Dan M. 1 Posted July 30, 2014 Share Posted July 30, 2014 Hi everyone, Long time Evernote user, first time forum poster. I've got a question/request. One thing I've begun using Evernote for is a dedicated "commonplace book" notebook, essentially nothing but short quotes that I find in my daily readings of books, blogs, and whatever else. I clip or type in the snippets, each to its own note, sequential by date of creation. This is really useful for me. However, there is no good way (that I am aware of) to review this notebook. Let's say instead of using Evernote, I wrote this out longhand in a physical notebook. I could pick it up and flip to any page and begin reading. In Evernote, I can search or jump around and do plenty of things I couldn't do with a physical notebook, but I can't ever get this kind of "page" view of my individual quotes where I see many at once. I'm always looking at an individual Evernote note, not the kind of "all at once" you'd get looking at a physical notebook page. Using the snippet view helps, but isn't quite what I'm looking for as some quotes are very long. The ideal thing for me, and I don't think there's a way to do this, would be some sort of merged view of all the notes in this Evernote notebook. It would look similar to how separate notes that have been merged into one looks, but would only be a view and still keep the individual notes separate. Maybe this is a very specific concept (though there are many articles out there about using Evernote as a commonplace book), but I personally think it would be very useful. Am I alone? Anything like this in the works?Dan Link to comment
