  1. Oddly enough, my step-daughter attended a term there, not too long ago. She loved it. ~Jeff
  2. You should be able to export to Evernote's format (.enex) and load it into a text editor; at least you can do this on the Windows desktop client. ~Jeff
  3. Ok, that's not what I want to think about when I get in to work on Monday morning... Heh. At least it means that I am usually on my best behavior in the forums. ~Jeff
  4. I really couldn't say one way or the other, but not in 3.5 as far as I know. Maybe some of the 3.1 (or earlier) experts could tell you. Anyhow, good luck, ~Jeff
  5. Dave is always out there. In that, he's just like my mother. I think that he's posted on the caching behavior before, but I'm not an iPad user, so I can't tell you what that is; you should probably engage in some forum searching. ~Jeff
  6. And 3.1 is on life support (though a fair amount of people prefer it, for various reasons). ~Jeff
  7. It appears that you're going to get Due Dates in notes at some point. Maybe reminders to go along with them. I don't think that expiring notes would be the Evenote Way -- they are all about keeping every darn thing. Using tags to mark items as temporary is a la mode. When Due Dates arrive, you'll probably be able to search against them, similar to what you can do today with the Created date and the Updated date. ~Jeff
  8. Every new feature starts at Minus 100 Points. Except for the CEO's. ~Jeff
  9. Sorry, but I think that this sort of functionality is well beyond what you could expect from a simple note taking system like Evernote. A purpose-built 3rd-party brainstorming pad that operates as you suggest might be something that a clever programmer could whip up, but I don't think that you'll be seeing it in Evernote any time soon. just my opinion, ~Jeff
  10. The sow-now-and-reap later technique is not so bad. I use it a lot myself, though in a slightly different way: I tag early and often, but also often add a _Todo tag for notes that I want to revisit soon. At convenient momemnts, I can go back and check my _Todo notes, and re-categorize, read more carefully, etc. It's for stuff that's interesting but not my main focus, so I put them aside where they're easily accessible to look at later. Dunno, your idea is interesting, but seems like more advanced functionality. You would still need to go back and break up these notes by hand sometime (via some special operation I'd expect); I doubt that most would want this to happen automatically, as it would probably be easy to casually get things wrong, since the formatting characters are common and the parsing you suggest is a bit awkward (back-tracking? No thanks). Maybe with somewhat different format indicators, but if I were a user who typed in a a perfectly innocent note that happened to contain the magic formatting, and it all of a sudden, without action by me, my single note atomized into several separate notes, I'd be upset, once the confusion was over. Might be good third-party functionality fodder, though. ~Jeff
  11. You can always create your notes untagged, in-the-moment, and then once the moment has passed, go back and tag your new notes as appropriate. Finding untagged notes is pretty easy. ~Jeff
  12. I think you're right -- it's probably due to the number of platforms that they support, and the varied support for rich text editing across these platforms. You didn't say what platform you are talking about, but I think that Dave Engberg mas mentioned better printer support as something that they are interested in improving. ~Jeff
  13. I would guess that the answer is no, at least for the short term. Evernote is primarily a cross-platform note capture and storage mechanism, with facilities for note taking. It's not meant to be a replacement for dedicated to-do lists, project planners or mind-mappers. ~Jeff
  14. This a common request. It's not clear that this will be implemented any time soon, although the Evernote folks have said that it's of interest to them. Please use the forum search (topis: subfolder, nested, hierarchical, etc.) to find other discussions on this topic; there are many. ~Jeff
  15. Ah, now I get it. Well, hope that you had a grand birthday. ~Jeff
  16. Granted. Huh. Exactly where did I say that?. Did you not read what I said correctly? Just to refresh: The principal clause of this sentence is pretty much identical to what you said.; the parenthetical portion hints at an option that points at a possible solution that could cater to the growing population of Windows users who also use Mac, emphasis on the "maybe". I don't think I'd put myself into the position of claiming that such-and-such a UI strategy was "just wrong", unless it were actively user-hostile. In point of fact, since you didn't ask, I would advocate having all Evernote operations be available via user-configurable keystrokes, with sensible defaults for the most common ones. By the way, if you're laboring under the misapprehension that I am an Evernote employee, or have any power to kill any ideas, double-plus ungood or otherwise, I am not, and I don't. ~Jeff
  17. Wish I could, but we won't be coming out until October 20th. Until then, I'm 3500 miles away. When we're in San Francisco, I think we'll be right nearby, though (I am not the maker of travel plans in my household). ~Jeff
  18. Just read about the upcoming Evernote Scansnap Cartoon Art Meetup (on my birthday, no less). I'll be out in the California -- including San Francisco -- towards the end of October, too late to attend. I visited the Museum somewhere in the mid-90s, I think. ~Jeff
  19. If you're up to date, and you're not seeing it fixed, well then, no. ~Jeff
  20. This is a user forum. You can get technical help, make feature requests or engage in Evernote-related tomfoolery here. (we try to keep the latter to a minimum) ~Jeff
  21. Once again, the request for highlighting seems reasonable, and somewhere back aways, I think, the Evernote folks indicated that it's on their list. You can work around true highlighting (which I take to be a background color change) by modifying the text foreground color. So I believe that this thread is done for all useful purposes. ~Jeff
  22. Nope. No way to do this. Just posting here is sufficient to raise it as a feature request; the Evernote folks read all posts. ~Jeff
  23. You can organize them using the provided hierarchy. Works pretty well on the desktop clients, or at least the Windows client, which is what I use. Tags are not folders, and it's really not very useful to think of them as such. Evernote has tags, and it has notebooks. Tags are pretty much labels (you can have more than one per note). Notebooks are more like folders, in that they contain notes, but unlike computer folders, they don't nest. viewtopic.php?f=30&t=15071&p=61183#p61183 ~Jeff
  24. I remember noticing this too. I swear I posted about it, but can't seem to find the thread. Don't worry about being a picky free user; from everything I've heard, Evernote loves the free users too. ~Jeff
