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

    I am not a huge fan of the great amount of light grey text. It is hard to read for people who are not 20-year-old programmers using a huge screen. I get that it is useful for unavailable menu items, but text should be black for available menu items which is not the case for e.g. the Insert drop down menu. Also, notes snippet would be better readable with darker text with not only the heading in black.

    I have the current beta installed on my mobile and the search function has stopped working. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and still nothing. When I start a search it looks like it is trying but nothing comes back. Huawei P20 Pro.

    I believe the tone of the release notes is intended to make Evernote personable. This is definitely not unique to Evernote, and we've received a number of positive responses to them as well. Given that past sentiment on the board was that Evernote was not taking any interest in users and not communicating, I think any attempts by the company to have a more personal conversation is a good thing. I personally enjoy the tone. The notes still convey what was changed, just with a little extra fun.

    Having done all things IT for many years, it is disheartening not only that this is going on for so long (and making mobile access unusable), but that the official answer is "install this app from a rando third party site / AWS Dropbox, then enter the password that rules your life". Is it legitimate? Most likely. Is it sketchy when messing with your most critical data? Yep. Did someone figure out how we will be notified when we can reinstall from the Play store?

    Hi all! Evernote version 8.20 is now available on the App Store! We welcome any feedback, thanks! It was a day like any other. Until you tried to create a note in a shared notebook, and the app suddenly crashed. You fell to your knees, pounded your fists on the floor, and cried out in despair, “Whyyy? Why, in the name of all that is good and decent, can’t they just fix that?” We’ve got great news: we fixed that.

    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.

    With a bug this serious, Evernote should have rolled back code in its entirety to the previous version 1 hour after discovering the bug, in my opinion. If one uses Evernote as it was intended, designed, and marketed, it's simply unusable without a functioning search. One can't use a second brain if one has no idea how to find anything in it.

    Hey folks, We've received some reports of users logging into the new Evernote Web and noticing their accounts are not displaying some notes and notebooks, even though these notes exist in their accounts and display in other devices. This is a known problem that we're addressing. If you run into this there are two solutions to resolve it: The simple solution is to log out of Evernote and log back in using a supported browser such as Google Chrome, Opera or Safari if you're on a Mac. If this doesn't resolve the problem for you, open the JavaScript console in your browser, type Cupboard.clear() and press Enter. After this refresh the browser page. We apologize for the inconvenience, but know that we're aware of it and working on a few things that will ultimately address this. Thanks,

    Dear Evernote, Why are your release notes always written on bring-your-child-to-work-day? Well, I hope they are! Or maybe you're running an apprenticeship and starting them early. Either way, is there any chance that somebody over the age of 12 could be given the job of writing the release notes? Because 'Take that, "Big Paper”!', and ' Yay, buzzwords!', and ' Seems obvious, right? We thought so too.', to me, albeit over the pond (cultural differences?), makes you seem like a bunch of unprofessional clowns.

    Tried to use Notion exclusively for 2 months but now see myself going back to Evernote. The biggest challenge is getting information into Notion quickly. The organizational freedom in Notion is great, but I ended up spending too much time trying to figure out the best way to organize data as opposed to working with it. It did help me simplify how I use Evernote going forward, so in that regard it was a useful exercise.

    Howdy. I just wanted to provide feedback on how amazing Evernote's tables are. I just used them for the first time, and am blown away by how quick and easy it is to add/delete rows/columns, and format colours. I wish every program handled tables this way. An example of not realizing how unnecessarily hard things are until you see someone do it the right way. Good work.

    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.

    The database is an Sqlite database. Every time you type anything, that data has to be recorded in the database. Putting the database on a low speed interface is (as they say) a "very bad idea". Also, the drive it's on must support file locking - so network drives are also a "very bad idea".

    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!

    Android version: 7, Rom name: Superman-Rom, Rom Date: 23.12.17 Edit: My current version in evernote App under Settings / Support displays "current version is 8.9" This has been happening for about 2 weeks and today I decided to reinstall Evernote app and is still not working I have seen a similar problem in this topic with no apparently solution and I am not sure that is the same problem: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/119365-search-not-working/ I type any search and a circle starts spinning like searching but that goes forever. Also, In the left menu, the syncing animation that displays a circle of 2 arrows running clockwise is displaying "OFFLINE SEARCH INDEXING" The main purpose of evernote is to search and if it does not search what is the point of having it. I went to the web and in the web works fine, and in the Windows desktop platform also works fine. Thanks for any hint to solve this big problem.

