  1. Oh, I figured that that spreadsheet was just dropping hints to us lower-class moderator types.
  2. Urg, I won't be going out. It's bad enough that I live in the home of L. L. Bean's, I don't have to drive 25 miles to seek out that kind of punishment at the mall... Heather, are you looking for something in a particular size/color?
  3. Windows 7 itself has some behaviors that are similar to docking which work fine for this -- you can just dock a note (or the entire Evernote application, depends on how big your screen is) over on one side of your screen, and switch in other apps, browser, whatever. I do it all the time (ok, two screens at work makes it better)
  4. A couple of things that I can think of. First, Wordpress is a publishing solution. Evenote is primarily a note storage and retrieval system, and only secondarily (or tertially?) a publishing system. Second, if could just be a prioritization thing. That's not to say that it won't happen; it just may not happen soon.
  5. It's been in place on Windows (and I think, the Mac) for ages, not just recently. Very recently though, they added the ability to Ctrl+Click select multiple notes in the Web client.
  6. Once you're logged in, you should be able to go back to the support page (here: http://www.evernote.com/about/contact/support/) and submit the inquiry.
  7. Actually, the hierarchy is embodied in the name of the tag, so long as you mirror the hierarchical structure or the original tag tree in the name. Which is sorta the point: you see the tag, you see the implied hierarchy.
  8. Some people expose a hierarchy in their tag naming schemes. See this earlier post from this thread: http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=20719#p116181, for example. Again, not necessarily convenient, but possible.
  9. As I said before, Evernote persists these settings in the registry (cookies are a browser thing). I find my Evernote settings at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Evernote\Evernote\ in the string value "NotelistSorting". I don't know what you mean by keeping things "locked down tight" -- do you mean that you prevent writes to the registry?
  10. All I have to do is set it in the UI; i.e., it's in the upper left corner of the current note list (List View, Note View, Snippet View), a dropdown menu that lets you select the sort field and order. For example, mine currently says "Notes by Created", and has the "Reverse Sort Order" flag set. Or in List View, you can click on a column to select that field; click again to reverse the sort order. There's no actual place to save the setting; it's persisted into the Windows registry on shutdown, and read back in on startup (and I can verify it by looking at the registry). That's the way that it
  11. Hmmmph, more color stuff. Well, we know they've been working on that, on at least one platform, so it's probably on its way for others...
  12. No worries... this is an open forum; your opinion is just as useful as anyone else's.So just colors (and possibly icons) for notebooks, tags and saved searches, but not notes? That doesn't sound like an unreasonable request. I don't know of any plans to add color-coding Evernote in that manner, but hey, over the next 100 years, you'd think they might get around to putting something like that in somewhere along the way. Thanks.
  13. The client isn't specified here, but just to be clear, in the Windows client at least, sort order is not a notebook-dependent setting, it's a global setting. In other words, you set sort order for one notebook, and switch to a different notebook, and that sort order remains enabled. My experience is that that setting persists between invocations of Evernote.
  14. By searching the forum for "linux", I found this topic: http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=29074&hilit=linux. Short answer: I wouldn't count on it any time soon, however, there other options discussed in that thread.
  15. Just curious. At what level of granularity do you want this feature to apply? Should notebooks have their own colors? Tags? Or should the colors be totally separate from the note/tag organizational scheme? Or should it be an attribute of notes?
  16. If I understand properly, this would result in multiple levels of notebooks represented by tag hierarchy. I don't think that you have. The suggestion is to allow (but not force) search to be able to honor the tag hierarchy, without affecting the current system of stacks, notebooks or tags. In other words, this mode of search would allow you to search for tag "A", and match not only explicit matches of tag "A" (which is what it does now), but also notes tagged with subtags of "A". Note that this is something I'm suggesting could be useful, but I've never see any posting by Evernote folks that w
  17. Nested tags in Evernote are mainly for organizational purposes, and not for exposing semantic hierarchies. It's been that way since Evernote added the nesting capabilities, and was acknowledged by them at the time. And they understand the difference. That tag nesting exists doesn't make them non-useful; they are exactly as useful as before nesting came around, but now you can organize them, which makes them more manageable, so long as you don't fall into the trap of assuming that they behave hierarchically with respect to searching. Auto adding tag parents is problematic; in my opinion; it's c
  18. OK, fair enough -- for my part, I wouldn't seek to restrain you from saying whatever you want to anyone you choose, including this forum. I'd just hope that you would give Evernote a fair shot at trying to help you out, in their normal process, before advocating too strongly against their products. After all, bugs occur in almost all software, but support is also part of a proper evaluation. And they may yet have a way for you to recover your data.
  19. You seem to be talking to me as if I am an employee; I'm not. FYI, at the premium level, you're paying for faster support, yes, but you're also paying for more storage and support for more file types. If that package is too expensive for you, that's your call. If your intention here is to threaten Evernote into supporting you faster because you might badmouth them to all of your friends, well, good luck with that. BTW, this is primarily a user forum, and other users can sometimes help with problems, sometimes not. And sometimes Evernote staff will respond here, but it's not guaranteed. Go thro
  20. Posting a request in forum serves as a feature request. As nearly as I can tell, Evernote folks do read every post, though they don't always reply.
