Oke, let's be constructive then (the first post in this topic is mine). Why I don't like the new interface at all: If it ain't broke don't fix it. It looked and worked like Apple Mail which is a good thing (sidebar, folder tree, favorites bar). Now it looks a bit like Apple Mail but works differently. It looked and worked like many other Mac Apps such as the Finder, Reeder, iTunes, Notes, Reminders, iPhoto, 1Password, you name it. All these appsthat let you manage many items. They all work more or less the same. Evernote 5 resembles these Apps but there are too many subtle differences. The cards in the cards view are bigger than they used to be. There is no option for small cards anymore. I don't want the Notes icon in the side bar but it cannot be disabled I don't want the Notebooks icon in the side bar but I do want the notebook tree in the sidebar (like in any other Mac App). If I disable the Notebooks icon I cannot have the Notebooks tree in the sidebar. The Notebooks view is completely unusable, both the list view and the icon view. What is the purpose of it? What does it add compared to the sidebar? I simply don't get it. I can't change the toolbar anymore. There are no buttons in the toolbar for changing views. There is no separate button for changing sorting in cards and snippet view. There is no separate button for switching between small and large cards in cards view. The Notebooks tree in the side bar doesn't have icons anymore. I prefer the shortcuts in the favorite bar like in Apple Mail. I prefer the 'All Notes' at the top of the Notebook tree instead of as a separate icon I don't like the mix of icons and notebook tree in the sidebar. I cannot see which notebook is selected in the notebook tree. In short, the old interface was fine. I cannot get used to the new interface and cannot find the right combination of view settings to make it work in a way that I like. My biggest problem is the sidebar. I want a 'normal' sidebar like the old Evernote, Apple Mail, the Finder and iTunes. And I agree with Cesco about the combination of colorful icons and light gray text in de sidebar. It doesn't look good. There are of course improvements, e.g. the lack of ads and the frame around a note in the note editor.
