  1. Yup. It's my understanding EN is rolling out "note locking". This would not allow "multiple people to be working on the same note" simultaneously. And as Gaz said, I'm not sure this avoids the conflicting note problem if you're all logging into the same account. It may require the note to be shared & users accessing that note from multiple accounts. This may SEEM like a "simple idea". But I doubt the implementation is not.
  2. Um, no we don't. We don't because it doesn't matter why. The bottom line is it is not. So what the user needs to do is decide what they need to do. Use EN for non sensitive info? Use local notebooks for sensitive into? Use another app?
  3. AFAIK, this has yet to be fixed. Around July, I submitted ticket # 627563 on this issue. One would think this would be a pretty high priority...
  4. The following is discussing notebook names but applies to titles, tags, stacks, etc. You can have 250 notebooks. And if you used numbers incremented by 1, that would be 001-250. Using 001 - 999 would be 999 notebooks.A better alternative, if you were to use this method, would be to use say, 00100, 00200, 00300, 00400, etc. as the prefix. That way, you can add notebooks in between 00100 & 00200 by using 00120 or 00150 without having to renumber all the subsequent notebooks.I use this method often, for one particular hobbyist project I have., where I want to force the files to sort in the order I want them.
  5. It's not only about logging into the OS, anyone with a basic IT skill set (and a screwdriver) can access a hard drive. But again, Evernote leaves the security up to the computer owner. One can elect to place one's EN database in an encrypted container...or not. As has been mentioned security has already been discussed at great length on the message board. Please search the board on the topic, if you are so inclined. Good luck with finding an app that suits your needs.
  6. And your point is...??? It shows you have a stack named Fotografie. Fotografie is not a notebook. It is a stack. Under that stack is a notebook (not a sub notebook) named Lightroom that has four notes. You cannot make a sub notebook under "lightroom" b/c there are no sub-notebooks in Evernote. Never has been.
  7. There are not (nor have there ever been) subnotebooks in Evernote. A note exists in one notebook & one notebook only. Notebooks can be grouped in stacks. Stacks cannot contain stacks or notes. They only group notebooks.
  8. I don't understand what you mean by rearranging a notebooks "structure". Do you mean the way it's sorted (created date/modified date)? (There is no "structure" associated with a notebook. Sorting applies to the notes in the results pane. That could be a single notebook or all notes or a subset of all notes or a subset of notes in a notebook or notes with the same tag(s), etc, etc, etc.)
  9. Then you stumbled upon a third party app. There is never, repeat never, a charge from Evernote to export your data out from Evernote. I'm sorry, did I offend you? Did u miss the part when I said 'All the option that have been provided needed to pay a sum of money to export the amount of notes that I had'(I blame the keyboard ) I don't think I mentioned anywhere that they were options provided by Evernote.. I can't imagine why you think you offended me and no, I did not miss any part, thankyouverymuch. I am simply clarifying your post for you. If your post had been more explicit (IE, if you *had* mentioned you were talking about a third party option), it would not have needed clarification for others who are reading this thread. I can't imagine why you would object to that.

  11. Ok...it's just you. It's always helpful to mention what client(s) you're using, when asking for help. Highlighting is available in some (many?) clients. I know in the Windows desktop, highlighting is available.
  12. This is a user's board. You did a big boo boo. Users can often help others, but under the circumstances, it's pretty hard to help you without knowing if you have a backup or if you've sync'd. (Two questions I asked that you did not answer). If you choose to go deleting things without a backup, that's your choice, but there may be issues...like lost notes. If you want official EN support, submit a support ticket (see my sig). Oh, and you'll need to have a premium account.
  13. Did you sync the Mac? If not and you don't have any local (non-sync'd notebooks), you can just rebuild your database on your Mac. (Please search the board on the topic.) Actually, on second thought, you would probably be better served to work with support, to rebuild your database. If you did sync, I'm guessing unless you have a recent backup, you're pretty much out of luck. If you have those notes on another device, don't sync the device & submit a support ticket. EN may (emphasis on the word 'may') be able to help you retrieve them from your other device. Don't try to email them to yourself b/c I think that will cause EN on the device to sync. The exception may be if you can set the device to only sync on wifi, disconnect from wifi & use non-wifi to email them (IE on your phone or if you have an iPad with 3g/4g/whatever). If you don't have them on another device, do you have a recent backup of your Mac database that may contain those notes? Notes can be restored from a recent backup. There are viable instructions on the message board, if you do a search. However, under the circumstances, it may be best if you worked with support. Good luck.
  14. As a CUSTOMER too, it really doesn't MATTER to me if you see the POINT or not. This is the lunacy of expressing one's desire for (very reasonable) evernote features here. Good thing to express it cause that's what forums are about. You might get pain-in-the-ass workarounds which is good, but your job is done in terms of expressing evernotes lack in the area because you'll never get insight from evernote on the matter... as they don't value responding to users about these things. Dont carry on with the evangelists about it because it usually ends like this. It "ends like this" b/c of the way the other person started it. And quite frankly, I see nothing wrong with my reply. Former evangelists are free to speak their opinions, just as regular ol' users are.

