  1. Hey guys! Does anyone know what is the font type Evernote uses on the website? Thanks.
  2. Hey there, I have an question about skitch. i want to copy paste multiple text notes and lines form my skitch project to an other skitch project. How can i do that ? thank you in advance.
  3. I think everyone should say your opinion under that title. I want a more modern and minimal interface first.
  4. The design is pretty ugly. Must be a more understandable color palette. White and light green colors, the eyes are exhausting. You need to change the shades. More special fonts should also be brought. Fonts such as "ş, Ü, ğ, ö" look very ugly in the titles.It also does not match the font sizes you used when working in the "Evernote Windows" program.
  5. Hi, something that I don't like about the Evernote web clipper is the maximum size of its input fields: note title tag Scrolling is a pain in these little input fields! This applies to Safari & Chrome, which I use, and probably all other browsers. Please make those fields grow dynamically.
  6. Hi ? It would be more pleasant to read and write notes if we can customize the layout and typography. Like Bear App (http://www.bear-writer.com/). Thanks ?
  7. I'm the ECC in Denmark, known for its obsession with aesthetics and design, so it came as no surprise when users I work with asked 'why can't we have covers on notebooks?' I think it's a pretty good point. The note Evernote chooses to represent the notebook 'cover' is useful but can look messy, depending on what it is. Having a cover could be a great way to add personalisation. And if Evernote opened up the API to third parties you could get some great designers contributing. Imagine the Nordic Range of book covers. Or the Covers Inspired By Nature. You get the idea. Even if Evernote kept it all in-house, I think a range of covers would be neat. Is this something that's complex to do?
  8. I've seen many versions, but I just have to say that the way Evernote looks on a Mac is amazing. The design is so wonderful clean that I truly have the feeling I can control all the mess on notes I am creating. In fact all my notes are in a perfect order and I put so much effort in there to design an icon for every note, by creating the largest picture specifically for a particular note. On the contrast, Evernote on iPad looks horrible. Texts twist, tables change, it all looks wired outstretched. And the worst: multiple seemingly random chosen pictures are displayed in the list of notes. With every update on Mac I pray for you having left the Mac design untouched. Please develop the iPad version in this direction, but leave the Mac version as wonderful clean and predictable as it is!!! You did an amazing job with this!! Thank you!
  9. It would be very nice to show notebook next to the note's title (with the respective "View option"), for example as "My notebook | 30/03/2017 | 1 KB". What do you think about it?
  10. When Evernote is closed, I often use spotlight search (cmd-space) to get directly to a note. When I do that, Evernote opens to its home screen then proceeds to open my note in a new window. I would prefer that Evernote didn't open a new window - just that it would navigate to my note in the main window. There are no preferences that can control this.
  11. Evernote Clean GUI vs Power Features -- How to Have Both There have been many times that some of the Evernote UI designers have cited their goal of providing a "clean UI" as the reason for not providing features that many users would like, like more choices in the Options or Preferences section. I have always believed that it is possible to provide both. Ghostery (a browser extension) has provided this. Perhaps the Evernote UI design team could learn something from them. From Ghostery 7 Over the years, I have observed a number of other apps that have achieved this goal of providing both a clean UI and powerful features/options. I think most of these were designed by previous generations that were not constrained by the design approaches that some deemed to be "cool". Evernote designers: Don't let your imagination and skills be constrained by what someone else thinks is "cool" or "desired (by designers)", even if it comes from companies like Apple, Adobe, Google, or even Evernote. ?
  12. I use Evernote to save all my creative inspiration, ideas, articles, videos and images in what I think of as a digital scrapbook. I would like to be able to scroll through an entire Notebook, Tag or highlighted selection of Notes in full screen, with trackpad gestures on Mac (or right and left arrows) or by swiping left and right on iOS. I know I can use Presentation Mode to scroll through images within one note but this isn't practical when reviewing a large number of images and I'd like to retain the images as individual notes. Currently, to view a number of separate image Notes, I have to jump back up into the Notebook or Tag and click on each note to view individually and they're not full screen. I'd enjoy being able to seamlessly navigate horizontally through full screen Notes as you would browsing in OS Photos.
