  1. Small correction: I used to move my private stuff into Evernote Local Notebooks. Going forward, I will use the Apple Mail local Mailboxes, like I used to in the days when I was not an Evernote user.
  2. Not at all. I always move private emails, documents, ... over to my Mac i.e. off the Apple and Google Ecosystems. Now, if Apple Mail and Finder, behind the scenes, share my private stuff with Apple then that's another story. Can you imagine what will happen to the Apple share price if that is the case! Please see this Apple doc: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/guide/mail/mlhlp1021/mac#:~:text=In the Mail app on,them only on this computer.
  3. Good bye Evernote; hello Gmail / Apple Mail as my new digital filing cabinet. Sad day 😕
  4. Documents : store as attachments to email. If I need to update a document (Word, Excel) then edit and reply to the same email with the updated copy. A nice side effect of this is that I automatically get the old versions of the document in the the same email thread. Notes : pretty much the same approach as Documents. Additonal benefits from GMail: Snooze an email (= EN Reminder) Use the powerful GMail filters to automatically label my incoming work/stuff Email stuff to myself and have GMail automatically label them for me A useful GMail feature that is great for
  5. By the way, I found an excellent replacement for the Evernote Web Clipper: the Safari browser. Browse to a web page and click Command I (or use the Share Menu and then Email) and you will get a copy of the page (just like the EN Web Clipper) in the body of an email that you can then email (to your digital filing cabinet). I wish I didn't have to switch away from Evernote, but at least I have found a reasonable workaround which others may find useful also.
  6. For those who are intersted, I am moving my digital filing cabinet out of Evernote into Apple Mail connected to GMail because: Emails that I am happy to be on the cloud can stay on GMail Private emails get moved to a local mailbox on my Mac I can use the GMail labels (= tags) to tag emails GMail labels can be colour coded which is great I can find things using the excellent GMail and/or Apple Mail search
  7. DTLow : that approach works for tags but it doesn't find text within the document. e.g. every now and then I need to search for someone I have paid money to. I just go to Evernote and search for: tag:bank tag:statement "john smith" Correct me if I am wrong, but I wouldn't be able to do this using your approach if my statement (PDF) is outside Evernote.
  8. Call me a cynic, but I wonder if this decision has to do with Data Mining. These days it is almost impossible to know who is doing what with your data on the web, and more importantly who - including Evernote - is making money from it. As we Brits says, "if ain't broke don't fix it". I can't imagine local notebooks gave Evernote many issues. I have happily used them for many years.
  9. DTLOW : If I move my files out of Evernote and use links to them then I won't be able to take advantage of Evernote search + tags. I solely rely on tags for my filing. gazumped : Sadly, I think you are right. I have only 7 notebooks but hundreds of tags. I rely on Evernote tagging for everything. I love tags because I remember things by what I associated the thing with, and not the folder/hierarchy I put the thing in. I don't know if Evernote staff are going to reply or not. I am already searching for an Evernote replacement as loss of Local Notebooks has simply destroyed my workflow
  10. I am a long term premium user and shocked that Evernote have taken away Local Notebooks. I am shocked because Evernote seems to think that I will be happy to put my tax returns, banks statements, and nearly 3000 other private notes on the cloud! I have 2FA, but being a former software engineer myself, forgive me if I don't buy into Evernote's claim that my notes will be safe on the cloud. Question: What does Evernote think people like me are to do with our private notes? I still need them in Evernote because I want to be able to use the excellent tagging feature. If the answer

So, sticking with the subject of this thread, please don't muddy the water with offline notebooks which do not provide the privacy that local notebooks offer. Question: What does Evernote think
  12. For me it boils down to this: I could use a web browser that doesn't support multiple tabs, but given the choice, I would always pick the ones that offer tabs (and multiple windows).
  13. Didn't think about Evernote code being old! I am not familiar with Evernote release history (I have only been using Evernote since 2013), but I am familiar with the rather daunting task of having to decide (and convince sponsors) that a code base needs a total rewrite. Microsoft re-wrote Windows code at least twice and it didn't get it right every time (e.g. Vista). So, I can only guess that Evernote for OSX is newer (?) which is why, IMHO, it is a superior version of the desktop version. I guess I will have to continue using my MacBook only because of Evernote! At least it means I g
  14. Thank you for correct explanation of what I was trying to say Jefito. In the OSX version, you can open as many main Evernote windows as you like and this feature is critical for my workflow and productivity.
