  1. I agree. The problem I have is when sending an email (via MS Outlook) and I bcc my Evernote account, Evernote does NOT put the email header info into the body of the Note. What I expect, and would like to request, is that Evernote put the same info (that almost all email clients do when forwarding email) at the top of the Note body, like this: Thanks.
  2. I like your idea. Unfortunately a stumbling block for me is that many of my Notes already use the SourceUrl field to point to the actual web page source for the Note. I really wish that Evernote would support the notion of child Notes (records) that is so common among most full featured PIMs. It would be awesome to have a "Child Notes" tab in the UI that list all of the child Notes, using the same list UI that is used for Notes in general. Of course, each Child Note could then become a Parent Note, and have its own children.
  3. "Conceivable"?? Perhaps you meant "feasible". I'm pretty sure it is conceivable since OP did just that. 😉 IAC, it is definitely feasible, and, seems to me, one of the easier things to track for undo's. Just record the tag and affected Notes in a temp database. You might think an account with tens of thousands (up to 100,000) notes might be a challenge, but decades ago we had databases that could easily handle millions of records. Many advances in both DB technology and HW tech. since then.
  4. Yes. This is easily done with tags. You could create tags "Personal" and "Business", and tag each Note accordingly. A chief advantage of tags is that you can tag the same Note with both tags, whereas a Note can be in ONLY one Notebook. I use Tags as Pseudo Notebooks (pNB) , and I have ".NB.Personal" and ".NB.Business", which works quite well.
  5. Yes. See https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php For example: resource:video/* to find all videos. You can try other MIME types to get what you want.
  6. Well, anyone can make a wild-ass guess, and I would *guess* that you are quite wrong, that there are many more EN Mac scripters among paid users. IAC, I would hope that Evernote does NOT guess, but use some type of in-app measurement tool to get a better indication. Of course, use of scripts is like any other feature whose use largely depends on how well advertised it is, and how easy it is to discover. Microsoft, for example, provides a script menu item and a number of useful AppleScripts that come with Outlook. Other apps do the same. Scripting is really an advantage to the app developers as well. It allows each user to customize the app, automate the app, without the app developer doing much work after the initial setup of scripting. Scripts are much like browser extensions, except that every user can do some scripting with a modest amount of work. I, and other Mac users, have be enjoying Templates in EN Mac years before Evernote made them generally available. These Mac templates were fully automated, more so than Evernote's templates.
  7. I also highly doubt that Evernote will ever significantly add to scripting EN Win, since they have not even kept EN Mac AppleScript up-to-date as they have added new features, and changed existing one. If Evernote Corp wanted to really take Evernote app to the next level, then they would implement their own scripting engine, using something like MS VBA, and enable it to run in the cloud so it would work on phones/tablets as well as desktops. I guess it depends on whether or not you enjoy programming. Scripting to enable you to change and automate the existing behavior in ways that you would probably never get the app devs to do, certainly not on the time scale you'd like. I have highly automated and enhanced EN Mac using AppleScript, not only within the app, but with other apps. In essence, I've been able to automate entire workflows that cross over multiple apps, saving me hours a day, and eliminating mistakes likely made during manual steps.
  8. Of course, you can backup your Registry so you can restore if need be, but if you're really uncomfortable with making these changes, then probably it is best not to do so. Once you install Evernote on your new PC, you can quickly tell if any of the user settings are maintained in the DB. Frankly, I'd be very surprised if they were since this is exactly the type of thing the Registry is designed for. OTOH, this is how we learn -- stepping out of our comfort zone to try new things. Of course you always need to first backup, and carefully research and prepare for making new changes.
  9. Well, that's not the answer we wanted to hear, but I really appreciate you being candid and letting us know up front.
  10. I don't think anyone has answered this question. I'm currently a Mac user, but in my Windows days all (or most) of an app's settings were stored in the Windows Registry. It should be possible to find and export the Registry settings for Evernote, and then import them in your new PC. Sorry, I no longer have the details of how to do this, but I would expect one of the Windows gurus to come along and provide this info. Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
  11. @EhsanE, as you probably know, Evernote will ASSIGN the tags in the email subject, but not create them. Changing that to CREATING tags is a double-edge sword: If you make a typo or misspell a tag, then it gets created in error. Having said that, it could be useful. Perhaps Evernote could all double # to indicate create the tag if it does not exist. Of course, what would really be great is some type of add-in or helper for our email clients that allow us to select existing Tags/NBs, and create one if need be, much like happens on the Note Tag Assign block.
  12. I have made extensive use of tag hierarchies in my concept of pseudo Notebooks: Here is a screen shot of my actual tag list in Evernote Mac. Clicking on one of the tags will show all Notes with that tag. Unfortunately, EN Mac does not have the same feature as EN Win to show all Notes that have either the Parent tag or any of its Child tags. Does this answer your question?
  13. Do you really believe that? If everyone followed that advice, then there would never be any progress -- we'd all still be living in caves. LOL All real breakthroughs have come because one or more people were not willing to settle for status quo.
  14. Yep, it is truly amazing that after 10+ YEARS, 1,267 posts, and 302 votes, that Evernote has still declined to provide this feature. It is also clear that this feature appeals to a wide variety of users with wide variety of use cases as evidenced by the many posts. While you have had many different people asking for this feature, it is curious that the same small group (~5) feel compelled to keep repeating the same old reasons why users should just accept Evernote as it is.
  15. I agree. Agreed. I'd like to take it step further, and make it very easy to use/navigate this "Add Search option" via keyboard: (this is just an example; not perfect; to illustrate the idea.) The user presses ⌘⌥F, or cicks in the Search box, to activate Search The Search dropdown shows, but with the "Add Search Option" at the top. The "Add Search Option" can be activated by mouse click, or by pressing the ⌃+ keystroke When the "Add Search Option" menu is shown, then the user should be able to navigate/select the option of interest by typing the first few characters of the menu item This actually already works like this Once the user has selected the Search Option (like "Tag", or "Title"), the focus should auto move to the menu popup with further choices, so that the user could select the choice by typing the name (like the name of the tag) At this point if the user presses RETURN, then he/she is done and the option is added to the Search box But if then the user could press ⌃+ to add another option, or press RETURN again to run the search
