  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. 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 along. Side saddles were no longer a problem to solve because saddles - and the horse as primary transportation - just went away. The conversation about suing an owner will not be a problem when "ownership" goes away. The world is not required to conform to the convenience of litigation. How to litigate is a problem that may likely just go away. Or, let's consider any other mass transit option where individual riders do not own them - airlines, trains, city buses and subways. When something happens there, what do we do? We sue an airline, or a rail operator. Or the city transit authority. We already live in that world, and "who do we sue" is not some sort of hindrance to the use of any of these forms of transit. I could expand further on this, but, just think about it.
  8. Cool, thx. I can see now I've been sharing content wrong! Good to know. I can now go and share properly/better.
  9. 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.
  10. 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. Saying "welcome back (to Evernote)" hijacks focus from the conversation to Evernote, distracts from the conversation at hand, and makes Evernote look the exact opposite of relevant. It comes across as needy, insecure, self-aggrandizing... If the note title is there, and people can see that the link is relevant to the conversation in which they are engaged, they're more inclined to click on it to read what content is at the other end. And, since I've saved this note in a published, openly-shared notebook, they should be able to read the note on a free, read-only, web-version of Evernote, without having to download and install the app, which interrupts/disrupts/distracts from the conversation flow. The easier it is to share an Evernote note with someone with no obligation, the more exposure people can have to Evernote, and the more opportunity there is for someone to interact with Evernote and discover they might want it for themselves. Please fix this.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
