  1. Yes, you can do that. Be sure to save your notes to Evernote BEFORE you erase, then replace Penultimate with version 5.
  2. Augie, You would need to get an older version of Penultimate, for instance by using Time Machine and restoring that version from an old iTunes folder. Once the old app is restored onto your Desktop (or wherever else), erase version 6.0 from your current iTunes folder and import the older version into it. You also need to erase version 6 from your iPad. Be sure to SAVE your Penltuimate files to Evernote BEFORE you do so. Once your files have been saved to Evernote, erase Penultimate 6 from your iPad, then install version 5 from iTunes and launch it. All your files saved to Evernote will reappear into your renewed OLD version of Penultimate. This might take a while; be sure to set the iPad's "sleep mode" to "never" while you do so--the process will take less time.

  4. To reinstall version 5.2.1 or 5.3.1, do the following : - save all your current notes to Evernote; - use Time Machine to scroll back some time prior to July 1st 2014; - find your old Penultimate application within your iTunes folder and restaure it to your current desktop; - erase version 6.0 or 6.0.1 from your iPad AND from iTunes; - import version 5.2.1 or 5.3.1 into iTunes; - install version 5.2.1 or 5.3.1 from iTune onto your iPad; - launch Penultimate (with a brown not a blue icon), log into your Evernote account and let it update your notes (it's a good idea to set you iPad NOT to be put to sleep while doing so); - be sure never to update Penultimate anymore -- untill they set it right back. Voilà. E.G.
  5. Greetings. I've very regularly been using Penultimate for about three years, since approx. 2011. My experience of Penultimate 6.0 and 6.0.1 is catastrophic: loss of data, loss of pages, crashes, overall instability and absolute unreliability. So I've decided to switch back to version 5.2.1 - the last almost reliable version, provided you avoid live updates with Evernote. To do that: - I saved my notes to Evernote; - I uninstalled Penultimate 6.0.1 from my iPad (iOS 8.1.1); - I replaced version 6.0.1 with version 5.2.1 in my iTunes library (I had saved a copy on my Mac); - I reinstalled Penultimate 5.2.1 through iTunes (locally); - I logged into Evernote and got my notes back. Unfortunaletly, version 5 does not allow Penultimate to "communicate" with iTunes anymore, so you can't just move your .pen files from your Mac to your iPad directly -- up to version 4, you could do that, which was extremely useful, especially for archiving purposes. My conclusions are: - the 6.X updates should be avoided at all cost; - Penultimate behaves badly in connection to Evernote and should be an "independant" application. Unfortunately, I think people at Evernote AND Penultimate are not ready to listen to that. E.G.
