  1. Howdy everyone, Following up my Is this a farewell ? post a couple months ago, I thought it would be nice to share why after wasting a gigantic amount of time, I am back in EN. Applications I tried to migrate too OneNote Synology Note Station Bear Obsidian Joplin Drafts Notion Also, I would like to outline my use case, so readers understand what I am looking for in the note taking app [Personal] Bills & Bills’ payments [Personal] Family’s documents [Business] Meeting notes [Business] Clients’ information and notes [Business & Personal] Knowledge base [Business & Personal] Saving web articles OneNote I was very close at transitioning to OneNote, but I eventually decided not to because of the difficulty finding staff and the crippled tagging system. What I liked: The iPad app, including its free hand annotating capabilities OneNote notebook databases are stored files Notebook > Sections > Pages give an extra depth of organization Ability to write anything wherever on screen, endless canvas Integrating options What I didn’t like: Migration tool didn’t work Could not find my content OCR not supported in attachments Crippled tagging Microsoft ribbon Sharing only available with a Microsoft account Synology Note Station Really awesome functionalities, being a proper Evernote copycat. It also has a tasks feature, that EN just introduced ! Despite not ending up in it, I am keeping it as a local backup of EN, sadly this includes manually exporting and importing notebooks. What I liked: Self-hosting The ability to create parent/children tags Part of the Synology ecosystem, meaning all my backup strategies apply to my notes too All functionalities I need What I didn’t like Limited shortcuts, very hard to discover Attachments were not inline, but hidden in a popover Tasks could not be viewed in a summary, but again hidden in a popover iPadOS app doesn’t work, it is crashing The app has a lot of annoying glitches 0 integration options Bear What an awesome app. Beautiful, amazing organization -only by tagging- system, full markdown support, amazing exports. Still keeping it as a markdown composer, but not as a note app. What I liked The UI Tagging Archiving Full markdown support Export to html What I didn’t like Deployment; The app is using a sqlite database syncing to iCloud Just a markdown editor after all No OCR to attachments Obsidian, Joplin, Drafts & Notion Won’t make the comparison, because I didn’t use the apps a lot. Mainly, I didn’t like the UI. I am keeping that Drafts app though, because it offers unlimited (no joking) integrating capabilities Why I came back While testing the other options, EN fixed its abysmal performance to a point that it is -almost- functional and introduced the Tasks feature, offering a functionality I need. The most important reason why I came back though is experiencing the hard way that keeping a lot of productivity apps is the biggest productivity killer. EN is far from great, but it is a one app fits most for me. Keeping 1 app ended up being my most important criterion, so came back to EN. Why I am frustrated, again Cannot create 2 filtered notes snippets in dashboard, because I am not paying the highest tier !! Cannot add 2 calendars, because I am not paying the highest tier !! iPad app is still crippled, including a frustrating issue where while being in a client meeting, EN locks my editing capabilities while writing in a note !!!! Only Google support for calendars and documents Tasks is great, how about focusing in other functionalities now that aren’t That’s it, from my experience transitioning is a painful and time consuming process and I strongly recommend analyzing the transition app a lot before moving forward. Most important thing to avoid is keeping multiple productivity apps, ending up in a situation where you don’t know what to use for what, searching where you saved what and struggling to find a way to integrate where most note taking apps are still crippled at that section. It’s sad for EN, because it was the most integrated app a decade ago. Happy note taking !

  2. The ctrl-a shortcut for the OS X app is wrong. It should move to the beginning of the line, not select all. CMD-a should select all. Is there a way to fix this? It's not even listed in the shortcuts menu.

  3. みなさま サポートチケットを発行して問題対応していただいておりましたが、 サポートの方から10.23.7にて現象が解決したとの連絡を受けました。 私の方では今の所安定していますが、 現象が発生するときは怒涛の発生率ですが、落ち着いているときにはピタっと発生しなくなるため ぜひみなさんもアップデートして問題が発生しないか様子を見ていただければと思います。

  4. @Nygaard EN rolls out a completely recoded app. Now everybody has his pet functions, and cries „They ignore me“ when it does not show up. They probably ignore nobody - they follow the agile software development concept. They released a core app initially, and now add feature by feature with every release. Typically what is today in its design phase will be coded next, then follows QA and then release preparations (which include adaptation of help documents, tutorials etc.). So probably with 10.23 released they have internally already everything up to 10.30 defined and in the making. So just enjoy every release as a miracle package, I am sure there is plenty to come. Eventually your functions will show up as well.

