Duplicate Notes get created automatically!


HemantVasishth

Idea

I was simply typing in a note for approximately 2 hours. When I was done editing it, I could see that 3 duplicate notes got created automatically. Each of the duplicate notes was created at different times. For example if I wanted to write 100 lines in my note. When I was done, I would see multiple notes created with the same file name automatically - one with all 100 sentences, 2nd with 70 sentences, 3rd with 50 sentences, etc.. I never created any "duplicate copy" of any note 'manually' myself deliberately.

I am afraid this unpredictability in Evernote should not delete my precious note(s) altogether someday! Please have a look at the timestamps of all the notes (encircled in red) in the attached screenshot and suggest.

OK, if you're using Evernote in Chrome, you may want to look a the Web client beta forums. There have been previous reports of this issue, going back almost a year:

https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/120346-en-web-notes-duplicate-every-minutes/

https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/124418-note-is-automatically-duplicated-when-i-edit-a-note/

I haven't experienced it in my use of the Web beta. I suspect it may relate to the browser--EN seems to have issues with Chrome; I don't know about Safari.

This is still happening on the web client (Chrome). do you have plans to fix this ? Or I should use OneNote or some other software?  Having to delete duplicate note every 2-3 minute isn't a feasible work-around.  P.S.  I'm on LAN, not wifi.   

Does this work on other browser?

This issue also came up for me a few weeks back in the Evernote client on OSX. 

10.24.3-mac-ddl-public (3041)
Editor: v134.0.17043
Service: v1.41.4
 

This seems like a major problem and is cluttering my system with so much junk. Some notes are randomly duplicated just once, others not at all, and some 5+ times. I've relied on Evernote for many years and this is the first time I've ever had a significant issue. Can someone from the Evernote team suggest any workarounds?
