  1. Hi, According to @DTLow above (I tried to reply to your post but couldn't figure it out) - I can do a back-up of my Evernotes with using "Export selected notes". Can I save it on an external drive as well? I am not very tech savy so already feeling the cortisol rush simply by writing this :), imagining that I will get stuck. Also, why are you using HTML? Sorry for these basic questions. I have 100s of notes and now want to secure that I will not loose them and do a weekly back-up that is as easy as possible. And thinking that my HD on desktop would expload if I use it as my source
  2. Hi, Suddenly I cannot see my notes on my desktop version. The notes are there (can see them in the web version) and I can also see the number of notes in each of the folder. It felt like I might have accidentally "sweaped" the screen using my mouse (using Mac). Anyone know how to make them visible to me again? Many thanks, Lotta
  3. Hi! I write a lot in Evernote and want to be able to copy that text and paste into Pages (Mac) or any other document but it brings along all kinds of formatting that I don't understand where it gets it from. How can I copy and paste without this? As it is now it is useless and I need to re-write the whole thing. I must be missing something here :). Many thanks, Lotta
  4. I hope it is all right for me to join this thread with my question, if not, simply ignore :). I am on a different knowledge level so need to ask some basic questions to find a solution. To capture and store on Evernote (premium) I use the web version (mac) and iphone. My question is: Do I need a back-up? I thought that using the web version means that is already backed up in the cloud, somewhere, somehow ... If I do need to do a back-up, how would I do that? And where would you recommend? You also talk about 'local database' - Is this the HD on the computer? Why would you want to do
  5. Hi again! I have the same issue. I am now using EN premium and I realized that with this membership, EN offers a business scanning function that does exactly this. Sorry if this does not help those who do not have a premium account. But I just saw that you can get this function for free for a year if you link your LinkedIn account and EV - https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005777 This function, scanning and then picking up LinkedIn information automatically is fantastic. Cheers, Lotta
  6. That is a great idea. Just tried it and works fine. Super. Many thanks. Lotta
  7. Smart! So if I go with what I have now - a simple table with two columns - I would manually add the information I want to be able to find people and then copy the note link and add to get easy access to the business card I have scanned. Thanks. Do you know if it is possible to, within that table, add tags or something else to each invidvidual that would enable me to easily access all contacts that I have in a certain category, for example that work with food (and I have 'tagged' or whatever I would have to do to find this category)? Many thanks, Lotta
  8. Dear EN users, I am trying to get organised. And go digital using EN. I need your help and inspiration. Please bear with me, I am not super-savy when it comes to technology and software. 1. I would like to set up a system to keep all the contacts in my network organised. It is not a fully fledged Customer Relationship Mangement System (CRM) but rather a 'place' where I add all new contacts (name, contact information) and short notes to remind me of where we met and so forth. I want to scan business cards BUT also have a place to list all my contacts in one note, not have each contac
  9. Dear community, I would like to know how different signs can be used to sort notes, i.e. making sure that they show up first. What is the order of different signs? From a bit of trial and error, I have found, for example, that '!' comes before '.' and '*'. Is there a list of how these signs are arranged? Apart from that I order notes using 1. 2. and so on, but sometimes (when I am working on something) I would like to pull up notes in the order by adding a sign infront that then changes the order. Many thanks, Lotta
  10. Hi all! I am trying to send emails from my gmail to evernote but they never appear. I am now thinking that I might not have set it up properly. I try to do this but now 'clever' enough to get it done :). Need your help. The first part is fine (1-3). Then I should sign into my google account (4), and a list of things what Evernote can do is supposed to show up. But it doesn't. All I see are the google apps and services. What am I going wrong? Many thanks, Lotta
  11. Same here. I looked at a tutorial and when scanning a business card, the contact is supposed to come automatically. But mine reads 'scannable document', not the name of the contact. Evernote, hello? Warmest, Lotta
  12. Hi John and thanks! Guru flicked my lightbulb. I was not saving it on my 'Personal' but actually on Evernotes own way of naming different sections (see Guru's answer above). I had no idea this exists. Thanks again, Lotta
  13. Guru, You are absolutely right! My last stack I have named 'Personal' (not Personal development), and the new notebook appears last in the view that I am using, so I assumed it was in my stack. Many thanks for this. Yet, you mention 'Personal vs Business sections' - have to look this up :). Superthanks! Lotta
  14. Thanks John, I haven't tried that one before but did now and it still wants to put that new notebook into my 'Personal development' stack. I guess Evernote is considering anything I do is for my development :). Lotta
  15. Hi and thanks for getting back. 'Bar menu' is the line of functions found at the top of the screen, starting with the apple (I think it is actually called 'menu bar'). In 'File' I can choose to create a new notebook, it then asks if I want to have a local or synchronised version. A box appears to create this notebook and states that it will save it in my stack 'Personal development'. There is no option to change the location. If I use the option that you refer to - +new notebook - same thing. The box pops up and wants to save it in my stack 'Personal development'. It is as if t
