  1. In the legacy version, when you clipped data from a website, the source would be recorded in a hyperlink. Or you can manually add one.

    I know that the data is still there, but instead of a nice convenient link at the top of the page, you have to dive into an alternate menu of info with several clicks.

    I really like the convenience of having that link available and prominent. I do use it to go back to the source. I'd like to see that link back in the frame somewhere.

  2. From what I'm reading, there are some huge issues with Evernote 10 that sounds like problems to me. I won't rehash them here, but I wanted to know...

    Can I run v10 along with my current Windows (6.25.1) version? How does the new version save the note files locally? Is it different? Will the new one ***** up the legacy version?

    My note file on my PC is 4.7GB...will that get duplicated or moved or altered in some way that I can't get back?

  3. Yeah, that's the Classic. Still the best and most functional web version. Every time I try the "new" version, within minutes I run away screaming, it's so bad.

    I've noticed the same issue where only the first x notes appear, and then the list is blank. I really wish they would fix this. 

  4. I tried the new interface again to see if it's any better, and I still hate it. I hate the animating sliding tool bars. I hate that I can't have 2 left sidebars open...one to show the notebook list, and another to show the note list of the selected notebook. I hate the side bars sliding in and out. I hate that I can't see the borders of the notes, it just ends somewhere in whitespace around the edges. There is just so much wrong with it, I feel like it needs to go back to the drawing board. As a long time premium member, I fear that the classic interface may go away, and that would make me a former premium member. The "new" web interface is simply unusable for me.

  5. So this is a beta inside the beta?

    Very confusing. I wish the functionality would come to the old version of the web page, which I still use. The beta is a mess of odd animations, unintuitive tool placements, harsh color highlights, invisible margins, and too much white space. I tried it again to see the new integration, but I couldn't even figure out how to view a pdf inline like you can on the old web site.

  6. "We did a full rewrite of Skitch, and we didn't take anything out — there's just some stuff we haven't put in yet,"- Evernote CEO Phil Libin

    Well, clearly this is not true. Do you mean that there's an intention to include the things that disappeared in the new Skitch that just haven't made it back yet? Because that's a story people will understand if you communicate it clearly.

    "Skitch has never been and is not about to start being a drawing tool. People want multiple brush types... and photo editing tools like dodge and burn... but that's very low priority for us."

    I don't believe any of the complaints I've read are about such things, but about the things that were taken out of Skitch. Of course, you said you didn't take anything out...so something isn't adding up. What exactly is it that just hasn't been put in yet?

  7. Well, Evernote has an opportunity here to fix this and come out on the other side looking better than ever. I think most people can forgive a miscalculation, as long as they hear the users concerns and fix what's wrong, all will be better than ever. I have enormous good will toward companies that ***** up, but then do what it takes to make it right.

    If not, if they try to convince us that the reduced feature shadow of a product is good enough, then there are going to be a lot of disillusioned customers.

    Seriously Evernote, this is a defining opportunity to do the right thing. Trust me, there's a bigger upside down that road.

  8. True, you have to come up with something that works for you. In this case, with stamp sets each having 4 or 5 or sometimes even a dozen keywords, making tags for them would have resulted in something like 500 tags. That's just overwhelming and not useful. With the keywords in the note, you just select the Stamp Set notebook (to limit the search to Stamp sets) and then type the keyword you're looking for in the search box....like "frog" or "snowflake" or "car" or "flower" , etc...and it returns exactly what you need.

  9. And after creating the notes, I went through and added keywords to the text of the notes, like Christmas, Birthday, Hearts, Snow, Candles, Borders, Girl, Boy, etc....basically anything that would cause that stamp to be selected. When she searches for a theme or a term, those stamp sets come up.

    I'm curious... one of my biggest challenges has been figuring out how to fit tagging into my crafty projects/notebooks (How do I keep from having a million different tags?). Do you also use tags or simply rely on the note copy for finding things?

    In this case, I don't use tags. The note is an image, followed by all the terms in text that I could think of that I would want a search to find. It would be too easy to create an unwieldy number of tags, and it's actually a lot slower to add many tags to one note. It's also slower to find and select a tag than to just type a word in search.

  10. My wife is into card making...the kind where you use stamp sets, and cut patterns and emboss and created textures, etc. It's pretty detailed stuff. She has about 100 stamp sets, each may have 3 or 4 or even 10 individual stamps, and it's hard to keep track of what she's got and what to pick for a new project.

    So I set her up with Evernote, and took pictures of each of her stamp sets and titled the notes with the name of the set. Now she can browse her sets visually, and easily see which set has a stamp that she wants to use, making it easier and faster to find what she wants.

    And after creating the notes, I went through and added keywords to the text of the notes, like Christmas, Birthday, Hearts, Snow, Candles, Borders, Girl, Boy, etc....basically anything that would cause that stamp to be selected. When she searches for a theme or a term, those stamp sets come up.

    And of course now she also uses Evernote to take pictures of her finished projects and her friends' and can refer back to them for inspiration and ideas.
