  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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).
  4. 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).
  5. 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.
  6. What client (Mac OS, Windows?) are you experiencing this issue with? When you view your notes at www.evernote.com, are your shortcuts there?
  7. If you go to View>sidebar Options>Show Shortcuts (May be slightly different on Windows), is that "ticked" or 'un-ticked'?
  8. 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!
  9. When viewing any note, there should be a button comprised of three dots. That's what we have perhaps erroneously been calling "more"
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. In fact, I don't think you even need to tap "more" to change notebooks, though you do in order to change tags/
  14. why not search: tag:portraits or tag:portraits tag:photography or tag:photography Do these not accomplish what you are trying to achieve?
  15. 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.
  16. I have never experienced this sort of problem.
  17. 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.
  18. 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!)
  19. 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.....
  20. 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.
  21. 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!
  22. 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!
