Native Markdown Support

Idea

Recommended Posts

  • 0

I have tried to abandon evernote in favor of Quiver, just because it has markdown. I've transitioned just about all of my professional work over to it in fact, but the lack of mobile / windows syncing is the major factor preventing me from switching entirely.

 

Anyone know _why_ Evernote is dragging their feet so much on markdown? It's not a super complicated spec. Hell, even a kludge like the Markdown Here plugin that does a quick processing step on your notes and renders your Markdown to evernote compatible html would be an advantage over what we currently have.

I'm just assuming its a question of priorities.
You can add your support using the voting buttons in the upper left corner of the discussion

fwiw  There are many requests for new features, some of them also indicating how easy it would be to implement

At a guess, full Markdown support would be a pain: round-tripping between Markdown and HTML (more or less Evernote's internal format) is not well-defined. Providing a way to input via Markdown is probably helpful, but rendering a page that comes from an arbitrary web clipping into would probably not be a great user experience (I've seen this in action in the Atlassian Wiki product; drove me absolutely crazy).

Note that Evernote have never said anything about its feasibility, or even whether they'll ever provide it. They rarely do. If it's critical for your use case, then it's pretty much a no-go; always choose the tools that exist, not the ones that you want to exist.

Markdown input is absolutely necessary for notetaking! They usage of hierarchical headings is very convenient in markdown. I can't understand why Evernote still not even provides paragraph/heading styles.

Absolutely need it.

Have a look at Marxico - everything I need is there. Tables, Latex, Flow diagrams..

But that would be still easier and nicer than how ti is right now, wouldn't it?

There are ways to make it painless. Check out Marxico or Bear Notes.

Marxico

As far as I can tell, Marxico doesn't really support round-tripping MarkDown <--> Evernote. Once it's in Evernote, and you make changes there, then getting Markdown back can be problematic, since Evernote can use pretty full HTML. If it works for you, then that's great (or or if I'm not understanding their web site then please correct me), but let's be careful about turning this into something that it's not.

Round trip is supported. The catch is, however, that one can not edit Marxico notes in Evernote. They are read only. But they are marked as Marxico, and you can open them up and edit in either web based marxico or in the standalone app.

Check yourself - trial is 10 days. Love it - Flowcharts, Seq diagrams LaTeX - the whole nine yards of goodies.

This puzzles me. Round-tripping to me means that I can start a note in Marxico, edit in Evernote, and be able to continue in Marxico again and be able to pick up in Evernote, all without losing content. According to the Marxico site:

Quote

Quick Editing

Note saved by Marxico in Evernote would have a red ribbon button on the top-right corner. Click it and it would bring you back to Marxico to edit the note.

Note: Currently Marxico is unable to detect and merge any modifications in Evernote by user. Please go back to Marxico to edit.

If this is true, then round-tripping is not supported by Marxico. Once you add content to Evernote using Marxico, you need to always then use Marxico to edit that content. Which is swell, except that I edit notes on my mobile devices as well.

Evernote's editor definitely has a limited featureset

If you need more extensive features, I'd also recommend using a different editor, but within Evernote.  Any document file can be attached to a note

Indeed.

Evernote should buy out Marxico and make it Advanced Mode editor.

That will not only smash the competition (BearNotes, etc), but would also make a viable case for "Evernote as the Wiki". I would definitely consider switching my team to Evernote Wiki (with markdown) full on.

Actually yes. I believe modern Markdown editors do support syntax highlighting in form of 

```xml
<hello>world</hello>
```

It is ironic that Evernote _FORUM_ does support syntax highlighting and advanced editing features such as code blocks, but the product that pays for the forum - does not.

This is exactly it. Most of the time when I type anywhere else I have access to these features, but with Evernote there is none of that. They just don't seem to be interested in improving the editor. Marxico is fine, but it's not well integrated and it's an additional cost for something that should have been included a long time ago. I honestly can't remember the last useful feature added to Evernote.

I really can't believe how many years have passed without supporting Markdown.

For what it is worth, I am now using Atom.io with the Ever Notedown package. Although it is a little wonky at times, it is the best I have seen so far.

Using Marxico still. Searching for Evernote replacement. As soon as I find one - I am off (well, unless Evernote comes around with Markdown and LaTeX support).

 

P.S. Checked out Laverna App - great promise! If they pull it off, that would be a killing app for Enterprise use.

Would love to see this. I used to use Marxico, but I don't really want to pay for it as well (tight wallet). I'm a massive fan of markdown, and would love to see this.

I actually use Drafts 4 to create notes on my iPad, and it has options to export the markdown render to EN. It's great, and I love it. Bullet points come out right, todos come out right, it just works.

