  1. Past hour
  2. I use Evernote for many things: food recipes, work, hobbies, invoices... well, I think many of us do :) Recently I have been starting to utilize the "Shortcuts" feature to quickly access my most important/frequently needed Notes... well, I think many of us do :) The way I would like to have my "Shortcuts" is to have sub-categories e.g. Shortcuts > Food to faster locate my shortcuts. I have a few thousand notes and 50+ Shortcuts currently... Is there such feature currently and do others find that this could be useful as feature request? //timo
  3. Today
  4. Following up on @DTLow's comment, you can directly access shortcuts using CMD-(number), e.g. CMD-1 will open the first shortcut, CMD-2 will open the second, etc. If you make your table-of-contents note your first one, you'll always be able to jump to that using CMD-1. Hope this helps! -- Tom
  5. Curious. I was able to replicate the behavior when attaching a .jpg file on a USB memory stick. So I pulled up the SysInternals ProcMon tool, and watched what Evernote was doing when I repeated the scenario. I could see it locking and unlocking my local .exb database file (LockFile() and UnlockFileSingle() Windows calls), but no other file, in particular the file I was attaching. With respect to the file being attached, I see it referenced in a CreateFile() call, with access Generic Read, disposition Open. So it's opening the file to read it. After that, it performes a CloseFile() call on that file. That seems to be correct behavior. There are also some calls to CreateFile/CloseFile the directory that the file is in, but those also seem balanced. I'd have to look more closely to see if there's something else going on, but the scenario is repeatable. Flip side: when I went to eject it, I got the error, but there's also a "Continue" button, which I used: the device was ejected, with no apparent damage done to its file system.
  6. Again @dcon (and sorry, can't stop thinking of the popular rodent control product line when I see the new moniker), thanks for the insights, your work on the Windows Evernote, and your participation on the forums both then and now. Hope that you find happiness in your new endeavor. I haven't run the Windows preview/beta either, just following the current new web beta, and will try out the next phase Windows application so long as we can run it side-by-side with the old one (with separate databases) as promised. If the lead developer you're talking about was @kvitekp, he was also a great forum resource. I know a fair bit about operating Evernote for Windows, but there's nothing so definitive as the information coming from someone familiar with the code/design. Anyways, cheers!
  7. Yesterday
  8. Import from SD-Card to the iPad works, but without options. It will grab all pictures that are on the SD card, ignore all the rest (no general file import), check for duplicates and push the new ones into photos. I prefer to have a chance to review the pics still on the SD card and eliminate all those that do not need to be imported. Then the photos app on the iPad lacks a lot of functions available on the Mac: Tagging, EXIF-editing, Smart Albums etc. So I prefer to get pictures to the Mac. Then I am using a program called Graphics Converter (that is much more than just a converter) to sort through, build the catalogue, get the tags and EXIFs set, and save it into a folder structure. It will even do RAW development and basic editing. Affinity is then for the few pics that need further editing.
  9. i knew that! Yes, I heard stories of that! As far I know, when that was abandoned, the original C++ code from before was brought back. (That also poisoned the lead dev to anything XAML related) Yes, completely different from v3.5. Originally, it was supposed to be well before when I left. I literally LOLd at them (as my old boss can attest to!). He did (grudgingly) admit that I was right... I'm not running that preview/beta, so no idea where they are on it.
  10. No lag on my Mac; On Macs, the note metadata is stored in a small SQLite database (25MB for 20,000 notes) afaik Number of notes is not a performance issue for Mac users
  11. Don't know what to say. I just tested the hotkeys and they worked for me in the Current and Beta web versions.
  12. Isn't the reason no one has heard back about the beta program, that there are no betas to test yet? I thought the videos made this clear. The only beta available right now is what Ian Small called the "modern web experience", which seems to be randomly available to more and more people. But it doesn't even seem to have a way to report bugs, so it doesn't seem like a formal beta (maybe I'm wrong about this - I applied for the beta program, and some weeks later the modern web experience became available to me, but no notification that I was now a beta tester). I'm only talking about the "new" Evernote. There is still an active beta program for existing releases - betas for upgrades to the current iOS version still happen.
  13. Interesting info, thanks PinkElephant. Interesting to hear that import and catalog is the weak spot.
  14. Maybe it is just a question of patience. Some betas were closed to new participants because they wanted to run it with the same bunch of people from the beginning to the end. Makes for more valid results, when you do not have new people dropping in halfway through.
