  1. I create notebooks by subject matter (techniques, styles, fabrics, etc.) and by course if I've taken one.
  2. I just opened Firefox, went to the New York Times site and was able to clip an article. I have a Dell laptop with Windows 10 installed.
  3. Tags. For the clothing images, I tag by season, by fabric type, by print type, by color, by technique, by design detail, by depth of interest (***). I sometimes wish I could assign a note to more than one notebook but make up for it with copious tags. Still, if I had to choose between notebooks and tags I would select notebooks.
  4. I save important receipts, emails, letters and other documents to Evernote. On occasion, I've added book ideas to Evernote, but I wouldn't use Evernote to write a book. I would use a conventional word processing program or one like Scrivener.
  5. For work, I've created notebooks for individual clients. For courses (I have a college and professional degree, but some sometimes take evening classes), I create notebooks for the course, for individual projects, for books I'd like to borrow from the library. I have many notebooks for interests such as web design. At one point, I was considering creating a blog. I saved notes with site examples I found inspirational, as well as images and fonts. I have taken many advanced level sewing and tailoring courses. I have created notebooks by type of clothing and saved images of garments I'd like to make or find interesting. There are notebooks for sewing, couture, pattern making, and tailoring techniques and fashion history. I also have saved vintage sewing and tailoring texts found online. For any major interest, I have created a notebook, e.g., politics, literature, U.S. history, education. I have over 33,000 notes.
  6. How long have you been a member of this forum? ? At least recently the number of notebooks was increased, a feature requested for many years. I'm going to bask in the enjoyment of that for the next several months.
  7. Thank you for figuring this out and telling us. Evernote Windows 10 is still not working on my desktop but I will try the browser version sometime, although it seems a little complicated. To be honest, I'm wary of adopting too many new Evernote features. In the past, I used Evernote Food, which created templates to record memorable meals and then it no longer existed. I tried to use Skitch (a graphics program that was never properly explained and I never understood how to integrate it into my other notes) and then that was no longer supported. Best to stick to the meat-and-potatoes of the web clipper. Evernote has a history of releasing features that don't work or aren't fully or well explained. I had the same problem with a set of templates created for Getting Things Done. The EN blog made a big deal out of them and then I couldn't open them. The Marketing and PR departments too often are out of sync with the departments directly responsible for the functioning of the product.
  8. Sounds like a good project for IFTT, which already has some Evernote "recipes." https://ifttt.com/search/query/evernot
  9. I just looked in my web version of Evernote. I use Google Chrome. I didn't see the template either.
  10. I didn't upgrade, I already had Premium, but in the past when I tried to create a 251st notebook I would receive an error message. After the announcement, I selected the new notebook choice and Evernote created a notebook. That was all there was to it.
  11. I would consider a system like KanbanFlow or Remember the Milk. I once briefly tried to use Evernote for Getting Things Done, which is quite similar to what you described. It was unwieldy.
  12. I for one never argued that Evernote wasn't usable after having reached my 250 notebook limit, only that it was much, much easier, efficient, and more natural for me to use notebooks instead of tags. Time permitting, I use both a notebook and tags. But if I'm rushed it's easier simply to assign the note to a notebook. And there are many occasions when it was not possible to add tags because of the form of web clipper I was using.
  13. You have my sympathy. I'm glad that Evernote increased the number before I invested that kind of time into moving to another app. I think there is a limit to the number of stacks, but can't tell you with certainty.
  14. The "Ignore" function is a common feature of online fora. If you spend anytime online, it's necessary at times. Far from acting like a child pulling a tantrum, I am following the request of the Moderators. At an earlier point when the feature wasn't working, they agreed I should use it when it again became available. They don't want a forum filled with petty, circular arguing. It's a waste of everyone's time. If I tell someone directly that I'm putting them on "Ignore," which I rarely do, it's a courtesy: "Don't spend your time composing a lengthy response because I'm not going to read it; if you want someone else to, fine." Usually, I've warned the individual at least once in the past. More immediately, I could request not to receive any summaries, but that would deprive me of forum posts that are useful.
  15. Yes, it is very sad. But it's good to have another comment in support of notebooks.
  16. I've used Macs and Windows and have not found Macs to be better, in fact, Macs my family have owned have completed broken down; that never happened to me with a PC. If I did a lot of graphics work I would consider a Mac because the software seems to be better.
  17. I tried OneNote over a year ago and didn't like it as much. I hope that Evernote increases the notebook limit and doesn't institute new price hikes so I don't have to explore OneNote or other apps again. But I will if necessary. I look forward to your review.
  18. Dear Moderator: I have used the forum software "Ignore" feature to avoid being distracted by the posts of members that do not contribute to the discussion. The problem is that the emailed forum post summary includes the text of the Ignored member's posts. Is there any way the software can be configured to leave out that content? Thanks.
  19. I've explained why posts like yours are not helpful. Insisting on your right to keep engaging people in the same old arguments in the guise of help is passive-aggressive. I myself have explained at least 15 times why I prefer notebooks to tags. Others have weighed in. I'm not going to spend my day repeatedly justifying my thought process to you or other members. "Punching bag"? You're the aggrieved party? Lovely.
  20. Evernote Windows Desktop is still not working on my computer. I can't access the templates through the web version, which is the version of EN I've been using almost exclusively for the past five years.
  21. I'm using Google Chrome on a Windows computer. It's not working.
  22. I only use Windows with Chrome and have the latest version. I am using the web version because I have not been able to get the Desktop version to work on my new laptop ever since I've had it. I am using the latest full version, not the beta version. As noted, I watched the video and followed its steps. When I create a note there is no option to select a template, which I saved.
