    This is a limitation of the enex export; it does not include notebook details    
    To preserve notebook assignment, use separate exports for each notebook   
    Also, The export does not include note-id   
    The import creates new notes

    The best practice is to simply log into your account   
    The sync process will restore your local notes database from the server (except for Local Notebooks)

    It's too bad the exported/imported file doesn't include the notebooks details and note-IDs. Export notebooks could be a good idea to import one by one instead of a mixed confusing single file.

    After this experience, I agree with live sync to restore the notes. It's a better than .enex method for me. Fortunately, my notes are simple, light notes of webpages, not media like audio or video, and didn't take too much, even with my low-speed connection!

    You have to export and import by notebook for this to work.  Mostly useful as a backup, particularly for local notebooks in the legacy version.  Can be used for a fresh start but download is safer, even if it does take longer.

    Yes, download and sync is safer and better.

  2. Hi

    I had to reinstall my Windows OS. Before that, exported all my notes into a .enex file (about 700 MB / 2500 notes). Now in the fresh Windows, I installed Evernote and while disconnected the internet, imported the .enex file of all my notes. It imported successfully, but it just a single file of all notes, without the notebooks that I named, it's a mixed single file of all notes that many of them are unrelated to each other and need to be tidy and classified! That’s the disappointing importing process and why Evernote did like this and why it didn’t keep my notebooks (with their names like before) and its notes inside them? It seems I should select notes one by one and create the notebooks from scratch and send the related notes to specific own notebooks.

    Another horrible thing is, when I start to sync, Evernote brings back the notebooks that I need and also their notes from cloud service, and it doesn’t care about the imported .enex file and that is completely useless and now I post my question here, Evernote syncing to get all notebooks and own notes. 

    So export/import function for me is useless, I thought after importing function, Evernote won't download the notes from the cloud service, because I have them all, just sync to see what things have changed:

    1- I expect in export/import function, Evernote keeps my named notebooks with notes inside them and recovers them as they showed before reinstalling Windows, not a mixed single file that needs to rearrange from scratch to their own notebooks.

    2- And when start to connect and sync, Evernote recognizes the notes and doesn’t import them again. Just sync the difference and changes.

    I’m a free plan user – Evernote 6.24.2 on Windows 10.


  3. Hi,

    (Updated Evernote on Windows 10)

    I created a note and change the direction of a paragraph to right for Persian Languages that written from right to left. It's okay, but when I want to have lines with numbers (inserted manually or automatic numbered list), the number goes to the end of lines, instead of placed in the first of line where I start to write my letters after numbers and the periods that must be placed at the end of a sentence; goes to the first of lines. 
    Does Evernote need to improve for the right to left languages to fix these problems or there's a hidden feature or trick that I don't know?

    I expect Evernote behaves like MS Word or any standard word processors in these situations, so I can write a note smoothly and fast in action. But as I see I can't write my notes in number modes correctly.

    Basically yes - although you're 'sure' that there are some pages with content in common,  you can't rule out the possibility that Clipper doesn't agree. If you have two identical notes and the first doesn't pop up when you clip the second version,  you can verify that there's an issue.

    As you said, I clipped a page twice and still, the problem remains. The clipper window can't find the first version of these duplicate to show in its window and just shows "no result" again!

    Hi.  Have you tried checking the Clipper settings? IIRC the options to search for similar notes are set there...  and have you tried clipping the exact same section of the page a couple of times to confirm whether you are correct that you already have similar notes...

    Hi. Yes, the "Show Evernote content related to my web searches" option is on. Do you mean I should try and clip a page twice to see the similarity in the second time? When everything was okay in the previous days that I told, related notes section found the pages that have in common points, not the exact context. While I'm sure some pages that I clip have similarities, but the window can't find and show them for me.

  6. Hi,

    Recently, whenever I clip every page of a specific website, no related pages find in web clipper window and just show "No result" as you see in below screenshot! about two weeks ago, everything was fine and okay, but see this issue in recent days and don't know why? reinstall the clipper extension in Chrome browser and didn't fix my issue to help me. Also try with another browser (new version of Edge), but nothing has changed. Chrome is up-to-date. Clipping process is fine and save those pages I want and sync is okay between devices (PC and cell), but just want to know why the clipper window doesn't show any related notes, while I'm sure some pages and topics that I saved/clipped before have similarity with my new pages and topics.

    I tried the first link, seems to be fine with me (Brave Dev).  Clip saved afert I pressed Save clip.  You might trying removing and readding clipper to the browsers.  Last suggestion would be the old standard of reboot the PC.  Not sure it is clipper or something else that is causing the issue.  Sorry.



    I did, nothing has changed and the error still remains!

    Do other web pages clip okay?  I can clip okay with all the browsers, Windows 10 Pro.   Any other changes to your device since it last worked?

    Actually no, I tried below pages on Chrome, Firefox, and Brave, all of them failed to clip these pages. 

    My OS is Windows 10. The last time I clipped a page was about 5 months ago until now I see this weird error that prevents me to clip a page. IE isn't giving me a clean result. When I back and check a clipped page on the Android version on my cell phone, the lines are mixed together and can't be read easily or not fit with the screen phone and need to move a page to left and right. It seems clipped by OneNote.

