  1. Hello all, I've started using Evernote last week as I've been trying to standardize and centralize my note taking efforts. When I initially started working with Evernote, I only launched the webapp version which I started enjoying right away. I love the clean design and how responsive it is. I started using it quite heavily and the more I use it the more I am frustrated with the lack of certain "obvious" features that should be available. The most annoying of which are: No shortcuts available - Here I am not referring to shortcuts that apply to creating a new note, or toggle to a different notebook, etc; I'm referring to text input shortcuts such as a shortcuts for bullet points, for indentation especially, etc. My note taking efficiency significantly suffers if I constantly have to take my fingers off the keyboard so I can make an indentation or create a bullet point No Image Resize capability - This one just seems like it's a no brainer. The typical workflow for my note taking is sitting in a meeting and capturing notes and at the end I'll take a pic of a whiteboard or something along those lines. I use the evernote phone app to upload the pics to the respective note, and on my webapp version, these images are huge with no possibility of resizing. So now I have to open Evernote Desktop app to resize these pictures which is pretty ridiculous to me Other simple UI fixes; for example in the webapp, when you highlight a bunch of words and click to "insert a link", the box drops down with two fields: the link text and the link itself, however for some reason the cursor doesn't automatically go in the link box and in fact it just disappears which requires me to have an extra click. This is not the end of world, but it would be such a simple fix. When I'm taking notes, 90% of the time I'm documenting a meeting and an extra click slows me down quite significantly So why don't I use the desktop app directly you ask? Because from a UI design perspective the webapp is much more attractive. The design is much cleaner, note previews look much better and I'm finding much better response times with the webapp. Not only that, literally everything I work with nowadays runs in a browser (email, gdocs, music, etc) so I'd prefer to continue using my browser for note-taking as well. Also, when switching between the webapp and the desktop app, I constantly notice discrepancies between notes. For example, I'll find areas of text that are bolded in my desktop app but not in webapp. Implementing these features (or bug-fixes) seem like low hanging fruit and going through quite a few posts on this community forum, it seems like they would truly bring value to your users as they've definitely been in-demand (some even for a couple of years). Hell, even make these features part of your "Premium" offering and I'll purchase it right away. The lack of these features is not holding me back from using your otherwise awesome platform, however there's always going to be an asterisk when recommending it to a friend.
  2. After using the keyboard shortcut <ALT + SHIFT + B> to change a note's notebook, the program's focus disappears and I can no longer use the keyboard to navigate until I click somewhere with the mouse. Is there a why to restore the program's focus without using the mouse?
  3. before the new update, I had notes and notebooks that I use regularly on a toolbar across the top. I just drag the title of one I wanted to use regularly and it would add it, just like adding an icon to my windows quick link toolbar. Now I can't find it. is it a feature no longer included or am I just an idiot that can't figure it out ??? thanks much!
  4. When it comes to productivity, the ability to use keyword shortcuts which can be customized to personal tastes, is very important. Hard-wiring shortcuts in apps assumes that the user must remember those. Secondly, even if an user does so, it does not consider if he(she) can comfortably use those. A simple use case: While using Evernote for reading several long clipped articles on my laptop, I would like to recline a little in my chair. I want to highlight, change color, increase font size of selected text, and copy a note link, and so on, in that state. I do not want to switch between my mouse and keyboard for small but frequent edits. I want functionalities through keyboards shortcuts to be equally accessible as through the mouse/touchpad. I want functionalities through keyboards shortcuts to be easily accessible as through the mouse/touchpad. I want editing functionalities accessible through one (say mouse/touchpad) should not be inaccessible through the other. I should be free to use either as I please. But the predefined shortcuts are not friendly. For most shortcuts I have to use my both hands. For some, I have to lean forward. This makes reading/editing much difficult, particularly if that has to be done for longer hours.
  5. Does anyone know how to highlight an area of text using Evernote on the web? A control -shift -h command brings up history rather than highlight.
  6. I transcribe my Evernote audio notes once a week from within Evernote, pressing play on the audio note and then transcribing right below. However, sometimes I need to pause the audio to catch up. Taking my hands off the keyboard to press 'Pause' with the mouse is extremely inconvenient and I cannot seem to find a keyboard shortcut to pause the audio. Is there a keyboard shortcut to pause Evernote Audio Notes on the Mac Evernote client?