  5. Hello! Today we released Evernote for Windows 10.24. This release contains a highly requested update to the in-note encryption experience. It is available via the Windows Store and as a direct download version from our website. If you are already running one of these versions, we are progressively rolling out to compatible devices and the new version will be available on all supported operating systems within 7 days. To learn how Evernote delivers app updates, when you’re eligible for an update, and how to update your Evernote app, visit How Evernote delivers app updates to our customers. New to Windows 10.24 You can now reveal and edit an encrypted block of text without permanently decrypting it first. The text will be re-encrypted as soon as you navigate to a different note, so your sensitive data stays hidden. Search just got smarter. If you're in a notebook or space and click into the search bar, the app will start your search in that notebook or space by default. Fixed highlights: We’ve resolved the issue where the app would sometimes replace default file associations. The app is now better at displaying notebooks in non-Latin languages (Japanese, for example). So you shouldn't see any more names duplicated in your notebook list. The app would occasionally prevent you from moving notes to another notebook, even if you had access to the recipient notebook. If you merged two or more notes with tasks in them, sometimes the tasks wouldn't appear in the new note. Even if you completed all the tasks in a note and deleted the note, it would still show up in your tasks list. Let us know what you think and we appreciate the continued feedback. We will keep hard at work! Thank you!

  7. Could it be that this notebook is somehow set as default notebook ? Between "Add to Shortcuts" and "Add to stack" there usually is the menu option to set the notebook as default notebook. If this option is missing, it means that this notebook IS set as default notebook. And the default notebook can't be deleted.

  8. Hi @matej1990! I just tested the described issue and can confirm it for my Android devices on 10.19 as well. I cannot open an image which is embedded as attachment by just clicking on it as you described. Clearly a simple bug as converting to imbedded image instantly shows the picture. Has to be fixed.

  11. Decade long premium user here, at the end of my wits. I open a new note and it's already populated with a pinned one. Major lagging or just blank screen spinning. Search does not work. Annoying widgets to click through just to get to notes. Please reinstate the old version because it was fast, productive and efficient and the new version is the exact opposite. You can push your experiments on the free users but I pay for it so I will have a say in it or I will find a different product. You just destroyed an amazing app so fire those responsible and salvage what you can. I don't want to go through the trouble of migrating thousands of notes to a different platform but i will not pay for a slow, inefficient and counterproductive product.

  12. Great thread and thanks for sharing. My recent experiences with EN have, however, meant that I'm migrating to OneNote. There are three things that have this happen: 1) Viewing on the iPad app of a web-clipped note. These are unreadable as it only shows as a narrow column. 2) Offline notes doesn't seem to be working - ok, a new iPad, but this is seamless on a 40$ amazon fire. Haven''t managed to get this going and don't want to simply select make all available offline. 3) The fact that you can no longer edit encrypted text within a note. You have to make anew. So seemingly stupid to enforce that by design (not a bug - I opened a service request for that one). So paid subscription cancelled (it will run for a few more months, so more a statement of annoyance than anything else). The big pain for me in using anything microsoft is the passwords / usernames. For example, even though I have an office265 subscription, that's not a "microsoft" account. Ridiculous, so I cannot share with that.

  13. A couple of comments about Bear - I am running both Bear and Evernote in parallel trying to decide which to stick with. I like the fact that Bear uses iCloud - the developers have no way to access my notes, and my experience is that syncing in quicker with Bear than with Evernote. Bear is a Markdown editor for sure, but can also serve as an archive - notes can contain anything you want as an attachment: image files, PDFs, links, web clips, or files from other apps, like Numbers spreadsheets. But I agree that a weakness is lack of OCR of attachments. So I have to decide how important that is. For many, it may not be an issue, or only a minor one. So I have to weigh the advantage of OCR in Evernote versus the speed and UI of Bear. One thing the two apps share is slow development. Evernote after almost a year, still doesn’t have all the functions of the previous version. And Bear has been promising a new version now for a couple of years, but hasn’t yet delivered.

