    A big thanks to all of you who watched this video and have taken the time to give us your feedback – I've personally read every comment (and so has Ian). One big improvement we've made since the video, is deciding to actually show tags on the top of the note itself. We plan to show 1-2 tags to the right of the breadcrumb, so you don't have to tap on the tag icon to see them. If you don't have any tags on the note, it shouldn't take up any extra space. Hi @jefito I should clarify about nested tags on Android – currently Personal accounts can view nested tags, but Business users cannot, explaining why users are reporting different experiences. For Personal account users who have nested tags today, we hope seeing the nested tree structure you have on desktop will give you better context when viewing/managing your tags. Good news @lisec! We plan to allow filtering by tags (and notebooks) in our mobile search! In fact, when you select a tag and view a notelist associated with that tag, you can search within that list or apply more filters. @Kruger2147 You'll also be able apply multiple tags – simply start typing a tag and in the search field and we'll auto-suggest tags for you to add as filters. Don't worry, @gustavgi the "Unassign tags from all notes" feature will definitely have a confirmation dialog! This is actually a desktop feature we're bringing to mobile. Your question about tags with long names that are many levels deep is a good one. At some point, if you are 5 levels deep and have a long tag name, it will be cut off with an ellipses. That said, the designs do work well to accommodate any nested tags which are 3-5 levels deep, which is to our knowledge the majority of our use cases. So we can be better informed – I'd like to ask people on average how many levels of nested tags do you have? And how long are the titles? 💚Thanks again for being such loyal and active Evernote users. p.s. @gazumped Ian still owes me that drink...

    @Ian Small, thank's for another great video. In general, I love the direction you are headed in with respect to tags. However, I do have one UI request: Please don't waste so much vertical space on the listing of tags. This would apply to all devices, but especially to mobile devices. It is far, far more important to those of us who have lots of tags (> 1,000) to see as many tags on the screen at one time as possible, and still be readable and touchable. Also, please greatly improve the contrast of the text. The light shade of grey used for the Tag Names make it very hard to read.

    Shortest response to all speculation above: we have been investing for the last several months in replacing the plumbing in client apps, including in the modern web experience. When we are done (we aren't, yet) this will mean a common codebase shared across all the clients for cloud-client functionality such as sync, which should help us both isolate and stamp out bugs as well as driving more consistent behaviour across any user's Evernote experience that spans multiple devices. None of the previews put out to date incorporate any of this work, which is foundational to implementing the local data store for desktop and mobile clients that we all know and love. We plan to shoot a Behind the Scenes video that talks about the new plumbing, but the architect we need for that is ... ahem ... busy right now, or else you would have seen it before this one! Side by side installations on desktop machines of the beta and of a current production release will have distinct local data stores; you will be able to use both at the same time (I do that, right now).

    It's hard to put into words so I've attached two screenshots with how a given clipped article would appear in full screen in both Evernote and Pocket for example. For me personally the second environment is much more distraction free and focused for both reading and editing. It's the small details like these that could improve the Evernote writing/editing experience for me. If you need further clarification, I would be happy to help.

    Thx @gazumped - tried those as well. The saved search nor the tagging didn't work quite for me. However, I actually figured following solution for me: Created "Current Items" notebook In there created separate notes eg. "Working items", "Hobby items" etc. Each note (= category) then consists of titles which are actually Evernote internal links. Ta-daa! I can even then have separate titles for those (compared to as the saved note-title in Evernote). Suits perfect for now!

