  1. It's understandable that by saying "backup" one is referring to saving data in a particular program's proprietary format (EN, Excel, InDesign etc.) that could potentially be used at some future date to restore data. Although I do perform such backups regularly, I also want a way to output notes to a format that can be read outside of EN-- including unencrypted material. A paper, hard copy even that can be safely stored and accessed by family members who don't use EN (as one example).
  2. I've been using EN for a long while. Initially I just was saving personal notes that had no security implications. Various clips from the www, bookmarks, and such. Over time I began to use more for things like website logins to store names/passwords. For "public" kinds of sites-- forums, news, vendors, etc. I wasn't that concerned about security. I'm now at a point where I actually do have some notes containing much more sensitive information such as CCard sites and banks. At that point I began encrypting all of that information but I have to admit I never took an in-depth look at how "s
  3. Yep, we're pretty much on the same page when it comes to effort vs. reward with respect to data management. When the old stuff does "leap out at me" it's like looking at a time machine in some respects. Sometimes pleasant, other times almost frightening. 😄
  4. Hmmm... that doesn't seem to work for me. Perhaps I'm missing something?
  5. Sounds like a good approach. Don't want to go that route myself hence looking for a way to export encrypted notes. Might not be possible I guess... I've been using EN for many years and one of these days (famous last words) I need to sit down and go through all my notebooks that contain notes that have long since become useless.
  6. Apologies if this has been discussed but couldn't find a solution by searching... I have around 900 notes and probably at least 10% of them contained encrypted information. What I want to do is to create a backup of all notes, but when I do that via .html e.g. the encrypted notes remain encrypted. Is there any way to export notes and "unencrypt" notes?
  7. Would uninstalling completely from my desktop and reinstalling be likely to fix anything?
  8. Yeah, I've done numerous tests with all devices. All works as expected with respect to all devices except when making any edits on the desktop. Those edits don't appear on any devices when I manually sync but it will update any info created on the other devices and overwrite what I did on the desktop. But to you point "Does the PC indicate the note is sync'd" there is a red exclamation point when I manually sync from the PC. If I close/reopen EN it goes away. I had not given that much thought as I asked about that previously and seem to remember it wasn't necessarily a problem. But lookin
  9. Hardly a stupid question as that's not beyond the realm of possibility when it comes to something I might do. But in this case, I have only ever had this one EN account.
  10. Ok, finally getting back to looking into this problem... Thanks much for all the input with regard to what the cause might be and possible solution for my syncing issues. It seems EN has upset a number of users with it's "forced" upgrade policy. I can well understand and relate to the reaction. In my case I only use EN at a very basic level. Pretty much as a random note taker where I store things like www addresses, logins, etc. Nonetheless a very important tool I pay for. I've gone ahead and updated EN on my PC but it's still not working. I'm finding that I can open/edit/crea
  11. I make an edit on my computer e.g. then sync all devices but the updated information does not appear on any of the other devices (phone/tablet). Worked fine until lately now it's something of a mess with unsynced data. Any ideas where to start looking?
  12. I had tried different options so the screen capture might not have shown the correct options checked. However, I took your advice and signed out/in (having had to search for how to do that!) and... Presto-- whatever that reset worked. The options in the capture window are completely different and now much more useful and do exactly what I want. Thanks much for your assistance!
  13. Thanks Guru-- but I'm still not there... I made a notebook in Evernote "WEBClips". I can set that as the "Clip to selected notebook" option in Evernote. In options for Clipper, I don't see what you're showing plus that "WEBClips" notebook doesn't even show up. To make matters worse, even though Clipper says it's saved the clip (in the wrong notebook) it's not there and doesn't appear anywhere in Evernote.
  14. Never have been able to get it to work. Everything I clip goes to the wrong notebook. I've changed the default notebook but still doesn't work-- insists on sending everything to a notebook I don't even use much. Would be much better if when clipped you were prompted for the target notebook but I can live with it as is if only I can set the notebook myself that Clipper uses. What am I doing wrong?? Just upgraded to Plus also... Using Evernote 6.2.4.3244
