  1. Mike P's post in Searching in specific folder was marked as the answer   
    Personally I like the current default. If I search, I normally want to search everywhere. If I want to search a specific folder the extra effort of clicking "add filter" below the search bar seems a small price to pay.
  2. Mike P's post in Create new tag during web clipping was marked as the answer   
    Just type in the tag name in the box, ignore the suggestions of existing tags and hit enter. Obviously if you have any sort of tag hierarchy you will need to then move it in the app.
  3. Mike P's post in Creating a new note in a new window ? was marked as the answer   
    alt-ctrl-N is a global keyboard shortcut on Windows and will create a new note in a new window even if you do not have EN open infront of you. You don't say which operating system you are using but there will be an equivalent shorcut for mac.
  4. Mike P's post in Is there any way to keep my Evernote Web logged in and not having to log in each time I want to use it? was marked as the answer   
    Do you tick "remember me for 30 days" on the logon screen?
  5. Mike P's post in Allow us to enter text into our notes even if "HTML" was marked as the answer   
    For me the html box normally comes from text add using the webclipper or by emailing a note into my ccount although I have ocassionally come across old notes that seem to have it for no apparent reason. This new feature is EN's attempt to cope with increasingly complex websites which often get messed up if converted into EN's native format. You can remove the html box by using "simplify and make editable" (wand icon which appears when you hover over teh html text header) or cliupping as simplified article in the first place. Both approaches will probably mess up the formatting.
  6. Mike P's post in Search results ordering - what is the order was marked as the answer   
    For me it is ordered by reverese date created. I think once you change it, it remembers for future searches. 
  7. Mike P's post in Pasting in "Add tag" input box was marked as the answer   
    EN seems to expect anything pasted into the add tag area to be a fully formed tag and not an addition to what is already there. This may be related to the fact that you can paste a list of comma separated tags directly into this field and EN parses them into separate tags.
    The work around is to use the edit tags menu (alt-ctrl-T). It's not a great name because you can add tags as well. If you paste into the search box it adds to whatever is there and then allows you to add further characters before creating the new tag.
    Here I typed "@", then pasted "everything" and finally typed "_"

  8. Mike P's post in Evernote opening with a search was marked as the answer   
    In my experience you can decide what view you want to open in by doing the following:
    Go to the desired view Completely close down EN using either File -> Quit Evernote or quit EN from the elephant icon. Do not just close Evernote using the X. Check that the elephant icon in the task area has gone.  Next time you open EN it will remember the last view
  9. Mike P's post in Hide unassigned tags in the dialogue Ctr-Alt-T was marked as the answer   
    OK I understand now. The basic functionaility is still there but you cannot hide unassigned tags as you say and selected tags are hidden within the hierarchy. I agree that it is not as easy as it should be. I like the cycle between a dash and a tick when the tag goes from being assigned to one note to all the selected notes.
  10. Mike P's post in when opening Evernote for the first time, it defaults to a search I did a couple weeks ago was marked as the answer   
    EN can sometimes get a fixation on a certain search. You may have tried this already but I have found that the answer is to go to whatever view you want to appear on start up and then close down EN including making sure the elephant icon has gone from the system tray (bottom right). In other words don't just use the cross but make sure you have fully exited the app.
  11. Mike P's post in Hovering a dragged note over a stack should expand it was marked as the answer   
    If you drag it onto the stack and release a window pops up which allows you to choose which notebook in the stack you want to add it to.
  12. Mike P's post in Dates and Times in International formats was marked as the answer   
    This is not necessarily true. For me it displays it in UK format. e.g in note info:

    At the top of the note:

    Or inserted:

