  1. I’ve tried to download and install the web clipper on my iPad, but it doesn’t work. It asks me where I want to put it, but it doesn’t give Safari as a choice. I tried the choice for a folder (under iPad) named numbers because the others made even less sense! I’d like the option to add it to Safari, which is where it’s supposed to be. I guess I’m supposed to intuit the location. Suggestion: if it’s not going anywhere that’s obvious, like Safari, how about instructions when I install? When I tap on the file it downloaded, “Evernote-web-clipper-latest data” Not terribly useful and frustrating. What next?

    Found and fixed
  3. No, because when I tap on a note, it selects that note. If t tap on another, it selects that note, not both. I'm doing this on the iPad, does that matter? Is it different if I do it on my computer?
  4. I have a Mac and 2 iOS devices, and use evernote on all three. There are hundreds of notes, many very old. I have started deleting many of them, but it is very slow. Is there a way to bulk delete multiple notes? (I searched both the forums and the knowledge base.)
  5. Thanks for the pic. Yes, I do have that of course, but now I can't find any of the problematic notes. Maybe when they fix the initial problem, it retroactively affected the other notes. If I stumble across one of them, I'll certainly give it a try.
  6. Sorry it's taken me so long to get back here. Thanks for the tip. As for the paragraph marker with a slash through it, I don't have it. You may have a different version (i'm using iOS) or they modified the interface again and that's gone.
  7. Is there anyway to find the note you just entered, other than to sort by entry date and hunt it down? In this version of Evernote, once I enter a note, it totally vanishes. I have to go looking for it somehow to validate that it actually got entered and saved. Seems to me, it would be a lot better if the note I just entered stayed right there on screen, where I can see it, without having to look for it somewhere.
  8. I found other references to this in these forums. It has been fixed in the latest release, I guess I found it at a good time!
  9. Astonishing! A app for storing notes that you can't past text into! Amazing fail! Like Excel not allowing you to enter numbers! These developers couldn't write code to add 2+2! A year or two ago it couldn't format pasted text and spread it all across the page so you had to scroll back and forth to see your text. It took them months to fix it. How long do you suppose it will take these clowns to fix this? Hopefully within a year. Or two. Meanwhile maybe we should just memorize everything we would have put in EN for the next year, then enter it! It's time to lose this POS for something that actually lets you keep notes! I'm open to suggestions.
  10. I admit, I've been very critical of EN for a long time. That's because I've become an infrequent user, and every time I try and do something in EN, I find a new interface in which I can't find most of the features. So I went it today to get some info, and found the latest version, which I haven't tried out yet. Honestly, I am impressed. I found most of what I want/need in EN in a few minutes of playing. Pretty straight forward this time! They even put the little star at the bottom so I can easily find my Favorites again. Yippee! Please, please EN staff, don't go messing with the main interface for a while. You got it back to where it's pretty intuitive and functional. If you need to add a feature or two, fine, BUT LEAVE THE MAIN FORMAT AS IS FOR A WHILE, SO WE CAN USE IT PLEASE! My only complaint at this point is the those notes that run off the edge of the page (from back when EN forgot how to format simple text notes) still run off the edge of the page. I even tried copying and pasting one into a new note, but the formatting problem came with it. If anyone knows of a fix for these, please let me know.
  11. I know, pretty stupid. It occured to me this morning that I should be able to post a picture I had just downloaded from the web into EN from EN directly into FG. Sure enough, there was a FB button I found and, with that pic/note selected, I clicked on it! How incredibly dumb of me. EN proceeded to open 101 instances of my FB login page (I was already logged in by the way) before I finally got my browser shut down to stop it. You'd think by now I'd know better than to trust something like this to EN! It can barely, sometimes, keep my notes intact and formatted.
  12. I went to copy a poem into EN this morning, but it just keeps quitting on me. Tried again tonight, same thing. Useless. Can't see my notes, use my notes or enter a note on my desktop. Why is it that on the rare occasions I try and use EN for anything, there's a major problem? EN has gotten steadily less stable, less usable, since 3.0 came out years ago. It was for a long time my favorite software, now it's the one I hate the most.
  13. It started working again a couple of days later. I have no idea what was wrong, but I'm trusting EN less and less.
  14. I went to look up some info I had in EN this morning, and all I can see is the first part of each note in the multi-note part. The pane that used to show the full note is now blank, in all 3 views! So when did this break and is there any plan to fix it in the forseeable future, or will this be like the broken text feature and remain broken indefinitely? I really would like to see my notes in the local version someday again. Fortunately, I can see the full note in my cloud database, but I had some local critical ones that were not synced for security reasons, and I can only see the first couple of lines of those. Is there a fix coming? Any idea how soon? Or is it just my database that's corrumpted somehow from lack of use? I tried adding a new note and it won't let me add one. It will create an untitled note, but the lower panel won't accept and entry of any kind. Useless. How do they manage to make this software more and more useless with each new version? This software has been going steadily downhill since the genius took over and trashed the old EN and came out with Version 3! Everytime I come back to use it, there's something more wrong with it. A year or so ago, the editing feature was broken and the text was all over the place in the notes and it took them months to fix it. Now this. This is so frustrating.
