    Hi Everyone - First, I want to apologize that we're all here. Because you’re rightfully complaining about something that should never have happened. I take ownership of it. This year for us has been all about making very hard decisions around competing priorities, and on this one, we erred. We had expected that Apple would release Safari along with macOS Catalina later in October. When Apple released Safari on Sept 20th, we were surprised, we weren’t ready, and we ended up leaving you out in the cold. Even with the release date being pulled in, that shouldn't have happened. Apologies aren't worth much compared to actions, but know that you have my apology for this. Prior to the 20th, we had thought we were on track. Part of our engineering work was focussed on the changes Apple had made in their plugin architecture. But another part of the engineering work was focussed on re-plumbing a large chunk of the web clipper internals to match other work we are doing across all of the clients in support of improved reliability and sync. Because of the way the engineering work had been structured, when Safari 13 came out, we didn't have a releasable set of code that we could quickly bundle up and get into the catalog. Instead, we have had to re-order the work to get to something releasable, with the goal of getting you all back on a path to a fully-functional Web Clipper in Safari as soon as possible. So as has been suggested above, we will be first releasing a reduced version of the Web Clipper for Safari to deliver you core pieces of the functionality you are currently missing. That first release will not be a complete replacement of all the functionality that works in Safari 12 today. We will fast-follow that initial release with subsequent releases that fill in the gaps until we once again have a full implementation of the Web Clipper in Safari. Our goal is to have that initial release into your hands next week, but I should underscore that we still have real work to do to get to a sufficiently stable build that we are comfortable releasing. As you are all probably aware, there is an entire rollover of Apple’s software platforms taking place in a 45-day period at the moment. That's been challenging to manage. If I could go back to do it all over again, we would have been ready with the Safari Web Clipper. Which means there are lessons for us to learn in balancing priorities. I apologize again that we didn't get it right. We are taking all the actions at our disposal, including literally working around the clock to get the software you need back in front of you again. ian

    When viewing notes on the phone, frequently I switch to other apps to do things like reply message, searching some content of the notes on the internet and so on. However, unlike the built-in Notes app on IOS, Evernote frequently reloads itself and returns to the top of the page and unsaves the action performed before switching to other apps. It very frustrating when the note is very long with lots of tables and we are editing something. It would be so much easier if the app can keep its status in memory much longer so that we can view the same things again after switching back. Since IOS Notes itself can do it and there is no problem on my Mac, I assume there could be a way of fixing this for IOS? I am using a iPhone 8 for reference. Thank you very much.

    Hello, In evernote web there is a non intuitive behavior. In the clients, I can click on the notebook name and I can change the notebook of the note. In Firefox for windows 10, when I click the notebook it simply refreshes the page - this should not happen. For moving to a new notebook I need to go to the 3 dot menu, and select move note - an extra click. But also, the list that appears are all my notebooks without their stack, meaning a big confusion when i have 200 notebooks (I dont use tags). Also, the text is very hard to read in the note list because it is grey and the font is not very easy on the eyes. Check the last updated text on the screenshot.

    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.

    The news that you will not be ready with a new extension for the next OS is unacceptable. You knew it was coming. Is there an ETA on it? I have been an Evernote customer for almost 10 years. I rely on it. And now, because of this I can't upgrade until you get your $&#! together and release an update. This is ridiculous. Makes me regret ever touching your product. I doubt a moderator will approve this. But I don't know how else to complain. I read these articles about how Evernote is in trouble and I've ignored them. But now I'm not so sure.

    @jstncwlcx Thank you for reaching out, and for sharing your feedback. As Gazumped mentioned, we're working to centralize feedback regarding the clipper issue here: That being said, I'm going to lock this thread so that other users can be directed there. Feel free to reach to out to me if you have any other questions, and keep an eye on that thread as I will provide further updates there about the Safari clipper issue as soon as they are available.

    This is a very, very, long-standing HTML feature, and oh so very useful for long notes. Two features I see essential for long (more than one page/screen) notes: Anchors/bookmarks Collapsible sections Both have been available in web pages since the early days of the web (late 1990's). ATTN: Evernote/ @Jackolicious, @SoftwareMarcus, @Justin Street: Come on, this is the very definition of productivity!

    This is a large reason why I avoid using the web client. My structure and daily workflow revolves around my tag hierarchy. Bringing the tag hierarchy into the new web client would be where I would cast my vote for priorities if anyone at Evernote is reading this.

