  1. This version has driven me away from Evernote, and I had been a fully committed premium user and advocate since 2009. Unusable for more than 1 hour at a time on mac, flaky text editing, ancient problems not syncing fully to iOS, and requirement to reinstall, with associated long resync times every time I filed a bug report.
  2. Ok, I'll try the sign out, sign in. Didn't think of that. Both addresses are valid and associated with the same account (premium since 2009). I just want to swap primary/secondary.
  3. I've looked all over and I can't find the support page anymore. I need to report two problems: (1) Evernote 6.10 on OS X randomly consumes GB of memory, slowing the entire system down and requiring Evernote restart (2) I wanted to swap my primary and secondary emails, so I deleted the secondary, and when I tried to change the primary to what had been the secondary, it told me that email is already in use.
  4. Yes, the current version of Evernote, 6.10 (454267 Direct) goes berserk once or twice a day on my Mac, consuming > 1GB of memory and requires a restart.
  5. mailto:person@place is slightly different, because it opens a new mail message addressed to the person@place. It also works on Mac Evernote (I just checked). The message:... URI instructs Mail to open a specific message with the ID that you put where I have the "...". On Windows, the equivalent function would be outlook:..., The file://... URI works on Mac, too. What I would really like is for Evernote to let me put in whatever I want there, and I'll worry about whether it is a valid URI or not. The application URIs can be quite useful for linking bits of information between apps.
  6. Probably the most useful feature for me in Evernote is dumping emails into it that require me to do something (think, respond, follow-up, etc.). I use Mail Butler and sometimes Alfred for this, and I get a nice "message:..." link in the note that lets me get back to that email in my mail application to reply, read more context in the thread, etc. The most useful missing feature is the ability to add links to other emails into notes. When you create a link in the note text (^k or menus), the URL police turn the "OK" button grey for links that they don't agree with, stopping me from pasting a "message:..." link as the hypertext. I get these links from a simple Applescript I wrote that copies the link for the message selected in mail. Thus, it is impossible for me to make a note like this: Mars Mission Select launcher – Falcon Heavy specifications (this would contain an evernote://.. link to that note) Select crew – 4 candidates have emailed so far: Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Vladimir Putin, Buzz Aldrin Those underlined links would link to the email messages in Mail. I want to do this rather than bring those messages into Evernote because they are evolving threads, and I want to be able to quickly jump to that thread in Mail rather than store a snapshot of it. I understand that Evernote doesn't want to include links that might not work everywhere, but these links ("message:...") do work everywhere I need them to. All my Macs (3), both iPads and my iPhone. So, Specific request: please allow "message:..." links in text links General request: please allow me to put anything I want in the text links. I'll take responsibility if they don't work somewhere.
  7. Hooray! I don't know when it happened, but this finally appears to be fixed. Just verified with Evernote for Mac 6.4 (452969 Direct) and Evernote on iPad version as follows: Create "Test Note" in "Incoming" notebook on Mac Sync Mac Sync iPad Use Applescript (I bind mine to ctrl-alt-n) to move "Test Note" to "Notes" notebook on Mac Sync Mac Sync iPad Verify "Test Note" is in "Notes" notebook on iPad and Mac Create "Test Note" in "Incoming" notebook on iPad Sync iPad Sync Mac Use Applescript (I bind mine to ctrl-alt-n) to move "Test Note" to "Notes" notebook on Mac Sync Mac Sync iPad Verify "Test Note" is in "Notes" notebook on iPad and Mac
  8. The link from the calendar entry for notes with reminders is very useful. If it used the internal evernote:// app link, which works on Mac and iOS, it would be even better, opening the note directly in Evernote instead of having to go through the web browser. Mostly, it is a question of convenience, but if I happened to not have Internet connectivity at the time, the feature would be broken. A direct evernote:// app link would not require an Internet connection.
  9. This is still not fixed. Evernote for Mac version Version 6.2 (452688 Direct), iPad version New ticket created #1332587 Problem has been open since July 2014
  10. The Mail program that comes with your Mac works with Exchange servers (I use it on our company one), and I use a plugin for it called "Evermail". My favorite thing about Evermail is that it records the email message ID as the note source URL, so you can click that and it opens the original message in Mail. This is very convenient when using Evernote to manage tasks, as I can get back to the original message in Mail and reply, forward, etc.
  11. For the most part, yes. I don't use notebooks to separate work/personal or projects, with the following exceptions: If I need to collaborate with someone else, I create a notebook for that and share it. I don't usually share individual notes, just notebooks. There are certain repetitive tasks I do, mostly evaluation of Invitations to Tender. These have a fairly constant structure and I never know until I have finished if we will be responding to the ITT. These, I keep in separate notebooks so that I can archive them if we are not going to bid. They, too, often get shared. For courses that I take (on-line and off-line), I create notebooks for similar reasons. In short, "incoming" and "notes" notebooks are the only necessary ones, other notebooks are for sharing and archive. By the way – since the original post, I have extended the system to include Evernote business, and it made the transition just fine. I didn't really have to change anything.
  12. I can't find where to set which notebooks to sync for off-line use. It used to be under "premium", I think. Now that is just a list of features.
  13. Tried to check the status of the old ticket, #655982. I had received a response from Jason at Evernote support that the bug had been verified and passed to the developers. I tried to contact Evernote regarding the old ticket, and received a canned response that the ticket number is invalid. This is one of the recurring problems with Evernote support. We have no visibility into the status of tickets, even after they have been validated by support. For the new ticket, all I have received is a request for description, logs, etc. I do not intend to resubmit this information, so I expect the new ticket will be dropped, too. In short, an unsatisfying support experience: Submit ticket Redirect to developer forum for confirmation Provide confirmation Receive confirmation from Evernote that the bug has been reproduced Wait 10 months and several versions ... Still not fixed, ticket has been closed
  14. New ticket raised for this problem: 1050628 because I suspect the old one from Jul 2014 has been binned.
