  1. This seems somewhat disingenuous, given that there was an Evernote-branded Fujitsu ix-500 scanner sold for years—obviously the purpose of the device was to scan and store files electronically, with the native format being PDF. Indeed, you've commented on it: And regardless, I hardly think people are making this up—why would they? I, for one, used to export my entire Evernote database as PDFs as an emergency backup. It's a bit hard to understand why this obviously sensible feature has been discontinued.
  2. "Update: Email a Copy of a Note" goes to an empty page here: https://discussion.evernote.com/announcement/170-update-email-a-copy-of-a-note/ Would like to know about it—thanks!
  3. Thanks for this. And that is insane—I never had this issue before, in 17 years (!) of using Evernote, and I have 12.5k notes. What did it turn out was "bad" about the note? Just wondering if there's any possible way to find it other than your laborious method above...
  4. Thanks—good to know! But what do you suppose is going on here, then—I am unable to export my notes because the EN Legacy app is stuck on "Downloading content…" for more than 24 hours now: https://discussion.evernote.com/forums/topic/131335-trying-to-use-evernote-legacy-to-export-notes-but-stuck-at-downloading-content…/
  5. I installed Evernote Legacy per suggestions, and am trying to export all my notes—but once I select a name and location for the enex file and start the process, a dialog box opens saying ""Downloading content…" It ran for 24 hours with little progress, so I tried to restart it today—and the same thing. How is this possible? I upgraded to the new version—but did that erase all the data somehow? This is such a nightmare—maybe the worst ever upgrade to an app I've ever seen—and the fact that it's going to take 10-12 DAYS to even get a response from customer service is just mental… Thanks in advance!
  6. Thanks. Is it possible to then uninstall v 10 (without losing any data)? And is there some process to export all EN notes, with each folder an individual .enex file? I believe there used to be... EN should really put this all in a sticky, since everyone seems bewildered by the total loss of essential features (like integration with Mac Services (right-click menu), "Share With", and other stuff completely essential to any note-taking program on a computer. Thanks in advance!
  7. This is huge mistake, if true—is it also why PopClip can no longer trigger EN? I think it's finally time to cancel my subscription—I was a very early adopted of EN, and it's had it's ups and downs, but why they would remove this basic functionality and integration is beyond me. What good is a note-taking app if I can't right-click text and add it to a note?
  8. It was working fine for me on Mac with Catalina—but not functioning properly with Big Sur... However, I fixed it—disabling then reenabling the extension in Safari Preferences did the trick!
  9. My Web Clipper button in the toolbar is faint (i.e. translucent and not fully opaque), and isn't functioning. I am able to access Web Clipper with my keyboard shortcut. Any idea what's going on? Thanks! William
  10. I frequently drag Evernote notes and drop them into DevonTHINK—couldn't be easier—but since the update, I'm unable to drag a note outside the Evernote window. What happened, and can we please get back the ability to drag and drop notes? Thanks kindly, William
  11. I'm having the exact same problem with pdf clipping on Safari 14, returning the error: Clipper has encountered an error Unknown error occurred. EDAM/ENML_VALIDATION Element type "embed" must be declared. It also offered a link/button to copy the logs, which are: Evernote Web Clipper - 1.0.7 (40) Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_7) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/14.0 Safari/605.1.15 Topee/1.5.0 Clipper core: 1.5.0-702a62a Locale: en 12542827 experiments status: { "SaveButtonPos_CLIPPER-1768": null, "ClipTypeOrder_CLIPPER-1992": null } 2020\9\29 16:01:26 DBG: Analytics: Simsearch feature_info feature_info_shown Object:{} 2020\9\29 16:02:54 DBG: Analytics: Simsearch feature_info feature_info_shown Object:{} 2020\9\29 16:07:27 DBG: Analytics: Simsearch feature_info feature_info_shown Object:{} 2020\9\29 16:09:08 DBG: Analytics: Simsearch feature_info feature_info_shown Object:{} 2020\9\29 16:32:43 ERR: Unhandled error at :0 Script error. 2020\9\29 16:57:56 DBG: Analytics: Simsearch feature_info feature_info_shown Object:{} 2020\9\29 17:12:34 DBG: Analytics: Simsearch feature_info feature_info_shown Object:{} 2020\9\29 17:12:43 DBG: Analytics: Simsearch feature_info feature_info_shown Object:{} 2020\9\29 17:24:46 DBG: Analytics: Simsearch feature_info feature_info_shown Object:{} Just to be clear, this doesn't happen on every pdf in Safari—just some. Example here: https://www.thelancet.com/pdfs/journals/ebiom/PIIS2352-3964(17)30164-0.pdf Anyone have a clue as to what's going on here? Thanks! William
  12. Yeah, this is pretty lame—having the exact same issue, multiple times a day.
  13. Come on, guys—the Web Clipper for Safari is just totally erratic and unreliable. Some days it works on some sites, then suddenly—for no apparent reason—it won't work on any page at all. It's just not ready for prime time, and although it gets worse with each subsequent "update", it has never really worked reliably—and this extremely irritating for those of us who pay and count on some semblance of functionality. Evernote has been consistently unreliable (if that's not an oxymoron), nowhere more so than with the Web Clipper, and this is tremendously frustrating. At least 25-30% of the time I have to use Skitch to grab a page, then manually enter in a title and url, etc. And then, of course, it's not in editable text format. I'm trying to transition to DEVONthink—their apps, including Office Pro, have no such problem. Their universal "Sorter" will take in everything I throw at it: from emails to videos to Word docs to web pages. So it's not as if it's some technical impossibility. And their cost starts to look reasonable, even cheap, after I look back at not only the fee for Evernote Premium, but the enormous waste of valuable time I've spent trying to get Evernote to work properly and as advertised.
