  1. I think given the frustration of users from the preview, beta and now the general release about the removal of functions and sparse information about which may still be under development, I think it would be a good idea for Evernote to publish a full roadmap to show which features are coming and a list of those that have been removed for good. I don't think this would even need dates, just a list of features with a guide as to In Development | Coming Later | Removed Permanently and to show where the new client is going. I think this would give users a clear indication of what to expect

  2. It's unbelievable how such a good product can turn into such a bad thing that it induces a customer from years of using the product and the platform to start a process of mass migration of their data to the competition. How can a company do not make a market research, a survey among its loyal customers about what they expect or not from a new version. To me, if Evernote continues like this, it really died. And there it is to look for alternatives to other products, which maybe don't have all the features of Evernote but at least they don't charge us for what they can't offer, different f

  3. 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

  4. I've been a loyal user of Evernote for many years now, eschewing the Microsoft behemoth for some more open source alternates. Evernote was a bit of a compromise, but at least it wasn't MS. So I await new developments with interest. This last one seems to be a disaster. So far I have found the following issues with Evernote 10 that render it unsuitable for my use. I use Evernote as my journal/to do lists/note taking application to pretty much manage my life, and as such ease of use is important, as is customisation and personalisation. It is the application in which I spend most of my time.

  6. This sadly doesn't seem to be a new version of Evernote. It is an entirely different product that has access to our Evernote data in the cloud, but bears little resemblance in functionality to the Windows version of Evernote. So many features missing. This is worse than the iOS version, which, after being in the beta for a few weeks, opted out, installed Evernote 8.x from the App Store, then turned off automatic updates. So much is broken. No import folders? No global note shortcut keys? This is unusable to anyone that has used Evernote for over a decade. ☹️

  7. I gave up trying v.10 and am back to previous v. 6.25.1.9091 (last stable version). I use Evernote for work, not for leisure. The poor design and missing features affect my workflow. I just can't afford it. The whole situation is a true lack of respect. This release is an unfinished project - and a poor one. I'll stick to the older version for now.

  8. I`ve just installed the new v. 10 and I just couldn't believe my eyes: oh, no, they kept most of the horrible beta version they realeased a few weeks ago! I would't call it an upgrade. I see it as a new concept, a whole new design - and they turned the back to old customers, simple as that. I spend 90%> of my computer time at Evernote. It has been so for the past 11 years, my workflow is based on Evernote, I have thousands of notes. They messed everything up. My first shock (not yet recovered): they killed the local databases and syncing. Who asked me if I want to have a

  9. (UPDATE: this release has been patched to 10.1.7-1902. This is a bug fix patch.) Hello! Today we are releasing Evernote for Windows 10.1 (v 10.1.4). With this release we are addressing some of the initial bugs we’ve seen in 10.0--particularly around crashes and stability. We also spent some time focusing on a spellcheck bug that was particularly problematic for Windows customers. It is available now from the Windows App Store, or as a direct download version from our website. If you are already running the direct download version, you will see an automatic update sometime soon

  10. I have been an Evernote user for nearly 10 years now, and I have never posted except to assist other users with problems. I do feel as though I need to add my voice to the general dissent, perhaps only as a power user, with version 10. I tolerated the reduced functionality of the web app and can make do with the current Android app, because I knew I could always go back to the Windows app where I could rapidly initiate searches with [CTRL]-Q, adjust note creation and updated dates, enter and edit note locations (which I do use), construct advanced searches and bulk process notes the way

  11. Reading all of the posts here and in the EN reddit over the last few days, I've had a sinking feeling in my chest. I was so excited that the folks at Evernote were going to a single code base! As a developer, I understand this. It would make bug fixing and adding features so much easier! All of the platforms would finally have the best of all worlds! Instead, what we've gotten is, well, what we've gotten. I'm very disappointed, both as a user and as a developer. I've been working on a similar project for the last two or three years - porting a Flash-based application to Typescript an

  12. I'm as pissed as everyone else, and really angry at Evernote for putting out this version without FULL details (surely they must have expected this blow-back), BUT, now that they have their 2 years worth of work leveling out the playing field across all platforms, which is what they said their intention was, I'm still willing to hang around for a bit and wait for all the missing features to be implemented. I mean at the end of the day, their BIG mistake was to put this out now instead of waiting until all they implemented all the features. So I'll hang on the older version and give them a bit

  13. 100% agree. Huge disappointment. I'm quite shocked actually at the overall trajectory of the company over the past few years. Evernote used to be top of the range, pro-user efficient software. Now it feels like third rate bloatware web-app. I really don't see the sense in so many steps being taken backwards. All my notes look completely different now, that is thousands of days and daily logs all modified or corrupted. Why? I was glad to find the legacy version was still able to run and download, and when I opened that it was a sigh of relief. it's immediately obvious which one i

  14. Personally I cannot believe they have released this, I was a preview and beta tester and the number of issues raised should have been a good indication of how this was not ready for general release. There are so many missing features and no word on whether they will ever re-appear and things still not working, pretty disappointed to be honest - seems like most of the feedback was ignored.

  18. 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 simp

  20. Dear Evernote.... this is what your average CUSTOMERS are seeing with version 10.0. We have performance problems, sluggishness and otherwise have questions to the status of our notes. Things are missing, things are downgraded. What is going on behind the scenes? How many times have you watched an Apple announcement saying "Here is the Shiny New Macbook... BUT... we downgraded the diplay to 1024x768... AND installed a traditional spinning hard disk instead of a superfast SSD?" "It's worse than last years model, BUT hey it is shiny and new so enjoy!"

