  1. After a quick search of the forums, as well as a little testing on my end, it appears that the new windows client is not by default downloading the notes database locally, and I haven't noticed a means of forcing it to sync entirely to utilize the windows client offline. Is this feature not available yet? Corollary, is it in the works for a future release?
  2. ThatAdamGuy (and others), You might want to try my workaround which has solved the problem of a slow Windows client for many of us. Instructions to implement the workaround that fixed the slow Windows client can be found here: http://www.evernote.com/l/ALrsBe2IrjdFfbGIOZYVpxRJAOUnjFZD2f4/ Discussion relating to this problem and the workaround can be found in this thread: Cheers.
  3. Juggy, if you get your client to sync again and you find that the client is still slow and freezing up often, you might want to try my workaround which has solved the slow Windows client problem for many of us. Instructions to implement the workaround that fixed the slow Windows client can be found here: http://www.evernote.com/l/ALrsBe2IrjdFfbGIOZYVpxRJAOUnjFZD2f4/ Discussion relating to this problem and the workaround can be found in this thread: Cheers.
  4. I've made a small change to my workaround instructions which explains how to put an icon on the taskbar to easily activate blocking when needed. Here's the link again: http://www.evernote.com/l/ALrsBe2IrjdFfbGIOZYVpxRJAOUnjFZD2f4/ Cheers.
  5. FIXED (by a work around). I'm the OP on this thread, and I had the exact same problem you folks have been mentioning (and videoing), and my problem is completely fixed for now by a workaround. The problem is somehow related to the client using the network in the background. The solution is to create a windows firewall rule blocking evernote.exe while you are using evernote (typing, dropping in graphics, moving notes, whatever). This completely eliminated the freezing for me. Then when you are finished creating or modifying content, you can disable the firewall rule and let the c
  6. For those of you who might be using my Windows Firewall blocking method, I've made one small change to the implementation. Instead of having Task Scheduler disable the Evernote-blocking firewall rule every so often, I have it doing so only on user logon. Then in the Block Evernote batch file, I've changed the code so it enables the firewall rule blocking Evernote's connection to the servers, then waits for 2 hrs, then automatically disables the firewall rule (and thus allows Evernote to sync again, in case I walk away from my computer and forget). Note that the 2 hrs is a totally arbitrary
  7. I am glad to hear that if I cut down my size to around 50% there is hope of eliminating the issue. Unfortunately I can't say when the problem first began, but it seems to me it increased gradually over time.
  8. @gazumped How big a database in size and notes do you have? I'm curious about the criteria under which this problem presents itself. More to the point, I'm wondering how many notes/how much data I'd need to archive and remove from my account to eliminate this behavior. My database is 74k notes across 34GB of data.
  9. FINALLY I have some relief on this issue. After a bunch of experimentation I discovered that the primary source of my freezing is based on the Windows client connecting to Evernote's servers while I'm typing. No combination of checking/unchecking advanced options under the Synchronization section, disabling context, disabling the search update feature, etc. would solve my freezing issue. I already have the client on fairly fast machines (with SSDs) and each machine was displaying the same problem. As a last-ditch effort I disconnected my Internet connection to the computer and found that ess
  10. EDIT: FIXED WITH WORK-AROUND. In the interest of cutting to the chase and helping any google-searchers to find the solution many of us are using, I'm posting that work-around here at the top of the thread. To see my original problem and post, read below. The problem of regular freeze-ups while typing, inserting, or modifying notes via the windows client (which seems to present to users with very large databases) is somehow related to the client using the network in the background. The solution is to create a windows firewall rule blocking evernote.exe while you are using ever
  11. I don't know if this counts as a full workaround, but it has allowed me to search for notes due during a time range on the Windows client (though it has limited utility for saved searches, as seen below). Perhaps others may find it useful. Note that I have not tested this thoroughly, so YMMV. Searches using the "reminderTime:" syntax can include a specific (non-relative) date, and this seems to work on the Windows client. For example, I could search for reminders due today by searching "remindertime:20140522". Apparently this query is designed to return all notes with reminder time occur
