Please fix "Ajax-Type" search feature an other stuff


steve49589

Idea

There are two thing I like about the new version of Evernote. It embeds YouTube videos and I have a faster way to select the color of selected text. That's it.

Search

With the old search, I could start typing immediately into the "Search notes" box at the top right of the app. In an Ajax sort of way, the results would clearly be shown, and the list of notes would be narrowed to only those with the term(s). No such feature on the new version. Have to type out the term and hit enter to see the results.

We also got some suggestions ... "Found notes with" .... with links to additional terms including that word.

The results between the two are different for some reason.

To clear the search requires two clicks now. Click the search icon and then the X. The old version, just click the X and it wipes out the results and you're back to normal view.

The changes to the application in v10 absolutely slowed me down.

Adding Date to Title

I was previously able to do Shift/Command/D to quickly add today's date to the Title of the note. No more. Same with Time. Again, slowing me down.

Adding the Time to a Note

Previously, when I added a time to a note - Shift/Command/Option/D - it always added a space after the time. No more. I need that space back please. Again, slowing me down.

Checkboxes

I use checkboxes on a daily basis to keep track of some quick tasks I need to work through and ensure they are done by the end of the day. They change each day and are added/completed as the day moves along. Previous version required one click to create a checkbox, then I could enter the task, hit enter and an additional checkbox was created.

That feature still remains, but you need two clicks to do it. Using the Insert > Checkbox feature also takes two clicks, but when hitting enter after the item, the system does not create another checkbox. Again, slowing me down.

For now, I've downloaded the Legacy version and I'll use that for the time being until you can at least get the above items changed so it does not take me longer to complete tasks and work in the Evernote environment.

Suggestion: use checklists instead of checkboxes. Checklists replace checkboxes for this type of use case. Requires only one click. Also, you can start a checklist with the keyboard, by typing [] (followed by a space) or by using the Cmd-shift-C shortcut.

The rest of your feedback is right on point, however.

Thank you. [] and the other keyboard shortcut is helpful. Sorry, I was referring to checklists, not checkboxes. I use checklists. Only one click depending on the screen size. I'm running Evernote on a parallel monitor to the left of my main monitor.

In short, I can't quite get the window wide enough to see the checklist option with the new version.

I realize this is an individual issue for me due to screen size limits.

I agree, the screen size issue can be annoying for me too depending on where I'm working. This would be solvable by allowing us to customize the toolbar, but I haven't seen any indication that is in the works. (I hope so.)

One question - does a new checklist item not get created when you hit enter? You mentioned it doesn't for you, but it should.

Yes, it works. I was confused between checkbox and checklists.

Customizable toolbar? Yes please!
