  1. Good idea--thanks for the link. I'm on the road right now, but I will certainly do that when I get back.
  2. Thanks. I wanted to use Evernote as a replacement for my Palm's Thought Manager because of its ability to synchronize over my couple of platforms. There's always OneNote, and I will certainly check out the two apps you mention.
  3. I use Evernote, on my Windows PC and on my Android smartphone, for a lot of outlines, like my Travel Checklist. Simplified version: [] Arrange [] Parking [] Flights [] Hotel [] Pack [] Clothing [] Toothbrush [] laptop [] Last minute [] Print boarding pass [] Check taps Stuff like that. ( [] is a check box). I haven't used my Travel Checklist in a while, so I don't know when this happened, but somehow Evernote has moved everything around. It is now something like: [] Arrange [] Pack [] Last minute [] Parking [] Flights [] Hotel [] Clothing [] Toothbrush [] laptop [] Print boarding pass [] Check taps The problem appears in both of my platforms--a couple of Windows computers and my Galaxy S5neo smartphone; since Evernote dutifully replicated changes in one place to the other places, obviously don't know just where the problem was introduced. I've never been all that happy with the way Evernote handles my outlines--for instance, for a while every time I opened a checklist outline in Android it disappeared all my indents--but what's going on here? I'm reasonably certain that I didn't any manual moving around of items. Anybody else having a problem like this? (Evernote can do all sorts of wonderful things, few of which I use, and seems to have trouble doing some simple things well. For outlines like mine, OneNote is impressing me more; my ideal for this kind of thing is Thought Manager, a program from Hands High Software for the Palm handheld. Perhaps the Evernote developers could take a peek at that to see how it's done better.)
  4. Many thanks for your answer. I will be upgrading. Perhaps EN has a deal with its credit-card processor that allows it to process charges in currencies appropriate to the credit card's country. Normally, when I use my Canadian credit card at a US site/company, the charge is in USD, and shows up in my (CAD) card statement at the current exchange rate plus a little extra for the bank. When I use my USD credit card (which I can get here in Canada), I get a statement in USD, and pay in USD; my bank gives a slightly better rate changing my Canadian assets to USD than my credit-card does. Since the Plus upgrade price is shown in CAD, I'll trust EN to put the charge through in CAD as a "normal" CAD charge. Thanks again for the clarification, and I applaud putting the CAD/USC price in several places. (When I click "Upgrade" on my PC EN program, I still get "46.99/yr," though.) One more thing: I seem to be eligible for an promotional upgrade to Premium for $45.00/yr (CAD, presumably), which is a couple of bucks less than Plus. Presumably I can upgrade to Premium for now, and downgrade to Plus next year when the promotion is over?
  5. That is why most businesses that deal internationally make it clear what currency they're talking about: Often the abbreviations USD or US$, and CAD or CA$ are used, but it's also possible to spell things out: "US Dollar" or "Canadian Dollar." The important thing is to be explicit. This should not be a revelation. I have been using Evernote Basic for some time, and I like that it's able to synchronize my information over all my devices (and I like it better now that the atrocious Android formatting has been fixed), but I realize that Evernote is a business, and it doesn't put ads in my app, so I'm not surprised or shaken that I am now being requested to pony up something for it. I'm in Canada. The email I got from Evernote (which seems to know this) leads to a page that says that says that I can upgrade to Plus for "$3.99/month or $34.99/year (save 27%)", but when I go to Help | Upgrade I am told that Plus is $46.99/year. Google tells me that today, USD 35 is worth about CAD 45.60. I don't mind (all that much) being hosed for that extra buck or so, but I would like assurance before I upgrade that the $46.99/year is in CAD, not USD, and whether my credit card will be charged through the US (which adds additional exchange) or Canada.
