    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 and maybe a little faith back. Communication goes a long way with things like this. Personally I would really like to see this, especially as I feel a lot of the beta feedback has been ignored. My premium subscription renewed a little while ago so I am going to cancel my auto renewal, then if it improves before it is due again (and I really hope it does) I will consider re-instating it. I am afraid I cant see the value in paying for this when there are other products available that suite my workflow better than the current build. I have enjoyed Evernote for years but personally feel this is a step back in terms of product development. If you agree please think about giving this post a vote in the hope it is picked up by the team.

    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. And it has been brilliant. So far, after an upgrade to version 10, I find the product sorely lacking for this and am seriously considering alternatives (for Windows and Android). Even to the point of test driving OneNote, Joplin, Notion and a couple of others. Key for me is the ability to use my own fonts within the app - while I know these will not convert on Android, I deal with that. Most of my time is spent in Windows. Right now I can't even change the default font from the half dozen that are available. So, in no particular order : 1) while you have moved the ability to delete/rename/edit the notebook to the second column, why not retain it on the first column anyway? I'll live with it, but even so... 2) there are no preferences available. So I can't change my data location (might be important), defaul font, or, indeed, anything. Evernote is no longer flexible or customisable. Critical. 3) You've limited the fonts available. I use my notebooks to reflect me (as notebooks) not just to record data or clippings. So the ability to personalise fonts is hugely important for me. Critical. 4) You've introduced 'Recent Notes' on the left but with no ability to hide it - so a bit of screen real estate that limits the number of notebooks I can see at once has gone. Same for shortcuts - why can't this go back where it could be - at the top. Highly desirable. 5) You've removed right click from the LH column, but kept the drag and drop behaviour that often resulted in a notebook being moved to a stack where I didn't want it. Missing a trick there - a confirmation would be helpful! I'll live with it 6) We've lost 'Print Preview' so now the only way to preview a note is to save as a PDF via PDF writer. Critical. 7) What's more we now have a fixed format of printed note.. what if I don't WANT the header on the note ( I rarely do, and I had this turned off in preferences)? Critical. 😎 You've added an extra click to the process of viewing an encrypted note. Since the most likely reason for viewing an encrypted note was simply to view it, not remove the encryption, this should have been dealt with a different way.Highly desirable 9) Once decrypted we can't just edit the note. We have to decrypt the lot, then reencrypt it. Really hecking irritating. This is beyond disastrous. This whole release has just messed up a good product without actually adding anything of value beyond the ability to choose highlighter colour (we can do this but not choose our font?). You've stripped out some of the ease of use features and the things I actually liked. The more I use it, the more I find things that are either missing or have been made worse. So. I've reverted to 'Legacy' (a tacit acknowledgement that some users are going to be less than happy). I'm currently investigating alternatives to EverNote and will be leaving the paid programme if I don't get some assurances that these things will be fixed. Knowing that this is as good as my primary day to day application is ever going to get is a real downer. [Apologies if this is in the wrong place but you've got a very dissatisfied paying customer here, and I am not alone]

