  1. The hint to the Professional plan is a reminder there is now another plan, no advertisement. I have dismissed it, and was done. Didn’t come back yet. The feature tutorial (the blue boxes appearing on the GUI where new items are located) is short, click through it once, and done. Maybe it was introduced after they looked at their support traffic and found out that many users asked the same basic questions. Then there is a reminder about Professional on some widgets. I don‘t see this as an ad - it simply says „Hey, you just clicked here. We assume you want this widget. In this case you need to change the plan“. So what, before I think „something is not working“ I learn that I can‘t use it without an upgrade. It is different on the Free plan - there the hints to subscribe are continuous. You can argue whether this is good marketing - but it is IMHO covered by using a valuable service for nothing.

  2. HTML Export Option - still a work-in-progress (links to attachments don't function) Import Folders - still a work-in-progress (edit; delete option is missing)

  3. Good question. I decided to try it for just one professional project, the reason being the complaints of my co-workers who were staring at the spinning wheel in Evernote way too long. So I did not make the complete switch yet (I have +38 400 notes) and I would advise to go slowly. But it is very close to Evernote in features (with some added bonus). For the time being, I think Evernote Legacy is still unbeatable. And I think Evernote in Android is not that bad. But Nimbus... you know... it just works well. You try a feature and... ta-dam... it works.

  5. I don't really know if this helps but I've taken many of my non-essential notes and moved them into Gdrive. For example, I had notes in which 5-10 years of pdf files on various statements were all concatenated together. I used Acrobat to combine them all and moved them into Gdrive. I do the same for all my bills, scanned books, spreadsheets and other non-essential files. Since many of my notes were just depositories for files this helped to slim things down somewhat. I also had thousands of notes that were faxes from Hellofax that were being uploaded automatically to Evernote. Anything like that I sweep into Gdrive on an ongoing basis. Obviously this doesn't help much with normal notes. I don't know if any of this has actually helped with anything because I too experience a lot of lag but I'm still quite happy with Legacy.

  6. Evernote finally restored audio recording to the desktop, but the files recorded are in the webm format which is non standard and hard to use outside of Evernote. When I record audio on an iOS device, the file format in the resulting note is m4a which I am able to open and listen to in other applications. I would like to see at least .m4a support added to the desktop version of Evernote so that the files created on my mobile device and my laptop are the same and usable outside of evernote.

  7. +1 I don’t use Google for anything as a rule, but, I wanted to incorporate the new calendar and note abilities - I have to say I am finding the work flow a huge help. I created a Google calendar to sync but keep the details purely to a title; I just don’t trust Google with privacy. It also means I have a Safari tab open to be able to add Calendar entries which is functional but clunky. If we had iCloud calendar it would be awesome.

  8. Maybe wipe EN from the system, using Revo Uninstaller ? It is normal on a modern OS that there are many parts of an app left over after a standard uninstall. The uninstaller apps try to find them all.

  9. They can be installed at the same time. There is no harm in giving it a try yourself. Everyone has different use cases and will have different thoughts. Best to give it a go yourself.

  10. As stated in one of your other posts (don‘t double post, not by copy&paste, and not by filling every subforum with the same stuff even if you type it anew) by another user, you may have an individual problem. Annotation works for me, no problem, as it does for many others. See the post from @agsteele in the other thread with possible solutions.

  11. For you... But it is working for others... I just annotated a PDF without any trouble whatsoever. The normal first step would be to completely uninstall the Evernote app - being sure to remove all the data and program directories and then reinstall and allow Evernote to rebuild your installation. Revo Uninstaller is great and achieving this or do a normal unistall and then be sure to delete the two directories %AppData%\Evernote and %LocalAppData\Programs\Evernote If that doesn't do the trick then raise a support ticket.

  14. And I've not heard of Personal subscription comes with 'ads'... I'm personally, pun intended, not that disappointed with not upgraded to Professional tier, because I was not using anything but multi-device sync. What's annoying is that pesky 'upgrade to Professional' ads. I'm not interested in throwing more money on this disrespectful, dysfunctioning, and outdated company. I just want to keep my creations safe and stable, as all things should be, since 2014. Please Evernote. I'm paying you money. Why I have to see upselling ads? Paid apps should be ads-free, I guess.

