  1. Many thanks to SottLoughheed and also dbeipi for their very interesting contributions.  Somehow when I know a little more about why an annoying problem exists it makes it a little more bearable. I have to admit that an active number link in an appropriate setting is worthwhile and helpful - but it does not seem unreasonable to expect software designers to realise that not all numbers are telephone numbers.


    Thanks again to those who replied. 

  2. I did eventually take the matter up with EverNote support and got the following reply yesterday (3 Mar 2014):-


    "Unfortunately this feature cannot be disabled due to that [sic] your operating system determines the link detection."


    I do not know enough about Operating Systems etc to know if that is a sensible answer or, if it is, whether the restriction can be readily overcome. 



  3. Hi Wordsgood - thanks for your suggestion.  Don't think it is my phone keyboard set up that is at fault. I tried altering various settings but the issue remains . I have also discovered that numbers included in notes created with the Evernote PC version  will appear as "active" numbers when synced to the Android version.   The problem seems to arise only with numbers containing 9 or more digits.



  4. Every time I enter a numeral in an Evernote note on my Android phone it appears to be treated as a telephone number, though when synced to my PC version it is not. I find this extremely annoying, being in at my grumpy time of life.   I am sure there must be a way to solve this but so far it has alluded me. Can anyone suggest a method please?




  5. Hi - I am having the "lost images" problem but only when I use Evernote  in its web-based version.  When I use Evernote on my Android phone and the PC based version everything is fine, but as soon as I use the web version images disappear and I cannot find anyway to retrieve them.  Fortunately this does not have any serious consequences in my case apart from being very very annoying.


    There does not appear to be any link on the web version of Evernote to copy an Activity Log.


    I use Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 11 64-bit version.


    I do not intend to waste time searching for an explanation or solution - rather I will advise friends and colleagues to avoid or at least be very wary of Evernote which, I am disappointed to say, is not all that it is cracked up to be.
