  1. Hi all, We are getting increasing feedback from Safari Web Clipper users of problems clipping certain sites. One reason in these cases can be caused by how Safari have chosen to enforce Content Security Policy (CSP) headers. Summary of CSP: - It's a 'setting' of sorts, that site publishers can set that limits what bookmarklets and extensions can do on their site. - In Safari this may cause the Web Clipper to not being able to execute any code and thus not being able to start. - More info about CSP is available here: http://www.w3.org/TR/CSP/ Typical signs of a CSP issue: - When clicking th

  2. Well, to me sync is like save, it can and must be bullet proof. I'm not saying it is not hard, but that it must be designed and implemented right. Syncing of data and files has been around for decades. Problems, errors, user errors, can and will happen. The key is having a system that recognizes when it is out of sync, and offers tools to the user to correct. It seems to me that every time an EN client does a sync it should at least compare the client's note count with that of the EN Service/Cloud, and take appropriate action if they are different.

  3. Thank you for returning this feature. I understand security risks of sharing information in a public fashion and hope that this feature will not be going away. If security is a concern, perhaps just one additional "Are you sure" message would suffice to give the user one last out before committing the share. One can also be reminded that the share can be removed just as easily. This is a feature that is invaluable.

  4. Hello, Is there is a way to duplicate notes, without copying and pasting the content of the note into a new note? Example: I publish a small, local magazine. I am keeping all of my editorial in Evernote, until I am ready to compile to publish for a particular month. There are standard articles that I use for every issue, every month. Each of these articles has a specific header (title of the note) and a structured template with designer notes and footnotes. It would be quite helpful to be able to create a template notebook, and each month copy all of the standard article notes to that m

  5. Yup. When I tell Crashplan to backup a group of folders, it de-duplicates, compresses and encrypts the bits and syncs them up to 3 different locations near and far. If any single bit is detected as different from the source it's repaired, and I'm notified that an error was found and repaired automatically. If it didn't, it wouldn't be trustworthy. A single bit error is the difference between a usable file recovery or not. Trust in recovery in the linchpin to the whole Evernote system.

  6. I am glad that other Business users are pushing for this feature. We moved our entire client files to Evernote thinking that it would be a good idea to go paperless, we could collaborate while a client project is active and we could update through many devices. However, once we were deep into it we realized that the lack of administrative control would severely affect our business. The reason that we need certain Notebooks to have centralized names is that they correspond to our CRM naming scheme. So, the "XYZ Corporation" file or the "Schmoe, Joe" file absolutely needs to correspond with our

  7. I don't think the copy note function exists in the browser version (Chrome). You can download the desktop version if you like and have it there, plus other features.

  8. Great article Alan. Thanks for sharing. From my perspective, the main benefit of Evernote has long been that it's available on almost all platforms. Looks like Microsoft is going after cross-platform and improved sync as major thrusts: Evernote sync used to be rock solid, but for the last few months that have been many reports of sync issues. I have experienced two sync issues (Mac and iOS). If MS gets it right, it could mean real trouble for Evernote.

  9. Yes. I mentioned the postach.io option when the sharing was abandoned. On the surface, it looks like a nice solution. But, underneath, especially for educators who may (against my advice) be recording personal information about students in Evernote (test scores, homework, observations about progress, etc.), there is a big problem -- you'd be granting a third party unrestricted access to everything. The implications are quite serious ethically and legally. And, it almost goes without saying that a third party app(in beta, no less) could drop support for the feature any day without warning as w

  10. I'm moving that way myself. The recent yanking of public notebooks and the absolutely stultifying inertia in fixing bugs and improving Evernote's very basic editor are doing it for me. I don't use public notebooks myself, but the fact they think it's sensible to pull a feature without telling anyone is extremely worrying. Next week they could remove a feature I do rely on and I just can't work like that. I looked at OneNote's Android client yesterday and it's got excelletn pen support (with pressure sensitivity) for my Galaxy Note 3. Last time I looked a year or so ago the Android client

  12. I never used Evernote on my mobile due to speed issues. So I use Google Keep on my smart phone for reminders, appointments, and tasks. I also use my 15 year old copy of GoldMine (upgrade is too expensive). I am still working on understanding OneNote. Evernote is my repository for stuff that happened in the past.

  13. Exactly. The damage is done and I don't trust them anymore. Especially given that they are rolling it back temporarily until they decide to take it away again. Are we supposed to invest our time in creating content for a public notebook just to have them take it away again? I get the impression that the rolling back may have been just to appease us for a while, in that "this will shut them up for a little while and then we will just announce it before taking it away again next month, or within a year, or next year..." Or maybe they will switch that feature over to the business accounts, whic

  14. Yep. This is precisely the problem with Evernote's approach. They have never identified what are "core" features that they will keep and "experimental" ones that may or may not stay in the service. Publicly shared notebooks are one of their oldest features, and if that can be abandoned any moment, just like the mobile site (also old, and also dropped without notice), then is Evernote willing to commit to anything? The service aims to stay around for 100 years, but if they cannot commit to features, I don't see how this app will be feasible for users over the long term. My complaint here isn'

  15. Brief update on this. First off, I want to thank everyone for the responses thus far--we've been evaluating them as they've been rolling in. As noted above, this was done as part of a more thorough set of changes we're making with the shared notebooks experience. We've decided to roll back this change for now, and you should see this reinstated in next week's web release. Again, want to thank everyone for the continued feedback and keep it coming.

  16. I have the same problem. I opened Evernote for the first time in a long time and there was an update available, so I downloaded it and now I get the same error message every 15 seconds. Somethings wrong. How do I make it so that it comes every 10 seconds like Etana? I FIXED IT! I clicked on the Account icon near the top left and clicked "Sign Out (null)." I don't know why it was "null." But then after signing back in, the error message no longer appeared. Hopefully that works for you.

  17. Brickey, an Admin should be able to rename a notebook. Networks are flexible. File names, share names, other company resources. Things need to adapt. I'd argue users shouldn't be able to change the name of a business notebook once shared or used by others, but admins should be able to. I think I gave a pretty reasonable use case as to where it really is broken. To say that someone might be confused is not a good response. You argue that we can tell them to unsubscribe to a notebook, wait for a name change, and resubscribe (along with all of the hard drive thrashing and potentially hours of d

  18. Brickey, your response is disheartening, the entire reason my company switched to Business (from Personal Premium account where we shared individual notebooks) was to enable a centralized library. The above design flaw, together with the inability to be reminded new business notebooks are available in the library, leaves me in doubt about the added benefit Business Membership provides. How do we formally request these features to be added? Cheers, B

  19. It really shouldn't work this way IMHO Brickey. Corporate folders need to be consistent. If the name used to be "WalMart Purchase Orders" and after a few weeks, you change the purpose to "North American Purchase Orders" then the old name is wrong. Furthermore, when you tell people "yeah, grab the new POs out of the North American PO folder in Evernote" they won't know what you are talking about. And unsharing is a HUGE deal, especially as the folder gets large. Say the folder is 3GB in size and you have 10 people sharing it. Two concepts to rename it. 1. Rename folder. EN pushes new name o
