    I feel on the biggest missing features is native support for Markdown. Please add native Markdown to Evernote.

    Hey folks, Evernote for Mac 7.10 Beta 1 is now live. You can download it here. Improved Improved note loading speeds Improved search performance in slower networks Fixed Fixed an issue where copying text from Evernote and pasting it on 3rd party app would introduce an extra carriage return Searching Evernote notes with Spotlight now works on Mojave Fixed an issue where tags wouldn't delete using the keyboard shortcut Fixed an issue where the mic access prompt didn't appear Fixed an issue where text was illegible in the saved search edit field Fixed an issue deleting a page from a PDF in annotation mode Known issues: Text is fuzzy in non retina displays. Complex notes are choppy when scrolling.

    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.

    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!

    Hi all, I’m excited to announce the launch of our new, free, Evernote for Gmail add-on! Many of us find ourselves buried under inbox overload—that frustrating situation where emails pile up faster than we can read them. With this new integration, you can take the important emails out of your inbox and into Evernote, where you can get organized, make a plan, and take the next step. You can also insert the notes you create into your email as a public link anyone can view to keep everyone on the same page. With the Evernote for Gmail add-on, you can bring the best out of your inbox. Please click here to learn more. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

    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 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.

    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.

    Well, all I can say is these forums are littered with posts of accidental secondary accounts causing notes to "disappear". It is the de facto way to start the debug.

    Recommendation: Downgrade to Beta2. Seriously. (We're working on rolling back all the CEF changes that went into Beta3. I'll need a substance abuse program when this is done.)

    I want to thank JohanDahlberg for starting this topic. I've been an Evernote user for so long that I've gotten stale and repetitive in my usage of it. I use The Brain a lot more now than I use Evernote but reading through these ideas is making me realize how powerful and useful Evernote is. I am 4 notes short of 20,000 and I'm sure I'll get there just by clipping four of the above ideas. I wish we had more topics like this as opposed to the "Why I'm leaving Evernote", etc. Whenever I start using new software (Notion, The Brain, task managers), I often try to figure out ways to get some of my Evernote data into those programs. It's just easier to keep it in Evernote and expand my use of it. I had forgotten about IdeaPlaces, for example - a great tool. Thanks for the kick in the butt, Johan, and all of the above contributors.

    It definitely wasn't that we weren't allowed to. I think it was a combination of things. People were too busy on other projects or it wasn't really prioritized. I also think most employees didn't take the time, as there wasn't really a "culture" of engaging our customers, as you put it. I can't really say for sure. What I can say now is that the CEO is trying to change that. We've got a senior leader whose title is basically "Voice of the Customer." The CEO is also pushing everybody to think about the customer as we work on initiatives. I think it will take time to get people more engaged, but I'm seeing it a little more already.

    @MatS14, since, as your OP now shows, the same phenomenon is happening in this forum and in the Evernote Web interface, I'd bet the farm (if I still had a farm) that it's something to do with your browser, not with these two (AFAIK) unrelated Websites.

    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.

    Curious. This works for me in the latest beta ( (308380) Prerelease (CE Build ce-62.3.7750)). I tried this with my own sppace-containing tag, plus your -tag:"department meeting" tag. You're not using curved quotation marks (“…”), are you? That shows the same behavior you're seeing. I use: "

    I submitted a bug report for this a few days ago. I'm frankly shocked that there has not been any official Evernote response here. This lack of transparency and communication is really inexcusable. It shows a profound lack of interest in customers.

    For editing, the Evernote editor/format is adequate for basic notes I use dedicated editors for serious work; Word/Pages for word processing, Excel/Numbers for spreadsheets, Notability for note-taking on my iPad, ... I am aware of Notion; lots of good editor stuff but imho it does not do a better job at document storage/retrieval >>As a senior poster in the forum, you need to reply based on how the 'average evernote user would use the tool'. No, I don't "need to" do any such thing. I am an experienced Evernote user, and I post my ideas of how to best use the product/service.

    Hi All, I wanted to take some time to announce some changes you’ll be seeing in the discussion forums that we hope will help to improve your experience! First, we will be enabling a feature called Best Answer that will enable the person that starts a thread to mark a specific reply/comment as the ‘Best Answer’. This will then mark the thread as ‘answered’, and enable other users to quickly see that the question has been answered. To mark a reply as a Best Answer simply click on the 'check mark' icon in upper left hand corner of the post you're marking: When marked with a Best Answer, the thread will look like this: Then, you can see the 'Best Answer' clearly marked in list of forum posts: Our hope is that the Best Answer feature will better enable users who are asking questions to get the information they’re looking for, while also enabling users that have similar questions to find that same information more easily. Secondly, we’ve received a lot of feedback on the similarities between the FAQ’s and Best Practices sections. As there is a lot of overlap between the two, we’ll be merging the FAQ’s and Best Practices into a single forum under the banner FAQ's: Best Answers Moving forward, the FAQ's: Best Answers section of the forums will become a repository for the Best Answers we see in the other parts of the forums. Essentially, think of the FAQ's: Best Answers sections as a sort of best answers hall of fame.

