  1. Thank you for this. I'm on the other side of the spectrum--I have over 30,000 notes, and probably 1/3 have PDFs. In my early use of Evernote I saved PDFs to my drive and used the feature that automatically imported things from selected folders. However, eventually I gave way to just clipping them, since it is very efficient to do so, and now I would guess the majority of my PDFs only exist in Evernote. My main database is about 20 GB on my local drive. Sounds like moving to OneNote would not be a net plus for me.
  2. Reading the 20 or so posts a day in this thread has become a highlight of my day, please don't take it away!
  3. Hey Marc--could you describe how large your data are; i.e. roughly how many notes, how many have attachments, and how the migration has worked for you regarding preserving notebooks, tags, attachments, etc? I'm really interested in your experience as most of the time it seems people around here consider OneNote a poor substitute. (Note to all--I'm not stating a fact or attempting to be critical, but that is my rough impression after reading here for years, so if you disagree and love OneNote I'd love to hear that, but please don't light me on fire for that remark!).
  4. I'm still using 6.16.4 Windows client--it's laggy as it has been for years, but stable. I quit using iOS a long time ago as sync kept going haywire--too bad, I liked to use my mobile to catch up in the evening. So that's about 40% of functionality lost to me. I'm hopeful as always. I lost a bunch of stuff last year when I discovered a bug in EN after making several notebooks local trying to improve performance. Way back, they tried what I felt was wrong-headed on-demand sync, and when I made notebooks local, all the unsynced notes content were lost. Support helped me find a backup I had made and it is possible to repair them ONE BY ONE, and as they are old archive for client work I have not taken the time. Every so often I look at that folder of an old dB on my desktop, and think, someday. I don't feel I have the time to try other solutions and work through all the issues--my notes are heavily populated with PDFs so any migration has to do that automatically or it's DOA. I played with Notion, and see the updates, but haven't had time to try the more recent migration options to see if I could really do it. Given that I no longer do multi-device thanks to the iOS issues (for me) and I'm a one-person company, I could downgrade to non-premium, I suppose. However, the real thing that holds me back is the web clipper and ability to route emails into EN. The latter let's me subscribe to all manner of industry stuff I use for my consulting and then organize it in one place, vs. going to email then going to something else. The former is how I get pretty much all other content, aside from occasional PDFs that I cannot directly clip as PDF for some reason. I had a CEO once who said a company should only deliver enough value to customers to prevent them from leaving for the next best option, and keep the rest of the value for the company. This seems very much like that.
  5. I have been working towards getting a memory and SSD upgrade for my laptop; maybe soonish. I hope it helps, but even if not, I want it for other reasons. I'm actually pretty happy with the version I'm running; it's almost as if everyone needs to find their own sweet spot and just stay put, ignore the updates for as long as possible, etc.
  6. Pretty much my identical scenario, except I have 27,000 + notes, and many thousands have PDFs attached. Several open tickets for "not responding" issue with the usual rebuild dB, change settings, etc. Nothing worked. I'm currently using (308094) Public (CE Build ce-58.1.6897) which is the best I've had in a year or more, and I have refused the last several updates, afraid to try them. There are a few bugs in this version but it seems stable and doesn't hang as much as earlier "bad" versions.
  7. FYI, the above is boilerplate. I've been sent this exact text several times. Not clear if the expert knows anything.
  8. This has been happening to me for about 2 years, with no fix. I resort to finding an email of anyone at EN who contacted me and going that route.
  9. :-) Good suggestions; I'll get to this during the long refractory period between when the Evernote Apocalypse does arrive (if ever) and when they stop supporting my client version.
  10. “If you open the HTML file with a browser the PDFs are inline so to speak. Don't know if it helps much...” yes, “content” is there. Not what I want but okay if no other option.
  11. When I export in Windows, the PDFs are not there--there are images of them, as cgi files. The html files are stored one level above the folders, which is also messy.
  12. Just a couple thoughts from my perspective. I'm an independent consultant and have used Evernote for several years in my business. It helps me organize information in projects, create some documents (although I do that mainly in other tools), and importantly collect things from the web like articles, pdfs, images, etc. that are relevant content. Importantly is the ability to search (which I wish was much more powerful than it is) and access content at any time (even years later for some projects) as well as the automation that associates the original web address with the content, in case I need to verify it is the same, as well as provide references (many reports I write require referencing all external content--clients want that). So, it's important to me and deeply integrated into my work and therefore my livelihood. Having framed it that way: 1) If I had it to do over I would have a more robust way to independently access the content, in the event of issues, closure of EN, etc. Unfortunately, I have a very high % of PDFs in my data, and the export to HTML does not address that. Going back and matching PDFs with content is a pain I hope I don't have to face. The reality is then that I could go to another platform but probably would NOT migrate legacy projects. Therefore, under almost any scenario I see myself continuing to use the Windows client for a long time. 2) Considering what using it ongoing might mean in the scenarios some of you have painted, I have convinced myself of the following: absent a complete shutdown of Evernote and therefore their servers, I expect I could freeze my setup at the version I use now and I could use that for years at least. My reasoning is that any company is very unlikely, even if they decide to roll out completely new clients to all platforms, to cut off the existing users very fast. However, that day could come, but it would give me a lot of time to figure out what's next. I'm "relatively" happy with Windows 6.16.4 and have stopped updating for now as it seems stable enough and the pathologies (bugs or "features") I don't like are things I can live with. It's better than it was last summer, so my trend has been positive. 3) Some of you may recall that EN DID roll out a Windows client that looked and worked almost the same as the Web, and the user community revolted and they relented. That version was never to be seen again, as far as I can tell. I would be astonished if they did that again. I take the blog comments to mean harmonizing feature sets, not necessarily code, but I could be very wrong. However, if they really try to go with one version, for me, if it WORKS, is reasonably "not slow", and doesn't crash or lose data, I'll probably be OK. Some years ago I was firmly in the camp of "no web-only apps for me", as I wanted "control" of having local data etc. However, over time I've become converted. Examples include Wunderlist (although Microsoft may yet ruin that!), Toggl, reddit, Linkedin, Slack, and Twitter. Although some of these have Windows clients or "Windows apps", I stopped using them as, for instance, the Windows Slack app is a memory hog, and it runs fine in my browser. I have the reddit app on my iOS devices but use it in-browser otherwise. Toggl and Wunderlist have never had Windows native clients. At any rate, I'll keep hoping for the best. I do appreciate the points of view here as I would not have interpreted things in the ways that some of you have, and it has given me some good insights. Nonetheless, if I don't work I don't get paid (at all!) so I'll stop rambling and go back to work, including with Evernote.
  13. Ironically although I found the remarks encouraging and appreciate the release notes with recent versions my iOS app quit syncing in the last couple of weeks, and as before I deleted reinstalled and resynced but it stopped syncing again. So for now it’s not usable. But I’m looking forward to continuous improvement.
  14. This was happening to me regularly in 6.14.x, without any other issues. So far 6.15 is better behaved, but it's early. So it "could" be Windows, but "seems" more like an EN-Windows thing.
  15. I believe this is a bug; unsure if it was in earlier but did not notice in 6.15 Run saved search--has multiple items with "any" option Open a note from search results Note opens to a wide view, but highlighting is present on search terms ('correct_highlight.jpg') Change width of note window; highlighting goes away ('incorrect_highlight.jpg')
