  1. Throughout my day, i go back to my overall task list--the one that slides out in the desktop app when you click on Tasks Early Access. To me, that view is cluttered as it's broken up by the headers of each note that contains a task. To see it all is 3 presses of the PageDown key for me Seeing a list of just the tasks would be nice. I love the ability to add tasks to notes. That's powerful. I just miss that consolidated 30,000 ft view that other task managers offer. UI/UX is an important feature. That's why I've been with EN since Mar 2008 despite all the competitors.
  2. Yeah, that was very helpful. My search for this topic didn't turn up this thread. Ian left this comment that isn't clear to me. Tasks created without starting a note first go into the Things to Do note. Yes, I can add text or whatever below or above a task but that just makes more clutter. Someone that other thread didn't like the clutter UX of the default task list. Thanks for the advice. If there were a perfect task manager, there wouldn't be a bazillion task/GTD apps out there.
  3. Thanks. I understand the design. I only wish it were a little different. My hope was to be able to have a bit richer content in the task view. I like seeing all the tasks at one time, regardless which notebook they are in or if just in the inbox. But I find the current display--fragmented by location of task--to be less helpful. I don't see the ability to prioritize/move up or down tasks in the all tasks view. You can move them within the note they occur. A master sortable list would be nice.
  4. I keep sensitive documents outside of Evernote (at their recommendation). I would like to link an external documents to a task related to that document by copying the path to the document into the task. However, tasks don't seem to offer more than one line of text and they get kind of ugly when pasting in a long operating system path to the external documents. I know I can embed a link back to EN from within the folder containing those documents but that's not the desired direction. So any way to include text otherwise in a task or as a subtask?
  5. I have been using the Evernote Folder Import action on my Mac. Once the file is imported, it's deleted from the Import folder. With the new Import Folder, it looks like now I will have two copies of every file until I delete the file from the Import Folder. So far it looks like a one-way sync; the file stays in EN after deleting from the folder in Finder. Is that correct?
  6. Thanks. I see the note size in Legacy but no way to sort by note size. It is the local size I would like to shrink. 13 years, mostly on premium, lots of useless junk.
  7. Having used EN since 2008, I need to cull my notes. Everything involved with EN is taking up dozens of GB. Why can't we have this functionality back? @EverNote
  8. Same question here. Seems that ability has vanished from the new Mac client.
  9. In MacOS, we have aliases. I created an alias to the Goodtasks app. The alias works when it exists as a file. But if I paste it into an EN note, it doesn't open the app. Instead it opens a Terminal window with some code in it. IOW, opening it doesn't do anything except opening the alias to expose its code.
  10. I am loving the new Home feature. I have my daily journal template in the Pinned Note. Very convenient. Is it possible to put a link in this note that when clicked will open another app on my computer? I want to open my task manager directly from my daily Journal note. My task manager is GoodTasks. It would be a link in my journal template like "GoodTasks" that opens Goodtasks.
  11. I use the pinned note feature in a new window. There is no keyboard shortcut to toggle between open evernote windows in MacOS. Any suggestions?
  12. I use my Home pinned note each day to create a new Journal note by opening it in a new window. I can't find a keyboard shortcut to move between open Evernote windows, so I have to mouse-click on Window on the menu and select the other window. Is there a keyboard shortcut for that or at least a way to create one?
