  1. +1 Devonthink To Go has inline pdf viewing BTW. The problem is that you can't search properly using two or more terms.
  2. The search engine is really awesome! But for the expense of these features: 1) Go to selected note is gone (Command+L) 2) Back and Forward buttons 3) Everytime you clear the search, you are back with the same page showing all your notes from all your notebooks. Before, you are back with the exact note you have searched earlier together with its appropiate notebook. Workaround: Switch to Card view 4) Advanced Search Operators ex. combining multiple tags like: notebook:medical -tag:"%IM" -tag:"ObGyn" -tag:research
  3. In contrast, i find the search highlighting productive since most of my notes are actual book pages. i guessed you removed that feature in the iOS. Please dont remove it in the future version of OSX or please make it an option. And if you could bring it back to iOS then it would be better, or make it an option at least.
  4. Oh, regarding my textedit work around, I discovered this amazing app! download the keyboard maestro 1) then bind f9(or any keyboard shortcut) to TextEdit 2) then bind f10(or any keyboard shortcut) to these and voila! searching made faster ala ipad! So here is my workflow, F9 to bring textedit then type my search then press f10 and presto!
  5. evernote99, may I ask a few questions about your Evernote iPad experience? about how many PDFs you have in Evernote? what is the average size? How do you store the Notes with PDFs on your iPad: All Notes/PDFs in offline Notebooks Selected Notes/PDFs in offline Notebooks None in offline notebooks -- read online as needed Thanks. Im not anymore using pdf for my books and references. I convert most of my medical stuff to image files. I mean PDFs for the desktop version is somewhat better because you can view instantly the page containing the searched item and I can switch immediately to another pdf if I dont find what im looking for. Unlike in the ipad, i need to click first on the "pdf icon" to show it. I tried experimenting searching on one pdf(200pages) versus images(same pdf file save as image in adobe acrobat= 200 jpgs) (both pdf and images OCRd by evernote) to find out which is faster. and i noticed it is faster on images. Perhaps evernote processes more resources with a pdf than a simple image file. for example, i search for the term "diabetes". With pdf, I need to use command+g to go to the next word. but with images, evernote will bring me all the pages which contain the term diabetes. to answer your question: i used to have 25-30 pdfs in evernote (plus 12,000+ more notes) averaging 15-70mb in size all are offline.
  6. wow thanks for this idea! it works! I wish skitch or pdfpen pro can do this "save to exact EN note" feature. Is this the only app that can do this? or anyway i can configure skitch to this feature too?
  7. Yeah, I'm also a health care professional. and this is also the way how I use evernote! I should have discovered evernote 5 years ago! :c
  8. Yeah I hope they will release a feature to toggle the instant search because the only way Im coping with the staggering search speed , is to type my search first into textedit and when copy paste it into the evernote search. :S
  9. +1! to OP, I think pdf can really slow your searches. Thats why I removed all my pdfs from my stacks or convert them into images.
  10. i just upgraded to premium 12hours ago. Few hours ago, i uploaded notes from my PC. and my IPad2 sync with that notes. Right now, when I used my Mac SL 10.6.7 and my Itouch 4G, I can't sync both my devices to EN server. My Mac was stuck on "Downloading 3.7mB" progress bar and my bandwidth meter shows no download rate. The same is truenfor my itouch, It just keeping on Contacting EN Server. I tried uploading a noteusing my iPad and the sync was success! I tried reinstalling EN on my mac but there was no improvement.
  11. just different. i'd like to reiterate a request (made many times) that evernote provide a breakdown of the features available for each client. Now I wonder, what advantages does the EN Mac has over the counterpart?
  12. And I thought Evernote is better in Mac than in PCs.
  13. I want this feature too badly.. I hope there is an alternative to this for the meantime.
