  1. I also HATE the renewed Evernote. I hate it when I want to open Evernote, and I click the system tray icon I then need to click an extra button to open Evernote (I liked it better to just click the system tray icon to open Evernote). I hate it when I want to open a weblink in Evernote I have to click the link and then have to click the link again in a pop-up, and lots of times it still doesn't open the webpage in my webbrowser. It was possible to show my favorites in a top bar; now EN doesn't have that option anymore. It was possible to show the note-list on top, and the note on the bottom; now EN doesn't have that option anymore. Also, all of a sudden, EverNote has decided to spell check, and there is no option to turn this off. It is only in English, and most of my notes are NOT in English. Quite annoying. I hate that all of the fonts have gone. I have been a faithful EN-user since 2010, sent a lot of new users and a lot of money your way, but I think I'll switch to another app.

  2. Latest "forced" update (popup seemed to present no option) is quite a slap in the face. Not a whisper about the downgrades (lost features, functions & control). Have never felt so betrayed by a trusted tool before. Thank God a reinstall of legacy version will buy some time to find an alternative - realistically, looking at the new interface suggests little interest in recovering prior functionality. I don't have time to "learn to love it" - abandoned on discovering the most up-front disasters, including: - lost ability to drag-n-drop attachments out of EN (e.g. to Outlook) - no option to default-display PDFs as attachments - no customizable menu bar, "All Notes" buried in side panel - shortcuts & searches redirect focus to target note, obscuring top-panel list display - automatic firstline=title behavior gone - no access to create/update dates/times - templates retain original create date, no facility to re-date daily log template - no auto-upload folders I had to contrive half a dozen workarounds within minutes of install - inefficient, irritating beyond belief. /Schooner

  3. Actually, this is my version: 10.8.5-win-ddl-public (2367) Editor: v118.1.15148 Service: v1.28.5 That is the most recent one. Let's check my complaints again: I hate it when I want to open Evernote, and I click the system tray icon I then need to click an extra button to open Evernote (I liked it better to just click the system tray icon to open Evernote). -> Still true. I hate it when I want to open a weblink in Evernote I have to click the link and then have to click the link again in a pop-up, and lots of times it still doesn't open the webpage in my webbrowser. -> I know that this feature has been restored in the latest version, but I notice that it just doesn't work like it should all the time. It was possible to show my favorites in a top bar; now EN doesn't have that option anymore. -> Still true. It was possible to show the note-list on top, and the note on the bottom; now EN doesn't have that option anymore. -> Still true. Also, all of a sudden, EverNote has decided to spell check, and there is no option to turn this off. It is only in English, and most of my notes are NOT in English. Quite annoying. -> I know that this feature has been restored in the latest version, so now it is possible to turn this off. But it is still not possible to check the spelling in each note in a different language, or to switch languages halfway through the note. See also: I hate that all of the fonts have gone. -> Still true.

  5. Try the Legacy version. I feel the same way you do - the new version of Evernote is a disaster on the desktop, the phone and the Web. I don't believe they even tested it first. Couldn't have. These issues are too big.

  6. Yes, Evernote 10.5 is broken for many many users. This is reflected in this forum and in play store also. Even support being asked does not deny this. You're only choice now is to manually roll back to EN 8.13.3 via an APK-installation. You can get the old version for example at https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/evernote-corporation/

  7. Wow, I'm super upset to find that this feature is basically gone. This was one of the most useful features of Evernote. Now the screen grab tool takes you to Evernote as soon as you click it, and then when you toggle back to whatever you actually want to capture, it only lets you capture one frame, and immediately saves to Evernote, not the scratch pad?!? Totally useless broken workflow. For actual note-taking, Evernote seems to get less useful with every update. Sigh.

