  1. Hi Gents! And thank you, it's great to hear from you both, so to speak. @Gazumped, I'm sorry to hear your still dealing with cold weather. Unfortunately I'm right there with you in the wet part. My little corner of Canada very seldom sees any snow, but we get lot's and lot's of rain. There's a bit of a monsoon going on as I type this. @Frank.dg, I agree with Gaz, stop hogging all the sunny weather! And thank you, Gaz, but it's not quite what I'm looking for. I've been using Azendoo as my all around project & productivity software. They recently rolled out their own calendar, but it's taken so long to find a shareable calendar that had the capabilities I needed yet was easy to use. I tried Ical, Sunrise and a few others, but the Google Calender still seems to be the best fit. Sunrise was great, right up until it was sold to Microsoft. If you recall, my issue with calendars, notes, documents and reminders, is that I need to be able to share select ones with hubby, while also managing our lives and my personal projects. Azendoo is working beautifully for my needs, but it can be time consuming to manually create and edit entries that I call projects. They usually involve a series of tasks on a few different kinds of documents, including EN Notes. Zapier is the same type of program as IFTTT and there are "recipies" where I can, for example, set it up so that EN reminder notes and Google calendar events are automatically sent to Azendoo. My problem is that I've never used any kind of software like IFTTT or Zapier. When looking through the knowledge base of both programs, Zapier appears to be more user-friendly. What I can't figure out is if either program, or any other that might exist, will let me decide which EN Note and which Google Calendar events I want to send to Azendoo. I don't want everything I put in EN or my calendar automatically pushed to Azendoo; I want certain one only. I can keep doing it manually, but it's very time consuming, which sort of defeats the point of using Azendoo. I keep much of my life in EN and can't really remember how I managed before discovering it. I rely heavily on Tags and try to keep the number of Notebooks to a minimum. Evernote's search function is still the best out there, IMO. But lacking it's own native calendar and repeating reminders, I need to use other apps/programs to stay on top of things. Sigh, as usual, it's taking me forever to spit out what I'm trying to say. I'm guessing no-one's really missed that while I've been gone... Did any of the above make sense? If so, can anyone help, please?
  2. I've given up trying to use annotating in any version of Evernote. Instead, I know use a free PDF Reader and Editor called Xodo, which can be found on Google play. Then I Share, using android's native Share Function, any PDF I want to keep in Evernote. You do need to sign up for a Xodo account at there website, which you'll find a link to in the Xodo app's "Read More" area in Google play. It's easy and free. Can't beat that combination!
  3. Yup, on the Android App, it still keeps changing the formatting on some, but not all of my notes.
  4. Wow, I know I've been away from the forum for quite some change, but I didn't expect the site to change so drastically in appearance! In any case, hello to everyone! I life is treating all of you well? I have a question I'm hoping someone can answer and do so in simple language. Think tech for dummies kind of speak. I've looked on the Knowledge Bases for Evernote, Gmail, Google Calendar, Zapier and Azendoo, as well as on YouTube, but have yet to find anything that answers my specific question. And yes, I know this is probably a very stupid question coming from someone who's been using Evernote for a few years now... Please try to keep your laughing to minimum. What I want to know is how, using my android phone and tablet, to use Zapier to send specific EN notes, Gmails and Google Calendar events to Azendoo, where each "Zap" creates a new task in Azendoo. All the instructions and tutorials I've found seem to indicate that if I set up the Zap Recipes as instructed, it will send everything to Azendoo, not just the particular ones I want. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  5. It looks interesting, but for some reason I can't locate the app on Google Play. I emailed the dev so maybe he can shed some light on that. :-)
  6. Yes, I would do as JMichael suggests and upgrade your account directly from www.evernote.com A lot of folks seem to have trouble upgrading or renewing through iTunes.
  7. I just double checked and my they're working fine on my Android app. Would you mind describing exactly what you're doing when trying to use these functions? I'm wondering if perhaps there's a language barrier issue here, rather than a technical one.
