  1. I would like to see a simple option during the webclip to allow for the removal of pictures from the clip. I do a lot of research clipping and just need the text for reference, not the images. Also cuts down on storage space required. There is a product that do clipping of articles called "Print Friendly" at that has such a feature. When they do their clip, it has a check box to allow removal of pictures form the clip. This cleanly removes all pictures and grapics from the clip leaving a very clean text clip with formating. This would be a great function for both the clipper and may as an editor options on Evernote itself, since it is ofter difficult to clean up the clip by way the formatiing goes on the editor. I am going to ask them if there product could put a store to Evernote option as an option. By the way, is there a way to display the html code on the editor, like the html toggle button on most web based editors.
  2. i find searching to be not enough. I would like a way to bookmark a single line (or even selected text) in a note. the bookmark should have a title and that title should be searchable.
  3. I mostly use evernote to collect code snippets mainly C/C++ related. When I copy the code from my editor like vim or xcode(mac), I dont see the syntax being heighlighted. On googling I found a online syntax highlighting tool. ( I was able to get my code higlighted but when I paste to evernote I see all the code being pasted in a single line as below : int sum(){>----int result = 0;>----return result != 0;} Let me know if this could be avoided or if there is a better way for pasting code into evernote.. THanks
  4. In order to use Evernote for eg. "bill archive purposes" it would be nice to have a sequentiell note numbering field in the "info section" of the singel note - Also a sort criteria for Numbering in note overview. automatics every time a new note is added to a notebooka sequentiell number is added to the note header(probobly in a range start to spacify for each indivisual notebook)where can the numbering be seen within the header info (mit editable)in front of each note (in overview / mit editable)edit-ability at a later time the number can be post-editedhow?go to "notes overview"go to "edit (new) sort by number" functionnotes can be dragged (up, down)by drag, drop handels when leaving "edit (new) sort by number"the numbers are changed within notes. This funktion easens the sequentiell numbering of notes and adds another sort criteria that can be changed manually on request (later)
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Currently, all emails I send to my Evernote "Email Notes to" address land in the "Inbox" notebook. I am suggesting to have a separate email address for each notebook, just like Todoist has a separate email for each project. I know, it is possible to route an email into a specific notebook by adding "@notebook_name" to the email subject but in practice, this is inconvenient, time consuming, and error prone. you have to remember to use "@" (instead of "#" as it is in other applications). You have to type the notebook name correctly. You have to click edit subject + navigate to the end of it + type out the notebook name manually ... For the Todoist projects to which I often email todos, I saved the corresponding email addresses into my address book, all prefixed with "Todoist - " - thus, when I start typing "Todo" in the recipient field, all of my email clients are giving me auto-complete suggestions for all Todoist project email addresses I saved. Very convenient, very fast to use, no danger of mistyping. I'd love to do the same with Evernote notebooks. A nice side effect of not modifying the email subject: all common email clients are automatically grouping emails with the same subject into a thread (even if prefixes like "FWD:" are added). Thus, leaving the subject as is when forwarding to Evernote will attach this forwared email to the same thread as the original one, making it easy and convenient to check which ones you saved to Evernote already. This feature request also reflects the desires of dozens of commenters on the following two feature requests. Yet, I decided to create a separate thread here because the other two are only mentioning this feature among others: Feature Request: Link multiple email addresses to Evernote account Multiple Email Adresses
  8. Hi, I usually use evernote widget for fast note taking or searching. Moreover, notes can contain private information, so I don't want any note contents to be displayed in widget. I chose to turn off "Show Notes in Widget / iMessage", but the "Recently viewed notes will appear here" area showed up. I think this area looks ugly. The area in the widget screen is important asset: unnecessary area of one widget can hide part of another widget and it requires (otherwise unnecessary) user scroll when s/he attempts to use this widget, which obstructs fast full-filling of the user need.
  9. I see that you can change it manually, but that's such a hassle and it just switches right back to that awful blue color once you move the link anyway. I'd much rather have it be Evernote green!
  10. It would be great if you can add "always on top" feature to your desktop client. Personally, I like to take my own notes from say what I read on websites. So able to pin notes on top will really help. Thanks.
  11. Would be great to be able to adjust the Evernote application font size. That is, the font(s) that are used in the side panels, the list of notes, note cards, snippets, etc. I can make the text I type into notes as big as needed, but I still have to squint at the list view (especially with high-res displays). A global setting in the Preferences / Options would be sufficient, but even better would be some keyboard shortcuts to zoom in or out I'm a Mac user, but I believe this is a missing feature on Windows as well.
