  1. @JMichaelTX I've seen this kind of scenario several times before (enterprise is sure that all complaining users are wrong and its implementatrion is best for the user, user tries it, user is happy) and in all cases I finally agreed with the enterprise, but this time seems impossible to me to agree: Notebooks are useful for some things and tags are useful for others; trying to assume that notebooks are limited on its functionality because they are not stackable, and that you must stop using notebooks for its natural feature and use tags for two different features (tagging and stacking) trying to cover the usability lack of the notebooks is terrible and leads to error prone management. Software developers know the users are prone to committing errors and tools must help us avoid that. Also, lack of ability to manage shared work when you stop using notebooks and begin using tags turns the software much less useful when you migrate from notebooks to tags. I know. I am just trying to make the user feedback on this post even more complete adding my humble opinion about that, gathering the users feedback with the best quality is valuable for the company. I think with no doubt (I say this with all my respect) that not addressing this issue is a terrible decission from the EN team, but also know that even with this design issue, EN is still a better product than any on the competition and that is why happy-with-tags an unhappy-with-tags users are we all still using it.
  2. @all discussing here about how to replace lack of Evernote's support through using tags: your effort and sharing is great for all. But @evernote don't forget that all those techniques are nothing but workarounds for an incredible dab design of the notebooks feature by thinking the can have only two levels. "Tags" are TAGS, and "notebooks" are a synonym of what it's currently called directories in computing, applied to a system where items are called "notes". Trying to use tags as directories is a pain in the ass: Because you know that you are using something the way it wasn't intended to be used, and you know that the efforts on the development team of the product won't match you current work style. Using a software the against its design sucks. Because you know that when this finally gets addressed you won't be able to replace tags with notebooks in the end. Using a software the against its design sucks, again. Because it clobbers your tag list with pseudo notebooks. Using a software the against its design sucks - surprise! Because managing groups of notes by its tag has some usability issues vs managing a ***** notebook. Using a software the against its design sucks and it's obvious. You can't share a tag because... it's not a notebook containing notes. And that's why using a software the against its design sucks. That's only why I can achieve to imagine using only 5 minutes of my time and without joining the adventure of misusing tags. I am very surprised about @evernote not addressing this when the software is so cool, stable and mature nowadays, but also very surprised about some people here blaming others about "this is not an evernote's problem, but a problem of you because you don't know how to use the software". Greetings.
  3. Please. Using Evernote makes me feel somewhat retarded everytime I can't stack items as they should
  4. When I open a note on my android app, 99% of the times I want to edit it. It's very unusable to always have to wait until loaidng view mode and then waiting egain for edit mode to load. Or using context menu to select "edit", which is slow too. I'd like to have way for directly opening edit mode in a fast way. My suggestion is: sliding a note to the right (well, all the screen) shows the left menu. Can you implement that sliding a note to the left opens its edit mode? I'll be very grateful.

  7. Not sure if this affects only to the android app or the whole Evernote system. When I end adding some text to my notes I use to end them with a line break, so when lately I open it again to add more text I am ready to begin typing on a new line. What's more: developers have rules about always finishing a document in a line break. This unnecessary cleanup is totally bugging me. Can you pleaes remove it?
  8. Every day when I open a note I want to begin adding more text at its end. But it's hard to put the caret at the end because you must tap touch your device exactly at the right of the last character of the last line. You can slide the text up until there is white space at the bottom of the note, then you say, hey, I'll touch there on thar empty space at bottom so caret will go to the end! But it doesn't work. Please can you make that white space clickable? Thanks in advance.
