  1. First - the following was written after considering and playing with version 3 since the day it arrived. My words are calculated and not from a moment of rage and firing off a note. Before the search explanation was replaced with the favorites bar, I thought the search features were minimalistic at best. As I recall there was no way to modify an existing search, which seemed silly, as needs change. The search explanation at least gave you a starting point for a new, modified version and you knew what you were searching for without having to guess. The removal of any facility to see your saved search parameters is ludicrous. Whatever committee thought that removing it was a good idea screwed the pooch. I say committee because one person surely would have been told to be quiet when asking "Let's remove a useful feature." Compromise seems a more likely culprit. Overall I'm pleased with the new setup. Even the monochrome icons are growing on me. But the search function is SO powerful and so COMPLETELY under supported. Why should someone have to learn how to type the proper search syntax? Nearly any email program you can name has a rules-based function with operators in drop-down boxes. Create a condition, add another. Fine tune and modify as-needed. I truly live and die by Evernote.Without it I wouldn't know why I needed to be somewhere or find my client's notes. However.... The search feature is bargain basement and stone age. It's like putting a crank-starter on a Mercedes. Nice car, but why do such a thing when the technology past that eons ago?
  2. Nah. Besides, I spent 6 months working exclusively in Vista. It didn't suck, didn't crash and Just worked. Lion makes me want to work with the machine. Snow Leopard feels, well....conventional to me now. Dated, even.
  3. For a full-size desktop, it's not really an issue. For an 11" or 13" MacBook, screen real estate is paramount. Plus - having a desktop that contains ONE window and WON'T allow any other to reside on top works for me, along with the left-to-right swiping between desktops. With OSX Lion, this is the first time I've not used a mouse on a laptop and actually felt better for it. Launchpad isn't useless without a touchscreen. I use it all the time and it's super-easy to find what you want. The reverse swiping while odd at first, has become preferable for me....took about 10 minutes. Not being a jerk here (at least not intending to be), but just 'cause you don't like it doesn't mean the rest of us won't love it or find significant uses for it. I've got a Snow Leopard iMac at home. Going to throw down for a touchpad and upgrade to Lion here soon.
  4. Now THAT makes sense. Thanks for posting.
  5. If this is accurate it seems a nonsensical attitude for EN, which is so flexible its ridiculous. This feels like backtracking and removing a fair amount of that flexibility. *shrug* I'll live with it until I can't and figure it out then.
  6. I like the new update but for one exceedingly annoying feature. Lack of list-view (or any view options) in Fullscreen mode under Lion. My workflow depends on a single click to view the note, and then one more to begin entering data. This mini-thumbnail view, while perfect for some, renders fullscreen mode useless for me. I know nothing is 100%, but if you offered three view options before - why not in fullscreen mode? Aggravating, because I really do like using applications in fullscreen.
  7. I'm quite aware of the warning. As I said - I wasn't paying attention.
  8. Ok, I wasn't paying enough attention and deleted one tag that had a bunch of subtags. When you do that, the subtags go with it and you can't reverse it. Had I read more clearly, I'd have seen that. Now..... My PC database sync'd with the server before I could stop it. So online - the tags are gone as well. However, I'm a premium user and have everything set for offline access. Both my iPad and iPhone have databases close enough to current that if I can revert to them I'll be fine. The question is - how to get the WEB version to be overwritten by the LOCAL version? Can that even be done for an existing account? I've logged out of EN on my iPhone and will do the same when I get to my iPad (shut off 3g/Wifi, open EN (no access to web now), logout), so when I open EN it won't sync and lose the 'correct' offline database. Beyond creating another account and syncin'g to that, and losing the old one does anyone know of a way to get me out of this dilemma? *****. This was a pretty relaxed Saturday......
