Previous release notes for Evernote for Windows

This article contains a log of release notes for publicly-released versions of Evernote beginning with version 10.0. To view current version release notes, visit Evernote release notes.

  • August 25, 2021 - Version 10.20.4

    New

    • New widget alert! Make your Home dashboard even more useful by adding the new Filtered Notes widget. See the content you really need, such as all notes with a task, all notes with a specific tag, and much more. All in one place. (Available with Evernote Personal, Professional and Teams plans.)

    Fixed

    • We tweaked some things under the hood so new note windows will now open even faster. Because nothing should stand between you and a great idea.
    • If you saved a copy of a note to Evernote, it sometimes took a while for any tasks in that note to appear as well. But you should be off to the races now.
  • August 16, 2021 - Version 10.19.2

    New

    • After you duplicate a note, the app will now focus on the new note instead of the original.
    • Duplicate notes now have "copy" at the end of the title, so sorting or deleting them is a snap.

    Fixed

    • We tweaked some things under the hood to make Tasks even more useful for you.
  • July 27, 2021 - Version 10.18.3

    New

    • Tasks you create using the global create button (the green circle with the +) will now be added to the note you currently have open instead of the default task note. All the better to help you stay on top of things.

    Fixed

    • Now you can see a count of how many tasks you've completed out of the total number of tasks in a note. Because we can all use a little encouragement.
    • The app was sometimes a little too eager to export clipped notes as PDFs, leaving images behind. Now it'll wait patiently until everything has finished downloading.
    • If you hovered over an item in a scrollable menu, the list would suddenly (and annoyingly) jump back to the top. Now things will stay put.
    • Occasionally, a task would mysteriously disappear from inside a note. That didn't mean it was complete, though, which was a bit misleading. But you should see them all now.
  • July 22, 2021 - Version 10.17.8

    In case you missed it, check out our newest subscription plans:

    Evernote Personal—Keep home and family on track.

    • Sync your notes to unlimited devices and work offline.
    • See all your tasks in a summarized view and set due dates and reminders.
    • Connect calendars from your primary Google Calendar account.
    • Add the new Tasks widget to Home and personalize your layout.

    Evernote Professional—Boost workplace productivity.

    • Everything in Evernote Personal, plus:
    • Assign tasks to other people.
    • Connect calendars from multiple Google Calendar accounts.
    • Customize Home with multiple pinned notes and scratch pads.
    • Search using Boolean operators and geo location.

    You can now Connect Evernote and Google Calendar to get more done—available with our Personal, Professional, and Teams plans:

    • Create notes for calendar events and access them quickly later—all from the calendar widget in Home.
    • Prep for meetings easily, ahead of time or on the spot. One click sets up a logically structured note for you, complete with event details—like date and attendees—which you can search for later.

    Please note: Tasks is no longer in Early Access and is now officially released. This means that more advanced aspects of the feature are now limited to specific Evernote plans. For more plan details, visit evernote.com/compare-plans.

  • July 7, 2021 - Version 10.17.6

    New

    • Stability and performance improvements.

    Fixed

    • Occasionally, notes would appear to be blank and the only solution was to restart the app. But it should be smooth sailing now.
    • If you disabled spell check, it would sometimes keep offering you suggestions. Very frustrating, but thankfully now a thing of the past.
    • We fixed an issue where the timestamp on a note wouldn't update automatically.
    • Miscellaneous bug fixes.
  • June 3, 2021 - Version 10.15.6

    Tasks in Evernote

    Early access to Tasks has started rolling out and will be available to you over the coming weeks.

    Tasks in Evernote help you stay on top of it all by making your notes more actionable and giving your to-dos the context you need.

    Notes and tasks make each other more useful:

    • Add tasks directly to your notes to keep the things you need to do with the information you need to get them done.
    • Streamline your workflow—when notes and tasks live together, there’s no need to keep switching between your notes and a dedicated task manager.
    • Avoid information overload by capturing the details, actions, and decisions you need in one convenient place.

    Take control of your day:

    • See the right task, at the right time. Unlike standard checklists, you can set due dates and reminders on each of your tasks.
    • Get alerts for tasks even when you’re not in Evernote, so important action items never fall through the cracks.
    • Quickly focus on what matters most by flagging important tasks.

    Master your priorities:

    • Get a summarized view of everything you need to do, or immerse yourself in the context of what you need to do now.
    • Work your way—sort tasks by note, due date, or flagged status and use filters to focus on what you need in the moment.
    • Changes to your tasks update instantly across every view and on all your devices.

    Get early access to Tasks and start each day confident that you have a clear path to tackling everything on your plate.

    New

    • If the Collapse Sidebar toggle was getting in your way, good news! Now it'll be much less intrusive.

    Fixed

    • The app would occasionally prevent you from editing a shared note, even though no one else was editing it. But now you can edit to your heart’s content.
    • If you opened a note that was already open in another window, you’d expect the app to bring that window to the front. And now it will.
  • May 26, 2021 - Version 10.14.7

    New

    • We added a new keyboard shortcut! Quickly search or switch to a note, notebook, or tag by pressing Ctrl + Q on your keyboard.

    Fixed

    • If you selected multiple notes but the first one was blank, the app would sometimes forget your selection. A very specific wrong that has now been righted.
    • The app would sometimes have trouble importing a lot of .enex files at once (and we mean A LOT!), but it should be smooth sailing now.
    • When the Evernote app is minimized, the keyboard shortcut for new note windows now only opens a note window instead of the whole app.

    • You can now right-click on section headers in the sidebar (like notes, notebooks, and tags) to get quick access to more options.
    • You no longer need perfect punctuation to get the search results you want. For example, searching for "checkin" will show you results for "check-in", "check.in", "check_in" and "check'in".
    • Evernote Business customers can now search inside shared notes.
    • Stability and performance improvements.

    Fixed

    • We're working on an issue where notes would sometimes appear to be blank, and you would have to restart the app to see them again. The issue isn't completely fixed, but you should be seeing it much less frequently now. And we're still working on it.
    • Miscellaneous bug fixes.

    • To tidy up the sidebar, we moved the link for sharing feedback... but we still want to hear from you! It’s now in the Help menu at the top of the screen. You’ll find the link to file a support ticket there as well.

    Fixed

    • If you saved your view options for a notebook or stack then tried to switch views using a keyboard shortcut, nothing would happen. A very specific wrong that has since been righted.
