  1. OP you mention that you are viewing PDFs in a browser. If you install the Evernote WebClipper addon to your browser - http://evernote.com/webclipper/ - you can clip all kinds of content, full or partial webpages, PDFs etc directly into the Evernote notebook of your choice. This works for me in Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox under Windows. Safari is also supported so I guess you need to try it and see if it supports PDF saving under iOs ...
  2. @gazumped I see your intention, but the reason it doesn't work in my scenario is that my wife doesn't have an Evernote client running continually and so this would necessitate her actively running Evernote to check. Whilst, for you or I, that might not be a significant overhead I don't want her to have to change her workflow. Hence I want to be able to notify her via email, which she does have active (almost) continually, just to call her attention to things. Personally I don't want the overhead of running an additional notebook for her either. It would seem reasonable, to me, that I should be able to send a link to a note to someone which still requires an Evernote login to ensure the note is being shared with an authorised user. As I've said all the notes I'd like to share links with my wife to are in notebooks that she already has access to ...
  3. Thanks for your response JB. #2) Works perfectly in that it finds all the currently shared notes ... I still had to "Share > Stop Sharing" each one individually though Certainly I now have peace of mind that there are no longer any live public links into our EN database. #1) I'm not so happy that this is the "right" way of doing things ... At the very least it's clunky in that I have to share, wait a bit (however long that might be) in the hope that my wife reads it, and then unshare. It feels like I ought to be able to share something like an Evernote notelink - eg "evernote:///view/18853374/etc" ... but my understanding is those only work to link between notes within an instance of Evernote [if my terminology is wobbly there I apologise, but I hope you/everyone understands my meaning.] Thanks again JB. I'll wait and see if anyone else can add to the discussion on #1. Stuart
  4. general scenario I manage and maintain a family Evernote database which my wife and I use to manage our home. I do all the scanning, tagging, maintenance etc. I have a premium account, my wife a free one. All the relevant notebooks were created by me and shared with my wife. specifics From time to time I email my wife with items she needs to act on. Eg "Here's a letter from the bank. Please call them." I have been using "Share > Copy Note URL to lipboard" within Evernote and then using the URL obtained to make the word "letter" within my email a link to the note containing the scan of the letter. This works, but I've just realised that I'm making a public link each time I do this. I realise that my wife would have to actively share the link or her email account be compromised to allow another party access, but nonetheless the fact that the link is public and is not protected from parties that I have not actively shared the entire notebook with, as I had assumed, is a concern. (Like any family we deal with financial, medical and personal matters all of which can be sensitive and utterly inappropriate for public sharing at times.) primary question What method should I be using to share in the way I intended? ie - such that the recipient of my link can only access it where I have already shared the entire notebook with that person. My wife receives her emails in various locations and so uses Evernote on the web to access the documents I'm highlighting to her. secondary question How do I now efficiently ensure that I "Stop Sharing" any and all notes I've shared in this way? Having realised my error I know that I can use "Share > Stop Sharing" on individual notes to de-activate the public link. The problem is I don't remember which notes I have shared in this way and I can't just select all my notes and use "Share > Stop Sharing" since the option isn't available when multiple notes are selected. Many thanks for reading this far! Any and all help greatly appreciated Stuart / somebizzare
  5. Thanks very much Scott. The ESC escapes to the top of the notelist so with a little tweak on the sort order of my notes I've achieved what I wanted. I've joined your public notebook too Stuart
  6. Hi people I'm not sure if I just need help or if this is in fact a feature request - perhaps I'm missing something. I'm currently doing some work where I need to cycle through the following sequence repeatedly: update note title select next note in note list I've been looking at https://support.ever...ote-for-Windows and so for step 1. above I'm using F2 to select the note title. However I can't see a shortcut that'll let me set focus to the note list so that I can then use the cursor keys to select the next note. As a result I'm currently having to let go of the keyboard and use the mouse to select the next note each time which is frustrating and inefficient. I'd really like to keep my hands on the keyboard throughout. Can anyone tell me what I've missed? Suggest a workaround? Or is this a legitimate feature request? Thanks in advance Stuart / SomeBizzare
  7. I hadn't even realised that this feature "worked"; I've always a$sumed that my computer had crashed and re-booted. In its current form the feature would seem to be almost unusable and as such should really be removed from the public release. Rotating an image is easy, simple and, most importantly, quick via so many other methods that if it's going to be included in Evernote it needs to be equally efficient not to mention leaving the file format and any embedded metadata unchanged.
  8. Thanks Jeff. That would seem to ensure predictable behaviour. Thanks for thinking it through for me!
  9. I totally get what you're saying there. I realise that if the limit is an ongoing issue then of course the responsible thing to do is sign up for premium and remove it. And as is the case with many "lite" products I can accept that the transition almost needs to be a little bumpy to encourage me to take the plunge. That's actually what I had done when I noticed the apparent "automatic queuing" of import folders ... I wonder if anyone else can comment on whether this is in fact a reliable feature. If so I don't need a separate local queue folder which I have to manually transfer into an import folder as you describe. it'd be nice to know
  10. I was reading http://discussion.ev...r-upload-limit/ as I'm approaching my free user monthly upload limit. I'm a pretty new free user and so I'm still finding my Evernote feet and honing my workflow. So here's my question: I think I've found a really useful feature of import folders. Right now I just have the one set up which imports everything I drop into it to my default "_inbox" notebook. I've ticked the delete when imported checkbox. I'm very close to my limit - just 400k or 500k left - and I've noticed that as I continue to drop files into my import folder Evernote (EN) imports those that are small enough to get under the remaining upload limit, and deletes them of course, but is leaving those that are too large in the folder. I'm anticipating that when my new upload period starts in a few days EN will then import those larger items too. Am I right to anticipate that? Am I right in believing that EN will effectively manage my import queue for me and hence I can scan documents and drop files without worrying about the upload limit knowing that EN will catchup when it has capacity? * * It appears that the limitation to this "automatic queuing" feature is that items arriving via other methods than the import folder - ie via email or imported directly into EN via the interface etc - may still cause problems with exceeding limits, but otherwise is my understanding sound? By the way is there a better thread than the one linked to above regarding exactly what does happen if you exceed your limit? Whilst I'm still experimenting and finding my way I'm taking great care that nothing gets lost on its way into EN, but in the future when I'm managing my wife's business as well as my home paperlessly via EN I need to be confident that items are not being quietly "lost" without my knowing. First post. Be gentle! Stuart aka SomeBizzare
