Thanks for the notification! I see that this applies to the Windows program. Do you know whether it's working in Android yet?

@LL2525 Hi.  I don't have any special powers around here,  but you could post a request for extra RTL buttons in the Feedback forums,  or via https://www.evernote.com/SupportLogin.action if you're a subscriber,  Twitter - https://twitter.com/evernotehelps if not.   I do use 6.11 and I'm sorry that using your listing above I can't produce RTL text.  Maybe there's a setting I'm missing... :(

Am I dreaming...??? :o:o:o After all these years has Evernote finally added RTL support (Right-to-Left direction) for their "Evernote for Windows" ?

For the first time, :D:D:D I've just succeeded creating a RTL Hebrew note without the need to use any workarounds.

For RTL note (Hebrew for example):
(make sure your EN/HE keyboard is on HE)

- New Note (or ctrl-N) to create a new note
- Enter the title
- Press the RIGHT cltrl-shift of the keyboard
- Start typing.

I haven't yet fully tested it but it seems to work well.
No issues with punctuation marks, numbers and adding English text.

My Evernote version is now 6.10 . Can someone with 6.11 please confirm that 6.11 also supports RTL (because there's no mention of it  in the changelog) ?

And Finally, if the functionality is really OK, can someone (@gazumped maybe ?) please ask the Evernote developers to add 2 direction buttons (RTL & LTR) to the Customize Toolbar window.

Win 7 x64
Evernote 6.10.3.6921 (306921) Public (CE Build ce-1.39.4387)

Hello

I just installed the latest version on windows 10 laptop, and am happy to say that using the above method, I can type in RTL. 

thanks

@Dave-in-Decatur Hi, I run the same Evernote Android app v. 7.17.1 on Samsung Galaxy s5. Still No RTL support for me either. :(

Until RTL support is added to the mobile app I'll keep using my workaround : I keep an "almost empty" RTL note template and whenever I need to create a new RTL note, I just tap the "duplicate" (from the 3 dots menu) , rename the title and start typing in RTL.

Now that Evernote for Windows started to support RTL it is obviously easier to create the template (create it in Evernote for Windows and it will be synced to the mobile app).

I just updated to 6.11. from 6.10. The right-ctrl-shift still works :). These are my "note" settings (I don't think I changed many of the defaults). If you want you can try testing again with them.

@LL2525 Thanks for the assist,  but your settings look the same as mine:  don't know what I'm doing wrong,  but as long as this works for users that need it I'm happy!  :)

this is a real disadvantage of evernote,  is this going to be solved in future versions?

it is also not possible to write Hebrew & English together in the same sentence .

an example:

רשימת משימות:
1.ללכת לסופר 
2. לקנות 5 עגבניות
3.להתקשר ל david cohen 
4. לקרוא את הספר החדש של jhon grisham

Shalom!
I have downloaded your application and enjoy using it.
If I may ask, there is a feature that can be very helpful: a correct right to left languages text representing.
When I write in Hebrew, for example, the text alignment is left, and the cursor stays anyway on the right side of the row.
When I read a ready note in Hebrew, the text alignment is also left.
This problem makes writing/reading in right to left languages really difficult.
It will be great if you could work up this function. It could enable much more people enjoying your app.
Thank you for developing this comfortable application! It is really helpful.

4 Years and no real BIDI to your product. This actually not acceptable. No road map, total ignore from LTR users

I use EverNote for journals on my Social Media Audiences. Hindi is important for part of this. I type Hindi in EverNote...use Engish or other European Languages or Sino-Nipon-Korean group languages to milestone items paragraphs etc and, because EverNote does note accept Hindi Titles, the same languages for titles.

Maybe India is in a comfortable position to make an adequate bursary to EverNote Development to put Hindi on the EverNote Map.

Paper DropBox accepts Devanagari but minus the power of EverNote Categories and other choice goodies.

 

Let's see.

I second it's very disappointing, and as a result, I'm considering a purchase for me and my team other solutions out there that support it.

I request to hear a valid reasoning why Evernote is refusing to add Arabic as a language despite the amount of users between Arabs and the ranking of the Arab language as a language used by millions around the world . It is been years .. your forum is full of requests and people supporting them. Is there a hint of arrogance in your attitude not to even respond to their requests ?

I just gave up and sent them a goodbye tweet: 

"@evernote I’ve eventually decided to stop using Evernote & cancel my subscription. Evernote developers seem determined to ignore users’ demand to support Right-to-Left languages -for YEARS- I’ve been an optimist and loyal user for a long time. It’s time to go."

2018 and the problem is still there in Arabic and Hebrew!!!

This is something that has been figured out maybe 15 years ago, and they still can't fix it!

This is ridiculous

Evernote has turned into a joke.

Join the line.

I sent a request few years ago for RTL support. I got very supportive message but that about all.

Its not like Hebrew is the only freak language with Right to Left direction, what about Arabic? 

