  1. I've been using Veritrope's Mail-to-EN Applescript and Red Sweater's Fastscript app for a long time and it was a fantastic solution. If you're on an email you like, just slam a hotkey (I used Shift-CMD-E) and - boom - you would instantly get a very nicely formatted new Evernote in your inbox with attachments and everything. Fantastic. just what I wanted.

    Unfortunately, it's now broken in Lion for reasons likely similar to the malfunctioning CMD-CTL-V. It's at the top of my list to get fixed, for sure... totally busted my workflow. Forwarding through Evernote's servers yields a much slower, less-complete result.

  2. I know it's early, but so far the most visible bit of "Lion-y goodness" in the beta is the new monochrome icon set ... fuzzy and unintuitive and ugly. :(

    That said, though, I really like the concept of the favorites bar -- if we're eventually able to edit it, adding saved searches and such, it will be extremely useful. Far better than the existing left sidebar.

    Probably a matter of personal taste, but I prefer it here as in Mail and Safari... the eye focuses on the content, not the "chrome", when icons and menu bars are muted.

  3. Converted over a 5000-plus note database yesterday and so far things are going well. Could just be my imagination, but start-up seems faster. Filed one minor bug but no disastrous crashes so far.

    I'm loving the better configurability of the left-hand pane and the stacks. Hopefully better organization tools will let me dump Read It Later and Starred posts in Google Reader, and just route everything into Evernote. The synchronized Shared Notebooks is going to be huge for Evernote.

  4. A very popular request and exactly the reason why I periodically scope out this forum, as well as beta-testing Evernote. I keep checking back, hoping I can see something like this, which is the last key thing Evernote needs to become my universal in-box.

    Here's another thread on the subject, which quickly turns into people requesting the ability to drag and drop Evernote docs into Omnifocus. I'm a "Things" user myself, and reaaaaally want to see this.
