My main note taker is TiddlyWiki. But it doesn't have an official rich text editor so it might not be for you.
You probably already know about alternativeto:
They list joplin at the top. I'm thinking of checking it out, since it can be made secure, if that's what matters to you.
Really the only reason to use SN over a host of other solutions is because it's encrypted and synchronized.
The only reason to get premium is for the plugins and maybe the file attachment.
But, for me, the biggest problem with SN is that the plugins don't work when you're offline on mobile even for paying customers. I don't believe for a minute that there is a technical reason for this loss of functionality. I think it's more of the heavy-handed DRM protection that's trying to prevent users from buying a month of SN and getting the plugins for longer. So they do an overkill and delete all the plugins every time you're offline, even if you're a paid-up customer. I've done enough Android programming to recognize that it probably takes MORE work to delete your plugins every time than it would just to leave them in place.
Haha, that was the first task, for two of my groups. I hope that hasn't caused a problem.
I'll mail you, thanks.
You should know that I looked long and hard for a suitable blogging platform like this (free, with option to extend, open source, minimalist look, relatively easy to set up, option for browser only work, no server required) and there were next to none. https://bearblog.dev/ is the only other one I'd consider.
There are no keyboard shortcuts, the developer said it would be quite difficult to build shortcuts into Standard Notes. Take a look at TextExpander: textexpander.com, it might work for you
Hi there, the Plain Editor is based on the web-based editor that is provided by the operating system running on the device someone is using. In all cases, there aren't any rich-text formatting options. You can install editors provided by Extended or the community if you would like to install editors that include rich-text formatting options.
To "change" your email, you have to export your notes and import them into a new account, more details here.
As for deleting without access to the email, I don't think it's possible. You could just delete all the notes after transferring to a new account.
Extended users can set a custom domain for their Listed blog. 🙂
You can access your Listed blog's settings via the Action menu of the desktop/web app. The settings page will open in your default browser and you can then follow the instructions provided and submit a request that will be manually reviewed and within a week (usually a a business day if possible) your custom domain will be connected to your blog.
I have used SN, Evernote, Joplin, Simplenote, Onenote, Google Keep, Apple Note, and now using Obsidian.
It’s very good (for me) and secure (because you store on local but you can sync using icloud or dropbox or their $5 sync service).
Really looks like joplin but it’s something that i prefer obsidian than joplin.
I'm afraid it's unpredictable. I am however using a VPN (Mullvad), perhaps that could be related? I've used the VPN in combination with Standard Notes for quite a few months without issues now, though.

> May I ask what an account reset is?
And lastly without a valid email we can't offer you support on your account, in case something goes wrong generally speaking. So you wouldn't be able to contact us for account-related help.
Exactly as stated above, not a free feature, but here you'll find some more info:
Does it say anywhere it may be a "conflicted copy"? As per this article, this is a feature introduce to ensure no data is lost when the network connection is spotty.
Tag nesting = Folders, and yes, it is mentioned on the website: https://standardnotes.com/features , near the bottom of page:
> Nested folders
> Create nested folders from your tags with easy drag and drop. Folders also supports Smart Filters, which allow you to build custom queries for viewing and organizing your notes.
Core Plan does not include this feature, nearest is the Plus Plan.
Those themes require a subscription. You can check out the plans here.
You can also use community-made themes: https://github.com/jonhadfield/awesome-standard-notes#themes
Did you try downloading and installing it using the instructions on: Standard Notes Linux ?
Perhaps there is something wrong with the snaps.
I would love to help further but i don't have Ubuntu on any machine.
If the issue persist after you've tried the installation instructions above, I'll install Ubuntu and try to figure it out.
1)- Yes. If you mouse over the informational (i) for the files, you'll see that it applies to stuff like dropbox and google files. The "end to end encryption" under the $0 free plan covers what you normally save, which you are calling notes. You're good. Your notes are encrypted before being backed up to the standard notes server, as mentioned here ( https://standardnotes.com/help/6/i-ve-forgotten-my-password-what-should-i-do ) and other places.
2)- If you trust ProtonDrive, you are probably good. ProtonDrive claims to have the same protection that Standard Notes does- the data is encrypted on your side and sent up only as ciphertext to which the company hosting lacks the key. This is the only thing /u/basicslovakguy got wrong, based on what Protonmail claims about Proton Drive. Proton Drive is not available to Proton's free accounts, it is worth pointing out. I think if you are comfortable storing files on proton drive, that standard notes doesn't offer you much here- it is much more interesting if you are storing things on google drive or dropbox, where by default the cloud provider can fondle every thought you've ever had, sell it to the highest bidder, that sort of thing.
3)- No, exactly as basicslovakguy stated, as a free user you'll be mostly limited to keeping private notes that only you can read.
4)- The plans are clearly delimited as having a dollar sign ($), and you should always assume this means USD unless the website clearly states otherwise or is obviously one of the vastly smaller economies (Canada: 13% of USA GDP; Australia: 6.4% USA GDP, New Zealand 7% GDP, etc). On top of that, several independent states (countries, nations) use the US Dollar as their currency. If it has a dollar sign, it means US Dollars unless you have a good reason to suspect otherwise, like a .ca web address.
You can pay in way more currencies though, including Monero if you wish to be untraecably private.
I had a similar request, but now (due to the new plan rollout?) there seem to be an option to change the email address in your account settings (bottom left user icon > account settings).
On that account settings page there is now an option at the top "Change email".
This option wasn't there before (or I completely missed it).
I now want to change the email of the extended dashboard but I can't to that page, I could do it before the new plan rollout. To get to the extended dashboard I first go to this page:
Extended dashboard link but then I get redirected to the homepage.
