Today, we’re adding two features to Evernote for Windows Desktop that you’ve been asking for. One allows you to work better with others, and the second lets you customize your Shortcuts layout. Let’s take a look.

Request Editing Permission to Shared Notebooks

Whenever you share a notebook with someone, you can choose to give the recipients view-only or editing rights. Sometimes, things change and a person who was initially just a viewer becomes a collaborator on the project. Now, Evernote for Windows allows anyone with access to a notebook the ability to request editing permissions. To do this, the viewer clicks on the lock in the top right corner of any note in the notebook. The request is sent to the notebook owner, and, once editing rights are granted, an email is sent back to the person requesting the rights.


Horizontal Shortcuts

Shortcuts let you quickly jump to the notes, notebooks, and tags that you want to access frequently. By default we place shortcuts into Evernote’s left panel. Some of our users asked that we design a horizontal layout. We listened. From the View menu you can choose to have Shortcuts displayed horizontally above the note list. To add a shortcut, just drag an item into the bar.

And More…

We love adding some user-requested features into the app. You’ll also find the app faster and more reliable with this update. Let us know what you think.
