  1. A wish list, I guess. I clip a lot of stories, articles, reviews – for research, or the basis for further work. This involves subsequent organization into overlapping and constantly developing areas of interest. I find myself wanting to be able to do two things: 1. Highlight and annotate text in notes. I know you can do this with pdfs, but I wish I could highlight text selections or add comments to things in notes – much in the way I might use a highlighter in a physical book or notebook, or scribble some comment in the margin. 2. Add the same new tag to multiple notes. My areas of interest overlap. I notice a connection between tag A and tag B. They're separate things, but there's an overarching relationship, so I want to add a tag C. Instead of opening all the notes with tag and tag B singly, and adding the new tag to each of them, I wish I could do this with a single action. Or two actions. Search for notes with tag A, add tag C to every note on the whole list of results. Same with tag B.
  2. Chrome Auto tagging

    Notes I create using web clipper in chrome have a tag already assigned to them. I want to eliminate this apparent "auto tagging." This started a week ago. I discovered one forum post on this issue that was closed though contained a link to a supposed solution, but that turned out to be simply the support page. Searching endlessly produced no answer, though I noticed requests for having the ability to auto tag notes. Well, it seems that EN already has it, but I can't figure out where to turn it off. Ideas welcome.
  3. Would like to extend your fast note process. With a shortcut a single windows which displays 1 line for writing a note, in which you can use # for giving this note the right notebook and + for giving the note the right tags and ^ for setting a reminder on the right date. After you pressed # or + an autocompletion let you easily find the right notebooks and tags. So, a possible one-line command would look like this: #mynotebook +evernote +forum +request ^06-29 Write a note in the evernote forum to get the feature for 1-line notes No, its not my idea. I am using the tool of doit.im besides evernote, because of this fast and easy 1-line note feature. Do u like it as well?
  4. Say I highlight text blue in multiple notes as a form of tagging text down in notes, does there exist a third-party tool that will let me see all the text from multiple notes (displaying like it's all in a new note) highlighted with that color?
  5. Hi, Is there a way to assing tags to phrases, sentences or paragraphs within clipped or copied content and then display the tagged bits according to the assigned tags? I mean a similar feature to what qualitative data analysis software does. Perhaps via some sort of extension? Thank you
  6. I'd be interested in a feature that would allow me to search tagged notes using a wildcard *before* the search key, not only after. Right now, I'm only able to use a wildcard to search for notes tagged like "science.*", which would return notes tagged with "science.immunology, science.pharmacology" etc. Why not also enable searches for "*.immunology"?
  7. Hello, Wouldn't it be great if Evernote could recognise bookmarks and clippings you've already tagged and made notes on?! Also via the Firefox addon button - let's say I'm on a webpage and I've added it as a bookmark to Evernote - but I've forgotten to add a few extra notes after viewing the rest of the webpage. Now, if I click the Firefox button again, it won't recognise that I've already clipped/tagged it and I can't see what I just entered, and can't make any quick amendments to it. So so frustrating... When I click the add-on again, I'd like to be able to make a few more additional notes real quickly, instead of having to go into Evernote and find the note, to make additional notes on that clipping. What else is possible..?! Thanks!
  8. I have some notes that contain (for example) only a PDF file. Is there a way to find only these notes and add the tag "PDF" to all of them (using f.e. the desktop version of Evernote on Windows or MacOSX) I would also like to do the same with notes that contain a .jpeg, .png or .gif file. Besides that I think It'll be great to find all notes that contain a URL in the metadata, this would allow users to add a tag based on the source of a note that was created with the webclipper by clipping a file from a certain domain (f.e. a jpeg file from the facebook CDN "fbcdn" or a file from Twitter's CDN aka "twimg") Suggestions? TYIA!

