  1. I've been an Evernote user back to the first beta in 2008 (user ~2400 - according to an email from Evernote). Following the fiasco which is the latest release - I've been looking around for alternatives to Evernote - Nimbus and Notion being my current testing choices. Funnily enough though, the best alternative I've found so far is Evernote Legacy. I cannot believe how the development and release process has been handled so badly for a mature product with millions of users. Relying on Evernote Legacy is not an option though - given there is absolutely no commitment to keeping it runn

  2. First of all, let's not blame developers for what senior and project management failures exist in Evernote. As both a software developer and a project management professional (PMP), I can attest how projects like this play out and this is not a developer-driven collapse. I think even suggesting it is is unfair to the Evernote development team. Next, I too have been using and paying for Evernote since 2011--daily! Overall I still consider my Evernote experience positive when considering my entire history with it. That said, the past two or so years have been quite lacking--in my opinion--

  3. The new version sucks. Evernote began to consume 3-4 times more memory (more than 1 GB with 4 notes open), which is why the application slows down. The old version consumes 200-300 MB for the same number of notes. Even in the worst of times, when everyone called Evernote "the slowed-down elephant," the notebook ran faster. Side panel! Seriously? I see only a few tags on the 13-inch display instead of 20 in the old version. Do you call this "making a spacious design"? The new panel was not created to work with information. Colored tags! They made it possible to work very quickly

  4. I can't even begin to describe how awful the new version is. I've been a paid subscriber to Evernote since January, 2011. $5 a month. Updates have been up and down over the years, but I've generally been able to count on the app to just work. The Version 6.25 was fast, functional, and I could have lived with it for years to come. Version 10 is ridiculously terrible. I honestly can't even troubleshoot it to count the flaws because it is too FRUSTRATING to even operate. The left panel will suddenly cover up half the panel with note names so I can't see my notes, 30 seconds to load a note, c

  5. I'm under the impression from tech support that pubic notebooks have been removed from v10: "We made a decision to discontinue support for published personal notebooks, also known as public notebooks. We understand this is a feature you’ve been using and we're sorry for any changes to your workflow this may cause. Any public notebooks you currently have will continue to work with their public URL, but you are unable to create new public notebooks in the new Evernote apps." Although I can understand that this feature removal is likely because your internal data shows that this is a fe

  6. PLEASE, FOR YOUR OWN GOOD, GIVE EVERNOTE A CHANCE TO APOLOGIZE AND IMPROVE. I have been using Evernote since 2011, happily. The last release gives me, like many other fellow users, multiple headaches. A lot of our favorite features are gone. Some new features are not user friendly. Performance is slow. PR was poor. Yes, it should have stayed in beta mode much longer. This holds also true: Evernotes basic intentions for this total make over are legit and logical. They just had to escape the dead end street. Potentially Evernote is still the best organizer out there. I understand the anger and f

  7. I've contributed to various threads about how the new search system works. There are however a number of issues which I, and other people, think need to be addressed beyond "it's different". This is my attempt to pull together all those issues. If I've missed anything (and I'm sure I will have done) then please post a reply. I'm hoping that the promised replacement of ctrl-Q will address some of the issues. Delay (up to 3 minutes was quoted in the beta) before changes to notes (including tags) are reflected in search Search results are not dynamic. Unlike the legacy ver

  10. So I used Evernote for android Beta for a bit and as said its in Beta. It has issues expected in a beta release like Images attached do not appear as images, but rather as attachments. The app was considerably slower too, but this was a couple of weeks back. Adding Tags was especially laggy. Responses got registered with a few seconds lag. The new editor worked good and even search was ok. As you said android lacked the most features in the stable version anyways, so don't remember if any old feature got cut in the beta. All in all, it was use-able but due to the general lag I opted out of bet

  11. I have been a user for 10 years and paying for Premium or Plus pretty much the whole time. Not what some would consider a power user, but I have some set workflows that still are working just fine for the most part. I am leaning towards liking this new app and see it is a positive direction. Both the Mac and iOS versions. Are there hiccups? Yep. Can you use legacy? On Mac, yep! I am going to be patient and see how things shake out. But again I think it is making steps in the right direction. Maybe some more beta testing would have been better though. I am hopeful that they resolve the o

  13. Hi, Dissapointed in the new version 10.1.7 Windows client Basic features missing: - Top list viewing mode unavailable. - Sorting on tags column impossible. Besides that software feels slow and bloats. I would like to downgrade or something, this doesn't make sense and certainly doesn't make me productive. Don't fix things which aren't broken. Cancelling my automatic subscription for now. Evernote: you just lost me.

  14. It’s not a web app from what I understand. I think this view is based on a hate of electron and a twisting of some of what Ian said. He said look at the web and it will give you and idea where we are going, it has for that look is being implemented elsewhere. He has recently said that each app has shared code but each will evolve in ways appropriate for the platform it’s used on so its not the case all are the web app. A lot of this seems to come from some people’s strong dislike of electron which is the JavaScript platform they have used to write the new apps. Some people despise this and bec

  16. I would be really interested in whether people who use EN to implement GTD can cope with the time lag between adding or deleting a tag and that change being searchable or filterable.

  17. I agree completely. I had no desire to leave Evernote, and Apple requires a few weird workarounds but I found myself having few viable choices: --Evernote for iOS is broken and there seems to be no focus on fixing it. --Communication from Evernote is nil. --OneNote, although it has great features, is very inconsistent between platforms, doesn't work well on iPhone and search is good but not great. Plus, my brief experiment moving some notes from Evernote was an abject disaster. --Bear has a great editor and organization system, but really doesn't have the feature set fo

  18. Morning all, went here in hopes of finding a solution to similar issue described above. I added notes on Thursday and Friday of last week to an existing note. I opened this morning to review and use, but seems like it needed an update. The notes aren't there and I'm trying not to freak out. I've checked trash and other notes as well. @Shane D. hoping you can assist me as well. - Kaleena

  21. Mac user - after updating to v 10.1.7 app version it won't login either with account login or Google. Just sits there with the three dots moving endlessly. Can login from Mobile or web browser. Is there a way I can downgrade to an older version until this is fixed?

