  1. I have the same problem to: freezing, especially if the search field is not cleared after previously using the app. Force killing the app from the iOS app switcher is the only way I’ve found to resolve it. This happened on my last iPhone (iPhone 8) and still happens on my new iPhone (XS) and my 11” iPad Pro. I’ve tried reinstalling / redownloading offline notebooks. Nothing fixes it. I’m reaching the end of my patience with Evernote. Ive been a paid user for years and have slowly seen the price go up and the bloatware go up while the core functionality and stability has gone down.
  2. How did you get on with the bug report terrymullet? I have the same problem on my (Android) phone, although I only get this problem when I don't have a data connection. As soon as my phone can access the internet again, evernote syncs and the saved search function works as it should. Simon
  3. The new app looks much nicer but is very difficult to use. The main problems for me are: - No thumbnails of pages - No titles displayed for the different notebooks - More taps required for basic functions (pen, undo and erase) - Scroll speed is poorly calibrated to my writing pace. Unfortunately the changes Evernote have made have so damaged the core functionality of the app that it is now significantly worse than many competitive writing apps. The above four issues (except perhaps the "more taps required" issue) should have shown up in beta testing. If they did not, Evernote needs to expand it's collection of beta testers, making sure that it includes people who use the app for its core function (handwriting lots of notes) on a regular basis. I understand that there will be teething problems with app updates, but this is a huge change---it feels like a beta version of a writing app---one that I would quickly delete in favour of the old penultimate if that were possible. Fortunately, it has made me realise how vulnerable I have made myself by putting so much of my professional work into Penultimate and Evernote. The developers can alter these apps on a whim, with very little beta testing by core users, and there is little we can do about it. Back to pen and paper for me.
  4. This is definitely a bug with the OSX version, and not a problem with my local search database: - The problem occurs on two different macs (my Macbook Air at home and my iMac at work), and each has all notes stored locally; - The problem doesn't occur on my Android tablet even when using offline search (all notes are stored locally on the tablet); - The problem doesn't occur when using the web app. I'm going to contact Evernote and file a bug report.
  5. Thanks for your help gazumped. I tried perm* and various variations, but the note doesn't appear in the search results. I do use tags as a work-around, but it's not ideal as it means I have a huge number of tags. If Spotlight can find the note immediately, it seems like Evernote should be able to, especially as that's the point of the product. I suspect it's a bug, but it happens with other search terms too, not just the one I described above.
  6. Update: I just updated to the latest version of Evernote (v 5.4.3) and the problem remains.
  7. There seems to be a problem with searching for notes with Evernote that contain a given string. Even when I know the string is in a note, Evernote cannot find it. This happens relatively frequently---so frequently in fact that I no longer use the search function in Evernote, and use Spotlight instead. Here's an example: I have a note whose title is "Permutation groups class" (without the quotes). The first line of the note is "permutation groups class" (without the quotes). I have a screenshot of the note attached. If I type clear all selections, etc, before searching, and then type "permutation groups class" (without the quotes) into the search box, I get lots of hits, but the correct note is not among them (see screenshot--search results listed in alphabetical order). The same thing happens if I capitalise the letter P. When I then type "permutation groups class" (with the quotes), Evernote tells me that there is no note containing this string (see screenshot). Finally I give up, and use Spotlight, and of course the correct note is the first hit (see screenshot---apologies for the quality, but OSX won't screenshot while Spotlight is engaged so I had to use a camera instead). The final screenshot is of the note itself, in which you can clearly see the phrase "permutation groups class". This phrase is of course not the only phrase causing problems. Interestingly, when I repeat this experiment using the Evernote web client, searching the above phrase with quotes returns my note immediately, and without quotes it returns the correct note, albeit buried in a massive list, fairly low down (but at least it returns the note!). I am at a loss as to why this happens. Accurate searching is so fundamental to Evernote's business model that I can't believe that the developers could have implemented searching so poorly in several versions of the OSX client, so it must be something I am doing wrong. I am using version 5.4.1 on OSX 10.8.5, although I have had this problem for several previous versions of the Evernote client. If anyone can help, I'd be really most grateful.
  8. That's a shame. Thanks for letting me know Owyn. I suppose I'll just have to hit the spacebar every time I open a note so that Evernote registers an edit... sms
  9. I'd love to be able to order my notes according to when I last accessed them. Thanks! sms
