  1. The new Code Block feature is great! I use it a lot. Here are a couple things that would make it even greater: Convert smart quotes into straight quotes. I copy code snippets from websites, and when I later try to use them, I'm often told that there are "illegal characters" in the code, which turn out to be smart quotes. AFAIK, programming editors don't deal well with these. I recommend that when creating a code block, any "smart" quotes (and apostrophes) be converted into their plain equivalents. Maybe filter out other non-ASCII characters, or at least flag them so we can deal with them before they cause trouble. A common technique is to display them as a question mark inside a diamond. Allow "in-line" code formatting. Many programmer-oriented websites (like StackOverflow) display any text enclosed by backtick characters (`) with code styling. It would be great if Evernote could do this, too.
  2. Rather than maintain an in-house editor for Notes, incorporate the TinyMCE ( https://www.tinymce.com/) editor into the Evernote Web Client TinyMCE is a fully featured, embedded HTML editor, that could provide all the edit feature typically available in many web-based application and provide a more consistent and feature-rich editing environment across all supported platforms ENML may need to be extended to allow support for the additional feature of HTML5, or conversely the editor could be "cut back" to only support the elements currently available in ENML
  3. Prior to the recent Android app update to v. 7.8.2, I could select some text in the note editor and then drag it to a new location. I have to cut and paste. The improvements to the editor introduced in 7.8.2 (brought about by using an embedded version of Chrome for Android, according to this post) unfortunately "disimproved" some features (using the Samsung S-pen and highlighting phone numbers as links to put into the dialer). Apparently this is another one. Has anyone else had this experience?
  4. When I editing a note, I usually do these things: Select whole line, change font size, set bold. I do these things because I want to make a line looks like a heading line. But I hate to do these manually. As I also use Confluence from Atlassian, I really like their shortcuts for setting heading lines. Could you add similar feature to Evernote on clients like Web, Windows and Mac?
  5. I would like to adjust the font size for text when writing a note. I can mark it bold, underlined etc. BUT i cannot adjust the textsize or the text color. That is not professional for such a program. Every editor can do this job...
  6. Hello. Imagin you want to write a note and suddenly, the text is acting weird all of the sudden: A word ends up at the end of the sentence, the rest of the sentence after that word. After a couple of that incident, your input is rendered unreadable. So. This is how the middle eastern, are experiencing @EverNote right now. Being one of those middle eastern, I find it unbearable to use Evernote. There already have been topics on this matter, and they have been ignored. I would love it if Evernote team reconsiders this important and vital feature. Thank you.
  7. I'm using a big table. My problem is I cannot create a new row if I'm using iOS (iPhone or iPad). Please give us this function

