  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. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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

  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

  10. So I actually contacted support about this, and credit to the guy who answered me, he said he wanted this feature too! But he said he wasn’t aware of any plans to implement it. I asked for the feedback to be submitted up the chain, but clearly they don’t listen, so I’m sadly ready to move on. MS OneNote looks pretty good from my initial search. Anyone have any thoughts? I’m a Mac user if it makes a difference. Though I guess the people who’ve moved on and found a suitable competitor don’t hang out here anymore! I also looked for ian small’s email address.

  13. Hi. Considering that many users have apparently operated quite happily for years using the free service - which Evernote presumably intended purely as a 'trial' to encourage actual subscriptions - I can't see them improving the features available. The level of service you're looking for is, of course, available to subscribers - and if you're keeping travel plans or any other important details in there it might be an idea to consider a reliable paid-for service.

  14. Any update on this??? I am using the desktop app on my Macbook and it has become unusable now! The lag is so horrible it doesn't work. I am having to write things down in notepad and copy them into Evernote in order to have them with my other notes. Do I need to switch to something else or is this issue being worked on/ addressed???

  15. The new version sucks. Evernote began to consume 3-4 times more memory (more than 1 GB with 4 notes open), which is why the application slows down. The old version consumes 200-300 MB for the same number of notes. Even in the worst of times, when everyone called Evernote "the slowed-down elephant," the notebook ran faster. Side panel! Seriously? I see only a few tags on the 13-inch display instead of 20 in the old version. Do you call this "making a spacious design"? The new panel was not created to work with information. Colored tags! They made it possible to work very quickly

  16. What a disappointment this update is. The recent update to the Android app is similarly painful. Somehow Evernote doesn't realize that speed isn't just an incremental difference in a note taking app. If everything is sluggish, it becomes just unusable as the sort of 'brain extension' many of us have become accustomed to. I fear that having spent the time developing this whole rewrite, sunk cost fallacy will cause them to sick with it, rather than realizing that local data and native apps were a critical aspect of their success, and that's where the focus needs to be. Yes, obviously, it's

  18. The Alt-Shft-D insertion of date is something I would use for every new note, but it is only useful if we can set the preference to use the yyyy-mm-dd format. The current implementation only provides Month day, year. This is useless for sorting. Why would I bother to use this when I have to over-type it with the preferred format? The current implementation is of marginal utility and short-sighted.

  19. 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

  20. I do not think Evernote should go and change your formatting behind your back. If you create a bulleted list without checkboxes, it leaves it as a bulleted list. At a later time, if you add checkboxes to the items in the list, Evernote will convert the bulleted list to a checklist. Please note, that conversion happens the next time you view the note. It's not like autoformating where it converts a - into a bullet or a [ ] in to a checkbox. It does it behind your back and without any indication that it is doing so. I believe that when you leave a note, it should be in the same state w

  22. 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.

  23. My understanding is that the current Outlook Clipper only works with Outlook connecting to Exchange accounts. Which accounts for why some folk find it works OK with, say, their work account but not with their private Gmail even though they are both inside Outlook. Work on the old Outlook Clipper was effectively withdrawn quite some time back but lingered around. The new Evernote has finally drawn the veil over it but it also breaks the workflow of those using older versions of Outlook and non-Exchange accounts. As others have said, the Email to Evernote is about the only option left in thos

  26. 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.

  27. Thanks. I think it would be a better idea to notify users in advance about any changes / new limitations they encounter by agreeing to the installation of a new version. I've also noticed the newer 10.4 version does not support any other formats of exporting data except for native enex-format Is there any way I can toggle off new suggestions for updating the Windows app?

  29. To put things in perspective, cold starting the Evernote app on my iPad Mini 5 (A12) takes 4sec+ from launch to current note being displayed, more or less the same to create a new note. Running on the same hardware, Bear app cold starts to display current note almost immediately, and you can start writing a new note well under a second. For a mobile note taking app speed matters, a lot. It's extremely enervating that Apple and others pour immense resources into creating faster and more power efficient devices, just to have those gains squandered by app developers. Personally, I will

  30. There should be support to sync legacy until they can get the new version to a reasonable level of speed and function. The current version is like coming outside in the morning to a car with flats, no steering wheel, a broken dashboard. Legacy is just an unsupported loaner car that won’t drive side by side well with the new iOS version.

  31. Here's a screenshot, sorry it's heavily blurred but hopefully gives context. Labels A, B, C in red. A: Notebook stack, with a number of sub-notebooks. Can't right-click, which would be the intuitive option. When I left-click to select, I now know to look for three dots at position C, but nothing appears other than 'sort options' and 'view options' buttons B: Individual notebook. Can't right-click. When I left-click to select, the three dots do appear at position C. Not an intuitive place to put rename options, but at least it's there once we know where to look.

