  1. These are the same tag in Evernote. Cane doesn't matter with tag names inside a single account. From the Evernote API reference (https://dev.evernote.com/doc/reference/Types.html#Struct_Tag (I've boldfaced the relevant rule): It is possible to see these as separate if one comes from another account, as with shared notebooks, but that's a different case altogether, since you cannot groom someone else's tags. I don't know what you mean by "namespace" here. Or what "source: Title_of_a_Book" means either. I know that "source"" is a valid search term in Evernote, but from the context, it doesn't seem to be what you're referring to.
  2. In the Evernote for Windows application, a long press on the '<' or '>' tools in the toolbar (you may have to add it if it's not showing): Well, you don't need a breadcrumb trail if you can just go to the displayed notebook easily. Which you can in the web and Windows version. Android, which I also use, not s much, as far as I can tell.
  3. In beta (308702) Prerelease (CE Build ce-62.5.9981):
  4. Since I'm a Windows user, I'll invoke @DTLow, who is very familiar with the Mac application and maybe he knows. It's a pretty handy feature and I'd like to have it on other platforms (Web and Android are the other two I use). In Windows, there are also toolbar buttons available that you can long-press to get a menu of previous and next locations, again, a lot like a web browser, or Chrome anyway. These "History" buttons generally take into account search context, not just note navigation, again, pretty handy, though sometimes confusing. Not sure what "Home" is: for Evernote, I suppose it would be either "All Notes" or your default notebook or the notebook you were in the last time you were in Evernote? Again, I recommended something like the Windows implementation, which gives you both options: a dropdown notebook list to move the note to if you click on the button, but provides for the ability to filter to that notebook if you click on the triangle icon to the right of the notebook button (the triangle icon works in the same way for tags, except it toggles the tag on/off in the current search filter). Both functions are useful. Evernote web is pretty hotkey poor, though there are some editing functions. Hopefully that will improve over time.
  5. OK, I'll do it. Latest on the Evernote Blog: read here: https://evernote.com/blog/mid-year-review-progress-so-far-how-you-can-help/
  6. I rise to proudly support feature parity among the various Evernote platforms!! Equality for all, I say! 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈
  7. Funny that. I'm looking at the web beta, and it has multiple highlight colors. The Windows application has had in-note find/replace for years. Global replace would be a nice-to-have. Well, I guess that they do take things into account after all... You might want to explore the videos that are posted here: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/306-behind-the-scenes-series/
  8. I see Undo/Redo working in the "Classic" web editor as well as the current beta. Typing, moving an image around, etc. seems to be fine. If you switch to another note, though, it appears that the Undo/Redo stack goes away.
  9. Busted. 😳 Yeah, I later recalled the old business card notes, and went back to consult the API and read about the "contentClass" attribute, which I believe can be used to create different note types, just didn't get back to amend my post. Even so, I figure that tables are pretty easy to add to an Evernote, so didn't think it'd require a special note type for that.
  10. The scenario is if you do a search for notes using some other criterion than notebook (e.g., literal text, tag, reminder, MIME content), then this gives you a quick way to get to the notebook that the note is contained in. I've found that to be useful on occasion. Not sure what a "breadcrumb trail" is. Are you referring to the history functionality implemented in e.g. Evernote for Windows where you can go back and forth through your Evernote navigations using Alt+Left and Alt+Right keys, much like page history in a web browser?
  11. Tab can be ambiguous in Evernote. You didn't mention which Evernote application you are using, but in the Windows client Ctrl+M indents, and Ctrl+Shift+M dedents I believe that Evernote would characterize this as a "formatting choice" Don't know what this means. Screenshot, perhaps?
  12. Helps to mention which Evernote application you are referring to. Windows? Mac? Android? iOS? Web.
  13. Then again, some people still believe that the Earth is flat, also without a shred of evidence...

    Tags Help

    There's already been feedback about separating a note's tags from its notebook. Just seems as though your main organizing concepts ought to be located near each other.
