Harness the power of Evernote for Mac, a popular cloud note-taking and note-sharing tool. This course begins with a look at ways Evernote can help you note and track important items and then build and work with notes and collect notebooks for sharing. Author David Rivers also shows how to take and store photos, screenshots, and even video in notebooks. Plus, the powerful tagging and search features help keep your notes organized and accessible. The course also covers the notebook sharing and protection features, so your privacy is maintained at all times.
If you do plan on sharing individual notes or entire notebooks, for that matter, with other people. You might have contents that you'd like to keep hidden. For example, you might have a spreadsheet with important information. Some of that could be confidential. Well, you can hide information people should not be seeing by encrypting it. That's what we're going to do right now. I'm going to work with this note called my Itinerary for Trip to LAX. And I do want to share my trip information, maybe not my confirmation code. So in that case, to encrypt something, to hide it from people we're sharing this with, all we have to do is Click and Drag over the contents we want to encrypt.
Now here in the Mac version we could go to the Edit menu where you will find, Encrypt Selected Text, Shift+Cmd+X is the keyboard shortcut. Or if you prefer right-clicking, right-click your selected content, and choose Encrypt Selected Text from there. Now you'll be prompted for an encryption passphrase. No this is not a password it can be a whole phrase that you type in to reveal the hidden content. When you type something in you don't see what you're typing, so go ahead and try something if you're following along. You'll need to re-enter that down below and notice that Evernote does not store a copy of your passphrase. So you might want to write it down somewhere.
If you forget it, you won't be able to recover the encrypted content. So you might consider giving yourself a hint. And another option is to remember the passphrase until you quit Evernote. That way you won't be prompted for your passphrase every time you change notes and come back and need to reveal that content. Only when you exit Evernote and come back will you be prompted for it. I'm going to leave it unchecked for now and click OK. Alright, when we click anywhere in the note you can see there's some hidden content here.
And to get at that, we can click the drop-down, to show the encrypted text, or decrypt text permanently from here as well. Let's show the encrypted text. It seems simple. Oh, but we're prompted for that passphrase. Notice the Hint appears down below, once we type it in and click OK, there it is, it's revealed. Now we go to another note, and we come back to the itinerary, it's hidden again, encrypted. And I can click the drop-down, to show that text, and type in the passphrase again, every single time. Now if I chose to click that check box to remember my passphrase, I'd just have to click here and it will be revealed when I click Show Encrypted Text. All right, let's go down to something else, maybe the flight number here. And some of this other information should be encrypted, we'll select it, right-click, and choose Encrypt Selected Text.
Look what happens now. We can create another passphrase, a new passphrase. And it's not recommended that you use multiple different passphrases. It becomes very difficult to remember. So you might want to use the exact same one here. And again you'll have to reenter it and you can add a Hint as well. I'm going to click OK. Now its hidden and if I've used the same passphrase, its going to be easy to remember when I go to this drop-down. To let's say decrypt it permanently, that means it will no longer be encrypted but I will need the pass phrase to do that.
Click OK, and there it is. Now when I leave the note and come back notice it's no longer hidden, because I've decrypted it permanently. Same thing here when we click the drop-down. Decrypt text, I'll be prompted for the pass phrase. Press Return or click the OK button. And now it's no longer hidden and it will not be hidden if I go to another note and come back. Because I decrypted it permanently. So, that's how you hide contents, pieces of notes, for example, that you don't want people seeing when you're sharing notes or entire notebooks.
