The Mac's new split view is wonderful. Here's an example on how it can be used with Evernote.
Evernote for Mac on El Capitan adds Split View support, new keyboard shortcuts, and easier sharing.

Thanks for the link to the latest version!  I had formatted my hard drive last week and hadn't been able to get Evernote working since, now it is!

Organizing and managing research notes . . . what a chore! Let Evernote do it for you.
Evernote is an amazing tool for managing genealogical research. With Evernote you’ll not only have all your research with you wherever you go, but you can have any item of information in fron…

Is anyone else having an issue with the new Evernote Safari web clipper?  I an not get it to work and have discussing with Evernote Support to no avail. (Evernote Chrome is working fine).

My issue has been corrected, extensions were preventing from working. Any one with this problem, just ask, I sent instructions to Evernote so others can be assisted.

I have had Evernote since it was born. I have a Clearly and an Evernote button in Chrome but I tended to right click and pick Clearly or clip to Evernote. I thought they were the same, just different methods.

At Denise's lecture I learned her Evernote worked differently and I liked hers better! Playing I realized that the Evernote button IS very different than using right click even though they are called the same. Clearly is different too.

Might be time to revisit some other things I've known about Evernote for so long!

This gives us more options. I like that idea.
Over the past several months we’ve taken everything we’ve learned over the years and applied rigorous research to get our paid offering right. The process was eye-opening. As it turns out, there were three things users want: a basic level, a lower-priced tier, and a tier with unlimited uploads. Today, you get it all. Say hello to the three new levels of Evernote.

I have started to use EverMail as an add-on for Mail (Mac) to send emails to my Evernote account. I like it so far!

Evernote's new Scannable app (iOS only) is amazing - and free. It's the easiest way I've found to capture an image and put it where I want it.

The Evernote export function (on my Mac) is offers both an HTML option and their .ENEX option which is XML. Both formats are plain text files with "tags". HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is the language of the "written" Web (web sites, blogs, etc.) while XML (eXtensible Markup Language) is the language of the "data" Web. They aren't proprietary but neither is very easy to read in their raw state. If anything should happen to Evernote, long before they actually shut down, there will be dozens of companies offering easy migration to their platform or service.

We are way too big a market to be ignoresd.
 
I have notes in Evernote since 2005. I note the backups are in a proprietary format. What if Evernote goes bellyup? They just dumped a long time program (Food). Does anyone know a way to convert those files into something that is at least readable?

I copied all the CDs to a removable hard drive, which is backed up. So I have them - just in case - but I don't have to look at them.

There are four export options on real computers. <smurk> .enex, .html, .mht, .html. The difference between the two .html options is one is a single web page and the other is multiple web pages. I believe the multiple page option is new. Perhaps complaining helps Evernote think. Anyway, it works well.

Using Evernote for your Genealogy To Do List 
Last month I started keeping track of my to do list in Evernote using TaskClone.  It worked great and with a few minor adjustments this moth has been going even better. One of my concerns was that My Task List note in Evernot...

You are so organized! I put todo notes all over the place. I do preface them with TODO: so I can use Evernote's search to find them.

I don't think you do. I think he needs to go elsewhere.

I use Evernote on my Mac. I am in the process of going through all my digital and paper files and putting them on Evernote. I found this Automator action that automatically uploads any file that I put in the desktop folder up to Evernote. This is very convenient for me when I want to do a batch of files in various folders and just get them into Evernote. It's not real difficult to do. I am a bit techy but I don't know code or anything like that. This is a video. The one mistake I made first was that when he says to copy and paste a code (the code is posted on this page and also links to a page with the same code) 'here'. Well, I didn't delete the ( ) so if you try this delete the ( ) where it says to input the code and it should work. Pretty nifty! Evernote PC users have this capability but the Mac version does not-not sure why that is but....

D.B. - When you use the clipper, you should see a panel similar to the one here. What will be clipped depends on which option you choose. I have had problems after choosing the screenshot option that the next time I try to use the clipper it automatically takes a screenshot. I've had to hit ESC and then choose another clip option then start again. Hope this helps.

The title of my note is Research Index.  I created it by search for all of my research log / notes notes and then sorted them alphabetically.  After they were sorted I selected all of them and selected created table of contents note.  Then I selected all of the note links in the newly created note and added a check box to each note link.  I added spaces before and after each surname grouping and then added the surname headings. 

I am using this note to go through each of these research log / notes notes to make sure everything is added to my Legacy Family Tree software and to see if there are any to dos to be done.  Once I have checked them all I am going to delete the checkboxes and keep this note as an index to these notes.  Each time a create a new research log / notes note I will add it to this index under the appropriate surname heading.

Bummer. I thought from +Rod Deller had posted that it would. My misunderstanding. That would be a wonderful feature!