However, EN for Windows becomes a problem. Whilst my iPad is my daily workhorse, I find that I use EN for Windows quite a bit still. Markdown is a must have.

This feature is crucial. I almost quit Evernote before my renewal yesterday, but decided to stick around for one more year to see if native Markdown support comes to fruition.

Marxico and other workaround tools are pretty incredible, but there's something about native integration that makes for a better workflow.

Thanks!

Good day, everyone.

In the last few month this issue has been taken to be one of the top three.

I perfectly realise that given the history there is little hope that Evernote will listen or act.

Nevertheless I would like to try. Do you think you could help out by spreading the word? I would like to see this feature request to be the top one for the next stage and I think it is possible. We got it from just 36 votes (that's when I joined in) to 114 today - it should be possible to get half of that amount if we all try to get someone else to vote.

Then there will be the next action - but I will come back on that one.

I doubt an increase in the vote count will have any impact on Evernote's priorities.

This request is on EN's radar and it's up to them if they implement it.

My suggestion is to use a workaround until we see this implemented in the EN editor

As a long-time Evernote user - this is the missing feature that is most important to me. I love the other features of Evernote, but I'm finding myself taking fewer notes in this app over time due to this missing capability.  Apps like Quiver are what I'm looking for - full Markdown support with preview.  I should also be able to export these notes as Markdown files or Docx files with the proper formatting; no divs!

Please make this happen...

If Evernote borrowed some of the UX of Quip for introducing Markdown. It would be game over, I would stop search for and testing other apps because then, Evernote would have  taken that crown.

I think it's pretty clear now that either management don't see any need for Markdown support, that the underlying (legacy) code is resistant to it being added, or the developers don't have the necessary skills to add it (or a combination of the above). I remember reading that Markdown was in the process of being added, but that was years ago and must have been abandoned. I'm afraid it looks like it's just a matter of waiting for something better to come along. I have pushed all my long-form notes to Gitbook and really just use Evernote for small fragments. I would suggest anyone that hasn't looked at Gitbook to give it a go. It is solid and (unlike Evernote) is constantly being improved.

Markdown is a great way of formatting text as it was intended to be convertable into HTML and yet be easy to read. It makes note taking a lot more fluid as you don't have to move a mouse to format.

Evernote already has the "---" markdown for horizontal rules. So I don't think it would be too hard to implement "*" for italics and "_" for bold. Also, "-" for bullet lists should be easy to do as well since there is the option to use "*" for bullet lists. However this clash would mean that it would have to be specified whether or not markdown is to be used when making the note.

I would use Evernote a lot more if there was support for markdown as it would mean note-taking on my mobile would be a whole lot easier.

I feel on the biggest missing features is native support for Markdown. Please add native Markdown to Evernote.

For me, Evernote is a perfect daily companion except for the fact that I can't do LaTeX.

Right now, I am planning to rely on Dropbox Paper Web version for my math notes. But, I am not satisfied with it either as it is not a replacement or intended for creating notes to store like Evernote.

Even if they can't support all kind of markdown, at least I wish for LaTeX editing like on Dropbox Paper on the web. The main feature of LaTeX Evernote should support is ability to go back and edit the LaTeX instead of deleting the whole math image and rewriting the code block again, in a convenient way.

I believe a lot of Evernote users dealing with math daily in their life would appreciate it very much! I am hoping for the integration in the near future soon.

I do code in my free time too. So, integration of code editing as an edit and read only special file note like how PDF editing works would be a big plus.

The lack of markdown has made me leave Evernote a few times the past years. But I always came back. And every time after a few months I see a different tool that does support MD and then I leave again...

So +1 for me!

Still no Markdown support?

giphy-downsized.gif

I am waiting for this feature for years right now and today I looked again when this feature will be there but still no sign. It has the most votes, please make it finally happen soon. At the moment there is no real competitor that has this feature but when there is a lot of people will move I think. I don't want to move because I like Evernote but it's hard and I thought about moving multiple times. Make Evernote super duper awesome with Markdown

I would switch to paid Bear if they had their own server for syncing things, I don't like the fact that my notes could be using space in my iCloud account. 

Do you know another app that would do markdown and have also this idea from Evernote that you can upload things using an monthly quota?

There is also Dropbox Paper.. but there is no native app yet and their development efforts are a bit slow.

I guess it comes down to personal preferences and wants/needs. I personally have no issue with them using my iCloud account and have always found the idea of a monthly quota "odd". If I am paying for a service, I would expect to be able to use it as much or as little as I like.

Wasn't there another app that worked over the top of Evernote to provide markdown support? Could that be an option?

The monthly quota is a great idea because you can upload any file you want an the next month you get your quota reset. You don't have to complicate over time deleting stuff for keeping your plan cheap.

