    BTW, I know everyone likes to rag on the evangelists. But this is my theory on any software or hardware. When it comes to crucial things, don't be an early adopter & make sure you've thoroughly tested to make sure it works the way you think it should. That just seems like good, common sense to me.

    Hi. Welcome to the forums. This video ought to help. https://www.evernote.com/shard/s74/sh/fa16ae3a-a7a3-429a-8fd3-1a5110d3a4c9/4dfa657fb4e46d51c808f84a40c728d9

    Two quick feature requests: Have a "Remove Date" button or option for reminders - vs. removing the reminder all together, then retagging the note as a reminderAdd a "Today" button to the "Add Date to Reminder" menu option (right now, I just see "Tomorrow" and "In a week") And here are the standard motivational phrases / thinly veiled threats to get your PMs to make this a priority (choose your favorite!): I am a free user, and if I just had these features I'd totally become a premium member.I'm currently a Premium member, but the lack of these simple features is astounding. If these aren't built I am totally leaving Evernote forever.These features should be easy, based on my obvious visibility into your code and roadmap. I could churn it out in 5.4 nanoseconds myself.I know your team works hard and has a lot of requests. You guys are doing a great job! And I hope you can get to my features. And I hope if I empathize with you, you'll feel a sudden obligation to keep me happy.If you build these for me, I'll totally be your biggest fan ever and tell my friends/family/strangers about Evernote (note: adult version of "If you do this I'll be your best friend!").I would totally pay more for these features if that shows you how valuable and a priority these features should be (so long as any pay increase is purely hypothetical).I will try to be funny and appear like I'm not trying to motivate you / make thinly veiled threats, in the real hope that - er, never mind on this one. Cheers, xmasmoneky (sic)

    Im sure this isn't the first time this has been mentioned, bur Evernote for iPad really needs some basic font control. Nothing fancy, just some way to vary size and perhaps bold and italicize selected text. Example: sometimes content pastes microscopically. Don't know why, but it's a real pain to manually fix this.

    You hit the nail right on the head. - The mark up feature as it stands is our v1. Expect big changes to that soon. - The note editor is also going to have get long needed improvements soon.

    Hi - as long as you're using a strong password in the first place it doesn't sound too much of an issue...

    You would use a dedicated app b/c EN has stated they are not trying to be another task manager. So using the right tool for the job would make sense. Simple lists are not in the same league as a dedicated task manager. In a similar vein, I can type a note in EN. But if I want a lot of special formatting & the presentation is important, I will use a true word processor b/c EN is not trying to be a word processor, either.

    I suppose we'd also need to add FLOOR as well, probably more fitting in my case... (Yes, Stack --> Notebooks --> Notes is the only hierarchy presented to the user).

    Well, I guess it's a pretty darn great compliment to Evernote if customers want to use Evernote so badly for everything that they get angry when they find that they can't.

