    EverTool - an Evernote editor helper

    Love is a strong word. I like the app because it lets me do two things that were harder to do before: 1. Write in markdown and get it into Evernote 2. Highlight code. A LOT of my notes are code. Previously I've used both Marxico and the EverMonkey extension for VS Code to handle my markdown/code highlighting needs, and they both work superbly for me. My issue with them though, is that they "lock" the note so it cannot be edited in Evernote any more, which is sometimes really inconvenient. This app lets me get my highlighting and/or markdown into Evernote without having to leave Evernote, and without making the note non-editable. Bonus: pre-defined text styles which I've always wanted Evernote to do. Its the only thing OneNote does that I like better than Evernote. I suppose it's a redundant feature if I'm using Markdown, but I'm not always using Markdown. The mechanism is not awesome, but it works. If you have a better solution for accomplishing the same things, I'd be interested in exploring it.

    EverTool - an Evernote editor helper

    This is pretty good. I've been using it for about 30 minutes. It covers my most common complaints about the editor (aside from the editor just being buggy); The absence of set styles, and code highlighting. Stays out of way, looks good, works as advertised. I have a single complaint or request so far: the fonts you allow me to choose in the styles, none of them are the fonts I actually use. Evernote lets me choose any font on my system, and I'm using the IBM Plex family. But EverTool only gives me a handful of default fonts. If a future version could just hook into the Mac font system, same as Evernote does, to display all the fonts available, that would be cool. Otherwise, great job!

    MacOS 10.14 Mojave causing Evernote Crash

    Yes, but I had to completely remove the existing Evernote before it would stop crashing. I used App Cleaner (because I'm lazy), it wipes out pretty much everything, so you're signing back in and re-syncing from zero. However, it isn't crashing yet, so that's fine. Side-list view has a gray vertical bar that jumps around as you scroll, seems like it's an artifact of the selection highlighting. That's all I've seen so far in terms of weirdness. To be fair, it's still syncing, so bad things could yet happen as it downloads all that data.

    MacOS 10.14 Mojave causing Evernote Crash

    You're welcome. The instructions are pretty sparse, as they were just to job my memory. If you run into any problems, feel free to ask.

    MacOS 10.14 Mojave causing Evernote Crash

    I do it every time, but I'm an IT pro and sometimes-developer, and I'm confident I can work around any issues that crop up. The betas have always been good to me, with very few show-stopping issues. The last two major releases, it's only been Evernote that's broken, and I have 3 alternate ways of getting to that (Windows VM, Wine, Web). As a rule, I do tell people to not do it though, unless they've got spare equipment. Just because I don't want them coming to me when things break.

    Sure, here's my Evernote on it. https://www.evernote.com/l/AAOg86gy6PNB0rUhYWsaLUzfAtCyRsKiIPc

    MacOS 10.14 Mojave causing Evernote Crash

    Something I should have mentioned in my earlier post: Evernote for Windows runs really well under WINE, and getting it up and running isn't hard. I'd forgotten that I did this the last time EN went through a crash-y phase, and re-discovered it a couple days ago, still set up. If the web version isn't cutting it for you, this might.

    OneNote vs Evernote - Real Fact

    For the last 60 days I've been using every note platform available to me (MacOS/iOS), mostly because I've had it in my head that it's time to abandon EN for a variety of reasons. I've spent a lot of time with OneNote because it's what we use at work so I'm already fully comfortable in it. I find OneNote's almost literal translation of the notebook concept to be overly complex, and generally a poor use of screen real estate. Syncing is (for me) slower than Evernote and most noticeable in iOS. Searching is worse than Evernote. EN supports more complex searching and tagging and - the big one for me - OneNote for the Mac does not integrate with Spotligh. So I have to open OneNote to search my notes, where with EN I can use Spotlight and get everything on my computer that matches my search, including the stuff in EN. It's worth keeping in mind that OneNote storage is limited. If you are using it totally free, e.g. no Office 365 subscription, you are limited by the amount of free space you have OneDrive. You get 5GB for free (right?), but if you've got other things stored on there, you might have considerably less space available for OneNote files. It's not both free & unlimited. Evernote is limiting you to 60MB of upload per month, but not capping your total storage, which could be better or worse than what MS is offering, depending on your needs. 60MB is a lot of notes, if you aren't regularly including files.

    ios12 Evernote on iOS 12

    I can confirm it is unusable. That's the price we pay for running beta OS's though. Using the web version for referencing stuff, and keeping all my current project notes in DevonThink. Always have a plan B :) I'll add this: Of all the apps I run, Evernote is the only one that broke for me, and it broke on both iOS (unusable) and macOS (crashes every launch). It makes me wonder what they're doing that makes just their software so unstable. Even other apps that do substantially the same thing, e.g. DevonThink, Bear, Notebooks and much more complex ones (Capture One, Photoshop) continue to run.

    Evernote for Mac 7.1 Beta 1

    Possible bug for 7.1b1: back to crashing every time the window is closed. Stopped doing this in 7.0.3, started again *immediately* upon installing 7.1b1.

    Evernote for Mac 7.0 (UPDATE: 7.0.3, 7.0.2 & 7.0.1 hotfix)

    I have a paid account too, until it expires, and have basically since they opened their doors. I'm completely aware of the pricing plans, I'm not sure how that figures into my comment. I'm paying for software that, as far I can tell from the user end, isn't improving and is in the most recent releases, deteriorating (as I can now not close the window without it crashing).

    Evernote for Mac 7.0 (UPDATE: 7.0.3, 7.0.2 & 7.0.1 hotfix)

    I'm not typically a poster here (obviously) but I just want to say this about your response. As a long time user (Evernote tells me I'm user 169,158), I really don't care about more interesting stuff. I'd like to see progress made improving the editor. I'd like my note lists to stop vanishing - which was reported multiple times during the betas (as others mentioned). I'd like releases to be rolled out that don't crash every time the window is closed (7.0, 7.01). Make some progress on those fronts, and I'll renew my subscription that I just now cancelled; because right now I can't understand why I'm paying more, but getting a product that isn't improving.

    Clip content into an existing note

    It might have to do with how I use Evernote/OneNote. I do a lot of task management in them, because my tasks often involve a lot of notes, drawings, files and such - there aren't a lot of task managers that do those things well, at least, no better than EN does them. So probably 60% of the time that I'm clipping something from the web, and 90% of the time from email, it's intended to go into an existing task/note. Having to manually merge things 30-40 times per day (I always have multiple tasks) is time consuming. Letting it all pile up until the end is often worse. This isn't my #1 request, but it sure would save me a boatload of time. I've started using OneNote specifically because of this, but man, do I dislike it in almost every other way, except for the automatic Styles. That's a great time saver too.

    Native Markdown Support

    Leanote (http://leanote.org) is rocking exactly the concept that would work for Evernote. I've been using it on and off during it's development, and it's quite capable with none of the often strange and awful formatting issues Evernote continues to have to this day. Edit and store in markdown, display in rendered HTML. I bet they could be bought for a pretty reasonable sum...
