  1. Hello, It would be nice to have the possiblility to add tags to notebooks so that, when creating a note inside a notebook, it could be automaticaly inherited from the notebook were it was created. - Cheers, Hugo
  2. Hi guys. Since a couple of days or maybe weeks, i can't any longer copy from evernote and paste to word without having formatting errors. It always used to work fine. See my attached files. I'm writing in Swedish. I'm using Evernote and Word on Mac osSierra.
  3. My problem: I would find it very useful to be able to convert a note into a word-document or similar text files which to my knowledge you cannot at the moment. The proposed solution: Add a feature under the "Share" menu on a note named "Convert to file" or something like that which creates a file with your note.
  4. Adding word count to Evernote Android/iOS app will help Evernote keep users who would otherwise use other apps because of the lack of this simple yet essential feature on Evernote. All kinds of writers depend on this feature! Journalists, content writers, students with writing assignments, short story writers, novelists, and so on. Add word count to Evernote Android/iOS app please. It's 2015!
  5. Evernote is a wonderful platform, but I have a concern and I am sure I am not alone. I want to use Evernote for managing all sorts of information related to work projects, but I want to have the ability to export them to a desktop folder to use elsewhere if I want to. As far as I can tell, Evernote supports exports in PDF and HTML, but this is not very useful to me. I would like to be able to export to .doc or .txt so I can use my data outside of Evernote if I ever choose to. Right now it seems that content is basically trapped in Evernote's ecosystem forever. Please tell me I am wrong.
  6. Hello All, If i open a Word file by evernote, the Word-language is in english. Even i safe the dokument in another language. So bevor i can start to work with a "Evernote"-Word-Dokument, i have to select the hole dokument an chance the language. Is there any other possibility? Doesn't Word safe the Dokument-Language? Thanks for your help. Best Regards Nicolas
  7. Others have asked this question over half a year ago in the Skitch forum here with not a single reply. I'm surprised at the lack of support. Since I have the same issue and it's relevant for general discussions, I thought I'd create a post here. We were able to capture an image in Skitch and simply drag & drop it into a Word doc in the office (Windows 7). At home though (Windows 7, 8 and 10), it cannot be done. No errors, the image just doesn't drag and drop into Word. Any ideas what could be going on? Losing some productivity here since our Word docs have dozens of captured images each. Thanks
  8. I have many long MS Word documents that I drag and drop into Evernote so they will be searchable. When I search for words I know are within those documents, the search results bring the notes up, but it does not take me directly to the place within the Word document where that word that I searched for occurs. I have to scroll through the Word document itself to find the occurrence. And even then the searched-for word is not highlighted or boxed as with search results for other types of notes. This gets frustrating as many of these documents are 50 pages or so long. Is this just something I have to deal with or is it fixable?
  9. Hello, I have a Word document and would like to know the best way to it into the Evernote. Until now I have to create a new note, then open Word, load the doc in it, make a copy and paste in the new note. Is there a speedier way for doing it ? Thank you all.
  10. [Idea] Evernote Box