    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... you know... work? I made a list of some of the basic functionality that I was waiting to see fixed. I say "fixed" because these are all things that already existed in the previous release and have not been implemented in 10.0.10. Tabs! - Imagine using a web browser and the developer removed the ability to open more than one tab at a time. My mother only uses one tab in her web browser but I suspect she might be in the minority. This was highlighted early on in the beta programme and seems to have been ignored. Local links - Again, highlighted early on and seemingly ignored. Not only does it seem impossible to create a local link to a note, existing evernote:// links no longer work. Imagine if you were a paying Evernote customer (I am) who'd created a lot of links in other applications (I have)! No need to imagine, I guess. So all the carefully-crafted links are not honoured. Why take this functionality away? Or why send out a product before it has this basic functionality included? </rhetorical> PDF Annotation Summaries - I annotate documents, research papers etc. Previously, annotations were summarised at the top of the note. Really useful stuff! That's no longer available. Not only that, my existing annotation summaries have lost all recognisable formatting. Highlights in the wrong places, text annotations pointing to the wrong text. Web Clipper - I'm not sure what's happened here but the web clipper, which used to be excellent and so much better than any competitors' solutions, is now formatting clipped content in strange and unexpected ways. What was a predictable behaviour is now a lottery. Creating a Table of Contents from multiple notes - No longer an option. Why not? I could go on (and frequently do). There are a host of curious design choices that other beta users have highlighted. I'm not quite so frustrated with those things. I can live with a quirky new way of doing something as long as it works. Why do I need to click twice on a link to open it? Who knows? It's a behaviour I'm not familiar with and seems like a curious design choice but I'm really only bothered that the link opens. TL;DR? Evernote is broken. At least, it doesn't work in a way that will allow me to keep using it without employing a lot of "workarounds". This is true of the iOS release too. (The issue about offline notebooks is well documented in the relevant forum, for example.) Having been with Evernote for 12 years, I was happy to contribute time to the Preview and Beta programmes. I liked Evernote. I encouraged friends to use it. I pestered work colleagues to download it. I don't expect to be making such encouraging noises in the future! I'm sure a huge amount of work has gone into making this new Evernote release. Perhaps this is simply a bumpy start to an exciting journey but it's not one that I'll be joining. I just want Evernote to be what it used to be, a reliable, robust 'second brain'. This release, sadly, is not a step forward.

    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 from Evernote which keeps charging and at the same time has removed crucial functions for me. Let's go to the list of CRUCIAL functions that have been removed, and that for me disfigure the whole product: - There is no way to change the color of lateral toolbar from Dark. - There is no way to put shortcuts list in the top of screen. It will not move anymore - There are only FIVE Fonts. For me that store computer code in the notes, it is A TERRIBLE choice - Desktop App is a web based one, and notes are not synchronized anymore. Just turn off your Ethernet adapter and the program will not show notes anymore. The proof is that you are able to show "developer options" that show a web page render in the right side of the screen. Another proof is you can use the old classic version side by side with the new one, so the new version 10 is not using the database files that is stored locally. - I can't change the Interface Language. I like to use English Interface, since I can have a lot of info in foruns instead to get translated the Brazilian version to English one. - I can't create a Notebook inside the Notebook stack as I always did. You need to first create the Notebook, then move it to stack - I can't grab a screen capture anymore - I can't Paste text directly to Evernote note (CTRL+shitf+V) anymore - I can't import a folder anymore - I can't un-stack a Notebook from a stack using right click mouse. I need to drag an drop them. - I can't narrow a search inside a specific Notebook or Notebook Stack. Please, if you noted some another missing feature, feel free to contribute to this list.

    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. ☹️

    (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 as we progressively roll out the update and do not need to take any action. New: Create date (and time) is now editable from Note Info Sign in with Apple is now available at log in F2 keyboard shortcut is now available to trigger a rename action for: Notebooks when focused on a notebook in the notebook menu Stacks when focused on a stack Spaces that you have edit permissions on Tags when you are focused on the tag in the tag menu (Notes is coming soon and will also be supported by a future version) When left navigation menu sections are expanded, section headers are now sticky, making them easier to navigate Fixed highlights: Internal note links created on the new Evernote, when copied from the editor as evernote:/// links, now take you to the destination note Spellcheck issues seen by some customers are now fixed and respects their OS language settings Copy image would sometimes not be available from the image’s right click menu Crash fixes, in particular for account switching particularly during switching between notebooks The first note in the note list was not properly selected when clicking a notebook from shortcuts Tag auto-suggestions would not appear after using the CTRL + ’ shortcut to jump to the tags footer Drag and dropping enex files to the note list now uses faster enex import functionality and loading UX Sketch and editor bug fixes Coming soon: Write quick notes and clip screenshots with the Evernote Helper companion app (Windows - Right-click the Evernote icon in your system tray) Quickly search and move to different note using a keyboard shortcut (Windows - Ctrl+Q) Create new audio recordings and playback audio files Top list view (the same condensed view as side-list, but the list is on top) Let us know what you think and we appreciate the continued feedback. We know we have a lot of work to do and will keep pushing. Thank you!

