    Windows Client Slow

    yeah im mainly using the webclient nowadays as that is slowly getting better. I only keep the win app around on one computer for the sole task of merging notes as that for some reason isn't possible in the browser. But i've long given up the idea of working fluidly in the win app, never mention the dated design and UX/UI - which is strange as the webapp feels much more well designed.

    ANSWERED Duplicate Notes Issue

    I see your point, but is it really tho? I mean again, other 'similar' apps out there can handle this flawlessly with loads of people accessing the same notes and editing live. And what makes me actually think that it is 'the same' issue, is the fact that it produces this uncontrolled duplication of notes. I remember back in the day i used to sometimes get a 'new notebook' called Note Conflicts or similar, where some notes for some reason couldn't sync properly with the server. So, one or worst case two orphaned notes where left in there. That was a lot more manageable tho than this spitting out of up to 20-30 duplicated with no annotation from the Evernote system of what is actually going on. Even if there were too many people working on the same note, shouldn't there be a clear Error delivered? and the 1 or two duplicate notes saved with a time stamp and error info?

    ANSWERED Duplicate Notes Issue

    yea @gazumped that seems a little long with 15-20- mins. #1 I've never experienced anything longer than 30 seconds after finishing or deleting a note on my desktop and opening the app on my phone, as i walk out the door, to see the update. I'd say that syncing is, over the last years, pretty much instant or at most 1 min between devices. #2 on the other hand i strongly doubt this has anything to do with the duplicate note issue. The duplicate notes issue is a nasty bug that Evernote needs to fix. With the software development and tech around at this point in time, this should not be something we have to live with using a software from a big company like Evernote. Can you imagine if i had duplicate files with Dropbox, using it on 3 laptops, two desktops and two phones, including sharing with clients?? that would be an absolute disaster! But luckily that never happens. Dropbox and Dropbox paper syncs easily without duplication or any worry for such behavior, even if WiFi was to cut out for a short or long while. Evernote needs to wake up to the fact that this is sub-standard!

    Windows Client Slow

    I've stopped installing and using the win desktop client entirely until I don't see people complaining about it anymore. I'm tired of spending my time wondering what the issue is. I work with software every day. The evernote app is one of the worst pieces of software created for its purpose since a few decades. On another note the web app now seems to have stopped creating dupe notes. (Hurray!) So I only use that. It's nicely designed and works great even in slow countryside (Asia) mobile connections. How did note taking get so difficult??

    Windows Client Slow

    Hi guys OK I have just wiped one of my main 3D workstations (PC win10pro). what should i do? I'm currently using only EN web interface as that's relatively snappy (although I've suddenly noticed some bugs in trying to list all notebooks - they suddenly all disappear as you try to scroll down) I have fresh internal hardrives (several ssd drives) installed, either one able to handle the EN database, but I'm still dubious to whether this app is actually "fit for purpose" Im not interested in having a text based application lag and cause problems when while I'm rendering heavy 3D and using about 30-40GB of ram out of 64GB. I need it snappy and quick and no lagging and not giving me any hassle (as in not waiting for the cursor to move again - even for a few seconds). What should i do to optimize the possibilities of the Evernote app for win NOT #^&%*()-ing up? I have absolutely zero faith in the application as it stands right now, as you might notice, and I'm also not interested in massive run-abouts either. Basically question is - I got a clean system - how do i set it up to run fast, like dropbox paper, google docs or similar? There must be a way to have it running fast without lagging without too much issue? thanks for any advice / David

    Windows Client Slow

    hmm yeah I dont't know. I have one win 10 machine in London with 32 threads and 64gb ram and its the same there. i got one machine with 20 threads and 64gb ram in bangkok and its the same there. I got a chrome book which is web based and used to produce about 200 dupe notes a day (other fantastic issue to rant about) and i got a toshibal laptop with 16 threads and 16gb of ram which is the same issue as above. pretty please dig up the fairy dust and chuck it our way... now!

