  1. Try starting here: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/527-customer-supportbilling/
  2. *yawn* The so-called "tags" people get it just fine. The nested notebooks discussion has been well and truly hashed out over here already. The tags people, being possessed of a practical nature, don't care; they ask the question (as should we all): can I use this software as it is? If the answer is "yes", great, if not then the answer is "find something else". Nobody's saying anything about metaphysical superiority; rather, it's whether it works better than other available systems to me workflows. Oh, and by the way, none of this means that tags people might not see a use for nested notebooks; it's just a value judgement that Evernote works better than other solutions (which may also offer nested containers). Funny, mine is, using mostly tags. There's nothing at all illogical about using tags to categorize your data. It might not suit your purposes to do so, but that doesn't make it ipso facto illogical. It's just different, which you know already, but don't seem to be able to accept. It's like calling chocolate illogical. Or colors. I don't know who the "we" is that you refer to. "We" here are all Evernote users (or ex-users). I don't think that you speak for all of us.
  3. OK, weird. I see this working in the version I'm using now, and can't recall that that case didn't work. Select some text, select a new font, it changes. Every time, for me. Tried it with all kinds of different fonts, not just the standard ones. Version 6.18.1.8300 (308300) Prerelease (CE Build ce-62.1.7539)
  4. Sure, but the bit that I quoted wasn't really clear because your use of the term "local" means different things in those two sentences. "On Windows/Mac, all notebooks are local" is actually untrue where "local" means "unsynched notebooks", and misleading where "local" means "stored locally on your computer", since it doesn't tell the whole story.
  5. Import of note data seems ok (tables are not faithfully imported, though the content is shown in tabular form), and there are some appealing things about the UI/UX, but Notion has a long way to go before it can compete with Evernote for my sage. First glance (Windows desktop): * No All Notes view.: you can only view notes in a particular notebook. Also means that you can't view all notes in a stack, either. * No 3-pane navigation -- notes are viewed as popups on the main page. I want to see the current note while I browse a note list * Search: Ad-hoc search seems to be missing, tag search isn't great * No tag tree navigation : if that sort of thing is important to you * Nothing like Evernote's snippet view, which I use almost exclusively. * Confgurability is minimal Not really ready for (my) prime time, I'm sorry to say.
  6. That's a pretty confusing description. You're using the term "local notebook" to refer to two different contexts when only one applies in Evernote. A "local" notebook in the Evernote desktop products is one that is never synced to the Evernote servers. All notebooks are not local notebooks; in fact, the default for notebooks is non-local (i.e., synced to the Evernote servers). With respect to the Windows product at least, Evernote maintains a database of information for all of your notes on your computer: that includes information for notes from local notebooks and notes from synced notebooks. With respect to the note information that's stored in that database, normally all note content is stored, including attachments. However, you can configure Evernote to only store some note content on your computer (Tools / Options / Synchronization / "Purge rarely viewed note content". This is useful for devices with limited disk storage. Notes that are viewed frequently will maintain all of their content on the computer; the content of notes that are rarely viewed is deleted from the computer, but you can still search for these notes and their content will be downloaded as needed.
  7. Windows? Mac? In Windows, in the latest beta at least, if you have the Reminders setting "Sort reminders by date" checked, then you can order undated reminders arbitrarily, but you can's order dated reminders. If you "Sort reminders by date" unchecked, then you can reorder reminders arbitrarily.
  8. It's not clear exactly what you're doing. Did you select some text in yoru note, and then try to change its font by selecting one from the list? That should work; at least I see it working on my computer. Also, if you wish to set a default font for all of your notes, you'd do that in Tools / Options / Note.
  9. Make a bookmark with URL https://www.evernote.com/Login.action. Save it somewhere convenient in your browser. p.s. Are your screenshots from a mobile device?
  10. Another thought: are you adding the clip as "ENML Format"? You might want to look at , e.g., https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/api/Winuser/nf-winuser-, though I'm not sure that's the issue, but I expect that Evernote will prefer ENML Format over others that are also on the clipboard. It is curious that they need to also validate a cookie; maybe it allows them to assume that the clip is valid ENML, and is safe to paste into a note, maybe???
  11. I suggest that you read the above posts from @Rich Tener and @Scott T. in this topic.
  12. There are two mobile Evernote applications, Android and iOS. Offline notebooks are available for both, so not an exception. Well, except for the fact that you have to be a premium user, and need to designate which ones are cached, I guess. Note that Windows users (and maybe Mac users?) can configure Evernote to use on-demand syncing of notes, to the full database may not reside on your local computer anyways. No. It's a result of the fact that multi-select operations not implemented in the mobile applications.There's always some form of Evernote database available, but it's not the same as what's on desktop devices (and the Mac and Win Evernote databases differ anyways) -- it may not contain all note content, for example.
  13. Handy Evernote-written reference here: https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/enml.php. It's mostly an HTML subset (or more precisely, XHTML), with some Evernote-specific additions. The <en-clipboard> element isn't part of the above; so it's hard to tell if it's a Windows-only thing,, at least for me, since I don't use Mac It's probably not part of ENML, since it's used by the application only for clipboard stuff. Not sure why it's needed (since on Windows, it's recognizable as an ENML clip in the clipboard), unless maybe the cookie is being used to identify the logged-in account (you can have more than one open at a time -- I'll need to test this at home) it comes from for some reason; even so I'm not sure what that would matter.
  14. Is this using the Windows application? (this topic is in a Windows-specific forum)
  15. Maybe you should look into a 3rd-party solution. This one purports to work for WIndows, OS X, Linux, and Android: http://www.clipbrd.com/ (I've never used it myself)
  16. Please see: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313858-How-to-use-note-history-to-view-older-versions-of-a-note
  17. ?? Different applications. Different UI. Different feature set. By default, yes, but untrue otherwise: on the Android client at least, premium users can designate specific notebooks as "offline", i.e., their contents are be cached on your devices, so you need not always download from the cloud.
  18. This is a Windows-specific forum. If you are an Android user, you should be seeking an answer in the Android forum here: https://discussion.evernote.com/forum/210-evernote-for-android/
  19. Well, it certainly is a mainly user-based forum, but it's not just for talk. A lot of people get help for their Evernote problems directly from Evernote users. To your second point, Evernote developers do sometimes chime in here, but you can't realistically expect to engage in long conversations with them -- there's way too many of us, and too few of them. Evernote would rather have them spend their time, you know, developing software, which is their job function. That being said, all posts are read here by Evernote staff, and problems are funneled to the development staff, as is common in many development houses. Beyond that, there's always this:
  20. How exactly are you creating a new Evernote note? Via hotkey (e.g. Ctrl+Alt+N)?
