  1. Cheers @gazumped I haven't tried anything thus far. But will try to remove and reinstall web clipper chrome extension now... Nope, that did not do anything to clear cache. Am I suppose to restart Chrome or PC after remove/reinstall? If the above doesn't work, then will just live with it as is...cheers again edit Just cleared history/cache in my browser then restarted....but again old notebook titles still appear in the drop down/find field of the clipper... and given this EN install was only recent for me on theis new PC, then the reinstall wont do anything. Is there any other way you know of?
  2. I use Google Chrome as my browser Version 73.0.3683.75 (Official Build) (64-bit) and am on a Win10 PC, where i have EN desktop app version (308094) Public (CE Build ce-58.1.6897). Over the years of using EN, I have renamed, deleted, added Notebooks etc. However when I use the 'Find' search field from the clipper after clicking the drop down arrow, and then start entering the characters of the notebook i wish to clip to, I have on many occasions seen Old Notebook titles appear here. Is there a way to refresh the clipper such that it only displays current notebooks that actually exist??? Cheers
  3. An Even Better (and now seems obvious) idea ...cheers Actually, i think i did think about it, but was nervous at having 2 systems running simultaneously! Any issues with this?
  4. UPDATE... Since installing EN v6.16 onto my new laptop, using @gazumped process, I wanted to provide a review of the experience. From a Time perspective - It still took me a good 30 minutes to copy and paste the Old database folder (14 GB - 4,148 notes) and that was using a fast USB3 SanDisk Ultra flash-drive ...so not sure if just syncing files (downloading data) from the EN server with a fresh install would have been quicker or very much longer...so perhaps little time benefit!? From an Settings Accuracy perspective - I noticed that my Tool-bar icon-configurations were NOT maintained/copied across, including shortcuts in sidebar v toolbar (i had them in Toolbar). Plus the font settings reverted to default rather than the one I had selected on my Old previous laptop. Conclusion - Given I still had to check, and adjust things manually, In future when migrating/installing EN to a new PC, I will just use my normal system of fresh installing and reconfiguring the options/settings manually from some previously taken screen-caps. Cheers
  5. And just as an FYI to anyone that will follow this process...I'm copying the 'database' folder now to a USB, and my 'database' folder size for my EN is 14GB (I have approx 4,000 notes). So I had to use a large enough USB formatted using exFAT to accept this large folder/file size
  6. Just Googled it...and yes looks simple straight forward enough to Find & Export Press WIN+R (or use Windows Search Box bottom left) Type 'regedit' to open registry editor Select/highlight/click on the root folder 'computer' Do a CTRL+F to find 'evernote' Select the EN entry Go Menu>File>Export....all done...then import on new machine But this approach scares this layman too much if I ***** something up
  7. Thanks @gazumped ...this is great. I imagine the normal EN syncing process for a new PC/laptop, and having to download all data would be sped up greatly by simply overwriting as you say. Re step #5 Can you clarify... so I install the EN app on New Laptop then exit immediately...without giving it a chance to start syncing etc, is that right??? Re step #6... to overwrite I guess I once again need to know the location of the NEW database location, or should it be the same? Thanks a lot
  8. Cheers...Yeah I knew the data would be downloaded, wasn't sure about the EN app options/settings. No big deal to reconfigure manually, but becomes a pain when there are lots of different apps...so want to document best-practice for this/next time Also, I intend on keeping my Old Laptop as a spare, so I imagine I must also add my New Laptop/device to my one-of-5 (i think it is) allowed devices...right?
  9. I'm using EN (308094) Public (CE Build ce-58.1.6897) on my existing Laptop and both old and new use Windows Home. I found a post re where to find Older Versions of EN to Download (as I have read too many reports of the latest EN version 6.17 being too buggy) but sad I could not find a similar place on EN website....so anyway that's sorted. But when installing my current EN v6.16 onto my new Laptop-PC is there a way, or recommended process, to import/replicate all my EN options/settings? My current approach is to just screen-capture/or make short videos of each app i need to install on my new system....cheers