  8. I haven't been here that much in a few weeks, and am really not up to backtracking through this thread, so please forgive me if I'm stating an obvious point... @Workingman and @Christozoid, I used to handle a massive paper filing system as part of my job, so I do understand where you're coming from with regards to a hierarchical system of folders and sub-folders. Not using them when I first started with EN was a huge adjustment for me, but I now, by far, prefer the Tag system. Granted, I'm not using EN in a business setting as I once did with the paper filing system, but I do recall one aspect of the the folder system that used to drive me nuts...and was equally applicable to the thousands of electronic files I processed and tracked each day. That is that even with set perameters in place for everyone who has access to the files, people will always think just enough differently from everyone one else. What makes sense to as the appropriate destination for a document, even with clearly defined guides and "rules" set out for reference. In my experience, that inevitably led to problems with some files being located in hard to find locations. The solution was to make copies of certain files - meaning those that could be applicable to more than one topic (or project) in the minds of someone accessing them, and put copies into every folder where they might look - and have a fairly elaborate cross-referencing system in place that I, as the filing gate keeper, had to set up and enforce. Hope this is making sense... With electronic files, the obvious problem with files that were worked on by more than one person, is how easily the current version can get lost or overwritten. This is where I find using the Tag system, along with a limited heirarchy of Notebook structure, Note Links (including creating a Table of Contents with clickable note links), and the use of EN's Search function, to be most effective. It allows me to cross-reference everything, track various projects and quickly drill down to find whatever I need. In my case, and unlike some of the power users, such as Gazumped, I don't find it beneficial to completely do away with a hierarchical system of Notebooks and Stacks, i.e. folders and sub-folders. But I've managed over the past couple years, with some experimenting that led to reorganizing my EN database a few times, how to reduce and limit the number of Notebooks I actually need. That includes deleting or renaming several Tags a few times. Tags can be safely deleted with having to worry about accidently losing individual Notes or entire Notebooks. (Though the latter two can be retrieved from your Trash Notebook, assuming you haven't deleted them from there too.) Tags, for me, serve the same function as making copies of my Notes (files) to put in every possibly applicable Notebook (folder). As others have pointed out, you don't want to get too carried away with Tags and end up with a ton that fast end up redundant and overwhelming. Another handy thing about them, is the ability of the desktop EN apps to apply a particular Tag to multiple Notes at the same time select by first selecting them, then adding the Tag. Tags are also a great way to identify and grab all the notes belonging to a specific project that you want to archive out of your EN database. Okay, I could keep going on about the pros of tagging for far too long, so I'll wrap it up now.
  9. Really don't have time enough to do more than leave this note. I just upgraded back to Premium status from within my Android EN app. It took me to Google Play, then to PayPal, and voila, instant Premium Status. For anyone still having trouble paying with PayPal, the trick seems to be having enough funds already sitting in your PayPal account. Cheers!
  10. Quick question for you, Phils. Do you ever plans to expand into the Android market.
  11. Sounds like a good plan. Just remember to do a final Sync before uninstalling and reinstaling the app. Also, after your Sync, first check the Web app on a desktop machine to make sure a full Sync of your entire database, was successful. Also, if you're Premium & have a note in your android app with a Notebook assisgned for offline status, move all the notes into a different, not offline status Notebook before Syncing. I'd just created a seperate temporary Notebook to move them all into until after you've reinstall the android app as per above, then move them all back into your Offline Notebook and then delete the temporary online one. I recently had to switch to a replacement phone after the power button broke off side from the (Offline Notebook thing, which I don't have), it worked out fine using the steps listed above, and had no problem when installing EN on the new phone.
  12. Yeah, like I said before, a brain F A R T.
  13. I have no experience with Scan Snap so will it to others who do to assist you. I commenting because you posted this twicem I realize it was probably just a mitake so not a biggy, just please more careful in the future. I will delete the other one now. Good luck! ☺
  14. Oh. My. God. How in the world did I manage to forget that one... I've only done it a few hundred times... Sigh, thank you, Gaz. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to crawl under a rock and die of shame.