    Windows Client Slow

    yes I agree completely. I'm using evernote every day and I couldn't get through work or life without it honestly. hence im rather frustrated! about not only this issue. I've tried support - if you think the win app is useless try those guys haha

    Windows Client Slow

    this is good stuff, but ... really ?? i've stopped using the win app since a year back!! i find it utterly unusable and i refuse to jump through poodle-hoops to help it on its way. on the good side the web app is a wee bit better nowadays but seriously i find it ooooouuuuutrageeeeooouuusss that the Evernote win app is so slow (please read "useless") - click on the title... wait. click in the text field... wait. hit enter... wait. its like a school project at the moment. sorry just venting. d

    @jefito just read up on ENScript.exe. Looks very interesting

    Geeknote

    @jefito I agree, point taken. I'm completely aware of how developers of third party apps/utils, are responsible for their own products. My response comment to the 'big company' attitude is out of place here and was referring to more direct issues I've had with Evernote (which should not be discussed here). My initial question was really intended to see if other users here had any experience with GeekNote and if so, if they perhaps knew more about it than I do. I'm curious as to whether Evernote might or might not provide similar features 'out of the box' in the future. As @gazumped suggested - we probably won't know until it happens. I'm still very keen to hear if anyone out there is using GeekNote

    Geeknote

    Thx @gazumped I figured as much. I've sent an email to the devs of geeknote too. Yah the 'big company' attitude is what I like the least about evernote at the moment. It wasn't like that when I joined ...

    Geeknote

    Hi, hope this is the right place to ask this. Is anyone here aware of Geeknote for Evernote? Its a python based app for accessing Evernote through command line. It's currently at v01 i think but haven't been updated for some time. I have written a python plugin for a 3D app I'm using on a daily basis for my work, which collects data from a 3D scene and uploads it as a note to evernote with checkboxes lists etc. This increases efficiency massively in my work as I'm able to very quickly bring myself up to date on files I haven't looked at for a while, but having to go back to for updates on client request etc. I'm wondering if this accessibility is something Evernote is going to continue to support or even possibly provide themselves in the near future? I'd be sad to see this accessibility not being available in the near future for whatever reason. https://github.com/VitaliyRodnenko/geeknote thanks, david

    Windows Client Slow

    thx @gazumped! that sound awesome re beta! yes well I've tried loads of the re-build database options in ctrl+help, but not a full reinstall as I don't really have time to deal with the possible pending disaster. incidentally lovely windows 10 suddenly suggested I downloaded the windows app from the store which I did, which then turned out to be what I already had installed from the Evernote site. So i just left it at that not having the time to look into possible differences and if not then why windows suddenly thought I didn't have the app installed. I admit I have not disabled Context but then again i use that a fair bit so I would't want to find out that the app is much better without using that. Ill enable beta versions and try out what you suggested cheers david ------------------ so i enabled beta versions and downloaded the latest version available, and then enabled the option to "sync on demand" not seeing any change in my database size yet tho. not sure if the feature would actually delete any data - proably more just limit what new data gets added based on "the demand" advice?

    Windows Client Slow

    Also experiencing a very slow Evernote App on Win 10. about 5000 notes in a about 100 notebooks. I run all my applications from a SSD and I have used the optimize and recreate options in the ctrl+Help menu. Still, every time I create a new note there is a slight lag, and as soon as I've typed in my Title there is another lag. I don't notice the same lag in the Web App. I have a very fast computer (20 threads / 64gb ram), as I work in 3D animation and there is no similar lag on any other applications. Evernote doesn't strike me as an application that would need to seems slow like this. thanks David

    ANSWERED Duplicate Notes Issue

    Well just before these last recent posts, that frankly came as a bit if a surprise to me, I was going to post to ask if everyone now agreed that the problem was gone haha Evidently not. However I personally seem to have more luck these days on the same old chromebook that I was complaining about before. I often work on 4g WiFi hotspot from my phone in various countries and the connection is never stable. But I haven't seen a duplicated note in about 2 months. That is with my desktop at home online with win client open and evernote on my android open too, while working on evernote web (new) on my chromebook. This leads me to believe that maybe the issue possibly was solved by an update by chrome... No idea but seems possible. @gazumped fair enough about a secondary word editor, but I find this annoying as for a paying customer this takes away half the functionality of the evernote product. My temporary solution the last week's was to start using Dropbox paper (which is solid) for lengthy writing on notes I had to return to and use evernote mainly for scans and one-time jots. But I'm looking forward to getting back now to evernote for all my writing! Let's see I'm logging in now. I dare u dupe note.
