  1. Thanks for the responses. I placed the PDF in Evernote because only a few of the 92 pages have information that I need. Since Evernote will OCR the scans within the PDF, I can search for the information I need and Evernote will take me to a specific page. My thought was to then go to that page in the PDF in Acrobat or Preview and grab it from the other 91 pages. However, since Evernote doesn't let me know what the page number is, I would still have to go through most of the 92 pages and compare page-by-page.
  2. I'm on the Mac Desktop app. There are no indications of a page number. In your bottom iOS example, does "8 x 61" refer to the 8th out of 61 pages?
  3. I have a 92-page PDF of scans with no page numbers that I've placed in a note. Is there a way to tell which page of the PDF I'm on when viewing the PDF within Evernote?
  4. I published a notebook, took the URL to Chrome and chose "View Notebook." Everything looked fine until I scrolled the list of notes to choose a different note in the notebook. The more I scrolled, the more notes disappeared until they were all gone. (Sometimes, it will leave a very few notes.) It worked fine in Safari. Fixes anyone?
  5. That's shameful on Evernote's part; it really is. SIX YEARS and users are still fighting the same simple problem.
  6. Unbelievable is right! Sometimes companies are so busy chasing exotic new features and technologies that they just neglect the basics. Sometimes companies are so taken with enticing new customers that they neglect the needs and wishes of their loyal following.
  7. The school where I am does not allow access to bit.ly URLs. Can you post the long URL?
  8. I'm on a Mac with OSX 10.7.9. I'm using the latest version of Evernote for the desktop, 6.0.16. Something new has just starting happening in the last two or three days. When I try to edit a note and put the insertion point where I want to type, typing just one character immediately selects from the insertion point to the end of the current paragraph. Typing another character then, of course, replaces all the selected text with that next character. I've never seen anything like it. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone have any ideas about how to correct it?
  9. At once? Just this thread alone is over three years old!
  10. I repeat... "That would be fine, megsaint, IF what you typed [in another program] looked the same when pasted into Evernote. That's the problem." There are times when I'm dealing with single-spaced text and do something very simple like delete a line of text or combine two lines and, all of a sudden, I'm at double spacing or one-and-a-half spacing with NO simple way to get single spacing back. The frustrating thing is that Evernote seems to spend so much of its time on esoteric new features that can't be applicable to more than a small minority of users and ignores the cries of so many who want simple functionality. It can't be that difficult because hundreds -- perhaps thousands -- of other programs have those basic capabilities. Why not take some of the time spent on programming to capture new customers with exotic capabilities and spend that time programming to make the base happy? It really is a mystery. It seems it would take so little of your programming time to make so many of your current customers so much happier.
  11. That would be fine, megsaint, IF what you typed looked the same when pasted into Evernote. That's the problem.

  13. Probably b/c the answer has already been addressed in other threads. The search function is your friend. Believe me, I've searched. Maybe I'm not very good at it. Or maybe the search function doesn't work very well. But wouldn't it have been just as easy to simply answer the question. I've already spent a LOT of time trying to find the answer. How would you search for it?
  14. It's been almost a month. How come this hasn't received an answer? I want to know too!
  15. If I have a premium account I can have certain of my notebooks which I can allow others to share and edit. Correct? Can I control which notebooks they can see/read, which notebooks they can edit and which notebooks they cannot even know exist? In order for them to share and edit, do they have to have their own Evernote accounts? If so, do their Evernote accounts have to be Premium in order for them to edit the notebooks I allow them to edit?
  16. It would be nice to have an explanation of why there are such differences in platforms. If there is an expected date that they all will be consistent, that would be nice to know, too.
  17. I get this error message EVERY TIME I hit the "Sync" button. Just in case you can't see the image, it says: Sync failure: unexpected transfer error Synchronization failed because of an unexpected data transfer error with the Evernote servers. If the problem persists, please contact Evernote technical support. However, it does seem to sync just fine. Evernote 3.3.0; Mac OS Lion 10.7.4; MacBookPro4,1; 2.6 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
  18. On the web, I can change the color of the text but I cannot give the text a colored background. On the iPhone app, I cannot change the color of text but I can give the text a colored background. There are other things that are aggravatingly inconsistent between the web, iPhone app and the Mac OS app. This lack of consistency between platforms seems unprofessional for a company that has some of the most professional marketing I've ever seen. I think Apple has reflected the desires of users as they've continued to bring all their interfaces into conformity. I also think that Evernote would benefit by more communication and consistency between their developers of different platforms. When a user gets used to a feature on one platform, they want to (and should be able to) find the same feature with the same functionality in the same place on any other platform. To do less is to do its users a disservice.
  19. I take a screen shot of some text. I put that screen shot in a note. After Evernote syncs, I can search for a word within that screen shot and Evernote finds it. Evernote has converted the picture of the words into searchable text. Is there a way to copy some or all of that searchable text and paste it into another document as editable text?
  20. Thanks Metrodon. You've been a great help. Just one more thing... Where can I find out how to get my work notebook(s) into my personal Evernote account?
  21. Just double checking... Am I correct in assuming that all of that data is on the Evernote server so deleting it in user/library/application support/evernote would not mean I would lose any of it? Yup, apart from local notebooks that you can export first and reimport. I take it a "local notebook" is something I'd have to specifically set up to be local, right? So I wouldn't have any of those. That actually clears up my thinking a bit. Thanks. That's a useful way to think about it.
  22. Where did you find this limitation mentioned? It doesn't say anything about this is the search help notes, that I could find. I really doubt that's a limitation. I'm thinking more on the lines that the search just isn't working properly. Just go to the top right of this page, click on the green magnifying glass and type in "How do I sign out" and you'll get this error message: "One or all of your search keywords were below 4 characters or you searched for words which are not allowed, such as 'html', 'img', etc, please increase the length of these search keywords or choose different keywords."
  23. Just double checking... Am I correct in assuming that all of that data is on the Evernote server so deleting it in user/library/application support/evernote would not mean I would lose any of it?
  24. Well, for one thing, you can't search using words less than five letters -- like "sign" and "off" and "log." I've NEVER seen that in a search engine.
