  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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).
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.

  13. Web Clipper is definitely the most useful feature of the Evernote, but not having it on iPhone and iPad is very annoying. Using intermediary application is just tedious. As there is Clipper for Mac Safari, why isn't there one for iPad and iPhone. It's really time to create it.
  14. Hi, This message is composed by two topics about Evernote Web Clipper: the first is a suggestion and the other is a problem (bug). The suggestion: It would be good to have at least two colors avaiable for highlighting information into Web Clipper (and into Evernote as well), to be possible to differentiate important topics by their highlight color. This is specially important for reading (and clipping) blog content. The bug: I always highlight texts and clip them through Web Clipper; and I've noticed a very annoying bug. Very frequently, when I finish reading and highlighting a text and save it, when I look at the note inside Evernote, the text is not fully highlighted as I previously did (it "stops recording" my highlights at some random point). This is a incredible annoying bug, specially in long texts, when I lose a big chunk of highlighted information, and have to dedicate a lot of time to highlight it again. Please, fix this bug as soon as possible. I love Evernote, it is very important to my workflow: and I want to keep loving it. Thanks.
  15. Evernote Team, It would be really helpful if, while tagging a new note in the Evernote iPhone app, the list of tags were in alphabetical order and the blank tagging line searched for tags as they were typed in. When I'm scrolling through my list of tags I'm always worried I'm going to miss what I'm looking for, because they aren't in alphabetical order - I think they are in "most recent," correct? Also, when I'm typing a tag in the blank area there's no indication whether or not the tag already exists. It would be really great if there were "predicted tags" as I fill it in, so I don't duplicate or make singular or plural tags that should be merged. Thanks.
  16. Hello all, I have been using the web version for 2 days straight. I think that's an excellent user interface providing perfect user experience! I could barely use the previous version because it was too slow. It used to hang every couple of seconds or hang for each action! Honestly, I hated the online version before that new beta version come out I like the way everything is so smooth, icons/buttons are nicely distributed. There are obvious clear area here and there, but I find that very acceptable. In a matter of fact, that's wonderful. I don't have to find my screen stuffed with lots of controls to be satisfied. In addition, my brain is more comfortable where white space is more present. I just have one suggestion (or bug report). Whenever I add a horizontal line, I find myself able to write within the line itself! It stretches and transforms into a text box (Do you really create the horizontal line using a text box with zero height? ). Yeah, You can write within the horizontal line itself! Overall impression: It's AWESOME guys. Keep up the good work.
  17. Markers are very useful and look great for pointing out parts of an image. The 5 symbols provided help call attention to a marker but it would be useful to have the ability to choose a number as well. This would allow you to give steps to something you're pointing out, whether it be a form or something that needs to be given attention in a certain order. I realize you can put a number and an arrow/some text to accomplish this but they don't look as good and aren't as quick to use.
  18. I don't know where to put suggestions. I can't find any contact info, so if someone can help direct me, let me know. First I wanted to say, I absolutely love the clean look for the new beta version of Evernote. I stopped using this service years ago because the "clutter" was just driving me insane. Everytime I logged in I had a distracting mess of notes and pictures. And whenever I put some "NSFW" images on here and whenever I would log in, it was the first thing that I saw. With the streamlined beta version that doesn't happen anymore. I really want to jump on board and get the monthly subscription and everything. I want Evernote to be pretty much like my backup brain and just put everything in here. I am a more visual person, and I would love it if we could have more options to "view" our notes in particular notebooks. Different views for different types of notes, just like in any operating system. You can have a list view for documents or an icon view for pictures. I am a much more visual person and I like to include images in my notes, especially for ideas I get. The now defunct Springpad did this perfectly. I was considering migrating to them, but honestly they can't compare to Evernote. This type of style is becoming popular, and can be seen in sites like Pinterest or Tumblr. Although, I like to keep most of my ideas private and sites like Pinterest have more of a social media focus to it. I would love if we can have an "icon view" option like in Springpad. It can have a square with a summary of the note. If the note has an image, it can include and image with a shorter summary. Or it can include the image, with the text overlayed in white on top of it [like FB does]. Here is an example of Springpad
  19. Dillema: After finding a notebook by keyword I was stuck editing in a bit of a different 'search' layout still. I could close out that search box in the top position and go full screen on my note, but when I returned I was still in search mode, looking at a bunch of random notes that happened to have that keyword. I wanted my usual notebook > snippet > note mode with the notebook I was now working with after finding my note. But couldn't easily make that happen without going through the whole list like I was starting anew, which seemed unnecessary. Solution: Once I find a note, I would like a way to select and go to its notebook. Maybe by clicking the name of it (see image). That way I can be in my comfy, usual setting with that notebook's snippets to the left. This would also help me remember and associate the notes in that notebook for a better familiarity with my information. PS: So far I'm liking the web beta more than my Mac or Windows desktop UIs! I never cared for the web UI before. Great stuff. Thanks.
