  1. We're currently looking into how to better manage completed tasks. That might include an option to archive completed tasks (maybe after X days). We're also looking into options to bulk select/delete.

  2. I have been using Evernote - as a paid user - for just about 10 years at this point, and I am truly on the verge of leaving the platform entirely. I started a new job about two months ago, and brought Evernote with me as always. Due to the security requirements of my new role, I'm forced to use a Windows 10 laptop instead of my trusty Mac's. The laptop is new - a brand new HP zBook with 16 gigs of RAM, an i7, and 512gb SSD. I don't do a ton with it simultaneously - I'm a senior leader, so my time is spent on video calls, writing documents, presentations, and spreadsheets, doing email and taking notes. But Evernote... Evernote 10 is absolutely horrific on this machine. Evernote eats up RAM and CPU like Cookie Monster on a bender. It's come to the point where I now have to use my iPad to take notes during meetings or while working on projects because the application just shreds my resources and slows down my Windows machine. I've reinstalled twice in the last month to no avail. I don't wish to downgrade, either - the improved Dashboard is very convenient. To the heads of Evernote's Product and Engineering teams, from one head of Product to my peers at Evernote, please focus more on resource optimization and less on your new features. If you're asking me to pay you more RMR, make it worth my while. Fix this awful experience - and quickly. Thank you.

  3. Thank you @gazumped and @PinkElephant! Puts my mind at ease, noted on securing my accounts. I've been lazily updating my passwords with unique ones using a password manger - will make it a priority now. Thanks again!

  4. [Premium user] I'm not sure if these are all real issues, or I just haven't found where the functionality is now hidden, but I have been havig real problems with my workflow since "upgrading" to v10. ENScript.exe has vanished, so I can no longer run my various scripts -- DISASTER!! I have a template folder, and frequentl want to copy multiple notes to another directory -- I can't see how to do this any more -- I can copy single notes, but not multiple ones. "duplicating" in the same directoy and moving is no good, as "duplicate" DOES NOT DUPLICATE (it never has!) because it changes the note title I can't export multiple notebooks in one go (for backup purposes) Sort order appears to be global, rather than per notebook It's much harder to change the created date on a note The note title scrolls out of sight when scrolling down a long note thumbnail images not appearing properly in all cases (reported elsewhere) everything is HUGE and takes up acres of screen real estate -- I need to be able to see more snippets etc in one go no manual sync -- and it takes too long to sync -- I used to "webclip, sync, edit...", now I "webclip, pause until the note deigns to appear, edit...", much degraded workflow it's slooooooooow ... and I'm sure there is a lot more... I'm seriously thinking of "downgrading" back to v6 -- it worked -- this "upgrade" has removed so much functionality that is important for serious user workflow, and replaced it with useless (and slow) "gloss".

  5. @tgodfroyThe Tasks widget discussed in this thread does not show completed tasks. If you are referring to the Tasks view available in desktop and mobile, they both have a menu item called "Show completed tasks". Make sure to uncheck that option. This is currently not an option within individual notes, but we are currently looking into a solution for that.

  6. ahh, I understand what your saying now. I actually just got done switching out the emails like Pink Elephant suggested and that worked perfectly for my needs. Thank you all so much for helping me. I appreciate it. Kathy

  7. No issue on my Mac either. EN typically uses 6-8 % of the CPU when in use (2-3 % when idle) and occupies 1GB or a little above of RAM. It does not even start the cooler ventilator. MacBook Pro, i7, 32GB RAM. One tip if the app runs away is to really quit it. Not only hit the close (X), because then the background jobs will continue. Quit (on a Mac cmd-q) and restart. And if it was running away: Jot down your last actions with EN somewhere, open the task manager and make a screenshot, and issue a support ticket with activity log. My impression is that sometimes jobs don’t terminate as they should. These runaway jobs blow the resources out of the window. Stuff like this is hard to find, so every well documented ticket should help.

