  1. 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

  2. The new editor is more beautiful, but it is not very functional. On windows, the platform I use is very bad. You took away several features (Synchronize button, several shortcut keys, the table operation was too bad - new lines do not use the formatting of the previous one, etc ...). Not to mention the performance that is much slower than the classic version. And where is the preferences screen? I have never seen an application that cannot be configured. I use the premium version, but I'm already researching other apps to migrate (OneNote, SimpleNote, etc ...). In my opinion you ha

  3. I think given the frustration of users from the preview, beta and now the general release about the removal of functions and sparse information about which may still be under development, I think it would be a good idea for Evernote to publish a full roadmap to show which features are coming and a list of those that have been removed for good. I don't think this would even need dates, just a list of features with a guide as to In Development | Coming Later | Removed Permanently and to show where the new client is going. I think this would give users a clear indication of what to expect

  4. I`ve just installed the new v. 10 and I just couldn't believe my eyes: oh, no, they kept most of the horrible beta version they realeased a few weeks ago! I would't call it an upgrade. 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. My first shock (not yet recovered): they killed the local databases and syncing. Who asked me if I want to have a

  5. 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.

  6. I just set a reminder for a note using v10.1.7 and noticed that the options are fixed at date plus a time at the hour and half-hour. In the legacy 6.25 world I can set a reminder down to the second. Today I wanted to set a note to remind me 5 minutes prior to a meeting that I have scheduled at 9.15am. In version 10.1.7 My options are to have the reminder at 9am or 9.30am. In version 6.25 I was able to set the reminder for precisely 9.10am. Ironically, that time then appears in version 10.1.x Given that many folk use diary/calendar blocks of 15 minutes it would seem to be va

  8. Is This a Better Experience? There are now some markdown shortcuts that will be easy once I learn them. I do like the look of the editor. I haven't yet had a chance to test search very extensively but I have noticed some performance issues. The iOS version is still an absolute mess. I like the new look of the Editor here, but what does it offer except colors and standardized header sizes? Text boxes? Mix of handwriting and text? Ability to view .pdfs in-line? No, no, no. Other than a prettier editor, I don’t see

  9. Dear Evernote Team, thank you for continuing to evolve my potentially most cherished piece of software. However, the new v10 I just installed is annoyingly hard to use, because all interactions are so slow: Clicking on anything is no longer snappy like in typical desktop apps, but rather a slow and laggy experience, and I see the dreaded spinning wheel everywhere, e.g., just by switching between notes. Luckily we can roll back to the v7 client for now, but I hope this can be solved and the UI made fluid and usable, as this version of Evernote is, I am sorry to say, 100% unusable to me. Looking

You were quick to respond to my every request. No you barely acknowledge me and spend most of the time spinning. My new boyfriend OneNote is in the process of collecting my belongings from you.

  12. I've contributed to various threads about how the new search system works. There are however a number of issues which I, and other people, think need to be addressed beyond "it's different". This is my attempt to pull together all those issues. If I've missed anything (and I'm sure I will have done) then please post a reply. I'm hoping that the promised replacement of ctrl-Q will address some of the issues. Delay (up to 3 minutes was quoted in the beta) before changes to notes (including tags) are reflected in search Search results are not dynamic. Unlike the legacy ver

  14. I'm not one to gripe, but, I've been so frustrated on this topic I'm going to chime in. Evernote - I agree with the above, please, please bring back the old app until this new app can "finish baking." I've been a member since 2011. I was lured by great tools, and a promise that Evernote wanted to be the 100 Year Company. A promise that this would be my trusted companion for all my information. And, it has been that. My records system, my to do list, my journal - that I could use anywhere. Then we were promised "modernization," which, sure, things for sure look "dated" - but the

  15. So tags moved to the bottom in V10 EN since not that many people used them and they were occupying valuable real estate. And it is important to have the same essence whenever you crack open EN on whatever platform. I guess the IOS team didn't get the message. I don't have a Windows (not installing that for a while) or Mac V10 clip as they follow the browser. I'd just as soon not have the IOS screenshot from my phone but that's another story. A bit of a snark but also a bit of humor. We 2% taggers are like that. “When making experiences, attention to detail matters.” – Rich

  16. On that 2% thing... I'd love to know how precisely the stats they have were obtained, because there's always that "lies, darned lies, and (misinterpreted) statistics" thing. I used to work in Insurance as an Underwriter (like Xena, I have many talents) - one of the guys who guess how likely it is that something bad is likely to happen. We used to have conversations about costs and numbers that would bore drying paint. And the thing is: a lot of people sometimes get their sums very wrong. Evernote forinstance has (say) 250 MILLION users. If only 2% of them use tags, th

  17. Unlikely to bother anyone on here, given that most will be premium users already. But it feels a bit tin eared to make this change now when the new version is so troubled. If the idea is to prompt more people to pay a sub, is this really the right moment to make them make a decision one way or another?

