    I nearly re-installed over the weekend as I was getting a bunch of sync errors and I knew that it would be the first thing that support would say on Monday. Fortunately, I got dragged to the pub and by the time I got back the status page had been updated and there were server side problems. Couple of things come out of this: 1. Client side notifications of server side issues are terrible/non-existent 2. I actually was going to do a reinstall!!!! 3. Frickin' Gurus, hanging out, sharing information, helping people. If I was not a lawyer I'd be making all kinds of sweeping generalisations about the moral stance taken by you all. Etc.

    Thanks @gazumped. That is what I was looking for, or rather, wasn't. I prefer not to pre-OCR my files unlike @GrumpyMonkey but it is out of laziness and I don't have an app on my Mac that can do that. I do on my PC, but it is dog slow. Not sure why there is a 100 page limit on a paid service. But I wouldn't expect you company-line toting lapdogs to know. (someone one day not familiar with the recent "guru" talk is going to wonder what the heck is going on in this thread)

    Hi. We're a user forum, so no-one's likely to email you directly. Want to have a go at using words to explain this problem?

    UPDATE: @Matt W., @gazumped, version 7.9.4 is now available on Google Play, and when I installed it this feature was now present and functional. @Amy Smith and others, check it out and see if it works for you. It really is tremendously convenient. The quick notes can be written even if the Evernote app isn't running; they are saved, of course, to the default notebook. Bonus for Samsung device users: S Pen is fully functional in these quick notes! (It isn't in ordinary text notes.)

    > I also don't see how "lawyers" didn't exist prior to the email coming out telling us that August 2nd was the date. We were told on the 2nd, "Stop!" (They caught us literally as we were about to push the button - in fact I think we did and had to quickly unroll it) > Why was there an announcement of an exact date when there were OS bugs? We didn't know of those issues at that time. I have no exposure to when announcements are made (other than seeing them also). I'm sure you'll agree that slipping that date is far better than releasing something that would crash and burn. (And then having all the forum users scream that we don't do QA - see, we do! )

    I would love the option to merge cells together within a table to create a header. I use tables to structure data. I know many will probably say I should just put the data in a spreadsheet and drag and drop that into the note. The problem is that it would over-complicate my existing workflow. I would now need to open something else to get access to data. Anything on the roadmap?

    Thanks. However the reason to use the WebClipper is that cleans up pages of ads etc. Another example from HBR: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s15/nl/418274871/5c5ed329-79c3-4416-a5a4-f9aee3bcfbfc/ - this is killing the WebClipper for me :-( Do we have enough examples to resolve the bug quickly? Thanks Mark

    Hello all, The update for 7.9.4 is in the process of being rolled out through the Google Play Store, which will allow you to add the quick notes feature to your notification bar. If you run into any troubles, please let me know.

    Hi @jk9000, welcome to the Forums! Thanks for reporting this, I am able to reproduce this on my end as well. Our development team is aware of this issue and is working on a fix. Though I do not have an ETA I am able to provide, I can assure you we're working diligently to fix it. There are two work arounds at this time: Drag the image to the desktop, then drag it into the note. If you have Evernote's Web Clipper installed, right click on the image > Evernote Web Clipper > Clip Image I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns!

    Using Evernote Premium (303244) on Windows 7 pro x64 and dealing with an Excel xlsx attachment: I am dealing with similar things here. The issues and reasoning behind the behavior is well described above. Thanks for everyone's input, it helped! Evernote seems to update the file saved within the note immediately when I do a save but, I have noticed that sometimes my system fails to close out the "EXCEL.EXE *32" process when I close the Excel application. The files get left behind in the attachments folder when this occurs. If I open the task manager (Ctrl-Shift-Esc) and kill the process this triggers Evernote to release the file (Filename.xlsx) and the file is automatically deleted out of the attachments folder (Evernote does keep a backup of many of the files there as a .backup file, these can be deleted if all is well). My system is unpredictable as to when it will close the Excel application but not kill the EXCEL.EXE *32 process. There must be something residual that Excel is still trying to deal with? After I kill the process manually Things function properly again and I temporarily don't get the file duplication with the [1], [2], [3], numbering. Yay! The residual temp files in the attachment folder don't seem to affect the the file saved to the Evernote note, they just make a mess.

