  1. The last changed note is always the first in the merged note. The workaround is: make changes to notes in reverse order. I usually add and delete a dot in note title to make the note I want first be the last modified one. It requires some minimum thinking but works.
  2. Great that there are new cool features. Where are fixes to the editor? Formatting, lists, copying to other apps - this is what half of this forum is waiting for. We really want to do real work in Evernote.
  3. Exactly. This is how it was supposed to work from Day 1, I guess.
  4. Yep, basic notes are OK, but what do I find at www.evernote.com - company's website. Here you are: I attach a screenshot, too. This is not just basic notes. If you look at the title of their website, you will find this: Again, work, not just basiv notes. Work means Office in most cases. Even mighty Apple's productivity suite is not very popular in comparison to Office. I am (un)lucky enough to be able to work anywhere I like. I can work on my stuff at the office, in my car, in my bedroom. Sometimes I want to add something while gardening or in the middle of the forrest when I am cycling with kids. I even have something to add while reading in bed before falling asleep. Evernote is great in letting me capture my thoughts in all these situations. It saves me a ton of time. And then, when the time to submit the document comes, I lose all my savings fighting with formatting. There must be a better way. Please find it, I am sure you can.
  5. Evernote, You are excellent in collecting things. I was trying to leave you but I failed. There is no other tool that makes cross-platform collection so well. Your OCR & search features are great, too. It makes me put nearly everything I save to my drive into Evernote, only to be able to find it in the future. But there are two areas where you suck and why I am trying to leave you (without success so far). The editor Pasting lists, numbered lists, nested lists into Word / Google Doc does not work. Formatting is lost and I need to do my work in Word again. Tables? Same story, no matter if I paste to Excel or Google Doc. Here’s this note pasted into Word It is extremely important to have an editor in which one can do the work before it gets copied into Word and sent forward. I understand Mr. Libin set a goal to destroy Office but, come on, you’re not 13-year old boy. Your customers are professionals. They use you not only to collect tiny pieces of information, but prepare real documents, do real work in a friendly environment. I love all the ways you let me collect screenshots while writing a report. Just one click and the image is there - right where I need it. One more click and I can annotate it. No need to leave Evernote whili producing it. Additional insight during commute? No problem, I add it into my report on the phone. But when the document is ready I need a way to export my work to real world. I am not going to share it via workchat or via your Evernote-branded share URL. At the moment I just copy the note content into Word / Google Doc and spend time fixing formatting. This makes me try to leave you, Evernote. I am not paid to fix formatting. You need to find a way to export to .docx and Google Docs as there are current business standards. Otherwise, there is no way individual business users are going to adopt you on wider scale. Example: I am Evernote Premium user and really love it. I have 5 people at my very project whom I would like to recommend you as a full-stack solution. But I cannot because of the editor. I am sure there are millions like me. 2. Sync - it works poorly. Takes to much time to sync notes. When is the Apple-like sync coming? It should be syncing all my changes all the time, not just every X minutes. I know you can do it better. Prioritize it and get it finally done. Sync every X minutes is like 1999. Thanks in advance

  7. I appreciate your input and effort to write that many words. That's a weird theory, though. For two reasons. 1. Lack of logic. One simple example would be the Drafts app that allows basic notetaking with "Save to Evernote" option. To "be nice" to this developer, Evernote should give up the notetaking part. 2. The focus. Any company that wants to suceed has only one thing to look at and focus at. That thing is The Final Customer. Not the supplier, not the distribution partner, not the 3rd party developer, but the final Customer. If Final Customer is not happy, they do not spend money with the company and such company closes shop. End of story. So, although my iCal implementation request may not be something they implement, I wouldn't be saying it because of the 3rd party developers, but rather by lack of popularity of my suggested feature. I think I am done with this discussion. I submitted a feature request and explained at lenght why I want it and how it should work. Have a nice day.
  8. Yeah, but that moves me back to manual adding to calendar. This dragging, although manual too, feels better than simple copy/paste. I guess that's more psychology than real problem. BTW. if I use a classic link on my Mac, will that work properly on the iphone?
