  1. If you want any of that content, you should export your notebooks, individually to .enex format and save those files (if your employment rules allow it) on a USB stick or something before you uninstall Evernote. Of course, those notes are probably also the property of your employer, so you might want to consider what you're doing there. Anyways, if you want to destroy the database, then before uninstalling Evernote, open it up, and on the main menu to Tools / Options, and select the General taab. Click on "Open Database Folder"; you should be taken to a File Explorer view of a folder that's in a directory something like <USER NAME>/Evernote/Databases. Save that folder name somewhere. Now shut down Evernote. In File Explorer, go to your database folder (that you saved away earlier). All the files in there that have ".exb" as part of their name comprise your Evernote database. Delete them, and your database will be gone. For that matter, you can go up a lever from the Databases folder, and then delete everything there. But do not start up Evernote again after this step, or it will try to sync notes back down again. Uninstall it instead. If you really want to be cautious, you could empty your recycle bin, and then use some utility to clean up used disk sectors.
  2. Google translation: Is this for Windows? Mac? Edit: merged identical post. Please do not double post. Thank you.
  3. No difference as far as I can tell. Tags come in very early, right from the first reply, which was from Dave Engberg himself, as a workaround for lack of nested notebooks, with a hint of tags being TheBetterWayTM. (I have to confess that i think they are, too, but I like to think I'm less militant about it now). Certainly the return to tags in the topic.is due to folks who understandably haven't read the whole thing and have missed the tag workaround, and so it gets repeated in various formulations every so often. Also, as the tag concept seems to be less widely understood as compared to the nested folder model, some explanation about how they work relative to nested folders is sometimes also required. Explanation about the 2 level stack / notebooks vs. a full-blown notebook hierarchy also seem necessary at times. No question that adding a fully nested notebook structure would be a big architectural change for you all (and us). I'm doubtful that I'd take much advantage of them, but I'm not ruling it out. My biggest concerns / curiosities are about how they fit into (or take over) the existing architecture:. What happens to stacks?.They have always seemed like a bit of a quick&dirty hack, but they have their uses -- even by me. But they exist, even if they're only a special attribute of a notebook, and they're supported in the search language. Maybe they just turn into notebooks? One of the iron-clad rules with notebooks currently is that their names must be unique in a single account (duplicate names, standard example, my Work "Todo" notebook shared to my personal account which also has a "Todo" notebook, can come in via sharing, but that makes things confusing). But we all know that file systems allow for the same name to be used elsewhere in the hierarchy. And that affects search, which is a real strength of Evernote. More on search: if duplicate notebook names are allowed, then a search like "notebook:abc" becomes ambiguous if there are multiple notebooks named 'abc'. Yes, we cope with this in our file system browsers, but gosh, I don't really want to have to use another tree browser in application (though they're not unknown, as I fully understand, say in GIS, where I work as a developer). Is this an opening for hiearchical search, e.g. the ability to search a notebook and all of its subnotebooks? And can we then get hiearchical tag search, e.g. a search for a tag and any of its subtags? Export and sharing: can we export or share a notebook without any if its subnotebooks,? Or all of its subnotebooks? Anyhow, good puck pushing forward on your current road. After 12 years, Evernote still does it for me. I look forward to improvements, when they come. Cheers, and carry on!
  4. Um, because that's how they designed it? That was an Evernote technical document that I posted, after all....
  5. Hmmm. I see this working on my Pixel 3a, version, build 8.31 beta1. That's for searches of All Notes, a particular notebook, and in-note search, but only if the search contains one literal term (even with special terms like tag: notebook: etc.). For example, a search on tag:todo xyz , would show the highlight on "xyz". If you have more than one literal term,, e.g. xyz abc, then no highlight.
  6. I hope to finish my career without having had to do installer work (including licensing stuff). Yeesh. Fortunately the Evernote icon seem sreasonably well-behaved on the two machines I use, and it's an AutoRun anyhow,
  7. I think you mean "duplication"; "duplicity" has a rather different meaning... [Note that I'm using the web beta, as I don't have access to the Windows beta, but it appears to have the same behavior/look as you describe here] Aside from that, the "Navigate to containing notebook" is actually pretty handy. I know that folks asked for it in the Windows client, and it's there in the public release: you have to do a Ctrl+click on the notebook name. Handy, as I said, but unfortunately not too discoverable (a similar and useful bit of functionality is given by ctrl+clicking on a tag in the note's tags in the note panel). I have a workflow that requires me to move weekly journal notes to a different notebook, and I found that I use that and the "Navigate to notebook" functionality about equally. It would be nice to have both of those back, but maybe a little more user-obvious: click on the mutton, go to the notebook; click on the dropdown, change note's notebook. The note info thingy isn't such a big deal to me, bit I do like the current Windows client where there's a customizable mini toolbar on the upper right of the note panel: I keep buttons for Note Info, and Reminder up there.
