What's New

Version 7.5.2

* Are blank notes getting you down? Say hello to templates. Now, when you create a note, you can format it with one of 30+ templates. Stay tuned for more.

* We’ve cleaned up the More Options menu (“…”) so it’s easier to find the actions you use most.
* To make upgrading effortless, we added a button to the toolbar. We promise it won’t bite, but don’t worry, you can always remove it if you’d prefer.
* Since we recently changed our appearance (does this color make our sidebar look big?), we tweaked our background colors to match.

* We fixed a problem where you wouldn’t see a note snippet if the note hadn’t synced properly.
* If you had more than one line of text highlighted when you tried to remove a link, all the links in the note would disappear. We’ll admit, that was taking things too far.
* Now and then, loading web views would cause a crash, but we fixed that.
* Sometimes, annotating a PDF would cause a crash, which was a big fail.
* The app would sometimes crash when checking for updates. Since updates are healthy, we put a stop to that.
* Pasting into a numbered or bulleted list would remove the list text between any images. This was less than ideal, but on the bright side, we fixed it.
* The app was forgetting your Shared with Me column widths after you closed it, which is probably not what you expected.
* Shared notebooks weren’t showing up in your Shared with Me list. And notebooks deserve love too.
* Triple-clicking one line of copy pasted in front of text on another line would break the list. But that’s a thing of the past.
* If you added Japanese characters to a bulleted list, the formatting would look weird, which was unfortunate.
* If you had 2-byte characters in a table (for example, Chinese or Japanese characters), adding a bullet point would break the table. And only WWE wrestlers should be allowed to break tables.
* Underlining couldn’t be removed from text in a table, which wasn’t helpful.
* Turning bold text off then pasting something into a list would turn bold back on. We really like bold, but that’s taking things too far.
* If you pasted bulleted lists separated by paragraphs from Word into Evernote, the gaps would disappear. You could say it was a big mess.
* Pasting data from Excel into Evernote needed a table upgrade, but there was no way for you to do it. That was an embarrassing oversight on our part.
* Pasting text into Evernote from a coding text editor messed up the formatting, but it should be smooth sailing now.
* Occasionally, changes you made to a note, including moving it to a different notebook, wouldn’t sync. Things should be back to normal now though.
* Occasionally, dragging a note from a space to the trash folder would cause the app to crash, but that’s no more.

I used to be a loyal customer.. but am ditching this for OneNote

Ex-Evernote user

I’ve been using Evernote for the last 5 years for taking notes throughout pharmacy and medical school; initially it was a great tool that I loved using, but all the dev team has done is make it more and more unusable to the point where I’m going to stop paying for my upgraded account and move to OneNote. Why? For one, the devs do ridiculous things and don’t listen to customer feedback. For example, they changed the Notebook layout page from easy to navigate tiles with which I could see and access every single one of my 25 or so notebooks with a single click. Now they’ve changed it to a scrolling system which is so much less accessible. I’ve seen hundreds of angry posts on this one topic, and have they done anything about it? No. Did anyone ask for that change? I don’t think so. At least make it optional without forcing users to go along with an unpopular change.

Another thing is the terrible search function.. I have hundreds of notes by now, and I can search the literal titles of my notes and they don’t always show up in the search options. What the heck? I have to memorize which notebooks I’ve put a lot of my notes. I decided a year ago to pay 5$ a month for this, just so I could use it on all 4 of my devices, but I’m no longer willing to pay for a suboptimal experience. Evernote, get your s**t together or you’re going to continue to lose customers. A lot of my classmates feel the same and more are moving over to OneNote. I’m sorry to be leaving, and having to transfer all of my notes over to another service. but you leave me no choice.

It’s great, but the current version is crashing.


Evernote is the Gold-Standard when it comes to notetaking. The functionality of the app is great.

I paid good money for the full Premium Subscription, as the PDF annotator is excellent and great for taking class notes. However, Evernote frequently crashes while in PDF annotation mode. When it crashes, I lose all unsaved annotations, which can be devastating when I am in the middle of taking notes in class.

I sincerely hope they can fix this bug soon. The feature is too expensive to be so insecure.
I am running Mac OS Sierra on a 2014 Macbook.
