  1. Not only cumbersome, but evernote printing is extremely buggy as well :-/
  2. Item 1 is solved if you store it as an attachment instead of plain text ( I prefer the view-as-attachment as well) For item 2, AES-256 is just the mathematical compression algorithm, there is much more involved when compressing a complex note with different attachments, and as far as I know, this is not documented and/or standardized. So, I would prefer not just any third-party format but a strong (defacto) standard file format. I want to be able to read it, without the need to write my own decompression program, in case something would happen with SafeRoom. Normally, these encrypted files are always accessed via SafeRoom, but it is extremely important to know that my data is accessable without SafeRoom and portable if needed. IMO, SafeRoom's success heavily depends on this feature...
  3. Excuse me, imo this isn't a new topic or highjack ; it is a suggestion to make Saferoom more attractive and robust. I really like Saferoom's full feature-set, except for the embedded encryption which has some blocking problems (at least for me) : accidental change of only a single character leads to complete note loss proprietary encryption format lock-in In order to solve these problems, Saferoom could adopt a standard encryption file format such as 7-zip or pdf, and leave the smooth Saferoom workflow exactly as it is. Btw: can you convert any (rich) note to pdf from within EvernoteForWindows ?
  4. Especially this statement is very promising: "...I’ve asked Josh Zerkel, our Director of Community, to establish a new Evernote Customer and Community Advisory Board that will meet quarterly. This group will provide a systematic way to inject customer feedback into major decisions. The first of these panels will meet in February in San Francisco. If you would like to be part of the discussion, contact us at community@evernote.com. ..."

  6. Is there an option to encrypt the whole note in a standard encrypted pdf file format? I don't want lock-in by a proprietary encryption format.
  7. I use NAPS2, a great open source pdf scanner on my PC which produces searchable pdf. The pdf search always works in my Evernote Plus. Are you sure that your CamScanner really produces searchable pdf?
  8. There is still hope though: it turns out that the the google cloud move may lead to much more advanced cryptographic techniques, such as searching in encrypted data. Evernote would never find the resources to research and develop this all by itself. Below an excerpt from https://cloud.google.com/security/encryption-at-rest/ " ...Google plans to remain the industry leader in encryption for cloud services. In terms of developing, implementing, and researching newer cryptographic techniques, we have teams working on: Partially homomorphic cryptography, which allows some operations to be performed on data while it is encrypted, so the cloud never sees the data in plaintext, even in memory. One place this technology is being used is as part of our experimental encrypted BigQuery client, which is openly available. Format- and order- preserving cryptography, which allows some comparison and ranking operations to be performed on data while it is encrypted. ..."
  9. Can you search in Backblaze encrypted data ?
  10. Here is an example of a similar PDF scanner in the GooglePlay store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.grymala.photoscannerpdftrial
  11. I use NAPS2, a great open source pdf scanner app. You can save your scanned documents as searchable pdf and encryption is possible as well. The OCR is very reliable. This proves that both encryption and OCR can run smoothly at the client side. https://www.naps2.com/
  12. Clarification: although encrypted search technology already exists, you can not search inside an encrypted pdf file
  13. I just discovered a great free open source scanner PDF tool: NAPS2 https://www.naps2.com/ "...Scan with a single click. Easily scan with your chosen settings, or set up multiple profiles for different devices and configurations. Once you've finished scanning, you can save, email, or print with only a couple clicks. Save to PDF, TIFF, JPEG, PNG, or other file types ..." You can scan your documents and then save them as a searchable encrypted pdf file. You can also import already scanned documents and save or merge them back into pdf. This is a perfect fit in my evernote workflow!
  14. Today, evernote just saved me €99 : my dad's new phone is defect, and he lost his purchase receipt. Fortunately, I've put it in my Evernote, as I do for all my purchases as well. So, they went to the shop with the receipt printout and they agree to repair it or replace it for free :-) This way, I already saved a lot of money (LED lamps, clothing, shoes ...) . Evernote really pays itself back...
  15. I'm a premium user for 4 years now, but my monthly usage is only 1% of my capacity. Since I'm no power user, I consider to switch to the plus version, which is much closer to my profile...
  16. I just heard from my son that the new premium price is the same as his PS4 account :-;
  17. I live in Belgium and have still a premium price of €40
  18. I had some time to investigate this further: the new note seems to be OK in the windows and evernote on web; in the Android version, the new note title keeps mixed with an existing note content and I can't get rid of that by resyncing This is scary, I'm very tolerant for most bugs, but I get nervous when data consistency gets compromised! @evernote: is this a known bug and/or is this related to the new windows release (I have never seen this before...) . Maybe the note format is incompatible with the Android version?
