Idea

Hi there, 

I am using Evernote on the web through Chrome. I cannot merge any of my notes for whatever reason with the Ctrl+click technique...  I used that technique a lot (I know how to do it), but it for whatever reason stopped working for me. When I hold Ctrl, it does not even register and instead just changes between my notes as I click on them. My Chrome browser is up to date which was the most troubleshooting I came up with for a feature that always used to work for me up until recently. . 

Is there a function on my keyboard aside from Ctrl that should also be used? A setting in Evernote that may have gotten changed? I use Windows 8. I have also tried with Firefox.

 

Thanks for any help

Nobody knows why things aren't on the new version. Not knowing is an intrinsic part of the Evernote experience.

The default mode for this forum is:  

Detect a problem/lack  ------> comment on it -------> live in permanent hope.  

We users live in a state of chronic ignorance. We are like cave dwellers searching the skies for the arrival of a comet.

Please consider adding merging capability to the web version. In general, a feature complete web client is essential, especially in light of the lack of Linux version.

Same problem -- thanks for the suggestion!

By the way, if anyone from Evernote is reading --  please don't take the multi-select and merge function away - it's invaluable to me!!! Not sure why it's not in the new version of Evernote web but I can't live without it.

I am new to Evernote, and have wasted about 4 hours looking for how to merge notes (and other things)... then find that you can't in the web version... PLEASE add a feature to MERGE and to clip from web repeatedly to the same note.  Think of a 'note' as an email;... I cutnpaste to the single email and paste pics in it too.  Then I find I can't do it in Evernote.... Please help.

I know, it is not as practical as the integrated function but you can merge documents and much more with Kami on the Chrome Store applictions

I too am having the same problem in the "new" EN Web version, which I've started using just recently. Outside of EN, when I am pressing either Ctrl+click and Shift+click, I am able to select multiple items, regardless of whether the items are in a range or not.

As a test, I reverted to the older version and I was able to merge notes without a problem. However, I'd like to use the new EN Web version.

Should I submit a support ticket? Or this a known issue with a quick fix?

Thanks in advance for any and all replies.

Chrome Version 52.0.2743.116 m

When you go to Evernote's help, it does not tell you that you cannot merge in the web version.   How many hours did I spend tonight trying to figure out why I cannot merge notes?  How many times did I control-click?   I think an explanation to web users  is due on Evernote's online "help".  Of course, there is no easy way to comment to Evernote itself so I will post here.  Frustrating.  It is one thing if they don't want to offer the feature on the web version; it is another to not make that clear to users.

Not sure what documentation you’re looking at.  I see https://blog.evernote.com/blog/2015/01/30/merge-notes-together-evernote/ and it only describes merging on the Mac and Windows platforms

Step back to the old version (via settings) and you can merge if you wish...

Is it still possible to switch back to the old version?

Cannot find the parameter in the settings...

Hi Everyone,

Has anybody found ANY solution yet to merge notes on Windows desktop?

the CTRL-Click is obviously NOT working and there's NO way to select the notes.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you

Using the current web client,  no.  As discussed above,  if you can,  revert to the 'old' web version,  or use the installed desktop app,  you can merge notes.
