  1. FWIW, I have a RTX 4070 Ti, and Intel® UHD Graphics 770 (i5-13600K).
  2. I thought "--disable-gpu" could degrade performance, but oddly enough, in my case, it didn't. Good luck with Notion! I think it looks better, have better integration with many sites, and overall could be a great substitute, but for me it was incredibly slow, specially loading large notes, and lacked most of the offline functionality I wanted (basically, it seemed to always load each note from the website, so moving between notes was a pain). I tested it more than a year ago, so it might have improved since then.
  3. Hi, everyone! I posted on another thread a workaround that solved my issue - instead of using ~10% of CPU when idle, now Evernote consumes about 0.1%. Just add the parameter "--disable-gpu" to the command that starts Evernote. Check the post / thread for more details.
  4. Workaround for High CPU Use of Evernote on Windows. I came here to share with you a workaround that brought my total CPU usage down from ~10% to about 1-2%, and reduced Evernote's "idle" CPU usage by almost 2 orders of magnitude (from 8-10% to 0.1%). I hope this helps the OP and others, but of course, it might not help those experiencing high CPU usage by Evernote caused by other reasons/issues. If you start Evernote from a shortcut, right-click it, select Properties, and in the Target field add --disable-gpu to the end of the line. E.g., change: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Programs\Evernote\Evernote.exe to %LOCALAPPDATA%\Programs\Evernote\Evernote.exe --disable-gpu Even with that argument, it will still start a process as "Evernote.exe --type=gpu-process" (visible in Task Manager "Details"), but on my PC it is now using 0% of CPU. @Jongbloed, let me know if it solved your issue as well.
  5. I've been using Evernote for many years and have encountered many issues, including this dreaded 10% CPU usage even when idle. Actually, 10% of CPU usage for an idle program is too much. Like most Windows 11 systems, mine has hundreds of processes loaded (280 as of this writing, to be precise), and it would become unusable if each and every process used that much CPU to produce no valid work at all. When Evernote is open and idle (even when minimized), my total CPU usage is around 10%. When I quit Evernote completely, the total CPU usage goes down to 1%. That much usage for an idle app is terrible: it drains the battery unnecessarily from notebooks (reducing battery life), increases your energy bill unnecessarily, and considering millions of PCs running such an app, emits a considerable amount of GHG that could (and should) be avoided. Yeah, unfortunately, Electron and other CEF (Chromium Embedded Framework) apps are usually not very well optimized in many ways. However, when I check other Electron/CEF apps (e.g., Steam client, Google Chrome itself, and many more), none of them uses even 1% of the CPU on my PC when "idle"...
  6. A quick test (but not a solution!) is to try to login in incognito mode - if it works, clearing cookies (and/or other browser data) is definitely recommended. Unfortunately, that didn't help in my case...
  7. I have the same issue on a Chromebook running Google Chrome Version 103.0.5060.132 (Official Build) (64-bit). When I open the Evernote web interface it shows the error "Sorry, we’re having some trouble loading Evernote Web.Try reloading the page.", which seems to be a generic error message when the app can't load properly. According to Operating system requirements for Evernote: At least in my case, it seems Evernote doesn't properly catch errors that might or not be about an outdated browser version, and/or an error on the server side. In the Javascript console there are many errors from en-conduit-web-worker.44a68e19be3331974451.js: According to https://sqlite.org/wasm/doc/trunk/persistence.md#coop-coep: Anyway, I contacted support to ask them to at least inform the user to update their browser if they are not supported instead of asking the user to try again (in vain).
  8. I contacted support. Ideally, this issue should be raised and reach a developer to have a good chance of being solved, but in my experience this rarely happens... But at least I can have some comfort in knowing that I can always talk to the duck! 🦆
  9. I managed to find the Javascript function logging "Unable to restore user ${n.userID}. Reset current user to no one.", via Developer Tools. I'm not sure I can (or should) paste it all here, though, but here is the most relevant snippet: try { const t = (0, o.isNotNullish)(n.userID) && n.userID.length > 0 ? (0, o.userIDForKeyString)(n.userID) : null; await this.setCurrentUser(e, t, !1) } catch (t) { await this.setCurrentUser(e, null, !1), o.logger.warn(`Unable to restore user ${n.userID}. Reset current user to no one. `, t) } There are many possible places where different exceptions can happen inside that try / catch. I'd love to run that code step-by-step to figure out what is really happening, but it would require at least one more restart cycle, maybe several... I'd appreciate if someone could give me any hint about how I could proceed from here. Thanks!
  10. I quit Evernote (File > Quit Evernote), restarted the system... and Evernote asked me to login again. From what I understand, this is not expected behavior, correct? I did some logging with cd %LOCALAPPDATA%\Programs\Evernote Evernote.exe --enable-logging Some warnings called my attention: To be clear, I'm seeing other CEF (Chromium Embedded Framework) / Electron programs asking for log in after a restart (e.g., the Steam client), so I believe this issue might be something related to my device and how CEF / Electron works - but I don't know how to figure out the cause and a solution...
  11. Thanks for the reply! I'm not signing out of Evernote - at least, not manually / on purpose. It might be happening by some other reason, though, but I couldn't find one. I'll make some tests in a moment.
  12. One thing that might help a bit is to run Evernote with logging enabled - I'm not referring to "log in" or "logging in" (as "sign in"), but the kind of log where the program shows some of the steps it is taking so a programmer can find out what is going on. First, be sure to close the Evernote client. Then open a Command Prompt, enter the Evernote directory and run it with the parameter --enable-logging: cd %LOCALAPPDATA%\Programs\Evernote Evernote.exe --enable-logging The output might or might not show relevant error messages, but it might be worth a try if you haven't solved your issue yet.
  13. Hi! I've been facing a peculiar issue with the Evernote for Windows, and I was hoping some of you could give me a hand. 👋🏼 Every time I restart Windows, when I launch Evernote it prompts me to log in again. I would expect the client to retain my login information for at least a few days after a restart. I couldn't find anything related to this in the program settings, and I'm wondering if it's normal or if there is some issue with my setup. FWIW, if I completely close Evernote (System tray > right click > Quit Evernote) and start it again without restarting Windows, the program opens without asking me to login. If this behavior is not normal, has anyone else experienced this issue or knows of a solution? Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
  14. There are a few ways to work around it, from patching the Electron app files on the disk to modifying them after starting EN. I don't have a lot of free time ATM to test those options, but when I do I'll let you know.
  15. Another issue that bothers me: if I change an attachments like a PDF file from showing up as "Single page" to "Title", EN10 changes the "Date updated" of the note. This is not a content change, but a visualization change, and should not count as an "update". By doing this, EN10 disrupts sorting notes by "Date updated" to find out recently edited notes...
