Lancashire Lad 2 Posted December 18, 2014 Share Posted December 18, 2014 Can someone explain to me why, whenever Evernote is updated which seems at times to be every few weeks we have to go through unnecessary effort? OK, what am I referring to; Examples1. I just logged into Evernote Clearly in my Firefox Browser. Because there has been an update since I last used it to either Clearly or to Evernote I have to fill in my login and password once again. So I go to my password manager and copy my username, then fill it in on the clearly popup box. Then I return to the password manager and collect a copy of the password only to find on returning to the popup box that the username has dissappaered! So I need to fill in my username manually as the password is far more complex every time there is an update. It sounds trivial but when it keeps happening and when you don't need to mess around like that with the big boys (Google, Microsoft etc) alternatives it gets to be a drag. 2. I then go to Skitch and want a copy of a website, should be a few seconds work, but no. Same old problem, because of yet another update I have to fill in my details all over again in skitch for it to function with Evernote! 3. With every other program I use regularly on my desktop, when they are updated it makes no difference to the shortcut icons I have placed in to my startup file. However, not Evernote! Each update means I have to destroy the last shortcut and create another one from the new icon! By the way, its not enough that Evernote put a line in the startup because it just opens the program minimised and I like all my continually used programs to be opened maximised at startup. I have no issues with the other programs that I open this way. If it was a one off it wouldn't be noticed but its every few weeks at times, whenever an update, however tiny is issued. Yet you don't have these annoyances listed above with other programs. I don't have to remove old shortcut icons to things like Skype, google drive, twitter etc. I love the idea of using a progam which is not in the control of one of the big companies and have stayed loyal therefore up until now but when a friend running a small business recently told me he was moving to Google Keep because of having to go through the process of signing in and supplying passwords to each part of Evernote for all 8 desktops at work with each update I realised I too am close to giving alternatives a try even if they don't sound nearly so productive.So again, is there a justifiyable explanation to this seemingly unnecessary annoyance which I am just unaware of at the moment?
