    Good point. Like a lot of politicians, past Evernote CEOs have failed to deliver on their promises. A great question. Until we see some results, we won't know for sure. But I can say this: The current CEO, Ian Small, seems much more sincere, more well grounded, and has taken a different, if not unique, approach to really fixing Evernote. I really like his demeanor and these Behind The Scenes videos. All that does give me hope, and some confidence, that things will really change this time.

    I thought that went the other way, i.e., '<>'. At least you find that in Pascal, Basic, and probably others. '><' is kinda like driving on the wrong side of the road... 😆

    I never thought of that...and now trying to think how i might use it. I think the easiest way would be to open the note in EN Web interface, make sure the note is full screen, then use a Chrome extension like Fireshot, my favorite, to capture entire page

    Sorry, that was pretty snarky. I do recognize that dark mode is in fact a deal-breaker, essentially a health-and-well-being issue for some people.

    Evernote web changed for me too. (firefox) But i reallllllyyy like it. Killer future for me: (i have been waiting for this so long) I can now add an attachment to a place in the note where my cursor is. Before all attachments were added on the end of the note. I do not use tags or bullet lists, so no problem for me => For some people there will be regressions (changes). But for me this time a big thumbs up.

    Thanks guys, I made it. Turns out I was being dumb: I had relocated the local files, including the database, to a secondary partition, which is mounted on a HDD. My OS runs inside a SSD, but because of short storage, I moved the Evernote DB to the HDD. Stupid move, given that the DB is still small compared to the free space. :)

    Agreed, the sketch feature/format is quite limited. My solution is to use a dedicated note-taking app (Notability); pages plus many other features. When finished, I save the document in Evernote as an attachment

    Ha-ha. I haven't seen that comic before, but yeah, welcome to my world. Evernote is actually helpful for remembering techy details like alt code, MIME types for Evernote searches, etc., but then you need to remember how you categorized them and it all goes to recursive hell...

    I've been using Evernote for over a month now and love it. Though I found some things wich I would love as features in Evernote! Notebook Stick notes on top of a Notebook for a better visibility Sort notes individualy: freely drag and drop notes in a notebook Insert a register inside a notebook: like in real life I'd love to insert a register in a notebook to better organize my files Features A more versitile Reminder: using recurring reminders; remind when I'm at a specific place; and so on Tag system in Web / Mobile analog to Windows / Mac App: It is kind of irritating, that I can only manage tags on my Pc. I love the hierarchy of tags in the Windows / Mac app and would love to see it on my phone and in the web! Windows / Mac App Editor analog to Web Editor: I love the new functionalities of the beta function in the new Web version and would love to have in on my Windows PC App Less differences in general: It is kind of confusing if you switch from Web version to the PC App. There are better function in web, but in the PC App version there are advantages to. I'd love to see a more balanced system! Thanks for reading. What do you think of those ideas?

    The paid service you are using has a specific limit on note size. Perhaps picking a paid service that satisfies your needs would be appropriate. Or add your vote to the 22 above and compromise in the meantime and build your own solution.

    Hi. Deleted notes will always be found in the Trash Notebook, even if it was the notebook that contains them that was removed, rather than notes individually. If you have nothing in Trash, chances are that you accidentally created a new account and your notes are available in the old one. I'd suggest you go to Evernote.com and sign in online to see whether your old notes appear. If they do not, make sure you're using the correct email address and try the 'lost password' option at log in. If none of this helps, you'll need to contact Support to request their help to check for other accounts in your name.

    @markjl It's on our list and being actively looked at right now. I can't give a date for implementation, but we're definitely not forgetting it.

    When I started with computers, all we had was dark mode: First came green on black, then (a revolution, one needed a special permit to get one of these) amber on black. The first screen with nice black on white was my first Macintosh SE, back then. But whoever wants dark mode - maybe some of the old CRTs are still selling on Ebay ... you just need to find a converter for the monitors plug. HDMI or DisplayPort will not do !

    Use the Today note as a permanent note. The link never changes. Each morning, backup (duplicate) the Today note to a date labeled note, then refresh for a new day. Also make it a shortcut - accessed by Ctrl+1-9

    @Ian Small, thanks for another great video. Structuring the Beta version to run separately, side-by-side, is huge for me. This will enable me to actively participate in the Beta Program.

