  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, resta
  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, wh
  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. Not sure how far into that conversation we should be having here on the Evernote forum, but one thing that is really important to appreciate is that the future is not beholden to the problems of today or, put another way, problems today go away when standards change tomorrow. So, for example, I'm sure there was a time when saddles were a real problem for women trying to ride side-saddle...but, if there were too few women to buy saddles, saddle makers likely did not want to devote the time to creating a new configuration for a market not large enough to make money. Then cars came alo
  9. Cool, thx. I can see now I've been sharing content wrong! Good to know. I can now go and share properly/better.
  10. You're right, I used the wrong (internal) link. The correct (external, sharing) link is https://www.evernote.com/shard/s90/sh/d4eb08bf-ceb3-410b-b313-fe9039d17102/9fe0f9f7344d29d542773343fdcc317b And, I've confirmed that using the correct link does present the note title. If you could please confirm you can access this note, I'd appreciate your help. Thanks again. Cheers.
  11. Here's a link to a note that's in a public notebook I curate called "The Iceberg": This is how Big Oil will die – NewCo Shift When I share it in Facebook, the image attached is what people see. This is so not cool. It does not show the title of the note, and that note title is what would helps someone clearly see the relevance of the link to whatever conversation they were engaging. It shows "Welcome back". To whom is it saying this? What if the person has never used Evernote before? It's off-putting, to say the least. Here's the thing: the link is not about Evernote.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