    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 and HTML. This was not optional; at the end of this year, browsers will stop supporting Flash, and my company's customers' business-critical applications need to continue working. Dozens, if not hundreds of enterprise customers, and tens or hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue, are on the line. We started releasing the port a year or more ago, while still supporting the Flash version. With every release, we included a clear list of what worked and what didn't, with as complete a road map as we could of when the incomplete features would be complete. We made a few usability changes along the way, and dropped only one feature that I can think of. Before deciding to drop that feature, we polled account managers to see if it would be a problem, and were told it would not be. Even with that dropped feature, we are working to implement the spirit of it in another way. Customers received the feature complete version a month or two ago, and even the ones who were slow to adopt it are now waking up and realizing they need to. Bug reports are rolling in, and we are prioritizing them over everything else, putting out patches every couple of weeks. In addition to the bug fixing, we are communicating all of this to the customers. They know what we're doing, and they know that when Flash shuts down, they will have the best replacement possible for the product they have built into their business processes. They are thrilled with us. Universally. This is how you replace the code base beneath a product.

    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 I have been doing for many years now. Upon installing version 10, I was appalled to find much of this functionality taken away. Which company has ever released an updated piece of software without a preferences menu and which seems—at a first glance at least—to be laggier than the previous one? Surely there is a better way to layer a UI to accommodate novice, casual and power users? Like others I will be clinging desperately and disappointedly to v6.xx until it no longer functions or v10 comes up to a similar level of competency.

    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.

    This is an excellent and important point. Cross-platform similarity is good; cross-platform lowest common denominator functionality is sure loser.

    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 is more usable. Why couldn't they have just introduced the (small) amount of new features for example the extra search options, into what they already have instead of "building from the ground app" an inferior app. The fact that it doesn't even have preferences is a complete joke, I literally thought I downloaded a corrupt copy or something. Extremely disappointed, I think Evernote need to be taken under new management and leadership, whatever is going on over there isn't working. Even the promotional video with that pointless awful racket playing over the top, is completely nonsensical. IMO, Evernote was best even before the last version, which I thought was bloating it up unnessecarily adding transparency effects and making the overall interface slower. Can't we just have a stripped back functional note and archive system like we had before, instead of this whatever it is.

    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 going to have to completely change the way they have done things for the last 5 years, 10 years, or even longer. Even if your policy on the past had been to not talk about future plans, you put that aside, because this is a critical juncture in your product's history, and you need to recognize that business as usual isn't going to work. You have to give your customers the information they need to make intelligent, reasoned decisions. Doing it any other way is irresponsible and shows a tremendous disregard for your customers.

    Hello all, we know there have been requests to see what specific fixes went into our most recent releases. We'll start including these fixes as part of our main App Store release notes soon, but in the meantime, posting them here: Version 10.0.2: Fixed: Too-frequent note conflicts (note duplicates) Fixed: Incorrect date formatting (not respecting 24h date format) in the note list for certain regions Fixed: Lag when editing note title Fixed: Occasional issues loading note body Fixed: Edit button not always responding Fixed: Crashes related to search Version 10.0.3: Fixed: Additional note conflict fixes (primary fix was in 10.0.2) Fixed: Slow sync/app performance when clipping multiple items using mobile clipper Fixed: Issues clipping photos Let us know if there are any questions!
  17. 11 points
    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.

