  1. Konichiwa, Evernote Community. Pleased to see you. Let's get into it. Keyboard navigation. What are your favourite hacks and workflows and keyboard shortcuts in Evernote? I am currently seeking the keyboard shortcut to tab around the note space. For example, when I open a new note (^⌥⌘-N) it drops me into the main note taking space. But without touching the trackpad, how to I edit notebook and tags? Inquisitive minds would like to know!
  2. 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.
  3. Hello all, the option format->lists->increase (and decrease) list levels works from the toolbar, but not the assigned shortcut key (tab / shift tab). Is this a bug or am I missing a newer shortcut? build 6.0.5 (451190) direct.
  4. My boss recently updated to (EN Business with Spaces). His shortcuts were missing, and it looks like they are no longer on the web version. He is using Windows 7 Pro. Synchronize Shortcuts is checked in Options. What happened and can this be recovered.
  5. I'd like to suggest an improvement to the usability of the Shortcuts entry in the sidebar - it took me a few attempts to work out how to use it. This problem is that this is the only sidebar entry that doesn't do anything when you click it - instead, you have to use the tiny grey arrow to the left to expand a menu entry. This is not at all obvious given the behaviour of all the other items in this menu. Can I suggest that clicked the text of the Shortcuts text either expands the menu directly, or shows a list of shortcuts in a similar manner as clicking the Tags entry?

    Shortcuts in Mac app

    Shortcuts have stopped working in the last couple of updates to the Evernote Mac app. They work fine on my phone and on the web. What's up? Thanks Dan Kennedy
  7. Seems random that we can't add shortcuts just because we didn't personally create the note. Makes it hard for businesses who use Evernote on a daily basis for projects, processes, etc.
  8. Hey y'all, I'm running Evernote on Mac and was wondering if there is a keyboard shortcut to move the focus to the list while in list view? I searched this forum and the help documents but couldn't find anything (so please excuse if I was just too dim to find it ;-) Thanks!
  9. 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
  10. It would be nice to structure the shortcuts sidebar. Things get messy with notes, notebooks, searches all mixed up together. I can think of non-clickable headlines or simple line dividers as structuring elements.
  11. 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?
  12. For some reason (other than old age!), I've had the hardest time learning the keyboard shortcut keys in the Evernote Windows program for moving among the Left Panel, the Note List , and the current note I'm editing. It's annoying to have to use the mouse for all that. I had all the information in a list-of-all-the-shortcuts note buried in a Using Evernote notebook that I'd created. But I wanted faster access. So I created a note whose first line (and therefore title) was "TAB: Left<>Search<>List<>Title". In the body of the note, I expanded on this with some instructions: Use the Tab key to move from Left Panel > Search Bar > Note List > Title field of current note. Shift+Tab reverses direction. Tab from Title field moves to body of note. Use Esc to move from body of note to Note List. Then--and here comes the brilliant part--I dragged the note onto the shortcuts (which I keep in the toolbar at top). I massaged the note title till it was as above, which will completely display in the shortcuts. Now, whenever I forget, I can just glance at my toolbar, and there's the basic info as a shortcut: "TAB: Left<>Search<>List<>Title". If that proves too cryptic, I can always click on it and bring up the note. Thank you, folks, thank you very much.
  13. It would be great to be able to use the Home, End, Page Up and Page Down keys to navigate within notes. I can't think of another text editor that doesn't make use of these keys. Surely this would be trivial to implement. Thanks for your attention.

