Susquatch 0 Posted May 23, 2013 Share Posted May 23, 2013 I am a new user evaluating Evernote to see if it will meet my needs. I have literally thousands of notes on my old palm pilot platform. Displaying them on the Android platform will be a challenge and stacks (a very familiar term to me!!!) will help a great deal. But it isn`t enough. It would be great if there were an option in the folder list and the memo list screens to put each item on its own line in regular size font. This applies especially to the Windows PC Version. The whole idea of thumbnails or tiles is great looking but very inefficient for power users. I just want a detailed compressed list with one memo or folder per line. On the Android platform, each folder line has a second line with settings on it (private, or number of folders) - this is also very wasteful. There should be an option to hide the secondary line, and the separation divider. It should be possible to list around 20 folders or memos per screen this way. I should add that MobIsleNotes (the only viable competition as far as I am concerned) has recently recognized this need and is making changes to facilitate it. And yes, I know that tags and search are great tools. And I use them a lot. But I learned long ago that there are two main kinds of people in any environment - pilers and filers. If you try to turn either of them into the other, you ruin their productivity. I prefer to think that this diversity has great value. But it does mean that the best way to organize information is not the same for all of us. I am inherently a piler. That means that I remember WHERE something is in relation to other things, not how it is filed. Hope this little discussion helps make a great product even better! Cheers! Link to comment