  22. Exactly. With the multiple selection of tags with ctrl+mouse in the old version we could choose to search with an AND/OR operation. But in addition, selecting multiple tags from the sidebar also allowed us to apply an OR search operation directly through the hierarchical structure, as you said. Now we can only do an OR search using the syntax commands. I’ve created a request thread.

  23. I never thought of Apple Notes until Evernote v10 sucks. Apple Notes is very solid and reliable and fast. Notebooks can be moved and arranged as I like through drag and drop, unlike in Evernote in which renaming is needed. Unwillingness to communicate with users, just say something through YouTubers' interviews, is a deal breaker for me. They update iOS version to v10.0.4 and stop. They may be working their best insisting on launching the Android version. Nice they have grit like this! If Evernote is sincere, please issue an official statement through your website about the roadmap a

  24. No point in complaining or threatening but I want TO HEAR WHAT EVERNOTE HAS TO SAY about this. Are you moving forward with V 10 or cutting your losses? My subscription expires soon. I created a trouble ticket to inquire but you’d think they would just come forward and let everyone know what their plans are.

  26. Hello, sorry if I mention points that have already been mentioned. And excuse my English, I'm not a native speaker. I'm also speechless about this good-looking pile of junk Evernote presented us with version 10. I also installed the legacy version directly. The user interface may be a bit more fancy and slimmer than before, but I don't get much out of it, when for me basic functions of my (previous) favorite productivity machine are suddenly missing! I'm really very surprised how they can think that nobody would miss these features: 1. no more possibility to "pin" the favorite notes in

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

  30. Can't sort on any of the extra columns you can access in the list view which does somewhat reduce it's usefulness. Sorting by tags was a great quick and dirty way of spotting notes which don't have tags without having to use the advanced search syntax. Given that tags are now listed in the order you added them and not alphabetically, sorting by tags might not give you the desired results.

  31. Well, I have to say mine was a knee-jerk post after waiting years for some signs of improvements to various shortfalls in the application and observing the company's various restructurings. Scanning through the forums now though, I'm concerned about a number of issue reports, primarily the move towards becoming a web app. and the synchronization changes. My first few minutes, though, have been much better than I would have expected. I haven't tested thoroughly by any measure and hope the legacy version remains functional for the foreseeable future (just in case). I do believe that an

  33. Well I am Ok with using the Legacy version for a while. But, sure, I will look for an alternative. With 300 notebooks and 40k notes, switching is a pensez-y bien! Notion seems to be very interesting and quite powerful. But my workflow relies heavily on the simple yet very powerful tag/notebook system.

  34. Tabs are also essential to my workflow. Though I could never understand why on earth in the previous (mac) version, the tabs weren't labelled correctly – the tab just gave the name of the notebook rather than the actual note, which was essentially useless for distinguishing between different notes. Given that I always had 5ish open, this was a major annoyance. I use fullscreen mode for my workflow on mac, and I use a lot of different spaces. Having all open evernote windows in separate spaces is totally impractical. You could open a separate desktop and pile up windows there (i.e. take th

  37. Been using Evernote for a long time EVERY DAY in the context of the GETTING THINGS DONE methodology. Upgraded to 10.1.7 and can no longer: 1. Sort notes by a particular tag in a given Notebook. Not all notebooks. And not 'filter' - only sort by a tag in one notebook. 2. See the note preview at the bottom of the screen. The workflow was great by having a list of notes at the top and sort by a certain tag and see a preview of a selected note at the bottom of the screen. How can we get this back??

  38. Yes, and on top of that it looks exactly like Tusk now. Is copying Tusk really the best they could come up with? They should have added a warning that this new version is not as good as the old one so people could abort before installing. I'm rolling back.

  40. Default fonts: There does not appear to be a way of changing the default fonts in a new note, is this correct, can it be reintroduced? Templates: Using a template to create a new note with previously applied styling saves time. However, if you add new text fields to the note they do not honour the template and revert to the original preset parameters. Is this correct, can this be reintroduced?

  41. Hey team, So I recently update to v10.1.7 of Evernote and was writing my notes as usually, when I notice I no longer had the option of exporting my note as PDF under the File tab on Windows 10. I was using v6 before the update and I enjoyed this feature quite heavily. Please advise on how to export my notes as a PDF in v10.1.7 now. Thanks in advance!

  44. Perhaps they take the view that EN is a note taking app so it doesn't need hundreds of different fonts. It isn't a word processor after all. If you need more complicated formating you can do it in Word and then attach the file. There is a spectrum between notepad at one end and Word at the other (or insert your favourite taxt editor and word prcessing app). Where on that spectrum should a note taking app sit? I would like to be able to sort tables for example. Best of all would be the ability to see other key document types (word, excel, even Google docs) inline as you can pdfs. So in my examp

Definitely appreciate your contributions on that. Here are my comments and take-aways, for what it's worth: Few probably really appreciate how massively non-trivial Small's undertaking truly is.

  47. Since it's still possible to go back to the 'old' version of Desktop and Android. I do think the best way to deal with the v10 update is to ignore it for a few months until it's more usable and stick with what we know and -kinda- love. I am worried that Evernote seem to have an "I wonder if we really need that" attitude to some currently missing features - it seems to have been a surprise that users would need to email notes to others, and use the Presentation mode to share data - so silence from the user-base might confirm their view and doom some previously standard options to oblivio
