    EF does "Index" your files:  http://c-command.com/eaglefiler/help/search-everything

    It works quite well.

    I am not sure what the other artificial intelligence advantages are that you mention, but EF works great for my needs, without the continued headaches seen with EN.

    I guess I am lucky in that I don't need to access my files remotely all the time, and have the other needs you have.  I like my simple life!  It is quite nice!

     

     

     

    JM,

    I think you should also take a look at EagleFiler, by C-Command Software:  https://c-command.com (Mac based only)

     

    EagleFiler can do all that DT and EN can do, without the cloud, with the Encryption, can upload to any cloud of your choice for mobile use, etc.  EF has been a life saver for me in going completely paperless.  I can tell you are excited about DT, which is a nice product.  However, I have found EF to be quite a bit simpler, easy to use, with great tools.  The EF web clipper is fantastic as well.

     

    Good Luck!

    EF looks interesting and certainly shares some similarities with DT (Just as Evernote does). However, as far as I can tell there is none of the Artificial Intelligence in EF that DT has, which has become critical to my workflow. While EF is a bit less expensive and includes PDFPen OCR, PDFPen has routinely performed with less accuracy than ABBYY OCR that is included with DEVONThink Pro Office, which I use. 

     

    EF looks like a great alternative for some people who aren't in need of some of the more complexity-inducing features in DEVONThink. Unfortunately I need those complexity-inducing features. 

     

    Ah, and upon closer inspection, it looks as though EF doesn't support "Indexing" (the term DEVONThink uses for referencing files in place in the original file system). My DEVONThink Pro Office content are a mix of imported and indexed items. Not having the option to "index" files in place is a deal breaker for me. 

     

     

    Just a note that while it does "index" the files in that it maintains an index, from what you've linked to there I understand that the files it indexes are in the EF Library, specifically, and must reside within that library file on the hard disk.  In other words, it "indexes" in the true sense of the word, but it doesn't appear to allow you to reference a file in an arbitrary directory on your computer. DT allows you to reference a directory on your computer's hard drive, which it treats as if it were part of its own database or library. This means you can store your files in any directory you want, such as if you need to leave them in a shared Dropbox folder (or any Dropbox folder!), but still use DT to search, categorize, retrieve, and use the AI to organize or figure out where to put new files. 

     

    Anyway, EF looks like a great application. 


  2. Any photo will be "OCRd" by Evernote. Those images you have in your camera roll could just be attached to a note and they will become searchable within Evernote. The optimizations you have seen applied to other photos would likely increase the accuracy of the OCR, but it isn't necessary per se. 

     

    I use quotes on OCR because it isn't exactly like OCR in the way that we might think (a la ABBYY or Adobe), as it doesn't embed a layer of text in the image that follows the file around. Take the image out, or open it in preview, and it is no longer searchable.

  3. I just ran across this thread about DT that I'm posting here for reference:

     

    sharing evernote to devonthink

    I should point out that while importing your evernote content to DT is straightforward (in DT File>Import>...:

    https://www.evernote.com/l/ABlB8E5iXltLTqn73Vdf1Hg4p6YYEiXCdU0

     

    it is not easy to index Evernote content in DT:

    http://forum.devontechnologies.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=19968

     

    But honestly, I would HATE it if my Evernote content was indexed by DT. The import feature is great, and worked well as I moved a segment of my Evernote stuff to DT in a one time operation. But the reason I use both Evernote and DT is because they do different things better. If my Evernote stuff was indexed by DT, it would likely just clutter things up and make things difficult to find and keep track of. 

     

    So, it isn't really ideal to try and share content between evernote and DT, indeed you should just commit you content to one or the other depending on which serves your needs best. 

     

    The stuff I have in Evernote is there because Evernote handles that stuff perfectly, and most of it is shared stuff. I wouldn't want it cluttering up my meticulously organized DT nor would I ever really have a need to access my Evernote stuff though DT.

  4. Also, ensure that your iOS device is

    1) On a good wireless or cellular network.

    2) If you are on cellular (the screenshot indicates that you are on cellular not wireless), ensure that, in Evernote's settings you allow syncing on cellular, and you allow Evernote to use cellular data in iOS's Settings app.

     

    Since complete note contents are not permanently stored locally on your iOS device, if Evernote is unable to access servers (because you are not connected to a network, or you've blocked cellular access and aren't on WIFI), it can't load content.

