    Evernote Wizards. Please, give us a dark theme. My eyes are bleeding with how bright your default theme is. (both web & desktop) No suprise, it is mostly white. A great choice for clean design, but ultimately a fail for intensive use. Please, give us a dark theme. Best Regards, Your Paying Customer

    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.

    I'm sorry, but unless I'm missing something, I hate this update to Penultimate. I have to 2-finger scroll through my notes now? I no longer have a "thumbnail" view to use? So, on a notebook that I've been treating like a journal type notebook, I now have to SCROLL through 40 or 50 pages to find something, instead of being able to use a thumbnail view to jump to a page? "Pages" are, in fact, gone, since it's one long note now? Also, the response time to the stylus is MUCH slower and glitchier than it was (rendering handwriting much less legible), and the ERASE feature now doesn't fully erase things, and leaves behind fragments of things that should be erased. Awful, awful changes. This used to be like writing in a Notebook, and that's what I loved about it. I'll now be looking for a new app like Moleskin or something, and finding a way to sync that to my Evernote account. What a shame. Who thought these would be good changes? Awful.

    Dear All, I really would love to see a solution for archiving notes. I've been using for 4 years and now I have some notes that I want to keep in the system, but want to remove from my search. As time goes, my search are getting more difficult to separate valid information and archived information. Like we have Notes, Notebook, Tags, Atlas, Market and Premium button on the Mac version, I dream with an Archive button. Every note I move to this icon will make it not searchable, unless I'm searching inside the Archive View. You could even move a completely Notebook. I have many scenarios where this is valid, some of them here: You finished a graduation course full of notes and you want these notes in a place that you may need but normally it will not be part of your search or have a distract visual in All Notes ViewYou closed a company and want all the notes in a special placeYou may not want to have this Archive notes in your local hard disk, unless you click "Download"You prepare for a vacation and suddenly canceled. You want to have this hide in some place but not displaying all the time. I think it would be a great feature. Thank you, Patrick Santana

    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?

    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, 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.

    Hey, I would like to make a feature request for evernote to implement a text collapse, as seen in coding software such as Dreamweaver. The idea is to make it a little bit easier to organise long lists. Simply mark the desired text, collapse it and then you're able to toggle on and off and eventually remove the collapse when you don't need it anymore. Here's a picture I found: http://www.creativepro.com/files/story_images/20050926_expand.jpg It's a really simple feature, but it would make my Evernote life easier! Philip A

    I agree unless I am missing something with this new update I am looking for a new app. This is awful!!

    I'm a happy Evernote user, but I miss a feature many people have asked for and will greatly appreciate - support for LaTeX formulas. If may sound complicated, but integration should be actually extremely simple. Here's how it could work: 1) Similarly to URL-to-hyperlink conversion, a LaTeX formula could be automatically generated by converting text surrounded by specific characters ($ in LaTeX). For example, I can type "Today we will discuss how equations of the form $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$ can be solved" 2) Finally, the formula text can be converted to an image. Luckily, there are many online services that given the LaTeX source produce a PNG image (even with transparency and custom color by some services). So the only thing the Evernote team needs to implement is to provide the option to automatically and manyally convert a piece of text to an image by querying some well-established online service. So adding LaTeX math support boild down to implementing a simple UI feature! Now it sounds simple, but this could be a selling point to a huge amount of people (especially in academia). I'm not aware of any good note taking tool that has seamless formula integration and synchronization. Even in the current Evernote state the functionality can be emulated by dragging LaTeX formula images to Evernote. However, this is tedious and does not facilitate modifications. Therefore, it would be good after the image has been acquired, the source text to be saved along for future modifications. What do you think, Evernote staff? P.S. I just saw on your blog that you're supporting the use of Evernote in schools, etc. This makes the suggested feature even more prominent.

    A thing that's been bothering me in this great service ever since I started using it 2 years ago, is that it is not possible to set a sorting order for a specific notebook. To me this seems very basic, so I was very disappointed that it's still not available in the new beta. I mean, am I the only one who wants my receipts ordered by date and my recipes ordered by title? My family photos ordered by date and my art photos ordered by title? I do sincerely hope this can be implemented!! Once again, thanks for the great software.

    It sucks. Pages are rotated 90 degrees. I don't like scrolling; I would rather turn pages. AND WHERE ARE THE COVERS WITH NAMES? (Shout deliberate.) I have dozens of notebooks from client visits. How do I know which is which? I want my old version back.
  13. 21 points
    Indeed, Nested notebooks, nested tags, saved searches. And even just a simple compact list-overview of my notes.... All gone. When you are a heavy user of the "the secret weapon" / evernote like I am... This beta is not looking good at all.

