  1. I successfully scanned business cards using iPhone App. These appear in my iCloud contacts & Evernote web. When I make changes to the previously scanned contacts in the App, these changes DO NOT sync back to iCloud. (They do sync back to Evernote web though.) I also tried to make changes straight in iCloud, and these changes DO NOT sync back to Evernote - web nor App. I have checked to make sure contacts access is enabled on Evernote, iPhone, Mac, etc. Settings are OK as far as I can tell, since contacts sync when originally scanned, just not when edited. I would like any changes I make in Evernote to show up in iCloud contacts, and any changes in iCloud to show up in Evernote. I don't understand why the original scans show up, but the edits do not. HELP!
  2. Has anyone found a way around the fact that you can't edit text inside an encryption? I have encrypted account information in a note that I'd like to space out and bold the titles to and it's super frustrating that all I can add are spaces because it's super wonky when on a phone.
  3. I often create notes in other apps (Word, Bean, textedit) and then bring them into EN. Then I may do some further editing as I use the info. I find that if it is a larger note (200-300KB), after I input an edit, the app will hang. It may last for a second or up to 15 sec. This does not affect the other running apps. Any idea on how to get around this problem?
  4. After taking a photo of a page of text with my iPhone, how can I process the photo of said page in order to extract the highlighted area of the text as a note using (EN) for Mac?

  6. Edit Tags

    Hi Everyone, I'm trying to edit tags inside a note on the web version without success. On the Mac and Windows Version I'm able to do it, by double clicking the tag. Is there a way to edit a tag, inside the note, on the web version? (without deleting it and creating the new one) I tried on Safari and Chrome.
  7. Can't edit written notes

    I created some handwritten notes on my ipad, and then synced them. When I later downloaded them again on the ipad, I am no longer able to edit them with the writing tool!
  8. Organization Table Size Edit

