  1. For years, a decade or more for some of us, we have been "Premium" subscribers. We paid to be in the top tier. New features were far and in between, but when they came out we got them because we were Premium. If they had added tasks or calendars back then, we would have got it because we were Premium. If we wanted to export a notebook as a PDF, we chose the HTML version which equated to the same thing. We could do everything the product was capable of. Because we were the top tier. If you wanted something less, but more than free, you got the Plus plan, which apparently some still are on. Now, that is us. Now, we are no longer top tier, we are the one that is better than free. We are Plus. As my COBOL professor said, they changed the name to protect the guilty and confuse the innocent. They couldn't call it Premium anymore, even if they are charging the same rate, because it is no longer premium, it is personal, it is plus, it is the one that is better than free. There is a new top tier and we ain't it. They said they wouldn't raise our rates, but in reality, they did. The rate for Professional is a raising of the rates for the top tier, they downgraded us and are charging the same for it.

  2. Feature Request: Add Outlining Capabilities to Evernote Evernote is great, but it's dying for the ability to create Notes that contain Outlines which are easily collapsed and expanded during creation and in use. One way to implement it would be a switchable editing mode, between standard formatting or outline mode. In outline mode, pressing the Enter key creates a new outline item, and pressing the Tab key changes the current item into a sub-item. Clicking on an item's action icon causes its sub-items to collapse out of, or expand into view. That's the way the Ecco Pro PIM did it, and something simple like that would be a good start for Evernote. The name Evernote implies a product that takes notes -and collapsible/expandable outlines are a huge part of note taking.

  3. I was recently updated to version 10. I have been having large performance issues ever since. I have been an Evernote user for over a decade, since the early days of the service. Over that time I have accrued a large number of notes over several notebooks. I use Evernote on a daily basis for everything from GTD, archiving, technical notes, planning, journaling, and a whole host of other content-heavy applications. The offline client has served me very well during that time. When I quickly (!) needed an answer to a question I could pop open Evernote and find what I was looking for almost immediately. The new v10 client spins for up to a minute or more on many of my notes, regardless of whether I opened the same note just a few minutes earlier. I have a few rather large notes that have yet to respond at all, just spinning for multiple minutes until I get frustrated and close the application. This is making Evernote unusable for me. If the client cannot provide me access to my notes quickly then it ceases to provide a useful function. Waiting for minutes to access reference material that should (and was!) stored locally is a non-starter. When I open my notebooks or search, I need the material to be returned quickly. Otherwise, I have to mentally put down what I was working on when I needed the reference note in order to wait or debug the problem with the EN client. I have found myself copying and pasting my most referenced notes into other applications just so that I can access the information quickly. Having to maintain "quick reference note" copies in another application invalidates the whole purpose of having Evernote in the first place. Please restore offline caching functionality. The notes need to load near instantly and without UI-blocking spinners. Otherwise, the whole point of a handy nearby notebook is lost. Client version: 10.17.6-win-ddl-public (2775) Editor: v126.2.16348 Service: v1.37.8

  5. There are many of us who think all this complaining about price is absurd. It is what it is, thats the prices, I genuinely cannot fathom what complaining and posting spread sheets achieves? Haven’t you already left for the ‘wonders’ of notion? If so why are you here trying to build a case of protest against another firms changes?

  6. U-uh - my favourite wish of "normal" enhancements are Boolean searches... Now we can have it 👍 but for additional money - we have to subscribe to Professional 😞 OK, I like their argument "pay if you want us to really help you in future for sure" - and I will upgrade -- but only if a real professional can work as fluidy and reliable as in the past! As long as EN-10 is crapping my time and resources, I'll stay with Legacy and my personal account. Boolean searches are state of the art in so many systems around the world. EN always has been proud about their search capabilities - to keep being the best should be matter of honor.

