callistabr 3 Posted November 25, 2014 Share Posted November 25, 2014 Hello everyone,Just updated to the latest version today or yesterday. I'm on Windows 7. I have EN 188.8.131.523. I'd like to revert to the older version because I've been dealing with this change and its consequences all day. First I was consolidating my notebooks and I guess I was clicking too quickly and accidentally deleted my notebook with all my notes in it. I'm fairly certain that I had selected the correct notebook (empty) and it somehow jumped to the wrong one - but as I was working quickly and can't be sure, I can't blame EN 100%. However, I'm not sure how I would have clicked on a different notebook other than the one I was working on at the time unless my screen moved or something. Anyway, I was able to go into my online account and move all the notes into a new notebook and save them. I also went into my Windows client before syncing and moved all the notes that had been deleted into another notebook but when I synced, those notes disappeared and only the ones I had moved in my online account were still there. So everything was fine (I guess - I sure hope I didn't lose anything). Then I was editing my numerous tags. I had over 100 tags and was in the process of simplifying them. I was doing so, working along, deleting unused ones, renaming, removing tags from certain notes... And then I right-clicked on one tag that had no notes associated with it, clicked delete, and *poof*! All my tags disappeared. ALL of them. I went to EN online and they were still there. Thank goodness. I renamed every single one of them. I added a 2 to the end of the names. A very cumbersome process. So that when I would sync with my desktop client, they would be changed online and would transfer to my local machine. So I went to my local machine and synced - and it seemed to take forever - and sort of hung - and then I closed it out because something was wrong. It should not take that long. Lo and behold, I went to EN online and my tags were all gone. All the ones I had spent an hour or so renaming. My last hope is my Mac EN. Earlier today after the notebook fiasco I exported all my notes from my Mac to export files. I'm going to try to rename my tags somehow on the Mac and see if they'll sync to the web EN. Otherwise I'll try to import the enex files to the Windows client. This is way too buggy for me. There is no way that right clicking on one tag and selecting delete should delete ALL my tags, and then a failed sync should push the changes to the web version (which was NEWER). Something is seriously wrong with this Windows client. And, no, I didn't start a support ticket. I'm a free user (and at this rate no plans to become a premium user because I can't trust the system) and last time I used their support system to report a bug I got the standard non-response. UPDATE 5 pm: I tried importing my exported enex files and the notes imported but not the tags. So I went to my Mac, made sure wi-fi was off, and renamed all my tags. I duplcated all of my notebooks, calling the duplicates "New XXX". Then I created a new note in my New Inbox, and applied ALL the tags to this new note. I then exported all my notes to a new enex file called "All my notes". Now I'm syncing and watching as my tags disappear. ALL my tags are gone. Now they have been wiped out of my Mac EN. I do not understand this. In fact, I don't even have a Tag section on the side anymore. Now I have to go and recreate all my tags again. I was wanting to use tags instead of notebooks but deleting one tag on one platform has totally oblitreated ALL my tags on ALL my platforms. That's unacceptable to me. I had come to rely on EN so much. I'm highly disappointed because I set aside this day to organize EN and all I have done is try to recover my data. Tags is broken, broken, broken. UPDATE 5:10 pm: Just tried importing my recent export of all my notes. Tags information was not saved. Although I did get a friendly reminder that all this syncing has eaten up my available bandwidth for this month and would I like to upgrade to Premium? Um, no thanks. Tags are completely gone for me. Have to start over from scratch. Good thing I only have 500 notes to go through. Link to comment
