  1. When I select a hyperlink, I don't get the normal right-mouse click menu. For example I can't remove all the formatting with the 'Remove Formatting' option because it doesn't exist. I hope to convert the link to text, do what I want and convert it back. Even Hyperlink -> Add prompt doesn't show the link. I need to remember to copy it first so I can paste it in there. This editor is full of idiosyncrasies.
  2. If I know for sure that the note exists and I can't find it because Evernote's search is unable to find it, is exporting all the notes to HTML format and search that file using a text editor.
  3. I don't know what sort index is exactly. Evernote needs to find EVERYTHING. Just like any decent text editor does. Give me the option to do a text search without using any indexes. Just go through ALL the text. I don't care how slow it will be. I would rather wait 3 more seconds than not finding what I want. I don't have hundreds of thousands of notes where I am going to worry about performance and even then I would rather wait. Computers are very fast these days. People want to find notes. Let me worry about performance, not Evernote.
  4. Use this app to paste in pure text in ANY Windows app. http://stevemiller.net/PureText/
  5. How to move Note List from left to top? I just installed the new update and it messed with the layout. I can't find option about customizing the layout. I only see options to toggle visibility of some panels.
  6. All MS Office apps like Outlook, Word, Excel have a 'Keep Text Only, paste option. It would have been useful if Evernote had a similar option, hence my post. Most of the time I only want to paste the text without its formatting when I am copying from another source, like a web page or source code. It's not a text editor only useful option. As I mentioned in my original post, I just paste and then remove the formatting. A two step process.
  7. It doesn't work. It will still paste in bold even after turning off bold if the cursor is under a bolded line. Try it.
  8. There's no need to rewrite anything. Evernote already can export all the notes into a single file. A simple use of like Javascript's or C#'s indexOf string function can find any character or string in any text collection. Really.. it's not hard. I am a software developer. Evernote is about saving and syncing notes across devices. Searching and retrieving notes should be very flexible. I won't wait for anyone. I will just export into a single file or files into an empty folder and search manually. Most people don't have gigabytes and terabytes of notes for Evernote to depend on indexing only.
  9. No No. This is a very poor workaround. If I am pasting a note of 500 words, I am not going to create 500 tags. Evernote should be able to search like a text editor search. Just go through all the words. Indexing is used for instant searches. Machines are very fast now. Character by character searches is a none performance issue. All text editors do it and results is almost instantaneous. I would rather wait for a couple seconds to get a result than a non searchable software. Saved indexes and plain dumb searches can go hand on hand. They compliment each other. Not replace each other.
  10. If I am pasting under a bolded text which I use as title or header, the pasted text is bolded tool. Yeah if your text is all plain text, then naturally the pasted text is plain text too.
  11. If I copy some text with formatting, there's no easy way to just paste without formatting. The paste option will paste with the formatting and Paste and Match Style will paste matching the text before it (never found this feature useful). Why no Paste Plain Text? I have to paste then do another step of removing the formatting.
  12. Evernote needs to support searching for any text regardless if where the part resides. All text editors can do such searches. I use Evernote to recall any kind of text. So let me be able to do it!
  13. I have a note on sqllocaldb, a computer command. I couldn't remember the command but remember localdb. Searching for localdb returned nothing.
  14. There are many times when I can't remember the full word I am searching. Just a part of it. I really wish Evernote supports searching for partial words, regardless of which part. I have to export all notes and search them outside of Evernote.
  15. When I copy some text from a web page with a colored background and paste it into a note, I am unable to get out of that text without creating new lines with the same background color. If I hit enter, it keeps adding new blank lines with the same background color. How do I put the cursor in the area with the white background after the pasted text?
