Seriously: Font, Text Sizes & Colors. We've waited years.

Agreed! This is something that has actually become a pretty big issue for me as there are shared notes that I need the ability to format in all the ways as the Desktop version. I guess this is something I will have to give up until it becomes an issue to someone AT Evernote!

I totally agree with you Raindog. With Evernote is has been a few steps forward and a few steps back with every update. I remember an iOS version where it was possible to at least choose a few different sizes for headers. Not perfect, but that's not even possible right now.

I do believe change is coming soon though, reading blog posts like this. https://blog.evernote.com/blog/2015/09/22/the-future-of-writing-in-evernote. Let's hope we don't get more half-baked new features, but get more focus on that what's already in there. To do what we use it for in a more perfect way.

Yea, I came here exactly to "complain" about inconsistencies between the web-version and the app.
Because even though I've used Evernote for some loose personal use for about a year or so, I just started applying to projects between me and other people.
For example; I would have a notebook with notes shared with another person, or multiple people, and I was figuring how to keep track of who typed what.
Well, I thought the solution would be to change the font-color. And it is, until you want to use the app, which doesn't have that feature.

This baffled me, because how simple of a thing is that to do, really? Unless the whole coding or nature of the app is so different, what's the problem?...
Maybe the developers of the web-version and the app-version should use Evernote to communicate their plans and changes better.
Who wants to bet they don't even use it... Because such an inconsistency would be obvious.
I mean, really, you can change the font itself, what's keeping them from implementing that you can change the color?... It's just weird.

The same for some other features, by the way. Such as audio-files. You can insert/attach audio-files with the web and desktop versions, but with the app it's recordings with the microphone only.
I happen to be an audio/music-producer, and to be able to share samples and such right there in the notes is great. But in case I'm mobile and need to include an audio-file, it just doesn't seem to be possible and I have to wait until I can get to a PC.

So I just wish they would unify their different versions, before differences become huge and it becomes a real mess.

Hi.  Not sure about your problems with sound files but I can happily record MP3's on a Samsung Note4 and attach them to my notes..  And I have collaborated on a document that three or more people were involved with - we used MS Word's document versioning systems on an attached file in a shared note.  Evernote has converged a lot in recent years,  though there's still a ways to go - OS developers keep on moving the goalposts with new versions of their own...

This is a joke! How can there not be different text sizes on iPhone and iPad?

Stella is support was emailing with me about this and told me to note here to "up vote" this issue, so here goes. 

It's really critical for users to be able to use the fonts we'd like on our iPhones -- I've been a Premium customer since 2010 and this is getting so frustrating that I'm thinking of switching to something else (maybe even... One Note as much as I'm not a fan of Microsoft). Evernote Dev folks, please help with our ability to choose fonts. Thank you :)

On my computer (still),  clicking the 'vote up' button doesn't increase the vote count.  Interestingly,  clicking the down button does...

@Ellen G Unless I’m missing something this request is not fully addressed in 8.0.  Yes, it does allow for changing font size and color, but not the font itself.  Ironically, even this comment area allows for changing the font, and the Windows desktop version allows for every font installed not the computer.  But you can’t even provide a few font options on IOS?  Font is a critical element to UI, especially in a note taking app so the absence of this basic feature is disappointing.

Hi.  Different software,  different developers, definitely not ironic.  Evernote are aware that we users like to have this sort of feature,  and have made some progress towards it.  I'm pretty sure they didn't just get so far and stop.  More options should be available in future updates.

There were people in 2012 pointing out that this feature was lacking and here we are in 2015 and we still don't have it.

 

This is a pretty core need and it really surprises me that EN does not support it, given that it is supported on web and desktop.

Six years later, EN is going out of business.  This issue is irrelevant now as the focus is on migrating info out of EN.

<Sigh> Wishful thinking?  They're not.  If that were true every competitor would be fighting for a share of the 225M existing user-base,  and Steve Dotto would be suggesting we all run for the hills... https://youtu.be/XySApcmGZ8E
