  1. Mark, It seems like most of your frustration with the new web client are the missing features, correct? I agree that the missing features are quite annoying, but you can always use the old web client until the new web client is out of beta. My main issue with the new web client is that Evernote has been very slow to release updates that I depend on, such as tag hierarchies, copying note links to create a table of contents, merging notes, etc. A simple solution would be for me to use the old client, but then I cannot use some of the new features that I use quite a bit such as workchat and context. I would love it if Evernote could temporarily add a solution to make workchat (I could live without context for now) available for the old web client so that I can stick with that so that I am not missing so many features. If I were you, I would list specific things you do not like about how they have gone about the release of the beta client so that a useful discussion could be had and problems would be addresses. Just keep in mind that the product is still in beta meaning it is not fully released yet, so don't lose hope - it should be more functional then the old client ever was once it is ready. I would like it if the progress of adding new features to the web client could be sped up a little bit, but obviously developing things like this take time. Thank you for your insight. Robert
  2. Thank you gazumped. I probably should have specified that doing the following things I listed above can allow you to annotate it in different ways. Some people would rather import powerpoint into word and annotate them there, or export them as images and annotate the images. One of the more popular ways of annotating would probably be .pdf if you have a pdf editor. I like to paste them into word because I can annotate them easier by drawing on them / highlighting under the slides, etc. Evernote does in fact index powerpoint, word, and excel files. Or at least they do on my windows PC. Whatever way you decide to annotate, they will be indexed (Unless you wish to use handwriting...in which case only images will be indexed for handwriting).
  3. I use Microsoft Office 2013 on a machine running Windows 8.1 - I know that you said you have keynote so you are using a Mac, but I would be suprised if you could not do this on a Mac...the instructions just might be a little different. in powerpoint, I always go to File --> Export --> Create Handouts --> and then I select however I want my handouts to look, and click okay powerpoint then conerts your slides (and notes if you choose) into a word document. I go into the word document, click Ctrl + A (select all) and then I click Ctrl + C (copy) and then I go into an evernote note (I use evernote for windows - the newest version) and I click Ctrl + V (paste). If you already know the keyboard shortcuts, I appologize because I was not trying to assume that you did not know what they were, but not everyone does. **You can also (in Powerpoint) go to file --> save as --> and select as images (jpeg OR png) and powerpoint will export each slide as an image which you can then import into evernote. You can also open up a powerpoint files, go to the "notes" view and just take notes from within the powerpoint file and have the file in a note in evernote and just keep it saved there. Or you can export the powerpoint as a PDF and edit the PDF. The options are endless, but I tend to do what I explained first in this post. Hope this helps! Also - sorry if any of this has already been answered - I only read the original post!
  4. I recently began using Evernote for windows since I purchased a new laptop. I quickly noticed that you cannot format the text by inserting a superscript or a subscript. Although I know you can paste it in from a program like Microsoft word, it is a hassle while I am in the middle of taking notes and it drastically slows me down. I understand that Evernote cannot simply worry about implementing things that only a few users complain about, but I think that it is a little crazy that Evernote web has this ability to insert superscripts and subscripts but the windows client doesn't. Desktop programs should have all of the features of a thin client plus many more. If Evernote could make this addition in the next update it would be much appreciated. I couldn't imagine it would take any serious coding to give us this ability. Thank you.
  5. I am having the exact same issue. Ink Notes are not indexed so I cannot search for them. I am using a Microsoft Surface Pro 2. The only work around is to copy the ink notes by using "select all" and pasting them into new note so they are an image file that can be recognized and indexed. This is not ideal because once you copy and past them into a new note, you can no longer go back and edit them. Also - when I use Ink Notes and I view them on my android phone or on the web, they do not look good at all (the actual thickness of the lines appears to be much thicker to the point where it is unreadable) and there are also very strange page breaks that distort some of the ink notes. That is not nearly as big of an issue to me as not having the ability to search my handwritten notes. Please fix this Evernote! I have always liked Evernote over Microsoft Onenote but if features like this do not work it seems like I might not have a choice if this is not fixed. Also - I had a ticket opened up, but I have heard nothing from support in a while and I feel like they forgot about my ticket. My ticket number is #339268. Please fix this!
  6. I am having the same issue. Ink Notes are not searchable at all. OS: Windows 8.1 Device; Microsoft Surface Pro 2 EV Version:
  7. It most definitely used to be a feature. I don't know what else to say besides I know you could do it because I used to use it. Maybe you just never noticed, because it was there and many other users will back me up on that.
  8. After recently updating to the newest version of Evernote for windows, I have lost the ability to right click on an image and click "markup with skitch." Now, I have to right click --> open with --> skitch. Once I do this, I edit my image, and click save. It saves it back to evernote as a new note...not the note I opened it from. This is very frustrating. I use skitch all the time and this makes it very painful to use. Now, I have to save an image to my desktop, open it in skitch, edit it, save it back to the desktop, and then drag it back to evernote. This is a very annoying process. Every time I download an Evernote update I just wait to discover all of the new bugs. It is very irritating and it needs to be fixed.
  9. couldn't have said it better myself. When a company releases a new program, app, or whatever I get that their is going to be a few bugs. That is the nature of it. BUT...the company needs to be prepared to fix these bugs ASAP. Usually it's one or two major bugs that can be fixed quick. The new windows client along with the clipper have so many bugs and they aren't showing that they are making any progress fixing them. It amazes me how they are releasing products that seem like they aren't even at the beta stage. It just amazes me that they seem like they don't even test these products before they are released. Evernote should have the money to fix this. Even if they didn't...I would gladly pay $7 or $8 a month instead of $5 if it would mean that their products would actually work. They need to get on top of their game soon or they are going to start losing a lot of customers.
  10. For the time being, I suppose we could just add our evernote email addresses to our contacts and forward the emails to our evernote account and organize it once it is in there. It is not as ideal as the clipper, but it gets the job done without having to copy and paste the email and then download and upload the file.
  11. PowerBot looks promising...but I agree with you that the price is very steep for something that we used to be able to do for free. Maybe Evernote will actually do their job and fix it soon...but we can only hope.
  12. I would love a solution from Google so I can drop Evernote. My only issue is that it looks like this new feature only imports attachments from emails instead of the entire email. Is this the case? Also, it is ridiculous how long this feature has been down. When Evernote implements a feature, you think they would be pretty sure they could keep the feature working. Why even offer us something new and exciting just to say its no longer working. Evernote support literally told me it would be "quite some time" before this as fixed. What is that supposed to mean? That they aren't even trying to fix it? You can't tell me it is this complicated. They just don't care. Evernote always talks about integration, yet all of their products seem to malfunction when used with some other sort of service. This is unacceptable. Evernote needs new management, especially in the customer service department. If not, they are going to start losing even the most loyal customers. It is such a shame because evernote is such a great idea. Sadly, they can't implement it properly.
  13. Steps to exporting to google docs http://smallbusiness.chron.com/move-evernote-files-google-docs-46746.html thank you very much!
  14. I agree that the issues are ridiculous. Google products never have as many bugs for this long. I loved Evernote and I mistakenly invested so much into it. Does anyone know of the least painful way to import all Evernote info back to Google Drive? I'm just gonna stick with that for documents and keep for reminders. Google search is more powerful anyway and I am so tired of waiting for Evernote to constantly "fix" everything.
  15. well damn...never mind then. Hopefully it is fixed soon. I clip more emails than I clip anything else.
