  1. Excel has more than 400 functions. Can you please post a copy of your answer to Microsoft, listing all Excel functions that were coded into Excel without your consent and desire to use them ? I am sure you get a new Excel, stripped down to the 17 functions that got a thumbs up from you … EN is a package - other users are happy to get additional options without additional cost. If you don’t like the tasks feature, nobody forces you to use it.

  2. I'll wager that once you try using tasks, you'll appreciate the function. It adds greatly to the concept of taking notes and getting things done.

  4. Hi, I just went through support (ticket# 3383733) to be confirmed, that Evernote 10 for Android has NO background sync capabilities. Back in the days EN 8.13.3 could be set to a specific sync interval for background syncing so that when you start the app you are good to go with the remote changes already being on your device. In 2021 we have push syncing cloud services. OneNote and Google Keep do real time syncing without even having to start the app. Let's look what missing background syncing means at the moment: - no remote changes on scratchpads are on your mobile when you fire up EN10 on the go (having to wait 20-60 seconds to load then) - no remote set or changed reminders are on your mobile so you are likely to miss your reminders (this happens to me regularly) - no remote changes in your notes contained in offline notebooks are downloaded to your device so you cannot rely on having the latest stuff on the device when being offline later. - when firing up EN for Android I have to wait around 20-60 seconds to have "home"-screen updated completely if EN did not run for some hours on mobile. Support seriously told me, to be sure to have these standards features you have to open the mobile app after every time you did a change on web or desktop. If you collaborate with others you don't know about the changes and are out of luck. I suggest re-adding a background or push sync Android service to EN10 that could ensure this basic syncing stuff by updating the database in the background (as back in EN8.13.3).

  6. By scrapping an old, overly complex and not maintainable software and start with an empty sheet. This is how the new clients were born. My personal use is shifting more and more over to v10, as with new releases new and old features are rolled out, adding to the toolbox. In some aspects v10 is already the better product, in many it may be different, but on par, and some are still not working as I would expect them to do. Your experience may be different, as we are 2 different users. If what you get does not spark joy for you when using it, make a cut and move on. Looking back in a nostalgic mood does not do any good for you.

  8. A Free user practically lives of the marketing budget. And who pays writes the rules … Ridiculous is to believe a commercial enterprise would be a charity, and to expect a free lunch - every day, for life. It was called communism, and in case nobody told you: They tried, it did not work. As I see it you have 3 simple options, and is is your decision, not ENs which you choose: Stay on Free, accept some nagging as part of the deal Subscripe Leave

  9. Hello! Today we released Evernote for Mac 10.22.3. This release is primarily a bugfix release. It is available now via the Mac App Store and as a direct download version from our website. If you are already running one of these versions, we are progressively rolling out to compatible devices and the new version will be available on all supported operating systems within 7 days. To learn how Evernote delivers app updates, when you’re eligible for an update, and how to update your Evernote app, visit How Evernote delivers app updates to our customers. New to Mac 10.22 The app has improved link recognition in your notes. Now it'll automatically convert web URLs, phone numbers, and email addresses to clickable links; and links can also open local files and default apps like Zoom. Fixed highlights: We fixed a bug where the tasks view wouldn’t load if you’d been assigned a task and then you subsequently lost access to the task’s parent note or notebook. Previously, you couldn't select the first task in your list if it was at the top of a note. But it should be smooth sailing now. We've made some improvements to the keyboard shortcuts menu keyboard navigation. Let us know what you think and we appreciate the continued feedback. We will keep hard at work! Thank you!

  11. thank you for the suggestion. I have more than a decade of lovingly tagged notes that I might want to read some time. searching by tags is such elemental, basic, key functionality of evernote that it should never ever not work. sadly the "ever not" approach is what evenote now stands for

  12. I've been with Evernote ever since it used a calculator roll display, so likewise long-term and sticking with Legacy unless and until the wrinkles get ironed out of the new version. The problem with Evernote, I think, was that they decided to listen to users - who wanted (amongst many other things) the same experience on all devices in all operating systems including the web; and a standard layout no matter what size display. Sadly that didn't allow for the fact that the UI had to be dumbed down so the worst-featured device could operate as smoothly as all the others - and the fonts available had to be restricted to ones that were available to all displays and all systems. Evernote tried to fit in with that by using a 'wrapper' app that allows it to function on most devices - but no-one in house had any great experience with coding for that type of software. So I'd guess they brought in new hires and temporary staff and tried to reinvent the app from the ground up. Pretty much everything else - slowness, glitches and missing features - flows from that. It'll clear up or it won't. The company is on iteration 22 or so of the version, so they're clearly working very hard to get things up to speed, and have been pretty successful in some areas... Evernote wouldn't be the first of my favourite apps to bring in new services that fundamentally changed the way I use it. I bet it won't be the last.

