    Are you using the direct download version? Or the Windows Store version? Launch at start up is not in the Store version (at least not as of June - we hadn't figured out how to launch a store app at startup when I left)

    Search on OCRed content can never be absolutely precise. OCR is not done by „reading“ character by character, and putting it together. It will read the dots, build a table of dots => characters and then based on the selected language(s) make a guess on the word itself. If not sure, it will put alternatives into the metadata containing the OCR results. When searching, EN will find these, which may result in false-positives (notes found that do not contain the word) as well as in false-negatives (notes containing the word, but not found). This is independent from whether the OCR was done before importing into EN, or on the EN servers themselves. The more languages you choose, the wilder will be the guessed OCR-results, and the further off can be results. On the other side, if a word is not contained in a dictionary (like names, words from a foreign language etc.), OCR guesses will likely be off, finding words by trying a best match to the selected language.

    Dunno, gaz, but hey, Evernote has 200 million accounts and all of a sudden they're ready to R.I.P.? I think if bloggers can help to explain how to use Evernote or whatever better, and how they may differ from other applications, then that's all great. But as prognosticators of tech trends? That's an entirely different skill set. Help me get a toehold on Notion, and that's probably worth my time & attention. Try to predict whether Notion or Evernote will dominate over time? My guess is probably as good as anyone else's, and when people make predictions, that's when I reach for my jar of sea salt and start hunting for the largest grains.The problem with making your living bloggering is that you need to generate constant content, even when there's not much there there...

    Hi Folks - We’re making our new Evernote Web experience available for users to try today. What makes it so shiny and new you ask? We’ve spiffed things up to create more consistent design and interactions across web and other platforms. With the ‘Shared with me’ view, you can now easily see all of the notes and notebooks that have, well, been shared with you. We’ve done some work under the hood to improve search results, so things will now be ordered by relevance instead of date updated. Coming soon to a web experience near you: You may be missing reminders and a tags view, but don’t worry; we’re adding functionality to this new world as we go, so some of your favorite features are still to come. Want in? All you have to do is go to ‘Settings’ and click the ‘Use the new web beta’ link. Give it a spin and then send us any feedback you have by using with ‘Feedback’ button. If the changes aren’t your cup of tea, no worries. You can turn back the clock by navigating to ‘Account’ and clicking on ‘Switch to previous version of Evernote’. New Web Experience

    Hi all, TL;DR - I'm new to the forum, an Enterprise technical support engineer (this means I'm not a noob noob) using Evernote Premium daily for work without issue. That is until I updated yesterday to v7.12 for macOS. Now scrolling through a note fullscreen or windowed mode causes Evernote to spike it's CPU usage to 90-100%. This is making Evernote unusable and I'm trying to study for an AWS certification exam...please help! I'm new to the forum as I've never had a need to post here. However, I'm having an issue today that I didn't have yesterday and the only difference is the Evernote update 7.12. Before I go into the issue further, I'd like to mention a couple things in the hopes I won't get replies with comments like "have you tried rebooting?" or some variation of that. So.. I am an IT professional working for an Enterprise storage company as a technical support engineer. Essentially, I'm not a noob noob and before ever posting to a forum or calling a support line I troubleshoot the issue as far as I can, then I google every possible work combination to find someone with similar issues. However, I've not found one post about v7.12 for macOS with similar behaviour. A few things noteworthy... 1. The particular note I'm using was being used yesterday without issue, only now after the update is it showing this faulty behaviour. (Yes I've rebooted, at which point OSX installed is own update but this didn't fix anything nor did I expect it to). 2. Yes I've tried both full screen and windowed mode, behaviour is the same. 3. No I have not tried to roll back to the previous version yet. Before doing this, I wanted to confirm if others have experienced this issue or not. 4. The particular note I am scrolling through does have screenshots but they are not even close to being large enough to require 98% CPU. I don't think for a second the screenshots are to blame, but admit it's definitely a possibility. In fact after writing the above paragraph I've tested it with a large text only note and I managed to hit 100.7% CPU usage by scrolling up and down quickly. I've never had issues like this with Evernote. 5. Lastly, I use Evernote premium everyday of my life at work to document my investigations. With 4 screens (1x 4k, 2x 1080p, and laptop display) plus 5-6 or more applications open at all times, I've never seen my laptop lagging the way Evernote is when trying to scroll right now. Image 1 - MBP specs and macOS version confirmation (Just to clarify I have enough computing power to scroll through a single note with a few screenshots embedded in it) Image 2 - Screenshot of Activity Monitor and realtime matching CPU usage per core (in a simplified view - gee thanks Apple) Ok so after all that, my simple questions are... 1. Is this a known issue? (can't find any reference to this type of issue for v7.12) 2. Have others experienced or are others experiencing this? 3. If so, have you tried to fix it and if you have, did you have to roll back version? 4. Has anyone tried using 'nice/renice' to lower the priority of Evernote? If so, does it work or just make Evernote less usable? I'm currently trying to study for an AWS certification and this issue is making my core note taking app unusable. I've just wasted an hour or more trying to troubleshoot this issue and I could really use some help please. If rolling back is the answer, I'll do that but don't want to unless it's necessary.