    I just updated W7 Evernote on my PC. As is always the case, I used the admin account for the update to the latest version. Then I went back to ONE of the 'normal user" accouonts where I use Evernote. So far, my Evernote files have been moved TWICE, (from user to admin, then from admin back to user). HOW many times will this happen? Every that I use Evernot under a different user on my PC? This looks like a major FAIL in anticipating how your users behave.

    I think this is the fault. I quotet not the .exb-file size. I verify this tomorrow and tell u the result. Thanks for now!
  18. 1 point
    When you gave the 5GB vs 500MB, you weren't quoting .exb sizes? The .exb file contains a complete copy of all the data, including attachments. Attachments are extracted to a temporary folder while being viewed/edited

    My understanding is that your data is stored in the service for which you signed up for: Yinxiang Biji = China and Evernote = US. If a US person visits China, they still connect directly to the Evernote service in the US (where their notes are stored). The same is true for a Yinxiang Biji user who travels to the US. It shouldn't matter where you are. It matters which server holds your account. They are separate services using the same software (as far as I know). Presumably, you would install one app and switch between two accounts, one located in China and the other in the US. I don't know for sure, though, as I don't have a Yinxiang Biji account. As for sharing, the files would end up on both servers, wouldn't they. That makes sense to me, anyhow. The best people to ask are probably the Yinxiang Biji support staff. They surely have dealt with similar questions in the past.

    Every day or two, I select a bunch of my scanned stuff and set Adobe to OCR it. It'll do it all for you overnight, if you'd like. It's slow and extremely labor intensive, even on rather high end devices. But, I'm asleep when it works, so no worries Obviously, my lack of righteous rage about this, and my suggestion of a workaround outs me as a running dog lackey of the capitalist silicon valley elites. But, that should have been obvious by my post count, which either shows that I care about the community, or that I get paid by post count. If only it were the latter...

    One thing I really miss from Springpad was how they handled different Note Types. I wish Evernote would incorporate Checklist Notes, List Notes, etc. A Checklist Note, in Springpad, used to have very specific functions. Each line had a checkbox to the left. You could rearrange them. Completed ones dropped to the bottom (I think; if they didn't actually do that, it'd be cool if Evernote's did), stuff like that. OneNote on mobile also does a good job of this, mostly. The implementation is cumbersome but I like the attempt. EDIT: Another great example is Google Keep. Images added to show what I mean.

    Hi @kabela. At this time this is a known issue with the Windows application, and our development team is working on a fix. So that I can get a ticket created for you and get a copy of your log and other information, I'm going to convert this thread into a support ticket. I'll follow up with you shortly. Thanks!

    UPDATE: I just installed v. 7.9.4, now available in Google Play. This adds the capability of adding a quick note from the Android notification bar (In the Evernote app, Settings > Notifications > Add notes from notification bar). That's convenient in and of itself; but to my delight I found that when writing such a quick note, the S Pen works, not only in the title but in the note area itself! It's still not working in regular text notes, but this should be some relief.

    Hello, @Dubhead, On iOS you can already use Passcode/TouchID to encrypt/decrypt your notes instead of entering the master password. Go to Settings and enable "App Access Control". I will check Android part separately. Cheers, Ilia

    lol. it's funny because it's true. eight years now, and i can expect the same advice at the end of every ticket. i literally got it again this morning. *sigh* i said no thank you. i wouldn't report it if it wasn't a bug, we finally get to the point where they can reproduce it, and then they want me to reinstall (taking several hours or days to finally download several gigabytes of offline notes), but the bug is still there... i think it was 2011 that this became a weekly thing (my posts are around here somewhere). i usually get along well with the support folks and i appreciate their hard work, but whoever decided back in 2008 that deleting and reinstalling was a legitimate way to solve a problem was very mistaken -- sure, it actually does work sometimes, but the analogy would be throwing away your car every time the windshield got too dirty to see through. a better solution would be to design the problem out of the car (windshield wipers and wiper fluid). then, support wouldn't have to give those silly instructions.