In the meantime I am making Lemonade by forcing myself to write in English. I sure need a practice.

This is part of the reason I stopped being a paying user. There are other more Hebrew friendly apps.

Hello. 

Imagin you want to write a note and suddenly, the text is acting weird all of the sudden: A word ends up at the end of the sentence, the rest of the sentence after that word. After a couple of that incident, your input is rendered unreadable. 

So. This is how the middle eastern, are experiencing @EverNote right now. Being one of those middle eastern, I find it unbearable to use Evernote. There already have been topics on this matter, and they have been ignored. 

I would love it if Evernote team reconsiders this important and vital feature. 

Thank you.

It's an extremely vital feature for RTL languages, many people are asking for it and still nothing. pleas reprioritize it!! 

It so annoying!!! every time I need to write in google docs and then copy past it back to Evernote hoping it's still fine!

I'm writing in Hebrew and Evernote doesn't support it' making it really inconvenient and not enjoyable to make notes, making me use it in much less opportunities that I would/could otherwise... Please give us that option...

I believe there are several RTL languages.  Evernote hasn't yet commented on whether or when it might be able to deal with any of them - in fact it almost never comments on its future plans or upcoming releases.

This is why I will continue using Google Keep!
This isn't any feature, this is essential for some languages including mine (Arabic).
Evernote not supporting this after all of the requests for a long time, and after they have already supported Arabic as an Interface language (which -by the way- have a very bad font) shows that they don't care much about their users. As a programmer, I know how easy it's to just add a simple text direction button in the text editor.

Same, I am finding another alternative if Evernote didn't add support to the Arabic language soon. There are very awesome alternatives to Evernote if not better. 😃

how the heck is it possible that such a crucial request of the users hasn't been answered yet (since 2012 at least)?!

it's a natural and basic need of a great amount of users and Evernote is literally shitting on it. it's unbearable how inconvenient is the use of the software for those who use mostly RTL languages.

many softwares have already adapted themselves to this need, why is Evernote lagging?

I understand the frustration but Evernote has thousands of user feature requests for many different aspects of its operation - including the ones that still don't work properly.  They're presumably working through them as quickly as possible,  but they'll prioritise bug-fixing and the features in highest demand first.  Maybe RTL hasn't got to the top of the list yet.

Usual advice probably already in this thread:  if you can't live without a feature - find an app the delivers and stick with that.  If you can live with work-arounds,  then stick around for a while and see what happens.  Users' choice.

In my computer if you press CTRL + Shift (the shift on the right), it will change to RTL writing. And if you press CTRL + Shift (the shift on the left), it will return to LTR writing. But I don't know what to do with the version for android.

Thank you for your answer. 

 there is a simple way to overcome this problem in Android and web

Open a blank office word note on your computer and write a letter in RTL language. Then align that text right. Select all and copy the letter

Next, open a new note in Evernote and past.

I use this note as a template and I have added it to my shortcuts. every time I need to have new note, I just duplicate this note and start to write from right to left.

This feature is really necessary in 2019. Should be available in basic version as well.

An Evernote employee commented recently in another thread that they're working on a new editor,  which is both good and bad news.  Good,  because it might allow an RTL style when it is available,  but bad that Evernote is unlikely to spend time and effort on the existing setup until the new module is ready - and no one has said when that might be.  When any changes are made,  I'm sure they will be available to all account types - subscribers get the same features with higher limits,  email access and helplines.

I will try to say this politely.

This is insane! Evernote. A feature that is standard in other platforms/apps, and it has been in demand (+silent customers) since 2012. Yet, it has not been added. 

Any good reason for your loyal customers!!!!

Hi.  Whilst it's been in demand for several years,  this feature has (currently) 51 votes as against 400+ for other features that are also outstanding. 

My post above yours mentions that Evernote are again(?) rewriting their text editor,  which may then include RTL features.  Some browsers already include the option - I'm currently using the Chrome-clone browser Brave,  which seem to work on Evernote Web too (although notes return to LTR if viewed in the Evernote apps...)

Evernote has provided an editor along with it's filing service.
I use it for basic notes, however it's missing many features I need.
I use those "other platforms/apps" when I need extended features, for example MS Word for word processing
Files of any format can be stored in Evernote as note attachments.

Why do I have to vote?!

I have been a  customer of evernote since 2011 and never voted although i was in need of this since day one. 

Why haven't i voted? Simple. First, I didn't know. Second, they can figure out exactly how many is in need of this feature: add arabic, hebrew, Persian users and Vola.. !! No brainer.

 

Sorry. Stop giving excuses to EN. It makes things worse!

One of the factors is the user interest in specific features, as indicated in the user votes

The web beta version of the long-awaited Evernote is not promising when it comes to this feature.

RTL option is not available in their new editor! Total disappointment. Seriously thinking of switching to an alternative service.
