  1. What also has me concerned that under Does Evernote Share My Personal Information or Content? https://evernote.com/legal/privacy.php?2017-update There is the following "We do so in connection with the sale or reorganization of all or part of our business, as permitted by applicable law."
  2. Well over the past years I have migrated away from some Google products. I no longer use Chrome as my default browser as I did not like the approach Chrome devs were taking towards my security and privacy regarding several aspects of Chrome. Their dev team over the years have shown a take it or leave it attitude when several users of Chrome protested changes and Google denying requests to implement an ability for end users to disable the feature. I have also stopped using Google+ after using it since its inception. Google seems to take lets see if it sticks to the fridge approach to their software and other products. Putting all one's eggs in one basket is not a safe thing to do as they may get scrambled. Not being able to have the data in question encrypted on the server and to have Google holding the keys is something I will have to give a fair amount of thought. Thankfully I do not store any really sensitive information on Evernote unlike some people I know do.
  3. There is a extremely frustrating issue in the Web Clipper extension in Firefox when used on Mac OSx. The addon prompts you to login but the password field refuses pasting in of the account password. I use Lastpass for all my passwords and have complicated passwords. Having to type in in manually is extremely frustrating to say the least!
  4. I have done several tests and the search capability is not usefull. I tried numerous times to search notes after printing as well as writing text and a vast majority of the time Penultimate on iOS failed to find any occurrences of the search text.
  5. Ok thanks. I usually use the Web or iOS clients rather than the stand alone app but may give that option a shot. Thanks again for the tip.
  6. Why are you creating all these useless tags? I simply don't create useless tags. No problemo. These so called useless tags were from notes that I created over the last 4 years. The notes were no longer wanted/needed and were deleted leaving the tags behind.
  7. Sigh oh well good thing I do not use Evernote regularly as I would hate to have even more useless tags than I already have.
  8. I upgraded the iOS version today and discovered that I have pages and pages of tags that have 0 notes. Why is Evernote keeping all these empty tags around rather than deleting them.
  9. What is the reasoning of having the Cancel and OK buttons' position on the prompt window when you are deleting items? I have lost count how many times I have selected a series of items to delete and clicked on CANCEL by force of habit, since OK usually precedes a CANCEL button on a windows GUI. Also frustrating is that the website constantly refreshes and loses the check marks in selected items I wanted to delete.
  10. Could not figure out why the most recent version of Evernote Beta would not syncrhonize properly until I realize it was trying to use the proxy I had running. There is no where in Evernote, as far as I can tell, to enable/disable it from using a proxy.
  11. Have bite the bullet and installing Comodo firewall.
  12. Happened again and this time I noticed like before the Evernote icon was not in Systray. However I was still able to start Evernote and noticed that it was attempting to authenticate. Like before the computer had to be rebooted to regain control.
  13. When this happens the application is not suppose to be running. It does not show in my system tray and I only discover it because of system problems and find it in my tasklist and discover EVERNOTE.EXE is running for some reason and using all these CPU cycles. The application window opens and I see nothing out of the ordinary, however at the time as a I indicated above I was had no idea Evernote was running, since it is configured NOT to start on bootup. I was performing some other task and wasnt even using Evernote.
  14. This week I upgraded the beta to the most recent release and ever since I have noticed Evernote.exe running in the WinXP Pro task list and I can not terminate the process via Task Manager and Terminate Process Thread! It is using up to 70% of the CPU at times! The only way I can regain control of my machine is to restart Windows which is not an easy task in itslef in that Windows can take up to 5 minutes to try to shutdown. The thing is that I can start up the Windows Evernote application when this problem occurs so I do not know why Evernote.EXE is running when the application appears to startup and exits properly!

  15. Does the 'Check for updates' feature work on this portable installation of Evernote? No because the check for updates option is missing from the Help menu in the portable version, perhaps because it can not login. Done Well when this same problem occurred with the desktop version, even shutting down Sunbelt Kerion Personal firewall did nothing to fix that problem and disabling the software firewall did not help the portable version.
  16. There is proxy software installed but it is not running here at the time. There is a software firewall on this machine, Sunbelt Kerio Personal firewall. However no change was made to it and the runs ok but even its portable Evernote still locks up the machine when it attempts to login.
  17. I spoke too soon. After my last post I tried installing Evernote Portable and when it started up it too locked up tight when attempting to login. Both are .539 versions.
  18. I have no idea why the heck I was having all the problems. It did not matter whether I had IE, FF 2.12 nor FF 3.bpre5 opening up EverNote would lock up the computer solid every time I tried to logon. For some reason the next time I tried it, a couple of days later it had no problems logging in. I changed nothing here and it certainly wasn't a lack of rebooting, since I did that a lot after each of the lockups.
  19. I did't have such problem . my version is In my case I quit all of the unnecessary applications in the systray and started up the beta and every time I tell it to login it it just sits there without throwing any error message at all. This has happened on three occasions but only when I attempted to login.
  20. Thanks for all the help with fixing this problem with the beta. Really appreciate.
  21. No that would be an alpha release. I have beta tested many apps over the years and Evernote is one of the very few betas which I could not kill off its task using either the taskmanger of SysInternals Process monitor.
  22. I have an AMD X2 3500+ computer with 2 GB of memory using XP Pro SP2 and just installed Evernote beta. I have tested betas before and am currently using beta nightly builds of Firefox. After I installed Evernote and entered the incorrect login for the Evernote username and password, the beta took over my machine by using 92% of the CPU! I could neither kill off the process tree nor regain control of my computer. I actually had to reboot the computer completely! Why doesn't Evernote timeout within a reasonable amount of time trying to login instead of a deadly embrace?
