  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 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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?
  8. 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)
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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/
  12. I am sooooooo glad to see you are putting this back in. The idea of creating a public notebook was by virtue of that choice, NOT intended to be secure. warn me again before I agree.. but please let's hope this stays as a feature in future releases. I didn't use it often, but a public notebook URL is NOT the same as adding more email addresses. (in most cases, I won't know who is linking to my public notebook that I want open).
  13. Good question.. I think having a folder of a "journal" entry allows me to easily go through on Friday, look across my week and see the items i've touched. This helps me spark a memory of a possible task I forgot, plan for next week, etc. I guess I could do the search for each day and just look at this list but the TOC view just seemed to make it a bit easier for my weekly review.
  14. OK, I am sure many of you already know or do this, but I had a bit of an ah-ha moment this week. When I am working on my stuff for the week, much of it is already in Evernote. I was trying to track a separate journal for what I did each day. I finally stumbled upon this idea when working on a presentation post about Evernote.. Problem: Sometimes I have a hard time remembering everything I accomplished in a day or week, big or small items alike. I may need to reference something but I don't want a lot of overhead for tracking the work I am doing. I wanted some easy way to track things I touched each day. Solution: Go to your NOTES section in the sidebar so all of your notes are showing. If you don't already have the UPDATED field showing, right click and check the UPDATED field so it shows. Now, when you sort by updated, you will see all of your notes that were updated today. At the end of the day, select all of those notes and choose to create a TABLE OF CONTENTS note. Now you will have a note that auto-links to each item you edited that day. It makes it easy to not only track, but to get back to each item. I then label my note with a journal entry and CMD-SHIFT-D for inserting the date automatically. Then I file this under a Journal notebook to make it easy to track down. I can even add other notes to the bottom of the days entry. The cool thing is, this only takes a couple minutes to complete. It makes life easier days from now when you are trying to remember something you did Tuesday. My Duh-Tip. I would love to hear if others have done some cool things. If only there was an IFTTT recipe to automate this.
  15. I was able to return my Script to Adonit for a full refund. How were you able to do that? I read no refunds.. but I have my box,etc and would love to send it back.
