  1. I have lots of lists using the old checkbox feature and I especially like that the text does not change to strike-through after checking the checkbox. After upgrading to v10.4.4, Evernote for Windows keeps automatically switching my check box lists to checklists and changes all text to strike-through for checked items. This happens anytime I press enter anywhere in any of the items on any line. It is impossible to add a new line anywhere - in the middle, at the end, ANYWHERE, without the list getting switched to a checklist. PLEASE allow us to disable this new "feature". I can understand

  2. Dear people at Evernote, I guess you have read the comments on the Google Play App. An immense amount of the community of Android Evernote users is deeply frustrated with the recent Android upgrade. I won't start listing all the negative points which have been ruined concerning the usability we relied upon on the previous version (you can have a look at the list yourself). Can you please help us all and just go back to the previous version? We would be thankful if you just admit the mistake and do this, it would be a noble thing to do for all of these loyal customers. Or at le

  3. While agreeing with most of the critique in this thread, my point is that EN 10.8 is truly dumbed down and no longer gives you control over the advanced settings that previous versions had. Som critical things are removed and even right click is gone, no customizable menu bar and the GUI is also working against you and I have to jump through hoops to create a "bunch of notebooks" and the list of complaints goes on! For me there is no reason to stay with EN with the client in this state of dyslectic functionality, so please listen to this serious feedback EN and bring back the featur

  5. Its been a solid 8 year run on Evernote premium, the new app is so slow and so terrible they forced my hand. I finally spent half my weekend exporting all my notes to Apple Notes and now couldn't be happier. It does exactly what I want: Takes notes, works across all my devices, loads instantly, doesn't interrupt my workflow with stupid announcements about a "new version coming soon". No bugs, No missing notes requiring me to restart the app. Just works. It even has an encrypted note feature! Thank you Apple. Now I've discovered Evernote make it impossible to delete my account for good. Th

  6. Completely agree. I like the new checklists (mainly because of the ease of reordering by drag and drop) but if I want a check box at the beginning of a line I should be allowed to have one! It would also be nice to choose whether to strikeout the text. If you are not aware from other posts the workaround is to put a space before the checkbox. So <space>[] inserts a checkbox at the beginning of a line, that doesn't change to a checklist when you hit enter. You will need to add it at the beginning of every line though.

  7. I also HATE the renewed Evernote. I hate it when I want to open Evernote, and I click the system tray icon I then need to click an extra button to open Evernote (I liked it better to just click the system tray icon to open Evernote). I hate it when I want to open a weblink in Evernote I have to click the link and then have to click the link again in a pop-up, and lots of times it still doesn't open the webpage in my webbrowser. It was possible to show my favorites in a top bar; now EN doesn't have that option anymore. It was possible to show the note-list on top, a

  8. Hi @MentalCompiler There are other long-term premium level users who are experiencing frustrations along the lines of what you are going through. I'm definitely one of them. 10 year user and > 20,000 notes in the app. Folks like us have been using the previous software versions long enough to have deeply engrained workflows which depend on the software functioning the way it has. Any change to the fundamental way the software was built was probably going to cause a lot of trouble for folks like us, no matter what they did. Unfortunately for us, the codebase for Evernote (

  9. This is what I find so interesting as well ! Ok sure, I assume the idiot managers likely don't use Evernote much but surely someone in the company must!?! If they did though I just don't see how on earth they would have released it. Baffling to me.

  10. As a paid subscriber since 2012 and daily plan and data repository user of Evernote, I’m extremely frustrated Ian chose to go after “fluff” instead of maintaining a trustworthy tool. “Power user” I’m not, but have thousands of notes in their currently incapable hands. If I execute a simple saved search based on tags, alter a note to remove a tag that is required in the search, and return to the saved search results...the note is still there in the search results. Okay, maybe I have to re-execute the search...no, several execution of the search retains the note even though it no longe

  11. Reading the release notes for Windows it is tragic to see how functionality that is standard in Legacy is now communicated as an improvement when it is added back to V10: Global keyboard shortcut editing is now available via the keyboard shortcuts reference menu. Don’t like the way a global keyboard shortcut is set up? Change it! You can now edit global keyboard shortcuts to find the perfect combination of characters. Access the keyboard shortcuts menu by using Ctrl/Cmd + /

  12. How could this new version have been released without being ready? v8.x was so much more responsive, had more features, and simply worked. v10.x is a slow mess. I'll give Evernote another two weeks. Then it is Joplin or OneNote for me.

