  1. maybe if I spell it this way: "cueer". Seriously!?  Is this some sort of "naughty word" filter, like the bleeps on TV?  It's not even a "naughty word".  Actually the English use it much more often than Americans, and don't seem to have a problem with it..

    That word is often considered a slur against the ***** community. There are other acceptable words that get "bleeped" out since the filter can't determine the context used. IE. I think these words get bleeped: c-r-a-p, s-c-r-e-w. It's certainly easy enough to edit your post to use a different word.

  2. Mata Hari (aka minkowski) is always contentious with people who reply to his posts. He has often posted how much he hates Evernote and even prefers Word over Evernote (???). So it would seem his participation on this board is to simply be a troll.

    As Gaz stated, this topic has been discussed before and Evernote has made it abundantly clear, they are not interested in having feature polling. (Please use the search function, if you care to read the existing threads). That's not to say they wouldn't change their mind. But there is nothing to support that theory, especially since Evernote has always been very close to the vest about everything. Since they don't publish their roadmap or ETAs, it's doubtful they would be interested in feature polling any time soon.

    One more thing...


    Also, just as an aside, Gazumped- every comment of yours on the forums that I've seen seems like a conscious effort to deflate whatever wish someone has for the software.

    Gaz is a long time user of Evernote and this board. He has a realistic feel for what Evernote may or may not do. It is much better to let someone know if a feature is likely to be added or not. That way, the user can make an informed decision on whether they want to continue to use Evernote or not or adopt a workaround that is viable for them.

  3. Are you looking for Evernote customer service support helpline for inspirational ideas contact phone number? No problem all you need to do is just pick up your phone, and get the answer of all the questions in your mind. Bring your life's work together in one digital workspace. Evernote is the place to collect inspirational ideas, write meaningful words, and more. Evernote's customer service representatives are always ready to answer all the possible queries in your mind. The phone number given above is the best way in order to speak or live chat with Evernote technical or sales department quickly.



    I very much doubt that is a real Evernote phone number

    Agreed. The user's profile does not indicate he/she is an Evernote employee. Plus, to date, Evernote has never offered phone support except I think Evernote Business did...but am not sure.

  4. Version 2 files are definitely NOT compatible with later versions of Evernote. If you cannot find a copy of V2 through something like Filehippo, then it would seem your only option is to upgrade from a free Evernote account, if you haven't already, and submit a support ticket. I'm not 100% sure they would be able to get you a copy, since that version has not been supported for over six years. But if you do get a copy, then you would need to also get a copy of 3.x in order to migrate from the 2.x database. And there may even be another update you'd need to do, since I think the 3.x database is not compatible with the latest versions, either.

  5. If I have ideas or suspicions that might be helpful to the user, I will share,

    Your opinion on Gaz (and all the other fellow users you take issue with) & his (their) posts is not helpful to users. Once again, please stop nitpicking on every leetle, teeny, tiny thing you don't like about other users. It takes the thread off topic and is not helpful at all.

  6. If thee with 11,000+ posts here can't get s straight answer, what chance me with a mere 40 odd ;).

    I guess I could write a command file to flood a note book with 100K v. small notes and see what happens when I share it with another account with its own 100K note notebook. Would have thought one of the bright sparks an EN HQ could do that and publish the results in their blog.

    EN should change the pricing model - differentiate products by features with annual fee for non free. Everyone pays for extra storage and traffic at the same rates. Get rid of the counting limits (i.e. notes, stacks, notebooks, tags etc) or make them all a ridiculously large number - 264 should be big enough for us mere mortals, we don't need negative numbers :lol:


    Based upon my own personal experience (documented more than a few times on this board), when you get closer to 100,000 notes, you will regret it. Evernote does not scale well at all. It becomes totally unusable (no exaggeration) at least on the Windows and iOS clients.

  7. JM - The fact I have a different opinion from yours doesn't make me an Evernote ringer or, necessarily, wrong. Do have a nice day now.

