    Hi All, Who inspired this video series? What’s next for Evernote? Keep watching to find out. So far in Evernote Behind the Scenes, CEO Ian Small has chatted with designers, engineers, and managers about the work they’re doing to make Evernote better. In this episode, I’ll be turning the tables and directing the questions to Ian. We’ll cover some of the biggest questions I’ve received from the Evernote community, including what we’ve learned, what’s next for this series, and what the Evernote of the future looks like. Subscribe to our channel to follow the journey, and join the conversation on the Evernote Forum!

    I feel on the biggest missing features is native support for Markdown. Please add native Markdown to Evernote.

    Hi all - First, Shane's question relates to the new "checklist" feature which was demonstrated in the second Behind the Scenes video on the new note editor. (Hint: if you haven't seen that video, go watch it now, none of this thread will make sense otherwise! I'll wait until you're done.) Internally, everyone at Evernote can participate in testing by "dogfooding" new builds, so we've all had access to the checklist feature for a while now as our development and design teams work out the kinks in that and other parts of the new Note Editor. So for Shane, it was a reasonable followup question to ask me about one of the features we demonstrated in an earlier BTS video - a feature which created a lot of response from the community. Second, to try to help sort out the apparent confusion around "betas": The Evernote web beta - what I tend to refer to in the videos as the "modern web experience" - is broadly available to any Evernote user and has been in place for about a year now. We still label this build beta because we do not view it yet as feature complete - there are a few key features missing before we would consider it our GA web experience. Nonetheless, as you've seen in a number of the videos, the Evernote web beta is what we are using as the basis for our forward-looking web work. A preview release of the new note editor has been available by invitation only (and under NDA, which is why you haven't heard about it broadly outside of the relevant Behind the Scenes video) to a relatively small audience for the last several months. Over that period, we've been collecting feedback and modifying our implementation in response to that feedback, working on bugs, and converging on performance levels that we are happy with, all while continuing to work through the feature punch list which we believe (based on the feedback we have received to date) will constitute a complete version. At this point, the new note editor has been released as an optional beta to a small % of users who are using our modern web experience (the Evernote web beta). So, as some posts have commented above (and shown screenshots), if you are using the Evernote web beta, you may have access to the note editor beta in the bottom right corner of the window. Early versions of the new note editor have also been bundled into preview releases of an early Windows client, released to a very small number of users by invitation only (and also under NDA). At this point, there is no other way to get access to the new note editor. We are not looking for individuals to sign up to the note editor beta at this point. We have transitioned from small numbers of individual users invited one-by-one to the preview into small percentages of the entire Evernote web user population being given access to the beta. We still have a lot of work to go for the new note editor to be ready for broad release; we appreciate your patience while we continue to work on bugs, performance, and remaining functionality. Third, you can expect *more* betas, not less. One of the things I've been pretty consistent about in our communications is that we're adopting a posture of testing everything we're working on - from very early stages where we test design mockups with individual users, through to very early prototype builds that we test under NDA on an invitation-only basis (thanks to all of you who have been participating and helping in one or more of those), through to phased beta rollouts to larger segments of our audience - all of which happens before we go GA on a particular component. We have restructured the way in which we do development at Evernote so that multiple subsections within the product can be driven independently, which in turn means that we can beta different "parts" of the product independently. Our ability to beta subsections of any build independently of the rest is something that you will see more of in the future. It's part of what we need to be able to do in order for Evernote to return to innovation at speed. Fourth, with respect to tags, my Spidey-sense detects the beginning of a small-scale twister as members of the community, with the best of intentions, take two sentences I said in a video and start to extrapolate what they could possibly mean. If there is an actual twister, it's always wise to take cover. But at the same time, we should probably try to avoid creating man-made twisters when it's not really necessary. In order to attempt to defuse this twister mid-formation, let me re-emphasize what I said on the video: (1) tagging is super important to a big chunk of our users (2) tagging is supported in wildly varying ways across different devices (just try Android vs. iOS, if you don't believe me) and (3) we'd like to take the best of tagging from across various devices and make a more consistent, coherent tagging interface across all devices in the Evernote family. What I specifically didn't say: that we were somehow going to rework the theory of tags. No. Not happening. Fifth, one more observation that I suspect is generally applicable beyond this particular thread: if I say that one of the things we're going to focus on in an *upcoming* episode of Behind the Scenes is topic X, and that episode hasn't aired yet, it's probably a safe bet that whatever you can see in a production version of Evernote you have downloaded today regarding topic X is probably *not* representative of what we're going to talk about. After all, we wouldn't need a Behind the Scenes video series for that... we'd just point you at the software. Hope all that is helpful. I'm going to go back to lurking now, and to lighting off fireworks. To those of you reading this from the US, happy holidays! ian

