  1. Yippee! I am a happy camper now. This registry hack works just fine. All of my Local Notebooks are now blue and my Joined Notebooks are red. The Synced ones are plain black as you said, but that's just fine; as long as they are a different color from the local ones I'm content. It actually showed me that I had renamed a couple of my notebooks incorrectly - oops. Thanks so much for pointing me to this simple workaround.
  2. You should note that there is no such thing as a local stack in Evernote. Of course if you're trying t differentiate between a stack that contains only local notebooks and a stack that doesn't, then that may be helpful to your use case. The registry hack that FactMan mentions does work for notebook names (not for stacks, as far as I know), and that may be helpful as well. Yes, I know there are no local stacks but I wanted to be able to tell if there were any local notebooks within the stacks. Thanks for the confirmation that the registry hack works!
  3. Thank you! I'll have a look. I've renamed my notebooks but some of the names are so long that my Local/Synced notations aren't visible without making the side panel temporarily wider; a different color would be preferable if I can get over my deeply ingrained fear of mucking about in the registry. I've never screwed anything up but there's always a first time.
  4. Thank you for the more detailed explanation. Someone tried to explain this further up the thread but I didn't understand. Because you have to hover over each individual notebook to see if it is local or not, this is not as good as having the immediately visible icons next to the notebooks in the list down the left panel, but it is better than having to open each individual notebook to find out if it's local. I think I'm going to rename all of my notebooks and stacks to differentiate local from synced more easily. Tedious, but the current situation isn't acceptable to me. Your tip will make the renaming task faster, though, so thanks again!
  5. I have to disagree ... it's pretty much a disaster for anyone who remembers having the distinguishing icons. I have many notebooks and a significant number are local. When they were created it was very easy to tell they were local but now it's not. Now I am completely unable to look at the Notebooks list and distinguish synced from local at a glance. If there had been no designating icons to begin with I would have devised a special naming system for local notebooks but it's way too late for that now.
  6. Thanks - this could be helpful in the future, though not nearly as simple as it used to be. Once upon a time, the main Notebook list had an icon next to each notebook and the icon for synced notebooks was different from the icon for local notebooks - one was solid green and the other wasn't - why did they remove this simple visual cue?? It drives me crazy that I can't tell at a glance whether a particular notebook is synced or local. I tried to explain this to Evernote Tech support without success. The people here in the forum know what I'm talking about so why is it such a difficult concept for tech support? It's an interface feature that Evernote used to have - it's not as though we're requesting something unheard of or impossible. Aaarrrggghhh.
