  1. Ah @DTLow - They have been disappointing us for years about this! I've reached out to CEO @croneill and @evernotehelps about twice a year for a few years now about this issue of not being able to sort manually, I always get the same "thanks for your input" go-nowhere response. I would HEAVILY use Evernote if they allowed you 1. Sort manually Also, I've been complaining for a long time about not being able to Copy / Paste text formatting styles - like Bold, Header, Italics, coloured text etc. Apple's app allow this though Edit Menu items, with the simple keyboard shortcuts of ( ⌥ ⌘ C [copy style] and ⌥ ⌘ V [paste style] )
  2. HA HA HA — No. it's not a stupid comment. Disruption, and competition is what drives progress. Companies get real fat and lazy when they don't have to work for it, and ideas get stale when there are never any better ones presented. A competitive alternative to Evernote would either: Be so good, everyone would switch over to it (Myspace › Facebook - for example) or Or provide new ideas and improved efforts, new features, and better design to prevent users switching over to the alternative, thus continuing to improve the product rapidly and competitively. (iOS vs Android - for example) — or… do you not want Evernote to improve really? Because the software is still missing some key features… with "home" and "end" key support at the bottom of my list of things I'd like supported or changed. Sorry Guru. That's how it works.
  3. Jesus. At this point I cannot WAIT for some company to come by and disrupt Evernote. The annoying thing is that among Evernote's minor issues with their platform, the core of the program in terms of basic use and formatting are underpowered, missing critical features, or just annoying or difficult. Of course the HOME and END keys don't work, in 2017, still. UGH
  4. I fully agree. Glaring omissions and deep annoyances: No copy/paste Styles No proper typographic Tab/Indents No manual ordering of Notebooks and Notes

  6. 2016 Evernote. PLEASE — Provide manual sorting options for Notebooks (and Notes). COME ON. This is as essential as it gets for a lot of users. PLEASE. MANUAL SORTING OPTIONS.
  7. It's 2016… I don't think we really need to hear from apologists on this issue. Google Docs is able to implement Indents/Tab just fine. Evernote SHOULD support indent/tabs in the manner of traditional text/word processing. I don't believe this is beyond the means of human ability.
  8. I know that it's by design. I'm sure Evernote could make this happen if they wanted to. Though it would take some work. I I just think the design is bad. Human beings don't practically organize things based on alphabetical systems or when things last get modified. Our notebooks and notes are like where we put our keys or where we choose to store our clothes. We build systems based on remembered location and place association - meaning we put like things together. Currently it's not possible to group "related" notes or notebooks alongside each other or in a hierarchical order. Imagine apple not allowing you to custom order your frequent call favourites list on the iPhone imagine if you had to rely only on alphabetical nonsensical order. Dissalowing custom hierarchy and sorting is bad design because it's not human focused design.
  9. While I admire your passion and dedication, this is of course a tedious and unideal process to workaround poor design. If you ever wanted to add new notes or notebooks or reflow you'd have to rename everything. A workaround yes, but one you should never have to do. So let's hope Evernote addresses this properly. thanks for writing. By the way - I tweeted at the CEO of Evernote about this, perhaps more people should till it's addressed.
  10. I forgot about them - Thanks for mentioning. Stacks are kinda nice, like folders I suppose —but I don't think they alone are ideal. Within stacks, it is still not possible to manually arrange notebooks into a hierarchy or manual common arrangement. Thanks though.
  11. Please allow custom user sorting, or allow notebooks to be placed in grouped "Sections" - which can be arranged into a hierarchy. The ability to group notebooks alongside one another based on their content makes far more sense than letting the alphabet define them. People use Evernote in many different ways, I wish Evernote would respect the large group of individuals who would prefer to sort their work by it's content and meaning rather than just the alphabet. No one would ever organize a book shelf by alphabet alone. It would be insane to mix cooking and history, erotic fantasy, law etc - all based on author or title. Arranging into categorized areas makes infinitely more sense.
