How to choose not to synchronize a note ?

Recommended Posts

I've linked a third party app (Xmind) with my Evernote account.

Each time a work and save my mindmap on Xmind, the Evernote's note is updated and my quota (60 Mo free) is almost full.

Thus I would like to choose when to synchronize this special note. Is it possible ? I can't find.

Thank for the help

For notes I don't want to sync, I use a "local" notebook on my Mac.  I understand you can do the same on the Windows platform.

Thanks for the conbtribution. My need is to keep this mindmap available for someone else with whom this note/mindmap is shared. But this person doesn't need the last update (every 5 minutes) which burns my 60 Mo quotas ;-/.

For exemple I would like to update/synch the note/mindmap every week only. Maybe the solution is simply to create a new note every week :-/

I don't know much about Xmind, but I gather you've chosed to automatically sync some stuff (file/pdf/image/text?) with Evernote

Instead of doing this automatically, can you do it manually?
For example, at whatever time/interval you chose - export the file/pdf/image/text or whatever it is
and manually update your Evernote note.

@phils : I'm on Mac.

@DTLow : "doing THIS automatically" you mean the update between Xmind and Evernote OR he sync between my local Note and Evernote's cloud ?

Your suggestion sounds good but how to manually update the note in Evernote's cloud, knowing that this note is often updated (on my computer,local) each time the mindmap changes ?

I'm suggesting
- you turn off the automatic syncing
- at a time/interval of your choosing
        - manually export the stuff from Xmind
        - manually update your note

Darn.  The latest Windows client update includes the ability to set sync frequency on a per-notebook basis, which probably would have been perfect for your situation here. But that's not in the Mac client, at least not currently.

This sounds like a step towards selective sync, but I'm not finding this option.  Where do you see it?

Note that this new option is for shared and Business notebooks, not regular personal notebooks.

Make sure you have v6.2.1.  Go to Tools > Options > Synchronization.  Click on "Show joined notebooks".  Double-click the notebook you want to adjust; that will open a dialog where you can set the sync frequency, among other things.

Thanks for the clarification.  I'm not a business user and don't use shared notebooks much.  Hope this makes it into personal notebooks some day.
