  1. From my personal observation, reaction time is moving upward since the first release of EN v10, which was the iOS client. Probably EN support is currently not among the „great places to work“. Beside the possibility to issue a support ticket there is an option „Send feedback“ at the very bottom of the left side panel. Probably we should reserve the support tickets for those who urgently need them, and use the feedback-option for cases not in need of immediate support.

  2. fully agree on evernote's complete mishandling of introduction and roll out of V10, which essentially is just an evernote light...obviously the ***** up could simply be incompetence as you suggest, but judging from my corporate experience I would think some sort of financial pressure is the more likely culprit. a deadline for a loan, commitments to investors or something as simple as senior management bonus payments linked to a release date....something of this sort is the most likely explanation for a ***** up as fundamental as this in my experience...

  3. I suppose it's water under the bridge at this point, but this situation appears to be a bit of a self-own. A public beta would have allowed enthusiasts to bash on the apps and expose edge cases and unusual bugs, but EN chose not to offer one. Once Evernote was ready to declare the apps "ready," they could have been released as opt-in only (i.e. no prompts to upgrade) while support monitors the reaction, but they chose not to do so. Once initial feedback looked good, the apps could have been pushed out to 1% of users and then they could have paused, monitored support for a few days, and ro

  4. +1,000 The latest iOS version is a train wreck. I’ve used Evernote for 12 years and cannot believe this massive leap backwards. We lost THREE valuable features for clipping/sending-to: 1) subject/title of original content no longer populates into new note 2) ability to tag clipped content at moment of clipping had been removed 3) the UX to change destination notebooks is now more cumbersome Unconscionable

  5. Yeah, that's my point, you don't need a bug fix, until you have a bug that's impacting you, then you need one. That's the way software works. My conclusion is to investigate migrating away. I am not going to wait out while they finish the development of the platform. Not saying that's what anyone should or shouldn't do - ultimately it's a risk assessment. I personally think the risk of trusting that EN legacy will keep running happily until v10 has had the features added back in and is stable is too high.

If I want to relocate my point of access right now, I connect to my VPN provider, choose a server and - Boooom - I am now in Australia. I have not left my sofa, but virtually I relocated with a few mouse clicks to down under. Geolocation is NOTHING, anybody can do this, and hackers do it for sure, because they don’t want to be found ! Furthermore (at least when travel was still open) if you have 200 Million u

  7. To which conclusion do you come ? Sort of you start on a journey, and now the gas is out ? The „legacy“ clients work - at the moment I don’t need „bug fixes and further development“. I can use them, in a productive way, I know what I can do, and do it efficiently. That’s all I need, in terms of current operations. EN has embarked to reset everything, and start fresh all over. The promise is that a unified code platform will free resources that can be redirected into the embetterment and extension of EN. That is strategy, and nothing wrong with it. What is lacking currently is a

  8. In some ways I'm actually finding the new way of moving multiple notes better. In the Legacy version I regularly used to drag multiple notes but there have been times where I've not "released" them over the right notebook... so this lack makes up for my clumsiness 😉

  11. The ios Web Clipper used to give you the ability to assign tags while clipping. On version 10 of the ios app that functionality had been removed which causes me an extra step in my workflow to go back into the app after its been clipped to add the tags. Will this functionality be restored into the ios app?

  14. Tags extremely buggy almost unuseful now. When I add or remove a tag from a note it doesn't show the note in the correct tag when filtering them, but instead still show it in the removed tag. I have to add and remove the tag and add more tags and remove them to see the note appear in the right tag list after a while, seems seriously buggy The update added 300.000 clicks a day to have the same functions I used to do with 10, productivity is gone, had to roll back to legacy if I want to work.

  15. Today we are releasing Evernote for Windows 10.2 (v 10.2.4 build 1949). This release contains some major architectural changes to help us release future features, in addition to adding system tray clipping functionality. It is available now from the Windows 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 as we progressively roll out the update and do not need to take any action.

  16. The loss of the ability to add tags while clipping on my iPad makes EN virtually unusable for me. I depend on Evernote and would hate to have to abandon it, but I’ll be forced to do so, if this functionality isn’t restored pronto. Additionally, a big annoyance is that the first letter of a new line in a note - a list, say - is now lower case by default.