 

There's an app that supports sort of markdown on top of Evernote: "Alternote" but its paid and they haven't updated it in a while.

Zapier has a "Formatter" that will take an evernote and format the markdown. I have it set up so a new note in a notebook is formatted by zappier from markdown to HTML and then added as a new post on my wordpress blog.  Works awesome. Will not solve everyones markdown problems, but it's one solution.

Evernote's feature request is like the end of Raiders Of The Lost Ark. Your request ends up in a huge Wearhouse with all the other feature requests, gathering dust.

I don't think they've added a single feature that I would consider useful for literally years.

Markdown support would be superb. The possibility of toggling it on/off as an advanced note editor would simplify the life of every working researcher in the natural sciences. I positively love Evernote and honestly believe that its multitude of features makes it an amazing service with no equal. There is also talk of Bear notes as an alternative solution, but it only has iOS functionality. And that is another great thing about Evernote: it works across OSs!

I guess it may well be the case that markdown functionality may somehow be interfering with legacy code from the note editor. Who knows, really. All I can attest to is that I have switched over to Evernote to keep track of research papers, clip articles of new discoveries and take pictures of my hand-written calculations. Why not take that one step further and introduce LaTeX and mathmode functionality?

Pleeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaase 

We would be sooo happy! :wub:

This is indeed very true. Even my nerdy friends(computer science majors) have no clue what is a markdown. 

But I got this theory that many digital markers and nerds like myself promoting Evernote rely on markdown to write their blog posts (just a theory, no evidence) and to store their coding notes since there's a high chance they are the ones teaching their family, friends, colleges how to use Evernote + introducing Evernote to the non-nerds, it makes sense to make these group of people happy first because they bring in new customers and their job rely on certain features? 

Just a thought though, maybe the truth is far from that.

PS: i'm the one making everyone around to start using evernote and ignore stuff like onenote and apple note.

For me, Markdown is a metaphor for a robust editor that serves a wide range of users (uses), which is sort of how I view Evernote as a product. As for what most users know about markdown (or any existing aspect of Evernote), any product that doesn’t offer users an expanding set of tools to help them expand the value they can create likely has a limited shelf life.

No I don’t.  Markdown being both actual and metaphor for aspects that could be added that would move EVERNOTE toward having a robust editor.  Presumably the purpose for current improvements to Tables.  In my view, what can be accomplished within a note is becoming the primary factor in my choice of a Note application.

It's very annoying that Evernote doesn't support Markdown. Since I discovered and learned how to use Markdown I couldn't wait for Evernote to implement it. Still no luck. It's my most wanted feature for the Evernote.

If Bear Notes had Windows version I would have moved to the app in an instant. Really confused why it's such a big deal to implement Markdown in Evernote.

I really think that it would be wise to quickly make markdown available before products like Bear take away those of us programmers forever, you know it is quite troublesome (the mere thought of doing that is a burden) to migrate to another platform once you already accumulated a pile of programming notes and snippets. We REALLY need the markdown and code highlighting.   :(:(

We are a minority. But we are a minority with very strong influence. 

Ignore what the minority advanced/nerd users say and it is just a question of time until the rest of the following crowd (incl. the media) will start promoting very solid alternatives and by then those alternatives become the norm. 

 

It is the law of diffusion of innovation. Actually, former Evernote CEO used to talk about this few years ago. Life is full of ironies and that is why he also left. 
 

The metrics/numbers might be looking good or "stable" at the moment. But if there something that history tells about Product Management and Growth is that you should never ignore earlier symptoms from unexpected or unworthy sources.

Not relevant? only for inside job fanboys who refuse to admit and get into this denial propaganda. 

 

Feel like whoever is monitoring this community feedback is basically issuing a certification of idiocy to all these "dumb users who in their crazy minds think that Markdown or heading or nested tags are important".

I'm not into the      Boohoo, Evernote's so bad     posts
I'm more interested in how to make this product work for me
If I needed to use markdown; I would select the editor that supports it

? of course, you are. ;) 

 

So much that you spend all your life here (9000 posts...). I wonder how much of that interest on "the How" has worked for you so far.

 

Wait...I know you will tell amazing things next or maybe use a slight critique of Evernote to make yourself look humble and really convince people here that you are not a biased inside job with such profound and insightful (helpless regardless) replies to whoever makes any undercutting critique of the situation we are living for years regarding the lack of implementation of obvious features in favor of no so desired ones.

Its working quite well.  I do spend time honing my Evernote skills and setup.  
And as I said, select the editors that match the features you need

There is no "inside" conspiracy going on.  
Many of my posts are volunteering help to new users.

Don't worry about that ;) 

No inside conspiracy. Just pure inside job. 

