  1. Funny how things go. I all but converted over to One Note and then saw the thread about Evernote increasing number of notebooks to 1,000 which is great. Im wondering if anyone knows whether there are limits on the number of STACKS you can create? I'm torn between the two products. It's a factor for me and I can't find anything on the subject.
  2. In hindsight you're right - that this would not be the proper forum.

  4. Sure. In Evernote, when you create notes in a notebook, you are forced to use the order assigned by Evernote. Or you can sort according to Evernote's parameters. But in my practice, I needed to have notes in a different order. Example, I always like to have my first note in in notebook (client matter) be "Status Report" and 2nd note be "People in this File" (etc.). There was no easy way to do it. In OneNote, you just drag and drop to any order you want. In OneNote you have notebooks, sections (tabs) and pages all of which you can put in whatever order you like.
  5. Guys I have to tell you I'm working with OneNote for last 24 hours and so far I'm liking it a lot. A LOT. I think its got more robust features that I use (maybe not you) but definately worth a second look if you haven't considered it lately. I also like that there's a way to "close a notebook" to get rid of clutter on files that I'm not using in a particular week. I may wind up doing a full length review at some point for those that may want to consider.
  6. Well, I tell you that so far, I'm liking One-Note. I set up the evernote stacks as notebooks, the notebooks as sections and the sections as pages, etc. What I'm liking so far about One Note is that I'm not forced to sort the Order in the limited ways Evernote forces. I can move sections and notes to any order I want. That's huge for me. I will report further findings as I go along.
  7. Guys thanks for your suggestions. I use one notebook per client but if a client has multiple matters, I identify the client by stack and then the individual matters by notebook and then use notes such as: Players/People in the File; Status Report; Timesheets, etc. and this has been a great fix for me till I got the dreaded "approaching 250 limit." My toes curl at the 250 limit as a paid subscriber. People can make any excuse they want for the company but this is a fix-request for the last several years that hasn't been fixed even though the premium pricing has gone up. Who knows? Maybe I'll be back if OneNote doesn't do the trick either. ..
  8. HI DTLow. Easier said than done since as I said, I'm heavily invested in the notebook (and notebook stack) hierarchy. But you are right about using another method. I'm exploring migrating to OneNote.
  9. I am absolutely seething about this. I'm heavily invested in Evernote at this point as far as time and resources that it took to restructure my law practice. I'm a sole practitioner and don't have an IT department on deck. So the choice is to stick with 250 notebooks or make another leap to "business application" for $14.99 a month? But wait --- I was considering that until I saw two person minimum which means about $30 bucks a month. It's really unacceptable. This is not a free application. I have a fear that if Evernote doesn't listen to its customer base for something so essential like this, the company will go the way of Gavel and Gown -- their once flagship product for lawyers Amicus Attorney eventually faded into obscurity because it failed to address the needs of its paying customer base. I'm seriously going to have a look at Microsoft One Note again -- I'm wondering if that product also has such a limit.
  10. This is my basic "fix" for getting Evernote data into Excel. It ain't perfect but it works for simple tables such as a time sheet that I made, having details as date, time started, time stopped, details and total hours (note that Evernote doesn't perform calculations so once the raw data is converted, you will have to use autosum in Excel to tally up whatever you need to calculate.). Here's my rundown: 1. choose from top menu in Evernote, File/Export as Single HTML Web Page; 2. save the file to your preferred location; 3. Doubleclick on the HTML file you saved and copy the file location from address bar at the top of the HTML file that you opened; 4. Now open excel; 4. choose Data from top menu; then on the left side of second from top menu, choose "From Web;" 5. When prompted, paste the file location of the HTML page you saved; Choose Table when Excel offers you the option. Wallah! 6. A "preview" of the file will open. I just choose "close preview and load" and THERE IT IS. 7. You may need to do some basic formatting - colors, etc. Also you will have to add in whatever formulas you need to calculate. For me, it was as simple as using "autosum" since I only need to calculate the hours I spent. Hope this helps.
