  1. Hi, I had moved mine sometime ago, but with the last update, Evernote seems to have moved the files back to the default directory. Does this sound correct, or ? I could easily use the Tools to move it back to where I did have it, but my concern is I would not have seen this execept by chance, and my back up service was not configured to back up the database from the default location, so it was a bit worrying that it got moved without my permission.

  2. Hi Dave, for me, using Chrome, there is no search box in the upper right, but if I use Edge, I do see it... odd... that is indeed what I would like to see...
  3. Hi, Is there a user manual for evernote (for windows)? All I wanted to find out was if there where shortcuts to insert time and date. 25 minute later I still do not know. First I clicked on Help expecting a typical index off line help tool to pop up. Nope, off to a web page. Well at least i can search using that. Nope, just a bunch of articles on general topics with no search function. Off to this forum. Searched on ' user manual ', ' user guide ' and, nope, nothing... So now I bow to my fellow users on the forum for explaining what I missed as far as getting detailed instruction on how to use each function of evernote. Oh yeah, and if there are short cuts for inserting time and date. Thanks grant
  4. HI, I have this problem too. I would rather not have to delete files I know nothing about, unless instructed by the support team. I have tried clicking through, but the 5 items do not accept a check mark so I can not complete them. I have dismissed the whole box and restarted maybe 20 times since this started. (probably with a few updates inbetween) @Austin G, or @dconnet can you maybe help? I sent a ticket in last week, but have not gotten any reply than the automated one confirming they got my request. Ticket# 2427859 Grant Nelson (paying customer)
  5. DT Low, of course I searched this forum before going sending an email to support (I have been a member since 2011). My issue is, and others have it, but from what I saw, no straight forward solution, is a small thing, but I do pay for support, so would expect some kind of rely inside a week.. The issue: I always get (probably 20 times) the ' Evernote Essentials, lets Get Started' dialog box when I restart Evernote... its not possible to complete the 5 tasks either, which I assume would make it stop popping up... other posts say its supposed to stop after a number of times, or, of course, I should finish the tasks, but that does not work. If you can find an answer on the forum the helps more than the answers that already where supplied, i would be very happy. Metrodon, I will wait a few more day, and then try the Twitter mode... I agree, there is no reason to not answer me because my question is not as 'big' as other peoples... Regards, Grant
  6. Hi, I submitted a ticket on 17 March, and have no reply other than the first one where they said they got my request (Ticket# 2427859) and will reply soon. So far I have heard nothing, and sent two reminders. Maybe I am doing something wrong? Or they don't really care about supporting paying individuals? Grant
  7. Hi, The new display mode is nice, but when I add two pdfs to a page, how do I move then around - as in move one above the other? I do not see able to select the pdf to move or copy it. Also, I find it hard to get my cursor to before the first PDF so I can add some text above the PDF.... any thoughts? Thanks Grant
  8. +1 Any update on this after 3 years? ;-) It really would be handy.
  9. Search would be much more useful if Saved Searched would also save the Sort parameters. (maybe combine with with remembering the sort order for each notebook or tag selection too, instead of 'one sort order fits all approach used now)
  10. Hello Evernote: Being able to include sort order in saved searches has been a frequent guest for many years. It would be a very powerful, yet simple to use feature, that would really enhance the usefulness of Evernote. Thank you. Grant
  11. Hi, When creating a new notebook using the menu, you get the option to create a local notebook. Using shortcuts, or right click does not give you this option and creates an online notebook. Maybe I am doing someting wrong, and would like to hear If this how it does work, of course I can try to remember this minor querk, but if I forget, then I can not change an online notebook back to local, which seems unhandy too. Maybe I should send a bug request, or should I enter a feature request and will they react to that? Thanks, Grant
  12. The s-pen only works on certain devices. The tablet has to have the sensors to accept the pen. Evernote has already created a stylus that works on all devices. I don't know if it is as precise as the s-pen, but it appears to be significantly better than an ordinary stylus. I don't own one of Evernote's styluss because my device has an s-pen. If you are interested, here is the link: https://www.evernote.com/market/feature/stylus?sku=STYL001001&utm_source=PLATFORM_EN_WINDOWS_DESKTOP&utm_medium=in_app&csrfBusterToken=b10d6dff The ´Evernote´ stylus you link to is only for iOS (apple), which I know is the ´only´ and thus ´all devices´ but some of us aliens use Android ;-) for which there is not yet (that I know of) such a fine pen
  13. Hi Brian, Maybe we need to look at the details, since I get the same behavior using the windows version... I think the confusion is that the file name as seen in the Evernote note remains the same, but each time I open a file to edit it, the document editor (LibreOffice in Windows, OfficeSuite in Android) creates a new file with "FileName" (number).docx. That 'number' goes up by one each time I open the file. If I dig into my evernote directories I find that on both platforms evernote is storing each one of these versions. So, in Evernote I see the file attachment with the original name, and it opens the latest version (in fact today I found I had lost all my changes in one document, but I am not sure why yet) but, in the background evernote is eating up space by saving each iteration of the document. Could this be because of the 'history' feature premium user have, and evernote is nicely saving each edit of a document too? That would make sense, but it could end up using a lot of SD card, or HD space, if the documents are large, without users being aware why. Maybe also, it could be that Evernote watches the date, and only does this during one day, and starts over with the numbering the next day... Today the numbers started at one again (but like I said, all my edits from the last days where also gone, so maybe I somehow messed things up). I will check tomorrow to see if the values are reset or not...
