  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. If you right/ctrl-click any of the column headers, you can select which columns you want to make visible. See for example, the following screenshot: https://www.evernote.com/l/ABk7YmzOaLlCHaiZ1r01mmN0UxGVXmIa7qo Once that column is visible, you can sort by size. Just a quick note, if you are just interested in the overall size of your entire database (not the size of a specific notebook) you can locate the local database on your Mac, which should be here: ~/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote/accounts/www.evernote.com the large of the two folders is the approximate size of all of your evernote content.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. It is not clear exactly what you are wanting to do, but here are a few thoughts that may or may not be helpful: The upload quota is unrelated to notebook size. Practically speaking users at any subscription tier, including free, can have the same amount of content in Evernote, free users just have to add it more slowly. Any existing content doesn't count against your quota. Notebook size in terms of bytes cannot be easily determined. You can enter list view and add the "size" column, and sort by size, to see what some of your largest notes are in a given notebook and generate a rough approximation (at least you'll know if you're talking 10mb or 500mb for a given notebook!). Are you wanting to calculate notebook size in order to ensure you have sufficient space on your mobile device? Keep in mind that you can select which notebooks are available offline, so you don't have to keep your entire Evernote database local to your mobile device. My strategy is that I have a single, dedicated "offline" notebook. This is a temporary holding spot for documents I need offline access to. Its the only offline notebook and it is always selected as available offline on my mobile devices. This avoids confusion because I never have to keep track of which notebooks are available offline and which ones aren't. there's only one notebook designated for offline access, and its always designated as such. All I have to keep track of is what goes in there and when. When I no longer need offline access I move it back to whichever notebook it should be in permanently (which is almost always something other than the Offline notebook). This requires some forethought, so it might not work in cases where you are offline and spontaneously need access to some arbitrary note somewhere else. This prevents me from having huge amounts of local storage on my mobile device eaten up by notes I don't actually need to access while offline. This may work better for some use cases than others, but I've found it to be the easiest strategy for reliably maintaining offline access to only those notes that need offline access (except when the offline feature is itself unreliable, which isn't a strategy-dependent issue!).
  7. You don't need to install Office to get One Note. One Note is available as a standalone application from the Mac App Store.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. 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).
  13. Ah, thanks for directing me to that. I've been a bit out of the "release loop". glad they've acknowledged it.
  14. Yikes. Really a poor thing to foist upon those who are paying for the highest individually-priced subscription.
  15. Since the change to the paid tiers took place, there seems to be a non-removable sidebar nag to "upgrade your team", even for me, a premium user. When clicked, you are presented with an overlay describing Evernote Premium for Business. This overlay can only be dismissed by pressing the escape key. It cannot be dismissed by clicking outside of the overlay, nor does the overlay itself has an "x" or "close" button. Have other Premium users encountered this sidebar item and overlay? Have you been able to remove it from your sidebar? For EN staff who might come across this: 1) It does not make sense to thrust this advertisement on Premium users. There is no guarantee that a given premium user is part of a team, or is in a position to make such decisions even if they are part of a team. 2) This sidebar item needs to be removable. Why allow premium users to remove Market and Announcements and Ads, but not this? Where's the logic in that. 3) The hard-to-dismiss overlay is frustrating and a bit aggressive. Overall this is a disappointingly forceful move on Evernote's part.
  16. Based on the very limited information you have provided, I can't say I've seen this occur on my Mac. What do you mean when you say "gone". And what does "somewhere" mean? Has the app finished its initial launch sync before or after you "click somewhere"?
  17. Just a quick note: The toolbar is now editable (though you can't add anything beyond what's in the default set, you can remove as much as you'd like).
  18. I think this is just being prudent, and would suggest it even if background sync did work reliably! (Also, just in case there is any confusion, I am not an Evernote employee, and I have no insider knowledge).
  19. It has not been discretely disabled. Background sync, in general (not related to evernote, specifically) does appear to be somewhat flakey. Its particularly flakey on older devices, I found after upgrading to my iPhone 6 that it was working a fair bit more regularly. One thing to remember is that this background updating isn't that frequent. Depending on the application, it could be as infrequent as once per hour. I've sometimes found it hard to detect whether it works or not with Evernote because often times its only a few notes that have been added since I last launched, and usually they are not large, so it can be difficult for me to discern whether they were downloaded at launch, or downloaded prior to launch... Anyway, I don't trust it to flawlessly update my offline notebooks, I always manually verify their contents before I enter into a not-connected area.
  20. Those are definitely two significant shortcomings of the built-in Evernote Camera if you are looking to use it as if it were a traditional camera. Unfortunately I don't think this is how Evernote is expecting it to be used, I think they are expecting it to be used primarily as if it were a scanner, which requires much different controls (and far fewer manual controls!). I suspect your best bet is to use the iOS camera, then import all the images in bulk to Evernote afterwards. Since iOS stores your photos chronologically then it should be fairly easy to maintain order. Not an ideal workaround at all, but workarounds rarely are ideal otherwise they wouldn't be workarounds!
  21. Sure, I think Evernote would be wise to add this as an option for their camera, though with their smart document scanning system they've implemented I'm not sure it would work. Thats technical stuff only Evernote knows though, but one can speculate! A bit of an aside, in zooming the way you do you are "digitally zooming". This is not too different from (in fact, its almost identical to) taking the picture without zoom then cropping it down and sizing it back up. Given this to be the case, you could snap the photos using Evernote's camera without zoom, then crop them down afterwards achieving, essentially, the same effect (and all of the glorious quality loss inherent in either workflow in the absence of optical zoom!).
  22. You can right-click on the notebook in the sidebar: https://www.evernote.com/l/ABns-UIWLyVPfIQ48AdXlMzlxvyJ49FXkJM or in the Notebook screen: https://www.evernote.com/l/ABn_2DbQ0cVK_btHSlduD0Xn5p2FC3MrTIc If the notebook isn't currently shared, the menus look different: Sidebar: https://www.evernote.com/l/ABkdCsBxXSNORqH5TSaGV5XZHQ2FLTC0QG0 and Notebook screen: https://www.evernote.com/l/ABkFDf4YrpRGxa47D_W7dlCi3c1kZwlxx7M So if you don't have the "Modify Sharing" (side bar) or "Manage Notebook permissions", it means that the notebook is not currently shared.
