    As JMichael pointed out, Evernote cannot do an AND + OR search together. The link he supplied gives a lot of information on the subject. Here is how I would attack this issue - not pretty, but it works. Keep in mind that: * Creating a tag for many notes at one time is easy * Deleting a tag is even easier So... 1.) I would search for all notes that have the 2,3,4, or 5 tags: any: tag:tag2 tag:tag3 tag:tag4 tag:tag5 2.) Then assign a temporary tag to all the found notes master_tag_2345 3.) Finally, search for the two tags to find the notes I want tag:tag1 tag:master_tag_2345 The master_tag_2345 could then be deleted with just a few keystrokes (or keep it for future use)

    Sorry, but no. Evernote does not support full boolean search, which is what you are asking for. See Full boolean search in Evernote

    The controversy of your opinion is in your second sentence. You just joined Evernote, and it did not suit your needs in terms of security - no time wasted, - move to another solution. That's cool, and another good customer decision argument for Evernote to prioritize encryption. Most of the people discussing this particular topic are with Evernote from the beginning, they have more than 2000 notes and when information security things heated up, followed by data leak in Evernote, and then in some other major companies, we all understood the importance of protecting our data. Now it is easy to jump from 0 notes in Evernote to zero notes in OneNote, in fact, it is exactly 10 minutes. However, it is really difficult to move from 2k notes from one product to another. I am now testing OneNote and even after only 2 years of Evernote, it is very complicated for me to get used to different workflows. My point is that all those guys protesting in reality don't have much time and this is why they put pressure on Evernote - for now, the cost of moving to another system is higher than the cost of using workarounds for data protection or not to store private data at all. Moreover, this topic was and is a source of inspiration for some third-party products, so it is definitely not rubbish.

    Hi Ilia, I agree that the note history may be helpfull te recover, but it would be much better if we can prevent it. I just realized that Evernote should solve the problem by implementing the long requested ReadOnly mode, see https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/26224-request-read-only-notes/page-2 Maybe you are in a better position to convince Evernote to implement it? Thanks,Eric Sorry for a late reply, read-only mode is an awesome idea, and I would vote for it. We are not related to Evernote, and, of course, if Evernote would have asked our opinion we would love to help them in this. A bit off topic: I am convinced that Evernote guys are reading this forum, and also I am sure that no day goes by as they raise the same concerns as you in many product meetings. Based on my experience building huge products and organizing dispersed teams I can tell you that it is extremely difficult to prioritize which features go to product. I think Evernote lost a bit a direction what exactly they want to do, what is Evernote exactly? Usually, the core issue is in product management (or product owners) - Evernote needs a "feature diet", I hope that new leadership team will solve this (I bet they will). You need to have a little bit of patience, things are moving slowly in big companies, but they are moving.

