    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.

    It's more a case of someone who did a web search on something like "sort a stack", and copied/pasted an answer from some developer site. E.g.: https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/sort-stack-using-temporary-stack/: Look familiar?

    Yes, what I was thinking as well. This seems like more plumbing (and the name "Conduit" is a little leading in that respect), though on the client side, and seemingly under the hood of the UI, as far as I can tell. But it's still a bit cloudy in terms of what it encompasses. But it seems as though Evernote applications still need to do device-specific work on whatever platforms are supported. OK, so Conduit: seems as though the Evernote API, that still exists, and has to continue work because of existing 3rd-party applications. As I understood it, all of the existing Evernote applications also use (or used) the API, but will switch over to the Conduit. So is the Conduit mainly a wrapper around the API. possibly making use of the API more rigorous/regular (or maybe implementing Evernote policies) in terms of handling syncs and whatever else it does? Wondering whether Conduit also enforces policies on note content (e.g. providing available heading styles and other fonty stuff, which will be new). Does Conduit provide search facilities, so we get more predictable results on different devices? Does Conduit handle caching stuff as well? Does it handle local databases, which are different on different devices? Many idle questions... Oh, and whither CEF? Is that still a thing, client side? Is the Conduit going to be made available to 3rd party developers, a la the API?

    I find that frequently when I use Web clipper under Windows to save a Web page into Evernote, or share to Evernote from a browser on my Android phone, I get a lot of HTML formatting such as headers that makes the note difficult to use and edit. I've just discovered that the Web beta editor can fix such problems. I used it to open a note that had been clipped from the Web and had header styling near the top. I selected the header text, and the leftmost element of the editor's formatting toolbar showed it as styled "Large header." Clicking on that, I selected the option to "Apply 'Normal text.'" Voilà! The header formatting was removed, and it was normal text--and appeared as such (Tahoma 10 pt) in the Windows program. I tried this on another note that had a big block of material at the top that the beta editor showed in a box and identified as "HTML content" or something. I found that I could move it out of the box and format it as I pleased. This is a big plus for the Web beta editor, IMHO. From now on, it will be my go-to in reformatting clipped Web pages, until the same function is available in the Windows and Android apps. @Scott T., please pass this along to the devs!

    I don't think so. I don't even see a standalone "Printing" section under the preferences screen on macOS. Here are the categories, if you're interested: That being said, I'm not having any issues printing multiple notes to PDF. When I select multiple notes, I can go File > Print Notes (or hit ⌘P). I'm prompted to enter a filename, and then I can save the file to PDF like I would any other document. Each individual note is printed as a separate PDF, as others have noted, and mine all used the same naming convention that I entered as a filename (with numbers appended to the end). To my surprise, even my attachments were printed as separate PDFs. My experience matches my expectations.

    Second that. The new web editor beta (hopefully to arrive on other platforms) is great. "Simplifying" web clips on my Windows Desktop version often leads to problems with images and the like; I started resorting to the Web Editor Beta for most of that work. The clear indication of what is HTML content, and much better results in converting that to editable (simplified) content are far superior. Also, the editor allows for some features like multiple highlight colors (although the yellow for whatever reason is not the yellow of the desktop, but an uglier variant --- at least in my view), better formatting (headers, and correct representation of those, as opposed to the broken spacing on the desktop editor), etc. Bit shout-out to the creators of this web editor. After many years as premium user and on the verge of jumping ship, I've become more enthusiastic about the recent improvements and the roadmap.

    Thank you for this MOST HELPFUL tip. In another thread, I had mentioned the issues with clipping and formatting. Most of the time I use the desktop app; rarely do I ever pull up a note in a browser. I'll try to "fix" some of my notes online now. This is better advice than the person who replied. There was cumbersome advice that required copying and pasting into notepad then to EN or to print to PDF first (which is always my last option). He said I and others not happy with the way EN clips web pages should look elsewhere if we were not happy with the way EN "works"...

    Confirmed - it takes me to 5.28 on Safari and FF. Which is no issue for me, I am mostly using one of the desktop clients or the iOS app. No Chrome, no beta. Maybe an explanation is that both Safari and FF do not rely on the Chrome engine, but use their own code do present web pages. Chrome-based browsers have the largest share of the market, so companies will develop for this browser first. And I try to avoid Google products wherever possible, so I will not touch it.

