  1. I have other far more pressing things that will ruin my day. I just ignore the button and the feature and move on. After all, it doesn't occupy additional computer resources and it doesn't do anything unless you tell it to, so, no impact to the system or my workflow (except for a the pixels devoted to displaying the button in the vexingly non-configurable toolbar). It completely changed the way notes are shared is what it did. Has had a major impact on our business, so in fact it does matter. All of the old ways of sharing notes still exist. You can email notes to anyone (Note>more
  2. If you didn't receive an automated email from Evernote with your support ticket # it means your support ticket as not actually received (or that your spam filter ate the automated email). Check your spam folder for automated messages, and if there are none, re-submit your support ticket.
  3. You can follow my directions and do a complete uninstall (with the help of something like App Cleaner). Then reinstall. Since your uninstallation was complete, including eliminating the local copy of your EN database, you can take your pick whether you'd like to redownload the App Store version or convert to the Direct version. Keep in mind that unless you have any "Local Notebooks", those will be lost if you haven't backed them up to a separate location.
  4. Any data in synchronized notebooks will not be lost. "Local Notebooks" that you have not backed up may be lost. For any synchronized notebooks, Evernote will just pull all the data back down from Evernote's servers. I experienced this issues with Evernote v. 6.0.X and found a complete uninstall (I used App Cleaner to do this) and a reinstall fixed it. No data lost, but I don't use Local notebooks. Just deleting the app and reinstalling the app is not sufficient, you need to also remove all the additional data. App Cleaner seemed to do this with aplomb: http://www.freemacsoft.net/appclean
  5. Looks like on iOS you can just swipe any chat to the left to reveal a delete button.
  6. Yes you are correct. Although I suspect (i haven't tested) that you could restore a database from an older version of the app into a newer version, just as if the user had simply installed an update and the old database needed to be migrated. I think restoring a v. 6 database into a v. 5 app would be problematic, though. Like you, this is the first report I've seen of outright loss of local notebooks on the version 6 update...
  7. You can restore your database from a time machine backup (or any other backup, for that matter) if you have one. Directions (slightly old, but should be generally the same) here: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/21651-i-need-to-totally-restore-from-time-machine-how/?p=110320 Its dismaying that you lost local notebooks during the upgrade. Did you happen to do an uninstall before upgrading, and during the uninstall, fail to export your local notebooks? That's the only time I could see this happening. Otherwise its a pretty serious bug on Evernote's part.
  8. I have never heard of this happening before. As far as I know there is no way for Evernote to automatically move your notes to the trash. But, stranger things have happened. Since it seems like all of your "wanted" notes were deleted at exactly the same time, here's my recommendation: 1) Install the latest version of Evernote if it isn't already installed 2) Go to your Evernote trash. 3) Enter "Top list view" if you aren't already in that view. 4) Add the "Deleted" column if it isn't already there. (right click on any column header and select "deleted". 5) sort by "deleted" to sort by the
  9. There is no need to install any additional software to clip to Evernote in Safari. You only need to install the latest version of Evernote for iOS and then follow the directions here: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/67298-new-clip-web-pages-on-ios-8/
  10. As far as I know it is not possible to create OS X keyboard shortcuts for items that do not appear in the menu bar. If they removed that item from the menu bar and relocated it to the contextual menu, the shortcut would break. Lots of things seem to have shifted in the release of version 6. Might be worth bringing this up in the 6.0.1 or 6.0.2 threads, or submit a support ticket. It might just be a bug or an oversight. I hope.
  11. It turns out you cannot modify the appearance of the recent note list, you can only turn it on or off in Evernote's settings menu.
  12. To be fair, every beta tester likely opened it and tested it, since it was distributed to beta testers several weeks before release. You could even apply to be a beta tester yourself, and they seem to let most people into the beta. Application Here: Omnibus Beta Tester Beg So you can at least be one more person in a position to voice their concerns a tiny bit earlier in the development process. Having beta testers, and actually listening to the responses are two different things. Won't disagree with you there.
  13. Not clear that this is a persistent widespread problem that has been unsolved for a year.... I use Evernote almost continuously 5-7 days a week and haven't seen a crash in months. That being said, you are clearly having problems. Unfortunately as a free user your access to customer support is limited. In the meantime have you done the usual troubleshooting? A complete uninstall (including removing your local database; make sure you back up your local notebooks if if you have any), and a fresh install?

  15. Unfortunately I think the blogpost and email make pretty clear that bringing back version 5 is not on the agenda at all, but that they are committed to "improving" version 6 (ok, so you could argue that making version 6 "work" would entail making it identical to version 5, but that's a fairly specious suggestion). As I see it, the pragmatic way forward is to either look for an alternative (and there are plenty if you aren't committed to having the Evernote integration), or stick with Penultimate and get used to the aesthetic changes while hoping for the best in terms of improvements. Eith
  16. I actually tested this out to respond in another thread on the same issue, and when I tried, you couldn't even do a merge in Evernote, so on the one hand this is good as it prevents people from inadvertently denying penultimate access to that note, but it is bad because it means there is no merge functionality whatsoever.

  18. This is one I dearly miss too! I think part of it is since pages are gone, you'd end up clearing the entire thing! As it stands there is no way for the application to know where to stop clearing since there's no page break. I think once they figure out what to do about pagination (looks like they are working on this for the next update) they might be able to actually make some progress on a "bulk erase".
  19. Ah, I agree with you, in general. However I would argue that what I suggest and what you suggest both constitute an "alignment of the metaphors", but in slightly different ways. I think your suggestion would jive a great deal more with how users have traditionally used Penultimate than what Evernote has done (and what I have suggested).
  20. This doesn't seem to be possible at the moment. I even thought perhaps it could be done in Evernote, by merging the two notes, but the option isn't allowed on penultimate content.
  21. You will have to rebuild your system under the new structure. Definitely a frustration, but at least now the Evernote/Penultimate metaphors are aligned. You can create new notebooks (which correspond exactly with Evernote notebooks now) and move your 27 notes (formerly notebooks themselves) to those new notebooks using Evernote on your computer or mobile device.

A trio of buttons should appear, one of which is a share button (box wit
  22. You don't say which client you are working on, so shooting in the dark. On the Mac client you can just right-click on the "Recent Notes" header and select "Remove from sidebar". Edit: Also, View>Sidebar Options>Recent Notes
  23. Welcome Paul, First, a minor clarification: There is no clipper application/download for iPhone and iPad per se. Aside from the Evernote application, which you obtain from the App Store, there is no additional download required for clipping in iOS. More on this below. For Safari and Chrome on your Mac: You need to navigate to https://evernote.com/webclipper/ in each browser. So navigate to that page in Safari, download the extension, then double-click the extension to install it in Safari. Then navigate to that same website in Chrome and follow the directions. You cannot use the file you d
  24. This has been discussed a great deal on these forums. In addition to what I suggest here, I recommend you do some searching for more detailed discussion. I'd also suggest you post which operating system you are using here so we can make more relevant recommendations. First of all, it is important to remember that all of your Evernote data is synchronized with Evernote's servers (Excepting Local Notebooks which are not synced). This means that in the event of a hard drive crash or computer loss, your data (except that which was stored in Local Notebooks) should easily be recovered simply by
