  1. I've noticed this issue creeping up recently when using document scan in iOS (iPhone 5S running iOS 9.3.5 & EN ver 7.17.1), that the images will appear distorted when viewed in EN on my Mac (MBP 13" '09, 2.53 ghz running 10.10.5 & EN 6.9 from the App Store) based on the size/ratio of the window in which the note is viewed. The images appear fine when copied & pasted into other applications. Thankfully the work around discovered 2 years ago by skevbo works, but this is a bug that still needs squashing.

    Thanks for the update Annah. I know it was a major plus for me when the option was added to EN for iOS to choose between higher or lower quality audio. If there's a clean way to implement this feature for Mac, I feel I can safely say this would be a huge win for many users.

    Thanks for the thoughtful reply. Knowing the reason why it can't be easily turned off is moving me toward the acceptance phase Thanks for the suggestion as well, though in trying out presentation view for this purpose just now I'm finding that data detection is still stylizing the text (albeit in a lighter, hipper shade of blue). I recognize I'm likely in a serious minority of folks who would essential desire less integration with the rest of the OS on this point, so I suppose I'll just have to roll with it as-is. Thanks again!

    Is it possible to turn off the feature where iOS seems to automatically format something like 1:25 into 1:25 (blue, underlined, and ready to make an event or show it in the calendar). While this type of feature is great in something like mail.app, one of the many things I'm using EN for is to help me memorize some texts that utilize a helpful "chapter:verse" system. This works fine up until 1:9 (chapter 1:verse 9), but by the 10th verse 1:10 turns into 1:10, which includes the formatting that I'm finding to be more than unhelpful at keeping things as simple as possible for the sake of memorization. Just trying to better get things from my external brain into my internal brain
  5. I had to search through the knowledge base just now to figure this out. This seems like an unnecessary move of a helpful option. Maybe it's a way to subtly encourage people to use Work Chat? Maybe I'm in the minority, but I don't really desire to use Work Chat... I would just like to be able to more quickly email a note. Simply put:

    Here are a few thoughts that I jotted down as I used the web beta for the first time. Summary points: As someone who typically avoided the web client and used the desktop and mobile apps exclusively, I personally see the web beta as an altogether different tool for interacting with EN.Seen as a different tool, the web beta provides a different experience that I see myself (actually) using in different ways.Since the U/I is so clean and open, inconsistencies are glaringly obvious. I'd say it could actually be even cleaner and more open.Given the massive shift in focus of the web beta, I think this is a great initial effort at providing users with a new tool.Incidentally, I sympathize with folks who see the web beta as a step backward, and I hope this interface does not spread to the desktop app(s) and wash away robust options I've come to find exceedingly useful.

    While it's not a perfect solution, I can suggest a work-around (assuming you have a smartphone with EN that records at the higher bit-rate): Set your phone to record during the call. If you don't need to type into EN during the meeting, then once the meeting is over simply sync your phone to EN, sync your Mac to EN, and then you can add info to the note with your audio. If you need to type a note during the meeting, do so in a separate note from the one recording the audio. Once the meeting is over you can merge the notes together. I totally concede that my suggestion is not ideal. Ideal would be using as few steps as possible rather than having to use 2 devices to accomplish what should be possible with just 1. This is still better than it used to be
  8. I had a similar thought that this would've been far easier to implement with tag sharing (keeping one note in one place, but being able to share and make editable through more than one way). Maybe someday
  9. Thanks for the speedy replies everyone! Given that these seem to be the only options for sharing an individual note... ...I think Scott & Grumpy are confirming the wall I've been running up against. If this is indeed the case, then it looks like I'll just need a lot more notebooks: 1 notebook for general information (shared with all applicable coworkers)1 notebook for client notes which have yet to be assigned to coworkers (access only for my boss & myself)... and notebooks for each of my other coworkers (for which my boss & I will assign specific client notes)This seems like the most efficient method given the aforementioned constraints. Am I making things more complicated than needed?
  10. Is there a way to share an individual note with another EN user and give them the ability to modify that note without giving them access to the entire notebook in which it's contained? Reason: I have a shared notebook for which my boss and I both have access to modify notes and invite others (via Premium). We need to be able to provide some of our co-workers with the ability to view & modify specific notes out of this notebook without giving them access to view the entire notebook. Incidentally, I tagged this post as both #mac & #windows as I use a Mac & my boss uses a PC (Windows 7 if I recall). Thanks in advance

    I would absolutely 2nd this as an option. A few months ago there were some folks who couldn't find the audio feature at all. I agreed back then that there should be an option to choose audio on the "create new note" (formerly "quick launch") section. I would still gladly trade out the photos, reminder, or list options in the quick-launch for an audio option. My rationale: creating a new note from a photo I already have on my phone isn't a situation where speed is crucial to me, but getting faster access to the mic on my phone to record an idea I'm having "in the moment" is very important to me.

