  1. Actually I just noticed the Evernote web and Windows app are in symc, it just took a while for them to update.
  2. Hi, I noticed that my Evernote for the web photo/avatar (which seems to update the one for this forum if I change it) is different from the one on my Windows Evernote when I look at Account Info (see attached for my Windows avatar which I never changed). Are they supposed to sync? How is the Windows app avatar used?
  3. Hi, No prob. just thought I'd run it by the forum in case anyone else had the same problem and managed to fix it. Ticket number is 212724 many thanks.
  4. Hi, It was working fine up until 2 or 3 weeks ago, now the codes generated by Google Authenticator aren't recognsed by Evernote. I tried disabling 2 factor authentication and setting up again but same problem. Can anyone help? I raised a support ticket but so far it's still unresolved. I have accounts set up in Google Authenticator for Facebook, Lastpass, Dropbox and others, and they all work fine. I'm using the Android app.
  5. The ones shown as thumbnails on the wallpaper page are for iPad/iPod touch only, hence why they're not included in the zip download. You can still get to them by just clicking the thumbnails.
  6. The Windows built-in encryption has the following limitations, so I'd say no it's not as good a TrueCrypt, especially the one about copying to a non-NTFS volume (eg. FAT) decrypts the file! These are from here: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/docu ... x?mfr=true Only files and folders on NTFS volumes can be encrypted. Because WebDAV works with NTFS, NTFS is required when encrypting files over WebDAV. Files or folders that are compressed cannot also be encrypted. If the user marks a file or folder for encryption, that file or folder will be uncompressed. Encrypted files can become decrypted if you copy or move the file to a volume that is not an NTFS volume. Moving unencrypted files into an encrypted folder will automatically encrypt those files in the new folder. However, the reverse operation will not automatically decrypt files. Files must be explicitly decrypted. Files marked with the System attribute cannot be encrypted, nor can files in the systemroot directory. Encrypting a folder or file does not protect against deletion or listing files or directories. Anyone with the appropriate permissions can delete or list encrypted folders or files. For this reason, using EFS in combination with NTFS permissions is recommended. You can encrypt or decrypt files and folders located on a remote computer that has been enabled for remote encryption. However, if you open the encrypted file over the network, the data that is transmitted over the network by this process is not encrypted. Other protocols, such as Single Socket Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) or Internet Protocol security (IPSec), must be used to encrypt data over the wire. WebDAV, however, is able to encrypt the file locally and transmit it in encrypted form.
  7. Or open up your My Pictures folder alongside EN and just drag'n'drop the images.
  8. Right click on the notebook and select properties, then tick the default box.
  9. I know it's not quite what you're after, but how about putting these notes in a separate "current work" or "work in progress" notebook so they're always kept together, and separate from the less important stuff. You can easily drag & drop things in and out as required. Also if you're wanting a to-do list you can create one within a single note with tick boxes for each item.
  10. Sorry to ask what might seem an obvious question, but why do you want to drop things in certain positions in the list? Is it to achieve anything in particular or is it just that you're used to working that way in other applications?
  11. In your account properties you can specify a folder that EN will automatically import whatever you put there. If you put a text file there it will create a new note from the contents of the file (just tested this in Windows, not sure if it works the same way on a Mac).
  12. Have you tried paste special and choosing plain text?
  13. Subject date is there and editable in the Windows client (3.1), but it sounds like you're looking more for a to do/reminder type application like Remember The Milk rather than information storage?
  14. You can set EN to automatically delete the file after import.
  15. I believe this is fixed in version 3.5 and it takes on the font in use where it's pasted.
  16. I guess the idea is that notes are grouped together for easier browsing, as with nested folders in Windows Explorer. And when the tag hierarchy is 'closed', it occupies less space down the left column than if the tags were not nested.
  17. I would ask how reliably do you back up your own data? I would never rely 100% on any 3rd party. As long as what's in the 'cloud' is also on my hard drive, it gets backed-up via my own system along with everything else, Evernote database included. I don't think I would use any cloud based system that didn't allow me to also store the data locally.
  18. Another idea if you wanted them in separate notes - copy & paste them all into one note first, then highlight each URL in turn and drag the highlighted text down into a new empty note at the bottom of your list (this will make a copy). Then just delete the original URLs. I'm assuming you're on the Windows client.
  19. If you drag a PDF into a note with the right mouse button instead of the left, you have a menu option to attach - this will create an icon for the PDF in the note (like attaching a file to an email) instead of embedding the content. You can then double-click to open in your usual PDF reader software. EDIT: Just noticed you're talking about the Mac client, so not sure how this works in that context (is there even a right mouse button on a Mac!?)
  20. How are you backing up your other data at the moment? Whichever system you're using, just include the local copy of your Evernote database in that backup system. I backup my entire system to an external drive nightly, so when I started using Evernote, the database was automatically included in that backup.
  21. That feature isn't available at the moment, but apparently planned for the future.
  22. If the auto-fill aspect wasn't required, and password storage was just for record-keeping purposes, is there any reason to think the information would be any less secure in an encrypted note in Evernote, than a dedicated password storage system? Can we know the encryption method used by Evernote to assess its strength against other software?
  23. Not at the moment (even for premium) but apparently it's planned for the future.
  24. In the Windows client (3.1), new notes are created in whichever notebook is selected at the time (or the default notebook if "All notebooks" is selected). Same applies with the web interface except you can override this by picking another notebook from the drop-down menu in the new note. So best to click on the notebook you want before creating the note.