    May not help, but I switched from Chrome to Brave Dev as my prime browser a few months back.  Have not had any issues, though Dev by definition is a Beta.  YMMV.



    I installed Brave Dev and tried to clip a page, but the same error happens in this browser again! Why? if this error is a bug? if yes, why hasn't fixed yet? Chrome, Firefox, and Brave Dev failed to clip, IE's result is not clean and neat. 

  10. Hi

    I haven't clipped pages for an almost long time and today I need to clip some pages again. But the clipper can't clip and shows "Can not connect to server" error! I tried many times and tired and disappointed with this behavior. I tried it on Chrome and most of the time I prefer to clip pages from Chrome than other browsers. IE could clip, but the result was a little different from Chrome and the page I clipped was broader than I expected! and I'm not satisfied with it. Firefox is very slow on my machine. Anyway, Chrome was great before and don't know why the clipper can't clip my pages and show the error. I tried via VPN on and off, but the result is same. The version of the Clipper: - Chrome version:  70.0.3538.102 (Official Build) (64-bit).





  11. Hello

    If I capture a web page with just one image in its title, Evernoter chooses/shows the image as a preview image in my notes, like this page: Whatever happened to what's-his-name? (It's okay).

    But when I capture a web pages with many images like this Highlighter Pens: A Comprehensive Guide, Evernote doesn't choose and show its title image for its note in Notebook and pick another picture from the page for its preview / thumbnail image in its note! (it's not cool for me). 

    How could I force Evernote to uses just title image of a web page for preview / thumbnail image in notes?

    Hmmn.  That's very odd.  I'd suggest you try uninstalling and restart/ reinstalling the Android app - which is about as much teching as is possible with a mobile client - and if the blue underline still persists,  raise it with support.  It may be something to do with Snagit cropping a link to the original image,  or maybe Evernote takes text under an image as being a caption..  it really needs a developer to take a look at the source for the note and find out why Android dislikes it so much..

    I'd suggest you raise it with support or send a message on twitter (see top of page).

    Those possibilities you mentioned can be caused this problem with thsoe specefic notes, I'll try uninstall/install it and this time crop image with another program except Snagit to see what will happen. If it won't work, I'll explain and ask the support.

    Hi.  Have you tried Simplify (or Remove) Formatting on your note?  It's possible that the clip brought across some embedded code that the Android thinks is a link...

    Yes, I tried both functions on the body texts, but didn't work and didn't solve the unexpeted hyperlinks. I clip the essays of that website in "Simplifed Article" method. Then I crop an image related to that essay with another program like Snagit, save and paste it in the begining of the note into Evernote, Fianlly, bold the first letters of each paragraph to recognize and see better for reading. This is just I do it; no more thing, but I don't know why the body texts change into links in Android, not Windows version. 

    Note: If I clip a essay and don't touch it (like inserting and pasting an image in the begining of a note, and bolding first letters of each paragraphs) nothing changes and everything is okay.

  14. Hi there



    This problem has happened recently in my Android version, especially for a website that I love its articles! (Aeon.co). I clip some its pages, when I check them in Windows version after I clipping, everything is okay as I expected, while I sync and check them in Android version, most body texts turn into links, while they are not link originally and they're just simple text. I confused why it happens and just can see in Android's Evernote version?! 



    Fortunately, I don't have this issue for the other web pages for the other websites.

    Both Android and Windows versions updated to last version













    (Question is about Evernote's PC version)

    Imagine, I’m going to change a headline, add a few tags or so on, but I think I’ve changed or deleted a word, line or even a paragraph by chance by myself!, and I don’t know what was it and where section exactly has changed, removed or edited. Also this scenario can be happen by chance, like when I left the room and somebody like a child want to play with the computer and do it without they're aware of what they're doing to my job!

    How can I lock my body text/article while I edit its headline, add tags, or do something else on a note to prevent any human error on my text? I know “Encrypt selected text…” feature in right-click menu, but it hides text, I want visible text but can’t be edit / change by chance. In Adobe InDesign software, you can lock a text box to avoid changing its text accidentally, I’m looking for something like that in Evernote! J


  16. Hi

    How many notes can I create in a Notebook folder as a Basic user?  Statues bar of Evernote (PC) shows me 91 of 149 (until now I add my notes and writeting this message here!). My speed is 256kb! and seems is not a good idea to put all notes in a Notebook. Guess I will be face with some problem like slowness. I think I'd better create some Notebooks and divide my notes among them. (my notes are web pages mostly). Is it a good plan to reserve a Notebook for just 50 web pages? (each web page are 2 pages on A4 paper, not too long).

    Thank you

    There is no limit to the total space used by an Evernote account.

    Limits only apply to the amount uploaded each month,

    So yes, you can add 60mb each month


    You mean I can just upload 60 MB each month, not more than this amount? let's guess I won't upload anything for 3 months, and got 60 MB for each month, after 3 months, I have 180 MB space on my free account. Can I upload e.g 100 MB in a month or I still have limit to 60 MB?
