About Ruobin

  1. hi, hope this doesn't  bother you too much.....

    I saw that you are on an IPAD Pro. As i am about to migrate from Windows/Android to Apple,  I do need some support.

    However, I think,  it might be better to communicate via chat or email.

    the questions i have are evernote related (not so much on how to migrate but more about the features of evernote ). i am very much disappointed about the lag of features of the Android vs. Windows  version. As I am a very intense tablet  user, I need to know how far the evernote version for IPPro is away from the actual full "computer" version.

    As I am working in China at the moment I tried  to get some answers  from the local Apple store, however,  they actually have zero knowledge. .......

    my email: ReichertRo@gmail.com 

    thanks in advance for your efforts

      Sorry to give you bad news, but the IOS (iPad) version also lacks many of the desktop platform features

      I'm not familiar with Android but I suspect the experience is the same.

      I use my iPad for reviewing notes, but mostly my creation is done on my Mac

      thx, that helped. Finally  it confirms that Tablets /Pads can't  replace PC/Notebooks (which is  IMHO a shame for the industry, as they want to hold on to old concepts on the shoulder of the consumers ).

      Microsoft is trying to bring windows 10 and followers to the tablet platforms. however, they are not brave enough to give their operating system the necessary kick and polish to the GUI. And Apple didn't  give the PadPro line the full Apple experience by installing  the castrated OS of Pads instead of the full version of the notebook series. So, the name "Pro" is a kind of overstatement.  

      Thx again for your quick response, it probably safes me a thousand bugs.




  2. I use another way around: in MSEdge click open in Explorer.......then use "evernote clipper" to get the page. This seems only to be possible if you have "evernote clipper" installed in MS Explorer
  3. I did a research on the forums here: Most of my items from above list are discussed many times .....since years..... My conclusion : Evernote does not have the intention to implement those features.....for whatever reason........... So, I am not longer interested in discussing it here. + GURU: Thank you for your input, I appreciate it very much. Only one example: yes, all features must be available in ALL OSs. If, for example I tell my staff to copy the notes and data (which they need for a meeting or for a customer) to a temp notebook, then they will tell me: I can do this on a Mac , on my windows PC but not on my Tablet. As I don't want to buy for ALL people desktops AND Tablets ( some really don't need a desktop but Tablets) this feature is useless and I have to change my whole organization according to evernote's capabilities. That's not gonna happen............. However, I learnt that evernote is on a good way, but not yet ready to replace other business/documents management tools. (Attachment management, Tag management, data security). Thx again. Discussion closed RR
  4. I'd like to share my "missing feature list" with the community. This list is only the "most wanted" from my side. Please feel free to add your ideas or to give me comments on my list. TIA RR 1) Management system for attachments (a)view ...inside the note or as attachment (b) sort by drag and drop 2) option to encrypt attachments (similar to the text encryption) 3) ALL options should be available via the desktop version as well as the tablet (android/ios) versions (in modern times the tablet/pads are more and more replacing the desktops, at least, if people are working from remote places. Then it's really a pain in the neck, if the tablet/pads are "handicapped" tools. this means, I have to touch my work twice (after returning to the office). 4) better usability of tags (tag management). I understood, evernote is made to be organized by tags (notebooks are restricted to 250 afaik). However, I have serious problems to use my tag structure. I mean, when applying a tag, it only shows an example, if you already put in the starting letters. Nice, however, sometimes I cannot remember what name I gave to this particular tag, which I want to use. So, I suggest that there should be a pop-up of the tag structure during the input-process of tags. It would also help, if there was a permanent window or sidebar (horizontally because of the deeper structure) either as pop up or to call via short-key.....). 5)I was quite happy about the new colour feature for the tags until I opened my tablet and saw that this feature is not reflected there. So I spent almost 2 hours to colour my tags only to find out that evernote has wasted my time one more time. So, I want to emphasize again that ALL features should be available across ALL platforms. Honestly I don't understand whys this is such a problem. So, please, don't announce with big noise new features, which are only on one platform available. Please be aware that more and more the users are NOT "single platform users". Almost all of my friends are at least on two platforms simultaneously (windows + android, or windows + IOS/OSX). Everybody tells me it's very annoying to deal with missing features or too different user-interfaces/options. Yes, we are aware that there are differences between the operating systems, but it is your task to minimize those for the easy life of your users. 6) Export options. To say it with one sentence. It is a must for me have an export option to PDF. The html/xml options are really driving me crazy. If I want to send documents to a a friend/partner, I don't want to force those people to join evernote or even let them know that I use evernote. A neutral but common format like PDF is a MUST. That's my hot-list. there are plenty of ideas left out, however these are most wanted from my point of view. Hope to receive some feedback RR Edit: Got aware that my point 2)encryption ....is deeply discussed in many older topics. so, forget it. However, I'd like to make clear that I meant only the option to encrypt a single attachment exactly for the reason to hide it and secure it from the INDEX process. I am back to use my "own system" which works on all my hardware (windows, android, ios) namely: install open pgp and simply encrypt the file in question. If you want to open it, simply double click and load it in evernote, it will automatically decrypt via open (gnu) pgp.
  5. hi, I can see your idea, however, that's not the way your notes are supposed to be organized IMHO. Evernote is restricted to 250 notebooks afaik. It makes more sense to build a tree or a catalog of tags (which allows you to put even multiple tags on your notes). I actually use only two "main" notebooks ..."inbox" and ...."archive"...All other notebooks are only for: local notebooks, shared notebooks or "special item" notebooks. This means I only have a handful of notebooks and all my notes are organized by a "tag-structure". Hope this helps you to get rid of your "create new notebook- problem". RR
  6. it seems to me that "evernote" simply doesn't want to implement a strong encryption. the argument for export restrictions is not acceptable. First: they store all data inside USA. So nothing gets exported. Second, if they use servers outside US then there is no export, as it is no transfer from US to another country. Third: they could get a licence. Fourth: They probably will get forced by NSA to implement a backdoor. I actually discuss with a lot of friends in Europe to leave/cancel all American services/cloud services as we have lost all trust in America to respect the rules keeping our privacy. The problem is that European IT companies are too stupid to pick up the momentum and penetrate NOW into the market with good and secure services; or they got stopped by their American mother companies. It becomes more and more obvious that we have been very very naive to trust in the "Land of freedom". However, I recommend to the useres here to use Open PGP to cut and paste the text is not so much more complicated than a direct encryption. There are also well working plug ins for IOS, Android and Windows-phones and PC available. The advantage is you can even encrypt your attachments, while evernote encryption is only for plain text.
