  1. Evernote for Windows 6.8 Beta 5 Released

    I raised this with the tech support team and they have confirmed the issue as a result. It has been referred to the relevant team for a future release. Let's watch to see how long it takes to resolve
  2. Evernote for Windows 6.8 Beta 5 Released

    That's an intersting thing... Yes, that's what I get too. But worse, as you observe, the relevant resource opens inside the Evernote window and now I can't get back to the original note or to a different note. I click on the shortcut to a different note but the link content still occupies the window. Yes, I have to fully close Evernote and re-open to get everything back. This looks like a proper bug. Have you raised a ticket? @Chantal Leonard @Jason Miller
  3. Actually, I often feel this about IT service businesses. I could recount many examples of a perfectly good product being changed for a largely worse incarnation. Evernote doesn't feel that different. I am often left pondering what question or issue the change answers. It wouldn't surprise me at all to discover that the change in the PDF stuff has been driven by an increase in cost of the licence fees paid to FoxIt for the old viewer or the new Google PDF viewer licence represents a cash saving. Then it is presented to the end users as an improved interface when it is evidently nothing of the sort - just different... A start-up can easily be responsive to its customers. As the business grows the powers-that-be inevitably start to believe that they know what customers want...
  4. A good observation. I have to right click| select view as Attachment | then drag and drop to whichever location I require. As you noted elsewhere... sub-optimal
  5. right click, scroll to Open is the least bad solution for directly opening in your default PDF program. right click, scroll to view as Attachment is still the option to switch to Attachment view within a note.
  6. My default program for PDFs is and remains Adobe Acrobat. So this offered solution isn't a fix for me. I have the same experience as @TdeV and @CalS I'm resigned to the right click, scroll to Open approach.

    Thanks @jefito. It is certainly the issue that I've observed but your suggested solution doesn't work for me.
  8. Evernote for Windows 6.8 Beta 5 Released

    I generally use the pre-release versions of Evernote. Normally I have little feedback but the latest version has an issue which, for me at least, is a backward step. The PDF viewing option is making greater use of the Foxit viewer that is built in. I see that the intention is to update the inline PDF preview experience with easier access to key commands including print and download plus the display of the file name. I didn't need that but can see that others might. However, what existed before a single place to click and open the PDF in an external PDF viewer - in my case I choose Adobe Acrobat. That appears to have disappeared and now I have to right click and scroll down to Open. So a two click option compared to before. I know this is hardly a major issue but it is, from my perspective, a deterioration in the UI. 6.8.5.6298 (306298) Prerelease (CE Build ce-1.36.3494) Windows 10
  9. Strange Search Result - Any ideas?

    Thanks all for the insights. I have a better handle on searching and finding now. Even so, I find it strange that using SEARCH locates the notes strictly according to the search algorithm, then performs a FIND inside each of the notes that are located through the SEARCH, but doesn't return the results of that FIND in the search. But that's the way it is. Personally I'd find search more useful if it found all occurrences of the searched for string or if there were the option to use wildcards in the search. Andrew
  10. Strange Search Result - Any ideas?

    Yes, I think I had come to understand that. When I delve into the search results of course the word 'password' appears in the text so, of course 'passw' is at the beginning of the text. However, as the screen capture shows, search for 'passw' causes it to be highlighted through the text in the middle as well as at the beginning of strings of text. Andrew
  11. In one of my Evernote notebooks I keep several notes which detail Linux server commands/syntax for task I do infrequently and can never remember the exact syntax. One of these is for the htpasswd command. I have a document which refers, in several places. to .htpasswd and htpasswd. An example of one piece of text in the note is: By chance I needed to refer to the note to be reminded of the syntax as in the Windows desktop I did the following: Checked that all notes was selected typed passwd in the search box no note was found I then repeated and typed passw and the note was located. Similarly typing htpasswd or .htpasswd worked but not passwd I'm truly puzzled. Does anyone have insight? Andrew

  14. fitness 30 Day Fitness Challenge - Questions

    I'll go with the stairs and no sugar - although I'm not sure how rigorous the sugar-free stuff can be since it's hidden in lots of things. So find the scales and get the starting point to compare each week along the way... Andrew
  15. I have been using Evernote web clipper with Firefox and various Firefox plugins very happily for sometime. Recently I found that the URL shortener plugin that I use (CutyFox v1.4.1) had stopped working. By disabling all plugins and then reenabling one-by-one I found that this was caused by the Evernote web clipper. It all followed an upgrade to Firefox 9.x and the Evernote web clipper 5.0.0.214840. If I disable the web clipper then the URL shortener works just fine. So, presently, I have the Evernote web clipper disabled since I use that less frequently than the URL shortener and can use the desktop clipping capability if needed. Hope this can be looked at when a new release of the web clipper is released. Thanks. Andrew
