  1. It sounds like this is a shortcut to begin highlighting. On the ios app there are a few. The only one I use a lot (therefore remember) is if you type three dashes followed by ENTER the dashses convert into a solid line. This is a relatively recent enhancement that came out around the time Evernote 8 for ios did. I'm willing to bet it's a similar thing.
  2. I'm an ios beta tester. I've experienced random isolated occurrences of this happening too. I didn't submit it because it was so infrequent...I discovered it long after the fact, and I couldn't provide any solid evidence of the scenario it occurred under. Plus that when I found a messed up note I usually just automatically fixed it thinking I'd messed it up myself. I have a lot of ios devices and sometimes end up editing the same note on several of them around the same time because I'm in a hurry, and I get interrupted in the middle of creating a note. Then I just grab what ever device is convenient to finish something. My point being...I mess up a lot of notes myself! But thinking back to the times I was vaguely aware of exactly how this might have occurred...I think robert7 has nailed it. I'm constantly updating Evernote, or adding it to a new or newly restored device, and I think that this has always been during an initial sync...if that helps anyone. So going forward it might be a good idea to let the initial sync complete before adding a lot of new content. One way to tell it's done is if the busy circle in the upper left corner is gone. If you're downloading all notes for offline use then there are green lines under notebooks which haven't finished downloading yet in Stacks - Notebook view.
  3. Thanks jbenson2 for sharing my post about the nonEvernote version. I really love my scanner and made a YouTube video recently showing how I scan with it using an iPad. It's not a great video...but it may help to see it in action. When updating my article recently I learned that Amazon now sells both versions and they are really close in price. Both have come down in price...but the Evernote one more so because it was higher initially. The nonEvernote version doesn't look like it includes the bundled Adobe Acrobat anymore...which frankly may not matter much. I was excited because it's an expensive app but I've never used it! I use an iPad for most everything and I can do anything I need to with PDF's using things like Pages, Good Reader and Readdle's PDF Converter. I'm not sure of the volume of scanning you have to do dcaron1111 but I think the Fujitsu could handle a lot. I've been slowly digitizing all of our home records. Many File boxes worth of records as well as things like health insurance eob's, all my old Filofax calendars, even groups of photos, and everything has been easy and fast. My husband hates learning new technology and was resisting using it for years. He felt it was easier having his secretary do it. But I sort of forced the issue a few weeks ago and he was surprised at how easy it is and he's now actually using it too! I did read somewhere that some piece of hardware, maybe the roller, wears out after a lot of use and needs replacing. It's been several years now and there's no indication that we're approaching that point. One other quirky issue arose recently. Sometimes when I open the cover it doesn't immediately turn on. I found this blog which describes why not and how to get it to turn on anyway. Apparently with age a little button gets sort of sticky...but it's an easy fix too.
  4. I know what you mean. We forget it's there because there just aren't too many helpful things Echo can do for us. Although I gotta say...we were surprised when we asked about election result updates because of how current they were. Other than listening to the occasional tune my uses are as primarily as timer, a weather report and finding out movie times of those playing at theatres near us. Shopping lists seem cumbersome and the one thing that I really need still seems far off...Google searches! Or even Bing...because I've heard talk that's what Echo uses. I don't understand why it appears that with Echo every bit of content needs to be programmed into it when Siri and Google Now (or Hey Google, or whatever they're calling it now) can do web searches easily. Thanks for updating me!
  5. Did you ever figure out how to do this? I can't figure out how to add to newest info to the top of a note instead of showing the oldest content at the top either.
