  1. Just to be clear -- neither BurgersNFries nor I actually work forEvernote. We're just fans, and they let us wear the Evernote sailor suits... ~Jeff
  2. Not sure what your actual question is. Do you want to know why Stacks were implemented the way that are? OK, it's because with a max of 100 notebooks (250 now, I think), it's unwieldy to manage that many notebooks in a simple list, so Stacks are just a way to add some organizational structure to a flat list. Or is your question about the reason they're not available on all devices? OK then, the different clients are done by independent teams, and they advance on their own schedules. Stacks will most likely appear on all supported clients eventually. It's not a matter of beta testing, since you can't beta test a feature that hasn't been implemented yet. Or are you asking why the word 'Stacks'? It's just a word that has a lot of usage in the world of computers, sometimes different in different contexts (e.g. the computer stack data structure has a specific meaning to a developer). One important thing: using 'stack' is good because it's not 'folder', and these are not really folder-like in the sense that we use folders in a file system. Yes, that's right: stacks are not folders, and no-one's pretending that they are. ~Jeff
  3. Is this an image (e.g. jpeg, etc?) or an image-based PDF? ~Jeff
  4. PDF is fine, but I don't need it all the time. That being said, there are any number of printer drivers that you can use to print to PDF, so it's not a big deal. ~Jeff
  5. That was a pretty nice description, and interesting about your conversion. We live, we learn (if we're lucky). I think I'm pretty firmly in the generalist camp -- I've yet to break 100 tags; granted, I am not as prolific a note collector as say, BurgersNFries. I have to admit that I suppress a shudder when I see jbenson's tag-a-palooza stylings ( :wink: ) but I think it's a testament to Evernote's implementation that both approaches and more can be accommodated. ~Jeff
  6. Thanks for that -- I'm trying to promote it whenever I can. ~Jeff
  7. Search works this way as it makes for faster indexing. It's also more or less how search engines like Google work. That you turned up a bug is unfortunate, but us actually a good thing. ~Jeff
  8. It was right there in the Popular Articles sidebar. Stroke of luck, that, as the index is broken. ~Jeff
  9. What? How did I miss that? I am usually on the scene for those. Anyhow, earlier in the version4 beta process that highlighting technique was used, and the justification was that's how they do it on the Mac, and consistency was desired. I think it got voted off that particular island, however (I didn't care for it, myself). ~Jeff
  10. Or you could post in the prior threads where some of the same points/suggestions have been made already. Not sure what you mean -- multi-tag select is allowed on the Windows client at least (multi-selection in the tag tree via click, ctrl-click, shift-click). Or maybe I'm not understanding exactly what you're trying to do. Yes, agree that that would be useful; I've suggested that sort of operation a couple of times myself ~Jeff
  11. There's also this Knowledge Base article: https://www.evernote.com/about/kb/article/email-to-evernote?lang=en (want to make sure we plug the KB!) Curiously though, something's awry with the Categories list; when I click on one (e.g. Email), it claims there are not articles for that category. ~Jeff
  12. No way.. he's gotta hit the ground rolling, er, running! (we'll try to be gentle) ~Jeff
  13. Further: Your example list has spaces between the entries, (e.q. PREPROD_PP1); I made a note and copied the list in. I was able to successfully search for both '_PP1' and 'PP1'. So OK, I then removed the spaces (e.g.PREPROD_PP1), and while I wasn't able to find '_PP1', I was able to find 'PP1'. ~Jeff
  14. A prior discussion here: http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=19924&p=83399. ~Jeff
  15. Not everyone *needs* hierarchical folders, though I understand that it would be useful to some folks. Anyways, there's plenty of discussion pro and con elsewhere in the forum, if you care to search (I'd start with 'hierarchical folders'). If it's not working for you, then it's not working for you -- I felt the same way about the ribbon interface of the older version, and didn't really get into Evernote until the current approach took hold. But I feel that tags may be more useful than you may realize at organizing your notes. I don't miss folders in the least, even though I am very familiar with that organizational structure. Hope it all works out for you. ~Jeff
  16. http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=20260&p=84610&hilit=back+button#p84610, among others... ~Jeff
  17. Ahem -- may have gotten myself into trouble again, being as I am not a Mac user. Nevertheless, I found this post -- http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=7812&p=74362&hilit=mac+import+folder#p74362 -- that may be of help. Hope that it works for you. ~Jeff
  18. This isn't an unreasonable request, but it might not be in line with what Evernote wants to do, and even so, it would probably take some time to implement. In the meantime, it would be a good thing to get better at using Evernote as it exists today. The term 'intuitive' is used often, but a lot of what is called intuitive is really learned behavior, so the better you get at using Evernote, the more intuitive you'll find its current features. ~Jeff
  19. Not sure about the tech details of Chrome vs. Evernote, but a simpler workaround might be to define an Evernote import directory, and do your Save As to that directory. At least it saves a step, though you still need to tag it. ~Jeff
  20. The place to open a support inquiry is at the bottom of this page: http://www.evernote.com/about/contact/support/. Evernote staff do read and sometimes post in the forums, but it's not really the best place to get support from them, though sometimes another user might have a solution, so it's worth posting in the forums, too. ~Jeff
  21. My only angle is that I believe that Evernote doesn't need postit functionality to be a great program -- it already is. Feature requests like postits are valid, sure, but I feel that Evernote is better served by focusing on its core functionality (note collection, storage and retrieval), plus its ecosystem (open design, APIs for third-party developers). And they need to make nice clients, too, solid, reliable and accessible. Chasing useful, but in my opinion, niche applications like postits takes resources away from that, whereas a third-party app with great access to your Evernote note store could make this happen more easily. Anyways, that's just my opinion -- yours is just as valid, so good luck. ~Jeff
  22. This is a user forum, and not really intended as a support forum. Did you file a support ticket? ~Jeff
  23. We've had this suggestion before, back a couple of months ago. Basically means having a separate field (or index) that tracks manual order, which changes when you move notes around, possibly cascading into other notes (e.g. I have notes in order 1, 2 and 3, I move 3 above 2 and so must change both 2 and 3's sort order index -- swaps them in this case). Also gets a little messy and possible confusing if I am viewing a filtered list (via notebook or tag or saved search), and start moving things around: how does it affect other notes not currently being viewed? ~Jeff
