  1. Hello Evernote developers, Can you add multi-level aka nested lists? If there's one formatting feature that must be added ASAP, it's this one. Hope to hear from Evernote as to whether this feature is going to be added. Best regards, Kitezh47
  2. We, Humans, have been using cabinets, notebooks, folders, files and notes to store data for long. Why? Because this used to be the only technology we knew for it. However, It's not the natural way our mind deals with information. Our brain is a network rather than a cabinet. We need to quickly associate ideas, thoughts and all kind of information to be productive and creative! EN would become a killer if it allows more flexibility for outlining information. What about becoming more wiki-style, like some past programs (SeoNote, Treepad) or present services such as Confluence and Notion.so? By doing so, Evernote would allow teams to collaborate and share common places (not notes!) which could be actually workplaces or even hyperlinked Knowledge Bases (not a stack of notebooks!). I think this is the future of information management. I really want Evernote to embrace it.
  3. Tell me what the purpose of EverNote is again? Isn't it to get organized? A couple of years ago when I started using EverNote I assumed that some of the limitations were due to a learning curve on my part, but now I'm seeing them as intrinsic to EverNote. I've complained previously. These problems include: Only one level of nesting is possible (Notebook Stack and Notebook). You have more flexibility by just setting up a file structure in the cloud and storing files there directly, bypassing EverNote completely. This is a crazy limitation for software that I'm paying for monthly. This is something that hasn't improved in the last 3 years. When you select a notebook stack you see the full set of notes in all notebooks within that stack. The first impression is that it's showing notes at the level of the stack, not all notes in all notebooks within the stack. If you're trying to get organized you want to go through the files and place them in different notebooks. However if you drag or move a note to a notebook, the screen refreshes and the note appears again. Unless you open the note there is no way to see what notebook the note is in. This makes it impossible to clean up and refine where notes are filed. Here again, it's easier with a file structure, making me wonder again what the purpose of EverNote is if you're left with just a pile of random notes that can't be conveniently filed where they belong. Oddly enough you can move a note to a notebook, but there's no way to tell what notebook a note is in unless you open it. In other words, when you move a note you don't know if you're just "moving" it to the same notebook it's already in.
  4. As you can see in the pic, I have a notebook that is nested called GTD (noted by the arrow). I cannot recreate this structure! Was it that Evernote used to support nested folders so mine is a holdover from the old days, and now they only have Stacks? I don't like stacks b/c they don't show up at the top like notebooks, they only show up under the tags section. Is there a way to make more of what I have here?
  5. I've looked over the 33 page long thread regarding more deeply nested notebooks and some other threads. The only posts from verified Evernote employees that I saw only offered alternatives to notebook nesting (which is usually the hierarchical tagging system), which seem to have been clearly identified as useful, but not identified as negating the use of a more "folder" or "directory" like hierarchy, which also clearly seems to be desired by many many users. Personally, I'm at the point where I will be looking for an alternative, or making my own.. probably using Github, and making a small OSX wrapper app that is just a text editor along side the repository so I can make many generations of happy little folders. I'm sad to say that, because Evernote is superb in every way except this one, but this is the one I need most. My question is to Evernote, what are your reasons for not implementing this feature?
  6. I make extensive use of tables, but since the table functionality was updated I am having problems. - with a table created before the update, sometimes trying to add a new row in the middle of the table will only add the row at the end - it appears to be no longer possible to nest a table within a table, which I used to be able to do
  7. Need the ability to NEST notes and notebooks; started abandoning Everynote as a result. Been using Evernote for a few years. Now using it heavily and tags aren't cutting it and wastes more time trying to organize and manage tags and stacks. Please do not respond explaining the benefits of tags, keywords, search, stacks. Keep the benefits of tags, keywords, search, stacks ~ just not at the expense of the nested hierarchy. No links to related articles, tutorials, demos, blogs on how to use tags and how to organize. ---- Keep the tags, but please allow nesting. Notebook and stacks, tags...aren't getting the job done. One can say it is mindset, need to change the mindset and adjust to a new way of organization. Spent obscene amount of time over the last 2 years trying to use and adjust to tags; reading blogs, best practices, research etc..even looking for 3rd party add ons, iOS apps etc. The more content added, the more content that gets lost... the larger volume of data the harder it is to find... must rely on memory for search terms, tags etc. Nesting allows an easy way to browse and find content. Also, you can train a group of people to work within hierarchy, but not tags.
  8. I am converting from using a Notebook organizational system to using tags due to the ability to nest tags to several levels. When I am in the "Tag" view, looking at all of my tags and beginning to nest "child" tags underneath "parent" tags (by dragging), I am finding that sometimes EN won't allow the nesting. I have tried to figure out when it will and when it won't allow this (e.g. no nesting under tag with zero occurrences OR no nesting two more levels without an occurrence OR ...), but I am not finding a rhyme or reason for the issue. It just will not allow me to nest some tags while other tags nest without a problem. Please help me. What are the rules for when you can and cannot nest one tag under another? Where can I find these rules? Using Evernote 6.0.3 on MacBook Pro. Thanks!
  9. I have been using nested tags for some time now to organize my notes. For example I have a 'root' tag called "people" under which I have nested "the wife", "the kid", "the boss" And I have a root tag called 'employers' under which I have tags for my current and former employers. This enables me to link notes across notebooks. In Evernote 6 for Mac non-MAS (I have tested this with first 6.0.2 and now 6.0.5) I can no longer nest new tags. And I cannot unnest my tags. Hope EN will fix this in a future release (soon).
  10. How can i make nested tags appear in their parent folder? e.g. Susie and John are professors at the Tokyo campus, so their names are nested under Tokyo faculty. when i tag Susie's travel itinerary and John's travel itinerary with their respective names and the "travel" tag, id like to be able to go into the Tokyo faculty folder and search by tag "travel" in order to see the itineraries of all Tokyo professors Is this impossible without double-tagging? Please advise - I'm very new to Evernote!
  11. Is there an unclunky way to add a whole lot of tags; especially tags that need to have a nested relationship? I searched and tried many things tonight to no avail. Below is what I wrote to a client as the best route I could figure out.
  12. So I came to Evernote from MS OneNote. I had grand visions in my mind of using all these features where OneNote was weak. Web clipping, e-mailing to my notebook etc. Alas, when I go to set up my system and transfer my OneNote binders into ever note I have come to find that something as standard as nesting folders is not an option with Evernote. Now I'm sure it's not as simple as it sounds on the development side so I grant you that. But you are in the business of software development. If almost every other software application out there can do nesting folders as a standard feature surely you can also with a little effort. Yes I know there are workarounds to this problem, but why do I have to pull my hair out trying to figure out a way to make nested folders with tags etc. when they should be something standard like the rest of the programs in the world. Judging from all the posts on the forum this is obviously something that the market is used to and would like to have. Please let me know when Evernote will have nesting abilities because until then I will just have to stick with OneNote. And maybe by then OneNote will have caught up with some of the great features that Evernote currently has. This is actually very sad I really want to use Evernote, but without the nesting it really is not worth my time and effort setting up this workaround which really isn't all that great anyway. Thank you for your efforts and I hope I am able to use you in the future.
