  1. When I first started using EN I scanned documents as .tif files and seemed to be able to search for text within them. At some point I became aware that EN (free at least) does not support tifs so started scanning as jpgs or pngs. Today I noticed when doing a text search that successful results were returned for many of these .tif files from 2008/2009. Was .tif support dropped at some stage? How else can this be explained? The .tif files I'm referring to do not appear as attachments.
  2. If I scan files numbered 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 (pages of consecutively scanned text), highlight them and drag them into a new note, they always display as 1, 5, 4, 3, 2, no matter what order they were displayed in the original folder. This means to ensure correct display order, multiple pages have to be dragged in one by one. This seems tedious and unnecessary.
  3. PS I found the open Evernote Forum tab from when I was trying to post originally: "Service Unavailable. The service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later."
  4. Thanks for deleting the extras. Each time I posted I got a message saying something like: "The operation cannot be completed at this time. Please try again later" so I assumed it hadn't been posted and I was going to try again today. I believe the features I have in mind could constitute an absolutely "killer app", that everyone could use for organising almost anything. Just this weekend there was confusion amongst our parent group about who had agreed to take which kids to and from a party at what times - had we been sharing and all contributing to such a diagram it would have been clear to all. I appreciate the challenge in keeping the UI clean and uncluttered. I've played with online whiteboards and they're currently too complicated and unintuitive for what I have in mind. While this could be a new stand-alone app or program. it made more sense to me for it to be a rich extension of something that's already established in the cloud-based organisational area and used by millions. Two other useful features: An optional timeline down the side of the diagram (would have been useful in the parent/party example) In addition to simple shapes being recognised as certain graphics, gestures to be assigned per note or notebook, eg tapping with four fingers could quickly add another House graphic.
  5. I'd love to see the ability to use Evernote like a smart whiteboard (on a touchscreen). Draw a circle or an oval and as soon as the shape is recognised the hand-drawn one is replaced by a smooth graphic one the same size. Hand write some text in it and that text pops up inside the oval or circle in Calibri (or whatever's been set as default). Draw an arrow between one circle and another and a graphical arrow appears in its place in the pre-set arrow colour. Basically I'd like a way to create clear infographics on the fly from hand-drawn input. Ideally there would be a generous collection of graphical symbols, a simple representation of a house for example, and a way to "teach" Evernote, "When I draw this, replace it with that, about the same size." So many ideas and processes can be better explained or toyed with as sketches, but the untidiness of sketches can make them unclear or unappealing. Of course this would work best on a large touchscreen, but until these are ubiquitous (and I imagine a world where every room has one on a wall, perhaps displaying artwork when not in use), scrolling functionality would be necessary when confined to smaller screens. The drawings and flow diagrams should have the ability to contain rich content if necessary: icons would indicate that double or long tapping will open video, audio, a spreadsheet or regular document as a pop-up within the note. Versions could be saved every x minutes so that if a great idea is erased in the process of developing a graphical note, it can be found again and restored.
  6. The Android implementation of Advanced Search seems a little broken. Say I want to find a note created 15 July this year. Well I've learned through trial & error that "created after" actually means "created on or after" so I can put in this date, but I have to scroll all the way to the bottom to get the notes I want. So I figured "created before" must mean "created on or before" so I'll put this in and the notes I want will be at the top. But for some reason that search returns notes created before that date but none created ON that date. So weirdly "created after" means "on or after" but "created before" means literally "before". To add further confusion I searched for "created before 16 July 2014" and the results included notes created on 16 July as well as the ones I wanted from 15th. So July 15th is just haunted.
  7. Thanks, yes I'd forgotten it was available in Android. Odd there should be functionality here that's missing from the desktop.
  8. Just a feature request for a real Advanced Search button that takes you to a dialogue full of fields. I just find it a huge pain every time I want to find a note, say from a particular date, that I have to look up the correct search operators/date syntax and every time I try and guess it I get it wrong and just waste more time. That's great for power users but seems unusually user-unfriendly and when I only have to do very specific searches occasionally I just want to be able to fill in the exact criteria from a selection of fields and hit the Search button. Date range could have a pop-up calendar so there's no confusion about day/month order. Would be v useful for me in Android too, even in cut-down form.
