  1. I just tried OneNote for the first time too; I'm a very long-time Evernote user, and just the other day I got _so_ frustrated by the abysmal formatting problems in EN (I was using the Windows client, and I couldn't get it to stop indenting after an indented paragraph, and _really_ was missing a Code style, and my bullet lists kept getting messed up) I thought ***** it, I'm going to try OneNote. Turns out ON was _perfect_ for what I needed there; the note formatting is light-years ahead of EN, and it just works. Text boxes, tables, styles, all gorgeous. Drawing works as you'd expect and syncs across all devices (for me, Windows, Android phone/tablet and web). You can turn ink into text and even math (!). Ink mode on Android almost approaches LectureNotes, which for me is the gold standard of stylus-based note-taking on Android, with one giant caveat (below). On the downside: ON's organization and menus are weird -- Evernote is much simpler and search is much better. The Android version of ON completely lacks undo (!!!) which is kind of a showstopper, especially with ink. Sync is slow and not controllable. ON 2013 uses the weird "Office Ribbon" concept so most of the menus are gone or at least hidden, and the whole "MS Office" whitespace abomination. There's almost no customizability the way EN has. And Evernote's web clipper is so much better than ON's it's laughable. What I really want is the love child of EN and ON -- Evernote's structure, UI, search and organization, and focus on productivity, with OneNote's underlying note storage and editing framework. Evernote, if you just ripped out the note editor and replaced it, I'd be _so_ happy. (And yes, markdown support would go part of the way there, but pictures, text boxes, ink are all important too for my "personal memory store".)
  2. OMG, PLEASE ADD THIS - using any formatting is so painful right now! Seriously, I love Evernote & rely on it but without styles and/or format painter it is REALLY hard to do any formatting!
  3. THANK YOU! Like Jamie, this has made it so much easier to create notes for me. (Yes, I know this is almost a 2-year-old thread.) Evernote, please make this a real Note setting in Options!
  4. I have several other apps that don't disappear from the taskbar on updates - they stay pinned where I left them. Evernote also deletes itself from being pinned to the Start menu; basically it won't stay anywhere I put it (well, except on the desktop, but I can never see that.) In fact, even if I open it repeatedly from the Start menu so it shows up in the frequently-used apps list, and then update... it's gone from there too! WTF! No other app does that. This is my #1 (ok, actually #2 -- lack of proper styles is #1) gripe with Evernote! I'm always skeptical to update it because I won't remember to re-pin it, and then it won't be there when I need it -- which is pretty much the whole point of EN. (Doesn't it strike you as odd that you say MS doesn't want you messing with the task bar... so that's exactly what you do to remove the shortcut?!) PLEASE FIX THIS!
  5. +1! Definitely need this. I put code snippets in my EN all the time and they are U G L Y. Markdown + syntax hilighting would be great, an open plug-in system would be even better (though the mobile clients at least need to be able to read plug-in content).
  6. Not fixed for me in 5.0.2. I bet you didn't have indentation in your checklist. Make this on Windows: [ ] Test 1 .....[ ] Test 2 .....[ ] Test 3 that gives "This note contains some unsupported formatting" as soon as you try to edit it on Android.
  7. +1! Single biggest Evernote problem for me!
  8. This is pretty and all, but when I open Evernote (on any device, PC or Android or Mac), the thing I usually want to do is look something up, not make a new note. The only icons on the home screen are for making new stuff. My #1 Android app request (ok, beyond offline usage -- I take the subway to work) is a home screen icon to switch to viewing/browsing my notes. Hiding it in the menu is just silly. In fact I'd prefer a home screen that's just a list of notes, with "new note" in the menu. But that's just me.
  9. I just switched to Firefox 3.6 beta 3, and the Evernote Web Clipper became disabled. I re-enabled it (via Add-On Compatibility Reporter), and it all seems to work fine; I can clip from web pages just as I did in 3.5. Could you publish a new version with 3.6 enabled?
