  1. 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

  2. Dear people at Evernote, I guess you have read the comments on the Google Play App. An immense amount of the community of Android Evernote users is deeply frustrated with the recent Android upgrade. I won't start listing all the negative points which have been ruined concerning the usability we relied upon on the previous version (you can have a look at the list yourself). Can you please help us all and just go back to the previous version? We would be thankful if you just admit the mistake and do this, it would be a noble thing to do for all of these loyal customers. Or at le

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. It seems others are not thrilled to see all their check box lists turned into checklists (with strike through). And Thankfully there is a workaround to prevent this from happening, but adding a space before each line is cumbersome if you have lots of lists and lots of items. So, I go back to my original request.... Can Evernote stop automatically converting existing check box lists to checklists? I'm not asking for checklists to go away - just don't keep switching everything to checklists! Or, allow the user some way to disable/turn off this auto-convert to checklist feature? Perhaps som

  6. 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.

  7. This is what I find so interesting as well ! Ok sure, I assume the idiot managers likely don't use Evernote much but surely someone in the company must!?! If they did though I just don't see how on earth they would have released it. Baffling to me.

  8. 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. How could this new version have been released without being ready? v8.x was so much more responsive, had more features, and simply worked. v10.x is a slow mess. I'll give Evernote another two weeks. Then it is Joplin or OneNote for me.

  10. Its been a solid 8 year run on Evernote premium, the new app is so slow and so terrible they forced my hand. I finally spent half my weekend exporting all my notes to Apple Notes and now couldn't be happier. It does exactly what I want: Takes notes, works across all my devices, loads instantly, doesn't interrupt my workflow with stupid announcements about a "new version coming soon". No bugs, No missing notes requiring me to restart the app. Just works. It even has an encrypted note feature! Thank you Apple. Now I've discovered Evernote make it impossible to delete my account for good. Th

  11. Hey @Shane D., @Hector C., and others who interact with us beta testers, We appreciate the efforts that Evernote has taken and continues to take to improve the product. We recognize that things are moving along better than they have in the past. But, frankly, when it comes to the Android app anyways, I don't need all these improvements that you're working on. What I need is these critical bugs fixed. I mean, these are really rather obnoxious defects that I'm sure are bothering all users of the app. The biggest ones that are really rather frustrating for me personally are:

  14. As a paid subscriber since 2012 and daily plan and data repository user of Evernote, I’m extremely frustrated Ian chose to go after “fluff” instead of maintaining a trustworthy tool. “Power user” I’m not, but have thousands of notes in their currently incapable hands. If I execute a simple saved search based on tags, alter a note to remove a tag that is required in the search, and return to the saved search results...the note is still there in the search results. Okay, maybe I have to re-execute the search...no, several execution of the search retains the note even though it no longe

  15. Hi there! Evernote has become quite sluggish since the release of V10.x.. The app itself usually takes five seconds to open on phones with flag ship hardware. Very annoying if one needs to check something quickly or just note down a few words. Search is slow. Fairly often one simply gets a blank page when clicking on any note. The only way of solving this problem seems to be to restart the app. The in-app website browser is ridiculously slow. I don't know who made the decision to release a beta version of Evernote to the public and not have it fixed for months,

  16. Reading the release notes for Windows it is tragic to see how functionality that is standard in Legacy is now communicated as an improvement when it is added back to V10: Global keyboard shortcut editing is now available via the keyboard shortcuts reference menu. Don’t like the way a global keyboard shortcut is set up? Change it! You can now edit global keyboard shortcuts to find the perfect combination of characters. Access the keyboard shortcuts menu by using Ctrl/Cmd + /

  17. Hi gazumped ... Yes. I turned it off and on. Didn't help. So I uninstalled it, and reinstalled. No luck! What made me even more upset was that, at least before I uninstalled, the Home Screen Note Titles were still on the screen, but I couldn't open them. After uninstalling and reinstalling, I had, of course, lost those. Ugh!!! They, at least, acted as placeholders. And yes, all my Notes are still on my Desktop App, as well as online. It's just on my Cell ... the one I use 75% of the time. Fortunately, it turns out Evernote has not been updated on my old Samsung Note 8, and so I'

  18. As far as I can tell, no one is saying 'get rid of the checklists feature', we're just asking EN to stop converting checkboxes to checklists. Um, no, that's just nonsense. Check this out: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005597-Create-a-checklist Under checkboxes, directly from their help website: Are you saying that "just about anywhere within a note" = everywhere but not one below the other?! What kind of logic is that? And why this distinction?? There are legitimate cases where you want a list and want checks that do not strikethrough the text, you still w

  19. I just find it stupid that Evernote decided to create 2 separate formatting options that behave differently but enforces the use of one of them. If the plan all along was to have just checklist, why the hell did they create the checkbox feature?! If they have created it and released it into the wild, leave it be, don't force the counterpart, both of them are good but serve 2 different type of scenarios, as so many users try to convey and apparently are being ignored.

