I am not happy with search. It is a very powerful tool but loses a lot when the following are treated equally. ☑test ... same results as test or ... #test..... I've found this to be true on the following platforms: desktop, web, iPad. This is true of almost all extended characters or punctuation. I use tags extensively but there are times I want to tag an item without using a tag (I don't want 1000's of tags to organize or sort). I tried using various characters but Evernote search ignores them. So I cannot set up some special collection like ☑photography. I can do this in OneNote. In Evernote, if I search on ☑photography, I get everything with photography versus a few that I want to see. Yes, I could use tags but I already have a tag system set up to leverage GTD and some general reference categories. I effectively am looking for a separate sub-tag or category system. This will keep me from being overwhelmed in tags. The more I use Evernote the more I find this a major problem. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to find something in thousands of notes that you know is there, but you have to look at 100's instead of maybe 10 or 12. Any suggestions? Is there a list of special characters I could use (I only need maybe 3-6)? Is this something that is planned to be changed in future releases?
At one time I was marking portion of text in a note with symbols. I was able (I think) to search for those symbols. However, I no longer can. For example, I'd like to mark unresolved questions with a double question mark (i.e., "??"), then use a saved search to retrive these items. Or, mark a follow-up item with a double ampersat symbol (i.e., "@@"). Is this possible? Thanks.
Hi! I just started using Evernote on my iPad in school and noticed two shortcomings that should be relatively easy to fix. The first one is drawing inside of Evernote. So I was i chemistry class taking notes, when the teacher drew some models on the whiteboard. I wanted to draw these simple models in Evernote with my finger, in case I need to know them later. I found no easy way to do this. First I switched over to Skitch and drew the model, then I exported it into Evernote, but once there I found no easy way of inserting it in the note I was working on. I eventually solved it by going back into Skitch and exporting the drawings to my camera roll, then importing them to my note from there. Not a very good solution. It takes way too much time and you risk to miss writing down important stuff. I would like to see a button or something that you can tap on, they you get a drawing board where you can draw whatever you want, which will then be inserted at the cursor. It should also be possible to move, cut, and paste your drawing inside of Evernote. The second one is inserting special characters So after chemistry I went to physics. There I needed to insert characters for delta and density, as well as some superscript numbers. I found no way to do that within Evernote. I ended up waiting until I got home, and then I launched Evernote on my Mac, and had to go through all my notes and insert these characters. Again, this takes time. Time that you need to study. The simple solution would be to add a button that brings upp a popup menu, where you can choose from a bunch of characters (possibly sorted in categories), and the ability to favorite characters for easy access would be very much appreciated. I hope this is something the Evernote team would like to improve on, because Evernote is just awesome in school other than this. I have my notes both in my iPad, my phone and my computer, so even if I forget my iPad at home I can read my notes on my (Android) phone.
Hello, I use Evernote in Window Vista and Windows 7 quite a bit. I often need to insert special characters but never try, because the facility doesn't seem to be there. Isn't it time we had a shortcut in the toolbar? Click icon in toolbar and dialog pops up showing most common special characters. Surely not such a tall order, technically? Thanks Guy