    Hey All, There are so many things you can put in a new note, it’s hard to know where to begin. We’re working to change that. In this installment of Evernote Behind the Scenes, CEO Ian Small chats with Aiden, a product design manager, about upcoming changes to the all-important “New Note” button. This small adjustment will make note creation more consistent and intuitive across mobile platforms. Subscribe to our channel to follow the journey, and join the conversation on the Evernote Forum!

    Good news on the tech blog. There was a lot of interest and we have some people working on posts. I don't have a specific timeframe, but we should be able to revive it and post new content soon. I'll make sure we post to the discussion forum when we publish the new articles.

    For those that may not have noticed, in the new (beta) web, if you try to change your view option you will see the comment below about a survey. If different views are important to you, it may be worth a little of your time to fill this out and provide Evernote some input.

    Hey, shoutout to super-@Shane D., benevolent overlord, ringmaster and hall monitor of these forums! Thanks for being here, among whatever else you do behind the scenes. And that goes to point up what I really like about these videos: showing us the human faces behind Evernote in an accessible way. It's easy to think of an organization as a faceless entity, walled off from its users & clients. But I know that's wrong -- building software is a human endeavor, with all the attendant problems: personality clashes, egos, uncertainties and all, and getting a team to come together to produce something that's useful to many other humans -- millions in the case of Evernote -- is a pretty impressive thing. So seeing what Everfolks are up to, talking about why they make the design/development choices that they do, how they think about problems, that's all is interesting to me. So no feature suggestions here, no advice on how to run your company, no questions I need answers to. I'm a fan, and have been for 10+ years now. Something in the core concepts of Evernote resonated in me, and they're still there, and I'm glad that Evernote is still here too. Thanks for checking in with us.

    You can turn on On Demand Sync if you like, Tools - Options - Synchronization. Then content is only loaded to your PC when it is accessed. It has some downsides though, slower searches and the risk of losing data if you merge some notes that have not been downloaded. Also, exports don't work well as the data may not be there to export. Trade-offs..

    I've added an option in the next beta for configuring the split size: Default is 2000 mb (2 gb). To disable, set to 0. If the number is low (200 mb or less), there's a good chance that the split size will be larger than the give size since at least 1 note will be in the enex. Otherwise it will keep the enex file sizes below the size limit. This is to fix systems file systems that don't support large files (you'd be surprised how many users are restricted to 2 gb limits) and systems with low memory (or 32 bit OS limits) that can not load and parse such large files. The 200 mb note size limit is still in place and has not been affected. Ideally anything that is exported should be re-imported without error. 😃 The import process does not automatically add the next file in the sequence. If there is a naming conflict, a confirmation dialog will ask if you want to overwrite the file(s).

    You're welcome. Along those lines, here's a simple backup .bat file I use to back up all of my notebooks:to separate .enex archives. @echo off set enbackup=C:\Archives\Evernote\SimpleBackup set notelist=Notebooks.txt set enscript="c:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\ENScript.exe" echo Backing up Evernote notebooks to %enbackup% if not exist %enbackup% md %enbackup% %enscript% listNotebooks >%notelist% rem del /q %enbackup%\*.enex if exist %enbackup%\*.enex (del /q %enbackup%\*.enex) for /F "delims=" %%a in (%notelist%) do (echo %%a... & %enscript% exportnotes /q "notebook:\"%%a\"" /f "%enbackup%\%%a.enex") dir "%enbackup%\*.enex" set enbackup= set notelist= set enscript= You can set the enbackup variable to a directory of your choosing, or just use . to put them in your current directory Edit: also note the explicit pathing to the ENScript.exe program. That may differ from yoru own installation.

