  1. EF does "Index" your files: http://c-command.com/eaglefiler/help/search-everything It works quite well. I am not sure what the other artificial intelligence advantages are that you mention, but EF works great for my needs, without the continued headaches seen with EN. I guess I am lucky in that I don't need to access my files remotely all the time, and have the other needs you have. I like my simple life! It is quite nice! EF looks interesting and certainly shares some similarities with DT (Just as Evernote does). However, as far as I can tell there is none of the Artificial Intelligence in EF that DT has, which has become critical to my workflow. While EF is a bit less expensive and includes PDFPen OCR, PDFPen has routinely performed with less accuracy than ABBYY OCR that is included with DEVONThink Pro Office, which I use. EF looks like a great alternative for some people who aren't in need of some of the more complexity-inducing features in DEVONThink. Unfortunately I need those complexity-inducing features. Ah, and upon closer inspection, it looks as though EF doesn't support "Indexing" (the term DEVONThink uses for referencing files in place in the original file system). My DEVONThink Pro Office content are a mix of imported and indexed items. Not having the option to "index" files in place is a deal breaker for me.
  2. JM, I think you should also take a look at EagleFiler, by C-Command Software: https://c-command.com (Mac based only) EagleFiler can do all that DT and EN can do, without the cloud, with the Encryption, can upload to any cloud of your choice for mobile use, etc. EF has been a life saver for me in going completely paperless. I can tell you are excited about DT, which is a nice product. However, I have found EF to be quite a bit simpler, easy to use, with great tools. The EF web clipper is fantastic as well. Good Luck!
  3. I personally have found the most stable version of Evernote is Version 5.6.0, (Although I don't use it anymore. I just keep an eye on the forum for any improvements. Sad to say I don't find any) I tested again, the Excel copy/paste into a Note. It worked fine. However, the table borders did not appear despite being set to appear in Excel. I even went away from the Note and returned to it and the table was still present.
  4. It has been many years since I have worked on a Windows machine. So, I am not able to advise. However, in the little reading I did on the web, it seems you may have some minor issues with your 'system files'. I don't think Evernote has anything to do with this error. However, back to my disclaimer in the first part of this paragraph! I would follow any suggestions gazumped has to offer. He suggested above to do a System Restore. I don't see where that would hurt, as it restores your system back to the latest good version of your system (if it has not been corrupted for a long time).
  5. I recommend you submitting a Support Ticket. Follow these instructions: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/51807-best-practices-submitting-a-support-ticket/ If you want to try and tackle this on your own, I have been successful in doing the following, using Evernote version 5.6.0. For other versions, the results may vary: The EN Database MAY be found here: 1. Open a Finder Window 2. Click on "Go" in the menu at the top of the screen, this will create a dropdown menu 3. Press and hold the "Options" key on your keyboard. 4. This will display the word "Library" in the middle of the dropdown menu from the "Go" menu. 5. Click on "Library" 6. Find the "Applications Support" Folder and click on it 7. Find the "com.evernote.Evernote Folder. This folder contains all of your Evernote Database 8. Copy that folder some place safe. You will drag this database back to the same location after you reinstall Evernote. This link explains other locations where the database may be depending on where you downloaded Evernote from, the App Store or directly from Evernote.com: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/35283-where-are-the-files-saved-to-on-my-mac/ Use the combination of clicking on "Go" and the "Options Key" to display the hidden "Library" folder. Although the rest is easy, this link explains the rest in very good detail: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/77444-how-to-completely-remove-and-reinstall-en-mac/ A Disclaimer: I have never used any version of Evernote beyond 5.6.0. The location of the database for versions beyond 5.6 may be somewhere else. Good luck!
  6. Yea, I should have been more clear. I was not suggesting using the Third Party tool to fix the issue. Rather, suggesting there may be a problem with the system files. I agree a restart as well, but they may find they need to do some system repairs.

  8. Elenie, I am sorry no one else has helped you by now. I only come to this forum occasionally. If I were you, I would do the following: (However, keep in mind I am not a computer geek and don't know the BEST solution. This is simply what I would try on my own) 1. Export ALL Notes to separate Folder on your computer and/or external hard drive (particularly the local Notebook you are concerned about losing) Export the Notes in the .ENEX Format. Realize when you Export, your Notes will not be exported into different Folders labeled as your Notebooks are labeled. The Notes will all be dumped into one Folder without any order or structure. When I do an Export, I Export each Notebook separately labeling the Folder it generates as the name of the Notebook I am exporting. 2. Sync! Back Up your data to the EN server. 3. Re-install the Evernote application. Or Uninstall Evernote application using AppCleaner, then reinstall Evernote application. 4. Restore your data to the Desktop application. It will be easiest to Sync the Desktop with the EN server to do this, then Import your Local .ENEX Files you Exported in Step 1. I hope this helps.
  9. I have not tried any of the current versions. However, try clicking in the 'body' of a Note. The Note Menu should appear. The "microphone" icon should appear in that menu. Click on that microphone icon and you should be good to go. If the microphone icon does not appear, I do not know what to tell you. I stopped using Evernote a few months ago. I just come back here occasionally to see if the app has improved enough to return using it.
  10. I am using EN 5.6.0 Direct. Yosemite 10.10 The best I can do is; Right Click in the body of the Note Choose Convert to PDF It creates a New Note with a PDF of the original Note. Then Drag-n-Drop the PDF from the Note wherever you want to, such as your Desktop. I hope this helps.
  11. In hindsight, I feel it necessary to apologize. My lack of knowledge on the data appearing in my account frustrated me and I allowed that frustration to ferment. I was frustrated with several issues that hit in a small time frame, however, that is no justification for my rants. I made several posts in this forum I consider less than professional. My posts were never meant to be malicious! If you wish to delete them, I agree. If you wish to leave them up as an example of what “not to do”, I agree. I want to extend my apology to Evernote, Terry O., Dave Engberg, the Evangelists and all other Forum users. I apologize for any undue harm or discontent I may have caused any of you. I should have handled the situation more discreetly and with greater respect for all involved. I (me and my small group of users) am only one insignificant user out of over 100 Million, and keeping that in perspective, I now feel fortunate I receive(d) any reply from Evernote when submitting tickets. So, for that I am grateful! I hope you accept this apology as it comes from the bottom of my heart. I hope you take it as it is meant, as well as an attempt to foster a kindred spirit. I wish Evernote, it’s employees and it’s users the best of luck and most success in the future. I also hope the upcoming 2014 Evernote Conference is a rocking conference for all! Sincerely, Sentinel
  12. Dave, I do appreciate the visit in the Forum and would have apprecited a bit more information in our discussions in the Support emails back and forth. Thank you for the detailed response! Well worded and about what I anticipated. I am glad Evernote has a handle on this issue. It makes me feel more comfortable knowing you are on it. Thank you!
