  1. Premium offers many things over free accounts. I don't know why hiding or (semi-customize, whatever that means) would be something that would generally be expected.
  2. I know you don't speak for Evernote, but this is exactly what I believe the company's attitude is. And it's not for me to judge your preference for wallowing; I'd rather continue pursuing worthwhile workarounds or alternatives, and evaluating whether or not I should remain a paying customer of the company. As I said, any company must make decisions based upon priorities. I'm sure they wish they could please ALL 100+ million users, but of course, that's not possible. Rather than ascribe attitudes to Evernote that really only simply reflect your dissatisfaction is unfounded and quite frankly, serve no purpose. Your goal of "pursuing worthwhile workarounds or alternatives", OTOH, is useful & is exactly what many of us regularly post here on the board to those who say feature XXX is a dealbreaker. Since EN does not post their roadmap, each user must decide if their prized missing feature is a deal breaker (and find an alternative app) or find a viable workaround. That's pretty much how many things in life work.

  4. If your phone is not syncing & you are using the exact same account, then this is probably what's in the cache on the phone. Mobile devices don't sync the body of the notes unless you have a premium account & designate all or some of the notebooks for offline access. And of course, if you're not sycn'ing the phone, then that's what's in the cache from the last time it did sync.
  5. If you had synced to a desktop client and backed that up, you can retrieve your notes from the backup...
  6. In addition to what Jefito & Metrodon said, there are only so many things any one or any company can do & do well. The forum is filled with dozens & dozens of feature requests. EN must make decisions about what they will add & what they will not add (for whatever reason). Then the items they have decided to add must be prioritized & some of those features should sync & work across all the clients. IE, highlighting, reminders, shortcuts, etc. So there are always going to be those who are disappointed that their particular feature request is not granted. It appears that those who want markdown will have to wallow in their disappointment along with those wanting nested notebooks & a Linux client.
  7. Pass. For "true" to do/task list management, I use a, well, true task list/to do list manager. When I use checkboxes in Evernote, it's for things like an "intermediate" series of tasks. IE, I'm working on a project that may take only a few hours (say, less than four). But I will be multi tasking & the list is to simply keep track of what's been done & what the next step is. Or for other things that are not tasks, such as sending out invitations to a party. I make a list of invitees & then tick the box when that person has been sent an invitation.
  8. Comparing blog software (which is really what you're referring to rather than a blog itself) to Evernote is apples & oranges, since the main purpose of blog software is very similar to a text editor/word processor (presentation). Good luck with whatever app you find that better suits your needs.
  9. That's my point. If you read the posts, you will see "the evangelists" have stated repeatedly that EN is not a text editor & therefore may not have some features a text editor should have. It's also not a to do/task list manager, a password manager or a spreadsheet. Does it allow you to do some of those things? Yes. But if you want a full featured text editor, spreadsheet, password manager, etc, etc, etc, you should use one. Evernote's main focus is (and always has been, as far as I can see), collecting, organizing & retrieving information.
  10. I would suggest you rename it to something, then rename it back to what you want it to be. Sometimes, if you accidentally hit a key, it may look ok, but the underlying data is not the same as it looks. I see this often, when someone enters a tab key or something.
  11. An account contains notes. Each note resides in one notebook. Notebooks can be grouped by stacks. Stacks cannot contain notes. Each notebook is arranged alphabetically under the account (if not in a stack) or the stack. You may need to exit out, if you've just created it, as Jeff pointed out. If that doesn't fix it, then there is an additional space or something that is causing it to *appear* that it's not alphabetical, but it is. EDIT: Sniped by Jeff!
  12. It may be for presentation mode... Notebooks are organized under the stack in alphabetical order.
  13. It may not be compatible with your OS level. What level OS are you running?
  14. Sounds like a question for the Postbox folks. Have you done this?
  15. Lordy, Lordy, Jeff. Now you've gone & done it. There will be posts about those nasty evangelists defending Evernote b/c it's already perfect.
  16. There are a couple of workarounds discussed above. Have you tried them???
  17. I don't think they have to unshare. Once the owner of the notebook removes sharing, it just happens. But yes, the new notebook will need to be re-shared. Again..that's just fallout from the way you set this up. If you had created an account specifically for work & didn't have your personal notes in it, then it would simply be a matter of giving someone else the login credentials.
  18. I don't understand what you mean about importing will "mess up the other team members who use the notebook." If you mean the new employee will need to reshare, yes. (shrug) That's kind of the pitfall of how you implemented something. But it's really NBD & life goes on, eh? It's really pretty simple. If over half of your notes need to be left with the company, then export the personal notes to enex. Change the credentials on the old account & set up your new account & import the enex file. Then delete those notes from the first/old account, empty trash & sync. Then hand over the new login credentials for the old account. If over half of your notes are personal, then you simply export to enex & give that file to someone at work to import. IDK why EN doesn't allow quickly changing owners but I'd guess it has something to do with privacy issues. The fact of the matter is that this is the way it currently works.
  19. The clipper doesn't use another password b/c the only password it needs is your EN password, so it can access your EN account & place the note in your EN account. You may need to sign out of the clipper in order to re-enter login credentials.
  20. As Scott said, you omly need one. The clipper uses your EN password. There's no different password for the clipper.
  21. It's helpful to mention what client you're using, when asking for help. The Windows desktop client allows you to copy notes. I think the Mac client does as well. Edit: sniped by Jeff ;-)
  22. If it's true, I'm sure they appreciate you keeping it quiet.
