  1. On Mac you can use Chronosync or Data Backup by ProsoftEng if time machine isn't sufficient. Also for Mac, to do cloud backups of the local database folder, you could use Arq, Backblaze, or something open source like Restic (cross platform).
  2. I was surprised and recently had success removing that ad from the direct version on both my desktop (iMac running 10.11) and laptop (running 10.12), but found I was not able to do so with the app store version.
  3. Is it a bug that there is no option to remove the Upgrade button for Plus users on the current Mac version, 6.11.1?
  4. I think there should be an option for Plus users to remove the "Upgrade to Premium" option from the sidebar on Evernote for Mac. It's tacky and distracting.
  5. I think there should be a faster way to switch among saved searches on the Mac desktop client. As far as I can tell in 6.07, once a saved search has been run the only way to run another takes several steps because users have to hit the X icon first to clear the search. It seems like this could be a more fluid process with fewer steps.
  6. I think you all should drop support for 10.7.5. The updates released after 5.5.x have been crashing for me and other users on this forum, for me at least since the betas for 5.6 and continuing to 6.03. Evernote seems disinterested in putting resources toward a resolution of the problems. I've tried updating to each point release hoping that there would be a fix under the umbrella description of bug fixes that accompanies each new release, but the stability problems remain. Support has been polite but unhelpful. I know that few users have this version of OS X. But for those like me who do, it would be better to be stranded on an old but stable version of the software than to upgrade to a newer version that is utterly unreliable. You should make the call and cut support when your QA team no longer has the resources to do the work of thoroughly testing for stability on older versions of OS X. (Before anyone replies saying why not upgrade to the latest and greatest from Apple, the machine in question is an older Intel Macbook and the latest OS it supports is 10.7.5.)
  7. Work chat is a good idea for Evernote, I think, but the trouble with the current approach is that many people don't like creating new accounts. It would be great to have email invitations to work chats using a short numeric code, like on LogMeIn's join.me service. Also, I think that users should be able to hide buttons for features they don't use, which would further the minimalist aspect of the application for those who want to simplify the screen as much as possible.
  8. Please provide Wikipedia as a context source. It would be a great improvement of the Context feature for Evernote users to have that option.
  9. This has been reported a number of times on the forum by me and by others. See this thread, for example. Hopefully Evernote will put out a fix. The last version I used was 5.6, and it was essentially unusable on 10.7.5 with the exact same behavior you're describing.
  10. Robert, I reported a very similar issue numerous times on the forums (for example, here), and I pursued the matter with support. I sent crash reports, logs, videos of the crash, etc. Multiple times. Nothing ever came of it, and my support ticket has been idle for probably two months. Eventually, I gave up and downgraded to 5.5.2. It would have been a better decision, I think, for Evernote to have dropped 10.7 support altogether. I'm not anxious to try version 6, especially after seeing that the problems I reported in betas of 5.6 remain unresolved.
  11. Actually, I had hoped that Evernote paid the websites for access to that content in order to provide a benefit to users. And I thought that was part of why the subscription fee was going to change. This was probably pretty naive of me, but also why the Techcrunch article came as a surprise. I had not understood why Evernote would not connect with Wikipedia or any number of .gov sites. So why am I leery? First, I had believed the sole goal of the Context feature was to connect users to the best information. That seems less accurate if the determinant is, at least partly, whether the source has paid Evernote money. Second, I don't feel comfortable about providing value to Evernote by contributing to a big pile of data that media companies may pay to have their data matched against. If that's what is happening. I like the ethos of the simpler business model where Evernote only makes money by providing value to users. I understand the viewpoint that Context can just be turned off, and I have nothing against Evernote Business or even the stuff in the Marketplace.
  12. After reading this Techcrunch article I'm doubly leery of the whole Context feature. Obviously I don't expect Evernote to share its business plans or strategy, but it really seems like this could be a budding plan for Evernote to eventually make money with promoted content masquerading as Context, especially in light of the Nikkei article and the fact that all the content providers are corporate and advertising funded and Wikipedia is omitted. I'd rather you guys just sell the pencil holders and premium subscriptions.
  13. The share button above the note text has blue text, just like the reminder icon. It makes me think that I've accidentally shared or made public notes. Maybe I'm alone in this, but I think it's a bit confusing and the text ought to be dark until a note is shared.
  14. I'm sorry you had a bad experience. Were you able to upload the crash log? I wasn't able to find a log that was similar to your forum name. I did find 1 person who crashed on 10/10 using 10.7 so that may have been you. Next time you crash please make sure to include your information so we can find it and look at the issue. The number of crash logs we've received for version 5.6.1 is still very low so I don't think there's a lot of people having issues (at least as of now). Of course there aren't a lot of people using 5.6.1 yet so it might increase. I do know we have more issues on Mac OS 10.7 Lion than the newer versions. I'm sure there are reasons why you haven't upgraded but if you could I would highly recommend it. We don't have very many people using Lion so the reality is the bulk of our testing occurs on the newer OSs. I think I uninstalled right after the crash this time around, but there should be lots of crash logs for the 5.6 betas and 5.6 itself. I would upgrade to a newer version of MacOS, but some of the white Macbooks (including mine, unfortunately) support nothing newer than 10.7.
