  1. Posted 6/2016, it's 8/2020 and still no dark mode for the web client. As a former developer, I can tell you how easy this would be for Evernote to implement. If it takes a developer one hour, that's a lot. I'm amazed that they haven't implemented it yet, especially as the entire software industry has embraced dark mode. Even Windows and Office now have a pervasive dark mode.
  2. Thanks. Did not know that. Will try it. Sounds perfect.
  3. Hi. The Import Folders function works well for what it's designed for. And you can't do that on OneNote without third-party tools. That said, a one-way synchronization (i.e., folder to notebook) in Evernote has benefits beyond backup. I import folders on multiple PCs so I can access them centrally no matter what device I am using. Some of these source PCs do not allow remote access. I could set up cloud drives, but they are simply to slow and clunky to use when working with large multimedia files, for example, or even a simple Word document. Tried using OneDrive and Word 365. Got messy and experienced sync and file-locking errors. Ditto Google Drive, which gets confused easily when lots of files are being updated, and then either syncs the wrong version or even deletes files and refuses to sync them. Box is just unusable with a terrible UI IMHO. None of these services are ready for prime time or serious business use in my experience. They're good for simple file sharing and lightweight document creation and that's about it. They don't scale. Maybe I should try Dropbox. Conversely, being able to simply find, grab, and work locally with the file I need via an Evernote folder notebook is convenient and just works. The only downside is that deleted files remain in Evernote. I suppose the easy solution is to periodically delete the folder notebook and reimport it to optimize space.
  4. Hi, Feature request. I'm guessing it's been requested in the past but in case it hasn't, have Evernote monitor import folders and synchronize deletions, renames, etc. Thanks. RBL