  7. I think it's important to point out that this is how companies are developing new products today. Gone are the days where companies spend years developing a full-featured product before releasing it. With the ability to quickly release features to users (instead of having to print and ship CDs), companies now create MVPs and iterate on them based on customer feedback. This greatly reduces the risk that a company spends time and money developing the wrong thing. It's important to gauge user sentiment and market acceptance of what you're trying to create. This is 100% the direction we want to take Tasks. We actively listened to the feedback from the Beta and Early Access users. Key features quickly rose to the top and we are actively investigating how to build them out and improve Tasks. We have no intention of just leaving the Task feature as-is with no further development. Please continue to provide us feedback and we hope to sway the nay-sayers who aren't happy with the first version. It's an evolving product that I think will get a lot better.

  9. Sincerely? It's time to say goodbye to Evernote. They took away a lot of useful features, with the speech that "we need to take a step back to get the momentum to move faster", but all the more interesting features I need haven't come back yet and we don't even know when they will be implemented, even later 1 year of implementing the most buggy version of Evernote in its history. And now, they are launching new plans, costing exaggeratedly more expensive than ever, with fewer features and a buggy version? Good luck to those who stay, now I'm definitely moving to Notion, which has a lot of features that don't exist in Evernote. For encrypted notes, I will migrate to some password manager like Lastpass or Roboform. Keep suffering and paying more doesn't appears to me a intelligent choice. MarcSant.

  10. Turns out that there are two legacy Premium levels (as well as Plus). https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500006213161 and I'm in the one NOT being upgraded to Personal. This is probably a consequence of my long membership of Evernote. Will have to consider my options now.

  11. I think I'm going to go and have a quiet cry in the corner. 😢 I've been paying for Evernote since 2010, and a number of times asked why search did not include boolean operators - such a critical part of search. So to hear (haven't used it yet as I'm only Personal now) that boolean searching is now available but I have to pay more for it feels like a kick in the teeth. To Ian, I am impressed by what you have been doing to make the elephant dance again. After years of no new features we are finally seeing the catch-up happening. But I suspect you are going to lose a number of your long term users with the additional tier of pricing you have introduced. You can already see this in the comments above. To stick with EN for more than 10 years and now not get the features I have been hanging out for is so disappointing. While your organisation was wandering around in the wilderness without direction, the notes ecosystem has exploded. With bidirectional linking still not available in Evernote, and just launching the basics of task management and calendar integration (well done for these they are a good start but not a finished product) you still lag behind other products that have entered the market in the last couple of years. And now you are telling me that to get the payback for the years of loyalty, I have to pay more. I understand your need to be profitable, but you need to retain customers - and retention is cheaper than acquisition. After years of making do with Evernote, I have other viable options. I now do most of my writing in Roam Research. By making, what are for most products, normal search an additional cost item, I will be seriously considering my options with other products. I already use Fantastical and Todoist for calendar and task management (they integrate together really well) and what you offer, even at the Premium level, is basic. Feels like too little, too late. So what are 11 years of loyalty through the bad times worth to you?

  12. I'm assuming that this is partly why there is a 50 note restriction on exporting (as well as whatever technical stuff is going on)... Requires a professional sub. Making it hard to get my data off your platform and to back it up does not endear Evernote to me. This should be the most basic of features.

  13. I feel like i've waited for years for this basic functionality. I love Evernote - and i especially LOVE the Mac update - now the iPad feels like a poor relation. I do EVERYTHING on my iPad. All client notes, all meeting notes etc.. - all taken by hand. I have a combination of GoodNotes - and now use Agenda heavily too for my client interactions. I'm forced to use these apps, because the Evernote one is so bad. I would LOVE to consolidate and do everything in Evernote (and get rid of Agenda) but currently i can't. Please please please. Thx - JH

  14. @janndk You are exactly right! Filtered Notes Widget is a new widget that is coming soon. It's the more powerful cousin of the Notes Widget which will allow you to select the exact set of notes you'd like to see on Home. Users have been asking for it and please know it is coming soon!

