  1. On the Mac, with your cursor in the body of a note, do you not see this?: https://www.evernote.com/l/ABm3IDUguGFN-Y_i8AtmlcC3AoiT2FmmNPk It doesn't appear to be possible to make tables on iOS, though you can edit existing tables. (I rarely, if ever, make tables so maybe there's a way to make a new one that is not obvious).
  2. I don't understand, you can still show your notebook list in the lefthand side bar (Right-click on "Notebooks" and select "Show Notebook List" to display your notebooks in the LHS.
  3. Thats pretty normal. It will sync when you close the app, and it will initiate a sync when yours-open the application. Sync also happens rather quickly and sometimes in (more or less) realtime. Realtime in that if you edit a note and leave that note, that note will sync, so that content won't be synced when you close the app since its already updated. Unless you've made a change to a very large attachment, or added a ton of new content, most of the changes you can make on mobile will be quite small. Quite likely there's actually much less syncing to do when you leave the application than you think. Most notes updated in a given "session" will likely have already been uploaded, and any changes made to a note immediately prior to leaving the application will be minor and, on most internet connection, be done in almost no time at all. If you aren't losing data then there's likely nothing wrong.
  4. On what device is this? I've never had an issue with Evernote finishing a sync after I leave the app or sleep the display on my iPhone 6 (and previously on my iPhone 4s).
  5. For those of you who struggle with effectively integrating Evernote's reminders into your broader productivity workflow might want to check out the newly released PowerApp from Todoist. An excerpt from a brief overview at MacStories: I don't use Evernote reminders for day-to-day task management so I haven't really found a need to give this a shot, but I see people frequently lamenting some of the inadequacies of Evernote reminders. Certainly this isn't going to resolve everybody's various issues with Evernote reminders, but man I suspect this could be helpful for some, especially if they happened to use todoist already.
  6. While you have to log into the Evernote application and the Evernote Clipper separately, under normal conditions there should be no need to log into the clipper every time you launch your browser. Your login should persist. If you clear your cookies, or if you have configured Firefox to automatically clear your cookies when you close it, this will likely prevent your login from persisting between launches.
  7. That link to validate your Evernote credentials is likely valid, check the URL to see if it contains evernote.com very early on in the URL. If you aren't sure, don't proceed. That being said, this is a fairly typical way for you to grant applications permission to access your Evernote content, so this is not an unusual thing to be directed to. As far as I know that is a windows only application, assuming you are referring to: http://hosting.edo-soft.com/stickynotes/ I also don't believe that application is being actively developed so while it still works, I'd be cautious of getting to closely attached to it. Without active development, it might stop working unexpectedly.
  8. An alternative would be to create a single archive, and upon archiving, tag the note with whichever notebook it was archived from. so a note in "The Thing" would be tagged with the tag "thething" and moved to an archive. When revisiting your archive, you can just filter your view by tag. So you navigate to your archive notebook and you want to see all the archived stuff tome your "the thing" notebook so you select that tag from the little tag dropdown at the top of the note list. Perhaps you want to see them from "Project X". so you select the "project x" tag from the tag dropdown, etc.
  9. From my experience its the most recently three viewed or edited.... I suspect it's "viewed" but sometimes it hasn't been 100% consistent which makes it hard to tell exactly!
  10. I suppose you can take some comfort in knowing that your actual text isn't being modified at all, so if, for example, you were to export that text to a different format, or copy and paste that text, the "hyperlink" isn't going with it (though iOS might detect the "data" in the new exported document and highlight it again!).
  11. Those three notes are not supposed to be alphabetical anyway, I think it is ordered based on time, with the top-most note of the three being the most recently accessed. If it bothers you you can turn that list off by, from the home screen in Evernote, clicking on the gear next to your name, and navigating to "Customize home screen", and turn off "show details" for the Notes section, or any other section.
  12. This is good advice but just to make very, very clear, this does not in any way encrypt the Evernote note itself. This will just encrypt that specific attached PDF. Any text or non-encrypted attachments other than the encrypted PDF will still be potentially accessible by navigating to the locally stored files on your device's storage. (You can encrypt individual lines of text in notes, but this can be a bit cumbersome to do with every single note). There is no way to encrypt the database that Evernote makes and stores locally on your device in a way that prevents someone logged into your user account from accessing it. (You can prevent other types of intrusion by enabling FileVault, which will prevent your Evernote database from being read, unless the intruder has your strong password in hand).
