    Ahem. Re-reading this, I realize that the last clause should have been less, um, global: "they don't actually know anything about whether Evernote is at any kind of risk." They know all kinds of stuff that, you know, actually exists.

    The initial post is IMHO just BS ... Currently companies that offer solutions for digital remote work (like EN) are thriving, not suffering. Everybody who can work from there is at home, everybody working from home needs access to documents and workflows, and server / cloud based solutions like EN Business are made for remote digital group work. If EN would not be privately help, it would be one of the winners at the exchange.

    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.

    @gazumped, @Dave-in-Decatur thanks a lot for the feedback -- I've been trying to move from Windows to Linux for a while and the lack of an Evernote native app has been one of my major stumbling blocks, but I have to say I've been positively surprised by Evernote Web. Looking forward to the native app that Small promised some time ago!

    AppCleaner is an app, made to clean other apps from a Mac. It is free, and gives you more control over what to erase and what to keep. In some cases you want to keep something, for example settings to make a reinstall easier. In the case of EN, it is important to really clean every piece of software from the Mac, because this is often the cause for continued crashes. The standard trash bin procedure will sometimes not remove this residue, which leads to more crashes even after an uninstall. Checking all positions in AppCleaner will as well remove the data base, so if it has developed problems, they will be removed as well. You can download it for free, for example here: https://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/ The last weird bit that maybe got stuck somewhere is cleaned out by restarting the Mac after the cleaning.

    Some background. That happened when we upgraded from CEF 1 to CEF 3. (Chromium Embedded Framework) So "some goofball" is Google.

    Agreed. I did that with Evernote five years ago and loved it ever since. I've tested out OneNote, and Notion, but find that Evernote is the one that fits me the best.

    I really love the new web beta editor, and really look forward to these features (and uniformity) rolls out the Mac and iOS apps. As much as I like using the Web client now, the difficulty moving notes into notebooks makes it nearly impossible to avoid going to the other apps. Can we get a quick search or filter box on the "Move To" that allows you to find notebooks... or at least show the notebooks in their stacks, rather than a long alphabetical list of all notebooks... P.S. - Also really need ability to edit reminder dates.

    Never heared about a discounted program for this type of use. But we can ask .... @Shane D. Hello Shane, could you give it a look ?

    PinkElephant, yeah, you are right. You *have* to sync after posting each image just in case. Images don't disappear all the time, but if you can't trust it, well you basically have to sync every single time. It's a fairly important bug if you ask me, especially if you come back later to discover your work is gone! (I use Evernote for bug testing at work, and my notes are filled with pictures - dialog boxes I saw, etc) and oftentimes I can't get them back without reproducing all the how-to steps I was documenting, especially errors and bugs!

    Hey PinkElephant, I switched back to the older verison and that seems to have worked. I had no idea I was even using the newer/beta version, haven't been using Evernote for that long. Thank you both for your help!

    In addition to what @gazumped and @dconnet said, a little different take is that "All Notes" is always available in the left panel, even if the left panel is minimized. And the keyboard shortcut Shift+F6 always works as well.

    ...what @PinkElephant said; plus - worst case, try exporting half your notes. If that works, do half the rest - repeat as necessary. Whichever export fails contains your note error(s)... Try more halves (if necessary) to narrow that down.

    If you just clip yes. But, per @gazumped's post, if you hold the Ctrl key while selecting the clip the clip is placed on the clipboard. You can then paste into the note.

    I notice that the beta web client changed from 6.6 to 6.7 on Chrome. But unlike most betas I have used over the years, there is no announcement, no list of changes.. It seems like the web beta isn't really being treated like a real beta release. Users seem to have little insight into how things are going with the "new" Evernote, what features are there and what aren't.

    Hi All, Since Evernote’s earliest days, the five clients (Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, and Web) have been evolving separately, tackling the challenges of software development in subtly different ways.In this installment of Evernote Behind the Scenes, CEO Ian Small talks to Mike, a senior member of the engineering team, about the work they’re doing to reunite the Evernote family. Ian and Mike discuss the fundamental changes they’re making to how Evernote communicates between client and cloud, and how they’re tackling the difficult task of making a single shared code library work across the five different apps.

    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?!

