  1. With iOS 9, you can ask Siri to "remind me of this on October 1/when I get home/when I get to my car/..." when having the note in question open in Evernote. "this" then refers to the current note. The result is a reminder in apple's reminders application which has the Evernote icon and links to the note in question. You can then go and customize the sounds etc of the Apple reminders application. Not very elegant, but works and makes location reminders possible for evernote notes (yay!).
  2. +1 That would be really handy. I'm currently creating an index document of notes dealing around a particular case number, and while Evernote offers to create an index note with links, it won't update that note as new related documents get added. A search link for the case number would solve this extremely elegantly.
  3. I also only use iPhone notes for occasional small things that are (probably) temporary. But I'm still syncing my iOS notes with Evernote because I'm a pack rat. Everything has to go into Evernote. Everything! NOTE ALL THE THINGS!!! Edit: Also, sometimes, temporary things become permanent and I'm glad I have them available everywhere.
  4. +1 for asking support or swapping accounts. P.S.: That post made me guffaw, particularly the P.S. I hope this doesn't make me a bad person in one way or the other...
  5. For what it's worth, you can use Microsoft Word to diff two versions (including formatting). Paste the two versions into two different documents, save them and use the Tools>Merge Documents function. @John: 1. Do you wish there was a better way to resolve conflicts in an Evernote note? (yes/no) yes 2. Do you wish there was a better way to share changes you make to your Evernote notes with those you are sharing them with? (yes/no) not really. 3. What do you think such a solution is worth paying for - if offered as a subscription based service: 15 - 20 p/month10 - 15 p/month5 - 10 p/monthNothingJohn, not to sound snarky, but I hope the "p" stands for "pence"... The complete Evernote premium costs 5USD/month, less if you subscribe for the whole year. For a good and easy way to resolve conflicts, I would pay an additional 50c/month. 4. What Evernote intergrations are you using already - mark all that apply: QuickOffice 5. Why do you use the product indicated in question (4) above: Edit MS Office documents on iOS.
  6. Every evening, I look all my current actions and give the 1 or 2 that I absolutely need/want to do the following day the additional tag "@MIT" (most important task). Also, I have a tag "waiting for" which I revisit every week or so.
  7. I'm afraid Apple doesn't make it possible for developers to make their app data searchable through spotlight. I'm sure this will make it into Evernote for iOS if it eventually becomes possible.
  8. Also, there's QuickOffice HD which lets you edit MS Office docs (but not draw as far as I know). It's quite costly, and some commentators didn't like it a lot. But it appears to integrate with Evernote ok (normally with iPad/iPhone apps, you can't open an Evernote attachment, edit it and save it back to the same note. QuickOffice HD seems to solve this problem by directly communicating with the Evernote server API). http://blog.evernote...-school-series/ Also see the comments for opinions.
  9. My experience with the scansnap's OCR is that it does a pretty decent job even with the "wrong" language selected. I scanned a bunch of german documents recently after scanning some russian documents, and had forgotten to change the language back to german. It still recognized the text fine. My guess is that the language-specific information is only used to disambiguate in cases when the OCR process finds it hard to recognize a word. For me, it's certainly good enough to make the texts searchable. I suggest you simply try scanning a couple of norwegian documents (e.g. with OCR for a not-too-similar language selected), then open the ocr'ed PDFs in Preview, copy-paste the text into TextEdit and look at how much the OCR got wrong. I think you'll find that results are quite good still.
  10. This happens to me too with Preview on Lion. I have closed the document window in Preview (but not e Preview application), and EN complains about a file attachment maybe still being open. I have to close Preview completely for the warning not to appear. Maybe it's not Word's fault after all...
  11. Count me in for a per-note toggle for plain-text vs. formatted. Would be great if the default for new notes (rtf vs plain) could be set in the settings, as well as different people seem to have vastly differing percentages of plain vs formatted notes. My guess for the non-working pastewithout formatting option is that all notes (unformatted and formatted) to be html-esque internally, so pasting "real" plain text would not display line breaks correctly and pasted plain text needs to be automatically converted n --> <br/>, but thats just an idea. BTW this forum software is so bad! I have to re-sign in every couple minutes, and then it doesnt redirect me to the thread i'm currently viewing,
  12. Way to piss off someone who is trying to be helpful. Can we please have a discussion where no-one is being belittled? Thanks. What I'm describing is how this is possible with today's functionality of Evernote. Evernote doesn't need it's own QR scanner to use this. Also, you're criticizing that you need Evernote installed on your smartphone to view the note. Well, this is the Evernote for Mobile forum, so I kinda assumed that this was acceptable. What I understand is that you're sceptical about real use cases for QR codes with Evernote. There are a few examples here: http://www.touchanote.com/ (just replace the word "NFC tag" with "QR Code"). And I am using them at home a bit, too (a link to a device's manual here, list of next buses leaving the nearest stop there, current shopping list at the fridge (to add stuff). Not all of them use Evernote, though. Some simply link to mobile web sites with a custom search query. Personally, I think that the value in QR codes is not to store static information (limited capacity! have to be printed new with every change!), but to link to possible dynamic information which, itself, can be stored in Evernote. They can also help performing "actions", like e.g. pre-fab SMS texts for particular situations that occur frequently in a particular physical situation, doing a particular web transaction, etc.
  13. I'm not sure if I understand the problem correctly. It should work easy-peasy. Here's an example for an evernote URL (from my client) which contains text and images: evernote:///view/7763999/s68/c51ee444-801e-48b8-8d32-8b7a9836d41a/c51ee444-801e-48b8-8d32-8b7a9846d41a/ To create a QR Code, you paste this URL into a QR Code creation tool like http://qrcode.kaywa.com/, and get this result: When you scan this code with your smartphone (of course not THIS example code, but yours), the evernote app should open and display the note, images, text and all. Note 1: Some QR Code scanning apps for iPhone only support HTTP urls and will interpret an evernote://-url as text-only. But there are many apps which do in fact support custom URI schemes like "evernote://". For example "ScanIt" or "QuickMark". The free and popular app "Scan" will get an update in a few weeks after which it support this as well, the developers told me. Note 2: If you can't find or live with an app that supports evernote URLs, or the codes are to large or difficult to scan correctly, you might want to shorten the evernote:// url by putting it through tinyurl.com. Good old tinyurl supports non-HTTP-urls (many newer shortening services, like goo.gl, don't). For this to work, however, you need a working internet connection each time you scan the code (your smartphone needs to connect to tinyurl.com).
