  1. I have it in Win10 Desktop version: (308489) Public (CE Build ce-62.3.7750)
  2. Oh yeah. Lots. Obviously they are not syncing over to Android. The shortcuts are synching EXCEPT for those shortcuts that are searches... so there is obviously an issue with searches. I hope they fix it soon. I'm leaving for Europe on Tuesday and on pretty much all my travels there is always some bug in Evernote that prevents me from using it properly!
  3. gazumped: How do you save a search in Android? none of my saved searches from Windows are in Android, and when I search for something on Android I have no option to save it. All I get are "recent searches". More info: when I do a search, the Hamburger menu has these options: Select notes, Add to homescreen, sort, sync and settings. No "save search"
  4. There you go. It was indeed unchecked. Thanks CalS!
  5. There is an issue with this build that causes it to suddenly disappear randomly but always when there is a search involved, ie it only ever happens after I have typed (or started to type) something in the search bar. Before I hit enter the program just disappears. It happens at least every 2nd day. Perhaps it is to do with the 'search as you type' delay, which was set to the default "50". I've just changed it to 0 to disable the feature and I'll see in the next few days if that fixes the issue. I'll report back.
  6. It probably does under normal circumstances. I had duplicated a note then changed it's date. Come to think of it if Evernote accepts new titles for duplicate notes without a sync one would think it would take all edits including the date. Hmm. I think I'll look at the sorting by title (of a dup without sync) to see what happens.
  7. My mistake. I kept sorting and sorting, but I didn't sync. After a sync it sorts fine.
  8. I've opened a ticket, but thought users might like to know. When sorting by create date (and possibly modified date) it sorts properly by the date but it doesn't take the time into account. In the screenshot you see that of the three dates for June 6, 9pm appears before noon, and then 8 am. ( (308489) Public (CE Build ce-62.3.7750))
  9. but it isn't as far off as you think. If one could exclude a private notebook in a search, then all would be good.
  10. I used to do that but I was afraid of losing the date info on export. And now I use that date trick for all my files and pictures on my desktop as well. Nice and consistent.
  11. I avoid using tags for dates by putting the date in the title, 20190426 along with the rest of the title like "taxes" or "Amsterdam trip". Search is a breeze. I then search for 2012* or 201204* to get all notes from that year or from April of that year. Add a few words or tags to filter and I'm good to go. I think I got that trick from gazumped.
  12. They aren't in color on my updated Windows 10. Some were with my previous version of Evernote (beta 2 I think?) but I just got the latest (downgraded) beta, and there is no colour to be had in Windows. In fact, some (like ➕) aren't rendering at all (display a small narrow box). Here is the green checkmark: ✔ (seems it's not green here either! supposed to be:
  13. @Austin G, any update? Seems to me this hasn't changed yet - still just black and white (or just boxes) in titles and lists.
  14. I returned to the previous version and while the shortcuts now appear, clicking on any of them do not display any of the notes! Also there is an issue with tags beginning with @. When looking at a note that includes @fred that tag is displayed correctly as being one of the note's tags. However, when selecting "tags" in the left menu or when searching for @fred or tag:@fred, I get no results. Using (308380) Prerelease (CE Build ce-62.3.7750)
  15. I needed this functionality just now and I must confess I keep losing confidence in Evernote. I am so invested in this platform, but I'm looking at changing that. This function isn't some crazy-ass thing that is merely inconvenient, where if one really wanted to edit they could just go to their laptops and do the 'real work' in the desktop version. It is that kind of thinking that turns people off Evernote. I wrote a lengthy post a while back when I discovered that Evernote wasn't exactly the best thing to depend on when travelling. Today's example is something that I should be able to do on all platforms. It is a note called Freezer-downstairs. Inventory. Table. Shared note. Easy concept. I have an Android tablet stuck to the freezer. The note has stuff like: 3 1lb pkgs of lean ground beef 16 single-servings butternut squash-apple soup 12 single-servings fresh cooked corn from Levie Farms summer 2018 It is in table format so that we can easily edit the number according to what we are removing or adding to the freezer. Ah, but now we are downstairs adding 5 bags of frozen zucchini and we don't have an entry for that. Well, imagine my surprise when we can't add a row under Vegetables. And what if we were adding 5 different items to the freezer? Are we supposed to remember to add all 5 when we go back upstairs and open Evernote on our desktop just to do that? Yeah, not likely. What is going to happen instead is that the Evernote list is going to go straight to the recycle bin and we are going to find an alternative. And while we are it, why not use this alternative for everything else we do in Evernote... I mean plenty of these alternatives don't cost $80/year (or more for multiple accounts) and some don't change what you can do depending on the platform... and then next thing you know you are seriously investigating getting out of Evernote because at the end of the day you realize that all your content is held hostage in a way because you can only export to html and you might want pdfs or text files and oh shoot, what did I do investing all my stuff in this.... That is the problem with Evernote not being consistent across platforms.
