  1. FWIW, A little more context on this. The Windows OS has the ability to add text tags to files. I don't use this, myself, and I doubt that many other folks do either, but there it is. So just kicking things around a bit in File Explorer, and with the understanding that Evernote's organization scheme != Windows OS file system.: A file rename operation does not change the file's modified date Tag operations *do* change the file modification date So a bit of inconsistency on the modified metadata always modifies updated date. Me, I don't have a problem with this; other rational beings of my acquaintance do. But more importantly, File Explorer does offer undo for tag changes and file renames both. So my take is that changes to updated date on Evernote notes is a separate issue, but an undo that undid things like tag changes, and title renames would really be the better solution here. I'll upvote this on that basis. Cheers.
  2. For desktop devices (Win, Mac), Evernote keeps a full copy of your data on your local machine, unless you you have "on demand sync" enabled, which is a Windows feature (don't know about Mac). Aside from that, Evernote stores all of your Evernote data except for local notebooks on its servers, so long as you are online, which is required for syncing. Evernote also keeps note histories, generated every so often, also stored in the Evernote servers; paying customers can access these.
  3. Basically, if you ship a Windows application, then you need to install the appropriate redistributable set for the libraries that you use. That's the rules.
  4. Are you asking for user-specifiable sort order (for example, by dragging a note up or down in the list) or for multi-column sort (sort by date first, then by title, etc.)?
  5. The behavior of not changing the updated date when doing tag operations is by Evernote design (for better or worse). See:
  6. Merged from Windows feature requests to existing general feature request for the same feature.
  7. What is the "memory time"? Do you mean the Created date? The Reminder date?
  8. An AppleScript analogue for Windows would be very useful, probably top of my list. ENScript ain't exactly all that.
  9. Is that just present tense, or a general operating principle? "She runs the gamut of A to B" - Dorothy Parker, speaking of a Katherine Hepburn performance
  10. Not so. You'd be in the shallow end with the rest of us, though...
  11. BTW, since Evernote is a customer of Google's (https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/226885427-Google-Cloud-Platform-FAQ.,) I'd say that this is pretty unlikely. Beyond that, I can't comment. LVL 5 Deep State stuff, you know...
  12. Yes, generally working fine for me, with the very occasional hiccup. Windows 10, Chrome, ...
  13. @rimboma: Having the Ctrl (copy) /Shift (move) modifiers operate the way they do in other applications, including File Explorer sounds like a good idea to me. This is sounding like a feature request -- would you like me to move it to that forum? I'll upvote it if so...
  14. Presumably then you'd be able to run them at the same time -- side-by-each as the Francophones in my state say -- and just go through the options dialog in parallel on each device. Why muck around with the registry is you don't need to? Are you really so finely tuned to an exact set of options that it matters all that much (and if you missed one, but didn't notice, how bad would that be?). Aside from that, I'm not so sure that all settings are kept in the registry anyhow; some of them may be maintained in the database. Your call, of course, but I wouldn't do it, and I'm pretty friendly with the registry.
  15. Easy - roll your own. Just save a note somewhere safe / convenient, and when you want a new instance, use the note copy or duplicate functionality to make a copy. In the WIndows client, you can preserve tags when you make a copy.
  16. Please do not bump topics, particularly your own. Thanks.
  17. Doesn't seem to work in the latest 6.18.1 beta either, at least pasted from Visual Studio. Looks like VS puts one instance of the copied text onto the clipboard in Rich Text Format (RTF), but Evernote ignores that and takes the Unicode text instance instead.
  18. Not sure if .enml is the same as the .enex files we have on Windows, but that does kinda sorta work. Embedded images in the note, not so much (to your reference to 'simple notes', I guess)...
  19. ENML is an XHTML variant, so text yes, but not necessarily very human-readable. It is possible to sign up for a premium account temporarily for the purpose of accessing your Note History (https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313858-How-to-use-note-history-to-view-older-versions-of-a-note), though I've never done it.
  20. For literal searches, punctuation is explicitly excluded. See https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php. See the section on "Matching Literal Terms" Don't really know of any way around this. Definitely would be nice to have the ability to match arbitrary text including punctuation. I'm sure that this has been requested before.
  21. I see this working in the latest beta (308300) Prerelease (CE Build ce-62.1.7539). I specifically tested saved searches using the any: term. For example: any: resource:application/pdf tag:admin worked fine. Also: stack:@Work any: created:week-1 updated:week-1. I'll leave aside any metaphysical speculation as to why bugs occur....
  22. If I was really worried about such things, I'd probably use encrypted documents as attachments.
  23. To unpack this a bit: There is no way in Evernote to create encrypted notebooks at this time. You can, however, create encrypted sections of notes, but that doesn't apply to attachments like documents. As @DTLownotes, the desktop applications allow you to create local notebooks that contain notes that only ever reside on one machine (since they are never synced to the Evernote servers). So you cannot view these documents on any other device, and you are responsible for backing up notes in local backups, because they won't be on the Evernote serves. You can certainly store encrypted notes in an Evernote note as attachments. You'll need to decrypt them yourself on whatever device you are using that the time.
