  1. In additions to @CalS's correct info, two links to more detailed documentation: How to use Evernote's advanced search grammar: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313828-How-to-use-Evernote-s-advanced-search-syntax Evernote search grammar (technical): https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php
  2. No problem -- these days I'm blaming folks' testiness here (and everywhere) it on COVID-19! I think we'd all like more feedback on feature requests from Evernote staffers.
  3. OK, a couple of things going on here. First, I think that everyone acknowledges that this is a valid & reasonable request; indeed,some of the regular responders here may have actually upvoted it. Second, though, is what to do about it the current situation. We users cannot change the code, but sometimes workarounds are available, and since this topic is very long, sometimes those workarounds get "trotted out" a number of times. Suggesting workarounds is not necessarily arguing against the request, or somehow invalidating it. In this case, there are some things a user can do on their own: using separate OS user accounts, and/or separate Evernote accounts. More work? Yep, but "batteries included". Or in some situations (leaving your desk to go get a cup of coffee, mentioned elsewhere), the simple solution is to lock your computer while you're away: in Windows, that's just a Ctrl+L and your Windows account is now locked; no logging out required. We're all Evernote users here, and we all want Evernote to improve, and I'd guess that most of us want Evernote users to be able to use Evernote better. That's why I spend my time here, anyways...
  4. I use the two-account solution as mentioned. My personal account is premium, and my work account is free. I share several notebooks from my personal to my work account, because they're generally applicable to any company I'd be working for (I'd just get another free account if I switched jobs again), and they're synced automatically.. Mostly works fine, At home, because I have a premium account, I can have both accounts loaded, synced, and active at the same time, so sharing from my work account to my personal account isn't really necessary (though it's nice-to-have if I need something for work from my phone). That's really handy for working at home, which is every day these days.
  5. You mean like this? As @PinkElephant says, there are other ways to do it yourself. The option above effectively does that...
  6. These five Global Shortcut keys have defaults, but you can change them to fit whatever works best for you. There are a large number of local shortcut keys, and speaking from some experience, it can be difficult to find perfect usability for all users in choice of shortcut key. Something that "shortens learning curve" for you may lengthen lengthen learning curve for me, and vice-versa. On the whole, with many 10's of shortcuts available, I'd guess that any so-called leaning curve among the non-standard ones (i.e. excluding Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, and the like) would be immeasurable. In fact, I'd guess that most users don't use all of the shortcut keys, so it's not even an issue for most. Short form: difficulty in measuring a difference for a seemingly small subset of the users = "small bang for big bug", i.e., low priority. Particularly when the user can change the global hotkeys. BTW, "Move Note" is Alt+Shift+M, not Ctrl+Shift+M (Ctrl+Shift+M is "decrease indentation". That's one that I use a lot, along with its friend Ctrl+M "increase indentation)". Note that Alt+Shift+M is a*lot* closer to the default key set than Ctrl+Shift+M...
  7. Sometimes I ask, often not. My experience is that many users don't really notice or care where they're posting in the forums, so if it's obvious and unambiguous, I'll just move it. If not, I'll ask. In general, my theory is that a post in in its proper place is more likely to be seen by someone who can comment on it with some expertise (especially Evernote staffers). Maybe that's influenced by my own habits: I only travel through forums that relate to my Evernote usage: general stuff, Windows, Android, and web applications, and the web clipper. No Mac, no iOS, because I know relatively little about those environments / applications.
  8. Your notes are not showing up for anyone but you. The web clipper can augment a Google search (dunno about other search engines) with results from your notebooks, but only when you're the one doing the searching, and only if it's enabled in the web clipper options. The relevant web clipper option is "Show Evernote content related to my web searches":
  9. This is not true in the Windows client, from what I can see. If you click on an image, then you'll get a blue outline witha resize handle in the lower right-hand corner: Tug on the blue square, and the image will resize. As far as I can tell, you cannot make the image larger than its actual dimensions, but you can certainly scale it to display at a smaller size: the image itself does not change, just the scale at which it's shown. .
  10. Tags can be used across notebooks, and are an effective way to group related notes, wherever they are. One other option: if you have a main note, you might want to turn it into a "table of contents" note by using note links to directly link to other, related notes. I use a combination of tags and note links myself.
  11. Or someone could just move it there. I'd be surprised if you couldn't do it yourself, Dave. I think that your level is high enough. Try it. If it doesn't work, then I or any number of other folks can do it.
  12. I am able to copy an image from Evernote direct into a Facebook post, using the Windows Evernote client and Facebook on Chrome. Please specify your OS and browser.
  13. You'll need to be more specific. Windows version? Mac? Android? iOS? Web? A screen cap would be nice.
  14. And that's exactly what the highlighter changes in the web beta allows you to do...
  15. For the web, this seems to be not that hard. Go to Evernote in your web browser. Do the search that you want, and make sure that it's giving you what you think it should. At that point, copy the web link in your browser address control. Save it as a bookmark, or pug it into your opening page address. Seems to be worth a try...
