  1. @Pink Elephant occasionally I too fell foul of the "no content but perfect preview " note syndrome (Windows 10, Google Chrome, Evernote Legacy Build). FYI - Evernote never bothered to address this issue which certainly is not cured by restarting the application. What didn't get stored in the proper Windows app format simply can't be retrieved!
  2. @DTLow I can only suppose that you had no inkling of what was to come. But don't you, on reflection regret brushing aside the umpteen issues users complained about over time? Unless Evernote literally scrap what they proudly call the new Evernote here and now there is no hope. Whoever decided on revamping Evernote based on Electron had no idea. You just got to look around what kind of known applications are Electron based to appreciate the situation. Speak up now and make them come to their senses whilst there is still a chance.
  3. OT, just for the record, Lightroom does not lock in, ever heard of xmp sidecars? Ever heard of the free Adobe DNG converter? Could it be that the Lightroom learning curve was just a little too steep for you?
  4. Yes, half the year is over and who in her/his mind would want to work for a company that cannot make up its mind what the only product in the portfolio is really meant for. Is is digital asset management for long-term storage or just another notetaking app or indeed the early garage release of an all-purpose tool which in 10 years or so of its existence has not gone far enough to inspire much hope with normal users. Evernote failed to meet business requirements. The stupid arrogance from the character who got kicked out by Google certainly made sure of that. I lost a few notes in
  5. @TheMagicWombat quite frankly my albeit limited insight into the world of advertising and branding fails to associate computer software with anything beyond logos in terms of keeping to original concepts. Perhaps things are somewhat different over your side of the Big Pond but over here Coke is just not the drink any more. However The Coca-Cola Company sells other drinks, some orientated towards health-conscious consumers thus retaining its market share. How does all that relate to Evernote with that one and only product? Going by my experience with Evernote and software in
  6. Luckily Evernote never ventured beyond that one single piece of software. However, the new kid on the block (no insult intended @Ian Small ☺️) rekindled hope for Evernote's future. Who is to say that the universally accepted system of \ root \ folders \ subfolders \ etc. will not make its way into Evernote? In fact, Evernote has no other option, technically speaking.
  7. @PinkElephant are you really well versed with the Windows OS? To kill a memory hog (I have known Evernote to behave like that) you do not need to reboot. Killing the task in task manager should do. Network attached systems do not speed up Windows, also have no impact on Windows updates/upgrades. Your Win PC configuration seems sound for most tasks, but an office kind of application such as Evernote should display an existing 20 odd page document page smoothly even on a lesser grade machine. Regardless of configuration, Evernote on Windows can use RAM in excess, with little load on
  8. @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
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. @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 ass
  13. 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 th
  14. 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 su
  15. 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 le