  13. Hello ! I am new to EN and very excited to get some colleagues invited. I am struggling to find the words. It seems that the "cloud" instantly makes new users think of security problems and privacy issues. A few people have said.."just use dropbox". Evernote seems like what I wanted Dropbox to be. I could never get people onboard with dropbox either. How have you guys gotten users onboard with EN ? I am offering CAD/Drafting services to a small niche of users and I just can't get em to participate. Any suggestions would be great. If any of you have a large, active EN following I would love to see what you're doing. Oh yeah... what's with the Firefox web clipper ? Nobody uses Firefox. Thanks, C Mitchell MPLS,MN
  14. Hello! When I opened my Evernote app today I had a tiny seizure as all my notes were gone! The notebooks were all there but they all showed '0 notes'. The same for iPad version and website version. But then I saw they were in the trash can. I am very sure I did not delete all my notes at once, so how did this happen? Does anyone else have this problem? Does it occur regularly? Luckily, you can restore the notes all at once, tags in tact and all. But still, a strange and very unpleasant surprise at first! - Kaatje
  15. According to some on this forum, the lack of the rather obvious and simple manual-sort feature was a 'design' decision. I doubt it's really that —it probably costs more to add, enact, and maintain a manual-sort algorithm— but if it's related to money/resources, you should consider adding manual-sort to the Premium Services. I'd pay for that in a heartbeat. Anyway, even iTunes —configured for anybody from the most uninitiated to advanced-customizers— has this manual sort option within their playlists. Just as iTunes would lose many users to another app that supplied the clear, obvious, and ultimately easily-satisfiable demand to arrange things as the user wants on the basic level, Evernote surely has and will (me included) lose users and good-reviews to other companies that include this basic option. That's one of the main reasons I will not be renewing my Evernote Premium service this time around. It's disappointing: as seen in the Beta online version, Evernote has gone in the direction of assuming that lessening options in and of itself offers peace of mind of a sort. While minimalism does avoid overwhelm, you should acknowledge the deeper psychological truth: make options bigger WHERE REQUESTED — meaning that you make the environment minimalist, with small buttons that open up options if the user wants. This is the basic design attitude for all mac-inspired folks and I would've expected this from Evernote since they seem to be in that aesthetic camp. This app no longer is useful for anyone who plans to use it for anything related to any sort of fluid and day to day prioritization, project, communication, or even just preferences that all can evolve quickly (the response that you have so-called 'workarounds' to codify every single note is absurd because each time things change as they do in real life we must re-code every time according to the newly-evolved priority levels) Sincerely — Hopefully, V
  16. I use evernote for writing and I want to suggest a feature, namely the ability to compress chunks of writing into a short clickable 'expand text' tag, like you see on some forums on the internet for things like spoiler alerts or code, that way as you're editing your work you can easily chunk the larger text and move around pieces. I think it would function well as another layer, as in notebooks, down to notes, down to chunks (they should have a easily recognizable label as you're scrolling through the text of a note, and changeable colors, editable name, etc, so that the chunks are like an extra lower level to editing and organizing. Anyway, I think you could market it easily as 'easily organize large chunks of your project' but really it would be great for writers.
  17. I'm very disappointed in the recent interface overhaul for the Mac client. It has turned it into a visual mishmash. The web client beta looks far better than the flagship now. Great job.
  18. This issue has been a thorn in the side of many for years now. So I thought that rather than keep banging on about it in various different threads, none of which are specifically about this problem, I'd start a thread dedicated to it. The ability to configure toolbars on almost every app that runs on a Mac has been a standard feature of Mac OS X for as long as that OS has existed. Those who have used Macs for longer than me can possibly recall if it was present in OSs before OS X. But Evernote, for some reason that I have never been able to figure out, bucks the system and insists on having a non-configurable toolbar. And I have never received an answer from any Evernote employee as to "WHY?" On my Macs, ranging from Macbooks to iMacs, so from 15" up to 27", the toolbar is largely empty (a victim of Evernote's unhealthy obsession with "unclutter"). But not only is it largely empty, it contains buttons that I will NEVER use and don't want there (such as the "New Chat" button), and it does NOT contain buttons that I DO want on there (such as "Email Note" and "Print"). So, could somebody from Evernote PLEASE explain just WHY the toolbar is not configurable, when it is a virtual standard feature of Mac OS X? Why was that decision made in the first place? And could somebody from Evernote PLEASE consider changing this ridiculous situation? What on earth is the use of having toolbar buttons that I would never use, while not being able to put buttons on there that I WOULD use? And of course, everyone is different - we need the ability to customise that toolbar for the way each of us uses Evernote. While I accept that those who post here on the forum would be only a tiny handful compared to the total Evernote user base, we are fairly power users, and loyal Evernoters. And you can't just assume that the other 99.9% who do not post would have views that differ from those who do. So, if anyone else feels the same way, please convey your thoughts on this thread, and for Evernote employees who read this thread, please PLEASE tell the powers-that-be that we want our configurable toolbar back. Oh, and the ability to get rid of buttons such as the "Chat" button on the iOS version (iPad) would also be nice, if we turn Chat off in a setting (that isn't there, but should be).
