  1. Sorry, but I'm stunned that not only did this horribly broken web clipper release make it out of dev, it made it out of QA, made it to staging, and then - beyond belief - into production where millions (maybe?) of people's browser's happily autoupdated to it, and people got locked out of using webclipper thenceforth. Thankfully, when this cropped up for me in firefox, I simply clicked through to the reviews for the addon, and a nice person had posted a link to a release a couple of revs back. install it, turn OFF autoupdates, and I can use webclipper again. My additional question would be 'why haven't you pulled this completely broken release so that countless new stooges don't wind up with their webclipper rendered nonfunctional' - but after a cluster like dev -> qa -> staging -> production and now "investigation" - I've no confidence I'd get anything remotely like a straight answer. jebus. you jack prices to the moon, then you start pushing out buggy code to PRODUCTION. Have all the project/product managers quit, or what? is anybody minding the store?
  2. So, I've run into what may - or may not - be a bug that began in 6.10 beta 2: throughout countless notes that I've written by hand - ampersands are converted into their html markup version. So, text that was written in a note as: salt '' cmd.run 'cd /usr/local/src && tar -xzf monit-5.20.0.tar.gz && cd monit-5.20.0 && (etc) when copied and then pasted becomes: salt '' cmd.run 'cd /usr/local/src && tar -xzf monit-5.15.tar.gz && cd monit-5.15 && This seems to happen if any text styling was applied to the text after the fact - put the highlighter on it, make it bold, whatever. The problem is that it never used to do this. I have hundreds of notes with text formatting employed in some circumstances and not in others. Sure, I can strip off the formatting and then copy - but if there was specific formatting (say, for a pdf document publishing internally for staff) then it mucks that up for future revisions. Now, it occurs to me that this change in behavior may have coincided with upgrading my MBP to MacOS Sierra - but I can't find any mention online of changes to how text is pulled to the clipboard (besides their 'universal clipboard' thing, which I don't employ). oh - and on the off chance my examples above get morphed by any formatting in *this* text editor, I've attached screenshots. any thoughts? (edit - I suppose this may fall under the 'paste and match style' issues above that others have reported...but I'm not entirely certain)
  3. If they tied it to the optional passcode usage, it would pretty well satisfy that I think.
  4. Right. But it is also something that the application vendor can modify, if desired - so any text in that app screen can be obfuscated when displayed in the recent apps list. It would be a desireable feature from my perspective.
  5. Nexus 6, Android 6.0.1, Evernote 7.8.2. I use a Passcode to provide a minimal level of security for all my notes. However, when I go to the 'recent apps' screen, Evernote will happily display a mini copy of whatever note was open when I last used it. This opens a vulnerability for my information. No, 99% of the time it's not going to reveal necessarily private info that would be bad if it were shared, but if I've bothered to set up a passcode in evernote so that any random person who might gain access to my phone will have at least that blocking their access, then it defeats the point of that passcode if what I've recently viewed is displayed clearly on the recent apps screen. It should obfuscate the text in the recent apps screen.
  6. Awesome, thank you so much. Maybe a sticky thread could be created that always has the URL of the absolute latest beta might be handy.
  7. I seem to have somehow buggered up my evernote installation. I'm on OSX Yosemite beta (current as of today). I've downloaded this beta 10 and installed it, but when I try to run Evernote, it reports "Version too old Your local Evernote data is being managed by a newer version of Evernote. Please use the latest version". I've searched here in the forums to see if there's a newer beta than 10 - but the search function doesn't list one. Is there a solution to this?
  8. I wonder if it would be possible to implement a 'remember' feature for pages that one has already clipped. Not infrequently I'll visit a specific page that has some info that's very useful to me. I'll clip the page. A month later I'll be researching that same topic, run across the same page, and not remembering that I clipped it previously, I clip it again. Thus I wind up with duplicate clipped pages. I would think the logic for this would be fairly trivial - if the URL hasn't changed, it's likely that it has the same content. It could perhaps do a very simple diff on some elements of the page to determine if it's the same. Then simply advise 'already clipped on August 16, 2014, to notebook xyz' or some such. Just a thought.
  9. This seems to have been fixed in a more recent version, I think - I'm running Evernote 5.1.4 on OSX 10.8.4, and the field is clickable and editable...
  10. Thanks. This is what happens when someone over 50 has the emotional maturity of only the first digit.
  11. Not sure if I'm being overly sensitive, but the terse reply seems slightly snarky.
  12. I honestly find it quite annoying when - after performing a search, then doing whatever in the results - I click the 'x' to remove the search field, and evernote then pops down the 'Recent Searches' box with all the options for saving searches, etc. If I click the 'x', I want the search field cleared. That's all. If I wanted to look at recent searches, well then I'd start typing in another search query, upon which the 'Recent Searches' box would pop down. The current behavior is counter-intuitive. An 'x' icon next to a search field should clear the search field. Period. Thanks.
  13. i'm new (very new) to evernote. but i'm giving it a whirl. i'm evaluating Alpha Journal 3 for my needs, and it's a nice little app. i'm a systems administrator, and want to keep a 'log' of my daily activities. sort of a diary, sort of a journal. evernote may fill the bill. *however*, rather than creating a new note for each and every task i perform in a given day (which may amount to dozens), i'd rather prefer to create one note per day, and insert the date/time on each new task i enter. alpha journal made that easy with just a simply button you'd click, it'd insert the current time (or date and time if you preferred), and you could then type your entry. perhaps i'm overthinking it, and should instead just create one note per task i perform. i suppose i can give that a try - but either way, it could be nice to have a feature to easily drop the current time into a note...