  13. That main "home" screen has limited space and only shows the three most recent(ly edited??) notes from any notebook. This is really just there to allow you to return quickly to a note you had just recently accessed and I don't think it is intended to be the primary way you access your notes. If you want a complete list of your notes, you can either click on the "Notes" header above the three notes, which takes you to a list of every note in every notebook sorted based on the selection made under the green "options" button at the top of the list (date created, modified, or title (i.e. alphabetical)). You can also browse by notebook and tag by tapping on the "notebook" or "tag" sections on the "home" screen. If these sections aren't present you can enabled them by, from the home screen in Evernote, clicking on the gear next to your name, and navigating to "Customize home screen". This also allows you to enable or disable the display of those three most recently accessed note (or tags in the case of the "Tags" section, and notebooks in the case of the "notebooks" section). I hope this clears things up a bit.
  14. This is iOS's data detectors at work, this is not something built into Evernote. I believe that a developer (e.g., Evernote) can forbid iOS from using data detectors in an application, but I don't think developers can have a toggle for a user. Since the data detectors are likely very helpful for many users (I personally use them regularly!) they've chosen to keep it enabled. It's worth noting that this isn't something embedded in the note contents itself, that is, it's not the same as if you bolded/italicized/changed the colour of/manually hyperlinked text. This is more like an "overlay" imposed by iOS, much like how clicking an address or phone number in a webpage on your iPhone allows you to show a map or call that number. The website doesn't actually contain a link, its the OS detecting something that resembles a phone number/tracking number/address/date and overlaying something actionable onto it. Is there a reason that the "hyperlinked" text (it's not hyperlinked, exactly, but is does appear that way) is intrusive?
  15. You can put your penultimate notes in any notebook you like. However, that will always be reflected in Penultimate. There is no way to have it organized one way in Evernote, and another way in Penultimate. You'll have to pick what scheme works best for you most of the time, and go with that, even if it isn't ideal for other times.
  16. Glad you are taking some steps to resolve you issue, and contacting support was wise, though if you are a free users you may get a slow/no response. As for why you are only seeing partial info on the web, there are many potential causes. Some common and easy to diagnose ones are: 1) two accounts: You have, at some point, accidentally created two evernote accounts and at some point in time switched between them, and this rendering both incomplete. This can be resolved by double-checking the email address associated you've used to log in each time. 2) Sync issue (this is itself a can of worms). Ensure that, in penultimate, you are connected to a reliable network connection and initiate a sync from Penultimate. Wait until you see that syncing has completed before exiting the application. If it doesn't complete, or after completion the contents of your Evernote account are still incomplete, there may be a bigger issue. 3) Possibility that you have simply overlooked some content in the Evernote interface. The web is the golden truth with respect to your Evernote account, so this is the ideal place to check the integrity of your data. However, it isn't the easiest interface to work with. Just make darn sure you've opened every disclosure arrow, checked every notebook, viewed the "all notes" tab that shows every note from all notebooks. Also, do a quick search in Evernote for words that appear in missing penultimate notes, this might bring up something that isn't immediately visibly evident while browsing. Other than that I am unfortunately out of ideas!
  17. You don't need to install Office to get One Note. One Note is available as a standalone application from the Mac App Store.
  18. Have you used your desktop computer to log into www.evernote.com to see if your notes are still there? If they are there, then you have not lost any data.
  19. This can be done using the Evernote application on iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, or your browser. Log into Evernote using the Evernote account you use with Penultimate. Here you will be able to find a notebook containing your penultimate content. You can then move your penultimate content around as you see fit.
  20. Have you tried either logging out, then back into, the evernote application on the iPad 4? If that fails, have you tried uninstalling then re-installing the application on the iPad 4? This has resolved widget issues for me with other apps.
  21. I'm with you. I was able to get my partner on board, but as far as colleagues go, no such luck, but I've since stopped using Evernote for work related tasks anyhow, so its a good thing I never onboarded my colleagues anyway!
  22. It's difficult to know whether a user is part of a team or not. I am not part of a team, but I do share several notebooks, as well as a number of individual notes, with my partner. For this we use Work Chat, since that is how two evernote users share notes and notebooks. However, Evernote has no way of knowing whether my partner and I are part of a "team" or simply just coordinating household affairs. Therefore, Evernote would have no way of knowing whether it should or should not serve me up an ad to "upgrade my team". I also think we should avoid conflating Work Chat and Evernote Premium for Business. These are two different things entirely. Work Chat is something that ALL Evernote users, regardless of their subscription, must use if they want to share with another Evernote user (whether they are part of a "team" or not!). Evernote Premium for Business almost only ever would make sense in the context of an actual "team" or business. Thus, work chat concerns every Evernote user that has a need to share a note or notebook with another Evernote user, whereas Evernote Premium for Business only ever concerns people who are involved in a business (or similar).
  23. Ah, thanks for directing me to that. I've been a bit out of the "release loop". glad they've acknowledged it.
  24. Yikes. Really a poor thing to foist upon those who are paying for the highest individually-priced subscription.
