  1. Jonny: if you go back to page 1 of this thread you'll find a post from NightStalker with an external link for downloading old versions. I'll echo it below for late arrivers to this thread like you and me. !! NOTE: DOWNGRADING IS NOT RECOMMENDED OR SUPPORTED BY EVERNOTE STAFF !! (but it works to get away from 5.0.x) http://mac.filehorse.com/download-evernote/old-versions/
  2. OK, just to clarify: my confusion stemmed from the use of the phrase "home brew" which I took to mean "distributed via the excellent mac package manager called homebrew": http://mxcl.github.com/homebrew/ To distinguish the evernote web site installer from the app store version, you might be clearer to use "in-house" or "web distributed" instead.
  3. Grumpy: I'm an avid homebrew user, but I'm unfamiliar with the provenance of the homebrew version. When I do a "brew search evernote" I get no formulae. I think I followed a link of yours to the 'homebrew version' for v5 on another thread, and the .dmg I got was indistinguishable from the one I downloaded from the evernote web site... ah, maybe that's the difference? The "homebrew" version is downloaded directly from the web, as opposed to the version distributed through the mac app store?
  4. Joining with a chorus of other longtime EN users on this thread, I just downgraded from v5 to v3.3 on my mac desktop. I was not terribly happy with the new v5 (notably the unreadable font size) so I kept running v3.3 on my laptop, but I was willing to work around the stylistic shortcomings in v5 on my desktop. Then, as with many other users, the upgrade to 5.0.3 totally broke my desktop application. Syncing stopped working entirely. As a premium member I submitted a ticket with activity log to the support team, and was told to reinstall. After several re-installs this morning (with careful "sudo rm -rf" to erase absolutely everything) I've given up on v5. Thanks to nightstalker for the filehorse link I'm back-upgraded to v3.3, and not looking forward. I do appreciate the presence of evernote employees like Jackolicious on these boards. I believe (hope) you guys are sweating this out and working hard to fix these bugs, but I'd also second Boatguy's comment that this is an unacceptably poor release. I've wasted several hours now dealing with this beta-quality version. Although EN is a free app for many, some of us premium users are paying annually, and you won't keep us if future releases are similarly untested. Also: many thanks to the loyal evangelists like nightstalker, gumpmonkey and others that provide pages and pages of useful support while jackolicious is hopefully occupied with bug-fixing.
  5. I went back to another mac where I still have Evernote 3.3 instead of the new evernote 5. I was reminded that we used to have an option to set a default text size for the "Source list", "Note list" and the "Note text". Am I right that in Evernote 5 we now only have control over the "Note text" font size? Here's a link to a screenshot: http://imgur.com/08SkS
  6. Would be great to be able to adjust the Evernote application font size. That is, the font(s) that are used in the side panels, the list of notes, note cards, snippets, etc. I can make the text I type into notes as big as needed, but I still have to squint at the list view (especially with high-res displays). A global setting in the Preferences / Options would be sufficient, but even better would be some keyboard shortcuts to zoom in or out I'm a Mac user, but I believe this is a missing feature on Windows as well.
