  1. Yeah I had been doing that, but I have a lot of notebooks, and I thought this might be a automatic and free alternative that keeps the notebook data intact. But if it is difficult restore with those files I may keep doing it the old way, it doesn't take more than five minutes to export my most important notebooks, I just forget to do it.
  2. Hi, Google just launched a new app that replaces Google Drive called 'Backup and Sync'. I just wondered if it is at all useful if you for whatever reason wants a "third" place to keep a copy of the database. I'm not really willing to pay for time machine or an external drive during this time. I just pointed the app toward the Evernote database in the Application Support finder folder. Might this disrupt something or is it a safe way to backup a database?
  3. Sierra Update

    Thank you! The 'clear all history' didn't occur to me but those instructions did the trick.
  4. Sierra Update

    I can confirm this. It is after the latest Sierra update (10.12.4) that the Evernote Web clipper simply stops working. As in when clicking on it nothing happens. The other person I heard of was also using a similar (2013ish) MacBook Air but I have no idea if that is relevant. Tried uninstalling the clipper and restarting Safari but it just won't work anymore.
  5. Can Evernote stop asking me to log in so frequently?

    I am now a days asked to log in to the safari Web Clipper everyday. Often several times a day. In the past it has always periodically asked me to log in. guess because safari doesn't save cookies forever (deletes monthly?) but to log several times a day is ridiculous. On the plus side it seems that since the Clippers update it saves my preferences after I've logged in. So it doesn't try to 'smart file' and I don't have to reconfigure it every time. I'm not sure if the increase in being logged out has to do with new Web Clipper or that I've begun using the 'Freedom' app which blocks web access.
  6. Background problem

    Improvement? It's been a while since I got a new version and considered it an improvement. The latest release did not fix the background issue for me but in addition takes away the ability to move note windows to a different desktop when Evernote is used in full screen mode and removes the unified notebook list for Evernote Business. Yes. I've gotten the update as well and the problem is still unaddressed, along with the strange window management. My only workaround is taking the note fullscreen then exiting full screen. Occasionally it will then appear on the intended space. How this would be more intuitive than just dragging it where we wanted is difficult to say. About the background problem. This thread is over two months old. I have posted about it in official threads, people have been seeking support for this going back to Evernote 6.0 as far as I can tell. I find it remarkable that Evernote hasn't even commented on the issue, while still answering queries about even minor bugs which doesn't effect the whole interface, like this does. Evernote, even if you has no idea what we're talking about, please tell us. Did you try to replicate? I have no idea how to reach you since you don't respond in the feedback thread. People here have been posting illustrative pictures, example of how to replicate the bug. This is pretty darn well documented. Should we individually file support tickets? What is the system here? I'm not impatient but I love using Evernote. I rather keep pestering you rather than giving up over something that appears to be so fixable.
  7. Background problem

    Bumping this, has anyone who's gotten 6.2 been seeing any improvement? Waiting for anyone at Evernote to weigh in on this.
  8. Background problem

    This appears to be true. To a point. It doesn't look 'good' as it's more grey than it is supposed to be (there is supposed to be some translucency). But at least it is a stable grey and colours do not seem to leak in randomly when you do this. Cool find!
  9. Evernote Mac and El Capitan Issues

    Hi. Since nobody from Evernote has responded to Paqto's "Background problem" thread I'm going to be that guy and repeat my latest post here where it might be seen. Paqto it seems didn't know what causes the problem or how to obviously replicate the effect but I've found this fairly reliable: 1. Log in to a mac running Yosemite or El Capitan 2. Open Evernote and make it either full-screen - or allow it to have it's own 'desktop space'. 3. Go back to space 1 and have a program selected (like safari, or an app you can tell is selected because its transparent) 4. While that app is in the foreground press ctrl + up arrow key, then ctrl + right arrow key (if Evernote is to the right). You ought now to see Evernote more or less looking like it is supposed to look, with transparency around the notes, not just the sidebar. 5. Press ctrl + down arrow key. If you are able to replicate this bug you'll at this moment see the transparency break or vanish. This is one of the more dependable ways that I can replicate the effect but as in the original post there are other artefacts just during normal use. Is Evernote seeing these artefacts or are we alone?
  10. Background problem

    If the Evernote team or anyone would like to replicate this, I got this working for me: 1. Log in to a mac running Yosemite or El Capitan 2. Open Evernote and make it either full-screen - or allow it to have it's own 'desktop space'. 3. Go back to space 1 and have a program selected (like safari, or an app you can tell is selected because its transparent) 4. While that app is in the foreground press ctrl + up arrow key, then ctrl + right arrow key (if Evernote is to the right). You ought now to see Evernote more or less looking like it is supposed to look, with transparency around the notes, not just the sidebar. 5. Press ctrl + down arrow key.

  11. Background problem

    Thanks for the reply. I think El Capitan runs great, even better than Yosemite in fact, so its hard to tell whether 'reduced transparency' makes any difference. And I like the transparency, I just wished that it worked in Evernote, because it does in every other app without problem. Perhaps I'll have to turn off the transparency because it is quite jarring that it only seems to work in random spots in Evernote and switch off when I interact. I do have my wallpapers set to rotate among a selection once a day, I could try switching that off.
  12. Background problem

    Since I'm willing to try everything to solve this problem I did a complete reinstall from nothing of OS X El Capitan, but after downloading Evernote I'm sad to report that the problem still persists. Again, when I switch to Evernote I see all the transparency but when I start interacting the transparency seems to gradually switch off.
  13. Background problem

    I am having this exact problem and been I've having it for a while. I believe SoftwareMarcus said he never heard of it but I know of some that do. I've really tried everything. Deleting Evernote and every Evernote-related file I could find. Getting the direct download version, upgrading to El Capitan, EVERYTHING. It is driving me insane, only Evernote behaves this way.
  14. mac Evernote for Mac 6: Design Feedback

    We have varying degrees of transparency on the other views but I don't see what you're seeing. This looks like an OS or hardware issue. What OS are you running and what is the hardware you're running on. Also are you seeing this on the laptop monitor or another monitor. My point is I don't think this is a universal issue that everyone is seeing. If anyone else is seeing this then please speak up so we can narrow down the issue. Also our transparency is very slight so you won't really be able to see the colors bleed through like you may be asking for. We reduced this because we were seeing some performance issues and some don't like the transparency. Anyway, lets try to narrow down the issue. Thanks for the reply. I am running the mid 2013 Macbook air on Yosemite 10.10.5. I assume it's an Evernote issue since I've never had a problem with transparency in other apps. I know that at least some other person here had the same issue. I believe I read it around the launch of version 6. I've fiddled with turning on / off 'reduce transparency', deleting the app, rebooting, finding and getting rid of all app related folders. While the app is running fine, It's a little maddening since I see Evernote looking like it's supposed to only to become grey as soon as I touch it. I don't have an external monitor but since it only affects the transparency in Evernote I doubt it's an hardware issue. The only option I could think of is a complete OS reinstall, but since El Capitan is right around the corner I'll hold off on that until it is released.
  15. mac Evernote for Mac 6: Design Feedback

    Update: I tried the direct download version, though that has the exact same issues. Does anyone have a solution or comment to this discoloration thing? Does anybody have 'normal' colours in Evernote yet? By that I mean having some sort of transparency outside of the sidebar.
