  1. I'm a researcher and I spend a lot of time reading and annotating papers with my thoughts and comments. I'm trying to use evernote to save on printing them out and also to keep them all together. When I use upad or penultimate with my stylus, I can free handwrite on the pdf. However, when I annotate a pdf in evernote with a stylus, the programme "smooths" the line I draw making it difficult to handwrite. Further, if I handwrite I often will double tap the screen in the process of writing a word, meaning that the previous stroke of the pen is selected for deletion (try handwriting t, or h, in annotation mode). In order to continue writing I have to tap somewhere else on the screen mid word or letter and then go back to it, which slows me down and makes annotation unusuable. Can evernote fix this by having a handwrite annotation option on pdf annotation? This is vital if I'm going to write comments on a pdf, I don't want to type as I find doing so on an ipad slow and unweildy. Further small point - when I open a pdf to annotate, the "arrow" is the default annotation tool, to save time, it would be better if evernote remembered the last tool you were using and opened with this onel. I note this has been an ongoing problem since 2014 for researchers trying to use evernote, and will push people onto other platforms:
  2. Hi Evernote, Can you give any insight on the Evernote text engine? I've heard that it was different on each platform, and not from a unified Latex or other standardized text engine. When I try to add chemical formula names like C3H8O I notice that Mac App Evernote doesn't always handle subscripts all that well. Usually it works, but sometimes I have to fight the app. Even the block of text between these two chemicals is acting weird with their formatting. Copy/paste these these two propanols and try to delete the blank space to see if you have the same issue. C3H8O C3H8O Any insights? Any hope of an easy fix? I use PopClip and TextSoap a lot! thanks, Stephen
  3. The ability to add longer comments to a specific portion of the PDF, in a way that doesn't block the view of the main text, would make Evernote a crucial part of the workflow for many Academics. While the highlighting tool in PDF annotation is wonderful, I'd like to be able to add anchored comments - longish text annotations anchored at specific points on the PDF using Evernote. So far, it looks like I can add text, but I have two choices: if it's hanging off the edge of the PDF it disappears, and if it's not hanging off the edge it covers the existing text of the PDF, making it worse than useless. The stamp tool only allows for very short little labels. Here's an example of what I mean. I think the addition of this capability would dramatically improve the PDF annotation tool, and help solidify Evernote's place in the world of Academic note-taking.
  4. Hi All, I'm new to Evernote. I have started using it on an iPad mini to take notes during talks. I have a few questions: 1. In addition to my notetaking, I like being able to photograph a juicy slide if there's a lot of information, rather than scribbling it down. But I notice the evernote camera app is a lot less robust than the iPad's if I'm in an imperfect position or the light is bad. Do people just switch back and forth all the time? 2. Relatedly, once I take a picture, I find it fussy to get the keyboard back up and to a line under the photo. Right now I click on the text above the photo and then tap the photo a couple times, and sometimes I get to the line under the photo. What's the proper sequence of touches to do this? 3. Often in talks I'll hear citations from people. Is there an easy way to tag these inside the note and then scrape them into a meta-note of "stuff to read"? I realize I could do this manually, but I'm one of those people coming to Evernote because I don't like to spend a lot of time organizing stuff, rather than the type of person who comes to Everynote because they like organizing their stuff. Thanks!
