  1. Long time evernote user since the app was first released. Have loved it since then and been a paying user and apologist for EN with friends and family. Haven't been on the forums for a while but v10 finally has worn me down. It's unusable. I never contemplated leaving EN in the past but have now exported all my notes and moved to Joplin. Sure, it's open source and has some flaws but it has a simple, clean interface. No feature bloat. Finally, I'm able to use markdown natively in the app and any editor that I want to. The web clipper to me does a great job and provides simple way to capture and tag content from the web. A couple issues I had with being able to scan into the app and email into the app were resolved with open-source solutions. I can store my data wherever I want to including Dropbox or even Nextcloud on my home NAS. I can finally implement end-to-end encryption. It's been a great run with EN but time to move on. Hard to believe a company would release such a disastrous upgrade and force long-time loyal users off their platform. Steve
  2. Thanks for those tips. I'll give that a try and see how that works for me. Another trick I found was to use the companion program gnsync, I put this in my crontab gnsync --path /home/stephen/texfiles --mask "*.tex" --logpath /home/stephen/gnlogs.log -t That puts a synchronized directory that does a two-way sync with evernote every 5 minutes and keeps everything up to date so I can work on the files in evernote or on my linux desktop with vim.

  3. Yes, I was able to get in contact with support via chat and they approved the request within minutes. Very helpful of them. Thanks.
  4. Ok, I guess that makes sense. I thought the web form was a form of support ticket but never got a response. Maybe using the general support ticket would be better than the forum.
  5. I sent a request to activate a developer api token last week through the web forms and another one this morning. I have not heard back from developer support. I want to get a key to use the GeekNote app for command line access to evernote. From what I can see on thewebsite for the github fork of Geeknote, I need to request a developer token from evernote support. The webpage last week said to expect a response within 24-48 hours. Is there another wait to get in touch to get access to a developer token for geeknote for my account? Thanks!
  6. The original poster has filters set up in Gmail to send to Evernote but wanted a way to send it to the right notebook with tags automatically. There is a Gmail script called "Gmail to Evernote (gm2en)" that performs this task well. If you combine this script with appropriate gmail filters you can automatically take an incoming email and forward it to Email with all the HTML and attachments intact and appropriate notebook and tags attached (along with header information and a link back to the original e-mail in Gmail). Saves a lot of time in processing notes manually.
  7. I couldn't find a way to delete my account either which I agree is bad form. I just went to account settings and changed all my information to meaningless text. Steve
  8. I am just updating this topic to let you know that I no longer recommend Tarpipe as a viable alternative. The application development has stalled and the lead developer recently downgraded an account that I had paid for without explanation. After several days of bouncing e-mails, he finally told me that he was not ignoring my requests but hadn't got around to fixing it yet. It's a week later and still the system is broken. The cost structure of Tarpipe was always a bit ludicrous anyway. To make it useful, you need the 'Max' account which is $15 a month. Anyway, when I disabled tarpipe, I realized how much that I loved having all my routine e-mail forwarded and automatically tagged and placed in the right folder. I was so accustomed to having this that it was hard to go back to doing it manually. I have looked around and I still haven't been able to find any other services that provide the necessary functionality of altering the incoming e-mail's subject line. So, I am still hoping that Evernote sometime implements this functionality. Maybe multiple incoming e-mail addresses to Evernote that you can pre-define with Notebook and Tagging information? Until then, the only way I could find to do this was to set up a linux box with procmail, fetchmail and sendmail that scans my gmail account and forwards the email to Evernote based on matching rules. Actually it is far more flexible and works much better than tarpipe ever did. I have several recipes for procmail that will scan and replace the subject line of incoming email with the Evernote notebook and tagging information if anyone is ever interested in giving this a try.

  9. As I rely on e-mail forwarding quite a bit in my daily activities and is one of my main uses of Evernote, I think a little more explanation than this is warranted about the cause of this and steps being taken to detect/prevent similar occurrences in the future.
  10. Still not working for me. Sent email to account 15 min ago and did not appear in my EN account.
  11. I noticed this morning that several e-mails that I forwarded to my EN account were not showing up. I have sent several since then to try to reproduce the problem and these e-mails never appeared in my account either. Never had a problem before with lost forwarded e-mails.
  12. Sounds like it has some nice features. I'll check it out. I can confirm that the Evernote client on Linux under Wine does run a lot slower than the Windows client running natively. It has some minor quirks. I don't use it as my primary interface for Evernote though so it doesn't bother me to much. It's nice to be able to access it on Linux when I need to; however, the new Web client is looking very nice and I may just end up using that when I need to use Evernote on Linux.
  13. I have been using the latest Evernote build on Ubuntu 10.10 without any problems. What (if any) are the significant advantages of using the Nevernote client as opposed to the Evernote client with Wine?
  14. Hi, I just wanted to share a useful little workflow that I found recently. I have been looking for a way to do this for over a year and finally found a service that was able to provide the needed functionality. I am posting it here in case anyone has been looking for something similar. As everyone does, I get a lot of e-mail everyday from a variety of sources. I have always wanted to be able to take some of the email that I receive on a regular basis and send it automatically to my Evernote account in to the appropriate notebook and along with useful tagging information. Since Evernote made the '@' and '#' labels for the subject line available, it has been possible to do this manually by simply clicking the message and forwarding it after changing the subject line appropriately. What I usually ended up doing was making a Gmail filter and sending the the various types of email automatically in to Evernote in to a generic Inbox notebook. After a day or two, I would go to my Evernote account and manually move the email to the correct notebook and add tagging information. Recently, I found a service called Tarpipe (tarpipe.com) that makes this process a lot easier. Tarpipe sets up a workflow that will process incoming e-mail and change the Subject line in any way that you choose and then forward it on to another e-mail address. So, for example, you have a newsletter that you get each week and you would like to save in Evernote. If you use Gmail, you go to the 'Create Filter' dialog and set up a filter that selects this email from your incoming e-mail. Then, you set up Gmail to forward this e-mail to Tarpipe at a specified incoming e-mail address that you set up for this filter. Tarpipe can then take this e-mail and add additional information to the Subject line such as @Notebook and #tag #tag #tag. When this processing is complete, Tarpipe takes the finished e-mail and forwards it on to your incoming Evernote e-mail address. Here is how the setup looks using Tarpipe's visual editor. I admit that it is a bit of a pain to set this up in this way. Once you get it set up, however, it takes all the effort out of forwarding and processing your routine email. You can set up a workflow for Amazon receipts, UPS shipping confirmations, or just about anything you can make a Gmail filter for. The downside is that it is a subscription service, but if you use email forwarding to Evernote a lot than it may be worth it. I put the workflow in to the 'public' area on tarpipe.com labeled as 'Email to Evernote Tagging/Notebook Interface' so you can clone it if you want to and use it for yourself.
