  1. I get the functionality I think you want via a third party app called Everclip which allows you to cut and past whole pages or portions of pages from anywhere on your device (web browser, RSS Reader etc) into your EN account almost directly - basically you have everclip running in background, when you copy it goes to everclip then you go to everclip and send to your EN account which you will have synchronised with. I actually find this more useful than Instapaper's way of doing things because it works beyond web pages (e.g. from books or cooking apps) and it avoids the issues I sometimes have with instapaper and non-standard web addresses (e.g. shortened links, strange referral links that some RSS readers have etc). Everclip is not free though (from memory it was $4.99 in Australian app store but I use it a lot so well worth it for me.
  2. Let me know how you make out. I ended up turning off both indexing and search, although I think the latter was unnecessary. My desktop client is mostly freeze free, although it does have occasional hiccups. I thing those are ordinary, though, not the repeated snags I used to see. I'm interested to hear if the indexing fix works for you. It's been a very long and baffling troubleshoot. I don't know if I've got the energy to put in a support ticket for such a vague problem (nothing against the EN people but I imagine working through it all will take lots of time and I'm in a different time zone which just drags things out further) - I think I'll probably just use my workaround which is to close EN after each use. This is not ideal - and actually doesn't work indefinitely as I usually end up having to manually end the task process after a couple of dozen open/close sessions - but it's about the best I can think of. Sounds like the problem I had all the way through. You have my sympathy. It's as aggravating as you get. Tech support was fantastic in trying to help me with the problem. Days did pass in between responses sometimes, but I appreciated the effort. Ultimately, they agreed that indexing was probably my problem when I reported that it solved the trouble. An earlier suspicion was that keeping evernote open on other machines – my laptop, work computer, smart phone – may be the source of the problem. I tried shutting all those other versions of EN and for a day or two, it seemed to help. Then it just reemerged like some horror movie monster that just won't die. It's crazy because you'd think there are all sorts of people experiencing this problem, but it seems limited to a handful. Windows 7 seems to be a common theme. If I remember right, that's what OS you're on too, right? Yes, Windows 7...and the PC is nearly 3 years old with all the usual issues of having been used by several people over that time - one of them a teenager - all sorts of odd little things having been downloaded and removed and turned on/off. That's why I'm not sure I can be bothered with the support process - there'll be so many different things to check - it's probably less time consuming for me to continue with my current awkward workaround. But I'll consider it. There might be more people experiencing this and not worrying about it...As I was for a couple of months. Perhaps they haven't reached their tipping point yet
  3. Let me know how you make out. I ended up turning off both indexing and search, although I think the latter was unnecessary. My desktop client is mostly freeze free, although it does have occasional hiccups. I thing those are ordinary, though, not the repeated snags I used to see. I'm interested to hear if the indexing fix works for you. It's been a very long and baffling troubleshoot. Well my good news is that I have a result quickly...the bad news is it hasn't worked (though I've only got indexing turned off, not searching). My situation is - I generally open EN first thing when I turn on the computer - then I go to it as needed - what's been happening for the past couple of months is that if I leave it for say 30 minutes or more without going to it, the next time I do try to go to it I get the "not responding" message and I have to close, then also end the process via the task manager otherwise I can't re-open it at all. Lately (last week or so) this not responding thing has started to happen while I am using EN (i.e. I am actually in the application doing things) though only occasionally. This is what prompted me to see if there was a solution though. I did think it might be to do with the synchronising so after I did the re-install today I opened EN on my PC then deliberately left it for 45 minutes - I didn't open EN on my iPad or iPhone during that time - when I cam back to EN I got the old familiar "not responding" thing. I don't know if I've got the energy to put in a support ticket for such a vague problem (nothing against the EN people but I imagine working through it all will take lots of time and I'm in a different time zone which just drags things out further) - I think I'll probably just use my workaround which is to close EN after each use.

  4. Indeed - i thought the same thing about 3 minutes after asking, but thanks anyway Turns out indexing was already turned off so I have opted for the uninstall route and will see how it goes.
  5. I have been experiencing the Evernote freezing problem on my Windows 7 machine for a couple of months now and have finally found the time to do a bit of research. This topic is as far as I've gotten. I will try the complete uninstall if I have to but before I do can you tell me how to disable the indexing on Windows? That sounds like an easier fix to start with. Or perhaps I have to do both?
  6. It's a bit annoying to have to be patient about something so blatantly awful - not only does the market section take up a whole load of space and look remarkably like an advertisement that I'm paying not to see but it's advertising things not even available to those of us outside the US Still - I do realise this is a real case of #firstworldproblems - however I am no longer the EN evangelist I once was - the appaling management of the upgrade inline with iOS7 and this increasing push towards selling me ***** I don't want make me sad. So sad I even looked at OneNote as a serious alternative (it doesn't really do all I want but it's the first time I've ever thought about using something other than EN)
