  1. Evernote (306423) Prerelease (CE Build ce-1.36.3494). Windows 10 Home version 1709 OS Build 16299.125 I put files with "jpeg" extension into my Evernote import folder. It imported them. I opened the note, which showed the jpeg but rotated 90 degrees counter clockwise from what I had seen in the original file and from what I wanted. I right-clicked and selected "rotate clockwise" from the menu. There was some blinking and the picture disappeared and the note body had only the "Drag files here or start typing." text in it. The image disappeared both from the note panel and from the preview in the note list. I did it with the second file. Same result. I re-imported the two notes, and used the "Duplicate note" feature to copy one of them. I then did the "rotate clockwise" on all three of them. In all three cases the jpeg file (the image) disappeared.
  2. My *speculation* about the problems I was having (see my earlier message) is as follows: When Evernote started to work on the search it started to pull in the local indexes or other non-content data used to make searching efficient. Since I have 20,000 notes (I've been using Evernote since 2008) and many of my notes are PDFs even merely the indexes are huge. So my *speculation* is that the issue is not disk space (as some people have suggested above; I have a 1TB hard disk) but rather the size and complexity of the local indexes (in relationship to RAM? I have 4GB). So (to fabricate an over-simplified image) in order to find recent lunch menus at the Library of Congress Evernote was sucking into RAM the Library's whole card catalog, or at least a large chunk of it. With on-demand sync I will have only a small part of the card catalog locally instead of the whole nine yards; the rest will be in the sky.
  3. I have discovered a minor bug in the on-demand download feature. So far the behavior has remained constant. (304452), Windows 10 Home version 1607 14393.693. Before I started to use the beta I uninstalled Evernote completely and manually renamed my Evernote data folder out of the way to start from scratch. On my Android phone I use an app called PostEver2. One enters an item into it and sends the item. If there is no PostEver2 note for the current date it creates a new note. If there is an existing note, it appends a timestamp and the new text to the existing note. On-demand downloading successfully downloads the new note but does *not* ever download a new version of the note after it has been appended to. Evernote on the web, and Evernote on all my Android devices, correctly show the modified note.
  4. I'm very pleased about the on-demand sync for the Evernote Windows client. I don't think it is a question only or primarily of disk space. My experience for quite a while is that when I start to type a search term into the box Evernote would suddenly become unresponsive for a long time (minutes) then come back. I have 20,000 notes. Part of the problem is that my PC is poorly configured and it often becomes I/O bound. I was avoiding the desktop Evernote and doing things on the web because of the problems. I uninstalled Evernote and installed the beta several days ago. I'm very happy with the results. Evernote has been quite clever at not downloading a gazillion things. I have been doing my normal use of Evernote, which does *not* involve frequent searching of my whole note-base. The searches I have done have been quick enough and accurate. No more minutes of disk pounding.
