Idea

Hi everyone!

Firstly, evernote Rocks! Thank you for this amazing app :-)

I find myself switching between notes very frequently, some notes are quite long, thus scrolling becomes very time consuming. The workaround is to keep the notes i access most, opened on a separate window - Clutter's my mac's workspace, but at least keeps my notes open on the last accessed position

Would be nice as default function, else a selectable setting under preference.

Please work your magic and keep evernote rocking :-)

Hi.  Best practice for standard usage is to avoid long notes where you can.  You may find that if you paste an image into one of your notes,  the pic will paste where you put it,  but the selection point will jump to the start of the note.  Not an issue - if your note is only one screen long.  You found the work-around already.  Good suggestion though...

I have some very long notes, and i move between different notes.

Whenever i come back to a note, i need to scroll all the way down to add text, or find the position i was at.

desired behavior:

If possible, allow us to choose if upon opening a note, the cursor moves:

1. to the beginning of the note

2. to the end

3. to the same position i was at when I last visited the note. 

Allow us to override it for specific notes or notebooks.

 

Evernote is great - let's make it even better.

 

Thanks.

When my notes get too long I split them up into several notes. Then I create a special note with links to all of these notes in a table of content. This can be done in an easy way by selecting the notes for the TOC. Each note gets a link back to the table of content at the top. In this way I can easily maneuver through these notes all belonging to a single topic. Sometimes I even use this in a more complex, nested way. The top TOC note links to Sub-TOC notes etc.

When I go back into a note at any time (even after logging out!) please can Evernote remember where my cursor was - and position me at that place automatically, rather than at the beginning? Amongst other things I use Evernote for a work diary and scrolling down to the last entry every time seems like a good task for the computer, rather than for me!

I second this request, which has been made many times before on this forum. It would definitely enhance the usefulness of Evernote for organizing lots of information, and would make me more likely to continue using and recommending the software. Please implement this (seemingly) simple feature as a preference option for Basic users. Thanks!

Ctrl-End is the workaround this until/if EN implements the function.  Some folks do their journals in inverse order.

I'd recommend separate notes for each day

You might research end of note shortcuts.  Which platform?

Theres the standard of /EOD at the end of documents.  Easy to search for

Hi Evernote,

Context: I mostly use Evernote on the mac app. I keep a journal note each week and section of the note per day. Along with other project and meeting-minute notes.

Constraint: I don't like to clutter my desktop with the most frequently used notes. Instead, I rely on the 'Shortcuts' and 'Recent Notes' sections from the left toolbar. Although this works great, I find myself scrolling through long notes to my last know page position when switching between notes. I find myself doing a lot of scrolling...

Feature Request: Either as a default or optional setting, it would be great if Evernote could remember the last known page/note position. Especially for 'Recent Notes' 

Thanks for an amazing app ;-)

I'd like to second this feature request.

It seems that this was in fact a feature of a previous Evernote version:

The disappearance of the feature was recognized as a bug and was attempted to be solved multiple times, to no avail.

Not all notes are conducive to being split. Very few of my notes can fit an arbitrary resolution of the screen I am looking at.

Splitting my numerous longer notes into multiple components would be an Utter. Madness.

Once this feature is implemented (i.e. bug resolved), it would be trivial to have the user define their preferred behavior.

This a recurrent request:

Having this bug fixed would be really nice; it's been over 3 years since Evernote displayed the "remember my place" behavior--which it used to do. If Evernote wants to call it a "feature request," fine, but I'd like to have my notes go back to behaving correctly, as they used to do. Scrolling to get back to where I had been before switching between apps or having my screen go to sleep is a waste of time.

Concur with request. Splitting up notes (at least for me) into multiple files is not an option. Would be great if the note didnt reset to the top every time I get up to get some coffee and have to unlock my ipad.

 

On ipad OS 13 btw. Crashing (on Public beta 1) on public beta 2 seems to have resolved in most circumstances. Not perfect but definitely usable
