  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. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. Window beta 5.6.2

  10. Did I create this profile...or my son? I'm trying to figure out if I've already joined the Evernote Forums.
