  1. I would like the ability to copy all the tags from one note and paste them into another note. Here is how I imagine this functionality working: Right-click a note in the Note List. Select Copy Tags from the menu. Right-click a different note in the Note List. Select Paste Tags. Both notes now contain the same tags.
  2. I write my notes on Evernote for Windows Desktop. I write long notes, and I structure the content using indentation. As a result, I am constantly reaching for the mouse in order to click the "indent" and "outdent" icons in the text editor toolbar. Are there keyboard shortcuts for these? I discovered that the tab key inserts four leading spaces but I did not find a way to subtract four spaces (I tried shift + tab, ctrl + tab, etc.). Using spaces for indentation is less attractive than the "hard" indent you get from the toolbar, but I'd definitely settle for it. My arm is getting tired of reaching for the mouse! If there are no keyboard shortcuts for indent and outdent, then please consider this a new feature request!
  3. Hello All; I have been using Evernote for about 4 years now and just went to the premium service. I am also in college and starting to write papers. I would like to see a bibliography and references ability added to Evernote. An article in a magazine saying Evernote wanted to be the only information manager you ever needed, convinced me to start using the application. It seems to me citations,bibliographies, and references are the lifeblood of anyone who writes. If Evernote really wants to be the best note taking solution for serious and professional writers, being able to add citations on-the-fly is critical. Regards, Robert Williamson
  4. I use Evernote to create lists of timings for video subtitles and chapters. These timecodes usually look somewhat like this: 01:34:58 It would be immensely useful to have a feature, that allows me to increment or decrement the digits in a timecode. Emmet is a Plugin that adds that feature to a number of code editors. You can set your cursor on a number, like the minutes in my above example, and by pressing Ctrl + Up, you increment the number by 1. Ctrl + Down decrements it. This is an unbelievable addition in terms of convenience! Ctrl + Shift + Up could increment by 10 and Ctrl + Alt Up by .1 It could be wonderful! Here's a video of what it could look like:
  5. Please increase tags functionality for iOS devices: 1) We need *simple* multi-tag search. 2) We need auto-populate of tag names. 3) We need the tag library to reflect our desktop organization (e.g. order, nesting, etc), just as with Notebooks. The iOS apps are horridly crippled without these functions in place. Without them, you have only a few options: 1) Do without multi-tag filtering... Do you have something tagged for a person AND as an agenda item (something to talk about next time you see that person)? Too bad, you can only pull up EVERYTHING for that person, which may include years of emails, mtg notes, etc. OR you can pull up EVERYTHING tagged as "agenda", thus including large numbers of items irrelevant to who you are actually standing with. Insert your own example of useful multi-characteristic filtering, then accept that you can't accomplish them. 2) Utilize saved searches... This works perfectly, but causes, as it has caused with my Evernote, your Shortcut list to become monstrously long defeating to some degree the idea of a "shortcut list". In the end, you choose a few definitely needed multi-tag searches and resign yourself to option #1 above for most things. 3) Attempt to use complicated boolean search strings... This works in a highly non-intuitive way AND requires you to remember the exact wording of your desired tags, often difficult in situations where you are looking for a person for instance and don't remember if you listed them as Dan or Daniel. If you utilize an extensive tag list (a strength of the desktop Evernote applications) this works almost never, thus you resort to a few items under option #2, and mostly surrender to option #1. It seems quite strange that this is an unavailable functionality, especially because of how many people tell me it WAS available prior to 2011/2012. It's a very frustrating situation which is crippling the usability of the iOS apps for easy daily use. Please fix, or at least give us some idea of why this oft asked for functionality is still unavailable. Thank you!
  6. I use Scannable for scanning restaurant receipts, golf score cards, etc. It would be nice to optionally save GPS location when saving a scan to Evernote.
  7. Hi everyone, So … I restarted using Evernote, mostly the web version, and here's my feedback: we are in 2017 and Evernote is one of the only apps I know that doesn't allow to apply styles or format text with headings and so on. IMO, it doesn't make sense. Even Google Docs allows some styles, or at least, allows to import/paste from word and maintain a few styles. Evernote does not. I kindly request the Evernote team to add this feature to your roadmap. I really want to keep using Evernote but I really need to use something better for my notes. Kind regards, pedr
  8. Hi, I would like to make a feature request. The default behavior of the web clipper is to create a new note with the selected content in a given notebook. A separate note for every little clip is not always necessary. So, why not include an option to append the clipped content to an existing note. It would be somewhat similar to merging 2 notes, only difference being, the process is now automatic and on-the-fly, instead of being manual. PS: Sorry for the poor English. Thanks, The-Droidster
  9. Evernote web clipper already suggests new tags based on the contents of the page. Can we have this functionality while creating a note in desktop?
