Hi Folks, As someone involved in academic research, I depend on Evernote heavily for note-taking and keeping detailed records of scientific experiments. I have noted that several times, while I am writing some experimental protocol, I need to use a calculator. I use chrome/ OSX calculator. Wouldn't it be great to have a calculator in the Evernote app? Thanks!
Hi to everyone, First I'm sorry about my english, I'm French. I'm using Evernote for about 2 years when I was in med school (switched this year to biology). In 2 years my workflow has changed many times because I want to go totally paperless. In some classes there are some math and chemical formulas and I like to type them instead of using a sheet of paper when this is not exceding a certain size. But I'm a bit perfectionist and I like to have beautiful formulas but writing them easily and in plain text. So here's my workflow : I'm using Emacs org-mode (which is similar to Markdown in term of markup language) and write my formulas in LaTeX. Org-mode can export the org file into multiple formats, like HTML, PDF or even ODT. So when I have a new lesson : I create a new org file that I put into a new Evernote note. I edit this file in Emacs, and changes are saved directly into Evernote. I write misc notes inside that Evernote note. At the end of each course I export it in PDF then put it in my note, so it's easily searchable. I put other docs, like lecture slides and scanned diagrams, into separate notes, then put links into the first one.I use this method too to write my WordPress blog articles and by exporting the org file in HTML... This method is convenient because the writing process during lecture is very, very fast, and produces great looking PDF with beautiful formulas. But it lacks of flexibility because to make my edits to the note searchable in Evernote I have to edit the org file, then export to PDF, then put it into Evernote. So I only use this method for lecture notes; for small notes I type them diretly into Evernote. Why I don't use Pandoc ? Pandoc is great but, on Windows, there is no editor that can export a file using it, and I don't want to use cmd every time I have to export a file. Also there's a pandoc-mode on Emacs but it doesn't like Windows paths... I hope my workflow will be helpful and I'd love to share thoughts with you on this topic.
So this has been rattling around in my head for a long while now, and if I've thought of it, I'm sure somebody smarter has thought of it first, but I couldn't find more than a few dissatisfied grumblings here and there, some of which are my own. We've got Evernote versions for food, for blogging, for friends, for drawing, for many things, but there isn't a really good note-taking solution aimed squarely at the scientists, engineers, tradespeople, technicians and students of the sciences. There are programs that go halfway, even those that do a decent job, but I've yet to find one built with our specific needs in mind, and what I'd like to do is formalize ideas for such a program and put them somewhere centralized -- a wish-list for a dream version of the program, due out approximately never. Add your suggestions! EvernoteTechnical Wish List 1) More robust text input. This is a big one for me, as I'm taking notes for my EET program at the moment, and keep running into situations where I just wish I could do what I wanted to with Evernote, but the program doesn't do that. In particular: Superscript/Subscript (Baseline changes) in the OS clients. I use these all day long, all the time, and when I want to enter one, I have to save my note, sync it, log into the website, click the little subscript button and click back out again. It'd be so much better just to click the button in the program. Equation Editor or TeX support. This is sort of rolled into the one above, but would be a real boon to those of us writing formulas and such as part of our daily work. 2) Citation Support. APA/MLA/Turabian, etc. The ability to carry your notebook or iPhone into a library and take down information about sources for later reference or inclusion in a bibliography would be invaluable to me. We don't need EndNote-style full freight citation and bibliography generation, just a way to take down info in a more organized fashion. 3) Wolfram Integration. This is sort of a far-off dreamland idea, but roundtripping information to/from Alpha would be awesome. It'd offload a lot of the hardcore scientific stuff on a company who specializes in doing that as well as driving them traffic and exposure. What else've you all got?
Greetings, I teach science in a small rural high school (grades 7-12 in one building). Last year I used Google Docs as collaborative (small group) digital science notebooks. There are many features that I like about Docs, particularly the commenting feature. However, I do not have a 1:1 classroom and depsite my efforts to promote kids working together, some participated little in their groups. I wanted a way to better get kids involved individually, and thought if I included kids using thier own devices, along with those at school, I could make this more likely. The problem? The new Google Drive is read only on iOS mobile devices, which many of my kids own. So....knowing Evernote works on everything, I thought it might be a good alternative. I am one of those who downloaded Evernote at a colleagues's suggestion to my smart phone and never used it. I have started to play with it and am reaearching the web, so I have the basics, but I would like suggestions from those who may have used it more in this capacity or something similar. I am also concerned about the ability to do comment easily on student work, as they would be using the free version. Thank you!