    How do I get the old version back? How do I not have things enlarged and rotated? Where are the instructions? How do I get help? Thanks Bard

    Is there any way to change the background color of the interface from white to something else? I was very excited to see the Evernote Clearly interface because you could click the lamp and change background of the page! However when I realized the page could not be saved that way in Evernote, I was very disappointed. As we may all know the intense white background on most interfaces is a doozey on our vision, so anything to assist in improving that would be a huge plus. Maybe the ability to change the white background to light grey or dark grey background with black text, or black background with white text, etc... On the upside I rely on Evernote HEAVILY for work, home, everything, in short this app RULES! Thanks in advance for any input or responses...

    One major annoyance with the UI downgrade in v5 is that as you scroll down in a note, the Note Title scrolls away and becomes hidden. Sometimes I need to refer to or edit the title and now it forces me to lose my place in the note to scroll back to the top - please revert this senseless behavior! Thank you

    Please, for so many reasons, give us back the old version. I echo the concerns above regarding one speed scrolling, writing engine that fails (unless you like your words turning into Morse Code), one long page like a ticker tape, and more. What did we do to offend the gods? Is this just a ploy to sell $77 stylus the size of a small tree?

    Hi guys, I have to agree with many of the others here....Penultimate has been my go-to note taking app throughout grad school and I am extremely disapointed with this new update. 1) The "ink" in all my previous notes is too thick and renders much or my small writing illegible 2) I agree with others, the scrolling feature is very frustrating when I have large notebooks full of information that I want to jump through 3) the app responds very slowly to my writing now and makes my handwriting much messier. I can hardly draw a good circle, even in zoomed in mode. Is there anyway I can downgrade? At least so I can export my 2 1/2 years worth of class notes in a legible format? This is really a discouraging update, it pretty much made this an entirely new app.....please let me know if there's anyway I can get back to how things were. Thanks, Chris

    (Thread updated to reflect our blog post here) On Monday of this week, a group of security researchers discovered and publicly disclosed a vulnerability in OpenSSL, a software package that is widely used to secure online communications. They called the bug Heartbleed. Evernote does not use, and has not used, OpenSSL, so we were not vulnerable to this bug. As an Evernote user, you don’t need to take any action. Some of the services that we use, for example, our support ticketing system, do use OpenSSL. These services have all fixed the bug. We do not believe that any sensitive data was accessed. We are actively monitoring the situation and will notify you if we discover anything.

    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!

    I'm not happy with this at all! I don't sync my stuff much, but this update forced me to sign in. Then it proceeded to sync without asking or informing me. I wouldn't have minded except it deleted all my recent notes and restored old crufty ones. How do I get my old notes back? Not all of us spend all of our time in a permanent date of syncing with everything, but when we do we expect syncing to behave properly! And at least to be asked if we want to do it first. Ironically I was considering getting the Adjonit pen but after this experience I may look elsewhere for note taking facilities.

    I had the same problem with the sync not working (unable to connect to server). On the tech blog they noted that evernote no longer supports SSL3.0 and it will be disabled. I went to internet options on my computer and unchecked the option for SSL 3 and enabled the TLS option. I am now able to access evernote on my PC Hopefully this was the only issue.

    Wow. The comments on there are fairly supportive. I'm shocked. I don't want to get all elitist about it, but I can't help but wonder if the new design is great for people who dabble in Evernote. Not so great for power users.

    Hello everyone, I too stressed out this morning but then found the answer. In any of the clients (Mac, PC, iPhone, Android) go to the Notebooks tab and scroll to the bottom. You'll see the trash folder there and can pick anything out of it.

    I keep my daily journal in Evernote, and I'm on the second year of a two-years mission to move all my past journals there as well. (I'm 54 this years and have been keeping a journal off and on since high school, so there's a lot...) Here's what I do: Separate notebook called Journal Each note has a title in this format: Journal YYYYMMDD ddd (ddd=Sun, Mon, Tue, etc.) I make a note for each month with a title like: Journal 20120300 Mar - in each of these I make a 7x7 table that looks like a conventional calendar, and I drag each day's entry into the corresponding cell to make a link I make a note for each year with a title like: Journal 20120000 - Drag each month note into it to make links for each month One last master note: Journal 000000 - you guessed it, contains a link to each year Yes, I am way too into this. I figured that if I'm going to spend two years doing this, I'm going to do it right. New journal entries are easy, and at the end of each month I construct the monthly page in about 15 minutes on my MacBook. I attach PDFs, images, even a few small videos and audio files to appropriate days -- everything from memorabilia like ticket stubs to meeting notes and handouts. Plus photos (if I have a bunch of photos for one day, I usually try to pick one or two good ones for the journal - all of them are in iPhoto). The upshot of all this obsessiveness is that by the end of this year, I expect I'll have my entire life in Evernote.
