  1. In response to my own question, as per this webpage the Evernote Helper is a feature not yet available. Great job, Team Evernote! Great update!
  2. Used to be able to drag a doc (or multiple docs) from the Finder up to the Evernote icon at the top of the screen. A new note would then be created with the embedded doc(s). Was this functionality removed in v.10.0.10?
  3. This is a travesty. Looks like a lot of folks are complaining about this and getting their individual posts merged into this master thread. I used the Submit Feedback option from the Help dropdown to complain about this. There is even a specific feedback area with something like "what do you think about search?" I suggest everyone submit feedback via this mechanism to the Evernote team.
  4. Looks like the keyboard shortcut for search is gone in the latest 10.0.1 on Mac? I used to type CMD+J and a search window would pop-up. Documentation here says the Search in Evernote keyboard shortcut is "Not Available" in the new version. This baffles the mind
  5. Hi PinkElephant - I don't believe you will be able to reproduce the problem on your MacBook. I never experience these issues on any of my Mac laptops. Everything is the latest and greatest on my MacPro. Cheers...
  6. Took a quick screen capture. I wish it also grabbed that damned pinwheel. Aside from the slowness rendering a PDF, it's nearly impossible to scroll through a doc in-line. I'm trying to do that near the end of the capture. This is not an issue on my mac air... Screen Recording 2019-06-25 at 12.02.19 PM.mov
  7. I believe this particular problem is somehow related to an interplay between Evernote and Mac desktop OS X display drivers/graphics system. The problem is extremely laggy in-line (in-note) display of PDFs and other embedded docs (Word, PP, etc.) It's so laggy (constant pin-wheeling) as to render Evernote almost completely useless as a serious productivity tool. The catch is that this is not an issue at all on any Mac laptop I've tested with - including an older, underpowered Air. The laggy issue is on a fully spec'd Mac Pro (late 2013 cylinder model) with dual GPUs. I've completely given up hope that this issue will be resolved. It's been ongoing over many revisions.
  8. An update if anyone cares: We're now at Evernote v.7.10 and the problem has *not* been resolved. It remains intolerably slow and nigh unusable for any note containing PDFs. Interesting post by "krutsch" - I can confirm that viewing embedded PDFs on my underpowered Mac Air laptop is not an issue.
  9. I am also aware that this forum is not Evernote support. I have not contacted them yet. I'm trying to get an idea if 1) these issues have been plaguing other users 2) there are any available performance tweaks
  10. @DTLow Usually PDFs are opened as an attachment - even that process to simply open the PDF is slow. But there are plenty of times when I want to peruse the doc in-line - even if it's just to double-check that it's the correct document. Inline viewing is garbage slow at this point. Just scrolling down a page results in pinwheeling. This was never an issue in the past. I would be able to scroll through a 900 page manual if I wanted.
  11. Running the latest 7.8 on Mac Pro 10.14.2 w/64G RAM + SSD Evernote is extremely slow w/pinwheeling on any notes containing PDFs. It's so slow as to render Evernote almost useless as a productivity app. Any other app (e.g., office, etc.) is blazing fast. This problem has persisted for a while - maybe as early as v.7.2. I've done a full and complete uninstall/install. Evernote is used within my group as a professional productivity app. For years it has been a repository for manuals and the like. Huge PDF manuals were never an issue but now 2 page PDFs result in a pinwheel. Are there any remedies I may have missed or any tuning parameters that can be set? Thanks in advance!
  12. Has anyone experienced any improvements at all since the last posting? As of now, I'm running Evernote 7.8 on a Mac Pro with 64G RAM. It is often intolerably slow. Especially if the note contains a PDF. My group uses this in a professional environment for thousands of notes. This solution no longer seems tenable. edit: Thought I'd add I have an SSD and have already done a complete reinstall...
