notebook is greyed out and does not sync

Recommended Posts

first time I see a notebook greyed out in Evernote for Windows (8.1).

Right-clicking, the dialog tells me it's a local notebook...

How'd that happen that it doesn't sync with my other devices (iphone and ipad), and how do I fix it?

Many thanks

See the Help on local notebooks. You may have accidentally created this notebook by doing File > New Local Notebook instead of File > New Notebook--they're easy to confuse. A local notebook by definition is local to the computer it was created on; it doesn't sync to other devices. Unfortunately, once a notebook is made local, you can't change it to a synced notebook. You'd have to create a new synced (normal) notebook and move all the notes from the local notebook into it.
