  1. It does, doesn't. It. There should be some "optimize" or "spring cleaning" feature in Evernote so we don't have to do it manually.
  2. Sure, no problem. Let us know if it solves the problem. For me it did. Hope its' the same problem/same solution scenario.
  3. I had the same issue. 5000 notes and many notebooks. Every time I wanted to create a notebook it would take forever and evernote would not respond. The only thing that helped was closing evernote, deleteing the database file on your local harddrive and just to make sure reinstall Evernote. Than let evernote index and sync everything from server again. That fixed it for me. I think that after a while the indexing service gets screwed up of clogged up, so this is like spring cleaning. Depending on the size of your database and internet connection it might take a while so do it when you don't need to use evernote if you have a lot to sync.
  4. I tried that but seem so far that jbenson2 suggestion of deleting them manually after sorting them by title seems to work the best. Luckily as I record them with web cliper usually there are some images that show up when viewing notes as snipets. So its easier to spot the duplicates based on the thumbnails. Thanks for the suggestion though.
  5. Yeah, it seems most of the duplicates come from the same website. So its easier to find them and delete them.
  6. Thanks. That seems to be the best solution so far. Having some automated feature or warning would be nice, but I guess for now it will have to do. Would you like to see such a feature?
  7. Hi, everyone How can I find and delete duplicate notes? Been using Evernote for a while now, and I'm currently using mainly old school folder structure. Having over 5000 notes. Probably about half of them are from clearly and web clipper, just capture websites. Having folder structure and partly tagged notes helps but still there are some duplicates I am sure. How would I find and delete them. Using Evernote 5.6.4.4632 on Windows 8.1 64x - premium user. Thank you.
  8. I like the new web UI and it's a move in the right direction I think. Old UI was a bit clumsy for web, and the new one also looks much nicer. Two Questions though? Is there a way to get a complete list of all the features that have been changed or are missing in the new web version compared to the previous one? Thank you. I just tried sharing a note and when I check the shared link online it still features the old UI. Since mostly I share to others to view a note, having a cleaner UI would be the way to go, right? When can we except that change or if it's there how can we activate it? Thank you.Oh, and the web UI. It seems it does not scale as well on some of the larger screens, I haven't tested this but it seems that the center column for example stays the same weight no matter what screen size. So for example on the 30'' large screen, that would mean a lot of empty unused white space, right? Will that be addressed?
  9. I don't think that is the reason. It's the policy of Evernote that annoys everyone. There is overwhelming number of evidence here on blog and forum about it. You can look for it yourself. Loyal and eager users, including paying premium ones like myself requesting information about development and all they hear is echo. No response from Evernote. This was true for evernote on Windows vs. MAC and it's features for very long time. It was true for Android vs. iOS as well and other platforms. People are frustrated for that and not that one is harder to make or talks longer than the other. But for a company that is supposed to be cross platform and that compatibility being it's one of main features - they certainly have a strange policy of favoring one platform over the other. Apparently, the CEO Phil Libin is a MAC and iOS user so that a lot of times get more attention. Or how about the well known case when people were complaining about lack of response from Evernote team on many features that were available on one platform but not on the other platform and no response of any kind as to when and where they will be available. And than a prominent bloger wrote about the same things, it picked up press and all of a sudden we see personal response from Phil about their plans and how they should do a better job. No, the hypocrisy is not related to development difficulty on Chrome vs. Evernote. It's a conscious policy of the company, can but doesn't. I can't remember how long people were asking about Firefox web cliper here on forums and zero response for a very, very long time. It wasn't a response, hey we are having trouble do to difficulty on Firefox platform but we are working on it and we expect to have beta ready by this or that time. No it was zero response. That is the part that frustrates people. P.S. "If development is no fun for the developer, using the end result might also be no fun for the end user." A company the size of Evernote, that can try to sell me hand made wallet and thermo bottle with in app advertisement, but can't make a Firefox extension or find someone to do it, I'm sorry but I find that hard to believe as legitimate reason. That being said, I hope their iron out the bugs and release the same functionality for Firefox as they did for Chrome. Otherwise I don't think I can feel great about their policy. People want to know that the company cares for its users as much as the users care for the company, when we see genuine efforts we can't forget all kinds of faults.
