  1. I have had this happen a few times in the past and have documented the process to fix, based on EN Support feedback and from other users on this forum...here's a copy. Sometimes the issue might just be that EN Servers are down for maintenance. If Not, You Need to Identify Your Unsynced Notes so you can fix them. So, If seeing "!" on your end, use these methods/steps to reveal any unsynced notes: FIND UNSYNCED NOTES - METHOD 1 Click 'All Notes' from Left Panel Press/Hold the CTRL key & Then Click on the Sync icon from the Toolbar menu. This should display the notes that are the issue. You can then modify/work with them to get them to sync. FIND UNSYNCED NOTES - METHOD 2 Select the Note List View Icon and select Top List or Side List At the top of the note list, Select the Sort Icon > Sort notes by > Sync Unsynced notes will be listed with a dot displayed in the Sync column FIX IDENTIFIED NOTES - METHOD After that you're able to see the unsynced notes, please follow the steps below. Copy and paste the content out of the referenced note into a new note Delete the referenced note Go to your 'Trash' notebook at the bottom of your notebooks list and delete the note from there so it's entirely removed from your account Sync Evernote Attachments: Unsynced - 1.png | Unsynced - 2.png
  2. @CalS You probably already know about this, but FYI, I accidentally discovered a keyboard shortcut (in addition to mouse one click action) to access Toolbar shortcuts. Simply hit CTRL key plus a number/digit, so... CTRL+1 (to open 1st shortcut), CTRL+2 (to open 2nd shortcut) etc... But with 15, or in my case 17 shortcuts, would prob need to add a number label/prefix to the toolbar shortcut to make using the keyboard shortcuts easy (that was a mouthful). As it is, I only use a few keyboard shortcuts currently for 'New Note', 'On demand Sync' etc...cheers
  3. Hi @Pixelpops I had the same issue last year, and discovered the solution...see thread here
  4. Yep that did the trick, thanks very much. Whilst waiting for your reply i also tried shortening my full name online via profile settings, which partially did the trick. I'm liking the extra room now provided in the toolbar that allows for more shortcuts...cheers
  5. Hey @CalS How is it the 'User' drop-down on the menu bar doesn't also show your name, how do you make that happen? Mine currently shows my Full Name to the right of the user-icon.
  6. In the above screen-shot example, you can see I have a couple of links in the first paragraph, then lots of links/linked-text, one after the other on the next four lines. If you highlight all the text as shown, then right-click, there is NO option to 'remove' the links. If you highlight just the 4 lines that contain consecutive links, then right-click, now the 'remove' option yes is available, but EN will literally only remove the link on the text immediately below the cursor. So if you wanted to remove all links, You would have to remove one-by-one, or copy paste into another app like MS-Word, or Notepad, in order to remove the links then paste back Yeah that works great in MS Word... was hoping could be done in EN. Cheers anyway Well not a biggy, as I only need it from time to time, thanks
  7. Some years ago I asked the question about the ability to bulk spell-check all contents of a note, or selected content within the note, but that wasn't doable, with the only solution being a copy paste to an external doc such as MS Word, perform the spell check, then re-paste back to EN. I'm hoping my question today will meet with somebody's better solution. Occasionally, I need to paste large chunks of text into an EN Note from a webpage, whilst retaining the text/fonts formatting. A lot of the time a contents table of sorts with line after line of linked text is pasted across as well, or even when the article is randomly peppered with links...and it's these many random links I'd like to remove in one click so to speak. The issue is NOT being able to highlight a section of text, right click, and select 'remove' to remove links. EN ends up only allowing the removal of 1x linked text! I note it doesn't matter if the the links are external hyperlinks or internal in-app EN links, the result is the same. Anyone know how to do this in EN???
