  1. Hello all, We are currently aware of the problem and the team is looking into as we speak. More details to come once available. Thanks @Megan N

  2. I downloaded the new WEB ui for Chromium Browser. I use it to manage my information and data through tagging. The old UI gave an easy overview and quick access to different. I have an extensive GTD working zone where I jump from project to project and keep track of my things to do. With the new WEB UI this becomes hugely impossible. Can I restore the old version please. I wrestled with it this whole morning and I am kind of fed up with it. This new UI, based on Tablets and Android.... , is very very bad . The key is "manage" your notes. Not "Enterring data". Managing notes is managing knowledge. I really really want the old thing back. M.

  3. I work in Corporate America. I invest in real estate on the side. I am married with no kids. I am quite OCD, especially about organization. I have spent countless hours researching how other people use Evernote to 'remember everything' and 'get things done'. I have spent significantly more hours setting up this system than I have saved using this system. Hopefully that will change. Anyway, I wanted to share how I organize Evernote, which is really just The Secret Weapon (TSW) slightly tweaked for my personal needs. This system, in my opinion, limits decisions points (i.e., where should I put this note and how should it be tagged?), effectively tracks action items through to completion, and allows me to save and organize everything else. I will try to keep this explanation clear and concise; here it goes... Limited number of notebooks. I have four: !inbox - Everyone seems to have this one down. This is my default notebook where all notes start before being filed and tagged. Work and personal emails, webclips, random notes and ideas, etc. Case in point, I am writing this in a note that is currently in my !Inbox folder. Action Items (2) - This is a notebook stack for my notes that require action. There are two notebooks inside: Open and Complete. I'm sure you can guess what's in each. Cabinet - Essentially, this is a notebook for all notes that don't require action. I put meeting notes, receipts, webclips, etc. in this notebook. Contextual TaggingI only use tags for context. The tags answer where, when, and what. where - All notes get a where tag. This answers what part of my life the note pertains to (e.g., @work, @home) when - All Open Action Item notes get a when tag. This is how I prioritize notes requiring action. Each of these tags are mutually exclusive. Once the Open Action Item is completed, I remove the when tag and move the note to the Complete notebook. Below is a description of each when tag: what - I use this tag for notes that go in the Cabinet folder. It helps me quickly find things like receipts, meeting minutes, templates, webclips, etc. Not all notes in the Cabinet get a what tag, but many do. 1-now - get it done today / tomorrow 2-next - get it done this week 3-later - get it done within two to four weeks 4-someday - get it done someday 5-waiting - getting it done is dependent on action by someone else (e.g., you are waiting for someone to reply to your email) TSW recommends a who context as well, but for me that was spiraling out of control quickly, so I nixed it. If a note is associated with a certain person, I usually just try to make sure their name is included in the note itself. Here is a screenshot of my system: I hope this helps at least one person out there!

  4. Hello! First time posting here... I've been using Evernote for more than 3 years now, I've became a paying customer after a promotion from Dell, been using and paying the Premium subscription since then. This change in policy, how it was worded in the new EULA is too vague and concerning, for those of us who store personal information on Evernote, even more for those who store corporate information. We pay for your services, mainly because the product is awesome, but also because we don't want to be the product. When you use a "free" software to store, share or analyze information you're in turn sharing the data with the developer so they can profit on it, using Gmail or Facebook, we all know that, free in this case just means you are giving something in return that is not money. Now, this Machine Learning and other "Needed access" should be an "Opt-In" choice, period. We are paying you to use the application and store the data. With most big companies these days, the only way to send a message is hurting the income/sales, so if this is not changed, I'll not renew my subscription next year and move to a private and open source cloud solution. I hope more people see the concerns and do the same. Really disappointed.

  5. Hi, Some of my clips started taking ages. I noticed I can't access them via my app either as it has not synced with the cloud yet. I had my clipper set to clip locally to the app on my windows desktop to prevent these issues, but it seems that option has now gone away and it can only sync to the cloud? If this is the case, then I have to provide the feedback that this choice is very bad. Clipping large web documents for example can take minutes to the cloud, seconds to local storage, where the sync can happen nicely in the background. In addition, I rarely use evernote web, prefering the local app to do my work. What I just clipped is not in the app until after a sync, which is another inconvenience. If it is possible to change this, please let me know.

  8. I guess I should mention in terms of a current workaround... Given the current Windows client behavior of making the top-sorted Business notebook the de facto default, if everyone in your company wanted the same default Business notebook, you could put a special character like a + as the first character of that notebook's name, which would cause it to sort to the top of the notebooks list and thus become the "default". However, I don't think that's going to work in your case, where your Sales team wants one default and your Technical team wants another default. The only way it could work in that scenario is if the Sales team's desired default notebook was not shared at all with the Technical people, and vice versa - that way each team could prepend a + to their desired default and thus each have its own "top-listed notebook".

