    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.

    Hi... Tried EN many moons ago, then went with OneNote but EN's cloud and accessible anywhere features are bringing me back...Enough kudos... Is there a way to mark a note as "read-only" so I cannot accidentally erase or modify it? Thanks. Alex

    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.

    Hi gazumped! Thank you for responding! I do not use Cortana in any regard. I've tested and compared it to the other native dictation embedded in Windows 10 settings, and the non-Cortana option recognized words much better. I have a friend who has a disability where he has no hands, and he uses this exclusively. Even with his slight Dutch accent, it works for him flawlessly, as it also does with me. You can see what I'm talking about by accessing settings > time & language > speech. This is where you configure a microphone to work with dictation. After that is finished, to access the dictation function, you simply press ⊞ + H on your keyboard for the dictation toolbar to pop up. You turn the microphone listening by toggling the microphone icon, and shut off dictation by pressing ⊞ + H again. I'll attach some screenshots for you to see, along with this link to an explanation from Microsoft! Thanks again for your time!

    FYI, Evernote support have acknowledged the issue and has been reported by other users too. They said they are working on it but there is no estimated timeframe so we can just wait for a fix whenever they decide to roll it out..

    I really think Evernote needs to get a comment feature like the one found of Google docs. It is so helpful for writing essays to have parts commented on the side as reminders/ extra bits of info. Everything else about the platform is superb!

    Evernote provides a note editor with a basic featureset. It's not the tool/format I'd use for writing essays

    Thanks, I can see the advantage of that. Personally, I'm not distracted by the toolbar, and there are a few things on it that go beyond formatting selected text (insert table, divider line, attachment, audio, picture). But of course all of those less-common actions could be done from a menu. It might be good to post this and other ideas in the feature request forum: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/449-product-feedbackfeature-requests/.

    I use Evernote for Windows but also totally agree with the comment. Adding side comments to notes is an essential feature, I find adding comments as normal text quite frustrating. Is there any place to send request for future features directly to Evernote?

    Alright! Thanks a lot. It’s sad they don’t have this for other platforms.

    My dyslexic girlfriend sat down to write some of her life stories. She was using Word. I suggested she use Evernote, as that way she couldn't lose her writing. Then she asked if Grammarly worked in Evernote. I came here and it seems the answer is NO, no Grammarly in Evernote. Grammarly is a writing game-changer for dyslexic people. Please add support for it to work in Evernote. Perhaps Grammarly will work in the web version of Evernote, as others suggest in this thread.

    Hi, I am a user of Evernote Premium and I love the core Evernote ideology of having the best search around. However, I am very interested in using evernote for digital note taking via handwriting on a Samsung tablet with s-pen. The following are a few features that would make this functionality much more useful to me: 1. More stroke width options - The smallest stroke width is still way too big for me. I want to be able to write small. 2. Ability to set background to lined paper 3. Support for pressure sensitive input from s-pen, asus pen, etc. 4. Ability to zoom in/out and pan - Currently it just lets me add pages. I do not like writing close to the edges of the tablet because it is not comfortable when I am writing on the couch. 5. More pen colors and highlighting. Upvote if you also want one or more of these features. Thank you for making my experience the best it can be. Please let me know if any of this functionality is in the works or when I could expect to see these.

    Your last sentence, which I assume meant to be that users "who" are unable to work with this paradigm...? Assuming that is the case, this raises an issue or two that I see all over these boards, and, to some meaningful extent, in the EN helpbase: there seems to be a presumption of a level of technical competence that is wildly unrepresentative of even those interested in technical solutions to personal knowledge management, much less the average person out there looking for a good way to keep track of things. In the universe that is non-coders/non-developers, I am probably in the top couple of percent in tech comfort and competence. But so many of the workarounds described on this board, and running one's own scripts, etc., are simply not reasonable to expect of a broad base of users. And the assumption that it is, or should be, will necessarily alienate users and potential users. comfort with change and flexibility in terminology. Again, I'm pretty good with this, but the formal help from EN help resources, as well as the conversations here ("EN doesn't do "folders"; we use notebooks. Well, guess what? For the average end-user, they function in the same way. So it's pretty rude to be snide about it. And it would be to EN's advantage to have materials out there that explain how things that may appear identical aren't, and vice-versa. No reason to be afraid of diluting the nomenclature by describing its more familiar analog. Another example is the information available to a new user about how tabs function. Once I figured out a concept for them that worked for me (3-dimensional organization is how I view a system like this in which tags are at least as powerful (if not more) as more traditionally styled organizational methodologies. And YES, most people in the world are not so familiar with tags and good protocols for using them as the user base that haunts these discussion boards or that creates EN, it is clear. And even to me, seeing the apparently manual sorts and searches by users here that are clearly made outside the EN-offered UI is rather like receiving an answer written in the Cyrillic alphabet. This may not be the appropriate place to raise these points (interestingly, these Discussion Boards are not super-well organized). They are larger than specific functionality or user experiences, but they go a long way to making EN off-putting to many - more than you might think. A little less "this is for people like us" - filling out the help section, not being afraid to explain the unknown in relation or contrast to the known, and answering questions to people clearly new or not highly technical or willing or able to put in the hours and days and weeks to acquire a working familiarity with the non-basic fundamentals of how tech behaves, in plain English, not semi-jargon, would benefit both EN and its users/potential users.

    I am with you buddy, start migrating from evernote to onenote too ! 😎 We have requested dark mode for windows since 7 years ago and look they just dont care about our feedback. now microsoft launched DARK MODE on ONENOTE ! microsoft knows that dark mode is really important for us and most likely will beat EVERNOTE because for feature they underestimated or ignored (7 years and still counting proves obviously evernote team think dark mode is just not important) Let's see how much user will started leaving like us and move to onenote just because of dark mode. When total users keep declining, then evernote will regret their decision.

    Hi All, You may have noticed that all threads requesting the ability to use text collapse/outlining 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 use text collapse/outlining here!

    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.

    I love Evernote but don't like that they have not listened to this request that has been around for several years so I canceled my premium and am no longer using it.

    This isn't just a night owls/dark room thing. I regularly prefer non-white backgrounds while working during the day in a regularly lit room. Evernote offers so much; but not so much as one alternate theme? SERIOUSLY? Please implement this ASAP. It can't possibly be much work in the scheme of things.
