  1. Ok, so here are a few suggestions: 1) Fix your settings at Google.com so that google doesn't pull your Facebook events. (Not a google user so I can't help you here). 2) In Evernote on iPad tap your username to enter the settings menu. Turn off "automatic note titles". This will prevent Evernote from inserting title suggestions from your calendar and location. 3) In iOS, open the device's settings app>Facebook>Calendar and Switch that off. That will prevent your iOS from displaying facebook events.
  2. Since this would be a feature are plug-in for a third party application (eMclient), you are better off requesting that they integrate this into their application. Evernote offers some great developers tools and a robust API to allow third parties to do just the type of thing you are asking for.
  3. why not search: tag:portraits or tag:portraits tag:photography or tag:photography Do these not accomplish what you are trying to achieve?
  4. I did about 15 cards and it worked very well! Sometimes cards with non-typical layouts caused some grief, and sometimes perfectly good photos were oddly cut off on one edge or another, usually cards with dark backgrounds. But really on,y a small minority needed manual fixing.
  5. I have never experienced this sort of problem.
  6. I don't know about windows, but on the Mac client (and the Evernote Web client when accessed on a Mac) allows you to: 1) Select text 2) right click on selection 3)Transformations>Upper Case/Lower Case/Capitalize This allows you to convert the selected text to ALL CAPS all lowercase or Title Case.
  7. I have dabbled in IQTELL a bit and it looks to be a solid productivity platform with good email and evernote integration, among other things. I did find it relatively complicated so if you plan on using it to collaborate with less tech-savvy people, be prepared to become ad hoc tech support, or for them to reject it because they're too busy to learn something new. Ultimately I didn't need what IQTELL offered so I stopped using it, but not because it wasn't good. I think IQTELL is definitely powerful, so long as you bring all of your stuff into it, I think that is when it works its best. Also it has been around for a few years so not necessarily "infant". A lot of the complaints from that review you posted looked pretty idiosyncratic, or workflow specific, aside from the obvious complaints about being a website based service (which is a pretty big drag, but then again, that's why we have our evernote clients open in our docks too right? for those desktop filesystem things we need to get done!)
  8. I can sympathize with the desire to have everything in one place, but I don't mind too terribly much the two-system approach. Some day the system of my dreams may come about but for now I'm happy and more effective than I was before! Gneo is intriguing, but I think a desktop version will be needed to win me over, and I understand one is in the works. The only other problem is that my spouse and I use evernote and Wunderlist to coordinate personal and household things, and while I am happy to pay for evernote premium—and Wunderlist is free—I doubt I could sell my spouse on Gneo at $10 (plus whatever the desktop version costs). So there's that inertia for me I guess! I do like the look of Gneo though...... hmmm.....
  9. I personally use Wunderlist (I suppose you could use whatever list-oriented application you like here like Remember the Milk. I've chosen Wunderlist) for the majority of my day-to-day stuff since it is available on all my devices. Wunderlist gets the less information intensive stuff and the items that recur very frequently such as ever few days or every week. Other longer-term recurring tasks that are not information heavy go in there too such as "take the ring to jewellers" - recurs every 6 months but no additional information is needed so Evernote is excessive. I also use Evernote for tasks but usually those that are more information-intensive. For example, if there are forms that need to be filled and submitted on a particular day (pet licence renewal, for example), or if there is information relevant to a future meeting or project, it goes in Evernote, filed appropriately, with a reminder set for the date on which action is required (such as a few minutes before a meeting). Sometimes I combine the two. For example, I might create an item in Wunderlist but use an evernote note link in Wunderlist's comment field (I do this with my calendar too!). The great thing about this is that Mac and iOS devices both understand the evernote:/// link, so in wunderlist/Calender, when you click that link it opens the appropriate note in Evernote. This is my strategy! Hope this helps.
  10. Hi Rextilleon, I think you hit the nail on the head. They do their best to optimize their application for the widest possible variety of use cases, but inevitably there are shortcomings of one type or another. These could be related to hardware/OS limitations, or unanticipated use cases, or extreme difficulty in implementing the feature (especially across platforms, and often times it is minor or seemingly simple features that can be the most troublesome!), or because they simply do not see Evernote as being the optimal application/service for a particular use case and would rather not complicate it unnecessarily. Now, if you or I could develop the program of our dreams, that would really be something! Alas, we must work with someone else's vision of what the software ought to be which will always fall short here or there, no matter how good the developer is. Glad you enjoy Evernote and the community here is always happy to help or just "talk shop" about Evernote!
  11. well perhaps one day it will be easier to bulk-share notebooks. Unfortunately Evernote doesn't publish their roadmap so we can only speculate! We'll just have to wait and see. That being said I don't imagine it will be high-priority. Sharing is really a one-time deal, you don't have to continually re-share. That being said, if you are needing to share something like 5 or more notebooks, I can see how that can be frustrating, but again, at least once it is done, it's done!
  12. While this is only speculation, one reason why this may not be implemented is that it would essentially prohibit shared users from implementing their own stack organization on notebooks they are invited to. For example, lets say you are part of a group with several concurrent projects (project A, B, and C). You have a notebook for each project, plus a general group notebook. You might be inclined to make a stack "Group", and share the whole deal with your users, who will all then have this stack. But what if Jacob wants Project B in a different stack, or wants the group notebook in a different stack from the project notebooks? Perhaps the biggest issue is, what happens if you add Polly to the group, but she's only involved in Project A and Project C? Then you'd have t o independently share just those notebooks with her and NOT the stack. So everyone else gets the stack but Polly gets individual notebooks. But then Lauren gets added and she's Project B only at first, but then joint projects A and C. So what do you do with Polly? Share each individual notebook, or do you revoke access to Project B then invite her to the stack? Too complicated for little benefit. If your organization is this complex, the additional features of Evernote Business may be worthwhile.
  13. I agree a renewal notice for annual subscriptions would be an easy and non-instrusive way to helping users keep on top of things, but I don't know if I'd go as far as to say this is sneaky. Alternatively, you could always use Evernote to store a copy of your receipt and set a reminder
  14. Ha! There's a certain humorous irony in a problem with your calendar subscription "fixing" your evernote name suggestion problem....
  15. It looks like such fine-grained setting is not available. I also had a similar issue where I had an all-day event that spanned 2 months, so every note suggestion was simply the title of that event! Evernote tries to use your "location, calendar, and other information to suggest note titles", I guess making very basic decisions about which source is most likely to be relevant to the user. Using calendar information as a first choice for suggestions makes sense, because if the current event is "party planning committee meeting", there's a really good bet your note will be related to the part planning committee meeting! However, Evernote is not smart enough to know that "Overcast 4C/1C in St. Petersburg" is not the same as "party planning committee meeting". I think a setting that allows the user to select calendar, location or both as sources for suggestions would definitely be helpful. Do you use that weather calendar on iOS at all? Or is it mainly something you use on your desktop? For the moment, until/if Evernote decides to improve this feature, you may consider un-ticking that weather calendar from your iOS device's calendar settings, which should prevent Evernote from interpreting that event as important (but also preventing you from seeing it on your iOS calendar...).
  16. If you are on the mac you can try cmd-opt-shift-v to paste without formatting (or with simplified formatting, or with destination's formatting). That may help in SOME cases.
