    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.

    It may be that some folks are looking so desperately for an Evernote replacement that they're rushing to judgement on something which looks shiny and new. The most important thing (IM - not exactly - HO) is that whatever solution you choose, whether it's Keep or Notion or Bear or Evernote, it has to work for you. That's the only test. If you're happy with a method of working, it's not my place to tell you that you could, or should, change it. I keep on getting asked questions elsewhere about "what's the best...way / app / method / etc" and my stock answer is: I don't know. I know what works for me - Evernote in my specific case, (plus - in no specific order - Airtable, Filterize, Freeplane, MSOffice, RightNote and Google). But for everyone else - why don't you try what's available and see which you get on with best? In my experience of changing between to-do apps on a regular basis, I can more or less guarantee that all the players in the 'note taking' field (that is such a limited description!) will be catching up with each other in various ways - feature A will shine at one app, and then the others will catch up and one of the competition will now have feature B! Evernote's competition do have an unfair advantage - they're able to poach the development that Evernote pioneered and jump in with an almost perfect first product; and they can develop from there. Evernote has 250M(??) users and a heck of a bandwidth issue as all their connected devices check back with Home Base on a regular basis. They have a huge operation that runs - relatively - smoothly. Changes (as windows Desktop users found out recently) can cause disruption. And Evernote users (you may have noticed) are not shy of sharing their opinions and derision when things go wrong. Evernote is rightfully cautious of upsetting any apple carts in their development work - and they're normally fairly good at succeeding. So. I'm staying in touch with developments - I subscribed to both Filterize and Rightnote this year thanks to the Forums - I watch the webinars on Notion and other solutions, and fantasise about the interactive database / spreadsheet / calendar / personal assistant that I could probably build... if I spent some time getting thoroughly familiar with the environment, and then converted 45K notes... or I could just get on with my work. My view thus far - if it works, really - don't fix it!

    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".

    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>

    Took a look as well. Notion seems stronger in building workflows and cockpits / dashboards. Looks nicer, GUI is more flexible. But I have not found the massive, reliable data silo with good-to-perfect retrieval I need for my usecase. So for me it is EN for the next future. This is plainly personal, others may evaluate features differently, and everybody has an own usecase to support.

    +1 on this. What happened?! Presentation mode used to be sexy - people were impressed by it. Now I'm embarrassed to use it - I'm going to put this into Keynote now. Please fix! I used this feature all. the. time.

    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,

    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!

    I've used Evernote since the beginning. I started paying premium street a couple years. I've had a Synology NAS since 2012. The new Note Station is pretty amazing! AND there's a *DIRECT IMPORT* from Evernote to Synology. Oh, and Note Station it's "free", "unlimited"storage, and you can have as many users as you want for no cost. Is it perfect? No. Is it for everyone? No. But it's darn good replacement that fits my workflow. If you have a Synology, you NEED to at least try it! Sorry Evernote, but I doubt I'll be back.

    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...

    I agree there are more important things - and it is a shame to criticise staff who are making the effort to be more approachable - maybe the happy medium (in 'listening to users' style) would be to have the happy narrative first, and a cold, hard list of 'what just happened' at the end? I do agree more details / more tech input would be better.

    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.

    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.

    Response (names removed): Hello there Name, Thank for bringing this to our attention. We are currently aware of this issue, and although I don't have an estimated date of when it will be resolved, I can assure you we're working diligently to fix it as soon as possible. If you would like to roll back to a previous version of Evernote that did not contain this issue, please follow the below steps: Before uninstalling Evernote for Android, make sure to copy the contents of any unsynced notes somewhere outside of the Evernote app. Any unsynced notes (notes marked by red/green corners) and photos are deleted when you reinstall the app. To save any unsynced photos to your Gallery, tap the options menu (three dots) and select Save to Downloads. Then follow these steps: Open the Play Store Search for Evernote, choose it, then tap Uninstall Restart your Android device Once Evernote has been uninstalled, please click on this link to download version 8.8.1. If you can't use the version from the previous link, then try this link. Please know that by going back a version, you will be exposed to some bugs we fixed already, the most noticeable of them being not able to login to your Evernote account in more than one Android device at the same time if you use two factor authentication. For now, I will close this ticket, but if you have any other questions please reach out to me and I'll be more than happy to help. Best, Name. Customer Support Representative

    Thanks for the reply. I also discovered that if I download the app, one can have both business and personal accounts open at the same time. That can be done by a menu item under "File."

    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 ...

    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 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!

    Moderators, Gurus where are you if needed.!!!!! The Android v 8.9 is not working now for almost a month. EN it is a BS. Your are forcing us to update to a non-working versions, what a BS. All the time I was careful not to automatically update, one time I skip it and here you go, I got infected with EN, What a BS. And as usual EN is silent, no response. Go to hell. I am a paid subscriber and I want my money back. It happened before, enough of the BS.

    Same problem - unable to search for any item. Automatically updated from Google Play on two Android devices (Oneplus and Lenovo tablet). Both are on EN version 8.9(1082873). Prior to update, searching on both devices was working fine. Reported problem to EN support and sent them log files. To make the situation worse, I am unable to access EN from an Android browser - message "Sorry, Evernote Web is not supported on Android browsers". So in essence, current EN on Android is not usable at all for anything but data entry.

    How can Evernote not fix this hours after it's discovered? This sort of problem is so fundamental, they should do a code rollback to the previous version. In the meantime they're releasing dark mode improvements?! Evernote: why?!

    Whatever you select for those two settings become the defaults, for any default text in notes in any case. Check -- I meant the "factory defaults," i.e., what the program initially sets as defaults. Sorry for the confusion.

    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.

    I can't believe this is still a problem FOUR years later. Evernote is supposed to be our filing cabinet where we can store all critical information to have available at our fingertips. Can we at least find out why it is a problem and why it can't be implemented?
