  1. Is the current database encrypted at rest (on the disk)? I cannot find anywhere that addresses this question. I use Evernote quite a bit for personal and professional reasons. Recently I was issued a corporate laptop and would love to install EN on it, but the company regularly scans the data on the laptop. If I put EN on the corporate laptop, I would want assurances that the corporate scanning would not ingest all of the private data I have stored in EN. Currently I use the web version, and that’s fine, but a local copy would be even better. Does Evernote encrypt the database at res
  2. I came here to request the same. It looks like this is being addressed. It would be helpful for me to have the images appear in some deterministic order in the note.
  3. This is an update after the support request. I was told to download 10.1 and try it, so I did. I did not see any change. Instead, I switched all notebooks not to download, then one by one flipped them to download. The process took several days on the iPad and iPhone, but the iPad claims to have completed and the iPhone is almost done. I noticed that even though the 110 GB database is completely downloaded, the Settings app under General -> Storage claims that Evernote is using 1.18 GB. Clearly, monitoring this number is not indicative of download progress. I think that with many notebo
  4. I have opened support request 3193679 to address this issue, asking for guidance on how to download offline notebooks. I will post the resolution to this thread.
  5. My offline downloads are going backwards. Previously, Evernote was consuming 4.8 GB of storage. Today, EN is consuming 3.0 GB of storage. All notebooks are offline, pretending to download. I have 383 GB of free space on my iPad, so free space clearly is not the problem.
  6. That is a good point. It’s a shame that iOS EN cannot use my Mac as a cache and simply pull the notes from there. It is powered up on the local network.
  7. I am starting to convince myself that this is both an issue with iOS and with Evernote server capacity. A year or so ago, I had an issue that required uninstalling Evernote on the iPad, reinstalling and then downloading. I had expressed concern to EN support that a download would take a while, some 75 GB of data. Support told me it would happen within a few hours. I left the iPad on and the app in the foreground and let it rip. Within three or four hours, it had downloaded everything, sustaining about 100 Mb/s of read rate. Based on that, my current 112 GB database should easily download
  8. You are correct. The first six years I used EN I did exactly that: predicting which notebooks I would need when I lacked reliable and fast connectivity. It happened often enough that I was unable to predict what I would need and when I could connect that during my last hardware refresh, I opted to pay the extra $100 or so for additional storage and decided just to keep a local copy on the iPad and iPhone. From that moment forward, I never found myself needing a note that was not downloaded. That is, until I installed this version.
  9. Agreed on Magic Keyboard support. I recall that the following functionality was present in the previous version but is now missing: Command N creates a new note in the current notebook in the old but not current version Drag and drop of photos in split screen no longer works. I used this daily but it now seems to do nothing
  10. This summer I bought the Raven Original document scanner that provides sheetfed scans, OCR, and drops straight into Evernote with no computer in the middle. This has forever changed how I think of scanners, making all of my previous sheetfed scanners feel like artifacts from a bygone era. I have scanned thousands of pages this summer with it. Buy the Raven scanner and never look back.
  11. I came here to say the same. I switched to the new version a week or so ago. I love the improved speed and am starting to get accustomed to the new interface, but am struggling with downloading the notebooks for iPad and iPhone. I have 19,980 notes, a dozen or stacks and several dozen notebooks. The current database size is 110+ GB. I am unsure when or if both devices will finish synchronizing.
  12. The auto-refresh feature bit me today. I was searching for a note with a PDF (referencing it in an email), found and opened the PDF, found the information I needed in the PDF, then switched to the email to continue writing. When I returned (less than 20 seconds later) to Evernote, it was back to the top of the search results. I had to scroll down past several dozen notes, find what I previously found, re-open the PDF, then scroll down the PDF to where I previously was, which was somewhere around page 40. By the time I found the right information in the PDF, I had forgotten what information I n
  13. I have three devices that automatically sync my entire Evernote database. EN sync logic is very good, but depends on a solid internet connection for all devices, something that is not always available, especially when traveling. Right now I am traveling with such poor WiFi and LTE coverage that some notes are taking longer then a day to upload from one device, and then can take even longer to download to the other town 8devices. Ideally I could make any change on any device then all three devices would sync among themselves via Bluetooth or other local technology. Then, when any one device has
  14. I did not realize until now that there was a way to sort by title. All of these notes are titled with the date in sort order, e.g. 2019 09 21. That certainly fixes this issue for me, yet leaves me wondering why the iOS version of EN kept this capability out of the software.