    I recognize Evernote is used in many different ways, but personally I think that the power of Evernote tags is in filtering. IOW, instead of trying to define a structure such as "Taxes", "Taxes-2018", "Taxes-2019", simply have tags "Taxes", "2018", "2019". Then, when you are searching for tax-related notes, filter first by the tag "Taxes" and then add to the filtered search which year tag corresponds to the search you want. The power of this is that the year tags "2018", "2019", etc. can also be used as filters for completely different searches. For example, you may have a tag "Journal" or "Correspondence" with the year tags to helpfully categorize which years those notes fall under. So instead of trying to figure out some complicated tag structure like… Correspondence Correspondence-2018 Correspondence-2019 Journal Journal-2018 Journal-2019 Taxes Taxes-2018 Taxes-2019 You could simply have the following list of tags… 2018 2019 Correspondence Journal Taxes Note: I use special characters before certain tags for major areas of work, life, etc.

    Six years ago I gave them a 5 star review. Since then, I've updated the review each year. Any year that included one or more long-standing, reported and well-documented bugs, I deducted a star from my review, and wrote about the problem in the review. I am now at 1 star, been there since last year. What's worse: at least 1/3 of these bugs are regressions -- by which I man a bug that occurred in a feature that as working fine in the previous version, a bug that could have been solved by simply rolling back the change(s) in the relevant code section(s) so that the feature resumes working again. Any team with basic source control and non-spaghetti code can easily do this. Plus, they should be doing regression testing, so that when a change causes a previously identified bug to re-occur, the team spots that right away instead of waiting for users to leave/complain. <insert broken record emoji>

    Hi all, I’m excited to announce the launch of our new, free, Evernote for Gmail add-on! Many of us find ourselves buried under inbox overload—that frustrating situation where emails pile up faster than we can read them. With this new integration, you can take the important emails out of your inbox and into Evernote, where you can get organized, make a plan, and take the next step. You can also insert the notes you create into your email as a public link anyone can view to keep everyone on the same page. With the Evernote for Gmail add-on, you can bring the best out of your inbox. Please click here to learn more. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

    On Macs, only the metadata is stored in the database (LocalNoteStore.sqlite) The note contents and attachments remain in the file system, a separate folder for each note.

    Hi. See above: deleted notes = trash folder. Plus see personal backups, other devices and (if a subscriber, and the deletion is only partial) Note History. iOS also already has an undo function.

    Just updated to latest version. Search bug has been fixed but was angered to read the update log. "Search in EV is awesome. Deep in our hearts we knew it could be awesomer". They refuse to acknowledge the pain and frustration caused to their paid customers for over 1 month! Deep in my heart in know Evernote doesn't give a damn about it's users. It's abundantly clear now!

    The way that this generally works is that, when copying to the clipboard, an application can put the clip onto the clipboard in one or more formats. Then, when pasting, Evernote will scan the available formats, and pick whichever one works best for Evernote. Evernote does not scan to try to detect code clips in text, and I don't know of any code editors that generate such a "code" format. You can examine what formats are available using one of any number of clipboard viewer utilities I(I have something called "Free Clipboard Viewer 3.0). So, for example, with Visual Studio, a copy operation will put the text onto the clipboard in several formats, including, most importantly, Text, OEM Text, Unicode Text, and Rich Text. On the other end: as far as I can tell, Evernote will choose Rich Text if it's there, because when I paste into a standard text area of Evernote, I get monospaced (Consolas in my case, which is what I'm using in VS), colored text from syntax-colored source. But the code block is currently "special" in that it doesn't use the colors, and -- I think -- uses a standard monospace typeface (Monaco). That's the way it works right now, and I doubt very much that they're going to specially change that behavior and release it within a week...

    Evernote: you neglect to tell the users to set Evernote on Android to NOT allow updates after downgrade to 8.8.1. Unless I am wrong, please do this.

    Some counterpoints to your response: I suspect you were slower to ask for help. I asked for help, and over a week went by before I received a reply like you did. I suffered with the bug for 2 weeks in disbelief that it was taking so long for Evernote to act, then waited another week after contacting support before this solution was offered. The path to get to this workaround was painful. I was first offered no solution ("we're working on a fix"). After repeatedly asking for a previous version's APK or a refund, I was eventually offered links to a third-party APK download site by an Evernote employee! I understand software development too. Reverting to a previously released version immediately was (and still is!) the best solution. After all, support is offering exactly that to users. Within hours of discovering this bug and understanding its impact, Evernote could have simply re-released the previous APK as the next update. They still can, and should. They can then work on implementing a bug fix into the next release version at their leisure. I understand that new release development requires testing, etc. However, a re-release is not the same. Reverting code to a previous version is technically simple, and requires no additional development or testing. It's simply like an undo-change. Put another way, it's like simply delaying a release further, or pulling an unauthorized release. It doesn't require business analysis, QA, or dev ops, in more than a trivial way. There is no excuse for Evernote eliminating a mission-critical feature from what is arguably their most important platform, for an entire month (and counting). I don't care how much they innovate their software, or how much that innovation will be delayed by doing what I described above. If one can't search, the app is nearly useless to a large portion of users. New features and rapid development are nice, but they are not so nice as to allow the software to become useless to users for a month. So, I quite disagree with your post.