  10. 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.
  11. This feature could happen by simply assigning through the Reminder functionality. OR, it is something that could be implemented with a tag (or even, more specifically, a tag that is started with "@") Once of the major reasons I still use Google Keep is the ability to do location-based tagging. It is VERY convenient to remember things based on where I am going next. It helps when I forget to check my tagging
  12. Hi, With the increased collaboration features "recently" added to Evernote such as Shared Notebooks, it would be very useful if multiple email addresses could be linked to a single Evernote ID, and furthermore that shared notebooks could be shared based on Evernote userID alone as well as one of the associated email addresses. The reason is foremost for people using Evernote to share both private stuff with friends and family, and work stuff with colleagues. If I could either tell them just to share with my userID, or my colleagues simply could share with the email address they already have on file, it would simplify the process significantly, and also not mean "forced" sharing of ones personal email address to work colleagues for instance. Food for thought?
  13. There is a Mac feature that let's you copy/paste the style of word/character. When can we expect this to be available in Evernote?
  14. I dont understand why you guys havent built an official Evernote Sticky Note app for desktops. I am dying for this thing. There are third party apps available but I cant trust them. Please understand, nobody likes to open the entire evernote software made for windows (it's heavy dude !!!) All we need is a lightweight windows style sticky note connected to our Evenote account with minimal features such as a to-do list & bullet points and please make sure that cross icon only closes the note, IT SHOULD NOT DELETE THE NOTE (the default Windows Sticky Notes simply deletes the note, dumb Windows)
  15. After a bit of Googling, I am unable to find any official documentation regarding hotkeys or any other sort of convenient formatting for the new web product. Mainly what I'm looking for is an easy way to use Header styles for organization without having to manually change font-size, font-color, or any other manual change that would have to be remembered to keep it consistent across notes and time. Whether this is through something like Markdown or some in-house method doesn't matter: so long as it's possible. This is in part a bit of a revival of a past request from the old product forums:
  16. These were written with the OS X client in mind, but hopefully the spirit of the updates could be reflected on the other clients as well. Bulk Change Due Date This will be extremely convenient for anyone trying to do something non-trivial with the Reminder feature. There is currently no alternative except to manually click each note, go to Reminder -> Change Date -> click calendar/click the text entry field and update it there. If you want to change 10 date-less reminders to be due at the end of the month, it's a big hassle. Users should be able to change the Due Date on multiple reminders at once.When multiple notes are selected, the "multi-select" screen that appears in Snippet View should have a "Set Reminder Due Dates" field.The right-click menu should have an "Add/Change Reminder Due Date" entry which changes to "Set Reminder Due Dates" when multiple notes are selected.The "Note" menu should have an "Add/Change Reminder Due Date" entry which changes to "Set Reminder Due Dates" when multiple notes are selected.Completion History The current lack of history and searchability of completed reminders is contrary to Evernote's core premise of being able to find stuff based on any relevant vector. It's pretty reasonable to ask "Okay... what did I get done last week?", and I was honestly surprised to find that it is currently not possible. When a user marks a note reminder as Complete...The "Alarm" icon changes from blue to green. The completion is noted permanently on the Note somehow. Ideas: A "Completed Date" field appears in the Note Info dialogue with today's date ("Completed:" would also show up next to "Created:" and "Updated:" in the main note view). This is much more invasive to code since it would get the Reminder model chocolate all up in the Note model peanut butter, but is much more preferable because it encourages searchability and has a cleaner appearance. A History entry is created for the note that reads "Marked Complete by {User}" A "completed" tag is automatically added to the Note. In Preferences -> Reminders, there is a checkbox called "Tag completed Notes" that toggles this behavior. When the checkbox is checked, Input A and Input B become enabled. Input A is a text box which is populated by default with "completed". Input B is a checkbox with the label "Append the current date to completion tags", which will result in completed Notes being tagged "completed 1/6/2014" for example. Reminder Milestones The Reminders feature is excellent, especially with the beautifully-implemented "Upcoming Reminders" list that appears in Snippet View. I think a simple "Milestones" feature would make them even more functional and intuitive. Basically a Milestone is an unspecified point in time that represents a bunch of other tasks being completed. For example, you could have a "To-Do List" notebook, and create a Milestone Note for each month. Or if you're working on a home improvement project, you could have a Milestone for "Licenses and Raw Materials", another for "Basic Construction", and another for "Finishing Touches". When a user clicks on the gray Alarm icon for a Note with no reminder, the resulting popup now has two buttons. In addition to the "Add