  1. Thanks for the feedback. The first time you delete a note, it should display a dialog warning/confirming, with a checkbox that says "don't show me this again". You may have chosen that checkbox if you no longer see that dialog when you delete.
  2. Or, of course, just select what you want in Chrome and then clip via: Cmd+C to copy Ctrl+Cmd+V to paste to a new note in Evernote
  3. The Chrome extension always clips directly to the web service. To view the note on your Mac client, you would need to sync afterwards. Google doesn't really want native code in their extension gallery as far as we can tell, which means that the add-on is Javascript-only.
  4. If you're trying to clip directly to the web, then I'd recommend disabling all other add-ons to see if that works. We've found that some security settings and third-party add-ons can break our Javascript-only clipping.
  5. Check the Preferences for our add-in from the Firefox extensions list. Try changing the first option to clip to the web vs. to desktop Evernote. If you have been clipping directly to the Windows application in the past, you may need to try uninstalling Evernote and reinstalling via a fresh download from http://www.evernote.com/about/download/
  6. Which operating system are you using? Are you using the "Clip to Evernote Web" setting, or the "Clip to Evernote on your desktop" setting? I tried it both ways from OS X 10.6, and it seemed to work. Thanks
  7. We only do OCR on PDFs for Premium accounts. The way we handle PDFs is a bit different than images, since we assume a clean scan of printed text, and we produce a single transcription of the PDF. For images, we have more of a "fuzzy" match that produces trees of possibility that can be searched (but not easily extracted). So handwriting will usually not be handled very well on PDFs, but will work well in JPEG documents.
  8. Can you confirm whether you've changed any of the security settings in your browser? In particular, have you changed any cookie settings? (E.g. related to "third party" cookies?) Thanks
  9. When you clip a note to Evernote from any of our "web clippers", we keep track of the "source URL" so that you can click on it in the note header to find the original web page later. That clipping history feature (dubbed "site memory") takes the current web page you're viewing and asks the web service for the notes that start with the same hostname in their "source URL." So this is just using the information that we've already been storing on the server for 2+ years. And it's only available if you've signed in to your Evernote account from that web browser.
  10. We haven't yet done this work, but still intend to. Thanks
  11. Try uninistalling our add-on, restart Firefox, and then reinstall our extension from: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8381/ If that doesn't work, you can try changing the settings in the Add-ons page by clicking the "Preferences" button on our entry.
  12. Unfortunately, most of our decisions aren't based on "good" versus "bad", but rather "with our limited resources, how can we best attract, retain, and monetize a large number of users." So if we aren't paying two Silicon Valley engineers to spend a year writing a Linux client, it's not that I'd hate to see a Linux client, or we don't take Linux "seriously" (we're running around 80 Linux servers). But rather that we feel that we can attract and maintain more users by spending more money on (e.g.) a better Android client that will be bundled on dozens of phones and attract thousands of new Evernote users each day via the App Market. The Linux ~1% desktop market share translates to a lot smaller number of bodies who install and pay for third-party applications than the global Android market share. We are, however, actively encouraging third party developers who want to build applications that can use Evernote as a back-end storage system. Those developers could choose to GPL their apps, or sell them if they want. That includes Randy's project, but also things like integration with Tomboy: http://github.com/dvj/EvernoteSyncAddin If you take Linux seriously and want to see one of those projects complete faster, you could offer to help on the coding.
  13. Not currently. We're trying to balance the memory limits of the device and the size and duration of audio recordings. Currently, the audio is relatively compressed WAV files.
  14. You may want to uninstall the extension and then use our Javascript "bookmarklet" web clipper from the bottom of: http://www.evernote.com/about/download/web_clipper.php
  15. If you clip using Chrome, the notes should appear within your account on the web right after you clip. Make sure to press the button in the clipping window to save the clip ... if you just click away from the clipping confirmation window, no note will be created. After you create the note in the web service, you can view it on your Mac or Windows client by pressing the "Sync" button to synchronize with the service.
  16. There are still some fragmentation issues, which means that the really nice applications are ones that are done specifically for the platform.
  17. I don't have a release date for the shared notebook access in the clients, but this is still something we're planning.
  18. Unfortunately, I've filed a bug but don't have a date for when this will be fixed. I do apologize for the inconvenience.
  19. You can take a picture of such a barcode, but we don't do any special processing on that image.
  20. Yes, Evernote for Windows supports stylus input on Tablet PCs.
  21. I think the stylus tips are fat and spongy because the resolution of the touch screen isn't very precise (it's tuned for fingers). If the styluses had a fine point, the screen might not pick up the presses, and the interpreted location may not match the location of the point.
  22. On your MacBook, try logging on to your web account using Safari (not Firefox or Chrome) on the same machine. Do you get any errors, warnings, or dialog boxes when you try this from Safari?
  23. Unfortunately, "offline" synchronization isn't a half-client, that's a huge full client. Even Android (our #2 mobile platform), doesn't have this capability yet.
  24. You could open a support inquiry so that we can get the detailed error information from your device via Apple's Configuration Utility: http://www.evernote.com/pub/ensupport/f ... f88f21&b=0 You can open a support inquiry at the bottom of: http://www.evernote.com/about/contact/support/
  25. From the E71, you can search and view your notes via our web interface: http://www.evernote.com/m You can create and edit text-based notes from that same interface. You can add pictures to your account quickly by emailing new snapshots from the native camera application to the "incoming email address" for your account (which you can see on the Settings page on the web). If you add this to your Address Book on the phone, this can be a very quick operation. So you can use Evernote from the E71, but not via a native application yet.