  21. On iOS client 10.0.3 (1104765) (just like in previous 10.x as well) it is very slow to start the client on iPad Pro. It takes some 10 seconds before I'm able to do anything useful. During that time some of the touch gestures tries to go through but not correctly. Basically the current 10.x series has ruined the user experience due to the enormous delays in various places while trying to use the app. Feel free to like this if you have the same comments, or post constructive hints how to get rid of the problem. Thanks! Markku

  23. Part of my point is that we shouldn't have to wait to see. If you (a company with a very mature product and a large user base) are going to release a complete rewrite that doesn't contain all of the functionality of the product it is replacing, the responsible, correct way to do it is with lots and lots of communication up front. You don't leave your users wondering "where did my critical feature go?" and "when, if ever, will it come back?". You don't leave them wondering if the legacy app is going to live on or suddenly disappear. You don't leave them wondering if they are goin

  25. I articulated this in the beta forums and am re-adding here to allow for voting up of the feature for those who agree with me. I very much dislike the added step of having to click a note link, then click the link again in the menu that appears. Adds all kinds of extra clicks to my workflow. I'm aware that Command+Click will open the link in a new window (and bypass the click on the drop down URL that appears). This is an ok workaround for external note links (out to the web, for example) but not at all what I'm after for internal note links (I don't want them to open in a new window

  26. A real slap in the face for all of us preview and beta testers who have spent hours not only finding all the problems but carefully documenting them and saying why they are important to our workflows. I know it's not the final version and I know we can still use the full functioned "old" version but what do EN hope to learn by making it a general release? They are just going to be told all the things we have been saying for months.

  29. The new editor is more beautiful, but it is not very functional. On windows, the platform I use is very bad. You took away several features (Synchronize button, several shortcut keys, the table operation was too bad - new lines do not use the formatting of the previous one, etc ...). Not to mention the performance that is much slower than the classic version. And where is the preferences screen? I have never seen an application that cannot be configured. I use the premium version, but I'm already researching other apps to migrate (OneNote, SimpleNote, etc ...). In my opinion you ha

BUT when I read what the many knowledgeable people on this forum are saying about e.g. the 'Apps Performance Issues' (strange how that thread is labelled 'Answered') amongst many other serious failings and release issues... has me seriously worried about the future, about having to look for alternatives, and how long I can expect to sit on version 6.25 before EN pulls the plug?

  31. For files inside the new Evernote structure, here's what I've found: But first, here is an example note link: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s144/nl/27217275/a504b0b6-5aa9-42f9-aa12-505ef1f8737a?title=Server Rebuild / Computer System Plan Out See that a504b0b6-xxxxx number? That's your note ID - at least what I'd assume is the note ID. The 27217275 number is your user ID number/account number.

  32. Those of us who've been part of the Beta testing have been speaking up for a number of the functions that have been missed in this release. Notably we pressed for the Import Folders (since this also impacts on the scanning options as well), the ability to use personal shortcuts (perhaps using some form of local settings/options), a sync button (which gives a reassuring function although since the new sync is supposed to be instant it shouldn't be necessary but sometimes is), local folders, plus many other more individual use cases that still seemed to be important.

  33. The new version sucks. Evernote began to consume 3-4 times more memory (more than 1 GB with 4 notes open), which is why the application slows down. The old version consumes 200-300 MB for the same number of notes. Even in the worst of times, when everyone called Evernote "the slowed-down elephant," the notebook ran faster. Side panel! Seriously? I see only a few tags on the 13-inch display instead of 20 in the old version. Do you call this "making a spacious design"? The new panel was not created to work with information. Colored tags! They made it possible to work very quickly

  34. Hi. First comment - you may want to change the tag line for this section: "If you have feedback related to the older version of Evernote for Windows, post here!" (my emphasis) - I think you mean the new one? Some questions arise before I update my current version 6.25... Is there a "step back" option? - i.e. once updated would I be able to revert to my 6.25 version if the new app is not performing well? Local (unsynced) notes are no longer supported - do you still store local copies of the notes synced with the server database? I ask because I use Backupery's app to export

The disappointment when I am forced to use the new iOS app is so huge, that I become angry over and over again. This is not an accepated situation. The new Evernote is not a "good piece of software that has too many bugs". It's actually very bad software that has ON TOP too many (CRITICAL!) bugs. In particular the new features you redesigned are ***** and that is the actual problem of the entire redesign catastrophe! The new features are horr

  39. Hmmn. I agree with half that statement. My frustration with everyone's negative reaction so far has been that early adopters, who had an option, (with the exception of iOS) still chose to update to the latest shiny new version - and then complain that it doesn't work the same way as the old one. There's a Legacy version guys (and gals) - go reinstall that (unless you're an iPhone user) and go back to the interface you knew - and (apparently) hated less. See: I have tasks to get done. They're independent of apps, which I use to make my life easier. Tasks are depressingly consistent

  40. Primarily, a good leader should use strategic thinking - have a clear aim and an idea how to achieve it (almost everybody want to be in top 1%, but only 1% knows how to get there...). Moreover, CEO should consider positive and negative outcomes during each step ahead plus be aware of unintended consequences of each. Next, have a plan how to enhance good effects and mitigate bad ones. Do damage control, etc. Choose skilled and engaged coworkers and manage them to reach objectives. Basically be like a chess-master - thinking five steps/moves ahead. Moreover, knowing the industry standards a

It was literally my second brain until about 2 years ago, when I could finally no longer defend every issue or bug, no matter what. Once upon a time, I watched Evernote become more useful by the day - for more than 10 years. I have given it time but feel I can finally say that trend has reversed. The lack of the ability to e-mail a note is the straw that has me for the first time in well over a decade googling "alternative to Ever

But I agree that a simple table of "coming soon / working on it / gone for good" would actually restore a sense of rational confidence in many users who have been severely shaken by this.

  46. 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....
