    Could be several reasons that make the process take more time that is should. The person in charge of posting on the forum may not be running the beta software on their computer is one.

    Or maybe someone should just try a little harder. I'm sorry but this is basics, I can't see why wouldn't it be implemented. There is no convincing argument why something could not be improved that easily can be. Its 2016. Images and video are practically outnumbering the text. Almost every tool that we have now can do that. Including Evernote itself, has screenshot capability and this forum has the upload button. I don't see why something so useful would be so difficult to implement. Aren't we all here to improve Evernote and its community?

    Well since pinning notebooks to the top shouldn't override a "sort by" action, as that would mean that you would have to unpin the note everytime you want to do a manual sort action, wouldn't pinning need a different area at the top of the lists which mirrors the pinned notes?

    The reason for "pinning" a note is to remind you of that note in the future. And If you click the reminder button, the standard is that it won't add a date, thus only having the function to pin the note. But even if the name of the "reminder" button was changed to a "pin note" button, doesn't it already pretty much fix your problem?

    Or how would you implement it?

    If you think the reminder UI is clunky, maybe you have some suggestions to make it less clunky?

    My personal need is not related to reminders or being reminded, its about accessing the information I need quickly and with most flexibility. Shortcuts and reminders are not idea but they are better than nothing.

    How would I implement it?

    Simple. You would be able to sort the notes the same way you can do now, expect when you right click on note you always want at the top of the list, you would choose "pin the note" or something like that.

    This forum we are in now, always has one post, the original post pinned even if you browse trough the pages of the thread right? When you go on Facebook page, there is usually one, the most important post pined. In Windows Explorer on Win 10 you can choose any folder and pin it to quick access. It is quite common feature, more and more. Precisely because its simple and handy.

    While screenshots would be nice, the beta information is not marketing. They are not supposed to put effort into convincing you to test the new beta by explaining how good the new features might be. It's information for the people that actually do download the beta, to test out the new features before release.

    But adding a screen shot is super easy and as they say an image speaks a thousand words. I don't see any convincing argument why it can't be added.

    [Edit 7/15: we've updated the beta to address a few bugs so try the download link again to get the latest]

    Hi everyone,

    We just released a new beta - You can download it here

    Please reply to this post and let us know how you like it! And if you find an issue, please let us know in a reply to this post.


    Chantal (and the rest of the Windows Evernote team!) 

    Evernote for Windows 6.2.1 Release Notes


    • New Tools/Options UI with lots of new options available
    • New Thumbnail view for your list of notes that presents notes the way they look in Note View


    • Shortcuts can now be optionally displayed on a separate toolbar.
    • Quick Search: clicking the button will pass the search to note search, just like Enter key. (thanks to gustavgi)
    • Assisted Search: hovering the "several" notebooks popup shows notebook notes preview tooltip. (thanks to gustavgi)


    • Miscellaneous bug fixes and improvements.

    I would also like to recommend using this opportunity is when posting new updates notification like the next beta release or something. Can you please include screenshots of the new features. Reading something like this:


    • New Tools/Options UI with lots of new options available
    • New Thumbnail view for your list of notes that presents notes the way they look in Note View

    Does not reveal a lot about what that is unless one installs the Evernote, its hard to say what it means. Including a simple screenshot, or Gif would greatly help with this. And its super easy to do.  I have been asking for this in the past. But seems every time its the new employee who posts the update notification.  Thanks.

    Hi @Krunoslav,

    I appreciate you taking the time to create this feature request, and I can definitely see why that would be a useful feature within notebook stacks. We receive many feature requests everyday, so it's hard for our development team to respond to them all individually, but rest assured they do review the forum, in particular the Product Feedback forums. With the implementation of the new voting system, we encourage our users to vote for ideas they like, giving our team a better idea of what features are wanted by many. I've added my vote to your feature request :).