  8. Feature request to add blockquote/quote formatting to the editor so that blocks of text that are typically quotations have distinct formatting such as indent, line prefix. This is useful since may websites/blogs use block quote styles when referencing sources, it saves from having to manually style quote sections with italics etc, and helps any future export/formatting improvements (e.g. blockquotes style can be customized for all notes, export to HTML or markdown is more logical). Functionality includes Automatically enter blockquote formatting if the start of the line begins with "> " Allow not going into blockquote format by pressing undo immediately after entering "> " Continue blockquote format on the next line if already in blockquote Exit blockquote format after entering two new lines Allow 'quote' format in drop down menu Automatically detect quote regions when simplifying article from web clipper Support some other formatting elements within a block quote e.g. headers, bold, images, tables, links

  9. Was the Evernote Audio Recording feature deleted from the new Mac evernote app? I've looked all over help, google search and asked my contacts. I can't find an answer. It's a key part of our research workflow. Thanks for any feedback

  10. 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.

  11. Will the audio recording functionality be brought into the new Evernote for Mac Ver 10+ ? That's the crucial element that I've used professionally for years. I record all my conversations and take notes. I thought, hey the new version looks great, then went hunting for the ability to record audio and it WASN'T THERE?!?! Lost my mind, but then realized I could downgrade back to ver 7. Is the audio functionality gone for good? It's more than important, it's crucial, for my daily workflow that has been the same for years. Anybody else missing that feature or know if it is coming to the newest version of Evernote?

  12. Evernote has quit working on my Windows 10 Home Microsoft Surface. I tried restarting Evernote, restarting Windows, and even downloaded and installed Evernote again. I still get the same error.

  13. I can vouch that they certainly don't put much effort into regression testing! In fact about the only recent, technically impressive achievement is migrating the back-end services to the cloud. Other than some brief outages, the transition was seamless for myself and everyone I've been in touch with. That was happening over a year ago. (If it turns out that there were major problems with that migration after all, I'm not entirely sure I'd want to know! Perhaps I'm better off believing there is at least one thing Evernote can still do right? But then again, nah, I'd rather know...)

  14. wow ... i just realized my earliest Evernote goes back to March 13, 2011 ... I started paying a year after that. Seriously ... this warrants a refund. $7.99 / month x however many months this has been going on.

  16. Actually @gazumped, the Google Play store is far more progressive in its testing options and capabilities than the iOS app store. There are a plethora of options of which Evernote could have availed themselves, such as: Rename the old app to Evernote legacy (just like on desktop) and launch the new Evernote for mobile app as a new store listing. The obvious drawback to this approach is that the new listing would start with zero reviews and no rating. A better approach they could have taken involves keeping the existing app listing, and make an open test version of the new app available for anyone who chooses to opt-in (either via a web link or directly from the app store page). That would allow users to move back and forth at will between the new version and the old version. A side benefit is users of the test version would not be able to make a public review nor have their review affect the app store rating, so the app rating would not suffer during the initial shakedown period. In addition or instead of open test version, an app in the Play store can have a large number of additional testing versions for more enthusiastic and adventurous customers. This could help catch some of the more egregious issues before an update reaches the open testing channel, and definitely before it becomes the default version for all. There are a number of additional permutations and options available, but you get the gist.

  17. The elephant icon in the system tray is the give away. If it is there, then EN is still running in the background. So you are right you need to do file -> quit or right click the elephant icon and choose quit. This has always been how EN has worked. I suppose the difference now is the need to completely quit EN to free up RAM.

  18. Seems like if I choose File/Quit Evernote it kills all the processes. If you exit with the X in the upper right hand corner, it doesn't.

  19. Ok, this seems to have fixed it. Delete AppData folder. Found these instructions from another thread. Worked for me. Now I can install 10.x. Next I'll try 6.25 as soon as 10.x is done updating and everything.

  20. Thanks for taking the time to reply on great detail. my confidence has decreased now that I started losing notes for the first time in 10 years of using Evernote. I no longer use the Windows version but I do use the web, iOS and macOS versions. I am less concerned about the sync as I am about the preservation of my notes at this point. I have over 11,000 notes so I am concerned that I would not easily notice lost notes at this point.

