Has anyone encountered a note version conflict? That is to say, you're working on a note, and suddenly at the top of the screen, Evernote alerts you that it's found another version of the note you're working on?

At a fundamental level this content, I get it - working on "cloud documents," if you've made an edit in a file from one device, and also edit it from another, and you've got two edits of the doc and neither is committed, then you have to figure out what version to keep.

My question is: is there any way that Evernote can tell you what the differences are between the notes?

For me, all I could figure out was to bring up both copies of notes side-by-side, and do a visual comparison.

Unfortunately, this file happened to be a long running log of notes, so it was a lot of visual comparisons.


Is there a better way to do this? Thanks in advance.

Yes, note conflicts can occur. Mainly by editing the same note on different devices at the same time.

If it is txt only, copy and paste the content to 2 Word or Pages documents. Now use the ability of these apps to compare 2 documents and highlight the differences. Sort it out what you want to keep.
