    I think what you mean is: Tools >> Options. If that's not it, what are you trying to accomplish?

    Still not getting a 2nd search to work, Evernote 5.8.1 on Android 4.4.2 on Moto X, although I'm pretty sure the Android version and phone have absolutely nothing to do with it. At least the "backing out" workaround seems to take care of it for me fairly consistently. Setting aside this issue, it is interesting how the notion of a "shortcut" seems not to have at all sunk in with those designing the Android UI.

    Wow! I'm not sure that I could even identify 1,000 movies that I like, much less buy the DVD! You have an extensive and expensive collection my friend. Maybe some day it will be worth millions to some avid collector. I once collected CDs, DVDs, Blu-Rays, but now I'm comfortable with maintaining everything online (except for my music, which I have both online (Apple iCloud) and locally (Mac and iPhone)). Sorry for the off-topic post. And now, back to your regular program. :-)

    100% agree with this post. Evernote has great sync, but the basic note-taking features are crippled (in an app designed to take notes!!). I've begged for simple styles in the past -- nothing fancy, just a way to apply a bunch of formatting using a single click (I'm not even worried that it should remember the style). Do we get anything like that? Nope, we get Evernote pens, and t-shirts, and EN Food. This is a company that seems to have lost direction. The lack of editing and confused approach to tags has made me give up on EN. I'm dumping my Premium sub and moving to other tools that work professionally, even at the expense of losing some cross-device syncing.

    Maybe I just don't understand the issue. The post-clip dialogue disappears when you click on the web page or press esc. That doesn't seem terribly intrusive to me. In fact, quite likely after clipping, I'll be click somewhere on the page or browser window anyway as a natural part of my workflow, which would then dismiss the post-clip dialogue. That is, the post-clip dialogue sticks around as a way of confirming to me that the clip occurred, and is dismissed as soon as I do what naturally comes next in my workflow: navigating away from the page I just clipped. As such, I'm not clear how this can significantly impact workflow. There are also a two issues that are being conflated here. 1) Related notes/"other clips from this website" are not a marketing things, they are a feature that permeates many parts of Evernote. They can also be disabled, yes, in the clipper too. I personally like these because it helps me see that I've clipped something similar, or in some cases, the exact same thing, so I can go clean up immediately. 2) Tips is perhaps much more accurately described as marketing. I am a premium subscriber and I have only ever seen that segment of the clipper pop up once in a couple of years. Seeing that dialogue once was really nothing that made me lose my cool, however I'd rather not be nagged to invite friends at all as a premium subscriber. While, as far as I can tell, this cannot be disabled, it seems like after one prompt, you get left alone. This isn't the greatest of crimes. The issue of related notes cannot lumped in with the issue of "tips" not the least because related notes can be disabled and is not marketing, while "tips" cannot be disabled (though they only appear once in my experience), and essentially could be understood as marketing. These are two separate issues/features/annoyances/whatevers.

    Are you sure you can't? From the Evernote Search Grammar page:

    I suspect the word wrapping is you are having is because Evernote doesn't have any real margins like word processors do. When a word processor breaks a line it breaks because it hits the margin. If you copy that into a marginless world like Evernote, either the line will refuse to break because of some misinterpreted formatting coding that got copied along from the word processor that won't let it break. Or the line breaks wherever the window happens to arbitrarily end. I don't recommend pasting content from "serious word processors and page layout programs" into evernote if you want that formatting preserved. Evernote is not great at interpreting the myriad (potentially proprietary) ways these things may be encoded. I suspect if you copy/paste content between many of the programs you listed there, you'd also end up with some seriously wonky formatting! If you DO want that formatting preserved, I suggest attaching the .docx/.pages/.psd file to the note as an attachment.

    I have deleted the other four threads you started containing the same content but in other sections. Please do not do this. One thread is sufficient. Unlike bed sheets, thread count does not matter here. Thank you.

    I print notes to PDF all the time from Evernote.

    Funny, because I say the same thing about OneNote Surely, in 2014, software that wishes to be taken seriously should be multi-platform, functional on mobile/tablets, and fast -- none of which fit the bill for OneNote. (Windows app has way more functions than web/Mac, mobile apps severely cut down, and sync is slow). Evernote meets all the above criteria (and I've had no issues on my Android tablet, and it's a Nook HD+, which is generally regarded as a pile of excrement in comparison to... pretty much every other tablet in the market). Also, Evernote is half the price of Office 365.

    Easier than bringing up the file menu and selecting 'Export All Notes'?

    Why not? There are plenty of PDF viewers available; why should Evernote duplicate that functionality ... you can choose whichever viewer works best for you...At least from my perspective, I want an integrated experience. Evernote IS the viewer that would work best for me. For several reasons, the main ones being 1. that I can stay in-app (no unnecessary context switching... which is classic UX "waste") while navigating an entire archive of notes and references in PDF format (100s of documents), 2. that Evernote would natively index the content of said archive of PDF notes to make it instantly searchable across all my devices, and 3. that I would then be able to annotate and otherwise markup the content of PDF documents to make Evernote a true enabler for my academic studies.Regarding duplication of functionality, that's beside the point. No one is suggesting the Evernote team would invest development resources in rewriting (duplicating) a PDF viewer library. Just embed an existing one. The concept here is one of technology reuse and streamlining the user experience rather than the implied negative of duplication. Actually, if you think about it, PDF viewers are rubbish apps anyway. Little more than a *.pdf file association target, I dislike that Adobe Reader even needs an icon on my smartphone. I'm never going to launch it independently. It's only there to respond to the need to open a PDF and only then because I don't have a better app to open it with. Evernote could be that better app.

    I found the problem...I just wasn't renaming the stack properly. In most renaming functions (such as in Windows Explorer) you can right-click, select re-name, enter the name and then click on the folder. The name is saved. However; I found that I needed to hit the enter key for the renaming to save.

    AFAIK, there is no particular "Evernote" advantage to getting a Scansnap. As a scanaholic, I've acquired a fleet of scanners. None are a Scansnap, but I guess I should consider one. Anyway, my MO is to scan to my hard drive b/c I also retain copies of most of the scans on my hard drive. That whole not putting all my eggs in one basket thing. And some scans I put into Dropbox for fast/easy access with my phone, such as doctor/hair appointments. (I put those in my calendar too. But being a bit on the OC side, I like accessing the original b/c there has been at least one time when I typo'd the appointment into my calendar. ) My scanning software asks me what file name I want. I assign a file name that I want my Evernote title to be. Once it's on my hard drive, I copy the file to my Evernote import folder where it gets sucked into Evernote, deleted from the import folder & the Evernote title is the file name. It's really not that cumbersome, IMO. BTW, I still use my flatbed scanner quite a lot for scanning greeting cards I send and receive. "Hello. My name is BurgersNFries and I'm a scanaholic."
