Recent Notes list in sidebar

Idea

I want to remove the Recent Notes list from my sidebar. I like to keep things very minimal and this is clutter to me. Is it possible to add an option to have it not show up?

The only option is to disable the shortcut list in the sidebar and only display when required
I also like a minimal clutter free sidebar; here's a screenshot of my setting5a947e6c44b7c_ScreenShot2018-02-26at13_37_37.png.1c404ae010f3cc0b63f60e10c5a9ac9f.png

Well, that's too minimal :) 

I really like being able to see my shortcuts. So I hope Evernote will consider removing them from the Shortcuts section.

I'm with you, ClaudiaV.

This update is driving me crazy. I have my shortcuts set up exactly as I want them; the addition of the 'recent notes' keep pushing access to my notebooks and tags off the bottom of my view.

Exactly! And I would like to choose whether or not to see recent notes. I think Recent Notes should be in the regular list section, with an option to hide them.

Yes, I agree. 

I know this interface change seems like a small detail, but the reason it's troubling is because it forces a change in my workflow without the ability to remove it.

It's my shortcut bar… It wouldn't add any interface complexity to give me the ability to configure which options are on or off.
I hope this isn't indicative of random and unmodifiable interface changes to come...

I would love to have some insight into why this change was made. I assume the Evernote team was solving for some other problem and my preferred workspace was just collateral damage.

I agree as well.

I was previously able to hide the recent notes while showing the shortcuts that I had specifically set. I would like to see the previous behavior return.

Hi,

Recent notes is now part of the shortcuts module in the sidebar. I'm passing along this feedback to product. Thanks for all your comments!

Hi nicolml, Thanks for passing along the feedback. I would be eternally grateful for a preference setting to turn off recent notes.

A lot of us want to. Please add your vote for the reversal of this "innovation" here:

I love Evernote and use it/train it robustly across all of my teams.  I loved ability to have a few select shortcuts.  I never use recents due to privacy issues, etc.  Unfortunately, relegated to removing entire feature from sidebar. 

Please restore ability to chose using/not using recents. 

Thank you!

This was a serious enough issue for me to downgrade to the previous version of Evernote. I'll stay with that version until this gets resolved.

I've been a premium member since 2010. This is the first time I've had a problem with an Evernote update.

I agree with everyone else.  Please allow us to remove recent. It isn't as helpful as the developers apparently think it is.  Don't do what other software companies do, and refuse to listen to the people that pay the bills.  When that happens, we move to other products.

I have been asking for the ability to remove the recent notes from the sidebar for a while now.  EVERNOTE, please listen and allow the users to manage their workflow as they see fit.  We are paying too much to be saddled with this inefficiency.

You're late posting on this issue; it's been resolved with the latest release
