Warn about sync on close


Recommended Posts

I use Evernote between my PC, iPad and Android Phone. But i find it annoying that it is constantly making copies of my notes within the note saying there was a conflicting entry. I think this is because I close my PC version without clicking "sync". I want to suggest that it either auto-sync on close or allow a feature to warn you that you haven't sync'd when closing the application.

In Evernote for Windows, in Tools --> Options --.> Synchronization, you can check "Synchronize changes on exit". It is the second option from the top. That  should make Evernote synchronize every time you quit it.  I do not know if this will solve the problem you are having, but the option is in there.

That setting does not do anything. At least not when you close the app with the x in top right corner.

That's because when you do that, you're not actually shutting Evernote down. Use File / Exit for that.

Hi.  Not exactly a bug;  the option says 'sync changes on exit' and works correctly if you File>Exit.  Not sure if Windows would allow a closed app to continue to use system resources - you'd have to re-open it to quit out properly.  If that is possible though,  it would be a nice feature enhancement to continue syncing when the window is closed.   I voted for that at top left of this thread...
