  1. Tablet user request

    Many of us work primarily from a tablet, I work from iPad. There are many usability features missing from iOS that makes using Evernote extremely inconvenient. On iOS though we can see our tags, we cannot rename nor delete them. On iOS there is not a way to export our notes to a .enex On iOS there is not a way to import a .enex Those three missing feature are a tablet user’s Evernote deal breaker. Being able to work around them we must get to a computer. Many road warriors gave up on desktop computers, and as their laptops give up the ghost they are moving to tablets. I know some that gave away their laptops preferring the convenience of a tablet. Evernote’s web UI is abysmal, sorely lacking in features. Come-on Evernote, you need to put much more effort for us tablet users. Be aware, Bear and OneNote now have extremely good Evernote .enex import ability.
  2. Import from Filemaker Pro 13

    I created a simple database using Filemaker 13 for Mac. The application keeps crashing and I was encouraged to upgrade to the current version, but my needs are too basic to justify the cost. I'd much rather upgrade to premium Evernote if it's possible to import what I have. I have used Evernote for years for very rudimentary lists and such. The Filemaker database is a couple of steps up from that: 9 fields, one of which contains sometimes lengthy notes, plus one field in which I attach files, usually PDFs of documents (I used this database to store and search for my research notes and related reports/documents). Filemaker's export option says the formats it will export to are comma-separated text, DBF, merge, HTML tables, XML, and Excel .xlsx. There are about 1300 records. The ideal scenario is that I export the database in a format that allows me then to upload it to a Notebook with all the notes intact (even more ideal: all my keywords turn into tags). Any suggestions?
  3. It's nice to have some help to move files around, and maybe rename them, archive them, maybe even create a reading (or a review) list. I normally suggest Belvedere for this task, which is an old-ish app based on an AHK script that mainly used to move files from one location (usually my scanner destination folder) into an Import folder appropriate to the name of the file. Basically it filed my edited scanning for me. Seems like there's a new sheriff in town however. I just found DropIt! (The exclamation point is entirely me - sorry..) "Drop a group of different files and folders on the floating DropIt image and it sorts them to defined destination folders, compresses or extracts them, opens them with associated programs or performs other defined actions." (From the website) It will: If (my) Evernote is to be believed, I actually knew about this app in 2011, but I only installed and used it in anger a few days ago. I don't even recall who gave me the link now (sorry again) but I just dropped about 100 files into the icon on my desktop and for each new file type was asked (effectively) "what should I do with this?". PDF files over a certain size can go direct to a cloud drive now - and I'll see whether I can add a 'packing list' to attach to a note so I know exactly what is where. Other files with keywords in the title can go to my default notebook import folder, or to my local notebook 'receipts' folder, or to... wherever. I'm proceeding slowly to minimise unexpected outcomes, but it's very easy to script actions at my beginner level, and the app is clearly capable of a great deal more. I'd definitely suggest having a look at it - it took ages to get through the initial list - though I've had live assistants that would have taken longer to get the system in their head - but the next time I drop a bunch of files I just have to deal with a few new queries. My progress towards Worlds Laziest Man is already on target for this year
  4. Hi, I'm trying to add a 2018 calendar template to my Evernote (Premium, Windows 7); I have found no template for 2018, so I decided to try it with a WORD document from http://www.kalenderpedia.de/kalender/kalender-januar-2018-word-vorlagen.html. I downloaded the Word file, saved it as HTML, but when I drag&drop it to an Evernote note, then it is added as attachment. How can I show the HTML file "as is" (calendar) in a note, not simply as an attachment please? Thanks. kalender-januar-2018-querformat.htm
  5. PDF import doubled

    Since one of the last updates I get every imported pdf-file twice. One of those just states some useless information. I have to delete it every time. It does not matter if this import comes from my Mac or from my smartphone. Any idea? Thanks
  6. There are some old references in the EN forums to Diigo and Evernote. Are there any recent updates for importing Diigo bookmarks into EN (and keeping them as separate, individual bookmarks)? I have tried importing bookmarks from my Chrome and Safari browsers into EN, but the import doesn't break down the bookmarks individually, as they are listed in the browsers. If they are in a lump in EN, they don't really do much good.
