Note conflict and note can't be saved

Recommended Posts

I really hope somebody can help me with this, because I love using evernote..

I've got these two issues that really bothers me..

No.1 problem : Today I can't write anything in any of my notes. It's says something like "Note can't be saved"

No. 2 problem : Sometimes, an ekstra note gets created for a note a allready have. Right now, I got 5 notes which are exatcly alike. It says "note conflict"


So what can I do about these problems. I can't use evernote right now because of this(No.1) and my notes often creates copys of my notes all the time..

Hi.  Always useful to know which version of Evernote and your OS you're using,  and what's the exact error message you're seeing.

I've been using Evernote for a long time and I don't believe I've ever had a 'can't save' error.  Have you used up your monthly upload allowance?  Is the note a very large one - exceeding the max size for your level of account?  Does it have any 'odd' punctuation in the title?  Have you tried creating a new note and copying the content into a brand new note?

The 'conflict' notes are evidence that another device is saving copies of your notes to the server while you're working on the same note and creating a different version.  So these 'copies' aren't complete duplicates - they're different versions of the same note.  You need to check to verify which one of them is the most up to date.

In general when working on Evernote - I'd say make sure you have synced and closed down the app on any other device you may have been using,  and that you sync a new device before you start editing notes.  Switching between two devices while editing is a recipe for serious confusion...

The "can't save" error is now gone and I can use evernote again. I haven't done anything, I just suddently works again. Hope it won't happen to often.

But the problem with the copies are still a problem. I've got evernote on my phone but I don't use it very often. Maybe I sometimes got two windows open with evernote in my browser at the same time. I will stop doing that. But it also does it sometimes I haven't done that.. I will try change the sync settings on my phone and then sync manually evertime I use my phone, if that is possible.. Thanks for the replys