  8. After using 10 for a month then going back to legacy... wow... what a difference. Back to it being my favorite note app. Instantly starts and the UI is responsive. It's back to being convenient and not slowing me down. BTW, I am NOT a power user. Other than text and a few pictures, I don't use most features. I only have about 20 notebooks and only two of them have double-digit notes in them (still only about 20-25 notes in those). All on a Samsung M.2 SSD and an internet connection suitable for my kids to not complain when gaming. So this is not a size or hardware issue in any way. After 25 years years developing software and managing SW teams, I've seen it before. Someone had a great idea that will make maintaining all the platforms easier and "give the user this new amazing experience that the biz dev/marketing team says we need! We just gotta start from scratch and can't just refactor the old great stuff. Trust me! It will be worth it in 5 years!" Sometimes you just gotta eat the sunk cost, throw it away and fire a few people before you're out of business.

  9. I've been using the legacy version but decided to try v10 again for a week to see if it had improved. I think it has improved, but there are many issues that prevent me from adopting it. Slow performance - v10 takes at around 7 seconds to start up and fully populate on my laptop (which has decent specs). v6.25 reliably takes under 3 seconds. While not a showstopper, it is annoying especially when EN doesn't start with WIndows Slow performance - v10 sometimes lags as I type, v6.25 always allowed for full speed typing (I'm a very fast typer). This doesn't happen all the time but on longer entries I definitely notice a slight occasional "stutter" which creates a feeling that the editor is fighting me as I type. Not an enjoyable user experience. Strange issues with fundamental features - v10 sometimes loses keyboard focus as I'm typing. This seems to happen on longer entries when I'm near the bottom. I have to click the edit area to keep typing. Maybe this is some local issue but I never noticed this with v6.25. Combined with the laggyness it makes me want to avoid typing in EN. Global hotkey Ctrl-Alt-V works in v10 (yay!) but provides no feedback that it worked. v6.25 would pop-up an alert which I could then click and go to the new note, set its title, clarify the content, etc. In v10 I have to then open the EN client, locate the new note, etc. Much less efficient for my workflow. v10 EN does not start up when Windows starts. This does not play well with the previous point about the global paste hotkey since now when I hit Ctrl-Alt-V I have no idea if it worked since I may have forgot to start EN. I just want that paste to be there as an automatic part of working with my computer. v10 EN search is, at least for me, far inferior to v6.25 for getting the results you need quickly. Under v6.25, search results would update in real time as I typed. I could then keep an eye on these results and stop typing as soon as I saw what I needed. Under v10, you have to type in your full search first then hit enter and wait for the results to show. If you decide you need more search terms, you have to click on the search box again, and add additional terms. I makes me want to avoid search in v10 since it feels like search is fighting me. I still hate having no sync status. Other cloud services like Dropbox and OneNote show what's happening. This helps for example if I do a lot of work and want to wait for sync to complete before shutting down. With dropbox I can just wait for the green light and then shut down. With Evernote I have to just wait longer than I would have to to ensure that (hopefully!) it did its work. Seriously, bring back some indicator of sync state. When changing the notebook that a note belongs to, the list no longer shows my most used notebooks at the top. So now I have to search, every time, for the notebook I want in order to move the note to that notebook. Slows down my workflow a lot. Many other issues but I think the above are the most salient for me. I'm going back to v6.25. My conundrum now is whether to continue my subscription or not. I don't feel 100% comfortable supporting Evernote in this new direction with my subscription dollars, but the free option is too restricted to be a viable alternative. Even in this inferior state I think Evernote is the best product for my workflow - I've tried Keep, Joplin, Notion and they don't come close - as good as they are in their various domains. OneNote is a definite possibility, but even that would require a lot of workflow changes and the hassle of migrating everything over. Decisions decisions. Kevin

  10. Thank you, gazumped and PE. After being pointed in the right direction, I succeeded in submitting a ticket and being assigned a number, and am awaiting a response. I can only ascribe my oversight of that option to a lack of sleep after hours of struggling with navigation through all the information. I've been trying to learn about using a computer for a little while now, but still have a lot of trouble following directions. I am grateful for your patience with me.

  11. I've downloaded the latest version of Evernote (10.18.3 version) and since then, everything I do in evernote takes an insane amount of time, from several seconds to minutes to just retrieve a note. Furthermore, I've clicked on saved searches that lead to no note whatsoever, when I clearly have notes corresponding to that specific search and this happened a few times only in the past 30 min.

