  1. Hey guys! Does anyone know what is the font type Evernote uses on the website? Thanks.
  2. I think everyone should say your opinion under that title. I want a more modern and minimal interface first.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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. ?
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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).
  11. 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
  12. 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".
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. I downloaded the new WEB ui for Chromium Browser. I use it to manage my information and data through tagging. The old UI gave an easy overview and quick access to different. I have an extensive GTD working zone where I jump from project to project and keep track of my things to do. With the new WEB UI this becomes hugely impossible. Can I restore the old version please. I wrestled with it this whole morning and I am kind of fed up with it. This new UI, based on Tablets and Android.... , is very very bad . The key is "manage" your notes. Not "Enterring data". Managing notes is managing knowledge. I really really want the old thing back. M.
  18. Hi, I spent some time comparing the new "Web UI preview" with the productive version and have made a list of missing or changed features in the preview (not bugs!). I just want to document the facts without any judgment. Please feel free to add things, I am sure I did not find all. I am going to constantly update this list. I will cross-out the features that will be added by Evernote in the future to the "Web UI preview" so one can see the progress. Side barNo expandable/collapsable lists of notebooks, tags etc. which increases the number of necessary clicks and scroll actions to reach an entryNo drag&drop to/within the sidebarNo nested tagsTags can not be renamed or deletedStacks can not be created/deletedNotebooks can not be created in or moved to stacksSearchNo saved searchesNo possibility to save a searchNo previous searchesNo FiltersNo Multi-Selection tocombine notes,delete notes,present notes,e-mail multiple notes,change notebook,add tags.No remindersNo list viewNo hyperlinks (only automatic links when entering something like http://...)No location informationNo way to print a noteNo inline view of pdf filesNo possibility to display a note in a separate window (I use it often on second screen)Only 4 notes in the snippet view on my Mac in contrast to 8 in the productive version and 24 in the list viewIn most cases I cannot see the complete title of my notes just about 32 charactersLots of unused whitespace. For example when you switch to the fullscreen view of a note it actually just moves the note to the center but does not use the additional space.Selection of text style has to be done after adding textDifficult to read due to lack in contrastHuge fonts take unecessary space.No possibiity to set a notebook as favouriteNo possibility to share a note via E-MailNo gallery of pictures in the noteNo possibility to create tablesNo possibility to retrieve notes history (premium feature)Encrypted notes can not be viewedOpening the site always creates a new empty note
  19. Are you out of your mind?! Beta? - It's not even alpha. Please tell the designer - it's nice, but nobody needs it, because there's nothing to use anymore.
  20. The new Evernote UI on web is simply amazing. Any word on if the desktop version will meet a similar redesign on Windows? http://www.theverge.com/2014/10/2/6893765/evernote-redesigned-its-note-taking-web-app-and-its-gorgeous
  21. The old notes list was nice and compact, but in the new beta there is way too much empty space. This new approach does not scale well. Please add an option for compact layout.
  22. Hi, I just got a pop-up message suggesting I changed to the Evernote Web BETA interface. I must say that I'm extremelly disappointed with this update. Here are a couple of reasons: 1) No reminders on top of notes when I click on a notebook I run multiple projects in Evernote, each one has a notebook. In these notebooks I store project information, research and todos or reminders. If I want to see what I have to do, at a glance, in the previous version I would just click the notebook and see all my project reminders at the top. With evernote BETA that went way and I can't find a way to show my reminders by notebook/project 2) If I need to get to a note, I now need more clicks. Click the icon on the left to get to notes, find a notebook through the gigantic font list of notebooks, click a notebook and open a note. (4 clicks) Previously, I would just pick a notebook from the side view and see all notes and chose the note I wanted (2 clicks) 3) Design is confusing Fonts are huge, the notes list is centered on my scree (21") so there's a lot of weird white space around it. There are not very clearly defined boundaries between different sectinos of the screen. It's hard to tell where the separation of the note title and the note text is. The new note toolbar on the side isn't helpful at all, I would like to see all options at glance. 4) The interface is completely different from the PC/MAC Why completely change something that worked well, instead of improving performance of the previous web interface ? 5) Can't find a way to go back I had just switched to a premium account yesterday. Since I cannot seem to be able to continue using my previous workflow in this new interface, I'm going to have to reconsider staying a paid customer.
  23. Curto muito o Evernote, mas nos últimos meses acabei desistindo de utilizá-lo por conta da facilidade de me distrair com a interface e a dificuldade de encontrar rapidamente o que eu preciso. A interface é muito poluída, dificulta bater o olho e encontrar tudo o que eu preciso. Passei a utilizar o Google Keep, mas ele peca em não oferecer um modo de organização por categorias. Ainda assim, a interface dele é excelente, na minha opinião, para o que ele propôs. Já o Evernote, parece que ficou parado no tempo, com textos para todo lado, igual a clientes de email de 15 anos atrás. Curto demais o trabalho de vocês, principalmente com os recursos que vêm surgindo, como de reconhecer textos em imagens, mas eu preciso de um ambiente agradável, limpo e de fato livre para minha criatividade, como um quadro em branco. Recomendo fortemente estilos baseados no app de notas da época do Mac OS X Montain Lion (no Mavericks, a Apple estragou) e na plataforma de blogs Ghost.org . Se conseguissem mesclar a elegância e simplicidade dessas duas aplicações, usufruindo de UX baseada em drag-and-drop, acredito que seria o melhor "caderno" que já terei usado. Bom, é isso. Espero que minha opinião de alguma forma ajude. ----- Edited Esqueci de mencionar que tudo o que eu disse se refere à versão de browser. Já a versão de Windows, acho que está bem mais próxima do que eu julgo ideal. Estou voltando a aproveitar as funcionalidades do Evernote a partir do app.
  24. I'm making increasing use of folders to organize my separate projects. Within these, however, I will constantly add clips from web, notes for bigger assignments within that project or source material. The result is that my most important working notes become lost in the list. My suggestion is for an option that allows a note title to be highlighted. I am thinking of how Mac folders work, with multiple colors. For now one color would be sufficient. Even if I make a note a favorite, it does not change the formatting of the title sufficiently in my list for quick identification or access. I didn't expect this to be such a challenge, but when working with source materials the note names start sharing certain words. They become subtle differences of each other and therefore very difficult to pull apart. Another option for solving this would be to add a field in the note list frame. In the same way you can add 'Sync Status' alongside 'Updated' and 'Title', you would be able to add 'Starred' or a 'High Priority'. This would allow for a quick re-ordering of the list between high-priority (working files), medium-priority (support fragments of writing) and low-priority (source material).
  25. Is there any way to generate a list of "local" notebooks? I use over 150 notebooks and discovered that two or three had been inadvertently set up as local notebooks which obviously resulted in them not synchronizing. My note count is off slightly from my web evernote data. I suspect there may be one more local notebook. Is there any way of checking without manually going through each notebook and checking its properties?
