    Fixed it. Something was off with the quoted text. Collapsing the quote allowed me to select the edit option. Thanks again @jefito @Dave-in-Decatur.

    Hi all, Evernote is brilliant - could not navigate life without it!! A feature that I feel is dearly needed and would be tremendous to have is the ability to create an anchor point in notes. eg if I am working on a lengthy note and constantly referring to other notes at the same time I want the ability to specify a point where I am working in that note so I can go straight back to it. Also, when you open a note it goes straight to the start of the note. You always have to scroll down to the bottom of the note to add to it. Many thanks for any comments.

    @mdezrin Though I'm not actually in customer support, I believe the discussion forums are currently intended to be the way in which free users can seek help for issues they are having, or to provide feedback to the Evernote team. I personally wish there were better ways, but I think it comes down to costs. Providing personalized customer support is expensive and due to the sheer size of our free user base, I believe it is cost-prohibitive at this moment. This approach is pretty standard across a lot of internet companies with very large, free customer bases. I've been doing my best to try to get other employees engaged in the discussion boards. Several of our customer support members monitor the boards and respond or triage issues as necessary. But, I think it's invaluable for our non-customer support members to be engaged as well. The posts on here are a great insight into the issues and frustrations that our customers have. I've been able to quickly help address several issues people have run into that would have otherwise been overlooked. I hope this information is helpful. Please continue to provide feedback and I'll do my best to help surface this information to our development teams, specifically the Android team for any beta issues you encounter.

    For editing, the Evernote editor/format is adequate for basic notes I use dedicated editors for serious work; Word/Pages for word processing, Excel/Numbers for spreadsheets, Notability for note-taking on my iPad, ... I am aware of Notion; lots of good editor stuff but imho it does not do a better job at document storage/retrieval >>As a senior poster in the forum, you need to reply based on how the 'average evernote user would use the tool'. No, I don't "need to" do any such thing. I am an experienced Evernote user, and I post my ideas of how to best use the product/service.

    Hi All, I wanted to take some time to announce some changes you’ll be seeing in the discussion forums that we hope will help to improve your experience! First, we will be enabling a feature called Best Answer that will enable the person that starts a thread to mark a specific reply/comment as the ‘Best Answer’. This will then mark the thread as ‘answered’, and enable other users to quickly see that the question has been answered. To mark a reply as a Best Answer simply click on the 'check mark' icon in upper left hand corner of the post you're marking: When marked with a Best Answer, the thread will look like this: Then, you can see the 'Best Answer' clearly marked in list of forum posts: Our hope is that the Best Answer feature will better enable users who are asking questions to get the information they’re looking for, while also enabling users that have similar questions to find that same information more easily. Secondly, we’ve received a lot of feedback on the similarities between the FAQ’s and Best Practices sections. As there is a lot of overlap between the two, we’ll be merging the FAQ’s and Best Practices into a single forum under the banner FAQ's: Best Answers Moving forward, the FAQ's: Best Answers section of the forums will become a repository for the Best Answers we see in the other parts of the forums. Essentially, think of the FAQ's: Best Answers sections as a sort of best answers hall of fame.

    Well, all I can say is these forums are littered with posts of accidental secondary accounts causing notes to "disappear". It is the de facto way to start the debug.

    It definitely wasn't that we weren't allowed to. I think it was a combination of things. People were too busy on other projects or it wasn't really prioritized. I also think most employees didn't take the time, as there wasn't really a "culture" of engaging our customers, as you put it. I can't really say for sure. What I can say now is that the CEO is trying to change that. We've got a senior leader whose title is basically "Voice of the Customer." The CEO is also pushing everybody to think about the customer as we work on initiatives. I think it will take time to get people more engaged, but I'm seeing it a little more already.

    @MatS14, since, as your OP now shows, the same phenomenon is happening in this forum and in the Evernote Web interface, I'd bet the farm (if I still had a farm) that it's something to do with your browser, not with these two (AFAIK) unrelated Websites.

    Two features to greatly improve the note writing and organization experience: Header Styles – Standard header styles, such as Title, Sub-title, Header 1, etc. Medium, Google Docs, and Slack Posts all are great examples of this. You should be able to select these header styles using a click of a button. The current workaround is painful: change font size for the header line, then change font size again to start writing in the smaller font. Note Outline – Once you create headers, these headers can then become a note outline that can easily be navigated. Look to Google Docs for a great example of this. This would greatly help my ability to navigate my more lengthy notes. Please see screenshots below. Hope you consider this! It would be awesome!

    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.

    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.

    I submitted a bug report for this a few days ago. I'm frankly shocked that there has not been any official Evernote response here. This lack of transparency and communication is really inexcusable. It shows a profound lack of interest in customers.

