  1. Following up to my own post... First, it seems that note history is a premium feature, I recently updated to premium, which explains why I did not notice the issue before. It seems that when I search, evernote searches the note history as well. That is search will find notes that include the search terms, if the search terms show up in the history, even if those terms are not in the current version of the note. This is good, although not real obvious as implemented. This is good because if gives the opportunity to search history for confidential information -- so that action can be taken to protect that information. [Update: I was wrong, there doesn't seem to be a way to search history?] Currently what I'm doing is encrypting the text in my note, and then to be sure the unencrypted version is not available in history, I duplicate the note, then permanently delete the original note (along with its history). I've noticed the history is not copied when a note is duplicated. Tedious but it gets the job done. Is there a better way ? Some ideas that might improve usability / security: * evernote could warn user when the encrypt text that history may contain unencrypted version, and offer user option to delete history. * evenote could keep history encrypted and password protected. * (unrelated to original issue) when duplicating a note it might be nice if there was an option to also duplicate the history. I'd leave the default as-is (no history duplication), or prompt every time so user is aware of history situation on the new note.
  2. Evernote Team and Users, I use the encrypted text feature to encrypt sensitive information in evernote. But I've noticed that the "note history" (control-shift-i -> view note history), will have historical versions with the text unencrypted, which defeats the purpose of encrypting the text. How can I work around this problem ? Is there a way to delete the note history ? If so, could I delete only some of entries in note history, or is it all or nothing ? Maybe I need to create a new note, encrypt the text immediately, and then permanently delete the old note ? not fun. Other ideas ? Also, is there a way to search the note history of all my notes ? I'd like to search for strings that might reveal important information.
