When using the Google Drive integration for Mac OSX it would make way more sense for the attachment to link to the local copy of the drive file using OSX's file URL scheme. In that case, if you're offline then the Google Drive links would still function. Also, it's just more OSX-like. And there's the advantage that the file will open with the user's preferred app. Some files may even be unreadable by Google Drive. Please consider adding this as a feature. I really appreciate what you guys are doing with the Google Drive integration, but I think it could be better and right now it's not quite as awesome as it could be. ^^
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.
I was wondering if anybody else had noticed this issue: when I am searching for a bit of text among my notes (using the search field at the upper right corner), I get the results back where the found bit of text is highlighted by Evernote (by overlaying everything else with a grey semitransparent layer) to help my eyes find the hits. Good idea! The problem is just that the highlighting openings in the mask (i.e., the open spaces in the gray semitransparent layer) are not highlighting the found bit of text, but are offset by up to about 1 cm (half an inch) - see the attached screenshot where I looked for the word "test" - all highlighting windows are about 1 cm BELOW the found instances of "test". Any idea where this problem stems from? Is it a local problem or is it a bug? Any pointers are appreciated! Thanks! -J.P.
