going to translate what I said in my response to your first comment in Spanish, but in English. Here goes: "With this“ old ”interface, I see EVERYTHING COMPLETE and I can also see the MAIN CONTENT (the last notes) of each section. The way I see it, in the "new" version, I only have one icon (I don't know the content of that section). For the rest, beyond the explanation I found in the forums about the changes, is there a SOLID reason why this “old” interface cannot be ADDED -just as an option- to choose THE MODE in which we SEE our contained in a cell phone? By default, there may be that option that you show there. And as an OPTION, the one that I show in the image that I attach ... What is the technical complexity so that, in a new version, there are TWO options (one by default -the new- and the other as OPTION -the “vintage” -)? " Then, I am going to tell you what I think about what you propose. I understand everything you wrote and it seems reasonable to me, but nevertheless I write this because I am an Evernote user (like many other Evernote users), who LOVES this application and finds it EXTREMELY USEFUL. My FUNDAMENTAL objection and that leads me not to update the application, is regarding the HUGE amount of comments that I have read about the loss of notes and the content of the notes. Then, of course, there is the problem that, in my view, is also decisive, and has to do with the use of the NEW user interface: it is less friendly, since you MUST DO MORE STEPS to find a note. And this does not happen, I believe, with the "old" user interface. Finally and not least, for me (although almost no one sees it this way) it is the AESTHETIC BEAUTY of the old user interface. Of course, I understand what you say, without a doubt. Despite this, I ask you again and again, is it very complex (despite all the reasonable explanations you have given me) to put this "vintage" user interface option in a new Evernote update? I send you a greeting and I hope that this option may ever exist in Evernote and that there are no more problems regarding the loss of notes and their contents. THANKS A LOT!

    If it comes to creating a new note the windows shortcut CTRL+ALT+N creates a new note window. CTRL+ALT+V will paste whatever is copied on your clipboard into evernote. I find it really really useful for images and screenshots - I just take a screenshot in windows using WIN+SHIFT+S to get the snipper then as soon as I've snipped what I want I paste to Evernote with CTRL+ALT+V.

    In Windows, Ctrl+Alt+N anywhere opens up a new Evernote note, type, type, type, you're done. Easy, and not any harder than what you suggested, plus it makes it easier to assign a notebook and tags right then, rather than having to figure it out later.

    Running Mojave and evernote will no longer open. It opens for a split second then crashes. I have installed the latest version and reinstalled but no luck. This started after I got rid of Catalina and reinstalled Mojave, I don't know if that matters or how. Thanks

    If you grab voice memos with iOS devices, my proposal would be the app JustPressRecord. You can decide after recording whether you want the result as audio file, text transcript or both. It is available for i-devices and the Watch, which comes in handy because there is no keyboard. There is a Mac app as well - if you are on Catalina, it will transcribe text on the Mac, if on Mojave or older it will just manage the audio files (because older MacOSes lack the function). Transcript then has to be done on an iOS device using the iOS capability to do so. The result needs to be transferred into EN.

    On Windows, if you don't have the arrows on the toolbar, use customize toolbar to add them.

    On Evernote for Windows, the shortcut keys Alt+ArrowLeft and Alt+ArrowRight can be used to navigate to the previous/next note, respectively.

    As I have said on other occasions when Evernote Business features were forced on me, such as having to 'share' notes instead of simply emailing them, I am not a business user. In addition, as a paid Premium user, I don't expect popup ads in my software. I don't want or need any business features and I don't want spaces.