  7. I've seen this mentioned in the "asking for password' thread, but it deserves its own mention: shortcuts based on saved searches aren't showing up on the Shortcuts screen in 8.0.4. They worked find in previous versions. (They display correctly on the web and the PC client, and my full list of saved searches displays correctly in the search screen). Reinstalling the app didn't help... and I'm growing a wee bit tired of reinstalling Evernote every point update. These shortcut-based saved searches allow Evernote to work as an awesome GTD (Getting Things Done) client, so they're very important to many of us.
  8. Hi, I can add notes to shortcuts BUT I see nowhere to show my shortcuts. I've searched everywhere but don't find a way to reveal shortcut list. Please help. Thanks in advance.
  9. Surely others have asked for this before. It is such a desirable feature that I can't understand why it isn't already a part of the program. The user should have the ability to change the sort order of the notes with hotkeys. Let me hit a couple of keys to instantly change the sort order of my notes. Sometimes I want them sorted by name in the normal sequence. Sometimes I want them sorted by the update but in reverse order. I actually don't use Evernote for some of the work I would like it to do simply because it is too slow to change the sort order with the mouse and menus. The ability to make instant sort changes would be a fabulous power to have. Joe
  10. Pulling down doesn't reveal a reminders filter button in a saved shortcut listing. Often, I have a saved shortcut to skim for notes tagged in several related projects, and would like to be able to isolate notes that are marked with reminders as opposed to those that are just reference material without making separate shortcuts.
  11. When I use the EN shortcut to create a new note (Ctrl + Alt + N) or just Ctrl + N when EN is active, the note opens but is instantly minimised. Kinda defeats the object of the shortcut. It would be easier to use the mouse to press the button... Is there a particular reason for this? Win 7 64 bit Evernote for Windows (196948) Prerelease Snippet view | Note panel disabled Thanks, Scott
  12. I like having shortcuts at the top of my sidebar, but I only want notes there that I choose. I haven't found a way to prevent Evernote from automatically adding recent notes to that list. It's a problem in that it pushes my list of stacks/notebooks down too far, and it clutters my otherwise useful shortcuts list, which I like to keep lean for quickly accessing my most-used notes.
  13. Hello, I've already read: "What are the keyboard shortcuts in Evernote for Windows?" in help section: Help & Learning >> Tips & Tutorials >> Pro Tips >> What are the keyboard shortcuts in Evernote for Windows? But, in Chrome for example "Add Hyperlink (Crtl + K)" does not work. (I'm Windows user). Please can you fix, or update the help's doc? Thanks!
  14. hey to all! Wondering how can i change default hot keys for Skitch especially Crosshair Snapshot? I'm using Box app which have same shortcut for video capturing so both running same time.. And i can't find how to change it in both Thanks!
  15. Hi, I often use Evernote as reminder in replace for Mac Reminder app. To save time, I need to be able to assign a shortcut to action "Add a reminder to this note" ( which I have to click, and choose couple of options to finish). I think by Simplifying and Add this action to "Menu Bar" which I can use Automator to assign a shortcut to it, we can save time and be more productivity.
  16. My Shortcuts list in the sidebar is egregiously long because it's so useful -- though one negative side effect is the "Recent Notes" list drops below the fold when my laptop isn't connected to a monitor (my second most frequently-accessed area because switching back and forth between multiple notes is such a common behavior). It would be awesome to be able to make Folders for different Shortcut collections so they could be collapsed depending on context. Right now I use a hack to separate the chunks with a dummy "spacer" note, but actual folders would be way more elegant and bring the Recent Notes back into play... (on a related note, it would be awesome to just be able to move Recent Notes to the top. And make it more items as needed ;-P).
  17. What do we usually do to bring order to our notes? - CMD + L. Change the title - CMD + ‘. Add tags. - CMD + CTRL + M. Move to another notebook. - CMD + SHIFT + F. Clear format to get rid of visual garbage. 4 different patterns for 4 most common operations aimed at the same goal. Seriously?? If Evernote is indeed for proffesionals, there should be the option to change shortcuts. Not only those called "global" - all of them! Thank you.
