  1. okay that's interesting! of course I have no EN desktop database now but I guess I may need to create one again to do the export of notes. If that is the case then I may look into that before I go ahead. Cheers.
  2. well the main problem was that windows EN just didn't work and kept hanging. I would go to use it and it would take a minute and a half to wake up. - even just typing a new note. Stuck with it for years like that but then gave up and moved to web only. But now I come to merge and do other stuff I realise that web doesn't do it. It is nice to know that stuff is there if I really need it so starting again would probably be cutting off my nose to spite my face so to speak - although there is no real spite going on anywhere! EN does seem to be getting better since the shift in management from what I've seen over the past year so giving windows a go again with fewer notes and a better tagging system is something I want to do. Tried one note but it wasn't for me. Most of my day to day stuff is now in ms office & simplemind. It would be sooo cool to have that(simplemind) integrated into EN! Remote access via splashtop means I can get access most times but it's not ideal and certainly not what I envisaged when I started with EN back in the day.
  3. Thanks everyone. I've been considering splitting for a while. I'm gonna just go ahead and do it. Then maybe I will actually be able to retrieve some stuff from my 15000 notes! Of course the non-retrieval thing probably suggests I don't even need a second account just delete it all and start again!!!! ....and so goes my LOVE/hate relationship with EN ;-). maybe anti hoarding therapy would be more appropriate. 🙂 cheers
  4. Hi Guys, I want a subset of my notes with FULL control and functionality the rest I'm happy to have reduced functionality of Evernote web. How do I do this please? I don't have EN windows at the moment so can't test this out by trial and error. Also I'm considering maybe moving most of my static notes to a free account but there are a lot or them 15K+. What would be the best way to do this and would it be easy to switch between accounts without having to login/out every time? thanks in advance.
  5. Thanks Gazumped. I think option 2 is a good way I can do it.
  6. okay thanks. From what I remember I think the issue was that a note could be synched whilst it was open or being created and therefore an unencrypted version could find its way into a backup or be accessed by en whilst the encryption was off. Later I read that it could also be held locally (maybe in cache) unencrypted. I guess that hasnt changed then if that was true. I really want to access on the move so local notebook wont work for me there. There are android apps that work well enough I was just hoping I could return to EN for that. I keep coming back and then going then coming back again and hoping it's better lol! ... and actually I have been pleasantly suprised that the newest windows version doesnt hang as much so its quite useable :-)
  7. Hi, is text encription any better than a few years ago with regard to security or does it still leave traces of unencrypted data on local machines and backups etc. I stopped using it for passwords some time ago but now wondering if I can revisit. thanks
  8. I think this will be the best option. Lets see how long I can keep it up ;-) thnx
  9. thanks. Yeh I get it. I have a campervan so its great when I can sit in it with my lappy. However out and about especially when in a busy shopping mall or at dinner or at a wedding etc anything bigger than a phone doesn't quite work for me.
  10. Yes that's an obvious solution by using EN to bring it all togeter - thanks. But I struggle with EN not running properly and hanging. I cant trust it to be there when I want it. Scanbot is working really well on the scan and send principle but not for adding notes and dictation. I want it to be real quick to . unobtrusive in use. Thinking about it maybe I can find a audio and text note taking app which will auto send to EN and then combine them on the PC when I get home. Its just that i'm not organised and often dont do stuff like that so it'll all end up with 100s notes uncombined. I'm a real EN lover but you still have to be organised to use it well. I'm not organised at all and so the panacea of dropping stuff in a box and being able to retrieve it later still evades me. cheers Fred
  11. My preference is Windows I have apple in house but dont like it so don't use it. Are you suggesting that windows mobile will do a better job? I forgot to mention that it must be mobile. How do you do this without multiple apps etc. and if multiple apps how to you get it all merged before sending to EN?
  12. I currently use scanbot to phot scened and documents and send then to evernote however I'd like to do more and better. I'd like to take a photo, rotate.crop.decolour,documentize etc like a note scan app would but then I'd like to add a txt note and also a voice mp3 note if necessary and bundlethem all up and post into evernote. The tags can be in the txt note as long as EN can read them. So basically my EN note would contain a pdf, mp3 and txt all in one note. Has anyone done anything like this (i'm sure someone has) and what is the best way to do it?I need it to be fast and easy steps. No good if I have to use multiple apps and go into the OS or gallery to combine files. btw I prefer android rather than IOS. thnx btw2.... I used to use the EN widget but it broke and doesn't seem to be workable now on my S3. Also it wasn't great when it did work maybe because EN was slow on the S3 I dont know. What I really want is for a good standalone solution which will send the end product to EN rather than use EN on the phone.
  13. I'm on 10 too. I've changed my options to match yours and also set less regular syncs. Will see how this goes - thanks
  14. Hi, I'm having a problem with EN just stopping. It could be 20s or a minute+. It's sometimes during sync but most times not. It always happens within the 1st 5 minutes of EN startup and then generally always sometime during a long note creation (often 20-30s here). Occasionally it stops when searching or scrolling notes. I've reported this to support but to date there hasn't been a resolution. Do others have this problem? Is it something just to live with or is there a resolution? Any ideas what causes it? thanks
  15. Ah okay I'll wait and see what the emails say before I waste any time looking into new options. I'm happy with EN especially as I'm only a domestic user but paying any more for a non-business service is a no go for me. - thanks
