  1. Most, if not all, of these items have been discusses/requested/lamented/etc. elsewhere in the forums, some of them extensively. Search the forums for more detail. Not sure where Windows "Send to" is. I think they're tending to shy away from special handling of these file formats. PDFs, images, sure. But MS-specific file types, maybe not so much, due to cross-platform considerations. The new note link facilities will probably make at least back/forward operations happen, per a recent post by Phil Constantinou. Very commonly requested/discussed. Not sure when it will happen, A frequent request. It will almost certainly happen. Not sure why this would be useful. Example?
  2. OK then: useful to know anyways.
  3. Evidently it already searches through tags, at least on the Windows desktop. I believe that that's limited to just note titles. Easy enough to test. Pick a word that appears in a number of note titles and create a tag with the same name. Tag a note that does not contain that word in its title. Do an intitle: search on that word, and the note that you tagged with your new tag should not appear. Apparently they've been doing this behind our backs all this time. So maybe not negligible, but probably not particularly noticeable either, at least at human speed (the speed at which that we interact with the UI).
  4. I didn't know that matching tags would be found as well. That's useful -- thanks.
  5. I didn't see anything in amer's suggestions that would slow down the raw search speed...
  6. Oddly enough, I have a recipe for SPam and baked bean pie (it's a New England thing) from my mother. I pull it out every so often, when the occasion seems auspicious. It's been a couple of years, though, hmmm...
  7. I suppose you could send it to an account that has auto-forwarding, which could relay the email to your Evernote account.
  8. This allows you to narrow your search space to note titles; unqualified searches will search note title and content, possibly returning matches that you're not interested in. Saved searches are not workarounds, and are in fact pretty handy for persisting searches that are used often. They can also be a gateway to better (more precise) searches: start with a saved search, and add more search terms to narrow your search. That being said I think that search history would be really useful, and a way to organize saved searches would be nice to have as well. You can multi-select use the tag tree to filter your note list by tag, if you don't want to type. Again, I agree that the drop-down menu of tags-that-begin-with-x would be useful in the search bar; Evernote already uses this technique in the Assign Tags dialog (Ctrl + Alt + T).
  9. On the Windows client (I don't know if it's the same on Mac), you can edit Updated time yourself, so it's not really proof of much anything. If you really need to have legal proof of when you come up with ideas, you're probably going to need to find another way. The lawyers are still gonna get you.
  10. The behavior is by design. I've seen Dave Engberg (Evernote's CTO) post on this in the forums before; you could try to do a search to find the reasons. If I recall correctly, it's basically so that other users cannot "pollute" the tag space of the person sharing the notebook with external tags.
  11. We wouldn't want you to come back thinking we haven't upheld the high standards that we've become known for...
  12. For a workaround to this, try "Hotel Pap*"
  13. As it happens, Latin lives on, in the form of the modern-day Romance languages... It never died; it just changed... I hate to say it, but centuries of language evolution has made it just as potentially obfuscatory as ever it was. I see no hopes that ambiguity will magically vanish any time son.
  14. OK, thanks for the correction, metrodon.
  15. TO amplify metrodon's answer a bit: the Evernote note that you clipped from the web site is derived from the HTML text that makes up the web page. It's a copy, and not a screen shot, and Evernote doesn't monitor changes to the page.
  16. I don't know exactly how it works in Mac-land, but in Windows, there is a menu option (Tools / Import Folders...) that allows you to set up folders for automatic import into Evernote, meaning that you put a file in the folder, and Evernote imports it automatically. You can set it up to import to a specific notebook, and also you can choose whether Evernote deletes the file from the import directory after importing it.
  17. You can't search multiple arbitrary notebooks, but you can search multiple notebooks in two specific ways: * All Notebooks * Searching on a stack will search all of the notebooks of the stack
  18. The Evernote Windows desktop client won't import HTML files directly using File / Import (it's looking for .enex files), but the the Import Folders facility will import HTML files just fine, or you can always drag'n'drop an HTML file from Explorer into Evernote.
  19. Oh. My. God. You really don't get it... I really do get that your feature request has merit. I just don't think that it's as important as you seem to believe, particularly since there's a workaround (i.e. cut'n'paste). It's still allowed for users to have differences of opinion, last time I checked. It'd be OK to keep the melodrama down to a dull roar...
  20. I believe what metrodon is saying -- though somewhat laconically -- is that what you feel is an oversight might actually be a conscious design choice on the part of Evernote. Your right to voice your opinion is not in jeopardy; nobody's attacking you. Surely another user offering an alternate view from yours shouldn't be seen to be threatening...
  21. Ctrl+Shift+C adds a checkbox. Or use the checkbox tool in the note editor. This is a knowledge base item; see this article: https://www.evernote.com/about/kb/article/windows-keyboard-shortcuts?lang=en
  22. It helps other to help you better if you say what you are trying to do, rather than leave it open-ended.
