Idea

I've already read the multitude of posts on this topic. I've been an Evernote user since the beginning and I've always thought it was a great product. As soon as I thought of a feature, the Evernote folks have already been cooking it up. Recently I ran up against the notebook limit, I contacted customer support and they gave my the "you should use tags instead" line. I am a Developer myself, and while I do not purport to know how Evernote is built or the whoas of maintaining a system with so many users, I can't imagine any reason why arbitrarily setting a limit of 250 notebooks, improves system performance or usability. It seems that a decision was made that people should use tags rather than notebooks without any regard for how current users prefer to work. In particular, the fact that I choose to be a premium user and and still limited to 250 notebooks seems absurd. At least choose a number that very few people would run up against like 1000, or make the free limit 100 and the premium limit 1000, that way if the limit really bothers someone it will incentivize them to pay for your service.

I'm guessing that you're using a notebook per client and don't feel certain about how that might work with tags

Still guessing; for an Evernote solution possibly archive non-active clients.  
Either an archive account, or tag with the client and move to an archive notebook.

If you were to describe your stack/notebook system, someone might be able to help you to reorganize, presumably to some system using tags. But if you're unwilling to try that (I'm guessing that you're using a notebook per client and don't feel certain about how that might work with tags), there are many other products. You mentioned OneNote, and that might suit your needs -- it didn't work for me, and the OneNote import from Evernote was a horrible disaster, so be a little cautious there. Good luck.

Guys thanks for your suggestions.  I use one notebook per client but if a client has multiple matters, I identify the client by stack and then the individual matters by notebook and then use notes such as: Players/People in the File; Status Report; Timesheets, etc.   and this has been a great fix for me till I got the dreaded "approaching 250 limit."  My toes curl at the 250 limit as a paid subscriber. People can make any excuse they want for the company but this is a fix-request for the last several years that hasn't been fixed even though the premium pricing has gone up.    Who knows?  Maybe I'll be back if OneNote doesn't do the trick either. ..

Hi Michaelzapun, I am sorry to hear of this issue frustrating you. 3 years ago it frustrated me and there were similar responses to me on how to change my entire system to work around this Evernote limitation. So I sympathize with your situation.

As I see this conversation continuing to this day, and although some folks may believe they are being helpful by suggesting you redo years of work and change your method of organization - I feel they are not understanding that each person's situation is different and the complexity of converting to the tag system is not always preferred or optimal. Bottom line is that this is not going to be fixed in your lifetime and there is little support within the Evernote cheerleading team to extend the notebook quantity.

Luckily, there is a method (a free importer) to import Evernote into Onenote and it is offered on the Onenote website. My unsolicited advice is to not waste your time here being resisted, but to invest your time into the transfer.

I too would like to call for more notebooks. The limit is baffling from both a technical and a usability point of view.

Voting buttons for this request are at the top left corner of the discussion.

Not clear about the "baffling"
imho  There is no technical reason for the limit - it's an artficially set number.
Useability is an issue because Evernote originally didn't intend tnotebooks to be the primary organization method
They did not include any hierarchy; the tag feature has an unlimited hierarchy.  These are technical issues.
An attempt was made to enhance usability by adding Stacks, but it only provides a single level.

OneNote was a full on cluster the last time I took a peek, from data loading to organizing to my workflows.  Who knows, maybe I have tailored my workflow around the idiosyncrasies of EN  or EN functionality matches my needs.  IAC EN works very well for me.  I hope OneNote works well for you.

Evernote knows that OneNote is out there as an alternative, and some tolerance for discussing it is obviously allowed, but in the past they've frowned on more full discussions on why an Evernote user might want to switch to a competitor. That policy may have changed, but it does feel a little bit impolite to me.

Sure.  In Evernote, when you create notes in a notebook, you are forced to use the order assigned by Evernote.  Or you can sort according to Evernote's parameters.  But in my practice, I needed to have notes in a different order.  Example, I always like to have my first note in in notebook (client matter) be "Status Report" and 2nd note be "People in this File" (etc.).  There was no easy way to do it.  In OneNote, you just drag and drop to any order you want. In OneNote you have notebooks, sections (tabs) and pages all of which you can put in whatever order you like.

