  1. Upgraded my Mac.. Did the Time Machine carry over. Even tried to re-install Evernote normally. Now my helper (Elephant in top bar) only launches if Evernote launches. aka need Evernote in my 'startup' program lists, to get to have the elephant, or at least manually start up Evernote. But before, there was a separate type of program that you could place in your login items called Evernotehelper. The functionality of the screen snap (Elephant helper) is definately something ideal for a startup program, whilst Evernote in itself is something I would rather start up when I actually
  2. Stop saying rubbish. Popped in to see how the old friend I left was doing. I paid for Evernote, for many years. I was using the product a bit less, for a few months, so let my subscription end. Was going to pay again, but the two device limit plus steep price hike, meant that I would be held ransom to Evernote, for the rest of my life. notes belonged to me, so I just moved everything, to one note, and now pay for Microsoft services, that do just as much at a fraction of the cost. I had always planned to support Evernote. I loved it. And was going to get back to it. But then th
  3. Oh give it a break... You are like an obsessed puppy. I posted some months ago, and you are still at it. Defending every move like a robot. And rest of SAME littermates, abusing new users as a gang as usual. I mean Scott summers is still here.
  4. How is it not? Trump's surveillance policy is abundantly clear.... Do americans just vote on exposed e-mails vs grabbing private parts and not listen to anything else they say? On second thought... cant be a far stretch, given the hours of air time, those two things were discussed by candidates in presidential debates on worldwide television.
  5. I saw that post, and it kills the functionality on demand completely. Especially with regard to phone use. no goodwill from this company. They forget their place, as a note taker. they have alienated a lot of people, whose whole lives don't center around Evernote. Some of those more 'casual' users, were paid users for many years, like myself.
  6. Rip Evernote.. Was a paid user for several years, but I will not commit a second more of my time and notes, to a company that requires a lifetime pay for its most fundamental use for me, which was instant access between devices. we all own a phone. So intersystem sharing impossible unless I don't have it on phone? so if I am a paid user... And then deside not to pay... Watever. I don't care if other options not as good. This is wrong on principle. we invested time in your product. We invested money, we supported it.. I recommended it to at least 100 people.. an
  7. If you consider the Cyborg element of the human, imputing and extracting information, you could consider the internet etc. as AI. If you consider complete Artificial Independent though, without the impetus of any biological organism, there is still a way to go. Its a matter of definition I guess. Either way, for example Google's algorythm's are already discerning and presenting information for us in a way that is easier to access. The origin is human input, and the output is human consumption. But in the middle, its doing something we cant do ourselves. That you could consider is artificial
  8. Interesting article: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-32628753 All this obsession on better 'productivity tools'... Maybe we are better off with type writers. Obsessions with features and how Evernote should be etc. in order to get more 'work done'... Yet I see guys like JMichael flooding the forum with every single glitch text for pages and pages each time their is a minor patch update.. Obsession with glithces... New features... Features we want, or dont want... Existent and non-existent. Obession with everything this little app has... People are disapointed and apparently looking for '
  9. I have said this countless times in previous threads... The Backspace to immediate delete in Evernote is rediculous... It should be Fn Backspace for Mac You think you are inside the document... holding backspace... And suddenly you lose 5 notes... And off you go fishing in the Trash... Sometimes you might not notice.. Which makes it even more dangerous.
  10. You were talking about 'bloat' on another thread.... This is the perfect example of bloat. There could be... But there shouldn't be.
  11. Thank you so much for clearing that up for me.... That helps a lot. I get it now.
  12. How exactly do tags work in shared notebooks? I am working collaboratively quite often with new users (Who I often make download and use Evernote). Suffice to say I am ussually doing most of the organisation of notes for them, to have some kind of order... The setting are users can: view and edit. I know I can tag notebooks any way I like... 1) Do they see/have access to my tags? Or Am I only one who can see the things I tag? 2) Can they add tags on a shared notebook? And if they add tags on my shared notebooks... Is it only for their eyes? Or do we all have the shared tags they decide
  13. I want to see more Heirarchial structures. I would like to see it in the form of 'ear-marked' tags... Where I can earmark some specific tags to Notebooks that show up next to the Notebooks in Notebook Pain. Essentially just tags with extra functionality. I.e. little red tags.. That visibly show next to the notebook I earmarked them to.. A visible hierarchy just like stacks with "clickability' to get to that 'subdivision' within the notebook they are earmarked to..... Nothing more... I think if they do that right they can satisfy the often requested sub-notebook. feature, without runni
