  1. F6 is a hotkey that only works when you're in the Evernote for WIndows application. Ctrl+Shift+F is a global shortcut key that should work from anywhere in Windows, not just when you're in the Evernote application.
  2. Sure, consistency would be great.That seems to be what they're focusing on currently. I have no idea where they are in the process. Thanks for adding the examples. I'm on Windows almost exclusively, at least for making content, Android for reading notes and clipping from web sites, and the web only occasionally.
  3. No problem, please don't worry about it. Cheers!
  4. Um, I didn't forget anything. I am not an Evernote employee. Just reporting how it works today, as best I can tell. Yes, they changed the behavior awhile ago. I noticed, but didn't care that much either way. Might even be intentional, though I'm not sure. Maybe it will change back someday. Not critical for my usage. Well, for me, if I wanted syntax colored code, I'd just paste it into a code editor. I can read code without coloring, so it's not a big deal to store code clips in Evernote. But hey, if you need functionality that Evernote doesn't have, then you should probably look for a different product. Which is the usual advice I'd give to anyone anyways...
  5. Um, all that was is a search for posts that contain the text "untitled", it's not clear that all of them are asking for what you are. That being said, in the latest Evernote for Windows application, if I create a new note and type into it, or paste some text in to it, the new note does indeed take the first line of text as its title, where it will show up in the list view Title column. If there's a scenario where this doesn't work, you should probably specify it. I checked my note database of ~7500 notes, and found <10 that had "Untitled" as note title. Several of those actually had just an image as their note content, so "Untitled" seems like a valid choice in those cases. Several others looked like web clips gone awry; not sure what happened there, but if "Untitled" goes into the note's title field when the note was created (as opposed to having the title field be blank) for whatever reason, then that's semi-valid, at least. That left a couple of pretty old notes that I'm not sure what might have happened; there certainly was some debate over what the proper behavior should be in the forums at the time (2009-2010, I think), so it's hard to tell. As I say, if you have a repeatable scenario that demonstrates the problem, you should post it here, along with the Windows client you're using.
  6. The way that this generally works is that, when copying to the clipboard, an application can put the clip onto the clipboard in one or more formats. Then, when pasting, Evernote will scan the available formats, and pick whichever one works best for Evernote. Evernote does not scan to try to detect code clips in text, and I don't know of any code editors that generate such a "code" format. You can examine what formats are available using one of any number of clipboard viewer utilities I(I have something called "Free Clipboard Viewer 3.0). So, for example, with Visual Studio, a copy operation will put the text onto the clipboard in several formats, including, most importantly, Text, OEM Text, Unicode Text, and Rich Text. On the other end: as far as I can tell, Evernote will choose Rich Text if it's there, because when I paste into a standard text area of Evernote, I get monospaced (Consolas in my case, which is what I'm using in VS), colored text from syntax-colored source. But the code block is currently "special" in that it doesn't use the colors, and -- I think -- uses a standard monospace typeface (Monaco). That's the way it works right now, and I doubt very much that they're going to specially change that behavior and release it within a week...
  7. I see it working in the latest Evernote for Windows application ( (308489) Public (CE Build ce-62.3.7750)), as described in the linked article (though the resize handle is a square, not a circle): The article does seem to leave open a possibility that some images cannot be resized, but I don't know what the criteria would be. The fallback for me, in that case would be to right-click on the image and select "Open with" and select your favorite paint program, resize it there, and save it.
  8. I think I had more or less the same reaction when I looked at it a few months ago: cool stuff, but how the heck do I get started? And how do I turn it into the all-purpose, searchable shoebox that I use Evernote for? I never quite got over the edge on that one, and Evernote continues to be useful in its own unique way, so Notion isn't really on my radar currently.
  9. Ha-ha, you and me both, my Evernote-lovin' friend.
  10. The main feature request for full Boolean search in Evernote -- which I would take to include NOT operations and full generality -- is here: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/50625-full-boolean-search/. You should consider adding your vote/voice to it. I think it would be a good thing to have, myself (yes, I upvoted the request).
