  1. Am I the only only that thinks the EN search function needs considerable work? I think this new collaboration with Google should also involve similar search techniques. I was extremely frustrated when trying to search for anything more than one word in multiple PDF attachments in one note. I really want to see features that allow me to search for phrases and modify my search criteria — just like Google! http://www.lifehack.org/articles/technology/20-tips-use-google-search-efficiently.html if there are better was to search for phrases or sentences within Evernote, I haven't come across it and it's not readily apparent to everyone.
  2. Recently I was trying to search for some exact phrases somewhere in my 8000 notes -- a phrase that starts with general words is fine (i can find notes that have the phrase "object oriented" by just searching "object oriented"), but if the phrase starts with a preposition, like, "in the bank", or "the bank", it totally fails. Any tips for full-text searching for phrases that have prepositions? Best, Samantha Have looked at these threads and seems there's nothing, but maybe a new fix was created?
  3. I think it would be great to have the ability to exclude specific notebooks from search strings. I realise tags can be excluded but this is only partially helpful.
  4. Code block is nice. But it's monochromatic, this makes it feel like reading code in the 1990s (that's what my Dad said). Please Evernote team add syntax highlighting in the code block. This should not be hard to do.
  5. I'm a relatively new user to Evernote. I had originally been using the Notebooks and Stacks to separate different tasks and groupings, but started to shift towards using tags and shortcut searches. One search that I have used on the Windows desktop app is searching for specific tags and filtering out anything that has a future reminder date (after today). This seems to work great on the desktop applications, but I noticed a difference when I look at the same shortcut on the iphone app. Here is the syntax: tag:"@Home" tag:"Next Action" -remindertime:day+1 As I mentioned, this seems to work great on my desktop, but on the iphone app this same shortcut only shows tasks with reminders previous to today and reminders from today. Doesn't show anything that DOESN'T have a reminder... Any recommendations?? Thank you!
  6. Hi, I'm picking up EverNote very quickly but have come unstuck in the end. The issue I have run into is the limitations of only being able to use ANY or AND logic but NOT a mix of the two (AND/OR). This is causing me problems such as being forced to use ANY logic which is pulling in unrelated notes from the ENTIRE database. An example of this occurring is when I search in all notebooks for: intitle:"_Glossary" any: tag:"fld-Information Science" tag:"fld-Statistics" tag:"fld-Programming" tag:"needs info" You can see that the intuitive goal is to see all my glossary notes that "need info" within the specified fields, however I will literally get every note in the ENTIRE evernote database tagged with all the "field names" or "needs info" tag. TLDR: I really require, in all-notebooks: ( intitle:this AND tag:that ) with tags x OR y OR z Does anyone have any advice, thoughts, workarounds? It's a shame because I designed my entire structure before recognizing the lack of search logic...woops!
  7. Hello all! Syntax recognition and formatting for common languages (C++, Java, Javascript, Python, PHP) could be an incredible feature in Evernote, what do you think?
  8. I tend to write a lot of technical notes in evernote, and that also includes blocks of code, and it would be amazing to have a button to toggle a code block with automatic syntax highlighting.
  9. I am trying to create a search that shows my open reminders with notes with one of two words in the title. My search starts with this: reminderOrder:* -reminderDoneTime:* I can make it work when I add intitle:term1, but I cannot get it to work when I want to add the option for term2. I tried this but no go. reminderOrder:* -reminderDoneTime:* any: intitle:term1 intitle:term2 Can anyone help?
  10. I have several large MS Word documents that I had been using as trading journals. Each document consists of a single table. Each row in the table consists of a note. Each note contains text which may be formatted and may contain images. I would like to convert each row to an Evernote note (including both text and images). I have in mind to do this with a VBA macro. After having placed a row in the Windows clipboard, I can create a new note with the following: Call Shell(strEvernoteExe & _ " /Task:PasteClipboard ", 1) How do I specify the note title? The creation date (from the original note)? Tag? Any advice will be appreciated.
  11. Ok, maybe the Apple thing will throw off some of you, but my point is that simple tasks such as creating a "saved search" should NOT require me to look it up. I had to go to the website and knowledge base. Even the apps "Help" couldn't provide an answer. I've been using Evernote for a long time, years. This year I've really been dedicated to going paperless, and so I'm beginning to delve deeper into Evernote, and use it more. Now I see why I haven't been using it more. It is counter intuitive. I really think Evernote should hire a novel team to try the app as beginners and give feedback. After spending 4 hours today, doing what shouldn't have taken that long, because simple things like saving a search weren't readily available. Seriously? There should be a simple "save search" button in the Search Box. Instead, I'm instructed to go to File>Find>Save Search. REALLY!!!! Who in their right minds would think to go to File first of all, and then "FIND?" I just searched, I know what I found. And then Save search. That menu isn't even clear that it is saving your current search. It was so counter intuitive, I had to look it up AGAIN, the next time I wanted to do it. COME ON!!! Apple products, that's just what I use, anticipate what I want to do. Sometimes to the creepy point, as in when I walk into a Walgreen's it pulls up my loyalty card. But more usefully, it thinks ahead and provides simple solutions or options that appear readily available. Evernote is a great idea. Actually a stellar idea. But unless you are a programmer, accomplishing more than just creating a note, can be...frustrating, extremely frustration when all you want to do is...SAVE A SEARCH!!! I think if your budget is tight, you should spend less on advertising and selling the program as easy, and actually make it easy. Then, it will sell itself. Proud Premium Member, for now.