  14. Yes Frank I personally believe you are absolutely correct.
  15. I actually agree with everything you have to say there... It makes sence and is logical... I understood the thread starters opening post differently... (Obviously you outlined what he really meant, and I probably misunderstood.... However if you read the post again with my thinking, it can make sense) I just want the ability to Drag and Drop my stacks and notebooks in any order I chose... And for them to stay there without having to rename them Alphabetically... or put wierd prefixes like --> -> Everything you say about sorting many notebooks is completely valid... We can so
  16. Although tags are allowing me to mimic certein heirarchial structures in some regard... I would like to see visible 'clickable tags' in the notebook pain.... I would like to 'earmark-colourcode' say 4 (or more) tags in a certain notebook... that when clicked on it 'that context' will take me directly to that 'sub-folder'. This would work on the listing view in notebook pain... when clicking to select a notebook... I can see the earmarked tags visible... And I can 1 click and get directly to them.. Just a thought. Hard to explain exactly what I mean... But that would make my personal experience
  17. Although personally for my own use, I don't quite need this yet... I know I would find it useful one day... And I believe a lot of people will immediately find it useful... I know many people with multiple emails... Which email do you invite them to evernote with? And also wich email do they actually use to install evernote with.... All pertinent topics. Completely valid... I can see the benefit of this suggestion.
  18. Evernote is highly adaptable with many different programs... When you start using features like the: Evernote Specific email... Or maybe saving your google phone locations, straight to evernote... by sending it to your evernote specific email... So many ways to use the standard evernote for multiple functions that other apps lack... If you are looking for new programs I would look here: You can start with the Evernote's natural program extensions by the same company... Evernote web Clipper for clipping articles in your browser straight to evernote.Skitch is a stronger version of the everno
  19. Tags have a lot of benefit for me... I often use very simple tags.. (I dont want to type large words to find things...) Say I have made tags in a notebook for Presentation as "P" Debate as "D" If I search P I get LOTS of notes... If I search D I get LOTS of notes If I search tag:P or tag:D I only get notes that were presentations... Or notes that were Debates within the Notebook... Its awesome for organisation... You can find many uses of tags... Notebooks.... And other uses for non-tagged documents... There are many situations where I have no need to tag something... There are oth
  20. Microsoft support is terrible... Even with everyone's complaints that Evernote does not listen to its members... I can honestly say they are better than any other stand-alone program I own... OneNote is not Microsoft's only program.. Its neither thought out or developed like Evernote.. They dont listen at all to support... They are even more apathetic with regards to Mac users... or any user not using windows... I spent almost 3 months without direct access to my notes through the OneNote program due to a glitch.. I had to retrieve them in my browser For all the complaining... I th
  21. Having been a heavy OneNote user before making the switch to Evernote... I honestly dont believe you will be satisfied unless you have very specific needs that are different to what Evernote offers... Only way is to try and find out... Give OneNote a chance... But its style of use is Extremely different to Evernote... Its diversity in use is also limited. I would be very interested in hearing from someone who was a heavy Evernote user and made the switch to onenote and was satisfied. Keep's use is very limited... Can be usefull.. But it just does not do what evernote does...
  22. Lots of information. seems like a pretty cool option. Thanks for the reply.
  23. Comparing Apple to Chromebooks is a huge jump in price.. Hardly the same market.. Although I guess if they do similar things why pay more... Just a question... Are chrome books much more affordable than a decent cheap Windows Laptop? Could you get a decent windows laptop for 250? Also what is the lifespan of a chromebook? I mean how often you need to update the hardware to keep up with the software... i think that also plays a role in affordability... Sorry going off topic. Just curious.
