MartinM 4 Posted February 16, 2017 Share Posted February 16, 2017 Sometimes, notes in Evernote get changed in a way that cannot be undone using the UNDO function. This even happens if note's text is changed, eg. copying text sometimes it cannot be undone. Other times a note gets marked as changed, updating its 'Updated' timestamp, without really changing anything (like happened to me just now ... again). Now I have a note with some change, but I have no way to find out what the change is and I have no way to throw away that change (whatever it is) and restore the original 'Updated' timestamp. Now the dirty note sits there in my client app, waiting to be synced to the server and I'm scratching my head wondering, why I cannot simply just cancel the edit, how come such a basic function is not available? Unless it is very well hidden. I would like to suggest two functions, that should have been part of Evernote client from the beginning: revert note's local changes -- just fetch the note from the server and replace the local version in EN database view note's changes (including meta data changes) in some diff fashion bonus: allow the user to select, which changes to keep and which to throw away (eg. keep text changes, remove changes to tags) I'm using Evernote for Windows but this functionality would be useful on every platform. Not to be confused with note history, all I want is to be able to not sync accidental edits. Link to comment