  7. Why not to accept EPUB as a exchange format? Even more, why not use EPUB as the real format for all system? It is time to assume that Evernote is not an notetaking-App, is a online-white-paper-App. We are who decide if we are writing a short or long text, temporal or permanent, personal or public and son on. In both cases, we will need formatting tools to create this text, this writing. For many, Evernote is the updated version of windows notepad-app for this 21st century, but we need more than that app. Doing this you will have the solution for many questions: - Title, headings, subheadings: great to write more than two lines of text! - Style format (colours, fonts): avoiding untidy notes - Tablet of content/index: navigability trough large and dense notes - Export/import option as EPUB: rather than ENEX format or HTML files - Storage option: any place as one file, that is EPUB - Online minimalist EPUB editor: simply text without see any html code - No printers, no paper: users just need and want digital content So finally, Evernote will be a huge online place where you can start with a minimum note of one line. Then, you can go far adding more text and contents, creating a report, a diary. Even, completing a novel or a thesis by parts or doing all in one place. Then, if someone need further publishing software, there are many applications (Indesing, QuarkPress, etc). All of them ready to create printings and more developed solutions for experts. Nowadays, for real digital life, nobody needs a old fashion formats like DOC or PDF, which are prepared to be "printed" in a paper or in a screen. For many of us, with a Evernote is more than enough. Google knows it. They have GoogleDocs that in fact is an editor of super-html, that is, EPUB. There you can download it in EPUB format (however you cannot upload EPUB to there...). Even Evernote already knows this, because in fact, ENEX format is a kind of compressed html, that is again, a kind of EPUB format.
  8. Hello. There is a bug during import of OneNote notebooks featuring notes with PDF attachments. The screenshots here tell the story. In OneNote when you insert a PDF it includes not just the PDF file itself (which can be re-extracted) but also an inline rendered version. This is an incredibly useful way to organize PDFs, since you get the best of both worlds. You can see a preview inline, and know that if you ever need to get the original PDF back out again in the future it's right there. I'm hedging my bets on OneNote by making sure I can get back to Evernote some day if I ever need or want to, and today Evernote will not retain the embedded PDF. It only retains the inline rendered version. Without Evernote's ability to keep the original .PDF available converting back will be painful or impossible. I have hundreds and hundreds of PDFs embedded this way so manually extracting them before converting back to Evernote is not viable. Please find a way to preserve PDF files during OneNote import. This issue has also been discussed on this forum thread. Everynote Skipping Some of the Attachment in Onenote During Import
  9. I exported some notebooks and tried to reimport them on another machine. I tried it with 3 notebooks and the whole notebook and I allways get "cant_set_note_tag" I am missing 8, 5 and 2 entries from 50 to 100 entries depending on the notebook.
  10. Greetings, I am a newcomer to Evernote. I have been using Apple Notes as the main app. Now, want to try out this Evernote app. One quick question: How do I import about 2000+ notes from my Apple Notes app to this Evernote? Of course, I don't want to manually copy and paste them into this Evernote. Your help is much appreciated. John9569
  11. Hi all. I have the version one of DayOne app with about 2-300 entries. Including pics and texts. Now Evernote has a password/Touch ID secuirty I have decided to use this app as my personal diary instead of DayOne. Ive done a search on how to export from DayOne to Evernote but failed to find any clearly and defined way. Has anyone discovered a way to do this efficiently?
  12. I'd like to import files that have been tagged in macOS. The tags are lost now on import into EN.
  13. I created a Shared Notebook, and I used the Tools | Import Folders feature to link folders on my file system that I want included into a shared index. Unfortunately, every time I edit an Excel file in one of those folders, Evernote is importing TWO "new" files. One of these is the original Excel file, and the second one is the automatically-created backup of this file. I edit some of these files 30 times a day. If I am doing a long edit I am constantly saving updates to the file system, and there Evernote goes and uploads these as new files. This is a real disaster because I end up with 60 new files that are all actually duplicates from the standpoint of people using the Notebook. If this is EverNote's idea of version control, it is not a useful implementation of the idea. This behavior makes the feature nearly unusable for actively maintained folders. Plan A: I looked for a way to turn off the automatic updating on a per-folder basis. I don't see that as an option! That isn't a good design. How can Evernote not see that actively maintained folders are going to generate lots of updates that create duplicate files? Plan B: Is there a way to alter this behavior globally? At this point, I would be okay with leaving the automatic updates turned off in some global option, and then once a week I do the update manually. Plan C: Assuming none of the above are possible, then would I be able to at least delete the entries in the Import folder function, and ever week when I want to do the update I would re-establish those entries and then when the update is finished I delete the entries again? Something tells me that if I do this, when I re-establish the Import Folder to the same files, I will end up with the entire Notebook duplicated. Plan D: Assuming nothing about this feature actually works for this application, then I am left with the possibility that I have to create the Notebook, import the folders, then immediately delete the Import Folder links. Once a week, I then have to delete the entire Notebook, recreate it from scratch, and resend invitations to Share the Notebook. That could get old fast, for both the content creator and the content users. This is pretty frustrating.