    This does not seem to address what I am talking about. There is only ONE user database, which is for ME! This did not happen until version 6.2.4. Do you understand the changes with the most recent version? But here's some good news: When I signed into ME on Evernote, but under USER2 W7 account, Evernote didn't move the data from USER1 to USER2. I have not yet signed into the ADMIN(only one of these W7 accounts) yet. Maybe things have settled down?
  32. 1 point
    The database is stored on a per-Windows-user basis. There is no way to move all user databases at the same time. Windows does not allow that. (It would be a major security issue). So when you updated on the admin account, it did not move from user-to-admin - it moved the admins local copies from %LOCALAPPDATA%\Evernote to %USERPROFILE%\Evernote. So the database move will happen for each Windows user that you log in.

    Hi @aquadolphin, welcome to the Forums! If you open Evernote and select View > Customize toolbar, are you able to click and drag the "New note" button into the toolbar? Please let me know how this works out for you.

    BUG (I'm assuming): Multi-selecting tags doesn't apply across all selected tags, just the one that happens to have been right-clicked for the options menu. Example: Select multiple tags, then right-click and click "Add to Shortcuts." Only the right-clicked tag is added to the Shortcuts, versus all selected tags. Do the same thing but click Style. Only styles the one tag right-clicked. If this is desired behavior, the UI is misleading. But I really hope it's not intended behavior as doing tagging edits one at a time is very tedious.

    Hi Jeff, So now I understand why my attachments folder contains only a small part of all my Evernote attachments And even more important: Now I know that I can delete these files without being afraid of losing some info. Thanks a lot for clarifying this issue Oded.

    Thanks for asking our opinions, but.... My answer to #14: You don't need a survey here. Just choose the most popular list-making apps (Wunderlist, Keep, Any.do?) and incorporate their features into Evernote if you want to satisfy customers -- it's been eight years now, and we still have bugs in the basic lists -- lists that aren't even remotely as capable as competitors' ones. Frankly, I'd be happy if basic bullet lists worked correctly. I'd like to see improvements, but I am seven years past expecting any, so I think rather than throwing even more money at the intractable problem (lists have been "fixed before" and I can live with the poorly performing bullets), you would be better off tackling more pressing issues such as developing better encryption options (encrypted notebooks) and adding selective sync to the desktop versions. These last two are critical, in my opinion, while the lists are not, especially at this point.

    Hi Everyone, We experienced a service outage earlier today which affected the ability for some of our users to successfully sync or access their Evernote account. Our team has resolved the issue and all systems are back up and running. You can stay updated on any service disruptions by checking out the Evernote Status webpage If you're still having any issues with your Evernote application syncing, please us know.

    @janesymtecHere's a comparison of Premium vs Business that might also help. With any subscription including Basic, you can move notes between shared notebooks as long as you have edit permissions to those notebooks. With Evernote business, everyone in the business will have the ability to create, use, and modify tags inside a business notebook as long as they have edit permissions to the notebook. An admin will be the only ones who can fully delete tags from the business account. It's possible to have both you and your boss as admins on the business account. Hope that helps!

    Hello, Just installed Saferoom on Windows, OS X and my Android phone (Nexus 6P) and tablet. This application works a treat and is certainly a nice addition to Evernote security (or general lack thereof). I would like to humbly request for future iterations of the mobile client applications at least (both Android and iOS) to utilize biometric hardware as option for master password. Being able to utilize this again adds greater convenience to end users who don't necessarily want the Master password logged in for any length of time on their device and can more simply use biometric authentication on demand for speedy decryption process to initiate. Otherwise, so far so good and looking forward to your progress on the aforementioned desktop app for processing larger quantities of notes. I would be interested in this as I have a number of very full local notebooks with all the scans from our old paper file cabinet that contain sensitive data that I would like to encrypt and keep in cloud ideally. Thanks, Dubhead