    I'd have to go back a dozen versions because it has just gotten worse with every release. Your interface/UI team should be fired and replaced. Do some user testing, or something. It's horrible. We're all on Macs and increasingly everyone we work with is complaining about it. You guys should figure it out before it's too late. Your software has gone from a business essential to absolute garbage on all platforms. The mobile apps should be dragged out and shot too. Sorry, to be harsh, but it's reality. I have hundreds of notes, and dumping to html isn't exactly easy to manage and import into another system.

    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.

    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!

    Hello, I love the code block feature that was added. However, I think it has some down falls. Mostly, I think it is lacking in text formatting. An amazing feature would be for Evernote to recognize some popular coding languages and be able to color code variables and other identifiers. At the very least, I wish the code block kept my formatting when I copied and paste from a text editor. I often copy and paste code from SQL management Studio hoping for the color coding to stay, which it does not. If I copy into a normal section, it is fine but, the code block removes the color formatting. (I have tried pasting with match style, does not work). I think this would make Evernote more robust and be able to reach a larger audience. Mainly, extend reach to developers who would like a place to effectively store their code for reuse. Thank you for taking the time to consider this idea!

    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.

    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?!

    I merged your two posts. The Portuguese title was lost; you can edit the post and add it. The content is stored in the Evernote database; master version on the server with copies on our devices. Yes, it's possible to "download" content. On my Mac, for specific content I right click > Save As For a note, I right click > Save Atachments To Folder My weekly full backup uses the export feature to "download" a full copy of all my content

    I agree! To some extent, the Best Answers/FAQs forum can help with this; but I enjoy (and save into Evernote!) notes on uses and ways to organize Evernote. Some day I plan to get enough time free to look through it all!

    Just a general note on pc problems I'd been living with a pc that seemed to be stuck on 100% disk usage most of time for ages. I googled it and tried the suggestions on a couple of sites about altering this and that but nothing seemed to work. The other day out of desperation, I trawled through task scheduler and and my start up folders and just chucked a bunch of stuff out. I could not believe the difference it made, it's been like having a new pc To view the the 2 startup folders, hold down the windows key and press the "R" key to open the Run box, then type shell:common startup for one and shell:startup for the other. To view what's in your task scheduler , hold down the windows key and press the "R" key to open the Run box, then type taskschd.msc If your situation is anything like mine there'll be a load of stuff that you don't need. For example I don't need my printer software doing some task every few minutes, forever.

    I've seen quite a few requests for thumbnail views of images, and it hadn't occurred to me until now that Evernote will do this in one quite useful way... I just took a series of pictures of a user guide, and was about to add all the images to a PDF file so they would get OCR'd and could be read and searched through in case of need. Being incredibly lazy (my best feature) I didn't want to move all the pictures (there are 15) to my desktop to merge them, OCR and re-save them. So I wondered what would happen if I used the desktop option to shrink the pictures so I could see all of them at once. Then (enquiring mind here) I wondered how small I could get these pictures. The result is shown below. If I click on any of these pictures I get a readable version in 'gallery' mode, and since they're all in the same note, I can then scroll back and forth through the whole series as larger images to read the manual normally. It's not rocket science (SpaceX seem to have that covered these days! Good launch!!) but I though you might be interested.

    Either that, or don't connect to the Wifi and just use LTE. That is the only way you can guarantee security. Even if you use their Wifi with your VPN, they may block VPN traffic, and if you disconnect the VPN and it stays connected to wifi, your apps, like Evernote, will continue to sync in the background, and that is open to being decrypted by your IT department. Once you use IT resources, be it a computer, phone, or just their network access, you are agreeing to having your traffic decrypted while it is on their network before it is re-encrypted to go to the internet.

    I can understand why Evernote split the Notes and Reminder views into two tabs. However I have a ToDo notebook that consists of 100% reminders. The Reminders view is always what I select in that notebook without exception. I also have a few tags that are always reminders without exception. Can you add an option to default it to Reminders tab? Even if it's a hidden view preference or option so it doesn't bother other users.

    Hi all. I'm following up to confirm that we pushed a fix out for this on 03/27. Please let me know if you continue to encounter any issues with revoking a device. @EdH I agree wholeheartedly. However, we have complications with how we do deployments that getting out hot fixes is not easy and also disruptive itself. So it's a balancing act when deciding whether to disrupt our users for a brief period of time to make the fix. As part of our rearchitecture efforts, we will be making changes which should allow us to deploy individual changes faster and independent of other changes.

    @DTLow With full regards to you being a senior poster here, how long are we going to continue this fan-boy games? How long are we going to live in denial? When someone posts a problem, why do we have to go with 'It works fine with me.', doesn't matter. maybe, it works for you, but in general what is the software experience of Evernote for most users? Are you still living in denial that new tools like Notion have come up, and do a much much better job than Evernote in almost all ways? Do we continue to live in denial that hardly any mentionable 'meaningful features' have come up in Evernote or for that matter, even if EN continues to be focussing on ironing out existing issues ( This has been said from the era of Phil Libin, then O Neill and now Ian small as well), why does it take so long to fire up the app, or to create a note? How much long are we going to live in denial mode?

    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.

    Hi All, You may have noticed that all threads requesting the ability to use text collapse/outlining 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 use text collapse/outlining here!

    BTW, since Evernote is a customer of Google's (https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/226885427-Google-Cloud-Platform-FAQ.,) I'd say that this is pretty unlikely. Beyond that, I can't comment. LVL 5 Deep State stuff, you know...
