  1. Hi I've just developed problem which i can't get to the bottom of. I'm pasting plain text into an Evernote note, all hard line breaks etc. have been removed, the content is pure simple plain text, about two pages and a number of paragraphs. The text pastes in just fine and in the note everything wraps properly and looks exactly as it should, all good so far. However, if I share that note online so that some folks can read it the words at some of the line ends are are split so that say the word "sausage" might have the letters "sau" at the end of a line and then the letters "sage" would be on the next line. This makes it very difficult to read and it looks just terrible, how do I stop this happening? I've never seen this behaviour before. My OS and version of Evernote are both up to date. Thanks, Q
  2. Hi I'm using the Mac desktop version of Evernote (6.1), Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5. I used to be able to get an internal link by selecting the "Copy Note Link" from the menu and I could paste this into another note to link the two together. When I try to do this now I get a VERY long https://www.evernote.....link when I paste into another note which is not what I want. I have read a number of forums and have tried pressing the alt key when going to get the note link and this brings up the option to copy a classic note link which I thought would solve my problem. I duly selected this option but still when I copy the classic note link and paste that into another note I still get a long link which begins: evernote:///view/21474...... This is still not what I want and it is very untidy, I used to get a link which simply gave the title of the note and that is what I would like to continue to do. How do I resolve this problem, it's a huge retrograde step. I've read all the four posts on this that I can find and they all seem to suggest that the "Copy Classic Note Link" is the solution but for me at least it isn't. Many thanks.
  3. Well, I've tried this every way that's been suggested and I am now completely unable to get the old Internal-to-Evernote links that i used all the time, only a web link which is useless to me for much of the time. OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite, Evernote 6.1 :-( The option to copy the classic note link appears just fine but when I have copied it and then paste it within Evernote it's just a web link no matter what I do.
  4. @Wordsgood - I agree entirely, a simple solution is for people to use a diary if recurring reminders are that important. I use Evernote for practically everything but for some things such as managing future appointments etc. etc. a diary is the perfect tool.
  5. Well, I've raised a support ticket and we shall see what happens. TBH I'm less worried about the monthly allowance than I am about the slow but sure guzzling of my device storage if I were to switch to using the iOS application Post-It scanning feature. I'll report back when I hear something. Q
  6. Hi The large file size per note in practical terms means that if one were to buy one of the Evernote Post-It holders with a block of the four colours in it one would be buying 4x90 = 360 individual Post-Its. On the assumption that if one is going to use these special Post-Its, which are more expensive than standard Post-Its, one is going to "scan" them in storage terms this single holder of Post-Its will convert to 190MB of device storage being consumed, which is significant for what I feel is a very small data volume. To scan the same number of Post-Its using say a ScanSnap scanner would create 360 files with a total storage consumption of <11MB. Q
  7. Hi Taking a photo of the Post-It with the device camera without using the Evernote iOS application results in a file size which is approximately double the size when taken using the camera via the Evernote application so no gains there but worth a shot so thanks for the thought! So far in space terms the best option appears to be to scan the Post-Its using a ScanSnap scanner or the like which is fine if you have one available to you where you happen to be! It's a shame the file sizes are so large using the iOS application as, for me at least, this is just wasting device space I can make better use of. Might try the support ticket route. Q
  8. Hi I've just started tinkering with snapping photos of Post-It notes using an iPad. I'm just using standard white Post-It notes and writing on the note with a black pen. An average Post-It note as I plan to use them will contain about 30-50 words. What I can't understand is why the Post-Its, when they appear in Evernote actually occupy about 0.5MB (500 kilobytes) per 9cmx9cm sheet which sounds like a lot of storage for such a small amount of information. I'm a bit reluctant to go down this route and burn through a great load of storage when the equivalent information typed directly into a note would only be around 700 bytes. Just looks to me as if I am using approximately 10x the storage for the same information? The other problem when using a mobile device, here anyway, comes if you snap say 6 Post-Its this can cause quite a problem to upload the resulting 3MB file over the mobile network. If I scan a single Post-It with my scanner it comes out with a file size of 29 kilobytes but if I want the OCR function in Evernote to work it has to be scanned to a JPEG file so only one Post-It can be scanned per note. Any advice would be much appreciated as this seems to be an excellent feature but very memory and bandwidth hungry, unless I'm doing something wrong. Thanks, Q
