  1. Until the new recent release you could add a shortcut to a note to your Android home screen. You took away that feature. I used it a lot. Pleaser bring it back.

  2. I'm afraid that Evernote have lost the plot. This used to be a great product but the new "architecture" has made the product very slow. I'm on a new mac mini - everything else works fine - but not Evernote. There are delays when typing a note and it has got so bad now that I think it's the end of the road. If I can't type a note on Evernote consistently then I can't use the product. Goodbye Evernote.

  3. SLOW SLOW SLOW The biggest problem the new EN faces is speed. I am afraid that they have chosen to sacrifice speed for the benefits of a less complicated development environment. Maybe this is a good decision for Evernote, but for my use case it is a disaster. I am worried that the new speed problem of the new EN is not solvable, and that my type of user will need to transition to a program capable of handling heavier loads and larger databases in a responsive manner. After checking in on the competition, I believe Evernote legacy is still the best option for frequent web clippers an

  4. I've gotta jump in here. Nimbus does indeed have that roadmap, but... Looking at that roadmap is like paying 5 bucks to see a "bearded lady" in one of those old circus tents. You're all excited. You go in. You see her... You get closer, and then... You realize the beard is glued on. 😞 Anticipation. Excitement. Then trick! That's my experience looking at that roadmap. I get excited about features I see planned, and then whatever I'm excited about either gets pushed to the left, completely removed, or "get's completed" but actually isn't. That, and the majority of what

  5. I have lots of lists using the old checkbox feature and I especially like that the text does not change to strike-through after checking the checkbox. After upgrading to v10.4.4, Evernote for Windows keeps automatically switching my check box lists to checklists and changes all text to strike-through for checked items. This happens anytime I press enter anywhere in any of the items on any line. It is impossible to add a new line anywhere - in the middle, at the end, ANYWHERE, without the list getting switched to a checklist. PLEASE allow us to disable this new "feature". I can understand

  6. Hi there, I have just upgraded the above and the existing shortcuts on my home screen (shortcuts to specific notes) no longer work. I have deleted them but I can no longer find the option to recreate them? Where has the ability to add a note shortcut to an Android home screen gone? Please bring it back if it has been removed as part of the upgrade. thanks in advance for your help

  9. With the update to Evernote 10 I'm no longer able to use the keyboard shortcut command-tilde(~) to switch from one open window to another. I'm not sure why this is happening but it's making it harder for me to work on multiple notes at one time. PLEASE FIX THIS! v 10.0.10 build 458340 public Editor: v107.3.13847 Service: v1.20.21

  10. Current situation is that the ticket has moved from Customer Support -> Technical Support -> Development Team (for further review). The issue and symptoms have been confirmed and reproduced. No date for resolution. Workaround is to use Legacy.

  11. Legacy is using the same data base on the server. When you log in with the same account your notes will be downloaded from the EN server, and a local data base will build from it. The only proven cases of notes not showing are when people use a wrong login information (one typo is enough), and instead of logging into their account by accident create a new one. Which is empty, of course. The only usage that can lead to conflicting notes is when you use legacy and v10 at the same time, and edit the same note by accident on both clients. I am using both clients side by side and had

  12. Just try to install autocorrect in another language, and type some simple English sentences. You will find yourself „ridicuoused“ within typing your first 100 words.

  13. ... just be aware that you loose the note-notebook information when using legacy as well. So you end up with a heap of notes without knowing the notebook where they were located, or you do it notebook by notebook. Name each export file with the notebook name to be able to reproduce where the content belongs. Some use scripting, but for a one-timer this is probably an overkill. Ah, and when using legacy the local data base will be used. So make first sure it is intact - there are extended help options available to run database checks and correct for issues. On the Mac hold down the al

  14. Whether it's Notion or any other app, the best thing to do is try and see. If it works to your satisfaction, great. If not, no problem, all your data is still in Evernote. And even if you do move to another note app, you can still leave your existing notes in Evernote (just don't edit them there if you will be editing them in the new app). That way if you find certain notes didn't import well, you can always go back to see the originals in Evernote. Moving between note apps isn't like moving from one house to another, so don't stress. It doesn't have to be in one shot, you can always

  16. So curious about how Evernote found such engineers to kill itself! Worst ideas and practice in designing the version 10.

  17. Completely agree. I like the new checklists (mainly because of the ease of reordering by drag and drop) but if I want a check box at the beginning of a line I should be allowed to have one! It would also be nice to choose whether to strikeout the text. If you are not aware from other posts the workaround is to put a space before the checkbox. So <space>[] inserts a checkbox at the beginning of a line, that doesn't change to a checklist when you hit enter. You will need to add it at the beginning of every line though.

  20. I mean, seriously. It DOES NOT matter what we use for personal use within our notes! Custom font integration should be an option. EN can still achieve making notes look whatever way they want by you selecting one of the preinstalled fonts. If we want to use something else and risk it not looking like the same across all platforms - that's our problem. Like I have mentioned in other posts as well as this one. I am CONSTANTLY having to create layouts, notes, articles, etc with different fonts. This is a huge let down for someone in the design field. Pink Elephant need not reply. I don't need to

  23. Much like Dave I have work files in Evernote that I need to access several times a day. Each jobsite is in Evernote and I need to update them several times a day. Not being able to access notes and tags on my homescreen adds several additional steps, this adds up over the day. I contacted Evernote and they said they may consider putting this feature back in a future update. I asked about getting the previous version of Evernote and they said they don't supply previous versions. It seems like an FU to a 10 year subscriber, sure update they app, add new features, etc, but don't take

  24. Amazing. Months after the release, v10 is the disaster that keeps on giving. We have seen multiple users complaining about sluggishness in various aspects, but nothing is as maddening as when an app cannot keep up with your typing. Doesn't matter how good a note app is in other aspects, if I have to wait for it to catch up with my typing, that's a fatal flaw.

