  1. This has always been a pet peeve of mine. Why wouldn't symbols be supported? I mean, if I search for 'A' for example, I will get every note that contains the letter A, which would be all of them. Why can't symbols be treated as characters. It just makes no sense. It would help so much when searching for stock symbols (preceded by $ on Twitter) for instance. If I search for SHOP I get every note that contains the word SHOP instead of notes about Shopify. So a search for $SHOP would be most useful. Again, this just makes no sense. Why would they just say, "OK, we need a fantastic search tool since we are essentially a free-form database. We're even going to search within photos. But it makes sense to only allow search for alpha and numeric characters. We'll ignore common symbols like # @ and $ because it would allow people to easily find hashtags, email addresses, and stock symbols.
  2. Yes, I absolutely agree! I ran across this post looking for a “desktop-like” iOS browser clipper. We need the same clipping efficiency on iOS that we have on the desktop. I suspect the limitation is within iOS (Apple). Evernote should write their own browser (or buy one like Dolphin and optimize it for Evernote).
  3. Thanks for the tip on old versions on FileHippo. Reinstalled 4.6 and attributes - and colors - are back!
  4. Oh, I so agree. The only thing worse than the new Windows interface is the iPad interface which is almost unuseable. Who decided that "flat" (ie, grey) was 'simple.' It's not! Simple is good contrast where all the elements stand out and you can find things quickly.
  5. Are there any plans to allow searching on special characters, specifically @, #, and $. I'd like to collect lots of notes that contain tweets and web pages with stock symbols that are usually prefaced with $, like $C (Citigroup) or $T (AT&T). And no, tags won't help. I don't want to tag every note I collect. I just want to see every note that I've clipped that contains $C, etc.
  6. Yes, I discovered this today. I was going to use EN for collecting info on stocks. Most websites (and Twitter) preface stock symbols with $, so $C (Citigroup), $T (AT&T), etc. When I search for $C I get every occurrence of 'c' ..... This is nuts! Not supporting special characters in search is a serious strategic error!
  7. I only used Skitch on my iPhone and iPad to do quick markups of screen shots and it was perfect for that. I didn't need to "integrate" Skitch into Evernote. Adding a marked-up 'photo' (all a screen shot is) to a note in EN was simple enough. Besides just gutting Skitch, it's buggy in iOS Evernote. What a waste. What were you thinking????
  8. This is an interesting thread, with a lot of great thoughts, but the one I keep having is, why put all that sensitive information on EN in the first place? Is it really necessary to have access to your old bank statements on every device you use? Really? I am just getting started with the "paperless" approach. I downloaded some Amex statements, and only 3 of the 8 pages are useful. But the pdf download files are password protected? Why? It's just a digital copy of a paper statement. They couldn't tell me. Took me all of 5 minutes to download a free utility to removed pdf passwords, so I could remove the 5 useless pages in each statement. Then I noticed, that despite only using the last 4 digits of the acct number on the pages headers, at the bottom of page 1 is the "payment slip", with the full account number fully visible. Since I own the Pro version of Adobe, I can manually redact that pretty easily, and I'm pretty comfortable with then uploading that to EN. But why do I need to? Why not just tuck that file away on encrypted hard drives, locally? No disrespect inteneded, but I think some EN users just go way to far with putting stuff on EN..... "because I can" is not reason enough to do something.
