    @Stacey We do have a filter for lists in the new search experience which is in the new apps. You can simply go to the search bar and type "lists" and then click on the "lists" filter. It should filter any note with any kind of list (bulleted, numbered, etc). Also, this article shares all the filters available with the new search which I also copied below. Filters Search filters allow you to quickly search for a specific type of content. The following search filters are available: Addresses Attachments Dates Email addresses Checkboxes PDF files Presentations Images Lists Phone numbers Tables URLs Webclips

    Hi, I recently upgraded my Evernote version to this new version in iOS. If I create a new note and start typing, multiple new notes with the same content will be created. A Note Conflict message will be in the header portion of some of the new repeated notes that were created. Full specs: I created these notes on the iPad Pro, rather than on the iPhone. Input method: Apple Keyboard, via Bluetooth. May I know what seems to be the problem?

    I must be in top 100 Evernote fans. I built my digital life around this product, the most reliable piece of software I’ve used. So yeah. This iOS version is a disgrace. It tells me management doesn’t use Evernote, in the sense they don’t rely on it. They don’t know what it is. They believed a better editor and search auto completion were all what users expected. And so they proudly pushed the update button. If management was relying on Evernote, there is 0% chance they would have greenlighted this bugged beta version. 0%. Because this update makes Evernote on iOS unusable. It takes one hour to realize it. The fact management didn’t feel ashamed to release this bugged mess, sadly makes me understand they have no real idea what Evernote is, and who their core customers are 😕 Don’t get me wrong, I see good things in that version. At one point it could be better than what we had. But not in that state. Not now.

    Yes - mine is the same, now that you mention it. I think the only way we can downgrade is for Evernote to pull the current version from the App Store and replace it with the previous version. They may need to change the version number though, so that iOS14 will recognise it as a "new" update. Ironically, I just read an interview with the Evernote CEO who was spruiking the new iOS version. When asked why the iOS version was being released first, his reply was "Because it's ready". Errr - I have news for him, and it's not good news....

    @NRosser & @s2sailor This is by design. We are trying to consolidate checklist and checkbox so that they compliment each other and don't have same functionalities. We want checklists to be more interactive and useful, so we have introduced checklists as a separate type of list (accessible next to ordered and unordered lists). With checklist, you can easily drag-and-drop them and indent them like other lists. In addition, completed checklist items are crossed out and faded so that you can more easily see at a glance which items remain. Because inline checkboxes could appear inline after text, we have kept them as a separate type, but we removed the list-like continuation behavior in order to emphasize that they are standalone checkboxes, in contrast to the new checklists. Look forward to hear your thoughts on it.

    Same thing here. This could be the final reason for me to sh*t on Evernote. I am user since 2008. I have grown structures that have been organized with tags. It's now impossible to find what I am looking for. I am extremely pissed. Really. I understand that you somehow messed up your dev team so that it takes 2 years to redesign your apps to allow basic features. As I said, I can understand that. What I cannot understand is why you take away features, that do not harm anyone, just because someone thought it would be nicer this way. The next thing is: You already demonstrated that giving you feedback, even begging for features is completely useless as you most likely don't care (different highlight colors, lol. Was asked for since 7 years. So maybe in 10 years we get back the tag list feature. Great).

    I agree this is a huge step back. It seems that the editor stuff has been a priority for Evernote developers for so long now that basic workflow features are missing. The ability to filter a notebook view (or all notes) by tag is crucial for anyone who uses more than like 10 tags. As mentioned by others, search or even saved searches can't replace this.

    Having notes of 6 weeks sitting in the app, unsynced ... For everybody a general notice, for all apps: Make sure all content is synced before you hit the update button ! This is not EN specific, it is the same with other note taking apps, to do lists, grocery lists, activity logs, ... any update will most likely clear out any cache existing in an app, and this will lead to a loss of unsynced content.

    I think I have gone through the threads here, and try to report some bugs I saw especially what others haven't yet mentioned. I can't open the attachment. The attachment bar only shows "Loading..." and at the same time I can't scroll through the same note. On Dark Mode Screen flickers twice (whole white) before opening each note. It happens on my iPad Pro (10.5-inch, 2017) and does not happen on my iPhone X. When clear formatting of internal note links, they become blue colour same as web link instead (No problems on light mode). Unnecessary space between the heading of Shortcuts and the shortcuts (see the attachment). Sometimes it's not easy to swipe back to note list from the note. Looking forward to the continuously improving versions. And thanks for the update!

