  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. Example: under "All Notes," it says Add photos You can add photos to your notes from your Gallery. Then "Try It." No matter if I click "Try it" or click the "X" button, it eventually comes back or other tips do
  3. Hi all Really simple question: if I'm writing in a note and want to switch focus to the note list and go up/down, what is the keyboard route? And vice versa, say I select/highlight a note in note list how do I quickly jump the cursor into that note to edit with they keyboard? (Rather than clicking in the note with the mouse)? See my beautiful diagram below. I think it may involve the Tab key but not sure... Thanks! Charlie
  4. For some reason (other than old age!), I've had the hardest time learning the keyboard shortcut keys in the Evernote Windows program for moving among the Left Panel, the Note List , and the current note I'm editing. It's annoying to have to use the mouse for all that. I had all the information in a list-of-all-the-shortcuts note buried in a Using Evernote notebook that I'd created. But I wanted faster access. So I created a note whose first line (and therefore title) was "TAB: Left<>Search<>List<>Title". In the body of the note, I expanded on this with some instructions: Use the Tab key to move from Left Panel > Search Bar > Note List > Title field of current note. Shift+Tab reverses direction. Tab from Title field moves to body of note. Use Esc to move from body of note to Note List. Then--and here comes the brilliant part--I dragged the note onto the shortcuts (which I keep in the toolbar at top). I massaged the note title till it was as above, which will completely display in the shortcuts. Now, whenever I forget, I can just glance at my toolbar, and there's the basic info as a shortcut: "TAB: Left<>Search<>List<>Title". If that proves too cryptic, I can always click on it and bring up the note. Thank you, folks, thank you very much.
  5. I have some notebooks that I'm going to export because I no longer need them anymore. I'd like to be able to access them online. I have a VPS hosting account on GoDaddy. I know how to install WordPress on my directory but I don't know how HTML websites work for this case. Do you think that exporting some of my notebooks as HTML and upload it on one of my directories would let me see it online? I understand that i would need to create a domain/subdomain, and all that.
  6. Hi, Thanks for a great product. I need to build a presentation that sort of expands the note line by line on the same page. So in my note I have a headline followed by several sub-lines. These sub-lines must appear one after the other and then expanding the page but keeping them together on the same page. example: Note: (Line1) Summer holiday 2016 (Line2) Greece (Line3) Germany (Line4) France So I want to see the presentation as keeping all the lines on ONE page but they must appear one after the other (after pressing space or whatever): Line1 (press a key) Line2 (press a key) etc etc So the end result on the same page is: Summer holiday 2016 Greece Germany France I could not find anything on the blogs or help. I understand how to use the presentation editor to control the page-breaks but fail to find a way to "build" up the presentation page line by line after pressing a key. Hope you understand and can help. Thanks
  7. Windowsユーザの皆さま、Evernote for Windows 6.4から左ペインの背景色が変更されました。 デフォルトでは黒目となっておりますが、元の白色に戻すことも可能です。 設定変更箇所は以下の通りです。 【変更方法】 Everntoeメニューバーより ツール>オプション>全般>インターフェイス 左サイドバーのテーマ を「明るめ」に変更をお願いいたします。
  8. Hello, all! I just wanted to create this thread so that I can keep track of all the organizational changes I've made in Evernote. Hopefully, this will inspire others or have other people help in creating better techniques! Anyways, I'll begin. How Notebooks are Organized My mind works like a web like this. Everything is linked together. I created a whole bunch of stacks and added notebooks. Each notebook also has the name of the stack, dash, the topic of the notebook. It makes it easy for me to find what I need. ------------------------------------------------- Update Links: Tags Tags & Notes
  9. Frecuentemente nos llegan preguntas acerca de poder crear notas escritas a mano utilizando Evernote de la manera que ahora se puede con Evernote Android y Evernote iOS. Aunque todavía estamos trabajando en mejorar esta función en Windows (ahora que más y más equipos tienen pantallas Touch), existe una manera ya incluida en Evernote que puede ayudar: se llama NOTA MANUSCRITA. Puedes utilizar esta función con una pantalla touch con stylus o incluso sin una pantalla táctil con un mouse o stylus externo/tablet con stylus. 1) Añade el atajo de Nota Manuscrita en la barra de Herramientas 2) Presiona el atajo para crear una nueva Nota Manuscrita --------------------------------------------------------------- ¡Espero este tip sea de ayuda!
  10. I have used Evernote for Windows and iOS for about 2 years but have only used it for text notes. I want to start using web clipper, importing documents and images and smaller screen captures. I know these will increase the overall size of my database but does each imported item get uploaded/downloaded every time I open Evernote? I am currently averaging 10% of my free 60 MB monthly upload quota. Does my usage only increase the first time I upload new content? Or does my usage increase each time I download content on my various linked devices? What about each time my devices sync? Thanks for any education on this topic!
