  1. That's very bizarre. Since you're a Premium subscriber, you may want to contact support: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/requests/new. I'm not sure I understand your last question in relation to the multi-select issue.
  2. Hi, and welcome to the forums. I've seen jumping behavior within notes during auto-sync in recent updates, but I've never seen this. I hesitate to suggest user error, because presumably you're being careful, but is it possible that a stray mouse or touchpad swipe has selected the other note? It's possible to hide the note list with F11, in case that might solve the problem, whatever its origin. But that might be more inconvenient than the strange multi-selects.
  3. Hi, and welcome to the forums. We're user-to-user here primarily. Evernote staff do look in and very occasionally comment, but you're not addressing the developers directly here. However, there is a set of forums specifically for making feature requests: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/449-product-feedbackfeature-requests/. You can put this either in the general requests there, or in the forum for the specific Evernote interface you use (Windows, iOS, Web, etc.). Obviously this would be done very differently in different operating environments; I'd think it would be next to impossible on Android. I imagine it could be done in Windows, but as you'll see in the request forums, there's a line.
  4. Please do see the thread linked in my preceding post. Evernote is aware of this issue and working on a fix, but there's no way of knowing how soon it will be ready. Since you're a Premium user, I'd suggest opening a support ticket with them, to encourage them to get on this: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/requests/new.
  5. Sometimes this kind of thing can be fixed with paste-and-match-style (Ctrl+Shift+V), or simplify formatting (Ctrl+Space), or remove formatting (Ctrl+Shift+Space). But some of these will remove desired formatting, such as italics or URL links. But sometimes there is HTML formatting that just won't leave. I don't necessarily see this happening myself. Is it possible that something in the formatting of the Word document(s) may be causing it? You say "or elsewhere": can you be more specific? Websites for instance? There's always going to be underlying HTML formatting there, which can be very hard to remove, except by going through Notepad or another plain-text editor (using the browser search bar is admirably clever).
  6. That looks to me like a table with multiple columns, and the text present in only one of them. I suppose that could result from the underlying structure of specific Web pages. If that's what it is, the simplest way to fix it might be to copy just the text and paste it outside the table, then delete the table.
  7. I don't use tags that much, but I do believe it is possible to do a tag search while viewing a notebook, which should be different from doing it from the All Notes view. But I could be wrong.
  8. Oh, sorry, I completely misunderstood the question! In Android, you have to do a tag search. Tap the search icon 🔍 at top right, then start the search with tag: followed by the name of the tag.
  9. I'm also on the latest version of the Android app, and I have shortcuts on my home screen. I've tested, and I'm not having the problem. The easiest solutions for most mobile Evernote issues are: FIRST DO A MANUAL SYNC!; then (1) turn off the phone and restart it; (2) if that doesn't fix the problem, temporarily change any offline notebooks to regular synced notebooks, do another sync, then uninstall Evernote, reinstall it, and wait for it to download the information it needs. If that doesn't work, then since you've got a Premium subscription you might want to contact Evernote support: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/requests/new.
  10. Tags are applied to individual notes, not notebooks, even in Windows. There's general info on tags, including how to apply them, in this Help article. (Generally speaking, the Evernote Help system is good for basic how-to questions.) In Android, select a note to view or edit, then tap on the tag icon near the top right and choose your tag.
  11. WRT D'Alessio's "sharing the opinion that was being shared in the tech community": i.e., participating in an inane feedback loop. Glad he's backed out of it. I'm an Aretha fan too (R.I.P.). But in this case, maybe:
  12. For me, "basic notes" is note-taking; anything more elaborate than "basic" is no longer a note but a document (given that "basic" can include bold/italics/underline, highlighting, lists, and more).
  13. I know this isn't helpful, but in fact it is hard to program for the wild variety of hardware and software and versions of the operating system that is the Windows universe. Yet obviously it can be done, and since most people presumably aren't experiencing such a drastic freezing and crashing situation, there must be some specific issue on your system. As you know, we're just fellow users here, and it's hard to troubleshoot someone else's situation in depth. I presume you've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and perhaps also Ctrl + click Help, then Optimize Database. Next recourse might be, since you're a Premium subscriber to contact support: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/requests/new.
  14. Hi, and welcome to the forums. We're other users here; Evernote staff may look in, but seldom comment. Since you've got a Premium subscription, and this is obviously a serious issue, you might want to contact support and open a ticket: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/requests/new.
  15. Hi Christina, and welcome to the forums. Check this post from Evernote staff: If this doesn't work because you're on a BASIC account, you can also try contacting Evernote support by Twitter: https://twitter.com/evernotehelps.
