  1. I think the generic clipper will work with IE, as well, though I haven't tried it yet. Good luck. ~Jeff
  2. I use the Chrome clipper, and it allows me to add text to the clip, as does the generic web clipper (which works in Firefox 4). You can also add tags, and specify the destination notebook. ~Jeff
  3. Pizza is the usual thing around here, for sustenance. Cots --> sleeping, not allowed... ~Jeff
  4. Are you taking into account notes that are in the Trash? ~Jeff
  5. It's not an unreasonable request, but Evernote doesn't seem to see the feature as a high priority for them. There's plenty of posts by Evernote folks on the forum that express their view; here's one: http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=11237#p64939 (found it by searching on 'security engberg'; Dave Engberg is the Evernote CTO). ~Jeff
  6. Nope, no way for the clipper to append to a particular note. You're posting in the general discussion area, and ou didn't say which client you're using, but the WIndows client does autosave. Nope, not really, unless you do it by hand. ~Jeff
  7. I'd like to add my wishes for a very happy and successful New Year to all Evernoters, and to the Evernote staff. I hope that you all enjoy it in health and good cheer! * ...raising a glass of... orange juice (OK, it's still morning here) ...in toast to the coming year... * ~Jeff
  8. Cool, thanks for the explanation. I actually got OneNote with my new desktop; I just haven't tried it out yet ~Jeff
  9. We used to have BAT files, now we have da-dada-daaaa.... Power Shell!! I think that someone on the forum has actually dome some PowerShell scripting, creating .enex files for import. ~Jeff
  10. I'm not a OneNote user, but in Evernote, tabs are already used for indenting bulleted lists. Other than that, anything that helps improve table creation/modification/navigation/decoration would be welcome. ~Jeff
  11. But really, how many recipes for cumin waffles does one man need? (actually , I clip recipes too) My main uses: * For work: - Each week I make a new desk diary note, which contains daily records of tasks (they're usually bug ticket #'s and descriptions) I've work on. This all feeds an online timesheet that we submit on Mondays, and once all supervisors have approved, I clip the timesheet and append it to the desk diary note. If there note cloning were ever added to Evernote, this would be the place where I'd use it the most. - Each separate large-scale project that I work on typically runs on a 2-week deliverable cycle (it's 'agilistic'!), and we have weekly meetings that track each gen's goals (again, usually tied to bug ticket numbers). I keep a single note for the project that tracks the weekly meetings, progress, what have you. - Each task that has a large enough scale typically gets its own note where I can work up overall design, research, code references & snippets, and other considerations. - I clip web research for tasks I am working on, as well as other development related articles. * Personal: - I clip articles for things I'm interested in: recipes, bicycling (mainly exercises and bike repair information), hand percussion, travel, personal finance, consumer goods research, and of course coffee. I have a long-term goal of transcribing all all of my hand-written rhythm arrangements to Evernote, but that's going to be a work in progress for some time. I know I could scan them in, if I had a scanner (and maybe I'll do that eventually), but I like the idea of having text versions. - I also tend to clip order confirmations. ~Jeff
  12. I agree that that seems a bit inconsistent, and a way to specify All Notebooks would be useful. ~Jeff
  13. There is no way in the grammar to specify all notebooks; you may only specify a single notebook using the 'notebook:' search term. For saved searches, at least in the Windows client, the saved search takes as its context the currently selected notebook or "All Notes" if that's selected, unless the saved search has its own 'notebook:' term, in which case, that overrides the current setting. Also in Windows, searches triggered via the "ENScript shownotes /q" command appear to take all notebooks as the default context, unless the query includes a 'notebook:' term. ~Jeff
  14. I'm pretty sure those are in the works; not sure when they might be delivered, though. ~Jeff
  15. It's not clear how RTF would be any better than the HTML used in ENML. It's really how the formatting is implemented in the user rendering of the note, and what formatting commands are made available. The RTF or NTHL is just behind-the-scenes representation for the most part. ~Jeff
  16. You might want different default font selection or size on different devices, due to device differences. Other than that, it's my feeling that updates shouldn't mess with user settings, if at all possible. I don't need it to sync those settings to other devices. ~Jeff
  17. Yep. That's the way it works with Evernote. You store a copy of a spreadsheet in Evernote, or you store your spreadsheet in the file system. If you want to keep it in Evernote, then you can edit it by double-clicking on it, or right-clicking and using "Open with...". Actually, it is a table, at least in my experience. When copied from Excel, You can add a column or a row, and more to the point, if you export it to Evernote's .enex format (a subset of XHTML), you'll see that it's stored as an HTML table. That sure seems like a bug/misfeature: table selections should be handled as subtables, not as a stream of cells. I think that the Evernote folks would agree that table handling and rendering could/should be imroved. I also think that they'd want you to be happy with what they provide, and if not, then hopefully you find something else that works for you. Good luck. ~Jeff
  18. I make suggestions like this mainly because you can do it now, and fairly easily, rather than wait for something that Evernote may or may not implement. It's a fair feature request otherwise. ~Jeff
  19. If you can write them in plain text (OK, Unicode text), Evernote should be able to handle them; however, I think that search is based mainly on alphanumeric characters, so math notation would probably not be searchable. ~Jeff
  20. 'Whinging' is also used in England, familiar to all of us American PBS watchers. ~Jeff
  21. The answer that BurgersNFries gave still holds: Evernote isn't able to import CSV format, at least directly. A third-party application might not be hard to make, as CSV is not hard to parse; a converter to .enex files (Evernote format) seems feasible. ~Jeff
  22. There are already a couple of hotkeys that will bring up Evernote, one to start a search (Win + Shift + F) and one to open a new note (Ctrl + Alt + N); there may be one that just brings up Evernote, but I don't know what it is. If you want a specific hotkey to do that, you might want to look into the AutoHotKey utility: http://www.autohotkey.com/. ~Jeff
