  1. Oh, and I forgot to mention most people at my small company use Evernote daily.
  2. This point seems to elude so many people. Evernote as far as I am aware is not a charity and -- after a brief flirtation as a potential Unicorn - is trying to simply be a company that makes an excellent product that it hopes people will pay for so it can turn a profit and stay in business. I sometimes trial other note taking apps and think seriously of leaving, but in my experience none come close to the simplicity and reliability of Evernote. I also have confidence in the new CEO and his desire to methodically improve the product in a slow and steady fashion. I want the bells and whistle of the web app in my Windows 10 environment, but I'm willing to wait until a stable version is available and the testing is over...
  3. If being able to place items in different parts of a page as you can currently do in OneNote is really important to you, then Evernote will be a disappointment. I have used both, and OneNote is essentially a large page which allows you to click anywhere and write text, place an image, audio, etc. anywhere you want. You can then resize and drag the items around the page to your hearts content (as an aside, this feature/metaphor is the very reasons I stopped using OneNote as I found it really confusing, and cumbersome). Evernote is much more like Notepad on Windows. Straight forward and linear, although you can paste image, PDFs, Word docs, etc. but they fall inline, rather than being able to place them anywhere. The table idea might work as a bit of a work around, but it will not replicate what you get in OneNote b/c the tables are based on rows and columns, whereas OneNote is more freeform. As someone said above, just try it for yourself and you be the judge 🙂
  4. Did anyone ever find the solution to this? I still have notes marked "Shared Via Work Chat" that I cannot delete even though I have deleted all my work chats.
  5. I'm hopeful the little icon next to the U for underline (to the right) is something that will offer additional colours beyond Evernote yellow! But as I say, to me it just suggested this little icon might be in. Guess we will have to wait and see.
  6. Agreed re. colour highlights not just yellow, and it looks from the video like there is a new "pen" feature that suggests this is going to happen 🙂 I have oscillated constantly over the years -- stick with Evernote, go to OneNote, find something different?? I have GBs of notes in Evernote so departing is a significant decision for me. However, since the new CEO joined I am glad to see a clear focus on two things - a consistent interface across platforms (thank goodness!), and a focus on the stability of the software. Not sure if it's just me, but the Windows and Android versions I use seem much more stable in 2019 than previous years. Less (hardly any!) crashes, no lost notes, etc. etc. This video was really enjoyable. Understated and focused on improvements...nothing flashy, just making things better. My two cents: tags must be viewable, Share is a feature I just don't use in Evernote.
  7. Great point. That's pretty much where I ended up too.
  8. ? Nice to read something positive. I've used Evernote for a looong time to. Loved it, hated it, abandoned it and come back to it. I found the differences between working on a Mac and then using it on iPhone AND an Ipad was confusing, there were endless sync problems (esp with Shortcuts disappearing on one device, or being overwritten by old shortcuts). Ever since I moved to a Microsoft Surface and only use it on the surface (I got rid of my iPad) things got much much better. Everything was on my Surface and I now use it for pretty much everything - GTD, file storage, project management. I tried to use WorkChat and signed up for a business account for a while but unfortunately we use Slack at work and it is just so much better for sharing notes and files between everyone, so at work that's all we used. That said, the Slack integration with Evernote is AMAZING. It is the single best new feature of Evernote that I have used in years. I can throw Slacks into Evernote and turn it into a task, and I can put files directly in Evernote from Slack. Then, just to complete the picture, the Evernote plug in for Outlook is equally awesome. Evernote is simple (that's a plus after trying OneNote and just getting confused by its interface which is messy, overly complex) and in fact the only thing I can think I would like added is mark up and the ability to highlight text in multiple colours (yes, I know that's been asked for for ages) ... other than that, it's somewhere I'll stay for a long time.
  9. Was there ever a resolution to this? I have the same problem on the iPad 10.5in (and had it on the iPad Air I owned previously). It's really frustrating as I need to close the app and then open it again to get a new note.
  10. Yes. As I posted earlier in this thread: on iOS, for each contact card, you tap the three dots (the "more" button), and select the appropriate option. Great stuff Scott, thanks so much. This saved me a lot of time! Regards Darren
