  1. Firstly, BRAVO for having the BACK button work. That's a HUGE benefit in matching my Mental Model to the UI Model. Humans will often think in terms of "what was that think I was looking at a minute ago". It's things like that which make it much better than Google Keep. It would be great (and I bet fairly simple) to have a FORWARD button as well. (or an un Back button). So if I looked at item 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 I could go BACK BACK to 4, 3. Then FORWARD to 4, 5 Basically it lets me move backward AND forward in time.
  2. Evernote is very limited to organization, this leaves us wanting many things. Should be able to add new blocks within existing blocks, this would help to create new topics within the same theme, without having to create other blocks atoa just to complement something ... For example: I create a block called "Matter "and within it I want to create blocks of all the subjects that I study, and within each subject I want to create several topics. A practical example: I create a block called Matter, inside it I create a Mathematical Matter, and inside the Mathematics Block I want to create other blocks addressing the theme; Algebra, Geometry, Functions. And for each block I can add new blocks, and new notes. That would give a HUGE help. I need this a lot, because I deal with various calculations, and among other things. Please! *Sorry my english, I'm not American.
  3. I would love a feature which tagged notes atuomatically based on the notebook they were placed in. For example, if I had a notebook for my chemsitry school notes, I could set it to auto tag with year11, chemistry, and school. This would be a great feature that would really make EN a lot more useful!
  4. I use a lot of lists in all my evernote notes in the app. In the list's I use the indent and outdent buttons a whole ton as well. It's really annoying though that you have to leave the keyboard and go into another menu every time you need either one. So I thought of an idea that would be really convenient in my opinion. I think it would be awesome if to indent and outdent in lists could be done with a left or right swipe with the finger on the screen. I checked and that action currently does not serve any function at all. I think it would be a really easy thing to program into the app as well. Just give the finger swipe in the typing screen, the action of either indent or outdent, depending on which direction you swiped. I don't see any reason not to add this feature.
  5. I carry with me multi-GB notebooks, where each note could be a few MB due to pictures and pdfs (for instance food recipes). These are no fit for 4G connections with usage restrictions, and so I have opted to make them offline. Unfortunately, this consumes all available space on my 16GB Android phone (Xperia Z2), and so I have bought a 32GB expansion card. Now customer support is telling me I cannot manually set the download location! This should be user configurable - either on a per-notebook basis, or as a general setting. So I am raising this as a improvement suggestion for the developers. Other threads dealing with this problem: ThisSelectable offline folder path?
  6. A suggestion that would be a huge boon to my worklow: allow multiple main windows on the desktop. My main use for this would be in processing my 'inbox': Window #1 would have my 'inbox' query; all the notes pending actions and tagging. Then Window #2 is for searching among my other notes to find actionable information and things. Since some of my notes are simple things like 'add item X to list Y', this would speed me up greatly (currently I have to switch views to find note Y, then go back to inbox search). Also would be useful for seeing two sets of notes side by side (as compared to searching 'any' of two tags, which interleaves the two sets of notes in the search results). This could be a "new window" command under the "view" menu, or just allowing two instances of the app at the same time (i.e. middle-clicking the EN icon on the taskbar would open another one).
  7. 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
  8. Dear dev team, I like Evernote very much, but I don't use it for typing. Why? very uncomfortable. i'm a professionnal writer and I'm writing in hirizontal mode by 2 tumbs. In evernote horiz interface you left only 4 lines of the text. It's very few!!! Please add the possibility to switch off all unuseful boards. Look at the good example: the format boards appear only after SELECTION. I hope you'll try to create your app more comfortable for people who are really WRITING Thanks for your attention See the examples in the attach file.
