  1. In Day One you can set a password, but the data is not encrypted and can be read by anyone with physical access to your computer.

    See: Why I Don't Use Day One For Private Journaling



    I love Evernote, but it's preventing me from putting in sensitive content. For example, I can't keep a personal journal notebook, because other people (i.e. girlfriend, family members, etc.) could one day be looking at those notes, especially since they know that I use Evernote often for many purposes.


    Evernote already has the ability to encrypt single notes. This is useful for things like storing passwords or other temporary sensitive content. But it's not practical to encrypt many notes one by one.


    I wish I could password-protect a whole notebook. This way, I can do a lot more with Evernote. If I can encrypt single notes, then why can't Evernote just allow me to encrypt entire notebooks? If reason behind this is because Evernote thinks one could lose a lot of data if a notebook password is forgotten, then perhaps Evernote can help recover the passwords through email.


    In the meantime, I'm stuck with using other apps (i.e. Pages, Day One, etc) to password-protect my content.


    Any insight is greatly appreciated.



  2. I am happy that tables now work better in Evernote, but there are still a few frustrations. One is that the "grabber" -- the double-headed arrow  in a table column -- is not where it should be. You have to mouse over the column to find it because it's not at the column border where you would expect it. Instead, it's floating somewhere in the column.


    Another is that if I add a column, either to the right or left of a column, it cuts the existing column in half. That is not the expected behavior in other apps that do tables. Then I have to resize all the columns to accommodate the new column.


    Not really complaining -- tables are much better than before -- but it's a little annoyance I hope will be fixed one day.


    My client is Mac 6.0.9 beta


    You don't state which EN client you are using, but in EN Mac 6.0.6 if you mouse over just to the left of the column right border you should see a double-headed arrow as the cursor.  If you click and hold at this point, you can drag left or right to decrease/increase the column width.

  3. When I worked for a law firm, many of our clients preferred to incorporate in and do business out of Delaware because the income tax law is very business-friendly. 


    I'm not saying that Kuzma is doing anything shady, but there are those who do use the law for their own questionable purposes


    Kuzma does look like a real person. And, when I plug his name in with Nimbus Notes, I get hits. He seems to be someone in Cleveland and a "leader" of two companies.

    Or, he is the co-founder with an email address representing several companies.

    I am not sure what his connection is with the business park in Delaware, though. And, if he has been in business since 2007, was he running his business while he was an MA student (I am a little unclear about when/whether he graduated from this university in Uzbekistan, or what his degree was)? With the scant data we have, it just doesn't add up for me to a legitimate service.

  4. I have 8300 notes and LOTS of tags. I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one who finds them useful. In fact, tags are one of my favorite features of Evernote. 


    Tags are a simple way to organize notes. I use them like temporary folders. Everything I need for a particular day or lesson gets a special tag. When I'm done, all I do is select all the notes with that tag and delete the tag. I suppose I could put them in a special notebook and delete that, but doing it with tags is faster, IMO. I find notebooks less useful, only use them for general areas: Home, Work, Finances, Reference, Projects, etc., to produce fewer search results. I create shortcuts in the sidebar for any tags I use to organize stuff in this way. Shortcuts are also easy to add and delete.


    As far as maintenance goes, I periodically delete the tags which have no notes, look at the ones with only 1-2 notes and decide whether I need them. Easy to delete or change the name of the tag. If I have two similar tags, I just add one tag to all the notes and delete the other one. It does not bother me to have tags with just a few notes, as long as they are terms I would be able to think of when searching by tag. The auto-complete function in the tag bar helps me name them consistently. When I search by tag, all similar tags come up, so it's easy to see if I've got notes grouped under similar tags.


    I rarely have more than 5-6 tags per note, so the visibility of the tags is not a problem. Whenever I create a new note, I give it tags. I also search for notes without tags when I get a chance, just to see if I've missed some, and I sometimes do a key word search and tag the results.
