  1. If you want this, you need to make what Evernote calls "In-App Note Links". This is all a little confusing as these are also -- I think -- referred to as "internal links". In any case, these are the "evernote:///view/..." links. In the Windows client, select the note you want, and press Ctrl+Alt+L to create one of these. You can use these to jump from note to note inside the Evernote Windows application, or open a note in the Evernote Windows application. Adding to the confusion, if you right-click on a note in the note list, and select the "Copy Internal Link Ctrl+Alt+L", it actually creates a regular note link of the form "https://www.evernote.com/shard/[shardId]/nl/[userId]/[noteGuid]/", which is not the same as what s produced using Ctrl+Alt+L.

    Can I Export a Group of Notes to Excel?

    Hey, that's a nice tip. +1 for list views. You can also just select the rows you want, doesn't need to be all of them. Stores it on the clipboard as both text and an HTML table. Excel uses the HTML clip, I'd be pretty sure.

    Can I Export a Group of Notes to Excel?

    Evernote doesn't support export to Excel format in any of the Evernote clients (Windows, Mac, etc.) that I am aware of.

    Evernote for Windows 6.17 beta 3

    ?? Syncing isn't a CPU-bound process, or at least it shouldn't be. It should be I/O bound, and # of CPUs shouldn't matter a heck f a lot, if at all. Is Task Manager/Process Monitor/whatever showing a lot of CPU activity when you sync? Are multiple cores involved? I guess you might have things threaded so that you can do any required format conversions as synced notes are processed, but that's going to be a lot faster than the disk and network IO required to do the actual sync and storing operations. Am I missing something? I'll have to check this scenario at home, where I can experiment with my two accounts safely.
  5. Totally understand -- I usually wait a couple of days before I install the betas, just to make sure no bad bugs come along with it.
  6. There is, but you'll get more specific advice if you specify whether you're using Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, or the web client....
  7. Windows? Mac? Android? iOS? Web?
  8. I've long considered Evernote to be a note management analog to Gmail -- just the overall search / organization stuff seems pretty similar. Gmail is of course a web-only thing, so that might make an web-only version of Evernote at least a thinkable option (though not a trivial one). And one thing about Gmail is this: you can download your emails to a local machine. If Evernote were to go to a web-only client -- and I have no means of gauging whether they will or not -- I'd hope and expect that they'd offer a download option as well.

    New Web App Comments

    Sure, in this subforum (https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/235-web-client/) is fine
  10. From the release notes of the beta (note the boldfaced item under "Fixed":: Maybe that's what you're seeing? At least I can't seem to reproduce your problem in this version.

    convert .ENB file?

    Found an old topic here that might be of interest:
  12. Sorry, no clue then, unless you did something with, say, stacks or tags or something. The search language doesn't support any notion of shared notebooks, and you can only specify a single notebook or stack in a search query, and you can't filter out notebooks (i.e., no -notebook:MyNotebook terms). There's a "sharedate" attribute you can search agains (e.g. sharedate:*), but that's only set on individually shared notes, not on notes in shared notebooks.
  13. Not as far as I know. I don't recall that option myself.Was it a search query option? A setting?
  14. Not necessarily. As far as I know, they already use cross-platform of sorts: Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF), for note rendering and editing interactions, wrapped up in native applications. They may just be implying a better, or at least tighter, process to coordinate fixes and new features across the various platforms. They've been loosely coupled historically, aside from required changes forced by changes to their SDK (which all Evernote applications use).. Porting to an entirely new system would be a surprising strategy to try and gain stability. It just doesn't just work automatically, and it's not an overnight switch-over. We'll see, but I doubt that that's what they're doing. That being said, I'm not privy to their internal plans, and cross-platform isn't really what I do (mainly Windows-based GIS analysis and visualization) so I'm clearly no expert in that area. But swapping over to a new underlying framework is never as clean as one hopes, and not to be taken lightly. On the other hand, it could happen. Evernote for Windows, which I use most of the time, is pretty rich, though I use it pretty simply, and though I could probably work with a simpler UI if it takes awhile to roll out an Electron (or whatever) based system. The memory load doesn't bother me as much, not with Visual Studio weighing in at 1GB+, and Chrome being what it is,;it's mainly functionality. But there are a lot of people who absolutely depend on the way the Windows (and I expect Mac and the other platforms); one little weak/regression/change and some segment of users goes nuts. That's not gonna be great, optics-wise. I can only imagine what the Mac side of things would look like. Fortunately for Evernote, none of the competitors out there are perfect
  15. Aside from these, there are also.... Methodologies... Many Methodologies.... GTD Bullet Journal Eisenhower matrix et cetera, et cetera, et cetera Some of these have been adapted to Evernote --> try web searches for "evernote GTD", "evernote bullet journal", "evernote eisenhower matrix" I use a simpler system, mainly a weekly note (based on a template of course; it's all one big table), where I have separate list important, immediate tasks, tasks waiting on input from someone else, and "future" tasks that I need to think about before I actually do anything on them, plus a day calendar for journalling on what I've worked on that week plus appointments and meetings (few, thankfully), plus of course a list of tasks accomplished (mainly as prep for a weekly meeting). I can tie tasks from our bug database in directly (they're just web links) or for more complicated items, I can make a separate note for capturing debug results, code, screen caps, kinks to research etc, and use note links to tie those into the weekly note. And then these get tied into a master yearly calendar note. It's pretty simple, and I like it that way. Every Monday morning, first thing: duplicate the old week's note, change the dates (including reminder due date) on the new note, clear out the daily entries and any old unreported completed tasks, mark last week's note as complete, and store it into a "Journal" notebook. 10 minutes? 15, tops?
  16. A much-requested feature. Please go here and add your upvote:

    Notebook Pages?

    Tags certainly can be used to "structure" your notes, but it's a different flavor of structuring. Pure folder/tree systems are predicated on the idea that an object has exactly one place to live in the hierarchy. Tagging systems recognize the fact that often objects it more than one category (think books: historical romance, for example). There are many ways to approach this, but I think about it as follows. In your case, a project might merit a tag, (e.g. "My Project") and also a meeting might merit its own tag (e.g., "Meeting"). There might be other tags to describe general project categories: "Report", "Specification", "Requirements", "Research", etc. etc. Apply as needed. So now you have another project "My Other Project"; you can re-use all of those other tags with your new project. You can isolate on all projects, using their project name tag, or all meetings, etc., etc.

    Notebook Pages?

    I would track meetings using tags, and possibly title information.

    FR: Templates to include default Tags

    I just create my own templates, save them in a specific notebook, and Copy/Duplicate them as needed. Tags in the template note come along for the ride.

    Taking this as a feature request for the Window Evernote application...

    Notebook Pages?

    A notebook contains notes. There are no pages in Evernote.

    Creating a Stack within a Stack

    You should join the chorus of folks who've already asked for this here (from the General Feature Requests subforum): Add your upvote at the top of the topic, and your own discussion if you desire, though it's been discussed pretty thoroughly already. Some folks just use other methods of organization...
  23. You are allowed to change reminder time. If your initial estimate of a task's completion time was incorrect, then you should adjust accordingly.
  24. I know of no workarounds for what you are seeking. Sounds like a feature request to me. If you want me to move this topic to a feature request forum, I can do that.

    High CPU when idling??

    For laptop users, it's a battery drain, is about all I can come up with.
