  1. After logging into Yinxiang (one factor login), and then logging back into Evernote International (2 factor login), I am always required to again reuse my 2 authentication application. After the first round of 2 factor login for Evernote international, I would hope that this step would be unnecessary as I have already logged in from this device numerous times into the Evernote International account.
  2. I jump between Evernote International and Yinxiang (Evernote for China) periodically (I have an account on each). Irrespective of the service I am using, when logging out, it takes me approximately 3 to 6 minutes for the color wheel to stop spinning and for Evernote to recompose itself back into a login window. During logout times, I am experiencing an Evernote Activity Monitor stat of approximately 180%. Login, however is very fast. Evernote version 5.7.2 (451040 Direct) Model Name: MacBook Pro Model Identifier: MacBookPro11,1 Processor Name: Intel Core i5 Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz Number of Processors: 1 Total Number of Cores: 2 L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB L3 Cache: 3 MB Memory: 16 GB
  3. Hey Gazumped. Yeah, I get that - I appreciate the response and your comments. I certainly would like to get my hands on any useful tools that will help me digitize my current mountain of documents, especially as it relates to ScanSnap and Evernote. I am running: MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013)Mac OS X - Yosemite 10.10Evernote 5.7.2 (Premium Subscription)The specific problem is that, if I go to Evernote > Preferences > ScanSnap, all the choices are grayed out (see link).
  4. Apologies, but this is important to me so I'm re-floating this before it gets "lost"
  5. I own two ScanSnap S1500 scanners. I found the scanner so useful that I purchased two of them (I leave one in China and one in the United States). I use them with my Macbook Pro. I also have a Evernote Premium account and see that Evernote has grayed-out functions that appear specific to ScanSnap. Is there anyway for me to access these grayed-out functions?
  6. OK, I see. I can work with that for now.
  7. Am I missing something? I saw some comments about email function, but I'll just ask the question. Is email forwarding of a note no longer integrated on 5.7.1?
  8. I just did this on 5.7.1 after running into the "version too old" problem. These steps worked for me, no reboot, no nonsense. 1) appzapper 2) remove ~/Library/... directories (see below).
  9. OK, I think I understand a bit better about the mechanics of this. Based on my experimentation, it seems to me that it makes a lot of sense to have two separate applications, a different version of Evernote for China and a different one for International. This approach I believe is very useful as it allows both versions of Chinese and International to be run simultaneously, and removes confusion with regard to which version is logged in. Furthermore, the current iterations of the beta actually use a small amount of memory, so running two simultaneous sessions should be not overly taxing on computers possessing reasonable amounts of RAM (a configuration that I do not believe is possible with a "universal binary"). Below are some of the results of the experimentation that have lead me to the above conclusion. Using UI to Switch Accounts One thing I found a bit confusing is is the current method Evernote uses to tell a person whether they are signing into to their Chinese account or their International account. I find the current way the client is configured to be unintuitive. Specifically, the link that says "For Users of Evernote International" with a very small arrow in front of it. I finally figured out that it meant "press here to log in as an international Account Holder". I get the idea of keeping the interface clean, but the current method I believe leaves room for improvement. Perhaps a more clear way would be to utilise a drop-down that states "Select your Service" with China or International as the two choices. And the drop-down choices should be presented in Chinese and English language as well (side by side). I figure that just about any International Account user that deals seriously with China can benefit from at least a free Chinese account. But many will not have the ability to read Chinese, and will still wish to post information that will be available to Chinese Internet users. Utilising One vs. Two Evernote Binaries Another thing I have noticed is that if the the same binary release number is being called (e.g., beta, the following occurs: There is no way to log into the Chinese service without completely logging out of the International service, even tough I am an Evernote Premium Account Holder. Even if I duplicate a binary and give it a different name, it still starts up in the same account as the currently running instance of the binary. If different binaries are being used (e.g., YinXiang 5.5.2 (402634 Direct) and Beta (450667 Direct)): I can open separate simultaneous instances of the binaries by simply clicking on the respective icons. This kind of capability I find very useful. It allows me to get information from my main Evernote account and build a page in the Chinese Account. Memory utilisation when running both binaries at the same time appears to be minimal. Location and Language I found that, once the client was downloaded, it makes no difference whether the computer language is set to English or Chinese, or whether the region was set to U.S. or China. The account that is selected (Chinese or International) in is simply dependent on the login link below the sign-in entry fields that states "For Users of Evernote International".
