    Editing of shared notes

    Which Evernote application are you using? Windows? Mac? Web?

    Dark mode for Windows

    This is a duplicate of requests in the Windows feature request forum. Moving it there.

    sorting notes

    OK. Looking at the API (http://dev.evernote.com/doc/reference/), there is no "Subject" attribute, but there is a "SubjectDate" attribute in the "NoteAttributes" struct (http://dev.evernote.com/doc/reference/Types.html#Struct_NoteAttributes). The comment for this field is: All of the notes that I have that have non-empty "Subject" fields -- as shown in a note list view -- contain dates that appear to match its note's Created date, though it you edit the Created date, the Subject date does not appear to change. I know of no way to edit this (though maybe you can do it in a .enex file; I'd have to dig a little deeper, as there's no explicit mention of it in the ENML docs, though there is a "<subject-date>" field in the exported ENEX file), and how they get populated is a little mysterious, too (some of my notes that have this field are quite old, and some are relatively new). So a little unclear / ambiguous. Maybe this has a prior usage that's gone vestigial; I'm not sure. It's there, but you can't do much with it, so pretty much useless as far as I can tell. Nothing I'm going to lose any sleep over it. *shrug* Postscript: all of the notes that have a non-empty Subject field in my work note account that are mote recent than late 2009 were generated via emails into my Evernote email account. So maybe that's a clue as to usage, at least these days.

    New Web App Comments

    The new web application is regarded as beta. You can switch back to the "current" version using Settings, or via this link: https://www.evernote.com/Home.action?switchingBack=true
  5. I use both, as appropriate to what I'm trying to do.

    sorting notes

    You posted in a Windows forum -- are you using the Windows client? In any case, please see the following article: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313628-How-to-change-the-sort-order-of-your-notes
  7. Unfortunately it's not actually in the Windows application.
  8. Really? In the Evernote for Windows application? Where in Settings? I can't find it.

    Checkbox as Elimination Tool

    Please don't make repeated requests for the same feature (your other request is here: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/112971-checkbox-check-strikethrough-of-copy-that-follows/?page=0#comment-501762). Once is enough (or better still, find a feature request that asks for the same thing, and add your vote/rationale to that. Here's a hint, you're not alone). See the Forum Rules of Conduct, #7.
  10. Curiously, it *is* supported on Android. Why it's not is a mystery. You should go to the iOS feature request forum (here: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/215-evernote-for-ios/), find an existing request for this feature (there's at least one), and add your vote there, since your request concerns nested tags on iOS, rather than nested notebooks.

    Bring Back Reminders!

    You are probably using the beta version, which is known to be incomplete and in-progress. Use the following link to go back to the "current version": https://www.evernote.com/Settings.action?disableIonToPrevious=

    Default font in note?

    Windows? Mac? Android? iOS? Web? In the Windows Evernote client, you can try either Ctrl+Space (Simplify Formatting) or Ctrl+Shift+Space (Remove Formatting). I've had mixed results with these. If that doesn't work, then you can always do a copy into a text editor line NotePad, and then pasting back into your note.

    Why I Just Tolerate Evernote

    Not a feature request. Moving to General Discussion area...
  15. No typo; I was just relying on (faulty) memory. Thanks for the correction. Even so, 10,000 tags is a lot to manage. My count is much lower, an order of magnitude or more. But the higher count does bolster the point I was making, I suppose...
  16. That will only work if your Excel copy/paste faithfully reproduces the original row/column layout. I've seen cases where pasting (at least from the Evernote Windows application) into Excel does not do this. So while this is a good idea, it may not work well in practice.

    WebClipper Simplified Article - Include the link

    Cheers and happy Evernoting, Marc!

    WebClipper Simplified Article - Include the link

    The link is always included with the clip, and you can access it in the note information. In the Evernote for Windows application, the note's link is shown on the right-hand side of the note editing panel. Note information is available via an icon in the editing toolbar. Other platforms may differ as to how to access the link, but it's there somewhere.

    Make a Book Shelf for the Notebooks

    Open Evernote Windows in Notebooks

    Very zen... I think the crux of this is that there's no way to start up in notebook view (or tags view, or shortcuts view, for that matter) automatically, except maybe if the last state is remembered on Evernote shutdown, and restored on startup (which I don't think is true). At least that I know of.
  21. You're a little too late -- @engberg hasn't been with Evernote for some years now. Meanwhile, what is it about the hierarchical tag system that you're not getting? It's a tree structure. Although tags are not like notebooks (a note can have multiple tags, but only belong to one notebook), you can enforce that rule if you want it. And tags are a way to have more categories -- that's pretty much what tags are best at. What's the limit on number of tags these days, 10,000? Seems like plenty of categories. I don't know what a "hierarchy wizard" would be like; is there some sort of "folder wizard" that would be an example of what you're thinking of?

    Open Evernote Windows in Notebooks

    Uh, yeah. My mistake. No, I don't know of any way to start up in Notebook View or Tag view or any other left panel choices. Ah well, it's a good tip, but just not so much for this scenario. *shrug*

    Open Evernote Windows in Notebooks

    Beyond what @CalS said, you can set up a shortcut to open Evernote to any notebook you like, or any search, for that matter. You'll be using the Evernote ENScript.exe utility that's part of the Windows installation. See https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/enscript.php#enscript. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\ENScript.exe" showNotes /q notebook:@Todo One way to do this is the following: Right click on your desktop, and select New / Shortcut. This will open up a dialog that prompts you for the location of the item. Navigate to the Evernote program folder (mine is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote"), and select the ENScript.exe application. Click on "Next". Give your shortcut a name, and click OK Now right click on the new shortcut, and select "Properties" In the Target field, you should see the full path to the ENScript.exe application. Click in that field, and go to the end of text, after the closing quote. Per the documentation, you can add one of a number of program arguments; the one we're interested in is "showNotes". The full syntax is "showNotes /q <search query>". In this case, you'd want a notebook query, so that would be "showNotes /q notebook:<notebook name>"; you'd just type that in at the end of the Target text. For example, mine looks like this (this is exact, including the quotes) and will open up Evernote in my @Todo notebook: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\ENScript.exe" showNotes /q notebook:@Todo Click OK to save it, and you're done.