  12. Me too. It's still fairly easy to step back in Desktop and Android should you make a mistake, but obviously better not to have to do so. The problem is, I think, that with the huge number of users Evernote has, across all sorts of networks and devices, identifying a small number of causes for something as generic as 'slow' is always going to be difficult. We can only hope that they eventually find a way to speed thins up to an acceptable level. Otherwise it's a question of where to go next.... 😕

  13. I gave up on Evernote 10 shortly after it came out because it was impossibly slow, and I've been happily using the "Legacy" version ever since. Every time an update to Version 10 comes out, I wonder if they've fixed the slowness, and you've confirmed that they haven't. Despite all of the complaints about slowness, Evernote hasn't had the courtesy to put out any kind of message saying that they recognize the problem, that they're working on it, what one can do to fix it, etc. I got a survey a while back asking about slowness so it appears that they are aware of the problem. Apparently Version 10 must work for some people; maybe those who only have a few notes or who don't care about speed. If that's the case, they should just tell people not to upgrade if they have a lot of notes or whatever it is that causes the problem. What I find really offensive is that I'm now getting messages in the Legacy version asking me if I want to upgrade to 10. I am afraid that I will accidentally click on this and ***** up my whole system. The same thing happens on Android. My phone is set to automatically upgrade every app EXCEPT Evernote, and I'm afraid that one of their "don't you want to upgrade?" messages will accidentally cause me to upgrade, and it's very hard to go backward on Android. So the short answer is: it's not just you.

  14. 1. Paid for the Premium for two years. Realized they were NEVER going to improve the product, and realized the ONLY thing it did well was clip web pages. 2. This product runs SLOWER than my first database program on my Commodore 128 back in 1987. Pretty sad when you product is so slow one pines for the lethargic speeds of 25 years ago. 3. Trying and failing--nay, making the product worse--is actually worse than not trying. 4. A good product is not designed by giving users what they say they want, that is true. But a business that does not solve a customer's problems has just lost that customer.

  15. Tried many note taking apps over the period, but I must admit that I keep coming back to Evernote. Thanks to EN 10.x, I am again thinking of moving to another app I am a premium subscriber to Notion and Nimbus, but both of them lack something or the other. I hate to say this, but I might end up moving to OneNote !! Evernote Devs - pls make it fast somehow soon!

  16. @AlbertR@athertsthe ability to put tasks in tables is on our roadmap.

  17. Now it is possible to put the headings of three levels. It would be great if a table of contents for a note is automatically created based on them

  18. I hope Evernote is listening. Are you? The new version is a deal killer. Seriously. I get a failure to download error every time I open a new note. Typing inputs are slow. The comments I see across the platforms say the same. I had none of these problems until I updated to Evernote 10. I just went back to the legacy version to get basic functionality back. But this is not a solution. Is there a solution or one coming - we need to know! In a short amount of time, I will have to switch because if this issue is not addressed because functionally there will be no update in the future for me. Onenote is calling.

  19. I have had the same experience and found it untenable. I am human, I make mistakes and I expect a note taking app to allow me to fix it quickly. Ctrl-z is my best friend. Notions database rollback has saved my neck many times. In this forum, the problem Evernote 10 lack of native apps and local data has been discussed regularly. We wish to synch the data (preferably end-to-end encryption) but we expect it to be there when we need it. The unsupported Legacy has been presented to cover the inadequacies of Evernote 10. Some in the forums have found a safe haven in another app that they use in conjunction with Evernote. For Mac DevonThink is popular. For those using a PC ("In October, Windows was the OS on 88.8% of all PCs worldwide, up one-tenth of a percentage point from September," according to U.S. analytics vendor Net Applications, 09 November 2020) the choice is more difficult, not least because the new entrants overcome platform and device divides by cloud data, and browser / Electron apps. The hardware has never been so good as what we have today but the performance of the apps is largely indifferent to the hardware capability of the devices we use. So we wait and wait and wait...

  20. All multi-note operations are painfully slow. Even adding the same tag to a group of notes. I expect it scales linearly with the number of notes but somehow it seems much slower than that.
