  1. I discovered it gone via the EN app on Apple OS 10.10.5 Yosemite. But then gone even when accessing via web. What was most curious was that the info box showed they were deleted in October, but were from a different folder. Strange, but no actual loss.
  2. Much thanks! That's all I needed to make the move. I still love EN, but farewell to Penultimate.
  3. Too bad. Sorry EN didn't see the value in Penultimate. I need to get over it and just move on.
  4. @darioangelo - I've never used anything but PE on my iPad. Can you tell me one thing about Noteshelf? For the paper selections, is there a grid paper choice? I use PE mostly for math class and the graph paper was a great feature.
  5. I had a notebook set up, _New , to be clear there is an underbar then the word New. I used this to have the notebook be a the top of the list, and treated it as an 'unfiled' folder. Going through it every so often to keep, move, delete, etc. Today, that folder, and a couple others that started with underbar, were deleted. The notes all sitting in trash, and all show 10/27 delete date as well as the original folder being 'Forbes' not the _NEW folder. Not a rant, asking - Is that use of _XXX for folder name frowned upon? I can't have been the only one to use that to keep a folder up top.
  6. I got the note on this 2 hours ago, just saw it. Glad they took care of that. Now for the bug fixes from this thread.
  7. I got this message yesterday. They know they need to push an update. Let's see how long it takes.
  8. Penultimate was the main reason I bought the latest iPad. I write notes with it all the time. Glad to see this warning. I'll monitor this thread before updating my OS. I'll see how to start a ticket, I've been premium for a long time.
  9. I was thrilled to find Penultimate and the Apple pencil/iPad combo. Sorry to see Penultimate abandoned instead of updated regularly. I hope EN decides it's worth saving.
  10. The same way many other apps that have large data files, (iTunes, Dropbox, for example) and let you choose where to locate the data, it would be great for the EN preferences to ask where to locate the database folder. I used Symbolic linker for the last year, but when I tried to upgrade my drive, it blew up. I needed to reinstall EN, and am back with the DB folder on my main drive. I'm on a Mac, with main drive SSD, so I prefer to keep that less full.
  11. Issues is right. I wanted to get large files off my SSD boot drive, and used symbolic link to redirect EN to find the database on an HD. Time passed, and the data drive started to get full, so I wanted to bump it from 3TB to 8TB. I copied the data with CCC, and made a new symbolic link. EN crashed. I killed the link and figured I'd give up on using the HD for EN. Still crashed. I put the 3TB drive back in. Works. But there is no symbolic link left. It's as if the app learned that's where the database is. I can't move the database back to the SSD even if I try.
  12. Great idea. In addition, the highlight/drag feature can use some updating. Instead of just 'drag', there should be a menu to allow copy/cut/etc. This is a great product, I hope Evernote continues to support and update it.
  13. Hi Deano! I'm so afraid that this app has no future. If I had my way, Penultimate would continue to add new features. A sidebar that offers advanced editing. It would let you write or draw, and then shrink a chosen area down, so you could get clear writing or drawings, etc. I can think of a dozen edit type features that would add to this great app. But. For whatever reason, it feels like it's just a legacy app, no future path for it.
  14. I am using Penultimate on the iPad Pro, and am pretty happy with it. The one issue I have is importing images. Maybe I'm just missing something. It looks like the only way to import is to access the camera or Photos. Are there any work-arounds to import from other apps, such as dropbox? Even an image already stored in EN needs to first be moved to Photo to then import to PU.
  15. I am moving from using Snow Leopard to Yosemite. I have an SSD as my boot drive and moved my database using a symbolic link. In effect, the folder containing all EN data is replaced by an alias pointing to a folder on a regular HDD containing the same data. Now, when I updated to Yosemite, I see the folder structure for Evernote seems completely different. Since I planned to dual-boot, sometimes going back to Slow Leo, I'd need to have two databases on the harddrive. Has anyone run into this, and are there any better approaches?
  16. @nl - you might want to delete this, and add it as a new question. It's completely different from mine.
  17. Is this either not as simple as I hoped, or a feature no longer available? As it stands, it seems the integration is one directional, PU docs flow to EN, but that's it?
  18. Sorry if this has been addressed, I've searched for a few days now and not seeing it. All I want to do is add a note, thru Evernote, and I understand it goes into the Penultimate notebook, then see it in Penultimate. Is that function gone? I've been tinkering and can do it in reverse, docs created in PU flow to EN just fine. So far, the only way to add to PU that I see is to hold down on the screen and import from Photos, No option to pull from any other location? Note - I'm running the latest rev of both Evernote and Penultimate
  19. I would love to have the ability to choose to put the data folder in a different place. On my Slow Leopard Mac, running an SSD for the OS, I used Symbolic linker to send Evernote to a folder on the larger, regular drive. For whatever reason, EN doesn't work on Yosemite using this method. I'd hope it would be simple (and a feature many would like) to have a preference allowing EN to use a different drive for its contents.
  20. For what it's worth, no response to my ticket, but near instant twitter reply. "That one auto-sends as a reminder of our guidelines. If you've read them, then feel free to ignore if you see it again." Even though I have a premium account, I look at my usage, and the 4GB bar is fine by me.
  21. I don't know, just guessing, but perhaps all Evernote service looks at is your upload usage currently as compared with your normal, or average. It probably sees a merged note as just another upload without knowing, or caring, about the source of the Note. So if you normally upload, say 100MB/day, and then you upload 1GB/day, it may trigger the email. (just guessing on the numbers). That's exactly my situation. A burst of activity. Short lived, and nowhere neat the 4GB limit. Just a fast 1GB.
  22. I got the note. I am a premium user as well. This month my usage shows 1.3GB of 4 used, with 20 days to go. So it's not really obvious to me as I'm on a runrate to just hit the limit. I use the service to scan finance articles for future reference. PDFs that run 5-7MB per page and 2-3 page average. Maybe the burst of activity, the 1.3GB was over the last couple days, is what tripped the note. I was just surprised to see this.