    .. here are my thoughts/experiences. My first note was made 10 years ago June 2009. I've used it entirely for all my personal stuff - travel, finances, kids report cards, music, web clips and on and off I've used it for work stuff - reference materials, meeting notes and even GTD. However, with all the talk and rumors about EN sustainability, I decided to try out alternatives. Here's what I found. 1. Bear. I am an amateur musician (not a very good one). In music a common notation for a sharp is a #. Bear treats this as a tag. So storing your music in bear is a non-starter. You could use other symbols, but why? Also Bear is another company, with a subscription plan that's just younger than EN. Why should Bear last any more than EN? 2. Apple Notes. Pretty good and free. But web clipping is non existent. Scanning is hard. Sync can be slow over icloud. You can't tag easily. Search is limited. 3. Notebooks.app. I really thought this one might be good. Idea is you store your notes in dropbox and then Notebooks creates a little file with meta data (tag, due date etc) for the note. Your notes are in a native format - rtf , pdf, html etc so no proprietary system. People seem to rave about it and it has nice IOS apps. But - no web clipper. There's a script you can use, but it's not great. And the big issue - I imported 1000 notes from EN and while it worked OK ish on the mac, my ipad froze. Suggestion from the developer was - don't put all your notes in one folder. Not helpful. Oh and sync is very very slow because you're layering the app's work on top of dropbox's sync. 4. Devonthink. DT is great if you are writing your manifesto/dissertation/research project and you've got 100s of reference docs (pdfs, clips, notes). DT has OCR and advanced AI to search and find links in all these files. But if you just want to organize some travel details, it is complete overkill. Plus, it's clunky and the learning curve is awful. It's expensive, but there are no ongoing fees. DT is a research grade program. 5. Google Keep. Is a bit of a joke really. 6. Notion. If you like spending a lot of time arranging things on a desktop then it's great. But it's still a proprietary system (unlike notebooks and devonthink where your content is stored in open files). And again - how do you know Notion will be around tomorrow. 7. OneNote. On the Mac it is pretty bad. They finally added search for to-dos, but you can't really create tags. On windows it's pretty good. Exporting from Onenote is not good. For example pdfs get exported as multi page image files. So I am 100% back to evernote. It has issues, sure, it's not perfect, but it's a lot better (at least for me) than the alternatives. Here are a few of my most fave things about Evernote. 1. Drag a note onto another note to create an instant link in that note. This is so awesome - I create master reference notes super easily. 2. You can search for unchecked to-dos. 3. You can save searches. 4. It is fast. 5. Even though your data is in evernote format, my experience has been that if you want to extract it to other programs, you always can. You have an exit strategy. Sure it costs. But I pay for Dropbox, I pay for Lightroom, I don't mind paying for Evernote. If you think you can get a good robust app for no-money then you are kidding yourself. Anyhow, just my 2 cents.

    I think app designers perhaps had in mind touchscreen typers/writers on the iPad so the default font size was quite small and it was fitting for that. If one uses then a wireless keyboard though (which many are starting to use) my eyes are farther from the screen... even if I have my reading glasses with me, it is not that easy to read. Good contrast, brightness, AND bigger fonts are important if one wants to avoid eye strain. So I think, a bigger font is needed. I tried Bear app, migrated all my notes (16000 of them!) And with all the tags included (not the notebooks which I don’t mind) it works! It is a lot better even, with adjustable fonts... As of now, the Bear app is my alternative. If no change happens on this (sounds like a threat, haha sorry), I will definitely migrate.

    This is been honestly, my biggest frustration with using the iOS version of Evernote. It is so difficult to you’ll have the default font size be so small. I am either adjusting the font every time or not even using the app. It’s such a surprise to me that this hasn’t been resolved in the past as I always felt like I was the only one that had difficulty trying to read. And I have 20/20 vision.

    +1 As a Premium user I expect no Ads in my software. You want to send me an email to sell me a feature, OK fine. You want to put a popup in a piece of software I pay for? GTFO Get rid of the popups please.

    Is there a way to remove the reminder that is now constantly occupying my reminder area that encourages you to Try EverNote Business?

    Oh my gosh, yes! I feel livid when I see advertising for Evernote Business after I'm already paying for Evernote Premium. I'm already paying you so that I don't get nagged. Please remove this terrible "feature". Forcing me to click that tiny "X" is not a solution, either. I should not have to do anything to be not nagged by your advertising. Just remove it, please.

    I'd use native linux client too (if it is not yet-another-electron-application). Helping the maintainer of NixNote would be also very nice.

