    Just want to wish @roschler a Happy New Year! And relax in the knowledge you've evolved the "State Of The Art" regarding Evernote! Hope you get to take your programs on to greater things.

    When you start the paperless route, particularly when you're converting lots of paper history, the 1GB limit may be an issue. I had a *LOT* of reference paper built up over 30+ years, and whilst some editorial weeding went on at input, in many cases it's easier to "scan first, ask questions later" - particularly with a ScanSnap! Having said that, I got close to my limit less than a handful of times, and over it it only once. In most cases it was a question of waiting a day or two for my limit to reset, or scanning to a local folder so I could move notes across later. Only warning - do not get too close to the limit. There's a warning at some point, but no repeats or reminders - once you hit the limit your account is stuck and you could lose a note or two in the cracks. Keep an eye on your usage! And I agree with GM - ScanSnaps are the Bee's Knees when it comes to copying. If only I were as disciplined at keeping up to date. There's a bit of 2012 still to process here..

    Agreed - keeping people up to date with information without burying them in unwanted, unclassified and probably un- re- findable emails is difficult at the best of times. Using a shared notebook means you can keep your audience right up to date conveniently and painlessly (for them). Sharing needs some work though to refine the permissions angles, and support better presentation of tags.

    I'm a Premium user I'd say you are pushing the envelope too far if you expect Evernote to OCR the website. Even human eyes can't pickup the details. http://www.evernote....7c50cc00a0abb8d But the actual image is another matter. The OCR did a fine job on http://www.evernote....5cbd1e3174b63f1 Searched and found 3 - celebrate 3 - birthday 5 - wish 1 - best I was surprised that it even found 1 - from

    LOL. That's got to be a tech support first! The new AI assisted Evernote 2013. Automatically detects when you are getting sleepy and instructs you to go to bed. When you delete notes that you shouldn't have, it then sends you to your room. -- roschler

    If you add an images to a note, the note must be sync'ed to the Evernote servers, where the OCR is done, and the note is sync'ed back. Premium users get priority over free users with respect to OCR, but I don't think that the wait is typically that long. On the order of hours, I think. Also, note that OCR is not foolproof, though it's pretty good. I'll clip the image and see what pops up.

    Go to bed Chris. That's always good advice Your business problems will all be better in the morning, because it is 2013, and time for a fresh slate! Speaking of a fresh slate, I hate to say it, but deleting the app, downloading, and reinstalling through itunes on your computer is probably the best place to start. It is a pain, especially if you have spent hours or days downloading all of your stuff into offline notebooks, but better to rip the bandaid off and hope the problem goes away then wait over a national holiday for support to get back to you, and I suspect you will get similar advice anyhow. I had to do it myself earlier this evening, and I hope sometime in the earlier hours of 2013 the syncing will be done. Raising a support ticket would be nice to let the developers know the bug is out there. I wouldn't be surprised if they are working even as we speak, and I am sure they wouldn't mind a little more stuff to keep them awake until the clock strikes 12

    I just purchased Evernote for my iMac and proceeded to download Web Clipper directly from within Evernote. I am running OS X 10 8.2 and Safari 6.0.2. After I download web clipper, I try to open it to install it and nothing happens. I do not get the Evernote icon next to my toolbar, web clipper does't appear in the list of extensions. Nothing. It's like I never tried to click on it. I tried deleting the download and retrying and nothing. I closed and reopend Safari and nothing. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Steps to reproduce: 1) Use keyboard shortcut to take a screenshot. Skitch window comes up. 2) Close window with Cmd-W 3) Keyboard shortcut no longer works, Skitch window has empty middle area, and Cmd-Q hangs. Amazingly frustrating. Quitting Skitch after each screenshot, or hiding the window with Cmd-H works works fine.