    How to Restore Selected Notes from Mac Time Machine to EN Mac Ver 2.0 Nov 23, 2015 This question seems to come up often, so I thought I'd post these steps to a new thread that is easily referenced/viewed by all. Please post below if you have any questions about this process, see any issues with it, or have suggestions to improve it. One very important concept to keep in mind is that if you restore Evernote from a backup that is older than your current account, when you sync after the restore the data from the EN Cloud will overwrite all Notes that were changed since the backup. Thus, if you were trying to restore specific Note(s) to a previous version, the previous version will be lost when you do a sync. So what you have to do is to export to ENEX all of the Notes of interest AFTER you restore from backup, and then sync, and then import these ENEX files back into Evernote. These are the steps to do exactly that. Sync EN Mac OPTIONABLE -- Export to ENEX all Local Notebooks you have, with each NB to a separate ENEX file. This is an extra safety precaution in case you have to do a clean install. All of your sync'd Notes will be downloaded from the EN Cloud Then you can import your Local NBs from these ENEX files Disconnect from Internet to prevent Evernote from further syncs Quit EN Mac (app and menu) OPTIONABLE -- Backup everything Evernote (app and data) This is an extra safety precaution in case everything becomes lost/corrupted You will most likely not need this backup See Location of Evernote Data Folder for EN Mac. Note that TM does not support the backup of a specific folder. It does a backup of everything, except for folders/files you specifically exclude. You can use the Mac Archive utility to create a compressed zip file of your Evernote Folder, but you need to open Archive first and set its Preferences to output the zip file to a location outside of your Evernote folder. Best location is to an external drive. Rename the existing Evernote folder (see Step 5.3) and the Evernote.app to "ORIG." & current name. So, for example, it would be: ORIG.com.evernote.Evernote Do a TM restore of the entire Evernote data folder & app from when you know the Notes of interest were still there (If you can't find your backup, see instructions below to Show Hidden Files) Start EN Mac Find your notes and export to ENEX, with each NB in a separate ENEX file outside of the Evernote folder (like your Documents folder) (be sure to check the box for "Include Tags") OPTIONABLE -- For extra safety you might also export these Notes to HTML Exit Evernote (app and menu) Rename the Evernote folder (which was from the restore) and Evernote.app to "OLD." & current name. Rename the original Evernote folder & app from Step 6 ("ORIG.") back to the original name Start EN Mac Import the ENEX files you created in Step 9. This puts them in a Local Notebook. Update/Restore to the Original Sync'd Notebook Move them into a sync'd Notebook OR If the Note(s) still exist in a sync'd NB, but need replacing, you can copy/paste the contents from the restored Note into the original sync'd Note. This will maintain any/all Note Links to the original sync'd Note. If everything looks good, connect to Internet and sync. Note that all Notes added or changed in your sync'd NBs will go against your monthly upload allowance. When you are sure everything has been updated properly, you can delete the Notes imported to the Local NBs in Step #15. Optional: I would zip the ENEX files created in Step #9, and put them on an external drive for safe keeping, then delete the ENEX files. Proceed with caution! Do not start this process until you fully understand all steps. I have NOT actually tested this process, so be careful. If you can't find the backup you want in TM, you might need to tell the Mac Finder to show all folders/files. How to show hidden files in Finder on OS X If you use OS X 10.9 Mavericks or OS X 10.10 Yosemite, follow these steps to show hidden files in Finder: 1) Launch Terminal. 2) Copy/paste or type in the following command defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -boolean true ; killall Finder How to hide hidden files in Finder on OS X Follow these steps if you want to hide the files and folders you previously revealed. Note this works with OS X Mavericks and Yosemite. 1) Launch Terminal. 2) Copy/paste or type in the following command defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -boolean false ; killall Finder References: Evernote Backup and Restore Options How to back up (export) and restore (import) notes and notebooks using ENEX files Time Machine The Best Mac Backup Software of 2015 | Top Ten Reviews

    Hi everyone! We just released a new beta for Evernote for Android v7.5. You can get the beta by following the instructions here. This beta includes two exciting updates: a brand new note editor, and an updated camera with auto-capture. *Note Editor* If you read our blog, you know we’ve been working on a brand new note editor. If you use Evernote on Mac or Windows recently, you’ve already seen what it can do. We’re excited to announce that we’re bringing this improved writing experience to Android. What’s new: - Tap to edit - More conistent looking content - Better tables, lists, checkboxes, etc. Known issues & workarounds: - No ink support yet. - New editor only available for KitKat and above, and phone (not active for tablets). - If you run into issues when deleting checkboxes, reopen the note and try to delete again. - Playing an audio file may scroll the note to the top. To avoid this, tap on the text above or below the audio file, then tap to play. - Long tapping images to Delete or Annotate is not available. Use "cut" to delete, switch back to the previous editor to annotate. We’re looking for bugs, usability issues, and any other feedback you can throw our way. There’s a lot of work left to do on the editor, but we wanted to get the improvements to you as soon as possible *Camera updates* We’ve introduced auto-capture, which automatically recognizes and captures documents, post-its, and business cards. We’ve also fixed the issue where Samsung Note5 photos are low quality. So get the beta, give these features a try, and let us know what you think! Thanks in advance for your help and feedback. Best, Karen

    Thanks Goggin. That's good news... Last weekend I just uninstalled Firefox and invested some time to move my workflow to some Chrome-based browser (called Iron browser). Actually I miss one particular addon in Chrome, that I used to use in FF (Diigo toolbar). But, maybe now I will download FF again in the next weekend to try version 6.1 in FF. btw. I just learned to like the Youtube video bookmarking feature in Webclipper for Chrome. Hopefully FF supports that too

    Just create a local notebook or notebooks and then move the notes to the local notebook(s) through highlighting and dragging or right clicking to get the Move to Notebook option. No need to rebuild your notes, just move them. I would consider using the Export to ENEX function to create your own backups of your notes.

