Bug: note suddenly uneditable

Recommended Posts

Hi this is crazy

I edited an existing text note. I added a paragraph of text. I saved with the checkmark, switched to another app, then returned to my note...

The edit tool turns into a grey lock and the message "The note is read-only. It was created in another app".

I have no other apps interfacing with Evernote.

Please advise

Thanks

Hi.  Agree that's weird - can you copy the content of that note into another new note to continue editing?  The content may not have saved/ synced correctly and now appears as incomplete (hence 'from another app') to Evernote.

Hi,

I have exactly the same issue with my Samsung A7 since yesterday. Half of the notes I am editing are blocked as soon as I am saving them. And they can't be deleted (I can put it in the recycle bin, but that's all)

The only solution I found so far is to copy the content of a note manually with copy and paste into a new note and then desintall the app. When I install it again, the "locked" notes have disapeared

Yes copying content to another note works but you lose the Metadata

Hmmn.  That points to a sync / storage issue corrupting the note.  Worth a support request if you can make one.

Just tried to provoke a syncing issue on my iPad, by switching flight mode on and off while creating and editing notes. The iOS client is similar to android because it has no full local database and relies on syncing to the web data.

No problem at all, the notes stayed marked with a green arrow to show they needed syncing until flight mode was off, but they were always accessible and could be edited, while offline as well as online.

Maybe there is something specific to the Android client. So calling in to support should be the next step.