    Though I'm 65, I am new to Evernote and I want to get the most effective use as I can, but I have questions. Please note I have the following hardware: a PC laptop, iPhone 4S, and an iPad. I plan to use my Pad as my primary tool. I began using Evernote on my PC, and that was (kind of) ok. The concept was easy to understand, and before long I was using Evernote all the time. Now that I have and plan to use my iPad as my primary device, I have issues and questions. 1. Please recommend a tutorial and where I might download it. 2. What criteria did you use to decide whether to subscribe by the month or year? 3. I haven't found one (which may be the answer), but are there user Evernote user groups and is there one in the Asheville (Western North Carolina) vicinity? Thanks

    Hello all and happy new year! I'm fairly new to Evernote (or, I should say...returning to it. ) and I have a question about the search feature: I make handmade cards and as such, I'd like to create an organizational system where I can search for "birthday", for example, and all stamp sets that I own that have to do with "birthday" would come up. Now, I'm creating tags (so I get that) and I also am using the web clipper to just clip the website that has the particular stamp set. So no problems there. However, I was wondering if there's a way to search for words WITHIN the image on a particular website. For example, on this site: https://www.papertreyink.com/stamps/2012-birthday-tags-stamp-set/ There's a picture of the stamp set and one of the stamps says "Celebrate Today". However, when I go to search for "Celebrate" this note does not come up. Is there a way that I could have it come up? Or since I'm a free user, it takes time to search the images? Or do I just have to create a tag for every word on every stamp set (I'm hoping not! ) Any help on understanding how the search feature works with embedded images would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much and may your 2013 be a great one!

    Hi. It's always good to see a new kid on the block Great gear. You should be all set. http://evernote.com/...note/guide/ios/ I subscribed for the year to save money, and because I knew I would be using up a lot of gigabytes. Over time, I changed my usage, and I suppose I could easily get by with the Free account. It all depends on your use case. Here are some of my tips to optimize the experience (http://discussion.ev...ce/#entry173506 ). None that I know of (using Meetup to search), but if you stick a flag in the ground, people will come out of the woodwork. Something else to think about is that the iPad app is very limited. In part, this is design (we are pushing them to add more features all the time!) and in part it is the device / operating system. The same thing is true about the iPhone. The good news (if you are really serious about making the iPad your primary device) is that you can use a remote login service to access Evernote via your computer. This makes a HUGE difference. For example, if you want to create note links, you cannot do it on the iPad, but via Logmein or some other app for remote desktops, you can easily manage it. The only caveat is that your computer has to be turned on, so that is kind of a bummer if you are worried about wasted resources.

    Good questions! (1) Warnings You will get a warning, but it is probably easier (and perhaps wiser) to check in advance to find out. You have to be Premium to be eligible to purchase the extra gig (as far as I know) and I don't know if the extra gig is available to Business folks. It would seem to be saying so (http://evernote.com/business/features/), but it is confusing. On the Evernote website, I thought I used to be able to purchase the extra gig when I was Premium, but as a Business user, I am not finding that option now (if it ever existed). On the Mac, my account says "Premium," even though I am actually a Premium Business user (as far as I know), and I have the option to purchase an extra gig under account info. The opacity here and inconsistency probably is a result of having just implemented the Business accounts. I think they will work out the kinks in a few days. If you do upgrade to business, just contact the business customer service person and they'll take care of you. (2) Enough? It depends. I have gone paperless, and I probably use less than 100 MB most months. But, I have a somewhat unconventional approach (http://discussion.ev...ce/#entry173506 ) that may not be for you. If you do put your PDFs into your account, I'd say 1GB would be plenty (based on my past usage), but that depends on how you do other things in your account. For example, some people like to keep Word files and other documents in their accounts and constantly edit them there, and this will significantly impact their monthly upload allowance. In other words, your mileage may vary. My advice? Go Premium. As I understand it, if you do need to upgrade to Business later, the amount of Premium usage you have purchased will be available to you if you ever want to go back to Premium (http://evernote.com/...sources/faqs/#1).

    Hello Evernote staff, I love Shared Notebooks. They are addictive. Once you invite one person you find yourself incrementally thinking of other people that may be interested and invite more. I'd like to see an enhancement to make that process easier (without it turning into a spamming tool of course). I'd like Evernote to remember the Invite messages and permission settings I have used in the past, kind of like the feedback messages in eBay. I'd like this to be done on a per-notebook basis since it is common to have different Invite messages and settings for different Shared Notebooks. A sample interaction showing how I'd like to see the feature work. I have a Shared Notebook that I've had for a while. When I go to Invite someone new, it shows me a list of Invite messages I have used in the past, in most recently used order (MRU), that I can select from to fill the Invite message box, with the ability to still edit the message. It would also auto-fill the user rights and "login to preview" settings from the last Invite I performed. If anybody else would like to see this feature, please reply and/or like this post. -- roschler

