  1. Spoke too soon, It's back again this morning. Present on any note I try to move.
  2. I had the same yesterday, but no longer seems reproducible.
  3. Evernote have advised that this will be a coming feature and this with a lot of other user feedback is in development to be added to Tasks. For now it is a matter of patience.
  4. Yep discovered the same thing happening here this morning. Running Win 10
  5. That's not of much use where EN have me throttled to 5.33.0 on the web version and it doesn't have the Home Page or widgets. ....Grrr I'll see how I get on with Shanes workaround version on the Desktop app.
  6. Not seeing anything on my V10.11.5 Where should we be looking?
  7. @gazumped Watched Steve last night and took part in the live webinar chat. I agree with Steve's take on a lot of things and the overall management decisions and approach that has been taken by Evernote is understood, I even agree that it makes a lot of sense. Where I have issues is that they're providing upgrades, desktop front ends etc, but rectification of bugs and restoring previous functionality is just not forthcoming. Steve didn't ignore the issues, several times he mentioned lack of functionality and how it messed with workflows for "power" users. I did take exception to him quoting that only he 2% of users utilise tags, I remain unconvinced by this and would love Ian Small to provide supporting data to this effect. It was perhaps notable that on the mop up Q&A at the end, Steve was asked several functionality questions and didn't know the answer. Of course I'm not expecting him to know everything about the product, none of us do (well excepting a select few on here), but it did highlight clearly that Evernote users are a diverse bunch and what works for Steve does not reflect that others have a different use case and its not working for us. I am loath to leave Evernote, realistically I never will because at the very least I'll retain it as a historical database, but I'm getting tired of checking the forums each day and seeing that the same issues remain and that the promised restoration of functionality keeps stretching before us. If (and its a big "if") Nimbus works with a larger database I may move across, but it raises enough concerns in itself regarding its background, security and longevity. Nimbus is agile at the moment because its young and fresh, (Evernote was there once), but I don't want to be having this same conversation in a Nimbus forum in 10yrs time. We'll see how it pans out. I just want a stable 100yr Elephant that keeps doing what I want. I know Legacy does that now, but it won't be around forever.
  8. @bradypatterson I'm in the process of exporting enex files by notebooks at present. Evernote is raising some errors advising a file cannot be exported, but it give no detail what file that might be. I've a suspicion the issue might be around password protected files, or very large attachment's. Any ideas on how these rogues might be found?
  9. @Mike P I've a theory that the issue is arising because I'm running both V10 and Legacy. I think there's a database hook fault somewhere. You're probably on the mark, clearing the database and forcing a new download may solve it, but I'm not really in a position to afford the time to do this at present.
  10. I'm at the same juncture. I bought Nimbus on a whim several months back and toyed with it but didn't apply any serious time to it. Having waited for V10 to improve, I'm at a stage where documented issues are not getting resolved in a timely manner and the recent updates have been more about window dressing than resolving bugs. For example, it's unacceptable for a tag search or filter to provide a null return and this has been flagged in other posts since V10 was released. I'm in the process of importing all my 17,500 notes into Nimbus and then I'll give it a proper stress test. Doubtless it has issues too, some of which are documented here, but their agility and responsiveness in addressing problems and introducing useful new features is streets ahead of Evernote. I'll run duplicate notes across both applications for a period. I'm not yet ditching Evernote, but it is on its final warning.
  11. mrothmay, I am having the same problem in Win 10 and at the moment it is a deal breaker for me. Searching by tag is my most frequent search. I have noted that if I delete the original tag from a note and reapply the tag then it persists and this modified note will show in a tag search. But there's no way I'm going to retag 17,536 notes. 😵
  12. Thanks Cal, In some ways your storage need is very close to mine. I haven't had a worry about local docs, I've no problem with mine being on EN servers, I see this as better security than a local hard drive and back up files elsewhere. That which I store is information useful to me and my clients, but of little commercial value or sensitivity to others. Anytime I've needed, I've made use of data encryption within a note. I'm running on a Surface Pro, so hard drive space is limited, hence my use of OneDrive for file storage. I've never explored windows indexing, I assume it works across both local and OneDrive files? I think the only thing putting me off this approach is the tagging workaround. As you say drudge work and I'm the first to admit I'm lazy this way. I'm unlikely to maintain a consistent filename tagging approach for any length of time. I understand what you're saying about the file explorer preview, I've mine set up this way also. OneDrive on the iphone also gives me document portability and has been faultless in my use.
  13. I never could get on with SSM, to me it was only a scanning conduit. SSH didn't start out too well, and I fully agree Fujitsu communication and update process is a shambles. I only see SSH as a front end conduit for my documents, OneDrive is the storage platform. As I've replied to Stefan, I think a lot of my issues are Evernote weariness. For me V10 has the potential to be a great product, but its not a patch on Legacy for getting work done. I cancelled my premium subscription last Autumn in some form of protest, only to renew again at the start of the year when I couldn't find a better home elsewhere.
  14. I'm on Windows so Keep It doesn't work for me. Pity I like the look of it. I get what you're saying about Fujitsu, I'm aware of their history and do have concerns about the quality of their software and product development. I wouldn't give ScanSnap a second look if it was holding by files in a proprietary container. I'm very much on the fence with Evernote at the moment. I've been an advocate of it since very early days. Back then I was an avid note taker, today this has migrated to a document hoarder. Data portability and sharing to others have become much more important to me. I guess I might be guilty of Evernote weariness and admit to trying many of the competitions products over the last year. be it Notion, Nimbus, Joplin or OneNote. It might be familiarity, but EN still suits the best. If EN10 could come back to Legacy parity I might be content as is, I do like the new format. Oh well,... back on the fence for now.