    Thank you for responding Amanda, I appreciate that very much. For the record, I don't mind the wait for any feature if I know that its being worked on or I'm explained why is not possible. But I do mind when a company ignores the users. So thank you for responding in person. The voting system you mentioned, can you please make it more clear how to do it so that all users will quickly become aware of it where and how to use it. Is there a how to video video you can post on the forums that is pined or something so its hard to miss. Otherwise with the number of distractions the average users is dealing with on daily basis its going to be easy to miss.

I will re-post this again on the forum where the beta release notification is. I am posting it here because you seem to be one of very few people from Evernote who actually reposed to a concern or request. Thanks.

    I have been using Evernote, about 3 years now and I am very happy with it. The one thing that I really miss from Onenote is the Florescent Mulit-Color Highlighter. How hard would that be to add to all of your platforms? In my research I use different colors for rating importance.

    Fully support this except I would like to see colors less saturated or option between the two. Maybe something like this....

    I'm not here to digress into a discussion about how Evernote prioritizes its potential features -- that's largely a black box to us at this time. Or Evernote's future. Or the competition, such as it will or may someday become. Or yada-yada. I'm more interested in giving them better feedback as far as what features users want, and this being a sub-forum that allows voting, I'd like to keep it as focused as possible on giving them specific feedback, and not just laundry lists (which are not useful when tabulating votes). If you think that dark themes or tabbed interface are part and parcel of a reading-focused Evernote when the original post seemed to be about offering a better reading experience for PDF files, then fine, and feedback is good. But there is also a dark theme-specific topic in this subforum, and that would be a good place to add your vote, as it's really a feature not specific to Evernote-as-a-reader. I haven't found a tabbed interface specific post in here, though I know that it has been requested over the years.

    Fair enough.

    As a fellow forum user, I'd make a suggestion: if you want new features (like dark mode or tabbed interface, that seem to be only loosely related to the initial suggestion), then you should probably consider finding existing suggestions here in the feedback forum for those ideas, and upvote them, or create new ones yourself. That way they can be independently discussed and voted on by other users, and hopefully give Evernote a clearer idea of what users want most.

    One thing about the Windows client: although it uses web browser technology to display notes, its UI is not itself based on a web browser, and its programming is still done using standard Windows native APIs last time i checked, so it may not be quite to accomplishable on the developer lunch breaks. While I can see the usefulness of the tabbed view case, I'm also thinking that they'd need to be careful not to cause a confusing mess when sorting out how that would all work with their existing UI, which has a strong tie between the note lis (as exhibited by the various options for note views)t and the single note window in the main application.

    What worries me that simple features are seemingly so hard to implement. Which means either the evernote team does not put them as priority, they don't have the budget or the underlying infrastructure of Evernote. assuming that is the right expression, is severally limited. If that is the case than I cannot see how they can keep up with the competition for very long. Especially after recent big price increase.

    They have just came up with Evernote 6. It does not seem to be changed in any big way under the hood. Or am I missing something? Why not build on a platform that meets the demands of the future. If they don't have the staff and budget, I can understand that. But its not the responsibility of the users. Evernote is not a new company they have been around for a while and in the tech world its really a long time. Obviously the decision makers have made some bad decisions and now the only way seems to be for them to raise prices to try to finance new development. I just hope its not a little to late.

    What worries me is that the company policy has not really change when it comes to two way dialog with its users. I don't see any timeframes or milestones being mentioned which does not inspire lot of trust in company that once claimed ot be a 100 year company. The world is changing fast and Evernote is falling behind. If simple and rather obvious improvements cannot be implemented fast and if the dialogs with its users cannot be improved what is the point in requesting features that fall on deaf ears. With " 13,199 posts " you must have been long enough in these forums to know that code of silence practice so vigorously by evernote team when it comes to those things is not helping their brand.

    But I digress. Adding simply reading mode would help. The reason I asked for tab interface is that it would offer the semi reading mode of "open note in new window" but with more elegance. Once there were web browsers like Internet Explorer who did not have tabs. Than Firefox came along and change that. The difference was painfully obvious how much more elegance tabs offer in navigating the ever more complex web. Evernote is right now IE. And OneNote is Firefox. ironically I might add.

