    I am someone who doesn't want to show my annotation summary after annotating a PDF document, however whenever I make an annotation, the [ ] Show Annotation Summary option is automatically checked and I need to remember to un-tick it before closing the annotation window. Is it possible to turn this option off by default or at least remember the last setting? So, if I turned it off for one document, next document would remember it is off by default? Thanks Phil

    Is that not exactly what this discussion is about? Isn't under-the-hood stuff the very stuff that is inherently more complicated than opening the drivers' side door and pressing the accelerator? Isn't under-the-hood stuff more advanced and often times the "kind of thing you might read on a linux forum"? (Sorry that quote is from a different user but I think captures the prevailing tone of resistance throughout this topic). Ultimately what I am seeing here is users complaining about the HTML export because it means that you have text files filled with HTML in one place, and the attachments referenced in those text files in another (conventionality located and very obviously named) location. But what would a suitable, universally acceptable alternative be that wouldn't prevent future modification of your data and wouldn't corrupt other types of data? It is OBVIOUS that most people's Evernote contents would not all be suitable to be converted to PDFs. How on earth would you create a PDF of a note that itself contains a PDF or .docx file? How would you create a .docx file that itself contains a PDF or .xlsx file? Or which doesn't conform to a relatively standard set of page dimensions? Or which contains formatting that is not interpretable by a word processor? Perhaps Evernote should dynamically decide what format a given note should be exported in based on the note contents. This would be a feat of software development. If you offered these options, you would end up with users exporting using one of these formats and subsequently losing lots of data. There's a pain point if I've ever seen one. Can you imagine if you exported your data as word documents and all of your attachments were... where? at best they'd be where they are placed with existing export methods, in a directory conveniently named after the note to which the attachment was originally attached. So that isn't really much of an improvement and now you are stuck with a .docx file which is hardly portable. PDF may be slightly better in terms of portability, but you'd still have the attachment dilemma, and now your note contents are all completely un-modifiable! What about tags? neither PDF nor .docx have provisions for metadata such as tags. WHAT ELSE MAKES SENSE? As I see it, PDF and .doc (and .rft and .txt) all pose other, serious problems, and hardly address the other concerns mentioned here (such as the location of attachments upon export ). I agree that HTML is a bit of a pain in the butt in some respects. Indeed looking at the bare HTML code is a bit overwhelming. That being said, HTML means that your attachments can be directly referenced within the HTML text so your attachment and note are nicely linked. HTML means that no matter what the contents of the note were, they can be accurately reproduced without serious corruption, distortion, or loss. HTML means that you have lost NO data. Your tags are preserved, your formatting preserved, the location of your attachment preserved, everything is present in the HTML export. This is critical if you intend to rebuild your note database somewhere else. If someone is planning on undertaking a significant task like relocating an entire Evernote database into some other location, getting a little greasy under the hood is just part of due diligence. Like doing your own oil change, it is a chore, it is messy, and car manufacturers haven't made it as easy as flicking a switch. That's the way it works. HTML is a bit tough, but the "simple" solutions are impractical and incomplete, and will lead to data loss. Things are sometimes a bit challenging for very good reason, as is discussed in great detail throughout this thread.

    Simple. I've been developing software since before DOS had directories, and have trawled through more directory trees than a pulp fiction detective has been through low-rent dives. Traipsing up and down directory trees to find that one file is boring, but it can be a lot easier if I can narrow the search space somehow. In terms of Evernote, most of the time I don't care all that much which notebook something is stored in, and in fact, I keep my notebook collection down to a minimum as much as possible (exceptions are made mostly for purposes of sharing and offline availability in mobile Evernote clients, for which cases you must use notebooks). I'll do some simple tagging up front, and let Evernote do the heavy lifting up front. If I can't find what I'm looking for right away, and am pretty sure that it's in there somewhere, then yes, a more in-depth examination wold be necessary, but why would I go to the trouble of building up and maintaining an elaborate folder / tag structure when most of the time I don't need it? I have no idea what relevance my age would have to do with anything.

    As has been pointed out MANY times in this thread, no it's not. And even Word can edit HTML.

    Vance . . . . seriously . . . .this is just . . . . bizarre. You are venting your frustration. . . . . ok . .. . I get that. That's your point. That's your real point. You're venting. . . . this is sort of how it comes across to me . . . . .you say, . .. "I get it. I get it. It does wonderful things, but all I want to do is drive it to the corner store to pick up milk and bread, like probably most everyone else that uses their NASA Delta III liquid hydrogen second stage Rocket. . . we now understand that its purpose is for deep space exploration and expanding the outer limits of human knowledge, that doesn't mean we have to LIKE it. I'm not saying NASA should supply reverse lights on it for when we back out of the parking spot after buying our lotto tickets, I am just objecting to this idea that somehow Interplanetary Space Travel is somehow as useful and convenient as an end product for individual convenience store shoppers" Vance . . . .We agree with you. . . . . the use you are using it for is not useful and convenient for your use -- a folder system We agree Now if you will excuse me, I need to get some cat food and I am at T-Minus 47 and counting.

    I'm a developer and I love my code snippets libraries. However, my snippets are all over the place -- in local files, in Dropbox, in Google Drive, on Github, on USB thumb drives, etc. It's a chore keeping up with them. I've used some code library apps on OS X and Windows. They're ok. Some of them even backup to cloud services. None of the good ones are cross-platform though, so you end up using the app on one system, but rewriting files on the other. This seems silly to me. I'd like to use Evernote as a code snippets library because I use Evernote everywhere. It already has all the features I would want. I could tag my snippets, keep them in folders, search my library, share my snippets and access them everywhere. The only thing missing are the most important features: Auto-formatting and Syntax Highlighting. There are plenty of open-source tools for doing this on the web. SyntaxHighlighter by Alex Gorbatchev is one of them. Even this forum has very basic support for embedding code into a note. See? <div id="example" class="code"><p>Some not-so-beautifully formatted code. But it's a start.</p></div> The most practical implementation would be a button somewhere in the editor. Maybe next to the highlighter icon, or include it in the Justification drop-down. In any case, please consider it because it would be amazing.

    I know some will disagree with me, but, IMO, Tags don't really organize your info, like a Table of Contents or Chapter might do. To me, Tags are like the index in a book/document -- they help you identify all occurrences of that term in your book (or Evernote account). But reading book/document in order of the index wouldn't be very useful. If you were going to do research for a specific book, or for a specific project, then Stacks/Notebooks could be useful, where the Stack is the Book (or Project) name, and each NB in the stack is a Section/Chapter/Top-Level task. Tags could then be used that cut across all books/projects. While you could model the Book or Project with Tag names, the benefit of using Stacks/NB in this case is: Allows you to share a specific Book/Project with others on your team Allows you to easily see the relationships in the Left Panel Allows you to filter notes to exactly a specific Book/Project, whereas tags might pull in Notes from non-related notes. Allows you to browse a Book/Project in a more meaningful order
