  1. I ran into similar issues today. I cut a big chunk of text and formatting, and before I could paste it Evernote crashed, taking with it all the data. Perhaps I could have quickly pasted it into a word document, but I foolishly didn't think of that at the time (and, I'm not certain it was stored in the clipboard cache). But, I thought of this workaround, which might help others with a second device. If you have a second device, go into it and find the old note. If Evernote properly crashed, it should still be there. Rename the title slightly so it comes as a new note. Sync. As an extra precaution, I also emailed myself the note from my second device (a feature I'd never really noticed before). Then, go into your first device and you should have both version of notes - the original (now re-named) and the newer one you were working on. Cut and paste (and cross fingers...) between the notes to get it to how it was meant to be. It was probably a bit easier for me because I've set it so Evernote only syncs when I shut it down, or when I manually tell it to do so. This might not work if Evernote syncs on start-up, in which case it may over-write the note on the second device before you can access the original note.
  2. Excellent. Works for me on version (307671) Public. Thanks Robert! You need to make sure the command prompt is run in elevated status (for Win7: Run > "cmd" > right click > "Run as administrator"), else you might get read/write errors. Works for the background of the note itself, with a few hiccups. E.g. horizontal line, and code blocks have white background. Next on my wish-list would be to get the note list and the note header panel to change background colours. Right now hit with a migraine (the reason I really NEED to abolish white backgrounds) but I'll investigate this more later.
  3. Wow, sorry! I don't know how I missed that. I specifically checked last time I came here to make sure it wasn't an Android thread and still failed somehow. My apologies to all. Gazumped, yes that seems to be what's happening. I don't know the inner workings of Evernote, but I suppose it's HTML (especially if it's the online version). I have tried the copying to Notepad first technique. I didn't notice any "Simply formatting" feature last time I used the desktop version. Is this a new feature for the desktop versions? Looks like this note won't happen until after update.
  4. Except, I don't have any Android devices. :-p This is more an issue with Evernote web, which I use more than any installed version, because I'm jumping between computers the world-over. The portability of Evernote was one thing that drew me to it in the first place. Update to my last post: I couldn't reproduce the (very inefficient) success of me emailing my iPhone the text I want to have with line-breaks. I'm stuck again with notes containing just one huge block of text that won't play nicely at all with any formatting.
  5. I'm getting the same issue on Evernote Web. At least, I think it's the same issue as the OP? If I copy a whole multi-line, multi-paragraph plain text document into Evernote, it seems to treat it as a single block. That is, e.g. I highlight a few of the lines to put them into a bullet list and it makes the entire document one single bullet point, indenting everything. I'm talking here only about copying from another program into Evernote. Manually going through and hitting Enter each line from within Evernote is going to be quite a gruelling ordeal - it isn't an option for me, for at least this note. I've tried: on Windows 7 and 10. Both new and old versions of Evernote Web.Copying from different text editor (Word, Notepad, ...), seemingly regardless of what format (.odt, .doc, .rtf, .txt; UTF-8, ANSI). And the paste without formatting thing (SHIFT+CTRL+V). No good :-( Edit: I actually successfully made a bullet point by copying the text into the body of an email, emailing myself, opening the email on an iphone (didn't work opening on desktop) and then coping it into a note on the Evernote App. Well, still less work than entering line breaks manually each line of this text...
  6. Update from OP: It's working! Big thanks to Candid and the link he provided there. Actually I'm impressed this support forum is so active and... supportive! Thanks all. For those wondering, switching off SSL3 and turning on TLS in "Internet Options" did it. Interestingly, my default browser (Opera) already had SSL3 off and TLS on, despite it being one and half years old with no updates since. Can Opera see the future? Or is it secretly responsible for the SSL3 secruity bug?! </conspiracy_rant>
  7. Bob Brooke: That's something I should have mentioned. I'm doing all this in Win XP, but have been using Service Pack 3 already for a long time. It's been a happy union with Evernote for over a year. The only thing that's changed today (the only thing connected to this not working) on my end was the password change. As you say, it might just be co-incidence, and that the failure stems from something Evernote had scheduled on breaking yesterday, server-side. JMichael: Thanks for the advice. Going through the troubleshoot checklist didn't help, so I submitted a BUG report like you suggested. Support ticket #774367.
  8. Ok I kept searching the internet until it started sending me in loops, so now I have to post afresh. I can't sync anymore after changing my password. I've tried: updating, logging-out, deleting the database, changing the password back to the old password, re-installing. With all my attempts to get a functioning piece of software, the message is always the same - it can't authenticate when trying to sync. It seems my dear Evernote has given up on me. Incidentally, I changed my password only because Evernote told me to, after having their databases hacked. I now wish I hadn't. Any useful suggestions? Addendum: web-login works fine, btw (hence was able to change passwords back and forth).
