  1. No, but I think I understand better what's going on now. I notice that my Windows desktop version syncs whenever I do any of the following: (i) clip something using the web clipper; (ii) create a new note using my phone; (iii) create a new note using the web client. I guess that sending an email to EN will do the same thing. So, even though I have UNticked all the sync options on my Windows client, it still syncs whenever any of the above actions are taken. I'm not sure if this is the expected behaviour or not, but it's not what I would expect, and it's certainly not the way it used to work prior to this latest release.
  2. Hi gazumped, thanks for your interest. The sync does NOT happen at start up or when closing (as far as I can tell without doing more rigorous testing), but sometime in between. Not sure if it's at regular periods or random, since it happens when I'm not paying attention; I'll only notice that it has synced when I go back to Evernote, which could be half a day after I last used it.
  3. I have unticked all of the options on the "Synchronization" panel, because I like to synchronize manually according to my own schedule. But this new version still syncs without me doing anything. Looks like a bug? Is there a fix?
  4. Inspired by the last few posts, I have fixed my problem with the following very easy procedure: Exit from Evernote. Rename the Evernote directory. Create a new (and empty) Evernote directory. Create a "Databases" directory in the new Evernote directory. Copy the old username.exb file from the old (now renamed) location to the new "Databases" directory. Restart Evernote. That's it - it worked for me, Evernote now starts up and shuts down real fast. No need to download everything again from the servers, no need to export and re-import private notes. Quick and easy!
  5. I am getting the "not responding" thing whenever I pull up a note with a PDF file and I try to scroll the PDF document. Takes about a minute to become responsive again. I'm using version on a Windows 8.1 system. I'm also getting the extremely slow startup and shutdown problems, this has been happening for maybe a month or so. Very annoying.
  6. This problem has just cropped up for me. I'm using Evernote version on Windows 8.1. I have a small notebook called "Templates" which contains, surprisingly, template notes. Today, for the first time, all four notes in this notebook started displaying the text "Last edited by <my name> and shared publicly with others". These notes have NOT been shared at any time. They do NOT appear in a search for "sharedate:*". If I right-click, there is NO option to stop sharing them. After syncing, the message at the top changes to simply "Shared publicly with others".
  7. can't empty trash

  8. I searched for "Your passphrase will not be transmitted to the server." and saw a few results (but not all, by any means) which referenced Evernote. None of the results I looked at referenced Pocket, leading me to think that the problem was on Evernote's side, rather than Pocket's.
  9. Yes, I know it's public. It does seem to be connected with Evernote in some way, for example, see this page: http://teacherstech.net/?p=9732. A Google search reveals several instances like this.
  10. I used to be able to share an Evernote note (Windows client, right-click, Share -> Copy Note URL To Clipboard), paste its URL into a (Chrome) browser window, and then use the "Save To Pocket" extension to save the note in Pocket for reading later. Now, for some reason, this doesn't work. In Pocket I get a new item with the correct heading, but with the following body text: Does anyone have any idea what is going wrong here, and how to get around it?
  11. Note that I am using the Windows client version ... are you using something different? Maybe there's some inconsistency between clients? I just tested on the web client and it works for me, even with the "notebook:" specifier at the end of the search string!
  12. Here is a search grammar document: http://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php Cheers, catbert.
  13. Hmmm, this seems to work for me: notebook:Main any: created:day updated:daybut it doesn't work if the "notebook" specifier appears after the "any:". Let us know if that helps!
  14. Hi dbvirago, My workaround suggested in post #15 above works for me (Windows client any: created:day updated:dayThis will give you anything created or updated today. I keep this as a saved search on the Favorites bar. (I actually use "day-1" rather than "day" but that's obviously a personal choice.)
