How many notes can I have?

Post by tommc »

I'm new to EPIM. I want to eventually move several years of journal entries into the EPIM notes from other apps. Is there a limit to how many notes I can have? Thanks!

Generally speaking the limit is space on your hard drive.

Practically speaking there are some limits, if notes get too long it can cause a lot of issues. Once they hit 2 million words it renders EPIM mostly unusable. However if you are dealing with smaller sized notes then most computers should be able to handle tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands with out too much trouble.

Hopefully the dev team is working on getting out some of the pains with larger notes, and larger databases in the millions of items, as there's no real reasons it should be an issue for EPIM given it's database driven nature, but for now I'd say you could probably consider a good general ballpark soft limit of 500,000 words per note and 500,000 notes per note tree good practice.

I use vr. 11 free, and my Notes files has only 8.168 KB. Now, all things I add to Notes, the programs eliminates those things I've added!!!
Is that a bug, a feature, a limit in the free version??

Sorry, I was not sure which group to put my question in.
I beg you pardon.
