  1. Same problem continues. Screenshots via Web Clipper will not merge with an older note. Tried 5 times. Only retains title but no image. Just upgraded to latest Evernote version before trying the above.
  2. Same problem of slowness at launch on my iPhone 8+. Both the notes take forever to load, and the menu choices in the bottom left will not respond. Makes Evernote unusable in a classroom situation where I'm doing a screen-mirroring presentation on a large screen. Same lagging without screen-mirroring as well. Please fix this!
  3. Well, thanks for that clarification. Your earlier response sounded like an apologetic from Evernote. Thanks for actively responding on this forum with your wealth of knowledge and as one of us hoi polloi. By the way, is there a way to encrypt data WITHIN Evernote--say, just one note? I haven't dabbled on the encryption side of things except what is done automatically on the side of software/internet-based companies.
  4. Yes, I certainly acknowledge that I've been so busy searching for alternatives, that I haven't taken the time to check back with Evernote on this reversed policy. Who'd a thunk it. Secondly, it was a tempest, but it certainly wasn't a teapot. It brought your company to a halt on this matter, and you engaged reverse thrusters. Eleven pages of discussion here and all over the rest of the internet definitely tells me your teapot had an upset. OK, that's water under the bridge; but it's encouraged me to be more vigilant as to the privacy of my data, even on Evernote. Thanks for the encryption and NSA reminders; but honestly, I did watch Snowden. Cheers, JCD
  5. Johnny-come-lately here. I agree with the above user (but would substitute "calmed" for "claimed" of course). I'm a paying customer, and have been a devoted customer for six years. However, due to the new policy stating a lapse in privacy, I've been looking for other note-storage alternatives over the year, and just today came across Zoho Notebook. While researching that very attractive alternative (and just about to jump ship), I just happened to come across the news of Evernote's backtrack to NOT allow employees to read customers' content. OK, I'm staying on. But, Evernote, you just dodged a bullet with another customer. I highly suggest you put this news on a higher priority exposure to your customer base. No telling how many others are out there in the same status as I've been.
  6. I also register my dislike to the new list format for notebooks. The previous format was much more user-friendly, enabling me to see my groups at a glance. Now, this multiple scrolling to get to my notebook is time-consuming and cumbersome. I vote for the previous boxes/grid view. At the least give us the option of choosing one or the other.
  7. Having read dozens of internet postings on this subject, most of us MAC users are well aware of the work-around. Having to re-sort all the notes in the notebook (or fake-editing them to get them to sort chronologically) is a major time-consuming pain, especially if you actively merge notes often. There's the rub. I just was putting in a plug to make the MAC software equal to the efficiency of PC-Windows for this feature. Thanks for your concern for taking the time to reply to this. Cheers.
  8. Log your request and upvote the problem for solving here. I think EN is waiting for the vote to get their attention, albeit there seems to be A LOT more complaints spread throughout the internet on this issue.
  9. 14 months later after the opening request at the top: Please allow MAC to do the same simple merge-order function as PC-Windows! Yes, I've already upvoted. Every work-around is an inefficient pain in the backside, especially for those of us who merge frequently. I tend to think that the upvote count here is a tip of the iceberg. Just Google the problem to see how many complaints are coming from Mac users on this issue.
  10. I didn't realize that note histories were updated every few hours by Evernote. I'm sure that's where I lost my data. It was about the time of my attempted update of Evernote and the problem with the corrupted app file, that I had revised my note several times. It was that note which went to cyber wherever, and could not be retrieved. Am I correct that 100% (hopefully) of our Evernote data automatically resides on our PC or Mac hard drive as well as the Evernote servers? And the backing up we need to do is to a THIRD destination (external hard drive, Dropbox, etc.)?
  11. A problem I noticed with the above advice is that, upon reinstalling the new Evernote application, it does not give you a choice about what to do with the current data base. It automatically starts copying and migrating the data. Thus, there is no chance to check about whether the data has been fully synced or not. Another thing I noticed is that several notes created AFTER the lost data, had been already synced. The lost data had not been synced even though the sync function had been activated. Scary stuff. Thanks for the heads up about not relying on Evernote's servers only, but to keep your own backup of the data base. Noted!
  12. Just a few days before my Evernote update, I had to update my current OSX software as well (OS X El Capitan, 10.11.6 (15G1004). Maybe there's an incompatibility issue between both updated software versions of OSX and Evernote. Thanks for your feedback.
  13. Anyone else have your Evernote application rendered unusable when updating to the newest version (October 2, 2016)? Error message result: It took quite a while to download all existing data (i have about 1,200 notes) and then even longer to migrate notes from an old version to the new. I would suggest not doing the update during a busy work day, or it may seriously impact your productivity. Save it for the weekend! After finally updating/migrating/synching, I got the following additional error: Unfortunately, after following the "To resolve this error..." instructions, I lost critical data which was neither saved on my MAC nor saved on Evernote servers. The critical data was regarding bank account transfers--lost forever--something that should never happen with a personal data base backed up by the Cloud, and supposedly syncs everything as you work with it. Warning: Before updating to the new version, be sure to save all notes in process, and even safer--also back up data on your computer.