  15. I apologise if it seems I am complaining about pricing. This is not my intention. My "complaint" is that the decision that EN has taken about moving Premium users to Personal is an unreasonable step for long term users of the product. I have been moved from the second top tier to the third tier, missed out on new functionality I value now, and will miss out on more functionality in the future by being at that third tier. EN could have put full-rate Premium onto Professional, Plus on Personal and avoided all of this. Instead they have treated Plus and Premium as the same type of user. We're not! I want EN to be my primary tool as I have used it for a long time and have believed in its vision - and I like the new one even more. But I don't like working with a company that treats its customers in this undifferentiated way. One other thought for you - if we don't provide feedback to EN on things we think they can do better, how do they get better? If we don't suggest features that we think would improve the product (like bi-directional linking) how do they get better?

  16. I think the outcry is not the features. It more like "we were the top tier for all those difficult years for Evernote, stuck with you and gave you the breathing room to regroup, reorganize and flourish again. And now, as a reward, we are being demoted to a lower tier, where the new improvements and features will not be coming to" People that have loyalty to a company and product, don't look only for features and price. They want to feel values and respected. Although it's not accurate, it feels like a proverbial stub in the back.

  17. About v10, it is very simple for me: I have installed both on my Mac, legacy and v10. Initially I only tested the waters with v10, worked mostly in legacy. This shifted more and more to v10, simply because I like what I get. The last boost came with import folders. Now I use at least 80% of the time v10. There are days when I don’t start the legacy client any more, because I don’t need it. There are some functions left where legacy is simply better to do the job, but the list is getting shorter. That is my experience, and it clearly speaks for the positive development v10 has taken.

  18. Cause there are folks who find them useful, like myself who finds tasks really handy as I’m involved in a lot of meetings and struggle to keep track of multiple to-do lists. Now I can add tasks to the note in the meeting and find them beside all other tasks in the all tasks screen, thats genuinely useful. Plus if the new focus is ‘remember everything, accomplish anything’ there’s gonna be more features along those lines on the way.

  21. I 100% agree. Advanced search should be a fundamental feature. I can understand they want to make a new plan for professional users. But being able to search in a proper way isn't a feature that only professionals use. Or they should rename Personal to => "Grandmother subscription" Please don't hesitate to give your opinion over here if you agree! I personal(ly) feel betrayed. In the beta for tasks i made the remark you couldn't filter on stack level. This was a problem for me, beceause i did wan't to filter betweek work en home. Wel, now i know why they didn't activate filtering of stacks.... Not a technical issue.

  22. I've just cancelled my Personal subscription to Evernote, on the back of the less-than-transparent price rise they are slipping in whilst distracting us with new features (none of which I find remotely useful, but that's just my take). I'm not against price rises in general, but I disagree with the way all of this has been announced (or not, as it happens). The email I had specifically said no price changes, no nasty surprises. 13 days later and that is exactly what they do. If Evernote had simply said there are new features on the way but to pay for the continual developments they'd have to also increase prices, I would respect them for their honesty. To say they would keep prices the same and then renege on that in less than 2 weeks makes me quite angry. That's on top of a simmering level of discontentment with some ongoing bugs, poor performance and the removal of features I had previously come to reply on. We didn't get a discount when they were taken away, did we?

  23. I completely agree. I fully accept that it is within EN's gift to decide which features should be available at each level. However Boolean search and geographic search seem like pretty fundamental things for a company which, as you say. prides iteself in it's search abilities.

  26. since last update on both ipad pro and iphone, the sidebar and full note list scrolling is bugged. Sometimes the cursor goes back to thr first, other times keeps scrolling in an erratic way, going up and down the list, while recaching previews; others simply visibly lags. Anyways, using the app has become a pain. and there’s not a support mail nor ticket for a paid product?

  27. We're getting well off-topic here, but just to end this mini-saga... My database backup is about 30GB all told. Evernote gets a daily run with a 7-day history, so 210GB total - and I get a weekly system backup including those folders to a different external drive so (in theory) I have a continuing daily history going back for 3 months or so. In honesty I doubt I'd find a backup more than a week or so old... but it makes me happy that I have the possibility! Plus it's all automatic - it would be more hassle to stop doing this and set up a different system.

