Lock/block notes

Recommended Posts

Guest Ivano

Hi..

 

i’m wondering Why there’s not a way to lock/block a note in order to prevent it is modified accidentally (event that’s actually quite easy)

Such option could be used when a note is “closed” permanently and there’s non need to be modified further....

Back in 2012, Paul Thurrott's lengthy article of Evernote had the same concern.

"Evernote is not perfect... It doesn't support note locking of any kind, which is a curious omission: Once I'm done with an article, I'd like to know that a future errant keystroke isn't going to wipe it out or edit it in some fashion."

My vote would go for a view/edit mode with view as the default.  I've heard rumors this is in place on the Android platform.

One method I've used to lock/block a note is to convert content to pdf format, however it's not reversible.
Another method is updating the content class field in the database, but it's a complex procedure.
