JDG Lab 0 Posted July 2, 2012 Share Posted July 2, 2012 I recently lost a large update to a note, and have reproduced the problem. I started editing a note in one place via the web, and then continued editing that note in a different place, via the mac app (where I also force a sync as a matter of habit). Upon going back to the web version in the first location several days later, and continuing to edit, I suddenly realized that a log of the info that I added on my Mac was missing. I thought this wouldn't be a problem -- that the two versions of the note would get flagged as a conflict to be resolved, and I couldn't straighten it out later. I've run into this once before, when attempting to edit the same note on my computer and my phone; I resolved the conflict, and carried on.However ... as best as I can tell, when using the web, the "edit" (pencil icon) and "done" button toggles the local mode with the synced cloud mode. This is sort of like having a temporary local app to edit a note. No conflict was created, however; when one of those "apps" is the web version, that version apparently trumpts all other versions of a note, and no conflict is created.Obviously the work-around is to remember to hit "Done" everytime one walks away from the Web version of the app, but this isn't very fool-proof (e.g. me). Is there any chance Evernote could save me from myself on this one? Link to comment