  9. I'm an avid programmer, and I love using Evernote to keep track of all the projects I start but never finish. Sometimes I use Evernote to jot down some quick pseudocode, or to store some code to look at later. This works great, as it keeps all my ideas and thoughts in one place, Evernote. However, the unconfigurable behavior of the tab key in Evernote bothers me more than it probably should. Obviously, I indent stuff a lot when coding, and often copy and paste the raw code written in Evernote into a real IDE. (Which Evernote is not.) However I've noticed that the code I paste in consistently has non-standard indenting. Investigating more closely, I've noticed that the tab key, which I use for indentation, isn't really a tab key in Evernote. Instead, hitting tab simply inserts 5 spaces into the note. I don't mind that the tab key doesn't insert a true "tab" character, but it bothers me that Evernote inserts 5 spaces for indentation. I've never seen a style guide in my life, for programming or otherwise, that recommends five spaces for indentation. I really wish that Evernote would insert 4 spaces instead. I understand that changing the default might be a non-starter, since it is probably the way it is for a reason, but can we at least get a configuration option for tab size?
  10. Highlight different colors So far, we don't have the option to highlight things by different colors. There's only yellow. We should have the option to choose. Pre-established headings On OneNote, from Microsoft, we have the option to choose between Headings, just like a google doc. We don't have this option on Evernote. I'd have to do them manually, which takes a lot more work. Password for sections/notebooks So far, we can only encrypt texts within notes, but not the whole note or section. I'd suggestion both. People can erase an encrypted section without password. wrong! It should require the password to erase encrypted sections. Sections within notes It should have the option to create different sections inside the same note. So far, I can put a line. But that doesn't show sections on the left bar as a drop down menu. Not clear how I view only the note, without the sidebar Option to change colors of the dashboard and notes. Add color to notebooks to make it easier to differentiate what they are about.
  11. Suggestion: a list like the numbered one, or the "combobox" type, that each item can be moved up/down, this will certainly help to manage priorities.
  12. I would really appreciate it if the following features were added to the text editor for the Desktop PC edition of EverNote. 1. Allow me to change the font size to any font I want within a 0.5 pixel range. That's It, I will let you know when I have more. Your loyal paying customer. - DigitalN0mad
  13. Hi everyone! I had an idea, and I was curious what you think. Sometimes my notes start to get a bit messy because I have multiple sections. For example, my Daily To-Do list has a section for today, this week, this month, 3 months, and also a section to keep track of my progress. What if Evernote included a simple option -- you could highlight text and click "hide", which would take away the selection and create a little sideways arrow in its place. When you click on the arrow, it could flip downwards, as the selection gets toggled to "show". This could be a nice, easy way to keep tabs on everything -- and to keep our notes cleaner / more accessible. Thanks, Michael
  14. Hi everyone! First of all, Evernote it's a great and helpfull app. Thanks for that. I don't know if anyone suggested this before, but, it would be great if we had an option to "archive" old notes. I mean, with the pass of time, more and more notes accumulate. I erase some of them, but I would like to keep others saved, just in case, but not in the main menu. I think it would be very helpfull, to keep everything more organized. And not a very difficult option to add. Well, that's all!
  15. It would be really useful to have a 'pinned' or 'starred' feature to keep particular notes at the top of a list within Notebook view – for example, to keep an Index page. Some background: I'm a medical student and have been using Evernote to organise my academic and personal life for the past year. Despite a few little flaws, I love how functional and well-integrated it is across my devices, and that its features improve with each update. I can't imagine organising anything without it anymore, and absolutely can't recommend it highly enough.
  16. I have a lot of tags, nested in the way I like. However, to add a new tag to this mix is time consuming - requiring a lot of dragging and closing/opening tag hierarchies. There are many others in the same boat, but I have not seen this idea mentioned so I mention it here - apologies if I missed it and please move accordingly. IMHO, Evernote tag management could be significantly strengthened if the user was presented an option on right-click of any tag to move it - and then a subsequent clickable hierarchy was presented - exactly in the same manner that the 'move to notebook' operates with notes. This could be a feature for at least both Windows and Mac clients.
  17. In a typical Windows standard conceptual framework, some users with at least little experience might want to change the focus for active window from whichever is the element one has clicked with the primary mouse button the last. After this, one can move throughout elements by using the directional arrows in a keyboard. This doesn't happen with the reminders list, but rather, the focus remains in the notes for the last notebook that has been active. I bet that's a desirable characteristic from which users might benefit in usability. To have the opportunity to move throughout elements with the directional arrow keys from the keyboard. Continue the great work you do with Evernote. Thanks.