  18. EN is practically a browser extension (a large one) running inside of a framework - which itself is a browser based on Chrome(ium), not showing itself behind the app. So you have a Chrome browser open (infamous for the use of resources) running the EN app with several in-browser processes. No surprise there is a lot going on even when it seems idling along. Methods to tame it a bit: Use small(er) notes, avoid a lot of text in a single note Turn off the spell checker when you don’t need it If it seems stuck at a high CPU load, quit the app (not only hit the X, really use the menu) and restart it.

  20. I wonder if you have something odd inside your Windows preferences. Because I get exactly what I infer you require. I double click, or choose right-click Open, and Acrobat opens containing the PDF. For me, Save As is a separate menu itme on right-click. You could do the standard Quit and reboot the PC or, more likely, completely uninstall Evernote 10, ensure that the data and program directories are deleted then reinstall and let Evernote rebuild itself.

  21. I have been having the exact same problem with Evernote web clipper version 7.14.0.197-9b195f3 and gmail using chrome Version 93.0.4577.82. I have a business account and every employee account is experiencing the same issue. In addition to the gmail recognition issue, all my employees have been complaining that the clipper crashing. I have experienced the clipper crashing recently from time to time as well , I logged out and back in and cleared the chrome cache and it works but the clipper is still temperamental. This is happening on computers using windows 10 and chrome os. JayBob this does not give me a warm fuzzy feeling. The clipper has been a rock solid Evernote service for years. The ability to easily get emails into Evernote has been kept me loyal since 2012 . I hope it doesn't change.

  22. You could try to use the HTML export where the attachements are saved in seperate folders per note. This prevents name clashing in case of duplicate attachment names in different notes

  24. For over 10 years that I have been using Evernote I have loved that you could come back fast to the notebook and note you were previously working on when opening the app. SInce the last update to v.10.8.2 you have decided that we want to start in Home when we open the app without asking us and even worst, without letting use choose if we wanted this change. Please give us the option to start the app in the latest notebook used as it has been since the start. Many of us do not use or want to use your new Home page. If you have decided to invest resources in things like Home that the vast majority of your user base didn't ask for it is your own (wrong) decision, but please don't try to shoehorn things like this into our workflow, the only thing you do is alienate your user base. It's puzzling how you dedicate resources to things like Home instead of working in really useful features like e.g., a way to create an in-note table of contents with internal note hyperlinks, something your user base have been screaming for almost since day 1 and that your competition offer years ago.

  25. Previously, the elephant icon in the menu bar would stay permanently in the menu bar even after quitting the app. This was incredibly useful, because the helper could be used as an extremely accessible to-do list throughout the day, as well as a tool to quickly save links and ideas for later without having to open the entire app (which is much slower). With version 10, whenever I quit the Evernote app, the helper disappears with it, rendering the function pretty much useless. This also doesn't work on the legacy version Overall, this has taken away one of the few main uses I have for Evernote. Would really like the permanent helper icon back, without needing to open the app!!

  27. I wanted to ask, if it is possible to STOP closing a note by horizontal swipe, because you CANNOT work with tables inside a note or just scroll down normally, because the horizontal swipe is very sensitive and every time you swipe horizontally inside the note, table, etc. or scrolling down, the note gets closed by this horizontal swipe and it is really annoying when the note is closed every time, but you don't want it... So, I hope you can turn this horizontal swipe feature on and off, so that you can only exit the note by clicking on the back icon in the top left corner (for users who want it turned off like me). Thanks 😊 (A support ticket I submitted recently, I hope more people will take notice of this annoying "problem".... (I already found a few people who find it annoying too). It would actually be fixed quickly by a few lines of code...)

  28. I'm returning with Evernote hoping that this is a great note-taking and organizing tool but, as others said, I have 99.9% of my meetings in Outlook Calendar so I'll be anxious waiting for that native integration. I'm evaluating moving from Priority Matrix to Evernote subscription and that integration is one of the "must" that I need to stay. At this time I'm paying both subscription while I'm evaluating Evernote Professional.

  29. By infrequently, I meant that it only be active for exceptional notes. I haven't found any features that provide the same capability. In my notes, I often use a label that is tag_ followed by something useful. For example, "tag_important_data". I could put such tags into the "remark". Then I could do a search of all my tags "tag_" to find all my important comments. I won't attempt a feature request because the android version is still missing some basic features. Thanks for your response and helpful suggestion.

  30. You can see just the aleatory interval between 2013-2029, if you want to select a year before this you have to: 1. Select 2013 2. Open the year menu again 3. Select the year you want, because only now maybe the year will apear in the new interval

  31. Yes it's just the back button in Firefox, the expected behaviour would be to return back to the table of contents page. If this is a limitation I guess I'll have to create 'back' note links.

