  1. Agreed - the inability to search both business and personal notebooks at the same time is frustrating. At least provide a toggle option. I got excited when I saw the following setting but apparently it means something different:
  2. @phils - You said: "It's worth mentioning that it's now easier in Evernote Windows to move a note than it was when I posted above. Now at the bottom of theCopy to Business... and Copy to Personal... dialog windows, there is a Delete original note checkbox option. So it no longer requires the extra step of deleting the note after you copy it." I'm confused though - the "Move to Notebook" option has been there for a long time. Why use Copy at all if the goal is to move the note?
  3. VERY important to ensure Evernote is not running when you back up the file. Despite most backup program's claims of open-file-backup ability, files that are very large tend to not back up properly. Make sure evernote.exe is not running.
  4. There are a couple of ways to do this that are not yet mentioned here. 1. Using a text editor that can handle very large files, open your enex file and do a text search for the note in question, either by providing some title text, body text or the name of the attachment. Look at the note metadata to make sure you are at the right place. Following the name of the attachment, search for <data encoding="base64">Immediately after that will be the file encoded as base 64. Copy this entire string until up to but not including the </data> tag. May be very long depending on the size of the file. You can then use any number of tools to decode base 64 data such as http://www.motobit.com/util/base64-decoder-encoder.asp to do the decode. Paste that data in and save the binary file. It should be a mirror image of the file you are looking for. See https://blog.evernote.com/tech/2013/08/08/evernote-export-format-enex/ for details of the enex file format in case what you see differs from what I explained. 2. Do the same as in option 1 except that when you find the note, copy the entire note information and make a new text file, manually creating an enex file. Paste that data into the new file and then wrap it in the proper enex document tags as shown in https://blog.evernote.com/tech/2013/08/08/evernote-export-format-enex/ . Save the file and you will have the single note in a enex file of it's own. Then import that.
  5. @andreb - I don't think it's an intended restriction; I think it's a bug. Like you mentioned it appeared to be fixed and now it is broken again. What is particularly frustrating to me is that by definition the Evernote Business product is by defintion about collaboration, and that function seems broken.
  6. @andreb - No problem. Please see my post at http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/37565-issue-with-evernote-links-in-business-notebooks-eb-ticket-12008/page-2#entry221195 (I just edited it). Do your links work even when used fully inside the evernote ecosystem? I find that business note links don't work at all except for the creating user.
  7. @Brickey - I don't believe that is correct. When an Evernote link (or any type of link for that matter), eg evernote:///view/370569/s4/fed1ff48-cd20-4da3-8d12-1ff4f34f4e26/fed1ff48-cd20-4da3-8d12-1ff4f34f4e26/66091b09-fcd8-4966-a530-20e82d13dbbc is clicked on, it is sent to the operating system shell which determines who is the handler of the URL prefix, in this case "evernote:", and then hands it off to the application that is registered to handle that type of url. The URL's host, whether it be Outlook, IM, or Evernote doesn't "know" anything about the type of the link and the link doesn't know anything about it's host. It's handled by the operating system. (I am describing the process in Windows - Mac will have some functionally equivalent mechanism.) This is the same for "http://..." URLs, "ftp://..." URLs, etc. All are handled the same way. The links to business notes do not work even if they are used within other business notebooks - same error.
  8. Patrick - Your use case with regard to storing files is interesting to me. I've always kept my files in the file system (and sync'd them around with some tool or another) and my notes in OneNote/Evernote. (This is just out of habit, not intent.) Do you use Evernote for file storage even when they're not related to some type of note, e.g. purely for storage and retrieval? If so, curious more about how you organize them in Evernote. Regards
