  1. Hey gazumped, Thanks so much for responding. Unfortunately, my problem is indeed that the new note so created (with 'create new note in a new window' CHECKED) doesn't pop to the "top". It actually does jump to the top of the pile among all Evernote notes, but it doesn't jump to the top of my desktop if _any_ other program windows are in front of it (Chrome browser, Firefox browser, Windows explorer folders, etc). And that's what I'd like to have: to have the new note jump to the top of my desktop so that I can simply start writing. Can anyone else help? Does it maybe have to do with any settings of my taskbar?
  2. Hi everyone, I just learned that the CTRL + ALT + N keyboard shortcut allows you to create a new note from everywhere in Windows (I'm using Windows 7, 64bit by the way). But when I do this, the new note doesn't pop to the front of my desktop. It's minimized and lumped together with all my other opened Evernote windows, and blinking yellow: see screenshot. What I want is to be able to start writing immediately. I don't want to have to click on my Evernote icon and look for the new note (among all my other opened notes). Does anyone know how to solve this?
  3. Hello everyone, I'm using Evernote Basic and I'm thinking about switching to Evernote PREMIUM. But first I want to know if I can do this: -create notes in a PDF file using Adobe Acrobat or Foxit PDF Reader and then import the PDF in Evernote and then use the Evernote search function to search for the text annotations inside the PDF or -create notes in a PDF file using Evernote and then import the PDF in Evernote and then use the Evernote search function to search for the text notes inside the PDF I just tried the Evernote Premium Annotation feature (free trial for 30 days) but my text annotations weren't found by Evernote. Neither the text written with Foxit PDF Reader or the Evernote Annotation feature. Am I doing this wrong, is this a bug or is this not supported in Evernote PREMIUM? thank you
  4. By the way, I don't see any option for creating a table of contents. Where is it? Here's a screenshot. Can't find this option regardless of the view. http://s18.postimg.org/n4ebli7nr/sssff.jpg
  5. Thanks guys, I will try both methods! @ gazumped: hm, that could be a great method, but the problem is: whenever I want to add a new entry to my table of contents (my list), I have to create a new "table of contents" note, right? Or will the "table of contents" note automatically update itself whenever I create a new note in the notebook?
  6. Hey guys I want to create a simple list of things I want to do someday. For example -visit that yoga workshop on baker street -check out the music shop on miller street The thing is: I have flyers (or ads, or articles that I've cut out from magazines) for many of the things I want to do someday. But I don't want to bulk up my list with images/photos/scans/pictures because lists with images are too distracting. I want to keep the list simple, just text. On the other hand it would be cool to have Evernote show me the picture/flyer/photo/scan if I hover over the text (or if I click the text). Is there an easy way to do this? I guess I could upload all the photos to an external webspace and then make links out of my text entries, linking each entry to its corresponding photo/scan/flyer, like this: -visit that yoga workshop on baker street -check out the music shop on miller street But that's too much work. To cut things short: I want a text list. But I want to be able to link a photo/picture to an entry, if I want to. Is there an easier way? Or maybe a different solution?
  7. Thanks again Scott! And if anyone has a definite answer regarding please let us know!
  8. Ok cool, thanks Scott! But, one more question: what if an image containing text has been scanned by the Evernote servers, but no intelligible text could be found in the picture? Which one of those two icons you posted will show up?
  9. I read about the intelligent text-scanning feature of Evernote. So for free users of Evernote, it takes a couple of hours until a picture with text is processed by the Evernote servers. But how do I know if it has happened or not. Is there an icon or something that will tell me if a picture has been scanned for text?
  10. Hi, I'm a new Evernote user (free service) and thinking of updating to premium service. I'm not sure I understand all the features of Evernote. I would like to know how EN handles Microsoft .doc files if I import them to Evernote. Let's say I create a new doc file with Microsoft Office and then save it to my desktop. Then I drag & drop the .doc file into Evernote and it gets processed. Now for my questions: 1: If I make changes to the text of the .doc file in Evernote, will the original .doc file also be updated with the new text? 2: If I make changes to the original .doc file (using Microsoft Office), will the corresponding note in Evernote also be updated automatically? 3: What about image files? 4: And .pdf & .txt files? All questions are basically about whether & how the original files and the corresponding notes in Evernote are linked. I'm curious if it's basic linking & processing or if there's some kind of auto-update feature when an original file is edited outside of Evernote.
