  1. It was thanks Gazumped. It deals with it explicitly in there.
  2. Hi, For the first time since I joined around 10 years ago I let my Premium lapse. I retired and don't use it as much 🙂 Well it appears I can't live without it on all my devices so I am about to rejoin. One thing though. A while ago EN thought it would be a good idea to tell everybody that real people somewhere would be reading their notes. I know at the time they pulled back on that but does anybody know what the situation is now?
  3. Thanks True and on reflection i'll probably do that. My first thought was to get the online books empty because at the moment the sync button just sits there spinning whenever I load the client, and as I said, I just can't be bothered getting a fix for it. Still, I don't suppose it's a big deal so your suggestion is the way to go.
  4. Here to validate my plan for EN use from hereon. Would appreciate feedback re it's workability. Context. I am a long-time EN Premium user. I started paying for it within weeks of first loading it and have been with them ever since (decade+). From time to time I would have a technical problem and with the exception of one (luckily coincided with me getting a new PC) all were fixed. Unfortunately I seem to experience issues more frequently and yesterday syncing stopped again. I know the drill, raise a ticket, send my logs (including all note titles unless I am prepared to muck about for ages), try a few things, finally reinstall unless the Ctrl-Help options work. I just can't be bothered knowing that within a few months I will have to go through it all again. Therefore, the plan. I intend to shift all synced notes over to a local notebook and leave them there. I will copy any I need on my phone over to Onenote and sync with that, but this is no more than 100 notes. I will copy the EN database over to my mothballed MAC just in case of any data loss elsewhere. What I am not clear on is if I might lose some functionality, e.g. ability to search for text within images that are contained in notes might disappear? I might lose some PDF search capability? I won't scan anything else into EN in future so it is functionality on existing notes that I am considering. I would leave the notes like this for possibly years so might occasionally have to upgrade the EN client, but I think I can do that for as long as a free account is offered, so I see no issues there.
  5. Yes, I be fine. And I am sure they be thinking "Yay, Feedback"
  6. One man's criticism is another man's feedback, and I thought those in the products and services game were supposed to love feedback. If I erred and stumbled on a safe space where they are supposed to be able to come and see only the positive just let me know and I'll modify my posts accordingly.
  7. Wait! Come back! Where are you going with this. This isn't about who writes the release notes, it's about the tone and professionalism of them.
  8. Yes, I realise that and I know that some EN employees are here, hence I posted here. It's not exactly a support issue but after reading the juvenile c**p every release, I had a point to make.
  9. Dear Evernote, Why are your release notes always written on bring-your-child-to-work-day? Well, I hope they are! Or maybe you're running an apprenticeship and starting them early. Either way, is there any chance that somebody over the age of 12 could be given the job of writing the release notes? Because 'Take that, "Big Paper”!', and ' Yay, buzzwords!', and ' Seems obvious, right? We thought so too.', to me, albeit over the pond (cultural differences?), makes you seem like a bunch of unprofessional clowns.
  10. Umm, yeah, I know. A completely different process I would love to see it do.
  11. Well I guess concerns about people accessing things "when we are not around" is a general concern about any information held on any device. A concern that's often raised here is the privacy of the stuff we put up in the cloud using EN. I use EN extensively for all sorts of stuff but there remain some things I just won't put up there. I tend to use offline books for some of this stuff, and the feature that I would LOVE, is that EN would sync notes across these offline books using secure transport but without storing them on EN severs. So, I'd have access to all my cloud-based notebooks from anywhere, like a browser, or my PC, for example. But, I could create an offline book on my Mac and have it replicated on my PC, and be able to choose which devices held which books. Marvellous. I kind of do this now, using directory replication software, but to see it in EN's functionality would be great.
  12. Well Ryan, if you only use Evernote for 2 notes, I think you're probably not using the most appropriate product anyway. But some feedback for you on your issue. I actually like the fact that you can write where you have put "you should not be able to write here". I have many notes where much of the content is not sensitive but I want to hide just a few parts of it, so I highlight those parts and encrypt them, and then I write other things around them. Evernote does not offer protection to a whole note, it allows you to encrypt as much as you want of one, but not necessarily all of one. I think they've got that right. That said, the reason I am here today on a rare look at the forum is because their support is absolutely hopeless, and I'm a Premium user of 8 years.
  13. Because they're broke and need the money. And, like many "improvements" they've made in the past, this could turn out to be another that doesn't result in new customers and more income.
  14. Well that Mini FAQ looked so authoritative and official. But was it wrong? I am now confused about the level of encryption used at Evernote.
