  1. Oh, yes, I can see how that would be bad. Most of my research is historical. Or should I say hysterical?
  2. Thanks! Workona will definitely be useful. The reason I clip so many web pages is because many change or go missing. I also like the idea of having my own archive of information at my disposal in case my internet goes down for an extended period of time (I live in rural GA and that has happened a couple times). I know there's the Waybackmachine, which is helpful, but having Evernote is like my own little intranet where I can search only things I've deemed notable and will probably want to reference again. I tried just saving web pages to my hard drive but that became really cumbersome.
  3. Yeah, I'm considering abandoning it myself, as soon as I find another program that clips web pages and let's you highlight them. (I found Nimbus Note...)
  4. Can Standard Note capture/save web pages with highlighting? I found this app called Nimbus Note, Capture and Clipper. I might try it out.
  5. I have no option but to work this way since I'm constantly researching, writing, editing, and jumping from task to task to task. I have to force myself to close all my browser windows sometimes and say, "Enough!" This really shouldn't be that much of a problem these days. Memory management has been a thing for a long time now. It seems software companies are more and more expecting you to pick up their slack.
  6. I think I figured out that if I quit the program then right click the icon in the systray and quit there too, it will close all those processes.
  7. Wow, I'm sad to say that I'm not surprised this is considered "normal" for any software. 500MB is a lot of memory to be hogging for a text app that isn't even being used. I have no idea what it could be doing in the background like that, even if I am using the Chrome Extension. Maybe I need to be more diligent in shutting down web pages, but when I do research I often leave many tabs open for a while, even after clipping them. Maybe this is what is causing the issue. Still I don't see why the processes can't shut down after I've clicked "clip." Now my RAM usage is doubled because Chrome is using RAM to keep them open too. It's a good thing I have 64GB. Whenever I decide to switch gears and do audio or video I'll just have to go through a process of closing all my browser windows and processes in order to make sure nothing happens while I'm recording, editing or rendering. That's just the nature of wanting to do everything on one computer.
  8. Is there any reason anyone can think of why I would have 7 instances of Evernote in my task manager using about 500MB of RAM when I don't even have Evernote open?
  9. Exactly as wsequeira said. I use my computer for music and video production. This is a REALLY annoying feature. I would very much like options to either turn off automatic updating, or schedule it for certain times. It certainly should at least not interrupt what I'm doing. That's a horrible user experience. In the mean time, I'm going to try using CNTRL/ALT/DELETE and task manager to see if I can stop the background process or startup service from running at all. While I was in there I noticed something very disturbing. Evernote was using hundreds of MB of RAM, and I wasn't even using the program!
  10. I would love it if I could add highlighting to clipped web pages AFTER I have clipped them so I don't have to read the whole article and highlight what I want up front. I should be able to go back to clipped pages and highlight them but there doesn't seem to be an option to do this.

  12. I second this request. I'm sure a lot of others do too. I'm really surprised it doesn't already have text wrapping around images. Seems pretty basic.
