    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.

    I added https://evernote.com/ per the suggestion of Mettarefuge. That did not work. I would rather not, for security reason, allow a blanket rule to allow third party cookies. Evernote has 5 cookies set on my PC already. I would prefer not to allow a blanket rules for allowing third party cookies as that presents obvious security issues. I hope Evernote can come up with a less drastic solution.

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

    Yeah, I'm reaching the point where I might abandon Evernote in favor of something that DOES support markdown.

    @Shane D. Since a couple of days and like after a Chrome update, I also experience this problem. Would be great if the Clipper plugin for Chrome could be fixed shortly. The suggestion to turn off "block third-party cookies" is not an option as @Heinz57 already noted. Would be great if you could forward to the Clipper plugin maintainers and release a fix soon.

    Please please please add this feature! Looks like this has been a requested feture over 2 years now? This is literally the only drawback of this notes app for Android. I'll beta test for it. I'll pay. What ever it takes. Let's get this done! 😁

    The notification quick note uses grey text on a grey background making it hard to read. This only happens with dark mode enabled. Evernote 8.6.1 Pixel 3 XL Android 9

    Checkbox items are now double spaced. This is really annoying as some of my notes are entirely lines of checkboxes and are now twice as long to scroll through and difficult to see.

    No, it is actually not heavily developed! The last update was in January - no support for iOS 12, no support for the new iPads and of course no support for Pencil 2. It does not even support Pencil 1! Yes, I used Penultimate for years, but that was before Apple made the iPad a "real" note taking device by releasing the iPad Pro and Pencil in 2015. Penultimate and Evernote were never really updated for the iPad Pro and its possibility for taking hand written notes in a never before seen quality. I am pretty sure you don't have an iPad Pro and a Pencil and you never used one, right?

    I am a paid user and have many Notebooks. I have notebooks that relate to my hobbies as well as my career. On laptops that I bring to work, I only want my business-related notebooks to replicate. After installing Evernote on a new computer, is there a way to tell it what notebooks I would want on that computer? Thanks!

    EDIT: FIXED WITH WORK-AROUND. In the interest of cutting to the chase and helping any google-searchers to find the solution many of us are using, I'm posting that work-around here at the top of the thread. To see my original problem and post, read below. The problem of regular freeze-ups while typing, inserting, or modifying notes via the windows client (which seems to present to users with very large databases) is somehow related to the client using the network in the background. The solution is to create a windows firewall rule blocking evernote.exe while you are using evernote (typing, dropping in graphics, moving notes, whatever). This completely eliminated the freezing for me. Then when you are finished creating or modifying content, you can disable the firewall rule and let the client sync. My workaround lets me just click a shortcut to block evernote (and allow me to use the client without freeze ups), and then allow me to unblock it instantly when done, and will even automatically unblock it after a set time (in case I forget). Still hoping Evernote decides to fix this properly someday. Here are the detailed instructions on how I got my Windows client working again: http://www.evernote.com/l/ALrsBe2IrjdFfbGIOZYVpxRJAOUnjFZD2f4/ Hope it helps. Cheers. ---------- ORIGINAL POST: Hello everyone. Looking for some suggestions to speed up my windows client. I'm wondering if anyone is experiencing the same issues I am, and if the community (or support) have any workarounds. Essentially, here's the situation: My windows clients on all machines have become so slow they are virtually impossible to use. Regular tasks like typing multiple sentences, changing notebooks on a note, adding tags to a note, or even scrolling through a list of notes has stops constantly at somewhat random intervals. The gui freezes (and shows not responding) for sometimes 4 to 5 seconds at a time. And this will typically happen every two or three sentences or so, whether the client is currently syncing or not. Before we start, know that the slow speed is universal through all of my windows computers (multiple decent speed desktops 1 to 2 years, surface book i7, surface pro, etc.) and has been the same across all of the last 5+ versions of the windows client. All of my computers have SSDs (with the database, OS, and Windows client installed on the SSD) and reasonable performance. The problem I suspect the problem is linked to the enormous size of my database. Since I run my business with 68+ employees and 6k+ customers off the system, my database is around 65K notes taking up around 40GB. I realize that I am approaching the 100k note limit quickly (perhaps by the end of this year I'll need to remove some anyway), but I'm wondering if there might be a work around to not have to cut down the database and still have the clients workable. The slowness appears to be entirely related to CPU usage. Monitoring my resources, the SSDs have no trouble keeping up under nearly all circumstances. The CPU however is pegged every few seconds while the gui is being used. (Or rather, since the client seems to be single-threaded, one core is pegged.) The application seems not be multi-threaded in any meaningful fashion, and I can only assume that some background table queries are taking place regularly based upon what I am typing. I could certainly understand if searches were slow with a database my size, or even tagging (since the tag table must be loaded in memory each time a tag is typed, to search for a matching tag name). But there seems to be no reason to have this sort of CPU stall out with things as simple as typing or scrolling through notes. And when it stalls my GUI completely stops responding for 1 to 5 seconds. I have disabled all syncing (in case instant sync or background sync or similar was the problem), and this has not helped. I realize that evernote maintains some kind of word token table for searching. Perhaps this word token table is being searched at regular intervals based up words typed, in order to provide the [completely unused by me] context function? Or perhaps the text I am typing right now is being tokenized at intervals (this should be extremely fast) and then inserted appropriately into the token table at the same intervals (which would probably be where the freezing occurs). Even now as I type this very message in a new note in the windows client my cursor routinely freezes and cues up my keystrokes, only to insert them some seconds later. I have very little experience in database driven applications (and am doing a lot of guessing here), but it seems like a simple decoupling of the interface from the background table queries, token insertion, and the like via multi-threading would easily solve this problem. I realize that is likely low on the priority list of things to accomplish for Evernote, so what I'm really looking for here is a work-around. The first and most obvious solution would be for me to remove a large number of notes (and perhaps place them in a second evernote account). This I am prepared to do, but it's not exactly Plan A. This would be a pretty comfortable solution if we were able to have two accounts on Android devices which we could switch between. I'd be happy to pay the money for a second premium account. Then I would simply keep most of my older notes in the second (slower) account, and could access them easily (if more slowly) by switching accounts on either my windows clients (already possible) or my android devices (not possible as far as I can discover). As there doesn't seem to be the ability to switch accounts on an android device (without deleting my 40GB account and re-downloading the other each time) this solution would mean I wouldn't have access to the older notes when I was away from my windows pcs. Does anyone have any suggestions of other work-arounds? Can anyone think of any guesses as to what the background lookups/etc. causing the high CPU usage actually are, and how I might disable that functionality to be able to use the client again? Can I disable context lookup, just in case that helps? I assume if the holdup is the insertion of tokens into the main search table at regular intervals, that is core functionality that I won't be able to disable from the GUI. I thought I would see what you all think before I spend hours and hours developing a plan on what data to make inaccessible on my mobile devices. Thanks in advance for your help, and Happy New Year!