    Spaces make tons of sense in a 1-person account! I found this thread because I was searching for any discussion about Spaces ever coming to Premium (even with a surcharge). I want more control over grouping notebooks than just stacks. I'd love to have pinned notes for each "space" (for me: each client) and the visual layout of the Spaces Dashboard would be terrific. All I'd really need is for them to drop the 2-account minimum for Business and I'd be in.

    I'm just working on a desktop computer using a mouse, not a pen or stylus. I find that when I click the Shape icon, it turns the feature on, and then when I draw something remotely resembling a square (I can't draw well at all), the shape is turned in to a perfectly regular square. Likewise with a triangle, circle, ellipse, etc. When the feature is turned off, my crude attempts stay crude.

    Hi. We're a (mainly) user-supported Forum. While Evernote staffers do read these posts it may be some time before your comment comes to their attention. I'd suggest you raise it directly with Support here - https://help.evernote.com/hc/requests/new (They might need more details about how you're getting data from your emails - copy/ paste or Evernote Clipper etc...)

    Yes, indeed. The bug has existed for months, I reported it months ago, and I recently learned that it still hasn't been fixed because it was judged to be "a priority"! I complained once more, and the tech support person said she would raise the priority. Frankly, I think this is inexcusable.

    Greetings, I am attempting to setup widgets for myself on android and I have encountered some inconsistencies. I desire to view a list of notes under a certain tag or notebook and be able to open a specific note from the home screen. It appears if Evernote is closed in the background, it will open right to the note I picked, as desired. HOWEVER, once Evernote is open, it will reopen the app to where I left off instead of the note I tap. So if i was last looking at a search in the app, and I tap a note from the homescreen, it will open that search instead of the note I chose. Is there something I am misunderstanding or is this a known issue? I couldn't find any info on it so I figured I would run it by you fellas. Thanks!

    Safari 13 has already arrived in updates for Mojave. I can't accept that the only reason not to update to it is that they are behind in their support.

    The Evernote staff (I'm not one) appreciate all feature requests, and there's nothing in this one to not "approve". This one's been made before and been discussed pretty thoroughly, and for the sake of the forums here, I've merged your request and ensuing discussion with an already existing identical one. Feel free to upvote at the top left of the topic...

    Ooo that is very creative! I was aware that you could perform internal references, but I had not considered this use. I may go with this as it offers more flexibility than the shortcuts option, and I can organize right from my home screen. Thank you ^-^

    I would be thrilled if EN provided this feature to Auto Collapse ALL Stacks or Tags... but AFAIK they do NOT! You have to manually move your cursor over each open Stacks drop-down to close it, or alternatively, you could use the plus/minus + - symbols, keyboard shortcuts, to open or close a stack, but again each stack needs to be done manually.

    I've got both a Plus and a Premium account and the "Plus" is NOT eligible (that's what it says when I try) for this upgrade discount. I had considered it but if I can't do it I really don't care. The "Plus" is just for testing stuff anyway.

    Yeah, I can't check the code to verify that anymore, but I do remember a fixed list existing... (a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far away, I was doing something in that code...)

    From my point of view Penultimate is not up to the job of handwritten note taking. It lacks nearly everything a good note taking app will provide. It still lives in the world of the old fashioned stylus that does not reflect the abilities of todays pencils. I tried it a while ago, and quit very fast. The handwritten notes are simply dead, not really searchable, bad hand-eye-coordination, lack of tools etc. Consequently I would not regard it as a loss if the option of direct handwritten input would cease to exist with iOS 13. On my iPad Pro I am using GoodNotes 5, that has more functions added only within the last couple of month than Penultimate might get one day (if anybody decides to put development hours into it). The latest extension was a very nice presentation mode, that switches the iPad into a flexible white board for meetings, education or trainings. Another good option seems to be Notability, with an option to sync the handwriting directly into EN.

    Hi, I have just discovered the Evernote business card scanner - this is a great feature and now going through my tower of cards on my desk. However, the issue I have is that when you scan the card and it doesn't say recognise the address or that there is an address field, there is no option to add a field afterwards on the desktop app once saved or on the Android app after you take a picture of it. This is frustrating and should be an easy fix! I end up having to manually type the address in the note, which doesn't have a nice hyperlink and inconsistent with the other cards I have saved. Am I missing something - this seems to be possible in iOS. Surely the ability to add a field in the business card note should be easy to build in? Any help appreciated!