  10. Thanks, I remember trying hat one over the S3, but it had a bug and one of the finished downloads remain forever. I will either try it again or wait for the final release of Web Clipper where I hope the Evernote can fix the compatibility issues. Thanks once again.
  11. After much disabling and re-enabling extensions, I've found the conflict - apparently the Web Clipper and Download Manager (S3) don't like each other. I can live without that, though, and the Web Clipper looks great, though I haven't tried it much yet. Yes you are right, Loramir. That was the problem, good job on finding the source. I don't want to lose the Download Manager (S3), though. I would appropriate the Evernote team resolve that conflict. That being said, and now that I finally got to try it out. It is a bit of a let down. Many of the features, are still missing to make it as the one in Chrome. Especially the smart filing. Otherwise it's pretty much like Clearly.
  12. Thank you. Please post an update here so we know that it's available to test. And please if it's not too much trouble check with Firefox 32 beta, it's already in beta stage. Usually stable and just minor updates but still please check. Thank you.
  13. Common guys it took you ten thousand years of silence about development, and now you asking us to test it but you are still not providing any feedback as to how to use it. Information please.
  14. I am using Firefox 31 RC2 on Win 8 x64 Installed and reinstalled the web cliper and it does show in my addons but I can't use it since I can't get the icon to show anywhere. In my custimaze menu there is nothing about web cliper and nowhere among icnons in the Firefox UI. Please help. What am I doing wrong?
  15. OK, so I was using Evernote premium on Windows 8.1. I used 5 USD per month payment plan and decided to go full year plan after my last payment run out. After the payment I am recognized as a premium user and can access Evernote Web, and use it. But my Desktop version the latest Evernote 5 version, all of a sudden won't open anymore. I can see it running in my system try, but can't open the main window and every time I try I get this message here. No matter what password I enter of click cancel the main window won't open. "In order to synchronize your notes with the evernote service, you must provide your account password. To continue without synchronization please click cancel." P.S. I'm using two way verification method but any password including that one won't work. Please help. Thank you. EDIT: Reinstaling Evernote solved the problem.
  16. Yeah, I can confirm this as well. Trying to cut and paste the image from one note to the next does not work, the image is not saved into clipboard. Please fix the bug.
  17. I would like to see spell check in title notes as well. Please implement that.
  18. Zoom option like in Microsoft Office 2013 please. Or at least CTRL +, - It's long overdue.
  19. I think there is a potential bug, but I'm not sure. I was trying to email an image from Lightroom that was geotaged, so I was expecting that once inside Evernote I could find it on google maps by using the metadata and geo location. I made a tutorial about it actually, and here is the part in the video where I show the way to link Lightroom and Evernote http://youtu.be/rvvBU7J-iXk?t=35m39s ...and a bit later for those in the hurry here is the potential bug in the program. http://youtu.be/rvvBU7J-iXk?t=41m4s Can anyone comment, confirm or disprove this. Possibly fix. Thank you. Krunoslav
  20. Pretty nice work since first beta on Evernote 5 final. Thanks. Question. I like the Atlas feature. But is there a way to manually add point on the map to be attached to the particular note. So when I click on it, it goes to the atlas map. Thanks.
  21. Haven't tested it excessively but glad to see the beta 3 of evernote v5 is going in the direction of improvement. Was very disappointed with the first beta that looked like pre alpha but this is shaping up. Mentioned bugs by other users will get fix to large extend by the time of final release I'm sure. So keep up the good work.
