  1. I forget whther you need to install this yourself, but you can find it in the Chrome web store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pioclpoplcdbaefihamjohnefbikjilc. ~Jeff
  2. Saved searches provide much of the same functionality as the "smart collections" you describe, except that they are not nestable (which would be keen, I agree). ~Jeff
  3. Have you tried re-installing? I mean, you'll need Evernote.exe and all of its friends to be somewhere on your drive before you can run it. You may want to make sure that your database it backed up. Look in your Local Settings\Application Data\Evernote directory for any .exb files and back them up. ~Jeff
  4. The clipper options; in Chrome, right click on the Evernote icon, and select Options... ~Jeff
  5. You'll need to point the shortcut to the location where Evernote is actually installed. The installer should have done that, so that sounds like a bug to me. ~Jeff
  6. Gee, that's what I usually do. How about if you select the note, and press Ctrl + Alt + T. That should bring up the Assign Tags dialog. Check the Hide Unassigned Tags checkbox, and then uncheck the tag that you want to remove. Does that work? ~Jeff
  7. Really enjoyed the latest Blogcast (Phil speaking at LeWeb), an interesting story and an interesting business. Oh, and thanks to the Windows devs for delivering the new multistate Note Info -- it gives me the note tags (and source URL) info, which is what I want to see, while leaving out authior and Created and Updated dates, which I usually don't need to see. ~Jeff
  8. Maybe that's the real reason you don't turn the EN ads off. :shock: *** busted *** ~Jeff
  9. I'm so lazy, I am going to wait until note links are supported... ~Jeff
  10. My tolerance for advertisement must be pretty high, since I leave it on even though I have a premium subscription. Either that or my observational skill are pretty low... ~Jeff
  11. The OCR'd text is not available, for export or at all really. The OCR is used to build up an index for searching, and includes alternative matches for text in the note, rather than being a literal rendering of the note text. If you want to see what's generated, you can (if you're on a desktop client) export your note to Evernote (.enex) format, and look for the tag, which signals the start of the text recognition section; the tags within describe the recognized text and its location in the image. ~Jeff
  12. There's no need to bump your own posts. There is other discussion on these issues, which you can find by searching on '4.1 prerelease', or something similar. ~Jeff
  13. Are you referring (e.g., Win 4, Mac, Android, iphone/iPad/iTouch, etc.) to a specific client? You might do better to post in the appropriate forum. ~Jeff
  14. The Evernote Elephant appears in this article that I spotted on BoingBoing: http://www.boingboing.net/2010/12/09/iphone-baby-quilt.html. Nap time!!! ~Jeff
  15. Dave Engberg has said on a number of occasions that note links are in their plans (forum search on "note links" can give you some of the threads, if you're interested). No delivery date specified as far as I know. ~Jeff
  16. So I have five checkboxes in my note, plus some other information, and a couple of screen caps. What bits of the note get sent to Toodle-Do? Is that an automatic operation, or do I need to make selections, etc.? Then, maybe I edit the task on ToodleDo. And then how do you reassemble them on the round-trip back from ToodleDo? I think that this would be pretty tricky, with a lot of room for user confusion. ~Jeff
  17. This is a user forum, not a technical support forum, though sometimes Evernote staff and users do help with support questions. If you need to file a support inquiry, you can do so here. In the meantime, you may be able to get by using the web interface. ~Jeff
  18. That's a nice idea, but checkboxes can appear multiple times in an Evernote note, and therfore don't map cleanly to single ToodleDo (or Remember the Milk) tasks. ~Jeff
  19. What would you base the hierarchy on? Isn't what you're looking for the same as adding folders, which doesn't seem to be something that Evernote is interested in? Or would you want a scheme based on currently available fields (a la group-by in MS Outlook, maybe)? Evernote's already a killer app, in my opinion. Maybe, but Evernote does pretty well with tags and searches. If you say so. Evernote certainly has the technical chops to do it, but I think that it's more a matter of the organizational design that they choose to employ. ~Jeff
  20. Maine is definitely a function-over-form kinda state, but even so, Evernote (for Windows) is one of the prettier apps that I use on a regular basis. Beats heck out of Visual Studio anyways... ~Jeff
  21. I'll have to check that at work tomorrow -- I'm running Chrome 8 here at home, but it the clip window was definitely the skinny one while I was at work. ~Jeff
  22. Sorry Dave. I was so well-behaved earlier in the day, but it's late and my keenly honed judgement is slipping a bit. ~Jeff ~ backing away slowly from the thread... ~
  23. Edit: [Note] Just set up your temp directory as an Evernote import folder. You get to keep all logs, compiler temporaries, installer detritus etc., fill up your Evernote account, *and* it'll keep your temp directory nice and clean!! Don't forget to enable the Subfolders setting. ~Jeff
  24. But that's only 36.36 notes per person. C'mon, people! Get clipping!!! ~Jeff
  25. There's plenty of debate on the tags-vs-folders thingy. Bottom line is that folders just are not coming any time soon, as nearly as I can tell. Notebooks are useful for gross partitioning of notes, and also for being the minimum unit for sharing notes, and for keeping notes local. Stacks are useful mainly for managing lots of notebooks. But if you really want to get anywhere with Evernote, you really need to come to terms with tags. The tag hierarchy is mainly for organizing large numbers of tags (there are 10,000 max at this time). It's primarily visual,rather than being an inheritance-based hierarchy. I think of tags as adjectives: they describe your notes, rather than forcing then to live in some kind of structure. Like adjectives, they can be strung together to define smaller and smaller classes of objects, which makes them very flexible. I use the tag hierarchy to describe the tags, not the notes that the tags might apply to. Example: I have a red, round ball, and a big, red barn. That's three tags: 'red', 'round' and 'big'. The 'red' that I use to describe my ball is not distinct from the 'red' that I use to describe my barn. I may not need add tags for 'house' and 'ball' (these are the equivalent of notes in Evernote); just searching on tags 'red' and 'round' may sufficiently narrow my world down to where I can easily see my ball. For example, to make a hierarchy of my tags, I might use: Colors --> - red - green - blue, etc Shapes --> - round - square, etc. Sizes --> - big - small, etc rather than something that you are trying to do (and can't be done in Evernote because tags are unique): Toys --> - balls --> -- size -- color -- shape, etc. - kites --> -- size -- color -- shape, etc. Dwellings --> - Houses -- size -- color -- shape, etc. - Caves --> -- size -- color -- shape, etc. - Barns --> -- size -- color -- shape, etc. The web clipper allows you to capture only the link, and not the content. ~Jeff
