  1. Hi, I have the same issue, but that option is not Checked. Any other ideas? Thanks.
  2. Thank you for all the good replies, this gives me something to think about. I had no direction with this and I've been using evernote for almost 3 years, which is why I have almost 2000 notes and no good method of keeping them organized. So tonight I set out again to come up with a good system. Thank you again!
  3. Thank you for the reply. I see where you are coming from, but I use Evernote mainly for personal use. It is replacing my physical file cabinet. All instruction manuals, important documents, personal projects, web articles. True, I do use it for work, I am a machinist, so notes that I take about certain machines, certain jobs that I run, etc. but they are all for personal use. Your examples do apply, I just need to adapt them to my scenarios. Right now, I have in my instruction manual notes, a tag for each device type, and another for each manufacturer, but now Im wondering if I really need that. Should I really be that specific, or just go with more generalized tags. I've spent almost the entire weekend going through all my notes, changing my mind, restructuring, changing my mind again. My head is spinning right now. But thank you again. Edit: Also, I dont want to create a bunch of tags that only 1 or 2 notes are going to use, seems wasteful to me.
  4. Hi, I use Evernote for everything. Work notes, household notes, hobbies, projects, interesting articles, -You name it. I believe in tagging notes, I see the benifit, but my tagging structure is a complete disaster. I have read several articles on organizing tags but I still dont have a clue as to the best way to use them. How detailed do I get? Do I do things like make a separate tag for each manufacturer mentioned in a note, for example? And if so, do I also use another general tag such as "Product?" I have instruction manuals of all kinds stored in an "InstructionManuals" notebook in this example. I have been working on organizing my notes all weekend with the future hope of getting rid of several notebooks and going more tag oriented. I have many more examples such as this but I dont know how deep to go with this. I know I am way over-thinking this, but dont know what to do. I know that the ultimate goal here is to be able to find what Im looking for, but it seems like consistency would be good too. Thank you for any help.
  5. Hi, I encountered this problem as well some months back, but I just checked and once again my S-Finder searches Evernote. Hope it's not just temporary or a fluke. Just thought I'd share.
  6. Ok, first I'm pretty sure the EN app on android automatically syncs notes upon loading the app. And ok, **YOU** aren't affiliated with EN, I get it. Sorry. I'm just a little frustrated right now, hope you can understand that.
  7. Burgers, I too beg to differ. I was in the process of updating my work notes as well, and EVERY TIME I UPDATE MY NOTES ON THE COMPUTER, I SYNC THEM. The computer is the device I usually update on. When I changed a note last night on my Android, not only did that note revert to an earlier version, but ALL, ALL notes reverted to an earlier version. THIS IS A BUG. Unless your objective is to ***** over everyone that uses Evernote, this is a bug.
