  1. Perhaps the system will be refined sometime. There's some underlying bugginess but I can live with it.
  2. Sorry for lack of clarity Jeff. I was using the free Evernote for Desktop v.6.22 at present but I have experienced it with all previous. I am referring to encrypted notes. Both my questions applied to those. The entire note is encrypted, not just a section. When I say "on my other screen" I mean on my other monitor screen (I have two, side by side). My second question refers to the situation where I have a completely encrypted note open on my lefthand monitor and a website page on the other. When the encrypted note disappears it is only the encrypted text that vanishes, leaving the "thing" one clicks to bring up the password but the encrypted text is gone. Then clicking the thing brings it all back (without needing the password), but by then I have often lost focus on where I wanted to paste the text I copied from the webpage. The Evernote text does not always vanish when clicking on the webpage. It is not a major problem but rather a minor intermittent annoyance bug.
  3. If I select some note text and then attempt to change its size from Tahoma 10 to 16 it works only sometimes. If I have a protected note open on one screen then click on a website on my other screen e.g. to select/copy text, the Evernote disappears and I have to click the thing that requires the password again.
  4. Damnation! The disappearance phenomenon happened again once just now but not since with several tries. The Hide or Show lies underneath the box surrounding the text. Clicking to change does nothing other than going from Hide to Change and vice versa. I can live with it but when one is reading from one screen then looking to the other and the Evernote text disappears (PLUS when you do get it back you may have to scroll to where you were at again) it destroys my thought flow.
  5. WHAT THE HECK????? This morning (28/11/2018) I was getting really bugged by this issue so I looked in here for replies. There were none so I started to re-word my question and had Evernote Desktop open on my left screen and this forum on the right. Wouldn't you know it ..... the problem has gone away. The only clue I can think of is that this morning when I had a Note de-crypted and then clicked on a browser page on my right hand screen, the Note text disappeared but about half way down on its right hand side I noticed the word "Show" or "Hide" so I clicked it. All that I think that did was change the word from Show to Hide or vice versa . I cannot see either of those words now. Anyway, this morning, because I had finished, I clicked File then Exit and here I am 6 hours later, with Evernote working just fine, unable to reproduce the problem, thoroughly bewildered, and reporting my experience. Now I'm off to take a Valium and have a lie down 😥
  6. Using W8.2 and evernote v 6.16 desktop version. I have 2 screens. I usually copy and paste from one screen into encrypted Evernotes on the other. Lately, if I click on the non Evernote screen the text in the evernote disappears and I have to click on the encryption icon (top left corner of the note) to get the text back. At least I do not have to re-type the encryption password. I hoped installing the latest version 6.16 would fix.
  7. To get rid of bullet point, use Word processors which usually have a "Find" tool, from which you can "Replace" e.g. with a space, or delete etc. Then copy and past into Evernote.
  8. I cannot see the password box in "Web". I see the thing to click but clicking does 0. I haven't tried encrypting in Web via Google.
  9. Hi, I have encryption working OK for my free Desktop version Windows 8 but have tried it with the WEB version and Google browser on PC and chromebook and the decryption passphrase field is not popping up. I have re- tried after disabling my blockers (Disconnect and Privacy Badger) and chrome browsing data. I do not see any limitation mentioned in the desktop Help.
  10. p.s. in My Account I found a toggle between a new Evernote Web and the old version. I tried the new one and was immediately in more familiar territory where for instance My Account is right up the top. I would still like to see a dedicated [Logout] up in the top right-hand corner though as logging out is good practice for security reasons.
  11. STOP WORRYING ? I just found the solution myself. Thanks very much anyway. In the lower LH corner is (in my case) a "W" which is the icon for my account and Logout is in there. I was looking for an outline of a face. Also, I realise now that the Toolbar or Menu bar is the either the column down the left hand side or the row (not a bar) of icons across the top. As for which web version it is the free one and I assume it must be the the latest as it comes from the Evernote website/server. Where do I look for it? My desktop version is in the usual spot under Help / About and is
  12. Thanks DTLow. That is one standard method, although I have always wondered why an obvious [LOGOUT] does not show up near the top RH corner on ALL sites. Sometimes you need to right-click and select logout, other times click a down arrow and select, other times click a company logo (Netflix) etc etc. What is it about webpage designers that they feel the need to personalise their creations for something as fundamental and security-important as logging out? To my mind it should always be in the same position as the place you click to logIN!!! In the case of the page I am viewing (with Windows/Google Chrome) I cannot even see any indication of my name/login name/face icon, let alone a toolbar, menu-bar or the word "File".
  13. I must be thick. After being logged into my "Evernote Web" I could not find a Logout. I googled for how to logout of Evernote web and it said "Windows: click your name in the toolbar then click Sign Out , or , select file Sign Out from the menu bar" I am using Google Chrome browser. I cannot see the toolbar, file, or menu bar. Where are they please? (I know how to logout of Evernote Desktop)
  14. Sorry people. I did not mean to mislead. My particular issue (which was to do with encrypted text) is "case closed"
  15. Hi CalS. I am bewildered to tell you that all seems normal today when I tried your instructions. I was on the verge of going back to the restore point I made just before the V 6.11 update if that failed. I can now copy a section with multiple paragraphs from a webpage then paste (with style match) inside a box and it all goes in the box. . About drag line down.... Previously I could click & hold on the lowest border of the box that appears after decryption and drag the line down and that enlarged the box by creating space under the lowest line of contained text. I cannot do that today. It may have been one of the thick lines that I could drag .. not sure. I cannot explain why all is OK now other than a W8.1 update happened this morning. Anyway, "case closed" now I hope and thanks.
