Tips for Using Evernote

Evernote Shortcuts

Shortcuts drastically reduce the time you spend creating and editing notes. For example, pressing "Ctrl-Shift-N" automatically creates a new note; "F9" syncs your information with the Evernote database; and "F7" starts the spell check. Basic Windows shortcuts, such as "Ctrl-V" for pasting and "Ctrl-X" for cutting, also work within Evernote.

Note Stuffing

Notes do not have to contain actual "notes." In other words, Evernote allows you to save many different formats in one note. You can type text, and place a file and an image beside each other within the note. This helps to keep related items together and all on one page.

Merging Notes

If you use Evernote extensively, your notes will eventually grow into a long list, making it harder to find a specific note. You do have options for keeping your notes organized, including a merge feature. This is especially useful if you have many notes that surround a specific theme or idea. Highlight the notes you wish to merge, right-click and select "Merge Notes."

Simultaneous Search

Simultaneous Search is part of an extension that lets you search your Evernote notebooks directly from search engines. It's called Evernote Web Clipper, and it is available for Chrome and Firefox. In Chrome, right-click the Web Clipper icon to open the "Options" menu, then check the "Use Simultaneous Search" box. In Firefox, open "Add-ons" under "Tools," locate the extensions in the list, then click "Preferences" and "Use Simultaneous Search."

Text Encryption

Use encryption to keep sensitive information secure and hidden from prying eyes. After highlighting the text, right-clicking on it gives you the option to choose "Encrypt Selected Text." You're asked to enter a password, which will be required to decrypt the text later. The selected text is hidden behind a drop-down button until you unlock it with the passphrase.

Advanced Searches

Searching in Evernote is easy enough, but knowing how to narrow search results can save you a lot of time. Enter "finances encryption:" (omit the quotes), for example, to locate all encrypted notes that contain the word "finances," or enter "source:mobile.*" to search all notes that you've added from a mobile phone.
