  1. Same problem here, exactly. And to be honest, I'm very frustrated with years of issues from Evernote. This is at core a note app, and text editing has always been buggy. To update and have it impossible to edit notes is ridiculous. You guys make enough money to do this right. Please, get a small team together and re-write this software from the ground up. I'd be happy to help with specs, UX, UI, PM, coding. But you know what to do. Consider the existing Evernote an elaborate prototype. Now, go back and start with a modern framework and clean code. Make it work correctly from the ground up. Now is the time.
  2. Simple idea: I would like to be able to filter and search within the notes which I have created directly as text notes vs. those which came from web clipper. If it doesn't already exist, create an attribute for notes that says how they were created and allow searching/filtering by note type.
  3. Still having this issue. Win 8.1 Really annoying. Also inconsistent; it usually has this issue, but sometimes it will track new lines past the scroll overflow/bottom of screen. Has been many months, have lost track as there are numerous issues with basic text note editing. Still disappointed with attention to detail in core functions, Evernote. Please fix this. In all seriousness, maybe you need a re-write to the entire text editor module. It create horrific markup behind the scenes, lists are a mess.
  4. Also having this issue - all my contractions are red-underlined. Annoying. Please fix, Evernote. And FWIW, there are a number of other buggy behaviors in the text editor - given this is a core feature of the software, I would suggest a complete re-write, following common UI conventions with things like lists. Feel free to message me for more info, I know this comment is ambiguous and off-topic, but I do have notes I've recorded on the subject specifically.
  5. I consider the current functionality of Evernote atrocious, given its length of development, user base and resources available to it. There are major issues that interfere with usability and have me cursing the developers every single day I use it. The extension itself lags and interrupts tagging - my tags are sometimes broken into 3 pieces as I type because the extension interrupts the process multiple times. Consistent issue, unacceptable. UX fail. The broken tags (partial words) that result from UX issue#1 often lack the ability to delete (the small "x" does not appear) until I click over to the "tags" field and back to the individual tags. UX flaw. The extension should perform string matching instantly from the local database; instead, it lags. UX flaw. The extension should deliver "recently used tags" and "most used tags" options to facilitate clickable tagging. Obvious feature lacking. UX deficiency. The extension should clip near-instantly to local storage and synchronize in the background, not clip directly to the internet. I am left waiting dozens of seconds often, and sometimes the sync fails entirely and I must retry. UX fail.One further suggestion for the desktop client - just to get this complaint and suggestion complete: tags which are manually typed in should have an automatic type associated with them for easy searching. Similarly, all notes from web clipper should have a universal type applied. Those clipper issues I think are really indicative of lack of effort or diligence on Evernote's part. You've been at this years, you've built up a customer base of millions; and these features have been obvious every step of the way. Your software leads by sheer inertia and momentum, not by excellence. Please correct these specific deficiencies, and your software will be tremendously more user-friendly and useful. Looking forward to the improvements, and the Evernote staff response.
  6. IMO this is not acceptable. Find a way to use local storage. This is an incredible inefficiency in what should be a "click-and-forget" operation. Sometimes it takes dozens of seconds to clip, or hangs entirely. Not all of us have access to reliable high speed internet where we need to get work done.
  7. I agree with OP totally. I have been using Evernote for some years, and most importantly for plain-text notes and lists. The list formatting is broken; I make numbered or bulleted lists, and if I erase a line, it leaves a phantom bullet or number with space. For example: first item second item . third item fourth item That #3 would occur after I deleted something in its place, and if I backspace in front of "third item" or delete behind "second item", then "third item" will jump up to join "second item" with an empty #3 in my list. A phantom space that is impossible to remove without deleted the entire list. Please fix this, thanks! And p.s. to jbenson2, I agree Workflowy.com is an excellent outliner. I'm even paying $5/mo for their service, a rare thing for me. Now hoping they release their offline version soon.... oh, the arrogance of companies making web-only apps, as if the world was only hyper-connected first-world cities. I'm a Canadian expat living in Ghana, and it is clear that most of the world cannot take advantage of cloud-based computing or web-based apps. Gripe over.
