  1. First: I like EN's solution for a free level because it's basically a very good trial account. Second: Yes, I think a lower tier is needed. Actually I think the "Plus" should be left as is--just dropped to $15/year. No more than $20. I only signed up for "Plus" because I caught it on sale and am still in the process of migrating notes. I may not renew next year if it's still $35. I feel like EN is trying to make up for their mistake of providing too much free service for way too long. Trying to fix a mistake with another mistake.

    other Plain Text ONLY Notes

    Thanks! Also, I should point out that "simplify" and "plain text" were just added back in to evernote iOS in an update this morning. This is a fantastic, very helpful feature! However, it's not a true plain text solution because it is just formatting the text to look like plain text AND the similar "remove" and "simplify" features on other platforms are not handled exactly the same.

    Yeah, that is why it doesn't make sense to me. Evernote can never compete with the formatting options of other applications and Evernote's focus has always been on content (you know, your NOTES), not fancily presenting the content. All the attempts to keep text plain (by carefully pasting and regularly removing formatting) do not work well (and are tedious) because formatting seems to be handled differently on various platforms (ios, mac, windows). And then the moment you paste content in ios, things go really bad. There's probably more ways to do this, but the only way I see is for each note to have a plain text setting. So a note can be "set" to plain text. Then, from any device, pasting content into that note will always only paste the text.

    Yes, I have been doing every possible option available on each platform for years to try to keep formatting out of notes. It's a pain especially since certain situations make it impossible which results in previous efforts being wasted.
  5. Please, please, please allow us to set a note as plain text only--so that it stays plain text no matter what. Currently, all my notes that I format as plain text are constantly getting various formatting when edited from different platforms and from pasting content on a platform that does not have paste as plain text. I am suggesting a setting for a note that makes it plain text only (could even be a whole notebook). Thus if a note is set to plain text, you would not have to use "Paste As Plain Text" for that note and editing the note from any platform would not add formatting. Think: Windows Notepad--pasting content into it removes all formatting.
