  1. The only opt-in that has changed is the machine learning. We still cannot opt out of our notes being accessed by employees. Here's the current privacy policy: Here's the 2017 privacy policy There's very little difference, and no way to opt out. How Evernote responds to this in coming weeks will be very telling -- and reshape how I use Evernote in the future.
  2. In what way am I wrong, exactly? I agree that they can improve their users' data safety. My point is that the privacy policy did not change between 2016 and 2017, and the inability to opt out of some employees having access to our email is still an issue, has always been. Whether or not you can live with that, now isn't the time to thank them for their understanding. They're still on the hook.
  3. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Jan 2017 update did not really change how employees may access our information -- it just added the machine learning piece and the disclaimer that you can't opt out of employees looking at your data. Looking at the 2017 update, and the current standing privacy, we do not nor have we ever had a guaranteed expectation of privacy. "As a rule" they do not access it unless [reasons] isn't saying much. And, again, there's no way to opt out. It's great we're having this conversation, if a bit late. This is a good reminder to all: Evernote is a cloud service run by humans and, like any other, it will never be 100% safe from access, be it internal or external.
  4. Can you help point me in the right direction? I found the old "Evernote Widget" that's been around for years but its capabilities are as limited as ever, as near as I can tell. I can create a new note, but don't see anyway to go straight to document/sticky scanner, etc.
  5. Is there any way to create shortcuts to launch the document scanner, sticky note, text note "new note" options directly?
  6. This version fully synchronized and has been working great, a first on my surface rt! Now that I can actually use it, I must beg for the implementation of check boxes and reminders.
  7. The combination of circumstances is actually quite simple and easily reproducible. The touch client is, at best, unstable/unreliable. Every time you open a note, it counts as editing--there's no view/edit separation like in other clients. On a good day, this is a mere inconvenience--viewing a note counts as modifying it. On a less good day, the note won't load for whatever reason... as soon as you hit the back button, the app saves the current state and syncs it to the service. In the case of a note that failed to load "current state" is an empty note. It won't be in the trash; if you're lucky, you can restore it from a previous version using the Desktop version of Evernote. If possible, send Evernote your error logs -- perhaps one day they'll get the app's problems sorted out. My advice for the time being is to avoid the touch client.
  8. On a Windows 8 Pro tablet, you can use the weird touch version and/or the full desktop version. On Windows RT, the touch version is the only option.
  9. No, this is the flat "Modern" version for Windows 8 only
  10. This version is, for me, less stable than the last; the last never would pull all my notes but would at least think it was done syncing. This one opens and crashes. I have done the whole uninstall-reboot-install circuit to no avail.
  11. Now I see what you mean, that markup is pretty gross. A workaround (one that I use constantly, not just for Evernote) would be to plain text paste (ctrl+shift+v in firefox and chrome)
  12. Agreed . . . even if harmless, I encounter it daily and find it rather jarring/annoying. How are you testing your clipboard results? I've tried reproducing your findings using the WordPress visual editor (in chrome) and after removing formatting in Evernote, it's just pasting <div>blah</div>.
  13. Actually, that change to explicit courier new is a carryover from Evernote 4. I'd mentioned it before. Even weirder, if you select a different note, then come back to the note you just stripped down to plain text you should find it is no longer displaying as courier.
  14. No. I'm more protective of my devices than some people are of their toddlers. At least, in my experience, the toddler can (and often will) follow you
