  1. I agree! Thank you so much for the note taking/drawing functionality. Saves me so much hassle, no need to switch between apps all the time!
  2. 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!).
  3. Agree, especially since it's possible (and apparently beautifully integrated) on Android. I am using Evernote to take notes in meeting sessions and was hoping to be able to go completely paperless by also capturing the ad-hoc diagrams that I end up drawing on scraps of paper. Currently, I am better off taking a photo of the scrap of paper at the end of the session. I can't even consolidate text notes with my Penultimate drawings after the meeting.
  4. Stuhrer: this helped me, too. Thank you so much. This bug is still around in 6.0.5, just saying.
  5. I'm running 6.0.5 and having the same problem, but apparently only with inline attachments. I don't know what JMichael means with "previously selecting the attachment icon" -- do you mean "right click exactly on the icon"? Because I can only select text passages (including attachments), but not the attachment's icon in isolation (and I don't know how I would do this -- single-clicking doesn't seem to toggle a selection).
  6. Thanks for the additional info. This is strange on several levels -- a 5-20MB file growing to 60MB and in addition Evernote claiming that the note exceeds 100MB. I'm not familiar with typescript and cannot assess whether the PDFs being typescript pages is relevant to the problem (I'm not sure if this refers to the text contents of the PDFs or the technology with which they have been created -- but then again, in the latter case, you probably wouldn't call them "scans of typescript pages" I guess...). To be honest, I've not used Evernote's build-in PDF annotation functionality a lot, so I just ran a quick test drawing 8 vertical lines on two PDF pages. This increased the file size from 395KB to 404KB. Adding 4 additional lines added another 1KB. This averages to maybe about 0.8KB per line, or, assuming 5 lines per page, 4KB per page. Extrapolating to 200 pages leads us to 800KB, which is way way lower than the 40MB+ you described. Very odd. I'm kind of at a loss here. Maybe there's something quirky going on with the note. Did you try saving the PDF to your file system, trashing the note, and creating a new, fresh note in which to add your PDF? Sorry that I'm not of much help here. Maybe Evernote support can help?
  7. It seems implausible to me that highlighting text in PDFs would increase their file size like that. What is the original size of the PDF(s) in the note? Are you using Skitch or a different tool for annotation/highlighting? I didn't know that you could highlight text which has been recognized by Evernote's PDF OCR engine (I thought the text would just be part of the metadata for searching, but not added to the PDFs themselves). You state that Evernote gives you a 100MB note size limit warning. What note size does Evernote show if you click the i (info) button in the toolbar above the note? What is the displayed total size of the attached PDF(s) in the note? Has this changed after annotating with respect to their original size? Addendum: As for using Evernote casually vs. professionally: There are a lot of heavy Evernote users on this forum. It's probably not a question of casual vs. professional use, but of the specifics (that's why I'm asking these detailed questions). I for one have used Evernote in almost exactly the same use case as you describe, just maybe with some other technical details: 1. Scanned & OCR'd a bunch (4 PDFs, ca. 150 pages total) of course materials to PDF with ScanSnap, put them in one single note, together with some other 6 PDFs (an additional ca. 250 pages) 2. Annotated/highlighted the details in most of the PDFs using GoodReader for iPad. 3. Added additional text excerpts etc. to the note. --> Total note size 25.3 MB P.S.: This sounds a typical use case for GrumpyMonkey. I wonder how you can mention someone on this forum so that they get a notification..? Something like an Evernote Bat Signal. ;-)
  8. I didn't properly answer your second question in my previous post. I've briefly tried out the Web slideshow feature I mentioned earlier. Below is a description about how it worked: First step is to open Evernote Web in the browser: https://www.evernote.com/Home.actionLog in if necessaryNavigate the the note which contains several imagesIn the toolbar, you'll see a "photos" icon (this is the slideshow function). Click it (see first picture below)The slideshow will start in the browser. Click the full screen button if needed (see second picture below)You can navigate through the sildeshow by clicking on the arrow icons, or by pressing the cursor left/right keys on your keyboard. Figure 1: Activating the Slideshow Feature in Evernote Web: Figure 2: Going Full Screen:
  9. I'm on Mac OS, but I've never used Evernote for slideshows before (web or mac). To be honest, I just threw "evernote slideshow" at google and the link above was the first hit. Didn't know it was there! :-)
  10. Why should forum users have to prove to you the nonexistence of something (the claim that slideshows are a premium feature). It works the other way round: where did Evernote claim that slideshows were a premium feature? But in any case -- if you've got a bone to pick with Evernote, not other forum users, please contact support: http://evernote.com/contact/support/ By the way, if you want cross-platform slideshows, you can use Evernote Web: http://blog.evernote.com/blog/2012/08/02/evernote-web-gets-image-slideshows-and-linkedin-sharing/
  11. Hi TicTac, I often have a similar situation (jotting down numbers in Evernote, needing to do quick calculations; I'm on Mac OS by the way). But knowing Evernote (the company), I doubt that this functionality will make it into Evernote (the software). (Make no mistake, I would find this functionality very useful) A solution to this problem which I would like to see is Evernote offering a plug-in/extension system (on Win/Mac). That way, other devs can program extensions like the calculation one; and Evernote doesn't become bloatware for the rest of the users. Edit: For quick in-note calculations this might be a workaround: http://humanized.com/enso/ (you select the text to calculate, e.g. "(20.8+390.1)/12*30=", execute the "calculate" command, and the text gets replaced by the result (if there's no trailing =), or the result gets appended (if there is a trailing =). No idea if this program still works, it has been a while since I've tried it. Edit2: To quickly open the calculator on windows, press [Win]+r, enter "calc", press enter.