  22. Could you elaborate on what you'd like to see? I would be happy to. (if it doesn't fall on deaf ears again) First I think that the interface as being flat really matches the look we can seen in Microsoft office 2013 applications. I like the modern design direction, but it's not really polished. seems halp baked and like a bad imitation of Microsoft as it is now. I'm a designer myself so... Anyway, the interface bug I posted the screenshot of few posts back. That should have happen if it was tested properly, No other application on windows of thousands that I have seen has that. It's almost like the interface was design to fit another platform and was not tested enough. There is a small size toolbar for buttons but a very long one for search bar, It should be other way around, since it make no sense that you limit the space for buttons, but leave so much space for simple search bar. Tool bar is a place for shortcuts. limiting it's space like this is either do to lack or experience on who ever was the designer of the interface or it is something you have not polished out yet. Either way it limits the user experience and it's an simple design decision. If you are making a flat looking interface than as someone already mentioned there should be at least a small difference in the shading in between UI elements, that is UI design 101. White next to light gray next to darker gray for example. Someone already posted that. Microsoft office 2013 had the same problem when it was in beta stage, after a lot of complaints they have finally fixed that. I hope you will to. There are other UI bugs as pointed out by another user so it definitely needs more work. It is well known that windows users have been ignored for a long time, regarding information about the future release and features. All one has to do is read the forums. So when you release a beta or new version to not include reminders feature again, the most requested feature and every other platform has it already, that is an insult to the windows users. Plain and simple. For a company that has 60 mil + users that should be unacceptable in my humble opinion. Some common features that I would have expected from a seemingly mature application such as evernote is better more intuitive word processing, you could take hints again from Microsoft word. Right mouse click and real time word editing. It's an application for taking notes after all. To not have something so crucial seems very strange to me. Every other little feature could turn into a feature request list and I don't think this is the place for it, but the things I listed above are so crucial in my opinion that I just don't see how any company, especially one so established can ignore them for so long. This is the fifth version of the program, it's not version 1.0. User based has matured enough to make this a serious app.Anyway, I won't do a rant here out of respect for the thread but since you asked those would be my top priorities if I was part of the team. I just hope the silent treatment windows users are getting is not going to continue because it is damaging the company long term. I don't know who is in charge of PR but they are doing a bad job. Users don't need much, but one thing they definitely need, is to know that the evernote team cares about it's users. Without that there is no loyalty. And sooner or later Evernote alternative will show up that is better and treats is users with a bit more care. So I would advise the evernote PR department to take that into account. But I'm only stating the obvious. My point is that after so much delays for win users what Evernote 5 beta offers now it's not enough. And it should be in fact called Evernote 5 alpha. Reminders are not working yet and there are big UI bugs. It's a simple UI, it's not a game or something like that so I think that such bugs cannot be a luxury. That is why I'm hesitant to consider this beta. P.S. And one last thing. The things I wrote, I wrote because they need to be pointed out. I love evernote (v.4) even with it's flaws. It changed the way I run my life, regarding notes and organization. I don't know if I should be greatful for it but I guess I should be so thank you. I would really love to see it as something I can use for the rest of my life. But when I see Evernote so openly ignoring certain segment of users, it breaks my hearth and make me hesitant to committed fully to it. (reason why I did not go premium yet). Somebody is working hard to make the code and servers and all that right and some yahoo in charge of marketing is pissing that away with their policy. I mean YouTube video where comments are disabled, what is that. How is that, hey tell us how we can help you. It's not it's a one way commercial. Anyway, I just hope that internal part of the company can work more towards the common goal - make the app that will make all our lives easier and better. Which I was under the impression was the original intent. I would not mind waiting for six more months to see evernote 5 but to buy that time sense of participation must exist. I'm writing this to express my thoughts. But you are only a person working here. Somehow I doubt this will reach people at the top who can make such decisions. But thank you for the opportunity to at least express it here. Maybe you or some of the readers share some of pain points with me as the user. Thank you. Kruno Thanks for the post! Sorry this is coming as a more delayed response. 1. I really like the new flat look. We'll be going through and adding polish. Overall, we wanted to involve the community early on, so there's some known issues that we're still working through. (And features that are yet to come!) The screenshot you posted earlier is something we're still working through. I don't have the technical expertise to give if a thorough explanation so I won't even try. I do suspect though that it is the cause of many gray hairs... 