  1. Im using iPhone 13.1.3 and Mac OSX Mojave 10.14.5 OK thanks for the help. So I'm not really "blind" but the top-level (inviolable and upfront) pull-down for "recent" HAS been deleted. And a new (to me) circuitous route, that can easily become 'hidden' is offered for "experienced users". You can always (all too often now for Evernote) use Google for help, or wait for someone to offer help on the Evernforum. But if you want a simple app without googling for new workflow with every (groan) update, well that's "the old days"---- they're over. If you have gaps in your evernote usage, next time there will be an equal gap in your 'efficiency' too. So here it is: Go to pulldown VIEW >> Sidebar options >> Shortcuts. Verify that Shortcuts AND recents has a "checkmark" . The hierarchy suggests that "recents" will be listed in the sidebar but it's not intuitive. You have to ask on the forum (for example) Recents is a sub-folder under "shortcuts", that you have to expand Shortcuts to make (recents) visible. And if your sidebar is hidden, then this hidden route is one level deeper hidden. And thanks ALL for mentioning the "other places" that "recents" can be located. "Recents" was an efficient shortcut. You can tell I preferred recents to be in the top level pulldowns. For my usage - I need to be able to use Evernote efficiently without researching and re-learning all of the "upgrades". Some parts of the user-interface should remain "static" otherwise Evernote doesn't work for the seldom-users.
  2. Am I crazy? It seems like there was a pulldown shortcut called "recent notes". I can't find it anymore. Am I just blind, or has it been deleted? "Recent notes"should be an upfront option available in sidebars, upper main menus, everywhere someone might look for it. It's what you were last working on, it's a timesaver.
  3. OK thanks I didn't investigate that because reminders was the LAST thing on my mind. I just needed to find my notes, in a bad way. Thanks. Here's a pic of my travails. Hope it helps someone else (who's as dumb as me). I never used to have trouble using programs. Am I really getting that dumb or is program usability diminishing?
  4. I don't know what's happening. I have 13 notes in this notebook and can only get to one of them. It's NOT the one I need. I have an important task (to read some notes I wrote a couple years ago), and I cannot find the note I need to add to. Can anyone suggest what I'm doing wrong? ---->Note: the searchfield is blank/empty
  5. Thanks gazumped. Sounds like you don't open your Evernote many many times off-network? I do, that's why I need it so I have all my notes when I get back to network. Thanks for the "new window" tip. I looked for "new window" function under the "WINDOW" menu - it's not there. I found "New Evernote WIndow"under the "FILE" menu after your suggestion, THANKS, that helps a LOT. A TIP! -- RENAME your note before deleting it, because it's pretty easy to get confused and delete the WRONG one. I ended up deleting the "conflicting changes" notebook, which had my GOOD file in it but the DELETE file was outside in the regular notebooks. Easy mixup because Evernote doesn't change the names, or append "older". For example when you decide which note will be deleted, append "-old" to it (rename it to"projects-old" And rename the conflicts file too with "projects-old" in the name Anyway---- so can't do this comparison on the phone. And you won't know if your phone got on network for long enough to log a discrepancy, unless you LOOK for it. I dislike managing files for a computer,,,,computer should be doing this FOR YOU. But I'll try to learn it. Got part of it solved by the 'new evernote window' thing and for that I'm happy.
  6. I have this problem often. I am the only contributor. The problem occurs when I make changes 'off-network'. This makes me leery of writing notes when 'off-network' because it might generate a "conflicting changes" notification, that I must then evaluate, with no tools. There is no "comparision" helper (to select the valid version). So these "conflicting changes" pile up, and then they get stale and I can't recall which was valid. I very much appreciate that Evernote informs me of a conflict, but NOT providing a way for me to evaluate conflicts is a PROBLEM. If I have to make a change to a note "off network" I find myself doing only ONE change, then trying to remember NOT to make any more changes, because the system may generate a 3rd Conflict, of which I won't be able to tell which of the three is valid. If Sync then edits version one, then there could be valid changes in BOTH conflicts, right? I need to see them. I find myself going back to paper reminders because of the difficulty in evaluating 'conflicts'. The reason I GOT Evernote was to get away from paper notes. This is causing me to NOT USE my Evernote as often as I could. Other than this problem, Evernote has been FANTASTIC. Really a great app! This could be the ONLY problem but its bumming me out. :-) Sorry I hope this makes sense. Is there a method to evaluate/validate/delete conflicts from my phone that I'm unaware of? Can it be managed on the desktop?
