  1. WOW....same issue.....got a new laptop, end of the year, thinking of my transformations, which include many levels, one of which was moving away from Google chrome to Firefox (which is touting lately of being worthy of my attention) - yet I can't clip a PDF into Evernote. Help me understand why (is it really security??!!?)
  2. As to point two - exactly. When I am in research mode on the web, often I will bookmark a page. I recognize useful content and see this as my first pass. Then, later, I will make a second pass and give more attention to the content. However, if I run the web clip search, the results will include clips of sentences, quotes, that are more for reference. I certainly don't want to see them when I revisit my bookmarked pages. Be nice to distinguish as indicated by mcdullhall.
  3. I'm having the same issue, noticed it yesterday....and also intrigued by OP's practice of altering shortcuts daily...I do the same, although not everyday (but often enough to make it a productivity workflow practice)
  4. Thanks PinkElephant. I did a little more playing around and realized it was having the VGA monitor plugged in that is causing the problem, no doubt for the reasons you indicate. In fact, I just posted the following review to this product. I will paste it here as it is relevant. "This is a good product with a variety of ports. I bought it to work with my new Dell xps 13 which has three thunderbolt / USB C ports. I have two monitors that i connect with my laptop...however, connecting the VGA into this device will give a nice display on the monitor but unfortunately breaks a function I perform daily. It's very important to me to capture a region of the screen to make a screenshot. This is the function when you get cross hairs and are able to drag an area to take a screen shot. This is a very useful option that i can no longer use as long as the VGA monitor is connected to this hub. I have tested and tried different variations to no avail. When the VGA monitor is connected and I activate the function to capture a region, the display just goes wonky. Capturing does actually work, however, but with a wonky display and no cross hairs, I can only guess at where I want to stop. I realize that this might be a little thing and I admit it's a very quirky break, but being able to capture regions (something I do daily) makes me give it a 4 star." So I guess I should spring for another adapter (USB C to VGA and HDMI if there is a such a thing) to see if I can get this VGA monitor to work on the dell xps....
  5. unfortunately, the adapter didn't work...this wireless mouse REALLY wants to be in its own port.....i have the clipping functionality I want when i plug the the mouse usb adapter directly into a USB C / Thunderbolt port. The only problem with that is that the adapter mentioned in my previous posts will not run both monitors at once (HDMI and Serial). I'm assuming this is due to power?? Does anyone have experience with that multiport adapter? If I could get that to work with both monitors, then the mouse can have its own dedicated port. I REALLY miss that clipping function....
  6. I figured out what the issue was from playing around. It seems to be located in the following hub https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07VLLKHBV/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_q167Db8WMM0TG that I needed to buy in order to connect all my peripherals to the new xps 13. I currently have my wireless logitech M510 mouse connected into one of the USB ports of this hub (I tried both USB 2.0 and 3.0). For years I have configured all my mouse buttons to activate certain Evernote tasks like jump to a search and create a new note. However, the particular clipping function does not work with this hub. If I unplug the hub and connect the mouse and a monitor directly, the hot key works perfectly. But I need more ports! I bought this hub thinking I could plug all my peripherals in, especially the serial AND the hdmi monitor connections. However, I can only use one at a time. The hub is just not robust enough for two monitors - and apparently this one mouse hotkey function of clipping. So I have ordered another adapter that will accommodate the hdmi connection with a USB 3 to plug in my mouse. Having a mouse button configured to clip a region into Evernote has been a real productivity boost for me. It's a quick way to take a note. I'm hoping the new adapter works and will report back.
  7. I have a new laptop (dell xps 13, windows 10) running evernote 6.21.2.8716 (the latest version) with two external monitors (one hdmi, the other serial). I have a problem with "clip screenshot" when connected to my external monitors. This used to work on my old laptop (same basic setup of two external monitors). However, with my recent new laptop, when activating clip screenshot, I no longer get the cross hairs to see what I'm selecting (for example a region). And the monitor displays jump and distorts. The interesting thing is that if I click and drag, it does capture the region and send to evernote. However, I am usually off quite a bit, because I can't see my outline. Has anyone experienced this? I use this function many times a day, as a way to take quick notes when appropriate and would sure like to see my crosshairs again. Note: this DOES work properly when I'm only using the laptop and NOT connected to external monitors. Thanks, Brad
  8. same problem with 6.11.2.7027, very annoying, don't like rolling back either
  9. I want something fast and the letter 'd' configured to delete a note would be much faster to me and perfect. I work in a dark corner, no back lit keyboard, the delete key is on upper right of laptop, this is 2018 working with hands crossed like that is too onerous! I'm open to autohotkey but would not know how to write a script...
  10. speed of workflow is the issue I use Evernote to capture everything, but then I need to go back, say, once a week (like good GTD practice) and process all those notes. Many of them are deletable, but I could have 300 in a week that I need to process...so since my left hand is already resting on the keyboard, the letter d would be perfect to use to quickly delete those brain farts that should be consigned to oblivion. (I already have my gmail hotkeys set up to do this, and it's blazing fast). Can it be done?
  11. I would really like to have a hotkey that would delete a note. What I would like is to make the letter 'd' a hotkey that deletes a note. It would really speed up workflow, as I already have my left hand on the keyboard and if I could delete notes by hitting 'd' on the keyboard it would be really useful for me. What are the possible ways I can do this? It sure would be quicker than right clicking, or reaching for the delete key..... If Autohotkey is the only way to do this, I would need the script to insert... Appreciate any help!
  12. Just upgraded to 6.6.2.5173 and notice that Control + Space does not simplify formatting anymore.....anyone else having this problem? Have tried on numerous notes....Was a great feature has this been removed??

  14. SAME problem skitch 3.4.1 iOS 10.2 iPhone 7 plus
  15. I just moved to Evernote business and am very disappointed to not have the option to search both personal and business notes in the same query. Will this be changed? It should be, like the others posting here, there could be no possible reason to not have it - especially since it's on the iOS app (again, for good reason!).