  15. A tag can be placed under shortcuts (eg by dragging it there) - whether there are notes with the tag or not. (Good!) However, if I remove that tag from all notes, then the tag is automatically removed from the shortcuts. (Bad!) The tag shortcut should remain whether there are notes with the tag or not.

  16. Yes, I would like this as well. Gotta say, I'm loving the task feature. I'm a long time user of OMNIFOCUS (pricey) - but don't use it at all anymore. I appreciate the way in which TASKS present, with a link to the associated note. I add sub-tasks as a list within the note. I can manually add date and time stamp to the note when I check complete... but it would be nice if it was automatic and attached to the task. Ken

  17. To clarify this a little, now that I've been through the upgrade process, for me to move from Premium (paying the legacy price via Google Play with several months left until renewal date) to Personal (paying annually direct to Evernote) I did the following: Contacted Evernote support via chat and explained that I want to move to Personal but had several months left on my subscription via Google Play They told me that if I cancelled the Google Play subscription then I could sign up direct with Evernote and they (Evernote) would refund the unused months of my Google Play payment. They passed my details on to their support team. Support team contacted me and we agreed to go ahead. They cancelled the Google Play subscription for me - I got an email from Google saying that the subscription would be cancelled on my renewal date and no refunds would be given. Evernote support sent me a link to sign up for Personal directly with them, paying annually. Once I had signed up, Evernote then refunded me the amount corresponding to the months I had left on my Google Play subscription. All in all, I think it went pretty smoothly and Evernote support were responsive and helpful. Hope this is useful for someone else.

  19. This file format isn't read by Otter.ai which I use for all transcriptions. Makes the Evernote audio feature irrelevant to me. I agree wholeheartedly that the file format should be something that is considered a common audio format.

  20. Given the current rollout of functions and backend adaptions, I don’t think it is a good idea not to update the EN client(s). A v10 client is an unfinished piece of software, and only updates close the gap. Not updating cuts the flow of bug fixes as well. Anybody can do as he wants - but this strategy spells trouble. I am pretty sure of it.

