  1. I know that this is a very old thread, but it is the most relevant in the forums. Has anyone from Evernote followed up on this bug in the 3 years that it has been an issue? Is anyone aware of a fix that I am not finding when I search? I have this issue on a Lenovo Yoga 900 which recommends 200% scaling. When I am on that laptop I am able to use the hotkeys to screen capture, however, if I connect to one or more external monitors, I have to change the laptop screen to 100% in order to avoid the Evernote screen capture scaling issue. It makes the laptop screen virtually unusable (though the external monitors are fine.) I don't have the same issue on my other laptop without the UHD screen. It looks like the fix would be for Evernote to ensure that its apps are Universal Windows Platform (UWP) applications https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3025083/windows-scaling-issues-for-high-dpi-devices
  2. TL;DR version: I have found an incredible replacement for CardDesk. It's called Milanote. It is in beta and it is spectacular! It has been sad to see CardDesk with all its promise, lose steam. Entirely understandable on Ashley's part as he has a life to live and I imagine, as most of us, bills to pay. CardDesk was a great concept and it is a shame that Evernote did not pick up on it and somehow integrate it or replicate it and introduce the functionaility into the main Evernote program. In my nine years of using Evernote, I have always used secondary tools (LiveMinutes, OneNote, Springpad, Moleskin, dry erase boards, post-its, and kanban, more recently, IQTELL, Trello, GDTNext and Paper) to try and get things done. Being a very visual creator, Evernote has served well as a backdrop or collection tool, but it has never matched the way my mind works. I love Evernote for what it is and I can't imagine ever leaving it behind, but I will always be searching for a more visual and flexible tool. For those of you in the same boat, I strongly recommend that you sign up for the Milanote beta. I have been blown away with this tool! It looks like it will have a free version and a paid version. The paid will be higher priced than Evernote, but if the developers follow through on their roadmap, it may well be worth every penny. My dream is that Evernote and Milanote could somehow coexist/integrate as this would provide two incredible tools with very different interfaces and experiences.
  3. I added a post about LiveMinutes in the GTD dicsussion group at LinkedIn. There are usually some quality discussions and feedback going there so we might get some interesting points of view there. Alex, you may want to chime in over there. Developers of the solutions being discussed can really add to the conversation and it would like boost your user base quite a bit.
  4. Alex, Is there a specific place to provide feedback (google group, forum, FB page, etc.) or shall we provide it here? I am really becoming active with LiveMinute and I already have compiled some notes, questions and future feature requests. Awesome product!
  5. I absolutely love this tool!!! I've used dozens of different collaboration/project management solutions. There are some definite good ones out there, but so far I am finding LiveMinutes to be my favorite. i live in Evernote, so the intense connection between the two is awesome. IQTELL is about the only thing that compares. Thanks for a great product! As I use it more, I will be happy to give you more detailed and relevant feedback. JS
  6. UPDATE: After attempting 17 different "fixes" to no avail, I finally resolved the issue by doing the following for a second time: (If not already set, set folders to allow viewing Hidden items) Windows Key + R, then type %Temp% and hit Enter Go back one level and right-click on the Temp folder Choose Properties>Security Then click on your login and/or Admin name and select Edit Check 'Full Control' and then Apply (if you are unable to apply, you'll need to go through a deeper process of obtaining full control, unfortunately I don't remember off the top of my head, so you'll have to Google it. I'll update this if I remember the steps I took to elevate my level of control.) That should be it. Go back to the Evernote installer and install. (You may get some errors such as not having access to the destination folder. Don't hit anything, just navigate to that folder, right click and take ownership then Retry. I also had an issue with creating the link, but just clicked through that and opened the Evernote app directly from C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote.) That was it. Up and running now. 99.9% certain that this was caused by trying out some alternative "cleaners" this past week. Now I know, stick with Ccleaner! It is the only one I have used with no ill effect. ORIGINAL: Strange, that solution is not an option for me. There is no Evernote installation on my machine (also Windows 8 Pro x64.) I receive the following errors in order: "The system cannot open the device or file specified.""The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing the package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2755.""Installation failed: (.\Bootstrapper.cpp:905) 0x643:Fatal error during installation." I wonder if there is another solution. For some reason I received this response from support rather than the assistance you received. Thanks for reaching out to Evernote support. I apologize for any inconvenience.Because Evernote 5 for Windows is still in Beta, we have no official support for it just yet. Here is a link for the Beta. I hope this one works better for you. Again, this is the Beta and there will not be support until the full version is available. How were you able to come by assistance if I may ask?
