  1. That's a great question, and along the lines of the sorts of questions that should be resolved before implementing a new feature such as this. Another: are you allowed to remove one of the notebook's designated tags? In the actual current implementation, tags are properties of notes, not notebooks, so to add this new features, you'd probably have the system add the new tags on creating a new note in the notebook, or via import, or moving a note in. So I'd guess the answer would be 'yes'. Also, what happens if you were to add a new tag to the notebook's tag set? Would it automatically apply to all existing notes in the notebook, or just to the new ones?
  2. Color me impressed. In a quick (and incomplete) test, everything seemed in order. Saved searches were a little slow to finish, and PDFs were slow to display. But I liked the zoom feature, and everything else I tried seemed to be in order.
  3. I'm not a Mac user, but it makes me wonder whether it's something about the nice color coding that's causing the problem. Seems an obvious question, but does pasting from Aptana work elsewhere?
  4. Hi baumgarr, I was tempted to try running it on Windows, but them I stopped. Has it been tried running in parallel with Evernote? I suppose that you use separate databases, so it's probably safe, except for the possibility of getting note conflicts. thanks for your work -- very noble.
  5. As far as I know, Evernote staff read all posts here, and are actually capable of forming their own conclusions about feature requests made by users without referring to replies by other posters. If someone's replies to you are a bother, then there are forum tools for dealing with that, but I think that that's rarely necessary (I've never done it). Oh, and there,s no need to worry about forum post counts -- nobody else does, and Dave Engberg has vastly more than anyone else anyways... If you have an idea to share, then share it.
  6. You're right -- I completely missed the change from shared to public notebooks. My fault entirely. Apologies. (emphasis definitely mine). The upshot, I guess, is still that in order to share a single note from a shared notebook, you still need to share the notebook that contains it. It appears that you can link to a single note in a public notebook without the recipient needing to have an Evernote account, though they can still see the contents of the entire notebook by clicking on the 'View Notes" button. Does that make sense to you?
  7. The atomic unit of sharing in Evernote is the notebook. You can't share a single note without sharing a notebook. That may not have been obvious. (emphasis mine)
  8. OK, OK, I believe now. I just had it happen to me last night. I was in the middle of something else and so I didn't notice what I did to put it into that state. I think I did something similar to csihilling to make it work again. I hope that we can find a clear cause of how to trigger this reliably.
  9. No problem -- go forth and enjoy your Evenote.
  10. wrong question, jefito! Actually, it's a pretty reasonable question. Evernote's strengths are pretty well-known: capturing and storing your stuff 'forever' and cross-platform support. It's still relatively weak at to-do list management and note editing, as compared to applications that are dedicated to those types of operations (though it's improving in those areas). It's always good to question how a tool fits your tasks/requirements. Sure but that's different than completely wiping out all of your note store, which is what causes the red circle to appear. You have an 'inbox' Notebook that needs to be kept clean, but you're also storing notes externally to that notebook. That's all fine -- I don't believe that an empty notebook will cause the red circle to appear if you have other notes stored in other notebooks; at least that's my experience. n8henrie's problem is that in order to have seen the red circle, he must have cleaned out his entire note store, and not a particular Inbox notebook (if you're storing notes for future reference, then that's why you're not seeing it). That's antithetical to the Evernote 'store it forever' concept, and I'd guess it would be a pretty rare use case, so Evernote's use-based decision to put the red circle indicator there to aid new users is a reasonable choice.
  11. For the Linux users who may not know about this, there's an open source Linux Evernote client now available -- NeverNote -- that was just written up in a Lifehacker post: http://lifehacker.com/#!5762376/nevernote-is-an-open-source-evernote-client-designed-for-linux-no-wine-required. According to the story, it's a Java app, and therefore can also work for Windows and Mac OS users as well (I haven't verified that). NeverNote home page: http://nevernote.sourceforge.net/index.htm SourceForge page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/nevernote/ Congratulations to forum member baumgarr, the NeverNote developer (and anyone else involved)!
  12. How very odd; this works fine for me in 1127835.
  13. For images, the OCR data can be seen, and edited, by exporting to .enex format, and looking for the section. Each recognized (erroneously or not) piece of text is an element, with pixel 'x', 'y', 'w' (width) and 'h' (height) coordinate attributes; nested inside at the candiate words, represented by elements. You could edit an exported .enex file and remove bad OCR guesses, or even, for extra credit, add your own items, then import it back in. This would be a workaround with the emphasis on 'work'.
  14. Seems a little antithetical to the Evernote idea to be cleaning the whole note store out at all, least of all on a regular basis. Are you sure that Evernote is a good fit with your needs? If you're doing todo list management, there are probably better options.
  15. Welcome. You might try this topic from the Knowledge Base: https://www.evernote.com/about/kb/article/additional-notebooks?lang=en. There's also a New Notebook keyboard shortcut listed in this Knowledge base topic: https://www.evernote.com/about/kb/article/mac-osx-keyboard-shortcuts?lang=en. ~Jeff
  16. I believe that that's a known behavior, related to how how Chrome manages its extensions. I couldn't find a backing post for this by Evernote staff in a quick search, though I believe that there's at least one. ~Jeff
  17. Yup, that's another way to make a tagged template, rather than using the .enex files that I mentioned. ~Jeff
  18. Yeah -- the various teams operate on different schedules, and features tend to leapfrog back and forth. ~Jeff
  19. You didn't mention which client you're talking about. There are specific forums for specific clients. Since I use the Windows client, that's the one that I will reference. You're very unlikely to get this capability. Tags are attributes of notes, not notebooks. Not sure what you're trying to do here. If you have the notes already tagged with @review, then you can easily see them all together, even if they're not in the same notebook. Conversely, it's pretty easy to tag multiple notes in one operation. You might want to check out note merging: make a selection of several notes, then right-click on the selection and select Merge Notes. ~Jeff
  20. The WIndows client does have this setting (it's a fairly recent addition). Not sure whether its appropriate for the Mac client, or whether Evernote has plans to make that change. ~Jeff
  21. Did you have a particular client in mind? Not sure that this has a lot of general applicability as many people use notebooks as containers for notes that have disparate and disjoint tags, so there would be no general tag set that would work for them. As a workaround, in one of the desktop apps you can always create a template note with the tags you want, save it out as .enex and use it to create new notes. ~Jeff
  22. Yep, it's just a matter of resources and priorities, same as most things. I'm also guessing there's an element of wishing that Apple would throw the development community a bone by making the APIs that they use external, but I guess it hasn't happened yet. ~Jeff
  23. You can export to HTML, which is a standard format, and will preserve your content. ~Jeff
  24. Uh, I was just trying to keep it light -- I didn't actually expect anyone to take the bit about The Book of Love seriously. Try reading the sentence without it. Me, I'm happy to discuss features, new, proposed features, forthcoming or whatever, here in the user forum. I just think it's a little presumptuous to expect that the CEO is going to come on here and explain why feature 'x' is delayed beyond your expectations. I mean, I'd welcome it and all -- more feedback from actual Evernote staff is always great (we get a lot as it is) and I'd probably find it interesting and all -- but it wouldn't alter how I use Evernote or advise others, since it's not in any version available for me to install. Until it ships, it doesn't exist for me, and I don't need to know why Evernote schedules things as they do, and prefer not to spend time second-guessing them. But as I say, again, I wish you good luck. ~Jeff