    This was a great video! Nice to see some of the changes happening there. I've stopped using Evernote consistently a while back but seeing what improvements are coming down the line really makes me excited about using it more.

    Unfortunately, based on our current architecture and database design, it's NOT an easy change. It comes down to entity relationships (parent-child). Adding multiple levels of notebook nesting in the current architecture is just not doable. We've made certain consolations like Stacks or Spaces (for business customers), but these are basically giving you one additional level via a new entity type (vs. entities being able to relate to entities of the same type). We're currently actively rearchitecting a lot of the system. Changes in the system should allow for more flexibility in the future around entity relationships. I can't speak to any specific initiatives to allow for multiple levels of notebooks, but it should theoretically become easier in the future once we've completed our current work.

    It takes at least 1 minute for the app to respond when opening any note on my Android phone. It takes same time for the app to react when push the create new note button. I reinstalled the app. The problem vanished. After an hour or so, the lags started again.

    Hi all, We were recently advised by LinkedIn that they are making changes to their infrastructure. Unfortunately, this means that after June 30, 2019, third-party apps like Evernote and Scannable will no longer have any access to LinkedIn data. What does this mean? Any LinkedIn profile information you’ve already added to a note will remain. But you won’t be able to see a LinkedIn user’s details, or connect with them, when you scan a new business card in Evernote. You’ll also lose the ability to add content from your own LinkedIn profile to your Evernote account, or see LinkedIn information using our Context feature. What will happen? Within the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out updates for iOS and Android that will remove the LinkedIn connection. You don’t need to take any specific action other than keeping your app up to date. Mac and Windows updates are currently available. If you haven’t updated your mobile app by June 30 (or if you’re using a desktop app) you’ll still see the option to connect to LinkedIn when you scan a business card, but nothing will happen. Despite these changes, we want to be clear about one thing: business card scanning is not going away. You’ll still be able to: Take a picture of a business card and save it in Evernote Add the person to contacts on your mobile device Email your own info to the person Find the business card later using Evernote’s text recognition feature The LinkedIn integration was an awesome feature and we’re sorry to see it go. But we’re still committed to helping you work smarter and keep your life organized. If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to me directly!

    Just want to reiterate the point that building the new editor on WebKit-exclusive functionality is a VERY BAD IDEA. Mozilla is pretty much the last bastion against Google's complete dominance of the browser market. You are actively hurting the concept of an open internet by choosing not to adhere to web standards when building you product.

    I hope the tag restructuring that Ian was talking about (there was a phrase to that effect anyway) is limited to ensuring that tags are available in the same way across all clients, and not to some "improvements" in the theory and application of tags. In Windows Desktop I have cycled through various systems over several years until I now have a combination of notebooks, tags and note titles that define my library of information quite nicely for me. I'd be... unhappy.. if the nature of any of any of those items changed. (Having said which, it's high time tagging in Android was as simple and effective as tagging in Windows.) And hey - while you're into tagging, how about improving Note Linking so we can jump from note to note (and maybe from heading to heading) when browsing our data? But I'm with @PinkElephant. Please spend your cash on engineers, not marketers; and take the time you need to make sure the next iteration of the product is (reasonably) bullet-proof and fit for purpose!

