Few missing things since update to 10




For me, the great thing about evernote has always been because it works well with my scansnap scanner. Fantastic thing. But, with e10, that all seem to have falled apart and I cannot see a way to resolve this.

problem 1. Though I managed to re-point the scansnap to the new e10 executable, when evernote imports things now, it dumps them into an unfindable 'imported notes' folder, with title of the file name. In the old version you could set a notebook, or set it to put it in the notebook you were currently in (that's what I used), and it was great. I cannot find _any_ detailed settings for the new e10, and certainly not this option. Hopfully I am just missing it? The same goes for import of other stuff. I had a right click, send to evernote on my file explorer, which would just sent stuff into the current notebook. No more! :(  How to fix, please?

Second BIG issue for me, search (find for text etc.) no longer works in encrypted texts. I have some lengthy notes that are encrypted. If I 'reveal' then to work on them/read them, I would search for the relevant note using ctrl-f for find. Find loads, but it does not find any text inside the revealed notes. Again, how to fix, please?

Other thing I cannot find, given I cannot find a 'preferences' menu with more than 1 single option on it in this version. How to set start on windows startup. It was just a checkbox in prior version. This version does not seem to have that and does not start with windows.

I'm glad to see evernote finally getting some love, but it looks like some fairly critical for some people features have maybe been dropped. For me, the 2 above things are the different between me subscribing, and not. I hope this just either my oversight (I cannot find the options), or they are due to be added soon, else for me, e10 is pretty useless.

OK, after a few weeks of using v10, or not using it much really, because it made doing everything  I did in the 'legacy' version so much harder, or even impossible, I've reverted to the Legacy version. All I can say is, it's a breath of fresh air. Sure, I was a bit tired of the dated looking interface and sometimes slow search, but having used v10 for a few weeks, damn, the legacy version is the nuts! It handles scanning, especially from Scansnap a million times better, you can search in text (including encrypted/decrypted text), it'll actually start with windows and sync, I can find stuff in the folder lists far more easily, the preview is better, etc., etc., etc.

I've been a paid Evernote user for a very long time. As feedback, all I can say is, Legacy version rocks, v10 is useless to me. I will not pay for it.  I have to at least give Evernote some kudos for not committing suicide and at least releasing the 'Legacy' version. Without that, I am sure users will simply abandon EN with haste. At least with this available it gives EN a chance to catch the new version up with all the stuff the 'legacy' version already does, did, and good old paid loyal users rely on.  What is it they say? It's 10 times harder to aquire a new customer than keep an old one? EN, you really should read up on that one.

I've uninstalled the v10. Honestly, it did nothing for me, at all.
