  1. You can encrypt text in a note. Just highlight, right-click and say Encrypt. For file encryption, I started using a program called AxCrypt. It works well on Windows and got a good review on Lifehacker - where I found it.
  2. This is a lame workaround, but it does work. I thought there was a "duplicate note" command but I have been unable to find it. Maybe it was in 3.x or maybe I am thinking about another app altogether. Either way, make your list in EN as you want. Then right-click the note in List View and export it. When you are ready to do the list, import the note and check the items off there. Downside (besides the steps you have to go through) is if you change the original list, you need to remember to export it again. Also, once imported, it goes into the Imported Notes notebook. If you aren't planning on deleting the list when done, you'll need to move the note to a sync'd notebook. Upside is, if you want a record of when you completed the list each day/week/month, you will have that record unless you delete the list-notes when done. All that said, I'd still prefer a way to rest a list.
  3. I used to be a HUGE Listpro fan, but the lack of a cloud solution kills it for me. I have 3 PCs and a phone. Impossible to keep it in sync.
  4. I'd seriously go for this as well. If EN isn't meant to be a to-do list, then having checkboxes sure is an odd feature. I agree EN isn't a checklist app, but by having checkboxes in it, it lends itself to having lists in it once in a while.
  5. Something to consider for future clients - a way for you to communicate status updates to end users. Those on holiday and not using EN ever need to know about an issue that crops up because they haven't logged into their client, but those that are using it could get some red exclamation point in the task bar or something alerting them to an issue they might be experiencing with your services.
  6. This may explain what I have been seeing the last two days. I just installed Google Chrome and the EN extension and it is HORRIBLE compared to the IE clipper for WIndows. It would stick on "synchronizing" way too long and bomb out. I figured it was just a bad tool because EN clients on my machine have been working fine over the past few days. Today though, it has been quite fast, which corresponds to the updates here. I still prefer the IE clipper as it works with the local client vs the Chrome clipper which works with the online database, but at least today the Chrome clipper has been usable.
  7. BUt just to clarify, the data is not encrypted on the local machine or your server, just the communication, right?
  8. Just curious to see how much other use their database. I am a premium member so have been adding files more often with that feature. I have 1,352 notes and it is about 360MB. (For Windows 7/Vista, you can see the file size at C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Evernote\Evernote\Databases\) I've been using it since v1.x many eons ago but with the 3.x release and premium features, I have probably used it more in the last 12-18 months than I did in the previous 5+ years.
  9. thanks. that helps. I wish it would sync after you either minimize Evernote or move to a different note, syncing the one that was just saved to the local DB. Would be a nice premium feature. That would get my money.
  10. Is the sync frequency higher with the premium version? I've found that the 1 hour sync frequency of the free version just isn't cutting it for me. Off often I log off or undock my laptop and changes don't get sync'd to my account. Then when I get home and use my desktop PC, whatever I did in Evernote during that last hour isn't there. I searched help but could find nothing on that topic.
  11. Are there plans to bring the full client back to Windows Mobile devices?
  12. These aren't log files. They are the actual note created on the device. They are in \storage card\my documents. The reason I found them is I opened Pocket Word and there they all were. These aren't log files within the \evernote program folder.
  13. I found a bunch of strange text files in My Documents on my storage card - things like "04.28.2008 xxxxxx.txt" (where xxxxxx was probably the time stamp) and it turned out these were notes created on the device with the 3.x client and then uploaded. I'd prefer those be deleted after uploading. Doesn't the client only see what is on the web anyway? Is there any benefit to keeping them on the device? Of course, my real preference is a full client with an evernote database on the device...
  14. Having had the full mobile client, the current one leaves a LOT to be desired. Offline access is a must. the Web UI is just too slow.
