  1. Remember that Evernote is not just a product, it is also a service. It is one thing to purchase a perpetual software license that grants your free updates for life. There is overhead as developers need to be paid, but your scanner software is not a service. Evernote is, in essence, a cloud storage company. You need to pay for your little segment of the server storage and processor ticks devoted to storing and processing your data, which is done continually. You have to pay monthly/annually just like with Box, Dropbox, Crashplan, and so on, all of which are SERVICES. You aren't just paying for that app on your computer or the next update. There are VERY few services that offer a one-time lifetime fee.
  2. I can confirm that what Adjusting is saying is, in fact, true. Tags listed in sidebar. If I am in any notebook I OWN, (shared or not), ALL my tags appear. When I switch to a notebook owned by someone else, ONLY the tags used in that notebook appear.
  3. The response from Evernote support seems sensible to me. iOS, the operating system that runs on iPads and iPhones and iPod touches and is created by Apple, has "Data detectors". These data detectors look for sequences of characters that may resemble phone numbers, addresses, dates, package tracking numbers, etc. This means that you can simply tap a phone number and have it dial that number (rather than copying the number, opening the Phone app, pasting the number, and initiating the call), or tap a tracking number to immediately load the tracking website, or select a date to bring up a new event at that date and time. When these work, they are great, but sometimes it produces false positives, such as Social Insurance Numbers or Social Security Numbers interpreted as phone numbers. Now, these false positives are pretty benign because there is not real modification of the text being applied (which is why these things don't show up as highlighted on other clients). These data detectors are applied globally - that is, they are done at the level of the operating system. There is no facility that allows Evernote to include a setting in their own app to allow a user to turn it off. Also, Apple (and presumably Google, though I don't own an android device) doesn't offer the user a global setting either, so it cannot be turned off on a global basis. Annoying though it may be, there's no real harm being done. Any string that is highlighted can be copied by long-tapping it. These are also not changes written into the text, so if you send it to someone else or view it on a different device, the formatting (say, blue text with underline) is not going to display either.
  4. When you are viewing the list of your notebooks, you should just be able to drag any notebook from one stack directly to another. Just tried it with several notebooks between several stacks and had no problem. Select notebook in Stack A, drag to Stack B.
  5. Glad it worked. Yeah the uninstall/reinstall process is a bit cumbersome, though thankfully Evernote's much faster sync takes some of the bite out of re-downloading large databases. Though it's still a pain in the butt. Hopefully you won't have to do it again for a good long while!
  6. The suggestion to remove images upon clipping is interesting, I can definitely see how that could be useful for articles where images are sprinkled in with text. As a workaround, try selecting just the desired text before invoking the clipper (hard if the article has in-line images). There is no way I know to easily view the HTML of a note in Evernote. The only way I can think of at the moment is to export an individual note as "html" and open in a text editor.
  7. I agree. Thankfully because the issue has been brought up before and because we are discussing it here in a location the is read by Evernote staff, we can rest assured that they are aware of our feelings (and we can keep our fingers crossed that they act on it).
  8. I am not sure how it looks on the Windows Client, but on the Mac client, there is no real obvious way other than holding your cursor over each one to see whether the share/config icon appears (synced) or not (local).
  9. You might try a re-install, perhaps there is a bungled preference file or registry entry. Make sure your Windows 7 Client is properly synced and any local notebooks are backed up appropriately. Uninstall Evernote. Then re-install the Evernote application.
  10. What client (Mac OS, Windows?) are you experiencing this issue with? When you view your notes at www.evernote.com, are your shortcuts there?
  11. If you go to View>sidebar Options>Show Shortcuts (May be slightly different on Windows), is that "ticked" or 'un-ticked'?
  12. Thankfully this has been requested numerous time on these forums and Evernote staff do read these forums even if they do not always respond. Since EN doesn't publish their roadmaps or future features, we'll just have to sit tight!
  13. 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.
  14. It has been suggested just now by you. Evernote staff read these forums though they do not often write responses. They also rarely publish their development timelines and plans, so whether this is in the pipes or not it unknown. You'll have to wait until it appears or it doesn't.
  15. 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.
  16. why not search: tag:portraits or tag:portraits tag:photography or tag:photography Do these not accomplish what you are trying to achieve?
  17. 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.
  18. I have never experienced this sort of problem.
  19. 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.
