  1. The use of quotes to enclose an exact phrase is pretty standard issue behaviour. That is interoperated by most application, including evernote (when it is working properly) as saying: "find the exact phrase". if you just enter the words, without quotes, you are asking evernote to: "find content that have any of these words in any order" So if you don't want to search for the exact phrase, don't enclose it in quotes. That should solve your issue. There are plenty of other applications. I find the search in Evernote to be fairly robust and user friendly. DEVONThink has a more sophisticate

  3. Survived by a hair! Now its double-digit temperatures (celsius, that is) and blue skies! Hope things are well for you!
  4. A further option is simply to leave the broader organizational structure as it is (or modified using the suggestions above as you see fit), but to also get the UW stuff out of the way visually. I typically do this for older stuff that is not really relevant on a regular basis. In this case I prefix the notebook or stack with a "z". I don't use a hierarchy so unlike you I have stacks available so I have a stack of old notebooks that are not in active use (e.g., old coursework, previous research material, etc). This stack is called "zArchive". It sits at the bottom of my notebook list, nice and
  5. Official word from staff would definitely be ideal. That being said, I just can't see dropbox-like access materializing because of the way Evernote stores your data and the general incompatibility with Apple's CloudKit API. Evernote is NOT a filesystem in the sky like Dropbox and so, therefore, is a much different beast to integrate with (and it is largely on the third-party to integrate with Evernote using Evernote's APIs and not the other way around). This is one of the reasons I have transitioned my work away from Evernote.
  6. I don't know what "fall is past" means in this context. I don't think Evernote had made any promises to integrate with Office (nor did Microsoft make promises to integrate Office with Evernote). While both Microsoft and Evernote are taking advantage of iOS 8's extension features, It looks like neither Evernote nor Microsoft have used iOS 8's sharing extensions in a way that allows them to communicate seamlessly. I don't foresee there being many changes unless Microsoft uses Evernote's API to access files, but I can't see them doing that any time soon. Nor do I see Evernote switching to u
  7. Vastly different solutions to very different problems. Saferoom is capable of encrypting the entire contents of a note, both the text you write and the attachments you add. This means you could have a reasonably active note that you are modifying fairly regularly that is also zero-knowledge encrypted. Saferoom also works on iOS and Mac and Windows (perhaps Android?). You can access your encrypted content on any of those devices. Encrypted PDFs work well for, well, safeguarding PDF content. This content, however, is not easily modifiable, so this solution applies primarily to content you are
  8. There is a third-party application that should be available soon to help alleviate the problem. https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/81336-saferoom-zero-knowledge-encryption-for-evernote-and-more/ I've been beta-testing Saferoom for Mac and iOS, and it seems to do an admirable job of encrypting, though it comes with some MASSIVE trade-offs, and it is not exactly a simple application to use. The trade-offs largely are a result not of Saferoom's shortcomings, but because Evernote was simply not designed to have fully zero-knowledge-encrypted data within it. That being said, for people who
  9. Don't they already have social media integrations? You seem to have stuck around longer than you intended Personally, I liked the original anti-social network approach to building an external brain. I don't collaborate with Evernote. I don't do the Facebook. I don't tweet my notes. Some of us have questioned the path Evernote embarked on when it started adding all of this sharing stuff. However, judging by the people I see around me every day, the sharing is probably helping them grow the user base, so we may need to just put up with it. The more revenue Evernote has, the more potential ther
  10. Glad my advice was helpful for at least one instance of this. However, as of a few versions ago (around their iOS 8 optimized version was released), Evernote has removed the browser from the application. Are you getting stuck in some other part of Evernote?
