  1. Same thing to me. I spent over an hour compiling that note and I just want to cry right now.

    Same, also using Web beta. I clicked "done" after careful drafting for over two hours, and the note is gone gone gone. No trace. Has anyone found a way to retrieve their lost note?

    Honestly people...

    Beta is just that...if you elect to use beta software for important things, then you better get used to being upset with your software.

    If you are premium, you can use chat for support. IDK chat hours, but they are probably on the support screen. IDK if they will be able to help you. Suggestion: if it's important, don't use a beta software & sync/backup often.


  2. Reading some threads under this topic reminded me of something I have wondered about for some time. Why does anyone use the web version? What are the pros/cons? I've been a user for 4 years and premium for 2. I use the Windows version on my laptop and Android on phone and tablet. I've probably been to the web version a dozen times. 

     

    Just wondering. 

     

     

    Meanwhile, just checked out the Web Beta. Very clean and on first blush, useless. If I spent more time on it, I'm sure I would adapt, but hopefully, recommendations will be taken into account before it flows down to Windows version.

    1. Maybe I'm using someone else's computer or a hotel computer.

    2. Maybe I'm using linux.

    3. Maybe my account is so large that the iOS and Windows desktop clients are unusable (my case).

    4. Maybe I have multiple accounts & use one on the desktop client & the other on the web client

    (for starters)

    The web client is better than it used to be, but it is not as robust as the Windows desktop client.


  3. sorry, but you missunderstand me...

     

    see screenshot out of my PC-Desktop EvernoteScreen

     

    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.


  4. Hej BurgersNFries,

     

    thanks for answering me...

     

    I will try again to explain what I mean:

     

    |

    |-----Notebook1

    |            |-------------SubNotebook(1A)

    |                                     |----------------------Note1 etc.

    |            |-------------SubNotebookB(1B)

                 |-------------SubNotebookC(1C)

    |

    |-----Notebook2

    |            |--------------SubNotebook(2A)

    |            |--------------SubNotebook(2B)

     

    etc...

     

    so... how can I move the SubNotebookC(1C) to become a new Home under Notebook2 like

    |

    |------Notebook2

    |           |------------Subnotebook(2A)

    |           |------------Subnotebook(2B)

    |           |-------------------------Subnotebook(1C)

     

    Is it now a little bit clearer to you?

     

    Hope so... :-)

    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.

  5. Hi really thanks for your suggestions. Copy / paste 1000 items is out of question.

     

    Can you suggest a way to migrate all the data from windows PC microsoft outlook account to evernote.

     

    Hopefully after this migration my data will be saved on cloud forever

    Evernote Windows desktop client has (or at least used to have) an 'add to Evernote' button that would be installed in Outlook.


  6. I had the same problem tonight.  I was using Evernote for lecture notes in my evening class, but when I opened it later to review my notes nothing was there, as if I hadn't made any notes today.  I've never had this happen to me.  Evernote usually auto saves, but I know I pressed "Done" before I shut my laptop down.  If this is a problem with the beta, then I can't accept the risk of losing 2.5 hours of notes.

  7. Hej to all,

    in the Web Beta i miss the possibility to move or rearrange a Notebook in it´s structure from "A" to "B".... How can I do this? Or isn´t it implement at this time?

     

    Thanks for answering me...

     

    Best

    Rolf

     

    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.)


  8. Sorry but you have to understand that earlier notes are stored in samsung sduos S7562 model on the main notes menu in c drive of device and not on evernote. So sync will not work in this case. Now i plan to migrate to evernote with old samsung data. Also note the same notes data is also stored in my outlook account on my PC. 

     

    Most likely, the only way you'll get your notes from a different app into Evernote is to either copy/paste or make your own script.  If you were to use a desktop app (Mac/Windows) there are some automated ways to get notes into Evernote...assuming you can get the notes OUT of your current app.  IOW, your main obstacle is to get the notes out of your current note taking software.  But I'd guess you would have considered that before making 1000 notes in an application...  Due diligence & all that.


  9. i just was typing an hour and half's worth of important business notes only to have evernote web totally act like i never logged in (i had) and LOSE THE ENTIRE NOTES I WAS PLANNING TO POST TO THE WEB SITE FOR ALL TO USE. this is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE in trying to use your fercacta tool so i can give information to others in my business.

    ARRRGGGGHHH!!!

    WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY?!!!

    why are there absolutely NO support contacts e-mails for me to e-mail for help with this other than these STUPID community forums which will give me a bunch of non-answers and try and blame me for this LOSS OF TIME AND RESOURCES USING YOUR STUPID PRODUCT!!!

    give me REAL help and GIVE IT NOW!! QUIT DODGING YOUR RESPONSIBILITY EVERNOTE!!

    ANSWER ME!!

    You posted this in the web beta section. Beta is just that...if you elect to use beta software for important things, then you better get used to being upset with your software.

  10. Hello!

     

    I am so unbelievably frustrated! I recently got a Sky Wifi Smartpen and it is neccesary to use EN to support it. I am a student, and after my class I archived my notebook and now I can't upload or synch any notes online? Is my notebook archived for good and I can never add anything to it ever again? Ive read I can't get old information back onto the pen but can I add new information to these notebooks? I connect to wifi, I go to archive it and it says I have already used this paper product and the archive fails.

     

    PLEASE BE POLITE!

     

    IIRC, this is a Livescribe pen & you would probably be better served to address this in the Livescribe message board.


  11. I tried clicking and dragging the notebook over to the disginated one but it didnt work. Also tried right clicking, also didnt work. Tried looking for a button but couldnt locate it (if there is one). Plz help. much obliged.

    Select the notes from one notebook, right click & change to the other notebook from the drop down list.

  12. HI All,

    I have been using the Evernote free version for quit long time in  google chrome browser. Unfortunately today I opted for the web beta version which has became a real headache for me specially the absence of the "merge" note options. I desperately want to get back the older version. Can anybody Please help in this regard?

    This has been posted at least a few times. Did you search the board on the topic???


  13. I've only ever visited these forums once, and that was when I was trying to export my data from Evernote to a format that I thought I coud work with. All the option that have been provided needed to pay a sum of money to export the amount of notes that I had.

    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 :P )

    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.

  15. In EN on my mac, it is set to sync every fifteen minutes. Will this also be the case for my version on my iphone? Tks

    Evenote (on any computer/device) only syncs when the app is running. On the iPhone, it syncs when you open the app and after you make a change or add a new note. AFAIK, there is no sync time setting on the iPhone b/c most people probably don't leave it open, like you do with a desktop/laptop. You use it and then get out or turn the phone off.


  16. Is it me or is it Evernote?

     

    There is no way that I can find to highlight text? 

     

    No I don't want to change the color of the text I want to highlight it. Even the text editor that this forum uses has a highlighter. Please say it's just me.

     

     

    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.


  17. you're supposed to help. that's not helpful.

    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.


  18. 95% of my HD space was being taken up by Evernote so I wanted to find a way to clear it out. I ended up finding a lot irrelevant files that were connected to Evernote but weren't really notes so I deleted ALL of them. That eventually cleared ALL of my notes.

    And because I was trying to clear my HD space, I cleared my Trash in Mac. 

     

    All my notes are now gone and I need them for class - literally EVERYTHING I've written is in there and I have 5 exams next week.

     

    Please help!!

    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.

    I don't see the point in posting multiple quotes of what has already been said in this thread.

    It's a real waste of space and just clutters the thread.

    What's more, it doesn't change any of the other posters view.

    There's nothing wrong with people continuing to express their need for sorting.

    Who knows, if CUSTOMERS continue to complain and request this feature, Evernote may someday see the light! ;)

    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. 


  20. So not only is it possible it has happened. Imagine your disbelief. Mindblown.... but hay thanks for the help.....

    As I said & Jeff reiterated...

     

    * Because of the way that Evernote syncing is set up, it's impossible for two devices to be correctly synced without the corresponding account on the Evernote servers being synced. All syncing goes through the Evernote servers.

    And you're welcome.


  21. Well it has happened.  Notes that I filled (put into notebooks) last night are still showing up in different notebooks today in the web-based version.  IOW it is possible.

    Sorry, but no, based upon the way Evernote functions, not possible. As I said, you are looking at a different account on the web, using different login credentials than the account on your desktop & mobile.


  22. Both my desktop and mobile are in sync; but the web based version is not. What's up?

     

     

    Since Evernote syncs from the Evernote servers as the hub (rather than from device to device), you must have multiple accounts & are looking at the wrong one on the web client.  IOW, if you make a note on your desktop & it appears on your mobile, then the note has definitely reached the Evernote servers.  If you are not seeing that note when logging into the web client, then you are logging into a different account on the web.  IOW, what you are describing is impossible, unless you have two (or more) accounts.
