  1. The above quote is an old comment so perhaps the person wouldn't make the same comment now. The comment certainly wouldn't make sense in light of how Evernote currently works. Evernote recognizes and allows many types of links -- e.g., if I drag an Omnifocus task into evernote, it will created a link back to the Omnifocus task. If I click on command-K to view that link, it shows that the link begins with omnifocus:///[etc.], and not with anything like http:///.... But if I try to manually create the very same link, Evernote won't allow it. Makes no sense to me. I seriously doubt that it
  2. FYI you encrypt entire Notes in the native Notes app on iPhones (iOS 9.3 and above including iOS 10). Same for the recent version of Mac's with OS X El Capitan (as well as macOS Sierra). Apple's natives Notes app isn't comparable to Evernote in many ways, but if you need to encrypt something but still want easy access across devices, you can use Apple Notes for this purpose if you use Apple's ecosystem of products. I now put my encrypted content there. If Apple continues to improve Notes, I may eventually dump Evernote or severely restrict Evernote use. Still, it's frustrating that Everno
  3. Thx for additional tips on alternatives! I do think Evernote has been dismissive, even if their reps have talked about it "a little bit" on forums. If the stated reason is really that they aren't "ready," then the reaction is actually worse than I thought, as it sounds a little like B.S. Why wouldn't they be "ready"? That makes it sound like they'd like to prioritize it but can't. The more likely scenario is that they've made a business decision not to prioritize it. Ie it's about choosing not to act, not about being unready to act To be clear I'm not criticizing you here, but I
  4. The encryption limitations in Evernote are frustrating, though there's now an alternative built into the Notes on app on iOS and Mac OS. If you have iOS 9.3 or later and/or OS X 10.11.4 or later, you can encrypt your notes in the Notes app. Here's a how-to: http://www.cultofmac.com/409077/secure-your-notes-with-password-protection-in-ios-9-3/ Evernote has long dismissed users' request for more encryption options (e.g. encryption within iOS, encryption of entire notes including attachments). Hopefully it will pay more attention to the issue now that competitors are expanding their encrypt
  5. In response to willysnax: I certainly support customization features and other features that would make Evernote's settings easier to use/navigate based on individual preferences. But note that you do have 2 good options already: (#1) While you are annotating (at least within the Mac desktop app), there's a checkbox at the bottom of screen where you can choose to turn annotation summaries off. Perhaps Evernote should make it bigger or more obvious, but it's there. It takes just one quick click. About 1 second of your time. Sorry you spent an afternoon on it, but you won't need
  6. +1 Passwords for links would be great. Encrypting entire notes (including attachments/images/text all at the same time) would also be great. +1 for the suggestions. (Encrypting text is helpful but extremely limited. If I want to encrypt a note with text and 2 attachments, I have to encrypt the attachments in a separate program and then bring the into Evernote, and then I have to encrypt the text. That's three encryptions, two of which take place outside of Evernote. Evernote could simplify this.)
  7. "You can open any PDF in a Note on your iPad, tap the Annotate icon, and draw on the PDF to your heart's content, as well as use the other annotation tools (Stickers, Shapes, Arrows, Text). Does that not provide the functionality you seek?" Definitely not! But thanks for raising the issue. The drawing functionality of the native Evernote annotation is primitive, clumsy, and inexact. With all due respect, anybody who has spent five minutes trying to handwrite anything using the Evernote native annotation functionality would not seriously suggest that it is comparable to Penulti
  8. "A small question: what if Saferoom would ask you to let it read only the notes that Saferoom has created? The permissions would be the same (read full notes), but only those created by Saferoom?" This would be a step in the right direction, I think, but it doesn't totally solve the issue. Even if Saferoom only had access to certain notes, the notes in question would be precisely those notes that I want to keep most secure. "Because to work with encrypted notes Saferoom needs to read them obviously." It depends what you mean by "Saferoom" in this sentence. If by "Saferoom" you
  9. Re this comment: "Evernote's API is set up in a way that requires third-party apps to have access to everything. This is a serious limitation in the Evernote service, [but] .... you'll have to trust Saferoom's developers. ... we are all working within this Evernote API limitation" This comment seems to suggest that we can or should trust Saferoom because the "serious limitation" in security (i.e. the fact that I have to agree to let Saferoom view all my Evernote notes as a condition of using the Saferoom app with Evernote) is not Saferoom's fault. But I don't care whose fault it is. I jus
  10. "I beleieve the history is deleted" I hope so, but until all these details we are discussing are made crystal clear by Evernote and Safe Room, I can't use Evernote / Safe Room for confidential files.
  11. Linking Saferoom to my Evernote accounts prompts Evernote to tell me that Saferoom wants access to be able to retrieve (any and all of) my notes. How is granting this full access compatible with the advertised "zero knowledge"? Thank you!
  12. Somebody wrote: "Preview maintains an excellent 'Highlights & Notes' list that can be shown in the Preview Sidebar." But this isn't true IMHO -- that is, it's not "excellent." The Preview "Highlights & Notes" only shows a limited excerpt of annotations, not the full annotations. If you highlight multiple lines of text, only a portion of it will appear in the summary. Plus, the annotation summary in Preview cannot be printed or exported, whereas the annotation summary in Evernote offers more flexibility. (But Evernote lacks the clean text-recognizing highlighting feature of Preview
  13. Right...but the highlighting function doesn't recognize the underlying text, which means I can draw with a highlighter on top of the text but it looks pretty messy, in part because my hands are a bit shaky sometimes, and in part because nobody can draw perfectly straight lines all of the time. It seems like Evernote should be able to implement text-recognition for its annotation feature, as this is standard in many other apps that annotate PDFs. Plus, Evernote already has text recognition; it just doesn't put that recognition to use with the highlighter tool. On my iPad, apps with this
  14. I love this feature. It's one of the best things about Evernote annotations in my opinion, though I can see why you and others might have a different preference. Fortunately it's optional to keep us all happy. When I open a pdf to annotate on my mac, there's a little checkbox that says "Include Annotation Summary." If you uncheck it, the summary goes away. P.S. One thing I strongly dislike about Evernote annotations is that the program does not recognize text in a PDF, so highlighting is not efficient like it is with other programs. But I've raised that in other threads with no solution p
  15. Yes yes yes. It's so strange that Evernote doesn't have an annotating option that recognizes text to ensure clean highlighting. Basically every other annotator for iPads has this. Major limitation in Evernote that makes me not use it.
