    Working with shared notebooks

    I have TWO Master Notes in EACH of my shared Notebooks. e.g. inside a folder for Financial, I have a Note called "Master Note Financial 1", and it has the first alphabetical half of all my Tags added to it. Then I have "Master Note Financial 2", and it has the LAST alphabetical half of all my Tags added to it. Sync. Any time my wife wants to create a Note in my Financial folder, she can add any of my Tags, because they have all been used on those two Master Notes, and thus are available to her to use. I run about 8 different Notebooks for my system, and so yes, I have a Master Note 1 & 2 in each of those Folders. The only trick is to remember to add a new Tag to those Master Notes when I decide to make a new one. Trying to be clever and help me, I made all my Master Notes have a Creation Date of 1900, so they always show at the bottom of my Notes list, so I can quickly scroll to the bottom, Control+click all the "1" or "2" notes and then collectively add that new Tag to them. Easy Peasy, once you wrap your brain around it!
  2. Maybe "Dave" has a nest of Tags. He could name his nest "Dave" and then all of his Tags go under that. You then would do the same thing, if sharing your Tags back with him. Then, maybe, just his Parent Tag shows in your list, and if you needed to see the others you could expand the list? Haven't tested that though, just a thought.

    Working with shared notebooks

    Hi there, been a while since you posted this, but just in case... I also found Tag limitations, and with other's testing, I now use this fix... My wife, who I share Notebooks and Notes with, can only create new Notes and Tag them with MY Tags, if the Tags are already used in that Notebook. So I have in each shared Notebook a Note called Master, and that Note, while empty, has every Tag I have tagged on it. Now because it is part of the Notes I share with my wife, she can use any of my Tags. However, there is a limit if 100 Tags per Note, and I have more than that. Fix? Master 1 and a Master 2 Note in each Notebook. Master 1 has Tags from the first 13 letters of the alphabet, Master 2 has the last 13. Whenever I add a new Tag (and yes, I have to keep this in the back of my mind all the time) I select all the Master 1 or 2 Notes, depending on the first letter of the Tag, then collectively Tag those Notes with the new Tag. Hard to find those Master Notes all the time? No... because I changed their Creation Date to 01/01/1900 so they always show at the bottom of my list of Notes. Now every single Tag I have is on one of two Notes in every Notebook I share with my wife, and she can now email anything she wishes to my account, with the appropriate @notebook and #tag names in the Subject line, and it works! It would be so much easier if Evernote just removed the Tag limits on a Note, but this fix works. Hope it helps you too.

    ios Penultimate 5.0 version

    I agree with the other Users here. Wrist guard feature, works for a while, then I wonder if my Jot Pro stylus isn't touching the screen - no input, so I have to push harder for it to register. Quite weird. In addition - finally, this update has the zoom feature. However, it only has one very close level. It's either zoomed fully in or not at all, so you can't set it to a level that's "just right". The Drift feature sounds good, but in practice is very annoying. As you write, the page starts to scroll by, speeding up as you write. But try and dot an 'i' or cross a 't' and you'll find the page has Drifted by, making you try to sync the page speed, cross a 't' in mid air, or making your full stop a dash. On top of all that, you can't quickly tap Undo, Eraser or change the pen colour, because until the Drifting stops, those buttons are greyed out! Stop your input, then the Drift stops, then you can access the other buttons. Don't like that? Use the Anchor button to lock out the Drift feature, but now you have to two-finger scroll the page along after every couple of words. What was a nice simple app, with perfect Evernote syncing (for me) that just needed zoom, has now been "upgraded" into a scrolling nightmare. They broke it, when it only needed a tweak. So my choices are now to use other apps which don't sync with Evernote (they limit the API calling for other people) but write better with a better auto-scrolling feature and a variable zoom (Notes Plus, I'm talking about you), or, keep with Penultimate and it's, IMHO, great syncing, but coarse non zoom writing, or silly Drifting zoomed in writing. They broke it. Just got the app so close to a great product, and went backwards. Evernote - I love your product, but the Penultimate Team are obviously not 'your' people. Apple knew what to do with Maps when it broke - they sacked the guy responsible. That's what I think needs happening here, it's that bad an "upgrade".

  6. Love the sync, not quite hate the app. I have always wanted Evernote to buy, then integrate, Penultimate in to Evernote. Open Evernote, choose New Drawing (or similar) and write your thoughts down. I hate that the one company has two apps that then have people discussing pros and cons about their communication. I love that Penultimate syncs anything I do up to Evernote. I don't have to think of what to send, or, when inside of Evernote, if I search or look, if my Penultimate notes are there, or did I forget to sync that one? I enjoy hand writing a journal/diary, creating a new 'book' in Penultimate for each month. (can I put those 'books' into another folder, like Notes Plus does?) All of those books synced to Evernote is a comfort to me. The killer feature I think they have is that if I reopen and edit that note, it re-syncs that new version, so my Evernote record is always the latest. Other apps created new notes everytime you changed something. Yuk. Perhaps a happy medium would be to leave syncing on, one of Evernote's specialty features, but selectively turn syncing OFF for a specific Notebook. Call it Temp or Scribbles, etc. Then that notebook wont clutter up your Evernote account. Considering I have over 1300 notes, a few more in a Penultimate folder doesn't bother me. I agree with others though, where I would like to move some notes to other folders, matching a topic or project. Remember years ago when Evernote would let you make a New Note, and that could be text or pen. and you used the mouse to draw with? If they re-introduced that, and it was in the iPad app, and we used a stylus, and you could zoom in, then Penultimate would have no reason to exist. They bought the handwriting technology inside the app, now just do it!