  19. I'll try to be short but the list is long. Rephrasing: I will try to be concise. In summary: This Beta suffers from "cleanliness" over practicality. Seems to have been designed by a visual designer with little care for actual use of the tool. I hope that the developers in charge pay attention and revel against the designer driven interface. It seems to have been optimized for use on a tablet screen browser. Whatever happened to true responsive design? I will try to get time to do a video to show these and other observations. Before you discard my comments as reaction to change, please consider that I am a developer and architect who is rarely OK with the status quo. I thrive under change and understand the need for change: Keeps things fresh and current Allows trying new ideas Challenges previous assumptions Helps you adapt to new circumstances And many others These aren't pet peeves just because I am "used" to the current interface. These are actual usability concerns The current production version has a responsive interface that adapts to the available browser space. If I am on my Laptop screen it looks good. If I am on my 24" or 32" monitors it looks good. I can see my notebooks, my notes and my tags on the same page. On the beta version, I don't see the notebooks or notes when I am editing. Now I need to click several times to go from Notebook to notebook. When using a large screen the note is just in the middle of the screen with plenty of white space around. If I resize the browser, the note area resizes but the list of notes do not resize correspondingly. By the way, in a big monitor is clear that even the notes area resizes only up to a point, after that, it leaves the white bands at both sides. To make matters worst, the icons area at the top of the note, resize to the full with and makes it look as it is not part of the note. The non beta version resizes nicely as a really responsive application. I wish there was a word for wost than wost (worster?) As I start typing a note, the list of notebooks disappear. Sometimes notes are reminders of other notes and I want to see them while editing. Clicking "Done" takes me out of my note and notebook and I need to do several clicks to go back to editing my note. When editing a note, There is a top drop down to select "notebook", Given that the list of notebooks do not appear elsewhere in that page, it seems it is to select a notebook not to assign the note to a notebook. When editing the editing tools are hidden (Bullet, Indentation, etc), Probably for a hard core Evernoter it is obvious, but many new users will not realize all the tools available when editing. The interface does not align to accepted browser conventions. For example: The icons do not have "hints". One has to click on the icons to figure out what they do, e.g. the "attachments" clip doesn't say what it does, when clicking, it opens what appears is another page, Same when clicking on the "i" to get information.if you click "back" on the browser it takes you out of your note, instead of back to your note. If you refresh the page while working on a note, it it takes you out of your note, instead of back to your note Icons break the conventions. e.g. the "Share" icon uses the icon usually associated with Upload. Organization of icons also breaks conventions. If notebooks are a higher level of abstraction than notes, then Notebooks should show above the notes. This is, you normally go to a notebook to go to a note. Rarely if ever you want to see all the notes regardless of organization. Sometimes it is unclear what the action icons apply to. For example, given that the "i" (information) icon on the note editing, goes all the way to the right when resizing on a big monitor, it seems that it applies to the application, not to the note. There is plenty of wasted white space, While it appears to make the interface cleaner, it also has the effect of showing less information. For example, the "Notes" list inside a notebook
  20. Wow this design reminds me of Windows 8. Did Evernote hire the same design team from Microsoft? 1. Take something that is perfectly usable and everyone is used to, and completely turn it on it's ear for no good reason. 2. Determine how the users SHOULD use the product and then force them to think and work like you do. 3. Add steps (clicks) to basic functionality. 4. Make the user struggle and constantly think about how to do use the product instead of the task at hand. I hope this beta is not forced on me...EVER. Just in case, I'm Googling "Evernote Alternative".
