  1. OK, so, on my Android phone, here's what I did:

    • With Wi-Fi and mobile data on, loaded a note that doesn't reside in an offline notebook; ensured that it was loaded
    •  Exited out of the note
    • Disabled Wi-Fi and mobile data
    • Reloaded the note. Got a message about"unable to obtain note lock", or something. Makes sense; no web connection.
    • Added some text to the note, and clicked the checkmark to save.
    • Exited out of the note.
    • Re-enabled Wi-Fi and mobile data.
    • Synched.
    • Checked the note on my PC, and lo -- the edit made it.

    So yes, at least on the Android client, you *can* edit a note that it not in an offline notebook, even if you are disconnected from the Internet, so long as the note is cached locally.

    That's exactly what I guessed before, and it turns out it's correct, though as noted, it's not something to base a workflow on.

    When without a connection and I try to access a note not in an offline notebook I  get a full screen No internet connection download the notebook message.  No chance to create a conflict.  IOS anyway.

    I'll have to try  it on Android. It's have to eb a note you accessed on the device before you went offline, but the rules around those aren't published, as far as I know.

    In Microsoft Word, if there is a word that is underlined in red, you can get rid of the red line by adding the word to the dictionary so that the red line doesn't show anymore when you type that word again. I think it would be helpful if this feature was added to Evernote too.



    This certainly works in the Evernote for Windows client. Which one are you referring to?

    Not exactly.  EN can be run without a server connection on any mobile device that supports offline notebooks.

    Actually, I'm guessing that any note that's been cached on a mobile device can be edited. Conflicts are always possible in those cases, though.

    I've been doing my best to try to get other employees engaged in the discussion boards. Several of our customer support members monitor the boards and respond or triage issues as necessary. But, I think it's invaluable for our non-customer support members to be engaged as well. The posts on here are a great insight into the issues and frustrations that our customers have. I've been able to quickly help address several issues people have run into that would have otherwise been overlooked.

    Nice post. I can relate, and appreciate all Evernote engagement in the forums. Thanks.

    A problem potentially created by EN leaving the featureless Beta and dead Classic as options.

    I'm guessing that the Classic version is still around because people are still using it, since it's the only one that supports a list view. And its snippet view with reminders is ok, too. They should be able to tell how much each version is being, btw. But three versions is a mystery to me, and the lack of communication about their strategy there would be more concerning to me if I used the web client any significant amount.

    As a senior poster in the forum, you need to reply based on how the 'average evernote user would use the tool'.

    There is ~absolutely~ no restriction placed on 'senior members' about what they can and cannot post, except for the standard forum rules. They don't 'need' to do anything, and can post what they like.

    If you like Notion, then use it and be happy.

    If you have better answers to user problems than what you're seeing here, then post them.

    If you want to criticize other forum users for not posting what you want them to post, too bad. Unless it's factually incorrect, that is, in which case your opinion is as valid as theirs.

    If this does not show, maybe it helps to check in the options, under reminders, if the settings are activated as shown in the screenshot.

    It is known that the separate reminder list does not show in the Windows client when one of the list views (vertical or horizontal) is used, which is what the original poster is using, and what they are asking for. There is no setting for turning it on in list mode.

    Notes with reminders, being just notes, are always viewable just like other notes are. But the reminder list in only viewable in snippet, card, or thumbnail views in the Evernote Windows client.

    This is considered a bug, isn't it?

    As far as I know, it's by design. It's been this way since Reminders were introduced. Possibly on the assumption that folks who use list views don't want extra clutter (i.e., replicated notes). Anyhow, it's certainly awkward that you can't have reminders in list views if you want them (modulo @DTLow's tip that you can always show reminders via filtering), but that lands it in the "feature request" bucket, not the "bug" bucket, the way I see it.

    You see, I recently purchased a Chromebook, which became my main device. Which means I'll be using the web version most. I was pleased to see it's gotten a major update, but when it came to using it, it's just unbearably slow to an unusable degree.

    If you're using the web beta, I'd suggest reverting to the prior version: go to your account settings, look for the link that says "Go back to current version", and click it. Or just use thing link here: https://www.evernote.com/Settings.action?disableIonToPrevious=

    I have a paid account and I am experiencing the same issue. I'll have written an long article, jump to another note to grab some notes then i come back and a huge segment of the work i just did is gone. This is ridiculous.

    And there hasn't been a single reply from an Evernote staff member.

    This is mainly a user forum. If you want technical support, you should probably start here:

    @Scott T.I am still concerned that audited code apparently made it into production with a logic error, even though that logic error itself presents only a minor security problem (codes leaking without user's knowledge).

    Everyone in the software world is concerned with this, but the Halting Problem being what it is, it hasn't been solved yet, at least in the large scale. Humans in the loop mean bugs are always possible, this on a day when Facebook announced a minor mishap of their own: https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/21/tech/facebook-password-database/index.html

    The problem I am having is that this search "reminderTime:day-7 tag:"A02.0 post production Engineer" incorrectly returns anything with a reminder in the last 7 days.

    I think you're looking for dates before a specific time but not in the future, in which case you should be using a -reminderTime: term, in conjunction with a regular reminderTime: term to give you a bounded time frame. The normal reminderTime: term gives you dates later than the time parameter. The Evernote Search Grammar page (https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php) says this about reminderTIme:

    reminderTime:[datetime] - matches notes with a reminderTime attribute that is equal to or later than the argument datetime. reminderTime is the time at which the user has requested a reminder about the note. E.g.:

    • reminderTime:day
      • Matches all notes with a reminder set for today or later
    • reminderTime:day -reminderTime:day+7
      • Matches all notes with a reminder set for the next 7 days

    Since you seem to be looking for items from some date in the past but not in the future, you'd need to use both to bound the range. For example, the following should give you notes with reminder times in the last week from today:

    remindertime:day-7 -reminderTime:day

    If Windows 10  doesn't support dark mode, as purported by several Evernote replies to this topic, then how is it possible to configure the left panel as dark in the Windows client?

    Because Evernote developers added a "dark mode" panel, which has nothing to do with any Windows-supported dark mode? Otherwise it would just respond to Windows dark mode setting, right?

    1. This isn't a priority for the development engineers, who have other 'cool' features to pursue regardless of what users are asking for.  (I have seen it 1000 times in SW development.)

    Well, obviously they're working on other stuff -- or more likely, per the CEO's blog post -- focusing attention on fixing bugs,  improving stability and consistency , etc., rather than adding new functionality. In other words, the developers have been things to work on that the company (not the developers) has deemed to be higher priority. Is this a surprise?
