  1. The new beta experience is sub par. In fact, it's worse off. It feels like you made a good product look pretty just because you could. The functionality is less efficient, navigating around my notes/notebooks feels cumbersome, and generally I agree that less is more, but it seems like you went too far with going "less". On that note, I want to make a comment about the experience of trying to use tables. It's very hindering that we cannot edit the tables after they are created. The auto-sizing of the columns is downright horrendous. For example, I use Size-Up on my Mac, and resizing the window smaller makes the table smaller, fine. However, making the window take up the full screen again does not put the table width back to 100%, as it was before. I read somewhere that Evernote doesn't want to take over, or compete (or whatever), with more robust note taking software. But let's be real, I would bet that there are a lot of people that want Evernote to do just that. Why hold back on features that are very helpful (damn near essential) for people that want to use your product? I will admit, however, that the aesthetic look/feel of the beta is nice. But the functionality went completely the wrong way. I'd rather have something that works well, than looks nice. Overall, I don't understand why Evernote is holding itself back.
  2. New behaviour of tables is completely unusable. Resizing the window causes words to wrapp letter by letter. What happened? Columns should resize according to content, like it used to in previous versions. I need big tables, like 20 columns or so. I don't do anything with tables that mess up the content when I resize a window. Even adjusting the width of single columns doesn't work properly. I hope this gets fixed or gets back to a more html-like style. Using Evernote 6.0.5 for mac.
  3. Howdy. I'd like to be able to drop a list of words into one row of a table in evernote, but have that row flow into 3 or 4 columns on my page - so I can see more of my list at once without needing to scroll down. Anybody know if that's possible? Thanks!
  4. Hello everyone... I've been using Evernote for years but have never needed the Table feature until now, and I am running into a few issues. 1. How do I change the background color for cells? According to Help, there should be a Table Properties dialog box under the Add Table menu, but it is not there for me in Mac nor web versions. 2. Am I really limited to using only a handful of fonts? 3. When I copy/paste email addresses or urls, they remain blue underlined no matter what I do to remove their formatting. Any help is greatly appreciated!
  5. hi, the tables used in EN seem to me like a good idea, but unfortunately, i cannot find any useful function to work with them. so my questions are: 1) how is it possible to mark a whole table at once? 2) how can i sort table-rows/lines? 3) how can i add some additional rows/columns after a table is already created? 4) how to delete rows/columns? etc...
  6. There seem to be countless threads concerning table support in Evernote, but I was wondering if anyone else was having issues with tables in the most recent Windows update. I am running 5.6.4.4632 (272632) Public on my Windows machine and can no longer add rows or columns to existing tables. I am able to add them on my Mac. The web version doesn't even give the option (unless I am missing something). Also, hitting "tab" used to create a new row, but that also seems to be broken. At this point I'm using my Mac version to work around the issue, but I wanted to bring it to somebody's attention. If an Evernote employee sees this, and needs more info, let me know. Like I said, I have a workaround, but it is pretty frustrating! Greg UPDATE: I've been playing with this some more, and it looks like brand new tables don't have any issues. I'd share the note that is having the issue, but unfortunately it has private data.
  7. August 4, 2014 @ 1:34 AM EDIT: PLEASE NOTE: Post such as this one, which I originally posted on August 2, 2014, whether made by me or any other forum member, are simply intended as tips that other EN users may or may not find helpful. They are based on our own user experience and workflows. You (anyone reading this or similar posts) are free to use any or all of info contained in such posts, as well as free to alter & adapt any or all of the info to suit your needs. By all means comment if you believe you have a better or more refined way of doing whatever is discussed in the original post, but please don't feel that anyone is trying to say in their original post, what they've described is the "best" or "only" way to accomplish your goals. Your ideas are just as good as anyone else's and the Forum welcomes "How I XYZ Using Evernote" type posts. So please, if you have any tips, tricks or processes related to your use of Evernote, don't be afraid to post them. I'm still a novice myself compared to many, many other users on this forum, and have found that I learn more about EN from reading threads and personal blog posts - - such as those from Grumpy Monkey, a.k.a. Christopher Mayo (and others) on his blog site - than I do from anything on the Evernote Knowledge Base (KB). Which, incidentally why I wrote a long post last week, addressed to Evernote Staff in the post Title, about the desperate need for an up-to-date, more expansive, better organized and more user-friendly KB. (Search the forum if you're interested, by typing "Wordsgood" into the Author field of the Forum Search Page.) I also keep learning more about Evernote and get ideas about how to set up and modify my own databse and workflow by digging through *both* new and really old posts, many of them being several years old. Sure EN has put out many new versions for all the client since those posts were created, but basic concepts and functions are still the same. Some old features may now operate differently, or have been replaced with more efficient ones, or even have been discontinued altogether, but I still find that I can get a lot of inspiration and great ideas from the years old posts. I highly recommend all new users spend a considerable amount of time thoroughly digging through the entire Forum. You could try doing what I did before learning enough to effectively use the Forum Search function: I started on the Forum Home Page, and began reading the individual Threads, going backwards in time, in all the Boards I thought might be helpful. Which, in my case, included: * General Dicussions. * The Lounge * Community Announcements * 3rd Party Apps. * Evernote * Evernote for Lifestyles * Evernote for Schools I am not even a bit tech savvy or oriented, nor do "Lifestyle" mags & websites interest me, and I am not a student, yet those Forum Boards contain a lot of threads that I found extremely useful in learning about Evernote's functions & features, any the many ways they could be applied to my uses cases. Perhaps they will prove just as help for you.