  6. +1 I've been a Premium user for a long time but it's only been recently that I've begun using tags a lot more. Since there's a limit to how many notebooks you can have...which I think is 250. I hit the limit about a year ago and spent a lot of time reorganizing to free up notebooks. Then someone in the beta forums suggested I use tags instead of so many notebooks...and I'm trying to do that now. But I only use ios devices, so it's slow going since tag usage just isn't great there. So I'm all for improving functionality on ios...actually not just for it...but want it...a lot! One suggestion I'd like to make to forum members is to consider becoming a beta tester. I've been a beta tester for maybe 5 years now and I love it! Each beta is run separately since each device type has its own dev team. Many of the betas are open...meaning anyone can join. There's some paperwork and confidentiality agreements. The ios beta is closed...meaning you apply and selected. Joining it isn't ongoing in general I think. I joined when they were recruiting new testers...and since I've been doing this there have been several more instances of that occurring. Maybe around once a year. We communicate directly with a dev leader and communicate with others on the dev team if we send them complex trouble reports that need more input. Our communication is via a forum just like this or email when working on specific problems. Everyone on Evernote's staff is extremely helpful and you get a true sense of the heart and passion of the company and staff this way. Plus that your ideas are heard and oftentimes taken under serious consideration. There isn't a lot of extra work involved, and I've never felt that my notes and data were in jeopardy in any way. The betas are usually pretty 'public' ready. I'm not exactly sure who you would contact if you're interested, but I'd be happy to find out if anyone were interested. It's truly a mutually beneficial relationship! Prior to beginning this I'd had a few occasions when I'd contacted support. Support personal are as helpful as they can be but I didn't get the sense that this would be a good avenue for suggestions or ideas...but then I wasn't really looking for that either.
  7. Thanks JMichaelTX for the SnagIt link...for some reason I can't quote part of that post. I guess my little iPad's memory is maxed out...it keeps adding the previous quote I used about public URLS. But I'll remember SnagIt this time because I actually put it in Evernote! I know you mentioned it before but I had no idea how versatile it is...that plus the fact that I have no working computer right now. But SnagIt does look pretty brilliant (despite its aesthetically unappealing name which kinda bugs me,) it could just possibly solve another problem for me too so I appreciate your patience!
  8. Thank you! That's good to know...and exactly how private links for YouTube work too...I think :-)
  9. Geez...now I've got something else to worry about? I put almost everything into Evernote....except financial stuff and passwords...unless I encrypt them. So, I guess I'm probably OK assuming some hacker can't use my or my families' medical information against us somehow :-) If they can...I don't think I want to know...
  10. That's brilliant csihilling! I just tried it out and it works beautifully...well at least it does on my end...we'll see what my Dad has to say about it. It turns out my last idea for a workaround didn't fly with him...when he received the emailed note with the attachment which was a .enex file (or whatever the Evernote format name is...I forget) the email spent a really long time downloading. He gave up after 20 minutes! He uses Gmail via Chrome browser on a new Windows 7 machine. So I know the speed issue isn't his computer or his browser. More than likely it's his bandwidth...he has a the lowest plan you can get from his provider because apparently the older you get the more cost conscious you become! Anyway...I created a 9 page pdf which I successfully renamed thanks to JMichaelTX. The little tutorial you've created and shared for us all is a perfect example of the kinds of notes I'm writing for my Dad! I really like to use Evernote for writing them because I can pull in different kinds of media and annotate screenshots all in one place. I'm curious about what software you're using for annotations JMichaelTX? I'll occasionally use an ios app Photogene for annotating screenshots...but Evernote's is faster, easier and more colorful. One other incidental observation...I needed to create a PDF of a webpage the other day and discovered that in ios 9 you can do that by sending it to iBooks too. In that instance iBooks actually does name the PDF too...although the name might not be exactly what you want. There was one odd thing during the process of Sharing a note using the iBooks alternative. When I selected iBooks as the Share option...EV asked me if I wanted it to be a private or a public link. That puzzled me because no link is necessary. I tried it both ways and the end result was the same. I'm curious if you all encountered this question too? I'm a beta tester for EV for ios...so it might be aberrant just due to that. Thank you all so much for your suggestions!
  11. Thanks DTLow. A lot of times there's personal information in the note so I've hesitated to create a public link. But I guess if it's anything like YouTube video private links where really anyone could find the link if they knew exactly what they were looking for...but the probability of that happening would be extremely low...it wouldn't really matter. Does that seem to be the case in your perspective? I guess I don't know much about public links. For example...could one end up appearing in a Google search?
  12. You can't use OneEdit Pro from within Evernote. What I do is usually save a lot of images to the camera roll (I'm almost always using an ios device) then open OneEdit and import them all into there...you just select a group of pics at one time but you can add to or remove from that batch if you want at anytime. Then I add several editing tasks...I usually use crop, scale and add borders, but you can add watermarks, flip or rotate, apply filters...there are maybe 30 different filters, remove gps info, change to grey scale, add image overlays...there are quite a few editing functions available...and then execute all the edits with one command. Last export them as a group back to the camera roll and add them to Evernote the normal way. It's a few more steps but a lot faster than editing each image individually which is what I used to have to do. Sorry I don't think there's a Mac version.
