  1. Hi Ellen--that works perfectly! Thank you for the tip. And thank you to Evernote--I use it constantly and it really helps me organize my business.
  2. Ah. For some reason I thought the iOS apps were pure cloud. For example, nothing is local (available offline) unless you specifically mark the notebook to be available offline.
  3. Sorry I wasn't clear. I'm on a web page that is a PDF. I use the feature from chrome with the little box with the arrow, which gives me options like mail, message, Evernote, LinkedIn etc. I choose Evernote. The Evernote dialogue comes up allowing me to edit title, add tags, choose a notebook. When that dialogue opens the small compass/clock spins all the way around but never changes the another icon. When this sort of clipping works, the icon changes typically to the web page icon etc. So I'm clipping not saving and it is going t the cloud not my device. Same thing on iPhone.
  4. On iPhone and iPad when I try to save PDF the little clock goes all the way around but never completes. App just sits there. Usually I cancel then email. Has been this way for a long time.
  5. I would like a feature in notes that lets me flag them as "always on top" in any search in which they should appear. This would allow me to keep certain items on top that I want to work on etc. A check box in the note info menu would be a convenient place to set this.
  6. Better late than never, my approach to this often uses the "create table of contents" which nicely makes a linked list of whatever notes I have group selected, then I can edit that into a check list, as well as add a reminder. For me, the biggest gap in addressing to-dos in Evernote is the inability to make recurring remindrers. I have a long-term goal to see if I can do that using something like IFTTT or Zapier.
  7. Support confirmed this is a real issue and has been added to their queue to fix.
  8. I found a bug regarding merging notes that are not synced: I sent this to support, but if it is real, then those of you using on-demand sync could probably repro. If you don't merge things, this is irrelevant. EN Windows 6.5.4.4720 Windows 10 lenovo Y50 Previously I had enabled on-demand sync I discontinued using as I had issues with waiting for notes to load After de-enabling, some notes were un-synced (hollow circle icon), both recent, and past history Performed a merge of several notes in one notebook where some were not synced Expected result: EN would load the notes, then sync, then place source notes in trash Actual result: EN merged to an incomplete result I verified this by inspecting notes in the trash Some I had to wait for "loading...." to complete (in trash) After that, I found there were fewer entries in the merged note than in all the original notes Also, the merged note has the headers in odd sequence--in some areas of the resulting (merged) note, there are several headers without content all in a row There is also one "extra" note in the trash with partially merged content.
  9. Not sure if this is the best place to post a suggestion on this version, or if I should post to the 6.5 GA, but here goes: I would like to see on-demand sync be a notebook property, meaning I could select only certain notebooks to be handled on-demand, and leave the others alone. I think such a feature would allow users to apply on-demand sync to less active folders, for example. In my case, I have a lot of material coming into my default notebook from external sources (emails). The bugs I have reported notwithstanding, I could apply it only to that notebook and it would significantly improve performance, without de-syncing my other notebooks. I could learn to work around the downsides (for me) if it were limted to a few notebooks.
  10. Reporting a bug. It has been around for a while, just getting around to reporting it. EN 6.5.4.4720 on Windows 10 lenovo Y50 laptop. The deleted notes should not reappear. Note that this is a search, and it is scoped to one notebook, so once they are on the trash, they should not appear in this search. I believe the same thing happens without a search, but I'm reporting it as I found it.
  11. I wanted to post an update. I have reverted back to *NOT* on-demand sync. The reason for me is the behavior where notes that were synced locally are being removed from the local dB, so when I access them later, I have to wait through "loading". My use model is I clip and store tons of information on various topics, including a lot of PDFs but other things just as note content. I constantly search and review notes in the search results. There isn't much of a predictable pattern, so I'm seeing often the open circles on content previously available. The performance hit there was too much for me. Having said that, the issues I had before with extreme sensitivity to RAM utilization seem to have been abated. I have no idea why. Perhpas the issue will return once my dB is fully populated again. Bottom line, on-demand sync for new stuff was good, but pruning the dB is not good. I realize there are issues in the Evernote dB setup for Windows. I really appreciate the efforts to improve, but this one doesn't work for me.
  12. Thank you! I overlooked the backslash escape. Here is what works (I think this is due to the email address after): author:"\"Telecompaper*"
  13. I'm having trouble with search using the author field. Here are an example that works, and one that doesn't. I suspect the latter has to do with the quoted name in the field, is there a way around this? field value for author in note information: TelecomLead <editor@telecomlead.com> search: author:telecomlead* returns all expected notes field value for author in note information: "Telecompaper" <headlines@mail.telecompaper.com> none of the following searches returns any results: author:telecompaper* author:mail.telecompaper* author:telecompaper.com author:mail.telecompaper.com author:"Telecompaper" author:"Telecompaper <headlines@mail.telecompaper.com>" author:headlines@mail.telecompaper* author:headlines@mail.telecompaper.com author:headlines*
  14. This is problematic to me if a full description of what is happening. For my main use model, I can see notes I'm trying to search (they are new) and if they are synced (the circle thing). But I also often search existing content. Going back to the other thread about the upcoming feature to delete local content that isn't used recently, this could blow up my business if I miss things I should find in search that have "expired". This could be especially problematic for notes I have sent directly into notebooks (instead of the default, which I use as an "inbox"). I route notes based on topic/content and expect they will be in search results in the future, even if I have never read them before. I think I can work around this by more or less negating the benefits of on-demand sync, by ensuring that new stuff is synced, then contorolling settings to ensure nothing ever expires. The problem would remain for directly filed notes, so I'm concerned about that. Anyone care to straighten me out?
  15. Reading back through I wonder if I should play with this setting? I'm a bit nervous about the idea that local stuff could be removed in the future case using the setting to get rid of local data that hasn't been viewed for a configurable amount of time. If I change this setting to push more to the subdirectory will that content stay regardless of the time since last viewing setting? in reality I probably won't care about local or not as s lot of stuff I do is in the cloud anyway. So I mainly want to figure out optimized settings.
