Getting to Know Evernote v8.0

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

Our development team has been working hard to improve the Evernote experience on iOS. Here's a quick overview of some things that have changed and some highly anticipated additions.

 

Home Page Changes:

The home page has been removed. The Evernote application will now open directly in the All Notes view, or in whatever location you were last in. If the application is fully closed (you press twice on the Home button and swipe up on the Evernote app), the app will open in All Notes, not in the location you last accessed. There's also a new location for accessing notes, global search, creating a new note, shortcuts, and your Account Settings.

Where are all my notebooks?

To view your notebook list:

  1. Select the ‘Notes’ tab to bring up your note list
  2. From any note list, tap ‘All Notes’, the notebook name, or the drop down at the top of screen  

 

How do I change the sort order of a note list?

To change the sort order, go to the ‘Note List Options’ screen, and select  ‘date created’ or ‘note title’.

To view the ‘Note List Options’ screen:

  • From the ‘All Notes’ list view: Tap the options button (three dots) to see your note list sorting and viewing options.
  • From the note list view in any opened notebook: Tap the options button (three dots), then select ‘Note List Options’.

Note: To view a list of reminder notes sorted with overdue and upcoming notes first, tap the notebook name, then select ‘Reminders’ from the notebook list.

 

Note Changes:

Note Options (...) has moved and changed a bit:

What happened to presentation mode?

Presentation mode is no longer available in Evernote for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. You can use AirPlay to mirror your screen, or you can use presentation mode in Evernote for Mac or Windows.

 

 

The formatting bar has changed:

And these are all the newly added formatting features (!!!):

Notebook Changes:

Location of Notebook Settings has changed:

Notebook Options (...) menu has changed:

Creating a new notebook is a bit different:

Account Settings:

 Settings is in a new spot, and the options within it have changed:

Quick FAQ:

Where can I find Work Chat?

Work Chat has moved to the account info area. To view and send Work Chats, select the ‘Account’ tab in the tab bar.

 

How do I move notes between notebooks?

To move notes between notebooks, select a note, then tap the name of the current notebook located just above the note title. Select the notebook where you want to move the note to.

 

How do I move personal notes to business notebooks (Evernote Business only)?

To move a personal note to a business notebook:    

  1. Tap the notebook drop down from the top of the screen
  2. Tap ‘Move to another account’
  3. Select the business notebook you’d like to move it to

 

How do I create a notebook stack?

To create a notebook stack, drag one notebook on top of another in your notebook list. Give your stack a name. Add more notebooks by dragging additional notebooks into the stack list.

 

How do I access business notebooks from my company's Evernote account? (Evernote Business only)

To view any business notebooks you have access to, you’ll first need to switch to your company’s Evernote account. To switch to your company account:

  1. Select the ‘Account’ tab
  2. Tap your account name
  3. Select the company account

Overall I love it!

But I found that renaming has not been able in tag management, and feel a bit disappointment that the widget does not have any improvement.

The badge icon on the Evernote app is most likely indicating past due Reminders. Swiping down on the notes list and tapping the Reminders icon (looks like an alarm clock) should allow you to view all scheduled and past due Reminders. Scroll through the list to clear the badge from the Evernote app icon.

If scrolling through the Reminders list doesn't clear the badge, check Work Chat within the Account Settings for any unread messages.

One question. I am using the new version on my iPad, and I also access Evernote on other devices.  Is there a way to force it to sync; i.e. upload my changes?  Often I finish note-taking on my iPad at a meeting, and I want to sync right then.

I tried both and I still have a badge.    I tried restarting both EN and iOS.   I have iOS 10.1.1 / iPhone 6.

Thank you, DTlow! But what I learned here is, the Remider Notes are sorted perfectly by Overdue & Upcoming in All Notes, but if I select a specific notebook, then select the Reminder (clock), and it doesn't come up with the sorting by Overdue & Upcoming for the Reminder Notes in the specific notebook, how come??

Because, IMO, EN missed it in their redesign.  Mystery to me, seems a pretty simple and logical use case that worked in v7.

No, they don't. I have to re-construct and save them in Evernote iOS 8 (do the search and save it with the magnifying glass icon with the plus sign). The problem /bug is: The sync of saved searches actually works only in one direction: from Evernote for iOS to Evernote for Win Web Browser - but not back.

It is a selective bug as my saved searches are fine.  Doesn't make it any less a bug though.

Removing Presentation mode was one a huge mistake! First of all — WHY???
I used this feature very often! While reading an article screen did not switched off, the article has been expended to full screen, also I used it to show up recipes while cooking without turning on the screen every minute.
I'm very disappointed! Without this feature I totally don't care about all the new "great" stuff. Please think twice about turning it back or I will have to think about quiting the subscribtion (I do not want it though). :(

Thanks for a new fresh look. I generally like it, but I have one problem. I use saved searches to see reminders for 1, 2, 3 etc days, up to a week, but can't figure out how to see them sorted in the new version. As other pointed out, the sorting only seems to work when you select Reminders in the Notebook list. The whole point of my saved searches is that I normally don't want to see all my reminders, only those for a particular time span.