  8. Hello, I wanted to make a problem with Evernote clear. I recently updated to Beta 3 (the latest mac version) so I could create tables with editable cell widths. However, these widths did not transfer over into the web app on my Chromebook so my notes are very sloppy. I did this to use the Cornell Note Taking Method but now it just looks very poorly made. Will Evernote be fixing this anytime soon?? I attached what the note looks like on the desktop compared to on the web app, backspacing on the web app doesn't work it just stays like that.

  9. So I can insert a table of x by y cells. I can insert more above/below or left/right. How do I control the column width? How to I control row height? Is there a way to format the table grid lines? When you search the knowledge data base only one of the results has to do with formatting. TNX
  10. I think it would be a good idea to allow edit tables in Evernote for Android OS (smartphones and tablets). If I want to edit a note that includes images or tables from my tablet, the editor behaves strangely. It seems that this type of content is not supported on this platform.
  11. I need to add columns to a table routinely. I'm using Windows EN. In the table, I right mouse click and see an option to add the column to the right or to the left. Neither works. Has anyone found a way to do this? Appreciate your thoughts... -julia
  12. Seeking improved EN functionaility: Unlike in a program like Word (outline), Excel, Google Docs, or Notebook (Circus Ponies-OSX) - it appears that there is no method by which I can move records in a table ( or in general) up and down, resorting by a tag field, or simply keystroking manually to revise record order. I do not want to export from EN to Excel, sort and reload if I can help it. Is this true that I cannot in EN??? Really no sorting tools in Evernote and Tables?? Surely EN most have something like this in the toolbox somewhere? I am praying for a simple keyboard command that allows me to be move records up and down. In complex tables, which can evolve into a less than optimal order, moving records around either by a tag, number or even alpha order is an essential content process. You can do this in a snap in the programs mentioned above in various ways - Notebook for the Circus Ponies being one of my favorites, which also enables nesting in its native outline mode. Any thoughts, workarounds or guidance would be most appreciated
  13. Is there a way for me to copy and paste tables? When I try to copy a template table that I created in one note and paste it into a new note, only the text from the table is copied and pasted. The table itself is not. Also... is there a way to better control the table and the width of the columns... rather than the column width being automatically determined by the text? I'd like to see more/better functionality with tables and the copy and pasting of content. I create templates for notes that I re-use for projects and I get inconsistent format when I paste and have to correct formating in each new note. Thanks!
  14. I am sure this question has been answered but I cannot find an outright answer. Yes, they can or no, they cannot??? If so how? I am thinking no but really need columns so I want to be sure. Thanks, Tracey
  15. Some advanced table features would be great. I prefer tables to Excel spreadsheet when they are not being manipulated. So, It would be a great help to be able to sort tables by column. I would like to be able to export to Excel without converting to text. I can export to Numbers without converting to text so that is great. It is not possible to paste back into a note a keep all formatting i.e., checkboxes. Basically, adding some simple spreadsheet functionality would be excellent
  16. HI, I am a new to Evernote and am only running the free version. I have looked everywhere but can't seem to find a way to create tables within a note. My toolbar does not have the button that allows you to input a table. How do I add or is this only a premium function? Thanks
  17. i really want to use evernote for all of my school work, but the thing is, when i create a to do list, i want it to be organized so that i can put a check box, number the order of what i'm going to do, describe the homework, estimate the time needed to do it, and write the due date. Without tables, i can't access any of my check lists TT.TT i've also tried looking for templates and stuff, but it just doesnt really work... Will tables be available on android in the future? evernote is GREAT for everything and i love all the tutorials and videos about how to use evernote to the fullest, but making the table feature available would make it perfect! Thank you vsun
  18. Dear Evernote - Love your product, blah blah blah. :-) I use my evernote constantly. Use it for all sorts of things. One thing I use it for is jotting down my budget expenses. I'd love it if Evernote had a simple math function in its tables. Nothing fancy, nothing spreadsheetish. It'd just be nice if I could do a table like: John $100 Jane $200 Bill $300 Total =COLSUM where =COL gets replaced with the sum of that column. You could also have =COLAVE where it's the average. That's about the only two functions that are essential for me. What do you think? Karen
  19. I would like to be able to perform simple addition with a table. nothing complex, just add up all the numerical values in the cells of a column and place the result in the bottom column. Like a spreadsheet =sum function, but it doesn't need anything fancy, doesn't need a range specified, just adds up all the cells in the same column and places the result in the bottom column. If a cell in the column does not contain a number, then it's treaded as zero (as are blanks). It only requires a marker in the cell to indicate it is to contain the total and not another number - it might be possible to do that via the context menu?
  20. so far, it seems EN does not have any native support for tables. if i paste a table from elsewhere, things risk getting very jumbled up... especially once i view them on the smartphone. while there is the option of pasting a table on my PC (using MS Word), i don't know of any way to make a table in EN on my iPhone. i find tables extremely useful for most of the notes i make, since tables are simply and awesomely NEAT (especially for larger amounts of information). will EN ever work on natively supporting tables? and to make it even more awesome, will EN ever attempt to support excel-style cells? *droool*
  21. I just recently began playing around with creating a semi-complex table/chart. I love how simple and basic it is, but, it's almost TOO basic. The default rules are too dark and thick, that, for me, it makes the content get lost and the overall chart look very clunky. Is there a way we can make the rules thinner and a lighter grey? Also, when I make a table, it asks me how many rows and columns. Great, but it's hard to know the entire layout at the very beginning and as I get going, I realize I need to add more. Is there a simple way to add a row or column as I need them without starting all over again? Thanks, love Evernote! Mark
  22. Is there a way to sort by columns in a table? If not, that'd be a very handy tool to add. I don't need fancy table tools like pivots or formulas, but sorting would make using the table for more than basic cosmetic organization of data more useful. I can't even select a column - dragging down a column selects the rows to the right as well. I'm using the desktop app on both Mac and Windows, as well as iOS app.
