  1. 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!
  2. Yup, on the Android App, it still keeps changing the formatting on some, but not all of my notes.
  3. 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. :-)
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Quick question for you, Phils. Do you ever plans to expand into the Android market.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. Sorry, but the max Note size for even Premium and Business users is 200 megabytes. You might want to consider a Premium account and break larger uploads into smaller chunks. https://evernote.com/contact/support/kb/#!/article/23258452
  11. Hi Papouda34, I think this might be a case of confusion regarding what type of software Evernote is and is not, so I hope this helps. It's a bit long, but I'm just trying to be thorough.
  12. Are you sucessfully syncing the UP to their Servers as the last thing you do before exiting Evernote? And syncing DOWN from the servers when you first start working in Evernote? This should be done each and every time you access Evernote from *any* device.
  13. Shot in the dark here... I wonder if it's maybe related to Window phasing out support for Internet Explorer? http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2015/03/rip-internet-explorer-the-rise-and-fall-of-an-empi.html
  14. Scott, I see that you survived the winter storms over yonder on the East Coast of Canuckville! Good to know!
  15. Awesome. Thank you for sharing! I'm sure it will be helpful for many users.
  16. You know, I find it strange that some people now don't even know how to read or write in cursive. Granted, my handwriting has gone way downhill, but I was shocked several years back when tutoring some teens to find that many had not ever been taught to read or write in cursive. A couple didn't even know how to read an analogue clock either.
  17. I must be a really slow phone tapper... I noticed that change too, but really don't find tapping my screen one more time in the title field to be all that onerous.
  18. Yes, Copy & Paste on the Android app is terrible. I get the same issues.
  19. You can have an unsynced Notebook on your desktop and if your Premium or Business, you can have one on your mobile device as well. Or you could get a second account, free or paid, and save all your private notes in that one. All you need to set up another account is an alternate email address.
  20. I'm sorry, but I don't see how you're getting that votes for feature requests has that big of impact. I do up-vote feature requests that appeal to me, but also know this forum is just one of Evernote's product feedback avenues. Maybe I am misunderstanding what you're saying? (Yes, I followed the link to the relevent threads.)
  21. Hi Pete, sorry if you misunderstood my intenions. I wasn't trying to imply that you represent EN or that you think you do. I just wanted to make it clear for the sake of anyone who reads this Thread, especially new Forum Members, that they are free to suggest whatever they would like to see Evernote do or add. And your post sounded a bit like you were trying to shut down the conversation using words like, "...it's pointless because..." Regardless of Evernote's change in direction more for the business market, it's still a great for individual users like us. As such, I don't think we should be discouraging folks from posting Feature Requests, suggestions or any other thoughts they have about anything to do with Evernote Also, I'm not entirely sure if submitting Feature Requests directly to EN through Support Ticket, is anymore useful than posting them here on the Forum. Either way, they get them and once it's in their hands, we, as users, have done all we can. But at least on the Forum, if it's a widely desired feature and large numbers of users chime in to support it, then we can present a united front to EN so they can't later says their wasn't enough users unterest to impliment a much wanted Fearure. But I wasn't trying to insinuate anything about you, Pete. You're opinions, insights and thoughts are every bit as valif as everyone elses!
  22. Sorry, Pete, I have to disagree that it's pointless to discuss. Evernote provides this forum as one of the ways they get customer feedback and staff have mentioned a few times that feature requests and suggestion are welcome. Does that mean this request or any other will actually be implemented? Probably not, but it's really not our place to summarily shut down suggestion from other users. We don't speak for Evernote. ☺ It's pointless to discuss this because it is unlikely Evernote will go down this path in view of the fact that they are adding features for their business users particularly, and those can be turned off.
