  1. No real pre-planning required - it can build, grow and adjust as you want to add to it. The "dashboard" note is merely a spot for extra shortcuts if a person wants to think of them that way. And as your collection of notes "grows" you can simply add shortcuts (links to new notes into it). For example, when I first added "fitness" into my main dashboard page, it was a one page note that just had a couple of goals - lose 20 pounds, improve on my cardio, etc. I added a few lines to show my (then failed) attempts at weight loss into that one page. Then, 6 months ago, I got serious about my fitness - the fitness note then had to split off to adjust for my changes - and now I have a link out to fitness journaling items, my body and weight composition reports, fitness goals, fitness challenges and snapshots of my daily workout plans. There were no changes to the main dashboard page, the the second "fitness" page, merely changed to accommodate the extra links. What really happened was that "fitness" note simply turned into a second "dashboard" page - solely about my fitness level. Similar happened to my "scuba" notes - I had a simple note that showed by current diver certification and a basic list of dives to date. Last winter I decided to ramp up my training, take some extra courses, more certifications and do a lot more diving - again - that one "scuba" page morphed out into the related categories - "certifications", "dive log", ":gear I own", etc. No extra planning was really required - it just grows. Hope that helps a bit, let me know if you have some questions.
  2. No it isn't possible to link to other notebooks with Evernote "as-is". A popular third party service a lot of us use is called "Filterize.net". You could utilize their service to automatically generate a table of contents list of every note in a particular notebook if you wanted (these table of content lists can be generated with any type of Evernote search).
  3. I might have a gone a bit "overkill" with the emoji's - but then, my eyes are drawn to the specific things I need when I do open the dashboard note, so they definitely help.
  4. Have to disqualify myself right out of the gate as I'm Canadian... but... here's my current dashboard note. As you can see, it is setup with basically just a slew of 'note links' - I wanted it to be mobile device friendly too so no wide table columns where I would have issues with scrolling left/right too to get to notes - so the two left columns are the high important items that I can scroll and tap on with mobile devices. I have a basic image banner on the top of the page (I do this with a lot of other 'master notes' as well - just to add some splash of color/etc), then a basic 3 column table with some note links - each of those note links are for a master note too - I run everything from my grocery list to major multi million dollar project management out of evernote and the bulk of it starts right here (well, main work stuff has it's own dashboard). Example: my "scuba" entry under reference get's me into my scuba diver "log book" - which is a master note showing me all my current scuba diving certifications, planned certifications, tasks (rescue course re-certifications), and a link out to my scuba diving travel ideas note. Of course, my scuba log book master note wouldn't be complete without a link to my scuba diving log book - with details and photos from every dive - and yes, this is all in Evernote too. Evernote also is a CRM for me - so you can see a few people listed under "Important" - I have another master note that breaks down my people based on friends, professional, business, etc. Significant actions with "people" get tagged with their name and a "-chronology" suffix (ie ejohn-chronology) - my CRM section assembles all those notes into a chronological list so when I drill down to the person in the CRM (or the main dashboard) I get a chronological list of my communications with that person - and even other reference notes that I may have tagged with their info (ie assigned work projects, home projects, etc). Anyway, I could go on and on about this, but shall cut my rambling short here. Let me know if you have questions on more of my setup or want some 'secondary' master page photos. Thought I'd update my post and show a 'secondary' dashboard - this one shows up when I click 'health' on the main dashboard. All those other links on the primary go to a second 'dashboard' note like this one - just related to the topic instead:
  5. Thanks for looking into this @Em Gee - here's some extra info - and new observations... Once the note item is shared into Evernote, via the iOS share sheet, I might be 'minutes' before doing a sync on a Windows machine to do some note edits. In some cases, it's hours. Rarely is the iOS device that I used to create the note (via the Share to Evernote function) is used to open Everenote for reference and even more rarely I open it to do any edits since the Windows laptop is right there beside me as well - or I'm otherwise occupied and know I can just deal with the created note on Windows later. (step 1 to 2). The reversed changes normally show up a day later (step 3). Between steps 2 and 3, the iOS client is generally not used - Evernote not opened - but there could be other notes that were created via the share to evernote function. I might open Evernote on a 3rd ipad though to review notes. My work flow has 2 Windows laptops running, an iphone and 2 ipads.. The iphone and one ipad I generally don't even open Evernote note - just use the camera for photos to send into evernote, or ipad screen shots of a mapping application. iOS version that I'm looking at right now is 8.23.370265. *** Important observation: I opened Evernote on this ipad for the first time in quite some time (to get that version #) - and noticed a bunch of notes I collected on it this morning are tagged for syncing.... BUT they were already synced into Evernote (Windows) - these were screen shot captures from this same ipad earlier today. I dealt with them on Windows - tagged/titled/deleted/etc. Now I open Evernote on ipad and see these notes still here and resyncing. I jump back to Windows Evernote hit sync and ALL these notes are returning! stripped of their prior changes (tags remain). No note history on the ones I've checked. (tried to grab a screen shot, but it didn't save). Jumped to the iphone and followed the same as above - low and behold - another note - this one from yesterday (took a photo on iphone, used share sheet to send to evernote - it synced into windows - was titled, tagged and moved into a different notebook than my default). The sync icon was on the note and I jump back to windows, hit sync and it's returned to my inbox (default) notebook, tag remains, but stripped of it's title. Created date is correct - but time appears wrong (it shows a few hours later than I when I think I created this note). It then shows an updated date of today - but a few hours ago (might have been correct for when I set the title). Here is the iphone screen shot when I opened Evernote. This upload icon is on a note that was generated via camera app yesterday and shared into evernote via sharesheet. Evernote on this iphone was NOT opened after this was done - BUT the note shows in Windows after a sync. It was titled, tagged, and moved to a notebook. After seeing the above, I let it sync - and then jump to Windows... hit sync and the note reappears in the default notebook - stripped of changes except for the tags. See below: Doing all this - it looks to me like we're definitely into an iOS issue - even though the note is getting generated. I'm wondering if I do these 'share sheet' note creations then open Evernote on the iOS device, let it sync - then sync on Windows if this problem would not occur? I'll maybe try that tomorrow - if it does "fix" my problem, that's great - BUT to me this would still represent a significant bug - I should be able to create notes via these 'shortcuts' and not have to worry about data loss occurring a day later. Hopefully all this rambling on helps a bit!
