    I have the same issue on iPhone. I will take a photo, share it with Evernote, then convert that to a daily journal entry by editing it on the Mac. Almost without fail, the next day I will see the photo again in my default notebook.
  2. web

    That's the point. I regularly use environments which have a browser but lack direct EN support. The web version also does not require software to be installed, a limitation in many environments. I would not want the web version to be the only way I interact with EN, but it is a fantastic fallback.
  3. Has anyone reported a bug against this? If not, I can report one.
  4. I came here to report the same thing but see others beat me to it. I was taking notes in a lecture last night and simply could not figure out what was going on for the first several minutes. I was using a 2012 Nexus 7 with a bluetooth keyboard / cover. It seems like the shift key did control key functions, e.g. shift-i toggled italics, shift-b toggled bold, etc.
  5. Martin, that's good input. My setup is Firefox under Solaris but I am unfamiliar with the underlying voodoo. All I know is that once the web EN client starting showing PDFs, the X server process started consuming lots of CPU and the whole desktop slowed to a crawl. If you know of a fix or can tell me where to download and install something to make things better, I would appreciate it. martyscholes, if i've good understood, you are speaking about the embedded PDF rendering in notes with PDF attached. On linux, with chromium i don't experience this performance issue. With firefox i got a 25% on two CPU threads (dual core + hyper threading, then 25% on a core) P.S: Sooner or later, a native client will come. Evernote can't ignore linux while others are not. Until EN continue ignoring Linux, i will use it only for testing. I have given up on a native EN client, but what kept me going was the web client, which is now broken. For what it's worth, Firefox doesn't seem to be the problem. The X server, Xnewt in my case, is being hammered every time the EN web client tries to render a PDF. Maybe it's Mozilla, maybe not. All I know is it started with the web upgrade a few months ago and there seems to be no way to make it stop. At all. Not being able to stop this behavior seems myopic, but there are smart people at EN, so there must be a sane reason for it. Thanks for the feedback. That seems a touch extreme. I never could find the build instructions for FF under Solaris.

  7. with web version you can't use evernote without a internet connection, you can't export notes you can't import notes etc. etc. If the web version is all you need, you don't need evernote I would also add that the new PDF rendering engine in the web client taxes the X server to the point where the whole desktop experience is degraded. Given that this feature cannot be disabled, I have asked that a bug be filed against it. I also use EN extensively in virtual machines and also use it extensively in my primary operating system. If there is not an EN client for my OS, then the web client needs to be well-behaved.

    Daniel, thanks for the quick reply. That is the answer I had feared. Wait and see, it seems. Thanks again.
  9. web