  16. I don't use Evernote without my phone nearby to read the news or even do in Evernote Android what I started on the laptop before it froze!
  17. Not sure if I should mention this here, but since we are on the topic of issues with code... there is no longer any way to indent the code block.
  18. The title of my note should say: Roma 2018 ★★★½ Instead, it displays as (interesting that when I copy/paste the title here it displays correctly as Roma 2018 ★★★½. )
  19. I'll check-out those clipboard format disply programs, thanks. When I do what you did I always get the correct format. The issue arises when I select something on the screen using a clipping program (including the Windows Snipping Tool) and then paste directly. So no image is saved anywhere. It's like Print Screen where the result just goes to the clipboard, and then you paste. That's what is always png. Drag and drop and Copy Paste work the way they are supposed to. Edit - Now I'm wondering where the clipboard gets its format info...
  20. (308094) Public (CE Build ce-58.1.6897) Summary: I have a jpg in the clipboard and when I paste it in Evernote it turns into a png file. Dragging jpgs works fine though. I capture the screen with FastStone, which is set to save as jpg. In fact, it auto-saves in a folder as jpg and it auto sends to clipboard as well. One would think that pasting said clipboard contents into Evernote would paste the same format, but it doesn't. It pastes png files, which are substantially larger (as in increasing a 39 KB file to over 300 KB). If, however, I drag the jpg from my screenshot folder to evernote, it remains a jpg. I come across a thread in which Evernote was changing formats on Macs back in 2015 and it turned out to be a bug, so maybe something crept in recently? If anyone can reproduce before I put in a ticket that would be great.
  21. There is an issue with creating a new note in a shared folder. Evernote interrupts typing in the new note to display the "created by and shared by and last edited by" info. If the user is typing on the one line (i.e., just the one paragraph) when "created by and shared by and last edited by" appears, the user may lose a character or two, depending on how quickly they type. But if they had typed a few words and hit ENTER before "created by and shared by and last edited by" appears, then when it does appear the cursor moves to the top of the note and the typing continues up there. To reproduce: Disable "Set new note focus to title" Create a new note* in a shared folder: type 3-4 words, press <enter> and keep typing. After a short delay, "created by and shared by and last edited by" appears and when it does the cursor moves to the top of the note. *I have not tested with "create new note in new window" enabled.
  22. I have, and it does exclude some notes, but for the life of me I can't figure out why. The results show a whole bunch of titles that include London, so it looks for exact maches in intitles (unless I end the search with an asterix), so I know they are not being filtered according to my search. One would assume, then, that it is looking to the content of notes for Lond and excluding those notes. And there are notes that are being excluded. I just can't find the search term in them. At all! I searched for tag:#London -Londo and one of the notes that gets excluded has no text and only 3 pictures with absolutely no words (signs, etc) in the pictures. When I searched for tag:#London -L, 4 notes got excluded but searching within the note only displays ending "l"s as in the phrase "as well. ". TItles are never excluded when the search contains the partial word searches -Londo or -L I think I'll have to re-create the tests I did earlier today with 5 notes with different content, e.g. 1 with Lon another with Lond etc and see which notes get excluded. It's all getting to be very complicated ?
  23. DTLow is correct. Note1 does not have London in its title or body, but it is tagged with #London. That's the note I want to find. There is only 1 way to find that note when using its London tag as a filter, and that is to search the title: tag:#London -intitle:London (or its variants, e.g., -intitle:Lond*) Without specifying the title, searches look at both note content as well as tags. (Hey, at least it doesn't also search notebook titles!) I'm not averse to the search function including tags in general, indeed, it can be useful especially when you forget the tag's exact formulation, but I'm not sure I like that there is no way around it. Perhaps it is a bug?
