  1. I like choices too but I don't see why in this case the "simplified" templating function should need to be awful to edit in order to be simple. From my point of view the simplified process can stay the way it is now, with all its advantages. All that is really needed to support the not uncommon use case of editing a template is an option to access the list of templates without having to create a new note and a context menu entry to edit a template without having to create a new note. I don't see how that complicates anything, on the contrary the way it is implemented now is a major complication of the simple process of editing a template.
  2. I got this message today and ended up copy&pasting the note to a code editor (sublime text). There I noticed that it contained a strange Unicode symbol, obviously something that got copy&pasted from somewhere. After deleting the symbol and reinserting the note into evernote (had done it before deleting the symbol without success), the message disappeared, leading me to the assumption that evernote had problems with that Unicode symbol. So in case you copy&paste something from somewhere and the note starts giving "note is invalid" messages, it just might be that some obscure symbol got pasted which evernote doesn't come to terms with.
  3. I'd like to second that request. I really like the note linking feature and find it really cumbersome to use when comparing it with other systems. I see that the non-uniqueness of note names gives a nice degree of freedom, which, though not strictly necessary, I can imagine people might miss. However the idea of Jeff with some sort of dialog where you can choose the note you want to link to would be great. The process could be something like this: 1. Highlight text you want to use as link 2. Press button or keyboard shortcut for "Add Link" 3. Reuse the evernote search but "in place": 3.1. A search field opens with pretty much the same functionality as the default evernote search 3.2. Below the search field a list is opened which is similar to the excerpt view (or whatever its called, only have the german version atm) 4. Enter search phrases 4.1. Just like now the result list will be filtered automatically 5. Click on the list entry you want to use or use the appropriate keyboard shortcut (you could use "alfred" like shortcuts for the list items, if you don't know alfred its a mac app with which you can search for anything - apps, web pages, documents and so on. I personally use it mainly as a quick app starter. Alfred displays search results in a list you can either click on, navigate to with error keys or press apple+1 to apple+0 as a dynamic shortcut. one thing evernote could also learn from alfred is that alfred remembers for every search what your chosen result was, and on your next search that result will move up the list faster so for things you often need you will end up needing only one or two letters to have them at the top of the list. And of course the topmost list item is automatically chosen when pressing enter, saving you one selection click or keypress.) This "in place" process would eliminate the current extra steps of needing to right-click -> create link -> paste link, and in my eyes would really speed up linking. And since most functionality is already there, it doesn't seem like it would be very hard/costly to implement.
