  1. @jefito - that link is mainly IOS/Android apps. I actually wanted something for MacOS - yes I know I'm in the Windows forum. Yeah I twigged it was a Premium feature - it was staring me in the face :facepalm: For the 'application' in question there are other reasons to think of Evernote apart from PDF annotating. But I'm not sure that the person who has the 'problem' will be willing to pay annual subscription for Premium. It's a pity there's not a Premium Local for a one off price (e.g. $50) - I can get a couple of 4Tb drives for the price of a years Premium. Thanks RP
  2. I just tested PDF Annotations in Free and it says I can only annotate 10 PDFs. What do I need to have unlimited use of this feature? Do I need Premium or is it an add-on of some sort? tia RP
  3. RightPaddock:  Thanks for your comment on the Evernote icon.  I highly appreciate the quality solution you presented.  I have been in touch repeatedly to Evernote to clean out the irrelevant poster like Super Guru.  If you know nothing about Evernote or the basics of efficient use of a computer (Super Guru) get a hobby. 

    In any event, we out here in the computer mega universe appreciate those posters with solutions!  Thanks to all of you for taking the time!

  4. I went this route. It allowed me to some tidying up along the way. And it it was far less fiddlesome than I anticipated - a snap really. Thanks all
  5. Thanks all, looks like I have the right idea I'll try a couple of different sequences of - install, connect, relocate data (don't want it on my SSD), replace what's there with backup.
  6. I have access to the server located databases. But I repeat "most of my notebooks are local." The local notebooks are in whoever.exb, Attachments etc. I am not seeing them. I see the Tags but not the Notes. The path D:\Application Data\Evernote is the same on both the old and new systems RP
  7. I'm building myself a new computer (old one is playing up) - most of my notebooks are local, I've moved the data and configured local data to refer to that location, but I'm not seeing and local databases
  8. I like the dark side bar, but why stop there, make the menu and toolbar similarly dark. And allow users to set different colours for the index and content panels depending which one has keyboard focus - e.g. #ADD8E6 if panel has keyboard focus, otherwise #CCCCFF. They should tone quite well with the midnight blue sidebar.
  9. Remove the bodgy pinned icon from the taskbar with right click->Unpin Start Evernote from a Win+S search Right click the Elephant that just appeared on the taskbar and pin to the taskbar When you exit EN, the Elephant you just pinned to the taskbar should still be there. @gazumped - tip: if you pin your most often used programs to the taskbar you can start them with WinKey+1, WinKey+2 etc. Also WinKey+T will give focus to the first item in the taskbar, you can then traverse the items with arrow keys (up arrow wraps to last), press Enter to run the program, press MenuKey to access the context menu. Whilst typing the above I solved the issue I came to ask about - too embarrassed to say what it was, but the solution is to hit Escape
  10. Notebooks are a unit of storage - if I delete an EN notebook, then it and all the notes in it are deleted. If I delete all the notes in a Notebook I'm left with an empty notebook. Much like a directory/folder in a file system. Tags are a means of reference - if I delete a tag no notes are deleted, if I delete all the notes that reference a tag the tag is deleted, if I remove all the references to a tag the tag is deleted. Most tagging schemes are likewise ephemeral - i.e. they are created when they're first used and they're deleted when they're no longer used. It's that characteristic that leads to them being nothing more than a label with a reference count perhaps. Onenote may not have Evernote's ephemeral tags, but you can set up a keyword vocabularies via keyword notebooks. And because the keywords are in themselves notes, they can have data, whereas EN tags are a just label. In ON it's easy to browse from a note into a keyword notebook and establish a link - doing the same thing in EN is awkward and error prone. With ON keyword notebooks you won't have as many problems with keyword (tag) proliferation due to misspellings etc. The phrase 'keyword notebooks' is mine, you wont find it in any ON doco. I use EN and ON for different purposes, they each have there strengths and weaknesses - eg if I need the notes to be available on Android then I prefer using EN.
  11. [Solved] - as a long shot I ran an sfc \scannow, When the links are pasted in HTML documents they are pasted as Hyperlinks - i.e. <href="blah" Title></a>. I assumed that's what EN Copy Note Link put in the clipboard. But it doesn't do that, it just puts the URI in the clipboard. It's only if its pasted into something 'HTML', such as Evernote itself, or a blog post, that the raw URI gets encapsulated in an HTML <a href...> tag. And the fact that an sfc \scannow fixed my problem means that Windows is somehow involved in the encapsulation process. Everything into which I paste the links (such as EN itself) is HTML under covers, so I never needed to consider what was actually in the clipboard. For me, that's the first time since XP that sfc \scannow even found anything to repair, and maybe the first time ever, that a repair actually solved a specific problem. I could try to figure out the precise cause of the problem from the CBS logs, but I probably won't unless it happens again. But I still get that bizarre EN Firefox clipper dialogue - I'll test it on a vanilla profile. Firefox Extensions often tread on one another's toes. Added - the bizarre EN Clipper dialogue must be due to another Firefox add on - its OK if I add the clipper to a vanilla profile <sigh>
  12. I was hoping someone might advise me on how to revert to an earlier version. So what happened to the pivot to Asia. It's not only Down Under that's enjoying Monday morn, also Japan, China, Indonesia, India etc etc - i.e. about half the worlds population!
  13. My understanding is that ctrl/click is about getting a local link for a note in an Online notebook (ie one that's synchronised to the Web). Most but not all of the notes for which I want a link are in a local notebooks. But yes, I did try it. All I get in the clipboard is the URI whether its local or online i.e. evernote:///blah.... or h t t p s://www evernote.com/blah.... respectively. In previous versions I got <a href="evernote:///blah...." Note Title></a> for local links, and <a href="h t t p s://www evernote.com/blah..." Note Title></a> for online links. PhilD .
  14. Thanks AndreasM. EN and other experts - my earlier post (above) that AndreasM quoted, has absolutely NOTHING whatsoever to do with tags, notebooks, folders or shortcuts etc The Copy Link Note feature has been crippled to the point that its ^%$#*! useless. Despite being old, I am pretty good at coping with change, the various cosmetic changes in this release didn't bother me after an hour or two. I like Win 10 better than Win 7, I much prefer MS Office Ribbons to the chaotic button bars and menus they replaced . But I am not good at coping with features being shipped that have been broken - wilfully or accidentally. From me EN gets 0% for its ability to test - has it not heard of regression testing, And here's another thing that's broken - The EN extension for Firefox
  15. Windows 10, Evernote Previously the Copy Note Link context menu item copied the note title and uri as - <a href="blah blah" style="color:#69aa35">Title</a> - into the clipboard, viz: <a href="evernote:///view/12032092/s105/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000/9a96e1c8-de9c-44bf-9841-b60e9ee40830-562/" style="color:#69aa35">CRASH 2: Radical Reality is the only thing that can save us now</a> Now all I get is the uri evernote:///view/12032092/s105/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000/9a96e1c8-de9c-44bf-9841-b60e9ee40830-562/ I use EN Note links extensively within EN and within other applications to link to EN. This is more than annoying, IMO meaningful Note Links were EN's best feature, for me their lack removes 90% of the rationale for using EN! Is there an old version I can revert to whilst you're fixing this, I'm reticent to do it without advice because a recent update did a database conversion of some sort. Phil D - Ψ³
