    Giving that currently EN treats the entire note as building block, outlining or setting in-note markers is a major change. I doubt we will see it any time soon.

    While the length of time this feature request has been pending probably means you are right... There are several examples where "EN treats the entire note as a building block" is not true.... the introduction of "draggable" bullet/checklist items with the new editor seemed to suggest to me that this feature is coming.  But maybe that is wishful thinking.

  2. Interesting… I have not had that option with Evernote Web on Safari… have you tried restarting your iPad?

    I don’t do a lot of text editing on iPad Safari Evernote, but do use it a lot for changing titles, folders, etc. It is really a shame that the iPad app isn’t more like the web and desktop versions, as opposed to a larger iPhone version

  3. Does anyone know of a service or ability for emails to be "reforwarded" to Evernote, so that anything copied using BCC includes all of the original email's meta data (i.e. date sent, recipients, etc).  

    Currently, if you forward an email to Evernote, it comes in with all of the metadata at the top, including the various recipients, subject line and the date the original email was sent (with the Evernote create date being the date it was forwarded into Evernote).

    However, if I blind CC my Evernote account on an email I am sending to someone else, it comes in with just the body of that email and does not show who the email was sent to.  Therefore, currently it is a two step process if I want to save an email I am sending into Evernote, as I need to send it, then go into my sent items and forward it.

    Does anyone know of a setting or service to make it easier to "re-forward" emails to Evernote?  I guess I could set up a free email account through Gmail or something and set up a rule to auto-forward everything to Evernote, then use that address when copying Evernote on a BCC.  However, it would be great if there was a second email address within Evernote that would do that.


  4. First, I love the latest update... very quick!  However, there appears to be a bug where sorting of columns doesn't always "stick".  It seems that when I change the sorting by clicking on the header, it doesn't stick and eventually reverts back to what it was before.  However, if I change the sort using the "Sort Options" dropdown next to the filter at the top of the list, it does keep the sort.

    Also, while talking about sorting problems, it is still on my wish list to have the ability to sort by reminder date (or any column, instead of limiting us just to Title, Create Date and Update Date)

  5. While I don't use Instapaper, I heavily use Pocket and have a different perspective...

    For me, Evernote is where I save things... Pocket is where I put articles/content that I *may* want to read.  I save a lot to Pocket that I may never get around to reading, or may find unimportant after reading.  However, if I finish reading something and find it relevant for some future use, I will then forward it to Evernote where it gets stored.

    I would not recommend using Evernote v10 as your "reading list"... unless you just aren't saving much else there.  You certainly could use it, but in my opinion the dedicated reading apps are better focused on doing that and they are much better at that one "feature".  I find it very easy to save from multiple sources to Pocket... to quickly load it up and read a few things, highlight and determine what I want to do with it.  I imagine I would get frustrated trying to use Evernote v10 for that.

  6. I am not sure about Android, but there are a number of quick note apps for iOS. I use FastEver all the time… I wish it was available on Mac as it is much better than the Evernote helper quick entry method. 

  7. I use the search parameter "intitle:" A LOT.... when applying a filter to a specific notebook searching "intitle:xyz" returns no results even though there are notes.  If I just search "xyz" it finds the results, but also searches the full note, which is not what I want.

    I am on 10.16.7, and I am not sure if this is a new "bug", but I haven't noticed it through all the other v10 versions I have been using since beta

  8. +1000 on this… I made this suggestion shortly after the v10 update, since the same date selector wheel is used for reminders, and this remains one of my main complaints with v10 on iOS. 

    The iPad would be ideal for my weekly review and rescheduling tasks/reminders… but the date selector scroll wheel is unusable more than a few days in the future. Often I want to set something  a few weeks out on a specific day, but this system requires I leave Evernote to figure out what date third Tuesday of next month will be. 

    Hopefully they add a calendar date selector, or at least show the day of week on that terrible scroll wheel!

  9. So glad this is getting some feedback again. I have been longing for two instances of Evernote side by side since Apple added that ability for apps to do this a few years ago. All the other Notes apps immediately came out with updates to take advantage of it… but Evernote devs were staying focused on getting on the massive build of v10, so I understood why the previous apps weren’t updated to add this. But the v10 apps have been it for a while now and it is really frustrating to still see no mention of this feature being added.

