    I've only played with it a short time, but using the web beta on my iPad - including a mouse! - works pretty well. The mouse (it works with a trackpad too) makes a big difference in editing text. Things like selecting text are much easier than using your fingers. I'm sure there will be gotchas, but at first glance it is pretty good.

    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. Scanner sends email to username.xxx@m.evernote.com address. 🤬

    Finally figured this one out. In a PDF within a note, click on the header bar (the gray stripe at the top), then on the 3 dots, to get a choice of Download, View as Attachment, and Page-through Preview or Full Preview. For me, View as Attachment is especially welcome. Thanks again for noticing this.

    A quick web search for tool to advise when a web page changes returns this 14 BEST tools for Website Change Detection & Monitoring (2020) and 5 Best Free Tools to Monitor Website Changes (2019). I did not dive any deeper. Maybe you could roll your own for this feature. Not to be a wet blanket, but doubtful this is going to find it onto EN's priority list. FWIW.

    It is the quickest way to create a note with URL meta info and note title automatically filled by EN + have the website link placed as note content, if you don't want to use an external extension like Evernote Web Clipper. Depending on, where you drop it, the linked website note also gets tags assigned automatically. E.g. you could have tag "todo" pre-selected in EN and drop a link right into this note list, which appends "todo" as a tag.

    As a student of Business Economics, it is necessary many times to write on my notes mathematical symbols and equations; it is not available now, however, wouldn't it be a great feature?

    Staff occasionally look in, but this is primarily a user-to-user forum. @PinkElephant's point, I believe, is that when creating the new notebook in the Web client, you may have accidentally logged in with a different email address, which would very quickly and easily (unfortunately) create a new account. So yes, it would be a completely new account, and that's where the notes you created at that time would be. Depending on what email and password you used to create it, it might not be obvious how to get back to this account. You may need to try every email address and password you might have used--being careful not to create yet another new account! You can go to https://help.evernote.com/hc/requests/new to create a support request. I'm not sure what options will be available to you on a Basic account. If the notes are important enough, it may be worth signing up for Premium for just one month so that you can get full access to support and they can hopefully straighten this out. At the end of the month, you can simply drop back to Basic.

    I just wanted to point out to someone an issue that has recently come up between Evernote and my AdBlock plugin for Chrome. This only started happening a few days ago, but my notes were coming up with a title only; absolutely no body text. I tried refreshing, hard refreshing, restarting, etc. Finally, I noticed a little "1" bubble on my adblock button, as if it had blocked a popup or something. I disabled AdBlock for Evernote (domain level), and voila! Problem solved. Just thought I'd share.

    Me too. I apologize to my fellow users who were really upset because they had to read... all caps letters...? I understand my approach here may not have been the most helpful, but no one is forcing you to read this. The issue is that Evernote support and their presence on this forum is completely disconnected from the engineering quality control of the product. There really is no functioning channel for EN users to communicate how bad this QC issue is. For crying out loud you can't even submit a support ticket if you're not a paying subscriber. Many of us are heavily invested due to existing workflows or business projects that are set up on the EN platform. The constant issue of data loss and overall quality control for software that is supposed to be a reference tool is a top line failure to prioritize the actual functions that are essential to the tool. It's a fundamental fail if the note saving app by design allows parts of notes to become unreadable - full stop. Additionally, when users spend many hours per day interacting with the EN environment, each of these issues become gigantic obstacles when - for example - I have to spend hours repeating research because images disappear from notes that just happen to be a few years old, and the source media URL no longer exists.

    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.

    Hi, I am a user of Evernote Premium and I love the core Evernote ideology of having the best search around. However, I am very interested in using evernote for digital note taking via handwriting on a Samsung tablet with s-pen. The following are a few features that would make this functionality much more useful to me: 1. More stroke width options - The smallest stroke width is still way too big for me. I want to be able to write small. 2. Ability to set background to lined paper 3. Support for pressure sensitive input from s-pen, asus pen, etc. 4. Ability to zoom in/out and pan - Currently it just lets me add pages. I do not like writing close to the edges of the tablet because it is not comfortable when I am writing on the couch. 5. More pen colors and highlighting. Upvote if you also want one or more of these features. Thank you for making my experience the best it can be. Please let me know if any of this functionality is in the works or when I could expect to see these.

