  1. @C6REW: Thanks for the sympathy Yeah, we both had a little meltdown about it! So much data to sort through! We could definitely do some diagnosis, and may at some point - frustrating to need to though! @gazumped: Nope! This is two separate accounts (both with a Premium subscription - well, up until this episode!), with a note shared over Work Chat.
  2. Hey @DTLow - we're both on the Mac. While we have both edited the note, it's been only while the other isn't touching it - not simultaneously - and we always make sure to sync after closing.
  3. Hello, I have a bone to pick with you, Evernote team: three times now, a big document that my partner has created in Evernote which she's shared with me has been obliterated by Evernote's terrible "Conflicting modification" idiocy, totally nonsensically. The previous time it happened, there were a whopping twenty one spurious conflicts - it took over an hour to sort through each one and manually merge the changes. This involves first being on the ball enough to spot the well-hidden "Conflicting modification" text at the end of the document, then manually scrolling through the thing looking for the "Conflicting modification" titles, and copying out the content between that and the next one into a new note, then scrolling through each and comparing side by side: twenty one times. It's happened again today with a different document, with six different conflicts, dated from weeks ago, for no apparent reason. Of course, we take great care to have one of us sync first and close a shared note before the other opens it, and still this happens. We've since taken to using offline notebooks for now, which means we can't collaborate on check-lists and such, because this bug renders Evernote utterly unusable, and unable to be trusted unless it's offline. This, of course, defeats the purpose of Evernote - we might as well use Pages documents. I can't believe this abysmal piece of work made it through QA; those responsible really should not be working in technology, surely. Anyone else having their data wiped out by this *****? We shouldn't have to put up with this nonsense from you, Evernote! Do you guys even use your own product?! Appalled.
  4. Hello! When using the share sheet for a PDF in Evernote, the set of available actions is quite limited: If one compares this list to the share sheet for a PDF in the built-in Notes app, there are a lot more options: Similarly, when using the share sheet in Evernote for other kinds of files (e.g. Numbers documents), the list of options is quite extensive. This is a problem because I'm usually working with PDFs, and there are actions I'd like to be able to perform on PDFs which are unavailable from Evernote, but work with other apps. I wonder if incorrect parameters are being passed to UIActivityViewController? Cheers! Michael
  5. For reference, you can stop it doing that by deleting ~/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote/accounts/www.evernote.com/######/external-edits/
  6. It's been fixed internally, next update will sort it out. Until then, try the workaround above (#8).
  7. I've reported it, and finally got a response, happily - I've provided the team with some console output which indicates what the problem is, so it should be pretty easy to fix, with a bit of luck. In the process, I made a discovery: those notes with Numbers spreadsheets that I dragged out, edited, and dragged back in, no longer have this problem! It's only the older notes that exhibit the issue. So, try dragging the spreadsheet to the Desktop, then drag it back in (replacing the original).
  8. I figured out a workaround, happily - drag the document to the desktop, double-click to unzip (and delete the original zip file), edit the document, then delete the original from the Evernote notebook, and drag the edited document back in. Not the greatest workflow ever, but at least I can finally update my company's financials =) Evernote guys: please get on this, it's awful.
  9. I'm having the same problem, with Numbers documents. Upon saving an opened document, the "Creating ZIP Archive" dialog opens and closes constantly: http://cl.ly/2X2F0p2q3a2D When saving, the following appears in the console: filecoordinationd[376]: NSFileCoordinator only handles URLs that use the file: scheme. This one does not:(null)--- last message repeated 3 times ---Evernote[65803]: BUG in libdispatch client: kevent[EVFILT_VNODE] delete: "Bad file descriptor" - 0x9Force-quitting Evernote and relaunching doesn't help - the dialogs appear again. The only way to stop it is to force quit, and delete the ~/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote/accounts/www.evernote.com/######/external-edits/ folder. I'm now unable to keep and edit documents in Evernote, which is a bit awkward.
