  1. Thanks Phil Wright for your suggestion. I'm also getting delivery errors when I've tried to Email a Copy of my Evernote from my Mac. I tried sending to several accounts, including Gmail. I'll contact tech support as well.
  2. After several years, is nobody from Evernote going to address this, at least in this forum? That is a good workaround, @EverTed. It's a shame that we have to do this tough. I looked up this forum topic because I'm listening to a podcast for work, and taking important notes in Evernote on my iphone. Having to look up this feature, then to find that it doesn't exist, is a waste of all of our time. And as many other users have suggested, this seems like a basic feature that has been requested for YEARS. So instead, my note now has a bullet item that is 4 or 5 times the size of every other one, just because I copied and pasted a long line of text from a website. Now I have to remember, when I'm back at my office, to open up Evernote, remember to find this note that needs fixing, and scroll down 20 or 30 lines to find what needs fixing. In an otherwise busy work day, I dont always remember to fix such things I suppose another workaround would be to open my iPhone's Mail app, paste the offending text into it, do the formatting there, then copy and paste it back into Evernote. So problem "solved"! Just need an Apple product to fix an Evernote product. [Don't worry, I'm not an Apple apologist] I've used Evernote Premium for several years now, and have generally been happy with things, FYI. My only other gripe is how poorly the shared notes have synced - in the few instances that I tried to collaborate with a colleague on the same note.
  3. Thanks for leaving this up. HOWEVER, I think it's worth all of us asking Evernote to add an option (in Preferences, on a Mac, for example) to create an "Are you sure you want to delete this Note?" warning before we delete any Note or Notebook. Once or twice, I deleted a note accidentally, and it took me a few weeks to notice the error. This is a common courtesy within most software, and partially because you could lose data.
  4. I've started using 1password as well (which I like), and they offer encrypted software called Knox. I'm considering the latter in order to password protect Evernote, my contacts, and other software that doesn't normally require a login on your Mac.
  5. Same thing happened to me, with the same Mac OS. Trashing and redownloading worked, thanks! On a side note, I've had a lot of problems with the last three updates or so, with Evernote freezing up when I tried to change a note's Notebook designation. Evernote has otherwise been pretty great.

  8. vbehr: your trick worked, thank you so much! I'm guessing this same problem began for me when I upgraded to 5.5.2. Actually, I only had to select some text, and then the toolbar showed up. The toolbar seems to disappear when you're not using it, and I wonder if that's some confusing new "feature". I attached two screen grabs: 1) shows that no toolbar is showing. That's when I've selected the note, but haven't yet put my cursor in the text. 2) shows the toolbar after I've highlighted the text, or otherwise put my cursor within the note's text. On a side note: anyone have Evernote's blue syncing "circle of arrows" get stuck, to the point that you had to force quit Evernote after the syncing prevented you from being able to normally quit the application? Sorry if this is bringing up a separate topic. My system details: Mac 10.7.5 Evernote 5.5.2
  9. While that will work, it's a bit laborious. For those that need to do this often or want a simpler method, see: Copy file or folder path to the clipboard in Mac OS X Lion I use this and it works well. Thanks, JMichael. I'll try it out!
  10. You need to hit "Cmd. + K" to create the link, NOT just paste the link. FYI: I'm on a Mac, and the shortcut ("alias") did not work for me, either. I also found another way to find the file location (on a Mac): 1) Type Cmd. + i (i as in "iceberg"), to reach the "Get Info" window. 2) About 4 lines down in the window, copy the file location from the "Where" row. A sample file location looks like: "/Users/sampleusername/Documents/2014/work_mileage_2014" 3)Paste that file location after "file://" to create something that looks like "file:///Users/sampleusername/Documents/2014/work_mileage_2014". It doesn't appear to need the file type (in my case, an Excel file). FYI: you end up with three forward-slashes after "file:". 4) Open Evernote and click "Cmd. + K" to create a link. Pasting the link (Cmd. + V) will not work. 5) FYI #2: this method doesn't show the full location if your file is on your desktop. In that case, enter the file name after "/Users/sampleusername/Desktop". Though I don't recommend having files permanently live on your desktop (they clutter your desktop and use up processing power), so I'd put them in a folder first, for better file management. -end
  11. @ EverKel: Update: note sure if this was available when you originally asked the question back in January. But Evernote Web now offers a "Slideshow" feature: http://blog.evernote.com/blog/2012/08/02/evernote-web-gets-image-slideshows-and-linkedin-sharing/ Additionally, I agree that it would be incredibly useful to: -have the Slideshow feature available on iOs and Mac versions. -be able to view a Slideshow of Images/Notes wiith the same Tags. -Alternatively: Evernote could offer a way to view a "Media Library" of all imported images and movie files.
  12. Hi ab1kenobee, I'm not sure if this suffices for you, but I too have been wanting an easier way to view multiple and/or large images more easily in Evernote. A partial solution for me was the discovery of the "Slideshow" feature on Evernote's mobile site. It allows you to view a single Note's images in a slideshow. More info here: http://blog.evernote.com/blog/2012/08/02/evernote-web-gets-image-slideshows-and-linkedin-sharing/ I wish this Slideshow would be available on the Mac version (and Windows, for your benefit) and iPhone! I'm trying to use Evernote INSTEAD of multiple applications. The idea of viewing my Evernote images outside of Evernote seems like a step backwards. My additional suggestion to Evernote would be the ability to see ALL image attachments within multiple, selected Notes or Notebook Stacks. Or "just" offer an image library that allowed you to view all images that exist in Evernote in a browser, without all of the text from the Notes. Any software developers out there? This seems like a good add-on that you could find in The Trunk. Call it "Evernote Photo Viewer", and make it work on the Mac, for iOs, and the website. Hope the Slideshow view at least gives you a little more flexibility! I'm starting to rely heavily on Evernote, and I think it's important to encourage them to advance useful features like this! My concern is borne out of affection for an otherwise dynamic and useful piece of software.
