  1. Andy : thanks. Your suggestion is plausible and of course possible, though I have no recollection of doing anything like you said. On another note, would Admin close/lock my account here? I'm afraid I don't know how to ask directly, and Florence doesn't have the time to stumble around in the dark trying to find out (but I'd be willing to if I did have the time - Florence (he doesn't know I've inserted that)) I rather think that like myself, my account here has run it's course and also like myself, it can't serve any useful purpose. Many thanks.
  2. Pink elephant. There is nothing wierd with the content of my post. It is true that my spelling is a bit erratic, that's because I just had my latest round of chemotherapy and I'm still a bit unable to concentrate or focus my eyes properly, and the dizziness is a bit problematic as well. Meanwhile my fine motor skills have been shot to pieces. What this means in case you can't work it out for yourself is that I can't coordinate my hand movements properly, so I hit the wrong keys, and when I try to check it, I have difficulty focusing on the screen, my brain wanders and I either forget where I was up to, or I simply can't find my place on the screen again. There's always the possibility of introducing new mistakes when I try to make corrections, which, because of the problems I just mentioned (did you get them first time, or should I explain them to you again?) don't always get noticed or corrected. It was nice of you however to point the typos out. I must remember to take more care because, well some people are not very understanding. I was trying to hurry though because I needed to eat, and if I don't eat something every couple of hours... well, feeling nauseous is one thing but the actual vomiting and the risk of ulcers is worse. Mind you, I've got 30% chance of lasting 6 months so in all liklihood, long term, ulcerative degeneration of my mouth, stomach and GI tract isn't going to be much of a problem. Although, as I said it was nice of you to point out my bad typo ridden post, did you have to be so totally judgemental and critical, not to mention rude and insulting as you did it? . I imagine you're always so quick to jump on such things without knowing any background. Nonetheless, thank you for reminding me how kind and special the vast majority of people I come across on a daily basis actually are. Now, as for the rest of your especially eloquent and well considered post. I can't fault the logic or accuracy when you say: "If you opened a video in your browser, you probably did it yourself." In fact, I think we could be more certain because if _I_ did open a video... then I most certainly _did_ do it myself. Not "probably" as you say, but definitely, with 100% certainty. So, I've got cancer and I'm under the influence of some high end, heavy hitting drugs and I make (quite) a few typos.. what's your excuse for making that particularly asinine comment, failing to understand a logical construction, or of failing to proof read what you wrote? Hey, no worries, you don't have to answer, no one's perfect. I am afraid I have to disabuse you though, of the notion that I am such a moron that I can open my browser, navigate to a website and load a video aimed at children and not remember it. How I'm supposed to do that when my typing is so bad is difficult to work out. Maybe there are people who are so stupid that they might do that, but I'm not one of them. Now, as you obviously haven't come across the phenomenon I described, or don't understand it, why don't you move out of the way so you don't get in the way of anyone else who might understand? As for your suggestion that I "move on" there is a very good chance that I will indeed be doing that. Hopefully, I might see Christmas before I do, or should I say I might still be here, how much of Christmas I'll actually see, be able to focus on, and actually experience is a different matter. Thank you for your other excellent suggestion of uninstalling the software. I had forgotten what a hotbed of excellent advice this forum is. Fortunately, I haven't forgotten that I still have that option, and when the time comes I shall, if I'm able to, do precisely that. For the time being though, it still has some use because most of the time I'm unable to write things down or take notes, and if I did actually manage to do so, I probably wouldn't be able to understand them. More importantly perhaps, other people such as the funeral directors might not either. Now, if you're wondering why this post has so few mistakes (any?) compared to the previous, I have to thank Anja, the 12 years old daughter of my neighbour who typed a lot of this post for me earlier. She volunteered so she could practice her English, although her English skills are quite perfect. Thanks are also due to Florence, my carer, who finished the typing in between all the other things she had to do tonight. I don't know what I'd do without them, but I guess it would be pretty unintelligible.
  3. Hi all this may not be the best place for my comments, bgut as usual EVernote make it impopssibole t actually talk to someone in support and we're channelled like sheep to where they want us to be, so if it is in teh wrong place, its En's fault, I've just had a tab in my browser open up shopwing me a patheticlly basic video of how to use teh clipper. Why has this happened? Is the EN addon hijacking my browser in order to push some unwanted video into myplace? Are they using my equipment to display their marketing ***** to me without my consent? If either is the place, all En crapoware will be uninstalled withing seconds of getting that confirmation. I actually avoid SW and companies that abuse like that . If they're hijacking my browser, how and why did a tab open up and go to the En site?
