  1. Personally. I use both notebooks and tags. notebooks would form the table of contents; tags would be the index entries. It is a very simple system. Every morning, I have to make sure that all new notes are in the right notebook and properly tagged. I have a shortcut to this search that I use. The whole process take a couple of minutes.
  2. Well I am Ok with using the Legacy version for a while. But, sure, I will look for an alternative. With 300 notebooks and 40k notes, switching is a pensez-y bien! Notion seems to be very interesting and quite powerful. But my workflow relies heavily on the simple yet very powerful tag/notebook system.
  3. This is good news, although I must point out at least one feature which does not seem to be part of the Android or web platform, that I use a lot in the Windows platform: merging notes.
  4. Hi. Is there somewhere a table where we can see that features are included in Evernote, depending on the OS? I am especially interested to know which features are lacking from the Android version, since I will probably buy a tablet for work, and I am still on the fence between a Galaxy Tab and an Ipad.
  5. No. Will do if times allow..
  6. The web client is OK, but... quite incomplete.
  7. I was considering seriously the new Lenovo Chromebook Duet for handling my note taking during trips and surveys. Than I asked myself: does Evernote even have a ChromeOS version?
  8. I am having this really weird problem with Evernote on my S10 phone. When I try to open a PDF file, from within an Evernote note, the Adobe Acrobat splash screen will appear for a brief moment, then the phone will switch to the Cyclemeter app, tring to open the PDF file with it. The problem still exists after a complete reinitalisation of my phone. I wrote to Cyclemeter developers about it. Then I realized that all the PDF files elsewhere on my phone, or in a Google Drive, would open normally, with Adobe Acrobat. Only the PDF files from within an Evernote note would have this ve
  9. An issue I always had: I often add a note using my personal evernote email address. For some reasons, unknown to me, these notes seem to decide which notebooks they belong to, and they do a very bad job at it. Can we have the program put them in the default notebook?
  10. Still doing it. Should I upgrade now? The latest upgrades were heavily criticized last time I checked, but maybe most problems are solved by now.
  11. After checking the startup folder and the different shortcuts I use to start the app, I see no clear reason (I did not find any "install shortcut") that may explain this. It seems every time I restart the computer (once every 2 or 3 days), Evernote reinstall.
  12. Hi. Anybody had this problem? Evernote keeps reinstalling itself, each time I restart my desktop. I am using (308626) Public. I did not upgrade to 6.22 yet after seeing posts talking about numerous issues. i do not have much time to troubleshoot things these days. Thanks, have a good day.
  13. You are right, it searches within the notebook, i was confused by the text appearing in the French version which seems to imply that it was searching through all notes. I should have tested a bit more. Thanks!
  14. Hi. Although I use Evernote all the time (32 500+ notes), I am struggling with the lack of consistency between the editions I use (Windows, web-based, Android). How is it possible to search within a notebook in the Android client? It seems there is no way to reduce the scope of the search, while you can easily do that in the web-based and Windows client. Also: is it possible to merge two notes in the web-based client and the Android client?
  15. Don't worry, my English is what it is (not my 1st language). But to be absolutely precise: I mean searching (or filtering) a tag from inside a notebook. With 33K notes, I have to combine techniques.
  16. Well, in Windows, while in a notebook, you have this tag icon on the top of your notes list that act as a filter. This is a very useful behaviour and I would be very happy to see this tool in Android.
  17. I have a simple question: when u open a notebook, can u filter it with a tag, like u do quite easily in Windows? I could not find a way...
  18. It is the most unbearably slow software I have on Windows. By far. I used all the recommanded tricks: re-installing, indexing, etc. It is just a terrible experience. I have to use the firewall trick to make it somehow useful. ( )
  19. My iPhone 6s just died on me. And I am seiously considering the switch to a Samsung S10. How is the performance of Evernote for Android? I have more than 31,000 notes. And the Windows client is seriously flawed, from my point of view. Still, Evernote is an integral part of my workflow.
  20. Can u guide me through this? I'll do anything hat can speed things up. I have close to 30K notes and I am one of the users complaining a lot about the slowness of Evernote.
  21. There is a thread on the subject. https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/102926-windows-client-slow/?page=2 and another one...
  22. Please... make this software run instead of crawling... This is all I ask from now on. The features are already there.
  23. So... if you replace the Trash tag by Archive, at least mentally, you get the Archive solution a lot of people are hoping for? Seems too good to be true.
