About Francois

  1. I created this thread and have been asking Evernote to develop a decent user-friendly text editor for I don't know how many months (years?). I have always received excuses answers that it is difficult to develop, it is not needed anyway, and if you are a smart Evernote user, you go without it. I am getting tired of this and therefore posted this alternative. As far as I know, it is not possible to build such a list in Evernote.
  2. This is a note taken in ONENOTE, Microsoft's competitor of Evernote. The interface may not be as fancy as Evernote's but it works very well and is compatible with the entire office suite. Onenote is free, works very well on Mac, iPhone, iPad. What else do you need?
  3. If someone tells me how to add an image to a post in this threat, I will show you something very interesting....
  4. Still, this is not understandable. When you work on a project (call it the way you want), you do different things: You gather information, save and organize it in folders etc., go to the internet and save pages / links, AND go to meetings, take notes, write text outlines etc. What is after "AND" should be Evernote 101, and it is actually a pain in the neck. Try to take some structured notes in a meeting with Evernote: You will get so focused on the trouble Evernote gives you, you will forget the purpose of the meeting. That is very strange. If that thing was solved, I would have taken a paid membership for long, and shared the application with my whole team. $ at stake for Evernote!
  5. Then you may well have the wrong software. Evernote has never really been a good option for that. You can do it but it's not really what Evernote appears to be trying to be. As Gazumped noted above, they focus has been primarily on collection, storage and retrieval. There are lots of apps that will sync notes to Evernote. Depending on what platforms you use, one of them may well be a better choice. I'm hooked on my LiveScribe pen right now. I take the notes on paper and they get synced to Evernote (as handwritten notes). I can convert them to text if I need to. Best of both worlds for me. Honestly, if I can do such sophisticated things as "collection, storage and retrieval", what's the point of preventing me from taking simple notes in the same folders? That's cruel, isn't it? Well, Evernote doesn't have folders. Not sure what your point is here. You can take "simple notes". And they can be in the same notebook. That is an incredibly semantic response. The notebooks are ostensibly folders. Folders are used to organize different kinds of information and so are the notebooks. Further, if we want to have wonderfully semantic arguments, if they call them notebooks, then the word processor should be able to take notes. Asking for a simple upgrade to the outlining capabilities of the editor is not remotely changing the functionality of the client, nor is it a slap in the face to the core credo of the application. It is merely improving very minimally one of the application's utilities. It isn't asking for a feature rich mindmapping processor. It is merely asking for the ability to properly outline text used in notes which is TOTALLY one of the expected utilities of a note taking application. Every single "power user" who has responded to this thread (I've been watching it for over a year) has responded with weird semantic, slippery slope arguments and a strange clinging to the traditional when the actual request is really simple and is not diametrically opposed to the goals of the application. Reading this thread is really friggen surreal, you guys. Matsie, you are brave to keep looking at all this non-sense and I fully agree with what you say. I absolutely do not care to know whether I'm writing in notebooks or folders. What I know, is that I still cannot take decent notes in Evernotes while even this forum where I'm writing now has better (and old / proven) text editing capabilities. Sigh...

  7. You know, I'm asking for simple things to enable taking notes in a meeting: Bulleted lists, numbered lists with more than one numbering levels, both mixed etc. So, to answer your question, no, I don't edit web content or, at least, this is absolutely not a priority. What I want, is Evernote to efficiently replace my notebook and pencil. Cheers
  8. if I was Evernote, I would add a paid plug-in for a small price that everybody would buy.
  9. Well it's good to know. When you take a paid subscription, and use the SW across devices, it's because you are going to use it a lot, therefore in a professional context. So, you don't want to spend time reformating etc. It needs to be simple and efficient. Again, don't think we are asking for rocket science, but everything is relative...
  10. Well, it's a little bit better but still very basic. Try and do a numbered list for instance: 1., 2. etc OK, then you indent to get what?... another 1.! What about 1 a)???
  11. I agree with everyone here: The text editor takes us back to the 80's. Even the editor of this forum is better!!! I would love to take a premium account and use Evernote intensively on all my devices. But this is really the point that refrains me from doing it. WHEN WILL IT BE FIXED?
  12. Hello, In the text editor, numbered lists work that way: Subject 1 Subject a Subject b Subject 2 Subject a Subject b etc. Is there a way to make them work that way: 1. Subject 1 a. Subject a b. Subject b 2. Subject 2 a. Subject a b. Subject b or anything similar? As I use Evernotes a lot for notes taking, this is slightly annoying... Thanks!
