  1. Just logged in at my computer... and before I'd opened any other apps, I launched Activity Monitor... and there was the Evernote Helper app, running for no apparent reason. I'm trying to stop this from happening so that my iMac won't take so long from when I log in to when I can actually start using it. So I'm clearing out just about everything that starts up automatically. And I can't seem to prevent Evernote Helper from loading...
  2. Additional info: If I open the Evernote app and then Quit it, both Evernote and the Evernote Helper quit. Their processes disappear from Activity Monitor. But the next time I log in, Evernote Helper will be there again.
  3. Context: I'm using Evernote Version 5.5.1 (402628 App Store) on Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9.5). According to the App Store, Evernote is up to date. I can't update to Yosemite yet, so if there's a newer version that requires Yosemite, that's not an option for me. Problem: Evernote Helper starts up every time I log in. And I can't make it stop. - I've already checked System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items. Evernote Helper isn't there. - I've gone into the Evernote app's preferences and unchecked "Keep Evernote Helper running in the background" and both boxes underneath (Show Elephant and Start the Evernote Helper when I log in). Still, every time I log in, Evernote Helper starts. The Elephant icon doesn't appear in the menubar, but I checked Activity Monitor, and Evernote Helper is running. Solution? Does anyone have one?
  4. I'm adding my two cents to this one, too. I would LOVE to be able to choose the thumbnail. As it stands, Evernote almost never chooses the thumbnail I would choose. Which means the thumbnails are a DISTRACTION to finding the note I want, not a HELP. If I could choose the thumbnail, when needed, it would be a HUGE HELP. (I'm also a Premium subscriber, if that matters.)
  5. +1 or ditto or "Me, too!" or whatever I need to say... I'd love to be able to choose the thumbnail image for a note. Whether the note has multiple images taken with my phone, or multiple random images because I clipped a whole webpage, the thumbnail chosen is almost never the one I want. Which means the thumbnails are usually a distraction, not a help. If I could choose them, they would be an enormous help. Are any developers still reading this? Or is there another avenue for making feature requests? Google found me this thread.
  6. I would imagine the direct download is the same. Ok. So that's for the current version. Thanks. What about older versions? I know there are versions available that work on OS X 10.5, for example, because when I download it on my older MacBook Pro, that's what the download link gives me. I've seen direct links to older versions on the forums. It'd be helpful to have a list, along with the system requirements. And, of course, it'd be nice to have system requirements actually listed on the Evernote website so users don't have to guess.
  7. Yep, I can confirm this undesirable feature. This is one of the many reasons that I almost never use the Evernote Snapshot feature directly. The biggest issue I have is that EN does NOT provide an option for reducing image resolution, and therefore file size, before storing the image in EN. As a result you get images that require many MB of storage that need only take a few KB. Rather, I use a 3rd party EN Trunk app to take the snapshot and send to Evernote. What app? I need to find something, since their built-in camera is so screwed up, and they still start with the oldest photos when importing from Camera Roll.
  8. I have a bit of a frustration. I can't seem to find system requirements listed anywhere for Evernote. It's nowhere on the main site, that I can see. (Searching the Knowledge Base brings up two old and conflicting articles.) Plus, I know there are old versions available for download for those with older versions of OS X, but they're extremely difficult to find. (The search feature on these forums isn't much help.) Could someone post a list of the various versions available for download, as well as their system requirements? And then, at some point, could someone who works for Evernote make that list available outside these forums?