  14. Handwriting crashes Evernote on my HTC Desire 2 running Android version 2.3.3
  15. asus tf 700 Officesuite 7.4.1671 pro edition Evernote Version 5.8 bêta (but It also happened with an earlier version) Android Version 4.2.1
  16. I recently reset my android tablet, installed evernote and officesuite. I still get this problem of saving new versions with a number added when I select replace. Also, now officesuite has random ads taking up the bottom 15% of the sceern, and it claims the trial is 90 days, not 7 days. All in all enough oddities for me to ask if anyone else sees this and/or if there are fixes. Thanks. Grant
  17. Thanks for replying Brian. I indeed followed your workflow, and have even reinstalled evernote (but not officesuite) and its still saving every version in that unsaved notes directory. you might be looking in the wrong place, you need to look under the /user-xxxxx/unsaved_notes directory.
  18. For me its worse, the pdf are forced to open in Skitch, and then the 4 I just tried are blank. I am trying to find my booking number and frequet flyer number and confirm my flight and seats and really did not have the time to fuss with trying to find where the actual documents are stored so I can open them with another app. I called the airline instead. This kind of defeats the purpose of Evernote. I use an Asus tf700t Indeed, very sloppy design and/or testing.
  19. Hi Brian, Indeed the note shows the same name in Evernote, but where it is stored, under android/data/com.android.../unsaved_notes each of those files with the version indication is saved. This happens when ever I used 'edit', even if I do not make any changes. I rarely would access these particular files from this location, so I guess what concerns me is that my storage is being filled up with each one of these version. That is not a problem if the file is 20kb, but if its 20mb, it could eventually be a problem in that it could fill up limited storage quickly and many people would not know where that space was going to. (is this behavior maybe part of the version/history record function for premium users?) Thanks Grant
  20. I found this thread after trying to apply bulleting to a list I just made on my Android tablet and wasted 30 minutes trying to figure out what I was doing wrong because it just would not do some very basic things. Thus, I am adding my voice to the need to improve. Mainly, I found, that if I make a simple list, with no formating, that I can not go back and select one item and bullet it, nor multipverle items and bullet them, let alone use varying levels of indenting. I seems I need to bullet each line as I go and then I can at least indent some, etc., but cutting and pasting to get the order to better represent my thoughts as they develop is limited to one line at a time and the rsult of pasting it uncertain all of which breaks my train of thinking. For a tool that includes the word 'notes' in its name, I find this behavior less than satisfactory. The fact that Evernote supports many platforms is not an excuse - they just need to standardized on a format, like other tools do. Consider that many apps can edit a .doc or .rft document across all platforms. Its doable, if they prioritize it. I use evernote android when I travel (and when Evernote is an extremely important part of my day to day activities and information management) instead of the 5 x heavier laptop. Thus, I really want the android version to be not just a ' basic' version, moslty used for viewing and a bit of editing, but something that you can use for solid note taking. I believe this will be true of more and more users.
  21. When ever I open a document it adds a version number to my document, even if I have not made or saved the changes the last time I had it open. Also, I dont like the fact it changes the document name. I have submitted this to support, but it might be handy if they know if others see this happening too.
  22. Don't forget to add the feature in your request to save the sort order (tags, but also any thing else) in saved searches!
