This has been raised many, many times before, but I get it, EN insists on having their logo colors in their app, even if it functionally sucks. That said, since Evernote now lets us choose colors (via the Styles option) for notebooks and tags, how about giving users an option to change the note link color? EN can have the default be their aesthetic, but difficult-to-read-on-white-background light green. And most people would suffer through this terrible default, but power users and those driven to near blindness will have the option to choose a more eye-friendly, high contrast color. Please read the following:
I love Evernote and use it extensively. One of my frustrations is that the iOS menus are so hard to read. Visibility is so bad that I literally have to guess which item I am selecting. The menu I am talking about has bullet points, numbers, check boxes and indent and outdent. I am always guessing because they are so hard to see. The menu color is black and the item color is dark green, so no contrast means hard to see. Hard to see means hard to use. The same is true of the text formatting menu where you select underline, bold, italics, etc. The worst menu item are the boxes and indents and outdents. When selecting these, it actually changes the document, so if you make mistakes you need to undo them. A second problem related to the check boxes is the location of the cursor. Many times I try to place the cursor right after the check box, which is quite tricky. Sometimes you can only place the cursor to the left of the box (which makes no sense to me, since I always start my list with a box and put text after it). If by miracle, I can get the cursor after the check box, often times when I start to type the text appears to the left of the box (before it instead of after it). I use the check boxes a lot. And it is so frustrating that I usually have to go and sit down on my PC and iMac to fix the bullet lists there. I would love these seemingly little usability fixes to enhance my Evernote experience.
I have lots of handwritten notes in light ink that once scanned are barely readable and some not at all. The forum posts I found about light ink gave information for ongoing processes, but mine is not ongoing. The 500 students in China who wrote down their contact info for me are not available to do it again in darker in. Scanning at 600 dpi didn't help much, if at all. The help stuff on contrast seems to assume you are scanning text, not handwriting. BTW, the ability to have these notes OCR'd is optional as far as I'm concerned--I just want to be able to read them on the screen. I can't redo the scans, the notes have been discarded. Can anyone tell me (in simple steps) what to do? I'm a new premium member and have never posted before, so if I am doing somthing wrong in terms of posting here, please be kind when you tell me. Yes, I did search for an answer before posting.
