  1. Rule based auto-tagging would be very helpful, something akin to Outlook or Gmail's. Never heard of any plans to implement this, though -- I've suggested it myself. Might be a great 3rd-party addition. You may not need a separate notebook for your music stuff, since you can always filter on that tag to isolate those notes, plus other criteria to narrow things down. Notes appear in one notebook at a time. You might want to look into using note linking, though.
  2. Please search the forums for "group by", as this has been discussed recently.
  3. This has been requested, possibly not in the scope of what Evernote is aiming to provide (but hey, you never know).
  4. That's good news; glad to hear it. Can't help you there, unfortunately.
  5. In the Windows client, this worked fine. Double-clicking on the image brought it up on the Windows Photo Viewer; click on the Rotate button, and exit. Comes back in the note rotated correctly. Not sure how it's supposed to work on the iOS client, though.
  6. Is the Knowledge Base article wrong, then?
  7. "Ugh" -- now there's a powerful word. It's expressive of distaste, yes. I seem to recall that you have a dislike of long words, so I thought that I'd spare you. Please read to comprehend. I never said any such thing that as you've implied, ever, in any post I have ever written in these forums. Nor did I, I just stated that if they did implement it, I would prefer that they not use predefined tag names to do it.
  8. It was my opinion way before I ever heard of Evernote, believe me, not that I need you to entitle me to it. A classic response. +100.
  9. Ugh; no magic tags, please, *unless* the proposed template recognition is based on tags that the user designates. I consider the tag namespace to be the province of the user, not Evernote. If Evernote sets up functionality based on tags whereby I can configure the tags being used to actuate it, well, OK then...
  10. You can have your email client auto-forward emails to your Evernote email (which you should have received when you signed up), if you want, but don't believe that Evernote will read your emails for you.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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:
  14. 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.
  15. 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...".
  16. "+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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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...
  21. Depends on which valuation you use: http://arstechnica.com/apple/guides/2011/08/does-this-metric-make-my-company-look-big.ars.
  22. You can stop complaining now; you've been apologized to, and assured that they're going to fix it. Or isn't that enough?
  23. You can use a search term of "tag:*" to find all tagged notes. Similarly, "-tag:*" will find all untagged notes.