  23. 徒にスレッドを伸ばすのもよくないのですが、Evernote側の対応の稚拙さ、遅さをまとめます ・すでに発覚、最初の報告からまる1年経過も全く改善なし ・アプリの既知の問題点リストにも記載なし ・日本語入力の種類問わず発生しているのに「回避方法は純正の日本語入力を使用」などというミスリード。きちんと確認していないのでは? IMEが不要な他国では問題にならないので対応が放置されていたのではありませんか? ユーザーに対する返金など考えて良いレベルの不具合と思いますがいかがでしょう。 問題点リストに乗っていないということも不誠実ですね。 私も最近Big Surにアップデートした途端にEvernoteが使い物にならなくなりました。 問題点が公式に告知されていればアップデートはしていなかったと思うので残念です。

  24. The system for Android sharing in 10.5 is nearly totally broken. It often just opens Evernote without sharing anything. When it does open the sharing/clipping dialog it often just duplicates the last shared item. When it does share the correct item, the tags from the last item are applied. There is no good way to remove incorrect tags without actually entering the note editor. This last is especially important. If you are going to maintain the workflow of assigning tags and notebooks without automatically opening the note editor then there needs to be an easy way to edit tags without opening the note editor (which takes much longer now).

  25. Hope so. My gut feel is that EN is moving inexorably towards a lighter/prettier concept where aesthetics drown functionality. Maybe there's more $ in an airy approach than there is in catering to the data-dense professional user who sees EN as the core dashboard, library, and data portal of his existence. The whole experience reminded me (a Mac-tolerant Windows diehard) of trying to help my kids when their schools inflicted Chromebooks upon them - now I know what one feels like the morning after having a stroke! /Schooner

  26. If you hate it, move on. Having bad feelings when opening an app is not worth the loss in life quality or lifetime. For the time being: You can turn off spell checking in the EN v10 settings. Or switch to legacy, which makes it easier as well to export your data.

  28. I'm thinking of moving to OneNote too. The new Evernote is just AWFUL. So many features have been disabled, my Evernote scanner no longer works with it, one has to constantly be connected to the internet to use many of the notes. It's a mess! I've tried working with Evernote support and they've been of very little use. I used to LOVE Evernote and recommended it to everyone I knew and even paid for all my kids to use Premium. I would not recommend it any more. It's that bad!

  31. thank you very much for your kind and long explanation. I agree a little on everything you say, but there are some points that I absolutely disagree with. The new version has some absurd inconsistencies, first of all, the effort made to integrate the html that I can also understand, but then I realize that the functions that FIRST made EN an immediate app, have now disappeared, I will mention some of them . 1. The INFO bar under the notes with the info of the written words is gone! 2. impossible to write the font values in the drop-down menu, you have to depend on those entered with a deviation of 2 (eg, from 14 to 16)! 3. In previous versions there was font 15, many of my notes used this size, now or 14 or 16 ... it doesn't make any logical sense! 4. The use of tags that made EN a very convenient app has gotten worse! 5. The slowness in opening the notes! 6. After more than 4 years of requests from many users, the caps lock via button is STILL not implemented! 7. It is still not possible to write in the middle-side of a photo! And much more that has not been done ... But all their efforts have gone into HTML integration ... and the result is an app that many users don't like. I'm sorry, I can understand certain problems, but what emerges is a company that does not aim to create a product that is truly effective in its use, does not solve users' problems and does not ask them for their opinions and feedback, otherwise many of these characteristics would have already been additions!

  33. @Caz21 Thanks for this report. I can confirm the account tied this forum email address was created in 2019. Since you've been with us for 2012 the notes you're looking for must be in a separate account. I know you've mentioned trying a few, but we must be missing something. I'll DM you for more info. Thanks again for this report.

  34. -1 .... just want to add my voice that I really hope that Evernote doesn't change this. I really like the strikethrough when completing check list items and the ability to add a check box in-line separate from a checklist item that impacts the entire line.

  35. Ok, what's the update please Evernote? This is a major pain in my backside - as a paid subscriber, to have functionality that is so core to what I do...removed without warning, is a serious neglect of your SLA. Can you please give me a timeframe on when audio recording is going to be restored ASAP otherwise I'm going to need to move everything to another tool ASAP.

  36. Yep I agree, the whole point of a widget is for regular/daily use! To release a major app update without a working widget is really poor form.

  37. I agree with Eamont. Saying it differently. When hovering over the new note icon I would like a choice of custom note options from " My Templates" gallery rather than the canned templates. Replace these. You can keep the blank note.

