  1. Oh, that's awesome. Thanks @DTLow! I was hoping for it to work like that. Being one to tread carefully, here's what I ended up doing (on the work computer): quit Evernote cd "Library/Group Containers/Q79WDW8YH9.com.evernote.Evernote/CoreNote/accounts/www.evernote.com" mv 31183258 ~/evernote-delete-me-31183258 start up Evernote; check everything out; looks good! cd ; rm -rf evernote-delete-me-31183258 (then, realized, a more secure delete would have been better - next time I would use the -P flag) Thanks, everyone! My problem is solved.
  2. Thanks @PinkElephant I do have access to both personal and work computers (laptops). But the other assumption isn't quite true. I admittedly have a complex setup. Two Evernote accounts, personal and work, each associated with their corresponding email. I already share a few notebooks from my work account to my personal account, so I can work from either computer. But the personal notebooks on my personal account are meant to never be on my work computer, obviously. During an Evernote upgrade on my work computer, I got logged out. The problem started with I inadvertently logged into my personal account from my work computer, and happily went into the usual work notebook (since it was a shared one, no surprise, nothing to immediately alert me to my mistake!). Meanwhile, Evernote happily sync'd all my personal data onto my work computer. I could just delete all my Evernote stuff, remove the app, etc., on my work computer. Then reinstall it fresh and only log into the work account. It's just that there's a lot of stuff, like 5 years of stuff. (My personal account goes back much, much further, and it's easily 10x as big.) I just thought I could circumvent, take a short cut, after I logged out of the personal and into the work account (from my work computer). In theory, that non-active folder should no longer be needed. But, you know, like you said, it's messing with the database in a way, and that could blow its mind.
  3. Hi, this is great. I navigated with Terminal to the same location (parent of, actually) and I see two folders, the currently used one, and a second account. You see, I had accidentally logged into my personal Evernote account on my work computer, then realized it several days later, and only later logged out. But the damage was already done, and copies of my personal notes still exist on my work computer. I see the two sub-folders (all digits) in my .../CoreNote/accounts/www.evernote.com folder, one being the active, work-related account that I'd like to keep. The other being the personal files one. Since I've already logged out from that "alternate" account, is it safe to remove this folder? (I'm thinking "rm -rf xxxxx" in Terminal, I'm comfortable with the command-line.) I'm thinking I would do it like this: 1. quit Evernote (app), 2. navigate into my .../CoreNote/accounts/www.evernote.com folder, 3. do the "rm -rf" command on the alternate number, 4. restart the Evernote app. Or is there a better way to accomplish this? (also: should I be asking this in a new posting? I thought the context of this comment was appropriate) ... thanks!
  4. I agree, this feature would be extremely useful for me for laptop, desktop, and phone, Android in my case. This is especially true for the phone use-case. I tend toward journal-like writing in a top-down manner. To make matters worse, I often sync between more than one device (e.g., working on both laptop & desktop back and forth)—a sync on the "receiving end" auto-scrolls back to the top. So, for long notes, I'm forever scrolling and scrolling down to the bottom. I accept that bottom-up notes would "fix" this for me, but that creates a new problem—bottom-up does not work for me. How would you write a chapter of a book? Bottom-up is very clumsy for this style of work, if not impossible. A general purpose tool like Evernote should not force a certain practice, rather offer flexibility for everyone to work in the manner they prefer. Please, Evernote, consider adding this feature. For the laptop and desktop case, a key shortcut would be perfect. For the smartphone, obviously something else—I suggest to include this item to the menu available at the top-right (icon is three dots vertically positioned), at least this is how I see it on Android; I'm assuming it looks similar on iOS. Otherwise, I love Evernote. It's a great tool that I use almost every hour of every day.
