About Phil A

  1. I use Nitro Pro for PDF viewing and manipulation and after you mentioned the Google Chrome PDF Viewer I looked again and see it listed on the drop down. You are absolutely right it's identical. Not sure how copying Google improves our experience in Evernote when the new functionality is so diminished.
  2. Thanks for the additional info on navigation. I did try what you suggested. The navigation via the arrow keys requires that you highlight the last page number and then you can use the arrow keys and Home and End work, too! But it is oh so clunky compared to the former rollover menu where everything was right there. Why not put the icons and everything that was in the rollover menu in the header that drops down on the PDF. That way you have the best of both worlds, i.e the same functionality as before plus the scrollable PDF. Win Win!! And I'm not sure what the number is in the left of the header. I tried clicking and dragging on it and it does in fact transfer that number into an e-mail or document. Not sure why though. - Phil
  3. The PDFs are now scrollable which is fine if you have a short PDF but previously when you scrolled over the PDF a menu popped up that allowed you to go directly to the beginning or end or simply click through the pages. Also in that same scroll over menu there was an icon to open the PDF in your PDF program and to annotate, now that functionality is in the right click menu. But the thing that we used all the time in the scroll over menu and that worked great was the far right icon on the scroll over menu that allowed you to click and drag the entire PDF into say an e-mail for instance. It made attaching and handling PDFs a breeze. So basically I am extremely disappointed with the new functionality of the PDFs. The new version has lost functions that made it a breeze to use. To recap-- No way to get to the beginning or end of the PDF quickly. No way to click through the PDF pages (you now have to scroll) To annotate or open a PDF in a separate program you now have to right click and look for the option in the list of options where before you could just click the icon. No way to drag the PDF into another program. Where previously you just right clicked and dragged over the icon to for instance attached a PDF to an e-mail, now you have to save it to your hard drive and then go to you e-mail program, click attached and find the file. I would very much like the lost functionality back. Include it in the header. Include a scroll over menu similar to the previous one. Please, please, please re-instate the lost functionality. Thanks for listening. - Phil Also found out since I first wrote this that the new release also apparently does not allow you to type text in to the note that contains the PDF. I was always was able to hit ENTER after inputting the title which took you directly to the first line of the note pushing the PDF down one line and then you could type the text that you wanted. This was always a good way to for instance explain what the PDF contained or why you kept it, etc. Really upset not to have that function go away.
  4. Thanks for checking and getting back to me... I would point out though that to be consistent you should be able to press ESC to be done with the title just as you press ESC to be done with anything in the body of the note.
  5. Basically the way it worked previously when you hit the ESC key in the title it simply saved whatever had been changed and took the focus off the title. In other words edit the title, ESC, done. ESC should work from the note title the same way it works from the body of the note.Thanks for the shift-tab mention. I wasn't aware of that key combination to get to back to the note list.
  6. Up until several versions back in the Windows client the ESC key allowed you to exit editing the note title which was very handy since I routinely go through new notes to change or update the titles and nothing else. So you would go to the title edit or change what need edited or changed and ESC saved your changes and you were on to whatever you wanted to do next. In the latest version ESC does nothgin and in order to exit the title you either hit enter which takes you to the body of the note where you can then press ESC to exit the note. The only other option that I can find to exit a note title is to click the note in the preview pane with the mouse. Essentially I want the ability to exit the note title back. I can't think of any reason why it was removed to begin with. Please allow the ESC key to again work in the note title field. Thanks!! - Phil
  7. For the Windows Client. Sorry I forgot to mention that. I'll also put this in the Windows specific forum. Thanks!!

  9. Like most people I put just about everything in EN including all the information about trips that we take. My current strategy is to create a notebook for every trip and hotel reservation and all other information concerning the trip including receipts while we are on the trip are stored in that notebook specific trip notebook. I currently have two stacks one labeled Travel Future and one labled Travel Past. All notebooks for future travel are in the Travel Future stack and are moved to the Travel Past stack once the trip is over. I have probably around 100 total notebooks and tons of tags. But after reading about the 250 notebook limit I am thinking ahead and see that having a notebook for every trip is not going to be sustainable,The reason I initally created a notebook for each trip was two fold. First I can share the note book with my travel partner or anyone else for that matter and also save the notebook for off-line viewing on my portable devices so that I have access to everything should I not have a network connection. So I would like some detailed input from others who store travel information in EN. How do you set it up and why (with examples) would be great. Also any thoughts or input would be great. And thanks in advance.