  15. No need to apologize. Though I am a bit confused about exactly what your problem is. So if could clarify matters a bit more, we might be able to help you. Please remember that this is a User Forum, not a direct route to Evernote Customer Support. * If I understand correctly, you purchased a mobile device, tablet or a phone, aporoximately 4 or 5 months ago. Is that correct? * If so, is the device an Android model or an Apple device (like an iPad or iPhone)? * When you purchased this device, you were told that as part of the purchase, a one year Premium Evernote subscription was include, correct? * If yes to the previous collection did you sign up for Evernote and redeem your Premium status at the same time after your purchase? * The first part of your post seems to indicate the you do have an Evernote account and have been using it at least a bit, but not as a Premium User. But the last part of your post seems to say that you do have an active Premium account. Can you please clarify the above questions and also let us know if you: A) Do have an active Evernote account or not? Meaning did you ever go through the steps to set up an account in your name with your email address? If yes to question A, have you done it a second timw with a different email address? I'm asking because sometimes people accidentally create two accounts thinking something wasn't working with the first email they registered with, and use an alternate email thinking it will take them to their original account because the other info like your name is the same. Unfortunately, what that does is create two separate accounts as each Evernote account can only be linked to *one* email. C) So basically, all of the above leads me suspect that you created a Basic, free Evernote account after purchasing you device, and used it for a time before realizing it was not a Premium account. And that you recently figured out how to apply the free Premium subscription that came as part of your device purchase, but inadvertantly opened a whole new account with an alternate email address, and are now realizing the any notes created & synced in the older account, are not showing up in the newer, Premium one. And vise versa. Have I got your situation right, or have am I way off the mark? (Meaning wrong.
  16. I may just be having a major brain *****, but for the last few days I have been unable to create Note Links on the Android app. I'm back on the basic free plan (for now), and my app is up-to-date. I cannot find the Note Link option in any of the menus. Longpress makes no difference. I've never had this problem before and use them quite extensively. Does anyone know if this option was deprecated for the Basic, free plan?
  17. Actually, Morticia, I think this information should be in a locked & pinned post at the top of the General area of the forum. Hopefully one of the EN Staff Admins will see this and agree with me.
  18. Thank you. I didn't know there was a way to check the status of EN's maintance status. I've bookmarked this in my browser so I can check the next time I try and it won't connect to the EN Service. And I'm going to Evernote it. Very handy info to have so thank you again. Very much appreciated!
  19. Hi. Look at the far left icon in the green bar across the top of your screen when you open Evernote. The icon is 3 horizontal line. Tap on that to bring up a menu and select the Notebooks option, which is the 3rd choice down on it. The top of your list of Notbooks will first show the 3 most recent ones you've accessed, then all of them listed in alphabetic order. (Just realized that EN seems to have a thing about the number 3...
  20. Haha, certainly not a guru, especially compared to you, Gaz! This was a problem I grapppled with for the longest time. I even asked about is several times on the Forum, but wasn't able to clearly express what the problem was. Then a few months I responded to an Evernote Blog post in my Facebook feed and mentioned it in my reply. An EN staffer noticed and played 20 Question with me until he realized what I'd been missing the whole time... The green Elephant! Until then, I thought is was just a way to decorate the spinning disc, so never even thought to try tapping on it!
  21. Hi. I believe I know what you're referring to and it had me stumped for the longest time. When you use the Share function on your android to clip something from the internet, you'll see - briefly, so watch for it - a round elephant icon with a spinner going around it. Tap the elephant before it stops spinning. This will bring up a box showing the your Notebook default and under that, an area where you can add Tags. * To change the destination Notebook tap on it and it will bring up your Notebook Menu, where you can choose an exiting one or create a new one. Then click OK at the menu bottom. * If you want to add Tags after choosing your Notebook, then tap the Tags area to bring up your Tags Menu.
