  1. Quite possibly the worst analogy I've seen on the internet this year.
  2. +1 It's easy to accidentally alter a note and not even realize the note has been unintentionally altered. Having the option to toggle selected notes as read-only is a good compromise between easy/quick editing and preserving the integrity of notes that the user considers 'finalized' or notes the user deems important enough that he/she is willing to take the extra step to unlock for editing.
  3. The only notification options I see in the Android app are: Quick Note - add notes from notification bar And a few Work Chat notification options. Would be great to have options as to notification sound/vibration, and to turn notifications off altogether.
  4. For a note taking app, I would think that outline mode/collapsible text is far more important than further work on font styling, all of which is already available albeit not in the manner the OP would like.
  5. Are the notes you want to access in a synced notebook or a local notebook? Local notebooks are only accessible from the EN desktop app on the computer on which the notebook was created.
  6. If it's an actionable item that also contains reference material, I'll just remove whatever I used to make it actionable (either a TSW "When" tag or reminder date) and move it to my main notebook (if it wasn't already there). If it's strictly a todo item, and I don't need any record of completion, I'll just delete it. If I want a record of completion, I have a shortcut that inserts "_Completed [date/time]" in the note and then move to main notebook.
  7. Thanks for confirming via test for this lowly Plus user!
  8. Makes sense. I suppose moving the note from a sync'ed notebook to a local notebook would also wipe the note's history. So if you had a note the way you wanted it and wanted to restart the history for some reason, move it to a local notebook for a day (presumably more than sufficient for EN to detect the missing note and wipe it from the archives), then move it back to a sync'ed notebook?
  9. How long are the archives kept? In other words, if I delete a note (or part of a note's contents), how long does that data sit in the cloud?
  10. if I create a notebook and share it with another person, how do notes added to that notebook count toward the monthly data limit? In other words, as notes are added via the Web Clipper or import folders or Scannable or EN's built-in Android scanner, does the data count toward the monthly data limit of only the user who is adding the data or toward monthly data limits of everyone sharing that notebook? are notes in shared notebooks editable by everyone the notebook has been shared with?
  11. Are you performing a global search? If on Windows app, hit F6, then search. If on another version of EN, clear any search filters that have already been applied so that you are searching all notes, not some subset of notes.
  12. Specifically referring to packing lists in Evernote. I am well aware that dedicated task management apps may be better suited to packing lists, and I have used such an app (RTM) for years, but I am interested in using Evernote for this function. Any tips on using EN for packing lists? A couple of ideas I'm considering incorporating: modular lists with a master list linking to the various modular lists. E.g., toiletries list, clothing list, tech gadgets list, etc. Master packing list has note links to each modular list. And each modular list has a note link back to the master list. For an upcoming trip, you work through the lists relevant for that particular trip (e.g., for a ski trip, you include the 'ski gear' list). This saves you from having to replicate items across multiple packing lists, and from replicating additions/deletions across multiple packing lists. double checkboxes. Each item in a checklist gets 2 checkboxes. The first checkbox gets checked if this is an item to be packed on this particular trip. Second checkbox gets checked when the item is packed. Useful for when not every item in the list is necessary for a particular trip; the first check makes it easy to see what needs to be packed instead of having to either (1) re-make the pack/no-pack decision on each item as you refer back to the list, or (2) manually sort the list to move the no-pack items to the bottom of the list. For those not familiar with checkboxes in Evernote, any checkbox list is easily reusable by using the "Uncheck All" function to clear checks from checkboxes.
  13. Saw on this page that EN requires iOS 9.3 or later. Is this correct? How do people run EN on older iOS devices? I don't use iOS, but was thinking of picking up an older iPhone or iPad because most of my family is on iOS.
  14. Evernote's Android app has a built-in scanner.
  15. Do you think they are similar enough that you could use EN on an iPhone to talk (over the phone) someone who is thoroughly non-tech savvy through the basics of using EN on an iPad?
  16. My mother has an iPad and I'm trying to help her make better use of Evernote and also use Scannable. I'm doing this long distance, so mostly over the phone. I'm an Android user and since the Android and iOS apps are fairly different, I'm thinking of buying an old iPhone so I can better walk her through how to perform various actions in EN and Scannable. But this plan works best if EN and Scannable are identical on the iPad and iPhone in terms of functions and menu options, hence my question.
  17. Why not just use Dropbox to share the file? And create a link to the file in an EN note?
  18. This seems very inefficient. Why not just tag the notes accordingly? Then there's no need to create all these subfolders underneath Dropbox/Evernote Archives. And no need to create all the notebooks in EN should need to import the notes back. As you note, the export and import functions preserve tags. Use that to your advantage and you can stop messing around with all this folder and notebook creation.
  19. There aren't any Evernote company videos on this AFAIK, but there are lots of user videos. The Productivity subforum has many threads discussing this: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/279-productivity/ The thread I found most useful in terms of picking up ideas on how to use EN for task mgmt is this one:
  20. Some people use Evernote rather narrowly, such as an archive of recipes. But it is capable of so much more. For me, the real-world problem EN solves is it saves me from having to remember things - to use the EN marketing phrase, it's my "external brain".
  21. I think you just identified part of your difficulty with tags. But it seems clear you have less interest in actually learning how to use tags effectively than in griping, so carry on. As an aside, in the time you've spent on this forum complaining, you could have ported all your notes over to OneNote and been in unlimited notebook nirvana instead of still stuck in tag hell with us.
