  1. The reason I don’t store it in EN or ON is that there’s just fewer extra steps required when working with this data. Also, I can still have it indexed and searched using DocFetcher, with index residing inside the same encrypted container, so it’s only accessible when this container is mounted.
  2. I keep my sensitive notes in OneDrive encrypted with Cryptomator. (Can be any location, I just happened to have O365). After Equifax, I don’t trust any single company to keep my data safe. Unless it’s zero knowledge encryption, I assume f’ups will happen. The question isn’t “if” but “when”. Even Cryptomator is not a 100% guarantee. But at least, it’s far less likely that the same nefarious actors will have access to both Evernote servers and Cryptomator exploits.
  3. The tags aren’t an issue as I am using plaintext tags everywhere and she’s been catching on with this method too. Web clipper works fairly well, actually. Are you referring to Notability for Mac? She’s using the iOS version, and it has a decent enough web clipper (you can send a webpage from Safari). It comes in as a searchable background image (or perhaps PDF). It also supports hyperlinks, but not between notes. What it really lacks is the ability to attach files, and web access.
  4. Well, then Wacom’s out i of question, too. Besides, Apple Pencil is great everywhere else. For now, she’s been taking notes in Notability and exporting to EN. This means that she has to edit them in Notability as well, do not the best setup.
  5. I don't believe there's any smart capacitive stylii (with palm rejection at least) for iPad. Bamboo, as far as I know, uses the same technology as Apple pencil.
  6. Glad to see it’s not just me. I don’t typically use Evernote - my wife does - and she didn’t have a pencil, so she never ran into this problem before. I just got her the 1st gen AP, and it just doesn’t work, skipping more strokes than it registers. Works great in every other app. Reading through this forum, it looks like this issue impacts both generations of Apple Pencil ? Does it also happen with 3rd party ones, like Wacom Bamboo ? I can still return the AP and get a different brand for her.
  7. Yes, scanning large number of documents requires quick and accurate auto-crop, auto shutter (app takes photo by itself the moment it recognizes page boundary), and accurate B&W creation (no blown areas or too dark areas). TurboScan gets it all, probably Readdle Scan does too (didn’t try it yet, thanks for the tip @PinkElephant). The latest version of Scanbot (they renamed it and made subscription but people who paid for the old version retained their functionality) looks like it’s also there now - it used to be slower from what I remember. Genius Scan is just almost there. But I’ll take any of them before I use a hardware scanner ever again.
  8. Well, it depends on the field, company, individuals involved etc. An employee trying to install a supposedly unbreakable encrypted volume on a company’s computer (that’s I assume connected to the corporate network) is going to make some more protective / paranoid people interested. Is he stealing IP? Does he keep porn on it ? Is he exposing us to any kind of liability? Even if the issue is easily explained, that’s not the kind of attention I’d want to attract.
  9. I used to have a flatbed scanner with a feeder for multiple sheets, but it was still a hassle and I found myself using my phone all the time, because I could do it anywhere and not be tied to one room. My favorite scan app is TurboScan for iOS, it’s suited very well for quick scanning of multiple pages in B&W. The rest are either not that good for auto cropping, or don’t always get a crisp B&W scan (especially if the original is not B&W or lighting is poor), or take too many extra steps. GeniusScan is also very good, but isn’t as fast and accurate in auto cropping. Another advantage of using a phone is that it’s very easy to combine different sources, e.g. a paper bill with a screenshot of a payment via bank app, or a manual for an appliance with photos of it set to specific settings. All of this can of course be done on a computer, but with more steps and delays.
  10. Installing Veracrypt on a work computer could raise a few eyebrows, depending on the company and the kind of information you are working with. What’s required is encryption at rest built into the program itself. I agree, using a personal phone and not letting any info sync to a computer that you have zero control over is the best approach.
  11. Get Bitwarden password manager, it has a build in functionality where it checks if your password has been included in the lists of compromised passwords sold on the internet. Also a pretty good PM overall.
  12. I had no problems using “dumb” felt tip stilii to take many pages of handwritten notes. While I strongly prefer iPads over Androids, there’s workable software in both environments. I do have an Apple Pencil now, and while it’s certainly a nicer writing device, it’s not a necessity, especially when using a zoomed area for handwriting that many note taking apps have. A short note can easily be taken on any iPhone or iPad. A used 6s is below $200 in the US, and would still be a perfectly serviceable phone even today (I’ve used one until spring). I’d couple it with Notability.
  13. This is not always feasible. Actually one thing I absolutely hate about Onenote (which I use extensively at work) is the inability to share individual notes. There's information that, as a project manager, I can't share with the rest of the team - financial data, some contract issues, some sensitive data belonging to the customers, etc. Not everyone in the project team has the same level of access. To @reniwqwil5 - if you're still checking this thread - I firmly believe, based on years of personal experience, that tasks belong in a program dedicated to task management. Evernote, Onenote, a mindmapping program, even a simple text file are great for brainstorming, but once a concrete task is identified, it needs to go into a service (app, program) that was specifically designed to handle tasks. Not mere checklists. This service should have the ability to assign due dates and reminders to tasks, delegate them to other team members, search and filter by project or tags or due dates, sync to mobile devices so that I could get a reminder anywhere. The key to not letting small tasks fall through the cracks is to (a) write all of them down and (b) set up reminders. I use plaintext tags everywhere (just because they are going to work across the board with different software). They are very easy to add while typing by using automation software like AutoHotKey. I then copy the individual tasks to the task managing system (also can be easily sped up with AHK). I use Outlook on Windows and MS ToDo on my iPad / phone (they use the same data), but only because our company is using Exchange. Any decent task management service (e.g. Trello that @PinkElephantsuggested above) would work as long as it supports reminders, due dates, and task delegation. (Although Outlook is extremely good). From there, I set up due dates and reminders, and delegate tasks to other people. A typical text I would type in a meeting would look something like this: Proposal #tgDue end of the month need an estimate from #tgJeff #tgFollowUp #tgAct Typing these tags is just a three letter combo thanks to automation (e.g. #tgFollowUp is created when I type qqu followed by space, qqa = #tgAct etc). After the meeting is over, I copy all of the note lines that have #tgAct in them into Outlook tasks. This can be done with a single click in Onenote, or automated using AHK if you're using some other program. I assign due dates and reminders as needed, and delegate whatever needs to be delegated (hence #tgJeff and #tgFollowUp). I then erase all #tgAct tags. Every now and then I search for #tgAct across my notes to make sure I didn't miss any. This way, all tasks get captured and I am reminded of them. After that, ***** up is entirely my problem...
  14. You don't see the gain in using common file types like spreadsheets directly without an external wrapper? Like, the ability to directly edit and mark up without having to undergo multiple steps? Real time collaboration on same document ? (Works great with OneDrive). Quickly sharing files? All of this while using multiple devices on multiple platforms (W10, Linux, Mac, iOS)? Saving notes / data in native format? Moving from one service to another without any modification whatsoever? You must not be sharing notes and records with others too much :) By "common" I mean PDF, XLSX, DOCX, JPEG, PNG, TXT. Webpages are confusing to many people when used as documents.