  12. Hm, I've tried to reproduce the problem, both with a newly created note, and by deleting an existing note whose reminder date has already passed. In both cases, the reminders have disappeared from the reminders section (the one above the list of notes). This is on Evernote Mac version 5.5. Maybe it's just a glitch. Have you tried quitting and re-opening Evernote, as well as updating to the newest version? If this doesn't help, can you post step-by-step instructions with which you can reproduce the problem on your end with a newly created note? Edit: Me no English
  13. This is a user forum. While Evernote employees might read your messages, feedback about clarity of communication (or the lack thereof) is best directed at Evernote support: http://evernote.com/contact/support/ Regarding the communication in this forum: Metrodon has given you a link to a list of premium features: http://evernote.com/premium/ In your next post you state that there is no list of identifiable features. Did you bother to check the information that is being offered? Do you want help from other users at all? Personally, when I'm trying to help someone and (s)he decides to ignore the information I give, I think a little snarkiness might be appropriate. While it's understandable from a human perspective that once in a while, one needs to vent frustration or ask for expressions of sympathy, most regulars in this forum are here because they want to help others and solve problems. When they try to do so, and it becomes clear that help in the non-emotional sense is not welcome after all, it's frustrating, too.
  14. Thanks for the responses so far. :-) Good catch, thanks! I'm using the "old" version of Pages (pre-zip). It used to work, strangely. Hmm, in my situation, it's not about collaboration. I'm the only one using Evernote (only one client in this case, on one machine). To me, this seems like a different problem, my dear crossposter. Same problem as above (and same poster). Still not the problem I have. Good idea to refer to the original thread BTW. What I'm wondering: Did anyone try/was anyone able to reproduce the problem using the steps described in the original post?
  15. Evernote lets you open attachments in another application, edit them, save them, and automatically re-imports/updates the edited attachment. Alas, with Apple Pages, this only seems to work one time out of four. Has anyone else noticed this problem/can someone reproduce? Steps to reproduce: 1. Create a note 2. Attach a Pages document to the note. Make it display inline. 3. Open the attached document in Pages by double-clicking the icon. 4. Change a letter in the Pages document, save it. 5. Observe whether the inline view of the Pages document updates in Evernote. If yes, repeat from step 1. On my setup, it worked (updated the document) the first time I tested it, but then no more. Interestingly, double-clicking the attachment icon does open the modified version of the document (Evernote's edit export, I guess). But syncing and verifying with Evernote Web shows that the document has not been updated in Evernote. I'm on a 2007 Macbook Pro with Mavericks. Edit: When deleting the file which is being opened in Pages from the temporary evernote exports folder, it works again (but only once). Looking forward to hearing if others can reproduce the problem. Edit 2: I'm using Pages 4.3 (iWork 09), not the dreaded "new" version, which uses a different file format.
  16. Bram, with all due respect, but this is a user forum. You can't really expect other users to write up a how-to guide specifically for you, especially if the question has been answered many times in these forums, and you've already been advised on how to find those answers. For your convenience, this is the first search result when searching the forums for "restore time machine": http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/21651-i-need-to-totally-restore-from-time-machine-how/?p=110320
  17. If you attach a PDF document (like a scan) which hasn't been OCR'ed yet to a note, Evernote will make the PDF contents searchable from within Evernote. To determine whether Evernote should make the document searchable, Evernote uses criteria like absence of text in the document, file size not too large, etc. Details on these rules should be available on Evernote's support pages. However, when you export/open that PDF in an application other than Evernote, it will not be searchable nor will it contain OCR information. So, in order to have "proper" OCR which is searchable in Evernote and which survives export, you will need to use specific OCR software. If you have a scanner, chances are that some kind of OCR software is included. P.S.: Evernote does offer exporting a "searchable" PDF -- Please note that this is not the same functionality as exporting an OCR'ed PDF. This export contains only the text, without any images, formatting, etc.
  18. +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.
  19. On Mac, this creates one note per file.
  20. Thanks for sharing. No-one calls you a moron! I actually agree and ask for the following: Evernote, please give us real undo that works on all changes (including creating/deleting notes, etc.). Because: 1) Mistakes happen 2) Don't use a warning when you mean undo
  21. I upgraded to 7.1.2 and search functionality has been restored to it's previous glory (or disgrace, depending on your viewpoint). I for one am happy. :-)
  22. ...aaaand it has been fixed in 7.1.2! Thankyouthankyouthankyou!
  23. Upgraded to Evernote to 5.4.3, and it still works here: Mac OS 10.9, ScanSnap S1300, ScanSnap Manager 3.2.63 with Profile "Scan to Evernote (Document)"
