  1. Will Evernote ever note the fact that it cannot link to a Windows file or folder by simply dragging the file or folder into a note? This is a blaring shortcoming in an otherwise incredibly useful tool. I realize these links will not work if you open the note on a different platform. But if we're willing to accept that caveat then why not give us this very useful functionality. Here's how I would envision it working. Drag a file or folder into a note, upon dropping it we get a pop-up menu that says "Copy" or "Hyperlink". If we choose Copy then do the normal thing, if we choose Hyperlink then give us a hyperlink like C:\Myfolder\MyFile Please do not respond to this message unless you are an Evernote employee. No offense, but the well intended suggestions get off-topic very quickly.
  2. Are you looking for a link to a file not saved in the Evernote Database? I'm not sure why it would do that, since that would be outside its file structure. I'm able to drag various files into the EN window. Not sure if you can drag in a folder, but I don't think I've ever tried. I find that I save more files into EN and skip the usual folder structure of the computer itself. Windows search capability has been slower than molasses since Win7, at least in my networked environment. For many good reasons, we must maintain our Windows file/folder structure. Evernote should link to outside files and folders just like it can link to an URL. It is possible, but cumbersome - you create a shortcut to the folder or file in Windows, then drag the shortcut into Evernote. We should be able to drag a file or folder directly into Evernote and get the option to copy or link it upon dropping. If we link it, we should get a link in blue just like when we drag&drop an URL. As it is, we get a box with file name, date and time that takes up three times the room it needs to.

  4. This note refers to V5. Clicking in the Search bar (right or left click) does indeed bring up Saved Searches, and they can be dragged into Shortcuts in the left panel, but... This only works the first time you click the search bar. If it has some text already, or even just a flashing cursor, then clicking it does nothing. You have to clear the search, then re-click to see Saved Searches again. Furthermore, there is no Saved Searches at the bottom of the left panel anymore, and no way to add it there that I can find. Love Evernote but experiencing a little grrr here. Please, we just need to be able to have Saved Searches accesible on the Toolbar (left panel not a good place, things scroll away too easily and many users keep it closed).
  5. Please return the ability to put Tags and Notebooks in the Toolbar (used to be called Faborites bar). Even if we keep our left panel open, if we have a long list of tags and we're somewhere down in it, we can't see the Shortcuts at the top. The idea of a shortcut is you can get to it easily at any time. Those who keep left panel closed and those with long tag lists have crippled shortcuts.
  6. I'm having this same issue with Reminders not clearing out of the Reminder List on Windows 5.0.1.1174 Release. I'd also like a shortcut or something so that I can see the Reminders list at will, and not just when Reminder notes are showing in the Note List. Just a couple startup wrinkels, but overall it looks very clean.