Ah, sorry for being unclear. My saved searches are there, no problem. But when I for example use my saved search for seeing reminders for 3 days, I can't find any way to see them sorted. I just see the notes with reminders within a 3 day range in a random list.

Yes, but I don't want to sort in either of those ways. By "random", I guess the notes are sorted by update date, which is of no use, when I want see the notes in the reminder order. This was really easy in previous IOS versions.

Reminder date sequence has been reported in the feedback discussion.  We're waiting to see if the change was intended or gets rectified

For sure, but the point still is you can't sort by reminder date within Notebooks in the new IOS.  PITA if you have reminder searches, like next 7 days for example.

I'm a premium customer mainly for the presentation mode on my iPad.  I use it to teach several times a week and the presentation mode was perfect for that.  I'm probably going to give up my premium account now.  The update took away the option I used most.

The loss of presentation mode is disastrous. I used this frequently. I literally noticed it within minutes of opening Evernote 8. 

The interface looks goofy with a black bar at the left of the screen cutting the carrier name at the top in half. Easy fix, please do it.

Search is utterly broken. I can't select documents that I search for. 

At this point I am actively trying to figure out how to downgrade to 7 and am trying the OneNote import for all of my content from Evernote. My workflow has been severely disrupted.

Hi All,

While I am not experiencing as many issues as most of you here, I am still wondering what happened with "Places" from the old version. It seems it was just removed and I cannot find a single thread on it on the internet. As if nobody was really using it. Am I the only one missing it? (I don't want to use an additional app like IdeaPlaces by the way).

I was wondering about the charge for the Premium Mode feature
Aside from the issue of dopping a paid feature, I'd think we should be entitled to immediately cancel our subscription and get our money back, or at least prorated

I suspect somewhere in the legalese, we agreed that Evernote has the right to remove features

btw   My subscription page still says Presentation is a premium feature.  No mention of a platform restriction

I don't care about Android or Windows so it's a good option for me.

I am astonished Evernote would release something this buggy and incomplete. I need a way to install Evernote 7 and actually get work done ASAP, or I am moving on. This is actively disrupting my job. 

This is shameful.

Can you give more detail as to what snippet "features" you like?

Yes. Summaries of multiple notes ("snippets) (on my iPad mini in landscape mode  I can see about 6-7 of these) in a vertical list down the left side, with the snippet containing the title, the created or updated date (depending on sort order), the first sentence or two of each note, and a tiny thumbnail;  and the "selected" note showing in the entire primary window on the right. Just like snippet mode in the Windows desktop (I don't know about the Mac). So when I'm looking at a note I can still see all the snippets down the left side, and selecting any of them will change the focused note in the right window while not changing the list of snippets. No huge cards taking up too much real estate.

ETA: The "features" I like being :

1) Seeing a list with context info of *as many as possible* of the notes I'm looking at (whether a search or a notebook or all notes or whatever), at the same time as being able to see an entire note from that list

2) Being able to switch the focused note without affecting the list of notes I'm looking at

3) Being able to scroll through the list of notes without changing the focused note

You should put back the Home Screen or at least have the option for you customers to use it. For me the new version without the Home Screen is a disaster. I'm really considering cancelling my account. I had not use as I did before the Evernote App on my smart devices. The MAC App still Ok. I also noticed the Web App also change, the Home Screen is not there anymore.

Hi there, is there a way to update the due date/ time of reminders without going into the reminder?

In the old version I used to use reminders as a to do list, shuffling things around several times a day according to my changing priorities by just swiping left on a reminder from the list view and clicking the calendar icon that appeared. Now when I try that in the new version I don't have the option anymore so have to go into each individual reminder, then click on the alarm clock icon, then select change date etc. Much more time consuming...

I think you're referring to the manual adjustment of note order on the Reminder Page
This was available in previous IOS versions, but was dropped in v8.0

We were told there's future enhancements for Reminders

We can still do this in the Shortcut Page

My solution is to switch to Title sequence and adding a prefix to the note title

Because it's uh....better! Because it is version 8, or something.

Radical redesign!

Features? Who needs 'em!

Testing? We don't need no stinking testing! 8 is great! Er, 8.0.1 is great! I meant 8.0.2 is great! Um, sorry, got s bit confused, 8.0.3 is great! Uh, yeah, so what I meant was 8.0.4 is great!

Of course the real problem is that once they are done using their entire user base as alpha testers, the features we actually relied on are still gone.

When I take notes from an ipad, this type of font appears. I set my standard font settings on Windows Evernote as a Segoe UI. When I enter the Web Evernote, it looks like this when there is no problem with Windows Evernote.

Your web browser may have settings to require a different font.  I'd assume that Evernote Web's CSS specifies the same font as for desktop,  but I don't know whether that can take precedence over any other settings in your browser.  I'd suggest referring this to Support - https://www.evernote.com/SupportLogin.action if you're a subscriber,  Twitter - https://twitter.com/evernotehelps if not.  They may be able to suggest a work-around or at least refer this back to a developer and possibly fix it in future.

