  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  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

  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. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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!
  17. I thought a good way to start this forum would be to provide some tips that I found helpful when I started going paperless at home. Here are 3 things that worked for me: 1. Start by going forward, not backward. I decided that it would be too much of an initial effort to go through my filing cabinet and scan in all that paper. So I decided at the outset to start with new paper as it came in. This helped the task seem much less daunting. Maybe I'll get back to the filing cabinet one day--but as it is, I almost never open it so there's no need to waste time scanning 2. Start with a simple organization. I do a lot of taxonomy-related work with data in my day job. One thing I've learned is that the simpler the system, the easier it is to use. For my paperless life at home, I use one notebook in Evernote. I call it my Paperless Filing Cabinet. Everything goes into that notebook and most of it gets tagged. I try to limit the tags to simple, easy-to-think of things. Mostly, when I need to find something, I depend on Evernote's search capabilities; the fact that it can even make scanned PDFs searchable is a powerful feature. I can usually come up with the document I'm looking for in seconds--much faster than if I were thumbing through my filing cabinet. 3. Establish a routine. I try and deal with paper once each day. When I get home from work, I grab the mail, sort through it, and scan in any paper that I want to keep. I then shred the original. I takes 5-10 minutes each day and the paper doesn't stack up on my desk, waiting to be scanned. Plus, it is available for me to search and access instantly. Do have any tips to share on using Evernote to go paperless? Let's hear them!
  18. I used to have piles of manuals for various gadgets. Often they'd disappear when I need them most (how do you change the battery in the thermostat?). Since going paperless, I have moved to a completely paperless set of manuals for all of my devices, gadgets and anything that comes with a manual--and I've done it without scanning a single document. Here's how: Collected all my existing paper manuals into a single pile. For each manual, I went to the manufacturer's website and located a PDF version of the manual. Add the PDF file to a new note in Evernote and tag the note "manuals" Repeat for the rest of the manuals in the pile. For every new item I get that comes with an instruction manual, I do the same thing as soon as I open the box. Then I trash or recycle the paper manual that came with the item. Finally, I created a Saved Search called "Manuals and User Guides" that looks for anything tagged "manuals". I think I have about 20 or so right now and I no longer have piles of manuals sitting around the house. Better yet, when I need to know how to use the Picture-in-Picture feature on my TV in the downstairs family room, I can pull out my iPhone or iPad, open Evernote, click my saved search and instantly find what I'm looking for without getting up from the couch. :-)
