  1. Many thanks for that URL. Maybe I can figure out what's going on -- and what to do in response -- from that. I guess I can get rid of the 'Mac' that's noted as being from 78 months ago. That would seem to be the obvious choice, especially since I see that 'unsyncing' doesn't lead to any loss of notes, which is what I thought might or would happen. I agree that the 'web' "device" isn't particularly useful, but it does keep your account available in case you don't have your own hardware with you and need to access something in your account.
  2. Thanks, yes I'd already done that (checked at EN's website). My Mac (i.e., a single device) definitely seems to be being seen as two separate devices according to the listing there. How can I figure out which "Mac" device EN is actually syncing to? I assume it's the one marked 'Current,' since the other refers to a date 78 months ago, which is presumably when I first created my EN account. I don't know how two identifies for the same device ended up being created. This issue is new to me, never ran across it before. I also wasn't able to check my EN version number -- that information wasn't available even when I was logged in to my desktop account, because the 'excess devices' error message blocked access to all features, including checking the version number. (Not a smart move, Evernote Team.) I may very well be in the other 'version' category (the older one).
  3. I've found myself effectively locked out of my account -- even after logging in – with no explanation of what the 'two device' maximum is all about. I'm informed that I'm using 3 devices and need to eliminate one from syncing. My devices are described as: Desktop / Mac / Web. Apparently, one of these has to lose syncing unless I upgrade to a 'premium' account. But how are the "Desktop' and 'Mac' two separate devices? I'm using the Mac Desktop. That's one device, not two. This 'surprise' notification about an apparent change that's been made by Evernote is the strangest way to find out about 'new changes' in an app I've ever encountered. Especially with not having access to my account until I figure out what this new device limit is about in order to make 'the right choice.' *** Advice will be greatly appreciated. ***
  4. Thanks. I don't recall ever having run into this before. The article is: https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/russian-federation/2017-03-10/russia-trump-and-new-d-tente In the 'simplified' clip it ends at "threaten the postwar liberal order." (end of 4th paragraph from the end) The 'full' clip preserved the entire article (but of course also all the graphics, etc. I didn't want). I'm not familiar with Nimbus Capture but thanks for the tip, I'll check it out. I'll note the issue via Twitter also.
  5. A 'simplified article' clip (using Web Clipper) truncated an article, omitting the last three paragraphs (a sizeable amount of text). A second 'full article' save worked in the desktop version but the web version had the same truncation. Is there a way to troubleshoot this or should I 'report' it? If so, how is it done (for either)? Thanks.
  6. Thanks @CalS and @jefito. It looks like separate user accounts is the way to go if one wants to avoid the need to log out of one EN account and into another -- i.e., to be able to have both EN accounts available simultaneously.
  7. But is that required -- i.e., a separate user account at the 'computer' level -- just to access an EN account? This is on a Mac but I believe 'user accounts' work pretty much the same as in Windows. I wouldn't think that (a separate user account) would be necessary, but maybe the fact that EN stores data locally as well as on the Web (unless disabled by the user) assumes/requires it. (?)
  8. It's one other person, with her own account, & the issue is how she can access her EN (& Web Clipper, which she needs to install) on my computer. I already have my own EN account and Web Clipper on my computer. So the question is how to prevent anything related to EN being associated with my account. If she were to log into her EN account and then go to the Chrome Web Store to install the Clipper, I assume that would either fail because my own Clipper would be recognized or the install (hers)would overwrite the current Clipper (mine). BTW, this is on a Mac. Thanks.
  9. I wanted to know how someone other than the computer's main user can access their Evernote account (& use the Web Clipper). I asked because I'm not familiar with multiple user accounts.
  10. Given that Evernote is account-based I'm wondering how to install the Web Clipper for different Chrome users on the same computer. Can anyone walk me through that? Thanks. (Note that the Chrome Web Store isn't accessible in Incognito Mode (meaning the Clipper extension isn't either), otherwise that would have provided an option.)
  11. Maybe I'm missing something but I'm perplexed by all these posts, especially those urging Evernote to create a Clipper implementation for Brave. (Maybe it's because most of these posts are old?) Under the current Dev Build (BRAVE) there should, as far as I know, be no problem installing the Clipper because it thinks it's installing in Chrome. Or is there something about the Clipper that makes it different from other browser extensions?
  12. Thanks. Why is this a "not-supported query," though? Doesn't EVERNOTE want the Clipper available as widely (i.e., in as many browsers) as possible?
  13. The current dev build of the Brave browser supports Chrome extensions in general. So far, I've had no problems with any I've used. Is there anything unusual about the Evernote Web Clipper that would (or might) prevent a successful installation in Brave or other Chrome-like browsers? I posted here (rather than under general discussion of the Clipper) because I use a Mac and don't know whether implementation of the Clipper on the Mac has specific considerations that don't apply in Windows. Thanks.
  14. Thanks, I did search but found nothing that made it clear the Clipper was only available as an extension. I knew it was used primarily that way but thought there might also be a standalone version, as is often the case with extensions. It would be very useful to have the Clipper's functionality available when using a browser that doesn't support the extension. As opposed to having to run a supported browser just for that purpose.