    But the new competition that is bound to show up any day now. will surly add those things to the feature list right from the start. If Evernote does not speed up their development process, I can assure you they will bleed both money and users. So maybe I'm opening another topic on top of original request but we all know that when an interesting thread appears that sparks interests people don't go look for another one.

    Just saying...

    I agree. Hopefully they have something like that in mind when refering to a new global feedback forum.

    Me too. Although I think that anyone who is interested and observant can see the request and make educated guess what the users want the most. So far it seems the company had either unauthorized forum moderators or disinterested decision makers. Probably both. After all one would explain the other.

    Evernote always have operated on the basis that while they're pleased to keep users in the loop from time to time,  they don't employ anyone as a user-facing intermediary. Yet various employees have stopped by here to help out forum members and comment on some issues.  It's not a question of "do they care" it's "do they have time?".  You may have noticed the company went through some major changes recently...

    As to addressing the features that users actually want,  I think their problem is that they're swimming in conflicting and confusing requests from users.  Evernote are developing their product under a timetable to which we don't have access.  If there's a request which can be addressed by a small change in code it will happen quickly.  If the change requires a major rewrite of big chunks of the app,  it can only be processed slowly through the multiple operating systems and various device specs that we all use.  The company has already delivered more updates and bug fixes in the past couple of years than Microsoft, Google and Apple together.  It would be polite to give them credit for that,  rather than just demand a personal update - which would likely raise more questions and argument and take up more employee time.

    I'll give credit to some of the bug fixes. I agree they have been fixing some of the nasty bugs especially int he last beta release and quickly made an update to that. Kudos.

    However I can't agree with they don't have the time. Take Wunderlist to-do-app team. If I'm not mistaken they are just as small if not smaller team than Evernote. But they have one person who is in the comments section and his entire job is to communicate between the developers and users. He is authorized to answer all the users about what the team is doing. He takes as much time as needed and answers virtually every comment, no matter how rude or polite the comment might be. I respect that. And its a two way communication because he takes the user requests to the team in meetings. They have a whole functional system in place for this. And its only one person.

    Heck, with the number of dedicated user in Evernote and people like you who is counting " 16,242 posts"  with no pay I imagine. All they have to do is ask someone like you to act as ambassador between the developers and users. Let them authorize you and problem solved. They have no time is not an excuse I can agree on. I'm sorry. You always have time for things you put first. And Evernote has a long sad history of not putting its users where it should. To quote Henry Ford here: “It is not the employer who pays the wages. Employers only handle the money. It is the customer who pays the wages.” Judging by the financial troubles in Evernote, maybe its time that some decision maker at the top takes that quote to hearth. With all do respect off course.

    Then again, with only 7 votes (voting buttons in the upper left corner), it might not be that easy to identify what features users actually want.
    I think hierarchical folder filing gets more votes. Note: They haven't implemented that either < appalling

    I'm pretty sure EN realized pretty quickly that the voting system doesn't work as noone uses it, and I'm sure they are just as interested in number of posts in a thread if it hints to an interest level among the users,

    Thank you! I was writing precisely that.

    The new editor is live on latest versions of Windows, Mac, Android, and the web client. If you check our forum product release notes (latest is pinned in each individual product feedback area) there are often editor fixes included as we resolve issues or make improvements. iOS is coming very soon, and will have v 1.5 of our latest editor baked in (the others are on 1.0 and will play catch up). PJ may be an alumnus, but we have a new PM managing this project who we'll be onboarding to our forums after we begin to consolidate editor requests and discussions into a global product feedback area. 

    That is certainly nice to hear. Can we expect Heading 1,2,3 and paragraph options and ability to apply them easily by right mouse click and some keyboard shortcuts. I haven't used web version of Evernote for some time now, but if I remember correctly there was a right click menu pop up options for text editing. I wouldn't mind that on Desktop.

    Preferably not English keyboard layout only for obvious reasons if you will add keyboard shortcuts. Superscript, subscript Ability to change the color of the highlighter tool and uppercase only, lower case only etc. The standard tools found in most text editors. Ability to add styles or quote the text would be also nice, but I can live without that if its too much trouble. Although they are available here in the web editor on this forum, and that is just not right.