    Thanks for sharing ! Some issues: - Do not start to spend money on a PR agency. Just continue, and spend the money saved on engineers or support staff. - Firefox is the last really alternative browser. They do a good job, you do a good job, and I hope the two of you will be usable together soon. Webclipper is working fine on my Firefox, so I hope the webclient will do as well. - Tag organisation, or organisation in general: There used to be visual tools like Mohio map or Bubble Browser that helped by visualizing the content and structure of an EN database. Both are gone, or seem to be gone (BB is still on the Mac App Store, but it bombs when used. Support mails are not answered). An official tool like this from EN to make the database visual would be great ! Ah and yes: There is a sort of app store (more a Website with links to app providers pages) for apps connected to Evernote. It could need an overhaul, seems to be a little neglected ( https://appcenter.evernote.com/de/ ). - We all (iOS users) hope that there will be a new client to make use of the power of iPadOS when released. More and more people are going iPad only, the pro-series is a very productive tool with tremendous horse power under the hood, but massively underused by apps like EN. I have all of my notes in offline notebooks on my Pro, but I can not even drag & drop content from one note to another. For a start, it would help to be able to open 2 EN sessions in split view, allowing inter-note operations between the 2 Windows. If this helps, make offline notebooks obligatory for this sort of use. - Please Continue to ship when ready. A unfinished new product is of no help to anybody, it is worse than living with the existing one a little longer. And if you want to use up these EN socks I have learned about in the article in the NYT, you could use them when going on camera 🧦 Best regards to you and the team !

    Hello Everyone, We just finished rolling out our 8.11 update to 100% of our Android customers. Improved: - We've spiffed up search to help you find exactly what you’re looking for. Fixed: - The Saved Search shortcut in the home screen was rudely ignoring tag wildcards. We gave it a stern talking-to and it’s behaving itself now. - When you opened a note from search results, text highlighting would sometimes disappear, but that’s a thing of the past. - We made some security updates because, well, it's important. And it feels good.

    Hey everyone, Thanks for all the reports. We've been notified on all our communication channels about the delayed note load times and freezing after our 8.10 update. Our development team is aware and currently working diligently on a resolution. I know this issue is quiet frustrating and affects pretty much any workflow. We definitely understand the pain you all are experiencing currently as this issue is our top priority and we hope to have a fix for this soon.

    The database is not affected by the enex splitting so Acronis will work fine. Enex files are now split when exporting when they reach a certain size. This is to help with export files being so large that they can not be properly imported due to memory restrictions. By default the enex files are split around 2 GB. When the export dialog pops up, it will give an estimated size of the exported data in the title bar. The estimate is for the raw data size and the final size will be slightly larger due to the enex file format.

    Hi everyone - Dropping back out of lurking mode to provide some additional insight and to reflect on some of the threads above…. There is lots of valuable feedback in this discussion - thank you! I’m sorry if we have disappointed some of you with a perceived lack of responsiveness in the comment threads on these videos. As you would probably expect, our top priority is listening for input and watching for new insights that emerge from these forums and also from all the other community and social mechanisms through which these videos are distributed. During initial design, we focus on talking to and learning from individual users. When we move into preview releases, we engage one-on-one with tens and hundreds of users. As we ramp tests to thousands, tens of thousands and ultimately into millions of users, we start looking increasingly to quantitative data to inform how successful we are being because the conversation doesn't scale otherwise. That’s just the simple mechanics of how things need to work at the scale of Evernote. Concretely, the new note editor has been out in preview release with select Evernote web users for the last 75 days, ramping from a few hundred users trialing very early builds to now thousands of users kicking the tires in a larger-scale (but still early) beta. In the private discussion attached to that original preview program, the conversation around some of the same topics raised here has been intense, resulting not just in bug fixes but also in changes in design and implementation that we are still continuing to work on as I type this. Understandably, we have focussed our energy on going back and forth with and supporting users who are evaluating this build for us in the wild. (Some of you on this discussion are also involved in the private preview program discussion; thank you for your feedback and contributions there!) This is not to say that we don’t value your responses to these videos. As I said above, we read every one to look for new insights and observations. In general, I think that the early response to the first few Behind the Scenes videos has proven that our decision to start communicating with the community through this video mechanism has been a good one. However, I recognize that as we increase this style of communication out to you, it naturally bumps up your expectation of our ability to be able to engage both interactively and on a lot of fronts at the same time. We’ll do our best to engage as we are able, but our priorities internally are clear: First and foremost, we need to focus on shipping quality software that delivers the more coherent and consistent Evernote experience that I blogged about earlier this year. We are still relatively early in that process; we have a long way to go. When we are able to engage, we try to prioritize interactions that inform us of how to refine the software in flight, or to identify and eliminate bugs. That means we won’t necessarily be able to circle around to catch everyone up across all the different communication channels and all the threads. Apologies. And finally, I want to get us out of the habit of making promises we don’t meet. I am not a fan of making commitments we're not 100% sure we can deliver on. So unfortunately that means most of your questions about additional feature X, anticipated delivery date Y, and what about Z - no matter how reasonable! - are likely going to go unanswered until we can back up an answer with facts, or better yet, software. I truly appreciate your ongoing patience with us while we focus as much energy as we are able to muster on building a better Evernote for you. We are trying to test everything we are doing early and often. And we continue to listen to the feedback from those tests and to evolve in response to that feedback. Finally, for those of you who have stuck with this post this far… we know tags are super important to a significant percentage of our user base. (As an aside, we’re trying to improve support for them on Evernote implementations where tags are currently and inexplicably somewhat second-class citizens.). Tags in the modern Evernote web environment aren’t hidden behind a click. They have always been shown at the bottom of the note editor screen (a particularly observant s2sailor noticed this in the video - full points!), which is different than where they are on the Windows build or on the Mac build. There are advantages to this, and as has been observed in this thread, there are also clearly some disadvantages as well. This continues to be a source of ongoing discussion internally. Going back to lurking now. And probably shooting another video in my copious spare time... ian

