  1. Hmm, guess the problem is elsewhere then. Well that's good to know. I will compare with my friend and see if I can find any common denominators in the software we use to track it down, thanks everyone cleary Evernote is innocent as charged :-)
  2. Firstly, thank you for responding Its Interesting that others are not having these problems although obviously for those not using either clearly or sktich then 2 out of the 3 wont show up. I'm using Windows 7 / 64bit Firefox 34.05 (I keep it updated to the latest version (not betas) I use LastPass as my password manager so therefore I don't use the one inbuilt into the browser, maybe that has a bearing at least with clearly. Still that wouldn't explain Skitch on the shortcut becoming invalid.. To get the shortcut icon I click on the windows start button, then click on all programs, find the evernote folder, click on that, then finally right click the evernote icon within the folder and choose "create shortcut on desktop" when its done that I click on the icon on the desktop and drag it into the startup folder via the windows start button then the all programs once again. However the link becomes seemingly invalid after each update.....
  3. Can someone explain to me why, whenever Evernote is updated which seems at times to be every few weeks we have to go through unnecessary effort? OK, what am I referring to; Examples 1. I just logged into Evernote Clearly in my Firefox Browser. Because there has been an update since I last used it to either Clearly or to Evernote I have to fill in my login and password once again. So I go to my password manager and copy my username, then fill it in on the clearly popup box. Then I return to the password manager and collect a copy of the password only to find on returning to the popup box that the username has dissappaered! So I need to fill in my username manually as the password is far more complex every time there is an update. It sounds trivial but when it keeps happening and when you don't need to mess around like that with the big boys (Google, Microsoft etc) alternatives it gets to be a drag. 2. I then go to Skitch and want a copy of a website, should be a few seconds work, but no. Same old problem, because of yet another update I have to fill in my details all over again in skitch for it to function with Evernote! 3. With every other program I use regularly on my desktop, when they are updated it makes no difference to the shortcut icons I have placed in to my startup file. However, not Evernote! Each update means I have to destroy the last shortcut and create another one from the new icon! By the way, its not enough that Evernote put a line in the startup because it just opens the program minimised and I like all my continually used programs to be opened maximised at startup. I have no issues with the other programs that I open this way. If it was a one off it wouldn't be noticed but its every few weeks at times, whenever an update, however tiny is issued. Yet you don't have these annoyances listed above with other programs. I don't have to remove old shortcut icons to things like Skype, google drive, twitter etc. I love the idea of using a progam which is not in the control of one of the big companies and have stayed loyal therefore up until now but when a friend running a small business recently told me he was moving to Google Keep because of having to go through the process of signing in and supplying passwords to each part of Evernote for all 8 desktops at work with each update I realised I too am close to giving alternatives a try even if they don't sound nearly so productive. So again, is there a justifiyable explanation to this seemingly unnecessary annoyance which I am just unaware of at the moment?
  4. Thank you for your response. However if you tell it to open with windows it does not maximise the program it just remains in the background in your taskbar. I refer to some of my notes as soon as I start the pc so it makes sense to have ti open the program fully. I had indeed googled it and couldn't find an answer hence the question, your right of course its not for here I just added it on the offchance. Thanks
  5. This must have been asked many times before but I cannot find it anywhere, it maybe I am not thinking clearly as to how to search for it. One of the most annoying features for me re this wonderful program is that every time you release an update (and boy, don't you like to release plenty of updates) the program shortcut icon which I have to drag from the Evernote folder into the Startup folder if I want Evernote to fully open as part of the computers start-up routine becomes useless. Each and every time you bring out an update I have to delete the previous icon and once more go back and drag the icon from Evernote folder into the Startup folder. This is frustrating and it seems a total waste of time! Firefox are forever updating their program ad nauseam too however I never have to replace the Firefox icon in my Startup folder and the same goes for the four other programmes which I have in there. The same applies if you tell Windows to add the program to the taskbar. What is the cause of this annoying problem and can't it be fixed? Whilst I am here can I ask a second question on my blackberry 9810 torch I have the Evernote app. I wish to copy some text within one of the notes so that I can then transfer this to another program. However, whichever combination of keys I try I cannot fathom out how to do this. Naturally I need some way to tell it to select text, then copy it, any ideas? I am using Windows 7 64-bit and the desktop Evernote 5.3.1336 Thank you for your interest Lancy