  5. I just discovered Evernote and kinda become a fan, mostly after watching your videos. You've done a fantastic job. I think part of the success is due to the personal development ingredients. I confess I never really succeed to determine myself to do the right to thing, although generally I am so passionate of my work that I stay after hours just to study one problem or another and to try the best way to write that article... A bit about me. I am in the research / teaching field in an University of Medicine in a small town in Romania. Because all other medical centers have more research experience the get all research money. So we have to rely on what we have, few equipment and reagents. So, to compensate we must found new ways to help the senior researchers and to try to get to as many conferences as we can, to absorb very much information and to write good research papers that could be published. I work in the microbiology field and do a lot of online scanning for ideas for my classes and books and conference papers and so on. No problem, but on top of it we must do other things, like some paperwork for faculty, cause I'm the assistant of department head, and also the assistant/secretary of the chief of medical analysis laboratory (the same person) . In the laboratory more paperwork, a lot of small routine things that kinda disrupt her and mine focus of mind and at the end of the day we look back and realized that we've done very little, so we stay more to Finnish the scientific part that is always neglected. I take online classes about all this, waiting, statistics, genetics, managing but I apply to little. So, I discovered evernote from a lecture podcast in which a US professor mentioned how it helped him when he attended a conference, so I grabbed it but let it go cause I have a very slow Android phone. Recently I buyer a tablet, rediscovered evernote and went to a conference where I played more with it. Now about how I organized the system. From 10 years I was searching for some way to synchronize the files between the many computers I have to work. In research and especially in theory one must classify the information he finds in various articles on the same subject. Let's say I study a microbe, let's say staphylococcus, resistance to antibiotics. I must go online and find a description of bacteria, collect many pictures to choose from, find some recent articles about the resistance other researchers encountered, then find old articles to compare the evolution of resistance over time, then analyze statistically my data, compare my results with theirs, and thinking I can bring something new? With manual methods in a world of automated wonders. All these in a bits of time between two classes, two lab tests. Etc. So I'm a researcher, teacher, statistician, designer, lab technician, secretary etc. A different wonder why I didn't excel on any of these. Is my head to small? I permanently doing something, thinking, writing on a piece of paper etc. So in evernote I begin with catalogating information ability. I recreated a bit my folder structure using notebooks. So I have: a doc stack with notebooks on the main interest domain; a personal stack with notes on bills, fotoid, contact info like business cards, To-do lists; a research stack with results, grants opened, opportunities, a notes stack with notes on conferences, presentations, books, articles. Now what I wonder: Q1. In the old computer I had a separated folder on pictures. Now it seems more logical to mix them with text articles and Web clippings. Q2. In the old computer I had a folder with research projects. Seems logical for each project to make a notebook. How should I link the notebook with the relevant articles in the documents stack? Through tags. But if I have a project about antibiotics resistance, I should do separate tags for every bacteria and for every antibiotic used in a project. If I use 10 antibiotics on 10 bacteria that means 20 tags for a note. Nice if you could tag notebooks. I want to easy retrieve the info, evernote to show me that 10 years ago I have studied same bacteria, together with another 19, but I can go to that article and extract the data for bacteria I am interested in. Should I rely on the full text search inside the note or attached documents? I already have 100+ tags and 70 notebooks. And I reviewed just a quarter of my hard drive information. I discovered I had many duplicates, because one time thought that the article belongs to that field, another time I put a similar article in another place cause I thought differently about where it belongs. Or my boss thought different. That's exactly I desperately need the tagging structure of evernote. Just this for now, I see a million problems in transferring my work in evernote and I'm in the process of watching videos and hopefully some of them will resolve. Seems like more information I throw in, more rewarding it gets. Maybe I'll write them in a list as they arose, but I don't wanna bother you with a 10 pages letter. Hope to find here fellow academic researcher who use this prog and share there thoughts Respectfully
  6. Hello, This is my first post on this forum. I've used evernote for a long time but only recently am I starting to see its full potential. I want to run an idea past you all which I'm toying with at the moment to see if any others have used evernote in this way and if you foresee any problems before I invest too much time in the approach. I'm starting a PhD and what I'm planning is to use evernote to effectively store my highlights from academic papers as well as my notes and thoughts on them. The normal approach would just be to highlight pdfs with adobe or whatever and when it gets to write up time just hope you remember where the important sections are. My plan with evernote is to do this by going through the paper (converted to text from pdf by word 2013's remarkably good new converter), copying over sections to a notebook specific for that paper and tagging them up based on what that section is about, which of my write-ups it is likely to be useful for, etc. etc. I think this might in the end, once I've read 100+ papers, be a vastly more efficient filing system. I should be able to combine tag searches to find all the relevant sections from a vast number of papers for anything I'm trying to write. What do you all think? Do you foresee any problems with the approach? Does anyone else do anything similar to this? Thank you for reading, Stephen
  7. Hey guys! I'm just a newbie into the Evernote world, but I'm drinking in videos and ebooks like there's no tomorrow. My girlfriend and I working with a research project here at the University here in New England (as students/researchers) with the aim to use Evernote (and a few other tools) as a "2nd Brain" for incoming freshman. It involves integrating an Evernote system of "Best Practices" so that the technology tools help us reach our goal. The goal? Better grades, better productivity, and a better way to learn / work with data. In other words - what many of you guys are GREAT at If you're experienced on Evernote and understand "best practices" that might be functional, I'd love to let you be a part of this project! Please email my girlfriend here: laurendambra@my.uri.edu Developing a functional, efficient, flexible "framework" for Academics is an ART, and I know many of you ar much better artists than the random few Grad Students we have were working on this project! Thanks so much I look forward to learning with you! Best, -Daniel
