  1. Hi. I'm just trying out the new UI now. First reaction, wish I hadn't switched. But haven't figure it all out yet.

    Question: How do we quickly tag multiple notes?

    In the past, I would select notes (in list view) and then drag and drop them onto a tag in the sidebar. But now it seems we can't drag notes onto tags?

    How else can we quickly tag notes, especially multiple notes at a time?

    thanks!!

    Hi. As in the previous version, select a couple of notes, you'll get a new view on the right, and then you can type in the tag. It is actually pretty nice this way.

    As everything in UI 5.0 - fast way is gone and "pretty" slow way is maybe more pretty.

    All of these features are slower or much slower in UI 5.0

    Multiple tagging

    v4 - select notes - drag them to tag

    v5 - select notes - move mouse to label tag - click and write down tag

    Browsing notebooks

    v4 - moving in tree using keyboard arrows - very fast!

    v5 - you have to click on each notebook in tree view ( must be switched on in menu view-sidebar-notebooks ) much slower

    Adding notebooks in stacked notebooks

    v4 - click on staked notebook with right mouse button - select new notebook in ....

    v5 - click on notebooks. create new notebook ( can be done before using shortcut or menu etc ) - But you have to move in in the right place. So you have to change to Notebook view. There you have to find two items and drag one into another

    Renaming notebooks

    v4 - click on notebook in tree view press enter ( or F2 in windows/linux )

    v5 - change view to notebook view - you have to find you notebook, then you can rename it same way. Switching views always means that you have to find item. It takes time.

    Deleting notebooks

    v4 - click on notebook with right mouse button and select delete

    v5 - change view to notebook view - you have to find it and rename is same way.

    Organizing notebooks

    v4 - drag an drop in tree view - you always see what is in the notebook you want to move.

    v5 - first you have to swich view to notebooks - then you will not see what is inside so you have to remember what acctually are you moving and where.

    Renaming tags

    v4 - click on tags with right mouse button and select rename.

    v5 - again you have to switch to separte window. Again you can not see what exactly are you renaming. And I forgot to write that when you are changing view, you have to change it back!

    This all the time must swich view UI is terrible.

    In previsou version - I had one view and I manage to organize everything without switching somewhere else.

    Please: At least return back removed features to tree view ( notebook ) and tag view.

    In notebook treeview is missing:

    - keyboards browsing

    - popup menu with rename, delete, adding new subnotebok,

    - enter/F2 to rename

    - and drag and drop features!

    In tag view is missing:

    - drag n drop function as in v4,

    - popup menu to rename or delete, remove tag from all notebooks and everything what was in V4

    In my opinion: New version should be step forward. Not backwards. Removing function and forcing user to change view just because of renaming notebook etc is very big step backwards.

    New features for me would be:

    Glowing tags which are used in current notebook ( or another visual helper ).

    Adding small icon of tags to all notes just to see if I have already tagged or not ( with posibility to switch off the feature )

    More levels in notebooks - not just one - stacked notebook. Up to level 10. But 3 would be sufficient.

    Add tree structure to tags e.g. Family(and there, John, Peter etc ) When I click on tag family I would see all notes taged family and also tagged with its members. ( John, Peter ) - minor importance ( but still much better then removing features! )

    This is the right place, Evernote staff read pretty much every post.

    I guess you know that going back isn't going to happen.

    Your best bet is to add constructive criticism detailing what you'd like to see.

    Old version:

    Arrow UP+DOWN+LEFT+RIGHT to browse ALL notebooks in tree view.

    In any notebook I could use WHEEL or TRACKPAD to scroll up and down. I did not need to move mouse or to click on it. I just use wheel or scroll using two fingers on trackpad.

    4 KEYS and SCROLLING to browse ALL notes with knowing where I am looking ( in which notebook ) Very fast!

    No mouse move, no mouse click! And everything browsed.

    5.0 Version.

    You have to use MOUSE and click on each notebook just to look what is inside. When there is a lot of notes you have to move mouse to next window and scroll there. ( or use keyboard to scroll down )

    Then you have to click on next notebook. You have to point with a mouse on tiny treeview. Or select it harder way with more click in the middle of right screen.

    Try it yourself.

    Look what is in each notebook in UI 5.0. Very very slow. Evernote becoming useless!

    You can just use Cmd+J to open the notebook selector and use up down arrow keys to select a notebook press enter to open it and again use arrow keys to browse the notes.

    Old Version:

    First notebook: clik on treeview of first notebook

    Next notebook: press down arrow

    Next notebook: press down arrow

    Next notebook: press down arrow

    Together: One click + 3 keys.

    UI 5.0

    First notebook: cmd+j = 2 + down arrow to get first notebook = 3 + enter = 4 keys just to enter first notebook.

    Next notebook: 4 keys ( previous steps ) + one arrow key more ( next notebook is under first one ) = 5

    Next notebook: 5 + one arrow key more = 6

    Next notebook: 6 + one arrow key more = 7

    It is together: 4+5+6+7 = 22 keys.

    Old: Click + 3 keys.

    UI 5.0: 22 keys.

    Thank you for advice. Mouse is maybe slow solution, but faster then this.

  4. The new Evernote 5.0 UI is bad. Please return to the previous UI which is much better and lets me be more productive.

    I couldn't find a way to give feedback or report a bug and therefore posted this topic. I hope it reaches the right people at Evernote.

    Agree, 5.0 UI is very very BAD!

    Not possible to use keyboard in tree ( tree must be first switched on from menu )

    Only way to browse notes is to click click click. Or display all notes or sub notes.

    I was using Evernote because I could store and find notes relatively easily.

    Now it is not possible.

    When somebody is playing with it and spent a lot of time just to organize notes he can maybe be happy. He can play with 5.0 even longer.

    Sometimes I only remembered that I store some note in there. Now it takes years just to find it.

    When I know what I am looking for I can press COMMAND+SPACE on mac and I find it.

    But when I do not know what I am looking for exactly, I am only convinced that it is there, I am lost with 5.0 UI!!!

    With previous version i just clicked on TREE and using ARROW keys I was able to quickly iterate through notebooks.
