  1. Do you have the same issue with newly created notes? I performed a test by merging two newly created notes and two notes that I imported two weeks ago. The newly created notes merged without error. The older notes failed. I copied the note content from the old notes to a newly created note, and it merged. Based on this non-scientific test, I'm willing to wager that the bug fix applied in the recent Evernote release only addresses new notes and not the older ones.

  2. Not to go on a complete rant about Evernote's latest update; well, maybe just a tiny one. I heavily rely on the "Merge" feature as part of my organizational workflow. I accept the fact that there will be bugs from time to time. Therefore, I am okay with doing a little copying and pasting to allow the bug fix process to work in the background. However, this latest bug has impacted both the note merging capability and the copy-paste function (i.e., notes don't merge, and copy-paste won't save).

    The "Contact Support" feature that was previously provided as a handy dropdown option is nowhere to be found; see added frustration. Additionally, any attempt to directly contact Evernote Support to create a support ticket is followed by an endless loop of signing in to Evernote, create a support ticket, sign in to Evernote....

    This issue is related to Evernote for MAC_OSX.

  3. Thank you Jeff, and yes, I meant to type notebooks. Unlike the Android version, the iOS version doesn't save where you last left off.  Which for me, this creates far more clicks than I want to perform. In translation, this is going backwards in tech, and not forward. It's simplicity of workflow that brought me to love Evernote but of late, that objective is getting downgraded in priority with each new release. 

  4. @gazumpedthis only appears to work for pictures/images saved to the camera roll or to use the camera to snap a photo. Great, but what if I want to attach a PDF, xls, or other file type. This take us back to the original issue. If Evernote could find a way to add functionality / integration with Dropbox, Box, etc. we would be on the fast track to an improved UX. 

    To add context as to why this is important, mobile first initiatives are in flight and the trends that I'm seeing indicate that consumers are discarding their laptops / desktops in favor of mobile devices I.e. iPads, Surface devices, etc.

  5. From a user experience standpoint, having to leave Evernote to go to email to complete what should be a simple in app task seems rather cumbersome. I would think a developer could simply add the attachment functionality directly in the menu bar of the note. In fact, the small camera icon is already there (add photo attachment from Photos or camera). The ability to add attachments from, Dropbox, Box, One Drive, etc. should be fairly simple.

  6. I would assume this to be a simple request. I'd like to add an attachment from Dropbox / Box / One Drive / iCloud Drive, etc to an existing note. This option is available in the desktop version but not in the iOS version. There doesn't even appear to be a way to merge multiple notes in the iOS version.

    The workaround that I've been using is to create a new note with the attachment and merge them at a later time via the desktop version. Time consuming and not practical for longterm solution.

    With most, including myself, looking to leverage my iPad more, this would help to close the functionality gap between the iOS and desktop platforms.
