  1. Would love to see an option to put a description of the notebook that would pop up on mouse over, that could be used to describe or define the purpose of the notebook.
  2. I would like to select multiple notes and edit all their titles at once by adding new text as a prefix or suffix to the existing titles of the selected notes. This could work similarly to the "add tags" / "move to notebook" feature for multiple notes, except there's a button "add title text" and you select whether "as prefix" or "as suffix". As I have accumulated more and more notes, I use the Snippet view less often and the List view more frequently (to see more notes on one screen). A title prefix can serve as a visual indicator for list view, providing much the same function as a thumbnail does in Snippet view. Use case 1 (prefix): Add note context as text at the beginning of the note title The date is a type of note context. At the end of the day, I could show all notes created, select them, type in the date, and have it added to the beginning of each note title. Here's another example of adding note context to the title. I work in marketing, and name my digital files by the type of content. I may not remember exactly what I named a file, but I remember what type of file it is so this is how I start a file search. Brochure file names start with BR, application notes start with AN, publications (peer-reviewed journal papers) start with PUB, advertisements start with AD, etc. This is a fast aid to sort tons of files existing in a single folder, and rapidly zero in on the desired file. I'd like to apply the same principle to my EN notes. Use case 2 (suffix): Add a unique code to the end of a title. Sometimes, for a string of related notes, I include in the title a unique "code" that allows a search to find ONLY those notes. I add it to the end of the title so it is "out of the way" as sometimes only the beginning of title text is visible on screen. I assign tags for topics I will access frequently, trying to keep tags to a manageable level, and use "title codes" for rarely accessed but important info (such as computer repair history).
  3. The current implementation of Note Syncing in Evernote is equal parts briliant and scary-as-heck! Here's a few recent experiences and requests to improve this VITAL area of the product! 1) Sync/Search Titles First, then Content -- Not sure how many times I've logged into Evernote and used Search to look for a Note that I cannot find. Its usually either a note I created on another device, or one my wife made in a shared notebook. I can understand why it might take a while to appear (ie hasn't synced yet), but do not understand why it takes *that* long. Most modern cloud apps are way better at this! Solution: In most cloud apps (think Gmail for example), some form of light/quick syncing is used (think LDAP) to sync the titles of emails/content, and then a heavier sync is done once the actual email/content is accessed. And background syncing makes sure the list of titles is always as current as possible. In short, one should NEVER log into Evernote and not be able to find all of their notes listed by titles in the order they expect. That window of time should be minimized at all costs. In addition, if a Note exists, Search should always find it. Period! Or at the very least have a flag that says "Some of your Notes have not synced yet, would you like to start that")? In summary, the list of Notes should always be current, and searchable, that should be your goal. Research Gmail for a better way to implement sync via LDAP style headers. 2) Manage Conflicting Changes directly -- I had a freak out moment today when an entire page worth of notes I typed on the train could not be found. The Note I was editing had conflicting changes (ie I had accessed it on multiple devices, and offline on the train), but the way that Evernote resolved these conflicts was "interesting" to say the least. When I viewed my note in the office on my laptop after connecting to Wifi I saw a version from Dec-12th as the primary content (content from a week ago), with a section at the bottom flagged with Dec-15th Conflicting Changes (a few days ago). In the note history I could see changes from Dec 18th (yesterday), but the content from today / Dec 19th was nowhere to be found! So I researched this on Evernote.com and realized that on occasion Evernote will create a separate notebook called "Conflicting Changes" that will contain other changes not placed directly into the note itself. WTF? Solution: Why do you have so many methods for managing conflicting changes? You really only need one. And why on earth don't you have a feature IN THE NOTE itself that allows you to manage all of the conflicts in a centralized way. Why spread this out into a bunch of different places and hope the user figures it out? Not to mention the layering problems with Paid vs. Free users, or Mac vs. PC, who each get a different experience. Please add a single feature in the note that says "This note has conflicting changes, please click here to manage". Simple. btw This Support Note from your website says it all: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208314448-How-to-recover-missing-notes ("If you are this...", "If you can't...", "If you are on a Mac", etc, etc) This is a nightmare. You could reduce this page to a single paragraph with a better implemented feature. Lastly, I love Evernote. Use it every single day. So please take this feedback as constructive. As mentioned above, I know multi-device / offline syncing is hard (I was a PM for a desktop database app), but many modern apps have this stuff nailed. There are better ways, and I'd love you more for adding them!!
