[looking] please tell me if evernote can do all these (as of 2017)

Recommended Posts

please tell me if evernote can do all these, if it can't it's ok, i just need to know

**minimal requirements**

* can make bullet points easy like if you type '* [space]' then it would make a bullet point
* what i type into the software is responsive to the size of the window (going to keep the window/app like a 'sidebar')
* is easy to hide/expand all info under a higher-level bullet point
* can bold like a regular word doc so you can see the bold easily, so no markdown (auto-bold the first line/bullet point is a plus)
* minimal UI (prefer completely clean UI)

site, app, anything, only the above matters, everything else is irrelevant

Which Evernote application are you using? WIndows? Mac? Android? iOS? Web?

Have you actually tried Evernote?

The Windows application does have a bullet point shortcut such as you mention ('* '). No Evernote client that I know of has the ability to collapse/expand bullet points. I don't know what your other points mean.

Best way to test Evernote features on any device is to download the free basic version and try it out...

Yes to points 1, 2, 4. No to point 3. "Minimal" is a matter of opinion, of course. Below is a screenshot showing the window as narrow and minimal as I could get it (by customizing the toolbar and dragging everything off of it that I could). It would probably be best to try it out and see if it works for you.

Another unsatisfying response here I'm afraid..  there are various alternatives to Evernote,  but the 'best' option is something that only you can determine by trial and error.  I doubt there is one application that will meet all your requirements,  but you may be prepared to trade a better bullet editor for the ability to keep the app floating as a sidebar.  Although I've tried several alternatives,  I didn't use them to the extent that I can complete your comparison chart.  Try these links..

Evernote is minimal compared to, say, MS Word, but some people want more, some people need less. The best way to find out is to try it out. Evernote is free and easy to try; only you can determine whether it meets your needs. For formatting text, it should be simple to figure out. For more advanced uses, that's up to you. Try it. If you get stuck, then feel free to come back and ask questions. Otherwise, for us, it's a guessing game trying to figure out what you want. We cannot do this work for you.

you know i really gotta give it up to you guys for taking so much time to write 

1) when it's not needed (besides the answer)

2) and as if ya nothing better to do with your time or life

i gotta respect that, but it also confuses me (this is assuming ya dont work here)

--

since the replies were trying to be helpful

i thought i give you the answer (for your 'extra' knowledge):

there's an entire category call 'outliners'

there's a lot to go through so not sure what's the best at the moment, but quick examples are:

* dynalist
* checkvist

historical examples are workflowry, etc.
