  3. Here is some more: https://evernote.com/blog/evernote-migration-to-google-cloud-platform/ The data is encrypted on the way (https-type, a common encryption standard on the internet), and on the servers by Googles own data management. Because https can be attacked by „man-in-the-middle“-setups, you should use a VPN when on a WiFi you do not trust (= all public WiFis, and maybe some closed ones as well). Plus activate 2FA on your account. When the new European legislation on data protection got effective last year, I have signed a data processing agreement with EN. By this putting my (clients) data into EN rests on a legally sound foundation. EN is certified to do this, amazingly some other popular cloud services are not. If you want to have special data very secure, you should use an additional service. For example account data with passwords etc. should not be filed on a service like EN, the same with credit cards, online banking keys etc. . I use 1Password for this stuff, that comes along with 1GB of encrypted cloud storage for „safe notes“. This encryption works differently, it is encrypted „end-to-end“, so the decrypted version is only created on your own device while using the app.
  4. My preference is clearly to have my pdfs inside of EN and on the server. This is the only way to have synced access from all devices, and a working search function. In other words: This is what EN is all about. If size matters, like with a BASIC account, there are some tips: If you create the pdf yourself, try to do your own OCR. OCRed pdfs tend to be smaller. And with BASIC, the EN server will not OCR it for you. If there is no OCR, try to reduce resolution. One way to do this is to „print“ the pdf on a desktop, and reduce resolution in the printer settings to 150dpi. On a Win10-PC I use Adobe Reader to show the pdf, and PDF Complete (free version) as a „printer“ to create the reduced-resolution-file. Only issue (with Premium): OCR will work less precise if the resolution is reduced. Collect your pdfs outside of EN for a while, then buy one month of Premium, and use the upload limit of 10GB to get the stuff there. Even when scanning and filing a lot, I did not ever hit the 10GB-limit. After the month, you can go back to basic, even when by this you loose some very nice search capabilities. But all your notes will still be there, and accessible. Just take care not to make changes to large notes, this will be regarded as a new upload.
  5. Try the Belgian beer then, the little brands. The monasteries there used to brew their own, and this made a tradition of good, strong stuff in many variations - long before this got reinvented and called „craft“.
  6. Sorry, but this is simply not true: You can choose „Location“ in your settings, and the location will be recorded (if available) and as well shown in the information section of a note. On my iPad there is a little Google map showing with a pin where the note was created. So if you have the locator running on your device, and if you have your settings set, you will record the geodata of where you created a note. What this thread is about is an overview map-style showing the creation location of a number of notes. This existed and was taken out of the functionality 2 yrs ago. If you would like to have this back, place your vote. Photographers hint: There are a number of programs where the geolocation can be added to pics, if not already in the EXIF-information. This can be done in after-shot processing, batch-style (select all pics from one place, and add the geolocation). Because the location of a photo shooting will often not be the same place as the location where a note with this photo inside will be created, I think tagging the picture itself is better than relying on a program like EN to geotag the „picture container“. But if wanted, see above.
  7. Looks like Evernote doesn't listen to its subscribers, because now in the note it doesn't even document the location of the creation of the note. I used to always like that it gave that information!!! Very disappointed that they got rid of this information!!!
  8. Me? Fortunately not. I'm pretty tame -- I'd guess I average about one beer a week, certainly no more than 2, plus the occasional glass of wine. I do try to make it a good beer., though
  9. Thanks to both #pacman and DTLow. The answer is that Evernote info is secure on the Google servers via one of the encryption options (I'm guessing with customer-supplied encryption keys, most likely). So I now have confidence to upgrade from the Basic to Premium subscription. Thanks!
  10. Hi, I have read this information. So the ECT-Training 2019 course is no longer required or used for anything? I though it was used for becoming an Evernote Community Leader? I guess from what I read above, it seems this course exists but no longer means anything, Ok. From what has been written the only real program that seems to exist now is the Evernote Certified Consultant and I must be considered for this program. What other courses do I have access to as a Community Member? Thanks for the information.
  11. Yesterday
  12. If you want to search the contents the PDFs have to be in EN, otherwise just as well to have them in the cloud linked within an EN note. If you want the PDFs searchable and are worried about storage, OCR the PDFs yourself and put them in a Local notebook. Disadvantage here is no access on a mobile device. If you need that access you should probably sign up for a paid subscription.
  13. Not native to EN. You can roll your own approximation by copying the note list (have created and size in the list)and pasting the results into Excel. Some date arithmetic and pivot table later you should have an answer. But nothing simple in EN.
  14. You can do this yourself by going to help and selecting Go to my account page.
  15. You can encrypt an individual note by selecting the text and right click to encrypt. But this is on a note by note basis and has issues on top of it that Evernote has not fixed. The primary one is that if you have ANY markup like a bullet in the text you want to encrypt, you cannot encrypt the text. It's a bug that Evernote has known about for a couple of years and it has not been fixed. Maybe their new editor this year will address it, but that doesn't solve the primary issue you mentioned. I believe encrypting notes is not part of Evernote's strategy. Encryption has been a request for several years. I believe they want to leave open the option to read and monetize the content or maybe they are doing that now. So encryption on the server would defeat that. There is an app called Standard Notes that does encrypt notes for example. But competitors that encrypt on the server are few.
  16. @moab90245 If you have any Local notebooks back them up. Move your DB to the desktop as a backup. After everything has been removed per the above before you sign in go to the Options tab and set the DB location there. This will download and create a new DB in the location you specified. Then import any local notebooks. When comfortable delete the backup. This is from memory of how it once worked. Not sure if anything has changed.
  17. I forward a copy to EN of the sent mail. A bit of a pain but keeps the header information. I have a couple PhraseExpress hotkeys to clean up the forwarded email and in some cases add notebook and tags. FWIW.
  18. How about we push the rest of the note back to where it used to be at the left margin. Then the table would be automatically indented. Same result and we pick up some real estate.
  19. Same experience. To me the Windows app has more bells and whistles within itself and it is easier to get done what I need to get done in my use case.
  20. If you do want to delete the notes you could tag them with something like !Del.YYYY.MM. Then a periodic tag:!del.* sorted by tag should yield a list of notes to delete by month.
  21. Works like it does on other IOS apps, press - release - press select.
  22. This would be super useful when cooking, I hate it that every time I look at my phone, it’s locked again. And I don’t want to change the auto-lock time for my entire phone, just for evernote.
  23. I would love to be able to copy a text style and paste a text style as you can do in google and keynote etc. alt + command + C for example and alt + command + v. It's great to be able to paste text in with the same style but to not be able to copy and paste text style in a doc without copying the text is a real bummer. integrating this shortcut would save us so much time! thank you!

  25. Hi. Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I'm still trying to understand how you have an @Evernote.<anything> address. Do others use this address to contact you? Regardless, it seems that you need to change the email address on your account, which can only be done via Support. You could try using the 'guest' login on that page, or contact https://twitter.com/evernotehelps
  26. Patch notes for the latest version of the Windows client ( ) mention a fix for the jumping cursor in shared workbooks. I can confirm that with this version I no longer experience the jumping cursor. Instead, the cursor now just disappears. It is as though while typing a note, the application loses focus and stops taking input until clicking inside of the text area. I struggle to consider this an improvement.🤨