  6. The Evernote forum seems nice to me. I'd be interested in hearing what exactly is wrong with it.

    DEVONthink is pretty amazing. I've written about it a little on my blog.

    http://www.christopher-mayo.com/?p=2237

    Is it an Evernote replacement? Maybe. But, only if you work exclusively on Macs and mobile isn't all that important for you. The mobile app is adequate (for my needs), and a new version is on the way (no delivery date yet), but I think it is fair to say that Evernote dominates the multi-platform, mobile space right now. DT does not exist on Windows and is extremely unlikely to ever make its way there.

    Echoing JM, your DT post is great, and definitely helped me get started with DEVONThink. 

     

    In my opinion, DEVONThink is not an outright one-to-one replacement for Evernote in a broad sense. Ultimately it depends on what a user was using Evernote for in the first place. It hasn't "replaced" Evernote for me. There came a point where I was no longer able to continue storing work-related  content in Evernote. Because of that DEVONThink has taken over that role and does it many, many times better than Evernote ever did. Even if I could still use Evernote for work, I'd probably choose not to because of how much better DEVONThink works for me in this context.

     

    However, when it comes to a lot of household management things, my partner and I still use Evernote because of how straightforward capturing and sharing is. This is where Evernote truly shines in my day-to-day, and why it remains indispensable. So, while I now spend about 75% of my time (100% of my work time) in DEVONThink, the 25% of my time spent in Evernote dealing with household stuff and cooking and whatnot, is a long way away from being replaced by DEVONThink or anything else.

  7. I had no problem reading the image you posted. You didn't provide any details about what happened when you clicked the button. For all I knew (and all I assumed), it would take you to a webpage that had some description of your recent activity so that you could say all was good. 

     

    The hijacking part was largely speculation on my end, and thinking of it, it no longer makes a great deal of sense since they have other means for allowing users to deal with that type of issue. Honestly I suspect that this is more a gaff on Evernote's end being a bit over-cautious (accidentally or otherwise) by protecting themselves after switching to the unlimited upload scheme. 

     

    Posting here was a good plan because at least this way staff may see it and can hopefully adjust their warning accordingly (and hopefully be a little less heavy-handed with handing out these warnings!). 


  8. Stack:Notebook:Note ... Correct? I'm new...

     

    This is correct. 

    There is discussion in this exact thread about how you can make some hierarchy within tags, but that is limited too. Evernote's taxonomical scheme is generally considered to be flat, that is, largely non-hierarchical and minimally mutually-exclusive. That doesn't work for all people's workflows or all types of data, but it can work for most. In many cases it takes a lotto tim a(and a bit of persistence) to get accustomed to the flat taxonomy. 

     

    You can do more with tags than just search. For example, you could use a single notebook and use the tag view to browse for content. If you have lots of tags this could be cumbersome (and may also point to careless use of tags). This is a pretty radical scheme though. 

     

    You can also use tags to compliment your other organizational schemes. For example, I use a "receipt" tag. Sometimes I want to look only at personal receipts. If I were to search

     

    tag:receipt

     

    I'd get ALL my receipts from household, personal, and work. I want to see only personal so I search:

     

    Notebook:personal tag:receipt

     

    Alternatively, lets say I want to look for all of the work receipts I have submitted but have not ben reimbursed for:

    stack:.Work tag:receipt tag:submitted

     

    This searches my work stack (i have just a couple notebooks in there related to two different work contexts), and looks for notes I have tagged "receipt" and "submitted", which I use to indicate any expense I have submitted to have reimbursed. Lets say I was recently reibumrsed for all of those outstanding recieipts, I'd now change the tag to "receipts" and "reimbursed". 

     

     

    You can also sort notes by tag in List view. You could create a set of alphabetically organized tags or tags prefixed with symbols that you could apply to notes in a specific notebook which is always sorted by tag to use that as a way of ordering notes in a notebook. 

     

    But, long story short: Evernote is not intended for mutually exclusive hierarchical taxonomic schemes, it is intended for a largely flat scheme. This is either something you'll have to learn to work with and take advantage of, or it isn't the right system for you. Thankfully this community is filled with discussion about how to work most effectively with the organizational tools (stacks, notebooks, tags, titles) Evernote gives to you. 


  9. It looks like since Evernote now allows premium users to upload unlimited content, they want to make sure that they avoid intentional or unintentional abuse. 