  13. At this point, I would really like to see an official response from Evernote. This thread is two months old and still has recent activity, so others are clearly bothered by this behavior. IF YOU WORK FOR EVERNOTE AND ARE READING THIS, PLEASE RESPOND! Even if the response is that Evernote will not make any changes, I would still want to know that. The change I am asking Evernote to consider is allowing the user the ability/option to shut off or stop the automatic conversion of check box lists to the new checklists. Basically the ability to tell Evernote to leave a list of check boxes

  14. It seems others are not thrilled to see all their check box lists turned into checklists (with strike through). And Thankfully there is a workaround to prevent this from happening, but adding a space before each line is cumbersome if you have lots of lists and lots of items. So, I go back to my original request.... Can Evernote stop automatically converting existing check box lists to checklists? I'm not asking for checklists to go away - just don't keep switching everything to checklists! Or, allow the user some way to disable/turn off this auto-convert to checklist feature? Perhaps som

  15. Totally agree. It's frustrating not only because when we press enter for a new line it transforms into a checklist, but also because it's indented. I manage checklist/boxes within tables and this messes up with the whole design and width of columns. Typing a space before the box it's a workaround but it'd be nice that they fix this so it doesn't switch automatically.

  16. You destroyed Evernote with this new version. Why don't you think twice about ***** people's lives? Everything that has changed has changed for the worse. I have been using it since 2012. The worst version ever. The slowest and dumbest.

  17. I'm now in week two of update purgatory. The help center and the dev team doesn't take it seriously. It seems to me that the development team underestimates that the app is a total failure. It is imperative that help center and members of the dev-team take this more seriously. De- and re-installing doesn't better the situation! The following problems occur with the new Evernote app 10.5 (1110172) under Android 10.1.0.191 (C431E27R2P5), which is the last version of Android. 1.

  18. Hello, I realized the Presentation Mode is gone in the new MacOs update. Presentation Mode is the ONLY reason I paid years of Premium Membership for. I use it almost on a daily basis. I would regret to cancel if this feature is now removed for good. But I hope you can bring it back soon.

  19. I'm thinking of moving to OneNote too. The new Evernote is just AWFUL. So many features have been disabled, my Evernote scanner no longer works with it, one has to constantly be connected to the internet to use many of the notes. It's a mess! I've tried working with Evernote support and they've been of very little use. I used to LOVE Evernote and recommended it to everyone I knew and even paid for all my kids to use Premium. I would not recommend it any more. It's that bad!

  20. This has not worked properly since the release of Evernote 10. Fixing the most basic stuff that used to be functional and isn't anymore with v10 is apparently considered a feature by EN support. Better yet, try to use the Webclipper to clip a screenshot. Not only you cannot copy / paste outside of Evernote but you cannot open the image in an external editor and when you try to "Save as" you are supposed to manually add a file extension (guesswork here). Compare this with Evernote Legacy where the image was given a name and extension as expected. Please let us copy / paste image

  23. Hello @Rafal108. Thanks for this report. We're seeing an issue where sometimes the search results are limited as you described. The number above the note list is accurate, but the count of notes actually shown is ~120. We're looking into this now. Thank you very much for the report.

  24. Tip: If you get a new Android phone and want to continue using Evernote 8, be sure to turn off auto update right away. Auto update for apps is on by default. I got a new phone today, happily transferred my apps and settings to my new phone, and about an hour later Evernote automatically updated to version 10.

  25. Hi gazumped ... Yes. I turned it off and on. Didn't help. So I uninstalled it, and reinstalled. No luck! What made me even more upset was that, at least before I uninstalled, the Home Screen Note Titles were still on the screen, but I couldn't open them. After uninstalling and reinstalling, I had, of course, lost those. Ugh!!! They, at least, acted as placeholders. And yes, all my Notes are still on my Desktop App, as well as online. It's just on my Cell ... the one I use 75% of the time. Fortunately, it turns out Evernote has not been updated on my old Samsung Note 8, and so I'

  26. As far as I can tell, no one is saying 'get rid of the checklists feature', we're just asking EN to stop converting checkboxes to checklists. Um, no, that's just nonsense. Check this out: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005597-Create-a-checklist Under checkboxes, directly from their help website: Are you saying that "just about anywhere within a note" = everywhere but not one below the other?! What kind of logic is that? And why this distinction?? There are legitimate cases where you want a list and want checks that do not strikethrough the text, you still w

  27. I just find it stupid that Evernote decided to create 2 separate formatting options that behave differently but enforces the use of one of them. If the plan all along was to have just checklist, why the hell did they create the checkbox feature?! If they have created it and released it into the wild, leave it be, don't force the counterpart, both of them are good but serve 2 different type of scenarios, as so many users try to convey and apparently are being ignored.

