  1. Hi all, I made a simple service to let you write Markdown notes on your local machine or mobile phone, using your preferred text editor, and have it synced via Dropbox to Evernote: https://notes.giggy.com It's very lightweight atm. One-way syncing only. No tags. No sub-folders. I can add these things later if enough people are interested... Why? I really like Evernote. But I don't like the interface to Evernote. As a coder, I like the interface to Atom, Sublime Text, and iTerm. I love writing in a plain text editor with Markdown format. Markdown is a beautiful thing. Unfortunately, Evernote doesn't let me use markdown. I like to write a lot of notes and Evernote isn't the most convenient thing to pull up. Sometimes I like to write very long notes and Evernote gets laggy. I don't like to rely on a third party service to hold all my content, so it's nice to have a local copy of everything. And... I was curious about AWS Lambda and needed a good test project. I couldn't find the solution I wanted (which was so simple, I couldn't believe somebody didn't do it already...), so I created a free service to write in markdown and have it synced to Evernote. You can use any text editor to write markdown on your local machine (Atom, Sublime Text, Visual Studio, Notepad), save it into a linked Dropbox folder, and it will appear as a properly formatted note in Evernote within a few seconds. I also use the Jottings app on my iPhone to link to the same dropbox folder so that notes from my phone can also appear on my computer desktop and Evernote. Works great for me! If you have feedback, let me know. Thanks! Travis
  2. I've looked everywhere and I find that you can make a copy of your databases for backup purposes, but what happens if you move that to Dropbox on your local drive instead? Wouldn't that be a backup. Dropbox lets you go back and restore files if needed. So rather than C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Evernote\Evernote\Databases, just change it to something like C:\Dropbox\Evernote?
  3. Hey all, recently Dropbox announced their new service that is still in beta and is being developed. Sites like The Verge and TechInsider posted some good overviews of what it does. But by checking out full dropbox paper review I noticed that Dropbox are getting onto Evernote's turf and might as well be dominating it very very soon. What do you think about it? Are you gonna switch? It's pretty power and all web based, so no clunky software needs to be downloaded.
  4. I would love to see Evernote add the ability to index all the files I have stored in Dropbox. This would allow me to easily search across all my stored Dropbox files. Let's hope this feature comes to Evernote very soon.
  5. Does anyone have any good tips for me please? I use two macs (work & home) that are synced by Dropbox. I also use Evernote/Notes as a kind landing strip for projects and like to add 'file://' to the path to create links, e.g,. '/Users/work/Dropbox/untitled.txt' becomes 'file:///Users/work/Dropbox/untitled.txt'. This takes me from Evernote/Notes to the Dropbox file/folder. Great. But if I hit the link from home, the path is wrong (it's needs to be 'file:///Users/home/Dropbox/untitled.txt'). I know that I can replace the root directory with a tilde. So this means I could reformat the links that I use so that they use which ever machine I'm working on - this is what I want to achieve. But when I use the form 'file:///~/home/Dropbox/untitled.txt' from Evernote, the link doesn't work. Beyond changing my root directory names to match, can anyone suggest a way to achieve a single link format that works on both macs pls?
  6. A number of people in our office use note taking software (EverNote, OneNote, Google Docs). As you may know, these products allow users to save notes to cloud accounts set up by the user. This creates a security issue for us – if someone leaves we need to make sure that notes taken during their employment at the company stay in our possession. I would like people to store work related notes on a Partners controlled platform. Hence the following questions: 1. Can we set up EverNote to save to a cloud storage service we control? e.g. Dropbox 2. If so, is this feature only available to the pay-version of the app? 3. (optional) What are the top 5 features of EverNote that make it preferable to competitors (e.g., OnNote)?
  7. I want to be able to export or share certain notes with other cloud programs like Box ... Emailing files is too clumsy, Even if I prefer one cloud or clipping program over another, I have colleagues that use other programs andI need to be able to easily share/export files from Evernote to other apps...Among the ones that should be supported are Box, Dropbox, Google Drive,
  8. My work routine relies heavily on storing successive versions of files I'm working on in the same note, and right now I can only do this on my Mac, not on my iPhone or iPad. When will we be able to attach files (other than photos) to an existing note in Evernote for iOS ? I can't imagine being alone in sorely needing this feature. Every major—and not so major—competitor to Evernote allows this. iOS now makes it trivially easy to implement. It would be a fantastic improvement that would require minimal effort. Please?
  9. Dear Forum, I have a personal and now a work dropbox account. I would like to change the dropbox account I use to back up penultimate to from my personal to work account which has more storage. How do I do that? Any ideas as I have checked in advanced setting and the Dropbox shows an Import Files option only. Thanks Simon
  10. I want the ability to export (and import) notes to cloud servixes such as Google Drive and Dropbox. This would help me because my teachers don't like Work Chat and I don't know why. They want me to upload my notes and homework to google drive. I think this feature would be helpful for everyone. There should also be auto upload so evernote could automaticaaly upload my notes.
