  1. Really? I don’t have a Mac - you mean on Apple Evernote has a file for every note?! Seems awfully wasteful of space. Thanks, Jim
  2. Duplicate File Finder can find files, not notes. The notes are all contained within one file - the Evernote database. Jim
  3. I don’t know, Gaz... Evernote is the only notes program I have found that has such a problem. And I own 11 different note-taking programs, though only four are presently installed. Why don’t other note-takers encounter the issues you mention? Thanks! Jim
  4. Matt, I understand that Evernote thinks this is a valid requirement. I disagree, and as I posted previously I believe that email confirmation could reasonably be required upon initial registration and then again only if the user fails to respond to an important email from Evernote. However a standing, periodic confirmation requirement is unnecessary. No other software that I've used in the more than 40 years I've used it required such repetitious confirmations. (Excluding, of course, Microsoft's Genuine Windows checks, which at least were done automatically in the background). Thank you, Jim
  5. No, these confirmation annoyances don’t come via email. They are modal pop-up dialogs. And according to the "design team members" (via the support tech who responded to my similar inquiry on a support ticket), the email confirmations are required every six months. If you don’t confirm you will see that pop-up daily - sometimes many times daily - until you confirm it... again. I don’t see such requirements in any other software application I own and cannot fathom why Evernote requires this on a regular ongoing basis. Once upon registration is fine, or if a user is not replying to emails sent to them that require a response. Otherwise there is no valid reason to have to constantly reconfirm your address. Does Evernote sell our addresses? I know that confirmed addresses are more valuable than unconfirmed. Jim
  6. Wow! Picture definitely IS worth a thousand words, jb. Truly sad... Jim
  7. StBU6, that's a lot of actions to do for each note! There are much shorter workarounds posted earlier in this thread. Jim
  8. Gaz, Nothingt to do with "spoofed locations". See this web page on the Motorola site: https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/answers/prod_answer_detail/a_id/109134/p/1449,9582 Jim
  9. I just had a similar problem in that I have always used a username for Evernote (for 12 years now), but the login screen on my Android rejected it and insisted on an email address. Now I guessed that there is probably an email address associated with my account - the one Evernote corresponds with me on. But had no idea which address it was, and not being near my computer there wasn’t any way to find out. Why won't it accept our usernames? If this is the case then why not ban usernames and make everyone go with email addresses? BTW the problem turns out to be moot anyway; since E-note won't allow saving data to SD cards I had to uninstall immediately. Putting it all on my phone's internal storage would stop everything cold. (Sadly, my phone has Android 6 which allows me to designate my SD card as internal storage and it's all encrypted, so E-note wouldn’t have any more security fears. But, nah... that would be logical!) Jim
  10. Agreed. I just removed Evernote from my new Moto X Pure Edition. It has Android 6 (Marshmellow, for those who only recognize Google's goofy candy-related names!), and this version allows the SD card to be encrypted and considered as internal storage. However they still permit developers who insist on keeping their data off SD cards to do so. So even though I am able to save most of my apps' data on the card I can't with Evernote. So I had to remove it. Sad and unfortunate, really, that they are so far behind the curve with Android. Jim
  11. As far as I'm concerned, Evernote's handling of the subscription renewal process has changed for the worse. I was a premium subscriber ever since they started their subscription model, and an Evernote user since 2004 - I was an original beta member back in October 2004. Yet last week Evernote canceled my premium subscription and there is no way to contact anyone to even try to get it straightened out. Apparently when Evernote submitted the renewal charge to my AMEX account, AMEX held payment and called me to authenticate the charge. The AMEX rep told me that there has been a relatively high number of fraudulent charges reported lately on Evernote charges, so they were confirming charges from them with the members. I approved the charge immediately and the AMEX rep said he was submitting payment right away. But it was rejected by Evernote. It seems that when any such hold is made against a charge they immediately just cancel the premium account and won't accept any more payments from the account number, which is ludicrous. All my attempts to contact Evernote to get this fixed have failed - since I am now no longer a premium user I cannot contact Evernote. Someone here suggested that I contact the Evernote Twitter rep, so I did. I received a reply stating that he couldn't respond to Twitter messages on that account and asked me to use a different Evernote Twitter account. I did and sent all the info to him via Twitter DM. I never received a reply after that. Sooo, I have exported all of my Evernote notebooks and I'm no longer using Evernote. Since they offer no possible way to resolve billing issues at all there is no more that I can do to remedy this problem. So beware - there is no support at all to resolve billing issues because they jump way too fast canceling your premium account and they won't accept any requests from you as a newly kicked "free" account. Thank you. Jim
  12. Same problem here. Evernote user since the original beta in 2004, and a paid premium subscriber since they started the subscription model. Apparently today they submitted a charge for my annual premium payment and American Express suspected it was a fraudulent charge. American Express called me and I approved the charge but it was too late. Evernote had already downgraded me to a free account! And of course since it is a free account I cannot submit a support ticket to get this fixed. When I try to view my account to see if there is anything I can do from there, it just redirects me to the page where brand new subscribers apply. This is maddening. If anyone here can, please flag my post also for someone in Evernote to contact me or at least look into the situation. Thank you, Jim
  13. DyNama, Not that I wish to disabuse you of any hope for a fix, but you can see how long this thread has been going, so I will. They haven't done anything to even acknowledge the issue, let alone do anything to cure it. (BTW, some moderators have expressed concern, but nothing at all from the Evernote "team" on the problem.) Just don’t consider Evernote a program to keep any nice-looking notes. You are better off storing such notes in another program. Use Evernote for the "uglies". Jim
  14. I must disagree, Gazumped. Many, if not most, of my installed programs - on Windows 7 - have various "skins" available, which allow for changing background colors, font sizes & colors, and the like. Many such skins affect scroll bars too. It is certainly not unheard of, and I can't imagine it would affect functionality. Of course it would affect programming time, adding to it without adding users or revenue... Which most likely is the issue with Evernote. That's my guess, anyway. Jim
  15. Opposite problem here - I have three lines for the clipper in my Firefox context menu and I don’t want them there at all! I'm happy to use the icon on the bookmarks toolbar. I hate when my context menu gets so cluttered with options for every extension; soon the full context menu can't even fit on the page! Anyway to remove those items from the context menu? I have an editor for the menu but the Evernote Clipper items are grayed-out so I can't remove them there. Thank you. Jim
