  1. I tried all sorts of things on several Windows machines. It was very frustrating. The only way I could fix this and make it stick was with an SSD. And an SSD installed in on old machine really does speed it up tremendously. I don't know why Evernote doesn't fix their apps (on Windows, and it's much worse on Android) to correct this. This is a solvable design problem. If they'd stop adding unneeded features and actually focus on fixing major flaws they would have a professional and credible product that didn't require their users go crazy trying to make it work right. It's not hard to install an SSD as long as your laptop is designed to easily replace the disk. I did it on a laptop that required me to totally disassemble it but it was still worth it. You can do it in a couple of hours, it's not hard, and there are plenty of guides on the web to show you how to do it. Your can use Macrium Reflect Free to clone your current HDD so absolutely nothing changes except for the speed. My suggestion is that you give it a try.
  2. Hi guys, I'm assuming you still have control of the account, right? If not you need to contact Evernote support to reclaim your account. This problem is exactly what 2FA (2 factor Authentication) is for. If you have control of the account enable 2FA. Authy works fine, as does 1Password which is what I now use. Any logins from new devices are blocked unless you allow them. I don't know how your passwords were compromised but change them to something secure, say 8 to 12 random characters. After that you should have no problems. Mike
  3. Hi, I have what seems to be the same problem. I copied from MS Word and found that: " becomes rdquo; or ldquo; and ' becomes rsquo;. Also bulleted items and numbered items are not indented properly beyond the first level. Any ideas on fixing this? Thanks, Mike
  4. Does anyone know if exceles had a backup image of his hard drive when the note was intact how would he use that to recover the note?
  5. Hi, Back in April (I think) the spell checker on the Windows application started flagging every contraction (you know, words that no one in real life uses like "can't") as misspelled. I reported it as a bug but 8 months later the problem is unchanged. Am I the only one seeing this problem or does everyone see it? I can't figure out why they can't fix a bug that they introduced in an update. Previously contractions worked fine. Mike
  6. I fixed this by getting an SSD and putting Windows, the ProgramData folder, and AppData folder (which includes the Evernote DB) on the SSD. Switching from a 7 year old PC to a new much more powerful one didn't help, but now with the SSD the problem has 95% disappeared. BTW the SSD also made just about everything else run much faster. It's the most cost effective expenditure I've ever made to improve my experience on my desktop. However I still agree with everyone else. We shouldn't have to buy an SSD to get reasonable performance. Evernote should stop focusing on flashy new features and spend some time fixing the myriad bugs and making sure the performance is reasonable. Mike
  7. Hi, I HATE the feature where a thumbnail of an image from the document is displayed in the snipit. I often have long titles that I want to see and when a thumbnail is displayed I loose so much of the title text that I often have to open a note just to see what the title is. It's particularly aggravating when the thumbnail is just the generic PDF icon. I can use other list views but none of them are as good as the snipit view. I'd like to see an option or other way to disable thumbnails in snipits. Mike
  8. Dave, Thanks. I'll see if I can get used to the Top List. It sort of looks like my Thunderbird email client & it's easier to change the sort order. Any ideas on getting rid of the information that shows up to the right of the tags of a note? Mike
  9. Hi, I HATE the feature where a thumbnail of an image from the document is displayed in the list of notes. I often have long titles that I want to see and when a thumbnail is displayed I loose so much of the title text that I often have to open a note just to see what the title is. It's particularly aggravating when the thumbnail is just the generic PDF icon. Is there any way to turn the thumbnails off? Also, I have the same question re the information that shows up to the right of the tags of a note. Sometimes it's an arbitrarily selected URL, sometimes it's a location, and I think I've seen other things there as well. It's never anything I want to see and it takes space that I need to see tags for the note. Can that be disabled? Thanks, Mike
  10. gazumpted, Thanks for the quick response and pointing out the links to Support and the older apk files. I'll submit a support request and if need be I'll revert to an earlier version. Regards, Mike
  11. Hi, I've had a new Pixel phone (running Android 7.1.1) for several weeks and Evernote has been working fine with absolutely no problems. On 12/24/2016 Evernote 7.9.8 installed and immediately Evernote started malfunctioning to the point of uselessness. The problems are: 1) When listing the notes available almost always the screen shows no notes. That also happens if I touch All Notes, Notebooks, Shared, Tags, or several Shortcuts I've tried. 2) In the rare instance I can click on a note to view it I always get a blank screen. When that happens the app is dead, i.e. totally unresponsive, and sometimes after that it crashes. I've submitted several reports. 3) Sometimes sync never ends, sometime it completes successfully. 40 On 12/25/2016 ~9:30 pm it worked briefly, just a few minutes, but then it reverted to the same behavior. Evernote on my PC with my Evernote database is working fine. I've synced my notes across several PCs with no problems. The only problem is on Android. I Rebooted the phone & uninstalled & installed Evernote to no avail. When I reinstalled it took maybe 15 min. to load everything and then all appeared well, but as soon as I viewed a note it displayed as empty and then again Evernote stopped working. My phone is otherwise working perfectly and I have a good WiFi connection to the Net via a fast and reliable FiOS connection. When I log into the web site I can't find any way to contact the Evernote Help Desk or otherwise report a problem. Also I can't find a place to download previous versions when a new release is broken. For $45 a year for a Premium license they must provide something but so far it's eluded me. I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me how to reach Evernote support or direct me to the previous version of the apk that worked fine. In fact I'd appreciate any suggestions because right now for me Evernote is dead in the water on my phone and I really need to get it working again. Thanks, Mike
