  1. This isn't really my case, though I seem to have taken up the cudgels, foolhardily or not, but I'm guessing that someone who encrypted an image wouldn't want it to be seen as an image on any client, unless it were decrypted. In other words, when I encrypt some text, it appears as a button that I can click on to decrypt the text and make it visible to me, and I'd expect a similar behavior with an encrypted image. Makes me wonder whether there would be a problem distinguishing between an encrypted image and a normal image in the ENML. But no big deal; it's something I never needed myself, and there's a workaround, so I'll just let this one sit... ~Jeff
  2. The methods that you guys have said are encrypting them within a container and not encrypting the image itself on it's own, as I said in my previous post. For example, text itself is encrypted because it is relatively easier to encrypt the letters of the alphabet with a key compared to possibly millions of pixels within an image. Again, text is no easier to encrypt than binary data; it's all just a string of bits (or bytes) to the encryption routine. That there may be more pixels is a different issue; there may be a large amount of text as well -- that's just linear scaling. And all of that applies to text or images within a container: Evernote already does text; it could as easily do images, unless there's some deeper implications that Dave didn't specify. Yes, the fact that you can't OCR encrypted images is known and understood and has been mentioned in this thread previously. For that matter, you can't index encrypted text on the server side anyways, since they can't decrypt it: only you can. The same would apply to images: only you know the key, so only you can decrypt. ~Jeff
  3. OK, 'm gonna need you to concentrate on shared notebooks for the Windows client just now. ~Jeff
  4. No problem. I think that Dave Engberg has talked elsewhere about the 100 notebook limit being set somewhat arbitrarily, and that eventually they'll raise it. I couldn't find the post, where he talks about this, though. ~Jeff
  5. ??? Certainly you can encrypt images. You can encrypt anything digital -- they're just strings of bits. I think that what Dave is getting at is that once you've encrypted an image, the OCR software can't get at it, but then again, the search indexing also can't take into account encrypted text, so maybe there's a deeper issue as to why Evernote seems reluctant -- currently -- to add this. ~Jeff
  6. I think that they have a legalistic 'out' on Linux, since you can still use the Web to access your notes. After all, it doesn't say "works natively"... ~Jeff
  7. Notes in different notebooks are discrete and separate, so if you copy a note from your unshared notebook into your shared notebook, it will truly be a copy: i.e., edits to either note will not affect the other one. ~Jeff
  8. The tag limit is 10,000, I believe. ~Jeff
  9. My guess is that the answer shouldn't be too surprising: the resources to do a Linux app, vs. the potential market share gain. It should be no secret that Evernote in its heart would like to support every platform that there is, including Morse code and that CP/M machine you have mouldering down in the basement behind that old Nordic Trak machine, but they do have limits on their resources. Potential market share is limited so my feeling is that Linux is a bit down the list. Besides, with a published API, and that can-do Linux spirit, maybe a third-party developer might want to take up the cause... ~Jeff
  10. I'd like to raise the stakes on this one. I didn't use Evernote in the good old days of wine, roses and autotagging (i.e. I don't know exactly how autotagging worked), but I do use GMail, and one of its best features is its ability to set up filtering rules based on various email criteria (I do this in Outlook a lot as well). I want to be able to easily and automatically categorize my notes as I gleefully fling them into the gaping maw of the that omnivorous, information sucking (hoovering for our British cousins) beast that Evernote is at heart. Let me control what notebook to route my note to, what tags to apply, and whatever other metadata to be set, based on note content, title content, note source, my location or whatever else makes sense. We should be able to apply this as notes come in to the system, or an an ad hoc basis, to make mass note management tasks easier. Maybe this is n not needed now, but in the future, when note volumes for folks like BurgersNFries or jbenson start to exceed the 100s of thousands, this might come in handy. I promise not to say 'I told you so'. ~Jeff
  11. Per Dave Engberg: "We don't yet have options to configure the format for notes printed from Evernote, but this is on our list of planned improvements." In general, Evernote does not give out release dates for features. They're currently working on a new version of the Mac desktop; it's in Alpha currently: http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=19967. I didn't see anything about printing options there, butthat doesn't mean that they won't be included in the Mac 2 release. ~Jeff
