  1. I explained how it works on Windows (Tab/Shift+Tab for lists, and Ctrl+M, Ctrl+Shift+M for normal text), which is not a repeat of your original assertion, but only because you brought up the Windows behavior in the Mac forum. I don't use the Mac software so I can't speak to that. ~Jeff
  2. As Evernote stores their internal content its HTML-derived ENML, they do not store tab characters; instead, they emulate tab stops using elements. There's no such thing as tab stops in HTML. In the Windows client, you use Ctrl+M / Ctrl + Shift + M to indent / outdent unbulleted text (i.e., not in an evernote list, bulleted or numbered). Pressing the Tab key (or Shifht + Tab) will insert some number of elements (non-break spaces). On the other hand, in a list, Tab and Shift + Tab will indent / outdent the list at that point. ~Jeff
  3. The other word, "proprietor" also puzzled me, as I had not seen it mentioned either, and it's not in the TOS. I'm not sure what it means in the context of the discussion. ~Jeff
  4. Due dates (or 'Subject dates') are definitely on the way, note linking too, as near as I can tell. Plenty of discussion on the forums if you care to search. Also better if you post in the forum that's appropriate to the one you're using; you'll typically get better answers. ~Jeff
  5. In the WIn 4 version, List View, right click on the column headers, and you should see a column named 'Subject'. That's the one. I don't know how to make changes to it, but I do have some of them set, maybe from the 3.1 / 3.5 days. ~Jeff
  6. Seems very unlike the Evernote that I know to have "file format lock-in" (I can't even understand what the file format has to do with Note title printing anyways) -- notes are stored in a SQLlite database and the database schema is published; you can spelunk it to your heart's content). If you feel insulted, then you are surely not locked into paying for the service. It's unfortunate that you feel this way; it's probably less a matter of intention than prioritization -- they have lots of things on their plates. But it's your money... ~Jeff
  7. As discussed in the other thread, I don't do note linking at this time, and probably won't until they're supported natively. If I were to need this, I would use GUIDs, probably generated via the Microsoft developer tool, GuidGen.exe, e.g. : {77FB8881-6CBD-403e-920B-BDB3F2A14447}. As unique as they need to be for a single person, you can find them as-is by wrapping them in quotes in the search string, and you could also fabricate series by modifying the last 'n' hexadecimal digits of a base GUID, which will still likely be unique enough. ~Jeff
  8. Isn't the bcc field used to specify email addresses? Wouldn't your mail server get confused about that? ~Jeff
  9. One more thing: if you're dealing with the Mac client (which I assume, since you're using the Command key), you should probably post in the Mac-specific forum. Glad there was a solution for you. ~Jeff
  10. I think you meant hold the Ctrl key as you click on tags. ~Jeff
  11. 'Fragrant' is a term that is quality-neutral. *cough cough* ~Jeff
  12. I believe that anything other than image resize / rotation is beyond the scope of what Evernote is planning on doing, at least short term, based on what I've read from Evernote staff in the forums (and you can't even do that currently, at least in the Windows client and others). Adding annotation / decoration / highlighting of recognized text / layering operations etc. is probably something that you're going to have to do in your favorite photo editor for the foreseeable future. ~Jeff
  13. Glad to hear it. A shame that you have to do the work yourself (and the search vs. CR/LF is still a bit of an unsolved mystery) -- a good thing that you have skillz to work around the issue. ~Jeff
  14. How do you propose to select the text in the image? Wouldn't a graphical editor be more likely to be what you're looking for? ~Jeff
  15. Have you tried stripping the carriage returns, and then using an Import Folder (Tools / Import Folder...) to get them into Evernote in the Windows client? ~Jeff
  16. Again, the 99 is very likely arbitrary, but like the earlier 100 notebook limit, is a probably more function of usability concerns than anything else (they only lifted the 100 notebook limit once they added stacks, making it easier to organize notebooks). A straight list of 250 saved searches would not be particularly user friendly... ~Jeff
  17. Painful, but workarounds often are. Thanks for that. ~Jeff
  18. I've not seen this particular problem, since I don't use the Android client, but to be a little pedantic about things, the Windows-style line end is carriage return/line feed ('\r\n', or hex 0xD 0xA). I agree though that removing the carriage returns (ASCII-13, \r or 0x0D) leaves the correct Unix-style line endings in place. What seems odd to me is that when I drag a text file into the Windows client, and then export to .enex, the line breaks are converted to tags, i.e., no CR/LFs in the text portion at all. I'm not sure what the internal format is, but I believe that transfers to the server are in ENML, so I'm surprised that the source format would make that kind of difference. Still poking around at this though (while I am working on other things). ~Jeff
  19. Cool -- glad it's working for you now. ~Jeff
  20. The knowledge base is still a work in progress, but it's improving all the time. In this case, it's probably not that helpful, though. There are no folders in Evernote, but recently they've introduced the concept of Stacks, which is a way of organizing notebooks. The knowledge base doesn't cover it yet, but there's a blog post that does: http://blog.evernote.com/2010/12/15/evernote-2-0-for-mac-is-now-available/. In the Windows desktop, you can select text and press Ctrl + K to edit it as a link; I don't know if this is available in the Mac client (I looked in the knowledge base for the mac keyboard shortcut keys: https://www.evernote.com/about/kb/article/mac-osx-keyboard-shortcuts?lang=en). There's no icon to click on in either case. Also, in the Windows client, you can just type a URL (or paste it in), and it should be recognized as a link automatically (subject to certain rules) . Not sure if the Mac client does that yet. ~Jeff
  21. Neither are external links, for that matter. ~Jeff
  22. Essentially, if it can pick up XKCD text, I'm pretty much happy... ~Jeff
  23. Which version of Chrome, and can you provide a link where this occurs? I just tried this and it works fine... ~Jeff