  29. Okay, so for the 47th time over the last 12 years, I'm back looking to go all in. Well, not all in. One foot is still firmly on the other side of the door, and multiple full and partial backups and redundancies are being maintained, but... I'm starting to like what I see. I had built a dashboard a few years back that I liked, but the Home page has taken it's place. Also, dipping my toes in the waters of tasks. Between Home, Tasks and Calendars, I could see this becoming the One App. There' still a lot to be done, but I think it may be heading in the right direction. I just have to remember that a runaway train might be heading in the right direction, too. Doesn't mean I want to be on it. Now, you guys (you know who you are) make up some popcorn and pull up a chair.

  34. I think v10 has been really good. Yes, there are functions that still haven't made it across the void from Legacy to v10 (Apple Watch support....I'm looking at you!) However, having a much more consistent UI on all platforms makes a big difference. It's also great to have much more regular app updates once again after nearly 2 years of darkness. The time in limbo made me wonder if I should jump ship (I tried every other alternative and none came close to EN) but I am glad I stayed.

  35. Hey Alan, I didn’t think that at all you are right, users need to express their views. My suspicion is when we have users who freely admit they don’t use the product and instead another one are jumping in to stir things up, I am not sure what the motives of such actions are. I can agree to an extent about going from top tier to second. Personally though I try to focus on the features, does professional make any real world difference to my usage needs, to which the answer (currently) is no. I have never been a power user though so perhaps I don’t feel that change as acutely as others.

  37. Dear Forum Members, today I wanted to try the procedure with restoring data from TimeMachine and..... I've got a surprise. When I opened my Evernote Application on the Mac I noticed that my "deleted items" folder was full, all my disappeared notes from last week were back there !!! Please do not ask how this happened because is a mystery to me. Due to this, I will try to restore all my notes from here and not from TimeMachine (even when it will take much longer.... ). In the meanwhile I've also contacted Evernote Support explaining my whole situation but I still haven't heard from them.

  38. It is in the end a basic design that you can’t throw away without a lot of pain. To implement true nesting, EN would have to rebuild the complete application, plus the database, plus the server software. Don’t believe it ? You better do, just learn a bit about how a relational data model looks for the current structure (1:n) and the „fully nested“ situation (n:m). Personally I hope they never try to apply it. n:m means building every access through a chain of intermediary tables, where 1:m (today) means reading an index file. The price in performance is significant, the price in complexity is excessive compared to the gain. My solution is very simple: Adapt to the way EN is working (which means use tags, that are fully nested, on a flat notebook structure), or choose another application.

  39. Honestly, people need to grow up. You paid for a service for years and got value from it. Otherwise I'm assuming as relatively intelligent people you'd have found a service that better suited you or a better price. Paying for a service for years and getting value for it doesn't entitle you to anything and why should it? Did your feelings get hurt because the name of your service isn't the biggest boy's name? Evernote is a business, it exists to make money money for it's owners. The owners have put in place management who they think will maximise this return. The management will pick and choose the features that get added to each tier to maximise their revenue. They might get it right, they might get it wrong, they'll probably do a bit of both. What I'm sure they won't do is make changes because people don't think it's fair.....

  40. I agree with you on this. An upgrade to another level needs to be a permanent step - it is not something that a company should or could easily withdraw. Where we do differ, is in our perception of the value that has been added to the product at the Personal level, and the functionality that we are not getting through Evernote's decision to create the Professional level. This is the issue as I see it. In addition, it sets the precedent that the additional functionality will only fully be available at the Professional and Teams level. Previously, the Premium got all the new functionality, such as it was. So, comparing the new 4 tier (free, personal, professional, teams) licensing with the old 4 tier (free, plus, premium, teams), as Premium users we have: - had some token new functionality, - missed out on new functionality now, and - will miss out on the future functionality that will be added to professional and teams. Every time functionality gets added to Professional, it will remind those long-term Premium users that Evernote sees us as less important customers. So, no. I don't think I should get everything in life. But Evernote needs to recognise who kept the company alive so that it has the opportunity to do what it is now doing. Instead, as @orion_mitchell put it, it has chosen to take an action that feels like a kick in the teeth, now and every time it delivers future functionality.

