  1. Yes, I can see that now too. Thanks for pointing this out, and thanks of course to the Evernote team for fixing this!
  2. Evernote isn’t designed this way. It’s geared around “notes like paper” with manual formats, as well as tagging and search, but not the kinds of standardized properties you’re describing. You could create a note template, containing a table with predefined rows or columns for the various criteria. But that’s not data in a structured sense, still just body text. A better tool for what you’re describing is Notion. You can add properties to a whole “database” of notes, getting an overview in a filterable table, but still being able to open any individual note and add all sorts of body c
  3. @TonyLim, on my support ticket, @AgnesP explained that actually the order on my device is the designed behavior at the moment (though Evernote intend to add a sort order option in time). So you’re experiencing a bug that actually improves the behavior, at least from my point of view!
  4. Thanks for sharing the screenshot! I've started a support ticket as this doesn't seem to be a product feature request as much as an issue, as it's working OK for you. I'll update my original post depending on the progress I make with Evernote support.
  5. Thank you for the reply! That's very odd. I'm on 10.4 too, and I just tried deleting and re-installing the app. Still the same. Are you in the reminders view? Do you see any sort options? (I don't.) Here again is what I see – so you see a different sequence on the same view?
  6. On iPhone and iPad, the reminders with the furthest away date show at the top. I would like those with the earliest date at the top, since they need focus first. Especially the overdue ones! This could be the default, or an option, or something that's picked up from the setting on the web or Mac version – I don't really mind which. But currently the order is fixed at the least useful one for me, unlike the Mac version where I can change the order to one that makes sense. I've attached screenshots. The first is iPhone, the second is Mac. I did do a search but the related ideas don't s
  7. Although it's taking a long time for the unified editor to make its way from the web version into the "thick" clients – iOS, Android, Windows, Mac – it surprises me that more people don't realize that it is on the way already, and works perfectly well in the web version. Here's how it looks there: And you can also use Markdown-style hash characters to create these headers if you prefer (# = H1, ## = H2, etc). They don't stay as Markdown but they act as a keyboard shortcut in a way. Similar to Dropbox Paper. The outlines mentioned in the original post would be very nice. One of t
  8. It’s good to hear that Evernote is hiring. A healthy sign indeed. I think the backlinks request will keep coming back, though to pick on a detail from your post, why would you need a graph database just to do backlinks? Roam takes a native graph approach, but that's because it does much more than backlinks; it supports sophisticated querying. And it was originally intended to do even more than that with Bayesian inferencing. Way beyond Evernote's ambitions I'd say and beyond those of most regular note-takers. Graph DBs are great for understanding relationships across heterogeneous
  9. I don't want to minimize the distress and heartache that many people are experiencing, but I think it depends on the organization as to how well their software development processes hold up (or even improve) due to remote working. We are all strangers on this forum so your point is a fair one without further context, but I do have direct experience of this in a couple of ways. I would guess that the reason for the delay is just that fundamentally re-architecting Evernote turned out to be a far bigger thing than anyone expected. For any development, if the team hasn't done anything directl
  10. The web version already does it. And you can use Markdown to enter the headings if you like (one, two, or three hash symbols). This new editor is supposed to come to all the apps at some point.
  11. I'm getting a bit more nervous. It's awfully quiet (apart from a few people here exclaiming loudly that they don't even want to hear about a new release if it doesn't have their favorite crusty old Windows feature that only they and somebody's dog use). I hope we are not moving into "Dreaming in Code" territory. Fingers and toes crossed now.
  12. I love the way this has been done now, with a little "Move note" icon when you hover over the notebook title. Having the "breadcrumb" behavior on clicking the actual notebook title is nice and I'm relying on it more now it's there. But I do often need to move notes quickly as well, so this is helpful: I haven't tried it on Safari on the iPad yet – suspect the hover behavior will only show up with a mouse/trackpad unless it's possible to just tap the area where the icon would be.
  13. Others have argued by logic (and I agree with them). Let me argue the same point by analogy. Facebook (a bit bigger than Evernote) once tried to make a "Facebook phone". It was really quite nice to use as I remember. But do you remember it? Do most people? There simply wasn't a Facebook phone-sized gap in the market. Mainstream devices did the job perfectly well. (And after all why would Facebook want to limit their growth by offering any significantly better features on the preinstalled app compared with the regular Android, iOS, and at that time Windows Phone apps?) For a consumer
  14. Sounds very sensible to me. I suspect they're not able to be quite as incremental as they'd like, thus slowing them down, because if they update the apps without a fairly rich feature set, a lot of us old-timers are going to complain loudly. We probably aren't the majority of the user base but are the most vocal :-). Have you ever seen a major revamp of any large tool where some previously features weren't omitted on the initial proper release of the new one? Not to mention betas.
  15. I share your hope and a slight sense of anxiety. I reassure myself that the lack of news probably means that everyone is working hard on the new releases. I don't agree with this though: The web clipper is best in class. The new web editor (soon to be the editor everywhere) is on a par with the leading notes apps. Some features are different of course but generally on a par. Bear in mind also that it's operating on a very large scale (itself a reassuring factor), so the recent backend changes are very material; a couple of the cutting-edge note apps have a tendency to lose people'
