  1. The search I want to do is: someterm AND (tag:A OR tag:B) As in, "I want all the notes with tag 'A' or 'B', which contain the term "someterm". So I looked through this page: https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php And it looked like "any:" was going to do it. I tried: any: tag:A tag:B And that brought back notes that had either of those tags, great! But whether "someterm" is in the front or back of that, I wasn't getting the results I wanted. Can someone tell me the correct way to perform this search? I was doing this on "Evernote Legacy," so I'm not sure if the search syntax will be different on the new client. Thanks!
  2. I don't know if this is what's happening, but other companies do slow roll outs (Chrome I know of in particular) in order to assess whether or not the update had any previously uncaught issues. Better to catch it when only 5% of your user base updated then after 100% updated.
  3. I used (and paid for) Postachio for about a year. It worked fine. But as you may be experiencing with the support response time, I felt like it was just being minimally maintained by someone with a day job. It was supposed to have a feature where it would show different authors for posts, depending on which Evernote account created the note in a shared notebook. After some troubleshooting with support, I was told a fix would be on the way. Months later my inquiries about the progress were ignored. It never did work for me. What I really liked was knowing my posts were always safe in Evernote, and that I could write/format them as I wanted in Evernote, and just have my blog post look like that. Ultimately though, $5 /month combined with the irritation that their support window shows my messages were being read, but just not replied to, lead me to greener pastures. We moved to GitHub Pages. Unless you're already technically inclined, I wouldn't recommend it. It's 100% different than blogging with Evernote, but I was surprised how quickly my wife picked it up. It's free, hugely customizable, and searching for "github pages blogging" shows there's lots of help to be had. To keep the formatted posts in Evernote I just use the Web clipper on the rendered pages. No editing in Evernote. Good luck
  4. The choppy scrolling on the laptop screen is probably because the resolution is much higher than the external display (even though the external display is larger). So, Evernote/macOS has to work harder to get all the changing details ready for display. Regarding your question about which laptop you should get because of this, I wouldn't choose your hardware hoping it will fix this. It shouldn't be choppy - this is an Evernote issue. I suspect if you looked at the same note in the Evernote web app, that it would scroll much smoother.
  5. I used Postachio for a little over a year, but have recently migrated to another solution. I might be able to help with specific questions.
  6. The Evernote transparency report was last updated for 2018: https://evernote.com/privacy/transparency-report I know these support forums aren't official, but thought I would point that out for anyone interested, or in case there was someone here who knows more about that. I was impressed with the apparent push back Evernote gave regarding data requests (16 criminal requests, but only 5 "responded with data"). It'd be nice to know that Evernote is still only handing over user data when absolutely necessary. Chris
  7. Running macOS 10.13.6 with Evernote 7.14 (App store version). I haven't contacted support as I anticipate the response will be "reinstall," which seems to waste an opportunity for Evernote to avoid this problem with other users. So, I'm hoping this is useful to someone. 😀 Evernote is currently syncing continuously, draining my battery, and using about 7KB up, 5KB down of bandwidth. Looking at my sync log I'm seeing (in part): I've bolded the parts that I think represent the problem. In my 'content' directory (where all my notes are), if I grep for the guid '16C8E5FF-2E42-47C8-AD37-305DC50248EA', I get: $ grep -lri "16C8E5FF-2E42-47C8-AD37-305DC50248EA" . ./A54E6E60-24E3-4549-B88E-54CB1F4EB092/note.xhtml ./ED3FC5D5-9F08-4905-B29E-837469283E6A/note.xhtml ./8F88A765-8012-44AC-BA27-20B734132091/note.xhtml ./88BCA9C6-CA27-4A8D-8853-341AE76A265F/note.xhtml ./59D8D876-A00F-4617-8334-04D84F586484/note.xhtml ./4192EC2F-8A2E-4F4B-AA5F-DBE11E313EF9/note.xhtml ./F6B1EC41-5590-430B-BD5E-CE1661782264/note.xhtml ./0173CAE2-9530-4477-A661-8FA92F5B6B73/note.xhtml ./36365DCE-4F0D-42A1-AFFE-81DF89AF7EAA/note.xhtml ./67E710F6-5EFD-4345-9FEA-0F2A86484057/content-pre-sync.enml ./67E710F6-5EFD-4345-9FEA-0F2A86484057/snippet.txt ./67E710F6-5EFD-4345-9FEA-0F2A86484057/content.enml ./61F2DD0F-BE67-4096-AF83-89300FDEDE76/note.xhtml ./38B613C3-4888-4CCE-A75A-EA85D24AB818/note.xhtml ./6B7DA6DC-DD60-4EA9-88AB-C53A4144E501/note.xhtml ./D296697C-92A7-4B53-9666-B99D1C6EE530/note.xhtml ./75501781-D509-4D15-9621-97C6F9F5C7BA/note.xhtml ./CB53E28A-DF7C-484A-A9E2-D85DE91D7F3E/note.xhtml ./E416F82B-0A9E-440B-997D-9039D8920CFE/note.xhtml In a sampling of these notes, I see images like: <img src="evernotecid://16C8E5FF-2E42-47C8-AD37-305DC50248EA/wwwevernotecom/7460442/ENResource/p12103" id="en-media:image/png:6400d81a6838d6833e54210c8f82809c:none:none" width="586" class="en-media"></img> ... <img src="evernotecid://16C8E5FF-2E42-47C8-AD37-305DC50248EA/wwwevernotecom/7460442/ENResource/p11903" id="en-media:image/png:6ecd8eee3764e270ec6a68d9730dad79:none:none" class="en-media"></img> Other little things that might help: The guid "c9397a0e-602a-44ee-a917-06857663ba60", which the log references repeatedly, doesn't exist as any part of a file name, or as a string in my 'content' directory. These images sharing the "16C8E5FF-2E42-47C8-AD37-305DC50248EA" guid show up fine in Evernote. These images are also showing up in the web interface This syncing problem is much more recent than these notes I've been running Evernote 7.14 since release So here is where my lack of Evernote knowledge leaves me. I'll hang out on the web client for a day or so, then probably just resort to reinstalling. Hope this can help someone!
