  1. Dtlow, it seems you did not read any of the other msgs in this thread. 95% of them express how the "assistance" we seek is simply to have EN on Android do what EN on Windows does, which is create the note title out of the first line for us. And here we are now 6 years since the first post, and still the feature is missing (the bug/annoyance remains). And with the coming new Windows client, we could even lose this feature there (since it seems a goal is a more "unified" client experience).
  2. With all due to respect to superguru gazumped, I will just say that while I have suffered this error myself occasionally, I definitely have NOT had to resort to such arduous steps as rebooting, uninstalling, or especially using Windows restore. What's worked for me has been much simpler : just kill the Evernote processes. In Windows, do that by opening Windows Task Manager to see the list of running processes (varies a bit per different Windows editions over the years), then sort that list by process name, and just delete (or right-click and choose "end task" on any listed Evernote processes. In doing that, I have then been able to re-open Evernote, and I've never found that I lost any notes or had any corruption. Still, YMMV and I don't guarantee that this will work for all occurrences of this error. But I would just say that it seems worth trying, before resorting to the more time-consuming steps listed above. :-)
  3. Come on. 4 years now and we're still waiting? This Auto-title by first line is how it works in windows. Why not the same option in android? And an *option* would be fine (like the other two current Auto-title options which are offered). That addresses those who don't want this, and further, the feature could only save the first line as the title if no other title was added before the note was saved. It's not just "an extra step" to do this ourselves. It's 8!--realize that what you're typing is in the body, tap it, choose the android copy/paste feature's icon for more options, choose "select all" , copy, click in title, paste, click back in note to continue. That's vs 0 steps on Windows. (and yes, one could say, just click in the title field before typing, but if we don't enter notes in the android app often, it's just not that simple, if you're used to the windows app's handling this. If it started out typing in the note, as a different option, maybe that would be different.) I've run into this a few dozen times the past few years and am just shocked this remains unresolved since first raised then.
  4. I am also having problems of random notes having problems showing rules, when added. Even in cases where the note previously had rules, some appear and some don't (in the same note), and the bigger concern is that if I try to add them (in a new place, or where they are "missing" but were there before), they are NOT added. Yet then in other notes, they are added no problem. I can say it's since the latest 6.8 GA update (and I am on the latest available now, Rules are critical to me, as I use them to separate each day's notes in a note I keep for each client I work for, so I would have noticed if this was a problem in the prior release (I don't know readily what I had before). Since it happens in some notes and not others, I suspect it's a problem related to other content in the note, but I have not been able to discern what the deciding factor is. I could provide sample notes to EN folks who may want to try to replicate or debug this (assuming that on exporting and then re-importing them, the problem would remain. I have not tried that yet.) Just wanted to share another note of support for the problem Craig reported above.
  5. Hmm, despite the encouraging comment from November 2015, this issue remains, a year later, and on the latest version (7.9.8). Been putting up with this for years, despite upgrading to premium. Come on, folks, we just want it to work like the desktop version. This would seem very easy to implement, and with another settings checkbox if you don't want to change the default behavior. Please? Big fan of EN otherwise. :-)
  6. I realize this is quite an old post, but in case other find it (as I have, now 3 years later), I want to note share some observations about customizing the widget (s). First, thanks for the ip on the "hide" feature. I'd missed that, too, and had no idea how to customize things to remove (or move) options. I see now that we can select one and then choose settings, to either "hide" it or simply select a new one to appear in its place. That was not at all obvious. :-) Indeed, if anyone was looking for a way to "move" options, that's just not an option (and perhaps it's an Android widget limitation). You have to do the dance I just mentioned. Second, FWIW, the tip using "hide" works not just with the "grid" widget but also the "small" widget. Maybe that was changed since this post was first written. That said, I find that in the "small' widget, hiding sometihng creates a blank space where it was (whereas in the grid widget, it shifts things to the left into its place). Finally, while this is a great way to get some key options listed on the widget, I'm bummed to see there's not just a bit more flexbility/capability. For instance, I was looking for a way to easily create a new audio or speech to text note. While the widget (and these tweaks) let me them at the top of the list of options in the widget, there's no way (it seems) to have these go into some particular notebook or be tagged a certain way by default. (And I don't even see a way to choose those after starting an audio note with the widget). My hope was to automate such audio note-taking so I'd not need to type while driving. Am I missing perhaps something in the widget setup or in EN itself? I know this went a bit beyond the original subject, but it's tangentially related (customizing the widget). :-)