     

    It seems like Evernote detected a significant spurt of uploads from your account and just wants to make sure that some of the recent activity actually came from you and that you actually intended it, and that there isn't 1) someone who has hijacked your account, or 2) some type of error that has resulted in you inadvertently uploading a whole pile of new content. 

     

    Why would you not want to confirm the activity? I get the sense that this is evernote asking "is this you and did you mean to do this?". If you say yes, it'll probably all be fine. 

    I have seen other posts about similar experiences and my suspicion is that since this transition to unlimited is very new for Evernote they are being a bit (overly) cautious, or their algorithms for intervening in potential mis-use are not optimized yet and being a bit trigger happy. 

     

    A couple notes:

    1) I don't know if Evernote servers can distinguish between usage coming from Penultimate or from any of the Evernote clients (or if it can, it isn't being asked to do so for the purposes of this message). The fact that the penultimate app presented this message might just be because you recently uploaded a lot f stuff using a different evernote client, and Penultimate happened to be the messenger because it was the currently in-use app, NOT because the usage actually comes from Penultimate. 

     

    2) If you made a lot of changes to a lot of large documents in any Evernote client; if you add a whole pile of new notes; if you move a bunch of stuff between accounts; if you restore files from a backup database; if you add an evernote archive (.enex) file, these will all trigger a massive upload to the server (well, massive depending on how many notes have been changed). For example, If you added a single highlight each to 4 PDFs that are 10mb, each, you'd have a 40mb upload right there since one highlight requires that you upload the ENTIRE 10mb pdf all over again. Something like that is fairly easy to do and:

     

    3) It is possible that what you did wasn't terribly abnormal in terms of your regular use of the app, but it set off an alarm bell somewhere because Evernote's newly implemented mis-use prevention is a bit jumpy. 

     

    4) The part about service disruptions is a bit odd but I think it is just trying to tell users that, "hey, don't toss your entire Applications folder into Evernote in one go just because you have unlimited uploads!"

    This has driven me mad ever since I started with Evernote [on a Mac]. Is there any other app which does not search for the full string as typed when it is in double quote?

     

    Is there any way of forcing compliance the people know of?

     

    Cheers, Colin

    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 sophisticated search features set, though it is a little less elegant. If retrieval is a very important thing to you you could consider comparing those two. 

     

     

     

    I think you've misunderstood. The problem we are having is that Evernote does not search for the exact phrase within double quotes, as nearly every other application would.

     

    Ah, see, if you look at the words of the user I quoted, you'll see that s/he has phrased it in an extremely confusing manner that is easily misunderstood. Having re-read it, I now understand that s/he is actually posing a hypothetical question. 

     

    I understand the search problem (as demonstrated by my much, much earlier post), however, I misunderstood the quoted poster's words (irrespective of the existence of a problem with Evernote's search). 

     

    Cheers


  11. As you probably know you can include certain criteria, for example, you could narrow a search to a specific tag, like:

    tag:pending <query>

    or

    tag:pending tag:clients <query>

    which would search for all notes tagged "pending" for whatever your search query is. 

    Or you could search within a specific notebook:

    notebook:"notebook name" <query>

    The search syntax for Evernote allows a negation for most operators, for example if you want to exclude everything tagged with "completed", you would search

    -tag:completed <query>

    So, you'd be searching everything but notes tagged with "completed". 

     

    Unfortunately, and frustratingly, you cannot apply the same thing to stacks. You could not, for instance, search:

    -stack:archive <query>

    and get meaningful results. 

     

    What's even more frustrating is that unlike with other operators like tags, you can't use multiple include criteria, so you could, for example include every stack except your archive like this:

    stack:"stack a" stack:"stack b" stack:"stack c" <query>

    because it doesn't recognize that either. 

     

     

    So, I think the only workaround I can see is that in addition to having the Archive stack, you also tag every single note in that stack with a tag such as "archive". You'll have to periodically apply the tag as you add new things to your archive, which is fairly straightforward. Select the archive stack to display every note in every notebook in the archive stack. Select a single note, press cmd-a/ctrl-a, add the tag. 

     

    this way you can exclude your Archive stack indirectly by excluding the archive tag. So you'd search:

    -tag:archive <query>

    Thus by tagging everything in your archive stack with the archive tag you can effectively and indirectly exclude your archive stag by exclugind the archive tag. 

    A bit roundabout, but pretty quick to implement.

