  1. It doesn't really matter if anyone is "right" or not. What matters is how Evernote have decided to implement their application and it seems like a notebook hierarchy is unlikely to ever happen. So, like it or not, you either get on board or you find something else.

  2. My 2c. Early on they made an architectural decision to support the system as it is now (well actually without Stacks, Stacks came later and are a bit of a cheat) and so all the existing legacy code on the server and client sides are set up this way. Adding multiple levels of hierarchy would require I would think a substantial amount of code to be added everywhere, and then tested everywhere each time there is a new release. So, they do an analysis of the what they would add by having this feature and compare it to the cost of implementing it and the cost of maintaining it. And they decide th

  3. <broken record> Or create the structure in the tags. Medical.military Medical.VA Medical.civilian Because the tag is delimited, you can search on either medical or military and the tags are shown in the suggested search results. So my relevant structure framework is viewable, even if I don't have the tag or notebook sidebars taking up display space </broken record> How many tags does that produce? Dunno, stopped caring. I just type a few letters and only see relevant groups at one time. The number of tags, long surpassed my ability to remember all the single

  4. I'm a very visual person, so for me it's easier for me to remember things by how they look than by remembering a tag. Plus I don't have a cluster f*** of tags all over the place. I try to keep my tags simple so they are easily searched. If I know that a certain folder is in a certain place, then it helps me keep things more effectively organized. Searching for tags (set A - subset 1) and so on kind of defeats the purpose of tags. I'd rather have a tag for "medical" and have all my medical documents in different folders under "military", "VA", and "civilian", and then if I want to pull up

  5. All Evernote users are free to use tags and/or notebooks and/or stacks, in whatever combination that they wish. But you cannot use arbitrarily nested notebooks, because they don't exist in Evernote. For that, Evernote would need to implement them, across a number of different applications and their servers, and API (which is used by 3rd-party developers as well). It's more support, more testing, more mode documentation, more complexity all around. It may not be rocket science, but none of this comes for free, either. Seems as though they don't think that it's worth it. See Minus 100 Points for

  6. Well, since neither of us is, or was, part of the Evernote design team, it is all pure conjecture. The quotes from Dave E in the linked topic and others in the forums give a pretty clear indication that they could have chosen to do so. They've had ample opportunity to change their minds since 2008. Good grief, some of the commentary there takes them to task because they *did* have hierarchies in the version 2 product, but didn't keep that feature in later versions. You didn't say anything about it being important to them. Here's what you did say: You're claiming that the Evernote developer

  7. The fact that Evernote has chosen not to offer nestable notebooks is not any kind of evidence that the developers do not think hierarchically. the design of Evernote is something that they chose, explicitly.You can obviously express hierarchies using tags in Evernote; it's just that with tags, you are not stuck with Note X belongs to Category A exclusively (which is what you express when you categorize by notebooks). With tags, note X can belong to category A exclusively, or it can belong to categories A, B, and C. This is very useful, and most humans do it easily, without thinking about it.

  8. I'd like to understand how much of my data is spidered by Evernote in order to make these connections? If I switch context off, are my notes still spidered? Feels like more than a little invasion of privacy.

  9. Thank god I can turn it off. Sorry I don't want my notes read and then content sent to me based on my note taking.

  11. Hi John, I'm looking for this also. There's a trick that works on a Mac; I'm sure Windows would have a similar option: In System Preferences go to Keyboard/Shortcuts Click 'App Shortcuts' Use + to add a Shortcut Select Evernote, type in the exact menu option (ie Add Row Below, Add Row Above etc) and assign a keyboard shortcut to itThis way the shortcut only works in Evernote (no other app) and you can use any shortcut that's not already in use. Here's a screenshot of the settings http://note.io/12x7Oio Good luck! Peter

  12. Hey, I would like to make a feature request for evernote to implement a text collapse, as seen in coding software such as Dreamweaver. The idea is to make it a little bit easier to organise long lists. Simply mark the desired text, collapse it and then you're able to toggle on and off and eventually remove the collapse when you don't need it anymore. Here's a picture I found: http://www.creativepro.com/files/story_images/20050926_expand.jpg It's a really simple feature, but it would make my Evernote life easier!