    Sorry, you are in for a surprise. Some things work nicely on the iPad, but others don’t. Among those that don’t: - no tag hierarchy - no chance to work on several notes at once (joining, tagging or moving a group of notes in one go, no table of content) - the web clipping function is pretty basic - the pencil support is less advanced than expected Because of the last issue I take handwritten notes with GoodNotes 5, and export them into EN when they can be archived. For heavy lifting (organizing notes etc.) I use my MacBook Pro. This is my experience, based on my workflow. I would appreciate if you share your experience with your new setup.

    Can you use the import folder option in EN and send the PDFs to a Dropbox folder which EN is watching as an import folder? Workaround I know, but it might work. Or set up a profile where you save the PDF to a folder on your device and import from there. FWIW

    Similar to my autocomplete macro for tags, this macro provides a convenient way to insert inline links to other notes. You'll need Keyboard Maestro for this. Setup/Usage Download the macros (see below) Import the Macros to Keyboard Maestro Configure a hot key trigger for the selector macro and (for example) a hotkey trigger for the collector macro (although other triggers would work, too) - I use 'ctrl' + 'alt' + 'cmd' + '+' and 'ctrl' + 'alt' + 'cmd' + 'shift' + '+', respectively Run the collector macro (be patient: the first time might take a while…) You're all set! Now just type your hot key trigger for the selector macro, search for a note, press return and the macro will do the rest. Run the collector macro periodically to ensure that the newest notes are included. Subsequent runs should be fast, since we only collect new notes since the last run How it looks Download Evernote Note Autocomplete Macros.kmmacros My blog post introducing this macro.

    tell application "Keyboard Maestro Engine" to set NotesLastRun to getvariable "NotesLastRun" tell application "Evernote" set noteList to {} set noteSearch to find notes "created:" & NotesLastRun repeat with thisNote in noteSearch set nLink to note link of thisNote set nTitle to title of thisNote copy {nLink, nTitle} to the end of noteList end repeat return noteList end tell There you go. As you can see: It doesn't do anything too crazy. Most of the Parsing, etc. is done in KeyboardMaestro.

    Agreed, jump anchors are a quite useful feature; I use them in many of my documents >>Dude, stop making excuses <whine> <whine> No excuses; just solutions There's a feature request posted at the top of the discussion.

    I sometimes paste code into a note, but it's not a heavy duty use case for me. It's more often debug dumps, variable/object dumps, stack traces, etc., that sort of thing. Occasionally I'll save code snippets of algorithms. But if I want to work with code, I generally do it in a code editor.

    You can force a sync from the EN server by holding down the shift and option keys, and then click on the sync wheel symbol. Maybe this helps to solve your problem. Another possibility is to hold down the option key before clicking on the help menu. There is an additional menu point added at the end of the help menu items, behind which in a submenu are options to check and repair the local database. Uninstalling only does the job when you use an app like AppCleaner, and check all items in the list (scroll down, pick all !) for removal. If the uninstall is done the usual way on the Mac, the data folder will remain. The new installation will link up with the existing folder, which means that any problems hidden there will not be solved. The above actions should do the job - if not, try a complete un- and reinstall using AppCleaner.

    Got all that. It's a personal choice. I have the left panel closed other than those rare times some organizational need arises. I took a look after a share and said yuck! Mr problem I suppose, just didn't care for it. If you really, really want one account it is the pain you go through, pain proportional to the number of notes I suppose. 🤷‍♂️

    Hi. I'll move this to the general feature request thread since it seems to relate to all versions of Evernote. Whatever support it gets there, I can't see it being practical for Evernote - they'd have to monitor the website of every clip made by every user every day. At a minimum that could be 200M queries a day with a lesser number of potentially large downloads for clips to be updated. (And how would Evernote see differences between a clipped and much-annotated page and the current version?) This would probably make Evernote very unpopular with every other web user as traffic ground to a halt. It should be possible to cope with your requirement in normal usage anyway - clip a page and comment away, then next time you need to use that note use the embedded URL to revisit the page, and re-clip it into a new note. Use a note link to attach that to your existing notes.

