  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.
  15. Is anyone here on the forums using ScanSnap Home as document management front end? I've found it in conjunction with OneDrive as the file storage location to be a passable alternative to Evernote for my use case, with a tagging system available for data retrieval. It's not a note taking software, its a file management system in much the same vein as Paperport so it won't work for everyone. There are some elements that are "kludgy" such as sometimes having to manually request a reload folder for new documents to appear, or .pdf editing within ScanSnap viewer limited to files generated via the scan snap scanner. But these are minor and not insurmountable. The most appealing aspect is that your files remain in their native format within a OneDrive folder, or local folders for sensitive documents you do not wish to be on the cloud. There is no proprietary format or html containers and if scansnap home disappears tomorrow your data is unaffected. I'd be interested to know of others using the software and use cases.
  16. Is anyone using ScanSnap Home as a document management system? I only occasionally use Evernote to take property survey notes with pictures for work, but my primary use has been as a document filing system, 90% being in .pdf format. Last year, long prior to V10 fiasco I was asked to share a collection of documents on a specific use case. Because of IT protocols the company would not download Evernote to share an EN folder. I ended up having to copy all out as pdf files again and sharing as a OneDrive folder which suited their case as they were all an Office365 subscription. A lot of my interaction with companies is with O365 so I considered better working with them than trying to reinvent the wheel. The past year I've stored all these documents in a OneDrive account, using ScanSnap Home as the front end. To me this provides the best of both worlds. The documents are all in OneDrive folders, to be shared at will, whilst the Scansnap allows me to Record memo descriptions onto the file and to use a Tag based filing system for search recovery just the same as my Evernote tag system. I'm also confident that should Fujitsu someday withdraw Scansnap Home, the worst that will happen is that I will loose the tagging system. The base files remain in their native format and retained within OneDrive which I don't see disappearing anytime soon. I'd be interested to hear of anyone else's use case of ScanSnap Home. Details of it appear to be thin on the ground in a web search and I cannot find any independent user forum.
  17. Do you mind sharing what application you are using Stefan?
  18. He did seem to be pretty unsure about how the new version worked. I noted at one point in the Q&A he was asked about inserting a .pdf into a note and wasn't sure how to and indeed if it was still possible. I came away with the overall impression that he liked the bare bones changes when using it as a note taker, but didn't seem to address the myriad of use cases and how the new version is broken to all of us using it as a depository / document management / storage facility. I like Steve's approach and his video's in general but this one to me seemed half researched and like Version 10, "half-baked"
  19. For information: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/360052560314-Install-an-older-version-of-Evernote http://cdn1.evernote.com/win6/public/Evernote_6.25.1.9091.exe
  20. A very unscientific comparison finds Win 6.25 opening to an editable working position in sub 4 secs. Win 10.1.1 is taking 9 secs for me. And to think I used to consider 6.25 sluggish! iOS 10 version has similar issues. Timings of opening are not consistently repeatable. Sometimes almost instantaneous, other times might be 20 secs. Absolutely no use when all you want to do is take a quick note on the go.
  21. I have the same issue. EN keeps opening Shared with Me for me too and I don't have anything in the Shared with Me section.
  22. It's also worth remembering that Evernote a few years back produced or endorsed a number of ancillary items, be it the Scan snap ix500 "Evernote edition" to a range of socks and other paraphernalia. They withdrew entirely from this market as a cost cutting exercise with a focus on their core product, a fact which I think most of the user group supported and were thankful for. I don't see them moving back into the hardware market in any form anytime soon, indeed Ian Small has made it his mission since the outset to keep the focus on making Evernote great again. As PinkElephant indicates, there is an API there. It's much more likely that reMarkable or others tap into a connection as a service.
  23. I have an ix100 so the specific operation may be different, but the connection and Scansnap Manager software is common to both machines. Windows 10 never has recognised the scanner because Fujitsu use their own proprietary handshake connection and not the typical windows universal scan drivers. I've never had mine show up in the system devices list. I've also found the connection to be "flaky" over the past few weeks. The system will regularly hang mid scan advising it's receiving document, but eventually timing out. Strangely this seems to be when I have it on a wired connection. I find that on WiFi and with the USB cable connected it seems to figure itself out. I'm sort of gutted to be saying it, but the most robust operation at present is to use the scanner over WiFi to the mobile scansnap app, in my case on iOS and then forward it to my Evernote account. It shouldn't be the case, but this is presently the fastest and most reliable way of using the scanner. Given this is happening between scanner and ScanSnap Home this is a Fujitsu issue and not a reflection on Evernote. Cold comfort I know.
  24. I just want to back up this with support and congratulations of my own. Like so many here on the forums I've had frustrations and issues particular to my use case, but I acknowledge that these problems might be only for a small handful of people. Evernote's biggest strength is also its biggest weakness. It fit's so many use cases, but is not, nor does it pretend to be a specialist application for many of them. We can all be guilty of navel gazing and looking for that one action or tweak that will make it work for us. Personally I think Ian has done an excellent job. He set out a commitment early on to rectify the basic's and what we are now seeing close to fruition is just that. If nothing else I'd like to commend Ian for following through on just what he promised and not being sidetracked along the way. I'd love to see the new versions live and active across all platforms. Who doesn't want something new and shiny for Christmas? Many times this year I've pondered, what's the delay, why are we getting nothing new? (The background video's only slate this thirst for a short time.) But patience is now showing fruits of these labours and I'm more hopeful now going into the new year than I have been since I first stated using Evernote on my iPaq pocket PC a lifetime ago.