  8. Not in general in an Evernote search query, no. See the Evernote search Grammar page: https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php, particularly the secion on "Matching Literal Terms". The money quote:
  9. And also in the Reminders section, at least using the native Windows and Android Evernote applications.
  10. Nice -- pretty much seems to work from anywhere you can make a selection: web browser, text editor were what I tried anyhow.
  11. The canonical way to do this sort of thing in Evernote is to use tags: tag multiple notes with a unique tag, and filter on that tag. Only those notes will appear in the note list. Moreover, in the Windows client, you can sort notes by tag names (remembering of course that notes can have multiple tags). Merge notes creates a single note out of two or more separate notes, so that's correct; it's not the answer. If you need something more than that, it would be helpful for you to provide more specific use cases.
  12. If you're reading a blog, as you said initially, then presumably it's on the web, and you can use the web clipper as recommended above. For PDF, it depends one what reader you're using. I use Chrome as my PDF reader on Windows,so again, the web clipper option mentioned above should work fine. Can't comment on other PDF readers, as I don't use them. On Android, you'd use the standard Share functionality to send selected text, images, links etc. to your Evernote account.
  13. * mod: split to a separate topic
  14. On the web, I have the Evernote web clipper installed. I can make a selection, right-click and select "Evernote Web Clipper", then "Clip selection to Evernote" (or bookmark, or screenshot or full page).
  15. So how's that working' out for you?? 😼 Note that I am myself am a full time C++ dev, though I have some a bit of JavaScript in the past, not to mention being exclusively C for the first 8 or so years of my career. Not gonna make any claims about how much sanity is left in general though...
  16. You may think you're paying Evernote for premium features, but mostly you're not. By and large, the "premium" aspect of Evernote Premium is one of capacity (note upload capacity, larger note sizes, etc.) rather than fancier editing features; see https://evernote.com/compare-plans. In fact, the editor is the same with respect to editing, in which I'd include image resizing. That's not to say that quick resize wouldn't be a useful feature for some number of Evernote users, but that's not really what your premium account buys you.
  17. It's not for nothing that some people refer to the popular regex symbol '*' as 'splat'.
  18. Hello and welcome to the forums. Merging this to the existing request.
  19. Yeah, "component" the literal string shouldn't be used to ferret out URLs.

  20. Except that there are other link types than "http://"; "https://", "file://", "ftp://", "mailto://" etc, are all valid URL prefixes (see e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/URL). Beyond that, I'd be hard-pressed to say that the ones here look anything like web links (sorry, @dcon) or any other kind of URL, and it's already been shown that its behavior is pretty inconsistent, so it looks like a feature that needs some developer attention because bugginess. I suppose you could ask for an option to turn it off, but that's just one more option hiding among many, and only @CalS knows them all.
  21. Understood, but why the difference in behavior between "ar.component" and "r.component"? That's what makes my nose wrinkle...
  22. Kind of bizarre. I tried paring down the name. While "r.component.file" worked fine (no link generated), "ar.component.file" did generate the link. Actually, "ar.component" also generated the link, while neither "r.component" nor "ar.component" exhibited the problem. Smells like a bug, but it seems like a weird one. In any case, what should work is after you paste it in add a space at the end, then select the link and press Ctrl+Shift_R (or right-click / "Remove") and it should stay as text. But definitely a bug.
  23. You can certainly move notes from a notebook that's shared to you to a notebook in your local account, so long as the shared notebook has been shared as writable (you can copy notes from a read-only notebook). Tags that aren't in your local account will be added, so your note tags are retained (but I think you lose any tag hierarchy from the source account, if that's important to you; it's not really for me). The Windows Evernote client makes this easy, since you can select a bunch of notes and move them all en masse, or copy them if you want to be extra careful, making that they transfer correctly before you delete them from the old account (I would). Can't do that on the web or Android clients; Evernote for Mac and iOS I don't know. The point is, you can move notes between accounts, and they will take on their new "home". No need to go through the export/import dance.
