  1. So it works sometimes. It doesn't work all of the time on complex HTML pages, but the more pure text with HTML links vs lots of CSS and other HTML garbage, the more likely it is to work. In its simplest form, create a Table of Contents note, then do the above steps in Windows and all links will go away.
  2. When I snip using the Chrome clipper (Actually the Chrome Evernote clipper in the stable release channel of Chromium based Edge) in the Microsoft Power Apps Community Forum, the page turns black and the note is unusable. Here is a link to a page I wanted to capture. I have to use Article mode because the Simplified Article messes up the Code boxes. Here is what the page looks like normally. Here is what it looks like after the Clipper does its thing. The preview is ok, but as soon as I hit "Submit" the screen goes black and the text becomes unreadable against the background, then it saves the black note.
  3. Through the menu system, you just press CTRL-A to select all text, then Formatting, Hyperlink, remove. It will whack them all.
  4. Check the "Show Advanced Options" in the Options dialog (lower left corner) go to the Synchronization section. Check the Purge Rarely Viewed Note content. (this doesn't delete data, it just removes the note body from your local copy. The metadata remains (subject, tags, etc.). Change the Purge Note Content... days to your preference. If you just want it to clean up, change it to 1 day and check back in a day or so. Then change it to something more reasonable. I keep mine at 7. The more days you have, the larger your local copy is.
  5. Yes. I never merge notes on the Mac. I just stick them in a temp notebook and merge when I get to my PC. I never know what order they will get merged in.
  6. Mac version doesn't have notes on demand, which is super-handy with a 10GB and growing database. I don't need all of those notes on my machine at all times. When you create a table of contents, the Mac version doesn't do anything to let you know it is a TOC. The windows client lets you search for sourceurl:"file://Table*" to see all table of contents notes. Mac version has a useless tool bar for notes. In fact, it has no tool bar. Just a big green SHARE button. You have to hit the ellipses to get to useful commands like print, trash, etc. There is no productivity gain for this. This is just Evernote trying to get people to share notes to get others to install and buy Evernote. You cannot put your shortcuts across the top like you can on the WIndows client, so you have this long list down the left that makes you scroll further to even find your notebooks. The mac version has no user interface to allow automatic importing of files through a monitored folder. Those are just a few things off the top of my head. I do my level best to NOT use my Mac client, instead saving work when I am at my PC. I know some of those can be done via scripting, or may not be of value, but objectively, the Mac client is less capable than the Windows client. Whether or not those capabilities matter to someone is an individual issue for someone to decide.
  7. I use Scannable almost every day. The camera app in Evernote doesn't compare. I can arrange pages, etc. and ensure it all comes in as a PDF. It is not just about taking a picture and putting in Evernote. That isn't what Scannable is for.
  8. Force kill the app and try to sign back in. if you have 2 factor authentication set up, is it asking for your code? uninstall/reinstall Scannable. it is working fine here, and I have whatever is the latest in the app store.
  9. You should contact that apps support forum. I don't know what that apps is and Google doesn't help. But it isn't an Evernote issue.
  10. Good job finding it. I've had more than one sync issue caused by notes in the trash on my iPhone.
  11. The Chrome clipper is independent of the installed evernote client. Just go to the google extension store and re-install it. Not sure why it got uninstalled. The clipper actually pushes content directly to the Evernote service, not your local client. Your client sync's it down.
  12. If this is a shared note, you can only add tags if you have edit access as @DTLow indicated. Additionally, with edit access, you can only add tags that the owner has in their notebook. You cannot create new tags in their account.
  13. Note that those versions are no longer secure and may not be supported. Evernote patched a security bug last year that required a client side fix. I'm not even sure if the one @gazumped pointed to will sync now that Evernote data is all in the Google cloud. Not sure when that transition happened, but I think it was after 2015...
  14. I've been using Sync on Demand for a few years. Works pretty well. I am using less than 1GB of drive space for my 8GB-9GB evernote notebooks..
  15. Win32 refers to both 32bit and 64bit apps. It is the API interface, not the bittedness. The underlying platform of macOS does have its roots in the 70's, but the user interface was developed fresh when they started over with OS X and was designed to handle multiple DPI monitors of high and low res (which Windows still cannot handle without the DPI percentage adjustment hack) and their UI was designed to have better control so the OS could adjust apps colors right from the start. Hence system wide dark mode without apps having to be rewritten. Windows has done the same rewrite by the way, but only for UWP/PWA style apps. Which no one is using. My understanding it is a virtual impossibility to do it for Win32. It would be as much work for developers to rewrite to support as it would to just redo their apps. Which will be never. We'll be dealing with Win32 APIs until well past 2050. IT departments will not rewrite apps to support dark mode. If you want dark mode, they will let you use the AS/400.
  16. More specifically, Windows dark mode doesn't support the old Win32 style apps, which is what 99% of apps on Windows are. It only supports the UWP, PWA style apps. Evernote could roll their own, but instead of it being a single Dark Mode experience for users, users would have to manually configure each Win32 app, and Evernote (and other dev's) would have to come up with a UI to modify, and support multiple DPI modes, video drivers, etc. It gets to be a mess. I can be done of course, but Windows makes it really really difficult and tedious to do. And I don't think all Store apps can be supported either. There is an Evernote in the store, but it is a Win32 app written with a wrapper so it can be downloaded from the store. I'm not defending Evernote, or Windows. It is just a huge mess. Which is to be expected with an OS that has its roots in the mid-90's.
  17. Yes, I'm on Windows. The direct link to the current version is https://cdn1.evernote.com/win6/public/Evernote_6.18.4.8489.exe
  18. Not sure what you are talking about. Downloading the Windows version from https://evernote.com/download gives me an .EXE file.
  19. If you had a previous laptop/hard drive, you may need to go to the web client, remove your device there, then try syncing. It may think you already have a device, or you have some other older device, or a mobile device and your 2 count is up. It will not remove devices automatically.

    Try syncing again. Sometimes it is a transient sync error. Close evernote, reopen and try again. If those fail, sync again, and immediately open the Activity Log. Help|Activity log. Make the window large enough you can read it. It is too small to really make use of in the default size. Just maximize it. Read from the bottom up to see what the most recent lines say and look for an error. If the error in the log looks like something you can fix, post back here and we can help. If it says something like " server unavailable" or something, you'll need to check your internet connectivity and ensure there isn't anything blocking access.
  21. The CTRL + Semi-colon key is fairly common. Same thing happens in Excel for example.
  22. I figured there was a reason. For me it was always frustrating because I am an Import & Delete guy, so once the file existed, I just wanted it in Evernote. I eventually set up a robocopy script to sync a network folder our copier scanned to to a local folder on my PC.
  23. It does make you wonder if this is how the Support team keyboards look.
  24. Network drives are specifically not supported in this scenario. I'm not exactly sure why, but this has been the case for many many years. Glad you figured it out and got it working.
  25. You could also modify the "updated" date, but that would change automatically if you edit the note again. If your dates are super specific this won't work, buy if they are more of a month year thing, you could add tags and use those. 201905 for May 2019 for example. That gets too tedious though of you need days too.
