  1. Please search the board on the topic. IIRC, Bitqwik no longer works & is no longer supported by the developer. How can I support my product if Evernote refuses to fix the problem with their Windows COM API that broke it in the first place? You make it sound like I abandoned the project when it was my product that was abandoned by Evernote after spending years developing it. I can't make BitQwik work if Evernote won't help me and they clearly indicated they won't. They are the gatekeepers and I was tossed out of the playground. In addition I've had the sorrow of answering numerous E-mails for over a year now that I still get from people asking why they have problems when running BitQwik. I have answered every single one of them and have had to relive with each E-mail reply the massive waste of time and effort I suffered creating an advanced natural language interface that many Evernote users loved and had features that still are nowhere to be found in Evernote. That hardly sounds like someone that walked away from a project willingly. -- roschler
  2. Evernote has added a blog post detailing the changes: http://blog.evernote.com/blog/2013/01/11/evernote-for-windows-desktop-update-improvements-for-evernote-business-and-a-new-internet-explorer-web-clipper/ -- roschler
  3. Hello GrumpyMonkey, I think your mobile device is malfunctioning again. It's not auto-adding the proper message signature anymore, which I have included below: "-- This message sent from my Sandworm e-Reader from a local Spice planet belonging to House Atreides" -- roschler
  4. I thought the Business users out there would like to know that the latest version of Evernote has several business features. You may have already seen this if you have update checking enabled. If not, here's the new Business features as per the release notes: Evernote for Windows GA Release Notes Improvements: Ability to copy or move notes into Business notebooks. New Internet Explorer Clipper for IE 9 & above. Includes Evernote Business support, Article detection, selecting of notebooks & tags while clipping Import folder now works with Business Notebooks & Joined Notebooks -- roschler
  5. The Evernote video channel just posted a tutorial on Evernote Business: -- roschler
  6. I've just set up a shared notebook for articles/resources related to the use of consumer EEG headsets and improving learning and attention skills: https://www.evernote...chler/bcishared If you want to participate, please join the notebook. It only has one eight articles right now on using BCI (Brain Control Interfaces) to improve the attention skills of those with ADHD, but it will grow rapidly over time. -- roschler
  7. LOL. That's got to be a tech support first! The new AI assisted Evernote 2013. Automatically detects when you are getting sleepy and instructs you to go to bed. When you delete notes that you shouldn't have, it then sends you to your room. -- roschler
  8. @Davidlw, You have to create a Notebook Stack first and then move the desired Notebook(s) into the Stack. A Notebook Stack is a grouping entity that does not hold any notes of its own. It only exists to group Notebooks. You can't turn a Notebook into a stack. In the Windows client you right-click on a Notebook that you want to stack. From the pop-up menu you select an existing stack to add the Notebook to, or choose Add New Stack to create a new Notebook Stack. If you choose Add New Stack, you will see a new Notebook Stack created with the default name for a new stack, with the Notebook you right-clicked on as it's first member. Then you can rename the new stack to whatever you choose. -- roschler
  9. @C6REW, Pure speculation on my part, but doesn't it feel like the same syndrome of a hard disk retrying a long list of bad sectors incessantly, while copying a big file thus making the operation take an hour instead of a few minutes? I wonder if you deleted a bunch of items Evernote spent a huge amount of time retrying during a Sync and that's why it's sync'ing properly now. I'm sure they must have logs. It would be interesting to know if that's what was happening. Glad you're up and running again! You're a true Evernote Business pioneer. Also known as, the one who gets all the arrows in the back. -- roschler
  10. Sorry to hear that Soma. As I said I don't use it myself. Have you tried reporting the problem to them? That's about the only help I can offer. -- roschler
  11. Have you seen Sniptastic, for Evernote code snippets?: http://www.sniptastic.com/ They were one of the finalists in the first Evernote developer competition. I've never used it myself, but it seems to be what you are looking for. -- roschler
