  4. Evernote for Mac 6.13.1 GA

    Shure, if there is someone at Evernote looking into this problem, i am happy to share the .enex with them. Yes i can preview the outer PDF as attachment, but the whole note is being shown as PDF-preview, not only the PDF itself - also in the Preview-app. Overall that still leaves me with an uneditable note ... To make things worse ... Evernote has converted the note to a PDF ... even in EN-Web it shows as one PDF
  5. Fan runs full speed!

    This is definitely excessive. Did you just make an update to Evernote? Sometimes there can be a brief period where CPU usage is high while Evernote is recreating indexes it needs. If it continues, I would: Restart your Mac, then start Evernote, and examine CPU usage. If high usage continues, then you can try a simple app reinstall: Move the Evernote app to the trash (this should not affect your data) Download the version you want Install Evernote. If it still continues high usage, then the next step is major surgery: See How to Completely Remove and Reinstall EN Mac If you are uncomfortable with any of that, or have questions, please post before you take any actions. Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
  6. Fan runs full speed!

    I quit Evernote and restarted it. Here is a screenshot of the Memory usage.
  7. Fan runs full speed!

    Seems high; mine shows 2.2% You should also look at the Memory used Also, check the Evernote activity log I don't know what's going on, but it would be a good idea to quit Evernote; then restart
  8. How to change the name of a notebook in Mac

    My method of changing a notebook name is Access the Notebook Page Right-click the Notebook Select Rename Notebook Documentation at Organize-with-notebooks >>I mean, the Notebook Settings option is right there and greyed out for some reason! I'm not seeing that. Can you post a screenshot My Evernote version is 6.13.1 >>Over time, the Mac desktop version of Evernote has become more and more obtuse and dysfunctional. I'm not aware this rename process has changed over time. It's the method I use. It seems quite functionable to me; not sure why you see it as obtuse (annoyingly insensitive or slow to understand)
  9. How to change the name of a notebook in Mac

    Over time, the Mac desktop version of Evernote has become more and more obtuse and dysfunctional. Why can't I just right-click the notebook and change the name? I mean, the Notebook Settings option is right there and greyed out for some reason! Stuff like this is causing me to use Evernote less and less - I found myself taking whole notes out of Evernote the other day and putting them in Workflowy just to make things easier for myself. I've been a Premium subscriber for almost four years and now I'm seriously looking at other tools all the time.
  10. Fan runs full speed!

    I am running High Sierra and my version of Evernote is 6.13.1. I am a Premium user. I have noticed that my fan is running at high speed all the time that I am using Evernote. I have enclosed a screenshot from Activity Monitor showing how much CPU Evernote is using. To me it seems like a lot, excessive even. I have a 2014 MBP with 16G of RAM and 1T SSD. Is this normal? Even now when I am typing this Evernote is open but I am not using it but still the fan is running and running. Thank you for any help, Judy

    Can you post a sample of the email you're receiving Would this be the 1st line support people discussed here
  12. I agree with Noteworthy and N Allen. I previously commented that the scrolling issue was FIXED in version (305825) Public because I did not have any issues. BUT I just discovered today that the comment by N Allen is true. If I have a list of check boxes and press enter at the end of the most recent entry in the list, the next checkbox is put in place BUT YOU CANNOT SEE IT because the screen does not scroll down. Really not a BIG deal, but it should not happen. I have not entered "tables" in Evernote so I have not experienced the issue with the TAB key mentioned by Noteworthy.

    In reponse to @evernotehelps on Twitter I submitted a support ticket. Now all of a sudden I'm spammed with email from bots on What happened here?

  15. Evernote for Mac 6.13.1 GA

    Focusing on this one issue If you post a .enex export of the note it would allow follow up into the issue A work-around to allow editing the note You should be able to right-click on the pdf and select "View as Attachment" If the inline display isn't working, I would "Open With" an external app; Preview or Accrobat Reader
  16. Evernote for Mac 6.13.1 GA

    PLEASE stabilize the EN-Editor !!! Those small bugs that are in the Editor for months now, are a bit of a plague. Please track them and solve them one by one! But now there is new level of Problem starting to show up !!! I have one more or less complex Note with several PDF's within tables. One of those PDF's in this note is now overlaying my whole note in EN-Mac 6.13.1. I cannot edit the note anymore, except for removing the PDF which kills the whole content of this note!!! EN-Web shows this same note with the PDF on the correct position as it was always. Are you going to substantially fix the EN-Editor soon or do you intend to kill Evernote ... ??? And please don't bring up the "advice" to step down to an older Version of Evernote - there is no stable Version available - each one has it's own problems ... It is now 2.5 years ago (v6.0.11) since i started to note which versions of EN-Mac i did install ... each one of them promised to solve some problems but introduced new ones! What keeps me to stay with Evernote at the moment are my 3'800 notes and a good basic concept ... but there is only little hope left that there will be stable EN-Mac one day ... I stopped to recommend Evernote to my work-companions and friends - instead i recommend them to start with alternatives like OneNote, DEVONthink, Bear, ...