  34. My experience with iOS has been the same, so I was surprised. This problem started after my other problem with tasks. I was working directly with EN support and doing what they told me to do. I did dump all data, switch both devices all the way off (I have it for iPad and iPhone), waited about 20 minutes, turned it on, and reinstalled. Still an issue.

  38. I may have assumed (wrongly) that the "&" in the tag name caused problems when I searched by tag name on Android. Sometimes the search would return no notes (or fewer) than EN on Windows. I now noticed that if I just stay on the search results (on Android) it will eventually show all the notes. My second assumption was that when I hit the sync button on my phone that it would update the number of notes with a specific tag but it doesn't. So the take away is "&" in a tag name is fine but syncing on Android does not update the number of notes with a specific tag, but by staying on the search page (on Android) all the notes would eventually show up. It would be nice to have a definitive list of symbols to avoid in tag names but your post definitely got me on the right track.

  40. Hi All, We believe this issue has been fixed or desktop users in our most recent update, version 10.21. You can learn more here: https://discussion.evernote.com/announcement/224-update-evernote-1021-for-mac-windows-and-web-is-here/ We're currently working to implement a similar fix for our mobile platforms. I'll follow-up here once there is an update on our mobile updates.

  41. Literally, nobody said moron but you. I'd trade away ALL my feature requests if we could do away with your brand of sarcastic, unhelpful moderation. Reminder that I pay for Evernote, so I'll go ahead and ask for the things I want from it in order to get the most out of it. That's literally what this board is for. The various workaround and alternatives you and others suggest won't do the trick. That's why people continue to ask for this (and other) features. BTW, whats being asked for here isn't radical. I'm guessing you have enough knowledge and experience to be helpful, but it feels too difficult, if those of us on the board just wear you out with our input, maybe you should hang up the cleats for a while.

  42. Never thought Evernote developers are morons, clearly there's brilliance in it. They simply have priorities and many things are improving drastically, that's why I came back to boost the signal of this. Especially since links took a step backwards recently and go to the web UI. One could say, a person who seems to spend their whole life on the forum of a note-taking app and seems to reply to everything is exhibiting moronic behavior. I wouldn't say that though, but one might. Linking "is" part of the future. Maybe not in the near-term for Evernote, I can live with it and thrive regardless.

  43. The Android update is not an update it is a suicide note. For some reason, if I delete then reinstall Evernote, the legacy version is installed, then is updated. So if you do this, then disable automatic app updates, you can keep the legacy version - which actually works.

  44. It would be great to be able to add subtasks under a task... since they display similar to a bullet item or check list item, it kept feeling like I should be able to indent the task so that it falls under another one. It would also be great to be able to fill out a few tasks so that they are cascading where completing one makes the next one in the list now ready to do.

  45. I have a calendar note with a lot of text links to YouTube videos that I copy and paste to different areas of the note depending on my needs. Recently when I copy and paste a link, it automatically embeds the video, messing up the format of the calendar. Every time I paste a link, I have to do an undo action to make it revert back to a regular link. I guess it's not the worst thing in the world as long as undo continues to work, but if possible I would like to find a way to prevent it from doing that in the first place.

  46. How can one go back to the previous version of Evernote? The current one is unusable. The latest version of Evernote takes five seconds to open on a phone with Snapdragon 855. Hyperlinks in notes don't open any longer. Search is slow. I'm not sure why the decision was made to release this Evernote version without proper testing but at least provide a way to go back to the previous version. Thank you. 😊

  47. This is rather disappointing. Outlook is a widely used application, and in most professional settings, we still have Office installed locally, not Outlook 365. Having the Add-In was a huge time saver to clip emails into Evernote, as well as to tag them within the Add-In, and see right away how it will end up in Evernote. I realize we can email them to our Premium account, but to simply make the decision to deprecate such a popular feature really should have been better thought out when so many users relied on that functionality.

  48. It is so slow for me that I cannot even test it out for a long period of time to see how it works. For work, we have remote desktop, it is even slower on that. I click on a note and wait 10 second if not more to note to load up and change. Same with typing, I type and wait for the word to show up. V6.25 works just fine via the remote desktop. I have it on the local desktop too but even that is not fast enough. Load times are really hindering the workflow and efficiency of using a "productivity app" which is supposed to let me find notes, reference material and more very quickly. There are good additions to the app like even editing a scanned business card and adding a photo to that. But those adds are really shadowed with the "major" issues and removed features unfortunately.

  50. This is the one feature I am still waiting on. I stopped using Evernote for homeschooling, though I keep looking at it periodically. But as a recipe book Evernote would be ideal. Unfortunately the thumbnail snippet needs to be the image I choose. Otherwise it doesn’t do any good. Why are we still waiting on this feature?
