Harness the power of Evernote for Mac, a popular cloud note-taking and note-sharing tool. This course begins with a look at ways Evernote can help you note and track important items and then build and work with notes and collect notebooks for sharing. Author David Rivers also shows how to take and store photos, screenshots, and even video in notebooks. Plus, the powerful tagging and search features help keep your notes organized and accessible. The course also covers the notebook sharing and protection features, so your privacy is maintained at all times.
If you've been following along with me, you know understand what Evernote's all about. Storing anything and everything so you have quick and easy access to it from virtually anywhere at any time. Well, when we start storing things like text notes, audio clips, clippings from a web page, for example, where are we storing those things? We're storing them in Notebooks. When you create your Evernote account, you're given one default notebook. Here in Snippet view, with Notes selected, if we click the drop-down at the top, you'll see that one default notebook and it goes by your username, mine, DRriversMac8.
If I select that, I'll only be viewing the notes in that notebook and it appears at the very top of my Snippet list. Well you can have many, many notebooks, depending how you like to stay organized, some people like several notebooks, by topic, project, and so on. Others prefer fewer notebooks, to make it a little bit easier to find things. That's totally up to you. I'm going to show you some ways to create new notebooks, beginning with the file menu. Let's go up to File and down to New notebook and you'll notice two options in this popup menu. There it is synchronize notebook Shift Command N the keyboard shortcut or a local notebook.
A synchronized notebook is the notebook you want to create if you're going to be sharing or if you want to be able to access the content from other devices like mobile devices or the web version of Evernote. A local notebook is private and its stored locally and no one's going to be able to share it, it's all just for you. Well by default when we create new notebooks using other options this is what we're creating here a synchronized notebook so let's do that now. Notice the name of the notebook, you're switched over to the Notebooks view. You might be looking at List view like me or you can switch to Grid view if you like.
If we go back to List view, notice that we need to go back to creating that new notebook. So let's do that but this time let's go to the button New notebook. Again the default is a synchronized notebook. We didn't have the option by using the button to select it but that is the default. I'll show you in a moment how we can check it out. Let's change the name, though, that appears here by default using your own credentials. I'm going to type in one that I like to create, called Inbox. When you press enter, you now have a new notebook, and 0 notes.
When you hover over this, whether you're in this list view or let's switch to grid view. And hover over your inbox notebook. Those are the little icons that appear for sharing and fgor accessing you settings. Let's go to the Setting icons, this little cog. There's the name, inbox I like to make this my default notebook. Click the check box. You can only have one default notebook, and your original notebook is your default until you choose another one. By choosing an inbox notebook as your default notebook, anything you send to Evernote, whether it's via email, or web clippings, for example, they'll go to your inbox.
I like the naming Inbox for a notebook. It's easy to remember where things go to when I send them to Evernote. And you can follow along with me if you like. You don't have to create an inbox notebook, but I'm going to do that, and I'm going to make it my default. Notice it is a synchronized notebook. We cannot change the notebook type. We can change the default at any time, but we can't change the type of notebook once it's created. So, let's click Save, and it becomes our default notebook, now. Let's switch to our List view. There we go.
And now we know that when we send things to Evernote, they're going to go to this Inbox notebook. Okay, great. Let's create another new notebook. I like to right click anywhere in an open space here in Notebook view. You'll notice another option to create New notebook. Let's do that. Another type of notebook I like to create and you may agree or disagree Is one that I can share with everyone. In other words, make it a public notebook, and anything I put into that notebook, people will be able to access. It's a great way to share things temporarily.
When you're no longer willing to share those items,you just simply remove them from this notebook. So I'm going to call this one Temp, a temporary notebook, and press Return. So if we now hover over this one and go to the Settings, you'll see indeed it is a synchronized notebook, which is has to be if we plan on sharing, and we will talk about sharing in detail later on. But for now we know it's ready to be shared with everyone and we can temporarily place items in this notebook to share. All right, let's click Cancel. We're not going to change anything there.
Another option is to create notebooks based on any projects you might be working on. Let's say we're working on a new project for the upcoming user conference, 2013. Everything related to that project can go into this notebook. It makes it nice and easy to find things related to our project. And it's also a notebook that we might want to share with others to collaborate on this project,so let's go up to the new notebook button this time and call this one user conference 2013 and press return. Now you know by default, this is a synchronize notebook, we can check the settings, Sure enough it's synchronized, and there's our name. We'll click Cancel.
Let's go back to our notes view now. And from here, at the very top of our snippet list, you can click the drop down, and see the various notebooks. There they are, listed in alphabetical order, and we can switch to any notebook at any time to see the contents. Notice all of these new notebooks are empty, the only one with anything in it Is our original notebook that was created when we signed up for Evernote. So that's how we create various types of notebooks. Of course there are certain settings you'll want to consider with your notebooks.
We'll talk about those next.
