  1. Local (non-sync'd) notebooks only exist on Mac & Windows desktop clients.
  2. I'm sure some folks here have used Google docs. Not sure what your point is, though. Just b/c one app does something one way doesn't mean all other similar type apps need to do the same thing. Google docs does what you need/want & Evernote does not. Sounds like you should stick with Google docs. As Jefito has said, "That's why there's chocolate & vanilla."
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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...
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.)
  11. 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, i

  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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 your
  16. 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

  18. Sorry, but my brain is NOT "simply built" to use a hierarchical system & I don't think anyone else's is either, including yours. When I am wanting to remember how to remotely boot a unix system, I don't mentally drill down from "drive letter/computer/unix/commands/remote boot" (or something similar). I simply think "what is the syntax for remotely booting a unix?" The hierarchical system is an artificial tool, which is helpful in some situations, like when you are filing a hard copy of a bill or receipt. But it's not how human brains work at all.
  19. 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
  20. IMO, the validity of testing is not the issue. Nor is a price increase. The issue is disrespecting/insulting your users by secretly trying to charge a select group of users more than the advertised price and hoping they don't notice and wanting them to keep it "on the down low" when you're called out. If you have to treat your customers this way for "valid test results", then I would suggest there's something very wrong with your thinking and maybe the thing to be concerned about is something other than getting valid test results. Evernote used to be a company that seemed to hold their cust
  21. Grumpy, I'm not sure I would call this an Easter Egg, since those are commonly sought after, fun surprises. An Easter egg version of this would be for someone to be able to get a year of premium for less than the advertised amount. Not more. (JMO)
  22. So...you're banking on your users not noticing the "selective, secret" price increase & that they would not mention it on message boards, blogs, etc. Hmmm...
  23. I wonder if this is a Canadian thing? I checked the website & it still shows $45 for me. I logged into the web client with one of my free accounts & the price there also was still $45. Again, an announcement would be helpful...
  24. 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
