  1. Obligatory link to the Evernote search grammar: https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php. Look at the section "Matching literal terms", which describes how punctuation is used to split text, but is not used in matching text.
  2. Note to OP: it's better to separate out separate requests into separate posts (to make it better for tabulating votes, topic merging and other related activities), and, if a request is specific to one particular OS/platform (i.e., Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, or web) dependent post them in the relevant OS specific request forums.
  3. Unfortunately, this is a bad, or at least misguided feature in the Windows client, for a several reasons: It's a global setting: you cannot choose to make a search be a subtag search if the option is off, and you cannot choose to make a search be an exact (i.e., no subtags) if it's on The search semantics (i.e., results you get) when the option is on will not match the results in any other client, and also do not match the documented search language (https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php). So your saved searches may not work the same on non-Windows cients.
  4. Sigh. Had this discussion with someone else recently. Uniqueness of tag names does not make the Evernote tag tree any less hierarchical than if duplicate tag names were allowed. It's still a hierarchy, much as say, a company org chart that organizes employees into a hierarchy is still, yes, a hierarchy. Splitting hairs a bit, but the tag tree is not a "half-hierarchy". That being said, sure, it might be convenient to have multiple instances of the same tag name in the tag tree, but what are the implications? Is tag "A" in one part of the tree the same tag as tag "A" in another part of the
  5. In the context of this forum discussion, you'd also have too many notes pinned to the top of your list: pick your poison. This really indicates a different problem: one of managing many todos. In the world of todo management, there are many different ways. Note that Evernote is not intended to be an all-powerful todo management system or implement any particular methodology, though it works fine as a lightweight todo application. Myself, I try to use reminders sparingly, going by the "7 plus or minus 2" rule (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Magical_Number_Seven,_Plus_or_Minus_Two); bas
  6. Evernote on Linux is either on the web, or via a 3rd party Evernote client, of which there's at least one: https://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/11/evernote-linux-client-nixnote2-forked.html
  7. See https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005237-How-does-sync-work-within-Evernote- : if Evernote has detected any conflicting changes, then they should appear in a special notebook. In the case you cite (you're not seeing changes from mobile that don't appear in a different Evernote application, that's not necessarily a conflicting change (which is a note being edited in two separate places); it could however be a bug.
  8. In the version I'm using, 8.12.4, I can select a notebook from the Notebooks list in the slideout panel, and that shows me all of the notes in that notebook. If I then tap on the Search magnifying glass, search terms entered there only apply to the scope of the current notebook, at least as far as I can tell. Does that not work for you?
  9. Seeing as now "semantics" means meaning, I usually think of semantics as actually being somewhat important. Huh -- I've done a lot of work with hierarchies over the years as a user and a developer, and there is no "by definition" with respect to node names in a tree structure. They can be unique, or allow duplicates. It's really up to the intended usage, and the implementer. I couldn't find any definition of tree structure that forbids unique node names -- if you can reference one, I'd like to see it. As far as I can tell, it has nothing to do with "global"-ness of nodes (whatever that
  10. Receipts come in all sizes. How about just taking photos of your receipts?
  11. I don't access on iOS at all, but on my Android device, in Chrome, to get to the Devices page, I went to the link that @Scott T. provided (Devices page), signed in, and it took me straight there. To access the web version of Evernote on Android, I go to evernote.com, and use a Chrome menu setting to open the desktop site, and there's the Evernote web application, in all its glory, It's a bit painful to use on a small device like a phone as it doesn't adapt to the smaller screen size, leading to lots of scrolling around, but it does work after a fashion, and can be useful in a pinch. I'm
  12. Sure it's hierarchical -- there's nothing in the definition of hierarchy (see e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hierarchy) that dictates that names of items need be or need not be unique. Evernote's version just allows you to do hierarchical organization of your tag names. File systems are not the only hierarchies -- organizations of people can also be hierarchies, and that's pretty much analogous to Evernote's hierarchy. I have mixed feelings about the tag structure allowing tag names to appear at different places in the hierarchy, but the way I use Evernote doesn't depend on the hiera
  13. Except for the fact that that the moderators tend to find common requests and merge them. That being said, basically *all* feature requests are in the same boat: vote count is relative to other vote counts, not number of forum-goers or total number of Evernote users. And that's not to mention the other sources of requests (twitter, tech support, etc.). Companies like Evernote already know that they don't get %100 participation from their users, and make adjustments. Nice bunch of assumptions there., not adding up to much concrete, I'm sorry to say. Well, maybe, but it's not rea
  14. Web browser doesn't count as a device, even if it's on your mobile device. Devices are the native -- meaning Windows, Mac, Android and iOS applications. In particular, it's the native Android and iOS applications on which cached notes are cleared when you change users. The web version does things differently. More info: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/218558068-Understanding-the-device-limit
  15. Seeing as how this is a Windows-specific subforum, you'll want to go over to https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/218-evernote-for-mac/ and see whether there's an existing request for the same functionality and if not, add one yourself.
  16. TIFF format is generally meant to be lossless, but is still losslessly compressible, and that's supported in the format. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TIFF#TIFF_Compression_Tag Different question is whether scanners can do compression or not.
  17. Accessing Scott's link works on Chrome on my Android device.
  18. A standard workarounds: use reminders. Reminders work well with Snippet view in Windows, in that reminder notes titles & reminder dates are kept in a separate list at the top of the snippet list, so they're easily accessible (the reminder list can also be closed up to give you hack vertical space in the snippet view). The reminder list is independently sortable, and can also be set up a user-sortable (you drag items where you want them to go). I use reminders a lot for exactly this purpose. The basics: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208314338-How-to-use-reminders. You can
  19. The only thing that I can suggest (not owning a scanner myself) is to check whether your you can configure your scanner to use TIFF's native compression (it's still lossless) so that you get smaller files. Good luck.
  20. Well, I'll accept 'us' as being past & present Evernote folks -- heck, you still have the scars, er, tattoo, right? Anyways, yeah, it was always clear that the order came from Windows, but I seem to remember it as pretty reliable (vs. Mac at the time). I seem to recall that Windows would return things in the order that you selected them if you selected one-by-one (via Ctrl+Click), but can't remember anything about order of drag selects. It may depend on whether you drag select up or down (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/6128962/how-do-i-maintain-the-file-order-in-windows-explore
  21. I appreciate the clarification; it used to be the case that Evernote staff did read everything here, per commends by Dave Engberg, but his tenure is long over, and the forums have a lot more traffic nowadays, so it's understandable. I'll keep that in mind in the future. Thanks.
  22. Plus accounts no no longer exist, except for folks who are grandfathered in. I.e., they're pretty much at a dead end. See the FAQ. I wouldn't expect them to increase the allocation limits for Plus. Sounds like your use case is more geared towards a Premium level.Is it possible to compress the TIFF files to save space?
  23. As far as I understand it, the rule was, and continues to be that Evernote staff read Every post. @Shane D.??
  24. I have two Evernote accounts, a premium account one personal use and basic account for work. I work at home sometimes and at the office other times. I use the Windows and Android Evernote applications (and the web app sometimes, too). At home on my Windows desktop, I can have both accounts open at the same time. At work, I don't want most of my personal notes on my work machine, so I solve this a different way: I share certain notebooks to my work account, and don't share the others. This lets me see a subset of my personal account with my work account, without needing to switch. This generall
  25. A rare one. Red letter day for me. I'll take it, even if it's due to your cold!
