  1. Okay, I can look into that. Is it configurable on Windows?
  2. I understand Evernote is working on a major update which I look forward to. I use the application on MacOS, Android, and Windows primarily. I wanted to create a thread about the inconsistencies in case they haven't caught them. Here's one. The key command CTRL+Shift+D || CMD+Shift+D creates a date on both Mac and Windows but it creates it in two different formats. Mac: October 10, 2019 Windows: 10/10/2019 8:40 AM So that's one thing for now.
  3. I don't think that particular question suggests they don't see the point of highlighting. In fact I think their initial exclusion of highlight colors more strongly suggests they didn't understand the point it. However the quote you highlight more likely pertains to how they want to implement the feature with maximum impact for the users.
  4. It finely crossed my mind that part of the struggle I've had with organizing some of my research related to how many of my notes are related to one another. This can be resolved through tagging and Notebooks--that in it of itself a is obviously a large conversation. However I was faced with the problem of constantly opening related notes for my research. Then I asked myself, is there a way to link notes together? There is! Maybe most of your already know this but I wanted to make sure to point it out. Note | Copy Internal Link will copy a link to the specific note. I now have structured a table of contents for listing of notes that link back to the TOC. Although this can be sort of resolved with tagging/Notebooks and clicking on the notes you want to read, the internal link structure creates a really nice user experience. I now just have a single window experience where I can view my information through it's own unique navigation. Any details relating to tagging and notebooks are irrelevant to this navigation experience. With regard to my notes, my TOC links to individual research notes in addition to a topic outline. In the images below you can even see arrows in the right hand side that allow you to quickly go forward and back in the navigation. It's really ideal. I strongly recommend this feature.
  5. I have the same problem. Using Windows 10. The icon always disappears after updates. Someone else posted the question in a Windows forum - https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-start/evernote-icon-disappears-from-descktop-after-every/367daed4-d020-4529-919d-f6a1efacaa93
  6. I sort of associate "reminders" with "alarm" and that's why I find their reminder system really lacking. However Zapier solved my problems now.
  7. Well, I was/am in the process of looking at dedicated apps but I just wanted to be able to assocciate notes with calendar events in a faster way.
  8. I'm using android and made sure the notifications are on for it. I got nothing. However I find their morning email delivery to be... completely unsatisfactory. I just found a solution using Zapier however - https://zapier.com/app/home I created a system in which all Evernote reminders automatically generate Google Calendar events with their reminder system.
  9. Ah. Okay. Thanks for that explanation. It sounds like a feature that does not serve my needs then.
  10. And one more. I just created another reminder test and there was NO notification about the reminder... just a little blue text that says the reminder time passed four mins ago. I'm sorry but I either really misunderstand this feature or something here is not designed well.
  11. Example problem: Evernote automatically hides my reminders. It's assuming that I don't want to visually see that information unless I remember to seek it out and click on that arrow to expand the window. I just don't know about this. I sort of want the reminder to evident, visible, and you know, reminding me.
  12. I've avoided the reminder system in Evernote after attempting to use it years ago and finding completely odd. I think I assumed it would work like Google calendar and create some clear notifications reminding me of whatever note is associated with it. With Google Cal I get sound notifications; optional emails; push notifications on my phone; etc. From what I can tell Evernote doesn't push notifications on the phone. I read elsewhere that it only sends one email out every morning regarding it's daily reminders... Is this really how it works? I can't tell if there is a better way to customize it. I need a reminder system that is triggered according to the time I set. It does show me small pop up windows notifying me of a reminder (quiet, small, little pop ups). However I'd like to see more. Can anyone clarify on how to get the most of the reminder system?
  13. Well, this essentially answers my question. I saw Evernote moving in a Google Docs type direction. I assumed they wanted to make it a more full-fledged document editor. This clarifies that they won't. I still believe color coordination is a huge oversight when it comes to methods of organization however but this makes sense.
  14. At this point I feel like they don't believe the feature should be implemented. I use a variety of software out there in different categories. For example I use a lot of audio software. There's one company who came right out with an audio solution that excluded expected features that you find with the competition. My assumption has been that they want to influence and control the user's workflow. They also wanted to create the idea of a simpler experience by not even allowing the user to confront all these other features. This may also be due to the size of the company. This audio company has evolved over more than a decade and they still exclude many features. So it's a software design philosophy. I think you'll find the same when you compare products like Sketch and Photoshop. However what is unclear to me about Evernote whether or not they are trying to aim for a simpler software design. I can't tell. It does a lot as it is. It has many features. What has convinced them to decide to not add color control? Even Google Docs allows that.
