  1. Bitlocker requires a TPM chip. I don't think it is limited to Home.
  2. Sorry, can't help any further but many of us want the ability to select our own image. If you would like to join the crowd you can vote up the request here. Maybe someday we will get it.
  3. I'm not sure if it is more completely explained anywhere else, but there is this:
  4. Wow! I empathize. I have an older, lower end laptop with around 17K notes and the SSD replacement about two years ago was the magic bullet for me. I removed the HDD and replaced it with an SSD and reinstalled the OS, so everything is running on the SSD not just the database. I've seen others have reported this problem as well and hope that EN can eventually get to the bottom of it and I keep my fingers crossed that my system continues to remain somewhat problem free. I sacrifice a chicken every couple of weeks to be on the safe side.
  5. Good grief, sometimes I really wonder ... A satisfactory response would be to provide us a way to override their default image selection algorithm. I prefer snippet view and many of the snippet images, especially those from web clippings, show an image that has no meaning to the note. I live with this but don't like it and once Evernote gets the bug list under control, they really, really should consider addressing this.
  6. That shouldn't be happening unless your post violated one of the user agreement terms. There has been an effort lately to consolidate similar posts into one thread. Maybe they have just been moved?
  7. I use Chrome on Windows 7 and also see the log in in the upper right. Maybe if you show us what you are seeing we can help further.
  8. Make sure you don't have beta updates enabled. Go to Tools -> Options -> General and make sure "Enable beta features and updates" is not selected. You can also deselect "Automatically check for updates."
  9. The iOS app works ok for me but "fluid" is not one word that comes to mind when I use it. I have an older phone which is partly to blame but performance has never been snappy for me.
  10. I haven't loaded the latest but I think you may have answered your own question.
  11. I've been watching Notion, but not too closely. Have they added in the ability to scan or email content in? I did see they added a web clipper. How does it compare to EN's?
  12. and that is a surprise to ... no one 😁 Sorry, couldn't resist.
  13. Mine work fine now but two years ago when I changed from a PC to a Mac at home I was surprised to find that the searches which worked fine on Windows did not work the same on the Mac. After some fiddling with the terms I was able to get them to work consistently, but the syntax is definitely not intuitive.
  14. Except, unless I missed it, that article doesn't cover reminders. Reminder search is definitely non-intuitive. I have yet to create a reminder saved search without some level of trial and error especially since the syntax doesn't (or at least didn't ... haven't checked lately) work exactly the same for all platforms. Searching is one of the strongest elements of Evernote and they could do a much better job making this easier for a user without having to reference a help file.
  15. I'm not aware of encryption in either web version as well. Interesting, this is also mentioned in the English version of the help FAQ. https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209006027-What-s-new-in-Evernote-Web
  16. There are no email notifications, but if you are using one of the desktop versions the activity icon will change color to show you that something has occurred. You then have to click on the icon to get extra information. I'm not sure what is happening but Evernote doesn't handle real time editing of shared notes. It can be done but it is probably best to sync before you edit a note and then after an edit to make sure all changes have been pushed out or received. Concerning the problem note, maybe copy it in new note and share that and then delete the original one if the new one is working out ok.
  17. This is an outlining feature that Evernote presently does not have but is frequently requested. You can go to this post to add your vote.
  18. Saved searches are something that you create. Basically you create some search criteria that can then get saved into the left hand panel for later reuse when you need it. Excluding notebooks in a search would be very useful, but until then tags are the work around. As an example, if you have a notebook named Work that you would like to exclude you could select every note in that notebook and assign it a tag called Work. Then to exclude those notes in a search use -tag:Work in your search. If you plan on using that search often, then File -> Saved Search (on Windows) to save this search selection.
  19. Maybe I'm missing something. What advantage do you see to using the new feature? I see none, only extra steps especially if I decide to later update the template.
  20. Where are you (application/menu?) when you are trying to right click to save to Evernote?
  21. As mentioned, you need to have a version of the note in your database in order to access any of that note's history. If you have nothing to grab history from then reach out to customer support. If the note has lived long enough to have been captured during one of their backups then I think they can retrieve it for you.
  22. I have everything in one account, both business and home so in that sense they are not segregated, but I do organize them into two stacks, one for home and one for work. I have a saved search for home only and then another for work only, so I can "segregate" that way. I will then use tags to further subdivide.
  23. Yes, click on trash and it will take you to the note there. It does take an extra step to see it but search has identified there is one in trash.
  24. I agree, on the Mac it is excluded for me as well, but as an example, here is what I see on Windows:
