  1. I use Day One also and love Markdown. Just started using Ulysses also. Great markdown support in both. Huge gap for Evernote.
  2. I feel on the biggest missing features is native support for Markdown. Please add native Markdown to Evernote.
  3. Really need to have Markdown support native. I love using evernote but the formatting of notes needs improvement. Markdown would solve this.
  4. I have changed the default action on my Surface Book pen. I am now able to pen Evernote instead of OneNote. I would like to also change the double click of the eraser to start a clipper action using Evernote. I see the EvernoteCipper.exe but not sure if I have to supply any args to make it work. Any ideas?
  5. Sorry for the delay in replying. Open the Surface app on your SurfaceBook and select the edit button on the left menu bar. From there you can scroll down and customize the pen. You will have to navigate to the Evernote.exe. See the screen shot below. I wanted to also change the double clip to use skitch but haven't got it to work.
  6. I totally agree with you. I use Evernote for journalling also and want to encrypt the whole notebook. There are many other cases where I would like to have an entire notebook encrypted.
  7. Sorry for the delay, great posts!!
  8. Hello everyone! I maintain a few sites that use Wordpress. I would like to add a "Clip to Evernote" sharing service to my sharing options. I found one but it hasn't been updated in two years. Does anyone use one that they like or recommend how I can build one? Thanks
  9. I would love to see the Windows Client have functionality to work with the Surface Book/ Surface and the Pen. The "Windows App" is really not that great but I use the full Windows client all the time and would love to be able to use the pen like you can with OneNote. I have changed my Surface Book to open Evernote instead of One Note with the click of the eraser already.
  10. I love this idea but would want it on all platforms. I use Windows, iPhone and Web. I do a lot of my work on the Web version.
  11. I have been using Evernote since 2011. Evernote lets you search in pictures for text. I have tried to switch to OneNote because the company I work for uses Office 365, but I find Evernote much more usable. The design of Evernote allows you to concentrate on the information you are taking. You can search across notebooks very easily. I have not tried to extra text from a pic (OCR-Extracting) because I can search within each of the pics that I add as well as PDF, Word, etc (with Premium). I also find that sharing notes and notebooks is much more convenient, the security setup on note / notebook level is clear and easy to manage. Having used both Evernote and OneNote I find Evernote much more valuable and functional. Tagging is another part of Evernote that I think is setup very good. Tags are metadata in Evernote where in OneNote they are just text added to the note. With the use of Reminders, Checkboxes and Shortcuts you can create many different workflows to help through normal day. An example of my workflow is that I have one notebook called "Inbox", this is my default notebook that everything goes to unless I specify a different notebook. I clear this notebook up on a daily basis. I also have shortcuts based on searches that will find notes filtered for work and personal that have unchecked checkboxes and shortcuts that show me notes with specific tags in them. I am working on a blog series of the values and how I use Evernote at rainaldi.org. I hope this is helpful, let me know if you have any questions, I would be more than happy to offer my thoughts.
  12. I agree. I had Sunrise and really liked how it integrated with my calendar. I used reminders on my calendar and it is so helpful. I use a mix between Apple calendar for home (family) and Outlook 365 for business. With Sunrise I had both of those calendars integrated and also all notes with reminders on the calendar view. I found it very useful.
  13. I use the Outlook Plugin for Evernote daily. I use it to start a meeting agenda and meeting notes by sending a calendar event to Evernote and start my agenda or notes. I would like to know if there is a way that I can customize the default template that is used? I would like to have a section for Meeting notes that is formatted the way I want. I usually send to Evernote and then end some returns to create space at the top of the note and then change the format so it is not bold like the title of the event, then add bullets and a heading that simply says meeting notes and add an attendees to actually record who is in the meeting. Sometimes I just cross people on the invite in the note that are not present and type in the additional people that may have come without a formal invite. Also add some tags to the note - "Agenda", "Meeting Notes", etc. Any ideas? Is there a template on the system that I can customize?
  14. I would really love to see the ability to encrypt or protect a full notebook. I have been moving from DayOne for my journalling and would really like to protect that so I don't leave it available when taking notes for work or other areas.
  15. I had it open all day yesterday. Have you see the Enter and Backspace keys not working only in Evernote?
  16. I have been having a lot of issues on both my work and home computers since this update (EN (301769) Public. Home computer: Surface Book (Windows 10, i7, 8G, 256G Solid State) Work computer: Dell Latitude E6530 (Windows 7 Ent SP1 64bit, i7, 16GB) I am experience some strange issues: Very slow response time Enter and Backkeys are not always work in Evernote Not responding is showing up a lot now I have run some cleanups on my machine but only experiencing this in Evernote. I also ran the optimize data and repairs available with CTRL-Help.
  17. I have also noticed that my return key is not working all the time or the backspace key. Very strange. I have rebooted my computer and try the various options on the menu you told me about. Also have uninstalled/installed again. Noticing this at work and home (Windows 10 and Windows 7). Anyone else finding this?
  18. This sounds very interesting! How is it coming along? I looked at the site and this app looks nice. Also followed you on twitter and instagram. When are you expecting to launch? @LJRAIN
  19. I have finding that when I move around Evernote on Windows 7 (my work computer) I am getting a busy window for Evernote often. Is there a way to clean up / re-index the Windows version? I am not seeing this on Web, iPhone, or on my Windows 10 machine. It is contained only to my work computer which is a 16g, i7 2.6g 64bit. Any ideas? I was going to uninstall and reinstall...
  20. Is there a way to "pin" a note to the top of a notebook. My notes sort by most recent edit which I love. But I would like to have one note stay at the top, like TOC or summary. Any ideas?
  21. Great information, I was asked if I would talk about a few technology topics to the school district I live in and my children attend. I am a principal engineer and use Evernote for EVERYTHING! I am working on a proposal now and found your information extremely useful. Thanks! Lou
  22. I just got a Surface 2, not the Pro, this week. I didn't want the pro version. Evernote Touch seems to be very early and need a lot of work to me. I don't see much use for it on my Surface (which makes me sad). I use it all the time everywhere else (iPad, iPhone, Windows 7, Mac ,etc). I am looking forward to EN Touch to get stable and be a reliable options for as a Windows 8 app. Just my 2 cents .... Still LOVE EVERNOTE on everything else!
  23. I have been a EN premium user for several years now, I am trying to get more of my team on it. Right now I am having my boss and another member of the team (who is working on the same project as me) work on a shared note. Currently, they are using free accounts and I am using my personally premium account. The business edition sounds very good, would it just show up in my EN as an additional account that I have? I use EN for everything, work, home, church, personal project, kids, etc. I am trying to use it this way first and then build a better business case for my team to use it the business edition, first have some more learning about business edition to do. My biggest roadblock is going to be that we have SharePoint implemented enterprise wide and every user gets OneNote as part of the base install of all workstations. First I would work gaining approval for my team (7 people), then see if the department would buy in (80 people) and then see where it goes. I am going to watch some of the videos later today, but have to work on Sharepoint this afternoon ......
  24. Very good idea, but sadly I think Evernote fall short for this type of work. As a premium member I have a lot of work and family stuff on it. But I have to use something else to record a journal so I can write my thoughts without thinking of someone reading them. Same for work since I can't put personnel matters on, unless you encrypt the text. A huge improvement is the ability to encrypt or even lock a note or notebook with a pass code. I know it has been mentioned, I guess I have to look for a different product for that. That is very very sad in my opinion, as a programmer this would not be hard to implement.
