  1. My observation in terms of straightforward note taking is that organized speakers/teachers/presenters yield notes that are also organized. Disorganized folks produce disorganized notes.
  2. As I've noted elsewhere, I used the template as a planning calendar. I could also see them as being useful for event calendars or schedules. Sometimes you don't want the detail of a group event on a true calendar.
  3. I've used the Evernote calendars as planning calendar when working to move houses this summer. It helped to layout the two months. I could spot bottlenecks and empty spots where I could fill in with tasks.
  4. Near as I can tell the clipboard memory is strictly a Samsung feature. My Nexus phone doesn't have it, but my old Note 8 does. Personally, I wish windows had it! On my note 8 Samsung keyboard, there is an icon in the right corner that to me looks like a D-cell battery, but I think is a clipboard that will bring up that clipboard memory piece.
  5. In the past, I've found that if I have have a chart with bullets, checkboxes, etc inside it that I can't edit it on Android.
  6. Also, it has been my experience that very few users actually use the forum or read knowledge base articles or blog posts. So even if they satisfy some folks here, most nonpaying users never discover this workaround and decide to either stay or go.
  7. I stand corrected. I think it would be fun to go Firefly, but I can't remember exactly what was used other than "brown coats" and I don't think you want to be that. If I wanted to be snarky, I suggest reaver. Edited to add: I've changed my title, but I 'm going to follow the obscure geeky theme and pick a title from a series by MZB.
  8. I believe it was a reference to Firefly. I would have never watched if it hadn't been for some long ago Evernote employee and a silly title system,
  9. Find a month that the first is a Sunday, change the title to January, add 31 if needed. January is good to go.
  10. They made the calendars editable. And I'd guess that you already have templates for each of the seven variations a month can have. You just need to charge the month title and possibly add or remove numbers at the end of the month.
  11. I think the concern being expressed is in a complete and total failure of Evernote servers either due to tech or lack of money. Folks with a desktop install could export to html from the desktop. But mobile apps don't store your database just headers. If you decide to use the web version on your desktop, you would be wise to occasionally turn on/ activate the desktop software and do a sync. This would provide a back up in case of failure. You could then switch back to your two mobile devices and web. How often to do this would depend on how much you were willing to lose.
  12. One more overall thought. This might be a case where having a small dedicated notebook would be the way to go.Then each project could have its own note and the list of projects is always accessible at the note book level.
  13. I'm not sure it is that different. In your version each project has a name and some kind of button or open arrow beside it. You present the note and for each project you wish to discuss, you click the arrow and it opens that project in the note. If each project only has a few lines as you show above then your use case might prove more slightly more effective. However if you have less than a screen's worth of projects with only a few lines each project, the most effective thing to do in that case might be not to have any hide or drop down or link at all, with a screen's worth of projects, just list everything out. But if you have a project with more than a few lines of material underneath it or say meeting notes with third parties then I think the Evernote linking system is similar to the collapse feature. Let's look at the steps you'd go through in each system with a large project system. In your version, you click the project and it opens several screens worth or material or even more sections that you click open to reach whatever section or sections you want to discuss with the group. To move onto another project cleanly, you'll need to scroll up and close up each of these opens OR at least close the big one up. Or you could continue to scroll down in the note until you reach the next project. In the current Evernote situation, you open a similar note and click on a project. Instead of opening in that note you are taken to a new note where you may have more sub-projects that you may click to jump to. So far this is similar in ease to your version. How about going back? Use the back arrow button which you've added to your toolbar. This is the one place where your system might have an advantage because in your system if you arr close to the top of a section, you could just close the whole section in one click. On the other hand if you have scrolled down quite a bit the Evernote system will get you back quicker since you don't have to scroll back to the top. And the Evernote system has an advantage of opening each project away from other projects which might help with focus and possibly confidentiality.
  14. Notelinks are the way to go to replicate this sort of organization. Yes, in Evernote that will mean separate notes, but the effect will be the same.
  15. Can you talk about how well this software handles a variety of formats: especially Changes like multi-column pages.
