  1. 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 al

  2. In the previous iOS version, when we were finished creating a new note, we could simply hit the back arrow to simultaneously save the note and return to the note list. (Otherwise, the note was automatically saved without an explicit "save" action.) Now, there's a green checkmark that saves the note—but we aren't then returned to the note list. After saving, an arrow appears, and a 2nd tap is now required to return to the note. While it's just one extra tap, that's one extra tap per note—and when creating many notes, that's now twice the work. This is questionable design. When notes a

  3. First, thank you for bringing back the capability to change the creation date of a note. But, there is room for improvement, please. I'm used to use copy / paste, e. g. from an email header, to set creation date AND time of a note - this was easy to do in V7 on Mac. Now, we have this good looking date and time selector. I like this approach, but need also the good old copy / paste - just try to set the creation date to July 1st, 2003 (archive a legacy document) - a lot of action needed using the mouse and the selector. Imagine how easy it is to just paste "29. Juli 2020 um 15:42:54 M

  4. Talking about leaving is fine. I think talking about alternatives is fine as well, to a point. I've mentioned both things in other threads--indeed, tonight I am having to work with competitor because we just lost local notebooks. That's quite a blow. The confidential stuff has to go somewhere, and apparently "remembering everything important" at Evernote doesn't account for stuff I am ethically and sometimes legally obligated to keep encrypted and/or out of the cloud (other folks' servers). Encrypted notebooks, please... I was responding specifically to calling out one of the Evernote sta

  5. I realize that Evernote needs revenue, but they need to do something to show some love to Premium users. I have been paying for Premium for several years now. I've never minded paying because I realize that a company needs money to run and because if if I use a service heavily I should pay for it. I have even been patient while Evernote was being built from the bottom up. While the "Legacy" version is a reasonable stop-gap measure, there are some problems with the approach: The legacy version is unsupported and can be turned off at some random point in the future. We do not know how

  6. 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! Update on 4th of November 2020: now at version 10.1, still the same

  8. Yes, this is what I was trying to say in my post above, about the difference between a raw percentage of users and the intensity of use: how does 50% of casual users using a feature 15 minutes per day compare with 3% of users using a feature for 5 hours a day?

  9. I agree... inability to paste a date in there really slows things down, especially when you are editing to a date that was months ago. This is one of several unusual decisions made around date selection across the new apps. I also dislike the scroll wheel date selector for reminders in iOS.

  13. I am back on the original version, relatively unscathed. Another aspect of the problem here that would be well advised to note by the EN team, is that they set an expectation level of a new, improved, faster, bla bla bla version that in fact was just the opposite. That's in no way a good thing to do to anyone, much less with the added trauma of "OMG, can I even undo this". All of the adjectives to describe this fiasco have been pretty much used by many users, so I'll restrain myself. Done properly, this could have turned out much, much different with a good experience for everyone. Hopefully,

  14. I'm with Richard. Releasing a dysfunctional "upgrade" like this is unbelievable, Asinine stupidity. You don't replace a solid version of software with "a work in progress" without half the features of the previous version. No excuse. About 20 min into Ver10, I was so mad I couldn't see straight. Trying to get work done and hitting walls every time I tried to do something. Back to legacy.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. Too many performance issues and missing features for me. Detailed some of them here in my blog. There have been others since. All of them reported through Feedback in version 10. But now I have to get back to working with the modicum of efficiency I had developed for myself using v. 6.25. Finding my way in v 10 is proving to be far too time consuming. I'll be checking in on the forums etc. to see if things seem to improve. Also will be taking fresh looks at competitive products like Nimbus, which seems to be catching the eye of enough EN power users that I feel obligated (t

  18. I love Evernote, but it's preventing me from putting in sensitive content. For example, I can't keep a personal journal notebook, because other people (i.e. girlfriend, family members, etc.) could one day be looking at those notes, especially since they know that I use Evernote often for many purposes. Evernote already has the ability to encrypt single notes. This is useful for things like storing passwords or other temporary sensitive content. But it's not practical to encrypt many notes one by one. I wish I could password-protect a whole notebook. This way, I can do a

I created a tracker for missing features and functionality as well as ideas and requests which may help as sometimes the same questions seem to get asked in multiple posts in the forum. https://www.evernote.com/shard/s249/sh/3fabdc13-3d55-9e1f-981b-9d4b43d74975/739ec1c7ac579089ac6d0ecdf2a8ddd1 Feel free to comment below on things that should be added to the list or if you know the answers/work arounds to any of them.

  21. 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 f

  23. Thanks, @RavBoy for doing all this. He pretty much lost me at, WE DON'T PLAN! When I first started programming on my Apple IIe, I brought up a code window and started typing. But, once I was actually programming for money, and the program was bigger than displaying Hello World on the screen, you planned. Meticulously and at great length. And if planning took three months, that was part of the SDLC. The plan was part of the plan. We don't plan? Well, that's pretty obvious.

