  1. I was able to identify the behaviour on my Mac. When does it not work: By default, Ctrl + Cmd + M does not work. Restarting Evernote, nor restarting the computer do not solve the problem. When does it work: Click on Note in the menu bar once, no need to click any menu items, the keyboard shortcut works from here on. Continues to work after an Evernote restart. Stops working after a Mac reboot.
  2. I just learned this very useful keyboard shortcut, but I am dismayed that it does not work most of the time. Mac OSX 10.9.1 Evernote 5.4.4
  3. 10Mbps is by no means modest. . Where I am ( Shanghai, China), my broadband subscription is 4Mbps. With Evernote, the best sustained download I have seen is 300KB/s, the worst 20KB/s. Mostly I see around 90 KB/s. ( sorry about the change of unit). While this rate is no problem for day to day Evernote sync, a complete download of the database is very painful for me... Victor I see no reason for it to take over a day to download 6GB. Let's look at the math: EN DB = 6 GB x (1024 MB/GB) x (8 bits/byte) = 49,152 megabits D/L Speed = 10 megabits/sec (Mbps) D/L Time = (EN DB) / (D/L Speed) = 49,152/10 = 4,915.2 sec / (60 sec/min) = 81.92 min So, assuming a very modest broadband D/L speed of 10Mbps, it would take only 82 minutes to download 6 GB. (I routinely get > 20 Mbps D/L speed) This, of course, is ONLY the download time, so we must allow some time for processing on both ends. I'm not sure how much time this would be, but I can't believe it should take more than the time to download, so add another 82 minutes. That gives us a total of 164 minutes, or about 2.7 hours, for the download to complete and the EN client to be ready to use. So, how does 2.7 hours turn into more than 24 hours to download the 6 GB EN DB?
  4. Got an email from Evernote technical support with the following instruction. We believe that reinstalling the latest Mac version may address the issue that you reported. Please perform the following steps: <img alt="" /><img alt="" /> Quit Evernote from the elephant icon in the Menu Bar Drag the Evernote application to the system Trash Reboot your Mac Download and install the latest version of the Mac client: http://www.evernote.com/about/download/get.php?file=EvernoteMac When you open the download, make sure to drag the Evernote icon into the Applications folder instead of running it from within the installer package. Eject the disk image and delete the installer file before you run Evernote. Victor
  5. So true. Evernote is one of those apps that the PC version is a lot better than the Mac version. I think the saving grace is Mac's built-in PDF functions. Victor
  6. Yes, ugh... I have been using the new Mac client since the day it was launched, I think May 9. I have been in love with Evernote until this happened... I filed a ticket. I removed Evernote from my Mac, but none of the associated files (using App Zapper). I found an old version of Evernote installation file on my Mac, and reinstalled. Not sure what version it is as I am still stuck at the "Performing Initial Sync" window with 520+MB to download... Imagine what the pain if I had gig's data to re-sync. Well, at lease all the data on the server are stil there... fingers crossed... Victor
  7. Hi, all, I do not know what happened just now, but my Evernote for Mac suddenly kicked me out, and asked me to log back in. As soon as I logged back in, it said it was initializing for using for the 1st time. Then ALL my notes were GONE! I tried to sync with the server, it quickly downloaded all the tags, but no notes have been downloaded and yet. And it kept on saying: Sync failure: unexpected transfer error Synchronization failed because of an unexpected data transfer error with the Evernote servers. If the problem persists, please contact Evernote technical support. I use the latest version Version 3.1.0 (246062). Just verified the data on the server are still intact... Help! Victor
  8. Problem solved! Here goes (I am using a Mac for this). 1. Go to your WordPress dashboard, under Settings->Reading, set " Syndication feeds show the most recent " to 1000. (I had it set at 7 before. Set this number to a number larger than your current total posts). 2. Download NetNewWire and add your blog's feed. 3. Download the scripts at http://veritrope.com...rt-applescript/ and http://veritrope.com...nd-applescript/ 4. install and run the batch script Voila! Evernote is now working very hard on the 495 notes! My blog is very much a photograph blog, I am afraid I will have to pay $5 to Evernote this month for running over the 1G/month limit... Victor
  9. So I am trying this. 1. I went to my WordPress dashboard, under Settings->Reading, I set " Syndication feeds show the most recent " to 1000. (I had it set at 7 before). 2. I went to http://www.feedmyinbox.com and set up sending the feed from my blog to my Evernote e-mail address Not sure when the feed will be delivered, and I hope it will work. Already when I browsed http://dashu-huahua.com/feed, there is a huge text/html file been generated. And when I added the feed in Google reader, a list of 25 feeds showed up... fingers crossed! Victor
  10. Thanks, GrumpyMonkey, Just gave sitesucker a try, it did not work the way I intended. I am hoping to see the blog posts imported into Evernote as if they came from an RSS feed, not a HTML file that Evernote does not render. Victor
  11. Greeting! I have a Wordpress-based family blog with 495 posts at http://dashu-huahua.com/ I would like to archive my past posts in Evernote. Is there a quick, easy and automatic way of doing this? BTW, I have already set up an ifttt Wordpress to Evernote task to auto archive my future posts. Look forward to your help! Victor
