I noticed to have less "not responding" things (when searching, changing from one note to another...) and overall better performance (not seriously tested though), tags seems to sync ok.


Right now i have 20 notes less in work computer compared to home....have to look the reason...

I would add that the main category headers on the left bar: work chat, shortcuts, notes, notebooks, ect all appear to be a little too large based on everything else around them. It would recommend a slight size reduction for those headers as most everything else, including the items below the headers, size wise looks ok. Just the headers look too large.

The version renders blurry text even when it's running on the same display it used to run on without scaling (just a normal HD monitor, not high DPI).  I tried enabling the Windows compatibility mode "disable display scaling on high-DPI displays", which fixes most applications with this problem, but Evernote ignores this option and renders exactly the same.


I suppose Windows 10 might fix this problem, but that's too long to wait.  Evernote needs to implement the compatibility mode.

I want to reiterate what has already been said here, on the new Windows client text and the interface in general looks absolutely horrible! I have the Surface Pro 3 and now the interface is scaled correctly but everything is jagged and blurry. I have tried all available system fixes but nothing works, it appears Evernote needs to fix this. I have to use Windows for work and I pretty much live in Evernote but you guys obviously don't care about your Windows clients. The windows 8 touch app is just a piece of garbage and the desktop app is atrocious. At home I use Mac exclusively and Evernote is elegant and gorgeous,  it's apparent that Evernote couldn't care less about it's Windows clients and customers. I think it's time to give equal attention to the 2 most widely used platforms and figure out how to fix this nightmare. I absolutely love Evernote, I have been a loyal user for many years but this is getting annoying and I hope you guys are listening to this.
