  1. Like many people, I find myself opening zillions of tabs every time I do a new research project. Then I don't know what to do with them, and they clog up and slow down my browser for days at a time. There are many good solutions out there, like Session Manager, TooManyTabs, etc, but I prefer to keep everything in Evernote. What would be super-awesome would be a way to use the clipper to copy every tab URL in my current window to an Evernote note. Until that feature is introduced, I have come up with a pretty decent work-around: 1. Send Tab URLs. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/send-tab-urls/ This addon allows a list of open tabs, including titles and URLs, to be sent to the clipboard. Just go to Firefox's File menu to find the first step, choosing "Send Tab URLs" and then choosing the clipboard as your destination. After that, they can be pasted into a note. (If you have the Windows Evernote app running, you can simply do a Ctrl-Alt-v to paste to a new note.) Bonus: Send Tab URLs also saves the titles of the tabs. 2. Multi-Link Paste and Go https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/multi-link-paste-and-go/?src=api When I want to get a collection of URLs out of a note and back into the browser, I use this extension. Just copy the list of URLs (Ctrl-c) and then paste into Firefox's address bar using the special Ctrl-Shift-v command added by the extension, and each one will open in its own tab. Magic! It doesn't matter if non-URL text is mixed in--it will ignore the "garbage" and only open the URLs--so the titles inserted by Send Tab URLs won't hurt anything. You can even have miles of note text in there, and it won't mind. This means that a quick Ctrl-a (Select All) and then Ctrl-c (copy) will do the trick if you want to open every link in a note. Score! :-) If you prefer to use the mouse to get the URL list back into Firefox, there is an extension called URL Lister which will let you paste the list into a box. (Look under the Tools menu.) https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/url-lister/ (URL Lister is also good for getting Tabs out of Firefox, but it doesn't list their titles, so Send Tab URLs might be preferable for that task.) Have fun!
  2. For many years, I've been in the habit of carrying, and having quick at hand, a pocket notepad on which to write random notes or doodles. Even while designing a website, I'd write, say, hexadecimal codes calculated for CSS colors or special characters. Or URLs for links. Items for momentary use. When a page was full, I'd rip it out and toss it. Now, I've put the notepad away. I carry an iPhone with Quickever installed. It opens instantly, ready for a note that may be saved to Evernote or trashed, depending upon what circumstances dictate. This is a new habit, a learning process for me. I find that I still grasp for the old paper notepad at first, out of long-established habit. But it's gone. Now I'm reaching for the phone.
  3. This summer, I've made it a goal of mine to clean out and organize my stuff both physical and digital. As I came across my bookmarks, I was a little bit disheartened. Visibly, I had tried to organize sites that I found, but over time, that organization slowly slipped away. Was it worth trying to visit every site and restructure my folder system, only to watch it slip again? I've decided against continuing to use Chrome's built in bookmark manager. It was becoming a mess and I felt like I would work better with visual bookmarks. After all, I use this for my "new tab" page. Why not try and find something similar that could hold a ton of different sites? From what I've deduced, here's the pros and cons of using Evernote for bookmark management. Pros: Same amount of clicks to add a bookmark. One click to press the clipper, one click to confirm. I can tag my bookmarks instead of trying to go through a convoluted folder system. I can add personal notes about the website and my use of it. I can see all of my bookmarks in a thumbnail view. When I search for a bookmark, it searches through all of the text on the home page. When I view a bookmark within EN, I can click any links on the home page. Bookmarks sync to EN Android (it's actually puzzling why Chrome doesn't do this for the stock Android browser) If I wanted to, I could create completely offline versions of a website. There are easier ways to do this, but it's an interesting possibility nonetheless. Cons: Thumbnails aren't consistently visible on Android. I have to use yet another program. I long for integration. Not all sites clip to EN correctly. I can't default a view for a particular notebook. Every time I go to my Bookmarks notebook, I have to manually select Thumbnail view. I can't say I've officially decided to use Evernote to keep track of all of my bookmarks (I'm still in an unsure testing phase as you can see above). Has anyone else tried to do this and pulled it off effectively? Does anyone recommend something that maybe I haven't come across?
  4. We can use SNS as our own memo of web sites. It's easy and fast to do. to use web clipping of Evernote is too. Which way is better to store info of web sites in the long term?
