Restoring versions from note history - FIXED

With a Premium subscription, I have access to Note History. Today I tried restoring previous versions of a note in the Windows desktop program. It's supposed to import it into the Imported Notes notebook. I tried more than one version of more than one note, and nothing ever imported (even after syncing). However, when I went to the Web beta and looked at Note History there, I was able to use the Restore function to recover an earlier version of a note into my default notebook. So it looks like the function is working in a slightly newer way in the Web beta (there's also an Export to .enex option there), but no longer working in the Windows program for me. Is anyone else with a Premium subscription having problems with it?

History is not working at all for me, nothing, nada, zilch, bubkis.  Geez.  Someone make a change on the web beta and hose access from the desktop?    I am amazed.  This cannot be be good.

You want to report it?  I'll flag @Shane D. here just in case.

Must be a Windows thing
Note History is still working on the Mac platform; viewing versions, downloads a .enex file,  imported into a local notebook

Thanks. I find that I can view previous versions of a note in the Windows program, but AFAICT selecting Import does nothing. Sometimes it showed a download progress bar, but if an .enex was downloaded, I don't know where, and it wasn't automatically imported. If @Shane D. doesn't have a word for us here, I'll raise a support ticket.

Win 10 EN 6.24 as OP - agreed. Import not working,  though I get a very brief flash of a progress bar, nothing  is downloaded.  I can see previous note contents so could (presumably) copy and paste,  though I haven't tried that.😒

Hi All,

Thank you for reaching out!

We have confirmed the issue you have described, and are working to get it fixed as soon as we are able.

In the meantime,  you can export the previous version from Evernote Web and then use the desktop app to import it.

I hope this helps, and let me know if you have any questions!

The latest update (v. 6.25.1) fixes this problem. Each previous version of a note imported from history goes into a new Imported Notes folder with a sequential number (Imported Notes [2], Imported Notes [3], etc.). Not sure this seems necessary, but the function is definitely working again.