  9. I have been summoned by the great and powerful Gaz... The Evernote Windows client does not currently allow you to set a default Business notebook. More specifically, it currently acts such that the first-alphabetically-listed notebook is sort of the default notebook, in that a new note not created in another specific notebook will get put into that top-listed notebook. But I don't believe that's by design, I think it just happens to work that way currently. All of the other major Evernote clients - Mac, iOS and Android - DO allow you to set a default Business notebook. And that capability was just recently added added to the Mac client, which leads me to believe that they will be adding this capability to the Windows client at some point, hopefully soon (though I don't have any inside info on that).

  10. Hello, I am the main developper of evernote2anki and reached this discussion by chance (I was googling for other things related to spaced repetion). The project has been improved and renamed as anknotes. The repository for the anki plugin is here : https://github.com/brumar/anknotes . To get it work you just have to put the files in your anki addons folder and add your settings by reaching a submenu that has been created within anki. If you are a Mac user, you should look at this nice fork : https://github.com/rbuc/Evernote2AnkiMac PS : I did not re-tested the plugin recently, so if you find any bug, please let me know. Cheers !

  11. Yes, I copied all of it to notepad on a computer, then re-copied and pasted without the formatting in a new note to test; same thing.

  12. Hmmn. Have you tried (if it's possible to do this) Simplify or Remove Formatting on the content? Just thinking that if this data is copied from another online source there may be something there besides actual text. -Granny, eggs I know but if you decide to try this you might want to use a copy note...

  13. I am constantly in one Notebook looking at a note/s, while wanting to open another Notebook without losing the focus of where I am. I'd really like to see an "open in new window" command when I right click on a notebook. Thank You

  14. Right-click on the Note Panel (displayed note), then copy and paste to your desktop. Print your note from there and it will have its original margins.

  15. @Leo Gong thanks so much for this candid and in depth response! It really helps us see the bigger picture from Evernote's perspective and provides context that helps us give feedback that is actually helpful. Hopefully, the team will be able to address some of our broken workflows while maintaining the vision for separating personal and business, which I can relate to. I run my own research lab so I'm the "owner" of my small Evernote business. I'm not sure that the separation will actually help my team keep their business stuff out of personal notebooks, but it is worth a shot. Thanks again for the explanation.

  16. Thanks everyone for the feedback. We understand that this is a pretty big change for some of our EB users, which is exactly why we hoped to solicit your feedback. We'll be working through it to make adjustments before we release this to the public. A few things I'd like to chime in on: @handythinks, @asnook (and others) asked "Why are we doing this?" tldr; In the short term: Clarify Ownership of Data: notes in business notebooks are owned by the business; that has important implications; we do not make the separation clear enough today for users to make the right distinction between where their notes will be/should be placed. In the longer term: Separation allows for better business admin controls, and features such as business only accounts. Examples: If you were to place your personal receipts, or financial documents, or social security number in a business notebook, then they would belong to your business and stay with them even when you leave the company. This is not good for the user. On the flip side - many businesses ask that we help keep business-related notes in business notebooks, so that they can retain ownership even if the employee leaves. From their point of view - that's a bare minimum for paying for the service in the first place. We believe this is a very reasonable expectation. They also have asked for additional abilities to control what users do with content in a business account in the future. What's wrong with things today? The current app doesn't do a great job of helping users to understand when they're in a business vs personal notebook. Allowing access to both contexts (from search results, shortcuts, etc.) is great for efficiency, but not great for communicating where you are. As a result, users often put business content in personal notebooks, and personal content in business notebooks. A common example we see (and that I have been guilty of): treating personal notebooks as business-related notebooks I don't want to give everyone in my company access to, and treating business notebooks as business-related notebooks I'd give everyone access to. This will be a continuous project that we'll be working to get better at. This behavior is not what we intended - users keep their personal notebooks when they leave a business; a business will want to know they're retaining your work product - those should always live in business notebooks, not personal notebooks. What do these changes allow for in the future? We are committed to building out stronger business features that allow businesses to have more visibility and control over the content and its distribution in their Business notebooks. We want to really help clarify when you're in Business vs Personal, so that when we introduce additional admin features, you aren't still mistakenly putting your personal content in Business notebooks - because it would be a worse experience for the user then. Business only accounts is also a commonly requested feature (many business owners from all business sizes are puzzled by why a personal account is linked to a business account they are paying for, that they have no rights of data ownership to). This design puts us in a place to implement that in the future. Did we go too far and harm some workflows? We expect that in this transition, users will see some harm done to some workflows - particularly users who have not historically split their data very cleanly between business and personal notebooks, and thus tend to frequently work in both contexts simultaneously. This forum post seeks to understand the broken workflows - thank you for the feedback so far. As @SoftwareMarcus pointed out, feedback on how your workflow was negatively impacted and the seriousness of the impact is very helpful for us. I won't summarize what many of you, and @Chantal Leonard have already summarized - but please keep the feedback coming. Last thoughts: In some cases, we may still knowingly release changes that still harm your workflows. In many/most cases it just means that a fix is coming, but it didn't make it into that release. Your feedback helps us prioritize what must come now, vs later. In terms of implementing an option to toggle the split vs "keep things as they are" - we'll be discussing this internally. However, generally I find that doing this doesn't actually address issues with the "new option" - why fix problems with a new implementation if you can just let your users keep the old one? This usually leads to bloatware that becomes difficult to use, and even more difficult to improve on, since you'd have to start supporting more and more versions of the same product. I'd very much like to avoid that, even if it does mean that we need to make some product tradeoffs. Please keep the feedback coming!

