    I have been switching to Apple Notes in which notes do not need times to load (already offline), and local notebooks are always on every device. Sketches are not laggy and in high resolution which can be converted into texts and even links if you like. Notes can be printed too. Widgets and Apple Watch are here. Spotlight can show results other than note titles. Yes, there are only notebooks without tags that Ian Small may think as the most ideal, while Apple can make them into n subfolders. Drag and drop makes moving notes from folder to folder without any steps. And these features do not cost you any except for the iCloud depending on your size of contents. All these features mentioned above are also included on Evernote (especially v8.24.6), but for USD70/year which still does not guarantee you do things faster and better than free Apple Notes, but in the opposite ironically. Not to mention fixing few of the bugs may inevitably lead to other bugs you never think of. Money will buy frustration. Evernote will keep their ears shut when you voice out. Do you think 98% non power users will keep using Evernote? At least Apple Notes is free. At least Notion can bring a sense of satisfaction when you devote time and energy to create a beautiful dashboard.

    Long time subscriber, but any more lost note changes and evernote is gone IOS notes is more functional now. Freaking Evernote not the first major update that wasn’t properly beta tested

    I love updates and new features. I often run beta versions of various apps (but wasn't aware of a beta cycle for v10, if it existed). That said, Evernote 10 is an utter disaster. Feature after feature after feature is either broken or missing. Not obscure features, MAJOR features. Too many to list. (I've posted a few in other threads. I'm a paying user, and this is one of the worst updates of any app in recent memory. Many of us have reported numerous bugs that went unfixed for years. (Literally.) Instead of fixing bugs, you devoted resources to creating this massive update—which is broken from head to toe. I'm reverting to v7, which can easily be found here: https://filehippo.com/mac/download_evernote_for_mac/history/ v7 is buggy, but at least I know where those skeletons are. v10 is downright unusable.

    Hi EN Team, It is glad to have new released. However, ver. 10 have many function that everyday using is missed. It is very inconvenient for user. 1. shift + CMD + D to add date stamp. 2. the attached PDF edited in mac Preview cannot saved back to the note. Only can Save As and drag in again. 3. Cannot drag other note into the note to make link. 4. Index list window only at side, but no more on top of the note. (for laptop with more than 1 working windows, it is too narrow to show the topic on side) 5. Where is the preference setting? cannot set default notebooks, etc. Thanks

    Any chance we could be told what's new on each new update? I have gone through version 10.1.3, 4, 6, and now 7, no idea on whether a reported problem is now fixed or what to look for to test.

    This new version of Evernote, released only days after iOS14 came out (I ran betas of iOS14 before the main release) seems to be a disaster. Once again, they seem to be unable to get it right before a major release (this has been the case for years - I've been a Premium subscriber almost from the beginning of Evernote). Either their beta testers just don't pick up these bugs, or the coders don't fix them. And once again, they change stuff for the sake of changing it - like the Clipper, which now doesn't seem to work at all. See separate thread on Saving to Evernote from iOS. Mine simply doesn't work. No clipped note. Zero. And this is a disaster for me as I source information from both the web browser (Safari) and Flipboard constantly. I can't do that with this new version on iOS14. I don't know if the problem is Evernote, or iOS14, or most likely both together. But iOS14 has been in the works for months, with lots of beta testers, so I can't imagine that the Evernote coding team didn't have access to iOS14. So - how can I downgrade my iOS Evernote back to the previous version, which worked just fine?

    Evernote posted that Import folders were not available yet I still have faith

    For sure. I could very well be confused based upon the volume of posts since the V10 introduction. In any case I have my local notebook exit strategy in place. I think we discussed it before, simple Windows folders with Windows indexing. Works well. Putting off the work for a month or two just in case.

    That might be 100% true, and Evernote might lose a bunch of users because of the delay in getting out a v10 that satisfies enough user needs to create a long-term viable business. It could even be the end of their business if the delay proves to have been too long. I really hope this is not true, as I have been a long-time Evernote user and still prefer it - imperfections and all - to alternatives I've seen. v10 isn't good enough for me at the moment, but I really appreciate I'm able to run v7 in parallel. I don't want to be running v7 forever of course, because at some point it will go away / get too old (and I love the multi-highlighter colors in v10). So I'm focused on boosting signal in these forums for those features I really want to see make v10, and hoping performance and other issues can be worked out with incremental, faster updates moving forward (now that they are working off a generally unified codebase). We'll see if v10 succeeds, but I'm rooting for its success.

    Ditto. Somewhere it is written that if you massage the numbers long enough they will tell you whatever you want. Same folks are saying they surveyed 300,000 users yet the IOS version does not support sorting search results. Really??? Ever try to find something in 100 notes in random order on a phone? And if it is only 2% of the users who use tags why the resistance all these years to implementing nested notebooks? Not meaning to be negative just looking at the data as it is presented and scratching my head. Weird on a good day.