    Great iPad upgrade recently. Finaly it is posible to combine a normal text search with multible tag searching on the ipad after taking it away a couple of years ago. This is also possible on the windows version. Nou after manny years of asking I ask it again Please make this also possible on the Mac version. Then the Mac version wil be mature and I don't need a window emulator on my Mac or use my iPad anymore.
  10. Platform: Windows client Let's say you have a tag which contains multiple tags, like this: tagA - tag1 - tag2 - tag3 And then you select tagA. You will see all of the notes which are tagged with tagA as well as tag1, tag2, and tag3. Now, having selected tagA, you create a new note. This will create a new note and automatically tag it with not only tagA, but also tag1, tag2, and tag3. I have to delete all of the unwanted sub-tags of tagA ... This doesn't make sense to me. I think it would make more sense if when you have tagA selected, and create a new note, it is automatically assigned with ONLY tagA, not any of the child tags.
  11. Currently, there does not seem to be a way to undo a bulk tag change. For example, if I have selected multiple notes, I am able to change the tags for those notes in bulk at the bottom of the window (in the desktop client). If I, say, delete a tag for all of the notes, hitting Undo does not reinstate that tag for all of those notes. Instead, Undo just undoes something else. So, it seems that bulk edits to note tags do not register in the undo / redo history. The lack of undo has unfortunately led to some frustration. One time, I was viewing a bunch of notes by a tag. Say I was viewing by a tag which we'll call "tag1" (I click on "tag1" in the tag list). In the notes list I see: Note 1 (tag1) Note 2 (tag1) Note 3 (tag1) Note 4 (tag1) Now, let's say I choose Note 3 and Note 4, and add "tag2". But I change my mind, and delete "tag2" but then also mistakenly hit backspace one too many times and also delete "tag1". Now Note 3 and Note 4 are untagged ... and I have to go find them again. In the case of two notes, no problem. But when you're talking about a hundred, you can see the problem. The problem would be solved easily if bulk tag edits were part of the undo / redo history. This is probably a rare situation but I think because the potential for creating a mess is very big, I think it's important. Thanks for a great product!
  12. I started to rely heavily on tagging after seeing what good it could do. I had long refrained from tagging notes because I knew how unreliable syncing was when it came to tagging. I realized this 2-3 years ago. Now I'm back to tagging notes and see that the problem remains and hasn't been fixed. I see tens of tags not syncing in my account. Why does Evernote do nothing about it?? I don't even bother to ask customer support, because I know it won't solve any problems. Yet my curiosity remains. Why does Evernote not fix it? I'm a user from Korea. Is this particularly a regional issue? Then what is the Korea team doing about it? I've turned from an Evernote advocate to an advocate of not even starting Evernote because it's such a bug-laden elephant still. Why is Evernote complacent about its major bug with tagging? Can someone answer? I'm not complaining for the sake of complaining. I'm REALLY curious and I think I deserve an answer as a longtime premium member.
  13. Other Tagging & Alternatives to EN

    Is there any way to replace Evernote's awesome hierarchical tagging system on any of Evernote's alternatives? Now that Evernote has reduced their "seamless access on all devices" to "seamless access on 2 devices", I am thinking of switching to something else. The main thing I'd miss about Evernote is managing my learning. I tag every note with: Discipline. Some things are multidisciplinary. For example, my notes on the book "Thinking, Fast and Slow" are tagged with "Summaries", "Cognitive Biases", "Key Mental Models", and "Education - General". I can easily synthesize my learning across disciplines and sources by clicking on a single tag now. Dates at which I'm going to review the material to ensure I really master it for the long-run. I'm going to quiz myself on "Thinking, Fast and Slow" on all the dates I tagged the note with: a few times in July 2016, once in August 2016, December 2016, and once in 2017. Clicking on "July 2016" tells me everything I need to review this month. Super convenient! Is there any way to do this on any of Evernote's alternatives?
  14. Hi Evernoters, I'm a church-based family worker who has been using Evernote since 2008. I use it to store meeting notes, logs of pastoral visits, sermon notes. I also have a resource library notebook of scans, notes, and web clippings on work related topics that, at the time of writing, contains over 1,200 entries. Despite this, I have never gotten my head around how to best use tags. I dabbled in the past but I ended up deleting them all in favour of a prefixing methodology. For example, meetings note titles always follow this format: YYYY MM DD Meeting: [Person/Reason (eg. Staff)]. This is all fine and good for meetings, but for my resources library, it is a bit more complex. Notes on specific biblical books or passages use the following: # Book Ch: Verse (Eg. 01. Genesis 1:1-10). Whereas articles, scans and clippings have a topic prefix (eg. Parenting: [Article title]. Currently, I only have two tags: '.CurrentBook' & '.CurrentSermon'. Long story short, I am not sure if I have posted this in the right place, and I know I'm not your 'usual' Evernote user, but could someone please help me get to grips with tags so that I can make the most of the mountain of notes and resources that I am compiling. Moreover, the larger my library gets the more I can't help but get the feeling that I'm not making the most of Evernote by using tags to link similar notes across notebooks. So yeah, if anyone can help me get my head around how best to use tags I'd be extremely grateful! Thanks in advance. Have a great evening all. Liam
  15. [Solved] Merge Tag Groups

