  1. @DTLow: Has this been moved to Product Feedback? @Bob in NV: I'm checking out Microsoft OneNote right now to see if they offer this option. If so, I will be switching. If not, I'll be using Simplenote instead. @HerbyDE: I have a Mac but it's nice to know that it's available for Windows. @JMichaelTX: Code Block is something completely different than what I'm looking for. I don't want the plain text to have a gray background around it, I want anything I paste or create in Evernote to have no formatting whatsoever by default. If I want Rich Text for a particular note, I, the user, should be able to choose that. Code Block is a useful feature on websites and forums, but I don't see it being useful in your notes app. Thanks for the feedback everyone. Hopefully @DTLow can move this to Product Feedback so that it can be voted on. I have a feeling that a quarter to a third of Evernote users would use this if it were an option.
  2. @DTLow: Yes, that's a good idea. Please move it so that it can be voted on. Thank you.
  3. @gazumped: Thank you for your reply. The fact that this isn't already an option blows my mind bc it's such an easy addition that thousands of users would enjoy. @Brock Justin: I feel the same way and your idea regarding the toggling switch is brilliant! They should definitely add that under Personal Settings. Good stuff and thank you for your reply.
  4. Please up-vote this feature request if you agree! Thank you! Im coming from Simplenote and love the fact that all of my notes are in Plain Text by default. I'm a Web Developer by trade and can't stand Rich Text or Markup because both are awful for note taking. With Evernote, I'm able to attach images and documents to my notes which is awesome. I'm also able to organize my notes into folders (Notebooks) which isn't possible with Simplenote. Being that both of those options are so useful, I'm thinking about switching to Evernote. So far, I don't think I have the option to disable Rich Text / Markup with Evernote which is absurd. I would also like to purchase Evernote so that I can password protect my notes, but I have already spent far too much time fighting the app trying to remove the auto formatting which is beginning to drive me crazy. Taking notes in plain text is so much easier than using Rich Text / Markup in my opinion, and it seems like Evernote forces users to use Rich Text instead of giving us the choice to disable it. For example, I always use 1. 2. 3. etc. to organize my notes. With Evernote, it always indents these numbers by default and then I have to fight the app to work the way I want (I don't want these numbers indented). Is there a way to disable formatting for all documents so that all of my notes are in plain text? I have the Evernote app downloaded on my Mac and have gone thru the preferences. I can't figure it out. If this isn't possible, it's a deal breaker, and switching to Evernote simply won't work for me. Thank you for your time.