    I can live with the loss of features like Outlook Clipper, some temporary inoperable shortcut keys etc, and love that the new version looks modern/clean, and says it has Dark Mode. 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? As currently I have no intention of upgrading from 6.25 So I'm respectfully requesting that @Ian Small reveals himself from lurking-mode and address/advise us on the future of this new version 10... Can you do that please Ian? Whilst concerning that the new version would be released with so many glaring deficiencies, I mostly want to know, and get assurance, that there are plans and actions being taken to make v10 awesome, as intended, and by when??? And roughly how long do v6.25 users have before EN turns it off/stops supporting it??? Has or will COVID-19 kill Evernote? Amongst the past speculative media reports on the imminent demise of Evernote, this is the 1st time that I've genuinely been worried about the future of Evernote. Sad 😞

    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 simply doesn't work. No clipped note. Zero. And this is a disaster for me as I source information from both the web browser (Safari) and Flipboard constantly. I can't do that with this new version on iOS14. I don't know if the problem is Evernote, or iOS14, or most likely both together. But iOS14 has been in the works for months, with lots of beta testers, so I can't imagine that the Evernote coding team didn't have access to iOS14. So - how can I downgrade my iOS Evernote back to the previous version, which worked just fine?

    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 of time to do their work. Yes, the screwed up big time with this, but it really was just an error of releasing too early. At least that's what I hope.

    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. FYI, the link has been altered, so it won't likely do anything for you if you do click on it. So... On Windows anyway, your data at: C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Evernote\resource-cache\UserXXXXXX you'll find hundreds or thousands of folders depending on your database - I have 37,868 folders myself. They are numbered the same as that note ID as shown above. These folders contain our attachments ONLY and an identifier. A file with no extension (that is the attachment file) and a file with a .mime extension - the mime file is telling evernote what the file is - so if you open the MIME file with a basic text editor (notepad for example) you might see application/pdf or image/jpeg for example. Thusly, if you rename the file without the extension to .PDF or .JPG you can open the file on your computer as you'd normally open a PDF or JPG file. ** Do not rename the file in this database - COPY it elsewhere if you're going to test for yourself. ALSO in this same folder is the thumbnail for your snippet note views. C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Evernote\Cache is dated yesterday and today - making me think it's a temporary cache - different files of different types in here - but all stripped of an extension so you don't know what is what. A quick look though and it appears that despite it saying "Cache", there is note info here that I haven't opened recently - so again, not sure what's up. C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Evernote\conduit-storage\https%3A%2F%2Fwww.evernote.com this appears to be our note database as an SQL file. There is a "localstorage.sql" version and a "remoteGraph.sql" (the most data) I opened up the SQL files and the remotegraph.sql file definitely has the bulk of our note text data in it. the TL;DR version - not sure if any of this is 'recoverable' if we simply backup the SQL and resource cache folders. I'd keep using the Legacy version and backup the database folder EXB file(s) until we get a proper backup and restore feature with v10 - or some better explanations as to what's going on 'behind the scenes'.

    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.

    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. The ScanSnap scanning requirement that is mentioned will only work using the ScanSnap Home software (not the the older ScanSnap Manager) but this is apparently (and as noted above) not working well and requires firmware upgrades for the old ScanSnap for Evernote scanners. It is quite possible to have the older version of Evernote (6.25) running at the same time as the new release. This is exactly what I have. This allows me to use the new version whilst still providing the ScanSnap scanning that I have used for years and Import folders. I have disk space and processor power available so running both versions isn't a big deal for me. If I had to choose one version or the other then I'd be sticking with 6.25 for now. As it is I can explore both worlds.

    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.

You need to first create the Notebook, then move it to stack - I can't grab a screen capture anymore - I can't Paste text directly to Evernote note (CTRL+shitf+V) anymore - I can't import a folder anymore - I can't un-stack a Notebook from a stack using right click mouse. I need to drag an drop them. - I can't narrow a search inside a specific Notebook or Notebook Stack. Please, if you noted some another missing feature, feel free to contribute to this list.

    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

    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 my notes to ENEX on a daily basis and I'd like to continue to do so after updating. For anyone wary of updating to the new version - how long do you forsee support for legacy versions continuing? Will there still be bug fixes and updates for those versions? Presentation Mode is something which is very useful for academic users - is there any prospect of this coming back / some sort of integration with a presentation app? Another service I use is Postach.io - will that app continue to be able to convert my notes to a blog? I can work around the Outlook Clipper no longer being supported (there's still email!) but the list of unsupported features in the help page says (again my emphasis) Can we expect an exhaustive list of 'no longer supported' features anytime soon?