    I have both a question as an idea for a pc add-on to evernote, so I'm going to start with the question: It's possible to copy notes or word documents from a pc to evernote? If it's not, How difficult could it be to make an add-od from Evernote to do it so? It sounds like a ludacris idea, and I don't know how ludacris could be from a programmer perspective, but it seems like a simple thing that it should have been done quite time ago. With nothing else to say, I leave it to your though, and I apologize for my awful english mix of words. P.S:I realized that you can not post this on this forum. I can not delete the post, so I hope to do a moderator.
  11. Picked up EN again (blank) and starting to put stuff in there. I've been a "member" since 2012. First off, 60MB is still NOT enough and should have been raised by now. Anyways, once reason I left EN and never bothered to pay for it was because the formatting in this thing is terrible. Tried to copy a simple Excel table into EN and all formatting is lost and becomes a complete mess. Tried to copy the table from Excel to Word, then to EN and same effect. Don't get me started on bullet lists. How are you going to make a notes app and can't get formatting properly? Yet, every other moment, EN is asking for me to pay for it? It's too bad Onenote looks terrible on mobile (that desktop look doesn't fit phones and tablets too well). I wish EN engineers would stop making the platform available for every platform and work on fixing long standing issues. It's a shame this app hasn't improved in the basic tasks in the last 3 years. The new web app looks pretty though.
  12. I have many occasions that need to save and edit the Office docs(mainly including Word and Excel), and current workflow for editing office docs is: 1. Save the doc in Evernote to a local file and edit and save it, 2. and then replace the old doc in the Evernote with the local new one. And you know, it's very inconvenient and error-prone. It would be better that the Evernote can support in-place editing of MS Office docs. Thanks!
  13. How do I take a word, excel or powerpoint file (in Mac) and save it to one of my notebooks? When I'm in the notebook I don't see a way to browse files to save to it. Thanks.
  14. This is my second post (please see the following link for my first: respecting the same issue: Bullets and list functionality. Actually, for the sake of accuracy, I should rephrase the previous statement to "sheer lack of functionality of bullets and lists". I was an avid user of Evernote. I absolutely loved it. The syncing feature and ease-of-use are second to none. Sadly, I no longer use Evernote for my daily note-taking due to a single and ongoing systemic flaw in the software: Lists! I must reiterate the absurdity of a software provider, such as Evernote, priding itself on being an unparalleled tool for organization and taking notes, having ZERO functionality in the outlining category. I need not bore any potential readers and forum members with the specifics; they are easily found and discussed ad nauseam on other topics and websites. However, I will quickly summarize the problem: When taking notes on my Macbook Pro using the desktop software (version 5.6 Beta 9), I am utterly disappointed when attempting the expectedly simple function of copying and pasting an outline (whether bulleted and/or numbered) from Evernote into Microsoft Word, and vice versa. I was intending to utilize Evernote as a note taking tool during law school. As a side note to any possible Evernote employees reading this post, I am not the only disappointed student forced to utilize other, and admittedly inferior software, to accomplish a task that your entire business model was built and conceived on. I am asking, once again (I decided to throw in the towel after this post) for the following functionality: The capability of taking notes utilizing your built-in bullet and/or numbering tools in the Evernote desktop software. Then, the capability of copying and pasting these numbered/bulleted lists into Microsoft Word and vice versa, without the formatting being completely and utterly annihilated. Lists lose their tabbed spaces. Bullets seem to disappear at a whim. When importing from Word into Evernote, lists do not reproduce even close to being useful. In short, Evernote is useless to anyone interested in outlining functionality (I ponder the percentage of current customers listing the outlining functionality as one of their favourite motivators for using your product). Finally, this entire mess could be easily and elegantly remedied by adding another extremely important tool: an automatic Table of Contents. I am attempting to copy and paste my Evernote lists into MS Word for the sole purpose of creating an automatically updateable Table of Contents. To wrap things up, please fix and/or add the requested tools for your loyal customers! I beg you! I will pay for the premium version if you accomplish this Herculean task of software engineering! I will send you e-cards publicly thanking you for your achievements akin to man's first step on the moon! Please... Please... Do something about this. It has only been 2.5 years since customers have made you aware of this issue. If I were currently in an MBA program, I would use this very experience to write a comprehensive case study, which would ultimately and convincingly conclude with an analysis about the ignorance of customer desires and the promulgation of the rather hilariously hypothetical new marketing slogan for Evernote: "A note-taking tool without the basic tools for note-taking". (Excuse the lack of enthusiasm in the above paragraphs... You may be able to gauge my frustration from my cynical style of writing. I assure you, I am grinding my f****** teeth).
  15. Display of Word Document in EN Mac 5.5.2 Needs Improvement It is a great feature of EN Mac that it can display MS Office documents inline. This is a very powerful feature, if done properly. Unfortunately, there are at least two major issues with the display: (see screen shots below) 1. Large margins not in the Word or Excel document are added to the display This causes the document to be greatly reduced in size in order to fit the EN Note window.This wastes so much space that it greatly reduces the value of the inline display.2. Table grid lines are not displayed Evernote, please change the inline view to correct these problems. Note that Excel has the same issue.

  16. How do I force Word-Wrapping?

    I notice the displayed text is wrapping at the character level rather than the word. This is annoying, forcing me to enter a 'return' to keep the words intact. How do/can I force the display text to wrap via word vs character?
  17. Hi, i have a basic free evernote account that i use with both windows & MAC. I have a windows laptop at home and use a mac while on the road. Everything works fine with windows but i have a couple of issues when using MAC operating system. 1. If i create a Word or Excel file on MAC, i cannot drag/copy/attach the file to a note in evernote. It wont let me. Any reason why or work arounds? 2. I cannot edit current attachments in evernote while using MAC operating system. All files only open in read only format, meaning i must save them again on my desktop, but as per the first part of my question - i cannot re attach them to the note. As a result i end up creating/editing documents and emailing them to myself before reimporting them from my windows PC. Is this normal or am i missing something?
  18. Feature Request...

