One strange aspect of Evernote is that although it allows an amazing assortment of options for note taking, it does not offer many/any features to ease the reading process. Note taking goes hand in hand with reading, listening, viewing. I will often use the "Simplified Article" option within the Evernote Chrome plugin. When I view the simplified article I LOVE IT. The article become a maximum width, the images are organized carefully with the article. It becomes easier to view and read. However there's a catch. It doesn't save the article in that format within Evernote. I understand that the point of the simplified feature is not about readability as opposed to removing parts of the page that may not relate to the article. However as a matter of user experience, it's confusing to _view_ the reader-friendly page in the browser but not see it in the application. My suggestion: A readability option for all notes. A button that will duplicate what the "Simplified Article" button does in the browser plugin. This is a problem that has been solved by others in the past and can be duplicated - https://mercury.postlight.com/reader/
I use Evernote Web Clipper to frequently save recipes I find online that I like. However, with one of the updates, the Simplified Article feature started dropping the numbers in front of text (for recipes this is especially problematic). As an example, if you go to http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/chocolate-fudge-with-bourbon-sugar, the first part of the recipe states: Bourbon Sugar1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise 1 cup demerara sugar 2 tablespoons bourbon But after clipping using Simplified Article, this becomes: bourbon sugarvanilla bean, split lengthwise demerara sugar tablespoons bourbon This hasn't always functioned this way because I have older notes that have clipped the simplified article properly. Looking back in my notes, I have an article from 7/16/2014 that clipped properly and one from the next day, 7/17/2014, that dropped the numbers. I am currently using Evernote Web Clipper for Chrome (I haven't tested it in other browsers) version 6.2.6 (5e9ac9e/184.108.40.2066)
