Turn a list into a checklist in Evernote for Mac
In Evernote for Mac, you can turn a new or existing list into a checklist by simply highlighting the list, then selecting checkbox mode.
As you can see, you can create checkboxes from any version of Evernote, but on your Mac, iPhone, and Android device, you can now create checkboxes faster than ever. When you’ve selected the checkbox option, you’ll notice that when you move to the next line of text, a new checkbox will automatically be added. This feature lets you get into serious list-making mode so you can get more organized in your work and your life.
A number of platforms also support more advanced checkbox options, including indentation. Have you noticed that many versions of Evernote now let you create auto-checkboxes?
