  1. Hi, I find myself often doing this 6 Step dance to send and archive documents that require a signature: Dance Step 1: I get the document via Email, either as Word or PDF Document Dance Step 2: I print it Dance Step 3: I sign the paper version Dance Step 4: I scan the paper version with the Evernote App Dance Step 5: I drag the PNGs out of Evernote Dance Step 6: I create a PDF and send that out One notices: this file starts and ends with a PDF. Why on earth do I need to go through two other medium (paper and image) just to get it back to PDF? Does anyone know a better way??? Thanks Petra
  2. Same here. First time in I don't even know how many years, I have to think about what else to use instead of Evernote. This software is like an extension of my body, or like a room in my house. Makes me dizzy thinking I have to change it. Why did they do that?
  3. There is no checkbox of this kind in my preferences / software update. (I'm a premium user and not part of a business account). Are premium users also excluded from the option to change back?
  4. Same here, long time, dedicated, paying Evernote user and super disappinted about the new notebook view for all the reason people have described here in detail. Very unfortunate if something like this is done without "manners" (user testing, giving choices to go back, informing about this change ahead of time etc) Seems like trouble is ahead with this company. Have started to check out Zoho Notebook to use it in parallel for a while, as an exit strategy. I' so loayal to Evernote, it will break my little digital heart if I have to leave, but what can you do if the dark side takes over.
  5. Oh, come on, that's like saying I'm going to forever stick with my motorcycle because I couldn't figure out the car in a day. I think 1Password and LastPass are the two top rivals in the password protection market segment, the first being geared towards the visual people, the other more 'normal' looking. They are not the leaders out of coincidence, but because the features are essential to the modern day site nomad. And actually they are not that difficult to master, seriously. If you know how to klick and type, you know how to add a passwords. It's icons on shelves and you click on them and assign username/pass. Come on, it doesn't get simpler than that. I think you just didn't give it enough time because you prefer to stick with what you know, fair enough. Whatever floats your bike, ah, boat.
  6. Wouldn't you be able to achieve the same result by adding the tags "site" and "popClip", for example into the search field like such: tag: site + tag:popClip (that would require that the notes be taged with "site" and "popClip" as separate tags, of course) That way you wouldn't have to repeat the "site:" or "product:" part of the tag all the time, and you'd get an alphabetized overview on that new tags page, instead of everything appearing either under s or under p. Or is there another difference that I'm not seeing right now?
  7. Hm, I use 1password for logins. Link archival software it usually not good at password archival and vice versa. If you use Evernote just for the links to the sites, and then let a good password software (1password, LastPass etc) with browser plugin do the login part, you get the best of both worlds. Workflow for the link nut stash: ---------------------------------------- Step 1) make screenshot of just the logo on a site. E.g. the free screen capture app in applications/utilities on the Mac lets me use a shortcut to switch to drawing mode to use my mouse to draw a free rectangle anywhere on the monitor to 'take a picture' of. The app then makes a new doc with that screen capture snippet which I could save as tiff if I wanted to, but I don't want to, because I don't need to, because Step 2) copy and paste from the screen capture app to Evernote puts the screen capture snippet right into the Evernote note (no need for making a JPG. At least on the Mac it pastes nicely in). Step 3 (for Retina) The new Mac Book Retina now makes these huge screenshots so there is a new step 3 to hammer the picture down to smaller size: - cmd-n & cmd-v in Photoshop pastes it into a new doc. Then cmd-i, tab tab to change the resolution from 144 to 72 - then again select all, copy and paste, this time from Photoshop to Evernote, again, no need to save a JPG. Step 4 (or Step 3 for non-Retina people) In Evernote, select the image, cmd-k to add a link Voila. Sis is all. Parfait. 2 Extras for the visual people: - an empty space between each logo makes it neater. And of course it has a usability benefit: you can then squeeze your cursor in between them easier to select one for deleting or moving etc. - needless to say that if you don't add line breaks, the logo stash reformats with changing the width of the note window. (A poor man's version of a fluid layout) In moments of reoccurring insanity, I keep thinking about bringing all logos to the same width and height, but I do have a life to life, unfortunately, so had to drop that idea. Probably takes about 20-30 sec for saving a link like this. With links one only needs temporarily, just copy pasting the URL is the more sensible option of course. No need to get all fancy and visual with those. This is crazy enough as it is.
  8. I'm wondering, if you collect bookmarks like some busy squirrels the nuts, maybe it's time to stop for a second and think whether you will really ever find or use that bookmark again. Maybe it's just one of those moments where one is too lazy to save whatever information morsel caught one's attention. It's so much easier to burry the whole site url somewhere instead. Something to try: when saving a bookmark, either put it into the "general nuts" pile, or add it to a topic pile of a subject that really concern you and your life and that you will definitely return to. That should probably be not more than around 20 nut piles. Everything else would be just plain nuts. Because as we squirrels know, you will never find those others again anyway. Here is my IA nut pile (it's a note in Evernote tagged links and ia): Yea, all right, I make a screenshot of the logo and then paste it into a note and link it. Might sound like a lot of work, but then again, this way I remember the URL a lot better and if I go there more than around three times, I've already saved those 30 seconds of creating the image link, just because I -know where it is -find it instantly -and a click takes me to the real site in a real browser Now you
  9. Well, just for the sake of completeness, nobody mentioned delicious.com. Wonder why. Did everyone just abandon this site after the sale and redesign? Okay, it's not as good any more as it used to be, but bookmark adding and tagging works great. Which other site lets you create bookmark bundles?
  10. That's a great tip. Am going to implement that with my tags! Just one question though: the colon you set after the prefix, is that just for visual identification? Or does it change anything else related to search or find-ability? If not, wouldn't the space between the prefix and the first word be enough? Thanks!
