    The note title and share bar will stay visible at the top of the page when you scroll through a note.

    @Chantal Leonard, I like this feature but would like to suggest adding a bit of contrast colour to the note title bar when scrolling (maybe a slight greyish tinge like how this quote title and content is being diffrentiated). It appears a little confusing at times. For instance, if I scroll down to a point in the document, depending on the formatting conditions, the document may appear to begin at that point even though the scroll bar is visible on the side. When multitasking between different applications, this may lead to confusion as one might forget that the current viewpoint of the note is not viewing the beginning of the note.

    Instead of seeing JUST my documents in Google Drive, I got a page with hundreds and hundreds of thumbnail photos from other people. Vacation photos, flower photos, museum photos, people I've never seen photos. As I scroll down the screen, I occasionally see some of my documents.

    Does anyone have an idea what is going on?

    I think I have a work-around solution.  

    In order to only see just my information in Evernote's link to Google Drive, I have to add the search term "owner:me" to the search window.

    Must be a serious security breach bug on Google's part. I don't see how Evernote could somehow do something "wrong" to let you get access to other peoples Google accounts.

    That was my thinking yesterday. After doing some more research, I believe the other people's photos and documents I see are publicly shared. At least I HOPE that is the case. Maybe Evernote will comment on this.

    As I mentioned previously, I would like to see some way to only access Google Drive's My Drive (only see my documents and my photos).  Adding the search term owner:me helps, but I don't think the Evernote default should be so wide open to include other peoples' content.

    @jbenson2 & @gustavgi, I just came across your posts and am not sure if you have found out the answers to your question(s) above. I am using Evernote for Mac and I have had the Drive integration for some time now. It is similar to what you are using in the sense that you can view other people's content on Drive. However, I soon found out that all those files were in the 'Shared with me' section of my Drive account. Maybe it is the same case with you. I am not sure if it is a security breach of any kind.

  3. @E-NoteForum, yes , you're right. I would like to report bugs through the reports but I always hesitate to do this even though only the names are visible to Evernote staff. 

    I have noticed that these crash reports can get very long at times. I personally don't edit the report because it just takes too long. I know Evernote allows us to remove the names but for users especially the non-technical ones, it just takes too long. Even though I understand that users' privacy is respected to the fullest extent, knowing that my name data is visible induces hesitation to share.

    Given that Evernote allows us to edit out the names on our own, I too believe they should give us an option to remove the names with just a single button. That might encourage users to file more bug reports. If it's hard for debugging, maybe Evernote could develop a way to understand which notes are related to which without the name. I am no computer engineer but I would appreciate it if Evernote gave us an option similar to what has been requested above.

  4. Hi,

    I was wondering as to whether the theme music used in the Evernote videos like this one was specifically composed for Evernote. I really like it and have tried to identify it using certain music recognition apps but haven't been able to identify it just yet.

    Does anyone know what music it is? I really didn't know in which forum to make this post so please excuse me.

    Does the "Format > Simplify Formatting" menu item in the Mac client solve the issue?


    Yes! It resolves the issue! However, there is a difference when I copy-paste and when I clip by selection. Please see the images. The selection formatting is done perfectly. (It appears like a column because I clipped the text from a newspaper article in PDF format).



  6. Hi,

    I am using Chrome in Mac. Evernote for Mac - V 6.8 - Direct download. All current updated versions. Premium user.

    For some odd reason, I am compelled to open PDF files through chrome apps like LuminPDF, etc since the earlier default chrome viewer does not seem to be doing its function. So the issues I am facing is based on use of LuminPDF chrome app.

    When viewing PDFs online using the app and clipping using screenshot (I need to do this as there are very specific parts of PDFs that I need to read and clip on a daily basis - other workarounds are too cumbersome and I don't need the entire PDF in my Evernote), there is no problem at all.

    However, when:

    1. Selecting text from the PDF and copy-pasting into Evernote shows that there are some clear problems. Evernote does not make the text visible though it is pasted and is searchable in the note. Please see the attachments to understand what I am trying to say. You can even see on the note sidebar that Evernote has recognised the text. If I change the font colour, the text appears but formatting as can be seen in the attached images will not be proper with spaces being introduced all over the place.
    2. Selecting text and using the 'Selection' tool of Evernote has the same result. I believe copy-pasting and 'Selection' tool have similar functionality and hence the issue.

    Please tell me that I have made a mistake somewhere and that this can be fixed easily. Until this is sorted out, I will continue using Evernote's screenshot option.

    EDIT: On pasting using the Command+Shift+v instead of Command+v, the copy-paste works with proper pasting, the text is viewable. So maybe this is an issue of Evernote formatting only.

    Hi.  See https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313388

    Which types of scanned PDFs are searchable?

    PDFs that

    •     contain clear, typed text (handwriting is not searchable inside PDFs)

    @gazumped, I have quite a few scanned PDFs of handwritten notes. Quite obviously, this is not searchable in Evernote. I understand that images are searchable though not always completely reliable.

    I want to know if I will be able to search those notes after I convert the PDF to images. Does it affect the indexing? Also, do you know of any way outside of Evernote to search for handwritten text in PDFs? Please help. I don't have the original notes to scan as images.

    Sorry for asking questions repeatedly related to the same topic.

