    I know that is a workaround, but it's not the idea solution. To change notes you have to close the tab in the merged window, swap back to the Evernote main window (which is closed or minimised because of alt-tabbing), open another note, close/minimise and change to new opened note, and re-merge. Now do that several times. Imagine if you had to do that with Chrome... We'd all still be using Internet Explorer!

    Full agreement. For those of us that work in and out of multiple notes this is a huge one. I find that I'm lost a lot because 'Work' or 'All Notes' doesn't help me 


    When it should say 'Meeting Notes - 10/14/18' or 'Vanadium Pentoxide Research'

    Two very different things. 

    You guys can do it, I know you can do it. Pass the string, just pass it in. 

    It's as if they don't care...

  3. I've had this for a couple weeks now; I think it's since iOS8 (iPhone 5S). Anyone else had this, or know a solution?


    Nearly every time I open the app, the error in the photo shows. I click "Try again" and the box disappears but nothing happens; then I click the sync button (the round one) and it syncs perfectly. I wonder if it's an issue with background refresh or location services? I've tried turning them on and off, and reinstalling the app, but no difference. Internet connection is always fine.


    Similarly, I get a lot of "Conflicting modification ..." in my notes now, even though there is no difference between the original and the "conflicting" one.





  4. If you're having to hunt through "hundreds" of tags, it sounds like you're either overtagging or could organize your tags differently.  I have tens of thousands of notes in my main account & rarely have a problem finding the one (or few) I'm looking for.  IE, starting with "all notes" (not even relegating the search to a single stack/notebook), I can find the ONE note that is my cable bill from May of 2012 (out of over 63,000 notes).  It's very, very simple, easy & fast.  I find descriptive titles & keywords helpful.  IMO, if I have to search for more than a minute for the note(s) I'm looking for, then I need to change the way I organize/tag/title my notes.



    I'm not saying I have trouble finding a specific note; often it's remembering which note I want to find! Hence why I like to create Index/Contents notes. And yes, I realise it's easy to go to the notebook or a tag and look through to find it, but I'd rather keep all the clicking/tapping within the note screen, especially when you know without looking where you want to click (i.e. top link then third link then second link then back then third link versus going through cards and cards.


    I appreciate this isn't a hugely needed function, but I'd find it helpful :)

  5. You can link from one note to another ('copy note link' option in the desktop clients) and you can use tags to span across notebooks/stacks.



    Yeah, I realise that - I use note links and tags a lot. I just think it'd be a lot quicker to be able to link to a notebook or a notebook index note than having to go to the notebook itself and change the layout from cards to list (especially on mobile platforms where the notebook is part of a stack), or going to the tag cloud and hunting through the hundreds of tags for the one you want (or searching for it and sorting through the results).


    Maybe it's just me - I've always been one for simple contents-style organisation, like folders in operating systems. One links to the next which leads to the next etc. Mouse/finger barely has to move to access layers of information, especially with the help of there back button.


    AFAIK, there is no EN client that does this.  I doubt it would be added since it's basically a function that already exists...   Simply select the notebook or stack you are looking at & all the notes in that notebook or stack are in the results pane.



    That is true, but unfortunately you cannot link to that from another note, which is what I would intend to do overall. Expanding my above example, if Buy a cat was a notebook containing multiple notes, not in the same stack as Tasks, and I wanted a Tasks Contents note to have a note link to Cats Index which would give me an index of all the tasks required to buy a cat.

  7. Often I use Note Links to organise my notes. I have a primary note which has multiple Note Links to other notes in various notebooks and/or stacks. Is there a way to create this contents/index-style note automatically, creating a note with Note Links to all the notes within a certain notebook or stack?






    Notebook: Tasks

    Note 1: Buy a cat

    Note 2: Learn to backflip

    Note 3: Go to Mars


    Then there's an Index function which creates a note in Tasks called, say, Tasks Index, the contents of which is:

    Buy a cat

    Learn to backflip

    Go to Mars



  8. Been using Penultimate for a few days now. It's great, but a few functions are either missing, or I can't find.

    Many have been talked about in other threads, such as syncing, tagging, moving to different Notebook in Evernote, etc.

    The things I haven't seen before:

    Can you crop images? I can't find a way.

    An invisible layer over the current page. There is talk of "highlighting", but I'm thinking of an entire invisible layer you can on which can be easily removed/hidden and will not change the layer(s) below. Think Layers in Photoshop.

    If these are available: Please let me know how to use them.

    If these are not available: Please make them available, then see "If these are available:" above.