  41. Hello! Today we released Evernote for Windows 10.18. This is primarily a bugfix release. It is available now via the Windows Store and as a direct download version from our website. If you are already running one of these versions, we are progressively rolling out to compatible devices and the new version will be available on all supported operating systems within 7 days. To learn how Evernote delivers app updates, when you’re eligible for an update, and how to update your Evernote app, visit How Evernote delivers app updates to our customers. New to Windows 10.18 Tasks you create using the global create button (the green circle with the +) will now be added to the note you currently have open instead of the default task note. Fixed highlights: Now you can see a count of how many tasks you've completed out of the total number of tasks in a note. Occasionally, a task would mysteriously disappear from inside a note. This should now be resolved. Some PDF exports of clipped images would not include the image. If you hovered over an item in a scrollable menu, the list would suddenly (and annoyingly) jump back to the top. When attaching files to a note in Evernote sometimes the file extension would be removed. Let us know what you think and we appreciate the continued feedback. We will keep hard at work! Thank you!

  42. Thanks for the thoughtful response. I never had any issues with users who are content with the current EN version. That's of course possible as we all use EN differently and have different system configurations. Like you said, I'm sure these users aren't even paying attention to any of the long forum complaint posts that had gone cold, or online EN reviews. Exactly because I used to be such a user myself. Blissfully unaware. Quite ironic that I’ve only started getting active in the forums on my way out. So no, I wasn’t singling users like yourself out at all. In fact, good for you. I wouldn't wish on anyone my whole ulcer-inducing process of coming to terms with having to migrate, the wasted time testing alternatives but never quite finding one that fits, and almost a year later, still stuck in ‘transit’ mode, juggling between 3 different apps, waiting for just one to catch up so I can make good on my word and finally put this bout behind me. It was just refreshing for me to read another member stating it’s important that the company he chooses to support treats other customers right, so I wanted to give a shout out. Often times while reading forum replies here and on reddit, I wondered aloud to myself why some folks don’t seem to realise if negative posts don’t seem to die down, it is less to do with there being 'a small irrelevant group of entitled whiners and drama queens’, as was often the excuse given, but more telling of the way a company handles problems and its user base. And of course there's always this 'If they can do it to them today, they can do it to you too someday' red flag. I'm definitely aware of these hostile ones too and I'm sorry they've taken their anger out at you. I usually give them a pass though, as I figured their rage was a result of feeling abandoned or ignored by a company they had been passionate about and supported for a long time. I tend to put the blame on EN rather than the users themselves for their poor (and misdirected) conduct towards you, if you ask me 😜

  43. I think @qofmiwok Puts it best And now you will have to be at a "professional" level to use boolean search? It's an insult. You want to give higher features to higher plans, make it actual features like calendaring, tasks, etc. But searchability of your product is sacred and should be in the most basic of plans, or there is no value to having Evernote.

  44. EN did without a lot of things for the past decade that I would consider pretty essential. The massive rebuild over the past two years is evidence that they think the same. Find notes with the words dog and cat = a higher subscription? That's ridiculous.

  45. Right - I already paid for the next 8 months and they don't give me any credit towards the revised plans and pricing. No way I would not get any credit for all the money I already paid EN well into 2022. Come on Evernote... How do we get this corrected? Especially after we started using Tasks and now they are taken away. Amazing that they would take away notes that I created with no access to this data. I've only been a loyal paying customer for over 8 years!

