Hello All; I have been using Evernote for about 4 years now and just went to the premium service. I am also in college and starting to write papers. I would like to see a bibliography and references ability added to Evernote. An article in a magazine saying Evernote wanted to be the only information manager you ever needed, convinced me to start using the application. It seems to me citations,bibliographies, and references are the lifeblood of anyone who writes. If Evernote really wants to be the best note taking solution for serious and professional writers, being able to add citations on-the-fly is critical. Regards, Robert Williamson
Hello, I am working on using evernote to track papers im reading or will read. I also want to keep a citation db. Right now, I have my evernote stack full of papers (pdfs) synced to my dropbox. Then mendeley watches that folder so I can get the metadata. I would like to start adding the author keywords as evernote tags. I don't think there is any automated way to do this, but is there a way I can copy a list of tags and paste them as separate tags? Example list: Colour; Image annotation; Image retrieval; Machine learning; Semantic gap; Shape; Texture
That's quite a handful! Let me explain the logic behind each one. Don't get me wrong, Evernote is a wonderful piece of software, a solid 9/10 in my view. Just that with these additions - at least for me - it would become a 10/10. (1) Custom taxonomies In Evernote, you are just limited to Notebooks and Tags as a means of organization. Since I'm a heavy tags user, I end up having to come up with intricate and not very efficient means of organizing them. So, I put a $- prefix for document classifications; a q- prefix for note types (e.g. article; image; video; book review; interview; etc); a # prefix for people; a numeric prefix for time classifications; an @ prefix for places; etc, etc. It would be much easier if I could just create separate custom taxonomies of a tag-like form for each of those. This could be made even more effective by enabling different post taxonomies (e.g. for books reviews vs. recipes vs. wine reviews vs. "vanilla" standard notes) and custom meta boxes that could be associated with each post type, but maybe I'm going off the reservation by now. In other words, basically make it like WordPress where creating custom taxonomies (in addition to default Categories and Tags) and custom post types (in addition to Posts and Pages) is quite easy. (2) Easier Tags Management * When you select two tags, you can also choose to show notes that either have an AND relationship or an OR relationship with them. (Current default is AND). * Add combinations of Notebook/Tag to short-cuts (currently you can only add a notebook or a tag individually). But what if I want to only have a shortcut for a particular tag in one particular notebook? * When you select a tag and start scrolling up to take it to its desired parent, the scrolling speed can be frustratingly slow... problem if you've accumulated a hundred or so tags that need to be organized into parents! (3) Reference/citation Support With this one stroke it would basically make Scrivener redundant. Though I'm aware writers are a niche market, nonetheless I don't imagine it would be very hard to implement and the absolute numbers of those who'll benefit (and use the software more!) are large.
Hello, Evernote Premium user / in conjunction with The Secret Weapon system here. I'm currently writing a book and I think it would be really convenient to use Evernote to write it. Not only does it have most of Scrivener's features, but it also has other useful things like syncing, tags, and integration with the rest of the information, accumulated research, and tasks that I keep on it. Now if only there was some way to easily insert endnotes, then I would simply create a note for each chapter and get going without any further hesitations. But all too regrettably that is not possible, at least as of now. Are there any plans to add this functionality? I see that there have been some requests on this subject from 2012 - did they end up going anywhere? Thanks in advance. PS. The option I'm settling on now is to create a note for each chapter in a project specific notebook, and attach a Word document to each of those notes that will contain the actual chapter. Notes on, plans for, and images/graphs for each chapter will also be contained in that note. When its finished, I will simply combine all those Word documents into one and publish. Does this sound like a good plan? Has anyone written a book using Word embeds within Evernote? PPS. I do have a Scrivener license, but I have yet to really get into the groove of it. And I have to start writing this book sooner rather than later. I don't wish to do it with software that I neither understand very well nor enjoy using very much.