    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!" Anyway... Maybe I'm just old and not understanding how things work now-a-days. Regardless... some thoughts based on my video which I've linked below. 04:30 - no idea if I'm running Evernote "offline" or not. Can't click in the note. Is that supposed to be my indication Evernote is offline? Or should I wait in case it's just a pause in the program running? Is the note fully sync'd? 05:30 - why so sluggish merely typing text. This is on an IBM Thinkpad laptop. Core i7 8th gen processor. 16gb RAM. 11:56 - is this note now synced to the server? no idea again. 12:03 - note history is broken? I didn't see that in the 'new features' of evernote. 13:30 - evernote screen shots are gone - maybe they'll make a return? Hopefully anyway - I use those daily. Here's what I'll do in the meantime. 14:38 - paste an image into Evernote is slow - this is a simple screen shot - why so slow to paste? 14:56 - why do I have to wait for the menu to turn active? 16:33 - haven't seen this bug in a while - vibrating images are back! 19:09 - "no notes found" - when offline - really bad wording - Evernote should know it is offline and tell us that - not "No notes" when it really doesn't know! Anyway.. this is just what your average CUSTOMER - yes CUSTOMER sees. BUT your average customer is not making a video to tell you these concerns. They're throwing in the towel and moving to a different application. They are not renewing after their current period is up. I'm utterly confused by what seems to be going at Evernote, but hey it's your business model. Fingers crossed we see some rapid updates and return of missing features very very soon.

    Please return the ability to turn on note counts and make them visible for notebooks in the left side bar. This is a key piece of interface information for how I (and everyone who I coach to use Evernote for GTD) use Evernote.

    I began using Evernote in its first iteration, well over a decade ago. I have been a premium user since 2008. I was an unpaid cheerleader for many, many years. 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 Evernote." The many problems I have with the update have already been noted, in most cases, more than once. What are you doing guys? How could you release an app that does not even have a preferences menu ready!? Did you talk to real actual users before making these changes? Did you test with real users? Users who completely relied on Evernote for many, many years? Is this the beginning of the end of my second brain?? Just when I thought 2020 couldn't get any worse!!!

    I completely support the tenor of the first post. I am a heavy user of Evernote, I used it for more than 10 years up to 3-4 hours per day. 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 horrible from a UX perspective (>3 clicks to add a tag, stupid navigation in the iOS app, 2 clicks required now to close a note after making changes). You also took away crucial functionality (not possible to filter a notebook by tag anymore, no formatting in codeblocks, only 4 fonts, images can't be centered,...). And to make everything even worse: Thanks to a badly programmed electron app in the background, everything is slow and unstable (sometimes clicks are just lost and I have to click again, it often takes 2-3 seconds after typing until text appears, in general it feels just slow and makes aggressive). In conclusion: I do not think that you can turn this around. Even if you manage to get this software bug free, it's still just very bad software with a very bad UX, with crucial features that are missing and a failed infrastructur. Even if you manage to make it faster (I doubt that you are able to achieve that) it stays bad software. So there is nothing for me to wait for. I started to elaborate to migrate to Notion. They offer a good migration assistent and my first assessment after 20 minutes is: Notion is amazing software. Actually I was hoping that Evernote would become this kind of software after the redesign. Turned out you made it 100% worse than the already outdated legacy versions. Guess it's time to leave now.

    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 all my notes on the cloud ALONE? I'm collecting a list of missing functions and I'll add to this node. For now, my statement is that the downgraded their own piece of software. They sacrified a robust desktop client in favour to an Andoid-like app: just the basics. Not my idea of a note taking software.

    Developers with any sense (and that is being called into question, I'm aware) don't release dates/timelines for features. 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.

