  1. If you saved the old installer, then you should be able to uninstall your current version, and reinstall the old one. Back up your database first, of course; ~Jeff
  2. Koolaid as in drinking the Phil Koolaid. He gives pretty good interview. He looks more orangey in the video than he did at LeWeb. ~Jeff
  3. I think that the Evernote philosophy is to keep things simple and clean, as much as possible. Tags are simple, flexible, and powerful; most people don't need a huge tag list, by and large. They've resisted adding folders (an easily understandable and common UI metaphor); I'd guess that they'd not be much in favor of a complicated system like the one you've suggested (such as I understand it), particularly if its usage would be limited to a small percentage of its users. That being said, your system might be ripe for a 3rd-party solution. ~Jeff
  4. Sorry, I can't help on the Mac. Windows-only. But surely, Chrome extensions -- not just Evernote's -- in on the Mac can be configured, right? If not via a right-click option, how about through Chrome's Tools / Extensions? ~Jeff
  5. I forget whther you need to install this yourself, but you can find it in the Chrome web store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pioclpoplcdbaefihamjohnefbikjilc. ~Jeff
  6. Saved searches provide much of the same functionality as the "smart collections" you describe, except that they are not nestable (which would be keen, I agree). ~Jeff
  7. Have you tried re-installing? I mean, you'll need Evernote.exe and all of its friends to be somewhere on your drive before you can run it. You may want to make sure that your database it backed up. Look in your Local Settings\Application Data\Evernote directory for any .exb files and back them up. ~Jeff
  8. The clipper options; in Chrome, right click on the Evernote icon, and select Options... ~Jeff
  9. You'll need to point the shortcut to the location where Evernote is actually installed. The installer should have done that, so that sounds like a bug to me. ~Jeff
  10. Gee, that's what I usually do. How about if you select the note, and press Ctrl + Alt + T. That should bring up the Assign Tags dialog. Check the Hide Unassigned Tags checkbox, and then uncheck the tag that you want to remove. Does that work? ~Jeff
  11. Really enjoyed the latest Blogcast (Phil speaking at LeWeb), an interesting story and an interesting business. Oh, and thanks to the Windows devs for delivering the new multistate Note Info -- it gives me the note tags (and source URL) info, which is what I want to see, while leaving out authior and Created and Updated dates, which I usually don't need to see. ~Jeff
  12. Maybe that's the real reason you don't turn the EN ads off. :shock: *** busted *** ~Jeff
  13. I'm so lazy, I am going to wait until note links are supported... ~Jeff
  14. My tolerance for advertisement must be pretty high, since I leave it on even though I have a premium subscription. Either that or my observational skill are pretty low... ~Jeff
  15. The OCR'd text is not available, for export or at all really. The OCR is used to build up an index for searching, and includes alternative matches for text in the note, rather than being a literal rendering of the note text. If you want to see what's generated, you can (if you're on a desktop client) export your note to Evernote (.enex) format, and look for the tag, which signals the start of the text recognition section; the tags within describe the recognized text and its location in the image. ~Jeff
  16. There's no need to bump your own posts. There is other discussion on these issues, which you can find by searching on '4.1 prerelease', or something similar. ~Jeff
  17. Are you referring (e.g., Win 4, Mac, Android, iphone/iPad/iTouch, etc.) to a specific client? You might do better to post in the appropriate forum. ~Jeff
  18. The Evernote Elephant appears in this article that I spotted on BoingBoing: http://www.boingboing.net/2010/12/09/iphone-baby-quilt.html. Nap time!!! ~Jeff
  19. Dave Engberg has said on a number of occasions that note links are in their plans (forum search on "note links" can give you some of the threads, if you're interested). No delivery date specified as far as I know. ~Jeff
  20. So I have five checkboxes in my note, plus some other information, and a couple of screen caps. What bits of the note get sent to Toodle-Do? Is that an automatic operation, or do I need to make selections, etc.? Then, maybe I edit the task on ToodleDo. And then how do you reassemble them on the round-trip back from ToodleDo? I think that this would be pretty tricky, with a lot of room for user confusion. ~Jeff
  21. This is a user forum, not a technical support forum, though sometimes Evernote staff and users do help with support questions. If you need to file a support inquiry, you can do so here. In the meantime, you may be able to get by using the web interface. ~Jeff
  22. That's a nice idea, but checkboxes can appear multiple times in an Evernote note, and therfore don't map cleanly to single ToodleDo (or Remember the Milk) tasks. ~Jeff
  23. What would you base the hierarchy on? Isn't what you're looking for the same as adding folders, which doesn't seem to be something that Evernote is interested in? Or would you want a scheme based on currently available fields (a la group-by in MS Outlook, maybe)? Evernote's already a killer app, in my opinion. Maybe, but Evernote does pretty well with tags and searches. If you say so. Evernote certainly has the technical chops to do it, but I think that it's more a matter of the organizational design that they choose to employ. ~Jeff
  24. Maine is definitely a function-over-form kinda state, but even so, Evernote (for Windows) is one of the prettier apps that I use on a regular basis. Beats heck out of Visual Studio anyways... ~Jeff
  25. I'll have to check that at work tomorrow -- I'm running Chrome 8 here at home, but it the clip window was definitely the skinny one while I was at work. ~Jeff
