  1. Smarter calculator? You are seriously underselling Android capabilities. Switching to another account set, as it now stands, is all about having internet capability and sufficient bandwidth, not processing power or memory. Besides, the simple fact that Android would readily handle the two accounts, if merged, blows away the whole argument anyway.
  2. My Android copies are mainly for field work. There is either no internet access of any kind, or it's simply too slow to use for anything more than email. We do not all live in a connected world.
  3. I have two different accounts I need to access on a regular basis. This is easy on Windows, but to switch between the two accounts on Android, I have to sign out of one, then sign in to the other. However, sign out removes all cached notes and offline notebooks. My two accounts have 9,000 [2.5 GB] and 7,000 [3.5 GB] notes, respectively. Even with a fast connection, the time to resync that much data on an account switch takes far too long to make this usable. In addition, there are other problems. Sharing isn't too bad when dealing with just a few notebooks and tags. However, there are serious deficiencies when more data and structure enters the picture. My two accounts have completely different attributes, each with a couple dozen stacks, dozens of notebooks, thousands of notes, and hundreds of tags, all with hierarchical structure. I've been experimenting with shared notebooks, using about 4,000 notes, and have observed the following. 1) All notebook and tag structure is lost by sharing. This in turn totally disrupts the structure of the account to which the notebooks are shared. Tags, especially, become unmanageable. Windows carries forward the tags from a joined notebook, but Android does not. Tag search becomes impossible for Android, as there are none, and difficult for Windows because of the lack of structure. The tag hierarchy cannot even be reproduced as Evernote for Windows does not permit the tags from joined notebooks to be repositioned. Although Android does separate out joined notebooks from the others, though still losing the structure of stacks, Windows does not, and the shared notebooks are co-mingled within the existing structure. 2) Since sharing transcends platforms, i.e., I cannot share for Android only, as it really isn't needed for Windows, all shared notebook content is physically added to the Windows database, effectively doubling the database size. This elongates synchronisation times and search times. 3) Of course, every time a new notebook is created in the account that shares the notebooks, it must be newly shared. Then, each Android device needs to set the notebook attribute to offline sync. All of these problems are not unique to using Android. The loss of hierarchical structure for notebooks and tags still causes significant problems for the Windows platform. I suspect this problem has not been generally understood, and therefore ignored. Perhaps, if other users would comment on this thread, the subject would get more attention, and thus get addressed. I have only looked at the implications regarding Windows and Android platforms, but other supported platforms may present similar problems. There may also be issues with regard to using the Evernote Business offering. Oh, the ticket is # 536445.
  4. Cool, I'll remember that. I wonder how it handles a note containing a composite of text, docs, pdfs, and jpgs. I've a number of notes like that. I've done some operations where I would do the export, then parse the html content to extract the info I wanted. It's messy, though.
  5. I'm using Win x64, have 10,000 notes,using about 4 GB of storage. My system has 12 GB of memory. I've noticed Evernote performance degrading for some time now as the amount of my Evernote content has increased. I've tried using a dedicated drive for the database, as well as moving it to a raid device. In both cases, minimal performance gains were achieved, if any. Quite often, I'll be updating of deleting a note, and the response delay will be as long as 90 seconds. These are not sync delays, and it appears that Evernote is doing massive updates to the database. monitoring shows lots of i/o to the database drive. I'm completely at loss to understand why. In disgust, I finally decided to try using an SSD. Prices are down now, and I got a 60 GB [ejffectively about 56GB] Kingston SSD from Amazon for about $60. I attached it to one of my drive trays with gaffer tape, and slid it into the rack.Took just a couple of minutes to do, using a small strip of cardboard on one edge of the drive to get the spacing right. Of course, one could just use a small drive enclosure and connect via USB. I then moved my Evernote DB to this drive, and, with all the extra space, relocated my paging space there as well. I formatted the drive with 32MB blocks, but don't know whether that's the best option. Would like to know the experience of anyone who is more knowledgeable about such. Relocating the paging space there is perhaps a mixed blessing, but I'll defer judgement for now. Now, Evernote performance is infinitely better. Response to updates and searches is very fast. The only lags that occur now are when doing the server sync, though that is much faster as well. Given my internet limitations, not much I can do about that, though resetting sync interval to one day would eliminate almost all of that as well. My laptop performance is still abysmal, but currently not using it much. It needs replacement, and I will definitely make sure the new one has a 256GB SSD drive. I've always been leery of using SSD drives because of the high cost, but this has proved to be a very affordable solution. Need to get another to put in my other desktop system.
  6. Reinstall won't help. I've had the same problem, with some offline notes accessible, while others are not. Usually they seem to be newer notes. This problem seems to go away after a number of syncs. Seems like, although sync says completed, in reality it is not with regard to offline notes, and somehow some content is not updated. I don't have a good handle on the problem, but it sure is a real headache when it happens, like on an airplane.
  7. For larger wide screen displays, search bar is right justified, with lots of dead space between it and everything else. See attachment. Would be better to left justify.
  8. Sounds like time to delete all files, plus the app, and rebuild from scratch. When something weird like this happens, i.e., should work but doesn't, it's my default action plan. Takes forever, overnight, at least, but less of a headache this way.
  9. Evernote 5 does not have a "Favorites" bar like Evernote 4. I use it to create a "Tags" dropdown list. Also for other things where I want quick reference, Easiest to just show this from an Evernote 4 screen snap. This is done by dragging "tags" to the Favorites bar. The loss of this functionality is enough to cause me to revert to Evernote 4, and stay there until it is implemented.
