  1. Encrypt it before you add it to Evernote. Still buyer beware.
  2. Yeah, Windows desktop V10 is not ready for prime time for moderately complex workflows that feature editing and updating in tight time frames. The overall slowness and built in lags for updates to be refreshed in the client make it mostly unusable for me. Fringe use case in the new world I suppose. It's a shame as 6.25.1 enabled me to be a productivity ninja with pretty much instantaneous access to information and task lists (reminder search based).. Orders of magnitude slower with V10. And, I have had more duplicate/conflict notes in the last month using V10 IOS and desktop 6.25.1 than I had in the prior 12 years I've used EN. And I am diligent in trying to sync when I enter the IOS platform. Problem is you just can't tell when everything is synced. EN says it is, but it isn't as I have viewed notes I know had changes which aren't as yet changed. PITA.
  3. I am still on legacy which may be the issue I suppose. Link starts out https://links.notifications.evernote.com/u/click?_t=84b and a bunch more, probably 6 or 7 times as many characters in four wrapped lines. Yes on IOS whenever I press the link in the email I am prompted to open in the app. On Windows I am presented with Continue with desktop app but nothing happens when clicking on that option. Understand no support if this is a legacy thing. Fortunately for me this is not that important. I have an email reminder via FollowUpThen and a saved search for Today which accomplishes the same thing. Weird though that a link works in new but not old. Thanks.
  4. Sad news here, on my iPhone clicking the link in the mail sent me to a browser to sign into EN. Signed in and from that point on each time I click a link I have to press the allow to open in EN button from the browser. Pretty much useless as it is a PITA. 🤷‍♂️ Sigh.
  5. Maybe someone should closed the thread if the issue is closed. Open a new one on how S-L-O-W, EN web can be to load.... Which if you have to wait long enough could be confused with not loading. I was having a sandwich so I though I might run a test. It took 5 minutes 39 seconds for EN web to load. 5 minutes 39 seconds.. And this happens each time I go to the web, though I don't go often for obvious reasons. It's like the movie 50 First Dates, every day is a start over. Methinks after minute one a reasonable user might think that EN is not going to load. Don't mean to hijack the thread but I'm too lazy to open a new one. I'm sure there's one out there anyway. Internet connection is fine. 6.25.1 desktop is still instantaneous for me and my 56k notes, other than when I edit a PDF and save it back. Could be something related to the app perhaps. 🤷‍♂️ -
  6. And it is just S L O O O O W, performance and process. For me anyway. Still using legacy.
  7. I don't have any large text notes, mostly shorter notes or notes containing attachments. And V10 has been miserably slow whenever I have stuck my toe in the water. Then quickly back to the safe haven of 6.25.1. Might want to add note quantity to the list of slow downs which may be the issue in my case. And maybe highly interactive use cases, GTD and the equivalent. Whatever, V10 is not viable for my use case at this point in time.
  8. Pretty straightforward. You can backup your DB if you like. Make sure you have the 6.25.1 version of EN saved, or you can get it from filehippo. Install V10 and give it a test. I've done it on a backup machine, which is actually higher performance than my main machine (a 3 year old Surface pro versus an 8 year old docked Lenovo X230 laptop). The Lenovo is very fast with 56k notes on old EN Use RevoUninstaller or the like to remove V10 if you don't care for it. Don't edit notes with links in them, that can cause issues as links aren't that well implemented at this point. Your call, may not be worth the effort. Frankly I don't think I will do another test until early November. The forums aren't singing the praises of productivity at this point. Too many functional and speed reports to my liking. Particularly from long time users. 🤷‍♂️
  9. @WeCanLearnAnything It’s a use case thing in some respects. For me V10 is simply too slow performance wise and is click heavy on top of that. While missing features. In my use case everything just takes longer, much longer. With EN being a hub for me that is untenable I have dipped my toe in the Windows V10 pool every couple of months and have seen minor at best improvements. But still painfully slow each time, again for my use case. Throw your mouse at the wall slow. IOS has made noticeable progress other than the “has my stuff synced yet?” issue. I continue to use 6.25.1. At this point I will use it until it sunsets. Works like a charm. But I have begun to build a parallel data base of all the PDFs of the paperless bit of my use case. I would not want to do that export with V10, it might take forever So safety warrants I do it now. Net of it all you can fire it up and see how it works for you.
