  1. Hi Gazumped A lot of slowdown on Windows 10 on my laptop. I have Android on my phone, but that works fine. Thanks
  2. Sorry guys.... think I've discovered what the problem is . Evernote was also open on my phone, so I assume there is some form of lock mechanism to save multi-editing between devices. BTW, On a separate note I am experiencing a lot of sluggishness in editing notes this last week or so. (similar to how it used to be last year)
  3. Hi I was working away in Evernote this morning and all of a sudden every note has become 'read only'. I do not know how this happened or how to undo it. I have 15,000 notes in notebooks that aren't shared. On version . 6.4.4.4720. Checked for updates but tells me none available. I m totally screwed right no, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  4. Not a screen shot, it's the Copy Selection that I have a problem with. Here are my shortcuts.. I make a selection (highlight a paragraph in Chrome, for example),, press the shortcut to send to Evernote, then the error message pops up.
  5. Hi csihiiling. Just tried that but same issue.
  6. Restarting the computer doesn't work. I've had this issue for a week or so now, and it is powered off every night.
  7. Thanks Could you point me to something that shows how to do a 'system power cycle' please
  8. Hi Gazumped Thanks for your reply. I do use the Chrome clipper for clipping full articles, and I could use this to also clip selections... but it is just so much quicker using the Alt + X keyboard shortcut to clip a paragraph or two to Evernote in just one keystroke. The settings I refer too are in Evernote - under Tools -> Options -> Shortcut keys. I have no idea why this no longer works.
  9. Hi I have been Alt + X for clipboard capture (in Chrome) for a long, long time, but suddenly it has stopped working, with the "Clipboard capture failed" message attached. I tried going into options and setting a different key combination but produce the same error dialogue too. Thank you in advance Nick
  10. AHA... think I've sorted it! If I was previously using a saved search, and type intitle:somePhrase in the search bar, even though the search information shows the correct search format, the search doesn't work. However, if I click the X on the previous search to clear it, then type new (intitle:) search, everything works fine!!
  11. I have 15k notes, and have started to use search more often now to find specific notes that I want to retrieve from the distant past. However when I use the search term intitle:someWord or intitle:"some string of words" in the search bar Evernote draws a blank, which is plainly wrong as I then spend some time manually finding those notes. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a bug in Evernote search? Thanks in advance
  12. Thank you Evernoters. Things do seem to be looking up.
  13. Thanks gazumped. Could you point me to a link that tells me how to do a 'clean install' that ensures I don't lose and data, please?
  14. Hi peeps The larger my Evernote database gets (8000 notes, 6MB) the slower it seems to get. 'Evernote not responding' regularly appears as I click and browse the notes. Following Phil Libin missive a few months ago where he announced that the near term focus would be on performance, I took the decision to bear with it and hope that things improved, but using Evernote has become a painful experience now. I would love to be offered hope here. P.S. I'm running 5.4.1.40047
  15. It would be really interesting to hear from any active users, with a similar sized database, who are NOT experiencing these issues. That way, it maybe possible to determine what the difference is, which could then point to a possible solution.
  16. Thank you for your full response jbenson2. I guess I was optimistically fishing for some kind of reassurance that things could be fixed, or would be fixed, fairly soon. Oh well! Hmmm... I wonder if Evernote are still touting this as a viable option. I understand it could potentially be a pain in the ass, but so is switching to Onenote at this point, and I need to do something fairly soon.
  17. Hi Evernoters For some time now, I've been experiencing a delay of up to 10 seconds between the time I select notes in the notes list, and the contents of those notes then displaying in the right hand window. Maybe it's just a coincidence, but it seems that this problem has got worse as the size of my notes database has grown (now 6GB, 7000 notes). Running the re-index/clean-up function in debug mode doesn't help. I can't see that my computer is an issue either, as every other program I use just flies - I'm running Win7 64bit with 8mb RAM on a very fast workstation. There's a separate, secondary issue where Evernote hangs for 20 seconds or so before it responds again, but this doesn't seem related to the main issue. I thought that after Phil Libin's last missive -- with the good news that the team were focusing on performance -- the Windows client would start getting zippier, but things are getting worse for me, and seriously disrupting my workflow now. So, I was just wondering if any other power-users out there are experiencing this problem, and if so, is there a remedy, or workaround, that could help speed things up in the short term. Thanks in advance.
  18. I downloaded version 5.3.0.2999 this morning, and since the text formatting seems to be screwed. If I split a paragraph by pressing 'Enter' at the end of a sentence within an existing paragraph, the font of the new paragraph changes from the default Tahoma 12 point to Helvetica,Arial 11 point. Also, if I change the font colour of a word/sentence, the font colour used in the remainder of the paragraph reverts back to the default black. This cripples my workflow as I do a lot of test editing in this manner. Is there a simple way to revert back to a previous version, or do you think this is something that could be rectified reasonably quickly? I using 64 bit Windows 7. Thanks in advance.
  19. KGB (and Windpower)... you are a frickin genius. Thank you.
  20. I would love to see this return too. It was such a simple, intuitive way of allowing us to customise the desktop -- on an ad-hoc / current-context basis -- so everything needed was just at hand. That said, the short-cuts in the sidebar is still an improvement. What would be optimal would be for the user to have option to use both.
  21. For what its worth, I don't have an issue with in-app notifications. They're quick (maybe on screen for 5 - 10s in the bottom right) but they are enough for me. As for email reminders, that is only for the daily digest of what is due that day. That's not an email for each reminder --- although that would be a nice feature to be able to turn on. An email that is a daily digest of what is due that day would be fine by me too... but I don't receive those. I would try checking on the web client to see what your settings are there. It might be an issue where the Windows client isn't setting them properly (in which case let me know). Hi dlu. Yes... the correct email address is set, and 'reminder email' is checked, in the web client too. YAY... I have email notification of reminders! Thank you, dlu. Nick, what did you do to fix this? I was having the same issues of not receiving any emails for either personal notes or business notes. I just checked the web version and all looked fine there... In any case, I just set up a bunch of emails for tomorrow...hopefully I get an email! Hi Xabi... I did nothing. I suddenly started receiving emails. I assume the fix is something that dlu must have sorted at his end.

  25. Could you please make reminders remind me when they are due. This is a two-fold problem: 1) Not receiving any email reminders, even though the option is selected under 'reminders' tab in Options. 2) No in app. notifications (unless i have missed them!). Surely a reminder should be persistent, until it has received a user acknowledgement that the reminder has been seen. Thank you
