  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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
  7. It helps other to help you better if you say what you are trying to do, rather than leave it open-ended.
  8. I think that actually Evernote's note editor is actually pretty stripped-down; not that many bells and whistles. I just tried Microsoft Word 2010 (a program that has many bells & whistles, if ever there was one); that doesn't support the Shift+Alt+Arrow shortcut either. And you can always cut'n'paste. So I don't really see this as quite so "glaring". Sorry it doesn't match up with your needs, however; I don't mean to imply that it's a bad idea.
  9. There were many problems in 3.5; I can't speak for 3.1, since I only used it for a short time.
  10. My take on the Evangelist job it's to try to help people find solutions to their problems, and part of that is acknowledging when Evernote doesn't do what people want it to do (or Evernote's limitations, if you will), and trying to find a way to work around those situations, if it's possible. But I was pretty much doing this before I was offered the Evangelist badge, and that why Dave made the offer. In the interest of full disclosure, at the time, Dave was kind enough to upgrade me from freemium status to year's Premium subscription (I would have subscribed eventually), and later gave me several year Premium subscriptions to hand out, but other than that, I get no compensation. That's just my deal; I have no idea about anyone else, and truthfully, I don't think that it changes much in terms of my participation here. Ultimately, though, it doesn't mean that I can't criticize Evernote's programs (I have), though I tend to say things like "if Evernote had feature 'x', then that would be easier" rather than "Evernote should have feature 'x', how could they have missed this?". I really think that Evernote thinks that constructive criticism is helpful. I'm not sure if you're serious about being an Anti-Evangelist, though I can't think that this would be a title that Evernote would ever bestow on anyone. On the other hand, there is the notion of "Ombudsman" which might be closer to what you're intending.
  11. I don't know the actual requirements. One day Dave Engberg got in touch and asked me if I'd like to be an evangelist. Later, the evangelists became forum moderators, but there's at least one non-evangelist who is also a forum moderator. You could ask them...
  12. metrodon is a moderator for the forums, and an "Evernote Evangilist". But not an employee.
  13. I doubt it (though a Mac user could verify) -- this option doesn't exist in the Windows 4 client. Not sure when it vanished from the Windows line.
  14. I doubt that they find it embarrassing. If they felt that tag clouds or "advanced" tag management functionality were that important (much less a requirement), then they'd have probably put it in by now. As it is, the API allows 3rd-party developers to add in things that can be useful to some of their customers, and that's a strength of the Evernote ecosystem. I know that Evernote staff have responded enthusiastically to 3rd-party developers adding value to their platform, even to the point of baumgarr's Nevernote efforts. No embarrassment was evident.
  15. The name of the game here is that "those who make the soup get to choose what goes into it". As a designer/developer/architect, you listen to as many viewpoints as you can get, and mix that input with your own ideas, and choose what you're going to make. So yes, they implement what they want. And what's wrong with that? It's their livelihood that's on the line -- if they make bad choices, then they go out of business. For the answer to your Microsoft question, you'll have to ask Microsoft. But you can bet that they don't idly make gratuitous changes to what remains a huge cash cow for them. If you wish to change the tone of the forums, then you could always start helping people in the way that you think is better -- there's always room for good helpers... When you say "the" evangelists (which is what I quoted), that's one thing. If you were to say "some" evangelists, then that's another thing. But I can see that you get the point, and I'll try to be a little less thin-skinned, so I'll leave it there.
  16. Evernote does listen, but that doesn't mean that they choose to implement every user's suggestion. It's their design choice; it may not work for everyone, but that's OK, there are alternatives available. By the way, that's not to say that they won't change their minds about the nested folders, etc. that some of their users want, but there's been no external signals that that's going to happen (and I am not privy to inside information), and so we try to deal with Evernote as it exists today. No, most of us accept that you probably know what you want, but if that's not what Evernote offers, then you're not going to be happy. Again, Evernote is not for everyone. Frankly, if folks realize that fact earlier rather than later, that's better all around. But it's really ok to ask for features, at least in my book. Um, we "evangelists" (and that's Evernote's term) are different people. If you have a problem with an evangelist (or any other individual poster for that matter), then please address them individually. I see the good that BurgersNFries and metrodon do in the forums -- they help a lot of folks -- but I don't speak for them, nor they me. Please don't lump us all together.
  17. Attachments (except for PDFs) are generally handled by activating an external viewer. If you have a .pub or .mobi file handler installed on your machine, you should be able to double-click the attachment icon and it should come up in the appropriate reader. At least, that's the way that it works on the Windows client, and should work on the Mac client as well.
  18. I'd start here http://www.evernote.com/about/tos/, and then work on the associated links in the sidebar labelled "Company Information".
  19. That's the official response -- Dave is the CTO of Evernote. It's by design, so maybe a bug by your definition, but...
  20. Yeah, sometimes it's not always clear what to search for, though in this case...
