Hello Evernote community! This post will be summarising a brief idea of a Progress bar/meter. The idea- I have an idea that most of you would probably already know about from the talk here. So as the title suggests, I am thinking of some sort of feature which allows the user to create a progress bar/meter. This progress bar/meter could be able to be updated by the single click of a button, or should be configurable (e.g. Customising the style of the bar, How much of the bar turns green each time the button is clicked, etc...). Reasons for this feature to be added- Having the option to include a progress bar/meter allows users to monitor their progress of a variety of tasks or goals. This bar can be helpful to those who wants a quick, visual and brief summary (As discussed in the video mentioned here) of their task quickly. The bar would be very aesthetically pleasing, especially to those who enjoy having diagrams and images instead of words, numbers, or text. The bar would also be a very nice feature to those who just want to monitor their goals, whether it is a long or a short term goal. And that's about all I have to say! If any one from the Evernote team does read, or reply to this suggestion, I'd hope you would consider adding this feature into Evernote. Thank you!
PeterNorman posted a topic in Mac ArchivesHello! Is there a method or option for disabling the Heads-Up-Display type progress of a web clip being synced from Safari on Mac OS X? Its NOT the growl notification - those are controlled via the Growl System Preference Pane. When the progress of the web clip completes, the Heads-Up-Display changes to "Clipped WebPageName": View Edit Close. I would like that clipping message to disappear rather than stay on-screen. Has anyone worked out whether or not this is possible? If so, how is it done? If not, can we please have a preference setting for disabling it or configuring it to disappear after a second or two? Thanks! peter
krutsch posted a topic in Mac ArchivesQuick feedback: Please, PLEASE, PLEASE... remove the progress bar (i.e. the little barber pole) from the lower-left corner on the new Mac UI. Every time Evernote syncs, the little spinning, horizontal barber pole catches my eye while I am writing in the app. Because it's located at the bottom of the app, thus being close to the Mac Finder Dock, I always think it's a bouncing Dock icon. Really, it stops my train of thought when this happens and I'm ready to place a piece of tape over a portion of my monitor to block this. As a general UI rule, you don't distract users with stuff like animated progress bars unless the operation is modal (e.g. a pop-up dialog) or something is going wrong with the process. Either remove it completely (since it's not really meaningful during normal operation) or use something more subtle, like a 'disabled' control with a foreground close to the background in color and with a smooth progress bar (not the spinning blue and white barber pole that really indicates that the developer has no idea how long this will take). Sorry, I'm done ranting now... :-)
