Comparing Note-Taking Software, a Rant; Evernote for Linux Is Coming Soon; Evernote CEO Ian Small Comments on NYT Article; and, Evernote for macOS 7.12 Released
August 8, 2019 Hello, and welcome to Getting More Done With Evernote, Episode 005. In this episode: Evernote ranked against other note-taking software...my rant and a few notes on better comparative analyses when discussing software. Evernote for Linux may be happening? CEO Ian Small responds to The New York Times piece (in which he was interviewed). Evernote for macOS 7.12 has released.  I’m your host, Ray Sidney-Smith, Evernote user since 2009, Evernote Certified Consultant and Evernote Regional Leader for North America. As you can imagine, I love Evernote. And, with Getting More Done With Evernote, I hope to help everyone love Evernote, or at least enjoy digital note-taking, a little more with each episode. The Verge recently published an article, “The Best Note-taking Apps for Class, Work, and Life.” I rant about its flawed comparisons of note-taking software on the market today to fit “class, work and life.” There are better comparisons of note-taking software out there, these among them: Comparison of note-taking software The 10 Best Note Taking Apps in 2018 The Best Note-Taking Apps of 2019* *The article author noted that the max file upload size was 50MB and that’s not accurate. You can upload files up to the size of the note size limit, which is 25 MB for Evernote Basic, and 200 MB for Evernote Premium accounts. Next, Evernote showed up in The New York Times, in an article, “A Unicorn Lost in the Valley, Evernote Blows Up the ‘Fail Fast’ Gospel.”  On the whole, I thought it closed positively about Evernote and its current state.  Ian Small responded in the Evernote discussion forum. Continuing on, I’ve seen hints of this for some time, but this is the first time I’ve seen an Evernote Employee explicitly say so publicly. And so, Evernote for Linux sounds like it’s coming soon! Finally, Evernote for macOS 7.12 has released. Note: Version 7.12 and updates going forward will only support macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) or higher (10.14 Mojave, 10.15 Catalina and beyond).  That’s all for now.

Evernote Is Hiring a Senior Engineering Manager; Commentary on “Behind the Scenes: Improving the Tag Experience for Evernote on Mobile”; Updating Your ScanSnap for Evernote Edition Software
August 1, 2019 Hello, and welcome to Getting More Done With Evernote, Episode 004. In this episode: Evernote is hiring for a Sr. Engineering Manager  Commentary on Behind the Scenes: Improving the Tag Experience for Evernote on Mobile with Stacey Harmon, Evernote Certified Consultant, Harmon Enterprises Updating Your ScanSnap for Evernote Edition software to the iX500 ScanSnap latest general version, and Why I’m your host, Ray Sidney-Smith, Evernote user since 2009, Evernote Certified Consultant and Evernote Regional Leader for North America. As you can imagine, I love Evernote. And, with Getting More Done With Evernote, I hope to help everyone love Evernote, or at least enjoy digital note-taking, a little more with each episode. Evernote is hiring a Sr. Engineering Manager. Our lately weekly dose of Evernote Behind the Scenes videos is out with another video, Behind the Scenes: Improving the Tag Experience for Evernote on Mobile. I welcome Stacey Harmon, Evernote Certified Consultant, Evernote Regional Leader for North America, and owner of Harmon Enterprises, back to delight in all the upcoming changes coming to Evernote’s mobile apps regarding the tags experience! Fujitsu has announced officially it was no longer supporting the ScanSnap for Evernote Edition software as of mid-2019. Evernote has provided instructions and a comparison chart for what that means for iX500 owners, all of which I see as great (and a great relief!). Also, note that iX500’s have been discontinued and support end-of-life is coming in the next few years; it’s good to start preparing for that. That’s all for now.

Updates to Evernote Web Note Editor Beta - Stacey and I also discuss some interesting new features being tested in the Evernote Web Note Editor Beta. Intermittent Sync Error on Evernote for macOS 7.11 (published in mid-June) - A bug has been reported and engineers are working on a problem with synchronization in the latest public release of Evernote for macOS (7.11). Evernote Employee Nick noted, “This is a known issue that we already logged with engineering, but has been very spotty to reproduce. We found that most users were able to get rid of the problem by quitting and reopening the app, or by logging out and logging back into their Evernote app.” That’s all for now.

Post and engage in the forums, discussion.evernote.com. macOS bug in Spotlight; Evernote is working on it. For what it’s worth, I’m using macOS High Sierra (10.13.6) and Spotlight is working for me. So, perhaps it’s something that happens with Spotlight’s code in Mojave that changed. Evernote is working on fixing that. Editor Preview -  Auto-formatting features (Web and desktop) - not quite markdown but useful to power users looking for less switching between keyboard and mouse for formatting. See How to use auto-formatting for full details on the features. Also, Marxi.co is a Web-based Markdown editor for Evernote, but note that notes are only editable within Marxico. Evernote for Windows (July 1, 2019) - Release Notes for Version 6.19.2 Public (308555) --- Note: Versions 6.19 is supported in Windows OS versions 7 and up.