  11. Ok, so more personable is fine, but very secondary to precision, in my opinion. My opinion: a little goes a long way, and it's easy to overdo. And if you're trying to appeal to a professional audience, too cutesy may not be the right tone for that. Anyways, a quibble/question: You don’t have time to hunt through menus, so we added some new shortcuts, like: .... Overall, that's fine, but the addition of "like:" implies that there may be more shortcuts that were added. Were there? And more importantly, are they reflected in the official Evernote for Windows Shortcuts page (https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209004807-Keyboard-shortcuts-in-Evernote-for-Windows)? And are they also in the menus? Because otherwise they're not really discoverable. And what do they do, specifically? E.g., what's the difference between CopySelection and what Crtrl+C does? Edit: Ah, OK: these are new global shortcut key defaults for existing functionality. That could have been made clearer. A lot of people don't mentally distinguihs Windows shortcuts from application hotkeys -- I tend to forget myself, and I should know better.
  12. This is just an issue between you and your image editor, and not really much to do with Evernote..If you can do it in place and then just save/quit as is done via cropping, then that should work fine. Just waiting for the original poster to to retry their cropping example, because my technical wisdom leads me to believe that Evernote handles this correctly.
  13. This is not an either-or (either developers do market and marketers do coding or vice-versa). Me, I'd prefer that the official release notes to be clear (easy to understand, and with known use cases) and justified (why Evernote thinks they're important). In my opinion, the ones we saw earlier, and the most recent lose clarity by being so casual.. On the other hand, whether the forum release notes need to exactly match the official release notes is a different matter. I think that the forum notice of release posts should include the official release notes as-is, but if Evernote staffer wants to add some lighthearted (or even better, more in-depth) commentary, then that's fine by me. Just keep them separate, please.
  14. Unfortunately, you cannot. You should go to https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/80084-control-which-image-shown-in-a-notes-thumbnailsnippet-view/ and add your vote.
  15. Which Evernote product are you referring to? Windows? Mac? Android? iOS? Web? It's usually better to direct your comments to the appropriate subforum in the forums here. I'll be happy to move this topic to a better location, if you want. Edit: looks like it's the Windows application. Offer still stands.
  16. So I tested this out using the Windows application: I found a note containing a single image. I duplicated that note. In the duplicate note, I right clicked and opened up the image in aan image editor (Paint.Net) Cropped the image to a smaller center rectangle, and saved it. On return from Paint.Net, the note's image was seen to be correctly cropped. To compare: the original note was reported at 310KB, and the duplicated note was reported at 37K. I then exported both notes to disk in Evernote format, and verified that the exported note sizes were also correct. So what could be the cause of what you're seeing, aside from the fact that you're using a different OS than me? One thing that popped into my mind is that in cropping oyur image, you cropped out stuff that was non-complex, i.e. easily compressible, while the common center section remained possibly less easily compressible, and if your side reporting units were KB rather than bytes, you may not have noticed an difference. The thing to do in your situation is to run a test like I did, with duplicate notes, editing one and comparing results. That sghould tell a more complete story.
  17. That's correct, as far as I know; in fact, the notes in the result list don't contain any of the notes referenced in Assisted Search; they match just what you asked for. Assisted Search just gives you some hints in case you're not finding what you're looking for. Nice feature, that, including the inclusion of Trash, since people sometimes delete notes by mistake, I'm told...
  18. Not seeing this in (308477) Prerelease (CE Build ce-62.3.7750)
  19. Please see the following relevant topic, particularly posts by @Rich Tener:
  20. What kind of text is it? Is it a URL or other link-resembling text? I paste from web pages into the Windows client a fair bit, and I don't see this happening.
  21. Please post the version number that this problem occurs in.It's in Help / About... Edit: I do see the same thing in version (308477) Prerelease (CE Build ce-62.3.7750)
  22. The poster is just saying that they are not using the pro version of the Tiny Scanner app, so they cannot comment on how that version works.
  23. Re: the forum. Evernote didn't build it; that would be the folks from the link at the bottom of the page: https://invisioncommunity.com/. Obviously Evernote configures and administers it. You should probably check your forum notification options, if you haven't already: https://discussion.evernote.com/notifications/options/, and if you find that you're not receiving forum notifications as you should, you should report that so that the forum admin can look into it.
  24. You mean like this, from the Windows client, at the bottom of the note, with the status bar turned on (View / Status Bar):
