  1. I tried wrapping the @ in quotes (e.g. @"My Notebook"), and also tried using the notebook name with the space removed, but neither of these worked. So maybe there's no way at the moment.
  2. Definitely. Interesting to see how other folks use Evernote -- I know it's pretty different than I use it.
  3. Ah, yes, I think that they understand the need for upgrading the table functionality in the Mac client, and are planning on doing so.
  4. You know, I hear that word "bloat" applied to software, and I've started to think that it just means the 80% of a software package that the speaker doesn't use, but of the 20% that is used, half of that is used by everyone, and the other half is part of some other user's conception of what is "bloat". No, Evernote may not have (or need) all of the features of a Microsoft Word (which is over 25 years old after all), but it still has room for improvement and new functionality. So maybe adding IFilter capabilities would be someone else's idea of bloat, or maybe it's just a good idea and should be added, or maybe it's ripe for a third-party solution. Dunno, myself, but it's interesting to me.
  5. Hmmm, searching for an example of one of those isn't so easy. I just browsed a bit. Anyways, here's one: http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=24360. Or just make a "How I use Evernote" post, probably in the General Discussion about Evernote forum. Oh, apropos of not too much related to Evernote -- I play in a band with a dulcimer (Appalachian, not hammered) player -- except that he's built his own electric dulcimers, and plays them like a guitar rather than in his lap. Interesting instrument.
  6. This is a fairly commonly requested feature. You can find further discussion elsewhere by searching the forum for "highlight' or "background color". Most (if not all) of those "discussions" are about changing the background color of notes. Correct (plus the application of highlighting of selected text) -- that's what the poster was asking about, and that's why I directed him to check out the forums if they wanted more on the topic. That's a different topic. It's not impossible, but neither is it a feature of all Windows programs in the world. It's a choice in this case, I think.
  7. I think that it would be better if the use case stuff (most of the long post) went into a separate post (there are others out there on the topic of "How I use Evernote", etc.), so that it's more likely to be read by folks who want information on the may ways to use Evernote.
  8. I would file a support ticket: http://www.evernote.com/about/contact/support/.
  9. This is also a Knowledge Base FAQ: http://www.evernote.com/about/kb/article/search-no-tags?lang=en.
  10. We use JIRA currently, mainly for bug tracking. It's OK, but unfortunately the source control that we use ain't so hot (it's usable, but slow), and its integration with JIRA leaves something to be desired.
  11. I just live in Eastern Standard Time, which helps...
  12. No, I don't think that they've added the future date specification to the search syntax (e.g. 'created:week+1', if you're overloading the created date for due date). The future date extension to the date search terms was mentioned by Dave E some number of months ago. I'd guess that they'll come in once due dates (or subject dates, whatever) are supported in the UI (a field called 'Subject', for subject date, I think, is already in the Windows client, but you can't change it via the UI or do anything else with it).
  13. The new web interface allows you to break out a note into a separate browser instance, so you should be able to do something close to what you want, depending on the device you're running on (desktop == pretty easy).
  14. You use the Mac client for your Macintosh, and you use the Windows client for your netbook. Your notes reside in the cloud, but are sync'ed down to each computer; changes made on one computer are sync'ed to the cloud, and then down to the other computer. Yes, there is an Evernote client for the iPhone: http://www.evernote.com/about/download/iphone/.
  15. OCR for images is done on the Evernote servers. If you're a premium user, you get first priority at OCR, though depending on load, that may take several hours to turn around. Free users come second.
  16. If you're talking about a desktop Evernote client, you should be able to set up an import folder and direct your scans there.
  17. If it's generating thumbnails, a GPU might come in handy.
  18. Tags are nested by merely dragging and dropping in the tag tree. Drop a tag onto another tag, and the tag (and all of its children) will become nested under the second tag. Drop a tag on the "Tags" label (it's not a real tag) and the tag and its children will become top-level tags. Stacks are merely collections of notebooks; they're nice because they allow you to organize your notebook list (you have a max of 250 notebooks -- managing them as a flat list can be onerous) and certain operations, like search can be applied on a stack of notebooks. Notebooks are merely flat collections of notes.Notebooks and stacks appear in the Notebooks list. Stacks cannot be nested: if you drag a stack onto another stack, the notebooks will be moved from the first stack into the second stack, and the first stack will be deleted. Notebooks cannot be nested in other notebooks. However, notebooks and stacks coexist in the root of the Notebooks list; stacks are there to allow you to organize that list better. The Knowledge Base is a work in progress, and more topics are being added.
  19. Nope. Each note in inside of exactly one notebook. Notebooks can be nested, to one level, inside a Stack, but you cannot nest a notebook inside another notebook. Stacks cannot be nested. Notes can be associated with tags, and tags can be organized in a hierarchical tree, but they are not themselves functionally hierarchical. There's plenty of discussion here on the forums on this topic, if you care to search.
  20. @nevernoter: if you have a comment on the substance of the request, then that's welcome in the forum, but it's probably better to leave off the personal remarks. @JMU: I think that only thing that would be an issue is that there is already an existing "List View" in existence in the desktop clients, plus the old web interface, and has been for a fair amount of time, so a different name would probably be wise (maybe "Vertical List" was implied?). The current List View is he one that I use 99% of the time, and I like the wider format, so I'd prefer to keep that one too, though I have no problem with adding one to the 3 column layout as you propose. I expect that the columns would be configurable as with the current layout.
  21. I am not a Mac person, so I can't comment on some of your issues; the Windows client has some of the capabilities that you're asking for (auto-titling of notes, etc.). This came through perfectly on the Windows client, clipping several ways (via the web clipper --> web, via copy/paste directly into local Evernote instance). As stated, this works in the Windows client. Tags and notebooks serve separate organizational functions and are not redundant. A note belongs to exactly one notebook (and hence partition the note space), but a note can have many tags (and I like to think of tags as describing notes); tags are also independent of notebooks. Granted, some users might want to dispense with tags, in favor of notebooks, for organizing, but tags are an important part of Evernote, and a lot of people use them. For iPhone specific questions, you're probably better off asking in the iPhone forum: you'll probably get better answers, and other iPhone users are more likely to look there for answers to the same problems. I don't really understand the context of your other points (are they Mac related or iPhone related?), so I'll ignore those.
  22. Nope -- it's not supported, and I don't think that Evernote has a plug-in architecture that would allow you to change the display of a note in its Evernote window.
  23. The only rule I know about tags is that they must already exist in your account -- you can't make a new tag via email. I just tested this, with an existing tag and a fake one: the existing tag was applied to the note, the fake one was left in the note title.
