  1. Well, I recently came across this video detailing the original vision of EN. I never saw it back in the day, but it sums up what EN felt like for me - and doesn't anymore. Today's Evernote? I do not wish them well, nor do I wish them evil. I wish they would revisit the visionary approach from back then instead of trying to become the zillionth collaborative project management tool.

  2. Out of curiosity several days ago I decided to install the new version. Well, good thing I did it on secondary Windows laptop. The v10 is not the update I hoped to receive. Previous macOS version already had cleaner look while lacking some Windows functions. I hoped new version will take best parts from both desktop clients (ok, maybe with some trade-offs I can live with). Yet they basically ported iOS one. On desktop it feels like an alternative homebrew slow java/emulated client for my EN database. Certainly NOT going to update EN on my primary device in the nearest future. v10 bre

  3. Would it be possible for Evernote to provide a more comprehensive list of the features they have removed from the product in version 10? Are import folders coming back? Nowhere did it say that by upgrading, you would lose this important feature.

  5. I have done it but because I renewed through Apple, so I requested through there and stated the product was not within my expectations, and Apple allowed me to get back the money. I do strongly recommend others to get the refund, especially if you have renewed through Apple no more than three months you are eligible to do that. (I am not sure if Google Play and Windows Store can have this policy) I don't think I am taking revenge on the company, but users who don't think it has met their expectations can have a right to act. Especially after we have tried every means to communicate with t

  6. You destroyed Evernote with this new version. Why don't you think twice about ***** people's lives? Everything that has changed has changed for the worse. I have been using it since 2012. The worst version ever. The slowest and dumbest.

  7. 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

  8. 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

  10. I've been doing that with Ford for ages, but do we see a 6-wheel SUV? Oh no. Corporates can be so unreasonable... Notion is great and can do so much; but if you already have one job it's distracting to have to learn another speciality before you can get back to it. Like a concert pianist looking for a new instrument and being given an axe and shown a tree...

  11. Exactly. This fits in very well with: Me, too, and I'm just disgusted. It all speaks to a fundamental shift in software away from relative transparency and honesty in selling a product to people who might find it useful towards gulling the as many people as possible into a cycle of perpetual payment for whatever the company feels like providing at any given time. There's no more sense of any contract to deliver on. There are hundreds (thousands?) of posts all over these forums from people who dislike the new version, ranging from "Meh, not very good" to "You've trashed decades

  12. This is a repetition of what other people have pointed out, but I feel the need to add my voice in the hope that the people in charge will see what the problem is. The new version is completely unusable and I have downgraded back to version 6. 1) No preferences What kind of ridiculous nonsense is this? A productivity tool like this NEEDS to be customizable to suit people's actual needs. Forcing users to change our workflow around your defaults is not ok. Give us all the options from before and more. Some things need to be switched off or adjusted. Most notably... 2) L

  14. Right now, with the legacy version, I can format my notes in whatever font I plan to use on the document I'm going to create from that note. Fonts are limited to I think 5 in the new version and it hampers a lot of people, including coders. It's one of the main reasons I've been a paying customer of Evernote. If I'm copying something from a note I've made in the new version of Evernote, I would have to reformat it from their font in Word or LibreOffice or whatever. I could do that. I could encrypt my notes in Evernote. But I can't see any reason to pay to use Evernote at all if I need wo

  15. Evernote is a product, not a religion. I've been using it on Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS since 2013 because it did what I needed it to do and it was useful enough to justify the expense. So far, all I've heard from Evernote is how the new, improved version will help them by causing them less work. None of the few new features helps me in any way, and the loss of the old features means this product no longer does what I need it to do. My renewal comes up in January. Why would I spend money on a product I don't like? I'm not canceling out of revenge. I wish them well. They simply are

  16. @Stefan H. Subject to the 50 note limit mentioned by @donnydl, you can create a table of contents (or at least a list of links to multiple notes), by selecting the notes you want, then select the three dots in the pop up menu for processing multiple notes and select Copy Internal Link. Then you can paste that list of links into a note as a table of contents. I am not sure if there other elements to the old table of contents feature, but this largely accomplishes the same thing for my workflow.

  17. This is ridiculous. Also after the recent upgrade I'm regularly getting this issue with notes showing up blank. HORRIBLE quality control. I can't believe Evernote was ok shipping something with so little QA. Absolutely unprofessional. These are NOT mistakes, these are management decisions around priority and where to put resources - if they cared about the quality of their product, they would have invested in enough QA to ensure it actually meets any remotely acceptable standards. They didn't, instead they are hoping to sneak by and offload this pain on their end users. Shame.

  18. Hello! Today we are releasing Evernote for Mac 10.4 (v 10.4.3 build 2071). This release includes a top requested feature: top list view. Please find it in your view options menu. Additionally the view options menu has been added to search results to make switching there easier and a new column (URL) has been added for viewing note URL data via top and side list view. We're aware that most of the list columns are not sortable and are working on addressing that limitation. It is available now via the Mac App Store and as a direct download version from our website.