I tried OneNote over a year ago and didn't like it as much. I hope that Evernote increases the notebook limit and doesn't institute new price hikes so I don't have to explore OneNote or other apps again. But I will if necessary.

I look forward to your review.

Sure, everyone who mentions tags understands the request for notebooks. However, most of them are not Evernote employees, and cannot therefore change the Evernote service or applications. Indeed, some of them may have also requested it themselves, or at least voted for it. But more to your point, not all users understand that tags could be used as a workaround in case Evernote doesn't change this; in other words, it's informational, and not at all antagonistic to the idea that the some other users want the notebook limit increased,

As you know, the tag hierarchy is ONLY a hierarchy of the tags themselves, and has no impact on notes and notebooks (except in EN Win).

While we have been forced to use tags where many of us would have preferred to use Notebooks, I believe that the basic notions of Notebooks (aka folders) and Tags are quite different.  In the macOS itself, I make very good use of both folders and macOS Finder Tags.  They are complementary with little overlap.  But then that is my design (of folder structure and tag structure). 

But please, let's not get into the eternal debate of tags vs notebooks here.  If anyone chooses to use tags rather than Notebooks, then fine.  But some of us recognize the value of hierarchical notebooks, while other don't (or choose not to).  If anyone wants to discuss tags vs notebooks, please provide a link to one of the many existing discussions of this debate, so everyone can discuss it there.

For me tags means organization, Notebooks means visual separation, for a number of purposes quite distinct from tagging. 

Same difference?  Maybe, but in Windows at least, the imaginary difference feels quite real, hence the need for nested notebooks to go along with the increase.  If that made any sense.

Currently I am using Notebook name tagging to create visual separation by sorting, which works sort of ok for now, while waiting for nesting.

Support told you that, correctly, because that was the limit at the time. Now it's 1,000, so it's currently impossible -to have more that that.

The "technical reason" was because that's the arbitrary limit they set at the time.

Encrypted notes could happen, sure, but at a guess it'll a little harder to implement than raising the notebook limit to a different arbitrary number; depends on where the notebook limit is kept/checked in the service. Still wouldn't want to deal with that many notebooks regularly in what is essentially a flat list -- even 100 would be more than I'd want -- but hopefully this will help out the folks who wanted more.

Well, I use the parent idea only with tags, currently my naming is mostly designed to push notebooks up or down the list, an asterisk* in front of the name to push notebooks up plus bold and maybe red for emphasis, a japanese dash character 一 to push notebooks I don't want to see down to the end, a couple of stacks for neatness and to hide things as needed, and a few free standing notebooks above that I currently need.  Just trying different ways to see only what I want to see each day without complication.

With tags, I try to devise ways to quickly find what I am looking for (I borrowed some ideas from your post about prefixes for What, Who, Where, When), so that if I type ?, all my Who tags come up, etc.

'What' is the hardest and the most numerous, for that I have devises a number of my own categories that work for me.

 

With notebooks my aim is not so much to find, but to hide notebooks, to push out of the way that which I do not need at the moment.  I have some notebooks called Old and similar names.  How I name them I explained some in the previous comment, very simple at the moment. 

For certain cases, I have a separate free account for notebooks I really don't want to see unless I have to (job training mostly), but that is not the best option from day to day.

I believe your approach is a lot more involved, but I have only seen bits and pieces that you have shared.

That was my only organization concept, building hierarchies instead of completely separate entries.  A hierarchy even if it's only prefix naming.  Relational is better.

A concern with Notebooks the one-notebook-per-note.  I need a good reason to isolate a note in a notebook.

Not quite sure what one notebook per note means, unless you mean one notebook per project, I have seen that debate.

For me notebooks are a way of not leaving things in my Inbox, which creates  psychological dissonance.  They also  help remind me I may need to still tag, rename, create note links, table of contents, etc. 