    Hi Evernote, Please fix the formatting on the bullet points. They've been broken since I started using Evernote and it is the single most significant reason I don't use Evernote more often. I actually would stop using it, but I need something with the searchability and offline mode for my comprehensive exams. My most recent problem: - I was trying the new editor and changed the font of one of my notes. - A new line was added in between every single one of my bullet points that I then had to delete manually - I then decided I didn't like the new editor because support for combining Unicode characters I need was limited and the UI was not easy to transition to immediately. - I went back to the old editor and found my note using a font I didn't like and that looks nothing like the font I chose in the new editor. I selected all and switched to a different font. - Every. Single. Bullet. Indentation. Disappeared. I just lost about an hour's worth of work just to reformat a note that I shouldn't need to revisit when I don't have the time to be dealing with this nonsense. This is not acceptable. Other problems I've had: - Bullet points are constantly disappearing when I try to reformat the indentation in the middle of what has previously been written. - Copy-pasting to other platforms isn't reliable because Evernote's formatting code is so unreliable that the other platforms produce complete nonsense with respect to the indentation. Unrelated problems I've had: - Why do I have to submit a bug report on a forum that is—I don't care what is "officially" promised—only moderately monitored at best? It's completely inconsiderate of the user base you have that you can only directly email support if you're paying for the site. I want to like Evernote, I really do, but I'm starting to have the same problem with it that I had with Memrise: it looks shiny and should be really great, but the programmers are more interested in building new shiny things they like than in creating a reliable product that meets the needs of the users. I'll probably stop using Evernote soon, unless I see any indication that it becomes an even remotely functional word processor. There are too many other platforms that do what I need from Evernote.

    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 did the firmware upgrade today and got things working. I ended up doing things differently on the two computers. On my Mac I have things set up to put the scans into Evernote wirelessly via the cloud. My wife is a minimal Evernote user, so I configured her connection to be wired with the USB cable and not using Evernote. She gets the standard set of ScanSnap Home choices to save to a file, email, etc. We still have to plug and unplug the USB cable as one or the other of us scans, but at least now the cable just stays by her computer.

    I'm using windows and chrome but when I am writing my notes on evernote web, I cant use Ctrl z, ctrl b and Ctrl i. I'm sure there are other shortcuts that dont work, but those are the ones I regularly use. However, when I use ctrl backspace, it works. Anyone know why these shortcuts aren't working?

    Hmmn. My saga continues... Not something which started with this version, but as an ongoing issue, the Left panel is very sensitive to the screen position of the cursor. So much so that being just past the boundary of the scroll bar still selects the item which is at that level. I went to scroll a window today, but wound up playing 'hunt the notebook' because I accidentally caught the left panel and not the scroll, and swiped the notebook up a couple of levels and into another notebook, where they made a new stack. There was no "are you sure to move this notebook?", just swish and it was gone. Easily fixed (but annoying) if you notice, but bad juju if you don't. Or swipe into a local / non-local stack.

    What platform are you talking about ? Windows ? Mac ? The ScanSnap clients are differing by platform, but both offer OCR, for example.

    Hi. When you sync a note with changes, then yes, the note counts as a new upload. A merged note is also a new note containing the previous individual notes. However in several years of activity I've never even approached a 10GB limit. By my admittedly rough calculation I'd have to save 400 HD pictures to make a serious dent. What usage are you seeing? Is it causing you some kind of issue?

    I love Evernote, but it's preventing me from putting in sensitive content. For example, I can't keep a personal journal notebook, because other people (i.e. girlfriend, family members, etc.) could one day be looking at those notes, especially since they know that I use Evernote often for many purposes. Evernote already has the ability to encrypt single notes. This is useful for things like storing passwords or other temporary sensitive content. But it's not practical to encrypt many notes one by one. I wish I could password-protect a whole notebook. This way, I can do a lot more with Evernote. If I can encrypt single notes, then why can't Evernote just allow me to encrypt entire notebooks? If reason behind this is because Evernote thinks one could lose a lot of data if a notebook password is forgotten, then perhaps Evernote can help recover the passwords through email. In the meantime, I'm stuck with using other apps (i.e. Pages, Day One, etc) to password-protect my content. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi again. I posted this on Reddit's EN sub as well, and a kind soul sent me the link to the next version of EN for Windows, available from EN instead of from the Windows store. And it works like a charm, so the new version ( has solved my problem. Phew! I wonder why Microsoft doesn't have this latest version in the Windows store. Odd.

