  1. Followed all these suggestions. Website looks all synced correctly, as well as Evernote for iOS. The sync bug still happens intermittently on macOS. FWIW, I'm also playing with the Catalina Public Beta on an external drive. I see the same issue with Evernote running on the Catalina beta (latest version). There shouldn't be a network connection error, ever, unless my broadband is down. I have broadband and no bandwidth-hogging apps running that would crowd out an Evernote sync process.
  2. Started to see intermittent sync errors with 7.11 beta and it's gotten worse with 7.11 proper. I'm getting a "not connected to network"-type error, even though I have broadband with 300MBps down and 30MBps up. I'm using the 5Ghz band on my router, so there shouldn't be any speed issues. There are no other bandwidth-hogging apps running, i.e. streaming music or video, online backups, etc. The bug is intermittent; I'm baffled. Anyone else having this issue? This is not a problem I've seen before, and I've been using Evernote for years now.
  3. I'm having the doubly-added notes using the Web Clipper since Evernote updated to v. 7.5 beta. I know this is a beta, but such an obvious bug should be quashed before even a beta release. Then again, Evernote has released gold master versions that have been shite. The app is getting goofier with each update. I can't even enumerate all the problems I'm having with god-awful renditions of clipped web pages. A lot of time they're useless.
  4. Issues, we got issues. 1) Scannable is failing to send items to designated notebooks. I have to use my default notebook on the iPhone, sync to Evernote on the iPhone, then sync with the MacOS desktop Evernote app and reassign to the notebook I want the scan to go into on the desktop EN app. Scannable is not respecting my choosing which notebook I want scans to go into, which can vary with each individual scan. This is HUGELY inefficient and a major bug. 2) Latest version of Scannable keeps showing a nag screen to sign up for Evernote after a scan. I’m signed up, and I’m a Premium member. Stop it already! 3) I wish there were a middle ground between full auto capture and manual capture modes in Scannable. I have had to use it Scannable in coffee shops, libraries, etc., and the constant flashes from Scannable before I’m ready to capture the item are clearly distracting to other people as well as drawing attention I don’t particularly want to myself.

  6. Could the Evernote dev team quit taking its cues from Apple, who cannot release software the last few years without introducing more bugs than improvements with each iteration? Web Clipper 6.9.4 for Safari constantly signs me out of Evernote, or forces me to go to a webpage to log in. What if I’m not able to access the web? I tried to downgrade/backgrade to an older version of the Clipper for Safari I have on a backup. Safari (Version 10.0.2 (12602.3.12.0.1) now doesn’t allow such installation; it forces me to use the Extensions Gallery, which only has the latest, malfunctioning version. Just saw that a new version of the Clipper is pending approval for Safari and other browsers, but this is plain old sloppy workmanship. I thought software developers employed knowledgeable professionals and didn’t use their customers as beta testers unless the customers agreed to do so? No one does real world checking for common, obvious bugs in non-beta releases? Much more of this and I stop using Evernote. As a long-time (paying) customer, that should tell the Dev and Sales Teams something. The Web Clipper has always been problematic, yet it’s one of the most useful features of Evernote. I’m very tired of being vexed by sloppy paid software.
  7. I just recently made some local notebooks for the first time. I noticed that I can't clip to these notebooks from the Web Clipper (Safari). The local notebooks don't appear in the choices in the popdown menu of available notebooks at all. Has this always the case and I didn't know, or is it a bug? If it's a feature, I'm not sure I see the rationale for not being able to clip something into my own local, unsychronized notebooks. I thought any notebook I can access (I'm only using Evernote for myself) could be clipped into from the Web Clipper? I can still clip to my default (sychronized) notebook, but then I have to move the clipped item from the default notebook to the local notebook I want it to go into, which is a tedious workaround, though not insurmountable. Can somebody explain this to me?
  8. The Web Clipper extension in Firefox has always, well, sucked compared to its implementation in Safari and Chrome for OS X. And that's putting it nicely. Now it doesn't work at all in Firefox. Though the Web Clipper shows as being installed when I look in the Firefox > Tools > Extensions window, the Web Clipper button doesn't even show up in any of the toolbars. I've done multiple removals and reinstalls.I have read through posts on this issue and I see that the disappearing toolbar button issue has reportedly been fixed with v6.1. Evernote: I'm not seeing any evidence of that fix. In fact, things have gotten worse. I'm using Firefox 43.0.2, Web Clipper version 6.1, Mac OS X (Yosemite) 10.10.5. I generally use Safari, with occasional use of Chrome and even less use of Firefox. It's not a life-or-death issue for me since Firefox isn't my primary browser. I simply don't understand why the EWC for Firefox has always so sub-par when compared with its siblings for the other browsers. Formatting of captured material has always been unevenly poor and options available in the EWC for Safari and Chrome were Missing In Action in the Firefox version. Clearly EWC for Firefox is problematic for a lot of users—both on OS X and Windows—and it looks like Evernote is working on it. Don't know if I should add to the pile-on with another tech support request/bug report.

  10. Glad to hear it. Would still like an explanation why this bug occurs and if there is a security issue involved.
  11. I, too, am baffled by this behavior, especially since it seems to strike only once every few weeks or so. Evernote has not made it clear why anyone clearly not a Chinese citizen would ever have their data punted to a server in China for any reason whatsoever. Why does this behavior happen only sporadically, appearing quite randomly? Why is (presumably) Evernote trying to bounce my data across the planet to servers under a government with irrefutably shady Internet policies? Bad enough Evernote is probably thoroughly open to the NSA, et al. Let's not just give away my personal data to China, please. This odd behavior is the only process that ever exhibits this type of excessive "calling home." (I, too, am a Little Snitch user.) Doesn't matter which browser, time of day, or my location. Though anvtiviral/malware sofftware never flag Evernote, this process reeks of a Trojan. Since the process appear to be open-ended once it starts, I always quit the affected browser. This quashes the process every time. But, still. . . . Given the variability of the Web Clipper feature set across browsers, I have considered moving to a different service altogether. I generally have no other big complaints with Evernote, aside from this suspicious behavior.
  12. I've reported the intermittent problem with Safari before. It hasn't been happening frequently as of late. Can understand the recommendation to disable (possibly) conflicting extensions. Have tried that with no success. Interesting that I have the same extensions installed in Safari, Chrome, Firefox. . .Safari is the only browser in which the Clipper stops operating. I generally uninstall the Web Clipper extension, then restart Safari and reinstall the Web Clipper extension, always downloaded directly from Evernote. The Web Clipper works fine, then. . .until the next time it stops working. I have not found that any particular website triggers the non-function issue. Seems random on my M
  13. If I want to use Web Clipper, I copy the link from Safari to Chrome or Firefox! I don't know why this long-running issue isn't fixed. It has changed my preference from Safari to the other "big two" browsers as my primary choices for websurfing. I think the Web Clipper works overall the smoothest in Chrome.
  14. Having sporadic problems with the Web Clipper as well. Getting an error when I try to install the version you linked to this page. ??? I was having some permissions issues that I thought caused the Clipper misbehavior, but I'm currently on a clean installation with no permissions customization (once burned, twice shy!). Anyone else having this problem? jbignert, your input is welcome.