  8. @BSR, just a suggestion - since a lot of posts are made by new users to the forums, I think Evernote should set view signatures of others option to on by default; else like me, other new users would have to wait for 10 days to do that all the while assuming they know where to locate it.


    Looking at all the signatures now makes me realise that a lot of new posts about where to find support, etc can be avoided or made minimal by enabling this feature. Please do consider it!


    Edit - also, looks like signatures are not viewable on mobile browsers. Please consider adding that too.

  9. How do certain topics become featured like this one with a star next to it? I have checked the forums, turns out number of votes is not the criterion.


    Does it mean that this issue is being considered on priority by the Evernote team? Are we finally seeing it in the not too distant (hopefully) Mac client update?

    @JMichaelTX, looks like we have come a long way in this topic in terms of number of votes. Incidentally, this topic appears to be the most requested (through votes) topic in the Mac product feedback forum!

    Please show your support for the request by voting using the buttons in the upper left corner


    @DTLow, could we request the Evernote team to increase the vote button size or make it more prominent at least? To be honest, I wasn't aware of this button until scrolling through the +1s and eventually finding your vote posts with the image. I think a lot of new users to the forums tend to miss out on the vote button. I think it should be made bigger or displayed more prominently. I know this statement is not related to this discussion but I do not know where to make this specific request.

    Also, I would like this feature to be implemented as well. Voted up!

    Searches will use the standard syntax,  one or more keywords from tags,  titles,  or note content,  or combinations of the above.

    I do not know the standard syntax but I found Evernote's search grammar article for the same (https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php). Now I am beginning to understand how to make most of Evernote search.

    Related to search inside PDF topic:

    @gazumped, I am trying to search for specific terms/phrases in PDF files attached in different notes in Evernote.

    I see that the terms are highlighted in each note. I can easily navigate between the notes and find what I am looking for. However, within a particular note's PDF attachment, the search term may be highlighted multiple times in the file. How do I get to the next highlight within that particular PDF file other than manually scrolling through each page and looking out for the highlight?

    Found the way accidentally - turns out one must click on the note and hit Command+F which launches the search bar within the note which shows the number of matches for a search term within the note.

    I would like to refine my question now - is there a way to add this search-within-note bar to the toolbar or do I have to click on the note each time and then hit Command+F?

    Edit: Does Evernote mention number of matches of search terms in each note? I know that Evernote shows the number of notes containing the search terms and that searching inside the note shows the number of matches within the document, but does Evernote show the search results with number of matches overall and number of matches in each note listed in the search result?

  14. I read somewhere in the Evernote help page that when I do a search, Evernote will also search Google Drive filenames of those files attached in notes in Evernote. I have not been able to get attached files to show up using their file names.



    How do I search for Google Drive files in Evernote?

    To find Google Drive files you've attached to notes, search for:

    • Keywords in the Google Drive filename
    • Keywords inside the note the Google Drive file is attached to


    1. Must I include some arguments in the search field for this to work?
    2. Will Evernote also search the content of the attached file or just the filename?
    3. Could you give me some tips on how to do proper searches? I saw the Evernote help article for advanced searches but (link) I want to know about keys which are not mentioned on that page such as using double quotes to get exact phrase search

    I'm using Evernote for Mac - V 6.8 (Direct).

    Things I have tried:

    • Right-click and select Delete Tag (I get a dialog saying that I can't because it's in a Shared notebook)
    • Drag the tag to the Trash (Adds the tag to my Shortcuts)
    • Select the tag and press Backspace (No effect)
    • Select the tag and press Delete (No effect)
    • Create a temporary tag, drag the unwanted tags to it so that they're nested and then delete the parent tag (Deletes the parent and puts the unwanted tags back where they were)
    • Close and restart Evernote and repeat all of the above (Same results)
    • Close all instances of Evernote (Desktop, web, and iOS), restart Desktop and repeat all of the above (Same results)
    • Sign out of Evernote, sign in again and repeat all of the above (Same results)
    • Search the forums and web for suggestions (Found all of the above, but nothing useful unless I was using a Windows client. And a statement that this would be fixed in "an upcoming update" which was a year old.)

    I just discovered that I am having the same issue. However, this did not occur with another shared notebook. While tags for one shared notebook were deleted, the tags from the other one are not getting deleted. I tried the steps you tried and still did not manage to delete them. I am using Evernote for Mac - Version 6.8 (Direct).

  16. Since note size limits are set to 200 MB per note, I would like to know in relation to notes if there is a limit to number of notes per notebook. I did not find anything regarding this on the system limits of Evernote page but I just wanted to make sure there wasn't any limit as for a particular notebook that would involve addition of regular daily online clippings in the range of 10-20 notes per day, would I encounter an issue in the long run? Or should I do periodic reviews and assign notes to the relevant notebooks? Or should I not worry and simply leave the notes tagged?

  17. I have not been able to properly follow this discussion, so please excuse me if I do not understand basic things already pointed out in this thread.

    I want to know what happens when I combine a set of images of handwritten notes into PDF (outside of Evernote) and upload that to Evernote - will it be searchable? I have subscribed to Evernote Premium. I have taken those images from my phone's camera and have not put them in any software or OCR software. I have them stored in Google Drive.

    Another question - if I combine those images into a PDF (outside of Evernote and again not OCRd) and save it in Google Drive (instead of uploading them in Evernote), can I use the integration to search those notes?
