  1. all of your penultimate content is stored, by default, in an Evernote notebook called "Penultimate". You can view this by opening Evernote on your mobile device, desktop, or web browser, and navigating to the Penultimate notebook. Accessing your penultimate content this way is really only suited for viewing not for editing or major manipulation.
  2. I've not experimented with this feature, and was reading here to learn more before I do. My phone contacts are synced to Outlook already, so getting it into my phone should get it to outlook. However, I do flag personal and business contacts in Outlook, and at times have then exported some business contacts from Outlook to another CRM (and deleted them from Outlook). I'm a sole proprietor, so some mixing of these contacts is not a problem for me. I'm wondering if there is some option to categorize or otherwise flag the contacts coming out of Evernote. That would give me the option of deciding how to handle them in Outlook, but all the data would be there. For those who are looking for a CSV option, passing it through Outlook would be pretty painless, I would think. There's no way within Evernote to flag a contact one way or another (You could tag a contact, but that's really only relevant within Evernote). You'd have to do any grouping/categorizing/flagging in your Contacts application after it was exported.
  3. Deleting a picture is just like deleting text. You place the cursor in front of the image, and backspace over it.
  4. Can you explain in more detail what you mean? How is it not downloading the application? When you open the App store, find the Evernote Application, and click Buy (or Download if you've already downloaded it before), what happens?
  5. I think in this case you'd be best to consider Premium, but more likely a Business account (I believe there are education/non-profit prices available). All accounts have limits on how many notebooks you can have and share, and how much you can upload each month. Free and Premium's limits may be too low depending on the size of your institution. More details on the limits of various levels of service: https://evernote.com/contact/support/kb/#!/article/23283158 However, putting that aside, lets consider the questions you pose. In theory, yes, though this depends on the number of teachers. View the limits for each level of service. At a minimum, the principle would need a premium account to share more than one notebook with edit privileges (meaning, invitees can modify the notebooks contents). There may be more efficient ways of doing this. You might create notebooks for each subject or for each course, rather than a notebook per teacher. You could then invite teachers to notebooks relevant to their area. So, lets say you have a gr 11 physics class "Physics 11". You can create a notebook called "physics 11" and invite all the physics 11 teachers to that notebook. Likewise, you might have English 12, to which you'd invite all of your english 12 teachers. This way, if teaching staff shuffle each year, you can simply revoke access to notebooks they no longer teach, and invite them to notebooks they are now teaching. The major benefit of this is that you avoid frequently moving a large number of notes around, which if not done carefully could result in misplaced or lost data. Shuffling users in and out of notebooks that remain essentially static in their contents is going to drastically reduce the chances of an error. Depending on the number of teachers you have, though, I would highly recommend avoiding having one notebook per teacher, at least to avoid hitting account limitations, but also to prevent an organizational nightmare. Following the above scheme, the principal could make the course notebooks "read only", so that teachers cannot modify the contents. Instead, they would copy any forms or plans they need to one of their own, personal notebooks. This means there would always be a blank form in the course notebook to be re-used over and over by copying it to the teacher's own notebook(s). I could see something like the following: Notebooks shared by principal as read-only: Course A Course B Course ...... Course N General Administration/Resources Each "Course" notebook would contain all relevant course material, including lesson plans and forms, etc. that the principal wants to provide the teachers of that course. These notebooks would be updated and maintained by whichever administrator is responsible for this content (sounds like the principal?). You would have 1 or more notebooks for general school resources and administrative information, to which all teachers would be invited. The principal (or whomever the relevant administrator is) would invite teachers for each course to corresponding notebooks. When the teacher is no longer teaching that course, they can be removed. When a new teacher begins teaching a course, they can be added. Teachers will be invited to notebooks associated with the courses they are responsible for. They can view, but not modify the contents of these notebooks. Instead, they would copy a blank form or lesson plan from the "Course" to a notebook they create and maintain themselves, and which is not shared. This copy would be the one they can modify freely, and each week or as needed they can copy the form/lesson plan from the shared notebook to their own notebook (or notebooks, depending on how they like to keep themselves organized). As you can see, this is fairly one-way. The principal (or relevant administrator) sets up and maintains the "Course" notebooks, and shares them to appropriate teachers. This would ensure that the integrity of the "Course" notebooks is maintained, and reduces the chances of a teacher inadvertently modifying their contents. You could, of course, set of one or more notebooks that are shared such that both principal and teachers can modify contents. At the very least, the principal would need a premium account. Teachers may be able to get away with free accounts, depending on exactly the nature of the contents being stored. Much of this, however, would be facilitated by some Evernote Business features, which offers a bit more robust administration. Again, just brainstorming here, not knowing the details of how your institution is organized. Perhaps at the very least this gives you some sense of what level of Evernote service would work best, and a starting point for organization.
