  1. Sorry, I have been crazy busy this week and have only just seen this. I reverted to an earlier version that did not have the problem, and I did not "save" the offending notes. It seemed to be all pasted contents. I promise to do better with the next version, and be less impatient to have it perfect, so that I can at least send the corrupted files and the sites they came from. It seemed to be at least a couple of sites that I use a lot, and I vaguely recall having a similar problem some years ago when there was an editor format change... I didn't Evernote it, however!
  2. Probably - a question of degree. Maybe we have gotten too used to the betas not having major problems, so we forgot that they were 'supposed' to have bugs, some of which could be quite substantial. I think the possibility of an even more private beta group has been suggested before - I would be hesitant to join that group, but am still prepared to be on the current beta group. With the full recognition that there will be times that I need to go back to the previous stable build. If that capability is ever lost, I would be very unhappy. LOL!
  3. I don't disagree with you that this build should never have gone public. However, the changes that were made indicate that there are going to be some very important improvements coming as soon as the programmers get their act together and QC works as it is supposed to do ... I have tried some alternatives, but have yet to find one that matches EN. I do make a full back-up of the database before I do ANY upgrade, so once I made the decision that it was not worth persisting with the current version, I was able to revert relatively easily and painlessly (it did take a bit of time, though).
  4. OK. In the Evernote directory in the Program Files directory on my hard drive, there is a program called EvernoteCleanup.exe. I ran that as an administrator, and it seemed to address at least some of the challenges with the beta build (6.5.4.4720). I will continue to monitor and add to this message if I find something of interest. The difference in formatting were still there - particularly with large amounts of extra space around headings and after urls. I found no way of removing that space, and ENML editor is too cumbersome to use for other than the occasional tweak. So, I am back with 6.5 and will stay there until there is sufficient positive comment about the newest beta. The table improvements were great, but not worth the rest of the hassles IMHO. Took a while to go back, but I am glad I did.
  5. Seeing that others have had a similar problem with this version, I am going to go back to the previous version that was working well for me.
  6. Something has gone horribly wrong with the remove formatting options. I have a couple of web sites that I visit frequently - the update has wrecked my ability to quickly reformat the notes to appear the way I want them. There are a lot of extra <div> and </div> HTML tags showing up on ENML, but removing those is a nightmare. Even pressing the bullet button causes strange things to happen to the formatting. I think I will go back to the previous version, which worked well. I will optimize the database, and try a couple of other things first, then try installing again, but this is a pain. Here is the most recent log file after I tried to edit one of my notes that has proved difficult to correct. 21:49:03 [14060] Command line: "C:\x86\Evernote\Evernote\Evernote.exe" 21:49:03 [14060] Evernote for Windows 6.6.1.5097 (305097) Prerelease 21:49:03 [14060] Client info: Evernote Windows/305097 (en-US, DDL); Windows/10.0.15063 (Win64); 21:49:03 [14060] Common Editor: ce-1.22.1790 (c90219284a9901fe56fa4ebcfbdd52990ecc1fa0) 21:49:03 [14060] Bootstrap info: Evernote (loadedLastUsed) 21:49:04 [14060] Registered session count: 1, last session: 2017/05/12 21:45:00 21:49:04 [14060] Bootstrap info: Evernote (loadedDatabase) 21:49:04 [14060] Loaded session count: 0, last session: 2017/05/11 23:15:00 21:49:05 [1788] Sync rate configuration changed: 21:49:05 [1788] * syncStateIntervalMillis=20000 21:49:05 [1788] * updateNoteWhenIdleForMillis=3000 21:49:05 [1788] * updateNoteDuringEditIntervalMillis=6000 21:49:08 [14060] Opened database: C:\@@@.exb (5.6 GB Fixed 755 GB free) 21:49:08 [14060] * email: xxxx 21:49:08 [14060] * user: 21534 21:49:08 [12180] Import folder: "C:\Users\R\Desktop\Evernote" started, DeleteImportedFiles, ImportOneLevelDeep 21:49:09 [1296] 0% SyncState: devices used: 2 21:49:12 [14060] Registered session count: 1, last session: 2017/05/12 21:45:00 21:54:12 [14060] # Fixing 1 selected notes... 