  1. Beyond what @gazumped said, you can have multiple accounts on the same computer, in the same Windows logon. They can be open at the same time, in different Evernote instances, and the note databases (.exb files) are kept separate. For the web clipper, you'll have to make sure that the correct account is signed in when using it; you should be able to sign out and sign in as a different user, and the clipped notes will go to the correct account. Screen clipping and other operations that use global hotkeys will go to one account (not sure how this works), but you can perform the same operations for secondary logged-in accounts by right-clicking on the Evernote icon in the notification area and selecting the secondary account you wish to operate on. I haven't used this a lot (I tend to use shared notebooks between my two accounts), but it seems to work fine.
  2. There is no workaround to ensuring that a notebook in the left panel is made visible in the left panel is it's used in a search. I'll move this to a feature request forum.
  3. I was hoping that adding the -tag:london would override the implied inclusion of a tag search that a search term of "london" gives (and ditto for -intitle:london"), but as I said, I didn't have time to generate a test set of notes to try out my assumption, so my bad. In any case, this should not be just a Windows feature, as it is in the search grammar (http://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php), explicitly (or at least for the a simple search on "london"): The question of whether "tag:london" is an "advanced search modifier" includes "tag:" or "-tag:" terms is open, since "advanced search modifier" doesn't appear anywhere else in the search grammar documentation. That being said, I'm guessing that it refers only to the scope modifiers in the previous section, namely "notebook:" and "any:" (and maybe "stack:", though that doesn't appear in the search grammar, but does work in the Widows client at leat). Anyways, sorry for the confusion. It would be nice to be able to be explicit about searching for text terms but not in tags or titles, maybe something like "text:london" or something like that.
  4. This search would be: tag:london -london -intitle:london This would be a different search, right? Should be: london intitle:london -tag:london I'd have to contrive some test data to try these out, need some time for that...

    Evernote for Windows 6.16 beta 2

    Just curious as to what happens if you duplicate the note; does the duplicate have the same condition? Couldn't see this in 6.16.1, I'll try it again when I get around to the latest update.

    Changing View Layout in Windows App

    You're welcome!

    Changing View Layout in Windows App

    The way to do this has changed a bit, in the 6.16 betas, which I'm using currently, but basically in the search panel (whee you type in a search), you're looking for an icon that gives you view options; I think it's in the upper left hand corner of the search panel. open it, and select "Top List". The hotkey for this is Ctrl+F7.
  8. In the Windows Evernote client, you can try pasting it without formatting (Ctrl_Shift+V) into a note.

    Evernote for Windows 6.16 beta 2

    To continue a subtopic from the previous beta's topic: it does look like styles are synced, as I added my work account to my home computer, and the styles came across. No help for stack styling (or its lack thereof), though...

    Basic calculation in Tables

    Once again, it's not much harder to expose advanced calculations then it is to expose the easier ones. The hard part is exposing the cell/range referencing so that it's reasonable for users to make their own formulas. You could assume A1, B2, etc. like everyone else, but that's not currently exposed to the user at it is in a true spreadsheet. So now you have to accept some UI unclarity, or redesign tables to accommodate. And gee, it sure would be nice to reference a different table in the same note (or in a different note, whee!) but tables don't have names at this time. Sort that out, and math/formulas are pretty easy, though you need to watch out for circular references, etc. But it's the first step that's harder, and that's the basis for everything else. Well, after that, I suppose formatting would be necessary, though you can expose that with functions, I suppose. I'm not saying it wouldn't be cool / useful, mind. Your suggestion to link to a Google sheet is good, or you could embed an Excel (or whatever) spreadsheet right in a note. Right now, that's the only way...
  11. Sure, I understand. I read the discussion. I would take issue with the claim that "there are two categories of people...", as I do with those types of statements in general: life is often more of a spectrum, and less either-or; it's a gross over-simplification. "There are two types of people: those who believe in black-and-white, and those who believe in spectra." Yada-yada. But that's beside the point. It's not a matter of people who work on projects vs those that don't; as I said earlier; there are a lot of people who work on projects large and small in Evernote who really, really don't need nested notebooks, even though they understand hierarchical structures in great detail, and use them elsewhere. But to claim that there's some causal connection between working on projects and understanding hierarchies just seems naive. So I'll disclaim that bit. I will point out that there is no "best" solution for everyone, because, as you know, everyone is not the same (and maybe that's an argument in favor of adding nested notebooks; a way to rope in people who can't grok tags). Nevertheless, People do seem to successfully work on projects in Evernote with what's at hand. So the problem is that some Evernote users want nested notebooks, and Evernote doesn't have them. And it's totally valid to request them. I'm not here to dissuade you from that, though pretty much all of the the pros/cons around that have been discussed pretty thoroughly here. Let me repeat: you're not wrong to ask for it.. But you can't change Evernote, and neither can I, and since Evernote doesn't provide nested notebooks, what then? The options are to use Evernote or to use something else. I'm not here to convince to do one or the other; I have no stake in your decision. My feeling is that we should use tools that work for us. If you use Evernote, and you're having trouble using it, I will try to help you if I can. Since you posed a question about how to handle a certain fuzzy, hypothetical, underspecified scenario, I assumed that you were sincere in trying to find the answer, or at least an approach, and I'd be happy to try to help (though you'd need to be more specific about what you're trying to do). If you're more interested in making a point rather than being helped, and making more arguments about why nested notebooks are needed, that's fine too, and again, I'll be just as happy to withdraw. You're just trying to solve a problem with Evernote, as are we all.
  12. Never seen this, and I clip fairly often. Sorry.
  13. First, your question presupposes that there are levels of nesting associated with a project that are required for finding things. What do they represent? If your question isn't just rhetorical or hypothetical, then more information would be needed as to what the levels entail. Hierarchy might not be necessary for your use case, despite your assumption that it is. For me, the first step would be to create a project tag, and apply it to the 50+ notes. If there wasn't one already, I'd create a project summary as well; that would be my starting point into the project. So right there, you can now easily filter your note database down to that set of notes, across any notebook structure you care to construct; one likely possibility is that you' dedicate a single notebook to the project. That would make sharing with other users easier. I think you may have a mistaken assumption here: Selecting a tag doesn't automatically show you all of the notes that have tags that are children of the original tag, unless they also have the original tag (note that the Windows Evernote client _does_ allow you do do this as an option, but I thought that it was awkwardly implemented, and not particularly useful to me).Again, more information would be required before I would say whether doing that was a good idea or not. Of course, if you're just setting up a straw man here, rather trying to work better in Evernote as it is today...
  14. Is this for a particular Evernote client? E.g., Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, web?