  18. It's wonderful that we have the ability to add a note as a shortcut. However, shortcuts are global. Sometimes, I think it would be handy to be able to have shortcuts that are specific to a notebook or a tag. These tag/notebook-specific shortcuts would be limited to notes. So, perhaps to avoid confusion with shortcuts (which can be any number of things: notes, tags, searches, notebooks), we should call these tag/notebook-specific shortcut notes "pinned notes". These pinned notes could operate similar to how Reminders currently work. If you want to pin a note, you can click a "pin note" icon / choose a "pin note" option from a menu. Then, whenever you view a list of notes containing a pinned note, there would be a collapsible section called "Pinned Notes" which lists the pinned notes, the same way that there is currently a collapsible section for Reminders. The notes listed in the Pinned Notes collapsing area would be the pinned notes that match the current list criteria -- the same behavior that the Reminders section has.
  19. My EN keyboard shortcuts don't work. For instance, shift+cmd+N, instead of creating a new note in EN, brings up a new window in Safari. I tried checking keyboard preferences, but there are no EN options there. Thanks in advance.
  20. Hello. I like and use the shortcuts bar in Windows, but sometimes it gets too cluttered. I would like the ability to abbreviate or rename shortcuts without changing the title of the note, the tag label, or the saved search label, which is currently the only way to shorten the shortcut. Thanks for listening.
  21. Hello, I have recently reinstalled Windows and all programs I use. I noticed Evernote has override a few desktop shortcuts I use, which is annoying, because I cannot even type an email address without interruption and need to set my keyboard to English. I tried to disable shortcuts in the Options menu, but cannot find that options. When I erase the shortcuts from Shortcuts Menu, they keep going back. I need to disable them in general, as I do not use these.
  22. I have set up shortcuts on the Web Clipper. When I press the 'Alt' key, the Clipper is set to start. I have set the keyboard shortcut of 'Simplified article' to 'c'. On Chrome on Mac, when I press 'Alt', the clipper loads, and then pressing 'c' alone automatically shows the simplified article preview. However, on Chrome (Version 53.0.2785.143 m) on Windows 10 (Version 1607 - Build 14393.222) - I have to press 'Alt' to load the clipper and then instead of 'c' alone, I have to again press 'Alt'+'c' (in quick succession) to get it to switch to 'Simplified article' mode. Is this supposed to be like this or are they supposed to be consistent?
  23. I have a number of saved searches and notes that I keep in the Shortcuts list. However, they are constantly disappearing on me after a day or two. I cannot figure out what is causing them to disappear. I will drag them all to Shortcuts and then when I come back into Evernote later, the Shortcuts list is empty. This has been occurring for a couple months. I primarily use Windows desktop version on multiple PC's, but also access the data from my iPhone and iPad. I have three premium accounts between me and the wife and my kids have free accounts that requires switching between these accounts frequently. This issue appears to occur with all the accounts. I searched and couldn't seem to find any other discussions around issues with the Shortcuts feature. Maybe I just don't understand the Shortcuts feature correctly.
  24. Hi, I've been opening many Note windows, but it is time-consuming to use mouse to adjust size and position of Note windows. For other apps like Chrome, Slack, Terminal,.. I'm using Spectacule App to manipulate Windows with shortcuts. However Spectacule cannot work with Evernote. I suspect that Evernote does not follow Cocoa Framework as the statement says spectacle-does-not-work-with-all-applications. Please make Windows manipulation fantastic with Shortcuts.
  25. I was just minding my own business trying to be clever, thinking I could export a list of tags. Without testing it using only a few tags first, I tried dropping all my tags onto a note in the sidebar. I guess it must have been a shortcut to a note, because the result is that there are 164 tags in the sidebar shortcuts list. Not a train smash. I could manually delete them one-by-one, but if there's a quick option it would be good to know it. I tried closing Evernote, editing the .plist file at ~/Library/Preferences/com.evernote.Evernote.plist, then opening Evernote. But it has no effect, and Evernote re-creates it. I tried opening the sqlite database, but it's encrypted which I guess I should be thankful for. I was able to find a script for exporting all tags via the EN API (shared as a tip here), but nothing for resetting the sidebar, or just the shortcuts list. Any ideas?
