  1. Is this a web clipping or a copy/paste of a web page? This sort of thing can happen when formatting from a web page and Evernote don't get along. It's annoying. If it's a web clipper thing, you might try to re-clip it as a simplified web page.
  2. That''s a pretty silly comparison. It doesn't seem like a big user win to me. But if you want to send me $1000, I'll upvote it.
  3. What do *you* think the pros and cons are? What window would be closed? Are you talking about when you have a note open in a separate window? If so, this would not gain mush, since closing a window is so easy.
  4. You're kidding, right? Evernote has tons of competitors. A web search on "alternatives to evernote" makes them pretty easy to find. Some of them do allow import of Evernote content (though I was less than impressed at what OneNote did to my notes when I tried it several years back),
  5. The request is exactly as stated. You don't need to be an Android dev or guru to make requests, nor does a request need to be something that's used by a large percentage of the user base. It's just a request; guesses/ information relating to sort of stuff is of course fine for other users to add, but ultimately it's up to Evernote to process and prioritize. And it's up to @Salvor to decide whether they want their post to be turned into something that other users can support via post and/or vote..Which is why I asked. Not being an Android developer myself, I can't speak from a position of knowledge, but my guess would be that operations on Evernote stuff (make boldface, cut/copy/paste, date insertion, etc.) would need to be somehow exposed so that a user could make the connection between keyboard events and that API. If those operations aren't exposed by Evernote, then it would be up to them to do so. So yes, if my guess is correct, then yes, Evernote might indeed need to do something to make this possible. Again, I'm not an Android developer, so I could be way off (in which case, I'd be happy to be educated). It takes about 5 seconds to do this. It's really just an organizational thing in many cases, though in this case, it's a courtesy to the original poster.
  6. But for how long? If it's a temporary spike, then not a big problem, I'd think... Remember, opening a new note, if I recall @dcon's notes,, means spinning up one of more of the Evernote subprocesses, which might be a factor. You could dig into things somewhat more deeply than Task Manager using SysInternal's ProcMon tool.
  7. I'd be happy to move this to the Android request forum, so that other users can vote it up. I'd add a vote, too!
  8. That would be more of an Android thing. Maybe try a web search on "android keyboard shortcuts" etc.?
  9. Just have your boss share a notebook with you that has any note templates they want you to use. Duplicate as needed. I find the Evernote note template stuff less useful than just duplicating notes.
  10. Um, sure. But first, please make this request in a separate location than in someone else's specific request, 'cause it seems like you're breaking your own suggestion, y'know? I'd suggest here, for starters: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/53-evernote-general-discussions/
  11. Not any way that I know of. I suppose that you could export your template note to disk, and import it back in; in that case, you don't get the "copy" appended, but it winds up in a new notebook. Or you might be able to import it back in more cleanly using the ENScript importnotes command and a .BAT file or something c:\bin>"c:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\ENScript.exe" importnotes /? Usage: ENScript importNotes [options] Options: /s {file|url} - source .enex file or url. If omitted, stdin is used to gather source specification. /n notebook - notebook to create the note in. If does not exist, lazy create. If omitted, use default notebook. /b notebook - business notebook to create the note in. If does not exist, lazy create. /u username - user name if not the same as database file name. /p password - user password to confirm Evernote service access. /d database - database file name if user name is not specified. If both database file name and user name are not specified, last login name is used and if there is none, USERNAME environment variable value is used as a user name. M:\Global Mapper Trunk> All of these entail some sort of work, though...
  12. My test case: Create a dummy tag "xyzzy" Apply the tag to one of my test notes (that I use for texting Evernote glitches, etc.) that live in a notebook named "Test" Go to All Notes, and do a search for notes with that tag: tag:xyzzy The note is seen in the note list Right click on the note in the note list, select "Move to Trash" The note disappears from the note list. Appears to work. Works the same with Assisted Search enabled or disabled.
