  1. 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.
  2. @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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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/
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. @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!
  8. 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
  9. Second comment from FB: Anyplace else that the green button should appear? Does the iOS app have the same problem?
  10. OK here's what I posted on FB re this video. First comment: I was very encouraged by @Ian Small's prompt reply:
  11. Maybe it could attach the original headers (or even the full source!) to the note as a text object? That way they'd be preserved, and searchable. I like the idea of being able to forward something by email to EN without having to save the original in my email system in case EN mangles it when turning it into a note.
  12. I just made some feedback I'm quite proud of on the Facebook version of this announcement. Should I re-post my feedback here, or are people able/willing to follow the link and tell me what I got wrong over on Facebook?
  13. Thank you for all that detail. My thoughts: In EN for Windows, restoring the database files themselves (everything under C:\Users\<userid>\Evernote\Databases) does preserve note history, it restores the database to exactly where it was when the backup was made. Can restore to a temp location and tell EN client to use that location while you restore what is needed. I looked quickly at the enex format spec and didn't see anything about history. Are you saying the enex format preserves note history? Good to know. Also, I just re-ran a test that I haven't done since Jan 2017. Turns out EN for Windows does preserve note history after you move the note to a different notebook. Great news! I wonder when that changed? Will it change back? Anyways, thanks for pointing that out.
  14. I forgot to say, I haven't tried exporting a note, or saving it in enml, but I doubt either of those formats keep note history.
  15. An advantage of keeping your own backup of Evernote is, when you move a note from one notebook to another, the note history doesn't come with it, and is therefore no longer available to you. Evernote will NOT restore this note history, even if you undo the move. But, if that note history was important, you could restore (or extract) from your backup of the local EN database.
  16. So far we've seen mostly UI presentations. IMO the improvements with the highest return, BY FAR, are to be found in the area of code quality, regression testing, operations, etc. I hope that gets covered.
  17. Have you opened a ticket? If you get a chance, can you post the version info (from the activity log, not the settings) here?
  18. That kind of backup is secure vs. equipment failure (yours or theirs) but the most common use of backups is to recover from user or admin error, e.g. accidentally deleting something or discovering a bug that causes corruption. In which case, unless you are lucky and discover the problem before sync happens, relying on Evernote's backups to help you recover is no good. They will only 'restore' your account to the most recent version of it, which would be the corrupt version in this scenario.
  19. Hi @NanetteK, I have this type of problem too. Unfortunately, Evernote's text editor has many issues, particularly with cut-and-paste. I use the Windows and Android apps, and sometimes the Web, but the iOS folks have similar problems. Cut-and-paste that involves checkboxes are particularly a problem. They've been promising fixes for ages, and there have been a few, piecemeal fixes, but there have also been new bugs introduced into the editor. To make your problem more clear, at minimum, you should include information about what device you are using, and the version numbers of all relevant software/apps, including the Operating System. Additionally, it looks like the problem you are having is the kind that is hard to describe in writing. Perhaps you could try making a video of the problem happening on your device? Upload the video to YouTube, then post the link here in the forums. I can't say if that extra effort will result in a fix, but it will make very clear exactly the problem you are having.
  20. Had to factory reset my Pixel 2 XL for reasons unrelated to Evernote. After re-installing all my apps, I am running EN 8.9.1. The saved search problem is back. Exact same symptoms as ticket #2804215 which forum users can read about at:
  21. My saved searches have also gone missing, except for some (not all!) of the shortcuts that point to saved searches. HATE THIS.
  22. If I read correctly, the OP has access to both Mac and Windows clients. The GIMP has Linux, MacOS and Windows flavors. Re the Applescript approach: you would probably have to include a step to access the EN API, in order to tell EN to sync the changes?
  23. Hi, I think this is a windows problem. But the image capture started on Android, so I've included that info too. EN 8.9.1 on Android 9 on Pixel 2 XL. EN (308474) Public (CE Build ce-62.1.7539) on Win 7 To reproduce: EN for Android: Use the plus icon to create an new image note. Capture 1 image, include a few lines of text if you like. After sync, the note size reported by EN for Windows is 923 KB Using EN for Windows, right click the image and rotate counter-clockwise. The note size is now 1.1 MB. Using EN for Windows, right click the image and choose Annotate. Using Annotate tool, crop the image to about 50% of it's original size. Apply the changes. On the menu, pick Save and Exit to return to EN for Win. The note size reported by EN for Windows is now 2.4 MB! I definitely recall this being a problem in the Windows client several years ago, but I've searched the discussion forums and can't find any mention of it. Is this a known issue? Time & mood permitting, will open a ticket...
  24. The GIMP has nice features for batch editing, and fully supports command-line options. Perhaps there is a way to use the API, or (!) a screen scrape from the Web client, to automate the process of correctly sizing images and sync'ing those changes.
