  1. I have to add my name to this list. The new snippet view is far too busy - just too much info for one to be able to scan quickly. You can't even change the font size of the title. What the point of showing most of whats on the right also on the left in snippet view! List view would be fine - only if it showed the full note on the right instead of underneath. There should be an option to have it on the right. I want to quickly scan a list and then click on one to see the full note. This is all as step backwards for sure
  2. After upgrading try: Look at your Activity Monitor in Utilities and sort by %CPU to see if something is hogging your Mac. It could be EN! In EN go to Help > Activity log and see what happening Then use this fab program: fseventer for Mac. It will show you all the disk/file activity on your Mac. I have had this issue mainly caused by EN repeatedly attempting to create a thumbnail image for a corrupt note. Help > Activity Log will show you what EN is doing. You should be able to see the name of the note that is causing the issue. Open the note in Preview and save it to the desktop. Delete the note in EN fully. Add the note back in from the desktop. That should solve that issue.
  3. Also try: "WordService". It's Freeware. http://www.devon-technologies.com/download/index.html Adds and option to your Apple Services menu to insert the date at time. You can then add a short cut in Apple Prefs > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts You also get a host of other goodies with it.
  4. I've been using "Evernote Account Switcher" for a good few months now, and have had zero issues with it. I would say it works flawlessly. It also switches very quickly between accounts. http://www.jazzaround.net/eas/ The other alternative mentioned here, also works very well - having more than one account on your Mac. If neither of the accounts have a logon password, then the switch is very quick indeed. You can always add a password at the end of the day. Or just give the screen-saver a password. But I too am amazed that Evernote does not have the ability to allow multiple accounts open at the same time. I have 3 premium accounts at the moment. It's a no-brainer really, and would be an instant revenue stream.
  5. Try WordService - it's FoC http://www.devon-technologies.com/products/freeware/services.html
  6. Dr Skippy - this sounds like a great app. Sign me up for sure. Searching for a tag name is the big one for me - I create them, then can't find them!
  7. You can also right-click and "View as attachment" and then drag that icon out; or, a little know trick - right click and open in "Preview" and then drag the icon a the top of the document window title, yes, it draggable!
  8. Thanks folks. Saving searches as per "jbenson" is a good workaround
  9. Thank you all - but the question still remains: Can you confirm that it's not possible to save a search for shared notebooks? Will this be available at some point?
  10. Yes you can search shared notebooks, but no, you can't seem to SAVE that search. And you can't search shared notebooks from the "Account" tab; you have to be under the "Shared" tab.
  11. Cool. I guess that Julian Assange would be happy with that - so if it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me But can you confirm that it's not possible to save a search for shared notebooks? Will this be available at some point? Thanks.
  12. When I link to a shared notebook (with full editing access), I see that if any given tag appears in one of the shared notes, then it will appear in the TAGS section under the SHARED TAB. This makes sense. But I see that no saved searches appear. Would it not be logical (and helpful) to have the SAVED SEARCHES appear under the SHARED TAB as well? ie: All those saved searches that reference any related shared notebook? Indeed, it seems that one can not even create your own saved searches under the SHARED TAB? Many thanks. EN 2.0 is looking good!
  13. Actually, I've just seen that next to the file in the note is a "Quick Look" button, but still nice to have it in the tool bar as well.
  14. It's OK - you just "mis-spoke" as Bill Clinton would say :-) Do please be so kind as to add it to the "little things to do that make a big difference" list :-) P
  15. I've just realized that the easiest way to add an email to EN is just to print it - and select "Save PDF to Evernote". You then don't even need to hit the Print button. The Subject of the email then becomes the Note Title. And it's cleaner to save emails as PDFs.
  16. Nope. I took a look with PlistEdit Pro, and there is no pref in there for this. There are these prefs in EN itself: "Confirm on Tag Deletion" "Confirm on Saved Search Deletion" But these do not appear in the plist either! You would think that they would. Would be nice to get to the bottom of this, as I use EN to store invoices and important documents etc. Are you sure that there is such a warning for deleting notes? If there was, you would think a reset would be in the prefs like for Tags and Saved Searches. Thanks again.
  17. Yes, I put that in just to test how smart you are :-) Learning new words is smart! I appreciate your advice, but the issue is that I don't realize I've deleted the note in the first place. I can scan my Trash, but it's full of "detritus" from numerous merges.
  18. Thanks. Is there an option to "reset all warnings" like in some programs? I can't see it. If not, can I delete some pref/plist file? Or even edit it?
  19. It's all too easy to hit delete and delete a note by mistake - and there is no pref for a warning like on deleting tags, notebooks or saved searches. I know that deleted notes end up in the trash - but often you don't realize you've deleted a note in the first place, and in any case, my trash is filled with notes that are the detritus from merges, and an accidentally deleted note would just get lost. So please can we have a warning! Many thanks, and keep up the good work.
  20. Just want to say this is a fantastic little app. It lets you have multiple Evernote accounts on a Mac, and it seamlessly switches between them. I've tested version 2.0, and it stable and does the job - you don't even have to enter your passwords. Why on earth Evernote don't include this function I don't know - because now I'm going to be buying a second premium account, and maybe more. At least it should be available via The Trunk?
  21. I LOVE tags. Notebooks are really just base-level tags in disguise. eg: every note must have just one of these tags to mark it's base-level grouping. IMHO folks who want sub-folders etc., just aren't prepared to make the leap into "tag world". They need to relax and let the "tag force" be with them. Tags effectively enable notes to be in multiple folders/sub folders at the same time. But it's counter-intuitive, as it's about LESS "organization" of notes not more! But organization is not really what it's about. It's about FINDING the notes you need and grouping them to read/scan. But as humans we're used to feeling that in order to find something we need to know "where" it is - ie: in a folder somewhere. But this is just imprisoning them. Tag's liberate them - and you!
  22. When any given Note window is not wide enough to display all it's tags in a row, it wraps them around and hides them under the tags that are showing, starting at the first tag. You can just see their lower edges. At first I thought this was a bug and the tags were missing; and then I thought it was a bug with them not displaying correctly. Then I pulled the divider to make the note window wider - and they were all visible. I think that in such instances it would be better to have the tag section automatically get higher to accommodate all the tags in full wrap-around mode; although this does eat into the space to display the note itself. If you have many, many tags, then there could be a menu option to keep just one line of tags. Or, you could have a symbol that appears at the end of the line of tags that becomes active when there are too many tags to display. Clicking on this will heighten the tag section. Keep up the good work!
  23. If you do a lot of emailing to Evernote, you could use a program called iKey. This allows you (amongst other things) to assign a series of key strokes to a function key. So if you assigned: Select All>Copy>Evernote paste key combination to a function key; then when you click anywhere in an email and hit the function key, your email will go to Evernote. Even the subject line will become the note title - see my post above. You can also assign it to a menu key; or even a floating menu button.
  24. Interestingly, if you copy the body of an email (in Mail), and then "Paste to Evernote" in the menu bar, the note that is created has as it's title the subject line of the email. Even though one has not copied the subject line itself. You can test this by just clicking in any email and selecting "Paster to Evernote". So there must be some linkage between Mail and the Evernote clipper. It just needs to be expanded a bit...