    The latest version release, released on the Play store yesterday and marked as 8.10, is quite horrible. Opening notes, saving notes, adding photos, all cause freezes / crashes. Not every single time, but quite often. Why does Evernote keep releasing such buggy updates? It feels as if even basic testing is not being done.

    Blahblahblah. Just as I figured, they never really said that they "have bugs that are so embedded that they can never be removed", which is what you've been parading around the forums claiming. You either misunderstood what he said, or you made up the bit about "can never be removed" for some reason known only to you (maybe). Please stop. Um, really? We report bugs all the time. Can't understand how an eagle-eyed observer like you could miss that. Did you actually read the article? There are no tech billionaires at Evernote. As for the rest, if I found that a program I was paying for was not fit for my purposes, I'd just stop paying for it and walk away. As it is, Evernote suits my purposes quite well, is generally stable and reliable, so I'm happy to pay for it, and yes, try to help other users solve problems with Evernote, and again, report bugs when I find them. Anyways, good luck with, uh, whatever. Putting you back into my "ignore" cave. Toodles...

    We all read the article, but only you interpreted it to mean that "The New York Times had a piece quoting Evernote people as saying that there are bugs with Evernote that are so embedded that they can never be removed." You and you alone think that it said that. Why should your interpretation take precedence over everyone else's? Everyone on this forum admits there are bugs. That's why (to your last point) we donate our time here. But OK, sarcasm dispenses you and me both from telling the truth (note the recursion). What @PinkElephant said. How come Windows, Word, Firefox, Google Maps, and every other long-existing software keeps issuing updates? Bugs happen, especially in such complex creations. Their removal is a constant process. Of course, if only software makers were as infallible as their users.... Since every program has bugs, therefore no program (by your criteria) is fit for its purpose. But of course, with your unique insight, you may well find the perfect note-taking software for all of our purposes. Please do come back and report when you do. Those of us here who spend our time for free trying to help our fellow users rather than just troll-troll-trolling do so because we hope to make an imperfect experience better. Building community, helpfulness, compassion, sharing ... fun stuff. Man, I hate myself when I troll the trolls.

    .. 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.

    Ian Small seems to be very genuine and transparent. It feels like he is not trying to act like he has all the answers or everything it great, he is really lowering his defenses and coming out as vulnerable as can be for a CEO which is such a rare characteristic lately. Great job with these videos, it is really creating a synergy among the community and the developers in my opinion. Thank you!

    What @gazumped posted is what you should go by. If you want to store something like that in Evernote the best bet would be to put it into Google Drive (if you have the space) and then link it via the Google Drive integration with Evernote. Of course this can also be done with any cloud service really if you just want to throw a link in there.