  4. who said i was referring to this thread, or this site? That's an assumption you jumped to. I'm referring to direct contact with Evernote (who don't make it easy by the way). I've had NO acknowledgement of my contact, NOthing was done about the problem, and there was NO improvement in performance. A hat-trick of nothing. As for employees only dropping in, if the company was actually interested in meeting customer needs, they'd be proactive, and openly visited, support and moderate this site. As it is, they take the easy way out, and don't visit, instead relying on the CUSTOMER to vote for improvements. I've never known any company duck responsibility so much. There was a employee above who responded to say this feature wasn't being worked on. Did she mention to vote for it? No. I didn't even know about the vote button because its indistinct and anonymous looking, and in both my browsers, simply says '0' (not 'the number of votes for this idea is ...') so I have no idea if the idea is already popular or if I'm the only one interested or if the site isn't displaying correctly. As it is, voting looks a waste of time as there is no commitment from the company to actually act, and I suspect they simply act on what they want to regardless of what customer want. As for development, there's been no real new features in the last 6 or so 'updates' virtually every change can be described as a bug fix or simple changes to an existing feature. I've gone back to using Pocket. A delight to use, the webclipper works almost faultlessly unlike ENs which fails on one third of sites I use, and if ever there is a problem with the pocket clipper, its easy to contact them and within days its fixed. Unlike EN where months later it still doesn't work for me on the whole of one site, despite giving them the domain that didn't work and describing the problem. Complete waste of time trying. The only thing not perfect about Pocket is that it doesn't have folders, but its something I can live with because everything else works, unlike EN where the only thing that worked was the folders.
  5. Well said MomoG, but I fear we're all talking to the wall, Evernote seem particularly unresponsive to customer feedback and have already said it's not a priority. In fact they seem very slow at fixing the bugs never mind introducing new features. For a product supposed to be convenient and let you work the way you want to, it seems to have a lot of inconvenient "like it or lump it" features.
  6. That's ok then, thought maybe you had the deluxe version! Lol Looking at the widget, shortcuts etc, but it's only making do rather than meeting the need. Having the app open to wherever it was needed would be a good feature.
  7. I don't want all notes, I would like to see a list of notebooks because I want to see notes in different folders. I'm puzzled why scruggles (and thge poster after her) says the list widget can show the notebook list.
  8. How do you do that? When creating a widget, there's two choices, Action Widget or List Widget. The List Options for the List Widget are to show: Recently Viewed, Recently Updated; Notebook (which shows the contents of a specific NB); Reminders; Shortcuts or Tags. I don't see any option to show all Notebooks. Am I missing something?
  9. Hi scruggles. Yes, I'll take you up on that. I'll have to check first to make sure. I've all but stopped using Android to make clips because of the problems, I've gone back to the much less convenient desktop because the clipping works 100%, In fact the Windows clipper is brilliant. I'll send the URLs and some notes via messenger if that's ok?
  10. setting a default notebook to open to would be useful I think. Yes, it is simple to get to your chosen notebook, why you could say that about any irritating feature. Turn the argument around - if it opened to a deafult book, its only two actions to get back to the list of notes! If the list of notes was intended to be used so much, or be the default, why have folders, AKA notebooks? Why not just put everything into one place? If a user doesn't use tags or notebooks, opening to the note list makes sense - it matches the way the user works. But I'll wager that most users use either tags/notebooks or use both, which implies that they want to view their work in that way, with notes being differentiated/separated from each other according to some criteria. Sticking them all altogther doesn't match the way they work, and contradicts the tag/notebook design rationale. There is also the privacy issue, when EN opens, the screen is filled with your notes, maybe you wouldn't want someone looking over your shoulder to see some/any of them? Even opening to the list of notebooks would be better than a list of notes jumbled together regardless of tags of folders. A product like EN is about convenience and productivity, using UI taps just to get to see your work is neither convenient or aid productivity, quite the opposite. It's interesting that EN for Windows opens at the last viewed notebook, whilst the Web beta and Android versions open to the notes list.
  11. I use a Kindle running Cyanogenmod OS and there are one or two sites I visit daily where clipping fails virtually 100% of the time. When clipping does succeed it can take 10 minutes or more - a totally unreasonable time. The same sites clip perfectly on my desktop. The android store does have some alternative clippers some free some not, and I found one that works on the problem sites, but its overall not as good as the EN clipper which I prefer (and it isn't free). I used to use Pocket, and when I found a site that didn't save properly, I would just send them the URL and they would fix it within a day or two, not just for that specific page, but for the whole site. I wish EN would facilitate reports in that way. The clipper is a great idea, but is far from perfect.
