  1. FYI - The new web version does not allow for printing. Using the Browser print function, Ctrl-P, right-click print etc will simply try to print the whole page as opposed to the actual note itself. I reverted to the old version instead.
  2. You're quite right, it just depends over which time-frame we're talking about. there are two factors. (1) Disk Space, as you rightly pointed out, is not really and issue for most desktop devices, however, one does run into limiting factors when it comes to database *volume* (2) - the more information a user acquires, the more slugging the device comes. Customers will (unfairly) expect the local search results to be at least as fast as a google search result. But a local desktop units could never match the power of google virtual server arrays. So there is a case for local indexing with file c
  3. Selective sync has been a major request for at least 5 years. Particularly by MacBook users with limited disk space. Like many other request, this has been ignored by Evernote ... so let me explain how this will play out. Step 1: After a lot of frustration, a premium customer is going to start putting their files onto Google drive and then linking it into an Evernote. Step 2: To conserve disk space on Google Drive, they will start converting these files to Google Doc files (which does not count against the 15 GB quota) Step 3: These users will begin to realise that they can
  4. If you have MS Office installed, this will give to the best results. In Evernote, share the note as an email - send it to yourself, specifically to your MS Outlook Client. Then open this email (in Outlook) and save it as an MHT file. Open the MHT format file with MS Word. This way you'll keep font and images. However, the images will be too large in the word document, so you'll have to resize them. If you export to MHT directly from Evernote, the images do not always appear when opening with MS Word. Summary Evernote >> email >> Outl
  5. Very true words, indeed. "It is the nature of immature men to want to fight and die for their cause, while it is the nature of mature men who wish proceed quietly for the theirs"
  6. @gazumped I'm laughing out loud as I type this, in response to "none of us have any idea whether or not this feature used to available" I suspect you're having a bit of fun with me you rascal .. but I'll take the bait ... It was a feature, I know, I used it for almost 2 years, daily (as did many others ) I know, because I specifically purchased the OfficeSuite app in order to do it. I did it because Evernote told me I could ( Here's the link: https://appcenter.evernote.com/app/office-suite-pro/android ) To be clear - I'm not crying over spilt milk here - I'm
  7. @Job135 Yes, I fully agree - he did say that .. to you, when you asked (as I did), presumably after a lot of strife and fiddling with your device. What I mean is: When was the "public announcement" made to all the customers that this feature would no longer be available .. or were we left to find out for ourselves without prior warning? Is this standard practice for Evernote, would a similar approach be taken in the future if other features no longer function? (Evernote Policy & Procedure) When exactly did this function break .. which date / software version of andro
  8. @Gazumped Firstly, I need to rest a bit, being somewhat exhausted in trying to convince the people at Evernote that there is actually a problem (When they know perfectly well that there is one, but are deliberately evasive / obtuse - either that or they have very short memories .. feature was put in place 4 years ago .. that's like yesterday on my time scale) Next Step: Raise Awareness, get collective voices to raise tickets and steadily push this up the priority tree. I'm doing this because I believe it is necessary for Evernote's long term survival. Seven years ago,despit
  9. So finally my original (Conspiracy theory 1) has been validated: Where I said: Proof CONCLUSION It *was* always possible to edit / annotate / update EXISTING MS Word / Excel / Power Point attachments in the ANDROID version of Evernote - particularly if you purchased (which I did) the Evernote ENDORSED Office Suite Pro app. Then Evernote made changes which BROKE / REMOVED this function Evernote is been found guilty of (1) Not being forthcoming with it's customers of this reduced functionality (For years I though it was *my phone* that was faulty
  10. Returning to my Conspiracy Theory #1 Statement extract from Tech Support Shane J. (Evernote Help and Learning) Apr 4, 10:14 PDT Hello Client, Here is what the head of our Android team said to me: "We never supported this for MS Office. A long time ago (before MS had apps on Android), we did an integration w/ a non-MS app that would tell our app when a document was modified and we would update it." He has advised me though that he will treat this as a feature request and I have already filed a report with them. Best, Shane
  11. Well @gazumped , you are quite right that I need to backup my statements with facts - and rightly so. I've raised a ticket and I'll share the response with the forum in case anyone else needs it. To be concise then: It was, in the past possible to edit attachments in android. This is not longer possible - there are two possible explanations (1) The is a technical issue with *my* device(s) (2) This function is no longer possible in Evernote for android. I think a frustration for me is that Evernote does not *explicitly* say : This function no longer wo
  12. Your situation, makes sense .. expected when editing .xls and saving .xlsx The situation I described above is editing like-for-like documents. Open .docx file .. edit it, save = "Resource not changed" message. same with excel sheets etc. This is a common problem for many, if not most users, answers are surprisingly scarces. Tickets raised vanish into unknown dimensions ... diversions and distraction s in place of direct answers ... most conspiratol ? There's something afoot I tell you. Skullduggery most foul. On a serious note, it used to work per
  13. *** Edit Update *** This topic has been raised before but no conclusion was reached and it was for much earlier versions of the software. It was always possible in the past, to be able to open an attachment file (say a word document) , edit it, and save it. Evernote Android would kindly ask if you would like to update the file. This is no longer the case. Evernote Android simply replies with "Resources not changed"... which is simply another way of saying "The files are read only permission" This is interesting, because the directory where these files
  14. Hi Gock. I found another use for Marxico, and perhaps you could earn some well deserved revenue for all your hard work. I use the Marxico on my Android device (I made a shortcut to my home screen) because it's the only way to be able to correctly format text on the phone. This is the only way I can cut-paste test from different sources and keep font consistent This is the only way I can create tables This is the only way I can create decent highlights This is the only way I can enter formulas Marxico has given a lot of power to the Mobile Evernote user (ev
  15. eBooks (in my opinion) are in a mess at this point in time. The average eBook reader will have some books in the Kindle Cloud, some in the Google Play Book Store and others on their hard drive (perhaps backed up, perhaps not!) Then to add to the complexity, some would use laptops/phones/kobos/kindles/other to read their books. In a word - FRAGMENTATION - Using Evernote, I've managed to gain control of my eBooks in a centralized, controlled manner. Method: Go to each cloud service, download the ebooks Remove DRM from said books (Google for how-to) Convert
