  1. Which is data, ironically... Don't know whether that's a big use case for them in the context of the normal single-user Evernote accounts. Some setting *should* be up to the individual user (maybe most), even in a business environment. In the current system, with no explicit support for shared settings, an admin could determine what settings are governed by the registry, and distribute .reg files for users to install. But there's be no stopping users from overriding those settings, though. Just curious: which Evernote settings would you be interested in being common? That being said, there may be better support for onboarding new users in the Evernote for Business product (I don't know a lot about that). You might try asking in this forum: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/277-evernote-business/
  2. @gazumped has been around here for so long, he remembers when Evernote customers were asking for auto updated link titles on their clay tablets...
  3. Great tip, but I think you highlighted the printer, not the trash can. Though my printer does seem to act like a trash can, sometimes....
  4. Sorry to hear this, for your troubles of course, but also for that market segment. I may be an Evernote "fanboy", but competition is a good, thing and it's difficult for a single application to meet all of the needs of a broad spectrum of users. But thanks for leaving the warning.
  5. Works on Windows as well, except that the command is "Move Note to Trash".
  6. The URL is actually, in the API, called the "SourceURL", and is intended to be a URL for the note source, in particular, notqbly a web clip came from (http://dev.evernote.com/doc/reference/Types.html#Struct_NoteAttributes). Containing a single URL in this field is not just a Windows thing, btw.. I find the URL field to be incredibly useful (I do a lot of web clips for research-y type notes), and particularly useful in the case where a web clip fails, (as they do sometimes); usually the URL does get captured, and I can just go there and hand clip the content that I want (which is irritating). If I need multiple URLs in a note, I add them to the note body. Its presence in the note header doesn't bother me in general; I typically have a lot of that space filled with tags anyways (tags and notebook name take precedence over URL), and I am able to ignore it like the notes on my fridge: I only heed it if I need it.
  7. My so-called dashboards are pretty simple, but I did start using tables to do divisions to demarcate things that should be kept separate. This seems to work out better than horizontal rules for me, because I can then have horizontal divisions if need be, rather than only vertical divisions.
  8. In the "Classic" and beta web applications, drag/drop of an image from the Windows file explorer seems to work fine. Copy/paste from a Windows File Explorer window doesn't seem to work, but curiously, you can paste from the Windows Evernote screen clipper or the Windows image viewer. Kind of inconsistent there. In the web beta, you can use the "Insert..." menu at the right hand side of the editing panel.
  9. Which Evernote application? Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, web?
  10. The import folder @CalS references is the way to go to get separate notes for each PDF. I did try what you did with the latest prerelease ( (308781) Prerelease (CE Build ce-62.5.9981)), and it also concatenated the PDF titles, but it also added all of the PDFs to the note. The behavior you note -- just adding only one PDF -- would clearly be a bug. Adding them as separate notes would be a nice enhancement; maybe if you had Ctrl or Shift down when you dropped the PDF's it could do the separate notes thing, while retaining the current behavior (modulo not capturing all of the PDFs). I can see where both would be useful. So add it to the dictionary, already. Sheesh.
  11. ?? "Dashboard" is a common term: https://www.lexico.com/en/definition/dashboard. Your car has a dashboard. Other applications have dashboards that give you a quick overview of what's going on. It's not that difficult a concept to grasp. It is not a Mac vs. Windows thing. In Evernote, it's just a note; you can be as creative, or note in designing it (mine tend to be more prosaic and less flashy).
  12. Gosh no. We do deal with multi-gigabyte+ files sometimes for work, but not with a text editor. For the record, the .enex file that I tested against was only ~175 MB, child's play for NotePad++.
  13. Well, "modern" or not, some of the application options are stored in the registry, and some of them may be stored in the database; I could probably check the latter to see whether changes to one account affect changes on the second of my accounts, both of which can be active on the same machine. Hate to say it, but most of the user configurable values in the software that I work on are stored in the registry. Of course, you can export those and re-import them elsewhere, though you might get stuff that you wish you hadn't. Given that this is a 20+ year old program, I'm not going to feel too bad about it...
  14. A web search for "windows text editor very large files" turned up https://www.emeditor.com/, among other things...
  15. Yeah, seems to be broken for the "any: tag:x tag:y" case, in both the "Classic" editor and the beta.. Seems to work on the "any: x y" case, though.
  16. You could probably hack a copy of the .enex export file to remove all but the note that you want to restore. It's just a text file. Locate the note by searching on "<Title>blahblah" and copy all of the stuff from the opening <en-export...> ti its close </en-export> into a new text file. Copy the header information from the top of your archive into the text file and save is a a .enex file somewhere (like your desktop). Should import back in fine (I did try it). Basic format: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE en-export SYSTEM "http://xml.evernote.com/pub/evernote-export2.dtd"> <en-export><note> ... </note></en-export>
  17. From the Evernote System Limits page, Basic accounts can have up to 100,000 notes. I think you're safe there. I am not really a diary person, but for work, I keep a weekly journal. Every Monday morning, I duplicate the previous week's journal, clear out its entries, and change the dates for the individual days, and in the note title. Takes about 5 minutes. What do you mean by "go back a step"? Ctrl+Z/Undo? The Evernote Windows application supports this, for all account types (Basic, Plus, Premium). Which version are you using?
  18. Nice to haves for keyboarding mavens: An application-wide shortcut for toggling display of reminders in the views that support them (Snippet, Card, Thumbnail). This should expand or retract the reminder list at the top view lists. Ctrl+Alt+R anyone? Editor shortcuts to Add, Clear, Mark as Done, Add/Change Reminder Date. Anyone's guess which specific shortcut keys are available. Cheers!
  19. At the rate I'm going, I'll hit 1000 in about 800 years or so (~12 notebooks in 10 years in my personal account). Think they'll get around to raising the limit by then?
  20. Are you using the Windows, Mac, Android, iOS or web version of Evernote?
  21. Or you could reconsider how you're using notebooks in Evernote. I mainly use them for sharing sets of notes to other accounts, or for designating sets of notes that are to be designated as always available offline on my mobile device (Android); instead, I use tags to categorize my notes so that they're easily found. Of course, if you're determined to use many notebooks (or folders or whatever), then it may be true that a different note program would be better for you.
  22. Accepted, thank you. This is a fair request, but don't discount the answers you hear -- they're typically from users who have long experience with using Evernote and who help out a lot of people on these forums, for free, on a daily basis. They know their Evernote stuff and their advice is generally worth paying attention to. I think this is generally correct; you only want to manually sort -- via whatever means -- a small number of your note collection. But consider that using reminders to do essentially the same thing doesn't really cost a lot more effort, if any. You want to focus on a small number of notes, mark them as reminders -- they float to the top. You want to sort them manually, you can do that. When you're done with one, clear its reminder, and it's removed from the reminders list. That's how I use them, anyways. I think that if you give them a fair try, you might find that they are far from a "lame workaround". I'd much rather use reminders than use the retitling workaround, which I see as awkward and inefficient. YMMV, of course.
  23. Too small for my "OK, Boomer" eyes -- looks like an angel to me, actually until I zoom way in. :whatevs:
