    Here is a link fro Fujitsu in regard to converting the software if you aren't able to find an install file for the Evernote Edition. http://scansnap.fujitsu.com/global/evernote/index.html

    Hi All, Tags are one of the most popular and powerful ways to organize notes, but the way tags work varies depending on which version of Evernote you use. In this video, CEO Ian Small chats with Sahand, a product designer, about how tagging is becoming more consistent across devices. They walk through a redesigned tag management system for Android and iOS that makes it easier to see, use, and organize tags, and better matches the experience of the desktop app. Subscribe to our channel to follow the journey, and feel free to leave your feedback here!

    I have a lot of notes in my Evernote folders and sometimes I need to have a sort of overview that shows me what they're all about and how they connect. To address this problem I created an open source tool that can visualize the text contained inside the notes as a graph network, so you can see the main terms, how they connect, and the main topics inside. A bit like a tag cloud but with the added context. I thought I'd post it here in case you're interested as over the last years it has been updated quite a lot and has a lot of features like sharing, comparing the different folders, identifying the narrative shifts, etc. Here it is: www.infranodus.com Let me know if you're looking for some specific features as I would be happy to add them to this tool...

    I agree to what CalS says. Plus reserve some time every month or so just to clean up the tagging landscape. Get rid of rarely used tags, merge synonyms into one tag, watch out for blank spots in your tagging logic etc. It is better to do this on a desktop, because it offers other tools to do so, especially for changing a bunch of notes in one go. Just make sure you always assign the new / replacement tag before you delete the old / replaced one.

    No issue, and I am using less advanced I-devices. The only issue is that it may take some time until everything is safely uploaded and stored on the server. But I do rarely put large (what is large ? 10MB ? 25 MB ? 50 MB ? ) pictures into notes, so maybe I miss a part of what is needed to jump off the syncing cliff. In the few occasions I did, it worked out fine, after allowing time for the sync. How long depends on the internet connection.

    Tags 101 for me. Use tags to winnow search results to where text search can be used if need be Keep tag names as short as possible Let tag names be what they mean Statement for statements Companyname for company name, Amex for American Express PC.Stuff for PC stuff Model name for car, GX460 for Lexus GX460 Use a few prefixes to help with tag drop downs, = for people =Smith =Jones, ! for GTD/TSW task stuff, !1-Now !2-Next. _ for years _2019 _2018 . for projects, .Kitchen .New.UI Avoid compound or multi word tags unless you are a hierarchical thinker. They just get in my way. Exceptions can be tings like 1040.Sched.A 1040,W2. In this case a tag:1040* tag:_2018 search yields a search set for all tax documents for 2018, US anyway. Have the fewest tags possible If a tag is used by fewer than 5 or 10 notes check to see if it can be consolidated. Net of it all you need to do what feels right to you. Good thing about EN, most of the time you can make adjustments fairly quickly and easily. I don''t add many tags each year now. Just trips and projects. Use case can make a difference, mine is paperless, tasks, reference, and thought pieces which may be why I haven't added a bunch of tags after the first couple of years.

    Although Ian Small is much more open to customers that I remember from his predecessors, there's a difference between sharing what Evernote is actively working on now, and explaining which features they will or will not be introducing over the next several years. Few CEOs would say 'never' to anything, but no-one is going to say "we'll have that next year" because you also never know what little challenges will get thrown in your way between now and then. Even fewer will want to open a dialogue where they say "that's not a priority", and users say "why not?" and start demanding justification for the decision. What features you see are what you have to work with. As to offering a tutorial - that in itself is a sizeable commitment of time and effort, needs constant maintenance and invites lots of "why didn't you mention..." comments for other new apps - and what about those folks who want different features for photo storage, genealogy and coding? Are more tutorials going to be created? IS might decide to comment here if and when he sees the thread, but I'd rather he and the team concentrate on his avowed priority of "getting Evernote back on the path of developing and shipping quality software" (which might include encryption, but I'd guess you might have to wait for the video to learn more...)

    Thanks....I actually lucked out and found the original setup file. When I run the file, it downloads the latest version from somewhere....Fujitsu maybe? It's working as it should be so that's all I care about. Thanks again.

    There's no indication that Evernote is interested in encrypted notes and notebooks In fact, we know Evernote's service is built on having access to notes for processing; OCR, search indexing, ... We do have the freedom to encrypt our data Evernote has a text encryption feature I make use of the native encyption in attachments; pdfs, office/iWork documents, ....

    There seems to be no actual software any more. If you search the forum, you will find posts way back complaining about problems with the firmware, and no solution. Fujitsu has discontinued development. - If your scanner is still working, continue as it is. - If you have problems, then the only solutions seems to be to convert it into a standard ix500. To do this, get the most recent firmware from Fujitsu, and download it to the ix500/EN-edition. Somewhere in the forum was a good description step-by-step. It will stop to behave like an edition scanner, but it will work again. There is no way back, so after the new firmware got deployed, this is it. I have a standard ix500, working fine ... So before doing so, maybe invest some time into a more profound research, here in the forum and elsewhere.

    I heard back from support - they basically gave me detailed instructions to uninstall/reinstall Evernote to fix this problem! I was very skeptical at first and said so, they insisted to do this exactly as they instruct below. So I followed their steps EXACTLY, and guess what - I have been a full 24 hours with no crashes! I was getting 6 a day so this is very encouraging. I thought I would pass on the steps if you want to try too. I didn't want to believe it but I am very hopeful this bug is gone! From Support: I recommend you export any local notebooks and unsynced notes as a backup because they have not been synced to our server and will be unrecoverable after this procedure. For detailed instructions on exporting your notes, click here. Then follow these steps: If Evernote is running, press Command + Q to quit the Evernote application Download App Cleaner from the App Cleaner website When the download is complete: open the zip file, then open the App Cleaner app (Note - I saw no zip file, the web site lets you just download the latest .dmg file, which I did). Open the ‘Applications’ folder in your Finder and drag Evernote to the App Cleaner window. After App Cleaner searches for and lists all related files, click Remove (Note: Please scroll down the list that app cleaner finds and check every box so everything is removed.) Right-click (or Ctrl + Click) on your Mac’s Trash and select Empty Trash Reboot your computer Download and install Evernote for Mac from the Evernote website Drag the Evernote icon into your ‘Applications’ folder Open Evernote and log in to your Evernote account

    To uninstall, you need to remove all files - app, database, .... The app AppCleaner is recommended for this To force a resync of all notes: Hold the Shift andOption keys on your keyboard and click the sync wheel

    Sync everything from the old Mac. Go into the web client. Check whether everything is there. In the web client, take the old Mac out as device. Install EN on the new Mac, enter your account data, sync everything from the server. Because of the 2-device-limit, you have to take the old Mac out before EN will sync to the new one. The web client never counts as a "device".

    There really is no Tags 101, i.e., there's no One True Way to Tag. There are many ways to tag, and different methodologies. You should be more specific about what you're trying to do. I could tell you what I do, and how it works for me, but that's surely different than other folks' approaches. Well, OK, there is some 101 stuff (more like rules of the road): Tags have no intrinsic meaning, except what you give them. Tags can be formed into trees (hierarchies), similar to file folders, but one restriction to this is that tag names are unique, meaning that a tag name can exist in only one location in your tag hierarchy scheme. The formal Evernote search language can find notes with specific tags, for example, a search for "tag:abc" will match the "abc" tag, but not tags "abce" or "xyzabc". You can use a wildcard at the end of a tag term to match the start of a tag name; for example, , a search for "tag:abc*" will match the "abc" tag, and the tag "abce" (but not "xyzabc"). Note that some tools (e.g. the tag filter tool in the Windows search panel) do filter on infix matches, as in you type "abc" and it matches "abcxyz", "zabcz","xyzabc" etc. That's really handy. You can apply multiple tags to a note, much like in many languages (e.g. English), a noun may have several adjectives that describe it (e.g., "my big red dilapidated house").

    Last I knew, the fonts are hardcoded into the application. Well, it gets the system font for the status bar and uses that. (I think it's the status bar font...)

    The store app actually cleans up after itself pretty well. Revo shouldn't be necessary for that. (Store apps use their own copy of the registry, so the global one isn't "contaminated".) The only thing that won't be cleaned up is the database directory (on purpose - that's why it was moved out of localapps a few years ago). Personally, I use the direct download version too.

    Actually, they're not stored there. They're stored in the database (the `.exb` file) In order to run/edit/etc an attachment, it must first be stored in a location where it can be accessed. That's what the Attachments are. Anything in there can be safely deleted when EN is not running.

    Everybody who would like Evernote to make this feature (that overrides my phone's settings!?!) to be optional, or removed, please visit the link and vote the request up (up arrow, left side, next to title of post) https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/100180-request-screen-timeout-options/

    The spreadsheet file is stored in the Evernote database and is not available to Excel. When you open the attachment file in Evernote for editing Evernote exports the spreadsheet file to a temporary folder launches Excel, and waits until your editing is finished imports the spreadsheet file and replaces the attachment file deletes the file from the temporary folder

    That's purely the displayed size. The original image file is unchanged. The only way to amend that is to open the image in another app, resize it, and resave. On a mobile it's also possible to preselect the size of images taken by the device camera, and share/ attach those to Evernote notes from the Gallery. If using the Evernote camera I believe the app chooses an 'appropriate' file size depending on whether this is a document, a business card or a picture. You'd have to take the same picture and save as three different documents to confirm the file sizes involved (or look at the note sizes to check for differences).

    Thanks for the info -- Yeah, like I asked in the original post: "If this is a feature, where do I switch it on and off?" I don't have a problem with it being a feature, but if it's a feature that overrides your phone's normal functions, then it should have an on-off switch, absolutely. Especially if it has the potential to be an accidental huge battery-drainer.

    A long-standing feature, not a bug. For further reading, see the also long-standing request that it be removed or made optional: In particular, this explanation from Evernote staff:

    Glad to hear it!! Sorry - that comment reads like I expected you to be gone for daring to speak out. It was meant to be a wry and vaguely complimentary comment on the fact that Evernote staff don't usually talk about future projects and I was pleased that you had. Even if it was only a few carefully chosen words...

    There's no automatic trash deletion Also, this would be a server function, not device (Android) specific https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313478-How-to-delete-notes-and-manage-your-Trash

    I totally agree, please add an option to turn this behaviour off if I want to. I use it on my tablet lying on a table, sometime I get up and get distracted, come back 2 hours later with an almost empty battery. (Android) This is a major annoyance to me, and I am kind of sad this hasnt been adressed yet...
