  1. Mike, I'm not arguing your personal opinion, but if you read through all the Evernote Features & Promo pages, and look at the videos Evernote posts about the many uses for Evernote, it's apparent they do think people should be using Evernote for larger & complex documents. Evernote has fairly sophisticated formatting features - text can be bold, italic, underline, strikethrough, bullet lists, indents, check boxes, sections & subsections, paragraphs; and you can insert images & audio - that's a sophisticated app, except for the ridiculous absence of font sizing in the apps. If someone created a desktop software with all those editing features and *didn't* include adjustable fonts you'd think they were crazy, right? It's promoted principally as an app for devices that also can be accessed on laptops/desktops & via the web - so why in the name of all that's common sensical would you have NOT have features in your app, the principal input device for many, if not most users, that are available in the secondary input device (desktop/laptop)? It makes no sense. They promote it for work, showing examples of various professions using Evernote, collaborating on projects with large quantities of, and varied types of information; for studying and homework in school & college - they do not promote it as a "note" app. And even if that were the case, all the note apps I've checked, free & paid, have adjustable fonts. I do still wish that Evernote would get adjustable fonts, as Evernote is a great app in all other respects and I'd love to be able to use it for work - heck, I wish they'd just start acknowledging the issue. I've give up on Evernote for now, & use Mac's Notes for a simple notes app, and switched to Notability, which had more flexibility and allows for more types of media/types of entries. Even though Notability doesn't have many of the more 'office-y' text formatting options that Evernote does I love having the ability to write & sketch with a stylus, and the export options are good. Now that Notability has a desktop app (& auto backs up to Box/Dropbox) & can keep all my devices/computers fully synced, just like Evernote and have *readable* documents. I'm not associated with Notability & receive no benefits from them, just find the app useful. Still hoping Evernote fixes this issue.
  2. Dear Evernote creators - How many complaints do you have to see before you address this issue? That this lack of a basic feature is life & work-affecting? Complaints with well-explained real-world examples of how this ridiculous lack of a basic feature is significantly limiting the overall usefulness of your otherwise excellent app in professional situations. I can't count on using use Evernote for everything professionally because of this limitation - stopping to scroll down or re-size text every time I need to access my files is just a no go. A warning about the inability to set font size in Evernote is actually written in the the IT dept's app manual at 2 of my clients' firms, particularly in relation to doing quick & dirty presentations from a device. Seriously, it's a thing now. They offer suggestions for other apps, free apps too, that do not have this limitation. Please, Pay Attention!
  3. Exactly. I love Evernote, I use it for work, for my personal organizing, and I have always recommended it to people I work with. But in terms of the mobile version I want to remind the developers that not everyone uses Evernote seated at a well lit desk, and not everyone has perfect vision. I don't wear glasses at all, not for reading or my laptop or crafts or sewing, but there are plenty of times Evernote makes me squint and slows me down. I use it for cataloging and indexing everything - books, music, furniture, locations, cars, receipts, business cards, contracts, estimates - and again, not everything that needs Evernote-ing exists in a well lit room. And not everyone I hand my device to so they can look at something I have indexed in Evenote has perfect vision either. It just seems so obvious. I think Evernote is the only app I use regularly that doesn't allow me to adjust the font. If Evernote wants to be indispensable, and it almost is, then it has to be adaptable, flexible - useable!
  4. Actually Grumpy in Windows you can adjust the DPI of the whole screen which EN responds too as well as menu text, titles etc. individually (all part of windows screen settings). Although this affects all apps which may not be what you are looking for? That is an extreme and disruptive barely-solution to a problem that should be resolved within the app. Adjusting the DPI affects, as you say, every app, all the territory on your screen like menus & docks & icons, and it can make things very fuzz. I strongly advise against doing that via you Monitor or Display Preferences. There are some apps, for people with vision limitations, that can make more subtle adjustments without ruining all your screen elements, but they are pricey & not really a solution. EN can already change the font size within notes, extending that capability/scalability to the structure of the page should be do-able.
  5. Yes, please - I have good vision for a 50-mumblemumble person, but being able to adjust the font would be excellent. What might be readable on a desktop iMac in good light on an easy workday is not so easy to read on a 13" MacBookPro out at a jobsite at the end of long day, especially if you work in the list view. Most apps with a similar layout - like Mail or iTunes or iPhoto - allow for adjusting the fonts.
  6. Have you looked at If This Then That https://ifttt.com/dashboard It's a site/service that let's you create something like workflows/services/scripts between sites/services that don't normally work together. There is a selection of what they call recipes already created or the site will walk you through creating a custom recipe for you. There is an Evernote Channel (there are 57 different channels) with several thousand recipes too choose from -I did a quick check & if you sync your iphone/ipod/ipad Notes through your Gmail account there is a Recipe available to sync Notes to your Evernote account - haven't tried it yet but I use several other Evernote Recipes & they work great. There are Recipes for Box, Dropbox, various emails, Craigslist, Buzzfeed, Etsy, Flickr, Instagram, Pocket, Twitter, FB, Youtube, & more. Take a look, it's a generally useful site even if they can't help with this particular Evernote issue.
