Evernote resets to top of note after switching between apps


garumike

Idea

After this last update, I am assuming, my notes auto-reset/scroll back to the top of the note after editing a note. So I can be editing a note halfway through a long note and when I hide the keyboard after edit it shoots the document back up to the top, losing my place in the note. How do I fix this?

"Make" ?

I may have mentioned before...  this is a (mainly) user-supported Forum.  Any noise you make here is just in this hen house.  Evernote will take note,  but they're not obliged to leap into action immediately... or at all...  unless it fits in with their plans and priorities.

Point taken, I don’t want to cause more work for admins and moderators. I completely understand the very logical reasons they may not be acting on this issue, but its becoming frustrating enough that I’ve explored options to move my data off the platform after being a premium user for 10 years. I know, if I don’t like it just leave. It may not mean much to have me walk away, but something is fundamentally wrong when a company stops listening to its customers for so long that they find alternatives. I do plan to stick around a few more months to see if anything gets better and then I’ll take my business elsewhere. I appreciate all you guys do to keep this outlet going for users to learn and share on, keep up the great work 👍🏻

I’m completely agree! 👍👍👍

Go to one of the beta threads and express your displeasure there. 

Total SWAG here but maybe it is related to the purported use of the Electron framework in the new app development so as to have something close to one version of the code.  Any stateless, resource hungry environment is going to be slower and a user PITA when compared to an environment that maintains state with less plumbing.  Web apps seldom run well as desktop apps.  If this is the case I hope EN has some twinkie dust to deal with performance issues.  This train left the station quite a while ago and was already supposed to have reached its destination which may be a clue of sorts.  Hoping for the best.

Still happening. iPad Pro or such mobile devices are replacing laptop for many, and this will be a turnoff for them.

Hello all!

We know this has been a longstanding thread and issue with the current version of the app. We've been hard at work on our new app, which is now in beta.

While it's still a work in progress, we think that this behavior (restoring the note and position in the note when leaving the app and coming back) is much better in the new version. 

If any of y'all in this thread aren't already beta testers and are willing to try it out, we'd love your feedback, especially around this area. 

To do that, first sign up for the beta program here: https://evernote.com/betaprogram

Then, please DM me your email address and I can get you set up. 

Thanks!

Hi Annah, thank you so much for the reassurance you've offered here on this issue. I'm sending you a DM on your offer right now, I'm glad to offer feedback on this.

Hello! I have a feature I would like to request. This is the current state:

 
  • Using evernote on my iPhone
  • Open evernote
  • Search for a note (recipe, in this case)
  • Scroll through, review.
  • iPhone closes after two minutes
  • I re-open the iPhone
  • Evernote has closed the previously opened note
  • To re-open the note I have to search for it again.
 
It is quite frustrating to have to re-search for a recipe every time my phone closes. I love storing my recipes in Evernote given all its sorting features but this causes quite a slowdown and delay when I’m making something. If it would be possible to keep a previously opened note open after the iphone/ipad closes, that would be great. 
 
Thank you!

This has been posted in other threads, that is EN not keeping the state of the last used/seen note.  No movement from EN at this point. 

In the meantime a quick way to get back to the note is to use the Star icon at the bottom of the EN screen.  This will display the last three recent notes plus your shortcuts if any.

It's a known issue with Evernote resetting in IOS

Still a work in progress? We "think" this behavior is much better in the new version? 

Hardly a resounding note of reassurance after 6 years of people complaining about this "feature."

Hey everybody, I just checked out Apple Notes and it is sweet. Let's go!

Hi all - we are aware of this issue and hope to have a fix out soon. This isn't intended behavior. It seems to occur in one of two scenarios when at the bottom of a longer note: when checking a checkbox and when hiding the keyboard . I'll update this post when the issue is resolved. Thanks for your patience!

I'd like to add my voice to the chorus of people making it clear that this is a massive bug that must be fixed for Evernote iOS to be truly functional. I have recently dropped my Evernote Premium directly because of this bug, due to the fact that it causes multitasking to be unusable.

And yes, it is a bug. As evidenced by both the quote from staff above and the fact that plenty of non-Apple iOS apps handle this functionality (i.e. holding position) perfectly fine (e.g. Google Docs).

This bug is a workflow killer and the fix should be a top priority.