21:55:01 [14764] 0% Syncing note "3 Powerful Indigenous Herbs From Nort...", resource count: 0 21:55:01 [14764] 0% * guid={9BA5B2E1-CFA5-4C4C-9198-584F6E087BB7} 21:55:02 [14764] 0% Updating local note "3 Powerful Indigenous Herbs From Nort...", resource count: 1, usn=174271 21:55:02 [14764] 0% * guid={9BA5B2E1-CFA5-4C4C-9198-584F6E087BB7} 21:55:02 [14764] 0% * Retrieving note content, length=33804 21:55:02 [14764] 0% * guid={9ba5b2e1-cfa5-4c4c-9198-584f6e087bb7} 21:55:02 [14764] 0% Creating local resource "3591e7f85e99e206879a331836714781" placeholder, 3928 bytes 21:55:02 [14764] 0% * rsrc={55FF4BDF-38FC-4358-8387-E0E4F814F89C}, note={9ba5b2e1-cfa5-4c4c-9198-584f6e087bb7} 21:55:02 [14764] 0% * Retrieving resource data, size=3928 21:55:02 [14764] 0% * rsrc={55ff4bdf-38fc-4358-8387-e0e4f814f89c}, note={9ba5b2e1-cfa5-4c4c-9198-584f6e087bb7} 21:55:04 [14764] 0% * Retrieving resource reco data, size=640 21:55:04 [14764] 0% * rsrc={55ff4bdf-38fc-4358-8387-e0e4f814f89c}, note={9ba5b2e1-cfa5-4c4c-9198-584f6e087bb7} 21:55:07 [14060] # Fixing 1 selected notes done 22:00:18 [14060] Registered session count: 2, last session: 2017/05/12 22:00:00
  7. To the left of the search notes box there is a drop-down menu. The top section gives you what you are looking for.
  8. Have you got instant sync enabled? If so, disable it. Otherwise I have no idea, other than to send a note to support.
  9. Having problems with the latest version: I load the tag selection with CTRL-ALT-T, and Evernote hangs. The only way to get out of it is to do CTRL-ALT-Del. I checked the log and found this: 12:39:18 [9348] Sync rate configuration changed: 12:39:18 [9348] * syncStateIntervalMillis=900000 12:39:18 [9348] * updateNoteWhenIdleForMillis=30000 12:39:18 [9348] * updateNoteDuringEditIntervalMillis=60000 What is up with that - did someone add an extra couple (or more) zeros for testing purposes and forget to remove them? Is this peculiar to my installation? Or am I misreading what the above details refer to? Syncing is also taking a long time. Syncing, exiting using the menu (file/exit) didn't help. The same thing happened when I tried to use the menu to access the tag list dialog. 6.5.4.4720 (304720) Public. I use this way of tagging notes a lot, and some of them may include a lot of tags, which makes the alternative methods a PITA. Note added: I turned off instant sync in the options, and the expected activity for CTRL-ALT-T is restored.
  10. Eureka! I figured it out. My knowledge of HTML as implemented by Evernote was lacking: the code I needed was to replace table tags with <table style="width: 100%; table-layout: fixed; border: 1px solid rgb(0, 0, 0)"> <tr> <td style="width: 100%; table-layout: fixed; border: 1px solid rgb(0, 0, 0)"> Obviously, for the individual cells, only the td code needs to be inserted. Hope this helps someone else!
  11. Sorry for the delayed response. Yeah, that's the behavior I expected, but it doesn't work - even after a very busy week and being out of town for the last couple of days. Almost as if there is a cache somewhere that is preventing the code from syncing. It is showing up correctly in the history file on the desktop version, but not on the displayed version. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this issue further would be much appreciated. Looks like it might be a "feature" of my particular set-up?
  12. @csihilling, thank you. I realized that the "problem" is not with tables that I insert, but with tables that come from other web pages. I guess the work-around is to add border="1" in the enex file - unfortunately, the change shows up on the iOS version, and the web version, but has not yet sync'ed to the desktop version (neither have other changes to the text, but tags did sync). I have tried syncing several times, too. Would be nice if Evernote could detect when there are borders and add them, or allow the user to add or remove them within the desktop version.
  13. Please also give me the option to add borders to my table if I wish to do so. It is not easy to tell where the last row of the table ends and the following text begins.
  14. This sounds like a great option. However, I have 2 questions. 1. If I delete a note that had a large attachment, is the corresponding .attachment file also deleted? There doesn't seem to be a way of distinguishing between "active" attachments and those that belong to deleted notes, 2. Is everyone aware of the need to back up the .attachment folder if backing up the database?