    @Ian Small, thank you so much for enduring the pain of "sticking needles in my eye" to be on camera and let us hear/see your thoughts. You're doing a great job, and we really appreciate it. Patience is something I've taken to a new level with Evernote. Long before you appeared on the scene, I learned that I could NOT trust a new release of Evernote Mac. So, I stayed with my current version until I could see no one was posing issues about the current version that would impact my critical workflow. Thus, I stayed on EN Mac 6.11.1 for over a year, until finally I felt safe to upgrade to Ver 7.10, and now 7.11. So, while there are a number of fixes and new features I'd love to have, I am more than willing to wait until you can get it right, and release a version with no material bugs. Since I know you read every post here, I'd like to take this opportunity to let you know that the upgrades from EN Mac 6.11.1 to 7.10, and then to 7.11, were very painful, and both gave me a scare that I had lost all of my 20K+ Notes. If you'd like more info on this, I'm sure you have my email address, and I more than welcome any/all follow-up from your and/or your staff on this. Please keep up the good work, and the sharing of behind the scenes videos.

    I was able to chat with support. They are aware of the issue and are working on it. No ETA on a fix was given.

    I prefer the simple and direct approach. Have you tried dragging the tag to the shortcuts list?

    As you can see from the responses, there are as many preferred workflows as there are people. If you want to use Things with Evernote, TaskClone can help - https://www.taskclone.com/evernote-to-things-integration. I'm the developer behind TaskClone and after 7 years, I can assure you, almost nothing is perfect. There are many solutions to similar problems and you just pick one and iterate. Best of luck.

    Try double-quoting the notebook name using the '\' character. e.g.: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\enscript.exe" exportNotes /q notebook:"\"z - 000\"" /f C:\000\aaaa2.enex

    More specifically, Windows dark mode doesn't support the old Win32 style apps, which is what 99% of apps on Windows are. It only supports the UWP, PWA style apps. Evernote could roll their own, but instead of it being a single Dark Mode experience for users, users would have to manually configure each Win32 app, and Evernote (and other dev's) would have to come up with a UI to modify, and support multiple DPI modes, video drivers, etc. It gets to be a mess. I can be done of course, but Windows makes it really really difficult and tedious to do. And I don't think all Store apps can be supported either. There is an Evernote in the store, but it is a Win32 app written with a wrapper so it can be downloaded from the store. I'm not defending Evernote, or Windows. It is just a huge mess. Which is to be expected with an OS that has its roots in the mid-90's.

    I've watched a few of the videos in this series, and regardless of the content I really enjoy the style. To me it's a refreshing change from many of the product videos I watch with regard to my profession.

    In his Search for the Truth; for his Diligent Detective Skills; and for Demonstrating Incredible & Selfless Bravery Under Fire, I award the 'You are Da Man' medal of honour at Identifying the 'True Culprit' of the Issue to @PinkElephant Close runner-ups, honorable mentions, and much much thanks must also be given to @gazumped, @jefito, and @CalS cheers 😉 The Culprit and Real Cause was Not EN, at-least not on its own, but indeed was/is my WiFi ISP Network! PinkElephant 1st suggested it when I started my explorations on this forum, in this post Sync does not work properly Anyway, not much extra thought was given to his comments at the time, however an idea in the back of my mind had sprouted then, which lingered from that moment on, and that was, when I reset/unplugged the power chord from my router, night before everything went awry, the thing I did different was to leave the router disconnected/un-powered all night... where usually I just wait 5-min and reconnect. The idea or aha moment, came at the wee hours this morning, when I was forced to use a different internet browser to access EN Online Chat Support (due to message input box not rendering on Win-Chrome browser), combined with my really dedicated EN-Tech-Support guy Nic, who had also spent hours helping me try to resolve, where he also suggested looking at my ISP as a troubleshooting item (see our email-screencaps attached). Nic at Tech Support really restored my faith in EN Support, was just an unbearable journey to get someone dedicated to the case. I mean they make EN so damn sticky and central to what we do, what do they expect...lol The temporary workaround solution, and suggested trouble shooting step I'd recommend to anyone with a similar issue, was/is to disconnect my PC, from my normal day-to-day router/WiFi/ISP, and instead connect to a different WiFi Network. In my case, my 4G Android Phone via a Mobile HotSpot. Result = I can now sync Large Attached files such as 100 MB Videos, large images etc... and fortunately my Mobile Phone WiFi has good speed and good data/bandwidth allocation. I'm not a Techy but when I look at sections of @enjoybangkok activity log, compared to my own, I notice similarities, see comparisons below, so perhaps he should also try the same. HIS EN ACTIVITY LOG 12:02:19 [ERROR ] [5876] [3800] 0% Can't send HTTP request, error: INTERNET_CONNECTION_RESET 12:02:19 [INFO ] [5876] [4384] Client synchronization finished, status: failed 12:02:19 [ERROR ] [5876] [4384] * error: Could not connect to Evernote server 12:02:19 [INFO ] [5876] [4384] * elapsed time: 1m 20s MY EN ACTIVITY LOG 11:17:58 [ERROR ] [8088] [2128] 0% Can't send HTTP request, error: INTERNET_TIMEOUT 11:17:58 [INFO ] [8088] [2104] Client synchronization finished, status: failed 11:17:58 [ERROR ] [8088] [2104] * error: Could not connect to Evernote server 11:17:58 [INFO ] [8088] [2104] * elapsed time: 2m 28s Unfortunately, and after half-a-day on the phone to my ISP Support today... no amount of factory resetting the router, changing channels or running Ping/Netstat/Trace Route Tests etc to Evernote.com, have identified or fixed the networking WiFi issue. So I am forced to wait a further few days for them to escalate it until they do 'aye karumba'. Will advise once i know more...cheers again

