Sample text

You can edit, rename or delete saved searches by right-clicking them. Simple. Finally, we have Attributes. These behave a lot like saved searches, but are built into Evernote. Here’s what the list looks like when (mostly) expanded: “Created” and “Last Modified” deal with, and I’m totally serious, the dates your notes were created or modified. If you select “Yesterday” under the “Since” section, you’ll get all of the notes created (or modified) since yesterday. Those are pretty easy to wrap your head around.

And, again, if you want to create a stack, just drag one notebook on to another and rename the stack it creates (right-click > Rename Stack). If you want to add a notebook to a stack, drag it onto the stack and release. Want to remove a notebook? Drag it on to All Notebooks at the top of the list and release. Tags work similarly, as they can be “nested” within other tags. Just like with Notebook Stacks, this organizational technique exists purely as a visual aid to you, the fetching user. If you have a tag called “Food,” you might want to add the tags “Thai,” “Tex-Mex,” and “Italian Fusion” as child tags.

For example, I send a lot of email receipts to Evernote for expenses I’ll want to deduct during tax time and I want them filed and tagged in a specific way so I can find them later. So, I created a snippet in TextExpander that quickly becomes the correct notebook and tag combination. When I type “;;entax” at the end of an email subject, that text quickly becomes: “@Archive #receipts #tax-deductible #[current year]” (without the quotes or brackets). If you find your self regularly emailing the same kinds of things to Evernote, this might be a tactic you want to consider employing.