    I have two tag groups - ie each group contains quite a few individual tags - my objective was to merge the two groups I was moving tags via one-by-one drag 'n' drop (Ψ) from group A to group B, when I ran into some sort of limit. Once group B has ??? (about fiftyish I think) tags I can't move any more tags into the group... but I can add a tag to the group... but there's a Catch 22... not with the same name as a tag stranded in group B Evernote can be a real PITA at times with its arbitrary and often undocumented limits Can anyone suggest a solution - apart from switch to another product. Hopefully I can restore the database from backup, and continuing living with the two tag groups... until such time as I find a reliable way to merge tag groups or I find another product . BTW - the tags in question are only used on a local database - not that that ought have any relevance.
  16. I'm looking to subscribe to Premium and would like to know, beforehand, whether it will be possible for me to tag multiple notes at the same time? I only use, and have access, to Linux PCs and Android phones. I have not found a way to accomplish this with Evernote Web or the Android app; although I'm probably missing something. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  17. Hi all, I am trying to create a workflow whereby a user can add a reference to an acronym (eg. "EM" or "A") within a note, then be able to search all notes for a reference to that acronym. My issue is that the acronyms are very common characters, and if I just search for "A" I will return every note as a result. My thought was to prefix the acronym with a special character, such as "#" or "@", resulting in "@EM" or "#A". When I do a search for "#A", however, all notes with the letter "a" are still returned. I want to avoid relying on the user to type the acronym in as a Tag, since tags are free form, and the list of tags cannot be restricted. If the search feature is not possible, I will rely on automatically tagging the notes via an API call that searches the note body for the @EM or #A reference, then tags that note appropriately. I do not believe it is possible to auto-tag notes directly in the application after reading through past forum posts. Thanks for any help, James
  18. I use evernote for both general bookmarking but also research. When I clip a "simplified article" the clipper gives me the option to edit the title, tags, add a note and select the notebook. Why is this not universal for the other modes? For example, when clipping a "selection" from a page, I would like the option to put it into the right note book and add notes without having to find the note in Evernote after the fact. David
  19. Hello guys, I really love using scannable to be more productive everyday. This is my first time using this forum. I noticed that when you scan multiple business cards at once and upload the contacts to your evernote, every note has the same subject despite of the name written in the business card. When uploading just one of them, I get - as a subject of the new note created - exaclity the name of the contact. Is it possible to change this in configurations? I really need every business card to be a new single note in Evernote. Another point is tagging. Is it really impossible to tag directly from Scannable? Maybe you guys have more experience with the app and can help me in this matter. Looking forward to reading some comments! Thanks in advance!!
  20. UI Changes...

    I use Evernote almost daily to store things - I rarely use it to reference those things I have stored, I have just revisited the Evernote Web, and Touch and I need to say that Evernote in these formats has changed and not for the better. Gigantic icons that look like they've been designed for 3 year olds with reading difficulties, few options for view customization, and if there's a way to search for notes with multiple tags now, it's ENTIRELY un-intuitive. I'm really disappointed, I've been a premium member for 3 years and it's a shame to me that overzealous UXD people have changed Evernote for the worse. The Evernote UI used to make sense to me, 'simple' is not what I want - I want powerful. I don't need the software that contains the contents of my brain to feel like a picture book, I need it to have functionality. This goes for all incarnations of Evernote, but don't get me started on Windows Evernote Touch. Thankfully the Mac interface is still great - Evernote, please step up on the other interfaces, and revert back to what worked. If it aint broke...
  21. I am using the EN Business (now I guess it's called Premium?) desktop client for Mac. When I try to tag a note, I would like to be able to simply click in the tagging field and have a drop-down menu of ALL my existing tags appear. In the Windows client, I believe there is something called "Assign Tags Dialog" which does this. It's brought up by hitting Control+Alt+T, but that is only for Windows. is there something like that for Mac? It absolutely confounds me when tagging notes, because I literally have NO IDEA what my tag options are without seeing a list. A blank tagging field does me no good at all. I'm not Rainman, so I don't remember all the tags I created in the past year. The only option I appear to have is to type one letter and then it will show me all the tags that start with that letter. So. Not. Helpful. I can't type 26 letters one at a time, just to find the tag I want. This seems like a no-brainer feature that should be included. Unless of course it's here and I'm just missing it, which I hope is the case. Thanks!
  22. Tagging large number of notes easily

