    User Manual? Real help functionality?

    Very odd indeed. But once again what I believe to be an axiom of contemporary computing comes into play: If something is messed up, blame it on Google. 😜

    Clip doesn't create a new note

    But I really appreciate that Evernote for Windows lets users customize these keyboard shortcuts/hotkeys. Not only does this let one accommodate Microsoft's imperiousness, it allows me to avoid conflicts with another important program that uses many such shortcuts, and lets us create systems that seem most memorable or rational to us individually. Totally a win!

    windows Context reminder popup is annoying

    Are you saying that you are getting this popup from Evernote? That would be very surprising. If it's coming from some HP app, well.... This is an Evernote forum, and not likely to be able to help with that.

    User Manual? Real help functionality?

    Assuming the Web page in question was the one @TK0047 linked to, there's a search bar right at the top of the page. I pasted in "shortcuts to insert time and date" and got links to a page with all the shortcut info.

    windows Context reminder popup is annoying

    We seem to have a new spammer among us. I suspect it's being automatically generated, and more-or-less-cleverly enough so that some posts aren't obvious marketing links, hoping that the promotional spam might get through. But no! We are too vigilant for that! I have reported the post (and @gazumped reported one in another thread).

    Evernote No Longer My #1 - Sync Issues

    Is it possible that you've accidentally created another account with a different email address and/or password, so that the one you're using is not recognized by Evernote?

    False notifications

    You're not alone. At any rate, what I see seems similar to what you report. If I have a notification/reminder set in Evernote, and then change it, it still pops up at the original time. This is especially true if the change is made close to the notification time. I don't think it's related to Cronofy (which I also use), since the notifications that pop up for me are from Evernote, not the calendar. To me, it seems as if Evernote at some point pushes an upcoming notification into the Android system, which then retains it, even if the notification is reset in Evernote. But I'm totally guessing on that; I have no idea what's really happening technically. I've kind of learned to live with it. The Cronofy-only alternative could be a good workaround. Another option that I've explored lately is not to set an Evernote reminder, but copy the note link and paste it into the description field of a calendar event. I can then set all the reminders I want for that event, and when it pops up I can tap the link to go to the note.

    Can't Open Basic in Windows

    Part of the beauty of Evernote is that, if something goes wrong on your local device, the master copies of notes remain on Evernote's servers. If you have to uninstall and reinstall, the program will just download all your notes again. Of course, to make this beauty work, one must always keep notes synced before closing Evernote.

    Insertion Pointer disappears or moves

    If you search for "cursor" in this forum, you'll find a number of recent threads that discuss this bug. They also report it as new to a recent update, and anywhere from annoying to completely work-disabling. Not sure whether any of those threads offer solutions, other than downgrading to a still-working earlier version until this gets fixed. I've stayed on 6.5 precisely to avoid this kind of nonsense that's been showing up in the recent updates.

    Evernote Android does not start

    Good to know! I read somewhere that the great promise of computers when they were first being developed was that they would do the same thing in the same way every time. Riiight....

    Where's the "Tools" Menu

    Are you using the Evernote for Windows program, or the Web interface (or something else)? The Web interface hasn't got a Tools menu, I presume since most of what is covered there in the Windows (and Mac?) programs wouldn't apply to the Web version.

    Evernote Windows can't be login

    @reeveschan, this is mainly a user-to-user forum, not a direct line to Evernote technical support. Not many of us here (if any) would be able to make sense of the activity log. What exactly is the problem? Are you unable to log in to Evernote through the Windows app? If so, are you sure you're using the same email account and password? Are you able to log in to Evernote through its Web interface (https://www.evernote.com/Login.action)?
  13. The current version of the app does offer adding info to Google contacts after a card has been scanned (though not for previously scanned cards, I think), at least on my Samsung phone running Android 8. What version of Evernote do you have? BTW, these are mainly user-to-user forums; Evernote staff drop in sometimes, but you're not addressing them directly here.

    Evernote Android does not start

    If this is still happening, have you tried completely uninstalling the app and reinstalling it? Has the app never worked on this phone, or is this a recent development?

    New way to scare the bejezus out of people?

    I've responded to this on the other thread.