    Perhaps I am being too philosophical about this, but I don't see how anyone can post realistically based on any experience but their own. What is this "average Evernote user"? For myself, I try to perceive the level of understanding of a question being asked, and reply in a way that will help a user on that level (if they're asking for help, which the OP here was not). But I do so based on my own level of experience, which may be more or less than the poster's. And I tend to post based on my own needs for using Evernote, which also may or may not be the same as others'. This thread started out because someone posted that the Evernote Web version was unusably slow on their new Chromebook, so that they need to look for something else. I sort of understand the desire to tell Evernote what they're doing wrong for you, a Basic user who has not paid them a penny to do anything for you, right or wrong. But Evernote is not your girlfriend. You do not need to tell Evernote that you are breaking up with it, and suggest that it could stand to lose a little weight and maybe get a personality transplant. And to suggest (as the OP did) that it is Evernote's job to make it easier for you to do so, for free of course, seems a little ridiculous to me. Summary: it doesn't take a fan-boy to think that some of the complaints here step over the line into the whine-zone; and no one can post based on guessing at an experience other than their own. In my opinion, of course.

    @DTLow With full regards to you being a senior poster here, how long are we going to continue this fan-boy games? How long are we going to live in denial? When someone posts a problem, why do we have to go with 'It works fine with me.', doesn't matter. maybe, it works for you, but in general what is the software experience of Evernote for most users? Are you still living in denial that new tools like Notion have come up, and do a much much better job than Evernote in almost all ways? Do we continue to live in denial that hardly any mentionable 'meaningful features' have come up in Evernote or for that matter, even if EN continues to be focussing on ironing out existing issues ( This has been said from the era of Phil Libin, then O Neill and now Ian small as well), why does it take so long to fire up the app, or to create a note? How much long are we going to live in denial mode?

    I hope that we'll get nice version-specific notes for the beta releases, as we do for the Windows betas. Also -- OT, but... -- is it time for a web client beta forum?

    Hi All, We've just updated the discussion forums with a section dedicated to Evernote Betas! This was done to help us centralize Evernote Beta announcements, as well as the feedback, thoughts, and questions from users specifically regarding Evernote Beta versions, into one location. Also, for those of you who have tested the Evernote Beta for Android in the past, we've moved that Google + community here as Google will no longer be supporting the Google + communities in the future. Please note that these structural changes only affect Evernote Beta announcements, and any announcements regarding GA releases for the Evernote Clients will continue to appear in their regular locations. Let @Shane D. know if you have any questions!

    Anyone have tips on how to get out of Evernote. I've absolutely hit the wall of tolerance for the tool. The interface gets worse with every update, and my team is about to explode with frustration. Any thoughts on how to get out? I'd like to be able to export into something useful, but the XML and HTML export options aren't exactly easy to work with or useful. (Thanks Evernote - one more reminder that it's time to get out.) I might move to Google Drive, or just Dropbox for now, but I want the notebooks in something more useful. Anyone found an easy path?

    Just to follow up on the alternatives: NoteShelf 2 is really what Penultimate was supposed to be. It has the exact same Evernote sync functionality as Penultimate (read-only notes that are automatically updated), but it has full Apple Pencil support and more or less everything GoodNotes and Notability offer. If you are still waiting for a proper update of Penultimate wait no longer and go for NoteShelf 2.

    2 additions: You can as well as set it to „done“ delete the reminder. Then it is „gone“. It will show the last reminders data - so if you have a repetitive task on which you reset the reminder each time, the history will (as far as I have seen) be lost except the last round. To work around this, keep the original copy with the reminder set to „done“, and copy the note plus set a new reminder on the copy. Then the history is documented in the string of copied notes, each with its own set of reminder data.

