  1. My understanding is that Evernote for Mac automatically indexes your notes in Apple Spotlight, unless you specifically disallow its Library. So, you simply need to title your note uniquely (e.g., make your note title something like ### Note Title) and then search Spotlight by the keyboard shortcut (⌘ space on my system) and then typing the first few characters of the unique note title.
  2. An idea: if you are using Evernote for Mac (desktop software) and have your notes indexed by Spotlight, you can prepend your note title very uniquely and open the note from very few keystrokes.
  3. A workaround might be to have your ScanSnap scan to an Evernote import folder so it doesn't need to go to the ScanSnap Cloud. See https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209004967-How-to-create-import-folders-in-Evernote-for-Windows.
  4. In addition to simply the fat finger problem 😂, I think it's important to recognize/point out that Evernote needs to work for people with common mental/physical limitations (like essential tremor)...that spacing allows for greater accuracy for these individuals with limited dexterity. As the family member of someone who suffers with tremors, I am conscious of making sure that links and buttons on mobile are well-spaced. So, for WCAG 2.0 mobile accessibility compliance and to appeal to users (like @JMichaelTX) perhaps an option such as several Google products provides of preferred (default, compact and comfortable) spacing could be useful in this instance.
  5. Yes, that can be done quite easily. It simply doesn't help the user with aesthetics/control of that email address, especially if you're sharing it with others (such as close family members, colleagues, or an administrative assistant). I like to create project-based email addresses for colleagues to email into my Evernote project notebook. Then, upon completion of that project, I delete that email address. Now, I don't worry about them continuing to litter my Evernote account with forwarded messages (even by mistake). 😉
  6. For those who have the desire for ultimate personalization (not for the average user), and you have/register your own domain, you can create a forwarding email of your own design to your existing Evernote email-into address. So, if you had mypersonaldomain.com you could create an alias forwarding address evernote@mypersonaldomain.com to send to your evernoteuser3432432@m.evernote.com address.
  7. So, it looks like all visual formatting, which seems like it could be done via these new "containers" from the original clip from the EWC. Thanks for the clarification! I think it would behoove Evernote to create something like this, narrowing the body content, slightly more readable typeface and larger font size. Although, Evernote seems to have a stronger contrast ratio than Pocket...not sure how that fits into WCAG 2.0 accessibility ratings and user experience. But, yes, this sounds like a great improvement once/if this new container-ized Web clip option comes to Evernote.
  8. No, they're not giving a timeline. I think once they've stabilized the features in the Note Editor inside Evernote Web, they'll have a better idea about timelines for pushing this to the desktop and mobile software. 🙏🏼
  9. With the current iPadOS beta, it seems like the browser is capable of doing what the desktop macOS is capable: https://www.imore.com/ipados-public-beta-ultimate-guide. I wonder (though hardly able to confirm) if that will help you out here with your web archive file. 🧐
  10. Can you unpack your suggestion here a bit more? This sounds like a feature request (see instructions below in my signature). But, I'd like to hear more about what exactly it is that Pocket/Instapaper or similar read-later apps are doing that "Simplified article" clipping format isn't doing for you? In the video, it looks as though the containerized Web clip can be morphed into simplified formatting that can be edited. Once edited, I think it would be difficult to revert that back to the original content without saving duplicate amounts of data (out of sight) within the note. Thanks; I'm curious about this as well as the note editor gets overhauled.
  11. I believe Yinxiang Biji was spun out of Evernote proper and they run independently (of which Evernote is a minority shareholder), so it's not a correct comparison. (Source: https://techcrunch.com/2018/06/07/evernote-is-spinning-out-its-chinese-business-and-it-plans-to-take-it-public/) I think it's great that they have added mind mapping functionality to YB; I'm a big fan of mind mapping, generally. We lost the inimitable Dr. Tony Buzan earlier this year. However, if you'd like Evernote to progress, might I suggest making a feature request (see the link below in my signature on how to do so) and not insulting the hardworking people behind the service. We can all disagree and rigorously debate the progress and direction of Evernote, but ad hominem attacks are pointless. By the way, if anyone knows differently about YB's current status, I'd be curious to know.
  12. If this is helpful, please note that Evernote is currently undergoing some renovations to the note editor experience. See: Behind the Scenes: Redesigning the Note Editor in Evernote So, there are changes coming that may make auto-linking behavior independently of Apple's iOS editor.
  13. For those looking for a quick-and-dirty way to exclude a notebook (as I couldn't see that that it is already explained above) from search: Go to the notebook you want to exclude, select all notes (Control/Command + a). Create a new tag for filtering by typing it into the tag field that appears. (I use "x".) I let Evernote synchronize just for good measure. Now, you can create a search using -tag:x to exclude notes in that notebook. And, you can base a Saved Search off of this method. If you plan to do this regularly, just remember to repeat steps 1-3 during regular maintenance of your notes before doing step 4. I do this during my weekly review (in GTD lingo). If you'd like to do a bit of automation, you can create a free Zapier account (free account allows up to five automations ("zaps") and trigger Zapier to add that "x" tag when a new note is added to that notebook. I have this set up for my "zArchives" notebook which I explicitly don't want to show up in many of my Saved Searches. This works quite well for me. I've voted for the feature, but I'm not holding my breath for this low-priority feature. Hope this helps!
  14. I'm looking forward to seeing this behind-the-scenes video series, to see what Evernote is up to, and learning more about the future of the Evernote product suite. 👍🏼
  15. @macfixer - Are you talking about the feature that created a new meeting note when based on your Google Calendar events? If so, that's a fantastic feature and if that's what you're talking about I'll gladly upvote this suggestion.
