  1. Not only do we need the top list view back, maybe they could finally incorporate reminders into that view, so we wouldn't have to constantly toggle the view to see the reminders list...
  2. Thanks, and sorry for the duplicate. My preferred view is actually the Top List view actually—I always have to toggle to the Snippet view just to see reminders. So since it only happens in snippet view, I guess I'll just toggle to card view for that purpose instead! Thanks again.
  3. It appears this may be intentional, but it's a real drag on my workflow so hoping it's an oversight, or could be re-thought. As of the latest update, when clicking a reminder in the windows desktop client, the list automatically scrolls to that note. (Whereas before it would open the note in the note view pane, but would leave the list scroll alone, at the reminders.) Since I'm normally trying to go through several reminders at once, it's super annoying having the list jump down to some random location (based on when the note with the reminder I've clicked happened to be updated) rather tha
  4. Disabling CFG appears to have dramatically sped up my Evernote as well. Unfortunately, it appears it's all or nothing—you can only disable it for the whole system. Evernote: can you fix the interaction with CFG so it doesn't dramatically slow down things like copying notes between notebooks?
  5. Yep, which is what I've been doing; the only problem with that is that you don't get a link back to the email, so you need to search for it back in gmail. Not the end of the world, but I save a lot of emails as part of my workflow, so I'd love to avoid it.
  6. Title says it all. I was excited to see that the web clipper now supports gmail, but unfortunately it appears that it doesn't work with gmail's preview pane feature enabled, which I can't live without. Any chance you could fix that?
  7. My web clipper recently updated to version 6, and I can't seem to figure out how to choose the notebook and tags for a clip. It used to be that the dialog would allow you to select both, but now the only options relate to the format of the clip, not where to put it. If I click on the Options button at the bottom of the dialog, I can set the default notebook and tags for all clips, but I don't see anywhere to set them for the particular clip being taken. Was this ability removed? If so, why? If not, could you help me find it? Thanks. Edit: additional info. I tried turning off 'smart fi
  8. From my point of view, this comment is the key to the whole issue. If tags for shared notebooks were automatically placed in their own distinct namespace by default it would solve the problem of tag pollution, removing the motivation behind the current limitation. Plus, it would really improve the tag auto-complete experience (both in the main programs and in things like the clipper), since if this option were chosen, those shared notebook tags could be suggested for autocomplete only if that notebook was selected. (And so you could feel free to create a large number of tags, which is often
  9. "...this is a 'nice to have' but there are many other things more pressing!" I don't disagree with you there, especially if all it does is warn you when you try to clip a duplicate url. However, I think knowing immediately when you land on a page whether you've clipped it before (with the clipper icon lighting up or changing color or something) would be considerably more valuable and even more in line with the Evernote philosoply you mentioned. Plus, it would be far less obtrusive, avoiding the 'thick and fast' warnings problem. The only downside is the technical issue jbignert mentioned
  10. BTW: You could use something like X-Marks to sync your bookmarks between browsers and devices, which would solve that part of the problem. I'm a little bit tempted to just make a habit of hitting the firefox bookmark star (which just dumps things in 'unsorted bookmarks', which I don't use anyway, every time I clip something actually. It won't be perfect, but I'll avoid a lot of those accidental re-clippings, and it'll be nice to see at a glance that I clipped a page before. It won't catch everything (probably won't do it on other devices since it's more of a pain to bookmark), but won't hur
  11. For sure, I agree that part alone wouldn't be useful for everyone, but it'd be a start for some of us. On second thought though, it wouldn't seem to be too resource intensive to just keep the bookmarks folder in sync with EN. The web clipper would need to send a request at login and periodically afterward to check whether there were any web clippings added to or deleted from the EN library since the last check. Since the polling wouldn't have to be too frequent, and the queries would be limited to a short time index, I would expect it to work pretty well. Bookmarks in that folder could the
  12. Thanks for the reply! I was actually thinking a bit more last night about how this might be implemented without that overhead. What about an option in the web clipper to automatically add any page you clip to a folder in your browser's bookmarks? You could then use bookmarks instead of history in the way you describe, which would be much more reliable. And in fact, you wouldn't necessarily even need to do anything else, since the built in browser interface would then show that the page had been clipped (or bookmarked). A bit trickier would be keeping that bookmarks folder entirely in sync wit
  13. You know what would be ideal? If for every page you visited, the evernote browser plugin sent a request to your library to check whether you've clipped that exact url. If so, the web clipper icon would change color. (Just like the bookmark star in the browser.) That way there'd be no back and forth "oops, I already clipped that!" or whatever. It'd just be immediately obvious. If you haven't been to the page in a long time, you'd have a reminder that it was clipped at some point in the past, which might even prompt you to search for related stuff you clipped the first time around. Or to
  14. I don't know, it seems pretty straightforward to implement a basic version of this. You wouldn't have to catch every duplicate; if you miss some, it's no worse than now. So you could focus on eliminating the false positives you describe. For example, the warning could appear only if you're clipping an identical url to the same notebook where you have the same url clipped already. (As opposed to simply the same site or a similar url.) I can see how trying to match the contents of a full article clip might be too resource-intensive to give this immediate feedback, but it could at least chec
