  1. Every few years you guys try and kill list view. Last time it was the Mac client and now the new web client. Please don't. Many of us use that view. It is very useful to see my note's tag and dates at the same time.
  2. Wow, 7.0 locked up on startup. I finally got that one working, and now 7.0.1 hangs on startup also. Come on guys! This is very very disappointing for an app I use everyday, from a company I depend on.
  3. I can repro the note not being saved issue in my 4s. The work around: 1. Close the keyboard first. 2. Scroll to the top and wait for the note to be synched. (The triangle in the upper right goes away). 3. Then close the note.
  4. Update to Evernote Mac 5.1.4 - the old list view is back, it is now called Top List View.
  5. The email 'syncing' of the iPhone notes app is actually a feature built into the phone. I'm not sure why it decided to 'turn on' all the sudden. Were you changing the settings of your mail account at the same time? Anyway if you go to settings ... Mail, Contacts, Calendars on your iPhone you should see that 'notes' is enabled for your mail account (or at least one of them if you have more). Turning that off will disable the sync to email if you don't want it.
  6. Understand it is not released code - just giving them a heads up. What device are you running? I'm running it on an iPhone 4S. My content seems to be saved just fine.
  7. When editing a note on iOS 7 every character I type scrolled the view up by one line until all the text is off the screen.
  8. I would vote for this. With Evernote's recent push into 'business' I hope they are at least considering this - it would be amazing for so many use cases.
  9. This thread seems overly hostile. Too much time spent arguing if the reminders are technically 'broken' or not. I think that the core reminders feature as currently implemented is useful. You can open up Evernote on your device, sync and check the status of the reminders for the day. For many people and use cases this is ok. I agree with derlinzer however that the 'notification' portion of reminders is NOT useful as implemented. Especially given that the mobile platforms do provide the proper native services to make sure you always get notified regardless of the local sync state etc. I think it would be more constructive to just focus on expressing our desire that Evernote please implement proper push notifications so we can trust the reminders feature to reliably 'remind' us.
  10. Seriously, thanks for bringing back the horizontal list view! I love you guys!
  11. Yeah the workflow on the HP Software can be pretty bad for some things. If you have Adobe Acrobat Pro - not only can you scan to PDF from there, it will also do the OCR and optimize the PDF. I actually think it does an amazing job. It can produce a file as small as 4k per page!! (Monochrome bill scanned at 300DPI with OCR). That is plenty small for a free account. In my version of Acrobat Pro I go to File.... Create PDF from scanner. In the document settings I use 'optimize scanned PDF', and 'Make Searchable (Run OCR). Do do the actual scan it pops up the HP wizard, and when that is done it returns the data to Acrobat. @GrumpyMonkey - Though I occasionally scan to text only for some stuff, I find that for complex documents with tables of data like bills and such I can't make heads or tails of it that way. In those cases an OCR'd / highly compressed PDF serves me well.
  12. I would also consider dropping the DPI. I never scan reference docs higher than 300dpi. The don't need to look perfect for me, just legible. Also, I can't speak for your scanner software, but my HP scanner software gives me the option of saving a 'text only' PDF using OCR. With this option it doesn't actually save only text, but instead saves all the text it could convert as text, in it's original location, and size / font that it guessed, while leaving any images it couldn't convert still in the document. The result looks almost exactly like the original formatted document, but it about 1/4 the size on average. So it's like a trade-off between pure image, and raw text only. I've been using the same scanner for years though, so I don't know if a similar option exists in other brands etc.
  13. Even though the list view has changed you can still view and sort by tags. Go to list view. Right click on one of the column headings and make sure tags is turned on. Now you should be able to tap the tags heading to sort, tap again to change the sort order. Note you may have to shrink the note view by dragging the bar between the note view and the list entries in order to make room for all your columns to show.
  14. +1 cmd+j is already taken by something I use all the time, but yeah a shortcut for links would be good.
