Set default from "All Notes" to one notebook

Recommended Posts

Whenever I open Evernote on my iPad, it shows "all notes." I don't like that. I want it to only show notes from my main notebook. I can change the view setting, of course, but Evernote changes it back to "all notes." Is there default view setting that I can adjust to fix this problem?

Hi.  Not sure whether it applies in iOS,  but Android users have a widget that can be set up to show notes from a variety of sources - recently changed,  a specific notebook etc etc.  Can I ask why you prefer a one notebook view?  Is it for efficiency,  security or quickly finding recent notes? (See previous sentence!)  I ask because when you create a new note it should be possible to assign it to a specific notebook...

Efficiency. Most of the time I want to look up notes that are in my main/default notebook. The view shows the most recently changed notes on top (which are from my default notebook, which is good). However, sometimes I want to look at or add something to a not-updated-as-often note that’s in my default notebook. That means switching from all notes to my default, which is annoying.

Predictability. I’m used to seeing the notes in my default notebook as the default! I don't remember having to fiddle with view settings before, so I’m thinking this all notes view is a new thing. A new annoying thing.

As for creating a new note, yes, I can assign it to a notebook or let it save to the default. That isn’t a problem for me. (The way new notes get titled, well, that’s another annoying thing!) It’s the default view of all notes that I really dislike.

We're you able to find the settings for doing this? I also have a default notebook where all my current tasks are in. I'd love for it to be the default view when opening the app.
