About Jan Peeters

  1. Thanks for the info, I understand it. I hope it won't be to long after 6.4 is released though. Thanks.
  2. Some feedback: Regarding the new search behaviour: I like that a lot. The highlighting works better and returning to previous note is really handy. Regarding typography: maybe I'm just seeing this now but it looks like you are using three different typefaces. One in the (recent) notes and notebook column on the left, one for titles of note snippets and one for the note summary. I find this inconsistent and hard on the eyes. Please make everything the same or give people the possibility to define the fonts they want in all parts of the app, not only the notes themselves. I'm als a bit worried that your UI designers all have retina iMacs on their desks because the way anti aliasing is handled on my Macbook Air 11" is far from ideal. Especially the note summary is jaggy. The screenshot looks slightly better then the live text on my screen. Thanks, Jan
  3. Hi @SoftwareMarcus, I quickly tested it on my El Capitan setup but I still have the problem. The URL isn't there when I start in normal mode. If I go into full screen mode and then back to normal mode it comes back. Sometimes I need to resize the window. Hope this helps. Jan
  4. I agree, missing this too. I loved the ability to quickly go back to the source. I understand that you want a clean interface, but please also make this an option then.
  5. It's true that most people don't know or use Markdown, but is it so hard to implement a switch in settings to turn it on? Apps like Desk give you the option to either work WYSIWYG or use Markdown. I think that's would be great.
  6. They switched most of that stuff off as it didn't seem to hit the mark. I believe numbered lists and tables still works but the basic text formatting doesn't. Too bad - I was eagerly waiting for the code blocks Why couldn't we get it with an option maybe to turn it on/off Hi is is indeed not possible. I also would like full Markdown support in Evernote. It beats me why this is not an option. So many text editors implement it these days. This new list thing is half-baked. Maybe this is helpful, it's not the app itself but a way to sync your Markdown with code-block text into Evernote. https://marxi.co/
  7. I think I've discovered a possible Bug. The crashes I'm experiencing are reproducible on my side. My setup is like this: Macbook Pro Retina running OS X 10.11.1 with external screen attached. The situation when Evernote crashes is like follows: I have Evernote open on the external screen. I double-click a note to open it separately. Next I drag the main Evernote window to my MacBooks screen (the single note stays on my attached screen. Evernote crashes. Crashreport can be viewed here: http://pastebin.com/Zw66tYBJ Thanks, Jan
  8. The problem with using the Tags method is that you can't share a Tag. I share Notebooks with collegues and sometimes I want to share with them a note that I have written in one of my personal notebooks. I don't want to copy it because if I ever choose to add something I need to add that text to both notes. I also don't want to move it because then my nicely organized personal notebook devaluates. I would say that you could introduce 'aliase-notes' quite normal in any operating system. Make the title a different colour of italic if you like.
  9. Well I really can't go with using the metaphore of a physical notebook. We're not living in a physical notebook world anymore. Now we have all the splendid capabilities of the digital and virtual. The problem with using the Tags method is that you can't share a Tag. I share Notebooks with collegues and sometimes I want to share with them a note that I have written in one of my personal notebooks. I don't want to copy it because if I ever choose to add something I need to add that text to both notes. I also don't want to move it because then my nicely organized personal notebook devaluates.

  10. Hi @SoftwareMarcus and @Jackolicious, As far as I can tell from your posts you're both working for Evernote. I'm working as an organizational consultant and I'm always intrigued by processes like the one I see unfolding here. After Penultimate the new Evernote is also (partially) out if sync with its users. So I wonder how come? I mostly see this happen when companies/designers think FOR their customers (inside of the company or team bubble) instead of being in dialogue WITH their customers during the development process. So I would love to know how Evernote's development process is done. And it's not about judging. These things don't go wrong for nothing. I see these kind of symptoms a lot and it's an invitation to revise the way of working. The old ways don't fit anymore. I see both you guys making a real effort to do so. But this is after the facts. I'm curious to see how what happens will inspire Evernote to explore new ways of working. The fun thing is that you are already market leader in note taking. So even if you would open all the gates I'm almost certain it won't hurt you. But back to my question, and out of curiosity, would you be willing to share a bit about how Evernote does its development so that I/we could understand this better. Thanks, Jan
  11. Regarding snippet view: for me the summary text is and too small and too light grey. Hardly readable. I feel strain in my eyes when focussing form large titels too small summary. I also wonder why there is such a large whitespace between titel en summary. Could be half heigh, more then enough. Use the gained space for a enhanced (larger) line height in the summary. I guess all your developers have the luxury of retina displays because the type in sidebar looks far form great here. Almost has some added aura. See screenshot. This is taken from Macbook Air 11". Thanks for moulding EN 6 into a proper shape. Jan
  12. Hi, In the OS X version of Evernote the names of Notebook Stacks in the drop down menu of a single note are way to dim. I understand that it might be confusing to make the a lot darker because you could mix it up with a notebook title but if you make them green they can be clearly differentiated and very legible. Thanks, Jan
  13. As of today (last iOS app update) you can edit the order of sections on the screen en turn then 'off' which effectively transforms them into small icons at the bottom of the screen.
  14. Wouldn't mind losing the hectic background pattern. In an already full screen with very thin type this makes thing less easy on the eyes. Make it even green.
  15. I would love the Evernote Helper for Mac to add the following features. - Option to enter a title for a note. - Option to file a note directly into the right notebook, a dropdown or auto-complete selector would do fine. If not file to inbox - Ability to add tags. The suggestion #tag from the previous post sounds nice. Auto-complete would make it even better. - Maybe implement Textile formatting for easy formatting. Thanks, Jan