    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, I want to go straight to the note inside Evernote). I want the efficiency back of single clicking on a note link and having it either: Immediately launch the external link Navigate to the note I'm internally linking to

    The New Evernote Windows Client is an absolute disaster All we have different requirements for the note-taking app. I can not share good emotions with people who like the new Evernote Windows Client 10.+ Evernote team released a new client and shut down many features the old Evernote Windows Client had. I want to say that I am fed up with Evernote and their attitude to the customers. Like many other users, I was a beta tester of their new client and reported about many bugs, lacking functionality, UI problems. I spent more than 20 hours only for testing and reporting about the beta release. I think that I am not alone who tried to help Evernote to be better. Was our feedback used by the Evernote team? No. So I want to say I fed up with Evernote and will cancel my subscription, but I can not. There are too much effort in these notes, too many hours. So what particularly missed in the new client: Manual (Forcing) Sync and Sync status. Not anymore. As well as sync status. Cards Filtering View. Not anymore. You can't operate with your cards in Cards View anymore. Forget about the GTD technic and so on. Tags Managing View. Tags View was changed on List View. You can't operate with them and see all of them now. You can't choose several of them using CTRL or SHIFT for filtering notes. Colour Tags Labels. Forget about GTD or any other managing technic. Colour Labels were eliminated. Extensive Tags and Notebooks Filtering. There is no more possibility to filter notes like this: "(any: tag:A tag:B) tag:C -tag:B todo:true." You can filter only by one tag. And you can not choose a notebook anymore where filtering should be implemented. Note History. This window opens too long and asked my credentials again. After credentials, it gives window "Oops. Something wrong" Database Export. It freezes on the biggest notebook I have. On the small one, it works. Offline Mode. Couldn't find offline mode, and it affects Evernote. Now it is working much slower. Snapshots don't work. They eliminated snapshots. Now you can't make a quick screenshot and annotate it. Expanding window for note's tags. The only small area in the basement. I can't see all tags for note anymore. Customizable toolbar. Not anymore. Multiselecting and Operating with notes. Deleting, merging, moving - now you can not do it for more than 50 notes. Shortcut keys. Many useful shortcuts were eliminated. All of these issues were reported to the Evernote team several times.

    Wow, I am a long time believer in Evernote (12 years) and have 25K notes on everything from work, life, hobby, learning etc. in it. I understand the need for a complete reset & rewrite based on the many platforms EN is on. Like many loyal fans, I stuck with EN through the desert of "no features". What I do not understand is with all the talk of new software, modern engineering practices etc. how can EN release such an incredibly buggy IOS release (and I am not even talking about IOS14, which to some degree could be Apples fault. I stayed on 13 for now to update my EN...one thing at a time) ? I'd much rather wait another 6 months than have to deal with this untested pile... Basic, basic problems that really any minimal amount of testing should have caught: my new version defaulted to download all notebooks offline on my phone. Whaaaat ? Thats 25K notes people. Obviously not working. Sync: automatic sync we never trusted, yet finding a manual sync button is possible but very deeply hidden in this version. Doing the sync shows a blank screen forever, no notice of where we are in the process (log file, % indicator, anything). I still don't know whether sync is just slow or doesn't work because notes neither update on my ios or from my phone to the desktop. Isn't syncing one of the very basic function of EN ? When I open notes, I just see an empty screen, no content, no indication it needs to load anything more etc. Isn't displaying content one of the very basic functions of EN ? I do not know how many engineers EN has left. And I certainly do not want to diminish the enormous efforts of rewriting a code base from scratch. It is a huge undertaking. However, EN is not a startup any more. And we are not beta users. Modern software practices include thorough, automated testing of basic functions before any release. I cant believe this level of buggery occurs for a mature company and heavy users with lots of data relying on that company. Flabberghasted. Retract. Test. Test more. Test even more. Try with a small and willing beta base. THEN release. PS: I wouldnt mind paying more for a heavy user subscription if I have any confidence stability was a high priority in words and deeds and it helped EN be more profitable.