  14. I am using the email into evernote feature often using tags to immediately assign them. Also other people are sending notes directly into my evernote. I often have troublefindig these because there si no way to see you have received a note. Is there an option mohave a notification somehow to see you have a new note?
  15. Evernote and Excel

    Hope this is the proper forum since it deals with 3rd party app and scripting. Not actually an "idea," although it is tangentially.. Is it possible to open a EN notebook using Excel script? If so, how?
  16. Hi, Feature request. I'm guessing it's been requested in the past but in case it hasn't, have Evernote monitor import folders and synchronize deletions, renames, etc. Thanks. RBL
  17. Does evernote have the ability to import from Notes+? Looking to carry over notes structure over as well. Thanks
  18. I want to switch from Onenote to Evernote. When I copy notes to the clipboard and paste into evernote, I only get a PNG, not pure text. If I make an intermediate step over a text editor, it works. This is very tedious. Where could the error be? Please excuse my bad english
  19. I have a collection of business cards stored on a third paty application called camcard and I'd like to know if there's a way to import them to evernote.
  20. I just got a new computer, so I exported all my local folders to .enex files as instructed by Evernote. I then installed Evernote onto my new machine, signed in, and started importing the .enex files. Periodically it would say that it couldn't import a specific note and that it put it in a temporary file. I have something like 30 notes in this temporary file. I can't restore these notes and am afraid to turn off my computer for fear of losiing them. What do I do? I have tried contacting Evernote using a support ticket, but the actual submit button never shows up. I choose the 3 levels of category and then nothing, no pop up window, no submit button, nothing. Please help. I really don't want to lose these notes. (and yes I have switched my new computer over to be one of the 2 allowed computers on my free subscription)
  21. most system setup have in average a folder depth of 5 to 7 folders Evernote has only the ability to import only 3 levels and leaving out the rest Example structlre like 1st level expenses 2nd level --years -2015 3rd level ----Quarters-- Q1 4th level -- Months----- Jan 5th level ------purpose---------- Private 5th Level -----purpose---------- Business there are many other ways that always go beyond the 3 levels limitiation or Evernote please increase the folder import and sync to 5 or 7 levels to imported
  22. Please find a way to make all text in Moleskine notebooks extractable & importable into other uses/applications (like calendars & To Do Lists). At present, it's supposedly "searchable." However, the search never works for me. This was the whole reason I got the Moleskines & Evernote Premium. As I understand it, it's supposed to only be searchable, and it simply inserts images as a jpg (rather than doing anything with the text.)
  23. I was considering using evernote but it does not import my notes which are in rich text format. The folder is archived as Folder->Sub-Folders with each sub-folder containing a note... I'm curious why the import sub-folders option does not work. Any ideas? Thanks!
  24. Hello EN Forum, I'm a new user to EN having just purchased the Premium package. Powerful stuff! I've converted all of my Microsoft OneNote files into EN and that was very easy to do. However I'm stuck a point where I don't seem to be able to move forward with this product. For several years I had two main ways of collecting and using data: 1) Content went straight to OneNote, or; 2) Content saved or captured into PDF files of which I have a ton of them. For a couple of years when I had time I would open a PDF file, figure out a way to copy the _content_ of the PDF into OneNote and then delete the PDF. Needless to say it is very time consuming. My colleagues at work all raved about EN and said PDFs are very easily dumped into the system. What I have discovered is that EN is saving them as attachments when I import them into my account, which is not what I was hoping to accomplish with this tool. Here's what I want to do: 1. Export _contents_ of PDF _into_ EN notebook as a page IN the notebook - Not as an attachment! NEVER see the PDF again. I don't need any of the special markup or formatting there, just the content. 2. Delete PDF from hard drive. Is what I want possible? Thanks!
  25. Hi all, I am a premium user of 2 years now, who uses EN to organize 7 small businesses, and am just over 10k notes deep at the moment. This system is wonderful for our purposes, we can build 15 houses at once with great document control. Now I'm having an issue in that none of the new invoices are showing up. I scan them as always, and the IT guy who set up our system used appriver as the email service. Anyway, dozens of invoices are piling up and I need to find out what my issue is. Can anyone help? Thank you Gary