  18. Hello, I submitted my app to the App Center back in January and have been told many times that App Center submissions are on hold for an unknown amount of time. Could an update be given on when submissions will start to be reviewed again please? Thank you
  19. @DTLow I was thinking maybe automatically putting it into the presentation mode. I have reports that I need to write up for clients and thought it would be nice if Evernote had this feature, so I won't need to use PPT anymore to present my notes. Thanks though!
  20. The font, Gotham, used in the web app is great. I set mine to Calibri. I'm using Evernote for PC. Is there a way I can get a hold of that font so I can also use it on my PC? I supposed installing that font on a Mac should be the same.
  21. Student discount

    My advice is to open a support ticket at Contact Evernote Support

    Perhaps you can contact support and see what they can do.
  23. Why Is Evernote Still Highly Buggy? Nov. 2017

    I've accumulated 48,400 notes over the past 9 years in Evernote. By using tags and a structured title, Evernote search can find specific notes quickly and efficiently. It does what it was originally designed to do.
  24. Automatic Text Template

    Tools in the upper left corner of the Windows Desktop
  25. Automatic Text Template

    So I'm on the desktop version. I cannot find any buttons for options or tools? Am I missing something haha
  26. TherealTVC - I absolutely agree with you. Some of the "remedies" are a bit lame and like you, I do not wish to turn off all the privacy settings. After all, they are there for a reason. As I stated above, I have tried most of the remedies suggested and at best they work for a very short time, as in minutes. It seems clear to me that no one from Evernote is monitoring this discussion site or as you point out, they don't care. I will look at Bear and Devonthink also. I have also been using a product called Yojimbo and it works very well. Good luck.
  27. Good for you. I'm a fan of installing the version that works best for you. I'm not into the "weeping and gnashing of teeth" we see in user posts when they encounter feature changes or bugs >> Delete your old Evernote, Rename/move the following directory: ~/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote The app AppCleaner is recomended for completely removing Evernote, ensuring you're not mixing versions in the components >>Backup your notes! In particular, your local-only notebooks All users should have proceses in place for backing up Local Notebooks. Evernote will automatically rebuild databases from the servers - except for Local Notebooks and unsync'd notes
  28. I did something recently that made me so happy I decided to share. I downgraded from Evernote 6.13 to 6.9. Let me tell you why - In Evernote 6.10 the old text editing code was replaced with new (Javascript-based, I believe) editing code. This was done to pave the way for new enhancements, and likely to create a common code base for the editor across all their platforms. It's the reason why tables got a lot more fancy soon after the 6.10 release. Further, somewhere around 6.12 Evernote started trying to synchronize your notes in real time. So, version 6.9 was the last version before all that started; it was released September 8th, 2016. Here is why I'm basking in the glow of "outdated" code: Memory use no longer grows without bounds. 2+GB was normal by the middle of the day previously. Now, I sit at a steady 400MB of memory use. Power use is no longer through the roof (which I think came with the continuous syncing). macOS 'Monitor' displays a metric for energy use, and those numbers are most interesting in relation to each other. Entering plaintext on the newer EN clients, the "Energy Impact" would sit around "66". Now, with 6.9, the average is well below "1", and editing is always under "5". Much more concrete, I can work the day at the library and leave with over 50% of my battery left. Previously, with 6.13, I was leaving with ~30% left. After a couple of hours after starting Evernote, my cursor doesn't stutter as I type Text editing with bullets doesn't do inexplicable things sometimes. Tables, although less pretty, happily resize with my note window My search bar is spacious My Atlas is back Want to do this too? Backup your notes! In particular, your local-only notebooks. Delete your old Evernote Rename/move the following directory: ~/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote Install Evernote 6.9. You can get the official binary here: Run Evernote 6.9, log in, get all your settings the way you like it, let it finish syncing Import any local-only notebooks Uneasily enjoy as you hope Evernote fixes their Mac client faster than they decide to block your old client! What could go wrong? Evernote is changing a lot in their new clients, Sync might slowly become incompatible is non-obvious ways. Data loss/mangling is a possibility Notes created in the new/old version might start to work less well in old/new versions. Evernote may just decide to block older clients There was a version 6.9.2 released, which was probably released for a very good reason, but I couldn't find that official file. 6.9 (or 6.9.2) aren't without their own bugs. Choose your poison! There might be security issues? I'm not sure the real risk here, but prior to being burned so badly with new EN releases, I would have said always stay up to date with software. I have no knowledge of security problems in older versions. There you go. My experience has been flawless. I was happy to see that the tables I created in the new client look just fine (better, in fact) in the old client. And, to be clear, this is an attempt at constructive criticism of the current Mac client situation. I'm incredibly entrenched in my Evernote ways, but I'm suffering from death by a thousand cuts with the current client. At some point the pain of reworking my workflow and foregoing some EN features is going to outweigh the pain of trying to work with the new client. Good luck! (?)
