  1. Of possible interest to folks Setting up Notion for Academic collaboration This site has died down dramatically over the last years but I value every (rare) post.
  2. Boy prices sure are higher for EN in the UK. Must be a Brexit thing.
  3. jmshrrsn commented - I looked at Devonthink and found it to be nonsensical. Note taking is meant to be just that, I'm a hard core Devonthink fan and agree with you. For myself DT is a Swiss army like tool that I use to store tons of content from all over. Its part tool and part hobby which most user don't want in their apps. However - If someone asked for a notebook recommendation - DT wouldn't make the list.
  4. FWIW - I use and like Devonthink 3.
  5. I am on Mac legacy Version 7.14.1 (458325 Direct) with auto updates disabled. Seems fine to me. I was not that traumatized by the new release as EN is not my core app as it is for many. I found the new version stable but visually distracting. Legacy works fine for me.
  6. >However is no longer happening and support is no longer available if you use an older version. Have you tried having 10 and Evernote Classic installed? it might sync to 10 and then you open via Classic
  7. I’m not having any technical issues using Mac 11.1 and EN V 10.6.9. (IMac 16GB) What are you encountering? thanks!
  8. Not disagreeing. One hard lesson (boy I'm old) 45+ years in computers taught me is trust no one with your data. The list of computers that simply disappeared overnight is endless. I remember this infamous finger to users from Circus Ponies "If you need a copy of NoteBook 4.0 (3.x and earlier don’t run on OS X El Capitan) or need technical support, you can try sending an e-mail to support@circusponies.com. There’s a chance someone will respond but no guarantees."
  9. Thanks very much for the note. I must say I’m glad to come back and discover folks aren’t arguing about the infamous price increase anymore. 😆
  10. => Riggar Sorry for the lame question - what version do YOU prefer and what version do you hate? I’ve been off Evernote for the last year due to illness and trying to figure out what version to go forward with. thanks!
  11. Hi Folks Using the MAC app "Highlights" http://highlightsapp.net I export highlighted sections of PDF's to Evernote. Oddly this action launches Parallels - Evernote Windows and pastes there. Any idea how to set my MAC Evernote as the default? (The app does not offer this option.) My thanks ~Peter
  12. I stuck it out with your price increase. But this is beyond the pale and I am done.
  13. I've heard of people recording university lectures and I am intrigued. Being profoundly hearing impaired I struggle with video free Telecon meetings. Has anyone had any success using Evernote's dictation to capture phone audio? I am also considering a more specialized app such as Naunce Dragon Anywhere. My thanks P
  14. You can create notes in EN or double click on inserted files to edit outside of EN. EN will not directly edit word files however. IMHO - Plain text files are the way to go for cross editing.
  15. Thanks Mitch. The common tag idea is a good one and I will adopt it. I wander from Ulysses to Scrivener depending on complexity of document. I find long docs with a lot of research works best in scrivener. Ulysses is my preference rowing to its superior cross device functionality.
  16. Good advice - I will give it a try. I tend to use Papers 3 for my PDF's. I'm in healthcare and they rain in non stop so management is .... a challenge.
  17. Thanks for the note. I tried Page out. Pages isn't bad as you can easily display the tex within EN. Ulysses imports as an attachment which is a bore.
  18. I use EN on Windows and OS X. I find the EN text editor insufficient. What text editors do you use to compose text outside of Evernote? FWIW I am currently using Ulysses (OS X) to compose then shoot to EN.
  19. Thanks very much. Classic in app would make most sense I figure. ~P
  20. Is there a way to insert a EN link to a specific note into my calendar? Perhaps email to myself? Oftentimes meetings flow from one to the next to the next and being able to call up the relevant note would help. I am not trying to share the note with other. I use EN OS X - IOS - Win 10 thanks! ~P
  21. Hi Ed

    You wrote "advanced note taking/keeping when you consider the features"

    Serious question - what is advanced about EN note taking? Tags? Or? 

    Thanks!

      Mostly the tagging and advanced search capabilities. It isn't a rich text environment like Word or OneNote. It supports fonts and outlines, but not much more. 

      OneNote supports keyword search, but that is about it. You cannot search by multiple tags, or exclude tags, or tell it to only search in a specific notebook, or exclude a notebook from the search. And OneNote won't OCR your PDF/Image files unless you do a hokey "insert as printout" command which renders PDFs as images in your files.

      Thank you very much for taking the time. Good points - esp. (For me) You cannot search by multiple tags, or exclude tags,

      Have a good week.
