    Two device limit is a bad idea

    Glad you found a tool that fits your needs and suits your budget. That's what matters!
  2. This is unusual behaviour. I had paid Evernote for much of my time using it, but even when I was free with 60mb, I rarely RARELY got close, and I used it extensively. The quota use, from month to month, always made sense – never did I feel as though the application was trying to cheat me by counting extra. I suspect it comes down to one of the two things already mentioned: 1. You are editing one or more very large notes, and which is continuously being re-uploaded after each set of changes is saved (Think of a 1mb note edited 60 times in 1 month... which would be an uncommon scenario, but an easily-achieved situation nevertheless). 2. You have a lot of deleted content in your trash. The Evernote client sees that as always potentially uploaded and counts it (as long as it is in your trash) against your quota. Solving number 2 is easy, empty your trash! Solving number 1 is less easy (though this is a problem I've never personally encountered and rarely ever seen reported on these forums).

    Evernote to PDF

    Since Evernote supports the Print action, you can save a PDF that way. 1) Open a note 2) Open the share sheet (upward arrow coming out of a box). 3) Select the Print action (bottom row of icons in the share sheet, if it's not visible, tap the "More" button to enable Print) 4) when you see the Printer Options screen, two-finger-reverse-pinch (zoom-in gesture) on the preview (or force touch, if you have a newer iOS device) to open it in full screen. 5) from the full screen preview, tap the share sheet button (bottom left) to import it to dropbox (or any other application). It's not elegant, and it looks like a lot of steps, but after you do it once, you'll find it's reasonably quick. (This is not to say that Evernote shouldn't build in a proper PDF export feature! Just pointing out a relatively easy workaround in the meantime).
  4. Just checked on my iPhone, should be similar on iPad. While viewing a note, you should see a share icon (box with upward arrow). Tap that share icon and in the bottom row of icons (black and white) you'll see "Copy Link". Once you tap Copy Link you'll be given the option to copy a private or public link.

    mac Rename Attachment to Title

    I have a similar tendency as @csihilling. Most things are already properly named. Anything that is not properly named just goes into Evernote anyhow with the ugly name since the note title or document contents are more than sufficient for search. I'll only rename the file if it is getting moved to another storage location where filename matters, or if I'm sending it elsewhere. I think it would be a great feature to be able to rename an attachment to the note title or any other arbitrary selection of text (though how to handle it if there are multiple attachments?), but I can only suspect that this would be a lower priority feature if it even made it onto Evernote's "to-do" list.

    Correct.

    Evernote Support

    As DTlow notes the forum, being a user forum, is a poor test of the support. I hope your official contact with support goes well and that you are able to get your issue resolved!

    Evernote Support

    Did you even submit a support ticket before posting here? I think you've put the cart before the horse. Evernote's support has not always been stellar – they have often seemed back-logged which has earned a (not totally unjustified) mixed reputation – but they really do seem to try and get things sorted out for users if it's technically possible to do so.
  9. Yup, select the notes that contain the receipts as attachments (you can select multiple) and then choose "save attachments". Save those to the directory of your choice and they're ready to be sent off as email attachments.

    Evernote "upload-only" app?

    Zapier or IFTTT, combined with a cloud service like Google Drive or Dropbox may give you want your looking for. Have you checked those out? I imagine you could create a recipe to take any file added to a specific Dropbox/drive folder and add it to Evernote.

    It's a bit of a pain in the butt, but that's likely the point. I don't want to see ads, especially not targeted ads, and they already limit bandwidth (that 60mb cap isn't exactly generous). The market sucks sometimes.

    Notebook Colors .... Useless!

    Can this not be accomplished simply by making a Stack of notebooks named after your destination. Stacks can be collapsed or opened whenever you like. When a trip is complete, add "z" prefix to the name to force it to sort at the bottom of the stack (and upcoming or current trips can be prefixed with a symbol like ! . or @ to force it to the top). That said, you'd be unable to do something like, for a given destination, make sub-folders for "routes" and "sights" or whatever. Tags can go along way with that, but you apparently already know about everything tags can do, so I'll spare you an explanation. What is really sounds like you are saying is that you want hierarchical organization, or else. I'd consider setting up such a hierarchy in your computer's filesystem, and if you need mobile/online/cloud access, put the hierarchy into something like Dropbox.

    Creating INBOX outside of Notebooks

    You can set up a "default notebook" In Evernote preferences. I have named my default notebook .inbox so that it is always at the top of the notebook list. As the "Default notebook", this is where Evernote puts anything you add that it doesn't know what to do with (such as if you add it from a third-party application that doesn't let you specify a notebook). This is a behaviour of Evernote. As my "inbox" notebook, it is where I place all the things I want to sort out later. This is a personal behaviour, it defines the way I treat this specific notebook, which also happens to be the "Evernote Default Notebook". You do not need to make your inbox the default notebook, but I tend to like it that way because sometimes when I am adding content I just don't need to think about where it is going, or should something go wrong with my attempt to select a notebook upon capturing (e.g., I mis-type the name of the notebook in an email subject line as I email a note into Evernote), I know it will always go to my .inbox, which I check on a very regular basis. So that's the major advantage of having your inbox also be the Evernote Default notebook.