 

So far your posts in this thread are not meant to help "new" users but instead blunt attempts to defer the "unwanted/unpleasant" feedback provided by advanced users regarding unhappiness or disappointment for lack of (obvious) feature implementation.

For example, Headings or nested tags shouldn't be even considered as a feature. They are pretty much essential part any editor and Markdown is pretty evident is widely used by journalists, developers, researchers, bloggers, writers, authors etc.

Most definetly a feature of word-processing editors; perhaps not so much a factor for Notes

>>So far your posts in this thread are not meant to help "new" users

In this thread, I've been trying to help users to use Markdown, since it's not offered by the Evernote editor

So you implying that users who come to this thread asking for Markdown... don't know how to use Markdown or where to find it elsewhere? haha are we dumb?

 

Isn't obvious THAT we know where to "get Markdown" because obviously in Evernote we can't... but WE WANT?

 

Feels like your "contribution" int this thread is a bit our relevance and pointless. 

 

Admit it you are here just to talk down users asking for this feature because you are A-Fanboy or B-Inside_job or C-Inside_Conspiracy. ?

I intended no such implication

Many users are unaware of the power of attachment featuren that they don’t have to be locked in to the limitations of the Evernote editor.

Any file can be attached to a note.  Evernote works well with images, pdfs and office/iwork documents

It is not up to you to decide if users should or should not be locked.

 

The purpose of this thread is very very, very clear. I shall emphasise VERY. 

 

We users/customers, posting on this thread, are voicing to implement Markdown feature. NOT to be made our needs as a "redundant thing" to be addressed or to be given the advice of look for other options when SOME of us DON'T want others options "elsewhere". 

I am fine with moving some of most important stuff to Bear and work from there. 

However, I find your contribution to this thread highly disrespectful/dismissal of the concerns we all in this thread are defending/asking for.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

When one cannot win an argument and therefore need to switch to patronising tone.  ?

 

EDIT:

I am going to do you a favor, so that you can keep feeling good with yourself while gaining more momentum --> I am unsubscribing to this thread (or any) because it is pretty obvious this community medium is pointless and full of "guru" fanboys with patronising "advice" to give to all these dumb user requests.

The trouble with this so-called user forum is that requests for improvements are quite regularly commented by some Gurus in a way that feels kind of insulting. 

Nobody, repeat nobody, should be told to use another editor because Evernote is missing functionality. Requests for improvements, advanced features are not directed at Gurus or other users but at Evernote.

Developers, regardless of software or hardware field,  are normally quite keen to know what their customers would like to see in their product(s). It is in their own interest to evaluate and respond to requests. 

What strikes me is how often real help calls with individual problems calls are quickly referred to Evernote officials.

Sadly or oddly, though Evernote is supposedly used in excess of 200 millions all over the globe, there is not much available in the way of useful publication. Made me think that no one wants to lose money or just waste time over a software which seems to be a puzzle to its own company.

This particular forum has been set up by Evernote for users to post feature requests.  
It's called "Evernote Feature Requests"

In addition to posting requests and votes, users also discuss the issue and explore work arounds
I've learned a lot from the discussions and appreciate the users posting their solutions (member, noteworthy and guru).  I don't feel insulted

>>Nobody, repeat nobody, should be told to use another editor because Evernote is missing functionality.

I recommend using alternate editors.  
I'll add my vote to the request, however I'm not going to be restricted by the limitations in the Evernote editor.  It's ok for basic notes but I often need the features in dedicated apps

I am also think that markdown (even basically implemented) can be a huge asset for Evernote. 

The main problem I have in my notes is to read them because the formatting is messy. 

Indeed when I take notes I don’t have time to increase or decrease the font. So the only formatting I use is bold and underline. 

For example, it would be great if when I tap « # My title », the text would be automatically formatted as a level 1 title.

That’s a feature I experienced in Bear or IAWriter. It would be awesome in Evernote because as a note taking app most important features are to be able to enter text quickly and to read them later. (Also to search for your notes but on that point Evernote makes a great job).

I feel that i am paying a yearly subscription because i expect improvements to be made over the years and since i am paying money for improvements and support, i have the right to make noise and express my frustrations in the feature request thread of user forum as much as i want when the feature i want is not implemented over 5+ years.

Also, i don't want to be told to use another alternative if the feature i expect from a product is not there.

I pay the subscription fee for the continued processing of my data.  I need the enhanced featureset and limits

>> I have the right to make noise and express my frustrations

If you say so.  

I use the voting buttons to indicate my support for a request; I’m not into the dramatics

>>Also, i don't want to be told to use another alternative if the feature i expect from a product is not there.

If you’re not interested in the work-arounds, don’t use them.

For  me, I’m not willing to give up on the features I need
