  1. You know, I often agree with your valuable input in the forums, but in this case, I can't. There is a simple yet important reason to set the create date to the right day: sorting. You can't sort by tag. A tag with the date is therefore completely and utterly useless for browsing the archives. Using Evernote as a document archive, as many people do, I want the create date to be the create date of the document, not the often completely arbitrary date I put the document into Evernote.
  2. I just noticed that changing the creation date in the new version is only possible by clicking through the months / years. Looking at a note that should have a date in September 1996, this is a terrible amount of clicks. Please make it possible to enter the date via the keyboard again!
  3. Could work, as most of my notebooks are archives of some sort, and I only use a few on a daily basis. Still, it's significantly more work than it used to be.
  4. Well, basic search is available with windows explorer. With my notes being titled and tagged thoughtfully, yes, I can still use that data. By far not as comfortable as in EN, but that is the reason why I use EN in the first place.
  5. I disagree. It really gives me peace of mind to have a backup that is human-readable without the need for extra software. Especially since the direction EN is moving to seems to be web only. The html export from legacy works well for me. Not sure how to achive this in the new version.
  6. I'm on Android, EN Version 10.16 When I try to open a pdf or another file that has been added using the web clipper in gmail, I can't get the pdf to open - instead, I am taken to editing the note. Tried long-pressing, no success either. Help?
  7. Thank you! I'm just getting used to the new version (on my laptop. Legacy stays on the main PC for now.)
  8. Oh wow, I didn't even notice the blue button until now. 😳 Much better now, thanks!
  9. So, I finally tested tasks and I don't find the implementation logical. Especially two things: To add a task, you have to go to tasks, create a task and assign it to a note (unless you want it in the default tasks note). But I can't create a task directly from a note, as far as I can see. On the other hand, I can create a reminder directly from a note, but the reminder isn't a task and won't be shown on the task list. I don't see how it makes sense to keep these 2 things separate. Any thoughts?
  10. Another vote to make the home screen optional. I can see how it would improve some workflows, but it hinders mine. Just by one click, but still annoying.
  11. I think this is a question about nested folders. If so, the hierarchy in EN is this: ALL NOTES Notebook stack (contains notebooks, but no single notes) Notebook (contains notes) There is no way to nest Notebooks further. It has been a rquest for a long time, but I don't think it will ever be realised.
  12. Nimbus is impressive, but since you're asking, here are the reasons I did not switch to Nimbus after seriously testing it for amonth: Export: The html export gives you a zip file for every note. So, if you are like me and want a human readable backup, there is an extra step involved. An extra step for every single note. Connectivity: Nimbus is on ifttt, but only as receiving app - there is no way to get data out that way. There may be technical reasons for this, not sure, but it feels like a lock-in. Search is lacking. No way to use AND or NOT operators for tag searches. Search always defaults to all notes, no way to quickly search the notebook (folder) you're in. No import folders Unclear (for me) why you have two ways to add documents - inline or attachment. If you send email to nimbus, files get added as attachment, which means no preview. Webclipper adds them inline, but handling of inline files is incosistent, too - sometimes you need one click to open / download, sometimes it takes two. Sometimes images can be set as preview, sometimes they cannot. Then, there are some GUI issues that make it clumsy (for me): No standard keyboard shortcuts like "del" to delete a note If you delete or move a note, the focus goes back to the first note in the notebook, which makes organizing a neverending scroll endeavour No way to edit the create date other than clicking through the months. (Not sure if anyone except me ever uses that )
  13. I know this is an old thread, and maybe it has changed in the meantime, but to my knowledge, the created date is in fact preserved. I tested it on a small notebook with export and re-import, and the date was correct. Not sure if this is/was different on different platforms, I am on windows legacy.
  14. I had a boyfriend who did this. Had.
  15. As for importing notes, be careful. Notion does auto detect tables and takes them over to their own format - this butchers some notes like emails sent in html format and similar stuff. I really like notion, have been using it for some time now. But for my purposes, it is not an EN replacement. No way to store all data locally, no API (yet) and therefore no way to automate things, no indexing of document / image content.
