  1. I began a test transition to Nimbus Note last year during the darker early days of v10, and loved the elegant note formatting capabilities and partitioned spaces for work, personal, etc. I found the search inadequate and the Android app not so good, however. I ended up returning to Evernote – mostly due to Nimbus' deficient search capabilities, but primarily due to the concerns raised by other posters about the location of the data potentially being in Russia. Their team seemed just a little too insistent that they were ‘proudly based in the US’. Without being able to confirm either way, I elected to stick with EN despite its ongoing teething problems.
  2. I only have a discrepancy between Web (22561) and the Windows legacy version (22567) of only six notes, but I tracked one down to see. It was a note that had been shared with me via Workchat that is unavailable, but still shows up in the legacy version. I do recall in the past that shared notes were counted (or not counted) differently between platforms. Weirdly, the same account on three different Android devices returns 22514, 22543 and 22555 notes!
  3. @tjsuominen, your other option is to retain v6.25 and trial v10 via the web app, which has mostly the same functionality. I'm doing this right now on one of my laptops, primarily because the v6.25 retains the ability to set and edit note locations manually and batch operations like moving and retagging can be undertaken on large numbers of notes and are still much faster than in v10.
  4. I've noticed similar behaviour as @Kelly M. – notebooks take about 10 seconds to unlock before the move operation can be completed. Once they have been unlocked they remain that way for the session, but it is annoying to wait that first time.
  5. To add to this good advice from @DTLow, make sure you put double quotes around your notebook name, since it contains spaces (I think you also have a leading '.' too?). notebook:".Statements To Reconcile/Bills to Pay" intitle:Grande David.
  6. I've been waiting *so* long for a solution to this one. Thank you, @jrgreensboro!
  7. The option to download the notes in Android is under Settings/Synchronisation/Synchronisation type. Glad to hear it's working well with 11K notes. I've imported a few hundred, but am a bit tentative about committing further (I have 25K notes) until I understand the benefits and limitations for my particular work flow.
  8. Same response back to me as for @TK0047 and @CalS. Quite encouraging, and I'll run it in parallel for a while to assess long-term feasibility.
  9. I recently received an email (presumably automated) from the CEO/founder asking how I was finding Nimbus after downloaded it. I quoted the same clause in my response and I'll post here if I receive any clarification.
  10. I've downloaded Nimbus and am giving the web, Windows and Android versions a try at the moment. Nimbus does some things differently to EN (in a good way), but a few things are a bit shaky. There is a Chrome clipper, although it isn't quite as polished as the EN clipper. If you import some EN notes from an enex file Nimbus give you a month of premium to try.
  11. I have been an Evernote user for nearly 10 years now, and I have never posted except to assist other users with problems. I do feel as though I need to add my voice to the general dissent, perhaps only as a power user, with version 10. I tolerated the reduced functionality of the web app and can make do with the current Android app, because I knew I could always go back to the Windows app where I could rapidly initiate searches with [CTRL]-Q, adjust note creation and updated dates, enter and edit note locations (which I do use), construct advanced searches and bulk process notes the way I have been doing for many years now. Upon installing version 10, I was appalled to find much of this functionality taken away. Which company has ever released an updated piece of software without a preferences menu and which seems—at a first glance at least—to be laggier than the previous one? Surely there is a better way to layer a UI to accommodate novice, casual and power users? Like others I will be clinging desperately and disappointedly to v6.xx until it no longer functions or v10 comes up to a similar level of competency.
  12. Is there a list of the Web Clipper keyboard shortcuts somewhere other than within the extension itself? Hard to clip them from inside the clipper!
  13. The sync might take a while, and probably best when connected to WiFi. Any luck yet?
  14. My laptop screen is 4K (it's a Dell XPS 15 9560) and the other (which is the primary monitor when connected) is a 24" 1920x1200 Dell desktop monitor. I've fiddled around endlessly with no success and have given up trying to sort this out! I just live with it when using the laptop away from the dock. The other gripe for me is that when I power up in the multi-monitor configuration, the EN window is HUGE, stretching several screen widths off to the right and I have to go through multiple resizings to get it back to one screen. I feel as though this is an issue overall with the way Windows 10 copes with multiple monitors with differing resolutions, and perhaps also EN's way of trying to work around the information it's being fed by the OS. Good luck finding a solution and let me know if you do! David.
  15. I have exactly this problem, with a multi-monitor setup also. My laptop screen easily has enough width to display the left panel, but even registry editing of the left panel visibility and width won't let it display. It does return when I attach the other monitor, ironically on the same laptop screen (now acting as a secondary monitor) where it refuses to show when on its own!
  16. In Google Chrome, you can achieve this by setting up a new profile, then logging in with your alternative credentials.
  17. You can find notes with images in them of any type using the search: resource:image/* For a particular format (e.g. jpg, png) use: resource:image/jpeg resource:image/png
  18. And if you want to search for phrases in note titles, put double quotes around the phrase. E.g. intitle:"pizza cheese"
  19. I'm in the same boat as you, @Dave-in-Decatur, but I feel as though the latest general release (6.14.5) is pretty good, all things considered. There are still a few quirks, but I have found myself using it more and more after becoming quite disgruntled a few months back. Funny how much of a good influence it is to be able to use a piece of software without having to consciously steel oneself for problems! Hopefully the ‘downward spiral’ is simply part of the usual process of change most organisations go through regularly.
  20. Fair point, @DTLow. I love shortcuts, but they don't give any hint as to where the note originated.
  21. What about adding it to the shortcut list? That way it is available either in the left pane or on the toolbar in desktop versions, as well as in a dedicated menu on the mobile apps.
  22. I think a note needs to exist on the server for a link to be created (probably to assign it a reliable unique ID) which is why a sync automatically initiates when you request a note link for a newly created note. As far as I remember, this behaviour has been around for a long while.
  23. I suspect they are referring to the behind the scenes software that drives the server syncing rather than the Evernote clients. It has been a worrying couple of days though – I've been suffering from 'Evernote anxiety'!
