white.tornado 1 Posted January 16, 2012 Share Posted January 16, 2012 When I recently started my PhD research, I was looking for a way to organize my notes, a way that would last them for at least 3 years (duration of the project) and would allow me to find them back when needed. As I had also recently switched from PC to Mac and iPad, Evernote was the obvious choice. Over the last couple of months I have embraced it fully and I am trying to include all of my research notes in it now. There are many obvious advantages to EN which I will not go into now, bottom-line is that I really enjoy it.I have become a Premium member to get my notebooks offline on my iPad and to get the four-digit protection, again for EN on iPad, so that no one can mess with it. It was only when I upgraded that I noticed that the biggest advantage of going Premium is the extended storage space per month, which led me to ponder whether I should not be making use of that. I am after all paying for it. However, I use EN at this moment mainly for my research and all I do is write. I've never used web clipper, nor have I included even one Word Document or PDF. I know, this may be a bit old fashioned, but isn't this what a note taking program is primarily supposed to be for? (I hope EN will agree with me and keep supporting users like me and not move its functionality to other areas completely.)My question to you is: why do you include files? Why should I? I am writing outlines and chapters still in a word processor (Nisus Writer Pro), is there an advatange to be including those files in EN? If in EN, can I reopen them in my word processor and change them? Where on my hard disk will they be stored, once in EN?But most importantly: why do you include files, why is that useful to you?Thanks in advance Link to comment
