  1. I was trying to respond to the statement that this feature is simply not necessary. It seems that not all of the responders are as enlightened as you. I also see that there are other versions of this feature request where others promoters have done an excellent job of presenting the case. But again, some responders just don't seem to understand. Ultimately, this is in Evernote's court. Have they figured out how to make enough money yet to develop useful additions? I think they ran out of venture capital quite awhile ago. As far as I can tell, the only big updates have been to make the mobile apps run more slowly. Oh, and to change the color scheme every year or so.
  2. There are some reasons that this feature needs to exist. One in particular is because some external services use notebooks in different ways. Postach.io for instance links to a notebook. If I want to share a notebook with another person and I want a particular note in the notebook to also be hosted on Postach.io, then, well, it's not possible. I have to keep two separate versions of that note in two different notebooks and synchronize them manually. Even without an external service, I can have the same problem by having two different notebooks shared with different people but wishing to have one note shared with both.
  3. I don't use the business card function in Evernote but I DO use the Android camera scanning widget a lot. I find it frustrating when scanning a business card (or something that kind of looks like it might be a business card) and I am prompted to select what kind of document I want to save it as because the app thinks it's a business card. I don't use the business card function so I'd really like to just bypass this prompt altogether. In my mind, if I have the app set to document then it's a document (automatic mode). If I have it set to "mountain" then it's a plain photo (manual mode). I've already told it what the type is. There are far too many clicks and taps as it is to get a note saved. Did I mention that I don't use the business card function in Evernote? Here's a thought, make business card one of the settings in the upper right corner of the app. Instead of "automatic mode" and "manual mode" there can be 3 and you call them "Doc", "Bus" and "Mountain". Then, if you are scanning a business card you can tell it so even before taking the pic. Then it won't have to prompt us about saving it as a business card.
  4. Oh, forgot to mention that it happened once more after updating the Evernote app on that day. I think it might be a photo number issue and/or total RAM use thing. Keeping the photo count lower for each session seems to avoid the issue. I just wish the app would warn you.
  5. I went back and counted and most of the notes were actually 9-10 pics. I had the same idea and decided to do 4 photos first, create the new note, and then go back and edit that note to add the rest of the photos. I was connected to wifi at the time with a decent connection. Sometimes it drops off for a minute every so often but I've had this issue in other contexts/places as well.
  6. I've had this happen a couple times in the past but it just happened spectacularly. The steps: 1) open widget to take photos. 2) turn on auto rotation (so the pictures arrive the right side up) 3) take about a dozen photos. Each one about 20-30 seconds apart. 4) tap the checkmark at the bottom (after waiting for it to rotate the correct way). 5) try to tap the checkmark at the upper left corner (the note checkmark). It doesn't seem to respond so I let it sit for a minute. 6) the screen times out so I wake it up and enter my code. The widget has now closed. Can't find the note. This is with a Samsung NOTE 3 running the next to latest Evernote app. I just noticed that there was a new update in the past couple weeks so I updated it just now to 7.17. The version that failed was the one right before this update. I also looked for the notes on a computer running the Evernote app. No sign of them. It looks like the widget just gave up and scrapped the whole set of pictures. This failed me 3 or 4 times today. I'm about to try again after the latest update.
  7. I'm baffled that so many issues like this exist in Evernote. But that's probably for another post. I've tried the workaround listed above about saving as html and opening in a browser. I'm finding that the images still show in the "native size" in the html document as opposed to their apparent size (resized in Evernote). So, this isn't a fix. At least for me. I'm struggling to understand why the resize function was added if it doesn't apply to printing or otherwise exporting the note. Evernote could be so great.
  8. Yes, it's strange that something along these lines is not implemented. Even just a password to open the app on a computer would be welcome. I do currently use the pin on the Android app. What is also strange is the responses on these forums suggesting that maybe this isn't the app for me if I'm looking for this kind of thing. The only reason that I am an Evernote user is because of the combination of these 2 features: A_) Automatic searchable "ocr" of images and pdfs. This is huge. Until Onenote I am not aware of any similar software that can do this effectively. I want need this ability to take pictures of documents and other things and find them later without creating tags or notes at the time I took the photo or scanned the document. B_) The cross platform sync that allows me to use a desktop app on OSX and an Android mobile. I've found most of Evernote to be quite pleasant. I don't often have trouble with syncing, the web clipper is indeed pretty nice and the overall flow of it is smooth. I'm just starting to play with Onenote but it doesn't look promising. The Android app is too limited. I'm also concerned about being tied to Microsoft. I spent considerable time searching for an open source option that I could host myself but couldn't find anything suitable. I honestly don't feel that I have other options. It's a shame that Evernote hasn't found it's way yet. And I'm troubled that once they do find their way, they will leave behind many great ideas that someone should be able to continue using.
  9. You're right. I spent some more time playing with it and although it seems quite legible to me, that particular note doesn't want to be searched. The only word that it seems to recognize on the whole receipt is "cheese". Until now I've been very impressed with how well it can recognize search terms in a scan and I've actually been relying on it for that. This has me wondering what other documents there are that I can't find. Is there a way to submit notes like these to the team so the algorithm can get better?
  10. I've recently noticed that Evernote can't find notes containing words that have a type face where the lowercase "L" has the little "flag" at the top but nothing at the bottom. It seems that it isn't recognizing this character as an "L". I'm not certain yet if it is thinking it's a "1" or not. Any one else notice this? For instance, this receipt shows "grilled cheese". Evernote can't find it if I type "grilled" but it CAN find it if I type "cheese".
  11. The message I got from Evernote a few weeks ago basically said that the system requirements are listed on the Mac App store as mentioned earlier in this thread. They even sent me a jpg screen capture from the App store showing the requirements for the latest version. Apparently they still don't see any reason to publish it on the Evernote site. I'm also not sure what other versions might be available for download from Evernote anyway. btw, I have a mac running 10.6.8 that has Evernote 5.5.2 installed and running. I suspect that it is the last version available for Snow Leopard. In my opinion, there are other reasons to move a computer from 10.6.8 as well (the lack of security updates etc). I know that's not possible with older machines depending on the vintage but time does keep pushing ahead and you have to shift at some point.
  12. If Evernote is listening: Hear Hear - Here! I am an avid Evernoter but if I were new to it and had yet to be convinced about how great it is... I'd be very turned off by this lack of standard info at the outset.
  13. I agree with the original poster. I know it's been years since his post but the system requirements are nowhere to be found, still! I find this quite irritating from any software company. Yeah the front page looks slick but you gotta "show me the Motts!"at some point...
  14. I agree on all points. Annoying. And it makes me wonder why there isn't a search results preference panel for other options as well.
  15. I just discovered that even though the date and time that the note was "created" is saved, this doesn't seem to apply to notes that were created on android device while it is not connected to the internet. I have a bunch of notes with photos in them that I was hoping would be aligned with their respective times of day but not so... I would like to see all meta data from photos stored with the photo in Evernote. GPS coordinates included. And while on the subject, I accidentally set the coordinates to my present location while viewing a note and couldn't figure out how to undo that change. It didn't show up in the history for the note.
