  1. 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.
  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. Yes. Evernote can much more rapidly push out patches through the direct download (from evernote.com), compared to the App Store, which requires individual approval. Because of this, the fixed version of evernote is available directly, but has not yet made it through the Mac App Store.
  4. Undo, as with most (or all...) mac applications is cmd-z.
  5. In fact, I don't think you even need to tap "more" to change notebooks, though you do in order to change tags/
  6. why not search: tag:portraits or tag:portraits tag:photography or tag:photography Do these not accomplish what you are trying to achieve?
  7. In the little pop down menu that emerges from the search field, you should have the option to save search, once saved you can drag it to the shortcuts area.
  8. 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.
  9. Shoe, You are correct, you are currently unable to create a new notebook within a stack. New notebooks always appear outside of a stack and require dragging. I agree, it would be nice to be able to right-click on a stack and create a new notebook right inside. That being said, notebook and stack creation is not likely to be a daily occurrence. For example, my structure is reasonable stable from week to week, month-to-month. Typically I only need to add new notebooks when a new project comes up or I have a new teaching obligation, so every 4 months or so. As such, whether such a task take
  10. I have never experienced this sort of problem.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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 task
  15. I understand your frustration, and a part of the issue if Evernote's ambition. They appear to really be into rapid development, in addition to being radically cross-platform. With this set of ambitions, the possibility of something breaking or of breaking something is very HIGH. 1) Every time a new feature (or even a bug fix) is rolled out, it could potentially cause a break somewhere else, even with extensive beta testing. The impact of a new feature will differ on each platform as well, and sometimes the outcome could be unexpected or unanticipated, or could be harder to fix than expected
  16. Just tried this on 10.9 with Evernote 5.4.4 and evernote notes are showing up in Spotlight.
  17. 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 complic
  18. 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!
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. Ha! There's a certain humorous irony in a problem with your calendar subscription "fixing" your evernote name suggestion problem....
  22. 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 pl
  23. No problem Mark. Fortunately these forums ARE read by Evernote staff, if you take a minute to drop into a few other posts you'll see them identified by the big green badge (not to be mistaken for the evangelists, who are NOT employees). So you are not wrong at all! In many cases evernote staff will read posts but may not reply if they have nothing to say. In a case like this I don't expect they will respond because they aren't going to reveal there development plan.