    You can select multiple notes in the Android application. It's not obvious, but if you long-press on a note in the note list, it switches to a view where you can select/deselect notes, and then use a menu to perform certain operations, tag and duplicate, to name a couple. No merge or mass delete at this time though, as far as I can tell.

    More explicit about what can be done = good, use of more of the limited screen space = not so good. UI is often a balance that way. And it's often assumed that UI is less work than the underlying machinations required to get the job done, but it's often really not. Getting it "right" is not an objective process, hence the requirement for user feedback loops. . You need to offer enough access to what the user wants to do without overwhelming them with options or extraneous information. There's a real art that can go into a seemingly simple button.

    For iOS it looks like a nice improvement. At the moment, only 3 options show, only on a long / 3D Touch press, and sometimes you hide part of them with your hand. Looks good to me ! As told there is more to expect on the mobile clients. My favorite would be to be able to pick more than only one note at a time (maybe under the condition to have them downloaded as "offline" before), and do cool stuff like on the desktop clients: joining notes together into one tagging several of them in one go move them as a group to their target notebook etc. This would be a real time saver !

    REQUEST – It would be amazing to have a feature where an image can be selected, and when you right-click (ie, the same way you rotate it, etc.) there could also be an option to override the "largest smallest-dimension" algorithm and set that image as the note's thumbnail. A little background –– One thing I use EN for very heavily is as an artist database for my job. I really like having both a photo of the artist and an example of their artwork at the top of their card. However, when I'm scrolling through snippet or card view, it would be really helpful to have the image of their artwork always be the one to show up. This usually happens but there are a few times where the photo of the artist is used instead. I've read up on the algorithm that chooses the image with the "largest smallest-dimension" (PS, see what I did there with the hyphen? Way clearer that way.) and I am actually OCD enough to try to amend the file sizes to have the algorithm pick the right one. However, even this doesn't seem to work – it's probably me because I guess an algorithm can't lie, but even when I resize the images, it's still not choosing the right one. So my question is – why would that be happening? Could it be that once EN's algorithm chooses an image, it always chooses that filename even when the size changes? But what would be SO MUCH EASIER is my *request* – could there be an override option to the largest smallest-dimension algorithm (which I agree does work at least half of the time for me) to choose a thumbnail? I'm not talking some fancy thing in the settings where you tell EN how to pick your thumbnails – that sounds like way more work than it's worth. I just imagine, like I've said above, having the image you want to be the thumbnail highlighted/selected, then right click (in the same way that you can rotate an image, etc.) and have something like "set as note thumbnail." Please?? Thank you!
