  1. Same problem here. Worked for a day or two and just now i can't view any of my notes. Ridiculous. I spent last night and this morning taking chunks of notes & files out of Evernote as I'm not going to risk my data with Evernote or any app (such a laborious task!), but now i can't even take anything out.... This is real problem. I don't want to scaremonger but i think this problem highlights the danger of relying on an 'everything' app to manage your data. Ill be keeping all my data in native files on my hard drive from now on. Truly bye bye Evernote, it was good until 6.0.
  2. I understand you are helping with a suggestion to get Evernote back working but I have 50% of my notes in local folders and 50% synced. I don't want to have to think about uninstalling and re-installing. I was hoping that an app store update would be out by now.... ? Im 100% moving all my stuff out and just keeping everything local on my laptop in folders (tags is better) - that'll get backed up in several ways. Ill keep non personal pdfs & notes i need access to in dropbox.
  3. I have just had the same problem happen. I see the list of notes but i cannot view any of them. TERRIBLE. ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE TO HAVE A BUG LIKE THIS. I have most of my stuff in Evernote and its advertised as an everything / life app.... How i am i suppose to do my work today? This bug combined with the new context / advertising and i think it might be time to move away from Evernote. Maybe move away from all content storing apps - they eventually die or compromise their privacy values at some point... Anyway, back to BUG. This has to be fixed QUICK. I can see the size of the document in the evernote app so I'm hoping its just a visual glitz. I also had a problem yesterday where i couldn't see / edit the title of a page id clipped into Evernote. I love Evernote and store everything tagged in it for years. There is nothing better but this has brought home the risk of putting your data into an app... I've lost confidence. ---- Update : I can export the note out and view the note & attached pdf. I couldnt view the pdf via the browser but that maybe unrelated. Update : Other notes just become 'Untitled' randomly when i select them... FIX THIS QUICK! Im looking to move stuff out slowly now.. won't trust it again. Around 3400 notes
  4. I finally did it. Although i brought a new MacBook Pro instead of a clean installation so it forced me to move Evernote. I essentially did as outlined above by JMicheal. 0, Synced the MacBook Pro with Evernote (from mac app store) so all the synced/non local files were all in the app. Only missing local files. 1, Did a final sync and then closed Evernote app on ALL DEVICES. I noted the number of notes. 2, Copied from ~/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote on my Macbook Air (master database) on to a USB drive. 3, Copied from the USB drive overwriting the same container on my MacBook Pro. 4, It asked whether i wanted to overwrite some newer files on my MacBook Pro - i said yes. I think they where preference / system files so after the sync i got all the "Evernote Tour" prompts etc - don't know why as all of that had been done on the MacBook Air long ago. 5, Checked the number of notes and everything added up - 2300 notes. I did some test searches on both devices and the results matched. Ive been using Evernote today and everything seems to be working fine so at the moment I assume its worked. Id be surprised if it went bad - looks and works fine. Ill report back should it malfunction. Hope this helps someone. And thanks again JMicheal - your outline was a very helpful.
  5. Thanks for taking to the time to outline this. It looks pretty good. I also wish Evernote would provide an official article. At the moment this Evernote restore is the only thing stopping me doing a fresh install - i rely on evernote a lot. As soon i do the install ill report back with my experience following your recommendations. Thanks again.
  6. Please search the board on backup/restore for the Mac client. I did - no obvious clear answer - hence the post. Thanks for the help.
  7. I am planning to do a clean installation of mavericks on my macbook and i want some advice on how best to restore my evernote database in the new installation. I realise the sync notes will restore automatically but i have as many notes that are in a local folders ie never synced. I need the database to come back exactly as it is - all tags etc etc etc. To lose all that would be ....... Bad. Any advice would be appreciated and any other things i should been in mind. Thanks.
  8. I was wondering and hoping that the note encryption aesthetics are due to be improved? I think the way its implemented could be better, and the way it looks could definitely be improved. The line thin box around the text is not a great look - im sure you guys can improved this massively..... I this can request can be put on a list that would be appreciated.
  9. When i select a part of the web page then press the button my selection gets unselected and it defaults to picking its own part of the web page without any option to change... is this how it works?
  10. Can anyone help me with this? Or provide a link with some info on how the clipper works ie why does it strip the framework out of some pages and not others? Does it by default strip anything? Or is it something, an extension or adblocker, have installed that is doing it? Thanks.
  11. Im using the context menu (prob same with safari extension button). The problem is that some pages are clipped in full and the formatting etc is as required/expected - it is a 'copy' of the webpage - great! Other times the SAME page comes back with formatting missing, alignment off etc etc - looks crappy. I think its to do with plugins, java or flash etc - which is ok and im happy to tweak stuff - but HOW can i get it to format it CORRECTLY everytime. I was in coffee shop clipping pages to evernote and they were clipping perfectly. Then i get home and the same/similiar pages start messing up when clipped in full. I remember blocking something with Little Snitch at the coffee shop that probably helped get the format right but i didnt see what it was and can't find what it was in Little Snitch now to turn it off again. Anyone know why this is? Thanks for help.
  12. If you go into your gmail settings on the web you can add an email to forward too - your evernote email - and get all or some emails sent to your evernote. I have various newsletters get sent to directly to Evernote so i can keep email clean for 'proper' emails and deal with newsletter. The filter can be set to delete or archive or marked as read etc the original email - lots of options to tweak per filter. And in mac Mail if you sign in on the web or in app preferences you can get emails forwarded to Evernote the same way.
  13. You can use a mac app called Hazel (great app!) to watch folders and import into Evernote. The app does many other things - you just set up rules. http://www.noodlesoft.com/hazel.php
  14. Im happy with the Lion look. Atleast keep this as the default if there are thoughts to introduce colour.