  4. Is there a way to bulk edit all note titles? I scan all my notes and it imports it from another program.
  5. Just upgraded to Evernote 6.0 from the App Store. It's not displaying the notes. Just a big blank area where the note goes. Except sometimes it does display the note. When it does, it erases the note's title and then uploads it. So now I have several untitled notes with the wrong modification dates. And then I thought to go recover the notes by going to the web and using the history to reset the mod dates and get the titles back, and nope, no history. This is kind of a disaster. Kevin
  6. Ever since i updated Evernote in the past two days, i have had trouble accessing any of my notes. I can see them but if i try to open them, I get a blank screen AND then when i close the (blank) screen, the note becomes "untitled". Does anyone have a clue what is going on? Thanks
  7. I let Evernote (5.something, pretty recent) on my 10.9.5 box upgrade itself to version 6.0. None of my messages are available. Actually, sometimes they appear when I click their title, but then the text disappears when I click another note. I checked the web GUI, and the notes are still there (whew!) I read about some other bugs in 6.0, so I manually downloaded 6.0.1 from the website. Result: - I seem to have all my notes. - I seem to have lost all the note titles from the few items I attempted to open. I was able to re-type them in the OSX client After a few minutes of further operation, it seems to be working OK. Still, pretty crummy upgrade.
  8. When ever I open a note the title is highlighted. I have accidentally stroked a key erasing the title! I guess designers never accidentally strike a key so they never thought there would be clumsy customers like me. Is there any way to turn this off?
  9. I am searching for very important notes I created months ago. When I search for the note and select a note to view from the list genreated during the search, the title of the selected note is erased and then synced. Now if is almost impossible to find these notes now that the titles of the notes have been erased. Please let me know if there is a way to get these back. System Details: Evernote for Mac v 6.0 on OSX Yosemite Model Name: MacBook Pro Model Identifier: MacBookPro10,1 Processor Name: Intel Core i7 Processor Speed: 2.3 GHz Number of Processors: 1 Total Number of Cores: 4 L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB L3 Cache: 6 MB Memory: 8 GB Boot ROM Version: MBP101.00EE.B05 SMC Version (system): 2.3f36
  10. Reproducible bug in Mac 6.0.1 running under OS 10.9.5: 1. Create or select any note. 2. Press command-P to print. 3. Press ESC to cancel the print request. 4. The contents of the note's title field have been removed.
  11. Hi, not been using EN too long but long enough to get to grips with it and require a Premium account. However, on many instances when look at a note or open something from within an attachment, the Note reverts to being called 'Untitled'. At first i thought it was maybe me accidentally being a bit quick on the keyboard but i have been extra careful over the weekend and it is still doing it. Its very annoying, particularly when a note is just a title, for example a reminder as then you have no content to jog your memory on what it should be. I have searched the forum and some say upgrade from the App Store version 6 to the web version 6..01 which i have done but it is still happening (and if this is a flaw in 6.0 then surely 6.0 should be replaced quickly with 6.01), but its still happening. Lost a bit of confidence due to fact i have had a couple of notes revert to 'untitled' and i cannot remember what they were. Any help or steer would be great. Thanks all Barry
  12. First, I want to thank the faithful posters of this forum for helping me get started. I downloaded tons of forum discussions to Pockets and have spent the last month reading and rereading different people's organizational systems before I began. Almost became paralyzed with too much info, but finally just dove in and am loving it so far. Thank you! Now to my question. I read on this forum a couple of times that I should date each note in the title for ease in finding over the years, and the preferred method of dating was yr,month, day (ex. 130220 for today). I have been doing that, but honestly don't see how that is going to be helpful for me in the long run. What have you found. For the record, I've taken the advice of the pros that have posted here and have minimal notebooks (inbox, active, archive) and am including keywords in my titles and using a few tags when necessary. I also add the day's date to the beginning of each note, but it feels arbitrary when the note itself doesn't have any relevance to the date. Am I missing something or did I misunderstand something?
