  1. As a backup to the frequent issues raised here to do with note conflicts and duplicates I'd like to suggest that Evernote add a utility to the Help menu to check an account for duplicated notes and highlight any differences in content. This won't help identify or remove conflicting change notes that have two or more different versions of text in the same note (unless someone can come up with a check that would find them), but it would help find all duplicates by created date and title or (maybe) the first line(s) of the content, and could highlight any differences between similar versions of one note. Since the common editor is now (?) in place across all platforms, this 'should' be at least possible, and maybe even helpful in controlling the size of synced databases, and improving sync speeds.
  2. Please add a function similar to the diff-&-merge for resolving "conflicting changes" conflicts? The conflict occurred when you synchronized two notes edited on different devices in off-line mode. Here you can read the heart cry of some Evernote's user with a detailed description of the problem:
  3. I really need some help (and am super nervous about using this platform, but I have searched the forums and have no where else to turn. Ill try to anticipate questions about my question I generated about a hundred notes, each in various notebooks, over a year ago using my macbook for a research project. These notes synced with my iPhone and I can still see them there. I can see the notebooks I made on my macbook, but no notes inside. In other words, I can SEE these notebooks on my macbook, they simply say that they have ZERO notes in them. And, I can see these notebooks and notes on my iPhone). Last piece of important info for you amazing and generous sleuths: I have neither a new iPhone nor a new macbook since I put the new notes in my computer. I DO remember getting the notice about conflicting changes and I thought that I input the correct answer for each, and I let it do its thing. I was thinking about taking the deal for 50% off EN Premium, but not sure its gonna be worth it! I need this help to finish my dissertation in a terrible way. thank you so much!!
  4. The other day I got an email from Evenote with a poll about yet another collaborative platform they're working on. There was a super-long list of questions that I gave up on when it was asking me to choose multiple times between pricing tiers, because I felt it was ignoring the elephant in the room: Collaborating via Evernote is incredibly painful because of the utter lack of any help in dealing with two different versions of a note. Seriously, I've been trying to use it for bits of collaboration, and it's a nightmare. Every time two people poke at the same note at once you end up with either a new "Conflicting Changes [some date]" notebook with a copy of the note in it, or get a "Conflicting Changes [some date]" banner jammed between two copies of the note's content. (For a while I was only getting the banner thing, I though the notebook thing was gone, but last week I got a new Conflicting Changes notebook for the first time in ages, I have no idea why one or the other happens.) Hell, you can generate them all by yourself by just accidentally having the same note open on a couple of devices at once. And then the only thing to do is to manually open two windows on my computer and slowly scroll through them, looking for all the changes, and making one good note via cut and paste. If I'm on my phone or tablet I can't even do that, I just have to pick one to edit and make things even worse. I mean, look, that was fine when sharing notes was a brand new feature. You don't expect to have every detail of a big change like that worked out the first time. But Evernote has had collaboration for years and we still have to manually look for and merge changes. And to be quite honest, I'm starting to move into managing projects, and Evernote's hell of conflicting changes is the last damn thing I want to inflict on the team I'm building. There are tools to deal with this sort of problem. There have been tools to deal with this sort of problem for decades. Evernote's programmers probably rely on tools like this to fix this sort of problem when merging their changes into the source tree. There's a programmer tool called "diff" designed to make this sort of thing much easier that's been around since 1970. There's a rich field of modern graphical diff clients that very clearly show the user which file is the 'original', which is the 'conflicting version', and what the additions/subtractions were. There's a lot of publicly documented algorithms for figuring out what's added/removed/changed/moved. There's a ton of prior art to play with and take inspiration from. I mean this is interesting, albiet a little opaque without the manual to explain it. This is super visual. Red is probably deletions, green is probably additions, not sure what blue is. Apple's tool is surprisingly difficult to look at. I guess it's Good Enough For Programmers. And that's just a few examples plucked from the first page of an image search for 'diff client'. Just, like, put a few interns on a skunkworks project of "diff-inspired conflicting changes UI" for a few weeks, see what happens, start playing with it, give it a grey/green skin, fix this thing that is broken at the center of this tool I've put all my notes into for the past seven years, and been a paid user of for most of those. Because thinking about this just made me go ask all my friends "what else is out there".
