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

    Hi all, You asked for Dark Mode in Evernote, and we’re thrilled to announce that it’s finally arrived! You can enable it today for iOS, Android, and Mac (Mojave) and see for yourself. Check out this Help & Learning article for all the details. Please feel free to start a separate discussion for feedback/suggestions, or reach out to Shane D. directly. Welcome to the dark side—lightsabers not included.

    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.

    Giving us dark mode WOULD be giving us feature parity. This is crazy; we've asked for half a decade now for a dark mode; there is NO extant Mac/iOS feature that we've asked for remotely as much as THIS. Come on, Evernote. There have been grumbles over the years about Evernote for Windows being treated like a second-class platform and you announce with fanfare a dark mode AND DON'T EVEN MENTION the Windows version? What kind of message are you trying to send?

    With due respect to you @dconnet (an Evernote employee), there are a great many Windows programs that support a dark mode. The failure to provide it in Evenote for Windows is 100% the failure of the programmers at Evernote; it has nothing whatsoever to do with Microsoft's failings or those of the Windows operating system or its API (oh, sure, if the operating system gives you tools, use them, but when it doesn't, then find your own solution in your own code). Hell, I'm not a programmer -- just a novelist -- and I managed to give your Windows application a dark background for notes; surely your own staff of professional programmers could finish the job. Please don't obfuscate this point or pass the buck; Evernote Corporation needs to deal with this. If your programmers truly lack the skill, then get new programmers (if a CEO can be replaced, surely any programmer who has thrown up his hands FOR FIVE YEARS NOW saying "I don't know how to do this" can be replaced, too). This is ridiculous.

    I have been a Premium user for over 5 years, my entire life is in Evernote, and am on the verge of leaving the service because of the lack of this feature. It's becoming a deal-breaker for me. Markdown is the standard for most newer note taking apps. At the moment, I'm running three note taking apps concurrently: increasingly, I'm just using Evernote as a file and web clippings storage dump area, Google Keep (with a Markdown extension) for notes, lists and thoughts, and Ulysses (a Markdown writing tool) to develop notes into actual articles and books. This is SO irritating because I am constantly switching between three apps. With Markdown support, I would be able to move entirely back to Evernote for all my note taking AND writing needs. Once again, it would become the most important app in my life. Writing in Markdown lets me: Create proper structure to long and complex notes Move from a rough thought, to research, to a full article, and even to a book, without worrying about formatting (I can focus on content) Simply export and publish my writing to almost any publishing outlet (blogs, my actual print publisher... they all want Markdown!) More and more, I'm asking myself why I'm paying so much money every year for Evernote when I could just use Google Drive for storage. You're already failing me for the actual notes-taking and writing parts. I know I'm not the only one who's thinking this. Please guys: I love Evernote and I don't want to move my entire workflow over to a new system, but you are leaving me no choice.

    REQUEST – It would be amazing to have a feature where an image can be selected, and when you right-click (ie, the same way you rotate it, etc.) there could also be an option to override the "largest smallest-dimension" algorithm and set that image as the note's thumbnail. A little background –– One thing I use EN for very heavily is as an artist database for my job. I really like having both a photo of the artist and an example of their artwork at the top of their card. However, when I'm scrolling through snippet or card view, it would be really helpful to have the image of their artwork always be the one to show up. This usually happens but there are a few times where the photo of the artist is used instead. I've read up on the algorithm that chooses the image with the "largest smallest-dimension" (PS, see what I did there with the hyphen? Way clearer that way.) and I am actually OCD enough to try to amend the file sizes to have the algorithm pick the right one. However, even this doesn't seem to work – it's probably me because I guess an algorithm can't lie, but even when I resize the images, it's still not choosing the right one. So my question is – why would that be happening? Could it be that once EN's algorithm chooses an image, it always chooses that filename even when the size changes? But what would be SO MUCH EASIER is my *request* – could there be an override option to the largest smallest-dimension algorithm (which I agree does work at least half of the time for me) to choose a thumbnail? I'm not talking some fancy thing in the settings where you tell EN how to pick your thumbnails – that sounds like way more work than it's worth. I just imagine, like I've said above, having the image you want to be the thumbnail highlighted/selected, then right click (in the same way that you can rotate an image, etc.) and have something like "set as note thumbnail." Please?? Thank you!

