  1. Can someone confirm that as of 7/5/2021 Legacy and v10 can still be run on the same machine. In case it currently matters I am currently running only v10. Unlike many others in the forums I'm actually happy overall with 10, as well as the latest mobile and tablet versions. However due a few of the v10 issues it would be quite handy to be able to run either on as needed. Thank You
  2. Stathis, am I correct in assuming from the programs you listed as having evaluated that you need a solution that runs on the Mac?
  3. LOL, I haven't noticed a single meaningful improvement to EN in years. Nor a single meaningful statement. The good thing is they've set expectations so low that it doesn't even occur to me to even expect improvement, or even bother posting like a suggestion would ever be listened to, the only reason I'm posting here is I got a thread notification. If anything, the only thing I'd expect from a new release would be further destruction and dumbing down of the product, aka the "new" web version. Which I haven't looked at in probably 6 months since once I saw how they had destroyed that, but again, why bother? My use now is very limited, I don't use much any more.
  4. Edit: deleted my post upon further consideration, so as not to take this thread off topic.
  5. I just signed up and played with it very briefly. One of the better note taking products I've seen. It's possible I'm missing something but my observations are: Pros 1. Subfolders as many levels deep as you want. 2. Appears as though you can share folders at any level you want, i.e. what would be the equivalent of being able to share a stack in EN. Cons 1. No grouping of tags, that's huge. 2. In Evernote if you select a stack, you can see all notes in the the notebooks in that stack, that's an awesome feature. In Nimbus if you select a folder, you can ONLY see notes for that specific folder, not the notes in sub-folders. I don't like that paradigm for note taking, I'm NOT saying it's "wrong", just that I'd want an option in settings for selecting whether I want to see the notes in subfolders when I select a parent folder.
  6. Your point is legit, but without major funding, it's going to be very difficult for small start-ups to give out huge amounts of storage. They need to scale up and start making money before they can do that. And even then it's difficult, imagine that the product catches on and suddenly they have millions of users signing up. 90%+ of whom will be non-paying/free customers (yes that can be offset with ads). So any startup without huge funding is going to need to control storage for free customers so they don't get caught with their pants down.
  7. Hi Alan, I addressed the lack of cloud functionality in the cons section of my post. As far as it being in the "primordial stage", it is anything but. The software has been available for over five years with an endless series enhancements. It is rough mainly in the sense that the gui is not pretty and can get a bit busy, but that's not the most important requirement for many users, especially power users which is what this threads about. Not trying to convince you are anyone else to use it, but want to characterize it as accurately as possible.
  8. This is an old thread but another product to add to the mix is InfoQube. Cons: PC only (can run on a USB stick if desired), no cloud option, no mobile option. I think I might have read about some users using DropBox to keep it synced across PC's but not sure.No real tagging system.The steepest learning curve of any PIM/information manager you've ever used. This is a product for power users that are willing to spend some time learning. The online help is outstanding though. If EN is the triumph of form over function (which is what it is starting to become), IQ is the triumph of function over form.UI is not pretty and navigating between "grids" could use improvement if you have lots of them (closest EN equivalent is a notebook).Pros: A power users delight, it makes EN (and OneNote) look like a toy in comparison. With the exception of the limitations described above, it's power is amazing, and it can handle everything in your life, information (i.e. as EN does) PLUS outlining, projects, tasks, full calendar as well. Even though I've listed 4 cons there are really too many features and too much power to even go into, and it's so customizable it is amazing. So for Pros I'm not going to try to list a bunch if them.If the above description of cons doesn't scare you away, you can download a free version with sample data at their website. They also have a small but active user forum where dedicated users will answer questions. It's rare to read good software reviews anymore, but this one from PC World is actually a very good one for anyone that wants to read more about it.
  9. Sends boxes of chocolates. I got 3 different features implemented by sending chocolates. I found the Maman Intense to get the quickest feature turnaournds.
  10. Hey Lucy, thanks for your comments. However, I'm not sure what Google has to do with Evernote Tags, since Google is not involved in searching in my Evernote account. In fact, Google can't even see my Evernote account. At least not as far as you know .
  11. Hi Sandy, I'm not sure I understand the question as by default Notebooks are sorted alphabetically. Or do you mean sort notes themselves alphabetically? What Evernote client are you having the issue with? Windows? Mac? I have seen an issue where once in a while they don't sort alphabetically, I believe logging out and logging back in will usually fix that.
  12. Aaron, it's a jury rig but it works - have you tried inserting a bunch of dashes "----------------" in each column across one of the rows? Adjust the number of dashes to make the columns the width you want, using more dashes than you would ever use text, this way as you type text into them the column widths will not change. This will essentially "lock" the width of the columns. Edit: I just noticed the OP was posting from 2012. Nevertheless, maybe it will help someone else who finds this thread.
  13. I believe I may have seen some type of 3rd party add-on that enables this type of functionality, though when I looked at it, it did not look very smooth, as it requires logging onto an additional service. I agree this would be an incredible feature for the business product and would go a very long way towards turning it into a true collaboration product.
  14. I am constantly in one Notebook looking at a note/s, while wanting to open another Notebook without losing the focus of where I am. I'd really like to see an "open in new window" command when I right click on a notebook. Thank You
