  1. other Evernote for Linux

    If you're going to quote Radio Gaga you really should be using the line "and just complain when you're not there" in this thread. :-)
  2. Thanks @Suzee.parker That begs the question of how the web app knows that what's on the clipboard is an image. But the rest of it is entirely clear to me.
  3. Thanks @pixelsnbits and do you have any idea how Google docs does it?
  4. Evernote for iOS v7.6.6 Released

    Thanks. You hid that particular light under a bushel. :-) But now it's shining in the open air.
  5. Evernote for iOS v7.6.6 Released

    I haven't been able to find out what "suggested notes" means. And I don't think I see anything different on my Today screen. Please elucidate.
  6. Well, there is no "switch to the Evernote app" if you're running on Linux (as my work machine does). (Discounting Wine and Windows under KVM.) So the only route is via an extension or a saved image file. I sometimes wonder about building a Firefox extension that would get round some of the limitations - such as subverting TinyMCE to get an image in. (Some DOM manipulation could probably do it.) I already have a GreaseMonkey script that does things like adding rows to tables - but it's not sharable :-( and doesn't do anything with images.
  7. Notebook Re-Organization

    I wonder if we should consider note "curation" or "refactoring" to be one of Evernote's areas for improvement.
  8. EN to Excel - Importing Note Body Text into Excel

    Well, it might be a string LITERAL limit - rather than a string VARIABLE limit. If so there's maybe hope because a variable can be - in most languages - strung :-) together from multiple shorter ones. Not sure how you do concatenation in VBA (and it's 30 years since I last touched BASIC so not keen to find out now).
  9. web Support for Tables in Evernote Web

    That's the sort of sneaky trick I'd pull. :-) Using DOM Inspector / Firebug / Inspect Element quite a lot. It's actually how I figured out that at intervals EvWeb just saves the HTML more or less "as is". "More or less" because the HTML has to be checked to do things with, pun intended, check boxes and the like.
  10. web How to hide checked checkboxes in checklists ?

    Last time I looked at the workings of the web client it was more or less publishing note HTML "as is". To do what you suggest would require either: Filtering the HTML. Applying styling with CSS that equates to "don't display this item".Not sure either is palatable.
  11. ios Evernote for iOS v7.6.4 Released

    Why is Work Chat even there for non-Business users? I wonder how many Evernote users even know anyone to share a Work Chat with? Or maybe it's not just Evernote users.
  12. EN to Excel - Importing Note Body Text into Excel

    Maybe an Excel string limit is 64KB (or 32KB but 64KB seems a closer match).
  13. EN to Excel - Importing Note Body Text into Excel

    Is this going into a single cell? Maybe there's a cell size limit. (Not familiar enough with Excel to know.)
  14. Correcting tag and updating.

    Semantically, Evernote thinks you've re-tagged - I suspect. "Tag refactoring" is something I'd like to see Evernote address.
  15. other Evernote for Linux

    @jjwells Private businesses can make business decisions any way they want to. Of the three things you suggested, they've said next to nothing: Linux client, web app note merging, Web app HTML5 offline storage. It would seem to me, though, that note merging is the easiest and most likely. But I'm just a customer of Evernote's (though an IT technical specialist of 30 years' standing).
