  1. I will try to keep this short. I'll start out with where I am now--I don't know what Evernote data will be on my Mac tomorrow. Evernote would freeze every so often. I ran Etrecheck and found it was crashing multiple times each day. I wrote in and was told to look for a check mark in notes to identify any that were not synced. I responded and asked if there were some easier way to see the checkmarks as it was going to take me a long time to check 3,000 notes. I was then told to move a large folder from my library top to my desktop so it would rebuild the index. That's not something I do much and didn't feel confident. I was getting some warnings about quitting Evernote so I sent another note in. I then got a message back to back up my data. I responded that I had already done what I was told and was worried about exiting. Then I noticed that there were only five notes on my computer out of the almost 3,000. My iphone and online seemed to have the correct amount. I still didn't know what the crashes were from but knew I wanted to avoid my computer overriding the 3,000 notes during a sync. I was instructed to use option-sync several times which did nothing. Meanwhile I'd sent Etrecheck reports, system log files and Evernote log files. I understand there is a sequence to be followed in problem solving, but at the same time, there were errors in directions, which didn't leave me feeling secure. This is about 9 days into the process with as many as 3 or 4 emails back and forth each day. Then I got a message that my case was being transferred to Tech Support. I thought I was talking to tech support but apparently not. I had a real "syncing" feel in my stomach. I got mew info fr,m Tech Support and just to be certain wrote back a history as there were so many emails, one could get lost. He confirmed that he understood and said to go ahead. The first instruction was to "Exit all Evernote Accounts." No such item appeared in the menu. I've written back 3 times but that was over he But I didn't have such a command. That was Friday and I've emailed back. So it's about now 14 days since I contacted them. I still had five notes on my Mac and 3k online and phone. That is until about an hour ago. An hour ago I checked again. It appears all the notes suddenly reappeared after about a week; I ran Etrecheck again and there haven't been any crashes. When the data disappears then re-appears a week later, I get nervous. During this period, I searched for how to do a backup or copy/export data from my iphone or online, but saw nothing. I don't know if tomorrow my data will disappear again. Can anyone offer a suggestion about: a) the initial crashes b) the problem quitting Evernote after moving the library folder c) the reason I lost most of the notes on my Mac. d) Why it didn't sync e) Why the notes spontaneously re-appeared f) Is there a way for me to backup online or from my phone if this happens again. g) What I should do to avoid problems h) How I can tell if the three locations have the same data. i) How I will be able to sleep.

  2. Yes that's correct. It does seem to work if I click on the elephant. The right click works on this page, but did not on some other web pages including cnet, forbes, and technobuzz. It also only offers one option on this page. So clicking the elephant may be better for me. I can see when it happens in the future and send you urls, if this is not enough. And I will use the icon from now on....it's better and easier for me.
  3. I have and haven't had problems before. This is with Firefox
  4. Web clippoer is not working for me on Macbook Air, 2019, Firefox 73.01.01 and OSX 10.15.3.3. Right clicking shows all options grayed out. Thjese come from the log: Select log file: Follow 16:50:10 GMT-0800 (Pacific Standard Time) (WARN) moz-extension://9312fea5-3dee-694c-a65d-20886083f7d7/background.html: chrome tabs query did not return a result while changing window focus /n16:50:30 GMT-0800 (Pacific Standard Time) (WARN) moz-extension://9312fea5-3dee-694c-a65d-20886083f7d7/background.html: chrome tabs query did not return a result while changing window focus /n16:57:36 GMT-0800 (Pacific Standard Time) (WARN) moz-extension://9312fea5-3dee-694c-a65d-20886083f7d7/background.html: chrome tabs query did not return a result while changing window focus
  5. I got it to work by using shift-cmd-v. Look in the edit menu for "Paste and Match Style" . I never would have thought of it because it CHANGES the style from White on Black to Black on White. I shall have to change the meaning of the word "Match" in the dictionary. It's been driving me crazy--and that is a pretty long drive!
  6. I'm not certain if this helps. I've found that I have to use shift-cmd-v for pasting. Otherwise I may get black on black. The irony is that shift-cmd-v says it will KEEP the formatting. I think it has something to do with dark mode.

  9. I've had items appear black on black, when copying from dark mode. Haven't been able to fix that until . I started using shift-cmd-v.
  10. On the mac, I have to use shift-command-v instead of command-v. The option doesn't seem to be there on ios.
  11. Try pasting with shift-command-v.
  12. I have finally figured the problem out. When pasting from Dark Mode on the Mac, instead of using Command-V, use Shift-Command-V to match the style. That fixes things. The workarounds above never worked for me. I'm surprised that I didn't find it in any of the help. Now that Catalina has everything in dark mode..... Thanks everyone.
  13. @dtlow......the problem is not finding in evernote but the ability to be consistent in how/where I save information. For some reason spotlight cannot find items I put on my grocery shopping list. I don't understand.....it's right on the refrigerator in plain view.
  14. There go my plans for total world domination!
  15. Thanks Pink and Low. Since I'm familiar with Wunderlist, I've got my stuff in there. It's taken a burden off that I have most written down. I did select dates for many of the items, but know they are almost placeholders. I understand what you mean by leaving them open. The fact that the list is in there is a big help. One of my problems is how and where I take notes--say a draft of a letter. I may do it in Evernote, or Mail, or Textedit, sometimes even a sticky note. Then I have trouble finding it. I've been trying to put more in Evernote. I've been scanning or downloading manuals, receipts, instructions, etc. and have made good headway into reducing the volume of paper here. Since I'm only in Chap 2 of GTD, I feel pretty good.
