  1. You're right, it works fine. And i'm sure the M1 are the best to make the new Evernote work fine. But if all programs use as much memory it may begin to make the computer very slow. Chrome is using too much memory, Evernote too, if you have Photos / Music, Spotify and some other always-opened programs, you will see that all the memory is used and the computer is swapping. On very fast SSD drivers, but it is swapping. We can see that many programs created for Silicon chips use less memory and are blazing fast. Too bad it's not the case for Evernote right now...
  2. Same for me, I'm still waiting for a M1 optimized version to hope for less memory usage. Not sure it works though. In the meantime, you can try Evernote Legacy : it is not optimized for M1 but way better on memory usage and with all the good old Evernote features I'm still using it and having it opened all time it still is below 1GB memory (while Evernote 10 grows to 2GB in less than 4 hours of usage)
  3. Hello, I love the Evernote web clipper but I have just read an interesting article about the CPU and memory usage of Chrome extension and Evernote's one is one of the most CPU intensive of the top 100 extensions https://www.debugbear.com/blog/2020-chrome-extension-performance-report Is there a plan to optimize the Web Clipper to make it smaller for the Chrome app ? I have disabled it and will re-enable only if needed but it would be better to optimize it and avoid people having slow browser because of this tool Thanks F.
  4. I agree. I have stopped being silly and played a bit more with Evernote 10. Even if I must close it after use to avoid keeping too much memory on this application, I felt it was really better than in the first versions and I'm happy the problems with GIF I had declared are now fixed and this feature is working perfectly as before. Again, I wish the Silicon version could bring a bit more performance and less memory usage and I'll be almost ready to switch from Legacy to the real one
  5. Thanks, interesting article. It's true that on my 8GB M1, I don't feel issue with memory even if there is more than 8 or 10GB used. But if I go further and open too much programs using too much memory, I can feel it badly and everything becomes slower. No miracle even with M1 And I agree too, the fact that Evernote 10 is slower than legacy is not only a memory problem. Just that using more memory is another bad point against this version and this revolution with Evernote moving from native apps to Electron Framework app.
  6. The subject of the thread is Apple Silicon M1 ? Yes I agree, and i'm talking about using Evernote with Apple Silicon M1. And Evernote Legacy works extremely well with M1 and uses around 700MB RAM while Evernote 10 is really slow and begins eating 1.2GB RAM and can end with 2.5GB while working on it ! And yes, I feel it affects other apps running because it eats more than 2GB of memory. I have several applications opened on my computer. When I have Chrome, iTunes and a few other tools opened, I don't feel good when Evernote 10 adds 2GB of RAM Usage. But again, going back to
  7. Yes it may work well with Mac M1 but did you try Evernote Legacy ? The Legacy version as well as the version before 10 is extremely fast, doesn't take 2GB of memory with two notes opened and has all features we liked and we did not want to lose. I think we all don't want to have a Silicon version just because we want big performance. We just hope that with Silicon native it will be faster. And I really hope that because i would love to be able to use the v10. Thanks to your message I have seen that 10.6.9 existed (my 10.5 said that there were no new version !) and I discovered that a
  8. I completely agree with @keruchan. Evernote is destroying what was the greatest part of their tool : a way to keep good notes and access them quickly. The notes have less features now and it's incredibly slow. With Electron framework, even if it becomes better with new features or optimization I feel it will still use huge amount of RAM and be slow on all computers (even M1 thunder speed ones) The Evernote Legacy can help you keeping the same good old Desktop program but I'm afraid it won't stay too long. To reply to AlbertR, I think before removing any feature for display p
  9. No I have not tried the iOS, I will try that to see how that works. I'm sure it's not the priority to be compatible with M1 chips but it's again a proof that Evernote is doing a bad job with this new version : moving to Electron app with slowness and issues may at least have provided a way to have an automatic support of M1. It seems not to be the case...
  10. Hello, to be short and clear, I hate Evernote 10. I can't understand how such a beautiful program can be destroyed by a new version which is so slow and missing features. But, as I mostly use Legacy version, I want to test the 10 on my new MAcBook Pro with Silicon chip. The problem is that it seems the newest version of Evernote still isn't universal and still using Rosetta to work on M1 computers. I can't believe we are forced to use a bad tool and while other companies have already converted everything we are still using a Intel compatible version for Evernote. Please tel
  11. Hello, since the newest iOS or MacOS version of Evernote is arrived I have a big issue with the GIF animations in my notes. I create notes about videos of technical skills and I like to make small GIF files out of a part of the video to show instantly in my Evernote notes. It worked perfectly but I think that in the new version the small GIF are running fine but the GIF files > 10MB are not showing but are only available as downloads. I would like to have at least an option to be able to see the animation running automatically even with big GIF files. That's another
  12. I have made a ticket about my issue in downloading. They suggested me to go in Offline Notebooks settings, disable the Offline notebooks, then add the Notebooks one by one. It worked fine. I think that enabling Offline for all notebooks launches a big complicated download that can stuck some downloading. By doing one by one, it is really fast and the progress bar is correct and disappear as soon as the notebook is ok. Too bad Evernote isn't more explicit about that while downloading.
  13. Hello, thanks, it is the same for me but I don't see icons for notes, only for notebooks.. I wish I could be sure that a specific note is offline while the progress bar of a notebook is still visible. Again I have issues about small notebooks with everything downloaded but still a progress bar ..
  14. Too bad there is no icon or something .. Imagine somebody going to holidays where network is not present .. it's not easy to check whether Evernote has done the offline job or not .. (in my case i know that 1/2 of the notes are not synchronized after 3 days of having deleted and reloaded the app)
  15. by the way, i there a way to know if a specific note is downloaded offline or not ?