  6. Happy to help! Good luck working through this and definitely do post back here!
  7. 1) To share notebooks with your students, every student will need their own Evernote account. Make sure this is something that your school and your student's parents are okay with. 2) Here is the list of limits that exist for the various levels of Evernote service: https://evernote.com/contact/support/kb/#!/article/23283158 You will notice that Premium users can have a maximum of 250 notebooks. This is the sum of all of your notebooks, including ones you join or have shared. This would accommodate your 160 students + a few for a few grade levels. 3) The possibility of sharing notebooks publicly was recently, temporarily revoked. While the feature has been re-instated, I don't know how much confidence I'd have in its indefinite availability. 4) You can ensure that each student gets and accepts the invitation to their individual shared notebook because you should get a notification in the "activity centre" in the evernote application (little satellite dish in the tool bar). You can also check the sharing settings for any given notebook to verify whether it has been joined or not. 5) It would be wise for YOU to be the owner of the notebooks created for each student so you maintain control of it. It might be a bit technically challenging to get each of your 160 students' parents to share a notebook with you. As I see it your scheme would look something like this: 1 notebook for each student. You need to create each notebook, and enter the email address your student used when they signed up for Evernote = 160 1 public notebooks for each grade = 2 or 3 or so Several notebooks of your own for your own personal needs = 1-5 This means you'd be using between 163 and 168 (or more) notebooks. This is well within the 250 limit imposed on Premium users. Your students could each use free accounts because they'd only have 2 notebooks - the personal notebook you create with them, and the public notebook. Plus any notebooks they create themselves. The one down side to this is that, I imagine in a school, it is an all or nothing thing. That is, if a single student or their parent decides they don't want to create an evernote account, then you'd probably have to abandon it for that entire class lest that student be left out. So you'd REALLY need to work hard to get buy-in from parents so that EVERY parent consents. Please please please make sure you ensure that this is okay with your school and the students' parents. Also please be very careful about including any personal information in the notebooks. The contents of these notebooks are stored on Evernote's servers, and while Evernote has pretty standard security features in place, you need to take caution about what you do with other people's information. I hope this helps.
  8. Here's a screenshot showing a spotlight search for the title of a note called: "Screen Shot 2014-09-02 at 9.45.39 AM" https://www.evernote.com/l/ABk7o9wDy9RIE4GNAVZD8vKHIQ3lGbUKo2w You can see that in spotlight it shows up as a "document".
  9. What browser on what operating system are you using? If you are using Mac OS, in Safari you can right-click the toolbar and select "customize toolbar", and re-add those buttons. If Google Chrome, you might need to go to Chrome>Preferences>Extensions, and use the options for the specific extension to show the button.
  10. I should note that in Skitch, the process is slightly different. You need to select the format in the bottom left where it says .pdf to be just ".pdf" NOT ".pdf with summary". Tried this method too using the current public version of skitch, and it successfully produced an annotated PDF without a summary.
  11. You choose the passphrase when you encrypt the text. If you want to chance the pass, you need to select "decrypt text permanently", then re-encrypt it using your new passphrase. Encryption only works at the "text level", that is, only on selected text. Since you cannot encrypt at the note level, you cannot encrypt multiple notes at a time, since you cannot perform any function on any text in multiple notes simultaneously (for example, you cannot bold the text in three notes, you must individually bold text three separate times...). You must enter each note, select all the text you want encrypted, encrypt it, and move to the next note. If Evernote ever allows note- or notebook-level encryption, encrypting multiple notes could be a possibility, but until then....
