  1. After some trial and error, I noticed that the space was only appears with links to Google Docs documents as well. Pretty sure the space is supposed to be an icon (see screenshot) but it seems that the icon doesn't display sometimes. Not sure why that happens (or if there's fix). I also can't reproduce getting a missing icon consistently.
  2. Darn, I was afraid of that. The main use / advantage of Sticky Notes for me is the fact that they appear my desktop (Windows) all the time. Although I occasionally create more, I primarily have two Sticky Notes that I work with - one is a "scratchpad" that I use it to jot down random stuff, notes when people call, etc and the other is my "to do" list. Having them open on my desktop all the time saves me from having to open Evernote whenever I want to work with them. I thought about just using two Evernote notes and keeping them open all the time but I like the fact that the Sticky Notes notes are small and that they load/open with Windows without me needing to do anything.
  3. Does anyone know of an alternative to Evernote Sticky Notes? It seems that the app isn't being updated any more and, although there is a workaround for recent issues users have had, I'd like to find an alternative in case issues develop that can't be fixed.
  4. It's certainly an operation that's supported by the OS; the only drawback is if other programs don't understand that convention. MS Word certainly does. MS Paint, not so much. Thank you for the response jefito. My understanding is that that people are having difficulty with copy and paste because EN isn't copying image data to the clipboard, it's copying a combination of HTML and ENML (Evernote Markup Language) to the clipboard. Is that correct? If so, my question is: Is there a scenario where the current functionality is actually an advantage? I did a quick search and it seems that this thread isn't the only one where people are wondering why they can't copy and paste images from EN to another application. Given that there have been a number of people with the same question, I'm just wondering what the rationale is for not modifying EN to copy image data to the clipboard like most other applications.

  5. Ugh, always wondered why I couldn't copy and paste from Evernote like any other normal program and finally decided to do a quick Google that turned up this thread. This behaviour seems very counter-intuitive. Is there a scenario where the current methodology makes sense? If it's by design, it would be interesting to hear the rationale.
  6. Does anyone else have any ideas? I checked the Windows client again and I must be blind because I don't see it anywhere.
  7. Thanks for responding Jeff. Where can I find the star symbol on the Windows client? I had a look again and I still don't see it. When I open a note on the iPad, there's a star symbol at the top of the note that I can click to add it to the Shortcuts section.
  8. When viewing/editing a note in Evernote on my iPad, there is a star at the top of the note to allow me to create a shortcut to the note. I don't see a similar feature on Windows though. Is there something that I'm missing or is the feature not available in the Windows client? I did a quick search and found the following announcement for the shortcut feature being released for iPhone/iPad but find it a bit surprising that it wouldn't be added to the Windows application as well.

  9. I recently tried to change the location of my Evernote local data to my Dropbox folder - so that Dropbox would act as a backup for my Evernote data. When I did that a window popped up saying: "The selected folder may be a Dropbox folder. Simultaneous access to Evernote files by both applications may lead to data corruption and/or loss. Evernote strongly advises against storing actively used Evernote files in a Dropbox folder. Are you sure you want to change the location of Evernote files to this folder?" I can tell that this is obviously not advised but can someone tell me if there is a real danger here or is this more of a precautionary note? Has anyone actually tried this and had good/bad results?
  10. Thank you for posting Jackolicious - it's great to see that Evernote is monitoring these forums. Hopefully your desire for these features gets the ear of the product management and development staff. Evernote is a brilliant product and this is the only thing I've encountered that seems to break with "it just works" simplicity of the application.
  11. Well we've finally crested a year for this thread staying active - congratulations everyone! I re-read all of the posts and I think Peter Martin did a great job at summarizing the requests. Also, as pointed out by BurgersNFries and jefito, about the most we're likely to get from EN staff (if they choose to post back at all) is a "thank you for the suggestion" post. Since I don't see that anywhere on this thread (maybe I missed it), I'll temp fate and say: "Hey Evernote staff, how about rewarding everyone that has kept this thread alive for over a year by giving us a "thank you for the suggestion" post."
  12. Interesting - good video. I can see the power of being able to open the image in a separate application and save it back Evernote if you're looking to do complicated edits / changes. I think what I and other people that have posted to this thread are really looking for is simply the ability to control the image size / quality at the time that the note is created - without having to perform a number of additional steps after the fact. Not having this feature means that I'm sending 5MB files every time I add a picture to one of my notes.
  13. @BurgersNFries: Well, this thread has been alive since January and people keep posting to it. Regardless of whether it's been covered before, having Evernote staff respond would be nice. Speaking for myself, all I'd love to hear is that it's on the radar and a ballpark on when it might get slotted in with all of the other features they're working on.
  14. Yes, that was my thought as well. I'm wondering if the Product Management team reviews the forum at all - I think I've seen them respond to other posts so I'm pretty sure they do. I'm a little puzzled why they haven't made any comment yet ... seems like there are a lot of people that really want this feature.
  15. I'm not an iPhone user (yet) but my Android doesn't have this option. The only thing I can do is lower the resolution on the camera. I don't understand why we can't simply have a setting to control this. The way I use Evernote, I can say that 99.99% of the time I would only want to upload web-quality images. The way it's being done now, the images take a long time to upload / download and they end up sucking up a lot of unneeded space in my Evernote account. The power of Evernote in my opinion is the way it makes it so easy to take a note and have it appear on all of my devices. Having to jump through hoops to reduce the size of the image really doesn't seem to fit with the simplicity that Evernote has obviously gone through a lot of pains to maintain in the product.
  16. Interesting, I didn't realize that there was anything similar to Evernote out there. I came over from OneNote because they could sync properly and didn't have a decent iPad / Android solution when I was using it. Does Springpad have the same capabilities as Evernote but with the image problem solved?
  17. +1 on this from me Evernote has quickly become a tool that I use on a daily basis and has replaced other note-taking tools like OneNote that I used to use. So far, the only hole that I've found in the functionality is Evernote's handling of images. Evernote's great because it allows for quick and easy note taking on multiple devices but the inability to a) automatically resize images for your screen and reduce the file size of images captured using your phone, etc. really detract from the usability for image-type notes.
  18. I disagree - this really should be core functionality. Evernote is great because it's quick and easy to create notes - whether they be image or text-based. Having to do steps either before or after to make the images smaller completely detracts from the simplicity of the application.