  16. The simple fact of the matter is that all notes in Evernote are stored in the ENML format (https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/enml.php). I created a very simple note, one line of text, and exported it to an Evernote export file. The result: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE en-export SYSTEM "http://xml.evernote.com/pub/evernote-export2.dtd"> <en-export export-date="20200420T121401Z" application="Evernote/Windows" version="6.x"> <note><title>Test Note</title><content><![CDATA[<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE en-note SYSTEM "http://xml.evernote.com/pub/enml2.dtd" ><en-note><div>very simple note<br/></div></en-note> ]]></content><created>20200407T123137Z</created><note-attributes><source>desktop.win</source><source-application>evernote.win32</source-application></note-attributes></note></en-export> You'll notice that the <en-note> tag discussed in the article is wrapped up in some XML stuff that Evernote needs in its export files. but the en-note bit is pretty simple: <en-note><div>very simple note<br/></div></en-note> No fonts, sizes, etc. The only markup is the <br> and the <div> elements. The <div> bit is described in the section: Representing plaintext notes. The markup is required because he various Evernote editors are not text editors, they're essentially HTML editors. The normal CR/LF (or whatever your OS prefers) for line endings are just whitespace to HTML; you need markup to give you line endings. So as you can see, Evernote cannot really store plaintext notes; it can only represent them. OK, actually you can store plaintext notes in Evernote, but only as attachments, which I'd guess isn't quite what you want. Oh yeah, just for fun, I round-tripped this note up to my Android phone, made a simple edit, and synced it back. No font-y markup was added. This appears to be about as close to a plain text note as you're going to get in Evernote.
  17. I'd start here: https://evernote.com/betaprogram
  18. Just merged an identical request to this topic, wherein I talked about how the developers might go about getting started with this (https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/112314-basic-calculation-in-tables/#comment-560544), it's not so much that simple summing is difficult, it's a fair amount of setup that needs to take place before the simple summing can come into play...
  19. To clarify: it appears that there are at least three Evernote web versions out there (maybe 4, if you've been a user for long enough). In order of newest to oldest: "Beta Editor" : the is the "new classic" Evernote with a new, "beta" editor: You can switch between "new" and "classic" editors from a a control on the note editor (rather than needing to go to your account settings page), Note that only the note editor window refreshes when you switch between "Beta editor" and "classic editor"; the framework otherwise appears to be the same. "New Classic" : this is that "classic" edition of the "new " version: expanded sidebar *white on black), no reminders, tag available in a panel that takes over the note list and note display. You can switch to a beta version of the note editor (Beta editor) from a control on the bottom right of the note display. "Previous" : Completely different framework from the "new classic" and "new beta" versions (and also different from the old "classic" version below). minimal sidebar (no text, notebooks and tags available via slide-out control), reminders list. You have to access this from your Account settings. The original (or legacy) "Classic" version : older, with an expanded sidebar (black on light gray) showing nested notebooks, and a reminders list above the note list. A lot more like the desktop versions. Only older users are grandfathered into this version, I believe; and you can only get there from your Account settings, and only then if you have the "Previous" version active. Clarified now?
  20. An important rule is this: don't put personal stuff on shared computers. And you don't need to in this case. If you want things to be private, make yourself a personal account, that resides on your own personal computer..If it contains notes that relate to embarrassing things, put them into separate notebooks, and don't share those notebooks. Innocuous notebooks/notes can then be shared with an another account without "leaking" the embarrassing tags. Alternately, you have control over your tag names, and you don't have to use literal names like "jihad". If you want to tag a note as Islamic jihad related, use a tag like "IJ", which isn't so obvious, or anything else, really, like "Prune" or "Mosquito" or "XYZZY" or whatever. But you still run the risk of pulling up embarassing content. Hiding tags just seems like a mechanism that' would be awkward to implement (you still want to search/filter using embarrassing tags) -- now you need a mechanism to enable them, and you still need to remember to turn it on/off as required. Seems really awkward and not foolproof. Separate accounts is a bit awkward, too, but it gives you control, and it's already built into Evernote. I've used separate accounts for years: I share my personal software development library to my work account, and a couple of other notebooks, but private stuff stays private on my personal machine.
  21. Since you ask, my guess would be "not a lot". I typically move notes around to other notebooks in the main window, where I can drag/drop if I want, or select from the note's Notebook dropdown, and in particular, do bulk moves via multi-select. Move to new notebook, followed by an immediate close window? Vanishingly rare, in my case. And if that ever happened to me: change notebook, and the window closed, I would think that that was really, really surprising and I doubt that I'd be alone. So then there's be a need to add a new Option for this, and all of the usual stuff that goes along with it, not including the fact that the Windows client will likely be taken over the new one sometime, so how much work do you want to put into making UI changes when you're going to be using a new framework anyways? I'm just not seeing it. But that's just a guess, as is your fanciful calculation. If Evernote is collecting telemetry data on usage (can't remember if they are or not) they they might no better. Look, I appreciate suggestions, and Evernote does, of course, but as a software developer myself, my instinct tells me that it would be very small bang for low buck, and something to prioritize down.Frankly, I can say that I've seen this request before, and I've been following the Evernote forums -- particularly the Windows requests -- for a long time. I can certainly agree with that. Take care, and don't let grouches like me stop you from making suggestions!
  22. Moving stuff around is free. I do upvotes for $1000, if anyone will pay me, that is...