    I have the same issue with the clipper, but also, nothing I do in the iOS app is actually reflected in the desktop or web app. It's like a read only version of Evernote that has been frozen. I'm also interested in getting the previous version back. This iOS version is a late apha version at best and should not be live.

    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. Apps tend to come and go according to the whims and finances of their individual business interests that (quite properly) totally ignore my situation in any decision making process. When - and it's always when, not if - an app changes, I need to find a way around that issue so I can get back to my tasks. I'll either change my workflow, or I'll change the app. That's it. No other choices, no winging that the app provider has failed to meet my expectations... well, not much anyway. Those nasty task thingies are still hanging around, and it's going to be me on the firing line if they don't get processed. I need to choose better apps. Before I get the old 'fanboi!' reaction - I'm not defending Evernote here in any way. I think that Ian Small (the man in the 'buck stops here' desk) has presided over the worst bit of user support in Evernote's not particularly impressive history. He presents - in another third party video* - the reassuring news that launching the new app was not the aim of their re-coding exercise. This is just the first step in recreating the full Evernote experience from the ground up. More and more legacy features plus new shiny ones will be released during this year. That should have been on the table before the launch - and definitely before the very basic new app dropped on iOS. But. We are where we are. I'll not pretend I'm not also evaluating alternatives, but I'm staying with Evernote - I may even renew my subscription again - whilst continuing to hit tasks with my Legacy Evernote. I look forward to more updates with interest and hope. * Someone else flagged this new video - sorry I forgot to link back to that...

    In the old version there is a search icon in the sidebar. If I wanted to look at recent workouts I would press that Icon, press wo, press the workout tag that appeared, and be presented with a list of workout notes newest first. Quick and clean. In this version for the same action I press All notes, press Search, press wo, press the workout tag and am presented with a jumbled list of workout notes. One from 2014 near the top of the list. Useless with an additional press included The incremental winnowing of tags in a compound tag search is very nice, but with no way to sort the results. Useless. There does not appear to be any sorting of search results. Useless. I guess I’m saying there should be a way to sort search results. I hope I am missing it and someone will correct me. But I can’t find it.

    The customer support staff (Jeffrey) are people too, and I don’t think we should be demonizing them for doing their job. The same is true for the developers. This is their livelihood, and I’m sure they are doing their best to develop a quality product, so threatening legal action or trying to organize a mass cancelation of subscriptions (their income) is quite unfair. I think we ought to voice our opinions (I have in many places in this forum), even (especially?) if they are at odds with Evernote’s, but we should try our best to do it in a mutually respectful manner. This is an app we all care about, right? We want to see it succeed and be better. I agree that there are problems eith the current release (enumerated elsewhere), but I think arguing the merits of our position is a better strategy than threats to leave or using the *Evernote* forums to promote alternatives. Let’s try and keep it positive, and give Evernote something they can work with

    So three hundred thousand people didn't want to sort search results on IOS and were okay with a three minute lag for an update to appear in search results in general. Good to know.

    Evernote - can we get a list of features removed please... otherwise, here is some initial feedback: Removed Features (unless I'm just not seeing them elsewhere): - offline notes / local databases (a timeline on when this is expected to return would be quite helpful to us travelers!) - import folders - shortcut keys - ability to screenshot into Evernote (ack!) Sure hope this comes back real soon! - export entire notebooks - found this under the notebooks overview section Broken/Buggy: - http links in the note open a browser window - this is expected behavior.... BUT I have a lot of Evernote note links with http instead of the evernote:/// structure -- could the Evernote app perhaps parse Evernote http links and just open in the app window? Just an idea anyway... I've got a lot (thousands) of note links to change otherwise. - is the time zone bug fixed yet? I noticed this on the beta - my "created today" notes essentially disappear at the stroke of midnight in a different time zone than mine. Other: - since we're in a web wrapper now - is there a timeline to a Linux release?

