About J Henry

  1. Just suddenly started having problems in the last couple of weeks very similar to this post: I am working in notes with big lists and other plain text content. I might copy something and it pastes back as nothing or just a new line, or just part of the whole piece I copied. I press fn+delete and instead of forward deleting as typical mac behavior it just back spaces. Numbered lists of notes do not join. Previously if you had two lists, one right after the other, you could "join" them by deleting the empty space between and the numbers on the second list would then cary on
  2. Although I just found this: http://www.documentsnap.com/evernote-gets-stacks/ Interesting article about stack when they added them in 2010. Before that there were no stacks! I don't remember if I was a user then, but I doubt it lol.
  3. This might be true. Maybe the Evernote people have a more specific use case for evernote than some of their users do. Statistically speaking, that is very likely true. But you end up getting many people with very different organizational styles using it. That leads to my curiosity about why they wouldn't add it, which based on the evidence, will not be answered by the Evernote team Haha, those are clever solutions, but seems it would be a pain in the butt to use A-Z listed tags. I suppose I do not have the problem @gazumped has. I like to use a directory structure, and rarely hav
  4. The problem is that with nested tags tags still must be unique. For example, if I have two top level tags for broad concepts: "concept a" and "concept b". Now both have random assortments of sub-tags, but both also should have a subtag called "subtag a", they cannot both have "subtag a" as a child. "subtag a" must be a top level tag. This destroys the actual usefulness of nested tags unless you are willing to name all tags uniquely. If you're doing that though you're basically just making a rigid directory like structure out of tags, which is not how tags have ever worked, and thats not the pu
  5. Haha, lets hope. @TheMagicWombat, yes, that is more of an accurate analogy. Well, if I go to Wallmart I can buy all sorts of notebooks with categories, and sub categories. Some are even extensible so I can make as many levels as I want! Also interestingly enough, no where else in all my tech experience have I encountered a nesting tag function (anecdote, I know). It breaks with tradition though, and reverses the dichotomy between hierarchy, and random cross-association. If all the notebooks are for, as I've heard multiple people on the forum say, is to identify
  6. Hi @BSR, Thanks for responding. My question still lingers. Seeing all the other threads that are feature requests, I decided not to make this thread one. Instead just a question about Evernote's thinking regarding not implementing this feature. e.g. is it something you don't believe in? is it something that is not that important? or maybe is it something you're planing to implement soon? Hopefully I have made myself clear, I do not mean to suggest that it should be done, or anything else. I am only curious to know why it hasn't been done, and what your thinking is behind that or doin
  7. I've looked over the 33 page long thread regarding more deeply nested notebooks and some other threads. The only posts from verified Evernote employees that I saw only offered alternatives to notebook nesting (which is usually the hierarchical tagging system), which seem to have been clearly identified as useful, but not identified as negating the use of a more "folder" or "directory" like hierarchy, which also clearly seems to be desired by many many users. Personally, I'm at the point where I will be looking for an alternative, or making my own.. probably using Github, and making a smal
  8. I would LOVE to see at least one more level of nesting added as well. I understand how tags work completely. They do not suite my needs. They are not as prominently featured in the side navigation. There are many valid reasons as discussed here why they do not suite all users. Does anyone understand Evernote's current reason for only supporting 2-level deep nesting?
