Level 5* GrumpyMonkey 4,314 Posted July 25, 2014 Level 5* Share Posted July 25, 2014 As some of you may know, Apple has opened up their new Yosemite operating system to Mac users for beta testing. I would strongly recommend that you do not try it unless you have multiple backups and another machine to work on in case of a serious problem. In addition, you may not be able to get much help from Evernote support, because Yosemite is still in beta. One user has already reported a pretty important drawback to using Evernote with the Yosemite beta.https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/62180-spotlight-search/ If past precedent is any indication of future practices, Evernote developers will not be doing much to make the current version of the app function perfectly with each beta version. Partly, I suspect this is because the betas are a moving target and it would be a waste of time and resources to try and adapt the app to something that Apple is just going to change again in a few days. It is also possible that Evernote developers are working on an entirely new version of the app (this is baseless speculation on my part -- I have no inside knowledge), so they have no need to adjust the current one to Yosemite. This is unsolicited advice and you should feel free, of course, to be a guinea pig for Apple if you would like (it is a rare opportunity to work with the beta as a non-developer). Here are some tips from Macrumors about beta testing with Yosemite:http://www.macrumors.com/2014/07/24/os-x-yosemite-first-impressions/ Please do consider multiple backups, though, in order to avoid any trouble.
