  1. If this is really an issue you run into a lot, a hacky workaround is to: Select the note Cmd+A to select all text in the note Cmd+C to copy Paste it into TextPad or whatever your text editor of choice is Search within TextPad for the text you need But if this is really an issue you run into a lot, maybe there's a different way to organize your notes so that you don't need to search in page so often? I have been using Evernote for almost 3 years, have 500 notes, and I think there is maybe one or two times I've ever need to even search within a given note. If the note is that big, it can probably be split up. To be clear, I don't mean that as sarcasm or criticism...just a friendly suggestion.
  2. The problem is that I really don't need advanced spreadsheet capabilities. I just want to be able to do a table that I can change the size of later on. My use case is that I work in quality assurance, and would like to be able to list some test case ideas in evernote. So I'd maybe be able to fix the width of the table (I'd want test case description, priority, pass/fail, and maybe a couple other columns), but I'd need to add more rows as i come up with new test cases. Seriously...who actually knows exactly how big of a table they will need ahead of time? I have been working in software for 12 years and can't think of one time that was the case. I actually did know that I could drag a spreadsheet into Evernote, but in a sense, that's "too much". Now I suddenly have to have two programs open to do what I need to do. And if I'm going to do it in another program (e.g. Excel or Numbers), then I'm just going to save the file in my cloud file repository, rather than opening evernote and leaving it there.
  3. I often want to put notes in Evernote that are in some sort of table or spreadsheet format. I don't need to do any fancy spreadsheet stuff. Just raw data. The problem is I often don't know ahead of time how many cells I will need. And I often just need to add cells or tweak things. I've found the table tool included in Evernote to be completely worthless. I need to guess ahead of time how big the table is going to be, and when typing within the table, the formatting is just kind of...screwy. Does anyone else have this problem? How did you solve it? It's actually something I do pretty often in the 3 years I've been using Evernote, I'm kinda surprised this isn't something that has ever been fixed or added.