  12. Congrats on getting your data back Chris! That must be a gigantic relief. -- roschler
  13. And the beat goes on! Google lists top 10 Android apps of 2012: http://www.androidauthority.com/google-top-10-android-apps-2012-evernote-pinterest-snow-white-142743/ Evernote is #1. -- roschler
  14. Hello Jefito, Actually I never knew that. What kind of development do you do (application segment, etc.)? Right those too are easy for me to find. Some examples ("genetic programming", "BeginInvoke" (.NET CLR Runtime method name), etc.) For a great example of the more difficult search targets, how about code snippets or for example an article describing a particular technique for array manipulation? I have a vast number of such documents and like any document that describes a process or technique that doesn't have a popular and unique name (E.g. - Taguchi technique), you're snookered if you don't have set of lateral tags that occupy the periphery of the target document(s) conceptually when you go searching. -- roschler
  15. @Jefito, I'm a developer and I tag hundreds of programming, technology, and other high tech articles. Programming and other technical documents frequently are of the nature where there aren't a few keywords that you can use as "hooks" to remember the article. Instead of having an easy noun or phrase to grab hold of (E.g. - "Symantec", "Anti-virus software", etc.), you have tons of documents where the key concepts are usually represented by phrases consisting of very common words. If I don't tag them heavily it's nearly impossible to retrieve them since any typical text search using the common words that comprise the phrases that describe the concept(s) involved yields a ton of noise. That is why I learned/created the techniques I mention in my tagging techniques article. Without doing this, my note store would be useless. @May, My point exactly. -- roschler
  16. Excellent. Automator sounds like a great tool. What database field is the OCR'd text stored in? It's funny that so much of it had to be OCR'd unless you are referring to images embedded in the PDF's being OCR'd as opposed to the actual PDF text. The reason I say that is because as you know Evernote does incorporate the Foxit PDF filter so I would think that there should not be a need to OCR most PDF documents, that Evernote would just extract the text instead. -- roschler
  17. Yikes! How long did that take? Did you also make corrections to the reco'd text on the way? Sounds like a big job. -- roschler
  18. I wrote a guest blog post on Daniel Gold's Productivity web site on using Tags effectively with Evernote, especially when it comes to trying to find notes far in the future when the landscape of your memory has radically changed: 5 Step Plan To Better Document Tagging The methods described are not for everyone, but perhaps you will find something useful in the post. Since life is not very much fun without an opposing viewpoint, here is an excellent post on the same site from our very own GrumpyMonkey on how he organizes his notes with Evernote: How a PhD student uses Evernote to organize his life - with one notebook! He was once an avid Tagger and then went to a virtually Tag-free lifestyle. He is now a self-proclaimed minimalist who takes his organizational inspiration from Noguchi Yukio. (see the post for more details). Those of us in Tagdom will welcome him back openly after his return from the Dark Side of the Force. Disclaimer: I'm a Tag devotee and have over 4,000 Tags. -- roschler
  19. It will Jeff. Currently I make a list of all the Notebooks that are a member of a Notebook Stack found in a query and repeat the search (submit it to Evernote via the COM API) for each Notebook in the stack. Now I just have to use the "stack:" keyword. -- roschler
  20. Thanks Jeff! That "stack:" term isn't in the search grammar docs. I implemented support for them the hard way by iterating through the Stack member notebooks in BitQwik, now I can go back and just use the "stack:" term. Much more efficient. -- roschler
  21. There's Sniptastic which was a 2011 DevCup finalist. I've never used it myself: http://trunk.evernot...tastic/web-apps Note, I went to that link and clicked the Buy Now button. Instead of an ordering page I get a web page with a huge number of public snippets. I think they may have converted the product to a free web service for now. (at least for the beta period). If any Evernote staff or Sniptastic folk can fill in here that would be great. The Trunk page and their Help page talk about a Visual Studio plug-in. I think your best bet is the Help page: http://www.sniptasti...m/SiteInfo/Help -- roschler
