  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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???
  8. I suggest that you read the above posts from @Rich Tener and @Scott T. in this topic.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Is this using the Windows application? (this topic is in a Windows-specific forum)
  12. 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)
  13. Please see: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313858-How-to-use-note-history-to-view-older-versions-of-a-note
  14. ?? 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.
  15. 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/
  16. 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:
  17. How exactly are you creating a new Evernote note? Via hotkey (e.g. Ctrl+Alt+N)?
  18. Oh, I believe that, but there are a lot of unbelievers out there who aren't really seeing it, and who won't take my word for it (imagine that). For the biggie requests here on the forums (e.g. the Linux client, thoroughly nested notebooks, etc.), it would be helpful to get some Evernote guidance on how it would (or might) fit into Evernote's future plans, either pro or con. Evernote's old CTO Dave Engberg, didn't seem to like doing that, as it seemed to imply commitment, but I don't see anything wrong with saying things like "hey, we like that idea, we've put that on the list" or "I like that, but don't see how that fits in with our future plans", etc. People don't like hearing "no", but I think that they respect honesty better. That's cool -- I hope that that person has some forum presence as part of their role. I know the dynamic very well indeed. I'm fortunate that Evernote does most of the things I need as it is, but that's not to say that I wouldn't pick up on new features when they're added; 'm thinking of Evernote's reminder notes:-I didn't think I needed todo list functionality in Evernote, but reminders work really well for me, particularly at work. Anyways, thanks.
  19. I have to say that I've been using use Evernote extensively in my full development work for over 10 years now, and have never missed syntax highlighting. What I do rely on: screen caps, which note generation, weekly journals issue tracking/progress, web clipping for saving development-related articles for research. Evernote is great for this, and its tagging functionality really helps my organizational needs (often, a note is a member of several categories; multiple tags fill that bill). I do store code snippets in Evernote sometimes, but -- maybe because I started getting paid for this stuff in the early '80's (green screens were a thing back then, fixed fonts, no bold or italics) -- syntax highlighting isn't something that i really notice in the tools I use, Visual Studio, Notepad++, BeyondCompare being the biggies. In Visual Studio, what I do use a lot is Intellisense and syntax error display, functionality that would almost certainly be beyond what Evernote would provide. Nitpick: the forum does not have syntax highlighting. It does have rich text support in its code blocks, but it doesn't understand code that you add to it. For example, I typed the following into a forum code block. No highlighting. That being said, the old Evernote code blocks used to support text colors, but for some reason they don't now, which I think is unfortunate. for ( auto& i : myContainer ) { i->display() } Anyways, hopefully Notion works well for you. I keep thinking that I need to look at it, but Evernote does pretty much all I need it to do, so learning -- and becoming fluent with -- a new system would probably take more effort than I need at the moment.
