  1. 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
  2. Unfortunately it's not actually in the Windows application.
  3. Really? In the Evernote for Windows application? Where in Settings? I can't find it.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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=
  7. 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.
  8. https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005107-What-is-a-local-notebook- https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005547-How-to-encrypt-content-inside-Evernote No real answer as to "why", except "just because"...
  9. Not a feature request. Moving to General Discussion area...
  10. 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...
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Well, you can always put notebooks into stacks... https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208314158-How-to-organize-notebooks-into-stacks
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
  16. 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*
  17. 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.
  18. Basically, ENML is quite close to HTML, so the embedded browser is the display engine for Evernote notes. I don't know the details, but I'd also guess that CEF is also used to mediate interaction with notes while editing.
  19. Evernote staff have commented on this before. One quote on regular expression search, circa 2010, that I found was from Dave Engberg, the former CTO (I found the quote, but evidently you can't access the actual reply for some reason): @engberg replied to @theill's topic in Evernote API Discussion Also, this more current reply has further info:
  20. Basically an embedded web browser. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chromium_Embedded_Framework
  21. Try unchecking Tools / Options / Notes / []Assign selected tags to new notes