    Nice! I thought this might be the case and meant to ask if a redevelopment was underway. Thank you for supporting the Mac! I'm old enough to have lived through the days where no one wrote great software for the Mac. Thus, I appreciate when companies do. Will subscribe now just to show support. Thanks!

    You'll find differing opinions on Electron (Electron is Cancer, Is Electron good or bad for the app industry?, What Is Electron and Why Is It So Polarizing?). Basically these apps are websites wrapped in a Chrome based browser window. They are easier for developers to create than native apps and they look very similar on all platforms. Evernote states that this will make it easier to roll out new features and speed up development. The downside is that the user experience is worse than native apps. They are very heavy on resources and slow. They don't really fit into the operating system, they look off and behave unexpectedly. If you always have the latest and fastest hardware, they can feel acceptable, but on older devices their shortcomings will become much more apparent. In my case, I have a 2019 top of the line iMac and found that the performance of the Evernote Preview was unacceptable. High CPU usage for basic things like changing notes. The fans were noticeable most of the time when Evernote was open, even in the background without doing anything. One recent example of how bad things can go using Electron is the backup software Arq. They released a major rewrite based on it in April (version 6) and the problems people were having were so bad, Arq suspended their official Twitter account and subreddit because of the negative backlash. Fast forward to this month, they just announced their next major version (7), just 5 months after the last, going back to a native UI, because it's "got better keyboard navigation, it’s more intuitive, has a smaller disk footprint, and supports drag-and-drop to easily restore files to your desktop or a Finder window. It just feels better." To me, it's a bit ironic that Evernote released its iOS version update shortly after iOS 14 dropped because it made the missing platform specific features so much more apparent. Watch app? Gone. Widget? Gone. Siri Shortcuts? Gone. Keyboard shortcuts? What's that? Other developers are racing to make widgets and integrate their apps more into the platform, while Evernote does the opposite.

    I use Evernote extensively on my Mac, iPad Pro, and iPhone. We use shared notebooks in my office and I have a ScanSnap Evernote Edition sitting on my desk. (I even have Evernote desk accessories sitting next to the scanner.) I'm pretty well immersed in the world of Evernote. However, I've found myself turning to other tools, most recently OneNote, with greater frequency. The main issue, and it is a big one for me, is the fragmented and inferior support for note taking and PDF editing in Evernote. I use my iPad Pro with Apple Pencil extensively. There are some great Pencil-compatible apps for iOS, including Notability, PDF Expert, and OneNote. Evernote, on the other hand, is stuck with a strange and fragmented approach: PDFs can by opened using the "Annotate" tool in Evernote, which I think is built around the remnants of Skitch. It's fine for adding arrows and icons, but terrible (unusable) for handwritten notes on PDFs. It really can't be used for anything more than simple highlighting -- certainly not detailed annotation or note taking. Drawings and notes can be added to an Evernote Note directly through the handwriting tool, but this simply inserts an image into the note. There's no way to use this tool to take notes over multiple pages, or to use it for annotation as far as I can tell. I've also found it to the buggy, with full pages of notes lost if you switch away from Evernote to another app before saving the image and returning to the normal notes view. I will say that that, though the tool is very limited, with very few options, the Pencil support works well and writing is fluid. This tool seems to have the most potential for future development. Finally, there is Penultimate -- a separate app I want to love but is just too buggy, too limited, and too walled off from the rest of Evernote to be truly useful. Again, no support for importing PDFs/annotation, yet another approach to handwriting, and, though the Penultimate notes live in Evernote, nothing can be done with them in the main app. Why, at this stage, would Evernote have three separate, incompatible and incongruous approaches to annotation/note taking, none of which begin to match the functionality of some of the other apps named? Attached PDFs can certainly be opened in other apps, such as PDF Expert, but there is no way to get the annotated PDFs back into an Evernote note without deleting the original attachment and reattaching the PDF. That's cumbersome, and annotation seems like pretty basic functionality that Evernote should offer. Evernote certainly has some broader advantages over OneNote, but really needs to explore something like the "canvas" style approach used by OneNote. The ability to "print" PDFs to a OneNote page and then markup the document itself and take notes/add text/etc. all on one page is invaluable. I've pretty much switched all note taking/PDF annotation to OneNote, with Evernote still used for project management and other organizational needs, which leaves me with my own fragmentation. Maybe I'm missing something in Evernote's approach, but I'm a longtime user that's completely frustrated with Evernote's inferior support for annotation and handwritten notes.