  5. I gave a friend viewing and editing permissions on a notebook because we are trying to work on a project together. she is using the web version of evernote, and I am using the desktop version. at first, it seemed like her edits were overriding my previous ones, but then we came to realize my notes on my computer and what she can view in the browser are not syncing up two notes that she edited were placed in the "conflicting changes" tab on my end. I deleted them, but said project partner still can't see my changes to notes in her browser. when I log onto the web version of evernote, none of my changes made on my desktop app are reflected. the sync icon in my version of desktop evernote is continuously spinning, suggesting my changes aren't being synced, even when I manually use the sync shortcut I don't want to lose my work and I can't figure out how to allow us both to have matching syncs, as well as stopping whatever is blocking evernote on my desktop from syncing with the web version
  6. "Conflicting Changes" are piling up because I don't have the time to go thru them, especially while on my phone. I can't find the differences. When going into and out of wi-fi or cell coverage and USING my evernote, there can be overlapping changes, and I don't know which is current because I can't SEE the old and the new. This causes me to NOT make entries in Evernote, for fear of adding ANOTHER conflict, that must then be perused. And I have too many already (needing examination). There needs to be a screen where I can evaluate the conflicts. It could be a window that simply shows the two files side-by-side where I can choose one. Maybe in later incarnations, a smarter window that highlights the differences. In some cases I have to decide between 3 changes. And this window needs a "delete this conflict" BUTTON.
  7. Hey I know there are loads of posts on this. but most seem to be about 1 person sharing notes on 2 devices I.E a shared note 1 user using tablet & laptop. Myself and my business partner use a shared workbook for our daily to do, adding editing & completing tasks all day. no matter how much we try and remeber to hit sync after an edit we get multiple confliced changes. is there any way around this or are we better to move to something like google drive where two people can edit 1 note at the same time in real time without issue?
  8. Does anyone know if I can delete these "conflicting changes error messages from within my notebooks? Apple desktop running Mavericks..
  9. I have been working on a long and complex List of TO DOs on both my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and my MacBook Pro. I also had a slightly different name for a previous version of this note. I didn't realize I had to sync each device after making changes. Today my list shows up on the MacBook as "Conflicting Changes" and it lists the title of the original note, which I may have deleted, but has saved the note -- but only on the MacBook. It is NOWHERE to be found on my Galaxy Note 4. I have tried syncing. I have read everything your staff has written about the subject that I could find, and have two comments: (1) Although I'm highly educated and intelligent, I found your explanation indecipherable, and (2) I did not find an explanation anywhere as to how to recover the Note on my Galaxy Note 4. Please help, as the whole reason I got Evernote was to be able to work on it from both sites, as well as remotely when I'm away from my computer . . . Thank you! Carolyn Long (BizTalk)
  10. I had a to-do list I spent a lot of time on and somehow it got deleted. But then after hours I finally found the trash. Then I found the note and it was an old one, not the one I was looking for. This has really screwed me up. I didn't do anything. My pc says there conflicting modifications and I don't know what this means. I'm so pissed. Why would those idiots make it so hard to find the trash anyway?
  11. I've used Evernote forever and I love it. I have run into an issue that I've not run into before as you can see from this print screen: I was going to delete the Conflicting Notes folder since it seemed emtpy. It tells me differently when I go to delete it. I do not see the 2 notes that it tells me it is about to delete. I'd like to ditch this folder if it is indeed empty... but is it? Where are the two notes if it is not? Any ideas?
  12. Just yesterday, I started having notes I have been working on suddenly moved to the "Conflicting Changes" and "Unsynced Notes" areas. I have been working with Evernote exclusively for about a month now (copies on PC, iPhone, iPad) without a hitch or this ever happening. Program update problem? Any ideas?
  13. Hi, I saw the "Conflicting Changes" local folder in my database was empty, and decided to delete it today. After being asked 'Are you sure you would like to PERMANENTLY delete the notebook "Conflicting Changes"?', I pressed Delete Notebook and got the following message: "You are about to PERMANENTLY delete 3 notes. This action cannot be undone. Are you sure you want to delete these notes?" This does not make sense, because those three notes do not exist. Hence, it must be that the database is confused somehow. I am using Evernote 4.6.1.7772 (268280) Prerelease, on Windows 7 Ultimate. Thank you! Z.
  14. A lot of times I open the Evernote client for Windows and try to edit a note. Then it starts syncing and I end up with conflicting changes, or worse, sometimes it even overwrites the old version with my changes, losing everything that was done in between. So as a simple solution, wouldn't it make sense to lock the notes upon starting the client until the initial sync finishes?