  12. We are a web agency and we would like to collect all of our (code)ideas in evernote. Do you plan to integrate syntax highlighting in evernote business? That would be awesome!
  13. Hi Evernote team, I love that you can forward emails to Evernote to create new notes, and I love that you can set tags from the subject line with '#' and '@' modifiers. I have a problem because I have some important tags with special characters (e.g., "@Home"). People inspired by thesecretweapon.org will probably have the same "@<location>" tags set up. Tags with '@' or '#' characters are currently ignored (as the support page does state). Would it be possible to amend the email subject line parsing to allow for direct quotations of tags? For example, the email subject line "My email subject line text @MyNotebook #"@Home" #tag2 #tag3" would create a note titled "My email subject line" in notebook "MyNotebook" with tags "@Home", "tag2", and "tag3". Or maybe treat everything as text after the first @ or # until the next space character? So the email subject line "My subject line text #@Home" would make a note with the tag "@Home". Thanks for making a great product, Brian
  14. I am wanting to search for notes created in certain months, but not certain years. For example, all notes created in July of any year. Currently, the only way I can figure out how to do this is "Created:20090701 -created:20090731" view the results, change the year in the search, and repeat, but this is a lengthy process since I've edited the creation dates to go back over a decade. I have memories archived and am basically trying to search to see what "anniversaries" are coming up in the month.
  15. Issue: Evernote modifies what you type in the Search box to effectively add an asterisk, which changes the scope of the search from an "exact match" of your term to "starts with". The Evernote Search Grammar states that whatever string is provided to the Search engine requires an exact match. At some unknown, unannounced, time in the past, Evernote changed the behavior of how all EN Clients behave to make what you type to mean "starts with". I understand the benefit of this for some use cases. However, it has some unintended consequences. We are now unable to search for an exact match. The more Notes you have, the bigger the impact this will have on you. For example, I you want to find notes that contain a persons name, say, "Gene", then you would type into the Search Box: geneUnfortunately this finds notes with any word that begins with "gene": general generation generator genetics etc So, your search may return many more Notes than you expect, making it harder to find the one (or the few) you are looking for. This is greatly compounded by the presence of PDF attachments in your notes. PDF files can be hundreds of pages, with thousands, even tens of thousands of words. But, you can't easily see all of these PDF pages. So, you don't know if just "gene" was found somewhere, or if it is a false positive of words that start with "gene". Those of us that have been using computers for years have learned (been taught by experience) that when you are searching for a term, you need to ADD an "*" to the end of the term to match all terms that start with what you type. In my opinion it is easy enough to type one character * when you want to extend the scope from an exact match to starts with. The current behavior is confusing and inconsistent. When you enter an operator in the search box, then it looks ONLY for an exact match. For example, if I typed "tag:gene" then it would find ONLY those Notes with a tag of exactly "gene". It would be much simpler to remember one rule for all cases: exact match unless you add an * So, I would like to request that Evernote change the EN client behavior to be an "exact match" unless the user types an asterisk at the end of the term.
  16. Feature Request: Provide new Search Grammar/Syntax to search on Location The last update for EN iOS (ver 4.1.8) adds a new feature for Auto-Title (or Predictive Title) which is based on the Location: Note from <location address> in <location city> Example: Note from 123 Main Street in San Francisco This made me realize that we don't currently have a way to search for this type of Location data. Problems with Current Search Search grammar is ONLY for Latitude and Longitude EN iOS displays "Location" as <city>, <state> EN iOS also gets the address from somewhere, but is only displayed in the Auto-Title [*]EN Mac displays "Location" as <county>, <state>, <country> [*]So while the Location is displayed as text (inconsistent across EN clients), the Search is for Long/Lat [*]But I have NO way to get the Long/Lat for a Note Most of the time searching for Long/Lat is too specific and hard to remember, even if I could get the data from EN. Would like to search for fields like <Street>, <city>, <state>, <zip>, <country> Are these Location metadata fields stored (or could they be stored) somewhere in Evernote so we could search on them? Here are some thoughts/ideas on how this might work -- just to get the discussion going: Make the Location field be the full text of Street Address, City, State, Zip, Country Create Location subfields for each of the above Search Examples: Location:CA <=== finds all notes that have "CA" as a word in Location State:CA <=== finds all notes where the State subfield is "CA" State:CA -City:"San Francisco" <=== finds all notes in State "CA" but EXCLUDES "San Francisco" City:"San Francisco" Street:Market <=== finds all notes in San Francisco on Market street