  25. Evernote Team, I just installed the IOS on my Android phone. Now one of the most important feature no longer works. I need to be able to save note icons on my home screen of my phone. Now all the icons no longer work. Can someone please help with this? I actually use this function every time I used Evernote on my phone. Now it will take me longer to find my key notes. Before I would just click my icon I saved on my home screen. Now I have to go into Evernote and click on the three lines to the left of the screen and scroll down the long list of shortcuts to get to my mo

  26. I am pretty sure that among the first people who know about user happiness there is everybody in support. In the peak they had a reaction time of 10 days, which means working down a queue of 10 days full of unhappy issues. About leaving EN: It is not about leaving this or using that - everything is about how to get things done. Even when the new EN client may not be the same we all got used to, it may be that it is still the best alternative. Or maybe it is not. This depends on your use cases, so don’t be too umpresse with what others tell about THEIR use cases. Just think about the

  27. We do several powershell commands in the installer to detect and uninstall legacy Evernote clients. For example: "powershell.exe /c Get-AppxPackage Evernote.Evernote | Remove-AppxPackage" For external file opens we use https://www.electronjs.org/docs/api/shell#shellopenpathpath There is some older code that is being replaced that still uses it. You should see it the next version or two.

  28. Why am I having to suggest this when we already had it before you took it away? I did most of my access to Evernote using shortcuts on the home screen to important notebooks. I'm very annoyed and feeling unappreciated as a long-term user.

  32. Outline mode is a game changer. Once you use it, there is no going back to a note app that doesn't have this feature (or similar feature that lets you quickly and easily navigate a note). You better not try it, because then you'd be compelled to abandon your post as Evernote Forum's unpaid defender. I hope they're at least sending you some of those Evernote socks that never sold. 😉

  33. Hi. Careful what you wish for. I'm also on 5.33 (50k+ notes) but was given a brief look at v10 through some Support magic. Some duplications, freezes and general chaos later I was very happy to get back to 5.33... When they can transfer you safely, they'll do so.

  35. Here are some comparisons of Evernote Presentation and Dropbox Paper Presentation Modes. Evernote is on the Right, using the middle font size, and DropBox Paper is on the Left. Some Key Differences: On Dropbox, you cannot change the font size - all you get is the header and then a standard font size - which you can make Bold - but that's about it. On Evernote, you have the 3 different presentation font sizes that you can select right in the presentation mode - which is useful as it doesn't require making edits to the original note.

  38. Hi, I use Evernote since a lot of years now and it is my most used app daily for both all my personal and professional stuff. I have about 25.000 notes and thousand of tags. Before v10, i was quite happy with it, at least on Windows, but i had sometimes, and more and more often, slowdowns and lags. On Android it was more complicated : the application was often slow and i had often synchronisation conflict with my desktop app. So i wasn't using it when i could avoid. For instance, when i had something to add to Evernote when i was on mobile, i used my Todo app (Microsoft) to quic

  39. I second ALL of these issues. Some of these were reported during the beta test phase, and 4-5 months later they are STILL not fixed. It's bordering on the absurd.

  40. I would like to suggest 3 new features for future updates: 1) Standard font option for notes or notebooks. If I don't want to use the Sans Serif font for a particular job, just switch to the font that best suits my needs. 2) Create the "Paint format" tool, similar to what already exists in editors such as Office and Google Docs. The formatting brush allows you to copy the formatting already used in a section of the document, thus avoiding the work of having to make a series of changes again in a new section of the note. 3) Creation of shortcut/buttons to change all fonts to uppe

I tried downloading direct form Evernote, rather than from the Apple store - 1.8.4-mac-ddl-public (2394) Evernote forgot all my setting, login etc - but command ` does work So - what are they doing that breaks Applestore rules... I may be imagining it - but this version does seem less slow than the Apple Store one. 2 hours later - McAfee detected malware in ~/Library/Application Support/Evernote/resource-cache W97M/Downloader

It is available now via the Mac App Store and 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.

  45. Don’t search a replacement. Define your use cases - just lean back and write down for what purposes you did use EN in the past. Think if you need anything in addition. Convert it into a table, and give it a rank from most important to low usage. Then start the search. It is never good just to want out of something. Then you are out, and still don’t know where to go. Direction and action comes from knowing where to go.

  46. Totally agree. It's frustrating not only because when we press enter for a new line it transforms into a checklist, but also because it's indented. I manage checklist/boxes within tables and this messes up with the whole design and width of columns. Typing a space before the box it's a workaround but it'd be nice that they fix this so it doesn't switch automatically.

  47. Check out https://www.noteapps.info/ where you can filter on the features you'd like and find an appropriate app among the ones indexed. For me Evernote legacy is currently the best alternative, with Nimbus Note a close second. I've cancelled my EN premium and will decide what to do when my subscription runs out in the summer.

  48. This is a great idea and exactly what I am missing. A few months ago I signed up for the EN beta. Trying it I found it to be a complete disaster to use given my workflow (no global hotkeys, no settings, no import folder, no default font, etc., etc., etc.) and gave my feedback while uninstalling the beta. Then came the release of the new clients and it gets even worse: The beta missing features are still missing and it is communicated as an upgrade! Same for Android (e.g. removal of widgets). Luckily I can use legacy. Given that EN is saying that this is the future I cancelled my

  49. Congratulations Evernote, you are ground breaking, the very first in software history to pass off a sub beta as the finished article (after extensive beta testing, Ha ha ha) to millions of users and then stick with it as if nothing just happened, blaming the “power users” for messing it up for you by recognising the stroke you just pulled. Those horrible 2%er power users. When I say power users what I really mean is people that actually care about the software and know how to use it properly.
