  1. I have been getting this message a lot for perhaps the past 2 months. I have a PLUS account and will want to Duplicate or Share a note I just now saved locally but get that message. I have sync set up for every 15 minutes but I guess that notes are synced when you save them... true? I bring this up because I never had a problem like that before.
  2. With Evernote refusing to support their apps properly perhaps we need to approach their investors with our demands for proper support: >>> Founded by Stepan Pachikov, the Evernote Web service launched into open beta on June 24, 2008[17] and reached 11 million users in July 2011.[18] In October 2010, under former CEO Phil Libin, the company raised a US $20 million funding round led by DoCoMo Capital with participation from Morgenthaler Ventures and Sequoia Capital.[19]Since then, the company raised an additional $50 million in funding led by Sequoia Capital and Morgenthaler Ventures,[20] and another $70 million in funding led by Meritech Capital and CBC Capital.[21] On November 30, 2012, Evernote raised another $85 million in funding led by AGC Equity Partners/m8 Capital and Valiant Capital Partners.[22] On November 9, 2014, Evernote raised an additional $20 million in funding from Nikkei, Inc.[23]<<< >>> Libin stepped down as CEO in July 2015 and was replaced by formerGoogle Glass executive Chris O'Neill.[11] In October 2015, the Evernote Corp. announced that the company is laying off 18% of its workforce and will be closing 3 out of 10 global offices.[26]<<< https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evernote I get the impression that practically all of the incoming revenue that Evernote generates through its fees, etc., is funneled to their investors with very little going to operations and support. To put it bluntly we the users have been scammed with Evernote holding our files in a proprietary format to prevent us from switching to a different note taking platform like Microsoft OneNote. sssteeve P.S. I use Evernote mainly to archive web content in text format and use Instapaper as an intermediary step, sharing the webpage first to IP and then from IP to EN. Perhaps adding OneNote or another program/app to the process might reduce or eliminate the bugs noted here in Evernote.
  3. Any suggestions for dealing with Note Conflicts? I will mess up and forget to close a document on one tablet and then open it in another thus creating a Note Conflict with a link to view original document. Would that be the document saved on Tablet A or Tablet B? I get confused just thinking about it... Is there a help topic on this or any suggestions from the users here? Thanks! Steve
  4. FWIW you might try uninstalling your current version of EN*** and go through the older versions until you find one that has the features you need but without the bugs you mentioned. It seems like every tablet with its specific version of the Android OS has its own quirks. My tablet of choice for creating EN documents from multiple sources is the Samsung Tab 4 7.0 from 2014 mainly because of its expanded clipboard which holds 20 items. I can zip around the internet copying text and URLs, and then paste en masse into EN for editing. The expanded clipboard has mixed support in apps. For example in Chrome it works in the URL/Search bar at the very top of the page but not the other one. Evernote supports it up through version 7.7 or but after that they changed the way they access the Android keyboard. So for the Samsung I use EN version 7.5 beta 2 as that particular version has the Quick Note feature on the notification panel. Good luck! Steve A. *** On my unrooted tablets there is no way to downgrade app versions without uninstalling them first which is a hassle with EN because I have ~550MB of documents which take almost an hour to reload. I seem to remember being able to downgrade apps using Titanium Backup on a rooted tablet several years ago.
  5. I pay for premium services for Evernote but when I share an on-line document the upper left hand portion of the title is obscured with a "Report Spam" button. This button also shows up if I convert the on-line page to a PDF file. Can the button be moved away from the document area or at least the title portion of it? Can it be removed altogether if we are logged onto our account? This might seem like a trivial item but it is important to me. Steve Ahola P.S. I am posting this on the Android forum because that it what I use everyday although I am sure that the issue has to do with the EN servers.
  6. Thanks for the heads up! I thought that 7.17 was the current version and had been running it on a newly acquired ASUS ZenPad S8 Z380M running Nougat. I found some major problems with it that have been corrected in 7.17.1, like the oversized fonts when cutting and pasting within an EN document and having URLs be live links while editing. I was starting to look for an older version that did not have those problems which would have been a waste of time because 7.17.1 is really slick.
  7. I deleted the details to keep my earlier post brief. I prefer to use my circa 2014 Samsung Tab 4 7.0 running KitKat for Evernote compositions... it fits in my hand perfectly and has the Samsung expanded clipboard which holds the 20 most recent clips, great for compiling quotes and links. It works in Evernote up to version 7.9 but in none of the versions after that. So for me version 7.5 beta 2 is the perfect compromise as it has the Quick Notes. Version 7.17 does run great on my 2014 Samsung (kudos to EN for supporting older devices!) but I lose the expanded clipboard feature which has always had inconsistent support (it will work in the Chrome URL/Search bar but not in the lower search bar or at most websites - and is hit or miss with most apps.) So for me it's actually a big plus that it works in the older versions of EN more than a minus that it doesn't work in the newer versions which unfortunately is par for the course. I did read in a different thread here that the Samsung expanded keyboard is supported in the Quick Notes. Thanks Steve
  8. Old topic, new post. As far as I can tell the Quick Note feature was added to Version 7.5 beta 2 (1075020) but dropped in subsequent versions before 7.9.x. This version is available at the Up to Down website if anyone needs or prefers to use an older version of EN that also has the Quick Note feature. Steve A.
