  1. Yes, reminders. Strange, isn't it? And I did get a notification tonight. I'm wondering if the problem could only happen if the reminder is set on the macOS app; or maybe if this was a note that existed before the update to 10.x, vs. a new note created since then. There are so many possible combination. Hopefully this one will resolve by itself, and thank you for chiming in! ‑Alex
  2. This one is rather strange: notifications have been working for me for a few days after upgrading to a Evernote 10, and after that, they stopped working. This might have coincided with the upgrade to iOS 14, but I am not sure. The items for which I should get notifications are showing just fine in Evernote itself, and in Settings notifications are allowed for Evernote. Anyone had a similar problem? Any tips on how to get notifications to work again? ‑Alex
  3. Thank you @DTLow. I did a search before posting, but apparently failed! And I've upvoted this feature request, as suggested. I agree: constant maintenance and pruning is key. I've also taken the habit of only putting in Evernote text that I type myself, and pretty much only allow short quote that I find particularly well worded as an exception to this rule. Summarizing and rewriting ideas "in my own words" helps me understand the concepts more deeply, and makes me use words that I am then more likely to also use in a search. Also I don't have a lot of attachements: the vast majority of my files are in Drive instead of Evernote, and I'm linking to Drive from Evernote. But occasionally, having a PDF or image inline is really convenient, but the downside is that I then waste time when those attachments come up as the result from a search. Nothing is perfect! ‑Alex
  4. I am sure that some of you consider Evernote's ability to search though attachments, even doing its own OCR on images and PDF, as godsend. For me it is the opposite: most of the time, I just want to search through my notes, the stuff I have written, and want to exclude occurrences of the word I am searching for in documents I might have attached for easy reference. Is this possible? Without this, I feel even more the temptation not to store attachments in Evernote, which makes the product less valuable. ‑Alex
  5. Well, well, you're right; I thought that San Francisco could only be used by apps for UI elements, and couldn't be "installed" as a regular font. But I was wrong. I could just install it and then select it from the Evernote preferences. Thank you for the hint! ‑Alex
  6. Is it possible to switch the default font for notes on the Mac to be San Francisco (the "default" OS font)? Right now, I have it set to Helvetica (see screenshot attached). I can change the font, but don't see San Francisco from the font selection menu. Am I missing something? ‑Alex
  7. Just after starting this thread, I saw the following tweet from Shawn Baek (see attached). This is exactly the situation I'd like to avoid. Source. ‑Alex
  8. Thank you for the info; hopefully that Windows feature will make it to Mac at some point. Could you elaborate on how the feature works on Windows? By "based on date accessed", do you mean that you can set it to locally keep all files accessed in the last, say, 3 months, and everything else will be kept in the cloud and available for download on demand? ‑Alex
  9. I would like to be able to tell Evernote: "only keep locally on my Mac, say, 20 GB of the most recently accessed attachments, and the rest can stay in the cloud". But I am not seeing such an option. Does this mean that Evernote for macOS always keeps all my attachments locally? The reason for me not wanting to keep all the attachments locally is that the space taken by attachments adds up, and after years can end up taking quite a bit of space which I would prefer to keep available for other uses. I don't need or want attachment that I haven't accessed for months, or maybe even years, to be stored locally, as those mostly exist for archival. But is this possible with Evernote for Mac? Or should I think about it differently, and store attachments somewhere else, say in Google Drive, and downgrade from my current Premium to a Basic subscription, as I don't seem to need any the other features included with Premium subscription? ‑Alex
