  1. On Windows, try signing out out of your user name, then exiting, rebooting, then signing back in. On your note list, make the sync column visible, sort all notes by sync, then sync all notes. If any notes still have a dot next to them, they are not synced, so additional steps would be needed. I find the Android version kinda buggy in general, I try not rely on it for entering data too much, though it has more features than the iOS version, which seems more solid.
  2. If the entire performance of the program is affected, it has been reported that manually signing out of your user name on the program (not just closing the program), then exiting, rebooting, and signing back in manually, is supposed to help. This is a lot safer than what I describe below: __________________________________________________________________________________ If you are feeling really ambitious, you could try the Ctrl-Help menu. Warning: it is possible to break something or lose data using the Ctrl-Help menu: 1-Sync all your notes, then sort the note list by synced. Make sure you can see the sync column, then manually copy all notes that didn't get synced into new notes (the notes with the dot in them). This is to preserve them, since the next steps might destroy those notes 2-On the note list, show all notes (Shift-F6) 3-Click anywhere on the note list, then select all notes ((Ctrl-A). The entire list should be highlighted. 3-Press Ctrl while clicking on Help, then from the menu, click on "Fix Selected Notes". My understanding is that this step replaces selected notes with the server copy. This should help fix problems, but notes that are not synced may get deleted, you should be able to find such notes on the first step. 4-If this step did not quite help, you could try other options on the same menu, like "Optimize database", "Fix Lost resources". "Fix Notebookless notes". Keep in mind that the entire Ctrl-Help menu is normally hidden for a reason, and it was originally designed to be used under guidance from support. I have fixed my chronic speed issues successfully with the above, but I am only a regular user, and I found that if i made sure of step one, I (apparently) did not lose data.
  3. Hmm, not sure about number of words, but I notice little to no slowdown in notes from 3 to 28 megabytes, with graphics &, tables, even PDF notes get only somewhat slower. But I have a number of notes copied from the internet, 1 megabyte or less in size, but they are copies of heavily formatted pages, one of them is from a Facebook page. Those notes are very slow to display. In general, I find information I copy from the web with formatting preserved, may go from slightly slower to very slow, so I usually strip things up when I can, unless the formatting is important. It may also happen if the note has errors, in such cases I rebuild the note, just in case.
  4. If there is no other program installed in your new laptop, I would look at the WIndows 10 global hotkeys, I had to disable them to fix some hotkey conflicts before. This link might help with that: https://windowsreport.com/disable-keyboard-shortcuts-windows-8/#2
  5. If I understand you correctly, it sounds like saved searches would address your concerns for selection/deselection of multiple notebooks and/or tags. Yes, syntax can be tricky, but once you get it right, you can save it for reuse.
  6. That does happen occasionally, but between two somewhat different copies of the same note, vs a lost note, seems worth it to me.
  7. Yes, though I managed to rescue my recent lost data by copying it from another device before updating. I always disable/delay automatic synchronization whenever possible, for just such a time as this.
  8. They gave me a complimentary Premium account for several months after I reported some data corruption issues, this expired upon my annual renewal in June. Not sure why it hasn't reverted back to Plus on the forum, for sure I no longer have note history.
  9. Priority support keeps signing me out, do they not support Plus accounts? Apparently I cannot use the following link, is there another? https://www.evernote.com/SupportLogin.action I keep getting the message "You have logged out of Evernote". I have assumed they read the forums, in any case. I hope Austin G doesn't mind if I reference him on this issue, since the encryption bug is repeatable.
  10. I have reported corruption of encrypted data before, but I didn't know the cause, now I do: When double clicking on encrypted text, if the mouse moves slightly, resulting in accidentally dragging the encrypted icon, the icon will become permanent and the encrypted data will be lost, decryption will no longer be accesible. This is repeatable, and I believe it is not version dependent since I have seen it before, though I have the latest version. This is a big problem for those of us who don't have note history (Plus & free accounts).
  11. Had to disable Autohotkey to get it to work, I see it works like clicking on the right side of a tag. I thought your comment meant that shift click was one of two ways to do what I was asking, I guess I misunderstood.
  12. Yep, nothing seems to happen.
  13. Many people swear by Ctrl-Q, I appreciate it is yet another way to do things, just not a way I perceive to save me time, at least not yet. It seems to behave somewhat like search on Android, though it works better on Android (it reminds me of the discussion of "relevant search results", it works pretty much like that in Android, not so much in Windows).
  14. I tried shift-clicking around with my tags, wasn't able to observe what it is supposed to do.
  15. Wow, where was that feature hiding, it works, thanks! I think that's one of more useful tricks I have seen in a long time, it also works dragging saved searches & notes from the note list. 👍