    I've been one of these voices in the past, but this is odd that you're not still seeing any difference in quality. There have been several folks recently who have pointed out (albeit from a understandably negative viewpoint) that EN in iOS has recently upgraded the recorded audio quality in iOS (examples: 1, 2). I've given a viewpoint (here and also here) which had the same findings of those who've noticed an increase in quality, yet I'm completely supportive of this as a change for the better! What's odd to me is that it seems you're not the only one who is still experiencing the lower quality. Over the last few days I've noticed that audio record to EN on my Mac still uses lower bitrate wav, while audio recorded to EN via my iPhone 4 uses the much better bitrate m4a. Have you upgraded to iOS 7 and the most recent version of EN? It seems odd that folks using the same software version on the same OS would be getting different results. My only theory is that this is somehow device-specific (that iPhones and iPads are, for some odd reason, using different audio formats)... While I don't have an iPad available to test this idea, I can confirm that EN now records with m4a on my "antiquated" iPhone 4. ???

    The first thing I saw that made me think it might be better were complaints on the forums about the increase in filesize I tested it out a today on my iPhone 4 running iOS 7 and Evernote version 7.0.2.304425. When creating an audio note I noticed that rather than creating a wav file as before, it created a m4a. I then tried recording another take of part of a song I'm working on with iOS's voice memo app. After comparing both quality and filesize, both takes look to be essentially identical (.m4a, sample rate: 44,100). More importantly, both takes sound identical. Incidentally, I just tried the same test on the Mac app and it looks like it still records via wav, sample rate: 8,000 (and still sounds like I'm using a tin can and a string). It looks like EN should be the same for all iOS users, so I'm not sure why things wouldn't have changed for you as well :-/
  14. While I've seen several posts recently that have made good cases against the recent increase in audio quality, I want to thank the developers for making the change. If one were to search the forums, they'll find that the vast majority of discussion on the subject of EN's audio has been about how poor it was. While I still think a user definable option for audio quality might be ideal (maybe just below the image size option in Account/General Setttings/Note Editor - giving the choice between the old lower quality/lower size and the new higher quality/higher filesize), I think that giving users better quality is a step in the right direction. For me, the previous audio quality was often so poor as to be worthless. Instead, many folks like myself needed to record audio in a separate app, email the audio into EN (or import it through another means), and then merge the audio to the related note outside of the iOS client. The new process of "record > done" is *much* better. Thank you EN - you've made my day

    I have two things I think worth mentioning: I absolutely agree with the sentiment that it should be easier to access audio notes. On the quick note bar, I would gladly sacrifice either the reminder, bullet point, or checklist for an audio button. As for audio quality - I am in love with the fact that they have finally transitioned over to m4a. As a songwriter, I found the old format to be essentially unusable and found myself constantly going through the many step process of recording in iOS's voice memo app, emailing the file into EN, and then later merging the audio to the corresponding note containing the song's lyrics. This has been a headache for a long time. I feel like I can finally recommend EN to fellow musicians without any reservations. Having done the calculations previously, I know that I'll still never go anywhere near having an overage my premium allocation, so this isn't a problem for me.Something else I'll say though, for those wishing we could go back to the previous audio (low quality/lower filesize) is to rally for a user-definable option. If you'll notice, there's a setting in Account/Note editor/Image size where you can define the ability to reduce note size by scaling snapshots to a range of sizes. I believe this may be a new feature with the current release (I may be entirely wrong though). Giving audio notes the two options of either the older lower quality/lower filesize or the newer higher quality/higher filesize might make everyone happy. Admittedly, I'm not a programmer, and so I have no idea how technical it would be to implement the change between these two codecs. Also, while I feel bad for those for which the recent change in audio is a nuisance - I'm pretty sure it's a change that has made my day
