  1. I do agree. It was just wishful thinking about my friends, several of whom are Free users :-)
  2. This is why I am a Premium user :-) My point is, EV guys should put more practical information on the upgrade page. The feature which sold me to the Premium is not even mentioned there. And it is very difficult to discover it's existence, even if you are Premium user. The feature is called "Version History" :-)
  3. I think what they mean here is that, compared to free users, your maximum note size is 4X larger. Premium users can create notes up to 25mb, while premium and business users can create notes up to 100mb, or 4X the size of a free user. Here are the limits for various tiers of Evernote service: https://evernote.com/contact/support/kb/#!/article/23283158 granted, I am routinely puzzled at the opaqueness and sparseness of pre-sale marketing material. Why is this relegated to the knowledge base, which I see as largely a post-sale resource. Some of these things are highly desirable features or changes and should be put front and centre on pre-sale marketing, not relegated to a knowledge base article! This is precisely my point. I know what advantages Premium subscription gives me. But if I were a Free user, Premium upgrade page does very little to convince me to upgrade. Again, for a beginner user, it is not obvious what single note size limit IS to calculate what 4X larger :-) This information is so obscure and located in a place nobody would look :-) I am, however, a bit disappointed that (according to the KB) they did not increase the quota for free users. Would be really nice if they would at least double the quota, instead of giving 4X quota to Premium. Honestly, I do not know anyone who would use 4Gb uploads per month. I could make a greate use of the 4Gb quota ONLY if I can have selective sync, i.e. leave some notebooks entirely on the server, without syncronizing them locally. Like Dropbox does. I could then upload some important and large documents, without killing local EV performance. Until then, it is just a nice gesture.
  4. I contacted support and they, indeed, confirmed 4Gb thing. Honestly, doesn't matter for me, if I will upload 4Gb per month to Evernote, my local database will be crawling even on the super-computer. What I am interested to see is... the official statement. What else is updated, apart from 4Gb. Max size of one note? Maximum number of notebook? What about free accounts and 60Mb limit, is it up too? It is a rather strange move, to substantially increase the monthly upload limit and not tell their customers... I haven't received any emails from Evernote about that, the web site still shows... nothing, really. Go to https://evernote.com/premium/ and you will find NO information. Like this one: Quote: "Notes are four times larger so you can pack Evernote with large files and hi-res images." Four times larger than what? How much is it? There used to be a page where one can compare the packages, not anymore.
  5. While you are waiting for EV team to reply :-) http://www.thewindowsclub.com/how-to-prevent-users-from-installing-programs-in-windows-7 ( especially this part, I don't know if EV uses MSI for installations or not: This setting affects Windows Installer only. It does not prevent users from using other methods to install and upgrade programs. ) and also: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/how-to-configure-windows-to-run-only-specified-programs
  6. You have you add file:// in front of the path after you paste it in evernote. It is simply a URL to a file. Move the cursor at the end of the path, click Enter and EV will recognize this string as a clickable URL. For example: file://C:\Windows
  7. It depends: Power Users can: • Run legacy applications, in addition to Windows 2000 or Windows XP Professional certified applications. • Install programs that do not modify operating system files or install system services. • Customize systemwide resources including printers, date, time, power options, and other Control Panel resources. • Create and manage local user accounts and groups. • Stop and start system services which are not started by default. Power Users do not have permission to add themselves to the Administrators group. Power Users do not have access to the data of other users on an NTFS volume, unless those users grant them permission. So, if they are power users, the can install Evernote without admin. I do not think Evernote modifies OS files or installs drivers. Thank you for your reply, in this case the users are not power users at all, they are just regular users, they cannot install anything else but evernote, is the most bizarre thing i have aver seen, in a test computer it even installed with the guest account, i tried even removing any install rights in the windows local policy and it still was able to install it, that is why im desperately looking for help, my concern is if this happens with evernote, what is preventing viruses to behave the same way, also the software is not allowed by company policy, not sure why but the owners don't want it install. Whatever it is... I doubt Evernote can do something about it... It is not for the software to decide whether it CAN be installed. Windows makes this decision. If Windows allows MSI package to be installed, there is nothing stops Evernote from proceeding. Contact support and let us know. I am curious too.
