Can't create table of contents

Recommended Posts

I have a two part problem.

1.  How can I select ALL notes in a notebook in order to create a Table of Contents? Right now it seems I must command click each note (and I have over 200 so that is annoying - I'd like to drag/select or select all).

2.  When I do select some notes, the Create a Table of Contents option isn't showing up.  It only gives me the option to "Copy Note Links to Clipboard".  See screenshot.

I am using the evernote app, have a basic account (free) , on a Mac,  Safari 11.1  I've also tried on Chrome.  

I've made a TOC before so I know it's possible. Or at least it used to be.

Thanks,

Barb

Use the notebook dropdown to select the notebook396158625_ScreenShot2018-06-08at12_19_15.png.788b44034efd5dcce4cf0b11cec04c8a.png

Use Edit > Select all to select all the notes in the notebook

Alternative: Click the first note.  Shift-Click the last note

What version of Evernote are you using?

You can still create a new note and paste the links from the clipboard.

The app on my computer is 7.1.1.  I don't seem to have a menu with edit on mine.

Update:  OK I was playing around with the app on my laptop and I changed the view to CARD VIEW instead of Expanded Card view (which I normally have). and suddenly I'm able to select all AND the option to create a table of contents.

That needs to written into the online instructions.

Step One - make sure you're in CARD VIEW

 

Thanks for your help.  By getting me to search for the edit button, I inadvertently solved the problem. :)

Mystery solved.  I'm using list view, and wasn't aware there would be a connection.

Hmm, I seem to be able to use select all (via cmd+A) in all views. Perhaps there's another condition necessary to make it break?

Yes, just to clarify, I was using the web version when I was having trouble with select all.  I can do it with the app.  Thanks!