  15. @Burgers and Fries "Regarding encryption...if you don't remember the encryption password, yes, you will lose the data. That's rather the point of encryption". I suggest you read a post more carefully before commenting, unless you enjoy playing the fool. I didn't sync after moving the note, so I guess I should read the manual before I do anything. here are the instructions I was given: "Copy the note to one of your notebooks that is synced. When you have reinstalled your machine and sync'd evernote - move the note to a local notebook." My mistake, I trusted someone who sounded knowledgeable.
  16. I posted here a few days ago about how to backup my EN note with all my passwords that was in my local notebook. I was told just to put the note in my shared/cloud notebook until after I reinstalled my system and it would be there when I wanted to put it back in my unshared local notebook, where I normally keep it. I moved it to my cloud notebook, made sure it was there afterward. I've just reinstalled my system, reinstalled EN, and that note is gone. Way to go EN! The only other time I put important information in EN was a few years ago when I put my Master Password in a note and encrypted it. When I unencrypted, it was gone. Fortunately, that time, it was only one password and I knew that it was. Not so with these, there were probably thirty or more. Gone. WARNING: Never, never, never, never entrust important information to cloud storage or to EN. You will lose it!
  17. I'm doing a clean install on my iMac, and I have all my passwords in EN note which is in a non-synced notebook for obvious reasons. I want to put this note in the cloud just long enough to reinstall my system, then bring it back down to the local notebook again and remove it from the cloud. Does anyone know how to do that? I would encrypt it, but I once tried to encrypt a password in EN and it just erased it, so I don't trust that I'll get my passwords back if I go that route. Any suggestions on how to do this safely?
  18. Thanks for your reply. After 10 minutes of searching the site, I give up. How do you file a support ticket?
  19. Problem is back again. My notes are shoved up behind the panel that is normally above them, obscuring the top inch or so of each note. This occurs in all three views. It is NOT a display problem, it is a problem with where EN is placing the note in the EN frames. If the note is just a short bit of text, it is completely obscured in the right panel, hidden behind the Task Description panel. I've been playing with it, and it's disturbing. If the note is just an image, and I place the cursor to the left of the image, then hit the return key, I can push the image down so it is entirely visible. I tried doing the same with text, but it doesn't work. It pushes the first line of text down into the other lines that are visible, if I hit return often enough. So basically, EN has screwed up all my notes because I can't see the top inch or so, which essentially makes them almost useless. I can copy them from EN into something else and get the whole thing, but I certainly don't want to have to copy 840 notes into something else. That's what I've used EN for for many years. Obvious question: How do I revert to previous version of EN?
  20. Thanks for your reply. Sorry, but you'd freak too if the top part of all your notes were suddenly gone immediately after an update. The problem has apparently resolved itself, my notes are intact again. I don't know what happened, I haven't even closed and re-opened EN since I noticed the problem and posted. I did see a clue as to what was going on earlier when I went back into EN after I read your post. One note, the one at the top of the tape (newest note), was still cut off at the top, but the upper part was showing through the normal grayed area where the note name, notebook, and dates, etc., are displayed. IOW, the note itself slid up behind the Note Description panel at the top and became the background for the Task Description panel in place of the usual gray. (Earlier on, the panel was the usual gray, without the top part of the note showing through.) And that was what was hiding the top of each note. Very weird. When I clicked on the newest note, it popped back down below the Task Description panel into it's normal place. None of the others had the problem any more.
  21. Upgraded to the latest version this morning, and the top third of all my notes are no longer accessible. No scrollbar, nothing! I can see the full note in the left panel thumbnail, but not in the main panel. This sucks! Thanks, Evernote, for ***** me over big time! Is a fix coming?
  22. Thanks for the reply. I just wanted a portion of the browser window, and it worked just fine in FF. I'll remember your tips for the next time though. Happy Holidays!
  23. I've been doing a lot of clipping in EN on my iMac at home lately, and I found that the option to clip a user defined box doesn't work in Chrome. The crosshairs appear, but I can't drag them wherever I want in the browser to select just the area I want to clip. It won't let me drag the crosshairs to the left hardly at all. Since the crosshairs appear near the right edge of the browser window, this isn't useful at all. I've had to switch back to FF when I'm doing any clipping. Is this a known bug? Is there a target date for the fix? Using current versions of EN, OSX, and Chrome (no betas). Thanks.
  24. It wasn't about timing - most of the images I'm talking about were saved days or weeks ago. As for an icon indicating they've been scanned to the right of the tag, no such icon is visible, unless it's an indistinguishable gray blob way over by the sync icon. In any case, the scan isn't working.
  25. For the first time in quite a while, I tried to search for text in EN 1.1 (OSX SL). Much to my chagrin, EN can no longer search for text in imported images at all! This is text in car ads copied directly from Craigslist into EN using the EN tool in Chrome and FF. I've tried a number of different words, all of which I knew occurred many times in these ads - EN can find none of them. Others seeing this? When did this break? Or is this another feature removed for compatibility or something? Major bummer for me - one of the main reasons I've kept EN for years.