    I frequently use the Evernote webclipper on my Mac but wanted something which: A. Would work instantly i.e. eliminate the wait for the webclipper to capture, upload and sync the page B. Could be triggered faster with less interaction / fewer mouse clicks than the webclipper So I’ve strung together an alternative solution which instantly clips the full contents of the current browser tab as a long single-page PDF and automatically saves it to the relevant Evernote notebook in the background. There’s no need to wait for clipping or syncing: the browser tab can be closed immediately. I want to explain my solution here, and throw it open to improvements from the community: I’m sure it could be improved! There are really two parts to this solution 1. The ‘trigger’ i.e. how the workflow is activated My approach could be entirely customised or replaced in order to broaden compatibility to Macs without touchbars. There’s probably a way of creating an equivalent trigger for Windows too - if the Windows users on this forum have got suggestions? My approach requires BetterTouchTool (for the Touchbar integration) and Alfred, but could be implemented as a keyboard shortcut or Alfred command, without using BetterTouchTool 2. The automated page capture and upload to Evernote This users Zapier (at least a Starter account), PhantomJSCloud (free for up to 500 pages per day) and a Dropbox account. How the trigger works 1. User taps ‘Evernote elephant’ button on the touchbar 2. User selects destination notebook on the touchbar ("Web Clips") in this example 3. BetterTouchTool runs the following AppleScript tell application "Safari" set _pageURL to the URL of front document as string set _noteTitle to the name of front document as string set _pageTitle to the name of front document as string end tell tell application "Alfred 3" run trigger "webclips" in workflow "com.zapier.alfredbasic" with argument _pageURL tell application "System Events" to key code 36 end tell 4. The AppleScript activates an Alfred Workflow which triggers a Zapier web hook (instructions here on how to set up Alfred with Zapier webhooks How the page capture and upload works 1. The trigger has now activated the Zapier webhook. Your zap should look something like this its fully set up 2. In the Zapier zap, the webhook trigger should be configured as “Catch Hook”, with “Silent Mode” left unticked, and the “Pick off a child key” field left empty 3. The second stage of the Zap is a “Custom Request” for “Webhooks by Zapier”. This will use PhantomJS to capture the page as a PDF. The custom request template should be as follows: Method: POST URL: https://PhantomJsCloud.com/api/browser/v2/Your_PhantomJS_API_Key_Here/ Data Pass Through: No Data: {"url":"ZAPIER_STEP1_QUERY_STRING_NOTE","renderType":"pdf","renderSettings":{"pdfOptions":{"format":"onepage"}},"outputAsJson":false} Unflatten: yes Basic Auth: leave empty Headers: Leave empty 4. The third stage of the zap is to upload the resulting PDF to dropbox. The Zapier template should be: Folder: [your_choice_of_dropbox_folder] File: Select “Step 2, Exists but not shown’ from the dropdown Overwrite: yes Specify File Name: Select ‘Step 1 Querystring Keywords” Specify File Extension: .pdf 5. The final stage is to create a new Evernote note and upload the PDF from Dropbox to Evernote. The Evernote action is ‘Create Note’. The template is: Notebook: select the relevant notebook from the dropdown Title: select `Step 1, Catch Hook, Querystring Note` from the dropdown Content: `Step 1, Catch Hook, Querystring Note` Tags: whatever you want Reminder time: leave blank Reminder Done time: leave blank Attachment: select: Step 3 > Upload File > Direct Media Link Limitations of this solution 1. This solution won’t work with any pages which require a login 2. It requires a separate Alfred workflow and separate Zapier zap for each destination notebook which you want to make available to the TouchBar trigger Obvious room for improvement 1. The current trigger mechanism is pretty inelegant in the way it uses Alfred as a ‘middleman’ to trigger the web hook. I’d prefer to trigger the web hook directly from BetterTouchTool - but couldn’t figure out how to do it. 2. Capture the name of the page, and use that to name the Evernote note and the PDF.

    Hi, In first I want congratulate the Evernote staff for the idea and bring the web application more close to the desktop version. Back to topic , the organization on side bar under notebooks in alphabetical order is not comfortable, specially when using on the desktop version notebooks organized under stack. It takes time to find the right notebook and also with tens of notebooks some names are similar but belong to different topic. Will glad to see improve on that.

    Hi @John in Michigan USA. Our 2FA uses TOTP, which is an algorithm based on HMAC, and does not use any asymmetric algorithm with public/private keys. When a user sets up TOTP 2FA, they scan a code into their google authenticator app. This code is a “shared secret” that both the Evernote Service and the user’s gauth app keep a copy of. This secret is used to generate codes that can be transmitted to authenticate one party to the other. When you send a 2FA code to Evernote, the service uses its copy of the secret to generate a code, and compares your code to it to see if your code is valid. It’s very important that the secret stays safe, which is why it is never transmitted again after 2FA is set up. You can read more about TOTP on Wikipedia.

    Not impressed with the logic section of that code. That code is supposed to be audited before going live. Auditing means testing *all* execution paths or branches of the code. If they couldn't find this logic error in the audit, it wasn't much of an audit. Furthermore, sending out the G Auth code gives up one of the strongest features of Google Auth, a thing that separates it from simple, SMS-based 2FA: only the user can generate codes! Letting the server generate codes is the equivalent of storing the user's password in the clear in the user database...you should always store a salted hash of it, or otherwise prevent server admins from being able to easily discover user passwords for themselves. I guess the lesson is, don't put important stuff like bank info into Evernote! Edit: I should add that I just experienced this bug when logging into the Web interface from a friend's PC. Waterfox browser v. 56.2.8 (64-bit)

    Thanks for the responses, and for the link @Dave-in-Decatur. I'll check it out when I get some time. @gazumped, you're right that there isn't a direct print feature in most Android apps. I suppose what I was hoping for is the standard share feature found in most other apps, where you can then share content from the one app to a selection of other installed apps (including email, SMS, several social media platforms, etc.). In my particular case, because on of my installed apps is the print app from my printer's manufacturer, this share feature allows me to select the print app and use it to print remotely from my phone. In truth, I was surprised (and slightly annoyed/frustrated) that the share button in Evernote has the same design as the share button in other apps but works to only share via Evernote's sharing system. However, I like your suggestion about using Evernote Web and then my browser's share button.

    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!
