  1. I would like to suggest the ability to take all of my ideas and be able to display them in a mind map form. This would greatly improve the usability for Evernote and I would certainly pay a premium for this function if it were to be developed. Evernote currently seems to be stuck in time and not advancing forward in terms of creative functionality. Since the current market for a quality mind map application is limited or over-priced, Evernote has an excellent opportunity to gain ground in this area and hence make it an even more powerful tool. I would recommend looking at an app called Novamind or Mindjet for design hints. The mind map should have a basic style. The problem with a lot of the current mind mapping tools is that they go spinning out of control with colors and photos and they lose their professional feel. Since we do business to business web and UI design, and I am a mind map user, I would be happy to help with advise along these lines. thanks

    Tiles

    I recently saw a blog where the person had their Evernote notes organized in tiles. I cannot figure out how to do that....
  3. Is there a workaround to getting a tag list? Is using SQL on a copy of the .exb file possible? I've noticed a number of posts on the forum about obtaining a tag list. They seem to dwell on 1) you cannot export or print a tag list in EN and/or 2) it would be a nice feature to have and will you please make it immediately or yesterday. It appears that none of these posts has yielded a definitive answer about a workaround. I have about 3,000 tags. That number is rapidly growing. I access EN two ways: EN for Windows and online in Chrome. I curate the tags in a hierarchy. I am aware that the prevailing consensus seems to be that tags are a superior way to organize one's EN content than notebooks, at least beyond some threshold volume of notes. But it has become tough to organize tags. My tags and their hierarchy are in continual flux as I add notes. I have about 35,000 notes. I continue to add tags and to delete and rearrange them. I am experimenting with the use of "special characters," ie., punctuation characters, to establish various categories. By "curation" I mean inspecting how the tags are organized (naming conventions and hierarchical arrangement) to be sure there is internal consistency. Part of the difficulty in doing so is that: a) there are so many; I can only see a small subset of them at a time; c) lacking an overview, I tend to have several curation and re-organization efforts going on concurrently and/or only partially implemented. d) these curation and re-organization efforts can be in conflict. The whole effort has become analogous to examining an entire landscape sequentially by examining parts of it through the narrow aperture of a drinking straw. But examining things sequentially can never replace simultaneous examination. I want to see all the tags. I need an overview, and to see their hierarchical organization at a glance. I am aware that there is no feature in EN to either print or export tags. Can I extract the tags using SQL? Doing so would not change the actual working file. I could use a copy of my .exb file (Windows platform), perhaps renaming it to a .db, and obtain from that renamed file a list of all of my tags. I recognize it is not good to go into the original backend database file with SQL tools. I would never touch that. It would be helpful to get even just a tag list, regardless of the hierarchical level of each tag. Getting the tags in their hierarchy would be good, though it's not strictly necessary. If you believe that it is infeasible to access the tags in a read-only manner via SQL, please let me know if you are aware of some other option. For example, alternately, is there some third-party software, perhaps analogous to VB for Office, or some macro-like utility of some kind, that would enable me to copy the tags successively, whether from within EN for Windows or EN in my browser, and paste them into MS Word? I am confident that it will be infinitely easier to manage them, once I have them in a word-processing document. I will be able to see the tags and their hierarchical position all at once rapidly, to grok relationships among them, disparities; similar, duplicative labels, etc. Changes to them in a Word doc can then be easily made in the original EN file. I would welcome any suggestions. That said, I do not imagine it would be helpful to question, why do you have so many tags? If you are thinking in those terms, please realize that you may be using EN for entirely different purposes and/or not have as much content. I have about 35,000 notes. Consider that the interrelationships among notes increase enormously as you add new topical areas. I want to track these with the tagging system. Nor do I imagine it would be helpful to ask, how can you use so many notes? Consider that, for the value that I wish to create, I do not need to use them all. Nor is it possible at the moment that I clip them to determine either exactly how I might use them or the likelihood that I will do so. Please realize that the process of capture with EN is often done intuitively, rather than with extensive planning aforethought. In that respect, EN is (or should be) not only a way of managing information. It is also (or should be) a way of managing how to allocate one's limited attention. Likewise, scrolling through a very lengthy tag list in EN for Windows does not support human cognitive strengths and inherent limitations.
  4. Hi, I really enjoy the work of the developers and the possibilities that the Evernote offer as a product. The only thing I would like to have more is to have a multiple number of reminders per one notification. As a student I sometimes have seminars at a list of different dates, and I have to be aware of them every time. I would find it much simpler to create one note of the seminar and attach to it the dates, and the array of reminders, rather then creating a special notebook, and filling it with a dozen of notes just in order to have the reminders among the other 5-6 important notes containing information. I would really appreciate it if someone would suggest me how to do this if it is possible, or otherwise if this would be implemented in one of the next updates. Keep what you are doing guys cause you are doing it right, it is by far the most advanced app of note taking and the most practical one. Thank you for your work! Have a nice day!
