  1. I came to the forums to suggest a favorites feature for regularly used notes in a large library and those of us with awful memories where a word search wastes time, and came across this. Turns out we can star notes on iPhone app but not for iPad or desktop (5.0.5). I'm running Lion too (10.7.5). Am I missing something???
  2. I also would like more options for tables (in addition to more control with outlines) for my own PERSONAL use. I don't need the complexity of Excel, but I'd something more customizable to the data I'm trying to keep track. Maybe it's my ignorance, but I've found myself more than once after creating a table and filling it with data, needing to add another column. No luck. I've had to create an entirely new table. Sorting options would be really handy. A simple alpha/numeric/ascending/descending option for each column to have could really make life with these table very useful. It would be nice if there was a simple, compatible option to export/import to Excel without having to do anything special to make it work too, i.e. when importing an Excel file it would build a table with the data without any bells and whistles, and export into Excel in the basic form it was in Evernote.
  3. I guess what I'm doing is mixing what some people/software know as "reminders" and "due dates", and drifting away from what the main focus of this topic post and some of the particular points made. Basically I'm just trying to lay out what I'd like to see and not too concerned if it lines up exactly with what else that's been said. It's probably just my use of my calendar application, but I only like to use it for places I have to be. Everything else that isn't dependent upon me being at a particular place and time involving other human beings directly, ends up as a reminder. I currently don't use Evernote in a professional, shared environment, so I'm just using it to structure my chaotic thoughts and life better. Sometimes my notes, whether they be to-do lists or some sort of information, just need a generic follow-up reminding me of this information or to take the next step on something--nothing time sensitive or critical I want cluttering up my calendar. Other times, a note is related to something that needs to be done by a specific date and time, and/or is related to an event in my calendar. I also guess I'm implying that notes could be sorted by due date if you select that option instead of just being sorted by creation date or last updated with various reminder alert options. In the end, what I'd like to see is a way to set a reminder notification for a particular note sent from Evernote (for individual items in a list would be GREAT, but one step at a time), the ability to add note to an existing calendar event or to create a new event with note, and to sort notes by due date. This is all based on using Evernote with Apple products and specific applications, so that might make things even more confusing. This may all change in a year or so when I will want to bring something like Evernote into a share work environment, but for now, it's solely a selfish desire. Hopefully this is more clear now.
  4. I'm in this boat to some extent too. It's better now than in previous versions, but there's still more than can be done. I try to keep related ideas and thoughts in one note in outline form, and add to them over time. Two out of three times, I'm most likely doing this on my iPhone, so it's a bit more of a hassle to outline effectively. I'm finally using Evernote on my MacBook Pro more now -- as in the last few months -- and foresee using it too on an iPad when I give in and buy one within the next year. Copying and pasting text in from other sources hasn't been the best experience either. I often find myself spending more time than I should trying to keep the format consistant and in a similar manner I'm use to in Word for Mac 2011. I've had a few disastrous attempts with inconsistant outlining, fonts and spacing in the last week with copying and pasting. Often the biggest issue is trying to figure out if it's my ignorance or limitations of the software. My first several months of using Evernote was text only. It was only fairly recently I started using the Web Clipper, audio and photo features. Now I'm trying to get the hang of the new major update. Pretty pleased so far. Still, I'm creating text in outline form the most and doing this multiple times a week now. It would be pretty awesome if there was a plugin for Word to export into Evernote and an export to/open in Word feature (.docx) in Evernote.
  5. I'm aware the due date function isn't exactly what I'm looking for, but I figured post it here for good measure to express what I'd like in the neighborhood of this. This suggestion is exactly what I want to avoid for such a simple task. I also don't want to clutter my calendar with things like this unless it's directly related to an event (say remembering to bring something specific with me)--which some have suggested in the past. Even then, I'd rather it be attached somehow to the event directly and not be a separate event on the calendar. This can be done in iCal in the note section of an event, but the reminder function is a bit too simplified and doesn't give as many options that the Reminder app provides. It's far easier for me to make a to-do list, for example, in Evernote on my iPhone, and then go into Reminders and set a reminder to check my to-do list in Evernote. But, my goal is to use Evernote more for organizing my thoughts and information--not less. I guess I'm ignorant of the complexity of what I'm asking for, but it would seem it wouldn't be the most complex engineering task to have options to add due dates and reminders to notes. Being an all-Apple hardware user now, I guess I'm coming to expect more seamless integration between platforms and functions--that is unless I'm using Maps or Siri now (what a mess). Maybe this is more of an Apple platform type of request and isn't that feasible on other platforms right now, but it wouldn't be the first time something is offered for Apple software, but not the counterpart, e.g. Microsoft Office (some wonderful features available for Office for Mac that isn't available for non-Apple systems!). I'm really liking Evernote more and more, but if I come across someone else offering a better one-stop experience, I'm there.
  6. I was just telling a friend about Evernote and this was my only complaint. I'm currently using Reminders on my iPhone (iOS6), but if I had a similar function available in Evernote for when I make to-do lists or just want to follow up on a note, it would be MUCH more efficient. I'm using Evernote more and more now, but if it had reminders available, I'd probably use it EVERY day for personal use alone.
