  1. Come to think about it, that's another option. If you have a Windows license, just install it on your Mac using Boot Camp, do the conversion, then remove it all.
  2. Unfortunately, the hard way...manually. I just felt it was worth doing, and managed to do some notes housekeeping in the process. If you really want to use Evernote, I suggest finding a cheap Windows PC laptop (new, used, or borrowed) then use Windows OneNote to migrate to your Evernote account. The Windows transfer process works just fine.
  3. Hi, Doug. No, I still haven't found a way to move from OneNote back to Evernote. In fact, I finally decided to simplify my life even more and now use Apple Notes exclusively. I'm actually amazed how good they are, even for sharing things you find on line (like using the Evernote Helper). Text formatting works well, embedding PDFs, etc. Not as robust as Evernote, but certainly a good option and importantly, it's within the Apple ecosystem.
  4. Evernote for Windows has always had an option for importing OneNote...not so for Mac, even though I have the latest version of Evernote for Mac. I think my only option here will be to find someone with a Windows laptop who will let me install Evernote and OneNote (Windows versions), add my accounts and then do the import. After that if I sync Evernote on my Mac it should be fine.
  5. This only works when migrating from Evernote to OneNote. As my original post states...I want to migrate from OneNote back to Evernote.
  6. About a year ago I moved from Evernote to OneNote on a Mac and now I'd like to move back. I've searched these discussion groups as well as the internet and I haven't found anything that works. Lots of references to "Menu > Import > OneNote" but when you do this on a Mac the "OneNote" option isn't there, so I don't know what (on my Mac) to import. Thanks in advance for any help on how to do this.
  7. @jeromecarney: I appreciate the kind words, but with everyone I've talked to about this...the ONLY thing that fixed it was a reinstall of the OS. Don't expect any help from Evernote...nice app and nice folks...but it's just never going to get solved. I needed the functionality of the new Menu Bar Clipper so it was all worth it to me.
  8. No, it wasn't in the trash...checked there, and definitely not in /Applications. I uninstalled it using AppCleaner, which even found the six or seven instances of Skitch crashing (the log files, I guess). In any event, there was absolutely nothing Skitch on my machine, but it was still on the storage drive I use for Time Machine backups. I'm a retired geek so didn't put a lot of stock in what the first-tier Apple Care girl told me. Even they are often reading from a script until you get past their front line. Anyway, it's all fixed now. Thanks.
  9. OK...figured this all out. First, the fix about adding a computer name fixed the initial problem. The reason that Skitch still showed up in the App Store as "Installed" is still a mystery. One clue might be that it was off my computer...but still on Time Machine. I named the computer, typed "Skitch" in Spotlight, found it on the Time Machine storage drive. I copied if from there and pasted it into my Applications folder. Opened it, signed in, and all if well again. Evernote truly does need to work on how all this interacts. If I uninstall Skitch from my computer, it should be GONE...completely. And further, when I uninstall it the Mac App Store should show it available to install again...which it doesn't. When I called Apple Support they told me this was the developer's fault...not Apple's! It's bad enough Evernote has taken such a wonderful app and thoroughly ruined it...but now it can't even be uninstalled correctly.
  10. Joe, I'd like to try this, but earlier I uninstalled Skitch (MAS version) to see if a reinstall would help, but I can't reinstall it. When I go to the MAS | Purchased Apps it shows Skitch as "Installed" and greyed out, so I can't reinstall it, or delete it from that list.
  11. Up until recently, Skitch had been working just fine. Now, each time I open it and try to login in with my Evernote credentials, it crashes. I totally uninstalled it using AppCleaner and when I went to the App Store to reinstall it the App Store says it's still installed. Obviously tried rebooting, etc....nothing works. The App Store show Skitch as still installed but it's not. Next, I installed Skitch from the Evernote site and the same thing happens. Using the most recent version of Mountain Lion on a relative new iMac. Any ideas? Thanks.
  12. AndyP: sorry for the late reply but I never received an email about followup posts. I finally gave up trying to fix this and totally reinstalled Mountain Lion. No problems since.
  13. Andy, the only two in common are Dropbox and Wunderlist. I tried every way possible to isolate the culprit, even adding in all my apps to a new user account...nothing would duplicate the problem, it only happened when I was signed into my primary account. I have to assume it "was" something in the home folder causing it. I say "was" because I had been lusting after a new iMac anyway, so bought it, reinstalled all my apps, and the problem is gone. Not necessarily the most economical fix...but it did work <lol>.
