  1. I use Evernote 10.8.6 on MacBook Pro MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 Everything works fine for me I consider myself as a heavy EVERNOTE user, but not as a sophisticated user that works with a lot of the features in Evernote.... ๐Ÿ˜
  2. @ArjenC Exact. It is a personal trade off if you want to use a lot of tags in a few notebooks (or even ONE notebook) or if you, like me, have 300 notebooks... There is not such a thing as ONE best practice for everyone. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ But everyone wants so SEARCH AND FIND the information, and that is the most important point of critic I have agains EN....โ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธ
  3. I have 300 notebooks which are organised in 30 stacked notebooks and which contains almost 9000 notes. Of course, if I would take a moment I think I can clean and delete some old Notebooks and notes..... But what matters to me (my Brain ๐Ÿ˜) is that I feel very comfortable by this wellthought (ahum) organisation of Notebooks for private use. For more than 90% of the cases I don't miss not using the tags anymore.... And I am really addicted to sending mails directly to the right notebook using my default titlestructure. Conclusion I like EN very much ๐Ÿ˜€ but I regret enormous that some very important searchfunctions are not available: ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ - the searchfunction does not search in office documents - the searchfunction should have the basic capability to look also in the middle or at the end of te words....
  4. Thanks for your reaction. I am not familiar with 'testexpander'....? How do you use that? EN finds searchtext in PDF, JPG, ... What is your experience with Office Documents like word, powerpoint, excel, ...? Albert
  5. Hello Is it possible to 'copy style' in Evernote? So, to copy/paste the font, fontsize, color, .... etc.... Thx, Albert
  6. As I said before, I know the power of tagging (I even gave workshops on that matter ๐Ÿ˜) But since I had too much tags and because I trusted too much on the sophisticated searchfunctionality of EN, I lost my discipline and focussed on notebooks. Usually I find every note I am searching for due to the (restricted) search of EN and due to the notebooks. And really, I can't imagine living without my EN database. I really digititallize everything I receive. My docscanner, my papershredder and my Evernote are my ever best tools which I use every single day!!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€ The only thing I regret is a searchfunctionality in EN that Works just like the most searchmethods that are used in officedocuments, in other databases like Lotus Notes or Microsoft Onenote. Sometimes I have some doubts if Evernote has enough Manpower or financial Capital to keep track of developping the product. I use EN 10.7.6 and take a local copy of EN every week... I hope I can keep working with EN for ever, but sometimes I don't know...
  7. OK Thank you very much! I didn't see the richt menu. Now, I changed my username and everything works fine!!!! ๐Ÿ‘
  8. OK, I will do that. Since I am an early EN user, and all my private life is supported by EN, I really think of EN as my very basic and excellent administration database. So I am afraid that I am 'overrating' the power of EN because I am a heavy user. And that's why I find the possibilities of editing the profile too Little......๐Ÿ˜
  9. Thank you for your reactions! Although I am still dissappointed of the searchfunctionality EN (I use Evernote Premium since 2012) I have a lot of experience in my private and in my professional carreer with note taking. My lessons Learned: (is my own best practice) I have a title syntax: date/ subject 20210215 this is an example I have a big structure of notebooks based on stacking of notebooks I stopped using tags I have a lot of tags and years ago it was too much so I don't use them anymore Because I trusted to find everything via SEARCH Because I have a lot of notebooks, so mostly I can find it there Maybe in the future I will start again using a restricted set of tags... ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I still regret there is a only limited searchfunctionality compared to other databases. Allthough I am no programming expert, I cannot imagine why it is so difficult to have the 'normal' searchfunctionality. Sincerely Albert
  10. So, is that the only answer? Is there maybe some planning to introduce this in the future? Of not at all? I mean, how should I find this note among 5000 notes if I do only remember 'SCHERM' to search for...???? This note would be for ever lost.....????
  11. There is so little to change with my profile. I would like to change my username, how can I do that....?
  12. Search gives only the right results if the searchstring is at the beginning of a word. But not if it is at the end of a word So searching by 'projectie' gives PROJECTIEscherm But searching by 'scherm' gives NOT projectieSCHERM
  13. My search does not give the right results.

    See picture



  14. I agree with that 100%. Let's hope that this is a bug of the new version and that we can expect an upgrade soon.