    My desire for brevity led you astray! I do penance now. " tricksy". Is that a typo or do I detect a fellow Tolkien fan? Roschler not false! -- roschler Gazumped was the tricksy one this time (he omitted those parentheses in his quotation). And, your elf eyes do you justice -- it is, indeed, a Tolkien allusion. I think I could duel with Stephen Colbert over our Middle Earth knowledge

    Which I got as: if you're non-premium, AND (see other posts..) not invited to edit, can you still add notes. By me, that's still no. You have to have the invite extended as GM says above. If you share a notebook in recent versions of Evernote, you have the options to allow: View notes only View notes and activity Modify notes Modify notes and invite others With the modify option, there used to be a warning that you had to be a Premium user to make changes, which now seems to have disappeared. Seems to suggest that either I was wrong or this restriction has changed - but you might want to test it out before making any rash promises! You do need to be a Premium user to allow others to edit in the first place - just tested that on my 'other' account and while the option box says "invite others to view or edit this notebook" the permissions I'm offered are only the first two above. There is no 'modify'. Thankyouverymuch. I think the OP was asking about sharing with her boss. There was nothing there about view only, so presumably, the boss could foot the bill, become Premium (or better yet, Business) and invite the OP to join one of his notebooks. This would enable both of them the power to modify notes there (assuming the boss gave those permissions). Your advice (my interpretation here) seems to suggest that they both have to become Premium (http://discussion.ev...nt/#entry159785) and I don't think that is the case (see this page for an outdated screenshot of the Mac http://www.princeton...e-notebook.html). For Roschler, you are correct. I missed that part of his post in parenthesis (my own addled brain). If the owner of the Premium account shares a notebook and does NOT allow modifications, then no one can modify them except Roschler (it doesn't matter if the invitees are Premium, Business, or Free). [EDIT:] Wait a second! I know why I "missed" that part of Roschler's post. I was quoting your post gazumped, and you edited out the parentheses. Very tricksy of you

    Hello gazumped, I just did a round if Invites and my experience concurs with your latest post and GrumpMonkey's above that. Premium users can Invite and allow those joining to modify notes. The "others" don't have to be premium. -- roschler

    @BNF I had you down as a tattoo artist or similar? (how wrong could I be)

    Just to clarify, it doesn't cost anything to go over that amount. You just can't go over it, and won't be able to upload anything. This is not the same as your phone company, which will charge you an arm, a leg, and maybe a pound of flesh closest to your heart in order to pay for an accidental email download. If you want extra space, you have to purchase an extra gig, as BNF said.

    $5 per gig. I think you can only do this four times per month for a maximum of five gigs. Also, it's not recurring & does not extend your refresh date. IOW, if you're down to 2 days left in your cycle & you add another gig, you have only two days to use up as much of that extra gig as you can. You do not have 30 days to use that additional gig.

    In my experience so far - no. That seems to come under the heading of add/ edit/ delete. You can't add a note directly to that notebook, or create it in another notebook and move it across. G Yes. If the person sharing a notebook is Premium and they invite someone, then they can extend the privilege to modify notes. For example, a teacher with thirty students could become Premium, share a notebook with the class, and everyone in the class could edit it, regardless of what type of subscription they have. At least, that is how I understand the system. However, the students could not share an editable notebook with the teacher, even though the teacher is Premium. The student(s) sharing the notebook(s) would have to become Premium before they could extend that ability to the teacher.

    tag:1 tag:2 should result in tag 1 and tag 2 For an OR search, you use the Any: operator. SO, as I understand it, it defaults to AND searches. OR searches can be obtained with Any: http://dev.evernote.com/documentation/local/chapters/search_grammar.php

    PS - I'm very big into flowers & butterflies. So I also use those as tags for the dies/cuts that I own, so I can quickly view all the butterfly dies I have. I also use a tag "Got it!" to differentiate between the ones I actually own vs the ones I'd like to get.

