  1. And what happens with unencrypted data after encryption ? Is that also deleted in the Note History? Edit: I prevent this race condition by disconnecting my network first, before entering my unencrypted data and the actual encryption
  2. The ENEX doesn't do the job completely: internal note links are lost and it isn't human readable. In the legacy windows HTML export, internal note links and tags are preserved. If EN doesn't take export more seriously and legacy would be stopped, I'm not sure that I will stay a paying customer any longer. I hope that they will solve the HTML export problems soon, because I think they are on the right track with the new platform and I really would like to stay and use the full feature set.
  3. I'm on Plus as well, and the easiest way to convince me to upgrade to Personal isn't a 40% discount, but a working reliable HTML export. Five months ago, I reported the blocking problem that attachments are lost in the exported HTML and it still isn't solved yet (@EN: ticket 3309909). This makes HTML export useless. As long as there isn't a reliable human readable export, my data is in danger and I won't upgrade...
  4. concerning saved searches, how can I remove a saved search if it isn't in the shortcut list ?
  5. I just found this interesting script to solve the GUID problem when importing ENEX files into Joplin: https://github.com/msbentley/everlink . This technique may be used for other targets as well.
  6. Maybe this: https://discussion.evernote.com/forums/topic/138326-stuck-at-128-notes-per-tag/ This is still there in 10.21.5 😕
  7. No need for that, this is basic knowledge, they already did it properly in legacy for windows...
  8. Agreed for most of the code but not for the HTML export which, if properly written, is a simple independent conversion function with a note as input and html as output. No dependencies with frameworks should exist...
  9. Export to HTML works on notebooks as well. Unfortunately, the export is still very buggy. One of the major bugs is ticket 3309909, issued long time ago 🤔
  10. I just wonder whether there is a big difference between a single filterered widget changed on the fly, and good old saved searches?
  11. I hope to encourage EN via this thread to look at the superior HTML export for windows, instead of trying to fix V10 from scratch. One more remark (from own experience) : it is sometimes better to refactor existing code instead of rewriting it completely because a lot of non documented features are described inside the source code only. This is certainly true for EN where functionality has never been documented properly...
  12. AFAIK it was already written in javascript in the latest legacy. Whats more, considering EN's lack of resources, this is a very isolated piece of code which is a really good candidate for reuse. And even if they didn't like to reuse it (as most developers, me included), they could have at least looked at the functionality and how it was exported in order to prevent the pitfalls we see now in V10 🙄
  13. On my windows system, even a fast double click seems to work properly
  14. I can confirm that legacy on windows did it right: file:///C:/YourFileLocation/B.html (see also https://discussion.evernote.com/forums/topic/118497-looking-for-an-evernote-alternative-probably-found-the-closest-option/?do=findComment&comment=598858 The windows legacy implementation does everything right: links point directly to other exported HTML files, tags are stored in a visible table, attachments can be opened by clicking... I can't understand why EN engineers haven't reused this HTML-export code. Unfortunately, the developer left EN a couple of years ago (his alias was "dcon" I think).
  15. I just looked at the tutorial and a few examples, nothing more yet. Once you've setup it up, I think it's not that difficult to write simple scripts for specific tasks. But of course, it's much more low level than AppleScript I suppose. Also, I have the impression that it's so powerful that you can destroy your complete database with a buggy script. Maybe this is possible in AppleScript as well? Another possibility is that we write our own simple (apple)scripting language on top of the EN API, a little bit more ambitious but the advantage is that we can build in safety guards to prevent database damage by corrupted scripts. A third possibility (maybe more realistic) is that we write or extend the python EN API with some powerful scripting functions. These high level functions can then be used to write your own dedicated scripts in python.
  16. Out of curiosity, have you ever tried the Evernote API, for python for instance?
  17. It seems EN finally tries to save some memory by using signed 8 bit values 😉
  18. I'm confident that EN will keep Legacy alive till the performance and the related 50 notes limit are fixed
  19. There seems to be light at the end of the tunnel for performance improvements of bulk actions:
  20. clicking on an attachment thumbnail inside a note does nothing. For instance, it does shows the pdf icon, but clicking on it doesn't open the document.
  21. On my windows EN, opening, changing and saving back does work flawlessly for word and pdf files. Edit: it works for jpg files as well. So I wouldn't be surprised that it works for all file types...
  22. Thanks for the workaround but I need a human readable export format (apart from ENEX)...
  23. @gbarry: Thank you very much, I like the continuous releases 🙂 Talking about 10.19, after several releases ticket 3309909 is still not fixed: attachment links don't work in exported HTML This makes HTML export useless. Can you please increase the priority of this issue. If customers have the feeling that they are locked in without proper export, they will leave. This issue really stops me from upgrading my Plus plan to Personal...
  24. I'm on Plus as well and I'm very confident that this will not be changed by EN. However, if HTML export and the 50 notes selection limit will be fixed, I intend to switch to Personal myself.
