  1. In a pure hierarchy, an item has at most one parent, classification wise. Tags in Evernote have that property. What you're trying to do, however, is mashup multiple hierarchies into one, and Evernote can't do that.. In this case, you can have your animal hierarchy ("animal"->"cat"->"tiger" or "animal.cat.tiger"), which is a natural inheritance tree (a cat is-a animal, a tiger is-a cat, etc.) in terms of a classical Linnaean classification, but endangered vs. non-endangered is a purely transitory classification (a species may go on of off the endangered list, e.g.). I's good practice to keep that categorization separate from whatever animal classification scheme you use. Incidentally, you're on Windows, you can implement a sort of hierarchical search using the tag hierarchy (i.e. "animal"->"cat"->"tiger") and the setting Tools / Options / Navigation / "Automatically select child tags". If this is enabled, and you search on, say, the tag 'cat' (tag:cat), then all of the subtags of 'cat' will be added to the search, so that you get notes tagged with "tiger' automatically. I don't find it useful, because it's a global setting (you cannot apply it to searches ad hoc), but others might.
  2. No, it's still there -- in the latest, greatest Windows beta anyways -- but seems unpredictable/unstable. I've see it appearing, appearing and then flashing off, and not appearing. If it appears, and you switch notes, it may disappear eventually, and then not come back. Maybe there's a timer that governs this, or maybe there's some other condition that turns it off. It's unpredictable, but I've definitely seen the highlighting happen.
  3. Actually, I can just merge it to the existing topic, and you can then add your vote there (in addition to having your supporting posts as well). Edit: merged
  4. Guess this thread doesn't apply to you, then, does it?
  5. ...or one of us could just move it, rather than creating a brand new identical post. Note that .webp support had been requested previously..
  6. I'd start with a web search on "move notes from bear to evernote". There are several hits, including some in this forum.
  7. intitle: (and Evernote search in general) doesn't do searches that match inside of a string of non-blabk characters, so that's the reason that 'selcgros' cannot be found. If 'selgros' is a common part of note titles in your workflow, a workaround would be to have a 'selgros' tag and apply it as needed.I know, but search improvements like infix matching have been made, but Evernote hasn't implemented it so far. As a side note, notes that contain PDF files can be found using: resource:application/pdf
  8. Mitigating factor in this case is that this is a beta release, so fortunately the affected number of users should be relatively small. In my case, I had avoided the earlier beta 3, and the update to the new beta 3 from beta 2 went smoothly, which I think is expected, since there's no downgrade of the CEF componentry. . Except: installs (or the updating step in the install) will halt if you just happen to be at a breakpoint in the Visual Studio debugger; probably not in the test suite... But no problem, just F5 to Continue, and it's all swell...
  9. Folks, if you want to discuss relative merits of of Notion or other Evernote competitors, that's probably fine for the forums. If you want to get into the business of recruiting others for other competitors, passing Notion credits around, etc., then you should probably continue via PM.
  10. See https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/119592-evernote-for-windows-618-beta-3/?tab=comments#comment-535667 and related posts in that topic.
  11. One curious thing: I set the default font to Segoe UI 10, and created a new note, then typed some text into the note ("Segoe UI 10", how original). OK, fine -- looks like the same in MS Word. Then I copied that text, hit a newline and pasted it. With Segoe UI/10 showing for font parameters, I then selected the new text, and re-selected "10" from the font size dropdown, and the selected text, while still looking like the original, spread out just a little, as if the spacing between characters increased a tiny bit, maybe by a pixel. On the other hand, it didn't change if I re-selected the "Segoe UI" font. So I'd guess that the font that's created by default and the font that's specified when you change font size isn't created with exactly the same parameters as the default font is.
  12. The day I'm asked to do installer stuff will be the day I retire...
  13. Are you talking about the evernote.com home page? I see the login link at the top of the page. A screen cap of what you're seeing might help. Alternatively you can just save a bookmark for the actual login link target: https://www.evernote.com/Login.action
  14. Hopefully it's nothing worse that espresso overload. (I was smartlucky and hadn't updated to Beta 3 yet) Good luck -- hope that the rollback goes better and everyone's heart rates can drop back. Working under pressure isn't fun, it's worse when it entails undoing something that didn't work. See the scars here? And here? Oh, and over there?
  15. It's less a matter of leaving snippet view, which I do occasionally for other purposes (it's not as though lists are some kind of rough neighborhood, after all) -- it's just that I don't delete things all that often, so not much need to go trawling around in the dank basement of my castoff notes. No feat, though -- I retreated to the safety and comfort of my beloved snippet view in short order...
  16. Oh, pshaw... that'd be a first... I can't really say if/when it changed, but it didn't seem right that the notes would be purged forever so it seemed worth a test. This way is better, though retaining the original notebook would be helpful. I didn't previously know about the deleted date, so I even learned something there.
  17. I don't think that that's true. I just now verified it (in the Windows beta 2, FWIW). I set up a test notebook, moved some dummy notes into it, and synced. Then I deleted the notebook; got the "Are you sure message" as above and synced again. True to the message above, the notes were moved to the Trash. You can find them using the "Deleted" date, which you can add to a list view and then sort by it. If you click on a deleted note, in the note preview, you get an "Erase Note" button and a "Restore Note"button. "Erase Note" will purge the note, "Restore Note" will move the note to your default notebook (as far as I can tell). If you multi-select, then you can move them to whatever notebook you wish. It does seem as through the deleted notebook name is not retained, but you can always recreate it. However, the notes in that notebook are not automatically purged forever; you need to do that yourself.
  18. Download to where? If you have attachments (documents, images, etc.) in an Evernote note, you should be able to move them to your local file system. Is that what you mean? Which Evernote client are you using? Windows? Mac? Android? iOS? Web?
  19. Crashes are being reported over in the 6.18 Beta 3 topic (https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/119592-evernote-for-windows-618-beta-3/), which is the one you're actually running, not Beta 1 (this topic).
  20. This makes no sense to me. I can freely drag notes to other notebooks in the Windows desktop. In fact, that's how I populated a new notebook that I then tried to delete, in my example above. Oh, and you can multi-select (Ctrl+click and Shift+click) notes in the note list, even in the trash, in the Windows application. When you do that, you get a panel that allows you to move them en masse to a different notebook. Or you can drag them as well. Note that you cannot drag notes into stacks, because stacks do not contain notes; they only contain notebooks. You've never been able to do this in the Windows application. You can drag notebooks into (and out of) stacks. How do I know this? I just tried it and it works, just as it has for some years now.
  21. In the Windows client, when I right-clicked on a notebook and selected "Delete...", I got an "Are you sure?" dialog, and no option to stop seeing it:
  22. So you'd then need to add a special extra section to a note that's its description. How would that be materially different to adding the same description to the beginning of the note?
  23. Last time I checked, they use the Windows setting for short date. Settings / Time & Language / Date & Time / "Change date and time formats"
