  1. I did (close & restart EN). And it is an OTF. And while I would still like to know what font set EN uses, in the mean time I've decided there's just not THAT much difference between the Helvetica (that I just installed) and Verdana which is already in the EN font set. So, I'll just use Verdana. Thanks anyway.
  2. I just loaded Helvetica Neue font to my font set in Windows 7 (desktop pc), but it doesn't show up in the drop-down of available fonts in Evernote. What font set does the Evernote Windows Desktop client use and is there a way to add new fonts to it?
  3. Yes, that's what I was doing. My search was bringing up 14 notes from my Archives notebook and I could easily scroll down and find the two starting with "David:" somewhere in the middle. No big deal for no more notes than that. However, I'm in the process of migrating old emails, documents, and LOTS of things into Evernote. I expect to have thousands of notes in EN before I'm done! And now that I've learned that I can't simply search for what I call the label (the first word or phrase in the title that ends with a colon)...it's forcing me to rethink how I want to organize and code my notes. I mean...what's the point in putting everything into Evernote if I can't easily extract what I want? And for me, that also includes making sure I don't have tons of notes to wade through on a given search because I didn't get specific enough with either my tags or how I coded the title. I have a system that works without notebooks or tags. http://www.christopher-mayo.com/?p=367 If I want to be precise with my system, I can do combinations of searches. For example, if you and David went to New York in September last year and you are looking for notes related to that, you could type in the following parameters and probably arrive at a very small number of notes. intitle:david intitle:1309* "new york" I prefer to put as little time as possible into organizing on the front end. I just want everything in there, and I trust that I can find it with the advanced searches. It has worked pretty well for a few years now. Some people prefer to have a detailed organizational system on the front end that filters everything as it comes into their accounts. That's fine, of course, but I have gradually dropped notebooks and tags because I've found I just don't need them. I'd recommend that if you do use them, you read some of the advice on the forums and limit the amount you use in the beginning. Thanks, Christopher. I've been somewhat following your philosophy already in that I have very few notebooks or tags and was structuring my EN database in such a way as to rely heavily on using searches. But until this morning, I didn't realize how much of a novice I am when it comes to advanced searches...and it threw me! Guess I better spend a bit more time extracting stuff out of EN rather than spending all my time dumping stuff in it! And, too, some of what I hit this morning has more to do with my personal preferences rather than a major flaw with Evernote. I was just surprised that I couldn't simply search for "David:" in the title (once you guys told me about the intitle parameter) and get ONLY those notes. Oh well...guess that just means EN isn't perfect...yet!
  4. Yes, that's what I was doing. My search was bringing up 14 notes from my Archives notebook and I could easily scroll down and find the two starting with "David:" somewhere in the middle.

  5. I don't understand why this isn't working. If you type this (no quotation marks), what happens? intitle:David What happens if you use quotation marks? intitle:"David" Both of these should work fine if the name is at the beginning of a phrase in the title. She's trying to include the colon in order to refine the search results to exclude notes that have David elsewhere in the title. (I think.) That is correct. And you are also correct in that it makes no difference whether I type intitle:David or intitle:"David:"...the search finds 14 notes, all with David in the title, but not ONLY the two I actually want. So...in my particular situation, I'm just going to create a new Notebook and move the two notes I want from a general "catch-all" notebook to the new notebook. I will be adding lots more notes, in time. And will keep this in mind...that I can't extract (search for) notes simply by using the beginning "label." I appreciate all the input here. Thanks again, everyone!
  6. Okay...not happy to hear this, but yes, looks like I'm going to have to do more with Notebooks and Tags. The only problem with finding this out (that I can't do an intitle search for only the beginning of the title) is that I've coded almost every single note I have in EN using this scheme...and it goes WAY beyond just notes for my husband. As powerful as Evernote is—and I think it's amazing!—this is a HUGE disappointment for me! Glad I only have 662 notes so far rather than thousands to "rethink". :-(
  7. Okay...that helped. But can I narrow it down a bit? I want to be able to search for "David:" at the beginning of the note ONLY. I tried typing: intitle:"David:" and that didn't work. Any suggestions?
  8. I am using Evernote 5 on a Windows PC and can't seem to figure out how to search for text in the title only. Example: I have a number of notes with titles that start with my husband's name...and his name is David. So the title might be something like "David: Strengths Finder Results" or "David: email thread with Sandy on 4/13/13" I do NOT want to run a search for all my notes containing his name (I have TONS!); only the title. So I want to search for "David:" in the title only. Can I do that? If so, please tell me how! Thanks! Sharon Hillam
  9. Jefito: That's great news...but you failed to tell me HOW! I am using Evernote on my Windows 7 desktop pc running IE9 as well as my iPad mini...and so far, I've not figured out a way to do anything but add new tags and check and uncheck them within my notes. I am using the free version. Does it require an upgrade to Premium to do this perhaps?
  10. I started out using a tag "Prof dev" for one of my notes. Then, decided to use something different. (It was the only note where I had used that tag.) Now, "Prof dev" continues to show up when I select tags...and I can't find any way to remove it from the internal master list of tag names. Is there a way to purge/delete it or am I stuck with it forever?
