  1. +1! It is a difficult process to add/change/clear reminders on both the Mac and iOS apps... but particularly odd for the mac app, since everything else has such great keyboard shortcuts
  2. Yeah, I was hoping for an actual copy of the note as well.
  3. I have done some searching and can’t seem to find a way to do this... Is there an integration that can email the body of a note when the reminder is coming due? Ideally it would also be nice to include a link back to the note?
  4. Thanks for the feedback. I need to look into the way you attach the actual email, as I am not familiar with that. Also, usually I am processing my email from my iOS device (which is how this started with question about setting reminder from the share menu). Ultimately, the need to go back to the email is to send a response or follow up inside the chain after the follow up period I am hoping to monitor in Evernote. I appreciate the help...
  5. I have been using Evernote for nearly 10 years, but am very new to using the reminders feature. However, I have been trying to use it for emails to help reduce the number of emails hanging out in my inbox to follow up on something. Unfrotunately, my email app of choice (AirMail) does not give ANY options on the send to Evernote feature (no notebooks, tags or reminders), which means I have to process the same email twice (once in AirMail and again in Evernote). Therefore, I have been using the Share function, which at least let’s me set notebook and tags, but it is a lengthy process to switch over to Evernote to set the reminder. I may start using the “forwarding” option for setting reminders, but then I lose the link back to the specific email I get when using the “Share” option. It seems odd that the reminders feature is missing from the Evernote “share” widget, since they have had the reminders feature so long.
  6. Thanks... that is what I suspected. Certainly not a huge issue, but would be a nice improvement if you could set reminders while sharing. I was hoping there may be a third party solution, but I haven't found one. FastEver has the ability to set reminders when entering notes, but you can't seem to send stuff to FastEver through the iOS "Share" menu (from what I have seen). I guess for now it requires sending to Evernote, then going to the "All Notes" in Evernote iOS app to set the reminder date.
  7. Maybe I am missing it, but is there a way to set a reminder from the “share” to Evernote from iOS? (ie the box with upward arrow) It appears there is only an option to set the notebook and tags... which is unfortunate since it requires going into the Evernote App to find the new note and set a reminder. Any suggested workarounds?
  8. +1 agree completely... it appears that the "Save to Evernote" add in puts a link to outlook webmail, but it doesn't work for me. Ideally it should link to the email inside the local app.
  9. I haven't looked at Penultimate in a long time, but am a heavy user of GoodNotes 5. However, there are definitely use cases where I want to jot down some handwritten notes in an existing EverNote Note... but the "sketch" feature makes the text barely legible (with my handwriting). Is it just a feature of iOS that makes the strokes look like a fountain pen? Screenshots of the sketch feature seem to use normal pen thickness https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/213493077-How-to-add-hand-drawn-sketches-to-Evernote-on-iOS-devices
  10. Is there any way to select the type of ink when you add a handwritten sketch to EverNote for iPad? I know you can change color and thickness, but the style of the ink is like a fountain pen, with drastic changes in thickness. I an not sure if it is my handwriting style, but it makes my notes pretty illegible. Can you choose to have a ballpoint per, or consistent thickness to your stroke? Also, it would be nice if you could change the settings for the background dots... the' are puts narrow ruled for guiding handwritten notes or jotting down text.
  11. I have the same problem, and it really is not clear what info they want us to share or where to submit a bug report. The problem for Evernote is that the vast majority of users will never complain, they will just stop using the software. I can tell you that over the past year, I have definitely used evernote much less because of the annoying delay in typing. I don't really want to be a beta tester or submit problem reports. I just want software that works. Apparently a year+ after this thread started, maybe it is not something that will be fixed so myself and others need to find other solutions for taking notes on Mac.
  12. +1 for a feature that would allow you to send an email to Evernote (not forwarding to an email address), and include a link back to the original email in Mail App. This feature would make it so much easier to follow up on emails and keep track of various emails that are parts of projects. Right now, if I want to follow up on emails in Evernote by forwarding them, I then need to go back to Mail to search for those emails when I want to send a follow up email or reply to the prior message. I have considered getting Mail Tags or some other app that will allow me to tag and organize the emails better without sending them to Evernote, but I prefer to have the emails and all of my notes, etc. in one central location (which is what Evernote is supposed to be). Seems like this should be a feature that can be done... OmniFocus has a similar functionality where you can have links to emails within TODO items, where clicking the link opens the mail item.
  13. I agree completely with the security concerns, and it is really ashame, because without a service like this I just don't think that "paperless" statements works for me... recently I have experimented with converting to paperless statements, but having to go into each site and pull the statements down is less efficient than getting the paper statement in the mail and running it through my ScanSnap. Even with bookmarks set up and a password manager (I use 1Password on Mac), it takes way too long to find the statements (since each provider has it hidden in a slightly different spot) and saving the document to evernote is not that much quicker than running it through the scanner.
  14. Anyone have any new thoughts on FileThis over the past year? I keep going back and forth... the few accounts I have set up through the service work flawlessly. However, I still go back and forth about the security of (a) giving my bank, etc. passwords to a company so small and ( the risks of storing my statements in the Evernote cloud. I first started looking into this last year when this discussion first started... one concern is that this company doesn't seem to have gotten any traction over the past year. Is anyone actually using it? If it is not catching on, that seems to suggest that it may not be around for very long, so I might as well not develop a system that relies on it.
  15. It's been over a year since I first posted this question... I was actually doing a search again to try to figure out the answer and this thread is the only one I could find. I have to imaging this is a pretty common issue, so figured I would re-post to see if anyone else has any suggestions/tips for attaching a document that you have stored in Evernote to an email? I am working on going paperless and scanning documents from ScanSnap straight to Evernote. Sometimes I need to email copies of those documents (either immediately or weeks/months later) and it seems kind of silly to save a copy out of Evernote to a folder so that I can attach it to an email. Any work arounds to help with this? I am using Mac's Mail App.... would be great to have some sort of reverse clipper for Mail app, which would allow you to search for a note and attach documents linked to that note, but that is probably asking a bit much.
  16. I feel like there has to be an easy way to do this, but I can't figure it out. If you have a document stored in Evernote, is there a way to find that email and attach it to an outgoing email or an email you are responding to in Gmail or another mail app? I know that I could email the entire Evernote note, but what if I just want to attach one file that is inside of an Evernote note and attach it to an existing email conversation? I am running the mac version of the software.
