  1. select multiple notes in new web interface?

    Similar issue. Combining notes, will this be fixed as well? With this new UI we cannot click multiple notes that means we cannot combine notes. Very frustrating, it would be wonderful if we have the option to revert to the previous UI. Nothing against new and improved, except we are missing functions we are accustom to using, and depend on using. Using web Evernote on Chromebook, Chrome OS update 2017-02-20, version 56.0.2924.101
  2. @baldbrian, I also agree with you. Allow me to add to your request, I want to setup a default From: address as well. Scannable defaults to my @mac.com address, however I want it to default to my @gmail.com address.
  3. all my scans are gone

    Hi gazumped, Yes, yesterday I turned in a incident report; ticket #1994149. Being as scans are device specific, they cannot be retrieved from other devices. In the past I used to scan then later send them to Evernote; learned my lesson on that. Now after the scan immediately they are saved to Evernote. Still, they should not be removed from Recent. In Advanced settings it reads "Recents, save completed and deleted scans on this device for 7 days"; my last scan was removed in day. Turn it off scans are sent to Evernote then deleted from Scannable; mine was on.
  4. all my scans are gone

    Tonight the same thing happened to me, opening Scannable it behaves as thought it is the first time the app was opened, the wings flap. Today I did scans, in there were other scans in Recent. Tonight I went to retrieve the Recent scans in Scannable for sharing with others, now all my scans in Recent are gone. Last year, 2016, this same thing occurred Scannable lost all my Recent scans. Yes, the scans are in my Evernote, however I expected to see them in Scannable Recent as well. In Settings > Advanced, it reads, "Save completed and deleted scans on this device for 7 days." Sometimes Scannable removes them well before 7 days. This is becoming frustrating.
  5. Same here, mine showed 621 days. My thinking is we first must authenticate with our regular Evernote password, did that now all is good. Hope that helps you.
  6. Highlighting on IPhone 6

    Hello csihilling, For those using Evernote in a browser your tip is excellent. Browser version of Evernote does not provide highlighting. Text highlight on the iPad and iPhone will appear highlighted on the browser as well.
  7. Since iOS 10 update Scannable crashes upon launch and when using the app. Today, all my Recents were there, then I went to again use Scannable it asked me to log in. When I did all my Recents are gone. We have uninstalled and reinstalled Scannable, did not help the crashing. On a side note, Evernote syncs between devices, we want Scannable to do the same.
  8. With today's update I crossed my fingers hoping the circles were replaced. My choice to replace the circles with a galley list down the left side to chose from. These circles are a terrible choice, difficult to choose a note from, where a list would make it much easier. Very disappointed in this update.
  9. Check out the Scansnap iX100. http://scanners.fcpa.fujitsu.com/scansnap11/features_iX100.html
  10. ios Crashes and losing note content

    Point taken and well made. I had initially found myself also typing 'loosing' but corrected it. Sadly I missed the 'loose'. I ended up googling it as I couldn't decide if I was just going mad.

Hi DaveMC, I too fat finger words. When I get called on them I slap my forehead. Yes, there is a Perminent red spot and bruse. My excuse is dirty trifocals.

    What about table creation and manipulation, are you addressing that as well?
  12. External Hard Drives

    Looking on the Evernote site for, auto import folder, here is a page with a number of hits: https://www.google.com/search?q=evernote+auto+import+folder+mac&rlz=1C9BKJA_enUS619US619&oq=evernote+outo+import+&aqs=chrome.2.69i57j0l3&sourceid=chrome-mobile&espv=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en-US Hope there is something there to help you. Cordially, RicD
  13. Hi Jet1 Two thumbs up! Have fun. Cordially, RicD
  14. Hi Jet1, Sounds as though you have a good plan. Here are two items you my want to look at, one is a quick read the other a 4:37 YouTube video, both relate to Evernote tags. Doing so may give you a jump start: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDMkYdPKA-o http://michaelhyatt.com/evernote-tags.html Cordially, RicD
  15. Hi Jet1, Thank you for your feedback, very glad it works for you. Here is a tip I received from someone else: create a notebook that begins with an exclamation mark, !. That will put it at the top of your notebook list. Mine is, !_Inbox. All new notes go there first, be they dragged, dropped, or ones I create in there. After doing any adjustments to the note I move it to my main folder, Ric files. Being as you are new to Evernote here allow me another suggestion: For my organization I prefer to use tags not folders. Why, a file can contain one or more tags, folders can become unwieldily especially when you realize your desire and need to have the same note in multiple folders (oh no, which folder contains the latest information, now I have to update that file in multiple folders). Yes, I have folders they are: !_Inbox Imported (created by Evernote)Penultimate (created by Penultimate a Evernote product)Ric files (this holds all my files)Skitch (created by Skitch a Evernote product)TrashWhen I want a file I search by tag(s), do not have to bang around in folders. When I did organized with folders I often forgot which folder the file was placed; often have a brain belch. For organizing your data here are many techniques. After many years with Evernote tags for me work best. Cordially,
  16. Hi Jet1, If the Windows version is similar to the Mac version I use there is not any folders in Windows Explorer as there is not any in Mac Finder. Evernote is one app. So, to drag files into Evernote first open Evernote then do as chiseling suggests. Now, with Evernote in the SysTray, same as Mac Doc, drag a file onto the Evernote icon. Again, if Evernote Windows operates the same as on the Mac it will create a file within Evernote using the name of the dragged file. Again using the Mac as an example I can drag multiple files to the Evernote icon in the Mac Doc (Windows SysTray). Evernote is smart enough to create individual files with the title name of each file. Also, when Evernote is open dragging multiple files into the open Evernote app Evernote creates one file with all those multiple files listed. There is not any separate Evernote folders in the Mac file system called Finder, everything is accomplished within the Evernote app. Maybe on Windows it works the same way. Hope the above helps you. Cordially
  17. After working on a note I decided I did not need it, so I deleted it then closed Penultimate. Upon opening Penultimate it displays the white Penultimate screen not those circle folders. Click the create notebook icon shows 0 Notebooks and 0 notes, type in the name it then shows that folder name exists. Went to Evernote, there I see the default Penultimate notebook that Penultimate cannot cannot find. Here is my finding: Penultimate cannot open any Penultimate generated empty notebook. To be seen and accessed a notebook must contain at least one note. Being as that named notebook was empty I removed it from Evernote, went to Penultimate then created the same named notebook. Because that new notebook contains one note Penultimate can see it. Yes, from within Evernote I did create a note in that folder, still it did not make that folder visible to Penultimate. So, each notebook must have at least one Penultimate generated note, or folder from within Penultimate one loses access to that folder/notebook.
  18. ios Crashes and losing note content