  14. Hello everyone, I decided to spare the time to write this disappointment post. Let me note right here that the disappointments you will read in this post is just a small -but most recent- fraction of my 10 years awesome user experience with EN. I have been using Evernote for the past 10 years, maybe half of which are premium. Documents, thoughts, tutorials, web archives, book suggestions, recipes, code, everything I care about is on Evernote and I am still using and love Evernote Moleskine notebooks. Early this year and thanks to COVID (spare) time, I took the time to transition all my data from the cloud to my Synology NAS, firstly because I ended up paying >500$/year (excluding business) to cloud subscriptions but most importantly because I wanted to own my personal data and not pay rent for it. After a streak of subcription cancelling, I cancelled almost all -I am still left with Evernote and iCloud-. I will be cancelling iCloud too when I 've built the Photo workflow I want to. And.. last one standing: Evernote. After giving it a thought and despite the fact that Synology and OneNote both offer a seamless way to migrate notes from Evernote, I said "no". I will be keeping my Evernote subscription, despite the fact that my subscription cost almost doubled in my paid plan years. Why ? Because I got high value from Evernote and it was acceptable to have my data on the cloud but get instantaneous search, famous Evernote OCR etc. And then... v10 came along. Being a developer myself, I don't get judgemental on product changes. When my clients are going back and forth with features they themselves requested, how easy would it be to offer features that 225M users will love or at least find acceptable ? However, performance/productivity aspects are must-haves and there is no point keeping a productivity app that kills your productivity, and that brought me to: shall I cut the last man standing ? Before doing that, I thought let's share some of those reasons, maybe someone will pay attention: New version Performance/Productivity/Reduced Functionality issues. The new app is by far the worst transition I had in my 10 years using EN. It feels (and probably is) a rubbish web hybrid that builds to macOS app too. Don't get me wrong, the UI is great/clean, note composing tools are better than ever, but guys/ladies, creating a note, moving batch/1 note to another notebook are the essentials. Who cares about functionality #3475 when you don't deliver functionalities #1 and #2. Here are 6 reasons why it sucks + 1 inconvenience: When dragging document to Evernote icon, user needs to click on a notebook, wait up to 10 seconds so the import occurs When moving a note to another notebook, it may take up to 30 seconds to be able to select the desired notebook. There is a lock icon and notebooks are greyed out for up to 30 seconds ffs. See screenshot here. When in need to do a batch action for a lot of notes, maximum number of notes is 50 ! (Seriously, is this a joke ?). That's also why I believe the new version is a web hybrid built. Launching the new app in every client (macOS, iOS, web) takes up to 1 minute, when data is not in cache Both macOS, iOS apps "hung". They are stuck and either need up to 30 seconds to revive or they need to be quit. Truth be told, newest updates have limited this issue to a minimum, but yet existing occasions. Linking notes inside the app ! That functionality existed, can't say I was really happy, but at least it worked. Now if you link one note to another, it creates a link that only launches on web ! When searching, ⌘ A selects all notes (all=50 as explained in 1.3) instead of search text Cost commitment. That's why I cancelled Dropbox, they took me from 69 to 129 in 1 year. If not mistaken, I believe Evernote went from 39 to 59, which I find somewhat acceptable considering I am literally paying to accommodate the free user tier. The Moleskine partnership is really cool I have to say and I 'd love to see an update on that Palaeolithic API. EN's API is literally last decade. I attempted to use EN API, but the process is only intended for external vendors that need to integrate a product to EN. The documentation is so outdated and non-existing, that really makes me wonder how safe my data is on EN. Documentation does not include the plain simple cURL commands. Innovation Stopped. It seems like there is no innovation happening, especially after Phil took off. I get it, there is no way competing to notes.app when Apple is really investing in that, but I expect to see some new features in my note-taking app of choice. There is limited app updating (Scannable, Skitch, Penultimate) going on. Features and business strategies I would like to see in the future Performance/Productivity/Reduced functionality -> See issues above. After having composed this post, I tend to realise that all those issues might be related to my assumption that EN now uses a web hybrid. If my assumption is correct, we need native apps. Batch actions -> See 1.3. Why on earth would a functionality of that importance be removed ? I know, hybrid app, right ? Stable Pricing -> Either keep it same and offer more or reduce it and keep it as is. At the moment we are paying more and probably even more in the future for same functionality with performance decrease ! Where does this elevation stop ? Maybe reduce functionality for free users and offer paid ones the value/innovation their cost deserves ? Tagging AI -> Tag suggestions based on user use. For example, every month I import in EN a tax document and payment. How hard would that be to identify pdf pattern and recognise that there are 1000 similar notes with the same tags. Breath-taking iPad app -> Penultimate was great back when it was introduced, but nowadays seem somewhat outdated. iPadOS has brought numerous features on note-taking and there are apps on the App Store that do use those innovations. We need the Evernote iPad app to be as good as it deserves to be. Automations -> Not getting up to date with the environment has its cost: the environment will not update too. Automating note imports in EN should be part of the EN app, just like the EN email. I am not talking about Zapier stuff, but plain-simple automations. At least create a AppleScript dictionary we can use Tasks Management -> We got reminders that -tough truth- never reached an acceptable state of productive use. I literally remember 3 years ago, I needed to manually go to notes 1-1 and clear reminders to remove the clutter. Alright, that's 2 free hours from me to you @EverNote, a price I am happy to pay considering the productivity gain I had all those years. So, are you going to keep me productive or is this a farewell ? Best regards, Askaridis Stathis