    Funny thing is that this round-and-round is also self-perpetuating. Evernote does not see enough people using Linux being interested in using Evernote, let alone pay for their product so they don't want to spend the resources to develop for that platform. /\ || \/ Linux users doesn't see Evernote being friendly to their platform and so the vast majority will simply stay away and find other solutions (life's too short) and who is going to pay for something that doesn't work on their systems? We can argue back-and-forth until our faces are blue. Linux isn't going to kill Evernote, and Evernote isn't going to kill Linux. What is more indicative is how they manage "other platforms" reflects how they will handle changes in the overall environment. Are they a leader or a follower? Dell has taken a gamble of sorts on Linux on the desktop and it seems to be doing pretty well for them. While Microsoft Windows isn't going to go away anytime soon, it is loosing marketshare and the rising starts are Linux based (Android, ChromeOS, Ubuntu Linux). Is the way Evernote is handling supporting Linux, a growing platform in a declining market, proactive or are they reactive and waiting until the wheel's already turned?

    Something Evernote may wish to look at is the poll on opensource.com that has Evernote with the largest percentage of votes (37%). This Linux and Open Source orientated site should give a fair snapshot and you can see the results of the poll in What's your go-to note-taking app? Now for those using Linux that are ready to bail, you may want to look at the opensource.com article 4 desktop note-taking applications for getting stuff done and 4 open source alternatives to Evernote and see if any of these will better suit you.

    I've been using NixNote2 the last couple of weeks and thought I would share my experience. The release I've been testing is 2.0 Beta 8. It's available in .deb, .rpm and source code. It's a good client, all the basics are there and working. I have never had any crashes or sync problems with it. One nice feature it has over Evernote is that you can view and edit the Note source directly in the client. There are some drawbacks though. In Beta 8 the picture thumbnails aren't working, but according to the author that should be fixed in Beta 9. Side note, it seems then like the thumbnails are not stored on the server, since NixNote generates those, I'm guessing then that Evernote client does the same. So I guess there is a chance of getting different thumbnails in the two clients. The UI isn't as polished, although that isn't a huge deal for me. Web clippings: this is the biggest issue I have. Viewing and editing notes I've created my self in either NixNote or Evernote is not a problem and works perfectly. But NixNote have issues with some web clippings, especially from webpages that are complex. I have a bunch of notes that are completely unreadable in NixNote, but works fine in Evernote. NixNote wont destroy anything, so I'm not worried about it. But this right now is probably the biggest issue for me, since I have about 1000 web clippings in Evernote. It is possible to clean up the html in webclippings to get them working in NixNote, I did that as a test for a couple notes, but I have way too many to make that a real option for me. So for me, I can't completely switch over to NixNote because of that last issue. But for people without a huge amount of web clippings, or perhaps just simple once, I can definitely recommend NixNote.

    Funny you should mention that. On the desktop platforms, if you're logged out of Evernote, you need Internet access to log back in. You have the app and data on your device, but some sort of call to Evernote com is required. My backup solution includes a non-Evernote solution to access my notes. I use an html export to a cloud server.

    I currently have Evernote Premium from a free 1 yr sub from Samsung. I've used Evernote Free for years. I'm trying to justify continuing the premium version. A tightly integrated scanning app would go a long way. I don't use iOS at all. All Android...and Windows. There doesn't appear to be an Android version of Scannable yet. Is there a Windows version? Can Scannable be used with other scanners? I have a Brother MFP w scanner. How can I make that work? Thanks. John

    That make YOU Evernote customers. What you are basically saying is that Evernote is a perfect solution for the specific user base that loves the way Evernote works. I.e. die hard EN fans. Which is fine and true. But there is real competition out there, and has been for a while now. Again, only when you are talking about die hard Evernote users for which, if it doesn't work like Evernote, it's not going to work.

    This needs to happen for Windows users. Great that Dark Theme is out for Android, iOS, OSX, but still missing for Windows. Evernote is the ONLY app in my workflow that doesn't support dark mode in Windows. A lot of the "duplicate threads" also requesting this seem to now be deleted. Please make this happen.
