  1. Thanks very much for the response.That changes the cell background, but not the line color. I want to keep the cell the same color it already is, but to change the line color. This was an option via the standard Evernote right-click menu, via the "Tables" option. It's not there any more. It was nice of you to take the time to include the screen-caps. I appreciate the help.
  2. I updated Evernote this morning. Then I went to format a table -- specifically, to change its line color. I right-clicked to go to "Table properties"...and that option was no longer there . I'm *hoping* that this means it has been moved somewhere (as opposed to an "update" having removed features), but I'm damned if I can find it. Does anybody know where to look? Thank you.
  3. Always encouraging when you search to see if there's a way to do something fairly essential...only to find the same request has been been falling on deaf ears...FOR FIVE. YEARS. Sigh. I suppose the rationalization that most people don't have high-res screens was...more or less sane in 2012. It certainly isn't in November 2017. I can honestly say that by far the most annoying thing about using a very large screen is having to constantly lean across the table to squint at my list of notes in Evernote. Let's face it, we use that list constantly. It should not be extremely difficult to do so
  4. Thanks very much to both of you. I am as yet unversed in AppleScript, but looking at yours as an example may be just the spark I needed, DTLow. But as a fix that's not dependent on my as yet nonexistent skill with that, Keyboard Maestro sounds to be just the thing. So thanks very much, JMichaelTX!
  5. Hello. I have a sort of index at the top of all my Evernote pages that allows me to navigate between various "landing pages" -- tables of contents linking to other notes. It looks like this. Each item links either to another note or to a website. Since I paste it at the top of every page, it would be very useful if I could have a shortcut for it in a text expander. Does anyone know of a text expander that would support this? It's a simple, single-row Evernote table with background color and links. My impression was that Typinator could retain the links, but not the table format. Bu
  6. One more vote here. It seems likely that recent political events will increase interest in privacy all round (not just VPNs). Brave works really, really well, and as more people try it, it will get bigger. As people switch browsers, let's hope they don't also switch to one of Evernote's burgeoning alternatives! The web clipper is pretty crucial part of Evernote....
  7. That's hilarious and infuriating! Maybe Evernote is taking kickbacks from the ever-powerful Anger Management Therapy cartel? Absurdity much appreciated. Many thanks for sharing it!
  8. On the Mac, it's extremely temperamental (read: unpredictable and frustrating). I have the same row of links at the top of each page, to allow for quick navigation. As @tardis observed, you can change the color of each link, one at a time. But there are situations where you changed links A through F orange (for example), but when you turn G orange, A reverts to its original color. But when you highlight it, the color GUI indicates that it is still orange. You end up more or less trying random things until it works, and never quite understand how you got there. On top of that, even once yo
  9. Nice to hear I'm not the only one with such concerns. The thing is, they do have default colors -- just different defaults on different platforms. Which kind of defeats the purpose of defaults in the first place or, at best, stops short of carrying the purpose through. But I'm told the different platforms are slouching toward consistency, so...I will commence not holding my breath.
  10. At this stage, I think that tablets and handheld devices (and probably the web version) having less functionality than the desktop versions is pretty understandable. I wouldn't expect uniformity between desktop and handheld until the handheld devices become way more powerful. Plus, with limited screen size, certain functions simply become irrelevant.
  11. Thanks! While "not overnight" strikes me as a massive understatement , I guess if cross-platform consistency has only recently become more of a priority, then, yes, they've not had a lot of time, and there's clearly a lot on their plate (also an understatement). But it's good to hear that it has become more of a priority. I think Evernote will benefit enormously from that. I just hope that the general rule will be to add features to the platforms missing them, rather than eliminating features for the sake of uniformity. I really appreciate the reply/background! M.
  12. Thanks! In general (I suppose there must be a thread about this, but it's relevant here...), does anybody have a sense of why some functions are available in one platform but not the other? In this case, it's not like OS X somehow can't allow the function. Does Evernote think that Mac users and PC users just don't want the same things (and even then, it's not like the "two groups" don't overlap substantially). Do the developers from different platforms not communicate? Do they just disagree about what users should and shouldn't be able to do? Are there factions?! I'm being a little sarca
  13. Like many Evernote users, I use note links a LOT. Many of my most used pages have a dozen or more note links, often in bold. At home I use Evernote for Mac, and at work I use the Web version (on a PC). When I create note links on Evernote for Mac, it uses a different shade of green from that of the note links I create using the web. The problem is compounded by the fact that (for reasons that elude me) Evernote makes links to websites blue, and links to notes green (for me the text of the links is sufficient to tell me where they go, without introducing a third color). So now the links
  14. I see that PC users have the option to show/hide the notes list, but I can't find that command for the Mac. A shortcut would be nice but, to be clear, it's not just a shortcut I can't find, but the command itself. I can find show/hide sidebar (complete with shortcut), but not the note list. Can anybody help? Thanks! Michael
  15. Stuhrer, thanks so much for the generous/detailed reply. I will try this soon - really helpful stuff! Michael PS It sounds like it could be useful to set up an autocorrect or text expansion shortcut for the constant, account-identifying (i.e. not note-specific) part of one's links.
  16. Sorry if this is covered somewhere, but I've not been able to find it. I've recently switched, God help me, from using the (Windows) desktop version of Evernote at work to using the web version. My *impression* is that there's no way to insert note links (not shared on the web, but links from one note in my account to another) in the web version, though I see that the note links I've inserted using the Windows, Mac, and iOS version all function on the web version. Along the same lines, my impression is there's not way to insert or edit a hyperlink in the web version (say, for example, I want
  17. Just wanted to add another voice. The removal of the option to drag and drop notes into notebooks is a **huge** loss. Evernote becomes drastically less useful (or at least usable) without it. I'm always perplexed by software upgrades that take away features. For whatever reason, it happens pretty often.