    In Evernote 6.11.1 (455059) on macOS 10.12.6, the so-called "confusing" icons are also clearly displayed. I have to admit I did not immediately know the icons for "Presentation Mode" and "Annotate", but it was made very clear when I just moused over those icons. Here's a screenshot: Sorry, @Nick L., but I simply don't understand how this could be confusing.

    @Don Dz @gazumped Apologies for any confusion! We've also released the Android update containing dark mode and it should be starting to appear for users in the Play Store soon if it's not available already. This Android release was staggered, so it may not appear for everyone, everywhere, all at once, but we believe it should be available to everyone by the end of the week. Please continue to keep an eye out, and I'll provide updates should anything change. Thank you!

    I don't understand why after almost 10 years this has not been implemented yet. Also, I don't understand why workarounds such as tags are considered a good solution. Is it that complicated to add more hierarchy levels to the structure?

    I think it's obvious, at this point, that Evernote users want the ability to select the default thumbnail for notes. I agree that it seems ridiculous that this conversation started in 2013 and 4 years later this hasn't been added to the application. As a visual person, the thumbnail helps me quickly find what I'm looking for. For example, when I'm looking for a recipe for pancakes, an image of the video (pertaining to the recipe) of two cooks doesn't help me find what I'm looking for. I need to be able to select the pic of the stack of pancakes. The whole purpose for using Evernote is to be able to organize things so that they are easily found/accessed. I'm confused why this isn't already an option. This seems so simple to implement. Can we get some love on this issue?!

    I'm running High Sierra and just updated Evernote. Font rendering is now much worse. Don´t know if it's quite visible in the screen attached, but... Anyone noticed this?

    I think Evernote is a fantastic product, especially with the iPhone integration. I currently use a program called UltraRecall because of it's heavy use of subfolders. This makes organizing my data very logical. I was wondering if Evernotes has a way to create subnotebooks under existing notebooks to help group numerious notebooks together?

    Ah damn, I really could have used an editable dictionary text file. I have a medical/scientific custom dictionary of 672,208 items! No way to add that volume one-by-one. 🤦‍♂️

    @gazumped, just passing to say that the updated arrived to me in Play Store. Maybe worth chek it. Cross fingers!

    I don't buy that that a trashcan, reminder clock and "I" icon are confusing, especially when they have a tool tip. If that is confusing to them, than the registration process to set up an account, download the app, and install it would be so far beyond their ability they wouldn't ever see an overflow menu or anything else. Just let them use an etch-a-sketch. And aren't frequently used in what context? I have 22,000 notes. Do I use the DELETE icon 22,000 times? No, of course not. Do I have 22,000 reminders? No, of course not. But I use it enough that it should be on the regular menu. Know what I ALMOST NEVER EVER USE? The big fat share icon. Put that on the little menu with a big neon green pulsating light if you want, and put the other stuff back on the tool bar.

    I love the new templates feature—I've been looking forward to it for a while! When creating a new note from a template, metadata is not retained. Specifically, tags saved onto the template are not added to the new note. This seems like an oversight to me, since templated notes are likely to have many tags in common.

    I'd really like an option to just add a PDF as a note rather than as an attachment on the note. It's pretty trivial, but when I'm saving something that's just a PDF (like sheet music for example) it's a little inconvenient to have to open the note and then click the attachment. Thanks!

    Thanks Rich. I have blocked the cookie. I don't even have a facebook account, and am bothered by how much Facebook still tracks me. I don't want Facebook OR ANY social network to know what I am doing on Evernote. It is one thing to have it on the general evernote.com site for likes or whatever, but quite another IMHO when I am logged into my account. That should be bare bones to allow Evernote's service to function, not to retarget users on social media sites, or provide Facebook any data for EN users that don't have Facebook accounts.

    I try to keep my daily hours worked per project in a table in Evernote. I would like this function so I can have the table tally each day and project for me.

    I SOOO need this feature. I would like to use Evernote as my Read-it-later like service. But with accidental edits, it is discoursing me from using it. just have a button or something that converts a note into a read only mode so we can customize what becomes read only and what can be edited.

    I would be a paying customer *for life* if Evernote had LaTeX support.
