  1. Hi, Please ignore this post, I have worked out how to get it back to normal. Blackrat
  2. Sorry guys, the new design is awful and seems to be getting worse with each update. For goodness sake inject some colour back into EN! Take the views of the customers and their experience into consideration or they will be voting with their feet. Blackrat
  3. Hi, Just uploaded this release and my notebooks have turned into a list! I have gone through the menus but can't see how to return notebooks to its previous folder style appearance. My notes are all still available and in the previous format (card view). Please tell me this isn't a new look and I can revert things back to how they were. Thanks, Blackrat
  4. I don't know if it was a specific problem with my copy on an IPad 1, but a left and right arrow have appeared on the top of each page to allow page turning. These definitely weren't there before I wrote this. Anyway problem solved. Cheers, BR
  5. Hi, I have come back to penultimate after a long absence. I'm sure there used to be a way of turning back pages. Currently you can add a new page and go forward but how do you go back to previous page without having to go into notebook view? I would be grateful for any help with this simple function. I should just mention that I have an Ipad1 Thanks
  6. Hi Joe, Thanks for the reply. I guess quite simply we all wish there was a way of organising files in Skitch rather than have to have them in one big cluttered window. I really like Skitch and find it really useful as a mature student. I can create study notes really quickly and the index of annotations that appears in Evernote is fantastic and very important to me as a quick reference and revision tool. While the mark-up options are good in Evernote, practical and workman like, the user experience in Skitch is much better and it produces the all important index of annotations in EN which EN on its own doesn't. Thank you for a really great product, for me the one thing that would make it perfect would be to have a way of organising files. Kind regards, Stuart
  7. Hi Q, Nope no further, sorry. I have just checked out the latest update for OSX and a few tweaks but really nothing new. BR
  8. Could you use Skitch to do the same thing? I use Skitch to make notes on very, very long PDF's. When synced with my EN account it shows the notes first followed by the document (in EN that is). You can of course add annotations to the text. Cheers, BR
  9. Hi, Is there a way of organising notes in Skitch? I have a premium Evernote account with a folder names Skitch and initially all my skitch documents are synched in there. Later I may move the document to a more relevant folder in Evernote but the problem (for me) is that within Skitch all my files remain in one big place. Ideally what I would like to do is mark up my document in Skitch and have it synced with my Skitch folder in Evernote. Move that marked-up document to a more relevant folder in Evernote and then delete it in Skitch without the document deleting in Evernote, leaving my Skitch window nice and clear. Failing that, have folders in Skitch so that I can organise my documents there so that they are not all in one big place. The Skitch notes I have get used for about six months and then aren't required although I still need them for occasional reference. Having all my notes in Skitch in one big window seems cluttered to me. I tend to use Skitch to read my Skitch notes rather than Evernote, I suppose one solution would be to use Evernote to read them and ignore Skitch apart from during the marking up process. I would be grateful for any thoughts or feedback. Stuart
  10. Hi, Quick question..... When I upload pdfs to notes and later (1 or 2hrs) I check in the info section, the pdf shows as not being indexed and yet it seems to be searchable. Are these two different things? I have a premium account. Cheers, Blackrat
  11. Hi Boodles, I like it, much simpler. I have changed my system to yours, thanks Blackrat
  12. Hi, My first post, but rather than start with a question I thought I would share a solution I have found. Like many I don't have an Evernote specific scanner, my scanner software Canon MP Navigator required me to scan a document to my computer first but was able to open the document using Evernote. To start with I was scanning documents to my desktop while they were opened by Evernote. This was ok because the notes were saved to Evernote as well as my computer but it did mean I was left with a bunch of documents on my desktop that I then had to move to Trash (I never wanted to save the documents on my computer only Evernote). What I wanted to do was save the documents to Trash as well as have them opened by Evernote but you can't do this because you cant save to Trash. So my solution..... I made a folder on my desktop called inbox, I then created a routine using Automator to empty whatever was found in "inbox" immediately to Trash. I then told my scanner software to save the document to "inbox" as well as open it using Evernote. 1) When you run Automator, select the Folder Action option. 2) In the Library in the far left click on "Files & Folders" 3) From the next column drag and drop "Get Folder Contents" and "Move Finder Items to Trash" into the free area in your Workflow window. 4) In the "Get Folder Contents" window, click the "Repeat for each subfolder found" checkbox. 5) At the top of the Workflow window is a pop-up (currently showing "Choose folder"). In the pop-up select "Other..." and then locate the folder you created in my case "inbox". 6) Now Save your folder action (Command-S) and you will be prompted to give it a name, say "self emptying folder". You can now quit Automator. Locate your "inbox" or whatever you called it and right-click on it to bring up the contextual menu. From the menu select "Services" and "Folder Actions Setup…" A list of folder scripts should appear. Select the one you created (the name will end in .workflow) and click "Attach". Your "self emptying folder" should appear in the left column with your script/workflow in the right column. Now click (to checkmark) the "Enable Folder Actions" box, then close the window. That should be it. You can test it by dropping something (a file or folder) onto/into your "self emptying folder" and it should automatically go straight into the trash. I hope this helps someone else, for me it works very well. Cheers, Blackrat
