  1. It’s getting worse! Now the November Digest is welcoming us to the September digest. Nice metaphor for the black hole that is 2020...

  2. "Update: Email a Copy of a Note" goes to an empty page here: https://discussion.evernote.com/announcement/170-update-email-a-copy-of-a-note/ Would like to know about it—thanks!

  3. On Windows, when there's an obious sync bug, I close Evernote from the Windows tray. Same as app menu "File" / "Quit". Evernote is then relaunched, and syncs.

  4. If you google "Evernote Problems" it will be quite apparent that this company is not long for this world. They've essentially dropped any efforts for customer support, and I suspect they may have let go the people who might have been motivated and skilled enough to undo the complete mess they've made of their latest update. Just so you know, (at least until EverNote inactivates export to hold us hostage) you can quite painlessly export all your folders to your hard drive, and then import them to other programs. I chose to use the (completely free!) OneNote, from much-derided Micro$oft. Just be sure you have a OneDrive account (which is where your imported files will live) linked to your current microsoft account. I had some initial trouble, but then MS support (there are actually human beings who work at Microsoft who help people) was able to identify the problem, fix it, and now I've transferred all my folders there. The platform is a little different, but with a minimal learning curve, works better than the latest (maybe last?) iteration of EverNote. I've subscribed for a decade, and am a bit nostalgic, but the current problem, with people kvetching on the forum, but with no power to fix things, is the antidote. I would ask current forum participants: What would/will you do if EverNote suddenly disappears and your files are gone forever? BTW, to import into OneNote, there's a free app called "StartOneNoteImporter.exe. At about 1 note/sec, and thousands (5.4 GB) of notes, be prepared, wherever you go, to spend some time. You import 1 folder at a time. I have checked with some platforms, possibly better than OneNote, but they don't have an auto-import feature. Best wishes and condolences to all. I'm outta here.

  5. No sync on demand in the desktop versions of EN v10 any longer. In iOS you can pull down the left column, which forces a sync. With desktop, it is said to auto-sync permanently. As a workaround, you could try to take the desktop offline (switch off WiFi, pull the LAN-cable). Make sure you are logged into your EN client before you do so. When you reestablish the connection, it should sync. But this is not what used to be a forced sync, which egalized differences between server and local copy.

  7. OK great, thanks. I think I'll stick with Plus. Going back to early on with Evernote (I've had it since 2008) I had a discounted Premium subscription for a year, but I switched back to Plus because I no longer needed the Premium features due to changes in my work situation. Currently there's nothing in the extra features of Premium that I need, and although the ability to edit the home page would be nice it's not a deal breaker.

  8. Someone on another thread listed a 3rd party APK site to be able to re-install the previous Android version. I managed to get back to the June 2020 Android version and things are back to normal... Thank you Tavor. "If I were on v10 and wanted to roll back, I'd get the prior version apk from this site (have used them multiple times in the past, never had any malware): https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/evernote-corporation/evernote/evernote-8-13-3-release/"

  9. The Android version 10 is, at best, a beta version closely related to the POS released for the desktop version (iOS & Windows). First, EN should have communicated the rollout and, second, given us the opportunity to choose whether to install or not. I do not 'get' this fascination with 'dark mode' and that it is some sort of a programming breakthrough. Really, too much white space? This app is not intuitive - have you tried to find the sync function yet? - . It slow to load and slow to respond to menu selections. And if you are worried about white space - it could use a bit more and not eat up the screen with oversized elements like the TITLE - which is headline size - and note formatting bar where the quick actions are now in a buried menu. I want the old version back until this one is fixed. Where can I download & install it?

  10. 1. I actually like the changes in UX. Dark mode is superb. Before it was just too much white space. Old Evernote version looked like some kind legacy JAVA project. Now it looks modern and inviting. I understand the benefit of leaving old interface, some products are famous for that such as Corel Draw but the old Evernote's interface needed a serious overhaul. 2. About the cost, its a commercial product and not Wikipedia. The benefits of Evernote are much greater than the cost. Evernote is not in the game of selling user's data so the free version is major benefit. 3. My own issue is partial support for RTL languages but Evernote never stated that it supports this feature. So in some cases I just write in English (its my third language, you probably guessed that with my grammatical errors). 4. The current speed of updates is really fast compared to the past. 5. Yep, some features are gone but I see that they coming back in new version. I guess some will never come back but hey its life. In conclusion, Evernote good job.

  11. Guys, the new Android version is not an improvement. It has one major issue, one avaricious change, and a UI failure. Major issue: can no longer use shortcuts on Android. This greatly reduces Evernote's functionality because you might have 100's of organizing tags, notebooks, etc, but your top 3 as shortcuts. Without one, you have to use the big tree view - slows you down a lot. Avaricious issue: The web version is now a "device". Got to stop all those terrible people who use the web version to add devices or use evernote on their spare Linux box without the paid version, right? Gee whiz though, the app isn't THAT awesome. You could have put the effort into fixing lists and spellcheck. Well, here's what you lose: for 5 years when presenting, I've answered the inevitable question with, "oh, that? That's Evernote. You should try it!" I guess today was the last time THAT happens. Companies that cheap out on the free version don't get me as a paid customer, but you also don't get me promoting you anymore - I'm sure SOME of those I introduced signed up for the paid version. UI failure: I think the new version is made for a tablet, or at least a phone bigger than my - wait, my S9 Note is big! Well, it doesn't work well, anyhow; and squanders its screen real estate shamefully. It's been real - but these are bad enough to make me start coding my own solution 🙄

  13. Anybody have a clue how to sync this thing on demand? I miss my SYNC button and I dearly miss being able to modify Creation Date right on the note. Ctrl-Shift-I completely stifles workflow. It seems a lot slower too.

  15. Another good link to include here would be Keyboard shortcuts in Evernote for Windows, with its comparison between the current and older versions.

  16. Very poor position and response on custom fonts tells me Evernote chief designers are out of touch with development standards and makes me question investing any more of my future with Evernote. Having run large development groups for 30 years, I suggest new project leaders. This type of attitude about product design goes deep in whoever is in charge. They rarely change much. Evernote's future is in trouble.

  17. Times New Roman is a Windows font - the license is bound to the OS, it is not platform neutral. The decision for a fixed font set in all clients is a decision for notes that look and work alike on all platforms. Asking for OS-specific fonts is of course ok - but is against the philosophy on which v10 was build. To replace TNR, you can use the Serif font. If you want an omelette, you have to crack some eggs.

  18. Ever since the new update, Evernote is slow to save my clips & sometimes doesn’t save them at all!
