  1. 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 com
  2. 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.

  4. 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/
  5. 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 sti
  6. 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.
  7. I edited the above post, but just so people know it... 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.

  9. No offense, but I find it sad that someone doesn't know how to use a dictionary and/or fully comprehend the meaning of a word. "Affiliated" is a useful word b/c one does not need to be EMPLOYED by a company in order to get some sort of benefit by promoting a company. I would suggest you make a note of that. It may come in handy someday. https://www.godaddy.com/affiliates/affiliate-program.aspx As to your other comments, it appears you are the one wanting a flame war. Please abide by the forum code of conduct & refrain from name calling/flaming. Thank you. https://discussion.everno
  10. I don't know why you'd say that. GM is correct in his replies. It is the former. My "duet" system was a workaround b/c Evernote does not scale well. My main account (over 62,000 notes & over 35 gigs) is absolutely unusable on the Windows and iOS clients. (Please search the board on 'duet' for more info, if you're interested.) I was having to use the web client on my PC & Clever on my iDevices with my big account & EN Windows client (PC) and iOS app for my daily/duey account. I could share notebooks from the big account to the daily account. But then sharing started being
  11. There are some promising options. But as for me, I'm of tired of migrating over the years through various apps/PIM platforms. I was confident that my migration to Evernote (the first multi-platform, cloud PIM - because back then, EN WAS a PERSONAL information manager) would be the last. Since I was wrong on that count, I'm reluctant to go with anything new or relatively new. So I'm sticking with OneNote. Although I've used ON for many years, in the past, I only used it for brainstorming big/bigger projects. That's where I think ON shines. I preferred EN for my Rolodex, everything I would
  12. As you should know by now, that's very common on this board, since EN does not discuss their roadmap or ETAs. WRT the notebooks, two viable alternatives have already been discussed in other threads on this topic. Either tag the notes with the notebook name or make an enex file for each notebook.
  13. Sorry, but I have already commented on that in this thread (and a few others). I will not remove my comments, but I will also not contribute any more details because... I agree... I know there are some software message boards that will not allow posters to mention the name of competitive products & will edit your post, if you do. (Coffeecup software is one.) Evernote has never done this - they have always allowed other products to be mentioned. However, discussing the finer points of migrating away from the service is quite different from simply mentioning other products or discus
  14. Ideally, hundreds of us would show up, but I know that's not feasible. But honestly, I don't think it would matter, just like none of the discussions other moderators and I had a few months ago with EN staff and just like none of the chatter here on the board has made an impact. (Ok, maybe it's made an impact, but nothing that's visible to us...which would be important, since so many (including me) are either abandoning EN or reducing our reliance upon it.) But at least we'd be going down with a fight. IMO, Libin may still be the figurehead, but someone else is pulling the strings. But w

  16. WRT ON's screen cap...I've been using Evernote's screen cap. On the Windows client, invoke EN screen cap & do your drag...but before letting up on the mouse, hold CTRL & then release mouse button. This sends the clip to the clipboard where you can paste it into ON (or any other app you happen to be using). I have SnagIt. But since I normally have EN running, this is just easier. FWIW, although I've contributed to this thread, out of respect to Evernote, I think it's best to discuss some of the finer points of migrating away from EN NOT on their message board. I was hoping to look
  17. Well, lo & behold, about Thursday morning, my Duet account (the account I had to create b/c Evernote could no longer handle my main account b/c Evernote really doesn't scale well. Search the board on 'duet' for more info) started not syncing notes/changes UP. It will sync things emailed or clipped to it DOWN from the EN servers. But nothing is going UP. Sync always ends with the red icon with the exclamation point over the sync button. This has been going on for several days now & persists even with rebooting my computer. I've dealt with EN long enough to know the SOP is to expor
  18. Please see post #10 and be sure you have the latest version of the app. Please read the thread through. The answer to your question is in post #10. And yes, if you have an older version (or an unauthorized one), then it may not be the same, in which case, you're on your own.
  19. the former is recommended by snowden. it has zero knowledge encryption and a "canary" system to inform users if the govt. does try and compel them to hand over data. i don't think it matters so much where they are located as long as they are zero knowledge. Additionally, I've heard it doesn't matter where the company is based, but where the servers are located. However, I have no idea if this is accurate or not.
  20. Onenote allows you to save a notebook on your computer only or to the cloud. The thing I've not figured out is how to make local backups of notebooks in the cloud. There is this thread, that I've not had time to study yet: http://windowsitpro.com/onenote/back-skydrive-hosted-onenote-notebooks# Onenote appears to use zero knowledge encryption b/c when I encrypted a notebook, it gives the message "If you lose or forget the password, Onenote cannot recover your data."
  21. Last I knew (a couple of months ago), note counts differed between clients if you have notebooks shared to you. Impossible to get matching note counts unless you unjoined all shared notebooks.
  22. To be clear (and correct), the Evernote web client IS the Evernote Service/cloud and is indeed the "official repository of all sync'd notes". It is NOT just "'one more EN client". That is why there no sync on the web client. The web client has no sync button b/c you're looking at the live EN database on the EN servers. If you've sync'd something from another computer/device, then you simply refresh the browser. I do this all the time. It works fine.
  23. It's very simple. The EN servers (IE web client) are the "source of all truths." Any changes made on one device need to be sync'd up to the EN servers before those changes are accessible from the web client or any other device/computer. If you make any changes with the web client, you are changing the EN servers directly, so no sync (up) is involved. Any changes made to the EN servers need to be sync'd down to any other computer/device before they are accessible from that device/computer.If you create/modify a note on a desktop/laptop & then shut down w/o it getting sync'd to the EN se
