  1. Yes, I'm having the same issues, but it's with the web client on Chrome. But all of the sudden I can't use it on Chrome. I'm assuming that Chrome had an update and that's what broke it.
  2. Nope, if I turn off my VPN and use my home network, I get the same symptoms.
  3. Work machine - see "Lack of selective synch" as to why I don't have the app installed.
  4. 99% of the requests are applicable to both Windows and Mac - I want the same selective synch feature on Windows. Right now I have to use the web-app (which is better than one-note, but still sucks). Why does evernote seem to treat it's windows client and it's mac client as 2 COMPLETELY different products, with completely different user bases? If I have an issue I seem to have to make a comment and vote on the Mac side, and then search for the same issue on the Windows side, and then make another comment there.
  5. I am having the exact same desire (other than the fact that I'm on Windows). I'd like evernote to be like dropbox where I can say, "Hey on this computer, only work with and see this one notebook, do NOT under ANY conditions synch or show me documents in any other notebook when I'm on THIS computer." I can do that on Dropbox - I'd like to do it on evernote.
  6. Troy Since I wrote that, I've become a big fan of tags. Tags are crazy powerful, but there is a learning curve. The article the really got me started was https://michaelhyatt.com/evernote-tags/ Malcolm
  7. if anyone knows of an existing feature request similar to this, please let me know and I will delete this and up vote theirs. My search for the term "Search for special characters" turned up no results, so I created this request.
  8. Currently it is not possible to search for special characters like (pretty much any symbol other than the underscore) I have used special characters like $, %, ^, &, *, @, and # as part of my tag system and would like to be able to search for them. This came to my attention when I found that I can not search for all of my notes dealing with the programming language C# (I got back every file that had the letter "C" in it)
  9. +10 I'm a relatively new user and already I'm running into situations where I would I'd like to tell evernote: "please do not EVER these notes on a search, unless I specifically ask to see things in the archive" I'd also like to do this with tags. I've got event tags, some of them for event last year, and many upcoming events. I'd like my "archived" tags to not show up in my tag list unless I select "show all tags" I get that I can do a negative search, but I'd have to do that for all of my searches and the level of friction it adds in non-trivial.
  10. I hate the idea (and it just may work perfectly for my situation) but it makes a ton of sense, thanks. Right now I'm in the process of putting TONS of stuff in evernote, and trying to spread it out so I can see it all at the same time, or conversely chunk it down. Bottom line, is I'm giving myself the year to get some level of mastery with Evernote and I'm intending to accomplish that, you all here in the forums are helping out a ton. Thanks
  11. Hi gazumped Thanks, that does help a bit. I have a screen shot of where I'm trying to get this list. (can't figure out how to attach it.) I have a search for "evernote" and I see all the notebooks that I have the relevant notes in them, just not the stack it's in. I guess what I'd like to see is my left hand tree visually "go" to the notebook of the note that I'm clicking on.
  12. I'm using Evernote in windows and when I do a search for a document, I find the document, but I can't figure out how to tell what stack its in. I have a "notebook" column and a "title" column, but not a stack column. How do I get the stack column to show in the search results? (This is important to me because I have similarly named notebooks in my "Project" stack, and in my "Reference" stack and it's not always obvious which stack I should be looking in)
