Retiring the classic note editor

As of March 2022, we have begun to retire the classic note editor on Evernote Web. We are fully transitioning to our new note editor, and you will no longer be able to switch back to the classic editor. Customers who currently use a version of Evernote on Mac or Windows that uses the classic editor can continue to do so, but it will no longer be maintained, updated, or supported.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the note editor?

The note editor in Evernote is the area of the app where you add text, attachments, and other content to your note—in other words, the area where you create and edit a note. Learn more >>

Why is Evernote transitioning to a new editor?

Our new editor was redesigned to offer a more refined, streamlined, and modern appearance, and to create a foundation to build modern editor features in the future. It also helps us manage inconsistencies and bugs across platforms.

What will happen if I switch?

When switching to the new editor, you may notice that certain content shifts around slightly. In particular:

  • HTML content like web clips or pasted HTML may get simplified in different ways.
  • Attachments (files and images) in the middle of paragraphs and lists will be separated into new paragraphs.

Is my note content safe when using the new editor?

All of your note content is safe, but you may notice that it looks a little different. You may also notice that some features are not fully implemented just yet, such as previews for certain file types.

Which features will be retired along with the classic editor?

The following features will no longer be available in Evernote when we retire the classic editor:

  • Context
  • Presentation mode
