    Evernote for Windows 6.17 GA

    I also wonder whether the PDF search problem is solved in this release ?

    Iriska Evernote for Windows 6.17 beta 2

    Thanks for the diagnosis. My scanner OCR'ed my document to generate the indexed PDF. It has nothing to do with evernotes OCR, I agree. Was the IFilter plugin still activated in the 6.16.4 release? Because in that version the search is OK...

    Now that I downgraded back to 6.14.4, I scanned a document and saved it as an OCR indexed pdf file in my evernote import folder. The note is created and the indexed pdf is searchable! When I did that with this Beta release, new notes with indexed pdf were not searchable, at least not in Evernote for windows. They were however searchable in Evernote for Web or Android.

    Since I went back to 6.16.4 and experienced the same pdf search problem for my newest notes (last weeks), I decided to 'touch' the note by adding some characters to the title or body. From then on, the pdf is searchable again ! What's happening here? I rebuilt my database from scratch, no history whatsoever. Why do I need to touch the note to reactivate the indexed pdf search ? Is it possible that my newer notes which were created by this beta are in some way different than my older notes? When I edit these notes in 6.16.4, these notes are searchable again ?!? I could further prove this by re-installing the beta but I don't dare to further compromise my notes.

    I tested this and it is indeed handled as text. I can also search in adobe acrobat reader. The same note is searchable via Evernote For Web. So there is nothing wrong with my data on the servers, everything is searchable but not via Evernote for windows (also not working with the latest release 6.16.4) Edit: Older notes that aren't changed the last weeks (month?) are not affected, they are still searchable. Edit: The pdf search does work in Android Evernote as well

    I uninstalled this beta and reinstalled (308094) Public (CE Build ce-58.1.6897) and synced the complete database from scratch. However, I still can't search the expected indexed pdf notes, while I can find them via Evernote For Web. Conclusion: this search bug is in the released version as well !!!

    Thanks for testing. The search behaviour is very unpredictable: while duplicating a note, not only a new note is created, but my old note is touched as well. From then on; none of these notes with attached OCR indexed pdf are searchable anymore. I opened the attached pdf with adobe acrobat reader and I can still search inside the OCR'ed index. So the pdf file is not corrupted. Then I did the same query in Evernote For Web, and surprise, I can find all expected notes. So, my conclusion so far is that this problem is introduced by this Beta release. I will roll back to the latest release to confirm this. Question: Is the query always handled by the EN servers or is it cached locally? Maybe this local cache may be corrupted...

    Thanks for testing, but isn't Evernote's OCR used for premium users (I have a Plus subscription without EN OCR, that's one of the reasons that I use indexed pdfs , the other reason is that I don't want to lock me in)

    Is there anything changed concerning indexed pdf search ? I have a Plus subscription and I could search in my indexed PDF's without any problem. Now, when I create a new note, with a copy of an indexed pdf from an old note that is still searchable, I can't search it. So I can't search the same pdf in a new note although it still works in my old notes, weird... edit: also when I just duplicate an old note with an attached indexed pdf, the clone isn't searchable while the original still is...
  10. 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 !
  11. 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
  12. 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.
