Note Missing after Encrypt Selected Text

Recommended Posts

Last night, to protect sensitive information, I opted to enable the "Encrypt Selected Text" feature. Everything was fine; I set up the passphrase, saved it with a hint and then exited the program for the evening. Today, I tried to open the Note but I was unable to enter the passphrase. Then the box that you enter the code in disappeared! Any insight or possible solution is appreciated and welcome.

Typically if the pass phrase doesn't work it's not right.  The box disappearing means you inadvertently typed over it probably after the pass phrase didn't take..  I have done this before, thinking I have the dialog open but I have actually just highlighted the box.  And away goes the encrypted text.  Being a premium subscriber I can get the previous version back.   You can subscribe for a month if the information is important to you.

So I have to be a paid customer to recover the data?! Oh well, guess I'll just have to manually re-enter the information. A pain but I don't use Evernote enough to warrant paying for, yet, another subscription. Thanks for the info; appreciate it.