    A note application that does not support markdown does not make sense for me..

    Just want to add a +1 Evernote is great but I am checking every here and then for an alternative with markdown. For me the core features in evernote are webclipper, tags and reminders. As soon as someone else, e.g. simplenote catches up (there only the webclipper is missing) I am going to leave Evernote alone.

    I was working in a browser version of Evernote, editing a note, and then I discover another note content completely disappeared!!! How do I get back all the important information? No history is available to me, as I don't have a premium account. Please, solve this issue. The program also syncs notes incorrectly. Just copies them and saves two versions with different edits. This is really annoying and makes me lose all the data.

    TL;DR, I'm curious, after two years, this feature still hasn't been supported. Is there anybody explained why?!

    Please, please, please allow us to set a note as plain text only--so that it stays plain text no matter what. Currently, all my notes that I format as plain text are constantly getting various formatting when edited from different platforms and from pasting content on a platform that does not have paste as plain text. I am suggesting a setting for a note that makes it plain text only (could even be a whole notebook). Thus if a note is set to plain text, you would not have to use "Paste As Plain Text" for that note and editing the note from any platform would not add formatting. Think: Windows Notepad--pasting content into it removes all formatting.

    Hi All, You may have noticed that all threads requesting Password Protected Notebooks have been merged into this thread, regardless of platform specificity. (This is a separate request from the ability password protect the Evernote App itself) 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 Password Protected Notebooks here!

    Am I? It lets you gather many disparate forms of information from a variety of sources so they can be organized, annotated, and searched in a unified manner. It provides the same capabilities across multiple different platforms. Users perform many different tasks in Evernote. I believe versatility is one of Evernote's goals. I believe another is efficiency. I think Markdown addresses both of those goals, and would be an extremely effective input and formatting method for a certain class of users.

    I'm a paid user, I need markdown feature. If you're not Evernote employee, no need to follow-up, your answers are ignorant and give negative feeling about Evernote.

    So, what's it going to take for the Evernote decision-making committee to realize this is a serious request? I've stopped using Evernote entirely because of the lack of this ONE incredibly easy to implement feature. At minimum give us a plain text editor where I can avoid the frustration of having my markdown formatting ruined. Having the most highly requested (and easy to implement) feature go this long without being addressed is a continual message saying, "We're not listening, and we don't care."

    I would love to be able to copy a ❏ checkbox from outside of Evernote into Evernote. For example: Our team works on a shared Google doc for meeting notes. When we’re done with the meeting, I archive the contents of the shared doc into Evernote as a meeting archive. Unfortunately, I don’t know of a way to create a checkbox in Google Docs or Word that appears as a "to do" checkbox in Evernote. I have to manually add them if I want to retain their functionality in EN. Maybe there’s a way to do this, but I haven’t found it. Would be nice if the checkbox played well with the clipboard (I’m on a Windows 64-bit machine, using Evernote (306770) Public (CE Build ce-1.39.4387). Edit, 02/20/2018: I see that I can create an unchecked checkbox by typing [] and a checked checkbox by typing [x]. It would be fantastic if EN would recognize that in the clipboard (with an optional setting, of course) and automatically convert [] and [x] text strings to their respective checkboxes. — Rich

    Markdown support would be amazing. This makes Evernote a perfect companion to our development / coding environment.