  28. I agree 100%. If you're going to force all checkboxes to turn into checklists, why even bother retaining the old feature? Seems like Evernote product management is getting a little sloppy. This "feature" is very frustrating. I use Evernote for genealogical research and I use the checkbox for tracking lists sources that I've found/not found. In this use case, the checkbox represents that I've found the source. Crossing out the text is the opposite of what I want, in this case, and renders the list unreadable. Ugh. I did see the workaround, but it doesn't work very well when adding to

  29. Your new idea of checklists takes a flexible tool and makes it single use. You force us to use checklists for one purpose. If it’s not checked, it’s not done. If it is, it’s over with and done. I don’t need to see it any longer. I won’t use it again. But lists don’t have such a single, unary purpose. Some lists the default is checked. Some, the default is not check. Most of my lists are intended to be reusable sets of things. A list for a store of things I need over time over and over, I’m checking thing and then unchecking them. Some lists again the default is checked that I need it. In

  30. Electron base, really? That explains why it is so relentlessly slow even on my macbook pro with 16gb and 200Mbps optical line! It seems that these days I am spending more time on the internet searching for answers trying to somehow justify my frustration on how Evernote has gone from one of the few products that I always thought was worth paying for, to a product design that sacrifices productivity and usability over cross-platform maintainability. So far this new version has so many negative aspects that greatly outweigh the positive that this is the first time since 2012, premiu

  31. After 12 years on Evernote I have decided it is time to move on. It has the widest feature set of any comparable application but for me it fails and the most fundamental thing and that is finding a note quickly. Having tried both Apple Notes and Simplenote I can get to important notes in a fraction of the time it takes to open Evernote on IOS, and even on Windows. The wide feature set just seems to make it too slow.

  33. Thanks. It is good to see that some of the defects in the “updated” software are being remedied. However, many remain. For example: If a pdf has a non-standard page length it will not open for editing. If you click on more than one tool annotation locks up completely. You still cannot zoom a pdf. The sketch feature now works, sort of. The inking quality is worse than Penultimate prior to the Apple Pencil. The inking tools are crude and not thought out. The plus button allows you to create a table which works only if you need a table exactly three co

  35. Congratulations Evernote, you are ground breaking, the very first in software history to pass off a sub beta as the finished article (after extensive beta testing, Ha ha ha) to millions of users and then stick with it as if nothing just happened, blaming the “power users” for messing it up for you by recognising the stroke you just pulled. Those horrible 2%er power users. When I say power users what I really mean is people that actually care about the software and know how to use it properly.

  38. I raised a ticket telling all bugs that prevent me from getting to working with EN10.5.1 on all of my Android 10 devices: - extreme slow performance (app starts 15-20 seconds, freezes, key presses with no reaction) - offline notebooks not downloaded, accessing EN10.5.1 offline results into crash - images in notes after short usage of the app not displayed no matter how often installed and deinstalled or logged on/off As a premium customer I think a functioning app is something one could expect, some functionality (e.g. offline use) we explicitly pay for.

  40. I have two premium accounts and I downgraded using the apkmirror: https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/evernote-corporation/evernote/evernote-8-13-3-release/ and it worked well. I am now restored to full functionality. Evernote better fix this for the mass of users who may not be able to do this manually. (sideloading apks is risky and users need to weigh the risk reward themselves. APK mirror is generallly considered "safe" but use at your own risk. For me, EV is mission critical and I needed to downgrade to be back in production and the reward outweighed the risk. YMMV.)

  44. Not quite the same. When EN eliminated local notebooks with V10 I needed to find a way to handle the 8,500 private notes I stored therein, mostly PDFs. As they are private notes sharing is not so much a requirement other than tax time. The solution I am deploying uses a Windows root folder containing folders for years, Windows indexing (turned on for only those folders), and file explorer. To your tag point, a bit barbaric, but I append the file name with [tag1 ...], brackets included. Typically no more than three tags per document, mostly two in my case. This should preclude futur

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 somethi

I would really rather stay with Evernote because it has been invaluable to me, in particular over these past few years as an educator, but if I find a solid alternative, I may have no choice to jump-ship.