  13. It doesn't appear to be possible to tag newly clipped items using the iOS extension, nor is is possible to add a comment/remark at the time of clipping. Unfortunately you'll have to enter the evernote application itself and do your tagging and commenting there. I don't know enough about how extensions work to speculate about whether it would even be possible for Evernote to add the ability to tag upon clipping (e.g., there may be limitations in iOS that prevent these things from being implemented). But if it is possible, I'd welcome the change, too.

  14. 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 out of the way, and when I'm done with a given notebook, I just toss it in to zArchive and be done with it. 

     

    So, in addition to some of the organizational techniques suggested above, which are all very good, you can also try using prefixes to move things visually out of the way. 

     

    The other thing to consider is how relevant your UW stacks are now. You say you have 1 stack per semester. Is the "semester" information really relevant at this point? So I envision something like this (correct me if I am wrong)

     

    SEMESTER 1 (STACK)

       Course A (notebook)

       Course B

       Course C

       Course D

       Course E

    SEMESTER 2 

       Course F

       Course G

       Course H

       Course I

       Course J

    and so on.

     

    I wonder how important those semester stacks are for long-term storage and retrieval of your old course material. Do you need to know whether POLI141 was in semester 2 or semester 4 when you revisit it next year looking for that note about neoliberalism? Will you know to go to the semester 5 stack for PSYC320 notes when you go looking for them? Will you even remember that PSYCH320 was in semester 5?

     

    As I see it, based on my (mis?)understanding of your current organization, your se of stacks may have been important while you were actively contributing to those notebooks, but since you are moving on and like only rarely retrieving information from those notebooks, you might be better off doing something along these lines:

     

    zUNIVERSITY OF WATERLOO (STACK)

       Course A (notebook)

       Course B

       Course C

       Course D

       Course E

      Course F

       Course G

       Course H

       Course I

       Course J

     

    Personally I think it would be highly unlikely for semester information to assist in retrieval, and in fact it could inhibit it as you try and remember which course was in which semester. It also isn't likely to help in search (Which is one of the major benefits of stacks in the first place). Odds are low that you will need to query a specific semester ('hmmm did I wrote about gravity in Semester 3, or 6? Lets try Stack:"semester 1" gravity').

    I suppose as I see it based on my (mis?)understanding of your organization, semester information was relevant, but is no longer likely to be terribly helpful for long term storage & retrieval. You could, rather easily, select all the notes in a given semester stack (e.g, select every note in Semester 1) and apply a tag of "Semester 1" so that you at least have the same info as before, it is still targetable in search, but you gain back Stacks for archiving purposes. 


  15. Thanks for the update Scott.  The "fall is past" comment referenced the iOS 8, which will be released this fall, makes major changes to this, so many of these headaches will disappear come fall comment above.  

     

    If I have a Word doc in Dropbox, it seamlessly opens in the MS Word app, allows me to edit and saves back to Dropbox.  Was just hoping to have the same functionality with 3rd party apps within Evernote, hence the comment.  Maybe someone from Evernote can chime in.

    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. 


  16. I became a paying subscriber in no small part due to the enticement of Presentation mode.  Do I understand now that this thing of having each "slide" start with the title smack dab in the middle of the page with useless whitespace above it is just something I have to live with?  Really?  Paaleeeezzzz tell me this has been fixed.

    Just tested a bunch of notes (none were explicitly intended to be presentations, but they did reflect a wide variety of content and formatting). All of them seemed to have the title (or the line taken to be the title) near the top, in the top 1/4 for sure. 

    Obviously your best bet is to try it yourself rather than take someone else's word, but from what I can see, the title no longer appears smack in the middle of the screen. 


  17. 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 using third-party service like Dropbox or iCloud drive for sync (which Word would have access to). So, no updates here.


  18. While it is, perhaps, a bit puzzling that they are duplicating a lot of features between the core and standalone apps, having scannable as a standalone application does mean that you can use it to scan things you don't intend to send to Evernote, or even if you aren't an Evernote user at all. This is a fairly big advantage for me since I use Evernote only for a subset of my needs, often scanning things for use in other applications. The flexibility offered by having scannable as a standalone option is welcomed, not the least because its a pretty damned good scanner (though it is not actually my go-to scanner). 

     

    That being said, some of the product-related decisions really do make Evernote's product development trajectory look somewhat confused and uncertain, from an outsider's perspective at least....