  33. I fully agree. With my several years of experience with EN, I never had this level of horrible experience with EN. It is crashing several times. A while ago, I just finished a long note, with a confidence that it would sync to Web automatically. Almost at the end of the note, it crashed and when I restart it shows the note was not synced. In the earlier versions, I was able to color the note books for quick reference. Now, all that feature is gone! Very frustrating experience with the update.

  34. I am really disappointed in Version 10. I was really excited when the invite popped up when I launched the app today. But, as soon as it installed I immediately jumped to find Preferences to make sure my settings were still in tact, as well as find out if anything new was available. I was super confused when I couldn't find them so came here to see what I could learn. And all I can say is it seems that Evernote WAY UNDERESTIMATED just how important Preferences are to so many users for an abundance of critical reasons. Did they not see how much users interacted with those settings o

I LOATHE Ver 10 for all the reasons already cited, in addition to a few of my own personal preferences. This half-baked, deficient product is an insult, especially to the more experienced and proficient long-time users. Notice than the menu bar on this very message box offers more options than Ver 10's new or existing Evernote entries! Sadly, since reverting to legacy is only a temporary solution which will eventually be unsupported, I'm forced to

  36. You start with a promise of significant changes coming soon and finish by saying (in effect) Legacy app downloads can disappear as soon as those changes arrive. Which is simply a more positively phrased version of what's already been said. It's a bit like me saying I'm committed to losing weight until my weight changes. If the company is truly committed there should be no problem promising the Legacy app will continue to sync without new bugs through, say, 2021. But such a promise would in effect be supporting the legacy app, wouldn't it? So aside from a reaffirmation of the previously announc

  37. I'm with virtually everyone on here.. This update is horribly bad. Additionally Evernote has been so slow, prone to hanging for that past couple of years it's pushed me to seriously exploring other solutions. I've been an Evernote user since 2011, after reading David Allen's getting things done, I wanted to get organized and as per his suggestion develop a trusted system. Since then I've used Evernote heavily. I had around 32,000 notes, including loads of clipped articles I wanted to save for potential research, I blew all that out by downloading then deleting the notebooks I don't need

  38. I went back to the legacy version as well. One upside in all this mess is that I've come to appreciate how great of a software product the old Evernote was. I just hope that they didn't fire most of their senior Windows and Mac developers and replaced them with mediocre Javascript/Typescript developers based on the assumption that a single code base + a bunch of can-do spirited, younger, and self-proclaimed full-stack developers, armed with Electron, would eventually build a better product that evolves a lot faster.

  40. Hi, up to now we paid money for plus/premium/business subscription to get access to full functionality and mature version i.e. free from critical/major bugs. The current version has been stripped down from about 80% of advanced functionality - users' feedback about this has been ignored. Moreover, as seen on this and iOS forum there is a lot of critical bugs related to stability, sync., etc. Therefore, I suggest that all versions of Evernote apps/services should be free for all until they will reach some considerable level of maturity. Current paid users should get at least a partial

  41. I do not like v10 either. I've downgraded two machines after they decided to upgrade automatically. v10 is great for grocery lists and small items but I think making it prettier was considered more than function. But to me Evernote has been going down hill for some time. We moved most everything to ClickUp in January and it's been great. We were losing too much data and too many issues with "can you move focus from note so I can add notes" issues.

  42. Thank you for providing the Legacy link. I use import folders for the three companies that I work for, and the update doesn't support this right now. I have had Evernote since 2009 and been on beta testing groups, etc. I am very disappointed with this update and can't believe they released it as is. If I wasn't so ingrained in this program, I would definitely stop using it.

  45. It is so slow for me that I cannot even test it out for a long period of time to see how it works. For work, we have remote desktop, it is even slower on that. I click on a note and wait 10 second if not more to note to load up and change. Same with typing, I type and wait for the word to show up. V6.25 works just fine via the remote desktop. I have it on the local desktop too but even that is not fast enough. Load times are really hindering the workflow and efficiency of using a "productivity app" which is supposed to let me find notes, reference material and more very quickly.

I will talk a little about use cases and maybe some alternatives for making support easier. Many people learning a Semitic language (including Hebrew, Arabic, Aramaic, etc) need to write notes, vocabulary, add glosses (short definitions) to text, or record references (like the gentlemen in this thread with Strong's concordance numbers (LTR) intersperesed with RTL text, Syriac was it?).

I see it as a new concept, a whole new design - and they turned the back to old customers, simple as that. I spend 90%> of my computer time at Evernote. It has been so for the past 11 years, my workflow is based on Evernote, I have thousands of notes. They messed everything up.