    DaveMC, "...I loose...", should be "..I lose...", as in loss and lost; notice they all have only one letter o. Why do I mention this, it is a common mistake that many folks do not know the difference. Lose sounds as though it should have double letter o. English is such a strange language, silent letters and all. Cordially,
  19. Scannable is crashing

    On my iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2, both running iOS 8.1.2, this app does not crash. If you have not already tried rebooting your iOS device please do so. Also, a uninstall and reinstall followed with a reboot should solve your issue. Still, TurboScan is a good product as is Genius Scan. Cordially,
  20. Myself, I want the option for either PDF or JPG. Depending what my use will be for a scan I truly need either PDF or JPG. So, having a option, such as Genius Scan provides, would be very welcomed. Cordially,
  21. mac Evernote Mac v6.0.2 Released

    I understand your point. The reason is that Evernote creates a table with overall and column-width settings in % like in this example extracted from the HTML or Enex export: <table style="border-collapse: collapse; margin-left: 0px; table-layout: fixed;width:85.54216867469879%;"> <td style="border: 1px solid rgb(219, 219, 219); padding: 10px; margin: 0px;width:24.96798975672215%;"> This is in my view the easiest way for a wysiwyg html/enex editor to create a table that looks nice in the first place and that nicely adjusts to the window when you resize it. The alternative would be to create table columns based on pixels. You also have to keep in mind that the table should look nice not just in the Evernote client you are using but also in other clients and many different web browsers. Again, I understand your point. I just want to provide some details why the Evernote table has this behavior and why it might not be easy sometimes to create a behavior that satisfies every user on every platform. Hi Stuhrer, Thank you for your input much appreciated. Truly I understand your well stated comments. Allow me to compare Evernote tables to OneNote tables, In OneNote adjusting the table behaves as one would expect. Both Evernote and OneNote have their own apps, so in my mind something needs fixing in Evernote tables. Regarding browsers, none of the Evernote users that I am familiar with run Evernote in their browser, the only time I do is when their app has an attitude. Also, in iOS I do run the Evernote app; do the same with OneNote as well. Again, thank you for adding input to my comment. Cordially,
  22. mac Evernote Mac v6.0.2 Released

    Hi ybakos, My Evernote notes are now all migrated to OneNote. Yes, it is a manual process and it took a while. The good news is I was able to delete many out of date, irrelevant, and unused notes from Evernote that I kept for many years. Wow that pared down my notes a ton. With my migration to OneNote I rethought my storage of notes and files. Evernote was used as my backup for all my files, scans, as well as web clippings and notes. All my files, receipt scans and the like are now in a cloud storage easily accessible and readable from my MBR and iPhone. My notes, and web clippings are in both OneNote, and Evernote, same files in each service thus I can better evaluate these systems. Evernote clipper is better than OneNote. Though for many years I was a Premium Evernote user, at present using both Evernote and OneNote I cannot see me again paying Evernote. No, I am not denouncing Evernote, however for me it was time for a change thus OneNote works well for me. YMMV.
  23. mac Evernote Mac v6.0.2 Released

    Being as we are now discussing version 6.0.2 I am bring over the from the previous thread the table issue. It is unacceptable: In version 6.0.2 Tables have peculiar behavior. Create a table, say four or more columns and a couple of rows. Adjust the columns width as desired. Now, pull the far right column right outside boarder to the left, notice the other columns are adjusting as well; not a good thing. My goal is to adjust that final column width, while the other columns widths to remain as I set them. Though these new tables are better than the previous table, this new one is frustrating as well.
  24. Evernote for Mac v6.0 and v6.0.1

    In version 6.x Tables have peculiar behavior. Create a table, say four columns three rows. Adjust the columns the width desired. Now, pull in the far right column right boarder, notice that the other columns are adjusting as well; not a good thing. When I pull in the far right boarder I want the other columns widths to remain as I set them, not adjust. Pulling in the far right boarder should only adjust that column not the others. Though these new tables are better than the previous table, this new one is frustrating as well.
  25. Sync problem

    Here-here! I too reverted to 5.7.2, and do not see any need to move to 6.x; been there, done that, did not like it. Yes the progress bar, who in their rabid mind thought removing it was helpful for users? Warning the next may be a tad harsh: Is it me or does it seem V6.x is more to fulfill developers thoughts of self productivity than to assist and enhance user experience? Growing up I heard when you want folks to believe you are working then make noise get dirty. Hum, could the same be for designers, regardless if features are usable and appearances are acceptable keep putting out changes, thus one may think activity equals productivity. At present I have moved almost all my notes to OneNote. Oh-sure, not as feature rich as Evernote, yet it works, is easy on the eyes, and more, also I all my eggs are not in one basket. On a final note, because of this v6.x fiasco I cancelled my Premium subscription; wow had that for many years.