In case you do: Today remindertime:day -remindertime:day+1 -reminderdonetime:* Late remindertime:* -remindertime:day -reminderdonetime:* Tomorrow -reminderdonetime:* remindertime:day+1 -remindertime:day+2 Etc. This is what it looks like on Windows 6.25 with left panel closed when you hit the search icon. Z EDIT: The 7 and 8 reminders are remnants. I could drop dated from the 7's, too lazy for that. And 8 is just in case I goof up. Belts and suspenders.

  19. I'll be leaving. I relied on spelling corrections. Gone. I relied on embedded links in notes. Now i think I'm in Google Docs. Yes, that link I placed in the note and I clicked on -- I want to go there. I don't need a hover or buffer or whatever that function is supposed to be. i don't like it in Google Sheets. I don't like it in my Evernote. How many extra keystrokes and clicks need to happen in this new version? Too many. Notebooks or notes... why add the navigation complexities that appear now? AND you can go to the Legacy version if you don't mind that it's not goin

  20. Personally I believe in terms of information they have everything they need, and probably more. Given alone the usage metrics of the servers should tell a lot, especially when viewed over a time span. Gaining more new users than loosing ? Conversion rate from non-paid to paid, and vice versa ? Accounts going dormant, accounts reactivated ? And so on ! I think in the end it was an internal conflict: Part of the teams says „we release“, part says „it’s too early“. Both sides have arguments on their side. I once learned to know a guy responsible for a company with several thousand employees.

  22. Hi there, I made the mistake of updating my work laptop's (Windows) Evernote to version 10. I can't use it. 80 percent of my notes are command output and code, so not being able to set a default monospaced font like Consolas just makes it UNUSABLE. All my notes look horrible now. Help! Please! I need to go back. Can't find a download of Version 6 anywhere. Cheers, Pete

  23. Thanks. For the input we have tried to make one pdf per site out of the merged Evernote clips which was why I was wondering if theres a way to unify the formats in Evernote but will look for alternative clippers. The other ones we looked at didnt seem like they could output in PDF which was why we went with Evernote. If you have any specific extensions that come to mind, recommendations would be much appreciated.

  26. You can select multiple notes using ctrl-click. The issue that @mnaoumov raised is that you cannot then drag and drop those notes - you have to use the longwinded menu process to do it. I actually raised this back in the beta and was told that it was in the future plans. At the moment all operations on multiple notes are painfully slow. Just try selecting 10 notes and adding the same tag to them all.

  27. I'll loudly echo the comments on adding tags back into the app. As a very long-time Evernote user (since paper scroll metaphor) I'm concerned a new version was released that eliminated a good existing feature. That seems to have been a fail in design and development. App management needs to be cognizant of that problem. Also lost was the auto-fill of the title of an article or item being clipped that worked 90%of the time. That's a great feature and should not have disappeared. I'll also put in an ask for the ability to replicate the type of clip that is made, as is done in the

  28. No roadmap or timetable for the return of the watch app. As a workaround I use the app JustPressRecord. It creates an audio note from the watch and makes a transcript. This can be shared into EN on the iPhone. What I like is that JPR allows to keep both the audio file plus the transcript. You can come back to audio later if there is anything not clear in the transcript. It does not replace EN on the watch 1:1, but is better than nothing.

  30. It really appears that Evernote's recent changes have been a big FAIL. In the past few weeks, I have not been able to log in to my Windows app consistently and today the new web version is freezing and I cannot access some of my notes. This is TOTALLY unacceptable. I have downloaded Notion and plan on testing it out. Anyone else looking seriously at other options?