    Although I'm not much of a stamper, I also make handmade cards & do some papercraftng. I do more with embossing folders & die cutters (regular & electronic.) As a result, I tend to have less phrases & simply more images/patterns/etc & generate phrases with the Silhouette's print & cut feature. However, what I would do in the example you provided, is type into the note the phrase "Celebrate today" and tag it with "birthday" as well as other occasions it may be suitable for like "retirement", "congratulations", "baby", etc. I would also tag it "phrase". This way, if I were looking for a phrase for a retirement card, I would filter on "phrase", "retirement". I would not necessarily type in all the phrases of all the stamps I owned simply because I probably won't remember them & would rely upon this filtering system. (Which is why the tagging system is so good.) But if, for some reason, I loved the phrase "Celebrate today" & was pretty sure I'd remember it, I'd add the phrase in my note with the photo of the stamp set. OTOH, if I loved one or more of the other stamps & that's why I bought this set, the chances of me remembering I have a stamp that says "celebrate today" are not that good & I would rely upon the filtered search.

    I didn't expect that searching a TXT file attachment to a note would work - I've always understood that the content of notes and pictures is searchable, as are PDF attachments; all other file types are just stored. Although with most files types the argument is that there are too many variables to separate the actual content from the codes. Wouldn't have thought that applied to TXT files, so maybe that is a viable request. It does look like the product guides are misleading though - unless the author knew something we don't... Importing files into Evernote via a folder does give you a note with the same title as the file, so here's another argument for long and descriptive file names as a short-term work around. If there are TXT files with detailed content that's required to be searchable, the only option is a quick cut and paste into the note. If there are a lot of files, I imagine it would be possible to streamline the repetitive cutting and pasting process with an AHK script.

    So I didn't read the fine print and had my wife get me a moleskin which I had planned to use with my Android. Unfortunately, when I couldn't get the tags to work I figured out that it's not supported on the platform. So in order to help me avoid some embarrassment, how about you guys put a priority on the Android support. Pleeeeeease.

    Fix: 1) Enable GPS on your phone 2) Open Evernote->Settings->Other Options 3) Uncheck the GPS box 4) Disable GPS on your phone Short answer: this "feature" becomes available when you try to change the GPS setting in Evernote and you currently have your GPS service disabled on your device. I was really alarmed when I saw this was an issue!! I'm not sure if it's been explained like this, but I think this is what happened for me: Both GPS & Network locations were checked in Evernote, and I noticed my notes contained the GPS coordinates of where I wrote the note. My first impression was that it would've been nice for the app to ask me if I wanted to basically have a record of exactly where I was every time I made a note, but I figured it could be switched off. When I found the settings, I don't think they were clearly labeled. I was looking for: [ ] Add my location to my notes. Instead, I guess it's implied that if you don't allow either of the two, tagging via GPS or via Wireless, then your notes will not be geotagged. Here is where it gets bad (and confusing, and alarming): When your device's GPS "sensor" is disabled, you are unable to change the GPS setting in Evernote! I wouldn't create software where this is the intended behavior, but Evernote seems to be a pretty epic product... for free, and even better with offline syncing ($5/mo)! With any luck, the fix for this is in the works. The Windows 8 Client, now that is a nightmare Hope this helps in the meanwhile.

    Hi again Don't know whether your boss will be able to set up a share from his hardware - the details change so fast around here that a little experimentation may be necessary to make this work.. On a PC you right-click a notebook, on a mobile (and presumably a tablet) you select a notebook from the notebook list, and in each case choose the option that mentions sharing. Go for individuals, and look for the option that allows your user to edit notes. You'll be asked to provide their email address at some point, which will spark an email giving the notebook details to the other person. When you receive your email, 'join' the new notebook, and that should be that. Hope that helps..

    Hello Newbie, welcome to the forums.. You don't need to be a Premium user to share a view only notebook, but you do if you want to allow your sharee to edit your notes. If you and your boss just want to see what you each have written, just share one of your notebooks with him, and get him to share one of his with you. If you're looking to get notes edited in either direction then yes, you'll both need to be Premium users and allow the appropriate permissions. Do remember that this isn't real time communications - when you make a change to a note your system has to sync with the Evernote servers to pass the information along, then your boss's system has to sync to receive it. It's a good idea to manually sync before and after you make each change to a shared book. Hope that helps..
