    Hi everyone, I lead Evernote's security team. I wanted to make you aware of a recent update to Evernote for Windows versions 6.4–6.7. All Evernote apps connect with our service over HTTPS, which ensures that the data you send between your devices and our service is encrypted. We recently discovered a security vulnerability in older versions of Evernote for Windows that caused affected clients to use HTTP when contacting certain portions of the Evernote Service. This means that if you used one of the vulnerable versions of our Windows client, our software was occasionally sending your authentication token across the Internet using HTTP without first encrypting it. To be clear, your note content, usernames, and passwords were, and continue to be, securely encrypted in transit. Your password is still safe, and you don’t need to change it. To protect customers, we have blocked access from older versions of Evernote for Windows and have done the same for a small number of third party applications. We have also revoked the authentication session tokens for anyone currently running a vulnerable version of our app. If you had previously blocked upgrades beyond version 6.7, we are providing a hotfix that you can download here: https://cdn1.evernote.com/win6/public/Evernote_6.7.6.7584.exe We strongly encourage all customers to update to the latest version of Evernote for Windows. As an additional precaution, you should log out and back in to refresh your authentication token. We have already notified customers that were affected by this directly via email.

    By the power vested in me as a bona fide "Super Guru" per the forum status indicator, I do hereby bequeath to you a sufficient time allocation to make this change. You're welcome.

    I just got an email that is about this evernote announcement: I am using version 6.5.4 precisely because it is more secure for work. After that version, features are missing or a broken, bugs on every corner. Evernote, are you really forcing us to update to new versions that are still not stable? Really?

    Same problem as everyone. I wrote to their security person Rich Tener who send the email notification and still no reply. Great. What the hell Evernote? At least give us option to stay with older version that is still working. All new versions are bug ridden with missing not only features but even UI elements. This is terrible.

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

    With Evernote spaces coming out, I was excited to see the new improvements for team and collaboration. We tried using Evernote as a team and business but was limited in functionality and features. We decided to give Evernote Spaces a try. But, soon became disappointed. I compared our experience with Evernote Spaces with other apps mainly Dropbox Paper and Asana. It was my hope to see some new features to keep everything in one place, collaborate and work in team digital setting but this update is severely lacking what is required ina collaboration app in 2018. Features missing from Evernote Spaces 1- Note Comments / Note Chat Being able to have comments and conversations within a document is really the industry standard with collaboration apps. Evernote spaces looks cool but the functionality within a note hasn’t really changed at all. You can’t comment on text within a note, or add text at the same time without conflicts and no way to see who’s editing what. How on earth am I suppose to collaborate with people without these basic features??? Even trying to use WorkChat seems backwords, no integration or functionality between Spaces and WorkChat, just segregated and kindof useless. It’s frustration trying to go back and forth between WorkChat that really make it inconvenient to use. It’s just boggling that app developers and people at Evernote would over look such obvious features that a lot of apps have. 2- Assigned ToDos / Due Dates & a Centralized place see all the todos ! Wouldnt it be cool to be able to tag people within a note, assign tasks to people and set up due dates? Asana and Dropbox do this well (and there free!) what if you could see everything in one place. See all my todo’s and reminders in a central place. But Evernote Spaces there’s no way to see all todos from notes shared. Is it me or isn’t it hard to keep track of everything and trying to “remember everything” when you can’t see all todos in one place. Asana does this in great fashion you can tag people, see what all my assigned ToDos are and even see my team mates due dates! Evernote you basically have no idea where ToDos are, who has what tasks or anything. 3- Real Time Collaboration and History Tracking It would be a lot easier if Evernote spaces would have the ability to show my team members changes within a document when editing a documents/notes. How would I have multiple people working within a document and not have the ability to see the changes? (theres no revision history or tracking). When changes are made in Evernote Spaces, it just shows up as “What’s new” but I’m not able to do any real collaboration within a note with a team. Again other collaboration apps have these features and they are free ... How do you expect for me to justify paying for a tool for a team of 15 people at $15 a head to not have basic feature sets for REAL collaboration? I just don’t get it. Dropbox Paper is everything I wish Evernote Spaces should be in a collaboration space. Asana is the best I’ve found for project management and team work. Wouldn’t it be great if Evernote had those features all in one ? Evernote I just don’t get the disconnect... I just don’t understand why a lot of features were overlooked. I sometimes wished I worked for Evernote I would be able to bring some common sense and innovative features. It’s unfortunate because I want to see Evernote do well and have more of my team on the platform, people but I sometimes feel Evernote team misses what people are really looking for in a tool to brings everything 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.

    Reposting this to answer everyone's questions. Evernote Team blocked Evernote versions older than 6.7.6 due to a security flaw they found. They are refusing to create patches for older versions. I'm pissed because the newer versions beyond 6.5.4 have wide GIANT ASS margins on the sides. My employees use small monitors mounted to the wall, and I have spacing constraints. The margins reserved for tables make no sense. The devs could have made a floating table toolbar instead. Anyways. They state that they are only supporting 6.7.6 and higher due to this security flaw. However, the patch they released for 6.7.6 is broken. So, you'll have to upgrade to 6.8.7. When they fix 6.7.6, then you can jump to that.

    Well, I found it. It's a tiny, little icon that looks appropriately like a notebook with the words "USERIDnotebook" in the upper-left area of the note. And it is still easier to move a note in the web client. However, it now takes 3 clicks and a lot of scrolling. And you can't collapse any of the notebooks in the Find a notebook list. But maybe that's not a good idea unless you have a lot of notebooks.

    Macs allow us to set keyboard shortcuts to any combination. If you're not happy with "⌘ [ and ⌥ ⌘ {", change it to a different combination.

