  1. The user dictionary -- or specifically, the list of user additions -- should absolutely be editable. The fact that you cannot make deletions is something that Evernote should provide, and if you want to know the answer, you should ask them rather than ranting (your word) about a file format change. In computers, there very often a distinction between a concept or abstraction (i.e., a user dictionary) and its representation (a text file on disk, a binary file, a group of registry entries, whatever). This is the case here. Evernote should provide the ability to edit the former, but is under no o
  2. Your wish is granted. In the Evernote Windows Application, you can right-click in a note, select "To-do", then "Uncheck All" to uncheck all checked todo checkboxes ina note
  3. That's a gross generalization, and not at all representative of a lot of the developers I've worked in my 35+ years in the biz, many of whom were indeed "word people". Flip side, of course, would be claiming that English majors are generally not numbers/logic people, so you oughtn't rely on them to produce anything sensible about software design/development. See how that works? It's possible that the design of the word list was intended eventually to support such things as pluralization, case endings, and the like, something that a simple word list might not be as well suited to. Hard to
  4. In the English version, it's Settings / Notes / Auto-link phone numbers
  5. Requests for some of the things that you mention, e.g. Latex support, have already been made. You should seek them out in the appropriate feature request forum (https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/449-product-feedbackfeature-requests/) and add your vote/commentary. Being specific about what you want is far better than vague requests like "needs to work on an application more consistent with the current use and rediscover itself".
  6. OK, here's how to do it: First things first: if you want to attach a formula to a table, you're going to need a way to refer to the table if the formula is outside the table, either in the body of the note elsewhere, or in a different table. That goes to the internal anchor problem/request that is already present in the Evernote wish-o-sphere. And you probably need a way to define a landing spot for the result of the calculation, a la a code block or suchlike. So a new Evernote element to add. Note that for calculations done wholly inside a table, the previous items are not really necess
  7. That's true enough, but if you have a lot of notes, it's not a lot of help, since you can't sort by # of tags (same for the Tags pane in the Windows application). So useful, but doesn't scale particularly well.
  8. Thanks for digging that up before I could get to it.
  9. Evernote's native note storage format is ENML Ihttps://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/enml.php), so HTML-ish, but contains Evernote-specific elements..Anyway, round-tripping back and forth between Markdown and ENML is problematic. Converting Markdown to HTML (or ENML)? Pretty straightforward. Converting arbitrary HTML to Markdown? Not so straightforward. So what's your solution? I don't think that Evernote is going to change its internal format any time soon...
  10. No idea. This worked fine for me with Evernote up and with two user accounts open concurrently, and also with Evernote completely shut down. And I've never seen the error, though most of my use of ENScript is for purposes of generating ENEX backup files for storage elsewhere. Is this error repeatable? @gazumped This use is convenient if you want to write a quick text note into Evernote from the command line, without needing to switch contexts. You can also use it, as the OP says, to automate, as in storing program run logs into Evernote.
  11. The answer to questions like this is almost always another question: what are you trying to do? Edit: The reason for my return question to you is that you can read lots of stuff about Evernote, some of it good, but even good advice might not fit your needs. Until you figure out what you're trying to do, you won't get much out of Evernote. If you try to describe what you're trying to do here, there are lots of people here in these forums who can give you great advice as to how to approach your use case.
  12. This topic seems to be more like a feature request. Moving to an appropriate feature request forum (I think that General is best, since it applies to all Evernote applications, as far as I can tell (though the workaround is a Windows-only thingy). Go ahead and upvote; I'll join you... @hanseric, if you want to change the title to more reflect that it's a request rather than a how-doI?, that would be great.
  13. Just pullin' the numbers out the web app. But remember that there's a public beta that uses the new Large Header/Small header... stuff, and the classinc one that doesn't, but there's also the limited access beta, that I didn't get into in time (I guess). Maybe that's the one being referred to here. But in which case, the post should probably have gone here: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/640-new-search-experience-currently-web-only/ I share your confusion...
  14. They also posted near-identical topics on the not receiving text messages, so no need for them to start any more new threads on the problem. Oh, and I merged them already .
  15. It was a pretty half-baked guess and I didn't take time to elaborate. In my world (Win32 application, processing 3D view shortcut commands, as opposed to text processing), for something like Ctrl+Shift+W, we get an uppercase 'W', and we check the states of the Ctrl and Shift keys to see whether they're up or down (both down, in this case). I we needed to distinguish between Shift+W and 'w' with Caps Lock on, we'd have to test the Caps Lock state as well. So it's up to the handler to decide in straight up Win32 programming. Not how things play out in the web keystroke handling, though. BT
  16. Yes and no. But mostly no, in my opinion. Since this is a lengthy thread, there's a fair bit of Windows-specific information included here that would never apply to the Mac. Seems fair to search for the same topic in the Mac-specific request forum and add to it (or create a new one if it's not there already). We can merge topics if they're deemed to be redundant, and moved to the General section.
  17. I heard that there's some program out there that can help you collect random bits of information like keyboard shortcuts, names of good beers, etc. so that you can find them easily. I wish I could remember the name of that program....
  18. Weird: I had the key already existing in the registry, and I tried changing its value's extension to .png and back to .jpg, renaming the key and deleting it altogether (to test the default), changing the case of filename from "ScreenClip.jpg" to "Screenclip.jpg" etc, all without exiting/restarting Evernote, and it all worked fine on the fly. Clueless...
  19. In my opinion, Evernote doesn't need another parallel system of similar functionality to the existing tag system. Tags already do much of this sort of thing, at least in the Evernote Windows application: you get partial tag recognition with droplist suggestions in several parts of the UI (e.g. Filter by Tag: Alt+Shift+T). Moreover, tags, like keywords are metadata, i.e., not part of the note text: you don't need to edit the note text to add or remove them. And the postpended underscore just seems awkward and unfamiliar. As an alternative, I'd support the much more familiar '#' prefix to denote
  20. Just a simple UX suggestion: currently, to show or hide the left panel, you can go to the View menu and use the relevant menu item, or use the F10 shortcut key. Since my memory cache of application-specific shortcut keys is only so large, it would be simpler and more direct if you could also toggle left panel state by double-clicking on an unused area in the panel.
  21. This is the reason that we use the forum quoting feature, so that responses to an individual are clearly to that individual...
  22. @DTLow is right: in general there's no way to do this. But if you use wildcards, you can accomplish something similar with a little work.:if the names of TAG2, TAG3, and TAG4 have identical prefixes that TAG1 (or or other tags) doesn't have. So for example, let: TAG1 = Task, TAG2 = Release8.0, TAG3 = Release8.1, TAG4 = Release8.2 Then a search for Task Release8* would find notes that have "Task" and any of the "Release8" tags. Granted, this is pretty awkward, but if you have a similar type search that you do a lot, it might be worth it to rename certain tags to make them compati
  23. This is for the screen cap. You have to add the entry to the registry to change format, otherwise it defaults to PNG (I tested this by renaming the entry to "xScreenClipperFileName"). I don't know what it does if you renamed the filename to have an extension other than .jpg or .png. Exercise left for the reader. I don't know whether you can change the web clipper's image format type.
