    Warning when Moving Notes to Shared Notebook

    This disaster occurred with 7.0 and i complained about it then. Now, almost a year later, it still has not been fixed. I have a regular/personal premium account, not a business account. I have a notebook i share with some friends. I don't need to be notified 10 times a day that i am moving a note to a shared notebook. There obviously should be a check box so that when the warning pops up, you can uncheck the box to tell evernote not to notify you again. Standard programming on Mac apps, except for Evernote. And yes, i voted on this.

    Evernote for Mac 7.2 GA

    Not Fixed: There is still a pop up notification which must be approved EVERY SINGLE TIME i move a note from my inbox to a notebook which is shared telling me that other people can see this note. Seriously, there is NO NEED for this ridiculous notification which must be approved EVERY SINGLE TIME. This needs to pop up once and give me a check box to never have it pop up again. I move notes 5 to 10 times a day. This never existed before 7.0 and it isn't needed. Is Evernote deliberately trying to slow my work process? I've never seen a request for this. Why are you nagging me 10 times a day for the EXACT SAME THING OVER and OVER?

    Evernote for Mac 7.1 GA (UPDATE: 7.1.1 hot fix)

    This release STILL continues to pop up a notification asking for approval when moving a note from my inbox to a shared notebook. I do this more than 5 times a day and i've been doing it for 9 years, now Evernote insists that i approve every single note i move to a shared notebook. This "feature" is intrusive, counterproductive, and absolutely should have a checkbox (as is normal in MacOS apps) that gives me an option to no longer see this notification requesting my approval. This was added in 7.0 and is the single worst and most intrusive thing to affect my daily work that Evernote has ever done.

    Thank you. I completely missed this checkbox.

    Bulletting Bug The penchnt for Evernote to insert itself into my work process has become annoying and irritating. I've been using Evernote for among many other things, a collection of quotations. I have more than 3,000 quotation and they have been in Evernote for many years now. I long ago settled on a standard format which i use for searching, Following eachquotation, on a new line i enter the name of the author of the quotation preceeded by 2 hyphens and a space. It looks like this: -- Herni Nouwen Under 7.0X this is now impossible. If you make a hyphen then a space at the beginning of a line, Evernote turns it into a Bulleted line. If you manually unclick the biullet button, it reverts to the name, but WITHOUT the hyphen. In other words, you can not start a line with a hyphen and a space. I use 2 hyphens and a space, but MacOS turns 2 hyphens into a long dash. I figured a way around this years ago, by typing one hyphen and a space and the name, and then going back and adding the second hyphen at the beginning. This is no longer possible. When i want bullet points, i can click the button and turn on bullets, but Evernote no longer allows me to use a dash without turning it into a bullet.

    The notification when moving a note into a shared folder is even more obnoxious than the basic notification of just moving a note. I do this several times a day, and i've been doing it for many years. I think i know what i'm doing and i do not need to be told over and over and over again. On the first notification there should be a check box which says "do not notify me again". That's what a well done program would do. I'm a premium user since 2009.
  7. I also find the notifications annoying and intrusive. I can't believe that anyone actually ASKED for this "feature". It has all the earmarks of something some programmer thought was spiffy, which instead slows down and interferes with my workflow multiple times per day. The notification when moving something into a shared folder is even more obnoxious. I do this several times a day, and i've been doing it for many years. I think i know what i'm doing and i do not need to be told over and over and over again. On the first notification there should be a check box which says "do not notify me again".

    Add Sort by Tag option

    While it is true that there is a way to see untagged items, my suggestion does much more than this. It accomplishes seeing untagged notes while also seeing mistagged notes or notes with misspelled tags. I'm using the Mac version, and there is not an option to see the notes in a folder sorted by tag. For my use, it not only accomplishes the above, but it also enables me to create a Table of Contents sorted by Tag.

    Add Sort by Tag option

    In the top right of the sidebar is the button which allows selecting the view (card, snippet, etc) and further down the list are options for sorting which currently includes Title, Date Updated, Date Created and others. I would like to request that one of the options when viewing notes be to sort by Tag. I have two uses for this: It would enable finding untagged items or items tagged with misspelled tags, and when creating a Table of Contents based on selected notes, it would often be helpful for those notes to be sorted in order by Tag.

  10. I just got a new 9.7" iPad Pro and i am a long time Evernote Premium user. I'm thinking about getting an Apple Pencil for note taking. Since Penultimate directly integrates with Evernote along with making handwritten notes searchable, i'm wondering if anyone here has any concerns. I've heard that Penultimate with the Apple Pencil has had some issues since IOS 10 was released and i notice it has not been updated since IOS 10 came out. I'd appreciate any feedback before shelling out for an Apple Pencil. Is there going to be an update to Penultimate which supports IOS 10? Is Penultimate still a viable app?

    Feature Request - Searching

    DTLow, Are those beta features? If so, then at least there is hope that Evernote is moving in a good direction for searching.
  12. I think that Evernote's reliance on syntax and search terms is antiquated and absurd. We should be able to click on a search button and then select terms with buttons and then also adjust the parameters for those terms, all with buttons or drop downs. Having to memorize syntax and search terms is the way we did searches 20 years ago and certainly is a poor way to make use of Evernote's most powerful feature. Yeah, I know the 'company line' is that we should design and then save searches for future use, but i never know ahead of time what I will want to search for. The parameters can change dramatically, and every time I need to search I have to dig through the syntax and terms and then play with it to make it do what should be an easy and intuitive thing.
  13. S2sailor, that's a fault in the Windows operating ststem and not Evernote's problem. PDF File viewing is built into OS X so that on a Mac, the words are highlighted when searched for directly inside Evernote without the need of an external pdf file viewer.. Microsoft has made a deliberate decision to not natively supoort pdf viewing in the operating system which is why you have to install adobe acrobat reader or another pdf reader in order to access the search feature within a pdf file. On a Mac, it just works.
  14. And ^^this^^ is exactly the problem. And it is not a new problem. It has always, since the beginning, and continues to now be, the problem. And apparently Evernote is good with it just the way it is. I like Evernote. I'm a fan. I have well over 12,000 notes in Evernote and have been premium for more than 6 years. This is something which Evernote needs to address (along with the horrendous issues with what is supposedly the editor and is so far behind state of the art that Evernote should be publicly ashamed).