    After this update i cannot open anymore any of home screen shortcuts. Evernote opens up, but it stays on whatever note/location it was before. Step by step: Create a shortcut on your home screen to your note. Navigate back to evernote and open any other note. Go back to home screen, open the schortcut. Evernote opens up, but it's on the other note. The same issue exists for the previously created schortucts, and the ones newly created after the update. The workaround is to close Evernote before opening the schortcut. Now Evernote will open the correct note, but it's time consuming to find Evernote between all the apps and close it. This is a huge thing for me, because I have 12 schortucts on my home screen and I use them multiple times a day P.S. Evernote asks for passcode in my case, and after that it doesn't ask for 1 hour. However, it always works incorrectly even if passcode was entered already in that hour. Thought, it's worth to mention since that's one of the changes in the release.

    I used to be able to use the web clipper extension within the mobile chrome browser on my iPad to save PDF documents to my Evernote notebook. It starts to work but it never finishes saving, even after 10 minutes. I’m not a total idiot, so I checked my bandwidth and the speed test shows over 200 Mbps. What else can I try other than using a different browser? I have been having this issue with all PDFs for over two months.

    Hello, fellow Evernote users! My name is Marcin, and I have been using Evernote for almost a decade now. I still love it. There are many ways to use Evernote, but the thing that was missing for me is that I have hundreds of notes, moments of insights, quotes that I have stored or highlighted from various sources but very little ways to use them in creative ways. I wanted some lightweight operation on top so that the Evernote content - that I worked so hard to input over the years - works for me in real life with minimal effort, even if just a bit. I was interested mainly in two aspects : - Spaced Repetition for notes and highlights (using Ebbinghaus forgetting curve https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forgetting_curve) - Priming myself with notes and highlights in a lightweight way (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Priming_(psychology)) Since I'm passionate about mobile experiences, what could I do? I built a tool for myself that fills that void for me. If I found it valuable, I thought it might also help others. So today, I've submitted Android app to the Google Play store as a free app. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.idearoots.neuracache iOS app is in the works. Let me know if you find a tool like this useful or not. It is very basic at the moment, but gets the job done and I have few ideas how to push it further. Here is a video showing basic features Thanks! - Marcin

    As far as I know, Google Authenticator is just a normal TOTP generator. So if you select "Google Authentnicator" in evernote, you should be able to scan the QR code with any TOTP app or manually copy the Authenticator Key (string). I myself am using a password manager with 2FA (Bitwarden) and was able to set it up using the option "Google Authenticator" in evernote setup.

    I have been a Premium user for over 6 years (or maybe 7) , I feel MarkDwon support is the most important feature to support in the future. The Chinese version Evernote is already support MarkDwon, I don't understand why the progress of International Evernote is so slow?

    Hello, As a former Windows programmer, I would love to know why the Evernote for Windows team do not provide multiple Windows / Tabs. Especially as this has been asked for many times before. Can the team please explain why they don't provide these features, like the OSX version of Evernote? Fellow users - please do not reply with answers that I have seen in other posts such as: Open multiple notes Use the Web Browser alongside the desktop version I don't think this feature is important (!) ... I am after a technical explanation and not a subjective answer. Providing multiple windows in Windows is not difficult.

    Have you tried the app with new iPad and Pencil. Writing in these app is very natural without any lags like in notability, noteshelf, ... On the other side the instant transformation of handwriting is incredible. I want to use as few apps as possible. Integrate this well working process of natural writing and transformation direct in Evernote would be a great step forward: Example: Open a new note in meetings, handwriting and after meeting transform this to typed text instant - without using a third party app without syncing or export as pdf.

    Dear Devs in Evernote. Evernote is the best note taking app out there hands down. But for anybody working in development one big issue is missing markdown support. Nowadays Markdown is: a standard, a convenient, fast and reliable method to write tech docs That's why any developer I know, including myself, is using some additional Markdown editor trying desperately to fit it somehow into Evernote workflow. There is plethora of such tools: Atom iA Writer Bear Writer Byword Day One Markdown Pro Marxico Quiver Ulysses etc. Which means that there are libraries if not the whole ready to plug-in text editors supporting markdown. All the above applications are great for note taking in markdown, writing tech documents, essays or even books. However they don't integrate with Evernote at all (with exception of Atom and Marxico) and they all lack (to a different degree): powerful image support not to mention stellar Evernote OCR advanced Evernote search easiness of sharing notes in Evernote Evernote notebook feature Please put some pressure on the product managers to prioritize this feature. Integrate Markdown editor into Evernote to make great product even better.

    Hi. AFAIK this is not possible; you can link to notes, but not to headings, or bookmarks. You could set up keywords at various points in a document and jump with searches - but that's not embeddable in a document. You could also use a document type that includes this sort of linkability - Word documents or PDFs for example - and attach that to your note.
