    Sir, You are a GENIUS! Solution: Scanner still has my.personal.scanner@gmail.com account. Scanner sends email to my.personal.scanner2@gmail.com email that I just created. my.personal.scanner2@gmail.com automatically forwards that email to username.xxx@m.evernote.com address. 💪 Previous: Scanner has my.personal.scanner@gmail.com account. Scanner sends email to username.xxx@m.evernote.com address. 🤬

    I've only played with it a short time, but using the web beta on my iPad - including a mouse! - works pretty well. The mouse (it works with a trackpad too) makes a big difference in editing text. Things like selecting text are much easier than using your fingers. I'm sure there will be gotchas, but at first glance it is pretty good.

    Finally figured this one out. In a PDF within a note, click on the header bar (the gray stripe at the top), then on the 3 dots, to get a choice of Download, View as Attachment, and Page-through Preview or Full Preview. For me, View as Attachment is especially welcome. Thanks again for noticing this.

    A quick web search for tool to advise when a web page changes returns this 14 BEST tools for Website Change Detection & Monitoring (2020) and 5 Best Free Tools to Monitor Website Changes (2019). I did not dive any deeper. Maybe you could roll your own for this feature. Not to be a wet blanket, but doubtful this is going to find it onto EN's priority list. FWIW.

    As a student of Business Economics, it is necessary many times to write on my notes mathematical symbols and equations; it is not available now, however, wouldn't it be a great feature?

    On Mar 31 I replied to Hoover: To locate the EN database folder, I clicked on About Evernote and the Option key. In v7.14, looks like that has been removed. It was available in v6.10. I remembered I could also go through the Help tab, hit the Option key to reveal Troubleshooting. That also has been removed! So how do I find the EN database folder to copy over to the SSD? Hoover transferred my ticket to Oleg, Technical Support Specialist. His reply: At the moment, Evernote for Mac desktop application doesn't allow relocating the local database and unfortunately there is no workaround that will not disrupt the proper operation of the application. Thanks for bringing this up. I’ve gone ahead and made note of this for our development team. While we can’t commit to getting all feature requests into the product, we do rely on our community to tell us what they’d like to see in the future. I recognize that this doesn't fix the issue that you're running into today but I want you to know that we are hard at work on prioritizing major improvements that you'll be seeing soon.

    Indirect solution that seems to work is the use of Evernote Clipper for Microsoft Outlook which apparently can process and successfully save the same emails which are being rejected with normal forward to an Evernote email function.

    Hello, and welcome to the forums. Another user reported a similar problem, and it was related to emailing notes directly from a scanner. Is that also your situation?

    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.

    Hi all, as promised, I'll share the result of my request (I asked support, they were ok with me quoting them - I shorted it a bit) " Thank you for sending [a video of the problem], it worked and I was able to identify the widget you were mentioning. I consulted my Android development team about this issue and it seems that we are aware and investigating. For the sake of all transparency, it could take some time before we get to fix this issue. To elaborate, since last year, we've been busy working on revamping major components of the app, including the syncing mechanism, our backend infrastructure, our note editor to only name a few - both on desktop and mobile devices. This work has been the highest priority company-wide and has been affecting the priority of other issues. I know it's been a long time since we haven't came out with new functionalities, and I want to thank you for your support, and sticking with Evernote. We are very excited to share very soon what we've been dedicating our efforts to for the last year. If you'd like to know more about what we're up to, I invite you to read the latest blog post of our CEO Ian Small — 2020 Update: Our Progress and the Road Ahead. We also published Behind The Scenes videos to show you what in more details some of our work in-house — I recommend watching the video about our work on the redesign of the mobile app. This will also apply to the note editor in Evernote for iPhone and Android. [...] I made sure to forward all the helpful information you've included in this ticket to the engineering team. [...] Looks like we'll just have to wait. Cheers Alex P.S: Saved searches etc. as a link on the homescreen were provided as a workaround.

    There will no harm been done if you install on 2 Macs at the same time. You can install on your new Mac first, get things up and running, and check whether the installation went through (it usually does). You can use both Macs in parallel, or you can stop using the old one once the new one is operational. Just make sure you have synced everything to the EN Server a last time before deleting the old machine. All data will download from the servers to the new Mac, and that is it. At the moment I am using EN (with an own database) on a Win10-PC, on my MacBook Pro and (Server based) on several mobile devices. This is no problem because as DTLow has pointed out, the master copy is the one on the server.

