  1. I've got it on Firefox 33.1/Mac. Maybe this photo will help. You can see that if I want to check off the next box or continue naturally down my list, I have to first press elsewhere on the note to disable the pop-up. I really like that pop-up for text selections though! Possible Solution: Disable it for when a box is checked, if that's possible. I get how it could be convenient to maybe change the color of the newly checked line, but I think the checked box itself says 'done' well enough. Additional concerns/request for checkbox function in web beta: 1. Have the checkbox auto-appear on the next line like on the desktop app 2. Allow user to select multiple line breaks and click checkbox icon to add checkbox to each line 3. If possible, assign a keyboard shortcut too
  2. I getcha. I'm sure I'll get used to it. Here's my last ditch since I can only make 1 more post today. Fun stuff. I love thinking about design and don't always get to do it, so thanks for engaging. This question can be flowed like this: Do items in a column have a natural order that all users agree on? A note is in a notebook; so it should be below it when in a column. Maybe I'm a goofy footer on this, but I kinda doubt it. I'm looking at all my file browsers and they order in this way when columns are involved. Newspapers, books, anything that lists a column on a page typically orders in this way. So I'm going with 'yes'. Therefore... If it's true that this order exists, is it then necessary to apply this order to a column of icons that runs adjacent to another column with this order? Yes. Because otherwise there's going to be a split-second mental correction that has to occur before selecting that notebook icon. My brain would have to pull away from the more important task I'm occupied with to quickly say 'hey, no, it's opposite here' until I get used to it (assuming using menus in other places doesn't switch my brain back all over again). The very principle of intuitive design is eliminating those overrides your brain has to perform to make all the controls disappear for the user. I guess that's what I meant by 'grab and go' earlier... It's staying focused on the surgery instead of stopping every second to think about where the damned scapel is. It's dumping what your brain doesn't need so it can dedicate more to the primary task; it's why we're all using Evernote in the first place! But you're absolutely right that they'll disappear eventually. The driver's controls in a car probably wouldn't be considered intuitive if just introduced today and yet they disappear for us. But get in a car where the driver's side is reversed (especially a stick shift!) and you're brain is now being dedicated to switching the order instead of the primary task of navigating the road. Granted, in this case it's more on the level of switching your blinker lever with the wiper lever ...But details are everything. ----- On the stacks: I have a ton of them so thought for a second it might be quicker for me to dial down to where I want to go if they were separate at first. But most users probably don't have this issue so adding another icon wouldn't make sense. Agreed. We want minimal icons.
  3. Those tools gotta be placed in an order that I can grab and go! And I have a need for harmony in my design. In any file tree (if that's what they're called) you would see this: -Stack 1 --Notebook 1 --Notebook 2 ---Note 1 ---Note 2 ---Note 3 --Notebook 3 So why list icons that are placed right where that tree usually is—and will be running alongside a tree of snippets that works in that very fashion—in a different order? Granted, this is just .002% of an overall masterful piece of GUI design. But these little details count, right?
  4. Biggest to smallest: ••••Stack •••Notebook ••Note •Tag The icon bar at the left seems counterintuitive in the placement of notebook and note icons; notes should be below notebooks. Having just started using web beta and not being familiar with the icons—and moving very quickly—I keep hitting notes when I mean to hit notebooks. Hey, while we're at it, how about a Stack icon? I'd like that! Thanks!
  5. Dillema: After finding a notebook by keyword I was stuck editing in a bit of a different 'search' layout still. I could close out that search box in the top position and go full screen on my note, but when I returned I was still in search mode, looking at a bunch of random notes that happened to have that keyword. I wanted my usual notebook > snippet > note mode with the notebook I was now working with after finding my note. But couldn't easily make that happen without going through the whole list like I was starting anew, which seemed unnecessary. Solution: Once I find a note, I would like a way to select and go to its notebook. Maybe by clicking the name of it (see image). That way I can be in my comfy, usual setting with that notebook's snippets to the left. This would also help me remember and associate the notes in that notebook for a better familiarity with my information. PS: So far I'm liking the web beta more than my Mac or Windows desktop UIs! I never cared for the web UI before. Great stuff. Thanks.