  46. I am also not too happy with this new tier-structure. If they wanted to establish another tier it is probably better to do this now, before they roll out more new features that they can't really take away the lower tiers later. So the timing makes sense, even though I am not sure that the higher price is well-chosen for a "note-and-todo-app"... But more important I really wanted to give Evernote a new chance. I am working with the new version 10 since it came out and I had to deal with many problems in these versions. I took all that on me in order to see how things develop and improve. The fact that some of these finally arriving benefits are now going to be blocked to me as a former "premium" member doesn't sit well with my monkey-brain-part. The way this was communicated in marketing-smoke didn't help either. Why not a "behind the scenes"-video with Ian explaining the decision to reduce premium to a tier-2-customer in a balanced way? These emails may have been (or maybe not) a good way to communicate this to other people, but they weren't to me. I'll continue to monitor Evernotes development and if the "personal"-level feels great by the time my subscription is up I may stay, but at the moment I am not happy with the way all this is handled. (The same is true for stuff like all the reports of people who have problems because they paid in different currencies or were not offered the local rate or situations like the user Alxa explained a few posts earlier. I do care how a company that I pay deals with problems and other customers... He can't access the feature for months because he paid in Evernote points?! And there is no way or you are not willing to bump up his account for these few months so he can keep his work up? And how did he get these points in the first place?)

  47. I have to say I entirely disagree with the op. I am on board with the remember everything accomplish anything idea. What’s the point of data if I can’t in the end be productive with it. I like home, I think it will improve as widgets are added, I love integrated tasks as thats so helpful as I have many meetings and struggle to stay on top of to-dos from them. I’m not looking to debate this as we all have different needs but I’m seeing a narrative of we don’t want all these new features, so I feel I gotta say, no, actually some of us are finding them really useful.

  48. How is searching, which is supposed to be the main reason we use Evernote, a professional feature? I'm pretty annoyed. After years of paying for a stagnant dying product the moment they start investing in it I have to pay for more for standard features. Ridiculous.

  49. The Plus plan has not been offered to new subscribers, but those who were on it have been allowed to keep it. Just some days ago I got an email from Evernote, just like everyone else, that my Plus plan will remain unchanged, and cost the same. I don't need the Personal plan, I just need to keep the same features that were in the Plus plan. And I extended my plan for another year. But now Evernote says the mobile app will not have offline notes for Plus plan. That is NOT unchanged. I have been misled with wrong info from Evernote into extending my existing Plus plan. That is not right. And neither is taking away the features I have already paid for.

  50. Hi all, I’m happy to announce that we’ve made some big improvements and additions to search in Evernote, including new advanced search syntax, Boolean search, and geographic search! New advanced search syntax Advanced search syntax is now more powerful with the addition of a new category of “contains” items. Simply type “contains:” into the search bar to filter your notes by what type of content is in them—like calendar events, tasks, addresses, and more. This article shows the full list of items you can choose from and more info on using advanced search syntax. Boolean search For those who aren’t familiar with them, Boolean terms like AND, OR, NOT, and ( ) narrow down your search results so you can find the information you need faster. For example: “Dogs AND cats” would show you only notes that have both “dogs” and “cats” in them. “Dogs OR cats” would show you notes with either “dogs” or “cats” in them. “Dogs NOT cats” would show you notes with “dogs” in them, but not if they also contain “cats.” “(Dogs OR cats) AND birds” would show notes with either “dogs” or “cats” in them, but only those that also contain “birds.” Geographic search Some people who travel a lot need to find notes based on where they were taken—for example, at a conference, with a client on the road, or on a remote project site. Once you have the coordinates, you can search for notes created on a mobile device (with location tracking enabled) based on where they were created. For example, if you type “geodistance:37.49,-122.22,50km” you’ll see all the notes you’ve created within a 50 km radius of the Evernote head office. (You can also measure in miles and nautical miles.) Boolean search and geographic search are both available to Professional and Teams subscribers. You’ve been asking for these features for a while, and we’re excited to bring them to you today. Together, they make it even easier to find what you need in Evernote. To get started, make sure you’ve updated your app to the latest version. If you have any questions regarding the recent plan changes, please see this article. Otherwise, feel free to start a thread in this forum or reach out to me directly here. Thanks! Shane D.
