  1. The truth of the matter is that tags suffice for some, and not for others. I don't expect to see subfolders any time soon, as the Evernote folks seem to have other features at a higher priority, so those who want them can draw their own conclusions as to whether Evernote is the best product for them, or not.
  2. This is a user forum, so it's really up to us users to provide help and advice, so thanks for contributing.
  3. Yes, you can say that, and I believe that your opinion is welcomed by Evernote staff. Me, I don't really care to organize my notes in hierarchical folders, as tags are plenty for me. I understand that others want that, but I've seen no interest in providing that in anything I've read by Evernote staff, so it's a moot point for me.
  4. On the Windows client, you can find out where Evernote's data files are by clicking on Tools / Options; the General tab will lead you there. If you cancel a Premium subscription, you will still be able to access all of your notes, either via local or web client. It's your stuff.
  5. Since you posted in the General Discussion area, it's probably worth noting that the Windows client does have a nice clip screenshot to Evernote shortcut, Win + Prnt Scrn.
  6. It isn't, at least not at this time. I'm not sure how well the format would apply to the flat notebook model, but it's not a bad idea...
  7. Or make your note selection, and use Assign Tags (Ctrl + Alt + T)...
  8. I've felt for awhile that some sort of auto-tagging facility would be useful for Evernote. So long as this was for tagging on the way in, and not a constraint on notes in a notebook, it wouldn't be redundant.
  9. That's a great question, and along the lines of the sorts of questions that should be resolved before implementing a new feature such as this. Another: are you allowed to remove one of the notebook's designated tags? In the actual current implementation, tags are properties of notes, not notebooks, so to add this new features, you'd probably have the system add the new tags on creating a new note in the notebook, or via import, or moving a note in. So I'd guess the answer would be 'yes'. Also, what happens if you were to add a new tag to the notebook's tag set? Would it automatically apply to all existing notes in the notebook, or just to the new ones?
  10. Color me impressed. In a quick (and incomplete) test, everything seemed in order. Saved searches were a little slow to finish, and PDFs were slow to display. But I liked the zoom feature, and everything else I tried seemed to be in order.
  11. I'm not a Mac user, but it makes me wonder whether it's something about the nice color coding that's causing the problem. Seems an obvious question, but does pasting from Aptana work elsewhere?
  12. Hi baumgarr, I was tempted to try running it on Windows, but them I stopped. Has it been tried running in parallel with Evernote? I suppose that you use separate databases, so it's probably safe, except for the possibility of getting note conflicts. thanks for your work -- very noble.
  13. As far as I know, Evernote staff read all posts here, and are actually capable of forming their own conclusions about feature requests made by users without referring to replies by other posters. If someone's replies to you are a bother, then there are forum tools for dealing with that, but I think that that's rarely necessary (I've never done it). Oh, and there,s no need to worry about forum post counts -- nobody else does, and Dave Engberg has vastly more than anyone else anyways... If you have an idea to share, then share it.
  14. You're right -- I completely missed the change from shared to public notebooks. My fault entirely. Apologies. (emphasis definitely mine). The upshot, I guess, is still that in order to share a single note from a shared notebook, you still need to share the notebook that contains it. It appears that you can link to a single note in a public notebook without the recipient needing to have an Evernote account, though they can still see the contents of the entire notebook by clicking on the 'View Notes" button. Does that make sense to you?
  15. The atomic unit of sharing in Evernote is the notebook. You can't share a single note without sharing a notebook. That may not have been obvious. (emphasis mine)
  16. OK, OK, I believe now. I just had it happen to me last night. I was in the middle of something else and so I didn't notice what I did to put it into that state. I think I did something similar to csihilling to make it work again. I hope that we can find a clear cause of how to trigger this reliably.
  17. No problem -- go forth and enjoy your Evenote.
  18. wrong question, jefito! Actually, it's a pretty reasonable question. Evernote's strengths are pretty well-known: capturing and storing your stuff 'forever' and cross-platform support. It's still relatively weak at to-do list management and note editing, as compared to applications that are dedicated to those types of operations (though it's improving in those areas). It's always good to question how a tool fits your tasks/requirements. Sure but that's different than completely wiping out all of your note store, which is what causes the red circle to appear. You have an 'inbox' Notebook that needs to be kept clean, but you're also storing notes externally to that notebook. That's all fine -- I don't believe that an empty notebook will cause the red circle to appear if you have other notes stored in other notebooks; at least that's my experience. n8henrie's problem is that in order to have seen the red circle, he must have cleaned out his entire note store, and not a particular Inbox notebook (if you're storing notes for future reference, then that's why you're not seeing it). That's antithetical to the Evernote 'store it forever' concept, and I'd guess it would be a pretty rare use case, so Evernote's use-based decision to put the red circle indicator there to aid new users is a reasonable choice.
  19. For the Linux users who may not know about this, there's an open source Linux Evernote client now available -- NeverNote -- that was just written up in a Lifehacker post: http://lifehacker.com/#!5762376/nevernote-is-an-open-source-evernote-client-designed-for-linux-no-wine-required. According to the story, it's a Java app, and therefore can also work for Windows and Mac OS users as well (I haven't verified that). NeverNote home page: http://nevernote.sourceforge.net/index.htm SourceForge page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/nevernote/ Congratulations to forum member baumgarr, the NeverNote developer (and anyone else involved)!
  20. How very odd; this works fine for me in 1127835.
  21. For images, the OCR data can be seen, and edited, by exporting to .enex format, and looking for the section. Each recognized (erroneously or not) piece of text is an element, with pixel 'x', 'y', 'w' (width) and 'h' (height) coordinate attributes; nested inside at the candiate words, represented by elements. You could edit an exported .enex file and remove bad OCR guesses, or even, for extra credit, add your own items, then import it back in. This would be a workaround with the emphasis on 'work'.
  22. Seems a little antithetical to the Evernote idea to be cleaning the whole note store out at all, least of all on a regular basis. Are you sure that Evernote is a good fit with your needs? If you're doing todo list management, there are probably better options.
  23. Welcome. You might try this topic from the Knowledge Base: https://www.evernote.com/about/kb/article/additional-notebooks?lang=en. There's also a New Notebook keyboard shortcut listed in this Knowledge base topic: https://www.evernote.com/about/kb/article/mac-osx-keyboard-shortcuts?lang=en. ~Jeff