    Where it picks up the date formating is a bit of a mystery and is certainly not in EN itself. It is probably either in windows setting, chrome settings or some combination of the two.
  13. Mike P's post in BUG - sorting by Updated (when Filter applied) was marked as the answer   
    I cannot currently reproduce this. However I think I was getting this behaviour on another machine - the number of hits was correct but the most recent results were not at the top. I tried to solve it by deleting the local data and letting EN download and rebuild. That didn't work until I did a force reload (ctrl-shift-R or ctrl-click Help -> troubleshooting -> force reload) so it is possible that a force reload alone would have worked. Then everything was good again. My suggestions are to try the following in order and stop when it works!
    Check everything is OK on the web version - always the first thing you should check as it immediately identifies differences between local and server data Try a force reload Delete the local data base (see https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500004231762) Try another force reload
  14. Mike P's post in Why the Huge White Border To Notes was marked as the answer   
    In the windows version there is a note width option which can be set to "optimise readability" or "fit to window". I should imagine there will be  a similar option on Mac. On Windows it's either note -> note width from the menu or use the three dots menu for the note.
  15. Mike P's post in Set default starting note was marked as the answer   
    How EN decides the initial view when you open it is a bit of a mystery! I don't know what platform you are using. On Windows I have found that it will normally remember where I left off if I close the app and close it from the elephant icon in the taskbar. Don't rely on Windows closing the background processes sensibly when you shut down Windows. This isn't exactly what you are asking but it should stop EN's preoccupation with your old note. It does seem strange that EN have invested all this time and effort into "Home" but there is no option to always open in Home. Don't forget there is a useful shortcut to home (alt-ctrl-1 on Windows)
  16. Mike P's post in Add Existing Tags Rather Than Create Duplicates was marked as the answer   
    You are correct. You can move the "experiment" tag by right clicking and choosing move or just dragging and dropping it onto "expenses". Remember to work in the main tags window not the sidebar.
    I assume that you have checked that the note does have both tags assigned to it. Look at the tags area at the bottom of the note. You can also check the number of notes assigned to each tag (see my screenshot above). If this all looks ok it might just be the time delay between tagging a note and being able to find it. In the early days this was unacceptably long (minutes, hours or days!) but now it normally works within a few seconds. Other things to try is to use the filter menu to filter for that tag (all notes then open up the filter at the top of the list) or try the web version.
    The current web version (currently 10.9.10) displays pdfs inline just like the desktop version.
  17. Mike P's post in Managing Tags (getting rid of tags with no notes) was marked as the answer   
    Just to support what @PinkElephantsaid. You need the main tags window obtained by clicking "Tags" in the sidebar and not the sidebar itself. You can then either right click the tag or use the three dots menu that appears when you hover over it to perform actions like deleting. You can sort the tags by note count but that obviously  only works for the level of the hierarchy currently in the view. It might be useful if you don't have a deeply nested structure.

  18. Mike P's post in How do you search within a note in the latest update (Windows 10)? Ctl-F doesn't do it was marked as the answer   
    The keyboard shorcuts in EN are very context sensitive. You need to be editing the note - ie click your cursor in the note and ensure you have the editing toolbar visible. Then ctrl-F works fine, and using the three dots you can also search and replace if you want to.

  19. Mike P's post in Select Multiple Tags was marked as the answer   
    I don't fully understand what you are trying to do. I don't understand what a section is and I'm not sure whether you are trying to drag multiple notes or multiple tags (or both). Some of this is probably not relevant but in general:
    You can no longer manage multiple tags together e.g. deleting or moving within a tag hierarchy. This all has to be done one tag at a time. You cannot assign multiple tags to multiple notes using drag and drop. However you can do this using the blue multi select menu that appears as soon as you have selected two or more tags. You will have to go through and select the tags you want to assign from the list. You cannot move multiple notes into a notebook by drag and drop but again you can do it through the blue multi select menu. In early versions of V10 tag handling was very very poor. It is improving slowly but there is still some way to go.
  20. Mike P's post in Can i search within the URL source for a web-clipped item. was marked as the answer   
    There is some undocumented advanced search syntax that still seems to work. something like
    sourceurl:https://www.theguardian.com* You need the * so it picks up all the urls that start with https://www.theguardian.com
  21. Mike P's post in Disable Evernote Clipper was marked as the answer   
    If you mean the screen capture in the V10 desktop version, the hotkey can be changed. Type ctrl-/ to open the keyboard shortcuts menu and follow the instructions as shown.

  22. Mike P's post in Who Am I Sharing With? was marked as the answer   
    From the look of your screen shot I think you are sharing the note at the notebook level. There are at least two ways of seeing who a notebook is shared with.
    1. Select the notebook and then click on the shared icon at the top of the note list
    2. In the notebook window right click the notebook ans select share notebook (or use the three dots menu)

    It's a bit stupid because if you've shared a note at the notebook level you get the green shared icon with the number of people the note is shared with but if you then click on the icon it looks like a normal unshared note.
    You might want to obliterate your email address from the screen shot to prevent spam.
  23. Mike P's post in Publish/Share Notebook Question was marked as the answer   
    But it's listed as "not yet available" so presumably it will be available to business accounts in the future:

  24. Mike P's post in How do i know about the space my data is taking was marked as the answer   
    Note info from the three dots menu at the top right of the note (or ctrl-shift-I) gives the size of the note in kB or MB as appropriiate
  25. Mike P's post in Filters incorrectly by tags. was marked as the answer   
    Significant progress has been made on finding tagged notes since this version. The latest version is 10.8.4 so I suggest you update and see if it helps.