    The ability to read-only lock or protect a note would have been useful to me today. I hope you will add this feature.

    If you OCR your PDFs yourself they will be searchable in EN independent of subscription level. Office documents for sure and I think images require a Premium subscription.

    Hi @achaigne. We store history for all users, so if you upgrade, the history of an existing note will become available to you. You would need to upgrade to a Premium plan, though, and not Evernote Business. Evernote Business is a separate product with a distinctly "business-only" user. Upgrading to the Evernote Business would result in the creation of a new user that is separate from your current personal user.

    👍 Hence my offering of an option. EDIT: Re this option: 16 shortcuts are visible in my shortcut bar, 5 in overflow. The shortcuts appear in the same order on my iPhone.

    Funny that. At a previous job, I had been there a couple of years, and was reading the comments on someone else's checkin, and they noted it was their birthday, which was the same as mine! Turned out it was also the same year as well, though we never figured out who was actually older. I know that the probability of two people in a room of 25 or so is about 50% (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birthday_problem), but with the same birth year as well, in a company of ~200? Seems like that's a lot less probably. We also had a colleague with a Feb 29th birthday. too.

    My understanding is that Evernote for Mac automatically indexes your notes in Apple Spotlight, unless you specifically disallow its Library. So, you simply need to title your note uniquely (e.g., make your note title something like ### Note Title) and then search Spotlight by the keyboard shortcut (⌘ space on my system) and then typing the first few characters of the unique note title.

    Some people keep their shortcuts in the left panel rather than the toolbar, and you can keep the shortcuts item closed in the left panel..It's nice to have options.

    While it's a play on my real name, I picked it very much because of that. I'm a programmer - I kill bugs dead! That he was! Great guy too... (and we actually have the same birthday! We had to do some serious time-zone math to figure out who was actually older - me by a couple hours)

    I also multi-monitor, and notice weird behaviour if the laptop is disconnected from the other two screens. No 4K involved here. No clue as to fixes though, sorry... 😕

    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!

    Capture from PhraseExpress below. Since the search strings are in a table a triple click highlights the cell. Pretty straightforward, Triple click - Ctrl+C - F6 - Ctrl+V - Enter. So hover over the search term in the table, hold Alt and press the right mouse button and the phrase activates.

    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 had a very similar issue after upgrading to Mojave and EN Mac 7.10. After trying a number of things I had to do this: Remove EN Mac 7.11 and ALL supporting files using AppDelete NOTE: If you have any Local Notebooks you want to keep, you MUST first export all of them to ENEX files. Download latest version from Evernote.com, and install After about 4 hours, I had to goto menu Help, holding down OPTION key, and then to Troubleshooting > Recreate Spotlight Search Index . Wait a day or two, and then everything was working fine. If you prefer, you can first try just recreating both Search Indexes shown above. I tried that, seemed to work at first, but then I was still missing some Notes. All of your notes are most likely still there (in the EN Cloud), and maybe even on your Mac, but the faulty index is preventing the EN Mac app from showing them. If you have a Premium account, I highly recommend that you file a support case (see link in my signature below).

    My philosophy is pretty simple: get Evernote back on the path of developing and shipping quality software, use that as a foundation for accelerating customer-focussed innovation, and thereby put the company onto a sustainable growth trajectory - a trifecta that is ultimately the best combination of things that we can do for our users. All of our community knows that each of those is an undertaking - which makes it easy for me to be transparent with you all about the effort involved, and to involve you all in the process we're going through this year via the Behind the Scenes videos. As I said in January's blog post, we're going to make the product we all know and depend on more worthy of our ongoing affection, although I recognize that in navigating this process we're almost unavoidably going to disappoint some folks based on the places we focus and the choices we make. Our commitment to early beta testing, along with early disclosure of our direction through the videos, is helping us course correct and identify unanticipated challenges as early as possible in the process. Finally, the company continues to be on sound financial footing, getting even sounder this year. We're a private company, so it's relatively easy to throw a bunch of fud around concerning our financials, but two key facts speak for themselves: First, since the statement quoted above that Chris made in 2016, we haven't raised any venture funding. And second, we're still here. A rational interpretation of those easily confirmable facts, coupled with the observation in the New York Times article that I expect us to be profitable on an annual basis for the first time this year, would be that over that time we've been successful in managing our burn rate against cash reserves, and that we're now growing up into profitability. While I know that it's sometimes more entertaining to spin more elaborate theories, it really doesn't need to be - and more importantly, it isn't - any more complicated than that. I continue to appreciate the patience of every one of our users while we work to create a better Evernote, the Evernote that they deserve in return for their commitment. Back to lurking now.

