  1. Past hour
  2. Today
  3. As the original poster, you should be able to go back and change the title to add 'solved'.
  4. There are many of us faithful EN Premium users that hope this series reveals your continued commitment to Penultimate. It is almost like EN has abandoned it, and it is a vitally needed app for the EN workflow. Bring back a robust version of it. Please!
  5. Oh, damn. I didn't think of selecting and then pressing the extensions icon. In that case I can do what I wanted. Thanks. I guess the thread should be marked as solved somehow.
  6. Yesterday
  7. Nope. In the iOS app. The amount of lost data in the note is inconsistent. Usually everything in the note since the last device sleep event.
  8. @JMichaelTX Thanks so much - going to test it out today and I’ll let you know how it goes
  9. Hi. Haven't seen one - I think the reason is probably you other comment.. I don't find it too onerous to source pictures from my phone Gallery, but in the event that you want to sent stuff using Evernote I'd imagine that you could create your text in Evernote and copy/ paste from there to your comms package.
  10. I think we verified some time ago that Evernote - sensibly - won't upload two copies of the same image, so 'replacing' one with a smaller copy of the same file isn't possible without getting around the 'official' processes. Respectfully to both the OP and Evernote, the app really sucks as a Photo archive. There are far better options out there, many of them free - and inclusive of editing tools which Evernote does not have. Being a photographer (as well as all-round texpert and hunk) I also don't fancy my pictures going the route (as they do in Windows) of being scrunched into the EXB database and then translated back into the HD JPG files I need to print. . Storage is so cheap these days that I have terrabytes of external hard drive with my Lightroom catalogues and original picture files (mine run to 25MB per time in full RAW format.) I have some photos in Flickr, some in Google Photos, but all the originals are local files. Lightroom has a passable index, and most apps including Google now have AI options that will find all the pictures with water, use facial recognition to ID connections and generally play all sorts of games with content.
  11. Not that I'm aware. Approaching that situation from the other end, you may be better off just adding a single short note each time you add a point. Use a standard tag or title to find them at the end of the day, and (maybe) merge the notes together in created date order (which includes the time) to get them chronologically. Delaying or avoiding syncs may be a good way to lose note content if something more critical happens to your phone.
  12. Hmmn. I'm using Brave (a Chrome-compatible browser) on Windows 10. It's using the Chrome store Evernote clipper. If I select text or images in the page, I get the 'selection' option pre-ticked. I also have the context menu on right-click.
  13. I am sorry, but I won’t be of much help when diving deep into the android client. I am on iOS, that is similar in not using a local database, but probably different in the little machine that runs things in the background. Thus it depends on a working sync as much as the android client Does. If it fails independent from the access path, it seems to be caused by something in the path from server to device, and back. Maybe there is someone else here in the forum whom can help from there onwards.
  14. What are you seeing happen? I'm assuming that we're talking about editing notes via a web connection and having notes, which show in the browser, but haven't yet been sent to the server, lose some or all of the content. In that scenario Evernote's local processes in the browser don't have the access to save content to something which might not be the user's own device anyway...
  15. I am not expecting fool proof way, but definitely would like to see consistency and help with usability to hande those edge case where Evernote needs assistance. What browser & platform are you using? For Chrome on Windows I dont'see "selection" in the list. Instead I have this when pression on extension icon To clip from selection I have select the text in the page and use context menu. After doing so you get something like this where you can't eddit title. tag, notebook etc. Not really. I mostly talking about Evernote browser extensions. Just mentioned that Evernote Web which extensions afterwards links to is not useful either to achieve what I want. Generally I would want to avoid even needed to open it to cpmplete adding a note since that's extra friction.
  16. Or any unnecessary background processes as possible. Recently I found a Western Digital service running in the background comsuing 90+% CPU with a 1.5GB working set. Killed performance on my machine, until I was able to get hold of it and disable the service. Never seen that in an MS application/service, at least not for a long time, unless you could Visual Studio builds that can launch many compiles at a time and will take up as much CPU as you can give it; usually it's fairly polite, but once in awhile it takes over everything. But not like that WD service...
  17. Somehow it is funny that there is an elaborate search syntax, to solve (nearly) any „show me this or that“ issue. But still we discuss that everything should be clickable, intuitive and done „the natural way“. Is sacrificing the cleanliness of the GUI really the better way to handle things ?
  18. When I scan documents with my iPhone, and send them to Evernote, it just creates a new note with the scanned document as content, and the properties (title, tags) assigned to it by the scanning app. No new window. Just when I use the ix500 ScanSnap, a window is created. This is an Evernote window, not a scansnap-app window. So somehow the transfer of the scanned document into Evernote makes EN show a new window, with this note as content. For each scanned document a new window is created. When I scanned a lot, I have some housekeeping to do. For me, scanning things is the most important source to create content in Evernote, followed by Webclipper and forwarding E-Mails into the account. Creating and typing notes in EN I do comparatively scarcely.
  19. Ditto, SSD solved any speed issues I had and being one of the lucky ones. Removing Windows backup files only gave me more disk space, no performance You can improve overall machine performance by turning off as many of the Microsoft background processes as possible , particularly any of the indexing and telemetry "stuff". Using task manager can be eye opening as to what is actually consuming CPU and disk.
  20. I never scan anything, don't use any external apps. I only use the Evernote app on my phone and the Evernote app on the Mac. I only create new notes in the app itself.
  21. I have been having sync issues on and off for the last two years. Mostly it's just the message "last sync failed", but the notes do appear to be there (mostly). It is pretty frustrating to see "failed" constantly though. Clearing app cache and/or reinstalling seems to fix sync issues as well, sometimes.
  22. I can tell you from 10+ years in these forums, that vanishingly small numbers of people actually find, read and understand the search grammar rules. Mostly they find out what works for the Evernote clients they use, and go from there. So expectation are lees of an issue than previous use experiences. There are plenty of software applications that do partial searched by default. Um, 'holding on to' your data is not the same thing as searching it. If you know the rules (whether or not they meet your expectations), you can search effectively (modulo regex, full Boolean filters, infix search, etc.). Bit of a false issue there: the 'warning' termthere is not from Evernote; term. You won't find it in their documentation. ITYM "quarter-dozen"??
  23. I found it mildly bothersome a while ago when I found out that the Windows search is different than the search used on the server, but I prefer the behavior of the of the implied wildcard, so I got over it pretty quickly. I can always do find-exact searches if I need that. Beyond that, I'd be OK with a 'strict' search mode/setting that implements exactly what the search grammar specifies, though I find the relaxed version more useful in general. Or possibly a tunable list of search preferences (e.g. [ ] Use exact search for titles, [ ] Use exact search for text, etc.). But it's not a huge deal either way; I can do find-exact easily enough, or just as easily add my own wildcards
  24. Thanks, Will do. I did reinstall the app, and all is well for now.
  25. I'm a little uncertain of this Windows effect as well. My work system recently start throwing low storage warnings. I only had about 1GB available and Evernote performance had not noticeably changed for me. That said, I haven't had any performance issues since I installed an SSD several years ago (I guess I'm one of the lucky ones), so maybe if you are suffering from this problem clearing storage maybe helps ... don't know, just pointing out that it wasn't an issue for me.