  10. Update: This is more convoluted than I first thought. At this point, I am simply looking for guidance on how to configure my computer to run a Chinese Beta of the EN client and a International beta version at the same time on the same Macbook Pro. Is there, in fact, a real Chinese beta version that is available?
  11. I spend a lot of time in China, and therefore have two Evernote accounts, one international and one Chinese. The main reason for the second account is that Evernote International is generally unreliable for sharing Evernote International note links into China. While it is too bad that I cannot switch between the Chinese and International accounts using a single client, I can imagine that different requirements from various governments might make that technically messy. The good news is that I can run the two Mac OS X applications concurrently. There is an issue, however. If I choose to update the Evernote Chinese OS X client to a beta release (or maybe even the next commercial release), the initial restarting of that app has my INTERNATIONAL profile loaded, with all of it's notes. It seems that if I log out, I cannot then log back into the international profile, only the Chinese one. One concern is that this type of scenario might create some sort of inadvertent security or legal issue (e.g., International profile and notes into Chinese Client; Chinese profile and notes into International Client). At a minimum, the upgrade mechanism appears not to be working correctly for either the Chinese version, International version, or both when the two versions are coexisting on the same computer. I don't mind running the two separate applications, but it will be a house keeping nightmare if every time one of the clients is upgraded, that I need to once again sort out the profile mess.
  12. I am very pleased to see that Evernote has allowed us to remove the Evernote advertisement when we are sending an email out from evernote. Much more professional. But at the same time, you changed your method of email delivery to include no-reply@evernote.com. I realize that we can CC ourselves on the note, etc., but it still is confusing to the receiver of the message. A small list of donotreply email origination services are provided here: donotreply@connectedcommunity.orglinkedin@e.linkedin.comdonotreply@odesk.comdonotreply@unitedhealthone.comdonotreply@orbitz.comdonotreply@e.linkedin.comdonotreply@overdrive.comdonotreply@mobage.comdonotreply@goldenrule.comdonotreply@apple.comdonotreply@wordpress.comdonotreply@usps.com And here’s more DONOTREPLY input… http://do-not-reply.tumblr.com/http://blog.cakemail.com/noreply/ http://www.clickz.com/clickz/column/2255586/is-your-do-not-reply-email-address-sending-the-right-message (note 800contacts does not do this). http://www.aweber.com/blog/email-marketing/do-not-reply-address-dont-bother.htm These are all large corporations BROADCASTING info to individuals. So if I send email via Evernote, that is the way I am perceived, both by the receiving party, and the receiving party's spam filter as a large BROADCASTING organization. I believe it was not always this way. Just before Evernote made the change to allow removal of the email marketing message, it was changed. Great timing. And it is not something where there is a need for a ton of development time. As it was ALREADY DEVELOPED and implemented by Evernote. In summary, as an Evernote Premiere subscriber, I would like to get this back to the old method of addressing the email originating party (i.e. use my email and not the donotreply method).
  13. Yeah, this is really makes the originator look like a hack. "Evernote helps you remember everything and get organized effortlessly. Download Evernote." Evernote is supposed to be slick, screaming professionalism all the way. But then with my important messages, I have to send people this tagline. Practically embarrassing, with the link even being green. Its been years, so having it go away is probably not a reality, which is silly for a premium subscriber. But why not at least adopt the industry trends of sleek and minimalistic. My suggestion is that they replace the current "Gee, we can help you remember all your wonderful things, and make you really really super organized and super duper smart.... so please download our app right away" link with something more like a simple "Powered by Evernote" They can even leave it in green. Evernote has built a great brand and service. If I saw something coming through the email with that simple link, I think I would get it (as most people would), that there is something special going on with regard to how this email was originated. And I would go and find out more. With that said, there still should be an option out. EDIT: It's even worse than I thought. Originating email sender is shown as "Via Evernote" right there at the top of the email (might have been added by Google Gmail).
  14. Hey GrumpyMonkey - Very, very nice. The video could not have laid out the solution more clearly. It is too bad that: 1) this info is not under help (best as I can tell) 2) the web client interface does not operate the same way as the the OSX client, and 3) the web client seems to be set up in a more intuitive fashion. I am actually a premium user and a big fan of Evernote. This issue just got me a bit tangled up. Anyway, many thanks for turning around a reply so quickly and solving the issue for me. Hi. Welcome to the forums. If I understand your question correctly, the process is pretty straightforward. I have a video here. http://www.christopher-mayo.com/?p=488
