  1. I'd rather see Evernote be more open about their security - and follow in the footsteps of Dropbox, Google, Twitter, and others by encrypting data center links, implementing PFS, etc — and communicating publicly about it. Here's my reasoning on this: Internet companies rely solely on trust - if people don't trust you, they won't give you their data.Trust can only be built through transparency, and therefore, communicating about HOW you intend to protect your users' data. Re: your point that Google and others "aren't allowed to communicate on government spying" - it's quite the contrary. They actually wrote an open letter to President Obama and Congress: "We understand that governments have a duty to protect their citizens. But this summer’s revelations highlighted the urgent need to reform government surveillance practices worldwide. The balance in many countries has tipped too far in favor of the state and away from the rights of the individual — rights that are enshrined in our Constitution. This undermines the freedoms we all cherish. It’s time for a change." It's the "probably" that doesn't make me comfortable. If Evernote were more open about this, there would be no need to blindly trust their savviness. We know they have used MD5 to hash passwords in the past, and there is no evidence that this isn't still the case. In the meantime, MD5's been considered "cryptographically broken and unsuitable for further use" since 2010. So much for "savvy".
  2. What are you talking about? Their CEO, Phil Libin, has promised they were working on precisely this (notebook-level encryption), and planned to release it before the end of the year or shortly afterwards. From the Evernote Podcast episode 40, from October 30th, around 51 minutes in: "We actually got a super cool, uh, we're really really beefing up how we do client-side encryption across the board […] it's something we are hard at work now across multiple clients."
  3. Hallo Olli! Thanks fo the reply.This seems to be a feature of the Windows version. The Mac version can only import ENEX files, and doesn't accept HTML files. Thankfully, I checked my export-folder this morning and found a ton of duplicates, so I deleted them with Gemini. Then I was left with only ~200 files+attachments to import manually. Still a pain, but it went much faster than I expected, and everything is in Evernote now. Thanks again for the help, very much appreciated. aefla.
  4. Hey, Long story short, I exported by whole Evernote library as HTML files a few months ago (I know, should have used ENEX). Most of my notes had attachments, so I also have corresponding .resources folders along with the HTML files. Is there an easy way to import all of those back into Evernote, along with the attachments? Currently, I have to drag HTML files one-by-one, open the note, drag the contents of the .resources folder to the note, and rince&repeat. As my folder contains many hundreds of notes, this would literally take me days. Anyone know of any AppleScripts or web services that could help?
  5. Dropbox seems to be having similar problems with the new file format. If I upload a ".pages" document, and try re-downloading it, I end up with a ".pages.zip" file, so this isn't limited to Evernote. I hope there is a workaround. This is making Evernote pretty hard to use for my school docs.
  6. Reassuring??? There is nothing new here. These are the same basic statements Libin has been putting out for as long as I can remember. As my mother used to say, "The path to Hell is paved with good intentions." Words are nice, but it is actions that count. I'll be reassured when Evernote offers encryption on a Notebook basis. Maybe. I'm relatively new to Evernote, so this is the first time I heard him say these things. I agree on words vs actions though. This (passwords stored in MD5) and this (use of RC2 for encryption) are making me uneasy about storing anything sensitive in Evernote, but it's good to see Phil say he's working on it. Still not there, but hopefully they'll deliver.
  7. Some news on this subject: Phil Libin, Evernote CEO, was at the Dublin Web Summit on November 1st, and made two points which I think are important: 1) Evernote is very serious about protecting their users' data. He gives no details, though. 2) He is against excessive surveillance, which he feels undermines the public's trust in tech corporations and the cloud. It is unclear whether he plans on lobbying against this alongside Google and others, but he supports the initiative. These points are pretty reassuring regarding Evernote's commitment to user privacy. Second, from the Evernote Podcast episode 40, from October 30th, around 51 minutes in: "We actually got a super cool, uh, we're really really beefing up how we do client-side encryption across the board […] it's something we are hard at work now across multiple clients." Still no ETA, other than "soon".
  8. Hey GM, I think you may be right here. Even though Evernote's business model doesn't depend on advertising/tracking (which is good for us!), they aren't immune from unreasonable government requests. I found an article that explains this quite clearly: If the government wants something, they'll get it. I love Evernote, but I think that the Uplink motto "Trust is a weakness" applies here.
  9. Hi! You're right about the keyboard shortcut. I was confusing the two options. Here are all the details: OS X 10.8.4 Evernote 5.2.0 (401495) direct download Also, link to video showing the issue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0loM6xDzPMc
  10. [bUG] Opening a note in a new window changes its Updated Date Steps to reproduce: If open, quit the Evernote app. Reopen the Evernote app. Open a note in a new window (alt+cmd+N). The note's updated date changes to the current date. Even worse, it also happens when using spotlight: If open, quit the Evernote app. Reopen the Evernote app. Search for a note in Spotlight. Press the Enter key to open the note. The note's updated date changes to the current date. Weirdly enough, for this bug to occur again, you have to quit and relaunch Evernote. I rely on created dates and updated dates to know what notes I need to review and work on, so this is pretty inconvenient. Should I open a support ticket? Thanks!
  11. When you go to the store, I'd suggest you pay attention to the mini's display quality. After buying the Mini, I was very disappointed by how bad the screen is (bad contrast, colors are off). It also has a pretty low resolution, bad if you plan on working with text a lot (reading or writing). The new iPad mini (Retina) should get released around October. If I were you, I'd wait for that, or buy a full-sized iPad (with much better screen quality).
  12. I have previously filed a bug report on this. It seems to happen if an iWork document has been saved in iCloud first. Indeed.An iWork document can be saved either as a 'package' or as a single 'file' (the default is 'file'). iCloud can only save docs as 'packages', while Evernote only allows 'files'. AFAIK, an existing document can't be converted from a 'package' to a 'file'. You'll have to create a new doc and use copy/paste. I wish the Evernote app's error message was clearer.
  13. Or, even better, you can write it down in your Evernote Moleskine notebook
  14. Hello fellow Evernote users, I found a bug in Evernote 5.0.7 (latest version, downloaded from Mac App Store). First, when I export a note (that contains images) to HTML format, I end up with the note contents in an HTML file, and the image resources in a separate folder with a ".resources" extension. Everything fine, expected behavior. But then, when I try to import this note back into Evernote (by dragging the HTML file to the Evernote icon in the Dock), it only imports the note contents (contained in the HTML file) without the images (those in the separate .resources folder). IIRC, this bug does not occur on the version of Evernote (5.0.7) downloaded from your website: the HTML and the images all get imported properly at once. (is that an issue with sandboxing on the App Store version?) Thank you very much, Tom.
  15. Hey, I just encountered a potentially "dangerous" bug (10.8.2, latest Evernote version downloaded from your website) Each time I open the Evernote app, the menubar Helper disappears for a second and then reappears (looks like it quits and relaunches). This means that if you type something in Quick Note (without saving it), then launch the Evernote app, you loose anything you entered into QuickNote. I hope this bugreport can help, Tom.
  16. Quick Note works for me on the latest Evernote version downloaded from your website. It does not work on the Mac App Store version.
