  1. Thanks for this suggestion, but it doesn't seem to do the trick. The right margin of the table certainly slides left and right according to the width of the Evernote screen, but the text itself gets cut off on the right. I've been struggling with this for a long time; if anyone has an idea how to resolve the problem, I'd be delighted to hear it.
  2. I've experimented with yellow tables like this, not because I'm a lawyer (definitely not) but because I dislike the pure white background of notes in Evernote. The problem I've encountered is that the horizontal dimensions of a table do not automatically adjust when you modify the width of the Evernote screen. This means that you either have to make the table very narrow or fiddle with its width constantly. Has anyone else found a solution to this problem?
  3. For some reason that doesn't work on my computer (Windows 10), but I can temporarily enlarge or reduce the font size of any note by using control-plus or control-minus.
  4. I believe the list of note titles at the left of the screen will be substantially larger in the next version of Evernote. I've signed up for the beta but haven't been able to see it yet; on the other hand, that's my impression from the various "Behind the Scenes" videos.
  5. Just got this note from Evernote: "After reviewing the information provided further, we were able to determine this was a UI issue rather than a data issue. Our engineers were making updates on the backend which temporarily disabled note history for some users. Our apologies for any alarm and for the disruption to your workflow."
  6. Yesterday I got in touch with Evernote and had a lengthy discussion about the problem. Then this morning I checked in my Evernote files and the note histories had mysteriously reappeared. I have no idea what happened: did they make some adjustment in my account, or did they fix a problem that affected other users as well? Anyway, I'm relieved to have recovered this information.
  7. This morning I tried to look at the note history of a note, and I discovered, to my horror, that the note histories in all my many notebooks have disappeared (even though I have been a Premium subscriber for many years). Is this the result of some obvious blunder on my part? I certainly have used note histories in the past.
  8. Just a couple of very belated thoughts about tags and fonts. I would prefer to see the tags displayed at the top of the note rather than the bottom, though I can live with either arrangement. But the one menu that certainly must be preserved in some form is the “Assign tags” one (control-alt-t in Windows). That (or something like it) seems to me indispensable when dealing with a note that is connected with too many tags to be easily shown on the note screen. I’d also like to put in a word for a few more fonts — more, at least, than the half dozen that are now showing up on the Web version of Evernote. It’s easy to become addicted to one or two favorite fonts over the years (it’s Georgia in my case), and although it might sound like a trivial matter, using those particular fonts becomes a very important part of the user interface. It’s actually a big issue for some of us.
  9. I have a small question about tables. I've done some experiments with them, because I want to provide a non-white background to my text notes. I created a single-cell table with a satisfactory color in Word, pasted it into Evernote, and did some minor tweaking. At that point I had a pleasant-looking table that I could add to the list of standard templates. But then I discovered there was a serious problem with resizing the tables. If I make the table fairly narrow, it looks good on my phone but rather awkward on my computer screen; if I make the table wider, then it works better on my computer than on my phone (where text starts to run off the right edge of the screen). I gather that the tables created in Evernote do not automatically enlarge or contract according to the size of the screen. I'm under the impression that this question may have been discussed before on this forum. Has anyone come up with a solution?
  10. I've been using Georgia as my standard font in Evernote for many years: does this mean that I will now be forced to shift over to a no-name serif font selected by Evernote designers? If so, I would find it very difficult to live with that decision. Why not give us a choice of just a handful of serif fonts?
  11. Thanks for all the various suggestions and ideas -- very useful.
  12. I agree that it's inelegant (many things seem to be in Evernote), but it works for me. I just wish EN would allow me to create a new date field.
  13. I'm not tempted to use a spreadsheet for this data, because Evernote allows me to insert images (with OCR, no less) of dust-jackets and other visual aspects of the books, and of course I also depend very heavily on EN's tags.
  14. I see a "Subject" column on my screen but no "Subject date." I wonder if this is because the Windows and Mac versions have slightly different fields?
  15. Thanks. Just a few minutes ago I discovered how to do this. Now I will have to brood over the question of whether I will be losing any essential information by modifying the creation date.