    Hello All, What do Evernote and a wedding reception have in common? Watch the video to find out! In this installment of Behind the Scenes, CEO Ian Small chats with Amir, a senior member of our engineering management team, about the work they’re doing to transfer over 9 billion notes to a faster, more scalable cloud storage architecture.Ian and Amir discuss the benefits of this new architecture, and the challenge of (as Amir says) “trying to refuel a plane while it’s in flight.”

    Thanks for this report. Please try these steps to fix this issue: Select File > Exit to close Evernote Open the task manager to confirm Evernote is not running as a background process (select "Evernote and End task") Open 'regedit' (Windows key + R, then type regedit) Expand the HKEY_CURRENT_USER folder Expand the "Software" folder Expand the Evernote Folder Click on the second "Evernote folder" so that a list of Values displays on the right Right-Click "EnableHardwareAcceleration" Select "Modify" Set Hexidecimal Value to "0" Select File>Exit to exit the Registry Editor Reopen Evernote Please let me know if the issue continues after completing the steps above. Thanks!

    Well it got fixed, on its own. Or because I changed some formatting by make the commands into code snippets. The note is now at the very top and now without the quotes. I wouldn't be able to explain why but frustration time on this one is over. I would like to thank you for the assistance and great suggestions.

    I want to be clear that every Gmail thread has its own link, just as if it was a webpage. I can put a link to a Gmail message in an Evernote note. Here is the results: 1. In Evernote desktop client, click the link to the Gmail message and Gmail opens to that message. 2. In Evernote web, click the link to the Gmail message and Gmail opens to that message. 3. In Android mobile app, click the link to the Gmail message. The Gmail app does not open. Instead, the Gmail inbox opens in the broweser on the mobile device instead of opening to the specific message. That's where the problem lies.

    Yeah, same for me on my iPhone. Which is sort of what one would expect on IOS, there not really being a browser option. Not so much on the desktop.

    I have many years of receipts from my life and business. Is there a way to scan so OCR sees the date and time of the actual receipt and has that available for later programmatic use? Most processes scan and store by scan date and time. That wouldn’t be practical for future retrieval. If said original date and time were available, another process could file the receipt by date into a folder specified before the scan run. (One month per scan run; half-yearly folders in one stack) Otherwise I’d have to start now and even my January and February receipts to date wouldn’t be in Evernote.

    My process is to scan receipts with my ScanSnap 1300i. I leave the SN generated file title as is (2020_02_07_13_18_43.pdf), tag them with Receipt and _yyyy, and store them in a receipt notebook. Per @gazumped I search for a receipt using something other than date. The _yyyy tag and particular notebook help winnow the search results. I sometimes wonder if it is worth the effort, but just yesterday my wife asked for a receipt for some buttons she wanted to return, bought around Christmas time. Found and printed inside of 60 seconds. Couldn’t have done it that quickly if I’d saved the paper. FWIW.

    My "master" in this case for search is QuickBooks Mac, as I run a one-man small business; everything goes in there first. I don't want to have to hold onto the physical receipts. I just looked up what the IRS wants, and digital receipts are OK, as long as you can keep and find them later. I knew that other people would be asking that kind of question, so I asked. Thanks for all your answers.

    This is an old topic but I recently ran into this myself. I found the solution was to shutdown Evernote and then pop open Terminal and remove the following .plist file in your local Library directory: rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.evernote.ENAttachmentToPDFHelper.plist To be safe you could also drag it to your Desktop first or delete from the Finder. After restarting Evernote, the correct font should now be used in your image annotations. It worked for me with Evernote version 7.14 on MacOS 10.14 anyway. Hoping this helps someone else.

    Wow, When broken down like this, It seems silly for asking such a question. Let's ask this scenario given my Devices. I use Android, iPad air, (+ Windows laptop rarely). Yesterday I SShot many images of Slides (in iPad) Needed in Order for an Important Course. Otherwise it doesn't make much sense. I seem to need Sequencing of Photos, SShots, etc. quite A Lot. My iPad is Older, & almost out of space. SO, I am Screenshotting on iPad and choose from "Photos" to send to EN. May be a simple minded question, but How do I - See Sequence in Photos while Choosing in Photos and dragging & Dropping in ENote❓ I suppose having these pre made "tables" you spoke of I'd where this would work❓ ✨About the 🔪 thing, My nephew attending College in London tried to buy kitchen knife (dual citizen) and was denied✨ 😳 Thank you so much for all of your time and Explanation. Happy VTD 🌹

