  1. This sounds like a great idea. Is it possible to vote on this?
  2. I've noticed the same. Not that I've used code blocks, as they we're next to useless (just a gray background color, no code formatting). I'm wondering when real code formatting + predefined text styles are coming. At least predefined text styles should be useful for most users and isn't a niche feature request.
  3. I believe this vote count doesn't include votes/requests from the past 5 years (it was mentioned in another thread). I see that "markdown support" is one of the top voted features. How many people know what markdown is, compared to text styles? Sure, I'm the person who thinks that this specific feature is important but this really isn't such an exotic thing to ask for. I'm not asking to show me a world map with pins for every note I took somewhere in the world. I'm asking for a basic text editing feature which is supported by most other note taking apps. To me it is clear that many people don't bother registering to the forums to give their vote for a feature - if the feature they need is missing, they just quite Evernote and use something else. So I don't really think the votes in the forums represent the overall thoughts about missing features of (potential) users. How do dedicated apps help you if your notes stay confusing due to lack of formatting? And how is Evernote as a app for taking notes not dedicated?
  4. I guess either Evernote product managers don't think this feature would be useful or they somehow can't develop this feature. I believe at least 90% of the Evernote users would instantly welcome and use text styles.
  5. I believe this "feature" never left beta stadium and wasn't developed any further since its release? I wonder if anyone on the Evernote developer team uses Evernote to keep his programming related notes. What this feature clearly needs: support of native input when the cursor is inside the code block (jump 2 or 4 spaces when pressing tab, auto indent braces and blocks, auto insert closing tags, etc. some kind of colorization wouldn't hurt (by this I don't even mean language specific colorization, just any colors for the beginning). get rid of the weird extra top margin which gets inserted along the code block.
  6. I find it absurd that such a "core feature" wasn't implemented right from the beginning or any time soon after. The fact that I can't style my notes with styles upsets me every time I write or read a note that has more than five lines. I would have switched away from Evernote but despite the lack of this feature it's IMO still superior to other note taking apps. I really hope this gets implemented soon. After all it has been requested many times in the past years.

    I'm a long time Evernote user but for some time now I've been disappointed due to what seems like lack of development of the core functionality. So I've tried out similar apps for OSX - as I felt like other apps were getting new useful features faster. Lately I've come across Quiver (OSX app in the Apple App Store, http://happenapps.com). It has a remarkable way to store and work with code snippets. As I've just heard of and tested the new Evernote "code block" feature, I felt like I have to mention this direct competitor. For me code snippets are a main reason to use Evernote, besides taking regular notes - as it is for many people I know. Long story short - many of them, including me, tend to switch away from Evernote, because this functionality (besides of other thinks like missing pre-defined text styles) seems to not be up to date with the competition. Even the OSX notes app now has predefined text styles (title, subtitle, and so on). I hope for Evernote to get at least an equal functionality. Not only regarding code blocks.
