  1. As has been pointed out MANY times in this thread, no it's not. And even Word can edit HTML.
  2. Yup. What he said. Or... um... HTML! Because everyone, every platform has access to free browsers. Yup - what Chirmer said. Say what? Would you repeat that? Once more. This time with feeling! (emphasis mine) Because... Evernote uses ENML to display their notes. And guess what? ENML is a version of... HTML! So...to recap... (emphasis mine)
  3. I have over 63,000 notes in my main account & very rarely come across dups. But when I do, like Jefito & Factman, it's a "so what?" moment. I either merge them or put one in the trash, depending upon my mood. IE, if I'm not entirely sure they are dups, I merge them. NBD. But certainly I don't have "tons of duplicates" and this is not a "must have" for me. One of my "must haves" is having the Windows client be able to handle the large number of notes. (It doesn't). Or the iOS client able to handle large accounts. (It doesn't) Or have the web client search produce the same results the Windows client does. (It doesn't). Or having the note count the same between all clients when you have notebooks shared to you. (They aren't). Yeah, those are what I consider "must haves". But dups? No big deal. (shrug)
  4. There are always going to be customers who are frustrated & unhappy with something. The fact that this thread keeps getting resurrected doesn't really speak volumes. Instead, it indicates there are a few (out of 100+ million users) who don't understand how to get their files out, using a very common format today, html. I'm sure those who have posted in the linux client thread or those who have posted in the various "need sub notebooks" or "need password protected notebooks" threads also think their thread "speaks volumes". Like I said, I'm glad you found something that works for you. But that doesn't mean it's a flaw in Evernote simply b/c you needed a third party app to do what you wanted to do in a way you could understand. From the beginning, Evernote has welcomed third party apps to do specific tasks that EN the company has chosen not to do.
  5. Evernote has provided a generic way to export your notes & all contents INCLUDING all the various file types. The fact that you may not feel comfortable with html (which is pretty clear from your postings) is not Evernote's problem and others (myself included) have provided the info on how to get your files out. Sorry if that's too "tech" for some of you. But hey, I'm glad that those of you who are uncomfortable with html & Evernote's export process have FINALLY found a way that you do feel comfortable with. Hallelujah!!! Praise God!
  6. One reason is to conserve space. I have a LOT of programs on my computer & I NEVER install programs on my boot drive, unless there is no option to change it. It's easy as pie to replace any drive other than a boot drive, which requires special considerations. It's not all that difficult to make a new boot drive. But it's not as easy as copy/pasting files from one drive to another, either. When a boot drive starts to get full, it impacts the speed of everything you do on that computer. And if the boot drive gets full, you can't just buy a bigger one, copy the files over & swap it out, like you can with secondary drives. Instead, you have to make a new boot drive. So I keep everything I can off my boot drive and reserve it for use by the OS.
  7. They are functionally very different.
  8. Just change the created date to the date of the receipt.
  9. I have a love/hate relationship with NeatReceipts/NeatWorks/Neat/Whatever-their-name-is-today, which I've used for about eight years now. The love/hate relationship is b/c when it works, it's great. But when it doesn't, it's a major PITA to get working again. The problems are always with the software either installing an upgrade or (more recently) something was wonky with my database & even uninstalling, reverting to the previous version & restoring from a backup still didn't fix it. But I finally got it up & running on a different computer & now I'm a happy camper...until the next time. Anyway, I use it strictly for thermal receipts & like it b/c I don't have to tag anything, their OCR is pretty good & it's pretty easy to find a receipt by either vendor, date or amount. I used to put all receipts in there, but now only the thermal types. The larger receipts or ones a service tech gives you (IE A/C repair guy), stuff like that, I now put in Evernote. Plus, digital receipts always go in Evernote, simply b/c it's easier than printing the receipt to PDF & then importing into NeatReceipts. I'm not exactly sure why I segretate it this way. But certainly, I'm really not all that concerned with having all my Safeway, Walgreens, gasoline & Walmart receipts in Evernote b/c I rarely will need to pull them. OTOH, the invoice/receipt the A/C repair guy has me sign & then leaves a copy with me, well, I'm going to want to have that in Evernote in case I need to pull it later if/when we're having A/C problems again. BTW, I don't use the NeatReceipts cloud...just a local database that I backup often.
  10. On the the Windows desktop, conflicting notes are put into a local (non-sync'd) notebook. Macs may work similarly, but I don't know. If so, go,to your desktop, move the note to a sync'd notebook & sync. The note should now sync to the EN servers & subsequently to your other computers & devices.
  11. Then you may well have the wrong software. Evernote has never really been a good option for that. You can do it but it's not really what Evernote appears to be trying to be. As Gazumped noted above, they focus has been primarily on collection, storage and retrieval. There are lots of apps that will sync notes to Evernote. Depending on what platforms you use, one of them may well be a better choice. I'm hooked on my LiveScribe pen right now. I take the notes on paper and they get synced to Evernote (as handwritten notes). I can convert them to text if I need to. Best of both worlds for me. Honestly, if I can do such sophisticated things as "collection, storage and retrieval", what's the point of preventing me from taking simple notes in the same folders? That's cruel, isn't it? Well, Evernote doesn't have folders. Not sure what your point is here. You can take "simple notes". And they can be in the same notebook.
  12. Well, not true. OP has indicated he installed the desktop client on his computer. I am pretty sure anyone in the IT dept can get to files on the OP's computer. This is the same scenario as if a computer is lost/stolen. Anyone who is savvy enough (and if they are in the company's IT dept, I would surmise they are) can either view the files or quickly figure out how to. This is why it's recommended to put your local database into an encrypted container. As Gaz said... Having said all this, I would also say that if you're using a computer that is company owned, it's best to not put personal stuff on there, if you are concerned. After all, it is their computer, ya know???
  13. Yes...what Gaz said. More info here: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/20092-not-very-happy-right-now/?p=101095
  14. Please see post #6. It appears the iPad version now works similarly to the screen cap of the iPhone in that post.
  15. Please read post #20 (the one that is right before your post.)
  16. On the Windows client, it works as expected. https://www.evernote.com/shard/s137/sh/79ecb803-c9a4-42ed-8f39-04b9bdcb04df/e6c9bd0231791de8a8bc45926d39e4fa I would definitely say the web client not finding the exact phrase a BUG. And if the Mac version is not finding the exact phrase, that's a BUG, too and I would also say this is something that should be a high priority for EN to fix.
  17. Yes, it works fine (translate --> the way it is supposed to) on Windows but not the web client. Can't speak to the Mac client. Definitely a bug or feature regression.
  18. Are you using quotes? I don't know what you mean when you say " both "on" and "the" are removed from the string". This should return all notes that contain all three words (if you're not using quotes). If you're using quotes, it should return only notes that contain that exact phrase of all three words. This should only return notes that contain the exact phrase "day tree".
  19. 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.
  20. https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/63046-no-support-for-20-days-anyone-have-problems-like-this/
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
