  1. Yes, of course I can do this and thank you for suggesting it. I jus really find it offensive to be getting sync ERRORS. It seems reckless in terms of data integrity. The just isn't any reason to subject costumers to this kind of thing really... Just bad policy.
  2. It is relevant though. My issue is that old notes over 50MB are now giving me sync errors. I was saying that this shouldn't be because this is data that I have ALREADY uploaded to the cloud when I was a premium member and was well within my monthly allowance. Dave and other members seem to be telling me that the reason I'm getting this error is because EN re-uploads the entire note even if all I do is add a text character and hence I am now running against this limit of 50MB because I am taxing the servers for a service I am not paying for. But clearly your experiment shows that is doesn't re-upload the entire content of the note. That was my point... Such a modification would only take up a tiny amount of my monthly allowance, no matter the seize of the note. HENCE, it is arbitrary that I am getting this sync error on these notes since I am not asking EN to add large quantities of data to its cloud, I'm mostly accessing data that was already uploaded to its cloud years ago under a premium subscription.... The experiment you made (thank you) just goes to show that there is no practical reason for these sync errors other than to force me to re-subscribe to premium... My old notes aren't somehow taxing Evernote's servers ... I'm not sure if you get my point?
  3. Where are you getting this from? That was not my understanding. Each month we get an upload "allowance" no? Say I uploaded a note a that is 100MB last month, this month my allowance is reset. If I view the note I created last month and add one word of text to it, you're saying that this will then subtract 100MB of uploads to this month? With this reasoning, I would reach my monthly max upload by working on the same 100MB note for a couple hours since it would continually be syncing to the cloud.... This makes no sense
  4. Doesn't this seem just idiotic?
  5. Are you sure about this? I highly doubt that every time I made a tiny change in a note, like add a word, the entire content of the note is re-uplouaded o the cloud. This would just be bad engineering... Also EN DOES keep version history... and I'm guessing they aren't saving the content of each version as duplicate data. That would again be very inefficient.. Where are you getting this information? With this reasoning, I would reach my monthly max upload by working on the same 100MB note for a couple hours since it would continually be syncing to the cloud....
  6. Thank you. I'm not debating the technicalities here but rather this ridiculous design/business strategy that purposely creates sync errors (that is what I'm getting a sync ERROR) because of note seize on notes OF WHICH DATA I UPLOADED AS A PREMIUM USER; Shouldn't those notes be allowed to continue to sync forever? These uploads were well within my monthly allowance as a premium member. I paid for this upload allowance I recall very clearly Evernote asking me to put everything in it as a forever database for my digital life. THIS WAS THEIR SALES PITCH. If you do this you have a responsibility towards your costumers to treat the data they entrust in your service with care and respect. You need to provide stability and reliability. There is no argument in favour of this "now your old notes won't sync anymore" move. I am STILL a paying costumer. Not a good look...
  7. Thanks. I did contact support also. What is the use of a note that you cannot edit. I think it "edits" it just by viewing it. I mean the second you even lick on anything in it it's being "edited". And so it ill stop syncing . I mean seriously this is so offensive a design/business strategy really makes you wonder about the management of this company.
  8. I would love to be contacted by an EN employee about this : I'm experiencing a very annoying issue. I have been an Evernote customer for almost 10 years. I had the premium account for most of this time when that was your standard paying plan. Recently you guys changed your plans and of a sudden, the same premium plan was costing a lot more. Since I only upload a tiny amount of data each month, mostly text, when you wrote me to tell me my subscription was changing I went with the PLUS subscription. Here's the problem... Now your desktop app is refusing to sync certain notes that I created years ago because they are over 50MB. So I keep getting sync issues every time I want to view one of these old notes. This is absolutely unacceptable... This is data that I uploaded as a premium member. I have already paid for them. They shouldn't stop syncing because I'm a PLUS member now. It's also a very poor way to treat long standing paying costumers. I'm paying as much as I used to but for a ***** service. I'm extremely annoyed. I doubt I upload in average more than 1MB a month. I was happy to pay for the premium service for all those years. To be suddenly ripped off and sold a ***** plan that doesn't sync at the same price as my old premium plan is such a poor way to treat long standing existing costumers... Please fix this.
  9. Sorry but How do such huge bugs make it to the general release ? As soon as I updated my notes were riddled with rendering errors. not small things. Isn't that what the betas are supposed to be for?
  10. This guy pops in to tell us to use this thread and upvote, clearly the EN community cares a great deal about this, yet the EN staff is never heard from again on the issue... Classic EN. Just can't listen to their users to save their lives, it's exasperating.
  11. I have been thinking the same thing for at least 5 years.... They supposedly give us this generous upload limit when you get premium, which I have had for 5 years, but really they KNOW you really can't use any of it if you have the desktop app installed. In 2017 it's getting pretty irritating. I'v started uploading most things to google drive now because of this. NOT COOL EVERNOTE. I really have to say, I never had such a love-hate relationship with any other product. On the one hand I am rooting for them because I love the app and use it a lot, but it seems like they are intent on not listening to their costumers which is infuriating and really dumb.
  12. Yes, but just the fact that there are sync issues or that the editor is buggy is really problematic for me as this is the baseline usability of the app and also pretty much its core function : put stuff in, sync it to the cloud and retrieve it later... My point is that it makes no sense for the staff at EN to be working on anything else if they can't get this to work properly... Reminders? haha interesting, . I use them as a way to pin things to the top of my notes but never actually set them to specific times.
  13. What I am saying is: this seems like a software problem that can be easily fixed.
  14. What is Instant sync? the most frequent option I have on mac OS is every 5 minutes! ...
  15. Also, since I'm at it... and in case anyone is paying attention...Have you guys not been paying attention to the press coverage you have been getting? It's pretty much just been intensely negative for years. You changed management... people were hoping you guys would try to listen to feedback but its been a long time and still the same tone deafness... Honestly , the only reason I am still using (and paying) for the app is because I WANT it to work, because I have so much data tied to the app and have no desire to switch. But I wished you guys would listen, it's beginning to feel like you don't care because you've figured out that longtime users are unlikely to switch because they have a lot invested in the app so you can forget about them and focus on trying to take over the corporate world. That's really insulting and not the kind of relationship I want to have with a company I entrust with my "digital brain'. Wake up!
