    Hey All, There are so many things you can put in a new note, it’s hard to know where to begin. We’re working to change that. In this installment of Evernote Behind the Scenes, CEO Ian Small chats with Aiden, a product design manager, about upcoming changes to the all-important “New Note” button. This small adjustment will make note creation more consistent and intuitive across mobile platforms. Subscribe to our channel to follow the journey, and join the conversation on the Evernote Forum!

    This was a great video! Nice to see some of the changes happening there. I've stopped using Evernote consistently a while back but seeing what improvements are coming down the line really makes me excited about using it more.

    I've added an option in the next beta for configuring the split size: Default is 2000 mb (2 gb). To disable, set to 0. If the number is low (200 mb or less), there's a good chance that the split size will be larger than the give size since at least 1 note will be in the enex. Otherwise it will keep the enex file sizes below the size limit. This is to fix systems file systems that don't support large files (you'd be surprised how many users are restricted to 2 gb limits) and systems with low memory (or 32 bit OS limits) that can not load and parse such large files. The 200 mb note size limit is still in place and has not been affected. Ideally anything that is exported should be re-imported without error. 😃 The import process does not automatically add the next file in the sequence. If there is a naming conflict, a confirmation dialog will ask if you want to overwrite the file(s).

    You're welcome. Along those lines, here's a simple backup .bat file I use to back up all of my notebooks:to separate .enex archives. @echo off set enbackup=C:\Archives\Evernote\SimpleBackup set notelist=Notebooks.txt set enscript="c:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\ENScript.exe" echo Backing up Evernote notebooks to %enbackup% if not exist %enbackup% md %enbackup% %enscript% listNotebooks >%notelist% rem del /q %enbackup%\*.enex if exist %enbackup%\*.enex (del /q %enbackup%\*.enex) for /F "delims=" %%a in (%notelist%) do (echo %%a... & %enscript% exportnotes /q "notebook:\"%%a\"" /f "%enbackup%\%%a.enex") dir "%enbackup%\*.enex" set enbackup= set notelist= set enscript= You can set the enbackup variable to a directory of your choosing, o just use . to put them in your current directory Edit: also note the explicit pathing to the ENScript.exe program. That may differ from yoru own installation.

    It takes at least 1 minute for the app to respond when opening any note on my Android phone. It takes same time for the app to react when push the create new note button. I reinstalled the app. The problem vanished. After an hour or so, the lags started again.

    Try double-quoting the notebook name using the '\' character. e.g.: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\enscript.exe" exportNotes /q notebook:"\"z - 000\"" /f C:\000\aaaa2.enex

    More specifically, Windows dark mode doesn't support the old Win32 style apps, which is what 99% of apps on Windows are. It only supports the UWP, PWA style apps. Evernote could roll their own, but instead of it being a single Dark Mode experience for users, users would have to manually configure each Win32 app, and Evernote (and other dev's) would have to come up with a UI to modify, and support multiple DPI modes, video drivers, etc. It gets to be a mess. I can be done of course, but Windows makes it really really difficult and tedious to do. And I don't think all Store apps can be supported either. There is an Evernote in the store, but it is a Win32 app written with a wrapper so it can be downloaded from the store. I'm not defending Evernote, or Windows. It is just a huge mess. Which is to be expected with an OS that has its roots in the mid-90's.

    I've watched a few of the videos in this series, and regardless of the content I really enjoy the style. To me it's a refreshing change from many of the product videos I watch with regard to my profession.

    The changes will be for both Android and iOS. I'm not familiar with exact launch dates and it's quite possible we'll stagger the initial release of the new clients for Android vs. iOS, but ultimately, changes will be consistent for both operating systems.