  17. I’m afraid this isn’t surprising. There’s been so many shady things about Nimbus, I would go back to paper before I considered them an option. I hope you can get your data into a format that helps you. Thankfully I got a good discount with EN recently for the year so I’ll see how the next year unfolds.

  18. I've got 55K notes in Evernote and I had already decided that if I ever move away from this company I'll start a new 'clean' account with a new provider. Where I need content from Evernote I can copy, clip (if that's an option) or email (also if...) it into my new account - but in my case at least Evernote is my 'reference library'. 99% of the content is just look-up information and history with a very small element of work in progress. I can move that 1% to a new home, and as long as my Evernote account remains available it's just my go-to look-up resource. If I were to spend a month or two getting everything converted over to a new home I'd just be wasting most of my time. YMMV!

  19. That's exactly the reason that I stick with Evernote because my data can be imported by most note taking apps that want to compete with EN. In the worst case, I can even write an importer myself because the ENEX format is very well documented and formally described in an XML scheme. Edit: I don't understand why you removed your FREE Evernote account ? Maybe, you still have an ENEX backup that can be used for the Bear import or to restore your Evernote account?

  20. Got the following response when I submitted a ticket. At least they know there's a problem. Raven B. (Evernote Help and Learning) Oct 21, 2021, 7:58 PDT Hello Eric, Thank you for contacting Evernote Support. I'm Raven, and I'll be looking into your concern. I understand that you're having trouble with clipping your emails with the Evernote Web Clipper. Please know that we are aware of this problem you experience and that our developers are working on a fix; however, we are unable to provide a definite time as to when it will be completed. In the meantime, you may try these workarounds until a permanent fix is implemented: The issue where the "Email" option doesn't show is usually the first time you click on the Web Clipper. A possible workaround is to close the Web Clipper box > and click on it again. You can also save emails to Evernote using your unique Evernote forwarding email address. I apologize for the inconvenience it may have caused, and hoping for your patience and understanding on this matter. Kind regards, Raven B. Customer Support Representative

  21. Yeah, Windows desktop V10 is not ready for prime time for moderately complex workflows that feature editing and updating in tight time frames. The overall slowness and built in lags for updates to be refreshed in the client make it mostly unusable for me. Fringe use case in the new world I suppose. It's a shame as 6.25.1 enabled me to be a productivity ninja with pretty much instantaneous access to information and task lists (reminder search based).. Orders of magnitude slower with V10. And, I have had more duplicate/conflict notes in the last month using V10 IOS and desktop 6.25.1 than I had in the prior 12 years I've used EN. And I am diligent in trying to sync when I enter the IOS platform. Problem is you just can't tell when everything is synced. EN says it is, but it isn't as I have viewed notes I know had changes which aren't as yet changed. PITA.

