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

    One of Evernote's iOS App's BIGGEST FAILINGS is not allowing choice of a default font and size. YOUR PRODUCT AND USERS DESERVE BETTER so that the iOS app is consistent with minimal font features of other Evernote products and competitors. This only requires addition of TWO basic features: (1) Selection from a basic list of the usual standard fonts, and (2) selection of the desired font size. How can a text app NOT provide these basics? Any text editor (including Evernote Windows and Web apps, and even the text box I'm using here) allows selection from a standard list of fonts and sizing using equivalent of points (8-72). CURRENT EVERNOTE iOS: No font choices and only 3 poorly implemented size buttons (small, medium, large... whatever these mean). I strongly suggest that you add these essentials as soon as possible. I see that users have left Evernote just because of this key failing. I'm confident Evernote can do this for iOS users.

    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?!

    Please let us select the thumbnail picture shown in the note previews. I read the forum and I saw there is an annoying work around, but that's why I'm requesting this feature for real. Something like: • right click the image and select "Use this as Preview image" (I believe this should be the easiest to implement) • right click the note preview and select "Pick a thumbnail" that leads to a small selection of the images available inside that note • right click the image and set a priority that overrides the current priority These are just ideas, but any of those would be amazing so we have decent control over the thumbnail pic!

    I have just gotten Ubuntu 13.04 on my computer. Is there an Evernote for Linux or should I just use Wine?

    Hello, I'm quite a long time Evernote user. However, recently I find that it is hard to be productive on Evernote. Save search work incorrectly on Android (I know that logout and login will solve this issue, but have to do this a few time a day is too bad), can't set what image to use as a note's thumbnail, and much more. I just find out today that there is a new service, called Notion.So. Gonna give it a try but would like to know the opinion of others who have test it. Thank you in advance.

    Hi all, I made a simple service to let you write Markdown notes on your local machine or mobile phone, using your preferred text editor, and have it synced via Dropbox to Evernote: https://notes.giggy.com It's very lightweight atm. One-way syncing only. No tags. No sub-folders. I can add these things later if enough people are interested... Why? I really like Evernote. But I don't like the interface to Evernote. As a coder, I like the interface to Atom, Sublime Text, and iTerm. I love writing in a plain text editor with Markdown format. Markdown is a beautiful thing. Unfortunately, Evernote doesn't let me use markdown. I like to write a lot of notes and Evernote isn't the most convenient thing to pull up. Sometimes I like to write very long notes and Evernote gets laggy. I don't like to rely on a third party service to hold all my content, so it's nice to have a local copy of everything. And... I was curious about AWS Lambda and needed a good test project. I couldn't find the solution I wanted (which was so simple, I couldn't believe somebody didn't do it already...), so I created a free service to write in markdown and have it synced to Evernote. You can use any text editor to write markdown on your local machine (Atom, Sublime Text, Visual Studio, Notepad), save it into a linked Dropbox folder, and it will appear as a properly formatted note in Evernote within a few seconds. I also use the Jottings app on my iPhone to link to the same dropbox folder so that notes from my phone can also appear on my computer desktop and Evernote. Works great for me! If you have feedback, let me know. Thanks! Travis

    In the latest Evernote version there is now a warning about moving notes into a shared folder. As someone that moves notes to a shared folder constantly, the additional click in my workflow is annoying. There should be a way to suppress this warning. Either a field when creating the shared notebook, or possibly just a checkbox on the warning itself "Do not show this warning again." I'm fine with a warning, but just make sure the warning can be suppressed. Thanks!

    @TK0047 Thank you very much for your opinion. I spend about an hour this morning setting up a structure that I use in Evernote. I have to say it works quite O.K. I think it is more structure than Evernote, although that can be good or bad depend on how you like to organize thing. The downside is it is a little bit slower to load note than Evernote. You also can have only one type of item per line e.g. can't have Toggle To Do list, etc. Anyway, I think it is very promising.

    +1 Have you had any reply on this issue? It is a big step backwards, impacting my ability to review notes easily.

    We have relentless sharks in both the tag and notebook waters. My view is that a note has two attributes; Notebook and Tags. They're similar; any argument should be based on the features and limitations of each attribute. >>compelling argument, especially since tag organization cannot currently be viewed on all platforms. I'm using a Mac and the tag hierarchy is not even displayed on all the menus. Regardless, I still find it a useful tool to organize my tags (300+). Since I can't count on the hierarchy being available, I prefix my names so they sort together in alpha sequence; for example colour-red, colour-green, colour-blue >>tags being used not as an organizational tool, but a find feature in Evernote. "find feature" works for me; my use for the tools is to enable retrieval of my data. I know "organization" in itself is important to some people, but I have little interest. >>If You Fail to Tag a Note, Your Whole Organizational System Fails One of the biggest fears of new Evernote users is that their notes will “get lost” You could also say if you place a note in the wrong notebook, OMG Your Whole Organization System Fails, but thats just hyperbole; (exaggeration overstatement, magnification, amplification, embroidery ...) >>It’s Too Easy to Create New Tags I don't create new tags/notebooks on the fly. I have my standard list. >>You Need a Perfect Memory to Properly Utilize a Tag-Based System Like I have a perfect memory. Still, I manage to use my Notebook/Tag lists.

    I doubt that Evernote is looking to "stamp Bear in its tracks". Their stance seems to be "Hey, this is what Evernote is. We think it's cool and can help you keep digital information organized, and available across your devices." But since you brought it up, it's of note that Bear is only available for Apple devices, and not even for the web (yet), so they have a long way to go before they get to parity with Evernote on the availability front. If you're an all-Apple user, then it looks like it might be a good tool, but for the rest of us, it's as good as non-existent as an alternative to Evernote.