    In his Search for the Truth; for his Diligent Detective Skills; and for Demonstrating Incredible & Selfless Bravery Under Fire, I award the 'You are Da Man' medal of honour at Identifying the 'True Culprit' of the Issue to @PinkElephant Close runner-ups, honorable mentions, and much much thanks must also be given to @gazumped, @jefito, and @CalS cheers 😉 The Culprit and Real Cause was Not EN, at-least not on its own, but indeed was/is my WiFi ISP Network! PinkElephant 1st suggested it when I started my explorations on this forum, in this post Sync does not work properly Anyway, not much extra thought was given to his comments at the time, however an idea in the back of my mind had sprouted then, which lingered from that moment on, and that was, when I reset/unplugged the power chord from my router, night before everything went awry, the thing I did different was to leave the router disconnected/un-powered all night... where usually I just wait 5-min and reconnect. The idea or aha moment, came at the wee hours this morning, when I was forced to use a different internet browser to access EN Online Chat Support (due to message input box not rendering on Win-Chrome browser), combined with my really dedicated EN-Tech-Support guy Nic, who had also spent hours helping me try to resolve, where he also suggested looking at my ISP as a troubleshooting item (see our email-screencaps attached). Nic at Tech Support really restored my faith in EN Support, was just an unbearable journey to get someone dedicated to the case. I mean they make EN so damn sticky and central to what we do, what do they expect...lol The temporary workaround solution, and suggested trouble shooting step I'd recommend to anyone with a similar issue, was/is to disconnect my PC, from my normal day-to-day router/WiFi/ISP, and instead connect to a different WiFi Network. In my case, my 4G Android Phone via a Mobile HotSpot. Result = I can now sync Large Attached files such as 100 MB Videos, large images etc... and fortunately my Mobile Phone WiFi has good speed and good data/bandwidth allocation. I'm not a Techy but when I look at sections of @enjoybangkok activity log, compared to my own, I notice similarities, see comparisons below, so perhaps he should also try the same. HIS EN ACTIVITY LOG 12:02:19 [ERROR ] [5876] [3800] 0% Can't send HTTP request, error: INTERNET_CONNECTION_RESET 12:02:19 [INFO ] [5876] [4384] Client synchronization finished, status: failed 12:02:19 [ERROR ] [5876] [4384] * error: Could not connect to Evernote server 12:02:19 [INFO ] [5876] [4384] * elapsed time: 1m 20s MY EN ACTIVITY LOG 11:17:58 [ERROR ] [8088] [2128] 0% Can't send HTTP request, error: INTERNET_TIMEOUT 11:17:58 [INFO ] [8088] [2104] Client synchronization finished, status: failed 11:17:58 [ERROR ] [8088] [2104] * error: Could not connect to Evernote server 11:17:58 [INFO ] [8088] [2104] * elapsed time: 2m 28s Unfortunately, and after half-a-day on the phone to my ISP Support today... no amount of factory resetting the router, changing channels or running Ping/Netstat/Trace Route Tests etc to Evernote.com, have identified or fixed the networking WiFi issue. So I am forced to wait a further few days for them to escalate it until they do 'aye karumba'. Will advise once i know more...cheers again

    You can select multiple notes in the Android application. It's not obvious, but if you long-press on a note in the note list, it switches to a view where you can select/deselect notes, and then use a menu to perform certain operations, tag and duplicate, to name a couple. No merge or mass delete at this time though, as far as I can tell.

    More explicit about what can be done = good, use of more of the limited screen space = not so good. UI is often a balance that way. And it's often assumed that UI is less work than the underlying machinations required to get the job done, but it's often really not. Getting it "right" is not an objective process, hence the requirement for user feedback loops. . You need to offer enough access to what the user wants to do without overwhelming them with options or extraneous information. There's a real art that can go into a seemingly simple button.

    For iOS it looks like a nice improvement. At the moment, only 3 options show, only on a long / 3D Touch press, and sometimes you hide part of them with your hand. Looks good to me ! As told there is more to expect on the mobile clients. My favorite would be to be able to pick more than only one note at a time (maybe under the condition to have them downloaded as "offline" before), and do cool stuff like on the desktop clients: joining notes together into one tagging several of them in one go move them as a group to their target notebook etc. This would be a real time saver !

    And the winner is... Can't see any difference between the latest Backupery back up and one last month - I have one extra file (went crazy - started a new notebook) in 7 Folders (my stacks) - interestingly I didn't realise I had that many notebooks (98, apparently) until now. Ironically 98% of my notes are still in one default notebook - the rest are shared / local / WIP / and me being lazy. Anyway. Initial mild panic over - I still seem to have my regular backup in place. Thanks Backupery and Evernote! (And everyone else for comments :)

    As an author myself who is a bit OCD in the way my stuff is organized I just wanted to make a suggestion. I use Scrivener for my writing and Evernote for my research. A cool thing about Scrivener is that you can import the public link for a note into the app by using the Import Web Page function. It's the best workflow that I have personally found. Each app has its strengths and I am a big fan of both, neither one can handle my obsessive structure by itself. I found that together it is a match made in heaven.

    This is not an issue with Face ID, and is is no bug. EN works like this on devices with touch ID as well. Once the device itself is unlocked, EN is open for use until the device is locked, or locks itself (timeout). For iOS apps, this is the standard behavior. I have few apps that expect an authorization every time I open or come back to them. These are banking apps, my password manager, authentication apps etc. I would not like to have Evernote restricted like this, because it is a work environment. Remember, there are many devices running iOS without Face ID. If you want to make access more restricted for your usecase, you can set a passcode in settings of the iOS EN app, and define that it is needed every time you (re-)open the app.

