  1. There is an annoyance that if you have an encrypted note, decrypt it for viewing by entering the password and try to print it, you cannot. You'll just get the hidden version. The only way seems to be to permanently decrypt the note, print it, the re-encrypt it. I do not want to have to do this because it is annoying for one and 2, may result in the un-encrypted note being saved or synced, which I am trying to avoid by having it encrypted in the first place. Can you change the behaviour so that if it is unencrypted in the display, you can print it?
  2. Hi, I know this has been commented on in some of the release notes for the clipper elsewhere (by me and others), but it's really making my blood boil, so though I would post a thread here in the hope Evernote do in fact read the product feedback posts and take note. I hope this isn't too much of a duplicate of others requesting the same. Since the web clipper was updated some months back and the local save option removed, something I used multiple times daily with pleasure has become a constant annoyance for me. Save to cloud only is NOT an option for some of us. For instance, where I am, for whatever reason, my provider seems unable to reach evernote servers once in awhile. For me, the clipper then becomes a dead tool. Internet in all places in the globe is not always good. Mine here is very poor. Whilst I have broadband, it is slow, but it's the best I can get where I live. I just tried to clip a PDF. It's 139 pages. It's still sitting there minutes later, icons spinning. Now I have to manually request my desktop version sync so I can get it locally and work with that note(s). It's a stupid workflow. Very inefficient. The very things evernote is supposed to improve. it was almost perfect as it was, with local save enabled. It would create the note instantly and sync if needed in the background, when the internet was available, whilst I worked. This is not possible any more. Please, please, please bring back the local save option. Thanks.
  3. So I have the problem (2nd time in last couple months) where since last night, my evernote cannot connect to evernote servers from my home. This is a complete pain in the ass, because without the local save option, every time I try to clip a web page, I cannot. The evernote clipper just sits there, icons spinning, trying to bring up the organise section. There isn't actually another way I know of to easily clip the web page with the right formatting etc as clipper does. In the prior version with local save, this is no issue as the note is clipped locally and syncs to evernote in the background, seamlessly once EN server issues/internet issues are resolved. PLEASE, PLEASE bring back local clipping. I am seriously less satisfied with EN since this change happened. You do not realise how many issues it causes until the change came about. Although I love the cloud backup/storage and the whole sync thing, this type of issue is the reason I will never, ever go 100% cloud by choice. I need to be able to access my data when I want to and no matter how reliable EN side is over time, it always tends to fail when I need it! Cloud is my backup, not my primary. With the local storage option, you turn internet/en issues like this into a near non-event, vs a complete failure. Local save has to benifit EN as an organisation greatly? Please can someone from evernote comment on this. If the feature is never going to be brought back, I need to look at alternatives to the clip tool and in extreme, Evernote.
  4. Yes, totally, 100% I've even used it, maybe half a dozen times via the web gui in the years I've been using EN. I'm also very happy all my data is securely stored offsite and available across my many devices. For me, I use the android client and the windows client. It is far, far more efficient for me to work on the local client than try to use the web gui. I clip some long web docs (sometimes 100 page HTML statements etc) and want to work on them in EN right away - I can't (not anymore anyway). I have to wait for it to sync up to the cloud, them to process it, then it make it's way back down to my client - IMO, It's stupid. What took me seconds before can take minutes or longer now. When you add it to the client first, it starts a sync right away anyway, so all that happens neatly in the background and you just get on with working. Since they forced this change on us, I find myself swearing at EN, waiting for my local docs to sync so I can work on them. It's just a waste of my time and if I think about it, again, IMO, a far less reliable way to manage syncing local clips. I hope this explains why we don't like sync direct to the cloud, instead of the local clip option.
  5. Same here. Totally stupid if you ask me. I don't want all my data going up to the could, then back down, just so I can use it in the local client. Takes ages on a long clip and renders it useless if EN have any issues. Please evernote, based on the comments here, a large proportion of your userbase are not interested in the web interface. Please bring back local clipping.
  6. Hi, In the corporate environment, I used Outlook and the email clipper via the evernote plugin was incredibly good. Now I am outside of that environment, I'm using Windows 10 built in email client and miss the clipper terribly. I do forward emails to my evernote email address, but it's a very inefficient way to do this, slow waiting for the sync and then organise and adds/looses content you want. Are there are similar products to the email clipper for windows 10 email, or other email clients? Any plans for one?
  7. Hi, I am really, really missing the local save option for the clipper. I clips some large (100 pages+) HTML docs and it's really annoying to wait minutes for the clip, then the upload, then force a sync, just to get it in the local client (I rarely if ever use the web client). The same clip to local database happens in seconds then happily syncs in the background whilst I work locally or off-line even, so it's a vast improvement. It would be really good if you could add back the local save feature. It's very annoying to have to push it to the cloud then pull it back down just to work with the clip. Very slow too in my case. Thanks.
  8. thanks - really, really miss the local save - I hope they add it back...
  9. Hi, Some of my clips started taking ages. I noticed I can't access them via my app either as it has not synced with the cloud yet. I had my clipper set to clip locally to the app on my windows desktop to prevent these issues, but it seems that option has now gone away and it can only sync to the cloud? If this is the case, then I have to provide the feedback that this choice is very bad. Clipping large web documents for example can take minutes to the cloud, seconds to local storage, where the sync can happen nicely in the background. In addition, I rarely use evernote web, prefering the local app to do my work. What I just clipped is not in the app until after a sync, which is another inconvenience. If it is possible to change this, please let me know.