  18. In the windows application it's a daily nuisance for me that the title line is part of the note, so that when scrolling down the title line disappears.
  19. I would love to see a style feature that one could select the font, font size, color, and style (bold, italic..) and create these things that would be a default for their titles, topics, examples, articles, citations, definitions, relevant information, etc. People would be able to select it easily from a drop-down menu and the selected text would be of that style. Users would be able to create custom styles; Users would be able to apply the style to all notes using it or just the notes created after the changes happened. Why this should be implemented: Improves speed a lot for those who like to keep a pattern of colors and fonts for different things; Reduces rework if someone wants to change their default font, size, or anything for all their notes. Ex: I want the titles to be bold and to remove all uppercase from then, that would apply to all the notes with that style.
  20. Please add the ability to create cloud only notebooks. I want to put some type of notes in a web only (archive) notebook, which I do not want to download local or sync with my other computers.
  21. Hi. It would be nice, if people could define their own hand drawn icons or marks as a "smart stickers" instead of messing with physical stickers. So I would like to draw a "lighting" symbol by pen and teach the Evernote to recognise it as "Action" tag. Or the lamp as "idea" symbol. Hope to see it in future. Thanks for reading. Michael
  22. It is well known that a common issue with meetings is that ACTIONS are not captured and followed-up on. Now that Evernote is becoming more business-focused, this seems an area where it could offer something. So, my suggestion - add functionality to the Evernote mobile app to allow you to take a photo of a series of actions written on a Whiteboard (that have been written down during a meeting), and then 'magically' transform this into a To Do list style note. This note can then be shared with multiple participants. The evernote app can already do some of this, but there is not yet the functionality to transform the photo into a written Evernote note with checklists against items. I know this isn't a simple bit of functionality, but I believe it would be possible, even if the user had to do some manual corrections. I believe Evernote having some 'killer' tools to improve meetings would fit well with their current business focus. Just a thought... Stu
  23. My intent is to be able to view my notes in List View with the following columns: Name, Tags, and Due Date. Obviously the first two are currently available, but the latter is not; the only way to currently view due dates on notes is either in the Card or Snippet views. Even then, thought, you're only able to view notes with due dates separately from the notes themselves. I think the addition of a Due Date column in List View--with the ability to sort them--would create a better flow. It would not only give me an easier way to view upcoming tasks/notes, but also be able view tasks/notes that need to have a due date. If I didn't already imply it, notes that don't have a due date would simply be clumped together at the bottom or top of the list (but not separated from the rest) based on how you sorted the list. With this addition, it'd also be nice to have a pop-up dialog box for adding due dates to notes without having a open the note itself (i.e. right-click context "Add Due Date" that opens a dialog box for adding a date/time). Not only would serve an easier way to add due dates, but give us the ability to add due dates to multiple items that need to be due at the same time (or due dates removed from multiple items). If you guys could add this option to Android/IOS, as well, we'd be best friends. I must also add my most needed request to each and every suggestion I put on here: please, please, please, add multi-select with multi-tag/-move/-delete of notes in Android/IOS. The mobile OS for each already provide a native way of long-press to multi-select. Thanks for the great product, guys/gals! I've been a faithful premium member for over 2 years now, and don't see me changing that anytime soon. Keep up the good work, and God bless!

    chrome YT Clipper

    Hi, I'm constantly watching YouTube videos and transcribing (manually or typing) what is said, but it takes me a lot of time and energy. Than I've wondered: wouldn't it be nice if Evernote had a transcript (checkbox) feature when clipping from YouTube videos? For me it would be awesome, a productivity boost! And I believe that for many other people too: so that we could highlight and find the important information of the video through the search feature. YouTube already have a transcription feature (when it have subtitles) that could be extracted to evernote. And it would be nice to keep some "time tags" (with hyperlinks) to go to the specific part of the video that contains the written information. TED Talks have a interesting transcription system, too; and it would be nice if it had the same features (preset) that Evernote Clipper offers on YouTube. That's it. Thanks.
