  1. Thanks. 10+ years on and the elephant is a dinosaur. How sad ...but I'm finally giving up. It just never really got there. Always had amazing promise but lost it's way somewhere. BooHoo (really!)
  2. yep that worked - thanks. Personal crisis avoided lol!
  3. Thanks, you're right it wont solve the issue but it will allow me to keep notes (9 years of paying premium) in a searchable basic account.
  4. my bad yes local. This will help if I can do that ass most (not all) my notes are currently in the local notebooks. I'll try that now thnks
  5. sure. I exported all individual notebooks in html and enex. then created offline notebooks for each and them moved all notes into the corresponding offline notebooks. so basically no online notes left. TBH EN support have been no use during this whole process. Simply they could have just let me create a new account and make it plus then I could have made my current premium account basic at the end of the month (annual renewal time). Instead they just kept telling me plus was no longer available. After 9 yearrs I think I'm done. Windows desktop spend most of it's time waiting...has done for the last 3 or 4 years and I've never uploaded more than 1GB in a month anyway. Recently I've been just running web and android but there were things I couldnt do without desktop. So I thought I'd get a new clean install and start again with mountable local notes only to find they are not mountable and will still impact the desktop useability. I'm toying with the idea of doing this myself with a descktop database then at least it will be within my control. I dont see a future for EN any more they are just too slow to adapt/fix/innovate. Just can't believe I put up with it for so long. Hmmm sorry for the gripe....wasn't intending that.....I guess I'm just a bit dpressed about it all 😞
  6. actually what about history....could I roll ALL the notes back to before I moved them to local?
  7. So after exporting all 15000 (22gb) of notes to local notebooks only to find it's not what I expected, how do I get them back? do I have to buy extra premium or do I have to wait and do it over 3 months? cheers
  8. yeh after creating several offline notebook that's what I am finding. Wasted many hours on this now! Grrrr! 😉 Thanks for confirming my suspicions.
  9. I want to have portable offline notes on a usb stick then mount them when necessary. Can this be done?
  10. Hi, when I exported my notebook it split into several enex files. When I come to import, do I need to import all the files seperately or does it know to pickup all of the split files without user intervention? thnx
  11. it looks like this for me. other templates like weekly seem fine
  12. this is not formatted correctly in my evernote web. Does anyone have the same issue and have a solution? thanks
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. Thanks Gazumped. I think option 2 is a good way I can do it.
  18. 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 :-)
  19. 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
  20. I think this will be the best option. Lets see how long I can keep it up ;-) thnx
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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?
  24. 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.
  25. 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