  15. With Affinity Photo there is an excellent iPad-Adaptation of the Mac/Windows Program. I would advise to run it on an iPad Pro to have enough horsepower, preferably with a lot of memory. Each JPEG + RAW carries appr. 40MB ... The combination with the pencil is a dream when working on the pics. Full RAW development and editing is included, and for purchase, not as an abo. There is Affinity Designer and Publisher as well for the iPad, making for a full creative publishing workflow in iOS. The only thing I am missing is a powerful import and catalogue app for the iPad. Affinity up to now has nothing similar to Lightroom. And the Photos app is quite restricted on the iPad, compared to the Mac. Because I have a 32“ photo-calibrated high-res HDR monitor to do my picture work on my MacBook Pro, it is still more the Mac than the iPad for this. I am now hoping that with „sidecar“, it will become possible to use the iPad with pencil as a graphics tablet for the Mac. But on holiday, when you want to travel light, I have a full photo import & editing suite with me, just carrying my camera, a small SD-to-lightning-Adapter and my iPad Pro 10.5. If the Hotel WiFi is good enough, I can even sync what I download to the iPad into iCloud, making sure I do not loose pictures just in case.
  16. I noticed the same thing, it happens when you leave the notes column open, if you scroll to the top, it stops, and if you maximize the note, it also stops.
  17. I have been a user since 2008 and applied for the beta programme months ago and not a peep from from Evernote. Clearly 100,000 more important people than me 😀
  18. It's still baby steps, but I'm excited by the possibilities. Every year the hardware gets better, the OS gets better, the apps get better. My hope is the eventual consolidation of IPadOS and MacOS
  19. Eagerly awaiting iPadOS myself. I’m surprised to hear about photo editing. I don’t do much of that myself so I have little experience with the heavy end of editing of photos. Are the apps not full featured enough? Or is it the RAW still not supported on iPads etc?
  20. Thanks for replies! I got documents saved in harddisk and moving them to Evernote for better usability. Sometimes have them also in memory sticks, etc. When they're in Evernote, no more need them in hardisk. This how to reproduce in Evernote Windows: 1. + New Note 2. Attach file (icon) or Attach files (File menu) from a folder in harddisk or usb-memorystick 3. When note is ready, close Evernote 4. Folder can't be deleted or memorystick can't be removed as they are locked/reserved by Evernote (for no reason) 5. Kill all Evernote processes and now deleting folders and ejecting sticks becomes possible This doesn't disturb me a lot as I don't do this very frequently, but I liked to report it here if this could get fixed...
  21. Yup, it’s great to add a visual cue as to what the note is about. Super easy on macOS and iOS.
  22. Currently just north of 46,500 notes, but I seem to remember posts in the Forums years ago about users hitting the maximum number of notes - which is a stunning 100,000. There are some serious people out there - obviously too busy creating notes to post comments here...
  23. There you go. Others will have different counts. We need a desktop device for the heavy lifting stuff There's overlap where the same functions are do-able on either device. It's good idea to have backup resources.
  24. Yep, I have tried rebooting both Mac and windows and also tried clearing history and cache
  25. Thanks again for sharing. With „side-by-side“ installations I would rethink doing betas. As it is now, I can not integrate the need to have a solid, performant app and at the same time do a beta. So NO BETA until this can be done independently from the actual productive app version. P.S. This forum is full of postings where users complain about bugs, that you can’t reproduce, and then you find out they are „beta-ing“. Maybe the background color of all betas should be changed, to a light green or something.
  26. iPad- only is within reach for practically all day-to-day stuff. I am waiting for iPadOS, and the improvement of apps like EN that will be possible then. However, real editing of photos will see me using my Mac for quite a while to come.
  27. Spotlight is a Mac search, works for the whole system and has nothing to do with EN itself. You get it through the search field in the topmost menu/gadget-bar of your Mac, mostly to the right of your screen. This search is used as well by little helper apps like Alfred. With Mojave, it is a known issue that the Mac-side search will only find word in the TITLES of EN notes; not in the note text, not in the attachments and no tags. Even if you rebuild the spotlight search index, this will not improve. The internal search field of EN is available when the Program is open. It is top right inside of the program window. There you search using the internal search index of the EN app itself. This index you can rebuild by holding option, opening Help and pick the first of the additional options. Search can be a little bit off, when it depends on OCR. This is inside of pdf-documents, the yellow markers. Sometimes the OCR will think it identified a word, that in fact is something else. Can happen, especially when the font is weird, print is small or bad quality, or the scan is low resolution. This cuts both ways, it may find words that are not there, and it may not find words that are there. With good scans in typical font sizes, the OCR is reliable.
  28. Thanks for your Answer PinkElephant. It's not clear for me if I use Spotlight Search. I use the search field, the only one, inside the Evernote pages, at the bottom on right. Could you tell me which reindexing I must choose. In the Troubleshooting item of the help there is a choice between search in texts and search in spotlight. It seems that is Spotlight who allows to find inside the documents. Before this issue my search worked fine both on text, titles ans inside the documents including the pdfs and the images (since 2014 when I subscribed with a Basic subscription at the beginning). Currently even in tittles it doesn't work. Sometimes in the result, Evernote underline some words in documents that aren't the word I search.
