  1. The new update (v. 10.5.7 for Windows) exacerbated the problem for me, unfortunately. Not only is there no read-only toggle, but now the "updated" date is not editable as it was in previous versions. I have hundreds of notes chronologically sorted by date updated (my preferred ordering as well as Evernote's default), and accidental keystrokes while referring to an old note now completely and irreversibly re-order my notebook. (As a Plus subscriber, I do not have access to Note History, so I cannot simply revert to a previous version of the note.) I sure wish Evernote would implement this
  2. Late to the party here, but I would love to have this feature! I use Evernote in lieu of a paper lab notebook and need it to have at least equivalent functionality. Lab notebooks are written in ink to prevent data manipulation. Therefore, if I record an idea or observation in a lab notebook and later find a mistake, instead of modifying it or tearing it out, I scrawl in the corner of the page, "Update: This is wrong! See p. XX for correction," thus preserving the original data (and its timestamp) while also avoiding misleading other researchers who come across the bad note. A comment feature i
  3. Just chiming in again to reiterate that I still regard this feature as a must-have. Accidental keystrokes while referring to old notes are a major concern for me. Evernote's familiarity, helpful support team, and convenient image editing features have been a barrier to switching, but OneNote is looking more tempting every day that I can't protect my notes by making them read-only.
  4. This is true for Premium subscribers but not for lower-tier paying Plus subscribers like me. I understand that Plus was phased out this year, but those who were already members got grandfathered in. This is the message I get when I select "Note History": Sorry this side-conversation is getting pretty far afield from the purpose of the thread. I just hoped that sharing my data-loss scare might help nudge Evernote in the direction of adding this requested feature.
  5. Fair enough! I also have personal backups, but noticing and correcting these data-loss problems is time-consuming and stressful. Also, Note History is only accessible in Premium or above, and we can only afford Plus. The read-only feature seems like one that should be accessible at any price point.
  6. It happened: I let a labmate look at a circuit diagram in one of my notes, and he accidentally deleted the diagram and closed out before the change could be reverted. Please implement this feature, Evernote! The current system makes our data terribly fragile, and it's extremely stressful!
  7. This is a great idea. I'm a scientist who uses Evernote as an easily searchable lab notebook that is accessible to (and sometimes editable by) labmates and collaborators, and it's very important to me to have the ability to prevent accidental or intentional modifications of scientific records. The read-only feature would also help to ensure that notes remain in chronological order, whereas now, an accidental keystroke while reading an old note bumps it up to the top of the notebook, making it harder to stay organized. Finally, much like writing lab notes in pen, allowing users to make a n
  8. I am having the same problem when editing notes in Chrome. Happy/sad faces disappear from notes in the desktop client after the note has been edited in any way in the browser.
