  1. Hi. Do you have the left panel visible? (See the View menu) - If so, your 'stack' names should have a small triangle to the left when you hover the cursor over them. Click the triangle to hide/ unhide notebooks. Also Ctrl+<Left Arrow> and <Right Arrow> will do the same.
  2. Hi. I'm not a Mac user, but I believe you can reindex the database by using OptionKey Help>Troubleshooting; and force a resync of your data using the **Shift** and **Option** keys on your keyboard and click the sync wheel (next to your username). Be aware that both operations could tie up your system for some time, depending on the number of notes you have. I'd actually suggest giving the thumbnails a few days to sort themselves out - tag the affected note(s) and come back to them in a week maybe - before intervening too much. I believe there's a thumbnail index somewhere that might take a while to update when notes change... You could also reach out to Support as you're a subscriber.
  3. Hi - have you tried a browser or a system restart? A different browser to see whether this is broader than just a Chrome issue? If the answer to both is 'yes' and you still have the issue I'd suggest reaching out to Support as you're a subscriber.
  4. Not a good week - crashed again, this time while I was setting up a new Stack. Completed the FE window, restarted and my stack was still there (phew) but as New Stack 2, not the name I had been in the process of assigning. No excess load on the system, and I wasn't moving things around too much - just putting an existing notebook into a new stack... 🙁
  5. Hi. I'm not a Surface user, but could you merge two notes, or save the drawing as an image (JPG etc) if you don't need to edit it further?
  6. ...Possibly weirdly, in the real world I do shred a lot of what I scan - after a decent wait so I'm sure it doesn't need re-scanning - especially the bits with my address and most of the receipts with obfuscated account and card numbers. My theory is that anyone with a grudge against me personally is going to start as close to my base as possible: but any stalker dumpster diving is only going to turn up hamster bedding, not evidence of anything... and anyway those floor plans of the Bank of England could belong to anyone...
  7. Woo. That's a good question with a pretty long answer. The short(ish) version, like a certain pink pachyderm around here, is that I use passworded PDFs just like you. My casual security is down to the fact that of 48,000 and some notes in my database only a relative few(hundred) are in need of protection, and my library is part of the billion or so notes in various languages on Evernote's proverbial books. Even an AI process is going to take a while to work out where my stuff is, and which notes hold the plans for World Domination. Plus anything I hold really dear (like The Plans) is on paper and in a drawer near my desk. Anything with bank details is in an unsynced local notebook regularly backed up to a local hard drive, and my passwords to everything are with Bitwarden - which puts out some useful random sequences for passwords, like @Dq3J&N@&R (not otherwise in use!).
  8. Hi. Have you raised this with Rocketbook? They may have some insight into work-arounds. Sounds like Google is reluctant to use whatever mechanism Rocketbook provide to exchange keys with Evernote. Not sure it's anything that Evernote could fix, but you could try a support ticket too...
  9. Hi. Not sure that this is an 'issue' still - have you tried syncing your app and uninstall / restart / reinstalling? Do you have the option to take a standard picture with the device camera and add the picture to a note from the camera roll?
  10. Hi. You've raised this as a shared notes question: are you sharing the note with someone else, or are they sharing with you? There's an option under 'share' to allow view only, or viewing and editing of a note - but its rather basic security that if you're connecting via a URL you'd need to log in to change the content. Google Docs is presumably going off the fact that you're already logged into your Internet connection, but Evernote doesn't have that access...
  11. Hi. Does notebook:<notebook> <searchterm> not do it for you? (NB there's a space in the middle here... <notebook> <searchterm>)
  12. You've really not been having a good day have you? 😉 The big black screen thing seems to be the PDF showing as 'inline'. You can either open the file with the password, then use 'show as attachment' and close it again, or drag and drop initially with the shift key to get the 'attached' icon into the note. I don't get any visible content when opening the note - just the black screen and a password box. Tried that both times. Maybe restart your system and see if that happens again? (It's now silly o'clock at Gaz Towers UK so I'm off to bed. Good luck with the glitch - I'll look forward to tomorrow's instalment...😊)
  13. Evernote are busily reinventing the wheel it seems - looks like major changes in a few months, but what those changes will be (except 'for the better') is unclear... https://evernote.com/blog/2020-update-progress-road-ahead/
  14. Hi. Have you tried File > Exit of Evernote and re-opening the app?
  15. Might be something to do with window sizes. I found your page and tried a few options. I can clip the simplified text into a better layout - but it means using Evernote to simplify the text and Nimbus - or another screenshot app - to grab the visual. Using just Clipper I got these - Standard full window view: Individual note view: ...and if I reduce the window size: And this might help to explain delays and discrepancies... https://evernote.com/blog/2020-update-progress-road-ahead/
  16. Nobody is discounting requests; none of the 'gurus' have, nor will they ever. We're all just users, entitled to voice our own views and opinions. The fact that @DTLow and I are happy with the status quo doesn't mean we couldn't or wouldn't use more features if they were available. We're mainly pointing out that your perfectly valid request is not currently part of Evernote's feature set, and while there is every chance that new tricks will be rolled out in the next few months, there are currently other ways to design and control display and output.
  17. Hi. Difference of opinions. I like Evernote too (48,234 notes and counting...) and I produce, on occasion, professional reports and print artwork. In all cases I use Evernote to soak up the emails, web clips and general background research; and then draft some things in Evernote, but transit to MSOffice - Word, Excel or Publisher for 'polished' layout. The source files and the document files get attached to the same note. The scratchpad (and occasionally erratic) level of formatting doesn't generally worry me too much, because -believe it or not- it's better now than 9/10 years ago and I subscribed to Evernote with my eyes open, knowing what the app's capabilities were. As to Evernote responding, IME they have only very VERY rarely justified a decision they've taken, and only once in 10 years have they reversed one. If you'd like a personal response, raise a support ticket - though I'd bet you'll get a "developers are aware of the requests and are working toward improving the editor, but I have no release date for any new features" response. Software companies don't usually comment on what's in development or when updates will be released. A lot appears to be happening in the background - improved features seem like they're imminent; 'till then, there are workarounds...
  18. Just had my monthly crash - this time when I powered my system on. I have a batch file that opens a bunch of standard apps - Outlook, Evernote, Vivaldi, VPN and as soon as that ran Evernote's Fatal Error window popped up. AFAIK I closed it down normally last night, so when things crashed I have no idea. To add some small insult to injury I opened a note in a separate window after the app started up, then deleted the note from the main window, without closing the separate note window. Now I can't close that window... presume I'll have to restart Evernote to clear my desktop... I don't like Mondays. Beginning to dislike Tuesdays too... 😠
  19. If you're talking Evernote versions I'd agree with you on this - they're piloting something on the web that seems likely to get cascaded out to everything else, but going by the videos released so far it's a major project with the problem that you can't deliver bits and pieces; when we get a new Evernote version it will be a shiny new set of (we hope complete) features all in one package. As to 7 votes meaning nothing - some other requests (that are also on hold) have 400 or more so this one is not something that most people feel super-strongly about - and Evernote get lots of feedback from surveys and social media which -along with this forum- informs their priorities.
  20. Hi. Moving notes from 'local' - ie stored only on your hard drive - to 'synced' should work seamlessly. It does mean all those notes need to be uploaded to the server, so I guess it could take a while to catch up. Does the local notebook still exist, or were all its contents transferred?
  21. Hi. See this thread which may be relevant... https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/122668-editing-a-note-on-en-android-results-in-all-images-changing-size-position-in-en-windows/ EDIT: and check in Settings to see if changing the web client version helps...
