    Photography How to organize your inspiration?

    For looking at a few well-chosen images that inspire me, I find Pinterest helpful. I use it for searching and saving historic costume and needlework images. It's also good for linking back to other websites where the image was originally found. Evernote where I stash my text-based info, for family history research or keeping logs. It's great for genealogy or for project planning with others. Both Pinterest and Evernote have widgets for saving those things you find while online.

    Evernote update fails for ages

    I'm having the Evernote update problem on my MacBook Pro Retina with Evernote 6.0.13. When I try to update Evernote, I get "Update Error! An error occurred while downloading the update. Please try again later." I've tried restarting, emptying the trash, running utilities. Same message. I have no idea where my Evernote database is. I'm an Evernote Pro Customer, running it on my iPhone 6 and iPad as well. Should I delete the desktop client and reinstall? Am I safely backed up in the cloud? I have no idea where my database is to back it up! Please advise.
  3. Thanks for the posts! I am taking an excellent course from Family Tree University called Evernote Bootcamp. It's given me some great tips about using Evernote more productively. Basically, Evernote is a repository for all those various research notes you run across. You still need a true genealogy program to create family trees, etc. I found this forum because I'm having difficulty cleaning up the random tags I have assigned. Should there be a separate group for genealogy users? It would be helpful to me, certainly. I am not seeing one so far.

    mac Quickly delete all unused tags?

    I too am having trouble with deleting those 0 count tags. The Pinterest slide above has no effect on my MacBook Pro Retina (running OS 10.10.3, Evernote 6.0.3). Just found some great tips for cleaning up my Evernote and now can't tidy up my tags, very sad.

    craft Crocheting help???

    Wow -- no one has replied? Ravelry is a great community with lots of instructions and patterns, some free, some small fee to designer. Knitting and crochet. Lion Brand Yarns has a helpful website, blog, and weekly emails, featuring their products and many free patterns. Craftsy is a relatively new site offering instruction in various crafts. Hope this helps for starters.