    ??? I do not know any upload service where the sequence of picking files in the source medium would be preserved in the receiving medium. If I pick files on my computer and upload - say - to a folder in Dropbox, upload will happen in a non-sequential way. The sequence of the files in the Dropbox will be presented by the settings I choose there, not by how I sequence anything on my computer. It’s just often the same, because sorting by name or date will produce the same result on both platforms. A EN note is not a folder, it is a piece of HTML code waiting to get some content. When pics are imported into it, they will show up in an order that does not depend on how they were picked in another place. I think that the mixed up sequence results from the upload queue and the server queue on the EN side. Any file will be cut into code packets for an internet transfer, and reconstructed from these at the receiving device, like beaming them up in Star Trek. There is plenty of space for things to get mixed up under way. If the last package received is from the first picture, it will appear last. If I need a certain sequence of say photos in a note, I open both programs side by side, open a note, put a number of line feeds into it to create some space and draw & drop the picture into the note how I want to see them. I found this to be easier than to rearrange the pictures later in EN. The pictures are embedded into the text flow now (even when there is no text), and position is preserved. If the pictures are of different sizes, or I want them smaller in EN, I create a table first, and import the pictures one by one into the table fields. For recipes I found it useful to have a table with 2 columns, one with the pics and the second with the work flow describing what to do. You can even create some layout by using the tables design settings. If you do it more often, create a note with this design, and save a copy of it as a template. If you use it in the US, you can even put all the security warning stuff into the template, to avoid getting sued if the oven was hot, the freezer cold or the knifes sharp 😉

    There used to be a cookie called enappinstalled, I think that was the name, that controlled this. It is set the first time you click on a note link and then is supposed to stay set from then on. To fix this the cookie needs to be reset so as to reset the preference. At least that is how is used to work, don't know if EN made some changes. As premium you could submit a trouble ticket to determine if the cookie still exists or what the process is to reset. My links are still opening in the desktop FWIW.

    Please create a default zoom level. It's super annoying that the zoom does not stick. If you set it and click into another notebook you come back the note is back to the default zoom. I have to zoom in EVERY SINGLE TIME i go into a notebook. AT THE VERY LEAST please remember the zoom for that specific notebook. I have a 4k and 5k monitor and its impossible for me to read the default size text.

    I certainly don't want to bother users, @PinkElephant, but Evernote officially and clearly points (https://dev.evernote.com/support/) here or to StackOverflow. And in both places you don't get support from Evernote team. I whished someone of the Team was around in one of those two places... or another place clearly indicated for developer support. Already asked to the link you provided, but only useless automatic replies, for now. Certainly not what's needed for who's developing a commercial integration. Anyway, thanks for your reply. I'm not expecting answers from users, of course. Just trying to raise an issue. I'm sure I'm not the only one with this problem.

    +1 Yes, anybody who cares can have a test flight, using the web beta. It is announced to be released for the other editors as well, including the mobile ones. What is still missing is a date for this (hopefully soon).

    When viewing notes on the phone, frequently I switch to other apps to do things like reply message, searching some content of the notes on the internet and so on. However, unlike the built-in Notes app on IOS, Evernote frequently reloads itself and returns to the top of the page and unsaves the action performed before switching to other apps. It very frustrating when the note is very long with lots of tables and we are editing something. It would be so much easier if the app can keep its status in memory much longer so that we can view the same things again after switching back. Since IOS Notes itself can do it and there is no problem on my Mac, I assume there could be a way of fixing this for IOS? I am using a iPhone 8 for reference. Thank you very much.

    Hi all, Thanks for your patience while we worked to get a full-featured version of Web Clipper for Safari 13 ready for you. We’ve now released an update that restores full functionality to Web Clipper and is backward-compatible with recent versions of Safari (12.0 and later). To install the updated Web Clipper extension, follow this link to the Mac App Store, then click Get > Install. When the download is finished, follow the prompts to complete the installation. Even if you haven’t installed the latest version of Safari (or aren’t planning to), we recommend updating Web Clipper today to ensure compatibility with macOS Catalina and future versions of Safari.

    I work construction and design and out in field all the time sketching and making notes. Really would.like ability to pick Grid, Engineering or Ruled(ability to pick line heights). The grid used to be an option, bring back. I was told by Customer Service this was the only way to get this option was to get Penultimate which is for Apple only.

