  1. +1 on this topic ==>Overall, we're taking a system that has scaling issues and making it more robust. We're moving from a monolithic/sharded architecture to a microservice design That would have been a good line to add to the video to know that you are following this industry trend and give users visibility to this topic being a small step in a multi-year journey.
  2. Here, here. We should be willing to pay for services that make our lives better. (Full disclosure, I work in the SW industry). I hope (perhaps naively) it's not too late to put that genie back in the bottle in the Social Media space.
  3. Forking this thread deserves several ❤️ 's ! *Thank you*.
  4. Yep, that's how I read it too. <sigh>
  5. Thanks to all for the warnings about the first few sentences 🙂. I only got this far before stopping - "What the brain does best is thinking. Evernote is most valuable not as a remembering tool, but as a thinking tool." I would counter with David Allen's line, "Remember, the important thing is to get stuff off your mind and into a trusted system". It's clear the participants in this thread have worked to find a way to trust EN in a way that works for them, freeing the mind for thinking. Perhaps I am paraphrasing Allen, "Stress comes from not being able to remember where your stuff is". I don't think well when I'm stressed.
  6. I had this experience on Chrome on standard web pages. I switched to firefox (65.0) and standard web pages are working. I have not tried a PDF.
  7. I had never heard it called that either, but I searched "Helper" and found - https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005067 - huh, go figure.
  8. While I dabbled with EN's templates when they first came out, I had been working with personal solutions similar to @gazumped That experience (and yours @Wvit) along with numerous better ideas on this forum leaves me extremely underwhelmed with this new "feature" and somewhat embarrassed for EN's "hype" around the functionality. Having said that, I do have a very small set of 3 EN templates that I do find useful on my iPhone. For desktop use, I find the method described above >> useful.
  9. Happy to hear that + and that comment alone has convinced me to give this a try this weekend.
  10. Thanks all for the great discussion. I am currently most like @CalS for those topic. I might use reminders more extensively if there was a bulk update for reminders (as there is for tags). If it exists, I have not seen it (I used both Windows and Mac Clients).
  11. That has been my experience as well. Here is a screen shot from my Windows client -- most current GA version as of today.
  12. I use the the method that @CalS mentions (notebook dedicated to Offline notes) and can attest to not having a note that I wish I had. I am using it for offline reading on my Kindle-mostly web clips using the "Simplified Formatting". Unfortunately, when synced with the Kindle the right and left margins get clipped 1-2 characters. Notes look fine on other platforms. I haven't had time to search Android forums or report a bug.
  13. email is 'undefined'..... Am I the only person who has lost this feature in the new Gmail? +1 - I also experience this behavior.
  14. I had done this previously (see screenshot). I had done this for Google Drive integration (which I have used). I did not know that I had also enabled Gmail contacts (that I just tried and is working). It appears you enable/disabled all the Google services behind this single feature toggle. I had not noticed as I do not use the EN Web interface that much and as documented the contact integration only works in the web interface.
