  1. Hi everyone, I work in software and do a lot of note taking about client workflows, feedback etc. I tend to write notes as a way of describing what i've observed, or I am hearing which means that notes are a mix of declarative statements (e.g. "this happens like that") interspersed with questions (e.g. "But why does this happen like that?"). I would like a method of capturing these questions as I take notes that: Is clean and tidy. I.e. formatted in a way that makes the questions easily distinguishable from the statements Is quick. I.e. achievable using a hotkey or some form of 3rd party automation e.g. Alfred Allows me to maintain context. I.e. The question is either positioned next to related statements, or at the very least linked to the statements So far, the best thing I can come up with is: Capture a question using a checkbox Indent a bullet point under the question to create space for the answer However, this is very messy (see attached screenshot). What are the innovative ways that people deal with this?
  2. Hi, Until this morning, whenever I copied an image and pasted to Evernote, the image would simply save inline as an image. I would then right click the image and choose to annotate it. This morning, i made the mistake of clicking on the "Annotate this note" button instead. It converted an image inside the note to PDF and once I had finished annotating, dropped the pdf file into the note. That in itself wouldn't be an issue. However now, every-time I copy/paste an image into Evernote, that image is automatically converted to PDF. This is a significant issue for me, as i regularly use the following workflow: Screen clip and paste into evernote annotate image in evernote copy image from evernote into other docs (word, google docs etc) This isn't working with the sudden change to PDF. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Zak
  3. Hi, As per below screenshot - when I try to 'Open Note in New Tab' and am in Mac Splitscreen - the Evernote app crashes and has to restart. I've submitted error reports. A workaround is to create the multi-tab note then add to the splitscreen afterwards, using Mac Command Centre.
  4. +1 it's a little ridiculous that a note app doesn't have the ability to highlight in different colours.
