  1. +1 I agree that this would be very useful and should be a high priority feature. And... the base framework already supports it! Since Evernote uses HTML as its underlying markup, it already supports heading styles. All they need to do is implement the UI widgets to allow insertion of the <h> tags. To show that it already supports heading styles, I did this test: Create an HTML file with heading styles (1, 2, and 3) and regular text (I used Sea Monkey editor) Open the HTML file with a browser Copy the content from the browser to a new Evernote note. Note that the Evernote editor renders the heading styles correctly Optional: Format > Simplify Formatting (makes it easier to view the ENEX data) Export the note to ENEX View the ENEX in text editor Note the <h1> <h2> <h3> styles in the exported note markup So... how about adding a simple drop down list to create those styles? The table of contents generator is a great idea as a follow on. As an example, Evernote developers could look at the table-of-contents generator in Sea Monkey's WYSIWYG HTML editor (formerly Mozilla suite, open source). MS Word and Google Docs also have TOC generators. Incidentally... if you want to have heading styles and table of contents in your notes, the Sea Monkey editor is an option. You just have to copy/paste the note content into Sea Monkey to edit it. Then copy it back. Not elegant. I attached my HTML test file HeadingTest.html
  2. I just upgraded to the latest release 6.13.14.7474... problem is still there
  3. @jshanker: I tried disabling Windows Error Reporting Service per your instructions. Both before and after reboot I still have the "losing focus" problem 100% of the time I open a note. Thanks for trying anyway! Still hoping for an easy fix since Evernote is not fixing it.
  4. I submitted a bug ticket and got a reply saying they are aware of the problem and are working on it. No anticipated release date yet. Ticket# 2487562 - Note loses focus when editing
  5. I still have this problem 100% of the time I search for a note, open it, and try to add text. Very Annoying, please fix this! Repro steps: Win-Shift-F (search) Type search term + Enter double click on note click the note where I want to edit, start typing => focus is immediately lost and none of the new text is accepted. latest version: 6.11.2.7027 (307027) Public (CE Build ce-43.0.4829) windows 8
  6. or you can export the note to enex, edit it, and import it. In enex format, the body of the note is html so you can edit the table as html. open the note File > Export choose enex format edit the html table in the exported file Import the edited file using File > Import from the main EN screen
  7. Cannot delete, backspace, or cut text within a table. In some cases the keys just dont do anything, in other cases the entire row gets messed up (seems to remove table formatting from that one row) This was happening in the previous version so I upgraded to the latest (5.9.1.8742), rebooted my machine, and still having the problem.
  8. Thanks for the "intitle:" search tip, Jeff. Handy way to get around evernote's terrible search algorithm. Your description explains why the search result list is so bad... they dont apply any of the basic/standard search ranking techniques. Not sure why they dont, there are plenty of open source libraries available for indexing documents and doing sophisticated search result ranking (lucene for example, which is really easy to use).
  9. Search is the most important aspect of evernote. All the nice data entry features are useless if you cant find what youre looking for. I'm frequently annoyed by search results on windows desktop app and iphone app. When I enter a search term, the top matches are usually larger notes with my search term appearing once somewhere in the body, while notes with my search term in the title are down lower in the result list. I typically create a title for my notes that includes words I am likely to search for, so having these way down the result list (not even on the first page) is frustrating. Search engines always rank search terms in the title higher than in the body. Secondly, you can improve search results by applying term-frequency/inverse-document frequency (TF-IDF). Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tf%E2%80%93idf Also, you should be using standard stop words. Common words in the search phrase, like "a", "and", "the", "or" should be ignored or treated as "OR"/"not required" and weighted very low. Currently evernote treats them as required terms and seems to weigh them as highly as other words. Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_words
  10. Another vote for bringing the URL field back to the forefront! It deserves first class status. It should at least have a button or shortcut key.
