  1. I would also pipe in that I do NOT like this " feature". I take all kinds of technical notes with weird combinations of characters. I was just trying to add a note the needed ":p" (linux shell command option) and the EN app kept trying to convert it to some kind of block icon or something. Pissed away 1/2 hr or so before figuring out a way around it. Totally productivity killer.
  2. Thanks for the topic push! (BMXer_V, hit the upvote button please [top left].)This issue still annoys and messes me up ever time I make a note! Keep pushing people. Changing code in software (back to what it was) is really hard when you're a professional programmer...
  3. Looks like you're correct regarding the * being ignored. I used to use the filename: to search out by extension so they must have changed it at some point (haven't used it for probably >1yr). The server load argument (from them not you!) is a little weak; every linux, programming language, and editor, can pretty much do regular expressions and the algorithm(s) have been optimized for decades so they usually lightening fast... I would assume the vast majority of users don't use the web interface so the load would be on their device anyway and not EN servers.
  4. Regarding Dave-in-Decatur's hack (thanks!), I've found that just doubling up on the character suppresses the auto-formatting , then enter your space, then your text. Works and might be a little quicker and it's still almost the same as what we're used to (although I don't want to HAVE to do this!) Example: ** how is this -- You got me Yes, this issue is a major PITA and should absolutely be disableable. Let me dream...could we be allowed to program the tab spacing??? Android 8.6.1
  5. I agree, that I do NOT want magic/predetermined bullet formatting. I've been using the much simpler single characters (*, -, +, ., etc.) for years to make brief mobile outlines and then use these characters to search my ever-growing note archive. (Been doing this since the 80's!) Now I either have to come up some new character scheme (which hurts my brain and kills my workflow) or have half my notes pushed off the screen to the right due to the large indenting. Plus, you get the same bullet for '*' and a '-' so now I can't differentiate the two in my note. Since I'm usually on mobile I've only been using 2 or 3 spaces for indent (manually entered, of course). It would be nice to at least: 1) be able to toggle on/off auto-bulletting, and 2) be able to determine the tab spacing (a guy can dream, right). I understand that this is not really an issue on Desk, just Android.
  6. Thanks everyone! With your advice I think I got the .bin search mostly working by using: *.bin resource:application/octet-stream Without the *.bin at the beginning it seems to find other notes with .exe, .ini, and .jpg's (I guess they look like binary streams). Those get filtered out by adding the *.bin string. So I'm guessing the filename:<string> has been deprecated, or maybe it's just another "feature" that quietly disappeared...
  7. I commonly have used EN for years to store various file attachments with my notes such as the common .doc or .txt, but I also use others like .bin, .hex, etc. I used to be able to search for filename:"*.bin" to find the.bin files, for example. Apparently (according to my notes on this issue) I've also been successful using "(.bin)" in the past . Now none of these options seems to work for me on Win7, Web, or Android. Can someone please enlighten me as to what the trick is to perform this action?
  8. Yes! I find this a constant annoyance. If you have short notes it's no big deal but the longer your note is the bigger pain/waste of time it is.
  9. +1 here as well. I create service and activity reports that need this feature.
  10. Yes, please add this function. I would find it very useful as I take field notes and have to do this manually all the time. BTW, I only need a date string not the time (but putting date & time would be better than nothing as time could be easily backspaced/delete the un-needed portion). Ideally the user could configure the default string to their liking.
  11. That's a good idea, and I would assume that would work as long as you don't fully delete the note (I guess in that case it should show up in the Trash though), but it must be implemented from the Desk client. Since this is the Android forum it would be great if there was an Android solution. I don't see either History or Trash on the Android client. Am I missing it?
  12. +1! I've killed a few notes by accidental keyboard actions. Then panicked, killed the sync process, got to my desktop and modified it there to ensure it doesn't get deleted. PITA, and big time waster. I'm not always near my desktop either. This is a standard program feature from the '90's.
  13. I would also put my vote in for offline search. I'm a premium member and, having a local mobile copy of everything, was quite surprised that to find that I couldn't search my data without a connection. I do service work (semiconductor equipment repair) and have been using EN to archive my service notes. My shop has marginal cell signal and drops to 1x or nothing so when I try to search from there it may either fail or just takes forever. It's frustrating when I know all the data is right there on my phone but I can't access it. I could understand maybe not doing all the OCR indexes, but if you could at least search the titles, tags, attributes, etc. (the "hard" data) that would be better than nothing. (I haven't tested all of this, btw.) Of course being able to search everything is why I find EN so useful!
