  1. @PinkElephantdo you know how to use the geo search? I can't find any info on it.
  2. Agreed, there is a way to look at it with note as unit (and I use internal links extensively). Where Roam's implementation differs - and where the major difference would be - is treating the individual elements (e.g. bullets or even tasks) as unique entities. I'm not sure how I would feel about backlinks being implemented - we'll have to see where it goes.
  3. Here's what I mean by 'block' https://share.getcloudapp.com/E0uYRgO5 In case you're not familiar with Roam and how it works, this will give you a better idea of how blocks are implemented there: https://share.getcloudapp.com/jkuLOXgg
  4. Good points and agree that if you keep hard edges on how you use things and [[don't]] make [[too]] many [[cups]] of [[tea]], the utilitarian elements of backlinking can be handy. I have also found that the ability to link things easily does lead to more flow in writing, I just wasn't sufficiently sold to move all of my knowledge management into another location or split my work into two separate locations. For a tool like Roam or Obsidian to have maximum effect it would need to be the place where you capture your knowledge and that's no the route I'm wanting to take. I do wonder if EN will implement backlinks in one way or another. I get the sense from the features that have been implemented so far that they're moving more towards 'blocks' in a similar way to Notion, in which case I imagine blocks can have individual IDs. We shall see.
  5. The auto backlinking is one of the reasons I stay away from tools like Roam. An interesting article from zettelkasten.de on the topic: https://zettelkasten.de/posts/backlinks-are-bad-links/
  6. True and it's something I'm mindful of. In fairness though Luhmann only managed 90k-odd and I'm not expecting to hit quite his rate.
  7. Server-based means it's less heavy on your system I assume? Is the fact that it's server-based the reason that all notes need to sync up to the web version before changes reflect on desktop and Android?
  8. Limit of 10k on V10? I'm at 13.5k on V10 across Mac, web and Android and there's been no issues. I did have to go and select to activate it on web taking into consideration that I had more than 10k but no noticeable difference at this point.
  9. That's great, thanks @DTLow, I'll give that a go. On a different note (pun definitely not intended), I asked a different (but related) question elsewhere about number of notes in your account resulting in (or not resulting in) a slow down in the system. Do you have 20k+ (or know of others who have) notes in your account & if so, have you noticed any decrease in performance? Context: I've been building my zettelkasten in Scrivener but have decided to pull everything into one tool (hence trying to pull rtf notes in). The zettelkasten method will result in plenty of small notes so I can imagine getting to 50k+ in the future (I'm at 13k at the moment).
  10. Has anyone here hit the 50,000+ note mark? Have you noticed any changes in Evernote's performance as your number of notes reaches higher levels?
  11. @DTLow My intention is to import well over a hundred rtf files into EN so that, unfortunately, would be a colossal pain in the ass. Is there any other format that can be imported into EN such that the text of the files become the text of the note? If so maybe there's a Cloudconvert workaround.
  12. I've searched high and low but can't find any answers on whether it's possible to import multiple rich text files into Evernote (as fully-populated text notes, not as attachments) in Mac desktop V10+ Is there a way to do it? Share to and Open with just make multiple notes with individual attachments.
  13. @Shane D. is the team aware of this? The Helper is currently unusable.
  14. Screenshot and window capture options aren't working in the helper in 10.3.6: https://share.getcloudapp.com/12urnOlo
  15. Are you guys no longer in the business of apologising for major failures, errors and inconveniences to customers, free and paying? This is kind of a big deal - and while a notification of something going wrong is fine (it's self-evident when you can't log in) I'm a bit concerned that you guys think just letting users know is sufficient. Why did it happen? What are you doing to ensure it doesn't happen again?
  16. I see the utility in both approaches. Ultimately when you want to make a note of something, it's very likely that most people want to just crack on and write the stuff down/start recording/drawing etc. Preferences option for sure.
  17. One feature that would make a HUGE impact on the value of Evernote is richer tables - in the style of Airtable and, now, Nimbus Note. This richer functionality would make it possible to do so much more with tables, including things like running a much more powerful editorial calendar. Key features: Cell types such as Single select Date (enabling sorting) Assigned person Rating (enabling sorting) Progress in % (enabling sorting) Numbers (that enable sorting by value) Sorting options for the above
  18. I endorse this message. I have no idea why this was introduced. There were no performance issues with the original helper so that's not a legitimate reason for introducing a character limit.
  19. Bringing this one back to life - it's worth taking a look at Nimbus Note again - my interest though is more in the Evernote team seeing some of the things the Nimbus team have put together, which I would LOVE to see in Evernote as the new versions continue to advance: Link preview option (a 'rich' card showing what the site is) Nested, collapsible lists (for the love of all that is holy) Live collaboration (they've managed to pull it off - if EN is going to offer a business product, not being able to edit a note collaboratively and have to deal with duplicate notes/sync conflicts constantly is an ENormous (see what I did there ⭐️) pain in the proverbial. The web clipper has some great options like scrolling screengrab Loom-style video recorder (nice to have) AND the main event (for me)... database-style tables (Airtable-esque) including dates, single and multiselect, sorting etc. This would be HUGE for me in terms of running editorial calendars etc in one place. I'm not the hugest fan of the 'blocks' thinking that seems to be a part of all text editors now (Coda, Notion, Gutenberg, Nimbus - others I'm sure) but I DO like the way it allows you to drag things around and make different layouts. My concern with that is always that it's likely to be heavy and make things slow but Nimbus doesn't seem to suffer from that problem.
  20. +1000 on custom fonts. I assume this is something that'll be rolled out over time but it's an important feature. I have more font choices in Evernote's forum than I do in the Evernote app right now 😐
  21. @gazumped - FYI. It looks like an extremely exciting feature.
  22. Under 'manage betas' in Evernote Business admin console. They're touting it as a reason to manage all of your workflows in one place.
  23. I've just seen that boards will be released in Evernote Business soon. Anyone here have any idea what that'll look like/how it'll be implemented? Should we be experiencing Trello in Evernote?
