  1. @PinkElephant what you refer to as sedimented data is what Windows 10 retains for a while in case of necessity to downgrade. If your computer is choked by these relatively few GB you have a serious Windows system problem, which is just not enough spare disk space. Cleaning out thse system leftovers in Win 10 has never made any of my PC's faster, it just freed space. System debris removed through system control never ever ends in the waste bin. No need to restart Windows either. Badly compiled software can make itself felt in two ways, one is choking RAM and the other is inefficient use of processor capabilities. No, it is not Microsoft's failure that Evernote with its sizeable database lingers on as 32bit application. The only other software I know of using an sqlite database is Adobe Lightroom Classic which some years ago went 64bit, apart from other speed improvements such as automatic database checks and tidying up. Evernote is essentially a piece of software cramped by its original concept.
  2. Classifying Evernote as filing cabinet when the max size for a single file is 200 MB is not what Evernote would want me belief. local German site by Evernote.com @DTLow are you not aware that your repeated efforts to distract user focus from note making to note storage as the primary task can be mistaken as your personal failure to accept reality? It is just so very plain to see that Evernote, understandably neglect video files as these file format types are not not consistent with the 200 MB limit.
  3. Well, I'm inclined to think that Evernote were involved at some time or other. At least one such occurrence took place in 2013 and what with all those management changes and other issues Evernote had to deal with maybe just a case of time bomb gone off?
  4. The first idea I thought of was trying out the Evernote mail clipper within Microsoft Outlook (I am sure it was still there recently but now it's gone. Maybe not yet compatible with Office 2019) Anybody still with Office 2016 or before could try clipping the original mail message. It might just be the answer for some.
  5. @PinkElephant the thing is that Google keeps track and notifies users whenever login to one of their services comes from a new device. Windows machines have unique fingerprints and so do Android devices. Microsoft logs and acts in the same fashion (OneDrive and OneNote) as Google. That's what data security is all about. So regardless from where and when an account is accessed Evernote should also fully monitor access by device (hardware print) and instanteously follow up with mail notifying a registered paid user about the unusual access to the account. One can very well assume that Evernote accounts were not searched by a single person or a group looking for passwords that might not have any real use to them or which could backfire if used. Bots searching for Crypto Mining seems a very plausible thing Too bad for the individuals affected and of course, they have the job of changing passwords and! depending on what other confidential data they stored. notifying banks, business partners, etc. *not-nice-at-all* says JohnL
  6. As far as I know Chromebooks would require the Android version of Evernote. Going by my experience on two Samsung Galaxies (S7 and S9) I can commiserate. These devices work very well as gps-supported car navigation systems but fail when it comes to Evernote. Opening an existing note may work but any alteration or addition is likely to fail, leaving a blank note. Contents wiped, gone! @gazumped no sane employer would lay off qualified staff for the sake of one year of consolidation and no company would ever admit to cash flow issues as the real cause for redundancies, In the case of Evernote last year financial analysts hinted at problems some time before it became known that Evernote had lost more than one or two executives. Evernote does have its place in my workflow but failing reliable accessability on the Androids and a long period of vagaries with its builds on Windows I changed sides. ,
  7. hello, Evernote got bigger and had more paid subscribers and yet in the autumn of last year had to get rid off staff because of lack of funds. The new CEO made no bones as far as immediate gaols are concerned. Maybe forum members such @DTLow know a lot more (pre-beta testing and such-like) but the ordinary user does not even get the identical product when it comes to operating systems. So, yes, indeed, the points raised by @Sugeeth Krishnamoorthy and many others can be dismissed ad infinitum or understood as urging Evernote to close the gap. *Are cosmetics such as icon change meaningful improvements?*
  8. Let me just say one thing - you do not understand how different Evernote staff seemingly work. Developers, programmers, call them what you will, do not need users to tell them about changes in the OS etc because they themselves are in the know. It is a normal part of their job life and vital to the smooth functioning of their own products. If Evernote had left their ivory tower habits long ago things would be a lot better. Or do you really expect page preview to be the equivalent to pdf export as it still is in the Win version of Evernote? As for myself I could not care less as to whether Outlook clipping to Evernote is responsive or not because of the usually less than pleasing output results and why report to Evernote something they should be able to experience on their own? If Mr Ian Small does his job well the overbearing excusing and definding mentality will no longer be needed. BTW, real doctors are not nearly so dumb or helpless when it comes to determining physical causes of pain. Doctors who rely solely on the patient's self-diagnosis, apart from stuff like simple colds and suchlike have no place in modern medicine.
  9. Me, too, can say that Outlook 365 (version 16.0.11231.20122), Win 10 1809 Build 17763.292) and Evernote currently 6.18 do not work well together. Beyond the lag the most worrying aspect to me is the rotten quality of notes through direct transfer from Outlook. @gazumped Outlook 365/2016 is part of the current Microsoft office suite, the standard office package used all over the globe. If Evernote have not got the means to pay for the annual subscription fee they should not even offer the add-on. Win 10 is the current OS and the only Win OS that Evernote needs to optimize for. Win 7 is in its final year of support and with hardware equipment well above Evernote and Win Office specs such lags have nothing to do with machines that are well maintained. Of course, third-party add-ons are at a disadvantage so to speak. The developers do need to keep upbreast with changes.. Nothing new in that trade. Why should users point to deficits that any developer could determine with minimum effort? A typical case, very recent was that one of the Evernote staff members was astounded to learn that an Evernote shortcut collided with a Win 10 shortcut. Whose fault? Mistakes do happen but the nerve to think Microsoft stole from Evernote is quite something. Not for one moment do I really believe that Outlook clipping carries much weight with Evernote.
  10. @DTLow Nice to learn what Evernote is withholding its users. I do not even want to know how easy or difficult implementation would be. The chance of Evernote cocking it up is a very likely scenario. However, as the topic is about granting third-party access to one's data I would say "do not ignore Google warnings" in such matters.
  11. latest Microsoft support info re keyboard shortcuts (sorry, cannot override .DE localization) status as per 2018-12-31. No, Microsoft did not hijack what Evernote thought was theirs, simply because the OS takes priority. Always. Perhaps it would be a good idea if Evernote finally got to grips with Windows.
  12. I wonder if Mr. Ian Small, the new CEO, is really aware of the on-going lack of basic quality control.
  13. Well-known issue, one of the arch problems this application suffers from and one that is certainly not related to hardware issues. All one can do is stop syncing at start-up. The Evernote server(s) are amongst the most sluggish and unresponsive of all data hosting servers one can come across these days. So, do not blame your machine, just hope for improvement. All the complaints of notes lost and so on point to transmitting errors due to server overload.
  14. @onatbas with all due respect and very much appreciating the kind thought but I certainly would never authenticate any script hosted by GoDaddy on an insecure website, registered in Turkey. Nothing personal, just a general concern.
  15. Evernote selbst unterhält in deutscher Sprache einen Blog https://evernote.com/blog/de/ (wird leider nicht ganz aktuell gehalten) Im übrigen empfehle ich dir https://www.deepl.com/translator Diese Seite https://evernote.com/intl/de/community kennst du sicher? Falls nicht, nütze die Chance und melde dich dort an. Letzten Endes bräuchte eine deutschsprachige (D-A-CH) Untergruppe einen kompetenten Helfer. Ansonsten - hope for the best, but take what comes.