    My problem: I would find it very useful to be able to convert a note into a word-document or similar text files which to my knowledge you cannot at the moment. The proposed solution: Add a feature under the "Share" menu on a note named "Convert to file" or something like that which creates a file with your note.

    I guess I mean a) it's slightly less slick than having a print option; b) you need to know the email address of your printer, not a trivial thing for some people/printers; and c) with the setting I describe, you get the text of the note and nothing else, no title, no folder info, etc., just text. But with those caveats, it's work just fine!

    Another vote for this feature. Should be able to turn sync on and off on a per-notebook basis so that devices with limited capabilities or roles do not need to have an account's entire note database stored locally. Example: Want to have one notebook on a client-furnished computer, must not update notebooks related to other clients. Forcing sync of everything would violate all sorts of contractual agreements. Example: Don't have enough storage on a small tablet/laptop/phone. Self-explanatory. It's great to be able to compose and edit a few notes on a phone, but it's preposterous to pay a many-gigabyte price for doing so. Example: Don't want to place personal notebooks on a business computer. Requiring this forces people to break company policies, potentially break laws/regulations, etc. Example: Don't want to have "archived" (i.e., obsolete and no longer used, but kept for record-keeping purposes) notebooks show up on every new device. Big reason we have the cloud, y'know, is so we don't have to to keep copies of everything everywhere. The suggestion of using separate accounts leads to a proliferation of accounts and authentication data, which is never a good thing. It is also an abuse of Evernote's free accounts, and an unacceptable cost if non-free accounts are required. And, of course, there is the ever-present risk that Eevrnote will change the terms of those free accounts.

    Hi. Sorry, but I tried a few variations - couldn't get to that grey background and layout in any of them. Interested to see if anyone else has some better ideas!

    No issue, and I am using less advanced I-devices. The only issue is that it may take some time until everything is safely uploaded and stored on the server. But I do rarely put large (what is large ? 10MB ? 25 MB ? 50 MB ? ) pictures into notes, so maybe I miss a part of what is needed to jump off the syncing cliff. In the few occasions I did, it worked out fine, after allowing time for the sync. How long depends on the internet connection.

    The store app actually cleans up after itself pretty well. Revo shouldn't be necessary for that. (Store apps use their own copy of the registry, so the global one isn't "contaminated".) The only thing that won't be cleaned up is the database directory (on purpose - that's why it was moved out of localapps a few years ago). Personally, I use the direct download version too.

    Just 5 days between the beta 1 Windows version and the full blown public release? * July 23 - Today we released Windows 6.20 beta 1. * July 28 - Let's update your app. A new version is available 6.20.2 Public (3008626) I am used to seeing Evernote generate some conversation and feedback as the beta versions are tested on and then updated with corrections. I realize some will think this is a can't win request. Too slow = complaints and now Too fast also generates concern. I prefer to have the heavy-weight users put a few weeks of time and effort into refining the betas so that the public version is rock solid.

    When I first started out using this feature I had the same idea. I've been using it for quite a while and really like that it's not editable (probably one of the few that thinks that way lol). For me it's a security thing. The mail to email is less likely to get into the hands of anyone that shouldn't have it if it's randomly generated.

    Hi. Sorry to hear that things didn't work out. We're a -mainly- user supported forum, so can't comment on what went wrong with the downgrade, but you did the right thing by opening a ticket. If you're not using/ haven't used the account I wouldn't think there should be a problem.

    I would like to be able to confirm the creation of a new tag from just typing into the tags area in a note (similar dialog to the confirmation for tag deletion). I am frequently having to go and delete a newly created tag where I've just typo'd an existing tag and hit enter as I add multiple tags to a note at speed. I have a fairly structured tagging system so adding new tags is a very infrequent occurrence compared to using them. I appreciate this may not be for everyone, so a setting to enable/disable the confirmation would be ideal.

