    OK, fair enough -- I'm also a 10+ year user of Evernote. I also don't always understand the choices that Evernote makes in their development priorities, but I also don't typically try to second-guess them on it either. Since I'm on the outside, and being a developer myself, I know that internal pressures and motivations aren't always visible externally.

    With respect to selective sync, I'd guess that focus on mobile apps was necessary due to storage constraints which don't usually exist in Windows/Mac. environments.  I'd think that Sync on demand would work for you, since your intent seems to be to keep some subset of your personal notes out of your work setup, so I don't see the inability to search unsynchronized notes being a downside. But I don't use that, so I don't know its ins-and-outs as I do with the multiple accounts scenario. Not sure which approach would be best for you to try out first in order for you to find out which (if either) work to your satisfaction.

    Hopefully you'll find a way to make Evernote work for you, and if not, maybe some other product will do it. So far, I haven't found any other product that works as well as Evernote for me, which is why I stick with it, but I realize that other folks have different needs / use cases. Good luck.

    Thank you! I can honestly say that Evernote has been one of the most essential apps in my career and personal life, and I've evangelized for them this whole 10 years. So there's a lot I'll put up with before I decide to go... (I think it was journalist James Fallows that made me aware of it.)  I'm optimistic that your suggestion will work at least at some level.

    You don't necessarily need two premium accounts. I use a paid account for personal stuff, and a free account for work. I can share notebooks freely between them, mainly from my work account to the personal paid account for when I work from home. The personal account is premium because I wind up doing a fair amount of R&D clipping, so it gets most of the content -- since it would relate to most any job I'd ever have, it can go along with me wherever I work. Works fine, a couple of nice to haves.

    Or you could use selective sync, as others have suggested.

    Well, you don't need to have all of your personal notes on your corporate server. See above.

    Well golly -- I've devoted a fair amount of my time making suggestions, beta testing and helping other users in the forums, and never been paid for it, maybe I should complain that my ideas haven't implemented too.

    Oh wait, it doesn't work that way...

    Sharing between a premium personal and free work account might be the ticket for me if it doesn't require lots of workarounds -- especially for PDF search. (Similarly, Sync-on-Demand won't work if I can't search unsynchronized notes.) If I can access 11 years and many GB of work-related material archived in EN this way, I'll be considerably less disappointed to not have a feature that is becoming make-or-break. So thank you for that suggestion. 

    Don't assume that I'm expressing my disappointment idly or crankily. My point wasn't to say that EN owes me. Rather, it was to say that as a big EN fan I've gamely played along as they implemented features that weren't nearly as critical, as reasonable, nor as long-requested as Selective Sync on Win & Mac clients. I'm glad you're satisfied with your particular workarounds within your particular workflow, and I'm hoping I can adapt yours to work within my own. But these workarounds don't necessarily negate the problem for those of us who have it, and they don't invalidate frustrations that it never got implemented beyond the iOS and Android clients. 


  3. I'm considering doing what Lutherian projected, though I'm a strongly-invested EN user of many years. There's no way I'm paying for two Premium accounts just because EN doesn't let me sync only work-related folders to my work laptop. (And my company won't spring for EN Business, so this is out-of-pocket for me.) 

    Just before I began this reply, I had downloaded Evernote onto my new work laptop, and was about to install and thought, "Nope. Do I really want gigs of unencrypted personal files on my corporate IT backup server?" It's not just a personal risk -- it's a huge waste of resources. 

    I've supported EN through many iterations and side projects, many of which I beta-tested, offered free UX advice (sometimes on these discussion boards), and enjoyed. But for some reason this feature, which other cloud services managed to implement, this one isn't ever on EN's radar. 

    Pleeeeeaaassse, Evernote, pleeeeeeasssse....


  4. Just updated to version 6.13.3 (details below) and am now stuck in a login loop. Evernote opens, asks for me to log in, accepts my input.

    But it does not open the main panel, then prompts me to re-login. Rebooting does not fix this. (Also tried to use the workaround in the prior topic, taking a screenshot via the toolbar and saving. This did not work.)

    Version 6.13.3 (455959 Direct)
    Editor: 1.30.3433 (fec246b)

     

    (That's what I get for updating while I'm at a meeting! Good thing I have the web interface to take notes on.)

  5. Ok, my log gives me a clue. Penultimate is trying to download the papers and can't:

  6. The registry keys were the problem, thank you! (I had them going back to Evernote2!)

    In case it helps for future reference, here's the error I'd gotten in OLRDclipper[date].txt: 

    2016-04-25 10:08:39 DEBUG  [1     ] - Loading localization from: C:\Program Files\Evernote\Evernote\OLIEResource.dll
    2016-04-25 10:08:39 WARN   [1     ] - Unable to load localization resource Str_Unknown:1
    2016-04-25 10:08:39 DEBUG  [1     ] - Localization loaded


  7. If it helps, I'm having the following error in OLRDclipper[date].txt:

     

    2016-04-25 10:08:39 DEBUG  [1     ] - Loading localization from: C:\Program Files\Evernote\Evernote\OLIEResource.dll

    2016-04-25 10:08:39 DEBUG  [1     ] - Localization loaded

    I have no enclipper.txt files.


  8. I'm getting zero response from Web Clipper for Safari for Guitarplayer.com. 

     

    http://www.guitarplayer.com/artist-lessons/1026/beatles-multitracks-reveal-true-a-hard-days-night-opening-chord--video/54947

     

    None of their pages seem to play ball with Clipper. Not even right-click and "Save [x] to Evernote"! 

     

    Looks like there's some kind of popup overlay they have on their pages. Could that be the problem? 


  9. Exact same problem here. Have to close the note to reopen and edit.  Happens after just a few seconds. 

     

    When typing a note I can type about 5 words and then it stops accepting input from the keyboard or trackpad.  I can shut the editor window and open it again.  Sometimes I can edit the note, sometimes I cannot.  This is new in the 5.6.2 beta 1
