  1. I removed Evernote Thursday because of perpetually stuck web clips not importing, and installed ver 10.5.1 for iOS yesterday. Downloading selected notebooks is a very different experience now: so far, my largest notebook, which contains more than 11k notes, is almost 60% downloaded since yesterday. This is a new and welcome change to initiating offline availability. Hopefully the company will continue fixing what they broke, with subsequent releases.
  2. My largest notebook contains approximately 10,000 notes. Major instability and download times occurred - more than once.
  3. The note edit protection toggle button at the bottom of a note Is supposed to prevent note changes. But tags, and notebook location can be changed without tapping the edit button: I can add and delete note tags, move the note from one notebook to another, and the changes are saved. The note has now been edited. @Shane D.can you bring this to the Dev team's attention? I posted about the topic a few weeks ago but there was too much editorializing.
  4. A loss for words I have spent the past several weeks trying - unsuccessfully - to download the notebooks I want to be offline, and have become more and more angry about the pile of rotting garbage that is Evernote v10 for iOS. I believe that either @DTLowor @PinkElephant suggested deselecting the offline notebooks in settings, then restarting the app. And then begin downloading the selected notebooks again - via settings. For that, thank you. Son of a ***** if it didn't work! I did this with the notebooks one at a time, smallest to largest, until finally only the largest one re
  5. That makes sense, but I do belive my original post merits further discussion, as Evernote's Edit Protection feature is far less robust than it could be.
  6. As a paid member (premium) I have access to this. Thank you for the illustration.
  7. ...and where might I find this magic in the iOS app? I don't see it in settings?
  8. So at first I had no reason to doubt that the edit protection toggle button at the bottom of a note in the iOS app - v10.3 would preserve all aspects of a note from being changed. Well, it turns I was wrong in thinking that. You see, there actually is more to a note than just its content: you have tags, and notebook location. So imagine my surprise when learning 5 minutes ago that without tapping the edit button, I can add and delete note tags, move the note from one notebook to another, then another, and the app will sync the changes. This seems - to me - to be a glaring de
  9. How about core functionality being restored first? Better yet, how about a mea culpa from Evernote, perhaps a restoration of apps that work, while beta testing is conducted with user input? A little frustration is appropriate, I think...
  10. Hi @PinkElephant, thank you. i see that one of the notebooks with a small notes count, after several iterations - as you said would be the case - the offline setting remained off. Still waiting to see if the setting switches to not offline for the larger notebooks, while keeping the downloadeed content, and am waiting for awhile to recheck
  11. @Shane D.I downloaded ver 10.3 (1108952) the day it was made available, and to date there are still 4 notebooks stuck at nearly downloaded - per the green progress bar - and those bars has not moved at all for any of the 4 notebooks. 1 notebook contains approximately 10944 notes 1 notebook contains 31 text notes 1 notebook contains 1237 notes 1 notebook contains 1020 notes These notebooks comprise almost all of my 13GB of notes What gives? Version 8 of the app was frustrating at times, but NOTHING compared to version 10.3. At this point, I'm pretty frustrate
  12. But it's still excruciatingly slow to download offline notebooks, still drains the battery more quickly than any other app I have installed, still allows partial editing of notes even when "Edit" has not been selected. Well... maybe someday they'll populate version 10 with version 8 features that worked. Maybe.
  13. Yes, that's correct - they are offline notebooks. But since the content was already downloaded, what is the benefit of of the app downloading all over again the content? What I was trying to say was that the new app is so much slower than the old app at doing the same tasks, that I felt the only option was to rely solely on the legacy desktop app.
