  1. Hey, I'd forgotten about this post. Not really much to do with Evernote, as I track my rides using an Excel spreadsheet (it's currently up to 15 years worth, hopefully starting on year 16 shortly). Time to start dropping that winter weight; Planet Fitness is fine for what it is, but it's not the same as getting out on a real bike. 5 pounds is a reasonable goal for me this year, 10 pounds is definitely do-able with diet diligence &regular rides. Sadly, commuting is no longer an option, which would really help.

    Just a terminology clarification (at least when I talk about them!). In EN, F9 is an "accelerator". Cortana's F9 is a "hotkey". The difference is an accelerator will only work when an application has focus. A hotkey is a system wide hook that works no matter who has focus - as such, the app who registers first wins - and all others lose. It's a constant battle! (EN does have some hotkeys - these are configurable in the Options dialog. Accelerators are not configurable.)

    It's astounding to me that they'd choose a plain F-key as a hotkey. F9 for me is, and forever will be, Set Breakpoint. I'm sure it has a other long-running meanings in other applications. Win+<whatever>, OK, but not F-keys, unless there's a way to modify them.

    Plus it creates an ANY search and the results can't be easily winnowed.  Only useful if the set you want is notes tagged within the parent/child hierarchy.

    That too. But only if you put a tag that has children into your search. Less of a problem for me because I don't maintain elaborate tag hierarchies. My tag organization methodology is otherwise known as "shoeboxing". Or maybe "laundrypiling"...

  4. Windows client: ensure that the Note History buttons (Left+right arrows: < >) are installed on your toolbar. Move the mouse button to the left arrow, press the left mouse button down and hold. Note history list, just like in the browser (Chrome anyways).

     Thanks for this report. Please try these steps to fix this issue: 

    1.  Select File > Exit to close Evernote
    2.  Open the task manager to confirm Evernote is not running as a background process (select "Evernote and End task")
    3.  Open 'regedit' (Windows key + R, then type regedit)
    4. Expand the HKEY_CURRENT_USER folder
    5.  Expand the "Software" folder
    6.  Expand the Evernote Folder
    7. Click on the second "Evernote folder" so that a list of Values displays on the right
    8.  Right-Click "EnableHardwareAcceleration"
    9.  Select "Modify"
    10.  Set Hexidecimal Value to "0"
    11.  Select File>Exit to exit the Registry Editor
    12. Reopen Evernote

    Please let me know if the issue continues after completing the steps above. Thanks!


    Or you could have just used:

    Use the Options dialog and disable hardware acceleration. There's no need to directly edit the registry for that anymore.

    If I tagged something as tiger, I'd also want it tagged as animal and also as cat because a tiger is always a cat and always an animal. That seems like a lot of work and I'd definitely forget to do it when creating a new note. Tagging it as "animal.cat.tiger" would fix that, except that tiger can have more than one parent.

    In a pure hierarchy, an item has at most one parent, classification wise. Tags in Evernote have that property. What you're trying to do, however, is mashup multiple hierarchies into one, and Evernote can't do that.. In this case, you can have your animal hierarchy ("animal"->"cat"->"tiger" or "animal.cat.tiger"), which is a natural inheritance tree (a cat is-a animal, a tiger is-a cat, etc.) in terms of a classical Linnaean classification, but endangered vs. non-endangered is a purely transitory classification (a species may go on of off the endangered list, e.g.). I's good practice to keep that  categorization separate from whatever animal classification scheme you use.

    Incidentally, you're on Windows, you can implement a sort of hierarchical search using  the tag hierarchy (i.e. "animal"->"cat"->"tiger") and the setting Tools / Options / Navigation / "Automatically select child tags". If this is enabled, and you search on, say, the tag 'cat' (tag:cat), then all of the subtags of 'cat' will be added to the search, so that you get notes tagged with "tiger' automatically. I don't find it useful, because it's a global setting (you cannot apply it to searches ad hoc), but others might.

    It's possible that this highlighting is simply no longer a feature in the Windows program.

    No, it's still there -- in the latest, greatest Windows beta anyways -- but seems unpredictable/unstable. I've see it appearing, appearing and then flashing off, and not appearing. If it appears, and you switch notes, it may disappear eventually, and then not come back. Maybe there's a timer that governs this, or maybe there's some other condition that turns it off. It's unpredictable, but I've definitely seen the highlighting happen.

    Obviously I'm new here and don't have my sea legs under me yet.  I'm happy someone has already raised the issue about .webp files. I don't know how to move this topic to the right place. If someone can do it, or better still, show me how to do it, it would be much appreciated.

    Actually, I can just merge it to the existing topic, and you can then add your vote there (in addition to having your supporting posts as well).

    Edit: merged

  9. intitle: (and Evernote search in general) doesn't do searches that match inside of a string of non-blabk characters, so that's the reason that 'selcgros' cannot be found. If 'selgros' is a common part of note titles in your workflow, a workaround would be to have a 'selgros' tag and apply it as needed.I know, but search improvements like infix matching have been made, but Evernote hasn't implemented it so far.

    As a side note, notes that contain PDF files can be found using: resource:application/pdf

  10. Mitigating factor in this case is that this is a beta release, so fortunately the affected number of users should be relatively small. In my case, I had avoided the earlier beta 3, and the update to the new beta 3 from beta 2 went smoothly, which I think is expected, since there's no downgrade of the CEF componentry. .

    Except: installs (or the updating step in the install) will halt if you just happen to be at a breakpoint in the Visual Studio debugger; probably not  in the test suite... :)  But no problem, just F5 to Continue, and it's all swell...

    I tried this and it gave me an extra $10 credit. I haven't set up billing yet, so if you haven't got your $5 maybe they don't do it unless I covert to a paying customer? Which I will likely do. Thanks.!

    Folks, if you want to discuss relative merits of of Notion or other Evernote competitors, that's probably fine for the forums. If you want to get into the business of recruiting others for other competitors, passing Notion credits around, etc., then you should probably continue via PM.

  12. One curious thing: I set the default font to Segoe UI 10, and created a new note, then typed some text into the note ("Segoe UI 10", how original). OK, fine -- looks like the same in MS Word. Then I copied that text, hit a newline and pasted it. With Segoe UI/10 showing for font parameters, I then selected the new text, and re-selected "10" from the font size dropdown, and the selected text, while still looking like the original, spread out just a little, as if the spacing between characters increased a tiny bit, maybe by a pixel. On the other hand, it didn't change if I re-selected the "Segoe UI" font. So I'd guess that the font that's created by default and the font that's specified when you change font size isn't created with exactly the same parameters as the default font is.

    I would like to request the login link for evernote to be placed at the top of the home page, as opposed to the bottom of the page.

    Are you talking about the evernote.com home page? I see the login link at the top of the page. A screen cap of what you're seeing might help.

    Alternatively you can just save a bookmark for the actual login link target: https://www.evernote.com/Login.action

    Recommendation: Downgrade to Beta2. Seriously. (We're working on rolling back all the CEF changes that went into Beta3. I'll need a substance abuse program when this is done.)

    Hopefully it's nothing worse that espresso overload. (I was smartlucky and hadn't updated to Beta 3 yet)

    We do have the automatic update set at 0% - but if you manually check, you'll see it. A replacement for that beta is coming "real soon".

    Good luck -- hope that the rollback goes better and everyone's heart rates can drop back. Working under pressure isn't fun, it's worse when it entails undoing something that didn't work. See the scars here? And here? Oh, and over there?