  18. Another very disgruntled long-time user here - I've literally been with Evernote since it was a little desktop app. This feels more like Alpha software - how it was released in this state is unfathomable. It's bad enough that I genuinely think it might kill the company unless they move really fast to fix things - this might go down in software folklore as a $billion mistake! In addition to the lack of a sync button, the missing notebook counts, the missing Preferences, the weird keyboard combination to delete a note, the missing editing shortcuts and the missing right click menu on t

  19. I've participated in the Preview and the Beta programmes for this release. I've noted bugs when I've seen them, responded to the feedback questionnaires and posted observations to the Preview and Beta forums. I'm really surprised to see this release go live when the most recent beta didn't seem nearly ready. It feels as if this release has been rushed rather too rapidly. Perhaps to catch up with the iOS release? It doesn't even feel like a robust Beta, let alone a full release. I appreciate this is a "journey" and improvements can still be made, etc. etc. but shouldn't the app at least

  20. Hello Evernote. I, like most here, am an avid user of Evernote. I have been using it since 2011 without any problems. Enter version 10.0 (IOS, Windows, MAC) - Now my world is upside down. While I have been patient as I understand a re-write from the ground up is no simple task, I have to ask, why, even after such a disaster with IOS, would you punch out the Windows and MAC versions with so many problems? Kinda seems like a suicide mission. Clearly these updates carry with them devastating results and I am at a loss as to why you would further this problem by releasing a known problema

  21. 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

  23. That is my biggest worry. I can workaround lack of features but if it is going to be as slow as it is right now, we have a major issue (or at least I do). Right now, I type a tag in, it takes a second or two to register. Last night, I moved a tag, the pop up says it is moved, but the tag was still in the same location for a while. I waited and waited, it finally moved. This morning, I did the same move (since I did not move all the tags with that slowness) with the remaining moves on V6.25 at work and it was instantaneous which I had taken for granted from a Windows app and NOW am very gr

  24. This new version of Evernote, released only days after iOS14 came out (I ran betas of iOS14 before the main release) seems to be a disaster. Once again, they seem to be unable to get it right before a major release (this has been the case for years - I've been a Premium subscriber almost from the beginning of Evernote). Either their beta testers just don't pick up these bugs, or the coders don't fix them. And once again, they change stuff for the sake of changing it - like the Clipper, which now doesn't seem to work at all. See separate thread on Saving to Evernote from iOS. Mine simp

  25. PinkElephant, this is not about the cutting of "fat" features. These are essential features for many of us. The product that we purchase on an annual basis no longer functions as it did. Yes, I always welcome new iterations and improvements. However, the apps I purchase and use should not be reduced in useful features, but they should always be increased.

  26. I was upgraded to 10.1.7 today. It appears to be a disaster. 1) I have an inbox with 3000 notes I need to file. Dragging a note from the inbox browse pane to a folder takes around 8 seconds. Any other action I do during this time is ignored. Most notes are just small images or plain text. In the old client this action took a fraction of a second. 2) If I multi-select notes and try to drag them to a folder as a group, only the actual note dragged is moved - the other selected notes are ignored. In the old client, dragging a group of notes worked. 3) Everything is horribly sluggish

  27. Evernote has not released an "upgrade" to a previous version This is a .0 release of a new product; a base framework for upcoming addition of features If you're interested in the previous product; it has been renamed to Evernote Legacy and can be downloaded at https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/360052560314?fbclid=IwAR2TNqp-eGRH3Ds8Vfu-CiKPjYolJzZ_keR9eWQaDahJ2GN-7hwn595zI8w&__s=bsetfdgzirbvqtopurph

  28. I've been an Evernote user back to the first beta in 2008 (user ~2400 - according to an email from Evernote). Following the fiasco which is the latest release - I've been looking around for alternatives to Evernote - Nimbus and Notion being my current testing choices. Funnily enough though, the best alternative I've found so far is Evernote Legacy. I cannot believe how the development and release process has been handled so badly for a mature product with millions of users. Relying on Evernote Legacy is not an option though - given there is absolutely no commitment to keeping it runn

  29. I'm under the impression from tech support that pubic notebooks have been removed from v10: "We made a decision to discontinue support for published personal notebooks, also known as public notebooks. We understand this is a feature you’ve been using and we're sorry for any changes to your workflow this may cause. Any public notebooks you currently have will continue to work with their public URL, but you are unable to create new public notebooks in the new Evernote apps." Although I can understand that this feature removal is likely because your internal data shows that this is a fe

