As far as I know 2) is already back,  3) has viable workarounds and 1) is never going to happen.  Your point being?

I thought my point was pretty clear. Without those things (and if #2 is back, I missed it), the new version is a non-starter for me. This is a thread on missing features, and I posted what I miss.

About the list: I don’t see a miss with the Fujitsu ScanSnap either.

I am running an ix500 with ScanSnap Manager on my Mac, and it works fine with EN. Import folders further improved scanning as well.

The only ScanSnap scanners that needs an action are the old „Evernote edition“ scanners. Their firmware is not supported any longer by Fujitsu (as all of them are out of production since a while). However they can be updated to a standard ScanSnap, and from that moment will receive the same support as the standard model.

Who does not want to switch the firmware stays with the lack of modern software - out of his own decision not to use an official upgrade.

Local notebooks will not return, and this was clearly communicated in the initial v10 release notes.

I just wrote this to Evernote:
I have Evernote 7.14 on my old iMac, but when I downloaded a new version for my new iMac I got 10,17.6. Confusing because the old iMac says I have the latest version. Then I noticed a few things, none of which I like. The new version will not let me access customer support, though I pay for Evernote Plus. The tags are down below, which I don't like. I am used to seeing them all above and it makes them an extra movement to put in, and I don't see a way to change it. The sidebar font is small and dull/grey and I don't see a preference to change it. And where is the sync button? Also, the new one has a bright green Share button and an Only You button that does nothing. I don't want either one. The Add Note button is way at the left which will make it harder to access when I have several apps open. What shall I do when I trade in my older iMac? Why would you make an upgrade that gets rid of so many good things? Can I go back to an earlier version that will work on my new iMac? 

I did try downloading the "Legacy App" from their page, (tried finding 7.14 also). I doesn't work on my new iMac.

Legacy should run, through Rosetta.

v10 is different, so take your time checking it out. There are changes, but not all changes are negative. It is however not feature complete. I use legacy for some that are still amiss in v10.

You can try support here:

 
The ticket type "Account" should be open for all users, and allow you to check out your access to features.

On the iOS version is doing great and I like the features provided but in Desktop version, I still prefer the legacy Evernote.

My suggestion, I think what you need to improve are:

  1. The "search engine" sometime I can't find my documents even with the correct key words
  2. I think improve the search method where having a build-in A.I like what Google did in their search for new movie.
  3. SYNC issue - e.g. sometime I notice my image disappear from the document. Prefer at least Evernote keep latest copy in your history so I can retrieve if there is any issue occurs.

For timing being ... I stay with the old one.

What new mac do you have? I have a 2019 iMac i9 and 7.14 works fine.

The GUI decisions are as they are, like it or not. 

Access to customer support is available, maybe a bit hidden. If you use a mobile client, it is easier to find there (in settings). Or use this link:

If you want to use the legacy client, you find it here. But be aware: End of life, no changes, no new features:

Personally I only use it for a few functions where v10 still has no feature parity.

And don’t know from where you got your v10 version: It is not current. Current version is 10.19.2.

After giving evernote the benefit of the doubt one last time in december '20, I'm done with it.
New frustrations and problems every time. Missing features of which is unclear whether they'll be back, etc. Most importantly, they've made Evernote a new juggernaut with a cluttered interface that doesn't help you find everything you're looking for quickly. They just don't seem to get it at Evernote. 
Have you ever heard of Ironic Leap? Simple, intuitive, find what you're looking for quickly. And yes, I am one of the 5% (according to the CEO) crazy people who use tags very intensively.
Tags for apple notes are coming and I like Bear's very simple interface much better.
After 13 years of evernote use of which many years as a premium user .... it is goodbye evernote ...

It's entirely your choice - good luck with your next choice.  I'm still with Evernote - allbeit with their Legacy product - happily using the features in the way I've grown used (or resigned) to over these past several years.  There's no requirement (yet) to adopt the new version - it's an option not a compulsion.  Just sayin'

Yep, same here. Legacy until such time they might choose to completely abandon (as in it doesn't sync) then I will move on as well. This assumes, of course, the current product doesn't improve so its performance is at least equal to Legacy.

Me, too. I'm still using the Legacy version (and on Android.) I'll hold on for awhile longer, and then either jump ship to a different service, or use the new Evernote if it finally matches the old Evernote in features and usability.

Loudly agree as does every other multi-year Evernote user I am aware of.  Let me stress that one aspect of usability is ease of access to common functions - the current "new" Evernote has hidden (moved) some previously easy to find and access functions which makes many long time users see the "new" product "usability" as poor.
