  1. Going Electron is like getting a big tattoo. There’s no turning back. And like those who have tattoos, the Electron developers/C-Suite managers will always justify their decision. 😉
  2. Thanks for the replies. I've resolved my own confusion on this matter. One needs to search for each tag sequentially using the Search Box -- and using not the tag icon. Agree with above comments that it would be much better if all the related tags showed up after searching on one tag, rather than just a limited subset of suggestions based on an algorithm. The only way it works under the current design is if you remember all of the related tags.
  3. A few weeks ago, it was possible to search for a tag in Evernote 10 Web, say "portland", and then when you clicked in the search box, a filter was applied such that all the other tags that were associated with notes tagged "portland" were offered, in my case: "food", "accommodations", "transportation", "tourism", "travel". This functionality allowed the user to quickly drill down on related tags to find, say, all notes regarding food in Portland. This functionality is now removed from Evernote 10 Web, and that's quite frustrating. I'm still on Evernote Legacy for the Mac. Have users of E
  4. I've had 100% success in the import process from Evernote to Keep It (including retaining Evernote tags), but I'm going slow with the import process in order to learn Keep It well, and in order to build a new work flow. I figure that I have a year before Big Sur is surpassed by the next MacOS upgrade, and at that point legacy Evernote will be history. Keep it has several note format options (markdown, plain text, and rich text) as well as a "Keep It" format. I believe the import-from-evernote process coverts notes into the "Keep It" format...which I ultimately don't want for any notes tha
  5. Hi Pbpamela, I like the Scanner Pro app on my phone because I can use it the moment I receive a receipt (don't have to wait until I get home to use my ScanSnap). It's so fast, easy, and precise. It saves scans in my iphone, or uploads them to iCloud, Dropbox, Evernote, etc. They're all safe cloud services. Regarding your problem with naming files, if the problem is occurring in Keep It, you can contact the developer, and he will answer your questions quickly. Hope that helps
  6. PbPamela, this only works with Apple Mail. You can, however, read your Gmail within Apple Mail.
  7. Hi Pbpamela, Instructions on use of Keep It, including mail extensions, can be found at: https://reinventedsoftware.com/support/keepit.html The developer provides an Automator Workflow and two Applescripts for Mail. I use the Automator Workflow and created a keyboard combination in System Preferences for saving mail into Keep It. Very easy to save specific emails, and as I mentioned previously, emails stored in Keep It have links back to the original emails. For scanning receipts, I generally use Scanner Pro on my iPhone and then use the iOS extension to upload PDFs to Keep It (
  8. I haven’t tried Joplin, but have spent the last month using and comparing Notion and Keep It (Apple only -- and not to be confused with Google Keep). Although Notion is powerful, the Evernote debacle taught me an important lesson which is that all files should be stored in your primary directory in a commonly-used, archival-friendly format. Keep It meets that standard, as all files are stored in the Finder... and can be stored as Rich Text. In addition, PDFs, PNGs, JPGs, Word, Excel, etc are supported. This means all notes are stored in common formats in the Finder, and are securely bac
  9. Eric is commenting on Google Keep. My post was regarding “Keep It”, a totally different Apple-only product.
  10. And I almost forgot to mention that the web clipping function in Keep It is fantastic -- with an option to save in PDF format. Plus, there's an AppleScript option that saves email from Apple Mail -- and includes an embedded link that reopens the email in Apple Mail.
  11. I have spent the last month using and comparing Notion and Keep It. Although Notion is powerful, the Evernote debacle taught me an important lesson which is that all files should be stored in your primary directory (MacOS Finder for me). Keep It meets that standard, as all files are stored in the Finder and are securely backed-up and synced through iCloud to iOS and other Macs, plus are plus backed-up incrementally in Time Machine. Keep It is fantastic in so many ways. Coming from Evernote, I appreciate the combination of unlimited nested folders and a much better implementation of tags.
  12. Is the legacy version going to be updated commensurate with future MacOS upgrades? Unlikely. MacOS Big Sur will be released soon. There are enough changes for Apple to label it MacOS 11. Will Evernote 10 be fully functional in time for Big Sur? Unlikely. I suspect that legacy Evernote users will have to delay upgrading to Big Sur if they want full Evernote functionality and thus be forced to remain in the legacy version of Evernote. The clock is ticking.
  13. I'll add that internal links even work on my iPhone! I use this feature all day long, as my job is on the go. I set up the internal links on my computer the night before (to-do's in Things that link to Evernote), and then get work done using my iPhone throughout the day -- the links open directly into Evernote in iOS (no web interface). Such an awesome productivity enhancement!
  14. Internal links are central to my workflow. When I discovered that I could put Evernote internal links into my to-do app (Things 3), my Kanban Board (Kanbanier), and into my calendar, and documents, etc, ... my workflow/productivity system was on steroids! I suspect that Evernote knows that only a small percent of users use internal links and have decided to deprecate them. The situation may be similar to tags (not on the chopping block, but de-emphasized). According to Ian Small's interview on The Paperless Movement (YouTube), only 2% of users use tags, so they are not important enough to rec
