  1. ...sort of I've never really liked the new Evernote look (I'm talking beyond 3.2.0 - not the Yos upgrade) so always stuck to the old client, but I've found out you can tweak new Evernote to make it look sort of similar. This probably won't interest many of you, but it makes a huge difference for me - to both readability and squeezing more text on the screen (I use a lowly res MacBook Air). The grey background also helps me determine the border of images with white backgrounds. Obviously this method is flawed as you can't create or clip new notes looking like this (you'll have to duplicate a dummy note), but I find it better than nothing. In ENML editor, use this as your top line: <en-note style="margin-bottom: -40px; ; margin-right: -30px; line-height: 1.2em; background-color: #f0f0f0; margin-top: -66px; ; word-wrap: break-word; -webkit-nbsp-mode: space; -webkit-line-break:"> Hope it makes a difference to someone.
  2. A highly overdue rewrite. If there wasn't such a lack of competition - and I don't include awful Dropbox synching tools such as MacJournal, Scrivener et. al among them - EN would not be used by half as many people today.
  3. Agreed - it's far from ideal and will only suit those who aren't too adventurous with formatting, but it's the only way to do this that I'm aware of. Though I haven't tried it yet, I don't think images will be an issue - it'll be a trial and error case of trying a certain vertical height that retains the spacing.
  4. Hello, For quite a while now I've wanted to have lined paper (preferably ruled and indented) as my Evernote note background, mainly because staring at large white spaces on the screen when typing begins to hurt my eyes after a while - plus the lines make everything look that bit neater (in my opinion). It's proved quite tricky and took a bit of repeated testing editing an image to get the spacing right. I've seen the request made for lined backgrounds a few times on here, and after achieving this following two days of playing about, I'd like to share how I did it for anybody who wants it. Just a note that I use Evernote 3.2 on Mac (personal preference), but the following method works on the latest version too (you'll have to use the latest version to get the indent whichever version you use). You'll need to upload the image to your own or somebody else's server . 1) Download the following image 2) Copy the note link that you want lined paper on (right click > copy note link) 3) Connect your account to ENML http://enml-editor.ping13.net/ and paste in the link then hit 'edit' 4) On line 3, which should start with <en note .... etc> , replace that line with the following line: <en-note style="word-wrap: break-word; -webkit-nbsp-mode: space; -webkit-line-break: after-white-space; background-image: url(**insert image URL here**);"> 5) Save the note, go back to your note in Evernote This should make the lines appear. Note that I use Arial 12pt, which allows for the correct spacing between the lines, though you may also get away with Arial 13 (though I haven't tested this). I've tested with Arial 12 to a depth of around 14,000 words, and it retains the spacing perfectly - it's potentially infinitie but I have no need to go beyond that word length. 7) If you indent your writing (Format menu > text) it should go beyond the red vertical rule. This gives me this: Of course, stuff like inserting images throws a spacing spanner in the works and is something I've yet to combat. I assume keeping images a certain height will keep everything nicely spaced.
  5. I am not sure what you mean, but I suggest trying Ctrl/Shift/F5 (if it first gives you a horizontal view do it again and it will give you a vertical view). That will activate a "hidden" view that is available to Windows users. I am referring to the current version. Report back if that is what you were hoping for. You have single handedly rescued my Evernote workflow. I felt the same way when someone else told me about it a few weeks ago. I'd actually been requesting such a view for years, long before it showed up on the Mac. Horizontal view never made sense to me the first time I used EN a few years back. Probably because I've always used a widescreen monitor, but just having all of your tags and source urls (I use Clearly to import tons of webpages and like to see where they've come from at a glance) makes such a difference. Think it's quite funny that switching to that view has outraged the Mac users. I'm even more surprised that it had the feature all along.

You have single handedly rescued my Evernote workflow. That's exactly what I meant. It appears that the function is also in the version 5 beta, so fingers cross it will remain for future versions. Thank you very much. Evernote ninja.
  7. You're all meant to be Evernote evaneglists and didn't realise EN5 came out as public beta weeks ago? You must be smoking the same stuff as the team behind the EN team responsible for the RT version. *I* am the one who didn't realize. Apparently everyone else knew. Gaz's reply stands. Evernote does not publish their roadmap or ETAs. Indeed. Still, I was hoping for a semi serious response from somebody who knows what they're talking about rather than a series of sardonic remarks. Guess I'll stick to the Mac version and wait and see what happens with the final Windows release.

  9. Hello, I'm a big fan of the 'slimmer' side vertical view that Mac users have been treated to with Evernote 5, but I see it's missing from the Windows beta. Anyone know if it will be in the final version? Thanks Kane
