  1. Solved my own problem. The answer is here: (although I didn't get error 2732) Here is the Ultimate Fix -Go to 'C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Temp\Evernote.msi' and execute it
  2. Sadly boiler95's method doesn't work for me. If I attempt to uninstall the current version I get an "install server not responding" message. Reinstalling the current version on top of the current installation doesn't help. Do I need to uninstall manually or something? Where is the update thread that Gazumped refers to?
  3. Same here. Been trying to update now for several days.
  4. It's not a feature I personally use for many of the reasons you outline. If I do need to select all the child tags I manually select them by clicking the parent tag and then shift + clicking the last child tag in the list and then changing "all" to "any" in the search details.
  5. In the windows client there is an option "automatically select child tags" which works perfectly.
  6. Great solution to something that has been bugging me for a while. As an alternative to the hyperlink I found I could just drag the shortcut from my desktop into a note - double clicking it then ran the search.
  7. When this first happened to me I thought I was going mad! I can confirm that both the work arounds described above also work for me: Open the note containing the link in a new window and then proceed as normal Right click the link and choose "Open in New Window" or just shift-click. I didn't understand the comment by DTLow that: There doesn't seem to be anything relevant in Help -> Release Notes, but perhaps he meant something different.
  8. I found this thread as I was trying to solve the same problem. I too have concluded that there is no complete solution but I would offer the following suggestions which helped me. The main feature that a bookmark has that an article etc may not have is the URL in the text of the note. A clipped article will only have a URL in the body of the note if there was one there in the original website text. Secondly bookmarks are small. While i cannot find a way of searching by size you can sort in order of size and save this view for the saved search (on Windows anyway). In addition a bookmark will not contain a pdf or a jpeg image (if an image is included it is in png format). So: source:web.clip* -resource:image/jpeg -resource:application/pdf http and then sorting by size will at least help. For me it went from 1094 notes just searching on source:web.clip to 234 of which about 90% were genuine bookmark notes; at the top of the list they all were. Once you've used the saved search you can then add additional search criteria (e.g. tags, text etc) in the search box to find what it is that you are looking for. The best solution is probably to remember to add a tag (e.g "bookmark") when you clip, but for going back over existing notes or as a check that you've remembered to tag, this search might be useful. Edit: My more recent notes seem to have the source web.clip7 instead of web.clip. I have therefore amended the search to include source:web.clip*
  9. This sometimes work - see my suggestion number 2 above. However, in my experience, formatting is not always preserved. Also if the html has links to other files (eg images) you don't get the images in the html document. Using the copying tools within the Windows version of EN, for the files I need to copy, is the most reliable method I've come across so far (see my suggestion 3 above)
  10. I've also struggled with this. I have a script that generates an html file that i want to save to Evernote. In the end I resorted to uploading to a web site and clipping from there. That only works because I have a website I can upload to and the contents of the file are not confidential. I've just discovered option 3 below and that seems to work for my file! Here are some other possible workarounds. The problem with most of them as that the formatting is messed up. Some of these may only work on Windows. 1. Copy and paste the contents of the html file into a new note 2. Use the windows upload folder feature. Just place the html file into the folder. This only works if it is a self contained file without links to images etc 3. Use the Evernote windows clipper accessed from the EN icon at the bottom right of the screen. If you highlight the html file you can then copy it directly into EN using the options found by right clicking the icon. In my experience this is most likely to preserve formatting. It can be achieved quite quickly with ctrl-A to copy and win-shift-A to paste directly into EN
  11. I don't remember that being an option in the past - I also hate the very ignorable "Reminders" at the top of the note list. I don't really use reminders at all but put a link to the note that I want to be reminded about as a task in my task manager (Todoist). This fits with my personal philosophy that all tasks are in Todoist and information is in Evernote. Would a shortcut to a saved search help? For example the search text: reminderTime:day will bring up all notes with a reminder set for today or later. You could at least arrange for that to be at the top of your shortcuts in the left hand pane. Other search options are here
  12. If you are not seeing a reminder date on a note in the windows client but there is a reminder date on the same note on your phone that sounds like a problem with the windows data base. You could confirm this by checking the note in the web client. If you press Ctrl and Help in the Windows client you will get a number of troubleshooting options. I would try something like "Fix all notes" and see if that helps. I recently had to use the "Recreate full text search index" because EN was not finding a note I knew was there. Now it works.
  13. Unfortunately I find Jane Does approach a little inconsistent. Sometimes it doesn't copy embedded pictures etc. html is one of the three text based formats (the others are txt and rtf) that Evernote renders as the body of the note if you simply drop the file into Evernote (or use the import folder in the windows desktop version). Unfortunately, again, this doesn't always include embedded content like pictures. The most reliable approach I have found (for stand alone html files with the content embedded) is to copy the html file to Dropbox. View the file on the Dropbox website interface (open in a new tab to avoid all the dropbox clutter) and then to use the EN webclipper from there. Unfortunately the webclipper doesn't work on local files
  14. I know this post is a bit old but I found it while searching with the same problem. There are various potential solutions that I have eventually discovered. Direct import of an html file (via the import folder in windows Evernote) only works for simple files and normally fails to include pictures and also changes the formatting. In my experience this is actually more likely to fail if you embed pictures etc in the file. My best solution is as follows: Save the html file to dropbox. Open the file on the dropbox web interface - you need to open in a new tab in order to see it without any dropbox clutter. You can then use the webclipper. Another solution that works is to cut and paste the file from chrome into gmail and then either use the webclipper from there or even better, if you are a premium user, e-mail into Evernote
  15. While I maintain that shorter notes and tags are the way to go (see my post above) I made a serendipitous discovery today. Alternote is a Chrome plugin which gives additional editing features for Evernote. I use it mainly to make the cells of tables different colours. I discovered today that it has a fairly primitive "collapse child items" feature. It's by no means a complete solution but might be worth playing with.
