  1. Hi. I believe it's the convention that the text colour picker shows the shade that is currently in use, whether or not that is the default. Even if you have not entered any text, that shows you what colour it will be. If you prefer to start with a different colour you may be able to change the default, or create a template to make that easier.
  2. Hmmn. I'm not a Mac user, although a few guys who are will be around here somewhere - give it a while and I'm sure you'll get some more informed comment!!
  3. Hi. Were you changing your address here? https://www.evernote.com/secure/SecuritySettings.action?view=
  4. Hi. Evernote can only encrypt pure text in a note. You would be able to open a PDF in Adobe or another PDF editor on your desktop to encrypt it, then re-upload it to your note. The original will still exist in your note history but the current version will require a password. If you scan to a folder on your hard drive, files can be OCR'd (made searchable) and encrypted there before being attached to a note. (Other apps can also encrypt their output files, and if you compress a file to a ZIP archive the compression software can usually encrypt the archive.)
  5. If that was the help pages online, they don't mention that only subscribers get email support. Try @EvernoteHelps on Twitter. If you're using the web client, exactly how did Evernote 'crash'? What is your browser and OS?
  6. Try this too - https://infranodus.com/
  7. Bearing in mind that if both devices are running, and Evernote is syncing regularly on both, I wonder if you managed to confuse the database by deleting on one machine but the other (before or after the deletion was synced) then popped up and re-added the note as a 'new' note. My head hurts just trying to work out whether that is even feasible, but my spider-sense says that two active devices as always bad news...
  8. I didn't need to, thanks - and I wasn't arguing with you, just envying your optimism...
  9. Hi - this menu was meant to be used under instruction from Evernote's Support team, which we very definitely are not. We're (or at least I'm) not even sure what some of those options actually do - so playing around is not a good idea. Some of the general 'fix' scans also take a long time, so don't attempt any repairs unless you can leave the device for an hour or two. I'd say you need a backup of your Evernote database folder before you start to use any of the options. Just in case...
  10. LOL - do you have any appreciation of the history of Windows 1992-2020? Evernote doesn't even register on the Microsoft scale of customer disregard...
  11. ...what @PinkElephant said; plus - worst case, try exporting half your notes. If that works, do half the rest - repeat as necessary. Whichever export fails contains your note error(s)... Try more halves (if necessary) to narrow that down.
  12. Ah. @Don Dz - sorry: should have read this thread before responding to the other post. OK I get why creating notes in shared notebooks may be a problem. Not sure why - even with editing privs you'd be unable to delete... Had the changes synced fully when you were trying?
  13. HI. Working in the 'All Notes' view, it's not my experience that editing an existing note jumps to that notebook, or that creating a new note assigns it to anything other than my default notebook. What's your OS and can you list out your process in detail? Mine, for instance, is: Notes open in 'All Notes' view click into single note in a specific notebook and edit content click 'New Note' create new note in Default Notebook... If I select another notebook I see only notes in that notebook (obvs!) and new notes are created there. I'd suspect if the option existed to assign new notes to a specific notebook, I'd always have left it set to the 'wrong' notebook no matter where I create the note...
  14. Hi. As you may have seen from this lengthy thread, it's not an option in Evernote, although there are any number of work-arounds. That doesn't seem likely to change. In moving from one app to another there are always differences in how things work - up to you to decide whether the advantages outweigh the differences...
  15. There's no way to add a screen shot just using Evernote's toolbar, but I find the easiest way is to use the keyboard shortcut (which you can alter as necessary) - see Evernote for Windows > Tools > Options > Shortcut Keys and "capture screen". Windows tends to hijack some options so I changed mine to a non-standard Ctrl+Alt+S Holding Shift will paste the picture to your desktop, Ctrl will add it to your clipboard.
  16. Hi. How and where do you get you screenshots? It's easy to attach external images to an Evernote note, and if Evernote is running, a keyboard shortcut will take a screenshot or an area of the screen and add it directly to a note...
  17. Them's the banana - not sure myself. Question I should maybe have asked earlier.. is it really important to find orphaned (?) tags? Unless there are a LOT of unused tags they shouldn't be a major problem...
  18. Hi. This formatting bar? Try clicking in the note body - it only appears when you're editing the note.
  19. Hi. Please check the other threads. A former Evernote Windows project coder has advised (multiple times) that dark mode is not possible in the current code base. Work-arounds are detailed elsewhere...
  20. Hi. In the Windows desktop and Android applications you should be able to see the numbers of notes connected by each tag on the 'tags' page. It's possible to view the '0' note tags and delete them there. It's also possible to get an advanced Help menu on the desktop versions which (if I recall correctly) offers an option to delete unassigned tags. (I'm working in the web version at the moment so can't check.) What OS and version are you using?
  21. It's been gone 4+ years. I think at some point you have to let go...
  22. Hi. This is a (mainly) user supported forum, so I have no idea where that address terminates. Does your email client allow you to recall / delete sent emails? If not and as you're a subscriber, you could reach out to Evernote Support to see if they can do anything?
  23. Hi. This loads fine for me - Difficult to know how different browsers on different devices via different network connections will deal with it - you might need to collect some more details from the students, including which option they chose - 'Join' would mean their system starts to try and load Evernote, which might cause some problems...
  24. Hi. In general you can add extra rows and resize columns, but that's about it...
