  1. They are local notebooks so they don't get synched to the cloud, and they didn't work from Word which I regard as the yardstick. But for the 'application' that relies on links to and from other applications I've decided to use local html pages rather than EN notes. The EN note export feature does pretty good job with the notebook in question. The other applications are open source so if push comes… . It's not the first time I've have the rug pulled from under me when I've used software - creatively.
  2. In the Legacy version - "evernote:///view.blah-blah" - links only work from within Evernote, but not from eternal applications. After I backup my notebooks to HTML I will try doing a system restore back to Thursday.
  3. I tried the installer I had - it installed ok, but it would not let me 'login' because it didn't have an internet connection 😒 That's the sort of fragility I've struck before. So, I downloaded and installed the 'legacy' version. Pleased to report that it has given me access to my data. Now at least I can look for an alternative that can read exported data. Local notebook support is the main reason I have stuck with Evernote. At one stage I was considering a switch to OneNote, but then MS did the same thing, forced everything into it's cloud. The main reasons I have a BASIC account are: My primary use of EN is to store 'free format' data that is arbitrarily linked to and from local 'databases' that I access and maintain with other applications. I don't have an 'always on' 24*7*365 internet connection, which is why I want all my data local; I have never found a usage case for any of the Premium advanced features; I don't need extra online storage or traffic; If there was an account type that allowed users to have local notebooks at a modest cost I would subscribe in the blink of an eye. Example: I subscribe to MS Office 365, but I don't put my documents into MS OneDrive. Not even for backup purposes, I prefer to stick with the commercial FTP service I've used for the past 30+ years.
  4. Thanks When it comes to installing/reinstalling/uninstalling I've found Evernote to be rather fragile. I do have have my local notebooks backed up, locally and to a commercial FTP server. The reason I want to keep local notebooks is that I have other applications that have evernote:\\ links embedded in their databases and vice-versa. Problem these days is that every vendor want to have everything confined to their narrow focus walled garden. I am going wait to see if any Evernote for Windows users respond
  5. How can I get back to Evernote version - I have the installer. I wouldn't be surprised if the the lack of any meaningful warning that everything must be moved onto your servers after installing this new version may be regarded as unconscionable conduct under consumer protection laws in some jurisdictions. You have effectively STOLEN years of my work. If I had known this was coming I would have found an alternative application. To say I'm disgusted is a gross understatement.
  6. @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
  7. 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
  8. 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!

  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