  6. 😬 DATA LOSS continues between ios and windows devices. Maybe this is more of an ios bug or internal Evernote systems bug than Windows bug? Either way... it needs addressed. Following up on my prior post of data loss when syncing between Windows and iOS devices - here's my morning 'report' and example. Luckily I can access note history and recover the note... then I just need to re-assign it's link into my master note table of contents.
  7. Evernote, I love you - but this is really annoying... you really need to fix whatever is happening with cross platform syncing that results in ** DATA LOSS ** 😬. See screen shot. This is just one example. Yesterday, I had 47 notes reappear in my inbox stripped of any changes. Luckily they weren't important and headed for the trash bin anyway. BUT, I do get notes popping back up into the inbox stripped of data that I'd prefer not to have to figure out again. My workout capture below isn't a big deal - it's easy to put the data back - but my work flow in EVERY one of these cases is from a note that originates on iphone or ipad. I think (don't quote me on this), but I think the note is always generated via the 'share sheet' menu on ipad - I know my workout screen shot is a camera shot, then shared into Evernote... and the other notes I mentioned above were screen shots from a different ipad app that I marked up with ipad pen and then shared as a new note into Evernote on that ipad. Then I end up on the windows machine, sync, make changes, re-title, move to notebooks, etc. A day (or so - I haven't noticed a pattern) later, I'll get the note back into my default notebook - stripped of those changes - aside from tags (usually - but I haven't watched enough to see). I think this is strictly limited to image based notes (or screen shots) that - again - were created with a "share sheet task to evernote") - I haven't seen noticed it happen with text based notes directly created on ipad or via one of my siri shortcuts. I've made comment about this problem quite some time ago, but honestly think it's gotten worse since then. Seeing a fix for this would be awesome!
  8. As you can see in the image, there is a selected range of text (under my "reference" heading). 1) selecting a color at the point I have captured the screen you would expect to change the color of the highlighted text. This sort of works as expected - with every color except black. In which case, some lines remain green. 2) just noticed additional behavior - changing the color the highlighted text also changes colors of 'various' lines above (the red colored text was originally dark grey since I can't use black). I'll stick with my dark grey colors to avoid the black problem, but someone might want to look further into this.
  9. Were you on the "web wrapper" beta app perhaps? That's what it sounds like if you had a blue icon at one point. I have over 50,000 notes and that 'web wrapper' application was useless to me although I did try to use it. What you likely ended up downloading now is the native windows desktop application instead (there are beta versions for that as well as the actual release versions). This would also explain your couldn't open "page" error you mention (being on the web wrapper app). Like @jefito says, post what you've got for a version number and someone can clarify.
  10. Sadly, I'm seeing a lot of sync issues between working on ios and windows desktop application. I get notes coming back, titles reverting back to "untitled" and more. Usually the tags stay put, but I can't confirm that as I'm usually just frustrated at the point of having notes re-appear in my inbox after already dealing with them and filing/tagging/titling them. I've seen this across various versions of both Windows and iOS too. Reported in the past too.
  11. No reboot required for me - although I did "prepare" for a reboot just in case.
  12. Seeing this too - although, using links in a secondary window isn't a part of my normal work flow at all so I'd likely have never noticed this. This being said... I just tested the prior version for this quirk and found the results "spotty" - sometimes links would follow in the secondary window, sometimes they'd only open in the main window. I found a some notes that stayed consistent - wonder if it has something to do with the link being generated when one creates a note link?
  13. 1) Seeing a lot of crashes - just closes with no warning/no info. This is largely occurring when I drag an image from Evernote into an Outlook email - doesn't happen every time, but 'frequently' - which is 100% more than the prior version of EN. 2) in the note window, I get the text input mouse icon (upper case "I" with serifs looking pointer - sorry, the name of it eludes me) - This seems normal - except over links - I can still click a link and it goes to the link, but this mouse cursor stood out to me - prior version was the hand and pointed finger icon. In full disclosure, I probably need to reboot this laptop anyway - maybe the problems will go away.
  14. 52,838 notes as of today for me (database is over 20gb)... Everything from PDF's, photos, other images, scans, basic text notes, etc. I have no performance problems on any of my laptops (that a reboot doesn't solve - and usually the performance of the entire computer is an issue - not limited to EN).
  15. Image annotation bug where the image gets 'broken' seems to be back... or at least for me it's happening - unless "Filterize" is causing some confusion and sync issues. Anyone else seeing this? I can right click on it and 'save attachments' (to desktop for example) and the image is properly saved.