  22. Feature Request: Add Outlining Capabilities to Evernote Evernote is great, but it's dying for the ability to create Notes that contain Outlines which are easily collapsed and expanded during creation and in use. One way to implement it would be a switchable editing mode, between standard formatting or outline mode. In outline mode, pressing the Enter key creates a new outline item, and pressing the Tab key changes the current item into a sub-item. Clicking on an item's action icon causes its sub-items to collapse out of, or expand into view. That's the way the Ecco Pro PIM did it, and something simple like that would be a good start for Evernote. The name Evernote implies a product that takes notes -and collapsible/expandable outlines are a huge part of note taking.

  23. Working for me - GDrive is no comparison, because EN is a complete package, doing a lot more than simply storing a file. I switched to EN some years ago when I went paperless. I have not regretted it since - I often surprise other people by being able to produce exactly the content needed, wherever I am, by a fast search. You get used to have everything you need available. EN is my information platform since. For feeding it I use an ix500 office scanner, a scanning app for my iPhone and the build in scanner of the app, depending on what I need. Scanner and scanning app produce already OCRed content, for example. Other important means to get content where needed are web clipper and forwarding e-mails. What is important for me: I can then annotate the information - this makes it dynamic, enriching the information copied by my own meaning. Different from others I use another app (Things 3) as my GTD hub. I will probably reconsider this when EN introduces recurring reminders - a feature I need for my GTD setup.

  24. Hi all, Over the last few months, we’ve introduced a lot of new features and enhancements to Evernote. Now that we’ve stepped up the pace of our app updates, here’s a recap of some of the highlights to make sure you don’t miss out on any recent improvements that you might find helpful: Get the Evernote that’s right for you - We released a new lineup of subscription plans to make it easier for you to get exactly what you need. Whether you want to be more organized, keep your home and family life on track, or be more productive at work, there’s a plan that’s right for you. Easily manage projects and workflows - The new filtered notes widget helps you turn Home into mission control for anything you want to accomplish. It does this by displaying notes based on your chosen criteria alongside related tasks, calendar events, and more—so all the info you need to move your projects forward is front and center. Capture important info, right from Home - Create new entries from your notes, tasks, notebooks, and tags widgets. Click the button in the upper right-hand corner of these widgets to add content, without having to switch your context. Find what you need, faster - Filtered searches help you find your notes based on their attributes, like when you created them or what they contain. Now you can save your filtered searches for future use. Evernote will also suggest filters after you perform a search or add a filter. A smoother note-taking experience - We’ve made enhancements to the editor, so it behaves more intuitively. The editor is now better at recognizing emails and URLs, turning these into clickable links. It’s also better at handling dragging-and-dropping and copying-and-pasting files to and from Evernote. In addition to releasing updates more frequently, we’re constantly discovering more ways Evernote can be useful to you. Check out these blog posts on how Evernote can help college students be more organized and how fantasy football fans can use it to get a competitive edge. This is a quick summary of what’s new. For a more detailed rundown, visit our blog. As always, I’m looking forward to hearing about your experience with the latest improvements. Take care, Shane

  25. 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 and productively with notes. Where is the color? Shortcuts! Do you know why they are needed? To always be in front of my eyes and help in my work. Why did you remove them? Why did you add a link to the source under the title? This is unnecessary visual rubbish. Hide it. 2\10 I am disappointed

