  1. Thanks for looking into this @Em Gee - here's some extra info - and new observations... Once the note item is shared into Evernote, via the iOS share sheet, I might be 'minutes' before doing a sync on a Windows machine to do some note edits. In some cases, it's hours. Rarely is the iOS device that I used to create the note (via the Share to Evernote function) is used to open Everenote for reference and even more rarely I open it to do any edits since the Windows laptop is right there beside me as well - or I'm otherwise occupied and know I can just deal with the created note on Windows later. (step 1 to 2). The reversed changes normally show up a day later (step 3). Between steps 2 and 3, the iOS client is generally not used - Evernote not opened - but there could be other notes that were created via the share to evernote function. I might open Evernote on a 3rd ipad though to review notes. My work flow has 2 Windows laptops running, an iphone and 2 ipads.. The iphone and one ipad I generally don't even open Evernote note - just use the camera for photos to send into evernote, or ipad screen shots of a mapping application. iOS version that I'm looking at right now is 8.23.370265. *** Important observation: I opened Evernote on this ipad for the first time in quite some time (to get that version #) - and noticed a bunch of notes I collected on it this morning are tagged for syncing.... BUT they were already synced into Evernote (Windows) - these were screen shot captures from this same ipad earlier today. I dealt with them on Windows - tagged/titled/deleted/etc. Now I open Evernote on ipad and see these notes still here and resyncing. I jump back to Windows Evernote hit sync and ALL these notes are returning! stripped of their prior changes (tags remain). No note history on the ones I've checked. (tried to grab a screen shot, but it didn't save). Jumped to the iphone and followed the same as above - low and behold - another note - this one from yesterday (took a photo on iphone, used share sheet to send to evernote - it synced into windows - was titled, tagged and moved into a different notebook than my default). The sync icon was on the note and I jump back to windows, hit sync and it's returned to my inbox (default) notebook, tag remains, but stripped of it's title. Created date is correct - but time appears wrong (it shows a few hours later than I when I think I created this note). It then shows an updated date of today - but a few hours ago (might have been correct for when I set the title). Here is the iphone screen shot when I opened Evernote. This upload icon is on a note that was generated via camera app yesterday and shared into evernote via sharesheet. Evernote on this iphone was NOT opened after this was done - BUT the note shows in Windows after a sync. It was titled, tagged, and moved to a notebook. After seeing the above, I let it sync - and then jump to Windows... hit sync and the note reappears in the default notebook - stripped of changes except for the tags. See below: Doing all this - it looks to me like we're definitely into an iOS issue - even though the note is getting generated. I'm wondering if I do these 'share sheet' note creations then open Evernote on the iOS device, let it sync - then sync on Windows if this problem would not occur? I'll maybe try that tomorrow - if it does "fix" my problem, that's great - BUT to me this would still represent a significant bug - I should be able to create notes via these 'shortcuts' and not have to worry about data loss occurring a day later. Hopefully all this rambling on helps a bit!
  2. 😬 DATA LOSS continues between ios and windows devices. Maybe this is more of an ios bug or internal Evernote systems bug than Windows bug? Either way... it needs addressed. Following up on my prior post of data loss when syncing between Windows and iOS devices - here's my morning 'report' and example. Luckily I can access note history and recover the note... then I just need to re-assign it's link into my master note table of contents.
  3. Evernote, I love you - but this is really annoying... you really need to fix whatever is happening with cross platform syncing that results in ** DATA LOSS ** 😬. See screen shot. This is just one example. Yesterday, I had 47 notes reappear in my inbox stripped of any changes. Luckily they weren't important and headed for the trash bin anyway. BUT, I do get notes popping back up into the inbox stripped of data that I'd prefer not to have to figure out again. My workout capture below isn't a big deal - it's easy to put the data back - but my work flow in EVERY one of these cases is from a note that originates on iphone or ipad. I think (don't quote me on this), but I think the note is always generated via the 'share sheet' menu on ipad - I know my workout screen shot is a camera shot, then shared into Evernote... and the other notes I mentioned above were screen shots from a different ipad app that I marked up with ipad pen and then shared as a new note into Evernote on that ipad. Then I end up on the windows machine, sync, make changes, re-title, move to notebooks, etc. A day (or so - I haven't noticed a pattern) later, I'll get the note back into my default notebook - stripped of those changes - aside from tags (usually - but I haven't watched enough to see). I think this is strictly limited to image based notes (or screen shots) that - again - were created with a "share sheet task to evernote") - I haven't seen noticed it happen with text based notes directly created on ipad or via one of my siri shortcuts. I've made comment about this problem quite some time ago, but honestly think it's gotten worse since then. Seeing a fix for this would be awesome!