    I watched the Ian Small video like many of you did and my takeaway is that power-users don't much matter to them. There is a sense in which they have come out with an entirely new product, and they will build that one up to add a few features here and there, but it will never reach the level of the legacy version. Power-users are too demanding, too fussy, and probably consist of that now famous "2 percent". Of course, power-users are most likely the ones to pay the $90 Cdn/year for their pro version, some of us with multiple pro-versions. I hope I am wrong, but I doubt it. Any company that puts out a version like this one without any kind of extensive communication about its limitations (imagine business users' surprise!) deserves the ire it gets. Evernote may prove me wrong in the upcoming year, and I hope it does, but the disregard and disrespect they showed long-term pro users will always be remembered.

    He's said in a different recent interview that he's a notebook person (he likes to file notes), and only rarely uses tags when necessary for a note which could otherwise live in multiple notebooks. He also appears to be a Windows / iOS guy, which might explain why Mac and Android seem to be getting a bit of short shrift compared to the pre-Ian-Small era, where the Mac and Android apps were (arguably) superior to Windows and iOS. 😕 Edit: As for the 2% of users use tags, when the denominator is the total population of all Evernote users, including the dormant or very occasional users who may have been invited to collaborate on a single note or only keep a handful of rarely updated notes, then I could believe that number. If one considers the population of active, heavy, paying users, I would imagine the percentage is much higher, high enough that I doubt they would ever consider getting rid of tags.

    In theory, I absolutely agree, and in the last year I have rebuilt my workflow so that I can live (work) without Evernote, as it was becoming clear that the development has changed direction. In this special case, I still hold a grudge, because I used to love that app so much. It was such an effortless way to collect, file, organize and archive everything I need. It matched my way of thinking, if you know what I mean. Now for a while, with every update they change or take away things that came naturally to me. My subscription runs until July next year, and I still hope against hope that something changes for the better.

    I make heavy use of internal note links. They do not seem to work in the new EN 10. I can copy the internal note link to the clipboard. And then I can paste that link into another note. But when I click on the green hyperlink.... nothing.

    @RobinM and to the community: The more I think about this, the more I realize - "shame on us". The warning signs have been there for YEARS that EN was in big trouble. All the executives have jumped. The dev team has been gutted and replaced with a handful of outsourced Javascript kids at an undisclosed offshore location. Support team is made up of 3rd party volunteers. Prices were increased. Features were removed. Bugs keep piling up. The technical debt alone at this company must be staggering. So in the end what we should really be doing is thanking EN for finally giving us what we have all been asking for: A reason to finally hit that emergency eject button. There is no other option at this point. Which is clearly what they want us to do, based on their user-hostile behavior and antipatterns year after year. There is simply no other rational explanation.

    I updated to the new Windows desktop version, this brought my work mostly to a standstill for two days now. And most of my work is organized around Evernote. Now I also have the duplicate notes issue, but combined with another effect which perhaps give you some hint. I was writing in a note and very often it disrupted my writing and jumped to the beginning of the note writing the last characters I had typed there. I had to manually go back to the place where I was writing to continue. This happened a lot, slowing down work considerably. Then when going back to work this morning I saw that Evernote had produced eight versions of the note as a result. Therefore, I have the impression that it has someting to do with syncing during my writing. But what can I do about this? At the moment I am helping myself by working on another computer where the old version is still installed...

    A request has been posted for fonts Here To indicate support, use the vote button at the top left corner of the discussion

    I wants my notes in Helvetica Neue, as they've been for years. Why would you take away custom fonts and force us to use fonts you've preselected? What's the downside of letting us use whatever fonts we want? I'm not against updates. I like new features! I like fresh design! But so far, all this "update" seems to do is (a) take away features we've used (b) make it harder to do things we've done for years. (Or in the case of iOS, requiring additional taps to do what we used to do with fewer taps.) Taking away features is NOT an upgrade. This is getting more and more disappointing. —A paid user

    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.

    The tool for the tables is not operational in the current iOS version. It is there, which makes one believe that the function is already implemented. But there is nothing behind it, except placing a standard table into a note. There are no editing capabilities. EN says they will implement a full table functionality with a later release. As always, there is no roadmap or schedule. It is one of the many missing items that make me believe this release was simply rushed on us instead of thoughtfully rolled out.

    Admitting failure can be an issue. Though it would be a solid gesture until the issues are addressed in V10. Might give folks some hope for the company and how it feels about its customers. Them that need it could go backwards for a bit. EN controls for how long.