    Agree completely. They need to give the previous version a new version number so that the App Store will let it overwrite the broken version 10 as an "update", I think. This one is nowhere near ready for release - not even as a public beta.

    The sort order of notebooks in the "Download selected notebooks" settings appears to be in reverse alphabetical order, with no option to change it. This is challenging and unintuitive (seems it should be an alphabetical sort). I use naming conventions to put my most frequently used notebooks at the top of my notebook list (and within stacks). These are the most likely notebooks I'd want downloaded to my phone. Would love to see the sort order updated. Or, if I'm missing how to change the sort in this layout (it doesn't seem tied to displayed sort order in the notebooks and notes lists), please advise where I can change the display order. Thanks!

    As stocky2605 said this workaround is impossible. All Noteshelf notes are read-only and it is not possible to change this. Next idea to fix this disaster? But please try it for yourself before posting.

    It's an extra click every single time I share (clip) something to Evernote now because I have to close this dialogue notification box. I wish it didn't exist. I'm finding myself getting progressively more annoyed, the more times I see it. I'm always looking for taps and clicks to be as minimal as possible, and the new process adds an extra tap to the capture process from my phone. And, capture and search/retrieval are the primary use cases for the phone app in my use case. Don't like extra steps getting added to those core workflows!

    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. 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.

    They aren't invalid, as the advanced search operators are still working for me. I would say they're incomplete now. 😊 I'm looking forward to learning more about these filters and accompanying advanced search operators!

    In a blog post yesterday called "Unlocking Evernote's Future," Ian Small announced the release of the updated Evernote for iOS. The post is well worth reading, and not just for iOS users. Small acknowledges the delays in development and encountering problems they didn't know they had. But he also says that they plan further innovations. Small also says the new experience will be coming soon to Windows and other clients, rolling out to each platform separately. I took a look at the featured updates for iOS, and the changes to the editor seem to include features that Windows users have been requesting, including highlight colors, headers, etc. So there's something to hope for in the fairly near future. I'm not expecting it next week, but the coming months may be very interesting for Evernote.

    @Shane D. Just wanted to note that I am having horrible issues with the Sketch feature. I can not print and have it recognize every stroke. Cursive for the most part is doable, but it still misses strokes. The different between the user not having issues and myself are the pencil versions. I am still using the original Apple Pencil and from the double tap reference it looks like if they aren't having issues it may be related to the pencil itself possibly.

    First... THANK YOU for this new version of iOS and I am very excited about the path forward for Reminders. One thing I have found frustrating is the date selector when rescheduling a reminder. I was really hoping that we would get a calendar like the Mac Beta... that scroll wheel date selector in iOS is not very useful, and it is very difficult to pick a future date without knowing what day of the week that will be. Please consider switching to a calendar for the date selector, or at least adding the day of the week!

    @rdj999 Hi, glad it improved. You could compare to the web client, which is the source for all mobile devices. The Mac runs its own data base. So if it is off, there might be a syncing issue between the Mac and the server. You could make a backup of your local EN data base folder (look up where the data base is located, stop EN, copy the data base to another folder, rename it, restart EN). Then to force a sync, hold down the opt/alt key before clicking on the sync icon. This will force the 2 data bases on the web and on your drive to get twins again. The web serves as master - thus the local backup before, in case something gets lost.

    @rdj999 Glad to hear that you worked out the difference. I just took a leap of faith and installed it as well. I looked at the note count before doing do and the new installation is different by 4 notes. Two are old inbox notes that I've had problems with and just ignore. I haven't dug into this to find the others, but it is close enough for me 🙂 . I'm not a heavy iPhone EN user. I use it mainly for lookup, but so far so good and I do like the search enhancements.