    It used to be very simple to drop-down the containing notebook and edit which notebook the note lives in. Now, the function has completed changed - it launches a search for all notes in that notebook. Why have this duplicity, when you can just access the notebook separately? It was more useful for me to be able to easily edit where a note "lives." Also, I notice that you've moved the note information (i) to a more obscure location. For a clipping tool, the source is relatively important, and shouldn't be demoted. There's not need to hide behind the three dots.

    All good, Jeff. Something like what you describe would be really good, and I think it's what these threads are requesting. And as someone said in a humor group, "When we make typos, the errorists win."

    I agree it’s table stakes for a notes app these days and could list half a dozen more. It’s on the way in Evernote too though; an integral part of the new web editor, that will be the basis of the editor in the upcoming desktop/mobile apps. The release sounds not too far off now! I’m hoping for early summer; have no insider info though.

    There is a setting in the installed desktop versions, but nothing in the web (yet). Previous versions of the web client defaulted to attachments rather than having an inline viewer, so maybe stepping back to one of those (in settings) would help?

    Thank you, Pink Elephant, for your help on how to scan directly to Evernote! I was able to upgrade the firmware of my ix500, download ScanSnapHome (allowing full disk access), and set up a profile to scan directly into Evernote, bypassing the Fujitsu cloud service.

    I heard that there's some program out there that can help you collect random bits of information like keyboard shortcuts, names of good beers, etc. so that you can find them easily. I wish I could remember the name of that program....

    Hi, this is a very good suggestion, in effect I should modify some tags names, but it can works. Thanks a lot!!!

    Confirmed, Evernote search does not support full Boolean search syntax This applies to all searches, not just tags There's a feature request posted at the link below. To indicate your support, use the vote button at the top left corner of the discussion

    This misses the point: in the Windows Evernote application, you can make the display size larger or smaller by clicking on an image, and using the resize tool that appears (the blue rectangle: the square in the lower right corner is draggable): No tables are required for this. However, @lisec wants the ability to make the image file size smaller, which in the Windows application (checks the forum, yep, Windows Requests) cannot be done without using an external tool. Using the tables trick does not solve this.

    On the Mac, one option would be XnConvert. It can do much more, but one workflow is to change pictures in their physical size and/or quality (file size). It is build to do batch jobs, so one can place a bunch of pictures into it, and get them processed in one go.
  34. 1 point
    Hmmn. Guess I got used to the way I do things - I tend to use XnView to resize pictures; My system default is to open JPG and PNG files in that app, and three key combinations will crop (if necessary) to a selected size set light levels automatically resize to 1080 / 680 / 340 wide and 96ppi (options are set for particular uses of mine) Saving the processed file puts the edited image back in the note. - I do that with most images I post from my phone, though it is possible to crop images there too. My desktop screen is just bigger and keyboard-convenient. Having said which - I guess if there were an Evernote option to save pics as Original or Optimised plus a crop tool, I'd use it...

    I wish they could share more about this. EN is getting harder and harder to use now with the awful tagging management in iOS, lack of ability to merge notes, etc. It’s pretty miserable. I wish I could find a viable alternative. I know that’s probably sacrilegious to say here, but it’s true.

    The backup advice is good. But deleting unused tags is a way different operation than repairing a database, I'd guess the former is pretty safe, but backup anyways, because we should be doing that anyways.

    Sir, You are a GENIUS! Solution: Scanner still has my.personal.scanner@gmail.com account. Scanner sends email to my.personal.scanner2@gmail.com email that I just created. my.personal.scanner2@gmail.com automatically forwards that email to username.xxx@m.evernote.com address. 💪 Previous: Scanner has my.personal.scanner@gmail.com account.

    Servers are hosted by Google ... And probably employees (especially those who have to focus on their work, like coders) work better at home than in an office cubicle (see „Dilbert“). The WebClipper problem is rooted in the need to support several browsers on several OS-platforms. As browsers evolve, the WebClipper dev has to keep up permanently. This will be an ongoing challenge. Summary: The question posted is among the least worries these days. Stay healthy ! Stay productive ! Care for others !

    Hi @Shane D., the auto resize feature is a really crucial one for professionals who work primarily with a lot of images in their day to day life. Why can't we have a shortcut for resizing images in Evernote yet? Example: Confluence by Atlassian does a great job with sizing images to certain standard formats which I would want @EverNote to adapt asap! They give you three standard options of small, medium and large size as you can see in the attached file. CC: @jefito, @gazumped, @lisec, @arose10, @DTLow What do you think?