    There's not a darned thing wrong or misleading in your posts Gaz. I don't know why JMiU must regularly argue with the other users he doesn't like. But it's distracting (NOISE) and takes the thread totally off topic.

    @Gaz: You have contributed as much as anyone to "scaring the audience".

    If you'll look back over the posts, I make a joke about reinstalling, and then suggested that the user submit a bug report.

    It was you that started this whole debate about bugs by making the rebuttal comment "I don't think this qualifies as a 'bug'", when you didn't have the factual basis or logic to make such a claim.

    You can move on by stop trying to make me look like the bad guy, and just deal with the technical issues as we agreed to earlier.

    You do a darned good job of making yourself look like the bad guy. Let's see...this week alone, you've nitpicked with csihilling:https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/80104-manual-sorting-and-the-design-objection/page-2#entry345419

    Jefito & GM:https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/41178-evernote-annoyance-creating-sub-folders/page-3

    And Gaz. (And I've not even linked to the various threads - this week alone).

    Maybe you should step away from the keyboard & take a lot of deep breaths, since you seem to be a huge contributor of (to use your term), noise.

    And the madness continues...JMiU please stop arguing about and nitpicking EVERY SINGLE THING THAT someone you don't like says. MOVE ON.https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/80104-manual-sorting-and-the-design-objection/?p=346772

  8. Hi,


    It would be a great feature if I can also read my Evernote desktop'note with the Kindle.




    For Kindle Fires, download the EN app from the App Store. For dedicated Kindle ereaders, email the desired note(s) to your Amazon Kindle account. (Google this, if you need instructions). IIRC, you may need to print the notes to PDF before emailing to your Kindle...I don't remember. It's doubtful there will ever be an Evernote app for dedicated Kindle ereaders.

  9. Is there a way to alphabetize your notes within a notebook?

    Notes don't have a specific place in a notebook. It depends upon how you're sorting the results. If you give each note an accurate note title and then sort by title, they will be in alphabetical order.

    I'd also suggest you remove your email address from your post.

  10. By the way, if we're talking about cloud data lockers, Amazon is now down to 60 dollars for unlimited data.

    I have been using Amazon S3 servers via Jungledisk UI for many years now (at least 7). IDK offhand how much space I use, but I think it's safe to say I use more than most of the average Joes b/c I tend to be a "virtual hoarder" and have documents, files, photos and even home movies I've been collecting for about 25 years now. What used to cost me ~$90/month is now down to $40.

  11. As DP said, as a Premium member you do have the option of Live Chat, which is open Mon to Fri, 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM, CST. However, I am pretty sure DutchPete is mistaken about only being able to access it within the EN Web app.

    Yes, chat is accessed from the Evernote website, not the web client. Two entirely different things.

  12. I'm going nuts here. Help please. I had an evernote premium account that has expired. I would like to renew this account using the same email address(a student email), however I am a student and I noticed on the retailmenot.com site Evernote premimium is free for students. I cannot find a specific link on the Evernote site (to sign up as a student). On top of this , there is no 800 number to call for customer service at Evernote. Does anyone an ideas?



    Evernote is free for everyone.  OTOH, Evernote premium is not free for anyone, AFAIK.  The exception of course, is if you get a voucher when you've purchased another product or something like that.  You can still access your account & notes, but it would have reverted to a free account.

  13. I accidentally used evernote while trying to save .ppt file from dropbox account. Because it was 57mb and I already used some mb before, I bought evernote plus so I could upload the file and another notes (evernote plus gives 1gb data limit). The problem is this annoying message, saying that the note (with 57mb file) I tried to upload is too big anyway. What's even worse, I deleted this big .ppt file but the message shows up every time I write a new note (even empty!), making me mad and preventing me from using evernote. How do I fix this?

    Did you empty the trash?

  14. Don't want to be a wet blanket, but I think once you've deleted a note, cleared trash and synced everywhere, that you can get at history anymore.  As a user anyway.  I would be plenty okay to be corrected....  :(

    AFAIK, that is correct. That's why I rarely emptied the trash. When I did, I'd make a backup of my database before emptying the trash. IMO, there are not too many reasons for emptying the trash, since any synced notes have already used up your upload limit & clearing trash doesn't free any of it up.