    I just recently crossed the 3000 note mark and here's what worked and didn't work for me: Worked: - Noting nearly everything regardless of size (with the exception of videos and "non-information" photos such as holiday snaps). Everything still fits on my devices and will until they are replaced. UI reaction time is ok, too. So far, Moore's law has been on my side here, and I expect it to stay this way if I don't feel the urge to archive my movie collection on Evernote. - Tagging notes with "received", "outgoing", "reference", "minutes" (or none of those if, well, they are none of those, like idea sketches). This helps a lot if you're looking for documentation on what you sent vs. what someone sent you, look up earlier agreements/promises made, as well as to filter out stuff that's non-personal (i.e. reference material). - Tagging notes with @read or @todo or @waiting-for (or none of those, I do have more specific contexts which I rarely use). These mainly help me to filter out stuff which is transient. I clip a lot of reading material much of which I end up not reading, and @read makes it easy to clean up out-of-date stuff, stuff that I did read which simply didn't help me much, or articles on topics which turned out nonrelevant. If, on the other hand, a piece of reading material contains valuable information, I'll remove the @read tag turn it into a "reference" note (often including text describing with the main message I extracted) - Note title format "TYPE COMPANY/PERSON TOPIC KEYWORD1 KEYWORD2...". E.g. "Letter Mom's Gas Company Increased Fees 2013 Utilities". I don't like too much to use content-specific tags. Also, I'm using Evernote's created date (instead of the note title) for the day on which correspondence was received/sent. This way, I gain valuable screen real estate for the "real" note title. - Use only very few general content-related tags, e.g. "finance", "spouse", "health", "career" in the private domain. That's about it. - Separate work and private notebooks (that's all of them). I try to keep filing effort to a minimum, and it works out pretty well so far. I keep stuff related to doing my current job in the work notebook (personal minutes, templates, etc.). General stuff about my line of work goes into the private notebook, tagged "career". - Inserting tag-like keywords in the body or title of the note. In my language, even complex terms are often spelled together (income tax would be one word, like "incometax"). Evernote refuses to find such a note by searching for "tax". That's why I tend to add a few redundant keywords to the note to make it easier to find when using alternative search terms. E.g., I would add keywords like "tax, IRS, return, form". Didn't work: - Work-related GTD Contexts in Evernote. There's just too much change going on too often. At the end of the first year, I ended up just deleting about 70% of the todos after they were made obsolete through some other developments. Any effort managing them was simply wasted. - GTD Tickler tags in Evernote. I just didn't look at them when I should have. I'll use Evernote reminders for this now (hooray!) - Convincing my spouse to use Evernote. Well, my spouse appreciates the availability of information, but just prefers to remember things the old-fashioned way. At least Evernote makes it easier for me to act as the secretary of the household, I guess... ;-) ---------- So, all-in-all, it's a success story! One topic that's becoming more and more relevant is that the precision/recall ratio is getting worse. I'm getting more and more false positives on searches. But that's mostly because I'm simply too lazy to select the correct notebook or to filter for things like type of note (such as "received" vs. "reference") or a particular time span. I blame google for that lazyness. :-)

    You didn't state your operating system, Evernote Client, MS Office version nor whether you have all the pictures in one note or spread across several notes (i.e. whether you actually want one slide per note). So the following is just a wild guess, and assuming that all pictures are in one note, but maybe it helps nevertheless: I would export all the pictures from the note to a folder, then import them into PowerPoint using one of these options: http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00050_BATCH_IMPORT_images_into_PowerPoint.htm If you have your notes spread about several notes, at least on Mac you can select all those notes, right click and select "Export attachments", then save them to a folder and continue as stated before. If this option isn't available on your Operating System's Evernote client, maybe a detour via HTML export would work.

    iPhone/iPad: Open the green tab called Notebooks, tap Edit, tap the circled caret (right arrow) and edit the name. Mac: Right click the notebook name, choose Notebook Settings..., edit the name.

    Thank you for answer for 2nd. 1st - ctrl-A doesnt work in web-client when i am in trash directory and clicking it to select all..but I think i prefer to just copy exb file and put up with loss of 2 days notes...will wait for support too. Thanks guys a lot ! I am bit more relaxed now... ..and don't forget to do that 'copy exb' thing daily from now on ...

    Hi Jeffrey, I understand your hunger for the new reminder feature in EN Win. I am just as impatient and eager to use it. But as B+F said, it is good business principle to roll out things when they ARE ready and not when they are only half baked. As you will surely know, there are tons of "Software Betas" out there that are not useable and/or do have serious flaws and glitches. EN wants to avoid that (as much as possible) and therefore a more cautious approach has been chosen where solidity comes before speed.

    Could you give a few examples/workflows where you need to refer to the title after you've scrolled down? Thus far, we are hoping that users can quickly hit the "i" in order to bring up the Note Title and other metadata. Sure. When I have a few notes open and a couple of them are long notes, and I am adding something to the end of one of the long notes. If I go to another program, like Chrome or Word or SQL Server Management Studio, and then back to my EN notes, I cannot tell from the top of the window which note is which. Try it yourself, you'll see. Create 3 notes. Paste in some long test from the Wikipedia (for example) in each one. Scroll to the bottom of them. Go to Chrome or some other program. Go back to you EN windows. Hard to tell which is which. If you use ALT+TAB, its in the windows switching dialog, but if you're using a mouse you have to scroll up to see which title is which. That's a problem. You should be able to glance at the note window and know immediately by seeing the title what note you are looking at, regardless of how far down you have scrolled. Thanks.

    From a UI perspective I think it's more disruptive that inserting an image or other attachment into a note in a desktop client means that you can no longer select all and encrypt. It's perhaps a lazy way to indicate to the user that the attachment won't be encrypted. Instead it might be nice for select all to just select all the encrypt able text, and use some other indicator for the attachment issue.
