restore from trash with original dates

Recommended Posts

Intending to delete a contiguous range of notes, I inadvertently selected 4500 notes because the current record was not what I thought it was. As soon as I pressed delete, I recognized the problem, went to the trash and restored. Even without the major mess I made, it doesn't seem to me that restoring a note from trash should change the "updated" date. Or, at least the option given to keep it the same or update.

I have asked before that they implement an improvement to have an optional "are you sure?" before a delete command is executed.  It is too easy to delete a record simply by brushing against the delete key and not know you have done it.  

You would not have had your problem if this improvement was made

I'd imagine (haven't tested) that a note loses its history when sent to Trash as well.  Don't know if restoring the note also restores the history,  but in addition to the above I think it should.  Basically please either re-think the whole process or just add the 'are you sure' step because a minor mistake can be a major problem to fix.  Remember to VOTE folks if you support this - click the counter on the top left of this page.

This issue is another reason why adding a date code prefix YYMMDD to each title is beneficial.

There are several other reasons to use a title date code.

Until Evernote programs a solution, the title date code can be used as a safe guard.
