    A single editor on multiple platforms would be ok if i the data actually looked consistently the same and the editor behaved mostly the same across platforms. My concern would be that this means Evernote will never be any better than the javascript it is based on. This helps explain why some important feature requests are not implemented, and some apparently trivial ones are. I don't have fond memories of javascript programs personally, maybe this has changed over the years. I generally avoid browser based programs, unless required by my employer. --- By the way, anybody knows why the order of responses in this forum is often all over the place? it is hard to follow the conversation when the order is not strictly chronological.

    Keyboard Shortcut for Tags

    One more suggestion, to save you yet another step, you could accept the system's default decision to make the first line of the body the title, that way you don't have to go to the title field at all. That way you also don't have to set the focus to the title field by default.

    That makes perfect sense and I do something similar, but if you prefer to do it without the mouse, you could first set the focus of the new note to the title by default in Options, then tab to the body, and finally F3 to the tag . It would alter your flow a little, but it would work without the mouse. 🙂

    If you are referring to being stuck in the tag field without the mouse since ESC doesn't work, Alt-F4 still works, should take you back to your previous screen without a mouse.

    Keyboard Shortcut for Tags

    Wow, I was not aware about F3, I don't see it in the main menu or in the right click menu, or in the search grammar help. I wonder in what help page was that gem buried. With F3, there is no need for Ctrl-Alt-T, in fact that interface is rather clumsy by comparison with F3. I forgot about Ctrl+Q, but it doesn't work well in my case, if you type a single character, it only shows searches, not tags, you need to type at least 2 characters to show tags, and even then mixed with searches and book names, so the prefix tagging some of us use doesn't work well with Ctrl-Q. Needless to say, problem solved. 🙂 EDIT: Had to google it to find the source: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209004807-What-are-the-keyboard-shortcuts-in-Evernote-for-Windows-

    In a way it does make sense that it should disappear when the note is deleted, but considering how easy it is to accidentally delete or alter a note since there is no read-only feature, I think I prefer it the way it is, but would be fine if this could be disabled with a checkbox in options.

    Just for fun, I decided to cook up a quick script to see if it would work, I tested it to work, though it has some specific assumptions (uses Winkey-B as a hotkey, just for this example) #b:: Send ^!t Sleep 100 Send -3 ; -3 is the prefix of one of several numbered tags I have, you would change this to whatever system you use. Sleep 100 Send {return} Sleep 100 Send {tab}{tab} Sleep 100 Send {return} return ----------------------------------------------------------------- The assumption I used is that you want one specific tag repeatedly, this could be modified to wait for manual selection instead. I have a group of tags organized with the following prefixes: -1 -2 -3 -4 etc Hence the way I created the script for simplicity. Manually, this particular group of tags can be called by typing the single dash character in the tag field. I hope this is of some help.

    Strange that the thumbs up thingy is not working . . . A temporary solution is to mark your tags with special prefixes. I have some tags that begin with a dash (-), some with +, other with a period, etc. Then when pressing Ctrl-Alt-T, click on "Hide unassigned tags" (this will stick so you don't have to click it anymore), after that, every time you click Ctrl-Alt-T again and type your special character, a much smaller group of tags will appear, which you can easily navigate with the keyboard. If they implement your idea, I would prefer a check box in options for whether Tab/Shift-Tab will stop on the tag field or skip it like it does now, but for now this might work for you. If you don't mind going to the trouble to create an AutoHotkey script, you can create a hotkey for your frequently used tags, using my suggestion above as a base for reducing the number of key strokes.

    Using tags to implement dynamic ToDo lists

    Are you sure? It is true that I do not see reminder options to set in iOS like with Android, but all the test reminders I added are already sorted by reminder time, not by created or updated.

    Going back and forth between versions can sometimes play havoc with you data, since the earlier versions don't handle well some of the changes in the newer versions. It's safer staying put with either version. Version 6.7 is still much more stable and reliable, but for those of us who went along for the ride, this is the calm after the storm. Worth it? We'll see.

    Using tags to implement dynamic ToDo lists

    I took a look at it on my ipad mini after adding a bunch of reminders. That does seem like the ideal solution, though I think I am beginning to understand a little the approach used on my Android phone. After playing with all the settings in EN Android for a while, it maybe better than a saved search, simpler at least, though iOS is much nicer.

    In the note list together with and before all your notes? In Android, reminder view is not a separate view from the note list, that's what I was referring to. You previously mentioned you don't use this feature since you use a saved search instead. I would assume a saved search for reminders would show you reminders independently of the note list, (in Android) this might negate the need for reminder view. I am thinking about that approach as an option, will figure it out eventually.

    I wasn't referring to wanting to disable all reminders, rather I was making the point that a reminder far into the future should not be seen, vs a reminder for next week, for example. If reminders in Android are an all or none proposition, they are not useful, in my view. There needs to be a setting to regulate when reminders are shown, the way they would in a Calendar app.

    Strange bug in 6.13.14. I switched the left panel dark theme to light, when Evernote came back, all my notes disappeared, when I switched back to dark, Evernote didn't come back, the icon on the status bar disappeared, and trying to run the program again did not bring it back, so I rebooted. I did confirm that when it was unresponsive and hiding, Evernote was still in memory per task manager. I was able to repeat this process twice with the same results, in Windows 10. --- I was not able to reproduce the same bug in Windows 7. I wonder whether it is related to the fact that emojis don't work in the notebook list or the tag list (in Windows 7, they work fine in Windows 10).

    Strange behavior not noticed before 6.13.14.7474 (307474): I use a reference note with links on a separate window, to do some weekly editing of notes in the main window. This has been working fine until this week, when it started jumping around between windows upon clicking a link, so I thought I would check the program options. 1-When "Open links from other applications in a new window" is not selected, clicking on links in a separate note window causes the link to be followed in the main window (not the expected behavior of course). 2-When "Open links from other applications in a new window" is selected, clicking on links in any note, whether on the main window or on a separate Evernote window causes the link to be followed in a new window. Doing it again on the second window causes a third window to open. Doing it again on the third window causes the link to be followed within the window, as it is supposed to in the first place. I understood that option to refer to programs outside of Evernote only, and I never noticed this behavior until this weekend, when I tried my weekly editing of personal notes. I was able to reliably reproduce this behavior in both Windows 10 and Windows 7. ___ I also noticed this version is generally more stable for my use as well.