  27. I was recently updated to version 10. I have been having large performance issues ever since. I have been an Evernote user for over a decade, since the early days of the service. Over that time I have accrued a large number of notes over several notebooks. I use Evernote on a daily basis for everything from GTD, archiving, technical notes, planning, journaling, and a whole host of other content-heavy applications. The offline client has served me very well during that time. When I quickly (!) needed an answer to a question I could pop open Evernote and find what I was looking for almost immediately. The new v10 client spins for up to a minute or more on many of my notes, regardless of whether I opened the same note just a few minutes earlier. I have a few rather large notes that have yet to respond at all, just spinning for multiple minutes until I get frustrated and close the application. This is making Evernote unusable for me. If the client cannot provide me access to my notes quickly then it ceases to provide a useful function. Waiting for minutes to access reference material that should (and was!) stored locally is a non-starter. When I open my notebooks or search, I need the material to be returned quickly. Otherwise, I have to mentally put down what I was working on when I needed the reference note in order to wait or debug the problem with the EN client. I have found myself copying and pasting my most referenced notes into other applications just so that I can access the information quickly. Having to maintain "quick reference note" copies in another application invalidates the whole purpose of having Evernote in the first place. Please restore offline caching functionality. The notes need to load near instantly and without UI-blocking spinners. Otherwise, the whole point of a handy nearby notebook is lost. Client version: 10.17.6-win-ddl-public (2775) Editor: v126.2.16348 Service: v1.37.8

  32. I've been getting duplicate notes spawned as I am creating and writing text notes too, for the past week or so. Not every time but almost daily. I'm using Evernote web though (albeit on a Mac, in Safari), not an app (Evernote not even installed on my Mac) so this seems to be across platforms. Have created a ticket with support.

  33. With some releases there are database modifications, probably to speed things up. When this happens, it takes longer, sometimes much longer. Usually they show a notification, like "Updating your database - please wait". But it happens they don't advise, which in fact is bad user orientation.

  34. it's difficult to cut out all permission bundling. there is a certain balance to be had between broad permissions, fine-grained permissions or maybe even introducing a domain-specific language to manage permissions. OS developers don't want to add too many permissions because that just slows development and testing down. Customers don't want permissions to be fine-grained until they suddenly do. App developers don't want permissions to ever change because that means existing working software may break. in the classical windows and old mac desktop world every app could do everything with every other app and its data. Unix etc always had the concepts of users and groups and every file has individual permissions, but access to services had to be governed individually by each running service. Linux has had SELinux for 10 years now. This controls who can use what service (i imagine other Unixen and maybe even Windows has something similar), but configuration is a pain. permission lists tend to grow over time. for example, the current list of android permissions can be found here: https://developer.android.com/reference/android/Manifest.permission. Some probably mean very little to the average person (ACCESS_BLOBS_ACROSS_USERS anyone?)

  35. If EN is not syncing I have made the same experience as you: It syncs up to the server, web client looks good, but it does not downsync to other devices. I have not encountered this any more since summer, however. There was some improvement mentioned in release notes about this syncing problem. My advise here is simple: Ask support to take a look. https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

  36. Yup, @asole70 .enex backup of important notes, but also mainly all my documents/files are on my NAS and than I link them to EN. It also helps privacy of my documents and replaces lost function of local EN notebooks. Thats why was important for me linking to local files from EN. Only problem I have now is that link to devonthink still doesn't work normally so I cannot connect all files on the mobile version.

  37. Strange 😕 I haven't had this problem on my Android 11 phone. Did you try emptying Evernote's cache?

  38. What is the latest on updates to the Android version? I have years of notes and it is completely unusable at this point because of performance issues.

  39. Have not heard about relative to the M1 but certainly seeing similar issue with Intel CPU with macOS version of V10 EN app. I remain hopeful that the EN team will concentrate on being a good laptop program soon. I have heard it a challenge being based on an Electron App but EN is by far worse at energy consumption than VSCode and other apps based on the framework. EN remains very valuable to me so I continue to hope this will be addressed. There are other threads that raise the same issue (although not on the M1).

  40. I have also been having problems for the past month. While I'm working on one note, I will suddenly get a notification that there is an alternate version of a note I'm working on. I will also see that there are at least 5 duplicated notes, which I have to delete to avoid clutter. Is there a fix for this? If there isn't, I hope it gets addressed soon.

  41. I have a Personal (Premium) account. I also have been getting "more than one version" and only have Evernote open/active on my MacBook (M1 Chip). VERY frustrating. Yesterday I deleted 4 "versions" of a note I was working on.

