  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. 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.

  3. 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?


  4. 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.

    Sorry to be so late to this discussion but I may have a simple workaround to get rid of unwanted double-spaced text: select the text in question, hit the numbering icon, then hit it again to un-number the selection and it will be single spaced.

  7. It's been almost a month. How come this hasn't received an answer? I want to know too!

    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?

  8. 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?

  9. 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

  10. I'm not yet a Premium user. My understanding is that, in order for multiple people in a company to have their own username and password to sign in to a joint company notebook, that notebook must be Premium. Is that true?

    Secondly, is there a way that, when each person in a company signs in to that joint company notebook, Evernote can automatically identify which notes have been changed since that individual last read the note? (Like most forums do for users.)

    Example: Jack edits a note at 9:22. Jill signs in at 9:24 and updates that note. Jack signs back in (or refreshes) at 9:26 and Evernote lets him know, by some visual mark or signal, that the note has changed since he last clicked on it.

  11. 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.

  12. 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?
