  1. I have never experienced this sort of problem.
  2. One of the main reasons why neither company has made a public statement about "issues" with the Jot Script is that it is not clear that there are "issues" with it. That is, it is not clear exactly if there is some widespread problem that might indicate a fundamental design flaw in the Jot Script that deserves a press release and product recall. I am sure that Evernote and Adonit will publicly shame themselves if they find there really is a flaw in the design of the unit. Until then, open a support ticket.
  3. More than likely, yes. Applications are not able to overwrite a user's privacy settings, such as access to contacts, so you'll have to go in and grant it access again.
  4. You'll know because Evernote will release an update for the application. They may or may not explicitly mention this issue as FIXED in the release notes.
  5. I agree, at some point a more sophisticated and flexible integration with Penultimate, for example, would be fantastic.
  6. This works for bulleted lists on Mac and there are dedicated keys above the keyboard on iOS. Unfortunately there does not seem to be a way to do a "block quote" style indent or a paragraph, that is, indent a passage without a bullet.
  7. I have only noticed this using the business card scanner, but yes, it crashes almost every other time I try to scan a card.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!)
  10. You may want to contact the developer of Everclip for support, as it is not an Evernote product. but there may be a user here that may know.
  11. 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.....
  12. 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.
  13. 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. It may also require that other clients on different platforms also be modified to accommodate a fix in another client. 2) In addition to Evernote breaking thing themselves is the possibility that an update to any of the supported OSs could break something. Of course there are developer previews for most OSs, think of all the supported platforms and the development schedule of each platform, officially annual for iOS and OSX, something around annual for Android and Windows, none of these occurring at the same time. This means for any given platform, a new release could break something that Evernote has to chase down while actively maintaining all other clients, ensuring a fix on one client doesn't create issues on another, updating other clients to accommodate the fix on the first, all while pursuing new features and fixing the problems they create for themselves with issue (1) above. This usually means that, when all clients are considered, they are almost perpetually hunting down bugs on one platform or another, many of which are the result of changes made to the host OS/Platform, and which may not be easily fixed during the developer preview period. This is not to excuse Evernote. Indeed there have been a number of gaffs that really make you wonder how they even made it out the door. But Evernote is ambitious and we are choosing to use (and pay for) the product and service of a pretty ambitious company, which means we choose to go along for the ride and hope our own needs don't get disrupted too badly along the way. Perhaps it would be nice if Evernote focused solely on stability and bug fixes, but when you look at the number of posts in these forums requesting features, a whole new set of users would rise up. Catch 22?
  14. Just tried this on 10.9 with Evernote 5.4.4 and evernote notes are showing up in Spotlight.
  15. 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!
  16. 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!
  17. 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 different stack from the project notebooks? Perhaps the biggest issue is, what happens if you add Polly to the group, but she's only involved in Project A and Project C? Then you'd have t o independently share just those notebooks with her and NOT the stack. So everyone else gets the stack but Polly gets individual notebooks. But then Lauren gets added and she's Project B only at first, but then joint projects A and C. So what do you do with Polly? Share each individual notebook, or do you revoke access to Project B then invite her to the stack? Too complicated for little benefit. If your organization is this complex, the additional features of Evernote Business may be worthwhile.
  18. 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
  19. Ha! There's a certain humorous irony in a problem with your calendar subscription "fixing" your evernote name suggestion problem....
  20. 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 planning committee meeting! However, Evernote is not smart enough to know that "Overcast 4C/1C in St. Petersburg" is not the same as "party planning committee meeting". I think a setting that allows the user to select calendar, location or both as sources for suggestions would definitely be helpful. Do you use that weather calendar on iOS at all? Or is it mainly something you use on your desktop? For the moment, until/if Evernote decides to improve this feature, you may consider un-ticking that weather calendar from your iOS device's calendar settings, which should prevent Evernote from interpreting that event as important (but also preventing you from seeing it on your iOS calendar...).
  21. 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.
  22. Well, I'm not ducking anything because I am just a normal user like yourself. I accept that you have an unfulfilled need and I am not justifying Evernote's decisions. I'm here to talk with you as one user to another, hoping to give you a hand, perhaps learn a bit about what you are doing and what you need, perhaps I have some insight as a fellow user, perhaps I'll learn something from you too (much of how I use Evernote comes from learning from others indirectly). Evernote doesn't generally publicize their timeline and their development goals, so there is no way for anyone to answer the question you pose at the end of your post. We'll just have to wait and see. Now, if you aren't interested in sharing some of your needs and ideas, or perhaps talking about why the alternatives don't work for you (because you are aware and have tried all of them? Every single one?) then farewell and good luck. If you are interested in some "shop talk" with a fellow user, then I'm happy to talk and share too.
  23. Well, I mentioned Word but I really meant any program. My point was that if that link is treated like a URL (such as in Calendar or Google Calendar), it opens evernote without a problem. If the program in question does not understand it as URL like any other then yeah, I guess it isn't too helpful. Unfortunately there is no native way to browse notes without opening the application. One option, however, would be to check out the workflows available for Alfred's (With the Powerpack), there are a number of workflows that allow you to search Evernote and get realtime results. You won't get much beyond the name of the note in the results so if you need more you'll have to accept the result which would open Evernote. http://www.alfredapp.com/powerpack/ But why the reluctance to leave evernote running? Evernote is not the biggest resource hog and most computers have no problem functioning with Evernote running. You can do exactly what you are wanting to do (e.g., quickly search for and view a note) through the app itself.
  24. Ok so I am not clear on what it is you are asking. You have a few important notes that you need regular and easy access to from several devices. You want CENTRAL storage and you don't want duplicates. Does Everynote's syncing feature, which syncs all of your notes to their servers so the can be accessed from any desktop and web browser not fit the bill? You can even create shortcuts in Evernote's sidebar to those important notes, and those shortcut preferences are then synced across (most) devices as well as the web interface. Can you provide more information about the problem and your specific needs? One thing you can also do is right-click/ctrl-click any note and select 'Copy note link'. This will copy a link that looks like evernote:///view/2315313/s25/212312d12326-r1251123-489b-8bb3-81eaf10076f2/12312d12314-d216-489b-8bb3-81eaf42342123/ You can paste this link into Apple's Calendar application, or google calendar, or a word document, or whatever. Clicking on this link on any Mac or iOS device (and probably others) will then launch the evernote application and bring forward that note.