  21. Hello everyone, I decided to spare the time to write this disappointment post. Let me note right here that the disappointments you will read in this post is just a small -but most recent- fraction of my 10 years awesome user experience with EN. I have been using Evernote for the past 10 years, maybe half of which are premium. Documents, thoughts, tutorials, web archives, book suggestions, recipes, code, everything I care about is on Evernote and I am still using and love Evernote Moleskine notebooks. Early this year and thanks to COVID (spare) time, I took the time to transition all my data from the cloud to my Synology NAS, firstly because I ended up paying >500$/year (excluding business) to cloud subscriptions but most importantly because I wanted to own my personal data and not pay rent for it. After a streak of subcription cancelling, I cancelled almost all -I am still left with Evernote and iCloud-. I will be cancelling iCloud too when I 've built the Photo workflow I want to. And.. last one standing: Evernote. After giving it a thought and despite the fact that Synology and OneNote both offer a seamless way to migrate notes from Evernote, I said "no". I will be keeping my Evernote subscription, despite the fact that my subscription cost almost doubled in my paid plan years. Why ? Because I got high value from Evernote and it was acceptable to have my data on the cloud but get instantaneous search, famous Evernote OCR etc. And then... v10 came along. Being a developer myself, I don't get judgemental on product changes. When my clients are going back and forth with features they themselves requested, how easy would it be to offer features that 225M users will love or at least find acceptable ? However, performance/productivity aspects are must-haves and there is no point keeping a productivity app that kills your productivity, and that brought me to: shall I cut the last man standing ? Before doing that, I thought let's share some of those reasons, maybe someone will pay attention: New version Performance/Productivity/Reduced Functionality issues. The new app is by far the worst transition I had in my 10 years using EN. It feels (and probably is) a rubbish web hybrid that builds to macOS app too. Don't get me wrong, the UI is great/clean, note composing tools are better than ever, but guys/ladies, creating a note, moving batch/1 note to another notebook are the essentials. Who cares about functionality #3475 when you don't deliver functionalities #1 and #2. Here are 6 reasons why it sucks + 1 inconvenience: When dragging document to Evernote icon, user needs to click on a notebook, wait up to 10 seconds so the import occurs When moving a note to another notebook, it may take up to 30 seconds to be able to select the desired notebook. There is a lock icon and notebooks are greyed out for up to 30 seconds ffs. See screenshot here. When in need to do a batch action for a lot of notes, maximum number of notes is 50 ! (Seriously, is this a joke ?). That's also why I believe the new version is a web hybrid built. Launching the new app in every client (macOS, iOS, web) takes up to 1 minute, when data is not in cache Both macOS, iOS apps "hung". They are stuck and either need up to 30 seconds to revive or they need to be quit. Truth be told, newest updates have limited this issue to a minimum, but yet existing occasions. Linking notes inside the app ! That functionality existed, can't say I was really happy, but at least it worked. Now if you link one note to another, it creates a link that only launches on web ! When searching, ⌘ A selects all notes (all=50 as explained in 1.3) instead of search text Cost commitment. That's why I cancelled Dropbox, they took me from 69 to 129 in 1 year. If not mistaken, I believe Evernote went from 39 to 59, which I find somewhat acceptable considering I am literally paying to accommodate the free user tier. The Moleskine partnership is really cool I have to say and I 'd love to see an update on that Palaeolithic API. EN's API is literally last decade. I attempted to use EN API, but the process is only intended for external vendors that need to integrate a product to EN. The documentation is so outdated and non-existing, that really makes me wonder how safe my data is on EN. Documentation does not include the plain simple cURL commands. Innovation Stopped. It seems like there is no innovation happening, especially after Phil took off. I get it, there is no way competing to notes.app when Apple is really investing in that, but I expect to see some new features in my note-taking app of choice. There is limited app updating (Scannable, Skitch, Penultimate) going on. Features and business strategies I would like to see in the future Performance/Productivity/Reduced functionality -> See issues above. After having composed this post, I tend to realise that all those issues might be related to my assumption that EN now uses a web hybrid. If my assumption is correct, we need native apps. Batch actions -> See 1.3. Why on earth would a functionality of that importance be removed ? I know, hybrid app, right ? Stable Pricing -> Either keep it same and offer more or reduce it and keep it as is. At the moment we are paying more and probably even more in the future for same functionality with performance decrease ! Where does this elevation stop ? Maybe reduce functionality for free users and offer paid ones the value/innovation their cost deserves ? Tagging AI -> Tag suggestions based on user use. For example, every month I import in EN a tax document and payment. How hard would that be to identify pdf pattern and recognise that there are 1000 similar notes with the same tags. Breath-taking iPad app -> Penultimate was great back when it was introduced, but nowadays seem somewhat outdated. iPadOS has brought numerous features on note-taking and there are apps on the App Store that do use those innovations. We need the Evernote iPad app to be as good as it deserves to be. Automations -> Not getting up to date with the environment has its cost: the environment will not update too. Automating note imports in EN should be part of the EN app, just like the EN email. I am not talking about Zapier stuff, but plain-simple automations. At least create a AppleScript dictionary we can use Tasks Management -> We got reminders that -tough truth- never reached an acceptable state of productive use. I literally remember 3 years ago, I needed to manually go to notes 1-1 and clear reminders to remove the clutter. Alright, that's 2 free hours from me to you @EverNote, a price I am happy to pay considering the productivity gain I had all those years. So, are you going to keep me productive or is this a farewell ? Best regards, Askaridis Stathis

  22. Try uninstalling with Revo Uninstaller Free (it removes bits that other removers don't get around to) and then restart your device / reinstall.

  23. Hi. The free account allows use on two devices only - typically mobile and desktop, or mobile and web. The 'unsync a device' option above suggests that you have exceeded that limit. Removing all but the device you're currently using should get you going again.

  28. The easiest way is to change any script that targeted older versions of Evernote to use Evernote Legacy. For example, tell application "Evernote" set theSelection to selection set theNote to ((properties of item 1 of theSelection) as note) set linkURL to note link of theNote set the clipboard to linkURL end tell can be changed to work with Evernote Legacy by changing tell application "Evernote" to tell application "Evernote Legacy". By the way, this script creates a "local" link to a note in Evernote, that can be pasted into documents on the same machine to reference the currently selected note.