  38. As others have said, I have been a premium user since 2012. As an instructor, consultant in the real estate industry, I frequently taught classes on Evernote to Realtors and promoted it to hundreds and hundreds of agents, many of whom signed up for it. I retired two years ago, but still use it like every day for my own projects. The fact that this latest version will not clip articles from the web or work with Acrobat and other products is disgraceful. Every time I open Evernote, I see more and more clipped pages that are supposedly being imported, but never are. What is more of a shame is Evernote’s silence on this matter. I have had no response from them to probably half a dozen emails on the topic that I have sent ever since this problem began. Now, I have even had a few phone calls from Realtors who were ex-clients. They are asking me if I know what the problem is. Embarrassingly, I do not. I am very particular about products and services that I endorse, and this is just not like Evernote to act in this manner. I am very disappointed.

  39. I understand they are working hard in fixing the app, but stilling not usable for some people is reality which can't be ignored. And I don't think users are ranting as they are explaining how that happens in detail. Empathy with and understanding different kinds of customers is a very important and basic process in designing/rewriting an app.

  40. No I'm not discussing half full / empty... My personal opinion is simple. The product was fine (maybe not the newest features etc..), new release came and the product was totally different. Broken if you ask me... So because I'm still a customer, until end of subscription, I will not accept this broken release.. You shouldn't either. When Evernote classifies this a an New update release, bring back the old features, than this is a disrespect for it customers... And I know that you think the same about this, what if 1Password will change like Evernote did..? New Release... Electron Web version, only option : USERNAME + PASSWORD logging, you will drop 1Password in a heartbeat. Even when they promise update release in the upcoming months (years)... No, it is damage control release management.... 💀

  41. Personally I am running legacy for work, and v10 to test and observe progress. MacBook Pro with BigSur 11.2. Both clients can be installed and run side by side. Current version of v10 is 10.7.6 - the average was appr. 1 release every 4 weeks. Some of the larger issues are solved, now we will see what happens with feature parity.

  42. The new setting to disable check spelling is good, but not enougth. I have some notes of my Spanish classes that are, obviously, in spanish. So I want to disable check spelling just to these notes, or just to specifics note books. That's kind of an obvious setting :/ Or even better, in old version of Evernote (loved the new one, by the way) the spanish in these notes were auto recognized

  43. I wish Evernote would follow a very simple common sense rule. No new features until old ones are working as people expect. And bugs and performance issues are no longer an issue. Also when new version of Evernote is released, there need to be trust in the stability, not playing Russian roulette with updates. Will I lose my data? Will it crush two or three times per hour etc. I'm been using Evernote for years and for years it has gotten from bad to worse, with not much ability to learn from previous mistakes being shown by Evernote. Right now still version 10 is not ready for general release its basically early beta version of the program. What are you doing releasing new features when the old ones that you removed are still not there and there are stability and performance issues. What is the logic behind that?

  44. I had same problem, saying 8 clips importing but never actually doing it. These were clips from 2 days ago. I cannot simply reinstall app because I can't lose them - I don't remember the exact content links and work-related (I rely on clipping so I don't need to remember!). Just leaving the app open on my iphone didn't work (don't have ipad), tried doing this many times over a couple of days, but the iphone app would just close (& sometimes seem to freeze/crash). Anyhow, this seemed to work for me: I closed down every single app by double-clicking Home button, then shutdown my iphone, restarted it & just opened EN app, left it open, and when came back from shops it had successfully imported everything.

  45. I for one don't like this new "feature". There should be an option to have it strikethrough or not. I actually like to be able to easily read the text at all times and the strikethrough is not as easy on the eyes. I see above that some like it, but it's a thumbs down for me.

  49. I downloaded the new WEB ui for Chromium Browser. I use it to manage my information and data through tagging. The old UI gave an easy overview and quick access to different. I have an extensive GTD working zone where I jump from project to project and keep track of my things to do. With the new WEB UI this becomes hugely impossible. Can I restore the old version please. I wrestled with it this whole morning and I am kind of fed up with it. This new UI, based on Tablets and Android.... , is very very bad . The key is "manage" your notes. Not "Enterring data". Managing notes is managing knowledge. I really really want the old thing back. M.