    Who says and who really thinks, there is still a chance? The decision for unification, at the end with Elektron, was made more than 2 years ago. As far as I can see there had allready been long discussions abaout pros and cons regarding Elektron - before the decision and during "reconstruction" of the new Evernote. We now see a complete different Evernote product on nearly all plattforms except of Android (which might come soon..). It surely will not be by accident, that all these versions start with 10.x, leaving out 9.# on iOS, 8.# on MacOs and 7.# on Windows. This seems to speak for a new approach and a new - so far streamlined and stripped, unificated - product -- all this as a strategical decision by management or by stakeholders. And look out, how the discussions are treated in this forum: only a few things are handled as bugs, the most is dicussed as "request". I assume these requests are used to filter out, which of the nearly uncountable additional functions and features of the former different plattform-versions are really essential - at least to most of us. We may wonder and discuss about reasons, we may whine or complain about bugs or missing and beloved former and in some cases OS-specific features and functions. But I can't see, that there is any way to turn the wheel back. I think therefore it's more important to give reasons for (re-) implementing functions and features and to vote for it as request for all those, who like to stay with Evernote as their note-taking and productivity tool, than to condemn the people we have to rely on

    I've been an evernote user since january of 2010, but started to use it as the basis of pretty much all my digital processes in 2013. and I have loved it. boy, have I loved it. family, friends, neighbours and colleagues, all of them have been indoctrinated by me to join my enthusiasm. some got annoyed, some smiled, but many have become converts. Now Evernote certainly did not make it easy to continue to use and love the product over recent years, but I hung in there. Ian's smart and funny videos finally indicated things were moving again and the fact that while there were shinier and more capable tools out there Evernote continued to be a reliable and oh so unbelievably flexible workhorse. I was already somewhat skeptical when it transcended that electron, a web development environment, would be the basis of the rebuild, but hey, I am not a coder, so what do I know. so there was still considerable enthusiasm on my end when I finally saw the note of version 10 coming out. fortunately I did not install right away, but took the time to go through the release notes. and there it was: no more local notebooks. and not even a comment or a hint on any substitute for them. maybe optional zero knowledge encryption of local notebooks instead? no word about it. could have turned the loss into a benefit. not happening. at least not for now. maybe it is a european thing or maybe it is just me, but there is no way I would send my financial or medical information or some other private data unencrypted into the cloud. not even evernote's (which is actually google's cloud, isn't it?!). and a quick row call with my converts shows a lot of agreement there. this is a sad day (for me). in some interview Ian had indicated three main new features will be coming in the next few months, so maybe, just maybe, zero knowledge encryption of notebooks is one of them, but I will not hold my breath considering there is not more uproar here about the missing local notebooks. I guess I need to start contemplating a heart transplant for my digital processes. so, while I wait for the next three things Ian has hinted at: what other tools are out there on the mac? my current favorite would be devonthink, but would be curious about other pointers. cheers, Lorenz

    +1 --- equally, if not more, important would be the ability to open multiple Evernote windows. This was a feature in Mac well before the "tabs" feature was implemented years ago, and it is definitely frustrating to not be able to open two instances of the window on Mac, especially with multiple monitors and MacOS "spaces". Really hoping this comes back together with tabs

    Hi everyone--appreciate the feedback thus far. For two of the noted features above--we're continuing to work on internal links and their functionality. With regard to classic links and internal links, I'm testing against both and seeing them route correctly within the new Evernote. We have a future release to improve them when pasted outside of Evernote, but internally to Evernote they should be working on the latest version. What are you experiencing? As for TOC, you can now copy any combination of multi selected notes into a bulleted or numbered list in the editor, creating your own table of contents note, and re-arrange it using the editor's drag and drop capabilities for the bulleted list. It adds two steps, but increases the overall flexibility of being able to apply groups of note links throughout. Additionally, we remember the order in which you have selected the notes, meaning you can quickly compile your TOC list (or any list) of note links quickly for pasting into any note. Would really love to hear if that additional flexibility expands and improves upon the TOC functionality.