  11. Hi everyone! I'm new to Evernote and I was wondering if there was a way to add additional information to items my notes that are lists without cluttering the look of the list. I know you can add as much as you like to a list including photos, links, and long form text, and that a more simplified version of what I am describing could be achieved by insetting bullet points under the primary list items with the additional information, pics, or links -- But I make a lot of lists and some of them are quite long and complex, so I was wondering if there is a collapsable version of this that would keep the list looking more streamlined and as a result easier to brows through and manage. I will give two short examples to further illustrate what I mean as I realize I may not be explaining it well. Say I have a very long list of movies I love, and with each movie I want to include a brief summary and my personal thoughts. I wouldn't really want to clutter it by having the descriptions and my thoughts (which could be lengthy) initially visible under each primary list item. Is there a way to have sub-notes (I don't quite know what to call it) which, by clicking on any given movie would expand out? Say I went on a vacation and made a list of all the cool places I went to and all the great restaurants I ate at. In this list I would want to include pictures for reference but if I included pictures under every item the list would look very bulky and become unwieldy. Is there a way to expand and contract the photos attached to specific list items so that they are not initially visible and the list can appear stream-lined?Thank you so much for your help and thoughts!
  12. Although Evernote isn't designed to be a photo album, it can be convenient to keep photos in Evernote. I'm an iPhone user and have photos organized in albums, but those albums don't sync with my PC or my Kindle Fire; I can't view them on the web, either. I like to use Evernote for as many functions as I can because it syncs everywhere. I created this flowing system for getting photos into an Evernote photo album: I told Evernote for Windows to monitor a particular folder and to add anything in that folder to an Evernote Photo Album notebook. I use Picasa on my PC to organize photos. When I want to add photos to my Evernote Photo Album notebook, I simply export those photos to the Windows folder that Evernote monitors, and with Evernote magic, the photos are added to my Photo Album notebook. I have Picasa export the photos at 800 pixels rather than full resolution, because I don't need full-sized photos in Evernote -- and also, full sized photos eat into one's Evernote space allotment faster. Later on, I organize photos into nested notebooks under my Photo Album notebook. That's it. You can adapt this system, such as it is, to other photo organizing programs, should you not use Picasa. There's also an IFTTT recipe that automatically copies photos from an Evernote iOS photo album to Evernote, https://ifttt.com/recipes/104765. That works well, too, for going directly from iPhone or iPad to an Evernote photo album. I like having my photo albums available everywhere I am, and now with Evernote they are. Bill
  13. I'm a knowledgeable evernote user. I have a premium account & yet evernote insists on giving me tips about how to use evernote. It has never yet given me a tip I didn't already know about. On a small phone screen, this is quite annoying. So give me an option to turn those tips OFF please. I did like the option to click through to updates from evernote. However, they didn't interfere with my use of the app. Recently, for instance, that great looking bag. I won't be buying it, but I didn't mind seeing it. I do mind getting reminded to do things I already do. Don't get me wrong - I would not want the bag-add in my main evernote app either. I go there for my notes. (on android, Samsung Galaxy S4).
  14. I have several saved searches, some of which I've added to my favourites list (shortcuts). Is there a way that I can add on-the-fly to an existing search? I'm looking for some kind of "search within this context" and I don't seem to find anything on the search bar. I don't want to change the original search because I'm just looking for something special today and tomorrow it will be a different special. Thanks in advance for any help.
  15. My problem is more a philosopical one about data organization. My usual evernote is sorted in Last Updated order, because that tends to be what I'm currently working on. But I do run across stuff that I have to stuff into Evernote, and stuff gets updated, so there's a lot of irrelevant stuff in that list. I spends lots and lots of time trying to remember how I organized stuff in Evernote (i.e. I know that I made a bunch of notes which have url links on one introductory page, but what did I call the introductory page?) Everytime I add a new note, I try to remember how it fits into my life and I apply several tags. But I do not know absolutely that I have the right tags. The world is moving at a phenomenal rate and I have to just keep going. What would be really useful would be some routines that I could run automatically at the end of the day which would add tags to notes based on their content, then I would know that selecting tag x would really give me all the stuff that should be there. (i.e. I could create a long search which looked for stuff in the note but which didn't have the appropriate tag). Thanks for advice.
  16. Hello folks, One of the things I use Evernote for is to backup my blog. Each time I post I have IFTTT send the post to Evernote which saves it. However, it also saves all of the tags that the post has. At the end of each year I export all the blog posts into one HTML archive and back it up to my external HDD and then delete the posts from Evernote. However, the tags associated with those posts are not removed and thus are still in my tag list with 0 uses indicated. I'd like to remove these tags but don't want to have to go through the entire tag list individually to delete them one by one. Is there a way - either on the desktop program or the on-line application - to organise the list of tags by the amount of times used so I could easily delete any tags with 0 uses? Thanks in advance.
