  1. $30 water bottles ... LOL Given that Evernote still doesn't support the most basic of styles (H1, H2, H3, Body), the fact that Simplify Formatting and Clear Formatting clear the whole note and not just selected text, and bullets don't work with any reliability, I have given up on Evernote handling basic text let along Markdown. Byword seems like a great tool but the cost is prohibitive since I use multiple environments and it lacks a Windows version for times when I'm in that world. I'm still using Markdown though. My solution bypasses Evernote. I use Dropbox with a Markdown-savvy tool to view a formatted version (to make my visual brain happy) for each platform I use. Markdown and Dropbox give me portability across environments. Not as nice as an Evernote solution could be, and I can't get an overpriced water bottle, but it works everywhere I need it to be and it is available now.
  2. Got prompted today ... the "workaround" worked again
  3. The workaround (just ignore the request for credentials and click the elephant to start the capture) worked again today. I still don't think this is a cookie issue.
  4. The workaround worked again today. I don't think this is a cookie issue.
  5. OK, I was just forced to log in again and did the same thing as above. Bottom line: I don't know anything about the cause but the workaround is easy ... don't enter your password and just click the elephant again. Here's a visual: http://screencast.com/t/hOhHMk4Wwxq
  6. OK, here's a bizarre clue that I found accidentally today. I found something to clip. Clicked on Clearly. It did its thing. Clicked on the elephant to Clip to Evernote. I got the login credentials page. I cussed. I accidentally clicked on the elephant again WITHOUT supplying credentials. The clip worked! Confused but true story. Clipping on another page works fine too. It's like the prompt for credentials part gets temporarily confused but when you click again the code knows you're really logged in properly so it does its thing and resets whatever it is that causes the prompt. Just sharing. No closer to being able to make it happen on demand though.
  7. 1) Thanks for trying to help 2) If I had a problem with a setting/extension it seems like it would happen each time I restart Chrome, right? Nevertheless, 3rd party cookies are allowed. Here's proof: http://screencast.com/t/Qemom3yQ I can/will clear cookies but am confused why that would help. I have no idea what you mean by reset Chrome.
  8. It works fine after I sign in (i.e. the clip works as expected)
  9. Sorry for not being clearer Browncoat, Here are the steps ... 1) Find something I want to clip with Clearly 2) Click the Clearly icon. Wail patiently while it does its reformatting. 3) When reformatting is done, click the Elephant to do the clip. I get prompted then. http://screencast.com/t/txp7PLA8
  10. This problem still exists for me. Sometimes it happens daily but most times it's more like weekly. I have not changed my cookie settings. This started happening for me about 3 months ago. At present, Clearly is pretty annoying when I have to stop and login all the time. But you know that Hints: - I'm using Windows 7 with Chrome Version 31.0.1650.63 m - Clearly's "Options" indicates that I'm "permanently" signed in. - Here are my Chrome privacy settings http://screencast.com/t/dsxrIsqb
  11. Martin, At some point it becomes easier to just use the workarounds instead of Evernote. That's a shame. I use Evernote on an iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Windows computer today. I also have to have a text editor workaround on each device. That's a shame. It feel like Evernote has gone out of its way to enhance/fix about everything but its text editor. For example, the new reminders and presentation features are nice, but it would be great to get a little love in the text editor so we can quit looking at workarounds. I love Evernote but the text part of it is painful in places. I'm never going to use Evernote for Presentations, for example, because it's too painful to put the text together. I have to manually format headings, body text, etc. And worse, I have to manually apply the same formats over and over and over and over. Add in a few text handling bugs and it's pretty annoying. Adding simple styles seems reasonable and Markdown is just one option. I want to use Evernote for collecting and working on article ideas, then when it's time to move a note from Evernote (due to needing some capabilities beyond what Evernote is built for), I want to get the text out of Evernote quickly so I can keep using the text without a bunch of reformatting. I'm as big of Evernote fan as there is -- I'm a premium member as an act of support (not because I need the extra capacity) -- but with all the workarounds I have in place I'm starting to think my premium $$$ would be better spent on better workaround tools. That's a shame since the text suggestions are basic features available in all of the workaround tools I'm using. Just sharing my perspective on why things like Markdown are being requested.
  12. @Martin, I don't want Evernote to read/translate HTML. Let me explain ... I can already put a plain text note in Evernote today that uses MultiMarkdown syntax. Evernote just needs to add the ability to translate an existing note containing MultiMarkdown into ENML (either permanently or for previewing). Here's a use case: When I start a new idea on the iPhone, for example, I type in MultiMarkdown then make the choice whether to have DRAFTS (the iPhone App I use) convert to my MultiMarkdown to ENML, HTML, or leave it in MultiMarkdown. The decision depends on what I'm going to do next ... If I know I'm done and just want to store the note in Evernote, I go with ENML so it looks pretty when it arrives in Evernote.If I know I'm not done and will continue writing later, I usually stick with MultiMarkdown. Then I can grab the MultiMarkdown out of Evernote and use it with whatever computer/tool I'm using then. Sure I could use Dropbox and a .txt file but that gets unruly fast with multiple files in play. Evernote is a far better file cabinet, if you will. Instead of having to manually grab the MultiMarkdown from the Evernote note and work on it using a separate text tool, I'd rather work with my MultiMarkdown in Evernote (because I have it everywhere). All Evernote needs to do is give the ability to preview (in pretty form) the MultiMarkdown or convert it permanently to ENML (and hopefully a separate option for the equivalent HTML). Generally these notes will eventually get published outside of Evernote using Wordpress/HTML or a PDF file.Hopefully that makes sense.
  13. Lots of good points here. I use Evernote on Windows, Mac, iPhone, and iPad. I use Evernote as my repository for things collected, and I use it to store/develop first drafts of articles. The text tools are inconsistent across the environments and there are bugs. The one glaring need is for paragraph styles in all environments. They are supported in the mobile apps but not the desktop apps. It seems like Markdown can fit right in with styles. The existing Evernote mobile apps support headings, so it seems like HTML heading 1 <H1> and Markdown heading 1 <#> could be handled similarly for those of us who want to work in Markdown then eventually deploy outside of Evernote. With Markdown support, Evernote would be even more amazingly useful!
  14. Just adding a cross reference for future time travelers ... http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/36778-request-styles-for-evernote-mac/
  15. +1 for the suggestion +2 for the excellent explanation / use case