  9. For several years now I've been using a Samsung Tab 4 7.0 (SM-T230NU) tablet which has the expanded clipboard described in the initial post here and have found that it does not work in Evernote version 7.9 and higher so I've been sticking to earlier versions like 7.0.3 or 7.2. To do this I do need to turn off automatic updates in the Google Play Store. There are Android apps that track and save all entries to your clipboard but the user interface is not as slick as the Samsung expanded clipboard. The ASUS ZenPad S8 (Z380M) has its own expanded clipboard which does work with the current version of Evernote (7.17) but for some reason there are some clips that don't get saved to the expanded clipboard but can be pasted in normally - I have found no rhyme or reason for that. Steve A. P.S. The expanded clipboard in the Samsung Tab 4 7.0 has 20 slots for storing the most recent clips, 10 of which can be locked and used for boilerplate text or keyboard macros. Most of the newer Samsung tablets I have looked at have an expanded clipboard but the entries cannot be locked. (The current Galaxy Tab S3 9.7 does allows you to lock 10 entries.) P.P.S. A note for the OP: in saving the text of webpages I have found that Instapaper works great at an intermediate step between the webpage and Evernote - I will share the webpage to Instapaper and then select the text I want (in most cases all of it) and then share that with Evernote. There are only certain versions of Instapaper that allow me to do that so I do lock in an older version that does work. BTW I use 3C Toolbox to save APF files from the apps that I install from Google Play, etc., and then sideload as needed to my tablets. (I edit the filename of the APK file to include the version number.) I think I did find older versions of Evernote in the forums here at one time but have not looked recently. (I've been using the UpToDown website.) EDIT: The Memo app that comes pre-installed on my Tab 4 7.0 also supports the Samsung expanded clipboard so I often use it for temporary storage of clips. Each clip is limited to 4096 characters as I recall and the app seems to a version of Google Keep made for Samsung. So one workaround for the OP would be to use Memo or Keep to compile various clips and then copy and paste the whole note into Evernote.
  10. Since starting this topic in 2015 I have been using Instapaper for Android extensively as an intermediary step in archiving news articles and web pages. When sharing a web page to IP most of the hyperlinks are removed and the remaining ones are removed after selecting all of text and sharing it with EN. I am still using a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 for browsing and archiving. It was first released in 2014 and Samsung has only updated it to 4.4.2 KitKat but it works perfectly for most of my needs. I usually run older versions of apps and had been using version 6.x of EN before upgrading to 7.2 which supports offline folders. I mention using older versions of EN as an option if the newer versions do not meet your needs. With an unrooted Android device I am unable to replace a newer version of an app with an older version unless I first uninstall the newer version. With over 500MB of EN data files it takes quite awhile to install an older version but once installed I can quickly update it to newer versions until I find one with the mix of features that I need. I do have several Android tablets so I could try keeping the current version of EN on one of them just to keep up with the current features (and lack thereof) available. My opinion is that many apps are upgraded mainly to improve the performance with newer versions of Android and if an older version of an app works fine with an older OS why bother upgrading? I still run the original version 40 of Chrome from 2014 on my Tab 4 7.0 tablet however for websites that do not work properly with that I also have Chrome Beta installed which I do keep upgraded. FWIW some web pages are so busy with pop-ups, etc., these days that I will open them in Instapaper just to be able to read them As mentioned in my original post Evernote has completely changed the way I use the internet on my Android tablets. Adding Instapaper to the mix has helped a lot and when I don't need the "heavy artillery" of EN I might fire up Samsung Notes (their version of Google Keep) for small tasks like editing a URL or search phrase. (With 500MB of data files EN is no longer quite as sleek as it once was.) sssteeve
  11. I've been using Evernote for Android for several years now and have amassed several thousand notes, many of which I would like to delete. Any suggestions on the easiest ways to accomplish this? Processing one note at a time with EN4Android would take forever. I have a Win 7 PC available although I rarely use it for Evernote. A related question would be whether there is way to archive older notes in Evernote so that they are not actively using resources but would still be available if needed. (This archive could be stored locally or in the cloud.) Thanks Steve P.S. I prefer to use Samsung Tab 4 7.0 tablets introduced in 2014 and running KitKat so resources are limited (1.5GB RAM & 8GB internal SD) so I have been using older versions of the EN app (currently 7.2)
  12. I tested this out more thoroughly and with all of my Android devices the Evernote app will keep the screen on as long as an EN document is open. As for EN overriding the system brightness settings that has not been the case with my Samsung Tab 4 7.0 tablets.
  13. I have several different tablets besides the Samsung and on all of them the screen stays on as long as there is an open document. I did recheck and on my tablets EN does not override the global brightness setting. OT: In converting news articles into text-only EN documents for my archive I have found that Instapaper works great as an intermediate step : I share the webpage into Instapaper, select all of text and then share into EN.
  14. I love Evernote for Android (it has changed the way I compute- and even the way I live!) but I really wish that there was the option for the screen to time out normally, and for it to follow the system brightness setting (which I usually keep low to preserve battery life.) I use EN 6.0.2 on my Samsung Tab 4 7.0 running KitKat and do not lock my screen so there is no need for me to enter a PIN to restore the display (which turned out to be a real PITA when I lost a tablet a few months ago and had to change ALL of my passwords which are automatically saved and entered by Google. Ouch!)
  15. Were these issues ever resolved? Having the options for the screen to time out normally and to use the system brightness setting would be great... I have many Android tablets but I usually use my Samsung Tab 4 7.0 for Evernote because of its expanded clipboard which will store 20 clips, 10 of which can be locked. (This feature doesn't work with many apps but it does work with Evernote.) I usually like to stick with older versions of apps so I am running EN version 6.0.2.