    Using Evernote Web. Want to make a template table and then insert it repeatedly into various individual notes. I found the tutorial on making and using templates. Good. However, all of the tutorials and how-to's say that when I click on the Grid icon for a table, I'm supposed to see a menu option for Table Properties. I'm not seeing that either with a left or right click. I get only a drop down visual that lets me select a few choices of rows and columns (not many) and no ability to adjust the width of the columns. What am I missing? Thank you.
  9. This is my feature request response to the feature request for "Note "Comments " please. ? " Rather than have a running list of comments that would make a note look like a FaceBook post or Blog with commentary, I highly recommend that the Work Chat shared notes allow for track changes. This would allow someone to start the note, and anyone in the work chat to add, edit and comment as they see fit, while the original material is preserved from comparison and final approval. In addition it could allow Evernote for Business features where the "Final approval" is identified as an individual who can approve or reject all of the changes. Very similar in context to Office Products. thanks for reading.
  10. I am a recent evernote beginner due to my part time job as a personal assistant. My boss has been sharing notebooks with me which up until this point has been very easy and accessible. In our most recent share exchange he shared a notebook with an microsoft excel attachment. He has a macbook and I have a dell pc. I am easily able to access the note and open the excel attachment. Upon opening, I open and after disabling the feature that says enable editing I am able to freely edit within the document. He says that his old assistant (another mac user) was able to edit click save and those changes were saved and translated into evernote. When I do, however, it allows me to make the changes and save; however, once exited, the changes are not reflected in evernote. In fact, once I click save I get a pop up saying "Document Title is read only. To save a copy, click OK, then give the woorkbook a new name in the save as dialog box." I need to forgo. I need to find a solution to make it not merely read only but editable so that I can click and it updates the changes to reflect in the notebook without have to delete the attachment in the notebook and upload a second attachment. Is there any way for me to open one of his shared notes and associated attachment by simply opening, editing, and saving? He does not want me to open, edit, and upload a new and second attachment. Any help/guidance would be beyond greatly appreciated!!!
  11. Just suddenly started having problems in the last couple of weeks very similar to this post: I am working in notes with big lists and other plain text content. I might copy something and it pastes back as nothing or just a new line, or just part of the whole piece I copied. I press fn+delete and instead of forward deleting as typical mac behavior it just back spaces. Numbered lists of notes do not join. Previously if you had two lists, one right after the other, you could "join" them by deleting the empty space between and the numbers on the second list would then cary on where the first list left off. This is not working anymore. Sometimes after deleting a selection or line, or after cutting it, the cursor jumps to the bottom or top of the page or somewhere random. Sometimes it jumps OUTSIDE the editing area to the left side of the padding of the white editing area background. Undo and redo are acting weird as well. Sometimes not doing anything at all, sometimes not jumping the screen to the cursor when you do ctrl-z. It started randomly, I hadn't even updated evernote so it wasn't caused by an update I don't think. I just updated to most recent to see if that would fix it but it didn't. Anyone experiencing similar issues?
  12. I just installed the latest Evernote update a few minutes ago on my Mac Powerbook. Ever since, the typing function is completely glitchy. If I'm typing a new sentence, everything is fine. It's when I have to edit the sentence that things go wrong. I click my mouse cursor somewhere in a word, and the editing does not happen at the point—it skips forward or backward a few letters, and completely throws off all the letters. Actually, I'm noticing that it's happening RIGHT NOW IN THIS TEXT BOX as I try to contribute to the feed. What the heck is up, Evernote? I just want to be able to backspace, type, and click accurately. Example: Let me attempt to demonstrate. The sentence below SHOULD say "Hello, I am trying to type in Evernote." I'm going to click behind the word "type" so theoretically, I should be editing it to say "Hello, I am trying to type a page in Evernote." Hello, I am trying to type i a page n Evernote. >> SEE HOW WEIRD THAT IS???? Imagine this happening ALL THE TIME. Is there a solution for this?
  13. I have multiple notebooks shared with numerous employees who need to be able to update and edit content within these notes. Numerous times I've had employees accidentally delete a note without realizing they have done this. I know it moves the note to the trash, but I do not have the time to go through the trash file everyday and sort through the notes that were rightfully deleted and ones that were accidentally and unknowingly deleted. In order to rectify this Evernote desperately needs to make a feature where you can do one of the following to prevent this accidental deletion of notes with shared users: 1) Have an option so the shared users can edit and view but not delete 2) Make it so only the admin can delete notes OR allow the admin to lock specific notes so only those locked cannot be deleted (but again, the notes will still be editable) 3) Simply prompt whoever accidently (or purposely) hit delete with the "are you sure you want to delete this note" pop up. (Evernote does do this, but ONLY when you are deleting something from the trash - aka permanently deleting it)
  14. Lock symbol

    I've been using Evernote since 2011 without any problems. Just recently my android app version of Evernote shows a lock symbol instead of pencil. In other words, my ability to edit my notes on my phone has been taken away. I can edit these notes on my PC. I thought even under the new rules, I could have 2 devices under the basic plan.
  15. Hello - I'm hoping there's a simple way to do this... I'm reading a book I'd like quote. It would be easier to take a photo of the text in the book and create a note that I can then copy and paste the text from the hard copy book into my document than to have to transcribe word for word the text from the image to the doc... Is there a way to capture text from a physical book and turn it into editable text--not annotated-- in Evernote? Thanks so much!! I'm writing a book and this would be a major time saver. - Newbie.
  16. 에버노트를 사용하고 있는 프로그래머 입니다. 에버노트를 주로 업무 내용 정리시에 사용합니다. 때문에 소스코드를 발췌해서 넣는 경우가 잦은데요. 그런 경우는 주로 chrome에서 에버노트 편집 접속 후, mark down같은 플러그인을 이용해서 에버노트를 편집합니다. mark down같은 것을 이용하여 문서를 작성할 경우, 보기 좋게 정리할 수 있는데요. 에버노트 PC application에서도 이를 지원했으면 하는 바램이 있습니다. 어떻게 생각하시나요?
  17. Problem with editing