2. Ah yes the search bar. How do you like the type ahead search and such? Currently that drop down menu lines up next to the snippet & cards, which seems more usable than having the search bar far away in the top right. I do appreciate the feedback, it is something that we will probably keep discussing internally. 3. We'll be tinkering at different things here and there. Again, we're out a bit on the early side. I appreciate that folks are using Skitch to point out things though 4. Again, it's about communicating with folks early and opting for early feedback. Much of what we've done so far is the backdrop for upcoming features and fixes. We're super excited about Reminders, I hope no one here thinks that we're "putting them off" or something like that. 5. Yep, plenty of work to do in general. The note editor is something that always needs more work, and we're hoping to get better coverage on that. I know we have plenty of feature requests there as well. If all goes well we'll... wait sorry can't give a roadmap 6. Instead of repeating yet again about getting early feedback, I'll talk a bit about our team structure. We've got a Windows team that is separate, independent and only works on the Windows client. So I don't think it is curious to hear that you feel as if we have been ignoring the Windows client. We've been working on it non-stop! I'm sorry you have gotten that impression. We have been juggling a V4 and a V5 client for some time, so from the public's point of view we have been a little quiet lately. But yes, we definitely do take into account user feedback and opinions. I hope that I have a good enough track record on the forums to lend me some credibility on that front. (And I'm rather proud of my overall post count, even if I'm no where near Dave Engberg) I don't have any insight to the YouTube comments, but personally, I can see why Anyways, now that V5 is out in the public, I hope your impression will change as we roll out new updates. cheers! "Ah yes the search bar. How do you like the type ahead search and such? Currently that drop down menu lines up next to the snippet & cards, which seems more usable than having the search bar far away in the top right. I do appreciate the feedback, it is something that we will probably keep discussing internally." Search bar is not address bar or like you can find in Firefox or Chrome, both search and address bar. There is less need for adress bar in Evernote becouse unlike a web browser we can see where we are simply by looking at the notebook structure on the left. So the search bar has no purpose being so long. Title bar on the other hand has one important function. To give quick access to the common tool and you also made it customizable. When a user adds more than few buttons they don't fit so they disappear and a user have to click on little arrows to find them. That is the same as diging trough the menus to do the same things, thus defeating the purpose of having a quick access to the tools that should be whole point of toolbar. And off course the search bar is just wasting screen real estate since I don't expect that many people will type a sentence that long in order to find it. But even if they do it should be like any other form or search field. This are all basics of UI design, I hate to speculate how did this happen in the first place but it is certainly something that a professional company should not allow itself to do. I would imaging the goal is to lift standards, not lower them. Other alternative for the serach bar is to make it adjustable in lenght so that the user can fit all their toolbar buttons if they want to. users will appropriate the most two things. "Again, it's about communicating with folks early and opting for early feedback. Much of what we've done so far is the backdrop for upcoming features and fixes. We're super excited about Reminders, I hope no one here thinks that we're "putting them off" or something like that." Not sure it's early enough. Windows users have been asking for any feedback for some time without any answer. How much will the Evernote listen to the users now, remains to be seen. But I thank YOU for listening now. I just hope you can convince the rest of the Evernote team that some of these changes are needed. " We've been working on it non-stop! I'm sorry you have gotten that impression. We have been juggling a V4 and a V5 client for some time, so from the public's point of view we have been a little quiet lately." My point exactly. You have amazingly loyal and numerous users, that is gold in any industry. The fact that you are working hard is something people would understand I am certain of it. But when Evernote is so openly ignoring them and not answering any questions than the feeling they have is same as mine. All the buzz and new features for Apple users and even other platforms but when all the users who use windows ask "Hey, what about us?" Evernote is silent as grave. People will back you up if you need more time or testing or anything, people will even pay for it, but all they want is two things. To FEEL understood and to feel empowered. Win users didn't really feel empowered. "Anyways, now that V5 is out in the public, I hope your impression will change as we roll out new updates." I would really like that, but after previous experiences my expectations are much lower now. Please, I would appreciate a pleasant surprise. Your actual criticisms of the new UI are fine; I've touched on some of them myself during the early alpha releases.This one (the one that's not related to the actual software) is off the mark. First off, Evernote does not, in