  13. Thank you all for your suggestions. I should have mentioned that I'm on ios not OS X. This is the only forum that discusses this issue at all...and believe me I've searched! Sadly, on ios you don't have the option to print to a pdf. I do use OneEdit Pro, an ios batch photo editing app for resizing photos. That works well when I need to resize pics...but most of the time I don't bother because the notes are just for me. I guess what I need to do is make sure to resize things consistently if I'll be sharing a note via email. But it seems to me it shouldn't be this much work! I think I found a work-around that will work for my Dad. Rather than emailing a note to him...I can export it and fthen add it as an attachment to an email. Then he gets an email that he can actually open in Evernote. It's not ideal for him because he doesn't use and Evernote and would just as soon get rid of it...but as long as he's relying on my to write step-by-step guides for him he's stuck with it. Because I haven't found a better way of pulling content together from a lot of different sources. My work-around seems to be better than using Work Chat which completely frustrate him. My Dad turned 90 last week...it's bizarre but he suddenly seems to feel a lot older! Thanks again for all the great suggestions :-)
  14. I haven't read through this entire forum...I'm researching an issue about emailing notes with images whereby the images are so large it's impossible to see them, print the email etc...there's virtually no good way for someone to read an emailed note that includes a lot of images due to this size problem. This is using EV ios for the original note's creation and having the camera image size in Settings set to Small. But I saw bounce's bulk edit in ios question and I have a great app I use for that. It's called OneEdit Pro it's $2.99. You can batch crop, scale and resize as well as add borders, text and watermarks. I use it all the time for rescaling images for my website's. It has a few quirks...one being that it may tell you an operation has failed to execute...but in fact it really has! I've not yet run into any actual bugs...just a few misleading error messages. If you do a lot of Image processing it's the best I've found and definitely worth the $2.99. My favorite ios photo editing apps. OneEdit Pro's Webpage. If anyone can figure out how to email notes with a lot of images without having the image sizes appearing huge let me know!
  15. I'm experiencing a similar problem with long notes that I write for my elderly Dad. I put together numerous 'how to' notes with screen shots I've annotated in Evernote, along with text I've written and sometimes links. I'm visiting him right now and I've only just realized that his intermittent problem reading my emails only occurs when they are Evernote notes I've emailed to him. He's 90 and he just can't seem to figure out how or why t use Evernote, so although he has the app on his Windows computer he never actually uses it (I put in there!) Work Chat sharing is just too confusing for him. When he tries to read my notes via Chrome on Windows 7 using his gmail account, some notes are so large he can't read them or even print them. Printing these would be a good workaround for him since he's 'old school' if the note displayed correctly in 'print view'...but it doesn't. Just a small portion of the left side of the note is displayed in the (Windows 7, gmail/Chrome) print view. I've scrolled all around these huge notes and I can't find a way to open the note within the Evernote app on his computer. If he could open the note in Evernote, that too would solve his problem as it would both display correctly and print correctly. My impression is that this is a recent problem because I've used this method for writing guides for him for many years and this size issue only cropped up in 2015. I use Evernote a lot for composing detailed, step-by-step, how to guides for him on a variety of tech topics. I love that I can compose these guides for him by pulling in a variety of data types to illustrate things, but these newish problems with large display size is really frustrating for us both right now. Does anyone have any ideas why this occurs and how to work around it? I gather from reading the above comments, that it's my use of images that's causing the issues. I keep the image size setting on my ios devices set to 'small' although frankly, I've never figured out how differentiating that setting makes much difference to me. Things I've tried include: 1. Opening the emailed note in the Evernote app where it would display correctly and where it would also print correctly. 2. It doesn't seem possible to export the note to a pdf format. Things I haven't yet tried: 1. Maybe I could try creating the note using Pages and then export it as a pdf both to him and to my Evernote account. This might prove to be the best alternative, but there would be a lot of jumping back and forth between Evernote and Pages for me since I can't annotate images in Pages (using ios 9) to my knowledge. 2. Doing the same thing as in #1 above except using the ios Word app...but probably I'd encounter the same issues as in #1 using Pages. I just realized that this topic is in the Mac forum, and my general usage is generally more skewed towards ios and Windows, but I do use a Mac mini too, and the problem is a universal one across all platforms I've used meaning ios, Windows and Mac.