  13. mod: duplicate question merged
  14. You already got an answer to this: Remember? Regarding your topic title: "Why use notebooks instead of tags to quickly organise notes"? It's a matter of taste, and some practicality. If you want to share a collection of notes to another account, you must use notebooks rather than tags. If you want to ensure that a collection of notes is always cached on a mobile device, then you mush use notebooks rather than tags. If you want to keep collections of notes locally on your computer on a desktop device, and never sync to the Evernote servers then you must use notebooks, not tags. Otherwise, use notebooks and tags as you with. One good thing about tags is that they can be used across notebooks. I don't know, it's up to you. If you want to collect quick thoughts in a special note, then that's fine. It's not really much to do with organizing your notes, though...
  15. At this time, in Evernote: You cannot add a stack under another stack. You cannot add a notebook under another notebook. You cannot add a stack under notebook. You cannot add a note to a stack You can only add a notebook under a stack, and a note to a notebook I don't know what you're trying to show us in the video, but at 13:22, the screen is showing a note under a notebook, which is the only place that a note can currently live in Evernote at this time.
  16. To back up Moe's Cal's post, some references: Evernote's advanced search syntax: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313828-How-to-use-Evernote-s-advanced-search-syntax A bit more technical: Evernote search grammar: https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php Basically, any search that begins with any: is an OR search. All other searches are AND searches. No mixing. You can get some measure of AND/OR behavior by using wildcards, for a contrived example, tag:data* language could be used to match notes that have either of the tags "database" OR "data structure" AND the literal term "language", but that's not generally useful.
  17. Notebooks are containers: every note belongs to exactly one notebook. Notebooks partition your notes into discrete collections. Stacks can be used to organize notebooks. You can use a notebook or a stack as a search context, or all notes. Tags are labels: a note can have 0 or more tags, and a tag can be applied to any number of notes. In Evernote, notebooks can be used for organizational purposes, but you must use notebooks to share collections of notes, designate a collection of notes as available offline on mobile applications, or designate collections of notes as local (i.e., unsynced) on desktop platforms. Yes, stacks+notebooks present a simple two tier hierarchy. Tags allow you to express connections between notes across notebooks.
  18. Evernote has never had user-controllable secondary sort. Heck, it's not all that long ago (ok, a few years) that they even added a saveable primary sort, and even that was only part of the Windows product: it was always a global setting before. If there is some sort of consistent secondary sort going on, it may be just accidental. Of course there's room for improvement, in many areas, but my guess is that it'll be awhile before we see much of that, at least until the new framework is in place. Edit: I eventually tried out that sort-by-tag thing: I found cases where the tag sets were identical, but the ordering of created date was seemingly random, and ditto for updated date. Secondary sorting in Evernote is chimeric.
  19. Apparently there is no shortcut for Merge in the Windows application. There's none shown on the Note / Merge main menu item, as there are for other operations that do have shortcuts (e.g. Note / "Move Notes Alt+Shift+M").
  20. There is no way to do this in Evernote at this time.
  21. In general, sure, and clever metaphor, but sometimes the engine mechanic is busy when the bodywork person isn't. Not saying that's what happened, but in the real world, not all developers are equal.
  22. I see this working fine with the Evernote Beta version (Evernote Web v5.30.0) in the latest (or very recent) Chrome on Win 10. The PDF shows in a large window, and if I click on the PDF header, the window outlines in blue, and I get a little popup widget with a download button and a "..." menu that has "Download", "View as Attachment", and "Full Preview" as menu items. Clicking "Download" opens the PDF in a separate windows, and from there I can print, download and peruse the document.
  23. If you filter on that tag, you can then sort by alpha order, and then save the search. When you use that saved search, the tag filter and the order should be preserved.
  24. One of their posts in a different topic this morning was clearly bot-ish. Flagged and hid it. This one here appears to be a direct but unattributed quote of an old Verge article: https://www.theverge.com/2018/9/4/17820752/evernote-premium-annual-subscription-sale-executives-depart, so kinda bogus, but mostly harmless, I guess.
  25. Sure -- life sucks, and then you go to OneNote or Notion or WhateverNote, and find out that life sucks in a totally different way...