    Is there a way to disable PDF preview in the web client? Right-clicking just shows the standard web stuff (open in new window, etc.). The PDF rendering engine, while very cool, brings my browser and display to their knees. Where is the option to disable? Thanks, Marty
  10. In a vain attempt to make myself feel less silly, I will state, in my defense: Cut and paste from OpenOffice to web Evernote outside of Windows was a disaster I started using web clipper to capture pretty much everything Until yesterday, I never had a Windows machine both with Evernote and Word installedEarly on, Item (1) steered me away from copy / paste and (2) got me on the web browser path while (3) kept me from trying the obvious. It seemed so sane at the time...
  11. Well now, don't I feel foolish? Sadly, that had never occurred to me. It works like a charm -- thanks for the tip.
  12. Evernote for Android on my tablet is quickly becoming my preferred place to consume all of my content. As a result, it has become important that I have native viewing as I skim through the notes. Sadly, Android EN does not let you see Word or PDF documents in the note, but only as an attachment. Sure, I can (and do) store the documents in Evernote, but having to select the document, then wait, then watch it in a viewer completely destroys the cadence of viewing. Here is a way to convert Word documents so that they can be viewed natively on the Android Evernote client as well as natively on the web client. If this has been covered elsewhere and I missed it, I apologize. To make a nice note out of a web document: Open the document with Word (I use Word 2010) Save as a "web page" Copy all files and folders to a web server (I use mini-httpd under Ubuntu) View the page with Firefox on a different machine (I use Firefox 10.0.6 on Solaris) Clip full page to your Evernote accountThis combination produces beautiful pages viewable natively on the web and Android.
  13. Marco, I want EN on Linux too, mostly because I want EN on Solaris (my primary desktop) and the jump from a typical Linux distribution to Solaris is a small leap. The problem with a Linux port is that Linux is so fragmented. I mean, what is Linux? At its core, Linux is a kernel. But when you and I talk about Linux, it is so much more. What is the GUI? Most are X, but what about Android (which runs the Linux kernel). Technically, there is an Android port and therefore we already have a Linux port, but I doubt that's what you are referring to. Which session manager / desktop environment should they support? Gnome? KDE? All of the smaller variants out there? What about window managers and widgets? If EN targets the hardcore Linux folks then they need to include those who simply run twm. What about the old-school Motif and Athena guys? Should they ignore the OPEN LOOK people too? Linux has been ported to a bunch of CPUs and architectures. Should they include a MIPS version as well as x86? What about SPARC and the Alpha folks? Itanium? ARM sales are starting to dwarf x86, should they include that too? Besides hardware, what libraries should they assume exist on the target machine? What services? What dependencies should they assume are present? If you are thinking, "Let the package manager handle the dependencies" then we need to consider which package manager should be targeted. Redhat's RPM? Debian's system? Any of the myriad of others? Should they include it in the upstream repositories or target individual distributions? What would you tell the Gentoo folks who like to roll their own? What about Mint which itself has several sub-distributions? Going that far, should they then exclude all of the FreeBSD people as well? That opens up a whole other can of worms. In all of this, I still don't know which distribution you run, or if you rolled your own. The point is that there is no simple and straightforward solution to "make a Linux port." If I am wrong on any of the above, let me know. Thanks, Marty
  14. It's true that you can save information & retrieve it later with no internet access...as long as you are a premium user. To clarify, if you're using a desktop client, you don't need internet access. But the above is true for all mobile devices. This is *not* unadvertised. http://evernote.com/premium/ I realize EN may not be worth $45/year for everyone. But if it's something you rely upon heavily, it's a very cheap price to pay. It's not advertised to anyone considering the free version. THAT is what I am referring to. This is the Google play store description: "Evernote is an easy-to-use, free app that helps you remember everything across all of the devices you use. Stay organized, save your ideas and improve productivity. Evernote lets you take notes, capture photos, create to-do lists, record voice reminders--and makes these notes completely searchable, whether you are at home, at work, or on the go." "On the go" to me, means NO INTERNET. I think it does to most people, frankly. If I have internet access everywhere, I wouldn't even see the point of needing it. I would just access email, or my skydrive. THIS is from the Evernote site, describing the Evernote application. Nothing about FREE or PAID here, or Offline notes. Sync: Click to to manually sync your Evernote account. Evernote automatically syncs regularly, so using this button is optional. Sync ensures that everything in your Evernote account is available anytime and anywhere that you have access to Evernote, including on your phone, tablet, computer and on the Web. It seems purposefully deceptive, actually. And it's misleading, at best. I certainly understand your frustration and fell for it too. I would agree that if not misleading, it certainly is not crystal clear to the newcomer. I wondered the same and caught myself asking how it could keep everything on my tablet since my tablet storage could be far smaller than my notes database. It doesn't. As a fellow recent EN convert, I hope that you can still find value in the product and service. It is a limitation of EN as currently deployed. Honestly, it is a perfectly understandable limitation.

    While I admit that unknown data loss can be terrifying, I am curious as to when the notes are disappearing. Are they synchronized and disappearing? Unsynchronized and disappearing? Do certain clients lose notes more often?