    If you're looking to store HD pictures see - https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/88727-thumbnails-not-generating-for-a-few-notes/#entry383388 the thread says that Evernote 'dislikes' pictures over 13MP ...??... it's apparently better to select (or process to) a lower resolution than put HD pictures in the database. You don't need anything better than 96DPI to see an image on screen or up to 600DPI to print a quality image. The relationship between DPI (dots per inch) and picture resolution in MP (megapixels) is not a simple one - google 'what is the relationship between dpi and resolution' for a lot more information on the subject! Your main issue is probably what you intend to do with the images - if they're effectively an online catalogue, smaller is definitely better.

    I just got an auto-update of my Evernote Web Clipper to version 6.1 this morning. Checked http://addons.mozilla.org and see that v6.1 has a release date of Released November 23, 2015.

    It depends on a variety of factors How big are the images? What is the format? and most important How many? My personal belief is that Evernote is super for text and small photos, but it is not the best method to store large high-quality high-resolution photos. Flickr or Google Photo or other photo cloud storage sites would be more efficient.

    Hi. It's important to look at all the usual suspects before abandoning all hope. Although some Win 7 users have a bad experience, it seems unlikely, given 150M users worldwide, that all Win 7 users have been having the same problem. In a way, better of they did - Evernote would have a higher priority on fixing whatever is the issue! So. Empty the Trash notebook, fix any 'Conflicting changes' notifications you may have received and sync. Make sure the web trash is also empty and sync any connected devices. File > Exit the Windows account / restart the device and log in again. Any improvement? If not, copy your Activity Log files to that point and raise a support request. Depending on the response, and your timescales, consider uninstalling and reinstalling Evernote. You should backup your current database - no problems expected, but just in case. Reinstall as Administrator and log in. If that fails to improve things, consider re-downloading your database. You'll already have a backup (as above) but you'll need to export any Local Notebooks to ENEX files so as to be able to re-import them to the downloaded notes. This process may take some time if you have lots of notes - minutes or hours, not days - so do it when you have no other time pressure. (A book and a hot beverage of your choice also help! - I've done this a couple of times.) If you don't otherwise know the status of your workstation, I'd also suggest checking how much disk space you have left / checking your drive(s) S.M.A.R.T. status and running any diagnostic or memory checks you can, plus an internet speed test. Basically make sure the device is not getting in the way of improving your user experience. If all the above fails, then yes, you share the Evernote Curse of Win 7 - though I'm still not sure that's a 'thing'. Finally - try the web app!

    I don't know if this can help: I had a similar problem, upgraded to El Capitan, Evernote worked fine the first day, then today it would not start (spinning ball). I tried several times launching (through spotlight) and force-quitting with no luck. Finally I went to the Applications and option-started it (option (Alt) + double click) and everything went swimmingly: Evernote opened instantly and was as responsive as usual. I don't know if the option-start did the trick or if it was just a matter of trying several times, but now I can open it as usual without a problem.

    Thanks a lot for kind words! We are happy that you are happy! We actually have built one. However, the issue is that we used an interpreted programming language to built this version. Interpreted language means that you can see source code, it is converted into machine commands during execution (JavaScript can be an example). And it means we cannot protect our Evernote Developer account credentials. Now, we have one idea how to solve this. Instead of using our developer account data you can generate your own developer token (this can be done by any user of Evernote) and use it in Saferoom Linux. This token will limit your activity to your account only, but this is the intention, isn't it? We will investigate this a bit more, but here how it stands now. We have not yet figured out how to protect our own dev accounts in Linux.

    Thanks for your response. So this may go to the wish list for the Evernote desktop app, to be able to process existing JPGs :-) I've found Genius Scan for iPhone to process existing images from my foto library. This, however, is a slow process - loading to the library, transfer to the phone, working through hundreds of images cropping the images, and not getting lost ... If anyone else had a similar issue and found a software for OSX, please let me know.

    Thanks @JMichael After google for a while, I found many users from China had the same issue: An SSL error has occurred and a secure connection to the server cannot be made. I think the rules changing of GFW is the reason for us. After using a SOCKS5 proxy, I can sync the notes now.

