AK7 8 Posted November 20, 2013 Share Posted November 20, 2013 That's quite a handful! Let me explain the logic behind each one. Don't get me wrong, Evernote is a wonderful piece of software, a solid 9/10 in my view. Just that with these additions - at least for me - it would become a 10/10. (1) Custom taxonomies In Evernote, you are just limited to Notebooks and Tags as a means of organization. Since I'm a heavy tags user, I end up having to come up with intricate and not very efficient means of organizing them. So, I put a $- prefix for document classifications; a q- prefix for note types (e.g. article; image; video; book review; interview; etc); a # prefix for people; a numeric prefix for time classifications; an @ prefix for places; etc, etc. It would be much easier if I could just create separate custom taxonomies of a tag-like form for each of those. This could be made even more effective by enabling different post taxonomies (e.g. for books reviews vs. recipes vs. wine reviews vs. "vanilla" standard notes) and custom meta boxes that could be associated with each post type, but maybe I'm going off the reservation by now. In other words, basically make it like WordPress where creating custom taxonomies (in addition to default Categories and Tags) and custom post types (in addition to Posts and Pages) is quite easy. (2) Easier Tags Management * When you select two tags, you can also choose to show notes that either have an AND relationship or an OR relationship with them. (Current default is AND). * Add combinations of Notebook/Tag to short-cuts (currently you can only add a notebook or a tag individually). But what if I want to only have a shortcut for a particular tag in one particular notebook? * When you select a tag and start scrolling up to take it to its desired parent, the scrolling speed can be frustratingly slow... problem if you've accumulated a hundred or so tags that need to be organized into parents! (3) Reference/citation Support With this one stroke it would basically make Scrivener redundant. Though I'm aware writers are a niche market, nonetheless I don't imagine it would be very hard to implement and the absolute numbers of those who'll benefit (and use the software more!) are large.
