creating an offline notebook

Recommended Posts

I am going out of the country, won't have reliable internet access, and can't remember how to make a notebook available offline (I'm a Premium member). At one time I did make a notebook offline and would like to change it back (it takes up a lot of memory and I just want the one notebook related to this trip to be offline for now).

Also, I was reading in another thread about people discovering that even though they had designated a notebook to be offline, they couldn't access the content. Are people still having a problem with that?

In v8, offline Notebooks is controlled in User > Settings > Notebook > Offline Notebooks

I would check  selection of notes before going offline permanently.  Just disconnect the device from the internet and look at the note

...and allow plenty of time for the local notes to be downloaded to the device - like about 12 hours if there are a lot of notes.

... and if it is a limited number of notes create a new notebook, move the notes there, and then make that notebook offline.

Still not finding it. When I'm in Evernote itself I see File, Edit, View, Note, Format, Tools, Help, and so far have not found a pull down menu that says User>Settings>Notebook>Offline Notebooks

If I sign into my Evernote account and then click on the arrow by my user name and then select Account Settings, there is nothing that says Notebooks. It's a page summarizing my monthly usage, how to give a gift to a friend, my username and address, etc. The column on the left says Account Summary, Personal Settings, Devices, Profile, Reminders, Context Sources, Security Summary, Applications Access History, Connected Services, Purchase History

This discussion is for offline notebooks on iPad/iPhone and refers to the menu settings on those devices

These are the Windows menu items.  If you are talking about taking a laptop on your trip you don't need to do anything since your notes are stored on the laptop.

If you want to have a notebook available offline on your iPhone/iPad you need to go to Account - Settings - Notebooks - Offline Notebooks and adjust the settings, on your iDevice.

Thank you, hadn't even thought of going to my phone menu! Was just thinking it would be part of a master menu on my Evernote account. So now I'll tag a note with instructions for making an offline folder for the next time I need to do this.

No problem.  It has to be done a the device level because each device could have different offline notes.  

I have a full offline set on my iPad, but only selected notes on my iPhone
