  1. Thanks! Found"Auto-title using location" was unticked. "Auto-title using calendar event," however, was already ticked. We'll see if the combination of both being ticked gives the desired results.
  2. I am glad that search is now working again thanks to the latest Android upgrade. I am noticing two differences and wondering if others are seeing the same thing. Also wondering if there perhaps a setting that needs to be rechecked somewhere. 1) When I search on the Android app, I seem to remember that the search would not only return notes meeting the criteria, but would highlight each instance of the search term in the notes it returned. Am I remembering that correctly? On the latest version (8.9.1), search is working, but not highlighting. 2) When I create a new note, if there is an entry on my Google Calendar at that time, the default title of the note has always been the name of the meeting. That is no longer happening. The title of the note is blank. (Maybe this is by design. Perhaps most didn't find it a useful feature.) Thanks for any light you can shed. Frank
  3. Shane, Shane, I was looking at my version number yesterday and it was 8.9.1 then. I looked at the date of the last update and it said May 10. Is it possible this announcement was written on May 10 and was just now posted?
  4. The solution suggested earlier in this thread worked for me: Android app -> Settings -> Search and Storage -> clear local search history & clear cache. However, the next day, the problem returned. Ran the same fix and search worked again. Are others experiencing the same thing? Are you having to run the fix every time you you restart the phone? Or does it have to do with every time the app syncs? Trying to identift the variables here.
  5. Scott, Thanks! That's what I needed to know. Frank
  6. Thanks for getting back with me. Of course, the experienced user knows about the ability to rename notebooks, tags, stacks, etc. The beginner does not and needs clear instructions. Here's why this point is important...If you are walking someone through setting up account, especially if you aren't sitting beside them, you want to be accurate with what the novice is going to see. Hopefully someone who has recently assisted someone else with creating an account will respond.
  7. Quick question... In the past, when creating a new account, Evernote would start you off with one notebook. It would be named for the user..."Jim's Notebook," for example. I have always taught people to rename that notebook ".Inbox." (The period in front of the word causes that notebook to sort to the top of the list.) I heard someone recently say that when you create a new account, that one notebook is automatically called "Inbox." Is that true? If so, is there some punctuation in front of the word? (Of course, I could just create a new account and see for myself, but I didn't want to clutter cyberspace with one more junk account.)
  8. Take a look at this: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005587-How-to-annotate-images-and-PDFs-in-Evernote
  9. Bidel, Evernote is exactly the right software to organize your notes. Wish I had it 20 years ago when I did my dissertation. I suggest your research project be a STACK and each chapter in your project be a NOTEBOOK. Each entry will be a NOTE. Use TAGS to identify the to[ic for each note.
  10. Take a look at CloudHQ.net. I wrote a post about it: https://www.frankbuck.org/cloudhq-easy-way-to-sync-your-accounts/ The site is designed to allow you to keep different services in sync with each other. But, you can also do a one-way sync. In your case, you could do a one-way sync from OneNote to Evernote. You could then turn the sync off if you wanted. You would be able to do what you want to do for free.
  11. I generally use the Evernote desktop client for my work (as opposed to Evernote Web. When I search for a term and that term appears in a photo, the desktop client (Windows) not only returns in the search the note containing the photo but also highlights the term in yellow. When I search in Evernote Web, the correct notes are returned in the search but the search terms are not highlighted in the photo. Is this the way it's supposed to work? Is there a setting I am missing?