  31. Same here...I pay a lot of money (to me--I'm a graduate student) to make sure that my evernote experience is "premium", but this last update is terrible. If the sync were working properly then I wouldn't mind not having a convenient force sync button anymore--but it's not syncing properly. Sync is slow to impossible across devices, images captured in evernote now required to be downloaded and then moved in order for them to show up in photos and be able to send them to anyone outside of evernote (people who don't have evernote do not want to have to download something just to see my pictu

  32. Hi, up to now we paid money for plus/premium/business subscription to get access to full functionality and mature version i.e. free from critical/major bugs. The current version has been stripped down from about 80% of advanced functionality - users' feedback about this has been ignored. Moreover, as seen on this and iOS forum there is a lot of critical bugs related to stability, sync., etc. Therefore, I suggest that all versions of Evernote apps/services should be free for all until they will reach some considerable level of maturity. Current paid users should get at least a partial

It was amazingly easy. I exported my Evernote notebooks, one notebook at a time to ENEX files on my iMac desktop. I then clicked import in Apple Notes and they uploaded almost instantly. I then moved the notes to appropriately named folders in Notes and ... done. Several thousand notes to me a half hour. It then took another 30 minutes for everything to upload to iCloud so that they are accessible on all my devic

  34. I love almost everything about Evernote (I use the windows 10 app) but the dictionary and correction options are terrible. Evernote is a note-taking app meaning a large portion of the user base is students. Because of this, one would assume Evernote would at least make an attempt to have a dictionary that is occasionally updated or at least close to that of other note taking and writing platforms. Both the list of terms in the dictionary and the way the spell checking system works have needed an update for years and yet nothing has come. The dictionary does fairly well in normal circumstances,

  35. @itharaju Thanks. I downloaded Legacy and did this as well and it works. It's still stupid that we need to have 2 software installed and toggle between them. I am 99.99% sure this can be resolved in half an hour by a developer. Simply by removing the validation for the field, so that it will allow you to modify it as you wish (as it's been for years). But I have the feeling it will take months. I hate to say it, but after about 7 years of using Evernote I've started to look at alternatives.

  37. One of the most simple, and usable, things is dragging a file to an email to send to a client. Doesn't work with version 10.1.7 I have to save the file to my computer and then drag it to the email, then delete the file from my computer or I'm going to fill that up!! Seriously. This can't be all that difficult. It's one of the best features for me as a send lots of email communications. Printing a note - now 2 or 3 steps from what I can tell. I sometimes just want to print a note in PDF to Evernote, gathering various pictures, scans, or screen shots in one document. They made it more

  38. Although the cause was different, the problem was the same - an inconclusive note. Mine, because the new always-on instant sync failed when the internet dropped as I was writing. Well, killing the V10 client and purging everything (I did the same - utter demolition job) didn't cure the problem for me... and I decided to try something that looks like it might have. Having purged and reinstalled - and triple checked I couldn't delete the note there or anywhere else - it occured to me to: 1. Close the web app (just in case) 2. With the reinstalled V10 client open, TURN OFF my

All PDF's that was marked as "view as attachment" in the previous version are not showing as such in the new version, and I'm talking about thousands!!

  42. Hi, three weeks are gone. Any progress with bug-fixing? You have a lot to fix, and we can't see any progress. Wouldn't be better to just publish old/legacy iOS app as a separate app in AppStore until 10.x will reach at least minimum maturity?

  43. This is well said. The strategy of unifying the code base and the various applications is fine, it's the execution that is lacking. At least, thus far. I'm still rooting for them to figure out out and knock our socks off.

  44. I moved everything over to Apple Notes. I exported my notebooks individually, then imported individually. Seems to have worked seamlessly. I did this with a little over 2,000 notes. There are things from Evernote that I will miss, but I just have to have a system that works. BTW, the ticket I put in over ten days ago has not been responded to (premium member here). I can't imagine what it's like working tech support for Evernote right now.

  45. For reasons that CEO Ian Small has outlined in blog posts and interviews (e.g., here and here), they are not going back. They have built an entirely new code base to be used for all platforms (rather than maintaining separate ones for Windows, Mac, Web, etc.), and there is no reversion from that. What we can hope for is that features will be restored to the Windows program, performance will improve, and eventually new and better features will appear.

  49. Extreme lag when I type. I also, was in the middle of typing a note ( a few paragraph), then the whole note just was missing a large portion of what I typed. I then re-typed it and the same thing happened. For the third time, I just switched to microsoft word. I have been a paying evernote user for 9 years, now. I have heard a lot of complaints. I did not care. I just though, it worked fine the way it was. This version (so far) is totally unusable. End of story. I am shocked this version was released. Total garbage, sorry to say....
