  1. charboyd's post in Does Apple Pencil work with Penultimate? was marked as the answer   
    Hi AlanDickey,
    While the Apple Pencil will 'work' on an iPad Pro, it will mostly simulate the same function as using your finger. Future releases should show additional compatibility with Penultimate. Keep an eye out for updates!

  3. charboyd's post in Can I unmerge my notes? was marked as the answer   
    If you would like to retain the original notes as individual notes, or if you mistakenly merge notes, you can restore each individual note from your 'Trash' notebook.
  4. charboyd's post in Can an image be resized? was marked as the answer   
    Yes! (and no) You can resize images on your Evernote for Mac Desktop. Any images that you have in a note can be resized by clicking on them and dragging the corner.

    I realize that the OP was asking for Windows and Android - This is currently not available for those device, but hopefully will in future versions.
  5. charboyd's post in How to add people to an existing Work Chat discussion was marked as the answer   
    You can not add new participants to an existing work chat. When you attempt to add a new person to a chat, a new chat is automatically created in order to keep the info private.

  9. charboyd's post in Why does it say email address is still being used after I deactivated my account? was marked as the answer   
    Evernote does not allow two accounts to have the same email address - even if you deactivate an account. Deactivating your account basically means you are turning off your account access. Evernote doesn’t automatically delete your notes when you deactivate your account. 
    You will need to reactivate your account, change the email address, and only then will that address be available to be used on another account. 
  10. charboyd's post in How to encrypt a note on ipad was marked as the answer   
    You can not currently encrypt on an iOS device. 

    You can, however, encrypt text on Evernote for Mac or Evernote for Windows Desktop.

    Open a note and highlight the text you wish to encrypt
    Right-click or control-click the highlighted text and select  "Encrypt Selected Text"
    Enter a passphrase into the form. You will need to enter this passphrase whenever you attempt to decrypt this text. Do not forget this passphrase, because Evernote does not store this information anywhere.
    Once you have set the passphrase and confirm, the text will be encrypted
    To decrypt the text in the future, click on the encrypted text and select 'Show encrypted text'. You will be prompted to enter your passphrase. You may also permanently decrypt the text using the same process.

  11. charboyd's post in From Devonthink to Evernote was marked as the answer   
    From the Devonian Times, I've found instructions on how to export: 
    To export documents as standard files, select them in your DEVONthink database and select File > Export > As Files and Folders. DEVONthink recreates the group structure in your database as closely as possible, additional metadata is added in the form of harmless ‘DEVONthink_storage’ files (simple text files).
    Alternatively, DEVONthink can export your documents in a number of formats that require conversion, e.g. as pure text, rich text, or OPML. Multiple selected email messages can also be exported in the standard Unix mailbox format. You can find all export options in the File > Export sub-menu.
    (http://blog.devontechnologies.com/2009/03/tuesday-tip-export-your-data-transparently/)  Once you have exported your data to the desktop, you can easily import to Evernote:  Download Evernote onto your computer, create an Evernote account, and log into Evernote Open and expand your .zip files into folders on your computer. Usually you can simply double-click or right-click on a .zip file to create a folder full of your notes. The import step is a little different with each note note-taking service and computer. This is a general overview. Windows: Open Evernote for Windows desktop and select Tools > Import Folders then browse to the folder you created by extracting your .zip file. You may find the folder in Local Disk > Users > your username > Desktop or Downloads. Select the notebook and then select OK and the files inside that folder will import into Evernote. Mac: In your Mac finder, browse to and open the folder you created by extracting your .zip file. You should see your notes inside that folder. Open Evernote for Mac. Select all the notes inside your folder and drag them into a folder or your Note List. Additionally, you can drag a file right into an Evernote folder or your Evernote Note List to add that file as an Evernote note.  The files you just imported will appear as individual notes inside an Evernote notebook. Right-click or control-click on any notebook and select Rename to change the notebook title. It's possible that photos and documents will not be attached after the import. You can easily drag and drop the attachments right into Evernote notes

  13. charboyd's post in [Mac] "Copy Note Link" Now Links to Web When Text Is Hyperlinked? was marked as the answer   
    Quote from DLu:
    In regards to notelinks, the Windows client is using new behavior and I'll clarify a bit more on it.
    If you select "Copy Note Link" and paste back into Evernote, you should see no change in behavior. You should get the green note links with the note title as the anchor text
    If you select "Copy Note Link" and paste anywhere else (such as into a browser address bar or notepad) you will see an https.... link. This link will behave better "out in the wild" outside of Evernote. Virtually every operating system knows how to deal with an https link (in case you don't have Evernote installed on that particular machine) and there is a way to add that note to your account or even request access to it if you don't have permission to view the note. Under the old system, users would run into various issues when pasting a note link outside of Evernote and we're trying to streamline that process.
    In the Evernote for Windows client, if you select your note(s) and then hold down Ctrl then go up to the menu bar and select Notes >> Copy Note Links then you will always get old behavior.
