  1. Thanks guys.  Yes, I had to be in Notebook view to perform the drag-n-drop.  If memory serves me, the process of moving a notebook from one stack to another stack, was much easier and more intuitive, in Windows.   I can't help but wonder why this less intuitive method was necessary/selected for the Mac.


  2. Thanks for the feedback PinkElephant and DTLow.  I mis-typed...  I meant to type that I was unable to drag-n-drop a Notebook on a Stack.  I have a notebook Mac Stuff and would like to place that notebook under the stack Computer Technology.   With EN on the Mac, I don't seem to be able to create (or drag-n-drop) a Notebook under a Stack.


  3. Hi.  Sometimes, I have great difficulty scrolling to the top of a list.  For instance, when I search all notes for a certain string, scan the long list of search returns by scrolling down the list, find the desired note, then cancel my search, by pressing the X on the search bar, EN will understandably leave me on the last note i was viewing.   The problem starts when I drag the vertical scroll control to the top of the list.  When I drag the v-scroll control to the top of the list, and release the right mouse button, EN will bounce the vertical scroll control back down the list.  If I drag the v-control back up to the top again, EN will bounce it back down again... and again... and again.  Have others noticed this issue?  Workarounds?  Has EN identified this issue as a problem?  Thanks.  


  4. I, too, am seeing high cpu usage by en with version 6.15.4.7934. 

    Be nice if windows incorporated enhancements which...
    - allow users to set, right in task mgr, max cpu possible for an app
    - forced an app to report the reason for cpu usage above a certain level...  so we would know, for instance, that en is indexing the db, etc.

    Be nice if en would throttle-back non-critical, long running, high cpu operations, when sensing keyboard and mouse activity.

    Your are welcome.  

    Yes, you can have multiple accounts stored on the same computer.  Just go to File - Add another user to sign in to additional accounts.  A data base, a .EXB file, will be created for each account.  You should get an icon in your task bar for each account open to facilitate switching between them.

    Cal, suppose I add, as you described, my work en user to my personal account, and can then access both my personal en, and my work en, from same en instance...  

    If everyone that accesses my work en uses the same login that i use, will they have access to my personal en info?

    Hi.  Evernote is not a word-processor and does not support line spacing as such.  Pasting from another app will often bring hidden style codes that display a particular spacing,  but if you remove the formatting from the note it will often revert back to standard single spacing.  The only way to preserve layout would be to attach the original app output file - a DOCX or PDF file - so you can edit as necessary.  If you don't see the content of the document as part of your note,  you could copy and paste the 'de-styled' text into the note purely for reference and (maybe) search index purposes...

    Thanks Gazumped.  EN could do a better job of preserving original line-spacing/formatting.  They might start with a new, very targeted, format-preserving preference enhancement:  Preserve Original Line Spacing. 


  7. Hi.  I access (mostly from my personal computer) a premium personal Evernote account and I access (from the web) a shared work Evernote account.
    Is there a way for me to setup my personal Evernote, so that my work Evernote is accessible from my personal Evernote?

    I want to add that everyone at work logs into the work Evernote with the same credentials.  So, I don't think the situation, which someone mentioned, where they access work EN from personal EN and vise-versa, would work for me.


  8. It seems that every month, one or more very well-financed company will report that their customers' data was hacked.  Some in the security business say that if a company is a sufficiently attractive target, it's not a question of "will you be hacked?" but "when will you be successfully hacked?"  

     

    EN is certainly a very attractive hacking target.  

     

    I am feeling less and less comfortable with my personal documents being stored on en.  

     

    At one point, I was encrypting all sensitive documents.

    However, that process is time-consuming and eliminates one of the major en benefits: quick, comprehensive searches.

     

    It seems that en needs to offer another level of protection--a level of protection which would require customers to optionally supply a encryption key to un-encrypt their data; a level of protection such that a hacker would need to un-encrypt each customer's account individually.

     

    What do others think on this topic?

     

     

     


  9. Here's a quote from a OneNote review: "OneNote takes this further, and instantly OCRs any text in images you add." Does Evernote OCR all images? When I scan a document, my scanning software seems to create an unsearchable image of the document, in a pdf file. When that document is stored in Evernote I still cannot search and find words in the document from Evernote. Any suggestions/thoughts/ideas appreciated. Thanks.


  10. What about en providing an account option which allows encryption at the expense of indexing? I guess searching would be on titles and tags?

    Already done!

    1.) Individual text information can already be encrypted.

    or

    2.) For more security, put your notes into a non-synchronized local Evernote notebook. Never hits the cloud.

    or

    3.) For higher security, use TrueCrypt to protect your Evernote notes.

    The speed and ease of one-button, one-step sending to en is important to me. Most of my sensitive documents arrive in pdf format. Besides, a key en feature is its ubiquity across platforms--I don't want to have documents stored on my pc when they are needed on my android phone. As another poster suggested, I think that en should provide an encrypt configuration switch so that all data is encrypted--metadata (tags, titles, etc.) is left unencrypted and searchable.


  11. You should be aware that Evernote does NOT encrypt either the Note or its attachments. Evernote's current policy is one of "buyer beware" and they push the security onto the user. If your documents contain sensitive info you may want to encrypt prior to upload to Evernote.

    Seems like a huge omission. After all, for many, the main attraction of en would be a central/cloud location to store all personal documents. Some of the documents stored with en are going to be very personal. If someone hacks into en servers--some would say it's not if, but when somebody hacks into en servers--all those personal documents will be available to the hacker... Without the added effort of having to unencrypt each customer's en account? Am I missing something?

    Since this has already been discussed *at great length* on the board, already, please search the board on security and/or encryption. In a nutshell, EN cannot index encrypted notes.
