  1. 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
  2. http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=20260&p=84610&hilit=back+button#p84610, among others... ~Jeff
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. This is a user forum, and not really intended as a support forum. Did you file a support ticket? ~Jeff
  9. 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
  10. None of these is unreasonable, no, in my opinion. #2 is certainly reasonable, particularly for a premium user. Just out of curiosity, did you (or reck) file a support ticket, which would be the way to go, particularly for a premium user? #3 is on the list, as Dave has said. ~Jeff
  11. Word docs are treated as attachments only. If you want to see their contents, you can double-click in them in the note, or right-click / Open With. ~Jeff
  12. In Windows you could do this sort of thing by logging out of Windows and logging in as a different user, so long as you have kept the databases separate, right? So I could set up something like this for, say, my wife on the machine we occasionally share (when I let her), since it's set up with different accounts. ~Jeff
  13. Wow, that's a bit of a mystery (to me anyways). I'd say to post a sample of one of these notes, and maybe an Evernote staffer can sort it out. Good luck. ~Jeff
  14. You don't have any import folders defined, perchance? ~Jeff
  15. Just so you know, this is a user forum, and although Evernote employees read every post, they may not choose to reply to them (there's lots of us, and few of them). Suggestions and feature requests are certainly welcome, but as always, they determine which features get put in. At a guess this feature would take a fair amount of work to support across all of their platforms (new UI generally takes a lot of time to implement, relatively speaking), so you're probably not going to be seeing this anytime soon. ~Jeff
  16. Ah, I'm using Firefox 4, which is not compatible with the Evernote add-on. You might try the bookmarklet, which you can find at the bottom of this page: http://www.evernote.com/about/download/web_clipper.php. ~Jeff
  17. Ooops. :oops: ~Jeff (not to be confused with Jeffrey Lebowski, AKA The Dude)
  18. To repeat my reply to you on the same topic in a different thread: Search the forum for "rich text android" for other threads on this topic. ~Jeff
  19. Search the forum for "rich text android" for other threads on this topic. ~Jeff
  20. If by "organizing" you mean "ordering", then sure, but that's not the only meaning. But that's not what you seem to want, so good luck. ~Jeff
  21. The way that you organize notes in Evernote is via Notebooks and tags. If tabs such as you suggest are ever implemented in Evernote, it will be quite awhile, so my recommendation to you is that you need to come to terms with using tags effectively in Evernote, or else you'll be fighting it all the time. ~Jeff
  22. How are you doing your clipping. URLs are saved when you use the various web clippers (e.g. the Chrome extension and Firefox addin). ~Jeff
  23. Please see my response to you in your previous request. And please post device specific comments into the appropriate subforum. Thanks.\ ~Jeff
