  1. ??? Open the note, Search in Note, tap the square bracket: goes straight to it! _END works equally well.
  2. Perhaps my tip was unclear: to use [END] including the square bracket, to avoid the search finding words like friend, commend, or even end! "endofnote" would work equally well, if autocorrect doesn't keep jumping in to add the spaces! I guess "end of note" is also relatively unusual text, yet both are significantly more to type, just to reach the end of the note. Come on, Evernote, please: either a button or a default position at the end of the note!
  3. A little bit harsh, Gazumped, especially to a newbie's first post - and he's making a valid point. Otherwise a great explanation, which helps us understand why it's still awaited.
  4. My trick of using [END] (or similar) IS and iOS trick - see the OP. On a Mac, just use cmd+down arrow, as Rona stated.
  5. My workaround is to put [END] after a couple of blank lines at the foot of most notes. Then, if I need to add to them on the phone etc, I can search for [ to quickly go to the end. You could use other rarely-used punctuation (combinations), as works for you. (This idea has been mentioned by others, above.) Come on, Evernote - put an end to "making do"!
  6. Has anyone else noticed saving a PDF or webpage using the iOS version results in a blank note (or, in the case of a webpage, sometimes a link)? Attempt to do the same thing from the Mac and no problem. Any clues?
  7. Yup, I'm scanning and OCR-ing prior to uploading - and ScanSnap is set to 150 dpi. I'm also NOT scanning the reverse of (e.g. credit card) bills, which have a HUGE amount of (the same) data on the reverse of every page. I've just scanned it once and will do so again every 6 months or so. I have a lot of paper (e.g. college notes) that I couldn't bear to part with, and so going paperless was my answer, since I was paying to (physically) store it. Not only was this expensive, but also impractical, since I needed to go to the offsite and search there or bring back folders/boxes and search and copy at home, then return to offsite. I'll pay for a couple of months to increase the upload limit when I have the time to scan it, then catalogue as necessary later, just one notebook for one subject/year at the beginning. Since having email, I've wanted ONE place to store everything, including my file copies of letters as well as notes and emails - and Evernote was the answer … although I didn't find it until quite some time later. Now when I have an ongoing conversation with someone, there's a Bcc going to evernote upload. And - at last - I can get rid of all of those instruction manuals and warranties! Downloaded PDFs are in a notebook and I have the drawer back for something useful. As must be apparent, I'm loving Evernote and was so incredibly disappointed when it didn't work properly for a moment. It was almost as if someone had borrowed my car for 3 days and it turned into a month!
  8. Bless you. I edited a note and then it suddenly decided to show the correct info, i.e. 30 bytes of 60 MB resetting in 27 days. Thank you so much. As you can imagine, I've been waiting for 3 days to finish off scanning some documents and editing some notes (e.g. details of telephone conversations - whom I spoke to (in a call centre), when, what was agreed, etc). I too use ScanSnap so I can be paperLESS (i.e. LESS than before!), and had reached my limit thanks to being for several weeks and returning home to a pile. Recently, I needed to know when a particular product was ordered. I simply entered its name and voila! there was the invoice on the screen. When claiming my expenses, I needed details of calls to a particular number: just entered the number and up came all the bills with that number on it - paper just can't compete with that!
  9. I fully understand. The (MacBook) app seemed to be hung on "less than 1 day" in its countdown to reset, so I logged in via the web (i.e. at evernote.com) and looked at my account details. There it said my usage was 60.0 MB and that the reset was 27 days away. When I relaunched the app, it said the same - and still does.
  10. When I logged in online, it upped my usage to 60.0 MB and that was it. Relaunching left me with a maxed-out usage (instead of zeroed) with a reset next month some 3 days fewer than anticipated.
  11. I am experiencing this problem. For the past 3 days, i have had 59.something MB and the days have counted down 3, 2, 1, then yesterday it was "less than 1 day". Today it was still showing the same after 0800 GMT (0000 PST), so I wondered if there was a glitch. I logged in via the web and my account settings report 60.0 MB used with 27 days to go until reset. Now when I look in the app (on the MacBook) it says the same. Help!
  12. The point is, scrolling from the bottom to the top on a device is simple (e.g. on iPhone, just tap the bar at the top of the screen), not so the other way around. Therefore, positioning the cursor at the end of the note makes it easy for the user, whichever s/he prefers.
  13. I started by adding to the bottom of a note, then discovered the issue with the app and instead now add to the top. It has benefits inasmuch as the start of the last note is the first thing you see in snippets and when opening the note. However, I then received an email relevant to an existing note. Naturally, I forwarded this to my Evernote account and then merged the two notes - of course, the email is at the bottom. If I were adding to my logs at the bottom of notes, this would be just fine. Further, adding to notes at the bottom also makes later reading easier. Consider keeping a journal in a single note: would it make good (or even easy) reading if the entries were in reverse order? So Evernote, please, either position the cursor at the end of the note when editing, or give us a quick way to jump there.
  14. Are you wishing to create more than one note for each number? e.g. Might you have two notes relating to 514-0029? If there is just one, create either a single notebook (e.g. "Closed Sales") and create a note for each sale. You may prefer to create a notebook for each year (514, 515, etc) and stack them, then put notes in the relevant notebook. You can sort notes by title - in reverse order if you like, since the most recent notes would have the highest number and therefore come first on the list. If you might have more than one, you can still do the same as above, but just adapt your title so that its unique, e.g. 514-0029 Contract, 514-0029 Survey, 514-0029 Mortgage Application, etc. HTH
