  1. I've got ~10K notes, so you're managing 45K without issues gives me hope. Thank you for the tweak suggestions - I will try them and see how it goes. Beyond that, I may add an SSD to the list of upgrades my machine needs (I like this machine's screen size and Bang & Olafsen speakers, and since I'm on Windows 8, hopefully Microsoft won't force me into Windows 10 for a while yet). Cheers.
  2. I appreciate your understanding. I hoped I could do some things on my end without having to bug Support, they're busy enough as it is. But yeah, I may go that route if my current set up doesn't improve performance. Cheers.
  3. Re: disk, I've got a HDD, not SSD on an Asus laptop with 12GB RAM. I'm using v6.22.3.8816 (08816) Public (CE Build ce-62.6.10954). My EXB file is 6.13GB Re: rebuild time, after a quick "fix all notes", I clicked on "Optimize database", a progress bar appeared, and it took all day (from some time in the morning through till some time in the evening) to complete. Then Evernote was in not responding mode indefinitely...at some point after at least a half hour, I shut down the machine, rebooted, restarted Evernote, "not responding" was back like Jason Voorhees...shut it down again, restarted again...and now, it appears to be running crisply. Started faster than I've ever seen it start before. Now I'm trying to do a search. I start typing into the search field...not responding. I force close the app, try to start it again, now it won't even start. Previously, I would have to restart machine in order to restart Evernote, but I've since realized I can invoke the Task Manager and close the Evernote processes that were still running even though the app had been shut down - this allowed me to resart Evernote. One thing I'm now trying that appears to be helping (as in the last 20 minutes) ...I've turned off both Snippet View as well as Note Panel - there are no longer any images being served in my main list. Sucks that I'm paying for a service and can't enjoy its full functionality, but I need the stability.
  4. I've reinstalled my then current version searched activity logs for "errors" and "failures" (there were none. Not one, through over 140 pages of activity logs) upgraded to the latest version rebuilt the database (took nine hours. Yeah, nine of them). Yet still, after all of this, every time I touch Evernote for Windows, I'm banished to not responding hell. WTF? This thing is pretty much useless. WHY? Evernote for Android, no problems. Evernote web version in a browser, no problems. I would love to just stick with my phone app and the web version, while ripping Evernote for Windows off my machine and never, ever, trying to run it again. Ever. But there are tasks that can ONLY be done in a desktop app, like exporting notes/notebooks, encryption (such as it is), etc...and that is what is most frustrating. I'm beholden to using this piece of *****, but it just refuses to work for me. This is about the point when I should cue all the people who're going to say "works fine on my machine." And that's terrific, except I don't use your machine. This entire, ongoing lack of functionality is utterly depressing. What ELSE can I try to rectify this? Is there ANYTHING I can do?
  5. Hey Evernote, Removing the ability to set reminders in Evernote Web cannot be considered progress. Please restore this functionality.
  6. When using web browser on my laptop, there is a remarks field which is ideal for entering in lead content cleanly above the start of the clipped content. Adding it after clipping is a hot mess. Clipping on my smartphone is less fun because there's no field to include remarks. So the clipping goes into Evernote, then I open the note to add content, and it's a mess. Can we please have remarks added to the Clipper for Android? Pretty please? With sugar on top?
  7. Remarks are back in Chrome Web Clipper!
  8. I don't know if Evernote people reply in here, but I did get the above-mentioned tweet and the below attached email from Evernote, officially. Speaking of which, the below is a response to a trouble ticket I opened. Perhaps you should create a trouble ticket yourself and continue to keep this on the front burner, lest "as soon as possible" gets lost and it never gets addressed. I would also tweet - that puts the conversation out in public, which might pressure them from a different angle.
  9. THANK YOU! And, I see what my problem was. The explanation of what the setting does is not apparent in the menu until I mouse over the words that are there. I did not remember that the explanation for the option was hidden under the mouse-over, I was looking for an option that included the fuller explanation. At any rate, many thanks.
  10. So, while browsing through settings/options, I saw this option to only load notes that appeared in the current view. Given how slow and unstable my Evernote for Windows is, I thought perhaps this might speed things up a bit. It seems, however, that it does not, because, as I scroll, it has to load notes sequentially, and it also appears that, when searching for a note, all my notes are not loaded. I'm not sure if I'm understanding things right. Regardless, now I'm looking to restore to the default, to load all notes when Evernote for Windows opens...and I can't find where to do that. It's so annoying, does anyone know what I'm talking about and can guide me to fix this?
  11. Trying to add a comment at the top of a web clipping is a mess, the formatting is almost never clean, nor does the remove formatting thing work very well. It'd be extremely helpful to include the remarks field that was/will soon again be in the Chrome Web Clipper to Web Clipper for Android. Being able to annotate/comment on a clipping in real time while the thought is fresh is very helpful and increases the usefulness of the clipping specifically, and Evernote in general.
  12. Here's what @evernotehelps had to say yesterday...
  13. I just noticed mine is missing, too. Earlier this week I found that the "Remarks" field had gone missing from Chrome Web Clipper. WTF is going on?
  14. I was going to create a new post entitled "Why does Evernote for Windows suck so much?" but found some company for my misery in this thread. I HATE having to subject myself to the dog's breakfast that is Evernote for Windows. The only reason I have it at all is there are some necessary functions that are only present in the desktop version. Otherwise, it is not enjoyable to use at all, and frankly shows poorly on the outlook of Evernote altogether. Others are even less patient than me, already giving up and seeking alternate solutions - yep, it's that excruciating a user experience that all the wonderful things that Evernote offers yet is no consolation, is not worth the cruel and unusual punishment that is the Evernote for Windows experience. What I want to know is, is Evernote going to put up or shut up? Are they going to fix the Windows experience or scrap it? I wish they'd just pick one.
