  1. If you download the newest version of Evernote for your iPhone, 8.17.1, you can turn this annoying auto-bullet feature off: Evernote > Account > Settings > Notes > Advanced Editing > turn List off. (Note that the Notes option under settings is not available in e.g. Evernote 8.7.1.)

  3. Thanks for your reply, because it actually ended up helping, indirectly. I confirmed that I did NOT have Notes in my settings on my brand new iPhone X running iOS 12.1. I then checked on my old iPhone 5s running iOS 11.4, and it also wasn't there either. Because you confirmed that you do have Notes in your settings, I then thought to check my Evernote version on both devices, and it was Evernote 8.7.1. I thought that when I set up my new iPhone X a few days ago it automatically downloaded the newest version of Evernote, but clearly it didn't, because I went to the App Store and sure enough there was a new version, 8.17.1. So I promptly installed that, and of course discovered that I had Notes in my settings now. Doh! So then turning List off under Evernote > Account > Settings > Notes > Advanced Editing per your instructions worked! I'm so happy! Thank you!
  4. Unfortunately your iOS solution is not available in iOS 12 anyway. I agree with the complaint many are making on this issue (in this discussion thread and several others in this forum): I can't tell you how frustrating this auto-bullet feature is and I would like to turn it off on my iPhone. Having all that wasted space caused by an indented bullet on a device like a phone which has so little real estate is bad UX/HCI design (user experience, human-computer interaction). In particular, it is because EN has no way to create bullets that are left-justified and not indented, I need to resort to using "-" (creating a bullet automatically indents it, and then trying to outdent it using the button to move the bullet to the left does move the line to the left edge but also removes the bullet). Plus I prefer the "-" to a bullet on my phone anyway.
  5. My pleasure, Sherry. I'm glad you recovered your note. All the best, Gary
  6. I realize this won't help the first user (from 2012), but this may help future users. If the content you accidentally deleted was on an iOS device (iPhone, iPad or iPod touch) *and* is old enough to have been in your last backup of your device in iTunes, then you can use a desktop/laptop computer application called iBackupBot to recover the lost data. iBackupBot for iTunes on Windows or Mac costs US$34.95, but you can download and install the trial version for free (but it's so good, after I used it to recover my lost partial content today, I just purchased it). iBackupBot allows you to access the latest iTunes backup of your iOS device and access individual files in that backup. Once you've installed iBackupBot, open it and go to the Evernote documents (User App Files > Evernote > Library > Private Documents > www.evernote.com > (some number: mine is 49355362) > content). You will see a list of all Note documents. But the filenames are a long string of what looks like hexadecimal digits and therefore for all intents and purposes are encrypted to you (e.g. ed279ba8-29d1-4d0f-a038-e16f1b326939): they are actually folders, because each Evernote document is a combination of the Note file plus all embedded images stored externally as individual JPG, etc. files. So you will have to select the folders one at a time and use the Modified date on each file in there to help you find your file (that's the fastest way I could figure out at this point to find your document). Double-click any image file to view it or any Note file to view it. Note files are just text files containing HTML code--the language of the world wide web, which is how Evernote implements its documents I guess. So you may have to scroll down any Note document you open in order to find any actual text to look at to see if it is your document. If not, close it and go to the next folder. It may be a long a tedious process, but it's worth it. When you find your document, select all the content (e.g. Ctrl-A, i.e. select all the HTML code in that document, from the top to the bottom), copy it to the clipboard (Ctrl-C), create a new text file in your favorite text editor on your computer, and paste (Ctrl-V) and save the contents of the clipboard into that new text file. Then rename the text file, changing the extention from ".txt" to ".htm" (a web file). Then just open it in a web browser (e.g. in Windows you can either double-click it or right click the file and choose to open it in Firefox). Then select the text you want to recover, paste it into a new email message, and email it to yourself. Back on your iOS device, copy that email's contents and paste it into the Evernote document you lost it in. Good luck, Gary

  8. If you accidentally deleted a note in Evernote on an iOS device (iPhone, iPad or iPod touch), and deleted it from Trash, or even just accidentally deleted part of the content of a note in iOS, *and* that note or content is old enough to have been in your last backup of your device in iTunes, then you can use a desktop/laptop computer application called iBackupBot to recover the lost data. iBackupBot for iTunes on Windows or Mac costs US$34.95, but you can download and install the trial version for free (but it's so good, after I used it to recover my lost partial content today, I just purchased it). iBackupBot allows you to access the latest iTunes backup of your iOS device and access individual files in that backup.

  9. I still have iOS 6.1.3, and the spell check underlining has never worked for me in Evernote. Just when I notice on my own a misspelling and click on that word does it then highlight it as a misspelling and provide me with suggestions. But for all you guys the underlining worked in iOS 6? How?
