  1. Programming Error on Survey I received an Evernote email survey... "we’re asking you to share your feedback by October 29 by taking a 20-minute survey." So I got into the first few questions and then get locked out due to poor programming. The question states (Select all that apply). So I tried to check the selections for * Personal use and * Other (Specify) But after selecting Personal Use and trying to add the Other with the info field filled in, the program removes my first selection. Suggestion to Evernote: When you hire out a Survey to a 3rd party, do an internal test of the survey before sending it out to your customers.
  2. I use the Google Chrome browser on my laptop. Under settings, I did not find anything that controls tags. I also scrolled through the advanced settings. I thought the solution might be with Extensions (at bottom of settings). But when I clicked on the details for the Evernote Web Clipper extension (version 7.12.1), I did not see anything for tags.
  3. Here is a refreshing video on the benefits of Evernote. He points out the strengths of Evernote. I miss the vitality from some of the former managers of Evernote, but I do agree with Steve Dotto's comments. https://dottotech.com/evernote-vs-world/
  4. I recently did a full-blown Evernote Windows reinstall. My screen captures are now trying to add tags automatically. The smart feature is not very smart and assigns non-related tags. I want to be the decision maker. Is there a way to completely turn off this auto-tagging?
  5. I estimate that I change at least 75% of all created dates (to reflect the actual correct date). * Scanned receipts always get a revised created date * Future appointments * Past activities, including vacation summaries * Genealogy information * Medical notes * Even web-captures that involve past or future political events All done on Evernote Windows.
  6. Why is Evernote Support silent on the SSD solution? I can't find anything in their blogs that recommends swapping out a hard drive with a new SSD to solve the Not Responding problem. Even Google search can't find anything from an Evernote employee.
  7. Sure. SSD's are great. But what I find frustrating is if a SSD solves the Not Responding problem, why is Evernote silent on suggesting swapping a Hard Drive with a Solid State Drive? I have never seen a formal comment from any Evernote employee recommending the swap.
  8. I've never seen a formal recommendation from Evernote to switch from a hard drive to a solid state drive to solve the "Not Responding" problem. The only solutions I have received from Support over the years is the standard Evernote reply - do a complete uninstall, reinstall and sync. Even though I always send my Activity Log with my support request, they have never mentioned the problem is my memory or HDD.
  9. A negative search can be powerful. Did you try the following search: tag:places -tag:birds
  10. I started using Evernote as my second brain 11 years ago as my surrogate memory or answering the question “When did X happen?” Due to the number of notes, I do not use the phone version or the web version. Everything is done on the desktop version on my computer. Tags and a structured title are vital for locating specific notes. In 2014 I began encountering the dreaded "Evernote (not responding)" problem. To kill some time I would go to the kitchen and make a cup of coffee and return. After several unsuccessful Support requests, a higher level tech person suggested I split my notes into 2 Evernote accounts. Transferring notes from my primary account to my secondary account took several months due to the Basic version cap restriction. It's not as bad now, but I do still run into the Evernote (not responding) problem when I open Evernote in the morning. So my work-around solution is to keep the program running all day long and never shut it down. My secondary account (Basic Evernote) includes archived stuff and 10 years of political web clippings from a variety of sources. My Current Note Count: Premium account = 29,299 (1,500 tags) Basic account = 23,800
  11. Yes, I had the same option when I tried the Beta. I had several problems with the Beta, so I went back to the Classic web. I do not consider either web version to be viable for power users with lots of notes and who use Evernote often throughout the day.
  12. In the Evernote web settings, I only see ACCOUNT (web beta or classic) GET MORE (points) SECURITY PAYMENT
  13. Time to get a new computer. I think I know the answer, but wanted to get someone else's viewpoint. I've used Evernote Windows Desktop exclusively (55,000 notes) for many years. Would I be able to run Evernote Desktop on a new Google Chromebook? It appears everything is in the cloud and my only solution would be the Evernote web version (which would not be acceptable). Thank you https://www.google.com/chromebook/
  14. Just 5 days between the beta 1 Windows version and the full blown public release? * July 23 - Today we released Windows 6.20 beta 1. * July 28 - Let's update your app. A new version is available 6.20.2 Public (3008626) I am used to seeing Evernote generate some conversation and feedback as the beta versions are tested on and then updated with corrections. I realize some will think this is a can't win request. Too slow = complaints and now Too fast also generates concern. I prefer to have the heavy-weight users put a few weeks of time and effort into refining the betas so that the public version is rock solid.
  15. I like to use Workflowy.com to create, edit, and store my outline. If I have a need, I will copy the appropriate portion to Evernote.