In Windows Evernote, the "Segoe UI" font is set to a standard size of 12 fonts. I got a new note from the ipad for trial purposes. And look in Windows, almost every line has a different font and size. I didn't make any adjustments to the note I received on the ipad.How many times i wrote them, all platforms (twitter, email, website..). Every time same answers. But for some reason, nobody's still offering a solution.

The DTP point is defined as 172 of an international inch (about 0.353 mm) and, as with earlier American point sizes, is considered to be 112 of a pica. / / In 1996, it was adopted by W3C for Cascading Stylesheets (CSS) where it was later related at a fixed 4:3 ratio to the pixel due to a general (but wrong) assumption of 96 px/in screens. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point_(typography)

A 'pixel' on an iPad is smaller than a pixel on a 1080 screen,  and there probably are a lot more of them...  between devices I don't know how software engineers rationalise how a 12pt font should look on a mobile screen vs HD and 4G screens,  but to see the same layout on all of them,  the physical sizes of words logically have to be different.

That obviously should not mean different random font styles or sizes in the same note on the same device.  Where the content is used in or by other applications on that same device,  I'd imagine that there could - reasonably easily - be differences in display or print routines that could cause similar effects.  As long as the note is tidy and comprehensible I'm generally happy. 

Evernote is not a web page or print / presentation designer - it's editor is basic enough to cope with quick notes. 

If you need some additional level of style or consistency,  then try a word processor or output a document to PDF where you have finer control over the eventual format.

Same issue, I've noticed font changes betwixt IOS and PC.   I created a test note on my iPad.  It's obvious that the number list created on the iPad is interpreted as a different font on the PC.    It shouldn't ougta be this way.  :(  Standard font on A should be represented as standard font on B, my opinion anyway.

So, test two, create a note on the iPad, V1, duplicate it on the PC and modify the font on the bullets to default.  The font size on the iPad is changed.  Don't think that should happen either, default font to default font.  Thank you to spellcheckers for bulleted to billeted.  :blush:

I got a new note from the ipad for trial purposes. And look in Windows, almost every line has a different font and size

In a recent discussion, I found out the default Evernote/IOS font is San Fransisco; this is not adjustable
I had an idea of adusting the default font on my Evernote/Mac so that there's no difference when switching devices

Based upon what I'm seeing, I doubt it would make a difference.  In the bulleted list example there is a specific font size added in IOS (visible in the ENEX when exported on the PC).  Adding bullets on the PC does not change the font size.  Also it would appear the default font on my iDevices is Helvetica Neue.  A font I don't have on my PC, though EN will display it should a note be imported with that font. 

End of it all, I guess my expectation is that whatever the default fonts on the platforms, the note should be all default on the platform unless I make a format change.  You can't see the aforementioned font size change on the iDevice, so why?

In split screen mode, when I open another app and then come back to the split screen, Evernote fails to remember where I was in a note (on the right side of the screen). It’s just blank, with only the navigation showing. I have to navigate to somewhere (anywhere) before that data suddenly appears.

I really like the new interface. I only have two suggestions:

  1. To migrate PenUltimate functionality into Evernote. Evernote is the only notes application that I must switch to a seperate application to handwrite notes (Bear, Neebo, OneNote, even the built-in iOS Notes app supports this). It is so close with the ability to enter in sketches, but it is still not conducive to handwriting.
  2. Reminders for individual Tasks. I know I can set a reminder on a note, but not for the tasks in that note. I think this is particularly useful when using some of the project templates posted on your site. Being able to set Tasks with individual reminders means I can have one list for a project, with multiple Tasks, each with different dates. Having an “All Tasks” view would be the icing on the cake, giving me visibility into every task I have across all of my notebooks. I often forget what note has a particular task item, especially if I didn’t set a reminder. 

I love using Evernote, but these two issues (the first one in particular) has kept me from fully committing to the Evernote system. Other than those two, however, I do love Evernote!!

 

P.S. One hidden gem you all have on iOS is the integration with Workflow... what a great set of automated tasks!

I might not have understood your item 1 correctly, but as far as I can see, you can make sketches in the IOS app using the pen icon in the bottom of a note.

You are right, I can, but I can’t create full handwritten notes in the Sketches panel. Because it is designed for drawing, it actually attempts to correct some lines and messes up handwriting. 

Really, what I’m looking for is functionality similar to Notes in iOS, but I think Evernote can do even better by implementing PenUltimate’s functionality (handwriting, templates, etc.) directly into Evernote.

I absolutely agree with you that present functionality for sketching isn't enough for creating handwritten notes. I would also like to see improvements on this.

Anyone notice EN is faster to close a note when backgrounded in this release?

Seems like when I have it open then swipe to another app then back to Evernote, the note I was working on is often closed. I’m talking only minutes here and notes didn’t close that fast before.