  11. FYI: Moderators are just regular users who get the "moderator" title because they have posted more than 300 times, so the title really has no bearing on the things they talk about (the people in the 300+ category are pretty split between being very enthusiastic about EN and very critical of EN). As others have pointed out, the experience of honestly losing data into the ether is pretty rare, especially the instances that occurred totally independent of user error. People's comments about the rarity of the occurrence aren't intended to be dismissive. It is a shame that it isn't working well
  12. That sounds like a bug if the popup is persistent. Once that is cleared up, I don't imagine Work Chat will be in your way too much. I haven't needed to share anything since Work Chat was released, so honestly, I don't even notice that it is there. I have yet to see it interfere with my workflow (popups aside). A lot of people are complaining about WC and want it disabled, but none seem to be able to clearly articulate why they feel that way (other than saying "because I just do"). I'd be very interested to hear if/how Work Chat interferes with your flow (aside from popups, which are defin
  13. Previously, I have used zotero to manage references, but kept all of my reading notes in Evernote. I pasted Evernote note links into the Zotero entry for a given reading so that I could easily select a reference in Zotero and its one click to view the notes I have for it in Evernote. This has been (and still is, except I've migrated my reading notes, and all of my work stuff, to a different program) one of the most effective way for me to do things. You could use almost any reference manager other than Zotero. This same workflow would work with Mendeley, Refworks, EndNote, Papers, and pr
  14. More details. What operating system, what version of the Evernote application, or was it the web?
  15. I'd suggest you submit a support ticket to alert Evernote about this bug. You'll know if a change to the clipper has been made because it will likely be part of an Evernote application update for your iOS device. No app update, no update to the clipper.
  16. Popups should only ever appear once per install (if you reinstall the app, you'll be subject to a barrage of popups again). Aside from the icon in the toolbar, Work Chat shouldn't really even be in your way if you never need it. It doesn't consume additional resources and aside from the (usually) one-time popup, it shouldn't really be something you ever notice. Are you seeing Work Chat use up resources or prevent you from doing what you normally do? Perhaps I've missed something in my day-to-day use.
  17. I have other far more pressing things that will ruin my day. I just ignore the button and the feature and move on. After all, it doesn't occupy additional computer resources and it doesn't do anything unless you tell it to, so, no impact to the system or my workflow (except for a the pixels devoted to displaying the button in the vexingly non-configurable toolbar). It completely changed the way notes are shared is what it did. Has had a major impact on our business, so in fact it does matter. All of the old ways of sharing notes still exist. You can email notes to anyone (Note>more
  18. I think the new Web Beta demonstrates that Evernote is into experimenting with these types of dynamic interface elements. Lots of things are fading/sliding in and out of view based on user input. Applied smartly (I think it is applied a bit heavy-handedly in the Web Beta), such as you are suggesting, it could be really good and help free up some space, especially for users on small displays or who split screen. That being said, Evernote has done little more than add a few buttons and coats of paint to the Mac interface in the last several years. I suspect if anything like you are suggesting
  19. The screenshot you are posting is from the sidebar. You cannot modify the organization of notebooks from the sidebar. Try clicking on "Notebooks" (which should be above the list of notebooks in the sidebar) to show a list of your notebooks in the main window, then right-click on any given notebook, or you can also drag and drop notebooks into/out of stacks.
  20. 1) You can select Evernote>About Evernote and press the option key to reveal a button to "Open Database Folder" 2) if you are using the direct download version (not the App Store version) you should find your database in ~/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote/Accounts/www.evernote.com
  21. Just tested this with 6.0.3 (released in the last 24hrs). No problems creating a saved search and dragging it to the shortcut area.
  22. What kind of notes? I tried about 15 notes and couldn't find any where "Email Note" was greyed out.
  23. The PDF needs to contain text (not just an image of text). You need a dedicated program to produce PDFs that contain text (or convert existing pdfs). I believe PDF Pen and Prizm are two applications for iOS and Mac, and of course Adobe Acrobat if you feel like taking out a loan. (Note: Evernote does perform OCR on images, and PDFs that contain images of text, but this is not the same as actually creating a PDF that contains text, and does not create selectable text)
  24. If you are looking for a service that automatically parses the contents of a receipt, at least a few were mentioned earlier in this topic (Expensify would be one). Evernote does not perform this highly specialized task unfortunately.