  9. Thanks ScottLougheed, that's what I was doing but I was sure there must be a better way but obviously not. At least I now know I'm doing the best I can with the iPad version so I'll probably ignore it and check the email alert! Q
  10. Hi I'm sure I'm doing something stupid here but I just can't spot what I'm missing. Using EN on an iPad, when a reminder comes up the EN icon on the home screen of the iPad has a red alert flag on it to show that something or several things has become due. Is there somewhere within the application itself when I open it that shows me what these alerts actually are? I've looked everywhere I can think of but can't find a readily available listing of what these alerts are, I end up looking at them in my email which just seems a bit inefficient. Thanks for any help anyone can offer. Q
  11. Hi I've been having a hard look at this combination, in particular how it might work for incorporating handwritten notes into Evernote and having them indexed and efficiently searchable. As part of the process I did some practical trials of different approaches and the outcomes may be of interest to those working out their own workflows. The opinions expressed apply purely to my own approach to the issues and are not intended to be the answers for everyone! I wrote this up as an Evernote note, the link is below: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s295/sh/bb3d6095-7d18-4740-ab19-9840b7cdc327/b2b70536c1a365cedfb7da07cce1330c Q
  12. Hi I don't know if anyone has any bright ideas about this but it's driving me crazy. I'm using an iMac with Mavericks which in all respects is working perfectly. I also use a MacBook Pro and an iPad Air (iOS7), all these devices run Evernote and all connect to the same wireless router. The problem is with the iPad, it works absolutely fine with all other applications but when I use Evernote it almost immediately disconnects from the WiFi and will not reconnect, I just get the dreaded cannot connect message. I've tried deleting the network and reinstating it, i've tried removing the network and resetting it. Been through the switch on airplane mode, shut down and then start up again route but still I'm unable to reconnect the WiFi. Whilst all these connection problems are going on the iMac and MacBook continue to work normally so the WiFi is there and the broadband is working just fine but something is left hanging which prevents the iPad connecting again. All I can do is reset the router itself and then the iPad will reconnect, but will after a very short time drop the connection again. Any advice or suggestions would be very much appreciated. Q
  13. GrumpyMonkey Thanks for the links, I was interested in the "stripping out text of PDFs using Automator" suggestion and that may be useful to me. I have limited experience of Automator other than a couple of very simple tasks, I'm going to investigate this further, I'm starting with the link below if anyone is interested: http://www.macworld.com/article/2042365/automator-workflow-of-the-month-powerful-pdf-tricks.html Thanks again.
  14. Than you again for the insights and thoughts on this. For sure it's a limitation and I think often the most important thing is to understand the limitations and to work with them. For me the answer is going to be to use the MacBook for the majority of tasks when offline and to use the iPad for convenience when significant searching is unlikely to be required. At least with the offline notebooks I've got the information with me even if it takes more digging to find it. That said I think it would be a significant improvement if PDF content WAS searched when offline when using iOS.
  15. Thanks for the reply. No, the notebooks ARE set to be accessible offline and I can open the individual notes and open their attached PDFs offline without any problem at all. Your last para hits the nail on the head, it's when I do a search that the issue arises. So, if I'm out on the road (offline) and wanted to search a bunch of notes with PDFs attached the search does not look in the PDFs but only the note text itself, until you go online again. Just seems really odd to me as the concept of having notebooks available offline should I feel also include the ability to search the documents (PDFs) attached to those notes/notebooks. This is certainly a -ve for me as huge chunk of my material is attached PDFs which are essentially a search "black hole" when I'm offline I hope we do get an explanation, I can't think of anything other than the one I suggested.
