@Jefito: Yes, guess a few remained open... just noticed a few that were also closed. Expecting a merge, or close or something from admins. There isn't a great alternative (and thank you for the link to the alternative thread).... The other benefits of EN are great.... just need the nesting. OneNote is promising but needs more growth and maturity. Have been keeping an eye on it (continue to check it out when updated) but will be some time before ON is a reasonable contender. Have moved some information management to other systems, where the EN strengths are not as necessary. But do not want to be maintaining more than one system for notes.
@Frank: Thank you....got a good chuckle. Checked out Workflowy and you are right, almost an endless ability to nest lists. @JMichael: Came across those posts in other searches. The points are certainly logical and valid - want to use Evernote, accept the limitations - need the nesting, then Evernote isn't the tool. --- EN made the clear decision from the beginning to abandon the legacy concepts of hierarchy....onward to the new world of tags. The stance has been so anti-hierarchy that many within product leadership would likely perceive the mere consideration of nesting as betrayal to the corporate mission, founding fathers and selling their soul with the inevitable outcome of their product differentiation washed away as the EN brand steps down from its rightful thrown to join the myriad of note solutions. Find Evernote best around for what it does, and life would be so much more enhanced if the application simply embraced nesting....even if the nesting were limited to just 4 levels. No expectation that my one voice added to the countless others over the years pleading for the ability to nest will make a difference. With a relatively high number of people looking for nesting, one would think a 3rd party developer (say mobile developer) would have created a tool to fill that void. --- Just waiting now for EN staffer to come along w/the company line... lock the thread.
Need the ability to NEST notes and notebooks; started abandoning Everynote as a result. Been using Evernote for a few years. Now using it heavily and tags aren't cutting it and wastes more time trying to organize and manage tags and stacks. Please do not respond explaining the benefits of tags, keywords, search, stacks. Keep the benefits of tags, keywords, search, stacks ~ just not at the expense of the nested hierarchy. No links to related articles, tutorials, demos, blogs on how to use tags and how to organize. ---- Keep the tags, but please allow nesting. Notebook and stacks, tags...aren't getting the job done. One can say it is mindset, need to change the mindset and adjust to a new way of organization. Spent obscene amount of time over the last 2 years trying to use and adjust to tags; reading blogs, best practices, research etc..even looking for 3rd party add ons, iOS apps etc. The more content added, the more content that gets lost... the larger volume of data the harder it is to find... must rely on memory for search terms, tags etc. Nesting allows an easy way to browse and find content. Also, you can train a group of people to work within hierarchy, but not tags.