    Hi. The only major differences I'm aware of between notebook owner and shared-to colleague (with edit/invite permissions) are that the colleague can't manage the owner's account - ie create new tags / move notes around / create new notebooks. You'd need your boss's log in to do that for him. Sharing a notebook with someone just means you allow someone else to see a set of notes, edit the existing ones and maybe invite someone else to look at the results. It's possible to get around some limitations if you share a notebook back to the first account - you can share new notes to your boss. (Basic accounts have exactly the same sharing options as Premium accounts.) It sounds a little like overkill for two people, but the business account might solve your problems. If you become administrator of that account, both you and your boss can have your separate premium account for drafting and personal records, and both of you can share the information in the business notes and notebooks. Evernote have a Certified Consultants program - it might be worth you finding one nearby to discuss this further...

    Yeah, not in the toolbar yet, but shortcuts are available so you can avoid menus. Ctrl+Shift+Up formats the selected text as a superscript and Ctrl+Shift+Down does the same for subscript.

    “I‘ve forgotten who it was that said creation is memory. My own experiences and the various things I have read remain in my memory and become the basis upon which I create something new. I couldn’t do it out of nothing. For this reason, since the time I was a young man I have always kept a notebook handy when I read a book. I write down my reactions and what particularly moves me. I have stacks and stacks of these college notebooks, and when I go off to write a script, these are what I read. Somewhere they always provide me with a point of breakthrough. Even for single lines of dialogue I have taken hints from these notebooks. So what I want to say is, don’t read books while lying down in bed.” - Akira Kurosawa

    When viewing a note in a separate window the Note>Move to Trash option is not currently listed with 5.9.9 or any of the V6 betas. As @michael.freidgeim mentioned, there have been recent changes with these options. I need to confirm if the removal of the Note>Move to Trash option was by design or not. @EFG, I have converted your post into a support ticket and will follow up with you via email. I will update here when I something to share.

    I use the method outlined in David Allen’s guide and prefer it over The Secret Weapon (TSW). I find TSW needlessly complex and like the simplicity of the method DA’s PDF explains. As David Allen has said, "One of the keys to making GTD work is to keep it simple––because simple is more sustainable. I've seen many people overbuild their systems and processes to the point where it would take 5 cups of coffee, the perfect moment in the day, and totally clear head space to successfully work it. It's a set up for failure. GTD is your game to play. Set yourself up to win." This has never been the case for me with TSW. Too complicated, IMHO. I also am of the opinion TSW tries to do too much. You shouldn’t need “Now”, “Soon”, “Later” tags if you’re doing a proper Weekly Review. It’s my very humble opinion that TSW actually sabotages one’s weekly review - giving the user the false sense of security that the system is helping you prioritize. It never can - only you can. And the only way you can properly prioritize is by intimately knowing your task lists. And you can only intimately know your task lists by reading through them every day, and refining them during your Weekly Review. And it talks about sorting tasks by tag in the Note List view but that only works for the first tag that shows up... so needless to say, I never got TSW working. I got the setup in DA’s PDF working in twenty minutes. What DA’s PDF boils down to is creating a notebook for each context inside an Actions stack. Then add one note per task. Add any necessary info, files, etc. to this note so everything is in one place. In your Agendas notebook, add one note per person and keep a checklist inside it noting what you need to address with them. Same with the Errands notebook - a note per place with your shopping or errand list inside that note. That’s pretty much it. Here are some screenshots of mine to give you an example. I found the PDF worth the purchase, and I re-read it quarterly to make sure I’m greasing my wheels and keeping my system tuned and focused. One thing I do differently (or rather, one thing I do that’s not mentioned in the PDF) is use Evernote’s Reminders function for high-priority items. Paying bills, soft but important deadlines (like prepping lunch for the next day). That way I can click the Stack name in my sidebar and see my high priority items at the top. This often helps me figure out in which context I should plop myself to chug through some work. Hope this was what you were looking for! Happy to answer any other questions.

    Hi. Losing your email address isn't immediately critical, except for the reception of reminder emails and other notifications; but why can't you change the premium account to use another email address? If you want to allocate the address currently in use for the basic account, change that one first to free up the address and then use it for the premium account. https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209004757
