akevit 5 Posted February 16, 2012 Share Posted February 16, 2012 I'm trying very hard to switch from Simplenote to Evernote as Evernote offers so many additional features, however, Simplenote's extremely simplistic approach to jotting notes down and having them everywhere immediately is hard to move away from.With Simplenote I use a program called ResophNotes and it innately synchronizes every X minutes and immediately upon exiting out of a note. If you haven't seen this functionality I'd really recommend you check it out and add this to Evernote. ResophNotes also has the following options:Minimize to System TrayMinimize when press ESCStart minimizedGlobal HotkeyEvernote has basically the same options. Evernote launches at startup (minimized) and I can call it from global hotkeys, however Evernote has the upper hand in that it also has a hotkey for going direct to a new note as well as one for opening Evernote (albeit called 'Find in Evernote'). The feature that it lacks is the ability to Minimize with ESC (I know you can press ALT+F4 but it's fairly universal to have ESC do the same thing or at least define the key that performs this function; Control+Q completely exits the program).TL;DR: Synchronize changes on exit does not seem to work. Please allow me to press the escape key to minimize the program (and also trigger the sync -- which it should if it's to sync changes on exit). When creating a new note (Control+Alt+N) the note should synchronize immediately upon closing it.Edit: It appears that pressing Control+Q does force the sync, however now Evernote is closed and the program needs to be relaunched for the Global Hotkeys to work. This only works for the program itself, it will not sync new notes via Ctrl+Alt+N after being created unless I load Evernote then press Control+Q to completely quit the program. Link to comment