  5. Just stumbled upon the key combo for Shift and F3. It produces a drop down menu of a variety of date ranges and other criteria to narrow the search results. Screen Captures: http://www.evernote.com/shard/s2/sh/3770b490-53c7-4bfb-986e-8b17fc5e06c4/616eecb0ff566c2a34e66164ae2caedb
  6. Hi all, In the wake of the new 5.x.x redesign i though it would be good to make a place for people to share ideas on how to overcome the UI and productivity shortcumings delivered with the new update. Here is my tip on how to better manage tagging. https://www.evernote...363dc35827de07a Hope it helps you specially if you are using the GTD method to manage your evernote files. It would be great if we can get those features back so we can drag and drop notes onto notebooks and tags on notes all from one window. see attached quick mockup for my UI design solution https://www.evernote.com/shard/s82/sh/48e305fc-f3f3-41e8-b96f-e7496dc856aa/dfea4148a4a8b3b749fce125c296481e ta da davor
  7. a cool feature of Evernote in "Text encryption". It is great to be able to save your passwords securely in the notebook. But this tool also have another benefit and surly I'm not the only one who noticed it. "It hides a big chunk of text under a small image" There are times when I want to store information like Email Headers and Tech Details of something. They should be in note , but not in-front of the eye. These information might not be confidential at all, yet best thing to do is to hide them using "Text encryption". It would have been amazing if a tool existed for doing this "text hiding", without the need to use password on them. Some thing like text encryption, but without password (and maybe allowing for hidden content to be searchable
  8. I'm possibly the last person on the planet to realise this, but just in cases there's someone else out there.. Scanning with most OCR systems (ie both the ones I've tried) seems to be a 'real time' process, in as much as you scan, wait for the OCR, rename the file if you're so inclined, then save it. Despite the fact my ScanSnap S1500 fairly zips through the pages, I have to wait for Adobe or ABBYY to chomp through the file - during which process the scanner is as inert as a lumpy inert thing can be. Slow progress. So a while ago I adopted the scan first, OCR later process that seems popular amongst those of us into heavy-duty scanning. The process is now - Scan to folder <repeat until cross eyed> then dump contents of 'scanned' folder into Adobe's batch OCR window and go have a coffee. Much faster to scan, and I don't have to twiddle anything while the OCR is happening. Then I forgot to tidy up the folder last night and had to start a batch scan this morning. I'd been really busy scanning a couple of manuals. And without thinking about it I started up scanning again while OCR was still running. Which worked fine - although I changed the destination folder because my OCR is saving back to the 'scanned' folder and I didn't want new scans to get lost in the OCR'd old ones. And my OCR and scanner are running quite happily alongside each other, minding their own business all the while. It's not rocket science, and quite clearly the OCR and the scan are being run by separate apps that have no reason to trip each other up. But it does mean that I can do that tidy-up exercise each morning at the same time as new scanning, keep scanning a little longer each day, and cut down a little on my caffeine intake. All of which is good news. The new process means one new folder - scan to 'scanned' / move files to 'OCR in progress' / OCR and rename / move to Evernote. Just thought you might like to know. Gaz
  9. In Evernote, I have a few confidential private PDF, Excel and Word documents stored in my non-synchronized local notebook. My credit card user ID and personal account info My Google 2-Step verification procedure My family's scanned social security cards Export of Old Roboform passwords (no longer used) etc.This means I cannot access it from any of my other Evernote enabled devices. Just released from LastPass http://blog.lastpass.com/ You can now add documents, PDF files, and images as attachments to your secure notes. If there are files that you want to keep that shouldn't be stored unencrypted on your machine, or that need to be portable, then LastPass is the place to back them up. For example: Let's say you're traveling abroad. To prepare for the trip, store a photocopy of your passport as an attachment in LastPass. If your passport is lost or stolen, you can locate a computer, login to LastPass, open the attachment, and print it. You now have a helpful resource for replacing your lost passport. Like all stored data, attachments are locally encrypted and decrypted with a key that is never sent to LastPass, providing a secure storage option with the convenience of universal access. Attachments are supported on all browser addons and platforms, as well as the Premium iOS and Android mobile apps, and the free LastPass Wallet app on iOS. Currently, free users have up to 50 MB of encrypted file storage, and Premium users have up to 1GB encrypted file storage. Here are the steps I used to test it out. Click on Add Secure Note Click on the paperclip to find the document Add Name: Short description Select Group: Secure Notes Add Notes: Long description with additional info (if needed)keywords: encryption security
  10. Just for your information... Have installed something on my Android which looks rather useful - I already have separate apps for access to all my cloud drives so I can download/ share files as I need to, but by definition that requires me to remember where I put something so I can go there and use it. Not always as automatic as you might think. Plus as a user of (at least) three different types I already have three separate apps with different overall capacities to consider. Enter FolderSync which (currently) allows you to connect with SkyDrive, Dropbox, SugarSync, Ubuntu One, Box.net, LiveDrive, HiDrive, Google Docs, NetDocuments, Amazon S3, FTP, FTPS, SFTP, WebDAV or windows share (Samba/CIFS) accounts. It will handle multiple accounts on one provider too. Support for more platforms is planned. That takes care of the three I already use and gives me options for more - increasing my overall external capacity considerably. I've got the free version which is limited use - but there's a paid for option with all the bells and whistles once I'm sure the app is worth it..
  11. Hi, Evernote! Is it possible to use Evernote only on-line, without using my hard drive? I see I can create notes on your evernote.com site by typing a phrase. But I seem to fail to clip a piece of a text (for example, to clip a paragraph from this forum) without the necessity to open my Evernote application which lives in my Mac. I tried to clip with a clipping client on Mozilla Nightly and when I pushed the elephant in the right upper corner of my FireFox brouser, my Evernote local application would automatically launched. Before my clipping attempts I had left my local Evernote application. My OS is Mac 10.6.8.
  12. I use Evernote to store a lot of political comments. In some cases, I use the Evernote Merge feature to put both perspectives in the same note. The Evernote separator bar is a clue to me that there is additional information further down the note. I could use a link, but this is cleaner for my needs. Here is an example of a commentary and the actual posting. http://www.evernote....c239220b8cc3fa2
