  1. I haven't had time to work out all the specifics, but here are more observations. I restarted the computer (just in case) and opened Evernote. 1) I don't think this was working correctly since the update - but I could be wrong. But now, I can select a notebook from the left side tree, then control click multiple tags, as well as type additional words in the search box and it seemingly works fine now. 2) If I select a notebook from the dropdown menu on the toolbar, then try to select a tag from the tree, it clears the notebook selection to All Notes and searches only the tag. Likewise if I select a tag from the toolbar dropdown menu. Trying to control click an additional tag from the tree clears the first tag selected. Likewise, regardless of what notebook or tag I select from the toolbar dropdown menus, as soon as I type a single letter in the search box, it immediately clears the selected notebook or tag and returns me to All Notes, searching only for whatever is typed in the search box and ignoring my tag or notebook selection. 3) I did not yet narrow down the specifics that cause it to happen, but like Jeff, I have a long list of notebooks and tags. Some combination of things I do now causes the scroll bar to start "going a little crazy, cycling back and forth between two sizes". Actually, a lot crazy! It rapidly jumps up and down continuously and will no longer allow me to select anything. I can grab the toggle and scroll to anywhere I like, but the instant I release the mouse button to actually select a tag or notebook, it instantly starts jumping up and down again, as do , thereby preventing me from selecting anything. Only by killing the application entirely with the task manager and restarting can I get this behavior to stop. Rick
  2. Since the update for Evernote Windows this past Friday, the search feature is broken on my computer. I cannot select more than one tag. Control clicking a second simply clears the first one. Then, typing anything into the search box immediately clears the tag. Anyone else having this problem. It was an automatic update, but is there any way to revert back to the previous version until this is fixed?
  3. OK. Thanks! At least I now have a better understanding of how it works. I suppose at a minimum, if I knew for a fact I was going to be offline for a week, say on a hiking trip somewhere remote without cell coverage, and I had trail notes I needed to rely on in the phone, I could subscribe to the premium service for a month and temporarily move all necessary notes to an offline notebook as you suggested. If it ever becomes an issue on shorter outings close to home I may have to consider going premium on a permanent basis. Rick
  4. Just want to be clear if I understand this correctly. Using the free account, which I currently am, I can be online with my Android and open a note. If later in the day I am offline, I can still open that note which downloaded to cache. But you are saying that even if I don't ever go into the Evernote app settings and clear the note cache, the note will probably get cleared anyway sooner or later, with no way to predict when? To the best of my knowledge, I have not had that happen yet - but you are saying it will? And in that case, there is really not much advantage to being able to clear individual notes. Or is there? If I could clear certain preselected notes that would probably keep my cache from filling up - especially if I knew what the cache limit was and could keep tabs on it? If that is a valid understanding, then please consider this a feature request - that is being able to cleasr individual notes and keep track of cache usage. Rick Rick
  5. Is there any way on the Android app to remove an individual note from the cache, as opposed to removing ALL notes from the cache. There are many times when I open a large note in the mobile app that has attached maps, pics, etc. that I may only need for a week while on a trip. I want to keep the note on my desktop and on the server so I don't want to delete it - but I don't want it permanently taking up several MB on the phone either. Clearing the entire cache is NOT an attractive alternative as I don't want to lose offline access to already downloaded notes that I do want on the phone permanently. If this is not possible currently, how does one make a feature request? Rick
  6. Thanks! I am at work messing around with the web-interface now but was going to try the Ctrl_click way on the desktop app once I got home this evening. Rick
  7. One more question. Since this thread rather quickly veered off the original subject matter, is there any way for me or perhaps a moderator to add another tag to it? Perhaps "folders vs tags"? Other people might also find this thread helpful for that discussion. Rick
  8. Excellent! That gives me the exact same fuctionality I was looking for, at least on the desktop and web apps. I had been trying to click on the tags in the left sidebar but that only allowed me to search that one tag and not narrow to notes with that tag and also another by clicking another tag. I had tried typing more tags in the search bar as well but had not yet learned that I needed to add the word Tag: in front of it. Works perfectly now, though having to actually type in the tags isn't quite as quick and simple as clicking on them in succession to narrow results down. Nevertheless, it will work just fine for me. Is there an easy way to do this on the Android app as well. It would be nice if you didn't have to type existing tag names in the seach bar there. Rick
  9. Wow! Lots of food for thought. These are all valid considerations for me to mull over. I had perhaps 100 notes in Catch so far with only two streams and had not yet had a problem finding anything but it just seemed too limiting knowing that I could only create one more stream for free. But one concern I have with a too tag heavy approach is not wanting to have to spend 5 minutes on every note looking through a huge list of tags trying to decide how many are truly applicable and important to a single notebook approach. Perhaps I am overthinking it tough or getting the wrong idea about this approach? I'm not praising Catch or criticizing Evernote but simply trying to complete my transition - but there was one feature in Catch I really liked that I have not yet figured out how to do in Evernote - or if I even can. That was an easy way to narrow results with multiple tags. For an exaggerated but realistic example, let's say I had 500 notes in a "Hiking" notebook. 250 have a "trails" tag and 25 of those have a "New Hampshire" tag. Other trail notes may have tags of "Virginia", "Tennessee", etc. for trails in those states. 20 of the 25 trail notes tagged "New Hampshire" are tagged "peaks" and 10 of those 25 are tagged "waterfalls" Many of the VA and TN trails notes have varying mixtures of these two tags as well. Now, let's say there are several other notes in this notebook also tagged "New Hampshire" but not "trails". In Catch, while on either All Notes or the Hiking stream, if I pulled up the tag interface and selected trails, it would show all 250 notes tagged "trails" but no other notes. The interface would also show that these notes included 25 New Hampshire tags, X number of Virginia and Tennessee tags, as well as X number of waterfall and peaks tags. The notes with New Hampshire tags but NOT with trails tags have already been excluded. If I then select New Hampshire in the list of tags it will then display only the 25 notes tagged with both "trails" and "New Hampshire". It will also show that there are now 20 notes tagged "peaks" and 10 tagged "waterfalls". Continuing, I select "waterfalls" and am left with only the 10 notes tagged "trails", "New Hampshire" and "waterfalls". I will no longer see notes tagged "waterfall" AND "Virginia" for example. Nor will I see other "New Hampshire" tags that got culled when I originally selected trails. Is there anything similar and equally easy in Evernote? If not, that would seem to justify a larger number of notebooks to my way of thinking. Rick
  10. OK. Thanks! I'll keep your advice in mind as I continue to decide how I really want my Evernote set up in the long term. I currently have 28 notebooks but am still trying to decide if that number should be more, less, or is about right for the number of subjects. It's kind of a balancing act between the effective use of stacks, notebooks, and tags.
  11. Just recently started using Evernote again after having installed it several years ago and not really getting into it. But things have changed in the way I manage my files and I find I am loving Evernote now after having used Catch for a few months after getting an Android. Anyway, I am unclear about one thing regarding notebooks. I know there is a limit of 250 synced notebooks including stacks. That's where I'm not sure if a stack with 10 notebooks inside it counts as 1, 10, or 11 notebooks of your total Can anyone clear this up. BTW, this limit is what finally swayed me to switch over from Catch. I actually did like that app, even though it didn't have a desktop application - only phone and web. But the free account only allows 3 streams (their equivalent of notebooks). Now I'm finding Evernote vastly superior in almost every way as i use it more and more. Thanks for any help, Rick