  30. Mac EN 10.17.8 does work partially offline. Searching is, however, slow, and searching PDFs doesn't work (even though individual PDF notes are still visible). Not sure if this is a bug or a "feature" of EN 10. This severely limits my offline use.

  31. I have this same issue almost daily, although I don’t use the web client. I see it between my Mac and IOS devices, and it often results in multiple conflicting copies of the same note. I even see conflicts when I edit a note on my ipad, move to another app, and then come back to evernote — and yes, my other devices are offline. I filed yet another support case about this today.

  33. As an added convenience. if you check out the third-party app Filterize, it can process notes and move them to a different notebook. You could fairly easily set up a system where you tag notes with different keywords which are then moved to different notebooks. Works on both Legacy and v10

  35. I would love to see an integration or the possibility of Myscript Nebo in Evernote. I think Evernote is a note taking tool. I love to write with apple pencil. I dont want to use other Apps like penultimat. I wish i could open Evernote start a new note and write with pencil as good as myscript nebo it offers.

  36. I've been paying for EN for 10+ years, and this has been a kick in the teeth. I hung onto Evernote because I believed in the direction it was going in. I was excited about the new features and wanted to see the great new product it was to become. Alas it seems my loyalty hasn't been of any value. I would have liked to have seen all premium and plus users put onto the professional plan for 12 months and then after that perhaps placed back to their original plan with the option to upgrade, or something like that. I would have thought our loyalty was worth rewarding to some degree.

  37. 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

  38. I love the usefulness of the tasks, but I do not encourage to use them because they cannot be assigned the tags that I already use in the rest of the EVERNOTE system. Will you ever include the incorporation of labels as one more possibility for tasks? Congratulations on the innovation

  40. Come on man. Stop with this Evernote defending and Android "bashing". V10 simply deserves bad reviews on Play Store because of all the basic issues with the app on popular Android phones. The problem is Evernote and their slow android development. V8 works on more Android devices (below A10) and it works better, so this is no excuse. V8 works fine, the v10 doesn't, because clearly they need more time for v10. The problem is, that this "more time" is taking too long.

  41. It's 2017, Evernote. Limiting us to 200MB today in a single note isn't working anymore and will force me back to OneNote. Many .pdf files are larger than 200MB. A new limit of 2GB per note needs to be put into place.

  43. I have not been on this board for quite a while -- basically since Evernote made the terrible decision to switch to using Electron instead of a native Mac app. I will NEVER switch to the EN Electron app. I wrote this to @gbarry in Nov 2020, and it continues to be true: @Ian Small, I am so, so, disappointed in, and upset with, you. When you took over as Evernote CEO, I thought great things were ahead. I could not have been more wrong. Goodbye, Evernote.

  44. For the love of heaven why on earth would you remove this functionality from your app?? What complete idiot thought it was a good idea to make people open a note before they can delete it? Do you not grasp how much of a frustrating waste of time this is? It may not seem like much but it completely erases the ability to delete multiple notes and most importantly, this was a function that existed in the previous update! Seriously, the new homescreen is pointless enough as it is without losing other needed functions for no reason! Just let me long press my notes on the list to get a menu like basically every other android app that exists from anyone ever and select delete, preferably with the option to select multiple notes first. It shouldn't be hard, you literally had it in there before.

  46. Ok. It's been months and there is no word. I'm taking this as "No, we are not, and have no plans, to implement Applescript." I would have been overjoyed to have the answer be "Yes, it's coming back as soon as we nail down our feature set." I would have moved on, but been understanding if they had said "No, we are sorry, but respect our customers enough to be honest with them" Unfortunately the answer is clearly "No, but we are going to string you along as long as possible to milk you for every last penny before you move on." Either way, if no Applescript it was going to reduce my Evernote use. But now I'm reducing it... and I'm disgruntled and feeling used. Bad form Evernote.

  48. 1) It's possible that they find a way to add nested notebooks in a non-breaking change. 2) Even if they don't, companies deprecate and change old APIs all the time. Just because Evernote has not done so recently does not mean that tomorrow they couldn't announce a change. With enough advance noticed the other users of the API will adjust.