    ...What they said. And we've had the discussion before about what will happen if Evernote just... stops... Well - everyone with a desktop app has a complete local copy of their database, and can (probably) use the file as an import source for other apps; speaking of which Evernote's small-nation size customer base will be a prime target for every surviving competitor out there (like it is now!). If there's a way to populate a new app with Evernote data, they'll offer it. our experience with software company crashes has been (thankfully) minimal, but there are usually sunsetting arrangements with a favoured beneficiary to hand user data on if the users wish and permit it. And for the reasons mentioned above I'd imagine Evernote could operate pretty handily on a wfh basis - that won't be an issue. NEO Asteroids now, that could be a problem...

    Thanks for your reply. As I said above, it fixed itself. Just for your info, It was not a Boolean search, just a straight up text search, origninally for one word, then two. The note was not created by OCR, it was straight text entry directly into EN. Nothing complicated. And I re-entered the search word(s) to make sure there was no hidden characters or incorrect entries.

    Hi All, In one of the first episodes of Evernote Behind the Scenes, CEO Ian Small and senior designer Mariano discussed our plan to improve search in Evernote Web. At the time, it was just that: a plan. Now Ian checks in with May, a senior product manager at Evernote, to see how that plan has become a reality. They put a working version of Evernote’s improved, soon-to-be-released search through its paces, showing how it really is “more interactive, more meaningful, and ever more useful."

    I own a marketing and branding firm that also operates a well-known blog for marketing students and business owners. The tools I use include a Lenovo ThinkPad, an iMac, an HTC EVO 3D, and an iPad. Our blogging software is all in the cloud. But on weekends, I travel to a city without any Internet access. I just wanted to say how important Evernote is to our blogging operation. I use the offline features of Evernote, thankfully available on all of my devices, to type up blog posts. Once I get back to a data connection, I sync all the posts and paste them into our blogging interface. The Notes feature on the iPad pales in comparison and I would be wasting all my time copying and pasting from that if it wasn't for Evernote.

    This sounds like the issue in which wrongdoers have stolen passwords from other sites (not Evernote), and then applied them to Evernote until they find ones that work, so that you have an unknown device logged in to your account. Best practice, I believe, is to immediately change your Evernote password to something unique and strong (https://www.evernote.com/secure/SecuritySettings.action), and then go to your account page and delete the intruding device.

    Dear Evernote team , I 've been a few years of intensive Evernote users in the private and professional spheres . I work for half a year with a Surface Pro 4 and do not want to miss it . However, unfortunately, very important aspect bothers me tremendously and drove me almost to Onenote : noting the miserable ways handwritten or draw in the Windows version of Evernote . Evernote Touch offers grotesquely no (Surface ) Pen support . The iOS version has indeed integrated drawing function and Penultimate . Is something equivalent for the Windows desktop version plans or ever has in mind ? I need practical advice on how I could solve by other apps by this problem. Greetings, Alex Greetings Alex

    Hi All, This is one of our most frequently asked questions and previous posts contained a lot of outdated information so I wanted to provide a refreshed answer. If you're trying to undo an action/typo you can 'undo' by doing the following: EN-Windows: Ctrl + Z EN-Mac: Command + Z EN- iOS: Shake device to receive 'Undo' prompt EN-Android: Tap 'Back' (curved arrow) button from the menu bar above the note EN-Web Client: Ctrl+Z if using Windows, Command+Z if using Mac If you're trying to recover a deleted note, check the Evernote Trash and restore it. If you're trying to recover a previous version of a note, check the 'Note History'

    I find it very frustrating that I cant edit my attached office files, e.g. Excel-files, without having to make a copy and add it in the note. It would be so nice to be able to the open the attached file in Excel, make the changes and then the attached file is updated in Evernote. This works in OneNote that I use at work and I find this very useful. I know Evernote isnt a file manager but I do belive it makes sense to keep some files there and it also makes sense to be able to edit them in an efficient way.

    Hi , I think it is would be cool and useful if the Table in evernote could do some basic Calculation like excel , no need so complex like what excel do , but some calculation between cell. This can Help a lot when someone want to sum the value of ingredient for example or many things that need some basic calculation . Well , that is what tables usually used for , isn't it . It would be much help rather than manually calculate the value one by one in the table . Hope you would reconsider this Idea , Thank you .

