  1. Was this question answered somewhere and I missed it? I've now realized that a whole bunch of links I've created in Evernote in the past couple of weeks aren't working the way I'd like them to. It'd be nice to find an easy way to just replace the links, rather than redo each one. (And the https links for me are opening the web browser, and staying there - there's no redirect to my browser.) As far as I know there is no automated method for changing these links. You'll have to make the changes yourself. Not sure why your browser isn't redirecting....
  2. There is a warranty. Have you contacted Evernote Marketplace Support or Adonit? That would be the first step.
  3. And wordpress now natively supports markdown, which is great for me. I can draft things in Evernote in Markdown and past it into Wordpress, or vice versa, without any formatting probs.
  4. Filing a ticket through the support site is a good way to help Evernote fix this. I think there are probably a variety of bugs and contextual/environmental/user idiosyncrasies, not a single bug, underlying this problem. Submitting a support ticket will allow Evernote to potentially collect helpful information from you.
  5. Hmmm puzzling, unfortunately I do not have an android device to try and troubleshoot this on. Thankfully there's a lot of android users around here who might be able to chime in.
  6. Could you describe in a bit more detail what the issue is? Is the application not responding? Is it responding, but then getting stuck or frozen?
  7. I have not tried Sentinote. I should probably take a close look since I really do need to get my blog going properly. But at the same time I am really considering just making a big switch to Octopress/Jekyll.
  8. If they did not want to compete with Blogger, Wordpress etc ten they are confusing (potential) users with this on their website: The easiest way to blog hmmm I may have been a bit unclear. I suppose they are competing in the sense that they are offering a service in the same category as Blogger and Wordpress. I guess my point was more that they don't appear to be attempting to match or replicate or the type of blogging platform being offered by Blogger and Wordpress. Postach.io is blogging "light", while Blogger and Wordpress are (arguably) full-blown blogging platforms. I guess I see Postach.io as Honda Civic, while Blogger and Wordpress are like high-end BMW and Mercedes. Honda is competing with the other two inasmuch as they are all making cars, but Honda is really catering to a customer that just needs to get somewhere without advanced features and luxury of the BMW/Merc. Odds are if you are buying a Civic, you weren't just about to buy a BMW z5. They are both cars but not really directly competing. The number of people who are just as likely to buy a Civic as they are a z5 is likely quite small. However, If you are buying a BMW z5, you quite likely might have also been looking at a Mercedes SLK. The number of people who would consider a z5 and ALSO an SLK is probably quite large. So, yes Postach.io is arguably competing with Blogger and Wordpress, but I would suggest that they are offering a fundamentally different service. Nobody thinks a Civic is stealing customers away from the SLK, and the Civic isn't trying to. I would suggest that Postach.io is just the same. I think Postach.io is grabbing people who might not have been on Wordpres or Blogger, or who ARE on those platforms but for whom those platforms are excessive. Anyway, a bit of a digression ultimately. Postach.io - Dead simple blogging for people who don't need the stuff of WP or Blogger. Competing? Not Competing? I dunno. I understand your point, but with the cars you have a physical product you can look at & very quickly evaluate its slot in the market. With a virtual product this is not possible. So someone who hears that it is possible to extend EN's functionality to blogging (as I did) without any further info, caveats or, to use your analogy, indication of which type of car you are getting is not right. Furthermore, the company does itself more harm than good because they end up frustrating people who will walk away (like I did) & are unlikely to come back. Moreover, EN users can still use EN to prepare their Blogger or Wordpress posts with. So as far as I am concerned as an ex-Postach user, I don't care how they play it because, as the saying goes, there are plenty of fish in the sea, and very tasty ones at that, like there are plenty of cars in the market, one is not limited to that Honda Civic or BMW Z5. Can't disagree with you on that! You're spot on, really the only way to tell Postach.io's potential is to try it, which you did, and so did I. After a while, we both saw it wasn't for us. It did "cost" a few hours of work on each end to get my stuff INTO Postach.io, and then OUT of it in the end, but no harm done. I had a sense of what I was getting into at the time anyway, and thought it might work. It didn't.
  9. Very strange! Only Evernote is in a position to answer this question, and as history shows, they aren't likely to fess up to any plans!

  11. There's no question Postach.io is a great but VERY light weight blogging platform and I think it was done that way by design. I don't think Postach.io set out to necessarily compete with or match the features of Wordpress or Blogger. I think Postach.io was intended to help reduce the friction of posting on those websites by stripping a platform down to its core. I gave postasch.io a whirl and never was my blog more active than in those days. I have Evernote running any time I am at my computer, so posting something was a trivial matter of writing a few words, adding a tag, and syncing. I've relocated back to wordpress for a variety of reasons (I'm not entirely happy with WP either, I'll be moving again sometime), but my post frequency has dropped considerably. Postach.io is great for getting posts out there, but it is NOT blogger or wordpress, and I am not surprised many people have moved (back) to those platforms. If you are running a serious blog that has some branding associated with it (I use "branding" loosely), Postach.io isn't going to be a great fit necessarily. Strange to hear reports about bad support, granted I was trying it out in the earlier days, but during that time, I found support to be rather responsive. Perhaps it is growing pains.