    I am working on my Doctorate and use Evernote to keep notes on various classes that will carry over into other courses. Not only that but I use Citavi for my reference material. I actually got the information for that program from these discussion boards. I think keeping track of resources and abstracts is more an issue with Doctorate work then undergrad/grad work. If you get stuck, because they suck, with group projects you can link up with everyone on Evernote and work the same material together instead of sending each person's sections into one person to put together. Sentinel made a great point. You can use Evernote for the following. Photograph or Scan your handwritten notes into Evernote, to later study on any device you wish/own. Directly type notes & reports into Evernote, web clip from the web for study material, copy/paste some code snippets to study/store for future use This is also great for tracking scholarships. What they are, what you have to do, due dates, etc. Store Audio Notes from college classes, discussions with teachers (another great suggestion from BNF) I use a personal recorder a lot. Not just for school but business and personal reasons. I upload the audio to that particular notebook to track whatever it is I recorded. Journaling, personal as well as college related activities This is really good for teacher/course feedback. Also, when you have issues with a teacher you can track it if it goes beyond just talking with that teacher. Archiving all of your works for future reference. You may want to write a Thesis one day. (if only I had EN when I was young) This is a really great idea. I wish I would have saved some material from my Master classes. I could have used them to support my dissertation now. Share/compare your material with other students and faculty (Parents too!) This is what I was referring to when I mentioned group assignments. This is also a great way to run things by your Prof to make sure you are on the right track with your assignments and get feedback prior to the due date.

    You're using Evernote's web platform The Evernote/Windows client is available at www.evernote.com/download The same software is used for all account levels >>And I also tried exporting my notes, but ofcourse... the how-to instructions don't work.. I work on windows and right-clicking a notebook does NOT i repeat DOES NOT give me the options to export... The export feature is supported on the Windows and Mac platforms; not the web platform >>Because I've always been able to create a support ticket... Support tickets can only be created by paid accounts

    tell application "Keyboard Maestro Engine" to set NotesLastRun to getvariable "NotesLastRun" tell application "Evernote" set noteList to {} set noteSearch to find notes "created:" & NotesLastRun repeat with thisNote in noteSearch set nLink to note link of thisNote set nTitle to title of thisNote copy {nLink, nTitle} to the end of noteList end repeat return noteList end tell There you go.

    Hi. Sorry but we're mainly users here - plus a few independent but mostly zero Evernote developers. I doubt we can help with anything other than guesses. Try https://dev.evernote.com/ if you haven't already...

    ...What they said. And we've had the discussion before about what will happen if Evernote just... stops... Well - everyone with a desktop app has a complete local copy of their database, and can (probably) use the file as an import source for other apps; speaking of which Evernote's small-nation size customer base will be a prime target for every surviving competitor out there (like it is now!). If there's a way to populate a new app with Evernote data, they'll offer it. our experience with software company crashes has been (thankfully) minimal, but there are usually sunsetting arrangements with a favoured beneficiary to hand user data on if the users wish and permit it. And for the reasons mentioned above I'd imagine Evernote could operate pretty handily on a wfh basis - that won't be an issue. NEO Asteroids now, that could be a problem...

    Android 7.1.1 Evernote v 8.1.0 re: insert horizontal line function Along with the issue of taking a minute or more for notes to display for viewing or editing, I have now discovered that this editing function in the Android app no longer works as it once did. It used to always insert the horizontal line at the blinking cursor. Now is always places it at the bottom of the note. Works fine in the desktop Windows app. Another negative for EN ver 8.1.0 This is a key editing function for me as I use the horizontal line extensively to break up a note into smaller sub-sections, usually with a date stamp in them. When I'm researching an issue and adding updates as I resolve the problem or a product progresses from beta mode to final form I keep all the updates in one note on the issue/product. Ditto when using EN for client management and keeping track of interactions. BTW... that is another function Evernote should have on that menu bar - a date insertion tool preferably in the form factor of yyyy-mm-dd-hhmmss. I currently use a work around app but it is clumsy. Makes it easy to search for all notes or note updates from a specific day or month where you have time stamped your note. .

    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.

    Two features to greatly improve the note writing and organization experience: Header Styles – Standard header styles, such as Title, Sub-title, Header 1, etc. Medium, Google Docs, and Slack Posts all are great examples of this. You should be able to select these header styles using a click of a button. The current workaround is painful: change font size for the header line, then change font size again to start writing in the smaller font. Note Outline – Once you create headers, these headers can then become a note outline that can easily be navigated. Look to Google Docs for a great example of this. This would greatly help my ability to navigate my more lengthy notes. Please see screenshots below. Hope you consider this! It would be awesome!

    2020... and still no hand-writing integration in Evernote... I fear that means that Evernote is struggling to stay afloat and no longer investing in the product. Anyone else feeling that way? (Evernote Premium user Fromm the early years of the platform. Penultimate purchaser before it even got acquired. Apple iPad + Apple Pen happy user for sketching etc. OneNote provided by work and despite the fact I do not love it the way I loved Evernote, at least hand-writing is built-in... I need hand-writing support in Evernote to keep justifying myself the Premium annual fee...) Come on Evernote! You're making it really hard for your hard-core fans to stick around... deliver on the Penultimate promises and give us *real* *integrated* hand-writing support!