  18. Another vote for multi-page continuous PDF display in Windows. I use Evernote on Mac and PC. PC version behaving like Mac version in this respect would be great.

  19. This usually only pops up on new sites. For example, the first time signing into outlook, it has a notification saying it supports outlook mail clipping. First time on gmail, it let's me know that it supports gmail clipping. This is annoying, and every time that popup appears, I instantly x it out without bothering to read it. It was really starting to drive me crazy on pdfs. Every time I load a pdf in the browser, I am reminded "Did you know you can clip pdfs directly to Evernote?" But there is a solution!! Once I signed into the web clipper addon and told it to keep me logged in for 30 days, the pdf reminder went away. 1. This is a bad solution, because I like to log out of things. 2. This is a bad solution, because it only works for 30 days at a time. 3. A better solution would be to send me an email once that told me all the features. If I want to know advanced tips, I can refer back to the email, look it up the website, or discover them on my own. 4. Popup = spam. I don't care what's in the popup, the 'x' in the corner is the only thing I look at. Do not make me look at popups!

  20. Hello Penultimate Users, I am a passionate Evernote user and have recently decided to use Penultimate for my notes from now on since I am not satisfied with the note taking features of Evernote. Accordingly, I installed Penultimate, synced it with Evernote and found a missing feature: As far as I am concerned, it is not possible to transfer available notebooks from Evernote to Penultimate so that I can start adding notes. Is this correct? To me it seems like I can only create new notebooks in Penultimate which can then be synced with Evernote. Another independent question: When taking notes with my Apple Pencil in the Evernote App, is there a convenient way to jump to a new blank page? Thanks for your support. Greg

  21. This is so stupid guys. When you create a POPUP of useful content -- Thanks. Make it "remember" not to do it everytime though. That is what EVERYONE does and you all are not. What you are doing is SPAMMING us with your "useful" information. Was useful once, not hundreds of times. Second, really, you want us to be more specific? How many annoying popups do you have? It is the EVernote Web Clipper that pops up on every new window. STOP IT. I've pressed the X to close, the Try it out. No matter what it always pops up. I do demos and do not need to have your spam on my machine. I've had to disable the "useful" plugin because of this.

  22. well, i just turned it off. i'm getting the entire page ad to use web clipper EVERYTIME I open my chrome browser. then i also get the little popup warnings from time to time in the upper right hand corner. I AM A PAID PRO MEMBER but I'm turning this off. It did NOT do this a few weeks ago. Please send me an email when it's fixed, and put my subscription on hold so that no time is used until this is fixed. Thanks,

  26. Add my voice the choir of very frustrated, very unhappy Web Clipper users. Every time it seems like I've gotten through the worst of the pop-ups, they return with a vengeance and the nagging starts all over again. It is not helpful. This is not "cluing me in" to a new, undiscovered feature. I use this feature regularly. I know how it works. I know it has special features on specific sites. Stop telling me the same things over and over again in the most intrusive manner possible! I really do like the Evernote suite of products. They're great. But I agree with previous posters: this is getting out of control. Evernote has become like a virtual kudzu vine, growing into places where you'd rather it didn't. Toning down Web Clipper would be an excellent start, but the initial responses to the first poster on this thread suggest that, for some unfathomable reason, Evernote is both tone deaf to its customer feedback and blind to how far other note-taking applications have advanced. Have you seen the new Notes application in El Capitan? It has features Evernote lacks, like the ability to spontaneously add free-form sketches without opening a second application. THAT is useful. Nagware is not. My subscription is due to renew in February. If I see three more pop-ups in that time, I'm cancelling my subscription and exporting my notes to Notability, Apple Notes or (gods help me) OneNote. I've had enough. I'm a paying customer, and you're treating me like some freemium mooch. Bad idea. Evernote simply isn't innovating fast enough to merit that kind of behavior, and your product certainly doesn't surpass others by a sufficient margin to feel so comfortable about your market position. Tick tock. Fix it or lose my money. You aren't cheap, either, so I won't shed too many tears if you remain complacent. I could pay for two or three cloud services for the price of yours.

  27. 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! Philip A

  28. No argument here. As I mentioned, my method is essentially TSW. I love seeing exactly how other people use Evernote, even down the specific verbiage used and ordering of stacks, notebooks, and tags. Thus, I shared exactly how I use Evernote.