    Bug: Text formatting in Web App

    Side Note: I have a basic account. From everything I've read, it seems that this means I don't have the ability to report bugs. I think you should reconsider that. I understand not wanting to provide customer support to free people as that costs money, but at least make it easy for people to help better your product by alerting you of bugs. A bug reported by a free person helps your paid customers as well. The issue: When editing on the web editor, if you have the font settings all normal (Gotham 14) and you copy/paste a line of text, the pasted text will look fine on your web app, but smaller than the rest of the text on your iPad app. Looking at the inspector in Chrome, the problem seems to be that if you're using the default font size of 14px, all of the span tags actually have no font size declared, but if you paste in text that was 14px, you'll now have a `font-size: 14px;` style on the span. This text actually renders small on the iPad. Maybe this means that the iPad's default font size is more like 16px? I don't know. But, the difference seems to be this extra inline CSS rule. Since there's already a `font-size: 14px;` CSS rule on `#en-note`, this difference is not visible in the web editor. The only fix seems to be highlighting all of your text and re-setting the font size. It's especially annoying when you're wanting to re-order a lot of text in a note.
  9. When you search for text within a note, all the found instances are highlighted, and you can step forward or back through them with the arrows. That's fine, but it would be much better if when you go to a given instance, it displayed "Item 7 of 24 found". Click the right arrow, and it would say "Item 8 of 24 found", and so on.
  10. It would be SO GREAT if, when I return to a note I was just looking at, the scroll position was automatically restored! Currently notes always open scrolled to their top. It would save a lot of time if I didn't have to go hunting for the part I was just referring to.
  11. Tenho uma sugestão para os desenvolvedores. Quando utilizo a função "tabela", tenho um problema na questão "facilidade". Veja na imagem. Se quero criar uma coluna à direita no terceiro bloco, cria-se uma coluna em todos os demais. Daí preciso mesclar os dois primeiros, sendo que só gostaria de acrescentar uma coluna individualizada no terceiro. Percebe a quebra de produtividade?
  12. Why not to accept EPUB as a exchange format? Even more, why not use EPUB as the real format for all system? It is time to assume that Evernote is not an notetaking-App, is a online-white-paper-App. We are who decide if we are writing a short or long text, temporal or permanent, personal or public and son on. In both cases, we will need formatting tools to create this text, this writing. For many, Evernote is the updated version of windows notepad-app for this 21st century, but we need more than that app. Doing this you will have the solution for many questions: - Title, headings, subheadings: great to write more than two lines of text! - Style format (colours, fonts): avoiding untidy notes - Tablet of content/index: navigability trough large and dense notes - Export/import option as EPUB: rather than ENEX format or HTML files - Storage option: any place as one file, that is EPUB - Online minimalist EPUB editor: simply text without see any html code - No printers, no paper: users just need and want digital content So finally, Evernote will be a huge online place where you can start with a minimum note of one line. Then, you can go far adding more text and contents, creating a report, a diary. Even, completing a novel or a thesis by parts or doing all in one place. Then, if someone need further publishing software, there are many applications (Indesing, QuarkPress, etc). All of them ready to create printings and more developed solutions for experts. Nowadays, for real digital life, nobody needs a old fashion formats like DOC or PDF, which are prepared to be "printed" in a paper or in a screen. For many of us, with a Evernote is more than enough. Google knows it. They have GoogleDocs that in fact is an editor of super-html, that is, EPUB. There you can download it in EPUB format (however you cannot upload EPUB to there...). Even Evernote already knows this, because in fact, ENEX format is a kind of compressed html, that is again, a kind of EPUB format.
  13. I wish I could put something besides a check mark in a checkbox. For example, a minus sign, perhaps to indicate "I don't intend to do anything about this right now but I want to keep it alive." Suggested UI: right-click on the checkbox and select from a pop-up list of characters. Besides a minus sign, how about asterisk, and digits 0-9 to indicate priority? Extra credit: add your own characters to the list. Double extra credit: be able to sort notes by the contents of the checkbox (so, for example, all the priority 9 items go to the top of the list).
  14. This extension is much like the Sublime Text one.
  15. As much as you can change the default font and size, I think it would add a lot of functionality and customisation potential to the Evernote editor if you could change more defaults. Some that come to mind, Default font type and size for code blocks Default highlighter colour (linked to this idea)
  16. ノートのテキスト入力時に、クォート「'」、ダブルクォート「"」を入力すると自動的にそれぞれの開き/閉じ版に変換されます。以下のような例です。 'test' → ‘test’ "test" → “test” 文章の一部にプログラム言語のコードを記述している場合に、この動作は余計なおせっかいでしかありません。 設定でこの機能を無効にできるようになっているとありがたいです。

    Product as a whole - basically UI and Editor

    Hey Evernote Team Firstly, Love the app. Have been a fan for years and have done multiple ECL talks to promote the product. I'm invested in your success. More power to you! Now for the feedback: If you compare Evernote to basically every other text editor (Ulysses, Bear, OneNote, Dropbox Paper, Google Docs, Medium) you have an inferior editor experience, as well as, a less-modern UI. As it stands - in terms of note taking - Evernote is only a little better than Apple Notes and the UI feels stale on both macOS and Windows - slow clap for the amazing work that you have done on iOS and Android. The perfect Evernote would be a combination of Ulysses' editor experience, Bear's crispy UI, OneNote's colourful folders (LOVE this), DropBox Paper's/Medium's Image organisation (Oh my goodness it's perfect), Google Doc's team collaboration and the good old search and sync that Evernote is famous for. Please, copy, steal, borrow! Whatever it takes! This is achievable. P.S. the way that Evernote handles PDF's also needs work. The way they sit inside notes is just... off. For example in the iOS app, they sit in this random little rounded rectangle taking up a third of the note. A PDF editor like PDF Expert does a superior job of editing. Yours Truly Jonathan
  18. There are folders I always want to sort by date (like invoices) and others I always want to sort by note title (like my literature notes). I would like to be able to save this setting per notebook so that they always come up the way I need them.
  19. Editing notes on the web is painful. If I paste text the screen jumps back to the top. If I paste a list it gets indented with a blank top line. If I try to delete the blank line it deletes what's before it. As I recall, it's not much better on the device (Android) either. Between that, continuous "note conflicts", and silly things like check boxes not lining up with the rest of the line or your indent/outdent icons being reversed from standard, I'm having a hard time staying with Evernote. Are you writing your own text editors? Don't! Other have already solved that problem; use theirs!