  15. Evernote is not a backup program. Evernote is an app to collect, organize & retrieve your notes. It syncs to a cloud so you can access those notes from a variety of computers and/or platforms. And yes, users should backup their Evernote databases, if the information is valuable to them.

     Thanks I kinda realised what EVERNOTE is (have been using it for three or four years and am (was?) a big fan

    Well your statement below suggests otherwise...

    Please explain why EVERNOTE users have to have their own backup  - I know I  should  always backup but I thought EVERNOTE was a backup option   Why should I use EVERNOTE if I can simply back everything up

    Good luck.

  16. I am concerned. Why did I just get asked if I have TIMEMACHINE backup I thought my notes were safe? So have I lost them and they are not retrievable?

  17. I switched to OneNote in the end. Usually not a Microsoft fan (being mostly a Mac user) but they have done an exceptional job on OneNote. If you use it with OneDrive you can get up to 30GB free cloud storage too and no need to worry about taking up space and being charged (for going over) Evernote's limited space. Password protection on sections too.

    But anyway, thats's a different discussion.

    I switched from Evernote to Onenote last year. I got Office 365 (annual subscription) which includes free updates of the Office suite software and one terabyte of cloud storage. Onenote doesn't work as well for me as Evernote USED to. But Evernote does not scale well. They are aware of this and have continued to not address the problem. It got to the point where EN simply would not work on my PC, iPhone or iPad due to the large number of notes I had (66,000+) I had. So for me, the $100/year for the version of Office 365 I signed up for was worth it, since I had two EN premium accounts. But as you say, that's a different discussion.

  18. Is it worth paying PREMIUM? When I was a FREE member I got HELP queries answered quite quickly However now I am a PREMIUM member I don't.


    BUT two weeks +  ago I "lost" all my notes (8,000 over 4 years)  I still have no resolution and no response to last two HELP tickets  I have been patient and not flooded HELP DESK - I also don't seem to have access to LIVE HELP. I have "LOST" notes on two occasions when I was a free member and got talked through exactly what to do.  My initial response from HELP DESK was not helpful and my follow-up led me nowhere?  Should I simply close my account and claim money back? I am a big fan of EVERNOTE so would be sorry to have to move away but there are some important notes I have lost that are hampering me in my business


     I just the comment on the forum (which, at this stage. I have to disagree with Has anyone any pointers to stop my impending divorce from Evernote please?

    • Premium makes a difference. We aim to have fast response times for all submitted tickets, but in times of higher than normal volume, being Premium will ensure you get to the front of the line.

    Evernote's support used to be stellar, even for free users. They have discontinued support for free users, telling them to come to this users message board for help. And even one of the newer EN staff who occasionally posts here, posts replies that indicate either the EN staff did not really read the question and/or did not provide an accurate answer. Even support for premium users appears to have degenerated as well. You should be able to use the chat feature, if you are premium. But IIRC, chat is only available during certain hours.

    I used to be an avid EN user and advocate. I had over 66,000 notes. But the flavor of the company has changed over the past couple of years. Since Evernote has continued to not address the issue of scalability (which caused the EN app to become unusable on my Windows PC, my iPad & iPhone), I migrated to Onenote last year. Unfortunately, Onenote does not work as well for me as Evernote did (when I only had a few thousand notes). But at least it works.

    Good luck.

  19. I think this offline access has changed with the new plans. Now, we have losen the offline access in Basic Plan (Free). I think it will be a reason to say bye bye to evernote..

    Did you even read this thread? Free accounts never did have offline notes. Please read the posts above.

    Sure, Until now I have my notes in a cache in my mobile when I was offline..

    Then it's unclear why you are saying offline access for iOS (which is what this thread is discussing) has been lost (?) for free accounts with the new plans. As discussed above, it never was part of the free plan.
