android (Archived) Can't open notes...

Recommended Posts

Every time I try to open notes in a particular folder, I get the following error:

java.lang.IllegalStateException: can't declare any more prefixes in this context

Notes in other folders work fine. I tried renaming the folder on the desktop and syncing, and no luck. Same error.

Any ideas?

Can you say the name of the notebook that causes this problem?

Thanks

I'm seeing the same problem. Can't say whether it's folder related.

Problem started after I'd upgraded to the latest Mac Evernote (v 1.8.0)

Same issue... only on a couple notes that were created on my Macbook AFTER upgrading to latest version. now when opening on my Googly Android 2.1 Nexus 1, they give me this error message...

java.lang.IllegalStateException: can't declare any more prefixes in this context

Tried to delete the notes and recreate, same issue. Tried to uninstall re-install on mobile, and on mac (same versions), same issue. Tried yelling at my computer AND my phone, same issue. Tried a peanut butter sandwich. Less hungry, but problem still existed.

**UPDATE 04/10/2010 7:21PM MST**

SOLVED THIS ISSUE. Uninstalled Evernote 1.8 off my Macbook, installed 1.7.2. Synced to Android, still broken. Deleted the affected notes, recreated, and then synced to my Nexus 1. They opened without the error.

This seems to point to Evernote 1.8. Any messages created or edited in 1.8 cause the java error when opening on (so far) Google Nexus 1 (Android 2.1), HTC Dream (Android 1.0), and HTC Magic+ (Android 2.1) with latest versions of Android mobile.

God I wanna be an Evernote developer. I'd rock :) And I'm available. Quick, snap me up before Google does.

Looks like the way to go until Evernote fix the problem. Where can I find earlier versions of Evernote for Mac?

I'm having the same issue with notes I've created recently. Help!

Thanks for such a great product.

If you are seeing this IllegalStateException when you try to open a note on the Android after creating/editing notes in either our Mac client version 1.8.0 or the Windows client 3.5.3, please open a support inquiry at the bottom of:

http://www.evernote.com/about/contact/support/

We believe that the new note style improvements on the desktop clients may be confusing the Android client, but aren't sure which specific issue. So we'll want a little help to see what type of note is causing the issue.

Google "download evernote 1.7.2 build 76128" And you will get tons. keep trying until you find an active link.

In general, it's not safe to use one version for a while and then try to go back to a previous version. The client may change the local database and search indices in a way that wouldn't work properly if you tried to run an older version of the software.

Well Dave when the new version / build is inherently FLAWED and you can't create or edit messages on it without it crashing your phone? I guess SOMETHING has to be done.

Going back to an older version is NEVER ideal, but when a product like Evernote becomes part of my personal and corporate life like it has? I have no choice but to do what I can to make it work.

I have literally HUNDREDS of notes in multiple notebooks, and reverting back one build created no problems for me. Of course your mileage may vary. Mine didn't.

I've confirmed that the Android client currently has a bug in opening notes from the recent clients. For now, you can view these notes from the web browser on the phone at http://www.evernote.com/m

but we're looking into an Android fix asap.

Thanks

I realize we are just waiting at this point, but I wanted to go ahead and add a comment to please hurry. This is completely messing up my workflow I use Evernote for.

Evernote is also important to my work now too. I just fell back to the 1.72 version on the Mac, re-entered the last few notes I'd made (since the Mac upgrade) and everything is working fine again. I think I'll wait until 1.81 before switching back.

Many thanks for the mobile link, that will do for now, but cannot go back to 1.72 as too many notes since 1.8.... I guess could copy and paste, but figuring out modified notes would be a pain. Please fix quick!

Thanks,

Dave

@engberg: What's the status on this? It's been festering for a couple weeks, and makes my (paid pro!) Evernote subscription all but useless. Is there any ETA?

I'm having the same issue. Looking forward to the fix.

Thanks.

WHERE IS THIS FIX???

I'm getting seriously annoyed, and I can't believe Im saying this, but I'm actually considering canceling my pro account and going with 3banana. Come on guys, this has gone on too long.

Thanks again for the reports. The root of the problem appears to be a dependency in the OS that we're relying on that we need to throw out and replace with something else. This is bigger than it should be (it affects more things than we'd like), so we're still in the early testing phases of our solution. We're hoping to have the fix out, soon, however. (My primary phone is a Droid, so I hear you...)

Thanks

Dave, please let me know if you need a volunteer to test any fixes you have. Evernote is essentially useless to me in the current state, so I have nothing to lose.

After a month of my workflow being goofed up due to this bug, I took the advice of others and downgraded to 1.72. I then opened each note created since mid-march, and made slight changes- say, an extra space at the end, etc. Now it's happily syncing to my Droid, and my blood pressure is considerably lower.

I'm also looking forward to a solution to this problem — QUICKLY. I used to use Evernote on my Droid all the time. Now, I'm thinking that I shouldn't have told everyone how handy it was. Added bonus: This error started popping up when my master's project was due. That wasn't so fun.

I'm having the same issue. It looks like it's been a reported bug since 2008... and still no fix yet? This is extremely frustrating.

MantheiDesign -

The problem started a couple of months ago. I think you're looking at the dates that people created their accounts on the forum, not the date that the posts were made.

The current beta fixes the problem: http://s.evernote.com/androidbeta

We hope to release this as a "full" release version 1.4 this week.

Thank you for the beta, Dave, it's working great for me now! By the way, if I find bugs with the beta how would you guys prefer to be notified?