  16. I'm starting by eliminating exb files. I think that's probably true. EN used to stress, in the past, that it was a *personal* tool and that they weren't interested in making it an enterprise tool. When they introduced EB, it was quite a surprise & seemed they were moving in a direction they had seemed to publicly say they were avoiding. I'm honestly not sure what direction they are going now & I'm not sure they do, either. https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/14830-evernote-jumps-the-shark/?p=71909
  17. Sentinel, I appreciate you going public with your experience. Although I 'liked' your post, it's hard to like what it conveyed. Several of the issues you mentioned are things some of the "formerly-known-as-evangelists" (including me) tried to discuss with Evernote privately several months ago. We received no reply of substance. Especially concerning were things like the mysterious notes being added to accounts, local notebooks being sync'd, removing features and without warning. It would have been much better for Evernote to go public with these things rather than try to sweep them under the rug, which tends to foster suspicion. For about six years, up until about six months ago, I'd bet there were no users that were more supportive of Evernote than I was. I've posted more than a couple of times on the board that I use Evernote at least once every hour I'm on a computer/iPad & really even more than that. (And I'm on a computer a LOT each & every day!) I used to "feed" Evernote with photos while shopping of things I may want to get. Or prices of items for price comparison. I felt I had a rapport with a few of the employees. But these issues, along with my own (previously discussed) problems of scalability (making large accounts essentially useless) and newly introduced bugs (notebook sharing/ghost notes) topped off with the incommunicado stance of Evernote has caused me to lose all confidence in the company. I feel like I've lost a good friend. I think the concept of Evernote's tags was brilliant and it's difficult for me to adapt to Onenote, since I'm migrating away from Evernote. For me, I've given up on trying to "get through" to those in charge at Evernote. I tried for a few months & after receiving no reply of substance & continuing to see more & more things going awry, I decided it's time for me to move on. Hopefully, this is just a rough patch that is part of their growing pains. I hope that in a year or two, Evernote will return to the great product that it was for many years. If so, I will be very happy to return.
  18. And you're confusing his request for how he'd like it to be used with a statement about how easy it would be to implement. I mean, come on...you can't honestly think that's what he meant, do you? You and BurgersNFries immediately pounce on people asking for this feature and defend Evernote's programmers as if they are gentle flowers that can't possibly cope with customer requests. I've been involved in enough communities to know that you both see yourselves as being helpful (and I'm sure you answer a lot of questions elsewhere here), but honestly, from an outsider's perspective, you both come across as pretty hostile here to anyone who's raising their hand and asking for this feature. It's not your job to tell other Evernote customers why we shouldn't be asking for this feature. Ok, please point out where ANYONE has said people should not ask for this feature. I'm pretty sure you can't b/c I'm pretty sure no one has said that. You say we are "confusing his request". Well, all we have to go on is his words. And yeah, from his words, it seems he thinks this is simple.
  19. You have GOT to be kidding?!?!?!! As s2sailor said, you are confusing UI with actual "programming". It's kind of like me telling the guy at Discount Tire to change my tires vs the work actually involved in changing my tires. It's pretty easy to arm chair quarterback. Yes, EN currently provides encryption...for text only. Simply b/c text encryption exists doesn't mean that can easily be applied to an entire notebook (or even just a note) that may contain images, PDFs, MP4s, etc. and sync & work well across multiple platforms.

  21. Well, Evernote is a cloud app... If you don't want a cloud app, then Evernote may not be the app for you. Secondly, it would appear you not only forgot your password but set up an account with an email address you no longer have access to, since you're not getting the "forgot password" email. (I'm assuming you've checked your spam folder?) That's not Evernote's fault. Third, if you simply close the app (instead of logging out), you don't need to log in to get access into the app. https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/66740-login-when-offline/
  22. I am setting one up where alternatives can be discussed as well as tips & tricks for migrating to Onenote. I will share what I am learning. Anyone who is interested, please PM me. I will let you know when it's ready (won't be today - possibly tomorrow). To clarify, I am setting up an alternative site to discuss these issues freely, solely out of respect for the fact that this is the Evernote forum. I think it's in poor taste to discuss the finer details of leaving EN on their own message board. IMO, it's a bit like setting up a date with your new boyfriend while your old boyfriend is still in the room, packing up his stuff. EDIT: BTW, the forum I'm working on is also open to EN staff. I realize it's a bit of a conflict of interest. But maybe it's also something you'd find interesting/helpful, too. You're not prohibited from joining. I just don't want to utilize EN's resources to discuss this topic . I promise I won't let anyone flame you. It's up & running. If I missed sending you the URL, please let me know.
  23. You cannot selectively sync notebooks to a Windows client. In this case, I would suggest you either use the web client at work or continue to share notebooks from one account to the work account. However, I've had issues with sharing notebooks between accounts. (Search the board on "ghost notes", for more info.) But if it works for you, then great. Another (safer, IMO) option is to have a totally separate account for work. Evernote is free. You only need to pay for a premium account, if you need the premium features.
