  1. These changes at Evernote are a long time coming. The company has lacked focus and sought small revenue attracting sideshows (e.g. Market). While i agree with the changes in reducing offices, personnel, I still look forward to seeing what the actual strategy will be. I see only one thing that will keep me and other long term Premium customers satisfied in the long run. This will mean focus on the core product with a much more sophisticated data strategy. Examples which I see as important: - if I have files going back several years, why are the oldest ones indexed equally relative to my current work/ documents/ notes/ attachments - why is my entire Evernote resident on my hard drive - doesn't that contradict the entire point of cloud? - why doesn't EN make it easy for conservative folks to back up their EN - why not let me store my current EN work and sync it quickly - let me archive old EN, but don't make me go through hoops to export. Consider this simple use case. I want to be able to search for one item saved maybe 6 years ago. I don't want to import an entire EN back up to find it. At the same time I don't want to keep my entire EN in on gigantic file because I don't want to use the space on my hard drive, nor do I trust anyone to maintain an ever increasing database while still permitting rapid sync and access to my current work. I just want to search for that one item and then go back to my daily current EN routine.
  2. update on my comments about clipper and impact on web pages. It turns out that adblock plus was running unbeknownst to me in my testing. now that i run with only one extension running, i.e. EN web clipper, everything is normal again with super fast page loading. My bad.
  3. @jbignert ... i have re-installed and will get back to the forum. To be clear, since there are other confusing posts here, the issue was Safari delayed sites launching (old version is shadowed in background for a second before it launches) and followed by hanging (white screen and site never appears). Since i had installed copper I had no issue for two weeks. Now I will try again and see how it goes. Again I am the one with the fresh macbook pro with zero other extensions. Thank you for watching. Colin
  4. EN are ignoring this issue. I have a brand new Mac Book Pro running 10.9 mavericks. I have not installed anything new except for Office for Mac and Evernote. That makes my platform the ideal to highlight this issue. This is not a user issue. Its a very real Clipper compatibility issue. There have been several iTunes updates and maybe a couple of safari updates since I got my laptop in April. Gradually Safari exhibited slower and slower performance including more and more complete hangs on some sites. By hang I mean I can see the header of the page but zero of the page loads. Just white space. I tried the usual cache clearing etc, but did notice the forums mentioned extensions as a potential issue. My only extension was Clipper so I uninstalled. Safari was back to perfect performance. I reinstalled Clipper just in case there was a version issue. It was back to hangs immediately. Clipper is the issue. It is not being maintained to keep up with Apple updates. Come on EN. I am a long time (6 years) Premium user. It turns out now that I am missing it that Clipper is a large part of my EN experience. We had that issue at the beginning of the year when Phil had to get involved and bring focus back to the daily user and you did a great job upgrading older users with new servers, much improved syncing etc. Please don't think its over. Focus on user experience comes before extending into new markets. We are in this for the 100 year experience remember.
  5. Joe, this thread has been going for a while. EN have narrowed down to a bug in their load balancer, ie a network issue and involving a third party, not an EN issue. So I am going to hang in there while they resolve. As a work around, I have been loading large notes into google drive and setting EN desktop to automatically import that folder on my laptop. Hardly elegant but works for now. The issue is only an issue with large attachments in notes asfaik.
  6. Thanks Judd6149. You are correct - I only tested the lower resolutions but I confirm that sync still fails for actual size. This is a cheap workaround. Very disappointing. I also note that the 5.1.1 release notes only says 'bug fixes'. No specifics. This feels like a cover-up and no responsibility being taken. Not even full admission of the problem. This is the first ***** in the EN armour I have really seen.
  7. 5.1.1 released today fixes this sync bug. The snapshot feature, and loading an existing photo both work now and sync back. Thank you EN and a frustrating few weeks is over now.
  8. I just tweeted to Phil. Maybe we can get his attention. Either retweet me, or send your own. @plibin - Phil, are you aware of the ios sync issue-notes w/mages in V6. Its killing us. Poor EN support response. #evernote Prem member — Colin Henderson (@colinrhenderson) December 18, 2012 __ Member 2008, Premium
  9. Phil. It seems this problem is not understood at EN. Its not helpe by conflicting reports in this thread. Here is a specific scenario that I encounter since the new ios version. 1. take photo using snapshot. 2. sync fails with the 'unable to make http request error" 3. I change the title of the note to anything other than 'untitled snapshot ...' 4. sync works. It seems obvious to me that diagnosis should begin with this simple scenario, and the issue with the post title. I wish EN would take this seriously. A serious issue like this for a month is ridiculous. This is more important than EN Business. -- Premium user since 2008.
  10. I read this and also the thread mentioned. <http://discussion.ev...te-sync-error/> My diagnosis so far is connected to the snapshot function. Incidentally I am a seasoned user even though I have been a lurker here. When snapshot is used, its supposed to provide an opportunity to edit the note but it doesn't. It immediately syncs and does not like the note title "snapshot' or at least thats my diagnosis. so i only use the new note, add image until this is fixed. I am curious to hear if anyone is having success with the new snapshot feature.
  11. This was not an issue for me until the latest upgrade to V4.6. Now all joined notebooks are included in searches. I utilise tags for context and urgency as well as todo. So when I search todo:false for example it now includes all the example templates in the Evernote Holiday notebook that have lots of [] unchecked boxes. For now I unjoined all public notebooks, but thats not a long term solution, although it has speeded up my evernote syncing. It seems to me one solution would be a new parameters to restrict search to my notebooks only eg todo:false -joinednotebooks.