a Date" button, there is a "Set Milestone" button.When a user clicks on the blue Alarm icon for a Note with a reminder, there is a fourth button that reads "Clear Milestone"/"Set Milestone" based on whether the Note is already a Milestone.Milestone Reminders have a distinct background color in the "Upcoming Reminders" list, and their title appears in Bold-weighted font. They are otherwise functionally identical to normal Reminders in terms of setting dates, dragging to reorder, and notifications.Nice-to-Have: Notes with Milestone Reminders have another button/icon somewhere that automatically updates their text to be a Table of Contents listing ONLY the Notes that are part of that Milestone, which is determined by the following rules:A note is considered to be part of a Milestone if it...Appears ABOVE the Milestone in the "Upcoming Reminders" list (either by default positioning or by a user manually dragging it there) Does NOT appear above any other Milestones in the "Upcoming Reminders" list.In other words, a Note can only be part of one Milestone at a time, and a Milestone is comprised of all Notes that appear BETWEEN that Milestone and either the next Milestone above it OR the top of the "Upcoming Reminders" list.Nice-to-Have: When a Note is completed, if it is part of a Milestone according to the above rules, a link to it is added to a "Completed Reminders" list at the bottom of the Milestone Note. If the list does not exist, it is created. This is similar to the "Table of Contents" functionality, but on a Note-by-Note basis.ALTERNATIVELY, there could be a lo-fi way of doing this by simply allowing Reminders to have some basic formatting applied on the "Upcoming Reminders" view. For example, if you select one or more Reminders on the "Upcoming Reminders" list, open the Color list, and select a color, the background color of that Note's entry would change to the selected color. It could conceivably work with the Font list too. Thank you for your time! - Max
  17. Sometimes when I'm writing notes, I would like to be able to put a comment not in the text of the note, but as an annotation - much as I can make a comment to an uploaded PDF, for instance. Something like a separate text box, or the equivalent of a 'sticky note' that could remain on the side of the text, but linked to the relevant point. Thanks for considering.
  18. Why does evernote not have the ability to handwrite in the iOS version. I don't want to use Penultimate because I don't want to have two copies of my notes in two different applications. I know you can attach a picture of a white piece of paper but that is too cumbersome. Handwriting is available in the Android version, so why not bring it over to iOS. Many user have wanted it and handwriting is an essential part of note taking for me.
  19. The editor has some basic built-in support for formats. I would like to see it extended by (user defined?) text formats e.g. “heading”, “quote” etc. to give notes a standard look (especially when preparing for presentations). Alternatively Evernote could just support Markup language to make it a lot easier for everybody.
  20. It would be good if Evernote had the ability to pull all to do or checkboxes from all my notes and compile them into a aggregated noted. Same thing for any checkboxes that have been check marked. That way all to do or checkboxes from various notes (i.e., projects) would be compiled into one single aggregated note. Russ
  21. When creating a new note a user currently adds the title inside the title form field. The user can then hit TAB to advance to the text body. It would be nice if SHIFT-TAB returned from the first character in the text body back to the note title.
  22. Hello, Wouldn't it be great if Evernote could recognise bookmarks and clippings you've already tagged and made notes on?! Also via the Firefox addon button - let's say I'm on a webpage and I've added it as a bookmark to Evernote - but I've forgotten to add a few extra notes after viewing the rest of the webpage. Now, if I click the Firefox button again, it won't recognise that I've already clipped/tagged it and I can't see what I just entered, and can't make any quick amendments to it. So so frustrating... When I click the add-on again, I'd like to be able to make a few more additional notes real quickly, instead of having to go into Evernote and find the note, to make additional notes on that clipping. What else is possible..?! Thanks!
  23. Please give us the ability to reorder lists via drag and drop and let them keep their indenting and formatting. I love this product but hate it when I have to update a todo list or any kind of list. I'm a premium user and it is well worth the price but I would really like to see this feature. If a comparable note manager came along with this ability I would take a long hard look at switching. Thank you. Dave.
  24. Hey all! I don't know if this has been brought up before as I couldn't find the topic in the skitch area of the forums, but here's my use case: So I'm learning Rails right now and I'm noticing that I'm taking screenshots of code snippets and annotating them to review later on to reinforce what I'm learning. However, I find the limitation with skitch being that I can't stitch two images together to show the cause and effect of one code snippet on another and how they work together to arrive at an end result. Is there anything that's in the works for something like this? Thanks! Will
  25. One of my many use cases for Evernote is to store articles I've read or clipped from the Internet. However I find that I often want to make margin notes as I'm reading to reference later or see my train of thought. I'd love to have the ability to have a comment thread (like in a Google Doc) as a feature on an Evernote Note.
