Hello fellow enthusiasts! I am a pretty heavy Evernote user. A while back I scanned every paper doc I had. Next I really got into the digital habit and except when I need to make handwritten notes (my tablet is not fast enough to use it for note-taking but I have the Samsung Note S on my wishlist!) I am paperless and use evernote for almost all my digital information keeping. I also am an artist and I collect vast amounts of information, pictures, clips, etc. In addition to that I'm a frick'n nerd and I've got things uber organized. I'm a premium user (not business) also. So the reason I am posting this is for some new ideas. I want to see what other people come up with for my organizational issue that I'm currently experiencing. I use Evernote for my personal life, personal projects, art projects, research, and for work. I have 2300 notes and they are all content that I use or plan to use at some point so I am very careful about tagging and notebook organization. My problem mainly is that I really need another level in the notebook tree. It would be SO perfect for me if there were Bookshelves, Notebook stacks, Notebooks, and Notes. Wow, that would make everything so much better. But there isn't and so I am trying to find my way around this. Can you help? Example: To-Do notebook stack - To-Research notebook In here, I have individual notes of things I want to research. I also have notes of lists of things I want to research. Ideally it would be: To-Do bookshelf - To-Research notebook stack - Tools notebook - individual notes Right now the tools notes are all mixed in with the artists and with the electronics and with the php code I want to go over, etc etc. I honestly just don't know what the most efficient / user friendly method of organization for this is. I have ideas. For instance tag with the subject, but I feel like tagging with the subject will get confusing. Partly because I could have dozens of subjects but also because when web clipping I'd have to already know the tag, there is no drop down menu. What if I can't remember the exact tag I've used? When I am clipping and tagging with topics I type and suggestions come up and if I miss one it's not a big deal but if I am using tags to specifically separate notes as an impromptu subject divider (in keeping with the notebook analogy) I need to use the correct exact one and I honestly can't remember stuff like that. Are there any features I'm unaware of that could help me? Has anyone found an elegant solution to only having this many levels? I feel like if I used Evernote only for art, or only for personal stuff or only for work it would be fine but because I need to definitively separate that content there are more limits in what I can do. In order to not waste a level I have made my stacks general and then I specialize inside. That is, I do not have 3 stacks (Art, Personal, Work), instead I have stacks like Projects and then inside there are 5 project notebooks, some personal, some art). I also have To-Do stack, Paperless Life stack, etc.
