    Hi All, @Comeba222 @DTLow@CalS@gazumped Thank you for letting me know. It appears a recent update I implemented changed the attachment limit on certain groups. I've readjusted the attachment limit, so let me know if you still encounter any issues!

    Hi... Tried EN many moons ago, then went with OneNote but EN's cloud and accessible anywhere features are bringing me back...Enough kudos... Is there a way to mark a note as "read-only" so I cannot accidentally erase or modify it? Thanks. Alex

    Filterize is a third party service that adds automation for our Evernote data. This feature triggers with a tag and makes our notes read-only More information at https://filterize.net/blog/using-filterize/115003411651-here-s-how-easily-you-can-protect-your-notes/

    The first message should be pretty obvious... The path to H: isn't there. The second one means you're on a network or removable drive. Highly not recommended because of how sqlite file locking works. If you can't open EN (even the login screen is enough) to get to options, the database path is stored in the registry: HKCU/Software/Evernote/Evernote/ EvernotePath="fullpath"

    Correct; Evernote/Mac maintains a full copy of the database

    Currenty Evernote/Mac maintain a full database copy. There's no option to change this. This does take up storage space but I'm not seeing it causing a slowdown in editing. The discussion has been moved to the Mac forum

    Hi, I'm wondering whether it's possible to upload and store our notes in the cloud rather than locally for Evernote on Mac. I really like the feature in the Evernote ios app, since I have a large set of notes and they take up space and the Mac app runs slowly sometimes when I'm editing. Thanks!

    UPDATE... Since installing EN v6.16 onto my new laptop, using @gazumped process, I wanted to provide a review of the experience. From a Time perspective - It still took me a good 30 minutes to copy and paste the Old database folder (14 GB - 4,148 notes) and that was using a fast USB3 SanDisk Ultra flash-drive ...so not sure if just syncing files (downloading data) from the EN server with a fresh install would have been quicker or very much longer...so perhaps little time benefit!? From an Settings Accuracy perspective - I noticed that my Tool-bar icon-configurations were NOT maintained/copied across, including shortcuts in sidebar v toolbar (i had them in Toolbar). Plus the font settings reverted to default rather than the one I had selected on my Old previous laptop. Conclusion - Given I still had to check, and adjust things manually, In future when migrating/installing EN to a new PC, I will just use my normal system of fresh installing and reconfiguring the options/settings manually from some previously taken screen-caps. Cheers

    I am definitely in the "lots of PDFs but they're relatively small" camp, and use tags and searching without much issue. However, I definitely have a lot of manuals, genealogy information, etc. in my database that can be scores of pages inside one PDF. When possible, I actually try to break those out into separate PDFs and separate notes to help chunk it out into better lumps for organizing. I also rely pretty heavily on the annotation summary you can enable when annotating a PDF. It adds little snippets at the top of the PDF showing the edits and annotations you've made and what page they're on. So, when I add PDFs that are huge (like the one below), I make sure to edit and annotate it to show the bits that are important in the PDF at the top as a point of reference. Example:

    Apologies in advance - this is going to be another plug for my 'smart title' setup. I agree with @Don Dz that adding PDFs to the mix does pollute the search pool considerably - I have a variety of PDFs in my database including the odd 400-page support manual, so a general search on more or less any word or phrase gets quite a few (!!) hits. Most of my searches now are "intitle:<keyword>". I've also had a late conversion to Filterize where (forinstance) I now have a dashboard (and auto-updated table of contents note) labelled 'recipes' which will feature all the notes I have with food preparation details. It runs off all the notes I have with 'recipe' in the title, plus all those tagged 'recipe'. I'll be able to tweak it further if I find that notes are still missing from the list. (I found the main annoyance with Evernote's search grammar is remembering exactly how I found all those notes last month using advanced syntax. Having a predefined search running all the time saves me a grey cell or two.) I'll try to explain all this in detail at some point in a proper post - something to look forward to in these long winter (if you're in this hemisphere) evenings.... 😎

    I would like to be able to move noted between the different notebooks within Penultimate for better notes management. This way you do not have to create a new notebook on the fly and manage the notes at your convenience. Very desirable feature on some other notes apps

    I use Evernote on 4 Macs and 2 iOS devices, and I tend to use each computer and device for very different purposes. But when the default-notebook setting is changed in one copy of Evernote, it gets changed on EVERY computer and device! Why?!? Why can't the default on my iPhone be my Household notebook, while the default on my personal Mac is my Personal notebook, and the default on a work Mac is a work-related notebook? Due to this archaic limitation, I spend a lot of time moving dozens of notes into the "correct" notebook. I realize I could change the default before capturing notes, but when I do that, I forget to change it back — or I'm then in the position of having to check the current status every, single time I use Evernote. Please, please, please make this a client-specific setting. Please! :-) Disclaimer: I realize that with software, there's always someone, somewhere, who prefers the existing behavior. So, to protect those users, this would ideally be a setting we could enable/disable in the preferences. Thanks.

    I realise I'm about 15 months late, but I have the same problem as the OP and stumbled upon this thread while searching for an answer. I use Evernote on 2 phones (personal, work), 3 laptops (personal + 2 work) and 2 tablets (both personal). I'd really prefer work devices to use one default notebook, personal devices to another, and the tablets to a household notebook. The suggestion of using multiple accounts (even if they were free) seems excessive. That makes it significantly more complicated to achieve a per-device default notebook. Now I'd need to manage multiple passwords, login emails, etc, and which account is the one which actually gets billed, etc. Evernote is meant to simplify my life! Finding notes is never a problem, as there's the "All notes" view (which can show you everything created recently at a glance), and the search is pretty stellar. But getting notes into the right notebook in the first place is an extra conscious step which Evernote could solve so easily for me if only it had a per-device default notebook. The reason I use and love Evernote is that it takes the tedious labor of managing documents. Having to manually file each note is plain tedious. Yes! This implementation would suit me perfectly. Don't explicitly prompt users to nominate a default notebook per-device. It's obviously a power-user feature. Just provide a preference for it in the menu. Even better would be something like the proposed action rules stuff [https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/22086-rules-engine/] where you can specify a set of rules to define which notebook a note will go into, and then you could base it on all sorts of things including the device you're on. I imagine that's way too advanced to ever fly in Evernote though.