  4. As you can see in the image, there is a selected range of text (under my "reference" heading). 1) selecting a color at the point I have captured the screen you would expect to change the color of the highlighted text. This sort of works as expected - with every color except black. In which case, some lines remain green. 2) just noticed additional behavior - changing the color the highlighted text also changes colors of 'various' lines above (the red colored text was originally dark grey since I can't use black). I'll stick with my dark grey colors to avoid the black problem, but someone might want to look further into this.
  5. Were you on the "web wrapper" beta app perhaps? That's what it sounds like if you had a blue icon at one point. I have over 50,000 notes and that 'web wrapper' application was useless to me although I did try to use it. What you likely ended up downloading now is the native windows desktop application instead (there are beta versions for that as well as the actual release versions). This would also explain your couldn't open "page" error you mention (being on the web wrapper app). Like @jefito says, post what you've got for a version number and someone can clarify.
  6. Sadly, I'm seeing a lot of sync issues between working on ios and windows desktop application. I get notes coming back, titles reverting back to "untitled" and more. Usually the tags stay put, but I can't confirm that as I'm usually just frustrated at the point of having notes re-appear in my inbox after already dealing with them and filing/tagging/titling them. I've seen this across various versions of both Windows and iOS too. Reported in the past too.
  7. No reboot required for me - although I did "prepare" for a reboot just in case.
  8. Seeing this too - although, using links in a secondary window isn't a part of my normal work flow at all so I'd likely have never noticed this. This being said... I just tested the prior version for this quirk and found the results "spotty" - sometimes links would follow in the secondary window, sometimes they'd only open in the main window. I found a some notes that stayed consistent - wonder if it has something to do with the link being generated when one creates a note link?
  9. 1) Seeing a lot of crashes - just closes with no warning/no info. This is largely occurring when I drag an image from Evernote into an Outlook email - doesn't happen every time, but 'frequently' - which is 100% more than the prior version of EN. 2) in the note window, I get the text input mouse icon (upper case "I" with serifs looking pointer - sorry, the name of it eludes me) - This seems normal - except over links - I can still click a link and it goes to the link, but this mouse cursor stood out to me - prior version was the hand and pointed finger icon. In full disclosure, I probably need to reboot this laptop anyway - maybe the problems will go away.
  10. 52,838 notes as of today for me (database is over 20gb)... Everything from PDF's, photos, other images, scans, basic text notes, etc. I have no performance problems on any of my laptops (that a reboot doesn't solve - and usually the performance of the entire computer is an issue - not limited to EN).
  11. Image annotation bug where the image gets 'broken' seems to be back... or at least for me it's happening - unless "Filterize" is causing some confusion and sync issues. Anyone else seeing this? I can right click on it and 'save attachments' (to desktop for example) and the image is properly saved.
  12. 1) quirk: had a quirk where screen clipping (using the old Print Screen mapping) was clipping the screen as expected, but notes were "auto selected" after each screen clip - so each time (in a row), I clipped, I'd have those notes 'piling up' as all selected. Went into options and did a reset for the key mapping and used the new ctrl-alt-s and the problem didn't duplicate. 2) suggestion: "insert template" - I use the template feature some-what regularly -but what would have me use it even more is an "insert template" feature. Example is I can take a photo of something - but need to generate a basic report with that photo - it would be nice to go to the photo note and "insert template" to drop that template into place. As it sits I either generate a new note with the template then copy & paste the photo, then go back and delete the photo note.... or the otherway 'round - go to my template, copy & paste it into the photo note. An "insert template" option would be quite helpful.
  13. DATA LOSS: tags are going missing in shared notebooks when the person updates notes in a shared to notebook. In my screen shots, I am the owner of the notebook that is shared with one other person. In the particular example here, I've added a tag "receipt-scuba" to this note (and several others). User #2 (after we all sync), gets these notes but the tags are missing. User #2 can not add these tags back in, or update notes in this notebook with this tag (red error box as shown in second screen shot). I think I've posted this before about tags being stripped in shared notebooks. - Ahh, yes... quick search in my notebook for tag:evernote-bug-open - I see I reported this in October 2018 - screen shot here.
  14. DATA LOSS: Did someone break something in this release with images and notes? Or perhaps this problem existed prior in at least this one note. None-the-less - a note with a broken image place holder and the original image GONE! Yikes! Image thumbnail in snapshot still shows up though. FWIW, I tried 'save attachments' and the image was there though. Brought it back in and synced again. When I synced - the 'broken image placeholder' was gone and the image I recovered was in it's place. Something isn't quite right. Hopefully a one-off occurrence! Did not check web to verify status there.
  15. Do you have any details about your setup and Evernote usage? I'm just short of 49,000 notes - some just a bit of text, others with PDF's (multiple in some cases), images, a variety of web site clips, and on - really, a fair bit of 'everything' I can throw at it -- I've got no speed problems at all on any of my systems. My full database is about 18gb (one laptop runs 'full sync') Two of the machines I'm on regularly have sync on demand enabled - one ends up at 10gb the other at 2gb.
