  1. Evernote’s value to me as a tool is in how it supports my writing process. I use Mac OS X. As a new premium user, I am finding that I cannot add my written thoughts to a web page “selection” concurrently with saving the selection to Evernote. I find Evernote’s value lies not just in web capture, but in coupling that web capture with what I’m thinking. I want to simultaneously save the discovered web information AND my summary reflections about its significance to me. I want Evernote to keep up with the speed of my thinking. These two elements – discovery and the discovery’s meaning or significance – are really two aspects of a single thought process of determining a. the usefulness of information and b. intuiting where it fits in a scaffold, whose shape and scope I adduce gradually. Thus, the usefulness of the information I discover, which I use Evernote to retain, is directly proportional to being also immediately able to capture instantly the ideas that spontaneously, rapidly emerge. Being unable to annotate an html capture introduces a lag. I am forced by Evernote's design to add thoughts later (ie., after I sync the capture with Evernote's server, or the capture on the server with my local copy). With even such a slight lag, my thought process is interrupted, associations are lost, or they become more difficult to reconstruct, their collation with related ideas becomes more laborious. I don’t want to Command-Tab to Evernote to further emend/amend the information just captured and only after a tab refresh. I’d appreciate hearing others’ opinions and objectives. I only know my own objectives, habits. It is unclear to me what the full range of uses is for Evernote. Please guide me if I have overlooked some feature or capability. Does anyone do anything with scripting that might address this? I appreciate any and all response, thanks.
  2. OneNote Binder Tailored for Academic Researchers and Writers I just ran across this blog about using OneNote for research, and thought I'd share it here since so many users post questions here about Evernote vs OneNote. I can say that after having read the blog and watched the video that it is quite impressive. I learned that OneNote has more features than I previously knew. From the blog: Here's a few OneNote features that I found very interesting: Notebook sharing and real-time collaboration [NOT available in EN] with othersDeep searching across notebooks, in one notebook, or in one section (including Boolean searching [NOT available in EN] and use of quotation marks to search for exact wording)Searching for words in audio and video notes/content [NOT available in EN]Nesting of notebook sections groups [NOT available in EN]Page templates [NOT available in EN]Automatic versioning of OneNote pages [NOT available in EN]Syncs across all devices [just like EN]Nesting of Notebook Sections, subpages under pages, with the ability to collapse and expand subpages [NOT available in EN]Password protecting of tabs and sections [NOT available in EN]AFAIK, the only areas where Evernote is clearly superior to OneNote are: Easy sync across more devicesMuch better Web Page capture with EN Clipper and EN Clearly [i believe OneNote can capture web pages ONLY as a picture, NOT as HTML text like EN]There are probably other areas where EN is better, and I'm sure my friends here will be quick to point these out.
  3. There are two features that would turn Evernote into a novel-writing app far superior to anything else out there and they are really simple features: 1. Individual notebook sorting - the ability to have one notebook sorted by date, one alphabetically a-z, one alphabetically z-a, and every other permutation. 2. Manual sorting - the ability to drag notes around to change their order, and have their new order remembered. With these two features, Evernote could go a long way towards replacing Scrivener and the other novel-writing apps out there. Writers could drag their scenes in Evernote around until they're in order, format their words and include images (something no other novel-writing app that works between tablets and computers can do), and move seamlessly between their iPad, their iPhone and their computer without having to worry about Dropbox or any of the other poor solutions currently offered to novel writers. It would be absolutely incredible. You could work on your novel on the bus on your iPhone, then come home, refresh Evernote on your computer, and start writing from where you left off. Add daily word count target monitoring in the notebook, visible word count on each note, the ability to select and edit multiple notes at once (so scenes in separate notes could be viewed and edited at once and their merged word count viewed), and the ability to export a notebook in a format that can be shown to publishers and no other publishing software would stand a chance.
  4. I've started using Penultimate in an effort to go paperless with my writing and blogging. What I do is have a Penultimate/Evernote window open on one side of the screen and a Word document or blog post on the other side so I can easily copy down what I've written. I have a giant notebook filled with writing that I would like to easily copy over. What's the best way, if there is one, I can scan the notebook and have it appear in Evernote in one note so I can easily copy what I've written into a computer file?
  5. Is there a thesaurus feature for Evernote? I just started using it and I absolutely love it so far, but I haven't been able to find an app, add-on, or extension that will allow me to integrate a thesaurus tool. It seems to have everything else, even a word count feature, so I'm hoping that I'm just missing it. Any insight would be greatly appreciated! ~ Shannon
  6. Hi, Here is a short blog post with some tips how to use Evernote for writing (actually how few of our customers use it). http://blog.cloudhq....ive-dropbox-and TL;DR version: Evernote for prewriting (ideas, investigation, photos, interviews, collecting links, drafts, ...) Google Docs for the main bulk of the writing and editing process (sentence fluency, using precise language, etc.) - and collaborations Dropbox for backup and distribution/sharing and final publishing touches cloudHQ to sync all your data between all these services Please comment. Thanks! Senad
  7. Hi, I am contemplating between purchasing a Kindle or Sony e-Reader. The Sony has the advantage of Evernote. For me, a writer, I need the capability to write on the go, when I have only my e-Reader with me. Will the Evernote allow typing text up to 5000 words at a time (short stories)? Will this feature be enables with the version installed on the Sony PRS-T2 ? Is Evernote compatible with any other e-Reader (e.g Kindle Paperwhite or Nook)? Thank you, Etand
  8. I love my Evernote and have been using it to keep "life" which these days includes work, own business and grad school organized. Not to mention all the fun stuff too. I wish, wish wish.....Evernote could include a function(s) that reference manager software like Mendeley or EndNote have for writing papers that also embeds information into WORD doc as needed. Right now, I'm like a crazy person, with most of my resources in Evernote -- now migrating over to Mendeley as needed. Why? Well, I started off using Evernote for not only note taking all through grad school, but for organizing reading material, research files, etc. so everything is in there!! But now when I writing, I need those items in a reference manager tool -- so citing is easier (can I also mention, APA format...grrrr!!) Thoughts on my wish? Possible?? Soon?? Yes??
  9. I am looking for something quite simple: how many words did I wrote in Evernote today, yesterday, last week? I want to set myself a goal to produce 20k per week, and it sounds like Evernote could achieve that easily. Is there an extension that does that? I am new to Evernote and I have a hard time finding extensions/plugins. If such an extension exist, I would be happy to help improve it. If it does not exist, and other users look for the same feature, I am ready to invest in the Evernote API to develop the extension myself. Nice to have: I would like to define special tags (proof reading 1, proof reading 2) to define the maturity of text. That could lead to different goals, such as bring 2 blog posts, 3k long, to pf2 level.
  10. I have been using Evernote for at least a couple of years now (was it that long??). While I love everything about this app including desktop and mobile clients, abilities to sync the data between all computer and gadgets - I want more (of course). I would like to use this app not just as a notebook that contains information but also as a word processor. Basic features that would make me extremely happy are: 1. Ability to set up a page in 8 by 11 inch format 2. Having a "comment" option 3. Ability to set left / right / top / bottom margins 4. View the long texts in "page" format I think Evernote has a great potentials in the writing community. There is no software today that is able to do what Evernote does. Please?
