  1. Dear Evernote team , I 've been a few years of intensive Evernote users in the private and professional spheres . I work for half a year with a Surface Pro 4 and do not want to miss it . However, unfortunately, very important aspect bothers me tremendously and drove me almost to Onenote : noting the miserable ways handwritten or draw in the Windows version of Evernote . Evernote Touch offers grotesquely no (Surface ) Pen support . The iOS version has indeed integrated drawing function and Penultimate . Is something equivalent for the Windows desktop version plans or ever has in mind ? I need practical advice on how I could solve by other apps by this problem. Greetings, Alex Greetings Alex
  2. Perhaps I missed something, but I thought I read something that Evernote could convert my handwriting to text. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
  3. I would be great if Evernote had a feature to convert parts of handwritten notes to text, similar to Microsoft's OneNote or Samsung's S-Note. Since the OCR search for handwritten text already works extremely well I feel like this shouldn't be too much of a problem.
  4. With the recent feature of canvas & handwriting, I love ever note more than before. Its pretty good on my iPad Pro. But I do feel the canvas size is small. Its enough to make quick notes or draw a small sketch. But there are at times when I wanted to take handwriting notes for the entire seminar, but small canvas size is limiting what I wanted to do. I use one note on these occasions. Solution: Option to increase the size of the canvas or complete handwriting supported notes
  5. It would be nice if a better handwriting and/or paint option was added. I would like more color choices, pens, the ability to create any color, background colors and templates. I love Quicknote but can't share those notes on Evernote. I can only share the pdf link or take screenshots of handwritten notes.
  6. Does anyone know if Moleskine has officially stopped making Evernote notebooks? If so, are there plans for any alternatives?
  7. I use galaxy note 5. The current handwriting feature is terrible and I have to use another app for memo. The good example is Squid app. - Please improve the delay when I write memo. - Please add eraser mode with one hand. - Please add an option of adjusting paper size. - Please allow multiple page notes.
  8. I'm a researcher and I spend a lot of time reading and annotating papers with my thoughts and comments. I'm trying to use evernote to save on printing them out and also to keep them all together. When I use upad or penultimate with my stylus, I can free handwrite on the pdf. However, when I annotate a pdf in evernote with a stylus, the programme "smooths" the line I draw making it difficult to handwrite. Further, if I handwrite I often will double tap the screen in the process of writing a word, meaning that the previous stroke of the pen is selected for deletion (try handwriting t, or h, in annotation mode). In order to continue writing I have to tap somewhere else on the screen mid word or letter and then go back to it, which slows me down and makes annotation unusuable. Can evernote fix this by having a handwrite annotation option on pdf annotation? This is vital if I'm going to write comments on a pdf, I don't want to type as I find doing so on an ipad slow and unweildy. Further small point - when I open a pdf to annotate, the "arrow" is the default annotation tool, to save time, it would be better if evernote remembered the last tool you were using and opened with this onel. I note this has been an ongoing problem since 2014 for researchers trying to use evernote, and will push people onto other platforms:
  9. On my new Note 8, when I select handwriting, the S Pen responds slowly while writing. If I write on S Note, or Sketches, or Google Keep, the ink responds as expected. However, on Evernote, the ink is waaaaay behind the pen stroke. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Request: Handwriting in Evernote for iOS

    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.
  11. Hi We need a full integration of EVERNOTE with Bluetooth Stylus: Bamboo fineline & others in order to have a good handwriting experience PLEASE !! // the handwriting experience in EVERNOTE Android is excellent in SAMSUNG tablets with S-pen , We need this in iOS

    Graph Paper look

    Is there a way to set up a note so it has a graph or grid background? I sometimes use my tablet hand draw floor plans or keep handwritten notes. A graph paper look would be great... if I could find it!
  13. I would love to use Apple Pencil better...like in OneNote. So, just write anywhere, mark anywhere, highlight anywhere. I copy/paste a lot of stuff from the web or other sources, and would like to annotate them, also pictures/graphics. Like drawing an arrow from outside the graphic into it - to show a specific topic/point and making an annotation handwritten. That would be a great support for learning/presenting.