    Well, no one replied, but I sort of solved it, by (again) reinstalling evernote, but with a twist: this time I changed the system language (from hebrew) to english first. Donno if that's relevant, I thought to try that because the system language is what makes my system relatively special. Anyway now it works, for the first time in months. Just my 2 cents.

    OK!!! I did some testing; apparently with the split screen active on the on-screen keyboard, the text will not scroll. Merge and dock the keyboard and both the on-screen and BT connected keyboard work just fine. Solved!

    Well, decided to try the export again. This time I got 9 files versus the 106 the first time, a marked improvement. Target file size seemed to be 2 GB. Based upon @gazumped above at 1 GB and my first experience at 160 MB, it begs the question if some parameter is getting diddled somewhere or is it a random act of violence as to the target file size for each export file? IAC, the previous mentioned option to decide if a single fie is okay would be appreciated.

    Just done this. Back to normal (fast) note access again. I've also blocked updating. Thanks for the advice. P.S. I've also bookmarked the URL to the page: https://androidapksfree.com/evernote/com-evernote/. This is the third serious problem I've had with Evernote, and for which I've had to go back to a previous version.

    Ran a further test on my biggest database - my default notebook is one 23GB file when backed up by Backupery, but 20-odd 1GB files when exported directly.

    I do this too. Over the years I've had links occasionally break for reasons that I've never figured out. As long as I keep the link the same as the note title, it is easy to just search for it and then recreate the link. This used to bother me, but now if I find a broken link, I just do a search on the note title, recreate the link and move on.

    Just a little bit of clarity on the IP from the US: The 35.199.x.x IP address is allocated to Google Cloud where Evernote hosts our infrastructure. What you are seeing is a piece of normal communication with one of our systems which is currently being misreported as an account access. We are aware of the issue and are working internally to resolve the bug.

    @HighUser Thanks for reaching out, and @jefito, thanks for trying to help! We actually had a small glitch on the support site that was blocking users from being able to make a selection from the dropdown menus, or the support site would appear blank. We believe we've fixed this issue, so you should now be able to successfully open a support ticket. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you need any further assistance!

    And for your own peace of mind, do activate 2-factor-authentication. If there is an attempt to enter your account, you will get immediate notification of this on your 2FA-device, typically your smartphone. And beside this, the attempt will fail because one needs the additional code visible only to you on your smartie. Hint: In all recent cases, it was never the EN account from which the credentials were taken. They always came from other sources.

    In iOS I can pick more than one note as well, following basic iOS logic: Put one finger on one note and hold it, tap with another one at other notes. They group nicely together, count going up, and then ... nothing. There is nothing you can do with this group, and as soon as you lift the first finger, it will fall apart again. So it is like getting a kiss from your sister/brother: Nice, but leading nowhere.

    Hey everyone, Thanks for all the reports. We've been notified on all our communication channels about the delayed note load times and freezing after our 8.10 update. Our development team is aware and currently working diligently on a resolution. I know this issue is quiet frustrating and affects pretty much any workflow. We definitely understand the pain you all are experiencing currently as this issue is our top priority and we hope to have a fix for this soon.

    Hi all, We were recently advised by LinkedIn that they are making changes to their infrastructure. Unfortunately, this means that after June 30, 2019, third-party apps like Evernote and Scannable will no longer have any access to LinkedIn data. What does this mean? Any LinkedIn profile information you’ve already added to a note will remain. But you won’t be able to see a LinkedIn user’s details, or connect with them, when you scan a new business card in Evernote. You’ll also lose the ability to add content from your own LinkedIn profile to your Evernote account, or see LinkedIn information using our Context feature. What will happen? Within the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out updates for iOS and Android that will remove the LinkedIn connection. You don’t need to take any specific action other than keeping your app up to date. Mac and Windows updates should be available by mid-July. If you haven’t updated your mobile app by June 30 (or if you’re using a desktop app) you’ll still see the option to connect to LinkedIn when you scan a business card, but nothing will happen. Despite these changes, we want to be clear about one thing: business card scanning is not going away. You’ll still be able to: Take a picture of a business card and save it in Evernote Add the person to contacts on your mobile device Email your own info to the person Find the business card later using Evernote’s text recognition feature The LinkedIn integration was an awesome feature and we’re sorry to see it go. But we’re still committed to helping you work smarter and keep your life organized. If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to me directly!

    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!