  8. huh... great that you figured this out. I don't know how, why, or even when this happened, but in any case, having this scenario works to remove the issue of the new note window for reasons you seem to understand better than me. I wonder if the 2nd type of add-on, the one added directly to the email account, could be added to each and every one of my individual email accounts added inside MS Outlook...that would be awesome. edit* and when you say re 2nd add-on, that it is added to email account directly...are you saying added via the webmail interface, the web app for the Outlook email account in question, or any mail account for that matter? just answered my own question by accessing Outlook-web, via a link on Outlook-windows in "Manage Add-ins". Outlook-web does indeed show that I added the EN Add-on... vs The EN add-on for MS-Outlook-Windows client...where it actually shows the add-on is disabled, even though it still works! got to figure this out, but thanks very much for the info @Faisal Malallah
  9. I think I may have found a work-around! @gazumped @Faisal Malallah This is another of my 2-step shuffle solutions, but, it works! In MS-Outlook-Windows, I have 5 email accounts added, of which one is my default xxx@outlook.com email account, and that I rarely use. However if you... ... drag emails from other email accounts into your default xxx@outlook.com email account/inbox, then use the green coloured Save-to-EN icon, not only does the interface look more user friendly, and provide more options, it now does NOT CREATE A NEW EN NOTE WINDOW once the save is complete...NICE! Below is an screenshot of the reply email I sent to EN-Support that explains it more clearly, and asks for answers...which again I will provide once they get back to me. ////////////////////////////// EMAIL COPY ///////////////////// Hi Christian, Thanks for your full reply. Please be aware that this issue ONLY happens for/when using email accounts that are NOT ‘Outlook.com’ email accounts, e.g. xxxx@yahoo.com, or xxx@gmail.com etc. I am using MS Outlook-Windows, installed on my Win10 PC (as part of an Office 365 subscription), and NOT using ‘Outlook-Web’, or ‘Outlook-for-Android’ Apps etc. MS Outlook installed on my PC acts as my Email Client, or central bucket, where all my email accounts feed in to. Here are the 5 email accounts I have added to MS-Outlook-Windows…notice I have just the 1 ‘outlook.com’ email account. Now, when I use/access my xxx@outlook.com email account, in MS Outlook, which is one of 5 I have added to MS Outlook, the first thing of note is the existence of 2x ‘Save to EN’ icons appearing on the menu bar! One is grey, and the other is green in colour. On all other Email accounts only the one grey-colour EN icon appears. So IMHO it appears that Outlook is integrating more fully with the add-on, than when using other account vs when using my xxx@yahoo.com.au account (see below - NOTICE JUST 1 EN ICON) So… Question 1) Why do I have 2 ‘Save-to-Evernote’ icons when using Outlook email? Question 2) How come when clipping/saving to EN form my Outlook.com email account the interface is different versus other email accounts? …and the issue of a NEW EN Note Window does not exist!? Here’s how the interface looks when using my xxx@outlook.com email account in MS Outlook and then clipping/saving an email to EN Here’s how the interface looks when using my xxx@anyotheremail.com email account in MS Outlook and then clipping/saving an email to EN Many Thanks
  10. ...Here's the reply from EN Support about this issue, today Jan 21, 2020. They confirmed this is just how things are and maybe one-day they will get to it!
  11. I have just got so used to closing these "MS Outlook saved to a New EN-Window" function, that I never thought to ask if this behaviour could be configured to prevent it from happening. I just went through the EN-Windows Tools>Options settings and could find nothing about the MS Outlook Add-on ...however there is section about configuring the EN-Clipper! This would save a lot of work for me by having EN not open a new window so if this is a feature request - I will be the 1st to vote for it. If this is something that can be changed/configured in either MS Outlook or EN-Windows, then if anyone knows how please let us know. Thanks for asking about this @Faisal Malallah . I will also raise a support request about this and let you know.
  12. wow...the day has finally come when the student has taught the teacher a thing or two, ok, maybe just one...lol...but I'm feelin pretty good now Ricky Bobby 😉 And ditto re new-note-window opening in the background. I too recall a bug like this back about a year ago, that seemed to clear itself after an update
  13. I know the feeling...it's so annoying when these bugs come up and it doesn't appear to happen for others...unless someone else here has the answer you might want to check in with EN Support...and would be good to hear the solution if you find one.
  14. Try using CTRL+N instead of CTRL+ALT+N On EN-Windows, at least on my version 6.18.4, using CTRL+ALT+N will always create a new note inside your 'default' notebook. But most of the time I just want a New Note to be created within the Notebook that I am working on, hence why I use CTRL+N ... and in my case the new note is NOT set to 'create new note in a new window' but even when I turn this on, the new window does open on top of the EN main window, and not in the background as is the issue you're experiencing. So perhaps also try testing with this option turned Off and On You can change the default notebook via File Menu: Tools >Options >General ...hope it works for you
  15. METHOD 2 Consider the above post, my Method 1. The issue with Method 1 is having to create a 2nd Note to paste the contents to, which then necessitates that you also have to go the extra steps of copy/pasting the Note Title and URL...so just takes too long. Here's the much easier, new and improved way to do this...and it looks really great now. EN-Clip your webpage using 'Simplified Article' (Google Chrome or Firefox Extension) Sync EN, and Open the newly created Note Highlight & Copy Note contents (don't use CTRL+A) position cursor or drag/highlight from 1st character to last character of the note contents, then CTRL+C (to copy contents) CTRL+A (to select all Contents) > Press Delete to remove all contents...you should now see a brand new note window with the top line offering to use a template CTRL+V (to paste contents) ...END So much easier and faster, and works great...cheers