    My question is if two people could edit the same note at the same time. Because when I tried only one of us can edit.
  18. Editing notes

    When I edit a note by clicking in front of a word, the whole section is highlighted and as soon as I type the amendment the section is deleted. In Word if you do this the change is inserted and it is possible to delete only the text you wish. This quirk has caused me a lot of grief recently, what am I doing wrong?
  19. Buenos dias, cuando acudo a una nota e intento añadir o corregir el texto de la propia nota, al colocar el puntero en medio de un renglon de texto y picar el primer caracter, automáticamente se selecciona toda la linea de texto. consecuentemente con el segundo caracter se borra toda esa linea. Debe ser uan función de corrección o algo así que se pued activar y desactivar, pero no lo localizo. Gracias
  20. Hello everyone, i may have a problem understanding the proper workflow when editing a pdf document that is already stored in evernote. Let's say i have a document that needs to be rotating one or more pages (btw it's a shame that evernote does not support this out of the box). So i right-click on the document and say "Open with Foxit PDF Reader" on my Windows workstation. This will open the file and i can make my adjustments. The tricky part for me is now how to get the edited version back into evernote replacing the previous document. Is it really neccessary to save the edited file locally and import it back into evernote after deleting the previous version manually? Thanks for your support.
  21. Please advise!! Every time i edit a note i can change the first character and then whatever i type next overlays previous text. Is there a default setting that is wrong. This doesn't happen to my co-workers using Evernote. Ive deleted the application and re-loaded. It happens to new notes and old notes.
  22. I'm on a Mac with OSX 10.7.9. I'm using the latest version of Evernote for the desktop, 6.0.16. Something new has just starting happening in the last two or three days. When I try to edit a note and put the insertion point where I want to type, typing just one character immediately selects from the insertion point to the end of the current paragraph. Typing another character then, of course, replaces all the selected text with that next character. I've never seen anything like it. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone have any ideas about how to correct it?
  23. I just updated my Evernote because it had been a few versions since the last time, and now my Evernote is practically useless on my Mac. When I go in to edit a note in the middle of a sentence the program will automatically select the text between where I'm typing and the end of the sentence. Which essentially makes it so that I have to type one character at a time if I want to adjust anything. I have to type one character press the back arrow and then type again, rinse and repeat. I'm having a horrible time trying to find a place to report this issue so that it can be fixed ASAP because it has made Evernote completely unusable. I'm on a MacBook Pro Retina running Mac OS X 10.7.5 with Evernote 6.0.15 installed. And yes I reinstalled Evernote fresh from the website. I only have Evernote Basic, which seems to make it impossible to tell the Evernote team that there is an issue, since this is not an issue that I can solve for myself. Any suggestions on how to get this to their attention would be appreciated.
  24. I have premium, and have not done a personal local backup of any of my files. Just to Try, I exported three files as html, then tried to open them. The notes opened but without being able to edit, the link was not able to be viewed at all. I do not want to save the files as evernote files, but want to be able to pass them to another person who does not have evernote and uses onedrive (yuck!). What's the solution? Any assistance will be very appreciated! Thanks!
  25. I. I'm a full time evernote (on windows) user and would like to make a few suggestions of tools and functions that i really would like to have on it now. If any of this is already available in some way please let me know. 1. a match properties (or format painter) tool to be able to copy text styles or properties fast 2. a line spacing option that would allow to change spacing inside a note (full or parts of text) 3. more option in the highlight text tool. that one color thing is just not enough for more complex work 4. a really beautiful thing: the ability to create links not just for complete notes ('Copy Note Link') but for specific parts of text inside a note. this would allow for fast switching between topics inside notes or even inside a long note (i have a lot of those) creating a kind of index. thanks for your time. keep up the good work with this amazing software.
