  1. I don't think the second part is correct. In addition to metadata, Evernote stores a full copy of every synced notebook on the servers. That is how you are able to access them via the Web client. When you sync a device, it syncs with the servers, not directly with whatever other devices you have.
  2. I assume when you paste the code into a non-Evernote, rich text editor you get colors?
  3. Hi, Evernote reminders should generate notifications of whatever kind the phone OS allows. Have you ruled out that your new phone OS (Android 10, I'm guessing, but you really should have included the version info in your post :-) is handling notifications differently than your old phone? If you've ruled that out, the next step is to open a ticket with Evernote support.
  4. There's more than one way that this URL field can get populated. A more common way for me is: If the URL field is blank in an existing note, and you paste something into that note that came from a Web page (or any software that provides URL metadata to the OS's clip buffer), Evernote will put the URL in this field. I think it was meant to be helpful, but it is annoying that you can't turn it off. For example, if select just my balance from online banking, copy, then paste into Evernote, Evernote puts a URL in the note that contains tokens that are likely related to keeping my bank account secure. I don't want Evernote to retain these tokens!
  5. @Amir Natan When I started using Evernote in 2011, Evenote didn't have a reminder feature at all. They saw themselves as a note-taking / web capture / brainstorming app, not a task manager. They particularly wanted to avoid the trap of trying to be the everything for everybody app. So at first they explained that a reminder feature was not part of their vision for the product. Later they listened to their users an added a basic reminder function, this was mid 2013 IIRC. There hasn't been much movement towards making reminders better since then. I agree it would be nice to have a recurring reminder. I've installed Filterize but don't feel confident enough to program AND TEST repeating reminders to the point that I can trust them. But that (or scripting for Apple stuff) is probably your best workaround.
  6. I don't have any problems pasteing in the app (Android 10, Evernote app 8.9.1) but I can imagine that there are problems like yours that are real, but hard to document. Please share your OS and Android version info. Maybe you can get a friend to shoot video over your shoulder while you reproduce the problem, that way they could see your gestures.
  7. @RavBoy The search syntax for reminders -- e.g. reminderOrder:* -reminderTime:day+1 -reminderDoneTime:* -- is sometimes buggy. My most recent testing, about 1 year ago, produced both false positives (reminders that shouldn't appear in the results, but do) and false negatives (reminders that should appear in the results but don't). Even if you test carefully today and the search string appears to work, it could revert (i.e. the bugs could crop up again) at any time. I have found no 100% accurate method to display reminders (across all notebooks) in the Windows client. The only reliable way I have found to be sure I don't miss any is to use the Android "Evernote list 4x2" widget, in the widget settings aka "Customize Widget", under "List Options" -> "Show" pick "Reminders" from the drop-down, and sort by date. It then displays all reminders in three groups: Overdue, Upcoming, and Unscheduled. The pop-up reminder notifications seem reliable, but if you get a bunch of reminders and have to dismiss them, then later do a search using the above syntax to see what needs attending to, that's a good example of when the bug(s) I'm talking about have burned me in the past.
  8. My guess is, Evernote's latest public release is buggy. Apparently your bug has been fixed in the Beta? If the problem comes back, you could try down-grading to your last known good version of Evernote. You can find them at https://filehippo.com/download_evernote/history/ , with the usual caution that these aren't official Evernote sites so in theory they could have malware. Due to bugs, users have been using these non-official sites to downgrade and no one has reported malware problems so far. Knock wood.
  9. Everybody who would like Evernote to make this feature (that overrides my phone's settings!?!) to be optional, or removed, please visit the link and vote the request up (up arrow, left side, next to title of post) https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/100180-request-screen-timeout-options/
  10. Try contacting support It looks like you installed Evernote via the Windows Store. Might help to uninstall/reinstall Or, uninstall and then install the downloadable directly from Evernote https://evernote.com/download As always, sync before you uninstall. To be extra safe, back up your database. Hope this helps.
  11. Looking forward to a more consistent sync experience. My sync experience has been fine; but I hope these changes will make the sync code more debug-able and easier to maintain. I hope the editor moves in the same direction - strong, functionally isolated modules that, when there's a problem, help isolate the problem, or better still, catch the problem in the development phrase.
  12. @Duhtch thank you for posting the video, it makes it much clearer than trying to describe the problem with words. It sounds like it is once again time to play that old Evernote game, "feature or bug". I think it is a bug, but I suppose this could be a very poorly thought-out feature: When you perform a search, Evernote notices that your search contains a tag, and it selects/highlights that tag in the left panel. @Duhtch Does this behavior happen if you simply search for the tag, instead of using your saved search? If it does, I suppose it suggests this might be a (again very poorly designed & unnecessary) feature. I'd try to find the answer myself, but I no longer install updates in order to avoid precisely these kind of problems. Good luck!
  13. I agree with @gazumped, Evernote isn't really meant for long recordings, use a 3rd party app for that. HOWEVER: Evernote considers it a feature that when you are viewing/editing a note, Evernote overrides your device settings to keep the screen on. In this case, to be consistent, Evernote should logically keep the screen on when you are using Evernote to record sound, speech-to-text, etc. I think Evernote should not override my device settings! But if they're going to, they should do so consistently. cc: @Ian Small
  14. Second comment from FB: Anyplace else that the green button should appear? Does the iOS app have the same problem?