  11. Hi everyone, maybe some of you productivity experts can help me out. I'm working in the medical field and currently use my Macbook to check up on medical literature. It works like this: 1.) Find medical papers (PDF) and save them in an dropbox folder ("to-review"). 2.) Once a week I go through the new papers, and decide which ones to keep. 3.) The ones I want to keep get transferred to evernote with some parts copied out of them, summaries written in the note etc. Some notes on a broader topic also have more than one PDF in them (different guidelines, papers and so on). This works fine on my macbook - but I'd love to do it with my iPad (much easier on the go, nicer to read through the PDFs). My problems with this currently are: - The files that are in the "Review"-Dropbox folder are not offline in the dropbox app. - Even if that would work, how could I send the PDFs to evernote (to a new note or attach to an already existing note)? Do you have any idea or had the same problems? Thanks a lot for your help!
  12. From an iOS device you can only add to the notes, photographs, leaving the only option to do so from a PC or Mac. It would be a very good option, you can add any type of file on mobile devices. the option to search for files on Dropbox, Google Drive should exist, etc.
  13. I've understood that there is no "native" way to automatically import stuff from a given folder in the Mac version of Evernote, without resorting to AppleScripts that may or may not work after an update to either the operating system or Evernote. But, in the Windows version you can do this from Evernote itself. So this is something of a workaround, but if you use Dropbox or any other Cloud storage service (who doesn't these days?) AND you have access to a Windows computer that stays on most of the time, like a media sharing machine at home, your computer at work, in the basement or whatever, you can set up Evernote for Windows on that one, and set the Import folder to be a folder in your Cloud service. This way, any file that is placed in this folder from any computer, will be synced to Evernote through the Windows machine automatically no matter where you happen to be when putting it in there. The caveat is that the Windows machine must stay powered on at all times for this to work seamlessly. If you just want to be sure that the contents gets into Evernote eventually, you can rely on it being imported when you power on the Windows machine, anyway. Just a clumsy workaround for something that should be implemented on all versions of Evernote! Chris
  14. I used to be able to to export scans to my Dropbox account, I could do this until this last update. I NEED TO ACCESS DROPBOX from Scannable. Please tell me how to do this. Thanks. --Laura
  15. First time poster - so I apologize in advance for "another one of those" posts. (Wait - what? This isn't reddit - and no one wants to take off my head for asking a stupid question? Awesome!) I am not 1000% sure I am using Evernote correctly, but it feels good - and I have never stopped anything that felt good. I am mostly just creating notes, and tucking them in notebooks here and there. I am mostly making generic notebooks for the various aspects of my life - and stacking notebooks within those, for the organization of those "aspects". I am going to town with tags - so that I can find stuff later.... My question is - should I be trying to use Dropbox more, in conjunction with EN? Specifically: I am in Sales - as well as Marketing. In order to juggle both jobs separately, I am attempting to go as mobile as possible. In my sales role, we use brochures (we call sell sheets) that are basically just 1-2 page PDFs about the product. There is probably about 50-60 of them I would guess. Should I put each PDF into EN - in a "Sell Sheets" folder....or should I dump them into a DB folder, and grab them on the go from there? I would be saving the additional cost of EN for now - but I know it is inevitable that I am going to have to go premium. I like that I can send the sell sheets from my email in EN - but I probably should have those come from my company email account (so I would probably have to email them from DB anyway - right?) I could change to my company email to be my EN email too - I assume. Anyway - I thought I would dip my toes into this forum, and see what the recommendations would be.
  16. I want the text files I create in a folder on my Dropbox to be synced as notes on Evernote. I also want edits to those notes to sync back to Dropbox, if possible.
  17. Please help. I'm a newbie here and honestly am technically challenged. Having said that, I had been using Penultimate on my iPad for quite sometime without any issues. When doing so, I was having all my notes backed up on Dropbox. Well after a recent upgrade which changed Penultimate to Evernote, I cannot access my most important files. This is really devastating and I need to get these back somehow. Any ideas? THANK YOU!
