McNeves 0 Posted November 20, 2011 Share Posted November 20, 2011 Hello, folks.I just had a problem with Evernote and, after struggling to find an elegant solution, I ended up working around it, but it got me thinking of a nice improvement for future releases.Before going on and telling you guys what happened, I must say that I lost at least a good hour looking for a solution in the forums, but didn't find anything of the sort.I was checking a note on the windows based Evernote when I accidentally modified a note. Trying "CTRL + Z" didn't work. It was a single note and nothing major, but I didn't want to re-create most of its contents, so my first though was: "OK, I didn't sync, so my original note is intact on the servers and on my other devices."Ok, problem is, whenever I synched, this broken version would be the latest one, so it'd overwrite everything else.Here comes my suggestion - feature that doesn't seem to exist - why can't we choose what will be overwritten?I mean, I knew my healthy copies were in the server and in my other devices, so why isn't there an option in Evernote that says "Let's synchronize, but let's PULL the changes rather than PUSH it"? This way, whenever I know a device has a wrong version of my notes, I can set it to sync and discard the changes it has in itself, simply copying from the server the old versions.As this is not available, I had to go all the way to make a change in that same note on another device and sync both, intentionally causing a "conflict change" and erasing the wrong one.But that would be much more difficult if I had many wrong notes, or if I simply didn't know which notes were wrong.What do you more techie guys think?It would be a nice feature to have, wouldn't it?Cheers, boys.McNevesP.S.: If this already exists, please excuse my ignorance and let me know how to activate the process.
