Lag when typing in tags that start with "s"


DotPdf

Idea

Whenever I type in a tag that starts with "s" on Evernote for Mac the program lags for 5 or so seconds and then finally lets me continue to type the tag.


 


This only happens on Evernote for Mac. It does not happen on Evernote for Windows.


 


I also have already rebuilt my Evernote database on my mac and I have reinstalled my operating system several times hoping it would be fixed - nope.


 


I emailed Evernote support before about this issue and was told that it was "being worked on" however there has been several updates to the mac application that have not resolved this issue. I go through many notes daily and can no longer work on Evernote for mac because the lag typing in tags that start with "s" kills all productivity. I'm hoping that someone on the forums who has a similar problem might be of some help.


 


Thank you for your time,


Jacob


 


Edit: I should add that this lag occurs when typing in a tag in the "click to add tags" field when editing a note (not when searching for a tag).

Do you have a lot of tags beginning with 's'? It is odd that this is a platform-sepcific problem, but it could just be that generating the auto-complete suggestions for  "s" when there is a large quantity of "s" tags could bog the system down.

 

I cannot reproduce this myself, so I can't give much advice.

 

It sounds like Evernote is aware that there is some issue, which is progress. It is possible that it is a tough nut to crack and they aren't likely going to hold up other updates just to wait for this one issue. Perhaps someone else here has some insight or a workaround!

Thank you very much for your reply and I totally understand that this is a hard issue to replicate. I have a total of 7 tags that start with "s" so I doubt that is the issue. I also thought that maybe the amount of notes per tag could be causing it, but it doesn't look like that is the case. One of my "s" tags has over 500 notes associated with it and is under a parent tag that does not start with "s" (and has more notes) that has no lag when typing it.

 

I have a feeling that something just needs to be tweaked in the Evernote for Mac client, but I can't be sure.

Hmm yes 7 tags beginning with S should be easily managed. Indeed sounds like a real pesky little bug! It sounds like you may ahve already done so, but if not, I would suggest opening an official support ticket.

 

Yeah definitely. I submitted an official support ticket a long time ago but I just sent another one to see if this is indeed being looked at. Thanks for trying to help though. Loving the Evernote forums!

I think this is a definite bug in the software as I just installed EN for Mac on a new machine Friday and started scanning documents. There is literally nothing else on this computer except what comes from Apple. I scanned in 31 documents and then began tagging them. After about the 15th document, I started getting a lag whenever I pressed the "a" key as the second letter in a tag. This was within 20 minutes of using EN for the first time with perhaps 1-2 tags created in about 12-15 letters of the alphabet. Hopefully, this is correctable as it totally destroys the workflow process.

Thanks,

Robert

I have the same issue with a very small database (I only started really using Evernote a few days ago) on a reasonably fast, SSD-powered MacBook Pro. So it looks like there’s at least three of us who are annoyed by this.
