About Gregory Smith

  1. You might want to look at David Allan's book "Getting Things Done" for organizing ideas. One way to do this using EverNote Tags is given at the http://www.thesecretweapon.org web site. Merlin Mann also has a web site http://www.43folders.com that has additional information on ways to organize information. Julie Morgenstern also has a number or personal productivity books about organization and time management. Her web site is http://www.juliemorgenstern.com/. You can also search the forums for terms such as GTD and 43 folders for what has been posted here. Remember, these are *suggestions* for how you might want to work. It will have to fit to how YOU want to work. Just don't go overboard on productivity http://vooza.com/videos/productivity-porn-test/
  2. Hi. Welcome to the forums, and thanks for posting the helpful links for everyone! As always, you take a risk downloading from an unauthorized third-party, and I recommend everyone use their own Time Machine backups of the app if possible. I keep backups of all my apps, just in case.As for the evangelists, we are just users like yourself. Fortunately, the developers read the user forum (you'll see them here and there responding), so you can rest assured that they will see your post, and you don't need us to do anything. Fortunately, I was able to re-install from an "official" install on my other Mac. My gripe there is that with the App Store, you don't have a chance to downgrade once you have chosen to upgrade. So if you don't have Time Machine setup or another Mac, then your choice is to "take a risk downloading from an unauthorized third-party" . By the way, that "unauthorized third party" link was from one of these forums. Don't ask me which one ... I wasted too much time looking for it the first time (after I did the downgrade install from my other Mac). The best advice I have is to use the direct download version instead of the appstore one, and keep the .dmg file somewhere (or, just use Time Machine). http://www.christopher-mayo.com/?p=135 I figured the link came from the forums, and that is why I gave my disclaimer. Just because a link appears here doesn't mean it is OK, and some users don't know the dangers. It may well be fine, but I don't know, so I like to give a heads-up when I am unsure. I checked out the link... And I can get the CURRENT version of the direct download version instead of the App Store version. How about EverNote having an "OFFICIAL" archive of old versions. That way we won't have to go take a chance with that "unauthorized third party" link. Besides, I started with the direct download version. And when I changed to the App Store version..... What a mess. Another big waste of time trolling through the forums to find and fix a corrupt database. Yes, I did have a backup. But the upgrade left a corrupt version in place on my laptop. So, just delete the corrupt version in place and re-import. But, just try to find it with the out of date documentation and inconsistent information on the forum.

  4. (Premium member here.) Fortunately, I did not upgrade on my Mac Mini. I managed to downgrade by copying the App from the Mac Mini to my MacBook. On another thread (http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/38283-view-missing-in-511/), a few people mentioned that restoring from a Time Machine backup got back the horizontal list view. Finally, you could waste a several hours looking through these forums looking for instructions on how to downgrade. Since I have already wasted the time, I will save you the time by reposting the following link: http://mac.filehorse.com/download-evernote/3330/old-versions/ Oh, for the evangelists, on the other thread I saw repeated several times that over 150 requests were made in the past for Reminders. I hope that the evangelists are keeping count on the other thread asking to bring back the horizontal view that there are over 150 posts. I hope that the evangelists will get this information to the EverNote developers.
  5. Before the last update to 5.1.0, the display pane for the list view was on the bottom. After the upgrade, the display pane has moved over to the right hand side. I don't mind the new list view with the display pane on the right on my desktop since I have a wide screen monitor. HOWEVER, the new arrangement is a pain on my laptop. I used to have ten inches to display the create date, a fairly complete title, the last update date, the note size, and a few tags. Now, I have less than six inches which means that displaying the created and updated dates leaves me with some titles that are so abbreviated as to be nearly meaningless. Is there some magical menu entry or keystroke that will: 1) Move the display pane underneath the list pane so I have the full ten inches for the list? 2) Get rid of the display pane entirely? or 3) Get a horizontal scroll bar on the bottom of the list so I can scroll to see a complete title on my note?
