About Tone Engel

  1. Thanks for responding so quickly that other's were not seeing this problem. Problem disappeared after a reboot. Possibly originally caused by rebooting a router between Comcast and the computer without rebooting the computer. Only a guess though. Haven't seen this kind of a problem before and it was oddly specific - Only triggered by Evernote Sync function (not Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, etc...)
  2. Yesterday (2017-04-25), my Evernote client (Windows 10, 6.5.4.4720) began popping up Security Alert windows about an expired www.comcast.net certificate. This happens every time it tries to sync. It appears that the only way I'll be able to sync now is if I start trusting this self-signed certificate which describes itself as valid from 2014-09-17 to 2015-09-07. Why should I? So Sync is now broken on Windows 10. This is a critical bug.
  3. Severe bug in synchronization. Notes edited on iOS client. Windows client is idle, not being used to modify the note in any way. The original notes contain a number of ink/handwriting images, no text other than some white space to separate the ink. The synchronization code is making the following errors: Duplicating ink images. Often the duplicate is an earlier version of the ink image. Re-inserting ink images that were deleted from the note. Losing ink image edits. This is the most severe issue as it is non-recoverable. The edits are just gone. In additition, duplicating the note makes the following error: Incorrectly converting the ink images to ordinary images (after which it become impossible to continue editing them on the iOS client).
  4. It is actually a severe bug. The Windows client isn't being used to modify the note in any way. The original notes contain a number of ink/handwriting images, no text other than some white space to separate the ink. The synchronization code is making the following errors: incorrectly converting the ink images to ordinary images (after which it become impossible to continue editing them on the iOS client). [Edit: This actually only happens if the note is duplicated.] Duplicating ink images. Often the duplicate is an earlier version of the ink image. Re-inserting ink images that were deleted from the note. Losing ink image edits. This is the most severe issue as it is non-recoverable. The edits are just gone. EDIT: Given #4 above, I'm now using a competing note taking app as it is impossible to use Evernote if it doesn't preserve my changes. My earliest Evernote notes date from 2007-12-29. Can we count on you to protect and secure our content or not?
  5. "Conflicting modifications" These are synchronization failures. I typically have Windows 10 and iOS clients open. My daily work notes are made to a single note on the iOS client. Two days running now, by the end of the day the note has lost edits and displays "Conflicting modifications" on both clients. There doesn't seem to be a damn thing you can do about it! There used to be a folder where you could find the conflicting versions of the note to manually recover the situation. Can't find anything on either client relevant to fixing conflicts. General feedback: As a long time user (since the beginning), I'm really frustrated by your apparent lack of care to preserve functionality and protect data integrity. Loyalty only lasts so long...
  6. The update does NOT preserve existing functionality. I use the Apple pencil on an iPad with Evernote to maintain my daily working notes. Every day starts by duplicating yesterday's note, erasing things I completed, and I was good to go. Each note contained a number of full screen handwriting "images" that I could tap to resume editing. Now, after a duplicate, all of the "images" lose the ability for further editing. Please restore the ability to always continue editing handwriting notes.
  7. I'm perpetually frustrated by the text editor in the Windows client. Too often an inadvertent change can't be undone. Typically its as simple as pasting something into a note and then realizing that I didn't want the formatting. It invariably proves to be impossible to undo the paste action which leaves me with a hunk of formatted text that bleeds undesired and invisible format changes into the note even after the visible content of the paste operation is deleted. Working with multi-level numerical outlines is also broken. When things get a bit complicated weird things start happening that are frustrating to work around. In a list I just created in a note, changing the indent level of a numbered line left spurious numbered blank line behind. The line can't be deleted. Only by merging and re-separating adjacent numbered lines can I cause the odd line to bubble down to an area of matching indent level whereupon I can finally get rid of it. These are just two examples. Just about every time I create a note with any kind of non-trivial formatting - something breaks and I spend a frustrating amount of time just trying to maintain my formatting. This is NOT conducive to staying focused on note taking. This is a long running issue with the Evernote client that I keep hoping will improve with each new revision. To date I don't have the feeling that any significant progress is being made in this direction. PLEASE put more time into testing the text editor. It feels very much like there's an underlying markup document schema that isn't being consistency checked across client induced operations. -Tone Engel
