(Archived) Feature request: "Conflicting files" resolution utility

Recommended Posts

A conflicting files resolution utility would include two items:

  1. Visible line-by-line comparison of the two synced files, showing differences. (This is usually, at least in my case, at most two or three items/file lines.) This would allow the file owner quickly to copy/paste in order to resolve conflicts. Perhaps even there could be an option to select one version of the file over the other. Then, the option to save, system- and Evernote-wide, the selected/constructed version of the file.
  2. *If* (as is likely) the "Conflicting-file-[date-time]" folder exists, and the conflict has been resolved, then *automatically* delete the folder and its contained file!

Such a feature would avoid much grief for me and, I suspect, for many other "conflicting file" creators!

I 2nd this.  I really like Evernote, but not having an easy way to compare and resolve conflicts is a definite productivity killer.  I have to manually export each note and open them in a comparison tool - in this case the open source, cross platform, kDiff3, then after the conflict is resolved, import the result back into Evernote.  Not optimal.

While that wold be nice, IMO, the better solution is to properly sync your devices before/after editing notes so you avoid conflicting notes in the first place.