  10. Hey Jefito, only takes a second to drag-n-drop the text (or even to cut-n-paste it)...she's not perfect but removing the line-break uses less real estate, less scrolling, and views better on Android... so I'm happy to spend the short 1-sec time to do it 😉 No doubt this is a legacy from my OCD keeping neat notes at school thingy. so far this small workaround has worked over past 5 updates... or past year approx, but yeah hopefully EN can fix it one day, small thing though Appreciate the compliment 😃 from the Master 😉 Please don't! I/we need you xoxoxoxo 1st, I learned it's not what you know; it's who you know... then I realised it's actually both! But full disclosure I use to be Country manager for a Business intelligence App on top of SAP...me biased slightly towards presentation... crikey I find myself align to Trump...yikes Be really great if EN fixed these things...especially 1st and last points I just move the whole MS Word Doc to EN (I don't have much need these days to paste sections of a Word Doc), then delete it from my PC... then just open and edit the Doc from EN. If I don't delete the original on the PC, that Doc wont get edited, when editing the doc attached in EN, so get a mismatch of doc versions. Small issues flow from this approach though e.g. Word Doc Attachment in EN date/time of edit/update is NOT shown!... it just always just shows the date/time you 1st attached the Doc to EN. And the Ms Word Doc you attach should have been created using a latest version of MS-Word, else you may experience issues if editing it from other devices/platforms other than EN-for-Windows. But at least you get all the goodies of MS Word (navigation pane/formatting etc) and all held in EN... these again are just my own experiences thus far. And I too recall having similar issues with copy/paste Sections-of-a-MS-Word doc to EN. Do NOT Delete the top line! Just place cursor on that top-line position and type. doesn't matter if table is on first line of a new notes body, an existing note, or whatever. There has been the rare occasion where neither of my 2 workarounds work... in which case what I do is, still remove the line break, copy the whole line of text+table, then re-paste into a position a few lines above or below on the same note, and that has worked... in any case I have ALWAYS been able to remove that line-break, and have it retained through various EN updates etc Love you guys.... P.S. Even had to remove spaces from the text lines and quote boxes....hahahah
  11. I think you're talking about the extra line-break/spacing that EN adds above a table, and as distinct from the just larger spacing EN applies to a line of text that is placed directly above a table, (as per your image), and as compared to the regular reduced line-spacing EN applies between two lines of text. I too don't like this additional line-break added above a table. Someone once gave me a good techy explanation for it, but I can't remember. Also, how large/small/number of columns-rows/formatting etc of the Table has no impact on this line-break behaviour. In any case I have found 2-Workarounds to remove the additional line-break are: Add your Table 1st... Then place cursor directly above table, and enter your text If Text added 1st, followed by a Table, (EN inserts additional line) > Select/Highlight Text, and Drag to the line directly above the Table To check, sync and exit the Note, then come back in to see if it was saved
  12. How are you getting 'Dark Mode' for your EN for Windows app???
  13. EN acknowledged that the article might be a little misleading and so will look at revising it. They re-iterated that the person who shared it is the only one who can revoke access and thereby remove a shared note from the shared with me section. I think it would be nice if we the recipients had the ability to delete these notes the same way "WhatsApp" (messaging app) allows me to 'delete for me' messages received from others. Copy of EN reply attached below...
  14. I love EN 😍 (got to get that T-shirt made). It's absolutely central to everything I do online. It's rolled the once many apps I used in to one, in a similar way my smartphone has rolled the once many separate hardware devices I used in to one. And having it be accessible from anywhere, means I no longer worry (as much) about backing up my local PC based files, flexibility, etc, and for the most part EN has worked great for me. I was really thrilled by Ian Small blog post, especially the part about making EN consistent across platforms, so I entirely agree with what Gazumped said. I mean it's great their transparent about their Big Picture Plans for 2019 "The Talk"... but at some point that must translate into action... into a list of "Inconsistencies" (as per CalS below) across devices that they've identified, leading to a prioritised-list of what will get done first and by when... When their also transparent about that list, the 2019 action plan, perhaps the cynic in me and others I've read in this post ("heard it before"), will start to have more faith, now that we can see rubber actually hitting the road "The Walk" Show us the detailed NEXT STEPS, the EN 2019 Prioritised-List of Tasks Action Plan Mr Small
  15. The answer from EverNote Support is YOU CAN'T DELETE THEM! You have to ask the person who shared the note with you, to revoke access...and I quote EN: " you don't have an access to delete the notes that is shared with you by others. The only option is to contact the person who owns that note and ask them to remove your access to the note " See attached screen-shot of the EN-Support email-reply to my support ticket for their full answer. Also attached is the image referred to...or link here EDIT: I just did a little more research on EN Help & learning pages re Work Chat Shared Notes and found some info that IMHO seems to contradict what they're saying so I have just replied to above ticket with a further question see attached. Will update once i get a response.