    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

    Hi all, We were recently advised by LinkedIn that they are making changes to their infrastructure. Unfortunately, this means that after mid-July, 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 mid-July (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!

    Interesting to see styles mentioned, and the auto-outline potential Also improved list editing like drag and drop. It's not a hot item for me but I know this has been an outstanding user request. Currently my notes are short and concise, with word processing file attachments. With enhansed editing I see the potential for moving content into note format. Thanks Ian and Sasha. I'm enjoying the videos.

    The automatic conversion of ":)" to and other text-into-emojis is annoying, but that you CANNOT TURN IT OFF is INEXPLICABLE. I do a lot of writing in Evernote and then pasting to another medium, and 99% of the time EverNote's emojis aren't supported by the other medium, to add insult to the injury that I didn't want an emoji in the first place. Ctrl-Z "undoes" the conversion to emoji, but as soon as you type anything else it just converts right back, so you have to jump through ridiculous hoops just to get EverNote to SHOW THE THING YOU TYPED. I shouldn't have to write my sentence, go back to where I wanted ":)" and then cut-and-paste it in from Notepad, or put a space in the middle and then delete the space and oh heaven forbid you realize you want to put a space after it because BAM IT'S AN EMOJI AGAIN. In conclusion: please either add an option to let the user disable the emojis or just turn it off entirely.

    You can roll your own if it is that important to you. I have a note which contains a table of searches I don't use that often, two columns, description and actual search terms. It is in my shortcuts bar. Using PhraseExpress I created a hotkey (hover over the search terms and Alt+RightMouseClick) which invokes a search for whatever the search text is. FWIW.

    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.

    Allow for unlimited devices and put back the emailing function. Basic as it was a year ago, in other words. Suggested price: $10-$15/year, $1-1.50/month. If such a tier were added, I might reconsider leaving.

    Seems like people who made Evernote, don't use it. Highlighting with different colour is the most basic of things while making notes. It looks stupid on the part of the coder, that he/she gave complete colour palette to colour the text but not to highlight it. Makes absolutely no sense. And even after so many upgrades over the years, they have not included this option in their software. This is height of idiocy. Sometimes its good to look at the competition. Have a look at microsoft Onenote. Its got tons of editing options. The only reason why people use evernote is that they haven't ever used Onenote. I've used both the softwares and like Onenote more than Evernote. Coders at Evernote... Wake up.. Bring more editing options like Onenote has....

    I normally have a multi-monitor display setup, where my 4K Win10 laptop, projects to an additional 2 other 1920 x 1080 screens. But right now I'm using the laptop just on its own, whilst working from my lounge. However I've noticed, that the 'View Left Panel' options, normally toggled on/off via pressing F10 shortcut key (fn+F10 keys on my laptop), or navigating to Menu>View> and clicking 'Left Panel' works fine in the beginning of each session, but then after some time becomes unresponsive and just stops working!? It happened both yesterday and today, with the only fix that appears to restore it, is to connect my laptop back up to my normal multi-monitor setup. Strangely, all other keyboard shortcuts, like F9 to Sync, or F11 to View Notes List, or using the mouse to select these via the app menu works fine... it's just F10 View Left Panel that stops working! Maybe this is a buggy Windows 10 thing. I have no idea what is happening, anyone else experience this or know how to fix? cheers I'm using EN-for-Windows 6.18.4.8489 (308489) Public (CE Build ce-62.3.7750)

    Hi. The only 'response' I'd expect would be for the apps for Android and iOS to be updated with that facility added. Evernote (like most software companies) don't usually comment on when or whether they'll be issuing new features.