    I've come to terms with Evernote offering a new product I can chose to continue with the old product, or switch to the new product For now, I'm continuing with the legacy version I'll take another look at v10 when the work-in-progress is completed

    I see syncing 'freeze ups' still exist. I opened Evernote 10.04 on iPhone 11 Pro this morning and didn't pay attention to if it last synced up or not. proceeded to type up 2 separate notes into my inbox. jump back to inbox. not there! realize the sync freeze up occurred, force closed Evernote and restarted. of course, notes not there. THIS IS DATA LOSS! Please fix - you've left a good many users with Evernote in an unusable state at this point in time!

    I can understand your frustrations. I've tried Notion and its very flexible. It requires a lot of work to get it doing what you need. I'll stick with Evernote for the time being. It would be great if a company representative could respond to the numerous concerns that loyal Evernote users are raising. It would be a great pity if Evernote were to lose lots of customers simply because they don't respond to the concerns being expressed. It strikes me as a huge waste of money to upgrade the product only to see users disappearing out of the door.

    I've participated in the Preview and the Beta programmes for this release. I've noted bugs when I've seen them, responded to the feedback questionnaires and posted observations to the Preview and Beta forums. I'm really surprised to see this release go live when the most recent beta didn't seem nearly ready. It feels as if this release has been rushed rather too rapidly. Perhaps to catch up with the iOS release? It doesn't even feel like a robust Beta, let alone a full release. I appreciate this is a "journey" and improvements can still be made, etc. etc. but shouldn't the app at least... you know... work? I made a list of some of the basic functionality that I was waiting to see fixed. I say "fixed" because these are all things that already existed in the previous release and have not been implemented in 10.0.10. Tabs! - Imagine using a web browser and the developer removed the ability to open more than one tab at a time. My mother only uses one tab in her web browser but I suspect she might be in the minority. This was highlighted early on in the beta programme and seems to have been ignored. Local links - Again, highlighted early on and seemingly ignored. Not only does it seem impossible to create a local link to a note, existing evernote:// links no longer work. Imagine if you were a paying Evernote customer (I am) who'd created a lot of links in other applications (I have)! No need to imagine, I guess. So all the carefully-crafted links are not honoured. Why take this functionality away? Or why send out a product before it has this basic functionality included? </rhetorical> PDF Annotation Summaries - I annotate documents, research papers etc. Previously, annotations were summarised at the top of the note. Really useful stuff! That's no longer available. Not only that, my existing annotation summaries have lost all recognisable formatting. Highlights in the wrong places, text annotations pointing to the wrong text. Web Clipper - I'm not sure what's happened here but the web clipper, which used to be excellent and so much better than any competitors' solutions, is now formatting clipped content in strange and unexpected ways. What was a predictable behaviour is now a lottery. Creating a Table of Contents from multiple notes - No longer an option. Why not? I could go on (and frequently do). There are a host of curious design choices that other beta users have highlighted. I'm not quite so frustrated with those things. I can live with a quirky new way of doing something as long as it works. Why do I need to click twice on a link to open it? Who knows? It's a behaviour I'm not familiar with and seems like a curious design choice but I'm really only bothered that the link opens. TL;DR? Evernote is broken. At least, it doesn't work in a way that will allow me to keep using it without employing a lot of "workarounds". This is true of the iOS release too. (The issue about offline notebooks is well documented in the relevant forum, for example.) Having been with Evernote for 12 years, I was happy to contribute time to the Preview and Beta programmes. I liked Evernote. I encouraged friends to use it. I pestered work colleagues to download it. I don't expect to be making such encouraging noises in the future! I'm sure a huge amount of work has gone into making this new Evernote release. Perhaps this is simply a bumpy start to an exciting journey but it's not one that I'll be joining. I just want Evernote to be what it used to be, a reliable, robust 'second brain'. This release, sadly, is not a step forward.

    Have been paying for Evernote for 10 years and this always happen after an upgrade. Will have to migrate to another notes platform. Just ridiculous that this keeps happening after upgrades. Keeps crashing and saves multiple versions of the same note
  32. 1 point
    Yes - mine is the same, now that you mention it. I think the only way we can downgrade is for Evernote to pull the current version from the App Store and replace it with the previous version. They may need to change the version number though, so that iOS14 will recognise it as a "new" update. Ironically, I just read an interview with the Evernote CEO who was spruiking the new iOS version. When asked why the iOS version was being released first, his reply was "Because it's ready". Errr - I have news for him, and it's not good news....

    I have the same issue with the clipper, but also, nothing I do in the iOS app is actually reflected in the desktop or web app. It's like a read only version of Evernote that has been frozen. I'm also interested in getting the previous version back. This iOS version is a late apha version at best and should not be live.