  14. @Jackolicious: FWIW, if I create a new user on my Mac and install Evernote, it works perfectly. I may have to just wipe my Mac and start over again :-(
  15. I think I mentioned here ealier...I've installed and uninstalled (using AppCleaner) about a dozen times now and tried both the MAS version and the Evernote.com version, which I'm currently using. This is being caused by something at the base system level on my computer...not by Evernote, as evidenced by the Helper working in the Safe Boot mode. If I ever figure it out, I'll be sure to post the answer here.
  16. Although I haven't resolved this problem, I thought I'd post that I have isolated it to my machine...not Evernote itself. Perhaps what I found will help someone else figure this out. So, for step one I booted into Safe Mode and then launched "only" Evernote. This fixed it...the Menu Bar Helper worked just fine. Then I manually launched every app I normally have automatically load at startup...one app at a time, and after each app loaded I checked to see if the Evernote Helper was working. I finished loading all apps and the Evernote Helper was still working. OK...I figured I'd try that process in reverse, so I did a normal boot, confirmed the Evernote Helper was not working, then one by one, I closed every open app, checking the Evernote Helper after each one. When I was finished closing all the apps the Evernote Helper was still not running. One of these two processes of elimination should have found the culprit causing the Evernote Helper to not function. I also quit a few processes I knew were associated with apps, even though I'd closed the actual app.
  17. I just "completely" uninstalled the MAS version and installed the Evernote.com version. Signed in and now once in awhile it works and I'm able to click on the icons at the top (and they work) but most of the time nothing works. The one thing I can do consistently is type in the quick note window. i can't always save it as an Evernote note, but a few times I was able to. I think this is simply not ready for prime time yet. For whatever reason it's working for some people and not others, and unfortunately I'm one of the unlucky ones. Hopefully, Evernote will get this fixed at some point, but right now I feel they're a little like Google when there's a problem with a Google product. Google rarely admits to the problem...they just eventually fix it and those affected are happy again. At least that's what I'm hoping will happen with this problem.
  18. @catachresis: that it's working for you may have something to do with the fact you're using Snow Leopard. I'm using Mountain Lion. This is really frustrating as there is no real help options unless you use Evernote Premium. I may have to upgrade just to solve this problem.
  19. @Jackolicious: Here is a screenshot of what I see when I click on the menu bar elephant (I changed my desktop background to white for the screenshot so you could see it better). I see the top and right side of the quick note box...that's all.
  20. That's what I tried. Quit Evernote, quit Helper, made sure all processes were killed. Used AppCleaner to completely remove Evernote from my Mac (10.8.2). Went to the App Store, reinstalled.... Same thing here. I can click on the menu bar elephant and get the window, but nothing in it is clickable...it's just "there". Not even the gear icon can be clicked.
  21. There are two variations of instructions in that thread. I tried them both and neither fixed anything.
  22. @Jackolicious: Not only tried restarting, but "completely" uninstalled Evernote four times (using AppCleaner) then reinstalled, nothing works. Also tried uninstalling the Evernote.com version and installing the MAS version two of those four times...exactly the same thing. Also tried trashing the two evernote plist files a couple of times...that didn't work either. Currently using Mountain Lion 10.8.2 with all updates and currently have the MAS store version installed. Another hint...sometimes (like right now) when I click on the Menu Bar elephant, I don't even get the popup window...I just get a shadow outline of it on the top and right side, plus the little up-arrow that connects it to the elephant icon. The old menu bar helper worked just fine...this problem started with version 5.0.6.
  23. @catachresis: if you ever figure this out, please let me know here...I'll do the same. I'm a geek and have tried everything...complete uninstall/reinstall of Evernote, trashing the plist files, nothing works. The other symptom I have is that when I open the Evernote Helper window from the Menu Bar icon, in addition to nothing being clickable, in that white space there should be some light grey pre-formatted text that says "Type or drag files here to create a note...." and that is not displaying for me.
  24. I have the latest version 5.0.6 installed on my Mac, running OS X 10.8.2 Mountain Lion. When I click on the Evernote Helper in the Mac Menu bar, nothing in it is clickable. I can't click on the Gear icon for settings, or the other icons at the top of the window. I can type text in the box below the icons, but can't save it. Basically, it doesn't work at all. Any ideas?
  25. I am using the Evernote.com version of Evernote, not the one from the Mac App Store. When I click on the elephant icon in the Mac menu bar nothing is clickable. I have settings gear icon on the top left, then a monitor icon, a monitor with lines icon, and a microphone icon. Clicking on any of these icons does nothing. At the bottom is a "Save to Evernote" button that also does nothing. Any idea what's wrong? I've attached a screenshot of what I see.
