  1. Yes, all of my notebooks are organized into one of two stacks, home or work. Work notebooks are all local and home notebooks are sync'd to the cloud.
  2. My line of separation is local notebooks for work and sync’d ones for personal. That has worked well for 12+ years I’ve been on Evernote. Like others there are things that I would like to see changed or improved and I occasionally check out the latest shiny tool but when renewal time comes I don’t spend much time deciding whether premium for another year is worth it to me or not. i have jumped around with todo apps some for various reasons but I find that an easier playground to experiment with.
  3. Some manage this by using separate EN accounts. I keep everything in one account but I have setup a work stack and a home stack and then have two saved searches, one to search only home and another to search only work. If I’m in a sensitive setting I’ll click on the work saved search first and then drill down from there.
  4. If I'm understanding what you want this can be done today on Windows and the Mac. As you type keywords, tags, or any search criteria the note list updates with the filtered view of notes. You can then save that search string as a saved search for later use if you want.
  5. I'll grudgingly agree to Shemp as a 4th, but anyone putting up Curly Joe or Joe will be dead to me... Yes, I spent way too much of my youth with the Stooges.
  6. I was also on the one task, one note team and with saved searches that worked well for me for several years. My workplace recently moved over to Outlook and I discovered that Todoist has a really nice plug-in for Outlook that allows me to keep a todo pane open all the time, so at least for work I've migrated over to Todoist. In a bit of overkill I'm been checking out Things 3 for personal todos. I do find dedicated todo apps a little more seamless than using Evernote which for task management is usable but is a little clunky and missing some features ... IMO
  7. Personally, I have no interest or need for that. Maybe in a business environment. Not discrediting your input, just offering a different perspective.
  8. I believe if you change this value to 0, search-as-you-type feature will be completely disabled. It has been there for about 8 years (according to the note I saved), but agree that it is not easily discoverable.
  9. The work around isn't bad, but I also would prefer true pinning especially now that I use it in my email client.
  10. It would be an interesting experiment if Evernote did add this but only for Premium users to see if it drives additional business. I suspect we would just see additional forum traffic asking for it to be added to the basic plan.
  11. On Windows, if you don't have the arrows on the toolbar, use customize toolbar to add them.
  12. They haven't been implemented yet.
  13. Same here. I'm a fairly recent convert over to a Mac and there are still times when I'll hook up a mouse instead of using the touch pad. Too many years with a mouse I guess...
  14. Interesting ... I only have one account (premium) account that I'm aware of, but maybe I accidently created a free one in the past that I'm not remembering.
  15. Sign up for Premium 😀 I believe this change took place a few years ago. You get the 5 to test drive the feature but that is it.
  16. I must say I was pretty excited to receive this since I've been paying full price for a while now and having a new year with a discount sounded pretty good. After following the link I get a "Sorry, that offer isn't valid with your account" message. I get that the intent is to entice basic members into a paid plan, but please filter out premium members from the email distribution if they are ineligible. I recall this happened at least once before.
  17. What!?! Only two count ... the other two should never be acknowledged. They are a pock on the Stooge legacy. What was this thread about anyway??
  18. Same here, one just came in this morning so, yup, still working. Just noticed the new avatar. Paging Dr. Howard, Dr Fine and Dr Howard ... ah good memories. I wasted, I mean dedicated, my youth to all things Stooges. Good choice!
  19. The 1% figure was surprisingly low to me as well. Stated a little differently, it would be interesting to know what the usage percentage is for paying customers. I suspect the 1% is based on total users, however that is defined. I have little interest in what the free community uses or wants ... I think they already have it too good 😁.
  20. Thanks for the detailed response and glad to hear that Evernote considers reminders important. I am currently not part of the 1% but was for many years. I moved away from Evernote reminders because other apps were just more seamless for my current workflow. It will be very interesting to see what the team comes up with.
  21. How do you have this set up? I have the same scanner wireless to the Mac running Mojave and everything works great. I can scan directly into Evernote. I've been holding off upgrading to Catalina because I think that will force me to use ScanSnap Home and I didn't think that would allow scans directly into Evernote. I don't want to scan into their cloud and I've heard that import folders are possible on the Mac but, as I recall, were difficult to set up. I could hook the scanner to the PC but that is the work system and I'd like to avoid that.
  22. A couple of others that I find useful. In addition to controlling the merge order you can also define what the border between the merged notes looks like. Also Windows allows you to set color and font for tag and notebook names helping them stand out in the left hand pane.
  23. If you haven't already, check out the latest web version. Evernote is test driving an updated search there, as well as a new editor. At some point these will get rolled out to the other clients.
  24. They are working on feature parity so maybe this is something that will show up eventually. In the meantime, get chummy with someone with a Mac or Windows system. 😀
  25. So if you are using a computer and not just a Chromebook, why not load that client software and use the exporting capabilities that provides? The web version has gotten better but it doesn't have all of the capability that the Mac/PC versions provide.