  20. Biggest to smallest: ••••Stack •••Notebook ••Note •Tag The icon bar at the left seems counterintuitive in the placement of notebook and note icons; notes should be below notebooks. Having just started using web beta and not being familiar with the icons—and moving very quickly—I keep hitting notes when I mean to hit notebooks. Hey, while we're at it, how about a Stack icon? I'd like that! Thanks!
  21. I think evernote first is a effective tool, the new version make me do everything slow. in new version, there are so huge blank region, and i must switch each item with long distance mouse movement. can you make it more compact?
  22. I consider the current functionality of Evernote atrocious, given its length of development, user base and resources available to it. There are major issues that interfere with usability and have me cursing the developers every single day I use it. The extension itself lags and interrupts tagging - my tags are sometimes broken into 3 pieces as I type because the extension interrupts the process multiple times. Consistent issue, unacceptable. UX fail. The broken tags (partial words) that result from UX issue#1 often lack the ability to delete (the small "x" does not appear) until I click over to the "tags" field and back to the individual tags. UX flaw. The extension should perform string matching instantly from the local database; instead, it lags. UX flaw. The extension should deliver "recently used tags" and "most used tags" options to facilitate clickable tagging. Obvious feature lacking. UX deficiency. The extension should clip near-instantly to local storage and synchronize in the background, not clip directly to the internet. I am left waiting dozens of seconds often, and sometimes the sync fails entirely and I must retry. UX fail.One further suggestion for the desktop client - just to get this complaint and suggestion complete: tags which are manually typed in should have an automatic type associated with them for easy searching. Similarly, all notes from web clipper should have a universal type applied. Those clipper issues I think are really indicative of lack of effort or diligence on Evernote's part. You've been at this years, you've built up a customer base of millions; and these features have been obvious every step of the way. Your software leads by sheer inertia and momentum, not by excellence. Please correct these specific deficiencies, and your software will be tremendously more user-friendly and useful. Looking forward to the improvements, and the Evernote staff response.
  23. I'm sure this will probably already have been suggested, but I'll post this anyway. For a while now I've been using the feature that allows you to send email direct into Evernote. in fact I've built up an entire stack of these emails. But a thought occurred to me, wouldn't it be great Evernote had a built in email client. This would allow you to send/receive emails directly from within Evernote and would eliminate the need to email specific messages into Evernote. You could simply just hit, add to stack. Just thought I'd put it out there. Gary
  24. Hi friends, I have a suggestion for the Evernote Mobile Client: If the default input Location could change to the Title area? I think should be better for increase the input efficiency. Kind Regards, Donnel
  25. I have a couple suggestions that would significantly improve the usability of Evernote on Android, at least for my usage style. I mainly use it to archive links to articles I've found interesting, and so will very often share to Evernote from other applications, such as Twitter clients, news readers, etc. The vast majority of the time, I just save the notes as they were generated, and do not mess with editing them at all. However, the keyboard still pops up every single time, and I have to WAIT for it to pop up every single time. This adds at least 2-4 seconds onto how long I have to just sit there and wait before I can do anything with the note. I have seen in other applications (such as Notif) the option to choose whether the keyboard activates upon opening or not, and such an option for Evernote would be a huge time-saver. It would seem to be straightforward to fix this by simply not making the "Title" text field active automatically, instead letting a user tap there IF they need to edit it at all, since the extra time required to do that would be markedly less than the time saved when editing is not needed. This would also have the added benefit of not automatically scrolling down past the header that lists the notebook, saving a user from having to always scroll back up in order to show it and select the proper notebook. If anything ought to be popping up automatically, it would seem to make more sense for it to be the notebook selection list than the cursor in the title. The other suggestion I have is to use the same notebook selection list in the note editing view as is used everywhere else in the application. Currently, in the note editing view, the font and spacing in the notebook selection list is absolutely huge, only allowing 7 notebooks to be displayed at a time (at least with my screen/resolution). In contrast, everywhere else in the Evernote app this list uses much more reasonably-sized text, allowing 10 notebooks to be seen at a time, and looking MUCH nicer and cleaner as well. This latter view also seems to load much faster than the former; when bringing up the former, a "Processing, please wait" box usually pops up for a couple seconds before the notebook selector comes up, while this is not seen with the more compact list style. Overall, I absolutely love Evernote, and find it indispensible. If these small suggestions could be implemented, it would just make the Evernote Android app just that much more polished and refined.