  8. Lock your computer when you walk out of it. WinKey+L. If you allow other people to use your computer under your credentials, you have much bigger problems to worry about. All your private information, including My Documents, Skype, Dropbox, etc etc, is wide open to anyone. If you have other members of your familiy accessing your computer, create separate windows accounts for them. Easy! :-) Other logged in users, unless they are local admins, cannot find/view your evernote database. By default it is stored in your local profile. To access it from another account you have to know the password, or be the administrator. You can further protect the system by enabling encryption on the evernote files, but I would not recommend it. As for the Android phone... it is considered personal item by default and should be pass-protected. If somebody steal your phone, it will lock/destroy information after 10 incorrect attempts. Flushing the phone will also erase data. If I am not mistaken, EV database on Android is stored in the part where nobody can get access, unless the phone is rooted.

  10. It is convenient to have the links preserved. However, having the ability to right-click on an image in Evernote and select "remove hyperlink" when needed, is even more convenient :-) The problem is, there is NO way to remove the hyperlink. Even in your own note, where you simply copied small portion of content from the web and do not want to keep the link.
  11. Just noticed something odd. I regularly save pages from the web, using Evernote Clipper or simply by copy-paste. Often, images have hyperlinks to some other content. I want to remove some or all of them, so I do not accidentally open web pages when browsing through the notes locally. I can do it with text links (right-click -> remove hyperlink) but not with images. There is no Remove Hyperlink menu item when image is selected. The only way I found is to save the image, delete it from the note, and add it back in again. Not very productive if you have dozens of images in dozens of notes. While I am at it, it would be nice to have Remove Hyperlink functionality for the selected text (so any hyperlink within the selection will be removed).
  12. Apparently Evernote has made a change in the behavior of the "Copy Note Link" without providing us with any formal notice. You'd think something major like this would at least be in the Release Notes. The behavior now is to paste the external version (https) of the link when pasting into other apps. I hate this change. I use Copy Note Link almost every day to paste the internal link into apps like Outlook Calendar. This is something I cannot understand with Evernote. It is not the first software on the planet to deal with the need to paste with different formats. Thouthands of others have done it before and there is a standard solution for it. Basically, programs copy to the clipboard in MULTIPLE formats, allowing the target of paste to choose the best supported format. It is also possible to register own format id with clipboard and copy with both, plain text http format and evernote-style link. When pasting to Evernote check for presence of evernote-style link in clipboard and paste it, otherwise paste regular URL. Other programs do not know about Evertnote clipboard type at all and will always paste the good old text (http). Why re-inventing a wheel? Holding Ctrl + go to menu and select Copy Note Link is an awful solution. Very un-intuitive and counterproductive.
  13. Here are some issues I found in Evernote 5.2 (public release): - Currently used limit no longer changes. I have uploaded quite a few notes with documents in the last few days, no change in stats. Stuck at 1Mb used. - Synchronization progress no longer shown. No message at the end of the sync either. (Well, on Win7 PC I am getting Synchronization complete message, on Win 8.1 Pro not) - Problem with PDF attachments. I have attached a few "secure" PDFs, text copying is not allowed. For some reason I can copy text from these files in Evernote. Strange. I've opened them from Evernote in Adobe Reader and, indeed, text cannot be copied. They are standard PDFs (not scanned, created from word documents), they must be searchable, but text copying/extraction should be prohibited. - Undo note changes does not revert changes properly. Add a space (or anything) to an exiting note, undo the change (Ctrl + Z) -> the note's text is reverted, but Updated date/time is not. Thus, the note gets synced as changed with new updated date/time.
  14. Updated to 5.2 release. This does suggest resizing (see screenshot) :-) So, how do we resize images? It is very important functionality and one which is very easy to implement. A few lines of code to use bicubic interpolation. One thing to mention: crop function (and later on resize) could really benefit from optional proportions constraint. Like in photoshop and many other programs, if during resize you hold down shift key, the resizing/cropping box is restricted to it's original proportions... I am sure many people expect it, just as I am :-)