  12. I think you're looking for this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8381/. ~Jeff
  13. Are you replying to anyone in particular here? It's hard to tell, because you didn't specify, especially when you used the pronoun 'you'. If you're referring to my posting of an article that's related to the topic of what to put in and what to leave out of applications, it's not really an argument for or against this particular feature, and neither was my posting of the article. I found it interesting in the context, that's all. If you don't find it to be topical, then it's ok to ignore it; if it's a springboard for discussion, here or in another thread, then that's fine too. ~Jeff
  14. A somewhat apropos (and interesting, at least to me) article on the topic of determining the right set of features for an application: Rands in Repose: The Art of Not. In the spectrum ranging from Ronco-style do-it-all apps (it's a toaster! it's a vacuum cleaner! it's a it's a large particle collider! See also Tom Waits' 'Step Right Up') to extremely simple does-one-thing-but-does-it-well apps (e.g. iPhone Cowbell app? Pet Rocks?), where do you draw the line? ~Jeff
  15. Nope. The only workaround that I can think of is to copy a piece of text with the formatting that you want (one character should do it), and paste it in to the place that you want to use the formatting, then type what you want. Then go back and delete the piece that you pasted. For example: Here's my starting point: "Here is my text with fancy styling. I want the same fancy styling " Pick up the 'f', and paste it at the end of the second sentence: "Here is my text with fancy styling. I want the same fancy styling f" Type the rest of your text: "Here is my text with fancy styling. I want the same fancy styling fhere." Delete the pasted bit: "Here is my text with fancy styling. I want the same fancy styling here." But there's no way to apply a formatting style to an existing piece of text that I know of. Not up to me. It'd be a nice touch, though. ~Jeff
  16. Suggestions: * If the 100 notebook is really a problem, you could use two notebooks: 'Active Projects' and 'Inactive Projects'. Create your project notes in 'Active projects', and then the project is closed, move those notes to 'Inactive Projects' * Identify notes for a particular project by adding a tag with the project's name, and tag the project notes with it. * For tasks, tag is with, say 'Task', and to assign to someone, tag the task with the assignee's name. There's no problem with making comments on the item; it's just a note. * Want to track status? Add a new set of tags for status, e.g. 'StatusPending', 'StatusComplete', whatever your system uses. Tag tasks as appropriate. To find all notes in your project, including tasks, use search: 'tag:MyProject' To find all of the tasks in your project, use: 'tag:MyProject tag:Task' To find all of Robin's tasks, use: 'tag:MyProject tag:Task tag:Robin' To find all of Robin's pending tasks, use: 'tag:MyProject tag:Task tag:Robin tag:statusPending' and so on... ~Jeff
  17. I've been trying to figure a way to tie .esex, Dave's holiday card list & now cumin into a single post. But I've got nothing. Addng a little spice to our holiday festivities, is what I'm thinking. ***rimshot*** ~Jeff
  18. Either you meant '.enex' format, or Evernote's gone into an entirely different line of business. ~Jeff
  19. Not sure which client you're referring to. I know that the Windows clients have a column for tags. You might try posting into the forum specific to your client. ~Jeff
  20. We love Aaron Sorkin in our house! West Wing, of course, but Sports Night before it, and even the doomed Studio 60. We even saw his play about Philo Farnsworth on Broadway. Oh yeah, and some movie about some computer geeks... the Social Nitwits or something... ~Jeff
  21. I don't think that that's the case. No. No. And you can have it, easily, as discussed. So use the free one, as discussed. No, I don't believe that they do. That much is true, but don't do so until you get all of the facts. Jeff
  22. You can already do this in the Windows version 4, and possibly for other clients. If you have questions that are specific to a particular client, then you should post then in the specific forum for that client. ~Jeff
  23. You can use it for free, you know. It's still quite good at that price (you can still vent here, too). The Evernote CTO already has posted in this thread: http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=16876#p67649. External editors are a reasonable approach to leveraging the user's own tools (or those that come with the operating system) to accomplish various tasks; the aim is to keep Evernote relatively simple to use. Evernote staff do read all messages; stick around and you'll see. ~Jeff
  24. I don't think that a tag count search term is supported in the grammar. ~Jeff
