  1. I am not a Mac user, but it appears to be a keyboard shortcut: ⌃ ⌘ N The whole Mac keyboard shortcut article is here: https://support.evernote.com/link/portal/16051/16058/Article/587/What-are-the-keyboard-shortcuts-in-Evernote-for-OS-X
  2. I would tend to let Evernote worry about its own branding and character. I also sense that Evernote really shies away from putting scads of options into its programs (a la MS Word or Firefox, say); feels like a conscious attempt to avoid UI clutter. On the other hand, if were a usability problem, then that would be something else altogether.
  3. While I know that jefito doesn't like the "+1" posts, I don't see any harm, and potentially some benefit. I tend to think that posts containing only "+1" or "bump" as weak ("Is that *all* you have to say about the topic?"); they don't do much for me but add noise. And it's not just me: http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=17008&p=83247&hilit=bump#p83247. To excerpt:
  4. Ah, I see the New Note menu; no wonder I missed it: I always use "Ctrl+N" to make new notes, or the right-click / "Copy Note" method to make a note from a template. I can see that the method that you propose would probably be useful, but then you'd need a way to prompt for a note to use as the template; there is no way currently to designate notes as template notes, since you can use any note as a template. As a point of reference, Copy Note does allow you to maintain tags and created/updated dates.
  5. Are you talking about a specific client? If so, you might be better served by posting in the specific forum for that client. I don't see a "New Note" tab in the Windows client, which is what I mainly use, but I can use any note as a template, by right-clicking on is, and selecting "Copy Note...".
  6. "+1" posts may be noticed by Evernote staff, but traditionally, at least according to Dave E, they're not tallied, so that may have little effect, particularly if that's the only content in the post. Of course, if you have a significant new insight on why a new feature might be added, then sure, add that, but I think that this issue's pretty clear, and I think that it's probably sitting on a priority list somewhere, waiting to be implemented. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother.
  7. This isn't a tech support forum; it's a user forum, although sometimes Evernote folks do provide that here. If you want tech support, you should file a support inquiry.
  8. I think that the only way is to export the note to HTML or .enex format, and hand-edit the table markup, then import it back in again.
  9. Do you have the "Hide Unassigned Tags" setting enabled. If you do that, then you should get that tags only used in the notebook. Right click on the Tags header in the tag tree, and select "Hide Unassigned tags". Do you mean something like Outlook does with labels? That would be an big step; there's currently no group-by functionality in the various note views; it's currently only straight sort-by. Not quite sure what you're asking for here. You can organize tags in a tree. Works fine. What some people also want is that the search honor the parent/subtag relationships.
  10. There is a great deal of discussion on both of these topics (the latter in particular); please feel free to search the forum for it. In truth, I tend to like tags as they are -- they're very flexible, and I prefer to not need to add another set of items that I need to keep track of. I have some doubts that "many, many" users really need this capability, at least not by my reading of the forum discussions anyways. I am also OK with retaining the current non-semantically hierarchical tag design, through I can see the benefit; instead, I once proposed some operations that would make it easier to construct tag hierarchies that are more than structural. On the whole, I don't have much need for that sort of thing, and indeed, the way that I use tags would be awkward were semantic hierarchies universally applied. But hey, that's just my take on the Evernote way...
  11. Depends on which valuation you use: http://arstechnica.com/apple/guides/2011/08/does-this-metric-make-my-company-look-big.ars.
  12. You can stop complaining now; you've been apologized to, and assured that they're going to fix it. Or isn't that enough?
  13. You can use a search term of "tag:*" to find all tagged notes. Similarly, "-tag:*" will find all untagged notes.
  14. Yes, that's what the '@' in the '@Star' tag does as well. And tags can be used fluidly -- this is more like I use my '_Todo' tag: I add it when I think that a note is of current interest, and remove it if not. Further tags mark the context (e.g. 'Personal'. 'Work'. etc.). I use this all the time, and it works pretty well for me; if I want something recently viewed, I can always use the history functionality, as described above. They're having a tough enough time putting in a Due date (or Subject date) field.
  15. Yes, this has been requested before (and was implemented in earlier versions of Evernote). The desktop clients, at least, allow you to invoke an external editor to do the rotation and resizng (and annotation, etc.). Can't speak for the mobile clients. Please search the forums for prior discussion.
  16. It is not possible, at least at this time. Couldn't tell you whether it's being considered for implementation or not. There's been prior discussion in the forums on this topic, if you care to search for it.
  17. [You seem to have posted this request in at least two places.] Currently there's no way to have Evernote do this automatically -- you need to perform some action yourself. Probably applying a special tag would be sufficient -- I have one named '@Star' for that purpose, though it turns out that I rarely use it. Also, in the Windows client (maybe others), you can move through your note visit history by using Alt+LeftArrow or Alt+RightArrow. Links to the notes themselves are visible by clicking and holding down the mouse button over the two left and right arrow icons in the toolbar. The note history is now retained between Evernote sessions (i.e., if you do a File / Exit, you lose the settings, though just clicking on the [x] close button will keep part of Evernote in memory, and the history will be retained).
  18. Well, welcome, Geoff. Step out into the light!
  19. Ha, you busted me: I missed that this is in the Android forum, and was posting about what the Windows client does. It was me that was missing something, and I do apologize for the confusion. I still think that a user-configurable view would be handy, particularly for the devices with smaller screens -- it would make it easier to use what's important to you. That being said, I use the List view on the Windows client almost exclusively.
  20. The thumbnail view doesn't include any text from the note, just the title. That's the Snippet view that you're talking about, and that view does include tags. The Snippet view uses the full width of the view area, so there's room for a fair number of tags; the Thumbnail view uses less, so those who use long tag names or have a number of tags would lose significant tag information. Anyways, as I said, way to allow you to select what you want to see (maybe via a custom view) would be a nice addition.
  21. Yes, and you'll find them if you search the forum, for "due date" or "subject date", most likely.
  22. Erm... Syntax error, line 1: expected ';' before ')' Maybe you need syntax checking too...
  23. I think that you're asking for two separate things: one is the ability to arbitrarily order note lists, and the other is to set default sorting on a notebook-by-notebook basis. Both get asked for every so often (you can search the forums for prior discussion). I haven't seen any signs that either of these are under consideration by the Evernote folks, but they don't always discuss what they're going to roll out, though they certainly do sometimes indicate that they're interested in implementing some particular ideas. If they're gong to add either of them, they it's unlikely that they'd make it available for more money. They seem to want to keep their pricing levels as they are now: freemium and premium.
