  1. You can find anything he's written through his forum profile: @Ian Small
  2. Windows? Mac? Android? iOS? Web?
  3. Well, scare headline notwithstanding (attackers almost certainly did not steal data from 4.7 million users), a forum announcement about the problem should probably have been published. According to the article, the problem has been fixed: Money quote from the article: So check your web clipper version number, and update if it's not 7.11.1, then update.
  4. This is posted in the Android forum, and if that's the OS you're using, what @PinkElephant said s true. On Android, you neeed to log out of one account before logging into another. On Windows, you can open up different instances of Evernote for different users at the same time. One other possibility to consider: you can share notebooks to other users, in which case they appear as shared notebooks in their account. I do this on my Android device so that I can see specific notebooks from my work account in my personal account on my phone. This might be something that works for you, too.
  5. The old tech blog did make for entertaining reading. Not exactly in my wheelhouse, technically (similar to this one above), as I am more interested in the UI that Evernote users face every day because it's closer to what I do, but I do like learning about the underlying underpinnings of what we see on our own devices. Today's video did seem a little prosaic / straightforward: the engineer finds the bottleneck, and remedies it; maybe more information about how the user store propagates its changes to its replicants. I guess since it's a lower frequency operation, it's probably OK to just send updates along immediately, but it did seem like a missing piece, and since it was pitched to a pretty non-technical audience, that part of the audience might might not have noticed. In any case, I know you folks are up there listening. This time around, not much to talk about, but the prior video on UI approach / changes is something that is great for getting feedback on, since we're more apt to have stronger opinions on what we interact with directly. I'm hoping for more videos along those lines.
  6. In my case, because not everything fits into an M x N grid.. Sometimes I want to subgrid a single grid. Sometimes I want fewer columns, as with a table header. You can do some of this with the Windows application, or monkey around with the table markup in an ENML document, but you have to work at it a bit, so not convenient.
  7. Agree with gaz that full HTML editing is probably beyond the scope of what Evernote's trying to do, but also suffer from webclips that don't look as great in Evernote as they do in a browser. Another thing that you can do, at least in the Windows product, is to export your web-clipped note out to HTML format, edit it using your favorite HTML editor, and drag it back into Evernote.
  8. Annotate is for very simple annotation, not image manipulation. Your best bet is to use a standalone application, which Evernote should allow you to invoke on your image to perform the required functionality, just as it does for other attachment types.
  9. Tools / Options / Note / Note Font --> change the size
  10. In addition, some folks use the 3rd-party Backuppery application. See
  11. Ran steps 1 & 2 of this scenario. Was able to type in the note title, but trying to switch to the note body, the editor froze for a while. Didn't need to force-stop, it came around eventually, edit the note body, change notebooks, etc.. Evernote did not crash. The freeze is definitely problematic; hard to tell what's causing it, whether it's local or a problem on the Evernote servers. This is Android 6.0.1, just for reference.
  12. I don't know which would be easier. In order to make this happen, you'd need a way to recognize cell/range references in in a table, and distinguish them from things that might look like cell references or formulas. This has to be done using some form of HTML markup, and I don't know how easy/difficult it would be for Evernote to do all of that. For me, the easy (and cool) bit -- or at least the part of the problem that I have experience with -- is parsing and evaluating formulas. "Embed" means "create attachment".
  13. Probably best bet is to contact @Shane D. directly. Any user should be able to report specific posts as well; it's at the top right of each post. Edit: Forum Code of Conduct, for reference...
  14. It does not. The ENML format (also used in .enex files) encodes a note, but note history is outside of your note database. Almost certainly, your note history consists of snapshots of changed notes (which are likely also preserved in also encoded in ENML. format, though it's possible they are encoded as diffs from the previous version). Since a note has a UID, a note and its snapshots can all be tied together This is not note history, it's just a snapshot of the latest iteration your notes database. As far as I know, note history is stored in the Evernote servers, and I'd guess that that's where the snapshots are taken, too. It'd be a lot to need to synchronize notes and note histories; simpler to just let the server do it when a note is synced, or periodically snapshot changed notes You need to go through the Evernote web site to get to old versions of your notes.
  15. Addendum: I've noticed some slowness with this version at times, other times it's seemed normal/a bit faster. But no crashes as of yet.
  16. Is this related to the Android Beta (the forum topic where you posted)? What version are you using?
  17. To limit your search to note title content, use: intitle:<blahblah> See https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313828-How-to-use-Evernote-s-advanced-search-syntax
  18. Seems to be working fine on my Droid Turbo. Seems a bit snappier, even. For people having problems, you should post your device and Android OS version.
  19. Competition is competition. If Evernote is "winning", whatever that means (and I don't have any idea how many users there are for each application), that doesn't make the competitors unreal in any sense. They're more or less in the same realm of functionality, but they all have their own aims, styles, and approaches, and each has their own audience. OneNote is plenty "real", for example, and lots of folks use it. Ditto the others. It would be interesting to put real numbers on the how many people use different applications, though.
  20. It means that you have a sync problem with your notes. Start here: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313378-How-to-troubleshoot-syncing-issues
  21. ?? What a puzzling statement. There's plenty of competition for Evernote, and has been since I started using it over 10 years ago. Are you saying that OneNote isn't competition? Bear? Notion? et.c, etc. Do a web lookup on "alternatives to Evernote". These all seem to be viable competitors in one way or another, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.
  22. Oh, I understand the appeal, but geez, it's just that there's no challenge to it. You can be well-reasoned, snarky, toss their own specious quotes back at them, whatever; same result. I guess it's worn too thin for me. But rock on -- I'm not telling you what to do. And the Ignore button is my friend.
  23. Hey gaz, DTLow -- my advice to you is to give up. This is no-win territory. If your backup plans suffice for yourselves, then that should be the end of it. The Wombot doesn't actually care about anything except showing off, they just need you to respond so they can spew some more. Think flame and oxygen:: the latter feeds the former. You don't need their approval for what you do; your cred in these forums is in good stead as far as I'm concerned; the number of people you've helped to use Evernote better is a testament to that; but this is one person who isn't interested in being helped. Walking away doesn't mean you've lost anything meaningful; continuing will never win you anything. (Metaphoric) morale of the story (attributed to many): "Never mud-wrestle with a pig. You’ll both get dirty, but the pig will enjoy it!". Just my advice, your choice.
  24. So far, just a new graphic. If they were to allow for other colors, it'd probably be a dropdown to the color picker, as with the pen color control. I'm not saying that that won't change, but there's nothing really new under this particular sun, at least for now.
  25. Not sure what the "pen feature" that you refer to is. What point in the video do they discuss it? Currently, the highlighting is still just a toggle.