  15. I doubt that actual intuition comes into play here (most of what is called "intuitive" is actually learned behavior, and there's not a lot of similar UI that's out there to have learned from), but I think that a better choice might be to do something similar to what they do with tags: make the button have a dropdown that leads to menu items that let you: 1.:Filter by notebook, and 2. Move the note to a different notebook,
  16. This forum is specific to the Evernote web client. You should ask your question in the relevant Android forum here: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/210-evernote-for-android/
  17. If you're using the Mac client, then you should report problems in the Mac forum here: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/219-evernote-for-mac/ This forum is specific to the Evernote web client.
  18. Correct. The intent seems to be to have this be a shortcut to "going to" that notebook, i.e., filtering the note display to notes in that notebook. To move a note to a different notebook, you click on the "..." menu at the upper right, and select "Move to..."
  19. There's really no separate note types. For example, a reminders is not a separate note type: it's just a note with reminder data (reminder time, reminder done time, reminder order). If you want a table note, the easiest thing to do would be to create a note with a table that you can use as a template. Beyond that, sure it would be nice if there were more advanced table functionality (and hopefully you've added your vote to the relevant existing request(s)). Not sure whether they're working on anything like that, though, and they are generally chary of giving out specifics in upcoming roadmaps.
  20. FWIW: what I know is this: Tear down Evernote entirely: quit the Evernote application, use the tool tray to quit Evernote, and kill the EvernoteClipper.exe process. No Evernote processes are running. Start up the EvernoteTray application by whatever means you choose, then you'll see the following processes running (from Process Explorer): So the tray application starts up the Evernote Clipper process (EvernoteClipper.exe) as well as the main Evernote process(Evernote.exe) and its attendant subprocesses (the gang of five). If you open up the main Evernote application, you get the same processes running. If you activate up the New Note function, you get another Evernote subprocess ("Evernote Subprocess.exe"). I believe that this is the same situation as opening up a note in a separate window: every separate windows (which includes the New Note window) gets a new Evernote subprocess. Not sure what happens when you open a separate account at the same time (I can do that at home, not at work where I am now), but I'd guess probably a whole note Evernote.exe + 5 subprocesses. The Evernote helper is defined, in Windows, as the screen capture function and the New Note function. But all of the same stuff is running under the hood, whether you see the main application or not. Evernote is certainly running in the background.
  21. @DTLow's task filter is spot on. You can make such a saved search a shortcut, even, available in the left panel or on a toolbar. Reference for the search terms, including the reminder terms is here: https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php Windows stuff: I find the separate reminders list to be pretty handy, but it only sows in certain views (e.g. snippet view); it would be nice if it could be shown in all views. It would also be nice if you could disable it altogether, but you can close it so that it takes up a much smaller space in the view..
  22. Probably not going to happen. Per the Evernote SDK, tag names explicitly may not contain a comma (https://dev.evernote.com/doc/reference/Types.html#Struct_Tag). My guess is that probably because they are, in various parts of Evernote, stored in comma-delineated lists, so allowing a comma in a tag name would likely break a lot of stuff. You can, however, use a semicolon; i.e., the tag name "Last; first" is legal, as far as I can tell.
  23. The Evernote Tray Application is the starting point.You should see it in the Startup Apps list (I do). And the place in the file system where it lives is: <current users>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup. It's a link to evernotetray.exe (there's also the web clipper, evernoteclipper.exe).The Evernote tray application seems to spawn evernote.exe and its "Evernote Subprocess.exe" friends automatically, though the Evernote application isn't visible until you activate it somehow. You can spelunk this sort of stuff using the excellent Microsoft SysInternals AutoRuns and Process Explorer applications, btw.
  24. A big problem here is that Evernote's note content (ENML) isn't a full equivalent to HTML (https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/enml.php), and its editing capabilities are tailored towards editing only ENML content, and not full HTML. Moreover, in the web clipping process, HTML must be translated to more-or-less equivalent ENML, so it's not going to be an exact replica of the original web page. Anyways, the ability to remove the tables while retaining the cell content is a fair request, and actually something I'd find useful. Upvoted.
