  1. I appreciate that the search results by default highlight your search text. But I often am searching for a note that I want to send to someone as a screenshot, or post as a screenshot to social media, and I'd like the ability to turn off the highlighted text--it presents a distraction, and looks amateurish: In the old version, I believe that opening the note to edit it would dispel the highlighting--acceptable as a workaround for the lack of a dedicated "turn off highlighting" command. But that's not true of the new version. There doesn't seem to be any way to make the highli
  2. I'm having a variety of problems with this update (I'm running 10.1). Half the time the app won't even launch (it just loads the elephant icon and hangs there). When I'm able to get the app to load, and I attempt a search, results sometimes seem to blink in and out chaotically--"suggested searches" will appear momentarily, then disappear, then be replaced with a blank screen or a spinning "gear" icon, and only then will it supply results. These problems sound potentially identical to the ones VDo has mentioned above--"bugs [appearing] when trying to download offline notebooks. With offlin
  3. Thanks so much! I'm in the process of backing up my (huge?) com.evernote.Evernote folder now. Surprised to see it's 11 GB, but maybe that's normal.
  4. The upgrade in this case did make a difference, thank goodness.
  5. I'm thinking of going back to an older build of Evernote (5.7.1) on my work computer to get around a minor but recurring annoyance. I have the file for the build that I want, but I know that to reinstall I'll need to do a full uninstall of Evernote on this computer. I know it's a bit more tricky than just deleting the icon from Applications (there are database files here and there that need removal, if I recall correctly). I seem to remember finding instructions on how to do a full uninstall in this forum once before, but I've tried a handful of different searches and am not turning up an
  6. I have noticed that the typing lag continues (in a possibly lessened form) even when my Wi-Fi is off, which makes me wonder if the syncing actually is the issue. Anyone else having typing lag issues? I do note that the release notes for 7.7 say "you can now type faster than ever," I wonder if upgrading will help? (I'm hesitant to upgrade as you never quite know whether you're going to get a nasty surprise with whatever fixes you get.)
  7. I'm running Evernote 7.6 on a Mac running Mojave. I've noticed that Evernote functionality has begun to slow down while the app syncs. I'm a pretty speedy typist, and, while I'm typing a note, Evernote will frequently try to sync the note as I'm editing (I'm not sure that there's a formal answer to the question of how often the Mac client will try to sync, but my experience says it's somewhere around every 3-5 seconds when it detects that editing is happening). This used to be no problem, but now it will cause a delay in the entered text being rendered on the screen, which makes it annoyi
  8. Hm, what a hassle. That seems like the corrupted bit is in your underlying database (rather than in the text index), which would explain why the text reindexing doesn't work as a permanent fix. Thus, you might want to rebuild the database from scratch (rather than just reindexing). It's been a few years since I've had to do that, but the last time I had to do that I archived the instructions here. You might want to hunt around to see if those instructions have changed for more recent versions of the app....
  9. Hi TiaKara. How many notes do you have, and how long do you wait before restarting the "Full Text Search index?" I recently found that, with a large database, it can take nearly a week for the database to fully rebuild, and the process shouldn't be restarted before that's all the way done.
  10. I've had a minor (but annoying) issue with Evernote's implementation of font families for a while now. Using the font menu under "Preferences > Formatting" I have set my font to Archer Book (18 point). It's a nice, readable font. However, Evernote sets my fonts in a different font from the same family (typically, Archer Semibold 18). I've had to turn the font off (using FontBook) to prevent this behavior. Similarly, if I have Archer Bold Italic activated on my computer, Evernote will choose to italicize using that font rather than the expected result of Archer Book Italic (which is what I a
  11. I'm not sure I'd say they were "improved," but they were what was expected (in the end, they matched search results done on mobile app or on other computers).
  12. We made it! For the record, my experience with how long the full re-index took matches user Monique Reta's above--about a week.
  13. This process is maybe going to take even longer than I initially expected. I let it run all day Saturday, overnight and into Sunday (it's 6 pm now, so that's an additional 36 hours, for 65 hours total) and we've only reached 29/56. I've let it run almost uninterrupted for three days straight and we're still just over halfway to where we should be, which seems about in line with user Monique Reta's experience above, namely, that the process might take up to a week. Really exasperating. User DTLow says it shouldn't take this long--although I do note that the process hasn't stopped. I can't tell
  14. Started it up around 10 pm tonight and will let it run overnight again.
  15. Up to 23/56 after 21 hours. Closing the computer up for a bit though, got to take it on the road. We'll see if it picks up again afterward.
  16. Fifteen hours in, and the search returns 10/56 notes. Not quite 20% of the way done? At that rate this'll be a 75-hour process.
  17. How many notes do you have, if I may ask? I'm trying to get a sense of how long it takes for databases of different sizes.
  18. (By way of monitoring my progress, I can note that when doing the search on mobile, "surfing" yields 56 results, as contrasted to the 6 results in the pic above. So still a ways to go....)
  19. At 8:38 pm (approx 5 and a half hours after "resetting the clock") I can find *some* of the notes with a search (though not the one pictured above yet). Still, a sign that things are going well...
  20. At 4 pm (after approx five hours, with the computer being open and shut and rebooted once during that time) I clicked "recreate the full text search index" from the Troubleshooting menu, effectively "resetting the clock." I'm going to try to let it run un-molested for longer than five hours. User gazumped, above, suggests it might take around eleven hours for a database around this size to be fully indexed?
  21. That's kinda where I started this thread, struggling with that exact fix and the question of how long it would take. I think one can opt to "recreate" prematurely--not allowing Evernote to "get there" on its own--and "recreating" just "resets the clock" on the (long) indexing process. I've never found anything (including the Activity Log) that gives a sense of how the process is progressing or when it's done, so the best solution is often probably just to wait a bit longer.
