    This screenshot does only tell that you (probably) want to copy some text with „rich“ formatting properties into EN.

    I don’t want to copy text with “rich” formatting. Evernote does have a plain text formatting for notes, and always has, since I’ve started using the product in 2011. 

    As I originally posted:

    • On Evernote iOS
    • When, in Evernote Settings > Notes > Advanced Editing; if any of the options are turned on, such as Lists
    • Changing a note to Plain Text
    • The expected behavior is that typing a hyphen and a space is that it would no longer create a bulleted list, which is a rich text formatting option

    I don’t care about exporting true plain text etc etc. I only care about writing in plain text in certain cases. I don’t want to go into settings and turn off the very helpful, markdown-style advanced editing functions every time I need to write a plain text document.

    For plain text, use a text editor on a file attachment.

    I don't think this is a helpful response. I know that Evernote team members view these forums, and if multiple people have a problem, or report unexpected behavior, they will prioritize and fix. 

    Either upvote or move on, but don't give me unhelpful workarounds. Evernote has plain text options built in; whether or not they are truly .txt output is beside the point. The point is that helpful auto-formatting options shouldn't continue to create rich text formatting once in plain text mode.  

  3. I'd love to see some kind of Grammarly integration that's more like a product collaboration – offer it as part of my subscription, in all apps, and as a discounted price. This would motivate me to upgrade from my older pricing that I've been unwilling to switch away from for the past 5 years.

    Sounds like my set up is bit uncommon. But maybe it is just a simple key mapping addition to some sort of array or something.

    Actually, not that uncommon for people either using an external monitor, or those using iMacs etc and an extended keyboard. 

    I was here looking for a fast way to scroll back to the top of the list of notes from a shortcut in a notebook that may have hundreds of newer notes in it and the Home key does the trick; however, I do wish I could double-click "Notes" and have it scroll to the top.

    If I was Evernote, I would be hesitant. Basic calculations today. Summary and Average calculations tomorrow. Statistic calculations soon. Slippery slope.

    Honestly I don't see how this is a slippery slope. It's a matter of Product Management and feature planning as noted (basic calculations first, advanced calculations later); finding out what features users want and need and adding them.

    Evernote isn't an advanced spreadsheet application, so how they design the UX would be more about an approach that's focused on simplicity IMO. If you really need an advanced Sheet, why don't you link a Google Sheet in your Note and open it in an app that's made for it? What I'd like to see is the nice Google doc link formatting that's in Desktop on mobile…

  6. It would be great to be able to add variables or smart info to templates. For example, a daily to-do list that copies over all incomplete to-do's from the day before, but none of the completed to-do's.

    Or maybe I can put something like {DATE}—{DAY} in the title and it will put today's date and the day of the week separated by an em dash as the title of the note.

  7. Are there plans to update the FaceTime Camera Notes? I’d like to see them:

    • Take photos in the same aspect ratio the camera is capable of
    • Take photos in the same resolution the camera is capable of
    • Allow the user to decide to turn mirroring on or off

    Currently this feature takes a very low res, 4:3 “old school” video-conference-style snapshot, even on very new MacBooks that have really great cameras.

  8. Personally, I find the new notebook view effective. I can scan the notebook titles from top to bottom quickly and find what I want. It’s this reason alone that when given a choice between list and grid view, I choose list, unless there is some outstanding visual reason to choose grid (like it’s easier to identify through imagery).

    All of the notebooks looked the same, so grid offers no benefit in my opinion; however, as pointed out, my opinion doesn’t matter.

  9. Also, for those of us that are having some serious issues going from beta to GA release, sometimes you have to uninstall everything, download a fresh copy, and reinstall. I tried one of the beta versions a while back and everything went sideways for me. I had to hunt down every last trace of Evernote on my Mac and delete it in order to make the problem go away… Once I had the fresh, non-beta install on there and my data all synced up again, everything was peachy. 

    BTW, I’ve been using Evernote for 6+ years and have 2K+ notes.

  10. I’ve requested Markdown in the past, the answer was always the challenge of making the formatting look the same no matter what platform you’re on: Web, iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, etc. Short answer: Last I heard, they have the system working, so they don’t want to change it up (if it’s not broken, don’t try and fix it).

    That’s not to say that you couldn’t implement Markdown-style syntax; other editors out there have done just that.