    Heading 1, Heading 2 etc

    New premium user here. Realized that standardize formatting headings are missing and was surprised. Makes formatting much easier. I want to think about my content, not remember if I manually made the previous heading a 12, 14, or 18. (Please let me know if I'm missing something!)
  21. Hi all, We released Evernote for iOS 7.17.2 earlier today. This release includes an iMessage app improvement, the return of simplify formatting, and fixes our top crashes. 7.17.2 Notable fixes and improvements: iMessage app improvements Tapping the new native "Save to Evernote" button while viewing a shared note in the Messages app will now launch the note editor within the main Evernote app Within the editor in the main Evernote app, you can save the note as is, choose to move the note to a different notebook, add tags, or modify the title or content Remember that this is a copy of the original note shared - your modifications will only live in your account Improved sender note list formatting on iPads Settings > General > Show Notes in Widget has been changed to Show Notes in Widget / iMessage Additional improvements Simplify formatting has returned Search highlighting in images has returned iPad external keyboard shortcuts for inserting date and inserting time have returned Copying and pasting using the Apple Pencil while sketching has been fixed Fixed the crash that occurred when creating a new note while listening to songs in the native Music app in iOS 10 Fixed issue with generation of private note links Fixed issue where changing the color of private note links on the Mac made them not work in iOS Fixed issue where some ScanSnap PDFs could not be opened in iOS Fixed issue where pasting content from other iOS apps into a note caused a crash Several other crashes have been fixed You can download the Evernote for iOS app from the App Store. As always, please let us know what you think. Cheers!
  22. Will there ever be a feature that would let us fully format a note? Like an HTML editor alongside the WYSIWYG. I've been trying to get into Evernote for months but always end up backing away because formatting is a pain. I've been using the web version of Evernote to format articles saved using the web clipper. Browser's Element Inspector works surprisingly well for trying to get those elements to line up right and removing whitespaces because you have to admit, almost all (if not all) articles saved using the web clipper ends up having awful whitespaces and misaligned texts. And even that is still a pain. Forget the fact that we have to deal with the Element Inspector. Lots of times the web version would refresh and would save multiple copies of the same article I'm formatting. So yeah, I was wondering if this would ever be a thing?

    Open EN-API

    Whats about providing an API, instead of trying to implement only a part of great ideas from your customers. So we can build our own features. Because I think, the community has great ideas, but EN is unable to serve them all. An API would be the best compromiss for creating cool things as (only a glimse from my mind): Inline Tags (similar to Google Keep) Inline Anchors / in connection with an Table of Content "real" tables // the current implementation is really buggy Tables with fixed header / footer Tables with summary (calculating Columns) Tables with column sort Tabled with column filter "real" formatting // the the ideas from Confluence as real headlines Additional meta information to an note like a date range special note types Or mark a note as template Excerpts of a note (using the same Template everywhere and get all updates Macros at all / Maybe a Macro Market? An better search UI (at least under Windows / Android) - bec. the current works, but you need to remember all search terms instead of clicking them together Outlining (collapsable list of information) Checkboxes which inherite the state from child checkboxes Different color for Evernote links in comparison to real links (I know you get green links if you drag a note to another, but this does not work with STRG-K Speaking about links - why should we use 3! different shortcuts to edit a link? Why not only STRG+K as all other Win or Web-Apps work Support for Markdown Allow inline HTML Edititing (for advanced users) Allow Inline Videos - An Note is just an HTML - why not support embedded Objects? Preview of attached Office Documents / Google Documents - there are a plenty of Viewers available Finding attachements based on the extension (this is already implemented, but in a real limited way - so I need to assign extra tags to find my attachements Support of a global CSS to style your notes ....and many many more - thats just a few of my ideas ... but think about the power of the community....! Don't get me wrong: I really love Evernote and I'm a Premium user since years. But I can't see any development to make things really usefull. Yes: EN 6.* for windows was a huge leap in the right direction, but there are sooo many missing features regarding to the editor - I can referate hours about the pros and cons of EN :-)
  24. The editor in the Windows client needs improvement in a number of areas, specifically, the copy-and-paste functionality with rich text and HTML formatted text. When copying text from Evernote into a MS Word document, formatting is usually way off; and, when copying text from a web page into Evernote, the formatting can be equally poor. Compare this to the seamless and typically excellent copy-and-paste to and from MS Word. For the amount of complaining people do about Word, they really got this and many other things right. There are a number of good to great editor components on the market (I'm a long time Windows and web developer) and they provide this functionality and more. Perhaps it is time to give up the in-house editor solution (if you are developing this functionality in-house).
  25. Hi. Does anyone else have this problem as well? I am not able to select text when in edit mode. When I do a double tap on a word, I can see that the word is highlighted for a split second and that the markers for the left and right edge of the selection are visible. But the selection and the markers go away instantly and so I am not able to copy/paste anything in the edtior. Maybe I am doing it wrong? I tried a lot. Tap, tap and hold, double tap, double tap and hold,triple dap and so forth. It's a pain to write some text (shopping lists, etc.) without copy/paste. The phone I am using is a Sony Xperia T with Android 4.1.2. Please help and many thanks in advance.