  8. I suspect that is where things are going - not just in Evernote, but in many apps. I somewhat agree with you, but consider it as a business decision: Electron makes it easy to target multiple platforms and allows the many web developers familiar with HTML/CSS/JavaScript to write desktop apps. As a frequent Linux user, I also appreciate that Electron is making it easier for commercial applications to be published for Linux. Your options for many apps may actually be "Electron or nothing at all." Evernote's present/previous state serves as a good example of what can happen when there's a native client for every platform: inconsistency and slow development. Have you used the new Evernote web beta? It's pretty slick, and I feel I'd be willing to trade some RAM and battery life for rearrangable bullet points. I know it could be done in a native application, but how many years went by where Evernote didn't? Only Evernote knows for sure, but it seems likely to me that the development effort only became worth it when the time spent on such a feature would only be needed once, then could apply to all their platforms.
  9. Running Firefox 68 on Linux, I was kicking around in the previous (current?) version of Evernote web. Clicking my user-icon thing, clicked the "Switch to new Evernote version" (or something worded similar), and it worked! Hopefully this is news to other people, because I didn't know, and I was very eager to see this happen!
  10. The memory drop after killing the tab is only 300M, but, I suspect there's still memory being tied up. I assume 1.2G of memory use in Brave isn't usual for you? I was never able to catch the high memory use, I only knew it had happened after the fact because Linux killed the process.
  11. I found it irritating that the message seems to imply the problem is with Firefox, rather than Evernote choosing not to use widely adopted standards that already exist for web applications. I guess this just echos your #2 point.
  12. Yeah, this is with the beta only. You don't experience this issue with the beta version and Brave? Or is it just with Brave and the current client that it works fine for you? I'm back to "current" which doesn't have any issues (aside from not being as nice to use). I was hoping as the beta client was beta that there might be a chance of helping to find an issue. I guess I'll just check in on it from time to time. I've also noticed that when sitting idle Brave and the beta client will use a solid 5% of my CPU, while the current client will use none. 🤷‍♂️
  13. I've been using the new Evernote beta web client in Brave on Linux lately. I'll leave two windows open throughout the day. At seemingly random times my system will become unresponsive and after 30 seconds or so Brave will be killed and my system starts running normally again. My 'dmesg' output has: [72616.778671] Out of memory: Kill process 47516 (brave) score 318 or sacrifice child [72616.778757] Killed process 47516 (brave) total-vm:784704kB, anon-rss:163084kB, file-rss:0kB, shmem-rss:2840kB [72616.809596] oom_reaper: reaped process 47516 (brave), now anon-rss:0kB, file-rss:0kB, shmem-rss:2720kB I'm reasonably sure this is related to the new Evernote web client, as in the past I've left Brave open for a day or more without issue. I've watched the Brave process closely and the memory use stay fairly constant, so whatever happens must be sudden. Memory use of my system is usually 5GiB/7.8GiB or less. So, putting this out there in case others have experienced this, or if someone can give me tips on how I can track this down better. Thanks!
  14. That looks right. I guess I was hoping for something obviously wrong. I figure either your system is interpreting the application wrong (thinking it's a file type it's not) or a broken Evernote application is persisting despite your reinstallation. Do you have any kind of virus scanner or browser extension that might be reading/modifying your downloads? I notice in an above post of yours that the Evernote application from the downloaded image has the proper icon, whereas before it didn't. What if you tried dragging the Evernote application, from the downloaded dmg, into your downloads folder or somewhere else that wasn't in your Applications folder? Can you run it from there?
  15. In Finder, when you select Evernote and do a "cmd+i", what does this window show?
