Evernot 6 Posted April 27, 2012 Share Posted April 27, 2012 How peculiar. In similar apps, when I select "New Note" or equivalent, I usually get taken to a 1-line note title field to be typed in, then when I hit Enter, I am taken to the note editor (content) field to begin entering text or whatever. But not in EN.Pressing Ctrl+N takes me straight to the note content field, where I am expected to enter the note's title, then I click the title field and the title gets copied there. However, I side with those who don't require the first line of note content to duplicate the title; rule #1 of database design is don't duplicate data unnecessarily!Well, ok, I guess it helps those who are in a hurry and are happy for the title to mirror the first line of data, such as a date. But it soon becomes a royal PIA:If I clear the title from the note content (after clicking the note title field to copy it there), leaving it empty, then click another note on the list, the title of the newly created note reverts to Untitled note. So it seems one cannot create a titled, but empty note.If I create a new note, type "hello" in the content, click the title field to make this the title, then change "hello" to "stupid" in the content field, after 30 seconds without entering further data, the note title changes automagically to "stupid".Can this "feature" be disabled? See also this thread from 2010. Seems nothing has been done about it. Isn't there some way I can prevent the title from changing on me like this?(Added)Solution: Avoid this mess altogether by creating a node named #Template (preceded by the hash sign # to float it to the top of the list). Every time you want a new note, Copy it to the same (or another) Notebook. Then just edit the title. Done. Link to comment
