  1. Glad you found a tool that fits your needs and suits your budget. That's what matters!
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Never been charged any additional fees, just the subscription price in CAD.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. In theory, Evernote can help overcome this. In order for this to work you'd need to have your partners also use Evernote. You could have the Word documents (or any files, for that matter) added to notes as attachments in notebooks you share with your partners. You could then use Evernote Note Links within those documents, and in other Evernote notes, to link to those PowerPoint files, also stored as attachments in Evernote, and so on. Evernote Note Links allow you to paste links within Evernote, but also within almost any other application, and they become clickable hyperlinks to specific Evernote notes. This works so long as the link-clicker has permission to access that Evernote note (e.g., is part of a shared notebook that contains the note being linked to). Again, these are ideal circumstances, the ability for you to achieve this is really contingent on whether you are able to on-board your partners with Evernote, which I know from experience can be a very hard sell (not Evernote specifically, but anything new...). Anyhow, short answer: Yes, based on the information you have provided, it is possible for Evernote to overcome the link issues.
  14. And for iOS you could check out: Pinpoint (Free + in app purchases http://lickability.com/pinpoint/?ref=producthunt) Printout (Free + in app purchases https://www.macstories.net/ios/screenshot-markup-and-loupes-with-pointout-for-ios/) I use Pinpoint and it's reasonably straightforward. Works for my needs.
  15. You could solve the problem by denying Evernote access to your current location in your devices privacy settings. This can be done on Mac and iOS devices (and I'm sure on Android and Windows devices).
  16. No. It is not a space limit, it is an upload limit. You can store as much data as you want, but the rate at which you add it is capped. If you are a free user, it is 60mb per month. You will regain your 60mb when your month turns over (the date depends on when you created your account, it is not the first of the calendar month). Since you are presumably not uploading anything anyhow, hitting this limit should have no impact because all of the local functions of Evernote should work even if you reach your limit. For example you should have no problem adding to your local notebooks. These are unaffected by the upload limit since their contents aren't uploaded. Keep in mind that unless you use ONLY Local Notebooks in Evernote, all of your content is synced. It is also worth remembering that your default notebook (as defined in your Evernote preferences) is ALWAYS a synced notebook and this CANNOT be changed. You should ensure that you are truly not syncing. Not clicking the "synchronize" button doesn't mean you aren't syncing.
  17. It is possible that either the note was so large that it exceeded the note size limits and was not synced. Or it was stored on your computer on a local notebook, which are not synced. If the note was actually not synced, then it is likely lost, unless you can restore it from a backup of your previous computer system, such as a time machine backup. I can't find a link right this moment but there's plenty of discussion in the forum on how to restore from backups. It's not easy but if this note is everything to you, it might be the only/best option. Also check the Evernote Web interface to see if the note is there, if you haven't already done that. www.evernote.com
  18. My use has shifted so that this is also the case for me. I have other tools that are more secure that I keep those important files in. Evernote gets only the things that do not need encryption.
  19. That's odd... Having no problems here. Perhaps check to make sure that Evernote has access to your contacts in: System PReferences>Privacy & Security>Privacy>Contacts Beyond that, I'm not sure what else could be wrong. May be worth opening a support ticket.
  20. Okay, I provide directions for you in my original post here for both conditions. If the contact notes are real evernote contact notes it is as easy as this: https://www.evernote.com/l/ABnFdTflK49JrZJOaIGFhJUEyLe7-6quGPI
  21. Since this is in the Mac Forum I'll assume you are on a Mac. If your contacts are Evernote's special contacts cards, they can be exported to your Mac's Contacts application which can be synced to Google Contacts (or exported to VCards and imported into Google contacts). If your "Contacts" in Evernote are just regular Evernote notes with contact information, that cannot be directly exported to Contacts or any other contact-like format, and you'll have to do that manually. If each contact is in more or less the same format you could copy and past into Excel and use Excel's "Convert text to columns", make a few tweaks (because that is always an imperfect process), then export it as a CSV from Excel.
  22. 5 bucks in Argentina is a lot of money. I usually keep long notes with photos, and that's why I upgraded to premium. But, what if I can't pay the subscription no more? What would happen to my notes? Nothing. Your notes will always live and be accessible in Evernote even if you switch to Free. The premium upload allowance doesn't have any impact on things you've already added. If your notes exceed the maximum note size for free tier once you drop down from premium, I'm not sure what will happen though, that's the only hitch.
  23. Ah, okay, conflicting changes occurs when there is a sync conflict (could happen for any number of reasons), and it places the conflicting version in a newly created local notebook (on the desktop clients) for you to manually reconcile with the other version of the note. One version will usually have much less, or at least different data, from the other, because of the conflict. Because one version of the conflicting note is on a local notebook on your sector, it won't be present on any of your other devices. Not the most elegant way of dealing with conflicts, but it seems to generally avoid massive data lost at least! Regardless, really glad you've got your data back!