    Did you look at the web at all during this process to see if the updates made it there, though I'm guessing from the narrative probably not? Kind of hard to determine if it was a sync issue, either Android to server or server to desktop. So best to check the web before going too far. Also helps to determine bug versus timing. You could do a search in you EN data base to see if you have any notes containing "conflicting" or a notebook with a similar name. If so It could be your note. If a paid subscriber you could use the history option to see if you have a version of the note with the two lines. Risk is that however you got into the condition, making changes to the desktop version made it look like the current version and it overwrote the phone. But again, hard to tell at this point.

    OK, I suspected that might be the case. Thank you for clearing that up for me.

    For those using Microsoft Office 365: there is a functional workaround (to the disastrous loss of functionality introduced when Evernote blithely neutered their Outlook Clipper Add-in Tool) ...in other words, how to (somewhat quickly) transfer multiple emails into Evernote, keeping them separate and titled by email subject line. (Something Evernote USED to do quite gracefully.) Export emails (in bulk) to OneNote (ON), then, in Evernote, import from OneNote. Viola! 1) In OneNote: create a notebook called "EN" (Leave ON Open) 2) In Outlook: Highlight the emails, click "Send to OneNote" button in the toolbar. 3) Choose the EN notebook from the popup screen. Watch the emails populate ON. Leave ON open. 4) In Evernote: File ->Import -> Microsoft OneNote 5) Check the notebook box "EN" 6) Click OK...emails will be imported to EN 7) Check bottom of Evernote Notebook list for new entries, highlight notes and move them to notebooks as needed, delete temporary Evernote Notebook. 8) In OneNote: delete the notes and close OneNote program. This will work until the EN wizards figure out how to recapture the magic possessed by their ancestors. -Gargling Sand

    Looks like they fixed this one today, at least for me, with 7.9.1.318289 on my iPad Pro.

    Hi. I run two laptops both with Evernote on Windows and both quite usable. I'm sorry your experience seems very different - as do, as you point out, a number of others; but Evernote can't wave a magic wand to fix what they don't understand. If you;re having a problem, please raise a support ticket, send your Activity log and go through any reinstalls and checks that they ask you to complete. If they can't find a fix, at least you'll help narrow down why this is happening, and maybe you'll have your wish sooner rather than later...

    Evernote offers the following tools to organize your Notes: Stacks -- can contain ONLY NotebooksNotebooks -- can contain ONLY NotesNotes -- no sub-notes, but can contain images, attachments, links to other Notes. A note may belong to ONLY one NB.Tags -- cuts across Stacks/NBs. The same tag can be assigned to multiple Notes.Note linksOrganizing Evernote is a broad topic, and has been extensively discussed. You might try doing a google on "evernote organization" This will show discussions from this forum, as well as independent articles/blogs. If you are new to Evernote, you will probably benefit from the "Evernote Help Center" link at the bottom of my post. Evernote doesn't really support hierarchical organization like folders in your PC or Mac. Although many of us would like hierarchical structures like sub-notebooks, Evernote has declined to provide these even though they have been requested for many years by many users. So, to get the most out of Evernote, you will need to learn how to use Tags. See The Benefit of Using Tags

    Click on the notebook, and then click the info icon in the top right corner. You should be able to rename your notebook there. (Windows computer 8.1 Don't know if this works for other types.)

    A couple of things I recommend trying: 1) Try installing fromt he Safari Extension Gallery pages instead https://extensions.apple.com/details/?id=com.evernote.safari.clipper-Q79WDW8YH9 Click the install button and then restart Safari. 2) If you do a manual install from www.evernote.com/webclipper it will download a file that you need to open to install it. The download location may differ depending on user preferences so I would search spotlight for: 'Evernote.6.2.4.safariextz' which is the filename of the Web Clipper.

    Same issue here. Os x - 10.10.1 Evernote - 6.0.5 (From appstore) I found in the web a trick for that: >>Finder >>Applications>> >>*Right click on Evernote*>> >>"Show Package Contents">> >>Library>>Login Items>> >>*Right click Evernote Helper*>> >>Make Alias>> >>Drag Alias to Applications>> >> menu>> >>System Preferences>> >>Users & Groups>>Login Items>> >>click +>>Add Evernote Helper Alias Font: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1729944 It's a bit ugly, but solved the problem.
