  1. Thanks gazumped. I am running Evernote 6.0.5 on OS 10.10.1. The problem is not an over-effective auto-correct, but an over-effective UNDO command in Evernote. I did try what you suggest - of course turning off text correction obviates the need for me to hit CMD-Z so often but that is not a functional solution for me as I rely on auto-correct very heavily in other applications. Unchecking smart quotes and dashes had no effect as well (although, I do thank you for pointing me to that as it solves another nagging problem I've been having over the years). So, in short, I'm still at a loss as to why CMD-Z does more in Evernote than in other applications... and whether this is something specific to my setup.
  2. I am having an annoying 'problem' with Evernote on both my home and work Mac's, and wanted to know if this was something there was a fix for. It happens frequently enough that I thought of asking for help here. When Evernote autocorrects something I've typed, the keystroke CMD-Z will not only undo the autocorrection, but will instead undo the last sentence or two of typing. This behaviour is not consistent with other Mac programs I used, including Textedit, Safari, or MS Word, where CMD-Z undoes the autocorrection only. It is annoying because when it tries to auto-'correct' some technical terms that I do not want fixed, I instinctively hit CMD-Z and Evernote deletes a sentence or so of text. To give a specific example, assume I want to type "I updated the mount points in fstab.", where autocorrect will 'correct' fstab to 'stab'. At this point, I hit CMD-Z. In Textedit/MS Word, it undoes the autocorrect, replacing stab with fstab and I move on. In Evernote, it deletes the entire sentence, and I have to type it all over again. Any help would be appreciated! Sam
  3. Agreed, thanks for the quick turnaround on bringing back the horizontal view. Back to work for me!
  4. To any Evernote employees: will you be re-introducing Horizontal list view in future updates?
  5. ⌘-⌥-S - That is the fastest way Thanks Palladion - I found that hides the Sidebar but not the Vertical List view - would love to find a shortcut/option for that! Also - does someone know how I can reinstall the previous, good, version of Evernote? EDIT - I was able to grab an older version from the /Applications folder inside my Time Machine and it seems to work OK.
  6. I have (and use) the sidebar open all the time. With the addition of the list view, I now need to make the Evernote window much wider to display a page-width of note text. Also, I usually don't have that many notes in each notebook, so now I have all this wasted space in the List view. Now if the Evernote team has their heart set on using only a Vertical List view, how about giving us an option to 'auto-hide' it, or to have some sort of 'drawer' option, so that we can at least get rid of it when we don't need it? (Or, does some option already exist)?
  7. Been a premium member for a couple of years now. I don't use the forums unless I'm having a problem with Evernote, so I didn't see any post about removing horizontal list view. Please consider this backlash. The new vertical view is a terrible waste of space for me. I use (and pay) for Evernote because it's a great program for writing, reading, and searching notes, not because of reminders or other frills. I'm all for adding new functionality but not that affects the core purpose of Evernote! Could someone please explain how I might go about downgrading from 5.1.0?
  8. I just upgraded to Evernote 5.1.0 via the Mac App Store, and I can't seem to get my horizontal list view back. Am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated! Sam
  9. Do you know if the two separate version of Evernote (i.e. App Store and direct download) will both be maintained in the foreseeable future?
  10. Okay, so I found a workaround that DOES encrypt the Evernote data under 10.7.4. Assuming you had previously encrypted your Evernote data in a mounted, encrypted sparsebundle called ENCRYPTED: 1. Go to ~/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/Data/Library/Application Support/ and delete the symbolic link to ENCRYPTED/Evernote. 2. Copy the ~/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote folder into /Volumes/ENCRYPTED/ 3. Move the ENCRYPTED/Evernote into ENCRYPTED/com.evernote.Evernote/Data/Library/Application Support/ 4. In the terminal, create a new symbolic link: ln -s /Volumes/ENCRYPTED/com.evernote.Evernote/ /Users/xxxxx/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote where xxxxx is of course your short user name. For those who did NOT previously want to encrypt their Evernote data but wish to do so now, just create and mount a new sparsebundle, and skip steps 1 and 3 above. You'll need to open the sparsebundle before running Evernote, of course. Needless to say I don't work for Evernote and I'm sure the above method is not recommended and at your own risk. It's worked for me so far, but it's only been an hour so who knows what might happen!
  11. On 10.7.4 it's in ~/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/Data/Library/Application Support/Evernote/ Not sure if it's the same in 10.8.
  12. I have the same problem. I had moved my Evernote folder to an encrypted sparsebundle a year ago. In doing so, I created a symbolic link to the new location (on the encrypted drive) as per the suggestions here: http://www.documentsnap.com/how-to-encrypt-evernote-on-mac-osx/ With 3.3.0, I can't seem to open evernote at all. I get the same sandboxd errors as J2AN and the program doesn't open. I'm running 10.7.4 The problem is the main Evernote data folders have moved from ~/Library/Application Support/ into a 'Container'. In doing so, Evernote migrated the symbolic link I previosuly made into the Container. However, sandboxd doesn't allow Evernote to leave the container. I believe the 'fix' is as follows: Go to ~/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/Data/Library/Application Support/ and delete the Evernote link there. Evernote then prompts you to do a fresh resync of data. The drawback is, however, that the data is no longer encrypted on my Mac. I hope Evernote can find a way to encrypt the entire folder on the Mac. I don't want to use Filevault but I do want that information kept safe in case my computer is stolen.