    This not only happens when you switch apps. If you are in a meeting taking notes and you stop for a couple of minutes then when you go to start taking notes again the note refreshes and goes to the top of the note. I have had to stop using Evernote on my iPad for note taking in meetings. This has been an issue for many months and I keep getting told a fix is on its way but there have been several iOS app updates and still it is not fixed.

    I have been an EN user since Beta, and became a Premium user as soon as it was offered. I do not understand why EN is lagging with simple security options, such as easy encryption of notes and notebooks. This really should be as easy as a Right-Click or selection in properties for a Note or Notebook. The existing method of selecting text in a note and then using a Right-Click option to encrypt it is cumbersome at best. Yes, it is a nice feature if one wants to encrypt only a portion of a note. That's fine. But there should be an easy way to (1) encrypt an entire note without selecting text and (2) encrypt an entire notebook. I would be willing to pay a few bucks extra a year for this additional encryption ability. Seems this should be a no-brainier for EN, both as a tech matter and as a business/profit matter.

    Nearly six months since it appears to be in the Windows version, and I'm here to comment that it is not in the Mac version as far as I can see. Seems like an odd thing to be missing for feature parity! May it come soon. But then I've been waiting for years to be able to pin notes and insert/edit URLs on iOS, so I'm not exactly hopeful.

    Hi. When I do a "search in evernote" at the end I have a list of notes and in each note highlighted word I wanted to find. In many cases it take me a lot of time to find what I wanted. Can you please improve the overview somehow ?

    I suppose we're not. If there are real 2nd class citizens here, that would be the Linux folks. haha But we're paying (at least I was, formerly) the same amount as Mac users. And we're here left to hang yet again. For something that's been requested for at least 5 years now you'd think they'd have plenty of time to release dark mode for everyone. Instead they keep on pushing these features that would make evernote a powerpoint competitor instead of a note-taking program. Take it as you will. And I have a sense of perspective in this and that's within the Evernote environment. I don't need to look around the world to feel like the company doesn't value me as much as other users. What do you call someone who pays (again, formerly) the same amount for the same thing and gets less than everyone else? Where are the timelines? Even a vague promise? A shot-in-the-dark date that says "we'll release dark mode on Windows in 2020 or something"? I'm sure there's a lot of work involved in it but a dark mode isn't exactly cutting edge technology that needs years to develop. They obviously have priorities and I know people want to think we're all equal here but that's not how I'm feeling it. I'm glad you're contented with how Evernote is taking care of you but I'm not. And I'm sure I'm not alone with this. But yeah, I AM making this sound so grave so sorry for that. It's just a dark mode after all. Dark mode was just a nice-to-have feature for such a long time and now that it's come and there are no indications that it will come to Windows too, coupled with the fact that Evernote closed that other thread just like that, it gets frustrating.

    Hi All, You may have noticed that all threads requesting RTL (right-to-left) support have been merged into this thread, regardless of platform specificity. This was done in order to better enable us to quantify and qualify user requests, and amplify their voice. While this does not mean this is a feature that will be coming, we certainly want to relay user feedback/sentiment to our various teams. Moving forward, please put all commentary and votes for RTL (right-to-left) support here!

    Remarkable is a Linux product, and there's editors available for other platforms. I use Textastic on Mac and IOS. Both of these editors support Markdown formattining, but I still prefer Evernote's native enml/html format. I'm a fan of using external editors when I need features not available in the Evernote editor. Evernote is my tool for cloud storage.

    I am considering a move from Evernote to either Onenote or Google because there is no functionality built into Evernote for either Amazon Alexa or Google Home/ Google Assistant, both of which I use heavily. My idea is to provide support for both with list creation as a minimum function (producing shopping lists on both Alexa and Assistant is remarkably simple and accessible). I would hate to move because Evernote is currently one of my household's most valued apps.

    Is it correct that your forum account and your Evernote account(s) are wholly separate? That's my understanding anyways. If so, it might be a good idea to change references like 'your Evernote Account' to 'your Evernote forum account'.

    Actually, what you can do is: * open Evernote * Select the notebook that you want to start with * From the menu, select "Add to Home Screen" A shortcut will be placed on your desktop, and if you use that rather than the standard Evernote app icon, it will start up in the notebook that you selected. Note that this is applicable to any search filter you choose, like a standard text search, tags, date, etc.
