  1. The legacy Windows client always gave me the ability to drag notes to tags. So whenever I would sit down to file the notes in my Inbox away, I could just drag them to the appropriate tag in the panel on the left-hand side. For some crazy reason, this was not the case on Mac -- you have to either magically know the tag you want and type it in each time, or go to an entire "tag organizing" screen to add new tags. In the new clients, the only remaining wrench in my workflow, is the ability to right click the side panel on the left and being able to create new tags, and then being able to DRA
  2. I suppose it does provide a hard line of separation between the "work" and "personal". Also, OneNote is meh in my opinion - I have my gripes. But for work it may be the option.
  3. I may ramble here for a second, but it's to provide context. Trust me, I'll have a point at the end of all this. I think... I've been a fan of the productivity space for years. I truly believe that many "apps" have made me more productive. Evernote for notes, Todoist for tasks, OneNote for files -- that happens to be where I'm at now, but you name it - I've used it. I also watch a lot of 'Productivity Gurus' on YouTube, always looking for new tips and ways to become efficient. But I've realized something lately. Some of these people - okay, a lot of those people - overcomplicate thi
  4. I was doing that for a while, but for just highlighting I found EN to be sufficient. Sending everything to Notability and storing on Google Drive, then back to EN....it was too tedious for me. I do like Notability though and would agree it's more robust.
  5. Old post, but I thought I'd chime in. I'm a bit older (late thirties) and I'm taking University courses online, one at a time. Given my slower pace and the fact that I'm taking History - a class with readings in PDF format - I just import everything into EN and then annotate/highlight the PDF's using EN on the iPad. It's great, I can sit wherever I want and I'm not tied to a computer. Wherever my iPad will go I can read my school articles. The only part that's tricky is if I want to take notes while reading something. That's where two screens really come in handy; one for reading and one
  6. I'm at work right now and we have painfully slow Wi-Fi here. I'll give this a shot when I get home tonight, thanks. @gazumped - that's an idea too, just move everything into a single, offline notebook. My fear in doing that is that my memory....well, it's no elephant.
  7. My reasoning for trying other services or for wanting offline notebooks? I think you're referring to offline notebooks.... I tend to overdo things in the tech world. My desktop is backed up to an external drive and to Crashplan, with important files duplicated yet again on services like Flickr and GoogleDrive. I'm thinking that for a relatively small amount of storage space on my phone that these notes will take, it's worth it in the event I'm ever lost without a data connection. I use EN a lot to store event tickets and other such documents so I'm terrified of that moment where I ne
  8. I left Evernote for about 4 days to explore other possibilities after the price hike (I'm a premium subscriber), but for various reasons I've decided I just love this app too much, and I've come back. One of the things that I've decided to implement upon my return - and now that I have a 64GB phone - is offline notes. I have about 1500 notes consisting of about, oh, 3GB maybe. Last night when I got home from work I went into the EN settings and selected "Offline Notebooks" and "Download all notes". I checked on the progress throughout the evening by viewing my notebooks - it shows a
  9. I've been an EN member since 2010, and a premium subscriber for at least 90% of that time. I recently imported everything into OneNote as I've used both OneNote and EN for quite some time, and I can't justify the $89 CAD for the premium subscription. Sorry, but PDF annotation isn't worth quite that much to me. Anyway... One thing I find funny - and I'm guilty of it too at times - is how we let our biases play into things. For example, the stories above about how EN is worth it because it held receipts and let you look up old purchases. You can do that in OneNote just as easily, and O
  10. I don't often clip multiple emails, but today I had cause to do so and ended up on this thread. +1 for adding the multiple clip thing back but also...kudos on a very nice redesign. I really like the new interface and in that respect I prefer it over the previous version. Just yah, bring back the ability to clip more than one email at a time!
  11. For the most part, the way a scan is "enhanced" after a photo is taken is quite helpful. There have been occasions though where I'll scan a piece of my kid's artwork and when the enhancement kicks in it totally ruins the scan. Is there a way to toggle the enhancement on/off?
