  1. I'm still seeing this problem on pages like this one from MSN https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/italy-gets-western-europes-1st-populist-govt-on-second-try/ar-AAy3ezL.

    (By "this problem", I mean the Evernote web clipper not clipping; some of the posters above are talking about pages not loading; this page loads just fine, but the clipper doesn't work.)

    I uninstalled and reinstalled the web clipper, but the problem remains. When I click it, I just get a green border around the page as if the clipper were going to start, but the dialog box never appears and I am unable to clip it.


    I've noticed this with several sites, not just msn.

    I've tried quitting and reopening Chrome as well, but to no avail.

    Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.4

    Chrome Version 67.0.3396.62 (Official Build) (64-bit)

  2. Some of my shortcut items are tags, and some of these have nested tags underneath them in my hierarchy. When I click on the down-arrow next to the "mother tag" all the babies appear. All well and good. But when I add new subordinate tags to these existing ones, even after syncing Evernote doesn't show these new tags in the drop-down menu. I have to delete the tag from Shortcuts and re-add it to make the new one appear. This seems like a bug.

  3. Upvoted. Please please please implement this. It's very frustrating not to be able to do such a simple thing.

    There are work-arounds; for example the bullet list feature

    Personally, if I have serious word processing to do I switch to a dedicated app
    The Evernote editor / format works well for me with basic notes

    Bullet lists are not at all like tabs.

    It isn't just for long documents. Even simple, short notes like the one OP posted benefit from the use of tabs.


  4. I agree, although it was a little confusing looking at screenshots in a different language. 

    What you're trying to do is perform a keyword search and then narrow it down to only those that are tagged with a specific tag. As you demonstrate, it's not possible.

    I tried a workaround of doing the reverse--selecting a particular tag from the All Notes field and then once these results were returned, going to the Search notes field to narrow it down to a specific keyword. Doesn't work. Once you type keywords into the search field, the tag you selected disappears and Evernote returns a list of all your notes containing that word or phrase, regardless of what tags you have on them.

  5. I agree that Search in Evernote for Mac is terrible. I don't get the syncing problem you experience, but the search results themselves are often mystifying.

    For example, I can type into the search box an exact phrase I use in the title or in the body of a note, and sometimes the note containing this appears way down in the search results. One would think it would appear at the top.

    I have taken to obsessively precise tagging of notes to try and find things through tag searches instead of keyword searches.

  6. As of now, Evernote on the Mac will only show me my tags that begin with the word "cat" when I type that in. It won’t show me the tags I've already created for "black cat" or "siamese cat", for example. (When adding tags to a note, not when searching.)

    I am sure people will suggest that I make all tags follow this type of format: cat black, cat siamese, etc. I have run into problems with longer words and phrases, especially when tagging a note on my phone. Longer tags don't appear in their entirety, so sometimes you can't tell what specific tag you are adding, only that it's one of your "cat" tags, so to speak.

    I think there must be some name for this kind of suggested-search behavior in computerese, but I have no idea what that is.


  7. Yes, we really need this. And no, dragging down doesn't work. It's really frustrating on a small screen not to have an easy way to make the keyboard go away. The iPad version has a 'hide keyboard' button under Shift. We need something like this for the iPhone version.

    Seems to me like on the iPhone they could put a button above the keyboard where the icons for camera, microphone, drawing, and attachment appear.

  8. I came here today to see if anyone had asked for this feature. If not, I was going to start a thread on it.


    While I thank people who gave workaround ideas, they are not as good as having sections within a note you can jump to through links. Separate notes, even with a TOC, are much more unwieldy, especially when it's a document you are constantly adding to. With separate notes, you then have to add each new note to the TOC and then add a back link to the TOC from the new note, so that you can quickly hop between the various "sections". I do this constantly, because it's currently the only way to achieve something close to what I want, but I would much rather have links to take me to different sections within a note.

    I've seen similar things on webpages. I think there must be a way to implement this in Evernote.
