  1. I remember back in the older days, users would passionately insist that Evernote employee/s would read each and every post. I just laughed at their naïveté (naivete).
  2. The ability to modify the Evernote created date is so important for my use, I start the title of my notes (even web screen captures) with YYYY MM DD format as a secondary safeguard. My title format is consistent: YYYY MM DD - Location - Subject - Person
  3. 1.) I change the created day for most of my notes. I believe the Created Date should reflect my opinion on what the correct created date should be. My opinion of what the Created Date is far more important than the date I decided to scan it or screen capture. 2.) And to be 100% sure, I use a structured note header that starts with the date (YYMMDD) , followed by location (State, City), followed by Company, followed by topic, and finally name of person involved. Example: 2021 09 15 ME Bangor - Lowes - shop for refigerator - JLB & DLB
  4. Evernote! Why? Why? Why don't you learn from your past? When I saw the possiblity of connecting my Google calendar with Evernote, I started thinking about upgrading from Legacy EN to the current version. Then the problems started appearing in this forum with silence from EN. Thank you to the other users who came up with possible workarounds: remove all other Google connections, then connect calendar, then re-enable all the other connections. And EN support does not seem to be aware of the problem or the solution. I'll continue to sit on a safer spot with Legacy EN and wait until there is a ground swell of support for the new version. (EN has sent me down this dark rabbit hole more than once in the past).
  5. I love the ability to change the date field. I collect genealogical information from the past. It makes so much more sense to change the wedding date of a relative from today's note to the actual date they got married. Ditto for their birth date and other important dates. I also change both the date and time when I create a note as my reminder for an appt or task in the future. Same applies to accumulated receipts which generally don't get scanned for several days.
  6. I remember when some Evernote power-users would almost get into arguments trying to convince me that Evernote employees read all the user comments in this forum. Sadly those days are gone. I no longer post suggestions. Any comment I post here is to share with other users who can offer work-around fixes.
  7. GBarry Product Manager posted this news: "Today we released Evernote for Windows 10.16 (v 10.16.7 build 2732)." I have sat on the sidelines with my version (309091) Public (CE Build ce-62.6.10954). Looking for opinions. Has the dust settled yet? Should I UPGRADE or STAY with my "old-faithful" version? Thank you. Windows desktop only No cell phone version No note sharing Premium - 36,000 notes Basic - 32,000 additional archived notes
  8. I often use the shortcut Ctrl ; to create a date time stamp 2021-06-05 11:03 AM to log in an action such as a follow-up call in the text of the note. I also use it when I need to document the closure of a topic. For Windows version
  9. I've been using Evernote daily since 2008. My preference is to sit on the sidelines and watch for positive user forum-comments for a month or more before installing the newest version. I have not tried the uninstall / install technique. I am up to 65,000 notes on 2 Evernote accounts. What are the advantages / safeguards of a uninstall old version / install new version?
  10. I use 3 letter prefixes for my important frequently used tags. Here are some examples: Company COM-Home-Depot COM-Walmart Family Members FAM-JLB FAM-DLB Government GOV-Maine GOV-Fed Employment JOB-Abc Inc JOB-Xyz Inc Insurance INS-Medical INS-Automobile Location LOC-Boston LOC-United-Kingdom Personal PER-Pet PER-Phone Taxes by tax year TY-2021 TY-1995
  11. I wish I could help with the survey, but due to large number of user complaints I have avoided upgrading. I have been surprised at the reluctance from some of the long-time power users to upgrade. And your comment (Seems like the powers that be aren't reading any forums...) speaks volumes about my experience with Evernote. I trust comments from other users far more than anything an Evernote employee "claims".
  12. We are well past 3 long months of waiting. How could something this important slip through the cracks?
  13. Just over 12 years ago I bought a Fujitsu S300. I got a lot of use out of it when I moved from Minnesota to Maine. Scanning was my paperless dream come true. The $267 was a great investment. But last year, I contacted Fujisu for help. Their response: "The S300 is no longer being supported and there is no official windows 10 download link for that scanner but you can try the link below for ScanSnap Manager 5.5 as it may work with your scanner." http://origin.pfultd.com/downloads/IMAGE/driver/ss/mgr/w-s1500/WinS1500ManagerV55L10WW.exe Now that I am retired and generate far less paper every day, I decided to go with an app on my phone, so I can use it anywhere. I took the renewing 1-Month Premium membership ($4.99) from Google Play for CamScanner.. The app automatically determines the edges and captures my receipt, document, product description on box, serial number on device, etc. - converts it to PDF and automatically emails it to my Evernote account. High resolution, Painless and Fast.
  14. I only use Evernote with my desktop. How do you open a note in its own window? I don't see any clues in the Evernote options.
  15. I hope someone has an easier solution for this issue. The highlight does not show up on a printed note. My clunky workaround is: Add a tag called temporary to the note that I want to work on. Then run a new search for tag:temporary to find the note. without the highlight. After working on the document, I delete the tag Temporary