They also allow me to corral my tendency to "procrastinate" (the actual name of one of my two stacks).  My "Main" stack is for notebooks that have been mostly processed and organized, or at least prioritized.

 

But the idea of exporting things easily is another motivator, based on my experience trying to move everything into Evernote from my previous systems.  A need for large categories of things to deal with in an export/import scenario was very evident to me at the time, particularly with keeping track of whether I am losing notes.

 

Your naming system based on dates caught my attention, but I don't fully grasp enough of it to borrow the idea.

You can certainly navigate your notes using the tag  tree in the desktop applications, if that's what you mean by "physical file separation". If you only use one tag per note (a policy you'd need to enforce on yourself), that's pretty much equivalent to navigating the notebook tree.

It's not stored as an actual entity; just a comment on the notebook record.
There might be a problem in the UI display if you create too many.  You could test this out and report back.  I'd take on the challenge but I only have 8 notebooks to work with

Currently (based on the Evernote SDK), a stack only exists as a field in a notebook; that is, every Evernote notebook has a stack name field, which may be empty. There is no separate list of stacks. When it comes time to display your notebook collection, all notes that have the same stack name are grouped together under that stack name, and those that have an empty stack name are listed separately. So to answer the question -- so long as the SDK reflects the actual underlying reality -- then the max number of stacks is the same as the max number of notebooks, or 1000 currently, since each stack can contain a minimum of 1 notebook (and you'd never do this).

You have my sympathy. I'm glad that Evernote increased the number before I invested that kind of time into moving to another app. I think there is a limit to the number of stacks, but  can't tell you with certainty.

I don't see anyone arguing that that Evernote isn't usable with the 250 notebook limit. I do see people requesting that Evernote's usability be enhanced by increasing the notebook limit.

I for one never argued that Evernote wasn't usable after having reached my 250 notebook limit, only that it was much, much easier, efficient, and more natural for me to use notebooks instead of tags. Time permitting, I use both a notebook and tags. But if I'm rushed it's easier simply to assign the note to a notebook. And there are many occasions when it was not possible to add tags because of the form of web clipper I was using.

I've moaned about the 250 limit on notebooks on this thread before, so very excited to hear about increase to 1000.  So took the dangerous step of updating Evernote for my Premium account on my Windows 10 PC, but, after installing,  it just told me that i can not have 250 notes.  :-( What gives?

I recommend you contact support on this at https://www.evernote.com/SupportLogin.action

I'm sure it's something simple.  We were told the limit is increased for paid accounts.

I hope you get the problem fixed soon.

How did it tell you?  Were you at 250 notebooks and then tried to create another?  Were you actually prohibited from creating 251?  Just wondering if you are seeing an old and now inaccurate error message.

I didn't upgrade, I already had Premium, but in the past when I tried to create a 251st notebook I would receive an error message. After the announcement, I selected the new notebook choice and Evernote created a notebook. That was all there was to it.

I was at 249.  After I updated, I right clicked a Stack, and "Create Notebook in ...".   The Message I get is "You cannot create more than 250 synchronized notebooks.  Please delete some of the existing synchronized notebooks and try again."   

It occurred to me that EverNote might have be trying to save me from myself.  I have another machine with an older (so still 250 limit) version of Evernote connected to the same account.  I update that one just noew  to 6.16.1.7953 (307953) Prerelease (CE Build ce-53.4.6770) -- its on Windows 8.1,  But trying to add a Notebook to the same stack as before creates the same message as above. 

The version of EN on my Windows 10 machine is 6.15.4.7934 (307934) Public (CE Build ce-53.4.6700) and clicking Help\Check for Updates on that machine assures me I have the latest update.    I'll try again in a few days.

You show up here as a premium member so I would think this should be working now for you.  Time to contact support.  One last thought, if you haven't recently, log out of your account and then back in to see if that resets you correctly.

Did you try to just create a notebook, not in a stack?