  19. Thanks for the advice. I checked the web view, and it shows less than 2MB used in April. The usage bar shows the 2MB in dark blue, but has 15MB and 15MB in other shades. Should have 58MB free of my 60MB/month quota, right?

     

    Could it be that as I was using up my "monthly" quota that I was wrong in thinking that my usage cycle ended on 3/31?

    There are 16 days in cycle, which indicates that it's a calendar cycle.

     

    Is there such a thing as tech support to escalate to?

    Since you are a free user you have very limited options for official technical support. You can always submit a ticket at the link in my signature, but the help you get, if any, will likely be limited, and won't be prompt. 

     

    There is more troubleshooting you can do. How is your Evernote Trash notebooks on these devices? If I am not mistaken, the quota as displayed on your desktop (at least, if not other devices) also considers what could be uploaded, such as if you had a large item in the trash that had never been uploaded to the servers (e.g., you created it and deleted it before it could synchronize, such as if you accidentally dragged a very large file to Evernote then deleted the note it ended up attached to immediately). In this instance, you could potentially restore the item from trash to a synced notebook, subsequently uploading it. Because of this, it gets displayed on that device against your quote even though it hasn't actually used your quota, just because the potential exists. 

     

    So, if you can swing it (I rarely if ever have deleted the contents of my evernote trash), consider deleting the contents of your Evernote trash on your desktop client. You might consider just sorting your trash by note size (enter the trash, switch to list view, add the "size" column if needed, then click the size column to sort by size) and just delete any large files.


  20. @Scott:

     

    Thanks for sharing your use of Saferoom.

    How would you compare using Saferoom to using encrypted PDFs in Evernote?

    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 not actively editing. Encrypted PDFs can also trip up some mobile devices, or some apps on some mobile devices, which makes it potentially a bit unreliable for ensuring you have access on all of your devices. 

     

     

    It really depends on your needs. Encrypted PDFs are pretty easy to create and solve a very specific problem well. Saferoom works well for encrypting totally arbitrary content that you may be actively modifying, but it is a bit clunky.

  21.  

    I have EN installed at home and my office. What freaks me out is that someone at work can easily dismount the hard drive, attach it to another PC and just copy the whole EN database, or just reboot the machine from a USB stick and copy all the EN data.

     

    I could maybe use something like bitlocker or other hard drive encryption but in reality this would be overkill. Most of the time it is also impossible to use hard drive encryption due to work policy where you don't have authorization or control over these kind of changes.

     

    An option to encrypt a notebook would be extremely welcome in this cases. LastPass encrypts the whole local database and is also fully searchable so I really don't understand why cannot Evernote do something like this. I will gladly pay for premium access just for this feature.

     

    I will be contacting support for letting them know. There are many users that want this.

     

    There is a third-party application that should be available soon to help alleviate the problem.

    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 desperately need to store confidential information in Evernote and are unable to use other options that exist because of finances or workflow constraints, Saferoom is deficiently a great option. 

     

    I store my confidential information (well, its actually other people's confidential information), in a different program, Everything I store in Evernote is largely inconsequential if it leaks, so I'm not sure if I will have to rely on Saferoom a great deal, but it has definitely been fun to beta test.

    People here are greatly exaggerating how Work Chat is making their lives miserable.  I'd like the option to turn it off, but give me a break.  You act like it's attempting to eat the food out of your refrigerator.  That being said, the content in my Evernote is private and I have almost no use for sharing my notes.  I'll occasionally email a note, but Work Chat does not interfere with that in any way.  

     

    I'm a premium Evernote user and absolutely love it, but the day they step beyond the Work Chat icon add Facebook/Twitter integration, I'm gone.  I don't want that social media nonsense polluting my valuable notes.

    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 there is for it to meet the needs of private, external brain users as well.

     

     

     

    If Facebook/Twitter nonsense is currently integrated, it's well hidden and buried - nothing like the silly Work Chat icon that nobody uses.

     

    Share>Post Public Link To>Twitter/Facebook/LinkedIn. 

     

    Never ever have I used that feature.

  23. Notes should appear on all devices, and this should happen fairly swiftly. If you are noticing discrepancies, it may be due to a sync error on one of the devices. It sounds like Windows<-->Web works, so it seems like the issue lies with the iPhone. 

     

    Are you sure you have logged in to the same account on Windows, Web, and iPhone? Double check. 

     

    Do notes you create on your iPhone show up on the Web/Windows?
