  1. DTLow, Is a "dashboard note" specific to the Mac version of Evernote? It doesn't appear in my Windows or Android versions, nor did I find "dashboard note" after searching the Evernote Help. In the Windows version, the Note List does have different view options including "Card" and "Thumbnail" among other types, however it does not appear that you can create multiple subsections or lists, nor can you "move" a note to an arbitrary position. TIA for your help Ed
  2. Thanks for the suggestions! Good to know the max limit on tags, although a profusion of tags tends to clutter (at least for me). I do use a number of tags (all organized by tag group, identifying a particular type of data for that note), and saved searches in conjunctions with those tags, to get specific results. I've also used some title coding, and occasional "in-body" tags (e.g., "<infotype1>); but have yet to find a way to enable/create data fields for notes. BTW, I also found that capability to export notes, with notebook and tag information, from the list views into Excel, where I can do a fair bit of data cleansing to ultimately build an effective database. I've seen a number of people in the Apple ecosystem talk about "scripting"; I'm assuming this is a IOS system capability (similar to macros in Excel, or VBA ?) I wonder if there is a similar scripting capability that I could use for the Windows version. I'll have to do some searching here. Thanks for your input!
  3. This is something that I'm very interested in - the ability to "categorize" a note with a defined field (used to hold undefined contents). As Eldorado pointed out, when I select the "Info" icon at the top right in a Snippet view of a Note, OR when I select List view (top or side), the note's system fields are displayed. These fields include things such as: Notebook, Created, Author, Sync Status, etc. I can select and edit some of those fields (date edited, author), but not all all (subject) - which is very surprising, since I wouldn't think you actually want to edit the "date edited" field (as a system property), but likely WOULD want to edit "subject". I would like to create and edit custom fields. I've been using Tags, however, there are many types of data for which I do NOT want to create a unique tag. For example, I'm building a reading list system, using web clipper to collect information about various books to read (or have read), from Amazon, Gutenberg, etc. Each title is a unique note. While I can see the sense of using tags for genre, or the read / to read status, it doesn't make sense to use tags for things like author name, or reading list priority number; both of which would quickly generate far too many unique tags. For example, a "Great Books" reading list covers well over 70 books; simply ranking them, or subdividing into genres, or time periods, or some other subcategorization to then rank, would result in LOTS of tags. I currently have a GTD system managed in EN, in which I track project activity by month; so just for 2019, I've got 12 subtags (201901, 201902, etc.) I would find a capability to create and manage custom fields (or "properties") VERY useful and efficient. Is there currently such a way to do this? Or is there a similar request I can upvote? FYI, I use EN on a Windows system, as well as on my Android phone and tablet. TIA Ed
  4. That's too bad...seems like it could be a very useful capability. Thanks for taking the time to respond! Ed
  5. When using Clipper on certain sites (e.g., Amazon), there is an option for a custom clip format, which allows the selection of specific sections to copy to a new EN note. The Amazon custom clip format works quite well to create a book "index card" note. Are there other custom formats available? Or is there a defined process to create such a custom format? For example, I'd like to use custom clip formats for sites such as Gutenberg.org, Archive.org, Powells Books, GoodReads, or other similar "book"-specific sites, so that I can clip and collect different book "index cards" in order to build a personal reading/library list within EN. -TIA Ed
  6. OK, thanks for the effort - I do appreciate the volunteer support! Best Ed
  7. Dave-in-Decatur ; Thanks for your response. That is exactly the way I use to print out multiple notes from a notebook. However, the difference is "on a new paper sheet". I normally print double-sided, in order to save paper. So imagine that - page 1 is the front of paper sheet 1 - page 2 is the back of paper sheet 1 - page 3 is the front of paper sheet 1 and so on. I would like each note to be on it's own sheet of paper, since over time I will likely edit each note, and then reprint. However, if the note extends over 2 (or more) pages, I would like to print double sided. In this scenario, what I really want is for each note to start on an odd number page (e.g., Page 1, Page 3, etc) so that it is always starting on a new sheet. Since I have 179 notes to print, I'd prefer not to print each individually. My only current brainstorm is to print to a PDF file, than manually insert blank pages where appropriate to insure that each note begins on a new "paper sheet". However, that is only marginally less burdensome than printing each note individually. If I didn't care are reprinting updates, than the current process you outlined (and I have been using) works great. However, as I mentioned these notes are in fact part of my GTD project management system, and I would expect (and fully hope) that as I continue to edit, complete, and identify new projects, I will be reprinting individual notes incrementally. Any other ideas are welcomed. In the interim, thanks for your efforts to describe a provisional solution! Ed
  8. Hi - I would like to print the 100+ notes in my GTD folder. I can select all the notes (or some selection), and print (or print to PDF)....but, I'm trying to get each note on it's own sheet of paper, so that in the future I can reprint individual notes without losing parts of other notes. There are only a few notes which are more than one page in length. I am attempting to create something like Paper sheet 1: Note 1, front Paper sheet 2: Note 2, front/back Paper sheet 3: Note 3, front Paper sheet 4: Note 4, front ...and so on. In Tools/Options/Printing, I have selected the option "Print each note on separate page", but that only starts each note on the next page, not on a new paper sheet. Any other ideas? TIA Ed
  9. I have: - Google Nexus 5 with Android 6.0.1, running EN 7.9.4 My wife has: - Samsung SM-G925V with Android 6.0.1, running EN 7.9.4 Good hunting! TIA Ed
  10. As added information - my wife uses EN on a different platform (Verizon Galaxy S6) and has the same problem
  11. This is exactly the problem I've been running into, as well. Prior to this update, a note that included checkboxes (for example, a grocery list) could be viewed, and the checkboxes ticked off and on, with one tap and without having to edit the note. Now, ticking a checkbox is unstable - sometimes it is lag-delayed (10-20 seconds), sometimes it doesn't respond at all, and sometimes it opens the note for editing. Syncing has no effect on this unstable behavior. I've actually tested it at home, sitting in front of my computer with the Windows desktop version, and comparing behavior with both my Android smartphone, and Android tablet. Syncing has no apparent effect on the behavior. And, note that I have the same problem on two different Android instances (one on Android 6, one on Android 5). A return to functionality would be a great improvement! TIA Ed
  12. So Revunote is still among the missing, and the video showing how to link Anki with Evernote is on a platform called "Screenr", which is also now defunct. I do see on Google Code that there is an app to generate an Anki file from tagged Notes - anyone have any experience with this? https://code.google.com/p/evernote2anki/ It looks like the only other app option is to go with StudyBlue.
