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.
Over time as you continue to use Evernote, the number of notebooks you have showing up in your notebooks view will obviously increase. Let's switch to notebooks now. Here in list view, we'll see a list of our current notebooks. Not too many, but we're just getting started. We'll see the default notebook that was created when we started up Evernote and created our Evernote account. You'll see the other notebooks that we've created so far. And at the bottom of the list, trash, which is not really a notebook but it does appear on this list.
Let's talk about making some adjustments to our notebooks, beginning with renaming. This original notebook, which is based on username, could be more descriptive if we used a different name, so let's do that. The easiest way is to simply right click the notebook and from this popup menu select rename notebook. That highlights the contents and we can simply type right over it. I'm just going to type in David's notebook. And press return, there's the new name. Now there are a number of other things we can do by right clicking a notebook. For example, if we go down to user conference 2013. Eventually, once this conference has come and gone, we'll no longer need this notebook.
Right clicking it, you'll see an option to delete the notebook. Anytime you delete a notebook you see this warning, and it's a good warning, because any notes that appear in the notebook are not actually deleted with the notebook itself. They're moved to the trash. So you'll be able to go get them and place them in other notebooks if you wanted to. You can't undo this, though, so let's click Cancel. We're not quite done with this notebook, but if we were, we'd simply hit Delete and that notebook would no longer appear on our list. Click Cancel, and keep it for now.
Other things we can do, let's right click the Inbox and go down to Notebook Settings. These are the notebook settings we saw when we first created, notice that it's the default notebook, it's a synchronized notebook. The only thing we can do here is change the name of our notebooks, so it's another way to rename a notebook. Just type in something else. I'm going to keep Inbox, let's click Cancel. Another thing we can do to stay better organized, once this list of notebooks begins to grow, is to create stacks, a hierarchy.
So for example we might want to keep all of our personal notebooks together in a stack called personal. And all of our work-related Notebooks in a Business Stack, for example. Let's do that. David's Notebook belongs in the personal. I'm going to right click this, and notice we can Add to Stack from here. There it is. And the only option that appears off to the right on this little popup menu is New Stack. We don't have any Stacks so the only option is to create a new one here on the fly. When we click this the new stack is created.
You can see David's notebook is indented. And the name of the stack by default is simply notebook stack. We're going to rename that of course, so let's Right Click it and choose Rename Stack. Let's call this one Personal, and press Enter. Now we have a personal stack. All we need is a business stack to put the business-related notebooks into. And, we're going to start with our user conference 2013. We'll right click it. Now, when we go to add to stack, notice the options. Personal's there, and new stack is also an option.
So we can move it to an existing stack or create a new one on the fly. We' need a new stack, so I'll select it. Again we're going to Right Click the notebook stack and rename it to Business. When you press Return notice the list is getting smaller now because we have a couple of stacks. As we create new notebooks we can add them to the stacks to keep things organized. When we want to focus on business related items we double click the stack to expand it. We can double click it again to collapse it or you can Right click and choose Expand stack, Right click and Collapse. There you go.
Same thing for personal. Double clicking, and we can have them both expanded at the same time. But to really stay organized and focused, we probably expand one at the time. And you can have several stacks. I'm going to collapse both of them. That's a nice neat list. So, those are some of things you can do with existing notebooks to help you stay better organized and to help you understand what it is you're looking at. Renaming, deleting and adding to stacks will help you in the long run.