    I find it very frustrating that I cant edit my attached office files, e.g. Excel-files, without having to make a copy and add it in the note. It would be so nice to be able to the open the attached file in Excel, make the changes and then the attached file is updated in Evernote. This works in OneNote that I use at work and I find this very useful. I know Evernote isnt a file manager but I do belive it makes sense to keep some files there and it also makes sense to be able to edit them in an efficient way.

    I have been an EN user since Beta, and became a Premium user as soon as it was offered. I do not understand why EN is lagging with simple security options, such as easy encryption of notes and notebooks. This really should be as easy as a Right-Click or selection in properties for a Note or Notebook. The existing method of selecting text in a note and then using a Right-Click option to encrypt it is cumbersome at best. Yes, it is a nice feature if one wants to encrypt only a portion of a note. That's fine. But there should be an easy way to (1) encrypt an entire note without selecting text and (2) encrypt an entire notebook. I would be willing to pay a few bucks extra a year for this additional encryption ability. Seems this should be a no-brainier for EN, both as a tech matter and as a business/profit matter.

    The original post is from Aug 2017. WHY has this feature not been implemented? It has become extremely frustrating when opening an existing note, written anywhere (web, pc app, on Android) and begin to add text just to find the font, not only isn't the same, but is so small it is illegible. Fix this!

    The new update for iOS looks really great with significant improvements in the interface. However, losing presentation mode is a big deal for me. As a someone who teaches and speaks regularly I LOVED presentation mode. I was able to design a speaking outline and then use presentation mode live to just scroll through my notes as I speak. The way it stripped out all other buttons and such made it something I used multiple times a week for the last 2 years. Is there any chance it might come back or something else like it? If there was a way to freeze the keyboard and/or other options/buttons it would get me close enough to where it was before. Let me know what you think.

    True, but it's sort of a different issue from the one in that thread. The "wants to use your confidential information" problem has apparently been fixed with 7.1.1 (or at least it hasn't come back for me). The "EvernoteSpotlight quit unexpectedly" problem has definitely not been fixed.

    It's not as elegant as alt + shift + arrow (up or down), but here is the workaround I just discovered. For any list that is numbered, bulleted, or has a checkbox at the beginning of each line--if you hover over the number number or checkbox--you will see a little hand appear. Once the hand appears, you can left click, and easily drag the item (or line) up or down the list.

    Hi everyone, I lead Evernote's security team. I wanted to make you aware of a recent update to Evernote for Windows versions 6.4–6.7. All Evernote apps connect with our service over HTTPS, which ensures that the data you send between your devices and our service is encrypted. We recently discovered a security vulnerability in older versions of Evernote for Windows that caused affected clients to use HTTP when contacting certain portions of the Evernote Service. This means that if you used one of the vulnerable versions of our Windows client, our software was occasionally sending your authentication token across the Internet using HTTP without first encrypting it. To be clear, your note content, usernames, and passwords were, and continue to be, securely encrypted in transit. Your password is still safe, and you don’t need to change it. To protect customers, we have blocked access from older versions of Evernote for Windows and have done the same for a small number of third party applications. We have also revoked the authentication session tokens for anyone currently running a vulnerable version of our app. If you had previously blocked upgrades beyond version 6.7, we are providing a hotfix that you can download here: https://cdn1.evernote.com/win6/public/Evernote_6.7.6.7584.exe We strongly encourage all customers to update to the latest version of Evernote for Windows. As an additional precaution, you should log out and back in to refresh your authentication token. We have already notified customers that were affected by this directly via email.

    Hi DTLow, Sorry if I expressed myself unclearly. What I meant was that with citavi, I have the option in word to insert the citation of the text as a footnote, the form of the citation being related to what kind of text (e.g. article, judgment etc.) it is. Meaning the citation of the text is the same throughout the document and I can change it later as well. It's a bit off-topic, check out a description of citavi if I am still unclear. Cheers Alex

    This isn't just a night owls/dark room thing. I regularly prefer non-white backgrounds while working during the day in a regularly lit room.

Why???? I've been so loyal to evernote to the point of promoting it to my friends to download because of its usefulness. Would appreciate if you can make the passcode feature soonest so security wise, evernote in my macbook, windows desktop and laptop/tablet is not vulnerable. thanks, ms markey

    When adding business cards to Evernote, there appears to be no way to add fields (i.e. phone, email, address) within the desktop application. I'm aware it can be done in IOS, but the desktop application is missing this feature. Since I do most of work within the desktop application, I would rather be able to add fields within it, rather than having to switch back to my iPhone to accomplish the task.

    In Microsoft Word or any other word processing application it is possible to wrap text around pictures to create a magazine type format in which the picture “flows” seamlessly with the content of the document. Is this being considered for a future version of Evernote? I think it could be one of the biggest UI enhancements to make the application a more personal tool for end users like myself