  12. The auto-title setting is the setting you are referring to. It is designed to grab calendar and location information to generate (hopefully) meaningful note titles automatically. Likely, the first time you launched evernote it asked for permission to access your calendar, which you granted. It probably also asked for permission to access your location which you may or may not have granted. It seems that Evernote tries to grab a calendar event, and if there is no event at that time, or no all-day event that day, it will use your location if you granted it access to your location.
  13. The flow for logging into a new installation of Evernote is rather odd in that the default is to present the "sign-up" form rather than the "log-in" form. I support the rationale is to reduce the friction as much as possible for new users who didn't sign up on the web. The consequence is that if an existing user is moving quickly, they might inadvertently create a NEW account if they happen to enter an alternate email address or something along those lines (otherwise Evernote would just indicate that the email has already been used). Easy enough to have happen I suppose, and this two-account thing seems to happen frequently. Fingers crossed for you!
  14. 1) The idea of allowing a user selectable default has been mentioned here and there in several posts. Personally I think it is a good idea. No word from EN staff, but that's normal. Another one is to include the Classic Note Link in the menu bar so mac users can assign their own hotkey to the task. 2) The https:// link is nice because it means that a user doesn't have to have the evernote client installed, and allows things like offering a recipient to request access to the note. From the horses mouth: I think that is the primary benefit of the https:// link. If you happen to have evernote on the machine you use to click the link, it will redirect to the Evernote app itself. So while less elegant than Classic Note Links, it will always work everywhere. So, if you are uncertain, the https:// link is a great way to go. Keep in mind that even new note links paste as evernote:/// when pasted into evernote itself, so if you only ever work in Evernote, you'd notice no difference in the behaviour because they behave the same either way. If you are pasting into an external application, and you know that you or the recipient will ALWAYS have evernote installed, then the classic link is your friend. Does that help a bit?
  15. As GrumpyMonkey speculated, there is no mobile website and it affects both iOS and Android devices based on your experience. Indeed, even if you could access the web interface, there's no way to right-click on a tablet, nor is there a way to hold ctrl/cmd while clicking to select multiple notes. As such, even if you could get to the web interface, you'd be unable to do any of those things.
  16. Found the website, it is no longer around. The post now contains a dead link: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/41632-evernote-for-adhd/ The poster (and I suppose, author) of that website is still active on these forums, so you might have some company! A-HA! Turns out the site is still alive: http://evernoteforadd.wordpress.com
  17. I just did a quick google search and some website came up related to Evernote at ADHD, though how much help and how interactive they are, I cannot say. I also remember seeing someone with a blog dedicated to their experience with Evernote as someone with ADHD but I can't seem to find it. If I come across it again I'll be sure to post it here. In the meantime, a topic like that is perfectly fair game in this community so you'd be welcomed to posted about your experience, your questions, and I am sure there are others here with experience with ADHD who would chime in.
  18. 1) a search query for "on" or "the" (with or without quotes) or "on the" (with quotes) will return all notes. It will, however, highlight the search query in the contents of any notes that contain it.... but since it shows all notes, you'll click on some notes where the query does not exist. It does seem like Evernote is stripping "on" and "the" and similar from filtering notes, but it is still searching for the word or exact phrase (in the case of "on the"). 2) This seems to be isolated, as far as I can reproduce, to cases where many of the words in a query are words like "on" or "the" or "a". Searching for something like "Safe at any scale?" or "Meeting with Myrtle 15 June 2015" will return the note with that phrase in the title. 3) Hard to tell if this is a bug. That being said, I don't know why a search for "on" or "the" or both should return all notes but still continue to search the body of those notes. Evernote should either commit to returning the proper results (Only notes that contain "on" or "the" or both in either title or body), or it should not conduct the search when the query is "on" or "the" or both. To do something awkward in between is confusing and not terribly helpful (in the current implementation I have hundreds of notes returned that do not contain anywhere within them the word(s) "on" or "the" or both.... so I have to click on each note to see if it actually contains those words (which are at least, thankfully, highlighted). Oh, this was on the Mac.
  19. Submitting a support ticket will help them. They may ask for additional information like activity logs to help them track down why this is happening in your specific case.
  20. Really sounds like a case where you may have accidentally made a second account for yourself on June 2. If this is the case, then it is good news for your data.
  21. Evernote are infamously tight-lipped about their development plans, so we can really only speculate. That being said, I speculate that, like business card scanning, which they did announce was coming to android at some point, presentation mode will likely make its way over to Android. Again, this is just a guess.
  22. Sorry this has been such a frustrating experience for you. I've used Evernote for 4 years on 6 devices and have not experienced the issues you have, so this may be an unpleasant case of bad luck. I hope that whatever derive you move to after Evernote works better for you.
  23. If you are on Mac, hold cmd to highlight text as you select it. Or, select your text and press cmd-ctrl-h (handily the same shortcut as highlighting in Preview.app)
  24. Misleading though the funny badge may be, we moderators/evangelists are not EN staff so we have no real insider knowledge. As such I don't have any info to give you regarding this bug! You and I know the same. Sync problems are also complicated and may be related to user error, or a bug in the system, or a combo of both, and as such it would be hard to say clearly exactly what this bug is or if the two of you are experiencing THE SAME bug. It could be two different problems manifesting in the same way. But that's beside the point really. What is important is that you get your syncing sorted. Hopefully support gets back to you when they clock back into work Monday.
