The big Discovery 10 Posted September 20, 2014 Share Posted September 20, 2014 Hello! I have just come back to Evernote after finding out its many new features . I didn't get into it back around 2009, but now I think this tool is ready. I understand how to keep track of my internet research but I am having trouble wrapping my head around how I can use Evernote to manage my writing. I have read about how people are using Evernote for their writing rather than doing it in other apps such as Wordpress (for example). However, I wonder if Evernote is still the best tool for the job if I am constantly referencing other notes in Evernote (eg. for academic writing or technical blog post)? The issue I am having is that I cannot have two notes open at the same time: if "note 1" is my working writing piece and "note 2" is whatever note I am reading over and evaluating whether of not I can use it in some way, then ideally, I'd like to be dragging in clips of notes into the main writing note; however, currently, I find myself constantly jumping around between notes - as I don't think it is possible to have two open at once (?) I thought that using notebook links might be useful (pasting the link to a relevant note into the main writing piece) but if I click on the link, I cannot easily get back to my main writing note (the back arrow does not take me back - i don't know if this is a bug? Perhaps it does this because my writing note is in a different notebook than the note I am referencing?) I am using the latest Evernote for Windows desktop (downloaded yesterday). So are there tricks in Evernote that are invaluable for writing that references many other notes, or is there another better tool that is more specifically design for this type of thing? Perhaps there are plug-ins that would help? Perhaps (hopefully) I am missing something basic? I am using Evernote on Windows 7 and the Chrome plug-in for clipping notes. Thanks for any tips!
