  1. This thread is a life-saver for our entire company workforce and school system of many hundreds of users. I rarely comment on Evernote message boards because generally speaking the software works as intended and has been consistent in quality for years. Somehow, Evernote 10 is completely unusable and inoperable. I won't go into details as it's clear from this thread - apart from it being a slow/sluggish, incompatible, lack of keyboard shortcut, and slashed essential feature-set version - all developed over years of customer research and discovery (ie. listening to your fanbase), that I a
  2. Agreed. The Evernote Watch app is in desperate need of a functionality update and upgrade. Also, I cannot seem to find the app anymore in the watch app store?
  3. Yes, this is high priority for our students as well. We have Evernote premium accounts for our writing classes of hundreds of students and have been trialing the transition in a few classrooms to alternative writing software such as Focused to eliminate distractions while our students write. We have considered something like this: https://setapp.com/how-to/how-to-write-distraction-free It would be very similar to Evernote's "Presentation" mode that ALLOWED text editing (writing). Our students continue to press the "Presentation" mode and attempt to type; frustration ensues when they reali
  4. This has been happening to me for 2 years now. I often use the shortcut: command + option/alt + 3 -> which jumps me to the Tags section of evernote. I am on MacOS Sierra, version 10.12.6. Using Version 7.5.1 (457132 App Store) of Evernote. However, this has been happening to me through all of the versions for the last 2 years. It only crashes about 3-4x/week, and with extensive use that is not terrible (which is why I never bothered to report).
  5. I agree. I am a little TOO locked into Evernote + Lastpass. I use the passphrase reminders, have about 20 of them now. Passwords however should be unique, 12+ characters long with unique characters. This is not very conducive to "passphrase reminders". Thus, the only reasonably safe method to keep sensitive information in Evernote is to use Lastpass to generate a unique password, use that password to encrypt each text in Evernote, and then dig up ALL encrypted messages throughout Evernote at the frequency you feel comfortable updating your password (I would recommend, at a minimum once per yea
  6. This is a very relevant topic. I have old notes with my old encryption pass-phrases. It is scary because there's no way you'll remember all of the passphrases over time, nor is it smart to keep your passphrase the same for all of eternity... The fact that passphrases are not consistent, lastpass + evernote is also something I've started to implement slowly. Evernote needs to REALLY step up their encryption/security game. It's BAD. I know Evernote's response will be, "Don't use Evernote for sensitive information". Easier said than done. I won't even get into the fact tha
  7. So I upgraded to the new beta, and still no luck with editing PDF files in preview. Rather than saving to the original file (which it used to do), an essential function keeping files synchronized and a seamless workflow, it asks to create a copy of the PDF. This would mean, each time I make some edits to a file, I would have to save a new file on the desktop, and drag that new file back into the same evernote note (deleting the initial attachment, and replacing it with the new), and synchronizing, to have access to the edited file in evernote. To see how it should actually work - e
  8. This is really important and exciting to get fixed! The annotation capabilities are useless when it comes to filling out extensive PDF forms. Prior to this problem, I could work my way through an extensive application using PDF Pen Pro or Preview, checking off boxes, throwing in signatures, filling in text boxes, click save, and the file would be synchronized for me to access and edit the PDF file anywhere else. Now, as we all know, it tries to make a copy of the file and save it somewhere else. For whatever reason, this problem does NOT exist for Microsoft Word documents for example. I
  9. Thanks! Why are all these people talking about it, but nobody voting for it (except me now +1)? https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/101199-merge-note-improvement-request/?comment=437319&do=findComment
  10. @Antonia @ jj Select the text you'd like to have encrypted --> click Edit from menu --> select "Encrypt selected text"
  11. @DTLow Regarding point two, I am always paranoid of the 'best' way to replace a file (ie. pdf or word document) within a note if the file has the same name... For your Step 2 above, after saving the new file to the desktop, what is the exact order of actions you take to replace the original? I've tried it in the past and it had reverted back to the old document at times. I have had luck with the following: 1. delete the original word/pdf/excel file inside the note 2. click and drag the new file into the note (with the exact same name... ie. newchapter.doc or bug.pdf) 3. hit the
  12. @Michael Harrison Indeed that is genius... thanks! It DOES sound potentially dangerous though haha - using at own risk... hmmm, any potential pitfalls here.... ?
  13. Agreed, very nonsensical. Is there a bug or feature request page created to request this fix for Mac - to control the ordering of merged notes? Where would one find such a feature request... I would vote for it
  14. Interesting find @eric99! Thanks for sharing. It has kick-butt reviews on the Google Play store, 4.5/5 stars with >62,000 reviews. Easy notebook encryption is what we currently need for our school and individual PDF encryptions to export into EN is rather janky and unproductive. Xodo looks to be an alternative to PDF Pen Pro on the Mac, or PDF Expert on iOS, correct me if I'm wrong. A powerful PDF editor yes, but that seems to be about it? These two apps mentioned, and even Preview for Mac offers password encryption of PDF's. Thanks!
  15. Hi DTLow, Thanks but no correction is needed - I suppose you didn't ready my post entirely. We just said the exact same thing My request above is simple what you and I both just said: Thanks