  5. I really like the reminders functionality, and I love how we can set our own user orders to the list within the notes panel. But I wish we had more control organising them. For instance - when we select multiple reminders either with the SHIFT or CMD key, can we drag all those selected reminders as a unit within the list to rearrange their order? Right now, you can drag single notes and re-arrange their order. But when you select more than one, the ability to shift their order goes away. Right now I find myself having to drag one reminder at a time to rearrange my list, which can be tedious if you make dozens of reminders and have them loosely arranged within the same notebook. Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi everyone, I'm a new user of Evernote premium, so I'm not familiar with every feature that EN gives. I would really appreciate some suggestions from the more experienced users about a problem. Sometimes you find multi part articles on the web, or you find articles that you want to keep together because they are strictly related. The simplest way to do this would be to create a notebook but in my opinion it doesn't make much sense to create notebooks with just a few notes inside. Tagging the notes aith a special tag wouldn't make much sense either for just a few notes. Since I find frequently this kind of articles I'd like to find an efficient way to keep them together and find them.
  7. Okay, I'm finally at the end of my Master's program and can get back to knitting and organizing my life. I just realized I have a ton of yarn. Most of it left over from projects or parts of never-completed projects inherited from my mom. Any thoughts on the best way to start organizing? I hate buying new yarn for projects when I already have a ton of really nice yarn, but I never remember what I have available. Some of it still has labels, but not all (which means weight, type and quantity are up in the air!). I like to add this to Evernote but I'm not sure what the best way will be. Anyone manage their stash in Evernote have tips to share?
  8. The more I use Evernote, the less I seem to need reminders and updates from other people. It encourages me to be self-sufficient to the point where I actually find myself socializing less. Gathering data from meetings, e-mails and websites is so automatic and simple! But I tend to focus on the details—not the people. I was surprised by this article: http://next.inman.co...-relationships/. It claims there is an advantage to using Evernote for relationship development, and offers a plan, too. The author states: I don't know if I will go as far as the author has in terms of developing a set template for my relationships. But I do think I might start noting my Skype and Gmail chats more frequently, so I can review them for a better rapport with online contacts. Just dedicating a Notebook to a particular person seems exciting. It could show you things about yourself, your own interests, and your own intentions in the relationship. Do you use Evernote to develop your personal or professional relationships? Share your tips and experiences.
  9. Let's say you have a lot of notes with some tag and want to further organize them by using note links to make an overview note, similar to a table of contents. And you would group notes there in any way you like and etc. Let's ignore the fact that you can't do it on iPad at all. (except using remote desktop app) This is what even the blog posts says about note links "Create a table of contents for a selection of notes. Whether you’re working on a study guide or planning your wedding, you can use Note Links to get ahead of the game. Create a new note and add Note Links for things like Notes: October, Notes: December, etc. or “Guest List,” “Flowers,” “Vendor Numbers.”" So far so good. You have made this overview note with note links and organized it all there really nicely. Now what you have basically is a tag which has an overview note with all its notes organized there and the notes themselves. It's all in a flat list but you have to look only at the overview note because all notes are there in the form of note links and are organized in categories and subcategories and what not. But then eventually you added some notes to this tag. And you didn't think about this overview note at the time because it was out of sight. Then after some time you go back to review notes with this tag. You see lots of notes in a flat list and also an overview/table of contents note with most but NOT all notes listed there. And there is no way to really check what's there and what's not. It's not apparently noticeable. So things get missed. And you don't even know. This basically means you have to organize notes in 2 separate places. One workaround I can think of is using an additional tag for each tag to hide notes which are already organized in some sort of overview note. For example you have tag "evernote" and then also an additional tag "evernote-organized as note links/organized in table of contents" or something. Whenever you add notes as note links to an overview/table of contents note for this tag you also tag them as "evernote-organized as note links". Then after a while you could go back to this "evernote" tag and do a search for -tag:"evernote-organized as note links" to hide all notes which are already organized in some sort of overview/table of contents note. This would make it easy to see if there are any new and "unorganized" notes in this tag which are missing from an overview/table of contents note. Basicaly this would pretty much double your amount of tags which is quite an incovenient workaround. Hopefully you understand what I mean... This is one and only reason I'm going to avoid using note links for "table of cntents" kind of notes which would have been useful otherwise... Any ideas?
