  1. Right. Enter in the dropdown will add the currently highlighted tag. Enter when there's no dropdown causes the dialog to trigger the clip. Similarly, but not identically, tab in the dropdown causes the currently highlighted tag to be added, but when there's no dropdown, it changes focus to the next input control (Comment or Notebook, I think). Probably better if it was identical to the desktop client's entry method (don't know whether the desktops are identical in that respect), but unless you're a died-in-the-wool keyboard afficionado, it's certainly usable.
  2. I am running on Win 7, both at home and at work (tested both machines).
  3. Interesting. That's not what i'm seeing, also retested. BTW: Chrome 14.0.835.202 m
  4. I think that you need to type a space character after you type a comma for the auto-matching to turn on again.
  5. I didn't see quite that behavior. What I saw was the Shift key (also the Alt key and Ctrl key, for that matter) dismissing the dropdown tag list, but not finishing the auto-selection: the highlight for the unmatched portion remains, and you can keep typing, and the dropdown will come back, or type a comma to clear the highlight and accept, or Tab key to accept and move to the comment field, or Enter to accept and clip. In short, it's not the same as Tab or comma.
  6. OK, I see how to get there from the normal Evernote Firefox Extension page: Scan down to the bottom of the page where it says Version Information; click on the downward-facing chevrons at the right. This shows the version information for the current (official, I presume) release. Now at the bottom of that section, click on the "View all versions" link. Here you'll see all versions available, including pre-release (or whatever terminology) versions.
  7. The fact that Firefox 7 is still in beta might be relevant. You may have to wait until it's released.
  8. 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?
  9. Yes. I just tried "Title" and "Tags" and they both worked fine.
  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 works on all of my machines (XP, Win 7/64), but there are indeed reports that it doesn't work for some folks.
  11. It really is tempting to click on those instructions. I did it, too.
  12. The move and expand/shrink selection tools seem to be working for me (Win 7/64, Chrome 13.0.782.220 m). Cool stuff!
  13. 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...
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18. 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 would lead me to think that they're considering it.
  19. 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 coming at the problem from the wrong end. I think that enhancing search to allow for hierarchical functionality would be the way to go: i.e., the ability to search for notes labelled by a tag and any of its subtags would give users the ability to treat their tag trees as semantic hierarchies, which seems to be what some of them want.
  20. I am using the Evernote clipper version in Chrome 13.0.782.215 m, and it all seems to be working fine. If you're using that Evernote clipper version, have you tried removing and then re-installing it?
