  1. Evernote does not scale well. At all. In the past, I was an ardent user of Evernote. Used it every single day. But then my main account became unusable on iOS and the Windows desktop about two years ago. I did all the things EN recommended...new hard drive, upgrade OS, rebuild database, etc, etc, etc. I had to create a second account in order to use EN on my phone, iPad and PC. The same computers and iPhone & iPad that couldn't use the main account worked just fine with my new account. Due to other EN bugs, I finally migrated away from Evernote to Onenote. Don't like it as well,
  2. The takeaway here and across all other threads asking for features is that: 1) It's fine to request certain features 2) It doesn't matter whether any of us think the missing feature should have been included from the get go b/c it's "basic" or whether it should be easy to add or whether it should be added & those who don't want it/need it don't have to use it, etc. The decision is ultimately up to Evernote. It's their product & their livelihood on the line. 3) Simply requesting a feature (even if it's been requested for many years, by hundreds of users) is no guarantee the feature
  3. It's an ad-hoc thing. Fiddling about sharing with myself from an additional account sounds a right PITA. I just want to click a button "Make Read Only", "Protect from Changes" or whatever. KD Since there is not a way to do what you want & there is no way to know if Evernote will add this or not (since they do not discuss their roadmap), Jeff is simply offering you an alternate way to do what you are wanting to do (write protect notes). Hence the term "workaround".
  4. I want to know the method to protect the NOTEBOOK & Documents so that no user can delete it. Is it possible in evernote please guide how?It is not possible.
  5. Other ways are discussed in order to inform users of, well, other viable ways that are currently available to protect sensitive information. We are users, just like yourself. So unless & until Evernote decides to add a password to their desktop apps, other methods are all that are available to users.
  6. Nested notebooks/folders are anything but intuitive or logical, for the reasons Gaz mentioned above. Jefito's classic example is if I have a red, round, rubber ball, do I file it under things that are red? Things that are round? Things that are rubber? Things that are toys? This becomes more complex the more notes you have. If you have only a few hundred notes, then it may be pretty easy to retrieve them by digging around in nested notebooks/folders. But if you have tens of thousands of notes, it becomes a nightmare. If we came out of the womb knowing to use nested notebooks/folders, then it w
  7. Yes. If you upgrade to premium, you will have access to previous note history. Note history is only taken once about every eight hours. But if the good note had been on the EN servers at least that long before you sync'd the accidental change, there should be a good copy in the note history. And you will have access to that, after upgrading.
  8. And after nearly 7 years, there are those who regularly ignore requests to back up what they say. Really? Who? Do try to be specific when making vague claims like this. Anyways, yawn. Nothing new to see here. Don't know what you mean by "yawn". Do try to be specific when making vague claims like this. If this is boring to you, then why bother posting a reply that adds no value? If you don't get the significance of many users continuing to request this feature after 7 years, then I don't think anyone can explain it to you. If there is seven years worth of pos

  10. I disagree that very little has changed, for the reasons you mention. IMO, a lot has changed and for the worst. Overall decline in quality, removing key features with no warning (sharing, support for free users - which, BTW was silently implemented with no mention by Evernote for several MONTHS eventhough it was a hot topic amongst users on this board), support for premium users seems to be pretty poor now, too) and overall, divorcing themselves from their users.
  11. Once again... Please get back on topic. The topic is not whether or not you like my posts. Thank you.
  12. Dear, you really do need to develop a thicker skin and not take things so personally. Perhaps this thread can get back on topic...???
  13. My comments are not confrontational or argumentative. In order to understand and explain, it's best to use accurate verbiage.
  14. I'm pretty sure no one is saying there is not a need. What is being said, is that Evernote has stated publicly they had no plans to make a linux client & there has been no evidence they have changed that opinion.
  15. I'm not saying it's NOT a bad file. But IME, Windows stating a file is "suspicious" doesn't necessarily mean the file is bad. It just means Windows doesn't know about this file. I remember this was discussed on the board previously regarding some other third party software. Let's say I write a Windows app that is virus/malware free, but is only downloaded by a (relatively) small portion of Windows users, Windows may not know that it is an ok file & simply reports it as "suspicious". It is then up to the user to do their due diligence (which is what you are doing) an decide to go ahead &
  16. In addition to the points brought up by subsequent posts, I would add that probably a majority of Evernote users are not limiting their use to a single Windows computer and not interested in making distributables. (Duh). I'm sure there may be a few...but in general, not so much. Which was the initial allure of Evernote and now Onenote with Onecloud. And to reiterate, developers are welcomed warmly on the board...so long as they are clear about their involvement with the app. But those who pose as "satisfied customers"... Not so much. So if Regatzo is (the sole) employee/dev of the app he
  17. Evernote does not have nested notebooks. Stacks (the Evernote term) can *group* notebooks. But stacks cannot contain notes or other stacks.
  18. No one has said your request is "useless or senseless". The main point is that that the main determinant is with Evernote. It's a fact of life with any software. Those who are responsible for it must make a determination if they want to add it (or not). And if they want to add it, it must be put into a priority list.
  19. They could. They could do a lot of things. Whether they do or not is an entirely different matter. It may be they plan to do it but it's a low priority. Or they may decide they simply don't want to add it, for whatever reason.
  20. Note history is taken once about every eight hours. If your note was a new note, there may not be a previous version, yet.
  21. IMO, it's very risky to store anything important on only a mobile device. It's risky enough to have something stored only in one place anyway (IE on your desktop computer with no backups) b/c devices fail. You'd better have a backup somewhere of the important stuff. And of course, small, mobile devices are even riskier since they are more easily lost, stolen or broken. If the info isn't important and/or sensitive, then the only reason I could think of why someone wouldn't want to sync is data charges. In that case, simply use a notes app that is restricted to your device.
