  1. Then let the business set a policy NO PERSONAL EVERNOTE ACCOUNTS ALLOWED. There is no reason to make Evernote unusable for everyone else. That is Dilbert thinking. "The whole world must conform to that of the cubicle-dweller."
  2. In my continued monitoring of the functionality in Evernote 10 for Android relating to clipping and saving content, I have this to report to the group. Previous status: Terrible. New status: No change.
  3. 1. Whenever I try to save a webpage to Evernote on my Samsung Galaxy 10, the only thing that happens is that the EN app opens. But the clipping function doesn't appear. I wait and wait, but nothing. The clip didn't happen. So I have to go back to the browser and tell it to clip to EN again. 2. Then when I do it again, this time the clipping function will actually appear. But if EN was last used in my Personal profile and I want to clip to my Business profile (or vice versa), I have to stop the clipping process, switch accounts, go back to my browser, and try a 3rd time. 3. Now I can clip. But the Tagging feature does not work. I click on Add Tags, and nothing appears in the list. I have 100s of tags already defined. None of them are there. 4. A version or two ago, all these problems existed except for (3). But when I could tag, my next clip would assume I wanted the same tags. If I didn't want those tags, the only way to remove them was to scroll down my list of 100s of tags, and uncheck each of them. Not practical. So every clip requires three attempts, and it doesn't even come with the ability to tag. Does anyone at Evernote use the Android app? If so, someone might want to check and see if he's ok.
  4. Uninstalled app and reinstalled, that seemed to fix it.
  5. The bug is also in EN for Windows 10 apparently. Same behavior.
  6. I was searching for a note by the tag "Ideas", where I save a lot of notes. But on Android EN v. 10.6 (1111498) I only get 18 results. Same on Windows EN v. 10.9. So I launch trusty Windows EN version 6.25. Search by tag "Ideas". There they all are: 294 notes. Incidentally, if I update one of my notes on v. 6.25 and sync, then it shows up on the app. Bottom line: latest versions of EN are showing less than 10% of my notes.
  7. Avid EN user since 2012. Business user since ~2017. I tried EN 10 when it first came out a few months ago. Liked some things, but others were dealbreakers, including: Overall sluggishness: slow to load, slow to move around, even slow to type. Loss of functionality, e.g., unable to move or tag more than 50 notes at a time (dealbreaker for my business use). Using both my personal and business accounts at once. I cannot and will not stop everything I am doing and close all my open notes just to access a note in my Business account or vice versa. Over the weekend (2/28/21) I tried the latest EN version. Again, some things have improved. But the "dealbreakers" are not improved. (I didn't check working with more than 50 notes at a time.) I noticed another dealbreaker: In Business EN, when I filter by tag, it does not return notes in my private Business notebook. So the results are incomplete. And EN gives no indication that it is limiting my search results in this way. This is a big problem.
  8. FYI, support says this is a known issue expected to be resolved in next update.
  9. Me too. This was a change with one of the recent updates. My current EN version: (306387) Public (CE Build ce-1.36.3494). Running Windows 10. Here are the two traits that started driving me bonkers since version ~ 6.8.6: 1) Cannot drag PDFs from EN (using EN Business btw) to emails being composed in Outlook. Instead, I have to save to desktop. (There is a workaround: put the mouse cursor next to the PDF image in EN; shift+arrow to "select" it; copy it to clipboard; paste into application. But it is -- what's the word? inelegant? clumsy? stupid?) 2) Cannot drag PDFs to EN from Outlook (& similar applications). Instead, I have to save them first to the desktop.
  10. I'm familiar with this function, but it's only one-way -- i.e., there's no way to get them back into EN, except dragging them in one by one.
  11. Feel free to tell me if I'm straining the limits of Evernote, but here is what I'm trying to do: I am preparing a brief to be filed in an appellate court, and I am using EN to prepare the supporting appendix -- basically, several hundred PDFs that I will be citing to in the brief. I have the individual PDFs in separate notes all in a separate notebook in EN so I can easily find them and work with them. But now that I am nearly ready to prepare the appendix itself, there are some preparations I need to perform on the PDFs, e.g., OCRing them and numbering them. Sure would be nice if there's a way to OCR them in a batch without subjecting a staff member to the repetitive-muscle-disorder-inducing task of opening, OCRing, and saving all of them one by one. Are there any tricks that might help?
  12. Not sure what you mean by "tabs for each notebook." I can also open a note from one notebook in its own window and then work in a second notebook. What I need to be able to do is CREATE new notes in the first notebook without toggling back each time.
  13. I'm using EN Business in my law practice to help synthesize facts from a case file. I keep case file documents in one notebook, and build case facts in another notebook. The limitation is that it is difficult to toggle back and forth between my documents notebook and my facts notebook. To open a document, I have to go to one notebook; but to create a fact, I have to go to another notebook. Back and forth, back and forth. Sometimes I will use the web interface. But that is limited because the shortcut keys are different or unavailable, there is no highlighting function, sorting functions are limited, etc. One or both of the following features would be a great help: 1) Allow opening multiple instances/windows of Evernote. 2) Allow creating a business note via the shortcut-key Control+Alt+N. Currently, Control+Alt+N will only create a personal note. And Control+N will only create a new note in the current notebook. I need a way to create notes in a different notebook without having to leave the notebook I'm currently working in. Please advise. Thanks, Tim
