  1. PROBLEM: Sometimes I have multiple PDFs, images, documents, spreadsheets, etc. on a related topic. I want to keep related documents grouped together but adding them all to one note makes it extremely difficult to find what is needed because the documents all seem to run together. SOLUTION: Make it easy to place a number of documents in one note in condensed format. Contents should display as a sort of outline of all contents contained therein. Will promote increased organization and easy access. Create collapsible sections within a note. Each collapsible section has a label/title to identify a sub-topic in the note. Collapsible sections function like grouping rows in MS Excel allowing you to quickly collapse and expand similar data to create more useful views. Expand / Collapse button (triangle) left of the title to view or hide section contents. Within the section, individual documents are displayed with a title and image of the first document page. Document display concept is similar to how Windows Explorer displays multiple documents in a folder. You see an image of the first page and a label (could be the document name OR user created title). Moving collapsible sections. In cases where a note contains one document. Create a collapsible section containing the document. Right-Click on the collapsible section and select "Move" to move the section from one note to another note. Within a note you can drag and drop documents between collapsible sections via their document image. Sections can be reordered by dragging and dropping the section title. Viewing Content Single click on document image to expand and read it. Double-click to open it in a separate window or app.
  2. I think it would be nice to be able to start typing a new notes tile name immediately after clicking the "New note" button (desktop version). Now you have to klick the title field first. I always forget this and it's quite annoying.
  3. Up to ver 6.5.4 searching was wonderful! entering a search term in the search box at the top of the notes stack, would list the notes that contained the search terms. clicking on a note would display the note ** and slide down the note to the location of the 1st instance of the search term **. Then the next version came out. Since then, the search merely displays the note, but the slider remains at the top of the page. A "profile setting" would be good. this way mobile phones would scroll around... but desktops, laptops, tables would be free to do so. Please restore this functionality. I've installed each update since then, only to uninstall them and re-install 6.5.4.
  4. Having a way to color code or flag notes in the desktop version of Evernote would be helpful. See attached image for example. Even being able to flag a note or highlight a note in a single color or with a distinctive marker of some sort would suffice. But having different color options would be ideal.
  5. Hello, I have recently started using Evernote. I have installed its app on android and on desktop (Windows). 2 days ago, I uploaded 2 images to a note through my android app, but when I opened the desktop version, everything got synced to it except the images. In place of images it is showing generic image icon (similar to one we see if a page load is incomplete in web browser). Can anybody help me with it? I was thinking to move on Evernote but found this bug. When searched web about this issue, I saw another usinf facing this but his problem seems resolved with some personal help from Evernote team. Please help me! Thanks in advance.
  6. Hi! My understanding is there should be a way to use Evernote to read text back in a computer voice (so I can hear what I have written). However, I cannot for the life of me find it, and I have been looking. I can get my Windows PC to take dictation, no problem, except that is the exact opposite of what I am looking for and it's got nothing to do with Evernote, anyway. So, thoughts? Or at least sympathy? Many thanks, in advance.

    "Could not connect to server" on Macbook

    I've tried restarting my laptop, deleting and reinstalling the app (multiple times), but although my internet + evernote is working on Safari, I keep receiving this message on the app.

    Font filter

    hi, in the Windows desktop client for Evernote I would like to filter my font list. E.g. only show a list of selected fonts in the font combo when editing a note. Or sort my selected font on top of the LONG list of font in Windows. Yes I know I can uninstall font in Windows but I don't like to start doing that. And seeing 250+ font in the combo when I only need 2-5 is a BIG distraction when editing a note in Evernote.
  9. Hi, I used to be able to share Local Notes via email until updating to Evernote for Mac 6.13.1. I used to right click on the note in column/list of snippets, which brought up the contextual menu. I then selected Sharing, More Sharing and Email a Copy, which brought up a mail window and allowed me to send a copy of the Local Note. I did this countless times despite the note being a Local Note. When seeking help on this, I was told that this function never existed. Really? Was it some kind of fluke in my case? Am I the only person who was able to do this? I have had Local Notes that have remained private for almost a year, and yet I used to email myself and a few others copies of the Local notes each time I updated them. I would be glad to hear of other people's experiences with this
  10. Dear all, I have a very simple request: To switch from the title of the note to the tags field by using <tab> Right now both <tab> and <enter> take you from the title to the body of the note, skipping the tags field on the windows or mac client. I know that the shortcut <ctrl>+<alt>+<T> does bring up the tags but as a pop up field.
  11. It would be of great help to be able to see a list of all shared notes and notebooks in one place.

    Reference to another note

    Is there a way to put in one note a reference of another note. And when clicked, that reference to send me to that referenced note? (ex: like when we create a table of contents)
  13. Text styling (Titles, Subtitles, differing levels of headers, body, quotes) as it's found in the mobile version of Evernote, Google Docs, etc. would be super helpful in speeding up my note taking (less time formatting with Bold, adjusting text size, etc.) while aiding taxonomy and keeping a more consistent styling throughout my notes. Allowing user overrides for the styling is a nice touch, but not necessary.
  14. I'm not blaming Evernote itself, but on all my Windows PCs from seven to ten, Evernote always crashes randomly during cut or copy events, on an average of about every 15-20 Copy or Cuts, in may crash in the foreground when during a copy/cut itself in the application itself, or may just crash completely in a background, when I cut/copy on another program. This happens on every Windows Machine I have Evernote installed on from Windows 7, 8 and 10. So I presume from my computing habits I must be having/using some program running interferring that causes this. But I have been months trying to pinpoint the problem. The crashing tends to happen more often if I'm playing a game, I don't get any send to evernote crash box either, its just minimizes , closes all the windows it had open and everything is gone (expect for the Clipper on in the system tray) , so i restart Evernote and got to relocate the note I was in all over again. Quite unreliable and irriating if I had serveral important notes on serpeate windows at once So I posted here and curious if anyone has an ideas or even has that problem I have.