    I has this problem since 8.0 and reinstall didn't resolve. I had to go back to 7.17.7 from a file dowload on the apkmirror.com site.

    Hi there, been a while since you posted this, but just in case... I also found Tag limitations, and with other's testing, I now use this fix... My wife, who I share Notebooks and Notes with, can only create new Notes and Tag them with MY Tags, if the Tags are already used in that Notebook. So I have in each shared Notebook a Note called Master, and that Note, while empty, has every Tag I have tagged on it. Now because it is part of the Notes I share with my wife, she can use any of my Tags. However, there is a limit if 100 Tags per Note, and I have more than that. Fix? Master 1 and a Master 2 Note in each Notebook. Master 1 has Tags from the first 13 letters of the alphabet, Master 2 has the last 13. Whenever I add a new Tag (and yes, I have to keep this in the back of my mind all the time) I select all the Master 1 or 2 Notes, depending on the first letter of the Tag, then collectively Tag those Notes with the new Tag. Hard to find those Master Notes all the time? No... because I changed their Creation Date to 01/01/1900 so they always show at the bottom of my list of Notes. Now every single Tag I have is on one of two Notes in every Notebook I share with my wife, and she can now email anything she wishes to my account, with the appropriate @notebook and #tag names in the Subject line, and it works! It would be so much easier if Evernote just removed the Tag limits on a Note, but this fix works. Hope it helps you too.

    I don't understand. Evernote sent me an email which said I was safe: "We have fixed the issue and see that you have already updated to a safe version of Evernote Windows."

    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

    Go to Settings. On the Account Summary page, look for "Evernote Web'. You should have the option to change to the "current version" or the "beta version".

    This is why though I keep Evernote around as an archive, I am no longer a paying customer. Something so basic, yet fonts have been ignored for years.

    Was adding to an older note (on my MBP) using EN 7.03 Had highlighted all the text, and was looking for the right way to set the line spacing uniformly - clicked on what looked like a line space option, but that was an actual line - so the entire page disappeared and all I had was a single line across the document. Did command-Z right away, nothing happened! Note gone. WTF!!!! I quickly picked up my phone, switched it to airplane mode, and copy-pasted the destroyed note into a new note - but all the edits I'd made on the laptop were gone. This is sh*t functionality - anything should be able to be undone.

    I would love the ability to create custom keyboard shortcuts -- not only for the existing commands, but as a shortcut for "assign a (specific) tag" and "move to a (specific) notebook." For example, Ctrl+Alt+F would move the selected note to my "Filed" notebook -- that kind of thing. On a related note, who decided that the shortcut for assign tag (Ctrl+Alt+T) would have different modifiers from assign notebook (Shift+Alt+M). These activities are part of the same workflow -- the modifiers should be the same. (Imagine if Copy and Paste were Ctrl+C and Shift+Alt+V -- it's cognitively jarring.) g.

    Nearly full agree. EN is my favourite workflow tool and managing simple text notes is the base of all. But the text editor is getting worse with every new version: Ctrl-Shift-V (paste plane text) stopped retaining URLs In former versions it was a pretty fine feature to retain URLs during paste of texts from browsers or Outlook whereas other formatting was removed. Now Ctrl-Shift-V pastes unformatted text (good) but removes URLs (very bad) Why not offering a setting to control strict vs. smart "Paste Plane Text"? Display embedded PDFs was simple and completely sufficient Now scrolling though notes stops when a PDF comes in sight. Scrolling "jumps" to the PDF which is scrolled till end before my text (outside PDF) continues scrolling... Maybe a nice feature for somebody - but confuses me. Seeing the first page of my PDFs is enough. If I want to see more, it was possible to simply click to PageUp and -Down icons or double click on the PDF to execute a foreign viewer... Now I have to RClick->Open (hard to find vs. a simple DClick) or view (all) PDFs as attachments to avoid stupid scrolling Viewing PDFs als attachments is a bad choice because this avoids the small preview when using Ctrl-F5 ord Ctrl-F6 modes of note listings Why not offering a setting to enable the new PDF "features" vs. using the good old style? Handling of embedded PDFs (viewed as attachments) in bulletted lists If you have some embedded files continously added in one line in a bulletted list, try the following: move the cursor between the files type <RETURN> You will find a new bullet in the next line but the file just behind the cursor did not move to the new bullet If you insert a <SPACE> just before an embedded PDF, position the cursor before the <SPACE> and type <RETURN> the PDF moves to the new bullet line (but you have to remove the <SPACE> in front of it - stupid) I think, this is a bug of the new PDF handling technique - but Why not offering a setting to enable the new PDF "features" vs. using the good old style? 😉 Smaller font in left pane ... is OK for me because I can see some more notebooks and tags on my screen 😉 But new big "New Note" seems to be a bad idea of a marketing guy... We all had a Toolbar icon "New Note"... Why not offering settings to define fonts in app sections and show/remove stupid new buttons?

    Unfortunately, the optimize database trick is only a stopgap. In the first place, I have to do it at least once a week and it takes 3-4 hours. Second, program still hangs, but not during sync as often. Just Not Responding for no apparent reason. Been waiting 5 minutes after cutting and pasting some text into a note. I think I'm going to have to take a hard look at OneNote and Nimbus. This is getting unmanageable.

    Hello folks, I have long waited to create tables in my notes (just like on the Windows app). Another big update in iOS version of Evernote and we still do not have this useful tool! OneNote has it and its wonderful. I love Evernote and I hope to be able to organize my notes even more with tables one day By the way, the new app is shining beautiful!