    I must admit, I’ve been trying the multi window thing the last couple days and I’ve been liking it a lot.

    If I were on a single screen / laptop, that’s another story: I’d hate it.

    @scav_on_gelli if you are on a Mac, use "spaces"... you can open multiple desktops and swipe between them with a keyboard or mouse shortcut.

    On the MacBook without a second monitor, one could try to use several virtual desktops - if the web client is no option. Not as good, for sure.

    @PinkElephant I am not sure what you are referring to about "virtual desktops"... but if you are referring to the "spaces" feature on MacOS, you can't have multiple instances of Evernote open in different desktops.  There may be some more advanced feature or app that allows you to boot up two instances of MacOS (similar to Boot Camp running Windows OS), but I imagine that would be very difficult to work with.

    The best workaround I currently know is to open notes in additional windows, and use the method build into the OS to jump between them. Not really a replacement, but better than nothing.

    Opening multiple notes really doesn't solve the problem/gripe since you can't have two separate searches or notebooks open...

    HOWEVER, I have found that using the web version of Evernote in tandem with the desktop window works great... the new web version is almost indistinguishable from the desktop version for most tasks, and you can open a new browser tab whenever you want.

    I still hope that they add tabs or the ability to open two separate Evernote instances on the desktop app... but until then web works.

  12. I posted about some issues I had a few weeks ago, and then they started working again.  This week, I had one email that took a few hours but did eventually show up.  I wonder if the issues/delays may be related to when they roll out updates, as I think it last happened around the release of 10.13.  

    It is very frustrating, as for years I have relied that emails sent will arrive... but now I have added a process to my weekly review where I search my emails for everything sent to evernote and make sure they all arrived.

    I had a customer simply ask me "How do I find a list of all my reminders?".  I think that is a really reasonable search request. 

    @Stacey If that is the main question, you can get to them through "All Notes"... then click on the reminders tab.  However, I have a number of saved searches that filter for different sets of reminders... just keep in mind that with Evernote v10, you can't sort saved results by the reminder date (yet).

    Here are my saved searches for reminders:

    Reminder Due Through Today: reminderOrder:* -reminderDoneTime:* -reminderTime:day+1
    Reminder Due Today Only: reminderOrder:* -reminderDoneTime:* reminderTime:day -reminderTime:day+1
    Reminder Due Tomorrow Only: reminderOrder:* -reminderDoneTime:* reminderTime:day+1 -reminderTime:day+2
    Reminder Due Two Days Forward Only: reminderOrder:* -reminderDoneTime:* reminderTime:day+2 -reminderTime:day+3
    Reminders Past Due (Excluding Today): reminderOrder:* -reminderDoneTime:* -reminderTime:day -reminderTime:day+1
    Reminders Due Thru the Next 5 Days: reminderOrder:* -reminderDoneTime:* -reminderTime:day+5

    Also, I am a big user of titles as my main method of finding notes (mainly driven by one of your blog posts I read a few years ago)... therefore, I am always searching for notes that (a) have a reminder and (b) have specific words in the title.  Therefore, I set up a text replacement through the settings on my iPhone, which also works on iPad and MacOS, where anytime I type "evnrt" (abbreviation for "evernote reminder title") it expands to this:

    reminderOrder:* intitle: 

    Then I just add the keyword I am looking for and it finds the notes with that in the title that also have a reminder.

    Just to point out the sorting by reminder date is available on the desktop versions, provided you are in the list of notes with reminders (reminder tab)


    Yeah, for some reason that Reminders tab also instantly updates the indexing/search results as well.... that is how the main list should work as well, as it sometimes takes several hours before a changed reminder date stops showing up within saved search results for me.  I am not a programmer but imagine the two things are connected (delayed search results and inability to sort search results by reminder date)

  15. While I remain desperately in need of the tabs... I did want to point out that the new Evernote Web v10 is now available to users with high note counts:

    I have over 15k notes and after a very long load time, I find that it is very snappy and operates nearly identical to the desktop version.  I have found it to be a HUGE efficiency booster to have one Evernote search in the main app and another in a browser version.  I still do most of my operations in the app window, but am able to easily reference notes and grab internal links from the web window to update what I am working on in the main window.

    Obviously it would be better to have tabs and ability to open multiple windows, but wanted to share this effective work-around (for me).
