  1. Regarding sync lag, I should explain that I run two machines side by side and sometimes three, each with a second monitor controlled by a single mouse and keyword using Mouse Without Borders. And that -- for my purposes -- in the past ,sync has been plenty fast enough for my purposes and I was never conscious of a significant lag as I avoided having the same note open on more than one monitor. Interesting thought. I guess that is why I was gobsmacked by finding my content inexplicitly missing.
  2. > it's just the header that syncs until the note is actually accessed at which point the content is downloaded. Well, it was not downloaded, and that was a surprise that wasted my time and I have wasted enough time on this. Anytime I post about problems I have with Evernote, hoping to be helpful, someone tells me that it is my own stupid fault. I guess I'm just not smart enough to use Evernote. Thanks for pointing that out. I'm done here.
  3. While that is true and can be observed but will not be seen by everyone, especially, those who take the description at face value, then come across the option to sync automatically further down and assume it takes precedence and is unqualified. This is order and separation is confusing , seeing as selecting it does not grey out the option to sync automatically or indicate that only a partial sync is being requested going forward. I think to most, the term syncing, unless qualified, means bringing all copies into conformity. Syncing 'headers only' should be located under the sync se
  4. Found the problem. The issue is not a bug as it seems. It is apparently a feature! I discovered that the "enable on demand sync" checkbox in options is not enabling a manual sync on demand but disabling automatic sync even when automatic sync is selected. This option means that a new note on the server is not downloaded. Only the header is. Only when the note is opened is a request made to the server! Tough if you are offline and counting on using it. I discovered after some searching that his option was checked on my recent installation on this new laptop. This setting
  5. Thanks. Understood. Network was fine and fast. As I say, headers were loaded and the All Notes list showed them there. However, the contents were not there when I needed them. In the past my impression was that notes were synced as quickly as they were changed with no obvious delay. Maybe I was wrong and in this case, the notes were clipped web pages. Regardless, this is a major failure from my perspective and if it happens again, I am going to have to reconsider my longstanding relationship with Evernote. I can't be going from machine to machine checking and syncing every n
  6. Very disappointed in the sync. I did a lot of web page saves from my browser on a different computer last night and expected them to be available on this laptop laptop on my flight this morning. .They weren't, even though both machines were on with Evernote running for at least and hour after I did the saves and both are set to supposedly sync automatically. The headers were there, so it looked as if the machine had synced, but the content was not downloaded! After landing, I synced manually and the machine worked for about fifteen seconds and now the content is still not here and the head