    Hey Everyone, Just wanted to give you a quick update on this. We've been seeing an increase in search issues reported on Android and our development team is aware of the problem and currently working on getting a fix for this out asap. I know how inconvenient this issue is to many of your workflows but we appreciate your continued patience and understanding while we work on releasing the fix.

    This morning Mozilla became aware of the issue with Firefox add-ons. Mozilla requires they will be digitally signed to improve security. The certificate they use to make it happen had expired, which lead to the add-ons being disabled. You can follow the steps described in Add-ons disabled or fail to install on Firefox to solve this problem. Good luck.

    My impression is that you insist on being on the right track with treating an SD-card as a replacement for a HD - or even a SSD. Because I will not convince you of anything else, do what I did right now: - Go to the Microsoft specs for the Surface Pro 6, stating it has a MicroSDXC-slot - Then go to Wikipedia, searching for MicroSDXC, and read the specs Hint: Even the highest class of today’s SD-cards run the same max speed as my 5 years old 2.5“-HDD WD-my-passport on USB 3.0. And then there is an issue how these high-speed cards have to be initialized before they take up speed. No way to get close to a decent internal HDD, not even thinking about a SSD. But as I say: Because you insist, get the information yourself. And next time buy more disk space ...

    well, its a major inconvenience having this issue going on for so long. guess its time to start up a google keep notes. Evernote please get back to the core and keep that working before trying to appease people who may or may not ever use your service.

    A thing that's been bothering me in this great service ever since I started using it 2 years ago, is that it is not possible to set a sorting order for a specific notebook. To me this seems very basic, so I was very disappointed that it's still not available in the new beta. I mean, am I the only one who wants my receipts ordered by date and my recipes ordered by title? My family photos ordered by date and my art photos ordered by title? I do sincerely hope this can be implemented!! Once again, thanks for the great software.

    Thanks, Wux! EN could have done a few things. How about sending an email to all Android users with the temporary fix info? How about releasing an "update" to the Play Store that simply reverts to the previous build, and again sending an email to all Android users with a link to the (broken) newer version, if they really want it? How about being more responsive when folks are struggling with this search issue and reporting it to EN over and over? So yes, bugs happen - we are aware of this. How it's handled can make a huge difference.

    I have to agree too. They broke the search in a note keeping app and just don't seem to care that one of the most important features of such an app is now unusable.

    I want to thank all of you for trying to help. I finally got my notes back. I was really getting so discouraged and I finally clicked on go back to the old version and believe it or not, that brought all of my notes back! I was very skeptical that would work, but it did so I'm happy now, and can finally move on. Thanks again!

    We try to avoid this style upgrade - as I noted, we re-release Beta3. So MSI sees this new version as the same version as the old Beta3 - this is the same-version upgrade path. It's not very user friendly, so we try to avoid ever doing this publicly. However, the old Beta3 has a newer version of CEF - so any upgrade from that would cause "very bad things" to happen (because we would be violating MSI component rules). We made a conscious decision to inflict that same-version upgrade so the CEF dll downgrade would properly install. Probably as clear as mud now. tl;dr: Installers are hard. Downgrading files during an upgrade is harder.

    Right on point. Why should we, paying customers try to downgrade or whatsoever? It should be the first thing a reputable company should have done.

    If Windows 10 doesn't support dark mode, as purported by several Evernote replies to this topic, then how is it possible to configure the left panel as dark in the Windows client? Tools > Options > General > User Interface > 'left panel theme dark'? Perhaps Windows 10 only supports dark mode on the left vertical 1/5 of the screen? Indeed, this is a Windows OS design limitation. We're not getting honest answers from Evernote. The honest answers are: 1. This isn't a priority for the development engineers, who have other 'cool' features to pursue regardless of what users are asking for. (I have seen it 1000 times in SW development.) 2. We don't care because we don't need to. 3. See #1.