    True that they didn't promise anything. However by unifying the editor into one single code base, they will free up more resources and be able to fine tune the editor according to user feedback. Before the editor was unified, when they needed to do a simple modification to the editor, the communication between 5 development teams and product managers must be exhausting, and keeping the user experience consistent across all 5 platforms was almost a impossible engineering goal (and why we have this thread here). At least now Evernote team is doing the first step right, so let's hope for the best.

    I realize this is a bit redundant, as I can create an import folder for my files or install the traditional program, but whenever the Windows 10 App updates, the shortcuts I create for it manually break because the version number is embedded in the folder's name (C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Evernote.Evernote_[Version Number, etc]\VFS\Evernote.exe). I use said shortcut to add an option in the SendTo context menu so that I can send lots of files to Evernote (as independent notes) from explorer. It fits into my workflow very conveniently, but I grow tired of the frequency at which I have to keep setting it up. Out of curiosity and versatility if I run into scenarios like this where there isn't an easy fix, has anyone found a creative solution to this issue?

    This is one of my top requests. I think you can determine which image is shown according to the vertical size of the image (& maybe the horizontal size plays in too but the vertical size seems most important). But I hate attaching a huge vertical image just to keep my cover image as the one I want. I wish I could simply designate the image I want used for the cover image. That would be really great. Thanks, Evernote. You're awesome.

    I’m using Web Clipper 6.11 on Chrome 57.0.2987.133 and MacOS 10.12.3. My Web Clipper (WC) keeps logging out again and again as other users experienced so far. Un-installing and re-installing the WC nor computer shutdown and restart didn’t help. I’m looking back to the good old times when WC was stable.

    This is kinda a pain, and it's somewhat explained in the search grammar reference (https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php), but it would certainly be handy to have better Evernote search facilities, including this one. Upvoted.

    There are work-arounds, for example, you can first hit space or enter, and then go back using the arrow keys to type the emoticon, and then go back forth with the arrow keys to continue typing. It's a pain, however. This is a relatively new function, and it's one I can't imagine most people would appreciate, so I am of the opinion that there needs to be a way to turn it off.

    I love the "create table of contents note" option - I think it is the best way to understand the content of a notebook and navigate that notebook efficiently. I would like to be able to pin a note to the top of the notebook, no matter how the notebook is organized. I would mostly use this to pin "table of contents" notes, but I would use it on other occasions as well. And yes, reminders would technically do it but I think that is a little ugly. For me, that would mean having 36 perpetual reminders, one for each notebook. Way too much clutter for me. I think the "shortcuts" feature could address this as well, but again, there would be 36 shortcuts that I would have to visually sort through. It would be much easier to see just the note I want as I navigate to the appropriate notebook. This seems to be a hot topic, here are other posts requesting this feature, starting with this post: http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/50972-feature-request-pin-notes-to-the-top-of-the-notebook-browser/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/41293-feature-request-pin-notes/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/49215-feature-request-pin-note-to-top/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/34064-request-pin-notes-and-notebooks-to-start/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/23092-request-pin-one-note-on-the-top-always/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/42968-pin-note-to-top/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/33642-sticky-notes-the-ability-to-pin-notes-to-the-top-of-a-list/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/40833-is-it-possible-to-pin-a-note-to-the-top/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/18324-feature-request-pin-notes-favorites/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/30585-feature-request-for-android-client-pin-note-to-notification-bar/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/24278-feature-request-pinned-notes/ http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/24796-map-view-of-notes/

    Tags isn't the same as nested notebooks. Nesting allows for creation of a virtual shelf of notes for a topic, college courses, outlinging stories or research etc.. It would be a very useful feature to have. And other products offer to, requesting it in our favorite tool (Evernote) isn't that odd. I would love to have the feature too.
