  1. So good to be coached on how to post usefully.
  2. Earthshaking breakthrough - so intuitive....
  3. Do any Mac apps implement local links? pete
  4. re: :// local files. Could the dropping of this essential feature be something to do with the fact that the database is now in the cloud and no longer local? Perhaps there's a fundamental engineering trap that means that a cloud-based 'base cannot link to a local file? IANAD pete
  5. when I buy a new Ford I would expect it to be able to get me to the same locations my old one did. And your 80 alternatives don't do that, either. pete - stay well!
  6. Yes. How do I get it to you? although I think TPTB have posted a link to it hereabouts. pete
  7. Sorry if I've missed this but has anyone, whether user or developer, posted a side-by-side comparison of features? I updated to 10 as soon as it was offered and it immediately felt like those awful moments when a GTD app that I had tightly integrated into my lifeflow dies and I audition new ones, none of them with the same architecture or features. I'm back to 7 now, happy as a lark, and turning a blind eye to the future. I don't consider myself a power user - I use tags extensively, links within and without Evernote, audio clips ( i'm a composer, among other things. And, of course, the GUI (pre-10) is delicious, giving me freedoms that other apps never quite matched. pete
  8. Is that because on my mac, the links relate to files on my mac which the web client can't access? Or is the new Web client MP3 incapable? pete
  9. Note Links used to work transparently - I click a link, I get the linked note. Now, I get a small window with the link address which I have to click again to get to the linked note. If instead, I CRTL-click the link I do go straight to the linked note but the small window remains and I have to click it again to close it. Bottomline: note links, which I use extensively, were a one-click affair. Now they're 2-click affairs pete
  10. if it's still possible to add a single checkbox from the <insert>. drop-down, what's problematic about giving it a keystroke? And adding a new item to a checklist using your new checkbox tool kills all my numbering pete
  11. Success! It works well, thanks DTLow the fresh install did it cheers pete
  12. I have no memory of downloading it. Is it possible that when I trialled Devonthink a few years ago, it was downloaded then as part of the install package? Ill install from the app store, and if that causes a problem, I'll unistall devonthink pete
  13. DTLow, many thanks 🙂 I already have Wordservice on my mac and when I use it I get the attached alert. After about 10 secs, the list does sort, so I'm on my way - although I lose all my formatting and checkboxes so will have to adapt my design cheers, very helpful! 🙂 pete
  14. Thanks DTLow, have voted. how do I add Services to Evernote? pete
  15. I use a masterlist of urgent jobs in a single note, and would like to sort that list. Is it possible?
  16. I'm using Evernote as a superb compositional/project task list and log. I have many prototype songs, one to a note, each of which will have a clip or more of audio. To PLAY is easy, just click on the PLAY button. But intuitively I want to either click that button again to STOP, or press spacebar or some other key. Instead, I need to press an icon quite a distance from the PLAY button. I request that either the PLAY button has a companion icon for STOP, or a keypress will STOP cheers, and thanks for a wonderful tool! stay well pete
  17. thanks for the illustration PinkElephant - I'll download Things and see how it might work for me pete
  18. wow, you've just blown my mind. Another task database?... hmmm. I've got folders and files from Palm, Mori, Omnifocus and dawkins knows what else. And your method smells of opportunity 🙂 thanks pete
  19. unsure how to graduate from checklists to individual notes
  20. thanks for this DTLow. I can immediately see how I can structure my tags more imaginatively. at the moment they are a single level class that I identify by the first few characters. Not ready to have seperate notes for each task as I explain in a parallel post. Here in equatorial guinea, we cut iceblocks all year round. pete
  21. Ah, I haven;t got into the practice of having a seperate noye for each tak. I've been using checklists within notes. I've got > 1000 notes, many of them with checklists. If I broke them down to task-par-note I may hvae upwards of 5000-10000 notes. I'll have a think about this. I can see how note-per-task might be efficient in some ways pete