  18. I'm using Windows 7 and by right clicking on a file in My Documents I can 'send it to Evernote. This works fine but when I change and save the file again it doesn't change in Evernote even tho I click on 'sync'. Should I be copying/importing files into Evernote by a different method. Many thanks to anyone who can help. Joe
  19. I lot of you guys using notability with evernote should know this trick: Using this IFTTT recipe: THIS which links your notability backup in dropbox to gmail and forward to your evernote. It will appear in your evernote as a pdf which is like the normal pdf you can view in evernote, not a .zip file or just a link, like this: This is under the dropbox sync setting as PDF only. However, if i set to PDF + audio. It will update a .zip file to my evernote. What is the point of syncing if I can't view and hear my notes directly in evernote? The reason I want to use notability is the function of AUDIO NOTES with normal notes taking. This is really important during lectures and conferences. But evernote is important as my second brain to store everything and allows me to review the notes easily. (But it is not efficient for quick notes taking esp. when I need to type and record and take photos at the same time) An integration / automation of the two apps will be great for me. I can make my notes efficiently by notability and archive them in evernote. So..does anyone has a solution????? Please help me :-(
  20. I'm sure this has been answered before but my searching abilities on the forum are obviously poor, as I can't find it. I recently hit that monthly limit message to sync with Evernote. As a Dropbox user, I thought it would be better for me to sync with it. I did do the manual "send to", but I wonder if there is an autosync ability. Once I set up my Dropbox account on Penultimate, I started sync again and received the same "limit" message. Any suggestions or comments? Thanks,
  21. I've been using Evernote for a few years now and love it. I can build notes that include all the related content for some work no matter the form -- text notes, images, attachments. The one issue I run into is that I have documents that ideally need to be stored on the file system and should be attached in Evernote (in the former case to maintain a collection of assets for a project that can easily be browsed, shared, etc. and in the latter case to add meaningful content for a note from a design meeting or other piece of work). I would love to see Evernote integrate with Dropbox as many other web applications have (and with other cloud storage e.g. Google Drive, Box, etc.). Here is what I would love to see. Within Evernote I can choose "add file from Dropbox" and then I can browse, select, and add the link to the file (not a copy of the file). In Dropbox it would be nice to have an "add to Evernote" function as I look at a file, and ideally be able to select an existing note or create a new one, but for me this is less important. The link in Evernote would remain correct even if I move the location in my Dropbox folders. If I click on the link and edit the file, the file is the "one" copy managed by Dropbox and is picked up from my local synced drive if available otherwise from the web. In an ideal world, the integration would ensure that if I delete the file in dropbox and it is linked to Evernote notes I receive a warning and maybe the option to attach the file to the Evernote note(s) in place of the links before deleting in Dropbox. Thanks for considering.
  22. I use Ghostwriter constantly for my work, but suddenly I can't send my notes by email or through Dropbox. Does anyone know when this problem will be fixed or what I can do to fix it? I'm not a computer professional, so please be patient with my lack of expertise. If I should be addressing this to a different group, please let me know. Tried reaching Ghostwriter directly but it's app seems to have disappeared from iTunes. Thank you for your help.
  23. Hi - I'm planning to use Evernote to create student portfolios in a kindergarten class. These will include audio files, photos and notes. I'm so excited about the relative ease with which I will be able to do this compared to other methods used in the previous year. However, I'm concerned about the security of the files and how to transfer/backup files. 1. Are my files secure? Is there a way of making them more secure. 2. What is the best way to back up. I'm a new user of dropbox and would prefer to backup using that program. Having not been taught exactly how to do it, I tried clicking, dragging and dropping to a new file over to dropbox. I ended up with a file but dropbox can't read the file - I also tried exporting it and then just got a hodgepodge of symbols. ooops, can you tell, I'm way over my head. Any assistance, guidance or help would be most appreciated. janet
  24. I used Skitch for iPad for my first real-world bug -- grabbing a screen shot of an app bug. Snapping and annotating were delightful. But then I wanted the image on my Mac. I expected to find a way to put the image in my iPad's Dropbox. The best I found was emailing the image to myself. Please add Dropbox support to Skitch. -- Ward
  25. Hello everyone. Recently embarking on the paperless journey, I have quickly realized that for the elegant simplicity of naming and tagging documents to be thrown into the Evernote soup and retrieved later via metadata or a robust search, there are many hang-ups in doing so with documents that one either needs to edit, ammend, aggregate, or otherwise tinker with while doing work. Whether these documents are as basic as MS Office files, or as complex as large statistical data sets, there are things that, at this juncture, just cannot live happily in the Evernote world. Without a boring discourse, I really have two fundamental questions: For those who require a file structure outside of evernote to do work (be it because of file formatting, frequent editing, sharing with non-evernoters, firewall issues for EN syncing, etc) - what, if any, program(s) do you use to achieve a similar level of ubiquitous access to your files as is provided in Evernote (i.e. Dropbox, Sugarsync, GDrive, etc.).? Whether you use a cloud sync tool or not, what is your preferred method of non-Evernote folder/file nomenclature/project structure? Does your file and folder nomenclature change if the documents are to eventually be archived in Evernote? I have grown quite fond of the YYMMDD prefix that Grumpy Monkey has adapted for his digital life, but I am struggling with how such a filing identifier can be adopted into a file naming system which also uses things like job (project) identifier codes (i.e. project 172C) to categorize and track things like costing, logistics coordination and billing. I ask these things because it appears as though I am quite unintentionally relying upon Evernote as a capture and action-related tool due to the bulk of my ongoing work taking place outside of Evernote. At the same time, I see great utility in combining the two, and at the very least would like to develop a work process that naturally feeds one into the other (or back and forth between the two). Any advice or experience in this area is, of course, much appreciated. Thank you all in advance for your valuable input on these forums. Without your willingness to share your experiences, I would still be mired in the paper/digital hinterland with the lion's share of my colleagues. It has drastically changed the way I approach information and work.
