  1. CalS: Thanks for your help! I DID find a fix. I deleted the EN Windows software on PC, including the Evernote databases. Reinstalled EN Windows and Synced the web version to the computer. Took a couple hours, given large number of notes in Evernote, but 'multiple tagging' now works. Why this fix worked, who knows? Since the problem continued over two software versions until I did the complete clean reinstall, I can only assume some small corruption in the software was hidden away until I wiped the slate completely clean.
  2. CalS, gazumped: Two days ago I downloaded, in the hope that the current EN Windows version might solve the 'multiple tag' problem that I first noticed in the previous version. Didn't solve the problem, so I then posted to the Forum. I have tried File Exit, cold boot of the PC, anything I could think of to clear caches, et al. Seems to be a relatively minor glitch with software, not data, but it was a tagging option I used constantly. I posted to the Forum to see if other users had the problem and had found a fix. I had a really annoying problem with Evernote a couple years ago where the software couldn't find the local database for love or money. I finally resolved that problem by totally wiping Evernote from the computer and reinstalling and reloading data from the web, a time-consuming big deal. My current issue is minor by comparison, EXCEPT that I find tagging very efficient, in many use cases a better approach than global searches, so I am hoping I can find a fix.
  3. DTLow: Thank you! I have only used the Forum a couple times over several years and wasn't really sure where to post my request for assistance.
  4. CalS: Yes, I am using Ctrl+Alt+T as always. I then add a tag and Evernote tells me it will add the tag to the selected notes. EXCEPT it doesn't add the tag to the selected notes, no matter how long I wait. Annoying, as 'multiple notes tagging' worked seamlessly in earlier versions of Evernote for Windows, which I have been using for at least 5 years.
  5. In the last couple versions of Evernote for Windows, I cannot add a tag to multiple notes. Not a problem to add a tag to a single note, but the 'multiple notes tagging' feature was very useful and I miss it. Am I missing something that has changed from earlier versions? I used to be able to select as many notes as needed and add or delete a tag in a single step, a great convenience!
  6. Dave-in-Decatur: In case of interest, I FINALLY found a fix. Tried what you suggested with no luck. Tried reinstalling the W10 EN client several times. Tried installing as Username-only as opposed to All-Users on my PC. Tried copying the EN database to a couple different locations on my hard drive in case software was having trouble locating the database. In all cases, did a complete uninstall including registry data so as to start with a clean result from reinstalling software. What worked: Synced notes from the cloud. Did nothing else before exiting software, as doing any navigating always resulted in the dreaded freeze within a few clicks. After leaving the W10 EN client, uninstalled the software. Downloaded the software anew. The new install then 'found' the database already downloaded to my hard drive from the cloud. I am so relieved, as I use the W10 EN client daily and find it much faster and simpler to navigate around then the web browser version. Why this worked? I haven't a clue. I assume the problem arose because the most recent W10 client update somehow made it impossible for the software to find the database on my hard drive, but why this should happen when it never happened before, who knows? Thanks for your help!
  7. After using Evernote on my Windows 10 PC with no problems for years, for last two days the local client goes into 'Non-response' every time I try to use. My data on web is OK. I have tried all the fixes I could find on the forum, ie, Fix Notes, Re-create Search Index, Expunge last several notes, Sync. No luck. I then tried a clean install. First deleted using iObit Uninstaller, removing registry files and all else. Downloaded from Evernote Downloads page. Opened the new install. Same non-response freeze after a couple clicks to open a note. QUESTION: I did not have time to Sync the new install on my Windows 10 PC to the cloud. However, the old data seemed to be there, as well as the freeze problem. Is it possible the Windows 10 install is still finding the old database on my PC? If so, where to find, can I delete and re-create from the perfectly functional cloud database? Help!
  8. I use Evernote Premium on a Windows PC, in Google Chrome, on iPad and Android cellphone. Most often I use the client version on my Windows PC for its speed and search capabilities. My Evernote database contains thousands of web clips. In recent iterations of the software, web clips mostly display in tiny, really miniscule text size occupying no more than one-quarter of the width of my widescreen monitor. Adjusting text size within the note is not really useful, as I can't expand the screen width of the clip or adjust the leading between lines of type. If I try to size-up, I wind-up with equally illegible, overlapping type confined in the clip's frame, the width of which I cannot adjust. I use Windows Magnifier as a kludge, but it's a 'follow the cursor' tool that requires constant repositioning. I use Evernote a LOT. I don't like having to make a couple dozen screen moves with Windows Magnifier to read a single note, especially when I may want to consult 10 or 20 notes on one visit to the Windows client. Adobe Acrobat has a drop-down menu always visible on screen that adjusts display by percentage. Google Chrome has the same feature in its drop-down Settings menu. I realize that Acrobat is managing display within its own software and format rules. Evernote is displaying imported HTML clips as well as the PDF that Acrobat displays. If that's a problem for Evernote developers, have they explored the type of slider control that is often used to instantly adjust display of, for example, JPGs in photo editing software, resizing the entire graphic object? Often the most legible version of a web clip that I ever see is the CLEARLY version in my Google Chrome web browser--because CLEARLY was purpose-built to be a LEGIBILITY tool as well as an upgrade to Evernote's older web clipper. It uses the full width of the screen, which the desktop Evernote client emphatically does not. A fast and easy means to adjust text for legibility would be a MAJOR enhancement of Evernote, IMHO. I confess that I find it really annoying to see note after note defaulting to a display that leaves the righthand 3/4 of screen empty--and the web clip almost illegibly small. Many news media have used advances in HTML and content management systems to make their content MUCH easier to view in the last year, eg, Guardian UK, NYTimes. I realize desktop client software is a different animal than web software--but 'responsive design' UI/UX principles are in fact very similar in terms of using screen real estate well. Thanks for your consideration.