    We're working on it! Spaces are a pretty big architectural change (from both UX and technical perspectives), and work best for Teams - which is why we're launching for Business first. We're looking into bring Spaces to personal too - I'd love to have one for my family too.

    Has any one else recently experience this problem again. IOS was updated last night and I’m having the same issue as above. I’ve uninstalled, reinstalled I’ve rebooted and still the same.

    It seems to me that most of the people who have responded to this lenghty thread proposing workarounds do not understand the use case. The issue is not about searching through a large number of notes. It is about being able to ARCHIVE old information. Several people, including patricksan, understand the issue. We have clients, we take courses in universities, we work on projects--and when they're over, we don't need to see the information again except in rare circumstances. And if one is a consultant or does project work, chances are high that you have notes that are very similar, but which are unique to specific clients. An archive tag will not work (effectively) in those situations. I dont know the decision matrix that the Evernote people use to decide what features to build, but this thread has been going on for a year or two, and never once has anyone from the company interjected. Nor did the company respond to my emails.

    I would like to be able to pin notes to the IOS widget. Right now the widget displays the most recently edited note(s).

    Actually uninstall/reinstall the software has no impact on the database You can reindex the database using OptionKey Help>Troubleshooting You can resync your data using 1. Open Evernote for Mac 2. Hold the **Shift** and **Option** keys on your keyboard and click the sync wheel (next to your username)

    Depends what device you're using - on a desktop it's quite easy to overfwrite the created date: just click the " i " icon, click the created date line, and use the calendar date (and time) picker to set the date you prefer. It is easy, but it's several clicks and a bit of effort to wind the calendar back to my chosen period - and it will default back to the current date for my next record. Hundreds of documents will take a long time. Your other (and much quicker) choices are to use tags, titles or embedded keywords, or to rely on Evernote's OCR and search functions and make sure the key date(s) are shown clearly on the front of each document in such a way that they stand out from any other date information. You could get a stamp or print some labels with your initials or a unique keyword, and write the date verfy clearly on the same spot. A search for DW and 20160103 should find the document labelled with that date. I prefer titles - I use a text expander to give me dates, so I can set it up to generate dates within a close range and change them by hand where necessary. YMMV. If you find another way to do this, please share!

    Hi All, I too am very frustrated with this new *feature* and decided to find a work around until Evernote give us the option to disable this feature (although I suspect that they have introduced it to gather statistics so may never will). However, if like me you use Google Chrome this works quite well: Install a Google Chrome extension called TamperMonkey (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tampermonkey/dhdgffkkebhmkfjojejmpbldmpobfkfo/related) Open up the TamperMonkey settings (Left click on the new icon shown top right in chrome) Create a new script and past in the code shown below (copy paste everything in blue) The TamperMonkey extension allows us to inject and run our own Javascript on page load. The @inlcude bit in the script below tells TamperMonkey to only run this script on any pages that have a URL that starts with https://www.evernote.com/OutboundRedirect.action. The script then grabs the target destination (i.e. the link we want to show) and tells the browser to immediately redirect there (bypassing the need to press evernotes continue button). // ==UserScript== // @name Evernote Outbound Clicker // @namespace http://harristribe.co.uk/ // @version 1.0 // @description Avoids the evernote outbound page // @author Rob Harris // @include https://www.evernote.com/OutboundRedirect.action* // @grant none // @run-at document-start // ==/UserScript== (function() { 'use strict'; var urlParams = new URLSearchParams(window.location.search); window.location.href = urlParams.get('dest'); })(); Hope that helps Rob

    I'd like to see a feature I would use a lot o my touchscreen laptop: being able to scroll using the flick of a finger. Now, when I flick with the finger, it highlights the text so I have to use the trackpad instead... Evernote Touch would be wonderful... however, at this moment, that app doesnt support hi-res screens, therefore the font is very tiny.

    You can Undo in Evernote for Mac by using the Command + Z keyboard command or by navigating to Edit > Undo.

    WOW!!!! I decided to try Evernote after having abandoned the idea several years ago. Within 15 minutes of starting to use it I began to wonder how I can change the thumbnail image represented on notes -- because web clippings are pulling in BANNER ADS to append to the note thumbnails. Then I started reading all these threads about how people have been requesting this feature for several years and being ignored. I'm done with Evernote now for good -- after a single hour of playing around with it. Just thought I'd throw that in there. It typically doesn't take me long to reject apps based on completely stupid UI decisions -- and this is just another example. I'm beyond shocked that the whole point of Evernote is to organize your notes -- and it doesn't even let you choose a thumbnail image??? I am a UI developer who maintains a very large web app. One of the features of this app is the ability to scrape content such as articles from sites and pull it into our system. We give our users a left / right arrow to CHOOSE which image represents their content instead of doing all this hogwash to have a ROBOT try and figure out what the user wants. How about just let the USER choose what the USER wants to do? It is much simpler from a development standpoint AND makes the users happy too. We even let them CROP the damn images before they are imported into our system. I mean, this is standard fare, considering that's also how FACEBOOK works. How the imbiciles who threw this app together can't figure THAT out just shows me this app will get on my nerves even more if I tried to use it for a week.

    Howdy, I am new to Evernote and have found it really useful, particularly for things like keeping web clippings handy while putting together a new computer. There is one bit of functionality that I haven't yet quite figured out. I can't figure out how to manually add links. I can paste in the URL it will make a clickable link that will open that web page, but I cannot find a way to create an HTML style link. What I get is links that look like "http://discussion.evernote.com/" rather than what I want which is a link that looks like "Evernote Forum" and goes to that URL. I have used the web clipper stuff to paste in a few links but when I try to add to the list I am having some trouble. Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
