  1. I sometimes have to send the content of a note to a colleague, or a client outside the Evernote ecosystem. Often they are people without well-developed IT skills. Sharing from Evernote has become problematic for me because: - They do not want to receive a 'work chat' - They do not want to join Evernote (or any system that is new to them) - They do not want to do anything beyond open an URL of a note in a browser and read it on their mobile device or PC/Mac Is there a guaranteed frictionless way to simply send a note, free from any call-to-action beyond reading it. (I'm sure I used to be able to do this in Evernote, but it seems to have become difficult).
  2. I am not sure I have ever used text recognition of images... There are more important things. Evernote is not doing well as keeping up with competitors, let alone pioneering (as it once did). This spells decline, in today's fast moving world. There are lot of votes aggregating, for important features. No sign of implementation. Previously loyal users will find solutions elsewhere, in this climate.
  3. For me it is Outlinely. I would rather stay in Evernote, but at times I need to collapse/expand, for example, speaking notes. There are other ways to achieve this e.g. jump anchors, but this request has 'matured' without response from Evernote for more than five years...
  4. Bore da, Gazumped, from just over the border! I do use TOC notes sometimes, and it works well when it works, if you see what I mean. When standing in front of people I will always prefer to stay in one app and not at the mercy of wifi or internet or any complication. However, my main point is about Evernote sustaining its development (this discussion has run five years!) and Evernote being aware of people's experience of competing applications and their rising expectations. 'Connectedness' has become a key value. I am not a developer, but I would imagine that bookmarks and anchors would be quite straightforward, working from a x(h)tml base.
  5. Thanks, DTLow, and I agree with your strategy. For many situations... But I keep coming back to wanting jump links in Evernote and not having to swap between applications. I think Evernote needs to be aware of the shift in expectations of users who will now be familiar with navigation in OneNote, Notion, Dropbox Paper, ZohoWriter as well as the heavyweights MS Word, Apple Pages, Google Docs etc. Evernote must adapt and move on, or it will wake up and discover that its user base has moved on...
  6. Having got used to using jump links to navigate in a variety of docs and notes, it is hard to put up with Evernote's limitation. Increasingly I am having to rely on Evernote's competitors which all seem to do jump link/bookmark navigation rather well. So it can't be difficult to implement. I feel this is now a necessity that has grown out of more attention to workflow, rather than a 'desirable feature'.
  7. I need navigation within long notes. The concept of navigation and anchors within a note sits well with bookmarks, which have wider applications. I am posting this within iOS Evernote because navigation is especially needed when working with a small mobile device – and often in a fluid situation rather than deskbound.
  8. I also need callback-type links (not the slower http type that rely on internet). DTLow said: I couldn't make this work on my iOS -- is the advice still current? Could you give a bit more detail?
  9. +1 from me. I absolutely rely on ToC/bookmark navigation within notes for speaking assignments and teaching resources. The workaround using many separate notes and a table of contents note might work for some people. For me, it isn't a solution. Fortunately, jump links are becoming general in other apps e.g. Word, OneNote, Google Docs + Keep, Zoho Writer, Notion, Dropbox Paper, iWriter etc. I'd like to use Evernote as more than a digital filing cabinet. This is a limitation. I would urge Evernote to catch up with the field – and even better, innovate for a change!
  10. Yes, I need this. Evernote is limited for me without TOC and jump links.
  11. That's a really helpful tip. Not exactly what I wanted (to name the link properly) but it resolves my problem. Thank you so much.
  12. Interesting. How would you edit (and shorten) the displayed text, which is the link -- in this note: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s5/sh/cd666a60-c298-41ab-a1ce-c8740bfabaa3/d5bee225aa4a7797436145dfacbc349c

  14. OK, I can copy the internal link, or copy/paste an external URL link address. However, they tend to be long e.g. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vvJiiCTCXBwH3_uuvGbQk9l84N5A1RwxRbQu4fPjOxo/edit?usp=sharing Nobody wants that taking up three lines in a note, or a big chunk of a mobile device screen. I'm sure in 'historic Evernote' I used to be able to set the name of the link e.g. 'GDoc 3x134'. I don't want to edit the actual URL, just name it sensibly.
  15. Evernote is the supreme online note system and as such links – internal and external hyperlinks – are essential to its nature. Links and hyperlinks work fine for me on the Mac and online apps but I can't find how to add a hyperlink in iOS e.g. on iPad or iPhone. I have been an Evernote user for some years and I'm sure hyperlinks were easy enough before... What am I missing here?
