Hello People of Windows!

We have an RC that includes the ability to copy notes from Personal Notebooks to business notebooks. We also fixed a few bugs related to business tags causing sync issues.

The issue with saved searches in the favorites bar should be out soon. Please let us know if there are any issues you run into.

Happy Holidays!

Watchman, we haven't been able to reproduce your issue. Have you filed a support ticket?

still does not sync until after a manual sync is done. Then the sync works fine.

Haven't checked all of my laundry list of issues that I've reported in previous betas (I know I'm a pain, dlu :)), but this issue is new to me or maybe I didn't notice it before:

* Make a stack that contains only joined notebooks

* In the notebook list, click on the stack. The note list now contains only notes from that stack, as expected.

* The tag list header now shows "Tags From personal", and the tag tree contains my normal set of tags if I have "Show all tags" enabled, or no tags if I have "Hide unassigned tags" enabled, but in either case, it shows no tags from the joined notebooks.

* Click on one of the joined notebooks, and the tag list header changes to "Tags from <the joined notebook's name>", and only tags from that notebook now show

* If you save this as a saved search, you get the same behavior

Seems inconsistent to me. It's not clear to me why the tags shown in a stack containing only joined notebooks wouldn't show tags from the notes in joined notebooks contained in the stack. I don't really see the value in that.

You still get stuck in the Business Library and the only way out is to click on a notebook to get out. Any other shortcut on the favourites bar or hotkey doesn't work.

I also have a question about the dropdown menus in the Favourites bar. Currently there are 3 different options that you can use, I also have an old pinned "Notebooks" dropdown that still responds to the shortcut, and shows ONLY my notebooks.

Will this be changed at some point, and will there be more shortcuts for the different items?

Worth mentioning as well, I have had a couple of crashes in the last couple of weeks or so. Other than telling you that I have sent the info/error report as requested by the message, I have no other information about it. Will keep watching.

Because of known problems with Outlook (2007) clipper and Firefox clipper just thinking using the RC version for Windows.

  • when usingRC version will there be later on problems when using the release version in German?
  • switwching to RC version means uninstalling the installed version?

Have a nice Xmas!

If you update to the RC, you can still use all of the GA/public releases later on. You can simple install it and it will upgrade you without having to do a manual re-install. We should have a GA release soon.

jefito,

Thanks for the report - ticket #5757 has been filed.

For the folks who don't speak computerese, (myself included), I try to avoid the acronym jargon.

I've been storing some of these acronyms in an Evernote note for reference.

RC means Release Candidate.

It is more robust than a Beta, but not ready for Public Release

And GA means General Availability.

Thanks for that. There I was thinking I was the only confused Evernoter!

@Mr.Note: This hasn't happened on my machine, nor have I seen it reported. You should check your Activity Log to see if there's any clue of what's going on, and probably open a support request.

Thanks, jefito for replying. I wonder if you're have deeper knowledge in the product?

From my understanding - any product I'm using I expect to have it just works, right?! Looking for the clues in Activity log...mmm... that might be also a good idea probably to look at the code itself, why not? So, the next step is apply for help to support. Unfortunately, that option doesn't work today...al least for non-premium users. Here is the link and you can try by yourself,

Anyway, thanks again for taking care of that

I'm running it fine as well. I suppose, if the problem is that serious, the easiest solution is to uninstall and reinstall using the public release version. Make sure, of course, that you have a backup, you are synced, and all of that.

Support inquiries for premium users are guaranteed a response in one business day, but there's no guarantee that a free user won't get a response in that timeframe either. So because this is pretty clearly a case for technical support, and even though you may not get a response right away, it would be a lot better if you did open one now rather than delaying, because that will put you in a higher spot in the queue. Meanwhile you can try to get answers in the forum, and maybe that helps sooner, but it's harmless to put in a request now.

Hi. I think I found a bug moving notes from business to personal. It looks to me that it is confined to Windows.

The usual tag-keeping bugs that occur when using shortcut buttons of saved searches pinned to the menu bar are still unfixed. They were mentioned in the threads for the last two beta releases.

Couple of bugs related to searching. This is in the 4.6.1 (7860) Public release. Behaviors that were surprising to me are marked in italics.

1: All My Notes : search inconsistency

* Drag the "All My Notes" entry from the Notebook panel to the Favorites Bar.

* Favorites Bar tool says "All My Notes"

* Click on "All My Notes" in the Notebook Panel. The Search Info notebook dropdown displays "All My Notes", and the note list displays only notes that are owned by the user (i.e., are not in Joined notebooks or Business notebooks)

* Click on the new "All My Notes" in the Favorites Bar. The Search Info notebook dropdown displays "All Notes", and the note list displays only notes that are owned by the user (as above) plus notes from Joined notebooks.

2: Stacks of Business Notebooks (found this in I was looking for a way to isolate only Business notebooks in a saved search)

* Make a stack of business notebooks (I just put all of mine in one stack). Say that I've named it "MyBusinessStack"

* In the Notebook panel, click on your new stack. All notes appear.

* Drag your new stack to the Favorites Bar. Rather than displaying the stack name, it displays the name of my notebook in that stack -- I think this is similar to the known behavior of stacks that are dragged onto the Favorites Bar

* OK, so reset by clicking on your new stack again. The business notes display correctly.

* On the search panel, open up the notebook dropdown, and lo, there is an entry named "MyBusinessStack"; open that up and there's an entry at the top named "All Notebooks in "MyBusinessStack"". Click on that, and no notes show.

* OK, click on your new stack again, all notes show correctly.

* On the search panel, open up the Saved Search Properties dialog. Search query shows as "stack:"MyBusinessStack"". Great. Click OK to save. Click on that saved search: no notes appear.

3: "All My Notes" in the search Info notebook dropdown. Just noticed that this was added. Unfortunately...

* The "All My Notes" item in the notebook panel shows all notes from Owned notebooks only in the note list (as above). The status bar at the bottom of the window shows "Notes: 3214"

* Click on the "All My Notes" entry in the search panel notebook dropdown. The selection in the dropdown now shows "All Notebooks", and the note list reflects this. In addition, the status bar now reads "Notes: 4594 of 3214"

Think that that's all for now. Happy to go into greater detail if any of the above is unclear.

While you're at it, I may have one for you ;)

If I create an audio note, and leave the note black other than the recording, it doesn't save. When you save it, it just disappears. The snippet shows audio, and any edit to the note, will remove this and just convert it to a text note only.

@Scott -- I was able to replicate this as well. Finally got around to trying it this afternoon.
