About Tom B.

  1. I hate to say this, but I'm at the point of abandoning Evernote. Whenever I try to open a note containing an attachment, it freezes on me. Every time. I updated to version 7.0, same thing.
  2. Even if this is a Fujitsu-Apple problem, it's something Evernote doesn't need right now when nervous users are already jumping ship in droves. I hope it gets straightened out quickly.
  3. Every time I go to use the extension, it has disappeared from the Chrome toolbar. I go into the Extension setting and see the message: "This extension may have been corrupted." I uninstall,re-install, and sign back in. It works for about another day, then the same thing. This has been going on for about the last week or so. It is Extension 6.7 on Chrome Version 45.0.2454.101 (64-bit).
  4. I am using Evernote Premium on Mac. I need to do a lot of highlighting and commenting of PDF's. The native Annotate function in Evernote is basically useless because it looks like something out of a cartoon. Is there any way to make Evernote index comments in Adobe Acrobat Pro? Is there another third-party program that has good commenting functionality that is searchable in Evernote?
  5. When I scan a file into Evernote as an attachment, it comes in as a .pdf, the contents of which are searchable. When I drop-and-drag or e-mail in an existing file it comes in as a note, the contents of which are not searchable. I need to be able to search the contents (both in the search bar to bring up the results, and using CTRL-F to search within the file) of files I store in Evernote. Any recommendations? Am I doing something wrong?
  6. Skitch just looks so cartoonish that it's basically not usable for me.
  7. I think I just need to explore this better to find what works for me. My main thing is that I use Evernote to organize large numbers of research articles I use in my work. When I read through an article there are sometimes things that are useful in a number of different contexts (an article I'm currently writing, an article I want to write, grant applications, something that is useful for a colleague or student, etc). Ideally I would be able to markup, make notes, etc. on one article and tag those annotations and notes in those different contexts. Having a nice summary like in the current annotation summary that could be filtered by context would be fantastic. I know that's a lot to ask and much more difficult to actually implement. That would just be my dream system.
  8. Thanks, but doesn't that rather defeat the purpose? I would like to keep all my work within Evernote. Also, Evernote provides the nice annotation summary at the top of the document. This could be such an amazing feature if you could highlight text more efficiently and add text notes that didn't look like they were made for cartoons.
  9. I would like to have a traditional text selection tool when annotating a note/pdf. The free-form highlighting tools are difficult to use on a laptop trackpad to be useful. I completely understand their utility in certain circumstances and do not want to see them go away, I would just like to be able to drag and select blocks of texts in a traditional manner.
  10. I am very impressed with Evernote's ability to make my handwriting (both printed and cursive) searchable using the page camera function. I was wondering if there was a way to have that picture converted to a text note?