  21. I like to run my web browsers in a small window, because I've been using Evernote as a notepad while I do other things. (I'm also mostly a mac user, so I never fullscreen anything.) The settings button is really hard to find if you're using the new web client in a sufficiently small window. It scrolls off the end of the screen, and because of the whitespace after 'Tags', I assumed that that there weren't any more options on the vertical bar. It would be helpful if the (important) settings button were in a more intuitive place, if the buttons compressed, or if there were some sort of notification (a scrollbar, an arrow, an ellipsis) that there were more buttons. I was also expecting the Evernote elephant to take me to some sort of settings page, but it doesn't. Especially frustrating because the lack of a settings button was part of what prompted me to switch back to the old beta... and I needed to find the settings button to do it. Spent about fifteen minutes poking through all of the unlabeled buttons before I could find it. It would have been helpful if there were a bar at the top along the lines of 'you are now viewing the beta, click here to switch back to the old beta', as much for my peace of mind as anything. I've gotten suckered into 'awesome new betas' and been unable to switch back, on other sites, so being unable to find the 'switch back' button worries me. On a sidenote, the new UI is also maddeningly low-contrast. I'm prone to eyestrain, so I usually work with extremely low brightness / F.lux enabled, and my monitor settings make it almost impossible to see the UI. I can't change my settings, or I'll get hideous headaches. For instance, the 'start typing' text on a new note, or the line break between notes are too light for me to read comfortably - they're just visible enough to be distracting, because I'm squinting, trying to see them more clearly. It would be really helpful if they were in a darker grey; I don't think it would make the screen read less minimalistically, and it would be much easier for me to read. Alternately, different colored themes would work for this purpose; I know that I'm an edge case, but I suspect other folks might like to work in an inverted color scheme at night, or something similar. I'm not a big fan of low information density in the first place, though; I'm going to switch back to the old version until or unless it becomes unavailable. I'm new, and it imposes a lot less cognitive strain on me to see my notebooks and notes all at once; otherwise, I need to keep the whole notebook/tag/note structure in my head. I'm using Evernote for quick notes, not for writing a novel, so easy browsing is more important than lack of distraction for me.
  22. Is Evernote ever going to update their software for OSX and IOS? It looks and feels awful. OSX looks like cheap software you get for free when buying a printer. It looks great on the PC and the web so why not do the same for the mac? And this green look with the thin font on the iphone makes it hard to view your data. Your origionl software worked and looked much better. I know you think copying apples style is the way to go but it dosen't work. It looks unfinished. You need to update your software.
  23. I'm aware there are other threads on this topic, but I wanted to throw my voice in. The web app is not good at all anymore. I need better access to my notebooks/tags, and I need to be able to drag and drop. My basic workflow is completely stymied by the new design. Everything I make comes into an "Incoming" folder, and I sort from there. But now, if I am viewing my Incoming folder and want to move a note to, say, my Today folder... I click on the note I want to move, then select the Today folder - but now my view is set within the Today folder. I have to go back to the notebook tab, then find my Incoming folder again, then start the process over. That's about three times as much work just to do my daily organization of my notes, and there are going to be at least a dozen notes to go through every day. In the old version, I could open up my Incoming folder, then just drag each note into the folder it belongs. The whole process was very slick and efficient, which is why I user Evernote and not one of their competitors. Maybe keep this new beta as an option for display, but lord, it seems to be going in the exact opposite direction I would want Evernote to go.
  24. Hello guys, I am new to Evernote and have a few comments on the new (very much improved and very attractive) Beta for Web interface 1/ when I "go to notes" or get to the main page, I am faced with a blank note ready to be written. This is great for those who mostly use their Evernote to create new notes, but for me, it is FAR more frequent I would be wanting to find an existing note... so this is an irritating time waster. It should be an option, "do you want to start with a new note or viewing the top item in a specific notebook OR view your notes with the top note selected?" Also "go to notes" should mean you go to your notes, surely? It does not say "create a new note"! 2/ when I want to find a particular note, I have to do too many steps. If I click on "Notebooks", I see the nice animation, and the result is to see a list of notebooks on the left of my web page. I then have to click on that list of notebooks to see the list of items within that notebook, THEN click on the note I want... It would be much faster to click on Notes or Notebooks, and by default, the newest item, or most recently viewed item, is displayed by default. The attached image shows what I would like to see when I start evernote... ready to create and browse notes. 3/ it would be great to have keyboard shortcuts to go directly to parts of the interface "N" New "M" Notes "B" Notebooks "T" Tagged "S" Shortcuts (why is it not called "starred"?) Lovely though. I will try for a few more days then upgrade to the premium account. Cheers, Mark.
  25. Hi, It looks like new Web Beta Evernote is taking the wrong turn on many aspects of the work. Sure, it is pretty, but the productivity aspect of Evernote usage has been entirely forgotten in the new design. - Menus are difficult to access rapidely as they collapse immedialtly (menus and notes should work together, not separately) - As lists are given too much vertical margin, it becomes very difficul to scan them - context is getting lost (A note is not an idenpendant object. It's often related to other notes in different notebook. Jumping from one context to another is getting very painfull.) - Notebook cannot be favorited (put it back please!!!) - No alt on icons (do we have to guess what they mean?) - transition effects slow down usage - contrast is too low - etc. In brief, Evernote is moving toward a Writing tool (where moving context away is sometimes usefull to increase focus). It is completely loosing its Organizing aspects, which could be a major NO GO in the future, if the Evernote team decided to apply the same principles to the Desktop version. -M
