About Kip Ingram

  1. Yes, this is a nuisance. It's now 2014 and my Windows client still behaves this way. A major part of my workflow involves renaming notebooks, and I'd like for them to *immediately* appear in the proper new sort location. If I sync and check the web browser they are properly sorted, but they will stubbornly stay unsorted on Windows at least for a while. Eventually they'll sort out - I don't always have to reboot, so there are other things that can cause this. But this is a pretty sloppy bit of operation that I certainly wouldn't want broken in *my* app. Kip
  2. The feature I would value most on Android right now would be a solid pdf preview in notebooks I've marked as "offline."
  3. Yeah, I agree it's pretty lame that you can't delete a notebook in the Android client. And I can't Italy launch the web client in any of my Android browsers either. So it looks like I have no way of deleting notebooks from my tablet. Still, though, there is more good here than bad. I just created a notebook stack called Zapped and I delete notebooks by moving them to that stack. Thes on occasions I'm using the web client at work on s Linus machine I delete everything in Zapped. Less than perfect but plenty good enough. I'm still just in heaven over being able to preview pdf notes in the web version without manually downloading them, so the devs are aces with me right now.
  4. No, no, NO - please don't encourage the devs to think it's ok for something to be desktop-only any more than they already do. I hate how the emphasis is on the Windows client. I use the Android and web interface clients almost exclusively - I go to my Windows machine only to scan, and I'm trying to find a way to avoid that. Yes - choosing the thumbnail would be best, and having it be the first image in the note would be second best. Choosing it in any other way sucks eggs beyond belief. Also, if they're not going to let us see pdf file content inline in the web and android clients, then they really need to let us make the thumbnails big enough to read.
  5. Yes - or scanning to my Dropbox folder and then converting to JPG for upload to Evernote. :-)
  6. I am looking into doing this now, for exactly the same reasons, and I have found that the pdfimages command in linux will convert a pdf to a very nice set of jpgs. The good news is that the jpgs, once you've put them in a note and sent them up to the server, get OCR'd and indexed just as pdfs do. :-) I will definitely be trying to reconfigure my scanning arrangment to automate this, and if I can come up with a way to change all of my old documents that will be better still.
  7. It just occurred to me that this might actually be *valuable* behavior, because the web interface will display an attached picture but not an attached pdf. Do images get ocr and keyword indexing treatment?
  8. Oh the other thing that would be great would be smooth ScanSnap support in Linux, but I don't know if that's an Evernote job or a Fujitsu job.
  9. Regarding features that we need in the web interface, JUST TWO would make a world of difference. First, and this is the lesser of the two - LINK SUPPORT. Real link support, with the ability to create links in the web interface. Second, and I can't emphasize this strongly enough - PDF FILE PREVIEW / BROWSING in the note window. Having to open the attachment icon EVERY SINGLE TIME is the biggest pain the the keister imaginable. I scan tons of stuff, so most of my notes wind up being PDFs. This one thing would just revolutionize Evernote web for me. I have asked them for this several times over the course of years - no motion at all.
  10. I've tried NixNote a couple of times and have been very unimpressed. It's so *slow*. Too slow. And the user interface just doesn't even come close to rivaling the Windows Evernote interface. It just feels too clunky to use to me. I agree that we're never going to see an official Linux client - but I also agree that it seems bizarre that they see fit to do some of the clients they do while ignoring Linux. I think that they're simply showing the general "corporate bias" against FOSS. Linux is all about those "free software folk" - we want nothing to do with them... Never mind that Linux just beats the pants off of Windows in pretty much every imaginable way. The ONLY place Linux falls short is in precisely that area: support and backing from commercial entities. Just my opinion... Kip
  11. Well, here it is years later and we still seem to have *no ability* to do real links to notes in the web version. My understanding is that if you create the link using the desktop app you can then use it online, but you can't *create* a link online. This, and a number of other things I've noticed over time that seem like "obvious fixables," lead me to believe that the Evernote guys have some commercial preference that we use the desktop app. There must be some business "goodness" that they don't get from us as well when we work online. If that's not the case, and there's a better explanation, I'd love to hear about it here. :-)