    All menus grayed out

    When I start Evernote, all my menus are grayed out and there is no "notes" window. The menu bar still allows me to capture screen shots on my Mac, but after that, nothing. Even clicking on Preferences doesn't bring up anything. Any ideas?
  16. Hello there Reminders on the desktop clients (at least I know about windows) are lacking some sort of notification, that is clearly visible when it matters. I mean, what is the point of setting up a time critcal reminder (since you have the option to do so) and not have it notify you in any useful way, when you are working at your desktop. Therefore I am suggesting some kind of notification that will stay visible until you deal with it. I would see several ways how this might be implemented (of course you should be able to turn it on or off). A Popup you have to click to remove it or a new menu option on the left where all reminders are visible and when one of the times is reached, the option turns red or something. or some other clearly visible way. Thanks and kind regards, Leu
  17. Hi I am not sure if evernote stores every file I attached to notes in my computer locally, or all data is uploaded to cloud. Latter in my position would be so nice, so I can preserve much more HDD capacity for my other needs.
  18. Evernote for desktop generates a duplicate icon in the taskbar in addition to the pinned program icon. It ends up making my taskbar look very cluttered when I have Evernote open; I'd appreciate a more seamless, integrated look. Instead of adding a blue bar to the bottom of the pinned icon, a duplicate icon with the blue bar appears alongside the original. From what I have read, this is an incompatibility issue that can only be resolved by the developer (https://www.ghacks.net/2015/08/04/fix-duplicate-icon-issues-on-the-windows-taskbar/).
  19. Hi, I installed a desktop app on Win7 32b, and my text in notes is displayed incorrectly. I couldn't read one word from a note. However, It works correctly in a browser, a mobile app, and another laptop. Please see screenshots. I can recognize text only on a large zoom (screenshot 3). I use the last version of Evernote_6.7.4.5741
  20. The last few days I have been unable to access Evernote online on my desktop. I can use it on my iPhone without problems, but on the desktop after I enter my login details it stays loading the login screen without getting any further (https://www.evernote.com/Home.action?login=true). Okay, as I was typing this, it actually signed me in in another tab (but didn't other days after leaving it this long) However, it is only showing the contents of one note, and doesn't have my list of other notes, so I still can't use it for what I'm needing. Evernote in my iPhone app still has all the data.
  21. I have the free Evernote account; I am running Mavericks on my iMac and iOS 7 on my iPad and iPhone. I haven't been able to find a clear explanation of where my data is stored and where it is not stored. I understand that all my notes are permanently stored (unless I delete them) on the Evernote servers and that I can access them through my browser if I want to. But: (1) Using the Evernote desktop app on my iMac, I seem to be able to access my notes very quickly, which suggests that copies of all my notes are also stored on my hard drive, updated when I sync, and where I can access them even when I am not connected to the Internet. Is this correct? (2) When I access notes from my mobile device they must be downloaded from the Evernote servers. Does this mean that they are only stored temporarily on my mobile device while I am viewing or editing them? When do these temporary copies disappear from the memory of my mobile device? (3) I understand that the Premium account will allow me to maintain copies of all my notes on my mobile devices at all times so that I can access them even when I am not connected to the Internet. Is this correct? It would be helpful to have this information clearly presented on the Evernote support site. Perhaps it is; I haven't been able to find it. In the meantime, can anybody provide answers to these questions? Thanks.
  22. On the WebApp/Browser version of Evernote, I can use a single backtick: ` before and after a snippet to turn it into a code snippet, just like Markdown/Zendesk, etc. Works great, even inside a bulleted list. I can also select a block of text, and hit the Code Block button, or use three backticks: ``` before/after the text block, and turn it into a code block, again even if it's inside a bulleted list. I can't do any of this in the Windows version of Evernote, which is extremely odd to me that the web client is more fully featured and easier to use?! In the Desktop client, backticks seems to do nothing - they don't trigger any formatting. I can select a block of text, but I can't turn it into a code block, unless it's NOT in a bulleted list?! Worst of all, code snippets seem to be ignored in the Windows version - even if they look/work ok in the WebApp interface! Things are slightly better in the Android app, since at least it does show code snippets I've previously created. Thus I've uninstalled the desktop version as I can't find any utility in it over the browser version and it's missing these critical features I need. Which begs the question - why is the far more complicated desktop version of the app, failing to do these simple formatting requests? Furthermore why is the interface and featureset between all versions of evernote, so different from eachother? Why isn't there just one standard interface and feature set on all platforms!? So confusing to me.
  23. Typing along in a note that I've been working on for a few days and I fat fingered something (I don't know what), I saw it select a bunch of text and delete it. Undo and Ctrl+Z did not do anything. I looked for File History, but that was yesterday's version. I am using the Evernote Desktop Premium edition version on Windows 7 Pro. So frustrating !!!
  24. I was troubleshooting my husband's iPhone and needed some info in my Evernote account. He does not use Evernote and did not have the app installed, so I logged in to the desktop site in Safari. Now I can't figure out how to log out. Please help.
  25. Hi folks! I am new to Evernote, but since everyone kept saying how incredibly amazing it was I decided I should give it a try. I can log in just fine with my Gmail account to the iOS app as well as to the web app from my desktop browser (Chrome on Mac OS Sierra). However, when I try to log in to the desktop app, I keep receiving this message. Does anybody know how to fix it? Thank you!
