  1. Penultimate 6.2.1 Released

    There seems to be a great deal of interest in Evernote improving its support for pencil-based notes. Penultimate has so much going for it, eg automatic EN syncing, so why not continue to update? Based on focus on iPad pros at WWDC. The next version of IOS will be even more pencil-friendly, I think that this is a chance for EN to position itself as the best notes destination for sketches done using Apple Pencil. Please improve support for apple pencil, get rid of (or allow user to disable) magnification mode, allow users to annotate PDFS, and let users assign tags to each notebook within Penultimate.
  2. Evernote for iOS 8.2 Released

    Current beta 8.2 is acting much more erratically than previous version on my iPad Pro. * add photo doesn't work. Photo identified in dialog but is not placed in note. * EN returns to "all notes" display, even after search / tag filter has been applied in previous visit to EN. * Syncing is slow, resulting in app being unresponsive when accessed. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED because mobile workers need 'just in time' access to their notes! * Some notes do not show their content. App unresponsive except for circling 'wait' icon until app is stopped. (Up swipe) and relaunched. Note content can then be accessed (after re-searching for note.)
  3. The Benefit of Using Tags

    Good questions. Using the Topic+sub topic tag system links the subtopic with the topic, Using separate tags would require searching specifying both tags to see 'common' notes. DTLow points out that you can search for all notes within the topic using tag:Topic* in the search box. DTLow also brings up an excellent point about separators. While I do not have experience with ":", I would ADVISE AVOIDING USING HYPHENS (-) within your tag names. Currently, the mac version of EN does not autocomplete hyphenated tags properly. This persistent bug will drive you crazy, so use a safer separator, e.g. PERIOD, UNDERSCORE, etc. jay
  4. The Benefit of Using Tags

    Hi Hebephrene, I think you used ":" to separate Topics from subtopics in your tags. I explain how I use this approach (though I use another "-" as my separator) earlier in the thread. Let us know how your quest for consistency progresses. Good luck.
  5. The Benefit of Using Tags

    I agree that tagging a note seems like additional work. This is especially true when using the iOS share function, where tags are chosen by scrolling through a long list. But I still use tags to organize my notes (see earlier note). I like that I can associate notes across several notebooks with particular projects, students, or topics. I can return to a project after a long hiatus and see an organized list of relevant notes just as if the project was still active. I also use the search box to browse ny notes by keyword, etc.. Very useful. Evernote has several ways to organize and access notes of different types. I consider that is one of its enduring strengths that makes it worth paying for. Enjoy.
  6. Pencil

    I have found that exporting the pdf temporarily to Notability greatly enhances the annotation experience because I can just "mark up" the document with my Apple Pencil as I would a paper version. Afterwards, I use the sharing feature in Notability to send the annotated pdf back to EN. This approach has the added benefit of being able to use EN (e.g. Related browsing or for taking text-based notes) in my split screen while reading the pdf. Jay
  7. Clipper couldn't start

    Happening to me as well. Chrome and Safari. Mac OS 10.12 Jay
  8. Evernote for Mac 6.10 Beta 1 Released

    Using EN 6.10 Beta 1, Macbook Air A note that contains a list of URL links no longer shows them in the editor. When I view the same note from its public URL, the list of URL links is still visible. Jay
  9. Though I do not wish this malady on anyone, it is nice to know that I'm not crazy. :-)
  10. I tried your suggestionsI am still having this problem using Web Clipper 6.9. It occurs in both Safari and Chrome, on both my home and work Macs. A colleague is having the same problem. Ideas?
  11. Thanks for the update. The update process (from within the app) worked fine for me except that the new of version of Evernote did not relaunch after the successful download. Google drive integration seems to work after rich links enabled. Some suggestions: * Some help text about 'rich links' would be helpful. * Shouldn't there be a menu item to attach a google file in addition to menubar icon to be consistent with normal file attachment process? Does integration with Google apps solve Evernote's lack of support for synchronous collaboration? Very creative approach. Congrats! jay
  12. Beginning yesterday, Webclipper stopped showing the text of an email message to be clipped. Message is in inbox. Anyone else having this problem? Any ideas on what I should try besides restarting Chrome? jay
  13. We're even. I did not realize that you could send email messages from the Apple email client to EN w/o having to remember the exact names for destination notebook and tag names. I'll have to explore. -jay
  14. Evernote for Mac v6.7 beta 1 Released

    If it try to add a tag to a note: As I type "St,' this is what appears, but as soon as a type the hyphen, the tag is incorrectly autocompleted with the first choice in the list, and the hyphen that I typed is appended to the completed tag: to which I reply: ARGH. There is a workaround. If i remember to type "." after the "St" instead of a hyphen, and then backspace and type the hyphen, the autosuggest feature works correctly! This can be a bit frustrating because users shouldn't have to memorize such workarounds to make the computer application happy. ;-) - jay
