  1. On the theme of EVERNOTE NOT RESPONDING, as a spare toss in the beach bag PC I just got an ASUS E205HA notebook - the $200 Win10 budgetbook. It actually runs Word and Powerpoint pretty darn well. But Evernote shows up as "Not Responding" about every 30 seconds. So I *can* keep an Evernote archive on it (10,000 notes, 2 gb), but I should only use it when I really need to. I didn't expect much from a $200 2GB RAM machine, but my lesson is, Office works pretty well but not Evernote.
  2. I use Evernote all the time and suddenly on April 16 started having constant crashes immediately on opening. Out of a clear blue sky - I had not installed any new programs or anything. A regular size delete and install did not help. Very unpleasant experience by that point (win7 32bit) It shows my several thousand notes (it did not lose the content) but it crashes in 2 seconds upon opening. "Fatal Error." Reboot PC, restart EN, and "Fatal Error." I did a complete uninstall with Revo Uninstall (btw, free 30-day use). I just reinstalled the most current public release Evernote Windows. I apparently "only" have a gigabyte of EN so it downloaded from the cloud pretty fast. After this complete delete, and complete reinstall, it not only escapes the "crash" problem but EN is running much faster and features like Type Ahead Search are vastly faster than they were. Possibly, the intermittent sync freezes and type-ahead freezes I was experiencing for a month were a flag that I should have done the detailed uninstall and cleanup and reloading earlier, instead of waiting for a complete crash of EN today.
  3. I have the same problem (most commonly, with printing italics). They appear choppy and cut off. It seems amazing to me that this is a cryptic and difficult problem to solve. It is a significant problem. 2013 BMJ 346_f3133 Sequencing Genomes Pro Con OpEds.pdf
  4. I got this note back from EVERNOTE SUPPORT: We are sorry for any confusion in regards with your issue using your iPad. [They originally sent me a form email saying to reinstall windows.] Unfortunately, the iPad employs a security feature called sandboxing which essentially "boxes" one app from another on an iOS device. What that means is that when you activate the "Open In" feature, it copies the PDF from Evernote to (in this case) your PDF reader and then any changes to that PDF are now made to that version of the file. You can sync it via a number of methods, but the version in your Evernote will remain unchanged until you replace it manually. This is not exclusive to Evernote, the same holds true for essentially for all apps on iOS devices. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.

  6. Browncoat and GrumpyMonkey, thank you. Nice to know I found a problem, couldn't solve it, and nobody else can either. Apparently at least WORD docs can be opened/revised and closed/synced inside Evernote, but not PDFs.
  7. What about a PDF? (I actually started a thread on this but no answer yet.) I tried a couple PDF editors for opening a PDF that is inside EVERNOTE on an IPAD. The problem is, the PDF editors automatically seem to create some ghost copy of the PDF somewhere hidden and edit 'that." So the PDF inside EVERNOTE never changes. I think the difference may be that with a WORD document in IPAD EVERNOTE, a program like QUICK OFFICE PRO is the only Word editor there, and it opens the one original WORD document inside Evernote. However, with PDFs, the EVERNOTE program first launches the internal iOS PDF reader, which now "owns" the Evernote PDF but can't edit it. You can then open the PDF in a new real PDF editor you have bought, but, the new editor can't edit the PDf that the iOS PDF reader is holding, so the PDF editor has to make a new copy and edit that. Is there something I am missing or unable to figure out so far. My goal is simple: To be able to store PDFs to read in Evernote, read them on an IPAD, make yellow highlighting when I want, and then when I'm done, it all stays synced up inside Evernote.
  8. In Evernote Windows, I have a folder called PDFs where each note holds a PDF. I can go to the note in Windows Evernote, open the PDF, edit it (for example, highlighting or comments) and when I close it, the edited PDF is inside EVERNOTE. I can also replicate the same folder on IPAD. The IPAD EVERNOTE File.PDF will open by default in the IPAD PDF READER which cannot edit. However, I can reopen it in an IPAD PDF EDITOR and make highlights. PROBLEM: However, the highlights will be stored in a new hidden file somewhere and will not change or update the real original file.PDF file inside EVERNOTE. QUESTION: Is there a known PDF editor on an IPAD that will make the edits (highlights) in the EVERNOTE PDF file so they will SYNC? Easily? Like in Windows?
  9. I tried using tags and found I was just as happy with adding the letter z before a key word. For example, the name Williams occurs in many news articles and so on, but zWilliams is always my client Williams. This also lets you tag things without cluttering up your tag list and making it dozens of entries long. Anyway, it works for me. And searching for zWilliams instantly creates the equivalent of a folder for the Williams company. g I think Lisbeth's point is well taken though. What works well for a couple years - even a good tag method - after 5 or 10 or 12 years, you would have an awful lot of stuff. I suppose I could use a tag like zTEMP and then every six months delete everything older than a couple months that has the word zTemp in it.
  10. I agree that sometimes you just want a table in Evernote and not embed Excel. In Windows, one workaround for column width is to have, say, a two column table, and put in a continuous "underscore" of about 40-50 characters in the top or bottom row of the table. That prevents one of the worst problems, that one column diminishes to a half inch wide.
