    It is used in shared notes. When sharing you can select edit or just read capability. The read only ones are locked. I agree it would be nice if this function was exposed for all notes.

    Hi... Tried EN many moons ago, then went with OneNote but EN's cloud and accessible anywhere features are bringing me back...Enough kudos... Is there a way to mark a note as "read-only" so I cannot accidentally erase or modify it? Thanks. Alex

    Thanks gazumped, the option 2 will be feasible as upload allowance will be ok.

    Thanks for that. Yep, was actually away adding that forgotten bit to the support request.

    Yes - boom bang boom The move with the carrot trick did it. But only after the second try. So open, move, move back, in EN go down, place cursor, move, move back - everything still working - move, move back - and now it crashed when touching the EN app to move the cursor further. Looks to me as if there is a stack to hold intermediary information from the move, and on the second move there is a memory overflow that creates an undefined situation. If your support tickets are already open, maybe you should add this detail of the carrot/cursor placement to make the follow up easier.

    One thing I left out that maybe you or someone else can try if you have a minute. Swipe from EN (with keyboard up in editor) to Safari then back to EN. Once back in Evernote with the keyboard up move the carrot/cursor further down in the note. Then repeat the process of swiping from EN to Safari and back. This crashes Evernote for me every single time.

    I've seen this comment before; the users never seem to have a problem with remembering the notebooks for a note. My new notes are collected in my inbox notebook, then processed on my Mac where I assign notebook, tags, etc I use a script to guide my tag assignment. The first tag is always the note type; for example Type-Receipt The type directs the other tag assognments.; receipts get a ventor tag and a budget tag >>But I´m having problems with tags sync (iOS-Mac). This is being discussed here There are differences in the two platforms; no hierarchy display in IOS I've compensated by using the previously discussed name prefix For example: in your use case (Technology, Mathematics), I wou;d use Subject-Technology, Subject-Mathematics

    Just guessing - someone learned your userid/password and tried it out on the Evernote site In addition to changing to a strong password, only use it on the Evernote site. Don't use the same password on other sites.

    Just to make it a little easier than the academic explanation, I tell it as a story: I am sitting at my desk in Germany. Now I am going to attack your account (if I had your credentials, which I don't have, and if I had any intention to do so, which I don't have), but want to cloak my location. What would I do ? Activate my VPN, switch the country to say Singapore, which builds a VPN tunnel from my PC to Singapore, and enter your account data. What would you see ? An access from Singapore. Not good enough, because several data from my PC would be transmitted as well, that could be used for fingerprinting my device. OK, so I use some software that will virtually convert my PC into an Android, Samsung S5, together with all false device and SW fingerprints. Now you have got what you would see later: An access from Singapore with an Android device to your account. In reality I am sitting on my desk in Germany, and use a PC to go and steal your data. This is how it happens (or better: If Disaster Kid is doing it, Pros would rather use automated software to do this, and not use a VPN service but a network of "dark" proxy servers used for the same purpose, but harder to track). Wellcome to the world behind the mirrors, where nothing is at it seems. One last thing: Nothing has to do with EN not protecting your data, but with yourself logging in yesterday in the Internet cafe on an open WiFi / your maybe infected hardware / whatever weak PW you may use etc. Just one example: If somebody infected your PC with some malware, even using a PW-Manager will not help, because for example they can log every key you press, including your user name and PW, make a screen copy every few seconds and send it to a remote server etc. If I were to build my EN access into a fortress, I would use a device know for low risk of attack like any iOS device, enter my account, change the PW into a strong one created on my PW manager on this device, get 2FA up and running, and be done. Which is what I have done, someday in the past ...and what you can do as well (maybe minus the iOS device).

    This feature of recurring reminder is so important taking into account the EverBetter program and new templates, like habit tracking all of these without recurring reminders make no sense that could be a premium feature if was the case of high developing investment

    This is easier on a Windows/Macs; a straight notebook>tag conversion For example Notebook A becomes tag NB-A Select all the notes in notebook A; mass assign tag:NB-A

    Notebooks are used to identify notes as sync'd/local, private/shared, offline I use Tags for organization. Other points about Tags: A note can have multiple tag assignments Tags can be organized in an unlimited level hierarchy Maximum # of tags is 100,000

    @Atul MishraSearch is pretty solid, OCR is sometimes off, and depending a lot on the original copy if created by scanning (fonts, print quality, alignment etc.). Hint: If a pdf was OCRed before, EN will not OCR it again. Then the original OCR is decisive for search quality. To test the quality of your own OCR (from an app, software like Nuance delivered with many scanners etc.), create some documents of different print quality with your own OCR and without, upload them, wait a little until EN servers did their OCR, and compare the results by performing some searches. This can not be done directly, because the original OCR will be embedded in the pdf file, whereas EN will not modify the uploaded file. The safest way to recover what you need is adding your own information to a note, be it by a „speaking“ title, tags or text written to the note itself. On a Mac, the Spotlight search currently will only find note text from the titles (no tags, no text within notes). I prefer tagging.

    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

    Thanks for the additional details. I wonder if Evernote would consider doing more technical deep dives down the road for those users who are interested? There used to be a technical Evernote blog but it seems to have been phased out about 18 months ago. Good to see you participating in these comments and hope to see additional Evernote staff including senior leadership participate.

    Nice presentation. And good to give some of the applause to the guys who oil the wheels behind the scene.

    I'm enjoying this web series but I would have enjoyed this one more with significantly more technical details. I also would have appreciated some forward looking information. For example, what challenges are the infrastructure team looking to tackle next? Are there additional user facing features which will be made possible in the future due to this change (or other planned infrastructure changes)? Such as syncing improvements? Etc.

    If I could add my voice to this also... this is a feature that has been available for years (in a basic but effective manner) in the separate (unrelated) app called MergeEver, which has been a lifesaver as I’ve moved more and more on to the iPad. I’m now using the larger screen (12.9-inch) iPad Pro and with the upcoming release of iOS13 and the extra multitasking features mooted for it, I will be doing most of my work on the iPad). I’ve been a heavy user of Evernote for many years, but always found it lacking in iOS. I have had to keep going back to the desktop computer to do my merging of related content. And I do a lot of this. It would be wonderful to finally achieve feature parity with the desktop version (I’m on Mac) but even if this cannot be done, the ability to merge notes really is a crucial feature. If MergeEver could do this on iOS years ago, why is it taking so long for Evernote itself to incorporate the feature? The ability to merge multiple notes is one of the main reasons I moved to Evernote in the first place (on the desktop). Please push this feature up your priority list.

    I've been using Dark Mode on my MBP since installing Mojave. It has worked well until Evernote introduced it because in Dark Mode it is nearly impossible to see highlighted text. I'd like to keep Dark Mode on in System Preferences, but not use it in Evernote.

    Where is the option to TURN OFF DARK MODE FOR EVERNOTE. I ALSO DO NOT LIKE DARK MODE FOR EVERNOTE, but wish to use darkmode for my mac.

    Hi All, You may have noticed that all threads requesting the ability to lock notes and make them read only have been merged into this thread, regardless of platform specificity. This was done in order to better enable us to quantify and qualify user requests, and amplify their voice. While this does not mean this is a feature that will be coming, we certainly want to relay user feedback/sentiment to our various teams. Moving forward, please put all commentary and votes for the ability to lock notes and make them read only support here!

    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 should be available by mid-July. 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!
