    Microsoft Store???

    They are identical. Evernote just uses a wrapper on their win32 version so you can install in the store if you are restricted to store apps (policy or S mode) or if you like automatic updates in the background.

    Evernote for Windows 6.13 GA

    So now some of the reasons for the speed issues are coming to light.... No one expects a browser to perform like a desktop app, but now we have a desktop app performing like a browser, because it is a browser. 😕

    Evernote for Mac 7.3 Beta 2

    Interesting. I checked on my mac this morning and it no longer asked me to downgrade. It did on Friday or Saturday, but I declined having had seen the post above. Normally I'd have clicked ok without manually comparing versions.

    Evernote for Windows 6.13 GA

    Reminds me of the EN 4.x days for Windows when it was built on the Microsoft .NET framework, and was notoriously unreliable. And this explains why the editor is so horrible in the current versions. It doesn't behave at all like an editor should. The cursor moves around on you, jumping from the bottom to the top, or from the note to the subject line. I am sure the EN developers are playing whack-a-mole with the Chromium API trying to keep up or figure out how all of the features are supposed to come together. I'm not at all impressed with the direction EN has taken since the new CEO came on board. It is as buggy as ever, and jumping into bed with Google so deeply has caused no end of problems for end users.

    Version checking in the future will be appreciated so a newer version doesn’t try to “upgrade” to an old version.

    All those changes to the PDF features that (checks forums) no one asked for. I despise the new pdf rendering and features in the Windows version.

    Evernote, is it for me?

    Evernote is NOT HIPAA compliant, so if any of those records fall under HIPAA, that is a no. Search for HIPAA on this page. https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005527-Evernote-Business-FAQ I know OneNote from Microsoft can be made to be HIPAA compliant, but it isn't out of the box. You'd probably need to hire a certified Microsoft Partner that is learned in getting Office 365 environments HIPAA compliant. It isn't just a checkbox in options.
  8. Hopefully it is as @Shane D. describes and it is just under a different email. Worst case scenario they are on your iPhone 6s and just haven't sync'd to the cloud for some reason and you can usually fix that by making sure the client is logged in properly then letting it sync.

    I think I am going to disable updates entirely at this point until I see if QC is any better. I can see after 2 days after this was released forum support hasn't changed. 🤨

    Excellent. Will test this tonight!

    Are there any plans to fix the issue where merging notes will cause data loss, or is that by design?

    "SYNC" feature for small files synchronization

    That is what OneDrive or Dropbox are for. The import feature of evernote is just that, a way to mass import files or have files automatically imported if a scanner drops them in a folder.
  13. Enable "Sync on Demand". The way to really clean it up is: Log off of Evernote. Delete the .exb file. (be sure 100% of your content has sync'd and you have no local only notebooks, which it sounds like you don't) Log into the client. Enable Sync on Demand in the settings. My 8-9GB of data in my Evernote account is only taking up about 200MB locally. That will grow as I select or add notes, but will eventually find a balance as old notes will be purged locally but remain available in my account, and will download again if I open them on my PC.

    Because if your internet connection is messed up or isolated (like in a coffee shop before you log in) your computer cannot validate that the certificate Evernote is using is authentic, so it warns you. It is the same warning you'd get if it really was fraudulent, but Windows shows the same thing regardless of why it cannot authenticate it. That isn't an Evernote thing. Outlook and other apps do the same thing.

    FWIW, the sync errors are gone with 6.13.14. Had a whole bunch of notes not syncing for the past month that finally sync'd to the cloud. 👍

    Evernote for Windows 6.13 Beta 3

    6.13.13 doing the same, so I think it is their service, not the client. Yup. Confirmed service is down. http://status.evernote.com/ I'll wait until it is back up before upgrading to see if the sync error is fixed. At least I can access my notes right now, in their various states of syncedness.

    Evernote for Windows 6.13 Beta 3

    LOL! They were told two weeks before releasing that to GA it had a sync bug. They can publish an entire month with broken core functionality in their sleep.
  18. Why, when I log into Evernote.com to access my data, is Evernote trying to set third party cookies to DoubleClick.net and Tealiumiq.com? DoubleClick is an ad tracking company. What are they paying you for when I open my notes? I am not sure what Tealiumiq is even after going to their website. I am continuing to block their cookies, and uBlock Origin is blocking DoubleClick scripts.

    Hope you are tracking that notes/scans created via your Scannable app also cause this issue in the Windows client.

    Running so slow it is unusable

    The only thing I've been able to do that makes using the windows client tolerable is enable sync on demand. EN uses a SQL LIte database format and it is horrible. It routinely does cleaning which is what you see. It totally locks up the client. With sync on demand enabled and if the substantial portion of your notes are not downloaded (just headers, not data) then it works much better. My total data size is 8-9GB, but I have less than 1GB sync'd and performance is tolerable. I don't know what database they use on the Mac. I love it though. My anemic 2015 Macbook (the one with the mobile processor) with the full database downloaded runs circle around my i7 16GB Surface Pro 4.

    Evernote for Windows 6.13 Beta 3

    There was no forum post announcing 6.13 GA, and I am not sure it is still being pushed out. That is the build who's version must not be named.

    Evernote for Windows 6.13 Beta 3

    If I'm worried about losing my hard drive I'll think about it. Otherwise, I'll let the new QA department finish their work and publish the fix. Idea: Have the QA department read beta threads looking for bug reports to make sure bugs that are reported that cause syncs to stop working are fixed before pushing out to GA. Just an idea.

    Didn't you say that just wiped your changes? I think I'll pass on that "fix"

    No. that destroys links. I don't want to risk breaking links.

    Any update on a beta 4? I have an increasing number of notes that won't sync. I just edited one that was nearly 2yrs old and it won't sync.