How do I get to the extended dashboard page?
NOTE: I do all the above through the firefox browser (windows).
I'm sorry, but I don't frankly understand the argument that you are trying to bring with your screenshot. I neither understand what you are comparing against (referring to the use of the word instead).
This is the definition of header syntax in Markdown: https://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax#header. Please, read it through, and you will learn that there are exactly two legit ways to define headers.
My screenshot shows a user interface bug in Standard Notes: the heading text and underline use different font sizes, which makes writing Markdown impossible by any practical means.
Ah I see. I don't think that's really part of the markdown syntax. Markdown was intended to do just the simple stuff in order to create a readable source that could also be easily converted to html. As Gruber writes:
> Markdown is not a replacement for HTML, or even close to it. (...) For any markup that is not covered by Markdown’s syntax, you simply use HTML itself.
That would mean there should be multiple solutions to this problem, including multiple <br/>s or &nbsp;'s.
Now the 'Markdown Basic' editor clearly doesn't comply with that intention as it doesn't render any html at all. If you want a better interpretation, switch to the Markdown Pro editor.
As somebody who only stores notes and files and I find the pricing a little too steep too, $47 because of the encrypted files. I feel lucky I am locked in the old plan and I will remain a customer but otherwise I would probably pay for Mailbox.org which includes an online office suite with the email service, for a home user wit no need for a markdown editor, Tokenvault or multiple themes, it might be enough.
I am locked in the old price and I only use SN for notes, everything works for me and I happy with it but I admit that I might not have signed up under the current pricing plan, as a home user I don´t need half of the stuff SN has, the coding, editors, spreedsheet, etc. If I wasn´t locked into the current pricing I would probably use cryptpad.fr, for a home user I think it does the job, but with the old pricing I will remain with SN of course.
My understanding is that the Simple Task editor is just that. No extra work needed whereas in a markdown editor you'd start from scratch.
I love what Standard Notes is and has been doing btw. You guys rock! Just starting a discussion.
Here is an example of a snap that publishes multiple channels: https://snapcraft.io/intellij-idea-community
It allows users to install specific versions when they need to.
The standard-notes one does also contain channels (stable, candidate, beta, edge), but they’re all identical from what I can see. If you could publish an older version as a channel that would help greatly. It might also help in the future should you want to invite some users to beta test an upcoming release.
For #1, we're aware of the issue and have tested a fix that should be released soon. We're also testing an updated version of Redactor, which is what the Bold Editor is based on.
For #2, that's a pretty strange issue and I'm not sure what's causing it, but you can reset the app completely with the instructions provided here. Please export a set of decrypted and encrypted backups from the desktop app first. Also please make sure that you are running the latest version of the desktop app, just in case it stopped automatically updating.
For #3, which platform do you experience the issue on and which editor is being used when viewing the "locked" note? I haven't been able to reproduce the issue on the mobile and desktop apps yet.
Hi u/Isotrop3, sorry to hear that. Did you use this support article to convert your notes from Apple Notes? Did you import your notes via the mobile apps or the desktop/web app?
>I imported my notes from Apple as per the instructions on SN. I chose the encrypted option.
For what it's worth, when importing notes into the app, the encrypted and decrypted options wouldn't change anything as that affects exported notes.
Can you DM me your email so that way we can can look into the technical details of your account? If you're not comfortable with sharing it via Reddit, please send a message to [email protected] or [email protected] with a link to your comment.
I created an account on Reddit to share this with you:
As someone who recently went Extended, I had a similar desire; to have a "workbench" without having to dedicate a tag to it for some "quick and dirty" note taking that I could choose to sort however I choose, later.
!["Untagged", "tags.length", "=", 0]
!["Untagged", "tags.length", "=", 0]
This will create a view called "Untagged". I treat it as previously described. I'm not sure if this is fitting for your current needs, but hopefully it helps if you didn't already know about smart tags! I was pleasantly suprised to find that functionality.
Hi u/Independent_Property, sorry to hear that. Did you import the notes via the mobile or desktop app? Do you recall if there were any notes that were particularly large or lengthy?
If you have Extended activated on your account, you can set up a dynamic filter (via the desktop or web apps) that only displays notes over certain character lengths in the notes list:
!["Long", "text.length", ">", 500]
I'm sorry to hear that, thank you for letting me know. It's possible that since the mobile apps are built using React Native that some other things need to be changed in order for the navbar's color to change on Oppo's and OnePlus' versions of Android.
Thanks! I agree with you very much about the linking feature. But I also understand it's difficult to implement with the current structure. For one thing, it has to work with all the different editors. Then there's of course the problem that everyone has their own ideas on how it should be done. I'd personally really love a wikilinking structure like Roam Research has, but that would cause the additional problem that note titles should be unique. Considering all that, I figured I'd better not wait for something that might take a few more years and even then not work the way I want.
Promising project, but to me, it still seems a bit brittle, and you can't get all of your files out of it - it's a case-by-case export, I think.
Saying that, I sent them a donation of £150 this year. The world needs something like cryptpad.fr. I just want other people to test it. :)
> Documents I created with the "Secure spreadsheets" extension are in a format that's very hard to read as a human, and can't be opened with Gnumeric or LO Calc (I will be able to get the data out, but it's going to be a hassle).
Can you elaborate a bit more on how you created the documents and how you exported the data? If you used the option to export the sheets as .xlsx files, what kinds of issues did you run into?
You're very welcome! The updated apps should be available to download from the Play Store and App Store.
Sorry for the misspelling. here the web apps
As for their Android Apps
Note protected by individual password is really the only feature that i find really missing. Yes there are possible "data lost" if you don't remember the password but it already a risk the end user take using "your" apps and password manager exist