    I am also a user of this feature. In my case I have a notebook as a library where I have technical documents classified by tags that I use in my work. Memorizing or keeping a separate note on the assigned labels in a notebook to remember them all would be a "legitimate headache"! and a complete rollback my workflow. ☹

    Hi, this is a known issue and there is a ticket to address this. Essentially we have to add the ability to configure a list of items with null values to put the null values at the back of the list instead of the front. We're working on getting this functionality to you in an upcoming release.

    For clarity, my data is still present on the older versions on both Mac and iPad, so I didn't lose anything. The September notes just aren't present on Version 10 on iPhone. Nevertheless, I took a follow-up backup of just those 52 notes on Mac in case they "diskappear". But for now, I'm staying put with the new one on iPhone alone in case I notice any other behaviors that might help diagnose this. I haven't yet opened a ticket. Betting they have their hands full right now!

    I spent a few hours today learning about Roam Research. The Bi-Directional linking would be incredibly useful to me. Evernote can sometimes still feel like it is stuck in the "files and folders" past. Evernote still works very well for me. But then again, it is, far more than any other technology, responsible for how I organize my life. But, Roam's automatic, bi-directional linking feature looks killer! I watched a lot of videos that compared Roam to Evernote, and I do take exception with nearly all of them that didn't even touch on how tagging can work in Evernote. With thousands of notes going back 30+ years (back dating notes is so helpful!) I would love to be able to link that way.

    I have to agree, unfortunately. Ultimately, I recognize that Evernote doesn't owe me (or any of us) anything and that I have no right to tell them how to run their business. I also understand and actually appreciate that Ian Small doesn't want to promise anything he can't be sure they can deliver. However, it's also a fairly common software business practice to provide their customers with a roadmap: what item's they have accepted for development and a generalized status of where each one is. I'm sure this is fairly unique, because they aren't really developing new features but are instead re-developing the software—but the total lack of transparency is very much against the grain in today's software development environment. As a diehard user and complete Evernote fanboy, even I am starting to feel uneasy... I'm not coming here to threaten to leave Evernote if my demands are not met (like I said, none of us have any right to make any demand), and I'm not coming here to rage about how horrible the software is (because it's not). But, I am here to second @JMichaelTX's comments—it's also my opinion that providing some transparency would be better than keeping us in the dark.

    Came here to voice my support for backlinking on Evernote. I have been using Roam for over a month now and that capability is INCREDIBLE in the context of linking new ideas together. IMHO, Evernote with good backlinking support would be a MUCH superior product to Roam, since Evernote already has APIs, good client-side apps, etc... As it stands now, I'm leaning towards reducing my usage of Evernote for more 'free form' notes based on how seamless Roam is. Will I drop Evernote altogether? Not likely, but I really hope the company recognizes the threat from a new company and doesn't rest on its laurels.

    It works fine in chrome if you are using the "new web interface" (the one with the black background on the left hand menu). It doesn't work in the older interface. The downside of the "new" interface is that to go to the hyperlink of notes that were added using the web clipper it now takes 5 steps : Click the 3 dots in the top right Click note info Click in the url field Press control A to select the whole link then right click to select the option to go to that link on the previous version it is just displayed in the top right hand corner and you can click on it! Hey that is so much easier isn't it NOT!!!!

    @gazumped Thank you for your comments below and sorry for misleading you. I understand that my personal notes won't be shown publicly and thus unable to be Google searched. Having said that, a lot of my notes are clippings (without specifying a notebook to store or attaching a tag) from the web which I Googled for. So what I wanted to say was the following: I should be able to find Evernote stored information much more easily (much more smaller search space) then doing a Google search again over the entire web for the (clipped) original. Just out of curiosity, if it is a note from a shared notebook, then is its notes within the scope (reach) of Google search?

    Hello Dave-in-Decatur, and thank you for the quick response. So, will Evernote be addressing these issues and bugs at some point soon? Should I send these to them via their feedback mechanism? I hadn't noticed the checklist button on the ribbon and agree, it does not accomplish what I was expecting, a non-indented checkbox, or multiple, with automatic new line checkbox feature. I want the old checkbox button back. How do I make this request? Another discovery on my part, when creating a new note, there is a To Do template that can be selected. The layout of this template is something that I would likely use. However, it too suffers from lack of the automatic new line checkbox feature. So, what's the point? Do the developers ever use their part of the product? Do they listen to feedback from customers? Thanks for you time. Phil