    Hi All, I am seeking the feature and I am wondering if someone else would be interested. Usecase: Writing the notes in on installation. (Notes natureally written in Evernote). Once I finish, I want to produce the standardized document and make it available (and keep it editable) for other people, who know nothing avout Evernote. At the moment the only available export are formats are HTML, MHT and ENEX, Which do not really fit. For example DOC/DOCX would be helping here. Anyone else would be interested? thx Lukas
  19. A friend of mine just started to use Evernote on her ipad. She emailed me one of her notes. It came into my email as an attachment that was a Word doc. This is a very happy thing and I want to recreate this strategy, but cannot figure out what her settings are that permit this and what I need to do so that my notes send as Word doc email attachments. I am a premium user. When I email a note, the contents of the note are the body of the email. Thanks.
  20. When I add a Word Document to an Evernote note by dragging it and dropping it onto the Evernote icon, the note simply shows the name of the document and the size, with the option to quick view the document or download it. In the past, my documents have shown the name at the top of the note, then shown the actual document within the note. It is frustrating now to have to click the view button to view the document and am wondering why this is happening now. I cannot find any setting for it in preferences and my best guess is Evernote is trying to save memory space. Has anyone else experienced this or have an explanation/fix for this? Thank you! NOW: BEFORE:
  21. mac Document preview of local files

    Is there a way to have EN showing the preview of a local file (excel, word, pdf, etc.) linked in an EN note via a link similar to file:///Users/<username>/Dropbox/Evernote/excel_file.xlsx (Mac link but for Windows would be similar)? What I'm doing is to keep some shared documents in Dropbox, so I can work collaboratively with other people, and link these in EN ideally having a preview of the document in the note itself. Then, If I need to work on the file, I'll open it on my machine with the editor I prefer. I specifically don't want to copy files in an EN note because at the moment I find it cumbersome for different reasons, although in that case I would have a perfectly working preview of the file. Thanks
  22. I had a client paste screen shots into an email and email them to me. I sent the emails to Evernote for safe keeping. I display the note and see the image. Issue: How do you get them out of Evernote and, say, paste them into Microsoft Word??? If you simply Copy, then Paste, you don't get the image - you get a block that has an image name, date, time. (see attached screen shot.) If you drag and drop, you get nothing. If you save as, you get a cryptic file name that * you * have to add .png to, to get Windows to recognize the image. When you open this, the image quality is not nearly as good as that in Evernote. What is the best / right practice here? Loving Evernote, but, if this feature needs development, this is a stumbling block for sure. Thanks as always in advance for your response.
  23. Greetings, Has anyone found an alternate to Quickoffice for the iPad with regard to editing office documents that are embedded into notes. Previously Quckoffice had a feature to link your EN account into it's cloud services area and then you could browse notebooks and open word documents right from the app. This was nice because there was no "round trip" needed within iOS. When you saved it, the document just saved right into the note. This was perfect for my workflow as I do store a lot of MS Word docs in Evernote notes. Well.. Then Google purchased Quickoffice and mucked everything up. Now the only cloud service that's offered to link is Google Drive. While GDrive is a nice service it doesn't replace EN and I want to keep using my existing workflow. My question to the users here is has anyone found an app that functions similar to the way Quickoffice used to work? Thanks in advance. Tom
  24. Using the OSX Evernote app. When I search for words across all notebooks or notes, the notes are filtered to show the notes that contain the search word. When I open the document I would like searched word to be highlighted. Can this be done? Would be very helpful for large notes, with embedded documents etc. Anyone able to help? Cheers
  25. I share an account with two other users and until recently, have had no issues sending notes with Excel, Word and/or PDF attachments to Evernote. I use the appropriate notebook/tag format in the subject line and have my email set to HTML format. Once I view the notes in Evernote, the attachments won't open or the format is skewed. I've also tried to screenshot images/data, but the Evernote displays these as: [cid: image001.png]. I'm not sure whether this is an issue with the account as the other 2 users have successfully sent notes w/ attachments. Open to any suggestions you may have. Thanks!
