I'm thinking about creating Evernote Web Text Editor alternative by using Evernote API, and I wanted to ask community if somebody would find this useful and probably use themselves?
Here's what I think =>
I'm using Evernote WEB version a lot and I'm really frustrated with Text Editor. I do a lot of copy/paste from websites and format that text further, and I really find Evernote Text Editor lacking some important features that could improve my experience and allow for faster text editing. Here's what I'm thinking:
Tabbed interface inside WebApp, instead of opening each new note in different browser tab.
Tag notes by writing hashes inline (like "text text #some-tag text text") instead of pointing to header, finding "+" and then entering tag. Breaks the whole typing experience. Also, when starting to write tag, search by "contains" not "startsWith". If you have a lot of tags like me, it gets hard to remember all the names, easier to find with when searching by "contain".
Better overall formatting experience. I hate that I have to mark text, then find "remove formatting" button, then press "bold", choose color, press "red" etc. What I offer instead if formatting while you write, without switching to mouse and UI buttons:
want to clear formatting? write "/clean" + enter inline and format is removed
want to bold text? write "/b" inline + enter and current paragraph is bold
want to color text? write "/red" inline + enter and text is red.
also, I could provide way to define your own shortcuts and hotkeys for formatting