  30. PLEASE bring back custom fonts!! This was one of the many reasons why I love EVERNOTE . I LOVE Evernote but the lack of being able to choose a custom font on the new 10.0 Mac Desktop App is highly disappointing and frustrating!! Only having 6 fonts to choose from is SO archaic!! I can understand this update on the WEB version and even on the IOS versions but NOT on the desktop version!! I am a graphic designer and this is CRITICAL to my business!! One of the reasons I chose Evernote is because I had the freedom to choose my own fonts, colors, styles, formatting, etc. and I was able to import

  31. PLEASE, FOR YOUR OWN GOOD, GIVE EVERNOTE A CHANCE TO APOLOGIZE AND IMPROVE. I have been using Evernote since 2011, happily. The last release gives me, like many other fellow users, multiple headaches. A lot of our favorite features are gone. Some new features are not user friendly. Performance is slow. PR was poor. Yes, it should have stayed in beta mode much longer. This holds also true: Evernotes basic intentions for this total make over are legit and logical. They just had to escape the dead end street. Potentially Evernote is still the best organizer out there. I understand the anger and f

  32. Hi, Dissapointed in the new version 10.1.7 Windows client Basic features missing: - Top list viewing mode unavailable. - Sorting on tags column impossible. Besides that software feels slow and bloats. I would like to downgrade or something, this doesn't make sense and certainly doesn't make me productive. Don't fix things which aren't broken. Cancelling my automatic subscription for now. Evernote: you just lost me.

  33. The End.... This morning, after 10 years of subscribership, I finally gave up and moved my database to Apple Notes. What did I learn? 1. It was amazingly easy (see link at the end of this comment) I exported my Evernote notebooks, one notebook at a time to ENEX files on my iMac desktop. I then clicked import in Apple Notes and they uploaded almost instantly. I then moved the notes to appropriately named folders in Notes and ... done. Several thousand notes to me a half hour. It then took another 30 minutes for everything to upload to iCloud so that they are accessible on all my de

  34. I have read through most of the notes from this thread. One thing which I agree with completely is the reality that the Evernote team handled this transition very poorly and most of all they released to production version the BETA that was NOWHERE NEAR finished and ready for replacing the 6.25 Legacy version. I have gone back to the Legacy version and am waiting hopefully for the Evernote team to fix all these problems listed below. For me the central deficiency is the inability to edit the Create Date and Time, which is crucial for me in how I use Evernote. I use it for both busine

  38. I for one find it useful to get others perspectives, and benefit from their experience. I'm in the same boat - I think v10 is fundamentally broken and I've reverted back to Legacy while I look at alternatives. I've been a rusted on (10 year) subscriber, but I've lost all confidence in the product with v10.

  42. Popping in with one more thought: the most important issue not raised in this interview may have been communication. Podcast interviews a couple of weeks after the fact are not satisfactory. Everything said here could have been summarized in the release notes or some obvious communication. Why wait till people are hopping up and down to tell them everything's going to be OK?

  43. You aren't alone. I never thought I'd consider leaving Evernote. I'm scared to do it. But, after 3 days with Evernote 10 on my Windows 10 device, I'm done. The lack of functionality is staggering. No sync button, no internal links, no note counts next to the notebook. Heck, I don't understand why I can't delete a note anymore with the DELETE key?! (why should I have to push TWO keys to delete a note??). I'm very frustrated and scared that Evernote is done. For now, I'm going back to the older desktop version. The iOS version doesn't affect me as much, but I rely on Evernote as a pow

  44. Fully concur but this still would be only a second best solution. In the year 2020, it should be an absolute no-brainer that a professional software with a considerable subscription fee has the ability not only to turn the spellchecker on/off, but also to check syntax and grammar in multiple languages. Most freeware is able to do this. It is really ridiculous that users have to ask for this "feature".

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

  49. This sadly doesn't seem to be a new version of Evernote. It is an entirely different product that has access to our Evernote data in the cloud, but bears little resemblance in functionality to the Windows version of Evernote. So many features missing. This is worse than the iOS version, which, after being in the beta for a few weeks, opted out, installed Evernote 8.x from the App Store, then turned off automatic updates. So much is broken. No import folders? No global note shortcut keys? This is unusable to anyone that has used Evernote for over a decade. ☹️

  50. I articulated this in the beta forums and am re-adding here to allow for voting up of the feature for those who agree with me. I very much dislike the added step of having to click a note link, then click the link again in the menu that appears. Adds all kinds of extra clicks to my workflow. I'm aware that Command+Click will open the link in a new window (and bypass the click on the drop down URL that appears). This is an ok workaround for external note links (out to the web, for example) but not at all what I'm after for internal note links (I don't want them to open in a new window
