7.5 is unusable - infinite pdf indexing failed errors

Recommended Posts

since installing 7.5 (457109) on an iMac running 10.13.6 Evernote will not search and if i try it becomes completely unusable until I force quite.

It will pop up a window saying "PDF indexing failed. Evernote was unable to index the pdf 'xxxxx' because of an internal error' " if i click ok, it just pops that error back up again indefinitley until I force quit, but then the next time i run Evernote it does the same thing

I just tested and have no problems with new pdfs on my Mac
I suggest you reinstall the app.  If this fails do a full resync on the database

Hold theShift andOption keys on your keyboard and click the sync wheel

How about a complete delete of the app, database, ...  The app AppCleaner is recommended for this.
The database will be rebuilt from the servers.

have more data on my system than are on the servers

A very good point and good for you catching that..
You also should have that Local Notebook data backed up in case the database needs to be rebuilt.