  12. There is no way to "download an app in another app" on an iPad. The only place to download applications is from the App Store. Are you, by chance, trying to download this application from a website you've navigated to in your iPad's browser?
  13. You could use the custom paper feature by creating a scorecard in a program of your choice (or finding a paper scorecard you like). If you create one using your computer, export it as a jpg and send it to your iPad's camera roll (whatever your favourite way of doing this is. You can then import it using the "+" button in Penultimate's paper menu. If you have a paper one you want to use in Penultimate, you can use the paper function to import an image of it through the "+" button in Penultimate's paper menu. Penultimate does some "optimization" to make it work better as a background (this may or may not be what you need, but it happens automatically and you have no choice...) so your milage may vary.... More on this plus some specific instructions: https://evernote.com/contact/support/kb/#!/article/23185807
  14. Oh sure, there's an option in Mac EN (well hidden) to not use the Annotation Summary --- BUT IT DOESN'T WORK! No matter how you try and make sure that setting is set, there will ALWAYS be an annotation summary w/ any pdf that's been through Skitch. Sheesh. I have no problem disabling annotation summary in the annotation screen in Evernote for mac. Just tested it this second. 1) For a given PDF, select "Annotate PDF" 2) Create any annotation 3) Un-check "Include Annotation Summary" 4) close annotation window. Result: Annotated PDF w/o a summary. Is this not the behaviour you are seeing? I'm running the most recent public beta, so it is possible it had been an issue that is now resolved, but I've not had a problem in the past either.
  15. Posting four times doesn't make your point any stronger. As has been pointed out to you at least two other times, this can be disabled by un-checking the box at the bottom of the annotation screen (Mac) or in the context menu for the attachment (windows)
  16. Personally I like this feature a lot. It's a real dream for some of the major editing I do. But I'm glad to have the option because I don't always need it.
  17. I sometimes find this to be a problem too. One way I get around it is by using "related notes" in the clipper. Generally, this has helped me detect duplicates, though only after the fact. At least this way I can just go in and immediately delete the duplicated clip.
  18. Yes. The clipping in Evernote is completely separate. That's the beauty of the clipper. Any page or email you clip could be taken offline, but your clipping remains!
  19. If you are concerned about the legitimacy of the email, I suggest you contact support directly. This is a user forum so you aren't necessarily going to get a direct response from EN staff, though as I quoted above, staff do chime in.
  20. Here is an Evernote employee confirming the Evernote does request you verify your address. are you looking for something more specific?
  21. This is unrelated to two-factor verification. enabling two-factor is a fairly labour intensive process, you'll know if you're getting anywhere near there. This email verification also has nothing to do with whether you use email on your phone or not.... you can click "verify" from any device. If you access your email on your computer, just click verify there. The purpose is so that Evernote knows that it is a valid email address that you check. It doesn't care whether you access it from your phone, your computer, your friend's computer, or the public library.
  22. Yeah between what Boatguy is reporting and all of the "old version overwrote new version" problems, it seems like sync is having some big issues.
  23. This is very troubling indeed. I suspect it might really get bogged down when dealing with a large number of notes. My offline notebooks are generally small (usually 3-15 notes) and I don't encounter issues with one or two notebooks like that. It seems that at a certain point, Evernote gets clogged up... That needs some fixin'
  24. Looks like it was just re-introduced! http://blog.evernote.com/blog/2014/08/28/evernote-for-windows-update-adds-pdf-annotation/
  25. No problems here... there was a recent, major, update to the clipper for Safari, and I think for users who have Safari Extensions set to auto update, there's been a bit of turbulence. You can try the hotkey ` (a back tick, shares a key with a tilde ~) to see if that invokes the clipper. You can see if disabling and re-enabling the Web Clipper resolves the issue by going to: Safari>Preferences>Extensions>Evernote Web Clipper and un-tick the "Enable" box. Close safari (cmd-q) and open it again (just for good measure), then re-check the box to re-enable the clipper. If that doesn't work and you want to reinstall, in Safari, select: Safari>Preferences>Extensions>Evernote Web Clipper And tap "uninstall". Then, return to https://evernote.com/webclipper/ and download the clipper again. Double click the downloaded file to install the extensions.