    Poked around with this. Found one way to do it, but also some inconsistency. First I made a note link shortcut on my Windows desktop, of the kind you're showing.(evernote://view/...). Click on it, and it opens the note in the main window. Second. I keep a Desktop toolbar on my taskbar. Click on the two >> and it brings up the list of all the things on my Windows desktop, really handy since I always have my desktop covered with open windows: I found that if I Shift+Click on the link in the Desktop list, the note opens up in a separate window (same as in the Evernote application). So that's a way that works. However, if I Shift+Click on the note link that's on the actual desktop, nothing happens. Indeed, Shift+Click doesn't seem to be recognized anywhere on the Desktop, even though it is in the Toolbar list. That's the inconsistency.

    Sadly, I'm seeing a lot of sync issues between working on ios and windows desktop application. I get notes coming back, titles reverting back to "untitled" and more. Usually the tags stay put, but I can't confirm that as I'm usually just frustrated at the point of having notes re-appear in my inbox after already dealing with them and filing/tagging/titling them. I've seen this across various versions of both Windows and iOS too. Reported in the past too.

    Notebook is not lost if you export by Notebook. Notebook links are lost for local notes, not so much synced notes. I have made it a habit to have the link be the same as the note title. Then if a link is broken I can simply find it via a search.

    As far as I know, Evernote does not do any text orientation except for horizontal. Note that the CSS "direction" described on the page you linked to doesn't do vertically oriented text; though the CSS "text-orientation" property (and others) may be able to do what you want: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/text-orientation. If you can hack a .enex file with the appropriate CSS and then import it into Evernote, that may work for you.

    Good news on the tech blog. There was a lot of interest and we have some people working on posts. I don't have a specific timeframe, but we should be able to revive it and post new content soon. I'll make sure we post to the discussion forum when we publish the new articles.

    OK Evernote seriously - this bug was reported here on may 21st, acknowledged by staff on May 22, and no word since. That's acceptable for free software but not for the industry-leading subscription product. I am following the lead of others who have found that an originally happy-making solution has steadily migrated to something more problematic, and ending my (premium) subscription, I have exported my content to Apple Notes. Bye.

    Dear Evernote iOS development team, Please include nested tags / hierarchy into the iOS version! I finally made the move to become a premium user after discovering the the usefulness of tag nesting / hierarchy in organising notes on the Mac Evernote. Just about to port all my notes into evernote, then I realised the iOS version can't see the nested / heirarchy structure !! aagh and I've just paid for a whole year subscription ...bummer~ I understand there are tonnes of requests out there, but this seems to be a crucial notes organisation feature to be considered for inclusion? Please add this feature in line with the desktop apps please? My setup: Mac Evernote (on iMac) - for work at home iOS 8 Evernote (on iPad + keyboard) - for taking notes during work and conferences.

    Hi there, I use EN a lot, and one of the most frustrating things that I struggle with every day is the possibility to embed videos in a note. I know, you can add a video as an attachment and play it with the external player, but it's not the same thing. A very common use case is when you're comparing two videos next to each other. Currently, I have to convert the video into a gif and then and I can put them next to each other in a table, and it works perfectly. The problem is that gifs take much more space than videos AND I need to convert them manually every single time. The other problem of videos is that if you have dozens in the same note, as it often happens when you work in video analysis, it is impossible to know which one to open without a thumbnail or a preview. If implementing an embedded video player in EN is too complicated, would it be possible, at least, to show the video preview as a thumbnail? Thank you

    Using AppleScript to Process Tags in EN Mac Continuing the discussion from: @DTLow, I started with your idea and one-line script, and did some testing to determine how to best get all child tags of a parent tag. Here's what I found: Your simple script worked, but it took ~10 sec to run with my 1500+ tags. So, after some experimentation, I came up with this approach, which takes on ~0.24 sec: AppleScript to Get List of Child Tags property ptyScriptName : "Get List of Child Tags for a Parent Tag" property ptyScriptVer : "2.0" property ptyScriptDate : "2018-07-11" property ptyScriptAuthor : "JMichaelTX" tell application "Evernote" ### This Takes about 10 sec for 1500 Tags ### (* set parentTag to tag ".NB.IT" set childTagList to name of every tag whose parent is equal to parentTag *) ### This Takes about 0.24 sec ### set parTagName to ".NB.IT" set tagNameList to name of every tag set parNameList to name of parent of every tag set childTagList to {} repeat with iTag from 1 to (count of tagNameList) set tagName to item iTag of tagNameList set parName to item iTag of parNameList if (parName = parTagName) then set end of childTagList to tagName end if end repeat end tell return childTagList -->{"SOFTWARE", "IT_List", "Electronics", "IT"} Thanks for sharing your complete script to get the list, and to do a recursive process to get all lower child tags. I'll take a look at that and see if it also can be optimized. So that would give us a list of Notes that were assigned any of the child tags. Unfortunately it would not allow any other Search criteria (like dates, inTitle, other tags), which the EN Win search will allow.
