  1. 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".
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 would seem applications like Mac's Finder or Windows Locate32 or Everything would be useless.
  5. AFAIK, all the iOS web clippers are third party apps - not Evernote products. So you would need to take this up with the developers of the third party app.
  6. 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.
  7. Evernote does not sync device to device. All syncing goes through the Evernote servers. So although I'm not familiar with Scannable, it's doubtful it is able to sync bypassing the Evernote servers.
  8. What client??? Using the Windows or Mac desktop client, you can select one or more notes & export them. But you can only export to html or enex, not csv.
  9. 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 posts by people arguing "against Evernote providing this feature", surely you can dredge up at least one post...??? Rather than just flapping your proverbial gums. YAWN.
  10. 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".

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. And after nearly 7 years, there are those who regularly misquote what other users have said in order to fit their own agenda. Sad, but true. As requested, please cite where anyone (ANYONE) has argued against EN adding this feature. Otherwise, you look like a fool.
  11. Thank you for the best laugh I've had all week. I suggest you educate yourself before making yourself look so foolish (on so many levels) ever again. Good luck.
  12. 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.
  13. Once again... Please get back on topic. The topic is not whether or not you like my posts. Thank you.
  14. Dear, you really do need to develop a thicker skin and not take things so personally. Perhaps this thread can get back on topic...???
  15. My comments are not confrontational or argumentative. In order to understand and explain, it's best to use accurate verbiage.
  16. 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.
  17. The exception to this is if you regularly edit large notes, since editing existing notes goes against the upload limit. For text & small notes, this is probably negligible. IE, if you have a PDF or a photo that is 500 megs & you upload it, you've used 500 megs. Then you modify the PDF or the image & sync again, you've now used a total of 1000 megs upload, but are only using 500 megs of storage.
  18. Yes & no. It indirectly limits what you can upload & store in a single month. But ultimately, the storage is unlimited. IE, if you use up all 4 gigs of upload three months in a row, you now have 12 gigs of storage you are using.
  19. I know GM has other issues with Evernote (like encryption & scalability). But I know for me (and I think GM), I don't mind using some workarounds. But I got tired of having to use workarounds only to find that new client "upgrades" or feature regression (especially when not forewarned like the fairly recent yank of notebook sharing, which they eventually reinstated) made the workarounds no longer viable. I know for me, that type of thing was the straw that broke the camel's back & caused me to migrate away from Evernote.
  20. At one point, Evernote maintained they were striving for feature parity across all platforms. One more reason those of us who have used Evernote for many years and had confidence in the company were willing to put up with these types of inconsistencies. AFAIK, they never achieved this elusive feature parity and with the various rewrites & updates of the clients, it would seem it's not a priority.
  21. 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 & download or not. In the case I mentioned above, the developer was a well respected member of the Evernote message board & so we all knew it was ok to download.
  22. Oh NO!!! Then I guess it's really not true that the survival of the angry birds is at stake...??? ARGHHHHH!!!! I've been hoodwinked! So, let me see if I have the Evernote business plan figured out: 1. Take a product people generally love and re-design it into something that people generally hate (and lose some of the users data in the process) 2. Stick your head in the sand and ignore your users as they clamor for help and for EN to give some sort of clue as to their next steps are going to be. 3. Suddenly, reappear on the message board to provide snarky replies to users that have become so completely fed up with the service that they feel they have to vent. 4. ??? 5. Profit Good luck with that. EN is becoming a case study in how not to run a company! FYI, this is a *user*s board. I do not work for Evernote. The original post is silly. Nothing he/she has posted and claims are LIES by Evernote is prosecution worthy. It's puffery & perfectly legal. Actually, the award winning part is accurate. Fed up users would be better served to post rational posts. Furthermore, I did not "suddenly reappear" (or even suddenly appear) on the message board. Thanks for the good luck wishes, though.