    I am actually not talking about the URL in the "body" of the note, but in the "Note Details" URL field.

    I searched online extensively before posting (including posts in this forum). I can't seem to figure out how to hide the notes list that appears in between the shortcut/sidebar and the actual note body -- I can change the location or style of the list using the icon on the top right / immediately left of the actual note input body -- card view, expanded card view, snippet view, etc. but I can't actually find out how to hide this panel! I am using Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) and Evernote 5.5.1. A previous forum post here said OSX Lion had a 'hide favorites' option which hid this panel but I do not see this option on any menu items. It is very hard to use the software with the side panel always present because (a) it takes up 1/3rd of the window, ( I can't pull up notes with a work colleague sitting next to me because some private notes are displayed in the side panel (obviously, I could show a different folder of notes in the panel but it is too annoying to have to think about this every time), and © it is very distracting and actually hard to work when you see a huge list of notes in your peripheral vision that you can't get rid of unless you move the note you are working on into a separate window. Why is there not a simple show/hide panel widget icon? If there is, am I missing it? Please help.. great software but I can't use it like this!

    I wonder if anyone can help me; I've looked everywhere but I can't seem to find anything about this issue anywhere online! I use single quotation marks for quotations, as is standard in British English, but whenever a quote starts with the letters s, d, or t, the smart quote defaults the wrong way. I have to manually change them every time, and it's infuriating! Let me post an example straight from Evernote: So for example, ‘a quote’ doesn’t cause a problem but ’some quotes’ does. As you can see, the quotation mark before the word 'some' is the wrong way. This ONLY happens in Evernote, not in any other writing program. It doesn't happen if I use double quotation marks (so I guess it's not a problem for Americans?), and of course wouldn't be a problem if I turned smart quotes off, but I need them as I use my notes as the basis and starting point for my academic work, which requires properly formatted quotation marks. If anyone knows any way to fix this I would be incredibly grateful. It sounds silly, but it causes me hassle multiple times a day, sometimes dozens of times (I do a lot of quotation in my note taking) and if I can't work it out I'm going to have to stop using Evernote and find an alternative!

    i wanted to give evernote a "new" try. since years there exist no real import tool, so everynote does not want people to change from other bookmark services. this is so ridiculous stupid, that people have to write their own code to make this happen. i am now 2 minutes at evernote and: GOODBYE, AGAIN!

    Evernote doesn't support sorting of the text within a note (alphabetically) and I think this would be a great feature to have. I have several lists of this and that, and after a while it becomes hard for me to find what I want. I prefer my lists to be alphabetically ordered. I have seen several requests for this feature, but invariably this feature is misunderstood with the sorting of notebooks or notes. It is neither of these things; these features are already present in Evernote. I did raise this with Evernote Support, but they just acknowledged my request and then closed the ticket couple of weeks later. Not sure what the status of my request is, or how to find out. Does anybody know whether this feature is likely to be added, or otherwise, and if not, are there any good workarounds I could try (other than copying and pasting to and from a text editor, which is very time consuming). Thanks Howard

    I just fired up Evernote after almost 2 years of inactivity. I just got a Samsung Tablet S3 and I love the pen. I would consider upgrading to Premium if Evernote supported the s-pen using the Samsung Android SDK. This would reduce the lag greatly and probably offer more features. http://developer.samsung.com/galaxy/pen

    Wrong, this IS a bug. The note WAS sync'd, numerous times during our meeting. I came out of the meeting with my iPad, and pulled up the notes on my Mac. This is a daily routine for me. Walked to another office with my iPhone to pull up the notes; when I did, I saw the old version of my Meeting Notes document, from several weeks (if not MONTHS) before. Kept waiting for it to update but it never did - then I went back to my Mac & saw that the new note was gone, replaced by the (very) old one. Grabbed my iPad, saw today's notes, sync'd it - bam, notes gone. I agree, the one on the server SHOULD be the one to reference. This did not happen with my iPhone - instead it uploaded a very old note & overwrote everything I had - it didn't even place anything in Conflicting Changes, which I would have expecting having the same note open on more than one device.
