  1. It really is tempting to click on those instructions. I did it, too.
  2. I would imagine that that would be useful for tagging existing notes as well. And I also expect that there would be requests to make it work in Search as well.
  3. Sure; Dave Engberg, when he was more in evidence in the forums, talked about this a ways back, and he didn't seem to favor the voting approach (he was familiar with the other systems). My feeling is that by-and-large, Evernote sets their main priorities on their own, taking into account a number of inputs, including these forums (but not the +1's); they have their long-term vision, and will add features that tend to support that. That's not to say that user feature requests aren't welcomed or heeded; they just need to work their way through the prioritization, just like anything else, and that almost always takes some time for those features that make the cut. They've also said that they will be replacing this forum with something new, but no timetable for that has been released, nor what the new system will be.
  4. Evernote rarely gives out its feature roadmaps, for either premium or premium customers, with few exceptions that I can remember over the past couple of years. I think that the value proposition is that if you find the premium features worth it to you, then go premium. If not, stay freemium, or find a different app...
  5. Evernote staff read everything here, as best as I have been able to determine. They don't implement everything, though, nor do they always reply.
  6. There's no way to do this automatically that I know of. But why not just clip it in the first step, when you have the URL at hand, rather than emailing it to yourself? Do you not have Evernote available at those times?
  7. I've thought that myself for awhile, and have suggested it in the forums at least once. Someday, maybe...
  8. That's a nice catch, on the Web side of things.
  9. 'Starring" an item in Google Reader did make it to my Evernote database, just with a lag. They check their triggers every 15 minutes, then it needed to sync down to my desktop.
  10. Sounds like the kind of corner case that the devs would be interested in; I'd file a support inquiry.
  11. Pretty cool and easy to figure out service. They need to weed out their recipe; how many Starred-item-in-Google-Reader to Evernote versions do we really need?
  12. Yep. That's how it works on the Windows client as well.
  13. The move and expand/shrink selection tools seem to be working for me (Win 7/64, Chrome 13.0.782.220 m). Cool stuff!
  14. Hmmmph, more color stuff. Well, we know they've been working on that, on at least one platform, so it's probably on its way for others...
  15. First, which client (Windows, Mac, Web, iPad, Android, etc.) are you running on? (It's usually better to post in the forum appropriate to your client) On the desktop clients (Windows, Mac), you can sort your notes by Note title. If your contact notes have titles of , , then that should work. Other clients, I am not so sure about.
  16. No worries... this is an open forum; your opinion is just as useful as anyone else's.So just colors (and possibly icons) for notebooks, tags and saved searches, but not notes? That doesn't sound like an unreasonable request. I don't know of any plans to add color-coding Evernote in that manner, but hey, over the next 100 years, you'd think they might get around to putting something like that in somewhere along the way. Thanks.
  17. No, not that I know of. And they are notebooks, not folders Yes it does. On WIndows, it asks first, and will move deleted notes to the trash. You are probably looking at Snippet View. You should be able to choose List View. In Windows, it's View / List View.
  18. In the Windows client, at least, the starting condition seems to be persisted from the exit state, that is, on startup, the context seems to be the same as when I exited Evernote. It may be a simple notebook selection, or it may be a saved search, but from what I can tell, it's pretty much the same as it was when Evernote was shut down (except maybe for Attributes selection). List view sort order is maintained, even, as nearly as I can tell, the last note selected. I know that some of this is persisted in the Windows registry (note list state), but I'm not sure where the rest is stored. So it sounds like my experience is different fro yours. I'm not sure why that is. We occasionally do get reports that the note list state is not persisted, but I've never come to understand how that could be.
  19. The client isn't specified here, but just to be clear, in the Windows client at least, sort order is not a notebook-dependent setting, it's a global setting. In other words, you set sort order for one notebook, and switch to a different notebook, and that sort order remains enabled. My experience is that that setting persists between invocations of Evernote.
  20. There is no optimal-for-all users approach. It's really what works for you, so long as you play by the existing rules. BurgersNFries' approach is basically what I would do; I worry less about hierarchy, and more about description. There is no semantic hierarchy in the tagging system; the tree structure is for organizational purposes (the "tree metaphor" as you call it is plenty real, but it 's not meant to express hierarchy). But your approach is not uncommon either; user jbenson2's system is a notable example. You may think it a lot of work to tag each note with a number of tags, but as you point out, it's a lot of work as well to rename tags in your system for a simple client name change, probably a lot more work, whereas it's easy in my system; just change the name. And one thing that the current tag system can do that might be hard for a strict hierarchy: you can express a relationship between client1 and client2 easily, but tagging with both. Re notebooks (not folders) / stacks: I don't really use them heavily. One main notebook for work and personal stuff, one for test scenarios of Evernote functionality, and one small one for note templates. One stack for notebooks shared by others. Notebooks are also the atomic unit for maintaining local notes in desktop clients (i.e. notes that do not sync to the cloud). Again, there is no one best way to do this. There is a fair amount of discussion on the topic in the forums (tags vs. hierarchy), and it may be worth you searching it out. There are also suggestions for ways that might make it easier for folks who want hierarchy to operate (I think that enhancing search would help).
