    Default Helllllp!.... I'm having a blonde moment of titanical proportions

    I was on a job. Taking notes using S Notes and my S pen. Got home, looked for my notes, saw that they were on S notes and Evernotes so I clicked save and it saved on my clipboard. Deleted from S notes, realized that also deleted from Evernotes!!! And now I can't find a way to access my clipboard, wtf?!
    How do I retrieve my notes from my clipboard? Please? I'm panicking here, this is a huge job!

    Ok, I'm in deep doodoo. I opened a text and access the clipboard by holding the microphone key at the bottom of the keyboard. But while I can see the page I saved, I looks dark and I cannot retrieve it or access it in any way. Aww man I'm in real trouble now.

    Have you opened snote and held down with your finger until paste pops up and tried pasting?

    Nothing happens when I hold my finger down... WTH is happening to my Note Pro???

    EDIT: I tried it again and what I got was properties, cut, copy and delete. No paste.

    Thats why the transition was strange for me on a tablet you had to get an app which serves as the trash bin to recover things... maybe theres another way.

    I've been on it all afternoon long to no avail... I think it's hopelessly lost. I can't begin to tell you the trouble I'm in, now. I rely on my notes 100% for work, this is a catastrophe.

    Sorry for your loss. It's the issue reproducible? I'm wondering how your note wasn't saved.

    I thought the snote was automated backup unless you are in multi window mode? You also said Evernote. Have you tired searching Evernote for any of the words in your notes? Sometimes I do not see a note, but when I search for it, it comes up.

    Using a file explorer, go to s note data, as seen in the picture. If it did auto save, or you saved it with a name, you should be able to see it here. If you did not name it, it should have saved by date name, which I circled in pic below.

    Hopefully this will work for you. Access Evernote via the web version - NOT a client version such as Windows, etc. On the web version there will be a Trash folder that should show the deleted note even if you deleted it via SNotes. Within that trash copy of the note you can either get what you need there or click the "Restore Note" button. If you restore the note and then sync Evernote and SNotes, your note should be availale again via both SNote and Evernote client apps.

    I just went through this cycle as a test and it all worked.

    Good luck!

    Actually... it looks liked the Windows client has the trash folder too. I didnt realize that. If you don't find it there then this is a mystery to me.

    So the lesson to be learned for the rest of us is that once S-Notes is synced with Evernote then the sync truly means that if one deletes a note it's trashed on both sides?

    Luckily theres a trash folder in Evernote. I wonder what would have happened if the deletion occurred before evernote did any syncing with the cloud.

    I was really freaking out, I could have lost that job and it would have had huge consequences. Lesson learned: I now can use Evernotes without fear, lol.

    I'm glad it all worked out. You were pretty clear that those notes were important to you.

    I'm also making a shift to taking all of my notes on the Note Pro as opposed to paper. I started with SNotes and have changed to LectureNotes.

    Same here. I need to set up drop sync though for lecturenotes. It's too bad they don't natively support cloud storage yet.

    Can you tell me the difference between Evernotes and Lecture Notes? Why do you like it better? *I might as well learn, while I'm at it, lol*

    Having tried Evernotes own handwriting features, S-Note, Papyrus and LectureNotes I am now stuck between LectureNotes and Papyrus. I've purchased both and I keep wanting to go to Papyrus because it's interface is just cleaner but LectureNotes has a lot more features, its just clunky for me to be diving into menus to get to them.

    In terms of the differences lets see.

    S-Note - works well on the device itself and now syncs with Evernote but IMO thats about as far as it goes. If you need to be able to utilize those notes on other devices like a computer or print them then issues regarding working with the proprietary format are bound to come up. Export to PDF is supported but only to local storage, whereas export to Google Drive goes immediately to a proprietary .spd file that only S-Note can read. Working with the S-Notes files that are exported in PDF format requires you to manage the files yourself and once you bring the PDFs into your computer the format of the pages is weird (they're not standard paper sizes). On top of all this the syncing with Evernote really is clunky in the sense that what you see in Evernote on your PC is a lower resolution image representation of the pages of your notes.

    Papyrus - works similar to S-Note in allowing you to work with objects and take notes with various pen styles. Expands upon the page setup to include various paper sizes. Adds cloud support with automatic backup to Box or Dropbox at set intervals (the interval options suck, the most frequent auto export frequency is every 12-hours so if you need to copy a PDF of your notes to your computer quickly you'll have to manually export or dive into the settings menu and force an auto backup to the cloud).

    LectureNotes - builds upon the features of Papyrus by adding more customizations. There's far too many to list, I suggest tyring out the trial and seeing for yourself. One neat feature that others do not have is layer support for having up to 3 maximum layers which makes it easy to move objects around if you plan ahead while you're taking notes. Layers are important when pasting in screen captures and images because once pasted into your note these objects don't behave the same way they do in S-Note or Papyrus. In order to manipulate them you must use the marquee tool so being able to isolate them on a different layer is going to save a lot of frustration when trying to manipulate pasted images later as one fine tunes their notes. LectureNotes doesn't natively auto save to any cloud services so one would have to set up another application to assist in that. I believe Dropsync should work fine though and thats where i'll be headed with LectureNotes. LectureNotes does allow you to select where files are saved which will help in setting up a workflow that works for me. Until I setup a 3rd party application to handle my file management what I'm doing is exporting to PDF and sharing those PDF files to Dropbox manually.

    Hope this helps.

    I'll add my thoughts between Evernote, SNote, and LectureNotes. I haven't given Papyrus a chance.

    To me, Evernote is very different from SNote and LectureNotes, making it an AND situation rather than an OR situation.

    I use Evernote for tracking reference materials and lists. I don't like it at all for taking notes. It is also good for sharing materials with someone else - my wife an I have a shared notebook for things like what we need to pick up from the store.

    As far as SNote vs. LectureNotes, there is a big difference. SNotes seems very limited for my needs. The one thing I like about it is I can easily access and update the same notes on my tablet (Note Pro 12.2) and phone (Note 3). That's about the limit of what I like about it.

    LectureNotes on the other hand is making my transition to digital note taking easier. I historically took most of my paper notes on two forms: 1) a daily tracking form for certain time tracking notes, call logs, and miscelleneous things throughout the day and 2) general meeting notes using a form to track topics I want to cover, general notes, and action items.

    LectureNotes lets me use an image of those forms as the background image on different notebooks. Now, I'm writing on the same form just in digital format.

    I'm not suggesting a duplication of my paper workflow in a digital format is the best solution, but it is making the transition easy.

    I use Lecturenotes the same way. I use it a lot for my genealogy research, so I downloaded a family group sheet and use that as a background image in Lecturenotes. Then it's just like writing on a "proper" form. It's a very versatile app. All it's lacking is the ability to sync.

    As for SNote - I hated it on my 10.1s and I hate it on my 12.2

    I'm currently trying Google Keep and Sketch for Keep and so far I'm pretty happy with it.

    Thanks, guys, that was very informative.
    Up to now I've been using S Notes and Evernote though I had never realized I could access Evernote from the website, duh.
    I think I'll experiment with everything I just read here and see what suits me better.
    Thanks again!
