  1. OK guys I'm up for posting a ticket, but how do you do it ? I can't find the ticketing "front end" ( I have created tickets - long ago - but via an email query!) And Why whenever I get to this topic via a link in a reply email does it regard me as a new user and ABSOLUTELY REFUSES to let me login insisting I need to create a new Account. Back to subject - does anyone think Evernote are going to really alter?? Clearly they do what they want and treat customers with disdain This thread is a classic example of their inability to accept that the customer IS ALWAYS RIGHT (even if they are not!) and that attitude means that sooner or later we will all go away or they will go bump!
  2. Hang on here........ Something has changed.. My particular gripe is a list of my pathetic attempts to loose weight, where I posted a number of "before" images in my "undies" and then a diary showing my daily weights, now obviously whenever I access the note I don't wish to see the "old me" nearly nude, especially if I'm using it in the office or the Pub! I added in my Gravatar image into the note, but really to make it bigger than a camera photo was a nonsense. so I kept having to open Evernote in private! Suddenly when I look today - having re-visited this forum subject due to a flurry of recent posts - I find my Gravatar is now being displayed, both on the PC I use Evernote on and on the web version that I normally use.... I don't have an explanation for this, does anyone else?
  3. Look for "Featured image" and an anal discussion about "biggest, smallest" - you won't believe it. I don't think Evernote will change this system anytime soon If they stick to their new Web Beta interface "cards" would seem pretty irrelevant anyway
  4. I'm with you MJM, the new google fanboy "boredom" styled interface make Evernote into a second rate word-processor. Where are my notes?, lists and tags. This "clean" interface is sterile with no information. Reminds me of Google Store, or Microsoft changing from Windows to a Closed Door, I know designers simply play follow the leader, but they really need to follow a leader who has practicality and effectiveness in their repertoire Not that I expect Evernote to listen to users on this issue as they don't on any other!
  5. Jennifer Lawrence ?? who is Jennifer Lawrence ?? My nude piccies are of Bill Gates, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and some guy called Obama something, or other, but don't worry Evernote will never find them cos I cant set them as "featured image"
  6. I'm with Yahenda on this point. I've been watching this topic for over a year, with debates about "largest, smallest sides" etc. how anal can you get? The issue here isn't complex; "set featured image", Wordpress can do it, Google+ can do it, FB can do it Twitter can do it, I can do it in an email, but EVERNOTE can't manage it?? Cumon guys you do unending updates for differences I cannot see, but something many customers want and no-one is going to argue against,? Use whatever algorithms you want, it's hugely unimportant, BUT let me override them to say "I want to use this image" Or do you really think so little of your customers?
  7. I have just been reading pages about this... quite unbelievable that Evernote should make such a mess up of something so simple as having a "Choose" featured image" - all Wordpress Blog posts have this it's very simple and if people don't choose one the program picks one, whether it uses some "largest, mines bigger than yours, tiniest" consideration I neither know nor care. I suspect the quote "You don't have to like it, but that's the way it is. (shrug)" from one of your evangelists is a very good indication of the Evernote attitude to it's customers and their requirements.
  8. Hi Looking Glass writing Really I think you will find the sticky notes download site is fine, (far better that the many so called Free Software "download sites" where we find people downloading even legitimate software like Malwarebytes etc, end up with an accompanying batch of conduit /lucky leap / Incredimail malware) But more importantly please tell me your not using AVG free - it's not worth the money you don't pay for it! The saying "there is no such thing as a free lunch" was originally coined about to AVG Free I understand. Sticky notes is useful, would be better if it had a little ability to format the text more than picking one font (Headings etc) but it is a good "notetaker" app it seems if you have a problem the developers keep an eye here, though it would be preferable that they declared some official contact method. Enjoy their app
  9. Hi I have closed and re-opened Sticky Notes and re-authorised the app which proceeded without error this time and completed a successful synchronise and has brought me up 5 notes - which are those from my evernote (my PC had 6, some different contents, but que sera). So thats the problem solved for the minute, (Regarding closedown of PC it happens as little as possible cos it takes ages and ages to do a re-start, so next time it becomes so gummed up or updates require I will let you know if its still a problem) On my home PC I use Evernote Web, and My Laptop too as we have a home and and a business account so its easier to use the webversion (Besides it has reminders and the Windows version doesn't!) It would be good if you gave some contact info on your website (even if only to post here and it will be picked up. Thanks for the help
  10. Hi dominikiweber I have already done the regedit prior to reading your message, when I restart my PC and fire up evernote sticky notes I am asked to re-activate the link to my account, I follow the process and enter the verification code and get an error pop-up "The remote server returned an error (400) Bad Request" I am using Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, and sticky notes Version 1.5.5 (Evernote has told me I last verified it sometime in May!) (and I see you are indeed joint developer!) Thanks
  11. I've got to agree with Grumpymonkey "Unfortunately no contact info exists for the developer of the Sticky Notes app. There appears to be no way to contact them. I'm a little annoyed that Evernote would allow an app to be listed in their Trunk applications but not require them to provide contact info." I am having problems with Stickynotes, in as much as the notes on My PC do not synchronise, and they show different information on the notes "On Screen" to the local Evernote copy. Beyond this I had stickyNotes installed on my Laptop, and both my PC and laptop had problems on close down having each time to forcibly end the app. I have uninstalled it on my laptop. Am about to try dominikweber's fix and will report back, anyone know any way of getting to the developer?
  12. I'm not sure if this is the same issue as I have but if I paste an image into a note (Using EN for Windows) it appears initally as a image, but at some point changes to a "link" as above, which is incomprehensible to my system. I have attached a copy of a note to illustrate this, I pasted the definition of "confusion marketing" into the note, then put in a HTTP reference to an article, the image then changed to that shown at the top of the note. Clicking on this link has no effect as windows doesn't know the file type and simply brings up a "select progam" window (to left of note), for illustration purposes I have again pasted the "Definition" into the note but shortly after the screenshot this changed to a similar "link" Now I can open these links if I correctly "guess" which program to open them with, but this seems to me not to constitute any sort of filing system, more like piling everything into a tub and having to sort through it?
  13. I can't believe all the arguments over semantics and algorithms, when the need is clear, there needs to be a way to choose the "featured image" Wordpress can do it, a 1001 other app(lications) so why not Evernote?. As a second choice you can use whatever selection you like, but Evernote, take note, the ability to select an image (if so wished) is clearly what I and many (most?) of your customers want, surely on that basis you should simply find a way to service this customer requirement (and soon) because giving your customers what they want is what your supposed to do? No doubt someone will dispute my logic?
  14. Yes - I've just loaded this on Win 7 and cannot find any instructions/guidance - how do I adjust font size, Can I adjust a snapshot "Canvas" to allow more annotation? etc
  15. I cannot find Evernote, or more importantly Skitch anywhere on the Metro Store, plenty of general links (Softronic etc), they in fact lead to Microsoft where nothing happens... I want to try skitch but it's pretty pointless on a phone screen so weve tried to find it to get it to work on our windows 8 pre-release Beta system. I have to say we have spent hours, but most of this is down to the appalling interface(s) of Windows 8, with nothing being findable and no explanations, really I suggest you guys program for existing Windows as Eight will likely be Microsoft's Armageddon