  17. I just saved a few extra Megabytes on my phone, which I'm constantly running out of space on. So, I had this app called Keyring that scanned my loyalty/reward cards from all the stores. It has a coupon feature, which I never use, so I wanted to get all my scanned barcodes exported and delete the 5 Mb app. Step 1: install a screen capture app. I installed screenshot for Android and it works well. Step 2: run the screen capture app, and open your loyalty card scanning app. Allow the screen capture tool to take the snapshot of the screen with the barcode. It should save it as a nice compact file - under 40 kb. Repeat until you've got them all. Step 3: transfer all your screen shots to your evernote account. I transferred them individually instead of together to cut down on load time when I'm in a store. I tagged them 'barcodes' and stuck them in the folder 'Store Cards'. Step 4: delete the loyalty card scanning app (keyring in my case) and the screen capture app. Now you should have a bit more space on your phone. If this is not your style, with Keyring, you can download again and log in, and all your reward barcodes will download, so you've got nothing to lose. Using this method is nice because the images that get created are going to be a lot smaller than taking a photo of every barcode and should alleviate download time when you're getting close to the register or are in a spotty reception area.
  18. Can anyone share links to examples of how people organize and utilize their notebooks and tags? I think way you organize tags, notebooks, and how they work together is critical to staying organized - and mine could use improvement. I've read a lot of the Ambassador Tips and they tend to say "I organize my research in Evernote", but I'd love to see the details. Do you use a notebook for each project and sub-notebooks for research? Or maybe a great big notebook for all projects and then lots of tags to keep the separate projects organized? Or some freaky hybrid? I know there are a bazillions ways to do it and there is no right way. But hope if I see a few examples I can find a process that works for me. Thanks! Mashugana
  19. Hi Everyone, I am Bec, one of Evernote's Education Ambassador's. I have recently started a new series on my blog with tips and ideas for teachers interested in learning about Evernote and the best ways for them to use it in the classroom. You can access the series on the Evernote page on my blog, along with many other blog posts of tips and ideas- http://missspinkontech.global2.vic.edu.au/evernote/ I often get asked about how I organise my notes and notebooks in Evernote. I created an infographic to share how I do this. The infographic is just my way, I am sure many teachers do it differently- that is the beauty of Evernote...the way it works for me can be completely different to the way it works for someone else! http://missspinkontech.global2.vic.edu.au/2013/08/21/how-do-you-organise-your-evernote/ Regards, Bec
  20. https://www.womeninfocus.com.au/docs/DOC-2822 Here is my final article for the Women in Focus website, looking at my favourite apps from Evernote Trunk. These are often ones I recommend for my Tech Coach HQ clients and work really well for mobile solutions. Would love feedback.
  21. Ran across this article today on Mac Tuts+, which has a pretty awesomely diverse set of "advanced" techniques you can use to help tame your Evernote account, which can often take to running wild on the Serengeti, taking mud baths, or helping you manage your wine selections. A lot of these pertain to Mac (see Applescripts section) but a lot of them can apply to your Evernote account generally, such as advanced search grammar, merging accounts, templates, and IFTTT. I would not suggest using any of these on a real elephant. http://mac.tutsplus.com/tutorials/productivity/taming-the-elephant-awesome-evernote-tips-and-tricks/
  22. 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

  24. Hello, please help me with strategy, i can't combine business and personal things on my evernote. I get lost in my notebooks and tags. i cant figure out which logic notebooks and tags to have. I tried 2 methods, please help me out, is there any examlpes of Evernote organization? Thanks
  25. I recently purchased an iPad 3, and I am thrilled at the possibilities to simplify my life as a high school, varsity, cheerleading coach. I do not teach, but I know that there are plenty of teachers who also coach and could benefit from my EN for Coaches tips- I hope! INVENTORY- I recently cleaned out our school equipment lockers. It's my first year running the program, so I wasn't sure where to start. After sorting out all the uniforms and equipment, I realized we were missing some things. I decided to take a picture of each uniform, each set of signs, each set of different pom-poms, each set of warm ups and any other random equipment or supplies and upload them each to a seperate note in Evernote. Next to each picture in the note, I logged how many piecese or sets of each item we have. KEEPING TRACK OF IMPORTANT FORMS- This one is a no-brainer, and a popular use of evernote. After collecting emergency medical forms from 30+ girls, I put them in alphabetical order and then scanned them as one document. I bookmarked each girl's form in Adobe, and then uploaded it into Evernote as a document. I have done the same thing for other important forms. This way I only have to carry around my iPad, instead of stacks of forms. ATTENDANCE- First, I downloaded "Noteshelf", which is a handwriting app that is integrated with Evernote. Then I created my own notebook back ground (explained in the noteshelf app) with each of the girls' names in the first column, and "present", "tardy" and "absent" in the top row. Now I can easily start a new notebook for every event, take attendance, and send the note to Evernote. No more chance of lost pages out of a paper notebook. FORMATIONS/ PLAYS- I also plan to use the handwriting app, Noteshelf, to keep track of all our different formations (other sports could use this to keep track of plays created on the spot). This app works best with a stylus pen. No more will I have to fumble through a large notebook to find a particular formation- I will simply do a quick search in Evernote, and it will pull up. I would imagine I haven't even begun to tap into the possibilities. I would love to hear your ideas on how evernote can take the "office" duties out of coaching to allow more time to coach!
