  1. Clipping web pages is a great feature, but it's now quite tedious to get back to the original page from within the note. The old interface provided a link to the page at the top of the note (which opened in a new tab), but now it's hidden in the note info. That wouldn't be too bad, but the URL is in a text box, meaning we can't click it to go to the page - it has to be manually copied and pasted into a new tab. Please add a faster way to get from a note to the original page! Steve.

  2. Hmm I counter this problem for a while. It seems to me that I can only change the color of the font rather than the highlight when I call out the "show colors" option under format. Does it mean there is only one color available for highlight at the moment?

  3. I use Evernote on shared computers, with family and co-workers. I need to force a sign in whenever Evernote is started, otherwise I am exposing my private notes to anyone that can launch Evernote. This has always been possible for me until I just updated Evernote. There used to be a tick box on the Sign in form that said "Stay signed in". By leaving that tick box blank, you were forced to login each time you started Evernote. Now that tick box is gone. It would be nice to know why, but that is not my real question. I know you can click on the username and select Sign out xxx. But that is not what I want. If you shut down evernote by right-clicking in the system tray then Quit Evernote without first signing out, you can just restart the application and you are right back in, no sign in required. Also if you close the window with windows X button, the application is still running, visible in the system tray. You can forget it is even running, then shut down windows. After restart, again you can get straight in with no sign in. How can I force Sign in after each time Evernote is shutdown, without having to manually sign out first?

  4. I have never heard of this happening before. As far as I know there is no way for Evernote to automatically move your notes to the trash. But, stranger things have happened. Since it seems like all of your "wanted" notes were deleted at exactly the same time, here's my recommendation: 1) Install the latest version of Evernote if it isn't already installed 2) Go to your Evernote trash. 3) Enter "Top list view" if you aren't already in that view. 4) Add the "Deleted" column if it isn't already there. (right click on any column header and select "deleted". 5) sort by "deleted" to sort by the date the notes were deleted. For all of the notes you want, this date should be identical, based on your story, so those should now be grouped together in the list and easily selected. 6) Select all the notes with that date and click "restore selected notes" If that doesn't work, you can go back in time by restoring your Evernote database from a Time Machine backup of your hard drive. This isn't an easy task. Directions here: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/21651-i-need-to-totally-restore-from-time-machine-how/?p=110320 Those directions are slightly old, so there may be some subtle differences (e.g., the location of the Evernote database), but the actual method should be identical. Keep in mind a time machine restore of the database is an all or nothing affair. You cannot restore individual notes or parts of the database, it is the entire database that you are restoring. Ideally you'd be able to solve your issue using my first suggestion and use your time machine backup as a very last resort.

  5. I prefer this method. Going through 75,000 notes manually becomes cumbersome. I would add one thing however - it might be better to select "My Notes' first (available in the view menu). I found that a lot of my duplicates were from someone else's notebook, a shared notebook. I saved a lot of time but just selecting my notes, the notes that I could actually delete. Great suggestion @csihilling

  6. I hate to be the bearer of bad news guys, but, IMO, it is very unlikely that Evernote will ever provide this CSV export feature for contacts. I say this mainly because the contact data is stored as text in the body of the Note, not in separate fields like you need for CSV export. Evernote seems to have switched gears now, and is on to "bigger, better, things", that will "bend the universe" (whatever that means) as announced in their recent 2014 Annual Conference. The only work-around I see is to export your Notes to HTML, and then write a script that will parse the HTML file into separate fields, and then export as CSV. If the contact format is consistent, this should be possible. I've done stuff like this in years past using MS Office VBA. But you could use any language you're familiar with. If you still have the business cards, there are business card scanning apps that will scan, OCR, and export to CSV. Some even export directly to Outlook. Good luck to all!

  7. If you want to automate it a bit, and you have some Excel skills: Go to all notes in list view, select a note and then hit CTRL-A to select all the notes Hit CTRL-C to copy all the note information in the columns Open Excel Paste, match destination formatting Sort by title You now have all of the note list information in Excel and you can write a title compare calculation to quickly find the dups. Copy/paste the title from Excel to EN search bar if you want to fixFairly quick and painless process if you feel compelled to remove the dups, FWIW.

  8. Hello everyone, I too stressed out this morning but then found the answer. In any of the clients (Mac, PC, iPhone, Android) go to the Notebooks tab and scroll to the bottom. You'll see the trash folder there and can pick anything out of it.
