  1. Hmmm, I think it's to protect Evernote *from* our (bad) data... ~Jeff
  2. .enex files are in ENML, Evernote's XHTML subset. As such, you can edit them in a text editor. Otherwise, the only viewer that I know about would be Evernote itself. ~Jeff
  3. If you set up a saved search with a notebook/tag/stack/whatever specification. that should work fine for what you're describing, except for the bit where you want it autoloaded when you start up (though you could use ENScript to set up a shortcut that does exactly that). Anyways, run your saved search, then to narrow things down, type in additional search terms. Have you tried it? ~Jeff
  4. I think that the search grammar only allows you search one notebook at a time, shared or not; however, as you note you can search across all notebooks, and in addition, you can search across a stack of notebooks, using (I think) 'stack:"stack-name"'. ~Jeff
  5. I'm not sure if this recent Evernote blog helps, but give it a read: http://blog.evernote.com/2010/12/16/making-the-transition-from-delicious-to-evernote/ ~Jeff
  6. *sigh* You do NOT go to McDonalds for lobster (OK, maybe in Massachusetts you do *snicker*). You go to Shaw's, or Harraseeket, or Red's. Or you ride 100 miles on your bicycle. ~Jeff
  7. An outing? Sounds like fun. The crabs hereabouts are not worth talking about that much; we do have this other shellfish that people seem to like, though. ~Jeff
  8. OK, my intuition was wrong; sorry about that. You should be able to resort to jbenson's method of saving the text of your search in a notes, then copying and pasting into the search field. Awkward, I know. ~Jeff
  9. Not that I know of. Evernote stores its notes internally in an XHTML subset, which is not compatible with LaTeX (except as LaTeX is a text-based format). A premium user should be able to attach .tex documents, but you'd need an external viewer to read them. It's possible that a LaTeX-to-HTML translator could produce ENML-compatible output, which might get you somewhere, but that's way beyond my area of expertise. ~Jeff
  10. You should be able to search notebooks that are shared with you, and I am guessing that you can save a search that references a shared notebook (either via 'stack:' or 'notebook:'). It's just that you don't have access to the shared searches of the person who shared the notebooks with you. ~Jeff
  11. I'm not clear on where in the UI this would go. The only Notebook dropdown list I can find is in the Search Explanation Area, and that's hidden when the Note List is hidden. ~Jeff
  12. http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=21040 ~Jeff
  13. Since notes from multiple notebooks can appear in the note list at the same time, you'd have to figure out a way to determine which sort "wins", if the sorts are different. ~Jeff
  14. So I guess my "Red Herring" tag could be seen by sharers of my Cooking notebook, even though it's also in my Espionage notebook, right? (just by using the word "tradecraft", you're showing that you must be a bit of a spy buff) ~Jeff
  15. I guess the main question would be: which Evernote client are you using? (helps narrow things down) And a second: are you running a pre-release version? If you're running a pre-release/beta version, you're going to get a lot more update notices than with a release version. Another thing to check is whether you're actually being updated; i.e., is the version you're updating to the same as the one you're updating from? A bug could be the cause of that, rather than an endless stream of actual updates. ~Jeff
  16. Sandboxes are nice... ...except when they're not... ~Jeff
  17. Just to be clear: do you mean that you are trying to set up a blank intitle: search, like a form, such that a user can click on it, and just type in term that should appear in the title? Presumable you'd see 'intitle:' in the search field, and the carat positioned after it, ready to accept keystrokes? Doesn't work that way, at least on the WIndows client. The saved search populates the search description field, but doesn't populate the actual search field, as nearly as I can tell. You're already seeing that behavior on the Mac, I'd guess -- that's why you're asking for it? ~Jeff
  18. Thanks for filling that in, jbenson2 -- I didn't dig in and do the actual searches to back up my recollections (always a dangerous thing). ~Jeff
  19. What product/client are you asking about? Might help you to narrow down your search, too, for that matter. ~Jeff
  20. This has been true for some time: http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=19805#p82249 ~Jeff
  21. Ultimately this is a Dave question, but I believe that Evernote won't throw away your notes or restrict your access to them if you lapse from Premium to freemium. Searching PDF files I am not sure of; I don't see the search index information when I export to .enex format, but I'd be surprised if this was disabled. ~Jeff
  22. If you saved the old installer, then you should be able to uninstall your current version, and reinstall the old one. Back up your database first, of course; ~Jeff
  23. Koolaid as in drinking the Phil Koolaid. He gives pretty good interview. He looks more orangey in the video than he did at LeWeb. ~Jeff
  24. I think that the Evernote philosophy is to keep things simple and clean, as much as possible. Tags are simple, flexible, and powerful; most people don't need a huge tag list, by and large. They've resisted adding folders (an easily understandable and common UI metaphor); I'd guess that they'd not be much in favor of a complicated system like the one you've suggested (such as I understand it), particularly if its usage would be limited to a small percentage of its users. That being said, your system might be ripe for a 3rd-party solution. ~Jeff
  25. Sorry, I can't help on the Mac. Windows-only. But surely, Chrome extensions -- not just Evernote's -- in on the Mac can be configured, right? If not via a right-click option, how about through Chrome's Tools / Extensions? ~Jeff