You're welcome, and agree re importance of getting the CEO's views, and how those views can impact users decisions on whether they jump ship, sit tight and wait-and-see, or bite the bullet and go all-in on v10. Perhaps I should have taken another 5 minutes to remove his 'um's and uh's' from the transcript, so as to make it more readbale...in any case a quick scan get people/users the info and insights they need. That's a good way of putting it...and I reckon it would be a mammoth task to achieve a consistent/coherent EN experience across multiple platforms, trying to deliver th

  26. The word "soulless" came from me, and I apologize if anyone was offended or felt it was too aggressive language. I suppose passion for the product spilt out in the wrong manner. I just felt that it was a little too "copy paste" for my liking, but I acknowledge I could've worded my reaction more appropriately.

  29. Another great reply from the support - surprise .. they changed the stuff. I think that happen, because i'm a little bit rude, but it's end of the street. I have no patience anymore and all what they do is talking and stalling... i'm so tired... i'm a user since 2012 and i have 15k notes and i think 10-15 gb space. That's a heavy stuff to migrate and some tries are failed, because the file limit or whatever... the next step is nextcloud or something like that... you never chain on a company... that's what i learned.

  30. Of course not. Most people are very helpful and genuine. I agree. But I have seen phrases like "Cowardly developers", "Idiot CEO", "2nd grade developers" and quite a few starred out words plus other insults. Nothing wrong about talking about leaving... nothing wrong with being disappointed about a feature missing but some of the rhetoric I've seen should really be left on Reddit 😉

  32. I would like to be the grave digger that resuscitate this topic. it seems that Notebook Publishing is now gone from the new Evernote for Mac and Windows as well as IOS. I had to use the old version to be able to make a Notebook public. Now I found out that Evernote is only mentioned Publishing Notebook for Business Users only as one of their next feature. Are they planning to kill the features for us?? I tried publishing a notebook with lots of notes and it worked but the rendering for long list is full of bugs on Edge, Chrome, Safari and doesn't display well anymore.

  33. Interesting, how do you find using Nimbus on a PC, not as an app but as a web page, is that easy to get used to? I don't want to leave Evernote, but 10 is so bad, so very very bad, so unbelievably bad. I can hang on as long as I can use the old version.

  35. Shortcuts probably are based on Apple Script, and script does not work in ver 10 (yet). It is not on the list of permanently disabled functions, but I have my doubts whether it will ever return. On my Mac I use the app PopClip instead. It installs in the menu bar and has an option to show a word and character count of any selected text, not only in EN.

  36. That's odd. I can't replicate that. When I started with list view I ended up with list view. There are some issues about whether EN is remembering the preferred view so I don't know whether that is the problem.

  39. You are "tracking" reported issues......From what beta testers are saying, they have been reporting issues all along and nothing has been done. It does no good to "track" issues unless someone takes action and fixes them. This infliction of ver10 reminds me of the Coca-Cola debacle of years back when they released the "new" Coke and ended up eating it instead of customers drinking it. And there seems to be a bit of a cavalier attitude from the EN team, flavored with a bit of arrogance that users would complain. This is going to be a disaster. Just sayin'...

  40. I can see that you're not an Evernote employee, so I won't criticize you for this incredibly bad decision. But the Evernote people need to know that one of the most valuable parts of their product is consistency and reliability. As a 9-year member, I don't want to customize my interface, I've already done that. I want to turn it on, get to my info and get moving. I am profoundly disappointed in Evernote for leaving this critical feature out. They did add the ability to make my notes have pretty colors. That's what they prioritize? Over me being able to set up my screen my way? Reall

  41. Totally disagree. What they are embarking upon now takes MASSIVE courage. They are rewriting the whole platform so they offer way more value down the road. If you're this unhappy, you should seriously go back to 6.25 if you haven't already or go find a better app if you can.

  42. The way that "search" and "filter" interact is confusing until you get used to it. There is an added complication in your workflow because if you have a nested hierarchy of tags selecting a tag in the sidebar slects that tag and all the child tags. So it only finds notes tagged with the parent and all the children. The key principle is start with search and filter from within search or use the filter menu later. There are two approaches that would give you what you want. I'm going to search for the text "issues" in notes tagged $current 1. Just use search When you search yo

  45. I feel a little guilty posting about alternative solutions on an Evernote forum but suspect there are other users who, like me, have joined the Preview and Beta programmes and contributed feedback but are disappointed with the recent releases. I've also been frustrated at what appears to be a rush to release the new versions before they're ready. We've lost a lot of basic functionality and it's often felt like a losing battle trying to maintain a relatively simple workflow. Personally, after 12 years, I've cancelled my Evernote subscription and switched to DEVONthink. It took a couple of

  46. I`ve just found Nimbus Notes today and I'll give a try. Notion and OneNote do not seem substitutes to me. The prospect of so many definite changes in Evernote chills me. The Evernote I have been using for more than a decade is gone. I believe premium power users just became redundant to them, they are focusing on other customer categories. I am not willing to restructure my workflow to fit in Evernote. There are too much crucial features missing in v10. And abandoning us to an unsupported legacy version is unbearable...

  47. Honestly, I would call the iPad version broken at this point in time, having tried working with it normally over the last two days. The performance is so bad it’s unusable, which means Evernote as a platform is difficult since I use iPad so often. We’re talking 2 to 5 second delays simply to show a note when you click on it. It can take 8 to 10 seconds if it’s a note I haven’t opened recently. Another few seconds if you want to edit the note. Opening Evernote and skimming through 3 or 4 notes to find the one I’m looking for and editing it should take a few moments. It’s taking more like 20 to