  16. Did that...didn't work When I right-click the notebook "workchat notes" in the "Shared with Me" folder from left panel - nothing, no menu appears, so no option to delete the 'notebook' When I right click the visible note from the middle Note-list panel...there is a menu on right-click BUT not option to 'delete' The only options to delete are, and with the note selected... 1) the delete icon in the tool-bar top-right... and 2) From the main Menu > Edit > delete. But again nothing! Failed to delete!? and again did the sign-out sign-in thing... whats the issue you think? Also does the left-panel shared with me disappear if there's nothing in it? cheers
  17. WORKAROUND FOUND!!! 😀 Dabbled with this before, but couldn't get across the line, so i tried it again just now and yeah you're right it works great, now adopted, cheers. Shame I can't drag a Tag from the picker box straight to the note as I can with normal Tags displayed in Left Panel YOU CAN DRAG THE TAG FROM THE TAG PICKER/SEARCH BOX THINGY (OR TAG LIST IN LEFT PANEL)! AND YES THE LEFT-PANEL SEARCH FEATURE DOES LOOK FOR THE CHARACTERS ANYWHERE IN THE TAG-LABEL - UNLIKE THE PREFIX ONLY SEARCH IN THE TAG FIELD ABOVE THE NOTE-BODY You just have to drag the Tag to the Notes Tag-Field - NOT - the Note-Body, yippee. So solution is: IF - LEFT PANEL EXPANDED ALT+F2 -or- Click Magnifying Glass icon next to 'Tags' menu option - to open search box Find Tag (search using a few characters, or can scroll through list) Left Click the Tag, while holding down left-mouse button drag to the Note Tag-Field IF - LEFT PANEL COLLAPSED (EASIEST IMHO) ALT+F2 -or- just click Tag icon Find Tag (search using a few characters, or can scroll through list) Left Click the Tag, while holding down left-mouse button drag to the Note Tag-Field -OR- even simpler Just do a CTRL+Q from anywhere/anytime and presto... thanks @gustavgi
  18. Hi Gazumed...I know in advance the Tag I want to add, and in the case of my multi-word Evernote Tags, (I have 60)...I normally just type 'eve' in to the tag field then use the scroll bar to find the tag to add... Think this just comes down to what you know v what you don't, and past decisions made based on this. But I do want a clean/organised Tag-View Screen... again I'm a very visual, OCD, hierarchical person. But always willing to change. e.g an image you shared on a post the other day re using List-View (with date clums 1st) ...well I now went from snippet view to List view...with 'Title' being the only column visible, I was like "why do i need thumbnails", BIG improvement. Great Tip... and added to my source info repository on EN Tags, cheers Dabbled with this before, but couldn't get across the line, so i tried it again just now and yeah you're right it works great, now adopted, cheers. Shame I can't drag a Tag from the picker box straight to the note as I can with normal Tags displayed in Left Panel Another nugget, cheers... yeah Alt F2 worked...awesome Hey Jefito, yes please do mate, cheers So maybe the 'Priorities for 2019' message from the new CEO, on the EN Blog, re making all things "more coherent, more consistent across platforms" will result in this tiny thing added to the list. Thank you all
  19. I'm using EN-for-Windows, version (308094) Public (CE Build ce-58.1.6897). When using EN Web Clipper in Google Chrome on Windows PC, It's easy to find an existing Tag (or Notebook) to add to a new clipping/note. Just start entering some letters/characters and EN Clipper shows/suggests Tags where those letters appear, regardless if the letters appear at the beginning (prefix), middle (infix) or end of the Tag. BUT, in En-for-Windows when I go to add a new Tag to a Newly created or Existing Note (in the Tag-Field, above the Note-Body), this same functionality is NOT provided. EN only shows Tags where the letters entered appear at the beginning or prefix... which would be okay if I used just single word Tags, but in my case I tend to use multi-word Tags e.g. Evernote/Tags/iPad So if I entered 'ipa' into the web clipper, looking for the above Tag, EN-Clipper would show/suggest the above Tag that could then be chosen... but not so on EN-for-Windows... at least AFAIK? Attached images shows the difference. This seems really strange that EN don't provide the same function on the main App but it's available on the Clipper...or perhaps I'm missing something or not using it right Anyone else see or experience this, or know how to fix/workarounds etc?
  20. Yeah I've noticed the 'remember view settings' right-click menu option appears when a specific Notebook, Tag, and/or Saved Search is selected. I can see the saved view settings effect on an individual Notebook or Saved Searches, as evidenced by the highlighted tick that later appears to the left of the 'remember view settings' menu option.... But this does not happen when doing the same thing on the Tags View screen, but it does when selecting Tags from the Left Panel !!! Can't figure it out... EDIT...ok I got it it just doesnt work from Tags selected within the Tags View Screen...ahh the simple things
  21. Before ...it didn't for me, just the prefix After doing as quoted above, the tag-picker, left panel search now does 'infix' as you say perfectly...yeehah. And now I have a way of searching without making mess of the Tag Hierarchies in the Tags View screen... many thanks 😊 Finally do you @jefito or @CalS or @gazumped or @DTLow or anyone know/have an answer re...quoted below
  22. That's the one! Needs to be disabled/un-checked to prevent the Tags expanding in the left-panel
  23. I just noticed the little search magnifying-glass icon to the right of the 'Tags' label/button (next to the '+' icon), in the Left Panel. I gave it a shot at searching, and to my surprise it did not result in expanding all the Tag Hierarchies as discussed above, great. But... the difference with this search function, is that with each letter entered into this search field, EN only looks for these letters when/where they occur at the BEGINNING of your Tags Labels... as opposed to to the finding the letters ANYWHERE in the Tag Label when using the Tag-Search field on the Tags-View screen!!! Can't figure why they would make this different?
  24. That's what I thought was happening for you... if it's a mystery for @jefito then this is gonna be a tough one... maybe @gazumped @CalS can also weigh in as these guys are awesome. I tried again, played with some options, but couldn't get mine to do as your does, strange
  25. I believe @justacat is having a similar issue to mine, see here. I think he/she is referring to the search-field-box that appears on the Tags-View screen, as distinct from, or different to, the standard Notes-Search field/box seen at the top of the column with 'Note List' enabled (F11), or as seen on Quick Search accessed via CTRL+Q. IF he/she was talking about a standard 'tag:whatever" search in the standard Notes Search then I too am NOT experiencing the issue as described.