    The only way to stop this that I know of is to add some spaces to the URL field, so it won't be empty. Or a script could be created to paste the note, then remove the URL info.

    Sometimes this kind of thing can be fixed with paste-and-match-style (Ctrl+Shift+V), or simplify formatting (Ctrl+Space), or remove formatting (Ctrl+Shift+Space). But some of these will remove desired formatting, such as italics or URL links. But sometimes there is HTML formatting that just won't leave. I don't necessarily see this happening myself. Is it possible that something in the formatting of the Word document(s) may be causing it? You say "or elsewhere": can you be more specific? Websites for instance? There's always going to be underlying HTML formatting there, which can be very hard to remove, except by going through Notepad or another plain-text editor (using the browser search bar is admirably clever).

    Also found no results for aslia after clipping that page to Evernote, both article and full page. I have run into a similar issue where web copied data contains hidden html text, sometimes I use an html editor to find the match. In a couple of instances the issue was important enough that I deleted all hidden matches. Now I generally paste as plain text whenever possible, to avoid this issue. I suppose it is better to find hidden content, than failing to find content I know is there, though I learned to get around that issue as well.

    A big problem here is that Evernote's note content (ENML) isn't a full equivalent to HTML (https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/enml.php), and its editing capabilities are tailored towards editing only ENML content, and not full HTML. Moreover, in the web clipping process, HTML must be translated to more-or-less equivalent ENML, so it's not going to be an exact replica of the original web page. Anyways, the ability to remove the tables while retaining the cell content is a fair request, and actually something I'd find useful. Upvoted.

    The video seems to be more about him realising that his rush to judgement is often misjudged than Evernote itself. Rather self indulgent. Also, the backing track made me want to find him and do some damage,

    Exporting data from Evernote is a simple process; I run this weekly as part of my backups I'm curious as to which service/product you'll be using. I'm not aware of any alternatives that deliver the features I value in Evernote why-glass-half-full-people-live-more-fulfilling-lives

    If you are unhappy, you have all the right to move on. Thanks for telling the world why you are unhappy. One great thing with EN is the fact that you are not locked in as with many other programs, so migrating is possible without leaving a good part of your life behind. Good luck !

    No easy way to add the same text to a bunch of notes at the same time as best i know. IAC I would recommend using the underscore as opposed to the hash tag since the underscore is searchable the hashtag is not. Out of interest, why is searching for #receipt better than searching for tag:receipt for you or is it more adding the tags on an IOS device? Just wondering.

    Quoting from "Looking Ahead: Evernote’s Priorities for 2019" by CEO Ian Small The above quote from the CEO Ian Small, about loyalty and the goal of honesty act as a springboard for this feature request. A public roadmap offers a way to build trust with the Evernote user base. It provides users with the ability to see which feature requests are being worked on and it's an asset that can be touched on in the inside Evernote videos. It's part of opening the kimono, to regain lost trust by loyal users. Many companies use Trello, Asana, and other kanban-based planning tools to manage projects among local and remote workers. In other words, I'm confident that Evernote uses Jira or something similar, that has roadmap data that can be added to a publicly viewable asset. Making some part available to the public is low hanging fruit.

    I solved the problem. It's an issue with the retina display. if you go to get info on Evernote and select "Open in low resolution" it gets rid of the lag. It shouldn't have to be this way and I'm really not sure what the point of the retina display is if it can't even handle a notebook app with some pictures in it

    For anyone who is using Evernote on Mac and worried about the storage it takes up (mine used to be 50 gb or more) it looks like the way the hard drives are handled in the upcoming macOS Catalina helps with it. My application data now shows less than 200mb and all my notes are there and I've added quite a few more than I had when the size was bigger.
