  1. My Samsung S4 lollipop still runs EN 8.5.2 without any problem. So, the real problem is that EN refuses to download the compatible version 8.5.2 to these old devices. I also wonder where the previous APK's are archived on the evernote website? Of course, EN needs to keep the note format compatible with 8.5.2 !
  2. We always complain about Microsoft, but at least, with Windows 10 they do a much better job than Google or Apple in supporting ancient devices: https://www.pcworld.com/article/2951112/hardware/can-your-old-pc-run-windows-10-the-answer-will-surprise-you.html
  3. You should blame your phone manufacture: they should keep their phones up to date with the latest OS, they have plenty of resources to do that but they just refuse to do that...

    Read-Only Option for Notes

    What good are these backups if you don't know which notes have been altered accidentally?

    Why no dark mode for Windows ?

    I also grew up with dark mode, then switched to white screens for a big part of my professional life and switched back to dark mode a year ago. I prefer the dark theme because it is much easier on my eyes. I am a professional developer, so I am sitting in front of IDEs for some 8h/day. It is much healthier for the eyes, less UV (less cataract) and less eye strain. For me, the difference is spectacular.

    Why no dark mode for Windows ?

    Since EN is implemented above CF3, using web technology such as javascript, html5 and css, I would assume that they can indeed implement it rather easily. At this very moment I use OWL, a FireFox dark mode plugin and on Chrome you have Dark reader etc. Have a look at Visual Studio Code https://code.visualstudio.com/, a very nice editor completely written in javascript above CF3, with nice dark themes. So, technically it is perfectly possible in this technology.
  7. This is certainly an improvement, but I would still prefer a dark theme. I hope it comes soon now for windows...
  8. I'm sorry, I've pinpointed the problem: for some reason I lost a space in the substitution string (something went wrong with copy paste, I don't know). This is the correct command I use for a light-green background: c:\tools\sfk193.exe rep Evernote.exe -firsthit -text "/-webkit-touch-callout:text;/background-color:#f0faf0; /" -yes For light-blue, take #f0f8fa
  9. EN refuses to start, it returns the "side by side configuration error." I assume that EN (or the underlying infrastructure) detects that the Evernote.exe has been tampered with and it refuses to start. This is the exact message that pops up when attempting to start EN: "The application has failed to start because the side by side configuration is incorrect please see the application event log or use the command line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail. "
  10. Although I enabled the Beta features in EN, I get a side by side configuration error after applying the above patch. How can I work around this? I'm using (308094) Public (CE Build ce-58.1.6897) Thanks

    Another goodbye and some tips

    Sounds more like an Apple weakness...

    Another goodbye and some tips

    This is what I do with evernote as well, I use the EN native editor, Word, Exel, end of the day it doesn't matter, what matters is it's all searchable from a single place.

    Evernote for Windows 6.16 GA

    I have the same problem, not only when dragging, but also when pasting (CTRL-V) at a specific cursor location (even on a blank line) Note: I configured the option "always save pdf as attachment"

    Evernote for Windows 6.16 GA

    I hope they fix it soon, in the mean time, as already mentioned, you can work around by disabling "Create new note in a new window", under "Notes" in Options ...
