  1. I have a note in "Shared with Me" that I can't delete. It's from 2015 and about some furniture it seems. I don't recognize the person with whom it's shared. I'm not interested in keeping the note at all. But all the delete options are grayed out. How can I get rid of it from my Evernote?

    Nope, you can only display and update content in pre-existing tables

    As per @gazumped, I have templates set up with default tables.  I can copy these to new notes

    Table creation continues to be a missing feature in IOS

    Ah. Disappointed yet again. You can do this in Notes on the iPad. I guess I'll have to some copy the table from Evernote to Notes and use it there.

    I seem to find myself going more and more to Notes lately... Sigh.

  3. Yes. In my case it was a single stuck note that wasn't syncing because of one character. If you look through the list of all notes, look for any with a "sync arrow" in the top right. You can export that note and delete and or do what I did was see if there were any funny characters preventing syncing.

    These were the actual instructions given to me by Evernote support, but it turned out I didn't need to do all that when I found and fixed the one bad note. After fixing it it immediately synced.


    To rebuild your Evernote for Mac database, follow these steps:

    Export unsynced notes and/or local notebooks (if you have any):

    1. Select all unsynced notes, or each local notebook, then right-click and select Export Notes…
    2. Choose 'Evernote XML Format (.enex)' next to Format, then Savethe file to your desktop
      • Detailed instructions here

    Move your existing Evernote database:

    1. Open Evernote for Mac
    2. Press and hold the Option key on your keyboard, then select Help > Troubleshooting > Open Database Folder (keep this folder open)
    3. Select Evernote > Quit Evernote from the menu bar
    4. Move the numbered folder from the database folder to your computer's desktop
      • If you have more than one numbered folder, move each one
    5. Open Evernote and log in to your Evernote account

    Evernote will download all of your synced notes from the servers and create a new database on your computer. You can then import any exported notes by selecting File > Import Notes from the menu bar.

  4. Hello. As mentioned above, I started with a support ticket, but support says they are backed up a week and suggested trying Twitter support. I tried Twitter support and they said to open a support ticket. So I posted here, and you're saying to "reach out to support" but that would just take me back to the beginning. Support has all this information. They just aren't responding.

  5. Evernote support seems to be missing in action. I opened up an official support ticket 3 days ago, but at the support site they said it would take a week to get back (I'm a premium member). The site also suggested trying Twitter help, so I wrote them yesterday, and they said I should open an official support ticket. Why doesn't Evernote add enough support staff to get back to people within a reasonable amount of time? Their support has been slow forever. 

    Anyway, I'm turning here to see if anybody has ideas in the meanwhile.

    Evernote on my Mac is constantly spinning and stopping the sync wheel and showing a red "!" mark when it stops. I assume this means a problem with syncing.

    The activity log is showing messages like this:

    Any idea what I can do to get rid of the error?

  6. I have a note which contains the following geeky content:




    10s probes interval and 5 probes max should be OK. It leaves it chance
    to a very bad network to recover and won't keep a clogged connection
    alive to much.
    So - 
    DD_TCP_KEEPALIVE_TIME=120 DD_TCP_KEEPALIVE_INTVL=10 DD_TCP_KEEPALIVE_PROBES=5 LD_PRELOAD=/usr/local/lib/libdontdie.so ./start-webx



    If I search for just dontdie no results are returned - the note is not found. But if I search for libdon the note is found. 
    Why? Does Evernote only search or index word beginnings?
  7. I've tried for several weeks now, but it's really hell trying to use Evernote for class presentations on an iPad.

    Try as I hard as I can, I just can't get the fonts to all be large enough to be seen on a projector. Then I have to stop and try to edit the note in the middle of class and the editing is really difficult with it jumping all over to different places in the note.

    Evernote is ok for just scraps of data and things. But it's terrible for presentations. I need to find something else.

  8. I gave up on OneNote for various reasons and am trying as best I can to do class presentations in Evernote. But I still have problems with sections of the notes having small text when presented on my iPad (via projector).

    On my Mac I set the default font to 24 point. I figured that ought to do it. But when I sync, there are many sections of text on the iPad which end up formatted as the smallest font size. For those sections I need to manually select them and from the formatting icon choose the largest font instead.

    Is there a way of simplifying this?


  9. Last night I edited a class presentation on my Mac. 

    After finishing I waited a bit and made sure it look ok on my iPad. So far so good. 

    I'm on the train now headed for class and I thought of something I wanted to add, so opened the iOS app on my iPhone, waited until it looked like the note had synced,  and added a picture.  

    When I was done I scanned through the note, saw some old content and a "conflict" warning. 

    The content is all there but it's sort of scrambled and I'll have to edit it in my iPad after I arrive. 

    Isn't there some way of avoiding these kinds of sync problem?

  10. The default font size for my Mac client is set to 14 pt. When preparing a presentation, I'd like the size to be 24 pt. So I manually select and change the font size to 24 point.

    Then below it I try pasting in some text using "paste and match formatting" but the text always gets pasted at 14 point.

    Is there any way to get "past and match formatting" to work?



  11. The note I'm editing is a bit long I admit (3.5 MB with images, 1,183 words and 5,623 characters).

    It's class notes for a lecture for a volunteer class I do on Sundays. I thought I would try to edit it on my new iPad 5th generation since I have a keyboard case. I'm trying to see how much "actual work" I can get done on the iPad.

    I noticed a few very severe slowdowns. The iPad doesn't have a "beachball" like the Mac, so I'm not sure what is happening. But I selected about 30 lines of text (song lyrics) in the middle of the note and then touched the formatting option to center the text. It just hung there. I waited like 10 minutes and then finally gave up.

    Are there known issues with the speed of formatting and editing longish notes? I'm not talking about novel size. I'm talking one class lecture size.

    The note in question did sync to my Mac and I was able to select and center those lines instantly on with my Evernote Mac client.



  12. It just doesn't seem to be syncing over to the iPad. At least not in a reasonable time. I just did some more editing about a half hour ago. I synced on the Mac. Just now I looked at the iPad and my new content hasn't synced over - even though it says it synced "just now."

    At least the Mac note didn't get messed up this time. But I wonder why it's not syncing well. Syncing has always been one of the major things I liked about Evernote. <_<