  12. Easily copy-pasting tags between notes are possible in Evernote Mac version, as far as I know, it would be nice if it's possible in Evernote app for mobile devices. Right now the closest way to achieve that is by duplicating an existing tagged note, clearing its content, then copy pasting a new content to it. But if the copy-pasted content has formatting, clipped from websites for example, then sometimes the formatting will be screwed. It'll be nice if there's simply a "duplicate tags only" aside from "duplicate note" option in the menu.
  13. Hi, I'd like to propose a feature for all Evernote platforms: Let us toggle a read-only attribute on notes. Let me explain why: I use Evernote to keep lists of customers, email addresses, etc. and other stuff that rarely needs to be changed. Sometimes, I will highlight those bits of text to copy/paste into another window. However, I occasionally hit a key on the keyboard which replaces all of the highlighted text in the note. If I don't notice this, the changes get synced and I lose the data that used to be there (admittedly my own mistake). If you could right-click on notes and toggle a read-only checkbox or something similar, that would make Evernote much more robust for storing things that you never want to accidentally change like doctor info, email addresses of friends, or whatever. Also, if you think about how many things you clip/copy/paste into a note that never again need to be edited, it just makes sense to be able to lock the content to prevent edits. Overall, I think a read-only feature would make Evernote even more useful for storing long-term info. Thanks!
  14. 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?
  15. Keyboard shortcuts in Evernote Web would be extremely useful and make it faster to use Evernote Web. Currently, the process to open a new task requires a minimum of three clicks-- click "New Note", click to edit the subject or body, optionally add tags and other elements, and then click 'Done'. Editing an existing note requires even more clicks: Click on the note, click on the edit button, click on "Show details" so that I can see the tags, optionally add and remove tags, then click on the message body, then click 'Done'. I'm a heavy user of Gmail keyboard shortcuts (The best one is '?', which brings up a list of all keyboard shortcuts. Click '?' again to make the list go away). Dropbox also supports keyboard shortcuts, as well as other Todo apps like Gqueues and Google Keep (Again, just hit '?' to bring up a list). Please add Keyboard shortcuts in Evernote Web and please provide documentation about these shortcuts similar to the Gmail/Gcal/Gdocs '?' key.
  16. 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!
  17. I'd LOVE to get rid of my google or safari bookmarks and use Evernote to manage them. Perhaps by allowing users to assign a specific tag to a web URL saved in a note, a feature could be created that pulled these links from tagged notes and presented them in a browser as bookmarks, organized by notebook, but only showing url links tagged as bookmarks. These could be presented in an Evernote bookmark bar which synchronizes on your devices. When opening a list of bookmarks, maybe include a small icon that would open the entire note with additional note info?? I hope that makes sense. I use Evernote for everything and hate using a separate bookmark manager. Allowing bookmarks to be edited with context or notes would be immensely helpful.
  18. I use Evernote checklists on a daily basis, for a series of recurring tasks. On the Evernote Windows client I can "Uncheck" all todo items to clear-down the checklist to use again. However, there is no equivalent feature in the Android app. I've noticed this feature has been requested quite often but never implemented. It would seem to me to be a good candidate to add as a new feature? Thanks.
  19. 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
  20. I would like an option to turn off the Evernote camera's shutter sound. There's a few workarounds right now, here's why I prefer an actual feature: Silence the phone: This is my current workaround and it's relatively easy to do. The problem is there is never a situation when I need or want to hear the shutter sound on my camera when using Evernote. Switching back and forth throughout the day is a nuisance, and Evernote goes to great pains to make its user experience fantastic. There's no need for something this small to get in the way of that. Force Evernote to use the phone's stock camera app or another camera app: I cannot find this setting, and even if I could, I wouldn't use it. I really like Evernote's camera. Turn off the stock camera's shutter setting: It's already off, so this is not a solution for me. I use the Galaxy S3 with Evernote, and I've seen users on the Note 2 with this issue as well. So, if an official setting to turn off the Evernote camera's sound could be implemented, that would be much appreciated.
  21. 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.
  22. 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!
  23. Annotations & Citations

    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
  24. 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:
  25. Hi, I use Evernote both for business and private, it's great! However, we have many notes that we want to create with same layout which currently is not possible. It would be nice to have a button to copy the selected layout to a new line (Windows or Mac client). See it like the paintbrush icon in eg. Microsoft Office apps. On the other hand, when we have used webclipper to copy/paste things or copied articles and want it to become plain text, it would be nice to select an area or everything in the note and be able to clear the layout. Last but not least it would be nice if we were able to select multiple lines of text (some selected lines, then some not, and later in the note some other lines) and change the formatting (font, color) or copy it etc. Hope it gets implementend some way. Thanks and keep up the good work!