general, give out information about future releases and features for *any* platform. It's a company policy, and it's no different with regard to the Windows client. How do I know this? Plain and simple: I read the forums, a lot. All platforms have users here who think that their favorite platforms are being ignored by Evernote (or worse, I guess, that Evernote favors other clients more): Mac users, iOS users, Android users. And yes, Windows users. Well guess what? It is not an insult to Windows users. Or to Mac users. Or iOS users. Or Android users. It's just the way that they run their business. If you think that leaving reminders out of the WIndows version is an insult to Windows users, then I guess that you also think that leaving out features from other clients that exist in the Windows version is an insult to the users of those clients? How long did some Mac users pine for vertical list view? How about the mobile platforms? They can only dream about note editing that does as much as the Windows platform does (of course, the Windows users know that that's not perfect). Get a little sense of perspective on this: all of their clients have some strengths relative to the others, and all have their weaknesses. It's not an insult; it's due to the way that their client developer teams are run, independent of the others. Would I like more openness about their future plans? Dunno, I wouldn't mind it, I guess, but then again I base my use of Evernote on what's shipping on the platforms I am using today, not what I wish it will be like tomorrow. ". First off, Evernote does not, in general, give out information about future releases and features for *any* platform. It's a company policy, and it's no different with regard to the Windows client." Well my criticism is with the "Company Policy". You only confirm that. I'm a subscriber to evernote newsletter and evernote youtube channel. For quite a few months I have been getting regular updates. All were for other platforms mainly for Apple platforms. Not one was for windows. Over and over again. Event when they show tips and tricks in Evernote blog, not one was on Windows platform. I too have spend time reading forums and what I found was a lot of questions and no answers, so I guess the "company policy" is in fact what I'm legitimately criticizing. You being the Evangelist for the company are not helping. On the contrary you confirm it. "Would I like more openness about their future plans? Dunno, I wouldn't mind it, I guess, but then again I base my use of Evernote on what's shipping on the platforms I am using today, not what I wish it will be like tomorrow." You are also a user, but so am I. Company trust is often based on transparency. Especially in today's age of social media and fast communication. To be transparent is a competitive advantage unlike in the past. That is old school. I too release software and had to learn to work with clients and customers. The things that I have learned are: Always be transparent and let users feel understood and empowers, in return they will provide evangelism* - small price to pay for such a big gain.Manage expectations well. If you deliver as much as promised, they are satisfied but are not raving fan. If you deliver less the expected they feel disappointment and talk to their friends, that is bad press. But if you promise something and you deliver more than that, you have raving fan. Managing expectations is crucial. It makes or breaks the company.Client, user, customer is always "right". Old school wisdom.*expect when an evangelist is actually confirming the company policy At first I was talking everyone into using Evernote, so in an effect I was Evangelist as well. And if I did not know about the company policy and just use the program I would still recommend it and often I still do. But knowing the "company policy" for which I do not feel is right, when I evangelize I worn people of that because I feel it will cost the company in the long run and I do not officially want to be associated with such treatment of it's users. Evernote is an organization that consists of more than one user. So some employees here are obviously instructed not to provide all the information. Unfortunately you are always likely to find a proverbial bottleneck at the top. What Evernote is doing is nothing new. You can see it in almost every supermarket you go or fast food franchises. People on the top make a policy that is not user/customer oriented. And they put low paying workers with no decision making powers in direct contact with the customer - on the front desk. So when you the customer have a complain you can't get to the people on the top, you are stuck at front desk. And the person on the front desk has been prohibited from helping the customer, so often you hear. "Sorry Sir or madam. It's our company policy not to give that information away. Would you like some french fries with that? " Guess what the customer will do. First they will tell their friends about their pain point and second the will go to their first competitors if there is one. Long story short, it's short term gains traded for long term longevity of the company. And if you study business history you will see that no one is to big to fail and no one is to small to succeed. After all Evernote was once small. Just my 2 cents.

  24. I reverted back to Evernote 4, to be honest I think the beta is actually alpha. The interface bug plus all the other bugs and lack of reminders is not really worth the upgrade for me. I was curious about it and really excited but I'm a bit disappointed after trying. Hope you guys will actually work out the main issues and make it worth the upgrade. Since you have been ignoring windows users for so long I was hoping for more. No upgrade for me yet.
