  1. yes reinstall did not change, using Android 6 with Xiaomi Mi Mix phone running MIUI launcher.
  2. hi. when i add a widget - i hold on the desktop - then the menu comes up - i choose widgets - evernote - two icons are displayed. once places the note list, the other places a 5 item toolbar. i want the 1x1 audio note but it is not available as a choice.
  3. hello - 1x1 icons missing in my version of evernote widgets - using a new phone Xiaomi Mi Mix using Mi launcher - please advise hot to get the 1x1 audio recorder icon displayed. No SD card involved.
  4. can't we just say we would REALLY like to have this feature and leave it at that? they don't seem willing to say if it is a technical or a management decision, until we do we cannot know. I would really like to be able to group my searchable notes in bundles together so i can find them in groups by browsing in addition to the searching method, i hope others would as well. brad
  5. i would also like to know how to copy 5 complete notes from one notebook to another. evernote support uses this information to check on bug reports so they are not duplicates, they are examples of the issue i am experiencing. cutting and pasting the contents would destroy the history of the note and not show the issue, and i can't move them because they are needed. I am using Windows Evernote.
  6. adding a vote for improved sound quality from iphone voice notes - difficult to understand them, using speechpad now until this is improved - thanks! brad
  7. is that quote from the doc also another outdated feature that has been removed? i can't say i see the point of a saved search if it does not allow you to determine the scope of the search, but can only take a random scope based on wherever you happen to be when you click the button. sounds like another keyboard macro i have to write... brad
  8. what is the search grammar for searching across all notebooks please? i have read the documentation and it simply says: "If no notebook is given, the search will go over all of the user's active notes." however this does not work: notebook: "all about me" nor does this: notebook:"" "all about me" please advise how to force a saved search (or any search) to all folders/all notes, thanks brad
  9. in my opinion, tab should work in evernote like most plain text editors (assuming fixed font) - you should tab to the character underneath the position where there is a character on the previous line, that way you can line up any columns you want..
  10. dave, when i search for _sb on iphone per your instructions, search returns 56 items when there is only 1 match in the windows application - and the underscore is stripped form the search term. is this proper behavior or not?
  11. dave - thanks for the details and i agree you need an effective indexing system but you also need a backup system when your indexing system fails, which is the case here. if i put something in quotes like "30%" you should do a full on search of everything in the database, the choice to go slow was one that i made based on the specific requirement of the quotes. i agree you need a method to make things fast but i suggest you add an alternate method to make things "accurate". if you don't, we can't "remember everything"... brad
  12. i searched for at&t in google now and it worked just fine, it does not work in EN.
  13. just curious why such a limitation was put in place? there are a lot of other characters besides letters and numbers that makeup a database, anyone know the reason they chose to make it impossible to search for such a large percentage of them? so i can't search for 30% or AT&T or brad@me.com or A++ those all will fail because they involve punctuation?
  14. hmm, so how is a search for punctuation characters achieved? like looking for markers such as "$$$"?
  15. when i search for the phrase "sb$" in iphone it changes it to "sb" - this might be a bug? how can i search for the phrase sb$ ? thanks
  16. i upgraded to premium version specifically to use shared folders in the desktop windows product - please tell me how to make them work in version 3.5.1. brad
  17. thanks for the helpful reply- sparked a new idea - document types supported by evernote could be edited and updated by another application to create folders inside a document where evernote handles the heavy lifting of moving the information around to the other devices as long as you don't mess up the markers that reformat the data - good idea! Can a document in evernote - such as word - be changed by another app and update in place without creating duplicates?
  18. thanks for the tips but todo lists are lists of documents typically with a history and a bunch of details until they are completed - i need to move them up and down in the priority queue as they get hotter, a single note would not work, thanks. brad
  19. have you ever used the auto-sort option in windows desktop? some people like to rigidly stick to the grid, others like to place icons wherever they will feel comfortable. i suppose everyones desk is laid out differently - you have pencils there i have a post-it pad there, it's they way we work. Info Select allows me to place my list of items in the order i choose without having to change the items header in order to get it in a certain order, it only sorts when I request it to do so. Typically i like the most important things at the top of a list of todos, quick dial numbers, hot projects and such. your system appears to force me into using a forced sort order like a database as opposed to say a project management system or a slideshow manager or a video editor - where you put things where YOU want to see them. in your system i must modify the records constantly so that the forced sort order does not re-arrange them without my wanting it to change. anyway, the order of things is critical - and if Info Select were not so far in the past with features i would still be with them using the only feature that matters - sync to web and iphone. I hope i can wrangle your system to meet my need but at this point i'm hitting a lot of roadblocks. brad
  20. odd - never occurred to me the repository where you keep all of your information would not work as your todo list manager - you keep everything else there, why not this? thought that was the main reason for all this sync activity between machines. brad
  21. well how can you have a todo list without high priority items that are at the top of the list? hence the numbering system. so i need a number for each of the high priority todo items and lower numbers for the other items in descending order since i have no folder to put these items in based on how important they are. brad
  22. that helps - so note titles, tags and making multiple notes into a single note are the keys to your organization. i archive my emails as well - is there a tag for incoming email so it goes in it's own notebook? i'm stating to see how business and personal and email could each be different notebooks and it seems long note names are the key to finding those entries. still wish it were easier to prioritize items though rather than having to rename them "001 " and such. thanks brad
  23. engberg, yes it does not pay to organize too much - unless you need the information to make sense while browsing. it sounds like you are saying that every sentence in a word processing document can be in a random order as long as you have a search engine to help you find the sentence you want. thats great if you want a sentence, but what if you want to read the entire document start to finish by browsing the heirarchy (table of contents)? what if you don't know exactly what you are looking for? what if you know the general area but not the specific search terms? what if a search comes up with too many matches? subfolders solve all of these issues. i don't agree on the google/web analogy because the next time you search the information may change - the web is dynamic, my information is personal and only i change it, so i like to know where it is exactly so i can jump right to the proper spot when the time comes. This is why i'm having trouble understanding the rigidness of evernote, and why a simple concept like subfolders to tuck items away in their proper place is so unknown. seems to me you have not decided if you are random or organized information manager. if you are organized - you need folders so we can organize these notes into places where like things stay together, and then use the powerful search when we are looking across all items. if you are random, let us move items anywhere we want to and don't sort them automatically - and again we can use the search or browse as we choose. burgers, so your Miscellaneous notebook contains 100 entries for coffeemaker that you need to scroll thru to look at any one topic. you must also bypass 100 coffeemaker notes to get to the next section under Miscellaneous, correct? so the more items you create, the more unweildy your Miscellaneous folder becomes? see, i have 7821 notes in probably 300 nested folders currently i am attempting to port to evernote, and i just can't see how randomly throwing them into the pile makes sense when they go together like children. yes all of my orders each month are in a single CSV file download. items and all that does not matter, as this data is used for searching customer names and order ID's only. however i browse it each month to make sure i have not missed a month. if you create huge long note titles as you suggest your data gets harder to manage as words fall off the right of the screen and more data equals more matches which compounds the problem. but i do see how you are trying to make a virtual folder from a tag, i still need to find out more about nested tags however, but thats a seperate post, thanks brad
  24. ok thats good to know - i found it hidden under an ad. please make the undo function work then - thanks. brad
  25. ok - so you are saying i should create hundreds of notebooks for each need, i'm assuming that will perform ok. is it possible to nest them inside each other - like business > product > sales records > 2009 >march i have been searching the forums as i start but cannot find a tutorial on nested tags for folder junkies - you seem to have mastered it - any advice is appreciated, thanks. brad