    I saw many great ideas from the contest. I couldn't participate as it was too late but it inspired me to do my own dashboard. OceanFact is a science communication project in marine biology that I started way before I heard about EN. Evernote changed everything! I am posting on instagram each a small fact about marine organisms and I used to do that in google doc. It would quickly pile up and become impossible to search for anything. On top of becoming sluggish. I can now write and have everything in one place, classified and all to reuse content later. The post-it are pictures with an internal link or a hyperlink to specific notes. They are inserted inside a table for a nice display. I made those postit notes with inkscape. I got inspired by Enrico Nahler and how he uses Filterize and Table of Contents. Behind each postit, there is a note that I feed with Filterize and some tags. When I add the tag "Published" to a note, it is removed from that list and goes to a specific note that collects all the ideas that have been completed, again with Filterize. This one is still a work in progress. I need to add all the categories and internal links to easily go back and forth between the notes. I would like to see your dashboards to get more inspirations. Especially if you have a calendar dahsboard or something you can make dynamical with dates. Best,

    Integrate a possibility to show the notes of specific notebooks in a KANBAN board/view. Like the tool "kanbanote", .. but fully integrated in Evernote and with more options like (color highlighting, prioritization, etc.). This will be one of the most important future features because more and more users of evernote with a huge amount of notes and a big structured notebook system will have the need to visualize and track the progression of their tasks and notes in one overview. I am an evernote user (very satisfied) till many years, .. but if evernote will not go with the time and offer agile ways as kanban, etc. to work with, .. i am forced to look after a new tool to support my daily work needs. But in the deep of my heart I want to stay at evernote and I am the greatest fan of evernote! :-) Markus

    It's a free service where you can set up a notebook in your Evernote account and any notes you 'publish' will post to your Postach.io blog. It's pretty cool and it's great for a free blog. Here is mine, it's pretty basic as I have my main blog at Typepad: https://anndroidgirl.postach.io/

    +1 from me. Hoping to see a dark theme in the MacOS and iOS apps soon. It's especially disappointing to see competing apps like Bear marketed as part of the "apps that look great in dark mode" on the front page of the new Mojave App Store. I need a dark theme half out of necessity (I do a lot of typing at night) and half because I don't feel like it's asking a lot from the Evernote team. This thread is nearly five years old. It's frankly ridiculous. I'll change apps out of spite before my next Evernote renewal, hopefully to an app with devs that are more responsive to reasonable feature requests.

    In a previous post on this subject, the reason for not including ink support in the mac version was rather ridiculous. You gave stats about how many people use Windows in the world over those that use Mac and that there were not enough Mac users to make it worth your while... if that is so, then why make a Mac version at all... that is a stupid statement. There are TONS of Mac users with Wacom tablets that would like ink support and you don't even care. Even Apple is including more and more ink support in the OS and you still act like it is a rare request... are you kidding me? Thanks for ink viewing in the Mac version... utterly useless as most Mac users of Evernote are not using Mac and Windows, so why would I care if I could read an ink document on my Mac if I have no way to create an ink document in the first place. I am tired of you and other companies talking about the low percentage of Mac users as if we are insignificant and have no bering on anything. The reason there are so many Windows users even today is because companies like you refuse to make equivalent features... why switch to Mac when companies only release a limited version on Mac. That is what Microsoft does, "We will give you Office and Microsoft Messenger, but it will have very few features in common with the Windows versions because we don't want people to switch to Mac." Now Microsoft has a legitimate reason... so what is yours? Is it the same? Are you trying to keep everyone on Windows? Is that your ultimate goal? It is sad that I have Evernote yet I have to use Notebook by Circus Ponies and Inkbook by Mage Software because you refuse to include ink support. So now I have 2 locations where I store my notes, and Evernote is starting to look less and less like the most viable option at this point. You didn't even say, "We will look into the possibility of including it if we get enough requests." No, instead you simply stated, flat out, there is NEVER going to be direct ink support in the Mac version. So the money we pay for the Premium account is good enough for you to profit off of, but not good enough for you to listen to take our concerns seriously to help improve your software? Where would you be without your users? We are not important enough to dedicate any additional programming time as the percentages are not high enough for you. Until companies start offering equal feature sets, nothing is going to change... but what do I know... I'm just a Mac user... a single digit percentage of the overall users... so just continue to ignore us because we are insignificant.