    more handwriting colors

    i love this app and the features but i think it would be awesome to add an array of colors for pen & highlight for the handwriting feature on android
  15. Something seems to have changed in the last week or so with Evernote on the iPad Pro. I make notes and draw sketches using the Apple Pencil. The app is now attempting to auto-correct every hand-written mark I make, and this is very much undesirable and a productivity killer. After drawing a line, Evernote automatically straightens it, or turns my "o" into zeroes, and any number of other similar corrections. If I click the Undo button, Evernote reverts the auto-correction to my initial sketch, which was my intent anyway. The app was not doing this earlier this week. What has happened? How do I disable this "feature"? Did I inadvertently change a setting? I have looked through the settings menu but do not see anything that seems relevant. Help. Please.
  16. A new suggestion in relation to using a PEN and HANDWRITING on WINDOWS 10 devices: I use a Samsung Galaxy SPro with Windows 10 device (similar to MS Surface). This device comes with a pen, however, I can't use the pen in the Windows 10 app or on the web version for Evernote. Could we please have the option of clicking on a 'pen' icon for handwriting in Evernote Desktop and Evernote Web? Similar to the Android App, whereby we can use a pen to handwrite in Evernote, merely by clicking on the pen button. I'd love this as a standard option in Desktop and Web versions, seeing most people are moving towards mobile and touch screen devices with Windows 10 and a pen. Many thanks for considering this. Kind regards Bianca
  17. EN does a really good job of recognizing handwriting in a jpeg file, but doesn't apply it to pdf's. I use a sheet fed scanner to scan in multiple pages of handwritten notes. I can scan them as pdf's and send them directly to EN, which is easy, but with no recognition. If I scan them as jpegs, EN treats each page as a separate note. It's a major hassle trying to merge them into one note. First, notes are always merged with the most recent on top, so you need to scan them in reverse order. Second, there are large and unnecessary headers and titles for each page, that need to be removed manually. I have made it work, but it adds a HUGE amount of time to an otherwise simple workflow. It would be SO MUCH EASIER if you would simply apply the handwriting recognition to pdf's.. Thanks for considering
  18. Hey guys! I was using evernote the other day on my tablet and was using an input method in which the base of the screen was a white space that i could write on with my stylus and that converted the written words into proper text and punctuation up top on the page. I went back to do so again today and just can't figure out how it is i got to that particular tool. Every other method i come across is strictly the handwritten way that doesn't convert to text. Please help!
  19. The handwriting tool is OK, but the pen is too thick, even on smallest setting. Needs a range of smaller thiner sizes.

    I should be able to open an Evernote note on my iPad and write notes with a stylus directly into an existing note or create a new handwritten note without resorting to Penultimate. Penultimate is an awful app that truly does not even integrate well with the rest of Evernote. Handwriting needs to be seamless. Onenote for iPad recently introduced such a feature and it works but not fluidly enough. Still, its better than what Evernote has for handwriting. I want all my notes together, regardless of what kind they are, and handwriting needs to be fully integrated, not some add on kludge. The first company with smooth, fully integrated handwriting support will blow the other out of the water.

    Search within written notes

    Hello How can I search *within* handwritten notes? I've been using EN for about a year, mostly to take handwritten notes at work during the day, and for course work in the evenings. My notes are written with a stylus on my Samsung 12.2 Pro directly into EN. Does EN have a feature by which I can search within the notes? Practically, I don't think I'd make the time to regularly export notes to another format like pdf or jpg, to have the search function - I'm asking if this feature exists within the handwriting format. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks for your consideration and help.
  22. So I am rushing around making notes toself....open my tablet and Evernote pops up with Quick Note....it wants me to type..boo hoo...wanna handwrite!!!! Please Please Please give us a choice or something! THanks!