  20. I agree 100%. If you're going to force all checkboxes to turn into checklists, why even bother retaining the old feature? Seems like Evernote product management is getting a little sloppy. This "feature" is very frustrating. I use Evernote for genealogical research and I use the checkbox for tracking lists sources that I've found/not found. In this use case, the checkbox represents that I've found the source. Crossing out the text is the opposite of what I want, in this case, and renders the list unreadable. Ugh. I did see the workaround, but it doesn't work very well when adding to

  22. 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.

  27. Your new idea of checklists takes a flexible tool and makes it single use. You force us to use checklists for one purpose. If it’s not checked, it’s not done. If it is, it’s over with and done. I don’t need to see it any longer. I won’t use it again. But lists don’t have such a single, unary purpose. Some lists the default is checked. Some, the default is not check. Most of my lists are intended to be reusable sets of things. A list for a store of things I need over time over and over, I’m checking thing and then unchecking them. Some lists again the default is checked that I need it. In

  28. At this point, I would really like to see an official response from Evernote. This thread is two months old and still has recent activity, so others are clearly bothered by this behavior. IF YOU WORK FOR EVERNOTE AND ARE READING THIS, PLEASE RESPOND! Even if the response is that Evernote will not make any changes, I would still want to know that. The change I am asking Evernote to consider is allowing the user the ability/option to shut off or stop the automatic conversion of check box lists to the new checklists. Basically the ability to tell Evernote to leave a list of check boxes

  29. Electron base, really? That explains why it is so relentlessly slow even on my macbook pro with 16gb and 200Mbps optical line! It seems that these days I am spending more time on the internet searching for answers trying to somehow justify my frustration on how Evernote has gone from one of the few products that I always thought was worth paying for, to a product design that sacrifices productivity and usability over cross-platform maintainability. So far this new version has so many negative aspects that greatly outweigh the positive that this is the first time since 2012, premiu

  30. Thanks. It is good to see that some of the defects in the “updated” software are being remedied. However, many remain. For example: If a pdf has a non-standard page length it will not open for editing. If you click on more than one tool annotation locks up completely. You still cannot zoom a pdf. The sketch feature now works, sort of. The inking quality is worse than Penultimate prior to the Apple Pencil. The inking tools are crude and not thought out. The plus button allows you to create a table which works only if you need a table exactly three co

  32. 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.

  34. I also raised a ticket b/o somewhat different bugs. There's no progress in support. IMHO de-installing the 10.5 v, re-installing the 8.3 v (see in this thread above) as well as turning off auto-update for software is the only way to work with Evernote in the near future.

  35. I raised a ticket telling all bugs that prevent me from getting to working with EN10.5.1 on all of my Android 10 devices: - extreme slow performance (app starts 15-20 seconds, freezes, key presses with no reaction) - offline notebooks not downloaded, accessing EN10.5.1 offline results into crash - images in notes after short usage of the app not displayed no matter how often installed and deinstalled or logged on/off As a premium customer I think a functioning app is something one could expect, some functionality (e.g. offline use) we explicitly pay for. I asked for a roll

  37. I agree with most of what you say except "who uses 5 devices with different operating systems?" Well, me for a start. Currently I use 2 x MacOS, 2 x Windows, 2 x iPhone, 1 x iPad. A mix of work and home devices A couple of years ago I had no Macs but Android instead of the iPhone. Then there's occasional use of web to look something up from another device (someone else's PC or a work VDI that's locked down etc). That's the 5, albeit I never had all 5 in use at the same time. Unfortunately my phone was on auto-updates so that device is now committed to v10+. As a software architect I

  38. In this case maybe just a mistake... but....this is also somehow symptomatic for how Evernote is handling the Android eco system. I tried 10.5 on my several Android 10 devices. On all devices I had to deinstall it eventually because of not being able to actually use Evernote in a resonable way (extremely slow and regular gui freezes). In my perception Evernote treats Android like a nasty eco system they unfortunately have to deal with ... but are not enthusiastic about at all. They seem to be focussed on iOS as they are focussed on US customers and english speaking users in general. That is a

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.

People are logged off the app everytime they close it, Evernote doesn't work offline, images don't display, all we are waiting for now is for Evernote to delete years of our work.

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
