  1. Hmm. My only other thought would be to go into the app's Settings, and look under Camera to see whether Activate multi-shot is selected. If not, the app will use the phone's camera app, which would not have the expected Evernote functions.

    App Login Problem

    Hi Lana, and welcome to the forums. These are mainly user-to-user, so you're not necessarily addressing Evernote directly here, though their staff do look in. That said, I wonder whether the problem could be caused by using a different email address, which might automatically make the Evernote app think you're a new user. Try going to Settings > Accounts, and look for the Evernote account. See if it's indicating the email address associated with your Evernote account; if not, that could be the problem.

    Start/open view

    If you're still here, @justx001, check out the options under the View menu. Perhaps one of them would set up your initial view better. It's also possible to sort the Note List in orders other than chronological: in the Note List, to the left of the search bar, click the little down arrow and select Sort notes by. BTW, this is mainly a user-to-user forum here, and while Evernote staff do look in on it from time to time, it's not a great way of addressing the company directly.

    EN Going Out of Business?

    Just WRT this: in the Windows program (at least the version I'm using), Win key + PrintScreen brings up screenshot cross-hairs, with which you can select a screen area that is then copied into a note as an image.

    Make text file attachments appear as icon?

    I'm on Windows 7, and I do find that Ctrl+Shift+drag-and-drop does in fact attach a text file to a note! Vielen dank, @ChristianJB!

    Annoying message on startup

    I don't read Russian, but I suspect that this is the same problem as the one under discussion in this thread:

    Evernote installation is totally borked

    Excellent news! And in the wake of that ... umm ... any chance of revising your screen name?

    Recovering notes with long, discarded, titles?

    Hi, @Truzzle, and welcome to the forums! That's an interesting use for Evernote and its reminders. The one suggestion I'd have is to sign up for Premium for just one month, and then drop back to Basic. The one month of Premium will give you access to note history (which is maintained for all accounts, including Basic), and you might find your missing notes there--assuming that they had an existence long enough to be synced to Evernote's servers, which it sounds like they did, since they appeared as Untitled in the notebook.

    ANSWERED Evernote Android Typing Completely Glitchy??

    I totally understand. I use Smart Keyboard Pro, for its multiple languages and other features, and I would be really aggravated if I had to switch back to a stock keyboard just to get Evernote to work right. Hopefully, the identification of specific keyboards associated with the problem may help the programmers to figure out the issue. I know that Evernote staff do look in here from time to time, and pass info on to the developers, even if they don't always mention it here.

    So, to sum up: lots of articles and tweets, all derived from one article reporting executives' departures confirmed by the company; no further news; a guess that stories are in progress; ideas about what people "would be" doing or what one "would have expected," including that if "it" (what exactly now?) weren't true Evernote could have refuted it, or planted a corrective story. IOW, there must be something because no one has said there isn't nothing. Neither fact nor logic, just guessing about puffery. And therefore Evernote must be about to expire. Sheeeeesh.

    Disable Automatic Emoji?

    Hmm. I find that for me it's :D, not D:, that gets turned into a box, undoubtedly substituting for some emoji my system can't display. I followed the auto-formatting instructions, and did Tools > Options > Note > Note editing and deselected Automatically format text elements, as @msg5's screenshot also shows. And this turns everything off except the emojis. Sheesh. The only other strategy currently available is the other one listed in the instructions: "To revert auto-formatting back to the original text input: Go to Edit > Undo from the menu bar, or use keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Z." Is there an emoji for :stupid:? If not, why not?

    Writing in many colors in Note 8 (android)

    If it is a matter of typed notes rather than handwritten, there is a feature request for this in existence; it may help to go there and click the upward arrow at the top of the page to vote for it. According to an Evernote employee post there, it was already in their backlog in January 2016. Sigh. If it's a matter of handwriting in color, then that could be a new request to be started in that other forum.

    False notifications

    Please do let us know here if you get a response from Support. Odd notifications continue to be a problem for me as well. Often, if I just edit a note that has a notification, I will immediately get a notification for that note, even if the actual set notification is for some time in the future. It doesn't happen with every note, and I haven't been able to pick out a pattern.

    ANSWERED Evernote Android Typing Completely Glitchy??

    @Ettelaiv and @craeihle, what on-screen keyboards do you use? Looking through the long thread, some of the issues seem to be keyboard-specific, or can be fixed with certain settings on the keyboard in use. Not saying that this will definitely fix what you're experiencing, but it could be worth a try.
  15. Hi, Pelby, and welcome to the forums. Sorry no one responded earlier--it can be a bit random when people have a chance to look in. (As you know, it's mainly a user-to-user forum.) When taking a photo, check the icon in the upper right of the screen. If it's a landscape/mountain-type icon, that indicates it's in basic photo-taking mode. If it's a document-type icon, that indicates it's in document mode (where document edges are recognized). Tapping the icon changes from one mode to the other. Each mode offers different options after the pic is taken.
