    How did MacOS, iOS, and Android color theme feature parity jump to the front of the line on those priorities and leave Windows at the back or as the designated driver?

    As far as I know, all those other clients support dark mode natively. Win32 does not. Which means writing custom controls for pretty much every single UI element in the app. That is a massive job (I know, I looked into that before I left). So prioritizing performance is a much better bang/buck for the Windows client.

    Is it likely that if the development team used Windows instead of MacOS then it would have be prioritized or at least been included?

    LOL. You joke about that... The Windows dev team is about the only people there that run Windows. (Tho, when I left last June, they had managed to convince a couple more people to use Windows as their primary system)

    If you like a smaller footprint the s1300i does a nice job.  Still does double sided with 10-15 page capacity.

    Oooo. That one looks nice - I'll have to keep it in mind when it gets time... I do often bring mine to dog shows (where I'm secretary) - that would travel _much_ better!

    Hmm. I seem to recall that attachments used to come in in the order chosen from Explorer. Doesn't seem to work that way now. I wonder if they implemented some sort of threaded (i.e. parallel) loading to make things load faster, but now the ordering is not retained.

    As I remember, the ordering is simply what Windows says. (Keep wanting to type 'tells us' - but I'm not 'us' now LOL!) EN doesn't know how that is sorted. And who knows how Windows actually keeps its internal list...

    This is for sure no dirt

    I didn't figure it was. But all the googling seems to imply "this is how to fix it". You know... the internet... sigh.

    For now, single sided scanning is fine. For things that are truly double sided, I can use Acrobat to reorder the pages. When the scanner fully dies, I will probably go for another ix. They're not cheap, but I've been loving this one! (It also helps I was an EN employee when I got it - EN had a blowout sale for employees and we got it for something like 80% off!)

    USB is working, ...


    To use the SW, one has to convert the EN edition scanner to a normal ix500 by firmware update. It makes it work as any other ix500 (like mine, which was a standard one from the beginning), but it can’t be reverted. 

    Ah, that's good to know! The SS web page certainly seemed to imply everything would be done via wifi...

    Now I can debate about whether to do it or not... Though I'm wondering if my scanner is dying - it now has a black bar on the backside scan. Tried cleaning as suggested, but that didn't fix it. So at least for now, I've disabled 2-sided scanning.

    that will force me to use ScanSnap Home

    I got that email saying the Evernote specific version is now dead - Hey! Upgrade to ScanSnap Home! (firmware update plus PC software update)

    (reads the fine print) Um, this looks like they're taking away USB scanning and forcing me to wifi - and their cloud. <expletive> no! (I take my scanner to remote places with my laptop [dog shows] that have no wifi)

    I would suspect that Windows 10 has decided that it needs Ctrl+Shift+C

    Windows tends to stick to Win+<something> for its keys. It could be a different program registered that sequence. Global hotkeys are a first-come-first-served type thing. And that's not a global hotkey for EN - it's just a standard accelerator sequence (as in, it will only work in EN, not when another program has focus)

    And it still WOMM! (Works On My Machine) (Win10Pro + current patchs, EN6.22.3)

    Thank you very much. I'll try that but what do you mean by "refreshing the installation"?

    Just run the old installer again. If it prompts for anything, you're doing a "repair". EN should be able to upgrade (or uninstall) fine after that.

    It sounds as though you may have some clean up tool that is removing msi files from \Windows\Installer. As you can see, that's a _really_ bad idea. Those MSIs are used as the script to uninstall old programs.

    Does Evernote for Windows have a release life-cycle?

    When I was there (left last June), we had 2 week sprints and aimed at a 6 week release cadence (sometimes longer). At the time I left, E4W was being prioritized lower so work could progress on the new (multiplatform) version - I haven't been following that, but I believe it's in Beta.

    When I try to share a note url and open it in a browser

    If you're being blocked in a browser (not the desktop exe), then it sounds like ISP is blocking the URL.

    Evernote for Windows

    EeGads! I'm actually surprised that can still connect as I thought Evernote blocked all clients before (shoot, I forget the exact version, but I think) 6.7.

    Since you brought it up, can you explain how ink notes are stored in Evernote?

    I understand the underlying enml/html code, but that's text based

    I believe this is a Evernote/Windows feature.  I use a Mac/iPad; we can use "ink", but it's stored as a file attachment stored within the note contents

    I don't remember for certain (I'd have to dump out the enml and look), but I think the ink data is also stored as an attachment. Either that, or just a binary-cdata section in the html... (That code all existed before I started there and I never worked on it - except to port the actual inkedit dll from Visual Studio 2005 to VS2010 (I think that was the port...) - I just remember the new compiler triggered some compile errors in the code due to C++11 changes - but that didn't require any knowledge of how we used the control within the editor)

    Hi.  Has this been the case for a while,  or did it appear recently after one of those updates?  Best usual fix is to backup the database folder,  uninstall Evernote,  restart and reinstall.  Meantime Evernote can easily be started from the Start menu,  and if you want to replace that icon,  try right-clicking the icon and 'remove from start menu',  then find the program file in your list of apps and right-click it and 'add to start menu' to replace the shortcut.

    Actually, the fix is easier. Just unpin the blank icon. And re-pin. Officially, Microsoft does not allow access to changing user choices (pinning is one), so the installer doesn't try to do nefarious things like other installers (Firefox!) do. Since the underlying exe has changed, MS no longer considers the previous pin a valid shortcut.
