Things I hate about Evernote

First of all, Evernote is a great note-taking and note-syncing application and I am using it on daily basis. I use Evernote to keep track of my work, projects, as a personal knowledge base, as a to-do list. What I really appreciate is that all notes are automatically synced with server, so first of all, all my notes are backed up and secondly, I am able to access them not not only from the client app on my laptop, but also from anywhere in the world using web site and what’s even cooler, from my windows mobile phone. And by the way, Evernote is free.I find Evernote very useful, period. But Evernote (at least  EvernoteWindows client) has some glitches I really hate. I will blog about them. Hopefully Evernote will fix them one day.

#1 – You cannot do a search directly in a note editor (opened as a separate window)

Evernote’s help recommends using ‚search box‘, which is application-wide search across all notes or notes from a selected notebook):

This is fine, but what I really miss is a search focused only on selected note. Typically I have a couple of note editors opened as separate windows, hence directly accessible from windows taskbar). And very often I want to search only in one of them.

There is no way to do it. Actions such as Find (Ctrl+F) or F3 (Search), that are available huge majority of text editors is not here!

Guys @ Evernote, please add Find/Search into note editort! Thanks.

Thinkpad – jak se zbavit pipnuti pri stisku tri klaves

Pokud používáte laptop Thinkpad, jistě jste zaregistrovali, že občas dojde při stisku tří (a více) kláves současně k nepříjemnému silnému „pípnutí“. Pokud vám to vadí (a používáte Windows), návod jak se zbavit tohoto nepříjemného zvuku naleznete zde: ThinkPad Keyboard Beeps Fixed. Trik spočívá v zakázání ovladače Beep 😉 (naleznete ho mezi Non-Plug and Play Drivers, nejdříve však musíte povolit zobrazení skrytých zařízení).