    Synchronization issue

    Hello, I recently had to reinstall my computer and then Evernote. Since I've done that I have a synchornization issue. It seems to go up to the end, according to the log. As a result : - The log tells Synchornization error - The Synchro icon shows an error - The Shortcuts are not synchronized. This is my second computer. Everything goes well on the first one. Here are the last few lines from the log file : 18:43:25 [INFO ] [10192] [3100] 100% Submitting a batch of 311 note calls, size=214 KB 18:43:59 [INFO ] [10192] [17896] 100% Submitting a batch of 373 note calls, size=473 KB 18:44:01 [INFO ] [10192] [15976] Client synchronization finished, status: failed 18:44:01 [INFO ] [10192] [15976] * elapsed time: 8m 16s 18:44:01 [INFO ] [10192] [15976] * 294 items received 18:44:31 [INFO ] [10192] [7152] Registered session count: 1, last session: 2017/11/01 18:30:00 I tried to reinstall Evernote with no better success. I also tried various fixes (from Ctrl-Help menu) on the first computer, but no changes. Any idea of what I can do to fix that problem? Thank you. Patrick
  15. can any one else confirm that on default settings not only "Ctrl+Alt+N" opens a new note, but also "Alt+N" does? It is a bit of a problem as "Alt+N" is needed to type "ń" when the language is set to Polish. As long as Evernote is running, I have new notes popping up every time I try to type "ń" in any application. This can of course be changed in options, but as they say, you don't get a second chance to make a good first impression. No such problem on my mac.
  16. One of Evernote's primary strengths the workflow provided by its keyboard-friendly UI, which allows you to accomplish many things in a fraction of the time required to point and click. Reminders have been without keystroke support for a long time, and it's a major workflow disruption. Please consider a quick fix, which could be accomplished without dedicating an official "Keyboard Shortcut," by simply adding a keystroke sequence that lets you move through the File menu: Just as Copy Note Link is available mouse-free (Alt, N, L) , Add Reminder could be accessible via Alt, N, R (currently unused)
  17. The current system limit for shortcuts is 250, even for premium members. Compare this to the system limit for tags, which is 100K. I'm not sure why there's such a discrepancy. Regardless, 250 shortcuts simply isn't enough for many users, including power users. I'd like to see this limit increased to at least 1K for premium members and ideally for all members.
  18. I would appreciate it if when adding a note to the Shortcut List, particularly in iOS, that shortcut is added to the top of the list rather than the bottom. This would be particularly useful for “note a day journaling” as it would arrange shortcuts in order, the most current (today’s) at the top (and visible in a longer list) without having to edit the list and drag it to the top. A related but less essential request would be to allow the re-arrangement of shortcuts in the list without having to first put the list into an edit mode.
  19. I use Evernote on three devices iPhone, iPad, and Windows PC. I modify the shortcuts every week to keep track of my schedule in Evernote. I see sometimes that the shortcuts are not synced properly. The shortcuts of the previous week override the shortcuts of the current week on my PC, after using iPad for example. One week difference on itself was not a big problem for me. However, today, I ran into a disaster, after using my iPad, Evernote decided to sync the shortcuts of six months ago and to remove the shortcuts of this week. This is a big problem for me and makes me question whether I want to keep the premium version next year. Is there a way to get the latest version of the shortcuts? Or are they lost forever and we should not expect from Evernote that the shortcuts will be synced properly across different platforms. This seems to be a problem of the latest iOS version, because I didn't have this problem with the previous versions before 8.0.
  20. 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!

    Delete Multiple Shortcuts at Once

    I searched ("delete multiple shortcuts") and didn't see this as a suggestion, and I also contacted support and the woman who responded suggested that I post this as a feature request . . . I would love to have a way to delete multiple shortcuts at once from the sidebar in the Mac desktop client. It's really easy to accidentally drag and drop notes onto the shortcut bar (if your hand slips even a bit when trying to move notes into a different notebook). When it's just one or two notes, it's no problem, but there are times I've accidentally added a couple of dozen notes to the shortcuts bar, and it's really tedious to delete them individually. Please come up with a feature that allows us to delete multiple notes at once. I'd even be happy with a feature that wipes all the shortcuts (rather than just hiding them, which I am able to do now). Thanks!
  22. Other note systems can do the following which I personally find really helpful. Say you have written a list ITEM1 ITEM2 ITEM3 ITEM4 ITEM5 You then highlight one of the entries and then use the keyboard SHIFT + ALT + UP-ARROW or SHIFT + ALT + DOWN-ARROW to move an item up and down the list.
  23. I love the new Evernote Web Clipper. My one issue is that I am unable to take advantage of the keyboard shortcuts as the shortcut for taking the screenshot is the same as deleting a message in Gmail. Every time I delete a message in Gmail, Web Clipper takes over my browser with a screen shot and the Skitch arrow. While Gmail does allow me to change my shortcuts, I don't want to because of the design of my keyboard, and it is already in muscle memory. I use Gmail far more than Evernote. Unfortunately, Evernote Clipper doesn't allow me to change the shortcut for screen shots or just disable that one short cut, it is all or nothing. Please allow editing of keyboard shortcuts as you can in the Evernote Desktop Client.
  24. On Evernote for Windows, when I add a note to shortcuts and try to open it, it only opens to the notebook the note is in. Is this normal...? I'm a relatively new (Plus) user, but from what I've read, a shortcut to a note is supposed to open to the actual note. Because that is logical. It works like that on my Android. Does anybody else have this issue? Am I doing it wrong?
  25. 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.
