  1. andy, yeah there are lots of programmers that have managed to allow encrypted notes and such in their apps, Lastpass etc. but obviously we are evernote users and dont want to use multiple apps depending on what kind of notes we have. gazumped seems to really have a problem with the idea of passworded notes; he keeps wracking his brain to come up with reasons it would be a bad idea. this time he shifted the discussion to "how do you search inside of encrypted notes, thats impossible, millions of dollars would be needed, willing to buy it yourself?". *facepalm* i appreciate the snideness, but no we aren't asking to search inside password protected notes (no one even brought that up). we just want to be able to be able to password protect them, its actually a pretty simple concept. I'm sure it would take some effort on Evernotes part to figure it out, but it does seem like a pretty important function and I think they will implement it at some point, but it appears it's not a priority for them atm.
  2. totally. but i'd add it to mobile and browser versions as well. another problem with not having password protected notes: say you had a slightly embarassing note, like a poem you wrote, or notes to talk to you therapist about, etc. if you use evernote on your work computer, sometimes evernote will display the most recent note. So even if you wrote a personal note from home, your work computer could get restarted and all of a sudden your personal note is loaded on your work computer screen. like you said, this makes you need two note taking apps. one for almost everything (evernote), and one for personal notes. with how popular and useful evernote is, its totally silly that you cant password encode notes. and its also silly that so many people come out and defend not having this option
  3. yes going premium allowed me to recover it! thank you
  4. new idea: use the finder to find the Evernote application support folder in the TM Drive itself (from the era I choose) and copy that to the desktop. Then conduct my search that way. Only I don't know how to get to these hidden files in the context of a Finder search of an external drive: user/library/application support/com.evernote to unhide them on the Mac I would "go to folder" and type "~/Library/" and then dig from there. I'm not sure how to access the hidden files outside of this context.....
  5. So i clicked on this individual note file and hit restore (after learning you can restore individual files). I would prefer to COPY the file and not risk messing anything up, but whatever. So I restored it, and then did the same search in the folder on my current computer and nothing showed up. What the heck? Now i'm not sure what I restored. sadness
  6. Made progress, but hit a roadblock. So I found the user/library/application support/com.evernote.Evernote folder and did a search inside just that folder and realized I could find the xhtml document for ANY note. The note will show up in the search results as "note.xhtml" (they all are named this). Great! Then I realized I can find any note that I search for except the one I am trying to find! This must be part of the glitch. But the progress doesnt stop here.. I was able to use the same method of xhtml note finding inside time machine from a few days earlier, and low and behold, there are results to that search! So it looks like it's finding the note when I search for it in time machine! Now the problem is that I don't know how to get that note and bring it back to the real world. I tried copy, which it let me do, but then on my current desktop it wouldnt let me paste it. There is a big button in the bottom right corner of Time Machine that says "restore", but I don't want to restore anything, I just want to grab this file. Normally I could search for it on the Time Machine drive itself, but all the notes use the same name. :-/
  7. I have a note that I recently renamed. After re-naming it, Evernote dropped me back a month ago and lists a few "conflicting modifications". I don't have any of the changes I've made to the note for the last month. I realized it must be because I accidentally re-named it to the same name as a different note I forgot I had made (and was actually different information). Now I have both notes, but I've lost the information for the last month of edits on one of them! I use Time Machine and have everything backed up... is there a way to replace my note from a few days ago before I re-named it and Evernote glitched it up? Also, if I buy Evernote premium will this prevent this from happening in the future? I'm a bit paranoid now...
  8. it looks like it works when i use the software. however a lot of the time I am not on my home computer; i am at work, school, or a friends house. it wouldnt be an easy solution for me to install evernote on all of these each time. but thank you, i got my answer. i'll check back in a couple years and see if theyve added password protectable notes. i'm sure it will happen eventually.
  9. ive tried text encryption. it doesnt work for me (Safari, Mavericks). No option when following the instructions. Look at this example of my top secret omlette recipe. (no right-click encryption options) Even if it did work, I think highlighting a bunch of text ( a document could be very large) and encrypting and unencrypting every time is unintuitive and cumbersome to workflow. A document that quickly prompts you for a password when first opened would be extremely useful.
  10. This is the one basic feature ive been waiting for since the beginning. Every year or so I look into it to see if they've added it yet. Password Encrypt certain notes. A lot of us keep our Evernote logged in on our "safe" personal computers (home and office). So anyone that sits down has full access to everything. Not to mention logging into evernote in a public place and having personal info pop up on the screen because it was the last note you made (as opposed to that note not displaying until you type in it's password). do we still not have this feature? just checking.
  11. i never made another account, but im not sure how i would check that, if i made one without knowing. ive used evernote for a long time and only setup 2 step within the last year. i only have one account, one email i use and one phone number. i guess its possible but i have no idea how i would have made a second account without realizing it. i would check to make sure, but im not sure how i would do that...
  12. I set up my Evernote for 2-step authentication and it seemed very familiar. I thought I had already done this but it said it was not set-up, so I did it. Then I realized I had done this for Evernote in the past... Now my Google Authenticator has two instances of Evernote in it, with different numbers. How did this happen? I went to delete the first one but then it warned me that I could be locked out forever, so I got scared and left it there. :-/