    Just make it more convenient to write and format text please with more than the very basic set of features. I don't expect full blown text editor like MS Word, but at least make changes to some of the things I mentioned. Certainly ability to assign paragraphs and heading, sub heading etc with a right click and different colors for highlighter tool which would greatly increase the note taking capabilities of Evernote. Thank you. 

    Insert horizontal line is a great feature in Evernote that I use often but the keyboard shortcut is only for English layout keyboards. Its useless on a different layout. (Ctrl + Shift + - ) is not working on my Croatian layout keyboard and I'm sure its not the only layout where its not working. Can that be changes to some other keyboard shortcut or as it would be the best allow users to assign their own keyboard shortcuts. Please do something about that. Thank you.

    I think the title says it all.

    I understand that the present mode exists but it isn't exactly suited for reading. After recently upgrading to premium I have started keeping pdfs and articles in evernote and when trying to read them I try to maximize my reading space. The Present mode does not work with pdfs as I cannot change pages while I am in present mode. 

    I fully support this and agree. Opening up notes in their own window is not as good but its something. Speaking of that it would be nicer if we had option to open in tabs instead of new windows and for light/sepia/dark modes for reading. From what I understand their technology is not that different than one found in web browsers and if students in their lunch break can make extensions for Firefox for example that do that, I'm sure the team at Evernote can give us something along those lines. Until the team at evernote changes their policy and explains to the paying users such as myself why this is not possible or when it will be, I reserve my right to be a disgruntled user. After all they took the liberty to raise prices with no new features added. Seems only fair to demand compensation or at least reassurance that something is being developed and when it is expected to be done.

    It sounds like the employee who started this thread, @PeeJayTee, is no longer with the company. This forum now says that he's "Evernote Alumni"

    I hope this change is not representative of the laudable efforts to fix the editor! 

    Perhaps Evernote can assign another employee to attend to this thread and provide updates and previews regarding changes to the editor? 

    So I guess my first response was my gut instinct being right. Evernote's ability to address the features users actually want is appalling. In some instances they showed good will as by the mentioned user but apparently that is not the same as the overall company policy. It would seem he either acted under different management or on his own. So we cannot really put much hope anymore, that the Evernote team will actually finish their, what is it now "4 year" project with a dedicated team working on it. Ha!

    You'll have to wait for Firefox to actually get their "WebExtensions" up and running, and this is where it seems they'll be posting the information.

    I asked around and some mention it being in the upcoming release Firefox 48 or the one after it 49, which is still a very long time. But at least its something. Shame because I have to use Chrome or opera now only for the Web clipper and its really slowing down the process.

    Apologies for the inferior support on Firefox. We'd love to offer a solution today, but the new Firefox API isn't available right now. 

    I wouldn't mind that it isn't if I had some useful information that its being worked on and when could be expect the same quality as on other major browser? Can you answer that please? Thank you.

    As to what Evernote should be working on - I think they should focus on the high priority items.
    You can indicate your support for feature requests using the voting buttons in the upper left corner of the discussions.

    As to what Evernote should "at least reply to it"
    What kind of reply are you looking for?

    I was looking for some responses from an Evernote team. Ensuring they care and have hear the feature request.

    We'd love to provide you the same new version for Firefox too. However, this isn't possible at this time.
    That being said: Firefox is implementing an extension system this is more similar to Chrome/Safari/Opera.
    This will allow us to release the same version to all browser at the same time.

    Why isn't it possible at the this time? Its been like this for years? Who is in charge to provide answers to why isn't it being done. If you are increasing price for paying users and you are advertising as cross platform than you owe us at least an answer, don't you think? I mean, either say we have stopped supporting Firefox all together which seems to be the case or use the extra money to provide the same support of all major browsers.

    A note will be pinned if you add a Reminder to it (unless you are using list view) Hopefully this function will be added to list view as well.

    That is not what I really need, because adding reminders clog up the UI. It is very impractical and clumsy was of doing something that should be really simple. And with the price increase you would think they are working on it. Or at least reply to it.
