  1. This happened to me when I was using the Web version. I was in a detailed offsite seminar, using a new Windows laptop (on which I had not had a chance to install the Evernote program locally), taking copious notes, and during the afternoon session I kept experiencing the error mentioned. I kept losing pieces of what I had entered. After a while I noticed that multiple versions of the note had been spawned through this process, and I ended up with four different versions. I couldn't take the time to evaluate which note, if any, contained the complete set of info, so I quickly opted to download the application and start up with whatever I could select as "the note," and carry on from there. This worked. I had no trouble when using the installed program, and it seemed to sync ok and save my content in that particular note. I was then able to come back to the office later and painstakingly do a side-by-side comparison among these four notes to make sure I assembled one note that contained all the content. Not sure if there was anything lost in this process, but I think I have everything. I assume the issue was an intermittent wifi glitch, but man, that's stressful. No one likes seeing their work literally disappear before their eyes! I don't think I'm ever going to use the web app again for anything but a one-shot note. Too much at risk. If the application itself remains stable as it seemed, I'll just make sure I put that on whatever computer I'm using first, and then go about my business from there. (And by the way, "merge notes", to me, does not mean the same as "append notes." Putting the four notes together one after the other in one note was not what I expected when I chose the option to "Merge notes!")
  2. I appreciate your reply! And I thought of what you said here just after I posted my comment. That being said, I did find elsewhere in the Forums a link to 7.2.3 which that user (I believe an employee) said worked with El Cap. I downloaded it, and I concur: 7.2.3 has been working for me (for a day anyway!) with no problems on this installation of El Capitan. Still, while I understand what you're saying about there being ways to find it, and the possible "liability" perhaps that might be implied, I can tell you that other software vendors, like Intuit, make available earlier versions of QuickBooks that were at the time compatible with specific operating system versions, and they pretty much are able to leave it at that. It could be a message like, "This software worked with that OS in 2014, and you're welcome to download it and use it, at your own risk. No support is or will be available." That's not a literal quote from anybody's website, but a way to handle it. Anyway I'm not gonna beat a dead horse. 7.2.3 works with El Capitan, I now have it and can confirm that it works, and it is downloadable from various sources. My work here is done.
  3. Obviously Evernote is welcome to determine what level of OS they will support their product on, but there are some of us who need to keep it working on existing technology that cannot upgrade beyond a certain OS (such as this iMac Early 2008 that is at the maximum El Capitan, 10.11.6). I think when people are asking for the best version that will run on whatever system they are stuck with, it would be beneficial all if you would simply provide the download links with the note, "Hey, these aren't supported going forward, but they did work at the time. Use at your own risk." For example, I'm using 7.2.1 right now. Is that the last and best-performing version that will work with El Capitan? That is information that I think would be good to provide, with little or no downside to Evernote. No?
  4. Yes, while there is a preferences setting to set the format for "insert date", the choices are simply not very robust. If this were to be expanded to include both a match to the Windows date+time style, and to the style that you request (which is also what want: YYYYMMDDHHMM), it would seem to solve the entire problem.
  5. And I'm looking for the opposite. The answer suggests that in the Windows version the system inserts Date+Time automatically, which is exactly what I would expect and want and would kill for. Ok, that's going too far. But it would be nice if a proper timestamp (date + time) could be inserted with a single key command rather than two. [Corollary question: if I just insert time, then, when I look at this entry tomorrow, will it show the date and time instead of just the time as it shows now? I guess I could wait till tomorrow to find out! I've been doing this manually in other ways prior to this, and am looking to move some functionality to Evernote here.]