  9. I only do scheduling with Evernote once per week when I do my Weekly Review. So it is survivable. I would be adding Reminders while looking at Calendar anyway. Integration would save me time on copying Titles, etc. Major problem for me now is: when I click on the Note link in Calendar it opens the Note in Safari and only after that opens the Note in Evernote. Any idea how to omit the Safari part? It takes up to 10 seconds for the Note to load.
  10. Thanks for that Frank.dg. I have tried Sunrise in the past. A nice app, but it has some limitations. For example, all Evernote notes are only 1-hour-long events and you cannot change it. It generates holes in my calendaring when I schedule 4 hours of work on a note. Also, my target is to use as few apps as possible. I am tired of sync issues, different formats, discovering new workflows and limitations. One complete solution is the Holy Grail and Evernote is damn close to it for me when it comes to my work & life organisation. Thus, my little request.
  11. I think there should be no such discussion. Export to iCal is a basic feature. No magic discovery is required. The standard is like 20 years old. A small project that can work on all platforms and make lots lots of users happy (user forums are not even 0,001% of Evernote user base). What's not to like about it. For now, I: Open Evernote and Calendar together using Split View Drag a Note to a desired position in Calendar. Note's URL becomes Event's title. I cut the Note's URL and paste into the URL section of the Event. I copy Note's title into Event's title field. I set all other Event characteristics (duration, location, etc.). I save the Event.
  12. Thanks, tried it but it asked me for my Apple Password. Thanks, but no thanks.
  13. Evernote doesmany things: note taking, scanning, OCRing, searching, presenting to name a few. I see nothing wrong in asking for more on a public forum. To be honest, if an app provides any time-related functionality (like reminders) a simple calendar feed should be standard feature accompanying this functionality. iCal is a standard format, so there is just one output required. There are plenty ways to handle tasks management in Evernote. From checkboxes within notes to using more advanced frameworks like the one I described here, one can use the app according to her needs. For me, Evernote is the best task management software in the world and I have tried many systems and apps. I see no reason to sign up for another app that charges even more than Evernote in my country for just one feature. Also, I am not sure this is the right forum to hard sell non-evernote software. Thanks for your kind answer though.
  14. I want to have everything in my calendar. Since I do most of my work in Evernote and use notes as to-dos as described here, I would like to avoid other stuff. If I need to do something, I create a note and add a reminder for the day when I plan to work on it. If I could see them in my calendar, I would not need to create events by hand
  15. Thanks DTLow. I use two notebooks for better efficiency. Here's my workflow. I have two notebooks: 1-Actions Pending - contains things to do 2-Cabinet - contains things done and reference material I have four tags. 0-Now 1-Next 2-Later 3-Waiting I have created the following saved searches in my Shortcut bar. I paste the search recipe in bold. !Inbox - notebook:"1-Actions Pending" -tag:* - any new note without a tag shows up here 0-Now - notebook:"1-Actions Pending" tag:"0-Now" - if I decide this is a note I am going to work this week, it gets the 0-Now tag. This search is supposed to be empty by my next Weekly Review. I try to add reminderc to each note when planning my week. 1-Next - notebook:"1-Actions Pending" tag:"1-Next" - if something needs to be done in near future, it gets the 1-Next tag. Reviewed weekly. 2-Later - notebook:"1-Actions Pending" tag:"2-Later" - ideas for further future, kind of Maybe/Later. Reviewed more or less monthly. 3-Waiting - notebook:"1-Actions Pending" tag:"3-Waiting" - things I am waiting for from other people. I usually send a request e-mail and add my Evernote email to the BCC field. I tag them with the 3-Waiting tag during the weekly review. That's it. Now, whenever the task is done, I change the notebook from 1-Actions Pending to 2-Cabinet (ctrl+cmd+m shortcut for speed). I end up with all stuff in my Evernote account. Of course I use other tags for convenience but these are my backbone. Now, if only the Reminders could work well with iCal, it would be a perfect solution :-)
