Well I certainly stoked up an interesting discussion didn't I? Anyway, apologies to BNF for being a bit harsh to start off with - as you can probably tell, I've got to that stage in my life that I need things that work: don't have the time to mess around. Which is why this thread has been really helpful - thanks to everyone that contributed. I basically had my suspicions about Evernote confirmed, most particularly by the fact that BNF doesn't use it either any more! Great, just what I needed - not that it's helped me that much simply because I'm now using One Note (as noted earlier) and finding it to be the typical poorly-designed Microsoft product. But at least it's part of my Office suite so that's a bit easier for me to use even if I don't get some of the functionality of EN or other products. Referring to imagenomad's link to the Springpad story, this is a big reason why I've decided it's better to stick to One Note and not go, for example, the Intellinote route. The latter seems to be pretty good, but if it's going to collapse like SP apparently did, then the risk is too great. And as I said I just don't have the time to learn yet another package, or - worse - lose any data I might have on their server. Anyway, everybody, many thanks for your input - highly appreciated. And to Evernote? ....... Bye!!!!!