  42. I won't be happy without a backdoor to augment features not supported by the front level software I was impressed by the Filterize features, but wasn't a user; my alternative solution is scripting on a Mac with Applescript using Evernote Legacy (scripting is not supported by Evernote's v10 product)

  44. I haven't thought to put it all down but things I miss(ed) are. The windows clipper (used to be able to right click on the Evernote icon and clip anything from the screen into Evernote with no issues) The auto folder import (this is back - but was missing for over a year) The clean layout (now when I open the app on my windows PC I am presented with so much b/s I can't think! What the f is scratch pad? Why are more than 50% of each note thumbnail just empty space , and the thumb of the note part is so small proportionally. Why can't I resize the panels? Like when I am in votes view, the new note space is 50% and the list of thumbs on the left is 50%, but why cant I drag the bar to see more thumbs? I can drag it to make the note thumb area smaller, but not larger. I have an MS Surface PC with a Pen, a Samsung Note with a Pen, and an iPad with a pen, yet I can't hand write in the note compose window with any of them! Why? Evernote does an awesome job of reading handwritten notes (so I can search them), but it wont let me write them! Thumbs are broken, when I scroll down a few pages in my notes view - all the thumbnails, instead of showing my notes, are just white boxes with Grey paper Icon in them. The notes themselves are fine, but I have no previews. FYI I have 8,365 notes dating back to April 2010.

  45. I have been an EN user since Beta, and became a Premium user as soon as it was offered. I do not understand why EN is lagging with simple security options, such as easy encryption of notes and notebooks. This really should be as easy as a Right-Click or selection in properties for a Note or Notebook. The existing method of selecting text in a note and then using a Right-Click option to encrypt it is cumbersome at best. Yes, it is a nice feature if one wants to encrypt only a portion of a note. That's fine. But there should be an easy way to (1) encrypt an entire note without selecting text and (2) encrypt an entire notebook. I would be willing to pay a few bucks extra a year for this additional encryption ability. Seems this should be a no-brainier for EN, both as a tech matter and as a business/profit matter.

  46. Why even have the button to create a new task at the same level as new notes? If the task goes into a note then the task button should be at the note level, in the menu bar above notes. That's the way I would like it. Now, to create a new note, I have to click new then select note. For people (like myself) who rarely use tasks, this is an unnecessary additional step.

  47. Hate to break it to you, but there's (mainly) only us users here... and while we feel (and share) your pain, there's nothing much other to do than wait for improvements. I saw the writing on the wall and opted not to 'upgrade' to v10, so am continuing to work happily in Evernote Windows 6.25, Android 8.13 and (occasionally) web 10.x - as far as I'm concerned, nothing is happening until those tools are ripped from my cold, dead devices. To get your message across to Evernote (which is an impressive summary, by the way), maybe send a link to this thread to Support as feedback? https://help.evernote.com/hc/requests/new https://twitter.com/evernotehelps

  49. The issues are so many and wo serious that is difficult to point them out. New version in slow, unacceptably slow. Tags are collected and asigned by the program from no-one knows where. When clipping, you must close and reopen the note to erase all those fake tags and add the right ones. When I clip videos from Youube, there was previously an option to clip 'only the link'. This saves space amd gets faster. You also avoid bad cluttering with incorrect stuff from the long vids page in youtube, and allows you to streamline the clipping of several related vids by joining their respective notes in the PC app afterwards. It was a VERY useful ability from previous version. Well, NO MORE. Also when clipping Internet pages into Evernote notes, the Android app now assigns a wrong default title. (To make things worse and more weird, the title is in Spanish! though I have as default language English in all my apps). The tagging ang untagging actions take way more time than before. I realize now that tagging is useless if you cannot do it fast. ALL other functions are also significantly slower. I suspect that even searching has become slower amd buggier. So Evernote, please acknowledge the wrongdoing and return to previous version. Please.

  50. I have noticed when working on notes that Evernote 10 begins making duplicates of the note I am working on. By the time I am done I sometimes have to figure out which of the 2-4 notes is the correct one and Trash the rest.
