  1. OK.. so I had templates briefly, but after updating to 7.5, it seems to have gone away. I am flagged for beta in the preferences, but can't figure out why they disappeared. ideas?
  2. Yes, it happens every time to me as well. the bummer part is, I was just about to try switching back to Penultimate for my notes and this is blocking me. I am curious on the commitment level to this app considering everything going on (or not) at Evernote. I would love to keep all of my stuff in one place.
  3. So.. Things have definitely evolved over the past couple years. I have taken on the hobby of trying to improve/tweak/waste time on my productivity systems. Quick summary is this: 1. I am sticking with Evernote for Notes, Capturing content, going paperless for MOST things, Journaling my work, etc. I just posted about it here; http://www.torgersons.com/why-i-am-sticking-with-evernote-for-now/ 2. I have moved to a real task manager like many of you suggested. I was on Omnifocus for a long time. I've tried todoist, Wunderlist, Things. I am now using 2do, primarily because the way I think works with 2do. Start dates means I should be working on something. Due dates is a deadline. Omnifocus hid too many things from my brain. 2do seems to be doing this quite nicely for me.
  4. I use standard checkboxes in my meeting notes for ToDos. I have mostly moved my ToDo list out to Wunderlist, and use Task Clone to find those checkboxes and move them to Wunderlist. But I also have 2 saved searches I keep in my sidebar. 1 - To Complete (week) 2 - To Complete (month) These searches look for notes that have "CONTAINS: Incomplete to-dos" & "Updated Since: last week" (or month) Then, I scan through these on a regular basis to see notes with items I have not completed yet. It's not one consolidated list, but it works for what I use it for.
  5. I have to jump on here.. often when I am scanning a document, it "thinks" it is a business card. Worse yet, if I didn't take the time to go make sure what was saved in Evernote, yet tossed the paper, I have lost one side of my scan (if it was two sided). This is a huge flaw.
  6. I am only ever trying to save to Evernote. I typically never scan more than 1-2 pages at a time, so these are not large.
  7. Sometimes I have a series of documents, receipts, etc that I would like to scan in and save to Evernote, but I don't want to have them in the same scanned note. They are independent and not related. It would be nice to have a feature that acts more like what the premise of Phil's demo was the first time around.. I just hold over a document, it scans.. and automatically goes to evernote. I can then move to the next paper, do the same..and just have 1 note per scan and it is saved automatically. Does this make sense?
  8. I have had the issue with a couple of times where I am in a situation with low data connectivity or no data connectivity, and when I try to scan and save my files.. Scannable just spins and hangs, and I eventually lose my scan. Sometimes it has crashed on me. It's hit and miss if the scan is still there when I go back into the app . I am finding I don't trust the app to use it now and I am falling back to 3rd party apps that are more stable... but not as nice. Anyone else seeing this issue?
  9. What do you mean with 'setup a note for presentation'? Using new layout editor inMac application? If yes, then unfortunately the editor behavior has not been implemented on iOS. But on iOS side, you can still use the horizontal rulers (which Mac version replaced with dividers in layout editor) to split your presentation content. just means I can't format it on my computer, then go to iOS to present.
  10. Do you manually link to your Evernote notes from there? or do you try to cross-link the two? Because I work so much inside of Evernote, I just felt it was a burden to do the linking. (although I was just probably being lazy)
  11. BAM! Frank. I was so thrilled with my "settled on" solution. Now I am going to spend a bunch of time refining tonight. I can't wait to see the next couple posts. By using the Reminders (even without dates) but dragging between folders, it makes it really easy to move things around and gets rid of some of the duplicity in my process. (which I agree was a bit heavy handed, but working) Thanks for sharing.
  12. I agree that subtasks are missing, also recurring, etc. Some things I do in Wunderlist for simple tracking. I just found linking Evernote notes to my task program was just the same effort as COPY NOTE LINK and putting it in Evernote. curious what you use for tasks?
  13. I have discussed this before but... For me, Evernote has become useless because of the scaling issue. I cannot use my main account on the Windows desktop nor the iOS client due to the number of notes (over 64,000) or the size of the database (over 37 gigs) or both. SO...about two years ago, I created my "duet" account & would share a few notebooks between the two accounts. However, about six months ago, the sharing got effed up...(discussed that on the board & supplied ticket numbers - "ghost notes" would remain & I'd have to do the "rebuild my local database thing." Then they fixed it...then it broke again.) The cherry on top was when I realized the web client (the only client I can use my main account on) doesn't search correctly. (Also discussed on the board & supplied the ticket number.) Sure, I can still take/create notes. But if I can't use the app to RETRIEVE them, then it's not really helpful. Oddly enough, unless EN does a major overhaul, these are issues that will persist with a focus on business. Don't take this the wrong way.. but I am curious how people use Evernote to get 65,000 notes. Rough math.. for the past 7 years, you have created 25 notes a day..every day of the week, non stop! Wow! I can't fathom what this would be for and I am really curious?!! Any insights?
  14. I have seen many others post in the forums before on how they are using tasks, or why they don't use Evernote tasks. I have gone back and forth on this for quite some time. I think I have finally settled that my process in a work in progress, but one that works for me. I thought I'd share. Rather than re-post the whole article.. check out the post. http://www.torgersons.com/detailed-routine-using-evernote-for-tasks-and-tracking/
  15. I was really excited about the presentation mode updates. I noticed however, when you have setup a note for presentation, then go to your mobile device, the settings do not carry over. If I am using my phone to Airplay the presentation, this really breaks the value of the setup. Yes, I could present from the computer, but I was just hoping this solution worked. Anyone else finding this as well? I hope it's on the roadmap to fix.