    How can I provide a common tag easily to 369 notes from a search on my Mac? Do I have to select each note individually by Command-Selecting with a mouse click? This question arose while searching in EN on my Mac, in Evernote Web in Chrome, though this issue appears equally applicable to the standalone EN for Mac application. That is, both EN apps appear to lack the capability, which I gather is present in EN for Windows, to "Shift-Select" a beginning note and and ending note, so as to also select all other notes in between. My impression is that this is a functional "hole" in the application that seriously limits one's ability to "curate" notes rapidly. Surely on a Mac there has to be a simpler way than having to Command-Select each of the 369 notes INDIVIDUALLY? Am I missing something obvious? Are there workarounds? I'd appreciate any thoughts on this; thanks...
  23. Trick or treat with the search function

    This is for real and very puzzling. I've searched on a phrase in quotes. For privacy, let's call the phrase, "Word1 Word2". The search yielded about 300 notes. I then selected all 300 and created a tag for all of them, naming the tag: Search on "Word1 Word2". In List Viewe, the tag then duly appeared on all 300 notes. I then did another search, but this time using the additional search option, TAG. I chose the tag I had just created: Search on "Word1 Word2" The search result was not 300 notes. It was zero notes. Saaay whaaat ! ? ! ? ^%#? What could be happening? Theories welcome. Thanks... P.S. Does anyone doubt me when I say Halloween comes more than once a year in Redwood City? Can't you hear the coyotes howling in the hills? Please post your idea and help yourself to a Hershey's Kiss on the front table. Reward for the best costume and explanation!
  24. Hi, Is tagging in the free edition possible? It don't work with my account. If I dry, I get the message "Nur bereits in diesem Notizbuch enthaltene Schlagwörter können zu diese Notiz hinzugefügt werden. / Contained only been in this notebook Tags can be added to this note". You have a solution for me? Thanks Martin
  25. Tagging directly in list view might appear as though it would be the quickest way to tag notes, but it appears notes simply are not able to be tagged this way. I tag notes either in Chrome or Evernote for Mac or Evernote for Windows. Regardless of which I use, it appears notes cannot be tagged directly in list view. Without such a straight-forward method, tagging a single note requires opening it. When opening a single note, no further note can be opened for tagging until the prior one is closed. Moreover, sometimes to decide on a tag requires scrolling down to view more of the note, since the Title is not exempt from scrolling (such as would be an option for scrolling in a spreadsheet). Thus, note tagging seems very, very click-intensive. On the other hand, when selecting multiple, non-adjacent notes to apply a common tag to them all, it may be less click-intensive but, once you select the first note to include in the tag group, that note is opened, and it takes up so much vertical space on the display, that the space remaining to select other notes is reduced so that only 2 or 3 note lines can be listed, versus the about 20 listed notes initially visible. If the note lines to be selected are non-adjacent, this 3-line space is awkwardly small, since it requires scrolling extensively. In summary, the only tagging process I know (are there others?) is remorselessly slow and click-intensive regardless of client. I feel like I am 'coining the faceless wind'. Does anyone have workarounds that allow quick tagging? BTW: searching on a keyword is utterly moot. It is the very keyword or phrase I'm trying to introduce, ie., via tagging. Do any other inmates have a solution? (And please do not bang your steel cups against the bars, as it is very noisy and annoying...)