  20. Why why why would you change a perfectly good user interface and totally complicate it? This new version does not make it easier to create a note or to change the notebook for the note. It makes it harder. It requires more touches. There’s also a massive White space in the main note View. Who made these decisions? Why don’t you consult your user community before you did this? Evernote used to be the easiest app on my phone to use and now it is one of the most complicated. I hate the new version. In addition to this, as I have stated before, it’s absolutely unacceptable that you allow foreign d

  22. 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

  23. I was getting irrationally frustrated that everyone was reacting so badly to Evernote's mistaken strategies here because I haven't been affected at all* - yet. Good news - I've got to the stage now that I don't care what anyone else intends, or says. Being aware of the occasional dangers of accepting updates as soon as they appear, I checked the initial EN10 launch thread months back for reaction, based on which I changed my preferences early on NOT to even notify me when updates were available in Windows or Android. I kept the last public versions for all my devices, and it's

  24. I'm a long long term Evernote user. This upgrade -- and what we've learned about the company from the way it has handled this forced upgrade -- has caused me to revisit my goal of finding an alternative. Have spent an hour on Devonthink this morning, import was simple, it feels feature complete so far. And it lets you encrypt your database -- which is the #1 reason I have been meaning to get out of Evernote for a while. Anyone here know why we haven't all already switched to Devonthink? If you're an Apple only user... what am I giving up by moving from Evernote to Devonthink?

  25. I'm assuming that it's some middle manager with a little bit of power (we've all experienced that guy, right?) and he's managed to completely break the main product of the company.. But.. "it's OK because I know better! And the users will come around when they see my genius.." No. Andy! (or whatever your name is, but it's probably Andy) you've just broken the big, cash cow product of the company and alienated a lot of users who are very passionate about the product and are now very vocal about that. And ultimately it doesn't matter what "the suits" do now, your "passionate and newly

  26. That about sums it up. This is most likely because Evernote has moved away from being an enterprise work tool to positioning itself as a basic note manager. It's frustrating to watch them come up with new features that people are no asking for when some of the core problems (such as syncing data) continues to be a problem at times. They simply were not getting enough people to pay them money. When you give stuff away there is less value.

  27. 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.

  28. 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

  29. It is a real shame. I put the small company I work for on the business version as note taking and sharing was so easy. I also put all my personal admin on the paid version despite having onenote. Today I asked IT to migrate everyone on to Onenote by end of January and have transferred everything personal to Onenote in prep for cancelling my subscription. With all the changes (a) you cannot scroll through pdfs but have to click slowing everything down (b) moving notes etc always seems to require some extra step (c) requiring separate logins for work and personal spaces in the work accou

  30. I'll certainly look into it. It's amazing to have a paid subscription (not a corporate one, since I'm a semi-retired academic) and no access to any EverNote tech support. Their latest "update" trashed a number of features. I have used it to store jpg files to incorporate into my lectures, but now there's no longer a cut & paste option. The search function has also been trashed. You can't search within a notebook (you're forced to search all notebooks) but even then, it won't search, even the titles, never mind content. Thanks Chronistin for the tip on Notes. There are many, man

  31. 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

  32. As for importing notes, be careful. Notion does auto detect tables and takes them over to their own format - this butchers some notes like emails sent in html format and similar stuff. I really like notion, have been using it for some time now. But for my purposes, it is not an EN replacement. No way to store all data locally, no API (yet) and therefore no way to automate things, no indexing of document / image content.

  33. Just wanted to share this as an example of how simple this could be, Nimbus Note have a public roadmap: Nimbus Roadmap - Nimbus Note (nimbusweb.me) It doesn't have any dates or expected ship times but at least it gives users a sense of what they are working on and what is to come. This was my initial wish in this post that EN did something similar just to give the users some general idea of what is happening as the lack of communication is what is causing a lot of unrest in the community I feel.

Paste `~/Library/Application Support/` and press Go. If you don't find this directory, try `~/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/Data/Library/Application Support/` and press Go. 4.

  36. Hi. Careful what you wish for... I'm also on 5.33. I raised it with Support and they said it's because I have a big account (currently 52,000 notes). They worked some magic for me to try 10.x out, but I immediately started getting duplicate notes and other issues . Plus it took forever to load. So they unmagicked me and 5.33 is back while they work on the volume thing. I do get the new version in a Basic account with about 100 notes, so I can play there if I need to.

  39. This is perhaps the worst software update ever. What happened to EN? Do you have any idea how much you have been worked into our workflows? And you treat that as nothing. Arbitrary terrible changes, reductions in functionality. No heads up. Just everything you shouldn't do to customers. Again, what happened? Heads need to roll. I went back to legacy and ALL OF MY NOTES NOW HAVE DEFAULT SEGOE 10 FORMAT. Are you kidding? I am visually impaired and have set larger fonts for MANY HUNDREDS OF NOTES.

  41. Removing the feature of "email a copy" is a COMPLETE FAILURE on Evernote's part. I have been using this program for over 10 years, and EVERY DAY I must use this feature to send my manager daily notes so he can do his billing to clients. I don't want to cut and paste them into an email, another waste of time. I just installed the update today to 10.3.7 and it's a nightmare. Too many weird things happening and the way it's organized is HORRIBLE. If the email feature is not restored in the next update, I will have to find another program to use. And don't tell me to use the SHARE

  42. The decision to remove the Outlook Clipper from Evernote is appalling. I have used it every week, sometimes every day, for years. It is a vital part of my workflow. Please bring this fundamentally important feature back right way! I still cannot believe that Evernote has been ruined in this way.

  44. 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.

  45. I agree that it's time to start looking at alternative options to Evernote. The Evernote management is utterly clueless and if they're happy to release a beta release to the public that is objectively worse than the previous version, then there is no reason to hold out confidence and remain with this product.

  48. Developers with any sense (and that is being called into question, I'm aware) don't release dates/timelines for features. But I agree that a simple table of "coming soon / working on it / gone for good" would actually restore a sense of rational confidence in many users who have been severely shaken by this.

  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'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
